Satan's Synagogue

Revelation 3:9 - “And behold, I give those from the synagogue of HaSatan who say concerning their nefeshot that they are Jewish but they are not, but they lie, behold, I shall make them to come and to worship before your feet and to know that I have loved you.”
It was July and in the searing heat perhaps one heard the bloodcurdling screams before one saw the actual ruins of the city. Jerusalem smoked and flamed as Titus’ legions, V Macedonica, X Fretensis, XII Fulminata, and XV Apollinaris proved to its inhabitants that this time they would not be passed over (the siege had begun in April during Passover)! Some 20,000 Roman soldiers and their auxiliaries were reducing the Temple to rubble and slaughtering all those who opposed them. Perhaps this was Hell on Earth! Only those whom the Romans smiled upon among the Jews would prosper. And Satan would begin the building his synagogue.
Yah Shua HaMashiach (Jesus Christ) was born seventy years before. His followers, the Talmidei Yah Shua HaMashiach (“disciples of Jesus Christ“, the term “Christian” would not be common outside of the Greek world nor even be used among His disciples to describe themselves for almost a century), still observed the Holy Days as He had commanded them to and so the loss of the Temple was almost as grave to them as to the non-believing Jews. But unlike the non-believers, they had the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit) to comfort them.

The Foundation
When the second Temple was destroyed by the Romans the center of both Jewish politics and religion shifted to the synagogue. The Sadducees, priests, and Levites found themselves displaced and rapidly waning in influence and power. Akiba ben Joseph was impressed by the knowledge of the Pharisees and decided to study at the only Jewish university that the Romans then allowed.
This university was established by Rabbi Johanan ben Zakkai who earned the right to establish and maintain the only Roman approved Jewish college after the Jewish revolt of A. D. 66 through 72. He earned this right by having himself smuggled out of the besieged Jerusalem to the Roman General Vespasian and accurately predicting that Vespasian would soon be chosen Roman Emperor. In gratitude, Vespasian allowed Zakkai to establish a university when all other institutions of Jewish learning were forbidden and closed down or destroyed. Zakkai was both a Pharisee and a teacher of Kabbalah (Jewish witchcraft). Thus in a single act, the Pharisees gained control of Jewish higher education.
The final rift between Jews and Christians occurred during the Bar Kokhba Revolt against Rome about A. D. 132. Rabbi Akiba ben Joseph declared Simeon ben Kosiba to be the Messiah and King of Israel (Akiba changed ben Kosiba’s name to bar Kokhba - meaning “son of the star“). The Talmidei Yah Shua HaMashiach refused to join the revolt for obvious reasons and were branded traitors. As such, they were persecuted (and executed) in those areas under the rebels’ control. It took the Romans four years and the loss of an entire legion (the XXII) to destroy the rebels, but the Jewish losses were perhaps even greater than that of the Holocaust some 1810 years later. After such losses on both the Messianic (Christian) and non-Messianic Jewish sides, emotions were so high and deep that they would barely associate with each other or even acknowledge that they shared a common heritage. The Messianic Jews faded into the background (but never disappeared completely) to be overshadowed by their gentile brethren. The surviving non-Messianic Jews ignored the fact that Rabbi Akiba was a false prophet and Kokhba a false messiah. So who was Rabbi Akiba and Simeon ben Kosiba?
Akiba ben Joseph had not only impressed his teachers at the university with his intelligence but with his stubbornness as well. In spite of being flogged five times, he refused to be silenced. He surpassed his teachers in learning and gradually exceeded them in influence and power. He set his mind to creating a new position to replace the priests and prophets. The casual title of “Rabbi” (“master/teacher”) was to become an office whose holders could sentence people to death. Indeed, not only were the priests and prophets to be replaced by the Rabbis, but the supremacy of the Torah (the “law” = the books of Moses) as well. Akiba would make the requirement that a true Rabbi must be able to reverse the meaning of a scripture and use it to justify any action.
Akiba propagated the lie of a secret “oral torah“ (supposedly handed down from Moses himself) to supplement the written one. After all, it would be difficult to control the masses if they believed that they had access to all of the Word. Now they would believe that only the Rabbis had such knowledge. Within three decades, Akiba had succeeded in bringing many Jews into his fold and needed only an excuse to eliminate all of the others.
Simeon ben Kosiba was both a man of action and a Jewish ultra-nationalist. He chafed at the Roman yoke and longed to rebuild the Temple as both the center of Jewish religion and the symbol of Jewish nationalism. He found a ready ally in Akiba and they began preparing the Jewish nation for a full scale revolt against the Roman Empire. Once the hostilities began to spread, Akiba galvanized the rebellion in Judea by declaring Simeon “King Messiah“.
Akiba’s declaration had the opposite effect in Galilee. The Talmidei Yah Shua HaMashiach knew that Bar Kokhba was not the Messiah and recognized Akiba as a false prophet. The Talmidei Yah Shua convinced thousands of other Jews of these facts. Whatever actions had begun against the Romans in Galilee quickly ceased. Bar Kokhba was livid and Akiba declared the followers of Yah Shua to be heretics and traitors. While Judea would be devastated and depopulated as a result of the rebellion, with a few notable exceptions Galilee would see relative peace.
When the Roman Emperor Constantine made Christianity the official religion of the Roman Empire, the Talmidei Yah Shua HaMashiach were supplanted by the “Church”. As a creature of the state, the “Church” and the Bible were molded to serve the interests of the state. Innumerable true believers were exiled and/or martyred by the “Church” resisting the suppressing of its Jewish roots and the adoption of pagan beliefs and rituals. Descendants of these (the Coptic and Nestorian Christians) survive to this day! Thus the gentile Christians lost their Jewish roots and an indespensible part of their true religion. Remember, the gentile Christians are a graft onto the olive tree of Israel! No graft can survive without the roots of the tree it has been grafted onto!

