Recently Rabbi Yisroel came to me in a dream.  I immediately recognized him.  

He said to me, 'Akiva write these words. Tell the readers each of us have relatives that believe in Jesus. Buy a copy of this book.  Read it then give a copy to the relative that believes in Jesus.' I awoke from the dream.  The time was exactly 6:13 A.M.

Thumbnail image for A Sincere Journey Ends Without Jesus Small Cover.jpg

My book is an autobiography of my spiritual journey.  Each of us is on a spiritual journey. We finish one spiritual journey then begin another.    What is a spiritual journey?  A spiritual journey is a path of life where by we develop, we grow and we mature.  A spiritual journey is often a long difficult process of personal change.

In my spiritual Journey I return to Judaism

The journey I discuss in my book began around 1990. My journey did not begin with the goal of returning to Judaism. My journey began with a desire to give my Baptist Congregation a historical view of Jesus' last six days on earth. My journey was very very challenging for me. If you read this book and if you walk in my footsteps believing in Jesus will become a challenge for you also.   The difference is I am on this side of the journey now.  The journey of my life can be a great help to you if you discern there are problems with the New Testament story of Jesus.

 

My goal is to simply share my story.  I am trying to be there for people who are at the crossroads I was at. When I began my historical review I was a Christian.  I was a Baptist Pastor.  Then I faced some life changing choices. Each of us face choices. If you are facing the choices I faced this book will be real helpful.  Having a friend you can write to will be helpful. I want to be that friend you can ask questions and discuss concerns with.  

 

In my book I discuss the choices I made and what the bases for these choices were. It was very difficult. You will feel my pain. How do we choose? What do we base our choice on?  Some of the choices I had to face is do I believe Jesus as described by centerline Christianity?  Is Jesus God? Is Jesus the Son of God? Another choice was do I accept the New Testament as Divinely inspired? Is the New Testament perfect?  If you feel confused... If you are frightened not knowing which way to go... This book will offer guidance and encouragement.

 

What I experienced did not happen by chance. My experiences were for a very specific purpose. After years of teaching on the internet to millions of readers I can say with certainty that untold numbers of individuals love God and believe in God and want to serve God but cannot make the story of Jesus as written in the four gospels work for them.  If you are there then what I share in this book is for you. When an individual is on this journey one of the first reactions is fear.  There are so many types of fears produced by Christianity. The fear of hell and the fear of rejection by Christians are two among many.

 

Questions arise like, what happens when I die?'  Is there life after death? Is there a heaven? Will I go to heaven? Who will be in heaven?  Readers each of these questions are discussed in my book. Don't be frightened! God has always had a plan for His Creation. His plan is not complicated.  I share some about His plan. O. K. it's time to make a choice. Do yourself a favor. Buy the book...


Dear Ones, we posted this in our B'nai Noach Torah Institute, LLC Blog because after you read my book you can write a review, make comments, ask questions etc.

Mysterious Signs Ad 1.jpg

Authored by Dr Akiva Gamliel Belk 



Dear Ones over the years through thousands upon thousands of hours of study many very special Gematrias have been revealed to me over the decades. With the assistance of those who dearly love our Creator, I have compiled a number of gematries through the first 10 chapters of Genesis. God Willing other books will be following...


What is Gematria? Gematria is a ancient study process used in interpretation of the Hebrew Scriptures by computing and comparing the number values of a Letter, a Word or a group of Words and their relationships. Gematria is a Greek word that has come to be recognized as the study of Hebrew Letters, Numbers, Words and Phrases  in The Torah. 


This is the first in a series of Five Books, God Willing.


Gematria is a unique beautiful key that when properly used can open doors to what is intentionally hidden in The Torah. Gematria is a form of Kabbalah, i.e Jewish Mysticism that allows some access to portions of the Scriptures we would like to know more about. Through diligent study and application of Gematria we are able to go deeper in to the hidden learn and more of what there is to discover about God, Angels, Humankind, Creation and much more. In this book we weave back and forth through the pages of the Torah exploring how to have a tranquil life.  The flood in Noahs age was not tranquil but it teaches us about tranquility. The world that then was not tranquil but we can sift through the pages of Hebrew for unique discoveries. 


