Clarity, Continuity Of Thought, And Punctuation By
The CCK Transcribing & Editing Team.
We are doing this message as an, it will stand by itself as a very informative message, but we are doing it basically as an addendum to our series on reincarnation, I guess not really an addendum, an addendum is something that you do after a series is finished. But there is information of Kabbalistic concerning Kabbalistic principles that have not really dealt with, with the students here that you will need in order to understand the future messages in the series of reincarnation. So we are going to deal with those issues, basically Pregnancy, Suckling And Childhood, these are all Kabbalistic concepts and they are dealing with the three stages of the Christ as that Christ matures in you. I have decided to go back a little further than necessary, I make this message a standalone message as well as a message that will assist you to understand the teaching on reincarnation. Therefore we will be starting with a brief, well a brief understanding and exhortation on the ten Sefirot and the five worlds, etc, etc.
And we are working from notes from a Kabbalistic writer, so I may not be making very many comments, although who knows what is going to come out of me on the ten Sefirot and the five worlds. Hopefully you are familiar with those concepts, but I will comment on the notes of the writer as the Lord leads me, however the main focus of this message for the people, for the students of this school are the aspects that have not yet been taught, such as the seven palaces, I have never addressed that, and these three aspects of the development of the Christ within you. I remind you all that the Lord has told us and I have taught here quite a while ago that we are all pregnant women, whether you are a physical male or a physical female who is carrying the Christ child, if Christ has been grafted to you, you whether you are a physical man or a physical woman, or a physical male I should say, or physical woman, you are a pregnant woman from the viewpoint of the Lord, well I hope if you are a man listening to this message, I hope that you know that all of humanity is female in relation to the Lord Jesus Christ, and in relation to the Christ that indwells us. The physical person is female, is the wife of the indwelling Christ or the wife of the seed of Christ that is grafted to you.
So therefore all human beings who have received the seed of Christ are pregnant women. We are also called midwives in the Scripture. I know of no Scripture on the surface aspect of the Scripture, I know nothing in the King James translation or its sister translations that would indicate that human beings who have received the seed of Christ are pregnant, but there is a spiritual concept that I am speaking about is addressed in the King James translation if you have the spiritual eyes and ears to recognize it, and that concept is the concept of midwives. We are told concerning the Hebrew children who are captive in Egypt that the midwives were commanded to destroy every male child that came forth. I would not argue with anybody as to whether or not this actually happened in the natural, I do not know for sure, but it is my opinion that this concept of captivity in slavery Egypt did not manifest in the natural in the way it is perceived by the whole world. There was a time when I thought that certain Scriptures just did not play out in the natural.
Today I understand that every Scripture and every thought that arises from the unconscious plane must go all the way through until it manifests in the natural. The whole issue is that it does not always manifest in the natural as our understanding would expect it to. So this concept of persecution and destruction and the death of the male children, of the Hebrew slaves in Egypt, yes it had to manifest in the natural, but my personal opinion at this time is that it did not happen the way the world sees it. Praise the Lord. If you are listening to this message or reading the transcript of this message, the chances that Christ is grafted to you are very great, because people who have not had this experience are not usually attracted to the material coming forth, at least these advanced materials that are in Kabbalah that are coming forth from Living Epistles Ministries or from Christ centered Kabbalah whichever direction you have found us from okay.
The definition of Christ centered Kabbalah is the Hebrew Kabbalah woven together with the doctrine of Christ, it is called Christ centered Kabbalah, praise the Lord. Okay, so as I said, we are going to, I have decided to make this message a complete standalone message, what does that mean? If I was just going to give you the material that you needed to understand the more difficult, or not even more difficult, if the material in the study on reincarnation that is coming up, as we continue with that study, in order for you to understand it, I have to give you the foundational principles such as the pregnancy, suckling, and childhood, and the seven palaces, and there may be some other mind, and also there are several Partzufim that I have not discussed, I have discussed with you and taught and have on tape, the five basic Partzufim, but there are subpartzufim, I did mention it to you for example, the Keter, well I am not going to get into that now, there are more than five Partzufim, okay so we are going to go into the aspect of the subpartzufim or the Partzufim that are not considered the main five Partzufim of the ten Sefirot, and I could do a message on just that, which would be a supplementary not an addendum but a supplementary message to the study on reincarnation.
But I have decided after looking at the material that we will be working from to go all the way back to the information on the Sefirot, therefore making the information that I give you on this message complete enough to be what I call a standalone message, not a message of a series, okay, anyone who, there may be people who may want to just study this message and not have anything to do with the reincarnation series. So we are starting in our notes with what is for us or what should be for us, a review of the ten Sefirot. Praise the Lord.
The aspect of God's light that beamed back into the primordial void, differentiated itself through a series of filters, sort of spiritual transformers that enabled God's light to descend from its origins outside of creation to the very center of the void, which by now by definition is the farthest point from the surrounding field of God's ultimate essence.
Well if I am going to make this a complete stand alone, I am going to have to put that on the board for you. Drawing #1, I have shown you the undifferentiated infinite simple light of the Ayn Sof. The Ayn Sof which is God, that is the Hebrew name for God is endless, he has no boarders, therefore the only place that a creation could be formed is in the midst of him because it is impossible to get beyond his borders. So we exist, all of the creation, the universes exist within the Ayn Sof as a fetus exists within a pregnant woman, and this is the esoteric understanding of Acts 17:28 which says, In him we live and move and have our being. I remember years ago asking the Lord, what could this possibly mean, and at the time I knew there was a God you know, but I could not comprehend it, and now it just seems so simple. Everything that is known to man and things unknown exist in the midst of the true infinity. I say the true infinity because there is a false infinity.
Does anybody know what the false infinity is? The false infinity is the infinity of this world, the Serpent is the false infinity. As far as the beings of this world are concerned, the Serpent is infinite, the universe is infinite, you will read in papers by scientists that the universe is infinite, it is expanding infinitely. Although the scientists will tell you that the universe is designed to self-destruct in like three or four ten trillion years, which is still considered infinite because the time at which will self-destruct is so far in the future, the universe is still considered infinite, but this infinite universe is within a greater infinity. This infinite universe, the immortality of this age, and there is an immortality in the Serpent, one can attain to immortality in the Serpent, but that immortality will come to an end when the infinity or the immortality of the Lord Jesus Christ closes down this age. The infinity or the immortality of the Lord Jesus Christ will never end because there is no greater power to shut it down. Praise the Lord, and let me remind you that each human being is a world. This empty space exists in each one of us. It is true that our universe exists as a whole in the midst of the Ayn Sof, but everything that we are studying here and that is being revealed to us here about creation is happening in the midst of us.
We are the, the empty space is in the midst of us. We are empty vessels see. It is hard to comprehend, it is so incredible that this message exists on the whole and it exists not only with relation to each human being, I believe it exists on the cellular level, that every cell in our being is an empty space or an empty vessel, that when the Lord Jesus Christ fills us so that we are no longer empty vessels, we are not going to be filled as food fills our stomach, but we are going to be filled in every single cell of our physical and spiritual being. Praise the Lord, okay, any questions on this? Let us go back to our notes, I am starting at the beginning, the aspect of God's light that beamed back into the primordial void, well I am not going to teach this all over again, so I will just tell you simply that when this empty space was opened up in the midst of the Ayn Sof, it was emptied out of all of the light of God, in order to form the empty space, and once the border was formed, an aspect of the light of the Ayn Sof streamed back into the empty space, and this is all true of us. Adam was completely filled with the light of God, he was then emptied out because of sin, and we are Adam, we are his descendants, we are Adam in this present form, and the light of God in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ, his very desire is of pouring back into us. But this empty vessel has a mind of its own and is very resistant to the infilling of the light of God. Praise the Lord, so the aspect of God like that beamed back into the primordial void, differentiated itself through a series of filters, sort of spiritual transformers that enabled God's light to descend from its origins outside of creation or outside of the void to the very center of the void, which now by definition is the farthest point from the surrounding fields of God's ultimate essence, the center of this empty void right here is the farthest point away from God's ultimate essence. Take a picture of this and I will put that on the board for you. This is drawing #2, and I have shown you the center point, the principle here you may recall is that from a center point in the midst of himself, the Ayn Sof expanded outward equally in all directions. So the center point of the creation is the farthest point from God's essence, God's essence is outside the border of the circle and the center point of the circle is the farthest point from God's essence on all sides, on all sides. Okay, and the light of the Ayn Sof, or a stream of light of the Ayn Sof entered into the void and they were created in the entranceway okay, in this pathway that was into the void, were created ten filters, because if the full strength of the light poured into the void, it probably would have been so powerful that the void would have filled in, you see at the intensity of the light was this coming into the void was the same as the intensity of the light outside of the void, the circle on which creation, the circle in which the worlds were to be formed would have ceased to exist.
So the light had to be weaker on the inside of the circle than on the outside of the circle to maintain the circle or to maintain the empty space in which creation would be formed. So in order to prevent the empty space from ceasing to exist, the Ayn Sof created a series of filters and as the light passed from the Ayn Sof into the empty space, the light had to pass through these filters and each time the light passed through another filter, the light became weaker or degraded, the light became degraded. And those of us who are keeping up on all of the messages know that the aspect of the light, that ultimately passed through the tenth filter and filled the void, is called darkness, or is called the Serpent. The initial aspect of light in the empty space is darkness, that is where the Serpent was there from the beginning, the Serpent was there before Adam and Eve was ever there. Adam and Eve, if there was an Eve okay, Adam entered into the Serpent's territory as Adam was formed and created and began to function and manifest in creation, Adam walked into you might say a jungle filled with deadly enemies, but he did not walk in alone, he was warned and he was prepared intellectually as to how to deal with the Serpent. But when it came to the actual test, he forgot everything that he had been taught, but that is another message.
But what is really interesting on drawing #2 is the way I have drawn the ten Sefirot, did anybody notice that I have drawn them differently, did you notice that I have drawn them differently, I never drew them like that before, why did I do that? The Lord told me to do it. When I first started to draw in the ten Sefirot you may recall I started to draw them in and then I had to erase it, why? Because I initially started to draw the ten Sefirot in a series or in a straight line, in a series of demarcations, one directly under the other, forming a straight line. This is how the Kabbalists teach it, but the Lord has told us that, that is not true, you see, that the ten Sefirot were always left, right, and center, from the very beginning. So when I started to draw the ten Sefirot in three columns in this aspect, actually, this column, it looks like a column I have drawn entering into the void, what it is called is the Sefirot of straightness as opposed to the Sefirot of the circles.
