Reflections of the Reflecting Pool.

It came to my attention this week that the giant Reflecting Pool that lies in the central axis between the Washington Monument and the Capital Building is 2300 x 150 feet. At first I dismissed it, even as they pointed out that 2300 x 150 = 345,000 sq ft and that 345 is numerical value of Moses. But on further reflection, I realized that 2300 = 20 x 115 and as we’ve been discussing in the last few articles, the value 20 is synonymous with the highest, crowning sefira (dimension) of Keter, and 115 is the number of jubilee years (Biblical 50-year interval) from Adam to the prophecies of Mashiach (the Messiah) in our generation, specifically 5778 (2018 CE).

Still, I didn’t consider it worth mentioning until I further realized that 2300  + 150 = 2450, and by removing the kolel of 2, we get 2448, as in the year of the exodus from Egypt and the reception of the Torah at Sinai in 2448 HC. Moreover, both 2448 and 2450 equal 49 jubilee years, which we know from the sages correspond with the 49 gates of negativity that the Israelites were at before they crossed the Red (Reed) Sea.

Now, the Torah commands us emphatically to count jubilee years and this connection between the measurements of the Reflection Pool and to both times that the window to the Tree-of-Life reality is said to have opened and is predicted to open again is a little suspicious.  Even more so, when we consider that there are exactly 66.6 jubilee years between those 2 dates and that the Washington Monument is 6660 inches tall.

Nevertheless, I held off writing about this until in a dream last night I saw in a straight line, just as it’s actually laid out, the 541 room Capital Building, the Washington Monument (the giant Egyptian Obelisk) and the 2300 foot long Reflecting Pool just beyond it. It dawned on me then that the US Capital was purposefully designed to reflect these aspects of the Exodus from Egypt across the red sea in 2448 HC, to the Promised Land, Israel, whose numerical value is 541, and who is symbolically represented by the Star of David (Magen David), a symmetrical 12-gonal star that is mathematical comprised of 541 points.

But Why?

The Monument is Giving Up its Secrets!

There’s more to the Washington Monument than we first revealed, but more important is what it connects us to as a metaphor: the central axis of the Tree-of-Life; the 42-Letter Sword of Moses; the 10 Commandments; and even Joseph’s Pyramid and the Future Holy Temple. It’s not as odd as it sounds and we’ll explain all these concepts and we promise we’ll then segue into them in subsequent articles with much fuller explanations.

Since the Monument was built to resemble a giant Egyptian obelisk dedicated to the sun, let’s start with the word Cap, as in capstone, which is spelled (C-P). As per the Arizal, the letters CP are two of the revolving 7-letter sequence that connects to the energy of and spiritually controls the influence of the 7 planets CPRTBGD; they are the first two when it comes to controlling the Sun, whose surface temperature as we’ve previously noted is 5778 K.

Here is a secret about the letter Caf (CP). While its numerical value sofit is 820, the same as the all-important phrase at Vayikra 19:18, paraphrased as “Love thy neighbor as thyself,” Caf (CP)’s ordinal value is 28, making its’ complete value (820+28) = 848, or 2 x 424, the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David (the Messiah).

Nevertheless, besides representing Keter(CTR), the crowning sefira and besides also representing the Sun, as explained by Abraham, the Patriarch in his Book the Sefer Yetzira,” , the letter Caf (C) when spelled out (CP) also spells out the word for palm, as in the palm of our hands.

Thus our 2 palms obviously connect with the two 424’s, but they also connect with our 10 fingers, 5 on one side, 5 on the other, like the 10 sefirot, 10 Commandments on the 2 tablets, and like Abraham’s description, “5 on one side, 5 on the other, cleaved down the middle.” And the reason this is so significant will become clear once we examine why the 4 bases of the Washington Monument all had to be 55’ long.

Meanwhile, the Zohar supports this revelation in that in portion Ekev it states emphatically that the palms connect to the 14 joints of the fingers and that there are 28 joints in both hands, which is the numerical value of Koach, power.