The Edifice is Built
With the destruction of the second Temple and the demise of all of the rituals directly associated with it, the way was paved for Satan to fill the vacuum created. He succeeded in supplanting the Talmidei Yah Shua HaMashiach and now worked to undermine the remainder of Elohim’s (God’s) chosen people. To this end, he enslaved them with their pride!
The roots of Kabbalah are deep indeed! Kabbalah (Hebrew: קַבָּלָה) is the mystical aspect of Judaism. It refers to a set of cryptic teachings now meant to define the inner meaning of both the Old Testament Bible and the Talmud and to explain the significance of Jewish religious observances. Kabbalah literally means "receiving", and is sometimes transliterated as “Cabala“, “Kabbala“, “Kabala“, “Kabalah“, “Qabalah“, or other renderings. It is called “receiving” and “tradition” because the studying of the works without a teacher is considered useless. It is important to note that in all religious Jewish mysticism the catchphrase "those who know don't tell, and those who tell don't know" is one of its foundations.
That it is the most potent form of magick is evidenced by the many elements adopted from it by all other forms of magick. Furthermore, many elements of Kabbalah are found in Freemasonry, Golden Dawn, Renaissance Theurgy, Rosicruianism, and Theosophy! Though the first prominent Kabbalistic work was the Zohar, its roots are traced back to ancient Egypt when Israel was captive there. In fact, its true beginning are older still!
Abraham was from Ur. Ur was one of the most important cities in the world’s oldest civilization. Five hundred years before the first Egyptian learned to write or use metals, the Sumerians had fine poetry, great cities, monumental architecture, and extensive knowledge of the heavens. Most of the book of Genesis may be traced to Sumeria! No doubt this and other knowledge was passed down from Abraham to his descendents.
In Egypt, Abraham’s seed both taught and learned from the Egyptians. The so called “Star of David” (David had nothing to do with it!) is first evidenced in the Pharaoh Akhenaton’s royal seal (over 300 years before David!). Akhenaton was contemporary enough to have been well acquainted with the Hebrews and their exodus, and he promoted the worship of one god (Aton-Ra » Yah Veh?) at the expense of the traditional Egyptian gods.
Solomon is both known for his wisdom and his folly. Though he built the first Temple, he allowed his many foreign wives to keep chapels for their false gods. He is also recognized as a master (if not THE master) of alchemy and magick! The use of Elohim’s holy names are indispensable to the successful summoning, controlling, and banishing of spirits. Solomon’s seal (incorporating the “Star of David”) is considered more potent than the pentagram in magick rituals. And Hebrew script is considered more potent in written incantations than any other language. The division of Israel after Solomon’s death was a direct result of his straying from his father’s path and violating the Torah. Only Yah Veh’s great love for, and promises to, David saved Solomon’s reign.
In spite of the exodus and rise of Israel as a great nation under Moses, David, and Solomon, Egyptian influence never fully left it (as evidenced by Jezebel’s seal). Perhaps the hundreds of years that Israel spent in captivity there had left a permanent affectation. As Israel wandered from Elohim’s path, it often adopted Egyptian occultism and found its way into Kabbalah.
Thus Akiba’s “oral law” was nothing less than Kabbalah! Until fairly recently, only some well-educated Rabbis and those people well-versed in some form of magick had access to any of this knowledge. The Zohar is the first known text to explore and explain Kabbalistic concepts.
The Zohar was supposedly written about the time of, or shortly thereafter, Yah Shua (by a Pharisee? - Akiba himself?), but the first know publication came out in the late 1200’s in Castile (now Spain) and is often credited to Moses deLeon. It is without a doubt the most important work of Kabbalah in existance. According to the Zohar, Torah study is divided into four levels:
Peshat, the simple meaning of the text;
Remez, literally "hint[s]"—biblical allusion and allegory;
Derash, i.e. midrash, Rabbinic scriptural exegesis; and
Sod, which is the Kabbalah, the secret inner meaning of the Torah. Kabbalah is considered, by its followers, as a necessary part of the study of the Torah - the study of Torah being an inherent duty of all Jews. Its main theme is humanity’s ability to shape Elohim’s creation to its liking. It is an “enchanting” volume in every sense of the word! As with all witchcraft, Kabbalah glorifies the practitioner and reduces our Elohim to a mere mechanism. In essence, it teaches the practitioner how to use Elohim’s own universal laws against Him! This is why the Torah prohibits the practice of witchcraft whether for “good“ or “evil“.
Following the Zohar, John Dee (1527-1608), Isaac Luria "Ari" (1534-1572), Chayim Vital (1543-1620), Shabbetai Zvi (1626-1676), Gaon of Vilna (1720-1797), Rabbi Ashlag (1886-1955), Yehuda Berg, and many others have developed and revealed what has become modern Kabbalah. As our knowledge of the universe increases Kabbalah evolves. As our world “shrinks”, Kabbalah expands.
Note that Zionism adopted the “Star of David” as its national symbol. Now the flag of Israel is burdened by that image (at least its national crest has its true symbols - the menorah and the olive tree!). Imagine if any nation had adopted the pentagram as its national symbol! Imagine the U. S. flag with a pentagram at its center!
Just as “Christianity” adopted many pagan beliefs and rituals to be acceptable to non Jews, modern Kabbalah itself is also adapting to be palatable to people of all beliefs. The “Tree of Life”, for example, (a central part of Kabbalah) is being translated into many different beliefs and is the basis for a “one-world religion“.
Kabbalah has been disseminated worldwide through the Jewish Renewal Movement. Religious cooperation has been established by Rabbi Zalman Schachter. A founder of the international Jewish Renewal Movement, Schachter is among the best known Jewish intellectuals and writers of the past 75 years. Schachter moved from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Boulder, Colorado sometime around 1997. He led Naropa Institute’s World Wisdom Foundation. Rabbi Shelly Moss said in a Boulder Planet newspaper article, “His presence is just one factor that brings Jews and Buddhists to town and successfully bridges the two spiritualities.”
For decades, Buddhists have had a strong presence in Boulder, Colorado – home of the Naropa Institute and about a dozen established Buddhist congregations. The Naropa Institute teaches all forms of pagan religions! Look it up for yourself on the internet! The Jewish Renewal Movement has brought in the occult teachings of Kabbalah to the Rabbi’s internationally and to their congregations. They persist in teaching their ancient occultism and deny the crucified and risen messiah Yah Shua.
So who belongs to Satan’s synagogue? Not the “Satanists”! HaSatan has his own church whose members openly delight in doing evil. No, the members of his synagogue all see themselves as spiritual beings exploring their “Jewishness” through Kabbalah. They are not evil, merely deluded (and damned!)! Just as most practitioners of “good” or “white” magick see themselves as being beneficial, so most Kabbalahists see themselves as helpful (and very powerful) Jews. Their pride grows with their power. Power corrupts as it grows. But as Revelation predicts, it is they who shall come and to worship before our feet and to know that Elohim loves us!
We are to exalt Yah Veh Sabaoth and Yah Shua ben Elohim. This is an eternal holy calling as we will glorify our heavenly Father for all time. We are the ministers of the circumcision of the truth of Elohim, as Yah Shua is - “Now I say that Yah Shua HaMashiach became a minister of the circumcision of the truth of Elohim, to confirm the promises made unto our fathers. And that the Gentiles (nations) might glorify King Sovereign Yah Veh Sabaoth for His mercy; exactly as it is written. For this cause I shall avow to thee among the Gentiles and psalm unto thy name.” (Romans 15:8-9)

