This message originally was a part of Part 11 of A Look at Kabbalah, and the Lord turned it into a different subject. So that the beginning of the message, it doesn't sound like Kabbalah and the Emergence of the Holy Spirit, but that message does break through under the anointing as you follow the message through. The preaching is now in progress.
On the board here is a review. I don't remember whether I taught it Kabbalah Study or a Look at Kabbalah, but it is a review with some corrections. Now recently, I believe it was in this series, I told you that the general YHVH was only two letters YH, originally. Does anybody remember that? I was wrong. Sorry about that. It was the SaG of the general YHVH that was only two letters originally. These four letters, YHVH, were inside of Adam Kadmon. They are the substance or the essence of the whole creation that would come forth inside, but a creation cannot come forth until the letters come outside. The reason the YOD did not come outside is because it is too high. Which Sefirot does the YOD represent? Does anyone remember?
COMMENT: The YOD represents the Keter and what else?
PASTOR VITALE: No.
COMMENT: AB (72).
PASTOR VITALE: No.
COMMENT: Eyn Sof.
PASTOR VITALE: No.
The YOD signifies Keter and Chokhmah. You may remember that the tip of the YOD represents Keter. Let me remind you of the Hebrew letter YOD. The Y is an Arabic letter, but the Hebrew letter YOD looks like that, sort of like a 7 with a horizontal part of the 7 tipping upwards. So this little tip here is Keter, and then the vertical line going downward is Chokhmah. Before you take the picture, I will make it clearer on the board.
The letter YOD has two parts to it, and the tip of the YOD represents the Keter and the vertical part of the YOD represents Chokhmah. Keter and Chokhmah are inseparable. Chokhmah has a Partzuf called Abba. He is the father, and is, therefore, joined permanently to the mother who is SaG. So Keter, Chokhmah, and Binah, which is SaG are inseparable. They are the head, and they are inseparable, and they are immortal. They are indestructible.
I don't know about you, but it took me a long time to understand that these letters were on the inside of Adam Kadmon, and that as they emerged out from Him, we have the construction of the creation. It took me a long time to figure that out.
So inside of Adam Kadmon, we have the complete Tetragrammaton, YHVH, but it is just like an egg inside of a woman's ovary or a sperm inside of a man testes. It is not going anywhere, it is not doing anything until it comes outside. There is nothing you can do with it until it comes outside, and the way this Tetragrammaton which is within Adam Kadmon comes outside is a letter at a time, but the YOD....I know this is so confusing because there are so many names to each letter.
We have the YOD of the Tetragrammaton. It is also AB, it is also Keter and Chokhmah. So you just have to do the best you can, and I see that the men that we are studying from just go back and forth. In other words, in one sentence they could be calling the YOD, YOD, and in the next sentence they are calling it AB, and in the next sentence they are calling it Chokhmah or Keter, and I find myself doing the same thing, and I don't know why I do it. I would like to believe that it is the Mind of Christ in me doing that, and that is why the Kabbalists did it, and that's why I do it, and I guess I have to call myself a Kabbalist at this point. I'm becoming a Kabbalist. That must be the Mind of Christ operating in me. So just try to flow with it. If you have any questions, ask. It is a good exercise for your mind if you don't understand something, to sit down and say "well, what's another word for this that I don't understand it?" Aside from that, I can't explain to you why it has to be so complicated, but it will expand your mind if you stick with it.
So inside of Adam Kadmon, we have the general Tetragrammaton, YHVH, the creation potential form. The letters can only come out one letter at a time, and the YOD which is AB does not come out, because that is too high, too sublime, too far beyond the capacity of our human mind to comprehend it in any manner, shape or form so it remains concealed.
Another aspect that I would like to mention to you here, which really is not a part of this lesson, we are doing Lesson 5 here by the way, is that which is concealed is the male. We have read in the King James for many years that a woman shall surround a man, but the King James translation is "behold, I will do a new thing, a woman shall surround a man," but that is not the correct translation. I know that we did translate that Scripture on another part of this series. The woman has always surrounded the man. So, therefore, to be in right order, your woman has to be surrounding the man, but first you have to have the man in you. I don't want to go off on that. I just want to tell you that AB stays inside, because that is the highest aspect...the highest aspect actually is neuter. It is male and female completely woven together. It is an "it," but, positionally, it being concealed puts it in the male role, the passive male role, that which is concealed. So AB stays inside.
When the letters come on the outside, the rules change, and we had this on a recent message also. The laws on the inside of Adam Kadmon are the opposite of the laws on the outside of Adam Kadmon. OK, let's just go on.
The YOD did not come out, the YOD remained concealed. It is just like saying that the true source of the power, the true source of the energy, remains concealed. This is the way this whole world is set up. We have been talking about this a lot lately, and I've told you that everything that appears in this world, from a blade of grass, to a human being, to a gigantic tree, everything, to an animal, to a bird, to a caterpillar, to a mosquito, everything that appears in this world has a root in the invisible plane that's on the other side of this visible world.
You can think of our world as a hand. We have a palm, and we have the back of the hand. This visible world is the back of the hand. What is on the palm is hidden, but the true roots of everything we see here exists in the palm. They are invisible, they are concealed, they are hidden, but without those roots nothing that we see would exist. So to say that AB remains on the inside because it is too high to come out is just another way of saying that AB is the source of everything that there is.
It is just like saying....look at all these electric lights we have here. Do you understand where electricity comes from? I never did take the time to sit down and learn that. All I need to know is I need a plug, and I need an outlet, and I need a bulb in a fixture, and I stick it in, and I have light. But there is some deep mystery of the physical laws of this world that exists in the walls behind the electric outlet, and there would be no light and no power in this house at all if it wasn't for what I cannot see. So that which is hidden is that which has the power, and that which you can see is the illusion because the power is invisible.
So the next letter up to emerge to the outside of Adam Kadmon is the H, the H of the general Tetragrammaton which is inside of Adam Kadmon, and that H we know is Binah, meaning understanding, and she is also SaG, and the name SaG refers to the fact that each of the four letters of the Tetragrammaton is, in and of itself, a Tetragrammaton or a sub-Tetragrammaton or a second generation, if that helps you, of the Tetragrammaton, and the way we distinguish between the Tetragrammaton of the YOD and the H and the V'AV and the H is that we spell these four...this is all review now...we spell these four letters of the Tetragrammaton differently.
In the case of the YOD, in the case of the H, in the case of the V'AV, and in the case of the second H, we spell this YHVH differently. We write it differently, so that it totals to a different numerical value. We, therefore, have four different Tetragrammatons representing four different numerical values, emerging from the general Tetragrammaton that is inside of Adam Kadmon, and these four sub-Tetragrammatons, if you will, come to the outside eventually, and the general Tetragrammaton stays on the inside. Is everybody OK? This is all basic review.
It is the SaG that is coming out of Adam Kadmon. She is the beginning of the creation on the outside. She is called the mother. The SaG comes out, and she expands on the outside into the first two letters of her own Tetragrammaton, the YOD and the H. In previous drawings, I have shown you all four letters, YHVH, and I've said that this is the A'S'Ma'B of the SaG of the general Tetragrammaton, but now I have more information, and I know that is not completely accurate.
The bottom line is this, that the YOD and the H that emerged from the inside to the outside are just migrating. They are changing position. Their essence has not changed, none of their qualities have changed. They have just migrated from the inside of Adam Kadmon to the outside of Adam Kadmon, and these two letters, the YOD and the H, which are the SaG of Adam Kadmon, give birth to their next two letters. This YOD and this H of the SaG of Adam Kadmon give birth to the V'AV and the H.
So the first two letters, the YOD and the H, that comes out of the SaG, are just changing places, but the next two letters of the SaG of Adam Kadmon, the V'AV and the H, are born of this marriage between the YOD and the H that comes out of Adam Kadmon. Is everybody OK? This is definitely a challenge. Now try not to get frustrated with this, just do the best that you can. It is so confusing.
So the SaG of Adam Kadmon has come outside in the form of its first two letters, the YOD and the H. Now the YOD, and again this is review, is the cantillations, that's English cantillations. Ta'amim is the Hebrew. These are the cantillations or the ta'amim of the SaG of Adam Kadmon. Why do I call it cantillations sometimes and ta'amim at other times? I cannot tell you, don't know.
The H that came out from the inside of Adam Kadmon is the nekudot, and I'm not sure if I'm pronouncing that correctly. These are the vowels, and the nekudot of the SaG of Adam Kadmon will produce the light that will come out of the eyes of Adam Kadmon. This H, I think I said that wrong...this H, the second letter of the SaG of the general Tetragrammaton, this H, when it emerges from the inside to the outside of Adam Kadmon, it comes out of His eyes.
So we see that there are two kinds of light that comes out of Adam Kadmon's eyes. There is the light that emerges simply because it is vibrated from one place inside of Him to the place outside of Him, and I'm calling that the simple light. Then we have light that is born from Adam Kadmon, and that is called the new light, and that new light comes out of Adam Kadmon's forehead. I think the Lord just corrected me. I think I said there are two kinds of light that comes out of His eyes. So the Lord just corrected me. The light that comes out of Adam Kadmon's eyes is the light that comes from the H of the SaG of Adam Kadmon, and the light that comes out of Adam Kadmon's forehead, not his eyes, is called the new light. That is the light that is born, and it becomes the V'AV of the Tetragrammaton called SaG.