Like the weight of the aluminum capstone at the tip of the Washington Monument (6.25 lbs) the ratio of its capstone (pyramidian) height to its base is also 34.45/55.125 ft = .625, reinforcing the image of the capstone pyramid as “H’Keter (the Crown)” of numerical value 625. It also connects it the Torah, whose square root of its total number of words, verses, and letters is exactly 625.

Just in case you think the Masons accidentally hit upon this ratio, please note that the ratio of the bases of the entire Monument to that of the capstone are also 34.45/55.125 ft = .625,

Another very significant and telling ratio chosen by the Monument’s architects is given by the Monument’s height to its base is 555/55.5 ft = 10 for a ratio of 10 to 1, or inversely 1 ft of width for every 10 of height, a very steep angle indeed.  More significant than its angle of inclination is its similarity of structure to another Keter that involves 10: The 10 Commandments.

The 10 Commandments (Utterances) found in the 13 verses of chapter 20 (the numerical value of the Hebrew letter Caf) of Exodus consist of exactly 620 letters, the numerical value of the word Keter and of the Hebrew word for 20 (Esrim), an obvious allusion to the point the Israelites had reached as they were being offered the Tree-of-Life reality. Nevertheless, the similarity in structure is delineated by the 62 letter Yuds (of numerical value 10 each)­­—the first letter of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH)—for a total of 620 (Keter once again), meaning that 1 in 10 of every letter in the 10 Commandments is the letter Yud(Y) of numerical value 10.

Like the 2 palms and the 2 sets of Tablets given to Moses, there are 2 recitals of the 10 Commandments in the Torah, for a total of 20, one in Exodus and the other in Deuteronomy. While the first has 620 letters, the second has 708 letters, with 708 being the numerical value of the Upper 42-Letter Name (the 42 letters of the 3 iterations of the spelled out Tetragrammaton (YHVH). We only bring up the 42 Letters because there are 42 Letters in the names of the 11 sefirot of the Tree-of-Life, the central column of which the Washington Monument may be a metaphor.

And between the 2 recitals there are 130 Yuds(Y) with 130 being the numerical value for Sinai and for (Sulam) ladder. And while some say that 708 relates to 5778 and 5708, the year Israel received statehood (70 years before 5778 as prophesied in the Zohar 2000 years ago, there is a less subtle connection between 5778 and the 10 Commandments. The first set, found at Exodus 20:2 is located exactly at the 107007th letter in the Torah or the 107000th letter from the word Bereshit (“In the Beginning”), and 5778 is the exact sum of all the positive integers from 1 to 107.  This obviously can’t be coincidental, and as divine confirmation the first 2 words of these 10 Commandments “Anochi YHVH (I am G-d)” have the exact numerical value 107, and they contain the first 2 Yuds(Y) of the 62, back-to-back right in their middle (ENCY YHVH). Moreover, these 2 words (I am G-d) have an ordinal value of 62.

And by the way, the last word in the 10 Commandments has the newly revealed gematria sofit sofit value of 820, the same as Caf (CG) and of the singular Torah verse of unconditional love, as mentioned above.

Thus the Monument can also be seen as a giant letter Vav(V), which in Hebrew is a vertical line, capped by the Hebrew letter Caf (C) and as any Kabbalist knows CV of numerical value 26 represents The Tetragrammaton (YHVH), the ineffable Name of G-d associated with the 6 sefirot (dimensions) bundled together and called Zeir Anpin, metaphorically the vertical pipeline from our world into the upper spiritual (Heavenly) one.

And speaking of metaphors, while the Washington Monument is found at the edge of the reflecting pool at NW 15th street, the 42-letters Sword of Moses is found right after the crossing of the Red Sea (Yam Suf or End Sea) at paragraph 42 of the Book of Shmot, Exodus 15:11.  Appropriately enough, the sword is tipped with the word and letter Alef, which is shaped like a X comprised of 4 component letter, 2 of which are the letter Yud(Y). If you look upon the monument as a 4-sided sword, you’ll see the X formed by the 4 angles at the top.