The Bible is a Book of many mysteries for Christians, For Noachides and for Jews. Each will find my book to be exceptionally interesting as hidden truths are unwrapped and revealed for all to enjoy. 


Within the Bible are the Five Books of Ha Torah, Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. The conundrum within Ha Torah is different than within the rest of the Bible. Why? Besides what is hidden in Ha Torah there many quandaries. Within Ha Torah there is a system of Hebrew Letters which each have a numerical value. The numerical values can reveal many interesting, perplexing, bewildering and mystifying relationships within the Hebrew Letters, Words, Phrases etc. of Ha Torah that I discuss in this book. Some call this numerology. Others call this Gematria. I call this a study of Oh Toht / Signs.


When in daily study of the Five Books over the past decades various Oh Toht / Signs were unveiled to me as well as to other scholars of much greater stature. It is a special honor to share some of these signs in this book after years of preparation.


A great deal of Oh Toht is about relationships. Hebrew Letters share ties with numbers that unveil many principled secrets if one knows what to look for. No matter how much information is known about certain Hebrew Word or numbers only a small portion is known in comparison to the entire picture. I have been gathering, compiling and organizing for many years kah nah nah haw raw. Many years can pass between one discovery to another which forms a bridge between two discoveries. Revelations are the product of many bridges. Enclosed in this book are some of these special relationships. 


There is a special sweetness in sharing a Torah Gematria / Sign during a wonderful Shabbat or High Holy Day meal.

Course: Mysterious Signs Of The TORAH In GENESIS is written in the order of the Weekly Parshat in Genesis. Each Chapter / Parshat will have and audio discussion using Mysterious Signs Of The TORAH In GENESIS as the textbook.

Would You Like To Be Jewish?.jpg

My wife, Revi and I were traveling up the interstate when all of the sudden we came upon this huge sign. We were informed that we could not get off our normal place of exit.  It was closed for repairs. Now we would be forced to follow this detour that went on for miles. We eventually reconnected with the road we would have exited at. Oh relief, no more detour.  Road Closed signs and detours can be very frustrating.  


Many readers of Would You Like To Be Jewish know what it feels like to be placed on this endless road of detours towards their goal of converting to Judaism.  Some of you visited with a Rabbi who may have said, something like this, 'Why do you want to convert? Why do you want to be Jewish? We don't do conversions in Judaism.'  You ended up walking away disappointed, angered, exasperated, annoyed and very dissatisfied. Eventually you find a rabbi that agrees to do the conversion. Then you find out he charges thousands of dollars to do conversions and the conversation will take several years. Now you are steaming. You think, how can this be?  All these detours keep popping up! 


Some of the detours or road closed signs are the result of what we perceive Judaism to believe and to teach.  In this book we bring clarity.  We close the gaps and fill in blank pages.  I explain why we have issues with Jesus. We carefully review a few of these issues. When the reader understands our issues then our issues will be come the reader's issues. You will understand and identify.  We study inspiration and revelation. We discuss and compare the Hebrew Scriptures and the Christian Writings. Have you ever read the NIV Bible's Introduction to each Book in the Christian Writings?  Read Author and Date. Take away the speculation, the theories, the conjectures and the guesses and so much of what is left is blank.  We go behind the scenes to learn how the Bible was written and copied. What precautions were followed to eliminate errors etc. When one sees how this comes together road closed signs are removed. Individual objections... beliefs... doctrines that have held one back from their heart's desire to convert to Judaism diminish to a size where we can deal with them.


Dear Reader if you are supposed to return to Judaism or to convert to Judaism my book will help you.  If your soul stood at Mount Sinai to receive the Observances then this book will be helpful.  Even if you don't want to be Jewish but want to learn about Judaism my book will be helpful.  May the Creator of the Universe help each of us be the people we are supposed to be. Each book in this series will reveal greater detail as we study along together. I share a number of stories and insights. 