I'm going to say this as many times as you need me to say this. I will say it again. Each of the four letters of the original Tetragrammaton is, in and of itself, a Tetragrammaton, YHVH. The original Tetragrammaton is inside of Adam Kadmon. The first letter to emerge to the outside is the H which is the SaG. The name of the Tetragrammaton that is represented by the first H of the general Tetragrammaton is called SaG, and her first two letters come out. The first letter YOD comes out, and the second letter of SaG that comes out is the H, and the light of the H emerges from the eyes of Adam Kadmon.
Now, the light that comes out as the YOD of the SaG is called the cantillations or the musical notes or the ta'atim of the SaG of the general Adam Kadmon. These cantillations or these ta'amim have a Tetragrammaton of their own. They have their own YHVH. So this is why I have a diagram for you. Jehovah on the inside, the first H comes out. The YOD of the H comes out, and that YOD itself has a YHVH underneath it, different generations. You might say Jehovah inside is the first generation, the SaG that comes out if the second generation, and the YOD of the SaG that comes out gives birth to a third generation, and in this third generation we have the light that emerges out of Adam Kadmon's ears, nose, and mouth. The light that comes out of Adam Kadmon's ears, nose, and mouth is third level, third generation.
You know, when you go to buy olive oil, they have extra, extra virgin olive oil. I think it is extra, extra. Maybe it is just extra virgin olive oil, virgin olive oil, the first pressing, and then you get light oil. They keep pressing those olives, and the strongest oil that comes forth is the first pressing, and that's what extra virgin olive oil means. It is the first time the olives were touched by the press. That's what we have here.
The first light to come out of Adam Kadmon is the YOD of His SaG, and that YOD....let's look at it this way. Let's say the original Tetragrammaton, and I'm not sure that this is accurate, the original Tetragrammaton is like around the naval inside of Adam Kadmon. You would say it is in his belly. The SaG is ready to come out, so the YOD of the SaG rises up through the neck, and it is in His head, but behind his eyes, nose, and mouth. Back here in His head is this light of the YOD. Can you see that at all?
The light is floating around in His head trying to find a gateway to get out. It is not going to come out of His eyes. There is a problem. It can't get out of His eyes. This light that comes up, represented by the letter YOD, is destined to come out of Adam Kadmon through His ears, His nose, and His mouth. So there is activity going on inside of Adam Kadmon's head as this light tries to penetrate out through the openings of the ears, the nose, and the mouth. Are you following me? It is inside of His head, and all of these lights are stuck together. The light that's going to come out of His ears, His nose, and His mouth is all stuck together. So the ears, the nose, and the mouth are like a filter. This light is going to have to be filtered. It is going to have to break up into different beams to come out of the ears, the nose, and the mouth.
So it is inside of His head in the form of a YOD, and this YOD which is one big ball of light breaks down into its own YHVH, and the light of the ears is going to come out of the H of the cantillations of the SaG of the general Tetragrammaton. See, the light that's going to come out of the ears is not coming out of the H of the SaG of the Tetragrammaton. It is coming out of the H which is the SaG of the ta'amim of the SaG of the general Tetragrammaton. That's the specific location. It is not wrong to say that the light of Adam Kadmon's ears is coming out of the YOD, or coming out of the cantillations of the SaG of the general Tetragrammaton. That's not wrong, but let's break down this cantillations even more. The cantillations themselves break down into a YOD, H, V'AV, H, and the light of the ears are coming out of that first H which is the SaG.
See, the light of the ears is not coming out of the V'AV of the ta'amim of the SaG of Adam Kadmon. Let me give it to you another way. Let me give you another example.
Sheila is holding a pen, all of me. I don't know anything about human anatomy at all, Sheila, the entity Sheila, has a pen. OK, where do I go looking for this pen? I don't know anything about human anatomy, where is the pen? On your toe, in your leg, in your belly button, in your ear, where is the pen? Well, the pen in a human being is held in a hand. Oh, well let's look at Sheila's hand. OK, where is the pen? Don't know anything about human anatomy, looking at Sheila's hand, is it coming out of the fingernails, is it coming out of the top of her hand, is it coming out of the palm? No. In a human being, when you hold something you usually hold it between a thumb and a forefinger. Well, let's check out Sheila's thumb and her forefinger. Oh, there it is.
See I've got this whole big entity Sheila. I'm 5 feet 2 inches, and you are looking for a pen, but you haven't a clue that the pen is in my hand. So you have to break down my whole body and locate my hand and the two fingers that would be holding that pen, and that's where it is, but it is not wrong to say, Sheila has a pen. Neither is it wrong to say, Sheila has a pen in her hand or that Sheila is holding a pen, but, specifically, Sheila is holding the pen between her thumb and her forefinger, is just more accurate.
This is what we are doing with the details concerning the light that is emerging from the inside to the outside of Adam Kadmon. The first letter to come out of Adam Kadmon was the first H which is SaG. She first sent forth her first letter, YOD. Another name for the YOD of SaG that comes out is the cantillations or the ta'amim, and the cantillations of the SaG of the general Adam Kadmon has its own Tetragrammaton, and the light of the ears comes out of the SaG of the cantillations of the SaG of the general Tetragrammaton.
Also, the light of the nose, the light that emerges from the nose of Adam Kadmon comes from the V'AV of the cantillations of the SaG of the general Tetragrammaton. The light that emerges from the mouth of Adam Kadmon comes from the second H or the BaN of the cantillations of the SaG of the general Tetragrammaton.
So we see that the light of the ears, the nose, and the mouth, you might say is second generation or third generation, depending on where you are counting from. Let's make it second generation. The YOD and the H that came outside is the first generation that came outside, and the light that came from the ears, the nose, and the mouth is a second generation. The light of the ears, the nose, and the mouth comes forth from that YOD that emerged to the outside, but not so with the eyes, not so with the light of the eyes.
The light that emerged from the eyes of Adam Kadmon came forth from the second letter that emerged from the inside to the outside, the first H of the SaG which is the second letter of the general Tetragrammaton. This H came out after the YOD and the light that emerged from the eyes of Adam Kadmon came directly from this H; therefore, the light that emerged from the eyes is more powerful than the light that emerged from the ears, the nose, and the mouth, because the light that emerged from the eyes is the first generation, that which came directly from the inside to the outside, but the light that emerged from the ears, the nose, and the mouth, this light went through an additional filter. It did not come directly from that which came from the inside to the outside. It came from a second generation of that which came from the inside to the outside. So the light of the eyes is more powerful than the light of the ears, the nose, and the mouth.
I have written on the board here for you, I'm showing you the cantillations or the ta'amim of the SaG of the general Tetragrammaton, and we have the cantillations broken down into a YOD which we are not doing anything with at this time. I haven't been taught anything with it. The H of the cantillations brings forth....and this we learned from The Tree of Life, brings forth, ultimately, Tevunah which is the left ear, and Ehyeh spelled out which is the right ear, if you remember that. This Ehyeh spelled out is the SaG of the AB of the SaG. H is always SaG, the first H. This Ehyeh spelled out is the H of the AB or the H of the cantillations or the H of the ta'amim of the SaG of the general Tetragrammaton.
We know from our other study, A Look at Kabbalah, that Tevunah is the H of the SaG of the SaG, and that is another whole lesson, and then from Tevunah the light of the nose and the mouth came forth. That's the best I can do. I hope you understand that.
On the lower left-hand corner of the board, I have separated this with dashed lines, because the V'AV and the H of the SaG that came out of the general Tetragrammaton did not just emerge from the inside to the outside. The V'AV and the H of the SaG on the outside are born of the elements that came out previously, and the copulation is between the cantillations of the SaG of the general Tetragrammaton. These cantillations right here, that's talking about the lights of the ears, the nose, and the mouth that rose up, ascended and went back inside Adam Kadmon and coupled with the YOD that was still inside Adam Kadmon.
How did they get back inside? I'm not sure. There is a Kabbalistic teaching on it saying that the lights got back inside as a result of passion, and that's probably correct, but I'm not ready to go into those details right now.
What I didn't mention to you before was the AB that didn't come out, the YOD that was on the inside of Adam Kadmon that was too high to come out, I didn't tell you this....it did ascend. It ascended into Adam Kadmon's head. I may be wrong about this that this original Tetragrammaton was somewhere in the midst of Him. The AB ascended into His head and became His brains, ultimately became His brains.
So we see the lights of the ears, nose, and the mouth which were outside now, they went back inside, and they got together with the AB, the YOD of the original Tetragrammaton, and there was a spiritual sexual coupling which gave birth to the V'AV of the SaG that came outside, and this is called MaH, the son, who was born of the union of the cantillations of the SaG of the SaG which is outside of Adam Kadmon, and the male aspect is the AB or the YOD which is still on the inside of Adam Kadmon.
So we see that the V'AV did not just emerge from the inside to the outside. The V'AV is what I'm calling the compound son. He is a compound letter. He did not exist originally on the inside of Adam Kadmon. He is the new light, He is the fruit of the coupling of the cantillations of the SaG that came outside and the YOD that never came outside, and there is a birth. Because there is a birth, there is something new, this V'AV can die, this son can die. The YOD and the H cannot die. The YOD represents Keter and Chokhmah....well, Keter is virtually the life of the Eyn Sof inside a border, impossible to destroy it, and Chokhmah is so interwoven and so close to Keter it is impossible to destroy it.
