Chanukah: 8 Days Designed to Bring Moshiach and Light Up the 70 Nations.

Chanukah: Eight days of Miracles Designed to Bring Mashiach

dreidelThis year more than ever, we must connect with all the cosmic windows. And it can be as simple as a child’s dreidel, or the chocolate gelt. Four sides corresponding to the Tetragrammaton (YHVH), but 4 sides engraved with the Hebrew Letters G, H, N, and Sh. Four letters whose numerical value add to to 358, that of Mashiach, the Messiah.

From the games we play to candles we light, the entire 4 dreidelsChanukah event is designed to help us bring Moshiach. And that’s where our consciousness should be. The eight days are a cosmic event, not a celebration of a miracle that happened because it occurred during this cosmic event. The light we ignite each night are to connect us to the special light of miracles available to us once a year for 8 days staring every 25th of Kislev (Sagittarius). It’s different light/energy than what’s available to us in the 8 days of Sukkot-Shemini Atzeret; and it’s different from the light available to us during the 8 days of Pesach (Passover); and it’s different from the energy available to us on the 8 other holidays throughout the year. In total there are 32 days of varying special Light/energy (besides the special light of Shabbat). These 32 days connects to the 32 Paths of Wisdom of the Tree-of-Life, through which these various lights shine unto us.

The oil lasted 8 days because the Light of Chanukah, Mashiach Light, lasted 8 days, not cosmic window 2the other way around. As soon as the special Light of Moshiach (Or Ganuz) was revealed into our existence, it was hidden. I learned from my teacher that on the first Shabbat of Creation, it was brought out for 32 hours then hidden away for the time of the Messiah. But for 8 days every year we can taste of the Light.

The letters of Mashiach (MShYCh) spell out Madlikim Shmona Yemei Chanukah (“lighting up eight days of Chanukah.”)

Chanukah Meditations

How to Count the 8 Days

As tasty as the jelly donuts are, the purpose of Channukah is not the joy of the celebration, but the joy of bringing Moshiach.

Even the books of the Maccabees dates the first war as 3585 HC, which coincides with the numerical value of Moshiach, which is 358.  The fight was for liberation, and so is ours today, liberating ourselves from the clutches of physicality.

One of the key elements of Chanukah is based on the spiritual tenet that nothing can ever chanukiah all litbe lost; once it goes from a latent(potential) state to physical one it’s forever present in the universe, whether we can physically see it or not. So the light of the first night, is added to the second and so forth until the 8th day when we have the light of 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8 = 36 days of light.

That explained, we can note that the sum of all the Torah occurrences of the words “first” through “eighth”—echad, sheni, shlishi, reve’i, chamishi, shishi, sheve’I, and shemeni—is (189+125+2+2+2+2+0+0) = 322 and since the sum of days (numbers) 1-8 representing all the summary Chanukah lights for the 8 days is 36 , and (322 + 36) = 358, the value of Moshiach yet again. And while 36 is just the result of rounding off the numerical term 35.8, the number 36 to the kabbalists represents the lamed-vav tzaddikim, or 36 righteous souls necessary at all times to maintain our existence in the universe.

The 44 Candles Sweeten the Judgment

How to count the candles

On a simple level, over the 8 nights, we’re lighting 44 candles in total including the shamesh every night, these corresponding to the ordinal value of the letters in Chanukah (ChNVCH), which is 44. It also corresponds to first letters of all 10 plagues, which also add up to 44. So you can see the power to create miracles is built into every aspect of these 8 days.

Moreover, the first plague was blood, dam, also of numerical value 44, and as the Arizal explains “the word “m’damei“, whose numerical value (89) equals that of the word “Chanukah“, is rooted in the letters dalet and mem, which spell the Hebrew word for “blood.” Blood represents the negative powers of judgment; our mission it is to sweeten that judgement and the lighting of the 44 candles are designed to help us. They nullify the kelipot before us.”

With every candle we light, we can sweeten the judgment in out lives and in the world.

As we’ll explore within the blessings, the 44 candles connect first and foremost to the regressive spelling of the higher name of G-d, Ehyeh, whose numerical value is 44, thus connecting us to Chochma and Binah;

EHYH

(E – EH – EHY – EHYH)

Counting Candles:

If our actions of lighting the chanukiya each night rekindle the energy from the night before and culminate in completeness on Zot Chanukah (the final night) then: On the 1st night we light 1 candle and it stays lit metaphysically for (at least) 8 days; and on the second night we light 2 candles that stay lit, we have a total of 3 lit (rekindled) that second night. On the 3rd night we are lighting (rekindling) 1 + 2 + 3 or a total of six; and so on, until we have 1 + 3 + 6 + 10 + 15 + 21 + 28 + 36 = 120, a familiar mathematical progression that seems to be oft used in the deeper meditations and connections of the Torah, and that we first learned about from Abraham in the Sefer Yetzirah, The Book of Formation.

geltIn the same way, the Shamesh would be 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 = 36. Thus 120 + 36 = 156 candles would be metaphysically lit, and 156 = 6 X 26 with 26 being the numerical value of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH). Moreover, the Arizal explains that 78 is the value of mazal (fortune), an integral part of the lighting meditations as will be explained below, and 156 = 2 X 78.

The Arizal further explains that the eight days of Chanukah are, or end up, at the level of latkas2hod, the same as a brit whose 8 days expire at hod before the brit can be performed at the level of yesod. Well, considering this, it’s noteworthy that if we assume that all our candles/oil last for 8 days, then in total, we are lighting 120 lights (which would correspond to the 120 permutations of Elohim) and the 120 years of Moses, whose soul is part and parcel with that of Moshiach in every generation. Then if we add the 36 lights for the 8 Shamesh (helper candle) that we light, totals 156, the numerical value for Yosef, who represents the level of Yesod. It’s also the value of Zion. And Yosef was born in 2198 HC, exactly 3580 years before the year 5778, when Moshiach (numerical value 358) is supposed to be manifest in our world.

The Blessings

The Ignition to all the Blessings

jelly donuts2When we start the blessing with the word Baruch, we need to keep in mind that it has the numerical sofit value of 708, which is the same as that of the 42 letters of the upper Mem-Bet, which is the ineffable Name YHVH spelled out through 3 iterations. This is no coincidence as it is from this Name that the blessings flow downward through the 6 levels (dimensions) of zeir anpin and into our world. It is also for this reason that the first gate from the Holy of Holies into our world has the dimensions 6 x 7 (the Gate of 42):

L’hadleek Ner Chanukah

Now regarding the Chanukah blessings on the words L’hadleek Ner Chanukah and the kavanot that we’ve learned from the Arizal, the 3 first letters Lamed, Nun and Chet, spell out in small gematria, 3,5,8 or 358, Mashiach.

