Cabala, Qaballah, Kabbalah
Cabala Is Dangerous – PERIOD
Part of the great falling away from THE Faith, the great apostasy and strong delusion of the last days, is a pursuit of Mysticism and Metaphysics, and many counterfeit forms of spirituality. Sadly, the masses do not know that ANY spirituality other than Holy Ghost spirituality, spirituality of the Holy Spirit of Truth, the Spirit of Messiah, the Ruach Ha Kodesh, are deceiving counterfeit spirits of Lucifer.
Here is a picture provided by Cabalists of their TREE of life. Do you see the Serpent in that tree? Yes Lucifer, the Serpent, the father of lies, is all through that Cabala tree.
That illustration may be the best illustration of the Cabala tree of life. You see the Serpent all through it. It was the Serpent, Lucifer, the father of lies, who is woven all through that Kabala tree. The Serpent, Lucifer, was the Wisest of all of God’s creatures. His first words to the humans that Lucifer so hates were – Yea, hath God said? What amazing FAITH destroying subtlety leading to destruction. You may be certain that Serpent, Lucifer, is all through that deadly tree of Cabala. We may be just as certain, from the word of God, that if that father of lies says it is a tree of life, you should know it will mean spiritual death to the adherents of Cabala.
The 1991 Barbury Castle crop formation pictured above is some good evidence of the occult nature of the Kabalaa. The Tree of Life, of course, is mentioned many times in the Bible, from the beginning of the Book of Genesis to last part of the Book of Revelation. One who eats from this Tree, according to the Bible, is given "eternal life." The above diagram of the Tree of Life occult perversion is part of an ancient tradition called "Kabala." Other spellings of the word include, kabbala, cabala, cabbala, quabala, and qabbalah. This is generally known as a special Hebrew tradition, the OCCULT philosophy of certain Jewish rabbis, especially in the Middle Ages, based on a mystical interpretation of the Scriptures. Many scholars believe that the tradition is much older; that it traces back to the ancient Egyptians and Sumerians.
That is the purpose of this article to help avoid the Cabala deadly snare of the devil, and give the knowledge of the Cabala without the huge risk of studying it. This information should be more than sufficient to help to set someone free from such a deadly snare of the devil, without the great spiritual danger involved in simply studying it. Let us hope and pray that anyone who has any involvement with Cabala may find HaShem’s grace to repent of that particularly deadly Hebrew spin Luciferian occultism, known as Cabala.
While this article will deal with the occult spirituality of the Cabala, it is hoped that one will see how this relates to many other last days counterfeit forms of Luciferian spirituality. Some knowledge about the Kabala or Cabala is helpful to avoid this particularly dangerous and seductive snare of the devil. This article should give any real Jew or real Christian more than enough information to help someone be set free from this deadly snare of the devil, without the risk of studying the Cabala itself. Studying the Cabala can certainly expose people, and unwittingly give demonic ground and demonic license.
IF the spirituality sought is NOT of and by the Holy Spirit of TRUTH, given only by the One whose name is called the Word of God, that spirituality may invariably be reduced to a forbidden form of spirituality, empowered by Jannes and Jambores. The Cabala comes under that occult spirituality of Jannes and Jambores, and like many other forms of counterfeit spirituality, does have some real spiritual power that is NOT of God. The Cabala is a Hebrew form of many STRONG DELUSIONS of Lucifer designed to destroy the souls of men. The Cabala provides tremendous demonic license to quickly build demonic strongholds within its adherents to sear the conscience, leading to destruction. Those with even light involvement in the Cabala are in need of deliverance ministry.
2 Tim 3:1-8 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.
Over the last 10 years, in the planting and nurturing of Messianic Congregations, I have had a number of lovely people try to tell me there was a good Cabala that is different from the bad Cabala. I have gone through the materials they reference. Some of it is masterful Luciferian subtlety. The GJiGT has searched this subject for many years. The supposed differences are like the supposed differences between white magic and black magic, both arms come back to Mr. Lucifer, Satan, the devil. All forms of Cabala are an abomination, and expressly forbidden by the word of God. Cabala is all OCCULT. Torah therefore explicitly, and expressly forbids ALL Cabala.