SaG begins to become a little vulnerable, but she is so interwoven with Keter and Chokhmah that she, too, is immortal. But everything after SaG, everything that comes forth after SaG can die, because everything that comes forth after SaG is born, and that which is born can die. Everything has an opposite. If you are born, you can die. If you have a beginning, you can come to an end. Only that which is endless has no end. Then also, the H, the second H, the fourth letter of the SaG which came to the outside of Adam Kadmon, is not a letter that emerged from the inside to the outside, but it is a letter that was born of the second coupling of the light of the ears, nose and mouth, the cantillations or the ta'amim in their union with the AB that was on the inside. These two letters are born from the forehead.
Now remember, these all letters, everything we are talking about, is representing conscious beings, and these conscious beings exist on all levels of creation. Everything that I'm telling you about is happening to us or has a potential to happen to us. It happens on the highest spiritual plane in a realm that we are not even capable of understanding, and it is also happening to us. I will keep reminding you of this, that this is not just high spiritual principles. This is the true reality that plays itself out in ways that we can understand it, and the more I get into Kabbalah the more interesting it becomes to me, because the Lord has enabled me to apply what I'm learning to my own personal experience which is very exciting to me. And the same thing for mathematics. I was very good in algebra when I was in high school, I never pursued it, but it seems to me that it is just incredibly interesting and exciting.
Do you know that you could write a math formula on the board, and then manifest that formula in the reality of, for example, atomic fission, and the atom bomb....that's not the best example, or nuclear energy that could benefit mankind. The formula for nuclear energy is a simple mathematical equation, and I want to tell you that I do not understand, because I never followed my math potential, I never went on with it in school, I do not have a grasp in my mind of how a simple equation written on the board, letters and numbers can be translated into the kind of power that produced the atom bomb. I don't understand it, but I look at all this high stuff that's on the board, which looks like all kinds of....it is a formula. It is not a mathematical formula, but it is a formula, and the Lord has given me the ability to relate this complicated teaching on the board to something that I am experiencing.
So I have more of an understanding now of how a simple mathematical formula can produce an atom bomb than I ever did before; although I would not know how to do it. From my study of Kabbalah, I see how this formula somehow has translated into a human experience. Has and is translating into a human experience. Now when the Lord gave us the Doctrine of Christ, He gave us a great deal of what we are learning in Kabbalah in a much more understandable way, because the Doctrine of Christ gives us personalities. The Fiery Serpent, Leviathan, Satan, it is much easier to apply it to ourselves. So part of our job is to relate the Doctrine of Christ to these Kabbalistic principles and reveal them for what they are really saying, because we have received it on a much more understandable level.
This is happening to us. As it is above, so it is below. We are not Adam Kadmon, Lord knows, we are not...this immortal entity that is so close to the Eyn Sof that He's really one with the Eyn Sof except He is inside of a border, but we are His image down here in The World of Action, and that which is entering inside of us, what is that which is entering inside of us that can be likened to the general Tetragrammaton, what is entering to the inside of us? What's entering into us?
PASTOR VITALE: The seed of Christ.
Yes, if you have the seed of Christ the Tetragrammaton is inside of you, and everything that's inside of you has to start coming out. Why? Because that's the plan. The Lord did not give you this seed to stay inside of you, because if it stays inside of you the seed is going to die when you die, and you will die if the seed doesn't come out, because the seed is your potential for eternal life, but it has to come out for you to get eternal life. If it doesn't come out, it will die with you as a seed that is planted under the ground that never sprouts.
So everything I've just taken a half hour to try to explain to you, all this complicated stuff, what I said to you is that you have the seed of Christ, and in that seed is an aspect of the Lord Jesus, we will call Him the YOD. He's too high, He's not coming out, we are not ready for that, He's too high, but He's sending the woman out first, you see. He's sending the female aspect of Himself out first, He's sending out the SaG, and the SaG is coming out in the form of the understanding that comes from the ears, and the understanding that comes from the heart which is the nose. The nose is associated with the heart. What does the nose have to do with the heart Sheila? The nose is associated with the heart because the light that comes out of the nose extends down as far as the heart. Remember, everything is descending.
The light has to rise up, because the light is in our belly, the seed of Christ....where is the seed of Christ grafted? Where is the seed of Christ grafted, anybody?
COMMENT: In the belly.
PASTOR VITALE: That's not wrong, but what specifically in the belly is Christ grafted to?
PASTOR VITALE: Yes. Christ is grafted to Abel who has been overcome by Cain.
So this general Tetragrammaton in the form of the seed of Christ is grafted to Abel in you, and Abel is a part of your Fiery Serpent which is your mortal foundation. That is why we need a new foundation. Jesus Christ is our new foundation, because our mortal foundation, the Fiery Serpent, cannot preserve the life of this body, and the reason she cannot preserve the life of this body, does anybody know why? Does anybody know why our mortal foundation cannot preserve our life? Because she is a parasite. She is feeding off of us, she is living off of us, she is consuming the life energy that we were born with.
So the seed of Christ, your own personal Tetragrammaton, is grafted to Abel in you. The YOD does not come out, the YOD goes up to your brain and stays there until such time as He's activated. That's your potential for the manifestation of the Lord Jesus Christ, the glorified Jesus Christ in you. Then the female aspect of the seed comes forth, the SaG, which is Christ. First Christ appears, and Christ appears initially as the light of the ears which is understanding. Hear ye, hear ye, the Kingdom of God is at hand.
Then the light of the nose comes forth, which is associated with the heart. As I told you, I think I backed up to explain this to you, all of these lights are inside of you, in your belly, and they are rising up to your head to come out, and when they come out, the light is descending. You are making a circle here. So the light of the ears goes down to the bottom of your metaphorical beard, you don't have to have a beard, it is a metaphor. The light of your nose goes down to your heart. So that means....you know, it is really all the same light. I don't want you to think it is three different lights. It is really all the same light spreading in different directions, spreading through different channels in different directions. It is basically all the same light.
So we can say the light of God touches your heart, and you start having a desire to pursue God. You know, you can have understanding and have no desire to pursue Him. I see this in people, and it amazes me, but I am hopefully accepting the fact that everybody is not like me. I used to think everybody was like me. I know people who are even understanding this doctrine, and have a very, compared to me, a very small drive to pursue Him. So when the light gets to your heart, you start panting after the Lord, and your emotions get involved or your emotions are added to your understanding of Him. In other words, you can have an understanding of speaking in tongues, you can have an understanding of the Holy Spirit, you can have an understanding of all of the gifts of the spirit, but until that light touches your heart you won't particularly be desiring it, and some people even preach against it and say it is of the devil.
So that understanding that there is such a thing as speaking in tongues and the gifts of the Spirit, that understanding which is in the form of light has not descended down to the heart of these people. Why not? I'm not sure at this point, and that is not our message today anyway. I guess the light is not strong enough. How does the light get stronger? I'm not going to get into that right now. I don't know. That's not today's message.
The third thing that comes out of you after Christ arises in you is the light of the mouth. Now what happens in the mouth....now remember, we are talking about you metaphorically now, does anybody not understand that? The Lord has just brought a correction. I remember in my studies of the past that, according to the Greek of the New Testament, there is more than one kind of seed that is being sown. So initially, the seed that is sown in the church is not the seed of Christ. Initially, it is the seed of the Holy Spirit which is not the whole seed of Christ. So it is the seed of the Holy Spirit that is initially sown in us, and I'm going to follow this principle of the Tetragrammaton, because I'm not telling you that this is exactly what happens. I'm just trying to relate your experience to what I'm teaching on the board.
Everything that I told you earlier is correct. The light of the ears comes forth, and you receive understanding when the seed of the Holy Spirit is sown in you. When is the Holy Spirit sown in you? When you are exposed to the Holy Spirit. When you are either in a room where the Holy Spirit has manifested or somebody prays for you. First, understanding comes forth from your ears. Then it touches your heart, and when that seed touches your heart perhaps you are manifesting the gifts of the spirit yourself, and then the light that comes out of the mouth, the metaphorical mouth of Adam Kadmon or your own metaphorical mouth, is a place where the light of the vessel and the inner light come together. This light that comes out of the ears, I hope I have this straight, the light that comes out of the right ear, I may have this reversed, the light that comes out of the right ear is the light that produces the vessel, and the light that comes out of the left ear is the light that is the inner light. The light that comes out of the right ear produces the vessel and the surrounding light.
Well, what does that have to do with you or me? The vessel, we are a vessel, our physical body is a vessel, but in this case I asked the Lord, how do I explain the light of the mouth in accordance with this analogy that He is giving you here? And He said that the light of the mouth is Christ. You originally receive the seed of the Holy Spirit which brings forth in you understanding, a passion for the Lord which, hopefully, will manifest in the gifts of the spirit, and then, eventually, out of the metaphorical mouth comes forth the vessel of Christ, and the inner light that's in the vessel of Christ is the Spirit of Christ, which is the fertile seed that has the potential to grant you eternal life when the procedure is fulfilled. Does anybody need me to say that again? That's how I just related this complicated board to you.
