Bereisheit 18.19

כִּי יְדַעְתִּיו לְמַעַן אֲשֶׁר יְצַוֶּה אֶת־בָּנָיו וְאֶת־בֵּיתוֹ אַחֲרָיו וְשָׁמְרוּ דֶּרֶךְ יְהֹוָה לַעֲשׂוֹת צְדָקָה וּמִשְׁפָּט לְמַעַן הָבִיא יְהוָֹה עַל־אַבְרָהָם אֵת אֲשֶׁר־דִּבֶּר עָלָיו:  כ



Genesis 18.18

And The Lord Said, '...For I know him, on account of [I know everything], [so I know] that he will command everything from Aleph to Tav of his children and everything from Aleph to Tav of his household אַחֲרָיו after him, and they shall keep The Way of The Lord, to do Righteousness and judgment; on account of [I know everything], [so I know] I, The Lord may bring upon Abraham everything from Aleph to Tav of the Word Spoken upon him. 


Can any of us imagine what it is like for The Lord God Who Is Omniscient, Who Knows everything there is to know Says, in The Torah, 'I know Him'?


Gematria In Genesis Lesson Four.jpg


Genesis 18.19 is exoteric. When a Scripture is exoteric, there are many interpretations for each Letter, Word, Phrase, Sentence, Scripture, Chapter and Book of The Holy Scriptures. Each interpretation MUST agree with The Holy Scripture! Many translators do not include the translation for  לְמַעַן Lih Mah Ahn meaning 'on account of' or 'for the sake of', they must explain what  לְמַעַן Lih Mah Ahn is about. It is not so difficult when one considers The Lord Has already Stated, 'I know him.' לְמַעַן Lih Mah Ahn in this Word is about The  Omniscience of The Lord. לְמַעַן Lih Mah Ahn is explaining why The Lord Knows Abraham. The implication is 'I Know Everything' Therefore I can say, 'I Know Him.'  לְמַעַן Lih Mah Ahn occurs 243 times throughout The Holy Scriptures. Not every occurrence is translated the same. However  לְמַעַן Lih Mah Ahn occurs twice in This Scripture. Reuben Alcalay, The Complete Hebrew English Dictionary  {Chemed Books Massada 1990} p 1423


Translators also omit the meanings of אֶת Eht. Meaning everything from The First Letter of The א Aleph בּ Bet, The Letter א Aleph to the last Letter of The א Aleph בּ Bet, the Letter ת Tav. Aryeh Kaplan The Bahir (Row man & Littlefield Publishers, Inc. Lanham, Maryland 1995) pp. 108,109  When The Word אֶת Eht is used in The Holy Scriptures it is for the purpose of including everything from The א Aleph to the ת Tav.  The Word אֶת Eht is all inclusive.

Sometimes Words that are awkward and clumsy to translate are omitted by translators. I understand translators need to have an easy flowing text for readers. Having an easy flowing text comes with a price!! The readers pay the price time and again.


כִּי יְדַעְתִּיו לְמַעַן

For I know him on account of [I know everything]

כ20 י10     י10 ד4 ע70 ת400 י10 ו6     ל30 מ40  ע70  ן50 = 720


There are many many points to what The Lord is Communicating to us in This Scripture. It is like The Lord is Saying each of the following in Genesis 18.19:


Because The Lord God Knows everything The Lord can Say with certainty,  'I know that he will command everything from Aleph to Tav of his children and everything from Aleph to Tav of his household אַחֲרָיו after him.'


'I know they shall keep The Way of The Lord, to do Righteousness / Charity and Judgment.'


'I know that My Intent will be accomplished.'


'I know The Word, i.e. The Blessings I have Spoke regarding Abraham will be accomplished.'


The Word יָשִׁית Yaw Sheet means to firmly place or to fix, to appoint. The Gematria of יָשִׁית Yaw Sheet is 720. So when we read, 'For I know him on account of [I know everything]' we mystically understand The Lord Has Appointed it. The Lord Has Established it. The Lord Has Founded it. We can count on it. We can take it to the bank!


