Counting the Days

In this world we can reach deeper into the soul by hearing than by seeing. But good sight is also important. We see beauty and hear truth.

In Hebrew, dosage beauty, yofi = 100 = 10 squared. Truth, emet = 441 = 21 squared. Together they equal 541, a prime number, the gematria of Israel.

Jacob is truth – “truth to Jacob.” Rachel is beauty – “beautiful figure and beautiful countenance.” Truth falls in love and marries beauty.

Jacob and Rachel = 420. Truth and beauty = 541 = Israel. 420 & 541 = 961 = 31 (21 & 10, roots of truth and beauty), God’s Name El, squared!
Jews like to count, capsule
from money to days to letters of Torah and their gematria. Counting keeps us sane. But choose what counts most for you.

There are kings and counts. God is the king and we are the counts. God counts us like He counts the stars in heaven. We count most for Him.

Even before meeting Jacob Rachel knew that she was destined to marry him. Her beautiful countenance came from counting the days to marry him.

Leah thought that her destiny was to marry Esau, but her tears changed her destiny. “The gates of tears (to heaven) are never locked.”
