Praise the Lord, okay, I have a very interesting message for you, I just pray right now that the Lord helps me to bring it to pass, it is a deep revelation of the scapegoat, and I will start the message by making a statement to you and asking a question which I will not answer until we get through the message, which I will answer as go through the message.
The Old Testament talks about the scapegoat as the method for expiating the sins of Israel. Jesus the church tells us, was sacrificed for our sins but yet we are told He is the lamb that takes away the sins of the world. How do we get from scapegoat to lamb, and was Jesus the scapegoat, a goat is associated with ungodly power, okay, so what is the relationship between the scapegoat and the lamb that taketh away the sins of the world? This is a very interesting message, I hope it blesses you like it blesses me.
We will start out this, which I am sure is going to be a series, by looking at some of the comments on the scapegoat in the Zohar, actually I should read some of the Scriptures of the scapegoat that appear in the King James on to the tape first, I should really do that first.
Leviticus 16:8, “And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats--one lot for the LORD and the other lot for the scapegoat.”
10. “But the goat on which the lot fell to be the scapegoat shall be presented alive before the LORD, to make an atonement with him and to let him go as a scapegoat into the wilderness.”
Leviticus 16:26, “ And he that let go the goat as the scapegoat shall wash his clothes and bathe his flesh in water, and afterward come into the camp.”
Did anybody see a contradiction in those three Scriptures? Does anybody see a contradiction? I will give you a minute to see if you can find the contradiction.
COMMENT: In verse 8, Aaron cast lots upon two goats, but in verse 10 and 26 there was only one scapegoat that was let go.
PASTOR VITALE: Right, actually all three verses, 8, 10, and 26, use the word scapegoat singular, but verse 8 in addition to the word scapegoat, talks about two goats. This is one of the apparent contradictions, I use the word apparent because it is the sin of arrogant pride to think that the Scripture contradicts itself, or that God contradicts Himself, as soon as we humble ourselves and say, that does not make any sense, help me Lord to understand it, you get the answer, but if you think because you do not understand it, it is a contradiction, the Lord lets you stay in your sin, see, okay. We have an apparent contradiction here, but I want to suggest to you as we kick off this message, that Leviticus 16:8 is talking about the two goats, that there are two goats but only one of the two goats is a scapegoat, there are two goats, but only one the goats is a scapegoat, and the word “lot” that is used in this Scripture, can be translated “pebble”, and I immediately thought of Jesus telling Peter that he is not the rock, Peter, Jesus said to Peter, You are not the rock, you are the pebble, you are the little stone, okay.
What is a pebble, what is the significance of a pebble? It is a very small stone. I will not keep you in suspense any longer, I am going to suggest to you that there are two pebbles, there are two goats that are likened, or I am sorry there are two pebbles or two small spiritual entities that are analogous to lots, that is the way, the Scriptural is a parable here, and I am not saying that this did not happen in the natural, it did happen in the natural okay, but I wonder, I have to tell you that I wonder what the high priest did with this Scripture that says, there are two goats, but there is only one scapegoat, you know.
I just did a brief scan in my Bible software, and these are the only three verses that I found with regard to the word scapegoat, so I have not done an exhaustive study on the word goat, but I would have to believe that the priest were told by revelation when Israel was in right order, okay, with God, okay, that there were two goats, and that one goat is Cain and the other goat is Abel. You have to understand that this whole procedure of laying hands on the scapegoat and sending it off with the sins of Israel, it is all symbolic. When God gives you a commandment and says, Here this is the way of escape, lay hands on the scapegoat and send the scapegoat out, and I am going to forgive your sins, the forgiveness of sins is not from the laying, it is not that you receive something supernatural from this animal, it is that God honors His word, and forgives your sins because He did what He told you to do.
It is also the same issue with water baptism. A lot of preachers today do not think we should have water baptism, okay, but I think that we should, why? Because the Scripture says we should do it, I believe that the Scripture says we should do it, do you become a supernatural giant from being dunked under the water? No, but that is the first step in your walk with the Lord that is going to make you into a supernatural giant, at its ultimate expression.
The scapegoat is the one of the two goats that is sacrificed, and of Cain and Abel, which is the one that is sacrificed? Cain must be sacrificed because Cain is the evil one. Cain and Abel are the mortal remains of Adam who died. Both Cain and Abel are spiritually female and both Cain and Abel are goats because they are mortal, they are fallen, Christ is the lamb, you see, but Jehovah said, Abel, I give you authority over Cain. Abel was given imputed masculinity, imputed spiritual masculinity and therefore authority over Cain, why? Because Jehovah said so. As we all know, Cain went into a rage, Cain did not like it. The Lord appointed it, it is as simple as that.
The mystery that we are starting out with is that the scapegoat which took away the sin, which was the mechanism that took away the sins from Israel before Jesus Christ was sacrificed and became our sacrifice, that sacrifice of the scapegoat was the dealing with Cain and Abel in the individual, both of which are fallen aspects of mortal man. Cain and Abel in mortal man is called the Fiery Serpent, it is a great mystery, Cain and Abel are symbiotic twins, they are inseparable, but they can reverse and change position, either Cain is on top or Abel is on top, but Cain and Abel are inseparable and they are our mortal foundation which manifests as personality in the individual.
Probably as we go through these Scriptures we have a lot to do, definitely it will be a multi-part message, we are going to deal with various Scriptures from the Zohar and the Zohar commentary and you will hear the term serpent used. It is my understanding that this serpent, when we get to it okay, is talking about the Fiery Serpent, they are talking about what the doctrine of Christ has revealed to be Cain and Abel. When Cain is on top and Abel is buried under Cain’s ground so that all that you see is the personality of Cain, that symbiotic unity, or that symbiotic entity is called the Fiery Serpent.
As soon as Abel overthrows Cain and rises up on top of Cain, that same symbiotic entity is no longer called the Fiery Serpent, but now called actually Abel and Cain. We are not going to get into that technicality right now but everywhere in the Scripture Cain always comes first, Cain and Abel, why? Because Cain is on top of Abel, but when Abel goes on top of Cain, that is a mystery that Abel is going to rise from the dead and come out from underneath the ground and go on top of Cain, that is a mystery, so you do not see in the Scripture Abel and Cain, but we that know the mystery, we can say, Abel and Cain. What is the mystery of Abel and Cain? It is Christ, okay, when Abel is on top of Cain, the Fiery Serpent becomes Christ, that is the mystery, it is a different name, you see.
What the Lord is going to show us in this very exciting series, is the, how do I even explain this to you? What we are getting into now is the details, you know, of a lot of things that I have told you in the doctrine of Christ that I did not any deeper myself, I taught to you as the Lord told it to me, but now we are getting the breakdown, okay, the specific understanding of it, and when we get this breakdown of it, this breakdown will illuminate other Scriptures for us. I think what is basically, it was my understanding at this point, what do I know, okay, I do not know the mind of God, but at least my understanding at this point, is that the reason we are in this study brethren, is that going back to message 573 part 3, okay, this message right now, 574 part 1, and this whole message 574, is being preached after message 573 part 3, we may go back and have a 573 part 4, but if that happens, that we go back and preach message 573 part 4, 5, or 6, then this whole series, message 574, the scapegoat will be called a parenthetical message, it will appear, do you know what parentheses are, parentheses are in between, okay, this whole message 574, the scapegoat, will appear parenthetically in between message 573 part 3, and 573 part 4, there will be another whole series injected in the midst of it, and this will not be the first time we did this.
This also happened when we were preaching 570, which I believe was “Gate of Reincarnations, Chapter one”, and then we had a parenthetical series of message 572, “Pregnancy, Suckling, And Childhood”, and then we went back to the appropriate next part of message 570. This is the way the Lord is teaching here, very difficult. We are in college brethren, it is not easy to be here, but you see, all things are possible to those who truly seek God and have received permission from Him to pursue this course of study. If you have received permission from Him to open the gates of your mind to this course of study, He will give you what you need to follow along, you do not have to understand everything, you just need to understand enough to be satisfied, to be blessed and not cursed, or not hurt by being here, you know.
It is a very difficult course of study that the Lord has given us here, but it is very exciting for those of us who are standing up to the winds and the stormy seas that attack us continuously because of what is happening to us in Christ, you see those winds and those stormy seas, that is all coming from the Cain side of us, when Abel in us is given over to Christ, to the point that we have been given permission to study these big studies, the Cain side of us, because we are a double sided man, okay, the Cain side of us which is cahoots with Leviathan and Satan, bombs us continuously, why? Because the end of the pursuit of the studies in Christ, it is not just study okay, in order to receive permission to enter into these studies in Christ, you must judging your sin nature or the Lord will not let you into these studies, you see, you are locked out.
If you think that you are going to get it someplace else when you leave here, you are mistaken because the gate is in your mind, and when the Lord closes the door the door is closed, if you were sitting here, you would not understand it, you see.
The reason Cain and the rest of her family, Satan and Leviathan, are bombing you and storming you and me because we are pursuing these deep studies in Christ is because the combination of the deep studies of Christ and the judging of our sin nature which is Satan, Leviathan, and Cain, exposing their thought processes in our own mind and exposing the operation of their devices in our own life, flowing through our own personality will ultimately result in the destruction or the total breakdown of that whole other side of our personality, they will be put in the pit and become paralyzed and unable to manifest. They are fighting us with everything that they have to turn us away from the pursuit or from the lifestyle that will ultimately destroy them.
What do we have so far now? We know that there are two goats, involved in the expiation of sins in the Old Testament, and that one of those goats is a scapegoat which is Cain, and the other goat is taken by the Lord, okay. We will now go forward, and we are going to, I am going to comment on a variety of passages from the Zohar.
These are unrelated passages but they have to do with the scapegoat, we are going to do this just by way of trying to prepare you to receive the ultimate or the actual message that the Lord gave me to teach you, and that is the spiritual application of what it means to lay hands on the scapegoat, the spiritual application of it, and in addition to that, we are going to see how this application played out in our lives, and I have, well let me tell you this, so I can give you something to hold on to, something concrete to hold on to, I honestly do not know if I have this on a tape, because I tell the disciples here a lot of things that I never put on a tape, but I guess it is time to put this on a tape, I have known for years, that when I am in a spiritual battle, and brethren, if you have a weak stomach, you should not be reading these messages, or listening to these tapes, but this is the truth, Jesus said, I have much to tell you but you cannot bear it now. What did He mean you cannot bear it now? He meant that only the person who is rooted and grounded in Christ can bear these truths.
If you are not rooted and grounded in Christ, maybe this is not the place for you, but if you are rooted and grounded in Christ, here is the truth for you. Satan lives in men, the Holy Ghost is inside of us, Christ is inside of us, Satan is inside of us, Abel is inside of us, Cain is inside of us, Leviathan is inside of us, and the devil is the personality that is in agreement with their carnal mind, it is all in the flesh brethren, everything that is happening, this is the stage, the visible world that we are in, and in particular men, is the visible stage in which God plans are being played out, because right now part of God’s plan rose up in rebellion.
Some people will tell you, well that, that is not true, that everything is of God and everything was God’s intention, I am not going to get into that message right now, but I do not agree with it, however there was a rebellion in the midst of the construction of the creation, and the Lord is in the process of reconciling or bringing into right order, that aspect that has bulged out of place, okay, and the Lord just showed me a flash of a spinal column and the chiropractor just pushing that disk back into place.
All of the attacks that come upon us, whether we are serving God or not serving God, all of the attacks that come upon us, come upon us from either the mind of one person, or the collective mind of many people. There are no accidents brethren, every car wreck that you see, on the highway, negative collective forces have gathered together to bring that car accident to pass. In 9-11 there were people escaped that atrocity for no logical reason other than spiritual forces sent them in another direction on that day. Everything is flowing through the mind of man, all the negative forces are flowing through the minds of men, and all of the positive forces of Christ are flowing through the minds of men.
