Praise the Lord. Now we are on Lesson 7 for those of you who have notes, page 5, the second paragraph. I started to preach this Part 19 last week, and it turned into a whole message which we gave its own number, #560 called Shattered Vessels, God's Will or Rebellion? Now that name comes from the reality that Kabbalah teaches that the shattering of the vessels in The World of Points was God's will, but I believe that the Lord has told me, and the Doctrine of Christ teaches that it was not God's will that the vessels should shatter. Further, according to Kabbalah, the light of the eyes which form The World of Points was originally male. It was MaH , but when that light fell it became female, BaN.
Now this is what the Lord has told me, because our whole dealings with The World of Points is The World of Points as a female. I don't think I've read any Kabbalistic literature about how exactly this light fell, but this is what the Lord has told me when I asked Him. The emanations of God produce only Sons, only Sons, you see, so the light that came out of the eyes was male. It was originally male, because the union of AB and SaG produces a male, but remember as I have taught you concerning Cain and Abel, and that issue did come up on this message #560 the shattering of the vessels, both Cain and Abel were male. Now I taught for a long time in the Doctrine of Christ that Cain was really a female, but the Lord showed me as I taught it to you in this message the shattering of the vessels that both Cain and Abel were male, but in every relationship one person has to have the head, and the person that's under the head is female for the purpose of that relationship.
That's why any equal partnership is not acceptable in business, it is not acceptable to God. There has to be a junior and a senior partner to satisfy the Scripture. You have to have one person in authority responsible to God, and the junior partner is female in relation to the male partner. Now he could be a physical male, and he can have a big family, be a full man in every aspect or respect of his life, but in this partnership because he is the junior, he is female in relationship to the senior partner, and this was the relationship of Cain and Abel to each other. They were both male, they were both mortal male, but Cain was female in relation to Abel. Now in the same manner, the light that came out of the eyes, although it was male, it was MaH , was destined to be in submission to the light that came out of the forehead. Now that's pretty obvious that the light that comes out of the forehead is higher than the light that comes out of the eyes.
The World of Points is the area of Adam Kadmon that was to generate the worlds. Remember, The World of Points, the inside of The World of Points, is Adam Kadmon's ovary, and the light surrounding The World of Points is the male organ of Adam Kadmon that came forth to fertilize the seeds of Adam Kadmon's ovary. Even the collective seeds of Adam Kadmon's ovary are called Adam in the Scripture. Everything that God brings forth is male.
Now, here is a secret. Everything that God brings forth is both male and female with the male in dominion which makes the whole male. Everything, every aspect, every emanation that Adam Kadmon brings forth is both male and female, but the male always has the preeminence, and the female in God's kingdom, is never separate from the male. She is always one with the male, with the male having preeminence; therefore, the whole entity or the whole emanation is called male. Anybody not following me?
So what we are really saying is that in God's kingdom the female never appears alone. The minute the female appears alone, what is happening is apart from God's kingdom. It is a perversion. OK, everybody got that?
So The World of Points which was designed to be the reproductive area of Adam Kadmon that would ultimately bring forth the visible creation was according to the design of God to come forth in two layers. First the light that came out of the eyes which was to be overlaid by the light that came out of the forehead. So both were male. The light that came out of the eyes was originally male, but as I taught on the message The Shattering of the Vessels, there was an active rebellion in that emanation that came out of the eyes, and the inner light that was to fill the vessels of the vessels that came forth from the light of the eyes, the inner light that was to fill the vessels both....let me say that again.
The inner light of the light that came from Adam Kadmon's eyes, which was destined to fill the vessels of the light that came from Adam Kadmon's eyes, did not follow instructions and weakened itself. Now if you are not following me, you have to get the other message because I can't preach the whole thing again. You have to get message #560 because I can't preach the whole thing again. But the inner light of the light of Adam Kadmon's eyes was supposed to weaken itself for the specific purpose of preparing the vessels of the light that came forth from Adam Kadmon's eyes to contain the inner light which would be the light of Adam Kadmon's forehead.
Let me say that again. I know I didn't make it clear. The light that came from Adam Kadmon's eyes consisted both of vessels and inner light, but those vessels filled with inner light were designed to contain in the midst of them.....see there was already an inner light in the vessels that came from the eyes, but there was to come forth to exist in the midst of them the light of the forehead, the light of Adam Kadmon's forehead. So the inner light of that which came forth form Adam Kadmon's eyes instead of weakening itself as we have taught in many other messages. The way that inner light was to weaken itself was that the Sefirot of the inner light were not to line up exactly with the Sefirot of the vessels.
In other words, the Keter of the inner light was not to line up with the Keter of the vessel. It had to go one down. The Chokhmah of the inner light was to fill the Keter of the vessel so that the inner light would be weaker than the light of the vessel. Anyone not following me? You have to review message #560 if you are not following me. And there was an active rebellion. Now remember that Kabbalah makes it sound like all these lights and emanations are just light as we in our fallen carnal minds think of light as that light hanging there, but all of these lights that come forth are conscious beings. Can we call them angels? I don't know because I'm not really sure what an angel is. I'm waiting for the Lord to clarify angels for me, but all of these emanations are conscious beings.
So, knowing that, then understand that there was an act of rebellion that the inner light of the light that came from Adam Kadmon's eyes was supposed to weaken itself but did not do so. That light was supposed to weaken itself in preparation to be ruled by the light that came forth from Adam Kadmon's forehead, and the light that was supposed to weaken itself did not do so. This was an act of rebellion, and it was this act of rebellion that resulted in the shattering of the vessels as I explained in message #560.
Now, what's interesting is the rabbi that I'm taking this on-line course with in a writing that he wrote, I heard him say that the reason or at least the initial reason why men have a potential to be weaker than women....now let me clarify that, in our world today psychiatrists know that it is really important that wives submit to their husbands because a woman can really bring a man down. It is the same situation in our world today as with Cain and Abel. The males of this world have the authority over the family. God has given it to them, but that doesn't mean women are weak. In fact, very frequently, the women are stronger than the men, and if a woman sets her mind to rise up against her husband and rebel against him and peck at him and peck at him and peck at him she can break that man, and that's the truth of our human nature, and people who have a knowledge of human nature know that this is true.
