The Secret of the Magen David And Moshiach Revealed by the Baal Shem Tov

Before we begin, keep in mind that the radiance of the sun as measured by its temperature at its surface is 5778 K, as in the date prophesied by the tzaddikim for the arrival of Moshiach and the geula (final redemption), and that the returning light radiance of the Earth by the same measurement is 248.573

From the Baal Shem Tov’s Teachings on Prayer there is a cryptic explanation about the tree-or-life and G-d structure of the universe, telling us that while inspiration cones from above our process and processing of it occurs in the columns of the realm of Zeir Anpin.

He explains those 3 columns (right, left and central) as Chesed, Din and Rachamim. What was left unsaid was that the numerical value of Chesed, Din and Rachamim is that of Mashiach Ben David (424), the Messiah.

Chesed, Din and Rachamim means Love, Judgment, and Compassion, the 3 attributes we need working together proportionately and with proper and pure intent to bring H’Moshiach, the messiah . It also wasn’t said that Rachamim is just the plural of Racham of numerical value 248.

The Baal Shem Tov further explains ,as Translated by Rabbi Dr. Eliezer Stone, “It is impossible to look at the sun itself. We can, however, look at its light, and derive benefit from it because the sun’s strength has been diminished. Were the rays of the sun to be as brilliant as the sun, they would also be impossible to look at. Thus, it is written: “Sun and shield is Y-H-V-H Elokim” (Psalms 84:12). Kesser Shem Tov, part 2, p. 19d

We said at the outset that his teaching was cryptic, and what wisdom is hidden within! What beauty is hidden within the psalms and in this pasuk: “Sun and shield is Y-H-V-H Elokim” (Psalms 84:12)!

On the surface, the Rav is explaining about the process of filtering down the Light and inspiration for thought, speech through the 6 sefirot (dimensions) of Zeir Anpin, hence the mention of the 6 pointed Shield of David, the Magen David, which we know from chazal correspond with the 6 dimensions of Zeir Anpin and their respective Patriarchs, starting with Abraham (of numerical value 248).

But what was left unsaid for those that understand is that the numerical value of “Y-H-V-H Elokim,” the fusion of the upper and lower worlds, as discussed in our previous post “Science  and Spirituality Collide,” is 107.

And moreover, the numerical value of Magen David (the Shield of David, more commonly known as the Star of David) is also 107.

And most significantly, the sum of all the positive integers through 107 = 5778.

As the time for the geula approaches and many dark veils descend, many more are being lifted for those that want to see, to see the tree-of-life reality. And as another veil has been lifted, we can now see that the structure of the tree-of-life universe and in particular, as given by the Baal Shem Tov’s examples, the 6 sefirot of Zeir Anpin that we can interact with, are designed to bring us Mashiach Ben David (424) in 5778, and that this structure is mimicked in our galaxy through the relationship of giver and receiver of Light of the Sun (5778K) and the returner of Compassion, Earth (248K).

And because this life-giving relationship and our need to give back racham (Compassion, as the proper mixture of Love and Judgment) is repeated on the level of our society and on us individually with Hashem, several facts bear repeating in this post:

1) Abraham, the Patriach, said in the Sefer Yetzirah that Moshiach would come through the letters controlling the month of Cheshvan (Scorpio), dalet and nun, which together add up to 54 and as it turns out 54 x 107 = 5778.

2) The relationship between the Light and returning light of the sun and Earth is 5778/248.573 = 23.2447 and 232 is the numerical value of the fully expanded Name of G-d, Tetragrammaton (YHVH: Av, Sag, Mah, Ban) and 2447 are both the years preceding the giving of the Torah at Sinai in 2448, and the total number of years of the 4 exiles when the last one ends in 5778.

3) Since the geula means the end of the exile from the 70 nations that too is built into relationship between the radiance of the Sun and the Earth, since the sum of all the positive integers through 70 is 2485 and as mentioned earlier, the returning light radiance of the Earth by is 248.573 K.

