What is going on?
Our last blog was about the split that happened at “The 10 Utterances,” which we showed beyond doubt to connect to Creation, the Torah’s first verse, the Torah in its entirety, to the tree-of-life, to the 42-Letter name, and to Moshiach.
When we last left the Israelites at the 10 Utterances (Commandments), they were at keter, the highest point of ascension possible.
They were immersed in the 620 letters and the 62 Yuds (Y) of the 10 Utterances found at the 20th chapter in Exodus with the number 20, esrim, having a gematria value of 620, that same as Keter, the “crown”. And while the letter yud (Y) has the value 10, and can substitute for the 10 in the 10 utterances, when it’s spelled out, (Y-V-D), it has the value 20, esrim and thus Keter again.
The ascending Israelites were past the aspect of G-d called Elohim, which was reflected in the 62 Elohims present in the Torah through the 10 generations of Adam. They were in the letter yud (Y) of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) and ready to enter the tip of the Yud, which we know from the Arizal is Keter, the dimension where the self is reduced to virtually nothing and where we rejoin G-d in the whole, the oneness.
In terms of the Torah organization, the Israelites and the 10 Utterances were at chapter 20 in parsha Yitro of Shmot, paragraphs 54-62. Yitro (YTRV), Mose’s father-in-law, has the value 616, the same as H’Torah (the Torah), which when added to the kolel of its 4 letters gives us 616 +4 = 620, Keter once again, the crowning, highest sefira (dimension).
And 54, once again and as explained in the previous blog(s) connects us to the year 5778, when the tzaddikim have advised us Mashiach and the geula (final redemption) will come again, 66.6 jubilee years after the giving of the 10 Utterances in 2448 HC.
What do we mean by come again?
And what happened, seeing as they were already at such a high place 66.6 jubilee (3330) years ago?
The second question almost answers the first, but we’ll give the full answer after we straighten out the seemingly incongruent time time-line of the 5 portions, Yitro, Mishpatim, Terumah, Tetzaveh, and Ki Thisa; from Exodus 20 – 34, encompassing paragraphs 54 to 130, from the 10 Utterances to the second set of Tablets.
Just to put that into perspective, that span of the 5 portions with 22 letters in their combined names is exactly 22,000 letters, 5788 words, 441 verses, 77 paragraphs and 15 chapters long. And while, yes, the fact that 5788 = 5778 + 10; and that 441 is the gematria of Emet, truth, a synonym for Torah, the tree-of-life and the 42-letter Name; and that 22,000 letters is exactly the number of letters in the Hebrew alphabet, 22 x 10,000; and that 77 is the numerical value of mazal wedged into 5778, are all compelling reasons to assume this section of 15 chapters is very special, but there are other reasons.
For instance, the total gematria of those 22,000 letters is 1733324 or 299.99 x 5778, off by a minuscule (0.0044%) percent from exactly 300 x 5778, and moreover, when we divide 1733324 by 26, the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) we get 1733324/26 = 66666.308.
Now, all that is certainly astonishing and awe-inspiring in its precision and in the detailed planning that went into specifically organizing these specific 5 portions so that their combined encoding and energy would dictate to us the profound connection between them; the 42-letter Name (as indicated by it small gematria value of 173); the year 5778 prophesied by the tzaddikim for the arrival of the Moshiach (Messiah) and the geula (final redemption); the number 666 so prominent in the calculation of 5778, etc; the 22 letters of the alef-bet; and 26, the value of the Tetragramamton (YHVH).