Prayer: O’ Yah Veh Sabaoth, sever these unholy roots of Kabbalah from the olive tree of Israel. Let the graft of Your gentiles be restored to that olive tree and let that tree flourish as You have promised. Let all of Your saints come together in the knowledge of Yah Shua ben Elohim HaMashiach in peace and unity. And let Your Shekinah glory return to all of Your people. I claim this by my baptism of water into HaMashiach and by my baptism of the Ruach HaKodesh. I plead the blood of Yah Shua HaMashiach and in Yah Shua HaMashiach’s name, amen.

Tattoos - The New Blood Sacrifice

"Body art", "skin art", and "tattoo” are all used to label the result of introducing a pigment beneath one’s skin. The Otzal mummy proved that tattooing is at least 5,300 years old. Furthermore, evidence of tattooing has been found in every culture on the Earth. And while there are many reasons to be tattooed (decoration and identification for example), the ancients seemed most often to do so to forge a connection with the spirit world.

In ancient Egypt, tattoos were almost always connected with the spirits. Priests, priestesses, and devotees were the most frequent wearers of tattoos. Depictions of their gods and goddesses, and the symbols related to worship, graced their bodies. Those whose skin was too dark to sport a tattoo made scarifications (though not really tattooing, it is related to tattooing by making scar tissue in the same patterns). Thus Leviticus reads: ‘ye shall not make any cuttings on your flesh for the dead nor print any marks upon you’. (19:28) - Yahu’ah didn’t want His chosen people to bear any connections with other spirits.

On the other side of the world, the Maori also recognized the spiritual significance of tattoos. They, and all of the other Polynesian peoples, believed that one’s spirit(s) was displayed through the tattoo(s) on one’s body. They too saw the connection between tattoos and other spirits - those that could more easily enter and exit one’s body.

Since today most people get tattoos merely to decorate their body, they tend to ignore the spiritual aspect of the tattoos they get! As Rae Schwarz points out, “The modern body art renaissance has been the saving grace for many tribal tattoo styles, now being worn by people with no attachment to the symbolic histories of many of these patterns. Nonetheless, this fascination with mixed cultural tattoo styles has saved certain styles of skin art from extinction.” All too often these styles are nothing more than “welcome” signs for tribal spirits! People tend to ignore the fact that many of these styles comes with “baggage” that profoundly affects their lives!

In some cases, trouble seems to follow an individual or that individual’s friends or family after a new tattoo is completed. In some extreme cases, fatalities result! Don’t believe its coincidence - coincidences rarely happen!

Even modern styles carry a risk. Styles inspired by evil themes welcome spirits that one may wish would simply go away - but they refuse to and won‘t go until the sign is removed (exorcisms are merely temporary because the “welcome” sign is still there!)! Getting a tattoo is still recognized by most people as a “rite of passage“, but most people in this materialistic society have forgotten the significance of such a rite. The pain inflicted and the blood lost in the process is truly a sacrifice being made.

