## Creation by Design; Renewed Every year.

As we complete the 22 days of the holidays and reestablish the relationship between the Zeir Anpin and Malchut (Heaven and Earth so to speak) for another year, we read once again the story of Creation. Before even finishing the holiday, just after we finish the 7th hakifot (encircling) with the lulov and doing the 7 hakifot with the Torah, both associated with Zeir Anpin, we read the first 32 verses of Creation, the verses that establish the 7 days of Creation.  This is of design, not convenience.

The 32 verses of Creation, as well established by Chazal, connect to the 32 Paths of Wisdom, the Tree-of-Life. And as we explained in a previous post, similarly the ordinal value of the word Lulov, which is 32, does as well, and moreover, they both connect to the Alter at the center of the Third Temple, which measures 32 x 32 cubits.

What was not previously explained was that the 6 verses in which each of the first 6 days were completed in, thus establishing the 6 sefirot (dimensions) of Zeir Anpin, are the verses #5, 8, 13, 19, 23, and 31 of the Torah’s first chapter. The numbers 5 + 8 +13 + 19+ 23 + 31 = 99 and in the 1st verse of the 2nd chapter G-d completed Creating Heavean and Earth, plus 99 + 1 = 100, a level of perfection kabbalistically speaking, but also the square of 10 (sefirot) and the complete value of the word Lulov, (68 + 32 = 100), and also the measure of the inner courtyard surrounding the Alter at the center of the Future Holy Temple, 100 x 100 cubits.

This also corresponds to the sum of the ordinal values of the first 10 letters of the Torah (BREShYT BRE E) “In the beginning was created Alef:” 2+20+1+21+10+22+2+2+1+1 = 100, once again perfection and the square of the 10 sefirot.  And it should be noted that teh composite value of the letter Alef is 32, which is why it’s associated with the Tree-of-life.

As we said, when we complete the 7th day, Malchut, firmly establishing the 7 sefirot and 7 days of Creation in the 1st verse of the 2nd chapter, we have a total value of the verses as 100 which corresponds to the 100 blowings of the shofar on Rosh Hashannah that began the Holiday process 22 days ago.

This is all by design to reestablish our connection to the Tree-of-Life EVERY year, every year through the period of the Third Temple, which according to the prophecy of the tzaddikim should happen in about 7 years from now (around 5778).

Please note that 5778 is 66.6 jubilee years from the reception of the Torah at Sinai in 2448, and we mention this because as was explained in book The Genesis Prayer the number 5913 is also derived from a beautiful equation based on the 7 days of Creation and the kabbalistic principal that energy is never lost.

Before we get into the equation please note that in the 6 days of Creation there are 66 times the letter combination for the word “sea” appears (YM) of numerical value 50, the same as the length of the jubilee year, 50 years.  According to chazal, whenever we see the combination (YM) as in Elohim (ELHYM) it represents the sefira of Binah (understanding).

And as for Elohim (ELHYM) it is found 32 times in those same verses of the 6 Days of Creation. Whether it’s the lulov, or the Torah or the Alter in the Future Holy Temple, we’re tapping into the Tree-of-Life , and drawing the light (energy) from Binah through the 6 dimensions of Zeir Anpin into the 7th, Malchut, the world of matter and limitation.

Abraham, the Patriarch, taught us in his Sefer Yetzirah several thousand years ago that 7 factorial is 7 x 6 x 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 = 5040, and when we apply that to 6 factorial and again for each of the 7 days of Creation and then add them together, we get (5040 + 720 + 120 + 24 + 6+ 2 + 1) = 5913 and even more significant, we know that the 10 Commandments and thus the 2nd opportunity of the Tree-of-Life reality was received on Shavuot 2448, or the exact Western date 5/9/1313 BCE (some say 5/9/1312 BCE, but it’s still 5/9/13).