The analogy of white magic and black magic holds true relating to the Cabala. If anyone would assume otherwise, please show what would cause one to believe that there is any real or truthful distinction of a good Cabala from bad Cabala. The Cabala is of the deceiving counterfeit demonic religious spirits of Lucifer. Such occult things as Cabala are anti-Torah, and NOT of God, expressly forbidden, and will bring the curses of God against witches and witchcraft, upon those who practice and promote Cabala. The Cabala is very dangerous, and is all part of the Luciferian occult design to destroy the souls of men.
The I AM, gave Moses to write in Deuteronomy chapters 4 and 5 how such things are expressly forbidden. Moses clearly wrote that HaShem, God Almighty, the I AM, declared unto you His covenant, which He commanded you to perform, even ten commandments; and He wrote them upon two tables of stone. And the LORD commanded me at that time to teach you statutes and judgments, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go over to possess it. Lest ye corrupt yourselves, And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the LORD thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven. I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage. Thou shalt have none other gods before me. Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me,
The Cabala, or Kabala, are the esoteric doctrines of some branches of modern Judaism. Those most likely to embrace the Cabala are those with a zeal for God, but NOT according to knowledge of the Word of God by the Ruach Ha Kodesh. Certainly the religious counterfeit spirit would have Cabala adherents believe it is the Ruach Ha Kodesh, or the Holy Spirit leading. Because of the rejection of Yeshua, particularly the Orthodox Jews, who have a zeal for God, are drawn to fill their spiritual void, and are the most likely to be drawn and ensnared in the Cabala. Since they have rejected the ONLY Way to seek after the Ruach Ha Kodesh, many Orthodox Jews are drawn to this occult form of spirituality.
Adonai, Yeshua THE Messiah, cursed the fig tree, representing any form of religion rejecting the Messiah, rejecting the capital “P” Prophet of Deuteronomy 18. Therefore there is no way, other than to be born again as was Jacob, to become the true Israel, the planting of the Lord. The circumcision of the heart through the blood of the New Testament IN Messiah is the ONLY way. Otherwise, there is no way to bear fruit as the planting and inheritance of Adonai. There is no true spirituality in Judaism outside of Messiah today. The Cabala substitutes, metaphysical, mysterious, cryptic, secret, exclusive, and the blatant occult, in a vain attempt to fill the spiritual void, which only the Holy Ghost can fill. We do also know that the Holy Ghost is ONLY available today through repentance and THE faith of Messiah.
Heb 1:1-2 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
The continued blindness regarding the Aleph Tav, which the Jews call “et” in Gen 1:1, is the BIG PROBLEM for Jews and Gentiles outside of THE Faith of the Living Torah. The Aleph Tav IS whom we must know, who IS the Alpha & Omega, God the Son, the I AM, the Creator and Redeemer. Otherwise, no one can truly hear from God in these last days. This may give insight regarding why so many heretics would attack Paul’s epistle to the Hebrews. Hebrews is the only book in the bible addressed specifically to Messianic Jews, who need special encouragement from wavering, to resist the cultural pull back into the dead works of Judaism.
Although the Cabala claims to be a product of sages from the time of the Babylonian captivity, the truth is, that it is purely the product of the Middle Ages. There simply are no records of the Cabala before the beginning of the second millennium after the destruction of the second temple. The truth regarding Judaism today, is that unless the Jew can recognize his Messiah, breaking with the rationalism of Rambam, the only spirituality left is occult spirituality. Torah and the prophets expressly forbid such occult spirituality of the Cabala. Another sad reality today, is that Jews and Judaism outside of faithful Messianic Judaism, have embraced Moses (Rambam) Maimonides, rather than the Moses who was given the Torah by the Aleph Tav, the I AM.
The Cabala originated when a crude, offensive, improper, humanoid, or manlike, concept of God was wide spread among Jews and Judaism. Then came Rambam, today’s actual Moses of Judaism. Judaism today does not follow the Moses of Torah, but Moses (Rambam) Maimonides. The Rambam Moses brought in rationalism, which makes up all of what may be called Judaism today. The only exception of course, is that of the TRUE Orthodox Judaism, which today, MUST be Torah faithful and observant Messianic Judaism, knowing Yeshua Ha Meshiach. That is the only way, outside of embracing Biblical, Torah observant Christianity, that any Jew may find godly, TRUE, Torah spirituality, by the Ruach Ha Kodesh.
