In this week’s Parasha Moses gathered all the congregation of the children of Israel:

וַיַּקְהֵל מֹשֶׁה, אֶת-כָּל-עֲדַת בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל And Moses gathered all the congregation of the children of Israel…(Ex 35:1)

Israel in Thought

The creation process starts with thought, followed by speech, and Israel was in the thought of God prior to creation, this is well established in Zohar.

The first word in Torah is Bereshit בְּרֵאשִׁית, “in the beginning”, and the last word in Torah is Israel יִשְׂרָאֵל, this is first in thought, last in action, and the ultimate end (purpose) of creation is to establish the Kingdom of God on earth with Israel as the bride.

The concept of spelling out a Hebrew word in essence is to reveal the secret otherwise hidden within the word which can be compared to a pregnant mother giving birth to her son.

If we spell out the 6 letters of Bereshit, representing the primordial thought, as follows, the gematria of her child is exactly 1820:

913 בְּרֵאשִׁית
1820 בית ריש אלף שין יוד תאו

1820 is 10 times the gematria of Jacob יַעֲקֹב, which is 182. This comes to teach us that the purpose of creation is to develop Jacob into becoming Israel, as 10 can represent the 10 Sefirot by which the light emanates, descending and ascending, in the analogy of Jacob’s ladder (Gen 28:12).

The thought of God prior to creation is also Torah, this is well established in Zohar. The gematria:

God (YHVH) יְ-הוָה 26
Torah תּוֹרָה 611
  637

The thought is considered one with the thinker, as the thought of a man is not distinct from himself until it further descends into speech, and ultimately followed by actions.

No matter how intimate one can be with his thought, the concept of thought nevertheless represents a duality, that which is separated from the thinker, as such, we must add 1 to unify God with his thought into a unity:

637 + 1 = 638

638 is exactly the gematria of the three fathers, this is the clarified thought, as opposed to the original thought:

Abraham אַבְרָהָם 248
Isaac יִצְחָק 208
Jacob יַעֲקֹב 182
  638

Among the three fathers Jacob represents the highest level, as he harmonizes the dichotomy of Abraham on the right side and Isaac on the left side. Still, this is only the beginning, as the ultimate end of Torah is to develop Jacob into Israel.

When Adam and Eve failed their missions in the garden, the stage was set for the process of rectification, which process in a nutshell is modeled after the so-called four chariots, corresponding to Chesed (Abraham), Gevurah (Isaac), Tiferet (Jacob – Israel) and Malchut (David).

Malchut is the end, the ultimate purpose of creation, which will be established by Mashiach, being the son of David, the King of Israel.

The rectification process in gematria:

in the

beginning

Abraham אַבְרָהָם 248
Isaac יִצְחָק 208
Jacob יַעֲקֹב 182
at the end Israel יִשְׂרָאֵל 541
Mashiach מָּשִׁיחַ 358
  1537

Adding number 4 (the four chariots) to 1537, the sum is transformed to 1541, which is exactly the gematria of Israel יִשְׂרָאֵל with the letter Alef having the gematria of both 1 and 1000.

This comes to teach us that the first thought, the end, as well as the intermediary process are all about Israel.

Mashiach in Thought

If we spell out Tav as תו, the first word in Torah Bereshit can be spelled out as follows:

  913 בְּרֵאשִׁית
1st level 1819 בית ריש אלף שין יוד תו
2nd level 3364 בית יוד תו ריש יוד שין אלף למד פא שין יוד נון יוד וו דלת תו וו

Now if the original word is the mother, the 1st level spelling out would be her son, and the 2nd level spelling out would be her grandson, so on and so forth.

The difference in gematria between the 2nd level son and the 3rd level grandson is: 3364 – 1819 = 1545, which is the gematria of Adam Kadmon אָדָם קַדְמוֹן, (i.e. if 600 is used as the gematria for sofit mem and 700 for sofit nun), which is a Kabbalistic term for the “likeness of man” that precedes the world of Atzilut (emanation), also known as Yechidah יְחִידָה, i.e. the Mashiach.

