## When Will We Reach Keter for the 3rd Time? Simple Gematria Provides the Answer.

Keter is the summit of true reality, the point where all the veils and illusions have been drawn back and the light of Hashem shines unfiltered. It’s where we and He are One.

The first time man stood in the light of keter (the crowning sefirot/dimension), the highest level of existence, spiritual and otherwise, attainable was before the original sin in the Garden of Eden.

The second time was 2448 years later when the Ten Commandments were given. But on the 39th day the golden calf was created and we fell for the 2nd time, all the way back to square one.

There are 42 letters in the spelling of the names of the sefirot, corresponding with the 42 paths of the Tree-of-life, which R’ Chaim Vital of blessed memory connects with the 42-letter Name.  The name Keter (CTR) comprises the uppermost 3 letters of the 42, meaning that because the Israelites couldn’t wait 1 more day–actually just the last 6 hours of that day–for Moses to return as promised, they paused at the gates of Keter (CTR) and as we know it all game crashing down, everything shattering along with the 2 tablets.

And the third time?

Since the ancient kabbalistic science of gematria reads the energy levels in the letters, which allows us so see the words and names for what they really represent at their source, let’s look at the spelling of Keter (CTR), whose simple gematria is C (20) + T (400) + R (200) = 620, as in the 620 letter in the 10 Commandments.

So 3 Keters (CTR) would be 3 x 620 or 1860.

The Tikunei Zohar explains that the light in the ineffable Name of G-d, the YHVH get expanded through squaring, which coincides with R’ Chaim Vital’s comment that all Torah light is spread through squaring. As the Zohar illustrates, Y (10) + H(5) + V(6) + H(5) gets squared like this: 102 + 52 + 62+ 52 = 186.

And as we can see, 3 Keters = 10 x (YHVH) squared, or simply 1860 = 10 x 186. Thus the equation illustrates that the light of the YHVH spread fully throughout the 10 sefirot (dimensions) will be achievable with the 3rd Keter.

The first two times we reached Keter, were thus untenable as they were incomplete and the unbalanced light was too powerful.

But when will that be?

We need to turn to the much revealing complete gematria for that.  The complete gematria combines the standard numerical value of a word or phrase with its ordinal value (the placement of the letters within the alef-bet). And as it happens the ordinal value of Keter (CTR) is C(11) + T(22) + R(20) = 53.

Before we put it all together lets examine that a little closer. After all, it is a very important name. the ordinal vaue of Caf(C) is 11, signifying the 11 sefirot when Da’at (the reservoir of knowledge) is included (as it must be) , and the letters Taf(T) and Resh(R) together = 42, as in the 42 letters in the names of the 11 sefirot.

When all 3 letters (CTR) are added together, they total 53, as in the value of the word Gan, representing the first instance of our Keter, Gan Eden (the Garden of Eden). Nevertheless, the 3 Keters would then be 3 x 53 = 159.

And 159 is the small gematria value of the Upper 42 Letters of the Name of G-d, which is the YHVH expanded 3 times by spelling out the individual letters.

Now, adding the standard value (1860) to the ordinal value (159) for the 3 Keters gives us 1860 + 159 = 2019.

And as it so happens the year 2019, coincides with Rav Ashlag’s predictions and all the prophecies about the date for the geula (final redemption) and thus the opening of the third Tree-of-life window in 5778 (2018) and it’s sealing in 2019.  (See Nothing is Random for more details and scientific evidence).

With the kolel of 1, the year 2019 could easily be 2018, but as understood within Nothing is Random there is a definitive separation in the time-spatial continuum that is occur marked by the separation between the dates 2018 and 2019. Indeed, the Tikunei Zohar makes the point of telling us that the word Makom (place/space), as in the place where Jacob rested his head and had the famous dream of the angels rising and descending, has the numerical value 186 directly because of the squaring of the letters in the YHVH.

Ezekiel 3:12
“בָּרוּךְ כְּבוֹד-יְהוָה, מִמְּקוֹמוֹ”
“Blessed be the glory of YHVH from His place”
‘Place’ is מקום.  His place is also Keter, and in spirituality distance is time, so His place as it connects with our world becomes a time frame as well.

2018 is the so-called end of days, and 2019 is the beginning.