We have this seed, it is not the seed of Christ...the seed of Christ is the seed of the whole man. That seed has within itself the potential to bring forth in you a fully mature Christ Jesus who will be joined to the Lord Jesus Christ. The seed of the Holy Spirit is the female seed. See, the seed of the Spirit of Christ is the male and the female that gives you the potential to bring forth the whole creation in yourself. The whole story of creation is happening in each individual. The seed of the Holy Spirit is just the female seed, but out of the female seed comes forth the potential for the male seed.
Now, according to the Doctrine of Christ, when the light gets....I'm going to intermingle now the Doctrine of Christ with Kabbalah, because Kabbalah is saying that the light of the mouth comes forth, and you have the light of the vessel and the light of the inner light. According to Kabbalah, I would have to draw the conclusion that this seed that's planted in you has the potential for the whole thing. Let me say it again, I think someone didn't understand me.
What I'm doing is very hard. I'm weaving together the Doctrine of Christ with Kabbalah for the purpose of clarifying Kabbalah, making Kabbalah clear to the understanding, so please bear with me. I didn't know the Lord was going to do this. This is strictly by the spirit of revelation, so please bear with me.
If we are going to take what Kabbalah says, it would have to be the way I told it to you before I said, the Lord just corrected me. Kabbalah says the seed would be planted in you, that the YOD would go into your head, into your brain in a sort of regressive form. It wouldn't be manifest in you. That is your potential to manifest the glorified Jesus Christ or perhaps the Spirit of Christ. Then the SaG comes forth in you and produces understanding out of your ears and a passion for the Lord out of your heart, which may include the gifts of the spirit, and then, according to Kabbalah, the next step is that the light comes out of your mouth, and the mouth is the place where the light of the right ear and the light of the left ear come together, and the light of the right ear is in the form of a vessel, and from the left ear is the light that goes in the vessel.
So if this is the whole story, then Kabbalah is saying what I was saying that the Lord just corrected me, the Lord is saying that you have everything in that initial seed, and isn't that what the church is preaching, that if you get the Holy Spirit you have the whole thing? But it is not the whole thing. We know from the Doctrine of Christ that the Holy Spirit alone will not do it, that the seed that is being sown will not do it. Why not? Because, even according to Kabbalah, the YOD which is the male is not manifesting. Everything that I have just told you has come forth from the female SaG. The light of the ears, understanding, the light of the nose, a passion for God and the gifts of the spirit, and the light of the mouth, the vessel and the light in the vessel all come forth from the female SaG. So you can't possibly have the seed of Christ in that, because the seed of Christ is male and female. It takes the seed of Christ which is male and female to produce eternal life. That means that either I'm not understanding something or the interweaving of the two doctrines is not perfect. It could be either one, but this is how I see it unless the Lord gives me further understanding.
I see the doctrine of Kabbalah falling short at this point. Now, I could be wrong. I really don't want to put down this doctrine of a thousand years unless it is really God telling me to do it. I'm not putting it down, it is just a correction, but it could be a lack in this area. Is anybody not following what I'm saying here? Let me say it again. We are talking about this Tetragrammaton being buried in us, the seed of the Holy Spirit which is a female seed bringing forth only female qualities, understanding, a passion for God, and a vessel and the light that fills the vessel. It has to be all female. There is nothing male here. Is anybody not understanding what I'm saying?
So what this vessel is and the light that's in it that comes forth from the female alone, I'm not sure. Maybe it is the Holy Spirit. Let's try it this way. Does everybody understand that this is like a scientific lab. We are just testing out everything, OK? We know the seed is only female. There is no male seed here. We have the light of the ears, that's understanding. Then the light comes down to the heart, and I was saying to you, well maybe that's the gifts of the spirit, but what I'm thinking now is, no, the light comes down to the heart, and that is just a passionate desire for God, and then the next step, the vessel with the light that comes into the vessel, maybe that is the vessel of the Holy Spirit, but that doesn't fit either. That doesn't fit another part of the doctrine either.
Let's go with this for the moment. What vessel could be coming forth from the female alone? Can anybody think of what vessel could be coming forth from the female alone. The only vessel that I could think of that could be coming forth from the female....nope, even that is not right. Look, this is what I'm struggling with. I'm bringing you up to my level. This is what I go through before I bring forth doctrine. Do you remember me teaching you that the daughter is born of the union of the cantillations of SaG with AB, and I have taught you in our message called The World of Points and the Fall that the daughter, this daughter that's born of the coupling of the female cantillations with the male AB, she is male and female, came forth as BaN, and she is the one that invaded the Garden and fertilized the seeds of Adam Kadmon's ovaries with female offspring. I have told you that BaN that came forth that's born of the second coupling is the Holy Spirit, the male organ without the testes.
So if that revelation was correct, then I cannot say that this vessel that comes forth from the mouth is the Holy Spirit, because I already told you that the Holy Spirit is born of the cantilations and the AB so how can I tell you the Holy Spirit is of the cantillations alone? Does everybody see my predicament? Is everybody following the question?
Listen, this is how you have to think. This is a very high message this morning, that the Lord is inviting you to experience how I reason. The way I reason is the way Christ reasons, that's how I get all this revelation. So the question is, what is this vessel with the light in it that's coming forth, and the only answer....when I start this I don't have the answer. I just follow my nose, I'm not afraid of making a mistake, I'm not afraid of saying that I'm wrong, I just want the truth, see? And I just keep following my nose, and, eventually, I get there, and if I'm wrong, the Lord corrects me.
So the only thing that's coming to my mind right now is that there is more than one form of the Holy Spirit. I tell you what, that I know that I do not have the answer, so I'm going to end the meeting now. We will go out to dinner, and we are only ending a few minutes early. We usually go until 3 o'clock, but I feel that I can't go on, and that I would expect the Lord to give me this answer by the time we come back after dinner. Are there any questions or anything that I can answer for you before we close? Otherwise, I'm just going to close early today and believe that God's going to....unless....well, why don't we try this? Why don't we just shut off the tape and sit here for five minutes and see if He tells me what the answer is?
What I'm thinking is that the vessel and the light that comes out of the mouth which is all female is a different level or a different grade of the Holy Spirit as the Holy Spirit that is represented by the daughter which is Adam Kadmon's male organ without the testes. The daughter is male and female but predominantly female, and this is how is see the two different grades of the Holy Spirit. It is a teaching we have had here with the Doctrine of Christ.
The church today is not baptized in the Holy Spirit. We have received a measure of the Holy Spirit. If you speak in tongues, you have received a measure of the Holy Spirit. The apostles on the day of Pentecost received the Holy Spirit, and they were filled up with the water of the Holy Spirit of God, and they did the kinds of miracles that the Christian who has received the Holy Spirit does not do. They had high supernatural powers when they were baptized with the Holy Spirit. We have just received the Holy Spirit, just a measure, just a promise of what's to come. I really think that's it, OK.
So the next thought that comes to my mind is, well if this is the answer to our predicament, if the vessel and the light that fills it that comes out of the SaG which is all female, is what the church has today, and it is called the Holy Spirit. I would not go to you and say, well you who have received the Holy Spirit do this or you who are baptized with the Holy Spirit do this. We just talk about having the Holy Spirit, so there is no real distinction today. So the difference between the person who has received the Holy Spirit, it is an activity or an experience of the female. There is no male seed. The Holy Spirit that would be the daughter who is capable of impregnating the seeds of Adam Kadmon's ovary. See, the Holy Spirit that's all female, I haven't read or seen anything that would indicate she was either powerful enough or has the opportunity to impregnate the seeds of Adam Kadmon's ovary. But the Holy Spirit that was born of the cantillations and the AB, she was both male and female, and she was waiting to be joined by Adam Kadmon's testes. Her role was to fertilize those seedlings, but she was supposed to wait until she was a whole male organ, both male organ and testes. She had to wait until she was the whole genitalia.
So the daughter went ahead, she went before the time, she went before the Lord, but this Holy Spirit that's all female, I don't see her having any opportunity to fertilize anybody. I really think I see it now. Look, this is what the Lord is showing me.
So the vessel and the light that came forth from the cantillations which is all female is a premature Holy Spirit, that's the word that comes to me, a premature or an early manifestation of the Holy Spirit that has the power to grant new tongues and give the gifts of the spirit, and it is this same Holy Spirit in its premature stage that is a part of the whole cantillations. Raise your hand if you are not following me. The premature Holy Spirit comes out of the mouth, and this is the cantillations of SaG. This whole cantillations, the light that comes out of the ears, the nose, and the mouth all together is going to rise up and have spiritual sexual intercourse with the AB and is going to be born as the daughter.
So we see that the daughter is really the same Holy Spirit that was over here that was all female. This daughter, she is that same Holy Spirit plus more. She is that same Holy Spirit plus what she got from AB which is the male seed, and now in this condition where she is both male and female, this daughter who is the mature Holy Spirit, is no longer called the Holy Spirit. She is now called the daughter, she now has the ability if she yields to it to go ahead and fertilize the seedlings of the garden.
The Lord told me twice to tell you something, and I wanted to finish my point first, and now I've forgotten what He told me. I tried to finish my thought before I told you what the Lord told me, and I forgot what He told me.