The initials in L’hadleek Ner Chanukah (to light the Chanukah candle) spell the word Cosmic_RiverNachal (a holy Name that means stream or river, and also inheritance) and it has a numerical value of 88, which when aided by a kolel of 1 = 89, that of Chanukah itself.

Nevertheless, the concept of a stream is very important because by lighting the candles with the right consciousness we’re opening a stream of light (the energy of sustenance or shefa) from above into our lives and world. And the inheritance is the Messiah (the Moshiach).

As explained by the Arizal,the secret of 3 letters N, CH. L and Nachal comes  from the 3 words that comprise the 8th and 9th of the 13 Attributes of G-d : “Notzer Chesed L‘alefim.” The Ari further explains that the 8th sefira (level), which is Binah (Imma/Understanding) is where we are drawing this upper light from. Moreover, a key secret here is that once the 8th level is tapped into, all 3 upper levels (Binah, Chochma and Keter) are at once available to us. A river of divine light and blessing can flow into our world if we attune ourselves to it during the blessing and candle lighting.

So the first mediation is on opening up the flowing river (Nachal) from Binah, cosmic river 2Chochma and Keter through Binah into Zeir Anpin (the heavenly ladder that connects our world to Binah (the upper world). Zeir Anpin is represented by the aspect of the spe;;ed-out Tetragrammaton (YVD HE VEV HE) at the level called (Mah) of numerical value 45.

This is very important

We are further told that Mah combines with Binah through the alef(E) in the letter vav (VEV) to the regressively spelled Name Ehyeh (E, EH EHY EHYH) which is associated with Binah and has a numerical value of 44, just like the 44 total Chanukah candles that we will physically light over the 8 days.

Together, these two intersecting Names of G-d total numerically 45 + 44 = 89, once again the value of Chanukah(ChNVCH). Please note that it’s the Names that are important, the numbers just help us understanding a little of what is going on energetically in the spiritual framework.

It’s very important we grasp this unification because as Rabbi Chaim Vital of blessed memory explains, it through this very union of the YHVH (26) and the regressive EHYH (44) that the 70 Minsters of the 70 Nations are governed and thus all that stems from it in the count of 70, such as the final 70 years from Israel becoming a nation until the advent of Moshiach consciousness throughout the world.  Through the proper lighting of the 44 candles this year we have the power to guide that process forward.

EHYHyhvh small

(Shefa flowing from Binah into Zeir Anpin)


Second Meditation:

The value of the word L’hadleek plus the kolel (1) = (179 +1) = 180, and partially because of this the Arizal tells us at this point in the blessing to meditate on the 3 upper aspects of the Tetragrammaton (Av, Sag, Mah), which total numerically (72+63+45) = 180.

Av: (YVD HY VYV HY) = 72

Sag: (YVD HY VEV HY) = 63

Mah: (YVD HE VEV HE) = 45

= 180

tree10Any number times 10 indicates that number spreading throughout the 10 sefirot of the tree-of-life.  In this case, it’s 18 (Chai, life), and as Rabbi Chaim Vital of blessed memory explains “All Torah Light is spread by squaring,” so we see within the square root of  18: 4.2426. This is significant because 424 is the value for “Mashiach Ben David” and 26 is the value of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH).

Now, specific to the Channukah blessing is that the spelled-out (gematria milui) value of the letters nun (NVN) and that of the lamed (LMD) of L’hadleek Ner is also 180, thus giving us yet another connection to “Mashiach Ben David and the tree-of-life.

From the 18 words of the 13 Attributes, the phrase “Notzer Chesed L‘alefim” meansHe preserves kindness for 2000 yearswhich is a hint that our time of exile for the past 2000 years is coming to a close, and if we add the 18 to it, we get 2018 CE (5778 HC), the year the tzaddikim have prophesied for the coming of the messiah and the final redemption (geula). It is also the year (2018 HC) that G-d made His Covenant with Abraham, our inheritance (Nachal).

Indeed, the word candle, Ner, has a numerical value of 250 and thus the 8 candles have a chnaukah lightscollective value of 250 x 8 = 2000.

And so when we add the 180 of Av, Sag. Mah aspects of the YHVH to the 180 of L’hadleek Ner plus the kolel of 3 for said 3 aspects, we get 180 + 180 + 3 = 363, the numerical value of H’Mashiach, (“the Messiah”), which is what we should be mediating on when we recite L’hadleek Ner:

(Receiving H’Mashiach)

L’Hadleek

Ner

Regarding Ner, the Arizal tells us to combine the Names Ehyeh, Elohim, and Adonai with YHVH on the 3 different levels (Av, Sag, and Mah)  to draw down the light properly from Binah to Malchut:

(EHYH, ELHYM, EDNY).

If we take the first two letters of each Name (EH, EL, ED), they add up to 6 + 31+ 5 = 42, as in the 42-Letter Name of G-d, (the Shem Mem-Bet, known as the Ana B’koach).

Then if we take the third letter (EHYH, ELHYM, EDNY) in each (YHN) they add up to 10 + 5 + 50 = 65 the numerical value of Adonai (EDNY), which leaves (H,YM, Y) which sum to 5 + 50 + 10 = 65, Adonai (EDNY) again.

The main point, though, is that the 3 Names represent the 42-letter Name and 130, which anabkoach160-ksis the numerical value of the two synonyms, Sinai and Sulam (ladder). Now the total numerical value of the 3 Names (EHYH, ELHYM, EDNY) is 172, and when we add 1 for the kolel, it’s 173, as in the small gematria numerical value for the 42-letter Name.

The Ari further explains that at the word Ner in the blessing we should concentrate on combining the 3 Names (EHYH, ELHYM, EDNY) with the 3 simple (YHVH)’s. These 3 YHVH’s add up to 26 + 26 + 26 = 78, the gematria of Mazla, aramaic for mazal, fortune, which we want to draw into our lives when lighting the Chanukah candles. This process mimics the flow of the shefa, (life-giving light) that emanates from the 3 YHVH’s and flows from the Holy of Holies through the Gate of 42 into the Holy Temple and then our world.

Now the main point of the Arizal was that the 6 Names (YHVHEHYH, YHVHELHYM, YHVHEDNY)-add up to 250, the value of Ner, candle, but if we add 6 as the kolel, we get 256, which is the value for both H’Aron (Ark of the Covenant) and for Aaron who lit the Menorah as channel for us all.