4) And for those skeptics about the sum of the integers having any significance, or about the spiritual tenet that nothing is ever lost such that in the example above the number 70 can house all the energy of the numbers before it and thus also equal 2485, know this:

While the sum of all the positive integers through the number 73 is equivalent to 2701, the numerical value of the Torah’s first verse; and the Torah’s first 33 letters have the numerical value of 3003 that of the sum of all the positive integers through 77: the total number of Yuds, Heys, and Vavs in the Torah, the letters in the Tetragrammaton(YHVH), is exactly 90,100, the sum of all the positive integers through 424 (Mashiach Ben David) is 90,100.

Do any of us need more signs of G-d’s perfection, or of His perfect design and Love for us? All we have to do is follow His rules. Return the Light by emanating Compassion. We need to make ourselves one with the design. “He and His Name are One.” We must be as well.

The Hidden Message in the 10 Plagues

The 44th President of the United States has just been sworn in (twice, the second time without the Bible), about 66.6 jubilee years (Biblical 50-year interval) years after the 10 plagues and 8 years shy of the year 5778 when the tzaddikim have prophesied Moshiach and the geula (final redemption) will come.

It’s mandatory to celebrate Passover (Pesach) every year and recount the story of the exodus, including the explicit listing of the 10 plagues. Why? Is it just so we don’t forget? Wouldn’t it be better to instead concentrate on the 10 miracles G-d performed for the Israelites on their way to receiving the 10 Commandments and the Torah in 2448?

A most common form of Torah analysis performed by the sages is to examine the first letters of key word groupings, phrases, or verses. And for what it’s worth, the sum of the nominal value of the initials of our 44th President, Barak Hussein Obama (B,Ch,E) is 11, but certainly more significant is the sum of the nominal value of the initials of the 11 words that comprise the 10 plagues, which is 541, the numerical value of the name Israel.

Israel is not only the last word in the Torah, but Israel was arguably formed out of the end of the exile immediately precipitated by the 10 plagues, especially the last plague, the killing of the firstborn, whose initials are Mem-Bet.

Mem-Bet is not only the Name of the 42-Letter Name of G-d, profoundly associated with the time of redemption, but it is named justly because it has the numerical value of 42, as in the 42 places the Israelites traveled through on their way out of Egypt to the Promised Land. And according to chazal, including the Baal Shem Tov, as in the steps our souls make on their way to redemption.

It’s very important to note that the 10 plagues were executed just as much to wake up the Israelites as the Egyptians. The Egyptians had to let got of their physical belongings, but the Israelites had to embrace the spiritual, a step that is just as hard. The 10 plagues were signs for them, just as we are receiving signs ourselves today

That said, the first letter of the 40 letters in the 10 plagues is dalet, with the numerical value of 4, as in the number of letters in Tetragrammaton (YHVH) and in the Name of G-d, Ehyeh, the Name used in “I am that I am.”

I am” was what President Obama answered when sworn in for the 2nd time–when he wasn’t using a Bible. When the fuller progressive form of Ehyeh is calculated “I am” has a numerical value of 44. And by the way, Asher (EShR) as in “Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh” (I am that I am”) has the same numerical value as Barak Hussein Obama (בּרק חוסיין אובּאמה) which is also the same as the initials of the 10 plagues if the last one is considered a single letter (דצ”ך עד”ש באח”ב).

Is this all coincidence?

The first plague, dam, blood, is spelled dalet-mem, which is numerically 4 plus 40 or 44.

The deeper secret is in the blood. The first plague is Dam (dalet-mem), whose first letter is dalet. The first letter of the last plague is Mem, thus the whole 10 plagues can be collapsed in abbreviated form into dam, the first plague. Not only does mem, complete the word dam, but it in effect encompasses and represents the full 40 letters in the 10 plagues. Please note that that means that there are an exact average of 40/10 = 4 letters per plague, the numerical value of dalet.