Let’s recap a bit.

10 x YHVH2 + the 3 expansions of YHVH = 2019

= Keter x 3

When the Light of the YHVH spreads completely throughout the 42 Pathways of the Sefirot, we will be at the 3rd Keter.

How do we know that 2019 is actually 2019 ce and not 2019 HC? After all, the Covenant of Abraham, the great and glorious time was promised, occurred in 2018 CE.

Because when we spell out the name Keter (CTR) as Caf-Tav-Resh (CP-TV-RYSh), its ordinal value is 107 and the sum of the integers (1+2+3+..107) = 5778 (2018 CE).

Moreover the complete gematria sofit value plus the kolel of the spelled out Keter (CP-TV-RYSh) is 1860 once again, or 3 x 620 (CTR). It’s Perfect!

Would you expect anything less perfect, at the level of keter, the dimension of pure perfection?

So then, why 3 letters in Keter, and why 3 Keters?

Because as the Zohar and the Kabbalists explain, the Tree-of-life is a 3 column structure (system). The ill-fated Gan Eden Keter headed up the right column. The short lived 10 Commandments Keter headed up the left column. And the only one which could really last, will be the balanced central column one that will soon form and be sealed in place in 2019 CE, B’H.

The 3rd window will open soon and the question will be not whether the Light is ready to receive us, but whether we’re   ready for the Light.

## The 8th Day of Chanukah; All the Lights are Lit.

Today is the 8th day of Chanukah, Zot Hanukkah, and the Zohar advises us that whenever we see the word Zot in the Torah, it’s a connection to the end of days, the finale redemption, which we know is really just the beginning or the Tree-of-life reality. Today is the day, all 44 physical lights are lit and blood (DM of value 44) of the judgments (m’damei of value 89, same as Chanukah) are removed. It’s also when all 156 lower spiritual lights are lit, connection us to Zion(of value 156), the point above Jerusalem where all the spiritual energy enters our world, the point also vaguely concealed in the middle of the last (malchut) line of the Ana B’koach (42-letter Name).  It’s also the day when ALL 314 (upper and lower) spiritual lights are revealed connecting us Metatron (314), who opens the gates for us this day. (See Chanukah meditations for how the candles lights remain lit and thus sum to these numbers)

It’s no coincidence the numerical value 156 is found 107 times in the Tanakh, as the sum of all the integers through 107 is 5778, the date given by the tzaddikim for the advent of the tree-of-life reality in our world.

We’ve just finished reading the 8 days of the special Chankuah Torah portions about the sacrifices from Numbers (B’midbar) 7:1-89 and 8:1-4, and while the 89 verses of chapter 7 obviously correspond to the gematria value of Chanukah (89), the 4 verses of chapter 8 correspond to the 4 periods of exile.

One simple way that these two portions are connected is in the sum of their two names. Naso has a numerical value of 351 and BeHa’alothekha has a final value of 1007, which together sum to 1358, or keter (1000) plus 358, the numerical value of Mashiach.

That would be fine and dandy but of little value to us, unless we also knew that encoded into the sacrifices for Chanukah, the festival of lights designed to bring Mashiach, was the date for Moshiach’s arrival.

Before we explain about some of the deeper meanings of the laundry list of sacrifices that were to be made by the 12 tribes in the Mishkan or Holy Temple, we should note the complete numerical value of the “Menorah” found in Chapter 8 in BeHa’alothekha is 359, the numerical value for Satan (the evil inclination) and 359 is also Mashiach in Aramaic, the language of the Zohar.

It’s common that the numerical values represent of the cure and the problem have the same exact value, which is why the Menorah (359) is our cure for overcoming Satan (359) in the same way Moshiach (358) is the cure for the snake (358).  Energy is usually  depicted as a wave so to visualize this picture a symmetrical wave along the X-Axis of a simple X-Y graph whereby the peaks reach 358 units high and the troughs 358 units low. Superimposing the energies cancels one another out.

Back to the sacrifices:1 Silver plate weighing 130 shekels (ShKL); 1 Silver bowl weighing 70 shekels; 1 Gold bowl weighting 10 shekels; 1 Young bull; 1 Ram; 1 male lamb (1 year old); 1 male goat; 2 oxen; 5 rams; 5 male goats; 5 male lambs (1 year old).