Of further note is that 7 factorial and 6 factorial together total 5760 and (5 and 4 factorial) = 144 and (5 and 4 and 3 and 1 factorial = 151.  So, while 5760 is the year 2000 CE, the spiritual cleaning bath, or mikve has the numerical value of 151 (same as the higher name of G-d, Ehyeh) and it contains 40 seah each of 144 eggs, for a total volume of 5760 eggs, as prescribed by chazal.  It was based on this calculation for the mikve and divine inspiration that Rav Abraham Azulai of blessed memory, prophesied that the  Geula/Moshiach  process would begin in 5760 (2000 CE) and this period of Oy and Ashray could conceivably last for the 18 years until 5778 as fits the other prophecies, especially since the square root of 18 is 4.24, the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David.

Everything is by design.

## The Energy at the Dawn of Creation.

The Arizal explains that the Zohar tells us that the Torah existed for 2000 years before Creation, and that it existed in a form in which all the 79,976 letters would appear to be jumbled to us today.  In other words, what is written in the Torah and was frozen in time once the letter were rearranged to form the narrative we know today, was formerly written in a potential state, whereby the events of our Biblical past could have played out differently.  Adam didn’t have to sin.

Nevertheless, he did, and we have to struggled and fight our way back to the Tree-of-Life reality that existed prior to that initial sin.  As part of that process (the easy part) we study the secret coding of the Torah (Sod Torah), which R’ Abulafia of blessed memory calls the deepest level of Torah understanding (that we’re capable of at any rate).

But what are we really doing when we examine the gematria and the permutations of the letters and words of the Torah?

Yes, we are revealing the underlying technology that the Torah was designed with, and occasionally by doing so, yes, we are revealing hidden blessings, prayers, and specific gateways. And yes, with each revelation into the magnificence of the Torah we bring more awe of the Torah and G-d into our lives and the world and thus bring ourselves and others closer to G-d ( a thoroughly worthy cause unto itself).

But what are we really doing when we rearrange the letters according to ancients codes that seem to exist before time? At times, it feels like all the letters of the Torah are on stone wheels, each with all 22 (or 27) letters embossed on the–79,976 wheels in all.  At other times, it’s as if the Torah was an enormous multi-dimensional matrix, with gateways and portals  appearing at the intricate junctions and apexes, each leading us to other portals.

But what are we really doing?

When we reveal and understand the codes that permute the letters, we are in essence re-scrambling the letters to the primordial state they were in before creation, to the state of potentiality. We are connecting ourselves to energy of purity that existed before the sin of Adam, to the energy of the Tree-of-Life. We are connection ourselves to the energy that knew no limitations, the energy that houses all possibilities.

What is this like?

It’s like converting the aging cells of our bodies back to pure undifferentiated stem cells that still have to potential to be anything our bodies need, that are young, disease free, and full of youthful health.

This is what we are really connecting to.  What we do with that energy is up to us.

As for the state of the Torah before Creation, we know, for sure, of the formal order of at least 42  of the 79,976 letters, the first 42.  Prior to Creation the first 42 Letters of the Torah were the 42 letters of the Shem MB, the 42-Letter Name of G-d, which is known as the Ana B’koach. This is why when we do the Ana B’koach (See the book The Genesis Prayer), we often see miracles; we are connecting to that primordial energy of pure potential, which means our reality can shift instantaneously.  This is the power of the Tree-of-life.

When we were given the Torah everything was already set (fixed), and both time and a time-frame indelibly established, events had already played out and future events had already been determined. But…

But we were also given, a gateway out (beyond). Adam left Gan Eden with the Ana B’koach, the 42 letters that tap into  the energy he was forced to leave behind. That 42-letter matrix is still here with us today, and still access all that beautiful potential energy. It is our key back in.  As the Zohar puts it, it is the 173 keys to Heaven given to Moses (the small gematria of the 42 letters totals 173).

This is why we study the codes.  It’s all about the Tree-of-Life.

## Judgment Day; The Final Redemption Approaches

This weeks Haftorah portion tells us Judgment day is coming and When! I was preparing an article this week about the 4 times H’Mashiach is explicated mentioned in the Torah, but the Pesach cleaning took precedence: nevertheless, this and every Shabbat Hagadol–the Shabbat of Redemption—just before Pesach we read the Haftorah portion Malachi 3:4-24 about the ”End of Days.”

The final verse in that reading is “Behold, I will send you Elijah the Prophet before the coming of the great and terrible day of God.”