So this rabbi wrote something that said that the reason for this condition of humanity is that the male had to weaken himself in order to save the fallen female. I'm not going to repeat his whole teaching here, but that's what he said, that it was necessary for the male to weaken himself, but this is not true, you see. It is not a true revelation. The female was supposed to weaken herself. The person in the Cain role, the beings that came forth as the light from the eyes, that inner light was supposed to weaken itself so that the male could rule just like in our society today, just like what I told you. You who are in a natural marriage, you have to weaken yourself. What does that mean? Are you supposed to be a weak doormat? No, it doesn't mean that. It means you have to yield to your husband, and if you have a legitimate complaint against your husband, you have to take it before the Lord. The Lord is your defender because you are the weaker vessel.
What does that mean? All it means is that your husband has the God-given authority, and if you are in a relationship with anyone where the other person has the God-given authority, that means you are the weaker vessel because the person that has the authority is more powerful than you are, because you plus God is a majority. Whoever the person is who has the authority in God is the majority. You cannot win against them. As long as that person stays in Christ, you cannot win against them; therefore, you are the weaker vessel, but you could be a very strong person, you see.
So I have to disagree with the rabbi whose course we are taking, that the Lord ever required the male to weaken himself. I know from everything the Lord has taught me for years that the man holding on, now this is a spiritual man, I'm a spiritual man, I'm not talking about physical bodies, anyone that God gives authority to, you have to hold on to that authority with all your strength because, let me tell you, brethren, once you let....and in Christ you can do it, so once you let that authority be stripped from you, not that God will never restore it, I'm not saying that, but you will have one hard time climbing up over that person that now has his spiritual foot on your spiritual neck. Take it from me, I know all about it.
So I can't believe God ever requires a spiritual male or anyone with male authority to weaken himself. Here is the Genesis of it in our discussion of the light that comes from Adam Kadmon's eyes as opposed to the light that comes from Adam Kadmon's forehead. The light that came from the eyes was supposed to weaken itself so that the light that came from the forehead could rule, but the light that came from the eyes which we will call female in relationship to the light from the forehead said, "No way, I want to be the male in this relationship." And is that not the testimony of Cain and Abel? There is nothing new under the sun. The same events that happened in the highest realms of the spirit have played themselves out in every world of the spiritual universe. Isn't that interesting?
Now we are getting on with this message here. This is the issue that we are up to in Lesson 7, and the second paragraph on page 5 says: The overlapping lights....now this is talking about the lights of Adam Kadmon's head, and for this paragraph I'm going to refer you to the drawings of message #560, these overlapping lights explain what happened to the Sefirot of the realm of the Nikudim and why the vessels of the lower seven including the Da'at shattered. Now the world of the Nikudim is The World of Points. Why the vessels of the lower seven including the Da'at shattered, and as soon as I explain drawing #1to you and get it off the board, I will talk to you about what this Da'at is.
The light of the mouth becomes manifest only at the heart of Adam Kadmon. The light of the ears of Adam Kadmon ends at the tip of the beard which is above this point; therefore, while the light of the nose is in touch with the light of the ears, the light of the mouth is removed one step. When Adam Kadmon looked out with his eyes upon the lower seven vessels of the Nikudim, they could only see the light of the mouth. The light of the ears, however, was blocked from their sight. This lack of vision is what caused the vessels to emanate improperly, and this improper emanation is what caused the shattering.
Now, most likely, you really are going to have to listen to message #560 because I preached a whole message on that paragraph which I am not going to repeat, but if you don't want to listen to that message you can at least look at the drawings, drawing #1 and drawing #2, which shows you the lights coming out of Adam Kadmon's ears, nose, and mouth.
The last sentence of the paragraph I just read says that this lack of vision is what caused the vessels to emanate improperly, and this improper emanation is what caused the shattering. I agree it is the improper emanation that caused the shattering. What was improper about the emanation? The inner light did not weaken itself in relation to the vessels of the light that came out of the eyes. That was the improper emanation. I think I am going to have to put that on the board for you, but let me talk about drawing #1, and I'm going to have to put that on the board for you. I see it is too difficult for you to envision.
Drawing #1, I've split the board in two. The left side of the board shows the spiritual male organ, and the Sefirot are lined up in three columns, Binah, Gevurah, Hod on the left, Chokhmah, Chesed, Netzach on the right, and Keter, Tiferet and Yesod in the middle. This is the male configuration, and we see this male configuration manifested in the physical male in our world today, a male organ, and a left and right testes. That is the male genitalia in the human male today, and that is an expression....the human male genitalia is an expression of this World of Action of the male configuration of the Sefirot in the highest realm of existence.
This configuration produces only sons. There is even a Scripture, the King James Version, that says, and all your children will be male. Now in this world humanity would cease to exist if there were no females, but, you see, in the Kingdom of God there is no marriage or giving in marriage. The being are not born from a human, mammalian body in the Kingdom of God. I don't even know if there will be reproduction in the Kingdom of God. I honestly don't know. We know that God is a never ending kingdom, this age is an age without end, so if God is infinite, I guess it is possible to have reproduction in the Kingdom of God because God is infinite. We will just increase and increase, if that is the plan, I don't know.
Reproduction will not be in the way animals reproduce. We will not be in physical bodies. So the males will be reproducing, because every being in the Kingdom of God will be both male and female. What form will the reproduction take? I don't know. There are several forms of spiritual reproduction - cell division, sweat born, budding. Budding is when another entity just comes out of your side, just like a plant would bring forth a bud. One day you are looking at the trunk of the plant, and there is a bud on it. It just comes out of your side. Sweat born is when somehow the entity.....because I don't know what we are going to look like when we come out of our body. I don't know what kinds of beings we are going to be. Sweat born is when you have the ability to just bring forth beads of life, as if you would sweat, they would just forth on your body, separate and be individual beings. Yes, there is much more than this world, many, many different ways.
Of course, we know when Jesus sweated blood in the Garden that the spiritual translation of that Scripture is something like that, that he was reproducing on some level. He was not sweating because He was afraid. Brethren, Jesus Christ in the Garden was God. God is not afraid. The Scripture says that He prayed with an agony of mind, and I have a message on that. I believe the way the revelation came forth at the time that I preached that message was that, that agony of mind resulted in His reproductive emanation appearing in the mental plane. I wasn't in Kabbalah at that time, and I called it the mental plane. Those beads of blood that came out of Him, that was His spiritual semen that went forth into the higher planes of consciousness and does not the Scripture say, and He ascended so that He could pour out of His spirit on all flesh?
