In the nearly 5778 years of our existence since Adam, we have had the connection to the Creator through the Ark of the Covenant in our midst for only 890 years, just 26.72% of the 3330 years since it was given to us. Or so we were led to believe. The truth is we always had it. It has been at our fingertips all along. The Ark, the Tabernacle, the direct connection to G-d, and all that is Holy in the universe has been concealed, wrapped up tight and handed to us at the moment of Creation. It has actually never left our sight or been denied to us, not in exile, nor in our denial.
There is a prayer or meditation that many of us know as the Ana B’koach or 42-Letter Name of G-d matrix that is extremely powerful in changing or shifting reality. Yet few of us have a real inkling as to how powerful these 42 Letters really are or how much technology is embedded in them. It is even more than that though. Everything in the Torah and our divinely inspired history is encapsulated into it. It is the blueprint to Creation drafted on a level we cannot fathom.
Still, a little kabbalistic decoding gives us insights into some of that primordial imprinting and thus allows us to tap into that Power and those Biblical reference points as if we were there in the moment. One can ask, “What can that do for us?” It can give us, what we refer to today as “miracles.” Further, when we know the right power points it can give us more specific and more powerful ones. Some of these concealed connections were revealed in the book, The Genesis Prayer and in a few of our articles. As we get closer and closer to the time of Moshiach (the Messiah), it becomes more imperative that we tap into this energy and make stronger connections to the Creator and to the energy of Creation.
To those that are unfamiliar with the power of the 42-Letter Name, we should first note that it was the Arizal, one the most knowledgeable and powerful kabbalists of all time, who told us that no prayer could be elevated without it. Second, as Rav Brandwein, the Admor of Stretin of blessed memory, said, “It is through the understanding of the 42-Letter Name that Moshiach will come.” Third, the Ana B’koach can drill through anything in this world, no matter how thick the negativity—all you need is a deeper understanding as to what it connects and to recite it, sometimes multiple times if the situation calls for it. What you will experience is that the layers of negativity will peel away like the skins of an onion, and the finely stacked layers of parallel universes will dissolve until you come to the one with the positive outcome you need.
We are revealing today a series of newly unveiled ancient connections that will both help to explain the technology behind the 42-Letter Matrix and give you greater control over the evil inclination and protection from evil in general; two advantages we need more than ever in these times.
Of all the processes and tools G-d gave to us regarding the Holy Temple and the Mishkan (Tabernacle), nothing is more powerful as a protection against the forces of evil than the 11-incense. In Vayak’hel, the Zohar Vol. 12:466 tells us that “whoever smelled the smoke coming from the pillar rising from the smoke raiser, would cleanse his heart totally to worship his Master, and the filth of the Evil Inclination would pass from him…nothing in the world breaks the Other Side except incense… It can revoke sorcery, and evil things at home.”
What good would all that do if the recipe for the incense was lost and the Mishkan was gone as well? Fortunately, the energy of the recipe, the altar, the 11-incense, its pillar of smoke, and of Aaron, the High Priest were all captured in the 42-Letter Matrix, preserved for all time.
Found in the 2nd line of the matrix (קרעשטן) are 3 of the 4 letters in ketoret (KTtRT, קטרת ) the Hebrew word for incense plus the letter Tav (ת) found in the 1st line, just above the letter Tet (ט). As we have written about it previously, this 2nd line in particular is especially powerful for protection and literally means to “tear out Satan, the evil inclination.”
The smoke from the 11-incense is known in the Torah as Ashen (AShN, עשן ) of numerical value 420 (or 10 times 42), and it too is found in perfect sequence within the 2nd line (קרעשטן).
In Exodus 30:8, after G-d states that Aaron should light the incense twice a day, the ketoret offering is described as “Thus, for all generations there will be incense before G-d at all times,” indicating it was meant to outlast the presence of the Mishkan and Holy Temples. As explained by Rav Kook, the ketoret linked the material and spiritual realms. As opposed to ordinary smoke, the ashen rose straight up, connecting our physical realm with the heavenly, much as the Ana B’koach does.
Starting off the 6 letters of the 4th line (בט-רצתג), which itself has the numerical value of ketoret (KTtRT, קטרת) when the kolel is included, are the two letters (בט) which have the numerical value of 11. These same two letters (בט) are found again in the center of the 5th line (חק-בט-נע).
