The Land of Moshiach (the Messiah).

In parsha Vayigash, 46:28 it says [Jacob] sent Judah ahead of him to make preparations in Goshen (Goshnah).” Goshen (Goshnah) has the same 4 letters as the Chanukah dreidel, and likewise they add up to 358, the numerical value of Moshiach, the Messiah. This is the area within Egypt (or really outside it) that Joseph arranged for his family and the Israelites to live in exile. The name Goshen (גֹּשְׁנָה Goshnah) is only found twice in the Torah and hints at the two Mashiachs, Mashiach Ben Yosef and Mashiach Ben David, connected to Joseph and Judah respectively. By Joseph reuniting with Jacob, the spirit of Mashiach was restored, and the flow of mazal through Joseph could go to the Israelites, instead of the Egyptians who had been the previous beneficiaries.

The Torah is also telling us that the spirit of Mashiach can be anywhere, even in the darkness of Egypt if we stay connected to the source of the Light, which is a message we need to hear now, more than ever. Nevertheless, with Goshen(גֹּשְׁנָה GShNH), the Torah is also spelling out the travels of the Mishkan (the Tabernacle) and the Ark of the Covenant, whose final home was prepared by King David in the Holy Temple in Jerusalem: G for Givon; Sh for Shilo; and N for Nov.

While, it could be said that 3 letters of the Goshen(גֹּשְׁנָ GShN) adequately represent the 3 locations of the Mishkan, but the H of Goshna (GShNH) could stand for the 5 Books of Moses, since the 4th stop of the Ark of the Covenant was with King David in Jerusalem and King David was born 616 years after Jacob and his family moved to Goshen, and 616 is the numerical value of “H’Torah (the Torah).”

The name Goshen (גֹּשְׁנָה Goshnah) really translates to “toward Goshen” as the Torah is pointing us toward Mashiach. And the dreidel only spells out numerically Mashiach (גֹּשְׁנָה) outside of Israel. Inside Israel the letter Pe, for Po, here, is substituted for the Shin, just as Goshen is also outside Israel, in the land of exile.

The second instance Goshen is spelled (גֹּשְׁנָה Goshnah) is in the mystically important verse Bereshit 46:29 “Joseph harnessed his chariot and he went to greet his father in Goshen.” According to the Zohar, the word for chariot used here is merkava, as in the the chariot, or vehicle of divine revelation, described in Ezekiel’s famous prophetic vision (Ezekiel 1).

The Zohar goes on to explain that what Joseph harnessed was the various levels of his soul and he thus ascended to the level of Zeir Anpin of Atzilut (the highest level) and communed  with the Divine Presence, referred to in the verse as his father, Israel.” In Ezekiel’s vision, He was referred to as “the likeness of a man.”

Obviously, Goshen was a very special place, where the Israelite population would explode from 70 to 600,000 in preparation for the reception of the Torah and the Tree-of-Life and the fulfillment of the Covenant of Abraham (the Covenant of Halves) as God reiterated to Jacob earlier in the portion (Vayigash). With the kolel of 1 the initials of the verse total 107, and as we know, the sum of the integers through 107 is 5778, the year (2018 ce) Rav Ashalag and the tzaddikim prophesied for the final redemption (geula) and Moshiach.

We know the tie in to Moshiach is beyond dispute, but as for the intent to point to 5778 (2018 ce) we need further proof. Mirroring the ascention of Joseph to meet the Divine presence in the first verse of this chapter, “God spoke to Jacob in a night vision and said, “Jacob Jacob.” While the gematria of these double words less the kolel of 1 is 363 that of “H’Mashiach (The Messiah),” what these double words do is connect with the other set of double words, earlier in the portion at Bereshit 44:28: Tarof Toraf (TtRP TtRP).

And the secret of these double words is that they add up to 2018 in gematria sofit or 578 in simple gematria. Now, as regarding the mysterious double words, the Covenant of Halves, and the connection to King David mentioned earlier, half of period from Adam to Moshiach in 5778 is 2889, which is exactly midway through the 70 year life of King David.

