We are reading from the prologue of Volume 1 of the Soncino Zohar, page 9. In the beginning Rab Hamnuna, the venerable said, Rabbi Hamnuna, "We find here a reversal of the order of the letters of the alphabet. This is talking about the Hebrew alphabet, now. The first two words of the Scripture, which are Bereshith Bara, that means "in the beginning he created", okay. And the first letter of those first words of Scripture are Beth, that's likened to our English B, but the two words following the first Elohim Eth, which means God thee, in the Hebrew those words begin with the olive. So what this learned Rabbi is saying is that the first words of the Scripture begin with B, and the second two words of the Scripture begin with A. So the letters are reversed, and we're going to do a little study here as to the explanation of why.
The letters are reversed. And this is the reason says the Rabbi Hamnuna. When the Holy One, blessed be he was about to make the world all the letters of the alphabet were still embryonic. You see, the Zohar, or the Kabbalah speaks about the letters of the Hebrew alphabet. Now we know according to other readings that the letters of the Hebrew alphabet represent aspects of the force, or aspects of the power of the Godhead. But I want to suggest to you that the letters of the alphabet also represent human beings.
See, the study of Kabbalah has been so abstract, I've been saying this as long we're in it, but I believe the worlds that the Zohar speak about, are human beings, and I believe at least in this exhortation, or let me put to you this way, at least we can take this exhortation and apply it to human beings.
I would have to say that this conversation existed on a very high level that we cannot comprehend right now, but also this conversation between the letters of the Hebrew alphabet, which represents spiritual forces, okay, that they also exist in human beings.
So everything that we read about that went on in the high realms of the spirit, we can relate it to ourselves, because every aspect of the Godhead, every aspect of Adam Kadmon, exists on infinite multiple levels, so that means we're going to take this exhortation of what happened at the beginning of the world as we know it today, and we're going to apply it to ourselves. Because we, everyone who is following the Lord Jesus today, who has laid down everything, who has been willing to lay down all of the false doctrine in the church, and everything they've ever believed and follow him anywhere, we are the beginning of the world that we are becoming.
The Lord Jesus is making us into a world, he is creating us a new. So everything that we read about concerning the creation of the world applies to us, and each man that is following Jesus can relate himself to these letters, these Hebrew forces that are approaching the unlimited one, and saying, "Please use me as the first sound, as the sound that will go forth, not the first sound, but as the sound the creative sound, that will go forth to form the universe. And this is a spiritual principle that as far as I know is shared just about by every spiritual discipline that the worlds, the original force that brought the world into existence was a sound. The creative sound of the Lord Jesus Christ, and that is why the Hindus sound the om, they believe that this sound, however they pronounce it, om is the primordial sound. Well what's so great about a primordial sound? What is so great about a primordial sound is the energy or the power, the degree of strength that this sound carried with it.
When we can reproduce the primordial sound within ourselves, we will be an expression of the energy that existed at the time of creation which was a phenominal amount of energy because the worlds arose out of it. So to sound a primordial sound, is an activity that is designed to acquire power. The worlds are dying today, this world that I am, if God doesn't intervene I will die, this is world is dying, every world on this planet is dying, the planet is dying, the universe is dying. Everything dies because we all abide in death since the fall, and what is the fall, the fall was separation from the unlimited source of energy that originally spoke us or sounded us into existence.
So let's go on. What I did want to say, is that this letter, the first letter that approached, the Holy One, the Olive, you see, all these letters are coming to the unlimited one, and saying use me and giving a reason why in the Ensof, the unlimited one should use their measure of energy or their signature of energy, their particular aspect of energy. You see all of these 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet were within the Ensof, and I'm not really sure who this Holy One is, maybe that's not the Ensof, I guess it's not the Holy One, it must be Adam Kadmon, but at this point , I'm not even sure, okay, I think the Holy One is Adam Kadmon, but that's not the point of this message, okay.
And all of the letters are saying "Use me". Well have you ever met a Christian that says, "Use me"? I was one of them, I ran up to that altar and I was jumping up and down and saying, "Take me Lord, use me, take me", and everybody has a reason why the Lord should take them. See, today Adam Kadmon is appearing to us as the Lord Jesus Christ, take me Lord, why should I take you? Well I love you and I'll follow you anywhere. Why should I take you? Well, I have a lot of money I can give to your church, why should I take you?
Well I'm very strong, I can travel to mission fields and survive. I'm a musician take me. I can build a building, take me, and you're going to see that every letter that approaches the, I'm going to say Adam Kadmon, I think that's who the Holy One is at this point, that approaches Adam Kadmon and says "Use me", Adam Kadmon turns around and for every good quality that they use to justify offering to be that sound that brings creation into existence, Adam Kadmon says to them, "Yes, what you're saying is true, but you also have negative qualities." And the sound that brings creation into existence must be a perfect sound, and for that reason the Scripture tells us that the foundation of the world is an incorruptible foundation, if his name is the Lord Jesus Christ. No sin was found in him, you see. But this world that we live in today, the planet, the universe, and each individual human being, we are founded upon a corruptible foundation. Somehow one of these letters see, not the one that Adam Kadmon chose, overshadowed the one who was called to sound the perfect sound, and the usurper of the authority founded this imperfect mortal world.
