The Ten Commandments Part V: Where are You, God?

Some Got it, Most Didn’t; Will We?

…Continued from The Ten Commandments

In the previous installments we spoke of the first 3 words (Exodus 20:2), “I am God, your Lord,” of the 10 Commandments and how they connect with the Torah’s first verse and how they contain the entirety of the 10 Commandments’ power and structure.

Just to add to what’s been discussed already,  we note that we can break down (ENCY YHVH ELHYC) into the symmetrical phrase (EYC YHVH NHL EYC), which numerically is (31 + 111 + 31) and while 31 is the numerical value of El (G-d) and Lo, (LE), meaning “don’t,” used so often throughout the 173 words of the 10 Commandments.  Meanwhile 111 is the value of the letter alef (E), the permuted phrase could translate to “Where are you? G-d, our guide, Where are You?”

Some of the Israelites reached Keter, and the Tree-of-life represented by alef, which when broken down (Yud-Vav-Vav-Yud) has the numerical value of 32 and thus is our physical symbol of the 32 Paths of Wisdom that are the 32 connections (energy centers and channels) of the 10 sefirot (dimensions) that comprise the Tree-of-life. One of the interesting things about the structure of the letter alef (Yud-Vav-Vav-Yud) is that the upper Yud-Vav component when spelled out equals 42 numerically, as does the lower Yud-Vav component when spelled out equal 42. Thus the letter Alef, all on its own represents the complete union of the upper and lower 42-letter Names, which chazal has explained together translate to Pad (84), redemption.  It’s no wonder that the Alef represents the Tree-of-life, which according to R’ Chaim Vital of blessed memory in his book, New Writings, is really 42 and connected to the 42 Letter Name, because the 32 Paths are added to the 10 sefirot (dimensions). This is also why there are 42 letters in the names of the sefirot.

Most did not, and asked “Where are you? G-d, our guide, Where are You?”

They could see the words but not beyond them. We have to do everything we can to see beyond them, past the barriers of our own illusions, our own limitations.

Like the first 3 words of this first verse that significantly have 13 letters that correspond to the 13 verses of the Ten Commandments, the last 2 words of the verse m’bet avadim, have 9 letters corresponding to the 9 paragraphs: (MBYT ABDYM), “from the house of slavery.”

So let’s examine those 2 words, which were last used in the Torah during the killing of the first born, the 10th plague, whose initials were MB. These 2 words (MBYT ABDYM) begin with Mem-Bet and Ayin-Bet respectively, as in the 42-Letter Name and the 72 Names, which are the keys to freedom hidden within the doorways to the house of slavery.

Some found these keys, most didn’t.

Those that didn’t weren’t really ready, even after everything they had seen. They still weren’t ready to let go completely.

When we unlock the MB and AB in (MBYT ABDYM) we’re left with 5 letters that total 1024, as in the numbers of word values in the Torah, precisely 210, or 32 x 32. Moreover, concealed within teh word for slavery (ABDYM) are the initials of Mashiach Ben David, and what’s left is the Hebrew word  Yi (AY), meaning “debris, ruins.” Two clear choices.

When faced with a revelation of light, we can choose to embrace it, or to embrace our doubts instead.  Most people choose the comfort of their doubts, and the company of their peers.

And while the numerical value of MBYT is 452, so is the number of times that the value 86, that of Elohim appears in the Torah, 452 times.  It’s noteworthy that found Elohim appears in both the Torah’s first verse and the 10 Utterances introductory verse (Exodus 20:1), both of whichare comprised of 7 words and 28 letters.

Meanwhile, the value of (MBYT ABDYM), “From the house of slavery” is 578, a possible allusion to the year prophesied  5778.

The connection to Elohim is understandable, considering that this Name (aspect of) G-d, was found 32 of those times in Creation, the first chapter of the Torah, which of course, means that the value 86 is found 32 times the story of creation and 420 times in the rest of the Torah. Things that make you go hmm!

Moreover, the value 86, that of Elohim, is found a total of 62 times through the completion of the 10 generations of Adam in chapter 5, analogis to the 62 letter Yuds of numerical value 10 within the 620 letters of the 10 Commandments.

There’s not much room for coincidence here. Nor room for error, as the window to the Tree-of-life opens for the 3rd time, the last time being 3330 years ago.

As one would imagine there’s so much concealed information and guidance jam-packed into these 620 letters that it becomes tedious to try to maneuver through it all. So we’ll stop here and continue in our next posts, where we’ll explain what everything in the previous articles were hinting at: what happened at Mt Sinai; what were the two paths in the Torah that followed; and what’s hidden in plain sight within the 10 Commandments that describes what the next few years will bring.