There is one more monumental connection to make, of which there is no doubt the Masons were aware, for, you see, the entrance to the Great Pyramid (referred to as Joseph’s pyramid in the series of articles we began late last year and hope to continue with soon as a prelude to The Future Holy Temple) is 55 ft off the ground, and that pyramid too had a special capstone high atop of it. Furthermore, the ratio of the height of the Washington Monument to the Great Pyramid is precisely 15/13 or 1.1538 as in the 115 jubilee years from Adam to the year prophesied for the 3rd opportunity of the Tree-of-Life reality, 5778.

And if you don’t think the architects of the Monument had some inkling as to what they were connecting to, please note that the perimeter of the capstone is 137 ft and 137 is the well-known numerical value of Kabbalah. Moreover, Moreover, the Base of the Great Pyramid is 13.7 times that of the Washington Monument, a giant Egyptian Obelisk. Furthermore, the resultant diagonals of the capstone are 77.85 (NE-SW) and 78 (NW-SE).

Moreover, the dimension 55 ft (5 on one side, 5 on the other, cleaved down the middle) hides the secret of the ancient cubit needed for the building of the Future Holy Temple, and 555 of those cubits equals 1271, the year the Zohar mysteriously reappeared in Spain.

And the Future Holy Temple will be 100 of Caf (CP) cubits high, once again connecting with Keter and that Capstone.

Nevertheless, 555 ft = 242.18 cubits, and since the year 5778 HC is also the year 2018 CE, this year of prophesy is exactly 242 years after the founding of the United States of America in 1776.

Food for thought.

In the coming weeks we’ll be exploring in depth the various avenues brought about from the various metaphors and connections laid out above.

We Were Told to Count to 50!

We were told to count to 50, yet every year we count to 49, and let G-d count the 50th day for us? But that’s not what we were told to do.
As an adjunct to our last Article on the splitting of the Torah at Bamidbar (Numbers) Chapter 1 into the precise Phi proportions and to the connection to the year 5778 (2018 CE), we’d like to add a secret about the 12 tribes, actually 13, listed in the 54 verses of Bamidbar chapter 1. They appear to be listed haphazardly, but that is anything from the truth. The sages and the Zohar tell us that they are listed in a specific in order for us to connect through them to the stars and to destiny, but there is a deeper, never been reveled secret about them as well.

The 13 initials in there order of appearance are R for Reuben, then Sh for Shimon, then G for Gad, then Y for Yehuda, then Y for Issacar, then Tz for Tzebelun, then E for Ephraim, then M for Menash, then B for Benjamin, then D for Dan, then E for Asher, then N for Naphtali, then finally L for Levi.

As you may have noticed the initials M-B as in the 42-Letter Name (MB Shemot) appears in the middle of them, the Name the sages have said is necessary for bringing about the Geula (final redemption), but what the true secret is that that the first 11 Names add up to 577 and the final 2 to 80, a well-conceived allusion to 5778-0, especially considering that the prior two portions in the Torah had 57-78 verse respectively.

They are further arranged so that the 6 tribes numbered 4 through 9 would add up to 70, as in the 70 Nations, the 70 years of King David, and the last 70 years from when Israel became a Nation in 5708 HC.

In his commentaries on this portion (Bamidbar) the Arizal discusses the reason that the Levites were counted from age 30 and everyone else from age 20. In essence, it is because the Levites represent the left side of the Tree-of-Life, the side of Gevurah, which is comprised of the 5 crowns (or proto Gevurah) within the sefira (dimension) of Da’at; the 5 midot (emotional expressions) of Gevurah within Zeir Anpin that are the dimensions of Chesed, Gevurah, Tiferet, Netzach and Hod; and the 5 manifesting stages of Gevurah within the dimension of Yesod, for a total of 15. Since there are male and female aspects to each, the total is 15 plus 15 or 30. 30 is also the numerical value for the letter Lamed (L), the initial of the tribe of Levi.