Would You Like To Be Jewish 2.jpg


What do Jews believe? There are many ideas about what Jews believe.  And there is a load of disinformation about what Jews believe. Teachers, Spiritual Leaders, Pastors, Priests and over 700 different religions all have ideas about what Jews believe. With all this speculation , how is one going to know what Jews believe?

Who do you think would be best qualified to share what Jews believe?

Dr. Akiva Gamliel translates a few words in this book that could change your life, make the foundation of your beliefs tremble and perhaps collapse or validate what you thought was true. Dr. Akiva Gamliel sheds light on the issues of Salvation, Sin, Repentance and many other issues. If you are a seeker of Truth this book will be a light on your path dispelling myths and untruths.

The Gospel Writers each offer a different perspective of Jesus last six days on Earth. They differ some.  It can be quite interesting and very challenging. Each goes to great measure sharing about Jesus last six days on earth. About 30 percent of Matthew, 33 percent of Mark, 30% of Luke and 40% of John share their individual views of the history of Jesus last six days of Jesus Life on Earth. The reader will learn a great deal of what happened from mornng to evening during the last six days of Jesus life on earth.


If you believe in Jesus this book will be very challenging. I started on this Journey almost 30 years ago with a desire to give my Baptist Congregation a historical view of Jesus last six days on earth. Since then I have returned to Judaism. I share some of the untold stories and fill in some of the blank pages... My journey can be of great help to you if you discern there are problems with the story the story the Christian Writers tell of Jesus last six days on earth.

Course Text Begins Here:


Dear Ones, within this week's Parshat there are Thirteen usages of The Word הַיּוֹם 'This Day'.  I would like to highlight several of the usages of The Word הַיּוֹם 'This day'.


Deuteronomy 29.9

Moses Said to The People of Israel, 'You are standing up This day, all of you before The Lord your God; your captains of your tribes, your elders, and your officers, with all the men of Israel, Your little ones, your wives, and your stranger who is in your camp, from the hewer of your wood to the drawer of your water; so that [each of] you should enter into Covenant with The Lord your God, and into His oath, which the Lord your God Makes with you This Day.' 


This Day was the Day The People of Israel were Standing before The Presence of The Lord God and His Representative, Moses, their Teacher.  The Word נִצָּבִים Nee Tzaw Veem means to stand up also to stand up for a principle. The Torah is Sharing more than a principle. The Torah Is informing us that the people of Israel were actively engaged. They stood for the principles the observances of the Torah.What we read goes beyond just standing up.   נִצָּבִים Nee Tzaw Veem at this time and place means enthusiastically standing up, enthusiastically participating and enthusiastically engaging. 


נִצָּבִים Nee Tzaw Veem Is more than mental assent. צָּבִים Nee Tzaw Veem is more than agreeing with what The Torah Says.  צָּבִים Nee Tzaw Veem describes our 100% commitment our 100% firm engagement our 100% enthusiasm for The Words of The Torah, The Mitzvot, and The Covenant. At that time, The People of Israel displayed a distinct sharpness like a soldier who has intensely agonized over his preparation for dress inspection. He stands out. He looks sharp and crisp Among other soldiers. This is what The People of Israel were like among the nations of the world at that time. Mystically we were in a place and time.


נִצָּבִים

Nee Tzaw Veem 

To enthusiastically stand up for a principal

נ50 צ90 ב2 י10 ם40 = 192


וּמָקוֹם

Voo Mah Kohm

And [being in a certain] place

ו6 מ40 ק100 ו6 ם40 = 192


בַּפַּעַם

ּBah Pah Ahm

[Being] In a specific time

ב2 פ80 ע70 ם40 = 192


Later in our discussion we will read in Ezekiel 38 how The Lord collects His People. The root Word for מְקֻבֶּצֶת Mih Qu Beh Tzet meaning to gather is קבץ. The Gematria for קבץ is 192.


מְקֻבֶּצֶת

קַבֵּץ Kah Baytz / To Gather - To Collect 

ק100 ב2 ץ90 = 192


Mystically we make this link where we, The People of Israel were before The Lord God in a specific place at a specific time appearing distinct and sharp as we stood up enthusiastically stood up for The Torah, The Mitzvot, and The Covenant.  