Something along that line happened when He was still in His flesh, and then He was crucified and raised from the dead and ascended. I don't have the details of what the difference was between what happened when He was in the flesh and what happened after the crucifixion. At this moment, I don't have the difference, and I don't think I ever asked the Lord that question, but I will ask Him now. When did He pour out of His flesh? Did He pour it out when He was down here or after He ascended?
So we are all sweat born you see. All of us that have Christ grafted to us, we are the product of Jesus Christ's sweat born reproduction. How do you like that all of you religious people out there that are now screaming and yelling and tearing up the transcript that you are reading? Praise the Lord. The truth will set you free.
On the right side of the board, we see the sterile male organ which is the female configuration of the Sefirot. We see that Keter, Binah, and Chokhmah are in their right place, but we have Da'at, Chesed, Gevurah, Tiferet, Netzach, Hod, and Yesod all lined up in a straight line. They are not in left and right columns. They are all lined up. I really don't want to get too graphic on this message, but if you don't know that the female human body does have an organ that is comparable to the male penis, then go ask your doctor or look it up in your dictionary or encyclopedia or something. I'm not going to get into that on this message.
There is a point in the development of the human fetus where that fetus has not yet developed as either a male or a female. So the root of that which comes forth as the male organ is present whether that fetus comes forth as a male or a female. If the hormones go forth to make that fetus into a male, that root develops into a male organ which is called a penis. If that fetus comes forth as a female, that root is still there and develops but does not develop into a male organ, but it is there, and it is in the human female anatomy.
So we see, spiritually speaking, in the female configuration of the Sefirot that there is also a male organ, and there is, instead of a left testes, there is a left ovary, and there is a right ovary, and that male organ which comes from the female configuration is sterile. Now in this world, if you are sterile concerning the physical body, you cannot produce any children at all. But spiritually speaking, you can produce female children if you are sterile. You cannot produce sons, you see. So the male organ of the female is called a eunuch which means she can function like a male, but her seed produces only females. She cannot generate a son, and in spiritual circles, in spiritual philosophy, to be female is equivalent to being mortal. To be male is the equivalent of being immortal. So the female can only produce a daughter. That means the female can only produce a mortal world which is what we are. We are the product and the expression of the female World of Points, and that is why we die and that's why we are mortal, because there is no man here. There is no spiritual man.
Now, those of us that have some understanding, we understand that this spiritual man has to be grafted to our spiritual parts. He's grafted in seed form. It is called the seed of Christ. It is the humble seed that James was talking about. He said to receive that grafted Word with humility, and that seed has the opportunity to become an embryo, a spiritual embryo, and eventually a spiritual fetus and grow up to be a full grown spiritual man who will live inside of us. This is the child that will save us in childbearing.
Brethren, if having a physical child will save you, what about all the millions and trillions across the world that have born physical children and are not saved. Come on up higher, open your mind. That doesn't make any sense at all. The child is spiritual. In the Book of Acts the apostles go forth saying, now Lord anoint us to heal by Thy Holy Child. They were talking about the Holy Child in the midst of them. Jesus was resurrected in the apostles and had Christ grafted to them. It is the Holy Child in the midst that does all the works. His name is Christ, and He rose up to be Christ Jesus in you.
So once you have this son in the midst of you, you have the hope of immortality, and that is the hope that Paul was talking about, Christ in you the hope of your glorification or the hope of immortality. This body is not supposed to die.
Are there any questions about what is on the board here? Let me remind you that the lesson that we are studying, this is from the rabbi that we are taking this course with. Of course, he is teaching Kabbalah, he's teaching classic Lurianic Kabbalah. This is Isaac Luria's teaching as recorded by Chayyim Vital, Isaac Luria's student.
Now the teaching is that the vessel shattered. That is just another way of saying that the creation fell, that the reason the creation fell was because the World of Points came forth in the female configuration rather than in the male configuration, and this teaching tells us that it was God's will. As I explained to you in message #560, well if the light looked out of Adam Kadmon's eyes and could not see properly, well how could that light possibly have lined up in three columns if it could not see because the light of the ears, nose, and the mouth was in its way or however the explanation goes. It sounds good except that it is not true because Almighty God did not have to bring forth the creation that is imperfect that He could perfect them.
Of course, the teaching of Kabbalah is that God brought forth an imperfect creation so we could have the job of rectifying the world to God. I really don't mean to be disrespectful, but that is just ridiculous. I'm sorry if I'm hurting anyone's feelings. That is just ridiculous that Almighty God has to bring forth men and women in a world where they are going to suffer and be raped and tortured and bombed and born deformed and lose legs and go insane and be drug addicts so that a group of people can perfect this world. That's crazy. That's what the God of this world does, that's what Satan does. Almighty God does not do that, He does not have to do that.
Almighty God has the ability to do what cannot be done down in this world. In this world, there is no way you could pass on to your children all that you have become through overcoming experiences. Everyone has to have their own overcoming experiences, because we are already fallen. But if we did not fall, Almighty God has the ability to make us all that He wanted us to be without becoming subject to evil.
Listen, fallen man is maturing and will ultimately be perfected....of course, we are perfected through union with God, but there is a process that prepares us for that union, which process involves overcoming evil. This process involves overcoming what Kabbalah calls the evil inclination within you. But Adam was already over his evil inclination. That evil inclination was under foot, and Adam Kadmon was full well able to perfect the creation without subjecting that creation to evil. See what happened when the creation fell was the creation already had dominion over evil, became subject to that evil, and as the Lord taught us a year or so ago when He was still bringing forth the Doctrine of Christ here, Adam is called to rule over the whole creation, and there are many layers of this creation, there are many worlds of this creation, and there are entities, conscious entities, in all of these worlds. Adam is called to rule over all of them, and many of them are evil.