יָשִׁית 

Yaw Sheet / firmly place / to fix / to appoint

י10  ש300 י10 ת400 = 720


Consider what The Lord Established in Abraham. The Word  אַחֲרָיו Ah Chah Reh meaning 'after him.' Abraham followed The Instructions of The Lord and Commanded his children and the members of his household to do likewise. This may appear insignificant to those that do not understand or research The Holy Scriptures. Do you know the extent of Abraham's household?  


Genesis 14.14

And when Avram heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed everything from Aleph to Tav of his trained servants, who were born in his household, three hundred and eighteen, and pursued them to Dan.


Please carefully notice what The Torah is informing us. The 318 trained Servants were born in Avram's house. We do not know how old the 318 trained Servants were. However, we know that Avram followed The Torah. The Torah numbered men for war from the age of twenty and upward, Exodus 30.14. We also know that Simon was the age of 12 / 13 and Levi was the age  11 /12 when they adjudicated the kidnapping and rape of their sister Deenah by Prince Shechem in Genesis 34. We also note that The Torah States, 'And Avram took Sarai, his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their possessions that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Charan; and they went forth to go to the land of Canaan; and to the land of Canaan they came.


There are several points we know. We know this had happened before Avram was 85 years of age. We know that both Genesis 15 and 14.14 occurred on Passover. We know that there is a Fifteen Year span between Genesis15 and Genesis 14.14. We know Avram was a maggid, i.e. and Evangelist, who traveled between Eretz Canaan and Charan Teaching Mitzvot of The Torah. We know Avram had many followers. We know many souls followed Avram from Charan to Eretz Canaan. We know that during the 15 years 318 Male children were born in his house between the ages of 11 and 14. They cannot be older that 14 because the span of time is 15 years.


We are now going consider some basic numbers based on the above information.


It is likely an equal number of female children were also born to about 122 couples. Perhaps 2,282 children between the ages of 6 to 10 were born to 312 couples and perhaps 5,240 children between the ages of an infant to 5 were born to 707 couples. These numbers are based on each couple having only four children, i.e. two males and two females. Based on these numbers the estimated number of people that became part of Avram's household between the age of 70 years to 85 years are 9,299 people. Now we advance another 15 years. More individuals have joined Abraham's household. More children and grandchildren have been born. Abraham's household was larger than many cities in our age. Abraham's household may have numbered into the millions. Do the math. What do you think the size of Abraham's household would be? I don't know! 


When The Lord Says, אַחֲרָיו Ah Chah Reh meaning 'after him.' This is informing us that Abraham's influence was very great! His following was very large. 


אַחֲרָיו

Ah Chah Reh ./ After him

א1 ח8 ר200 י10 ו6 = 225


Bereisheit 17.19

וַיֹּאמֶר אֱלֹהִים אֲבָל שָׂרָה אִשְׁתְּךָ יֹלֶדֶת לְךָ בֵּן וְקָרָאתָ אֶת־שְׁמוֹ יִצְחָק וַהֲקִמֹתִי אֶת־בְּרִיתִי אִתּוֹ לִבְרִית עוֹלָם לְזַרְעוֹ אַחֲרָיו:  כ



Genesis 17.19

And God Said, 'Sarai your wife shall bear you a son indeed; and you shall call everything from Aleph to Tav of his name Isaac; and I Will Establish everything from Aleph to Tav of My Covenant with him for an עוֹלָם Everlasting בְרִית  Covenant, זַרְעוֹ and with his seed אַחֲרָיו after him.


I would like to know what part of This Scripture Catholics, Christians and Christian Messianic's do not understand. God Said, 'I will Establish My covenant with Isaac for an Everlasting Covenant'. The Covenant with The People of Israel is eternal. The Covenant is non stop!  God has NOT Established his covenant with the Catholic Church! God has not established His Covenant with Christians! God has NOT established His Covenant with Christian Messianic's! 


Jeremiah 31.30 - 32  [ KJV 31.31-32 ]

Behold [ End of ] The Days Come Says The Lord and I cut Everything From Aleph to Tav with The House of Israel and Everything from Aleph to Tav with The House of  Judah  A Renewed Covenant. 