So this is what we have discovered. Oh, I know. Thank you Jesus. I had not told you this earlier because I didn't get to it yet. We are going back to the cantillations of SaG. We are talking about the light of Adam Kadmon first coming out of the ears, then coming out of the nose, and then coming out of the mouth. Now it is basically the same light. It is all the same light that is inside of Adam Kadmon's head. Some of it comes out of the ears, and from the ears comes down the side of His face to the point of His beard, but all of the light didn't come out. The light that didn't get out of the ears descends and now comes out of His nose, and it comes out of a left and a right nostril, and that descends down by the mouth. Then, whatever light is left inside, there is still light left inside, comes out of His mouth. All of the lights that come out of His ears and His nose and His mouth all get together. They congeal by His mouth. So all of these lights were on the inside of His head, and they filtered, they broke up into three different pathways. Some of the light came out of His ears, some of the light came out of His nose, some of the light came out of His mouth, but in His mouth they all come together again.
So it is just like saying that someone walked through this door, someone came through that door, and someone came through that door, but you all met in the middle of the living room, and you are all here together now. You call came into this house together, let's say three people walked into this house together, and then you spread out into different rooms, and then you came back into this living room from three different rooms. So you came in together, you separated, and you came back together again. So all of this light is meeting in Adam Kadmon's mouth, and there is one vessel, at this point there is one vessel....it is taking me so long to explain it that I forgot the main point again. I guess Satan doesn't want this to get out.
Listen, this is standard Kabbalah. What comes out of the mouth is one vessel and ten Sefirot. Each Sefirot should have its own vessel, but at this point here is just another witness to us that this is an immature stage of the development of Christ in you, the hope of glory. There are ten Sefirot in one vessel. It is like saying there are 10 people inside your head and just you. So we have a proof that this is the immature stage. The Holy Spirit has all the gifts. How many gifts are there? Nine gifts. Well, there are ten Sefirot. Well, that is very interesting, because Kabbalah says that there are ten Sefirot in one vessel, and that, at this point, Adam Kadmon inhales all these lights that get back inside of His head (I'll tell you why He does it), because the lights are the same grade or quality or brightness as the vessel, and if you put light into a vessel and both the light and the vessel are the same grade and the same quality, what's going to happen? You can't see it. The vessel will lose its form. You won't be able to tell the difference.
I'm going to have to put that on the board for you. We will do that after dinner. Just take my word for it at this point that this is traditional Kabbalah, that what happened was Adam Kadmon breathed in all the lights. Now remember, the vessel had ten Sefirot, and the lights had ten Sefirot, and they were all lining up with each other, and the vessel disappeared. Adam Kadmon breathed in the lights, not the vessel, just the lights, and He only sent back nine out of the ten. He only sent back nine out of the ten lights, and, therefore, the lights were misaligned with the vessel so you could see the vessel, and I will put that on the board for you after I erase this board and after dinner. Just take my word for it for now. Only nine lights came back, and that is the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
So here is our proof that this is the Holy Spirit down here that is all female, and then it was the whole cantillations, the Holy Spirit which is the collective lights of the ears, the nose, and the mouth manifesting as the gifts of the spirit all together. Does anybody not understand that? It is a progression. First you understand, then you have a passion for God, then the gifts of the spirit come forth, and your understanding and your passion is manifesting as the gifts of the spirit. So the gifts of the spirit represent everything that came before. So it is actually....see, Kabbalah will tell you that it is the cantillations that go up for the coupling, and now it has been revealed that it is the Holy Spirit that rises up for the coupling with AB, and who is AB?
In our experience, who would AB be? What has to happen to the Holy Spirit for her to receive the male seed?
COMMENT: She has to join with Christ.
PASTOR VITALE: Yes. She has to join with the Spirit of Christ.
So someone with the Holy Spirit has to come into contact with someone who has the Spirit of Christ, and it is not by the laying on of hands. Not anything that I have seen to date would indicate to me that it is even possible for this union to take place by the laying on of hands. The Holy Spirit which is all female can be transferred to another vessel by the laying on of hands, but this union of the Holy Spirit with the AB, with the Spirit of Christ, comes through a relationship, and this is why I tell you all that my ministry...of course many ministries....whatever ministry the Lord sends me outside of this teaching ministry and outside of the people who know me and we all know who each other are, anyone the Lord is drawing He brings me into a relationship with them. They don't even know who I am, and in that relationship there is a transference of spirits. Brethren, there is a transfer to spirits in relationships.
Do not be friends with an angry man. You will become angry. Do not hang out with criminal spirits. You will be tempted, and you might even fall. Do not hang out with fornicators or homosexuals. That spirit will transfer to you. I don't care what the political correctness of this society says today, the Bible says, the Scripture says, the Spirit of God says that whoever you hang out with that's who you like. First of all you are drawn to them because they are like you or because you want to be like them, because you have what's inside of you that's the same thing that's inside of them. That's why you are drawn to them, and if you are drawn to negative people you have to repent and resist and ask God to change the direction of your life.
So that's how people with the Holy Spirit mix with the male AB. They have to come into relationship with someone that has the Spirit of Christ, and then the next thing that happens is that the mature Holy Spirit is born out of the person that has the Holy Spirit which has an experience with someone who has the Spirit of Christ, and it "takes," and they are fertilized, then something comes forth from their forehead. Something is born in their mind, and what is born in their mind is the Son, and that is Christ that comes forth from their mind.
I just hit another snag here. We are told that Kabbalah says that the daughter came forth before the son, so that would have to mean that the second....oh no, I have the answer to that. I have the Kabbalistic answer to that too. Kabbalah says that this second H which is BaN was not supposed to be born, and that lines up with the Doctrine of Christ which says that this whole creation is an extra orbit on the atom, this whole physical world is an extra orbit on the atom of creation and should not be here. Kabbalah says that it was just MaH that came forth, just the son, but He came forth in two stages, his male organ first and his testes second, but the two of them were just MaH until that male organ had thoughts and took action apart from the testes. She then became another entity and fell down underneath the son and became BaN. Does anyone need me to say that again?
So that's how you go. Isn't this exciting? This complicated teaching, and it is all happening to us, and we understand it on this human level. Do you realize that there is a real possibility that the highest Kabbalist in the world do not understand this, because they don't believe in the Holy Spirit. Well, they do believe in the Holy Spirit, but not as we believe in it. I don't know, maybe they understand it on another level. I don't know. It is mind-boggling for me to believe that people could be so brilliant to bring this forth and not understand it, but the Scripture clearly says that even the prophets didn't know what they were talking about. So it is very possible they don't know what they are talking about, and I did read in one Kabbalistic book, they were quoting some very high Kabbalist who said they have been studying day and night for years, and they have all this knowledge, and they really don't understand what it is all about. That I read from another Kabbalist.
Of course, the Scripture says that they are constantly learning and never attaining to a knowledge of the truth. So they really may not know this. Isn't that amazing?
So this is what we've got. The maturation....well first of all, we have a diagram of how you receive the female seed of the Holy Spirit, and you know you can receive that seed of the Holy Spirit either from someone who has the Holy Spirit already which would jump you up to that stage, or you can receive the seed of the Holy Spirit simply by having faith in Jesus Christ. Now when I did our teaching on baptism, I found out years ago that you can have the Holy Spirit. My words may be a little confused, but you can have the Holy Spirit, but not have received the Holy Spirit, that you can have the Holy Spirit by faith, but it is a lesser grade of the Holy Spirit, but it manifests as faith in Jesus Christ. Now, I understand it even more. What that means to me now is either you hear preaching or you read the Bible and you believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and this Tetragrammaton, this female seed gets inside of you, but you cannot say that you have received the Holy Spirit until it comes out of you.
So all of these Baptists and Lutherans and Methodists and maybe some Catholics or other denominations that believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and read the Bible, they may very well have that seed, and it has come to the point of understanding, their ears, that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, but it has not yet come to their nose which is the passion in their heart, and then again it may have come to the passion in their heart. There are evangelist from every denomination I named that have given their lives to go out and spread this word in foreign countries, and they don't speak in tongues. So it went to their ear, and it went to their heart, but it didn't come out of their mouth yet, because when it comes out of your mouth there is tongues. It didn't come out of their mouth yet, but I heard a voice say to me, but it did come out of their mouth, they were preaching the word. No, they were not preaching the word. I'm sorry, they were preaching the gospel of what happened to Jesus. They are not preaching the Holy Word of God, and when you speak in tongues you are preaching the Holy Word of God, as I heard another preacher say many years ago, in baby talk. You don't know what you are saying, but Christ is in there and He is preaching, but Christ has to mature to the point that you understand what He's saying so the true word is coming out of your mouth. That's not the gospel of God. The gospel of Jesus on the cross is not the gospel of God. Neither is it the gospel of salvation.
The gospel of Jesus on the cross cannot save you. Oh, my God! It cannot save you. The gospel of Jesus Christ and what happened to Him on the cross is the first step in an education that, when that education becomes reality, can save you, and that is why the story of Jesus Christ goes to the heathen. That message is not for the Jew. Well, how come you have all these Jews for Jesus? Because most of them are secular Jews that were not even trained in their own religion. What about the rabbis? I don't know these men. I don't know who they were or what kind of rabbis they are. I don't know. I don't know that every rabbi is trained in classic Kabbalah. I don't know that. I don't have any proof of this, but I think not. I could be wrong, but anyone trained in classic Kabbalah, you will not enter into eternal life by someone preaching to you that Jesus Christ is Lord. You have to get it this way.