So, as any king, Adam had to be trained up to understand these evil entities and to deal with them. It was not God's will that he should learn these lessons by being made subject to them. Does anyone not know what I'm talking about? Maybe in this fallen world, it is the only way to learn, but that was not true in God's Kingdom. Praise the Lord. So the reason the creation fell was rebellion. The vessels shattered because of sin. Praise the Lord. That is the truth. Any questions on this board?
Let me just say this. On the left with the configuration which is the male configuration, the principle there of the three columns is that when the Sefirot are across from one another they can react with one another and restrict one another, because the vessels on the left are hard and harsh, all evil comes from the left, and the vessels on the right are the mercies and the positive vessels, and they are constantly interacting with one another. Now, Tiferet represents the perfect balance between Chesed and Gevurah. That's why Tiferet is in the middle.
So Keter, Tiferet, and Yesod are the male and really the perfected male organ. Everything in that center column is completely balanced. That means that the left and the right column are in perfect order, and this is the perfect peace that Jesus has promised us. The only way that anyone of us is going to have peace, and certainly the world having peace, the world will have peace when the peace is in the people, and the only way the people are going to have peace is when our spiritual and our mental and intellectual principles are perfectly balanced in the individual. When that happens to every individual, the world will be at peace, and the only way that can happen is if Christ Jesus is living through every individual. So if the promise of the Scripture is perfect peace to the world, that means the whole world has to be filled with Christ Jesus which is what will happen and is already happening.
The female configuration according to the Kabbalists, that vessel represented by Da'at, Chesed, Gevurah, Tiferet, Netzach, Hod, and Yesod could not contain the light that poured into them because it was too heavy for them, and I explained this all on message #560, that the light dumped on that straight column and they could not handle the light, so the vessel shattered. But as the Lord revealed in message #560, The Shattering of the Vessels, that was not the reason for the shattering. The reason for the shattering was that the light of the eyes acted like the male instead of the female. I'm going to put this on the board for you next. Is everyone OK with this drawing? I'll show you the other drawings.
Drawing #2, on the left side of the board, I show you God's blueprint for The World of Points. On the right side of the board I show you what happened as a result of rebellion. So on the left side of the board we see....now you may recall, look at the drawings from message #560, if you look at drawing #3, you will see that The World of Points appears as the planet Saturn with a globe in the center and rings around it. Now the inside of The World of Points is the globe in the center, and you may recall that, that inside is Adam Kadmon's ovary, and the rings that are the outer side of The World of Points is the light that came from out of Adam Kadmon's eyes.
Just to reminded you, the seedlings of Adam Kadmon's ovary are simple light. They are simple elements of BaN and MaH that never emerged from inside of Adam Kadmon to the outside of Adam Kadmon. The light of the eyes which formed The World of Points is not simple light. That is light that is born from the union of AB and SaG. So there is wisdom present in the light of the eyes, and the simple MaH and BaN on the inside of Adam Kadmon are naive and lacking wisdom, lacking knowledge. They are just like infants in our world, they are totally undefended, no power at all against an adult seductress coming after a child.
What I have on the board for you in drawing #2 is just the rings of the light of the eyes which forms the outside of The World of Points. Now on the left side....well, let me tell you this, the outer layer shows the vessels that comes from the light of the eyes, and the inner layer shows the inner light of Adam Kadmon's eyes, and the inner light always fills the vessel. I'll read you what else I have there. In each pair of Sefirot, each pair meaning a vessel and the inner light, the Sefirot of the inner light is weaker than the Sefirot of the vessel. See, I have Keter of the vessel is filled with Chokhmah on the inner light. So Chokhmah is weaker than Keter. The further the light gets away from its source, the weaker that it gets. So as we go down the line, Keter, Chokhmah, Binah the light of each vessel is weaker than the light of the vessel above it. So Keter is filled with Chokhmah, Chokhmah is filled with Binah, Binah is filled with Chesed. So the inner light is weaker than the vessel, and this is according to God's blueprint.
See when a human being is born, genes are at work, and genes are the blueprint for what the baby is going to be like. The genes in the embryo and in the fetus, and the genes in the sperm and the egg are literally a blueprint as to what that human being that comes forth is going to be like, what color its hair will be, what color its eyes will be, whether it will be male or female, smart or not so smart, talented or not so talented. All that is in the genes. There are spiritual genes. I call it God's blueprint. This is what The World of Points was supposed to look like. The vessel was supposed to be stronger in each pair of inner light. In each Sefirotic pair the vessel was supposed to be stronger than the inner light, and the purpose for that was when the vessel is stronger, and I will show you this in more detail on the next drawing. When the vessel is stronger, it is able to hold on to the inner light.
Now that didn't come to pass. What came to pass was what you see on the right side of the board. The inner light which, remember, was a conscious entity. These lights that we read about in Kabbalah are conscious entities. These vessel are appearing in the The World of Action as us. We are the physical or the visible, we are physical, but we are not supposed to be physical. The visible manifestation of the vessels of The World of Points is us, and this is the explanation of why the nature that we are born with is rebellious, because we are the visible manifestation of what happened in the highest realm of the spirit, and it just worked its way down to us. So we are in the image of our father who is in heaven, and our father of this rebellious human race is the inner light of the inner part or the inner light of the light that came out of Adam Kadmon's eyes which was supposed to be in submission to the light of Adam Kadmon's forehead, but that light which is a conscious entity rebelled and.....let me go back to the left side of the board for a minute.
The way this happened, that the Sefirotic vessel called Keter of The World of Points contained the inner light of Chokhmah, the way that happened was that the Keter of the inner light was supposed to be retained. It was not supposed to come forth into the vessel. If you look at the inner row, you will see that there is no Keter in the inner row. The first Sefirot to come forth of the inner light was Chokhmah and it, therefore, lines up with Keter. The way the Sefirot of the inner light became misaligned with the Sefirot of the vessel is that Keter was supposed to have not come forth. Keter was supposed to have remained inside of Adam Kadmon's head. And this is how Malkhut went into darkness. Now, Malkhut represents the visible world, and because one Sefirot was held in the way it was supposed to be, the Sefirot of the inner light of Keter would have been withheld within Adam Kadmon's head. That means only nine and not ten Sefirot if inner light came forth. These ten Sefirot of the vessel and only nine Sefirot of the inner light came forth, so there was no vessel of the inner light to fill Malkhut. Does anybody not understand that?