Not like The Covenant [written on parchment and tablets of stone] that was cut from Aleph to Tav with their Fathers in The Day through the strength of My Hands I brought them from the land of Egypt where they broke Everything from Aleph to Tav of my Covenant even though I was a husband to them Says The Lord.


For This is The Covenant that I will cut everything from Aleph to Tav with The House of Israel after The [ End of ] Days Says The Lord. I will put everything from Aleph to Tav of My Torah within them and upon their heart I will write it. And I Will be God to them, and they will be to Me a people.


The difference between the Former Covenant and The New Covenant is the Former Covenant was written on parchment and tablets of stone. The New Covenant is written in our Hearts, in the Hearts of The People of Israel. The Torah of The Lord remains the same. The Torah does not change.


It is for these reasons I CANNOT accept the term, New Testament' as one that has anything to do with The People of Israel, The House of Israel and The House of Judah. Christian Messianic's FOOLISHLY write ברית חדשה meaning 'New Covenant' which they call The New Testament on a portion of their Bibles. 


It is clear from this discussion that The Covenant is Renewed with the House of Israel and Judah after The Time known as The End of Days. The Covenant, i.e. The Torah of The Lord, is written on the hearts of the People of Israel by The Finger of The Lord God.  


David wrote; The Torah of the Lord is Perfect in Psalm 19. Catholics, Christians and Christian Messianic's normally translate Torah as Law. The Torah is The Law. The Torah is also The Pentateuch; The Torah is the Five Books of Moses,  Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and  Deuteronomy, which is also known as The Chumash. The Scriptures within The Torah contain the 613 Mitzvot / Observances Given to The People of Israel by The Lord God. The Torah also contains The Covenant The Lord God has with The People of Israel. David said, The Torah of The Lord is Perfect. The Torah is flawless!


The Christian New Testament is not perfect. Dr. Josh McDowell, a Christian apologist in his book, states there are some 200,000 variants [errors] in the existing manuscripts of the New Testament.' Dr. Josh McDowell Evidence that Demands A Verdict (Campus Crusade 14th printing July 1977) pp. 41-47 - Norman L. Geisler and William E. Nix, A General Introduction to the Bible (Chicago, Il. Moody Press, tenth printing 1977) p 361


It is important for all of us to understand the intended meaning of ' I Will Establish everything from Aleph to Tav of My Covenant with [Isaac] for an עוֹלָם Everlasting בְרִית  Covenant, זַרְעוֹ and with his seed אַחֲרָיו after him.


Can we agree that The Word of The Lord is Forever Established in The Heavens?


Tehillim 119.89

לְעוֹלָם יְהֹוָה דְּבָרְךָ נִצָּב בַּשָּׁמָיִם:  צ


Psalms 119.89

לְעוֹלָם Forever, O Lord, דְּבָרְךָ Your Word is fixed in Heavens.


I must inquire, Does this include Genesis 18.19?  Does His Word include, 'The Lord may bring upon Abraham everything from Aleph to Tav of the Word Spoken upon him?'


It does! I must, therefore, conclude that there is no foundation for the claims by Christians and Christian Messianic's that The Lord God replaced His Eternal Perfect Torah for the Christian New Testament.


The Words דֶּרֶךְ יְהֹוָה Derek HaShem means 'The Path of The Lord'  The first mention of 'The Path of The Lord' is here in Genesis 18.19. Mystically we learn that The Path of the Lord was available to all from Creation.


Genesis 2.4

These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth בְּהִבָּרְאָם when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens.


דֶּרֶךְ יְהֹוָה 

Derek HaShem / The Path of The Lord

ד4 ר200 ך20     י10   ה5    ו6    ה5      =     250


בְּהִבָּרְאָם

Bih Hee Baw Rih Awm / When They Were Created

ב2 ה5 ב2 ר200 א1 ם40 = 250


The Path of The Lord has always been there for humankind. The Path of The Lord was there for Adam and Eve. The Path of the Lord is there for us. Each of us must be careful not to misinform, not to Bear False Witness. We must remember that 'The Fear of the Lord is טְהוֹרָה Pure.' This means we should be very careful about the claims we make in The Name of The Lord. We should be pure. The fear of The Lord within us should cause us to be cautious about the claims we make!