The 2nd level gematria 3364 is 58 squared, and 58 is the gematria of “glory of YHVH” כְּבוֹד יְ-הוָה, which is the “likeness of man”, i.e. the Mashiach. 3364 is exactly the gematria of below signature prophecy of Mashiach by Moses:

נָבִיא אָקִים לָהֶם מִקֶּרֶב אֲחֵיהֶם, כָּמוֹךָ; וְנָתַתִּי דְבָרַי, בְּפִיו,וְדִבֶּר אֲלֵיהֶם, אֵת כָּל-אֲשֶׁר אֲצַוֶּנּוּ. I will raise them up a prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee; and I will put My words in his mouth, and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. (Deu 18:18)

This comes to teach us that Mashiach is also in the thought of God prior to creation.

We have now established that prior to creation the following 4 concepts are one:

YHVH יְהוָה 26
Mashiach מָּשִׁיחַ 358
Torah תּוֹרָה 611
Israel יִשְׂרָאֵל 541
  1536

The average number is 1536 / 4 = 384, which is exactly the gematria of “Mashiach of YHVH” מָּשִׁיחַ יְהוָה. This comes to teach us that the four concepts are actually one, and Mashiach represents the primordial Divine thought of God, for the four letters of Mashiach מָּשִׁיחַ can be rearranged to mean: “there is mind” יֵשׁ מֹחַ.

Many Levels of Israel

Israel can be spelled out in 2 levels as follows:

  541 יִשְׂרָאֵל
1st level 1075 יוד שין ריש אלף למד
2nd level 2696 יוד וו דלת שין יוד נון ריש יוד שין אלף למד פא למד מם דלת

The spelling out of Israel at the 2nd level is 2696, the difference in gematria from the mother word (Israel) is 2696 – 541 = 2155, which is exactly the gematria of the prophecy of Mashiach by Isaiah:

וַיִּקְרָא שְׁמוֹ פֶּלֶא יוֹעֵץ, אֵל גִּבּוֹר, אֲבִי-עַד, שַׂר-שָׁלוֹם …And his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6)

This comes to teach us the 10 attributes of Mashiach according to the 10 Sefirot, as follows:

  1. Crown (כֶּתֶר) – this is “His Name” שְׁמוֹ, the gematria is 346, which is the same as “Will” רָצוֹן, which is in the Crown;
  2. Wisdom (חָכְמָה) – this is “Wonderful” פֶּלֶא, the gematria is 111, which is the ordinal number of the “beginning of wisdom” רֵאשִׁית חָכְמָה;
  3. Understanding (בִּינָה) – this is “Counselor” יוֹעֵץ, the process of counseling represents the clarification of information, which is Understanding;
  4. Loving Kindness (חֶסֶד) – this is “God” אֵל, which corresponds to the Sefirah of Loving Kindness, as well established in Kabbalah;
  5. Might (גְּבוּרָה) – this is “Mighty” גִּבּוֹר, both are of the same root;
  6. Beauty (תִּפְאֶרֶת) – this is “My Father” אֲבִי, which is Israel called Beauty in Sefirot;
  7. Eternity (נֵצַח) – this is “Everlasting” עַד;
  8. Praise (הוֹד) – this is the attribute of acknowledgement, the same word “Everlasting” עַד can mean “witness” עֵד, which is acknowledgement;
  9. Foundation (יְסוֹד) – this is the lower knowledge, the same word “Everlasting” עַד can permute to spell דַּע, meaning: to know;
  10. Kingdom (מַלְכוּת) – this is “Prince of Peace” שַׂר-שָׁלוֹם, for true peace only comes when Mashiach reigns in the Kingdom on earth.

The difference between 1st level and 2nd level is 2696 – 1075 = 1621, which is the gematria of Mashiach building the tabernacle (i.e. Kingdom) of David as prophesied by Amos:

אָקִים אֶת-סֻכַּת דָּוִיד הַנֹּפֶלֶת I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen…(Amos 9:11)

The difference between the 2nd level spelling out and the sum of Israel and the 1st level spelling out is 2696 – (1075 + 541) = 1080, the gematria of “Jacob and Israel I have called” יַֽעֲקֹב וְיִשְׂרָאֵל מְקֹרָאִי, (Isaiah 48:12), adding 1 to unify Jacob and Israel, 1081 is the gematria of Tiferet תִּפְאֶרֶת, which is Israel in beauty (Sefirot).