Nevertheless, the Torah goes even further to strengthen this connection for us. In analyzing the 22,000 letters, we see that many of them reoccur very specific and significant number of times. Now, it would be natural for one of them to, even for two of them, but of the 22 letters, at least 7 of them do: the letter bet (B) reoccurs 1024, the number of different word values in the entire Torah, and 1024= 322, the tree-of-life; both the letter gimmel (G) and the letter tet (Tt) each reoccur 137 times, as in the numerical value of Kabbalah, meaning “to receive” and as in the age of the universe, 13.7 billion years; and the letter zayin (Tz) reoccurs 204 times, as in the value of tzaddik; and the letter chet (Ch) reoccurs 616 times as in H’Torah, as in the number of times Moses exact name (MShH) is mentioned in the Torah, and as in the value of Yitro(YTRV), the first of the 5 portions; and while Pe(P) reoccurs 358 times, as in the value of Mashiach, the final letter Pe sofit reoccurs 42 times; and the letter Ayin (A) reoccurs 954 times, as in digit #954 in Pi where we find then final of the three 5778‘s (please see There’s Nothing Random in the Universe for an explanation as to why this is significant for us).
It’s obvious that in these portions, where we’re receiving the 10 Utterances (10 Commandments); the 2 tablets twice; the laws of reincarnation (in Mishpatim); the instructions for building the Tabernacle; the Temple accouterments; and the vestments of the Cohenim all have a special design and special reason for us to study them beyond the obvious. But to do that we must untangle them first, especially the timing of the events, including when and to who G-d is speaking.
Another letter, the 8th to have significance for us (this time only in this context) is the letter hey( H) of numerical value 5, found 2060 times within the 22000 letters of the 5 portions. In the middle of the first of those portions, in the 5th verse of the 10 Utterances, at Exodus 20:6, G-d advises that his love will go to those deserved for thousands of generations (eternity/immortality), but the sins of the fathers will pass on for 3 or 4 generations. Here is where the choice was officially offered.
The choice given to the Israelites was the same as that given to Adam 2448 years earlier: to choose between the immortality of the tree-of-life reality, or the cycle of reincarnation and cause and effect of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Adam through Eve was persuaded by the snake to choose wrong. The Israelites were persuaded by the erev rav (mixed multitude) to choose wrong as well.
This is not surprising as the gematria value of erev rav (ARB RB) is 474, the same as Da’at, knowledge, and that of Snake (NChSh) is the same as Mashiach, so it’s easy to see how they were tricked. This is also why there are legends that say many of us will be tricked in these days as well.
By Exodus 20:15, the people showed where their hearts and minds were at: After hearing and seeing the 10 Utterances, the people trembled, kept their distance, and they said to Moses in Exodus 20:16, “You speak to us, and we will listen, but let G0d not speak with us anymore, for we will die if he does.” In their own words they chose death. G-d let it be Pharaoh’s words that brought about the death of the first born, and the people back then chose their fate with their words as well.
This is why chazal warned us to always choose our words wisely and use them sparingly. According to the Zohar, the words in Moses’ mouth were like a sword, especially when he recited the Shem Mem-Bet (42-Letter Name). They are like swords in our mouths as well, double-edged ones. It’s designed that way as part of the knowledge of Good and Evil, whereby we are our own judges. What comes out of our lips comes right back at us from another direction, as if time and space were warped (just as they are in the spiritual realm. And this is exactly why the Torah warns us to love our neighbors as ourselves.
Then after Moses implores them not to be afraid, in Exodus 20:18, when the Covenant of Abraham, which was given in 2018, 430 years earlier, was supposed to be fulfilled, the Torah repeats, “The people kept their distance while Moses entered the mist where God was.”
That was it. In Exodus 20:18, G-d fulfilled his promise with Moses that he made with Abraham in 2018. This is the last verse of paragraph 64, the numerical value of Din (DYN), judgment.
Synopsis of the next 4 Portions
From here on out G-d is speaking only to Moses, until in Exodus 24:1 G-d tells Moses go up to G-d and to bring the 70 elders, Aaron–the only names in the Torah associated with the word Moshiach–and his sons Nadav and Avihu, who we know from the Zohar and the Arizal would reincarnate into Pinchas and then into Eliyahu Hanavi (Elijah the Prophet), who we are told by chazal will usher in the arrival of H’Mashiach. Still, they were instructed to bow down and keep their distance.
Then in Exodus 24:3 “Moses told the people “All of G0d’s words and ALL of the laws.” And in Exodus 24:4 “Moses wrote down ALL of G0d’s words.”