So therefore we all need a new foundation, and the process of imparting this new incorruptible foundation to the Mimbers of humanity, is the process called salvation, salvation is a process, it is an experience that goes on for years, and for generations. It's already been going on for 2,000 years. You don't get saved when you answer an altar call. Sorry about that.
Okay, God said no to the olive, and this is the reason, when the Holy One, when the Holy One, blessed be he, was about to make the world, all the letters of the alphabet were still embryonic. Brethren we are all embryonic.
If Christ is in you, Christ is embryonic, if Christ is not in you you're not even embryonic. Christ must be grafted to you. The Lord, there is no way to equip you for eternal life unless the seed, the embryo is grafted to you. You see when we receive Christ, he's an embryo. An embryo is a fertilized egg, you see. The Christ that's grafted to us is fertilized. He's the fertile seed that has the potential to grow up into the whole spiritual man.
So all the letters when God was about to make the worlds, all the letters were embryonic. Brethren the Lord is about to remake the world. The regeneration is in progress, and all of the letters, all of the Mimbers of the church are embryonic, and also the Jews wherever Christ is, I still don't really know whether he's in all of the Jews or just in some of the Jews, I don't have that straight, but Christ is in some of the Jews at least, and he's in some of the Christians, and wherever Christ is appearing, or the collective number of all of the people where Christ is grafted, we represent the letters of the Hebrew alphabet, and the embryonic worlds, which are the beginning of the regeneration that Jesus spoke about.
So when he was about to make the world, all the letters of the alphabet were still embryonic, and for 2,000 years the Holy One blessed by he, had contemplated them and toyed with them. I find that so interesting that the Zohar talks about 2,000 years, and here it is 2,000 years since Jesus was crucified, and the embryo of Christ became available to the world.
So for 2,000 years the Holy One blessed be he had contemplated them and toyed with them when he came to create the world, all the letters presented themselves before him in reversed order. The letter tav advanced in front and pleaded. That letter tav is the last letter of the Hebrew alphabet, and this is what the tav had to say. Now this tav represents a company of people that are thinking the same way.
May it please thee O Lord of the world, to place me first in the creation of the world, seeing that I am the concluding letter of the Hebrew word EMeTH, it's the Hebrew word that means truth, which is engraved upon your seal, and seeing that you are called by this very name, now this is the letter tav, speaking to the Lord, and since your name is truth, it is most appropriate for the king to begin with the final letter of EMeTH and to create with me the world. Does anybody see flattery in this? The letter olive is saying "take me, because you are truth and the final letter of truth is in my name", that is a wrong spirit brethren, that is a spirit of flattery. The Holy One blessed be he said to her, so we the tav is female, "Thou art worthy and deserving but it is not proper that I begin with you the creation of the world, since you are destined to serve as a mark on the foreheads of the faithful ones who have kept the law from olive to tav, from the beginning to end, and through the absence of this mark the rest will be killed, and further you form the conclusion of vav, death, you letter olive, you form the conclusion of vav. I don't see the olive in there, but I don't know Hebrew.
So we see that Adam Kadmon said to the olive, "No, you will not be the letter, you will not the sound, you will not be the sound that brings creation into existence, you have another job, and your job is to be the mind of Christ, your job is to be the mark on the foreheads of the faithful ones who have kept the law from beginning to end, and if they don't have this mark, they will be killed. So you see you have a very important job to go forth and become the mind of Christ of these faithful ones, but you're not the one to sound the sound that will bring the creation into existence.
Therefore, this is still the Lord speaking, therefore you are not meet or you are not qualified to initiate the creation of the world, you are called to do something else. The shin then came to the fore and pleaded, O Lord of the worlds, may it please thee to begin with me the world, seeing that I am the initial letter of your name Shaddai, which means almighty, and Shaddai is the name of God. Does anybody know which Sefirah Shaddai is associated with? We haven't really spoken about Shaddai very much. He is associated with the Yesod. Your name is Shaddai, almighty, and it is most fitting to create the world through that holy name, said he or said the Lord is reply, "You are worthy, and you are good, you are true, but I may not begin through you the creation of the world since you from part of the group of letters expressing forgery, which means falsehood, which is not able to exist unless the caf and the resh draw you into their company, hence it is that a lie to obtain credence must always commence with something true.
This is a little complicated, I'm going to read the whole idea and then I'll comment on it. This is the letter shin now asking to be the letter, the sound that will call forth the creation of the universe. And the Lord said, You are worthy and you are good and you are true. Now remember this can be applied to, everything that we're talking about here can be applied to human beings. You are good, you are worthy and you are true, but I may not begin through you, the creation of the world, since you form part of a group. You see you in yourself are good, but you are part of a whole, that expresses falsehood. You are part of whole that lies, you're joined to them, you are one with a group that lies, even though you yourself are good. And this group is not able to exist unless the caf and the resh, two of the Hebrew letters draw you into their company.