That's why Malkhut, which is our world and also represents each individual one of us, is in darkness, and our light is Jesus Christ. That's why this whole world is in darkness because in the highest realm of the spirit, Malkhut was not even supposed to be filled even if things went according to the righteous plan.
Now on the right side of the board, we see that the Keter of the inner light was not restrained or with held within Adam Kadmon's forehead. It came forth when it was not supposed to come forth. There is your rebellion right there. So the Sefirot of the inner light are lined up with the Sefirot of the vessel, and there is no third line, so we see that in the case of the right side of the board, in the case of the rebellion, the inner light that came forth that lines up with the Sefirot of the inner light that lines up with the Sefirot of the vessel was just as strong as the Sefirot of the vessel; therefore, there was no restraint on the inner light. It didn't stay in its place. It just poured out into the center.
I think I forgot to tell you that on the left side of the board, this empty space....see, this vessel is a cup. I'm going to have to do this on another drawing. Let me just try and explain this to you. You see this glass of water. It is red on the outside and it is white on the inside. The cup has an inside and an outside. Looking at the left side of the board, the inner light is the inside of the vessel, but it is still a vessel with a big empty space that is supposed to be filled. Let me say it again. The inner light of the vessel is not designed to fill the vessel. It is just the inside of the cup. So we can look at this vessel as a cup, and it has an outside, and it has an inside but there is still room for it to be filled. What was supposed to fill this cup was the light that comes from Adam Kadmon's forehead which is the male light which has authority over the light that comes from the eyes.
On the right side of the board, we see that the inner light that came forth into the outside of the vessel did not restrain itself so that it would be the inside of the vessel. The inner light that came forth did not remain as the inside of the vessel. It poured out into the....it filled the cup. It filled the cup instead of being the inside of the vessel, it filled the cup, and now for the light of Adam Kadmon's eyes which is appearing to us today as Christ Jesus, to fill the cup He first has to empty out the light of the eyes that is there in the power and the strength of witchcraft, because rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and this is exactly what's happening today. This world and each individual of the human race is filled with the light that's supposed to be restricted to the inside of the vessel. We are all filled up with....and this light is darkness. Jesus said, sorry I can't remember the exact Scripture so I'm going to improvise, Ye must confess your sins, be careful that your light does not become darkness. So this light that is supposed to be the inside of the vessel or the inner lining of the vessel that's filling the whole human race is darkness.
Now when I first started studying Kabbalah, I read that darkness is a grade of light, and I had a problem with that at the beginning, but I'm comfortable with it now. Light comes in grades. We know that the light of Adam Kadmon is blindingly beyond my ability to understand it. That's the light that shown out from Jesus on the Mount of Transfiguration. Blindingly white light, and as it descends it gets less bright and less bright and less bright, and there is a grade of light that is called darkness, but it is still light because light refers to substance. Light doesn't only refer to that which you see. It refers to substance, so the quality or the characteristic of the substance of what we call darkness is light. Darkness is made out of light, if you can hear that. It is light degraded to such a point that it becomes darkness, but its substance is still called light. That's what it came out of. Is everybody OK?
So here we are today filled with darkness, and our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, has come, and before He can save us He has to empty out the darkness that's in us. That's one of the things that we are doing in this ministry. The darkness is in the form of a mind, our carnal mind is the darkness in the midst of us, and He's cleansing us from this darkness through understanding, and if you recall on message #560, The Shattering of the Vessels, one of the major points was that the light that came out of the ears was Keter and Binah and Chokhmah that didn't fall. OK, it was only the Sefirot under that, that fell, and those upper Sefirot came out of the ears had understanding. The light that came out of the nose had emotional understanding. The light that came out of the ears had intellectual understanding, the light that came out of Adam Kadmon's nose had emotional understanding or discernment, but it was the light that came out of the mouth which is the Nefesh, the animal nature, that had neither intellectual understanding nor discernment or emotional understanding, and it was those Sefirot that went into rebellion.
This is exactly what the Lord is dealing with today through teaching you spiritual principles so that you should have all the understanding that you need not to fall into rebellion. See, it has to be your choice to not rebel, because if obedience is forced upon you then you do not have the nature of Jesus Christ, and the only way you will enter into eternal life or return unto eternal life is to have the nature of Jesus Christ. Right now, everyone here and everyone that's reading these transcripts or listening to these tapes are likened to the light that came out of Adam Kadmon's mouth that has neither spiritual understanding nor emotional understanding which is discernment. And the Lord has sent me to raise your consciousness, to teach you spiritual truth so that you should have what you are lacking, intellectual understanding and emotional understanding so that you should choose to be obedient to God so that you might return unto eternal life.
He is not going to force you back into eternal life. It has to be your choice after you are educated. You see, if you choose to not go on to eternal life, without this education your choice doesn't count. The people out there that are killing themselves, they say "I want to die." The Lord is ignoring them, their mind is corrupt, they don't know what they are talking about. So He is educating you, and when you are educated you choose, and if you choose life He's imparts His spirit to you to give you the power to do it, and that's what my job is, to raise your consciousness, not to force you to do anything. Your heart has to change, you have to want it, and you are going to want it when I succeed at my job of convincing you of the righteousness of Jesus Christ and the righteousness of the whole way that He thinks. The reason I can be so positive to say that I will convince you is because I know that Jesus Christ has sent me; therefore, I have to convince you. I must succeed at my mission, you see, because God never fails.
I'm reading on the right side of the board now. The rebellion that caused the fall is also called the shattering of the vessels. The inner light of the rebellious World of Points refused to restrict itself or restrain itself or weaken itself and flooded into the cup and filled the whole center of The World of Points leaving no room for the male light of Adam Kadmon's forehead. Now, the light that fills the center of the outside of The World of Points, the light that fills the center of the outside or the rim of The World of Points covers the seeds of Adam Kadmon's ovary which is the inside of The World of Points, and this covering implies fertilization. So we see how the light from the eyes which we call the daughter in our series The World of Points and the Fall flooded over like semen flooded over Adam Kadmon's ovary and fertilized those seeds. Praise the Lord.
