Passover is More Than You Think; Pesach is More Than You Can Imagine.

The Shabbat prior to Pesach (Passover) is called Shabbat HaGadol (the Great Shabbath). The word HaGadol occurs 26 times in the Torah, the same numerical value of the Tetragrammaon (YHVH) and 18 of those times the word HaGadol  (HGDL) is written with the cholam (vowel) instead of the Vav, giving it a numerical value of 42, the same as the 42-Letter Name of G-d. The number 18 is the well-known numerical value of Chai (life) and not coincidentally the square root of 18 is 4.2426, with 424 being the value of Moshiach Ben David. And all this is only to provide us with clues.

The real significance of this is that Shabbat HaGadol acts as a gateway to Pesach, much as the Gate of 42 is the final gate before entering the Holy of Holies in the Holy Temples, including the Future Holy Temple. This gateway to Pesach is more than a metaphor.

According to the sages  the first and last verses of the Torah link together seamlessly to form a complete cycle, or circle, which is why they are read together contiguous every year around the holiday of Sukkot. This analogy of an annual cycle is strengthen by the design which splits the 19 words into the 7 words of the first verse and the 12 of the last.  We realign our 12-month lunar cycles with our solar ones in cycles of 7 and 19, and this keeps the calendar progressing at an even pace and guides which portions of the Torah are read in which week in any given year.

One Shabbat not long ago I challenged my 8-year-old daughter to figure out which letters of the Hebrew alphabet were not included in the Torah’s first verse. She promptly figured out all 11 of them, and then added, “Why don’t we check the last verse too.” Since I consider EVERYONE to be my teacher, especially my children, we did. Lo and behold, there were 20 letters utilized and only 2 that weren’t:  Pe and Samech.

Samech and Pe spelled Saf (SP), as in end, threshold, but not a word we find in the Torah per se.  Nevertheless, there are 12 days of preparation, when we read a special portion of the Torah daily, leading to the 7 days of Pesach, which is spelled Pe, Samech, and Chet spell Pesach (PSCh).

The end of the Chet(Ch), which according to the sages gets circumcised at Pesach and become a He(H); hence chametz (ChMZ) is transformed into matzah (MZH).

So joining the Chet to the Pe and Samech, left 19 letters and begged the question: Why were these three letters isolated? Why was Pesach considered outside the realm of the annual cycle?

It is because the 7 days of Pesach are actually another dimension entirely, and once we climb the 15 steps of the seder to enter it, we are beyond the earthly realm. This is why there is another seder at the end of Pesach, to ease our descent back down.  This is also why all the cleaning for Pesach is essential. It’s a cleansing, or purification, process that prepares us to align ourselves with the energy of this higher dimension.

Pesach is a gift, the diamond set in the ring opposite the cyclical closure of the Torah’s first and last verses around Sukkot 6 months earlier.

The exodus from Egypt brought the Israelites to another dimension as well, a higher state, a place of Keter as indicated by the 620 letters in the 10 Commandments.  They too left all there chametz (personal garbage/klippot/negativity behind) and went through a final cleansing as they passed through the Sea of Reeds.

Getting rid of all the chametz in our lives is about disconnecting from the physicality; it’s a preparation for the time of Moshiach (the Messiah), which B”H will be upon us very soon. For nearly 3330 years, ever since the exodus and the reception of the Torah at Sinai, we’ve been rehearsing every Spring for the arrival of Moshiach consciousness. Except, most of us have treated it as Biblical reenactment, or even as a family gathering. It was nice, but we missed the point.

This time around, once we cross over, we should find (feel) joy in everything.  Each letter and word of the Passover Haggadah should ignite us with happiness. And every moment in this paradisaical dimension should feel, well, like Heaven. To the extent that it doesn’t reveals how much more cleansing we need to do in order to see through the darkened veils.

When we take away these 7 days of the year from the annual cycle of 365, we’re left with 358 days and 358 is the numerical value of Moshiach.  Likewise, the 210 years of exile in Egypt plus Pesach (PSCh of numerical value 148) equals 358.

So let’s all scrub and clean and cleanse the physicality out of our lives, so that we can climb easily into this higher dimension called Pesach, experience the otherworldly pleasures within, and after 7 days we can return from this vacation refreshed and rejuvenated. Or better yet, return without descending, bringing the Moshiach consciousness back with us, like a cloak of dew upon the spring grasses, helping to prepare our world for what is to come. Pesach is as much a community event as it is a personal one and it’s our responsibility to bring back and spread that consciousness for the sake of our brethren.