Right now, with very few exceptions, these forces are not consciously, are not directed by the conscious minds of man, except for those in witchcraft, but as far as the church goes, these forces are only minimally directed because of the lack of knowledge that the church has, okay.
Part of our inheritance in Christ, if full authority over the powers of nature and the powers of this world, full and complete authority over the powers present in this world, that is our inheritance, it is not streets of gold or a mansion in heaven, it is power and authority over the world that we live in, over our mind, over our bodies, over our families, authority for good, over our communities, and ultimately over the whole world.
This is how the government is on the shoulders of Jesus Christ, it is through the minds of the people that He is possessing. Back to my point, I have been telling you for many times that when, I have been telling you for quite a while, that on many occasions, I have been under an attack, and most of the time, if not, most of time, when I am under an attack, the people involved have no idea, the degree of the damage that they are doing, they just have no idea, concerning the damage that they are doing, they may be angry at me, they may be talking about me, but they have no idea that I am going through what I am going through, because I am spiritually ascended person, and when you are angry with me whether you face it or not, or if you are talking about me and you think nobody knows about it, that you are just discharging your energy because you are talking about me, of if you are repressing your anger towards me, I am in an all-out warfare over here, because I am an ascended person, that means I have a presence in a spiritual plane where Satan operates without restriction.
Satan may not operate in your life without restriction, you may a socialized person who would never steal, Satan could never make you steal, Satan could never make you commit adultery, Satan could never make you torture or hit somebody, see, why? Because you are controlling Satan’s ability to influence you, in these areas, you have said, No way, not a chance, I will not do it, and she goes away.
There are areas in the subconscious and unconscious part of your mind where you and, and I am not singling anyone out, this is people in general, I should say we, there are areas of the subconscious and unconscious part of the mind where mortal man and the members of the church, are mortal men, we are all mortal men, okay, where we do not deal with the imaginations of our unconscious and subconscious parts of our mind. What is an imagination? It is the beginning of a thought, an imagination is a thought that we have not agreed with.
Once we agree with an imagination, it becomes a thought, and it is ours, and we own it. An imagination is something that is created by Satan or is manufactured, created is the wrong word, manufacture or formed by Satan, she churns out all of these imaginations, hoping that on some level we will agree with them so that we can sin and she can accuse us and take our energy.
There is a spiritual realm, there is a spiritual place where Satan operates unrestrictedly, in the mind of every man on the face of the earth. You might say, Satan there is no way that I will murder, or that I will kill, there is no way you will even get close to my conscious mind. Satan says, Okay, and she is operating with murderous thoughts which Jesus tells us are called what? Murderous thoughts are called hatred, and the subconscious and unconscious parts of our mind where we lose our power to say, No way, I will not do it, we lose our power to do that because we will not face that we have thoughts of hatred in our mind, so we repress it, we put a wall up, and we say, Oh no, not me, that is a lie, and Satan operates unrestrained on those spiritual planes. Does anyone understand me?
I have a spiritual presence on those planes where Satan operates unrestrained, I am a spiritually ascended person, my eyes are opened, I have experiences, I interact on those planes twenty four hours a day, when I am sleeping, and when I am awake. You, whoever you are, this general you, whoever you are, you may think you have no ought against me, or that you have rejected any potential for ought against me, but you may have rejected it only as far as the conscious part of your mind and because you do not deal with, the operations of Satan, in the subconscious and unconscious parts of your mind, you are not restricting, forbidding, and punishing her on those realms, she is hating, which Jesus says is equal to murdering, the object of your anger, which for this particular conversation is me, in the spiritual realm that is associated with the unconscious part and the subconscious part of your mind, and I am in that world. I feel her wrath, I experience her wrath on a level that someone else who is not present in these spiritual planes, would experience it.
Everybody that you wrath for, whether you know it or not, experiences your wrath, you see, but depending on where you exists spiritually, different people that exist on different spiritual planes of consciousness will experience your wrath differently. The way the wrath of one person is manifested to another person depends on basically two basic categories, the strength of the wrath that is coming forth and the spiritual sensitivity or the spiritual availability or the spiritual vulnerability of the object of the wrath.
If I have a presence in the astral plane, Satan has the power to send a storm towards me, if I do not exist, if I do not have a presence in the astral plane, okay, she cannot send a spiritual storm at me because I am not spiritual. There might be some reaction to it, I will experience her wrath in some ways, or that wrath will be set aside until someone else is angry at me too and maybe over a period of years anger will form a collective ball and roll into me, or to whoever the object is, and what is the manifestation of an impact with a spiritual ball that represents many collective angers gathered together over a period of time? Illness, disease, car accidents, personal troubles, divorce, trouble in your home, trouble in your marriage, financial trouble.
I am telling you the truth brethren, okay, so back to my point, I have been telling you all here for years, that when I am under an attack, and it is very rare that people know what they are doing, because even if there is a Christian that is coming against me, they think they are right. I do not there think there are many people that get down on their knees and say, God curse Sheila, I do not believe that is happening, people are misguided, they are misguided and they are against me for the wrong reasons or they are angry at me because they do not understand the manifestation of Christ through me, that is when the attacks come, that is what I mean when I am under an attack, okay.
When I am under an attack and it is coming from somebody’s mind, I have a certain level, a certain measure and a certain level of spiritual strength to throw off that attack, I have a certain measure of spiritual power, just as if we were arm wrestling, that would turn down that person’s attack, okay, but if I find myself up against somebody that is stronger than I am, then the Lord has to come and help me. The Lord makes a judgment, if I am strong enough to take on this opponent, and I am required by my master the Lord Jesus Christ, to forgive the sins of these people and to not hurt them any more than necessary, but of course I have to, I cannot stand here and take the blows indefinitely, at least not at this time, Jesus did that for us, you see.
I do, do what Jesus did to the point that, I do not retaliate, but I have to pray something, at this point in my mortality to defend myself because we weaknesses have been in the area of infirmity, and it is more important to me to stay well to do the work of the Lord than to let myself be put to bed by somebody’s ungodly wrath, you see, so I am not Jesus, you see, Jesus was without sin, what that means is that no curse coming against Him could have hurt Him, see. He just took it all, as far as I know, He just took it all, He just forgave and forgave and forgave, you know, but in a case of those of us that are not yet in full stature, we have to somehow struggle and find a balance because the Lord, it does not glorify God for us to lay down and let somebody kill us, so we have to find that balance. Does anyone not know what I am talking about?
When somebody is coming against me and they are stronger than I am, the Lord has to help me. When they are not stronger than I am, the Lord watches me. Everything is a test. He wants to see how I am going to treat my opponent. Am I going to forgive their sins, am I going to retaliate, or am I merely going arm wrestle to the point that I break your power off of me so that I can go on and continue serving God. He is watching me, it is a test you see.
When the day comes that somebody attacks me that is stronger than I am, the Lord has to help me, how does He help me? I have been telling you this for years, the way the Lord helps me, is that He will put pressure, some kind of pressure on the person hurting me. The example is, if someone is putting a knife in you, and a dog came along and bit their leg, and was chewing on their leg, that person would most likely let go of the knife, and start dealing with the dog that is biting their leg.
What happens is this, if the person that is attacking me was an attack that I cannot throw off, and that attack is unrighteous, that person comes under the sowing and reaping judgment, that righteous sowing and reaping judgment of Jehovah, and that righteous sowing and reaping judgment sends the dog to bite their leg to cause them pain so that they let go of me. And when they let go of me, I am tested to see what I do when they let go of me. That is the way it works, I have been telling you all that here for a long time.
In this message, we are going to see the details, the spiritual details of how that works, and from the other point of view, which is really very exciting to me, is this, now you have to be very careful brethren, because what I am going to tell you is about people who are in Christ, if you do what I am about to tell you and you are not in Christ, you are practicing witchcraft and you need to know that there are serious consequences for witchcraft. Those of us who are being raised up to the sons of God, are being sent to other men to graft the mind of Christ to them, and the strengthen that mind of Christ, until that person is strong enough and educated enough in Christ, to overthrow their own carnal mind.
Just about everybody that is sent to me and to whoever else is going to get this office, all of you are in training for the same office, everybody that is sent to me and people come to me with varying degrees of strength, but everybody that is sent to me, initially resists the efforts of Christ to graft His mind to them, and to even once the mind of Christ is grafted to the individual, that individual by a knee jerk reaction resists giving up the thought processes of the carnal mind so that they can start moving in the mind of Christ, it is just a natural resistance.
It is just like saying to a doctor if he came with a scalpel to do surgery on you, that doctor had to put pressure on that scalpel because the body is not saying, alright cut me open, I know that you are about to operate on me to save my life, so cut me open and I will not resist, the muscle resists, you have to put pressure down to cut that muscle. This is the process that we are up against.
What I am up against is your carnal mind, I have been sent, you have been sent to me, okay, for this training, I have been sent to you to bring down your carnal mind. Your carnal mind represents the wall of Jericho that stands around and encapsulates your Christ mind and is standing between the Christ in me and that infantile Christ in you. The Christ in me has come to raise up the Christ in you, and that carnal mind or specifically Cain, stands between us, and my job is to bring down that wall of Jericho. It is a warfare and I have to tell you it is the most incredible experience to have somebody in my face really strong, powerful bulldog in my face opposing me, and to see that opposition just literally dissolve. What would make it dissolve? There are two factors, or three factors that makes that wall come down to the benefit of the disciple who wants Christ raised up him.
Christ cannot be raised up in you without your carnal mind being diminished, that is what John the Baptist said, I must decrease so that He can increase, there is no way, brethren, hear this, there is no way your Christ mind is rising to in any significant measure, if your carnal mind is not decreasing in an analogous measure, or in a proportionate measure, it is not happening, it is just not happening, if you will not give up your carnal mind, Christ is not growing in you, and you can complain to the Lord if you want, you can complain to Satan if you want, you can complain all day long, that is the way it is.
When you are a disciple in this ministry, or in any other ministry that is raised up by the Lord Jesus Christ for these purposes, there is a warfare going on between Christ in me and your carnal mind, and there are three factors that will cause your carnal mind to fall. Number one, you have to believe what I am telling you about this process, you have to believe that the Lord has sent you here to raise up Christ in you and that Christ cannot rise up until your carnal mind is brought down, and that my job is to help you bring down your carnal mind because why? Because you are not strong enough to fight yourself yet.
Only Christ can bring down the carnal mind. A house divided cannot stand, if you are not in Christ, then it is one part of your carnal mind trying to bring down another part of your carnal mind, and a house divided cannot stand. When you get Christ grafted to you, He is initially not strong enough to fight your carnal mind. There is a season in which you will have to submit to a teacher when your pride is screaming I would rather do it myself, but you are not strong enough yet to do it yourself.
It is just for a season until you get strong enough to do it yourself, see. The first factor is that you have to be in full agreement with the process, trusting Jesus Christ to defend you in the event that the teacher should be wrong. This is an ultimate act of faith or expression of faith in Jesus Christ, if you cannot submit to a teacher that God has witnessed to you, you should be studying under, if you cannot submit here, you have no faith in Jesus Christ to protect you, see, okay.
The second factor is the strength of the Christ in me to be able to bring down your carnal mind and I have met a couple of carnal minds that I am not strong enough to bring down yet, I am not strong enough yet to bring down, okay, the third factor is the presence of the glorified Jesus Christ, who does the final deed. You submit, I attack, the Lord Jesus Christ brings down, but the Lord Jesus Christ is not bringing down your carnal mind until you submit to me, and stand from my attack upon your carnal mind which attack comes in the form of the exposure of the truth of your motives, and the operation of Satan in the unconscious and subconscious part of your mind, and it is this warfare okay, this warfare about what happens when I am strong enough to bring down your carnal mind, and what happens when I am not strong enough to bring down your carnal mind, and what happens to me or to whoever is in this role that I am representing here, okay, when you are up against an opponent that is stronger than you, what usually happens to me is that I get physically sick. That is usually what happens to me, sometimes I will get a little carnal, but briefly, you know, I will not be able to stand up in the spirit that high, but that does not happen very much that way.