To be continued with the the secrets behind the 70 Israelites who moved to Goshen.

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.

The Tabernacle, Creation, and Modern Physics

We know from the Zohar, The Book of Splendor, that the construction of the Tabernacle, Mishkan, is connected to the act of Creation in the first verse of the Torah (Bible).

So let’s examine all that money (metal) collected to built the Tabernacle, Mishkan and see what shakes out.

…….Talents…Shekels

Gold ….29………730

Silver 100…….1775

Bronze 70 ……2400

……….199……4905

Now, it’s relatively easy to see that the 1775 shekels represent and are connected to the 27 letters of the Hebrew alphabet which have a total gematria value of 1775.

Moreover, the 70 talents of Bronze is most probably connected to the 70 Nations, the 70 years, etc, and also the 70 faces of the Torah. And even more so, since the square root of the 4905 shekels is 70.03571 and 3571 is exactly (5778/Phi), or precisely Phi17.

Now, let’s leave the 1775 Silver Shekels out of it for a second since they were for a special counting, and we have 29+100+70+730+2400 = 3329. And since the Torah makes a special point of telling us that the Mishkan was built in the 2nd year of the Exodus, (in 2449), we get 2449 + 3329 = 5778, the year prophesied by the tzaddikim for the arrival of H’Moshiach, the Messiah.

And since a talent = 3000 shekels, we see that there is an extra mixed talent of metal currency that can be separated from the shekels, leaving us with (4905 – 3000) = 1905 and giving us a total of 200 talents and 1905 shekels in all that was contributed to the building of the Tabernacle.

And since we’re looking at the Torah’s first verse, it’s interesting that the 27th letter is Resh (R), of numerical value 200, same as the 200 talents.

Genesis 1:1 BREShYT BRE ELHYM ET HShMYM VET HERZ

And if were to add the 28th letter, Zaddi (Z) of numerical value 90 to 4905, we’d get 90 + 4905 = 4995, which is the gematria sofit value of all 27 letters of the Hebrew Alphabet.

Genesis 1:1 BREShYT BRE ELHYM ET HShMYM VET HERZ

Obviously, the contributions of the Tabernacle are all about the letters (or the light/energy in them).

Is this reaching? You decide since the total value of the verse is 2701, which is equivalent to the sum of all the positive integers through 73, as in the 730 shekels of gold used to built the Tabernacle, and since the square root of 730 is 27.01….

What this also means is that the Torah’s first verse is based on a triangular number, the 73rd triangular number. And we know this isn’t a coincidence because not only is the sum of the first 8 words (33 letters) of the Torah also a triangular number (3003), the 77th in fact, but the 7 words of the Torah’s first verse are comprised of 28 letters and 28 is the 7th triangular number. (For more on this and for a better understanding of the Torah and G-d’s design, see The Genesis Prayer)

So knowing this, if we see which letters correspond to triangular numbers within this first verse, we get:

Genesis 1:1 BREShYT BRE ELHYM ET HShMYM VET HERZ

(BETEEMZ)

These correspond to the 7 triangular numbers: 1, 3, 6, 10, 15, 21, and 28, which collectively add up to 84, or 3 times 28, a sin the 3 metallic elements of the tabernacle, and as in Pad (redemption), the union of the upper and lower 42 Letter names.

And while the sum of the ordinal value of these 7 letters is 78 or 3 x 26, the gematria sofit sum of the 7 letters is 1905 again.

We discussed numerous times the connection between the brain’s natural rhythm/frequency (timing mechanism) of 54 beats per minute and its relationship to 5778 which is 54 x 107 = 5778 with the 107 triangular number being 5778, but we’ve recently learned that 54 is also the complete cycle of the 27 letters with its returning light of 27 letters (more on this soon in another article). And the standard gematria sum of the 7 triangular letters above is 535, which when multiplied with 54 x 2 or 27 x 4 = 57780, two cycles.

And we know that G-d, revealed by the 4 letter Tetragrammaton (YHVH) of numerical value 26 had a hand in in it. So why 1905?

