בְּרֵאשִׁית, “In the Beginning”, the first word of the Torah with 6 letters that represent the entire creation. The Zohar in this last section of Tikkunei Zohar reveals to us that it is also a reference to the archangel Metatron.
“וַיֵּדַע קַיִן אֶת-אִשְׁתּוֹ, וַתַּהַר וַתֵּלֶד אֶת-חֲנוֹךְ ”
“And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bore Chanoch”
“וַיְחִי-יֶרֶד, שְׁתַּיִם וְשִׁשִּׁים שָׁנָה וּמְאַת שָׁנָה; וַיּוֹלֶד, אֶת-חֲנוֹךְ ”
“And Jared lived a hundred sixty and two years, and begot Chanoch”
(The name Chanoch , חֲנוֹךְ, is translated in most English translation as Enoch.
Please remember that ALL languages in the world are systems of communication. A translated Bible, reduces its value to a simple story told from one person to another. Always read or scan the Torah verses quoted in the commentaries. There is ONLY one Hebrew source of the Bible and dozens in many other languages. Some of them were translated from the English version, not the Hebrew.)
The first Chanoch, came from the seed of Cain and was only negative. The second Chanoch came from the line of Seth and was only positive.
Like the way Earth completes a circle around the sun in 365 days, Chanoch followed the ways of YHVH for 365 years. For that dedication he was taken to serve God as archangel and was given the name of מטטרו”ן, Metatron. He ascended to heavens in a flame of fire like Elijah the prophet.
We should not speak out names of angels. In this case we can say ‘angel Metat’ instead of the full name.
The numerical value of the name is 314, same as שדי, whch is the name of God that we put on the Mezuzah at the door post to protect from negativity entering our dweling place. It is same as the mathematical number of Pi, 3.14, that is related to the circle, a number that never ends and never repeats!
The closest number to it is 22/7 that represents the energy cycle of the week with the 22 letters of the Hebrew Alef-Bet that propels everything in Creation.
Metatron is the most important angel when we want to have our prayers answered. He came from the finite world to the endless and is the one that processes the prayers before letting them pass to higher levels.
Keep your prayers and consciousness pure and follow the ways of God, even if it takes 365 years (Several life times).
