The 3 Columns of History.

The Torah always presents information to us with great built in redundancy, so it’s not the Torah’s fault if we’re slow on the uptake.  For example, did you ever wonder why there were 70 family members who entered Egypt and began the 210 years of exile there while they grew to 600,000? Or why Moses and his siblings had to pass the Torah on to 70 Elders before it could be given to the people, also 600,000 at the time. And you probably didn’t realize that Noah’s sons had 70 named descendants in the Torah, which eventually populated the world.

Ok, so what?

So if the Torah is expressing a distinctive pattern, it’s our  obligation to try and figure out why, what he message is. This is the Sod Torah, the secret chambers of the Torah that house the deepest wisdom.

The pattern:

Noach (1) – his 3 sons – 70 descendants

Adam (1) – 3 Patriarchs – 70 family members

G-s (1) – 3 Moses/Aaron/Miriam – 70 Elders

1 -3 -70




The Tree-of-life comes to mind right away:


Binah –  Da’at – Chochma

Gevurah -Chesed


Hod -Netzach




1 (Keter)

3 Upper Sefirot

70 Subsefirot of 7 sefirot of Zeir Anpin/Malchut

By the way, the 70 sub-sefirot are naturally bundled this way; it wasn’t some convenient arrangement of ours.

Then, of course, there is 137, the numerical gematria value of Kabbalah, meaning both to receive and also parallel, as in parallel meaning and parallel universe.

As my friend Mordechai pointed out, 1-3-70 is also 1370 as in the 1370 that Chazal tells us the Moslems were to rule over the Jews in merit of their forefather Ishmael (10 years for each of the 137 of his life), which incidentally ended on June 8th, 2002, 1370 years after the death of Mohammad in 632 CE.

Then there is 1 x 3 x 70 = 210 years of exile in Egypt.

Of course, Keter is 1, but it’s also 100 and 100 + 70 + 3 = 173, as in the 173 keys that the Zohar tells us G-d gave to Moses to access Heaven, and allusion to the small gematria value of the 42-Letter Name of G-d, 173.

Let’s put that aside for the moment and see where the 3 column structure of the Tree-of-life takes us. The Arizal explains that all history is based on cycles of the coupling of Zeir Anpin and Malchut (in it’s most simplistic form, Heaven and Earth).  These cycles include the 3 times of the day (corresponding to the 3 sets of daily prayers); the 7 days of the weeks; 12 months in a year He further states that in the grand cycle, the destruction of the Second Temple in 3830 HC heralded the end of the coupling of Zeir Anpin and Malchut, which will reoccur in the time of the Third Temple. Interestingly, the Second Temple was destroyed in 70 CE, and the first Temple was destroyed in 3338 HC, or -422 CE, which is germane because 422 is the gematria value of the word seventy (70).

Now, since the 2nd of the 3 periods (columns) of history ended in 3830, if this first 2 periods were split down the middle, each would be 1915 years long.  I haven’t found any biblical events that match the year 1915, but Abraham was born 33 years later in 1948.

And similarly, 3830 + 1915 (or alternatively 1915 x 3 periods) = 5745 (1985 CE), which is 33 years before 5778, the year prophesied by Rav Ashlag, etc. for the geula (final redemption) and the arrival of Moshiach and the 3rd Tree-of-life opportunity.

Nevertheless, we know that the 70 years of King David’s life is tied into the  whole Mashiach calendar and that the midpoint of his life in 2889 HC is exactly halfway between Adam (0) and Moshaich in 5778 HC, and so we should see see how his life compares with the 3 periods of 1915 years. As it happens, half way between the first 1915 year period and the the second at 3830 is the year 2872 and half of 33 years later is 2889, alternatively David was born 33/2 years before 2872 in 2854 HC.

So why the 33 years?

Is it because it’s 1/3 of 100 (keter)? Or because it’s 1 more than the 32 Paths of Wisdom (Tree-of-life).  Or is it something deeper, some link/path/gateway that G-d wants us to find on our own. After all, the square root of 33 is 57.45, as in 3 x 1915 = 5745.

Couldn’t be, right? Square roots factoring into G-d’s Divine calendar?