טְהוֹרָה

Tih Hoh Raw / Pure

ט9 ה5 ו6 ר200 ה5  = 225


Are we following after The Lord or are we following after religious teachings?


May each of us seek the Path of the Lord in the purity of our heart and do our best to follow His Word.

The Lord God Established during Creation that one should only mate with their own kind. Those that teach The Lord God impregnated Mary the wife of Joseph in the Christian New Testament, Matthew 1:18 DO NOT UNDERSTAND The Holy Scriptures Forbid a union between The Lord God and humans. So we will review why it is impossible for The Creator to have impregnated Mary, the wife of Joseph.


First, Mary was the wife of Joseph. Impregnating another man's wife violates The Holy Bond of Marriage Established by The Lord God.


Second, Leviticus 18 Teaches us about forbidden unions. We can understand it is wrong to have physical relations with animals, but some cannot understand why it is wrong for The Lord God to impregnate Mary, the wife of Joseph.


We have difficulty relating to The Lord God, so Scripture uses anthropomorphisms.


We misunderstand The Holy Scriptures use of anthropomorphisms. The Holy Scripture uses anthropomorphisms like 'The hand of The Lord' or, 'The hand of God' or, 'the eye of The Lord' or, 'The Lord God Walking in the garden' or, 'The eyes of The Lord' are not real. We call God our Father. We ascribe physical features to The Lord God. The more we personalize The Lord God we think of God as having human features. These are figures of speech. God is a Spirit. God does not have eyes, hands, ears, or feet like humans have.


Third, The Lord God is Holy. Our issue is that we cannot begin to comprehend The Holiness of The Lord God. It greatly distresses me to see the IGNORANT way humans use The Holy Name. Some humans write His Four Letter Name like their own. Where is the respect for The Holy Name of God? How is His Holy Name separated?


Dear Friends, if you are my friend... if you want to learn from me then DO NOT WRITE OR SAY THE HOLY FOUR LETTER NAME OF The Lord!! Isaiah wrote, 'they shall 'Sanctify My Name', and sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and shall fear The God of Israel.' Isaiah 29.23 Those who use The Holy Four-Letter Name of The Lord inappropriately do not understand what it means to 'Sanctify My Name.' Yet, we understand the importance and value of carefully handling rare antiques that are NOT holy!


The Lord's Name is sanctified by those separate and guard His Holy Name. His Name is not to be used by any of us!! The Lord's Name is so Holy that His Name is only spoken by The High Priest on Yom Kippur!! Why do we use the word HaShem, meaning the Name? Why do we use the Word Ad-ni in Prayers? It is because The Lord's Name is So very Holy!! When one fails to grasp the Holiness of The Lord's Name, they will not understand God would NEVER impregnate Mary, the wife of Joseph or any human!! Our purpose in this world is to sanctify His Holy Name. We do not write or say the Four-Letter Name of The Lord. You cannot be my friend if you do this.


Leviticus 11.45

'For I am the Lord that brings you out of the land of Egypt, to be God to you. You shall, therefore, be Holy, for I Am Holy.'


Some do not understand the concept of what it means to be Holy. The Lord God is Separated from everyone and everything. None of us can exist outside of a zone in which The Lord God has constricted His Revelation of Light so that we may exist. This zone is called Tzimtzum.

Aryeh Kaplan The Bahir ( Lanham, Maryland, Rowman & Littlefield Publishers) 1st edition, 2004 p xxii.


Fourth is the Separation of Kind with Kind


Genesis 1.11

And He, God Said, תַּדְשֵׁא הָאָרֶץ 'Let the earth sprout forth' Those interested in knowing The Truth should take not of The Word תַּדְשֵׁא.