We use the word encompasses here because the final mem is not only shaped like a closed womb, but according to the sages it is supposed to represent one as well, and if we subtract the numerical value of dam (blood) from that of Da’at, we get 474 – 44 equals 430, both the numerical value of nefesh, (the animalistic or lower part of the soul), which the sages tell us is housed in the blood, and the number of years the Jews were in exile through the end of the 10 plagues in 2448.

Title page of first edition of the Zohar, Mant...

And from the womb flows both the blood of judgment unto the Egyptians and the mercy to the Jews in the birth of the Israel. Please note that the bleeding or menstruating womb is considered the height of serious judgment, according to the Zohar (Shemot). The bleeding womb also refers to the death of the first born.

We know from the sages (chazal) that the Passover passage out of Egypt was about Da’at, the serifa (dimension) of balance and knowledge, and that it was represented in the dalet of dam, the first letter of the first plague. Furthermore, dalet, when spelled out, has the numerical value of 434, while da’at has the numerical value of 474, leaving a difference of 40, between them, the numerical value of mem, showing us that the full word dam, blood, is included in Da’at.

It’s all about Four (4)

While many of the significant mandated elements of Pesach (Passover) including the 4 questions, the 4 cups of wine, the 4 sons, the 4 aspects of the Tetragrammaton and the 4 letters in it, and also in the name Eyheh, we been told by the sages that they correspond to the 4 exiles, which are finally coming to a close, the last one after 1948 years.

The first plague, blood (dam), is spelled dalet-mem, with the first letter having the numerical value of 4, and the next letter having the value of 40, or 10 x 4. Meanwhile, not only does the first letter of the last plague, the killing of the first born, also have the value of 40, but there are 40 letters in the 10 plagues, making 4 the exact average number of letters per plague. And while the final letter of the 10 plagues is 400 or 10 x 40, the second plague, frogs, has a numerical value of 444, or 4 x 111, the numerical value of Alef, the first letter in the Hebrew alphabet and Ehyeh, (and in Obama for that matter).

Moreover, as mentioned earlier, the 4 letters of the Name Ehyeh, (EHYH)—the Name revealed to Moses just prior to the plagues–can be expanded to 10 letters through progressive method– sometimes called squaring–to (E, EH, EHY, EHYH), which is numerically equivalent to 44, the same as dam, blood, the first plague.

The connection to 4 for Pesach and the 10 plagues at the end of the 1st exile is interesting because 10 is an extension both numerically and spiritually of 4. Numerically, the 4th triangular number has a value of 10, just as 10 is the sum of the first 4 integers, as in 1+2+3+4 = 10.

Spiritually, both the 4 letters of the Tetragrammaton and of the Name Eyheh when expanded by spelling them out have 10 letters each. Moreover, as we mentioned earlier, Passover is about da’at, which begins with the letter dalet, of numerical value 4, while da’at is a sefira or dimension that combines the dimensions of Chochma and Binah, whose numerical values of its initials (Bet and Chet) 8 and 2 add up to 10. And which also happens to be the initials of Barak Hussein (Bet and Chet).

So in a sense we see the 10 plagues extending throughout the 4 exiles, for a total of 40, as in the 40 letters in the 10 plagues., yet another reason it’s mandated we read the haggada and review all the plagues, etc every year throughout the various exiles.

The plagues didn’t just happen 66.6 jubilee years ago, they’ve been reoccurring continually throughout the 4 exiles in one form or another. Just witness the example of the first plague, dam, blood, there have been many times in these past 3330 years when tens and even hundreds of thousands have died and rivers of blood have flowed.

The 10 Plagues were Planned at the Beginning of Time.

While the 11 words of the 10 plagues correspond to the 11 unique letters in the first verse of the Torah, the first 4 letters of the Torah have an ordinal value of 44, the same as Dam, the first plague. It’s broken down to 2 for the first letter, Bet (2) and 42 for the next 3 letters (Resh, Alef, Shin), which spells Asher yet again, as in the 42-letter Name.