Well, maybe, considering that the square root of 1370 = 37.01, and the gematria value of the 42-Letter Name is 3701. And speaking of the 42-Letter Name, whose small gematria value if you recall was 173, the square root of 3 is 1.73.

Nevertheless, 33 is 2/3 or .666 of the 50-year biblical jubilee year, which the Torah commands us (starting back in 2448 HC at Mt Sinai) to count, until the arrival of Moshiach 3330 (66.6 jubilee) years later.

Now the Divine Calendar is so designed so that Abraham would be born in 1948 HC, and Israel would become a nation in 1948 CE and that 1948 years after the destruction of the Second Temple in 3830, we’d get the 3rd opportunity for the Tree-of-life reality in 5778, which is 2018 CE, 70 years after Israel became a nation, just as it was 70 years after Abraham was born in 1948, that G-d made his Covenant with Abraham (in 2018 HC).

But if that isn’t enough, it was also so designed so that the square root of the year the First Holy Temple was destroyed, 3338 is 57.78, and moreover that the square root of 5778 is 76.0 and 76.6 jubilee years is 3830, when the Second Holy Temple was destroyed.

So G-d had a plan for us all along, and a time table, a very specific one it seems, down to the square roots, so let’s take another look at the 1-3-70 progression. And it turns out that the sum of their respective square roots is 11.1, as in the numerical value of the 1st Hebrew Letter, Alef (ELP), 111, which leads us back to 1 (One). But as for the progression and the cyclical coupling of Zeir Anpin and Malchut, the Arizal explains that the 600,000 Jewish souls at Mt Sinai can trace their soul root back through the 70 members through the 12 sons through the 3 Patriarchs to Adam, meaning:

600,000/70/12/3 = 238.095


238.095 = 1/42


The atomic weight of


These are just a few of the secrets revealed in just one of the Torah’s many chambers.  But buried beneath this chamber of history is another chamber, with deeper secrets, with clues to the 4th Period of History, he one to come.  We’ll open the seal on that chamber in our next post…


“Song of the Well” from which we Draw the Light

…continued from the “Song of the Sea” at Shmot 15:1-21, paragraph 42, where we discussed the connection of the flowing Light to water, the mikve concept, the name Ehyeh and the 42-Letter Name of G-d, all their conjoined connections to H’Moshiach (the Messiah), and also the importance of joyful singing in appreciation of Hashem.

The next song sung in the Bible is also about water. It is the “Song at the Well” found at Bamidbar 21:17-20, and not coincidentally we find that the first well drank from in the Torah is found at Bereshit 21:17-20, when G-d gives Hagar and young Ishmael relief and offers to make him a mighty nation. This cannot be a coincidence, but the difference was Hagar and Ishmael didn’t give thanks. Yet G-d kept his promise and made him a mighty nation, a nation of unquenchable thirst.

And neither can the fact that the word well, Ber (BER) is found 22 times in the Torah, an indication of the flow of light through the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet, and that all the permutations of Ber, such as in the Torah’s 2nd word, Barah (BRE) add up to 28, the same total number of time2 the word “river” is used in the Torah.

Well and River?

Wells are dug. Rivers flow down from the mountains. The rivers refer to the flow of Light from the upper rivers above, while the wells are the vessels, recipients of this flow, which is why Abraham and the Patriarchs were always digging wells, to prepare our vessels for the Light. This is also why Miriam, a female, was in charge of the well. She was a natural vessel, while Moses was a natural channel, and more like a river in nature.

The first verse of the Torah also has 28 letters, and of the first 9 of those letters, the permuted BER (well) to BER (to create) was included twice, BRESHYT BRE because it takes two drops from below to cause one to flow down from above, which is also why the Moshiach prophecies are based on 666, or 2/3. We have to move 2/3 of the way ourselves and G-d will do the rest.

And that BER (well) and BER (to create) are spiritually related is easily understood if one sees BER (well) as the feminine principal or vessel, which is what creates, gives birth, or manifests. While a river can flow all day long, the water (or Light) must be drawn into a vessel in order to irrigate and nourish and breed life.