So we see it's a group of three, one good and two evil, hence it is that a lie, in order to obtain credence, must always commence with something true. You know that is the ultimate antichrist, mixture, some truth and some lies, I've been teaching that for years.
If there's a mixture, it's not of God, and if you don't know this law, you don't know this rule, it brings utter confusion into your mind. Well what he said was, the first thing that he said was true, but what he said after that wasn't true, I don't know what to believe, and some people when they hear the first truth, just believe everything that they hear after that, and get deceived and spiritually killed. So this letter shin, you are a part of that group, even though you in and of yourself are okay, you're a part of that group. What does that mean? This is talking about our carnal mind. Yes we all have good qualities especially all of us Pharisees, your conscious mind is good, you do all these good works, you've been taking people to church for years, you've been tithing and giving donations and helping people for years, but brethren you are all tied up with the resh and the caf, two evil letters called Satan and Leviathan that do evil all the time, and you are bed fellows with them.
So who, the company that you keep is very important, and the company that you are keeping shin, Satan and Leviathan, all you Pharisees out there that have the Holy Spirit, even those of you that have Christ grafted to you, Satan the unconscious part of your carnal mind, and Leviathan the subconscious part of your carnal mind are ruining your whole relationship with me, because even though you're good, when I look at you I see the evil of the whole. The whole of you is pronouncing evil, it's producing evil. Because the shin is a letter of truth, that letter by which the patriarchs commune with God, but caf and resh are letters belonging to the evil side, which in order to stand, which in order to stand firm attach themselves to the shin. Now the shin is a good letter. You are good and you have evil people attached to you, you are judged on the basis of the whole that you are a part of.
So these evil letters attach themselves to the shin, thus forming a conspiracy, you become a part of the conspiracy, even if you're blinded to Satan and Leviathan within you, even if you've put up a wall of defense and you have no idea what they're doing through you, because you are joined to them, you are a part of their conspiracy, therefore no man is innocent. No mortal man is innocent.
Having heard all of this the shin departed. And enters the Zade and says, "O Lord of the world, may it please you to create with me the world, in as much as I am the sign of the righteous. And he says that because the Hebrew word that means "righteous" is "Zadikim", and Zade is the first letter of that word. "..and of yourself who are called righteous, here's flattery again, and you Lord of your self who is called righteous, as it written, For the Lord is righteous, he loveth righteousness, and therefore it is acceptable, or it is meet, or it is acceptable to create the world with me, because my letter forms the word righteous, and you're righteous, I'm a part of you. Do you hear this? These letters on our level down here in the world of action representing people, saying, "I'm a part of you Lord, I have the Holy Spirit, I have the Spirit of Christ, I am a part of you, take me into eternal life.
You have to separate from the conspiracy first, brethren. You're a part of, a conspiracy to do what? A conspiracy to kill truth, which is Christ, you're not innocent. But of course I went back to the shin there. Let's see what the Lord has to say about the Zade. "And the Lord answered saying, "Oh Zade, you art Zade and you signify righteousness, but you must concealed, you may not come out in the open so much, lest you give the world cause for offense, for you consist of the letter nun, surmounted by the letter yod, and what this is talking about here is the Hebrew letters, anyone listening to this tape that doesn't know it, can be likened to hieroglyphics or the Chinese or the Japanese letters, they're symbols, each of the Hebrew letters is a symbols, each of the Hebrew letters is a symbol, and what the Lord is saying here is that you, Zade is made up of 2 other letters, the forms of 2 other letters are put together to form a third letter called Zade. You are made from the nun, and from the letter yod, the letter yod goes on top of the letter nun.
So you consists of the letter nun surmounted by the letter yod, representing together the male and female principles. Now isn't that interesting. I know in Chinese the Ying/Yang talked about the male female principles, I did not know there was a Hebrew letter that represents the male and female principles. That's very interesting. Zade represents the male and female principles, and this is the mystery of the creation of the first man, who was created with 2 faces, male and female combined. In the same way, the nun and the yod in the Zade are turned back to back and not face to face, whether the Zade is upright or turned downward. In other words, you can turn this letter upside down and it still looks the same. The Holy One blessed by he said to her further, "I will in time divide you in two so as to appear face to face, but you will go up in other place.
In other words, the world will not be created by the Zade, but I will divide you, you're a combination of two letters, you're male and female and then we'll separate the yod from the nun, and you will go up, I guess that means a good thing, you'll ascend, you will mature and you will manifest, but not as Zade, you will be divided and you're going to have another face, so as to appear face to face, but you will go up in another place. You're not going to look like a Zade, you're going to look like something else. And that's just another way of saying, we are not going to look like this brethren. We are going to be divided, listen to this message of the doctrine of Christ here, look, we're going to be divided from the evil cohorts that we're in conspiracy with, Satan and Leviathan, okay we are male and female, Christ is in us, and we have a female side, our soul, our personality, and we will, we are not the, look this is not the world to come, we are it brethren. Not only are we not going to be raptured, we are not going to look this in heaven, we're not going to stay like this, we're going to be divided, see.
And we will ascend, we will go up, but we're not going to look like this, therefore the world cannot the Zade, or the Lord cannot use the Zade to be the sound, the creative sound that will initiate the formation of the worlds, because the letter that is used, the creative sound that creates the world, the worlds will be created in the image of that letter.
