            Praise the Lord, it has been quite a while since we preached Part 4 of this message because we stopped after part 4 to do another whole series, an 11 part series called "Pregnancy, Suckling, and Childhood", which gives us the information that we need to go on with this study, Gate Of Reincarnations. We stopped at a very difficult part, you know one of the literary techniques of Isaac Luria and his student Chayyim Vital, is they start teaching with the most difficult material. My carnal mind would like the teaching to start with easy material and build up my ability to understand, but that is not the way it is.

 

            I have looked forward in the material and I believe the section or the concepts that I am trying to convey to you now, from what I can see through chapter 4, I have looked through the notes of chapter 4, that what we are focusing on right now is the hardest of everything I have seen in the first 4 chapters, so I am going to back up a little bit since it has been several months since I preached part 4, to give you a little background and try to make these last principles a little clearer to you before we go on. Praise the Lord.

 

            We are looking at drawing #1, and we are talking about the rectification of the soul, all human beings today are on the level of Malkhut, the question is where in Malkhut is our soul rooted, what does that mean? It means that every human being appearing in the earth has a spiritual root, just like a plant that you would see in a Garden, you would see the leaves and the fruit, and the stem, but there are roots that go down under the ground that nobody can see. The Scripture likens men to spiritual plants, that means the part of us that you see walking around here on the earth, even though I can lift my feet up, and you cannot see anything attached to me, there are still spiritual roots that are attached to me, that are invisible to the human eye, which go down into the spiritual earth. Each one of us is a spiritual plant that has grown up out of a spiritual root, that is rooted in one of the levels of the spiritual earth, if you can hear that. Now depending on where our root is grounded, that will determine the degree of spirituality that we manifest in this world.  We see people and we have people in this ministry who have made an incredibly powerful effort to implement everything that has been taught here, and they are still struggling to become spiritual people. We have people coming in now I mean these people have been studying here for eleven years, we have people walking in now that are more spiritual than the people here with all of their efforts, how could that happen?

 

            The reason is the level of soul that you are rooted in. Now the, I have told you here many times over the years that most, very frequently spiritual people, or highly spiritual people are unstable, are emotionally unstable, being a highly spiritual person requires your spirituality to be contained in a very reliable soul, and the soul is our personality. To be highly spiritual and emotionally unstable is not a good combination, you will suffer in this world if that is your condition. Now going back years when we were still preaching the doctrine of Christ we taught that both Abel and Cain have to be educated, and Cain is our natural man, Cain is our ignorant dumb animal.

 

            The way I preached it several years ago was that Cain had to be developed socially, had to learn how to communicate, had to learn how to handle his money, had to learn how to have healthy relationships with other people, because all of these social skills will stabilize you and root you into a healthy safe place when your spirit starts ascending. If you are not rooted and grounded in a stable personality with healthy habits in this world by working for your income, humbly labor for the bread that you feed yourself with, if you do not have good social habits, the ascent of your spirit is going to destabilize you to the point that you can have emotional problems, the extreme of which would be an emotional breakdown.

 

            It is very important that our lifestyle in this world is stable, if we are going to go on spiritually, because spiritual ascension in the form of an unstable lifestyle can be disastrous to the individual. Now there have been people who have wanted to come to these meetings and I have not let them in for various reasons because I know that certain personality types or certain lifestyles or a certain level of lifestyles, if I feel the person is not mature enough, they will never stand for what is going on here, and you cannot come in here and just learn doctrine, because you will wind up getting hurt very badly. If you come here you are going to also come under a program that will fine tune your social skills and if you cannot handle that, this ministry is not for you because you cannot come here and just learn high spiritual philosophy, the Lord does not allow it, and therefore I do not allow it.

 

            We are talking about the root of our soul, we are talking about the location in the invisible spiritual earth, that we have arisen out of because we are all a spiritual plant that began its existence from a seed that is planted in one of the levels of spiritual earth and we have grown up and appeared on the surface or in this visible world. Now according to Kabbalah, every human being on the face of the earth is either, well I do not know if Kabbalah says that, because Kabbalah just talks about the Jew actually, I have to take that back, Kabbalah talks just about the Jew, so Kabbalah says, some men are rooted in the Yesod of the Malkhut of the 10 general Sefirot, and some men are rooted in the Malkhut of the Malkhut of the ten general Sefirot.

 

            I am looking at drawing #1, we have 10 general Sefirot, Keter through Malkhut, Malkhut has a set of subjective Sefirot, then Sefirot that arise out of the Malkhut of the general 10, and then the Malkhut of the, well let me say this first, this set of subjective Sefirot, this 10 Sefirot which are the subjective Sefirot of the Malkhut of the 10 general Sefirot, has a name, and that, that name is a partzuf, and that name is Asiyah. Now this can get confusing because we know that the name of the material world that we live in or the world of action is Asiyah, but here we have a partzuf, we have 10 subjective Sefirot arising out of the Malkhut of the 10 general Sefirot, and this 10 subjective Sefirot are known collectively as Asiyah, now not the world of Asiyah but they are called Asiyah.

 

            Kabbalah teaches that all of the Jews that would apply to the Christians today, either arise out of the Malkhut of Asiyah, we can say this two ways, we can say the Malkhut of Asiyah or we can say the Malkhut of the Malkhut of the 10 general Sefirot. I think it is less confusing to say the Malkhut of Asiyah, does anyone not understand what Asiyah is over here? Kabbalah says that the Jew, and we will say the Christian also, is either rooted out of Malkhut of Asiyah or Yesod of Asiyah.  What Kabbalah is saying is that even though the Jews have fallen away from their high exalted position that Jehovah gave to them on Mount Sinai, they have fallen, and we know that the Jew has fallen, it says so in the Psalms, we have fallen oh God, we have fallen. According to the Kabbalists the Jews have fallen only as far as Yesod and Malkhut of Asiyah. Now a couple of minutes ago I applied this teaching to the Christians, but the Lord just corrected me, and this is what the Lord has just told me, the Jews as a nation were raised to a very high spiritual place on Mount Sinai, and therefore when they fell, this is as far as they fell, to Yesod or Malkhut of Asiyah, but the Christians today, by in large, are coming from a place that where their ancestors were, where their spiritual heredity was never raised up to that high place that the Jews were raised up to on Mount Sinai.

 

            If you are a Christian today it is possible that you are the descendent of someone who was not present at Mount Sinai, in which event you could be rooted in a much lower place then the world of Asiyah, a much lower place then Malkhut of Asiyah, you can be rooted in a much lower place than that.  I believe that a lot of the Christians today are descendants of the 10 tribes of Israel that have been dispersed. If you are a Christian today and you are a descendant of one of the 10 tribes of Israel, the chances are that you are rooted in Malkhut or Yesod of Asiyah, but we do not know. We do not know who the Christians are today, we do not know whether you are from one of the 10 lost tribes, or you are from one of the nations and your ancestors were not present at all in Mount Sinai.

 

            This is what the Lord has just told me, I have no information at this time on how low down the root could be of a person in this world, I have no information, as to that, so I am just going to, I am not going to pursue that thought, because I do not have any information, I am just going to follow our outline which is Kabbalah, now this is the principle that applies to you, no matter what your root is, no matter what your root of origin is, this principle applies to you. Well first of all let me tell you this, all of us are trying to ascend this ladder and ultimately if the Lord permits, ascend as high as possible, possibly to the Keter of the 10 general Sefirot which would make us supernatural giants in the flesh on the earth. That is where Jesus was. Now, please bear with me, the Kabbalists say that the Messiah, of course they do not believe that Jesus was Messiah, the Kabbalists say that Messiah will ascend to the Malkhut, I am sorry, to the Keter of Malkhut, because Malkhut of the 10 general Sefirot represents the physical earth or the world of Asiyah.

 

            As long as we are in the flesh the Kabbalists say, it is possible to only ascend as high as the Keter of the Malkhut, can you understand that? The Malkhut has 10 subjective Sefirot underneath it, the Kabbalists say most people today or most Jews today either are rooted in the Malkhut or the Yesod of the Malkhut of the 10 general Sefirot, and Messiah when he appears will be rooted in the Keter of the Malkhut of the 10 general Sefirot.  I am going to go with that, what just happened was I just corrected something that I said.

 

            I just said, our hope is to ascend to the Keter of the ten general Sefirot, and the Lord corrected me because as long as we are in the flesh, as high as we could go, we could only go as high as the Keter of the flesh world which is Malkhut.

 

             Now the Lord Jesus Christ who is glorified, He is up here in the Keter of the 10 general Sefirot, but anything higher than the Malkhut of the 10 general Sefirot is out of the material body, it is out of the material body. Now, the Yesod of the 10 general Sefirot, this is, now this is not what the Kabbalists say, I am not going to get into that now, let me finish my review here, we will do that another time.  I am going to be teaching this now from a point of view that the Christians listening to this message if you are a Jew listening to this message, then you could believe that you are rooted either in the Malkhut or the Yesod of Asiyah, and if you are a Christian I am going to suggest that you believe that unless the Lord tells you otherwise, that you are rooted in the Malkhut or the Yesod of Asiyah.

 

            Now remember we are, this is Christ Centered Kabbalah, we are teaching Lurianic Kabbalah and we are bringing correction as the Lord shows us through the doctrine of Christ. Lurianic Kabbalah teaches that the way you ascend, the goal is to ascend from the Malkhut of the 10 general to the, I cannot do it this way, I am going to have to give you another drawing. Let me finish this board. Underneath the Malkhut of Asiyah we have another set of subjective Sefirot, we have the 10 subjective Sefirot of the Malkhut of Asiyah, does everybody understand that? This is so confusing, I think I am making it as clear as I can, now, this subjective 10 Sefirot of the Malkhut of Asiyah which is the Malkhut of the Malkhut of Malkhut of the 10 general Sefirot, can be named exactly that way, the Malkhut of Asiyah is also called the Malkhut of the Malkhut of the 10 general Sefirot, or the Malkhut of the Nefesh of Asiyah.

 

            Now that is not quite so obvious, but the Sefirot Malkhut, is the equivalent of the Nefesh level of soul, the Nefesh level of soul as opposed, and when we talk about levels of soul, we are talking bout Nefesh, Ruach, Neshamah, Chayyah, and Yechida. If everybody is all right, we are going to take a picture, I am going to try and break this down as much as I can for you.

 

            Drawing #2, now I am trying to convey to you the principle of the rectification of the soul, a level of soul at a time.  Let me remind you that there are 5 levels of soul, Nefesh, Ruach, Neshamah, Chayyah, and Yechida, and I am pointing to the 5 Partzufim of the 10 general Sefirot, that is what I am pointing to right now. Now the Nefesh level of soul is in the world of Asiyah which is the Malkhut of the 10 general Sefirot, so everything above Malkhut of the 10 general Sefirot is out of the body, or is beyond the body. Ze'ir Anpin, the Ruach level of soul of the 10 general Sefirot for example would be the collective body of Christ. Now each of us has Christ within us and we are a part of a body of Christ that exists on a higher level, that is the Ze'ir Anpin of the 10 general Sefirot, that is where Christ Jesus the collective Christ Jesus is, the true body of Christ. We are somewhere in the realm of Malkhut of the 10 general Sefirot and Malkhut of the 10 general Sefirot is the Nefesh level of soul. Every, the whole world that is in the flesh is Malkhut of the 10 general Sefirot or below.

 

              We are dealing with right now all that we are dealing with is the Malkhut of the 10 general Sefirot and the 10 general Sefirot is what? That is the world of Atzilut, it is way above us, and everything below.

 

            Malkhut is the Nefesh level of soul and has 10 subjective Sefirot that make up the Nefesh level of soul which is also the world of Asiyah, she has her own 10 Sefirot, and those 10 Sefirot have a collective name, there is a partzuf that consists of the 10 subjective Sefirot of the Malkhut of the 10 general Sefirot and that collective name is Asiyah. We see that the Asiyah level of soul or the Nefesh level of soul has its own name, its own personal name Asiyah. The Nefesh level of soul has its own identification, it is called Asiyah, and then Asiyah which is the Nefesh level of soul begins to be broken down, Asiyah well we are all on the level of Malkhut, so we are not going to be looking at the Keter of Asiyah.  We are going to be looking at the Malkhut of the Malkhut.

 

            You understand that this is one of the basic principles, I want you to know that I have been struggling with this, so if you are not getting it right away, do not feel bad about it, this is very complicated and it is just standard procedure for Chayyim Vital to give us the most difficult concepts first, in other words, if you can get past this one, then you can go on, so I am doing everything I can to break this down for you, because it is very complicated.  Now, there is a Kabbalistic principle that says, for us to ascend to a higher place of mind whereby we will have dominion over our life, what is this all about, it is about gaining dominion over our life, you have to get a revelation of how dependent we are.

 

            We would die if we did not have shelter in winter, we would die if we did not have food that comes from outside of us, everything comes from outside of us, everything, every form of comfort comes from outside of us, even the Holy Spirit initially comes from outside of us, that is a position of female weakness, that God wants to change, He wants to put the all provision inside of us, so that we will never be lacking anything, no matter what the conditions are out there, we will have our every need met, because we will have a mature son, a mature Christ Jesus dwelling inside of us, and no man can take that away from you. They would have to kill you to take it away from you, and when Christ Jesus is truly mature in you, they will not be able to kill you.

 

            We will be completely independent of this world even when we are in this world, and that was the condition of Jesus Christ. The reason God wants us in this condition is that we are the rulers of this world. Man, God has made a decision, He has decided that the tangible place where God meet the material world is in the mind of man, not in the mind of the animals, and a man without God is one of the animals of this world.  God is building up mankind for His own purpose because it is an abomination that the species that God has chosen to be the place the meeting place of His Spirit with the material world is subject to the animal and the, well in some case the animal kingdom, if we are put up against a wild animal in a contest, if we do not have a gun the animal would destroy us, the animals are stronger than we are, is that not true?

 

            We are dependent and we are subject to nature, we are subject to the cyclones, to the tornadoes, to the rain, to the cold, to the snow, to the title waves, brethren this is wrong order. We are supposed to be ruling over nature and we are supposed to be ruling over the animal kingdom, and everything is upside down. Therefore, according to the Kabbalistic terminology, we need rectification, we need to be fixed, we need to be restored. Kabbalah teaches that we can be fixed by doing certain good deeds and saying certain prayers, that is what Lurianic Kabbalah is all about.

 

            We are studying Lurianic Kabbalah as a foundation through which the Lord is going to bring whatever correction He chooses to bring to Lurianic Kabbalah and to impart whatever additional information He chooses to impart. The end of the process, what process, acquiring a knowledge of Lurianic Kabbalah, and having the Spirit of revelation,  move through that foundation to correct it where it is wrong and add additional information. That whole body of knowledge that will come forth is called Christ Centered Kabbalah, concerning reincarnation in this particular case.  That is what we are doing.

 

            Lurianic Kabbalah says, and again Lurianic Kabbalah is dealing with the Jew, all Jews according to Lurianic Kabbalah abide either in the Yesod or the Hod of Asiyah, Asiyah which is the visible world, Asiyah which is the Nefesh level of soul, the Malkhut of the 10 general Sefirot. Now I realize that I just made a mistake, so I would like to correct it, Lurianic Kabbalah says that, and again as far as the Jew is concerned, every man is either from the Yesod of Asiyah or the Malkhut of Asiyah, I said earlier, either the Hod or the Yesod. According to Lurianic Kabbalah, every Jew is either carnal from the Malkhut of Asiyah or spiritual from the Yesod of Asiyah, one or the other. Now, our goal is to become a spiritual person, again according to Lurianic Kabbalah, if you are from the Malkhut of Asiyah, and you want to be a spiritual person, you have to ascend to the next level up, which is the Ruach level of soul, and the Ruach level of soul, this gets a little confusing, I am sorry, the next level up, remember there are 5 levels of soul, starting from the bottom up is Nefesh, that is the animal nature, Ruach, that is on the level of Yetzirah, you begin to be spiritual, then is the Neshamah soul which is the higher mind, in other words we would call it the mind of Christ, and then we have the Chayyah level of soul and the Yechida level of soul, which I am not going to get into right now, because it is not a part of this message, but to be complete so that we have dominion over this world, we need to acquire all 5 levels of our soul, and all men are down here are in the Nefesh, the animal nature, so the next step up is to become spiritual.

