The Shadow of the Dung of the Jackass

 Many years ago in the early first year and a half of this blog, I wrote a post quoting the Gemorrah in Sanhedrin 98b in which I discussed The Dung of a Jackass in the light of Rav Ezriel Tauber's sefer Days Are Coming.  In that book Rav Tauber brought down that there will come a moment at the End of Days when the physical stuff of the Universe (or at least our quadrant of the Universe where we were placed to refine) could no longer be refined.  I postulated in that post that one of the reasons for some of the Rabbis in our generation for making the error of joining in with Sharon for IS 290 million shekels was because we had already arrived at the point of peering through the dung of the Jackass, the Chomer (the physical stuff) of history after all the physicality of the world that could be refined has been refined for a G-dly purpose from the moment that Avraham stood in opposition to Nimrod and the 70 nations in the Year 2000 from Adam.  Because it was the Shmittah cycle of Gog ben Gog Bush Jr., it seemed that we had arrived at the point where the physicality of the World that we were meant to perfect, like dung, could no longer be refined.  In reality, we were almost at that point but not quite there.  In the last two Shmittah cycles since the Financial Collapse of 2008, the end of the Gog ben Gog Shmittah cycle, apparently there were still a few drops of physicality to refine, for the simanim of reaching that point given over by the Vilna Gaon (to be discussed below) had not yet occurred.  As has been discussed in recent posts on this blog, the Gog ben Gog Shmittah cycle ended on Hoshana Rabbah 5769 seven and a half years before two thirds of Mankind fell below the 49th level of impurity during the lead up to Shavuot of the potential Jubilee year 5776 where the following condition from Zekharia 13 for B'itah Redemption was reached:

 וְהָיָה בְכָל-הָאָרֶץ, נְאֻם-יְהוָה, פִּי-שְׁנַיִם בָּהּ, יִכָּרְתוּ יִגְוָעוּ; וְהַשְּׁלִשִׁית, יִוָּתֶר בָּהּ. And it shall come to pass, that in all the earth, saith the LORD, two parts (out of three) therein shall be cut off and die; but the (final) third shall be left therein.  I would suggest rereading the recent post where this was discussed in detail especially concentrating on the 98 year (2 Jubilee cycle) Collapse into Reprobate oblivion for 2/3rds of Mankind at the end of which took place the mega-terrorist attack at the Pulse Night Club in Orlando, Florida when and where precisely 49 homosexuals were murdered by a Afghani Muslim terrorist who became the 50th dead body in the bar at Alot HaShachar on Shavuot morning 5776 when the SWAT team burst through the wall of the night club.  It foretold that America had specifically fallen below 49 levels of impurity as a total society and would ultimately disintegrate at -50 being completely done in by its own war against Muslim extremism in Afghanistan.  Further on in the same post, I discussed how B'itah could come in one of two ways:

1. B'itah Achishena: 7 years BEFORE the fateful events in Orlando in 5776

or 2. B'itah: 7 years AFTER the fateful events in Orlando

This is based on a pasuk in the Torah in Shlach Lecha that during the Spying of the Land of Israel, the Meraglim arrived in Chevron where the text extraneously tells us that Chevron was built 7 years before Tzo'an was in Mitzraim from which we learn that the World cannot be out of spiritual balance between Good and Evil, Purity and Impurity, more than 7 years in either direction.  Of course it would have been preferable that we would have reached "Shaar HaNun", the 50th Gate of Purity in 5769, 7 years before 5776, but in order for that to transpire, we would need to pass a "small test" of collective Jewish human decency in the 4th year of that Shmittah cycle 5765 because according to the Gemorrah in Sanhedrin, the Rabbanim of Israel would kick off the Geulah through a tremendous spiritual awakening in the 5th year of that cycle..... Well it was actually a Big Test, and frankly some of us failed very badly by joining Sharon's Govt for the price of a prostitute.  IMMEDIATELY, we seemed to have lost the Golden opportunity that was on our plate for the Gog ben Gog Shmittah cycle that Ben David would come in 5766 or 5769, and now we are left playing catch up in the 7th year AFTER 5775, the previous Shmittah year.  So right now, our backs are against a Wall.  The World has been out of balance with more Evil and more impurity in the World than Goodness and Purity for almost 6 years now.  (Here we are counting the years from that Shavuot night and early morning in 5776 with the terrorist attack in Orlando.)  We have reached the point where righteousness and Goodness must come roaring back.  If the world had to exist even one more year until Shavuot 5783 as it is now, G-d would need to destroy the world that He created because it cannot simply exist out of balance on the side of Reprobate impurity for a full 7 years since that Shavuot night in 5776.  Through this review we have arrived at the question, "What is the signifying feature that we have reached the End because our world cannot remain in the negative column of spirituality for a full seven years?"  Apparently according to the Gemorrah and Rav Tauber, the signifying feature is that the the physical stuff making up our world can no longer be dedicated to a higher purpose.  Whether it be through sanctification through Mitzvot or technological advance through human progress on a physical level, the matter that makes up Creation itself is now resisting being used to improve the lot of Mankind!  It is as if the only goal of physical matter at this crucial time is the accumulation of more and more piles of physicality!   This is what is meant when our Sages in the Talmud said that they would prefer to not live at this time because observing spiritual reality at the very End would be like peering through the Dung of a Jackass.   Except that Rav Yosef makes the observation that it is at that precise moment, one year later in the Motzei Shmittah year, that ALL the physical stuff of the Universe (החומר) that was sanctified to G-d throughout all of human history would that following year become the Chamur (החמור), the donkey, on which Mashiach ben David will come riding into the Holy City.  You see, during the fateful Shmittah year, the world would reach a point where rank physicality for its own sake would try to take over the world, but it too would be destroyed by the end of that year or more accurately by Hoshana Rabbah of the Motzei Shmittah year so that Mashiach ben David would come riding into Yerushalayim on the pefected Chomer (physicality) or Chamur (Donkey) once the physicality with no potential of being perfected, represented by Donkey Dung, was judged and destroyed.  This is the essential characteristic of Redemption B'itah at the last possible moment with no possibility for being delayed.  And this is why Rav Yosef unlike the other Rabbanim in this Gemorrah wanted to be alive at this time.  Now let us discuss the type of Malkhut  that would exist at that time and will be on the verge of taking over the world.  Sadly I must report, for my name is Dov Bear, that the Malkhut of rank physicality for its own sake in Daniel chapter 7 is basically represented by a flesh devouring Bear!

 Daniel 7 is a fascinating chapter of Tana"kh and is most susceptible for mis-interpretation and misuse by those who believe in Oto Ish as their god.   So I will just get to the points as quickly as possible.  The first beast is a Lion with Eagle's wings.  In ancient times it most represented Babylon.  In the modern era Edom has the capacity to be all of the first three beasts, and the Lion with Eagle's wings has historically been represented by Great Britain and the United States.  Its crowning characteristic seems to be that those who roar like lions can fly as high as eagles.  It is those individuals who have that capacity who are the winners in such cultures.  They tend to be very free societies at their root so that the most capable individuals roar like lions and fly like eagles through their own intrinsic talents and hard work.  Those rugged individualists become the winners in such societies and achieve their goals the best through contributing greatly to the societies in which they live and usually accumulating large fortunes (the American Dream) as their earthly reward.  Lest you think that is all negative, it is not.  Part of the proof that the physical stuff of Creation in such societies has been dedicated to a higher purpose is that two of the four faces of the Holy Chayot, the four faced Angels that serve in on the Divine Chariot are a Lion and an Eagle!  Look it up in Yechezkel 1 yourself.  

ה  וּמִתּוֹכָהּ--דְּמוּת, אַרְבַּע חַיּוֹת; וְזֶה, מַרְאֵיהֶן--דְּמוּת אָדָם, לָהֵנָּה. 5 And out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance: they had the likeness of a man.

ו  וְאַרְבָּעָה פָנִים, לְאֶחָת; וְאַרְבַּע כְּנָפַיִם, לְאַחַת לָהֶם. 6 And every one had four faces, and every one of them had four wings.

י  וּדְמוּת פְּנֵיהֶם, פְּנֵי אָדָם, וּפְנֵי אַרְיֵה אֶל-הַיָּמִין לְאַרְבַּעְתָּם, וּפְנֵי-שׁוֹר מֵהַשְּׂמֹאול לְאַרְבַּעְתָּן; וּפְנֵי-נֶשֶׁר, לְאַרְבַּעְתָּן. 10 As for the likeness of their faces, they had the face of a man (facing south); and they four had the face of a lion on the right side (facing east); and they four had the face of an ox on the left side (facing west); they four had also the face of an eagle (facing north.

Our Holy Sages have brought down that this is why the Camp of Yehudah east of the Mishkan is under the Face of a Lion and why the Camp of Yosef to the West is under the Face of an Ox or Bull.  And throughout the Torah, Yehudah is compared to a lion while Yosef is compared to an Ox!  Along with this, the Camp of Reuven to the South has the banner of the likeness of a Man.  The Camp of Dan to the North seems to break the mold and seems to be represented by a Snake and not an eagle, but it is accepted that the Face of the Chayot over the Camp of Dan in the North was an Eagle.  From this we learn one salient fact.  A Malkhut represented by lions and eagles has the ability to take Mankind to great heights, albeit for their own benefit in Olam HaZeh and often at the expense of foreign cultures.  Still who can deny the advances brought to the benefit of Mankind by a Culture of rugged individualists has far outweighed their earthly deficits?  So at the very end of history when rank physicality is taking over the world, the Culture of Rugged Individualists represented by a Lion with Eagle's wings will crumble in that fateful Shmittah year on the threshold of Mashiach's coming.  Perhaps, their leader will in that fateful year be a Dementia ridden Reprobate incapable of leading his nation to the next plateau!  But I jest, how could such a man ever be elected in the first place?

At this point we will skip the Bear who devours more and more physicality as he is described in Daniel 7, for we have already discussed him above.  We will simply point out that the ancient Bear of partying and feasting often for 180 days at a time was ancient Persia, and the modern Bear amongst Edom is obviously Russia.  It is precisely this beast that has an advantage over the other beasts to go forth and conquer the World as the other beasts crumble and fail at the end of Olam HaZeh in this fateful Shmittah year.