So as I started to draw the ten Sefirot in the area where the Sefirot of straightness appear, and I started to obey the Lord who reminded me to draw them in three columns, I said, Lord how am I going to show the demarcation of each Sefirot if they are in three columns, how can I draw the line that will show, see with Tiferet, the line goes from all the way from the left side of the column to the right side of the column, but with these others how was I to do it, and as you look at the drawings, this is how the Lord told me to do it, but I am amazed because as I look at this drawing, what does that look like to you, does anybody recognize what this configuration looks like to you? Have you seen anything like this in creation anywhere? You know what it looks like to me? It looks like the stem of a palm tree or the trunk of a palm tree, and the palm tree is supposed to signify the Lord, is that not interesting? The palm tree of life, that is funny I have always said the tree of life was an olive tree, maybe it was a palm tree, well it has to be an olive tree because of the oil which is the life giving substance, but I do not know what an olive tree looks like, does anyone know what the trunk of an olive tree looks like? I do not know, but that looks like the trunk of a palm tree to me, how very interesting. Okay, so this is the principle, this light outside of the empty space had to be degraded, it had to be weakened, because if it poured into the empty space in its full strength, if the light was in the empty space was of equal intensity to the light outside of the empty space, the empty space would have ceased to exist. Now does that sound familiar to you? Is that not the same issue that we dealt with when we studied the world of bound lights, and the light or the force pouring into the vessels.
You see, the problems that have confronted the Lord concerning creation exists on every level, and here we are today with human vessels and the Lord Jesus having the responsibility of filling us with the light, and if he fills us with light that is too powerful, we will go puff, and we will cease to exist, the empty space which we are will cease to exist, therefore the Lord is pouring his light into us in degrees. Our mind could not bear the full essence of what he intends to give us, being imparted to us once, we would go insane and maybe even die but definitely insane, we could not bear it. So the light of the Ayn Sof is degraded in order to have a different level of light within the empty space and a different and a weaker level of light within the empty space then the light of the Ayn Sof outside of the empty space, and that is the whole purpose for the creation of the ten Sefirot. The ten Sefirot are filters which degrade the light as it passes through them, and Malkhut is the lowest Sefirot you may recall. Malkhut is the Sefirot that is within, well the lower degrees, I really do not want to get too technical with this because I just cannot, okay. There are ten Sefirot within Malkhut and then ten Sefirot and all subsets of Sefirot, this world that we are in is pretty much as low as you can get, and there are degrees right within this world, okay. Are there any questions about this? Yes.
COMMENT: When you said palm, you know that anagram how you twist it around, am I saying the right word? You said palm, and the word came to me lamp, lamp unto my feet.
PASTOR VITALE: Oh, okay, xxxx has a powerful mind that creates not anagrams, when you switch all the letters around they get a different word, it is an anagram. That is wonderful. My mind cannot do that at this time anyway, my mind cannot do that. But of course creating anagrams out of existing words is a very powerful Kabbalistic tool which I believe my mind will at some point must become capable of as I ascend in Christ, because the Kabbalist do that, it is incredible to see what they do.
They twist together, they will turn around the letters of the words, or they will integrate one word with another, like if you have the word cat and dog, they will be able to spell it, Cdao, and they actually get revelation out of it, and it is these techniques that they use to manifest spiritual power. Personally, I do not think we are going to be called to do that, I could be mistaken, but I believe that all of these techniques, the gemetria and all of the mathematics involved with the Hebrew letters, they are all points of contact by which these Kabbalists acquire and manifest the power of God, but I do not believe that is necessary if Christ Jesus is dwelling in us, and I hope I am not wrong, that is my opinion at this time.
Okay, I did not intend to be long winded but it seems like it is impossible and if I cannot pick up any speed, this is not going to be a simple message, it is going to have several parts to it. The aspect of God's light that beamed back into the primordial void differentiated itself through a series of filters, sort of spiritual transformers that enable God's light to descend from its origins outside of creation to the very center of the void which now by definition is the farthest point from the surrounding field of God's ultimate essence. These spiritual transformers, speaking about the Sefirot, that God chose so as to filter his light into creation became the spiritual DNA pattern upon which all creation is based. This filters or the filters that form this pattern are called or these, I am sorry there is a mistake in the text here, these filters that form this pattern are called Sefirot. Now it is being told to us here is that the Sefirot can be called spiritual cells, just like we have trillions of cells in our body and we have organs that are made up of masses of cells, and each organ has subsets of cells. These ten Sefirot exists at infinitum. Keter for example has ten Sefirot within it, and then the Keter of the Keter has ten Sefirot within it, and then the Keter of the Keter of the Keter has ten Sefirot within it, it goes on at infinitum, and all of these subsets of the Sefirot can be called the spiritual cells of the creation.
So this writer calls them the spiritual DNA because it is all of these multiple subsets of the Sefirot grouped together in different configurations that form the systems of the spiritual world that ultimately form this physical world. Praise the Lord, the Sefirot are the major Kabbalistic symbol used throughout all Jewish literature, Kabbalistic and otherwise, it is necessary that before one embark on a course of study in Kabbalah that one learn the essentials about the interactions of the Sefirot. Yet prior to this, one must learn what a Sefirah is, where it comes from and how it does and does not operate. When God began to cause his light to shine within the primordial void, he did not allow his light to enter in the same intensity that the light was on the outside. Such intensity of light would have immediately filled the void nullifying its creation, and now I just explained that to you what that means.
The amount of light that God allowed to penetrate within the void is therefore only a small portion of the brilliance of his absolute essence. I believe we covered all of that. God's primordial light contained within it many varying aspects. Within God's ultimate essence all of these aspects were completely merged together as one. Well let me just comment on that, let me remind you of the teaching here that God's light as a light of the Ayn Sof, the Ayn Sof is God, it is a simple light, a simple undifferentiated light, and it is from this understanding that we understand the coming into existence, and I want to say the creation, well the Lord says he created evil, the creation is evil, the creation is evil emanates from the degradation of the light of the Ayn Sof.
Everything that exists in the universe came out of the Ayn Sof because there is nothing but the Ayn Sof, he is all there is, and the Ayn Sof is a simple light, there is no variation in it, it is not more intense in one place and less intense in another place, it is a simple consistent light, no gradations in it at all, yet there are many attributes potentially within the Ayn Sof, they exist potentially, what does that mean? When you degrade the light of the Ayn Sof, all of his attributes which are nullified out here, because they are nullified because they are so completely homogenized and merged together that they for all intents and purposes they do not exist, but when the light is nullified, just like when you put white light into a prism, it breaks down into all the colors when you degrade the light of the Ayn Sof, all of his potential or all of its potential come into existence, and of those potentials we find good and evil.
Evil is one of the potentials that exists in the Ayn Sof, but in the Ayn Sof evil is so completely integrated homogenized, woven together, broken down and spread out, and joined to all of the other elements of the Ayn Sof that you cannot even say that evil exists because you cannot recognize it, it cannot be found, you cannot see it, neither can see good in the Ayn Sof, because he is completely consistent in every aspect, yet within him are all of these potentials when his light is degraded everything that had been homogenized and that is my word in the Ayn Sof, into the Ayn Sof, into the light of the Ayn Sof, is revealed. It is like taking a cake batter and turning it back into butter and flour and salt, and whatever else you have in your cake batter. Praise the Lord.
When God began to cause his light to shine within the primordial void, he did not allow his light to enter in the same intensity that the light was on the outside. Such intensity of light would have immediately filled the void nullifying its creation. We have explained that. The amount of light that God allowed to penetrate within the void is therefore only a small portion of the brilliance of his absolute essence. God's primordial light contained within it many varying aspects, I just explained that to you. Within God's ultimate essence, all of these aspects were completely merged together as one, I like to use the word homogenized. That helps me to understand it.
With the creation of the void each of these aspects of God's ultimate light would now be able to manifest their unique manifestations. The absolute unity is never lost or compromised. God's ultimate essence can be compared, well let me stop there, the absolute unity is never lost or compromised. I do not really understand what the Kabbalist mean when they say that, because it seems to me that, and God is going to have to explain that to me if they are accurate because as I just told you, this is how evil was created. Evil is a potential completely merged into the Ayn Sof, and evil appeared in the world as the light in the void as the light of the Ayn Sof that entered into the void was degraded evil appeared. So it is possible that I do not understand this that absolute unity is never lost or compromised. With the creation of the void, each of these aspects of God's ultimate light would now be able to manifest a unique manifestation, the absolute unity is never lost or compromised, I do not see how but of course the Kabbalist at this point have no recognition of evil at this point.
My understanding of Kabbalistic doctrine is that evil did not enter into the world until, at least until the seduction of Adam and the Kabbalists claim that the seduction of Adam and I believe this, took place on a lower plane of consciousness.
Remember that as the creation came into existence, the light that was forming the creation descended from level to level, creation is taking place in the world of Atzilut, but from the world of Atzilut, elements of the creation descended and formed the world of Beriah which is the world of creation, and then elements of the world of creation descended and formed the world of formation and these are how the worlds were formed. So the Kabbalists believe that evil did not enter into the world anywhere in the world of emanation which is Atzilut. The Adam, now not Adam Kadmon now, but the man Adam that we see at the end of Genesis 1, the man who is male and female that was given dominion over all the earth, he existed in the world of creation, not in the world of Atzilut. Ze'ir Anpin is in Atzilut, Adam is in Beriah. The world of Atzilut which is the world of emanation is a part of the Ayn Sof that is the body of Adam Kadmon. The world of Beriah is corruptible, Atzilut is incorruptible, the world of Beriah, the worlds of Beriah formation and Asiyah are Adam Kadmon's clothing, and Adam Kadmon can be separated from his clothing if the clothing becomes moth eaten, but Adam Kadmon is not separated from his body, Adam Kadmon remains whole above. So the Kabbalists will tell you that the Adam who fell was the Adam who was in Beriah, a lower Adam, see, but Christ centered Kabbalah is saying, evil existed at the very beginning and I remind you that there is a difference between evil and evil deeds. This concept called evil which is a grade of light, or the potential for evil which is a grade of light exists in the Ayn Sof, but not evil deeds, you see. The intention of the Ayn Sof as his light degraded was that his light were degraded to good and evil, and that the evil would be controlled by the good that was in the light. But the good failed to control the evil and the creation turned inside out and died. So therefore I am inclined to disagree with the Kabbalists recognizing that I am coming from a different view than they are coming from, unless the Lord corrects me I am going to have to say that I disagree with this, that the absolute unity is never lost. The absolute unity was definitely lost, and that is what we call the fall, and it was lost in a high place. Praise the Lord.
The absolute unity was lost, if I am not mistaken in the world of points which is still in Atzilut, the world of points is still in Atzilut. Now according to the Kabbalists this is not possible when the corruption occurred in a very high place, in the lower grades of Atzilut. Praise the Lord. God's ultimate essence can be compared to a black light, the color black contains within it all colors and possibilities of colors, is not that exciting, all possibilities of colors, colors that as far as we are concerned do not exist. Can anybody imagine a color that does not exist? No we do not have that creative ability, but apparently there are colors that exist potentially that we do not see in this world, and let me remind you that colors signify grades of light or grades of vibration. When you read about colors in the Scripture in the Zohar, it is talking about different levels of light, we got different grades of light, and how do you distinguish one grade of light from another? You distinguish one grade of light from another by the rate with which it vibrates, and this has been proven by our by the scientists of this world. They will have light vibrate at a particular speed and a certain color appears, light vibrating at different speeds, light produces different colors.