Israel with Mashiach

Mashiach is known as Yechidah יְחִידָה, which is the 1st level of soul (as there are five levels). At the deeper level, Yechidah represents the “singular” soul of Israel at the collective level. The analogy is head in relation to the body, in that Yechidah is the head, and Israel is the body.

If we multiple each letter of Yechidah with each letter of Israel as follows, representing the unification of Israel as one singular entity, the sum is 4654:

  ה ד י ח י
a 5 4 10 8 10
  ל א ר ש י
b 30 1 200 300 10
a x b 150 4 2000 2400 100

4654 = 13 x 358, where 13 is the gematria of one אֶחָד, and 358 is the gematria of Mashiach מָּשִׁיחַ, this comes to teach us that the collective soul of Israel at the level of Yechidah is Mashiach Echad, i.e. Mashiach is one, as the body may have many limbs, but there is only one head.

Combination and Permutation

There are 22 Hebrew letters used in creation, this is well established in Kabbalah. When 22 is added to the gematria of the first word in Torah Bereshit בְּרֵאשִׁית which is 913, the sum is 935, which is exactly the gematria of “building of letters” בִּנְיָן אוֹתִיּוֹת, i.e. the world is being created by God speaking through Hebrew letters.

In mathematics, the definition of permutation differs from combination in that in permutations, order matters and in combinations order does not matter.

Each Hebrew word is built upon a three-letter root which can be broken down to a two-letter sub-root. Since there are 22 Hebrew letters, there are therefore 21 x 22 = 462 possible permutations of the two-letter sub-roots. Since each two-letter sub-root has 2! = 1 x 2 = 2 permutations, there are therefore 462 / 2 = 231 possible combinations. This is well established in Sefer Yetzirah and the two-letter sub-root is called “gate”:

עשרים ושתים אותיות יסוד קבען בגלגל כמין חומה ברל”א שערים Twenty-two foundation letters: He placed them in a circle like a wall with 231 gates…(Sefer Yetzirah 2:4)

The phrase “with 231 gates” in Hebrew above is ברל”א שערים, the gematria is 853, which is the mirror image of 358, the gematria of Mashiach מָּשִׁיחַ. This comes to teach us that the 231 gates allude to Mashiach, which is open to the righteous nation, as it is written:

פִּתְחוּ, שְׁעָרִים; וְיָבֹא גוֹי-צַדִּיק,שֹׁמֵר אֱמֻנִים Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation that keepeth faithfulness may enter in. (Isaiah 26:2)

There are two directions (i.e. in and out) to every gate, as such there are 462 directions (paths) to the 231 gates, and 462 is exactly the gematria of “paths” נָתִיב. As discussed last week, the concept of “nativ” נָתִיב is a private and narrow path that goes through the strait gate (Matthew 7:14).

When the righteous nation enters into the 231 gates of Mashiach, the gematria:

Righteous nation גוֹי-צַדִּיק 223
231 (Gates) רל”א 231
  454

454 is the gematria of Jacob’s blessing to Ephraim as the “multitude of nations”, as follows:

וְזַרְעוֹ, יִהְיֶה מְלֹא-הַגּוֹיִם …and his seed shall become a multitude of nations (Gen 48:19)

Ephraim represents the dispersed 10 lost tribes of Israel, and the phrase מְלֹא-הַגּוֹיִם literally means “fullness of the Gentiles” (Roman 11:25), i.e. the preordained number of righteous nations that are to be gathered by Mashiach to enter the gates of Israel, for 231 can also mean Israel יִשְׂרָאֵל, as the letters of Israel can be rearranged to spell יֵשׁ רל”א, meaning: “there is 231”.

When Israel is thus joined with the “fullness of the nations”, the glory of YHVH can then be fully revealed:

Fullness of the nations מְלֹא-הַגּוֹיִם 135
Israel יִשְׂרָאֵל 541
  676

676 is exactly 26 squared, where 26 is the gematria of YHVH, therefore 676 represents the full revelation of the glory of YHVH.