Not coincidentally, Lamed is one of the two central letters of the Hebrew alef-bet, the other being Caf (C), nor is it coincidental that that complete numerical value (standard plus ordinal) is 42; or that the complete value of Caf(C)is 31, that of El (G-d); or that the complete value of Caf-Lamed (CL), spelling Kol, meaning “All (everyone)”, is 73, the same as Chochma (wisdom). And using a little known, but highly revelatory form of ancient gematria we see at the essence of the letters Caf-Lamed (CL): (42 x 31)/(42+31) = 26.04, the sum of the 4 letters of the Tetragreammatom (YHVH), which oddly enough is the same as 2 x (42 x 31), which is also = 2604, further emphasizing this important connection.

The Beginning

Nevertheless, the letter Lamed(L) as seen from above starts out as a point, becomes a straight line and spirals into a circle, a metaphor for the formation of the universe as described in Rav Ashlag’s Ten Luminous Emanations. It’s one of two letters that spiral; the other being the letter Pe(P), and as we’re told by Abraham, The Patriarch in his Sefer Yetzirah (The Book of Formation) these are the two letters (PL) that control (have dominion over) the month of Tishrei, which begins with Rosh HaShannah. This is also why the sequence of the counting of the tribes begins with the word for counting (Pekudaihem) and ends with Levi, thus (PL).

Now, the letter (P) forms a more natural recognizable spiral, and thus is associated with the spiraling numerical constant Phi, as opposed to the Letter (L), which is associated with the mathematical constant Pi, as would be appropriate for a line becoming a circle.

What bother these letters also have in common is that they are both composed of the letters Caf (C) and Vav(V) as in (CV), representing the number 26, associated with the Tetragrammaton (YHVH). Nevertheless, it’s their association together within the letter Alef (ELP) that is significant to our discussion. The letter Alef (E), as prototypical energy, existed before the Torah and thus physical existence began and it was comprised of an upper and lower Yud(Y) with two Vavs(V) splitting apart the two Yuds (Y). It was from the lower Yud (Y) that a sea of energy emanated and formed the skeletal structure of out universe, and within that sea were the mathematical constants Pi and Phi (represented by L and P)to guide the currents of physicality. Thus was completed the Alef (ELP) prior to the Bet (B) of the Torah.

We spoke earlier of the 15 aspects of Gevurah (the filter of judgment) represented by the Lamed(L), but there are also 15 aspects of Chesed (loving kindness) to balance them out, making 30 aspects in total, which happens to be the ordinal value of E-L-P (the letter Alef spelled out). Now the letter Alef, (E) has a letter value 1 and the spelled out letter’s numerical value is 111, or Oneness in every sense of the word. And from that oneness came everything (kol).

In this portion of Bamidbar, Moses counted all the Israelites over the age of 20 except the Levites, which he counted over the age of 30, together they represented 20+30 or Caf(C) plus Lamed (L) making CL (kol), everyone. And 20+30 = 50, as in the 50 days which we were told by G-d to count in preparation for receiving the Torah in marriage every year at Shavuot. This is just as it was when the 600,000 Israelites counted the 50 days in the desert (bamidbar) from the crossing of the “End Sea” (Yam Suf) to the reception of the 10 Commandments and the Tree-of-life reality (10 sefirot/dimensional existence beyond physicality) at Mt Sinai.

Of course, 600/50 = 12, as in the 12 Tribes that Moses was counting.

And if you recall, Pharaoh sent and lost at sea his 600 choice chariots (governing angels) in that same sea crossing, so it’s not coincidental that 20 x 30 = 600 or that “sea” (YM) has a numerical value of 50. Nor is it coincidental that the Torah mentions the exodus 50 times יציאת מצרים, which literally means going out of the “straits of the sea” מצר ים.