So the reason the Ayn Sof, the light of the Ayn Sof is called black, is that it has potentials in it that are beyond our ability to understand. White light I think is pretty understood by our scientists, but black light is white light plus everything else that we do not even comprehend, it is beyond our ability, it is beyond out intellect to comprehend it. So this is just another way of saying that they have to be, that you have to be careful you see, if you say to yourself, well the Ayn Sof is light, and I know about light, I read my science books, I know you put white light through a prism and you get all the colors and I have a lot of information about light, therefore I must understand the Ayn Sof. Well that is a naivety, you see. So therefore the Kabbalists say no, there is a difference between the light of this world which is called white light and the light that is beyond this world which contains, which is called black light and contains the white light of this world plus everything else that we are incapable of comprehending. And in fact if you are an artist, you would know that if you take all of the colors of your paint and mix them all together, you get black, is that not right? You ultimately get black, all color is lost in the black, you do not get white you see, you get black, very interesting is it not? Praise the Lord.
Okay, so we are told that the black light, the color black contains within it all colors and possibilities of color. Although these are not clearly seen within the black itself, yet when the light is subject to filters, then its various shades and hues are able to be individually identified. All of these shades and hues as different as they are from one another, are still united and one in their essence, all of these shades and hues are still united and one in their essence.
Again I wait upon the Lord to correct me if I am wrong, but I do not see that, you know what that sounds like to me? That sounds like to me like the occult teaching and many areas the Kabbalistic teaching is the same as in the occult, that everything in this world is one. See, I had a spiritual person once taking Tai Chi lessons he was my teacher, and he was pretty well versed in occult philosophy and he said, I think I said something to him, indicating that everything is not one. Brethren everything in this world is not one. Jesus Christ is not woven together in a homogeneous form with the light of this world, you see. I believe that everything of this world is one, spiritually speaking, we are a tapestry, Kabbalah says we are a tapestry and all of the colors of the world are woven into the image that we see in this world, and you may see a tree over there and a human being over there, but the bottom line is that we are all woven into the same tapestry.
Now when you weave a tapestry, you start out with a foundational piece of mesh, and then you weave the color into it. So we are all woven, according to the world, and the Kabbalistic and occult doctrine, everything in this world, everything is a picture that is woven into an existing foundational frame of mesh, therefore we are all connected, and that is true with the exception of the Lord Jesus Christ. See, the Lord Jesus Christ is not captured by the foundational principles of this world. And it seems to be a big secret that very few people a very few of if any of the spiritual peoples of the world can understand, they cannot, only the people that understand Christ can understand this. It seems that even the Kabbalists believe that, that everything is one. So I was corrected by my Tai Chi teacher, I did not say anything to him, what am I going to argue with my teacher? You should not do that. I did not say anything to him, but everything is not one in this world, everything was one until Jehovah appeared to Moses on Mount Sinai, well even that is not, well maybe I guess I would say that was where it happened, but I may be mistaken about that, I have to take that back, everything was one until the Lord appeared to Abraham, the change came with Abraham.
The Lord Jesus Christ is not bound to the foundational mesh of the tapestry that is this creation. There is a free radical in the creation, he is not subject to the laws of this creation, he cannot be destroyed, if he is cut loose, because he is not even a part of the foundation of this world, he has his own foundation, and he is a dangerous threat to the foundation of this world, who is the Serpent, who knows very well that her very existence is in danger because of the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ in this world. You see the savior has entered into the matrix, see, and he is not bound to it, he can exist without it, he is totally independent of anything that this world could offer him, and he is dead bent set on cutting loose all of humanity from that mesh that we are bound to that we are woven into, Hallelujah, glory to God. So, yet when the light is subject to filters, then its various shades and hues are able to be individually identified. All of these shades and hues as different as they are from one another, are still united and one in their essence says our teacher of Kabbalistic principles, Christ centered Kabbalah agrees only to the exclusion of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Also as with color there is differentiation between one color and another, there are demarcated borders, boundaries and definitions. Unlike God's ultimate essence wherein which there is no such thing as border or boundary, that is talking about the Ayn Sof now. Here within the void, demarcation and separation is the chosen manner through which God is able to manifest himself through the creation which he creates. In other words, there has to be an aspect within the Ayn Sof that is separated that is different from himself in order for there to be a creation, and this is so interesting because I keep telling you, everything that we study in these deep Kabbalistic principles is happening to us as human beings, and one of the things I have been trying to press home to you is that your Christ mind must separate or your carnal mind must separate, your Christ mind and your carnal mind must separate. Christ will never be able to function within you if he does not separate from your carnal mind and the only way he will separate is with your agreement, and you will never agree if you do not understand these principles, that is why you are in school. The Christ mind and the carnal mind initially are bound together like Siamese twins. Christ will never function in his role, he will never be able to impart immortality to you and everything that proceeds it and goes after that impartation of immortality if he is still bound to the carnal mind, he must be circumcised, the carnal mind must be circumcised away from Christ, this is the circumcision of the Christ child within you. The foreskin the klipot must be circumcised on the eighth day.
I am not sure what that means at this time, but the physical ritual of circumcision with a newborn baby boy is on the eighth day. So there must be a spiritual eighth day upon which the Christ will be liberated from this covering, separation. Praise the Lord. So, these boundaries, let me back up a little, there are demarcated borders and boundaries and definitions, unlike God's ultimate essence wherein which there is no such thing as border or boundary here within the void, demarcation and separation is the chosen manner through which God is able to manifest himself through the creation which he creates, brethren we are the demarcation, the vessels which we are separate God from you, from God in me. God is so great that he needs trillions or I do not know how many I am going to say trillions of human vessels to manifest all of his glory within the creation.
You see, Christ is Christ wherever he is appearing, but he is doing one thing through you and he is doing something else through me, nevertheless, there will always be harmony as many instruments in a great orchestra. If two people are truly manifesting Christ there should be no conflict, yet we may be doing very different things, because each one of us is an aspect of this glorious tremendous being that is so great it is beyond our human ability to comprehend it. We just have the slightest little aspect of his life, we could be the most creative person known to humanity and we just have a glimmer of the glory of God. But there should never be any conflict if both parties are truly in Christ, as soon as there is conflict at least one party is not in Christ, possibly two but at least one. It is not of God, conflict is not of God, it is never of God. Praise the Lord. So demarcation is the chosen manner through which God is able to manifest himself through the creation which he creates.
The ultimate light of God's essence therefore goes through a phase of filters, the purpose of which is to defuse the light and to allow it to manifest all of its varying hues, and all of these varying hues are manifested through the human beings or through the human vessels of humanity. Humanity which is at each other's throats and has been, the members of humanity have been at each other's throats since the event of the tower of Babel. We are in a very unnatural condition, we are in an unnatural condition, humanity is supposed to be, the members of humanity are supposed to be in harmony with each other. The whole world is at each other's throat because of a judgment of God. Why did this judgment come into existence? Because when humanity was in harmony, when all the members of humanity were in harmony, what did they start to do? They started to use witchcraft to attain to the power of God that was lost at the time of the fall.
And the Lord must have made a decision, he said wow, they are really going to do this thing. When all of humanity is of one mind and one accord, they are going to manifest a level of spiritual power that could be very disastrous. At the very least it would destroy the creation that God is trying to build, and at the very most, they could manifest a disaster that we cannot comprehend, because we do not know what exists beyond us. We do not know if there were other worlds that could have been destroyed, I do not know, but at the very least, humanity would have self-destructed. Praise the Lord. And of course the Lord wanted them to return to the power of God, but they were returning to the power of God without repentance. Humanity at the tower of Babel would, they were doing something that God wanted for them, to return to their first estate, but they were ascending in the wrong channel because there was no repentance. Praise the Lord. These boundaries and demarcations of the light are called Sefirot, so we are the boundaries and demarcation of the light, we are the Sefirot, we are the sub, sub, sub, sub, sub, sub, sub, sub, sub, sub, subdivisions, sub, sub, sub, sub, subdivisions of the Sefirot, at the very bottom of the pile, the Sefirot have become human vessels in animal form. We are the Sefirot. Coming from the root word, Sephar, which means to count, numbers are primordial form of demarcation and separation.
What is one is not two nor is it three, yet the relationship and unity between the numbers can never be broken. The word Sephar is related to the word Mispar, which means number and to the word Sefer which means book. As the Sefer Yetzirah teaches, the Sefer Yetzirah is a book of how to attain to spiritual power in Kabbalistic terms. As the Sefer Yetzirah teaches, God created his universe with three Sefarim, with Sefer, Sapar, and Sippur, these are the differentiation of God's light within their vessels, the Sefirot. So just to review here, it comes from the root word Sephar which means count, numbers are the primordial form, the word Sephar, well I do not have it here, I have never been able to get that straight, I am sorry, it means book, okay yes, the Lord just reminded me, thank you, what I just read to you in that paragraph is saying this, the Lord created the creation with a book, he has his book, he has a reader of the book, he just told me and slipped right out of my mind here, the book, someone who reads the book, and I believe someone who acts out the book, but I may have that backwards, I am sorry about that. Sefer, Sapar, and Sippur, the book, the story, and the manifestation of the story.
Praise the Lord. Now this concept here that the boundaries are called Sefirot coming from the root word which means to count. See when David counted, when David numbered the men of Israel, what he was doing, he was raising up spiritual power in the men of Israel for his own selfish purposes. Did you ever ask yourself what was this great crime that David numbered the men of Israel? Well the surface teaching is that he prepared the men of Israel for war, but so what? Did you ever ask how come, so what? What really happened was that David brought together the spiritual power of all of the men of Israel to avenge his own personal situation. At the moment I do not remember what the surrounding circumstances were at the time that David did that, but and we did a study on David, and I have no problem sitting here telling you that David did that, he gathered together, he accumulated the spiritual power of all of the men of Israel for the purpose of destruction, for the purpose of warfare, for his own personal purposes, and that was his great crime.
We are not to fight, we are not to pray against anybody, we are not to fight unless the Lord has told us to do it. We are to forgive, we are to suffer the loss, we are to be harmless as doves, we are to yield, unless the Lord tells us to pray, in any form of warfare, praise the Lord. Remember God is one and his name is one, well what does that mean, God is one and his name is one? Well I am just going to make this brief, the name of God is God in the creation, the name of God is the expression of God in the creation. So the name, God and his name are one, the father and the son, they are one, God outside of the creation and God inside of the creation, it is the same God in a different form, it is the same God in a different form, that is what he is talking about here. God and his name are one, God and his son are one. The glorified Jesus Christ and Christ Jesus in you or in me are one. Christ in the individual is the glorified God in a different form, and you are to honor him in the same way that you honor the Lord Jesus Christ.