The 3rd beast in Daniel chapter 7 wants to do more than conquer the world for its own appetites.  It wants to rule the world with Reason and Logic and set up world Govt for the entire globe of the earth, or what used to be called, "the four corners of the earth".   It is for this reason that this beast (a swift leopard) has four heads, for it wants to extend its rule over the entire planet bringing Mankind under one King...... who thinks he or she can rule the world by making up one's own reasonable laws without taking into account the infinite value of every human being.  In such a world, morality is defined by what is best for the smooth running of World Govt, not the rules of human decency defined by an Infinite Creator.  So such a world govt is bound to conflict with His Rules for the benefit of perpetuating World Govt.  Now one might think that such a world govt at war with G-d  cannot elevate Man to higher levels, but the Torah begs to differ with you on this.  When G-d was REALLY angry with Mankind during the Great Flood, the Torah persistently and consistently used the Divine Name Elokim as G-d meted out Justice against a recalcitrant Mankind.  Only when it came to saving Noach and the world's animals on the Ark is the Name of HaShem used.  As it says with regards to destroying the World:

יב  וַיַּרְא אֱלֹהִים אֶת-הָאָרֶץ, וְהִנֵּה נִשְׁחָתָה:  כִּי-הִשְׁחִית כָּל-בָּשָׂר אֶת-דַּרְכּוֹ, עַל-הָאָרֶץ.  {ס} 12 And God saw the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth. {S}

יג  וַיֹּאמֶר אֱלֹהִים לְנֹחַ, קֵץ כָּל-בָּשָׂר בָּא לְפָנַי--כִּי-מָלְאָה הָאָרֶץ חָמָס, מִפְּנֵיהֶם; וְהִנְנִי מַשְׁחִיתָם, אֶת-הָאָרֶץ. 13 And God said unto Noah: 'The end of all flesh is come before Me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.

Notice the Name Elokim is regularly used when discussing Judgement upon Mankind in the year 1656 AM.  Yet, a few chapters later or about 340 years later in the year 1996 AM, Nimrod wants to build a Tower to Heaven to war with G-d.  One might think that G-d would be equally angry and upset.  But lo and behold what do we see?  

  וַיֹּאמְרוּ הָבָה נִבְנֶה-לָּנוּ עִיר, וּמִגְדָּל וְרֹאשׁוֹ בַשָּׁמַיִם, וְנַעֲשֶׂה-לָּנוּ, שֵׁם:  פֶּן-נָפוּץ, עַל-פְּנֵי כָל-הָאָרֶץ. 4 And they said: 'Come, let us build us a city, and a tower, with its top in heaven, and let us make us a name; lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.'

ה  וַיֵּרֶד יְהוָה, לִרְאֹת אֶת-הָעִיר וְאֶת-הַמִּגְדָּל, אֲשֶׁר בָּנוּ, בְּנֵי הָאָדָם. 5 And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.

ו  וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה, הֵן עַם אֶחָד וְשָׂפָה אַחַת לְכֻלָּם, וְזֶה, הַחִלָּם לַעֲשׂוֹת; וְעַתָּה לֹא-יִבָּצֵר מֵהֶם, כֹּל אֲשֶׁר יָזְמוּ לַעֲשׂוֹת. 6 And the LORD said: 'Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language; and this is what they begin to do; and now nothing will be withholden from them, which they purpose to do.

ז  הָבָה, נֵרְדָה, וְנָבְלָה שָׁם, שְׂפָתָם--אֲשֶׁר לֹא יִשְׁמְעוּ, אִישׁ שְׂפַת רֵעֵהוּ. 7 Come, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.'

ח  וַיָּפֶץ יְהוָה אֹתָם מִשָּׁם, עַל-פְּנֵי כָל-הָאָרֶץ; וַיַּחְדְּלוּ, לִבְנֹת הָעִיר. 8 So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth; and they left off to build the city.

ט  עַל-כֵּן קָרָא שְׁמָהּ, בָּבֶל, כִּי-שָׁם בָּלַל יְהוָה, שְׂפַת כָּל-הָאָרֶץ; וּמִשָּׁם הֱפִיצָם יְהוָה, עַל-פְּנֵי כָּל-הָאָרֶץ.  {פ} 9 Therefore was the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth; and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth. {P}

Above is the entire story of the building of the Tower of Bavel and HaShem's response.  Five times, the Name HaShem is mentioned in this affair, and not even once is the Name Elokim mentioned in judging Nimrod's act of building world govt and going to war against G-d.  One might think that HaShem would be almost equally upset as He was 340 years earlier when He brought the Flood, but that is simply not the case!  So our first question should be Why?  The answer seems to be that before the Flood it was every Man and Woman for themselves.  Lawlessness filled the earth.  With world Govt there was at least the attempt to bring unity and brotherhood to Mankind, albeit with rules that benefited the Govt and not with G-d's Universal moral code which elevated the sanctity of every human being.  Still it was an attempt in a better direction of Unity and lack of selfishness.  In that way, even world govt in rebellion against G-d is leaps and bounds better than the Law of the Jungle.  So HaShem rather than responding with Divine Wrath against the attempt of the Generation of Nimrod to unify Mankind, He lovingly came down and said No, you can't do that!  So once again, we have the dichotomy.  In ancient times, the Four Headed leopard was the Malkhut of Alexander the Great who upon his death had his Empire divided amongst his four generals.  In the modern era, the equivalent kingdom is the first attempt at a modern world govt through a united Europe, the EU, whose parliament building in Strasbourg is modeled after a Renaissance painting of the Unfinished Tower of Bavel!  And once again, in this Shmittah year, HaShem has descended from Heaven to politely tell them NO!

So in this pre-Messianic Shmittah year as both the United States/ Great Britain and the EU both wither and die, who is it that smells an opportunity to fill a huge vacuum?  'Tis the Bear who arises to absorb and devour more and more unsatisfying physicality.  It is Dubiel or Bear Power (Russia and Persia) who goes forth on World Conquest.  At this stage, I am going to post my most recent Comments on my previous post.  They are in shorthand form, but they fully explain the entire thesis of the Vilna Gaon, as I have come to understand it, on this fateful B'itah year. 

 The Oral Tradition of the Vilna Gaon for 100% b'itah redemption, was for the most part given over to his closest students in the last decade of his life from about 1790 to 1797 before he passed away 225 yrs ago. His insights of course are based on the entire breadth of all of Tana"kh, but from what I was able to piece together from Rav Moshe Sternbuch of the Eidah Chareidit when he gave over some salient information in 2014 after Putin wrested the Crimea from the Ukraine, the Gaon seemed to stress 3 or 4 specific portions of the Tana"kh in his overview of the matter of the keitz, the final impermeable end of Olam HaZeh from which the proverbial can can no longer be kicked down the road to a later date.


1. Daniel 2: specifically the part about the statue in Nebuchadnezzar's dream where the 2 legs of iron mired with clay stand in the 2 ancient capitals of the of the Roman Empire, Rome and Constantinople. The iron is Edom, Rome, and Xtianity while the clay is Yishmael, his son Nebaiyot the founder of the Nabatean nation, Muhammad who was a Nabatean, and all of Islam. Since Yishmael was Pere Adam or wild jackass of a man, think Pere Adamah (a wild thing of earthenware or clay). So the clay in the vision of Nebuchadnezzar is Yishmael or Islam. In the "eastern" Rome, when the Muslim Turks conquered Constantinople, they changed the name to Istanbul. So the Roman capital where the iron is mired with clay is right there in Istanbul/Constantinople. At this point Sefer Daniel 2 and Yechezkel 38 and 39 point to a meteorite of unhewn Even Elgavish (stone crystallized on high) will destroy something about that city which will cause all of Olam HaZeh to turn to dust. But this would only happen when another Orthodox Xtian leader from Edom would conquer the city. Since the Greek Orthodox Patriarch of the Byzantine Empire is already in the city when it split from the Roman Catholic Church in the 11th Century, the only other Orthodox Church which considered itself based in the "3rd Rome" was the Russian Orthodox Church headquartered in Moscow.

2. The next part of the mix was Daniel 7 where of the 4 beasts discussed there, only one of those beasts survives to the very end, The Bear. The Vilna Gaon called this beast Dubiel. The other beasts disintegrate at the end because the physical world becomes spiritually bankrupt. It reaches a point where the Chomer of Creation becomes like the dung of a jackass that can no longer be elevated to a higher purpose. The Rugged individualists like Trump and Boris Johnson become powerless as the Lion with Eagle's wings fades into the background. Same with the NWO folks in the EU (the flying four headed leopard) as the drive for world govt simply runs out of steam. The 11th horn on the 4th beast (Barack Obama) is out of office. So at the very end it is Dubiel, the ancient and modern Bear (Persia and Russia) in an alliance with each other to fill in the vacuum created by the other 3 beasts fading into the background because Dubiel, rank physicality, is all that there is left.

3. Then there is Bilaam's last prophesy from BaMidbar. Continued....
Bilaam's last prophesy:
כד וְצִים מִיַּד כִּתִּים, וְעִנּוּ אַשּׁוּר וְעִנּוּ-עֵבֶר; וְגַם-הוּא, עֲדֵי אֹבֵד. 24 But Great ships (a Navy) shall come from the coast of Kittim, and they shall afflict Asshur, and shall afflict Eber, and he also shall come to destruction.

Both the Targum Yonatan Ben Uziel and the Vilna Gaon identify the coast of Kittim with Southwest Coast of Turkey and the Bosporus. The amazing thing about the Targum is that he identified the city as Constantine 3 1/2 Centuries before Constantine lived, established Roman Catholicism as the official religion of the Roman Empire, and moved the Roman Capital to a city straddling the Bosporus at the Black Sea named after himself which is connected to the Dardenelles and the Mediterranean by an inland sea called Marmara. How the Targum Yonatan knew the name is beyond amazing. Was it an Oral Torah from Sinai? Did he know it from Qabbalah? At this stage 2000 yrs later we just know that it is in his 1st Century Torah commentary when that very city was yet to be founded over 300 yrs later.