And that verse is actually repeated twice, word for word, first in chapter 23 and again in chapter 25: “Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and terrible day of God.”

The final 5 words of those verses, “boy yom YHVH hagadol v’hanorah (BE YVM YHVH HGDVL VHNVR,”E) meaning “the coming of the great and terrible day of God,” numerically add up to 407, whose square root, as we’ve explained recently and repeatedly in context, is 20.17424, which can be split up into the year 2017 and 424, the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David.  But what makes this connection doubly emphatic is that the final 6 words (“before the coming of the great and terrible day of God,” add up to 577 as in 5777-5778 or 2017-2018 CE which the tzaddikim have given us as that self same day for the Geula, the Final Redemption.”

And the square root of the sum of the entire verse (1661) is 40.7…once again.

So why is the verse repeated twice?

There are multiple reasons for one of the most ominous and significant verses in the Tanakh (Bible) to be repeated twice, like the hitting of the stone by Moses twice and the two sets of Tablets that Moses brought down, but today we will explore only the gematria, the encoded secret one. There are 49 letters in each of the verses, which connect to the 49 days of redemption, the 49-day Omer period from Passover to reception of the 10 Commandments (Utterances) on Shavuot, the 50th day. And the 50th or hidden letter of this verse, would be the final letter vav (V) in Eliyahu (ELYHV), Elijah in English, who we know from the Arizal was originally Pinchas, whose zealousness stopped the plagues and saved the Israelite.  According to some, that vav (V)–written in Hebrew as a vertical line–is the spear of Pinchas, which according to the Zohar is the broken vav(V) in the word Shalom (peace) in the Torah portion Pinchas, where is describes his zealousness.  We find that broken vav(V) in the phrase “Covenant of Peace.”

Moreover, this broken Vav (V) of numerical value 6, is reminiscent of the 408 missing component letters from the total 600,000 component letters (exactly 599,592) of the Torah, which, if they were represented by the letter vav(V) would equal numerically a total value of 408 x 6, or 2448, which in turn is 49 jubilee years (Biblical 50-year interval) after the Birth of Adam, and is precisely the year the Torah was received at Sinai, 2448 HC.

Now back to the two verses that seem to herald judgment day, the prophesied day of the final redemption (the geula). The total gematria for the 26 (YHVH) words in the 2 verses with the kolel for the YHVH (4) added for each—representing together (4 +4) the 8 days/years of the Brit of Mashiach as described by the tzaddikim, is 3330.  This, as noted many times in previously articles concerning other verses and Torah portions, is exactly 66.6 jubilee years (50-year interval) from the exodus from Egypt and reception of the Torah (Tree-of-life consciousness) in 2448, or precisely 3330 years before 5778 (2018 CE), 8 years from today.

## The Mystery of the Double Words

Before we examine the ancient monument that has stood proud for thousands of years secretly hiding the value of the ancient and future cubit in plain sight and see what else it reveals about our history and future, lets go back to the nature of the cubit itself: the splitting in halves of the double 55 to give us 27.5 inches.

Let’s look first to the Torah and last week’s portion. And as we do, we’ll reveal a secret encoding for the blessing of conception and childbirth, which in essence is the union of the two halves. For those that understand, the two halves are always the letters Vav and Hei of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH)

The Torah portion Vayera begins the 49th paragraph and 18th chapter of the Torah. It begins with the words Vayera Elav Adonai (VYRE ELYV YHVH), “God appeared to him,” of numerical value 290.

And note for the moment that that this first chapter of parsha Vayera ends at Bereshit 18:33, which matches up nicely with the gematria value (1833) of the first half of the Shem Mem-Bet (42-Letter Name of G-d), whose mid- point is marked with the letters Resh-Zadi (RZ) of numerical value 290. Readers of The Genesis Prayer already know this RZ gateway, or connection, at the very center of the 42-Letter Name matrix and its relationship between this gateway the Well of Miriam (also of numerical value 290) and the blessing of conception and childbirth, but in this article we’re going to focus primarily on the secret encoding of the Torah as it applies to this miracle/blessing.

Please note because it is not coincidence that there are 290 letters in the 4th paragraph of the Schema, the 1st of which has 42 words.

