Four Redemptions

One of the prior posts indicates that there are in fact 4 different Geulot (Redemptions) that Am Yisrael is to experience. The full text was posted yesterday here.

The 4 listed are as follows:

  • Rejoice (The Hebrew רנו, pronounced Ronnu)
  • 60 (The Aramaic שיתין)
  • 66 (The Aramaic שיתין ושית)
  • 72 (The abbreviation ע"ב)

Rejoice, רנו, is in Gematria 256. I believe that I know what year this means. I will not explain that calculation, but there are conclusions:

  • The Final Redemption is (in this Zohar quote) divided in to 4 different mini-Redemptions.
  • We have already been redeemed twice. Once was hundreds of years ago, once was decades ago.
  • The First Redemption was completely hidden from the world, setting the latest date of the Geulah.
  • The Second Redemption (The Pekidah) was mostly hidden from the world, setting the stage for the next step.
  • The Third Redemption (The Zechirah) will be obvious, yet there will still be detractors.
  • The Fourth Redemption, Creation is perfected.

  1. It would seem that the רנו redemption was after four hours.

  2. How are you doing your calculation?

    It seems to me that if you take 3338 - 18 + 1200 + 66 and then subtract רנו, which is 256, you find the starting point, which has a certain logic to it.

  3. I think רנו is a hidden 70.

    ReplyDelete
  4. What points you to that? We're not off by much, I have it during the 4th. And if the hidden 70 is what I think it is (70 after 1200), then it is the same event, different aspects thereof.

  5. עין יוד נון = עין
    What happened in 5053?

    ReplyDelete
  6. 5053 is not the year I'm referring to.

    However, I believe that the Gematria refers to 1200 + 66, which is definitely a Geulah. I said subtract in order to see the logic. At the beginning, Chesed was pit against Din, and then in the Geulah it got assistance in standing up to Din.

  7. Do you mean רנו started at the time of רדו?

    (5309 - 2238)/12 = 255.92

  8. That was to tease. I knew you would write this.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Alas you have caught me in my predictability. Does it not make sense to you? If then the Tikkun was done, then the 70 that you mention was prevented from occuring.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Yes, it makes sense.

  11. While we're on the topic of decoding the meaning of Ronu, let's look at another one, Ra'ad.

    כעת לסוף יומיא, כפום שעתא דיומא, בעידן די זרח שמשא, מן יומא שתיתאה, בשעתא דיזדמנון לפום מנין שנין, דיובל ושמטה כחדא, דאיהו רע"ד מן יומא שתיתאה. כעת זמינא קלא חדא לאתערא מרום רומי רקיעין, קלא עציב במרירו, מה דלא הוה הכי מן יומא דאתברון עלמין:

    Haev you figured out this section of the Zohar Chadash?

    ReplyDelete
  12. If I understand you correctly (from elsewhere), Daniel 9's 70 is the same period of time as the 60, 66, 72.

    What is the event mentioned at 7 weeks?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Melech HaMoshiach. Zerubavel failed, but, so to say, well yet succeed. The seventy week have an early and a late interpretation. In the late interpretation the seven weeks are after the 62 weeks.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Slight confusion. The cutting off is at *both* 62 and 69 or just 69? Motza Hadavar is 5746?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Both - 69 is 62 calendar years after מצא דבר להשיב ולבנות ירושלם

    ReplyDelete
  16. So the entire late interpretation hinges on 69 through 70, though the timing is set long prior?

    ReplyDelete
  17. And the events of said 69th week is what is described in Daniel 11?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Yes, but the realization of these things derives from our Teshuva or lack thereof.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Regarding רע'ד it occurred to me that 5727 + 274 = 6001. That would be 6000 counting from Adam.

    ReplyDelete
  20. רע"ד seems to be something else, based on the context. Maybe I can translate this as well if I have time today.

    This Zohar is unique. It gives you a way to verify your calculation. "Shmitah and Yovel at once"

    ReplyDelete
  21. I realize the apparent context misfit. Shmita and Yovel are never together. And 5727 is a Yovel, and it's together with a kind of Shmita, perhaps.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Yovel = 50, Shmitah = 7. 57 on Din is 5702. But how does that relate to רע"ד? I don't know.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Please consider the following:

    Shmitah and Yovel is equal to 50 + 7 = 57.