The implications for us today are extraordinarily profound, which is why all this tedious background enlightenment into the workings and encodings of the Ten Commandments (Utterances) and to its connection to the whole Torah were necessary. The Torah must be seen as a whole, and the 10 Utterances as a special moment or window in time if we are to welcome the next cosmic opening.

…to be continued shortly.

The previous installments of The Ten Commandments are here.

Amazing Unifications

I was studying the Arizal’s explanations on the 3rd of the 10 plagues last night, Lice (Kinim) of numerical value 120, when it occurred to me that the 50 letters in the 3 iterations of the spelled-out Name of G0d, Adonai, associated with the malchut level total 2608, which is 120 more than 2488, the year Moses died at the age of 120 and when the Israelites entered the Promised Land.

But Adonai is the pronounceable aspect of G-d’s Name, YHVH, which is associated with Zeir Anpin. Together Adonai (EDNY) and YHVH form a powerful unification YEHDVNHY equivalent to 91, the value of Amen, and we know from the Arizal that we should meditate on this unification whenever we say Amen in order to complete the connection of the 7 sefirot (dimensions) between Malchut and Zeir Anpin This helps elevate the blessing that was recited, and in so doing we procure for ourselves all the same benefits as the person who made the blessing.  Some chazal say we get even more benefit than the person reciting the blessing because we plugged it into the outlet.  And in these difficult days, the very least we should be doing is helping one another by saying Amen and making the unification (YEHDVNHY) in our minds.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve witnessed easy easy missed opportunities for people to help one another and help themselves by simply saying amen. It starts with the little things, with consciousness and compassion, and spreads to reveal Moshiach and a new reality beyond all the veils of illusion.

But this was an aside, what had really occurred to me was that when we unify the 50 letters of the 3 iterations of Adonai (EDNY) with the 42-Letters of the 3 iterations of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) we get 2608 + 50 + 708 + 42 = 3408 and 3408 was the year the Second Temple was Built.

First of all, we should note for those that noticed it, that the 42-letters of YHVH do indeed comprise the upper Shem Mem-Bet, or upper 42-Letter Name and that when we recite the Ana B’koach and take an action to manifest what we’re meditating on the two 42-Letter Names unite on our behalf. (See The Genesis Prayer for how to use the Names/meditations properly) Furthermore, according to chazal it’s this unification of 42 + 42 = 84 that create Pad (PD), redemption of gematria value 84.

Now, as readers of The Divine Calendar know, nearly all the significant dates of the Bible and Biblical events end in the number 8 so it’s interesting that 3408 results from the unification of the two very important Names of G-d and that they both also end in 8: 2608 and 708, and that 3408 is 800 more than 2608. Moreover, if we remove the 8’s, we’re left with the numbers 26, 70, and 340. The number 26 is always representative of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH), and 340 is the value for the word Shem (Name) and 70 couldn’t be more integral to the Divine calendar.

The number 70 is more than just the 70 members of Jacob’s family who entered Egypt, or the 70 members of the Sanhedrin, and it’s more than 70 years that Adam and the Patriarchs gave to King David so that he’d live for 70 years and that the midpoint of his life in 2889 would mark the midpoint of G-d timetable from Adam to 5778, when the tzaddikim (righteous souls) have advised Mashiach (Messiah) and the geula (final redemption) will occur.

To begin to understand the simple complexity and divine beauty in G-d timetable, we need to note that when we square 5778, we get 3338… and the First Temple was destroyed in 3338 HC, and while the Second Temple was built in 3408 HC as noted above, there are 34083338, or 70 years between the destruction of the First Temple and the building of the Second Temple.  These 70 years comprise the Exile in Babylon that was ended by Ezra, The Scribe, who returned the Jews to Israel and who arranged for the Second Temple to be built. These 70 years also compare to the date 70 CE when the Second Temple was actually destroyed and to the numerical value for the word “seventy” (70), which is 422, as in the 422 years that the Second Temple stood, and moreover the date 422 BCE when the First Temple was destroyed.

Take a moment to reflect on that. There’s no mathematical slight of hand that could line up these dates or lengths of times; this is just the way history played out.  And it’s meant to create awe in us.

We need not fear G-d and suffer the 10 plagues again, not even lice,  if we can summon the awe of G-d that the Israelites had in 2448, which is 3330 or 66.6 jubilee (50-year intervals) years ago when in paragraph 42 of the Book of Names (Exodus) they sang out in praise to G-d for their deliverance from Exile.

“…and the people were in awe of God. They believed in God and in his servant Moses.”

That all it takes for us to exit the exile and enter the tree-of-life reality: To be in awe of G-d, believe in G-d (with certainty in our hearts and minds), and in his servant Moses/Moshe (Moshaich). Amen!