One really should have compassion, pity, and mercy for any Jew who does not know his Messiah, Yeshua. ALL believers should understand that the Jew still has the God ordained veil whenever the true Moses of Torah is preached. 2 Cor 3:14-16 But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same veil untaken away in the reading of the Old Testament; which veil is done away in Christ. But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the veil is upon their heart. Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the veil shall be taken away.
In Judaism today there remains a spiritual void which can NOT be filled, in a right, or godly, or Torah way, other than through and IN Messiah. All the poor Jew, outside of Messiah can have, is either Rambam’s rationalism, or the Cabala occultism. Of course Rambam’s rationalism is still the best of the choices, for the spirituality of the Cabala will place one as a cursed ENEMY of God, and every real Jew or real Christian.
In Maimonides, rationalism had reached its climax. In effect Rambam changed the Echad of the Shema, which Moses who was given the Torah had written, to Yachid. Echad says Torah, and Yachid says Rambam. The Christian church should never forget, how that rather than blessing the Jews, as God had commanded, Christians have historically persecuted the Jews mercilessly. The Roman Vatican led the longest and most bloody persecution of Jews.
The totality and solidness with which Rambam made his change stick, in large measure, was because of Christian persecution of the Jews. Yes indeed, Christian disobedience to the Double Imperative Command of God found in Isa 40:1-2 bears great responsibility in solidifying Rambam rationalism, and the continued form of godliness which denies the power thereof, in Judaism today. One of the main purposes of the church of the Lord Jesus Christ was that it would lay down its life if necessary, in showing mercy to Israel, to get natural Israel to repent of her national sin of rejecting Yeshua Ha Mashiach, the capital “P” prophet of Deuteronomy 18. The whole book of Ruth is an illustration of how the gentile church, if it is to be the bride of the kinsman redeemer, would lay down its life in showing Mercy to Israel.
As a result of the rationalism of Rambam, the Moses Jews follow today, rather than the Moses of Torah, the study of the Talmud became purely legalistic. Jewish worship degenerated into formalism. It was against this lifeless faith with its dead works, that came the reaction of Cabala. The Cabala was seeking to nourish the soul’s zeal for God. Sadly, it was NOT of the Ruach Ha Kodesh, but rather demonic religious deceiving spirits of the occult, that is behind Cabala. The Cabala would use esoteric or occult interpretations of the Scriptures. The Cabala might have dramatic presentations, but led to darkness, hopeless confusion, and dark superstition, through its juggling with the names of God. The Cabala originated in what is now Poland. It moved to Spain, the real home of the Cabala. With the expulsion of the Spanish Jews in the Inquisition of 1492, it moved to what is now Israel, and spread from there throughout Europe.
The fundamental doctrines of Cabala, rather than being derived from Torah, come from Hellenistic Judaism, Neo-paganism, and Gnosticism. According to the Cabala, God is the eternal and boundless principle of all, and is therefore called The Infinite. The attributes given him are general rather than specific, or Torah based. He is absolutely perfect, free of any defect. He is unity and immutable, boundless, and nothing exists beside him. Since he can not be known by wisdom or understanding, no definition can be given of him, and no concept can be formed regarding him, and no question asked concerning him. To all he is the concealed of all concealed, the hidden of all hidden, the ancient of the ancient, the first of all first and the primal principle.
Why Jews fail to see PANTHISM here is a mystery to me, especially with the Caballa’s 10 Sefiroth? Cabalism really fits Lucifer much more that the God of Israel. The main doctrine of the Cabala is the reconciliation of the imperfect and changing world with the perfect and unchanging God. This forms a never-ending problem for the Cabalists. Attempting to explain it they assumed the existence of a series of independent and spiritual primeval potentialities, which were intelligible substances coming from God. Like the prophet Daniel predicted the worship of a god of forces, which their fathers knew not. How could such spell anything other than PANTHISM, or Lucifer?
The Cabala calls their 10 emanations of God the Sefiroth. The Jews are drawn to Cabala because Judaism, Neo-paganism, Gnosticism, and the occult is so interwoven with the way the Cabala uses so many Old Testament scriptures. The Cabala also uses the Midrashic, meaning RESPECT for any and all views, method of presentation. These are two of the main reasons why Judaism has approved the whole occult mess of Cabala in general, and Orthodox Judaism, in particular. It is amazing how appealing this is to those who have a zeal for God but not according to KNOWLEDGE of the Word of God by the Holy Spirit. Many Christians often are drawn to the Messianic movement and from there drawn to the Cabala and its feel good destructive occult spirituality.
