The Secret in the Song; The Secret of Moshiach.

In the 40th verse of the 32nd chapter of Devarim we have an oft overlooked statement by Moses
in the middle of the all-important Song of Moses that holds one of the most important secrets of the Torah.

The Zohar goes on and on about the connection between this 32nd chapter (parsha Ha’Azinu) that’s shaped like the Magen David and the 32 Paths of Wisdom, in other words the Tree-of-Life. The Zohar also tells us elsewhere that Moses reincarnates every generation and brings us the spirit of Moshiach each time. We’ve written earlier about how Moshe and Adam (and many other tzaddikim) both knew when Moshiach was supposed to arrive.

The Arizal tells us that David was an incarnation of Adam in the triad (ADM: Adam-David-Mashiach) and we’ve written about how the midpoint of David’s life (2889 HC) marked the midpoint in the Divine Calendar that is punctuated with the arrival of Moshiach and the geula (final redemption) in 5778 (2018 CE) as advised to us by Rav Yehuda Halevi Ashlag (HaSulam), 7 years from now.

And as Rav Brandwein points out, 78 is (Ayin-Chet), the initials of AZ ChYYM (the Tree-of-Life) that is prophesied to manifest for us in 5778, as the Zohar says 70 years after the formation of the state of Israel in 5708.  Please note that this divine manifestation in 5778 is just a powerful window of opportunity and not a foregone conclusion; we must earn it.
Now, as for that little phrase mentioned by Moses, the one that contains one of the deepest secrets of the Torah, it begins with “For I lift up my hand to Heaven, and say,” and follows with “Chi Anochi L’Olam (ChY ENCY LALM),” meaning “As I live forever.” People miss this extremely significant detail because they assume Moses is speaking for G-d, but why would G-d in Heaven raise his Hand to Heaven?

What is this like? It’s like when Moses held up his hand to empower the Israelites to defeat the Amalekites. The Torah tells us as long as Moses hand (was) is raised the Israelites would win; when it wasn’t Amalek, the Kabbalistic code word for “doubt” of the same numerical value, would win.

Whoever was talking for Whom, Moses was and is the channel, our channel. And if his hand remains up in the end of days, we win, triumphing over our doubts so as to experience the Tree-of-life reality. Both related verses are followed by verses describing the use of the Sword (Charev) of Moses (details for another day) and both verse end similarly but with an all-important disctiction. The verse at Devarim 32:40 ends in forever (LALM), while the verse at Exodus 17:11 ends in Amalek (AMLK). The difference between them is that the Hebrew letter Lamed extends upward toward Heaven and the Hebrew letter Koof descends.  Numerically their difference is 70 in standard gematria, and 7 in ordinal value, 77 altogether. The choice is pretty clear: we support Moses and keep his hands held high as the Israelites did during their earlier battle, or we don’t. The Torah goes on to warn us that “G-d shall be at war with Amalek for all generations,’ meaning, we shall face our doubts until the very end.

While the initials of verse 32:40 (ChEL) sum to 39, as in tal, the dew that will resurrect the dry bones at the end of days, an over simplification of a topic that the tzaddikim have filled volumes on, it’s the final letters and the complete gematria of the 3 words that tell the full story.
As Chazal explains, the final letters of a Torah phrase refer to the future and if so, the future this phrase points to is Keter, the highest crowning sefira (dimension). The final letters sum to 620 (Keter), just as there are 620 letters in the 10 Commandments, which was the last time Moses brought us to the summit of the Tree-of-Life reality, 3330 years ago (66.6 jubilee years).
But it’s the full 3 words that explain it all. Most of our readers already know the equation 54 x 107 = 5778 and significance of 54 being the timing rhythm our brains operate on etc., and also that the sum of all the integers though 107 is 5778 in the same way that the sum of all the integers through 73 (Chochma/Wisdom) is 2701, the numerical value of the Torah’s first verse. To those readers it will be all the more significant that the ordinal value of “As I Live (ChY ENCY)” is 54 and that of “As I Live forever (ChY ENCY  LALM) is 107; nevertheless, to everyone it should be relevant that the complete gematria of the phrase Sung by Moses to the Israelites in the 5792 verse of the Torah is 376, that of Shalom (Peace).
Moreover, the 7 Yuds in the full verse represent the 70 years that Adam gave to King David, and also of the Zohar’s prophecies for Israel, and also of Abraham’s life prior to his receiving G-d’s Covenant for Israel in 2018 HC, and thus we see that the 7 remaining years to 5778 represent the final tenth (or tithe, 7/70) of the 70 final years until 2018 CE (5778 HC), so let us overcome our doubts, keep Moses hand upraised, so that Moses shall live forever and Peace shall be upon us, as the Tree-of-Life once again becomes  a reality for us. As aided and guided by the Torah, lets follow the Lamed of forever and look upward, and not downward along the Koof of Amalek for the remaining 7 of the 70 years.
Why was this revealed in verse 5792 and not 14 verses earlier in verse 5778, who knows? Maybe it’s because 14 is the numerical value of David, or of “Hand (YD),” as in the hand that will be lifted up to Heaven. Or it could simply be that this was the 302107th letter in the Torah.