The next 2 letters, completing the entire first word of the Torah, Bereshit, “In the Beginning” have an ordinal value of 32, as in the value of the 4 components of the letter Alef, connecting, as we’ve discussed in other blogs, to the 32 Paths of Wisdom that define the structure of the universe and that house the 10 sefirot (dimensions).

When we add them together, we get numerically 76, square root of 5778, and the value of the fully expanded Tetragrammaton at the highest level of Av (chochma), but alphabetically they spell out Alef-Dalet-Mem, or Adam.

Adam (Alef-dam) represents the first flesh and blood incarnation of the Jewish soul, the source of which, as we’ve written about in other articles, is in the primordial Alef that exists before the Torah, and dam, or blood, represents both the flesh and the flow of the lower soul (nefesh) throughout time, throughout the generations.

With Alef as the source, we can note that the 11 initials of the 10 plagues have an ordinal value of 100 and if we add 11 as the kolel to 100 we get 111, the numerical value of the name of the letter Alef. And once again, we have the union or fusion of the primordial Alef as the head of the Dam, just like ADAM.

Another analogy to the connection between the Alef, whose sum total of its 4 components letters is 32, and the 10 plagues and moreover to the initials of the final plague, Mem-Bet, is provided by Rabbi Chaim Vittal of blessed Memory. The eminent sage explained that the 10 sefirot (dimensions) plus the 32 Paths of Wisdom that link them together form the structure of the greater universe and together they comprise the 42-Letters of the 42-Letter Name, the Shem Mem-Bet.

As explained in detail in The Genesis Prayer, the first verse of the Torah is where the Shem Mem-Bet, or the 42-Letter Name of G-d, is derived from, and if we take the sum of the numerical values of the first letter of each of the 7 words of that first verse, 22—obviously representative of the 22 normal letters of the Hebrew alphabet—and add it to the ordinal value of those same 7 letters, 22, we get 22 + 22 = 44, once again, the value of the first plague, dam, blood.

Incidentally, and again as discussed in detail in The Genesis Prayer, the first verse of the Torah is integrally connected in multiple ways to both the numerical value of Mashiach, the Messiah, 358 and to the mathematical constant PI to an astounding precision. One of the simplest ways is through the average value of those 7 letters, 22/7 or 3.14.

Now, if we think this is coincidence we need only examine the full first 10 letters of the Torah and see that the sum of their ordinal values also equals 100 (keter, the crowning highest dimension), the exact same 100 as the sum of the ordinal values of the first letters of the 10 plagues. And since the 10 plagues has 11 first letters, yet another connection to the Torah’s first verse is found in that amongst the 28 letters of that verse, also an average of exactly 28/7 = 4 letters per word, there are only 11 unique (non-recurring) letters.

Moreover, as mentioned earlier, the sum of the nominal value of those same 11 letters is 541, the numerical value of the name Israel, the last word in the Torah.

The process of gematria computation allows us to subtract the kolel as well as add it and though I rarely use that approach, in this case if we subtract the ordinal value from the initial letters of the plagues from their standard numerical values they are equal to (541100) = 441, which is the numerical value of emet, truth, an allusion to the Torah, to the 42-Letter Name of G-d, and to the Tree-of-life structure of the universe with its 32 paths and 10 sefirot.

Moreover, 441 = 212, or as pointed out by chazal, is the square of the numerical value of the higher Name of G-d, Ehyeh. And the sum of the two Ehyeh that form Emet and that form “I am that I am” Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh” add up to 21 + 21 = 42.

Since the first letters of the final plague are Mem-bet and since the sum of all the first letters of all 10 plagues (11 words) is 541, the numerical value of Israel, one interpretation is that the 10 plagues and 42 places lead to Israel.

Another is that it will take 10 plagues, corresponding to the 10 sefirot (dimensions), the existence of Israel, and the understanding of the Shem Mem-Bet (Ana B’koach) to reach the geula (final redemption), as chazal has suggested.