 Ner

So when we recite Ner, we want to meditate on the 42-Letter name (the Ana B’koach), receiving mazal, letting  Aaron, the high priest and the only person in the Torah assigned the title Mashiach, be our channel to light the Menorah in our lives and world.

together with the 6 Names merging together as follows.


YHVH – EHYH (Chochma – Ehyeh)

YHVH – ELHYM (Binah – Elohim)

YHVH – EDNY (Malchut – Adonai)

We draw the light of blessing down from Chochma to Binah to our world, Malchut.

chanukah oilNow for the full understanding, we take the 3 Names Ehyeh, Elohim and Adonai plus the 3 Names Av, Sag, Mah from the L’hadleek Ner kavanot and numerically add them  (172 + 180) + 6 (kolel for the 6 Names) and get 358, Mashiach

So completing the recitation of Baruch though Ner, we want to have in mind drawing down the light from the Upper 42-Letter Name to the Lower 42-Letter Name though the 3 YHVH’s and into the 3 Names (Ehyeh, Elohim and Adonai) and thus igniting the spark of  Moshiach consciousness in all of us and spreading it throughout the 70 nations.

The Candle

The candle we’re lighting is the light of the Torah itself as evidenced by the spelled out, menora 1 lightgematria milui of the letters (nun-resh) of Ner (candle): (NVN RShY) = (106 + 510) = 616, which is the numerical value of H’Torah, which helps explain Proverb 6:23:

“A mitzvah is a candle, and the Torah is light.”

The Shamesh

The Shamesh, or 9th candle is much more than a simple helper candle. The 9th sefira is that of Chochma, Wisdom. and the unification from above that is associated with the 9th sefira is YHVH x EHYH or in numerical terms 26 x 21 = 546, which is the sum of the initials of all 10 sefirot, a clue that this unification helps us draw the energy down through all 10 sefirot.

The value 546 is also the total value of the Names of the 3 Patriarchs whose names began with the letter Yud, which connects them to Chochma (wisdom), the 9th sefira: Isaac (208), Jacob(182), and Jospeh(156).  It’s likewise a connection to Israel, which has a value of 546 when the kolel for the 5 letters is included, and whose name is found 546 times in the Torah.

So as we light the Shamesh we should meditate to draw down the light through the 10 sefirot and to put joy in our hearts.

The 25th of Kislev

Yet another connection between the kavanot and the words of the blessing is found gelt 2between the 25 letters of the union of the 6 Names and the value of Ner, 250, since 250/10 = 25, but most important these would be the 25 letters that the Zohar says is missing for the completion of the Mishkan and the 25 words that we know are missing from the completion of the Torah, which is exactly (80,00025 words). It’s also a connection between the 25 letters of the Shma Israel phrase and the 25th of Kislev, as explained by the Zohar.

The next obvious further connection is between the 80,000 words and the 8 lights and torah scrollnights of Chanukah, since the 4th root of the sum of all the words, letters, and verses of the Torah = 25 exactly. There are also 25 letters in lamed-vav (36) milui.

So note that the 25 letters in the verse “Shma Israel, Adonai Elohenu, Adonai Echad” (Hear O Israel, G-d our Lord is One) is found at Devarim 6:4 and the word Chanukah (ChNV-CH) can be broken down to the two numerical values 64 (ChNV) and 25 (CH), and moreover that the numerical value of the first and last words in that verse, Shma (ShMY) and Echad (EChD) plus the kolel (1) = 410 + 13 + 1 = 424, the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David.

Further to this line of reasoning, and as connected by the Zohar, are the 24 days of Kislev that proceed Chanukah and the 24 letters in the Baruch Shem phrase that follows the Shma Israel phrase.

So on the first night before lighting we should connect to the Shma Israel and mediate that we are completing the Torah as in the days of Moshiach, B”H soon.

 The OiI

The word for eight (8) in Hebrew is shemonah, and a simple permutation of the letters in latkasshemonah (ShMNH) gives us hashemen. “the oil” (HShMN), and also neshama (soul, NShMH), all of which have the numerical value of 395, that of the 5th word in the Torah, H’Shama’im (the Heavens).

And when we spell out the Shin-Mem-Nun root letters of the Oil they add up to 546, so we must keep in mind (Proverbs 27:9): “Oil and incense rejoice the heart,” and be joyful as we light the oil for that joy will spread through the 10 sefirot and be contagious throughout the world.

Proverbs 27:9 “Oil and incense rejoice the heart”

The 8 Nights of Lights

Now know this for every candle we light below, one is lit above. So for all the 156 metaphysical candles we light below plus 1 collective one (the kolel), another 157 are lit above, making 314 in total, and 314 is the numerical value of the Name of G-d Shadai (ShDY) and also of Mettatron.  As for the 156 candles , it’s the numerical value of Zion and as we said previously, Joseph, who represents Yesod of Malchut, where the light of Binah ends up on the 8th day. It’s is also the point where all the divine sustenance funnels into out lives and our world. Incidentally, Zion, of numerical value 156, is found 107 times in Tanakh and the sum of all the positive integers from 1 to 107 is 5778.

Moreover, if we consider all the cumulative lit Chanukah lights as a multiple of 8 days: 1 x 3 x 6 x 10 x 15 x 21 x 28 x 36 = 1008 then add 1 for the kolel, and double them for above and below, they total 2018 candles in all.  So in essence, each and every year, by fulfilling the mitzvot of lighting the Channukah candles we’re preparing for the arrival of Moshiach in the year 2018 CE (5778 HC), our inheritance.

Chanukah Gelt

Even the parve chocolate gelt we give to our children on Chanukah connects to Mashiach, geltas the Aramaic word for gelt is Dami (DMY) of numerical value 54, and since 5778 is the sum of all the integers from 1 to 107 and 5778 = 107 x 54, then 54, and thus Dami (Gelt), plays yet another role in connecting all of us to the coming of H’Mashiach, B’H very soon.

So bring joy to your heart and joy to the world this Chanukah and help bring the gift of Mashiach into our lives.

The Final 3 Plagues and the Final Redemption

Continued from The Hidden Mysteries of the 10 Plagues.

At the end of the parsha VaEra we’ve completed 7 of the 10 plagues, leaving 3 more to go in parsha Bo, as in “Come (Bo) to Pharaoh” when logic would dictate that G-d would say to Moses “Go to Pharaoh” That there are 3 plagues left was signaled (heralded) by the value of the word Bo (BE).

More significantly, this reversal of the action word seems to indicate a reversal in direction and also if G-d meant that He would accompany Moses; it indicates a new urgency. 