 

            We are all here in Asiyah, in the world of action, and we want to become spiritual. Now the world of action or Asiyah is broken down into 10 Sefirot, Keter through Malkhut, and it also, these 10 Sefirot are broken down into 5 Partzufim, you may recall, that Nok is the partzuf of Malkhut, ZA or Ze'ir Anpin is the partzuf of the Sefirot Chesed through Yesod, Imma is the partzuf of Binah, Abba is the partzuf of Chokhmah, and Arik Anpin is the partzuf of Keter.  In order for us to acquire dominion over this natural world which is Malkhut of the 10 general Sefirot, we have to rectify the whole world of Asiyah, and these worlds are in us. We have to rectify the whole world of Asiyah to say that the Malkhut of the 10 general Sefirot is rectified, and the Malkhut of the 10 general Sefirot is the physical visible world.

 

            To say that we have rectified the visible physical world, to walk in dominion over nature and over the animal population of the visible material world, we must rectify the aspect of the visible world within us, and that aspect within us is called the partzuf called Asiyah, which is the 10 subjective Sefirot of the world of action in a man, are you following me at all?  How do we go about rectifying, what does rectify mean? It means to fix it, because we are broken, how do you fix the world of Asiyah in you or in me? We fix the world of Asiyah, and this is the Lurianic Kabbalah now, we fix the world of Asiyah by first of all recognizing that it is comprised of 10 Sefirot from Keter to Malkhut, and that these 10 Sefirot are broken down into 5 partzufim, 5 personalities, Malkhut, the woman, ZA, or the daughter ZA, the son or the man, and Imma, mother, Abba, father, and Arik Anpin.  In order to take dominion over our physical world which is first within us and then the world outside of us, we have to fix all five partzufim of the world of Asiyah.  Before we can fix the 5 partzufim of the world of Asiyah, we have to figure out where we are,  and we are told by Lurianic Kabbalah that all mortal men, they are talking about the Jew, the Jew in the world today is, has fallen down to either the Malkhut or the Yesod of Asiyah, and what is the Yesod of Asiyah?

 

            The Yesod of Asiyah is the lowest level of ZA of Asiyah. The Yesod of Asiyah is the lowest level of the level of soul called Ruach.  We see that there are some Jews today who are spiritual, on the lowest level of spirituality, the Yesod of the level of soul called Ruach.  The question is, how do we fix the world in us?  Now for those of us that are rooted in the Malkhut of Asiyah, in order to fix the Malkhut of Asiyah which is the Nefesh level of soul in Asiyah, we have to fix the 10 subjective Sefirot of Malkhut of Asiyah. What does that mean? Malkhut of Asiyah which is the Nefesh level of soul, the partzuf Nok, has her own 10 Sefirot, from Keter through Malkhut, she has her own 10 Sefirot and she has her own 5 partzufim.  We start fixing ourselves according to Lurianic Kabbalah in the 10 subjective Sefirot of the Malkhut or of the Nefesh of Asiyah. We have to start fixing ourselves in the innermost part of our being.

 

            See, what does the doctrine of Christ say? What does Christ Centered Kabbalah say? You have to start looking at your motives, you have to start fixing your personality, you have to start fixing the way you relate to this world. We have to fix our self in our personality and in our attitudes and in our emotions and in the way we live our life, at the innermost part, we have to go very deep. You cannot fix yourself from the outside, because if you fix yourself from the outside, it is a work it is a lie because you change your behavior but you have not changed your heart, and there is really no lasting help for you. We have seen a lot of that here.  That is not Kabbalah, that is doctrine of Christ or Christ Centered Kabbalah, getting back to Lurianic Kabbalah, Lurianic Kabbalah has a formula of behavioral things that you do, prayers that you pray, and good deeds that you do involving the way you cook your foods, the way you dress, doing good deeds for people, how you handle your money, and Lurianic Kabbalah as far as I know the whole Jewish community today believes that you can fix your soul by doing these deeds.

 

            Now, I do not doubt for a second that the Jewish people who are under the law, and have spiritual problems , emotional problems, I do not doubt that they can bring healing to their soul by following the law, the question is how far will that healing go.  If you were a person, let us say you have rebellion in your heart, and because you have rebellion in your heart, your relationship with your parents and your family is hurtful. Should the day come that you decide to submit yourself to the authority of your father and of your parents, of the Rabbinical courts in your Jewish community and stop manifesting that rebellion and start co-operating with everybody, I believe that you will have a measure of healing, that you will feel better about yourself, that your life will get better, I believe that God will bless that. Why? Because we reap what we sow, right?  To say to me that to do these Mitzvot, these good deeds and keep these commandments, that to take that a step further and say that, that kind of correction will also increase you spiritually to the point that you would have the hope of some day obtaining to the dominion over nature and the animal kingdom, that far I cannot take it.

 

            The Scripture that I have for you is that one man could plant and another man can water, but only God can give the increase, and it appears to me and I believe that it is true that who is the creator and the father of us all and who is the author of our salvation, who is the one that is in charge of getting us back to our first estate where we fell down from, that He is not in agreement that keeping the behavioral law is sufficient to restore you to your first estate, He is not in agreement with that.

 

            It seems to me that where the Lurianic Kabbalah is coming from is that we fell because Adam broke the law, so therefore let us keep the law and we will be restored, that seems to me to be the logic, but we know in Christ Centered Kabbalah that the Father God has said, No I am not restoring you to the place that you have fallen from, because if I restore you to the place that you have fallen from, you will be able to fall again. Therefore I must restore you to a higher place from where you will never fall again. Therefore to say that to do or correct the law that you fail to keep in the first place will bring you back to a place of permanent dominion or of dominion over nature and the animal kingdom is not valid, because the Lord does not agree with your program, and the reason He does not agree with your program is that the Lord does not intend to bring you back to the place that we fell from, the Lord intends to bring us back to a higher place and therefore He requires something other than the keeping of the law that was broken.  Aside from all that, the law that was broken was not a behavioral law, the law that was broken was a spiritual law of spiritual disobedience, disobedience of the heart, you cannot rectify disobedience of the heart with obedience of a carnal commandment, or obedience to a carnal commandment.

 

            This is now Christ Centered Kabbalah, so just to make it clear what I have just said, I have just said that Lurianic Kabbalah and the Jewish body of thought today that you can rectify your Nefesh level of soul, you can rectify your soul by keeping carnal commandments, by doing certain behavior, praying certain prayers, dressing in a certain way and cooking your food a certain way, and Christ Centered Kabbalah says, You can indeed be blessed by this behavior because you will reap what you sow, and if in your heart you are really honoring the Lord God as you understand it, you will reap a blessing, but this behavior, the Lord God, the only one who has the ability to raise you back up to your first estate, He is the only one. There is nothing that you can do that will raise you or me back up to a place of dominion over nature and the animal world, God has to raise us back up, God has to decide we qualify for that blessing, and God does not agree with your program, that the keeping of the Mitzvot will restore you to a place of dominion over our world. God does not agree with that. Therefore, you can never accomplish it no matter how hard or for how long, no matter how hard you try or for how long you practice that program.

 

            Praise the Lord.  Does everybody understand that what we have to do, does everybody understand that these levels of Sefirot and partzufim are talking about levels of mind, well actually beyond mind, but levels of our spiritual being, we are talking about mind, we are talking about emotions, we are talking about intellect, and as we say the Malkhut of the Malkhut of the Malkhut we are going deeper and deeper and deeper and we are starting the healing in the deepest possible place that we could reach to that these Sefirot are referring to different levels of our mind and our emotions and our spiritual being, that is what they are talking about.

 

            Let us just for the time being, let us just relate ourselves to the Jew, as I told you at the beginning of this message, many of the Christians today are descendants of the lost 10 tribes, so there are many Christians today that are Israelites, which would naturally fall into this category that either you are rooted in Malkhut or the Yesod of Asiyah, but there also some Christians today who are descendants of the nations, and they could possibly be rooted in a much lower place, why? Because Israel on Mount Sinai was raised up above the nations at that time.

 

            Here we are, we are the Nefesh of Asiyah and we are trying to rectify, this is where we are going to start our rectification, the Malkhut of the Nefesh of Asiyah, according to Lurianic Kabbalah, there is a formula that you follow, I do not know what their explanation is why nobody has attained yet, but there is just a formula that you follow. This is really, the whole point that I want to make here, all 5 partzufim of the Malkhut of the Nefesh, that is wrong.  What I changed was the statement at the upper right hand corner of the board, if you have the tape and the notes, it is already changed but I did say earlier on the tape, all 5 partzufim of the Malkhut of the Nefesh of Asiyah and that was wrong, the statement in the upper right hand corner should read, all 5 partzufim of the Malkhut of Asiyah, that is down here, this 10 subjective Sefirot, the lowest 10 that I have on the board on drawing #2, the 10 Sefirot and the 5 partzufim of the Malkhut of Asiyah, all of these 5 partzufim must be rectified, before we can say that the Malkhut of Asiyah which is the Nefesh level of soul is rectified. Before you can become spiritual, you have to fix the carnal aspect of your nature that is all messed up, that is what we are talking about.

 

            Now, the natural man or the carnal man which is the Malkhut of the Nefesh of Asiyah, this natural man which we are has within him a Malkhut which is the Nefesh level of soul, he has Ze'ir Anpin, which is the spiritual man, and he has Imma which is his higher mind and he has Abba which is the higher wisdom, and then he has Arik Anpin of the Malkhut of Asiyah, and the Lord tells me that for use down here, we are the Malkhut of Asiyah, the Keter of the Malkhut of Asiyah is the transitional point where the next level of soul, look with me at Asiyah, we are the Nefesh level of Asiyah that is the Malkhut and we are hoping to ascend into the level of ZA, or the Ze'ir Anpin of Asiyah which is the Ruach level of soul. Well by the time we get to the partzuf, Arik Anpin of Malkhut of Asiyah, we are moving into the next... By the time we get to the Keter of the Malkhut of Asiyah, we are pushing up into, now remember the Keter of the Malkhut of Asiyah, that is the top highest level of the Nefesh level of soul.  By the time we get to the highest level, the Sefirot, Keter and the partzuf Arik Anpin of the Malkhut of Asiyah, by the time we get to the top, we are already pushing into the next level of soul, which is the Ruach level of soul.  The Lord tells me that the Keter or Arik Anpin of the Malkhut of Asiyah is literally the Ruach level of soul stepping down into the Nefesh level, it is the place of the meeting of the carnal man, the Nefesh level of soul and the spiritual man, it is that transitional stage, is everybody all right with that?

 

            How, you know, how do we rectify ourselves? Kabbalah tells us this is where we are, Kabbalah tells us that we are probably Malkhut of Asiyah, although some men are Yesod of Asiyah, we do not believe in doing the Mitzvot, so this is what the Lord showed me, the Malkhut of the Nefesh of Asiyah, it is Cain the natural man, that is what we are doing, this is the work that we are do here, we are working on the natural man, on our manners, on our communication, on the way we relate to one another, and we are trying to fix everything that is wrong. Well you cannot fix it until you find out that something is wrong. You cannot fix you know your communication if you do not know that you are communicating poorly, and you cannot fix character flaws unless the character flaws are exposed, that is what we do here, it is a large part of this ministry, we are fixing or rectifying the Malkhut of the Nefesh of Asiyah, by dealing with our personal character flaws the way we communicate with other people, and all forms of social behavior.

 

            The next step up would be Ze'ir Anpin of the Malkhut of Asiyah, and those are the Sefirot, Chesed through Yesod, and that is the spiritual man. Did I tell you that the natural man was Cain, I do not know if I said that or not. The natural man of the Malkhut of the Nefesh of Asiyah is Cain in us, and we are trying to civilize him, because sometimes Cain is not very civilized. We have people in this world, or people in this country, I am not talking about people that have never been exposed to civilization, we have people in this country that are very uncivilized, as a matter of fact, this society is spiraling downward and we have a phenomenon in this country today that the young people and sometimes the more mature people are picking up on it, they are very rude and they do not believe in saying thank you or please.  Our society is losing aspects of civilization. We are losing our ability to be civil to one another, and the reason for that is that we are turning our back on the Lord Jesus Christ, that is where this is coming from.

 

            With all of our wealth, with all of our intelligence, with all of our technology, in our mind and in our spirit, of course not those of us who are studying, not those of us who are following the Lord Jesus, but society in general is retrogressing into a level of humanity which is uncivilized. Every rule of civilized society is under attack today, and the people who are attacking civilization and breaking these rules, they do not understand that you cannot break all the rules of civilization and remain civilized, and what is civilized man? Civilized man is a being with an animal nature, which we are, which has been programmed to behave on a level of existence higher than that which we came into the world with, that is what it means to be civilized, that you are taught to behave you are taught a level of behavior that will enhance your life which is not your natural state of being, it is something that has to be taught to you.  If you break down every law of society, you are going back to being an animal, which is what we are before we were civilized.

 

            That is the rectification for Cain. The errors in the way we communicate and relate to other people must be exposed and corrected. Ze'ir Anpin of Malkhut of Asiyah is our spiritual man, that is Abel. Now, as we know Abel in most, well in most Jews, in the world, in the nations, and in most Jews Abel is dead, if he is not dead he is flickering at a very low rate of vibration. There are some Jews where Abel is flickering, but at a very low rate of vibration, even Abel that has some measure of consciousness, needs to be quickened by Christ by the addition of the seed of the glorified Jesus Christ, who cleaves unto Abel and raises him from the dead.

 

            That is the rectification for Abel, he has to have the seed of the glorified Jesus Christ grafted to him and that is his resurrection from the dead. That is the rectification for Abel, Abel is the princess who is called the sleeping beauty, Christ must come and kiss him and raise him from the dead, he is sleeping, waiting to be awakened.

 

            Then after we deal with our spiritual man, those of down here in the Malkhut of the Nefesh of Asiyah, the next thing that we are rectifying is our higher mind, because before Adam fell he had a higher mind, and our higher mind is the mind of Christ. Now, most people do not have the mind of Christ, the mind of Christ has to be added to us.  What is the higher mind what is the mind of Christ? Actually the mind of Christ, how do we say this here, the mind of Christ is Christ Jesus, I am going to have to change this board, when Christ is grafted to us, Christ is grafted to Abel, and then Christ starts to suckle on the energy of the natural man, starts to suck on the spiritual energy of the natural man, which diminishes Satan the unconscious part of our carnal mind, and increases Christ, and Christ as he increases grows into Christ Jesus on the level of Beriah, the Beriah of the Malkhut of Asiyah, and we develop the mind of Christ, the mind of Christ, and that is how we rectify Imma of Malkhut of Asiyah, by acquiring the mind of Christ.  We know that there is no kind of works or religious works that we can do to receive the seed of Christ, which is down here on the level of Ze'ir Anpin.

 

            There are, we can do works on the level of Cain, on the level of rectifying the Malkhut of the Neshamah of Asiyah, we can do works,  we can look at our sins, we can have them exposed, we can work with the person who is exposing our sins, and we can ask God to help us and by the grace of God we can change.  As soon as you get past the level of Malkhut of the Nefesh of Asiyah, only God can give the increase, only God can graft Christ to Abel in you, which is the level of ZA, and only God could assist Christ, give Christ the strength to suckle on your spiritual energy and increase into Christ Jesus which is your higher mind, the mind of Christ, and then the next level up, as God continues to help us and becomes the level of Abba of the Malkhut of the Nefesh of Asiyah, and that level, the level of Abba is the level of wisdom, that is the level of wisdom, that is on the same level of Satan's wisdom.

