The Ancient and Future Cubit Revealed! The Countdown begins…

The ancient and future cubit is the key piece of information missing for the construction of the Third Holy Temple. It’s been known yet concealed for thousands of years, but this year we enter the final 9 years and have the ability to go beyond the 9th level, to past Wisdom (Chochma), the phase that began with the birth of the Arizal, 9/10 of the way from Adam to Moshiach, as advised by Rav Ashlag and other kabbalists of blessed memory (see The Divine Calendar).

Exactly halfway to that point, in 2889 HC, was the midpoint in King David’s life, 57.78 jubilee years after Adam’s creation. A few years later he’d begin planning the construction of the First Holy Temple, which his son, King Solomon would see through to completion.

That Temple didn’t last, neither did the Second Temple, nor were they really supposed to. Man didn’t have the consciousness to maintain their spiritual integrity and thus they physically fell too.

This time the dimensions of the Temple are a little different, they are more in tune with the cosmos, with eternal existence rather than temporal. This time the dimensions will mean more than numbers or blocks of stone in a wall.

“Great will be the glory of this last House” (Hagai 2:9)

The Ramchal, R’ Chaim Luzzatto of blessed memory, explains that Ezekiel saw the Future Temple with a height of 100 cubits, yet the First temple, built by King Solomon, who had wisdom (Chochma) was 120 cubits and 120 is greater than 100. The First temple had an additional floor of 20 cubits, representing Keter, that the Third Temple, which is Keter will not have. or need. Thus the cubit utilized in the Third Temple is a “far” greater one than the one used by Solomon, at least 20% greater, making it at least 20% greater than somewhere between 19.6-22.5 inches–the commonly assumed measure for the cubit.

The Ramchal further explains that the word B-reshit, (literally “2 Beginnings”) ,the Torah’s first word, indicates that there are two beginnings, the one we know, in wisdom (Chochma), and the previous one beyond our comprehension, in Keter. This is indicated by the gematria of the Torah’s first verse of 28 letters, 2701, which is the sum of the positive integers from 1 to 73, with 73 being the numerical value of Chochma (wisdom), the 9th sefira. Also, it should be known that this initial Torah verse stretches and covers all 9 sefirot from Malchut to Chochma in that 2701 plus the kolel of 3 = 52 squared and 52 is the numerical value of the Name of G-d that is in essence Malchut (kingdom), our physical world.

When we enter the time of the Messiah and Future Temple becomes physical, we will be in the time and space frame of Keter, the 10th and ultimate sefira.

The cubit according to tradition was always an approximate measure of a man’s forearm and hand or 5-6 hands widths depending on interpretation, accurate enough for most simple construction I guess, but….

Abraham in his Sefer Yetzirah tells us that the greater universe is constructed with 22 building blocks, and moreover that this construction takes the form of 10 sefirot (dimensions) with 5 on one side, 5 on the other, unified yet cleaved down the middle.

Sefer Yetzirah 1: 2 “Ten Sefirot of Nothingness and 22 Foundation letters” also translated as “Ten counts of Nothingness and 22 building blocks”

Sefer Yetzirah 1: 2 “Ten Sefirot of Nothingness in the number of ten fingers five opposite five with a singular covenant precisely in the middle in the circumcision of the tongue…”

Similarly we find “My left hand has founded the earth and my right hand has spread out the heavens” Isaiah 48:13) giving us again 5 on right, 5 on the left, separated in the middle, just like the Ten Commandments, which represent and parallel the Tree-of-life.

This is an important representation of the structure of the universe because we would assume that the cubit that measured the universe before our time began and that will measure it in a physical sense once the Temple is properly constructed would be one and the same.

And in these and similar passages Abraham clued us into the Holy cubit and the one probably utilized by Solomon.

All this said, please note that the ancient and future cubit is entirely based on the Name of G-d.

The Ramchal explains that the four expansions of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) have such “great holiness [that] their power is limitless. All existence is bound to them from beginning to end.”

Av YVD HY VYV HY of numerical value 72

Sag YVD HY VEV HY of numerical value 63

Mah YVD HE VEV HE of numerical value 45

Ban YVD HH VV HH of numerical value 52

The total value of these 4 names that represent the totality of the 10 sefirot spelled out in 39 letters is 232

232 is “Ad Adi Ad” (AD ADY AD) or “eternity of eternities” as expressed in the Sefer Yetzirah 1:5

And 232 + 39 + 4 = 275.

And since 275/10 sefirot = 27.5 we have the secret measure of the Holy cubit, 27.5 inches, as dictated by the Holy Name of G-d Himself.

And also as hinted at by Abraham in that 5 on one 5 side, 5 unified and on the other split down the middle is a graphic way of illustrating the numerical expression 55/2 = 27.5

Moreover, if Solomon logically utilized 22 inches as the cubit for the construction of the First Temple, anchoring it in the 22 foundation letters (building blocks) of the universe, the future and Holy cubit is exactly 25% larger than Solomons, fulfilling nicely the prophecy of Hagai and the divine analysis of the Ramchal and making the Future Temple 110 inches or 4 Holy cubits (5 Solomon cubits) higher than the First Temple.