Interestingly enough, those 9 letters, including their ordinal value sum to 1215, and as we discussed in our article on the Shakings of the Lulav, all the diverse elements of the Sukkot holiday add up to 100 (Sach) + 91 (sukkah) + 1024 (4 species) = 1215. There is a reason for 1215, but we wont go into it now, but when we take away 1 for the kolel, and get 1214, much of the technology gets revealed. For example, amongst the 28 letters of the Torah’s first verse, there are 11 unique letter and they also have a complete value (ordinal plus standard gematria) of 1214. Also 1214 is the exact numerical value of “70 languages” (ShBAYM LShVNVT), corresponding to the 70 nations and the 70 faces of the Torah. And furthermore, 1214 is the exact value for the “permutation of the letters” (ZYRVP H’EVTYVT), which the Torah seems to be telling us to do, as did Abraham, the Patriarch, in his Sefer Yetzirah (The Book of Formation).

This helps explains the water connection, “Pouring of the Water” (nisuch hamayim), during and to the holiday of Sukkot. And during the time of teh Holy Temple, “Pouring of the Water” was accompanied by signing and dancing and much celebration, just as it should be, considering the first songs of the Torah are about water, and the flow of the Light.

That the exact word well (Beer, BER), found 22 times in the Torah, is obviously connected with the 22 letters of the Hebrew Alphabet, through which Light flows into our world, but a deep secret revealed in The Genesis Prayer is that the Well of Miriam is located at the very center of 42-Letter Name matrix in the Reish-Zaddi (RZ) pair, at letters #21 and 22 of the 42 letters, at the place also known as the Brit of Mashiach, as discussed in previous blogs. Moreover, the numerical value of the RZ pair is 290, the same as Miriam.  Because of the special properties of the mikve, those concerned about fertility and the conception of righteous children, shold read the special section in The Genesis Prayer regarding the 42-letter Name and this special connection within it.  Many people for many generations including ours have received so-called miracles from it, which we know to be just the tree-of-life reality at work.

…to be continued with the rest of the 10 songs. And we will soon be discussing the “Sword of Michael,” which some say is also the “Sword of Moses,” hidden within the “Song of the Sea.”

Goshen: Seeds Planted in the Darkness

The seeds are always planted before the crops, and often it’s not where they are planted it’s by whom.

In parsha Vayigash, 46:28 it says [Jacob] sent Judah ahead of him to make preparations in Goshen (Goshnah).” Goshen (Goshnah) has the same 4 letters as the Chanukah dreidle, and likewise they add up to 358, the numerical value of Moshiach. This is the area within Egypt and the Exile that Joseph arranged for his family and the Israelites to live. The name Goshen (גֹּשְׁנָה Goshnah) is only found twice in the Torah and hints at the two Mashiachs, Mashiach Ben Yosef and Mashiach Ben David, connected to Joseph and Judah respectively. By Joseph reuniting with Jacob, the spirit of Mashiach was restored, and the flow of mazal through Joseph could go to the Israelites, instead of the Egyptians who had been the previous beneficiaries.

The Torah is also telling us that the spirit of Mashiach can be anywhere, even in the darkness of Egypt if we stay connected to the source of the Light, which is a message we need to hear now, more than ever. But with Goshen(גֹּשְׁנָה GShNH), the Torah is also spelling out the travels of the Mishkan (the Tabernacle), whose final home was prepared by King David in the Holy Temple in Jerusalem: G for Givon; Sh for Shilo; and N for Nov.

And the name Goshen (גֹּשְׁנָה Goshnah) really tanslates to “toward Goshen” as the Torah is pointing us toward Mashiach. And the dreidle only spells out numerically Mashiach (גֹּשְׁנָה) outside of Israel. Inside Israel the letter Pe, for Po, here, is substituted for the Shin, just as Goshen is also outside Israel, in the land of exile.

King David was born 406 years after the Exodus from Egypt, corresponding to the spelled-out value of the Hebrew letter Tav (406) and since the Egyptian exile lasted 210 years, he was born 406 + 210 = 616 years after Jacob and his family first entered Egypt, with 616 corresponding to the numerical value of H’Torah, “The Torah.” If we separate the simple letter Tav (400) from H’Torah (התורה HTVRH), we’re left with a numerical value of 616-400 = 216, that of Gevura, the sefira (dimension) of judgment.