The First Letter is NOT part of the Word דֶּשֶׁא meaning. Grass or to sprout forth. The Letter ת Tav frequently is added to the front of a Word as a Sign. The Letter ת Tav is the last Letter of אוֹת Oht meaning 'Sign'. In Genesis 4.15 we read that The Lord Placed a Sign on Cain. The Sign was The Letter ת Tav. Rabbi Michael Munk The Wisdom In The Hebrew Alphabet Mesorah Publications, Brooklyn, N.Y. 1990), p. 219


And The Lord Said to The Angel Gabriel, 'Go through The midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark [of The Letter Tav] upon the foreheads of the men who sigh and who cry for all the abominations that are done in its midst thereof etc.' This Letter Tav was written on forehead of The Righteous with ink. The Tav written in ink denoted תִּחְיֶה meaning 'You shall live. The Tav was written on the foreheads of the wicked with blood denoted תָּמוּת meaning you shall die. Sabbath 55a. The Letter ת Tav represents אֱמֶת Truth and אוֹת A Sign. So when we see The Letter ת Tav in front of a Word that does not begin with The Letter ת Tav, this is A Sign to us. What is אוֹת The Sign? The reader is informed by the Sign of The Letter ת Tav to stop and search for a hidden revelation.


And to the others, He Said in my hearing, 'Go you after [The Angel Gabrial] through The City, and strike; let not your eye spare, nor have any pity;  Slay utterly old men and young men, young girls, and little children, and women; but do not come near any man upon whom is the mark of The Letter ת Tav ; and begin at my sanctuary. In Genesis 1.11 The Sign of The Letter ת Tav is in front of דֶּשֶׁא informs us of the End of Days prophecy in Deuteronomy 33 of אֵשְׁ דָּת The Fiery Torah.


תַּדְשֵׁא

Tah Dih Say / To Sprout forth

ת400 ד4 ש300 א1 = 705


אֵשְׁ דָּת

א1 ש300 ד4 ת400 = 705

Aish Dat / The Fiery Torah.


Just as The Firey Torah will be sealed upon the hearts of The People of Israel In Jeremiah 31 'kind producing with kind' is sealed upon earth. For those who are interested, there is no way translators can translate The significance of The Letter Tav being placed in front of a Word. We return to Genesis 1.11.


Genesis 1.11

And He, God Said, תַּדְשֵׁא הָאָרֶץ 'Let the earth sprout forth' grass, herbs, from seed, Fruit trees [from seed] לְמִינוֹ each made after it's own kind [of seed], from seed that is within it on the earth and it was so.


The Lord God MADE each seed-yielding fruit tree after in own fruit kind. Mixing fruit trees is forbidden! Engrafting one fruit tree into another fruit tree is forbidden. Rabbi A. Y. Kahan The Taryag Mitzvot (Brooklyn, N.Y. Keser Torah Publications 1987, 1988) pp 161 - 162.


Leviticus 19.19

Observe everything from Aleph to Tav of My Statutes. תִּשְׁמֹרוּ Each of you shall guard your cattle. Do not mate to cross breed [mingle] to create a crossbreed. Do not plant your field with mixed seed. And do not mix a garment with [wool and linen fibers] with any combination. Do not put it on you! See Deuteronomy 22.11


Genesis 1.12 - דֶּשֶׁא עֵשֶׂב מַזְרִיעַ זֶרַע לְמִינֵהוּ

And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed לְמִינֵהוּ after its kind, and tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, לְמִינֵהוּ after its kind; and God Saw that it was good.


Genesis 1.21

And God Created the great whales, and every kind of creature that creeps which live in the waters, לְמִינֵהֶם after of it's kind, and every of winged bird, לְמִינֵהוּ of its kind, and God Saw that it was good.


Genesis 1.24

And God Said, 'Let the earth bring forth living creatures, לְמִינָהּ each after its kind, cattle, and creeping things, and beasts of the earth לְמִינָהּ each after its kind,' and it was so.


Genesis 1.25

And thus God Made the beasts of the earth לְמִינָהּ each of its kind, and cattle לְמִינָהּ each of its kind, and everything from Aleph to Tav of all that creep upon the earth לְמִינֵהוּ each of its kind; and God Saw that it was good.


Genesis 7.2 - 3

Of every clean beast, you shall take to you seven pairs, the male and his female; and of beasts that are not clean one pair, the male, and his female. Of birds also of the air by seven pairs, the male, and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.


The Angels Shamchazai [also know as Chazai or Hazai] and Azael looked upon the daughters of man.


Genesis 6.2

That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were pretty; and they took them as wives all those whom they chose.