The sum of the initials of the first 7 plagues is 490 or 7 x 70, reflecting the 70 sub-sefirot of the 7 sefirot (dimensions) of Zeir Anpin-malchut (collectively known as heaven and earth).  These are the only levels we can access at all in any sense. Above them are the 3 upper sefirot Binah, Chochma, and Keter(Understanding, Wisdom and Crown) from which inspriation is drawn but not perceived. 

These first 7 plagues were to sway the Egyptians, but G-d needed 3 more to reach the souls of the Israelites who, according to chazal, were mired in the 49th gate of negativity and not able to break free of their desirs and ties to the world of material illusion, not unlike the situation we find ourselves in today.

At this point in the narrative, Pharaoh was willing to let the men go, but not the women.  As women are far more anchored in malchut, the material world, (not to say that they can’t be very spiritual, but kabblaistically this the sefira associated with women, the vessels) they were not yet willing to let go, pack up and move.  You see that in life today: A man gets an inspiration and tells his wife we’re moving. His wife tells him not on your life, requiring him to explain what his plan is, why, where, when, what, all the details, a hundred reasons not to go, when all he has is a vision.

The reversal of the direction in the logical wording is also indicated in the word Bo (B-E), which is Av (E-B), father, or even the Supernal father, when spelled in reverse. As is, by coincidence surely, it is the initials of Barack Obama (BE), and pronounced as such as well. Then again the initials play an important part of the understanding of the 10 plagues.  But don’t read into this, as it may just mean Barack Obama as our 44th president is a sign for us to pay attention to the signs.

And one sign is surely found in the gematria of the first 8 words (24 letters) of parsha Bo, Shmot 10:1. Not coincidentally, this is the 8th plague, 10th chapter and 24th paragraph of the Book Shmot (Exodus).  Including the kolel, the first 13 letters add up to 666, which we know from the tzaddikim is connected with the arrival of H’Moshiach, and the next 11 letters (as in the 11 initials of the plagues that add up to 541, Israel) (H BE EL PRYH CY) add up exactly to 424, the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David. 

These are signs of what’s to come, what we’ll need to go through, and the explanation of the process that both the Israelites in their exile and we in ours (had) have to grapple with in order to free ourselves.

To free the Israelites to choose for themselves the Tree-of-life reality, G-d had to complete all 10 of the plagues, akin to the 10 sefirot of the tree-of-life structure.

The 8th plague, Locusts, laid waste to the land, as only a locust could, eating and devouring everything in sight, leaving not a crumb in their path of devastation, totaling vacuuming even the essential material from their existence, leaving only dust to be consumed.

Even so, by the 9th plague, as the darkness descended, the Israelites were at the 49.9th gate of negativity since they still could only see the desperation of their situation and not the solution.  We can emphasize because we see for ourselves that as our circumstances become more difficult, we get further drawn into the problems and less able to see our way out.  When our savings are decimated, we’re beside ourselves. When food runs low, we naturally start panicking. And the more crazed we get, the less able we are to see clearly. In other words, the darker the situation, the less we see.

And thus we see that the sum of the initials of the first 9 plagues is 499, the numerical value of Tzva’ot, another of the Biblical Names of G-d.  Instead of our plight, this is what we should be focusing on within the darkness: the source of the Light.

Given the desperation of the situation one more plague was required.  And given that the initials of last plague are mem-bet (42-Letter name of G-d) not only does the total value of the 11 initials equal 541, that of Israel, we see that the Torah seems to be insinuating that the powerful aspect of G-d, called the Shem Mem-Bet (42-letter Name) was required for effecting the paradigm shift necessary in the Israelites vision and reality. This is just as it was with the great flood, Mabul. and just as it will be for us today, as chazal has explained that it is through the understanding of the Shem Mem-Bet that the geula (final redemption) will come about. To better understand the Shem Mem-Bet and how it can shift reality and your vision, we suggest you read The Genesis Prayer.

Another way to view this is that after we go through 9 sefirot (chochma) we still need to utilize the Mem-Bet to break through to the level of Keter. The sages are quite clear that the 10 plagues correspond to the 10 sefirot and that the final one is at the level of Keter(crown), but we can also see the word Keter (Caf-Tav-Resh) within the permutated letters of the final plague. The letters MCT BCVRVT become CTR MB CV TV,  or CTR (Keter), MB (42-Letter Name) CV (26, an appellation of the Tetragrammaton) and TV (the final letter Tav, signally the end and also representing Malchut). 

So the final plague, the killing of the first born, a circumcision (brit milah) and a pinyon ben, to remove the negativity and all connection to it for the good in us,  stretches from malchut to keter, all the levels (steps) in the final process. And who is present at all brit milah? Elihayu Hanavi, the one who will also herald the arrival of Mashiach.

The final plague was the hardest to bear, but was necessary to make a clean break, just as Abraham had to get circumcised in order to receive the 3 angels and get the blessing to have Isaac.  And just as Ishmael had to be born first before Isaac, and just as Esau before Jacob, all the bad seed and chaff had to be removed before the Light could shine through.  This is what the Israelites in Egypt had to endure and us today as well.  But we’ve been given powerful tools such as the Shem Mem-bet (Ana B’koach). We need to learn how to use it and use it to awaken ourselves quickly.

This blog will be continued with the explanation of how the gematria of the 10 plagues spells out the date of the final reception and more….

Chanukah: Eight days of Miracles Designed to bring Mashiach

Chanukah: Eight days of Miracles Designed to Bring Mashiach

It’s as innocent as the child’s dreidel, or the chocolate gelt. Four sides corresponding to the Tetragrammaton (YHVH), but 4 sides engraved with the Hebrew Letters G, H, N, and Sh. Four letters whose numerical value add to to 358, that of Mashiach, the Messiah.

From the games we play to candles we light, the entire Chanukah event is designed to help us bring Mashiach. And that where our consciousness should be. The eight days are a cosmic event not a celebration of a miracle that happened because it occurred during this cosmic event. The light we light each night are to connect us to the special light of miracles available to us once a year for 8 days staring every 25th of Kislev (Sagittarius). It’s different light/energy than what’s available to us in the 8 days of Sukkot-Shemini Atzeret; and it’s different from the light available to us during the 8 days of Pesach (Passover); and it’s different from the energy available to us on the 8 other holidays throughout the year. In total there are 32 days of varying special Light/energy (besides the special light of Shabbat). This connects to the 32 Paths of Wisdom of the Tree-of-Life through which these various light shine unto us.

The oil lasted 8 days because the Light of Chanukah, Mashiach Light lasted 8 days, not the other way around. As soon as the special Light of Mashiach (Or Ganuz) was revealed into our existence, it was hidden. I learned from my teacher that on the first Shabbat of Creation, it was brought out for 32 hours then hidden away for the time of the Messiah. But for 8 days every year we can taste of the Light.