But 216 is also the number of letters in the 72 Names (Triplets) that were used in conjunction with the Shem Mem-Bet (the 42-Letter Name) to facilitate the splitting of the Red Sea (Sea of Reeds), which in effect ended the exile in Egypt. Indeed, the 72 Triplets are derived from the 3 consecutive verses of 72 letters each that describe the actual splitting, the only incidence of 3 consecutive 72 letter verses in the Torah. And just in case we were to think that the triple 72 was just a coincidence, we find that the sum of the 216 square roots of the 216 (72+72+72) letters is 720.0, and that’s a phenomenon that just doesn’t happen coincidentally.

But nothing happens without the seeds being planted first, and in parsha vayechi, where Jacob blesses his and Joseph’s children and thus the 12 tribes of Israel, and where in the last two verses of the Book of Bereshit, Joseph promises the Israelites that G-d will take them out of Egypt, we find that the numerical value of the portion’s first two words (וַיְחִי יַעֲקֹב vayechi Jacob) is 216.

Moreover, as Joseph was making that promise to his brothers and family, he gave them the clue to there salvation when he told them to take his bones out of Egypt with them, for as we know from chazal, it was only with the aid and protection of Joseph’s bones (essence) being with them, that the Egyptians couldn’t hurt them and the waters split.

This is important for us to understand, because all too often we try to do things on our own and we fail. The Zohar explains that the hardest thing for G-d to do is change someone’s mazal, and that mazal determines our sustenance, our children, and the length of our years. In other words, to each his lot, regardless of how pious, or many meditations, prayers, or sacred connections they make, or even how hard they work. If it’s so difficult for G-d, how much more so for us.

And the Israelites mazal depended on Joseph, who not only had an abundance of it but was a channel for sharing it as well. Indeed, it was Joseph’s bones that Pharaoh didn’t want to let go of, not so much the Israelites. What was about to happen, the revelation of the Torah at Sinai was so significant, that it took even more than the temporary unification of the Israelites, the 72 Triplets, the 42-Letter Name (Ana B’koach), Moses, and the will of G-d on earth. It took Joseph’s mazal in order to succeed.

Yes, G-d could have done it alone, but there are limits to what he wants to do for us, when we have it in our power to do for ourselves. How will our children learn to walk if we carry them everywhere we go? Indeed, when the Israelites stood before the sea, asking for a miracle in Shmot 14:15, G-d replied, מַה-תִּצְעַק אֵלָי Mah Tizak Elai, “Why are you crying out to me?” We had to do it ourselves. We had to overcome the illusions and tap into the Tree-of-life reality ourselves. The first letters in Mah Tizak Elai spell אמת Emet, truth; we had to see the truth for ourselves.

And so it is today. So let’s understand the Truth.

Within the word Goshen is a deeper secret, but to grasp it fully we need to understand that the reason the land of Goshen was reserved for Jacob was that Pharaoh had previously given it to Sarah.

Did you ever wonder about the strange incident when Abraham and Sarah went down to Egypt for food and he had Sarah pretend to be his sister when Pharaoh fell in love with her and wanted to take her, but G0d intervened. Well, one of the reasons was so Pharaoh could make a gift of Goshen to her while wooing her. As in our lives, nothing happens in the Torah without a reason.

As revealed in previous blogs, Sarah was directly connected with the Moshiach, and was the first to seed the garden of Moshiach, of Goshen. Abraham and Sarah were trying to make the exiles easier for all of us, and they did. And don’t forget it was Sarah, reincarnated as Queen Ester (according to the Arizal) who saved the Jews during the Babylonian exile.

That said, we can now explain that hidden in the word Goshen (GShNH), which we can interpret as Toward Moshiach is the word Shanah (ShNH) , meaning year (or time period), preceded by the letter gimmel (G) for 3, which hints a 3 time periods and the 3 Shanah (Shanah Shanah Shan’im)that we discussed etensively in the mysterious verse Bereshit 23:1, Sarah’s verse that referred to the time of Mashiach. As further hinted at in the 4 letters of Goshen (GShNH), and of Moshiach (MShYCh) and of the YHVH, there are 4 specific exiles cited by chazal, but they cover only 3 time frames, since the Greek Exile existed while the Second Temple stood.