In these last days of the 42 month antichrist war on the saints we know the effect of every vision is now at hand. Particularly destructive is the re-emergence of mysticism both outside and inside the Church. Many people today do not want the way of REPENTANCE and FAITH in and of the Lord Jesus Christ. We are witnessing a rapidly changing religious climate. Masses of people are looking for a mystical experience. In fact this is the CORE of the antichrist, anti-Torah, anti-Biblical global religion of Tolerance of the last days. The only thing not to be tolerated, are the “not authentically human” real Jews and real Christians, "people of the book" as Lucifer's Koran of Islam calls us. The popular trend to lead all but a few souls to destruction is to take what one wants from the different religions and use it in one's own spiritual belief system. We see this not only in Jews going into the Cabala. but today also inside many churches where meditation, Yoga, visualization, worship of self and eastern and occult religious practices are "Christianized" for use in the church.
Kabala is Jewish Mysticism, an esoteric theosophy, its origin is found in The "Sefer Yetzirah," or Book of Creation, which explains that God created the world by the means of thirty-two secret paths of knowledge which are the ten "sephirots" and the twenty-two letters in the Hebrew alphabet. These ten emanations form what is called the Tree of Life. The Tree also describes the path by which the divine spirit descended into the material world, and gives the path which mankind can ascend to God.
The origin and dating of the book is unknown, though the Kabala, we are told dates back to antiquity. The earliest popular use that can be found is in the tenth century. Today we even see Kabala being made popular by those in Hollywood like Madonna, who want to be spiritual on their own terms. That is Cabala, forming ones own spirituality apart from the Ruach Ha Kodesh. In spite of all its Hebrew, and use of old testament scripture, it is anti-Torah and expressly forbidden by the teaching of Moses, the prophets, the apostles, and the Messiah.
The most prominent book of the Cabala is the Zohar. It became popular even among those claiming to be Christians in the Middle-ages. A Rabbi, Shimon Bar Yochai, supposedly wrote it. Cabala was passed on as secret doctrine to only a chosen few. The accounts of Abraham, Hagar, Esau are more than history to Cabalists. Cabalists believe the letters, words, and names have hidden divine mysteries.
Cabalists do not pursue a literal interpretation of the Bible, which they consider inferior and/or not spiritual. The Scripture is often dramatized with pictorial or Hebrew letters to make characters and events stand for abstract ideas. Cabala will often use these devices, principles, or forces, so that the literal sense would only suggest a parallel, deeper symbolic sense. The Hebrew letters are frequently considered hidden angelic power sources. Like astrology, in Cabala, the stars and planets affect everything on earth through the angelic personalities that rule them, according to the Book of Zohar. In the Kabala God is in everything and everything is in God. The big mystery in this is why any real Jew or real Christian does not recognize this as pantheism. Such things can NOT be considered either Jewish or Christian, but the forbidden OCCULT which is hated by the One True God of Israel.
Contrary to Torah, the Cabala says Creation was NOT made out of nothing other than the power of the Word of God. The Cabala says Creation was fashioned from the four elements of water, fire, earth and ether. This concept is also found in some ancient nature religions, but not in Judaism. The Cabala teaches that the soul is pre-existent, before conception, again contrary to the clear teaching of scriptures. The Cabala teaches that one may recollect their previous existence, more like reincarnation of the Hindus than anything Torah based, Jewish or Christian. The Cabala teaches that the pure soul becomes present among the emanations who control the world. The Cabala would teach that an impure soul must be reborn in another body, and the process continues until it has been made pure. This is classic Hindu belief expressly opposed by everything biblical. It really is astonishing that Judaism or Christianity could possibly allow such teachings to be anything other than strongly condemned.
The Cabala seems to have an original model, or prototype for which all other similar things are patterned in the whole world of creation. IT IS CONFUSION BIG TIME. Christians and Jews should know that God is NOT the author of confusion, Lucifer is king of confusion. Like Gnosticism and all of occultism, there is a deeper hidden meaning made known only to those who learn to discover it. The classic Luciferian appeal to pride and vanity to be one of the initiated, should be obvious.