Then after Moses, Aaron, his two sons and the 70 elders made the covenant of sacrifices they received a vision, at which point in Exodus 24:12 G-d summons Moses up to the Mountain to give him the stone tablets. After six days, G-d called to Moses from the midst of the Cloud on the seventh day. In Exodus 24:17, we learned Moses was to remain on the Mountain 40 days and 40 nights.
G-d continues giving Moses instructions for 7 chapters up to the Sabbath instruction in paragraph 123 Exodus 31:12, and then in paragraph 124 Exodus 31:18, G-d gives Moses the 2 Tablets of the Testimony, written by G-d. Meanwhile, in Exodus chapter 32, we learn of the Golden calf, and in 32:19 Moses destroys the Tablets that G-d had given him.
Then in Exodus 3:23, G-d grants Moses a vision of his presence (ET EChRY) of numerical value 620, that of Keter. This occurs just before G-d gives Moses instructions to carve out the second set of tablets–the first ones were G-d’s creation–and to climb Mt Sinai in Exodus 34:1 in paragraph 130, which happens to be the gematria value of Sinai.
In Exodus 34:6, G-d pronounces the 13 attributes and we are again told that his love will go to those deserved for thousands of generations (eternity/immortality), but the sins of the fathers will pass on for 3 or 4 generations. And in Exodus 34:10 G-d advises that He will make a Covenant before all Moses’ people. G-d once again dictated the laws to Moses and asked him to write them down, and once again he stayed with G-d for 40 days and 40 nights, then G-d wrote the words of the Covenant, the 10 Utterances on the two tablets. And Moses brought them to his people, his skin now luminous, his being from another dimension.
Two (2) is primordially indicative of a split, a dichotomy, divergent and juxtaposed choices.
So why 2 Tablets; why 2 sets of Tablets, why going back up 2 times, each time for 40 days and 40 nights; and why were there 2 visions; and why does G-d tell us 2 times that He will be with those deserved for thousands of generations and that those not, will have self-inflicted punishment (rectification) for 3 or 4 generations. And if Moses wrote down ALL of G-d’s words in Exodus 24:4, why did he have to write them down again later. And finally, the Golden calf incident which ruined everything, happened in paragraph 124, which is 2 x 62, the chapter we were at in the 10 utterances, when we were at Keter, 62 verses earlier.
It is because we’re witnessing 2 parallel universes that existed simultaneously until the 22,000 letter section ends at chapter 34, the 84th in the Torah.
As we know, 84, is the number that represents redemption (PD) and the fusion of the upper and lover 42-Letter Names.
It’s at chapter 34 that we official fall down from Keter and fall back down to earth/malchut, and being anew the process of rectifying the shattered vessels of the the second world, the world of tikun (karma), a process that necessarily has to take 5778 years, as hinted at by the 5788 verses, which included the yud (Keter) of simple value 10 for the 10 Utterances.
This yud is the separate universe given to Moses and the few that kept their doubts in check. This addition 10 is equivalent to .1730% of 5778, as in the 173 keys given to Moses and the small gematria of the 42-Letter Name.
Moses had just received the vision of G-d’s Presence and was now in keter, and couldn’t be with the people any longer, still it would take another 40 years before they realized he was no longer there. He had ascended, as had everyone else who had been ready.
How many? We don’t know, but it may be hinted at in the number of component letters in the Torah, which is 600,000-408 since we known from chazal that there are supposed to be 600,000 letters in the Torah and that there were 600,000 Israelites at Mt Sinai and furthermore that each of the Isralites souls have a letter in the Torah. That would seem to leave 408 Souls that have ascended to keter, or at least missing.
The first set of Tablets represented the world of Tohu v’Bohu, the first set of 10 Sefirot (dimensions) whose vessels overloaded and shattered because of a lack of interconnectedness. When the Israelites led by the erev rav feared, rather than embraced G-d’s words, their vessels could no longer hold the light and G-d had to destroy the them, which is why Moses had to shatter the 10 Utterances on the 2 Tablets.