The first Exile began 70 years after Abraham’s birth in 1948 HC, and lasted 430 years from the Covenant of Abraham in 2018 HC to the Exodus from Egypt and the reception of the Torah at Sinai in 2448. This first exile included the more well known 210 years of the Exile in Egypt. The second exile, the exile in Babylonia, began after the destruction of the First Temple in 3338 HC, and lasted 70 years, when Ezra brought the Israelites back to Jerusalem and began constructed the Second Temple. The 4th Exile, the Roman exile, is the current one and it began in 70 CE, when the Romans destroyed the Second Temple. And it is supposed to last 1948 years until 2018 CE and indeed the start of the final 70 year period began with the statehood of Israel in 1948 CE.

The beautiful divine symmetry here is well documented in The Divine Calendar, but what still needs to be pointed out is that the sum of the 3 separate time period exiles is 430 + 70 + 1948 = 2448, as in the 2448 years from Adam to the reception of the Torah at Sinai.

But it gets better, because not only is the 3rd exile, the Greek exile, hinted at in the 3 shanah of Sarah, whose collective ordinal value is 138 as in the year 138 BCE, when that exile ended, but since it began in 318 BCE ( a not so subtle link to Abraham’s 318 men who defeated armies, or the small gematria value of Mashiach 5318), it lasted 180 years, as in the 180 years of Isaac, Abraham and Sarah’s son.

If we add the additional 180 years to the 2448 years of the other 3 exiles, we get a total 2628 years for the 4 exiles, and as explained in The Genesis Prayer, 2628 is not only the sum of all the recurrences of the Torah’s 4th and 2nd words, (ET and BRE), but is also the sum of the positive integers through 72, two not so subtle links to the 42 Letter Name and the 72 Names, tools, if used properly to help us through the exiles, and especially to end them.

Once again, we must wake up to realize that everything in life and in the Torah has a purpose. Right after G-d created heaven and Earth in the Torah’s first verse, he alluded to the 4 exiles in the Torah second verse. Genesis 1:2: The Earth was without Form, and Empty, with darkness on the face of the depths.” It was then followed by “but G-d’s spirit moved on the water’s surface. God said, Let there be Light…”

We know from chazal that the 42-Letter Name, the understanding through which the Mashiach will come, corresponds to the Torah’s first 42 letters and thus bridges the divine creation and the exiles: 1) without Form-Egypt; 2) and empty-Babylonia; 3) darkness-Greek; 4) the depths-Rome. While, the Torah hints that the Light will come after each exile, it also hints that we are currently in the depths, which has a numerical value of 451, the same as Ishmael. Now we know from the Zohar that the current exile is that of Rome, which is also Edom, the exile amongst the Christian nations, we see that it was also ordained to be at the hands of the Ishmaelites, the Moslem nations.

While Abraham saw the prophecies fulfilled that both his sons would be great nations, Sarah knew how difficult it would be for her children and convinced Abraham to send Ishmael into the desert. But G-d has his plans and the exiles occurred as scheduled, with the 430 years of the full Egyptian exile corresponding to the exact numerical value of “without form and empty (THV V’BHV).” So Sarah prepared the ground for us, and continued to nurture us along the way.

But there comes a time when the plants have to fend for themselves, when the children grow up and make their own decisions. It’s wonderful to have parents like Abraham and Sarah, but now we have to fight our own battles. G-d and the Torah have given us all the tools we need. If we choose not to use them; if we choose not to take responsibility for getting ourselves and our brethren out of the exile, G-d’s time frames will play out anyway. pretending we don’t see the steep slopes of of the abyss we’re at the bottom of wont make them any easier to climb.

Yes, climb we must. This exile had 1948 years of descent; that’s a long way back up for us to make in only 9 short years, which is why down here on the floor of the abyss things are getting so bleak. Because G-d knows that it’s only out of true desperation that Man will climb up and try to save himself. Just look to the prior exiles and you’ll see: Pharaoh kept upping the ante on brick-making for the Jews to decide they’d had enough; the Babylonians were an edict and day away of killing all the Jews before the Jews found unity; and the Greeks had to desecrate the Holy Temple with idols nearly wiped out all the Jewish ways before they revolted. But once they did make up their minds to fight there way out, G-d sent them the leaders and the means.

This exile gave us endless oppression and tragedy and moreover endless distractions. It gave us the Holocaust, where 6 million Jews gave there lives, and from that depth new leaders and Israel arose in 1948 CE, our ladder out of the abyss. But the climb for the last and final 70 years has proven treacherous at best and the path fraught with danger and illusory distractions that keep causing us to lose our footing.

