Abraham and the Planet Jupiter; Foretelling the Final Redemption.

Abraham’s journey began with the planet Jupiter; so did ours.  Who knew it would take so long? Regarding our last post on Jupiter and the 40 Days and 40 Nights, David wrote into me with a great insight:

How can we connect this to the fact that Avraham’s astrological array was Jupiter and Hashem moved it from east to west so that it doesnt influence Avraham’s ability to have children? seemingly this means that all his descendants are also under Jupiter’s astrological sign and affected by it.

source Shabbos 156B ““Who awakened Jupiter from the east?”

To understand this you must begin with Shabbos 156A, nevertheless, the Gemara connects that moment when G-d had Abraham gaze up into the stars to Abraham’s age (70) at the Covenant of Halves which occurred in 2018 HC, and this is especially noteworthy given that 2018 CE is 5778 HC, which as per the referenced article just published is the date revealed by both Jupiter’s orbit, the Sun’s temperature and the phrase “40 days and 40 nights,” 5-778.

And more so given that the exact Torah phrase used for “70 years (VShBAYM ShN-H)” has the same exact gematria as the “40 days and 40 nights” or “778 plus the final Hey(5) of Malchut” just like Jupiter’s orbit.

The real significance though is that Israel will be 70 years a nation in 5778 (2018 CE), just as Abraham was 70 years old in 2018 HC. And according to Rav Ashlag (HaSulam) the Covenant will then be fulfilled, coinciding with the Zohar that also enlightens us to that 70 year period prior to the final redemption.

One reference to this is found in Zohar Mishpatim (Ra’aya Meheimna-the deepest secrets section)17, 473-475, regarding “the 70 words in the psalm: ‘May Hashem hear you in the day of trouble (Tehilim 20:2), ” Rav Ashlag explains that this alludes to the 70 sounds made by the expectant mother about to give birth, “being also the 70 sounds given out by the Schechinah for the distress of the children of Yisrael prior to redemption-considered ‘a day of trouble’.” The Zohar intimating a conversation between Moses and Elijah, continues, “Why does She cry out? It is known that among Yisrael there are masters of Torah and kings from the aspect of the star of dawn, namely the Shechinah. There are two grads: morning and dawn, about which it is said: ‘at Your right hand are pleasure evermore (Netzach)” [Tehilim 16:11]. The morning of Abraham, Chesed, appears on the Day of Redemption. But the dawn precedes the Day of Redemption, being Netzach, as the Shechinah from this aspect is called ‘the star  of dawn’.”

In the next paragraph, the Zohar continues explaining, “Hence the chief musician [lamenatzeach] is spelled Netzach [forever] and Lamed-Mem [70], which are the 70 sounds that the doe  [star] of dawn cries out for her children when the darkness of exile overcomes them, the darkness of dawn taking place in the last 70 years. At that time will be fulfilled in Yisrael: ‘Like a woman with child, that draws near the time of delivery, is in pain, and cries out in her pangs; so have we been in your sight, Hashem’ [Yeshayah 26:17]…”

“..The morning alludes to the right hand of Abraham, Messiah, Son of David, who stems from Judah [Yehudah] about whom it is written, ‘Judah is a lion’s whelp’ [Bereshit 49:9]. For this reason, ‘as Hashem lives: lie down until the morning’. [Ruth 3:13].

The Zohar, as always is very deep and cryptic though we can’t miss the obvious allusions that the last 70 years will be painful and include all the birth pangs of Moshiach. So it’s interesting that of the 42 times (Yes, 42 as in the 42-Letter Name, the understanding of which chazal will bring about the final redemption) the 778 plus hey (5) phrase is used in the Torah, the first time is in conjunction with 70 years in Genesis 5:31 with Lemekh(LMC)–kabbalistic code for king(melech, MLC)–who lived for 777 years. And notice that Lemekh(LMC) begins with the Lamed-Mem that the Zohar was referring to above.

And it’s even more significant that the next time it was used was in paragraph 42, Genesis 12:4, when Abraham was 70 years and 5, which is what the Gemara was referring to, in 2018 HC.