 

            James talks about that devilish wisdom.  There is a spiritual wisdom of this world, and when we ascend to the level when we rectify the level of Abba of the Malkhut of the Nefesh of Asiyah, we acquire the wisdom of, actually it is the wisdom of Christ. See there are different levels in Christ, and here we have the seed of Christ on the level of ZA, the higher mind, we have the mind of Christ and then that is on the level of Imma, on the level of Abba, we have the wisdom of Christ. Does that sound very strange to you, the mind of Christ and the wisdom of Christ? You know the Lord spoke to me recently about the Scripture that says we are cleansed by the washing with the water of the word, and the Lord taught, and that has been an issue in my mind for a while, because I was in an old order deliverance church for five years, and we were really criticized very severely by other churches who would tell us, you do not have to cast out demons because we are washed with the water of the word.  I knew that when the Lord sent me to that church that I was in great need of deliverance, and I was not getting those demons cast out of me by reading the word or hearing it preached, I did not know what the answer was, I just knew that they were wrong.

 

            Today the Lord tells me, and how are they wrong, that I was not getting delivered by hearing the word preached, that was being preached in the church, and that is still being preached in the church today. Jesus died on the cross, He was resurrected and you are saved, and all the curses were broken on the cross, it was not doing it for me.

 

            Today the Lord has explained it to me, He says, the word that will cleanse you of your sins, the word that will cleanse you of your demons is the wisdom of the word, the water of the word is the wisdom of the word. What is the wisdom of the word? The wisdom of the word is the level, is understanding of the word on the level of the mysteries, because we know we have the surface of the word, we have the parable level, we have the sermonic level of the word where you can use the word to preach a moral principle, then there is another level called hints where the word gives you hints to deeper spiritual understanding, and the depth or the deepest level of understanding the word is the mysteries, and that is what we teach here, the mysteries.  If you are subjecting your mind and your person to a study of the mysteries of the word of God, you can be cleansed of demons and have curses broken and experience everything that we experienced in that deliverance church by submitting yourself to a course of study such as this, which is the wisdom of the word. The wisdom of the word will wash you.  The surface of the word, the letter of the word will not wash you.

 

            Old order deliverance is a mercy of God, if you are not in a place where you can even comprehend or even bear the spiritual fire that comes down when you study the wisdom of the word, there is an alternative for you if you have a spiritual problem, and that is the casting out of the evil spirits by what we call old order deliverance, by a couple of believers sitting around you and saying, I rebuke you, come out in the name of Jesus, come out, that is the mercy of God on that level of spiritual development which is almost no spiritual development at all.  Once you ascend to a place where you can tolerate what we do here, you can tolerate sitting under the fire that comes down when these mysteries are preached, you will be washed by the spiritual water. Well Pastor Vitale, I thought you just said the fire comes down? Yes, fire and water come down, fire is Binah, she is the one that is burning you, she is the one that brings judgment, and the water is Chokhmah who is within Binah, Binah is never alone, Chokhmah is always with her, and he is the wisdom and the water, they come down together.

 

            Spiritual fire does not cancel out spiritual water like it does here in this world.  This is the rectification for man as Christ Centered Kabbalah teaches it. Get your Cain straightened out, submit to that correction no matter how much your pride hurts you, ask the Lord to have Christ grafted to your Abel which rectifies Abel and raises him from the dead, then work with the Lord and with your teacher to continue to learn and to submit to the correction of your soul so that Christ can boil Satan, what causes Satan to boil? The exposure of your sins. Christ will boil Satan in you and then, if you receive the truth of the sin that is exposed, Christ will acquire that energy and increase into the mind of Christ for you, the higher mind. Then as you continue to pursue the mysteries and continuously look inside of your heart and start to control and deal with Satan who is, whose whole function, whose whole purpose is to literally conceive and bring forth into your mind evil thoughts or thoughts that when you embrace them and do them will bring destruction into your life, as you continue to resist her based upon what you are being taught, you acquire the wisdom of God, why? Because when God sees you using all your strength to oppose the evil mind of Satan, which is the unconscious part of your carnal mind, the evil side, the carnal mind is good and evil. Satan is the evil side of your carnal mind, when God sees you truly sincerely wanting to defeat her, trust me, He will give you the wisdom that you need to defeat her, and that is how you acquire wisdom.

 

            See, God is giving you wisdom to defeat the enemies of your soul, and then as you grow, in this area, as you are fighting with Satan everyday and as you are reigning over her, then He continues to give you wisdom as to how to improve your life, but to get this higher wisdom, it is initially given to you to overcome the enemy of your soul. 

 

            You cannot expect to get this higher wisdom as to how to make money, as to how to improve your life, if you are not first using it to correct the errors in your soul.  Then finally, we rectify the highest level which is the Keter or Arik Anpin of the Malkhut of Asiyah, and I do not know how we do that, the Lord tells me, I was not sure what that was, and the Lord tells me that, to rectify the Keter of Arik Anpin of the Malkhut of Asiyah, what it means to us, let me back up a little on that, I am not sure how the Kabbalists look at this, but I know from our point of view, we cannot rectify what we do not have, so the rectification of the Malkhut of the, the rectification of the Malkhut of Asiyah, is to fix what is here, which is Cain, and Abel, and then after you fix Cain and Abel, you have to acquire what is not there, because we are absent, our brains, we are absent our brains, that is the bottom line.

 

            We have Cain and Abel that has to be fixed, and then to rectify Imma, Abba, and Arik Anpin, those are our brains, we are lacking our brains.  You cannot fix them, you have to acquire them.  To acquire the highest level which is the Keter of the Malkhut of Asiyah or the Partzuf is the Arik Anpin of the Malkhut of Asiyah. First of all, let us say what that level is, this is what the Lord told me because I did not know what to put down, He said this highest level is the Ruach level of soul mixing with the Nefesh level of soul. Now let me telly you another way, we are the Nefesh level of soul, we are rectifying the Nefesh level of soul in the hope of ascending into the Ruach level of soul which is the spiritual lifestyle.

 

            When you get to the highest level of the carnal lifestyle which is Nefesh, you start mixing with that which is above.  This Keter or Arik Anpin of Malkhut, that is a high level of spirituality where your carnality is already mixing with the Ruach level which is spiritual, and it is a higher level of wisdom, because God is wisdom. Well, this is like the third time I am trying to preach this, I really think this is the best job that I have done so far, have I helped you at all? It is just a very difficult aspect but when we get past it, you know, we have to, and it is very technical you know, but I have read all the way through chapter 4, of this Gate of Reincarnations and we have got some really interesting stuff ahead, we just have to get past this.  I am going to stop so we can go out to dinner, we do have some more of this, but I think it will be easier from here on in, and if the Lord lets us, we will see if we can get through all of this technical stuff tonight, and then maybe next week, we will start getting into some of the fun stuff, you know.  Are there any questions or comments here?

 

            The Lord gave me some additional information for the Keter which is the Arik Anpin of the Malkhut of Asiyah, I had just told you that, it is the place where the Ruach level of soul mixes with the Nefesh level of soul, and the Lord tells me that the name of that level is the king of the Nefesh of Asiyah. Remember we are all called to be kings and priests, we are a king over our own person, we are supposed to be a king over our own land, our physical body, and our soul is our land.  When we ascend to the level of the Keter of any level, the Keter of any level is king, Keter means crowned King, so whatever level you are working on, when you ascend to the Keter of that level, it means you have now attained to a place where you are ruling over every aspect of your being, your spirit, your soul, and your body in that level.  It is the place where the highest level that you are working at begins to mix with the level above, but the name of the level is king, which I did not have before.  We have a question here.

 

            COMMENT: I was wondering, you have shown us Christ Centered Kabbalah, with all of these on the lower start with the Keter, all the way over, what would they have for their meaning, we have it like for Christ Centered and mind of Christ, what would they be called?

 

            PASTOR VITALE:  I think the question is concerning what I just taught you that the rectification of the Malkhut is social skills which is Cain, is teaching Cain social skills, the rectification of ZA is the grafting of Christ to Abel, which is the awakening of the sleeping beauty, the princess that is sleeping, because Abel even though he is in the male role in relationship to Cain, Abel is mortal and therefore female, the higher mind is the mind of Christ, the wisdom is the Spirit of Christ, and the next level is king, and the question is, maybe I misunderstood you, your question is what names do Kabbalah call these, or how do they rectify these sections?  Kabbalah rectifies these levels by deeds, they have a whole scenario written out in order to rectify Cain, you have to say this prayer and you have to do this and you have to do that, and then they say Cain is corrected.

 

            What I do not understand, unless the Lord is going to answer me like He did on Thursday night, what I do not understand is, do the Kabbalists not understand that it is not happening? I do not understand how they do not understand that it is not happening.  These are not stupid people, these are intelligent people, so they must have some kind of answer that I do not know what the answer is.  As I told you earlier, I have no problem believing when it comes to rectifying the level of Malkhut which is Cain, that if a person has certain behavioral or emotional problems, that they could be rectified by submitting to the discipline of the law, because unless you have something higher which is what we have, we have a better covenant,  we have a spiritual covenant, we are not under the law of ordinances, but if that is all you know, if you do not believe in Jesus Christ, submitting yourself to a discipline is a very healthy thing, submitting yourself to a community and the hierarchy of authority in the community and it causes you to humble yourself, and we just get blessed from humbling ourselves, and doing that.

 

            I have no problem believing that people who, I think it is usually men, I do not think the women do this, who submit to this program that they see improvement in their personality and in their life, but surely they must understand that they are not going anywhere, you know, even if they get a little spiritual, let us say these men who submit themselves to this become spiritual, I do not know, something must be happening to them, I got the answer. I got the answer and I told you this off the tape, I will put it on the tape, the answer is that the man who submits to this course of discipline, they really do start to become more and more and more spiritual, and they really are ascending, but they are not ascending in Christ Jesus, they are ascending in the Serpent's timeline, they are completely deceived because they see all the spiritual growth, you know.  As I told you off the tape, if you study Hinduism which I do not recommend to anybody, but if you look at a Hindu book, you will see that all the levels of spiritual heights that we talk about in Christ Jesus, they talk about it too.

 

            They talk about it in the Serpent, and the Hindus make no bones about it, that they worship the Serpent, they say that you can ascend out of the body, you can ascend into a glorified consciousness out of the body, and they have names for every level of ascension, and that is what is happening to these Kabbalists.

 

             Wow, if a Kabbalist hears this tape he would probably be in a total rage at what I am saying, but this is what the Lord just told me, do not shut off the tape, your life could be on the line. You are ascending and you are ascending without the authority of God, you are ascending in the authority of the natural man, and you are deceived, and as I was telling the brethren here off the tape this morning, years ago, the Lord gave me an alternate translation of a Scripture and I cannot find it, I cannot, I looked for it in the alternate translation, I think either it was a proverb or something that Jesus Christ said to the people and I think it was a proverb, and it said, do not seek out the knowledge, do not seek out the wisdom of the Serpent, because if you seek out the wisdom of the Serpent you will fall into a big pit, and I do not remember the rest of it, but the indication was, you will not come out.  What I told everybody earlier was based on part 11 of Pregnancy, Suckling, and Childhood which we preached last week, the Lord showed me, bear with me as I try and make this simple to you, that to pursue wisdom before we receive the Mochin of the glorified Jesus Christ, leaves us with an empty space because the Mochin of the glorified Jesus Christ fills in our empty space.

 

            We each have an individual empty space, we are lacking our brains, and we have to receive the Mochin, the brains of the glorified Jesus Christ, then when we pursue wisdom, the pursuit of wisdom is in the form of journeying towards our center, because we, fallen man represents the circular Sefirot, or the circular aspect of the Sefirot.  The pursuit of wisdom and spiritual ascension takes the form of migrating from the outermost circles of our spiritual being towards our center where hopefully we will connect with the linear aspect of the Sefirot which is the glorified Jesus Christ who in that connection will catch us up to a higher level, but if we journey inward, to our center, and we are not filled with the brains or the Mochin of the glorified Jesus Christ, when we get to that center, instead of being drawn upward, we will fall downward, into the lowest realms of this existence which is separated from God.  How does that affect us? It affects us, the only answer in my mind is that this is the condition of people in mental institutions that appear to be mindless beings. Somehow they have had a spiritual ascension, they may not have pursued it, it may, you know we are born with all kinds of situations, something happened in their life that caused the spiritual ascension, and they arrived at their center and the linear Sefirot of the glorified Jesus Christ was not there, and they fell down into that hole, and their bodies still exist, but their mind is far away, and because their mind is so far away, the existence of their physical body is a torment. Sometimes they are medicated into almost an unconsciousness or they are certainly not leading a productive life if you are in a mental institution, because your mind has gone into the higher realms of the Serpent's timeline, you fell into the pit instead of ascending when you got to that linear aspect, you went down instead of going up, your mind went down instead of going up, and that is what is happening to these Jewish people, they are truly ascending, but they do not know that when they get to the center, they are not going to go up, they are going to fall.

 

            Something comes to my mind right now, as you all know I have a relationship with a Rabbi, and he has said to me recently, he said something to the effect of the power is being restored, and you know what that says to me?

 

            The Lord is never late, and I have been telling you here for years that the Lord is going first, He is going to the people who are very spiritually endowed or very spiritually active and He is bringing this message to those people, because people are very spiritually endowed, this is the time of love, this.  The whole creation is maturing, we are not just maturing individually, human history, the history of the whole creation is maturing, and the time is coming for this living soul that died to get married, and the question is, will she marry the glorified Jesus Christ or will she marry the Serpent, and the Lord is going out today looking for spiritually ascended people to bring them into a knowledge of the truth because if they do not come to a knowledge of the truth, the Serpent's going to grab them and marry them, and this company of Kabbalists who believe that the power is being restored because they are having these experiences today, do not understand that they are truly headed for their center, but when they get there, they are going to go down, they are not going to go up.

 

            It really is time for this message to go to the Jews that are on this level, I am not talking about the secular Jews, but the Jews who are Kabbalists who are in danger of being captured by the Serpent. The Lord is raising up this message to save their lives. You know, when God calls you, everything you do is for somebody else. As much as we enjoy sitting here and hearing these marvelous revelations and even as much as it is helping us in our personal lives, the Lord called us and assigned us, assigned you to this ministry to save probably thousands of Jewish lives that are about to be destroyed by falling down into the pit, and the Lord is bringing forth this message just in time, can you hear that?

 

            What an incredible revelation! We just pray for them all right now, that this word should go to them, that the bondage on their mind that will not hear the truth should be removed, that the veil over their mind should be removed, because of the mercy of the Lord that they should hear the truth and come to a knowledge of the truth and stop their journey until they are filled with the Mochin of the glorified Jesus Christ. Another Scripture that comes to my mind is the account in the book of Genesis of the beings that whatever they were, I guess they were some form man, but they were not homo sapien, that existed at the time of the Tower of Babel, the Scripture in the King James, it clearly says, "And they journeyed."  I remember that word, and they journeyed, are you familiar with that?  "And they journeyed," and I wondered about that, what do you mean they journeyed? They were journeying towards their center, and the tower of Babel that they were building, or that they were trying to build was the linear Sefirot, and what they did not understand was that the linear Sefirot that they were building because their world was turned upside down, they were really building it downward and not upward, and they would have completely destroyed themselves and that is why the Lord separated them the way He did.

 

            Did I make that clear, did you hear that? I want to look for that Scripture that they were journeying. Genesis 11:1, "And the whole earth was of one language and of one speech, and it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east..", the east is where God is, so they journeyed from the east, they journeyed away from God, "And they found a plane in the land of Shinar, and they dwelt there. And they said one to another..."... this is the journeying towards the center, but it is not in God's path, it is in the Serpent's path. "And they said one to another, go to let us make brick and burn them thoroughly and they brick for stone and slime they had for mortar and they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, let us build a circular aspect of the Sefirot and the linear aspect of the Sefirot, and let us build a tower whose top may reach unto heaven. That is the linear Sefirot coming down and meeting the people who have returned to their center, let us do it ourselves, let us do it in our own power, and let us make a name lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.  They had a revelation that the linear, that their connection to the linear Sefirot of God was disconnected, so they wanted to make their own linear Sefirot, lest they should be scattered. What does that mean to be scattered on the face of the earth? Lest they lose all power, these were giants, spiritual giants, they knew exactly what had happened to them, and they were trying to reverse the judgment of God without repentance.