G-d is by our side and routing for us, but He will not do it for us. Had that been his plan there would have been no need for exiles in the first place. For guidance, we must look to the tools He has given us, see what saved the Israelites in the past exiles. Our ancestors went through so that we would be saved. Let’s learn from them. And the first lesson is unity and loving-kindness for one another.

And the second lesson is that there are no easy roads out. Beware if someone offers you false hope of light at end of the darkness without hard work; that’s not the path of the Light. The path of the true Light is the path of the righteous and it’s the hardest path. But for those that want to see Moshiach, experience the geula (final redemption) reach the Tree-of-life reality, it’s the only path.

Let’s turn the seeds of Goshen (גֹּשְׁנָה GShNH) into Gan Hashem גן השם and finish what Abraham and Sarah started.

What was in the Beginning?

“In the beginning…”

What was there in the beginning?

The world was without form and empty, so what was there?

There were four things within this emptiness: The spirit of G-d hovering on the waters; the 42-Letter Name of G-d, the 22 letters (building blocks) and a timetable (time frame) for them all to work in.

These four aspects of G-d combined in instant precision to form the Torah and all our physical and metaphysical existence, heaven and earth. But what were these four aspects?

The Spirit of G-d on the waters is a metaphor. Obviously, waters didn’t exist before existence, but imaginary concepts did, things like the mathematical and physical constants like Pi and Phi, which turn two dimensional objects into three dimensional ones by curving space, and which fashion growth into manageable spiraling patters so they don’t spiral out of control. To us, these are numbers, but before they were assigned an endless stream of numbers for each minor iteration of physical action that they controlled, the constants were formless concepts, ideas in the imagination of G-d, ideas that when laid out simultaneously formed a sea of potential that when finally combined with the right concepts of energy bundles formed the universe nearly instantaneously.

The 22 Letters, as briefly explained by Abraham in the Book of Formation, the Sefer Yetzirah, are the 22 building blocks, subdivided into 3 sets: the 3 Mothers (E,M,SH,); the 7 doubles (B,G,D,C,P,R.T); and the 12 elementals (H,V,Tz,Ch,Tt,Y,L,N,S,A,Z,K). These building blocks of distinct energy bundles–hence their distinct numerical values–combined and recombined to form physicality, and every which way they are combined takes on a life and meaning of its own. Think of it as being reflected in humans: You have your own personal energy and attributes; then combined with your wife’s, you form a pair with different attributes and new potential; then you become a family and that potential grows and gathers new attributes, even changing your own original personal ones; then you join different communities and social groups and you then impact on society in different ways, which then shades the understanding and interpretation of your attributes. If you look inward to the eusocial community that are the cells of your body you’ll see the same set up. Look to the atoms, or the cosmos and it is still the same.

Shortly, we’ll publish an article to the site on the exact structure of these building blocks and what Abraham meant when he assigned specific ones to the planets and constellations and told us that they controlled our destiny, because they do not combine randomly and G-d did not leave everything to chance. They are set in specific rings which rotate in sequence. The 12 rings of the 7 doubles for instance need 6 full rotations to complete their cycle, making a total of 42 clicks to complete their cycle. The Mothers and Elementals each need 22 clicks to complete there cycles, and if we add these 86 clicks, with all the cyclical ordinal values of all the letters (as will be explained in said article) they add up to exactly 5778. So far, what we’ve been seeing are the hands on G-d’s clock, and sometimes just the cuckoo popping out of the clock, what we’re now privy to is the mechanism within the clock–the gears and ratchets. To most, who just want to get through life, concentrating on the obstacles thrown at them one at a time, they don’t need that privilege. For those who think there must be more to life and want to understand, there is now a means.

it is a tenet of spirituality that nothing is ever lost, once it goes from potential state to physical it exists forever, which is why so many of the Torah mathematics include the sum of all the integers through a specific number–none of the previous integers that got you to that point had been lost.  That said, the sum of the integers through 22, in other words the real numerical value of 22, is 253 and 2 x 253 = 506, the value of the Hebrew word for “Unconditional love.”  It is also the value of the first line of the 42-Letter Name, and is also the value found 3 times sequentially within the last 7 letters of that same Name.