The 10 plagues today have as much significance for us today as they had for the Israelites 66.6 jubilee years ago and the signs around the 44th Presidency are just that: signs. We’re not suggesting anything sinister (G-d forbid) we’re saying that they are signs to help us take notice that immense pressures and changes our coming, and if history Bible are our guides they will come in increasing waves.

Let’s read the signs and be prepared. As we did 3330 years ago, we need to let go and embrace the spiritual. To be continued, as we see what the 10 plagues mean for us today with the 44th President and how they connect to the year 5778 (2018 CE), the year the Covenant of Abraham gets fulfilled.

The Secret of Water: Water is life, Water is King, G-d is in the Water

It had rained for 2 days straight and with the flood water rising in my backyard, I was reading the Zohar on parsha Noach last night, and not surprisingly there are many insights there into the nature of water.

What is in the water we drink? How long can we go without a glass of water. When we fast on Yom Kippur and Tish B’av what are we depriving ourselves of, restricting from. Is it just from our physical desires?

Genesis (Bereshit) 7:4 “And it rained upon the earth for 40 days and 40 nights…”

From Exodus (Shemot) 24:18 ” And Moshe entered into the midst of the cloud…Moshe came to the cloud where Elohim was…Moshe was on the mountain for 40 days and 40 nights.”

What was so important about there being 40 days and 40 nights? If the Torah had told us only about 40 days or 40 nights we would have inferred the other without a second thought.

Why was there a front side 40 and a backside 40?

Both the rains the clouds are comprised wholly of water, the essence of life. Moreover, they are both water from above, from on high if you will.

Mayim, water is spelled MYM which each mem (M) having a value of 40, a front side 40 and a backside 40.

In between the two mems (MM) is the letter yud (Y), which mimics the actual physical construction of the water molecule, H2O, two hydrogen atoms and one Oxygen one in the center. If we assume a divine plan to life, then we can assume that the HOH is spiritually connected and represented by HVH, the Hebrew equivalent. And then if we add that to mayim, MYM, we get MEM (MM) and YHVH, the Tetragrammaton.

Now it just so happens the the letter Mem (MM) in gematria sofit (final letter) is 640 and YHVH is always 26, so (MM and YHVH) can very well equal 640 + 26 = 666. And thus 666 can be the symbol of life giving waters of Hashem (God).

Moreover, the spelled-out letter Mem (MM) has the ordinal value of 26, again that of the YHVH, the ineffable Name of G-d.

The actual molecular structure would be M(YHVH)M, and it would help explain why there is no physical life without water.

Why is the very first thing we learn after hearing that “G-d created Heaven and Earth” in Genesis 1:1 that in Genesis 1:2 “He hovered above the waters?” We can write endlessly as to what this means, but the 21st word in the Torah is “the waters, ” mentioned even before “the Light,” stressing its importance.

This would also explain the extraordinary similarities between water (MYM) and KIng (MLC), both of which have the numerical value of 90, and the ordinal value of 36, which together are each 90 + 36 =126, which is also 126 = 3 x 42, as in the 42-Letter Name of G-d (Shem Mem-bet). another secret of 126 is that it is also 100 + 26, or the value of keter, the highest spiritual level and 26, the YHVH.

Moreover, the gematria atbash (reverse alphabet cipher) of water, MYM is YMY, is of numerical value 60, while the gematria atbash of Melech, king (MLC) is (YCL) or 60 as well. And the small (gematria katan) value of each is also the same, 4+1+4 = 9 = 4+3+2. And similarly in E’bG’d gematria, where each letter is switched for the next highest ordinal value letter, the values of the two 3-letter words become 50+20+50 = 120 = 50+40+30.

And while there are other similarities we’ll just note that the gematria of both words is also 400+100+400 = 900 = 400 + 300 + 200, with 900 being the value of the final final letter in the Alef-bet (alphabet), Zaddi, who also has the value of 90, which as you recall was the original simple value of both water and king.