Chanukah Meditations

It appears the purpose of Channukah is to bring Mashiach.

Let’s start with the books of Maccabees dating (for right or wrong) the first war in 3585 HC with the numerical value of Mashiach being 358.

One of the key elements of Chanukah is based on the spiritual tenet that nothing can ever be lost, once it goes from latent(potential) state to physical one it’s ever present in the universe whether we can physically see it or not. So the light of the first night, is added to the second and so forth until the 8th day when we have the light of 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8 = 36 days.

That explained, we can note that the sum of all the Torah occurrences of the words “first” through “eighth”—echad, sheni, shlishi, reve’i, chamishi, shishi, sheve’I, and shemeni—is (189+125+2+2+2+2+0+0) = 322 and since the sum of days (numbers) 1-8 representing all the summary Chanukah lights for the 8 days is 36 , and (322 + 36) = 358. And while 36 is just the result of rounding off the numerical term 35.8, the number 36 to the kabbalists represents the lamed-vav tzaddikim, or 36 righteous souls necessary at all times to maintain our existence in the universe.

The Blessings

The start of all blessings:

When start the blessing with the word Baruch, we need to keep in mind that it has the value (when using the caf sofit) of 708, which is the same as that of the 42 letters of the upper Mem-Bet, the Name YHVH through 3 iterations. This is no coincidence as it is from this Name that the blessings flow through the 6 levels (dimensions) of zeir anpin and into our world. It is also for this reason that the first gate from the Holy of Holies into our world has the dimensions 6 x 7 (the Gate of 42):

YHVH

YVD HY VYV HY

YVD VYV DLT HY YVD VYV YVD VYV HY YVD

L’hadleek Ner Chanukah:

Now regarding the Chanukah blessings on the words L’hadleek Ner Chanukah and the kavanot that we’ve learned from the Arizal, the 3 first letters Lamed, Nun and Chet, spell out in small gematria, 3,5,8 or 358, Mashiach.

The initials in L’hadleek Ner Chanukah (to light the Chanukah candle) spell the word Nachal (a holy Name that means stream or river, and also inheritance) and it has a numerical value of 88, which when aided by a kolel of 1 = 89, that of Chanukah itself.

Nevertheless, the concept of a stream is very important because by lighting the candles with the right consciousness we’re opening a stream of light (the energy of sustenance or shefa) from above into our lives and world. And the inheritance is the Messiah (the Moshiach).

As explained by the Arizal,the secret of 3 letters N, CH. L and Nachal comes very fittingly considering that the gematria of Chanukah is 89, from the 3 words that comprise the 8th and 9th of the 13 Attributes of G-d : “Notzer Chesed L‘alefim.” The Ari further explains that the 8th sefira (level), which is Binah (Imma/Understanding) is where we are drawing this upper light from. and moreover, that a key secret here is that once the 8th level is tapped into, all 3 upper levels (Binah, Chochma and Keter) are at once available to us.

So the first mediation is on opening up the flowing river (Nachal) from Binah, Chochma and Keter though Binah into Zeir Anpin ( the heavenly ladder that connects our world to Binah (the upper world). Zeir Anpin is represented by the aspect of the Tetragramamton (YVD HE VEV HE) called (Mah) of numerical value 45.

We are further told that Mah combines with Binah through the alef(E) in the letter vav (VEV) to the regressively spelled Name Ehyeh (E, EH EHY EHYH) which is associated with Binah and has a numerical value of 44, together they are 45 + 44 = 89, once again the value of Chanukah. This furthers connects us to the 44 (36 + 8 helper/Shamesh) candles lit during the 8 days of Chanukah.

(E, EH EHY EHYH + YVD HE VEV HE)

(Shefa flowing from Binah into Zeir Anpin)


Second Meditation:

The value of the word L’hadleek plus the kolel (1) = (179 +1) = 180, and partially because of this the Arizal tells us to meditate on Av, Sag, Mah aspects of the Tetragrammaton which total (72+63+45) = 180, at this point in the blessing. We’ll explain below what it connects to, as we don’t want to meditate in a vacuum.

Av (YVD HY VYV HY) = 72

Sag (YVD HY VEV HY) = 63

Mah (YVD HE VEV HE) = 45

= 180

Whenever we have a value of 18 or a multiple of it times 10 (sefirot) in the Torah or Kavanot coding, it has the same connection, which as Rabbi Chaim Vittal of blessed memory explains “All Torah Light is spread by squaring,” is that the square root of 180/10, or 18, is 4.2426. This is significant because 424 is the value for “Mashiach Ben David” and 26 is the value of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH).

Now, specific to the Channuka blessing is that the spelled-out (gematria milui) value of the letters nun (NVN) and that of the lamed (LMD) of L’hadleek Ner is also 180, thus giving us yet another connection to “Mashiach Ben David.

From the 18 words of the 13 Attributes again, “Notzer Chesed l‘alefim” meansHe preserves kindness for 2000 yearswhich is a hint that our time of exile for the past 2000 years is coming to a close, and if we add the 18 to it, we get 2018 CE, the year the tzaddikim have prophesied for the coming of the messiah and the final redemption (geula) and also the year 2018 HC the year G-d made his covenant with Abraham, our inheritance (Nachal).

Indeed, the word candle, Ner, has a numerical value of 250 and so the 8 candles have a collective value of 250 x 8 = 2000.

And so when we add the 180 of Av, Sag. Mah to the 180 of L’hadleek Ner plus the kolel of 3 for the 3 aspects of the YHVH, we get 180 + 180 + 3 = 363, the numerical value of H’Mashiach, (the Messiah), which is what we should be mediating on when we recite L’hadleek Ner:

Receiving H’Mashiach

L’Hadleek

Regarding Ner, the Arizal tells us to combine the Names Ehyeh, Elohim, and Adonai with YHVH on 3 different levels to draw down the light:

(EHYH, ELHYM, EDNY).

If we take the first two letters of each Name (EH, EL, ED), they add up to 6 + 31+ 5 = 42, as in the 42-Letter Name of G-d, (the Shem Mem-Bet, known as the Ana B’koach).

Then if we take the third letter (EHYH, ELHYM, EDNY) in each (YHN) they add up to 10 + 5 + 50 = 65 the numerical value of Adonai (EDNY), which leaves (H,YM, Y) which sum to 5 + 50 + 10 = 65, Adonai (EDNY) again.

The main point though is that the 3 Names represent the 42-letter Name and 130, which is the numerical value of the two synonyms, Sinai and Sulam (ladder). Now the total numerical value of the 3 Names (EHYH, ELHYM, EDNY) is 172, and when we add 1 for the kolel, it’s 173, as in the small gematria numerical value for the 42-letter Name, not surprising as the 42-Letter Name preceded them.

