Mystery of Joseph and the Number 14

Blessed Anne Catharine Emmerich states that Joseph and his wife Asenath were associated by the Egyptians with Osiris and Isis. Osiris is represented by the figure of a Man as the constellation Orion. Orion also represents the man Enoch (chenoch or chanoch). The word chanoch associated with chinuch refers to a child or the training of a child. This alludes to the christ child or the mysterious child [a son of Joseph] of the Zohar.

Osiris' body was divided into 14 pieces and the 14 pyramids of Egypt are the image of the orion constellation that make up the divine man. Joseph was known as Dod (beloved/ dalet vav dalet)which adds up to 14 in gematria. The so-called Pharoah Djoser Teti is actually Yosef ha Dodi (thoth=dod=dodi). The name David also comes from dod and is 14 in gematria. The concept of Joseph and David are thus linked. The subterranean Temple has 14 stations beginning at the Shushan or Golden Gate. The word gold (ZHB) also has the gematria of 14 as does hand (YD). The letter nun is the 14th letter of the Hebrew alphabet. In the genealogy of Joseph in Matthew there are three lots of 14 generations which equal 42 - the number of God's Salvation or Redemption. The nun also represents a fish and sperm and thus is connected to the sefirah of yesod which is also called Tzadik and Joseph. The 14th part of the body of Osiris that was given to the fish was his phallus (yesod).

The pyramid complex in Egypt is a mirror of the heavenly realities. The Zohar Shemot states - "This song King Solomon poured forth when the Temple was erected and all the worlds, above and below, had reached their perfect consummation. And although concerning the exact time of its singing there is some difference of opinion among the members of the Fellowship, we may be certain that it was not sung until that time of absolute completion, when the Moon-the Shekinah-came to her fulness and was revealed in the full perfection of her radiance, and when the Temple had been erected in the likeness of the Temple that is above. The Holy One, blessed be He, then experienced such joy as He had not known since the creation of the world. When Moses set up the Tabernacle in the wilderness, another such was raised in the heavenly spheres, as we learn from the words: "And it came to pass... that the Tabernacle was reared up", the reference being to the other Tabernacle, to that which was above, namely the Tabernacle of the "Young Man", Metatron, and nothing greater. But when the first Temple was completed another Temple was erected at the same time, which was the centre for all the worlds, shedding radiance upon all things and giving light to all the spheres. Then the world was firmly established, and all the supernal casements were opened to pour forth light, and all the worlds experienced such joy as had never been known to them before, and celestial and terrestrial beings alike broke forth in song. And the song which they sang is the "Song of Songs", or, as we might render, "Song of the Singers", of those musicians who chant to the Holy One, blessed be He." The Temple in Jerusalem is also a Mirror of the two celestial Temples. In the angelic Temple St Michael the archangel is the High priest and in the highest Temple Metatron is the High Priest. Metatron is associated with the terms of Youth and Child (chanoch) which is why Enoch has been confused with Metatron. The Zohar Shemot states: "From this we see that the Holy One, blessed be He, actually gave Moses all the arrangements and all the shapes of the Tabernacle, each in its appropriate manner, and that he saw Metatron ministering to the High Priest within it. It may be said that, as the Tabernacle above was not erected until the Tabernacle below had been completed, that "youth" (Metatron) could not have served above before Divine worship had taken place in the earthly Tabernacle. It is true that the Tabernacle above was not actually erected before the one below; yet Moses saw a mirroring of the whole beforehand, and also Metatron, as he would be later when all was complete. The Holy One said to him: "Behold now, the Tabernacle and the ‘Youth’; all is held in suspense until the Tabernacle below shall have been built." It should not be thought, however, that Metatron himself ministers; the fact is, that the Tabernacle belongs to him, and Michael, the High Priest, it is that serves there, within the Metatron's Tabernacle, mirroring the function of the Supernal High Priest above, serving within that other Tabernacle, that hidden one which never is revealed, which is connected with the mystery of the world to come. There are two celestial Tabernacles: the one, the supernal concealed Tabernacle, and the other, the Tabernacle of the Metatron. And there are also two priests: the one is the primeval Light, and the other Michael, the High Priest below."