Research with due diligence the design you wish to permanently implant in your body. Make sure that the one you choose (or create for yourself) doesn’t carry any unwelcome “baggage”. Beware of graven images! If you are truly drawn to a design it should be a pleasure to find all about its history and meaning and of the symbols it incorporates. Remember that humanity didn’t create the meanings of these styles and symbols - humanity discovered them!

Tattoos can be a portal giving instant access to a particular spirit or group of spirits. Names and incantations need not be spoken to conjure a spirit when that spirit’s name(s), symbol(s), and a call to visit are already permanently implanted on one’s body! Sorcerers , witches, and even some evangelists use tattoos to maintain continual communication with daemons and other spirits. Yes, even some so-called “Christians" and "Jews” use tattoos for satanic purposes!

Tattoos can be removed. Such removal is also a painful process. But that is not a bad thing because the sacrifice is an atonement and removes that which is unwanted!

Kabbalah is Witchcraft!

Kabbalah = Witchcraft!

Kabbalah (Hebrew: קַבָּלָה) is the mystical aspect of Judaism. It refers to a set of cryptic teachings meant to define the inner meaning of both the Old Testament Bible and the Talmud, and to explain the significance of Jewish religious practices. Kabbalah literally means "receiving", and is sometimes transliterated as “Cabala“, “Kabbala“, “Kabala“, “Kabalah“, “Qabalah“, or other renderings. It is called “receiving” because the studying of the works without a teacher is considered useless. It is important to note that in all religious Jewish mysticism the catchphrase "those who know don't tell, and those who tell don't know" is one of its foundations.

The Zohar is generally considered the foremost Kabbalistic text. According to the Zohar, Torah (Moses’ books of the Bible) study is divided into four levels:

  • Peshat, the simple meaning of the text;

  • Remez, literally "hint[s]" - biblical allusion and allegory;

  • Derash, i.e. midrash, Rabbinic scriptural exegesis; and

  • Sod, which is the kabbalah, the secret inner meaning of the Torah. Kabbalah is considered, by its followers, as a necessary part of the study of the Torah - the study of Torah being an inherent duty of all Jews. Though many, if not most, elements of kabbalah were created by King Solomon, this final level of Torah study was created by Rabbi Akiba ben Joseph. Under him, the casual title of “Rabbi” (“master/teacher”) was to become an office whose holders could sentence people to death. Indeed, not only were the priests and prophets to be replaced by the Rabbis, but the supremacy of the Torah as well. Akiba would make the requirement that a true Rabbi must be able to reverse the meaning of a scripture and use it to justify any action. He invented the lie of a secret “oral Torah“(supposedly handed down from Moses) to supplement the written one. Kabbalah teaches doctrines that are accepted by some Jews as the true meaning of Judaism while most other Jews have rejected these doctrines as heretical to Judaism.

The origins of the term “kabbalah” are unknown and believed to belong to either Solomon ibn Gabirol (1021 - 1058) or to the 13th century A. D. Spanish kabbalist Bahya ben Asher. While other terms have been used in many religious documents from the 2nd century A. D. up to the present day, the term “kabbalah” has become the main indicative of Jewish esoteric knowledge and practices. Main kabbalistic literature which served as the basis for most of the development of kabbalistic thought divides between early works such as Bahir and Heichalot (1st Century A. D. ?) and later works dated to the 13th century A. D., of which the main book is the Zohar representing the main source for the meditative kabbalah ("Kabbalah Iyunit").

To fully understand kabbalah and to be able to practice kabbalistic magic the first requirement is to recognize the astral framework within which the kabbalist operates. The basic tenet of kabbalah is that there is but one God. There is no pantheon of gods and goddesses - there is just one God. Any apparent evidence to the contrary is because we are not able to clearly see the intrinsic harmony exhibited in all of creation (Gaea, goddess of the Earth, has no real existence. She is only a manifestation of the nurturing aspects of the One God).

God existed before the physical universe was created. He had no need to create the universe. Creation was an act of giving on the part of God. Within the created universe humanity has a special place and a special purpose. According to kabbalah mankind is the only species that has free will. The result of humanity's uniqueness is that it has responsibilities that other creatures - both physical and spiritual - do not have.

There are realms that are not ordinarily perceptible to mankind. These are the spiritual realms. These realms are inhabited by beings commonly known as angels, archangels, demons, and other spirits. There is a close, but usually unrecognized relationship, between these spirits and man. To the kabbalist, from a physical standpoint God is unknowable. God is so different from the physical reality that surrounds us that any direct contact would destroy us. But God wants us to experience Him. The reason God created the physical universe and mankind was so that we would have the opportunity to draw closer to Him. God's influence constantly flows in and around us, but for the most part we ignore it. The influence is there - we just have to look for it.

The kabbalist believes that the way God provides His influence is through the sephiroth of the “Tree of Life”. The sephiroth act as attenuators between the reality of God and that of our physical existence. If the sephiroth did not exist then physical universe would not exist - it would be absorbed into God and thus be an intrinsic part of God [though kabbalists say they cannot conceive of God as being composed of "parts" (like the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit?)]. The sephiroth provide us with a tree stretching down from the infinity of God to the finite restriction of the physical universe. If we face away from the illusory attractions of our physical world we will see this Tree, this pathway, stretching away from us into infinity.

