Praise the Lord we are picking up with lesson 7 of our on line course. Now it's been a long time since I have preached on this particular message which is going through this on line course, and the reason is that I hit a point in lesson 7 that I simply could not understand. So I have waited it out, it's about three months, and the Lord has given me understanding. If it's at all possible considering the time, I would like to finish lesson 7 tonight, but if I can't Lord willing we'll finish it very shortly and go on. This course at the present time has eleven parts to it, the teacher, the on line, the teacher or the Rabbi who is teaching on line apparently is not continuing with this course at this time, but I would be very happy to get to lesson 11, and then we do have other books that the Lord will teach us through. I do have a short exhortation for you right now, which has nothing to do with lesson 7, I just don't know what to do with it, and it's not long enough to make a tape of its own, so I am going to start off this message with this exhortation.

 

Concerning the defenses that we have in Christ and I've known for a long time that from my personal experience, that my emotions needed to be defended, that and I believe that, I'm speaking about myself, because I'm your example, but I believe that we all go through this to one degree or another, that I had a real problem controlling my emotions at one point, and that problem is not nearly as severe as it was, I've had a lot of deliverance in that area and I know that the Lord has built a wall around my emotions, and also I have a problem with lust for food, that's what overeating is, it's a lust for food, this overeating it's the only socially acceptable lust in the church.

 

We know that drug addiction is not acceptable, and we know that alcohol is not acceptable, we know that cigarettes are not acceptable. The lust for nicotine is more socially acceptable than the lust for alcohol and drugs, but the lust for food is almost completely tolerated in the church. But we must face what it is, it's a lust, it is a lusts of the flesh that those of us who have a problem with our weight have not taken the victory over, and I am one of those people. I struggle everyday, and I know that I'm doing a lot better, it's taken years. I saw a program on tv today that wanted to sell me a series of CDS for 130 or $150 and the program first was a cd that if you listen to it, it was suppose to deal with the subconscious aspect of your mind that was causing the craving. The second cd was a program that would teach you how to crave the healthy foods and the third cd was designed to help you to be happy with the thought of exercising because most people who are overweight choose the wrong foods and don't like to exercise and I was one of those people.

 

For years the Lord has been working with me to change my preferences in food. He has radically changed my preferences in food, so I didn't need that cd, I was a person who really disliked physical activity and exercise, and now I'm on the treadmill and I do all kinds of exercises, I exercise almost everyday, I don't do anything on Sunday because it's a long day for me, and Monday is our office work day and our shipping day, so sometimes I can't get to the gym but I try. And I actually enjoy it, so I don't need that cd, the only thing that's left to me is that when I get under a lot of pressure or upset in any way, and I don't get upset that often anymore, but when I'm really facing something that could be very upsetting, the way it manifests in mind is that I crave food. And the Lord has been working with me on this now for over thirty years, and I said to him Lord, should I buy these CDs, I'm just desperate because it's been a very rough week, and I've put back on a few pounds, I still look okay, I've taken off a lot of weight, but I'm not at all happy that I can't take off the balance that I need to take off, and that every time I come under this pressure, this is how it gets me you know, that I go off my diet and I have gained about 4 or 5 pounds back, which I'm very unhappy about.

 

So as I sought the Lord , he told me not to buy the CDs, he's helped me in the other two areas, and of course my lust for food is much less than it use to be, and when I do lust, I don't eat anything destructive as I use to eat in the past, but I am really asking the Lord to deliver me from this bondage that when I come under a spiritual attack, when I come under pressure, part of that pressure is a pressure to eat foods that are not in my best interest, and it's a real battle, or I may win the battle one day and then I don't win it the next day, but the true deliverance is that the battle should be removed from me, that when I'm under pressure, Satan should not have this power to put me, to drain my resources and drain my energy by having to fight off this strong desire to eat something that will help me for some reason to feel better. And I know that walls are being built around my heart, because I use to be hurt much more in my emotions and also around my appetite, and I realize now that, that appetite is in the Nefesh, the lowest level of soul.

 

And the Lord gave me this revelation that I just want to share with you tonight about exactly what the walls are that are being built around us. There are five levels of soul, five levels to the soul of a man, all men do not have all five levels. The five levels are the Yechidah which is associated with the Keter, the Chayyah, that's the soul of the soul, that's associated with Chokhmah, the Neshamah is associated with Binah and that's the mind of Christ that we receive, and you know I did these numbers backwards, I'm going to have to change them before you take the picture, okay. The first level of soul, is the Nefesh down here, Malkhut, and the Ruach which is the spirit as associated with Tiferet, the Neshamah is the mind of Christ that comes from Binah, Chayyah the soul of the soul comes from Chokhmah and Yechidah, oneness comes from Keter.

 

Now every man born of a woman is born with a Nefesh because that's our animation, that's what gives us the consciousness and the ability to exist in this world, that's what animation is, I try not to say life, because there is no life apart from Christ, yet we see trillions of people walking around in this world that don't have Christ, so we're not really alive, the truth is that this is hell and we're dead, but that we have animation, we have existence.

 

Everybody born of a woman has a Nefesh, everybody born of a woman has a Ruach, that's the spirit, that's where it ends, okay. The Neshamah which comes from Binah is the mind of Christ and there is a Neshamah of the other side, there is a higher mind that comes from the other side which is Satan's kingdom. We know that there is a spiritual ascension in Satan's kingdom, but the average man just has a Nefesh and a Ruach, that man is vulnerable okay, those of us that are in Christ, we have acquired or we acquire or are in the process of acquiring a Neshamah, the mind of Christ which comes down from Binah, and Binah you may recall is eternal life. All of the Sefirot underneath Binah can die, they are all immortality.

 

So when we receive the mind of Christ that's the first aspect of immortality that is joined to us, and over here in the center of the board, I show you the three and of course this is called the lower soul, the Nefesh, the Ruach and the Neshamah, are called the lower soul. Mortal man is capable of acquiring a Neshamah. All mortal men have the Nefesh and the Ruach, and all mortal men are capable of acquiring a Neshamah, the mind of Christ, it's available to us today and it comes through study, you see. The church has to be educated, this is a message that's not well received, but there is more to being Christian than to dancing around having hands laid on you and receiving the gifts without any work at all, that's just the very beginning, we have to go on and study to show ourselves approved. The Neshamah is associated with the brain, and therefore it is associated with study. The Neshamah if you use it, has the ability to make you more intelligent than that intelligence that you came into this world with.

 

But you have to exercise it, you have to use it, okay. People that are naturally intelligent, will have an easier time of it, if you are a person who is not who came into this world as not one of the most intelligent people in the world, you have the opportunity to become intelligent if you lay hold of this Neshamah and exercise it. You have to study you have to put yourself in the word, you have to pray, you have to ask God questions, you have to seek to understand this word. Your Neshamah is your ability to ask the questions and get the answers. Without the mind of Christ, you probably won't even have the questions to ask, you see.

 

So you have to exercise it, and if you can't think of any questions, you could say, "Lord give me a question to ask you." See, there's no excuse for not doing anything, because all you have to do is say to the Lord, Lord help me to do it. If you're not saying to the Lord, I'm not doing what I would like to do, help me to do it, you have no excuse you see. So this is the lower soul, and this is the condition that I believe that we are all in, in this ministry, we all have the mind of Christ.

 

Now the Chayyah, that's the fourth level of soul, it's called the soul of the soul and it comes down from Chokhmah, Chokhmah is wisdom and this is our wall of defense, this is our first wall of defense, wisdom, wisdom. We were talking about that off the tape how so many Christians think that the Lord is going to deliver them from everything, but we are admonished and exhorted to get wisdom, to get knowledge and to get understanding. God's defense that he's provided for us is in wisdom, he is not going to treat us as infants forever, he may do that at the very beginning, but we are required to grow up and to acquire the wisdom of God. and this Chayyah, which is the fourth level of soul which comes from Chokhmah, which is wisdom forms a wall around each of the levels of the lower soul. There's a wall of Chayyah around Nefesh, there's a wall of Chayyah around Ruach, and there's a wall of Chayyah around the mind of Christ, and by the way, the Neshamah is associated with the brain, the Ruach is associated with the heart, and the Nefesh is associated with or found in the flesh or physical body, the blood and the liver. So you see when we read I believe in the book of Jeremiah, that the King of Babylon looks in the liver, I always wondered what that meant, do you know what it means?

 

It means that he gets his spirituality and his words of knowledge and his wisdom from the Nefesh, not from the Neshamah, not from the mind of God, from the lowest level of soul, that means he's getting his spirituality from Satan, that's what it means. I now understand that I must be acquiring or I must have acquired at least some degree of Chayyah in my emotions, because my emotions were all over the place several years ago, and they would be, I would be so vulnerable that if something would stir up my emotions I would be out of business, I wouldn't be able to work for two or three days, and I prayed and prayed for a long time, and now I know that a wall has been built around me. I know it's not an impregnable wall but enough of a wall has been built around my heart you see, that if I fight with that wall, if I use that wall as a weapon, it's very hard for Satan to overthrow me, see. But it's still possible for Satan to torment me. I've had a difficult few days in my emotions, but here I am teaching, I am prepared for tonight's message, I am functioning, I have done everything that I need to do, the only victory that Satan has had over me is in two areas, I did eat more than I should have eaten, I ate for the wrong reason you see, I ate compulsively, that means the lust for food manifested in me, and I yielded to it, and Satan has tortured me in my emotions, there's been pain in my heart and in my emotions, you see.

 

But that, Satan will try to control us with pain, or with pleasure. Although she has tortured me in my emotions and in my mind for at least at one point it was in my, I was being tortured with thoughts in my mind. The only thing that she was able to get me to do, her pain was only able to manipulate me concerning the food that I ate, and that was much less severe than it would have been a year ago, or two years ago, and also Satan was able to give me this pain and drain my energy in fighting her off. So I give God all the glory that, that which I ate was not nearly as destructive as it would have been a couple of years ago. Because there is now a wall around my emotions, and around my Nefesh, but it's not an impregnable wall. I didn't lose control of my emotions, so the wall around my Ruach is pretty strong these days, I don't lose control of my emotions but I do feel the pain down here in my Nefesh, in my animal nature, lust did manifest, but not nearly as destructive as it would have been. So I see that the wall of Chayyah is being built in an order that I would, my carnal mind would consider a backwards order. I know that the wall of Chayyah is built around my Neshamah for years, it's very, very hard to overthrow me with doctrine, I have not been overthrown with doctrine in about thirteen or fourteen years. I did preach ultimate reconciliation for about six months, and that's the only time that I'm aware of in my twenty four years with the Lord that I have ever embraced a false doctrine, and he straightened me out within six months.

 

So I don't know about you but I would think that the wall that's being built would first be built around my Nefesh, and then around my Ruach, and then around my Neshamah, but my whole walk is backwards. See the Lord could start to build you up in any place that he wants to. Apparently I have this call on my life and he built me up in the mind of Christ first. I'm very close to being impregnable, I don't want to say I am impregnable because I really don't want to be tested, but I'm very strong and it's very hard to sell me a false doctrine, very, very hard, and it's not a fight, you see, we're not suppose to be fighting, we're suppose to be delivered from the conflict you see. So I don't have much of a conflict with doctrine. I just by the grace of God you know I'm very, very defensed in this area, the mind of Christ is very strong in me. In my emotions I know now that Chayyah is either built around my heart or being built around my heart because my emotions are so much better, and my lust for food which is pretty much, sometimes I have some lust for material things, you know, so the wall is weakest I would say around my Nefesh right now. When one would think that the wall would be weakest around the Neshamah, the wall is weakest around my Nefesh. Now I don't know whether these walls have to get stronger or the additional layers of wall that will eventually deliver me from the conflict. I don't know whether I struggle with some lust because the wall around my Nefesh is less strong than the wall around my Neshamah, maybe that's not true, maybe the person that I am, I have a stronger lust for material things and food than well let me say it this way, looking at my Nefesh, I have a very logical mind, maybe that helps me, maybe that helps my Nefesh to not be seduced to false doctrine because I was born with a very logical mind, and therefore it appears that the wall around my Nefesh is very strong, but maybe it's the logical mind that I was born with that makes it so strong. But down here at the bottom, I was born with the potential to overeat through my whole family and I like nice clothes and I have some lust for material things, things that I really like.