Where are we today?  We move a little further into our Parshat To another day and time When our heart turned away from the Lord God, When we served the gods of other nations, when the words of The Curse came upon us, when we were stubbornly drunk with our business and our self-importance,When we are scattered among the nations,When our land is desolate and when all things punishments have come upon us we will come back to our Spiritual senses We will return to the Lord and enthusiastically stand up again for The Torah, The Mitzvot, and The Covenant. At that Place and at that time we will obey all that the Lord Commanded us On 'This Day' that Moses Spoke to us.


This is about The End of Days That our Father Jacob spoke of in Genesis 49.1


Beresheit 49.1

1:וַיִּקְרָא יַעֲקֹב אֶל־בָּנָיו וַיֹּאמֶר הֵאָסְפוּ וְאַגִּידָה לָכֶם אֵת אֲשֶׁר־יִקְרָא אֶתְכֶם בְּאַחֲרִית הַיָּמִים


Genesis 49.1

And Jacob called to his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you at the End of Days.


Do we understand what Jacob spoke of when He used the term End of Days?    Please notice the date September 9, 2015, in The 2016 Bible Journeys Calendar. Do we understand what happened on this day? Do we know what this Day was? Astute classmates may say This Day was the first day God began His Creating of the universe. They would be correct. However, This Day is more than just the First Day of The Lord God's Creating. There were Six days of creation. Five days of creating were during the Last Days of the Twelveth Month Of The Original Calendar. These five days were prior to the Lord God resting.  In The Jewish Calendar, they are from Elul 25 - 29.


Let's return to The 2016 Bible Journeys Calendar. Notice Day Six of Creating. Day Six in 2015 is a Monday. Originally Day Six was a Friday. The Sixth Day of Creating is not part of The Last Days. Day Six is The Day of Judgment that we read about in Genesis Three. 


On The Sixth Day we are Taught Adam's dust was gathered from the location in front of The Holy Altar of The Holy Temple in Jerusalem. The Holy Dust was kneaded into a shapeless mass. In The Third Hour, Adams limbs were shaped. In The Fourth Hour, The Lord God 'Breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and Adam became a living soul'.  In The Fifth Hour, Adam arose and stood on his feet. In The Sixth Hour, Adam Gave Names to all the Animals. In The Seventh Hour, Eve was separated from Adam. In The Eighth Hour, Eve became his Wife. They consummated their relationship. Cain and his twin sister were born. In Ninth Hour Adam and Eve were Instructed In The Seven Laws that the universe is to operate by. In The Tenth Hour Adam and Eve sinned. In The Eleventh, Adam and Eve were Tried Judged. In The Twelfth Hour before the sunset and Sabbath began in Gan Eden Adam and Eve were expelled. Sabbath 38b


The point is on The Day of Judgment humankind departed The Garden of Eden. The Prophet Isaiah Prophesied that on this same Day, i.e. The Day of Judgment,  the outcasts among Israel will be gathered back.


Isaiah 27.13

And it shall come to pass on that Day, that the great shofar shall be blown, and those shall come who were lost in the land of Assyria, and the outcasts in the land of Egypt, and shall worship The Lord on the Holy Mount at Jerusalem.


This immediately follows the Shmittah Year. Our Rabbis Teach that the end of the Seven Year Cycle The Son of David, i.e. Messiah will come on The First Day of The First Year of the New Seven Year Cycle. Sanhedrin 97a


This will be The Year of Jubilee when The Land is Returned, all prior debt is forgiven, and all slaves are released among The People of Israel.


Our Parshat Speaks of This Day in Deuteronomy 30.1 - 7 Verse Five begins with the Word וֶהֱבִיאֲךָ  Veh Heh Vee Ah Kaw meaning 'to bring.' Please make a note of this because we will return to this point when we discuss Moses prophecy later in this discussion. Why? The Gematria points to The Jubilee Year.


