Rav Y.Z.L tz"l also makes this same connection between the nachash and Mashiach I believe in his peirush and reflects on the nachash which was raised on a pole in the desert...its very interesting.
John 3:9-159 "How can this be?" Nicodemus asked. 10 "You are Israel's teacher," said Jesus[Yeshua], "and do you not understand these things? 11 I tell you the truth, we speak of what we know, and we testify to what we have seen, but still you people do not accept our testimony. 12 I have spoken to you of earthly things and you do not believe; how then will you believe if I speak of heavenly things? 13 No one has ever gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven—the Son of Man. 14 Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, 15 that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life.
What is the meaning of this strange coincidence between Christians and Jews? The jewish sages say there are 613 commandments [mitzvot] in the Bible, but the central affirmation of Christian faith is John 3:16 which says: 16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. [...]".In western languages like English, Latin [and I believe Greek also] we write from left to right but in Hebrew we write from write to left, so 3:16 is equivalent to all 613 mitzvot?
In the Legeng of Shimon Kepha, the story that Mr. Cohen Alloro cites in his videos and book there is something that intrigued me. In one version of the story, which I already knew for some time, there is a mention to Shimon as HaKalpona. Who was that man that helped the sages to led astray the Jews that followed Jesus[Yeshua] from the Jewish people?
A theory? Justin Martyr, a man of Syria who became a follower of Jesus[Yeshua] and moved to Rome wrote to letters, I believe to the Roman Emperor[and Senate] defending the faith. In the second letter called Apologia 2 he said that he declined to get the favour of some of the Roman elite and people that became followers of a certain man from his land, Syria, who is identified as Simon Magus, the one who was confronted by Simon Peter in Shomron after tried to buy the gift of the Spirit.
Justin tells us that this man, which some say can be identified as Simon Magus, had a statue erected in his honour at the banks of river Tibris in Rome, between the two bridges. Just go to Google to find out how many ancient roman bridges survived and were already erected at the time Justin wrote his Apologia 2. Try to figure out how many fit the period, Justin lived during the firts part to the half of the second century, 130s.
You will find out that two bridges that fit into the period are just in front of the Vatican City and Santo Angelo Castle[the tomb of a roman emperor which was later turned a papal fortress. Altought the Castle has its own bridge that serves it the fact is that it has a very interesting caracteristic, it is famous by its statues on and around the building, dating back not as old as to the second century, but which were erected to replace older statues that were placed there before, and so on [...].
Does it mean that Roman Catholicism is the amalgamation of old traditions from paganism and jewish religion, which began with the cooperation between Simon Magus and certain jewish sages?
Some people say that only believers can confess Jesus[Yeshua] as Lord but the demons that the Mashiach expelled used to bow and confess that he is the Saint, the Son of God, and he used to command them to shut up and to expell them.
Paul, the apostle, expelled the spirit that was in a medium which was trying to participate in the preaching, following him and his companion on streets claiming: "People of this city, pay attention to these man, because they preach words of salvation from the living God".
I'm not sure, but it seems that in the Jewish Commentary of the New Testament, the commentator shows that when Simon Peter rebuked Simon Magus for asking to receive the gift of the Spirit by money he, Peter, quoted somebody [Moses?] who was warning that those who disobeyd would became the one through whom idolatry would be introduced in Israel.
Musician Ariel Cohen Alloro. Celtic music seems strangely "esoteric".
Nice site with many interesting words.
Sholom Brother,Where can I find out more about that correlation between nochosh and moshiach? Thank you!Sholom,Avrohom
Ariel Cohen Alloro's channel on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/user/yimachshmoAriel Cohen Alloro on Blogspot, showing something of his book: http://yimachshmo.blogspot.com/On his blog you can find full videos in english and hebrew.Tell others there is an orthodox jew in Jerusalem that shows Yeshua is the Mashiach, harmonizing what he presents with kabalah and chassidut, and according to chalacha.You can contact him and try to buy his book, if you read hebrew.Baruch raba b'shem Hashem.
Have you seen this video of Rav Alloro yet?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z-B0_Nnuh6I&feature=related
Shalom,I would like to say that I understand what R. Alloro is talking about...but I have no idea...may Hashem teach me! But I am glad he believes in Yeshua. Shalom.
...what I meant is...maybe there is someone who does understand. The references are far too vague for me. I do not see the correlations and connections that he speaks of. I would like to see him elaborate more. Anyone?Sholom.