We are going to see all of this that I have been talking to you about for years, we are going to see in terms of, in graphic terms, you know, in the Zohar, in the terms of the Sefirot, just as we are talking about spiritual ascension in the terms of the Sefirot as we have seen on the other side of Babel, we found out what perfection is, how it is the union of certain Sefirot in us to the certain Sefirot of the glorified Jesus Christ, we are going to see it all in the details.
I remind you that whatever is being preached, that is what is happening to us, so the preaching of this message is very important because it is going to be intricately involved with the bringing down of the resistance of your carnal mind to everything that the Lord wants to do for you, that is what is going to be happening as we bring forth this message, and this deep understanding. Are there any questions or comments before we go into the next segment? Okay.
I am going to comment briefly on some of these passages in the Zohar concerning the scapegoat just to familiarize you with the esoteric principle of what God is trying to accomplish with the scapegoat. It was never the intention of the Lord for His people to indefinitely sin and be forgiven by having hands laid on a scapegoat, the day must come that we are cleansed from sin, and this is why Jesus Christ came, that we should be cleansed from sin, and you know brethren, the day is coming very soon that the truth is going to be preached in the church.
There is one preacher that is on tv right now, and his message, I have been listening to him for a weeks now, and his message is this, God never promised to make you wealthy, God promised to give you the power to get wealth, that means in Christ you have the power to become a disciplined person, to study to become educated, to learn how to submit to authority so that you get a good job, God has given you the power to make yourself and to become a person that will receive wealth. Brethren, the same principle exists with salvation, God has given us the power to be saved, you see, the sacrifice of Jesus Christ made available to mortal humanity, the power to be saved, but in order to be fully saved, and of course salvation is a process, so in order to be fully saved, we must war against the powers and principalities that legitimately own us.
What do you mean Sheila? Jehovah sold the creation under sin, when Adam sinned, Jehovah sold us to the Serpent, and the Serpent today is manifesting as Satan and Leviathan and Cain. We are legitimately theirs, do you hear this, we are theirs, the Lord is intervening on their rightful territory, to own us, to consume us, to punish us, and to bring destruction on our lives.
The righteous God who instituted the righteous sowing and reaping judgment which is enforced by Satan, has made a way of escape to help those who are under the power of sin, that is all of humanity, all of mortal humanity, we are all sold under the power of sin, and Jehovah has made a way by sending His son the Lord Jesus Christ, to show us how to comport and what to do that we should be delivered from this bondage, and just to avoid a further controversy here, let me say, that Jesus Christ in the days of his flesh, was indeed the son, however Jesus Christ having now departed from the flesh and from this world, He has ascended to a place higher than the name Jehovah, He has ascended all the way up to the name or the Partsuf Atik which is associated with the name Ehyeh, the highest name of God that I am familiar with, that is of the names that are associated with the Sefirot.
Our first passage from the Zohar, and I do not know, I really do not how to give you these references to these pages, all that I could tell you, is that you is that if you would really like to follow up on this, I suggest that you get the software, it is really, well I think it was posted $200, but it is available, and once you have the software with the Zohar on it, you can search for these words, that is the only way I can help you with this.
The reference that I have here is the Zohar Bereshith, section one, but the pages just do not line up, Soncino Zohar, Bereshith, section one, page 64a, and we read, “He further told us, that on the new year, there is in the world a first stirring. What is meant by a first stirring, this is the lower world tribunal, that means court, the lower world court. That is us. We are the lower court, which bestirs itself to bring the world to judgment.” What does that mean? That we are the lower court and we are bestirring ourselves to bring the world to judgment? First of all, the world does not necessarily mean the whole earth, each human is a cosmos, each one of us is a world, and what this means brethren, is that Satan, which is the enforcer of the sowing and reaping judgment is, unless she is restrained, is executing judgment on everybody that you get mad at, that is why Jesus said, anger is the sin of murder, because Satan in you goes forth to bring judgment on that person, and that is what this is talking about here.
We are the tribunal, we sit in judgment over the world whether we know it or not, “this tribunal continues in session until the day of atonement.” Did I say the whole thing, let me say it again, “What is meant by first stirring? This is the lower world tribunal which bestirs itself to bring the world to judgment.” On the other hand, aside from the ungodly judgment that comes forth from Satan in our mind, we have the godly judgment that comes forth from the sons of God who are judging righteous judgment, and what does it mean to judge righteous judgment? It means when the Lord calls us into session, the Lord shows us, for His own purposes, how do I say this Lord, how do we judge righteous judgment?
First of all, we have to receive the assignment from the Lord. Usually we have to witness some form of unrighteousness. And to judge righteous judgment when it is right in your face, you have to make a decision, whether what you are seeing is righteous or whether what you are seeing is not righteous.
The Phariseeism in the church, and the pride in the church says, Well you cannot judge anybody, so do not look at anything and do not say anything about anything, okay, that is not what the Scripture is talking about, if someone commits a crime right in front of you, and you witness it, you are supposed, if you are a Christian, Paul said, you are supposed to be judging angels, you are supposed to be able to say whether that person did wrong to his brother or not, when it is right in your face, okay, and that is what righteous judgment is, to not judge by what you see with your eyes or to not judge by what is in your own best interest, or to not judge by pride that wants to appear to be great person, but judging righteous judgment means to speak the truth as God sees the truth, about every circumstance that comes up right in front of your face, if it is not right in front of your face, you leave it alone, but if it is right in front of your face, you have to say what is right, if you want to go on with God, and if you want to be doing studies like this, you have to be able to say what is right, if it is about yourself, if it is about your husband or your wife, or your mother, or about you or about me, you have got to speak the truth.
If I do something wrong, you have got to speak the truth in love, without condemnation, but to be walking around in denial so that you should appear righteous, is a stench in God’s nose, and you will not be in a meeting like this, if that is what you are doing.
We see there are two kinds of court, there is a righteous court, held by Christ, and an unrighteous court held by Cain, all coming out of people’s minds. Let us try this again, “This is the lower world tribunal which bestirs itself to bring the world to judgment.” This is talking about God’s court run by Christ, “as God then sits in judgment over the world.” Remember the world could be one particular person or one particular event, “This tribunal continues in session until the day of atonement.”
According to the Zohar and according to the Jews of Old Testament, they declare, and maybe this was true in those days, I honestly do not know, I honestly do not know, but according to the Old Testament, this judgment only comes to pass on Rosh Hashanah, and Yom Kippur, the day of atonement, but in Christ, this judgment is now available, whenever Christ rises up in a person and puts a situation in front of you where you have to make a judgment, what kind of a situation would exists where you have to make a judgment, where a response is required from you, where a response is required from you, you must be able to make a judgment, is what you just saw happening, was that righteous, was it in God, or was it unrighteous, okay.
Under the old covenant, my understanding right now, because the Lord has not told me differently, is that under the old covenant, this kind of judgment took place only on the day of atonement, but in the new covenant, when Christ in mature enough in a person to judge righteous judgment, this day of atonement takes place the day that your behavior, whether your behavior is physical behavior or whether it is spiritual behavior okay, whether it is what is happening in your mind, or whether it is what is happening with your behavior, the day that this behavior is brought to the attention of someone in whom Christ is strong enough or mature enough to pass righteous judgment, that is your day of atonement, Rosh Hashanah has just come to you, and if you are in a ministry like this, every time you are in my presence, Rosh Hashanah has come to you. Praise the Lord.
The Zohar says, “This tribunal continues in session until the day of atonement, when the face of the moon is bright.” What does that mean? Who is the moon? The moon is the female which is Malkhut, that is the personality, and what does it mean that the face of the moon is bright? It means that the light of God is shining through her, so let me read this again, “This tribunal continues in session until the day of atonement when the face of the moon is bright.” When my personality is enlightened by the glory of God, the Day of Atonement is at hand, is that not what I just told you? Okay.
Under the old covenant, if there were people, if there were men who had, and there was an imputed Christ in the old covenant, there were people in the old covenant that had an imputed Christ, so whenever there was a personality that was enlightened, whenever there was a moon that was brightened because Christ was living through them, any wrong doing that happened in front of that man or that woman’s eyes, it was a day of atonement for that person, got it? Okay.
I will read again, “This tribunal continues in session until the day of atonement when the face of the moon is bright...”, that is when a human being is illuminated by Christ, “and the slanderous Serpent leaves the world alone.” What does that mean? “And the slanderous Serpent leaves the world alone, being occupied with the he goat which has been offered to him, an appropriate offering, as the goat is from the impure region. What we are being told here is that Cain has been offered up. Listen, in order for the moon, for a personality to be shining because they are illuminated by Christ, Cain in that individual, must be given as a sacrifice.
There is no way that Christ is going to be shining through an individual with Cain reigning in that person, Christ must be sacrificed, and the way it is put here in parable form is that, the day of atonement is here, the face of the moon is bright, the individual is enlightened by Christ, and when this happens, at the same time you need to know that the slanderous Serpent is going to leave your world alone, and the reason the slanderous Serpent is leaving your world alone, is that, that Serpent will be occupied with the he goat which has been offered to him, an appropriate offering.
My understanding at this point is that this is just a parable, okay, it is a way of saying that Satan is satisfied. How am I going to explain this Lord? This is the flavor of the Zohar, that the Serpent has to be satisfied to leave Israel alone. When I first read that, it really offended me that a book of God should be saying that a sacrifice should be made or that penance or that the Serpent should be bought off to leave Israel alone, that really offended me. Today I now understand that first of all, we belong to the Serpent, and the Serpent has, and Satan the agent of the Serpent in the world today, not only has the right but is the Servant of God whose function it is to execute or to enforce the sowing and reaping judgment.
Satan has the right to harass us, because we all sin, every second of every minute of every hour of every day in the unconscious part of our mind, that is why we get sick and die. Therefore, see, the Lord will never violate His own officers. Satan is the enforcer of the sowing and reaping judgment, she is a legitimate officer in the household of God, that is how she appeared in the account with Job, and the Lord is not going to shut her down when she is doing her legitimate job, but because the Lord loves Israel and the church is spiritual Israel, because the Lord loves spiritual Israel and He knows that Israel has sinned because we are all mortal and we all sin, the Lord is going to vie off the Serpent for a season that she should leave Israel alone, that is the way the parable is put but the truth of the matter is, at least my understanding at this time, that this sacrifice that goes to Satan, is the sacrifice of Cain.
This is a difficult one brethren, but this is my understanding that is being given to me in the symbol of the scapegoat, there are two goats, there are two pebbles, Cain and Abel, they are one goat, two sides of the one goat, and somehow at the moment it is not as clear to me as I would like it to be, but the answer seems to be, that in order, okay, the Lord just gave it to me, thank you Jesus, in order for Christ, in order for Abel to ascend, and for the personality to be illuminated, in order for the moon to shine, okay, Cain must be sacrificed to the Serpent, what does that mean?
It means brethren, that the sins that we are guilty of, the person, the son in whom Christ is risen, the personality of whom Christ is shining, that person must be under the white throne judgment, you see, their sins are being judged, okay, not unto destruction, but unto correction, and that judgment of the sins of that person somehow is giving energy to Satan. I am going to try and say that again.
Let me give you this back up here, Satan feeds off of human beings, she literally consumes or eats and lives off of our energy, the reason that Satan is the great accuser, is that, when she accuses us and sin is found in us, she is able, she now legitimately able to take our energy and consume it. So when sin is revealed, Satan gets a reward, when sin is revealed in you or in me, Satan gets a reward. If Satan is the one who is revealing the sin, she can depending on the degree of the sin, take our energy to the point of our sickness and our death.