 

So maybe the wall around my Nefesh is just as strong as the wall around my Neshamah but because of the personality that I came into the world with, I may be weaker in the area of lust for food and material things than I am in the area of logic, is anyone not understanding what I'm saying. It's not just the wall, the three walls may be equal, but maybe I'm a very emotional person. So the wall that may not be strong enough to hold in my emotions but it may be strong enough to defend me doctrinally, do you understand what I'm saying, okay. So maybe that's all that it is, maybe all three walls are equal, the Chayyah is equal around the Neshamah the Ruach, and the Nefesh, but I need more strength to control my emotions than I need to defend me from doctrine, and I need even more strength to defend me against lust for food, and material things isn't that bad, but my big problem is lust for food, I need an even stronger wall to defend my Nefesh, than to defend the Ruach and the Neshamah, and maybe the Chayyah is not going to get any stronger, maybe it will never get any stronger, maybe I will not be delivered from the conflict in these areas until the other layers of wall surround me. So we see that the Chayyah is the inner wall. Then we have the Yechidah which is associated with Keter, and we know Keter is very high, Keter is the power of the Ayn Sof inside of the Sefirot, Keter is very high.

 

So the Keter is oneness, it does not surround the three levels of lower soul separately, but it surrounds the whole lower soul in one circle, that's the middle wall, and I don't know to what degree I have that, I don't know what the signs of having the Keter are, but we know that the Lord Jesus Christ is Keter. I don't know how to measure myself, I don't know how joined my soul is to him, I don't know, all I know is I get stronger and stronger and better and better everyday. Now there are two more outer walls that I didn't put on this board because I wasn't sure how to draw them, the books that I'm reading that have taught me this have not shown me a diagram of them, I just know that there are two more walls that can be added to us at which point we become sinless.

 

See each wall that's added to you is harder and harder for our sin nature to make us sin, and when all the walls are added to us, we are incapable of sin, we are so insulated against our potential to sin that we become sinless, because this is sin, lust for food is sin, eating to relieve anxiety is sin, eating to relieve pressure is sin, Christ doesn't do that.

 

See anything that we do that Christ doesn't do is out of our sin nature. I thought you might like to see this, it really encouraged me and I thought that it might encourage you to get a better understanding of the walls that the Lord is building around us, and how we get stronger every day as we pursue Christ, through mental pursuits. Christ is a mind, and he must be pursued through mental pursuits. Therefore to say to yourself, oh I can't do that because I'm not a student, or I have people tell me I'm not as intelligent as you are Sheila. That has nothing to do with it, Christ is your intelligence. If you will just use him, you will grow in intelligence, and you will be able to understand everything that he wants you understand, surely you have all heard of miracles of blind people reading the Bible, people that can't read reading the Bible, well you can do anything in Christ if you submit yourself to him and if it is his will for you to do it, then it's his will for you to pursue advanced studies at this time, I know it's his will for everybody, but if it's his will at this time, if it is then you could do it, and you shouldn't be comparing yourself to me, you should be comparing yourself to who you were a year ago, that's what you should be doing. I hope this has encouraged you, it has really encouraged me, and it's very exciting to see what the Lord is doing in my life. I believe I must have some measure of the Yechidah, simply because of the ministry that the Lord's given me, I am now asking him what if anything that I have to do other than what I'm doing to get the next two layers of soul, because I really would love to be delivered from the kind of emotional torment I've been through these last couple of days, and even the mental torment, which was only bad for one evening, because I resist more and more, I now know these crazy thoughts that come into my mind are lies.

 

I look forward to full deliverance, and I just now understand that, that deliverance will come when the five walls, well it's more than five, it's four walls, when the four walls, when the full four walls are in place, protecting my soul, and we also know that we're told that the book of Ezekiel, and I think in the book of Revelation too, it talks about the believers who are living in un-walled villages, I now know what that means, it means they have the lower level of soul, it means they have the mind of Christ, well every man has the Nefesh and the Ruach, these are believers that have the mind of Christ, but there are walls, they don't have the Chayyah, they don't have wisdom, they have the mind of Christ but that mind of Christ has not been instructed in wisdom.

 

I know I preached a message not too long ago, I think it was Gog and Magog, the secret of Gog and Magog, where I said the wall was Christ Jesus, and now I know, know the wall is not Christ Jesus, the wall is Chayyah, and who knows maybe Chayyah is Christ Jesus, I don't know, maybe that's the same thing. Neshamah is the mind of Christ, so maybe the Chayyah is Christ Jesus I don't know, I'm not going to get hung up on it, I hope this has blessed you it has really blessed me. Are there any questions or comments on this. Okay.

 

I have put drawing #2 on the board because in part eighteen of this message, I see that the Lord has corrected something that I said on part 18 of this message. So the drawing for part 18 of this message which is pretty much the same drawing that I have on the board now, I say that is the light born of the union of AB, and SaG called knowledge, now I know that, that is not correct. I remind you that I am a student teacher that the Lord has instructed me to teach you and as he teaches me, so this has happened in the past and will happen in the future, that I will have a definition wrong, and when the Lord corrects me I will correct you.

 

I now understand that Da'at is the joining of the lowest level of Keter. Remember every Sefirah has within it another ten Sefirot. So the lowest level of Keter would really be Malkhut. The Malkhut of this Keter here stretches down, the Malkhut of this Keter of the world of points stretches down and covers the Yesod of the world of bound lights, and this combination produces knowledge. Is everyone okay with that? Okay. Let me just read you what's on the board here, and let me tell you this, my definition of knowledge on part 18 of this message, I now understand to be incorrect, and this is the correction to it. We're talking about overlapping worlds. There are five worlds one underneath the other, and the new world or the lower world is coming forth always begins at the Tiferet of the world above. So the fives worlds are all overlapping, this is how they're connected to one another, by overlapping okay. So I've shown you here, I've drawn in black the world of bound lights, which you may recall comes out of Adam Kadmon's mouth, and after the world of bound lights the next world down is the world of points, I've drawn the world of bound lights in black, and the world of points, I've drawn in red so you could see the overlapping.

 

So here are the Sefirot in black, here are the Sefirot of the world of bound lights in black, in the traditional three columns, Keter in the middle, Binah, Gevurah, and Hod, on the left, Chokhmah, Chesed, and Netzach on the right, and I'm sorry in the middle it's Keter, Tiferet, Yesod, and Malkhut, that's the world of bound lights. So now the world of points comes down, and starts overlapping the world of bound lights, and the reason for the overlapping is that the world should be joined in the world of points, which is in red, begins to overlap at this black Tiferet here, which is the Tiferet of the world of bound lights. We see the red Keter is overlapping the Keter of the world of points is overlapping the Tiferet of the world of bound lights, the Binah of the world of points is overlapping the Hod of the world of, did I say that backwards, the Binah of the world of points is overlapping the world of Hod of the world of bound lights. The Chokhmah of the world of points is overlapping the Netzach of the world of bound lights. And then we see that the Chesed and the Gevurah and the Tiferet of the world of points are not overlapping anything, but or the Tiferet of the world of points is well I'm not going to get into that right now, I'm confusing you enough.

 

Now I see that before we take the picture I'm going to change this Keter, I'm going to change it to Malkhut. Let me say this to you again, each Sefirot has ten Sefirot within it. So if the lowest Sefirot of the Keter of the world of points is going to reach down to cover Yesod, then that's the Malkhut of the Keter of the world of points that's covering Yesod, and we have once again a union of Malkhut and Yesod to produce knowledge, remember that's the married couple, Malkhut and Yesod are the married couple. What we're talking about here is Malkhut from the world of points marrying a Yesod from the world of bound lights, okay. And the fruit of that is what we call knowledge, and over here is a further explanation. The lowest level of Keter descends and covers Yesod to form Da'at which is knowledge. Keter is spiritual energy, plus Yesod which is sexual energy, and the union produces knowledge. The union of spiritual and sexual energy produces knowledge.

 

Over as a key black is the world of bound lights, also called the Akudim read as the world of points called the Nikudim, the world of bound lights is in Adam Kadmon's mouth, and the light of that world it's light descends as far as Adam Kadmon's navel all the way down to here. The world of points overlaps or I'm sorry over here. The light of the world of points begins at the Tiferet of the world of bound lights, and goes all the way down, I think it goes down to his feet, I'm not going to write that on the drawing because I'm not sure, but I think the world, the light of the world of points shines all the way down to Adam Kadmon's feet. Is everybody okay with this, any questions or comments on this?

 

I remind you again because we really haven't been into these deep studies in a long time, don't let this upset you.

 

These lessons, they're really to expand your mind, that's what they are designed to do, expand your mind. I told you at the beginning of this message, I was not able to continue on with this course for three months because I couldn't understand, actually this is the teaching that I couldn't understand. It took me three months to get it. Now if I had a teacher like you had a teacher, I'm sure that I could have understood it right away, but my problem was I couldn't understand the placing of the Sefirot, but the Lord finally got it through to me, I'm studying under a spiritual teacher, even though these notes come from an on line course, given by a Rabbi, they're very complicated notes, you really need a teacher to explain them to you, but the Lord has instructed me to not go to any man but to work with these notes and pray until the Lord gives me understanding.

 

So I did what the Lord told me I just pursued other studies and now three months later I picked up these notes and I don't know what my problem was, everything seems so simple now. But remember, this is very important, we are not pursuing knowledge, we are really not pursuing knowledge, these courses, this teaching, this technical teaching is designed to expand Christ in you, and when Christ grows in you, you will understand. The knowledge comes after Christ expands in you, just submit yourself to the teaching, do the best that you can, ask the Lord to help you and as Christ in you expands, you'll understand. We're not pursuing knowledge, we're pursuing Christ. Is everybody okay with this, whatever you can get out of it, if you just walk away with one little bit of something that you never saw before, this whole lesson and this whole evening is worth your while. And maybe you won't even be aware that your understanding has been expanded, but I think that you should believe by faith that if you're sitting here, if you've submitted yourself that you've got something whether you can recognize it or not.

 

We all know in this ministry, it's like almost a joke here that like as hard as everything seems, we look back at message number one or message number two, which at the time that I was preaching it was just as hard to us as this is, and now it's a joke, it's so simple. That's the way it seems to work, if you just submit yourself to the teaching and stretch yourself, stretch your mind, stretch your mind, you may go on for months thinking oh, I don't understand this, but when you look back at a message from six months ago, even on Kabbalah you'll find that you're understanding it. Because as you stretch yourself to understand more and more what you learned a few weeks ago or a few months ago, becomes easy and you don't even realize that it's happening. Don't get upset if you don't understand the details, just imagine yourself in my place without a human teacher, this was the hardest thing for me to get. And I'll tell you why it was the hardest thing for me to get, well I'm not even going to bother you with that right now, I want to go on with lesson 7, there's still a question here that I don't have an answer to but I don't want to confuse you anymore.

 

This is the teaching as it has come forth from our online course, and until the Lord corrects me on it, I have to leave it with this. Well I guess I'll give you the question. This is my question, I'm told from this online teacher who is a Rabbi who is teaching us Isaac Luria's works, we're told that the world of points or that the Ze'ir Anpin, and the Malkhut, the lowest Sefirot of the world of points came out in a straight line, that's what we're taught. Do you remember that those Sefirot came out in a straight line, and that's why they shattered because all of the lights that poured into the Chesed, Chesed was suppose to take what it needed and pass the rest on to Gevurah and Gevurah was suppose to take what it needed and pass the rest on to Tiferet, and they were all one under the other, but they didn't do that, they collapsed under the weight, Chesed collapsed under the weight of all of the light that dumped into it, do you remember that teaching? Remember that teaching?