Joshua ben Nun is also called Youth and child who adores in the Tent. Zohar Shemot states: "It is concerning this that King David said: "Except the King, whose is the peace, and who is the Master of the House, build the house, they labour in vain that build it"-that is to say, the pillars. Except the Lord-the King, whose is the peace-guard the city, "the watchman waketh but in vain". This is the pillar upon which the Universe stands, namely the "Tzadik" who keeps waking guard over the City. The Tabernacle which Moses constructed had Joshua for its wakeful and constant guard; for he alone guarded it who is called the "young man", namely Joshua, of whom it says: "Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, departed not out of the Tent" (Ex. XXXIII, 11). Later in its history it was another "young man" who guarded it, namely Samuel (I Sam. 1l, 18), for the Tabernacle could be guarded only by a youth. The Temple, however, was guarded by the Holy One Himself, as it is written, "Except the Lord guard the City, the watchman waketh but in vain". And who is the watchman? The "young man", Metatron. And you, holy saints, ye are not guarded as the Tabernacle was guarded, but as the Temple was guarded, namely, by the Holy One Himself; for, whenever the righteous are on a journey the Holy One guards them continually, as it is written: "The Lord shall keep thy going out and thy coming in from now and forever" (Ps. CXXI, 9).’ Then they accompanied him on his journey for a distance of three miles, and, parting from him, returned to their own way, and they were moved to quote these words concerning him. "For he shall give his angels charge over thee to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands" (Ps. XCI, 11, I2); and "Thy father shall be glad and thy mother rejoice" (Prov. XXIII, 25)." Yeshua the high priest in Malachi also minsters in the heavenly Temple. The mysterious child of the Zohar is also associated with the sign of the fish and he is referred to as the son of the fisherking (Hamnuna Sava). Joshua ben Nun is a descendant of Joseph of the Tribe of Ephraim. The second foot-star of Orion is also called Saiph after Joseph and is the origin of the Greek word for Wisdom. The word yad (14 in Gematria) can also refer to the foot as in ancient Hebrew it meant any of the four appendages to the legs and arms.

In the Zohar it mentions Metatron as Chanoch M'Mana which means child from the Manna [eucharistic bread]. This is the one on whom they will look upon and weep. There is also a disagreement in Judaism whether the Passover Seder has 14 or 15 steps. The Passover begins on the 14th of Nisan. Rav Kaduri's letter reveals that the name of the Messiah is Yehoshua."This I have signed in the month of mercy,Yitzhak Kaduri. Yarim Ha’Am Veyokhiakh Shedvaro Vetorato Omdim [He will lift the people and prove that his word and law are valid.].

Another son of Joseph and David is Messiah Ephraim who is the Great Monarch Henry alluded to in Apocalypse 10. "And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire: And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices." The figure of Orion and his two feet are the heavenly representation of this Monarch who is the Lion that Roars. This Messiah Lion that roars is mentioned in 2 Esdras as the leader of the Lost Tribes of Israel (Ephraim). This Great Monarch is protected by St Joseph (the cloud), crowned by Our Lady (the Rainbow), lives in Divine Will as revealed to Luisa in the analogy of the Sun (the Sun)and moves in the power of Jesus (feet with pillars)through the Eucharistic Heart and the Immaculate Heart (two pillars of the visions of St John Bosco).He is also mentioned in Hoshea as the Lion of Ephraim that roars and in Amos as the Lion that roars.

"Hosea 11:9-10
לֹ֤א אֶֽעֱשֶׂה֙ חֲרֹ֣ון אַפִּ֔י לֹ֥א אָשׁ֖וּב לְשַׁחֵ֣ת אֶפְרָ֑יִם כִּ֣י אֵ֤ל אָֽנֹכִי֙ וְלֹא־ אִ֔ישׁ בְּקִרְבְּךָ֣ קָדֹ֔ושׁ וְלֹ֥א אָבֹ֖וא בְּעִֽיר׃אַחֲרֵ֧י יְהוָ֛ה יֵלְכ֖וּ כְּאַרְיֵ֣ה יִשְׁאָ֑ג כִּֽי־ ה֣וּא יִשְׁאַ֔ג וְיֶחֶרְד֥וּ בָנִ֖ים מִיָּֽם׃

I will not execute the fierceness of mine anger I will not return to destroy Ephraim for I am God and not man the Holy One in the midst of thee and I will not enter into the city. They shall walk after the LORD, he [Ephraim] shall roar like a lion when he[Ephraim] shall roar then the children shall tremble from the west [sea]."