A Deeper Code

A clue to the depth of the Torah encoding is further found within the word which we broke down above “straits of the sea” מצר ים, since two of the first three letters (Resh-Zaddi) represent the central core (heart) of the 42-Letter Name Matrix and the third letter Mem (numerical value 40) represents the rest of the 40 letters. This was in the same was that CL was at the core/heart of the alef-bet. And since we know from the sages and tzaddikim, including the Baal Shem Tov of blessed memory that the 42-Letter Name represents not only the 42 journeys that the Israelites made in the desert (BMDBR) but the 42 journeys we much make in life and the 42 journeys of our soul on the way to redemption, we may infer that going out of the “straits of the sea” מצר ים is also exiting through the 42-Letter Name.

Counting 50

As discussed in previous articles, the Torah repeatedly insists that we count the 50-year jubilee cycle and first tells us to do so in the first chapter of the Behar-Bechukatai 57-78 connection. Nowadays, because there is no Temple, we pretty much ignore that command. Are we making a mistake?

Should we be counting 50?

Yitro (Jethro), whose gematria value is 616, the same as “The Torah,” told Moses how to manage his 600,000 Israelites, which was an allusion to how the universe is managed from above. He told him that Moses should put leaders and sub-leaders over 1000’s, 100’s, 50’s and 10’s? Thousands, hundreds and tens is logical and is more than suggestive of how the 10 sefirot are divided and subdivided by 10’s, but why subdivide by 50 as well?

It doesn’t make sense to have someone over essentially only two people (100/50) so there must be a secret in here, a hidden message Yitro was conveying to Moses, especially since it was conveyed to Moses moments (Torah time) before receiving the 10 Commandments.

The full answer to the meaning of counting 50 lies in the spiritual dimensions of time and space itself, but there are some simpler ones that we can grasp. For instance, if we count the jubilee years (50-year intervals) from the birth of Adam to the midpoint of the 70-year life of King David (2854 HC – 2924) we get precisely 57.78 jubilee years. And from that pivotal midpoint (2889 HC) to the year 5778 HC, when the Geula is prophesized to occur, we get another 57.78 jubilee years.

Of course, 2889 HC is exactly 441 years after the Torah was received on Mt Sinai in 2448 HC and 441 is the numerical value of Emet (Truth) and 212.

And of course there are 66.6 jubilee years from 2448 to 5778 and 66.6 jubilee years from Adam to the destruction of the First Holy Temple in 3338. But all this can be found in The Divine Calendar, except this new tidbit that there are 325,077.8 sidereal days in the 17.8 jubilee years from 2448 HC to 3338 HC.

This doesn’t answer the question why we should count 50; that deeper meaning, whose answer lies in the 32 sides of the 5th dimensional hypercube, will take time to explain. But our time already seems to be marked, whether it’s the temperature of the surface of the Sun, 5778 K or 57.78 jubilee years, the year 5778 (2018 CE) is hurtling towards us. This is also why that first chapter in Bamidbar that split the Torah into the Phi proportion has 54 verses (like the 54 portions in the Torah and the 54 special letters in the Torah) because the sum of the positive integers through 107 is 5778 and 107 x 54 = 5778, and Phi18 = 5778.000

It’s been said by the sages that the Israelites, stuck in Egypt (MZR YM), were at the 49th gate of negativity and counting by 50 we see that in 2448 HC they were also in the 49th Jubilee year from Adam. It’s also been said that if we reach the Tree-of-Life reality, we will have reached the 50th Gate of Binah. Now that’s something worth counting.

Physical Coincidence

It’s probably just coincidental also that Euler’s Constant is .577215… and that when we use Euler’s Number, noted as ℮ (2.7182818…), which is the base of the natural logarithmic scale, in the equation ℮*Pi√Phi we get 5.277845, which one could argue is not 5.778 and they’d be right, but there are also 5845 verses in the Torah, as in 5.277845.

Of course, counting is just math and math is just at the core of physics, so when we ignore God’s Commandments in the Torah we are ignoring physics, not escaping them, as we would be in the Tree-of-Life reality.

The “Book of the Wars of the Lord.”