The Ari further explains that at the word Ner in the blessing we should concentrate on combining the 3 Names (EHYH, ELHYM, EDNY) with the 3 simple (YHVH)’s. These 3 YHVH’s add up to 26 + 26 + 26 = 78, the gematria of Mazla, aramaic for mazal, fortune, which we want to draw into our lives when lighting the Chanukah candles. This process mimics the flow of the shefa, (life-giving light) that emanates from the 3 YHVH’s and flows from the Holy of Holies through the Gate of 42 into the Holy Temple and then our world.

Now the main point of the Arizal was that the 6 Names (YHVHEHYH, YHVHELHYM, YHVHEDNY)-add to 250, the value of Ner, candle, but if we add 6 as the kolel, we get 256, which is the value for both H’Aron (Ark of the Covenant) and for Aaron who lit the Menorah as channel for us all.

So when we recite Ner, we want to meditate on the 42 Letter name (the Ana B’koach), receiving mazal, letting  Aaron, the only person in the Torah assigned the title Mashiach, be our channel to light the Menorah in our lives and world.

אבג יתץ

together with the 6 Names merging together as follows.


YHVH – EHYH (Chochma – Ehyeh)

YHVH _ ELHYM (Binah – Elohim)

YHVH – EDNY (Malchut – Adonai)

We draw the light of blessing down from Chochma to Binah to our world, Malchut.

Now for the full understanding, we take the 3 Names Ehyeh, Elohim and Adonai plus the 3 Names Av, Sag, Mah from the L’hadleek kavanot and numerically add them  (172 + 180) + 6 (kolel for the 6 Names) and get 358, Mashiach

So completing the recitation of Baruch though Ner, we want to have in mind drawing down the light from the Upper 42-Letter Name to the Lower 42-Letter Name though the 3 YHVH’s and into the 3 Names (Ehyeh, Elohim and Adonai) and thus igniting the spark of  Mashiach consciousness in all of us.

The Candle

The candle we’re lighting is the light of the Torah itself as evidenced by the spelled out, gematria milui of the letters (nun-resh) of Ner (candle): (NVN RShY) is (106 + 510) = 616, which is the numerical value of H’Torah, which helps explain Proverb 6:23:

“A mitzvah is a candle, and the Torah is light.”

The Shamesh

The Shamesh, or 9th candle is much more than a simple helper candle.The 9th sefira is that of Chochma, Wisdom. and the unification from above that is assocaited with the 9th sefira is YHVH x EHYH or in numerical terms 26 x 21 = 546, which is the sum of the initials of all 10 sefirot, a clue that this unification helps us draw the energy down through all 10 sefirot.

The value 546 is also the total value of the Names of the 3 Patriarchs whose names began with the letter Yud, which connects them to Chochma (wisdom), the 9th sefira: Isaac (208), Jacob(182), and Jospeh(156).  It’s likewise a connection to Israel, which has a value of 546 when the kolel for the 5 letters is included,

This is an important unification because 546 is the numerical value of koteret, (the incense lit at the inner alter of the Holy Temple) as it says in Proverbs 27:9 “Oil and incense rejoice the heart,” and as the Ari explains, “And the inner altar and the Menorah stood together to give joy to all, as is written.”

So as we light the Shamesh we should meditate to draw down the light through the 10 sefirot and to put joy in our hearts.

And not only does the number 9 divided by the small gematria of the 1st line of 42-letter Name = 73.14159, or extremely precisely 70 + Pi (3.14159..), while the numerical value of the 2nd line is 9 x 9 x 9, one of the reasons the line is utilized in the Shofar blowings of 9 beats each.

אבג יתץ

קרע שטן

So while lighting the Shamesh if you can connect to the first two lines of the 42-letter name keep in mind to lift the world of illusion from the 70 nations, elevating spirituality out of the physicality to bring about Moshiach

The 25th of Kislev

Yet another connection between the kavanot and the words of the blessing is found between the 25 letters of the union of the 6 Names and the value of Ner, 250, since 250/10 = 25, but most important these would be the 25 letters that the Zohar says is missing for the completion of the Mishkan and the 25 words that we know are missing from the completion of the Torah, which is exactly 80,00025 words. It’s also a connection between the 25 letters of the Shma Israel phrase and the 25th of Kislev, as explained by the Zohar.

The next obvious further connection is between the 80,000 words and the 8 lights and nights of Chanukah, since the 4th root of the sum of all the words, letters, and verses of the Torah = 25 exactly. There are also 25 letters in lamed-vav (36) milui.

So note that the 25 letters in the verse “Shma Israel, Adonai Elohenu, Adonai Echad” (Hear O Israel, G-d our Lord is One) is found at Devarim 6:4 and the word Chanukah (ChNV-CH) can be broken down to the two numerical values 64 (ChNV) and 25 (CH), and moreover that the numerical value of the first and last words in that verse, Shma (ShMY) and Echad (EChD) plus the kolel (1) = 410 + 13 + 1 = 424, the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David.

Further to this line of reasoning, and as connected by the Zohar, are the 24 days of Kislev that proceed Chanukah and the 24 letters in the Baruch Shem phrase that follows the Shma Israel phrase.

So on the first night before lighting we should connect to the Shma israel and mediate that we are completing the Torah as in the days of Mashiach.

The OiI

The word for eight (8) in Hebrew is shemonah, and a simple permutation of the letters in shemonah (ShMNH) gives us hashemen. “the oil” (HShMN), and also neshama (soul, NShMH), all of which have the numerical value of 395, that of the 5th word in the Torah, H’Shama’im (the Heavens).

And when we spell out the Shin-Mem-nun root letters of the Oil they add up to 546 that of koteret, the incense again, so once again we must keep in mind (Proverbs 27:9): “Oil and incense rejoice the heart,” and be joyful as we light the oil for that joy will spread through the 10 sefirot and be contagious throughout the world.

Proverbs 27:9 “Oil and incense rejoice the heart,”

The Arizal further explains that the oil in the Menorah and by transference our chanukiyas represents the consciousness of chochma and the incense represents Binah, thus together they are the partzufs of Abba and Imma.

The 8 Nights of Lights

The 44 Candles Sweeten the Judgment

On a simple level, over the 8 nights, we’re lighting 44 candles in total including the shamesh every night, these corresponding to the ordinal value of the letters in Chanukah (ChNVCH), which is 44. It also corresponds to first letters of all 10 plagues, which also add up to 44. So you can see the power to create miracles is built into every aspect of these 8 days.