When Christ reveals sin in us under the blood of Jesus, there is a discharge of energy that is given to Satan, but whatever energy is discharged because we are dealing with this sin, is more than replaced by the energy that comes from Christ. So therefore, the exposure of sin in the son whose personality is shining, okay because of the illumination of Christ, that energy that is discharged because sin has been revealed in that son, pacifies Satan, and the Lord Jesus Christ replaces all that is lost, and more so with His glory as a reward. This is the sacrifice that pacifies the Serpent, this is the Lord’s plan for those of us who are sinners but who are being returned to our first estate.
Going on with the reading, “being occupied with the goat, he the Serpent, does not come near the sanctuary, and who is the sanctuary? The sanctuary is Christ, and Abel is now in Christ. Praise the Lord, okay, any questions or comments before we go on to the next passage?
I am going to skip down here. Such a king is plunged in darkness until he purifies himself and regains the supernal sphere, it is for that reason that a he goat is offered up on a new moon days, namely because that field has been estranged from the divine king, so that no blessings from the king could rest upon it.
I am not going to spend too much time on this. Basically let me tell you, Christ is the king of every individual that he inhabits, and when Christ is ruling through you, you become a king ruling over all of the elements of your personality. What we are being told here is that a he goat is offered up on new moon days because somebody, a field, each one of us is an energy field brethren, because a field has been estranged from the divine king, and who is the divine king? Christ Jesus is the divine king, He is the Lord of Lords and the King of Kings, each one of us is a king over our own vessel, but He is the King of Kings.
What we are told, what we are being told here is that when a personality is overcome and ruled by the energy field called the carnal mind, okay, a goat is offered up, it is the same principle. Why is a goat offered up? A goat is offered up so that the king can get free. Let me make this clear for you, let me bring it into reality, let me bring the parable into reality for you. Look, a human being is lost in sin, let us make it severe, okay, they are a drug addict, they cannot get free from drug addiction, the personality, that personality is a king, is a fallen king, the carnal mind, the energy field of the carnal mind is ruling that king and that person, but that person now has an experience with Jesus Christ, okay, but Satan is so strong on that man that he cannot get free, so a sacrifice is given to Satan to appease Satan to leave the king alone, and what is the sacrifice? The sacrifice is the confession of the king’s sins.
This confession of sin brings that personality under the dominion of the white throne judgment which is judgment unto correction, okay, so even though the judgment is under correction, merely by the confession of sin, energy is released, and Satan gets her bone to chew on and leaves the personality alone, as the personality gets stronger and stronger in Christ to eventually overthrow Satan completely.
This is the principle of the scapegoat, okay, this is what we are talking about here. Let us go on to the next one. I understand that I am picking up in the middle of passages here. “For the same reason every new moon, a goat is offered up”, I am down at the bottom of page one there, in the last paragraph, “for the same reason, every new moon, a goat is to be offered up so as to draw the Serpent, to his own place, and thus keep him away from the moon.” Who is the moon? The moon is the personality. Confess your sins, if you want Satan to stay away from you, if you want to be free from the sowing and reaping judgment, if you want to be free from disease and car accidents, and all forms of material disaster in your life, transfer over from the sowing and reaping judgment to the white throne judgment, confess your sins, receive the discipline and the correction of the Lord, which are much more tolerable than the judgments I just named, such as sickness, disease, death, material loss, and all forms of disaster in your life. When you confess your sins, the Lord will take that energy, you see, here is the principle, when you confess, all energy, all of the energy, that is a human being, belongs to the Lord.
The Lord can be saying, Well, when you confess your sins and that energy is released, I want it. The Scripture talks about the Lord consuming the sacrifice, right? Does not the Scripture talk about sacrifices and the odor going up and the Lord consuming, the Lord has a right to take the energy that is released from you when you confess your sins because it is His Spirit, but He relinquishes that, okay, Christ in you relinquishes that.
Let us look at this from another point of view, do remember what the doctrine of Christ teaches, from the time Christ is grafted to you He begins to wage war against Satan, and if He wages war against Satan, Satan is boiled, and as Satan is boiled, the energy is separated from the sediment, and Christ absorbs that energy, and gets stronger and stronger and stronger, okay, but some of that energy Christ gives to the Serpent, some of that energy Christ gives to the Fiery Serpent.
He lets Cain, a part of the Fiery Serpent, keep it. If I have it backwards, you will have to forgive me, my principle in general is right. Satan is being boiled, okay. We know what a, previously I said, Well Cain is the one that is being sacrificed to Satan, maybe both are true, in this particular passage, it sounds like Satan is being sacrificed and it is Christ’s right to absorb this energy, but to keep Cain quiet, Christ is saying, Here Cain, here is a little bit, just shut up and do not interfere with the process that is liberating Abel. Everybody okay? Okay. It is true on all sides. Praise the Lord.
Let us see what else we have here, “the same applies to the Day of Atonement, when a goat is to be offered, all of this is cunningly devised in order to gain dominion over him and make him impotent to do mischief.” Who is him?
All of this, all that I just described to you which is the offering of the goat, see, not the offering of the scapegoat, but the offering of the goat which means one of the two goats, which is the offering of Cain. The scapegoat is the two of them together.
The scapegoat, at least on these passages here, the scapegoat is not offered the goat is offered, and that is Cain is offered up, how do you offer up Cain? You confess your sins, Cain is the sinner in you, so when you expose him and admit that you are in agreement, well actually Cain is a her, when you expose her and confess those sins, you are offering up Cain, and all of this is cunningly devised in order to gain dominion over Cain, and to make him impotent to do mischief.
And so the Scripture says, “And the goat shall bear upon him all of their iniquity into a land which is cut off.” What that is saying is that, whatever energy Christ does absorb, do not worry about it, because it is just a matter of time until Cain is cut off, and Christ will absorb, and will take back all of that energy, that was given to Cain. Praise the Lord.
Consider this, the priests, the Levites, and the Israelites are called Adam, which means man, “Through the unison of the holy liturgies which proceed from them”, that means something that I have been telling you all along for quite a while. Mortal man is not a man, and the word both in Hebrew and Greek that describes mortal man, is a secondary word. We are even less than half a man, we are all fragments of men.
However, when Christ grafts Himself to us, we become a whole man, and that is what this is talking about here. The priests, the Levites and the Israelites are called Adam, they are whole men, you see. In the New Testament, when the Scripture talks about the Pharisees doing evil to Jesus, they use the Greek word that signifies the whole man, Anthropos, it is Strong’s #444, we are told that the priest that persecuted Jesus were whole men, which means they should have known better, they should have heard from the God within them saying, That is my Spirit over there, and the only reason that these priest s did not hear from God, was that their pride was blocking the communication, because they were whole men, you see.
“The priests, the Levites, and the Israelites are called Adam, man, through the unison of the holy liturgies which proceed from them.” They had Christ. The Levites, the Israelites, and the priests had Christ, had an imputed Christ, that is what we are told. “Whenever a sheep or a lamb or any animal was brought as an offering, it was required of those who brought it, before it was offered on the altar, to receive over it, all sins and evil intentions and thoughts, and to make confession of them, and it is thus that the creature is designated a behema, an animal throughout, in that, it carries these sins and evil thoughts.” We are being told here that all sins and evil thoughts reside in the animal, in spiritual life there is no, in the spiritual life of God, there is no such thing. “As in the case of the ozazel, the scapegoat offering, it is written, And he shall confess over him all of the iniquities of the children of Israel, so it is here, the one offering brought on the altar bears a two-fold burden.” Here we go, Cain and Abel. Here it is, “the one offering brought on the altar bears a two-fold burden, consequently, each part goes to its fitting place, the one called man, and the other..”, I do not know what that word qua means, possibly portion, “the one portion means man and the other means beast, as we read, man and beast thou dost save oh Lord.” What we are being told here is that the scapegoat has two parts, the mystery of that is that the two parts are Cain and Abel, and Cain is the beast, and Abel is the man, and both must be sacrificed but different kinds of sacrifices.
When Jesus Christ was sacrificed on the cross, the sacrifice of Jesus Christ when it enters into a human being, becomes the power or the enabling power or the strengthening power of Abel in you when the seed of Christ enters into a mortal man it becomes the empowering of Abel, which is the destruction of Cain, Abel goes under the white throne judgment, confesses his sins and increases in Christ, and Cain goes under the sowing and reaping judgment, and eventually is brought to naught. I have been teaching in the doctrine of Christ for years now, that Jesus Christ provided the strength for us to sacrifice our own Leviathan, that is what I have been preaching, according to what is coming forth in this message, it is not Leviathan that we have to sacrifice, but it is our own Fiery Serpent, it is the Fiery Serpent that has to be sacrificed, and that sacrifice is a two-fold sacrifice, the Abel side of the Fiery Serpent must come under the white throne judgment, that means we must submit ourselves to the corrective eye of the Lord Jesus Christ and His servants, and that includes our motives, the sins of the unconscious and subconscious parts of our mind, and we must also punish and sacrifice Cain, the evil side of us which must be cut off completely. We are the scapegoat see, and mortal man is a scapegoat. Praise the Lord.
Last sentence of what we just discussed reads,
Psalms 36:7, “Man and beast thou dost save Oh Lord.”
We see that Cain really is saved, but Cain is saved through death, and this is why we are encouraged to enter into the death of the Lord Jesus Christ, it is the death of the Cain side of ourselves. The next paragraph down, this really has nothing to do with this message, but I cannot really resist it because I recently preached a message talking about the crucifixion of Christ whereby I said, that Jesus departed from His body before the body died, and here we find it in the Zohar, so I cannot resist it, I just would like to read you this sentence. “Ordinarily it is through the angel of death that the souls of men pass out of their bodies, but with that man it was no so, but he that slew him made his soul depart from him before the time came for the angel of death to gather him in. Hence it is written, and no expiation can be made for the land, for the blood that is shed therein, but by the blood of him that sheddeth.” I have to spend some time on that, first of all you might be saying, but Sheila, it said, but he that slew him made his soul depart, I thought you said, jesus did not die, that he departed from the body or the grave which is called death. Yes, that is true, Jesus was slain, Jesus’ carnal mind was slain, and this is exactly what we are talking about, Jesus’ carnal mind on the Cain side of him was slain, the Abel side of him was completely matured and married to the resurrected Christ within him, and they both departed, the one who slew him, the Christ, who slew the enmity in the flesh of Jesus of Nazareth, caused the soul of Christ to depart before the angel of death came to gather Him in. Can you hear that, did I make that clear?
Now listen to this, and no expiation can be made for the land, and we are the land, for the blood that is shed therein. What blood is shed here? We kill Christ everyday brethren, we kill Him, our carnal mind kills Christ continuously. But Sheila, I thought Christ cannot die anymore. Your carnal mind kills Christ in me and maybe sometimes my carnal mind kills Christ in you, I am not perfect yet, we kill Christ all of the day long.
“And no expiation can be made for the land, for the blood that is shed therein, but by the blood of him that shed it.” Listen brethren, you who kill Christ, the only way your sins are going to be expiated is by you killing your carnal mind, Jesus cannot, and will not do it for you, Jesus has made available to you the power to be saved, you must lay hold of that power and kill the enmity in your flesh, no one can do it for you, Jesus cannot do it for you, I cannot do it for you, Jesus gives you the power, I am giving you the training, you have to kill the enmity in your flesh. Praise the Lord.
That is just a little aside there. Talking about the Shofar, the trumpet, the ram’s horn trumpet that is blasted on Rosh Hashanah now, “there goes forth a blast from on high, these through the two blasts”, there are two blasts from the trumpet, “through the two blasts, the one on high and the one below, the world is fortified and mercy prevails, these two blasts signify judgment, the judgment from on high, and the judgment from below.” This sounds like a contradiction to the carnal mind, but the judgment that comes from on high is much harsher than the judgment that comes down from the human courts, see.