There are no other word pairs with such similar spiritual structures, and of course, Hashem is known as the King, the King of Kings. In kabbalistic spirituality, the more alike something is in form the shorter the distance between them and the stronger the ties/bonds between them. Between King and Water there’s very little distance, one hovering above the other.

But back to water itself, If we spell out the letters in mayim, we get MM, YVD, MM whose simple value is 80 + 20 + 80 = 180, which is 10 x 18, and 18 is the value of the the Hebrew word, chai, life, and thus symbolizes life throughout the 10 dimensions (serifot). Life from water! And it’s no coincidence that the square root of 18 is 4.242640, or Maschiah Ben David (424), YHVH (26) and 40.

And while the mem-yud spelled out has the value (100), that of Keter, the crown, the highest sefira/dimension, the final mem (MM) can be thought of as the 40 days and 40 nights.

So knowing that G-d (YHVH) is in the water and that water is connected to the highest spiritual level and purity, what do you think happens when we contaminate and pollute our water? What spiritual message do you think that is sending to the universe? Wouldn’t that be figuratively like throwing (G-d forbid, Has v’shalom) garbage at G-d. So what does that say about us and our readiness to receive the Mashiach, the Messiah.

When we restrict from drinking water in our fasts, we are reminding ourselves how important it is to have G-d, Hashem, in our lives, how our sustenance and survival is dependent upon it. But of course, we must understand why we are restricting before we can reap the benefits. There have been may scientific tests that show water is indeed sensitive at the structural level to different energy (vibes). So rather than restricting a couple days of years, let’s restrict the whole year from negativity, from polluting the waters of the earth physically and spiritually. Like attracts like; like below is above. Moses attracted the Clouds-of-glory. Noach’s generation attracted the devastating flood waters. The erev rav got 40 years in the desert for their lack of faith. And our generations? We invented acid rain. We need to do better.

The word “the heavens,” H’Shama’im, the 5th word in the Torah (Bible), contains the word water (mayim). Is that a coincidence too? Mayim (water) is repeated twice within the first 2 verses of the Torah, in the 5th (H’Shama’im) and in the 21st word, the waters H’mayim. Together, 5 + 21 = 26, the value of the YHVH. Together the numerical value of the full two words is equivalent to that of H’Shechinah and to “The KING, a complicated concept that in simple terms refers to the integration of the male and female aspects of G-d and the universe in harmony, the mutual giving and receiving in purity. Numerically, it’s 395 + 95 + 26 (kolel for the ordinal; word value) =516, the number of times Moses needed to pray in order to bring H’Mashiach, the Messiah.

Now here is another deep secret, a deep Bible code if you will. In known by chazal that the waters that split the Red Sea (See of Reeds) were programmed to do so since the dawn of creation. The first mention of water in the Torah is in the word H’Shama’im in the Torah’s 1st verse. The letters for water (MYM) are the 19th, 20, and 21st letters in the Torah, and the 3 verses of the splitting of the Red Sea, the 3 sequential verses of 72 letters from which the 72 Names of G-d are derived, are Exodus (Shemot) 14:19, 20, and 21.

As it was in the beginning, G-d hovers above the waters. The waters are a powerful direct connection we have to G-d; let’s use them in a positive way, in the pure way they were meant to be used. And let’s bring about the Moshiach in our generation.

The Torah  gives us a final clue to how we can help purify the waters again, physically and spiritually, and that is found int eh number of times the word water (mayim) is found in one form or another in the Torah.  It’s found 173 times and 173 is the small gematria value of the 42-Letter name of G-d, (the Shem Mem-Bet, also known as the Ana B’koach).

Elohim and the End of Days

What was in the Beginning?

“In the Beginning, G-d” “Bereshit Bara Elohim

Given that the name of G-d Elohim is the 3rd word in the Torah (Bible), we know that Elohim was in the beginning, but what about in the end? I mean, after a while, we’re introduced to another nine Names of G-d, including YHVH, Adonai, El, Ehyeh, etc, and each represent G-d but also a certain aspect of G-d. It’s something like a Senator that represents and speaks for the federal government but at the same time represents and speaks for his particular state. That said, we know from chazal (the kabbalists and the sages of blessed memory) that the Name Elohim represents “nature,” the natural world of cause and effect with the time delay between one and the other.