 

            "And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower... ", that is what the Kabbalists call the other side, the Sefirot of the other side, they were doing their own thing.  "Which the children of men had built. And the Lord said, Behold the people is one and they have all one language...", so this typifies some kind of very, this says to me that the creation was still one man, it was not yet divided, you know, and they were very powerful, and this they begin to do and now nothing will be restrained from them which they have imagined to do. In other words, I always wondered about that, they will succeed, but they will succeed on the other side. They are going to succeed, but it is impossible for them to succeed on the side of God without God, so they will succeed, but in a negative way that will destroy them. "Go to, let us go down and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.  The Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth, and they left off to build the city."

 

            Remember we said earlier, they said, Let us build this tower so that we are not scattered over the face of the earth, and then the Lord God came down and scattered them across the face of the earth.  They were trying to pervert the judgment of God, by building a linear aspect of the Sefirot apart from God, which is the other side, and the Lord put a stop to it, because that would have meant they would have been spiritual giants in evil, so the Lord put a stop to it and their fear came to pass, the Lord scattered them across the face of the earth, and that is the condition that we are in now. Is that not interesting? I love it, just love it.  We will see you after dinner, bye.

 

            Praise the Lord we are back from dinner, we are still looking at drawing #2, so I hope we all understand that each of us has to rectify the whole of the Nefesh of Asiyah in order to say that we have rectified the Nefesh or the Malkhut of Asiyah. Do you all understand this? This is very confusing. Down here, these 10 subjective Sefirot which are the Malkhut of the Nefesh of Asiyah.  We have to rectify all 5 partzufim as I explained this morning, we have to teach Cain social skills, we have to graft Christ to Abel, we have to acquire the mind of Christ in the Spirit of Christ and then we ascend to the level of king of the Nefesh of Asiyah, and after we do all that, what we have done is rectify the Malkhut or the Nefesh of Asiyah. Is that understood?  Then after we rectify the Malkhut of the Nefesh of Asiyah, I better make this another drawing because I really want to get this through to you, let us do another drawing here, please.

 

            We are looking at drawing #3, and we see that the Malkhut, the name of the partzuf of Malkhut is Nok, the Malkhut or the Nok of Asiyah has now been rectified and what does that mean? Everything that we just talked about concerning drawing #2, has resulted in Abel being restored to a position of dominion above Cain.

 

            If we want to talk about the rectification of the Malkhut of Asiyah in simple terms, we will say that is the restoration of Abel, the manhood of our mortality being restored above Cain, the female of our mortality, Malkhut being rectified means that Abel is out from under the ground and is now on top of Cain.  Everything that we talked about on drawing #2, about Christ being grafted, the acquisition of the mind of Christ and wisdom and the kingdom, all of these things imply or speak about power imparted to the individual for the purpose of digging Abel up out from under the ground and restoring him back on top of Cain.

 

            The whole purpose of the imputation of the mind of Christ and of wisdom and of the very grafting of the Christ and of the power of the kingdom is given to the man whose spiritual existence is in the Malkhut of the Nefesh of Asiyah, all of these things are given to him for one purpose, to wake up Abel, and to restore Abel to his dominion over Cain, and when all of that is accomplished, we look at it in drawing #3, and we see the Malkhut of Asiyah is now rectified, Abel is once again above Cain, and they are in the right moral order, and the 2 of them, even though Abel is male to Cain, the 2 of them together, Abel and Cain are still the elements of the Malkhut or the Nok, which is female, Malkhut is female, no matter what form she is in, she is female.  Abel is the male aspect of the female elements, because everything in creation is male and female, the question is, in each element that we are looking at, is the male predominant, or is the female predominant.

 

            In Malkhut, Malkhut is a female aspect, but the male element is always supposed to be on the top of the female element, is everybody all right? I know this is a confusing message.  We have now rectified the Malkhut of Asiyah, and Asiyah is the name of the, a partzuf which encompasses the ten subjective Sefirot of the Malkhut of the ten general Sefirot.  The next thing, the next aspect of our spiritual growth is to rectify Ze'ir Anpin, or ZA or the Ruach of Asiyah. What are we trying to accomplish? This is just a review, what are we trying to accomplish here? We are trying to rectify all aspects of Asiyah so that we can say the Malkhut of the 10 general Sefirot is rectified, and when we can say that the Malkhut of the 10 general Sefirot is rectified, then we go on to ascend into Ze'ir Anpin of Atzilut which is a high level of spirituality, which is out of the body, which is beyond the body, that is where Jesus is right now, beyond the body, beyond the physical body anyway.  I believe that Ze'ir Anpin of the 10 general Sefirot has a spiritual body, and Jesus has ascended even higher than that. We are His body today.

 

            I am not really sure where He is, I know we had a couple of messages on it, He is probably in Abba somewhere, but I am not sure, He may even be higher than that, I should not talk because I am not sure.  On the 10 general Sefirot, Malkhut is the spiritual man in the flesh, the rectified spiritual man in the flesh, like Jesus was in the days of His flesh.  Ze'ir Anpin of the 10 general Sefirot which is the level of Ruach is Jesus in the spiritual body that appeared after His resurrection. Now Jesus is higher than that, He is either somewhere in Imma or in Abba, He does not have any form at all, we are His form, He has no form, He is pure spirit right now.  Back to Asiyah here, does everybody understand what we are trying to accomplish here?  Now the next stage of rectification is the Ruach which is Ze'ir Anpin of Asiyah, and those are the Sefirot Chesed through Yesod of Asiyah, what happens when we start to work on the rectification,  once our soul, once Malkhut of our soul, well I am sorry, once Malkhut of Asiyah is rectified, that means we have increased, we have grown spiritually and the next thing we go to work on is the Ruach level of soul of Asiyah.

 

            We are not doing anything with Malkhut that is rectified, we are up here where Christ is, Ze'ir Anpin of Asiyah is Christ and that is spiritual manhood, see. Down here on drawing #2, where we were in the Malkhut of the Nefesh of Asiyah, we had a Ze'ir Anpin, but he was imputed, the Ze'ir Anpin was imputed, Imma was imputed, Abba was imputed, and the kingdom was imputed. That was given to us, that was strength that was given to us for the purpose of digging Abel up and restoring him. Now, as we work to rectify the Ruach of Asiyah, we are working to restore...(End of Tape 1)         

 

           

 

Tape 2

 

                        We are working on building Christ, the male or our manhood while we are still in this physical flesh, our spiritual manhood, and we are working on the Ruach of Asiyah, we are working on building Christ who at some point is going to mature into Christ Jesus because every stage that we have here has many grades in between.  The Ruach, Ze'ir Anpin of Asiyah is the building of Christ, the Christ that grafted to Abel is ascending to a level of spiritual manhood in the flesh. This is no longer imputed, it is no longer given to us, it is earned, and as Christ appears in the Ruach level of soul, He has earned it, and how does Christ who is grafted to Abel earn this level of spiritual manhood, does anybody know? All through history, all through history of humanity great warriors earned their bones you may say, in some kind of warfare. What kind of warfare is Christ engaged in that will result in His ascending to spiritual manhood in the physical flesh.

 

            COMMENT: I think it is the war against our own carnal mind.

 

            PASTOR VITALE: What is it called, use the terminology that we are talking about right now, you are right, but what is the terminology that we are talking about? Specifically how does Christ increase into spiritual manhood? What is He eating that is going to get Him up there?

 

            COMMENT: He is suckling on Satan, the unconscious part of the mind.

 

            PASTOR VITALE: He is suckling on Satan which is the energy of the natural man, amen.  As Chist who is grafted to Abel increases to the point that He ascends into a level of spiritual manhood in the flesh, Satan is simultaneously weakened, because we are talking about the energy, the measure of energy that the natural man has and there is only one measure of energy.  Up until the point that Christ has grafted that energy was under the total control of Satan, the unconscious part of the carnal mind, a mortal man, now that Christ is here, every iota, or I do not know how to measure it, every drop of spiritual energy that Christ acquires that He increases by, Satan is lacking and therefore diminishing.

 

            We see that on the level of Asiyah of the Ruach of Asiyah we also have an imputed mind of Christ, an imputed wisdom which is Abba, and an imputed level of kingdom, and what does that mean, it is imputed? Well, you know the body of Christ, the people in the church, they have some level of the mind of Christ, what is the mind of Christ? It is not functioning very much, let me put it this way, it is available to them in an emergency as the individual cries out to Jesus to help in a crisis, the imputed mind of Christ, the imputed wisdom of God or the imputed kingdom grade, is available to believers who have rectified their Malkhut and are ascending into spiritual manhood in the flesh, but it is not there, they do not own it, they are not wise in God, do you understand what I am saying?

 

            It is available to be poured out on them in a crisis if they pray. What is the mind of Christ? The mind of Christ is the ability to reason as Christ reasons and we do a lot of work like that, we have been doing a lot of work on that for several years here now, and I had to show you how the reasoning of the carnal mind of the brethren here is frequently the exact opposite of the way that Christ reasons, you cannot possibly come to the right conclusion if you are reasoning by a faulty formula.

 

            That mind of Christ in this case, where we are working on the rectification of our Ruach means that we could be coming forth in the spiritual power of Christ in our warfare against Satan, in our warfare against our own carnal mind, but we could still be dealing with problems by the reasoning of the carnal mind, because the mind of Christ is only there in case of emergency, we are not really functioning on that level yet, but we are getting strong in Christ Jesus, we are getting powerful without necessarily the wisdom to go with the power, just like children grow strong physically before they acquire maturity, this is what is happening to us as we rectify the Ruach of Asiyah.  Once again the Kabbalists rectify the Ruach of Asiyah by a certain set ritual of prayer and behavior. Everybody all right?

 

            COMMENT: I was wondering being that Abel has overcome Cain and has come up is rectified and is in the right moral order, is the individual, have they gained more strength because of that happening?

 

            PASTOR VITALE: Yes, we gain strength from every victory that we take over any member of the household of the other side which is ruled by Satan, the unconscious part of the mind, and Leviathan.  Every victory is an increase in strength, and Abel now covering over Cain is a step towards righteousness. It is impossible to be righteous when Cain is ruling our vessel, so now that Abel is ruling over Cain, we are moving towards righteousness and there is power in righteousness, there is incredible power in righteousness, I hope you know that. There is incredible power in being right as God sees it, you know, tremendous strength in that.  The answer to your question is yes.

 

            Let me just read what I have here for you, the Ruach of Malkhut which is the ZA, the Ruach of Malkhut of Asiyah which is ZA of Malkhut of Asiyah, these are the conditions, Abel is restored to his position above Cain, in other words the Nok is Restored, and the Christ that is grafted to the Abel of the Nok, Christ remains attached to Abel but also ascends by an aspect of Himself from where he continues to suckle on Satan the energy of the natural man, and we see that the rectification of the Ruach of Asiyah is the impartation, the earned manhood of the individual, it is not a gift, it is the earned manhood of the individuals.  Let me write on this board please. Drawing #4, I have shown you the rectification of Imma which is the imparted mind of Christ, and that imparted mind of Christ means that the ability to reason as Christ reasons is now yours, you own it, that means if you come to your natural state when presented with a problem to solve, you reason with the mind of Christ, and your carnal reasoning is put away, and that would be the rectification of the Imma level of Asiyah, the rectification of the Abba level of Asiyah, and well I did not tell you this, the mind of Christ is the first level of your Mochin, your Mochin, your brains are imparted to you in 3 stages, and let me remind you that the Mochin, having your brains are absolutely essential for us to make contact with the glorified Jesus Christ.

 

            In Christ Jesus, Christ in Christ Jesus is developing in us on the circle of the earth, they are a part of our earthen man, but to enter into permanent immortality, we must, the Christ in us must reconnect with the glorified Jesus Christ, who is no longer on the circle of the earth, He is above, He is in the highest heaven, or above the highest heaven, I am not sure where He is right now, either He is the highest heaven, or above the highest heaven, and in order to do that, that part of us which the glorified Jesus Christ connects with is the Mochin of Ze'ir Anpin within us. 

 

            We can have Christ, we can have Christ Jesus,  but if we have not received the 3 levels of the Mochin, we will not be able to make a complete re-connection with the glorified Jesus Christ. Is that understood?  We see that to acquire the mind of Christ the way Christ reasons is the third level of the Mochin, that descends into us. The Abba level of Asiyah which is the wisdom of God, that is the second level of Mochin that ascends into us, and what is wisdom? Wisdom is the ability to know things without having studied, it is to have to understand how to solve problems.  The mind of Christ will solve a problem by thinking it through and reasoning out with the mind of Christ. The wisdom of God, or the wisdom of the glorified Jesus Christ just knows the answer, you do not have to sit down, you do not have to figure it out, you do not have to learn it from a book, nobody has to teach it to you, if you have wisdom in a particular area, you just know.

 

            This is so exciting brethren.  The example in our modern day folklore you might say, is what we saw in the Matrix where Trinity needed to know in 2 minutes she needed to know how to fly a helicopter, and in the story of the Matrix, she calls in and the operator just gives her a program which teaches her how to run the helicopter, that is what wisdom would be. If in a crisis we needed knowledge immediately, if we existed on that level, if that level of Asiyah was rectified in us, we would have the wisdom that applies to this world and that I have a promise from that level, I have a promise that I will speak Spanish without having gone to school, that I will ascend to a particular level that I will be fluent in Spanish, that means when I ascend to the level or when I, I do not know whether I have to ascend to the level or completely own that level of wisdom of Asiyah, I expect that promise to be fulfilled in my life, and maybe other languages too. That is what wisdom is, when you have ability and knowledge without studying.

 

            If necessary, you could know how to do brain surgery. Is that not exciting? Is that the most exciting thing you have ever heard of? Praise the Lord.

 

            The question I just heard a question in my mind, well if you are going to be in such a high place, why would you want to have to do brain surgery? Because we are being sent to minister to the peoples of the world, and yes we will have supernatural healing power, I do not understand all things, but I know that sometimes God gives you a supernatural healing and sometimes He gives you a healing through surgery. Maybe we will have to know how to do brain surgery, maybe there will be someone on the operating room table and we will be there to assist the doctor, with a new technique or a new procedure, maybe that particular person that Lord Jesus wants to bless and to save from this affliction, maybe that person does not have the faith to believe for a supernatural healing, so the Lord will give them their healing through a doctor. And the highest level, the Keter which is Arik Anpin of Asiyah, is called kingdom or dominion and that means that when you own that level when it is not a gift, when you ascend into that level of the kingdom of Asiyah, it means you will completely rule in this flesh world, and of course that is where Jesus was in the days of His flesh, He completely ruled over every aspect of His own being, and He completely ruled over nature, and over the animal kingdom and over the minds of men, completely ruled without any shadow of turning.

 

            That is the level of Messiah, the Keter of Asiyah of the 10 general Sefirot, that is the level of Messiah, and Kabbalists will tell you that, that is the level that Messiah will be at, and from that place he will have the strength to raise other men up to higher levels.  We believe that there will be a company of sons of God that will be manifesting the nature of Christ Jesus and the strength of Christ Jesus at that level of Keter of Asiyah, that is so exciting! I have always believed the promises of the sons of God, but I find it so much easier to believe with this depth of understanding, because I have never been a person to believe in a fantasy, you know the more you show it to me in detail, the more I can comprehend it.  I am just flying with the messages that have been coming down here, and at that bottom of the board I show you the 3 highest levels of Asiyah, Yechida which is Arik, Chayyah which is Abba, the Neshamah which is Imma. Those are the 3 higher levels of soul and we see that Abel, that when the whole of Asiyah is rectified, Abel is restored to his position above Cain, that means that is the restoration of the Nok, the female, Christ remains attached to Abel, but also ascends by an aspect of Himself from where He continues to suckle on Satan, the energy of the natural man, and that is the ascension of the individual into spiritual manhood, and then we see the mind of Christ, the 3rd level, wisdom the 2nd level and kingdom the 1st level of the Mochin, completes the individual in the nature wisdom and strength of the glorified Jesus Christ, and we are totally undefeatable in this physical body.

