Daily Zohar # 1527 – Behaalotcha – The secret of 12+7 cycle
Zohar Beha’alotcha talks about two Messiahs, Mashiach ben David and Mashiach ben Efraim. The first is the aspect of the right column and the sefirot of Chokmah, Chessed and Netzach, the second is Left column and sefirat of Binah, Gevurah and Hod.
Moses is the aspect of the sefirat of Da’at (knowledge), (a sefira that appears when Chokmah and Binah are connected). The Zohar says that Moses (named in the Zohar as Raya Meheimnah, which is Aramaic for “the Faithful shepherd”) holds both columns, and all the Sefirot of the Central Column, Keter, Da’at, Teferet and Yessod are connected to him.
There are two special verses in Beha’alotcha, (Numbers 10:35-36) that are separated from the other parts of the Torah by two reversed “נ” letters. Most kabbalists consider those two verses a separate book in the Torah. This makes the Torah have seven books altogether.
The first verse has 12 words, like the last verse of the Torah and the second verse has 7 words like the first verse of the Torah. There is a cross hold. The first verse has the word “ובנחה” numerical value 71 but the Torah reader is instructed to read it as “ובנחו”, numerical value of 72. The pronunciation is exactly the same but the energy revealed is different.
A complete cycle of years in the Hebrew calendar has 19 years, 12 regular and 7 leap years. Every 19 years there is a complete sync between the sun and the Hebrew calendar. Your birthday falls exactly on the same Hebrew date (moon based) and Gregorian date (sun based) as your birth date when you are 19,38,57,76,95,114….
The beginning and end are tied together here. We can see the two hands holding the Torah together. The two letters of “Nun” are like walls. From one side of the two verses we see the right column, the presence of the light of the Creator (Numbers 10:34) and the other side is the beginning of a new chapter, the nation with their complaints, their selfish desires and death (Numbers 11:1).
Within every 72 hours, we need to read from the Torah. This happens on Monday, Thursday, Saturday morning and Saturday afternoon.
Before the reading of the Torah a special process takes place. A person goes to the Ark (where the Torah scroll is placed), holds the doors or curtain with both hands and opens. At this point, the congregation begins to recite the first of the two special verses.
וַיְהִי בִּנְסֹעַ הָאָרֹן, וַיֹּאמֶר מֹשֶׁה:
קוּמָה יְהוָה, וְיָפֻצוּ אֹיְבֶיךָ, וְיָנֻסוּ מְשַׂנְאֶיךָ, מִפָּנֶיךָ
Whenever the ark set out, Moses said, “Rise up, LORD!
May your enemies be scattered; may your foes flee before you.”
The Scroll is taken out for reading. After the reading, the Ark is opened again and the Torah is put back in its place. This time we recite the second special verse.
“וּבְנֻחֹה, יֹאמַר: שׁוּבָה יְהוָה, רִבְבוֹת אַלְפֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל”
Whenever it came to rest, he said, “Return, LORD,
to the countless thousands of Israel.”
then we add a verse from the end of Lamentation, 5:21.
“הֲשִׁיבֵנוּ יְהוָה אֵלֶיךָ ונשוב (וְנָשׁוּבָה), חַדֵּשׁ יָמֵינוּ כְּקֶדֶם”
“Restore us to yourself, YHVH, that we may return; renew our days as of old”
When we check the first letter of the name of all the sefirot, we get the numerical value of 546 which is exactly “ישראל” 541+5 for each letter of the word “ישראל”. The last three words of the Torah are “לְעֵינֵי כָּל-יִשְׂרָאֵל” “in the sight of all Israel”. The first letter of the three words is spelled “כלי” (vessel). The last letters are “ללי” numerical value 70.
The vessel is the two verses in Numbers 10:35-36. The light is concealed inside the seven books of the Torah.
When all Israel (all 12 tribes) comes together as one and connects to the Torah, Mashiach will be revealed (ביהשמו). The two special (reversed) Nuns (נ) will drop and the Light of the Holy Ark will spread throughout the whole seven books of the Torah. The 19 (12+7) words will tie together the beginning and end of the Torah, closing the circle/circuit and flood existence with the light that awaits us from the day of Creation. It will reveal a new Torah that will be all about life and immortality.
