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.

5 Kings vs 4 Kings; The Battle between Good and Evil.

The portion Lech Lecha, the 3rd in the Torah, is about letting go of our negativity and moving on.

According to the Arizal, there are 5 level of Holiness (of the soul) and 4 of evil, since there is no level of evil corresponding to the highest level, yechida.  This is the secret meaning of the battle in this last week’s portion between 5 kings verses 4 kings.

And to further illustrate that the first letter of each of the 5 levels of souls sum numerically to 318 and the Torah tells us there were 318 Men with Abraham when he rescued Lot.  This further corresponds to the first letter of the last 3 lines of the Ana B’koach (42-Letter Name of G-d), which are Shin-Yud-Chet

Yechida   –

Chaya      – 3rd level of evil

Neshama – 2nd level of evil

Ruach     – 1st level of evil

Nefesh    – neutrality (klippot noga)

This battle between good and evil had to be fought and one before we (Abraham) could move on.  The Torah is showing us that we can’t simply say we want to let go of our negative inclinations; we must fight a battle over them and win. And if we want to rescue a part of ourselves that has succumbed to the unholy side, we must bring all 5 parts of our soul (everything we’ve got) to bear against it. We must outnumber it 5 to 4.

It’s also telling us good will always outnumber evil if we go into battle spiritually complete.  And take the Ana B’koach along with you, as Abraham, and countless other tzaddikim did.

By tomorrow, bli nader, we will publish the secret of the ancient and future cubit and begin our journey into the Future Temple. This secret measure has not been revealed in thousands of years, not even by the Ramchal who revealed much about the Future Temple, but if not now, when?

Hashem hid the secret measurement in His Name. He hid it in the number and concept of 3, and he hid it in stone for all to see…

The Power of 3; Your Life Depends on it.

Before we reveal the measure of the ancient and future cubit, it is imperative that we understand the universal concept of 3. A true understanding of the sefirot (dimensions) and what their names signify is beyond all of us. It’s like trying to tell someone without a sense of smell or taste what freshly made ice cream, chocolate, or warm homemade apple pie is like, and even that analogy is very weak by comparison. We can’t even fathom them. And this is why the universe (Hashem) has given us the Ana B’koach (42-Letter Name of G-d); it serves as our nexus to the spiritual world.

Know that the light that our world depends on gets channeled through the Supernal Holy Temple in a balanced way, and that much of the power behind the number 3 lies in the balance struck between the first 3 sefirotChesed, Gevurah and Tiferet of Zeir Anpin–but what can that possibly mean for us?

Chesed is Loving-kindness, or the unconditional Love that Hashem has for us, which is why the first line, associated with Chesed, of the Ana B’koach has a numerical value of 506, that of Ahavatchinam (Unconditional love). This the love and joy of perpetual giving, the unceasing love and desire for our well-being that Hashem showers on us constantly. This is wonderful, but what place does that leave us in this universe? What purpose would we serve other than to take from G-d, which is why there is a 2nd phase for this light, one that allows us to participate and grow within the universe, utilizing the concept of free will.

The second line corresponds with judgment, din, the natural phase of the light where our actions receive immediate and just reactions, which we see as punishments and the universe sees as simple physics.

You step on someone’s toe, someone else steps on yours. Simple enough, and if we’d learn right away from that it would be a good thing and we’d all live easier more righteous lives. But what happens if the person whose toe we stepped on gets an infection from it and dies, or he later pushes someone too far because of the bad mood we set up for him and that person creates a negativity chain that winds up in someone else’s personal ruin or death? Would we want that punishment for ourselves? The universe holds us responsible and we’d have to pay (eye-for-an-eye) for that entire chain of negativity (action by action). That’s why there is a 3rd phase of the light, mercy, rachem.

Taken together the numerical value of chesed, and din is 72 + 64 + kolel(1)= 137, which is that of the work Kabablah, meaning “to receive,” but to receive this light in a balanced way we need the third phase, just as the electrons and protons need the neutrons to form stable and useful atoms.

Taken together the numerical value of chesed, din, and rachem is 72 + 64 + 248 +Kolel (3)= 387, which is that of the 3rd line of the Ana B’koach (NGD YCSh), which is structured to balance the light of loving kindness and judgment into life-sustaining mercy.