One last thing: Why send the Russian Navy to afflict Ever?  And we could add why afflict Ashur, Nineveh Province in Iraq?

Well here is my best answer.
I do not want to give the Satan any ideas, but the Germans will now be knocking on Israel's door for natural gas from the Leviathan and Tamar gas fields offshore in the Mediterranean, now that they are turning down gas from Russia's NordStream 2 pipeline. They frankly have no other option. Unlike the French, the Germans do not have nuclear power plants. Once Israel starts supplying the Germans with natural gas, Putin will lose part of his leverage. You can guess what Putin might do next.....

I should also point out that both the Tamar and Leviathan gas fields with which Putin might want to strangle Western Europe economically are 50 to 75 miles offshore. If Russia wants to take them militarily, Putin will do so using Russia's Black Sea Navy....through the Bosporus at Istanbul and the Dardenelles from the shores of Kittim........

REJOICE! REJOICE! OH ISRAEL! OUR REDEMPTION IS NIGH!

3333.33 Years after Matan Torah: The Loss of Hadar (Grandness) at Hod that is in Hod: Part 2

This is a continuation of the previous post which establishes the groundwork in explaining why Edom's Kingdom collapses 3333.33 years after Matan Torah.   So we left off with a discussion about Sefirat HaOmer, the Counting of 49 days between the first night of Pesach and the Eve of Shavuot, the Feast of Weeks often called Pentecost from the Greek translation of the text of the Torah (Pentecost meaning the 50th day).  So every year we Jews repeat this count, hoping not to forget even one night so that we can complete the Mitzvah which requires us not to forget counting even one night.  If one counts in the day, one does so without a brakhah, but the continuity of the Counting is not interrupted, and one can resume the Count with a Brakhah that evening.  This is how we work on ourselves to prepare for Sinai.  On Pesach we get rid of all the puffed up part of ourselves when we rid ourselves of Chametz, the puffed up part of ourselves being the aspects of our Yetzer HaRa that in particular come from Arrogance and Pride (Gayvah: Pride or Arrogance).  But we are really working on the interface between our Divine soul and our Animal soul, specifically the 7 lower aspects of our Divine soul (the seat of Gayvah) and how they interface with those same seven aspects of our Animal Soul (the seat of Tayvah: lust and desire).  From this point forward we will call the 7 lower aspects of our Divine soul the Nefesh Elyon, and we will call the 7 dimensions of our animal soul the Nefesh Behamit.  Over the course of each week we purify all seven aspects of our animal soul vis a vis one dimension of our Divine nefesh (Nefesh Elyon) in each particular week.  During the week of Pesach and Isru Chag (7 days including Isru Chag but not including Seder night), we work on the the seven aspects of our animal soul (Nefesh Behamit) and how it intersects with the attribute of Chessed (or Gedulah) in our Nefesh Elyon.  Since there is no Gayvah per se in Chessed, we do not become "puffed up" while counting Sefirat HaOmer during Pesach.  Only the next week after Isru Chag, do we begin to work on the next level of our Nefesh Elyon.  In both ways, physically and spiritually we begin to introduce Chametz back into our lives, something that we did not have during the 7 days of Chessed in our Nefesh Elyon.  Think of purifying each day as a 7 by 7 matrix.  The horizontal spaces of the matrix fill out all the qualities of our animal soul while representing one aspect of our Nefesh Elyon while the vertical rows of the matrix represent the filling of the 7 qualities of the Nefesh Elyon for each quality of our Nefesh Behamit.   The best way to show this matrix is to see the 7 by 7 chart.  One note, the Nefesh Behamit has ONLY 7 dimensions since it is part of the physical world of N, S, E, W, Up, Down and Time (notice 7 dimensions).   And there are 7 such dimensions because in space one can go in two opposite directions in each spatial dimension often called positive and negative, but Time ONLY goes forward.  For us in the created realm, time can never move backwards.  Since animals ONLY have this one soul called a Nefesh Behamit, they can be awake and At Rest on all four legs since a 7 dimensional soul is at rest in the physical world.  The Divine soul in total is called a Neshamah and has 10 Sefirot.  Since it has three extra Sefirot, the totality of this soul wants to escape from the physical universe by constantly pushing upward.  So the only animal that stands on two legs while it is "standing still" is Man.  I know someone will mention a kangaroo as an exception to this rule, but can we talk about kangaroos another time?  With man the three upper Sefirot are noded to the brain while the 7 lower Sefirot of the Nefesh Elyon are noded to the heart.  The Animal soul which is content and at rest within the body is only noded to the heart.  Below is the Chart of the 7 by 7 matrix of Sefirat HaOmer.  For these things one needs a visual aid.



So we see for the first day of the Sefirat HaOmer, we count Chessed (of the Nefesh Behamit) that is in Chessed (of the Nefesh Elyon).  The Second day is Gevurah (of the Nefesh Behamit) that is in Chessed of the Nefesh Elyon.  The third day is Tiferreth (which is best translated as Charisma) of the Nefesh Behamit that is in Chessed of the Nefesh Elyon.  The fourth day is Netzach (or Eternity) of the Nefesh Behamit that is in Chessed of the Nefesh Elyon.  The fifth day (or the 6th day of Pesach) is Hod (Glory) of the Nefesh Behamit that is in Chessed of the Nefesh Elyon.  The 6th day (or the 7th day of Pesach) is Yesod (Foundation) of the Nefesh Behamit that is in Chessed of the Nefesh Elyon.  And the 7th day (Isru Chag or 8th day of Pesach outside of Israel) is Malkhut (Kingship) of the Nefesh Behamit that is in Chessed of the Nefesh Elyon.  Notice during that entire week, we are working as individuals on our lowest level of the Nefesh Elyon (Chessed) preventing ourselves from inflating our Gayvah, and that entire week at least somewhere on earth we only eat Matzah.  I am including the 8th day in this even though that day is D'Rabbanan because of Sefaika D'Yoma.  It obviously has an important quality since for the last 1900 years most Jews in the world have observed 8 days of Pesach.   The following week we repeat all the "Qualities" or Sefirot of the Nefesh Behamit, but in that 2nd week we work on the Quality or Midah of Gevurah or Din in the Nefesh Elyon, reintroducing Chametz back into our spiritual lives, but hopefully in its pure form devoid of tumah.  In the third week we repeat the same exercise for the Midah of Tiferreth in the Nefesh Elyon.  In the fourth week we repeat the same exercise for the Midah of Netzach in the Nefesh Elyon.  In the fifth week, we repeat the same exercise for the Midah of Hod in the Nefesh Elyon.  In the sixth week, we repeat the same exercise for the Midah of Yesod in the Nefesh Elyon.   And in the seventh week, we repeat the same exercise for the Midah of Malkhut in the Nefesh Elyon, ending on the 49th day at Malkhut that is in Malkhut.  At this point we should take note of the Diagonal of the Matrix where the same Midah in the Nefesh Behamit intersects with the same Midah in the Nefesh Elyon.  Way back in Quantum Mechanics at University, we would call the values on this diagonal Eigen Values as long as the other values not on the diagonal were Zeroed out.  What is important here is that as we will see, these diagonal values are indicative of all five exiles.  Chessed that is in Chessed on Day 1 is a value indicative of the Egyptian Exile.  Gevurah that is in Gevurah on the 9th day is indicative of something crucial in the Babylonian Exile.   Tifereth that is in Tifereth on the 17th Day is indicative of something crucial in the Persian Exile with Amaleq threatening our very lives.  Netzach that is in Netzach on the 25th day is indicative of something crucial in the Greek Exile.  (Can you guess what it is?)  And finally, Hod that is in Hod on the 33rd day of Sefirat HaOmer as discussed fully in the previous post is indicative of something crucial in the Roman or Edomite Exile.  For all those first five Sefirot we the Jewish people have five mighty spiritual shepherds, who are not called Melekh because sadly because of our sins, after Shlomo, we lost our hold on Malkhut for the entire world during those first five Sefirot.  Malkhut in those first five Sefirot as we shall see was handed to the nations of the world, and Malkhut over Eretz Yisrael was specifically handed to the five nations listed above.  The first five shepherds are Avraham Avinu for Chessed, Yitzchak Avinu for Gevurah, Ya'akov Avinu for Tiferreth, Moshe Rabbeinu for Netzach, and Aharon HaKohen for Hod.  What is worth noting is that ABOVE the 33rd level of Purity, the nations of the world have no Malkhut!  So the final two Shepherds associated with those Sefirot Yesod and Malkhut can be called Melekh or Melekh HaMashiach (Yosef and David) because in the rarefied air above the 33rd level of purity only Israel can have worldwide Malkhut.

Now let's discuss something important from Chaza"l.  When Daniel was told about the 70 sevens in Sefer Daniel chapter 9, something became painfully obvious.  Because of our sins, the first Temple could not stand forever.  Since it was destroyed, two additional Temples were revealed so that over the course of history, there would be Three Temples, not just Two Temples.  Now why is this?  Because retro-actively the First Temple only corresponded to the Festival of Pesach,  The Second Temple would correspond in a limited way to the Festival of Shavuot or at least to the build up from Pesach to Shavuot as we will soon see, and the Final or Third Temple would correspond to Sukkot, an eternal Temple for all Mankind in the same way that Sukkot is a festival for all Mankind.  This is the B'dieved plan for the world because Klal Yisrael through our sins "chose" the path of of Rebuke in Leviticus and Deuteronomy as opposed to the path of Blessing, a path which would not have required the destruction of the First Temple at all.  