Now you do not worship a mortal man, this is how Jesus was able to receive worship in the days of his flesh, the glorified Elijah was in the man Jesus, and the man Jesus' mortality was so completely crippled that it was not manifesting at all, therefore the only thing that was revealed through the man Jesus was the glorified Elijah, therefore the man Jesus was nothing more than a container that contained the glory of Elijah. Jesus received worship. Praise the Lord. The Sefirot are only tools of God, they have no life or holiness of their own other than what God gives them. Now is that not what I have told you is true of us? This is true of the personality. We have no life or holiness of our own, we are chameleons, we only exists as we are filled with and agree with the life of the spirit, yet the Lord Jesus Christ fills us and expresses himself through us, we attain to the holiness of the presence within us. If we are manifestations of Satan and Leviathan, which the whole world is, every baby that is born of a woman is a manifestation of the Serpent in the form of Satan and Leviathan, okay.
So we have no holiness or individuality of our own, we are either an expression of the Serpent or an expression of the Lord Jesus Christ. Now what confuses people is that the Serpent is good and evil. The Serpent is not like a snake outside your door, she is a powerful spiritual being, and she is manifesting herself in this hour through trillions of human beings, the Serpent has different aspects, some human beings manifest her evil and some human beings manifest her goodness. The Serpent is a supernatural being. The Sefirot therefore manifests to us how God chooses to act in his universe. Through the Sefirot and their interactions can we come and see God who is concealed within us. So what is this saying, through the Sefirot, and through our, and we are the Sefirot, and our interactions with each other, we come and see God. It is revealed who we are by the way we deal with each other, and is that not what Jesus said, How can you love God when you cannot even love your fellow man? If you are a manifestation of God, you will love your fellow man and you will love God, but the human race is fallen, you see.
Praise the Lord. See this is what Jesus was telling the Pharisees when he called them serpents, see we are trying, we in this ministry who are studying Kabbalah and weaving it together with the doctrine of Christ, we are trying to get an understanding of the mind of the Jew in preparation for the time when we ascend to minister to them. The day is coming that there will be a dialogue with Jewish Rabbis. See, I have already had a dialogue with a Jewish man who was not very well versed, he did not have much knowledge, he was just an average man, but the day is coming that we will dialogue with very educated Kabbalists, and this is the major problem, or one of the major problems that the Jews have, they do not, they think that they are already God, see that is why Jesus called them serpents, he said, Look, I am not insulting you, I want to give you what you think you are.
I want you to be manifestations of God, I want to give that to you. I say that to you here all the time, but you cannot receive what Jesus has for you if you will not admit what you are before he gives you what he has for you. So you have to admit that you are serpents, now you have to admit that you are sinners, that you sin every second of every minute of every day from the unconscious place of your mind.
If you think that you do not sin, then all you have is the potential for sin, you are saying the same thing that the Pharisee is saying, you are a sinner, I am a sinner, and Jesus has come to make us holy, but if you think that you have already got it, you cannot get it, because if you think that you have already got it, when Jesus comes to give you the real thing, you think the real thing is the false thing. Listen if you think that you are okay already, that all you have is the potential to sin and you do not sin, when Jesus comes to make you holy, one who does not sin, you will see his gift as a danger to you, because it will be, his gift will be the opposite of what you are now, and if you already think that you do not sin, that which he has given you, the ability to stop sinning, you will see as an enemy.
This is why you must repent to receive the gifts of God, it is not a religious work that the Lord is saying to you, you must repent and if you do not repent, I am not going to give you what I have for you if you do not repent. No, if you do not repent you will not be able to receive what the Lord has for you. Praise the Lord. There is one point about Sefirot that must be understood if one ever wishes to truly understand their nature. The order of their manifestations and interactions is twofold. As they emanate from God's ultimate essence, which is the Ayn Sof, the Sefirot descend into the void in the form of concentric spheres. That means spheres one inside of the other. This form implies that their order is exclusively hierarchal, that means one is higher than the other and that as the Sefirot descend, each descend, each lower Sefirot is weaker than the one above it, or has less authority than the one above it.
While this is true, the Sefirot also interact with one another in the form of multidimensional columns, which transform the Sefirot into polarities of active passive and balance. Well first of all we are still looking at drawing #2, well maybe I should do a drawing #3, let us do a drawing #3. Drawing #3, I would just like to share with you what the Lord has shown me that this is a palm tree in the midst of the garden, the empty space okay, is a wilderness until the palm tree appears in it. Now remember we are the empty space, when Christ Jesus appears in us, when Christ appears in us, we become a garden, and we know that in the Song Of Solomon there is talk about her beloved coming into her garden, that is the account of the Spirit of God coming into the believer, and the greater the maturity of the palm tree in the midst of us, the more a prolific garden we are, where we are supposed to produce spices and all of the delicious fruits or manifestations of the fruit of the life of God, and when those fruits are produced in us, they are supposed to flow out of us, and what happens is that even though the fruit of Christ is appearing in us, sometimes there, the manifestations cannot get past our carnal mind, so our carnal mind has to be crushed, so that all of the glory of God can flow out of us, see.
Now you may recall earlier on this message, I said to the Lord, or I said to you, but everything I say is to the Lord, how could that be a palm tree in the garden? He has already told us, or at least I believe he has told us that the tree of life is an olive tree, I said, could the tree of life be a palm tree, and I said, No, it has to be an olive tree, because there is always this talk about oil olive in the Scripture, but as I was sitting here the Lord reminded me first of all, there is such a thing as palm oil, you know, it is not considered a very healthy oil, it is a I cannot recall the word that is used, but it is not a healthy oil, it is not a hydrogenated oil, does anybody know the right word? It is an oil that is not good for you, it will build cholesterol in you, in this fallen world, remember everything is backwards. So palm oil is very healthy for you in the spiritual world, but in this physical world it is not a healthy thing, then I said to the Lord, well what do I tell the people about the Scripture being filled with oil olive, and olive oil is very healthy for you, and palm oil is not healthy for you. The Lord said to me, the olive oil is the gift of God to the people in the fallen world. The palm oil is in the world beyond this, is in the eternal world, so the palm tree is the tree in the garden, in the immortal garden, there is a higher garden of Eden, and a lower garden of Eden. We are in the lower garden of Eden, so the life of God is represented to us as the olive tree. But in the true immortality or from the beginning the tree in the garden is a palm tree, is that not exciting? These little tidbits make me so happy, praise the Lord. Any questions or comments about this? Okay.
COMMENT: You said the Sefirah is in the straightness, you said also all the ad infinitum.
PASTOR VITALE: All of the infinite Sefirot? Yes, well the Sefirot of straightness all exists in the straightness. That is going to be my next drawing? Somebody else have something?
COMMENT: It is very interesting that you said palm tree, palm tree is one tree that can never be knocked down, and the roots go down as deep as it is tall underneath, it can go all the way this way it would come up again.
PASTOR VITALE: Really, I did not know that, thank you. See this is a picture of a royal palm, because there are many varieties of palm trees, and this royal palm, the royal palm goes very tall and is all trunk and at the very top of the trunk is just a little bush of leaves, but the tree is almost all trunk. So I see it, that little bush at the top is, may even be the Keter itself because the Keter is the crown, that little bush of leaves, crowns that whole very tall trunk, is that not interesting? Did you want to say something?
COMMENT: I was just thinking that the palm tree produce coconuts which produce milk, the milk of the word.
PASTOR VITALE: Do all palm trees produce coconuts, is that true, I thought there was a coconut tree, it is the palm tree that produces coconuts? Okay. I do not think all palm trees produce coconuts and I do not even know, does anybody know? Okay we have just been told that the coconut does not grow on the palm tree, the coconut grows on the coconut tree, but the principle that was behind that word of knowledge is correct, that there is food coming from the palm tree, the fruit of the palm tree is eaten by very few people we are told, it is used mostly to be pressed into palm oil. What occurred to me as we were looking at all these drawings that there are several Scriptures, mostly in the Old Testament, but one or so in the New Testament that talks about a man sitting under his tree. It was Nathaniel that Jesus said, I saw you sitting under the fig tree. Do you believe that I saw you sitting under the fig tree? And if you could believe that, I have much more to tell you. I could never understand that. The reason I just went inside to look up the Scripture is because as I was looking at this board, the thought came to me that this tree that is in the garden or this tree that is in the empty space which we are okay, we sit under this tree.
Every man sits under a tree. Now it is either the tree of life or you are sitting under the green tree under which you offer up idolatrous sacrifices. So this whole concept that we hear about in the Scripture of sitting under a tree or offering up an idolatrous sacrifice under every green tree, we now have an understanding of what that means. There is a spiritual tree that exists in every empty space, in every human being. And everything that you do, you do under the cover of the tree that lives in your garden. So when Jesus said to Nathaniel, I saw you under the fig tree. What that means is, well it was not really the man Jesus speaking to Nathaniel, it was Elijah, the glorified Elijah speaking to Nathaniel, saying that I saw you because, well just a minute that is not coming out right, let me try again, this was the glorified Elijah who Elijah is the savior of Israel, that means Elijah's spirit was in all the people of Israel.
So Elijah was the tree that was in Israel, the spirit of Elijah in every man that honored God in Israel had the tree of life in his empty space, and that glorified spirit Elijah which was in the man Jesus said to Nathaniel, I know that you are one of the human beings that were under me, I know who you are. I know that when you pray to the God of Israel, you prayed through me, I was the spirit that was in your heart when you prayed to the God of Israel, and I know all of my sheep, Jesus said, I know everyone that honestly and sincerely prays to me, that is what the spirit of Elijah in the man Jesus was saying to Nathaniel, I my spirit, I am the tree that was within you, that is within you. You are all looking at me, you do not get this? The tree that was in Jesus was the spirit of Elijah. Now we all, you should know if you study here that the spirit of Elijah incarnated in two places, incarnated in John the Baptist and in Jesus of Nazareth. So Jesus was saying, the tree known as Elijah, Elijah representing the tree of life, do you understand what I am saying? You are looking at me so strangely, what, do you all understand that there is a spirit, that the tree of life is a spirit? Christ Jesus is the tree of life in you, if Christ Jesus is in you, he is the tree of life. Can you understand that? Okay.
So before Christ Jesus appeared, the tree of life came in the form of Elijah, Elijah was the tree of life to Israel. Elijah is the savior of Israel, okay. So Elijah was in Jesus, the tree of life that existed in Jesus was the spirit of Elijah, and that same spirit of life which is the spirit of Elijah was in Nathaniel. So Jesus said to Nathaniel, I am getting this revelation as I preach, oh wow, this is exciting, Jesus said to Nathaniel, I know that you have the true spirit. Let me change the words so you can understand what I am saying, this is a major issue in the church today, and it is a major issue that I do not know to what degree you understand it, but I have been trying to teach you for a long time, only Christ can recognize Christ, it is impossible to tell the difference between the Holy Spirit and the good side of Satan's spirit. You must look for Christ in a man, and how do you recognize Christ in a man? Only Christ in you will recognize Christ in another man. It is impossible for the Holy Spirit or for the carnal mind to recognize Christ in another man.