You see, this can even be lined up to Satan coming to Jesus and saying, our Alternate Translation of the temptation included one suggestion by Satan that you perfect the people of the world without righteousness, that's in the Alternate New Testament if you recall it or if you want to look it up. Satan said to Jesus, "Why don't you perfect the people without the judgment, without the separation from their carnal mind, perfect them just like they are." And Jesus said, "No I can't do that." And of course the reason that he can't do it is that these people would be eternal with the nature of evil. This is whole doctrine of Christ here, (chuckle), very interesting.
I will in time divide you in two, you see, you have to wait for the right time. With Paul it wasn't the right season for him to be divided you see, he went as far as he could go without the division, because he wasn't in the season. He said, "I will in time divide you in two, so as to appear face to face." I'm not sure what that means, but I know face is a cognomen. Well you know, I bet you I know what that means. We're studying in the Tree Of Life, I haven't really gotten into it in much depth yet, but the Sefirah must face one another. Malkut has her back to Ze'ir Anpin. In fallen man her back is to the Yesod, the male organ of Ze'ir Anpin. And for Malkut, we are all Malkut, okay separated from the powers of God. For us to receive the life giving glory or the life giving flow that will impart eternal life to us, we must have an act of spiritual sexual intercourse with Ze'ir Anpin, who is Christ Jesus to us. And of course Ze'ir Anpin must join with the Lord Jesus Christ for us to receive the glory that will impart eternal life.
And in order for that act of spiritual intercourse to happen, we, who represent Malkut, that's in case you don't know and this is your first tape, we who represent Malkut, she is the tenth Sefirot, she is the Sefirot that is in man, according to Kabbalah, according to the doctrine of Christ, we're talking about the personality, we're talking about Abel within the individual. He must turn towards God you see. If you want eternal life, you must turn towards God in your thoughts, in your mind you must turn towards God. And that is what this face to face means.
Humanity, all of humanity must turn in their minds, they must turn to God. And you know what's happening in this country today, we're turning the exact opposite way. So it says here, in the same way the nun and the yod of the Zade are turned back to back and not face to face, whether the Zade is upright or turned downward, and that probably means whether Cain is on top or whether Abel is on top. The Holy One blessed be he said to her further, "I will in time divide you in two, that's the circumcision, so as to appear face to face. So if you can turn around and face your God, face the Lord Jesus Christ, face Christ Jesus within you and receive all of his life giving glory.
"...but you will go up in another place." You'll go up in another time line, you're going up in this time line brethren. You're going up in another time line, you can't stay the way you are. So the Zade departed, and the letter "pe" presented herself and pleaded thus, "May it please you O Lord of the world, to create through me the world, seeing that I signify redemption and deliverance, which you art to vouch safe to the world, redemption and deliverance. And of course these letters represent Hebrew words, the "pe", redemption is purkana, and padute, redemption and deliverance. So the "pe" continued, "It is hence meet that through me the world be created." But the Lord answered, "You are worthy, but you represent transgression, the letter p, or pay it may be the first letter of purkana and peduth, which means redemption and deliverance, but it's also the first letter of transgression, Pesha, and what's more, you are shaped like the Serpent, who has his head curled up within his body. Let's take a look at that letter, it sounds to me like the Fiery Serpent. You are shaped like the Fiery Serpent. "...symbolic of the guilty man who bends his head and extends his hand." So what's that saying? Have you ever met anybody who extends his hand, but won't look you in the eye? I've met a lot of people, I know someone right now I'm thinking about, he would extend his hand, but won't look you in the eye, and the Scripture says, or this commentary on the Scripture says, If that's your habit, you're guilty. You're carrying guilt about something in your life.
The letter Ayin was likewise refused as standing for iniquity, and the Hebrew word for iniquity is Awon, beginning with an "a", despite her plea that she represents humility, Anavah. You see, do you hear this, all of the letters are all of the people who are coming to the Lord and saying, "Take me, and I'm qualified because I've done this good work, and every time the Lord comes back and says, "Yes you did this good work, but you also did this evil work. Then the Samekh appeared and said, "O Lord of the world, may it please thee to create through thee the world, in as much as I represent upholding Semikah of the fallen, that's the Hebrew word Semikah, and it means upholding of the fallen. As it is written, "The Lord upholdeth all that fall." The Lord answered her, "This is just the reason why should remain in your place, for should you leave it, what will be the fate of the fallen ones, seeing that they are upheld by you? In other words, that's the ministry that you have stay there, you're not called to be the creative sound that brings forth the universe. And that's interesting because Ayin, that's the letter that signifies Keter, for those of us who have been studying Kabbalah.
She immediately departed. The nun entered and pleaded her merits as being the initial letter in the Hebrew word Nora, which means fearful in praises, and then another translation for that word, I recognize that word awesome, fearful in praises, awesome. "...as well in the Hebrew word Nawa, which means comely is praise for the righteous. Let me read you that again, "nun entered in a pleaded her merits as being the initial letter in fearful in praises, the Hebrew word Nora, as well as comely is praise for the righteous, Hebrew word Nawa. The Lord said, "O Nun, return to your place, for it is for your sake as representing the falling Nephelem, that the Samekh return to her place.