The word ketoret means connecting; it is the incense that the High Priest, such as Aaron would offer up twice a day. It was an offering to G-d. The two times (בט) of numerical value 11 are included within the 42-Letter matrix represent the 2 times a day the offering is supposed to be made. The 11 spices in the incense mixture connect both to the 11 unique letters in the Torah’s first verse and the 11 sefirot in the Tree-of-Life when Da’at is included. These 11 unique letters have a complete value (ordinal plus standard gematria) of 1214, the exact numerical value of “70 languages” (שבעים לשונות), corresponding to the 70 nations, as explained by Rav Abulafia or blessed memory, who went on to say that 1214 is the exact value for the “permutation of the letters” (צירוף האותיות).
The final column of the 6 column matrix also contains the word for smoke ashen (AShN, עשן ) within the first 5 rows, and the two letters of the 5 final ones of those lines that were not utilized in that word are the tzadi and the gimmel (ץג) which together have the numerical value of 903, which is the sum of all the integers from 1 to 42.
The altar upon which the incense was placed in the Mishkan is called in Hebrew the Mizbeach (מזבח) of numerical value 57, the same is the 1st triplet of the 3rd line of the 42-Letter Name matrix (נגד). Notice how it is situated just below the words for ketoret and smoke (ashen) within the matrix. Notice also how the smoke (ashen, עשן ) flows upward sequentially from below in a straight pillar.
Cinnamon was one of the 11 spices and in Hebrew it is spelled cinnamon (KYNMVN קינמון) and it has the same gematria value as both Aaron and as the last line of the 42-Letter Name (שקו צית). This is very important because while Moses’ and Miriam’s names are also found concealed within the 42-Letter Name matrix, we will discuss this shortly in our next installment, Aaron must be present for the ketoret to be accepted. Otherwise it would be considered as “strange fire,” which not only led to the deaths of Nadav and Avihu, but also to the deaths of his cousin Korach and his 250 followers. By incorporating Aaron’s name at the level of malchut, the 7th line, Aaron’s energy is present and available to us today to elevate our prayers and offerings throughout the 42-Letter chambers. It was Aaron who used the incense to bind the Angel of Death and end the plague. And it is Aaron’s name (not anyone else’s) which is associated in the Torah with Moshiach,
The embedded technology of the rising incense continues upward through the 1st line and uppermost line of the Ana B’koach, the line associated with Chesed. This final processing point before our prayers are elevated has the gematria of 506, and as delineated in The Genesis Prayer, this is also the same as numerical value of “Unconditional love” and is also the complete (standard plus ordinal) gematria value of “Moshiach Ben David.” The value 506 also matches up with the 506 times that the 14 triplets that comprise the 42-Letter Name are found within the Torah. What has not been revealed before is that 506 equals the sum of the squares of the integers from 1 to 11, and thus we find just as our prayers are about to rise that their strength and the power of the 11-incense are exponentially magnified.
12 + 22 + 32 + 42 + 52 + 62 +72 + 82 + 92 + 102 + 112 = 506
When the energy builds and passes through the 11th expansion it leaves our realm entirely and rises upwards to the highest levels.
What awaits our prayers above is the Upper 42-letter Name, which is the conduit through which all our prayers from below are processed and the blessings channeled. The numerical value of the 42 Letters in this expansion of the Ineffable Name (יהוה) is the same as that of ketoret (KTtRT, קטרת ) plus the kolel of 1, completing the divine technological loop.
How important is this connection within the Ana B’koach? Rabbi Shimon in the Zohar wrote:
Zohar 12:468: It is a standing decree before the Holy One, blessed be He that whoever looks at and reads every day the section of the preparation of the ketoret, he is protected from all things evil and sorcery in the world, from mishap, from evil thoughts, from harsh judgment, and from death, and shall not come to harm on that day, for the Other Side may have no power over him… Rabbi Shimon said, if people would know how exalted the concept of the ketoret is before the Holy One, blessed be He, they would take every single word in it and raise it as a crown on their head like a golden crown…If he concentrates on it every day, he has a portion both in this world and in the World to Come. Death is banished from him and from the world, and he will be protected from prosecution in this world, from the ordeal of Gehenom and from judgment in this world.”
We know from the tzaddikim that the deep understanding and use of the Ana B’koach will help bring about Moshiach in our lifetime, therefore understanding that the ketoret, according to the Zohar Vol. 12:470, “creates unity, above and below, so that everything becomes one,” is crucial, as is also using the 42-Letter Name with intent and knowledge. It was always known that neither the Mishkan nor Aaron would be physically available to us to prepare and light the incense in these critical days when the Other Side in its death throes is at its strongest. Therefore their energy and DNA was preserved for us at the time of Creation.