Or it could be that we are to count this time from the 14th verse in the Torah in which G-d placed the lights in the sky? And the brightest of those physical lights is our Sun, whose surface temperature is undeniably, 5778 K, the only temperature that would sustain life on Earth as we know it.
As for the full verse, its initials sum to 161, as in G-d’s higher Name Ehyeh, and the final letters of the entire verse sum to 376 (peace) yet once again (when the kolel of 1 is subtracted).

And the first 3 words of the verse (Ki EShah El) add up to 363, that of H’Moshiach (the Messiah), just in case we weren’t exactly sure to what or to who the final 3 words were referring  in Moses’ reincarnation.

Finally, the first and last letters of the verse (Caf and Mem sofit) also add up to 620 (Keter). And if we neglect the sofit value they sum to 80, as in the spelled-out value of the letter Mem and as in the 80 times the word Sheva (7) is found in the Torah; it’s also the number of times the numerical value 358, that of Moshiach, is found in the Torah.

Let the Torah be our Guide.

And whether this was intentional or not, the numerical placement of the two verses 2nd Book 17:11 and 5th Book 32:40 add up to 107. Go figure!

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.

Vayikra and all the Secrets of Healing.

The Baal Shem Tov has said that he learned all the secrets of healing though the first verse of this 3rd Book in the Torah, Vayikra. I wish I knew them for I’d surely share them with as many people as I could, but I do understand how he could get them from this verse.

This portion is all about the sacrifice that the Tabernacle priests, (Aaron and his sons) made and should make on our behalf to mitigate and cleanse the guilt of our sins. The portion begins with the 256th paragraph of the Torah, 256 being the numerical value of Aaron, the only person connected with the actual word Moshiach in the entire Torah. And within the first word of the Book Leviticus, Vayikra, is a small (reduced) letter alef, the first letter in the name Aaron, and the first in the Hebrew alphabet.

This is all pertinent to what the Baal Shem Tov of blessed memory learned, because illness is tikune, which means its a form of punishment for some guilt, some transgression in this or some previous life, and when he healed someone, we was in essence making a spiritual sacrifice on their behalf, much as Aaron and priests did when the Tabernacle and Holy temples existed. That’s why the Torah repeats “He will be forgiven” (V’nislach Lo) at the end of all the sacrifices. When a sin is forgiven there is no longer a reason for punishment, and more often than not the punishment is just a wake up call to make someone aware that they have a sin that needs atoning.

We know that it’s all about the alef, whose spelled out value is 111 because there are 111 verses in this portion and there are no coincidences in the Torah. This letter is the tip of the revolving flaming Sword of Hashem (HShM) that brings judgment and protection of the heavenly secrets with each of the 4 arms of the alef extending along a different blade edge. It’s also the 42-letter Sword of Moses (MShH) that brings wonders (PLE), which is spelled as Alef in reverse with Alef at the tip. But that’s not the source of the secrets.

The numerical value of this small alef (ELP) used as elef (ELP) is 1000. And the rest of the word Vayikra (Called) is 216. Now 216 is Gevurah (the sefira of judgment) where according to the Zohar the voice of the shofar hails from, the voice of the shofar that was mentioned in Exodus (Shmot) 19:19 at the giving of 10 Commandments (Utterances) .