According to kabbalah, God created the sephiroth for two reasons:

  • to protect us from the overwhelming power of His glory; and

  • to provide us with a way of returning to Him (the ultimate goal of mankind's existence. Each of the sephiroth have specific functions in this two-fold process. They act in similar ways to the roundabouts, one-way streets and traffic lights used in road traffic control. Each of the sephiroth has a specific name that is also descriptive of its function.

Though the basic traditional structure remains the same, diagrammatical representations of the sephiroth are as varied as the many mystic/occult movements that have adopted it! The highest sephiroth is "nearest" to God. The lowest is "nearest" to the physical and the most "distant" from God. In the spiritual realm they are considering, "nearness" actually equates with similarity and "distance" with dissimilarity. The progression up the Tree, along the path of the sephiroth, is one of becoming more like God. Today, almost every Western mystical/occult belief system incorporates some form of the “Tree of Life”!

God created mankind in His image. We were formed to be similar to God. This similarity extended to us, like God, being invested with free-will. God is omnipotent and thus has ultimate freedom of will and expression. At the lower level of our physical existence we have the freedom to choose whether we attach ourselves to the physical world or realize our spiritual inheritance. The story of Adam and Eve's fall and expulsion from the garden of Eden describes the process by which mankind chose the physical realm. But the path is still there - the sephiroth still exist. We can still choose to pursue the spiritual path by using the tools we have been given. We can also choose to imitate the fallen angels!

Unfortunately, the kabbalists ignore the very laws they claim to study. The Torah forbids the use of sorcery or witchcraft. The use of magic is condemned throughout the Old Testament. Kabbalistic practices have been adopted by Western magick because they work. Spirits are summoned and dismissed using the holy names of God! Ancient practices of marginal value are now replaced with those of kabbalah.

Magic angers God because it uses the immutable laws He established to do Satan’s will. We use it to glorify ourselves when we use it for good. We use it to empower ourselves when we use it for evil. God is left out of the equation! Being righteous and just, God refuses to break His own laws. He must feel like the honest District Attorney who must watch the guilty go free because of a loophole they discovered in the law. But judgment day comes for every soul. Having left the physical realm, we must all answer for our transgressions during this life. If we have violated God’s law by intruding upon the spiritual realm in matters beyond our maturity, we shall be punished like the adolescent child who willfully broke open the gun cabinet and used a gun to rob a convenience store - only a lot more severely!

Very few kabbalists deny that kabbalah is magical in nature. It is here that this author warns all who use it to beware. Its enormous power is indeed a great temptation to all those intelligent enough to comprehend it and fortunate enough to have an able teacher. But it is only one more of the many temptations that are set before us in our life-times to test us. Compared to basking in the shekinah glory of God we experience because of the blood spilled by Yah Shua HaMashiach (Jesus Christ) through the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit); and the power that shall be granted to those of us who successfully resist this life’s temptations, kabbalah is indeed child’s-play. It is far wiser to resist kabbalah’s temptation now than to suffer the consequences later.