A lot happened in Parsha Chukath, and it all has to do with the so-called end of days, the next 9 years.

Right after G-d tells Aaron and Moses about using the Red Heifer for cleansing, Miriam dies in Parsha Chukath in the beginning of chapter 20, the 137th chapter in the Torah. We know that the 137th chapter is significant because 137 is the value of Kabbalah “to receive,” and since 137 is 1/73, the value of Chochma (wisdom), it means “to receive wisdom.”

And with Miriam’s passing, so vanishes the well that sustained the Israelites in the desert, which results in Numbers (Bamidbar) 20:08 G-d revealing to Moses and Aaron how to get water from the cliff (rock). He gave Moses a staff (rod) and told them to speak to the rock. Instead, Moses struck the rock twice and water gushed forward. But because he didn’t speak to the rock as instructed, neither Moses nor Aaron was allowed to enter Israel, which prevented the Tree-of-Life from taking root there. In verse 20:09, Moses picks up the staff and begins the process that ends with G-d saying in verse 20:12, “You did not have enough faith in me.”

The Israelites were in the 40th and final year of their journey from exile to the Promised Land, in Kadesh at the time, the 33rd place of the 42 journeys that took them from exile to freedom. Kadesh, whose numerical value is 404, has a square root of 20.09… and the total numerical value of all those 33 places is exactly 15,000, with 9 more journeys to make in that final year.

After the incident with the water, the Israelites request that Edom allow them to pass through using the King’s highway and they were denied, so the Torah dizzily takes us through the final 9 places, skirting Edom, and through the battles the Israelites fought and won. These were part of the “Book of the Wars of the Lord,” and they highlighted the defeats of the King Sichon, and his city of Chesbon in particular, and of King Og. The action was interrupted to recite the Song of the Well, and the Song of Cheshbon.

Just before the battles with Sichon, after Aaron dies and after they defeated the Canaanites, doubts overtook the Israelites in the final moments, just as it happened at Mt Sinai. The first time, G-d withdrew the tree-of-life and immortality from them, and this time He sent them venomous snakes. G-d then gave Moses the antidote, a copper snake that drew the judgment out of them when they gazed upon it. We know that both the snake and Moshiach have the same gematria and that they are opposite sides of the same coin. Thus when the evil inclination overtook them, G-d let them taste the tree-of-knowledge of good and evil, so that they could once again appreciate the tree-of-life and know the difference.

So lets see what’s really going on here. The numerical value of “speak to the rock” is 848 or 2 x 424, the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David, which may explain help to why Moses struck the rock 2 times. Another reason has to do with Adam eating from the tree-of-knowledge twice, and the 2 times Moses had to carry down the tablets, as will be come more apparent later in this article.

For some reason square roots play a big part in understanding this portion, and thus we find that 8.48 is the square root of 72, as in the 72 Names (Triplets) utilized in splitting the Red Sea (Sea of Reeds) and derived from the 3 verses of 72 letters that describe that splitting. Since Moses staff played a part then too, and both incidents concern water, this connection to the 72 Names is probably meritorious and the Names were probably used here as well. What’s more, as this entire portion is about the final years leading up to the geula and to Moshiach, the 72 Names will probably play a part then as well.

In preparation for understanding this portion we should also note that the numerical value for the phrase used in the Torah “Water from the rock” (Ma’im Min Hselah) is 345, the same as “Moshe” (Moses).

One major hint as to what is going on in this portion is that the gematria sofit (final) value of Sichon (SYChN) is 778 as in 5778, suggesting that the battle-filled 9 final journeys of the Israelites final year might indeed refer to the 9 final years from 2009 – 2018 (5778 HC). And strengthening that line of thought is the structure of the word Cheshon (ChShBVN), where Sichon is found, in which we have the numerical value of Chet (Ch) being 8 and the other 4 letters being 358, that of the word Mashiach (Messiah). Keep in mind that according to the tzaddikim, the figurative brit (milah) of Moshiach will take place in 5778, after 8 years, in the same way that a brit milah occurs for a baby boy after 8 days.

