Thanks for your latest post “…It Has Begun…” We are looking forward even more to when the title will be “…It Has Happened…!!!” It is especially encouraging however that despite the many sever ongoing difficulties you are still so confident, writing “that the prophesied events for 5778 did take place and the process did begin then, even if the cloaked world of illusion did not allow most of us to see it. Yes, H’Moshiach, the chosen (anointed One) did arrive on G-d’s schedule, just as it was indelibly encoded in the Torah, recorded in the immutable mathematical constants, and written into our divinely given prayers.” Concerning the ongoing difficulties you wrote, “Like so many I have been locked in a wrestling match with the dark forces and it has been eating up so much of my time. I graciously accept all your prayers in this fight as I endeavor, B”H, to reveal many more of the deepest secrets and the revelations of light necessary for these troubled times.” Unfortunately, it is way way too easy to relate to that. Let’s all pray for one another and then surely our combined prayers will help! ———- Regarding the “many concealed Names of G-d hidden in the Scroll of Ester for our benefit,” it has been observed that a book’s authorship is often hinted in the first and last words. The first word of the Megillah is ויהי, Vayehi, “And it was,” in gematria is 31, which corresponds to the gematria of the Divine Name Kal, Alef Lamed, also 31. The last word of the Megillah is זרעו, Zaro, “his seed,” in gematria 283, and this is the same as the gematria of the significant expression in the Torah, ‘ויאמר ה, Vayomer Hashem, “And Hashem said,” 257 + 26 = 283. Interestingly, both numbers are prime numbers, 31 is the 11th prime, and 283 is the 61st prime, and the sum of 11 + 61 = 72, a hint to a special Kabbalistic Divine Name, formed by spelling out the four letters of Hashem’s Name to their greatest extent. Amazingly both of these numbers 11 and 61 are also prime numbers, 11 is the 5th prime and 61 is the 18th prime. More amazingly, the sum of these two numbers yields 5 + 18 = 23, yet another prime, the 9th prime. The combined sum of 23 + 9 = 32, which is a reflection of the number 23, and the gematria of the word לב, Lev, Heart. Interestingly the number 127, as in the 127 countries ruled by Achashveirosh, which is mentioned several times in the Megillah and even in the first verse, is also a prime number, the 31st prime. Amazingly the sum of these the three primes, 11 + 61 + 31 = 103, which is yet another prime number, the 27th prime. The combined sum of 103 + 27 = 130, which is a rearrangement of the number 103, both of which have a small gematria of 13, corresponding to the gematria of אחד, Echod, One. The small gematria of זרעו, Zaro, the last word, is 2 + 8 + 3 = 13 [another prime, the 6th prime], which is the reflection of the number 31, which as was said is the gematria of the first word Vayehi, and also the gematria of the word אחד, Echod, One, another hint to the One, Hashem. The gematria of the first word ויהי, Vayehi, together with the gematria of the last word זרעו, Zaro, is 31 + 283 = 314, the same as the gematria of the Devine Name ש-ד-י, ShaDaI, Shin Dalet Yud, which as was explained is so intimately connected to the Shma. Combining of the first and last words of the Megillah to yield this hint to the Devine Name ShaDaI is also reflected in the name of the king in the Megillah, אחשורוש, king Achashveirosh, which is said to be an allusion to the real King, Hashem, as also hinted the name Achashveirosh being considered a combination of the words Acharis V’Reishis, “Last and First,” which truly applies only to Hashem, as explained in many places. Interestingly, the sum of 314 + 127 = 441, the same as the gematria of the word אמת, Emes, Truth. The gematria of the second word of the Megillah, בימי, Bimei, “in the days of,” is 62, which is 2 times 31, and also the reflection of the number 26, the gematria of the Name Hashem. The two last words לכל זרעו, Lechol Zaro, “for all his seed,” have a gematria of 80 + 283 = 363, corresponding to the gematria of המשיח, HaMoshiach, the Messiah, likewise in gematria 363. The combination of the first two words and the last two words, yields a gematria of 31 + 62 + 80 + 283 = 456, and this is the same as the gematria of the combination of the two Divine Names Kel and ShaDaI, 31 + 314 = 345, plus one more for the Kolel, as expressed in the letter Alef, gematria 1, only with the Alef spelled out, Alef Lamed Feh, thus in gematria 111, since 345 + 111 = 456. The first three words ויהי בימי אחשורוש, Vayehi Bimei Ahachashveirosh, “And it was in the days of Achashveirosh,” are gematria 31 + 62 + 821 = 914, and this is the same as the gematria of בראשית, Breishis, “In the beginning,” plus Alef, 1, for the Kolel – thus also hinting to the first word of the First Book of the Torah, all the way through to the Last Book of the Torah, the Megillah. All of this is further evidence of Divine inspiration. When possible I’ll try to share some more relevant comments and feedback, but that’s all for now. Wishing you and all the readers a very very happy Purim!