So if you want to be able to recognize Christ in a man, you have got to ask the Lord to give you that ability, either you have an imputed ability to recognize, cause you all years ago recognized the Christ in me and I do not believe that Christ was in you at that time. So the Holy Spirit must have influenced you to recognize the Christ in me, okay. But by in large, so that would be an imputed Christ came on you to recognize the Christ in me. But only Christ in one man whether it be imputed or imparted, only Christ in one man can recognize Christ in another man. Do you understand? And that is what Jesus was saying to Nathaniel. Jesus was saying, now I am changing the words so you can understand me, Jesus was saying to him, Nathaniel, I have Christ in me and because I have Christ in me, I recognize that Christ is in you, I saw you under the fig tree, we are both sitting under the same tree. We are both sitting under the spirit of Elijah, the savior of Israel.
I have been asking the Lord that question, I have a lot of questions that have not been answered, I have questions I asked years ago, I probably could not put them down on paper right now, but I have to ask the Lord a lot of questions, that I did not get the answer to, because I was incapable of understanding it at that time. So every time you read in the Scripture that there is some kind of activity going on under a tree, whether it is idolatrous sacrifice or whether it is recognition of someone who is sitting under the tree, or someone sits down under a tree, it means they are communing with the God in the midst of them, the tree in you is the savior in the midst of you. So it could either be Christ Jesus in you or it could be Leviathan in you, depends on what tree lives in you, see. Now we all have both trees, if you have Christ, we all have two trees in us, so depending on what you’re manifesting, it will be revealed what tree you are sitting under.
You see, now you may have the two trees in you, you may have the tree of knowledge of good and evil and the tree of Christ in you, but you can only be sitting under one tree, you see. So Jesus said, you are sitting under the same tree that I am sitting under. I know you because I am there with you, you cannot see me, but I can see you, and I know we are sitting under the same tree. Is that not interesting? Thank you, Jesus. This is good stuff tonight brethren. It is amazing what God could do, when I decided to go all the way back to the study of the Sefirot in this message, my carnal mind said to me, well it is old stuff, but review it again. It is amazing how God can take quote old stuff we have studied this so many times, and just make it so creative and so new and so wonderful. So this is a beautiful spirit of revelation tonight, does everybody understand that we human beings, we are the garden?
If Christ is not in you, you are a wilderness, you are a garden that is not cultivated. If Christ is in you, you are a cultivated garden and there is a tree in your garden, and his name is Christ, and you could sit under the tree that you were born with, which is your carnal mind, which is the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, or you could move over and sit under the tree which is Christ. Now the fig tree signifies Israel okay, the tree that we have, I do not know whether Christ, I think that Christ is the olive tree if I am not mistaken, he is the manifestation of God to us in this fallen world. So Christ Jesus is the olive tree. So you have an olive tree in you, you could be sitting under Satan's tree, not it would be the Serpent's tree, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, or you could be sitting under the olive tree which is Christ Jesus in you. Now you have to move over, and you move over in your mind, it has to do with the way you think, see.
Now if you have not yet found the strength to move over from the I do not know what kind of a tree, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil is, but it must be a tree that produces evil fruit at the moment I do not know what tree that is, if you do not have the strength to move over to sit under the olive tree, the second best thing that you could do is to be sitting under someone else's olive tree, and by submission to this ministry and by submission to the Christ in me, you are sitting under my olive tree, you see. If you are willing to take the correction when I tell you that what you just said is your carnal mind and your thinking is wrong, if you are willing to submit to that, you move under my olive tree. Eventually though, you will have your own olive tree, eventually. The olive tree that is in me will be reproduced in you and in the same strength that it is in me and Christ Jesus will put the tree of the knowledge of good and evil under him. But until that day comes, you are in a good place if you are under a ministry that the Lord has placed you under where Christ is flowing.
Unfortunately there are not too many ministries like that today, it is hard to believe we may the only one, but it is a possibility, I do not know of any other ministry like this, but others may exist. Other ministries that are in Christ may exist, not with this degree of revelation, but the Christ may be there. So we all have to be sitting under a tree, you see. What I went inside to look up was Jonah, I thought that Jonah had sat down under a tree, but he did not, he sat down under a gourd, and that is a whole different story. We will never finish this message if I go into that now. So let us look at drawing #4, and I have just drawn the empty space with the Sefirot to show you the circular aspect of the Sefirot, and the straight aspect of the Sefirot. Please note that there are only ten Sefirot, each of which has a circular and a straight aspect, there are not twenty Sefirot, there are not ten Sefirot of straightness and ten Sefirot of circles, okay. There are only ten Sefirot each of which has both a straight and a circular aspect.
However, in this fallen world, the circular aspects are set against, they have withdrawn, they have separated themselves from the one that they are a part of, and they have set themselves against the straight aspect as an enemy, thus this age is called the divided age. And the circular aspect has now become Kabbalistically speaking the other side or the enemy. But we are all one, we are supposed to be all one, but we are not. The world has become all one in the Serpent's image. And everyone that is in the Serpent's image is set against the Lord's Christ, and we see that happening to a large degree in our political structures today. Large parts of the world are set against the man who is manifesting the Christ. It is an incredible thing to behold. May the Lord strengthen him in the face of all of the hatred that is being spewed out at him for no reason other than that he is manifesting the strength and the righteousness of the Lord Jesus Christ. And people who are hurting themselves by hating him are hating him. It makes no sense at all. It is totally irrational. Okay, any questions or comments?
COMMENT: I have a comment I sing the song that says that we might be trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord that he might be glorified.
PASTOR VITALE: Amen, amen, Ezekiel does talk about the tree of life differentiating into many trees, and we have known for a long time that each of us is a tree. If we are in Christ we are a tree of righteousness, but this is seeing it on a much deeper level, that now we can see how we are a tree, that we are filled up with the tree of life or with the tree of life which is Christ Jesus, and we become that tree. This is the same thing as I told you at the very beginning of this message, from the time that Christ is grafted to you, the Lord sees all of you as Christ. The truth is that Christ is grafted to an animal, Christ is grafted to an animal nature, which is your carnal mind, and that Christ is grafted to the animal nature which dwells in an animal body, but yet the Lord Jesus sees all of you as the Christ, and he begins to work in your life to bring every aspect of your life into the image of that little seed that was grafted to you.
So your mind has to change and when your mind changes your behavior will change, and ultimately your body will change if there is disease in your body, it will change in direct proportion to the change of your mind. Your mind has to change. So that tiny little seed is going to bring that animal nature into submission, what an incredible awesome assignment, but it is doable. All things are possible in Christ, because that tiny little seed has the help of the glorified Jesus Christ, and from the minute you agree with him, you are undefeatable, he is undefeatable. The only thing that can destroy the Christ in you is you. If you are turning your back on him, whether in ignorance or otherwise, you are agreeing with your carnal mind rather than the Christ in you will destroy the Christ in you.
You are the only one who can kill your own child. Satan cannot kill the Christ child that is growing in you, unless you agree to it. And to say that you did not know what you were doing, you are forgiven, but your Christ child is dead, he is dead. So you have to pray to God to ask him to graft another seed to you, and that is Scriptural. We have someone associated with this ministry who is going through this right now. It is Scriptural to believe that the Lord could graft another seed to you because that is what the Lord did in Seth. Adam died and broke down into Cain and Abel, and then in due season, in the fullness of time, the Lord restored Adam to his first estate, but in that restoration he gave him a new name, Seth, cause every time there is a breakdown in a fall your name changes, and when there is a restoration your name changes.
So the Scripture is not going to say, well Adam was reborn actually when the Scripture says, And God gave, and the woman said, God has given me another seed you know, of course Adam was the female aspect of Adam, that was given another seed, he was given another chance, he became the seed of life again in the form of Seth, see. So if Christ has been grafted to you or if you have an imputed Christ, as this brother in our ministry, and you made mistakes and you did not know what you were doing, and you killed your child, God has forgiven you and you have every reason to hope that he will raise the dead to life again, as he did in Seth. You have every reason to hope that, do not stop praying for that, and it will happen to you. I cannot promise you, but you have every reason to hope that it will happen to you if you do not faint, it does not happen overnight. Just do not faint, you have every reason to hope that the Lord will restore you. Okay anybody else?
COMMENT: When you said before, let us give Keter back his bush, it made me think of Moses and the burning bush, but a Scripture has just been coming to me, cursed is anyone that hangs upon a tree, and I am thinking of Jesus cursing the fig tree, and what I am getting from that is that he cursed the works of the under the law of the Israelites, cause that could not bring them.
PASTOR VITALE: Right, the, Israel in the form that it was in when Jesus came into the world was not passing on into the spiritual phase, it was stuck, it was stuck in the first phase, because see, the Church today is in the same condition, they think there is nothing more to do except to die and go to heaven, so they are not looking to move on to the next phase of God, and that is the case with Israel even today, you know. They think that they have all they need and that they have reasons why they have not been restored to their first estate, and they just do not understand, with all of their knowledge, incredible as it is, they do not understand why they have not gone on to immortality, they do not understand that they are lacking something, they do not believe that they are lacking anything.
So Jesus cursed the fig tree that had produced no fruit, and he came to give Israel the fruit, but they rejected him. Praise the Lord, and as far as it is cursed to be hanging on a tree, that is interesting, I still do not know what that means, I still do not have a true spiritual understanding of that, but when you said that you thought of Keter as the burning bush, I think that is very interesting that perhaps that burning bush that appeared to Moses was in fact, well that is interesting because we are told that Binah is the fire, and Keter is the water, I am sorry, Chokhmah is the water, Binah is the fire, and Keter when he appears to a man appears through the lower Sefirot, so it could have been Keter, the bush appearing through Binah the fire. Now remember according to the Kabbalistic teachings, Binah is the highest Sefirot that appears to men. So if Keter was, if it was Keter's intention to appear to Moses, he would have appeared through Binah, which is the fire. So that was the combination.
So now we know who the burning bush is, what had happened is this, when Moses fled from his assignment, because the Lord never told him to flee from Egypt, when Moses fled from his assignment, he was separated from the upper triad. Who is the upper triad, the Keter, Chokhmah, and Binah. He separated himself from them, because disobedience separates you from God. So it was the Keter, it was the head of the upper triad that approached Moses in an effort to rejoin himself to Moses, and that is what happened. It was the upper triad of the Sefirot at, it is just another way of saying that Moses became Ze'ir Anpin and he lost his brains. You see that is the part of this teaching you know, this concept of the Mohin of Ze'ir Anpin receiving his brains, we will get to that eventually. It does not look like it is going to be tonight. Well maybe I do not know we will see. Ze'ir Anpin you may remember from other teachings is incomplete, he is born without his brains. See, so if you have Christ added to you, I do not know if I want to say that right now, I am not sure, I have not thought it through, but following through with this Kabbalistic concept, because I have been teaching you here that the seed of Christ that you receive has, okay, okay, the seed of Christ that we receive has everything that he needs potentially within him, but he has to receive his brains to activate it all, and the brains that Christ Jesus receives comes through his union with the glorified Jesus Christ.