And if we ask how could Moses destroy G-d’s work, the answers lies in that the spiritual realms to which the Israelites and the Tablets were anchored had already been shattered; otherwise, Moses could have thrown them from the top of the mountain and they never would have broken.
But, G-d did make Moses responsible, because He referred to them as the Tablets that you (Moses) broke. Moses chose to bring the erev rav with him and the consequences would last 66.6 jubilee years, many many generations. The lesson here is that regardless of our closeness to G-d, regardless of G-d’s overall plans for us, and regardless of His immediate intentions for us, we are responsible for our actions.
Adam, Noach, Moses and the End of Days
What did happen, though, was G-d had to start all over again with these people. In paragraph 125, Exodus 32:9-10 “G-d then said to Moses, “I have observed the people and they are an unbending (stiff-neck) group. Now do not try to stop me when I unleash my wrath against them to destroy them. I will then make you into a great nation.”
Here is a deep secret: The words “great nation” L’Goy Gadol (LGVY GDVL) permute into Yud Gilgul (YVD GLGVL), 10 reincanations, one for each of the 10 utterances. Is the Torah hinting to us that Moses (H’Moshiach) will reincarnate 10 times?
Moses could have chosen to be like Noach, the 10th generation from Adam and preside over a new beginning, but Moses was the 26th generation of Adam, connected to the YHVH of value 26.
This connection between Noach and Moses is more than casual. G-d’s wrath was revealed to Moses in paragraph 125 of Exodus and to Noach in paragraph 25, when in Genesis 6:13 “God said to Noach, ‘The end of all flesh has come before me. The world is filled with crime. I will therefore destroy them with the earth’.” It was only a few verses earlier when in Genesis 6:3 “God said, ‘My spirit will not continue to judge man forever, since he is nothing but flesh. His days shall be 120 years’.” The word flesh (BShR) is found 58 times in the Torah, the same as the the numerical value of Noach.
And who lived for 120 years? Moses did, and the Torah mentions no one else who lived for 120 years to fulfill G-d’s statement. And lets not forget that Noach had to endure for 40 days and 40 night immersed in water to cleanse mankind and the earth and Moses also 40 days and 40 nights immersed in the clouds on Sinai to do the same.
The Torah is drawing these parallels for a reason. G-d gave us the 120 years of Moses (H’Mashiach) in flesh. Bnei Noach (BNY NCh) also has the value of 120, so it’s not surprising that G-d’s announcement about his wrath was found in Genesis 6:13, which hints at the 613 precepts that Moses would bring, and if you add the 7 Noahide precepts, we get 613 + 7 = 620, keter.
This is all evidence as well that the yud Gilgul (10 reincarnations or 10 revolvings) also refer to the 10 generations from Adam to Noach.
But the most significant parallel to draw from this Moshe(MShH)-Noach (NCh) connection is the correction of the snake (NChSh) and Adam/Man (EDM), since the letters in their 2 names permute to NChSh, which is Nachash, snake and M’H, mah, which has the same numerical value as Adam (45) and according to the Zohar also as is the aspect of the G-d’s name (YVD HE VEV HE) that is called M’H of value 45 and that represents Man and the 6 sefirot of Zeir Anpin.
And because nachash has the numerical value of 358, this correction brings us Mashiach (358). Moreover, 45 is also the gematria of Geula (GEVLH), the final redemption.
It also warns us what we have to overcome for Moses (Mashiach) and to come again and bring the geula. The snake always finds a way, different every time, to work his way in and make us lose our focus. Adam blew the opportunity to stay in the tree-of-life reality, and 1658 years later and 10 generations later, the Flood waters covered the earth, and we began anew. In 2448, we blew the opportunity once again, and 66.6 jubilee years and 10 incarnations were given to us to reincarnate in flesh to find the means to summon the tree-of-life back into our lives.
The phrase “End of days” found in the Zohar Trumah 143, Ketz H’Yamim (KZ HYMYM) has the sofit gematria value of 1665, and if we take away the kolel of the 7 letters we get 1658, the year of the Flood, and if we add 1 instead for the kolel we get 1666, the year the generation of Shabtai Tzvi thought Moshiach was coming. But we also get 666 (the days) and 1000 (End).