He's speaking on a sod level and application of study concerning certain verses in Torah and the prayers found in the siddur handed down by our Sages of blessed memory. Hebrew is a multidimensional language, and the application of acronyms to teach certain concepts is used in Kabbalah and other mystical studies to reinforce lower level concepts found in drash, remez, and peshat.It is based on the belief that all letters in Torah serve multiple purposes, and that everything in Torah (words, phrases, letters, juxtapositions, contexts, etc) is instructive of some facet of truth. This is true also of the wisdom of the Sages who compiled the prayers, and are just as wisely written for our instruction.Therefore he makes the case for Yeshua being the Mashiach from a globally accepted (within Judaism) legitimate Jewish hermeneutic employed and accepted by the most educated of rabbis and their closest disciples. The particular use of sod (secret level of hermeneutics) he employs in the videos deal with acronyms, based on the belief that HaShem in his Wisdom arranged such wording for our benefit of understanding a facet of truth about what the peshat (literal) text of those words in how also the acronym derived from the text, employed by HaShem, relates to other teaching about the text itself.Case in point:We learn of the name of Mashich in Numbers 27 when HaShem responds to Moses's prayer to raise up a shepherd over the congregation: Yehoshua bin Nun. Take the letters Ybn and it spells Yavan, or Javan, the father of Kittim, the Romans. Since Moshe is mentioned literally before "Yehoshua bin Nun" this teaches us that "Javan" ie his sons (the Romans) will preach about a Messiah named Yehoshua (Jesus) who leads people away from Mashiach. Yet spelled backwards Nby, spells Navi, which is "Prophet" in Hebrew, teaches us that there is a Yehoshua who is the Prophet (who is like Moses ie the Mashiach), and that this Yehoshua will lead people back to Moshe Rabbeinu (repentance to Torah).
Rav Ariel Cohen Alloro makes some good points. Perhaps if we view B'resheet 1 we might even see more? Sentence 7, 16 and 25. the first word of each sentence when translated, "so he made." Now as the first word B'resheet gives answer to the question. When was the beginning? Answer is seen by moving the same letter of the word around in a different order and the answer is the 1st of Tishri.In the same regard this first word in sentences 7, 16 and 25 asks a question and when the letters are changed around it gives an answer. The answer is Yeshua. Not only this but their is a mathematical relationship between these three numbers 7, 16 and 25. 7 is already reduced to its lowest digit but 16 can be redued (1+6=7) and the same can be done with 25 (2+5=7). Not only this but there are exactly 8 sentences between sentences 7 and 16 and exactly 8 between 16 and 25.(Not talking verses but sentences but in this case the English and Hebrew are the same) Like ELS (equal letter sequence) in the codes. Only I call this ESS (equal sentence sequence). We know that if we look at the gematria of Jesus in the Greek it is 888. So too if we look at the Oxygen atom as it has 8 electrons, 8 protons and 8 neutrons. Yeshua is our life and we could hardly live without oxygen either). This is the way it is identifed as an oxygen atom. In fact the analemma forms the figure 8 in the heavens. If you are not familiar look on the side of a globe or better still just google analemma and see the pictures and information. There were 8 souls saved on board the Ark. 8 was the day on which the Israelites were to circumcise their sons. 8 is the sign of the covenant. I could go on but you should get the point. Eight is the number of New Beginnings and after the seventh day or Shabbath of the week comes the 1st day which then is the 8th day and the week starts over again. Even the Feasts of the LORD were 7 and at the end of the 7th day of the 7th Feast (Tabernacles) there was another day given that was not part of Tabernalces. Called the last day and it was the Eighth!Now given the information above about Yeshua being the one who Created all things you might care to re-read John 1:1-3. This time I am sure you will add to your understanding as to how the scriptures actually confirm this very fact from the Hebrew text!
I have no ideal why my comments were posted three times. I only hit the publish button once that I was aware of. I am sorry for the multiple posts.
Read Br'sht 3:14 and then John 3:14 (Pi)The Nazarenes (ha-notsir) have always known this connection.The Nachash is the same as the Hindu God of rebirth and resurrection called Nagas, and Sh-isha, and Gan-Isha. Ysha.
Hey - if someone has the time to write a little SUMMARY about what R. Ariel is saying - I would so much appreciate that! I just don't get it! (And I do speak his language, generally speaking, but apparantly not in this instance!)What are his key points?????? Someone????? Thank you! Shalom in Jesus Christ.
@ Shvt - can you elaborate more on the PI reference? Why not Exodus 3:14? Do Genesis & John refer to PI somehow? Would you elaborate? Thanks!God bless.