 

So when I started reading lesson #7, and I was trying to understand what the Rabbi was saying, I was totally confused because I was not thinking of the Sefirot in three columns, I was thinking of the Sefirot in one column, and I still don't have an answer to my question, do you understand my question? I couldn't figure out what the man was saying because I was thinking in terms of the world of points having all of these red Sefirot in a straight line. So how do you get from that to this, and the way he stated it in his notes was according to the order of emanation, the lowest level of Keter stretched down to Yesod and covered it, and I just, I was wracking my brains for months, I was almost at the point of having a conniption there, it just didn't make any sense to me at all. And as far as I'm concerned, there is a discrepancy here there's something that I don't understand. There's something that I don't understand, but we're going to let this go for now, okay I think that, we now have an understanding of what Da'at is, even if everything isn't placed properly, I now can understand that the lowest level of Keter gets together with Yesod, both Keter and Yesod being in the center column, and that's why Da'at is in the center column.

 

We have the joining of the energy of the highest Sefirot to the energy of the lowest Sefirah of Ze'ir Anpin, and that's good enough for us now. Is everybody okay. Okay Praise the Lord this is another day, okay, the beginning part of this message was so short that we decided to continue on, on the same tape on the following service. The previous words that you heard were preached on a Thursday, and it is now Sunday morning. Now before we continue with this message, I have to clarify one issue, I do apologize for the confusion here with this issue concerning the definition of Da'at. I previously said that I had some confusion about it and now in the few days that I had to study, I have even more confusion about it. At the beginning of this message I talked about drawing, I think it was drawing #1 of part 18, I started out this message by saying I was correcting that, because on drawing #1 of part 18 it says, Da'at is the light born of the union of AB, and SaG, called knowledge, Da'at is called knowledge, Da'at then joins with Yesod to produce the compound spiritual energy of intellect and sexual energy.

 

And at the beginning of this very tape I told you where this, apparently I found out what's wrong because I was looking at something that I read in the notes of the online course that we're taking, lecture 7 page two, and six paragraphs, at the end of that paragraph it says, the Malkhut overlapping the upper portion of the Tiferet, therefore what overlaps the Yesod is the outer manifestation of the Keter. This is Da'at, the outer manifestation of the Keter, this is Da'at. But then in another place, he tells us in this very same lecture 7, he tells us what I have written on drawing #1 for part 18, he says that Da'at is the light born of the union of AB, and SaG. I prayed about this issue, I have not yet heard an answer from the Lord, there's something that I'm not understanding, I have to humble myself and believe that this Rabbi that is teaching... To my mind to the degree of understanding that I have right now, this is a contradiction to say to me that the outer layer of Keter is Da'at, and that also Da'at is born of the union of AB, and SaG, I don't see how the outer layer of Keter can be born of the union of AB, and SaG. Therefore I'm going to leave this issue, I just want to leave you with an understanding that I don't understand this, and that the two things that I've taught you, the two positions that I've taught you concerning Da'at and what Da'at is, this is my understanding of what I've read from the notes of this online course, and that it is an unresolved issue with me.

 

So let us just go on from here. We are picking up we're still on lecture 7, I hope to finish this today, we're on page five of lesson 7, and I'll start with the second paragraph down. Now I may have commented on the second paragraph down previously, but I feel to start here today, for those of you listening to the tape or reading the transcript, it's been several months since we did this previous messages on lesson 7. I ran into a problem of understanding which pretty much had to do with this issue of Da'at and the order of the Sefirot, so I've been on hold for three months, therefore I will pick up with the second paragraph and hope to lead you into the rest of the message, and hope to finish it today. Lord Jesus thank you. Okay second paragraph on page five, these overlapping lights, see that was the issue that I got stuck on, the overlapping lights, but earlier on this message I showed you the overlapping lights, on drawing #1, I showed you the overlapping lights and I showed you how the Keter of the lower world overlaps the lower third of the Tiferet of the world above, and this is how the worlds are attached to one another, by overlapping the Sefirot. The overlapping lights, and also let me tell you this, I talk about the overlapping Sefirot, the Rabbi talks about the overlapping lights, remember that the Sefirot are filled with light, the Sefirot are really empty vessels that are designed to contain light. That's just another way of saying inner light. There's inner light and there's outer light and there are vessels.

 

When we apply this high doctrine to the natural, we are the vessels, the inner light is Christ, and the outer light is the glorified Jesus Christ. Okay, and it's possible for a Sefirah to be lacking light completely and that is the condition of this world. This whole world is Malkhut, the whole universe is Malkhut, each one of us is a manifestation of Malkhut, the whole world as we know it, and each individual thereof was completely without light until Jesus Christ appeared in the world. The only light that was present was in Israel, and that was contained in Israel. Today we know that Jesus is the light of the world, he is available to all those who will come and drink in his fountain. But basically speaking the world is still lacking light, and most of the people are empty Sefirot, vessels without light. These overlapping lights explain what happened to the Sefirot of the realm of the Nikudim. Does anybody remember what the Nikudim is? The realm of the Nikudim? You remember, oh, okay.

 

COMMENT: The world of points.

 

PASTOR VITALE: Yes, the world of points, and the world of the Akudim is the world of bound lights. The world of bound lights within Adam Kadmon's mouth, and the world of points is below Adam Kadmon's navel. Let me review this for you since it's been so long since we did this study, could you put that on hold? Drawing #3 is on the board, this is strictly review, I'm showing you Adam Kadmon, I've drawing his eyes, and the light from his eyes in blue, the light from his ears in green, the light from his nose in black, and the light from his mouth in red. So as you can see, the lights from the various aspects of Adam Kadmon overshadow each other. I am going to do a drawing #4 where I will show you more clearly where each of the lights appear because drawing #3 is really just a mish-mash of all the lights crossing over each other. Does anybody have a question on this drawing which is, you probably have several similar drawings to it. I've drawn this so many times, Adam Kadmon's heart, Adam Kadmon's navel, Adam Kadmon's diaphragm, and of course the world of points is within Adam Kadmon's diaphragm, the world of bound lights is in Adam Kadmon's mouth.

 

Any questions about this board. Drawing #4 is on the board. I'm trying to show you the principle of the shining lights that come through Adam Kadmon, and that principle is that the most powerful light, when the most powerful light is shining, the weaker lights are not seen. So as you can see from drawing #4, the light of Adam Kadmon's ears, and the higher the lights are, the more powerful they are. So the light from the ears shines more brightly than the light from the nose, and the light from the nose shines more brightly than the light from the mouth. So where the light from the ears is shining, we see that, that, that light covers Adam Kadmon's nose, and that light covers Adam Kadmon's mouth. We're told that the light from Adam Kadmon's ears shines down to the tip of his beard, and the beard is drawn in the Kabbalistic drawings, as I have it here, it's not drawn as we would think of a beard, I always think of a beard coming to a point okay, but the Kabbalistic drawings just shows the single strands coming out of Adam Kadmon's chin. So the light of the ears is the only light that you could see. The whole area of Adam Kadmon's face and as far down as his beard comes, if his beard covers his neck or not, I'm not sure if his beard covers his neck or not, but that is the way I've drawn it here. So even though we see the light we know that the light of the nose and the light of the mouth is shining in the area below the nose and below the mouth, it cannot be seen because the light of the ears is too bright. Is everybody okay with that principle? Okay. Now as soon as we get past the bottom of Adam Kadmon's beard, the light of the ears is no longer shining. So what is below Adam Kadmon's beard, we have the nose and the light of the mouth is shining in this area, but the light of the nose is more powerful than the light of the mouth. So all that we from below Adam Kadmon's beard to the bottom of his heart is the light of the nose. The light of the mouth is there, but all that we see is the light of the nose because when the light of the nose shines, it's so bright that you cannot see the light of the mouth.

 

The light of the eyes which comes forth last could be seen only below the heart of Adam Kadmon. Well you might say, the light of the eyes isn't that more powerful than the light of the ears and the nose and the mouth? Did anybody think that question? What happens with the light from the eyes, is that the light from the eyes has to pierce, pass out through the pupils. The light of Adam Kadmon's eyes comes through a curtain, that light shines through a curtain, the light that comes from the ears the nose and the mouth is unfiltered, the light just pours out. The light of the eyes is so powerful that if it wasn't arranged for that light to pass through a curtain, it would be destructive. Everybody understand that? Okay. Praise the Lord, okay, so let's go on with the notes.

 

Reading from the notes now, the second paragraph on page 5. These overlapping lights explain what happened to the Sefirah of the realm of the Nikudim, that's the world of points, and why the vessels of the lower seven, that's the lower seven Sefirot of the world of points, including the Da'at shattered. Now before I go on I just want to remind you that the doctrine of Christ does not agree with this Kabbalistic teaching of Isaac Luria. And this is the explanation as to why the vessels shattered, in other words why the creation is in its present condition, why there was a fall. The light of the ears of Adam Kadmon ends at the tip of the beard. Okay I just showed you that right? Therefore while the light of the nose is in touch with the light of the ears, the light of the mouth can only be seen, is one stepped removed, it's lower down. I should have not told you, I should have told you to not erase that board. While the light of the nose is in touch with the light of the ears it's shining in the same place, the light of the mouth is one step lower.

 

Remember the light of the ears stops at the bottom of the beard, but the light of the mouth goes one step lower. When Adam Kadmon looked out with his eyes upon the lower seven vessels of the Nikudim... Okay we have just redone drawing #4 because I didn't have it quite right the first time I put it up there on the board. If you're reading the transcript or listening to the tape, you have only the revised drawing. I show the light of the ears extending to the bottom of Adam Kadmon's beard, the light of the nose shining from the bottom of Adam Kadmon's beard to the bottom of his heart, and the light of the mouth shining from the bottom of Adam Kadmon's heart to his navel, the light of the eyes shining below the navel. Are there any questions on this? That these lights are overlapping each other and when there is an overlap of lights only the brightest light is seen, that's what I mean when I say the light of the ears are seen on the face and down to the bottom of the beard.

 

Also the light of the nose and the light of the mouth is present but you can't see it because the light of the ears is shining too brightly. Is everyone okay? Alright, before we go on with the text, I am going to draw one more picture to demonstrate what the next few sentences in the text is. Well let me read you the sentences first, and then I'll put it on the board. And then we're going to break for dinner. Now what we're talking about is the shattering of the vessels, you may recall that the seven lower Sefirot plus Da'at of the world of points that's eight, well Da'at is not a Sefirah, Da'at is a quasi-Sefirah, so it's the seven lower Sefirot of the Sefirot of the world of points plus Da'at that shattered, and because they shattered we're told by the current Kabbalistic doctrine which is the doctrine of Isaac Luria, that it was the shattering that caused the light of God to fall down into the lower worlds which were not yet created, this world of action, the world of formation, and the world of creation were not yet prepared to receive life.

 

So the lights fell down prematurely into these worlds and that is why we have the problems that we have. This is the most accepted doctrine in Kabbalistic circles today. There may be other doctrines with small groups that I don't know about, this is the popular doctrine, and this doctrine is contradicted by the doctrine of Christ which says that we're down in the world of action, that we're mortal, that we're having the problems that we're having because of sin. There is no mention of sin in the Kabbalistic doctrine at this point. Kabbalistic doctrine does talk about the sin of Adam, the Adam of a lower world, but I am suggesting to you that there is nothing new under the sun, this is a Kabbalistic principle that if there was sin below, there must be sin above.

 

If there's sin on my family line today there had to be sin on my family of two generations ago. So well let me read what else he has here. The light of the mouth becomes manifests 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, that means the light is appearing lower down beyond the light of the ears. When Adam Kadmon looks out, okay now this is the next drawing that I'm going to do, when Adam Kadmon looked out with his eyes upon the lower seven vessels of the Nikudim, that's the world of points, 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 or come out improperly and this improper emanations is what caused the shattering. Now this is what we're being told, that when the light that came out of Adam Kadmon's eyes arose into his eyes to flow forth, the light of the eyes which were conscious beings, okay you have to understand this, the light that is coming out of the eyes or the lights, that are coming out of the eyes are conscious beings, looking for guide posts or instructions as to how to line up once they got outside. And you may recall that these lights are coming from the inside of Adam Kadmon, actually they're coming from the inside of his diaphragm down here, coming out of his eyes.