Now, all that is described above with regards to Sefirat HaOmer is what we do as INDIVIDUALS as we prepare for Shavuot after the first night of Pesach, often called Seder night.  Outside of Israel, the second Seder is the first night of Sefirat HaOmer (something that for the author of this blog is a distant memory from 18 years ago.)  In Eretz Yisrael, the first night of Sefirat HaOmer is the first day of Chol HaMoed, something that we soon hope that every Jew or Israelite in the world will soon experience.  What is important to ask, since Jews are still scattered all over the world since the destruction of the First Temple, is if we work on ourselves every year during Sefirat HaOmer turning every intersection between our Animal Nefesh and our Divine Nefesh from tamei to tahor from impure to pure, one day for each of these 49 intersections, how long would it take for the entire nation of Israel to do the same scattered all over the world in all 24 time zones?   Well it is true, during the Second Temple period, most of the world's Jews from the Southern Kingdom were in Babylon, not even in Eretz Yisrael with pockets of Jewish exiles in Yemen, in Greek controlled Egypt, and in parts of Germany?   Northern Kingdom Israelites were in Ethiopia and in cities mentioned in Tanakh that were in the Northeastern corners of the Assyrian Empire.  From there according to some, many of the Assyrian exiles were absorbed by Turkic tribes that migrated into Afghanistan and into the Land between the Black and Caspian Seas and became part of Khazaria.  The point being, during the Second Temple Period the bulk of the Judean Exiles including most of Binyamin, Shimon, and Levi in large numbers were either in what is modern day Iraq or in Iran.  Some of course did return to Eretz Yisrael with Zerubavel and after the 2nd Temple was built, but the Majority stayed behind in Bavel and Persia and in Yemen.  But during the Three Pilgrimage Festivals, they would even come from Babylon and Egypt as is required if you are within reasonable "walking" distance.  To be honest, It seems to make sense that they would have made the two week trek for Pesach and Sukkot, but to get home two weeks after Pesach and just a couple of weeks later to come for Shavuot?  I am not sure how they came from Babylon for Pesach and Shavuot in such a short span of time every year.  What is important to recognize is why did the Second Temple, according to Seder HaOlam, stand for 420 years?  (We are obviously excluding the 165 year discrepancy between Seder Olam dating and secular dating discussed by Rav Shimon Schwab zt"l during his lifetime because as he discussed, the Second Temple for those 165 years was a Shack in comparison to the First Temple, and G-d asked Daniel that the history of those 165 years be hidden from the historical record (Daniel 12:4).  As a matter of fact, the Gematriah of Sod Daniel סוד דניאל is 165!  So the deeper reason why these years were hidden is that our overarching mandate in history is to Repair the World.  Yet, during the period where the Second Temple stood but was just a shack, the World was not perfected by performing the Avodah in that Temple!  So G-d through his angel Gavriel, the Man in linen, asked Daniel to strike those years from the public record!  This is according to Rav Shimon Schwab zt"l when I read a couple of his essays on this matter in the 1980s.)  The primary thing that we learn from the years of the Second Temple that remain is that during those 420 years, we were perfecting the world through the Avodah done in that Second Temple.  But first and foremost, as we shall see now, we were perfecting ourselves.

In one of the earlier post on this blog, Hold on To Your Seat, before it was realized what the evacuation of Gush Qatif had wrought in terms of delaying the Geulah, I wrote:  All of world history is a cosmic travel from Pesach to Sukkot (Booths). The first Temple corresponded with Pesach. The Second Temple corresponded with Shavuot (The Feast of Weeks). The final Temple will correspond with Sukkot (Tabernacles). Because of our sin of internecine causeless hatred, the divine presence could not come down into the Second Temple. The 420 years that it stood plus the 70 years that Yerushalayim was barren between the Temples add up to 490 years. There are 49 days between Pesach and Shavuot. Each decade of the Second Temple period corresponded with one level of purity that we purify ourselves during the 49 day period between Pesach and Shavuot. Because of our disunity, the Divine Presence could not descend into the Holy of Holies and reside at the end of 490 years.  

So while we work on ourselves as individuals we rise during the 49 levels from Pesach until Shavuot, but the First Temple which corresponded with Pesach stood for 410 years and was destroyed.  It then stood fallow for 70 years before the Second Temple "officially" stood for 420 years.  And during that entire period of the second Temple while we were perfecting the world, we were actually perfecting ourselves as a nation.  Now why is that?  When it was decided that the First Temple would be destroyed, it was at the end of 890 years after Matan Torah (40 years in the desert, 440 years covering Yehoshua's Conquest, the Judges, and the rules of King Shaul and David, and 410 years for the 1st Temple).  With its destruction, it was decided that the entire First Temple Period corresponded to Pesach.  Then we see that the period between the destruction of that Temple and the destruction of the Second Temple is 490 years, ten years for each level of purity between Seder night and Shavuot!  Since the first seven levels of purity are DURING the 7 days of Pesach and Isru Chag, there was no Temple for 70 years or 7 x 10 years for the last 7 days of Pesach.  But for each level of the next 42 levels after Pesach, we perfected ourselves through the Avodah in the 2nd Temple and all other Mitzvot, one level every ten years that is 42 levels x 10 years per level for 420 years.  Since there was no Unity in Klal Yisrael at the end of those 490 years, the Shekhinah could not come down into that Temple, and that Temple was destroyed.  So in reality, the Second Temple corresponded with the days leading up to Shavuot that are not part of Pesach, that is the days of Sefirat HaOmer AFTER Pesach is completed.  Since there are 42 such days and since it took one decade to perfect ourselves at each level, it took 42 levels x 10 years for each level of purity which is equal to 420 years to perfect ourselves as a nation between the 8th and the 49th levels of purity, levels of purity reached after Pesach is completed.  Yet, since there was tremendous internecine hatred, there was no Shekhinah at the 50th level of purity waiting for us, and the Temple was destroyed.  So there we have an answer, while perfecting just ourselves as a nation, we perfected ourselves one level every decade during the Second Temple Period from perfecting level 8, the first level after Pesach until level 49!  Since 49 - 7 is 42, it took 420 years. 

So now we await the instruction to build the 3rd Temple, the Temple that corresponds to Sukkot which is the Festival for All the nations of the World (except for Amaleq), that can only be built when the time of Malkhut Edom can no longer rule above the 33rd level of purity.  The Billion Shekel question is, how many years does it take to reach that point?   For that answer we consult another pasuk, this time in Zekharia HaNavi 8:23  כג  כֹּה-אָמַר, יְהוָה צְבָאוֹת, בַּיָּמִים הָהֵמָּה, אֲשֶׁר יַחֲזִיקוּ עֲשָׂרָה אֲנָשִׁים מִכֹּל לְשֹׁנוֹת הַגּוֹיִם; וְהֶחֱזִיקוּ בִּכְנַף אִישׁ יְהוּדִי לֵאמֹר, נֵלְכָה עִמָּכֶם--כִּי שָׁמַעְנוּ, אֱלֹהִים עִמָּכֶם.  {ס} 23 Thus saith the LORD of hosts: In those days (the End of Days) it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold, out of all the languages of the nations, shall even take hold of the garment corner of him that is a Jew, saying: We will go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.'  

Ahah!  So the perfection of the World that takes place is ten fold, the perfection of Klal Yisrael on itself!  So if it takes ten years to perfect a particular intersection of attributes between the Nefesh Elyon and the Nefesh Behamit in all of Klal Yisrael, it takes 100 years to perfect that attribute in all of Mankind!  And from when do we start that counting of years?  From the day that we stood at Sinai, or from the Rosh HaShanah that came after we stood at Sinai?  And since Edom builds a roof with no holes in it (a Gag or a Gog) over his head or a New World Order when the world reaches the 33rd level of purity so that he can rule the world after the 33rd level without Divine Providence, he is permitted to engage in this folly .

So number one, why should we see this perfection of the entire world one level every 100 years begin the Rosh HaShanah AFTER Matan Torah?  The answer is quite basic and simple.  Both the First Day of Pesach and the 50th day of the Omer ARE NOT COUNTED!  They were free miraculous gifts from G-d, one day at the beginning of our 49 day climb out of the muckity muck of Tumah and one day, Shavuot itself, at the end of the 50 day count.   So the First day of the count is the night/day AFTER Seder night and does not include Seder night itself.  Yes, Seder night is a miraculous event whose merit is only the fulfillment of a promise made to Avraham at the Covenant Between the Parts that after 400 years of "wandering" even in our own land, eventual slavery, and intense affliction, we would be brought out of this horrible iron furnace with miracles and great wealth.  So Seder night or the Slaying of the First Born, the tenth plagues is not from our merit.  And yes it required a Statement of Faith offering that we could slay an Egyptian god at the full moon of the month when this sheep god is most "powerful" in Nissan (The sheep or Ram is the mazal for Nissan), we could slay it in broad daylight, roast it on a spit, and splatter the blood over the entrances to our homes, and the Egyptians would be powerless to stop us because it would become throughout history the Day of Deliverance from Egyptian Bondage.  But after the first nine plagues, we had ample evidence that we would not die as a consequence of our slaying this Egyptian god of the month.  So G-d's salvation at Midnight that very night was a wonderous supernatural gift to be commemorated throughout history.  Yet, the real work began the next day when we left Egypt and simply followed after the pillars of Cloud and of Fire to the shore of a Sea over which it seemed that we had no chance of crossing derekh hateva to the other side.  Then after crossing this Sea on the 7th day of Pesach or the 6th day of the Omer, we had instant thirst within 3 days and eventual intense hunger along the way.  So waters were sweetened to quench our thirst, and Bread eventually came down with the dew, but then we became thirsty once more, and Moshe brought water striking a rock which provided a manmade lake of water so that all Yisrael and its flocks and cattle could drink.  And then immediately after that we battled Amaleq, a nation that wanted to destroy us like no other.   Only upon reaching Mt. Sinai on Rosh Chodesh Siwan was the end of this constant struggle in sight.  Apparently after Moshe had hit the rock at Rephidim, before he war with Amaleq, that "split rock" followed Klal Yisrael for the next forty years of our wandering in the merit of Miriam standing by the Nile to make sure that Moshe's birth basket ended up in safe hands.  So the real struggles in the Midbar from the day we left Egypt were daily opportunities in personal growth for which we count the Omer.  But the first day itself, the 15th of Nissan, was a free gift, and the 50th day when we rose to the level to receive the Torah was also a free supernatural gift.   As human beings of flesh and blood with a Nefesh behamit and and a Nefesh elyon, we only were given tools to work on that 7 by 7 matrix to the 49th level of Taharah.  The 50th transcendent level could only be received as a Divine Gift.  So on that day we ALSO do NOT count.  So in that first year when we left Egypt, we do NOT begin to count the Centuries of "preparing the world" for the 3rd and Final Temple until Rosh HaShanah/ Sukkot of the following year.  Since it is the Mitzvot of Klal Yisrael that purifies and Repairs the world over the Centuries one level at a time per century, we count from Rosh HaShanah 2449 after having received the Torah during Shavuot, 6th or 7th of Siwan 2448. 