 

            Praise the Lord, is everybody All right with this? Drawing #5, I am trying to show you that Malkhut which is the Nefesh level of soul, the Malkhut of the 10 general Sefirot is the Nefesh level of soul and it consists of a partzuf called Asiyah, which is the 10 subjective Sefirot under Malkhut, and all of Asiyah must be rectified before we can even begin to work on the rectification of the Ruach level of soul of the 10 general Sefirot. Now if you will see, if you will look at the section where I have marked off the Malkhut, I will show you that some people are rooted in Yesod of Malkhut, they are the spiritual people of this world, not necessarily spiritual in Christ, and some people are rooted in the Malkhut of the Malkhut. Now the people who are rooted in the Yesod of Asiyah, they must rectify all of Asiyah including the Malkhut which is a level lower than the level that they are rooted in, did I make that clear?

 

            Wherever you are rooted even if it is possible to be incarnated in this world, and let us say you are rooted in Gevurah, you still have to rectify all of the levels of Asiyah or levels of Malkhut underneath it, you have to, the way it is expressed in Kabbalah is that you have to rectify the whole strata Asiyah.  This is the physical person that we are, and why is that? Because the next level of ascension when we come up here and we start to rectify the Yesod of the 10 general Sefirot, we are beginning to build our spiritual body. The Ruach level of soul is the world of Yetzirah, and the world of Yetzirah is greater than all of Asiyah. Now greater does not necessarily mean that it is bigger, but it is of a higher spiritual stature, and the man who is rooted in the Ruach level of soul which is the world of Yetzirah as opposed to the world of Malkhut, this man no longer has a physical body, this man has a spiritual body or an etheric body and that is the condition that Jesus was in after the resurrection when he walked on the earth, He walked in a spiritual body.

 

            Today He is ascended beyond the spiritual body.  That is a very big jump to go from any level of Asiyah while you are in the physical body, to jump to a spiritual body, even if you are at the highest level of Asiyah, you are still in a physical body, so it is a big jump from the highest level of Asiyah into the level of Ruach, the Ruach level of soul is a big jump, because you are jumping from a physical body to the spiritual body, even if you jump from the highest level of the physical body, to the lowest level of the spiritual body, it is still a tremendous jump. Everybody all right?  Now I will make this last statement, although I really do not want to elaborate on it, but after we attain to the Ruach level of soul, which is going to be, I believe it is going to be a long time away, I believe we are going to, the sons of God have a couple of thousand years in the flesh that they will be spending rectifying the whole world in Malkhut, but at the time that we ascend that we are fully ascended in to the Ruach level of soul and we are ready to ascend up to Binah of the 10 general Sefirot which is the level of Beriah, in order to, and I do not even know how that, I do not know how to describe that level to you, but it has to be a very high level, when we start working on our ascension into Binah, the Ruach level of soul has to be completely rectified.

 

            In other words, it has to be opened just like we opened up Malkhut, and we have to rectify the subjective Sefirot within I would imagine each of the 6 Sefirot of Ruach, Chesed, Gevurot, Sefirah, Netzach, Hod, and Yesod.  I do not want to get into that too deeply because it is confusing. Are there any questions on this board so far?  I have to clarify something that I really did not make clear earlier on this tape, when we talk about rectifying all of the, due to technical difficulties we have lost about one minute of this message, the message will pick up as soon as the silence ends. Malkhut is rectified and ZA is rectified, in the case of Malkhut of Asiyah all aspects have to be rectified, but when you start rectifying the ZA of Asiyah, and Imma of Asiyah, each of those partzuf have 10 subjective Sefirot within them, and you only have to rectify the Malkhut, you only have to rectify the Malkhut of ZA, you only have to rectify the Malkhut of Imma, the Malkhut of Abba, and the Malkhut of Arik, you do not have to rectify all the Sefirot within.

 

            We are going to stop for tonight, but I expect to pick up on this same tape on the Thursday, God bless you. Praise the Lord, we are back again and this is another meeting, which is beginning on the tape of the previous meeting, I would just like to remind you that actually we are in our notes, we are up to chapter 1, section 4 b, which is a review, and the reason there is a review at this point is that the previous section of chapter 1 was difficult and difficult enough so that the writer Rabbi Chayyim Vital, well I am sorry this is not Chayyim Vital, the person who instituted a review at this point is the translator, because the previous section was so difficult.  What we did on the early part of this tape of the previous part of this message, is that we have gone back into section 4 of chapter 1, which presents 5 points, yes that section 4 of chapter 1 presents 5 different points or 5 different aspects of this teaching of reincarnation according to Lurianic Kabbalah, and one how can I put this to you, I am having, not only is this a difficult subject, I am having difficulty presenting it to you, so please bear with me.  Let me remind you that in Kabbalah, Kabbalah is very different then the way doctrine is taught in the church today, now the way I teach the doctrine of Christ is similar to Kabbalah, but in the church world, you are taught this is right and this is wrong, but the Lord showed us as we were bringing forth the doctrine of Christ here many years ago, that the word of God is fluid, the word of God is not rigid. First of all, you have to distinguish between the word of God which is a person.

 

            Jesus Christ is the word of God, so you must distinguish between Him and the Scripture which is the written word.  Those of us who have been given permission by the Lord to go on to perfection, are being instructed that this written word, the letter which is really a translation of the Hebrew, because the true written word is the Hebrew, we deal with a translation of the Hebrew, the written word is a point of contact, it is a point of contact. Do you know what the written word is?

 

            It is the place where the Cherubim meet the Spirit of God in the holy place. Jesus build 2 Cherubim, and put them over the mercy seat, and I will meet you there. Well those 2 Cherubim are in our hearts or in our minds, and they are Christ Jesus and Christ and I am not going to review that doctrine of Christ right now, as far as Kabbalah is concerned, the 2 Cherubim are Ze'ir Anpin, ZA, and Malkhut, or ZA and Nukvah, the female.  Where the male and the female meet  the Spirit of God from on high comes down and joins us. In Kabbalah this is called the unification, and we have recently studied this, at the last part of the message called Pregnancy, Childhood, and Suckling, that the whole purpose of Kabbalah or Kabbalah in a nutshell is one word, unification. The whole Torah, everything that we study, everything that we read about has one end, and that end is that ZA should unify or marry which is the Christian expression, his female, the Nok.  The Christian Scripture says Jesus Christ is marrying His church.

 

            What we are talking about is the marriage or the union of Christ Jesus in the individual with the personality. Those are the 2 Cherubim that meet each other, that face each other and meet each other over the mercy seat, and what is the mercy seat? It is the heart of man.  When those 2 Cherubim, when Christ Jesus and your personality, I am going to express it that way, when Christ Jesus within you and your personality or the spirit of your mind  meet in a holy union, the glorified Jesus Christ comes down and joins you right where you are.

 

            That is the Kabbalistic unification which is the end of everything that God is doing in our lives according to Kabbalah. According to Kabbalah, the unification of ZA and the Nok is the culmination of all things, but those of us who study the doctrine of Christ know that, that is just the beginning of all things, that the unification of Christ Jesus in you, with your personality, and then the joining of the glorified Jesus Christ in that holy union, is just the beginning of the process which will restore us to our first estate.

 

            Now I said all that to say this, in advance Scriptural studies, and for those of us who have been granted permission to go on to perfection, we are given the understanding that the written word, that the letter of the word is merely the point of contact, the place at which the glorified Jesus Christ meets us, and who are we? We are ZA and his female, the Nok, we are also Christ Jesus who is married to the personality which we are.  There is a 3rd factor, the glorified spirit which is above the powers and principalities of the earth, comes in and joins us, and that is the three-fold cord that is undefeatable. That three-fold cord also known, the spirit of revelation of the glorified Jesus Christ, has He is the word of God and in Himself is infinite. We know that Jesus Christ can no longer die, but from the point of view of Jesus Christ being the word, we need to know that, that word is infinite. If we were capable of memorizing this whole Bible, every single word of it, knowing that at the drop of a hat, like a computer, knowing where we could find any word, book chapter and verse, and we thought and we had read all the books, so and so's, brother so and so's commentaries, sister so and so's commentaries, and we could exhort the church on any Scripture, Jesus Christ could come to us and say, all of that has just become debunked, it is worthless, it means nothing, because I am bringing you up to a higher spiritual level where in order to sustain yourself on that level you must understand the word of God on a much higher level.

 

            Brethren, the example is, you teach your children how to read in the first grade or in kindergarten, they are learning to read today, but if you take an immigrant to the United States whose first language is not English and they come to this United States, this country and become a citizen and they want to learn how to read English, well you teach them with the same technique and with the same understanding that you have taught the children in Kindergarten and first grade? Of course not, the same thing concerning history, do you teach adults who for whatever reason have not been educated, American history on the same level that you will teach it to children in 2nd grade? Of course not.

 

            We are challenged, we mortal man, fallen man, we are challenged to understand that there is an understanding, there is an unlimited infinite understanding of the word of God. We can never ever be left without spiritual food. No matter how accomplished we become, how intelligent we become, how knowledgeable we become, no matter how great this spiritual manifestation of the word of God is in our lives, there will always be a greater manifestation of the word of God, because the word of God is our food. We will never overtake the word of God, we will never overtake the glorified Jesus Christ, He will always have the preeminence over us, and He will always know something that we do not know.      

 

            Well brethren that does not fit in with the way that the church world is teaching today.  I am the first person to admit to you how difficult it is to walk where the word of God is fluid, where you have to try the spirit on the teaching, without sinning against the teacher, or without sinning against your brethren, this is a mature walk, you must learn, you must be able to distinguish between the mind of Christ and the carnal mind, it is a whole, there is a whole program of teaching that we teach here at Living Epistles, which equips you to walk in the Spirit and experience the fluid word of God. Well the Kabbalists know all about this. The Kabbalists know that there are many respected Rabbis that they acknowledge have a relationship with God, at least at the time that this doctrine was coming forth, I do not really know what their relationship is with the Lord right now, or I am not willing to give my opinion on this tape, they know that different Rabbis or different scholars can have different opinions on the same Scripture and all 3 could be right, the whole Zohar which is a glorious spiritual commentary on the word of God consists of 3 or more, 3 Rabbis and sometimes a 4th person discussing the Scripture, giving their individual opinions and they are all right, the word of God is fluid, God can do anything with it that he wants.

 

             I have spent so many years being trained to be able to even think the way I am expressing myself to you right now, and the other day I was listening to you a radio program, I took a trip into the city and I was listening to a Christian radio program where a I would call a preacher preaching the basic word was given a Bible study, and I know for a fact that he was interpreting Scriptural symbols incorrectly, there is no question about it, he was saying for example that the widow and the orphan are the Christian that have been driven out of the church by the Pharisees.           

 

            Well, we know that the widow is the human being that is not married to God, and that the orphan is the human being that is not pregnant with Christ, that is the spiritual understanding of it, but listen brethren, what is so interesting is that I was very aware that the conclusion that this preacher reached was correct, even though he was misinterpreting his spiritual symbols because based on the amount of knowledge that he had, he could not really understand, and true spiritual significance of being a spiritual widow or a spiritual orphan, but nevertheless this man had heard from the Spirit of God, he had a word in his heart, and the word in his heart is that the Kingdom age has come to an end, and that the true believers that are not, the true believers that are speaking the truth to the apostate church are being despised and rejected and driven out of the church, that is true it is happening today.    

 

            The Scriptural witness that the Lord gave him to support this revelation that he had in his heart were some Scriptures in the Old Testament prophets about the widows and the orphans, do you hear what I am saying, from my point of view, from my mature point of view, he was interpreting those symbols completely incorrectly, but he still got to the right place, he got the message that the Lord wanted him to have and he was broadcasting it on the radio, and because I have a revelation like this, I can enjoy listening to anyone who is truly preaching by the Spirit of God preach. Do you understand what I am saying? Because if they are truly preaching by the Spirit of God, there is a message that is come forth even if they are bringing it forth imperfectly, God has anointed me to look right to the heart of what the Lord is saying and to be blessed by it.

 

            The word of God is fluid, now of course you reach a point where there is such a thing as error where you do go into error and, of course, what we are doing here, teaching Kabbalah is trying to rectify the error of Kabbalah, which is or and has to date prevented anyone hoping to ascend into the world to come, or to return to their first estate, or to return to immortality in God, in righteousness, nobody that I know of has been able to do it through the methods of Kabbalah, and yet Kabbalah is an excellent source of information and revelation in the Scripture and it has aspects that are highly spiritual, that if you study them, they will raise you up spiritually, but of course the danger with is, that if you study Kabbalah and Christ is not formed in you, your old man will be raised up spiritually and that is not a good thing.

 

            The Lord has given this ministry the assignment of studying Kabbalah, and weaving it together with the doctrine of Christ with the full intention of bringing forth the full power of God necessary to raise the church back up to its first estate which is, spiritual giant in immortality, that is what we are called to, we are not called to go to another place, or another planet where we will have our own mansion, we are called to be restored, to have our minds restored to a spiritual place that it is so high that it excels above the powers and principalities of this world, and restores us to immortality.  Once our mind ascends to that high place, our whole life will reconcile itself, because the mind and especially the unconscious part of the mind controls everything that happens to us in our lifetime, and if you doubt that, even the psychiatrists will tell you that, whether it is the spirit of your carnal mind or the unconscious part of your carnal mind or the unconscious part of your Christ mind, the unconscious part of your mind which is the spirit that rules through you is really controlling your entire life and you have very little to say about it.

 

            The people who have the least trouble in their lifetime, are people by some blessing on their life, have their conscious minds largely in agreement with their unconscious mind,  praise the Lord. I told you all that to tell you this, that the part that we are up to in our study in the Gate of Reincarnations is called dealing with the uncertainty principle, we have two uncertainty principles that we are dealing with at this time. What is an uncertainty principle? We have two statements by Rabbi Chayyim Vital whose work we are studying, The Gate of Reincarnations, we have two situations where it appears that he has made statements that contradict one another.  In the immature believer, now brethren, I am not putting anybody down but I am telling you the church is very spiritually immature, especially when it comes to doctrine which is philosophy, and we have a church world that is in their carnal mind that thinks that they are instructed by God to judge the teaching of the teacher, whether that teacher be spiritual or a false teacher, they do not understand that we must get the witness in our spirit through our relationship with our Savior the Lord Jesus Christ as to whether or not that teacher is speaking the truth, you are not supposed to go up and challenge the teacher who knows so much more than you do whether what that teacher knows is error or not, is not up to the student to decide,  so there a tremendous lack in the church today of a knowledge as to how to deal with a teacher of Christian philosophy. 

 

            The reason for this, is that there are very few teachers of Christian philosophy out there, and those who do teach, and what is Christian philosophy, it is just doctrine, doctrine is philosophy, that is what it is, and the few preachers that do preach Christian philosophy that I know of are on tv, which means they are evangelists, which means there is no personal contact.  If you do not like what the person is saying, you shut them off and they never know the difference. As far as teachers of Christian philosophy on a local level, in a local fellowship, you cannot have members of the congregation coming up and challenging the teacher because you have to be on the same level to challenge somebody, and the student is not the same level with the teacher.

