Purim, Removing the Masks, Part I: New Revelations from the Beginning


It is said that Purim will be the only holiday that we’ll celebrate after the final redemption, but if all the holidays are based on cosmic windows, what separates Purim in the grand scheme of cosmic time? There is obviously some special connection between Purim and the times of Moshiach or the sages wouldn’t have made this special distinction.  We read about Purim in the Book of Ester so that’s where we must search for the answer.
It’s known that the Book of Esther is all about concealment, which is why we celebrate it with a costume party, but like the Torah there are layers of concealment.  The Name of G-d isn’t overtly mentioned in the Book of Ester, but it is found numerous times as the initials of phrases, often as permuted versions (ie YHVH, YHHV, VHYH). The Name Ehyeh (EHYH) is also found in the same manner, as are triplets of the 42-Letter Name and the 72 Names of G-d , but these are all relatively easy to find.
As we are so close to the time of Moshiach and the end of the 70 year period from the foundation of the State of Israel, we should be able to dig deeper, we sho9uld be able to reveal even more.  After all, the Book of Ester, marked the final years of the 70-year Babylonia exile.
It’s OK to get happy and a little inebriated on Purim in order to shed your mask and reveal the inner light within you, but the Baal Shem Tov and his students got drunk on Torah on Purim and so must we if we want to reveal the inner light within the holiday, the light of Moshiach (the Messiah) and Creation.
The story begins by telling us King Ahasuerus, who ruled over 127 provinces, displayed his wealth for 180 + 7 days for a total of 187 days.
Queen Vashti, his wife and equal, held her own party with her 7 maidens for the same final 7 days. On the 7th day, Ahasuerus consulted his 7 chamberlains.
The initials of the first two were Mem and Bet, an obvious allusion to the Shem Mem Bet (42-Letter Name) and also an indication that a journey would begin, as all Torah journeys begin with the Mem-Bet. The total value of their initials is 73, the numerical value of the sefira(dimension) of Chochma (wisdom), associated with both the 42-Letter Name and the Torah’s first verse, of 7 words, whose numerical value is 2701, which is also the sum of all the integers through 73.
Please keep in mind that at the heart of the Book of Ester is about removing Amalek (kabbalistic code for doubts) from our lives in order to bring about Mashiach, the geula (final redemption) and the Tree-0f-life reality, so just in case skepticism were to creep in and ruin it for us, the Book of Ester made certain we wouldn’t miss the connection to Chochma. The ordinal value of Chochma (CChMH) is 37, which is also the ordinal value of the initials of the 7 chamberlains (MBEBEZC).  Moreover, 37 x 73, the inner and surrounding light of Chochma equals 2701.
And as if that weren’t enough to grab our attention the last two chamberlain “Zether and Carcus” add up to 913, the same as the Torah’s first word, bereshit.
Oh, and by the way, those 187 days of display are analogous to the 187 chapters in the Torah, as are the 5 Parts of the Book of Esther analogous to the 5 Books of the Torah.
While the sages tell us Queen Ester was an incarnation of Sarah, the Matriarch, who live 127 years, 127 is also the number of ways any 7 items can be permuted, such as the 7 words in the Torah’s first verse, the 7 lines in the 42-Letter Name matrix, or the 7 dimensions (sefirot) in Zeir Apin, the ladder between Heaven and Earth to which both of them are associated.
We’re only at the 10th verse of the first of 10 chapters in the Book of Esther, an oft overlooked part except to the kabbalists, yet the 10 chapters in themselves is a hint that the Book of Esther may be about the necessary rectification of the 10 sefirot that comprise the Tree-of-life.
This 10th verse begins with  “On the 7th day, when the Kings heart was merry with wine” but let’s break that down, the 7th day is analogous to Shabbat, the 7th and final day of creation and “the King” to Hashem (G-d), and k’tov (was merry) has the numerical value of 37 once again and literally say was good, so the inner light of wisdom was good–the timing was right. The heart of the king (LV-HMLC) has the numerical value 127 once again, indicating that the timing was right to bridge the gap between Heaven and Earth, and with wine (B’YYN) can be understood as “in 70“. Thus the story is really telling us that in 70 years, the timing will be right for the re-establishment of the Tree-of-life reality, just as it was right for Ezra to bring the Israelites home from Persia after their 70 years of exile.
If you like how the Book of Ester’s revelations have begun you’ll love how it ends. In the next installment, we’ll reveal how the Hamelehk (The King) and the names of the other characters in the Purim story all reveal the same date for Moshiach’s manifestation.
Stay tuned for Part II