Giants resulted from these unnatural forbidden unions between the Nefilim, i.e the fallen angels and the daughters of men. The World was destroyed because of them, Genesis 6.11. The point is that The Lord God Established each of us to have and enjoy physical relationships with our own kind.


Every reference in The Holy Scriptures of Angels is in the masculine. The Lord God permitted Angeles to take on the form of men, yet Angels were not men. The Angels Shamchazai and Azael were permitted to take on the entire for of man so they could be tested as man is tested. They failed. They became vile sinners. They were destroyed in the flood.


Fifth, God is Echad! This means God does not reproduce HIMSELF! Otherwise, He would not be Echad. The Lord God is NOT three in one. The Lord God is ONLY One!


It is for these reasons and other that the Lord God did not impregnate Mary, the wife of Joseph.

(Conclusion of The Torah Cycle)


First את

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.

Shemot 10.1-2

וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָֹה אֶל־מֹשֶׁה בֹּא אֶל־פַּרְעֹה כִּי־אֲנִי הִכְבַּדְתִּי אֶת־לִבּוֹ וְאֶת־לֵב עֲבָדָיו לְמַעַן שִׁתִי אֹתֹתַי אֵלֶּה בְּקִרְבּוֹ:  ב 


וּלְמַעַן תְּסַפֵּר בְּאָזְנֵי בִנְךָ וּבֶן־בִּנְךָ אֵת אֲשֶׁר הִתְעַלַּלְתִּי בְּמִצְרַיִם וְאֶת־אֹתֹתַי אֲשֶׁר־שַׂמְתִּי בָם וִידַעְתֶּם כִּי־אֲנִי יְהוָֹה:  ג 


Exodus 10.1-2

And He, The Lord Said to Moses, Go to Pharaoh; for I have Strengthened Everything From The Letter Aleph to The Letter Tav of his heart, and Everything from The Letter Aleph to The Letter Tav of the heart of his 

servants, that I might show these My Signs before him; 


And that you may relate [tell in book format] in the ears of your son, and of your grandson, what things I have done in Egypt, and my signs which I have done among them; that you may know that I am the Lord.

Deuteronomy 6.12

Beware lest you forget The Lord, who Brought you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of slavery.


Pharaoh was steeped in hard denial. Not only was he unwilling to acknowledge his sin of oppressing B'nei Israel, he increased the level of oppression. Pharaoh also denied the existence of God. 

Throughout this parshat we are constantly reminded that Pharaoh's heart was hard, that his heart remained set in preventing B'nei Israel from worshipping The Lord! His denial was a public denial! It was a sin against The Lord and against His people. B'nei Israel! 

He ordered his officers to afflict B'nei Israel! At each turn in the course of events, The Lord Tells Moses to remind Pharaoh and the people of Egypt.


'...that I am The Lord...' Exodus 7:5 


'By this you will know that I am The Lord...' Exodus 7:17 


'...You will know that there is none like The Lord, our G-d..' Exodus 8:6

 '...You will know that I am The Lord in the midst of the earth...' Exodus 8:18


'This is what The Lord The God of the Hebrews has said...' Exodus 9:1


'...so that you may KNOW that there is none like Me in all the earth.'  Exodus 9:14 


'...so that My Name will be declared throughout the earth.' Exodus 9:16


Long before this point, the end of the fifth plague, Pharaoh knew! Yet, he continued in his ways of sinful disobedience of The Lord's Commands. There are those who know what The Lord has Commanded yet in outright denial they continue in their pattern of sin. Their conclusion will be like that of Pharaoh and Egypt. They will cross the line as Pharaoh did. Pharaoh reached a place where he was no longer was able to control his own heart... his thoughts... his actions... The Torah tells us that God took control of them. God hardened his heart!  When Pharaoh had a choice he chose to oppress B'nei Israel. He chose to continue in his pattern of disobedience. He chose to continue his denial of The Lord. He crossed the line that no one should cross. He could not return. This is the danger of the one hardened in denial of The Lord and His Commands!!