Moreover, the first plague was blood, dam, also of numerical value 44, and as the Arizal explains “the word “m’damei“, whose numerical value (89) equals that of the word “Chanukah“, is rooted in the letters dalet and mem, which spell the Hebrew word for “blood”. Blood represents the negative powers of judgment, our mission it is to sweeten. Via the 44 (the numerical value of dalet, 4, and mem, 40) lights we kindle throughout Chanukah (including the shammas) and the awakening of consciousness they embody, the kelipot become nullified before us.” Thus with every candle we light, we can sweeten the judgment in out lives and in the world.

And note also that 44 is numerical value of the regressive spelling of the higher name of G-d, Ehyeh, connecting us to Chochma and Binah;

(E – EH – EHY – EHYH)

If our actions of lighting the chanukiya each night rekindle the energy from the night before and culminate in completeness on Zot Chanukah then: On the 1st night we light 1 candle and it stays lit metaphysically for (at least) 8 days; and on the second night we light 2 candles that stay lit, we have a total of 3 lit (rekindled) that second night. On the 3rd night we are lighting (rekindling) 1 + 2 + 3 or a total of six; and so on, until we have 1 + 3 + 6 + 10 + 15 + 21 + 28 + 36 = 120, a familiar mathematical progression that seems to be oft used in the deeper meditations and connections of the Torah, and that we first learned about from Abraham in the Sefer Yetzirah, The Book of Formation.

In the same way, the Shamesh would be 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 = 36. Thus 120 + 36 = 156 or 6 X 26 representing the YHVH, and thus 2 X 78 for mazal.

The Arizal explains that the eight days of Chanukah are, or end up, at the level of hod, the same as a brit whose 8 days expire at hod before the brit can be performed at the level of yesod. Well, considering this, it’s noteworthy that if we assume that all our candles/oil last for 8 days, then in total, we are lighting 120 lights (which would correspond to the 120 permutations of Elohim) plus the 36 lights for the 8 Shamesh that we light, totaling 156, the numerical value for Yosef, who represents the level of Yesod. It’s also the value of Zion.

The 8 Nights of Lights

Now know this for every candle we light below, one is lit above. So for the 156 plus 1 collective one we light each Hanukkah, another 157 are lit above, making 314 in total, with 314 being the numerical value of Shadai (ShDY) and of Mettatron. And that if we consider all the cumulative lit Chanukah lights as a multiple of 8 days: 1 x 3 x 6 x 10 x 15 x 21 x 28 x 36 = 1008 then the 1008 plus1 candles we light, above and below total 2018 candles in all each year in preparation for the Messiah in the year 2018 CE (5778 HC), our inheritance.

And Zion, of numerical value 156, is the same as Yosef, who represents Yesod of Malchut, where the light of Binah ends up on the 8th day and the point where all the divine sustenance funnels into out lives and world. Moreover, Zion, of numerical value 156, is found 107 times in Tanakh and the sum of all the positive integers to 107 is 5778.

Chanukah, a Special Light

The letters of Mashiach (MShYCh) spell out Madlikim Shmona Yemei Chanukah (lighting up eight days of Chanukah).

Chanukah Gelt

Even the parve chocolate gelt we give to our children on Chanukah connects to Mashiach, as the Aramaic word for gelt is Dami (DMY) of numerical value 54, and since 5778 is the sum of all the integers from1 to 107 and 5778 = 107 x 54, then 54, and thus Dami (Gelt), plays yet another role in connecting all of us to the coming of H’Mashiach, B’H very soon

The Menorah is a gift to the worthy.

The Ari in writing about Chanukah explains that the Menorah was made miraculously when Moses threw a kikar (measure) of gold into the furnace and prayed to G-d to fashion it. It immediately emerged fully formed. This further connects the Menorah to the sefira of chochma, which is like a gift bestowed upon a person worthy to receive it.

So bring joy to your heart and joy to the world this Chanukah and help bring the gift of Mashiach into our lives.

The 26 Generations from Adam to Moses to Mashiach: Why do we Need Numbers?

Why do we count? Why does the Torah always list numbers, and why are numbers so hard for us to grasp?

The following is an excerpt from The Divine Calendar about the curious mathematics in the 26 generations from Adam to Moses. It is just one more aspect in and of the magnificence of the Torah. To most people reading and studying Torah (the Bible) the years in the generations of Adam are extremely insignificant and that may be the point: Even the most insignificant detail of the Torah shines with the magnificence and depth of the brightest star. I was compelled to make this particular post because I followed an advertising link to a site whose premise was that we can’t count the generations. I confess I didn’t read through their premises in depth, but if the Torah didn’t want us to count up its numbers, why is the Torah always taking censuses and counting everything constantly.  And why are there always deep and numerous revelations when we do.

Why would there be so much revealed perfection in the Torah’s numbers if we weren’t supposed to find it?

The answer is that our generation is meant to find this perfection. What else other than the awe of G-d can save us?

Rav Abraham Azulai in Chesed L’Avraham stated about the end of days, which he advised us would begin in 5760, “After this time, the hidden secrets of the Torah shall be revealed to all Israel, even to those that never tried to study Torah’s secrets beforehand. Though, that they did study Torah in exile, they shall now achieve to know the way of Sod.”

Then why are numbers so hard for so many people?

It is because they are Sod, secret knowledge. People’s eyes glaze over when they see numbers and they get sleepy, which is no different then often happens to people listening to a tzaddik speak. When the energy is too powerful, we can’t connect, so our minds disconnect. But know this, everything in the Torah is a gift, and everything was meant for us to take advantage of it.

OK, secrets, sure, but those can be bottom-lined for us, why do we need to look at the numbers?

Because numbers contain enormous power unto themselves, which is why there are so many of them in the Torah. Think of them as the IP addresses of various cosmic computer stations. Once you once the address your mind/soul can dial in, the same way your web browser does for you while you’re sitting at your desk, unlocking an endless stream of information. Now imagine, if all those web addresses were sorted into a specific order for you to link into just the right and accurate information and to tap into just teh right frequency of energy you need to maximize your potential this and every week of the cosmic year. This is why the Torah is divided into very specific portions (parshot) according to the weeks and holidays of the cosmic calendar year. Now these cosmic web sites are wonderful to visit, but if you could only read them (if they were in your language) how much more would you get out of them. And that’s what were are attempting to do in this blog, help you to read the cosmic web sites, translate them as best we can, because the closer we get to 5778 and the “end of days” the more we’ll need accurate information and the appropriate spiritual energy.

So what energy can we tap into this today?

At the end of this except from The Divine Calendar, one of the more technical sections of it, I’ve added new important revelations about the chronology of these 26 generations and their connection to the prophesied arrival of Moshiach in 5778.