Nevertheless, before we do, let’s take a step back to the prior weeks’ portion Lech Lecha (LC LC, of numerical value 50-50) the only portion named after one of the Torah’s mysterious 89 double (duplicate) words. In this portion, we find in the 45th paragraph of the Torah the Covenant of G-d with Abraham, the one that promises that his descendants will be as numerous as the stars, also know as the Covenant of Halves. The readers of know full well that this event occurred, according to the sages of blessed memory in 2018 HC (see The Divine Calendar).

Let’s flash forward to Vayera, 20:18, the last verse in paragraph 50 of the Torah, which states, “God had previously sealed up every womb in Abimelech’s house, because of Abraham’s wife Sarah.”

Now it just so happens that this verse also contains a double word, Azir Azar (AZR AZR), the 17th double in the Torah, which is akin to the sum of the values of the initials of this portions first 3 words, (VYRE ELYV YHVH), 17. Morever, each of these double words contains the same Resh-Zadi (RZ) combination as in the center of the 42 Letter Name.

We’ll get more into these mysterious doubles, but first the Torah is giving us some very practical spiritual advice if we want to conceive, even if like Sarah Amenu, we are 89 years old and born without a womb. In the verse just prior to this one, in 20:17, “Abraham prayed to God, and God healed Abimelech, as well as his wife and slave girls, so that they were able to have children.” In the very next verse, the first in chapter 21, Sarah is granted special providence by G-d to give birth to Isaac and begin to fulfill his Covenant with Abraham.

The practical and simple advice is to pray for others to conceive if your desire is for yourself or your wife to.

Now, it’s no coincidence that Isaac is conceived and born in the first 2 verses of chapter 21, just as the RZ combination in the Shem Mem-Bet is located at the 21st letter of the Name, the midpoint of the 42 letters.

Keeping in mind that the ordinal value of the letter Resh is 20 and Zadi is 18, the last 3 words of verse 20:18, are Sarah, wife of Abraham, (SRH EShT EBRHM) and with the kolel their numerical value sofit can be either 2017 or 2018.

Moreover, the next set of double words in the Torah is also in parsha Vayera, and they are “Abraham Abraham,” and not only are these the 18th pair of duplicate words, but the numerical value of Abraham is 248, the same as the Hebrew word for womb, rechem.

We further note that these verses, all related to the RZ combination and to childbirth, are in the 4th reading of the Vayera Torah portion, just as the RZ is in the center of the 4th line of the Ana B’koach (42-Letter Name), the level of Netzach, which is associated with the energy of victory and perseverance.

We’ll get more into the miracles embedded into these 89 mysterious double words as we get closer to Chanukah, not coincidentally also of numerical value 89, but for now, please note that the midpoint of these 89 words is the 45th one, Darosh Darash, connecting us back to where we began in the 45th Paragraph of the Torah and the Covenant of Abraham in 2018. Now Darosh Darash has the numerical value 504 – 504 and this location also splits the number of occurrences of the word value 504 into 25 and 25 per half, and while Darosh Darash is the 45th overall double, it is the 32nd unique one and the 32nd overall one just so happens to be CH CH of numerical value 25-25, representing not only the last two letters of Channukah (ChNVCH), but the date that the miracles of Channukah begin every year, the 25th of Kislev.

Now, getting back to the occurrence of this hidden blessing for childbirth in 20:18 of paragraph 50 of the Torah, we know that 50 always represents the sefira (dimension) Binah and always connects to the 50 jubilee years prescribed in the counting toward Moshiach and the geula (final redemption), and that 49 chapters after the Covenant of Halves in chapter 15 of Bereshit we have the end of exile and exodus from Egypt.

As part of that Covenant given in the year 2018 HC, G-d informs Abraham that his descendents will be in exile for 430 years and 2018 plus 430 years is 2448 HC, the year of the exodus, which just so happens to be 49 jubilee years (49 x 50) from Adam.

And of the 89 double word pairs in the Torah, 49 are unique after discounting for repeats, leaving (89 – 49) = 40 repeated double word pairs, as in the 40 jubilee years from Adam to the Covenant with Abraham in 2018 HC.