At the age of 26, Albert Einstein experienced his year of miracles (annus mirablis in which he published 4 earth-shattering papers on the physics of the universe that changed the course of history and laid the foundations of quantum physics, introducing the special theory of relativity, explaining Brownian motion and proving the existence of atoms. And it was on 9/27/1905 on the 27th day of Elul that Einstein revealed the world’s most famous equation: E = Mc2

Energy = Mass X the speed of Light (c) squared

The Torah, Tabernacle, Creation, the 27 Letters, triangular numbers, Phi, the brain’s frequency (54 B/Min), the surface temperature of the Sun (5778 K) and a dream that revealed quantum physics. And what runs through them all: The Light of G-d.

The Tabernacle and the Name 42

Have you ever wondered how we know so many of the secrets that you haven’t been able to find elsewhere? Ask yourself where we started our journey?

In this week’s Torah portion (Pekudei), referring to the redemption, the Tabernacle, H’Miskan (HMShCN) was built and there’s lots to say about that, but for now we’ll be brief.  Like so much more in the Torah, it connects to Creation itself and to the very first verse of the Torah, and that verse is derived from  the  42-Letter Name (Ana B’koach) .

As these excerpts from Zohar (The Book of Splendor) explain, it was only through the letters of the 42-Letter name that the Mishkan was built, and only because Moses possessed the 173Keys (the 42 Letter Name, of small gematria 173) that he was able to erect it.  But first, did you notice that the first 3 letters of H’Miskan (HMShCN) spelled out Moshe (MShH)

Zohar Pekudei 272. “This is the mystery-why the tabernacle was erected only by Moses, since from that side of Moses (Zeir Anpin), another high grade, Binah bestirred itself to establish the tabernacle, Malchut, so there will be sustenance for all. This is the secret of  ‘and Moses erected the Tabernacle’ erecting it by these letters with which heaven and earth were created, referring to the Name of 42.”

Zohar Pekudei 273.

“So Betzalel carried out the work of the Tabernacle using the secret of the engraved letters with which heaven and earth were created, namely the Name 42….Unless he knew them, he could not have dome the work in the Tabernacle. The sense thereof is that as the upper Tabernacle was built, and all its actions done, only by the secret of these letters, of the Name 42, so here is the  Tabernacle below, nothing was built save by the secret of these letters.”

Zohar Pekudei 273.

“Betzalel was combining the letters of the Name 42, and did the various works with different combinations of thereof. He used each combination to do one task, and all that pertains to it.  And so with all the works in the Tabernacle, together with its parts and amendments, he used combinations of the letters of the Holy Name 42.
If the 42-Letter Name could build the Tabernacle, which brought sustenance to the world by uniting the dimensions of Binah and Malchut through Zeir Anin and indeed created heaven and earth, as no less an authority than the Zohar and Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai tell us, then what can the 42-Letter Name do for you?

What can’t it do for you? Are you using it enough? Are you using it to be proactive? (If aren’t familiar enough with it, please read The Genesis Prayer).

Chazal tells us that it’s through the understanding of the 42-Letter Name that the geula (final redemption) will happen.   Considering all that it’s done already, is there any doubt that it can do that as well?

The secrets of the combing of the letters will be revealed over time in this blog.  Some have already been given, some were revealed in he Genesis Prayer.

Everyone’s help is requested in this matter.  If anyone of you is a programmer and would like to help us rewrite the gematria programs to reveal more of the secrets locked in the Torah, please just write in to us.

One of the secrets of this portions was that it took 3 different types of energy to manifest the Tabernacle as reflected in the gold, silver and bronze collected, and that everyone’s money was accepted; the Tabernacle was for everyone present and participating, all 3 million of them.  We’ll save the mathematical explanation of that for another article, but safe to say that if there were 603,550 men, there were a similar number of women and even more children.

Help us to help the world in any way you can; everyone deserves a chance to know about the 42-Letter Name.  The blueprint for the Holy Temple exists; everyone can share in the process.
