The financial markets keep aligning with the Jewish holidays.
A couple days prior to Shavuot, we advised everyone to meditate on the last line of the Ana B’koach (the 42-Letter Name) as part of their Shavuot kavanot, and we explained why.
And we and others have pointed out for all of us that the numbers of the various (almost always the Dow) US stock exchanges have significant numerical alignments on the day of or erev (evening before) the holidays beginning with erev Rosh Hashanah 5769 when the Dow fell 777.77 pts.
So is it also a coincidence that the last line of the 42-Letter name has the numerical value of 906 and the S & P closed at 906.13 on erev Shavuot? And, of course, 13 is the gematria of Ahava (love) and 613 is the number of Mitzvot (precepts) in the Torah that we receive on Shavuot.
That was an encouraging sign for me, but I wanted to know if there was anything else, maybe with the Dow that happened on Shavuot. But my newspaper mysteriously wasn’t delivered on Shavuot and my newspaper the day before arrived soaking wet in the rain. It kept me from being distracted, and after Shabbat I found the soaking wet paper that I’d set aside to dry and also found that the day before Shavuot 5769:
The S & P fell 17.3 pts
The Dow fell 173 pts, closing at 8300.0
The Nasdaq closed at 1731.08
173 is the small gematria value of the 42-Letter Name from which the entire Torah is derived.
The Zohar tells us Moses received 173 keys to Heaven; so we take this as a pretty good sign for us this Shavuot, and we know where our focus needs to be. The sages have already told us many years ago that it is through the understanding of the 42-Letter Name that the Geula (final redemption) will come.
If the financial markets could pause and make room for the 42-Letter Name, we need to do it as well. Why these alignments with the stock exchanges? Maybe G-d wants to show us from where our sustenance really derives and maybe it because a billion eyes are on these closing numbers and only a few thousand stayed up all night to receive the Torah and light of Mashiach on Shavuot this year.
If any of this is new to you, you should begin by reading The Genesis Prayer the first book ever that explained the 42-Letter Name and The Divine Calendar, the book that puts the final redemption, coming of Moshiach and end of days in historic and concrete perspective.
In our next article, we’re going to cover what the Zohar has to say about what will happen when Moshiach arrives and the final redemption occurs, and when the Tikunei Zohar specifically says it will occur.