So let us see if World History has in any way unfolded to reflect these realities.  Has the world been purified and refined for all Mankind one level every Century?  So first let us skip forward exactly 3300 years to see if Esav at that moment in time tried to build that proverbial roof with no holes in it (a Gag built by Gog) because of his desire to no longer serve G-d above the 33rd level of purity!  Did this leader try to build a World Order which prided itself on how well Mankind could govern the affairs of Men without relying on the assistance of a Divine Being?  So let us skip from the year 2449 to exactly 3300 years into the future, and we reach the year 5749 or the Fall of 1988 according to the Gregorian calendar.  Lo and behold, Ronald Reagan is leaving the office of the US Presidency after two full terms.  At this time in Israel, the First Intifada had been taking place for a year already, and since Reagan was beginning to lose his mental faculties in the very last year of his 8 year Presidency, a new more oppressive foreign policy on Klal Yisrael was beginning to emerge from the more benign years of Sec of State George Shultz and UN Ambassador Jeanne Kirkpatrick.  That new foreign policy was coming from the V.P. heir apparent and eventually elected Gog Herbert Walker Bush Sr.  And PRECISELY, on schedule, the man who would declare a Masonic Novus Ordo Seclorum (a New World Order) before the UN in 1990 on the eve of the First Persian Gulf War against Saddam Hussein, was elected President of the United Srates on the 8th of November 1988 (29th of Cheshvan 5749) exactly 3300 years after 2449!  Given that Saddam Hussein was assuredly the Gilgul of Nebuchadnezzar who destroyed the first Temple, a long war would ensue between Gog Bush Sr. (#41) and his son Gog W. ben Gog Jr. (#43) lasting 17 years with a break in between for the Clinton Presidency before Saddam was eventually executed on the 9th of Tevet 5767 by a tribunal run by Iraq's interim Govt with the full support of President Gog son of Gog Bush Jr. to fulfill the pasuk from Dror Yikrah's third verse that we sing every Shabbat.  "Tread the winepress in the City of Basra and also in Babylon which arose to be strong. Now I am fully aware that Esav's angel as represented by the Tony Blair's British Army contingent was not executed in Basra by the Persian supporting Shiites at the end of that Shmittah cycle, but that was because of our OWN sins of evacuating Jewish Gaza in the middle of that Cycle in 5765 in a horrible thoughtless Churban which delayed the Geulah from that seven year Shmittah cycle.  But the two Gogs had at least partially fulfilled their purpose in the history of Mankind, representing the post G-d fearing leadership of Edom when he thinks he has a Divine right to rule and reshape the world without the constant Providence of G-d Himself.  What is key and seminal to know is that the New World Order that they tried and are still trying to propagate on Mankind is an affront to G-d in Heaven, an attempt at World Government without G-d as the Supreme Authority to run the world under His rules and not under the rules of Gog or any of his Lieutenants in Bankster positions that control the rigged asset markets (rigged since 2008) or in positions relating to World Government.  And like clockwork, he had appeared precisely right on schedule 3300 years or 33 Centuries starting after the Rosh HaShanah 2449 immediately after Matan Torah.  33 Centuries after 2449 was the Fall of 1988 when Gog Bush Sr. was elected President of the United States.

Other Landmarks along the Way:  But to be honest we should see other pieces of evidence that this is the pattern that history has followed, other proofs that as we reached certain Century markers.  So in the same way that the end of 33 Centuries marks the end of the matrix diagonal eigen value of Hod that is in Hod, let us start at the very beginning.  1. The Exodus from Egypt marked the "jumping off point" from the first level of purity in that if we had fallen below that level we would have been irredeemable!  The first level of purity at Chessed that is in Chessed is often called the bottom basement point or the 49th level of impurity (Mem Tet Shaarei Tumah).  That is, the imminent crash below Chessed that is in Chessed is the one and the same Mem Tet Shaarei Tumah.  So even at the very beginning of this process of Redeeming the World we start at the point of Klal Yisrael's potential extinction in Mitzraim, for if we had descended below that level, there would have been no Klal Yisrael to even receive the Torah!   So if We and Mankind started at this level in 2448, the Centuries of progress to rise above this level began in 2449, ESPECIALLY since AFTER Matan Torah, we wasted most of the rest of that year with the Sin of the Golden Calf (40 days later) and the loss of G-d's Benevolence and Guiding Mercy (for and additional 40 days) until Rosh Chodesh Elul 2448.  The beginning of Elul was the beginning of acceptance of our repentance which is now the case every year.  But it is really the beginning of the 30 day Court case in Heaven whose verdict is decreed on the 1st of Tishrei as it is for all Mankind.  Most of the teshuvah during that 30 day period is Teshuvah b'Yirah (Repentance out of Reverence).  At least the stress on teshuvah for those 30 days is Teshuvah b'Yirah.  Starting with Rosh HaShanah all the way to Yom Kippur with Avinu Malkeinu, Teshuvah b'Yirah is eclipsed by Teshuvah b'Ahavah (Repentace out of Love) through Yom Kippur.  Keep this concept in mind for later.  


2. So if the first intersection of both Animal and Divine soul is at Chessed that is in Chessed, the 2nd intersection is at the 9th level purity at Gevurah that is in Gevurah or (Din that is in Din).  The hallmark of strict Justice is the hallmark of Yitzchak Avinu where Good and Evil are choices between black and white, not moral shades of gray.  Remember after the Akeidah, all of Yitzchak's choices were black vs white.  Avoid the black, and do what is white.  In such a world, such choices ONLY exist for three mitzvot for which there never any extenuating circumstances.  These are Cardinal negative commandments where there never is a "heter" to commit them at least in the context of how they are defined as sins.  Those sins for which there never is a heter to commit them are:  Murder, Idolatry, and Sexual Immorality whose four categories are (Incest, Homosexuality, Bestiality, and Adultery).  Now of course, in the definition of Murder, self -defense is NOT Murder.  Execution of murderers is also NOT Murder.  But the intentional (or even careless) taking of a innocent life IS Murder.  If innocent lives are taken in War while attacking military targets that are being used aggressively against you, it is also NOT murder as long as the targets themselves are military in nature.  Innocent people sadly die as collateral damage and casualties, but their deaths are NOT as murdered victims.  If such people are targeted in War, then Yes, killing them is Murder.  But within the context of this definition, MURDER, SEXUAL IMMORALITY and DEVIENCY, and IDOLATRY exist as Sins for which there NEVER is an extenuating circumstance which would force you to commit them.  If someone had a gun at your head, you would need to accept the bullet rather than commit them.  Into this milieu came the Babylonians when it was the decreed time to destroy the First Temple for Klal Yisrael's disregard SPECIFICALLY for these Cardinal sins (The Sexual Immorality and Idolatry of Ba'al Pe'or, the Child Sacrifice of children to Molech in the Qidron and Hinnom Valleys):  These things were just the tips of a rather sordid iceberg which lead to the destruction of the 1st Temple in the year 3338.  Notice that the year 3338 is precisely 890 years after the Exodus from Egypt and Matan Torah, right smack at the end of the 9th Century after Matan Torah.  (I agree that according to our clock, it would seem that the destruction of the 1st Temple should have occurred ten or eleven years later so  that the math would be exactly 9 Centuries later, but here we must understand a new concept.)  The actual level that was being purified DURING the 9th Century after Matan Torah was the level of Gevurah that is in Gevurah (Din that is in Din).  So throughout that final century, HaShem gave us plenty of opportunities to repent.  For Instance, the Great Teshuvah Melekh Yoshiyahu through his righteousness helped to delay the inevitable destruction that was decreed on the First Temple.  Only after his untimely death at Megiddo that was actually brought about by extant Avodah Zarah that had not been completely wiped out in Judea was the destruction of the Temple a fait accompli.  Even then his son Yehoiyakim was king for 11 or 12 years before his son Yehoiyachin was carted off to Babylon when he had only been king for 3 months.  Then Tzidkiyahu (another son of Yoshiyahu) was king for an additional 11 years before the Temple was finally destroyed.  In short, HaShem waited until the very end of that 9th Century after Matan Torah to destroy the Temple whose reason for destruction was those 3 Cardinal sins, sins which are punished at the level of Gevurah that is in Gevurah an intersection of STRICT JUSTICE on our matrix.  

For a short time we are skipping the 17th level of purity, Tiffereth that is in Tiffereth, the 17th level of purity on our matrix and its association with the Persian Exile.  We will come back to this at the very end.  For definitional purposes we will be defining Tiffereth as the Beauty that is a result of Charisma or Charisma for short.  Charisma can be a tremendous tool for the very righteous and the very wicked.  Esav's Charisma with his mouth was in general used for wickedness and lies while Ya'akov's charisma was used for righteousness and Truth.  The same was the case in Persia at the time of Mordechai who also had this charisma that Ya'akov had for righteousness and Truth while our arch enemy Haman had this charisma for wickedness and Lies.  But we will get back to this later when talking about why the final war in which Olam HaZeh is destroyed is between Rome (at the 33rd level) and Persia (at the 17th level of impurity).  Hint. Hint.  They add up to 50.