Maybe I didn't say that right. Maybe you can get it by hearing that Jesus Christ is Lord, but it has to line up with this. You can't get it by saying, Jesus Christ is Lord with the doctrine that's in the church today. They will never come. These people are as sold out to God as we are, and that doctrine in the church is an abomination, and they know it. This is how they are going to get it. Well, isn't this interesting? Any questions or comments? Anybody reading this transcript or listening to this tape that does not understand that when I talk about the daughter and the son, I'm referring to a whole revelation that came forth in a series of messages called The World of Points and The Fall. You can find the transcripts of these messages on our Kabbalah Page or the tapes are available.
The Lord, this morning, has just woven together a whole bunch of ends, and this is not even Lesson 5. I put this whole drawing on the board simply to show you that the writer of the notes that we are studying from, I'm pretty sure he uses voice software, there is a mistake in his notes, that's what I'm saying, but I'm sure it is not that he didn't know that he made a mistake. Either he just wrote it wrong or his secretary wrote it wrong or his voice software took on a life of its own and wrote the wrong thing which has happened to me. I put this whole teaching on the board to explain to you that those of you who have copies of the notes, that there is an error in his first sentence. So we are going to try to go out to dinner, and I will decide whether or not to leave this Part 11 or whether to change the name. I'll see what the Lord says.
Any questions or comments. I hope this has hit you, you are all looking at me. Maybe it really hasn't gotten into you yet, but this is very, very exciting what God did this morning. OK, God bless you.
COMMENT: I was glad when you talked about the daughter, because the Scripture says that the Father said "Let us make man in our image." And the daughter coming forth first didn't sit right with me, and now that you are saying that it is the first stage of the son, that is a little more explanatory.
PASTOR VITALE: OK, the Scripture that you refer to where the Lord said, "Let us make man in our image," that is referring to Adam, mankind, and mankind consists of both the male and the female. It didn't say "let us make a male." I don't know if you remember the teaching, the difference between man and male is that a man is a being that has both male and female elements with the male predominant, and the difference between a woman and a female is that a woman is a being that has both male and female elements with the female predominant. (End of Tape 1)
Also, let me remind you from our series The World of Points and The Fall that Adam is the married son. See, over here we talk about the son coming forth, but this son is going to marry the daughter. The testes is going to marry the male organ, and the whole genitalia is called Adam. "Let us make man," that's the man that is going to be made in Jehovah's image, is the married son, the union of the son and the daughter. So it is even more, when the Lord said "Let us make man in our image," He's even talking about a more mature aspect of the son than the son that was born from the cantillations in AB. He's talking about the married son. When God says, "Let us make something," He's talking about the finished product, and then all of the powers of creation go forth to produce what God has said "let us make." Got it? OK.
Praise the Lord, we are back from dinner, and Drawing #2 is before you. Drawing #2, the general Tetragrammaton or sometimes called the general Sefirot, I think. That keeps coming into my mind, the general Sefirot, but, for some reason, I have it on the board as the general Tetragrammaton, YHVH. Whether I say Sefirot or Tetragrammaton, when I say the general Sefirot or the general YHVH, what does that word "general" mean concerning the Tetragrammaton?
COMMENT: The first one or the original one.
PASTOR VITALE: Well, that's true, but more than that. Add to that. What does it mean, where is it located?
COMMENT: The Eyn Sof? Keter?
PASTOR VITALE: No. You got half of it right. Where is it located? Where is the general Tetragrammaton, a general Sefirot, meaning the first ten Sefirot, where are they located? Where? Inside where?
COMMENT: The halal?
PASTOR VITALE: No.
COMMENT: Inside of Adam Kadmon?
PASTOR VITALE: Yes, inside of Adam Kadmon.
We are talking about inside or outside of Adam Kadmon, that's what we are studying. So the general Sefirot or the general Tetragrammaton is inside of Adam Kadmon, and in the earlier part of this message talked a lot about the SaG of the general Tetragrammaton emerging to the outside of Adam Kadmon, and we had some information about what happened after SaG of the general Tetragrammaton emerged to the outside of Adam Kadmon.
What we have on the board on Drawing #2 is a statement that I suspect most Kabbalists would be very offended at, but I believe that I can support what I'm saying. The general Tetragrammaton in The World of Action is inside of a mortal man. There is a Kabbalistic law that says that which is above is also below. Everything that is above is also below, so I don't understand why, except that there is a veil over their eyes, they would have this problem believing that everything that happened above is manifesting on some level down here in The World of Action, and why they cannot understand that the glory of God can be inside of a man, because that's the way the creation is manifesting in this world.
The Kabbalistic Jew, as there are Christian Kabbalists, would tell you that is idolatry to believe that the glory that is Keter is appearing in flesh, or took on flesh, is idolatry. But it is not idolatry. To me, it is the most obvious truth of Kabbalah that there was an empty space created. Adam Kadmon was formed in the empty space, the light of the Eyn Sof entered into Adam Kadmon, and the whole purpose of the creation is that there should be an opposite or at least a visible opposite or opposite in form, an opposite of the Eyn Sof in form, and that the Eyn Sof should inhabit that form, should be in the midst of that form. As men, we are the form, and, as I told you on a previous message, it doesn't mean that all of the Eyn Sof is inside of us. Of course, that's impossible. The Eyn Sof is unlimited. Just His pinkie maybe or His finger or just an aspect of the Eyn Sof indwells, or a drop of the Eyn Sof, can indwell each human being.
To me, it is the most logical thing in the world. I don't understand why they resist it, but this is me, and that's them. So, therefore, from this point of view, that I truly believe that which is above is also below, and that this world below is in the process of being made into an accurate reflective image of that which is above. So if that is the case, if everything that's happening above in the highest planes is happening in every plane of consciousness then there has to be some vessel that a seed is sown in. There has to be some vessel that, Kabbalistic speaking, the Hebrew letters are appearing in, because the first thing that appeared in the halel were the Hebrew letters, and the first word that the Hebrew letters formed was YHVH. So it has to be happening down here too.
I dare to suggest to you, because this is what the Lord told me, that we fallen mortal man, we are the the very inaccurate image at this time, the very, very inaccurate reflective image of Adam Kadmon, we are the exact opposite of Him. He is immortal, we are mortal, He's perfect, we are imperfect, He's righteous, we are unrighteous. We are the exact opposite of Him, but, nevertheless, we are the beings that are formed from His essence down here in The World of Action. So, obviously, a correction has to come forth because we don't look like our master, you see. We don't look like Him at all, but, nevertheless, we are made of His substance.
So there is a problem here, but we are still made of His substance, and the law still applies that, that which is above is also happening below. What's more, it is happening simultaneously, so Adam Kadmon above was found with His seed inside of Him, the general Sefirot or the general Tetragrammaton, and we, down here, His very, very inaccurate image down here in The World of Action also find ourselves with His seed inside of us. Only human beings that are born of this world are not born with the seed of Adam Kadmon or with the seed of the Lord Jesus Christ. I would not argue with you over that at this point. If you want to stay in Kabbalistic terms, I will tell it to you this way. Every human being born of a woman is not born with the seed of God in the midst of them. They are born with the seed of the who?
COMMENT: Fiery Serpent?
PASTOR VITALE: The seed of the Serpent. The Fiery Serpent is the seed of the Serpent. The seed of the Serpent.
Mortal men are born with the seed of the Serpent, and Adam Kadmon is saying," hey, man, you don't look like me, but I have a commission from the Eyn Sof to make you look like me, so you have to start looking like me all you mortal men, and the way I'm going to start the process that is going to make you look like me is by giving you a seed." Doesn't that make sense? And Jesus said, and a sower went out to sow seed, Luke 8:5, and a sower went out to sow seed, to sow the seed of the Kingdom of God into the vessels of The World of Action that are as opposite to what the image of Adam Kadmon could be as is possible, or is as far from what we should be as is possible.
The Greek word used in Luke 8:5 is Strong's #4703. It is the Greek word "spr-os," and it means spore. The Lord gave me this study years ago. I was amazed to find out there is more than...actually, there are three kinds of seed, but for our study tonight we will just talk about two. I think there are three kinds of seed mentioned in the New Testament, if I'm not mistaken. Maybe it is just two.
So the seed that is sown is a spore. It is a specific kind of seed called a spore, and what is a spore? A spore is a single-celled reproductive body. What does that mean, reproductive body? It has the ability to reproduce itself. It is a single cell that has the ability to reproduce itself. It is also highly resistant to drying out. Isn't that interesting? The seed we are talking about is the Holy Spirit. It is highly resistant to drying out. It is not easy to kill the Holy Spirit once it has rooted in a man. It can happen, but it is not easy to do. You have to have the cooperation of the man. You have to really turn your back on God, really consciously, willfully, turn your back on God and walk away for the Holy Spirit to dry up in you.
I don't believe that could happen by accident or by seduction. I think if you are under a seduction, at some point, at some point, you are going to wake up and say, wow something is really wrong with my life. If you have been under a seduction for five years, which hopefully it wouldn't take that long for you to realize something is wrong, you have to realize that something is wrong, at which point you can make a conscious decision to pray to God and say, Lord, what's wrong? Or you could keep on walking. Praise the Lord.