Albert Pike, who was the pre-eminent occult philosopher of Freemasonry, said that Gnosticism was an offshoot of Kabalism, as one may see on page 626 of Pike’s Morals and Dogma. There Pike says the Cabala is the key of the occult sciences; and the Gnostics were born of the Kabalists. We should point out that Nostradamus was also a Kabalist. Nostradamus was a follower of Satan's Babylonian Talmudic Qabalah Magick. A seer, but no Prophet. A sorcerer, but no prophet. A communicator of the dead but no prophet. A mediator of demons, but no prophet.
One thing we should understand is that the Zohar is Cabala, and BOTH are OCCULT. The Cabala is obviously PANTHEISTIC in is doctrines more closely aligned with Hinduism than either biblical Christianity or Torah Judaism. The Cabala is an eastern religious viewpoint, and definitely NOT Biblical. Mysticism always leads one into opposing the biblical teaching of the word of God by the Holy Spirit of TRUTH, because Lucifer is the father of all false religions, and father of lies.
It is hoped that the Christian can see some of these same things being brought into the Purpose Driven Church movement of Rick Warren, Robert Schuler, and Bill Hybel and others. The mega church entertainment and self-esteem movement will drift further and further from Sound doctrine as an obvious sign of the times. In fact, the mega church or Purpose Driven church movement is some of the strongest evidence that the time of 2 Tim 4:3 has arrived in FULLNESS. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
The increasing popularity of the Cabala in Judaism is similar to what we see in this self-esteem mega church entertainment business. The mysticism of the Cabala plays upon vanity and the absence of TRUE spirituality much the same as the mega church movement. The Cabala simply is much more open about its mystical Luciferian roots than the Purpose Driven mega church movement.
It should really not be surprising to those aware of the signs of the times that Judaism and many Christian churches and especially Messianic congregations will be looking to the occult and ancient mystics and Cabala for their spiritual practices. Many popular new leaders are teaching and introducing concepts strictly forbidden by the Scripture as if now God approves of them. The promotion is done through books, church conferences, ecumenical gatherings, interfaith gatherings and the Internet.
Laurie Beth Jones is a corporate leadership coach who is on the Board of Directors of Ken Blanchard's Lead Like Jesus ministry, along with Rick Warren, Bill Hybels and New Age proponent Mark Victor Hansen. Lead like Jesus conferences are also advertised on Rick Warren's website. Jones travels the world speaking to business leaders how to be more effective using "spiritual" concepts. She speaks also with other popular New Age gurus. On one site she is a listed as a featured presenter at the Eighth International Conference on Business and Consciousness, which also advertises and promotes altered states of consciousness conference, sacred sexuality conference, and shamanism conference.
Laurie Beth Jones' work centers around the four elements of Earth, Wind, Water and Fire - the fundamental elements of our existence according to Jones. Each element Jones says, represents a personality type that is easy to understand in yourself as well as easy to identify in others. Psychological profiling of the congregations is an obvious and disturbing part of the mega church or Purpose Driven church movement of Rick Warren. Jones and Warren are teaching the same sort of psychological profiling and recently it has also be reported that the psychological profiles are being shared with government agency data bases.
Jones says the elements you find in the personality profile are universal. Every culture understands and respects the elements. Native Americans used pray to the elements, Hindus incorporate the elements into their healing rituals and the Chinese words "feng shui" actually mean "wind and water." The Kabbala states that the four letters which stood for Yahweh (YWEH) are actually a tetragrammaton meaning Earth, Water, Wind and Fire. Jones also says that in the Bible, there are more than 215 references to the elements, beginning in the book of Genesis.
THIS GARBAGE OF JONES IS ALL FALSE. SADLY PEOPLE TODAY ARE SO UNINFORMED WITH WHAT THE KJV HOLY BIBLE SAYS, THAT THESE NEW AGE GURUS ARE NOT ONLY STOPPED IN THE OCCASION THEY SEEK AMONG CHRISTIANS AND JEWS, BUT ARE INVITED IN TO PROMOTE THEIR CONFUSION AND OTHER ANTICHRIST ANTI-TORAH GOSPELS OF LUCIFER.
All of this New Age occultism and its connections with the Kabala, Church Growth Movement, and the Occult may be verified on Laura Beth Jones’ website.