Holy reader, a staff member at JewishPath posed this question: Can't a Jew return from wherever they are, from however far they have fallen? Isn't the Jewish light an eternal light? Well, the answer is Yes and No! Yes in the sense that it is possible. Yes in the sense that The Lord can draw anyone to him. However in the practical sense, No! Don't be fooled! When a tree is young it is flexible but when it is old the flexibility is gone. If it bends too much it will break. This should serve as a caution to us not to live on the outer perimeters of Judaism where God forbid, one's lifestyle may prevent one from repentance...

One may think that eventually they may change their mind, BUT that is not necessarily true.  Those like Pharaoh, who cross the line, or those who live on the outer perimeters may go to far. It is a very scary, dangerous place to dangle with one's life! I don't like this type of teeter.


When I was a child my Father, may he rest in peace, would give an illustration to the children at youth camp. He had a bundle of sticks that were smooth and dried out. He picked these sticks up along a beach in the San Francisco Area. He also had several freshly cut Aspen branches. Daddy showed the children how flexible the young Aspen branches were.  He would bend them in every direction with out breaking a branch. He show how stiff and how unforgiving the smooth dried sticks, he found along the ocean were. He could not bend them at all. Daddy made the comparison.  Daddy explained that when we are young we can go in many directions.  Then he taught, when we are older, we will be hardened. We will not be able to go in many directions.  He explained that now was the time to let God shape our lives. Then, again reminding us many years later it would be difficult, and possible impossible, because we would be to set in out ways. 


Ecclesiastes 7.13

Consider the work of God; for who can make that straight, what He Has Made crooked?


Each of us should remember The Lord Who delivered us from Egypt and be careful to walk in His ways...

Bereisheit 45.19

וְאַתָּה צֻוֵּיתָה זֹאת עֲשׂוּ קְחוּ־לָכֶם מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרַיִם עֲגָלוֹת לְטַפְּכֶם וְלִנְשֵׁיכֶם וּנְשָׂאתֶם אֶת־אֲבִיכֶם וּבָאתֶם1:1


And you are commanded [to have your brothers do] this work. [Each of] you, take wagons from the land of Mitzriam to your children and to your wives everything from the letter Aleph to the letter Tav to your father and bring them [to Mitzriam]. Bereisheit 45.19


In Parshat Mikeitz we discussed the Gematria 511 and the relationships to Osnat, Yoseif's wife, and her praiseworthiness and her hope of meeting her grandfather Yaakov, who placed a special inscription around her neck that saved her life. That hope, that praise is realized in this week's parshat. And in addition to this, we realize other important Gematrias. Ha Torah states that when Pharaoh heard of Yoseif's brothers and father, he צֻוֵּיתָה Tzu Vay Taw {commanded}... Pharaoh commanded that they take wagons from Mitzriam to transport Yoseif's relatives to Canaan and back to Mitzriam. He commanded that Yoseif's relatives should not be concerned with their belongings. He commanded that the best of Mitzriam be provided for Yoseif's relatives.


Tzu Vay Taw {Commanded}

צ90 ו6 י10 ת400 ה5 = 511


Holy reader, we observe Pharaoh reacting to his appreciation for Yoseif. We observe Pharaoh reacting to the painful separation between Yoseif and his family. We observe Pharaoh sharing in Yoseif's joy and in Osnat's joy.


Pharaoh gives the command that we began with, we observe the result of that command. Ha Torah states that the sons of Yisroel transported everything from Aleph to Tav of their father Yaakov and everything from Aleph to Tav of their children and everything from Aleph to Tav of their wives בָּעֲגָלוֹת Baw Ah Gaw Loht {in wagons}. Bereisheit 46.6 Baw Ah Gaw Loht has the Gematria 511.

Bereisheit 46.6

וַיָּקָם יַעֲקֹב מִבְּאֵר שָׁבַע וַיִּשְׂאוּ בְנֵי־יִשְׂרָאֵל אֶת־יַעֲקֹב אֲבִיהֶם וְאֶת־טַפָּם וְאֶת־נְשֵׁיהֶם בָּעֲגָלוֹת אֲשֶׁר־שָׁלַח פַּרְעֹה לָשֵׂאת אֹתוֹ1:1


And Arose, Yaakov from Beer Sheva, and the sons of Yisroel transported everything from Aleph to Tav of him, Yaakov their father, and everything from Aleph to Tav of the children, and everything from Aleph to Tav of their wives in wagons that Pharaoh sent to carry them [to Mitzriam].