So a spore is a single cell reproductive body which is highly resistant to drying out, and is capable of growing into a new organism. Look, when I lay hands on you or when anyone who has the Holy Spirit lays hands on someone else, and that seed travels by the spirit by the laying on of hands into another human being, that Holy Spirit in me has reproduced itself in you. And we know that the Holy Spirit can be transferred by the laying on of hands. The seed goes from one man to another. That's the spr-os of Jesus Christ.
The Holy Spirit also exists, according to the Kabbalists, if I'm not mistaken they identify the Holy Spirit with what we would call the spirit of revelation, and I don't know if they are exactly....they cannot be exactly the same thing, because the spirit of revelation that we have comes from the Glorified Jesus Christ, so there is an element in the spirit of revelation that the Holy Spirit of the Kabbalists doesn't have, but I'm not equipped at this time to compare the two; however, the Holy Spirit of the Kabbalists or the Jew manifests itself to the Jew as prophecy. I think when we, the church, or the body of Christ, when we think about the Holy Spirit, I don't know about you, but I don't particularly think about prophecy. I think about the whole nine gifts of the spirit. Prophecy is one of them.
Actually, if you would ask me which gift I would identify most strongly with the Holy Spirit....well, let me ask you. What gift would you identify, get ready, you have time to think, most with the Holy Spirit?
PASTOR VITALE: OK what gift?
PASTOR VITALE: That's interesting. Maybe I didn't make my question clear.
Let me rephrase the question. If you are going into a church, a large church of 2,000 people, and you are seeking to identify the people who have received the Holy Spirit, what is the most obvious gift that would help you to identify the people that have received the Holy Spirit?
COMMENT: Speaking in tongues.
PASTOR VITALE: What would you say?
PASTOR VITALE: Do you think most of the people in the church have peace? What would you say? It's speaking in tongues. That is the most obvious gift that if you don't have it, it is said that you haven't received the Holy Spirit.
Receive the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues. So when I lay hands on you, and you start speaking in tongues, you are a new organism that belongs to the collective organism called, it is not the body of Christ, but there is a body of the Holy Spirit because that came forth this morning. What we are doing now is reviewing what came forth this morning. That vessel that comes out of Adam Kadmon's mouth, the vessel with the ten Sefirot in it is the body of the Holy Spirit. There is a body of the Holy Spirit. Praise the Lord.
Now this is the Holy Spirit, this word spr-os, meaning spore in English, this is the Holy Spirit which can reproduce itself in another human being, but the Holy Spirit lacks the male sperm. That's the Doctrine of Christ. I've been teaching that for years.
Then we go to Galatians 3:16 which says, And to thy seed which is Christ. The same English word used in Galatians 3:16 as in Luke 8:5, the English word seed, And to thy seed which is Christ. The Greek word translated seed in Galatians 3:16 is Strong's #4690, the Greek word sperma. A totally, completely different word, both translated seed, and the English of sperma is sperm. The Greek word sperma means "seed including the male sperm." This is a definition of seed. I haven't quoted the dictionary that I used, but the definition of seed means "including the male sperm." So a spore is a single cell organism that can reproduce itself, but a sperm or a sperma or a seed that the Greeks call sperma is a reproductive organ that also contains the male sperm.
What does that identify? That identifies the daughter. She is male and female, and this is the Spirit of Christ. That is the point that was brought out this morning. We are reviewing it and putting it on the board so you can look at this. You don't have to listen to the whole tape or wait for the transcript. We are making individual drawings of it.
The lights that come out of Adam Kadmon's mouth signify the Holy Spirit appearing in individuals, and the daughter...the teaching of Kabbalah, the daughter that is born, the second coupling of Abba and Imma, is the birth of the Spirit of Christ. Please note that the Holy Spirit is not born. The Holy Spirit emerges, but the Spirit of Christ is born. We are going to have to change the name of the tape again. Are there any questions on this? We are going to take a picture, and we are going to go on.
Drawing #3, The World of Action and the emergence of the Holy Spirit, that which is above is below. Everything that's happening is happening on all planes of consciousness simultaneously, but it is happening in each plane of consciousness in a unique way. Down here in The World of Action, we, mortal humanity and the individual members thereof, are standing in the stead of the glorious, unfathomable Adam Kadmon. Now this is not idolatry. We are the image of Him, not the nature of Him, not the glory of Him, but the malformed image of Him that is appearing in The World of Action. It makes perfect sense to me.
So we are talking about the emergence of the Holy Spirit and The World of Action, and I want to make it clear to you that this is the interweaving of doctrinal Kabbalah and the Doctrine of Christ, and from the Kabbalistic point of view there is nothing said about the Holy Spirit concerning the mouth of Adam Kadmon. This is a real mixture. The general Sefirot of the general Tetragrammaton is sown inside mortal man, inside human beings, because we are born with the seed of the Serpent, and it is the intention of our merciful, loving, Almighty God to correct the error and to form us in the image of Adam Kadmon. And in order to do that we need the seed of the holy constellation inside of us, and the name of that seed or the personal name that we know it by is the Holy Spirit.
So Jesus said, A sower went forth to sow seed. And the seed that he sowed was the female seed called a spore, and we previously explained to you the difference between the female seed, the spore, and the male seed, sperma. Not even the male seed, but the sperma that contains both male and female.
Now, this is all review. We have the general Tetragrammaton here, and it is the SaG that comes forward. The general Tetragrammaton is on the inside, the SaG of the general Tetragrammaton emerges to the outside, and SaG is represented by the Hebrew letter H. The SaG emerges to the outside of mortal man through three filters, and those three filters are found in the cantillations, that's the English word, and the ta'amim, that's the Hebrew word. The three filters appear through the ta'amim of the SaG of the general Tetragrammaton. Look at the drawing. Here is the general Tetragrammaton, the first H came down, and the first H or the HeY is a Tetragrammaton in itself, YHVH. The ta'amim is the YOD, the nekudot is the H, the tagin is the V'AV, and the otiyot is the H.
The lights that are coming forth from the spiritual head of the mortal man, because we are in Adam Kadmon's stead now, right? The lights that are coming forth from the spiritual head of the mortal man are coming from the YOD of the YHVH that is the SaG of the Tetragrammaton. If you don't get it, don't trip over it. I know it is very confusing, but this H, this first H of the Tetragrammaton is a whole Tetragrammaton in itself called SaG (63), and the first letter of that Tetragrammaton, SaG (63) is the ta'amim, and the ta'amim in itself has another Tetragrammaton, and the SaG, that's the first H of the ta'amim is the....it is through the SaG of the ta'amim that the spiritual ears of mortal man. I'm sorry. I've got that all tripped up.
The light that came from the inside, from the seed, is coming outside. The light that's going to bring forth faith in God for the Jew, faith in Jesus Christ for the Christian, that light is coming forth from the H of the ta'amim of the SaG of the general Tetragrammaton. That's the spiritual ears of mortal man. This is the H of the ta'amim. The lights coming out of the spiritual ears of the mortal man, that's SaG, and when you have that experience or when any man has that experience, the fruit of that experience is that he has faith in God. If he is a Jew, he has faith in God. If he's a Christian, he has faith in Jesus Christ. It is not something in your head. It is real, it is understanding, it is a true belief that comes forth from you, it is a reality, and every human being that has truly had that experience has already entered into the creative process as it is manifesting here in The World of Action. Isn't that interesting? Everything that happened in Genesis 1 is happening to us, within us.
Once you get that seed inside of you, if you have faith in Jesus Christ or if you are a Jew and you have faith in the God of the Jew, OK, and you have a fervor to pursue God, your heart is panting after God, you know that the light that comes from that seed that was sown in you is now emerging from the filter of the V'AV of your spiritual or your metaphorical head, which is the spiritual nose of the mortal man, that's MaH , the V'AV of the Tetragrammaton. The light that comes out of the spiritual nose produces a fervor to pursue God. What does that have to do with your nose, you say? Kabbalah teaches that the nose of Adam Kadmon is associated with the heart of Adam Kadmon, because the light of Adam Kadmon's nose only becomes visible when it reaches the heart area. What are you talking about Sheila?
Well if you picture the whole face, the light coming out of the ears, and the light coming out of the nose are pretty much in the same area of the face. The light coming out of the ears shines down to the tip of Adam Kadmon's beard, and the light of the ears shines more brightly in the light of the nose. So when the light of the ears and the light of the nose are shining in the same place, all that you can see is the light of the ears. You can only see the brighter light. Does that make sense? Are you OK?
The light of the nose continues to shine beyond the tip of the beard, and it shines down to the heart. So as soon as we pass the place where the light of the ears no longer shines, then we see the light of the nose which is in the heart area. Is that OK? Do you have that? I will put that on the board for you as soon as we get this off the board.
Now when the light that's inside of you comes out through the filter of the BaN or the spiritual mouth of the ta'amim of the SaG of the general Sefirot, when that happens and the light comes out through your spiritual mouth the expression of it is two-fold. It comes out two-fold. It comes out as a vessel, and it comes out as inner light. So the emergence of the Holy Spirit, the vessel of the Holy Spirit, as far as I know right now you cannot see that. It is just that you have the structure of the Holy Spirit. Did you ever hear anybody pray for somebody and say,"I know you've got the Holy Spirit, I know you've got it, I know those tongues are in you, now come on, just start speaking in tongues or just go home and believe you've got it, because God told me that you got it," and then I've heard these people, and they have a testimony that by the time they get home they are speaking in tongues for the whole night, and they can't stop.