 

            Wherefore at some point the church will have to receive an instruction, you know as to how to deal with distress at what they hear being taught, and of course no matter what your problem is, if you think the teacher is wrong, or if you are distressed because of it, the answer is always to go before the Lord Jesus Christ humble yourself and say Lord that is a teacher and I am a student,  but what they said really disturbed me, if it is true please help me to understand it, and if it is not true please bring a reconciliation between this teacher and myself, you know, or tell me, or whatever, it all depends on, how did I get into this today, I cannot get into this whole teaching right now, if the Lord has sent you to that church, you have to submit yourself to God and bite your tongue until the Lord corrects you or corrects that teacher, and most likely you will be the one to be corrected, although it is possible for the teacher to make a mistake. If the Lord did not send you to that church, then you can ask the Lord if He wants you to leave, but if you have been going there for two months already, most likely the Lord has sent you there.  Do not just get up and leave because you just heard something that makes you upset or that you think is wrong after two months.  Let us go on.

 

            We are in chapter one, section 5 where we are looking a review by the translator, and let me just start off by reading you what he says here. He says, it will be worth while to review some of what has been taught until now and specifically in relation to the information presented in this section, the text of this section contains two distinct ambiguities, what is an ambiguity, something, it is a contradiction, or something that is not clear, to distinct areas which appear to have a double meaning, ambiguous means to have a double meaning, it is not clear, it is not resolved in our mind. Do you mean Rabbi Chayyim Vital writes this great Rabbi writes and in his writings we have ambiguities? Absolutely. I have had people come to me and say, Pastor Vitale, you just contradicted yourself,

 

            I remember when you did that, you were all upset with me, but the truth is that you did not understand me, or perhaps I did not explain it adequately, but I did not contradict myself, it sounded that way to you because your understanding, you had not been enlightened in that area yet.  It is so important that you take the position that you are wrong and not the teacher,  if you take the position that the teacher is wrong, that is a spirit of pride and you will never learn anything.  Here we have the translator saying that this great Rabbi Chayyim Vital who wrote this whole he is the student of Isaac Luria upon which all modern Kabbalah is based, I do not know if Kabbalah is the right word, but most Kabbalists study with Isaac Luria today through Chayyim Vital as teacher, and the translator is saying there are two ambiguities in this text, two areas that appear to contradict each other that are not clear, and he says these distinct ambiguities are separated by a parenthetical statement which is not uncommon in the writings of the Arizal.

 

            What is a parenthetical statement, well a parenthetical statement is something that you would put in parenthesis, a parenthetical statement is something that you would...

 

            Drawing #1, I have written a parenthetical statement for you, Rosie is going to a graduation party, open parenthesis, wearing a pink dress, closed parenthesis, at 4 p.m. Now we can easily say Rosie is going to a graduation party at 4 p.m. The whole idea of the sentence is very clear without the information in the parenthesis, wearing a pink dress is additional information that is not essential to understand the main thrust of the sentence.  Is everybody all right with that?

 

            Getting back to the Gate of Reincarnations now, the translator is telling us that in section 4 b, that he wants to review the previous section because in the previous section there are two distinct ambiguities separated by a parenthetical statement which is not uncommon in the writings of the Arizal. Now ambiguities are areas that are not clear that can have two or more meanings.  What the translator is saying, there are two areas of confusion, now please bear with me, I am having trouble teaching you this.

 

            Now, let us just turn back to the previous section which is section 4 of chapter 1, you will see that in section 4 of chapter 1, there are 5 items, can you see that, on the first page you see item #1? It is not sufficient to only rectify the particular spot to which the soul is connected, and this #1, we discussed on this very same tape at the end of the previous day that we were preaching here. Now item #2, item #2 says, this means that one must be involved with the study of Torah and the doing of Torah which is Mitzvah, well I am not getting in to the meat of this right now, I am trying to tell you that there are, God help me, there are two statements that appear to contradict each other, and then there are another two statements that appear to contradict each other and in the midst of these four statements there is a fifth statement that has nothing to do with any of the four statements, can you hear this?

 

            The translator is telling us that item #3 is a parenthetical statement or a parenthetical item, the subject of which has nothing to do with the other four items, and of the other four items, there are two sets of ambiguities or uncertainties, what does that mean? We are not really sure which way it is going to go. It is not that Rabbi Chayyim Vital does not know, it is that we are not sure, let us continue to study and seek the Lord and see what the truth is.

 

            For this reason because this area, section 4 of chapter 1 is so confusing, the translator wants to review it, and that is what we are doing, we are reviewing it. Now before I go on with section #2, I would like to make it clear which two of the four contradict each other? Do you understand this, there are four items and these four items come in two sets,  in one set, and we do not know what the numbers are yet, one item contradicts the other, and then we have another set and that item contradicts the other and these four items are labeled, 1, 2, 4, and 5, because #3 is parenthetical, it has nothing to do with anything else.

 

            Let us continue to read on section 4 b, and see what, how the translator will help us to identify the contradictions or as he says, the ambiguities that which is not clear.  He calls them our author calls them in paragraph three, of section 4 b, on the first page there, he calls them uncertainties, he calls these ambiguities, these statements that seem to have more than one meaning, he calls them an uncertainty because if I tell you that plant is green, I tell you with certainty that, that plant is green, but if I tell you the weather is nice outside, I cannot tell you that with certainty because the truth is that I cannot look out a window from where I am sitting.  I cannot tell you with certainty that the weather is nice outside, the weather may have turned since I last looked outside... our translator is telling us there are two uncertainties contained in the text, and now he tells us that they are purposely left unsettled.

 

            Now in the church world brethren, and again I am not knocking the church world, I am just pointing out that there is a distinct line of difference between the Christians who have moved in to this mature place and it is a very difficult and a very dangerous place, but if the Lord Jesus takes you in you will be safe, a place where we can deal, where we have been given the privilege of dealing with the fluid word of God, which means that you have to work, you have to read, you have to study, you have to pray and you have to get your answers from God.

 

            Now you can get your answers from a teacher that you believe hears from God if that is where the Lord has put you.  Until you can learn to do this yourself, you will be under a teacher, but the answers are not necessarily written in stone, this is the way it is, anyone that says anything else is wrong, this is not maturity in Christ .  We have been given the privilege of moving in this realm, and we are now reading the translator's comment saying, I just translated this great Rabbi who is greatly respected and has been studied for years and there are two uncertainties contained in his text that he has purposely left unsettled. You know, I remember years ago, I was not all that young, I was in my twenties, I just grew up a little late, and I had some questions about life that I needed to be answered and I was speaking to someone that I thought could help me, and he did not have the answer for me, and I was very angry at him, because I thought that he knew the answer and he just did not want to tell me, and he laughed at me, it was loving laughed at me, and he said, I do not know the answer, why do you think I have all the answers?

 

              Brethren, if you study under a teacher who thinks they have all the answers, who thinks that they cannot be wrong, who thinks that they do not have to go to God and check themselves out, you should really seek the Lord about whether or not you should be in that place, because I will tell you outright, not only do I not have all the answers, the more I learn the less I realize that I know. What I know I know, what the Lord has taught me, I know, but even then, there are grades of situations you know, if you know the answer to something but another factor comes in, we were talking about this just a couple of weeks ago, you know what you are going to do renting that apartment, you have made up your mind, you have decided, but then another factor comes in, no one is renting the apartment, you have to make a change.

 

            Every time a new piece of evidence comes in, you have to be open to the Lord to see something different in that Scripture or in that situation, and this is a mature place to be, not many people in the church are in this place brethren, they will be because the church has to grow up, one way or another the church will grow up. Praise the Lord.  Reading form our translator now in the 4th paragraph of section 4 b, the first uncertainty emerges from contrasting paragraphs 2 and 4, there is our information, if paragraphs 2 and 4 are an ambiguity, what are the numbers of the other 2 paragraphs that are an uncertainty? If paragraphs 2 and 4 contradict each other, which paragraphs, which 2 paragraphs are the 2nd, represent the 2nd uncertainty?

 

            COMMENT: I say 1 and 5.

 

            COMMENT:  I said 1 and 3.

 

            PASTOR VITALE: Now you please tell the one who said 1 and 5, you please tell the sister 1 and 3 why she is mistaken.

 

            COMMENT: Because the uncertainties are in 1 and 5, so that would make the three...

 

            PASTOR VITALE: No what is it about paragraph 3 that makes that wrong, what did I tell you about paragraph 3?

 

            COMMENT: Parenthetical.

 

            PASTOR VITALE: Paragraph 3 is the parenthetical paragraph that has nothing to do with anything else, so if it has nothing to do with the other four paragraphs, it cannot be involved in a contradiction.  Did you have another question after that?

 

            COMMENT: I was going to ask about #1. Why is that not a parenthetical statement?

 

            PASTOR VITALE: Because of the content of the statement. See, apparently I have not made this concept clear, so what we are going to do is we are going to take a picture of what is on the board and I am going to have to put this on the board for you because you do not understand it. The previous drawing that call drawing #1, is actually drawing #6, we are now looking at drawing #7.

 

            The word ambiguous means to have more than one meaning, if a statement has more than one meaning then the intent of the author is uncertain, or I think we should really correct that to say, if a teaching has more than one meaning, then the intention of the author is uncertain, what does that mean? If the author says two different things, then we do not know what he is really saying.  Let me change that on the board. If a teacher says two different things about one issue or about the same issue, then the intention of the teacher is uncertain. Chapter 1, section 4 of the Gate of Reincarnations lists two uncertainties, the first uncertainty is a contrast between paragraph 2 and paragraph 4 of section 4. Now in paragraph 2, Rabbi Vital says, he says two things, he says, a) one must be involved with Torah and the doing of Mitzvah. What are we talking about, we are talking about getting our soul rectified.  We are talking about a return to righteousness according Lurianic Kabbalah.

 

            Let me remind you that we must understand Lurianic Kabbalah before we can weave it together with the doctrine of Christ and bring forth a product that will produce the power necessary to catapult us up to the higher realms of the spirit.  We must understand the error before we can bring a correction. Lurianic Kabbalah says, one must be involved with Torah and doing of Mitzvah, doing of good works in order to become righteous, and the second thing that he says, the 2nd point of paragraph 2 is, if a person sins and blemishes a particular spot in Asiyah, now remember Asiyah is a partzuf, the Asiyah that he is talking about is not the world of Asiyah, he is talking about the partzuf which is the Nefesh or the Malkhut of the 10 general Sefirot. If a person sins and blemishes a particular spot in Asiyah, he must rectify that spot even though it is not the place to which his Nefesh is attached.

 

            Let us see if we can find the contradiction, paragraph 2 made those two points, now let us see what paragraph 4 says, it is possible, this is paragraph 4, it is possible that the concept of Tikune rectification, that means making your soul righteous applies only to blemishes resulting from sin.  That means you have to fix, if you have a blemish that you received from sin, you have to fix it.  He is saying, it is possible that the concept of fixing up your soul, Tikune rectification applies only to blemishes resulting from sin and does not apply to the lack of performance of any of the 248 commandments. What does this mean?

 

            It means that if you fail to perform any of these 248 commandments under the law, you do not have to rectify your soul, you do not need to fix your soul. It is possible that the concept of fixing up your soul, making yourself righteous applies only to blemishes resulting from sin, something that you do. You have to rectify your soul if you do sin, but you do not have to rectify your soul if you fail to perform the positive commandments.  If you violate the Thou Shalt Not, you need rectification, but if you violate, Thou shall, if you just do not do Thou Shall, there is no consequence, you do not need rectification. Can you see that?

 

            We have worked that out, paragraph 4 asks two questions really, is it possible that you need Tikune rectification or do you need deliverance , because you sin, do you need deliverance when you sin? Kabbalah say, or Rabbi Vital says, It is possible that concept of Tikune rectification applies only to blemishes resulting from sin, it is possible, that means you may need deliverance if you sin.

 

            The 2nd half is, it is possible that you need, that the concept of Tikune rectification applies to blemishes, I am sorry, it is possible that the concept of Tikune rectification does not apply to blemishes, that you receive from the lack of performance of the 248 commandments. In other words, it is possible that you do not need deliverance even if you disobey or you do not perform the 248 commandments. It is possible that you need deliverance when you sin, and it is also possible that you do not need deliverance when you refuse to perform the commandments.  The example we gave as we were working this out off the tape, is that Jesus said to one man He said, Go and do this, and the servant said, I will, and he did not, and then Jesus said to another man, Go and do this, and the second man said, No I will not, but then he did it.  Who was the faithful servant?

 

            The question is about the man who said he would do it and he did not, does he need deliverance, is there something in his nature that we would have to call sin that would make him disobedient, that is the question.  It is not just a question of not doing as you are told, to not do as you are told is disobedience, it is just simply disobedience which is rebellion and pride.  This is the question that Rabbi Vital is asking and he is not really asking the question, he is making a statement, he is the teacher, and you would expect your teacher to be saying to you, if you sin you need deliverance, and if you do not do as you are told, you need deliverance, because it is stemming from a root of disobedience which is rebellion and pride, that is what you would expect your teacher to say, but that is not what Rabbi Vital is saying, he is saying it is possible that if you sin, well I am sorry, I am really sorry, I have been saying that wrong, it is possible that concept of Tikune rectification applies only to blemishes resulting from sin, of course you he knows that you need deliverance if you sin.

 

            He is saying that it is possible that deliverance, I am going to say deliverance because we can relate to that word more easily, it is possible that the concept of deliverance applies only to sin, and it is also possible that the need for deliverance applies to sin from doing sin, and you also need deliverance from not doing the positive commandments. I will say it again, Rabbi Vital says it is possible that you only need deliverance if you sin, but then it is also possible that you need deliverance if you sin and you also need deliverance if you do not do as your told.  Which is right? He is not telling us.  We see an ambiguity right here in paragraph #4, but the translator tells us that an uncertainty exists between, when we compare paragraphs 2 and paragraphs 4, so now we have to find out where the contradiction is when we compare 2 to paragraph 4, and that is going to be a challenge because it took us all this time to understand paragraph 4. Now let us go over what paragraph 2 says. Paragraph 2 has two parts to it also, a) one must be involved with Torah and the doing of Mitzvah. Look we are having such a hard time with this I am going to help you out, the ambiguity between paragraph 2 and paragraph 4 exists between (a) of paragraph 2, let us not even look at (b) of paragraph 2 . I am going to tell you that 2a contradicts paragraph 4. I want you all to tell me what the contradiction is.  We have had some difficulties here in the congregation trying to explain this principle but I think we have got it straightened out now, so for the people who will be listening to the tape or reading the transcript, we are now looking at drawing #7a, at the bottom of drawing #7a where it says, it is uncertain what Rabbi Vital is saying or what he is teaching us since these two statements, paragraph 2 and paragraph 4 appear to contradict each other.

 

            Now paragraph 2a says, that we must be involved with Torah, Mitzvah and Mitzvah is good works, we must be involved with the study of Torah and the doing of good works, but in the same teaching paragraph 4b says, failure to perform the positive commandments may not require Tikune or Tikune rectification or deliverance in the Christian terms.

 

            Going on to drawing #7b, let us establish that the study of Torah and the doing of Mitzvah which is good works is the same thing as the positive commandments. The study of Torah and the doing of Mitzvah are merely two of the 248 positive commandments.  That means that we can change those words around, we can say, you must be involved with the positive commandments, I am sorry, paragraph 2a says that you must be involved with the positive commandments and 4b says that failure to perform the positive commandments may not require Tikune or may not require deliverance.  It appears that Rabbi Vital is completely contradicting himself. Let me say it again, because you cannot go on until you understand this, paragraph 4b says that you have to do the positive commandments or what?  You do not get rectified, or you do not get delivered, or you are not restored to your relationship with God which is the whole purpose of this teaching and of reincarnation is to be brought close to, to be joined with to be restored in your relationship with God which imparts eternal life to us.