With mercy, our judgment are mitigated and we’re given time to reflect on and make amends for our actions. Think of the first line and sefira of chesed as space, the 2nd as motion, and the 3rd as time, completing the physics of “time, space and motion.” We can use this 3rd line of the Ana B’koach (NGD YCSh) combined with spiritual and heart-felt intentions to further mitigate our judgments, and we should start seeing life as a string of merciful incidents rather than as one of punishments.
For example, a minor fender-bender as inconvenient as it might be, may very well be a merciful way to spare you of a fatal car crash that some action in your past inadvertently warranted. Seeing life as filled with mercy is a big step forward toward reaching the Tree-of-life reality where the mercy will be inherent, obvious and universal. Until we’re there, we have the gift of the Ana B’koach. (get and read The Genesis Prayer if you don’t have it).

In our next article we’ll reveal the ancient and future cubit and you’ll understand why comprehending this concept of 3 and balance was important to grasp first.

With Love,

Ezra

To See…

We’ve spent a great deal of time delving into the secrets of the Torah and increasing our awe of G-d (Hashem) and his unbelievably perfect and complex works. And we just recently explained that speaking and listening and “seeing” with the heart is the key to taking that awe and extending it to all His creations, and thus to truly become one with them and thus Him. That combination will elevate us to a very high level, but it takes one more ingredient to bring Mashiach. And that is CERTAINTY.

The word for certainty in Hebrew, Veda’ut (VEDEVT) has the numerical value of 418, like that of the spelling of the letter chet, the 8th letter, representing the Brit (Covenant), and the connection to all the significant Biblical dates, as we’ve seen in The Divine Calendar. But when we add the kolel for the 6 letters in the word, we get 424, the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David—a hint of what certainty can really bring us.

When we add the numerical value of “unconditional love,” Ahavatchinam, 506 to 424, we get 930, as in the 930 years of Adam, which we know from the sages is deliberately 70 years less than 1000, and moreover, that 70 is the numerical value of Sod (secrets), as in the deeper Torah, and the 70 faces of the Torah as described by the sages. Therefore, the sefira of Keter, the highest possible crowning level (dimension), or 1000, is achieved by combining the deeper study of Torah (Sod Torah) with unconditional love and certainty.

So what is certainty? We’re not taking about having certainty in what we’re doing, or that what we’re doing is the right thing, or that we will succeed in what we are doing, but certainty that G-d is behind it all and that He wants the best for us at all times. And it is the certainty that when we go through rough times, G-d is there to see us through them and to help us out of them. But, of course, we must have certainty, and then we will be able “to see” our way clear.

Last week’s Torah, portion is Reah, meaning “to see.” In the first paragraph of the portion of Reah, after telling us that if we follow His ways, we will have all the blessings, we are told to have certainty that there is only one G-d and one spiritual path.

Devarim 11:28 “The curse [will come] if you do not obey the commandments of God your Lord, and you go astray from the path that I am proscribing for you today, following other gods to have a novel spiritual experience.”

This goes for our individual lives and also for our collective life that spans all humanity and all generations. Tehilim (Psalm) 107 is about giving thanks to the Lord for delivering us from desolation, captivity, sickness, and the sea. It is about delivering us from the 4 exiles that have spanned the generations for 5778 years.

We’ve discussed in numerous articles that the sum of all the positive integers through 107 is 5778, and that there are 54 portions in the 5 Books of Moses, the Torah, and that our brains operate on a frequency of 54 pulses per minute, and moreover, that 54 x 107 = 5778, so let’s look at Psalm 107 and Isaiah 54 to see what, if anything, they might have to do with 5778, the date the tzaddikim have suggested for the arrival of H’Moshiach (the Messiah).

The number 107, or in Hebrew KTz, can also represent the word Zak (KTz) meaning purify, or Zek, to chain (link) together, as in linking together the 107 integers that add up to 5778.

Psalm 107, the first in the 5th Book of Psalms, written by King David, whose 70 year life marked the exact midpoint from Adam to 5778, begins with the verse “Hodu l’Adonai Ki Tov Hi L’Olam Chasdo,” which has the gematria value of 402 and with its 24 letters, it has a total value of 426-2 (kolel) = 424, the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David.

The verse translates to “Give thanks to Hashem for He is good for forever endures His kindness.”