The woman was wholly seduced. She really didn't stand a chance, and remember the seedlings of both male and female, the male in the middle of the female, that was why the Serpent....once the light of Adam Kadmon's eyes rebelled, that light became the Serpent. So the Serpent spoke to the woman because the woman was on the outside of the seed. An instruction was given to the man, don't eat of the tree of the Garden, but the man was too week in his seedling state to really do anything from that point of view. But from another point of view, remember the light that was coming out of the eyes of Adam Kadmon was male, was MaH , and MaH is Ze'ir Anpin. Ze'ir Anpin is Adam. Remember, Adam is in two different forms. Adam is the seedling and Adam is also the male light. Praise the Lord.
So who rebelled? Was it really the woman who rebelled? Or was it the man who rebelled? I keep going round and round, I see it from all different points.
The Scripture says that it was the Serpent that rebelled, the woman was wholly seduced, and the man was tricked. So it was a male emanation that came forth from Adam Kadmon's eyes, but there was an evil inclination built into this emanation which tricked the male. See, that light coming forth from Adam Kadmon's eyes was programmed to be the inside of the cup. The inner light was supposed to be the inside of the cup, but that evil inclination that was in there, somehow tricked that male light coming forth, and I don't have any more information on that right now, why he was tricked. We have some revelation on that in the Doctrine of Christ, but coming from this Kabbalistic point of view I don't have anything more to say about it right now. I don't know how to bring it forth from Kabbalah, and I don't know whether the Lord wants to add anything to what He taught us in the Doctrine of Christ. I don't have that revelation right now.
So the Serpent rebelled. That was the evil inclination in the male light coming forth from Adam Kadmon's eyes, rebelled. The male aspect of that light coming forth was somehow tricked by the Serpent, did not restrain that rebellion. How was the male tricked? The male was supposed to restrain himself. He was supposed to withhold the Keter inside of Adam Kadmon's head, but somehow the male was tricked into not doing that. So the Serpent, the evil inclination, came forth and rebelled and the woman who was in Adam Kadmon's ovary was completely overcome. So I don't know about you, but I still feel that I don't have the whole story, that there is more revelation coming forth. Any questions or comments on this board?
I have some Scriptures from the New Testament here, and we are going to read the Scripture one at a time, and we will decide which side of the board it applies to. The side of the board which shows the cup that is the vessel according to God's blueprint or the right side of the board which shows the cup that filled itself. Now before we start, the Lord is telling me that I didn't explain this fully to you.
This vessel inside and outside of the vessel that we were just talking about on drawing #2 is really a cup. It is the cup that the Scripture talks about. I think I didn't make it clear earlier, but what we showed you n drawing #2 has become a cup in drawing #3. Now remember that the whole of Malkhut is a cup. This whole visible world is a cup that is supposed to contain the emanations of God, but it isn't. We are filled with darkness, and each one of us is an expression of Malkhut that is supposed to be filled with overflowing with the emanations of God, but we are filled with darkness, you see. So we now see the spiritual foundation of our vessel. We are a vessel, we are a cup, and this is what you see on the board is what we look like on a higher plane of consciousness. Is there any confusion about this? Any questions about it? You want me to explain anything again?
We have an inside and an outside. When you look at me, you see my outside, but I have an inside. It is filled with organs and blood and all kinds of tissue. I look completely different on the inside than on the outside, and yet in the deepest spiritual recesses of my being Christ Jesus is filling me. He's filling this cup that has an inside and an outside. Is everybody OK?
So we see that the cup that's filled with the light that comes from Adam Kadmon's forehead is the cup of God's wrath. It is also the cup of salvation, and we are going to go through a few Scriptures, and I'm going to write that on the board. The cup on the right that's filled with the light that's supposed to be restrained, with the light that's supposed to be a part of the rim, that is the cup of abomination filled with filthy things and the blood of the saints.
What I also didn't explain to you earlier, if you look at the left side of the board, when the Sefirot of the inner light are misaligned with the Sefirot of the vessel, the vessel is now stronger than the inner light and has the power to hold back the inner light, sort of like gravity. When the outer rim, when the vessel of the outer rim or the Sefirot of the vessel of the outer rim, over here it is Keter, is stronger than the vessel of the inner light that it is paired with, a sort of spiritual gravity is in place, and the outer rim holds on to the inner light of the inner rim. Are you following me? Anybody not following me?
We see on the right side here that when the Sefirot of the outside of the vessel is the same strength as the Sefirot of the inside of the vessel, the outer rim does not have the power to hold back the Sefirot of the inner light, and that was when the inner light went pouring into the center of the vessel which is where the male is supposed to be. Everybody OK?
Let's read some of these Scriptures, and I'm just going to write the Scripture on the board, and I will write down whether it is the cup of God's wrath, and I have not done an exhaustive search, but I've picked out some Scriptures that talk about the different cups that we see in the Bible, in the Scripture.
Psalm 23:5: Thou prepares a table before me in the presence of my enemies, Thou anoints my head with oil, my cup runs over. I'm going to put that down as the cup of blessing. We see that the cup of blessing refers to the cup where the Sefirot of the outside of the cup and the Sefirot of the inside of the cup are misaligned so that the Sefirot of the vessel has the power to restrain the light of the Sefirot of the inside of the cup.
What I'm really telling you is that this cup that I have here that's red on the outside and white on the inside, in the spirit the inside of the cup has the power to run away from the outside of the cup. Referring to our humanity as being cups, it is like saying that my inner organs have the power to separate from my skin, and in the natural this is not possible, but in the spirit it is possible because that's what happened and we died. It is just like saying that our inner physical organs, our physical blood, flowed into the spiritual plane. You know what the Lord just said to me? "That's exactly what happens when your carnal mind flows into the spiritual plane. It kills Christ Jesus."
When we do not restrain our carnal mind which is the inner light that's supposed to be weaker, when we do not restrain our carnal mind, or we could say when we do not restrain our evil inclination, that carnal mind or that evil inclination flows into the higher planes of the spirit where Christ Jesus is or is supposed to be, and if He is there kills Him. This is one of the things I've been trying to teach you for a long time, and I will keep saying it until you get it. It is your and my responsibility to recognize Satan's thoughts when she enters into our mind with her thoughts, recognize it for what it is and destroy that thought. Don't repress it, don't say, "oh my God, I'm a Christian, how could I be thinking that," and push it away. You have to face it head on. "I just saw you Satan, you are sin in my mind, and I rebuke you, and I curse you, and I burn you with fire." Those words will not work, they will have no value for you at all unless you recognize that this is sin in your mind, and that it is your sin. OK, but now you are Christ, and you are at war with this other side of yourself.