Moreover, 253 x 22 + 212 = 5778 and 212 is the numerical value of H’Or, “The Light”

The 42-Letter Name is a multi-dimensional matrix, a scaffolding that the letters adhered to in a specific sequence, some visible to us, some not. It’s small gematria numerical value is 173, and it is the 173 keys that were given to Moses that opened the various gates of heaven to him. When the matrix is completely unfolded it is the Torah.  It comes to us simply as the Ana B’koach, and not so simply, as you can imagine such a potent tool as the entire Torah folded up into 42 visible letters would be, it can help us receive all the miracles in life we need by bending reality for us, folding up time and space, exactly as it did for Jacob and his sons. If you haven’t experiences this for yourself, or haven’t experienced it enough, you should start by reading The Genesis Prayer. After that, many deeper secrets will be revealed to you throughout this blog and many more gateways will be available to you. Indeed, the more you understand the 42-Letter Name, the more gets revealed to you anyway. I’m not saying that it is a substitute, but it’s like studying Torah on a deep level and studying a multitude of portions at once.

Until recently G-d’s timetable (or time frame) has been known to only a very select few. Now, as you can read for yourselves in The Divine Calendar and There’s Nothing random about the Universe, it’s available for all to see. So 13.7 billion years were folded into 6 days of creation, get over it; it doesn’t mean anything. That it is 13.7 speaks for itself, as this is the numerical value (137) of kabbalah, meaning to receive. The time frame is 5778 years from the Biblical Birth of Adam to the arrival of Mashiach (the Messiah) and the end of days. It has been written into the Torah, into all our mathematical and physical constants, into the 22 building blocks, and since the complete sofit numerical value (nominal and ordinal together) of the 42 letters in the 42 Letter name of G-d add up to 5778, it’s been written into the Shem Mem-Bet (Ana B’koach) as well.

Even multiply 42 x 137 and add 22. or more specifically 42.173 x 137, and what do you get?:5777.7 or 5778.

So why make all this available to us now?

Because G-d has a plan. He always did. And He wants us to know that. It’s always darkest before the light. Darkness always precedes the Light, like Bohu (chaos) before the Light in Genesis, Nachor and Haran before Abraham, Ishmael before Isaac, Esau before Jacob, all brothers, but all must absorb the darkness and be separated out like the chaff from the wheat, and incidentally (B,N,H,Y,A), the 5 Hebrew initials of their names sum to 137, while the Initials of the 4 Names Light, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (E,E,Y,Y) add up to 22. Do you recall the odd story from pasha Lech Lecha of 5 kings verses 4 kings and the 4 Kings winning? It’s all planned.

Besides being a precursor of our tribulations in present day Iraq (and the tar pits in the valley of Siddon/Saddam), this battle was a metaphor for the victory of the Light then and also in the end of days. And it’s not coincidental either that 137 + 22 = 159, the small gematria value of the 42 Letters of the Name of G-d (the upper Mem-Bet).

Oh, and if you don’t think this had anything to do with our present tribulations of our Kings getting stuck in the tar pits, please review Bereshit 14:2 and the names of the 5 Kings, Bera, Birsha, Shinab, Shemeber and the King of Bela: (BRA, BRShA, ShNEB, ShMEBR, and BLA). What do they all have in common?

The letters in common to all 5 names are Bet and Shin as in Bush. Is it any wonder that both Presidents Bush were compelled by fate to enter the battle against evil. The other common letters BRA, BRShA, ShNEB, ShMEBR, and BLA) are Resh (R) and Ayin (A) or RA, evil. It could also be Ayin-Resh (AR), meaning enemy or even vigilant. The remaining letters spell El, Amen.

It’s all been written: 22 letters, blown by the spirit of G-d and lining up on the scaffolding of the 42-Letter Name and the Torah to spell out the details of the time-line.

And as per our post titled Halfway Point it’s the 5 final letters, assocaited with judgment that will pave the way to the final redemption in 5778, which is yet another connection to the epic Biblical battle detailed above. But speaking of letters, in our next post we’ll show the symmetry and perfection in the spelled-out forms of their names and their obvious connection to 42, Mashich Ben David (424) and the year 5778.
