Abraham and the Planet Jupiter; Foretelling the Final Redemption.

Abraham’s journey began with the planet Jupiter; so did ours.  Who knew it would take so long? Regarding our last post on Jupiter and the 40 Days and 40 Nights, David wrote into me with a great insight:

How can we connect this to the fact that Avraham’s astrological array was Jupiter and Hashem moved it from east to west so that it doesnt influence Avraham’s ability to have children? seemingly this means that all his descendants are also under Jupiter’s astrological sign and affected by it.

source Shabbos 156B ““Who awakened Jupiter from the east?”

To understand this you must begin with Shabbos 156A, nevertheless, the Gemara connects that moment when G-d had Abraham gaze up into the stars to Abraham’s age (70) at the Covenant of Halves which occurred in 2018 HC, and this is especially noteworthy given that 2018 CE is 5778 HC, which as per the referenced article just published is the date revealed by both Jupiter’s orbit, the Sun’s temperature and the phrase “40 days and 40 nights,” 5-778.

And more so given that the exact Torah phrase used for “70 years (VShBAYM ShN-H)” has the same exact gematria as the “40 days and 40 nights” or “778 plus the final Hey(5) of Malchut” just like Jupiter’s orbit.

The real significance though is that Israel will be 70 years a nation in 5778 (2018 CE), just as Abraham was 70 years old in 2018 HC. And according to Rav Ashlag (HaSulam) the Covenant will then be fulfilled, coinciding with the Zohar that also enlightens us to that 70 year period prior to the final redemption.

One reference to this is found in Zohar Mishpatim (Ra’aya Meheimna-the deepest secrets section)17, 473-475, regarding “the 70 words in the psalm: ‘May Hashem hear you in the day of trouble (Tehilim 20:2), ” Rav Ashlag explains that this alludes to the 70 sounds made by the expectant mother about to give birth, “being also the 70 sounds given out by the Schechinah for the distress of the children of Yisrael prior to redemption-considered ‘a day of trouble’.” The Zohar intimating a conversation between Moses and Elijah, continues, “Why does She cry out? It is known that among Yisrael there are masters of Torah and kings from the aspect of the star of dawn, namely the Shechinah. There are two grads: morning and dawn, about which it is said: ‘at Your right hand are pleasure evermore (Netzach)” [Tehilim 16:11]. The morning of Abraham, Chesed, appears on the Day of Redemption. But the dawn precedes the Day of Redemption, being Netzach, as the Shechinah from this aspect is called ‘the star  of dawn’.”

In the next paragraph, the Zohar continues explaining, “Hence the chief musician [lamenatzeach] is spelled Netzach [forever] and Lamed-Mem [70], which are the 70 sounds that the doe  [star] of dawn cries out for her children when the darkness of exile overcomes them, the darkness of dawn taking place in the last 70 years. At that time will be fulfilled in Yisrael: ‘Like a woman with child, that draws near the time of delivery, is in pain, and cries out in her pangs; so have we been in your sight, Hashem’ [Yeshayah 26:17]…”

“..The morning alludes to the right hand of Abraham, Messiah, Son of David, who stems from Judah [Yehudah] about whom it is written, ‘Judah is a lion’s whelp’ [Bereshit 49:9]. For this reason, ‘as Hashem lives: lie down until the morning’. [Ruth 3:13].

The Zohar, as always is very deep and cryptic though we can’t miss the obvious allusions that the last 70 years will be painful and include all the birth pangs of Moshiach. So it’s interesting that of the 42 times (Yes, 42 as in the 42-Letter Name, the understanding of which chazal will bring about the final redemption) the 778 plus hey (5) phrase is used in the Torah, the first time is in conjunction with 70 years in Genesis 5:31 with Lemekh(LMC)–kabbalistic code for king(melech, MLC)–who lived for 777 years. And notice that Lemekh(LMC) begins with the Lamed-Mem that the Zohar was referring to above.

And it’s even more significant that the next time it was used was in paragraph 42, Genesis 12:4, when Abraham was 70 years and 5, which is what the Gemara was referring to, in 2018 HC.

As my son pointed out to me at breakfast this morning, Jupiter’s days are 10 hrs long, a possible connection to the 10 sefirot of the Tree-of-life.  What the full connection to Jupiter is yet to be seen, but as the 70 supernal ministers are removed above, so are their respective counterparts in the nations below, and so far since the start of this year 1/1/11, Lebanon, Tunisia, Egypt have fallen, and Jordan, Yemen and Afghanistan are in the process. The prophecies of the Zohar and tzaddikim are being fulfilled.

When the Torah connects the dots, it does it for a reason, and not an insignificant one.  Over the next few weeks we’ll be unraveling more of these trails.

40 Days and 40 Nights; They are longer than We Thought.

As a brief interlude in our series on the secrets of the 10 Commandments and also of the Shema Yisrael, we wanted to point a hidden secret in the phrase 40 days and 40 nights that appeared at the end of this week’s portion, Mishpatim.

8 times the phrase 40 days and 40 nights, or arba’im yom v’arba’im lilah (ERBAYM YVM VERBAYM LYLH) appears in the Torah. The first 2 times it refers to the flood that wiped clean the planet and the rest of the times it refers to Moses ascent on Sinai to bring back the 2 tablets.

Let’s note first that the letter Yud(Y) is present in each word, (ERBAYM YVM VERBAYM LYLH)totaling the value 40, so obviously not a coincidence. These 4 Yuds (YYYY) correspond to the 4 Yuds for healing which is turn trace their source to the 4 Yuds that begin the 4 aspects of the Tetragrammaton (AV, SAG, MAH, BAN).

