In Genesis 15 we read about God\’s promise to Abram (Later he becomes Abraham). God takes Abram out to look toward heavens and "count" the stars.
In the Book of Formation, written by Abraham, he reveals the knowledge God gave him during that event. God showed him the structure of the spiritual system and the ten sefirot.
15:17 God said "I brought you out of Ur of the Chaldees to give you this land to inherit it." "לָתֶת לְךָ אֶת-הָאָרֶץ הַזֹּאת, לְרִשְׁתָּהּ". "The Land" "הָאָרֶץ" in this form always refers to the Land of Israel where the whole creation began with the Aleph and centered around the "רֶץ" (more on this subject another time.)
Abram asks God "whereby shall I know that I shall inherit it?".
Why did Abram question God about this? Didn\’t he believe God, when he was at his presence?
The answer is that at that moment Abram realized that he was responsible for whatever happens in his life. The "stars" and the spiritual system showed him a different future. His question was correct and in place.
God didn\’t delay the answer and immediately instructed Abram with a strange request. "Bring me a heifer עֶגְלָה, a goat וְעֵז and a ram וְאַיִל, each three years old, along with a dove and a young pigeon". The English translation talks about three years, in other places there are other translation/interpretations.
The important point here is that there are 3,3,3 elements. Together 9 + 2 (dove and pigeon).
The tree of Life has three triangles + Malchut at the base. So here we have 9+2=11 elements. We know that there are 10 Sefirot so what is the connection here?. Abraham in Sefer Yetzirah (The Book of Formation) tells us that there are 10 sefirot and NOT nine, and then he continues, 10 and NOT eleven.
The structure of the Tree of Life has 10 sefirot. When the light flows through the tree of life there are 11 sefirot which are active (Including Da\’at) and 9 sefirot(Malchut in the dark) when they\’re not active.
All elements split in the middle to give opportunity to Abram to connect them together. This is the point where Abram has established his channel to the sefira of Chessed.
In the continuation of the chapter, God reveals the future to Abram. All the elements in this story are deeply coded but we can find few key elements that connect to the future. The word "פְּגָרִים" (carcasses) has the numerical value of 333 and "עַיִט" (bird of prey) is 89. Together we get 422 (the value of the word "שבעים", seventy). By adding 2 for the kolel we get 424, which equals to Mashiach Ben David. The great Torah commentator, Rashi, comments on this verse (15:11) for the word "וַיַּשֵּׁב" (=318) that it implies to The Mashiach.
For those who understand this (כחבחגתנהימ = 546 x 10 = 5460 + 318 = 5778 (=2018))