In other words remember the Samekh was the one that said, "My job is uphold the fallen." And the Lord said, "No I'm not going to take you out of your role and let you be the sound that creates the universe, because who will uphold the fallen one if you're not there. And then the next letter that comes asking to create the universe, the Nun, the Lord said to the Nun, "Well you're the fallen one, you're the Nofelim that the Samekh is holding up, so I'm not going to use you to create the universe." Now you know brethren I have talked to you about this, this is a hard personally a hard word to me, when I believe that there are faithful servants of the Lord in ministry today that are not being called to go forward at this time, because they are needed in the ministry that they are in, to help the people on the level, to hold up the people on the level that they're ministering, but I believe that the day will come that those who minister faithfully on a particular level, eventually the Lord will give them the opportunity to ascend also, but I know that this is a reality in the church.
And the Lord says to the Nun, for Nofelim the fallen one, "so remain there under the support of Samekh, and the Nun immediately returned to her place.
Now you know we just, I've had this in this ministry. People, I have in mind right now, a couple of people that just wanted to go out on their own, wanted their own ministry, some of them left, but you're not always ready for your own ministry or even if you are ready, the Lord is not doing that in your life now. Be faithful if the Lord puts you under someone else, stay there, if he sends you out, go.
So here the Lord says, "Remain there under her support." If you're put under somebody, stay under them until the time comes, because if you go before the time, you're sure to fail. The Nun immediately returned to her place. The Mim came up and said, "O Lord of the world, may it please you to create by me the world in as much as I commence the words, I am the first letter of the Hebrew word Malek, which means king, which is your title Lord.
See, all of these letters, well not all of them, but I see a lot of them are saying, Well my letter begins words that are cognomens for the adjective for the attribute of you Lord, so therefore take me because I have a quality like you Lord, take me because I have one of your qualities, that's what they're saying. But the Lord replied, "It is so assuredly, that I cannot employ you in the creation of the world, for the reason that the world requires a king. Let me read that again. "Create me by the world in as much as I commence the word Malek, which is your title", and the Lord replied and said, "Yes it is so assuredly, but I cannot employ you in the creation of the world for the reason that the world requires a king." Well that's not a good enough reason I guess, to use you in the creation of the world. "Return therefore to your place, you along with the lamed and the Kaph, since the world cannot exist without a Malek.
Okay that's interesting, let me explain that to you, the letter Mim, which the "m" sound if you can hear it, said, "Take me, because I am first letter of the word Malek which means king. And the Lord said, "I can't take you only for that reason." So even if you really are qualified, the Lord says, "I can't take you only for that reason, and what comes to mind right now is when years ago the Lord told me I would be a teacher, I had no idea what was waiting for me, and I had no idea that I would be teaching a doctrine that no one else in the church was teaching, but in preparation for this ministry, I was going through some very hard times, and I said to the Lord, "Well you said that I'm going to be a teacher, why don't you just let me minister already, let me be a teacher." And the Lord said, "No if I made you a teacher today, you would be destroyed", because I had the message then, I could have preached at that time, but my mind and my personality and my ability to cope with what, with the persecution that was coming my way, and to cope with everything that I would have to face, that anyone who was called to this ministry would have to face, I was not developed in those areas. So the fact that I had the message and was capable of preaching was enough of a reason for the Lord to send me, because I would have been destroyed.
We therefore read back in the Zohar, it's not enough of a reason to send you that the world requires a king. You see the world needs you, the world needed the message that I had, but there were other areas that needed to be developed as well as my teaching ability, which were not developed, and he could not send me.
Therefore the Lord continues, "Return to your place, and you along with the lamed and the Kaph, you need two other letters, since the world cannot exist without a king. Listen to this, he says, I can't send you just because the world requires a king, but get together with these two other letters, Lamed and Kaph, because the world does need a king, you're right, the world does need a king, but you can't go without Christ you see. You can't go without the two others, Christ Jesus and the glorified Jesus Christ. You can't go by yourself, Christ in me alone could not go, I had to have Christ Jesus and the glorified Jesus Christ as well.
At that moment the Kaph descended from its throne of glory and quaking and trembling said, "O Lord of the universe, may it please you to begin through me the creation of the world, seeing that I am your own, the Hebrew word Kabod, which means honor, I am your own honor. And when Kaph descended from its throne of glory, 200,000 worlds began to shake. And you know what I think about when I read this, the Scripture I believe it's in Matthew, it said when Jesus was crucified there was a great earthquake, and the world was shaken, and the saints arose and appeared in Jerusalem. If I have the right city, do I have the right city? Yes, thank you Jesus. 200,000 worlds, that's people brethren, we are the world, and I'm sure that 200,000 is a spiritual number.