Rom 1:22-25 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
Yes, the tetragrammaton is God's name, and NO, we are not to pray to the earth, wind, fire, and water. We do not pray to or worship the creation, as Jones and other new agers would teach. These things are clearly AGAINST the Scriptures. The Tetragrammaton is YHVH, not YWEH. In Exodus 3 when Moses asked God at the burning bush who shall I say sent me, we do know He said tell them I AM that I AM, not tell them earth, wind, water and fire hath sent thee. Jones as many other popular new agers use the mysticism of the Cabala. Wicca and earth based religions of the occult teach this sort of things and NOT the Bible. In Exodus chapter 3, YHVH, God expresses to mankind through Moses, God’s eternal nature, I AM that I AM, means the self-existing one, the eternal One in Hebrew, the Creator, the Aleph Tav, the Alpha & Omega. Yeshua Ha Meshiach the SAME yesterday, today, and for ever. Jesus Christ IS come in the flesh. Alleluia Yeshua.
If we are worshipping God's creation, even in Rick Warren or Robert Schuler’s religions of self-esteem, then we are NOT worshiping Yahweh.
In the time of Yeshua Ha Meshiach’s ministry, as Messiah Ben Joseph, the Lamb of God prophecied by Abraham, the Jews in that time clearly understood what He meant. They tried to stone Him for blasphemy as seven times, we find Him in John’s gospel, where He explicitly and unequivocally declared He is the I AM.
John 8:58-59 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I AM. Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.
John 8:24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I AM he, ye shall die in your sins.
These are not the statements of what Yeshua became, these are statements of Who He IS. He is the I AM who spoke to Moses from the burning bush and on Mt. Sinai and wrote with His finger the 10 commandments of God’s royal law of love, life, and liberty.
Here are the seven places where Yeshua publicly proclaims that He is I AM. Note: The added words which should be in italics in your KJV Holy Bible are removed here as in the original Greek text, THE TEXTUS RECEPTUS, in order to make the point more vividly.
John 4:25-26 The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things. Jesus saith unto her, I AM that speak unto thee.
Using the words I AM, Jesus publicly proclaims that he is the Messiah or the Christ.
John 6:19-20 So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing nigh unto the ship: and they were afraid. But he saith unto them, I AM; be not afraid.
After demonstrating that He had the power to walk upon the water, Jesus proclaims that He is I AM.
John 8:24 For if ye believe not that I AM, ye shall die in your sins.
Jesus declares that if you reject the truth that He is I AM, You will die in your sins. That is a polite way of saying you will be damned to the second death of eternal hell.
John 8:28 Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I AM, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.
John 8:57-59 Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham? Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I AM. Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.
Here Jesus CLEARLY proclaims that Abraham knew Him. He then says that He is I AM. The Jews UNDERSTOOD what He said that He is I AM. They thought he was committing blasphemy, and tried to stone Him.
John 13:19 Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I AM.
John 18:4-8 Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye? They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I AM. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them. As soon then as he had said unto them, I AM, they went backward, and fell to the ground. Then asked he them again, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus answered, I have told you that I AM: if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way:
When Jesus made His proclamation that He was I AM, His enemies fell to the ground.
There have been many false Messiahs who would never think of dying for someone else. Jesus proclaims when He has been lifted up on the cross, then we will know that He is I AM. This is because Isaiah prophesied that the Messiah would die for the sins of his people.
Isaiah 53:5-6 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all. (As Abraham PROPHECIED to Isaac, God will provide Himself, a Lamb. Genesis 22:8)

The essence of Kabala is the Occult, Paganism, Pantheisn, Gnosticism, and Mysticism; to discover hidden meanings, to engage oneself into an experience of the divine through various methods, rituals, symbols, allegories and icons.
Brethren, the global antichrist religion would have us be tolerant when things expressly forbidden by God are being taught by so many today. NO, we do not tolerate teaching, leading and saying the wrong things to us and certainly not to our children. Real Jews and real Christians will not sit by quietly while people are brought into this new paradigm that is found in the Cabala or the Purpose Driven church.
One does not need to rediscovered the gospel if one knows the TRUE Gospel, of REPENTANCE and Faith of Yeshua Messiah. The problem is that people do NOT want to repent. People do not want to turn at the reproof of the Holy Spirit as they read the Word of God. If people do not understand the gospel requirement of REPENTANCE and the FAITH requirement of OBSERVING and DOING what God Commands, they seek a different way, and a different spirituality. This means that though they may know about Messiah they do NOT really KNOW the Messiah. This means they do not really KNOW Yeshua, they do not really know Salvation.