The name Henry comes from the Hebrew Chenoch [Enoch]via the German Hunroch and Heinrich. Nostradamus calls him Chyren. This leads us back to Orion who is also said to represent Enoch (Anu). The Bible speaks of Orion and the Great Bear (Ursa Major)which is called King David's chariot in Ireland, the Great Chariot in France and Arthur's Chariot in Britian. The name Arthur refers to the Bear (Art) and represents the Messiah Manesseh brother of Messiah Ephraim.

You know, I frankly don't know what to make of this site any more. It becomes more and more unintelligible to me, day by day. I'm no longer clear what the author intends to achieve. Convergences between Catholicism and Judaism should be simpler, IMHO. When a long excursion around pyramidism is taken, I think the overall argument is in trouble.

Please, prove me wrong.

Dear Theo,

thank you for your comments. when discussing the concept of Joseph- Egypt is an important element as Joseph the Patriarch was ruler of Egypt and his Asenath was an Egyptian priestess etc. St Josesph also took the Holy family into Egypt. This website is about Jewish and Catholic mysticism and unless one knows alot about these topics many of my articles will be difficult to understand- they assume a certain level of knowledge. however i post them for those who do get alot out of them. many people do not think in a mystical way and thus it is better they concentrate on something else until they are ready. if you want something simpler then I suggest you buy my DVD's as i talk simpler than i write due to the level of my audience.

Teófilo de Jesús said...

I'm sorry, I didn't want to sound so harsh!

I do know "something" about Catholic mysticism but not much about postbiblical Jewish mysticism so I can't tell right away where the connections are. Hence my frustration.

I've been writing a short serial on the subject of Jewish and Catholic prayer that you are welcome to read and critique on my blog.

Thank you for your reply, explanation, and advice!


Aharon Yosef said...

dear theo,

no worries. maybe the earlier article on the Eucharist and Jewish mysticism will help. My writing are probably a bit cryptic especially if one doesn't know the basics of Jewish mysticism. I don't mind criticism if it comes out of a sincere desire to know - i get frustrated myself at times.

this is malachi ephraim, and after reading this piece; i must leave a comment for the author of such...dear sir, i know you and YOU KNOW ME; however, IF YOU TRULY BELIEVE IN ALL THAT YOU HAVE WROTE ABOUT THIS MOST PERTINENT SUBJECT MATTER, AND ALL THE CORRELATIONS IN REGARDS TO THE RISEN SUN, AND HIS STUNNING RAYS OF DIVINE LIGHT....AND IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHO MALACHI EPHRAIM IS...by now...then, please peruse my works, and tell me if YOU ECCE SIGNUM...because the Signs that you have highlighted, are somewhat obscured, although I DO SEE EXACTLY WHAT THOU SEEST!

A brilliant treatise on the spiritual power of the Number 14. I was looking for mystical significance of Osiris & 14, thank you for researching & writing about the Mystery of Joseph & the Number 14! Love + Light - Kelly Fleming

Thanks Kelly, I really appreciate your comments as some of my posts are difficult for some to understand if they don't have a good knowledge of Judaism and history. That some one as knowledgeable and educated as you in both Judaism and Catholicism should "get it" is consoling to me.

So all of your blog is about the Metatron, the shape of the constellation of Orion. The geometrical Metatron shape is also the shape of the ancient goddess figurine 25,000 ya. The ancients knew of the shape of the Metatron, and the shape of Orion and the full moon eclipse with the Precession of the Equinox, and equated it with the Star of David and Jacob's Ladder. The "Shining Ones" were the sun, moon, and planets. And the bible stories are about ancient mathematical and geometric observations of the cosmos. Naturally the Catholic church killed all references about the physical cosmos and made it all about the metaphysical. Neo-spiritualists continue this illusion. It'a all about ancient physics.