So, Moses in his disobedience separated himself from the upper triad which were his brains. So the appearance of the burning bush to him was the Keter appearing through Binah and of course Chokhmah had to be there also seeking to rejoin himself. That is like saying, it is the Lord Jesus coming to rejoin himself to the Christ in you, and we know that, that happened. How do we know that that reunion or that yihud took place? Because the reason that we know that that happened is that Moses was restored to ministry. The Lord is amazing, you know. If he calls you to do something and you walk away from that call, he can come to you twenty years later and pick up just like it was yesterday.
People like Jonah, people that run away from the Lord, you cannot run away from the Lord, you can spend twenty, thirty, forty years of your life running away and the Lord will come back some day and just get you and you are going to do what he told you to do thirty years ago, so why did you waste thirty years? Because you are carnal, and all carnal people are fools. You just did not understand it. That happened to me. I did not understand it, I ran away from the call of the Lord at ten years old. I was starting to study Genesis in Hebrew at ten years old, and I walked away from that great opportunity for some very ungodly reason, and the Lord got back to me in my late thirties, and we just picked up where we left off.
But I could have avoided a lot of pain in this life if I had stayed with the Lord at ten years old, but I did not understand. My only, someone in my position, my only hope of being, of avoiding all of the pain that I experienced in my life because of that disobedience, my only hope was my parents, who could have said to me, you have to do it, but my parents did not understand either, see. Being parents is a very, very, very important role. So as parents, spiritual unprepared parents are a danger to their own children, you see. My parents did not know any better.
So we have to be all that we could be for our children, because we are the last line of defense against Satan for our children. See once your children come of age and you cannot force them anymore, you cannot force them anymore, if they are being disobedient, if they are being disobedient in an area that is important. See today in our society we are told, well you should not be forcing your religion on your children, you should not be forcing your religion on your five or ten or fifteen well ten year old children, even your fifteen year old children. Yes you can be forcing your religion on your fifteen year old children. You are there to educate them and to tell them what is right and wrong in all areas. When they become of age which is eighteen, in some states it is twenty one, they can do whatever they want, but you have discharged your duty. You see, if my parents had insisted I would have been studying Genesis in Hebrew for ten years before I was liberated, see. So it is just an unfortunate situation all around. But, my parents did send me to Hebrew school initially, so for parents who, it was really my mother who did it, for people who really did not know anything, my mother must have really heard from God, because I met the Lord in synagogue, I met the Lord, and the only reason I was in synagogue was because my mother had put me in Hebrew school, so I thank God for that. Okay, is there any more questions or comments on drawing #4? If not we will go on, do you have something to say?
COMMENT: Just getting back to that tree, I keep thinking about you know family trees, and generational curses of the father?
PASTOR VITALE: I do not understand what you are saying.
COMMENT: That cursed is every man who hangs on a tree, is it the curse of the fathers?
PASTOR VITALE: I do not know, I would like to know that myself, that is one of the questions that I have been asking for years. Be assured as soon as I find out I will share it with you. Okay xxxx, talking about the Sefirot now, as they emanate from God's ultimate essence, the Ayn Sof, that is God's ultimate essence, it is the Ayn Sof, they descend into the void in the form of concentric spheres, this form implies that their order is exclusively hierarchical. Well this is true, the Sefirot also interact with one another in the form of multi-dimensional columns which transform the Sefirot into polarities of active passive and balance, and of course the balance is the center column. It is this form of columns, and the active would be the left column and the passive would be the right column, I think, I hope that is correct. It is this form of columns that is the most popular form in which the Sefirot are presented today. When the Sefirot are in the form of columns, they are called the Sefirot of yosher, which means columns. When they are in the form of concentric spheres, they are the Sefirot of Agulim, meaning spheres.
Much of the beginning of Sefer etzchayyim, that is the tree of life which we studied here in message 531, is devoted to explain these two functions of Sefirotic interaction, the columns and the circles and they interact with each other. The holy Zohar and the majority of the writings of the Arizal, that is Isaac Luria, deal with the Sefirot from the view of yosher, that is columns. The view of Agulim is very sublime and profound and is best left for more advanced study in the original text. Now the doctrine of Christ is the study of the Agulim. The Agulim, I do not know what the Kabbalists teach about that, I have not read anything about it, but the Lord has told me that the doctrine of Christ that was brought here, that he brought forth here is the study of the circles, the Agulim.
The view of Agulim is very sublime and profound, I do not know that it is sublime and profound is that you have to be ready or prepared or willing to learn about evil, to study the Agulim because the Agulim is evil, I do not think that Kabbalists would agree with that, but that is what the Lord has told me, that is my understanding at this time. And then the writer says, I will then proceed to explain the Sefirotic interactions according to the yosher or the column order. Now, I want to tell you this first, let me put this on the board for you. Looking at drawing #5, I have drawn, I have divided the board into two parts, a and b, and I have shown you light waves, okay light waves move in vibration, that is why the lines are squiggly, and although I really did not want to go into any more detail, light waves have something called wave length, and that means you can measure the distance between the peaks and the waves. Is everybody following me? You measure the distance between the two peaks and the waves, because waves go up and down, okay.
Now I have not drawn them very well here, but light waves are consistent you know, the peaks, the distance between the peaks are consistent in any particular wave. Now these light waves are shown passing through a wall, or passing through a border, you know where the other side is open. In the case where the wave length, the difference between the two peaks can fit through the opening in the wall, the light wave passes through unchanged. But in side b of the board, in the instance where the wave length, the measurement of the distance between the peaks is greater than the hole in the wall. In order for the light to pass through, the light has to bend, it has to get smaller and elongated so that it could pass through the wall. And when that light appears on the other side of the wall, it has become a curve and that is a permanent change. The light on the other side of the wall stays in this curved formation, and that is basic physics. This is right out of a physics book that I am getting this, and I want to suggest to you that this is what happened in the empty space, and to be honest with you, it is absolutely boggling my mind that these great Kabbalists you know, part of being a Kabbalist is being a scientists, these men are incredibly educated in all of the sciences of the world as well as spiritual sciences and it is just amazing to me that they do not see this.
But what they are teaching, I believe the Lord has told me is not accurate, and if you can understand this, we will go to the next board, and I will contrast for you what the Lurianic Kabbalists teach and what the Lord has shown me, in so far as the circles inside of the void. I will make it clearer with the next drawing. Is everybody okay with this? Any questions about this? Drawing #6, I have divided the board into two parts and the right part of the board I have subdivided into five parts. The left side of the board is showing you the concept of Lurianic Kabbalah, or the Lurianic Kabbalah concept of how the Sefirot entered into the void and according to the several teachers that I have read this from, they all seem to agree that Lurianic Kabbalah says that the light emptied into an empty space and traveled along the inner border of the empty space and formed a circle flush to the border of the empty space.
Then more light came in and traced around a second circle until there were ten circles in the center of the void. I remind you that the carnal mind sees things exactly backwards. If you look at the right side of the board, you see that the empty space was empty except for the darkness that was in it, the low grade of light that is called darkness, and the light of the Ayn Sof entered into the void and started to, and bent, the light that entered into the void bent because the opening was smaller than the wave length, and that bent light formed a small circle right near the opening. But as each continuing light wave entered into the void, it pushed back all of the light waves that had entered before it. If you look at section d of drawing #6, I think that pretty much shows it that each subsequent light wave that entered into the void in a bent condition pushed all the other bent light waves further and further away from the opening until all of the light waves had become circles in the midst of the void. Can anybody not see that? I think this drawing is pretty clear.
So we see that Lurianic Kabbalah says the exact opposite, that the light wave came in and of its own choice just traveled around the border of the light wave. But Christ centered Kabbalah says, no, the light wave that entered into the void was bent because the opening was smaller than the wave length and each subsequent wave length pushed all the other wave lengths back until the first wave length that entered in wound up, wound up being pushed against the border of the void until it could not go any further. Can anybody not see that these are two completely opposite positions?
So the carnal mind sees things completely backwards, it is very interesting. Christ centered Kabbalah says that the empty space was filled with the degraded light of the Ayn Sof called darkness, and the waves of bent penetrating light pushed the darkness to the edge of the void. Each subsequent bent light wave joined itself to a wave of the darkness until all of the darkness was bound to the bent light wave in the form of a series of concentric circles, meaning one circle inside the other. The circular aspect of the Sefirot therefore are now good light wave and evil darkness. The good is in continuous danger of being overtaken by the evil because they are together, see. They are bound to each other until the Sefirot of straightness which is the savior enters the void and joins his righteousness to the good side of the circular aspect of the Sefirot, I am going to change that, and joins his righteousness to the goodness. Because see wherever you find good and evil, you find a struggle in which the evil can be overcome.
Righteousness cannot be overcome by evil. So goodness must be saved from its counterpart, the evil. I could say that another way, Abel must be saved, Abel the good one must be saved from Cain the evil that Abel is bound to, so Abel needs a savior, the goodness needs a savior. Every man born of a woman has both good and evil in him. There are evil people on this earth because in those vessels the evil has overtaken the good. But even when the evil has overtaken the good, the good still exists in the man, because good and evil is the foundation of mortal man. Therefore every man born of a woman can be saved when the righteousness enters in and joins itself to the goodness in that evil man. Praise the Lord.
Remember we are the Sefirot, we are good and evil, and it does not matter whether you are an evil, well, I keep having to correct this, it matters if you are an evil person because you reap what you sow and your children reap what they sow, but in the scheme of the plan of salvation, it does not matter whether you are good or evil because your savior, the righteousness of the straight Sefirot which is appearing to us as the Lord Jesus Christ today, is coming to join himself to your goodness. Now we have all kinds of people in the Church, we have all kinds of problems. So when the righteousness joined to the goodness of the people, they do not all progress at the same rate of speed. In a vessel where the evil is very prominent, it is going to take more work on the part of the righteousness to bring that vessel into a manifestation of the image of God. Is that not interesting? Any questions or comments? Okay.
This is drawing #7, and I have shown you the void with enough of the light waves of the Ayn Sof to have created seven, I am sorry ten circles, ten concentric circles that are actually they are concentric with the border of the void, and then we see the Sefirot of straightness coming in as the savior of the good and evil circular aspects of the Sefirot. Now I remind you that, well first of all this is a sea of energy, I have told you on and off for the last two years that we live and we exist in sea of energy and here we see the sea of energy, it is the light waves that came into the void and became the circular aspect of the Sefirot, that is the sea of energy that we live in, our whole body is a manifestation of energy or we would have no existence. Now the roots of the tree comes from the Shekinah. Now you could see the ten Sefirot of straightness and Malkhut is the lowest one, okay. Shekinah is the Malkhut of Atzilut, she is the Sefirot that manifests in the earth.