Not coincidentally, 110 is the numerical value of Nes (miracle) and the lifespan of Joseph in years.

And for those of you who have read our recent article on the secret meaning of 5 Kings vs 4 Kings in Lech Lecha, please note that the Future cubit is 5/4 the length of Solomon’s cubit because it extends to Keter, where Solomon’s stopped at Wisdom (Chochma), just as the Arizal explained in that there are 5 levels of holiness and only 4 of evil.

Now, we are calling the First Temple cubit, Solomon’s cubit, and we could just have easily referred to it as “the cubit of Wisdom,” but we can’t refer to it as the ancient cubit, because that designation is also bestowed upon our Future cubit, as it’s been utilized before and immortalized in stone, but that explanation, worthy of a book unto itself, will be revealed in our next article.

For now, we want to illustrate how the ancient and future cubit is integrally tied into the concept of 3 and the 3-column 10 dimensional structure that our universe and the Tree-of-Life is designed around.

First, we must note, that all light gets filtered (for lack of a better word) by 10% as it goes from one sefira/dimension (level) to the next and not coincidentally it takes 22 such iterations or diminishings to descend from one sefira to the next in steps of 10%, which is akin to going from one order of magnitude to the next (i.e. 100 to 100, or 10 down to 1)

The number 3 connotes balance, physical and spiritual, and if we where to start with the ancient and future cubit (27.5 inches) and achieve an equilibrium point by adding and subtracting 10% at a time, we’d get

27.5 + 2.75 – .275 + .0275 – .00275 + .000275

and the point in space that this exercise would eventual reach is 30.00000000000000000…, or essentially 3, as 30 is just 3 x 10.

We now can understand why the letter Lamed (L) of numerical value 30 was chosen as the last letter of the Torah. Together with the initial letter Bet (B), they form 32, as in the 32 Paths of Wisdom that comprise the Tree-of-life reality, in other words the 22 building blocks and the 10 sefirot(dimensions), which lies at the Heart (LB) of Holy Temple . And with the initial Bet (B) having one foot in the spiritual world, the initial 28 letters of the Torah’s first verse could be interpreted as 27.5 letters.

The mathematical expression for this convergence is an alternative harmonic series that looks like this, with n representing the amount of iterations or dimensions the light is processed through, going from 1 to infinity, and x being the measure of our cubit in inches:

x + (-1)n+1(x/10n)

n = 1

if x = 27.5 then the summation series converges on 30

if x = 2.75 then the summation series converges on 3.

And thus we see that the length of the future cubit is much more than the length of our forearms and connects us to cosmic proportions that we can only begin to understand. Yet. Yet this time we must understand them, as we are the generation of knowledge and if we are to burst through to the dimension of keter, we’ll need to find the awe with which to do it through our minds. At that point our hearts will be open to receive. We have a lot to overcome, though, as the awe we have for our blackberries, I-Phones, computers and the like is so great. We’ve set our own high hurdles.

In our next article we’ll rewrite history when we reveal how the secret measure of the cubit was cleverly concealed in stone thousands of years ago and available to all who wanted to seek it.

King David and the Messiah

All the new wires are reporting a new archaeological find that will help verify the dates and importance of King David‘s reign. Talmudic scholars already have the dates and know the importance. The Divine Calendar helps explain exactly why Kind David and Solomon were born and died precisely when they did, along with most of the other  prominent  Biblical personages and events.

This excerpt from The Divine Calendar illustrates that point perfectly. There is no doubt to when King David lived or why:

Chapter 21

King David and the Messiah

It’s a Very Divine Plan

King David‘s Birth Marks Israel’s Statehood

T

he year when Israel was declared a State, 5708 HC, is exactly twice, the year that King David was born, or 2 x 2854 HC, and of course, King David is the David referred to in the title, Mashiach Ben David. Pause. With so many dates being hurled at you at the speed of the cosmos, it’s easy to miss very significant events and to pass them off casually. What we’re saying here is that the birth of King David marked the absolute midpoint from Adam (Creation) to the founding of the State of Israel, which only happened as a result of WW II, the Holocaust, guerrilla warfare, a few peoples’ dynamic persona, and a reluctant vote in spite of vehement Arab opposition by a fledgling United Nations. The Nation whose Flag carries the Magen David, the shield of David, officially became a state after thousands of years, on a date precisely double King David‘s birth year.