The reason that the Scripture says, that all judgment is given unto the Son, that is the mercy of God that all judgment is given unto the Son, because the judgment that comes down from above, the judgment that comes down from Binah kills you, you would be destroyed, that is the sowing and reaping judgment, but the judgment that comes from the Son, is the judgment of mercy, that shows you your sins, gives you corrective judgment, and gives you His life in its place. That is why all judgment is given over to the Son, thank God all judgment is given over to the Son. That is our hope of survival.
We see that the two blasts of the Shofar that we hear on Rosh Hashanah signify the two kinds of judgment. “Through the two blasts the one on high, and the other below, the world is fortified and mercy prevails. The accuser then, who thought to prevail in judgment”, that is Satan who thought to gather in the energy of the saints because he knew he could their sins and find us guilty, judge our sins and find us guilty, “and to obtain sentence on the world becomes confounded.” Satan the accuser becomes confounded. Why is Satan confounded? Because here we are confessing our sins and repenting and getting forgiven, Satan is completely confounded and his strength fails and he is unable to achieve anything, he is unable to destroy us.
Brethren, if you are in any kind of trouble, any kind of trouble at all, the most powerful weapon you can exercise is confession of sin and repentance, and if you do not know what you did wrong, throw yourself on the mercy of the Lord, and repent and confess and repent in faith and say, Lord, please show me so that I can confess and repent in detail because I want out of this trouble. Any unresolved conflict is not of God, it is not of God. “The holy one then sitting in judgment, joins mercy to justice”, because justice would wipe us out, we all deserve death, so the holy one who judges our sins and corrects us, joins mercy to justice, “and so the world is judged by mercy and not rigorously, and not unto destruction. Observe the verse, below the horn at the new moon, at the time of its covering for our feast day, the Hebrew word bacasa, which means at the covering, means the time that the moon is invisible.” When is the time that the moon is invisible? It is the time that the sun is completely covering over the moon, that is when Christ is at high noon, Christ is completely over us. “For at that time the evil serpent is in power and is able to do hurt to the world”, I see, when the moon is invisible, it does mean when the sun is at high noon directly over the moon, that means full judgment coming down from on high, so when the full judgment is coming down from on high, the evil serpent has the power to kill everybody where sin is exposed, “but when mercy is aroused”, and that is Christ, “the moon ascends and is removed from that place.” When Christ comes, the moon, the personality is raised up, we are in heavenly places with Christ, and we are taken away from that place where we become vulnerable to the serpent.
“The evil serpent is confounded, loses his power and is unable to approach there. Hence on new year day, it is necessary to confound the serpent, so that he should be like one awakening from sleep and still half conscious.” In other words, when we confess our sins, that is the effect that we are having on Satan, again that she is awakening from sleep and half conscious. “Again on the day of atonement it is requisite to pacify and propitiate him, the serpent, by means of the scapegoat which is brought to him, whereby he is induced to undertake the defense of Israel.”
“Again on the day of atonement it is requisite to pacify and propitiate him, the serpent, by means of the scapegoat which is brought to him...” The scapegoat now is talking about two goats, that is talking about the judgment of Cain, and the righteous judgment of Abel, so we see that on the Day of Atonement, both are turned over to Satan. What does that mean? For Satan to glean the energy that is released from the confession of sin of both Cain and Abel. Then the Zohar says, “Whereby he is induced to undertake the defense of Israel.”
That stymied me a little bit, “whereby the serpent was induced to undertake the defense of Israel”, I am not really sure what that means but the thought that came to mind is, Well, the serpent is really going to be helping Israel, because he is sleeping, I better leave it go because I am not really sure what that phrase means, so let us just go on.
“But on New Year day, he becomes confused, the serpent becomes confused and unable to do anything.” The thought that just came into my mind, “as to whereby he is induced to undertake the defense of Israel”, actually the judgment of sin is the defending of Israel, if there is a wicked man a murderer in Israel, it is to the benefit of Israel for him to be destroyed. Let me try that again, “Again on the day of atonement, it is requisite to pacify and propitiate him, the serpent by means of a scapegoat which is brought to him, whereby he is induced to undertake the defense of Israel”, by judging the wicked. “But on New Year day, he, the serpent becomes confused, and is unable to do anything and is not able to judge the wicked.” “He sees the stirring of mercy ascending from below”, that is the son, “and the awakening of mercy on high, and the moon”, that is the personality in between them, “and he, the serpent is thereby confounded and remains bewildered and powerless”, because he cannot figure out what is going on, the program is changing. “And so the holy one dispenses His judgment to Israel in a spirit of mercy.” This is the putting away of the sowing and reaping judgment. “The holy one confuses the serpent so that she cannot really execute that sowing and reaping judgment, and while the serpent is confounded, Christ Jesus dispenses His judgment to Israel in a spirit of mercy rather than destruction, and accords them as a time of grace those ten days between new year day and the day of atonement, for the acceptance of all those who repent of their sins and for forgiveness of their iniquities by giving them a respite till the day of atonement. The holy one has thus given Israel all of these commandments to save them from falling into the wrong hands and from being judged with rigor”, that is unto death, “so that they should all come out innocent on earth.” Do you hear that? I will say that again brethren, this is the purpose for all judgment. “The holy one has thus given Israel”, and that is the church, we are spiritual Israel, “The holy one has thus given Israel all of these commandments to save them from falling into the wrong hands, to save them from falling into the hands of the serpent, and from being judged with the harsh judgment that destroys you, for the specific purpose the holy one gives all of these commandments for the specific purpose that we should all come out innocent on earth.” That is the motive of God.
Everyone who resists the exposure of their sin nature, is refusing the offer of God to make them innocent. “God however, had compassion on Israel, and provided them with a device for escaping from it, to wit”, to escaping, to escaping from what? Escaping from destruction. “To wit, the trumpet”, that is the shofar, “which is to be blown on New Year’s Day.” I have already told you that the two blasts of the trumpet signify judgment.
The judgment from above judges Cain, and that is the judgment without mercy, and the judgment from below judges Abel with mercy. “God had compassion on Israel and provided them with a device for escaping from destruction to wit, the trumpet, the shofar which is to be blown on New Year’s Day, and the scapegoat, which they give it on the Day of Atonement.” Who is it? It is the serpent, and the scapegoat which is given on the Day of Atonement. Brethren, on the day of atonement, your whole Fiery Serpent Can and Abel is turned over or is turned over for judgment, and whatever energy is released, is given to the serpent on that day, in order that it, the serpent may leave them alone”, may leave who alone? May leave Christ, I am sorry, may leave the personalities that are reaching for Christ alone, “and occupy itself with its own portion, of this it is written.” I guess that is all that applies to our study for today. It is the same principle, the serpent is given a portion of the energy that is released when sin is confessed and judged, so that she will leave the personalities that are moving into Christ, alone. She is given just enough to pacify her.
I remember years ago, my pastor once said from the pulpit, he asked the Lord, why do you not just wipe Satan out? We would die if Satan was wiped out, Satan is in our carnal mind, and she is here legally, she is possessing mortal humanity legally, therefore the Lord pacifies her, and the way of escape that the Lord has made is that we should receive a new mind and stop sinning, which will cause the serpent to lose all her legal right to us, because there is no law against a righteous man, see, the Lord will not break His own law, He will make us righteous, but He will not break His own law, everything will have its just recompense.
You could be in the highest office in Christ, everything will have its just recompense. There is no avoidance of sin, and you will see that when we, it will not be today, but when we move on with this message and start applying it to some of the New Testament Scriptures, we will be applying this to the Scriptures concerning the temptation of Jesus, and we will see that the, what was really behind all of the temptations, was for Jesus to escape judgment, that Jesus should escape judgment.
All of the power that Satan was offering Him, was to escape judgment. Fallen man, no matter how far advanced you are in Christ, when it comes to having your sins exposed, nobody wants it done, just nobody wants it done, that is the temptation, as you see yourself ascending in Christ, to believe, to forget that you are the personality and that Christ is in you, okay, and to believe that you are Christ, and therefore, there is no judgment that is necessary to come unto you.
As long as you are in this flesh, you need to be under judgment, that is the fallen mind, you see, that those of us who are moving into Christ must guard against continuously, because the destruction that comes from Satan is subtle, it is subtle, you do not see it seeping in, you see. Let us finish up here. “We have learned that on the side of the mother”, and who is the mother, does anybody know who the mother is? Who is the mother?
PASTOR VITALE: Yes, Binah is the partsuf and Binah is the Sefirah. “We have learned that on the side of the mother”, and which is the side of the mother, the left or the right, which side is the mother on?
COMMENT: On the right.
PASTOR VITALE: No, Binah is on the left, okay, judgment comes from the mother. “We have learned that on the side of the mother, there are two emissaries attached to her left hand, who roam about the world to spy it out.” That of course is Cain and Abel, because Abel, you see, when a person does not have Christ, Abel in them is under the dominion of Cain and the two of them are evil. You have to understand this is spiritual, that does not mean you are a serial murderer, if you do not have Christ, it does not mean you are a serial killer, it means that, if neither side of you is serving Christ, from the Lord’s point of view, Abel is just as guilty as Cain, okay.
“We have learned from the side of the mother that there are two emissaries attached to her left hand, who roam about the world to spy it out. Now Israel are God’s portion, and from His great love for them, He gave them one day in the year to cleanse and purify them from all their sins, and therefore on this day, they are crowned and are safe from all executioners and all hostile emissaries. It is written that Aaron shall cast lots upon the two he goats.” Why is one of these for the Lord? Abel is the one of the two that is for the Lord. “Because God said, Let one abide by me and the other roam about the world.” Let Abel abide by me, and let Cain roam about the world. Do remember when Cain was put out of the garden, he was going to be roaming across the world? Remember that? “For if the two were combined, the world would not be able to stand against them.” That is interesting because what I see here, I see here what I have taught about Satan and Leviathan, I do not really see this as Cain and Abel, to tell you the truth, I have taught that Satan, years ago before we ever went into Kabbalah, before, I really had so little understanding, I said that Satan was in the brain, and Leviathan or the Fiery Serpent was down in the earth, in the groin, and that they were separated because they were separated at the time that the Lord brought down the efforts to build the tower of Babel. I preached that years ago and I never forgot it.
Now that we are talking about the tower of Babel again, I did recall that, I do not know what message it was in, but I remember standing at that board, and I could not decide which one was in the brain, Satan or Leviathan, and I decided that Satan was in the brain, and Leviathan was down in the earth, so the Lord divided them at the time that He put a stop to the erection of the tower of Babel.
Let us read this paragraph, and from that point of view, “We have learned that on the side of the mother, there are two emissaries, Satan and Leviathan, attached to her left hand, who roam about the world to spy it out. Now Israel are God’s portion, and from His great love for them, He gave them one day in the year to cleanse and purify them from all of their sins, and therefore on this day, they are crowned and are safe from all executioners and all hostile emissaries. It is written that Aaron shall cast lots upon the two he goats. Why is one of these for the Lord? Because God said, Let one abide by me and let the other roam about the world.” This is so typical of the world, it is just going back and forth, at the beginning, it is talking about Satan and Leviathan, as I said, then when it talks about the two he goats, it is talking about Cain and Abel, and then it says, “Why is one of these for the Lord? Because God said, Let one abide by me, and let the other roam the world.” Because if Satan and Leviathan were combined in the world, He goes back and forth between Cain and Abel and Satan and Leviathan.