As my son pointed out to me at breakfast this morning, Jupiter’s days are 10 hrs long, a possible connection to the 10 sefirot of the Tree-of-life.  What the full connection to Jupiter is yet to be seen, but as the 70 supernal ministers are removed above, so are their respective counterparts in the nations below, and so far since the start of this year 1/1/11, Lebanon, Tunisia, Egypt have fallen, and Jordan, Yemen and Afghanistan are in the process. The prophecies of the Zohar and tzaddikim are being fulfilled.

When the Torah connects the dots, it does it for a reason, and not an insignificant one.  Over the next few weeks we’ll be unraveling more of these trails.

The Hidden Columns of The Torah

I know we were going to discuss Jacob’s prophetic vision, but while perusing a Mashiach blog, a pearl about Jacob’s family entering Egypt and Tehilim (Psalms) that enticed me to look closer at the first verse from the VaYigash paragraphs we had just been studying in their connection to the Israelite soul root and to the chariot from Ezekiel‘s prophetic vision:

Bereshit (Genesis) 46:8

ואלה שמות בני ישראל הבאים מצרימה  “And these are the names of the sons of Israel who are coming into Egypt…”

It just so happens that the 6 initials of this phrase, the phrase that initiates the exile in Egypt (Goshen) and the beginning of the fulfillment of G-d’s Covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob are the very same letters that appear at the head of the 6 of the 248 columns of the Torah that are not the letter Vav (V):

B’YH ShMV

In other words, of the 248 columns of the Torah, all but six (6) columns begin with the level Vav(V), itself of numerical value 6, representing the standard level of the Torah, Zeir Anpin.  These special 6 letters, beginning with the first letter of the Torah, the Bet(B) of Bereshit,  are our connection to the higher sefira (dimension) of Binah (Understanding).

According to chazal, they spell out the phrase, B’YH ShMV, “In the Name of G-d (YH) and they have the numerical value of 363, that of H’Moshiach (The Messiah), and also of “Moses Lives (Moshe Chai)”.

Then, oddly enough, the exact phrase is repeated again in the first verse of Shmot (Exodus) 1:1. And since the letter Vav(V) is the one distinguished by these two very special phrases, it’s notable that there are 778 Vavs in the Torah separating the two verses (from Genesis 46:8- Exodus 1:1).

It’s notable because H’Moshiach is supposed to arrival, according to the tzaddikim in the year 5778, which is 222 years before the 6th millennium. And those 778 Vavs have a total value of 4668, which is 1110 or 10 x 111 (the numerical value of the first letter Alef), less than 5778.

778 x 6 = 5778 – 111 x 10

As explained in prior articles, Alef is representative of the Tree-of-life and whenever any Torah numbers are in multiples of 10, it’s also a reference to the 10 sefirot (dimensions) of the Tree-of-life.

So obviously this phrase is very telling. It’s the beginning of the Israelite Journey. And like all Torah journeys, it’s connected to the 42-Letter Name of G-d.

So it’s not surprising that the first word of this key phrase has the numerical value 42 and that the second word is Shmot (Names), as in the 42-Letter Name of G-d, the understanding of which chazal has said will be what brings about H’Mashiach and the geula (Final redemption), or the end of days as some like to call it.  We prefer to think of it as a new beginning, the time when the 10 Sefirot (dimensions) of the Tree-of-Life become a reality for us.

And just in case we were to doubt that these two identical verses aren’t supposed to be linked together, we should note that the total gematria of both phrases together with their ordinal values is 4240 or 10 times 424, the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David.

424 x 10

But there’s more to these verses than just setting our course for receiving Moshiach Ben David in 5778.  The Torah’s depth and technology is infinite and the deeper we probe, the more we align ourselves with the Tree-of-life reality.

Bereshit 46:8 continues: “And these are the names of the sons of Israel who are coming into Egypt: Jacob and his sons. Reuben was Jacob’s first born.”