The end is the beginning since alef (ELP), the first letter is also 1000, a concept that keeps coming up in spirituality and in many of our blogs. Just like the geula and Adam having the same gematria.
Have doubts about the Adam-Noach-Moshe connection?
Please note then that Moses passed on after 120 years in 2488, just before the Israelites entered the Promised Land and Noach’s Flood occurred in 1658, which is 1658/2488 = .666 of the way from Adam to Moshe’s death in the flesh. Also 2488/5778 = 430 as in the 430 years from the Covenant with Abraham in 2018 to 2448 and the reception of the 10 Utterances, which again comes full circle as 2018 CE = 5778 HC. And just to top it off, a circle has 360 degrees and 1658 + 360 = 2018.
The people, “ET H’AM“, that G-d refers to has the numerical value of 516, which know know from chazal is the number of times Moses needed to pray if he wanted to enter the Land of Israel and bring the final redemption, but G-d had instructed Moses to stop at 515. And as we’ve previous written, according to the Arizal these coincide with the 516 hours between Rosh Hashanna and Hoshanna Rabba.
And after Moses pleaded for them,the 4 Hebrew words, 4 verses later, “God refrained from doing that evil,” have a gematria of 516 as well when the kolel of 4 is subtracted, the connection being that G0d put off that decree to destroy the people in the same way that he put off the final redemption h’geula for 66.6 jubilees years.
It’s simple: The numerical value of h’geula is 50 and 66.6 x 50 = 3330 and 2448 + 3330 = 5778.
But as all judgments, they can be meted out with harshness or mercy. In this case, it was mercy. With the generation of Noach, it was harshness for as chazal explain, Noach didn’t pray for the people as Moses had. The lesson here is that mercy comes when we pray for others.
Back in paragraph 123, Exodus 31:12-17 when G-d is telling Moses to tell the Israelites to keep the Sabbath, making it a day of rest and a sign to you for all generations, “as an eternal covenant,” He referred back to Creation again, and repeated that He made Heaven and Earth in 6 days and on the seventh (Shabbat) “He ceased work and withdrew to the spiritual.”
There are 6666 letter bets(B) in the Torah up to that point, reminiscent of the value 66666.308 x 26, which is the total gematria of the 22,000 letters in this full section.
One way to interpret this is that at the 6’s He stopped working on us, and withdrew to spiritual, for in the very next paragraph, the Israelites and the erev rav decide they couldn’t wait another 6 hours, and in 6 verses they made the golden calf instead. It appears they stopped working on themselves first.
The word spiritual (vyinafash, VYNGSh) has the same gematria, 446, as mot, death. This double meaning is similar to Moshiach and Snake, in that when we’re not working (on ourselves) it can be like and can lead to death, or if we chose otherwise, it can lead to the spiritual, and our physical down-time can be spiritual time (not a dead rest time) to work on ourselves spiritually and thus recharge our physical world for the coming 7 day cycle.
The dichotomy on a grander scale is indicating that the 66.6 jubilee (Biblical 50 year period) will lead either to death (a permanent end) or to the spiritual realm (the tree-of-life reality) in the 7th period, and this time frame is hinted at by the 5761 letter nun(N) of numerical value 50 through this same location in the Torah, as in the year 2001 CE, when it appears the period of Oy and Ashrei began (at least physically) with 9/11. Spiritually it began in 5760 as Rav Abraham Azulai suggested it would, 18 (6+6+6) years before 5778.
If we consider chazal’s analysis that after 6 millenniums, the geula will happen in the 7th, then we have to look at the millenniums as elefs (thousands) each of the numerical word value of 111 and thus 666 or 66.6 equals 6 millenniums. And just to hammer home the point, up until chapter 32 and the 6 verses of the golden calf there are 5777 letter nun’s of value 50, and thus symbolically and spiritually related to the 50-year jubilee period.