For if Satan and Leviathan were combined in the world, if they were combined, the world would not be able to stand against them, the person who ascends spiritually from the spiritual center in the earth, which is in the root center, okay, where the Fiery Serpent is attached to Leviathan, the person ascends up into the brow energy center, and you may remember these teachings from the doctrine of Christ, ascends up to the brow energy center becomes the ascended Fiery Serpent which is the swine, okay, and eventually joins with the Serpent and becomes a manifestation of Pharaoh in that individual, the world could not stand against it, they would be destroyed.
This was the condition of the Philistines when the Lord said to the Israelites, Go in and destroy them, every man, woman, child, and animal, they were so ascended on the evil side, that there was no deliverance for the individual, they had to kill them, that is what this is talking about, it is talking about, a full stature of evil. If the two were combined, if Satan and Leviathan were combined with the Serpent from on high, on the other side, the world would not be able to stand against them. The second one therefore, goes forth, and when he finds Israel absorbed in religious service, and pious deeds, and all at peace with one another, he can see no opportunity to bring a charge against them.
Contention is sin, division is very dangerous, Satan comes right in and accuses us, you see, there is absolutely no excuse for contention or division in God’s household if everybody is in order, okay. You submit to the authority and in that order you put the issue before the Lord, and the Lord will convict everybody, a division like we had here, someone was put out of the ministry, is only because of a failure to confess their sins and repent, and it came necessary to have peace in this household, a separation became necessary. There is absolutely no excuse for arguing or division or any kind of contention. If I make a mistake and you submit to me, God will correct me, and you have a right to go before Him and ask for that judgment, if you go in the right spirit, what is a right spirit?
First you must assume you are guilty? You say, Lord if I am guilty, I accept it, if I am guilty, help me to understand it, if I am not guilty, please speak to my authority. There is just no possible excuse for an argument in God’s household.
Let me find my place here. “We have learned that there are many demons under his control, under Satan’s control, whose office is to spy out the earth, for those who transgress the commandments of the law. But on that day”, on what day? “The Day of Atonement, when”, what is the Day of Atonement? The Day of Atonement is the day that your every sin is being exposed. That is what goes on here. When you are here with me, every sin is exposed, on that day, Satan has no opportunity to bring any accusation against you. “But on that day, there is no opening for any accusation against Israel, when that he goat reaches the rock of Azazel”, and Azazel is the Hebrew word for scapegoat, “when that he goat”, that means either Cain or Abel, we do not know which one they are talking about right here, reaches the rock of Azazel, there is great rejoicing and the emissary who went forth to accuse returns and declares the praises of Israel, the accuser becoming the defender.”
All that I am going to say right now about that it must be the repentance of Cain, but I am not, I have not meditated on that, and it is really not a part of our message today so I am just going to go past it. “And not only on this day but whenever Israel’s desire to be cleansed of their sins, God chose them how to restrain the accusers by means of the offerings which are brought before the holy one, blessed be he, and then they cannot harm. But this day is more efficacious than all, and just as Israel appease all below, so all of those who have accusations to bring above are appeased, that means you could be appeased by a human is speaking language, or you can be accused by the unconscious part of their mind. “We have learned that at the hour of which it is written, that Aaron should take the two he goats, all of those accusers above rouse themselves and seek to go forth into the world, and when Aaron brings near those below, those above”, who? The accusers, that means the accusers in the spirit, and the accusers in the flesh, they all come near to you, “the lots are then produced for both sides.” Cain is produced wherever he is going to be produced, and Abel is produced wherever he is going to be produced, “And as the priest casts lots below, so the priest casts lots above, and just as below one is left for the holy one, and one is thrust out into the wilderness, Cain is thrust out into the wilderness, and Abel is left for the holy one, so above one remains for the holy one, blessed be he, and one goes forth into the supernal wilderness.”
The two are connected, the one above is connected to the one below. It just like saying our body cannot be separated from our mind, our mind is above, and our body is below. “It is written later, And Aaron shall lay his two hands on the head of the live goat and confess over him, he must use both hands in order that the holy one may concur with him. The he goat is called live to include the one above.” Abel, this is not the scapegoat, this the he goat, this is Cain that is being sent out, yet two hands are laid on the he goat, two hands are laid on Cain so that the one above is included.
“The words ‘over him’ mean that the sins shall all be left on the goat. Rabbi asked how this could be reconciled with the verse which says,
Leviticus 27:7, “And they shall no more sacrifice their sacrifices unto the he goats after which they go a whoring.”
And the Rabbi replied, the Scripture does not say that they should not sacrifice he goats, but that they should not sacrifice two he goats. So here the goat bore on itself all of their iniquities, but the offering was brought only to the holy one, Abel went to the holy one, and Cain carried all of the iniquities, and through the offering our brethren are appeased and judgment has no sway over Israel.”
The he goat that goes out into the wilderness is given to Satan to feast on, and Abel is called unto the Lord, but of course this temporary because we know that in Christ Jesus the whole other side is reconciled unto God, what does that mean? They are brought back into submission to the Lord Jesus Christ, and there is no more sin, there will be no more death, it is going to be blotted out. What does that mean that there is no more death? If death is going to be blotted out, there must be no more sin, you know, so this is just a temporary measure, that Satan gets Cain, what does that mean? Cain is subject to the judgment of destruction, Satan gets Cain wherever she can find it, wherever she can finally go around to get in there, and the holy one gets Abel, that is the corrective judgment that raises up Christ, and then eventually Christ destroys Cain.
Just one word about the paragraphs that I read previously, where the paragraph changes, where the terms change from Satan and Leviathan to Cain and Abel, that is very common in the Zohar, because they are really the same entity at different stages of maturity. Cain and Abel are really the same as Satan and Leviathan at different stages of maturity. It is only when Christ comes, that there is a division between Cain and Abel, and Abel, one is taken and one is left, one is taken unto the Lord, and the other is left, and Satan is appeased.
What does that mean? It means, brethren, that Satan has to be appeased to some degree as long as we are in the flesh. This will only come to an end, okay. This appeasement of Satan will only come to an end when there is no more flesh. This flesh body is formed by the carnal mind, and the carnal mind is going to be broken apart and dissolved, and then there will be no more flesh man, but we will have a spiritual body, see. Satan is appeased as long as is necessary to have a carnal mind, if the Lord wiped out our carnal mind, we would die, so the appeasement of Satan is an acknowledgment that she has to exist so long as we need these physical bodies, until we are purified enough to come out of our physical bodies like Jesus did, Satan must be appeased, because if the Lord wiped her out, we would die, and the Christ that was in us would die. Everybody okay? Okay, we are going to break for dinner and when we come back from dinner we are going to comment on some very deep passages, much deeper than this, in another part of the Zohar, and I do have some correlations to the New Testament, and in particular Jesus’ temptations, but I do not know that we will get to it today, the way it looks now is that either we will finish it tonight, or there will just part two, but I have said that before and we have gone to ten parts, so right now we are going out to dinner. God bless you.
COMMENT: Sheila, I was confused, you used to preach that Cain and Abel are never separated, and on this part, Cain goes into the wilderness, and I was wondering if you could explain that.
PASTOR VITALE: They are not physically separated, it is the energy of Cain goes to the carnal mind and the energy of Abel goes to Christ, because we do have two minds and we are two men okay. Do you have another question? Okay.
COMMENT: It is not a question, am just absolutely amazed, all of these years we were taught that Jesus was a scapegoat, and now we found out we are the scapegoat.
PASTOR VITALE: (chuckle), okay.
Praise the Lord, we are back from dinner, and we are now going to comment on a portion of the Zohar called, well the portion comes from the section called, we know it as Pinhas, but in Hebrew is Pinhas. We are going to comment on that section, and then we have a commentary on that section by a Rabbi and we will also comment on the commentary. I find the section, this Parashef, he is very profound, the Zohar is very profound and I see the whole message of the doctrine of Christ in the Zohar but it is in parable form, and I have no idea how much the Rabbis know concerning the other side. It is my understanding, at least when the information is available to me, that the Kabbalists are only, really do not deal with the other side, they do not deal with it, they deal with it minimally.
The doctrine of Christ is the message of the other side, and you have to have the whole counsel of God to ascend back to our first estate. Before I start reading, I am just looking while I was waiting for you all to finish reading, I was looking at the paragraph before our subject matter, which has nothing to do with this, but I am going to put it on the tape, and have you looking at your notes and paragraph 377 half way down, is a quote of a prayer that is a particular sage used to pray, and he said on concluding his prayer he used to add the following, Sovereign of the universe, it is known full well to you that our will is to perform your will, but what stops us from doing it? The answer is, the leaven in the dough that is the evil impulse that causes a ferment in the heart, that causes sin in the heart. That is what prevents us from performing the will of the Lord, because the mixed multitudes stick to Israel as does the leaven to the dough. What prevents us from serving God is sin in our heart, and that sin comes from the carnal mind, that is the Zohar’s way of saying the carnal mind is the mixed multitude, and we must be separated from the mixed multitude in order to serve God, and that separation can only come, as I explained earlier on this message, that separation can only come after Christ is added to us, because a house divided cannot stand. If we try to separated Cain from Abel, and you have to realize that there are two kingdoms growing out of Cain and Abel, and maybe I should put this on the board for you, if we try to separate Cain and Abel, we will just destroy ourselves, a house divided cannot stand, if we continue to live, if the process does not take our life, it could destroy our mind.
We must have the new man added to us, and it is my understanding at this time, that this issue of the new man being added to us, is where the Kabbalistic revelation breaks down, that is my understanding because I do not know everything that the Kabbalists know, I am told there is a great deal of knowledge that has never even been put down on paper.
What I do know, is that Noah from the Kabbalistic community has stood up in full stature since Jesus of Nazareth, that is what I do know, okay.
I am going to draw a conclusion from that information, and I just heard a voice in my head saying, How do you know, nobody has stood up since Jesus of Nazareth.
Let me qualify what I said, Nobody has stood up in full stature in the nature of God since Jesus of Nazareth, and that I know because when somebody stands up in the nature of God, okay, what do they do? They go out and they heal the sick and they deliver the oppressed, and they raise people up above the powers of death. We have had a lot of that in the last two thousand years, are least in the revival in the 1900s here in the United States and Pentecost, we have had a lot of healings, and a lot of demons cast out, but no one has been raised up above the power of death, so we see that what we have witnessed in what the church calls Pentecost, but it is really not the fullness of Pentecost.
What we have witnessed is a taste, a taste of the world to come. Paul tells us in the book of Hebrews, and I think it is chapter 1:6 if I am not mistaken, Paul tells us that those who have tasted of the world to come, and the miracles of the world to come, and still continue to sin, their land is cursed and they need the fiery judgment which delivers them from the mindset that continues to tear down everything that Christ is doing. We have received a taste of the world to come, but to say that we have entered into the world to come, means that we walk above death, and as far I know, nobody has done that in Christ since Jesus of Nazareth. Let me put that on the board for you.
Drawing #1, I have shown you the two towers, you see, there are really two towers that exists in people that have Christ, those who do not have Christ have one tower or one arm withered you see, Jesus went around healing and casting out demons and doing good, and one of the good deeds he did was to heal a man’s withered arm, this is, I mean maybe there was a man whose arm was physically withered, I do not know, I am not saying that is not true, okay, but Jesus also went around and healed the withered arm called Abel by grafting Christ. I do not know exactly what Jesus was doing, I guess He could not have been grafting Christ because he had not been glorified yet, but certainly imparting an imputed Christ to these people, and re-establishing the tower of the right side, or another way to say it is by re-establishing the right column in the people.
Everybody that exists in this world has a left column which is Cain, Leviathan, and the Serpent, which is the world to come of the immortality of this divided age, there is a world that is promised by the Serpent in this divided age, and that is the world where the ascended masters live. I do not really have a confirmation from the Lord yet, but I believe it is true, I believe that there are human beings who indulged in a deep level of witchcraft in their lifetime, and that today they have an existence outside of the body, and they are experiencing the immortality of this age, and that is what that line means, the Serpent is above the line, that is another world okay, it is the astral plane, it is the world of Yetzirah of the other side, the immortality of this divided age, and we see between the two towers, the great gulf that we read about in Luke 16:26 in the parable of the rich man. We also see that Satan is the spirit who is present both in Cain and Leviathan.