1 Cor 15:1-4 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
Theosophist Alice Bailey was a mystic and occultist. She is considered the mother of the modern New Age Movement. Alice Bailey was the chief channeler for Djwhal Khul, the Tibetan Master, who dictated through her nearly 20 books. Alice Bailey rejected the Christ of Scripture to embrace a different Christ because of her acceptance of an occult belief system. It is sad how few seem to see how Rick Warren follows Alice Bailey’s leading and teaching more than the leading and teaching of the KJV Holy Bible. Most people do not realize how significant Bailey was in shaping the new world religion that we see quickly coming into the fullness of the strong delusion today.
Alice Bailey revealed an ingenious plan in book, The Externalisation of the Hierarchy. Cabalist agents would infiltrate the Christian Church to modify its message, transforming it as a instrument for the Universal Religion of the 21st Century. Alice Bailey stated: "there will appear the Church Universal, and its definite outlines will appear towards the close of this century, meaning in the year 2000. Coincidently in the year 2000, the antichrist prince picked up the tab on the UN Millennial Summit and brough thousands of political and religious muckey mucks and their entourages picking up the tab for up to six week’s stay in Manhatten, New York. It is also interesting that part of this summit in September 2000, was to hide the fact that the Vatican pope was given full inquisition authority signed sealed and delivered in June 2000.
Bailey went on to say that this global Luciferian occult Church will be nurtured into activity by the Christ and His disciples when the outpouring of the Christ principle, the TRUE second Coming has been accomplished. Bailey said the Christian church in its many branches can serve as a nucleus through which world illumination may be accomplished. Bailey way quite open in saying that churches such as Robert Schuler’s and Rick Warren’s would be a teaching factor to take the great basic occult doctrines, and shattering the old Biblical forms. There would be a new age spirituality and inner spiritual significance. Bailey predicted such mega churches would have a prime work of teaching, and teach ceaselessly, preserving the outer appearance in order to reach the many who are accustomed to church usages. Bailey said Bible knowledge must be spread in this new age way with mystical interpretations. Bailey also predicted occult real healings would be demonstrated in these Christian exterior occult and self-esteem or self worshiping churches to confirm the occult teachings. All of this may be seen in her 1957 book, The Externalization of the Hierarchy, published by Lucis Publishing which was renamed from its former name of Lucifer’s publishing.
This is exactly what we now see taking place in the mega church, or Purpose Driven church movement. The new age movement has always wanted to integrate the church into its goals. Through various alternate spiritual practices they want to work in concert together to create the golden age. Benjamen Crème the spokesman for the Age of Aquarius' Christ, Lord Metraya states, Workers In the field of religion will formulate the universal platform of the new world religion. It is a work of living synthesis and will emphasize the unity and the fellowship of the spirit.
The anti-Messiah, anti-Torah, anti-Biblical global religion of Lucifer will have all the religions united together as one. We should know the KJV Holy Bible speaks of all these things in such simple, clear, explicit terms. The problem is that most people have been taught they cannot understand the bible by preachers who so wrest the scriptures, sowing doubt, unbelief, and BABYLON CONFUSION. Most people simply do not read and study the KJV Holy Bible. Yet, everyone seems aware that there is some NEW kind of spiritual awakening going on. Sadly it is occult and NOT after Messiah, the Living Torah. Many see this growing mystical consciousness has something to do with the Last Days.
1 Th 5:3-4 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
There is a huge difference in biblical spirituality and mysticism. Torah or Biblical spirituality is walking in the Ruach Ha Kodesh, the Holy Spirit. We are to be led by the Spirit of Truth and Holiness, the Spirit of Messiah and NOT occult demonic Luciferian deceiving sprits.
The Cabala is occult PANTHEISM. For all of its mystical twisting and wresting of the scriptures it is in NO WAY TORAH BASED but is Anti-Torah, occult, antithiesis of The Cabala is not a Torah world-view but pantheism.

It may look Jewish but the Zohar is as AntiTorah as one could get. The Kabala, its Zohar and all of its Mystical elements is as far removed from what HaShem gave Moses and the prophets as one can get. Just because Hebrew is used and pieces of the Law and Prophets are taken from their clear simple meaning and context to be wrested for HaSatan. The serpent, the devil, any Jew or Christian should KNOW the Cabala is Forbidden by Torah and the Prophets. The Zohar is Hebrew Astrology.
