Tazria – When She Gives Seed

When a woman gives seed, and bears a male child…

אִשָּׁה כִּי תַזְרִיעַ, וְיָלְדָה זָכָר וְטָמְאָה שִׁבְעַת יָמִים, כִּימֵי נִדַּת דְּוֹֹתָהּ תִּטְמָא When a woman gives seed, and bears a man-child, then she shall be unclean seven days; as in the days of the impurity of her sickness shall she be unclean. (Lev 12:2)

According to the rabbis, if the man emits seed first, his wife gives birth to a female; if the woman emits seed first, she gives birth to a male.

Man emits seed first means the husband takes the initiative, and women emits seed first means the wife takes the initiative.

In humans, each cell nucleus contains 23 pairs of chromosomes, a total of 46 chromosomes. The 23rd pair consists of two X chromosomes in women, and an X chromosome and a Y chromosome in men.

The X chromosome is always present as the 23rd chromosome in the ovum, while either an X or a Y chromosomes can be present in an individual sperm.

The 22 pairs of chromosomes correspond to the 22 Hebrew letters being the building block of the created world, and the 23rd pair determines the gender of the child.

The parallel to the Hebrew letters is as follows:

Male XY יה
Female XX הה

This is because letter Yud is masculine relative to the letter Hey which is feminine.

When the Yud in the sperm enters into the Hey of the ovum, the result is a male baby. In contrast, when the Hey in the sperm enters into the Hey of the ovum, the result is a female baby.

In the model of Sefiort, this would indicate that a male baby is produced when Wisdom enters into Understanding producing Knowledge, and a female baby is produced when Understanding enters into Kingdom producing Kingdom.

The 22 pairs of chromosomes are in fact 44 chromosomes, where 44 is the gematria of blood דָם. The 23rd pair that determines the gender of the baby corresponds to the first letter Alef א, which is the secret of YHVH.

It is commonly taught that the letter Alef consists of a Yud above and a Yud below, with a Vav connecting the two, the gematria is 26, the same of YHVH.

When letter Alef representing the 1 pair of sex chromosomes is added to the blood as represented by the 44 chromosomes, Adam the man is formed:

  44 chromosomes 1 pair of sex chromosomes
Adam דָם א

The lower Yud would represent the “seed” of woman, whereas the higher Yud would represent the “seed” of man, the letter Vav represents the marital connection through which the two seeds are unified to form one new life.

The ascending Yud corresponds to the so-called “arousal from below” and the descending Yud corresponds to so-called “arousal from above”.

If the love is an arousal from below, this symbolizes Israel as the wife takes the initiative in repentance, in which case she will bear a male child known as the Mashiach.

If we substitute Israel for woman in the verse:

יִשְׂרָאֵל כִּי תַזְרִיעַ, וְיָלְדָה זָכָר When Israel gives seed, bears a male child

The gematria of these five words is 1540, which is the gematria of Israel יִשְׂרָאֵל when Alef is counted as 1000.

If we further substitute “the Mashiach” for the “male”, the gematria is changed to 1676, which is exactly the gematria of “and she conceived and gave birth in Holy Spirit”:

When Israel gives seed, bears the Mashiach יִשְׂרָאֵל כִּי תַזְרִיעַ, וְיָלְדָה הַמָּשִׁיחַ 1676
And she conceived and gave birth by the Holy Spirit וַתַּהַר וַתֵּלֶד בְּרוּחַ הַקֹּדֶשׁ 1676

While “she” at the collective level is called the “virgin of Israel” בְּתוּלַת יִשְׂרָאֵל, which denotes the return of Israel to her original state of purity, at the personal level she is known as Miriam the virgin.

When woman is changed to the virgin of Israel, the gematria is rendered as 2514:

When the Virgin of Israel gives seed, bears the Mashiach בְּתוּלַת יִשְׂרָאֵל כִּי תַזְרִיעַ, וְיָלְדָה הַמָּשִׁיחַ 2514

The average number of the above six words is 2514 / 6 = 419, where 419 is the gematria of I am Mashiach אֲנִי מָּשִׁיחַ.

2514 is exactly the gematria of the prophecy about the Mashiach:

And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the

fear of the LORD. (Isaiah 11:2)

רוּחַ יְהוָה–רוּחַ חָכְמָה בִינָה, רוּחַ עֵצָה גְבוּרָה,רוּחַ דַּעַת, יִרְאַת יְהוָה.

 

2514

When “virgin of Israel” is changed to “Miriam the virgin”, the gematria is rendered as 2100:

When Miriam the virgin gives seed, bears a male son the Mashiach מִרְיָם הַבְּתוּלָה כִּי תַזְרִיעַ, וְיָלְדָה זָכָר הַמָּשִׁיחַ 2100

The average number of the above seven words is 300, which is the gematria of “Spirit of God” רוּחַ אֱלֹהִים, which is the spirit that hovers over the water (Gen 1:2), which spirit is understood rabbinically as the Spirit of Mashiach.

The water hints to Miriam מִרְיָם which means bitter water, for she was misunderstood to this very day.

According to Arizal, the word מְרַחֶפֶת hints to the 288 holy sparks that died.

If we are to remove the “male” from the phrase, the gematria is reduced to 1873:

When Miriam the virgin gives seed, bears the Mashiach מִרְיָם הַבְּתוּלָה כִּי תַזְרִיעַ, וְיָלְדָה הַמָּשִׁיחַ 1873

Astonishingly, 1873 is exactly the 288th prime number, when 1 is counted as the first prime.

As established elsewhere Mashiach was born on Rosh Hashanah, and after 40 days of purification as decreed in Torah would place him on the 10th of Cheshvan, which was the day when Noach entered into the ark.

Why?

This is because the ark symbolizes Mashiach by which the entire family of Noach was saved from the judgment:

Shem, Ham, Yafet, Noach, ark שֵׁם חָם יָפֶת נֹחַ תֵּבָה 1343
Ark of Israel תֵּבַת יִשְׂרָאֵל 1343

If Israel does not take the initiative, then God will take the initiative in which case a female girl will be born:

וְאִם-נְקֵבָה תֵלֵד, וְטָמְאָה שְׁבֻעַיִם כְּנִדָּתָהּ; וְשִׁשִּׁים יוֹם וְשֵׁשֶׁת יָמִים,תֵּשֵׁב עַל-דְּמֵי טָהֳרָה But if she bear a maid-child, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as in her impurity; and she shall continue in the blood of purification threescore and six days. (Lev 12:5)

Who is she? At the level of Binah she is Shechinah and at the level of Malchut she is the bride:

If she bears a maid-child וְאִם-נְקֵבָה תֵלֵד 638
Mother, Shechinah, female, bride אֵם שְׁכִינָה נְקֵבָה כַּלָּה 638

The mirror image of 638 is 836, which is the gematria of “bride of Yeshua” כַּלָּת יֵשׁוּעַ. When the three number 638 is permuted to 386, it is exactly the gematria of Yeshua יֵשׁוּעַ.