The shaking began within the people, that Christ should overturn evil, should overturn Cain, that Abel should rise above Cain, and that Christ Jesus should be built in the people, and married to the glorified Jesus Christ. So when Kaph descended from his throne, when the glorified Jesus Christ descended from his throne, the glory, and planted his seed in all of the people, a couple of thousand years later, 200,000 worlds began to shake. The throne trembled and all of the worlds quaked, and were about to fall in ruins. Brethren, that's what is happening to everybody here, your carnal mind and the lifestyle associated with your carnal mind is falling into ruin. "...said to her the Holy One, blessed be his name, Kaph, Kaph, what doest thou here? I will not create the world with you, go back to your place since you stand for extermination. The Hebrew word is Kelayah, beginning with a K, go back to your place.
So we see that the Kaph originally said "Take me, because I'm the first letter of the word Melekh". Okay we are talking about the Mim here and yet we see that the Zohar weaves in the Lamed and the Kaph with the Mem, and the exhortation continues, "And when Kaph descended from its glory, 200,000 worlds began to shake, the throne trembled and all the worlds quaked and were about to fall in ruin, and said to her the Holy One, blessed be his name, "Kaph, Kaph, what are you doing here, why did you descend, why did you come down? I will not create the world with you, go back to your place, since you standeth for extermination. Well it sure sounds like the Lord Jesus to me, the extermination of the carnal mind, definitely. So the Kaph came down, and the worlds shook, Jesus came down, he shook the world and he went back up, right?
Return then to your place and remain there. And Jesus is now above the highest heaven, and he remained there. Immediately she departed and returned to her own place. The Yod then presented herself and said... and for those of you who are thinking, "Well I thought Jesus was founding the world, why is the Lord sending the Kaph back? Because we're going to do the greater works. Jesus came down, he shook the world, he was crucified and he ascended, and he has to stay up there, all he sent back was his seed, because it's the next generation, the next generation is going to found the world. That's the true meaning of apostle, the meaning of apostle is to found churches, but the church is a human being.
So when we plant the seed of Christ, we are founding churches and we're founding worlds. Jesus' job was to be crucified and glorified, and to return to the worlds above and stay up there, he sent his seed down, it's our job to go out and found all the worlds, to plant the seed, that's what it means to found the world, to plant the foundation in the people And the way the Lord is doing that today is through the doctrine of Christ. You have to either hear the word or read the word, spoken by the Spirit of Christ in a preacher, and you get the seed, and some people are more fertile than others. So people can get the seed from reading a little bit, others may have to sit under it, or be reading for a long time, but that's how the Lord is doing it.
So the letter Yod presented herself and said, "May it please you O Lord to vow to save me first place in the creation of the world, since I stand first in the sacred name, and we know that the sacred name is YHVH, the tetra grammaton YHVH, and the Yod is the first name, the first letter of the sacred name. The Lord said to her, "It is sufficient for you, that you are engraven and marked in myself, and that you are the channel of my will. You must not be removed from my name. Yod you have to be a part of the Holy name, YHVH, the tetra grammaton, therefore you cannot be removed from the whole name to be the letter that founds the world, you have to stay where you are.
So we see that these letters, they're sort of broken up in to two categories, letters that are not qualified to found the world, because they have an evil as well as a good meaning, they are letters which form good as well as evil words, or they are letters that may be qualified, but their job is so important that they have to stay where they are. What's coming to my mind right now, is the book of Revelation, saying, "Who is able to open the seals of this book, who is qualified to open the seals of this book?"
Then the Tef came up and said, "O Lord of universe, may it please you to place me at the head of the creation of the world, since through me you are called good."
This is the letter Tef now, and the Hebrew for good is "Tobe" and you are good and upright, you are Tobe, and I am the T of Tobe, use me." And the Lord said to her, "I will not create the world through you, as the goodness which you represented is hidden and concealed within yourself, as it is written, "Oh how abundant is your goodness which you have laid up for them that fear thee, and since then it is treasured within yourself, it has no part in the world which I am going to create, but only in the world to come."
I have to read that again, let's read it again, and the Lord said to the Tef, "I will not create the world through you as the goodness which you represent is hidden and concealed within yourself. Since then it is treasured within yourself, it has no part in the world which I am going to create, it has no part in the world which I am going to create, but only in the world to come. And therefore it is because your goodness is hidden within you, that the gates of the temple sank into the ground, and furthermore, the letter Hey is at your side, and when joined, you two make sin, it's the Hebrew word Hith. Okay let me go back, what I'm stumbling over here is this may be in the translation, since then, the treasure is within yourself, it has no part in the world which I am going to create, but it has a part in the world to come. Well that sounds like a contradiction to me. Is not the world to come the world that is being created? Since then it is treasured within yourself, it has no part in the world which I am going to create, but only in the world to come. This has to be there, either I'm not seeing this, or there has to be a problem in the translation. Does anyone not see my problem here? It has no part in the world which I am going to create, but only in the world to come.
To me that says, but it does have a part in the world to come. So I think that's not... Okay, we're talking about the Tef now. And the Lord said, "I will not create the world through you, as the goodness which you represented hidden and concealed within yourself." You know this is the same thing that Jesus spoke about when he said, "If you take the talent that you have and you bury it, and you don't do anything with it, you will be removed from you, it will be given to another." And I think at one time I had a revelation that the other that it would be given to is Satan.
