Before you read this article, I need to ask you a few questions, for this is written specifically for the Lamed-Vovnik who need to be awakened in the world. The 2012-3 television series ‘Touch’ created by Tim Kring that aired on Fox for two seasons, was a brilliant depiction of the Lamed-Vovnik, where Kiefer Sutherland’s autistic son Jake connected with the universe via a series of numbers, that seemed random in the beginning. In reality, they turn the cogs of Heaven, deliver messages, pray the wicked back from the brink of darkness, and even right wrongs from their bed while asleep, yet are often diagnosed with disabilities like Jake.

Have you had disturbing dreams of heaven, hell, or the inner workings of the heavens? Have you woken in the middle of the night remembering a dream, where you were helping others in the world, but it seemed too bizarre to be real? The world’s time revolves around the primordial point of Jerusalem… do you sleep weird hours of the day that coincide with the daytime hours of Jerusalem? Yes, these might seem like crazy questions, but they are absolutely necessary in the Age of the Woman, which will drastically change from 21 December 2020 onwards. 2020 is the year everything changes! Too many of the Lamed-Vovnik see these “dreams” as mental illness, or bizarre nightmares, but they are not ― they are a gift given to one of the many Princely or Levite families of the Lamed-Vovnik or “36 Concealed Righteous Ones” in each generation that greet Shekhinah, and re-establish the connection of the Temple within,[1] preventing the destruction of the universe. This means if you have any of these dreams, first establish your family heritage to see if you have any Jewish heritage. If you tick that box, then write your dreams down, and see if you are assisting humanity in those dreams. I have known two Lamed-Vovnik in my lifetime, and both of them first believed they were nightmares, until they realized it was really a gift to assist humanity. If there is darkness, chaos, and judgement in the world, it means the Lamed-Vovnik are leaving the world. If we are not training the new generation, who is going to underpin the world?

Without the Lamed-Vovnik, the world will plunge into chaos, because the צַדִיקִים נִסתָּרים ל”ו (Lamed Vav Tzaddikim Nistarim) meaning the “36 Concealed Righteous Ones” in each generation at any time who underpin the world, meaning 2×18 is 36 Concealed Righteous Ones. The letter צ (Tzaddi) are the Tzaddik (the Righteous) meaning “justice” or “judges”, for it is written: “Every valley shall be raised up, every mountain and hill made low; the rough ground shall become level, the rugged places a plain” (Isaiah 40:4).[2] Essentially it means, “Blessed they that wait לֽוֹ [the Lamed Vav, meaning “for Him”]” (Isaiah 30:18), speaking of YHVH and Shekhinah as they “rise together”and the thirty-six companions who commune with Her daily.[3] The Lamed-Vav are given over “for Him” in His service, and commune with Him daily. Babylonian Talmud, Sukkah 45b reveals: “The numerological value of לֽוֹ (lo), spelled lamed vav, is thirty-six, alluding to the fact that there are at least thirty-six full-fledged righteous individuals in each generation… those who enter even without requesting permission, for whom the gates of Heaven are open at all times. They are very few indeed.”[4] The Lamed-Vovnik (36 righteous) in each generation at any time underpin the world, for when one dies in the world, the world darkens a little at a time, slowly dying, moving towards the End of Days, when “darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the LORD rises upon you (Zion) and his glory appears over you” (Isaiah 60:2).[5]

Rabbi Isaiah Bassano taught Rabbi Moshe Chaim Luzzatto to devote himself to the study of  “the total perfection of Divine service: to the Eternal, the fear of the Eternal, the cleaving to the Eternal, and to all of the aspects of piety,”[6] for this is the path of the Just Man or Just Woman (“36 Concealed Righteous Ones”) who make a stand for justice and righteous, sometimes in prayer, dreams, and sometimes when they are called to action, but they never reveal who they are… “Many are called, but few are chosen” (Matthew 22:14), and in the End of Days, the Beasts will rise up, and “go to war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will defeat them because he is Lord of all lords and King of all kings. And his called and chosen and faithful ones will be with him.” (Revelation 17:14). Emilia Bassano-Lanier wrote much on this subject in the Sonnets and in Salve.

The problem is many of the Lamed-Vovnik do not realize who they are or how to achieve their destiny, for they lack the teaching of Torah (the Bible). It is time for these people to believe in themselves, to search out the Torah, study the Bible, the codes within the Bible, for there are keys everywhere. Rabbi El’azar taught, “The LORD is my light and my salvation — so why should I be afraid? The LORD is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble?” (Psalm 27:1-2).[7] If we gaze upon the supernal light of the Lord (YHVH) the light of God will be seen upon us, “Arise, Jerusalem! Let your light shine for all to see. For the glory of the LORD rises to shine on you” (Isaiah 60:1).[8] It is time for the Lamed-Vovnik to arise!