“There are 26 direct generations in the lineage from Adam to Moses, and we know exactly how long each of them lived according to the Torah, which the sages say existed before Creation and the scientists and scholars tell us existed for the past 3330 years or so. Nevertheless, if we list all 26 generations and take the logarithm of each, and then sum up these 26 irrational numbers, we get exactly 66.661199… or 66.66.12, a numerical pictograph of 666 and 612, which is the numerical value of “Covenant, or Brit.

What are the odds of that? Really. If the Torah were divinely designed, then there’s no issue. Of course the same force that created all our mathematics could have designed this specific set of 26 interlocking numbers that ended in the year 2488 HC to be anything that He wanted it to, but if we want to design a scenario where Man could have created this chart 3330 years ago, then we have a problem. You see, John Napier only began developing the concept of logarithms around 400 years ago.

Ironically, or maybe not coincidentally at all, John Napier wrote a book about the mathematics of the Book of Revelations, but what he wasn’t privy to was that there were 600,000 Israelites at Mount Sinai when the Torah was given and when the 27, or 33, Hebrew letters of the Hebrew alphabet are broken down into their component parts they expand to 50 total letters, which makes the number of actual letters in the Torah climb from 304805 to exactly (600,000408.)

Now, there are many reasons why the Torah was designed to be 408 letters shy of the perfect 600,000, one of them being that 408 x 6 = 2448 and 2448 HC was the year the Torah was given to us at Mt Sinai, but what ties this all together so utterly perfectly is that the log of 600,000 is 5.778.

LOG(600,000) = 5.778.

The other oddity to notice about the above generational chart is that the sum of the 26 square roots, again 26 irrational numbers, also works out to 535.814805…, with 358 being the numerical value for Mashiach, the Messiah, and 814 being the numerical value of the phrase from Leviticus 19:18, “You must love your neighbor as (you love) yourself,” and 805 being the numerical value of “The Rainbow” which was G-d’s Covenant with the Earth following the Flood.

Of further note is that not only does the cumulative sum of the 26 square roots connect to Mashiach, but the cumulative sums of the first 17 (the value of tov, good) do so as well. They sum to 424.666, a not so subtle connection to Mashiach Ben David (424) and 666.

Also, you may have observed that the numerical sequence or string 5358 is found at the 9th position in the mathematical constant Pi: 3.14159265358, right after the number 26 representing both the Tetragrammaton and the 26 generations, whose square roots summed to 5358, and that the number 26 immediately follows the number 9.

Now someone might say that there existed in the days of Moses a genius capable of doing square roots and logarithms and that he somehow contrived to create a 26-generation chart where the dates end in 8’s and the logs sum to 66.6612 and square roots sum to 535.814805 and that he knew that out of the 304805 letters in the Torah, there would be exactly 4805 letter Pe’s, each of value 80, and moreover, that he convinced Moses to let him write this section of Genesis, but did he also create Pi, which is really nothing more than a mathematical result of curving a line into a circle and which thus existed at the dawn of creation? Do we really think that this is logical reasoning? That this is plausible?”

So what is really going on here?

Obviously, in building-in such precision perfection, which we can easily unravel given today’s technology, G-d wanted to give everyone in this generation the opportunity to realize in time the blessings of Torah and that there is so much more out there than we can fathom with out limited minds.

But just as importantly, the Torah is letting us know that we all come from the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) and that if your soul is one of the 600,000 that was at Mt Sinai, then it came through and was at one point united within Adam, and that it needs to be reunited again with H’Mashiach (the Messiah) in 5778.

That’s why it’s called a divine calendar; because it was preordained, and the Torah’s wants us to know that, to tune into that so it can help us to unify, to reunite. If the Torah knew the path our 600,000 souls would take then it also knew how difficult the path would be and how much help we’d need in the end days. This is why we were given this 18-year period from 5760 to 5778 (2000 CE to 2018) to live (18 is the value of chai, life) and to learn this technology, of which permission has only recently been granted for it to be made available to everyone.

If you’re reading this, chances are you are one of the 600,000 and need to help get it to the other 599,999. If you were a cell in your body, you wouldn’t think twice about helping and sharing valuable info with the rest of your body–this is what keeps you alive, but as humans, it’s not our nature (or so we deceive ourselves into thinking). Think about that: How can what our cells do naturally not be within our nature. This is the illusion of our present world. This is what Torah is trying to help us break though. This is what is on the other side of the end of days. It is the tree-of-life reality.

What about those new revelations?

We know that the number 8 plays a significant role in the divine calendar, and we also know from chazal that all the Patriarchs were supposed to live as long as their fathers, so it’s probably not a coincidence that 8 of the 26 in the generations from Adam to Moses, both of whom are aspects of Mashiach, lived shorter lives than their fathers did.  They are:

Kenen, the          4th generation

Yered, the           6th generation

Methusalah, the  8th generation

Noach, the         10th generation

Eber, the            14th generation

Terach, the         19th generation

Isaac, the            21st generation

Amran, the         25th generation

We’ve seen repeatedly in our blog posts how the number 107 is encoded into many of the Torah verses and/or Bible codes and we know that since it is a spiritual tenet that nothing is ever lost, we understand the significance that all the integers from 1 to 107 add up to 5778.  Thus, isn’t it significant that the sum of the generations of those 8 forefathers of ours is 107, thueds linking them, us to 5778.  And also that the first 5 are all even numbers that add up to 42, as in the 42-Letter name of G-d, that we learned from the Arizal, is our real soul root (see the blog post regarding this), and also that the last 3 are all odd numbers which add up to 65, the numerical value of Adonai. Now, if you piece it together in reverse order, you can trace it back to 3,5,8 or 358, Mashiach.

With these simple ages, the Torah is helping us to reconnect with our soul roots and to connect to the Mashiach.  Note, all these numbers come from the extraordinarily secret Book of Adam, as the Torah alludes to in Bereshit 5:1, to which only a very few tzaddikim have been privileged to see, but now we can all connect with this knowledge openly.

And since the Torah wants to illustrate the parts are all part of the whole we can see from these numbers that the sum of the integers from 1 to 26 (YHVH) is 351 and that the sum of square roots of the 18 (26-8) numbers not highlighted for us is 351.702, with the number 702 being the value of Shabbat, the 7th day.  And if you add 7 to 351, you get 358, Mashiach again.

One more parting gift: 5778/107 = 54, which is the numerical value of the letters dalet and nun, the two letters of the month of Scorpio, according the Abraham’s Sefer Yetzirah, that are also associated with the arrival of Mashiach, but this will be explained in detail in another post.