Simple enough, except that the Torah slipped in the word first-born (Becor, BCR) except that BRC is the root of merkava, MRCBH, which as we’ve discussed (VaYigash) is both the chariot that Joseph harassed to meet his father and complete the Tree-of-life and the one Ezekiel saw in his famous prophetic vision. We’ll explain, or rather let the Arizal explain this in a moment, but first we want to draw the parallel, to occurrence 54 paragraphs later, of the 10th plague, the killing of the first born.

This is far from coincidental as there are 54 letters in both the phrases cited above and because as we know 54 x 107 = 5778, which is not an arbitrary equation because all the integers through 107 also = 5778.

Moreover, the Torah immediately goes on to tell us that “Reuben sons were Chanoch..,” as in the 7th Man in the lineage of Adam, Chanoch(Enoch), who chazal has explained became the archangel Metatron, the angel in Ezekiel’s vision.

In our next post, we’ll be further discussing the word (root) BCR (Becor) and it’s important connection to Jacob’s prophecies and his lap (knees), BRCY, and also to the root of all blessing, BRC, as in Baruch (BRVC), etc, but right now, let’s see what the Arizal has to say about the killing of the first born of Egypt and the final plague:

“The initials of these three sefirotketer, reishit chochma, bina – spell the word for “firstborn” [in Hebrew, “bechorBCR]. This is similar to what is explained in the Zohar (Tikunei Zohar 70, pg.119b) regarding the word for “blessed” [in Hebrew, “baruch“] and the name of the River Kevar.”

The Ari is saying that these three letters (energy sources) when taken together connect to the top 3 sefirot: Keter, Chochma, and Binah.

He continues, “Chochma is referred to as “reishit chochma” (“the beginning of wisdom”) based on Psalms 111:10: “The beginning of wisdom is the fear of G-d.” Also, chochma is the first conscious sefira, and is therefore known as “the beginning”.

Please note that Wisdom is connected to 111:10 and as we saw earlier these two verses were also connected to 111 x 10. This is Wisdom, not coincidence. And likewise the Ari is connecting Chochma (numerical value 73) with reishit, the beginning, partially because the numerical value of the Torah’s 1st verse is equivalent to all the integers through 73.

And if you don’t think these 2 verses, including the very first verse of Shmot (Exodus) don’t hark back to the seed of the Torah–it’s very first word, please take note that the 6 letters word Bereshit (“In the Beginning”) itself (BREShYT) are found in each of the 6 words of these prophetic phrases.

ואלה שמות בני ישראל הבאים מצרימה

ETBShYR = BREShYT

Now we can understand why the equation alluded to by the phrase above  6000 -222 = 5778 is significant, because 222 is the numerical value not only of 2 x 111 (alef) but of BCR, the root of all blessing and the chariot that will take us there.

In Exodus 1:1 “And these are the names of the sons of Israel who are coming into Egypt…” the word used is Haba’im, meaning literally”the ones coming.” The first time the Torah dictated this phrase it made sense, but the second time it did not, since they were already in Egypt, which means the Torah must have been alluding to the future exile, which in turn means it was written for us, so that we could deal with the exile, and know our time to exodus from it.  The gates are opening.

Just to be thorough, we’d like to point out that the simple numerical value of both phrases together including the kolel for the the 27 identical letters is 3695 and the simple numerical value of the rest of that first verse (Genesis 46:8) is 2083, so combined they equal 3695+2083 = 5778.

“Joseph harnessed his chariot and went up to meet his father Israel in Goshen.” (Gen. 46:29)

From the Zohar Rabbi Yitzchak began his discourse, citing the verse “There was a likeness of an expanse above the heads of the Chaya, like the color of the awesome ice, spread out above their heads from above” (Ezekiel 1:22).”

The numerical value of Chayot, the animating forces, of the Chariot is 424, so the 2 phrase that sum to 4240, or 10 x 424, take us deeper into the vision of Ezekiel and closer to the Tree-of-life.

The secrets are all in the letters; the path is through the letters.  Th numbers help guide us, but the 27 Hebrew letters are the key. Let wisdom be our guide.

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
