Jesus' Name Above All Other Names
Sent: Monday, May 28, 2007 2:49 PM
Thank you for this email (Jesus Not God In The Days of His Flesh).
My question is this, the name of Jesus is above all other names. To have a name to me means that it is a form of a container which would indicate having a soul. You mention that Jesus ascended to the 5th level of soul to the oneness. So that would indicate oneness of the soul aspects. But did Jesus ascend above having a name, is there any aspect of Him that fused to En-Sof to where Jesus brings forth emanations. And if Jesus didn't make it to that no name no place position how much spirit did Jesus come into. Will Jesus always have an element of his soul. I hope this question makes sense. I have been thinking about it the last couple of weeks to try and relay it to you but it seems that the question is kind of beyond me. Maybe you can not only answer my question but also present my question to me in a better form.
Thank you Pastor Vitale.
Pastor Vitale's response:
“Name” is spirit. The Names “Jehovah” and “I AM” for example are Names of God, and God is not soul. He is spirit.
“Soul” is the vessel that the spirit inhabits. Mortal mankind is all soul. We are created for be an house for the LORD. When the “house” (the human) is “inhabited” (completed) it becomes Adam, the Son of God.
I think I explained what you need to hear in the most recent LEM Message (with illustrations), although I couched this spiritual principle in terms other than what we are discussing here.
To put it simply, the spiritual essence of Jesus returned to and was dissolved in the undifferentiated “sea of consciousness” of Adam Kadmon, the creator.
This is a great mystery, but if you can hear it, this is it:
All potential extant (revealed) consciousness, thought, personalities, etc. exist in the “void,” or spiritual sea, of Adam Kadmon’s unrevealed, undisclosed (the Zohar says “recondite”), undifferentiated consciousness.
Adam Kadmon, to accomplish the Ayn Sof’s purposes as He alone understands them, can, at His own Will and discretion, call into formation any of His potentials. In other words, today, the personality of Jesus Christ, is formed on the surface of the void of Adam Kadmon’s consciousness, like a fish (shark, whale) can suddenly appear close enough to shore for bathers to see. The shark or whale was, for all intents and purposes, dissolved in the sea, ie, was an invisible part of the sea, until it appeared to the bathers.
Today, Jesus Christ, a personality that other human beings can recognize and relate to, is the “garment” or “personality” or “Name” through which the whole of Adam Kadmon’s consciousness, both revealed and concealed, is made available to the dead soul, which was created to be a house for it.
Jesus is the door, or the wormhole, that connects our two worlds – hell and the infinite recondite glory of God. The beings who were formed on the other side of the Flood were all “called back” and dissolved into the void of Adam Kadmon’s recondite consciousness because that “formation” did not accurately reflect the nature of the Name that they represented (Seth, the Son of God).
This “sea of Adam Kadmon’s consciousness” which waits patiently behind the Name, Jesus,
1 Peter 3:20
20 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited [patiently (longsuffering)] in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water. KJV
will shortly pour out upon fallen mankind through the “door” of Christ Jesus, the “footprint” in the earth of mortal humanity, of the Name, Jesus. This event is depicted throughout the whole Book of Revelation, which is indeed, the Revelation of the Name, Jesus. The “sea” that exists on the other side of that “door” is about to break forth upon the earth of humanity in the form of judgment upon everything that does not accurately represent the Name, Jesus. These elements of soul, which is the vessel, not the rider, will either change to reflect the nature of Jesus, the rider, or be destroyed.
20 And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs. KJV
The Sons of God will judge their sin nature from outside of the Holy City, that is, their Carnal Minds must agree with Christ to condemn their own Carnal Minds. Then the Blood/Spirit of Christ will pour out of the horses (their humanity), up to the very border (bridles) of the Christ (rider) within them. And the horses themselves (mortal humanity)will be immersed in the Blood/Spirit of the Rider, who has just “come into His house” (mortal humanity).
It is the Will of God that mortal humanity, the vessel that He will inhabit (the horse that He will ride), should be raised up to a place of “oneness” with Him (Yechida) which will preserve us, His house, for the life of the ages.
We are a living soul that died when we, the horse, divested itself of (threw off/unseated) its “Rider,” our only source of life and safety (salvation). But we shall live again, when our Lord (Rider) reclaims us and lives through us again, which is the purpose for which we were created.
2 After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.
1 Peter 2:5
5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. KJV