    Ra'ad in Gematria is 274. From the hour the sun shines = 5500.

    5500 + 274 = 5774

    5717 + 57 = 5774

    ReplyDelete
  24. The shmita/yovel connection does not convince me. I propose

    5501 + 274 = 5775

    A shmita year adjacent to a Yovel year. The end of Golus. This is frightening. HaShem Yerachem.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Not much nafka minah.

    Do you agree that the hemshech of the maamar seems to be describing the beginning of the Zechirah?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Yes.
    It seems the opposite event is through a shift by רע'ד in the opposite direction. The Tikun of רנו added the טעם שמיטה to the count of chesed, making it occur on average very close to once per seven years, but it is a "Shmita" that can be closer to Yovel than being adjacent. And at the count of 499, Yovel was added in a "Shmita" year, רע'ד before the end of the day.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Speaking of overlap:

    Does 499 of the Left overlap a few days with שיתין?

    If the Tikkun lasts approximately 12 months, it would seem that this would be mekayem the words of the Ramchal about Chibur between Tsadik and Malchut.

    ReplyDelete
  28. The juxtaposition is very suggestive. I agree.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Due to the fact that in the end of the days Yisroel will get to taste from the book of the tree of life which is the Book of the Zohar they will merit to leave exile in Mercy!!

    Thus says the Zohar! It shall be Zachu! It shall be Achishena! And none of this sometime in the near future based on calculations!! Mehera Tazmiach!

    ReplyDelete
  30. It says B'Ita Achishena. Achishena will happen davka B'Ita. At the appointed time, we will yet merit to a softening of the redemption, if we do the right steps towards it. How will we know what to do? By knowing the tree of life.

    Today, you can fly from any place in the world to the Land of Israel within a day. Who would have thought that this would be? And your ticket is free of charge. And Nefesh B'Nefesh helps you financially. You are right. Such Mercy.

    Study what the Zohar says instead of an isolated statement. The way for Geulah Achishenah is explained. The Zohar gives hints as to what is right and what is wrong, and what to avoid, what provides merit.

    Leave physical exile. That is the beginning. Physical preceeds spiritual, awakening below preceeds awakening above. That is the teaching of the Zohar.

    I wrote in this post that there is a Keitz at 72. On the same parshah of the Zohar, it explains that it really comes before 72, even though we should have to wait for the end. That is the guaranteed Achishenah, as the GR"A explains there.

  32. So it would seem the Shechinah got out of the dust sometime between the 9th and the 30th of Av, 5730. However it must still leave Galus.

    ReplyDelete
  33. The following appeared in the Jewish press, if I understand correctly on 20 Av 5730:

    "... that which we yearned for, that for which we prayed and wept, and sat upon the cold stones each ninth of Av, here it is - at long last - the thing for which our grandfathers would rise in the middle of the night and shed hot tears to implore the Almighty for its merciful return.
    And here we sit, knowing that the dream has become a reality, seeing the vision become realization and casting - instead - our lot with the Nazis and Cleavers' and New Left! How sad for us and woe to a people that cannot learn from its own bitter history. It is time to go home."

    Written by rabbi Meir Kahane.

  34. The year 60 lasts 12 solar or lunar months?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Reading through the entire maamar in the Zohar Chadash and translating (which is taking a long time) leads me to believe that it starts from the Pekidah. perhaps it is 6000 - 274.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I suggested in a previous comment at a different post that the Pekidah was from 499 of the right until 499 of the left.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'm almost done, though I don't know if I will finish today davka. It should be a bit more clear then.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I suggested the above because the Pekidah should also take a "half" time, just like Zechira, even though the text says 60. So it could be around 60 with natural boundaries.

    ReplyDelete
  39. In which case the war of 5734 needn't be included since after the Pekidah the darkness increases.

    ReplyDelete
  40. You could include until the Yom Kippur war, saying it was at 499 and a half.

    ReplyDelete
  41. To consider the 6 Day War as the beginning is to make the Pekidah more obvious and fit more obviously the statements of the Ramchal, especially with causing a Teshuvah movement. 6 years later is a few months short of 5734, which I believe is fitting. The light fades over the 6 years, and then a strong "wake-up" to the new reality.