Kabbalah the Forbidden Mystic Occultism Magic

It is an abomination to King Sovereign Yah Veh Sabaoth (the Lord of Hosts) that Cabala (Kabbalah) occultism teachings have spread into current revival meetings, false prophets in the Church, and have been taught in many Messianic congregations, to lead God’s people in to the unholy sin of occultism. Yah Veh Sabaoth is calling for complete repentance from this gross sin. Many people have followed their leaders, and have not taken the time to go to the root of the teaching of the Oral law (Cabala). God is purifying His children in His holiness, and all those both Jew and Gentile who have been exposed to the Kabbalah teachings and practices, must repent now! Kabbalah has provoked YHVH to anger. When His children have not listened to the prophets rebuke then He sends war, famine, drought, and pestilence! The use of YHVH’S holy names has been used to summon up fallen angels (demons), to do the bidding for those who practice Cabala! This is an abomination to YHVH. His name is to be reverenced to the highest degree, not to command fallen angels, to do their selfish bidding. The unholy use of God’s names is found in witchcraft spells, and Jewish circles, one example being the seal of Solomon. Gustav Davidson wrote a book named A Dictionary of Angels which includes the fallen angels. He goes into the Cabala resources which teach the orders of the celestial hierarchy (archangels, ruling princes, throne angels, angel wardens, governing angels, spirits messengers, intelligences, governors, amulet angels, fallen angels, seals of angels, the magic circle, ect.) Gustav’s research lead him to find angels in “The Enoch books led me on to related hierological sources and texts: apocalyptic, cabalistic, Talmudic, Gnostic, patristic, Merkabah (Jewish mystic), and ultimately to the grimoires, those black magic manuals, repositories of curious, forbidden, and by now well-nigh forgotten lore. In them, invocations, adjurations, and exorcisms were spelt out in full, often grossest detail, and addressed to spirits bearing the most outlandish names.”1 1. Quote by Gustav Davidson in his book “A Dictionary of Angels”, Introduction [xi] Gustav also states “St. Paul found angels wicked (as in Ephesians 6, ect.). In Colossians 2:17 he warns us not to be seduced by any religion of angels. There is further injunction in Hebrews 13. “Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines and strange doctrines.” 2. We must all question whose strange doctrines did Paul warn us about? STRANGE DOCTRINES OF KABBALAH EXPOSED Where did this start with the Jewish people? Historically the Kabbalah taught the Oral law. This was said to be handed down by Abraham, to Isaac, who then taught it to Jacob. Jacob transmitted it to his sons, Levi, who became chief guardian of the Oral tradition. Levi passed it on to his son, Kehat, who passed it on to his son Amram, Amran was the father of whom they considered the Lord of all the prophets, Moses. They believe that the “soul” of the Torah was revealed at Sinai. Which was said to be the prophetic vision of the inner workings of the universe. The power of the inner working of the universe, in prayer was given to those who attained it. The peak of Jewish life in Israel, contained prophecy which was integrally used in the temple in Jerusalem, which was said to be a national occupation: their Talmud states that millions of people practiced prophecy in biblical times (Megillah 14a). But with the moral degeneration that set in, the pursuit of prophecy began to be abused by practitioners of foreign cults and “false prophets”. The voice of YHVH’S true prophets became a voice of reproof, but the practitioners of Abraham’s methods (Oral law) felt they had to conceal their knowledge from the wider public. It was the mystical dimension of the “Oral Torah” which become hidden from the common peoples view, leaving the study and observance of the written form of the Law as the distinguishing hallmark of Judaism, and in the eyes of the gentles alike. 2. Quote by Gustav Davidson in his book “A Dictionary of Angels” Nevertheless the mystical tradition or “Kabbalah” was pursued in a continuous tradition from biblical times onward. Key figures in the transmission of the “Oral Torah” from David, Solomon, Ezra, and the men of the Great Assembly (secret society), to Rabbi Yochanan ben Zakkai, Rabbi Akiva (first false Rabbi after Yah Shua), and many other Talmudic sages, were at the same time supreme masters of mystical occult wisdom. Maaseh Bereishit, dealing with the secrets of creation, and Maaseh Merkavah the “Work of the Chariot”, were the two main branches pursued in the private study chambers of the sages of Israel. However, in the public study halls and synagogues it was the “Revealed Torah” of practical observance and moral improvement that was stressed, while the secrets of the Torah were hinted at allusively in the wordplay and parables of Midrash. The destruction of the Second Temple was in the time of Rabbi Yochanan ben Zakkai, at the height of Roman persecution, permission was given to Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai, who was Rabbi Akiva’s student, he began revealing some of the secrets of Maaseh Bereishit and Maaseh Merkavah in his mystical discourses to his disciples as transcribed in the Zohar and other related writings. Yet even after he exposed some of the secrets, many aspects of the esoteric wisdom were still kept totally secret, and the Zohar was for centuries available only to the restricted inner circles of scholars (false prophets). During the tribulations of exile the secret wisdom of Kabbalah was revealed to even wider circles. Which was the case in the 16th century, in the chaotic aftermath of the expulsion of the Jews from Spain. An influx of sages went to the Holy City of Safed in the Galilee made it the center Kabbalah center, From which Rabbi Isaac Luria, the “ARI” (Lion), began to spread Kabbalah world wide. His teaching were put into writing by his student Rabbi Chaim Vital, in Etz Chaim, the “Tree of Life”. Cabala teaches that Abraham sought the power source behind the manifiest plurality of the world which would lead him to the underlying coordinaties and the elements of creation, brought into being through the “Word of God” as expressed in the letters of the Hebrew Aleph Beit, and their combinations. The purpose of letter-manipulations was to connect with the Creator and harness the power of the letters so as to channel beneficial influences to the world. In addition to the many Names of YHVH of Israel revealed in the Torah, Nevi’im, and Ketuviv (i.e. the Tanach), the Jewish mystical tradition coined some other names for YHVH, primarily for the use in the study of Kabbalistic meditation. Many of the mystical Names were derived from Scriptures using methodologies developed in ancient Babylonia. YHVH’S revealed Names (YHVH, Elohim, El, Eloah, Elah, Yah, Adonai, Hakadosh, Savior, Redeemer, ect.) represent him as the all powerful Master and Ruler of The Universe. The Allmighty YHVH will not be “conjured” nor will He be treated as an “object” to invoke his Holy Names for selfish and manipulative gains and purposes. The Jewish mystical tradition