Baw Ah Gaw Loht {in wagons}

ב2 ע70 ג3 ל30 ו6 ת400 = 511


511 = Tav 400 Vav 6 Lamid 30 Gimmel 3 Ayin 70 Bet 2


In the last chapter we observed this holy connection in relation to Osnat. In this chapter we observe this holy connection surrounding Yoseif and his dreams. In both instances we mystically observe the Gematria footprints of Yoseif and Osnat and Divine providence guiding... directing at difficult places in their lives through the Gematria of 511.

Bereisheit 31.1 - 3

וַיִּשְׁמַע אֶת־דִּבְרֵי בְנֵי־לָבָן לֵאמֹר לָקַח יַעֲקֹב אֵת כָּל־אֲשֶׁר לְאָבִינוּ וּמֵאֲשֶׁר לְאָבִינוּ עָשָׂה אֵת כָּל־הַכָּבֹד הַזֶּה: ב וַיַּרְא יַעֲקֹב אֶת־פְּנֵי לָבָן וְהִנֵּה אֵינֶנּוּ עִמּוֹ כִּתְמוֹל שִׁלְשׁוֹם: ג וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָֹה אֶל־יַעֲקֹב שׁוּב אֶל־אֶרֶץ אֲבוֹתֶיךָ וּלְמוֹלַדְתֶּךָ וְאֶהְיֶה עִמָּךְ: ד 


Genesis 31.1-3

And he heard everything from Aleph to Tav of the words of Laban's sons, saying, Jacob has taken away everything from Aleph to Tav of all that was our father's; and from that which was our father's has he gotten everything from Aleph to Tav of all this, the honor. And Jacob saw everything from Aleph to Tav of Laban's face, and, behold, it was not toward him as before. 3  And The Lord Said to Jacob, Return to the land of your fathers, and to your family; and I Will be with you.


Jacob actually heard Words. The Lord God can speak to you in a crowd of people and you maybe the only one to Hear His Voice and Words. On the other Hand Everyone present may hear His Voice and Words. A few select individuals may be included. However here only Jacob heard The Words of The Lord God. How do we know this? Ha Torah Says, And The Lord Said to Jacob.


One may wonder, how often does The Lord God Speak to humankind? Would you be surprised to learn that from Creation up until this conversation The Lord God is recorded as Having Spoke with only 13 humans? This is only the 36th conversation from creation until Genesis 31.3.


The Gematria of  וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָֹה אֶל־יַעֲקֹב Vah Yoh Mehr - HaShem Ehl Yaakov - Meaning And The Lord Said to Jacob. The Gematria of these four Words is 496. We can Mystically Observe that within The Lord God's Words is His Kingdom. Let's say it like this. Everything in the world and in the universe outside of The Lord God is constructed by The Word of The Lord God. Everything that exists exists because of the Power of His Word. I share this so that we may realize the ultimate power of The Lord God's Word. It is God's Word that holds every kingdom together...


The Words the ten phrases that The Lord God Spoke have maintained this universe from the beginning. Think of the power within These Words The Lord God. Think of the keeping power... Think of maintaining power of The Lord God's Words...


וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָֹה אֶל־יַעֲקֹב

Vah Yoh Mehr - HaShem - Ehl - Yaakov

And The Lord Said to Jacob

ו6 י10 א1 מ40 ר200 י10 ה5 ו6 ה5 א1 ל30 י10 ע70 ק100 ב2 = 496


מַלְכֻתוֹ

Mah Lih Choo Toh

Kingdom

מ40 ל30 צ20 ת400 ו6 = 496


We should think of The Lord's Kingdom with the same reflection. Ever since The Lord God Created everything from Aleph to Tav of the Heavens and everything from Aleph to Tav of the earth they were completed. Nothing remains to be completed. Nothing more remains to be done. This is the power of The Lord God's Word... So now we think about what it means for the Lord God to Speak to one of us as He did with Jacob. We reflect on that contact with The Lord God. Can we imagine the impact? Can we imagine the reslut of having Contact with The Lord God?