And the Shekinah, she has many subsets of Sefirot, and it is these subsets of Sefirot that come from Malkhut that enter into the void, and now remember each of us is a void, this is talking about us, about humans, and the roots of the tree, Malkhut is the root of the tree of life, or the roots of the tree of life emanate from her, and they cross, they interact with the circular Sefirot in a warp and woof relationship, and we see here that the roots of the tree crossing over the circular aspect of the Sefirot forms a warp and a woof aspect which is the, called the fabric of the creation. The circular Sefirot are the warp and the roots coming out from the Shekinah are the woof and we see the woven garment, because we are the garment of the Ayn Sof coming into existence. The woven fabric of creation made of energy, well it is all energy, but branch and root, and the energy is the branch of the tree, that is the circular aspect of the Sefirot, and the root is the Sefirot of straightness. I did not write that down, I do not know why, the roots of the tree of life emanate out from the Shekinah and intersect the circles of energy.
Now the shorter wave length, the shorter the wave length the higher the frequency. That means the shorter the wave length, the faster the wave moves. The initial light that entered into the void had a lower frequency than the latter light. The initial light that entered into the void was wider than the opening and therefore the waves bent. Remember this light was continuously coming into the void.
Then the next light or the next series of waves that came into the void were moving more rapidly and therefore they had a shorter wave length, so when they entered into the openings, they did not bend, they fitted through the opening. Now this is just another way of saying that the first wave of light that the Lord sends into you or into us is much will be much more slowly than the second wave of light.
You may recall, I know I have mentioned this to you over the years from time to time, that we are being speeded up as we as our mind is conditioned to comprehend these deep things, our mind is vibrating faster and faster, and creating heat. That is why sometimes when the anointing you get very hot, I get very hot when I manifest the anointing sometimes because the spirit in me revs up, it is moving faster and faster, it is vibrating faster and faster to bring forth this revelation. I am not necessarily speaking faster and faster but the spirit that is moving on me is vibrating faster and faster. God vibrates at such a high rate of speed that if we come in contact, if a mortal man comes in contact with God in that condition, we could die. That is what happened to Uzza when he tried to catch the ark, his intentions were good, the ark was falling, but God did not punish him because he touched the ark, the ark, the Spirit of God actually dwelt in that box, and there was such energy flowing from it that when Uzza touched it, it killed him.
So how in the world can we become vessels for the Spirit of God if it vibrates so rapidly that it is going to kill, it kills mortal flesh. The way God is doing it is by imparting his life to us little by little, and as we can tolerate what we have, he speeds up the vibration. That is why the first manifestation of the light into the void of fallen humanity is the Holy Spirit. The latter manifestation, well maybe I should even say the first manifestation is faith, but let us not get too technical here, the first light that enters into the human beings, is the Holy Spirit. The latter light is Christ, the man, Christ vibrates in a much more rapid rate of speed than the female. That is why most of the Church, I mean you people are incredible that you are sitting here with me through all of these hours of teaching, you have been chosen specifically called to be able to tolerate this because the average Christian cannot tolerate this today. They would be uncomfortable squirming in your seat, they would be running out of here.
Sometimes people hear what I have to say and they flee from me. Why? They could not tell you why, but the rapidity of the vibration that comes out of me when I speak of these high things causes discomfort to some people who are vibrating at a very low rate of speed. So I wanted to explain that to you. That is why the first waves that came through bent and became circles and the second series of waves that came through did not bend, they were vibrating more rapidly, so they came through straight. That is just another way of saying, first you hear the word as a parable, it is bent, right? The word has to be bent for you, because you cannot tolerate the straightness of the word. Jesus said I have much to tell you but you cannot bear it now, so I am going to bend the word for you so you can bear it. And he speeds us up little by little. We are called to be filled with the full power of almighty God, without it burning us alive, so it has to be done in stages or it would destroy us.
Did I read everything here? Yes, okay. Now this tree upside down tree that I drew over here, I did that because there are a lot of people or there are people in the Church, I have seen ministries that will show you the tree of life upside down in the void of creation, and that is how they perceive it to be, but when I had this image in my mind of the upside down tree in the void of creation, I said to the Lord sitting right here, If this is a correct image then the roots are outside of the void, can you see this? The roots would be outside of the void. So the Lord said to me, That is a wrong perception. I do not know how to draw the true perception but this is what the Lord told me, that the tree in the void is not linear, it is not up and down.
See, look at my point here and I do not know about you people that are hearing the tape, I do not know what to tell you, but all of you here, look at my pointer, the tree is not up and down, the tree is from top to bottom. 'So the branch is in the midst of the void and the root is in the midst of the void, but deeper into the void. Does anyone not know what I just said? You need me to say that again? Do you need me to say that again? Anybody? Do you understand what I said? Do you understand what I am saying that if this is a true perception that because the spiritual plane is opposite of the natural plane, the tree of life would be upside down in the void, do you understand that? And that if that is correct the roots of the tree would be outside of the void, do you understand that? And here we are teaching today that the roots of the tree are in the void. So either I am wrong on that or that image is wrong, okay. So the Lord told me this image is wrong because the tree does not lay across the void, does not in the void from the top to the bottom of this flat circle, this is not a circle, it is a sphere, it is a three dimensional sphere, and the tree is not laying on top of it, the tree is going into the midst of it as if you were going to a swimming pool, you dive down into the swimming pool, and your feet are at the bottom of the swimming pool and your head is at the top of the water. You are not lying flat on your back like you are floating in the swimming pool. So the tree in the midst of the void has its roots down at the depth of the void, the depth of our spiritual being and the branch of the tree is at the top of the water, just as if you are standing in that swimming pool.
So this perception of drawing the tree of life upside down with the roots outside of the void is not accurate. Do you understand what I said? Yes, yes, okay, everybody okay? Okay. We are going to read a few Scriptures and we are going to wrap it up for the night, I do with Scriptures when I see a truth revealed that I was not aware of, I now, or the Lord has now, not just me, but the Lord has given us an understanding of spiritual roots, there are a lot of Scriptures that talk about roots of trees, and I have not really been able to understand what they are saying, but with this image we see the tree in the midst of the void which is us. Now this whole, this judgment of being ripped up or plucked up root and branch means your death. You see, if the root is ripped out, if just your root is ripped out, that means that the Christ in you is ripped out, but the branch which is the energy of the creature still remains. So if your root is ripped up, you have died spiritually, but you still have existence because the energy is still in your vessel. But for the judgment that you will be plucked up root and branch means you die spiritually, and then you die physically, because if you have no energy you are dead physically.
So we now understand what that means that from that context. I want to take a look at these few Scriptures, so that we can have it on the record as to what the root, what the function of the root of the tree is. We all know what a tree is out there in the garden, but we do not really have, up until now, I did not really have this understanding of what the spiritual root is of how it gets into us, or what it is, the spiritual root grows out of the Shekinah which is the lowest level of the Sefirot of straightness. So if the Shekinah is in us, all of the higher Sefirot are in, well at least Ze'ir Anpin is in us. Well that is not true either, that is not true either, but if the Shekinah is in us and she is married, as she is supposed to be, okay, then the whole Godhead is in us. We can have the Shekinah and she can be unmarried, see, and then the Lord is working towards her marrying, and that is a whole other message, so I am not going to get into that right now, it is very late.
Okay, remember that you are going to communicate with the sound person before you start reading and please remember that you all have your Scriptures ready and I have to catch up, I have to turn to the right page after you finish. So please wait until I have the place before you start talking, okay. I am going to start with the first Scripture, Job 8:17.
COMMENT: Job 8:17, "His roots are wrapped about the heap and seeth the place of stones."
PASTOR VITALE: This of all the Scriptures that I have laid out is very exciting to me, his roots are wrapped around the heap, and what is the heap, I suggest to you that it is the heap of energy, it is the heap of energy or the mound of energy that is built up in the void, his roots are wrapped around that energy and that is exactly what we have drawn on the board for you, the interaction or the interweaving of the roots of the Sefirot of straightness or the roots of God okay, the interweaving of those roots with the energy of the creature. His roots are wrapped around the heap and seeth the place of stone. I looked up those words in the Interlinear text and what it is really saying is that from this position, from this interaction of the roots and the branch, the tree which is Adam Kadmon, he sees the stones meaning the seeds and he is, the exact word was, not that he was lusting for it, but that he was joyously looking forward to the maturation of the season to the visible creation that man is supposed to be. I did not write down the exact translation of the words, but that is the significance of the Scripture that the tree that is penetrated into the void, he sees all the seeds of his life and the potential of all of the beings that are to come forth in the image of God, and he receives great pleasure from that vision, that is the intention of the Scripture. Are there any questions or comments on that Scripture? Okay xxxx.
COMMENT: Joel 18:16, His roots shall be dried beneath and above shall his branch be cut off.
PASTOR VITALE: So here we talk about, this is the spiritual and then the physical death of the person. Now I did not really research these verses, the why is saying that the root is underneath and the branch is above, that is probably just a translation of the verses that are bringing it into the human concept of a tree, the branches on top and the root is underneath, exactly what the Interlinear Text says, I do not know, but we now know that whenever we hear this concept of root and branch being dried up, or plucked up, it means physical death. Now I believe it is in Jude that we read about twice dead and plucked up, are you familiar with that Scripture in Jude, twice dead and plucked up, that means you are dead because the root's plucked up, you are dead spiritually and you are dead physically because your branch is plucked up. That is what it means.
COMMENT: Job 28:9, He putteth forth his hand upon the rock, he overturneth the mountains by the roots.
PASTOR VITALE: As I said, I have not looked at the Interlinear Text with these verses, so I do not know what to say about it, he putteth his hand upon the rock, I am not sure where the rock comes into this, but he overturneth the mountains by the roots, these Sefirot, these circular Sefirot are mountains, okay, they are the highs and lows of the wavelength or the highs of the wavelengths are the mountains and these mountains are very powerful, but the roots that come down from Shekinah is strong enough to overthrow the mountains because when the Shekinah is fully, when the Shekinah is married to Ze'ir Anpin and Ze'ir Anpin has received his brains, okay, the roots are powerful enough to overthrow the, see this does not really mean that you are going to throw a mountain down, it is talking about overthrowing the strength, the spiritual strength of the mountain, and these mountains are the high places of the wave length of the circular Sefirot. Any comments or questions? Okay.
COMMENT: Isaiah11: 1, And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a branch shall grow out of his roots.