has two primary groups that were interested in esoteric meaning of the Hebrew Name of YHVH. Theoretical Kabbalists meditated on the Names of YHVH for spiritual insight, to gain esoteric knowledge of YHVH. This is the form of Gnosticism or “theosophy.” Practical Kabbalists attempted to use the Names of YHVH to “magically” affect the supernatural and physical realms. They often inscribed the Names on protective amulets and other artifacts. This is one form of Occultism which YHVH plainly condemns in the Torah. Leviticus 19:31; 20:6; 20:27). Kabbalah in our modern day has been re-birthed worldwide, through the Jewish Renewal Movement, religious cooperation has been established by Rabbi Zalman Schachter. A founder of the international Jewish Renewal Movement, Schachter is among the best – known Jewish intellectuals and writers of the past 75 years. Schachter moved from Philadelphia to Boulder around 1997, he headed the Naropa’s World Wisdom Foundation. Rabbi Shelly Moss quotes in a newspaper article “His presence, says Moss, is just one factor that brings Jews and Buddhists to town and successfully bridges the two spiritualities.” For decades, Buddhists have had a strong presence in Boulder, Colorado – home of the Naropa Institute and about a dozen established Buddhist congregations. Rabbi Moss continues to say “The Buddhist and Jewish groups work together, Moss says, kindling a roaring fire of spirituality.” Most modern day Rabbi’s admire Rabbi Schachter as one of the greatest scholars of our time. He not only was uniting the Jews with the Buddhist’s but is the founder of the Jewish Renewal Movement, as his teaching are on the Tree of Life. Dear saints you must do your research, the Naropa Institute teaches all forms of pagan religions! Look it up for yourself on the internet! The Jewish Renewal Movement has brought in the occult teaching of Kabbalah to the Rabbi’s internationally, and to their congregations. They persist to teach their ancient society occultism, and not crucified, and risen savior Yah Shua, for the atonement for their sins. 3 We are to exalt King Sovereign Yah Veh Sabaoth's Names (YHVH). His true end-time prophets invite every nation to magnify His holy name. “O magnify the Lord greaten King Sovereign Yah Veh Sabaoth with me, and let us exalt His name together.” (Ps. 34:3) This is an eternal holy calling as we will glorify our heavenly Father for all of eternity. We are ministers of the circumcision of truth from of God Elohim, as Jesus is. “Now I say word that Jesus Christ Yah Shua Messiah became a minister of the circumcision of truth of God Elohim, to confirm establish the promises made pre-evangelisms unto the fathers: And that the Gentiles (nations) might glorify King Sovereign Yah Veh Sabaoth for his mercy; exactly as it is written scribed, For this cause I will confess shall avow to thee among the Gentiles, and sing psalm unto thy name.” (Rom. 15:8-9) 3. Newspaper article Dec. 31, 1997 – Jan. 6, 1998; Boulder Planet. “And I saw as it were a sea mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory triumphed over from the beast, and over from his mark tattoo, and over from the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having harps cithers of God Elohim. And they sing the song ode of Moses Moshe the servant of God Elohim, and the song ode of the Lamb, saying wording, “Great Mega and marvelous are thy works Lord God Almighty King Sovereign Yah Veh El Sabaoth, just and true are thy ways, thou King Sovereign of saints the holy. Who shall not fear no way awe thee, O Lord Yah Veh, and glorify thy name? For because thou art holy merciful: for because all nations goyim shall come and worship before thee in thy sight; for because thy judgments are made manifest.” (Rev. 15:2-4) King Sovereign Yah Veh El Sabaoth “which was, and who is, and who is coming”, is greatly to be feared in the private counsel of His holy saints, and to all who hold Him in complete reverence. (Rev. 4:8) Your servants awe and fear You, for Your great and marvelous exploits and we highly esteem You in complete reverence, You are our King of battle war, glory, and salvation. You alone are our Commander and Chief, our Lord of lords, and King of all kings. The material provided here is for educational purposes only, to expose the evil roots of occultism or Kabbalah. This mystical approach to interpreting Scripture often leads the practitioner to serious errors, and dubious interpretations. We are to worship YHVH in purity of heart, and love Him, not “conjure” Him up. Those false prophets and false shepherds who use Him name are under His judgment. “But the prophet, which shall presume to speak word a word in my name, which I have not commanded misvhaed him to speak word, or that shall speak word in the name of other gods (fallen angels, demons) elohim, even that prophet shall die.” (Deu. 18:20) REPENTANCE We must stand in the gap for prayer, and bind the strong man Kabbalah, along with the ancient roots, and modern roots of the Jewish Renewal Movement in the name of Yah Shua of Nazareth! We pray the Lamb of Elohim’s seven horns in Revelations to break the horns (power) of this movement, and ask King Sovereign YHVH to send his armies from heaven and earth to expose the truth. We ask the Son of Humanity to release the sickle for the harvest of repentance for those who practice Kabbalah, and bring forth intercession for repentance to all the bloodlines of the twelve tribes. The false shepherds, teaches, and the people they taught must repent before the great day of the wrath of YHVH Sabaoth. Put In The Harvest Sickle: “Put ye in Spread the sickle, for the harvest is ripe ripened: come, get you down descend ye; for the press is full winepress filleth, the fats troughs overflow; for their wickedness evil is great. Multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the Lord YHVH Sabaoth is near in the valley of decision.” (Joel 3:13-14) Son Of Humanity Releases End-Time Harvest: “And I looked perceived, and behold, a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man humanity, having on his head a golden crown wreath, and in his hand a sharp sickle. And another angel came out of the temple nave, crying with in a loud mega voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust send in thy sickle, and reap harvest: for because the time hour is come for thee to reap harvest; for because the harvest of the earth is ripe dried. And he that sat on the cloud thrust cast in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped harvested.” (Rev. 14:14-16) YHVH Judges Lying False Prophets ~ And False Shepherds Jeremiah Yirme Yah 23:1-40 "Woe be Ho unto the pastors tenders that destroy and scatter the sheep flock of my pasture! saith the LORD AN ORACLE OF YHVH. Therefore thus saith the LORD GOD YHVH ELOHIM of Israel Yisra El against the pastors tenders that feed tend my people; Ye have scattered my flock, and driven them away, and have not visited them: behold, I will shall visit upon you the evil of your doings exploits, saith the LORD AN ORACLE OF YHVH. And I will shall gather the remnant survivors of my flock out of all countries lands whither I have driven them, and will bring shall return them again to their folds habitations of rest; and they shall be fruitful fruit bearing and increase abound. And I will set up shepherds shall raise tenders over them which shall feed tend them: and they shall fear awe no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall they be lacking over sighted, saith the LORD AN ORACLE OF YHVH. Behold, the days come, saith the LORD AN ORACLE OF YHVH, that I will shall raise unto David a righteous BRANCH just SPROUT, and a KING SOVEREIGN shall reign and prosper comprehend, and shall execute work judgment and justice justness in the earth. In his days Judah Yah Hudah shall be saved, and Israel Yisra El shall dwell safely confidently: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS YHVH SIDQENUW. Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD AN ORACLE OF YHVH, that they shall no more say, The LORD YHVH liveth, which brought up ascended the children sons of Israel Yisra El out of the land of Egypt Misrayim; But, The LORD YHVH liveth, which brought up ascended and which led the seed of the house of Israel Yisra El out of the north country land, and from all countries lands whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell settle in their own land soil. Mine heart within me is broken because of the prophets; all my bones shake flutter; I am like a drunken an intoxicated man, and like a man mighty whom wine hath overcome over passed, because at the face of the LORD YHVH, and because at the face of the words of his holiness. For the land is full filled of adulterers; for because at the face of swearing oathing the land mourneth; the pleasant places folds of the wilderness are dried up withered, and their course race is evil, and their force might is not right. For both prophet and priest are profane; yea, in my house have I found their wickedness evil, saith the LORD AN ORACLE OF YHVH. Wherefore their way shall be unto them as slippery ways in the darkness: they shall be driven on overthrown, and fall therein: for I will shall bring evil upon them, even the year of their visitation, saith the LORD AN ORACLE OF YHVH. And I have seen folly frivolity in the prophets of Samaria Shomeron; they prophesied in Baal, and caused my people Israel Yisra El to err stray. I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem Yeru Shalem an horrible thing a horror: they commit adultery adulterize, and walk in lies falsehoods: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers vilifiers, that none no man doth return from his wickedness evil; they are all of them unto me as Sodom Sedom, and the inhabitants settlers thereof as Gomorrah Amorah. Therefore thus saith the LORD OF HOSTS YHVH SABAOTH concerning the prophets; Behold, I will shall feed them with wormwood, and make them drink the water of gall: for from the prophets of Jerusalem Yeru Shalem is profaneness gone forth into all the land. Thus saith the LORD OF HOSTS YHVH SABAOTH, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak word a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the LORD YHVH. They say still saying unto them that despise scorn me, The LORD YHVH hath said worded, Ye shall have peace shalom; and they say unto every one that walketh after the imagination warp of his own heart, No evil shall come upon you. For who hath stood in the private counsel of the LORD YHVH, and hath perceived seen and heard his word? Who hath marked hearkened unto his word, and heard it? Behold, a whirlwind storm of the LORD YHVH is gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind whirling storm: it shall fall grievously whirl upon the head of the wicked. The anger wrath of the LORD YHVH shall not return, until he have executed worked, and till he have performed raised the thoughts intrigue of his heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it perfectly discern with discernment. I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken worded to them, yet they prophesied. But if they had stood in my private counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings exploits. Am I a GOD at hand an ELOHIM nearby, saith the LORD AN ORACLE OF YHVH, and not a GOD an ELOHIM afar off? Can any man hide himself in secret places coverts that I shall not see him? saith the LORD AN ORACLE OF YHVH. Do not I fill heaven the heavens and earth? saith the LORD AN ORACLE OF YHVH. I have heard what the prophets said, that prophesy lies falsehoods in my name, saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed. How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies falsehoods? yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart; Which think fabricate to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams which they tell scribe every man to his neighbour friend, as their fathers have forgotten my name for Baal. The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell scribe a dream; and he that hath my word, let him speak word my word faithfully in truth. What is the chaff straw to the wheat grain? saith the LORD AN ORACLE OF YHVH. Is not my word like thus as a fire? saith the LORD AN ORACLE OF YHVH; and like a hammer that breaketh shattereth the rock in pieces? Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD AN ORACLE OF YHVH, that steal my words every one man from his neighbour friend. Behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD AN ORACLE OF YHVH, that use take their tongues, and say, He saith. An oracle! Behold, I am against them that prophesy false dreams, saith the LORD AN ORACLE OF YHVH, and do tell scribe them, and cause my people to err stray by their lies falsehoods, and by their lightness frothiness; yet I sent them not, nor commanded misvahed them: therefore in benefitting, they shall not profit benefit this people at all, saith the LORD AN ORACLE OF YHVH. And when this people, or the prophet, or a priest, shall ask thee, saying, What is the burden of the LORD YHVH? thou shalt then say unto them, What burden? I will shall even forsake abandon you, saith the LORD AN ORACLE OF YHVH. And as for the prophet, and the priest, and the people, that shall say, The burden of the LORD YHVH, I will shall even punish visit upon that man and his house. Thus shall ye say every one man to his neighbour friend, and every one man to his brother, What hath the LORD YHVH answered? and, What hath the LORD spoken YHVH worded? And the burden of the LORD YHVH shall ye mention remember no more: for every man's word shall be his burden; for ye have perverted the words of the living GOD ELOHIM, of the LORD OF HOSTS YHVH SABAOTH our GOD ELOHIM. Thus shalt thou say to the prophet, What hath the LORD YHVH answered thee? and, What hath the LORD spoken YHVH worded? But since ye say, The burden of the LORD YHVH; therefore thus saith the LORD YHVH; Because ye say this word, The burden of the LORD YHVH, and I have sent unto you, saying, Ye shall not say, The burden of the LORD YHVH; Therefore, behold, I, even I, will utterly in forgetting, shall forget you, and I will forsake shall abandon you, and the city that I gave you and your fathers, and cast you out of my presence from my face: And I will bring shall give an everlasting eternal reproach upon you, and a perpetual an eternal shame, which shall not be forgotten."