So let us skip way into the the more distant future from the year 3338 to the 25th Century after Matan Torah.  Let us call that Century 2449 + 2400 or + 2500 years.  Here we are talking about a period of one Century between 4849 and 4949.  Since the year 5000 was the year 1240ce of the Gregorian Calendar, we are talking about a Century that began in 1088ce and ended in 1188 ce.  That would be the 25th Century after Matan Torah at the Sefirah of Netzach that is in Netzach.   Do we see anything in that Century befitting of the 25th level of purity and the Greek Exile?  On first glance, No.  The Greeks were not on the move to conquer the world in the 12th Century ce., but another event in the Jewish world Did take place which placed those things in Greek culture that could be used to sanctify the Name of G-d into their holy context.  The Jew who did this was Rav Moshe Ben Maimon, the Great RaMBaM.  With his publishing of the Guide for the Perplexed around 1190 ce very close to the 2500 year mark since 2449, the Rambam was able to give five proofs for the the existence of G-d where his proofs utilized Aristotelian logic!  Now as controversial as this may have been amongst many less respectful Jews who often tried to burn this particular work of his in bonfires for the next 100 years, the Guide remains the seminal work for how to utilize what is simply a vessel from Greek philosophy for it Holy purpose.  He took the secular vessel (of seven spheres) of Aristotelian logic and sanctified it and gave it the Qedushah of transcendence (of eight).  This was no small achievement for a great philosophical work, one of the greatest of all time, at the end of 2500 years after Matan Torah!  What is important to understand is the Netzach or the Eternity of Greek Wisdom?  We know the names of their great philosophers like Aristotle  from what is now 2500 years ago.  They are household names as is the Netzach of Israel where the world knows the names of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and Moses.  Where we differ from Greece is not in the Eternality of its Conceptions and Beliefs and its system of logic but in where to apply the next Sefirah Hod (Glory), for the Greeks gave their glory to Man while Israel gives its Glory to G-d.  And it is from here that we arrive at Edom (Rome) who "pretends" to give its Glory to G-d......... in order to make money and to acquire eternal wealth in Olam HaZeh. 

So once again we arrive at the Gog Bush Sr. period of history that started 3300 years after Matan Torah.  What is to prevent him and his chosen lieutenants for ruling for a full Century until the year 2088 (5848 or 3400 years after Matan Torah?).  The answer lies in his grave error.  He does not serve precisely to the 33rd level of purity which would have allowed him to have a Chazakah or partial ownership on Heavenly Money at least until the 34th level of Purity.  Instead part of the way through the 33rd level he ran out of steam!  Where do we see this?  The Tears that Esav shed when he did not get his Brakhah!:

Esav Shed just two tears of Teshuvah b'Ahavah while the 3rd tear welled up in his eye but never fell down his cheek:  We read from Bereishit which is this coming weeks Parshah of Toldot the following:    

ג  וַיֶּחֱרַד יִצְחָק חֲרָדָה, גְּדֹלָה עַד-מְאֹד, וַיֹּאמֶר מִי-אֵפוֹא הוּא הַצָּד-צַיִד וַיָּבֵא לִי וָאֹכַל מִכֹּל בְּטֶרֶם תָּבוֹא, וָאֲבָרְכֵהוּ; גַּם-בָּרוּךְ, יִהְיֶה. 33 And Isaac trembled very exceedingly, and said: 'Who then is he that hath taken venison, and brought it me, and I have eaten of all before thou camest, and have blessed him? yea, and he shall be blessed.'
לד  כִּשְׁמֹעַ עֵשָׂו, אֶת-דִּבְרֵי אָבִיו, וַיִּצְעַק צְעָקָה, גְּדֹלָה וּמָרָה עַד-מְאֹד; וַיֹּאמֶר לְאָבִיו, בָּרְכֵנִי גַם-אָנִי אָבִי. 34 When Esau heard the words of his father, he cried with an exceeding great and bitter cry, and said unto his father: 'Bless me, even me also, O my father.'

At this stage, he had Cried out to HaShem or the Universe but the Cry was really a Scream.  No tears had yet rolled down his eyes to denote his suffering from having lost his principal blessing.

But then comes this verse after the initial shock of coming to terms with how Ya'akov had come with guile and had taken the Brakhah meant for him:

  לז  וַיַּעַן יִצְחָק וַיֹּאמֶר לְעֵשָׂו, הֵן גְּבִיר שַׂמְתִּיו לָךְ וְאֶת-כָּל-אֶחָיו נָתַתִּי לוֹ לַעֲבָדִים, וְדָגָן וְתִירֹשׁ, סְמַכְתִּיו; וּלְכָה אֵפוֹא, מָה אֶעֱשֶׂה בְּנִי. 37 And Isaac answered and said unto Esau: 'Behold, I have made him thy lord, and all his brethren have I given to him for servants; and with grain and wine have I sustained him; and what then shall I do for thee, my son?'
לח  וַיֹּאמֶר עֵשָׂו אֶל-אָבִיו, הַבְרָכָה אַחַת הִוא-לְךָ אָבִי--בָּרְכֵנִי גַם-אָנִי, אָבִי; וַיִּשָּׂא עֵשָׂו קֹלוֹ, וַיֵּבְךְּ. 38 And Esau said unto his father: 'Hast thou but one blessing, my father? bless me, even me also, O my father.' And Esau lifted up his voice, and wept.

So at this point apparently he actually cried two tears while a third tear welled up in his eye, but he never shed that tear!  We learn this from the Yalkhut Shimoni 115 on Tehillim (Psalm) 80:5- 8

ה  יְהוָה אֱלֹהִים צְבָאוֹת--    עַד-מָתַי עָשַׁנְתָּ, בִּתְפִלַּת עַמֶּךָ. 5 O LORD God of hosts, how long wilt Thou be angry against the prayer of Thy people?

The idea is that the two tears that Esav shed resulted in the destruction of Two Temples.  The First Temple which he did not destroy, he rejoiced exceedingly over its destruction as the Jews who left Yerushalayim for Babylon passed through Edom on their way to Bavel.  The Edomim taunted the Jews as they passed through their territory on their way to Bavel.  As it says in Yechezkel 35:15 

   כְּשִׂמְחָתְךָ לְנַחֲלַת בֵּית-יִשְׂרָאֵל, עַל אֲשֶׁר-שָׁמֵמָה--כֵּן אֶעֱשֶׂה-לָּךְ:  שְׁמָמָה תִהְיֶה הַר-שֵׂעִיר וְכָל-אֱדוֹם כֻּלָּהּ, וְיָדְעוּ כִּי-אֲנִי יְהוָה.  {פ} 15 As thou (Edom) didst rejoice over the inheritance of the house of Israel, because it was desolate, so will I do unto thee; thou shalt be desolate, O mount Seir, and all Edom, even all of it; and they shall know that I am the LORD. 

So even before they destroyed the Second Temple, they had already gotten their full of Joy from the destruction of the First Temple!!   So that their two tears of sorrow at having lost the brakhah to their brother Esav was "rectified" by their Joy over the destruction of both Temples!  Continuing Psalm 80 about how Israel suffers since Esav's tears were heard on high:

ו  הֶאֱכַלְתָּם, לֶחֶם דִּמְעָה;    וַתַּשְׁקֵמוֹ, בִּדְמָעוֹת שָׁלִישׁ. 6 Thou hast fed them with the bread of tears, and given them tears to drink in large measure.  The actual word in Hebrew for (large Measure) refers to Esav's third tear that never fell.  
ז  תְּשִׂימֵנוּ מָדוֹן, לִשְׁכֵנֵינוּ;    וְאֹיְבֵינוּ, יִלְעֲגוּ-לָמוֹ. 7 Thou makest us a strife unto our neighbours; and our enemies mock as they please.
ח  אֱלֹהִים צְבָאוֹת הֲשִׁיבֵנוּ;    וְהָאֵר פָּנֶיךָ, וְנִוָּשֵׁעָה. 8 O God of hosts, restore us; and cause Thy face to shine, and we shall be saved.

From this we see that there was a cost to the fact that Ya'akov took the Brakhah that was meant for his brother with deceit.  The cost was that Edom would rejoice twice over Israel's loss of two Temples.  And in addition to that Israel would continue to suffer until the third tear that never fell had fully received its recompense.  But because the third tear never fell, Esav never did a full teshuvah for his rebellion against G-d during the first 63 years of his life until he received his lesser blessing.   And additionally, at the end of Days he would have three centuries of Teshuvah b'Ahavah corresponding to the 31st, the 32nd, and the 33rd levels of purity where he would fail to rectify his previous behavior from when he actually lived 3700 years ago!  So how do we see this?  The first 29 days of Teshuvah are in the month of Elul corresponding to Teshuvah b'Yirah (Repentance out of Reverence).  The First Day of Rosh HaShanah is the 30th day of Teshuvah when a switch takes place which should continue for the next 10 days.  The switch is that the concentrated effort should be on Teshuvah b'Ahavah all the way until Yom Kippur.  It is at this point that we begin to shed tears over our horrendous behavior for lives not well spent.  Tears appeal to G-d as a Father sway the Father in Love toward His Son while Tears before a King have basically no effect.  Kings want obedience.  They do not respond to us out of Love, but A Father does respond out of Love.  So when one repents before a King, one simply vows to not repeat previous mistakes, and a Righteous King will potentially grant absolution from punishments, but on Day 30 we begin to appeal to G-d as our Father AND our King.  So on that day we begin to plead with our tears in order to sway our G-d as our Father.  So here we see a parallel to the fact that Moshe was told about the Mon on the 30th day of the Omer, and that the Omer was going to fall that very night on the 31st day of the Omer for the first time.  So if Esav had repented of his lawless ways with three whole tears, it would be as if he had truly risen three more levels b'Ahavah to the 33rd level of purity in wholesomeness and in righteousness, and perhaps his Malkhut would be Eternal or at least would last another full Century.  But as history shows, that is NOT what occurred.  The third tear welled up in his eye, and during the 33rd Century after Matan Torah, Edom entered a steep period of Moral Decline!.  