  1. Please, allow me a longer remark on this beautiful and imporant article:
    The Beginning of the Sohar:
    “1. Rabbi Chizkiyah opened the discussion with the verse, “As the lily amongst the thorns” (Shir Hashirim 2:2). HE ASKS: What is the lily? AND HE REPLIES: It is the Community of Yisrael (Israel), WHICH IS MALCHUT. Because there is a lily; and there is a lily. Just as the lily among the thorns is tinged with red and white, so is the Community of Yisrael affected by the qualities of judgment and mercy. Just as the lily has thirteen petals, so the Community of Yisrael is surrounded by the thirteen attributes of Mercy. Thus, between the first mention of the name Elohim, WHICH APPEARS IN THE PASSAGE, “IN THE BEGINNING ELOHIM CREATED” (BERESHEET 1:1) TO THE SECOND MENTION OF ELOHIM, THERE ARE THIRTEEN WORDS IN THE VERSE, WHICH TRANSLATE AS “THE, HEAVEN, AND THE, EARTH, AND THE EARTH, WAS, WITHOUT FORM, AND VOID, AND DARKNESS, WAS UPON, THE FACE, OF THE DEEP, AND THE SPIRIT” (IBID. 2). These words surround and guard the Community of Yisrael.
    2. After this, THE NAME ELOHIM is mentioned another time in the passage “ELOHIM MOVED UPON” (BERESHEET 1:2). And why is it mentioned again? In order to bring out the five rigid leaves that surround the lily. And these five LEAVES represent the five gates of salvation. And this secret is written about in the verse, “I will raise the cup of salvation” (Tehilim 116:13). This is the ‘cup of benediction’ that is raised after the meal. The cup of benediction must rest on five fingers, and no more, just as the lily rests on five rigid leaves that represent the five fingers. And this lily is the cup of benediction. FROM THE second to the third mention of the NAME Elohim, there are five words, WHICH TRANSLATE AS “MOVED, OVER, THE SURFACE, OF THE WATERS, AND SAID.” AND THESE WORDS PARALLEL THE FIVE LEAVES. From this point, THE VERSE CONTINUES, “ELOHIM SAID…LET THERE BE LIGHT” (Beresheet 1:3). After this light was created, it was concealed and enclosed within that Brit (covenant) that entered the lily and fructified it. This is referred to as “a tree bearing fruit whose seed is within it” (Ibid. 11) and this seed is the Brit.
    3. And just as the Brit is sown by forty-two matings from that same seed, so the engraved and holy name is sown by the forty-two letters that describe the act of creation.”
    Let´s have therefore a look on “Shushan Purim”:
    “Later that evening, Ahasuerus and Haman attend Esther’s second banquet, at which she reveals that she is Jewish and that Haman is planning to exterminate her people, which includes her. Ahasuerus instead orders Haman hanged on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. The previous decree against the Jews could not be annulled, so the King allows Mordecai and Esther to write another decree as they wish. They write one that allows the Jews to defend themselves during attacks. As a result, on 13 Adar, five hundred attackers and Haman’s ten sons are killed in Shushan. Throughout the empire 75,000 of the Jews’ enemies are killed (Esther 9:16). On the 14th, another 300 are killed in Shushan. No spoils are taken” (Wiki)
    I believe, that the true name of the Moshiach (358) is Sushan (656). This is similar to the Greek Gematria of Messias = 656 (40,5.200,200,10,1,200).
    Daniel lies in Susa in his tomb. Here, in this famous town of the lily, the Jews overcame their enemies. They should be all killed by order from Haman, but Esther saved them. She is like the Morning-Star, a Venus, astronomical full of 5, 8 and 13, a symbol (Shushan) for the love and hidden actions of G-d to his chosen people.
    656 is Shushan, the Lotos (Chariot of God), it means Lily-Rose-Lily for the 6-5-6 leafs of those flowers and the 2 colours: red and white.
    It is possibly a mirror between Mikroprosopos as 565 and Malchut as 656, together 1221, meaning ABBA. (Makroprosopos).
    The flood was 1-656.
    Purim, is 80-6-200-10-600 (or 40), that is 896 or 336.
    896 = 16 x 56 or 1656 the Flood or 1-656 G-d-Shushan. (Cleaning and Victory)
    336 days in a moonyear of 354 days one can see the moon. 18 days not.
    This year Purim was on 19. March, the most beautyful fullmoon since long times.
    I think, that Susa in Iran could be again a concrete part of the Geula.
    It is a miracle. Megillat Esther—literally, “revelation of [that which is] hidden”

  2. What does “Sushan” mean ? and wouldn’t Moshiach’s name be David? I find your theories very interesting as I have read material about the Hasidic Jews like the Baal Shem Tov.
    When does Moshiachs coming refer to? his birth or his arrival on the world stage? as everyone is predicting a time frame. I have always been drawn to Kabbalah and especially attracted to the mystical Jews who have revelations from God.