Devarim 30.1 - 7

'And it shall come to pass, when all these things have come upon you, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before you, and you shall call them to mind among all the nations, where the Lord your God has driven you, And shall return to the Lord your God, and shall obey his voice according to all that I command you this day, you and your children, with all your heart, and with all your soul; That then the Lord your God will turn your captivity, and have compassion upon you, and will return and gather you from all the nations, where the Lord your God has scattered you. If your outcasts have been driven out to the farthest parts of heaven, from there will the Lord your God gather you, and from there will he fetch you; And the Lord, your God, will bring you into the land that your fathers possessed, and you shall possess it; and he will do you good, and multiply you above your fathers. And the Lord your God will circumcise your heart, and the heart of your seed, to love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, that you may live. And the Lord your God will put all these curses upon your enemies, and on those who hate you, who persecuted you.'


Some Teach that we do not know the Day or The Hour Messiah will come/ This is not entirely true. 


We know Messiah will come immediately following 'The Last Days. The last Days are 25 Elul through 29 Elul.


We know that Messiah will come immediately after the Last Days of the week. The Last Days of The Week Are Friday and Sabbath. The Lord God is precise.


Genesis 2.2 - 3

And on the Seventh Day God Ended His work that He had made, and He Rested on The Seventh Day from all His work that He had made. And God Blessed The Seventh Day, and Sanctified It; because that in it He had rested from all his work which God Created and Made.


We know The Messiah will come on Sabbath Rosh Ha Shannah immediately following the Shmittah Year. Sanhedrin 97a 

Some believe Messiah will come following the Seventh Seven Year Cycle, i.e. the 49th Year. [7 Years x 7 Years] - Some think The Messiah will come in the Fiftieth Year. Some believe the Fiftieth Year is the Year of Jubilee.


It is on This Day, i.e. Rosh Ha Shanah that we, The People of Israel gather to weep and seek repentance for our sins. 


We know The Messiah will come in The Last Days of The Last Of The Years according to Ezekiel 38.

 

Yehezekiel 38.8

מִיָּמִים רַבִּים תִּפָּקֵד בְּאַחֲרִית הַשָּׁנִים תָּבוֹא ׀ אֶל־אֶרֶץ ׀ מְשׁוֹבֶבֶת מֵחֶרֶב מְקֻבֶּצֶת מֵעַמִּים רַבִּים עַל הָרֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל אֲשֶׁר־הָיוּ לְחָרְבָּה תָּמִיד וְהִיא מֵעַמִּים הוּצָאָה וְיָשְׁבוּ לָבֶטַח כֻּלָּם:  ט


After many Days, you will have paid for [past sins], at the End of The Years you will come to The Land that is restored from the destruction. You will be gathered from among many nations, [By The Lord] to The Mountains of Israel that were continually desolate [of people]. And He will bring you forth from nations, and you shall dwell securely with them [your people]. 


Dear Ones The People of Israel do not posses all of The Holy Land The Lord God Gave to us. How will The People of Israel gain ownership and full control of every meter of The Land of Israel?  Possessing all The Holy Land will require a huge miracle. Today we are capable of receiving minute by minute information as it unfolds in our world. We know the present Day picture in The Holy Land of Israel looks gruesome. It looks like war is coming. There are disputes as to who owns all The Holy Land of Israel. These disputes must be settled! They will be settled!


Moses Prophesied, 'The Lord your God Will Bring you into [The Holy Land Of Israel] which your fathers possessed, and you will possess The Holy Land Of Israel; the Lord, your God, Will do good for you, and multiply you above your fathers.'


Devarim 30.5

וֶהֱבִיאֲךָ יְהוָֹה אֱלֹהֶיךָ אֶל־הָאָרֶץ אֲשֶׁר־יָרְשׁוּ אֲבֹתֶיךָ וִירִשְׁתָּהּ וְהֵיטִבְךָ וְהִרְבְּךָ מֵאֲבֹתֶיךָ:  ו


We know Deuteronomy 30.5 is a prophesy for our present age because of the Words  הָאָרֶץ אֲשֶׁר־יָרְשׁוּ אֲבֹתֶיךָ .