The portion begins oddly as well, and we know that any oddities in the Torah were purposely included to draw the attention of the tzaddikim and the Torah scholars. After the usual “G-d spoke to” the Torah says “that the following is declared to be the Torah’s decree as commanded by God,” which in Hebrew is Zot Chukat H’Torah Asher Zah YHVH L’Emor Daber (TzET ChKT HTVRH EshR ZVH YHVH), or 2160 in total numerical value, and 2160 is 10 times the value of the word for awe (216), the necessary attribute for reaching the Tree-of-life. Moreover, we know that whenever anything in Torah is exactly 10 times a known numerical value, it usually means that it is inclusive of all 10 sefirot (dimensions). In this case, it is also not coincidentally 10 times the numerical value of the sefirot of Gevura, representing spiritual judgment, and of the 216 letters in the 72 Names (Triplets) of G-d.

The word, Zot, of numerical value 408, according to the Zohar is a reference to the time of Mashiach, and also refers specifically to the 408 letters missing from the 600,000 composite letters in the entire Torah (599,692). The value 408 is also .666 of 612, the value of the word Brit, Covenant, as in G-d’s Covenant with Abraham that took place in 21018 HC.

The word, Chukath, is composed of ChK and T, employing that same KCh, of numerical value 108, as the word for “take” in the phrase “Take the staff (rod),” used to channel the water. 108 is also the numerical value of the “golden calf,” the second sin—Adam’s was the first—to cause Man to lose the Tree-of-life reality. And just to be clear, 108 is also 2 x 54, the numerical value of the “staff” that Moses used to strike the rock, and since “water from the rock” is and allusion Moses (345), he struck himself (and Aaron).

Reading of The Divine Calendar know the extreme significance of the number 8 in terms of Biblical dates and the timing for the arrival of the Moshiach, but the letter Chet, of numerical value 8, when spelled out without the yud, has the spelled-out word value of 408, as in Zot. Moreover, using that particular spelling, the spelled out value of the 3 letters in the word Chukat (ChKT) is exactly 1000, an allusion to the crowning and highest sefira (dimension) of keter, and also to the completion of the Tree-of-Life in that all 1000 = 103 meaning all 10 dimensions are completed within the perfectly balanced 3 column structure of the universe.

Nevertheless, the first 4 words of this odd phrase, “that the following is declared to be the Torah’s decree,” add up to 2019, when the kolel for the letters is subtracted, and 2019 is the first year that the tree-of-life reality is supposed to be in effect. This interpretation is strengthened by the presence of the word Zot that begin the phrase, and whose square root is 20.19

Now, the next four words of the odd phrase can be split into 2 pairs, TzET ChKT and HTVRH Esh. The second pair can be read as Rosh H’Torah (Head of the Torah), and the numerical value of the first pair, TzET ChKT, is 916, that of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, the author of the Zohar, which together makes a powerful statement whose timing was concealed within the gematria and purpose was signaled by the cryptic word Zot.

Now, as for the “Book of the Wars of the Lord” which is Hebrew is B’Sefer Milchamot Hashem (BSPR MLChMT YHVH), while the first 7 letters total 420 in value, the first of the 3 words, B’sefer, has an ordinal value of 54, same as the value of the rod.

And as we’ve discussed in previous articles 54 is not only the timing frequency (54 beats/minute) that the human brain functions at, but it is the measure of the double cycle of the 27 Hebrew letters and moreover it solves for the equation 107 x 54 = 5778, where the sum of the positive integers through 107 also equals 5778.

The numerical value of the “Book of the Wars of the Lord” (BSPR MLChMT YHVH) is split into the first 2 words of numerical value 860 (or 10 x 86, the value of the Name of G-d that reflects spiritual judgment, Elohim) and the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) of numerical value 26. Together they add up to 886, plus a kolel of 2, which gives us a value of 888, recalling what we said about the number 8.