I think on a basic spiritual level, Esav realized where History was headed with the founding of the United States of America in 1776.  1776 is before 1789 when its Constitution was ratified, and 1776 is at the end of the 31st Century after Matan Torah between 1688 and 1788.  For the first time, Esav as a Civilization was going to at least attempt to serve G-d out of Love, a true repentance out of Love to Our Father in Heaven.  Anyone who has read about the history of the American Colonies in the two generations leading up to the Revolution in 1776 knows about "The Great Awakening" and can testify to the fact that the Great Awakening was an attempt to Repent to G-d out of Love.  I would suggest reading about the Great Awakening in order to fully grasp the the spiritual revolution starting around 1730 instigated by people like Jonathan Edwards and George Whitefield to grasp the extent of the spiritual Revolution of the budding American nation as a Nation Under G-d (Not a nation under Yoshke per se) and how that preceded America as a nation by at least one generation.  It is in this First Great Awakening that America as an exceptional nation received its mantle and its blessing for success.  To fully understand the Founding of America, one must first grasp the innovative novelty of this Awakening.  Now the reason for its importance is because the Great Awakening was the engine and the fuel for the next three centuries, the 31st, the 32nd, the the 33rd Centuries after Matan Torah.  If America were to succeed in her mission statement of Serving G-d to Bring about Neverending Prosperity, it would have to morally grow and succeed for all three of these Centuries (until 1788, from 1789 until 1888, and from 1889 until 1988 when Gog Bush was elected President)  Well it seemed to be holding its own until the sexual revolution that I discussed in detail in this recent and previous post .  I will not spend a lot of time here discussing the stages of moral collapse that began to occur right after WW1, but the more notable collapse that began in the mid 1960s is the one that proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that Esav never intended to fully serve G-d up to the 33rd level of purity.  About 2/3rds through that 33rd Century, the morality of his once great nation fell into ruin!  Maybe it started with the iconic fill "Rebel Without a Cause" in 1955, the James Dean film on rebelling against G-d that grew from that moment in time which was almost precisely 2/3rds of the way through that 33rd Century.  America would make it until 1988, but it would be at a point of steep moral decline that had taken root 33 years earlier.  

The Unfinished Pyramid:  The best way to understand Edom in his twilight is to analyze one of his principle occultic symbols.  I basically meantion it here because this particular symbol is not just a symbol for Free-Masonry or the Illuminati.  It is on the Reverse of the Great Seal of the United States!  That is it is America's officially second most important National symbol!  And the fact that it appears on the $1 bill emphasizes this important symbol as a vehicle for Serving the G-d that Americans trust in for the purpose of making money:


:


Now, originally many of America's Founding Fathers did not want this to be a symbol of the United States or at least they did not want this symbol to be on any of America's national emblems.  Benjamin Franklin preferred that that the Reverse of the Great Seal should be Moses Parting the Red Sea with the Children of Israel crossing the Sea with the Caption:  Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to G-d!   Thomas Jefferson preferred that the Front of the Great Seal should be a Pillar of Fire by Night and a Pillar of Cloud by day leading the Children of Israel in the Wilderness.   Yes, these where some real proposals by some of America's Founding Fathers.  All of the themes were Biblical themes from Hebrew Scripture.  But none of these proposals was accepted by the bulk of America's founding fathers.  What seemed to attract them was a Reverse that is strikingly similar to the Unfinished Pyramid above.  What is noteworthy about this symbol is #1 Novus Order Seclorum, the Latin words for the English New World Order, what Gog Bush Sr. declared before the UN at the onset of the first Persian Gulf War in 1990. #2 But what is more striking that if you measure it with a ruler, the unfinished Pyramid is precisely cut off at the 2/3rds mark!  Above the pyramid is a pagan eye of Isis, and Egyptian Avodah Zarah based on the actual wife of Nimrod (a subject that I do not want to tackle here), but just to say she rebelled against G-d just like her husband and controlled Nimrod's world govt by using the "dark occultic arts" and the Nimrodian Courts, which accounts for the title Dayanah or Diana which was her title as the head of Nimrod's courts.  Again not getting deeply into this Isis.  But her eye IS on the Reverse of the Seal of the United States, AND on the $1.00 bill.  So it deserves a mention, lest people think that there is anything kosher about this American national symbol.  Then there is Annuit Coeptis which means supposedly, that someone (Isis or G-d) is smiling on our efforts!  What a Seal!!  So here we go.  Esav rises to a level which is equivalent of 2/3rds of the way to Sinai which turns out to be either 2/3rds of 49 = 32 and 2/3rds level of purity which represents "our efforts" OR 2/3rds of 50 which is 33.333333. which is 2/3rds of America's attachment to Infinity and Permanent Prosperity.  In reality by studying the history of the 20th Century, Edom reached his zenith in the 1950s in America, 2/3rds of the way to 49 up to the 33rd level of purity.  Then he declared his New World Order 3300 years after Matan Torah in 1990, but in reality his New World Order will only last to the 33.33333 level of purity or 3333.33 years after Matan Torah even if the last fifty years of this process have represented Edom in steep spiritual decline.  And his maximum use date or the time of his collapse is when he at the 33.33333 level of purity, or 3333.33. years after Matan Torah, at which point he can no longer lead Mankind.   

I did not discuss EverGrande (3333.hk) listed on the Hong Kong Exchange in this post.  If it unfolds and shows itself to be the lynchpin behind the collapse of Qeren Qayemet (the so called Stock Market) in Olam HaZeh by Tu B'Shevat, I will write about it in a Part 3.  But this post covers my thought process for the last 10 years where I have verily believed that Edom's b'itah date of Collapse would be 3333 1/3 years after the Rosh HaShanah that would follow Matan Torah in 2448.

3333.33 Years After Matan Torah: The Expiration Date on Malkhut Edom: Part 1

 I have written about this subject in Comments throughout the years, but I never have written the Definitive article on it because we had not yet reached this End of Use date on this final Exile.  In this post, I would suggest that you read previous posts about Edom's maximum effort to serve G-d to Attain Prosperity and to Make Money.  My principal post about this years ago was about 33rd Degree FreeMasonry , but most of the discussion about this subject was done in the Comments section of numerous posts throughout the years.   So here is a quick review.  Esav had two primary faults:  

1. When he sold his Bechorah at Age 15, his birthright for a double portion as a firstborn, he thought he was selling his portion in this World and keeping his portion in the World to Come.  His logic was that he was usually successful in the world of competition in this world, and in his mind he did not need G-d's blessing to succeed in this world through his own wiles and natural talents, but to enter the world to Come, he needed G-d's blessing.  So he thought that he could sell his portion of G-d's blessing in this world and keep his single portion of brakhah to enter the World to Come.  To get that single portion, he did not need the double portion of a firstborn son.  So he sold it for the Red lentil soup.  Lo and behold, 48 years later at Age 63 when he went into his father's tent to receive his blessing, he finds out that what he had sold was his portion in the World to Come, and all he had left was his portion in Olam HaZeh!  And rather than reflect on the logic behind losing his World to Come because of his G-dless behavior in this world, he blamed his brother for buying his double portion 48 years earlier!  Yet, while Yaakov did employ deceit to get his brother's blessing just a few minutes earlier before Esav showed up in the tent, the birthright purchase 48 years before was 100% above board with no deceit whatsoever, but Esav refused to reflect on how he slowly lost his Olam HaBa over the years because of his own rebellion against G-d.

2. This second fault was likely his primary fault which lead to the loss of his Olam HaBa.  Esav looked at his father Yitzchak as someone who lived a perfect life and like him was also very successful in the World of Business Competition.  But he noticed that for his entire life, Yitzchak lived in a world where moral choices were black and white.  And in such a world, Yitzchak of course always chose white in his world of more clarity.  So when bad men came to steal his well, rather than negotiate with such men, he would simply withdraw and dig another well which he also succeeded at.  He never had to choose the least of several evils or the greater of several goods where all his choices had lighter or darker shades of gray in them.  Now, Yitzchak was not born into this set of circumstances, but After the Akeidah because his soul had gone to Shamayim for a brief moment, he was given the privilege of leading a life of Olam HaBa already in Olam HaZeh!  This explains his unique inheritance to his children which included portions in both worlds!    So by avoiding Evil, he always chose the best of all possible choices.  Such choices were therefore not alterable by different extenuating circumstances where a "darker" choice might become the best choice that is available.  The condition placed upon him to "live in such a world" was that he could never leave Eretz Yisrael as his father Avraham had and as his son, Yaakov, was bound to do.  So when Esav saw that his choices were often between lighter and darker shades of gray, he became "frustrated" that he could never be as morally great as his father.  Ya'akov thinking about these matters in his tent realized that the world of extenuating circumstances and choosing the best choice available amongst a set of choices was the World of Truth.  For every negative commandment, there might be several set of circumstances where one might have a heter to "transgress" it, and for every positive commandment there might be dozens of reasons why one might be exempt from doing it.  What later became clear is that this would be the way or "halakhah" of Jews in the world throughout history, and the Emeth of Ya'akov was actually superior to the Strict Black and White Justice of his great father.  Esav though rejected this thought process of his brother Ya'akov, and considered such "pilpul" of Ya'akov and the sages that would come from his loins to be Hypocrisy.  So if he could not live in the Black and White Moral Universe of his father, he chucked the entire system of moral decision making altogether!  So when it came time to marry, he chose Canaanite wives from the 7 nations that claimed parts of E. Yisrael even though he knew this was forbidden by G-d.... along with a whole slew of major moral rebellions.  And through all this, he STILL thought that when he had sold his birthright of a double portion (one in this world and one in the World to Come), he had held onto his single portion in the World to Come!  So 48 years later while receiving his blessing for his portion in this World, he blamed his brother, sought to kill him, and then needed to come to terms with the one brakhah that his father had left for him. prosperity and kingship in this present Age if his brother Ya'akov was unworthy to lead in this present Age.