Then again there is the strange tale of Lot’s daughter getting impregnate by their father at the very end of paragraph 49. The descendant of that union many generation later would be King David, born 57.08 jubilee years after Adam., once again tying in the concept of childbirth and Mashiach.

Of course, with the symmetry of the two calendars as illustrated in The Divine Calendar, Abraham’s birth in 1948 HC is analogous to Israel’s birth in 1948 CE, which is 5708 HC; and 2018 HC seventy (70) years later is analogous to the date Rav Ashlag gave us for the arrival of Moshiach and the geula in 2018 CE, or 5778 in the Hebrew calendar.

And how does the 70 years play in to this?

A hundred different ways as per The Divine Calendar, but for this article just note that the letter Ayin in the double words (AZR AZR) at Bereshit 20:18 has a numerical value of 70 and that there are 3760 years from the year 2018 HC to 5778 HC, and 3760 = 42.24 x 89 with 422 being the numerical value of the word “seventy (70).”

Moreover, of those 89 mystical double words, all of which help bring us miracles especially that of childbirth, 3 are in the 1st chapter of the Torah, 12 in the next, leaving 70 more plus the four (4) that spell out “Ani YHVH Melech, Amen” or I am G-d, King, amen.” This is analogous to the path of the Jewish soul, as explained by the Arizal, from the YHVH to Adam (of numerical value 45) to the 3 Patriarchs to the 12 sons of Jacob to the 70 family members of Jacob to the 600,000 to the fulfillment of G-d’s Covenant with Abraham in paragraph 45 to make them more numerous than the stars.

And what does this all have to do with the 27.5 inch measure of the ancient and future cubit?

Well, the 42-Letter Name is derived from the 1st verse of the Torah, which ends in Resh-Zadi (RZ) and because these are the 27th and 28th letters of the Torah, we have (27+28)/2 = 55/2 = 27.5. Moreover, 89 x 27.5 = 2448, as in the year of the exodus 2448 HC. As for how that relates to 5778, we’ll just have to wait until the next article on that ancient monument of stone.

Meanwhile, tracing back to the first 3 words in Vayera–Vayera Elav YHVH, meaning G-d Appeared to him–we find that the middle word Elav, is repeated a short time later in the portion, this time with 3 dots over it, one of 10 times this occurs in the Torah, and we know from the sages that these 3 dots represent the 3 archangels that visted Abraham on the 3rd day of his circumcision—Michael, Gabriel, and Rachael—at the entrance to his tent. So not only are we being advised that if we persevere with our good spiritual intentions through our sufferings G-d will send us his angels, but with all the allusions to childbirth and to the arrival of Moshiach in 2018 CE, we are also being specifically advised to persevere with the right consciousness throughout the trials and tribulation of trying to conceive, and moreover through the next 9 years and the birth pangs of Moshiach.

And while G-d will fulfill his Covenant in 2018 (5778) for those that persevere and maintain the proper consciousness, Bereshit 20:18 described the closing of the wombs for everyone who held Sarah captive. And amongst those 89 duplicative words, the word pair Taroph Toraph (TtRP TtRP) appears twice, the first time in paragraph 73 when Joseph was 17 and of the 49 unique pairs, this is the 17th one. The word means to ravage, tear to pieces, and its while the numerical value of the pair is 578, the gematria sofit numerical value of the pair is 2018. Go figure!

Think about that. G-d set every word in the Torah for a reason. G-d set every word for a blessing. 89 of them he set twice. Maybe we should pay attention to them. Life is fraught with obstacles and suffering, but if we know where to look, it’s also full of blessings and the tools to manifest them.

There are two halves to everything, the physical, represented by the feminine receptive letter Hey of the numerical value (5) and the spiritual represented by the masculine giving letter vav of the numerical value (6), together they add up to 11, as in the 11 unique letters in the Torah’s first verse and the 11 incenses that completes the 89 lights of the Menora within the sanctuary of the Holy Temple.

We must also keep in mind, especially in the darkest times that there is a spiritual and a physical component to everything. Through that knowledge you will find the solution.

Tonight is the death anniversary of the great kabbalist Abraham Azulai, may his memory be for a blessing and may G-d bless us all.