 

Now we're told that these lights, these conscious beings called lights that were coming out of his eyes, they couldn't see the Sefirot, see all of this light here, it says the light of the nose is seen here, the light of the ears is seen here. That light was appearing as Sefirot in the order of three columns left and right and center. The light of the ears, and this is going to be my next drawing, was appearing in three columns, the light of the ears is ten Sefirot, left, right and center columns. The light of the nose is appearing as ten Sefirot, left, right, and center column. The light of the mouth is appearing as ten Sefirot, which are not left, right, and center, and I'm going to review that with you on the next drawing. So these conscious beings that were light or lights looked out of Adam Kadmon's eyes, and they were trying to figure out where they were suppose to go, and this Kabbalistic doctrine says well they looked out and all they could see was the light of the mouth, and therefore they messed up. Now remember the light of the ears is understanding. So we can also say the conscious beings called the light of the eyes looked out Adam Kadmon's eyes and they were blocked from understanding. Well I don't know about you but my Bible tells me that when I don't have any understanding, what is my problem? What causes me to not understand? Okay?

 

COMMENT: sin?

 

PASTOR VITALE: Yes, sin, which sin?

 

COMMENT: Pride?

 

PASTOR VITALE: Well pride is always there but rebellion, rebellion, but is always present. It's the sin of rebellion, you don't want to see it. You want to believe what you want to believe, for your own purposes, you want to believe what you want to believe because you do not want to do what you would have to do if you saw the truth, and that's why it's rebellion, you see. So this is the Kabbalistic doctrine, these highly, very highly anointed high lights that are coming out of the eyes that are so powerful that they have to pass through the pupils of Adam Kadmon, they have to pass through a veil, or they're so powerful that they would be destructive, they were powerful without understanding, they couldn't see the light of the ears, powerful without understanding, okay.

 

Alright I'm going to do another drawing, this is all review but I know that we haven't been in the teachings of the tree of life for a long time, so that is okay with me if we're doing a review. Every time we do a review it comes out a little different and as the months go by I have more understanding myself, so I can help you to understand better. Okay I'm going to put drawing #5 on the board, but I think we'll discuss it after dinner when we come back.

 

Drawing #5, now let me remind you, this is the doctrine of Kabbalah, the doctrine of Christ does not agree with it, okay, drawing #5 is showing us the cause and the events of what we would call the fall, okay Kabbalah calls it the shattering of the vessels. This is the doctrine, Adam Kadmon has light coming out of his ears, his nose and his mouth, and we explained this with drawing #4, how the light shines down to his navel. Now this drawing is a little different, I'm showing you the world of bound lights, well let me start at the top, okay. The light of the ears shines down over Adam Kadmon's whole face, over his nose, over his mouth, and the light of the ears shines to the end of his beard, which I guess I, before you take the picture I'll put his beard in over here okay. The light of Adam Kadmon's ears shines down to the tip of his beard, and the light of his ears is understanding.

 

The light that comes from the ears shines so brightly that it overshadows the light from the nose and from the mouth. So where the light of the ears are shining you cannot see the light of the nose or the light of the mouth.

 

The light of the nose shines in the same place that the light of the ears shines but goes beyond the tip of the beard, the light of the nose shines down into the heart of Adam Kadmon. The nose is associated with the heart. The lights of Adam Kadmon's nose is associated with the heart, and with the emotions, in the heart is the emotions and the spirit, the Ruach. The light of the mouth, now you cannot see the light of the mouth shines okay, all the way down to the heart, the same place where the light of the nose is, and where the light of the nose is shining, you cannot see the light of the mouth because the light of the nose is shining too brightly.

 

 

But the light of the nose stops at the heart of Adam Kadmon, and the light of the mouth keeps on going. So we have one section here below the light of the heart where only the light of the mouth shines. Now I've been teaching you all along that the light of the mouth shines down to the navel of Adam Kadmon, from the heart to the navel, and then the light of the eyes shines below the navel. I now understand that the navel of Adam Kadmon according to Kabbalah is the lowest third of the Tiferet which is the heart. Remember each organ has its own ten Sefirot, the heart has its own ten Sefirot. So the navel of Adam Kadmon would be the lowest three and a half of the ten Sefirot, is everyone following me? Now that's not true with our human body, the heart is up here and the navel is all the way down here, but are you going to argue with a Kabbalist, I'm not going to argue with a Kabbalist, okay, and remember this is spiritual teaching, it doesn't have to fit in with the reality of what we consider the norm. So I've drawing this heart without finishing the heart because the world of bound lights is the lower third of the heart which is the navel of Adam Kadmon.

 

Now let me remind you about the world of bound lights, the world of bound lights is the light that comes from the mouth of Adam Kadmon, the only place you could see the light of the world of bound lights is in this lower section of the heart which is his navel, because the light of the mouth is the weakest of all the lights and you could only see the light of the mouth where none of the other lights are shining. Okay, everybody okay? And let me remind you that the world of bound lights has only one vessel, the other worlds have ten vessels, and a light for each vessel, and each vessel has an inner light and a surrounding light. The first lights or the first place in which vessels appeared, is in the light from the mouth. There were no vessels higher than the mouth, there were no vessels showing yet, why? Because the light that's descending is, the word is rare, so fine, so thin, that it's not capable of forming a vessel, it would be like the air in this room, can you capture this air and make a vessel out of it, no. As the light descends it becomes more solid, and more course and more capable of being made into a, formed in to a vessel.

 

So the first time that we see a vessel formed out of the light, is with the light that comes out of the mouth of Adam Kadmon, and that light shines down here at the bottom of the heart which the Kabbalist call Adam Kadmon's navel. When the vessels first began to be formed initially there was only one vessel, ten lights, one vessel in the world of bound lights, all the lights were bound together, that's why it's called the world of bound lights, the world of the Akudim, Olam HaAkudim if I'm pronouncing it right. All the lights were stuck together because there was only one vessel, the lights had not yet differentiated out, they had not yet separated each light into its own vessel, and the circle that I drew here, and I just did it quickly, if you would like to review this, go back to the prior messages and look for the drawings on the world of bound lights, it's right in this series, I think it's the parts before this. One spherical vessel, all the lights in the earth. Then the lights of the eyes started to come out, now first of all remember that the lights that are coming out are rising up from the inside of Adam Kadmon, in our humanity a woman is pregnant, a baby, the fetus is inside of her, and the fetus comes out from between her legs. But remember the things of the animal world are the exact opposite of the things of the spiritual world, Adam Kadmon is reproducing as a spiritual man, so that which he's giving birth to is not going down, it's coming up and out, it's not going down and out.

 

So the lights of the Ayn Sof, that's in the midst of Adam Kadmon is rising within him, it's coming out of his ears, it's coming out of his nose, it's coming out of his mouth, and now it's coming out of his eyes. Now remember the reason for this for the light coming out of all Adam's parts, does anybody remember the reason for this? See the whole purpose of this outpouring of light is to form a visible creation, but the light of the Ayn Sof in its primitive state, well primitive to us, not primitive to the Ayn Sof, in its basic form is so powerful that nothing could stand, everything would be destroyed, see. In order to have a creation, that light of the Ayn Sof has to be weakened, and that's why the light is descending, it's getting weaker and weaker as it descends so that it could become more and more visible you see. So the light is coming out of Adam Kadmon and he is a filter, Adam Kadmon is a filter that quantifies the light, he says so much light can go out and then he closes the door, no more light, just like a dam in a river, so much water can go through and then they close the gate, no more water, see. That's what Adam Kadmon is, he is a quantifier of the light of God, for the purpose of manipulating that light and bringing it to a consistency whereby it could be formed into a visible creation. Everything that we know and that we don't know is formed from light, but this visible world is formed from light that is so course and low that everything has become solid and opaque, just like water becoming ice, you see. But it's still light, even the scientist know that.

 

Everything that we see is made of light that's become solid. So the light is coming out of Adam Kadmon, it's pouring out of his different orifices, and each light is designated with a particular function, just as when a fetus is being formed in a woman's womb, all the cells that come forth are differentiating in to liver cells and heart cells and blood cells, but when the fetus is first formed, there's only one kind of cell, one basic cell that differentiates into all different cells to form the body of the fetus. That is what we're talking about here. So the Ayn Sof originally streamed a portion of his light into the inside of Adam Kadmon, Adam Kadmon is now responsible for it, and he is releasing it into the empty space outside of himself in quantified measures with the specific purpose of forming into a visible creation. Does anybody have a question so far?

 

Okay, the higher the organ that the light is coming out of, the more powerful the light. Although I didn't draw it to well in this picture, the eyes are higher than the ears, the eyes are higher than the ears. So the light coming out of the eyes is the most powerful light, it is so powerful, that the light that comes out of the eyes has to come through a curtain, what we would call the pupils of the eyes. Otherwise that powerful light would destroy everything that it flowed over. Okay now remember this light of the eyes, those words light of the eyes, is talking about conscious beings, conscious beings, that's all I could tell you because I don't know what they were like myself. We're told the light that was coming out of Adam Kadmon's eyes, looked out. Can you imagine climbing up to the top of the statue of liberty and looking out of the eyes of the statue of liberty, and knowing that you're suppose to descend from that place, and saying where should I go, where should I land, where should I land when I get down there? This is the philosophy of Kabbalah at this point. Okay, this is Isaac Luria's revelation.

 

So the light looked out of the eyes, and the first we're told the first three Sefirot that came out of the eyes, the Keter, the Binah, and the Chokhmah were able to perceive the light of the ears. I don't have any explanation for this. I'm asking God to help me because I really don't receive this revelation at all but I do want to respect this, there has to be something to it from a great teacher such as Isaac Luria. This is what he says that the light from the eyes looked down and they were able to perceive the lights from the ears, and the lights from the ears remember is existing from the ears down to the beard, the bottom of the beard of Adam Kadmon. So we're told that the lights from the eyes realize that they should line up in three columns, and if you look down at the bottom of the drawing, you'll see that Keter, Binah, and Chokhmah are in their right place, Keter in the center, Binah in the left column, Chokhmah in the right column. Then the last, Da'at and the remaining seven Sefirot looked out of Adam Kadmon's eyes and they couldn't see the lights of the ears, I don't understand why, but they couldn't see the lights of the ears, and they didn't know where to place themselves, you see.

 

All that they, they couldn't see the light of the ears, they couldn't see the light of the nose which came down to the heart, all that they could see was the light of the mouth, which is the world of bound lights, and the world of bound lights had only one vessel. Everything, all the ten Sefirot were lumped together in one vessel. So the Da'at and the seven Sefirot align themselves with the world of bound lights, and when they pass down, they passed over Adam Kadmon's nose, over his mouth, over his heart, they passed over the world of bound lights and they came to their place, below the navel, which is the light coming out of the eyes is the light that forms the world of points, and they came down below Adam Kadmon's navel to form the world of points, we're told that the seven Sefirot, the seven lower Sefirot plus the Da'at lined up in a straight center column, just like the world of bound lights. Now my question is first of all, I don't understand why these lower lights couldn't see the light of Adam Kadmon's ears, but even if they couldn't, didn't they see the three Sefirot of the world of points that were already there, the Keter, the Binah and the Chokhmah. So maybe if a Kabbalist were here, he would have an answer for that, but I don't see any answer right now, and I just hope that I'm not being arrogant, I desire to not be arrogant, but it seems to me, let the Lord help me if I'm arrogant and teach me, but it seems to me that this is just a justification for the fall, that's how I see it.