Esav Choosing Olam HaZeh:  So when Esav created his own religion, he found one where his World to Come was NOT contingent on his own moral behavior or on making G-d ordained moral decisions rooted in his extenuating circumstances.  Instead what was necessary for Esav in his mind to have an Olam HaBa was to find a man born a Jew who died for the future sins of Mankind so that people who believed in this could enter G-d's Heavenly Kingdom.  Never mind that there is nothing in Hebrew Scriptures which points to blood sin sacrifices giving someone access to Olam HaBa.  Only Teshuvah could attain that.  Blood animal sacrifices only extended one's life in this world, not in the next World!  You could attach your life and extend your life in this world to the slaughter and placement of blood from a Qorban on an altar, but only if you suffer from YOUR OWN suffering and loss of blood in this world, does it extend your life into Olam HaBa.  This is why animal sacrifices can become a big problem.  People are lengthening their days on earth without lengthening their days in the World to Come.  And when a Tzaddiq suffers for the sins of the Generation, the same thing happens.  His generation suffers less in this world because of his suffering, but whether or not they enter Olam haBa is not changed by his righteousness alone.  But here we see that Esav, ONCE AGAIN, at his root confused his reward in Olam HaZeh for his reward in Olam HaBa, and someone else's suffering with his own suffering!   You might think that 3600 years later, he would have figured out the fallaciousness of his own logic, but no such luck.  So based on his logical fallacy, he did realize something a bit new from the brakhah that he actually received from his father.  If he wants to receive blessing from "the Dew" he needs to at least serve G-d to be blessed with prosperity in Olam haZeh  His service need not be for its own sake, but if he wants prosperity and the Malkhut that comes from controlling the world's wealth, he needs to serve G-d up to a certain point or limit.  For this he actually looked into the Torah of Israel to find the inflection point where Ya'akov or Israel receives prosperity for his actions along with the potential to hold onto it forever (Ever being the key word).  From the Torah in Exodus 16, Parshat Be'Shalach after crossing the Red Sea but before arriving at Mt. Sinai we find the following:      וַיִּסְעוּ, מֵאֵילִם, וַיָּבֹאוּ כָּל-עֲדַת בְּנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל אֶל-מִדְבַּר-סִין, אֲשֶׁר בֵּין-אֵילִם וּבֵין סִינָי--בַּחֲמִשָּׁה עָשָׂר יוֹם לַחֹדֶשׁ הַשֵּׁנִי, לְצֵאתָם מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם. 1 And they took their journey from Elim, and all the congregation of the children of Israel came unto the wilderness of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after their departing out of the land of Egypt.

ב  וילינו (וַיִּלּוֹנוּ) כָּל-עֲדַת בְּנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל, עַל-מֹשֶׁה וְעַל-אַהֲרֹן--בַּמִּדְבָּר. 2 And the whole congregation of the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron in the wilderness;

ג  וַיֹּאמְרוּ אֲלֵהֶם בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, מִי-יִתֵּן מוּתֵנוּ בְיַד-יְהוָה בְּאֶרֶץ מִצְרַיִם, בְּשִׁבְתֵּנוּ עַל-סִיר הַבָּשָׂר, בְּאָכְלֵנוּ לֶחֶם לָשֹׂבַע:  כִּי-הוֹצֵאתֶם אֹתָנוּ אֶל-הַמִּדְבָּר הַזֶּה, לְהָמִית אֶת-כָּל-הַקָּהָל הַזֶּה בָּרָעָב.  {ס} 3 and the children of Israel said unto them: 'Would that we had died by the hand of the LORD in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the flesh-pots, when we did eat bread to the full; for ye have brought us forth into this wilderness, to kill this whole assembly with hunger.' {S}

ד  וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה אֶל-מֹשֶׁה, הִנְנִי מַמְטִיר לָכֶם לֶחֶם מִן-הַשָּׁמָיִם; וְיָצָא הָעָם וְלָקְטוּ דְּבַר-יוֹם בְּיוֹמוֹ, לְמַעַן אֲנַסֶּנּוּ הֲיֵלֵךְ בְּתוֹרָתִי אִם-לֹא. 4 Then said the LORD unto Moses: 'Behold, I will cause to rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a day's portion every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in My law, or not.

ה  וְהָיָה בַּיּוֹם הַשִּׁשִּׁי, וְהֵכִינוּ אֵת אֲשֶׁר-יָבִיאוּ; וְהָיָה מִשְׁנֶה, עַל אֲשֶׁר-יִלְקְטוּ יוֹם יוֹם. 5 And it shall come to pass on the sixth day that they shall prepare that which they bring in, and it shall be twice as much as they gather daily.'

From here we see that, Moshe was informed about the Bread from Heaven on the 15th of Iyar, 30 days after leaving Mitzraim which would be the 30th day of the Counting of the Omer.  Since Israel left Mitzraim on a Yom Chamishi, a Thursday, the 30th day was a Shabbat.  That night, Motzei Shabbat, Bread would fall from Heaven for the first time and as the succeeding verses say, It would fall for 6 days, and on that day one should gather a double portion for Shabbat when Bread would NOT fall from Heaven.  So the beginning of Brakhah or Bread from Heaven would be on the 31st day of the Counting of the Omer!

Next we see this curious verse which awakens Esav's curiosity primarily because it refers to his own blessing from his father Yitzchak.    וַיְהִי בָעֶרֶב--וַתַּעַל הַשְּׂלָו, וַתְּכַס אֶת-הַמַּחֲנֶה; וּבַבֹּקֶר, הָיְתָה שִׁכְבַת הַטַּל, סָבִיב, לַמַּחֲנֶה. 13 And it came to pass at even, that the quails came up, and covered the camp; and in the morning there was a layer of dew round about the camp.

יד  וַתַּעַל, שִׁכְבַת הַטָּל; וְהִנֵּה עַל-פְּנֵי הַמִּדְבָּר, דַּק מְחֻסְפָּס--דַּק כַּכְּפֹר, עַל-הָאָרֶץ. 14 And when the layer of dew was gone up, behold upon the face of the wilderness a fine, scale-like thing, fine as the hoar-frost on the ground.

  וַיִּרְאוּ בְנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל, וַיֹּאמְרוּ אִישׁ אֶל-אָחִיו מָן הוּא--כִּי לֹא יָדְעוּ, מַה-הוּא; וַיֹּאמֶר מֹשֶׁה, אֲלֵהֶם, הוּא הַלֶּחֶם, אֲשֶׁר נָתַן יְהוָה לָכֶם לְאָכְלָה. 15 And when the children of Israel saw it, they said one to another: 'What is it? (Or Man Hu?)'--for they knew not what it was. And Moses said unto them: 'It is the bread which the LORD hath given you to eat.

As soon as Esav sees that his Bread from Heaven comes from the evaporation from the Morning Dew, he reflects on his Brakhah from Yitzchak from Gen :

  וַיְהִי, כַּאֲשֶׁר כִּלָּה יִצְחָק לְבָרֵךְ אֶת-יַעֲקֹב, וַיְהִי אַךְ יָצֹא יָצָא יַעֲקֹב, מֵאֵת פְּנֵי יִצְחָק אָבִיו; וְעֵשָׂו אָחִיו, בָּא מִצֵּידוֹ. 30 And it came to pass, as soon as Isaac had made an end of blessing Jacob, and Jacob was yet scarce gone out from the presence of Isaac his father, that Esau his brother came in from his hunting.

לא  וַיַּעַשׂ גַּם-הוּא מַטְעַמִּים, וַיָּבֵא לְאָבִיו; וַיֹּאמֶר לְאָבִיו, יָקֻם אָבִי וְיֹאכַל מִצֵּיד בְּנוֹ--בַּעֲבֻר, תְּבָרְכַנִּי נַפְשֶׁךָ. 31 And he also made savoury food, and brought it unto his father; and he said unto his father: 'Let my father arise, and eat of his son's venison, that thy soul may bless me.'

After finding out that Ya'akov had already been in the tent to receive his blessing, Esav asked his father and wept:

  וַיֹּאמֶר עֵשָׂו אֶל-אָבִיו, הַבְרָכָה אַחַת הִוא-לְךָ אָבִי--בָּרְכֵנִי גַם-אָנִי, אָבִי; וַיִּשָּׂא עֵשָׂו קֹלוֹ, וַיֵּבְךְּ. 38 And Esau said unto his father: 'Hast thou but one blessing, my father? bless me, even me also, O my father.' And Esau lifted up his voice, and wept.

לט  וַיַּעַן יִצְחָק אָבִיו, וַיֹּאמֶר אֵלָיו:  הִנֵּה מִשְׁמַנֵּי הָאָרֶץ, יִהְיֶה מוֹשָׁבֶךָ, וּמִטַּל הַשָּׁמַיִם, מֵעָל. 39 And Isaac his father answered and said unto him: Behold, of the fat places of the earth (or Oil of the earth) shall be thy dwelling, and of the DEW of HEAVEN from above;

From here Esav realizes that the Oil of the earth is his and not dependent on his behavior, but if he wants access to the Bread that comes from the Heavenly Dew, he has to at least serve G-d starting to the 31st level of purity.  And that this bread will be called Mon, for Mon Hu means both What is this?  and This is Money!  It is this point that Esav accesses his memory about ownership in this world, something he paid attention to when learning from his father Yitzchak since both he and his father were talented businessmen.  If one uses something or some implement 3 times, he becomes part owner of that thing or that implement, and he can access that thing forever.  This is a key thing if one does not want to serve G-d forever, but rather to have access to Money forever.  One needs to serve G-d to the 31st level of purity to access it, but after 3 days of serving G-d and accessing the Mon or the Money from Shamayim wrapped up by the Dew, one can access that Money forever!  What a concept!  What a blessing!  Serve G-d until the 33rd level of purity in order to build one's prosperity and Kingdom in this world, and the Servant need no longer be G-d's servant.  G-d's Kingdom on earth becomes his kingdom forever at the 33rd level of purity, for the 3rd day that the Mon fell was on Lag B'Omer!  And in this explanation, we have swerved into another concept.  Why did Rav Akiva's students stop dying on Lag B'Omer?  Because the Angel that represents Esav (Rome) in the Heavenly Court, only can accuse Ya'akov to the level of purity to which Esav serves and then stops serving G-d.  The Angel of Edom loses his claim to accuse Ya'akov above the 33rd level of purity.  Above the 33rd level, the one who counts the Omer is no longer trying to accrue wealth in Olam HaZeh, but to attach himself/herself to his/her Father in Heaven.