 

            Paragraph 2a says, you have to do the positive commandments, but paragraph 4b says, that if you do not do the positive commandments, failure to perform the positive commandments may not be required, for what, may not be required for Tikune rectification, may not be required for deliverance, may not be, doing the positive commandments may not be required to restore your relationship with God.  Brethren, the sign of maturity in a disciple is that when he sees a contradiction like this, his first thought is, Lord, help me to understand the teacher knows something that I do not know. Now if you are hearing this tape or you are reading this transcript or you are reading even this study on the Gate of Reincarnations and your reaction to this apparent contradiction and I say apparent contradiction because it is really not a contradiction, it just appears to be a contradiction, if your reaction is wow, this is a false teacher or this teacher does not know what he is talking about, you are revealing to yourself or there is being revealed to you your own immaturity and lack of spiritual understanding.

 

            Praise the Lord, let us go on with drawing #7b, study of Torah and the doing of Mitzvah which is good works is the same thing is saying positive commandments, study of Torah and the doing of the Mitzvah are two of the 248 positive commandments. Paragraph 2a says we must do the positive commandments and paragraph 4b, is that right 4b, yes, says we may not be required to do the positive commandments. Well that sure sounds like a contradiction to me, let us examine this further, must do is the same thing as saying always, we must always do the positive commandments, may not be required means, sometimes. If you may not be required, that means that sometimes you may be required and sometimes you may not be required.  When must we do the positive commandments and when may we not be required to do the positive commandments? We must do the positive commandments when we cannot hear from God for our self.

 

             If you do not know what to do, you obey the law. When may we not be required to do the positive commandments?

 

            There are two occasions when we may not be required to do the positive commandments, the 1st one is when God gives us another instruction, and the 2nd possibility, when we may not be required to do the positive commandments is when God's prophet gives us another instruction under the anointing. Now brethren, this is a very dangerous lifestyle, to live a lifestyle where you are judging whether or not God has given you another commandment and whether or not God's prophet is telling you to do something that you would never do yourself but it is under the anointing and you really should do it. Now I want to suggest to you that the majority of Jews that follow the law are in the same place as the church today, they are afraid to let go of what they believe to be their foundation. They are afraid to let go, they are afraid of being deceived and with good reason, because deception can result in spiritual death and utter destruction.  There must come a time in our life brethren through much prayer and crying out to God that we put our fears aside and step out believing that Jesus Christ will keep us.  What I have just described to you is the transition from being under the law to being a spiritual person under the instruction and authority of Christ Jesus.

 

            The church thinks that they are under the new covenant which is out from under the law, but they are very much under the law. See, the new covenant is the internalized Christ, being ruled by the spirit within, that is a very hard lifestyle, it is fraught with danger and pressures surrounded by destructions on every side, and you make mistakes,  but if you are truly anchored to Christ Jesus, and if He has truly invited you to go on to perfection and leading you, you will not be destroyed.

 

            ell everybody is saying, I am not willing to risk that, I am not willing to take that chance, that I may not be hearing from God. Well then you will stay an infant forever.  Brethren, this is even a dangerous message to be preaching, this is not for babies, but I will tell you this, that when you step out, when you step out of the boat onto the water and you start to walk, it is highly unlikely that the Lord is calling you to do that without a teacher. Now that is my testimony, but I was called, you know you can take this up with God if you do not like it, but I was called to be the person who is heading up this mature level of ministry to teach the believers and the brethren how to move on to the next step, and I was called forth without a human teacher, the glorified Jesus Christ called me Himself and trained me and is still training me Himself and let me tell you it is a very difficult painful lifestyle. However the believers that the Lord places here in this ministry or places under me for instruction, it is a lot easier for you then it is for me, if you will submit yourself to my instruction, the problem is that most of you do not, and most of you do not even understand that you are not doing what you are supposed to be doing.  All that I can do is talk to you, but as far as tonight's message is concerned, this is the truth of the Scripture, it is the truth for the Jew, and it is the truth for the Christian. The law will keep you safe only for so long, when the Lord says it is time for you to grow up and become a man, if you will not come out from under the law, you will remain an infant and you will die. The law will only keep you safe for so long as the Lord says it is all right for you to be in that spiritual place. When the Lord says, Step out of the boat and walk on the water, and you refuse to come, that you know even if you tell me, well I do not believe that it is God telling me to do that, if it is in fact God telling you to do it and you will not come, you are in disobedience.

 

            The Lord told the Jews, the Hebrew children in the wilderness to go into the promised land and they heard the bad report of the spies and they refused to go, all except two, they refused to go, they were afraid, they did not believe it was God, and what happened to them? They died in the wilderness, why? Because of disobedience. How were they disobedient? God told them to enter into the promised land and they would not go.  Let me leave you with this instruction, it is highly unlikely if you are hearing this tape or reading this message that God has called you to go on to perfection by yourself. He has called you to be under a teacher. If you cannot believe that and you are going on without Him you will find out at some point that you have made a mistake. The only exception to that rule, what rule? That when the Lord starts calling Christians up toward perfection He puts you in a discipleship ministry in a personal relationship with a teacher who will have input into your personal life. What does that mean? That means if I see that you are doing something wrong in your personal life, what is something wrong? Something that is going to bring destruction into your life, even though you may think it is personal, I will have to tell you that you are doing something wrong, if the Lord has put you in this ministry, I will have input into your personal life, praise the Lord.

 

            The only time someone raises up a person directly without the authority, without putting them under the authority of a teacher or a whole ministry is when He is raising up the leadership and that is what happened to me, I am the leadership, He raised up the leadership.  The leadership for the new move of God is raised up, the leadership for the next step is raised up. We have been laboring here at this point for fifteen years, we have been laboring tirelessly to bring forth this message to the body of Christ.  It is highly unlikely, I will not go so far as to say impossible, but highly unlikely that the Lord is raising up somebody else to teach the disciples how to be spiritual directly, why? Because once the Lord raises up a man, anyone coming up into this ministry is now trained under the first man that He raises up, that is the way God does things.

 

            I am raising up the teachers, I am here to teach the teachers that are going to go out and have their own discipleship ministries, but God is not teaching one man directly, He has already done that. Now the one man that is raised up will be raising up the other teachers and that is what is happening here at Living Epistles Ministries. Praise the Lord.

 

            Do we understand the problem here? This has been a very difficult teaching, we are being told by the translator, that Rabbi Chayyim Vital has given us some instructions in chapter 4, section 4, Rabbi Chayyim Vital has given us two sets of instructions that contradict each other, and that there is yet another instruction that is parenthetical which has nothing to do with either of the other two sets of instructions, do you understand that?  What we have done today I believe is adequately explain the 1st contradiction or as the translator calls it, the 1st uncertainty, what does that mean? It means that if we read Chayyim Vital's teachings, we are not sure what he is talking about, we are uncertain as to whether or not we have to keep the positive commandments or whether we do not have to keep the positive commandments.

 

            Now the translator does not go into the explanation that I just gave you, when must we keep the positive commandments? When we cannot hear from God for ourselves. When might we not be required to keep the positive commandments? When God gives us a different instruction, when God breaks His own law, or when God's prophet gives us another instruction under the anointing, which is just another way of saying, when God gives us another instruction.

 

           

 

            Well Pastor Vitale, I believe God will never break His own law. God never breaks His own law, that is correct, but He will break a carnal commandment, God will never break His spiritual law, but there is a higher law than the carnal commandment, and that is the spiritual law from a God who has a higher motive. He will break the carnal law, the letter of the law, He will never break the spiritual law. That is not explained in the text of our translation of chapter one of the Gate of Reincarnations. Now I do not know whether the translator does not understand that, the translator's comment is, that this uncertainty was meant to be there.  Whether or not the translator understands what I have just explained to you or perhaps he has a different explanation, I do not know, the translator does not expound on what he thinks that uncertainty means, or why it is there. One thing that has become very obvious to me is that this type of lack of information you might say, or this type of suggestion that is never completely developed is very common in Kabbalah. My understanding is that the teaching of the Kabbalist is that you are not supposed to be studying these teachings without a teacher, you are not supposed to be studying Kabbalah without a teacher. Even if you can find these translations on the Internet which we have done as God has directed us, if you want to get the deep insights behind the words, you must find a Rabbi to teach you Kabbalah, that is what the suggestion is I believe. However, we have a Rabbi teaching us the nuances and the subtleties and the unwritten and unspoken meanings behind the letter of the word of Kabbalah, and the Rabbi that teaches us is the glorified Jesus Christ.

 

            What the Rabbi is telling you is true, unless you have a special call and a special anointing such as we have in this ministry, you should not be pursuing Kabbalah from the Internet, you should not be pursuing it without a teacher because all that you can get on the Internet is the letter of Kabbalah, and the letter of Kabbalah will kill you just as surely as the letter of the Scripture will kill you. You have to get the spirit of the teaching. Praise the Lord.

 

            We are going to close tonight, and we are going to close with a few Scriptures demonstrating the two occasions which are really the same occasion, on which it is you might not be required to keep the positive commandment.  I have two sets of Scriptures for the 1st example, when God gives another instruction, and then I have a 3rd Scripture, when God's prophet gives us another instruction, or when God's prophet tells us to do something that it would be a sin to do.  The first Scripture we will look at is I Samuel 21:4-6.

 

            COMMENT: I Samuel 21:4-6, "And the priest answered David and said, There is no common bread under mine hand but there is hollowed bread, if the young men have kept themselves at least from women. And David answered the priest and said unto him, Of a truth where men have been kept from us about these 3days since I came out and the vessels of the young men are holy, and the bread is in a manner common, yeah though it was sanctified this day in the vessel.  The priest gave him hollowed bread for there was no bread there, but the shewbread that was taken from before the Lord to put hot bread in the day when it was taken away."

 

            PASTOR VITALE: Praise the Lord, now that is not to be, anyway that is all not that clear that David and his men ate bread that was only for the priest, so we go into the New Testament Matthew 12: 3-8 to clarify that.

 

            "But he said to them, have ye not read...", and this is Jesus speaking, "Have ye not read what David did when he was an hungered and they that were with him, how he entered into the house of God and did eat the shewbread which was not lawful for him to eat, neither for them which were with him, but only for the priest? Or have ye not read in the law how that on the Sabbath days the priests in the temple profane the Sabbath and are blameless?" That means that there are certain rituals and certain tasks that the priests have to do, and you not only have to work on the Sabbath day, but you have to have blameless, and also I am adding this in now, a boy child, a male child can be circumcised on the Sabbath day if that is, the circumcision must be on the 8th day after birth, and if that 8th day falls out on a Saturday, it is legal to circumcise him, it is legal for them to do the circumcision because the law of circumcision on the eighth day is higher than the law of the Sabbath.

 

            Going back to Jesus speaking, verse 6, chapter 12 of the book of Matthew. "But I say unto you that in this place is one greater than the temple." In other words, what Jesus is saying, the temple and the requirements of the temple are higher than the Sabbath day, that is why the priests can do the chores on the Sabbath day and be blameless.  The temple is higher than the law of the Sabbath day and then Jesus says, "But I say unto you that in this place is one even greater than the temple." See, the temple is higher than the law and I am a higher law than the temple, that is what Jesus is saying. Verse 7, "But if you had known what this means, I will have mercy and not sacrifice, you would not have condemned the guiltless."  The Pharisees were attacking Jesus for doing the works of the Father, for doing the works the spiritual works of the Father commanded of the Father on the Sabbath day, and Jesus is telling them, My obedience to the Father is a higher law than not only the law of the Sabbath day, it is even a higher law than the law of the temple, and he is rebuking the Pharisees and saying, I am the one that is having mercy  on the Sabbath day.

 

            If you would have understood this Scripture, I will have mercy and not sacrifice because the Sabbath day is a sacrifice. Jesus was saying, I am having mercy, I am ministering the mercy of the father which is a higher law then the sacrifice of the Sabbath day, and Jesus said, If you understood the spirit of that Scripture you would never have condemned me for I am guiltless, I am not guilty of breaking the Sabbath day, you have condemned me because you did not understand that the work that I was doing on the Sabbath day was an act of mercy which is higher than the law of the Sabbath day.

 

            These great scholars, Jesus is telling them that you do not even understand the meaning of the law. Jesus had a commandment from the Father that was higher than the law of the Sabbath day.  Then in verse 8 Jesus says, "For the son of man is Lord even of the Sabbath day." He is the highest spiritual law, and I will tell you this, I have had one or two experiences where Jesus has told me to do something that I would have never ever dreamt of doing on my own, I felt that it was wrong to do, and I had some serious crisis moments in my life believing that it was God telling me to do it. It was a very traumatic experience. I hope I never have to face anything like that again, but if we have to, we have to. We just have to pray and make sure that it is God and tell God that we have done everything that we can to prove to ourselves or to understand that it is Him instructing us, and now that we have done everything that we can do, and of course I teach all of these things, but we are not going to put it on this message, there is a check list that you can do to convince yourself whether or not you have heard from God, once you have done all you can do, then you tell the Lord if you are deceived, you are now in His hands, if you are deceived and doing something that is not of God and He...(End of Tape 2)

 

           

 

Tape 3

 

            We ran off that tape so I am just going to repeat verse 8 of Matthew 12, which says, "For the son of man is Lord even of the Sabbath day." Jesus was telling the Pharisees, there is a higher law than the law of the Sabbath day and the natural example that He gave the Pharisees was that there is a higher law called the law of the temple, the works of the temple, the ministry of the temple, and I have also added the factor of the circumcision of a male child on the eighth day when it falls on the Sabbath day, are two examples of there being a law higher than the Sabbath day and also of the simple fact that there are degrees or grades of law, and that one law can definitely preempt another law. Then Jesus goes on to say in verse 8, that He Himself is the law and the law that He is, the law of the Father, is even higher than the law of the temple, He is the highest law, He is the Lord even of the Sabbath day, and there is no law that is higher than He is. Glory to God.

 

            We have one more series of Scriptures which Xxxx will read, I Kings 20:35-37, and this is our example of a prophet under the anointing asking someone to break the law.

 

            COMMENT: I Kings 20:35-37, "And a certain man of the sons of the prophets said unto his neighbor in the word of the Lord, Smite me I pray thee. And the man refused to smite him. Then said he unto him, because thou hast not obeyed the voice of the Lord, behold, as soon as thou art departed from me a lion shall slay thee. And as soon he was departed from him, a lion found him and slew him. Then he found another man, and said, Smite me I pray thee. And the man smote him so that in smiting he wounded him."

 

            PASTOR VITALE: What is the proof here that this prophet was under the anointing when he asked these two men to smite him? Because it is against the law to smite an elder and a prophet is an elder, that is a serious crime. The proof that the prophet was under the anointing was that the man who refused to was destroyed by a lion and the man who obeyed him was not hurt.  Of course, at the moment that you are being challenged to do what the prophet tells you to do and in that moment you have to discern whether or not that prophet is under the anointing or not, in that moment you are required to distinguish between the carnal mind and the Christ mind, you required to recognize the anointing.   That is not an easy thing to do, but these are the, and in this particular case, the poor man did not even have time to say, I want to think about it.

 

            The 1st man that the prophet approached was under the law, he said, God forbid, I will never strike a prophet, and he was killed for his obedience to the law, he was spiritually killed, that lion was a spiritual lion, and just for your information I do not believe that the man was destroyed permanently, I think this is the Scripture's way of saying that in that moment, the way we would express it in our studies here is in that moment you killed Christ.  If you had a choice, you had to choose one way or the other and you made a mistake and you could not recognize Christ in you chose your carnal mind, in that moment you sacrificed Christ, a lion came out of the spiritual jungle and killed Christ.  Then the Lord Jesus will raise Christ in you from the dead, and I believe that is what that Scripture means.

 

            The 2nd man apparently discerned the anointing. Well Pastor Vitale, what if the 2nd man did not discern the anointing, what if he was just a reprobate man that had no problem striking a prophet? My answer to you is, I do not believe, well let me say it this way, I believe that the Lord directed the prophet to these two men, I do not think the prophet picked two men off of the street, I think he went to the man that the Lord sent him to, and I do not believe that the Lord would have sent a prophet to ask somebody to strike him to some criminal in the street, just in case you are not familiar with this Scripture, the reason the prophet was doing this is this, in the Old Testament times, I do not see anything like this happening today, if the Lord would send a prophet to somebody, frequently the prophet would come with paraphernalia, either he would come, well in this case, he came with a bleeding face because it was a prophecy of judgment, of doom that was about to be pronounced on Jeroboam, I believe, or in other, at the moment the thought is eluding me, but I know there were other prophets where the Lord had them do something with pans and breaking bread in pans, and that is what I mean by paraphernalia.  The Lord would send a prophet with something visible to show the people that would emphasize the message that the prophet had to speak.