 

Now this is what the notes, and this online teacher that we're studying with, he is taking his materials from Isaac Luria's material, from Chayyim Vital's material, and from other Rabbis, I don't believe this Rabbi has any original material, he is teaching the classic Kabbalah, does anyone not understand what I'm talking about? So he's just teaching us what he's been taught. To be honest with you, I just don't know enough Rabbis or enough Kabbalah students to even have an opinion as to how creative Kabbalah students are. We've all grown up in the church, everybody here, how many people do you know question the doctrine that you're taught in the church? Nobody, nobody questions the doctrine that you're taught in the church, you're taught it and you believe it. You're taught the rapture, you believe the rapture. You just believe everything that you're taught, there's no mechanism in the church that encourages you to question what you're being taught. So I honestly don't know if that mechanism exists in the Kabbalistic community today where people will study the works of great teachers like Isaac Luria and other teachers and have the nerve to question him.

 

And the Lord has instructed me to not call this Rabbi up and ask any questions, the Lord has told me any questions I have I'm to go to him, and as of this moment I have no explanation of the Lord as to the reasoning of the Kabbalist as to why the lower seven Sefirot couldn't see where the first three Sefirot were lined up in three columns, maybe there's an answer for it and maybe not, but this is the teaching of Isaac Luria, as presented by his student, Chayyim Vital. So I'm just going to read you what's on the board here. When the lower seven Sefirot, when the lower seven lights of Adam Kadmon's eyes looked out, they could only see the one vessel of the world of bound lights, so they did not know how to position themselves in three columns. The first three Sefirot of the world of points had access to the light of the ears which is understanding, so they positioned themselves correctly in three columns, Keter, Chokhmah, and Binah. The world of bound lights has only one vessel with ten lights in it, I told you that. The lower seven Sefirot of the light of the eyes copy the formation of the world of bound lights in one single middle column instead of three columns.

 

Chesed should be in the right column, Gevurah, should be in the left column, Netzach should be in the right column, and Hod should be in the left column, but they're not, all those Sefirot that I just named are all in the center column. Does anyone not understand what I just said here? Now to finish up the paragraph that we're working on, our online teacher says, this lack of vision, what lack of vision? The lack of vision, the lights came out of the eyes, but they didn't recognize that they should be lined up in three columns, this lack of vision or this lack of understanding is what caused the vessels to emanate improperly, and improper emanation is in a straight line rather than in three columns. This improper emanation is what caused the shattering of the vessels. Now remember each one of these Sefirot is a vessel with light in it, the Sefirot is just a container. Well I don't know what they were like in those days, I know that we're the vessels, so I know that the vessels are conscious, I don't know anything about personality or consciousness or what kind of beings these vessels were at this high place in this high time in the creation, I don't know, but they were conscious vessels that had no light of their own, and then there was light that filled the vessels. So Isaac Luria's doctrine is, and I know I've taught this before, let me review it for you, is that first the vessels came out and formed this straight line, then when the light poured out of, now this gets confusing let me try and clarify this for you, the vessels are made of light. So the first light that comes out is course thick light that forms the vessel, then the lights that are to be the inner lights that are to fill the vessel come out next, and Isaac Luria's revelation is that the measure of light that was enough to fill eight vessels, Da'at, Chesed, Gevurah, Tiferet, Netzach, Hod Yesod , and Malkhut, those eight portions of light all dumped into the Da'at. Actually they all dumped into the Keter first.

 

Keter was able to take, I'm sorry I have to say that over, the light for all of these eleven vessels, the ten Sefirot plus the Da'at, the total collective light dumped into the Keter, and the Keter was able to take his portion and pass the rest on that's enough light for ten vessels, he passed all that on to the Chokhmah, the Chokhmah was power enough or strong enough to take its portion and pass the rest on to Binah. So Binah received enough light for nine vessels. Binah took what she needed and passed the collective amount of light for eight vessels on to the Da'at. And Isaac Luria's revelation is that Da'at couldn't hold all that light, and Da'at shattered, instead of taking what it needed and passing on the rest it collapsed under the weight.

 

So all the light fell into Chesed, neither could Chesed contain it and so on all down the line, each of the vessels shattered because they weren't able to take what they needed and pass the rest on. And Isaac Luria's revelation as to why they could not take what they needed and pass the rest on is this, that just as an example if you would look at the three columns in Adam Kadmon's face on drawing #4, the teaching is that when the Sefirot are in three columns they balance each other out. I know that I've done this if you want to go over your old drawings or your old messages. Binah has a certain quality, Binah is understanding, Chokhmah is wisdom, and they balance each other out, it's possible to, just to bring this down to the human level, it's possible to be too understanding. What is the fault that arises out of too much understanding? You begin to justify unGodly behavior if you're too understanding. So understanding and wisdom balance each other out. Wisdom, what is the fault of wisdom? Sometimes I know I go through this, sometimes when you have too much wisdom, you tend to have no patience for the people that don't know what you know. So these two qualities balance themselves out.

 

And they come to well Keter is the middle column of Binah and Chokhmah, and then you have Chesed and Gevurah, Chesed is unlimited unrestricted giving, and we all know that it's no good to give unrestrictively to somebody because then that person becomes dependent on you to give unrestrictively and be the only giver weakens the recipient. So the opposite of Chesed is Gevurah, which is judgment, which means that at the point that continuous giving begins to raise up a wrong thoughts and wrong responses in the recipient, judgment falls. So this is the principle of the ten Sefirot, Netzach, to be honest with you I wasn't prepared to do this tonight, and I'm having a little trouble remembering it, I forgot exactly what Netzach does, but I know that Netzach and Hod working together puts the carnal mind under the mind of Christ and brings the whole vessel in to the mind of Christ. Because the left side is judgment and Hod is on the left side, the carnal mind is the judgment of fallen man. So Netzach works and balances out Hod brings forth repentance and brings forth the middle column in that man in the person of Tiferet is Christ Jesus, merciful judgment, judgment that teaches you to live righteously so that you don't have to be punished. So this is Isaac Luria's doctrine, because down here in the world of points all of the Sefirot were one underneath each other, they couldn't counteract each other and balance each other and therefore they shattered, but that's not what the Lord told us, does anybody remember what the Lord told us, maybe you've all forgotten by now.(End of Tape 1)

 

Tape 2

 

The Lord told us that all this glory, all these emanations of the lights of God were pouring into all of these Sefirot down here in the world of points from Da'at through Yesod, and then Yesod contained all of this glory and married Malkhut and gave her all of this glory but Malkhut was so enraged that she was the essential female, which means she had no one to pass this glory on to, each of these other Sefirot above her, Da'at, Chesed, Gevurah, Tiferet Netzach, Hod, and Yesod, they were all female to the Sefirot above them, they received from the Sefirot above them, but they turned around and they were male, they were able to give to the Sefirot underneath them, and the giver is a male activity, giving is a male activity and receiving is a female activity. Malkhut received all this glory but had no opportunity to be male, to turn around and to give it to someone underneath her, and this is where the rebellion occurred in Malkhut.

 

And I you know everything that we talk about here, we should be able to see in human nature. I see this in human nature, I see the potential for it in myself, the more you get the more you want. People who have everything children who have received everything from their parents, they have wealth, the best schools, the best clothing, houses, cars, boats, and they're not satisfied, they're not satisfied because that is our fallen nature. So that fallen nature manifested in Malkhut, you see, the fallen nature or the qualities of the fallen nature were always present from the beginning, but they had not yet been manifested you see. Adam Kadmon was bringing forth, well actually it's Abba and Imma, father and mother within Adam Kadmon were bringing forth Ze'ir Anpin, the man who, the spiritual man who has generated all of the generations of Adam after him, we call him Christ Jesus today.

 

The qualities that are in our fallen nature were present from the beginning, but Ze'ir Anpin or at that time Adam, I'll say Adam because that's how the teaching came forth in the doctrine of Christ, Adam was controlling those qualities, they could not be acted out. Now we know that mortal man which we are has the potential for everything known to man. That makes me a murderer because I have the potential under the right circumstances to murder, but I haven't murdered anybody, see. So all of the qualities all of those potentials were present in Adam, but they have not been acted out yet, because righteousness was present also, the imputed righteousness that was given to him by Adam Kadmon or according to the doctrine of Christ by Jehovah you know, that righteousness that was imputed to Adam was restraining his potential to be a sinner, but the potential was always there.

 

So we see this potential in the Malkhut of the world of points. She had it all, she had all of the glory that was pouring out of Adam Kadmon and it was given to her for the purpose of forming a visible world in the image of Adam Kadmon, she had it all. There was only one thing that she was lacking if you can call it a lack, there was no one for her to be a big shot to.

 

There was no one for her to rule over, and she didn't like her position. Does anybody remember what she did? What she did was, she took all, she had all of this power, she had the collective power of the lights of all of the seven Sefirot above her, she was very powerful. All of this light was given to her, all of this power was given to her to form a creation, but she turned around and she turned into a weapon, and she made herself male to the Sefirah above her, and the Sefirah above Malkhut is Yesod her husband. So Malkhut turned around and acted as a male towards her husband, and she took all of this glory that was given to her to build a creation and she turned it into an atom bomb and she blasted her husband above her, and she caused the shattering of all the vessels above her. This was the big bang, this happening in the spiritual caused the big bang in the material plane that gave rise to our physical universe, and this is the revelation of Christ centered Kabbalah that the Lord Jesus has brought forth here.

 

Now before we went out to dinner this morning, I asked the Lord a question and I asked him to give me the answer in time to preach it tonight, if he's spoken it to me I haven't heard it, but I will tell you what my question was, and if it comes out in this message fine and if it doesn't we have to accept that. This is my question, Lord according to the Christ centered Kabbalah doctrine that you've given us, what I just laid out as to why the vessels shattered, does anybody not understand that I just gave you an alternate explanation as to why the vessels shattered, Isaac Luria's doctrine said, look at this, it's the exact opposite, the carnal mind is always the exact opposite of the Christ mind. Isaac Luria said all the light flowed into these vessels and they couldn't contain the vessel it was too heavy, they couldn't take what they needed and pass on the rest, so they all shattered and broke.

 

Christ centered Kabbalah says, oh no, they all did what they were suppose to do, but when it got down here to Malkhut, she went into such a rage of rebellion that she had no one to be male to, that she turned around and used all that power that was given to her to build a creation as a weapon, although I don't believe that she intended to hurt the Sefirot above her, she just wanted to act like a man, and there was no one underneath her, so she shot all her energy up instead of down and all of these vessels above her shattered. Do you hear this? According to Isaac Luria, the light came in from the top and caused the shattering, according Christ centered Kabbalah, the energy from the bottom was redirected back up where it came from and caused the destruction or the shattering of the vessels. Does anyone not understand what I said?

 

The analogy to the human body is the reversal of the flow of the blood. Do you know if your blood flow could be caused to turn around and flow upward instead of downward, it would kill you. Why would it kill you because the blood would go back to the heart without being purified. So everyone is with me right, are you with me? So this is the question that I asked the Lord, I said Lord I believe that what you told me for Christ centered Kabbalah is true, so then explain to me why these eight Sefirot lined up in a straight column, why didn't they line up in three columns? He hasn't answered me yet. Or what's coming to me, because according to Isaac Luria, if they had lined up in three columns, this wouldn't have happened, but according to Christ centered Kabbalah lining up in a straight column, the only problem that came forth from these Sefirot lining up in a straight column is that they were vulnerable.

 

Look at this example up here in the face, if the Sefirot had lined up in three columns, Malkhut's rebellion would not have touched Netzach, Chesed, Chokhmah, Hod, Gevurah or Binah. Her rebellion would have just touched Yesod, Tiferet, and I don't think it could have reached Keter, it would have just touched Yesod and Tiferet.