If you think it is Satan outside of you, no matter what words you pray won't help you. If you curse it and rebuke it, but you are not admitting that it is sin in your mind, it is not going to do it. She is going to live, and you have to kill her, because this is your house. You are Christ, this is your house, your body, your personality, your mind, your life, and in Christ Jesus you have the power to overcome Satan if you won't faint, but you will never overcome her if you do not admit that there are thoughts in your mind that are sin, that are now rising into your mind without your permission. She is a squatter in your house, but if your pride is in the way, and you can't face that it is sin in you, you will not be able to stop her. Confession and repentance is the strongest weapon you have at this stage of your walk with God. I tell you the truth.
Psalm 116:13: I will take the cup of salvation and call upon the name of the Lord. Praise the Lord. Psalm 116:13 is the cup of salvation. So we now know what the cup of salvation is. See, everything that we read in the Scripture has a spiritual reality. In our world, there is no such thing as a cup of salvation so we think that it is, there is a word that I can't think of at the moment, but it is a word that signifies some....I think I'm tired. OK, it is a word that has a meaning that there is no real physical expression of. It is the end of the day, I just can't think of an example right now. But the cup of salvation, there is no such thing as a cup of salvation in this world, but in the spiritual world there is a cup of salvation, and here it is. Who is the cup of salvation? What human being is the cup of salvation? What human being contains the salvation of God?
COMMENT: The Lord Jesus.
PASTOR VITALE: Yes, Jesus Christ. He is the cup of salvation, He is the Malkhut, cup is Malkhut, He is the cup, He is the vessel whose inner rim is restrained and who is, therefore, filled with the light that comes from Adam Kadmon's eyes, and we are called to the same testimony, but right now we are not on the left side of the board. It is the right side of the board that describes us now, we are filled with the part of the cup that's supposed to be the rim. We are filled with darkness, but Jesus Christ is the cup of salvation, but each one of us is called, invited, to have the same testimony, be filled up with the righteousness of God.
Isaiah 51:22: Thus says your Lord, the Lord and your God, that pleads the cause of His people. Behold, I have taken out of your hand the cup of trembling, even the dregs of the cup of My fury; you shall no longer drink it again.
This is the same cup that's on the left side of the board, but it is when that cup is pronounced in judgment, you see. The cup of salvation, and the cup of blessing is when that vessel that fills up with the life of God comes to you offering blessings and salvation, but when your carnal mind comes under judgment that same cup becomes the cup that makes you tremble, it makes you afraid. The judgment of your carnal mind makes you afraid. So we see that same cup....actually the trembling is a blessing. OK, that same cup that's a blessing will make us tremble, and that same cup is the cup of God's wrath.
At this point, I don't think I picked out that Scripture, but there is a Scripture in the Book of Revelation that says that the temple of God was filled up with the wrath of God. Now we are the temple, human beings are the temple, the Sons of God are the temple, and when we are filled up with the life of God we will be filled up with the wrath of God, but God's wrath is against the carnal mind. God's wrath is against sin. He wants to destroy and utterly wipe out every vestige of sin in you, but He does not want to destroy you. Everybody got that straight? The wrath of God is against sin. The human race is enslaved, we are captured, He has come to save us, to deliver us, to set us free, but our captives are in our own mind. So He has come to destroy our mind after He gives us a new righteous mind so that we can live forever with Him.
Jeremiah 25:17:Then I took the cup from the Lord's hand, and made all the nations drink, to whom the Lord had sent me.
I'm not going to put that one up on the board because that Scripture does not qualify the word "cup," but it is referring to the cup of trembling. Jeremiah took that cup of judgment to all the nations. Remember, judgment that comes from God is designed to liberate you and to bless you. It is never pleasant while you are experiencing it, but the fruit of the judgment of God is glorious and worth all your discomfort, because your discomfort is only for a season, and the glory that you will reap from submitting to that judgment is eternal. If for any reason you don't enter into eternal life in this lifetime, it will go on to your children and your grandchildren and our great grandchildren which are really you.
Jeremiah 51:7: Babylon was a golden cup in the Lord's hand, that made all the earth drunk, the nations drank her wine; therefore the nations are deranged.
So we see that Babylon is a golden cup. Why would she be golden? Because gold signifies God, because the outside rim of the cup is still the substance of God. This whole world and all of humanity are made of the substance of God, but she has made the whole world drunken because the cup is filled with abominable substance. Praise the Lord.
This cup of gold that makes drunken, that goes on the right side of the board. This is the cup that's filled with darkness. This is the cup that is not filled with the light that comes from Adam Kadmon's forehead. This is the cup that's filled with the light that comes from Adam Kadmon's eyes, and the light that comes from Adam Kadmon's eyes is the cup, the outside and the inside of the actual cup. The light that fills the cup, the light that is supposed to fill the cup is the light that comes from Adam Kadmon's forehead, the male light.
Habakkuk 2:16: You are filled with shame instead of glory. You also-drink! And be exposed as uncircumcised! The cup of the Lord's right hand will be turned against you, and utter shame will be on your glory.
Habakkuk 2:16 goes on the left side of the board. I will call it the cup of the right hand that brings judgment. This is the cup of judgment. The Lord says let your foreskin be uncovered. That means that let that which is underneath be revealed. This is talking about letting the male come forth. This is talking about the judgment that will produce the son in the person's life. And who is the Lord's right hand? Remember the right hand is the side that mercy comes from, so we also see suggested in this Scripture that judgment is merciful and, of course, the angel of the Lord's right hand we know Him as the Lord Jesus Christ. In the Old Testament He was Elijah. Elijah was the one who executed judgment.
Zechariah 12:2: Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people around about, when they shall lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem.
Zechariah 12:2, a cup of trembling. It is looking at this point that the majority of references to the cup has to do with judgment. We have one cup of blessing, one cup of salvation, two cups of trembling, and the cup of the Lord's right hand which is judgment. Judgment with mercy, judgment that is not unto destruction. Kabbalah would call that HaRachamim. So we have three references to judgment and two references to blessing. The cup of God's blessing.