On Sukkot we make a space for that world within our own and connect to Keter. On Pesach (PE SMC ChYT) whose letters when spelled out with the kolel have the same numerical value as Keter, 620, we leave our world and ascend to that lofty dimension.

This year, as we circle the stellar ring, let’s grab that brilliant diamond and bring it home.

 Chag Pesach Sameach

May this be an amazing Pesach for us all,

Ezra

Torah Perfection

More Torah perfection awaits those that choose to see. Before we move on to the promised article on”the beast” there was an important bit of Torah knowledge that we neglected to pass on in our last post.

We recently illustrated that the square root of the total number of words, letters and verses in the Torah is exactly 625, which matched the Regressive (squared) spelling out of the 4 aspects of G-d Name, YHVH, which led us to conclude that there was a part of G-d Name at the source of each individual letter, etc in the Torah.

We further illustrated that 6252 equaled 58 and that .625 is also exactly 5/8. We then mentioned that in choosing 5778 as the year of the geula,G-d must have known that 5778 is only 22 (as in the 22 letters) years shy of 5800 and that it must all play some part together is His grand plan.

What we neglected to mention was that the Torah, as is all Hebrew, is built only 22 letters–building blocks, as Abraham the Patriarch referred to them in his Sefer Yetzirah–and that each of those those has a specific numerical value corresponding to their spiritual energy.

That energy and numerical values is the basis for all gematria and that Kabbalistic studies. And when the sum up the total numerical value of all 304,805 letters in the Torah, we get 33640626, which is precisely  5800.053972, off by only626 from 5800.0002. 626 is obviously 625 + 1 (Kolel).  As mentioned before, 625 is the gematria value of H’Keter,  the crowning sefira (dimension), above all else.

Man obviously didn’t create the Torah. It would have been beyond his capabilities just considering the few facts in this post, which are but a drop in the bucket to all the others we’re previously revealed in The Genesis Prayer, the Divine Calendar, Nothing is Random in the Universe, and our hundreds of articles, and these are but a drop in the ocean compared to what’s really in the Torah. Nevertheless, if Man didn’t create the Torah, who did, and why base it on G-d’s Name?

However you answer that, and there can be only one right answer, you must then ask what the meaning is behind the 5-8 relationship? Remember numbers are only reflections of the energy levels an sources they represent. Why was it so important to the Torah’s design? What will it mean for us as we quickly approach the prophesied date of 5800 – 22 (5778, 2018 CE)?

The 10 Commandments Part IX: The Ultimate Revelation

…Continued from The Ten Commandments

There was going to be 10 parts to this series, but due to the unfolding crisis in Japan, we felt it best to skip  to the most critical and most significant revelations about and from the 10 Commandments, those critical to our understanding of what is happening in our world today. Our last article in the series was the encoded timing for the Moshiach (messiah) and of the final redemption, and of those few sols that managed to cross over 3330 years ago during the last opening of the Tree-of-life reality at Mt Sinai.

The Alter

The word Mizbayach (MtzBCh), the Alter, whose construction is described in detail in the 3rd (middle) of the 5 special portions has the numerical value of 62, as in Keter, the highest sefira (dimension) of numerical value 620, just as so many other connections to the 10 Commandments( Utterances), including the 620 letters and the 62 letter Yuds of the 10 Commandments that were engraved on the 2 Tablets housed in the Tabernacle (MishKan). And this all fits since there are 100 (an appellation of Keter) occurrences of the word H’Mizbeach in the Torah, 22 of them through chapter 34 and the carving of the second set of tablets, which terminates the special 5 portion set of 22,000 letters.

And contained within the Hebrew word for “The Alter” (HMzBCh) are the  initials of the 42-Letter Name (Mem-Bet) so integral to the structure of the Torah, the universe, and so necessary for the geula, final redemption.

Within”The Alter” (HMzBCh) the (Mem-Bet) is accompanied by the letters Hey ,Zayin, and Chet whose collective numerical value is 20, “esrim” in Hebrew, of numerical value 620. Individually, the 3 letters sequentially have the values,  5-7-8, as in the year given to us by Rav Ashlag and the tzaddikim, 5778 (2018 ce) for the geula, advent of the Tree-of-life reality.

If you examine the number 620, you’ll see that it is the product of 31 and 20, or 31 x 20 = 620.  As discussed early on in this series 31 is the numerical value of El (G-d) and also L0 (don’t), as in the Commandments not to do things, and while 20 is the numerical value of the letter Yud (YVD) and the word for 20 has the value 620 itself, the 10 Commandments are all in chapter 20 of Exodus, a very important point as you’ll soon see.