As this union is only possible through Mashiach:

Fullness of the nations מְלֹא-הַגּוֹיִם 135
Israel יִשְׂרָאֵל 541
Mashiach מָּשִׁיחַ 358
  1035

1035 is exactly the gematria of the “ancient paths” לִנְתִבֹות עֹולָם, to which Israel was commanded to return to (Jeremiah 6:16). The same phrase can be understood as the “eternal paths”, which is the plural form of “nativ”.

With respect to the three-letter root, since there are 22 Hebrew letters, there are therefore 22 x 21 x 20 = 9420 possible permutations. Since each three-letter root has 3! = 1 x 2 x 3 = 6 possible permutations, there are therefore 9240 / 6 = 1540 possible combinations.

1540 possible combinations of the Hebrew three-letter root hint to Israel as the final product, i.e. when the righteous nation is grafted into Israel, and the entire congregations will be called Israel. For congregations in plural is קְּהִלּוֹת, the gematria is 541, the same as Israel יִשְׂרָאֵל.

If we use 1000 instead 1 as the gematria for Alef, the gematria of Israel can be elevated to 1540, which is the number of possible combinations of the three-letter root. This elevation can only be brought about by Mashiach, being called the “root”, i.e. the root of Jessie שֹׁרֶשׁ יִשַׁי.

In summary the design of the two-letter gates and three-letter roots at the deeper level hint to Mashiach gathering the righteous nation into the commonwealth of Israel (Ephesians 2:12).

It follows that when the righteous nation is thus grafted into Israel, Mashiach is ultimately revealed:

Israel יִשְׂרָאֵל 541
Root שֹׁרֶשׁ 800
Nation גּוֹי 19
Gate שַׁעַר 570
  1930

1930 is the gematria of Yeshua when the name is revealed progressively and concealed regressively, as follows:

386 יֵשׁוּעַ
1930 י יש ישו ישוע ישוע שוע וע ע

Moses Gathered Israel

In this week’s Parasha, the first two Hebrew words “And Moses gathered” וַיַּקְהֵל מֹשֶׁה has a gematria of 496, which is the gematria of Kingdom מַלְכוּת.

This comes to teach us that when Moses gathered, it hints to Mashiach gathering the righteous nations into Israel to build the Kingdom of God on earth.

As such, we can substitute Mashiach for Moses in this verse in order to reveal the secret:

וַיַּקְהֵל מָּשִׁיחַ, אֶת-כָּל-עֲדַת בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל And Mashiach gathered all the congregation of the children of Israel…(revealed version)

The gematria for above “revealed” version is 2037, which is exactly the gematria for righteous nation entering the gates:

פִּתְחוּ, שְׁעָרִים; וְיָבֹא גוֹי-צַדִּיק,שֹׁמֵר אֱמֻנִים Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation that keepeth faithfulness may enter in. (Isaiah 26:2)

 

This comes to teach us that the righteous nation will be gathered by Mashiach into the commonwealth of Israel.

When the righteous nation is spelled out in full as follows, the gematria is 949, which is exactly the gematria of “love of Israel” אַהֲבַת יִשְׂרָאֵל. This comes to teach us that the sign of the righteous nation is the love of Israel:

  גוֹי-צַדִּיק
949 גמל וו יוד צדיק דלת יוד קוף

When Israel (spelled out) is joined with the righteous nation (spelled out), the sum is 2024:

1075 יוד שין ריש אלף למד  Israel (spelled out)
949 גמל וו יוד צדיק דלת יוד קוף righteous nation (spelled out)
2024

This is exactly the gematria of the original verse in Torah when Moses gathered the children of Israel:

וַיַּקְהֵל מֹשֶׁה, אֶת-כָּל-עֲדַת בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל And Moses gathered all the congregation of the children of Israel…(Ex 35:1)

 

This comes to teach us that indeed the righteous nation will be gathered into Israel by Mashiach.

The Secret from the Beginning

It is now clear that the inclusion of the righteous nation into Israel is a “secret” which had been hidden by God from the beginning of the world (Ephesians 3:10). The secret in a nutshell is that Israel and the righteous nations are partakers of the same promise to Abraham, i.e. the inheritance, through Mashiach (Ephesians 3:6).