Usually we think it will be given to another Christian, but I do believe that the Lord is reminding me, that at one time, he did bring forth that revelation that if you don't use it, Satan will take it and use it, and that is the witness that I see as to what is being said here.
Since then it is treasured within yourself, it has no part in the world which I am going to create, but it will have a part in the world to come that the other one is going to create. See there are two worlds, there are two resurrections.
There is an ascended evil world that is already coming into existence, just as the world of Christ, or the time line of Christ is coming into existence. So because you hold my life inside of you and you won't give it out and you won't share it, or you won't use it, or you won't live out of it, it will not be used in the world that I am going to create, but Satan will make good use of it, because if you're not giving into my kingdom, Satan's kingdom has access to it.
And further, it is because your goodness is hidden within me, that the gates of the temple sank to the ground. I'm not really sure what that means, I know that gates are the entranceway to the temple, to the temple of God that's a good thing, so your access to the temple of God sank into the ground, or sank underneath the ground. It sounds like it's talking about Abel. Abel is our access to the temple of God, to the higher things of God. I believe the temple is Yesod, okay.
Now we are down here, we're Malkut and the human race is in exile, we have to get connected to the power of God, according to Kabbalah, we need to be connected to Yesod, according to the doctrine of Christ, you need to be married to Christ Jesus within us, and then Christ Jesus will marry the glorified Jesus Christ.
So the gate of the temple sounds like Abel to me, he sank underneath the ground of Cain. That means you lost your opportunity. Now, you have to go through a war to get Abel out from under Cain, which may or may not happen in your individual life. And furthermore the letter HeT is at your side, and when joined you make sin. In other words we're talking about the letter Tef, and the letter HeT, when we put the two of them together, you get the Hebrew words HeT, which means sin. And it's for this reason that these two letters, Tef and HeT, are not to be found in the names of any of the tribes of Israel. So two letters put together makes sin, that's talking about Satan and Levaithan, that's your sin nature, Satan and Leviathan. So you two letters, you cannot be used to create the world. So she departed immediately, that's the Tef, departed immediately.
Then the Zayin presented herself, and put forth her claim saying, "O Lord of the world, may it please you to put me at the head of the creation, since I represent the observance of the Sabbath, as it is written, remember Zakhor, the day of the Sabbath to keep it holy, that's the Hebrew word Zakhor. The Lord replied, "I will not create the world through you, since you represent war, being in shape like a sharp pointed sword, that's the shape of the letter, or a lance. The Zayin immediately departed from his presence. See you cannot be warlike and be used in the ministry of Christ. See, you can get away with that when you have the Holy Spirit, but if you want to be a minister of Christ, and of the doctrine of Christ, if you want to be a minister of reconciliation, your carnal mind must go down under Christ, and you must minister out of Christ, the peace maker, and even if you are a mortal man who are peaceful in your carnality, you will find that everyone has a potential to be argumentative or to manifest pride or some ungodly manifestation, whatever potential you have, no matter how mild a person you are, if you go to minister Christ in your carnal mind, your potential to disrupt the relationship or cause some kind of problem will pulled to the surface in you.
You must go in Christ, because Satan will pull up whatever she can out of your personality to hinder you and to sabotage your assignment, when you go in your carnal mind. But if you go in your Christ mind under the anointing, Satan has no power to bring destruction, and the purposes of the Lord Jesus will be accomplished, in whatever you're assigned to do.
So the Zayin immediately departed from his presence, and the vav entered and put forth her claim saying, "O Lord of the world may it please thee to use me first in the creation of the world, in as much as I am one of the letters of your name."
And the Lord said to her, "You vav, as well as heth, suffice it to you that you are the letters of my name, and what name is that? It's the holy name, the tetragrammaton, Jehovah, YHVH.
You vav as well as the heth suffice it to you that you are the letters of my name, part of the mystery of my name engraven and impressed in my name. You are part of the mystery of my name, the mystery that is engraven and impressed on those letters. I will therefore not give you first place in the creation of the world.
Now remember that yod was sent back also, because the yod was a part of the holy name. So there are three letters of the holy name, the yod, the vav, and the heth, the heth appears twice, all three of these letters were rejected to be used to create the world, because the holy name cannot be disrupted.
Then appeared the letter Daleth as well as the letter Gimel, and put forth similar claims. The Lord gave them a similar reply saying, it should suffice you to remain side by side together, since the poor will not cease from the land, who will thus need benevolence. So I guess, who will thus need benevolence. The poor will not cease from the land, so they will always be needing benevolence. So although it doesn't say it, it's saying indirectly that the Daleth and the Gimel produce benevolence, therefore you must stay in the land, you must because the people need mercy. Who is the land? The land is the personality, the personalities in the fallen world, we need mercy, God only knows we need mercy.
So you who produce benevolence, you have to stay. So the Daleth signifies poverty, the Hebrew word is Dalluth, and the Gimel, beneficence, the Hebrew word Gemul. Therefore separate not from one another because the Gimel, the beneficence separates from Daleth, meaning poverty, the poverty, and this is not just physical poverty, the spiritually poverty stricken ones, okay, will be utterly destroyed. So do not separate from one another, and let it suffice you that one maintains the other.