Nevertheless, what we really wanted to point out is that like the orbit of planet Jupiter, the 5th planet, whose orbit is 778.5 million Km around the Sun, whose temperature is 5778 K, the numerical value of the phrase 40 days and 40 nights, or arba’im yom v’arba’im lilah (ERBAYM YVM VERBAYM LYLH) is 778 though the final Hey, whose numerical value is 5.

Since in Hebrew dates are described by their final 3 digits (778) and since the final H (5) represents the world of Malchut, our world, as it does in the Tetragrammaton (YHVH), this designation within phrase 40 days and 40 Nights makes total sense.

Now, the 20 (esrim) letters in the phrase connect it to keter, the highest sefira (dimension) and the complete gematria value (ordinal plus standard) plus the kolel for the letters also connects it to keter, because it works out to 1000, but there is still something about these 4 words that troubles me.

They are mentioned 8 times and refer to events that happened in 1658 and 2448 respectively, 790 years apart. When we add up the gematria sofit of the letters without that same final H, we get 2458, which is 10 more than the year 2448, but it does makes the difference a more perfect 800.

We are used to things in the Torah working our perfectly and when the don’t there is usually a reason for it.  I mean 8 times the 80 (40 plus 40) days/nights are mentioned over 800 years would have been perfect, especially since Noach has the numerical value 58 and there are exactly 58 words, verses and letters in the Torah (the 5 Books of Moses).

Of course, Noach and the flood was the 10th generation from Adam, and the 10 Commandments were received in 2448, and they were both really about the 10 sefirot of the Tree-of-life, so since 5778 is the year 2018 and 2018 is 10 years after 2008 and 5778 is 3330 years after 2448 and 3330/1658 = 2.008, maybe all 3 dates and the phrase 40 days and 40 nights hint to the rectification of the 10 sefirot of the Tree-of-life in the final 10 years to 2018 (5-778).

We’ll return to part III in our series on the 10 Commandments shorty as they are truly the highpoint in the Torah and for us, contain the most important revelation to date.

Shavua Tov

Jupiter, the 5th Planet from the Sun.

The other day my son brought home his science work, which stated that Jupiter, the 5th planet from the Sun, had an orbit of 778.5 million km from it. That was pretty astonishing given that the Sun’s surface temperature is 5778K and that 5778 is the year the tzaddikim have prophesied for the final redemption (Geula), and that the Earth’s hundred-year average temperature is swiftly approaching 57.78 degrees F. So I looked it up:

Semi-major axis 778,547,200 km (5.204267 AU)
Eccentricity 0.048775

Thanks to wikipedia, I quickly learned that my son’s teacher was correct, and that Jupiter’s eccentricity is .048775, which also includes 5778 just in reverse order.

We’ll get into the significance of the temperature soon in a larger article on the important subject, but I just wanted to throw out the question why Jupiter (Zedek)?

What is the spiritual and physical relationship that binds Jupiter to the Sun and to us on Earth that it was undeniably tied into the Divine Calendar which counts the 5778 times the Earth will have circled the Sun from Adam to Moshiach (the Messiah) and the 3330 times since the reception of the Torah at Sinai?

Please note in the information supplied by wikipedia (and re-verified) that the Sun has a mass approximately 333,000 times Earth’s.

Moreover, Jupiter has the same density as the Sun and its radius is 1/10th that of the Sun and its mass 1/1000th.

To further aid us in determining the spiritual link between the Earth, Sun and Jupiter is the wiki-fact that while Jupiter (the 5th planet) is much larger volume-wise than the Earth its mass is only 318 times as great, and that 318 is both the number of men Abraham sent to battle the 5 Kings and is the sum of the initials of the 5 parts of the soul.

Oh, and Jupiter’s magnetic field is 4.2 gauss (0.42 mT) at the equator, 14 times as strong as Earth’s, which is interesting given that the tzaddim have said that the understanding of the 42-Letter Name of G-d is what will held bring about the final redemption.

That’s enough from me. So why Jupiter?

Jupiter is the fifth planet from the Sun and the largest planet within the Solar System

Although this planet dwarfs the Earth with a diameter 11 times as great, it is considerably less dense. Jupiter’s volume is equal to 1,321 Earths, yet the planet is only 318 times as massive.[5][21] Jupiter has a radius equal to 0.10 times the radius of the Sun,[22] and has a mass of 0.001 times the mass of the Sun, making them approximately equal in density.

Jupiter’s broad magnetic field is 14 times as strong as the Earth’s,  4.2 gauss (0.42 mT) at the equator.

The solar mass (\begin{smallmatrix}M_\odot\end{smallmatrix}), 1.98892×1030
kg, is the standard unit of mass in astronomy, used to indicate the masses of other stars and galaxies. It is equal to the mass of the Sun, about two nonillion kilograms or about 332,950 times the mass of the Earth or 1,048 times the mass of Jupiter.

The first person to estimate the mass of the Sun was Isaac Newton, a known Kabbalist. In his work Principia, he estimated that the ratio of the mass of the Earth to the Sun was about 1/28,700. Later he determined that this value was based upon a faulty value for the solar parallax, which was used to estimate the distance to the Sun (1 AU). He revised his result to obtain a ratio of 1/169,282 in the third edition of the Principia. The current value for the solar parallax is smaller still, giving the correct mass ratio of 1/332,946.[5]
