Parshas Vayechi

In The End Of Days ©
{Bi Ah Chah Rees - Hah Yaw Meem}

By Dr. Akiva G. Belk

This study of mysticism in Hebrew Gematria is dedicated in the loving memory of Mr. Michael & Mrs. Chanah Sakash, may they rest in peace.

Parshas Vayechi is the first mention of the words Bi Ah Chah Rees - Hah Yaw Meem, meaning "In the end of days." The Torah mentions these words four times and the rest of Tenach mentions them only nine more times. They are rare when compared to other words and other subjects. This may seem odd because man has such a thirst for the future. Man attempts to uncover every stone surrounding the end of days... It is an extremely popular subject. It is often in the shell of our thoughts and hearts...

Why would a subject of this interest be discussed so little and be so elusive and evasive? Dear reader, that is because Hashem desires for us to focus on the NOW. A university student begins with their eye on the completion... on graduation... on the end. Yet to reach that goal the student must seriously focus on the NOW. That is how it is for us! We must take good care of the now to make it to the future.

So in the words Bi Ah Chah Rees - Hah Yaw Meem we should not expect to find an easy Gematria. Just as the end of days is veiled so are the mystical meanings of the words Bi Ah Chah Rees - Hah Yaw Meem. In the word Bi Ah Chah Rees {in the end} we observe the same Gematria as May Oor Chas Deem, meaning "In {the} Fiery {Furnace of the city} Kasdim." May Oor Chas Deem is in reference to Avraham Aveinu in Genesis 11:31{also see 28}.

The city was named after an incident between Avraham, his father Terah, a brother Charan, and King Nimrod. Avram {Avraham} broke all his father's idols - which were many- with an ax. He then left the ax in the hand of the largest idol and told his father that the largest idol had destroyed all the other idols. This was of course untrue. Terah realized the senselessness of Avram's story. He knew idols could not do what Avram claimed. Avraham used this to try to persuade his father to believe in the One true G-d. Terah refused. Terah took his son Avram before King Nimrod. Avram repeated the story to King Nimrod. He also knew idols could not do what Avram claimed. Avram used this incident to share about Hashem, the One true G-d, with King Nimrod.

One must understand that the land of Chaldea in which Nimrod was king had over 5,000 different idols. Terah, Avram's father, was an idol maker. It was a very lucrative business. So both Terah and King Nimrod had much to lose if Avram's doctrine of monotheism spread. That being the situation King Nimrod ordered that Avram be held for ten days while a court be convened to judge his actions. Avram's actions were judged. The court ordered that after three days he should be burned alive in the furnace of Kasdim. Most of the world {over 900,000 people} watched as Avram was cast into the fiery furnace. The guards who cast Avram into the furnace were burnt but Avram was untouched! King Nimrod ordered guards to retrieve Avram. They died in the attempt! Eventually King Nimrod acknowledged Hashem as G-d. Then Avram stepped forth unharmed. This is what the meaning of May Oor Chas Deem originates from.

Now how are May Oor Chas Deem and Bi Ah Chah Rees connected?

Both represent a fallen people who have forsaken the One and only G-d, Hashem.
We read the fourth and third usages of the words Bi Ah Chah Rees - Hah Yaw Meem in Deuteronomy 31:29 and 4:30: "For I {Mote} know after my death, that you will become depraved and you will veer from the way that I commanded you at the end of time... {then} When you {Kal Yisroel} are in distress and all these {terrible} things happen to you, at the end of time, you will return unto Hashem, your G-d, and obey him..."

This is why the emphasis MUST be on the NOW! It is the NOW that we MUST GUARD. Yet we honestly are failing... G-d Help us!

The Gematria of Bi Ah Chah Rees and May Oor Chas Deem are both 621.

Bi Ah Chah Rees
621 =
Sav = 400 Yud = 10 Reish = 200 Ches = 8 Aleph = 1 Bais = 2

May Oor Chas Deem
621 =
Mem 40 Yud 10 Dalet 4 Shin 300 Chof 20 - Reish 200 Vav 6 Aleph 1 Mem 40

Now remember that it is "in the end of days" that we the Jewish people will do shuvah... that we will repent... that we will return to Hashem. "For a Merciful Alm-ghty is Hashem, your G-d; He will not forsake you nor destroy you; nor will He forget the Covenant of your fathers that He swore to them..." Deuteronomy 4:31 In fact, holy reader, Hashem will rescue us even after our horrible past, THANK G-D!! We see this in the Gematria Mispar Katan of Bi Ah Chah Rees. The underlying support... the foundation of "in the end of days" is life... Chai! This life comes from G-d, the originator of life. This life takes many avenues including the resurrection of the dead and life after death.

Bi Ah Chah Rees
18 =
Sav = 4 Yud = 1 Reish = 2 Ches = 8 Aleph = 1 Bais = 2

18 =
Yud = 10 Ches = 8
