Does 613 Mean Love?

We are either darkness or we are light. We should always desire to be light because light is truth and light is God. If we always love God then we are always light. But we are either light or darkness because we are not perfect but light and dark perfect one another. We are here to help each other be balanced.

And the LORD God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.

Genesis 2:18

613 Means Mizvot (Commandment)

Nobody is making a checklist of completed commandments. If we did, that would make us robotic. It would mean we are being oppressed by legalities since we are not choosing from our heart. It would mean being stuck in Egypt.

If we always love then wouldn’t we always be light? According to Judaism, wouldn’t love be completing the 613 commandments then? I believe that is what is special about this time in history — We don’t have to be Jewish to know we are doing the right thing!

But doing the right thing is and has always been Jewish. Today, looking back, we can all see that it has always been about the Jew. I realize, no matter what way we look at it, right or left, the Jew is love or chooses to be love.

Both Jews and non-Jews can agree that the Jew is Messiah!

While the biblical commandments number 613, there are in fact an additional 7 rabinical commandments. The Kabbalists explain that the Hebrew word for crown (keter—כתר) has the numeric value of 620, the sum of the biblical and rabbinical commandments.

Chabad.org — What is the significance of the number of God’s 613 commandments?

The crown is what we all are trying to achieve. The crown signifies perfection and is something the Bible states we will receive when we let our King (God) reign in our lives.

Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.

James 1:12

In the beginning, there were two trees. One tree was the tree of life, and the other was the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Humanity is the tree of knowledge of good and evil. We have made the journey through darkness to understand the light. We have learned evil to understand what is good. We have free will to love God or love what is good and then we receive the crown of life. We become the tree of life and live forever as God’s Bride.

We are Royalty

The feminine energy who loves God brings the masculine energy from heaven down to earth. When we have completed our journey through darkness we become light. The masculine energy is now seen in the woman. The man and the woman are ONE so the woman on earth who loves God becomes the man in heaven.

The man’s love is from north to south (earth to heaven) while the woman’s love is from east to west (Israel to the world).

The Jew

Next, the man and the woman are seen through the Jew.

God always reveals Himself through an image, which is the love relationship between what is the polar opposite of each other. They are ONE with two different distinct identities that complement each other. Religion is the science that is trying to define love in the physical and ego is the freedom that wants to make choices through a feeling that is spiritual.

Religion is the pathway to understanding God (the brain/masculine) and spirituality is the feeling to understanding God (the heart/feminine).

Earth is the physical that (in truth) is meant to have the experience of heaven (divine love). We are in a love relationship with one another.

The Golden Rule

All religions agree that the greatest commandment is to love God and love our neighbour as ourselves. But what religion has not done is learned to love the other.

Like darkness is not light and light is not darkness, instead, they are like oil and water. We have to learn to be balanced. We love what is common but separately in our identity to see how what is different is actually there as a complement to make each other into better people. We are ONE but remain in our own identity. Like the man is not a woman in the physical and vice versa but each of us have either masculine or feminine energy. The male energy is giving and the female energy is receiving. How we use our energy (negatively or positively) is creating our reality. The masculine energy is Jewish and the feminine energy has the free choice to love the Jew.

The feminine on earth is in exile. She is trying to find her true self. Truth is found in the Jew but this is the hardest revelation to accept that removes our darkness and lets us see our truth. Love breaks our curse of separation. The hardest truths are the hardest to discover because we have to fight our own selves to find them. We have to desire to find them. We find them in the other.

Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. 

Matthew 7:7-8

The Jews and the Gentiles have always been polar opposites since the beginning of time, but it is always the Jew who is the masculine energy or spirit that is uniting us both together as ONE.

When the man and the woman (Jews and Gentiles) love one another, this is only because they both love God in heaven. God is love. The love between Jews and Gentiles makes a baby who is Messiah and the whole world knows His name.

It is my prayer that we see the Jew in one another and begin our new reality of being in love.