We are going into the New Testament now, and the next Scripture is Matthew 23:26.
Matthew 23:26: Thou blind Pharisees, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.
We always thought that Jesus was just referring to thee Pharisees as a cup and a platter. It was just like a parable. He was relating to them as being a cup, but here we see the very deep spiritual significance which is the foundation for what Jesus was saying to them. See, these Pharisees knew Kabbalah, so they knew they were Malkhut. They knew exactly what He was talking about when He talked about their cup. Isn't that interesting?
1 Corinthians 11:25: After the same manner also He took the cup when He had supped, saying, this sup is the New Testament in my blood. This do ye as oft as you drink it in remembrance of me.
So we see that we have the cup of the New Testament which goes on the left side of the board, and what Jesus is saying to his disciples is that you, all of you, and that's all of us too whose spiritual confirmation is one that we see on the right side of the board, I give you the cup of the New Testament which means you are going to be emptied out of that spiritual filth, and you are going to be filled up with my life, with my male life. That's 1 Corinthians 11:25, and we put it on the left side of the board.
Revelation 14:10: The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of indignation, and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb.
Well, that is an interesting Scripture. The cup of His indignation, and he shall be tormented. Now that Greek word that's translated torment doesn't mean torment as we know torment. What it means in Greek is to be driven down underneath. So what that's saying is that the cup of God in this instance will be driving Satan down underneath Christ in you, Satan and Leviathan, this is a promise that your carnal mind will be driven down underneath Christ in you.
The holy angels, Christ in you makes you an angel. If Christ Jesus is living through you, you are an angel. So this Scripture Revelation 14:10 means that Satan and Leviathan or Satan is going to be driven down underneath Christ in you, and there are going to be witnesses. The saints and Sons of God that are ministering to you are going to be present. The Lamb is Christ Jesus in the midst of you, so that means that every Son of God who experiences the driving of their carnal mind down under Christ will not be going through this alone. There are going to be other believers going through it with you who will witness to the fact that you are truly ascending in Christ as Satan is formed down underneath Christ. So we are putting that on the left side of the board, and it is one of the great promises of the Scripture.
Revelation 16:19: And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell and a great battle came into remembrance before God to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath.
I put this on the right side of the board because we are out of room on the left side of the board, but also I put it on the right side of the board because this city, this cup that we see is going to be divided into three parts. What are the three parts? The outside of the rim, the inside of the rim, and the substance that fills the cup. Of course, the whole implication of the Scripture is that this cup is going to be cleansed and come under the dominion of the light from Adam Kadmon's forehead which is the light of Christ Jesus. Is everybody OK?
Luke 22:42-44: Saying, "Father, if it is Your will, remove this cup from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done. 43: And there appeared an angel unto Him from heaven strengthening Him. 44: And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly, and His sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.
Well, here is our answer to this mysterious Scripture that I even mentioned earlier on this message. Jesus was saying to the Father, "Let this cup of my fallen humanity pass from me, but if it is not the right time Lord, nevertheless your will, not mine." He was not talking about the crucifixion. He was talking about His fallen humanity, about his carnal mind, and then an angel strengthened Him. That was the Christ in the midst of Him, and these great drops of blood appeared on Him. He shed the abomination that was in the midst of His cup. Does anybody not understand what I just said?
Let me say this again. The whole church world thinks that Jesus....you see, people have a tendency to pull you down to where they are, because they are incapable of going up where you are. So the whole church world would be terrified of being crucified, so they have drawn the conclusion that Jesus was asking the Father for permission to not experience the cross, but there is nothing in the Bible that says that. And now that we find out what the cup is, and we know that Jesus was born with the carnal mind from His mother, that He received from His mother, yet Jesus overcame that carnal mind and held it in submission the whole time of the days of His flesh, but that is hard work, that's stressful keeping sin under foot.
So Jesus was saying to the Father, "Lord, I've held this carnal mind under foot all this time, is it possible that you will deliver me, rid me of this carnal mind?" He said, "But if you are not willing to do it, nevertheless your will, not mine. It is like Paul saying, "Take this throne out of my side, Lord," and the Lord said, "My grace is sufficient for you." But to Jesus, the next Scripture says, "and there was an angel strengthening Him." Christ in the midst of Jesus strengthened Him, and the next thing we hear is great agony, which Greek word can mean agony of mind. With a great effort of mind, Jesus expelled the spiritual filth of His carnal mind, and it appeared as great drops of blood being shed from within Him. Isn't that amazing?
The whole church world brought Jesus down to their own level, and we know that we had the revelation a couple of years ago that Jesus did not feel pain on the cross. He was highly ascended, and now we find out that His carnal mind was eliminated from Him, but even if we believe that He still had His carnal mind, we knew Satan was down in the pit, and only Christ Jesus was living through Him. There was no way He could have felt that pain in such an ascended state of mind. Now, we find out that He didn't even have His carnal mind any more. It was eliminated from Him in the flesh in preparation for His trial.
So that is very exciting to me. Every time an error that is so common in the church is explained to us, it just excites me so much, and I never, as much as God has given me revelation in these areas, it never occurred to me to say before that the church world and me following after the church world has assumed that, that Scripture is about the cross. It does not say anything about the crucifixion. He's talking about a cup passing from Him, and the cup on the right side of the board is the cup that He wanted to pass from Him. Isn't that exciting? That really is a blessing to me.
We have two more Scriptures here, but I am not going to another tape tonight, so if we are cut off in the middle forgive us.
Revelation 17:4: And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication.
Well, once again, we see the cup of abominations. It is talking about the vessel that's filled with the inner light of the vessel which is female rather than the male light that comes from Adam Kadmon's forehead.
Revelation 18:6: Render to her just as she rendered to you, and repay her double according to her works; in the cup which she has mixed, mix for her double.
And the filling her with double means that she is going to be filled with the light that comes from Adam Kadmon's forehead. First she was filled with the light that came from the eyes which is going to get a double portion. She is going to get both, even though she filled herself with the light from the eyes which was illegal, she is going to get the double portion. She is going to be filled, despite that, with the light that comes from Adam Kadmon's forehead, the salvation of the whole human race and the salvation of the world. God bless you all. Good night.