 

 

This is what I hear the Lord telling me, the Sefirot of the world of points did line up in three columns, they did line up in three columns it's not correct that they lined up in a single line. So look at the example that I have in Adam Kadmon's face okay. Malkhut rebelled and she shot her energy back up towards Yesod and Yesod it was the force of the explosion that attacked Tiferet, are you all following me, do you understand what I'm saying? What is Tiferet? Tiferet is the balance of Chesed and Gevurah, Tiferet is holding the balance of Chesed and Gevurah, and also, and I think Yesod, I think this is right, is holding the balance of Yesod and Hod. So when Malkhut rebelled and attacked the middle column, the central column was destroyed and the creation went out of balance, the creation went into a left column and a right column only, do you understand what I'm saying. Let me put it on the board, okay, are there any questions on this drawing? Okay let's take a picture and I'll put this new principle on the board.

 

Drawing #6, I am showing you, it's the same drawing of Adam Kadmon, but I've changed that lower section of it where the world of points is, and I've shown the ten Sefirot of the world of points in three columns. On the left side of the board I give you the doctrine of the Christ centered Kabbalah, and on the right side of he board we have the doctrine of the Lurianic Kabbalah. Christ centered Kabbalah says that all the ten Sefirot of the world of points as well as Da'at which is knowledge emanated properly in three columns, right left and center. Lurianic Kabbalah says that the seven lower Sefirot of the world of points emanated incorrectly in one center column, as you could see on the right side of the board. Lurianic Kabbalah says the light that poured into the vessels of the world of points was not distributed properly, and therefore the vessels shattered. Christ centered Kabbalah says Oh no, the light emanated and was dispensed and dispersed perfectly, but Malkhut rebelled and made herself male to her husband, causing the reversal of the spiritual blood flow of the creation which is death. I don't believe Malkhut intended to kill anybody, but in her rebellion, she did not look at the long range results of her behavior.

 

Drawing #7, on the left side, I marked it 7a, I show you the Sefirot of the world of points in three columns. Please note that the middle column signifies peace, whenever a middle column appears it signifies the reconciliation of the two opposing sides. Now we can each test our self to see the degree of the construction of the middle column within ourselves, by measuring the conflict that we have within ourselves. Now if you don't have any conflict yourself, either you're fully at peace because the middle column is fully established in you or your right side is dead or not functioning, and your left side which is your old man lives fully through you, but once you come to the Lord, you should be in conflict, because your old man should want to do one thing and your new man should want to do something else, that's the conflict that Paul talks about. And the peace that we are promised, salvation means peace, that peace is that Christ Jesus comes and becomes our middle column who mediates, Christ Jesus is the mediator, he mediates between our left and our right side and he rules in righteousness. In other words Christ Jesus gives his strength to the right side so that the right side can prevail over our left side, and then we live in the peace that comes from righteousness. That's the whole principle of the middle column. The world doesn't have a middle column, the world doesn't have a right column, they just have the left column, the fallen world has the left column.

 

So as I told you when I expounded on the earlier drawing, Malkhut rebelled, this is the sin that brought the fall and the destruction, Malkhut reversed the spiritual blood flow of the middle column which is Yesod and Tiferet above her, and also Da'at and caused, I'm sorry, Malkhut reverses the blood flow, the Sefirot of the middle column, that's Yesod and Tiferet, and Da'at, which is not a Sefirot, all shatter, no more middle column the creation goes out of balance, and another way of saying out of balance is that the creation went into chaos. Tiferet the balance between Chesed and Gevurah, releases these two Sefirot to their respective extremes, Yesod goes to the right, Malkhut goes to the left. There is no longer a middle column, the creation has now destabilized and is in chaos. The opposite of chaos is order. When the middle column is firmly in place, ruling in righteousness and judging the potential to sin that every man has. The creation and each one of us is a creation or a world, the creation comes into order. When the middle column is dispersed, if you don't have the righteousness of God ruling in you, your personal world goes into chaos, personal individuals go into chaos, this country right now is going in to chaos. We talked about this over dinner, the whole western world is destabilizing because Christ Jesus the central column is dissolving because of sin in the western world. And what does it mean to go into chaos? It means to go back to a primordial state, it means to go back to an unformed state. So here we see the light is no longer flowing, it's really important to hear this, the light is no longer flowing up and down. Remember the whole principle of forming the creation is that the light came out of Adam Kadmon's eyes, and it was flowing from Keter to Chokhmah to Binah to Da'at to Chesed to Gevurah, to Tiferet, to Netzach, to Yesod, to Hod to Malkhut.

 

The light was flowing from the top to the bottom and when the light flows from the top to the bottom, the vessel has immortality. But the light stopped flowing, the ten Sefirot plus Da'at of the world of points destabilized and now the left column is struggling with the right column, and there is no way for the light to flow down from above, because each Sefirah that gets the light is trying to keep it all for itself, and we see warfare in the high realm of the world of points, warfare amongst the Sefirot. I suggest to you that these are the immortals that the Lord told us about years ago. I could never understand who they were, these are the immortals, these are very high spiritual beings, and they've become evil, or they became evil. And Malkhut is left in darkness why? Because the light is not coming down, these high spiritual beings, these immortals they're fighting for the light for themselves. I've told you on other occasions, all of the other worlds are starving.

 

All of the creatures of all of the worlds visible and invisible are looking for food. All of the biting insects that can't really hurt us are sucking our blood, we're raising animals to kill them to eat them, animals in the jungle are killing other animals, spiritual entities in other planes are feeding off of the entities in this plane. The whole creation is consuming itself because the flow of light from above has been cut off, and I've been telling you that for a long time, and here it is right here, Malkhut destroyed the middle column, the light is no longer flowing up and down, because in order for the light to get to Malkhut it has to go through Tiferet, and Yesod, it has to go through a middle column. The middle column is destroyed, the light from above is no longer flowing in the creation, and the Sefirot of the world of points are fighting for what light there is, they're fighting with each other continuously, and this I suggest to you is the world revealed through Roman and Greek mythology, it's the world of points, it is still very much in existence, this world receives a deadly blow, when Christ came on the scene, but it's rising again.

 

We all know that Greece is rising again right in this country, they have a replica of a pantheon. Paganism is rising again as Christianity becomes weak, paganism is rising again, and all that, that means is that the world of points which was repressed by Jesus Christ is now coming to the surface, because the manifestation of Jesus Christ is through Christians and the church is weak and sick today. We're so weak and sick we're on the verge of dying, and therefore the pagans, paganism and the immortals that promote paganism are breaking their bands and rising. Where are they rising? They're rising in the minds of the people, they're rising in the minds of Christians who have thrown off what they've been taught, well they're throwing it off because they really haven't been taught properly. On the right side of the board Lurianic Kabbalah says that the Sefirot of the world of points fell down into the worlds below which were not yet prepared to be inhabited, and I suggest to you that, that is not so, the Lord has told me otherwise. Christ centered Kabbalah says that the world of points is now a place where the gods of that world war against each other and manifest the personalities of mortal men. This is the world revealed through Roman and Greek mythology, this world will come under the authority of the Lord Jesus and cease to exist in its present deformed state, but it is very much in existence today, the world of points.

 

Now brethren is this not the principle of witchcraft? Whatever we know about modern day witchcraft, I know right here in this country, there are a lot of ethnic groups in this country that very much believe in witchcraft. Someone will curse them, someone will be jealous of a marriage or want somebody's husband, they'll go and pay a witch to curse them, this is happening right in this country. As soon as the woman finds out that there's a curse operating against her marriage, she goes to another witch, someone who has more power who can break the curse. Here we see a manifestation right in our world of powerful spiritual beings vying for spiritual power, and the prize is to the strongest one, not to the most righteous one, to the strongest one. That is merely an expression of the world of points in our physical world. The worlds below, the worlds of creation, formation, and action, came into existence when the rebellious Malkhut joined herself to the egg of Adam Kadmon's ovary, and became the Serpent who generated our mortal world. These lower worlds, they're not because the Sefirot of the world of points fell down. You see, do you know what happened with Lurianic Kabbalah? Isaac Luria saw certain realities and however it happened, an explanation of these realities came forth in his mind that the Lord is now telling us is not accurate.

 

See Isaac Luria, he saw that the worlds below were inhabited, and he came to the conclusion that it was the world of points fell down, because he didn't have the revelation that the Serpent turned around and fertilized Adam Kadmon's ovary, and I will do a drawing #8 and show you that. We had that teaching on a previous message but it wasn't a part of this series, so I will remind you about that teaching. As long as this tape last I won't go to a second tape, this has been a incredible day and I'm very drained, but I will finish this thought, but I won't go to a second tape. The gods of the world of points desire to rule over our mortal world and the creatures who inhabit it, this mortal world, we mortal men, we are the creatures that inhabit it, so the gods of the world of points desire to rule over our mortal world and over men, but Jesus, Hallelujah, but Jesus or we're finished, we're goners if it wasn't for Jesus. And thank God he forgives us for our sins and our ignorance, and everything else that we do and think, but Jesus. Because of Jesus all is well. Are there any questions about this board? Any questions about anything that I've said? Okay before you take the picture, I want to read you from the notes of our on line course, and I hope to show you the contrast here. I'm still on page five, one two three, I'm in the fourth paragraph and our online teacher is saying, once again that because the Sefirot of the world of points could not see the light of the ears, that they emanated in a straight line, he says in essence, the light of the ears was the spiritual soul and the source of the light of the Nikudim which is the world of points.

 

When the lower Sefirot of the Nikudim lost sight of their source, when they lost sight of the light of the ears, they lost their connection with themselves. Okay now I agree that the Sefirot of the world of points lost connection with themselves because they lost sight of the light of the ears. They lost connection with themselves because of the rebellion of Malkhut. They lost the connection with themselves that instructed them and gave them the spiritual power to receive the light from above and pass it on properly, that's how they lost sight of themselves. What that means is they lost sight of their other self, their other self, the place from where the light was coming down. So we see, that's the point that I was just trying to make to you that there is a truth here, that they lost sight of themselves, but the explanation for why they lost sight of themselves, that they couldn't see the light of the ears is not the answer, because the light of the ears is understanding. So this online course which is teaching as far as I know Isaac Luria's doctrine, is saying that the Sefirot of the world of points got all messed up because they didn't have understanding, but Christ centered Kabbalah says no, they got all messed up because of sin. Rebellion, because of rebellion, not because they didn't have understanding you see. And it's interesting because there is somebody who studies with this ministry who will probably be hearing this tape that I have just gone through this issue with.

 

She was having a problem repenting and she was telling me that if she could just understand how what she was doing was sin, she would repent, and I had to explain to her that there is no where in the Scripture that I could find where we are commanded to understand and repent, we are just commanded to repent. If you can understand it fine, if you can't understand it repent anyway. So to make understanding a condition of repentance, it's spiritual suicide, as she now understands. And here we see in Lurianic Kabbalah, this very rational of the carnal mind, which says that disaster happened because of a lack of understanding, no, disaster happened because of rebellion.

 

Lack of understanding is no justification for disobedience you see. I believe that the Lord wants us to understand, but it's not at all uncommon that we do not understand until after we obey. First you obey, then you get the understanding, that's the law of God, the mind of man and the pride of man says, I must understand before I obey. You're slitting your spiritual throat. The Lord will never ever comply with that commandment, he will never comply with a commandment or a demand from us. He speaks you obey and then hopefully at some time in the future you understand, and that's how you live and not die. So to me this is one more witness that the carnal mind of a great teacher was very much involved in this Lurianic doctrine. You see I believe Isaac Luria was a great teacher because he heard from God and brought forth this whole concept of Adam Kadmon the primordial human, and the light coming out and being filtered from the eyes and the ears and the nose, and I've heard a lot of good teaching from Rabbi Isaac Luria, I've been really blessed by a lot of what I've read, and I have just touched with my pinky toe the beginning of his writings.