Time & Gematria - Possess Land.jpg


The אֲבֹתֶיךָ Ah Voh Teh Caw means 'Your Fathers'. Deuteronomy 30.5 informs us that after Joshua and The Army of Israel conquered all The Holy Land, then partitoned The Holy Land to each Tribe, then possed The Holy Land and Then because of our sins were displaced from The Holy Land of Israel and scattered to the four corners of the earth. It is from the four corners of The Earth that The Lord God Will bring each of us back to The Holy Land. 


Today more of The People of Israel live outside of The Holy Land than those living in The Holy Land. 


- The Lord God has not brought all of us To The Holy Land of Israel yet. 

- The People of Israel do not possess all The Holy Land of Israel that our Fathers possessed.  Today The People of Israel possess a portion of The Holy Land, so this portion of the prophecy remains to be fulfilled. The People of Israel must possess the entire Holy Land including all of the Holy City, Jerusalem. Moses prophesied, ' You will possess The Land.' 


The birth of Isaac was to give Abraham a son to inherit or to possess The Land of Canaan. The Gematria of יָרְשׁוּ  Yaw Rih Shoo meaning to possess is 516. The Gematria of יוֹרֵשׁ Yoh Raysh meaning to inherit is 516. In Chapter Five we discussed Mitzvot that require us to both posses all The Holy Land of Israel and to inherit all the Holy Land of Israel. In Chapter Five I stated there are some Mitzvot that cannot be Observed until The People of Israel possess all of the Holy Land. What does this mean? Deuteronomy 30.5 remains to be entirely fulfilled.


Dear Reader the clock is ticking until The Lord God Brings The People of Israel back into complete possession of The Land of Israel. What conditions MUST exist for The People of Israel to Possess all the Land of Israel? A question arises in regards to Jeremiah 33.


Jeremiah 33.12 - 18

Thus says The Lord of Hosts; Again in this place, which is desolate without man and without beast, and in all its cities, shall be a habitation of shepherds who make their flocks lie down. In the cities of the mountains, in the cities of the Shephelah, and in the cities of the Negev, and in the land of Benjamin, and in the places around Jerusalem, and in the cities of Judah, shall the flocks pass again under the hands of him who tells them, Says The Lord.  Behold, The Days come, Says The Lord, that I will perform that good thing that I have promised to the house of Israel and the house of Judah. In those 

Days, and at that Time, I will cause an offshoot of righteousness to grow up from David; and he shall execute judgment and righteousness in The Land. In those Days, Judah shall be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely; and this is the name by which she shall be called, 'The Lord is our Righteousness.' For thus Says The Lord; David shall never lack a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel; Neither shall The Priests, or The Levites lack a man before me to offer burnt offerings, and to kindle Meal Offerings, and to do sacrifice continually. 


The 'Again' in Verse Twelve is implied. Is this about two destructions of The Land of Israel? Some Rabbis were opposed to Israel becoming a nation in 1948. Why? Because, The Lord did not do this. If they are correct is there the possibility of another destruction? 


Those in control of The Holy Land must return The Holy Land to the tribes of original inheritance BEFORE The Year of Jubilee. In Joshua's Day, The Holy Land was taken little by little through the war at The Lord God's Direction. Perhaps this will be the course again. . . Then perhaps a second destruction awaits. I hope not!!


The People of Israel are in The Time of Blessing and the Time of Curse. Many of The People of Israel fulfill the Observances they can but cannot fulfill them all. This is the curse. We are stuck. The great Sage, Rambam cautions us to be careful about attempting to pinpoint the prophetic dates. Rabbi Nosson Scherman, The Stone Edition Tanach (Mesorah Publications, Ltd., Brooklyn, N.Y. 1993), p. 351Second Edition p 1299,


There is a process. I don't see the process alining with Holy Scripture at this time. This could change quickly! To possess The Holy Land means Time will be required to acquire ever meter of The Holy Land again. Time will be required to divide between Tribes. Time will be required to determine which Tribe each of us descends from.  Then the Tribal Leaders must settle descendants into their Land. Then after each of us are settled into our Land. It is then that each of us possess The Land. Then we can again begin celebrating the Year of Jubilee in The Holy Land Of Israel. 