You have to admit it’s an odd group of items, but with everything in the Torah, there is always method in the madness. So adding them up, reveals that (130+70+10+1+1+1+1+2+5+5+5) = 231, as in the 231 Gates of Wisdom, which we know from Abraham’s Sefer Yetzirah are the number of pairs of letters that can be made from the 22 letters of the Alef-bet, which he called the 22 building blocks of the universe.

Besides helping us to cancel out the sins that our souls committed when they were joined as one within Adam during the 130 years that he was separated from Eve, the 130 shekels of silver for the plate that we sacrifice each day corresponds to Jacob’s age when he entered Egypt to begin the exile in Egypt. This itself is no coincidence, as his 130 years also served to mitigate that self-same sin of Adams. 130 is also the value of Sinai, where the Israelites received the Torah 210 years later. Of course, if we add together the weight of the silver and gold (representing right and left column energies) we get (130+70+10) = 210.

By way of further explanation, the 70 shekels of silver correspond to the 70 family members with Jacob who entered Egypt. It also represents the 70 nations of the current exile and the year 70 CE when the Second Holy Temple was destroyed and the current exile began. And while the 10 shekels of gold correspond to the 10 Utterances received at Sinai and the 10 Sefirot (dimensions) of the Tree-of-life, the full weight of metals was 210 shekels corresponding to the 210 years of the Egyptian exile.

The value of the word Shekel (ShKL) itself is 430, corresponds to the 430 years of the full first exile from the Covenant of Abraham, which began in 2018 HC and ended with the crossing of the YM Suf and the reception of the Torah at Sinai in 2448 HC.

Nevertheless, a deeper secret within this weight is that “210 shekels (ShKL)” are equivalent to a numerical value of 210 x 430 = 90,300 or 903 x 100, an 903 is the recognized sum of all the positive integers through 42, and since the spiritual tenet that nothing is ever lost is repeated over and over again within the concept of the Chanukah light, 903 is the full inclusive value of 42, encompassing all the energy of the integers that came before it. Going back to our depiction of energy as waves, we can picture 903 as the sum of the peaks of energy level 1, plus that of energy level 2, etc all the way through energy level 42.

As you recall, the Chanukah reading consists of 89 plus 4, or 93 verses, another allusion to 903. Moreover, the word Shekel is repeated 26 times during in the 93 verses of the full reading and is 26 the value of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH).

Furthermore, the word shekel (ShKL) spelled out (gematria milui) is 620, that of keter, the highest, crowning sefira (dimension).  Then in the often repeated phrase amongst these verses, Shekel B’Shekel H’Kodesh,” the word H’Kodesh (HKDSh) likewise has the gematria milui (spelled-out-value), including the kolel, of 1000, which, as stated above is also representative of keter.

Therefore, the phrase Shekel B’Shekel H’Kodesh can read as “the crown in the crown at the crown,” or “keter of keter of keter,” which is the highest level imaginable, or unimaginable to be more accurate.

As for the date for the arrival of Moshaich, the word H’kodesh in gematria milui sofit has the numerical value of 2008, as in the recent year 2008 CE, when from a financial standpoint the world began its implosion, when the world’s stock markets declined a collective 42%.

2008 CE would be, of course, 10 years before the prophesied time frame of 2017-2018 CE (5778 HC), and could be accounted for with the kolel, but there is much more concrete evidence that ties the sacrifices much more precisely to this very specific date.

For example, there are 41 combined occurrences of the 3 words in the phrase Shekel B’Shekel H’Kodesh found in the reading of the sacrifices.  Their average value 5778 , as in the year 5778 HC (2018 CE).

Shekel B’Shekel H’Kodesh

((15 x 409)+(12×430)+(14×432))/3 – 3 (kolel) = 5778

Then there are also 6 different phrases throughout the sacrifices that have a numerical value of 5777, (representing the year 2017 CE).

Of the 5845 verses in the Torah, there are only 13 incidences where the value of a phrase that occurs wholly within a single verse has the value of 5777 and one of those is verse Numbers 7:87 of the sacrifices. It is the summary verse for all the sacrifices: “…12 young bulls, 12 rams and 12 male lambs a year old, together with their grain offering. 12 male goats….”