 

The beginning of the writing of Isaac Luria is the tree of life, and there are seven volumes of the tree of life, I am now working on volume one for close to two years. And after the tree of life there are many more of his writings, so I've barely touched on the beginning of what he's written, and I believe that a lot of it is of God, but a lot of it is not, so we see a mixture, and a mixture is very dangerous, because unless we have the ability to distinguish between what is truth, or what is truly the mind of Christ and what is of the carnal mind, if we cannot distinguish between the two, we swallow down everything and that's very dangerous to our spiritual life. But the Lord God today is drawing that distinction through Christ centered Kabbalah, and we are, I am absolutely blessed for a lot of this information that I'm getting through Rabbi Isaac Luria, I thank God for it, but it is extremely and severely interlaced with the doctrine of the carnal mind. So thank God for Jesus who is releasing the truth from this mass, this incredible mass of information. Does anybody have anything to say, or any questions?

 

Alright we will then take a picture and I will do a drawing #8 just to remind you of what happened when the Serpent turned downward and fertilized the egg of Adam Kadmon's ovary. Praise God.

 

COMMENT: Sheila I don't understand who the immortals are?

 

PASTOR VITALE: Okay, I think that you do not understand that the Sefirot are conscious beings, do you understand, that these Sefirot here, Chokhmah, Binah, Gevurah, Chesed, Tiferet, Netzach, Hod, Yesod and Malkhut are conscious beings, very high spiritual beings, they're as high as the world of points, that's very high, and they are the immortals. See when they appeared as three columns and the middle column existed, they were manifesting as a unification as one expression of Adam Kadmon who is in the image of God, but when the middle column was destroyed and they broke apart, they divided and started manifesting individually and they became evil. Do you understand, did I answer your question, you asked me if all of the immortals were evil. Well from this point of view they're all evil but of course Jesus is an immortal and he is not evil, okay. But as far as I know, as of the teaching today and there is so much I don't know okay, but as far as to what's coming forth tonight, the immortals of the world of points are evil. I don't anything about the other worlds yet. Okay you have a question? Okay.

 

COMMENT: You had said once that Keter, Binah, and Chokhmah could never come down, and so is that group now entirely different from this group if they're the evil immortals?

 

PASTOR VITALE: Is what group? This group up here?

 

COMMENT: Up above this is the world of points in a configuration of three columns. Below it's the world of points, okay, but I understand what your question is. Let me draw another drawing to answer that okay. Drawing #8 is up there in answer to a question that was asked, and I'm trying to show you all of the worlds, the world of Adam Kadmon, the world of bound lights, the world of points, the world of creation, the world of formation and the world of action. The question was, I thought that Keter and Chokhmah never descended. It's the Keter and Chokhmah of the world of Adam Kadmon that never descends okay, and then the world of bound lights came forth from Adam Kadmon, and the world of points came forth, and the world of points is the place where the creation in God's image stopped because of the rebellion. The creation that was coming forth in God's image stopped at the world of points because of Malkhut's rebellion. And the creation went off in another direction, it became the Serpent's creation, therefore all of the lower worlds, the world of creation, formation, and action did not come forth in the image of the Ayn Sof but came forth in the image of the Serpent.

 

The lower worlds were formed by the Serpent's union with the egg of Adam Kadmon's ovary. I will show that to you on a drawing #9, and then I hope to finish up these notes because everything else that's written in these notes is just the doctrine of the Lurianic Kabbalah that we have just blasted to smithereens. So I'm basically just going to read through it and make some brief comments to finish off lesson 7. Are there any questions on this board? Okay let's take a picture and let's finish up here.

 

Drawing #9, I have divided the board into, well the first section, the first upper section shows the outside of the world of points that's pretty much the same material that I've had on previous drawings for this message, and I indicate that Malkhut reverses the blood flow to make herself male, reversing the blood flow makes herself male. Remember there was no one underneath Malkhut for her to pass the energy on to, so she turned around and passed it back to her husband, Yesod. She made herself a male to her husband, and the result of that rebellion against her female role caused the shattering of the Sefirot and the shattered Sefirot became evil, the evil immortals of the disfigured world of creation down here. Now let me remind you that the shattering of the vessels is called the death of the vessels, but it does not mean that the vessels ceased to exist.

 

You may remember that the Serpent's seduction of Eve in the Garden had to do with this exact principle, Elohim said to the woman, okay, you will surely die if you eat of that tree, and it was one Hebrew word that meant you will die to your immortality. The Serpent said to the woman, you will surely not die, you will surely not cease to exist, you see. So the shattered vessels did not cease to exist, but they died because they were cut off from the light of God which is immortality. Is everybody okay with that, do you understand that. So the shattered vessels, they didn't cease to exist, they died to the righteousness and to the immortality of God, and they became the evil immortals of the world of creation. The Lord told us about the immortals years ago, maybe four or five years ago, and I never fully understood who they were. Today I understand who they are. And then the evil immortals brought forth the world of formation where we see Cain and Abel, with Abel dead under Cain's power and this present world of action that we live in today where death is played out everyday, everyday we have a witness that this world is hell and death, everyday somebody dies, everyday somebody's raped, everyday somebody's in pain, this is hell and death in this world.

 

So the creation in the image of the Ayn Sof stopped at the world of points, the rebellion stopped the creation and turned towards other side, it stopped the creation in the image of the Ayn Sof, it reversed it, it reversed the blood flow you see, and the creation has come forth in the image of the Serpent, and just to remind you of what the Serpent is, I'm showing you in the second section here, both the inner and the outer aspect of the world of points, the inner aspect of the world of points is the egg of Adam Kadmon's ovary and these were the simple aspects of the light that had not yet come out of Adam Kadmon, they were very naive, and the outer aspects of the world of points is the light that's born of AB, and SaG. The outer aspects of the world of points is wisdom.

 

So Malkhut which is in the outer most Sefirot pierced through, you see up here in the first section, she pierced through Yesod and Tiferet and she went right through and got the egg of Adam Kadmon's ovary and fertilized it, and that union is what the Serpent is. The Malkhut of the outer aspect joined to the egg of Adam Kadmon's ovary, it's the Serpent, and the Serpent is the ruler of this world. After that unholy union took place which was the complete reversal of that which would have produced life in this world, the world of creation formation and action of the other side came into existence. And this is the Christ centered Kabbalah that the Lord has given us. As far I know none of this is being taught in the traditional Kabbalah.

 

I never heard of it anyway, this is all come forth by revelation and as far as I know this doctrine does not exist in Kabbalistic circles. Are there any questions on this issue? Okay now I would like to finish up this lesson 7, we have about a page and a half of notes pretty much all of which is reiterating or expounding upon the doctrine of Lurianic Kabbalah which the Lord is blowing to smithereens. Therefore I'm going to just read these paragraphs onto the tape and make some brief comments, and we will finish up lesson 7. Praise the Lord. We still on page five of the notes, and we'll start with paragraph five, this small paragraph, the second from the bottom. Our online teacher says, "remember now that SaG is the power of intellect and SaG is Binah, that's the power of intellect. In essence the lower seven Sefirot including the Da'at of the Nikudim which is the points, did not have proper intellectual thought, that's because they couldn't see the light of the ears, they did not have proper intellectual thought.

 

This caused them to emanate in an unbalanced form which led the creation of chaos and eventually evil. Now we've just spent a couple of hours showing what led to the creation of chaos, it was rebellion, and what led to evil.

 

What led to the evil of Malkhut was the inherit potential to manifest envy and rebellion, I don't if I commenting on it on this message, we have these principles on another message, I don't remember what we called it to tell you the truth, but envy was present, Malkhut was envious of her husband above her, and of all the Sefirot above her, she was envious that she could not be male to anybody and therefore she rebelled against her male role. And the Genesis of evil itself is that evil was present in the creation from the beginning. The Scripture clearly says that the Lord, he created evil, and the purpose that he created evil is that this is a creation of contrast to recognize good there has to be evil, but the evil he intended and designed the creation in a manner that the evil would contained by the good. That's exactly what we're talking about when we talk about the balancing of the Sefirot.

 

See Gevurah is the Sefirot that has the real potential to be harsh judgment, and that harsh judgment when the middle column is destroyed and the right column is weaker than the left column, Gevurah comes down and manifests its harshness through Malkhut and that's who Satan is. Gevurah manifesting through Malkhut in harsh judgment. Satan is the enforcer of the sowing and reaping judgment, you see. So the Genesis of evil then is that Adam Kadmon created evil, because this creation is a creation of opposite, but the evil was designed to be contained and controlled by the good, Chesed is suppose to be controlling Gevurah, and when Chesed is controlling Gevurah, Tiferet comes into the center column, that's the whole purpose of the middle column, but Malkhut destroyed the middle column, she destroyed the balance. Then the left side became stronger than the right side, and the whole creation became evil, because, oh boy I'm getting into all this stuff here. I'm not going to do that tonight, I can't I just have to finish this up we'll do it another time. Okay let's go on, okay the last paragraph on page five, This same lesson applies to us, especially to those students of Kabbalah who endeavor to learn this material without a solid background in Talmud, and the observance of the Mitzvah, because one's mind is not prepared and one's body is not sanctified in holiness through the observance of the Mitzvah, when the light of the Kabbalah comes into such a one's mind, it inevitably causes that person psychological harm. Such a person cannot possibly understand the Kabbalah correctly due to their lack of proper spiritual alignment.

 

This caused the reception of the divine light to become twisted and warped. This is why certain people who study this material apply it in evil and perverted ways, ways never intended by either God or his servants. The holy Rabbis therefore, I'm sorry his servants the holy Rabbis. Therefore all the Kabbalistic cults and missionaries out there who are teaching false material are in essence causing again the shattering of the vessels. Remember three of those broken vessels are the Da'at, Tiferet, and Malkhut. Therefore the shattering occurs in the mind, that's Da'at, the heart, Tiferet, and the body, Malkhut. Now of course this is the teaching of this on line teacher it's probably the teaching of Isaac Luria that you have to be keeping the law to safely study Kabbalah, but we know that we don't have to keep the law, what we have to keep is our relationship.(end of tape 2)

 

Tape 3

 

So we see that the seed in the Garden is called Adam and the Serpent of wisdom spoke to the outer shell of the seed, which is female, the female aspect of the simple Adam. And mortal humanity, the majority of mortal humanity relate on that very level. I talk to your shell, your shell talks to my shell, and I find that when my inner man, when the male aspect of me tries to communicate with the average person, they flee from me. Most of the time they don't even know what's bothering them they just become afraid or uncomfortable, and they excuse themselves and walk away. I had to learn that a long time ago, that I can only speak about these deep issues to people who I know are receptors to these discussions. To everyone on the outside, I talk about the weather, I talk about politics, I talk about decorating, I talk about my grandchildren, I don't talk about male issues to the average person, they flee from me. So we see that this high doctrine once again is being manifested in the lives of humanity. The Serpent of wisdom spoke to the outer shell of the simple Adam in the Garden, which is Adam Kadmon's ovary. And when that outer shell succumbed to the Serpent the whole seed succumbed because it's impossible for the outer shell to succumb and not the inner nucleus, to not succumb. But for all intents and purposes, this female, the woman that was seduced by the Serpent of wisdom was the simple Adam. There was this female aspect, can you understand that, and that's something that is not well known in the church, I never understood it myself. It was the simple Adam, the potential for the many membered civilized man that is destined to inhabit the creation, he was the one that was destroyed you see.

 

So we see that there were two events, the Serpent rebelled, she turned upward and killed her husband, she not only killed Yesod, Yesod is the male organ of Ze'ir Anpin, so she killed Ze'ir Anpin, her husband, who was the Adam of wisdom you see, her husband was the Adam of wisdom. Remember the Serpent turned around, she shot all of her energy into Yesod who was the immediate contact with her, and Ze'ir Anpin, the Adam of wisdom is Chesed through Yesod, okay, she killed her husband and thus we see, not only did the world of points come into existence, but we see through all antiquity and pagan religions, the mother and child without the husband, because the Serpent killed her husband, fertilized the womb of Adam Kadmon's ovary, and brought forth a child in her image, therefore through all antiquity and paganism, in China, in, all over, wherever you go you see the symbol of the mother and child, because that is the union that has brought forth this corrupt creation. So therefore all you see that although I would have to say they were separate events, they were simultaneous events like several shots from a gun, bang Malkhut rebelled, bang she killed Ze'ir Anpin, who was the Adam of wisdom, bang the big bang exploded, okay, but I would say even before that, bang she killed her husband the Adam of wisdom, bang she turned around and fertilized her own, the seed of her own world of points, bang there was a big explosion, and the material world came into existence because of the incestuous fertilization.