So first you get the structure, the vessel of the Holy Spirit, and then the evidence of it will emerge from your mouth in the form of tongues. I've heard Jehovah's witnesses and people of all kinds of faiths say to me when I was a Pentecostal, I wouldn't call myself a Pentecostal now, but I've had a Pentecostal experience, they would say to me, "We have the Holy Spirit too. What do you mean when you say we don't have it if we don't speak in tongues, we have the Holy Spirit?" A Jehovah's Witness told me that once. And how do I know, maybe he does. How do I know he doesn't? Well, the Jehovah's Witnesses don't believe Jesus Christ is God. Well, I don't know what that man has. The Jehovah's Witnesses Bible has enough Bible in it that I don't know what that man has. I know he has not received the Holy Spirit if he's not speaking in tongues, but if he tells me that he has faith in God, who am I to say "no" unless the Lord tells me. What do I know? It is hard to tell. You have to observe a man's lifestyle, and I'm not doing that unless God is telling me to do it.
If someone comes to me and says, "I have the Holy Spirit," I'll say OK, unless the Lord comes to me and for the Lord's purposes says, "Sheila, that's not true." Why would the Lord do that? What would the Lord's purpose be? Perhaps the Lord wants to give him the real thing. God is good, and His mercy endureth forever.
It is possible to have the Holy Spirit and not have the expression of the Holy Spirit, but this is a very fine line now. You can have the Holy Spirit in the form of faith. See, you cannot say you've received the Holy Spirit until there is proof that you have received it. Received it. OK, that's the catch-word. We are not baptized with the Holy Spirit. The apostles were baptized with the Holy Spirit. Those of us who speak in tongues have received the Holy Spirit. If you believe you have the Holy Spirit, but you don't speak in tongues then you have the baptism of faith for the Holy Spirit. It is possible that He's in there and He has not come out, but only God knows, and I'm not going to argue with you about it.
The word is,"Receive the Holy Spirit." You do not have the evidence of speaking in tongues....that means....let's say you have the Holy Spirit, but you are not speaking in tongues. Let's say it is true. OK, we both have the Holy Spirit, but different degrees of it. Can you understand that, that there is different degrees of light. You have the Holy Spirit, and it is manifesting as faith. I have the Holy Spirit, and it is manifesting as tongues. I don't believe you can have tongues if you don't have faith. So the Holy Spirit manifesting as tongues is just the next step. It is just the next stage. Is everybody OK with this?
The three expressions of the Holy Spirit as the Holy Spirit emerges from the seed that was sown in you, and as it emerges to the outside of you manifests as faith in God which is pretty much in your mind, fervor to pursue God which is your heart, manifests in your heart, and the expression of the Holy Spirit as witnessed by the speaking in tongues which usually makes you an "on-fire" Pentecostal, jumping up and down, banging a tambourine, screaming and yelling which I did for about five years. Those are the outward signs that a seed was truly sown in you. Is everybody OK? Can we take a picture of this?
Drawing #4 is our friend, Adam Kadmon, and I am attempting to show you why the light of the ears is set to shine only in the area of the heart. The light of the ears, did I say the light of the ears? The light of the nose, excuse me, is set to shine only in the are of the heart. The light of the ears, I've indicated with dashes. As that light descends from the ears to the tip of Adam Kadmon's beard, I don't know how clearly you can see it on the photograph. I am sure Xxxx will make it clear in her illustrations. The way the beard of Adam Kadmon, the way I've seen it drawn in Kabbalistic books is just these hairs extending out from his chin, but if I were drawing a beard I would draw a beard that came to a point, but I don't see it drawn that way. I'm drawing it as I have seen it drawn.
I've indicated that the light of the nose as little circles. So you can see that the whole front of Adam Kadmon's face is covered by a mixture of the light that comes from the ears and the light that comes from the nose, because when the light comes out of the ears it spreads. It goes down the side of His face, it shines on the front of His face.
Now, the light of the ears is brighter than the light of the nose. So when you have two grades of light shining in the same place, the lesser grade of light becomes invisible. All you can see is the brightness. So even though you can see from our diagram that the light of the nose is present all over Adam Kadmon's face and over the area where His beard appears, the light of the nose only becomes visible when the light of the ears stop shining. Where the light of the ears are no longer shining, that's where you can see the light of the nose, and that is from the tip of Adam Kadmon's beard down to His heart center. That is not particularly pertinent to this message, but it did come forth while I was expounding on Drawing #3, so I just wanted to put it on the board for you to make it clearer. Any questions about this? OK, we will take a picture and we will go on.
Drawing #5, The World of Action, the mouth of Adam Kadmon, one vessel, ten Sefirot, nine gifts of the spirit. We have an A and a B. I didn't mark it A and B, but it is the left side of the board and the right side of the board. I have attempted to show you the vessel, this outer shell is the vessel, and the inner part of this vessel is the light. The outer vessel is indicated....there are ten Sefirot indicated on the outer vessel, and ten Sefirot indicated for the inner light. The inner light has ten Sefirot, and the vessel has ten Sefirot, and you can see that, initially, they are completely lined up. The Keter is lined up....the Keter of the inner light is lined up with the Keter of the vessel. The Chokhmah of the inner light is lined up with the Chokhmah of the vessel. The Binah of the inner light is lined up with Binah. Chesed of the inner light is lined up with Chesed, and all the way down to Malkhut.
Now, the vessel and the inner light are the same grade. So when the inner light pours into the vessel, the two sources of light blend together. Can everybody see that? The vessel is made of light, and you pour light of the same substance into it, the form of the vessel dissolves, and the vessel disappears. This means that the vessel which is the Holy Spirit would have to be recreated every time the light is poured into the individual, and that's not practical. So this is the solution to the problem. The solution to the problem is to withdraw the light, not the vessel, but to withdraw this light out of the vessel, and Isaac Luria says that Adam Kadmon inhaled the light, inhaled the light. The solution to the problem is to withdraw the light, not the vessel. The vessel stays outside, the light is drawn back inside, and to retain the Keter inside permanently.
Only nine of the ten Sefirot are going to be poured back out into the vessel. The remaining nine Sefirot that re-enter the vessel would then be misaligned. Do you know what misaligned means? Chokhmah is lined up with Keter. The Chokhmah of the light is inside the Keter Sefirot of the vessel, the Binah light is within the Chesed...maybe I did it backwards. Chokhmah, Binah, Keter, Chokhmah. OK, I thought this was Chesed, but it is Chokhmah. That's wrong. I am showing you the misalignment of the Sefirot of the inner light with the Sefirot of the vessel.
The light of Binah is within the Sefirot Chokhmah, and the light of the Sefirot Chesed is within the Sefirot of the vessel Binah, and so it goes on that the Sefirot of light that's lined up with the Sefirot of the vessel is...the Sefirot of the light is weaker than the Sefirot of the vessel. Is everybody OK? And the only way we can do this is by withdrawing the Keter inside and not letting it come back. So the inner light in its reconfiguration is weakened light. It is weaker than it was originally intended to be. It sacrificed for the purpose of the maintaining the integrity of the vessel.
The inner light is sacrificed, and, according to the rabbi that we are studying with, this inner light is male in comparison to the vessel, and he says, and I don't have any witness either way to this yet, that this is the origins or this is the roots of the weakness that we find in the male or our society. Very frequently the male is weaker than the female in a lot of ways. The male is weaker than the female. This is really true, and that is why it is so important that if you are married you don't emasculate your husband, because it is very hard to be a man. That is a lot of responsibility and a lot of burden, and women have a lot of power to make or break a man, and the rabbi that is giving the course that I'm taking says that this weakening of the inner light for the purpose of maintaining the integrity of the vessel is the genesis or the roots of what brought forth this condition that the male, even thought the man has the authority, but he's weaker than the woman. I haven't really thought about that yet, but that's what he says.
So Malkhut is left in darkness. Only nine Sefirot came back into a vessel that consists of ten Sefirot and Malkhut is left in darkness. Malkhut is the visible world, so in this case the visible world that we are talking about is the individual human being. The only time the individual human being is enlightened is when the light of the Holy Spirit is shining through them, and we can have the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit doesn't shine through us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so when that light shines that's when the human vessel is enlightened. They receive prophecy and tongues, and the anointing is on them, they can get healing, they can get miracles.
So we are talking about the genesis of the Holy Spirit and the nine gifts of the spirit that comes with the Holy Spirit to a mortal man. This is a stage of the Kabbalistic doctrine of the light of the ears, nose, and mouth of Adam Kadmon. Isn't that interesting? We are going to take a picture, and if I can do it without taking too much time, I'm going to try to line up these nine Sefirot with the nine gifts of the spirit. If I can't do it tonight....I have decided to end this message here, it is just too late to go on. So we will make this Part 1, and, Lord willing, on Thursday night we will finish this up, and that will also give me some time to be able to pray about associating the gifts of the spirit that appear in the New Testament with the descriptions of the nine Sefirot that are available in Kabbalistic texts. Does anyone have any questions or comments before we close for the night? OK, God bless you all.