King David‘s Birth Marks Israel’s Statehood and Abraham’s Birth

Now, since these two dates aren’t linked in any way except divinely, how astonishing is it that 2854 HC is equivalent to 906 BCE and that 2854906 = 1948, the year Israel became a State in the Gregorian calendar. Let’s pause again. Adding those two dates gives us 3760; that happens automatically. There’s no magic there. Once 3760 HC was chose as year “0” or “1” the math will work like that for all the juxtaposed BCE dates. But subtracting them as we’ve just done; there’s no reason whatsoever that they should equate to anything other than pure chance. Now if we’d listed 200 different significant dates on our divine calendar then there would be a 1 in 20 chance of hitting one of them, but we didn’t. We only listed around 10 significant dates in total. And since the date 1948 was not only the year that Abraham was born in the Hebrew Calendar, but the matching Gregorian date to the one we’d just revealed in the equation just before it, the date Israel became a nation, the odds of this happening naturally are staggering. And the chance of any group of men organizing history to fall out this way is nil. There is only way this could happen.

And if all this isn’t sufficiently extraordinary, we must also consider that the year -906 BCE is exactly half of –1812 BCE, which once again is the year Abraham was born, but this time in the Gregorian calendar.

King David was born in 2854 HC

2 x 2854 HC = 5708 HC

Israel Received Statehood in 5708 HC

5708 HC = 1948 CE

2854 HC = 906 BCE

2854906 = 1948

2 x 906 BCE = 1812 BCE

1812 BCE = 1948 BCE

Abraham was born in 1948 BCE

King David‘s Birth and the 42 Letter Name

So it’s probably not a coincidence that 906 is the value of the seventh and final 6 letter sequence “שקו־צית” of the 42-letter Name of G-d, the line which according to the sages is specifically associated with [1]David.

Since, according to the sages of blessed memory, the 42-Letter Name (the Ana B’koach, also knows as the Genesis Prayer) is a ladder to the spiritual world and its 7 lines connecting to and representing the 7 lower sefirot (dimensions), when we factor in their 10 sub-dimensions per line, we see that the 42-Letter Name actually traverses 70 dimensions of time and space and spirit.

So taking all this into account, one may surely conclude that David‘s lifespan of 70 years and Abraham’s age at the time of his Covenant with G-d, also 70 years, are both part of a divine plan in which 70 is added to either 5708 HC and/or 1948 CE to get the year 5778 HC or 2018 CE, respectively, the year that their mutual descendant is predicted to become the Messiah.

King David‘s Life and Death Marked the Arrival of the Messiah

Another very potent way of looking at this is that when we add the year King David was born, 2854, with the year he died, 2924, we get 2854 + 2924 = 5778, the date prophesied by chazal for the Messiah. meaning that the coming of the Messiah, Mashiach Ben David, is completely marked by the life of King David from start to finish, and moreover that it also marks the midpoint from Adam to the Messiah.

King David was born in 2854

King David died in 2924

2854 + 2924 = 5778

King David‘s Life and Death Marked the G-d’s Covenant with Abraham

And if all that isn’t astonishing enough, the year King David was born, 906 BCE, when added to 836 BCE, the year he died, gives us 906 + 836 = 1742 BCE, which is the year the first exile began, the year of the Covenant of Abraham, 2018 HC.

King David was born in 906 BCE

King David died in 836 BCE

906 + 836 = 1742 BCE

1742 BCE = 2018 HC

King David‘s Life and Death Marked the Destruction of the Second Temple

Furthermore, if we take 906 BCE, the year King David was born in the Gregorian calendar, plus 2924, the year he died in the Hebrew calendar, we get 906 + 2924 = 3830, once and yet again the year the Second Temple was destroyed. And this destruction marked the beginning of the final exile, which is supposed to last 1948 years, the same amount of time the world had to wait for Abraham to come into it.

King David was born in 906 BCE

King David died in 2924 HC

906 + 2924 = 3830 HC

The Second Temple was Destroyed in 3830 HC

article excerpted from the NY Times, Oct 30, 2008

“KHIRBET QEIYAFA, Israel — Overlooking the verdant Valley of Elah, where the Bible says David toppled Goliath, archaeologists are unearthing a 3,000-year-old fortified city that could reshape views of the period when David ruled over the Israelites.

The 10th century B.C. is the most controversial period in biblical archaeology because it is then, according to the Old Testament, that David united the kingdoms of Judah and Israel, setting the stage for his son Solomon to build his great temple and rule over a vast area from the Nile to the Euphrates Rivers.

For many Jews and Christians, even those who do not take Scripture literally, the Bible is a vital historical source. And for the state of Israel, which considers itself to be a reclamation of the state begun by David, evidence of the biblical account has huge symbolic value. The Foreign Ministry’s Web site, for example, presents the kingdom of David and Solomon along with a map of it as a matter of fact.

But the archaeological record of that kingdom is exceedingly sparse — in fact almost nonexistent — and a number of scholars today argue that the kingdom was largely a myth created some centuries later. A great power, they note, would have left traces of cities and activity, and been mentioned by those around it. Yet in this area nothing like that has turned up — at least until now.

Mr. Garfinkel says he has something here that generations have been seeking. He has made two informal presentations in the past month to fellow archaeologists. On Thursday he will give his first formal lecture at a conference in Jerusalem.

What he has found so far has impressed many. Two burned olive pits found at the site have been tested for carbon-14 at Oxford University and were found to date from between 1050 and 970 B.C., exactly when most chronologies place David as king.”