The Primary Books of the Cabala are ALL occult Luciferian. There is POSITIVELY a Serpent in the Kabala tree. The Primary Texts of the Kabala are:
Sefer Razil HaMalakh or the Book of Raziel the angel, which is the first and oldest book of Kabbalah. It explains Mazal, or fortune, or destiny associated with the notions of Kabbala astrology.
The Sefer Yetzirach, the Book of Creation. The first commentaries on this small book were written in the 10th century. Its historical origins are unclear. It exists today in a number of editions, up to 2500 words long. Like many Jewish mystical texts, it was written in such a way as to be meaningless to those who read it without an extensive background in the Hebrew scriptures.
The Bahir or "illumination." It is some 12,000 words long and first published in 1176. Many Orthodox Jews believe that the author was Rabbi Nehuniah ben haKana, a Talmudic sage of the first century. Historians, however, believe that the book was likely written not long before it was published.
The Zohar or "splendor" which is the most important work of Jewish mysticism. It is an esoteric mystical commentary on the Torah, written in Aramaic. In the 13th century, a Spanish Jew by the name of Moses de Leon claimed to discover the text of the Zohar, attributing it to the 2nd century Rabbi Shimon bar Yohkai. This book was subsequently published throughout the Jewish world. Though the book was widely accepted, over the subsequent centuries a small number of prominent rabbis published works espousing the view that it was a forgery.
Rabbis who regard the clear teaching of Torah have long contended that the Zohar contained concepts contrary to Judaism. Modern historian Gershom Scholem, who is a very well known scholar and historian of Kabbalah in the twentieth century, confirms many of the arguments of Torah believing rabbis. Gershom contends that de Leon himself was the author of the Zohar. The Zohar contains and elaborates upon much of the material found in Sefer Yetzirah and Bahir, and is considered the Kabbalistic work par excellence.
According to the Sefer Yezirah, the frist emanation was the spirit of the living God, from which proceeded the entire phenomenal world. This same spirit cause ether, water, and fire to emanate from each other. This Cabala occult basic teaching says that from ether arises the intellectual world, from water the material, and from fire the spiritual, as the angels and the throne of God. These four sefiroth are followed by the six bounds of space, height depth, east, west, north and south.
There is no consistent view concerning the nature of the sefiroth. Sometimes they are regarded as intermediaries between God and the visible world and at other times as the manifestations of the powers and properties of God? CONFUSION – Pantheistic, Luciferian, CONFUSION. All attempts to reconcile the conflicting views regarding the existence of God both IN and ABOVE lead nowhere but the same pantheistic confusion of the Hindus and Pagans, making a mockery of the Shema.
The issuance of the sefiroth from God was regarded by the logically thinking Cabalist as wrecking the doctrine of his immutability and infinity. To get around this very obvious problem the Cabalists simply said that God’s design to manifest himself had existed from all eternity. However, then since God in his infinity filled the entire universe, (you should again see here the Pantheism of Cabala), no room was left for the sefiroth until Moses ben Jacob Cordovero and Isaac Luria in the mid sixteenth century. Now they figured there must be two CONCENTRATIONS, one a contraction and the other a retraction? Oyveh ! If you have not guessed such levels of confusion are called GNOSTICISM, though some people would be so deceived to call such thing spiritual from God, forgetting that God is NOT the author of confusion. Lucifer is the god of all such occult and Gnostic confusion.
Original teachings of gnosticism have much in common with Kabbalah. In fact the Core terminology of classical gnostics was Jewish names of God. Mainstream Gnostics accepted a "Jewish Messiah" as a key figure of gnosticism.
One of the most serious and sustained criticisms of Kabbalah is that it may lead away from monotheism. That really puts it quite mildly, since this Luciferian occultism is classic PANTHISM. Some forms of Cabala even promote the belief that there is a supernatural counterpart to God as in Zoroastrianism. The way all Cabala holds to this impersonal basic reality in God, where aspects of God may only be known impersonally in His Creation and Revelation it is astonishing that any Jew or Christian would fail to see the Pantheism. All of Cabala abandons the personal Biblical concept of God. It is downright heretical to say the very least and in fact is very high level Luciferian demonic Occultism. It really should be easy to see that old Serpent, HaSatan, the devil in every Cabala tree regardless of what the Kabbalist may call it.