 

            Apparently the Lord has told this prophet, I want you to have your face bleeding when you pronounce judgment on Jeroboam.  The prophet then I am sure the Lord would not tell the prophet that and not tell him that man.  The Lord, so the Lord sent the prophet to the man.  Now what about the man that did smite the prophet, maybe he just did it because he was a wise guy, you know. I do not think the Lord would have sent the prophet to a wise guy, number one, he sent the prophet to a holy man who could discern the anointing, the first man should have discerned the anointing but did not, but he was equipped to discern the anointing or the Lord would not have sent the prophet to him, but even more important is, if the man smote the prophet with a wrong motive, if the man was a criminal that said, Wow this is an opportunity for me to beat up a prophet, he would not have walked away blameless. Judgment would have fallen on him too, even though the prophet asked him to do it, because the motive is the name of the game.

 

            Now this very same prophet by the way, that submitted himself to being struck so that he could prophesy to Jeroboam with a bleeding face is the same prophet that the Lord said to go one way and come back another way, and do not stop and talk to anyone on the way, and this very same prophet was, after he did this great work, he sacrificed himself to being wounded, he spoke the word to Jeroboam which probably could have had his guards grab him and kill him right on the spot, but this prophet escaped with his life and then was seduced by another prophet who said to him, Oh I know that God told you not to go back a different way than the way you came, but I am a prophet too, you know, the Lord told you to go straight home, but come and have dinner with me, I am prophet too, God speaks to me also.  The first prophet who, I mean this is a great honor to have God use you to this degree to pronounce judgment on a king you know, was now seduced by another prophet, and the lion came out of the jungle, out of the spiritual jungle or the spiritual forest and killed the prophet, he dies. Interesting, is it not?

 

             In another place the Scripture says, Do not ever think that you are standing,  no matter how great a feat God has used you to perform, do not ever think you have arrived because the very minute that you think you have arrived, Satan, the unconscious part of the mind, is right there to tempt you, to test you, and to prove that you have not arrived.

 

            The only way any of us are going to make it, any of will make it, is to stay humble before the Lord, and as we were discussing off of the tape, nobody is indispensable, everybody is replaceable, I am replaceable, everybody is replaceable. God can do the same thing that He is doing in anyone of us in somebody else. Well you say, well it would take Him a whole lifetime to raise up somebody else to do what you did. The Lord is righteous, and if His plan of salvation has to be put off a whole lifetime because He will not tolerate arrogance in the people He has chosen to lead, He will wait another lifetime, He is very patient, our Lord is very patient, He will not share His glory with another.

 

            There is nobody in His kingdom that is so important that they, that the Lord will accept their sin, because the only important things we do are the things that He does through us. The truth is that we are nothing, and what He did through us, He could do through somebody else.  This is the second time on this message that we are ending up at the very beginning of a tape. Wherefore, we will continue on with this teaching, Lord willing, on the Thursday, praise the Lord, God bless you. Goodnight.

 

            Well praise the Lord, here we are back again on the same tape continuing on with this part 5, which is a very difficult aspect of our study in reincarnation. I am starting out with drawing #8, which is a bit of a review because it has been a while since we have been here. Now what we are talking about here is the rectification of the soul, that is what reincarnation is from a Kabbalistic point of view, it is the rectification of your soul, it is the correction of your fallen soul, and the ultimate goal according to Lurianic reincarnation is to acquire a complete soul, because the people in the earth today are not complete. We are just a fraction of a man.

 

            This is not a new concept to those of us that have studied the doctrine of Christ, both in the Hebrew and in the Greek there is one word that represents a whole man and in the Hebrew that word is Adam, and in the Greek it is, I use to know what the word was in the Greek, at the moment, I think it is anthropos, that represents the whole man, like Jesus was a complete man, and then there is another word that means mortal man, both in the Hebrew and in the Greek.  Mortal man is not a whole man, we are incomplete.  Just to let you place yourself as to what I am talking about, I have drawn on the board for you, the 10 general Sefirot, the Keter through the Malkhut, and I have shown you that each of these, well I cannot say each, that the 10 general Sefirot when you break them down into the 5 partzufim  also relate to a level of soul and one of the worlds.  We see that the Keter of the general Sefirot refers to the Yechida level of soul, and the partzuf is Arik Anpin and the world is Adam Kadmon.

 

            The Chokhmah of the general Sefirot relates to the Chayyah level of soul and the partzuf is Abba and the world that it relates to is Atzilut or the English is emanation. Binah of the 10 Sefirot relates to the Neshamah level of soul, that is the mind of Christ level of soul, and the partzuf is Imma, and the world that, that refers to is Beriah or the world of creation. Then we have the 6 Sefirot from Chesed through Yesod, which refer to Ruach level of soul, and the partzuf Ze'ir Anpin, the world of Yetzirah, the English is the world of formation, and the then we have the Malkhut which is the Nefesh level of soul which relates to the partzuf Nok, and Asiyah or the world of action.

 

            Now in our fallen state, most men are born with only a fragment of the Nefesh of the general Sefirot. All the way down at the bottom we do not even have a Nefesh here, we are a fragment of the Malkhut of the 10 general Sefirot, and what we are is the Nefesh of the, I am sorry we are the Nefesh of the Nefesh of the Nefesh.  You have to break down this Malkhut two more times to find out where we are, we are very low down under the earth. Lurianic Kabbalah teaches that you have to start where you are, Lurianic Kabbalah calls it the root soul, you have to find out where your root is. Even though I can lift my feet up off of the floor here and it looks like I am not attached to anything, I have a spiritual root. We all have a spiritual root that goes into the spiritual realm, we are all plants, spiritual plants. We are the part of the plant that you could see, we are the flowering part of the plant. We have spiritual roots from which we have grown up.  Again according to Lurianic Kabbalah, each of us is seed that comes from some area of Adam Kadmon, anywhere from his feet or from his head, or from his eyes, or from his ears, or from his navel, every human being on the face of the earth is the flowering part of a seed that is rooted in Adam Kadmon.

 

            What we are trying to do is start from the place where we have fallen to, and to rectify our soul to correct it and build up until we have this whole soul, and Lurianic Kabbalah says, we are talking about meriting because Lurianic Kabbalah teaches good works will gain you salvation, so it talks about meriting one's whole soul. Now even Lurianic Kabbalah tells us that it today's, in the fallen condition of the world today, no one is even near having the Yechida or the Chayyah, and it is very unusual to find someone with a Neshamah according to Lurianic Kabbalah.

 

            We know that in Christ Jesus, we are given the Neshamah or we are given the potential for the Neshamah, we are given the seed of the Neshamah, which is the mind of Christ, but we also know those of us who have been laboring here for all of these years, that in order to implement the mind of Christ, we are given the seed of the mind of Christ, but the mind of Christ only grows in direct proportion to the rejection and destruction of our own carnal mind.  We do know that the mind of Christ is available to those of us who are in Christ Jesus.

 

            According to Lurianic Kabbalah, it is a big deal to acquire the whole of your Malkhut and start to acquire the whole of the Nefesh level of soul, and start to work on the Ruach level of soul, that is a big deal, according to Lurianic Kabbalah, but we are up here in heavenly places with Christ Jesus, but every Christian is not living out of it, we may, every Christian does not even have the seed, some of us have the seed but we are not living out of it,.  What we are working on today, just to remind you, we are in chapter 1 of the Gate of Reincarnations and we are trying desperately here to finish up, or I am trying desperately to finish up section 4 of chapter 1, which has been a very difficult section for me to teach you, and actually we have finished section 4 and we had started section 5 which starts out with the translator saying, I am sorry it is section 4b, it is not section 5, section 4b, I think actually we got through section 4b too. Let me see, yes, we got through section 4b, but the translator says that section 4a is so difficult that he wants to go over it again and he is right, and I sort of just slipped through it the 1st time because it was so difficult but I am convicted and I have to do the best I can at least to explain it to my satisfaction.

 

            We have backed up, we have backed up to section 4, which is entitled "Acquiring levels of soul."  The question is, how do we go about acquiring ascendent levels of soul?  You could see that in section 4, the translation gives us five pointers on how to do that. In section 4b the translator points out to us that of these 5, are you all with me, do you see the 5 points as to how to acquire our soul, the translator points out that point 3 is parenthetical which means that it has nothing to do with anything else that chapter 4 is talking about, as a matter of fact, point 3 has to do with a teaching that we have not even heard about yet. Then the translator goes on to point out that there are two uncertainties in points, 1, 2, 4, and 5. We see two uncertainties either earlier on this message which was another night, we contrasted point 1 to point 4, was it point 4, I am sorry we contrasted point 2 to point 4, we explained what an ambiguity was, do you remember that? An ambiguity means that something has two meanings, and we explained what this concept of uncertainty is, that Kabbalah is a mature spiritual study whereby you are challenged, we are all challenged to be able to deal with different concepts, and to understand that this word is so great that it is possible to see things from a different point of view, you know, this is not an orchestrated study where you must believe this and you must believe that, it is a study that is designed to develop your mind, to develop your ability to think and to develop your ability to get a hold of God and get answers for yourself.

 

            What we are dealing with tonight, is the 2nd uncertainty. The 1st uncertainty was, indicated that there was a contradiction or an apparent contradiction between paragraph 2 and paragraph 4, and we explained all that earlier on this message.  Tonight we are going to look at the 2nd uncertainty and the 2nd uncertainty is where we compare paragraph 1 to paragraph 5, what does that mean uncertainty? It means that at a surface glance, at the first glance, it looks like Rabbi Vital is contradicting himself, but he is not contradicting himself.  You will find that when you study under a teacher that is teaching you mature spiritual philosophy, frequently I know this happens with me, people think I am contradicting myself, but I am not, because something is true under one set of circumstances and it will be untrue under another set of circumstances.  We are being trained in critical thinking and how to just develop our mind, this is an incredible mind exercise.

 

            Tonight we are going to look at the 2nd uncertainty, I am going to do the best that I can to help you to understand it, once again, this uncertainty means that if you on the surface when you look at points 1 and 5, which are of the instructions of as to how to rectify our soul and ascend, it appears that the Rabbi is contradicting himself.

 

            Drawing #8 was really just to remind you what we are doing here as I go forward and try to explain the two.  Before we can deal with the uncertainty in the contrast of points 1 and 5, we must understand what points 1 and 5 say, can you understand that?

 

            Before you can see the uncertainty or the contradiction, you have to understand what the two points are saying.  The next thing for me to do unless there are any questions, are there any questions about what is on the board right now?

 

            The next thing for me to do is explain the two points, points 1 and 5, and then we will look at them and see what the contradiction is, or the apparent contradiction is.  Everybody all right?  We are going to take a picture now.

 

            What we are dealing with now is the rectification of the Malkhut, actually the Malkhut of the Malkhut, now each one of these Sefirot or each one of the partzufim of the 10 general Sefirot breaks down into a subset of its own 10 Sefirot and 5 partzufim, do you know what I am talking about?  We are dealing with the subset of Malkhut so there are 10 Sefirot which can be formed into 5 partzufim under Malkhut, and we are trying to find out how to rectify Malkhut, and what Rabbi Vital is saying is that in order to rectify Malkhut you have to break Malkhut down into not only one subset, but a subset of a subset so that you get to the Nefesh of the Nefesh of the Nefesh.  Then he goes on further to say, well first of all let me tell you this, that when you break down the Malkhut of the 10 general Sefirot into a subset of another 10, that 10 has a name, and he calls that 10 a partzuf and the name is Asiyah. Now we are not talking about the world of Asiyah, when you break down as Malkhut into a subset of 10 Sefirot underneath it, it is a partzuf called Asiyah, and Asiyah itself is broken down into 10 Sefirot and those 10 Sefirot can be formed into 5 partzufim.  We are looking at drawing #9. Rabbi Vital in point 1 says, in order to rectify the Malkhut of the 10 general Sefirot, you have to break that Malkhut down into 10 Sefirot and 5 partzufim and you have to rectify the Nefesh of each of the 5 partzufim.  What are we saying, we are going to break down the Malkhut into 10 Sefirot and 5 partzufim and then each of the 5 partzufim has its own subset of partzufim, can you see that?  You have to rectify the Nefesh of each of the partzufim which is a subset of the subset.

 

            I am getting myself all confused here,  just a minute, let me get this straight, the Malkhut of the 10 general is broken down into Asiyah, Asiyah is broken down into 5 partzufim and each of those partzufim has a subset of partzufim underneath it and we must rectify the Nok, which is the partzuf of the Nefesh of each of those 5 partzufim which are subsets of each of the partzuf, partzufim of Asiyah. Everybody all right?  That means there are 5 Noks, 5 Nefesh, and we have to rectify these 5 Nefesh in order to rectify the Malkhut. I am going to have to put this on the board for you, because I am getting myself all confused. Let us just hold this, and we will go to the next drawing.

 

            Drawing #11, I am showing you the second possibility of the second uncertainty and this is what point #5 says, to make it very simple, he in this instance or in this possibility, instead of just taking the, now on this board, this is the 5 partzufim of Asiyah, and what we did on the first possibility of the 2nd uncertainty was we just took the Nok or the Nukvah of each of the 5 partzufim of Asiyah, but according to point 5, he takes each of the partzufim of Asiyah and breaks it down into another 5 partzufim and then he takes the Nok of each of those 5 partzufim, but I cannot even, I am so confused with this, the bottom line is that we line up with 25 Nukvahs, or Noks.  He took the 5 partzufim of Asiyah, and he broke each of those partzufim down into 5 partzufim, and each of those 5 partzufim has a Nok or a Nukvah.  In the first possibility we have 5 Nukvahs or 5 Noks that have to be rectified in order to attain to Asiyah, and then the second possibility we have 25 Noks or Nukvahs that have to be rectified. Now in this case, well you may recall that in the 1st uncertainty of neither the translator nor Rabbi Vital gave us the explanation but the Lord gave me the reconciliation  that gave us the understanding that both possibilities were feasible, in this instance, once again, neither Rabbi Vital or the translator reconciles the two possibilities, and I do not have any answer for you, you know as to why under one circumstance only 5 Nukvahs would have to be rectified and why in another circumstance, we would go so much deeper, and have 25 Nukvahs rectified, this exercise is really stretched my mind, and I do not have any revelation on it for you, as I told you it was here in the teaching, so I decided to give it to you.

 

             Now as I have told you before, Rabbi Vital's literary technique is that he gives you the most difficult teaching first, and if you survive it, then the rest gets easier.  This for me has been very difficult bringing it forth for you, and I do not even see the value of it because unless the Lord give it to me, I do not even see the point of it, the point of it is beyond my ability to understand at this moment.  We are going to end for tonight and at the next meeting, we are going to deal with a 3rd point of section 4 of chapter 1, that is the parenthetical phrase.

 

            I decided to get the information for that parenthetical phrase, it is really talking about material that is in chapters 4 and 5 I think, and I will, I do not know how deeply I will go into it, but we will talk about the content of point 3 which has to do with what they call a double gilgul or a double ibur, it has to do with more than one soul incarnating in one body, which I found the subject just fascinating.  We will take, Lord willing we are going to deal with that, it is just so interesting and the possibilities you know are just so interesting, maybe this is the answer to multiple personalities, you know.

 

            Up until now, as far as I know the psychiatric community believes that multiple personalities really is the fragmentation of a single soul. Well maybe that is not the problem, maybe there is more than one soul in that body, so it is going to be very interesting, and we have gotten past the difficult part and Lord willing we will move forward on Sunday morning. Any questions? God bless you.