 

So it was a series of events but those series of events should really be taken as one whole event, called the rebellion of the Serpent, caused the big bang brought forth the material world, and the tormented souls that indwell it. Did I answer your question? Do you have another one, okay. Before we go on does anybody else here have a question about what I just said? Is it clear? Okay.

 

COMMENT: One more question, well I might have more, am I to understand that all this happened almost simultaneously about a trillion years ago?

 

PASTOR VITALE: No, because all of this happened before time began. Time only began with the big bang.

 

COMMENT: So whatever that time of the big bang was, both of these more or less happened, all of these events happened at the same time. The reason I'm asking that is that I know that has to be because in Genesis it says I don't know in the early chapters, and God told Adam to replenish the earth. So if you're going to replenish, it has to mean that it was at one time. So what was all that time until Adam came about?

 

PASTOR VITALE: What was happening?

 

COMMENT: Other beings or that they were to be ministered to? What transpired?

 

PASTOR VITALE: I don't know, it could be that the big bang came into existence, it could be that Cain and Abel appeared immediately or it could be that it took trillions of years for Cain and Abel to appear, it could be that there is a truth to evolution, but it's not taught completely right, there is a truth to physical evolution, what is lacking from Darwin's doctrine is the union of the product of the physical evolution and the spiritual man. The spiritual man descended into and became enmeshed in the animal life of creation. That's where Darwin loses his revelation, and that's why they can never find the missing link between the monkey and the human being because it's a spiritual link, that at some point the spiritual man descended into matter, and that's where man came from you see. But I honestly don't know how long, once time began, how long it took for man to appear, I just don't know. But I do know that there are teachings that say that there were other races before humanity as we know it. I do believe that, that's probably true, but I don't really have any personal information from the Lord, except in my spirit, I believe that it's true, but I'm not equipped to expound on it right now. I've read about it but I'm not equipped to expound on it right now.

 

And I do know that the race before the flood was not humanoid, I mean it was not Homo sapiens, the people that existed on the other side of the flood were not Homo sapiens, we are Homo sapiens. So there probably were other races, there was probably a race of Cain, and there was probably a race of Abel, but I don't really want to get into that now because you know it's really not this message here. Did you have another question? Okay, anybody else? Since we've just put a new tape in there, I will take a few minutes to expound on this issue of the different races. This is not easy to explain but I will try.

 

Listen the flesh of human beings is like spiritual clay, it can be molded into anything that the indwelling spirit wants to mold it into, and depending upon the righteousness of the indwelling spirit, this outer man will either be immortal or mortal, or corrupt or not corrupt, this outer man is an image impressed in the clay, and it's an image of the indwelling true man, you see. Therefore, and this is a big mystery, it is possible for a righteous race to exist, a race of righteous beings, let's say the descendants of Seth, who existed on the other side of the flood, I don't know what they looked like, they started out as righteous beings and we're told that their heart, according to the doctrine of Christ, Cain rose up and overtook Abel and killed Abel again, and that race of righteous beings became evil. Now when this happens, we've talked about this a lot in the doctrine of Christ in our messages of the doctrine of Christ. When a person's mind begins to turn, the person doesn't know what's happening to them, it's a seduction, it's little by little, it's in the thoughts of your mind, what you believed was wrong, you now believe it's justifiable, and it's a step by step downward walk that ends in the utter destruction, and by the time that the person realizes that they've been seduced away from the true faith, from their relationship with Jesus Christ, it's too late to turn back. I've seen it happen time and time again.

 

The seduction is in your mind, that's why I will tell you from time to time, write something down, when things get hard look at it, you know, write down that you believe in this judgment of your sin nature, that I'm your friend and not your enemy, that I'm revealing your sin nature so that you who are Christ can rise up and overcome that sin nature, and prevail in righteousness. So I'm telling, this whole exhortation is to tell you that we change in the inner man, and when the inner man changes, then the clay reflects the change, but it is a very slow process, the best example I can give you is myself. I was dying when I came to the Lord, my physical body is changing, it's been twenty four years, I'm not dying anymore, I certainly don't look like I'm dying anymore, but my body is changing very slowly, and it's really, and as far as my health is changing, as far as my appearance, people will say things to me like you look younger every year. So I am changing but it's a very subtle change.

 

But the truth is that over the generations man can really radically change, but it takes many generations. Do you understand what I'm saying? Okay, so here's, I'm having trouble getting this out, here's what I'm trying to tell you, is that the outer man whether I call him the race of Cain or the race of Abel, or the race of Adam, he will be whatever indwells him. So if it's possible for that indwelling man to change, then we're dealing with something, I'm having trouble getting this out. Let me start another way, our carnal mind, and my carnal mind up until a couple of months ago, would think, well the race of Cain it would have to be a genetic physical race going down over the generations, this was the race of Cain you see, all of humanity today, we are the race of Cain because our mind is Cain, you see.

 

But the truth is that we are the descendants of Noah, the whole human race today are descendants of Noah, and Noah, was not humanoid, Noah was a member of the race of Seth, you see. So our physical, the physical exterior of the descendants of Noah has changed, because the inner man has turned under the seal. I guess I just have to spit this out. What I'm trying to tell you and I know I preached this years ago, is that for a race to exist, it does not have to come from a physical descent. You see right now all of humanity okay the Lord just showed me how to tell you, right now all of humanity, we are Cain. All of humanity is Cain, we're evil, right, we're good and evil on the evil side. And in comparison to the righteousness of Jesus Christ, the whole human race is evil. Well what's happening to us? We're being changed from the inside out. The seed of Christ is being grafted to us, and as the seed of Christ is grafted to us, we're getting a new mind, a renewed mind, and today we have the promise of a new body, don't we? We're promised a new heavens and a new earth. The new mind is coming first, the new body will be the incorruptible body that won't die. Is that not our hope with the signs of the times the way we are, we're all waiting to go over the wall and enter into immortality, that would mean a genetic change of this body to enter into immortality.

 

So what I'm trying to tell you is that, the spiritual power to change the outer shell is more important than a genetic descent. Let me see if I can think of another way to explain it to you, I'll just tell you what, how the Lord gave me this revelation. Lord please help me to explain this to them. Okay it's the issue of adoption, you see, it doesn't really matter, you don't have to be a natural Jew to receive the inheritance. What you need is the spiritual seed attached to you, and that spiritual seed will give you a new life will ultimately preserve your body. So the flesh is the last thing that's altered. So therefore to say that you're the race of Cain or you're the race of Abel or you're the race of Adam, or you're a Jew, it really doesn't even matter because it's the spiritual internal man that will mold the external man to look like and manifest what the internal man is right? So it doesn't really matter what our genetic inheritance is. Now this is how God gave me this revelation to this degree, I know we all know this concerning the Jews, and the Christians that you have the seed, you know, but it came to my ears, something that's being circulated, and it's been circulated around the church world for a long time, that what we know to be the Jewish people today, are not the true Jews.

 

So I bought a book on it because I wanted to read what this argument was, how these people could be saying that, that the Jewish people of today are not the true Jews, and I assumed it was an anti-Semitic, but after I read the book, I found out that it written by a Jewish man and he sited sources from Hebrew universities attesting to what he said, and to make it really short and sweet he said, the Jew that was present on Mount Sinai, that fought back is almost non-existence, between slavery and intermarriage and rape and everything that's happened that, that Jew doesn't even exist anymore, and what's more, the majority of the modern day Jews according to this book are not only not the descendants of Abraham, not only physical descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, but they're the physical descendants of some medieval tribe that converted to Judaism. So at first I was offended, you know and I thought the man was, the writer of the book was a fraud, but I asked the Lord for the truth no matter what I was thinking or feeling. It took two or three days and the Lord put me on the Internet and as I did my research, the Lord spoke to me and here's what he said to me, he came very, the Lord didn't tell me that it's true that these modern Jews are the descendants of the nation, but he didn't say it wasn't true, and it wouldn't surprise me if it's true, that what is true, that the average Jew today is not a physical descendant of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, but a physical descendant of this nation that converted to Judaism. But this is what the Lord said to me, he said Sheila it doesn't matter, if the Jew is a physical descendant of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob because when the life of God gets inside a nation and that nation honors the true God for a series of generations, the flesh of that nation acquires all of the genetic material that was present in the physical Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, can you hear what I'm saying?

 

That indwelling life of the anointed one, of the Christ, if you're a Jew and you're reading this message and it offends you to say the Christ, then believe the anointed one of God, whatever name you want to put on him, when that spiritual life indwells a nation of people or a mortal man, and especially when that nation follows the law and worships God and does everything that the natural physical genetic Jew would do for generations, the same genetic structure was in the physical descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob will appear in the physical descendants of that nation that has been serving God with all their strength for generations. Do you understand what I'm saying, and for that reason, this is a very exciting revelation the Lord gave me, for that reason Israel can never be destroyed, and Christianity will never be destroyed, because if every Christian on the face of the earth, and every Jew on the face of the earth was wiped out, I don't think that will ever happen, but if it ever happens, this glorious life of the resurrected Jesus Christ, will get on to another human being, will call another Abraham, will graft to that man, and that man and all of his descendants will serve the living God and the same genetic structure that was in Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob will appear in that nation. Because the promise does not come from any physical man, but from the spiritual seed that has the power to mold the flesh that covers it, and therefore what is above, what we see down here on the earth is really an image or a shadow or a reflection of what exists in the higher worlds, and the glorified Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ is glorified, he's one with the Ayn Sof, nobody can change that, and there is nothing that can happen on the face of the earth that will wipe out his image. He will always have an image on the earth because he exists in the heavens. So it doesn't matter the Lord said to me, if the Jewish, the people who are called Jews today, if they are the descendants of a nation, an honest nation who recognized the God of Israel, and converted generations ago, and whose descendants have been following the law for generations, it doesn't matter is if they're not the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, they are true Jews because of the indwelling light that God gave them in response to their keeping the law, and seeking Jehovah, the God of the Bible. Do you understand what I'm saying? They became what they worshiped.

 

We are just the clay down here, so personally I think it's probably true the Jews today are not the physical descendants of Abraham Isaac and Jacob, but nevertheless we have the same genetic structure because of the procedure I've just shown you. This world is a shadow, it is not the reality. See the reality is above, any correction you make in this world is temporary, and that's the whole Genesis of spiritual healing, we go to doctors, we take medication, we go under the knife, we cut ourselves open, we cut out organs, and you get sick again, you know, because this body is just a shadow of a corruption in our soul that's producing that disease. When we become Christ, when we overcome our carnal minds and become Christ, our body will be perfect.

 

This whole world is a lie, it's an illusion, it's false, it's a dream. I use to manifest when I would hear that, if I would hear anybody say that, I would get upset, I said, well maybe it's your illusion, but I feel the pain of this illusion, don't tell me this world is not real. But I have matured from that point, and although it's true that we feel the pain that's in this world, the truth is that we are what we think, what we think that is what we become, and believing this, that this body is just a reflection of the real man, I now pray frequently, Lord let me be Christ, let my old man die, let me be blameless, and this is surely coming to pass in my life because I know that what I am is changeable. As my inner man changes, as I seek God with an honest heart, I don't have to stay this way and therefore this body is...

 

...and compensate for present day weaknesses until my change comes, but this is not my life. Every weakness that manifests here, this is not my life, physical weakness that I know of is not my life, mental, intellectual, spiritual, moral failings that I have, this is not my life, my life is in Christ Jesus and this flesh must line up with that life, as I continue to seek him for that change, and from that point of view, this whatever I am today is temporary. Anymore questions, anybody have any questions, okay Goodnight, God bless you. (End of tape 3)