And if you doubt the connection, please note that the sun of the values of the spelled out letters plus their kolel in the word Moshiach (MshYCh) is 888.

Observing the letters in the “Book of the Wars of the Lord” (BSPR MLChMT YHVH) we see that there are 13 letters centered on the central letter Chet, once again. And adding the 1st and last letters, and working inward to the central (Chet), then summing their square roots give us 66.652, as in the 66.6 jubilees years (Biblical mandated 50 year intervals) from the reception of the Torah in 2448 HC, when we last stood at the foot of the Tree-of-life to 5778: (BH, SV, PH, RY, MT, LM, and Ch)

The 52 in 66.652 can signify the level of the Tetragrammaton known as Ban, and referred to as Malchut, the bottommost dimension of manifestation. 52 is also the numerical; value of the phrase’s initials (BMY), which can also stand for the 42-Letters of the Name of G-d.

If we peel off the letters of each word, starting with their initial we get BMY, etc we’re left with 4 triplets and the letter Tav (T), which as the last letter in the alef-bet indicates finality and the level of malchut. Then if we add up the square roots of each of these 4 triplets we get 42.3 plus .1 for the kolel and we get 424, the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David: (BMY, SLH, PChV, RMH and T)

How do we know to permute the letters in this fashion? Because we are told by Rav Ashlag that in the Zohar Shlach Lecha #289, the Mashiach, as did Daniel, permuted the famous letters in Daniel 5:25 MENE MENE TEKEL UFARSHIN in just the same way. “G-d has numbered the days of your kingdom and brought it to the end…”

Whether we divide the letters in pairs of triplets, the two letters left out Chet and Tav, interestingly enough for the letter Chet (ChT) once again, or numerical value 408.

As for the initials of B’Sefer Milchamot Hashem (BSPR MLChMT YHVH), they connect to phrase recited during the highpoint of the Amidah prayer connection Baruch Cavod YHVH Mimkomo (G-d is in his Everlasting Place), whose initials are BCYM, and also to the 42-Letter Sword of Moses hidden within the Song of the Sea, whose initials also begin Mi Camoka Belim YHVH (MCBY), recited just before the Amidah. That these initials sum up to 72 is significant as the two tools necessary to fight these wars will be the 42-Letter name and the 72 Names (Triplets). In case you are wondering the Caf is the complimentary letter to the Tav (T) in Milchamot.

The wars described in the final journeys of the Israelites will be repeated in one form or another within the next 9 years, and the torah is warning us as to what will happen. As hinted at in the name of King Og (AVG), the last 9 years of the final 70—Ayin(A) has a numerical value of 70—will be split into two parts, the 3 years—Gimmel(G) has a value of 3—and the final 6 years—Vav(V) has the value of 6. This means that for 2009 there will be a break at 2012, probably when Amalek (doubts) take hold in earnest after the Mayan illusion, and the wars will continue for 6 more through 2018. Recall that it was in verse 20:12 that G-d says, “You did not have enough faith in me.”

Regarding those doubts, the last time we stood to receive the Tree-of-life, the Israelites weren’t able to wait the final 6 hours for Moses to return from upon Mt Sinai with the two tablets of the Torah of Moshiach and receive immortality. And in Chukath, we see again that they couldn’t wait until the final end of the 40 years in the desert before complaining, and yearning to return to Egypt.

Doubts were always their downfall and have always been ours. While the Israelites defeated the Canaanites and the Amorites, they never defeated the Amalekites, who kabbalistically represent their doubts because the Hebrew word for doubt (Sofek) and Amalek have the same numerical value. And this is the greatest war of all, for it will determine who receives the geula (final redemption) and who reaches the tree-of-life, and conversely, who stays behind again in the world of the tree-of-knowledge of good and evil.

According to the Baal Shem Tov, the spiritual significance of the red heifer that begins this portion is to help us cleanse ourselves of our ego, which is at the root of our doubts, and which we know will be all the more important for us to do as the days of the final redemption approach over the next 9 years.