Especially Exodus 3:14. "I am that..."The code to understanding the symbol of Yesuah ha-notsir is in the number PI (3:14) which reveals the secret of the Gan-Eden Dream. We are all the characters in the dream of creation. Elhohim, Adam, Isha, ha-Nachash. - the shiny One is the catalyst for our souls descent into matter. Is it Original Sin or Original Desire to learn knowledge. It is El-ah wanting to incarnate in the world ?Genesis 3:14Exodus 3:14John 3:14 Galatians 3:13All of the characters in the Br'sht are within us. The entire Kingdom of God is within us (Luke 17:21)http://www.The-Kingdom-of-God-is-within-you.blogspot.com
PI : (Found this) Let's start with some properties of pi... First off, it's an irrational number, meaning basically that it cannot be represented by any fraction. Second, it's a transcendental number. That's a bit more complicated, but it means that pi is not the root of any algebraic equation. That means that pi cannot be derived through algebra, merely approximated. Pi was the second number proven trancendental (Lindemann, 1882), the first being the natural log, e (Hermite, 1873). Third, the known digits of pi never repeat, and are statistically random. That means that there are about as many 1's as 7's, and so on. Fourth, because pi represents a relationship between linear and curved structures (C=pi*r^2), it occurs with remarkable frequency in various fields such as engineering, biology, physics, etc. (as jalex pointed out); pretty much anytime you compare a line and a curve, pi is there. For more on transcendental numbers, see: http://sprott.physics.wisc.edu/pickover/trans.html or google "transcendental number". There are some interesting identities involving pi, e, and other common transcendentals.As far as secrets are concerned, there aren't any deliberate mathematical or scientific secrets regarding pi. There are, however, secrets related to mystical or religious beliefs venerating pi and other interesting numbers. Perhaps the most interesting body of mystical work is the Kabbalah, along with the rest of Jewish mystic numerology. Pi's importance there is that it cannot be explained, derived, or manipulated by the rules of Gematria. As such, it represents an essential component of reality which that tradition was not equipped to handle. A similar problem is encountered by any numerological system that does not already include transcendental numbers. That kind of gap is a problem that most traditions keep secret. Given that I'm not a member of any interesting mystical groups, I wouldn't know what any other secrets might be, and anyone that does is specifically forbidden from revealing them. If someone does, let the world know.
PI (3.14) is both transcendental and immanent (exists within all of nature) within everything. Just like the Aleph in the Bet (ABwun)
@ Shvt. I want to thank you for your explanation and also for your references. I really do appreciate you capsulizing the general issues. I would like to comment on the broad spectrum of all these mathematical and kabbalistic issues. But before I do, I want to say that I do not intend to necessarily reject them. I want to honor your position in the Kingdom of Jesus and I find it good to know you. But if you will permit me to use an analogy that it seems to me and to the Holy Spirit about all these mathematical calculations. Maybe this analogy is only suited for someone like me. And maybe indeed, others can find deeper satisfaction with the complexity of calculations. Maybe I am a simple mind. So I do not want to close the door to your being open to me since maybe indeed I can gain from your expertise. Ok.....with all that said....here is the analogy that appears to me. It is like being intimate with a spouse and like making all sorts of calculations of the pleasure and delight and connection between the 2 people. For me, I have benefitted from just loving my Spouse (Jesus). I come also (like R. Ariel) from rabbinic prodigy and so I have found the statement the rabbis have recorded as chief in messianic literature. They say that the world to come is "the righteous will sit with their crowns on their heads and NOURISH FROM THE SPLENDOR OF THE SHKHINA". I myself, very thankfully, have come to experience that event in my life -- right here on earth -- today!!! And how HAPPY I am!!! I cannot describe the HIGH!!! It's better than crack-cocaine!!! (Don't ask). So when I "nourish" from Him and His "Cloud of Glory" descends on me, it is like being with a spouse and engaging in intimacy with them. Now, again, maybe for some, He does inform them about the 3.14 of mathematical configurations and maybe for them, it is their delight. I tend to think of that as "mental ascent" and as "vain imagination" since, which of us will do that when we are (pardon me) making love to our spouse?!? Do we calculate the 3.14 of their curves or the velocity of our thrust (pardon me) and so on? I know - I don't! I still want to hear other people’s experiences, though. I can only say that "for me", when I have already "experienced" such delight and such intimacy with His Radiant Majesty, I really need no calculations but would rather just NOURISH SOME MORE, and some more, and some more!!!! And forever!!! Besides making me very "high", this nourishing "changes me" and adjusts me to be more "like" Him. Spending such time with Him makes us more ONE. I don't find myself needing to "make effort" to adjust my character but His Essence enters into me and possesses me so I am changed. That is exactly why Moshe's (Moses') face shone with the Glory. I would even (humbly) wonder if someone who makes these calculations has ever really experienced this tangible and radiant Presence of the Almighty but that is not for me to suppose or to guess. I still do want to see if I can learn more from the calculations.I hope it is ok to share this analogy. And I hope I am not being harsh or judgmental because that is not my intention. I am interested to remain open to the possibility that "both of us are right". Ok, enough of that.Can I ask you to explain more about the snake issue? I was under the impression that the snake was the deceiver. The snake is satan, is he not? So is that not the opposite of Messiah? I hope I did not offend you or anyone else. Thank you Shvt for your kindness in explaining what you have explained! Thank you very, very much.
Shalom! Does ANY ONE KNOW how could I contact Rav Ariel Cohen Alloro??