This is significant because the geula was prophesied to most probably occur in the period 5777.78 to 5778.28 .

As for the year 5778, amongst the 93 verses of the sacrifices there are 16 occurrences of phrases (defined as a contiguous grouping or words) with the total value of 5778, the last of which is in the final verse of the sacrifices, Numbers 8:4, where we find the 22-word phrase “…the Menorah, just as The Lord Commanded Moses. This is how the menorah was made: It was made from hammered gold…had shown.”

As Volker just revealed to us in the comments to one of our recent blogs the number of verses in the Torah (5845) = the number of days in 16 years or (16 x 365.25 + 1) thus we have yet another deep connection between the Torah and 5778.

Could it be that we are to count 16 years from 9/11/01?

And not coincidentally, the number 84 (or twice 42) represents Pad, redemption, the union of the upper and lower Mem-Bet (42-Letter Names) necessary for the geula.

But possibly even more telling, of the 5845 verses in the Torah, 184 phrases wholly within verses, or 3.14% of the total verses, have a value of 2019, as in 2019 CE, the first year of the new era of Mashiach as prophesied by the tzaddikim. (See Nothing is Random in the Universe for detailed 2019 connection)

And of these 184 phrases, 35 are within the 93 verses of the sacrifices, an unfathomably large percentage. Moreover, 184 is the numerical value of Pkad, which chazal has independently connected to the coming of Mashiach and which we wrote about in a previous blog.

So of the 93 verses of the sacrifices, fully, 42 (1 + 6 = 35) are either connected to the year 2017 (5777), 2018 (5778), or 2019 and another (16 + 41) = 57 times are specifically to 5778 through the repeated occurrences of shekel b’shekel h’kodesh.

(5778-5779)

and

57 More Times the Sacrifices Connect to5778 (2018)

shekel b’shekel h’kodesh

Let me be clear: There is no statistical possibility that this is coincidence. And if you grabbed a calculator and did the math, you saw that 57/93 = Phi (.6180…).

Even more precisely, it worked out as 57/93 = .612903, or 612 (brit/covenant) and 903, yet another allusion to the mem-bet (42-Letter Name) as described above.

What’s the message?

We now know what to connect to on Chanukah and as we light the candles, but it may be that we’ll have to make sacrifices. But is that a strange concept?  As we’re about to write about the Erev Rav, is would anyone not be willing to make sacrifice to bring Mashiach (the Messiah) and the Tree-of-life reality, and live a life with limitations.

By the way, the 4 verses in Chapter 8 of Bmidbar (BMDBR, which incidentally permutes to (DBR MB, “say the 42″) corresponds to the 4 exiles. And at the end of the 4th exile, we must indeed make sacrifices. Each of the 4 types of animals of the sacrifices had a specific purpose to help the 4 types of man.  But the gold and silver had other significance too: to open up the 231 Gates of Wisdom for us.

The complete value (standard plus ordinal) of silver, representing gevura/judgment or left column energy is 203, as in the first 3 letters of the Torah. And the complete value of gold, representing chesed/loving-kindness, or right column energy, is 28, as in the 28 letters of the Torah’s first verse. All 12 tribes were instructed to give both gold and silver in the weights/proportions described above for the sacrifices.  And just as (130+70+10+1+1+1+1+2+5+5+5) = 231, representing all the sacrifices, the complete values of gold and silver together (28 + 203) = 231 as well.

Not only do these 231 Gates correspond with the 231 letter pair combinations amongst the 22 letters of the alef-bet but 231 is also the sum of the positive integers through 22, just as 903 was for 42.  Gold and silver, money, assets, mean nothing in the achievement of the Tree-of-life reality–it can’t be purchased, but chesed/loving-kindness, and helping one another, these are the commodities that count.

Remember, all the 12 tribes gave equally. The sacrifices are made for the community. It took more than Moses; it took unity to reach the Tree-of-life opportunity last time. And also to build the Holy Temples. And it was disunity that blew the opportunity and crumbled the Temples.

The hope for the community lies in our individual sacrifices for the sake of others, for the sake of our souls. Satan equates to selfish desires; Moshiach to overcoming them.

Happy Chanukah to All!

Chanukah Sameach!