Together the 2 components have a gematria value of 1216 and when we subtract 2 for the kolel we get 1214, which is the exact numerical value of both “70 languages” (ShBAYM LShVNVT), and for “permutation of the letters” (ZYRVP HEVTYVT), which is, according to the Zohar, how all those secrets and much more are revealed.

When you understand the connection that you’re making and are in the right consciousnesses and the letters roll the secrets are revealed. We can explain the connections and thus prime the letters for you, but having the right consciousnesses is an individual choice and is only had by doing your spiritual work.

It’s not coincidental that this portion lies shortly before Pesach (passover) when we must work hard to remove all the chametz (impurities/dirt) from our homes/lives. It’s more than Spring cleaning; it’s digging deep within our souls as we clean to unearth (un-leash from malchut) our klippot (negative husks). Ever try to clean computer cables? That’s what we’re like. Our positively charged souls have this baked on grime clinging to it, that we need to scrape and grind away. And as we do that physically, we need to meditate that we’re doing it from all the difficult parts of our lives. Like the illnesses, the difficulties we’re facing now are there to show us what we need to work on and where to scrape for G-d is merciful and gave us many gifts and tools, as we’ll see below.

As the Book of Vayikra begins it’s the first time G-d is speaking to Moses in the Mishkan (Tabernacle), which is normally shielded from him by a cloud. “God called to Moses, speaking to him.” “Vayikra EL Moshe V’Ydaber Adonai.” All the words are jumbled from the normal order that we’re used to seeing in the Torah.

In our recent article, “Sometimes We Forget” we discussed the verse “G-d spoke to Moses,” “V’Ydaber Adonai El Moshe…(VYDBR YHVH EL MShH)” which is in fact the most numerous verse in the Torah and is found 91 times in the Torah, and as it just so happens this is the 91st chapter in the Torah. Yet here these words are jumbled: “Vayikra EL Moshe V’Ydaber Adonai.”

When things are jumbled they are done so to conceal and when things are concealed they are more powerful and more important to us, which is why the dirt of the surface is easy to find and remove but not so much that in the crevices and beneath tables.

In this case, the jumbling also brought the two letter Alefs in the phrase together, side by side or even superimposed, but what actually happens is that “Vayikra EL” becomes combined and has a numerical value of 248, that of rachem, mercy and also of Abraham, whose name also begins with Alef, not coincidentally. This is the mercy (grace) injected into the judgment to bring the healing.

This also why the jumbled phrase ends with “V’Ydaber Adonai,” also of numerical value (248), that of rachem (mercy/grace).

As previously discussed, 91 is the value of the all-important unification of the YHVH with Adonai (YEHDVNHY), the connection between Zeir Anpin and the Shechina, (the female aspect of G-d that pertains to our world), the very connection that Moses makes for us, the bond between Heaven and Earth, and the connection we should be making in our heads when we say Amen.

So as we’ve seen the jumbled phrase Vayikra EL Moshe V’Ydaber Adonai” is structured as 248, Moses (345), 248, and one could say that it’s Abraham, Moses, Abraham. But it’s also Moses, who is Zeir Anpin, in the middle of 2 x 248 = 496, which is the numerical value of Malchut, and thus the necessary unification of Zeir Anpin and the Shechina, Heaven and Earth in order to bring forgiveness and healing.

The Tabernacle was concealed by the cloud. Moses (Zeir Anpin) was concealed within Malchut. Mercy was concealed within Judgment. The cures were concealed withing the illnesses. And the tiny letter alef was concealed within this phrase. As we prepare for Pesach and Mashiach, let’s dig through the concealment and search out every tiny bit of negativity in our homes, lives, and souls.

Amen

By the way, the tiny alef is the alef of Amen.  The first Book of the Torah has 50 chapters, giving us the letter Nun (N) of numerical value 50. The second Book of the Torah has 40 chapters, giving us the letter Mem (M) of numerical value 40. And a we start the 3rd Book, we begin the 91st chapter with the tiny Alef (E) of numerical value 1, completing the backwards (concealed) word NME or EMN (Amen), of numerical value 91, the tip of the sword.

So say Amen and mean it.