Nevertheless, back to the word Mizbeach (MZBCh), which without the prefix “the” has the numerical value 57, meaning the remaining letters would then be Z-CH or 78, thus encoded within the Hebrew word for the Alter, where all the sacrifices are performed, is the simple message “42 and 5778.”

Soon we’ll begin a new series on the construction of the Future Holy Temple as detailed by R’ Chaim Luzzatto of blessed memory. For the moment, we’d like to point out that the Alter in the Future Holy Temple measures 32 x 32 cubits and is in the exact center (heart, lev of numerical value 32) of a series of concentric (nested) symmetrical courtyards, the most inner of which measures 100 x 100 cubits.  We bring this up only for the reference to the 100 times “the alter” is mentioned in the Torah.

To Be or Not To Be

The Hebrew word Eem (EM) of numerical value 41, as in the 41 letters of the spelled out name of G-d, Ehyeh (EHYH) , can translate to mother, Matriarch, matrix, or “if” or “whether,” as it’s used repeatedly in the laws (precepts) of G-d given in the 4 chapters subsequent to the 10 Commandments, which together comprise the special 5 chapters of 22,000 letters.

What makes it so germane to our discussion of the 10 Commandments is that the word EM is found 62 times in Genesis, just like the Name Elohim, which begins and ends with EM.

And, not only is the word EM found 77 times through the 10 Commandments, as in 5778; and 86 (the value of Elohim) times through chapter 21 (the value of Ehyeh); but it’s found another 21 times throughout the 5 portions for a total 107 times through chapter 34, the chapter in which the 2nd set of tablets was received. And 107 is indicative of the sum of all the positive integers through 107, whose collective energy and sum equates to 5778.

Now, the final point to be made today out of all this is that the year 6000, is when most people expect the arrival of Moshiach. But the tzaddikim of blessed memory have arrived at 5778 as the approximate date, and we’ve shown a preponderance of evidence physical, spiritual, comic, and primordial that the prescribed year does indeed appear to be 5778 (2018 ce). So why the discrepancy?

The differential of 6000 – 5778 = 222 years represents the 2 divergent paths forged in the 22,000 letters by the doubts of the Israelites.

Thus when we divide 222 by 358 (Mashiach) and we get 222/358 = .620, keter, and are sent back to the 10 Commandments.

As we get closer to 5778 (2018 ce) it’s important to realize that when we question it should not be of our faith, but only of our understanding.  The reason to question, should be to dig deeper, not to create separation, as our ancestors did the last time they stood at keter.

If you follow the path of the 222 you’ll see that 222 x 26 (YHVH) = 5772, the year 2012 CE, and if you believe in the Mayan calendar prophecies of 12/21/12, you’ll find yourself deep in the trail of doubts, for when those 6 final years before 5778 mimic the Israelites failure to wait 6 hours for Moses’ return with G-d’s Tablets, and the Tree-of-life eternal reality.

We stood there before; we know the routine. This time, let’s get it right.

Of course, just to make sure we had everything we need to get it right this time, the Torah provided us with a road map, and shoved it under our noses every year for the past 3330 years.

And no, it’s not the 10 plagues; It’s the 10 Commandments. They are being played out as right now.

It began in 2001, corresponding to Exodus 20:01 that initiates the Torah’s 70th Chapter, the Keter sequence of the 10 Commandments.  It began with a jolt, a new reality realized on 9/11.

On June 8th, 2002 the prophesied 1370 reign of Ishmael (Islam, 10 years for each of the 137 years of his life) over the Israelites ended. This coincided with the beginning of the 620 letters of the 10 Commandments in Exodus 20:02 “I am God your Lord, who brought you out of Egypt, from the place of slavery.” Like Pharaoh before them, they were not giving up without a fight, which brought us the attack in Mombasa on Nov 28th, 2002.

Exodus 20:03 “Do not have any gods before me”  An earthquake on Dec 26th, 2003 killed 40,000+ people in BaM, Iran, one of the many events Mem-Bet events over this 18 year period.

Exodus 20:04 “Do not represent [such gods] by any carved statue or picture of anything  in the heaven above, on the earth below, or in the water below the land.” Exactly, one year after the earthquake in BaM, on Dec 26th, 2004 230,000 people died from the tsunami (mabul) resulting from the 9.3 Earthquake off the coast of Meulaboh, Indonesia.

In 2008 we were stuck financially, leading to the world markets losing 42% of their value and wide scale loss of jobs (livelihood), while in Exodus 20:08 we were told, “Remember the Sabbath and keep it holy.”  And lets not forget it was Erev Rosh Hashannah that September when the NY stock market closed down 5% or 778 pts.  While Exodus 20:08 was the 4th Commandment, 2008 also brought us the attack on/in Mumbai on Nov 26th, Bernie Madoff, and of course, our 44th President, President Barack Obama.