By some accounts we are in the 49th year, I.e the Year of Jubilee right now, i.e. this Year. By other accounts, the Year of Jubilee will begin on Rosh HaShanah 5776 and conclude on Yom Kipper of 5777 FC. At night fall.


If in the very near future the Bet Din were to declare this to be the Year of Jubilee according to one of the above calculations Great miracles beyond our imagination would be required. The Bet Din cannot proclaim a true Year of Jubilee until The People of Israel are completely in possession of The Holy Land. In The Year of Jubilee, The Holy Land must be returned to the Tribe from which it inherited it. 


הֱבִיאֲךָ Heh Vee Ah Kaw meaning 'to bring' in Deuteronomy 30.5 is the Gematria of 44. The Word Jubilee is also the Gematria of 44.



וֶהֱבִיאֲךָ 

Veh Heh Vee Ah Kaw / And To Bring

ו6  ה5  ב2  י10  א1  ך20  = 44


בַּיֹּבֵל

Bah Yoh Vayl / In Jubilee

ב2 י10 ב2 ל30  = 44


לְבָבִי

Lih Vaw Vee / My Heart

ל30 ב2 ב2 י10  = 44


What is the Mystical meaning? The Lord God Brings The People of Israel to The Holy Land to possess The Land so we can return to Observing all Mitzvot, especially The Year of Jubilee. In the process of bringing us to the Holy Land The Lord God Circumcises our heart.


This is a discussion about Time and Gematria. At this Time, The People of Israel are still living in the Time of Blessing and curse. The curse is that we are not Observing all 613 Commands of The Torah. Many of us live outside The Land, Our hearts are not circumcised. We do not possess all The Land. We cannot pass The Land to our children as an inheritance. The Third Temple must be built. Articles of The Holy Temple must be restored. The Priests and Levites must be dedicated and assigned to their positions.


Messiah must come. There is the war that must be fought. The enemies of Israel must be defeated. Children must be born in Israel thus showing security. We must multiply.  Then when all is in order as The Lord God Intends it to be we will do Good. We will be the Blessing spoken of in Genesis Twelve.

Genesis 1.1

אֵת הַשָּׁמַיִם

Last את

Deuteronomy 34.9

צִוָּה יְהוָֹה אֶת־מֹשֶׁה



Dear Friends this lesson is from two excerpts from my Book entitled, God's Plan for Man From The Beginning that is to be released soon.


During the course of this book, I will point to Scriptures where the Hebrew is entirely omitted in English translations. Where the Hebrew meaning is changed in English Translations and where the entire Hebrew meaning is not translated into English. This may sound like a conspiracy, but it isn't. Translation is not an easy task. There are areas where misunderstandings occur. I think perhaps many of these misunderstandings result from a failure to maintain a clear path of continuity in translation. Continuity is extremely difficult to maintain. Every possible situation should be considered when translating to give the very best possible translation. One must sweat and struggle when translating. Translations should not omit, cut corners or determine that some details are not necessary to relate to the reader. Let's consider an example from the first Scripture of the Bible that we began discussing in Chapter Four. 'Most English versions of the Bible omit two VERY IMPORTANT WORDS in their translations. They omit the Words אֵת Eht.'


Bereisheit 1.1

בְּרֵאשִׁית בָּרָא אֱלֹהִים אֵת הַשָּׁמַיִם וְאֵת הָאָרֶץ: ב


Genesis 1.1

In the beginning, God Created the heavens and the earth.


This is the standard translation for Genesis 1.1 This is a good translation yet it fails to drive home the entirety of The Lord God's Creating. Most English versions of the Bible omit two VERY IMPORTANT WORDS in their translations. They omit the Words אֵת Eht. The Bible says, אֵת הַשָּׁמַיִם , Eht Hah Shaw Mah Yeem, meaning everything from the first Letter of the Aleph-Bet, the Aleph, to the last Letter of the Aleph-Bet, the Tav, of the Heavens וְאֵת הָאָרֶץ , everything from the first Letter of the Aleph-Bet, the Aleph, to the last Letter of the Aleph-Bet, the Tav, of the earth.