The Spirit of Christ is present with Abel and Christ, and I think the Spirit of Christ is still up there with the Lord Jesus, but I am not sure, but I showed it that way, and we see a revelation of a New Testament Scripture, Matthew 24:40, two were in a field, two were in an energy field. If you think that, that Scripture means that there were two people in a corn field, I do not want to make you feel bad, but I want to raise your consciousness because there was a time that I thought it was a corn field, and today I confess that I was naive. No, they were in one energy field, what does that mean? That Cain and Abel are one symbiotic entity, they cannot be divided. They are one energy field. This indivisible energy field was divided, the Lord took one and the other was sent in to the wilderness.
For the longest time the atom was indivisible, and then the day came that the atom became divisible, the atom was split and we now have atomic power. The indivisible magnetic field called Cain and Abel is divided, or is divisible in Christ Jesus, Hallelujah. Then we see also that the spiritual scapegoat consists of two goats, and we read about the spirit, that the scapegoat being two goats in Leviticus 16:8, the two goats are Cain and Abel. The Lord takes one, the Lord takes Abel, and leaves the other Cain for Satan, and that is Matthew 24:41, two women were grinding, both Cain and Abel are female, but Jehovah came and said, Abel, you have authority over Cain, that makes you Abel male in relationship to Cain, but they are both female.
I have authority over you, I am spiritually male to the people that study under me, but I am a spiritual female, how do I know I am a spiritual female? I still get sick and die. Spiritual males, full grown spiritual males do not die, I hope you know those of you that have had sons, that you may have a male child, but that male child is female, for all intents and purposes he when he is young, he has no muscles, he has no power, he is subject to his mother and his father, so from the point of view, he is very female until he grows up.
Two were grinding, and that word “grinding” signifies laboring, it signifies slavery, Cain and Abel are enslaved out in this world, the Lord took Abel, and left Cain to Satan, praise the Lord, any questions or comments? Let us take a picture of that and we will start commenting on the Zohar.
We are going to comment on a section in the Zohar called the section of Phinas, and this section headlined, the scapegoat, the liver, and the heart, section 378, “Again, and the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities”, that is a quote of Leviticus 16:22,
Leviticus 16:22, “And the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities.”
This does not say the scapegoat, so when we see the word goat rather than scapegoat, that means we have to find out which goat the Scripture is talking about because the scapegoat consists of two goats, amen? Okay. I want to suggest to you that this goat is Abel, that the Scripture is talking about Abel, this goat shall bear upon him all of their iniquities, and we are told that the Lord Jesus Christ has carried away all of our sins, how does Jesus Christ carry away our sins? This is a great mystery, that most of the church does not even understand. The way Jesus Christ carries away our sins, is that He has ascended on high and He is pouring out of his spirit upon all flesh, and grafting the sperma of His life to our spiritual being, and that seed of Christ is growing up to be a mature, is cleaving to Abel and maturing and increasing in power on a regular basis for those who are pursuing the Lord, and it is the Christ in us that carries our sins away, how does Christ in us carry our sins away? Christ in us is dealing with Cain in us, and bearing the burdens of our sins, what does that mean? Christ in us is facing up to the sins of our fallen nature.
When Christ in us matures in us to the, and I do not know how to describe it to you how you determine when Christ has matured in you enough, for you to start carrying the sins of other people, all that I could tell you is that you will know it when it happens to you.
How do you know that Christ in you is carrying, or bearing the sins of other people? When you start experience persecution for righteousness sake, but now you better be careful brethren, because I have seen a lot of Christians being persecuted because their sinners and they think it is for righteousness sake.
You better get before God and get a witness from spiritual elders, not necessarily elders in the church that have not yet entered into this spiritual walk, you have to find a spiritual elder.
What is a spiritual elder? Someone who is already bearing the burden of other people’s sins. Bearing the burden of someone else’s sins, praying for somebody that is sick, or praying for somebody that has a spiritual problem, in Pentecost can be the beginning of that, but you have to look at your motives.
I know a lot of well let me say it this way, if you are praying for somebody’s rebellion, that they should be delivered from rebellion because their rebellion is tormenting you, you are not praying in righteousness, you are praying out of your carnal mind, you are praying to deliver yourself, so the persecution you get from that person is not for righteousness sake.
When you are involved with somebody and bearing their sins and they are sinning against you, and you stay in that relationship, because Jesus Christ has put you in that relationship and you know that you are in that relationship to help them, then you are being persecuted for righteousness sake, and you are carrying that person’s sin, you are under the burden of that person’s sin, and the stronger Christ in you gets, the more people you are involved in a relationship like that with, I am involved with quite a few people, whose sins I carry, what does that mean? It means that when I have to give them a correction or tell them something, or for some reason, I upset them, or what I preach upsets them, or something I say to them personally upsets them, and they manifest an ungodly response towards me, and my response to their ungodly response is to forgive their sins, I carry the burden of their sins, because Jesus said, the man whose sins you forgive, are forgiven, and the man whose sins you do not forgive, are not forgiven.
When somebody sins against me, and I have done nothing but minister Christ to them, and I refuse to hold on to that sin, but forgive them, and continue to befriend them, and teach them and minister to them, I bear the burden of their sins. In my particular case, that burden usually manifests as a physical infirmity, or just simply spiritual and emotional oppression, I carry a lot of people on my back, okay.
From that point of view, I am going to suggest to you that is Abel, Abel the goat, now both Cain and Abel are goats, both Cain and Abel are female, both Cain and Abel are fallen, but Jehovah has chosen Abel and taken her unto Himself.
Abel is the goat that shall bear upon him all of the iniquities of Israel. When Satan wants to inform against Israel before the holy one, when Satan wants to complain to the Lord, so and so is doing such and such, and brethren, that is Satan in somebody’s mind, that is Satan is somebody’s mind going before the Lord and saying, so and so and is doing so and so, does anyone not understand what I am saying?
And he bears all of the sins that he can carry, okay now we are talking about a godly person, whose motives are godly towards the people he is involved with, which people are attacking him either out of the conscious mind or the unconscious part of their mind, when Satan in that man who is attacking the righteous man wants to inform against their pastor or whoever that righteous person is, wants inform me, if someone in the congregation is complaining about the pastor, the pastor who is pouring his life for them, and a member of the congregation thinks they are being wronged by the pastor, and that member of the congregation goes before the holy one, blessed be he, and the holy one in the pastor, now assuming this pastor is a true son of God, because every pastor does not have Christ, we are talking about the spiritual pastor who is truly a son of God, and that pastor bears all of the sins that he can carry, that person is praying day and night that the Lord should tell the pastor to do something that, that person, that member of the congregation thinks is right and the pastor is resisting because they know it is not right, but that person is praying day and night putting their pastor before the Lord, when Abel, when Christ in that pastor becomes burdened and he bears all of the sins that he can carry, okay, eventually he becomes heavy.
In my case, it is more than one person, I am strong enough to carry several people, at this time but I pay a price, I pay a price in my emotions, I pay a price mentally, and sometimes like recently I pay a price physically, that I hope is rapidly changing, okay that I pray I am getting stronger, and will not be afflicted physically anymore.
Here is the mystery, the Hebrew word says, he becomes heavy, and Abel which is Christ in that man, bears all of the sins he can carry, all that, what does that mean? All of the accusation coming against the pastor, all of the accusation, all of the condemnation, all of the sin of that person, some may be a member of this congregation, some may not be a member of this congregation, whoever is praying against the pastor, talking against the pastor, declaring the pastor to not be of God, whatever, the Christ in that pastor or that man of God, bears the burden of the sins of the person or the persons that are praying in an ungodly manner, or talking in an ungodly manner against them.
Christ in the pastor becomes burdened. We are told that this Hebrew word that is translated “heavy”, that he becomes heavy, the Hebrew word is kaved, which word in Hebrew also means “liver”. I find that very interesting because the liver is associated with the Nephesh level of soul. We can translate this to say, When Satan wants to inform against Israel before the holy one blessed be he, and Christ, Abel in the man who is not doing anything wrong in this circumstance, bears all of the sins that he can carry, he does not strike back, he does not retaliate, he forgives their sins, that man of God will bear all of the sins that he can carry until he becomes Nephesh, until he comes to the Nephesh level of soul, until he becomes carnal, until his anointing is cast down, until he cannot raise up an anointing to preach or to teach.
We see that bearing the burdens of the sins of other people can rob us of the anointing, and as you all know here, I did not preach for six weeks, I had a small exhortation for the people in the group, but I did not preach on a tape, I did not preach this deep stuff for six weeks, not so much that I was overcome in my soul, but I was deceived, thinking I was so involved in office work and other things that I truly did not have time to study, until I finally realized the truth, that I was under a seduction in my mind, at which point, the Lord delivered me and the anointing returned here, but that happened, not only me but everybody that waits for my tapes and my messages were robbed for six weeks because I was bearing the burden of the sins of some people who have been informing on me to the Lord, they have been complaining to the Lord about me, and I have not retaliated or struck back in any ungodly way, I have not manifested in my carnal mind towards them, the burden became so heavy on me that it cast Christ in my down from the Neshamah level of soul, the Neshamah level of the soul is the mind of Christ, so I was cast down, my personally was cast down from manifesting the mind of Christ to manifesting the Nephesh carnal level of soul, what does that mean? It means I stopped preaching on this high level, and I gave all of my energies to office work, and do to office work, when we do office work, we do it out of the Nephesh level of soul, we do not do office work with the mind of Christ, and that is what happened to me just a couple of months ago.
That is a sign, if that happens to you, that you can recognize that you are backslidden, and it is a form of backsliding, although the Lord has told me many years ago, not to use that word backsliding because you backslide when you agree with sin. What happens with what we are talking about here is that you are overtaken, you are overcome by the spiritual powers, someone else’s continuous dripping of complaints against you to the Lord, you are overtaken; it is not a backsliding. That is one of the signs that you may be, you may have been called into the group of people that carry or bear the burden of the sins of Israel, you see.
I do not know if I made it clear to you, but the Scripture says, the one whose sins we do not forgive are not forgiven, what does that mean? That means when you know that someone is persecuting you and you have done nothing wrong and they are persecuting you because you are standing in Christ, if you do not forgive their sins, they are turned over to Satan for the sowing and reaping judgment, what does that mean?
It means, listen brethren this is really important, when somebody sins against you, if you forgive their sins, Christ will somehow work this for their good, Christ in your mind will work it for their good, if you do not forgive their sins, Satan in your mind will punish them. I want to tell you something, if you are anywhere in Christ, if you have any kind of power in Christ at all, and Satan in your mind punishes somebody that they have really done that is really wrong, you can hurt them really, really, really bad, okay.
This is why, the Lord will not give His power to someone whose carnal mind is still doing whatever it wants to do, someone whose carnal mind is doing whatever it wants to do, because you, the personality joined to Christ, refuse to look at the activities of Satan in the unconscious part of your mind, so she is out there doing whatever she wants, the Lord is not giving you power brethren, He is not doing it. Why? Because it is the will of God that every man should come to the Lord, that no one should perish, and He is not going to have people that He has given His power to, manifesting Satan and destroying the people that He died to save.
Praise the Lord, okay, let us go on. We see that someone who is bearing the sins of Israel can be overburdened, and when he is overburdened, what happens to him is that he is cast down from the Neshamah level of soul to the Nephesh level of soul. What does Christ or Abel in the individual do when he is cast down like that? When the burden which is the iniquities that he bears on his shoulders are too heavy for him, what does he do?