The the thousands are found in YHVH. Jubilee is Binah. This the Zohar tells us. And the aspect of the YHVH that corresponds to Binah is Sag (YVD HY VEV HY). The 3 Yuds (YYY) at this level each have a value of 10 and when multiplied together form 10 x 10 x10 =1000.
And since there are 600,000 component letters in the Torah, the 5 component and composite yuds in YHVH similarly form 10 x10 x10 x10 x 10 = 100,000. To understand this you must see the two letters Hey (H) as their component dalet-yud’s 2 x (DY) and combine them with the letters vav (VV) to form yud (YVD) and yud (YVD). You then add the yud (Y) of YHVH and the the two component yuds (Y) from the Heys, and you get the 5 total yuds in the YHVH at the level of Malchut (Ban) which is the level the the 600,000 souls fell back to when it was decreed they needed to restart the correction process.
Okay, so maybe it was 408 souls that ascended to Keter, or 4 x 102, the numerical value of emunah (faith). And maybe that makes sense since 408 = 407 + 1 (Moses) and the square root of 407 = 20.17424, considering that 424 is the value of Mashiach Ben David and 2017 CE is the year 5777. But why not 620 souls?
Why not? We do know though that 620-408 = 202 as in verse 20:2 where the 10 utterance and the 22,000 set of letters began. Perhaps this had something to do with it.
And since everything to do with the special set of 22,000 letters, or embedded gift within the Bible, has to do with 10 and the power of 10, perhaps it has something to do with 408 x 6 = 2448 and also that the square root of ((600,000 – 408) x 10 ) =2448 .
The mystery of (EM).
The word Mizbayach (MtzBCh), the Tabernacle, whose construction is described in painstaking detail in the 3rd of the 5 portions has the numerical value of 62, as in all the connections to the 10 Utterances, including the 620 letters of the 10 utterances that were engraved on the 2 Tablets housed in the Tabernacle. And this all fits since there are 100 (an appellation of Keter) occurrences of the word H’Mizbeach in the Torah, 22 of them through chapter 34 and the carving of the second set of tablets, which terminates the set of 22,000 letters.
And what’s interesting about the Hebrew word for Tabernacle (HMzBCh) are the contained initials of the 42-Letter name (Mem-Bet) and the value of the remaining letters, 20, as in esrim of numerical value 620.
The word Eem (EM) of numerical value 41, as in the 41 letters of the spelled out name of G-d, Ehyeh (EHYH) , can translate to mother, Matriarch, matrix, or “if” or “whether,” as it’s used repeatedly in the laws (precepts) of G-d given in the 4 chapters subsequent to the 10 Utterances.
What makes it so interesting is that the word EM is found 62 times in Genesis, just like the Name Elohim, which begins and ends with EM.
And, not only is it found 77 times through the 10 Utterances, as in 5778; and 86 (the value of Elohim) times through chapter 21 (the value of Ehyeh); but it’s found 107 times through chapter 34, the chapter in which the second set of tablets was receive. And, of course, the sum of all the positive integers through 107 = 5778.
Now, the final point to be made today out of all this is that the year 6000, is when, more or less, most people expect the arrival of Moshiach. But the tzaddikim of blessed memory have arrived at 5778 and we’ve shown a preponderance of evidence physical, spiritual, comic, and primordial that the year appears to be 5778, so what gives?
What gives is that 6000 – 5778 = 222 representing the 2 divergent paths forged in the 22,000 letters by the doubts of the Israelites.
Thus we divide 222 by 358 (Mashiach) we get 222/358 = .620, keter. We shouldn’t question our faith, but only question in order to understand Question to go deeper, not to create separation as our ancestors did the last time they stood at keter.
If you follow the path of the 222 you’ll see that 222 x 26 (YHVH) = 5772, the year 2012 CE, and if you believe in the Mayan calendar prophecies of 12/21/12, you’ll find yourself deep in the trail of doubts when that year, 6 years before 5778, mimics the Israelites failure to wait 6 hours for Moses’ return with G-d’s Tablets, and the tree-of-life eternal reality.
We stood there before; we know the routine. This time, let’s get it right.