If this is the case, where can we find this secret being hidden in Torah?

The logical place to start would be the first word in Torah, Bereshit בְּרֵאשִׁית, which means “in the beginning”. At the simplest level, the 6 letters can be rearranged to spell בֵּית-רֹאשׁ, meaning the “house of the head”, i.e. the “house of the first-born”.

At the simplest level, the “house of the first-born” is Israel who is called the first-born of God (Ex 4:22).

Let’s now reveal the secret of “head” רֹאשׁ, as follows:

The “atbash” is an encoding system, by which the first letter Resh ר can be revealed as a Gimel ג. Once this step is complete, the next step is to break down the three letters into their components. Based on rabbinical tradition (The Hebrew Letters, Rabbi Yitzchak Ginsburgh, p54, p26, p313), each letter can be broken down into two components, i.e. Yud, and Vav, as follows:

  ש א ג
  ייי-ווו-י י-ו-י ו-י
100 58 26 16

The total gematria at the component level is 100, which denotes completion and perfection (10 squared and 10 Sefirot), specifically:

The first letter Gimel ג hints to Goyi גּוֹי, meaning “nation”, in fact the word is made up exactly of Gimel with her two components (ו-י).

The second letter Alef א hints to Israel (Jacob), as the form of Alef is made up of one diagonal Vav with one descending Yud and one ascending Yud, symbolizing Jacob’s ladder. Additionally, if we use 1000 as the gematria for Alef, with the addition of the gematria of her three components (י-ו-י), the sum becomes 1026, which is exactly the gematria of this verse about Jacob being the inheritance of God:

כִּי חֵלֶק יְהוָה, עַמּוֹ יַעֲקֹב, חֶבֶל נַחֲלָתוֹ For the portion of the LORD is His people, Jacob the lot of His inheritance. (Deu 32:9)

The third letter Shin ש hints to Mashiach, this is because Shin has a gematria of 300, with the addition of 58 as the gematria of her 7 components (ייי-ווו-י), the revealed gematria for Shin is 358, exactly that of Mashiach מָּשִׁיחַ.

This comes to teach us that the nation being grafted into Israel through Mashiach is the secret that was hidden by God from the beginning of creation, in the first word Bereshit.

The gematria of nation גּוֹי is 19, which is the 9th prime number (if 1 is counted as the 1st prime);

The gematria of Israel יִשְׂרָאֵל is 541, which is the 101st prime number;

101 + 9 = 110, and the 110th prime number is 599, adding 1 for Mashiach to unify the union, 600 is exactly the gematria of Israel and Nations (plural):

Israel יִשְׂרָאֵל 541
Nations גוֹיִם 59
  600

600 is also the gematria of “the inheritance of the servants of YHVH” נַחֲלַת עַבְדֵי יְ-הוָה (Isaiah 54:17), in which phrase, the word servants is plural, alluding to the union of Israel and nations.

Israel is One Nation

The first two Hebrew words “And Moses gathered” וַיַּקְהֵל מֹשֶׁה has a gematria is 496, which is the gematria of Kingdom מַלְכוּת, 496 is the triangle number of 31 (i.e. the sum of integer from 1 to 31), and 31 is the gematria of God אֵל. The concept of triangle number therefore represents a process of construction, the building of Kingdom, as it were, hence “Moses gathered”, fittingly.

If the triangle number represents the process of construction, the square of the same number would represent the completion of the process, which would be Kingdom of God on earth.

King David in praising Israel said: And what one nation in the earth is like your people Israel (1 Chronicle 17:21) which in Hebrew is: וּמִי כְּעַמְּךָ יִשְׂרָאֵל, גּוֹי אֶחָד בָּאָרֶץ. Now the phrase יִשְׂרָאֵל, גּוֹי אֶחָד, can be understood hyperliterally as: Israel and Nation is one, as the result of the gathering of Mashiach. It follows that when Israel and nation is being gathered to Mashiach in this matter, the Kingdom of God is at hand:

Israel and nation is one יִשְׂרָאֵל, גּוֹי אֶחָד 573
To Mashiach לִמְשִׁיחַ 388
  961

961 is exactly 31 squared, the completion of the building process as started by Moses in this week’s Parasha.