The First Letter of the Hebrew Aleph Bet is the Letter א Aleph. The last Letter of the Hebrew Aleph Bet is the Letter ת Tav. Please look at them below. Remember Hebrew is read from Right to Left.


ת Tav - Aleph א

א - ת

א ב ג ד ה ו ז ח ט י כ ל מ נ ס ע פ צ ק ר ש ת


Again, the Word אֵת Eht means 'everything from the first Letter of The Aleph Bet, The Aleph to the last Letter of the Aleph Bet the Tav. The Word אֵת Eht is used to emphasize entirety. It is all inclusive! Nothing is excluded! All is included. This is an absolute way of saying that The Lord God Created everything in the Heavens, Spiritual and unspiritual, matter and nonmatter. NOTHING is omitted! The same is true for The Earth. This is an absolute way of saying The Lord God Created everything in the Earth Spiritual and unspiritual, matter and nonmatter. NOTHING is omitted! Aryeh Kaplan The Bahir ( Lanham, Maryland, Rowman & Littlefield Publishers) 1st edition, 2004 pp 108 - 109


The Aleph Represents The Lord God. The Tav represents Truth.

אֶת

Eht Everything From Aleph to Tav

א1 ת400 = 401


תָּא

Taw / ' Cell / Little

ת400 א1 = 401


At B'nai Noach Torah Institute, LLC we translate Genesis 1.1 as:


Genesis 1.1

In the Beginning God Created everything from the first Letter of The Aleph Bet, The Aleph to the last Letter of the Aleph-Bet, the Tav of the Heavens and everything from the first Letter of The Aleph Bet, The Aleph to the last Letter of the Aleph-Bet, the Tav of the Earth.


This is much longer than simply saying, In the beginning God Created the heavens and the earth.


Once a reader understands the meaning of the Word אֵת Eht we modify it to:


In the Beginning God Created everything from The Aleph to the Tav of the Heavens and everything from The Aleph to the Tav of the Earth.


The problem translating Genesis 1.1 as In the beginning God Created the heavens and the earth. Is that it does not stress the entirety of Creation, i.e. all the inclusiveness of Creation! The clear understanding that nothing in Creating the Heavens or the Earth was excluded is very important. Everything is included. When this translation is clearly understood many religious teachings about life after death are exposed as false or misleading. Now we take this a step further. We discuss how this impacts each of us. Regardless of our individual concept of Heaven, we know Heaven is complete wherever Heaven is. Remember, the Lord God Created everything from Aleph to Tav of the Heavens. Do you know what this means?


This means when the Heavens were completed and The Lord God Rested from His Creating, each of our names were written in the Book of life. This means the Lord God has a place prepared for each of us in The Heavens. There is nothing more required. NOTHING was omitted in Creating The Heavens. No further preparation is necessary. It is done! Heaven is complete. Dear Ones, this also includes our salvation, our redemption from sin and eternal life in Heaven. Yet, unfortunately, everyone will not go to Heaven. We know the generations in Noah's Time were blotted out. They did not want to improve. Their hearts were continually evil. We will discuss this in Chapter Twenty-Five, Sin.


It is the Truth; God Has a special place prepared from creation for each of us. It has ALWAYS been this way. Who can describe the beauty and spender of The Heavens? We know the Heavens are so wonderfully prepared and arranged. Every detail was handcrafted by The Master Builder. Total purity and righteousness are in every street and home. Not a dot of sin exists. Suffering, discomfort and deformities are unknown. The Holy Place Heaven is arrayed by materials finer than a man can imagine. There is always a light on. Your mansion or Teepee or Igloo or cabin is prepared and awaiting your arrival. All that I am trying to say is when our day arrives everything is ready for our arrival.


In the Christian New Testament, we read a quote attributed to Rabbi Jesus, 'Let not your heart be troubled. You believe in God, also believe in me. In my Father's house are many mansions. If it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there you may also be. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.'


Again, our place with our name plaque on the entrance gate and the mansion doors, in The Heavens has already been prepared from the beginning of creation. Heaven is entirely perfect wonderful and complete. There is nothing anyone can add to this wonderful, perfect place. There is no need for anyone to go and prepare a place that has existed since the creation of the world.