Now this delay is both a curse and blessing. It means that when we do something wrong, we’re not immediately punished for it. If I accidentally trip you, the next person I meet doesn’t accidentally trip me, which gives me time to atone for my action somehow, which is a blessing. And spiritually, saying “sorry” doesn’t cut it because “sorry: doesn’t take away my carelessness (lack of human dignity that I didn’t care enough about a fellow human being to watch where I was going and/or that I was so wrapped up in my selfish ego to even perceive another fellow in my path), and it doesn’t take away my pain. That is why, even accidents must be atoned for, which means that if I don’t atone for it, somewhere down the road I’ll be tripped up in my actions/process, even in my good intentions and I won’t know why.

It’s also a curse because if was awake enough to perceive the immediate effects of my actions, I might learn from them quickly and become a more spiritual and spiritually in tuned person. So because of Elohim, we’re spared the physical pain but must endure a much more tortuous spiritual path.

So what is in the End?

As we’ve learned and discussed in other posts (notably Time, Times, and half a time) that the expanded sofit value of the letter Alef (ELP) is 1830, and also that the letter Alef exists in a primordial state before Creation and the Torah, thus anchoring the Name Elohim to an exalted existential space, we find that the numerical value of Elohim spelled out can be read as 1830 + 74 + 15 + 20 +80 = 2019 CE, the year that the prophesies state the illusionary cause and effect world of the tree of knowledge of good and evil will be no more and that the spiritual paradigm of the Tree-of-life reality will be in effect. It’s the end of the Hebrew year 5778, the time, according to prophecy and the Divine Calendar of the Messiah, of the Mashiach.

And from the name Elohim, we can see it further break down to EL and HYM, 1904 + 115 and as discussed in previous blogs, there are 115, (the value of the word (Hazak), meaning strength) jubilee years (Biblical 50-year cycle) from Adam to 5778 and Moshiach.

And the sign that this is no coincidence is that the last two letters in Elohim (ELHYM), yud-mem (YM) add up to 50 in simple gematria, and moreover, we know from the Arizal and chazal that the yud-mem (YM) does indeed represent the 50 Gates of Binah that accompanies the Tree-of-life reality.

Furthermore, spelled out the yud (YLD) and mem (MM), 20 + 80, are representative individually of the letters caf (C) (20) and Pe (P) (80) which together spell out caf (CP) of numerical value 100, and thus this yud-mem (YM) represents Keter both through the total 100 and though the letter Caf, as it is known to represent Keter, crown, the highest dimension/sefira.

To get to core of what is happening within the name Elohim, we must understand as taught to us by the sages that the Name itself through it’s 5 letters is the second letter Hey (H) of numerical value 5 of the ineffable Name YHVH (Tetragrammaton) and that it connects directly to the 5 final (sofit) letters which represent judgment.

Once we understand this, we can then see that the spelled out letters HYM or (HY, YVD, MM) can per permuted to MYM D’YHV, which means “water from YHV (the upper worlds)” which when Elohim is properly connected in our hearts, is completed by the name itself to MYM D’YHVH and since the final Hey (H) is really a vessel, thus the waters and abundance can flow to our world and we can utilize them. When it’s cut off, we get drought and darkness, or when we do receive them we get just plain short-circuits in both the physical and spiritual sense. This is very deep and for those that understand but as the end of days approaches our ability to understand will blossom as will our need.

In the final days, we will complete the circuit of the 27 letter, including the 5 final ones and thus complete the circuitry within Elohim, enabling the upper waters to flow and the Tree-of-Life to grow. This is a metaphor, but in our present state of consciousness we cannot perceive anything more than metaphors. B”H that will all soon change.