“Song of the Well” from which we Draw the Light

…continued from the “Song of the Sea” at Shmot 15:1-21, paragraph 42, where we discussed the connection of the flowing Light to water, the mikve concept, the name Ehyeh and the 42-Letter Name of G-d, all their conjoined connections to H’Moshiach (the Messiah), and also the importance of joyful singing in appreciation of Hashem.

The next song sung in the Bible is also about water. It is the “Song at the Well” found at Bamidbar 21:17-20, and not coincidentally we find that the first well drank from in the Torah is found at Bereshit 21:17-20, when G-d gives Hagar and young Ishmael relief and offers to make him a mighty nation. This cannot be a coincidence, but the difference was Hagar and Ishmael didn’t give thanks. Yet G-d kept his promise and made him a mighty nation, a nation of unquenchable thirst.

And neither can the fact that the word well, Ber (BER) is found 22 times in the Torah, an indication of the flow of light through the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet, and that all the permutations of Ber, such as in the Torah’s 2nd word, Barah (BRE) add up to 28, the same total number of time2 the word “river” is used in the Torah.

Well and River?

Wells are dug. Rivers flow down from the mountains. The rivers refer to the flow of Light from the upper rivers above, while the wells are the vessels, recipients of this flow, which is why Abraham and the Patriarchs were always digging wells, to prepare our vessels for the Light. This is also why Miriam, a female, was in charge of the well. She was a natural vessel, while Moses was a natural channel, and more like a river in nature.

The first verse of the Torah also has 28 letters, and of the first 9 of those letters, the permuted BER (well) to BER (to create) was included twice, BRESHYT BRE because it takes two drops from below to cause one to flow down from above, which is also why the Moshiach prophecies are based on 666, or 2/3. We have to move 2/3 of the way ourselves and G-d will do the rest.

And that BER (well) and BER (to create) are spiritually related is easily understood if one sees BER (well) as the feminine principal or vessel, which is what creates, gives birth, or manifests. While a river can flow all day long, the water (or Light) must be drawn into a vessel in order to irrigate and nourish and breed life.

Interestingly enough, those 9 letters, including their ordinal value sum to 1215, and as we discussed in our article on the Shakings of the Lulav, all the diverse elements of the Sukkot holiday add up to 100 (Sach) + 91 (sukkah) + 1024 (4 species) = 1215. There is a reason for 1215, but we wont go into it now, but when we take away 1 for the kolel, and get 1214, much of the technology gets revealed. For example, amongst the 28 letters of the Torah’s first verse, there are 11 unique letter and they also have a complete value (ordinal plus standard gematria) of 1214. Also 1214 is the exact numerical value of “70 languages” (ShBAYM LShVNVT), corresponding to the 70 nations and the 70 faces of the Torah. And furthermore, 1214 is the exact value for the “permutation of the letters” (ZYRVP H’EVTYVT), which the Torah seems to be telling us to do, as did Abraham, the Patriarch, in his Sefer Yetzirah (The Book of Formation).

This helps explains the water connection, “Pouring of the Water” (nisuch hamayim), during and to the holiday of Sukkot. And during the time of teh Holy Temple, “Pouring of the Water” was accompanied by signing and dancing and much celebration, just as it should be, considering the first songs of the Torah are about water, and the flow of the Light.

That the exact word well (Beer, BER), found 22 times in the Torah, is obviously connected with the 22 letters of the Hebrew Alphabet, through which Light flows into our world, but a deep secret revealed in The Genesis Prayer is that the Well of Miriam is located at the very center of 42-Letter Name matrix in the Reish-Zaddi (RZ) pair, at letters #21 and 22 of the 42 letters, at the place also known as the Brit of Mashiach, as discussed in previous blogs. Moreover, the numerical value of the RZ pair is 290, the same as Miriam.  Because of the special properties of the mikve, those concerned about fertility and the conception of righteous children, shold read the special section in The Genesis Prayer regarding the 42-letter Name and this special connection within it.  Many people for many generations including ours have received so-called miracles from it, which we know to be just the tree-of-life reality at work.

…to be continued with the rest of the 10 songs. And we will soon be discussing the “Sword of Michael,” which some say is also the “Sword of Moses,” hidden within the “Song of the Sea.”