The beth then entered and said, "O Lord of the world, may it please you to put me first in the creation, since I represent the benedictions, Hebrew word Berakhoth offered to thee on high and below. The Holy One blessed be he said to her, the letter beth now, "Assuredly with you I will create the world, and you shall form the beginning in the creation of the world." The Aleph remained in her place without presenting herself. Said the Holy One, blessed be his name, Aleph, Aleph, wherefore comest thou not before me like the rest of the letters?
She answered, "Because I saw all the other letters leaving your presence without any success, what then could I achieve there? And further since you have already bestowed on the letter beth this great gift, it is not meet for the supreme king to take away the gift which he has made to his servant and give it to another. Now this is the only letter that shown any humility in all of these letters, twenty two letters. And the Lord said to her, Aleph, Aleph, although I will begin the creation of the world with the beth, you will remain the first of the letters. My unity shall not be expressed except through you, on you shall be based all calculations and operations of the world, and unity shall not be expressed, save by the letter Aleph.
Then the Holy One, blessed be his name, made higher world letters of a large pattern, and lower world patterns of a small pattern. It is therefore, that we have here two words beginning with Beth, Bereshith bara, that's Hebrew for in the beginning, we're talking about Genesis now, and then two words beginning with Aleph, Elohim Eth. They represent the higher world letters and the lower world letters, which two operate above and below together and as one. Isn't that a nice parable. So the reason that the beth was chosen, let's read that again, The beth then entered and said, "O Lord of the worlds may it please thee to put me first in the creation of the world since I represent the benedictions offered to you on high and below." And the Holy One blessed be he said to her, "Assuredly with you I will create the world, and you shall form the beginning in the creation of the world."
Now the only thing that I could see about he beth that's different, is that she represents something both above and below, she's both above and below, and none of the other letters are above and below. So the Lord took the beth and he also blessed the Aleph, because of her humility, and the Lord said to her, "Aleph, Aleph, although I will begin the creation of the world with beth, you will remain the first of the letters." So now this whole exhortation is an explanation as to why the first letter of Genesis begins with a B and not an aleph, not an A, because according to kabbalistic thought, the first word of the Scripture should begin with the first letter of the alphabet. So this is an explanation as to why the first word of the Scripture begins with a B, and not with an A.
I will begin the creation of the world with the beth, but you will remain the first of the letters. My unity shall not be expressed except through you. Now the unity is talking about the unity of the ten Sefirot, and I know that the Aleph is very important in there, but I cannot at the moment explain it to you, and I cannot explain it to you at the moment. Maybe when we come back from dinner I'll have a chance to look it up an see if the Lord gives me an explanation for you. But this is what it says, "my unity shall not be expressed except through you, and on you shall be based all calculations, and operations of the world, and unity shall not be expressed except by the letter aleph. And then the Holy One blessed be his name, the higher world letters of a large pattern, the lower world letters of the small pattern, we haven't really studied the letters yet, I know that it is a future chapter of the Tree Of Life, as we really struggle for at least the lessons that we're up to in the Tree Of Life are extremely difficult, and as we struggle through them, eventually we will find out that there are single letters and double letters, I haven't studied it myself yet. And Lord willing I'll have an exhortation, an explanation on the aleph, of the unity not being expressed without the aleph when come back from dinner. We will finish this off and Lord willing, we will do the message from the Tree Of Life. Any questions or comments? Okay.
COMMENT: I was just thinking of the vision that the Lord had given me about all of the wells, they were like oil wells, the land, but they were filled like with liquid gold, and each one of them was a letter.
PASTOR VITALE: Right, I remember you telling me that. Well you see the Lord speaks to us in his language even before we understand his language, he speaks in his language. There's always a tug of war going on in this world, in relationships in politics, in marriages, and where there is always a tug of war, where the person who is suppose to be under the authority of the other person tries to pull in their own direction. It is just human nature, there is always a tug of war, and the question is, will the mind of God prevail.
This tug of war, it exists everywhere. It's our fallen nature. In the world to come we will be a complete unity, and our negative principles will be completely in submission and under the control of the unity of Christ. You know I never really knew what to call that when I was teaching the doctrine of Christ, but the unity of Christ for us, will be Abel on top of Cain, okay Abel on top of Cain, Christ on top of Abel, Christ Jesus in the left side of our heart center married to the glorified Jesus Christ, that's what the unity of God within us means to us. That's the, see, the only way Abel can stay on top of Cain, is if Christ is top of Abel strengthening him and Christ Jesus, and Christ is down there in the belly center with Abel, Christ Jesus is on the left side of the heart center strengthening Christ, and the glorified Jesus Christ is joined to Christ Jesus. When we come in to that spiritual condition, that is the unity of the Lord within us, and that is when all blessings flow, and ultimately eternal life.
We have to be circumcised away from Leviathan, ultimately eternal life. And that is represented by the sunclad woman in Rev. 12, that's what that image is all about, the sunclad woman, she's the woman in perfect unity with the household of God. Anybody else?