PASTOR VITALE: Now remember that this concept of Sefirot with the root and the branches talking about people, so there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, this is talking about the vessel that is Jesse and the branch, the energy of Jesse shall grow out of the root of the anointed one that is in Jesse. So what this is saying is that not just that Jesse is going to generate a human child but the energy shall grow out of, it shall come forth, that is the natural, that is the physical child, the energy coming forth, but the root that is going to come forth also is saying that the life of God will come forth in this child too. Did I make that clear, is everybody okay with that? Okay xxxx.
COMMENT: Jeremiah 17:8, "For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river and shall not see when he cometh but her leaves shall be green and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit."
PASTOR VITALE: Now remember this is talking about people, this is talking about human beings. For he shall be a tree planted by the waters, the human being that the person that is in this condition, that Christ Jesus is planted in them. Now that is not the Holy Spirit, and that is not the imputed Christ, this has to be a grafted Christ that is planted in you, this is a prophecy over your life. If Christ Jesus is planted in you, this is what you can expect. You shall be a tree planted by the waters, and the waters are the energy of your human life, and that tree shall spread out her roots by your river, you see, and this is the roots of the Shekinah entering into you and spreading out all through the energy of your spiritual being, and of course the suggestion is that she will be weaving herself together, this spreading out of the roots means she will be weaving herself together with the energy of your humanity, and that implies that she is going to be bringing the evil side of your humanity under subjection to herself.
This means it is a promise of the cessation of sin, you see. We cannot stop sinning, we are incapable of stopping sin, see. We need a stronger one to join with the goodness in us, to weave together with the evil and bind it up so completely that it cannot function. So her roots shall be spreadeth out by the river, and the river is, each one of us is a river, the whole creation together is the sea of creation, each one of us is a river, or the energy in each one of us is a river, and shall not see when heat cometh, and that is interesting because this whole concept of heat in the Scripture has to do with reproduction, when you read in Genesis 1:1, it talks about the day of heat, or the time of heat, it is the time of creation, the time of generation, and this says, she shall not see when the heat cometh.
As I said, I have not looked at this in the King James, but I would take that to mean that when the Serpent comes to bring forth her life in this individual, that this individual will not experience the heat of reproduction of the life of the Serpent.
But her leaf shall be green. Now we know from past studies that the leaf signifies the flesh body. So that makes sense you see, what this is saying, when the Serpent comes to generate her life in you, when the Serpent comes to have spiritual sexual intercourse with you to generate Satan or to regenerate Satan and Leviathan in you, it is not going to happen, and the result of that is your leaf will remain green, your physical body will not die, you see. And she shall not be careful, he shall not be careful in the year of drought, this individual that is in this condition will not have anything to worry about when, in the day of drought, when the judgment, well there has to be some kind of judgment comes upon the earth, I am not going to, I do not know so I am not going to spend any time on this, neither shall this individual cease from yielding fruit.
So the fruit of the tree is Christ Jesus and you will be, see I am yielding fruit tonight, Christ Jesus is in me every time I teach like this, this is been a night of marvelous revelation, I am bringing forth fruit this will never stop. Now when you come into this condition and any greater condition that is waiting for us, the fruit will continue to come forth, knowledge, wisdom, understanding, glory, miracles, everything that is the wisdom of God, and the miracles that arise out of the wisdom, not the miracles that arise out of the Holy Ghost, will not cease. Praise the Lord, I am not sure what the drought is. We know there is a famine coming, I am not going to waste any time on it. Okay any comments or questions on this? Praise the Lord.
COMMENT: Ezekiel 17:7, There was also another great eagle with great wings and many feathers and behold, this vine did bend her roots toward him, and shot forth her branches towards him, that he might water it by the furrows of her plantation.
PASTOR VITALE: And there was also another great eagle with great wings and many feathers, I am not sure what the feathers signify, but behold this vine did bend her roots towards him. I believe that, and shot forth her branches towards him. The branches are the energy of our humanity. I believe what this is talking about is that the human being will turn towards the indwelling Christ, because right now mankind is at enmity with the Christ, the church is at enmity with the Christ, brethren you and I, we are at enmity with the Christ, every time he speaks and we obey our carnal mind, we are the enemy of the living God, but the day will come that we will stop opposing the living God and the whole Church and the whole world will bend their branch towards him. They will desire and seek after his leadership. And we were talking about that off the tape this morning. As you turn your life over to God and ask him what he wants you to do in every little aspect of your life, you are bending your branch towards his roots. And that he might water it by the furrows of her plantation. This is all parable, so I am not going to say anything else about that verse, the reason I chose that verse was to show you that it is a prophecy that the aspect of the creation that is at enmity with God today, in the future will seek the leadership of the Lord, and the dead will live again.
COMMENT: Daniel 11:7, "But out of a branch of her roots shall one stand up in his estate, which shall come with an army and shall enter into the fortress of the king of the north, and shall deal against them and shall prevail."
PASTOR VITALE: So, when I first put this drawing on the board, I did not know the difference between the branches of the roots, that was confusing me. We know that the branch of the tree is the energy, but the Lord just told me that all of these lines that I drew coming out from Shekinah which are her roots, little branches or subroots come out from her roots, and that is what is being spoken about here. ...out of a branch of her roots, this is different than the branch of the tree, did anybody not understand what I just said? It is like a subdivision of Shekinah. Out of the subdivision of Shekinah shall one stand up in his estate, which shall come with an army and he shall enter into the fortress of the king of the north. Who is the king of the north? Leviathan, the king of the north. Satan is the prince of the power of the air. A king always has dominion over land. Satan is pure spirit, which Satan is the prince, the king is. Well it is very late. Okay, the king of the north is Leviathan and shall deal against them and shall prevail.
So the Christ that rises up out of the roots of the Shekinah will prevail over Leviathan, and this is talking about the individual, it is talking about the creation in general, but the individual specifically, any questions or comments on this verse? Okay.
COMMENT: Hosea 14:5, I will be as the dew unto Israel, he shall grow as the lily and cast forth his roots as Lebanon.
PASTOR VITALE: Well this is just another witness that the, it is the roots of the Lord that will bring healing to our troubled waters, okay.
COMMENT: Amos 2:9, Yet destroyed I the Amorite before them whose height was like the height of the cedars, and he was strong as the oaks, yet I destroyed his fruit from above and his roots from beneath.
PASTOR VITALE: This is talking about the ungodly tree. I honestly do not know whether to call it the Serpent or Leviathan, whose height was like the height of the cedars, that means his height was above the height of the wavelength of the mountains. It means he was ruling over, this was a male aspect of the Serpent that was ruling over the circular aspect of the Sefirot. He was very tall, and he was very strong, yet the Lord said, I was strong enough to destroy his fruit from above and his roots from beneath. So this again is someone who is twice dead. The root, or he died to his ungodliness, the root of the Serpent's tree was killed so the male aspect was ripped out, and the fruit from above, the mind was ripped out. Now this is only going to happen to the person in whom Christ is ready to take over their vessel so that they should live in the newness of his life. Is everybody okay with that? Any questions or comments with that? Okay one more, Mark 11:20.
COMMENT: Mark 11:20, And in the morning as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots.
PASTOR VITALE: Now of course this is after Jesus cursed the fig tree, okay. In the morning, the morning is the ascendancy of Christ in the individual, they saw that the fig tree, the early anointing, what we might call the Holy Ghost anointing in this dispensation, was dried up from the roots, okay. Now I have always read that Scripture believing it was a judgment that Israel was ripped up and cast out, but you know there is another way to look at it, you know I closed my Bible already. What did it say? Read that again, please.
COMMENT: And in the morning as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots.
PASTOR VITALE: Whenever you see the phrase in the morning, it talks about the ascendancy of Christ. So we were talking about this, I cannot remember whether it was on the tape or off the tape today, but when Christ arises in you, the manifestations of the Holy Ghost dry up, they dry up by their roots, you see. And because the man comes and swallows up the anointing of the female Holy Spirit, Christ Jesus is the man who comes and swallows up the anointing of the female Holy Spirit, so the tree, the tree of the partial anointing, because when the Holy Ghost comes, that is the influence of the spirit of God on your carnal man, and that is going to dry up and also we are told the gifts are passing away. So the Holy Ghost is going to dry up by its roots when the morning arises. Praise the Lord. And let me just say this, that is a long term prophecy for Israel, you see, because right now Israel has, the roots of God in Israel have dried up, the roots of the Shekinah, I mean you can ask any Jew and they will tell you the Shekinah left Israel, ask any Kabbalists, they will tell you they have lost the Shekinah, and they are waiting for the Shekinah to be restored to them.
Okay, so the roots of the Shekinah was dried up, but the Shekinah will not be restored to Israel in the same condition that it was in before it left, it is going to be restored in a greater condition, in a knowledge of the Messiah, Jesus Christ, who will have to convince them by some supernatural means, even I was thinking about Great Britain today, we talked about the almost death of the church in Great Britain, you see. What really happened there is something similar to what has happened in Russia. In Russia when the communists came in the power of the Russian Orthodox church was broken, and now Russia is open to the new move of the spirit, which is the Holy Ghost and then Christ. So in Great Britain the power of the Anglican Church was broken, and unfortunately, the people are in a poor condition right now, but when the Lord returns to them to give them their next chance, they are not going back to the Anglican church, they are coming to Pentecost, and eventually into discipleship, you see.
So, what happened to Israel is that, that tree, the roots of the tree which is the Shekinah has dried up, and what confuses people is that it has been two thousand years since it dried up, but you have to realize that some of these prophecies span thousands of years before they are fulfilled. But Israel will be grafted back into their tree okay, and they will see the morning rise, and they will understand, they will understand two thousand years of dried up roots, that it was unfortunately necessary because of the pride of man, to bring in the new move of God, and the same thing for Great Britain, and whatever is going to happen in Russia, the same thing, people will just not let go of the old ways, they just will not let go. And in a ministry like this where Christ Jesus is ministering understanding, all the people who have ears to hear, have the opportunity to move into the new move of God without going into some desperate condition of loss. That is their opportunity. Everyone that hears the voice of the son of God, and what is the Scripture?
Everyone that hears the voice of the son of God and I am going to say obey, but that is not what the Scripture is, and obeys, you will live again, you see. But if you cannot hear it, if you really cannot hear the understanding, then you are going to have to go through some experience that is going to make you let go of whatever manifestation of the Church is in your life right now. If you cannot let go of Pentecost something is going to have to happen to you to break you free of Pentecost, because the Lord wants to give you discipleship and you cannot let go. But everybody that can hear this word coming forth here from this ministry, you are going to have a better chance to let go than all the other people who are afraid to let go because they think it is Satan telling them to let go because they cannot imagine that there is anything greater in the flesh than they have right now. Well I just want to thank you for staying with me to this late hour, the Lord has not done this in a long time. I really did not have any choice. Sometimes I have a choice and I will ask you if you mind staying with me, but I knew the Lord wanted me to finish out this thought, so I thank you for being troopers and staying with me. Apparently this will be a part one, and we will just stay with this until we finish it, and then we will go back to the study in Reincarnation. God bless you all, goodnight.