Before we break down the verse, we should note that the first letters of the first 4 of the 43 verses in this Psalm, (YHVT) also add up to 424, when adjusted for the kolel, and initials of the first 5 verses spell our Yud Torah (Y-TVRH), and add up to 620, the numerical value of Keter, when adjusted for the kolel, as in the 62 yuds(Y) of numerical value 10 each in the 10 Commandments (Utterances), which was the last time we stood before the offering of the Tree-of-Life reality.

That said, the middle 3 words of this 7 word semi-symmetrical verse add up to 77, and the final word has the numerical value of 78, which seems to spell out 5778, starting with the 5th Book, 7 words, 77 value in the middle, and ending with 78 as in the initials of the Tree-of-Life (YZ, ChYYM).

And speaking of symmetry, while the standard gematria value of the verse is 402, the ordinal value of the 24 letters is 204. And while the last 2 words add up to 814 in gematria sofit, which is the numerical value of the paraphrased verse “Love thy neighbor as thyself,” the other 5 words add up to 148, a reshuffling of the digits in 814.

As explained in prior articles, the arrival of Moshiach and the final redemption in the end of days is the complete union of the 6 dimensions of Zeir Anpin with that of our dimension Malchut, also known as the fusion of the Names YHVH with Adonai (EDNY).

So to grasp what this means (intellectually, for we must then process it through our hearts). (YHVH + EDNI) = YEHDVNHY = 91, the numerical value of Amen, but when we spell out the 8 letters in (YHVH + EDNI) or YEHDVNHY and add them up we get 232 for the 4 aspects of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) and 671 for Adonai (EDNY) spelled out ELP+DLT+NVN+YVD as explained by the Arizal. And 232 + 671 = 903, which is immediately recognizable as the sum of all the positive integers through 42, and as always, it’s a connection to the 42-Letter Name of G-d that is the Tree-of-Life and that fuses Zeir Anpin with Malchut, and as the sages tell us, is as necessary for bringing about the geula (final redemption) as it was for bringing about Creation and the Torah.

But when we add 671 (the fully expressed Adonai) to 107, we get 778, as in 5778.

671 + 107 = 778. And, of course, 107 + 65 (the simple Adonai) = 172, the numerical value of Ekev, the Torah portion before Reah, and the word heel, as in the heel of Adam, which is what the sages tell us is our generation, the last one before the final opportunity to reach the Tree-of-Life reality.

As it states in the Midrash, “His heel threw a shadow on the orb of the sun.” Since we know the surface temperature of the sun is 5778 K, we have another cryptic allusion to the generation of heel connecting Malchut (heel) with the Sun (Zeir Anpin) in 5778.

Now, as for Isaiah 54, read as the Haftorah portion along with Reah, we see what the Lord says about the end of days, about what will come after we’ve brought the secrets of the Torah into out hearts and shared our love unconditionally, and reached out with certainty and after we have given thanks to the Lord for our deliverance:

Isaiah 54:11

“Unhappy, storm-tossed one, uncomforted!” Recall that Tehilim (Psalm) 107 is about giving thanks to the Lord for delivering us from desolation, captivity, sickness, and the sea.

Isaiah 54:11-17

“Unhappy, storm-tossed one, and disconsolate!

I will set your stones in fair colors,

And lay the foundations with sapphires.

I will make your pinnacles of rubies,

Your gates of precious stones,

And your walls of precious gems.

And all you children will be taught about God;

Great will be the peace of your children.

In righteousness you will be established.

You will be far from oppression,

For you will not fear,

And you will be far from ruin,

For it will not come near you.

They may gather to attack you, but it will not be from me;

Whoever comes to fight you shall fall because of you.

Behold, it is I who created the smith who blows the coals beneath the forge,

And makes a weapon for his work.

I have also created the ravager to destroy.

No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper,

And you will condemn every tongue that rises against you in judgment.

This is the heritage of God’s servants, and their due reward from Me,

Says God.”

Rosh Chodesh Elul is almost upon us. This an important moment in the coming of the Messiah, and the shifting of the world consciousness that has already begun. On this 3321st anniversary of Moses’ re-ascension of Mt Sinai to bring back the second set of tablets, as the Shofar sounds we must begin our work of tshuva, and go back into time, back into our hearts to remove all the blockages that is keeping the awe in our heads, and that is keeping us from expressing the unconditional love that is at the basis of our souls, and thus keeping us from knowing the certainty that comes from being One with G-d.

We have much work to do, but a glorious future to embrace. Now is the time to give thanks.
With love,
Ezra