In continuation, Exodus 20:09 and 20:10 insisted no one do anything that constitutes work on the Sabbath, which brings us to today, 2011.

As for this year 2011, Exodus 20:11 tells us that in the six(6) days, God made the heaven, the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on Saturday. God blessed the Sabbath and made it holy. So this year, what we’ll see is events from space, the earth, the sea and all that is in them. It’s no wonder the birds fell from the sky and the fish died on 1/1/2011.

Each one of these fish kill images represents millions of fish and they all occurred in different parts of the world this year, from Louisiana to Scotland to Thailand to Redondo beach California, and we could have posted similar images from several more diverse locations.  Whatever it is, it’s global.

We wrote this section back in January when we began our series on the 10 Commandments; unfortunately, the events have continued with millions and millions of fish washing up ashore last week in California and then the devastating 9.0 earthquake and ensuing tsunami that hit Japan and thus created the terrifying chain of nuclear events that are happening to the 6 reactors there.

In Exodus 20:12 it’s honor your father and mother, then murder, adultery, stealing and false witness in 20:13.

In 20:14, don’t be envious of your neighbor

Then in 20:15 “All the people saw the sounds, the flames, the blast of the ram’s horn, and the smoking mountain.”

Hold on to your hats, folks.

In Exodus 20:16 “If God speaks with us anymore, we will die.”

Then in Exodus 20:17 Moses says, “God only came to you to raise you up.”

And in Exodus 20:18. It ended. “The people kept their distance while Moses entered the mist where the divine was revealed.

This is the road map for the next 7 years. The ministers of the 70 nations are falling rapidly, especially in the Mid-East, as prophesied in the Zohar, including Mubarak of Egypt, who fittingly was forced from his throne on the death anniversary of Moshe Rabbeinu (Moses).

Chapter 20 of Exodus is the 70th chapter of the Torah.  The pinnacle of the Chapter ends at Exodus 20:18: “The people kept their distance while Moses entered the mist where the divine was revealed.” This time it coincides with the 70th anniversary  of Israel becoming a nation in 5778 (2018 ce).

It’s obvious in all this that there was always two choices, two paths.
It’s all about G-d giving us 10 simple rules (commandments) in order to reach the Tree-of-life, and we couldn’t follow them.

Purim is almost upon us, when we take off our masks–by concealing our identity and getting inebriated we’re actually giving ourselves permission to reveal who we truly are–and reveal the truth.

It’s time to take off the masks from the Bible, and see the simple Torah truth. Either we follow G-d’s 10 simple rules, spiritually and physically, or we follow the prescribed consequences.  2 paths, 2 futures, 1 time table.

G-d willing, B’H, we will choose correctly.

The Ten Commandments Part VIII: 666, the Most Feared Number?

…Continued from The Ten Commandments

Our last article in the series was about relationship between the time of flood, Noah, Moses, the time of the 10 Commandments, and the time of the final redemption. l

The People

The people, “ET H’AM“, that G-d refers to has the numerical value of 516, which we know from chazal is the number of times Moses needed to pray if he wished to enter the Land of Israel and bring the final redemption, but G-d had instructed Moses to stop at 515. And as we’ve previous written, according to the Arizal these coincide with the 516 hours between Rosh Hashanna and Hoshanna Rabba.

Then 4 verses later, after Moses pleaded on their behalf, the 4 Hebrew word phrase, “God refrained from doing that evil,” has a gematria of 516 as well when the kolel of 4 is subtracted. The connection between them is that G-d put off that decree to destroy the people in the same way that he put off the final redemption h’geula for 66.6 jubilees years.

It’s simple:

The numerical value of h’geula is 50 and 66.6 x 50 = 3330

And

2448 + 3330 = 5778.

But as all judgments, they can be meted out with harshness or mercy. In this case, it was mercy. With the generation of Noach, it was harshness for as chazal explain, Noach didn’t pray for the people as Moses had. The lesson here is that mercy comes when we pray for others.

Back in paragraph 123, Exodus 31:12-17, when G-d is telling Moses to tell the Israelites to keep the Sabbath, making it a day of rest and a sign to you for all generations, “as an eternal covenant,” He referred back to Creation again, and repeated that He made Heaven and Earth in 6 days and on the seventh (Shabbat) “He ceased work and withdrew to the spiritual.”

There are 6666 letter Bets(B) in the Torah up to that point, reminiscent of the value 66666.308 x 26, which as previously stated was the total gematria of the 22,000 letters in this full 5 portion section.

One way to interpret this is that at the 6’s He stopped working on us, and withdrew to spiritual, for in the very next paragraph, the Israelites at the urging and persuasion of the erev rav decide they couldn’t wait another 6 hours, and in 6 verses they made the golden calf instead. It appears they stopped working on themselves first. So is it surprising that the numerical value of the biblical “golden calf” is 108, which is 18 x 6, or chai x 6, meaing giving “life” to the 6. It’s also (6+6+6) x 6.

And 108 as 1 more than 107, which we know indicates the year 5778 (2018 CE), makes the statement that the erev rav (the people) need to wait 1 period beyond 5778, they need to atone for the 6 hours and 6 verses; they’ll need to wait until the 6th millennium, the year 6000, 222 years more.  But beware, knowing that, they will probably do everything they can to prevent everyone else from achieving the Tree-of-life reality in 5778, just as they did 66.6 jubilee years earlier.

The word “spiritual (vyinafash, VYNGSh) has the same gematria, 446, as mot, death. This double meaning is similar to Moshiach and Snake, in that when we’re not working (on ourselves) it can be like and thus can lead to death, or if we chose otherwise, it can lead to connectivity to the spiritual realm, where our physical down-time is a spiritual time (not a dead rest time), a time to work on ourselves spiritually and thus recharge our physical world for the coming 7 day cycle.

This dichotomy on a grander scale is indicating that the 66.6 jubilee (Biblical 50 year period) will lead either to death (a permanent end) or to the spiritual realm (the tree-of-life reality) in the 7th period, and this time frame is hinted at by the 5761 letter Nuns(N), each of numerical value 50, through this same location in the Torah, as in the year 2001 CE, when it appears the period of Oy and Ashrei began (at least physically) with 9/11. Spiritually it began in 5760 as Rav Abraham Azulai suggested it would, 18 (6+6+6) years before 5778.

As we will explain very soon in the upcoming articles in Ten Commandment series the year 2001 CE was indeed marked by the Ten Commandments themselves as the beginning, and the 18-year period was laid out for us.

If we consider chazal’s analysis that after 6 millenniums, the geula will happen in the 7th, then we have to look at the millenniums as elefs (thousands) each of which has the numerical word value of 111, and thus the 6 of them total 666. Thus 66.6 equals 6 millenniums.

And just to hammer home the point, up until chapter 32 and the 6 verses of the golden calf there are 5777 letter nun’s of value 50, and thus symbolically and spiritually related to the 50-year jubilee period.

As the Zohar explains, the thousands are found in YHVH, and jubilee is Binah.  And the aspect of the YHVH that corresponds to Binah is Sag (YVD HY VEV HY). The 3 Yuds (YYY) at this level each have a value of 10 and when multiplied together form 10 x 10 x10 =1000.

And since there are 600,000 component letters in the Torah, the 5 component and composite yuds in YHVH similarly form 10 x 10 x 10 x 10 x 10 = 100,000. To understand this you must see the two letters Hey (H) as their component dalet-yud’s 2 x (DY) and combine them with the letters vav (VV) to form yud (YVD) and yud (YVD). You then add the Yud (Y) of YHVH and the two component yuds (Y) from the Heys, and you get the 5 total yuds in the YHVH at the level of Malchut (Ban), which is the level that the 600,000 souls fell back to when it was decreed they needed to restart the correction process.

Okay, so maybe it was 408 souls that ascended to Keter, or 4 x 102, the numerical value of emunah (faith). And maybe that makes sense since 408 = 407 + 1 (Moses) and the square root of 407 = 20.17424, considering that 424 is the value of Mashiach Ben David and 2017 CE is the year 5777.

But considering 620 is the value of Keter and there were 620 letters in the 10 Commandments, why not 620 souls?

Why not? We do know though that 620-408 = 202, as in verse 20:2 where the 10 Commandments and the 22,000-letters began. Perhaps this had something to do with it. Who knows?

And since everything to do with the special set of 22,000 letters, the embedded gift within the Bible, has to do with 10 and the power of 10, perhaps it has something to do with 408 x 6 being equal to 2448 and also that the square root of ((600,000 – 408) x 10 ) also equals 2448 .

Let’s not forget that it was the year 2448 when the 2nd Tree-of-life opportunity, the 10 Commandments, occurred, and that that is 66.6 jubilee years before 5778.

Could it be for that reason that the Hebrew letters break down into 50 component letters, representing the Jubilee period, and that because of this they form the 600,000 – 408 equations. After all, G-d was pretty emphatic that we count the Jubilee years.

To be continued shortly with Part IX.