We have a reference here, Psalms 38:4, we will not turn to it now, what does he do? He, Abel, Christ, like an ass ascends to a high mountain. Sheila how can you refer Christ or relate Christ to an ass? Brethren, this is the whole principle of God in the flesh. The ass is the human side of us. When Christ is cast down, Christ is not existing in a vacuum, Christ is my new man, Christ is married to the ass that I am. My personality and my physical body is an animal, and Christ in me is married to this animal, and we are one. When Christ is cast down, it has to affect me, it affects my emotions, it affects my feelings, it affects my mind, it affects my body, it affects me.
Once I realize, or once Christ realizes that He is cast down, the ass side of him, which is my personality starts to climb back up again. Listen brethren, I did not start to be restored until the ass, my personality, recognized that I had been, that Christ in me had been cast down, see. You have to recognize that you have been cast down.
What does He do? He, like an ass, ascends into a high mountain. What did I do when I was cast down? I started to pray. How do you ascend into a high mountain? The mountains are the three columns. I started to ascend when I realized that I had a problem and I went before the Lord and I asked Him for restoration, the ass part of me, the personality started to pray, and that was how Christ was raised up again.
Like an ass He ascends into a high mountain, and I think we are told in another place that the three columns are the high mountains, and in one of the verses that we dealt with earlier this morning, we were told that He ascended into the left column of judgment, and just as an aside, just remember that Jesus was always ascending in to a higher mountainous place.
What that would mean was that Jesus was always ascending to bring down judgment, to bring down the judgment that would break the powers of the other side. Like an ass He ascends into a high mountain, and when he gets near to the top, now He is ascending the left column okay, and when He gets there to the top, and what is the top? Binah is the top, okay, and He wants to climb up a little bit more, either to Chokhmah or to Keter, that is left for him, the weight of the burden overcomes Him and He falls. Let us go over that a little bit.
This human being, who carries the Christ, and has been cast down for righteousness sake, starts to climb back up again, He starts to call out to the Lord Jesus to help Him, because the sins of the other person’s mind are killing him, okay, I have been in that position where the sins of someone’s mind were killing me, so He cries out to the Lord Jesus, starts climbing up the left side, the left column, seeking for the sowing and reaping judgment to assist Him, why? Because forgiving the person’s sins has not helped the other person, okay.
There are people right here in the ministry, that if they do something wrong and I go to them, even if they rise up against them initially, when I tell them they have done something wrong, so that corrective judgment, me carrying their sin, me not seeking to punish them, but to teach them, to tell you that you have done something wrong, which correction results in you backing down, means that me carrying your sin has delivered you, but if you have somebody praying against you who will not receive your correction, and their continuous burdening on you cast you down, you have to cry to the Lord Jesus to assist you because the other person’s mind, unrighteous mind is killing you. That is what this means.
As an ass and as humanity, He starts to ascend up into a high mountain, and when He gets near to the top, when He approaches Binah, which is where the supernatural power to Jesus Christ is Binah to us, that is where the supernatural power of the Lord Jesus Christ lies, and He approaches the Lord Jesus, seeking to join with the Lord Jesus to give Him strength, and He wants to climb up a little bit higher to get to Chokhmah, actually where I believe He wants to get to is the Keter, because the Keter is Arik Anpin, and Arik Anpin is pure mercy, pure mercy.
This person who is carrying the Christ, who really wants to help the other person, is seeking the power of the Keter of Arik Anpin, to break the powers of darkness over the person that is causing them to sin against the person who is in Christ, He is reaching for the Keter, that is my opinion here. He wants to climb up a little bit higher than Binah, because Binah is judgment, you see there is judgment in Binah, so the righteous man does not want to hurt the unrighteous man, he will take the judgments of Binah if necessary, but he prefers the judgments of Arik, which are pure compassion, you see. The judgment of Arik will cast a demon out, that is what Jesus did, okay, He saw the woman in adultery, and He just, well the Scripture says He rewrote her programming, but whatever was there, He did not punish her at all, see, but He delivered her, He stopped her from doing the evil that she was doing, see.
When someone in Christ is carrying these burdens ascends as high as Binah, there is judgment in Binah, and that is what I mentioned to you, and that is what I told you about at the beginning of this message, if someone is attacking a son of God who is carrying their sins, and the son of God cannot throw off that burden, cannot bring the sinner to repentance so that they willingly give up their ungodly activity, and that son of God is being afflicted and cries out to the Lord Jesus Christ for assistance, but can only ascend as high as Binah, judgment will fall on the sinner that is attacking the righteous man, some dog, and this is a parable now, a dog will bite their leg so that they take their mind off of the righteous person and start dealing with whatever is causing them pain, that is what happens when the carrier of the burden ascends as high as Binah.
The carrier of the burden if they are truly in God will seek to ascend to Arik, who will simply deliver the person without any negative consequences at all. We are told here that as He climbs, He reaches the top which is Binah, and He wants to go a little further to get to Arik for the pure compassion and the complete deliverance of the person, but the weight of the burden overcomes Him and He falls, and tumbles down to the bottom.
We see now, remember Abel is the root system of Adam, and Christ is the resurrection Adam, so as Abel climbs up the left column, it is literally Adam being restored to his greatness in that person.
Wherefore when Christ is cast down, if He gets as far as Binah and He cannot go any further, He tumbles down to the bottom which is Malkhut or His Nephesh level of soul, and with the weight of that burden of that person’s sin, of that person’s ungodly prayers pressing on him, all of his bones are broken into pieces until not a single limb in Him remains whole.
What that is talking about, is the building or the resurrecting of Adam in the individual. This has not happened to me in a long time, but it has happened in me in the past, that Christ in me was cast down so completely, I was so cast down so completely by other people’s, by the witchcraft in other people’s minds, that I would be carnal for weeks at a time, and sometimes the witchcraft would put me to bed. Adam would be completely flattened, but the whole point is that every time Adam is destroyed, the Lord Jesus Christ raises Him from the dead, because we have a new covenant, because it is Christ in us the hope of glory, okay, that root remains and the Lord Jesus Christ comes and raises Him from the dead.
That has happened to me, it has not happened to me in a long time, but I have been carnal for two weeks. I remember preaching years ago, I was telling you all about this maybe ten or more years ago, that it is like a child, it is like a one year old child that just started to walk, it could be running around the house like a road runner, but once they fall, they cannot get up until the adult picks them up, and I was in that condition for a long time, but praise God I have not fallen down that far, and I hope it never happens again.
Let us go on. Thus, too, did it happen to Samael and Serpent, which are liver and the lobe of the liver. Samael and Serpent, they are the evil inclination and the partner of the evil inclination who is the harlot, whence every daughter of a strange god is called a harlot. Let us talk about this now. I believe what this means is, that the same thing can also happen to Samael and the Serpent. What is that? That Samael and the Serpent, when they are ascended, okay, can be burdened or pressed by the mind of the righteous man, the righteous mind of Christ, and cast down, and we have a lot of teaching about that when we were still teaching the doctrine of Christ, about the Fiery Serpent to the point where she is called swine, and being cast down, we have an account of that, we have two accounts of that of Jesus casting down the swine, and the swine is the ascended Fiery Serpent. If the Lord lets me, I would really be interested in translating those Scriptures that talk about the swine being cast down, as matter of fact, I looked it up, I looked one of those Scriptures up in the Interlinear Text, and it was very, very interesting, so I would not be doing it tonight, I think we will just have one more part on this message, we should be able to wind it up with a part two, but I will really like to do an alternate translation of that account of the highly demonized man and the swine being cast down.
You know, did you ever stop to think about why the townspeople would want Jesus to leave? Did you ever ask yourself the question, you know, why they would tell Him to go away because the hogs fell off of the cliff? Maybe they got mad at Him because their livestock was killed you know, I do not know, I mean it really does not make all that much sense, does it now? Does it really? That the pigs fell off of the cliff and all of the townspeople, they were all spiritual enough to know what happened, they all figured out that the demons came out of the highly demonized man and went into the pigs and the pigs fell off of the cliff, and it was Jesus’ fault and they wanted Him to go away. If you stop to think about it, does that make any sense? No it does not (chuckle), well I am not going to talk about it anymore until I actually do the translation, but it is very interesting what the Lord showed me.
Let us finish this up here. Thus too, did it happen to Samael and the Serpent. In other words, it is possible for the same experience to happen to Samael and the Serpent, that when they are ascended, they can oppressed by the middle column and cast down. Here we are told that Samael and the Serpent are the liver and the lobe of the liver. I do not know about you but I never heard of the lobe of the liver until I started doing these studies but apparently there is some kind of organ, it is something that is over the liver in our physical body, but I am not into anatomy enough to know what it is, and I think in this commentary it tells you, it gives you some suggestions as to what the lobe of the liver is, but I do not have the place here and it is very late, and I am not go looking for it right now.
We see this pair, Samael and the Serpent, they are the liver and the lobe of the liver, they are the evil inclination, so we are being told that the liver is the evil inclination and its partner, the lobe of the liver is the harlot, and we know that book of Revelation talks about the harlot, the whore of Revelation, and we know that book of Proverbs talks about the whore that seduces the godly man. We have the evil inclination which is the fallen nature, which is really primarily Leviathan, the fallen nature is Leviathan, and Leviathan’s partner is Cain, so we see that Cain is the harlot, but actually the harlot is more than Cain, except in the individuals where Christ is being raised, both Cain and Abel, the Fiery Serpent are the harlot, because Abel is completely overtaken by Cain, so the symbiotic twins, the energy field that contains two women, is the harlot that the Scripture speaks about.
Then we are told, it says, Whence wherefore because the evil inclination and its partner is a harlot, every daughter of a strange god is called a harlot. Brethren, every human being is a daughter of a stranger god. We are all daughters of a strange god, and if Christ is being raised in us and being born again in us, we are being born again as the son of the living God, but when we come into this world, we come into this world, as the daughter of a strange god. Humanity is the product of Eve’s union with the Serpent, and the Serpent is a strange god.
There is something interesting that I would like to point out to you here, I have noticed in the Zohar quite a while ago, that it looked this Samael, my original inclination was that Samael was Satan, but I saw, I read in couple of places that it was looking like Samael was Leviathan, and it looks like the Zohar was giving the dominion and the authority to Leviathan, and I recognized that, that is what the Zohar was saying, but I could not get any, it was my intellect was receiving it, that Leviathan is higher than Satan, but I have not been able to implement that change in my preaching because for so many years I preached that Satan was higher than Leviathan, so I could not make the switch.
In this teaching, I now understand how, I understand what my problem was, and I think I am going to explain this to you, and we are going to quit for tonight, because I think I am losing everybody here, either we will quit or we will take a break now, and see how it goes.
We are looking at drawing #2, now one of the things that puzzled me while I was still teaching the doctrine of Christ was that the Lord had revealed to me that the second energy center was Satan’s sea, and I really could not understand why Satan would be so low down, because I knew that she was manifesting, I knew that Satan ‘s waters cover the heart center, at least the lower heart center, and that she was up here as the swine in the sixth energy center, so I did not understand it, but I knew that Satan was predominate over Leviathan.
Now as we study Kabbalah, in a section that I have not read to you, and maybe we will read it on to the tape on Thursday, I am not sure, the point is made very clearly that the female has overtaken the male, and that is why there is the lobe over the liver, okay, the liver, I am not going to get into that right now, if I do it on the Thursday, I will do it on Thursday, there is a lobe over the liver, because the female has ascended above the male, and the female in the fallen creation is a harlot, see.
Satan’s place is down here in the second energy center which is characterized by water and deep caverns, the Fiery Serpent is in the third energy center, and that is the belly or the place where the appetites arise or the lusts of the flesh arise out of the Fiery Serpent, and the lower heart center, remember there is a lower heart center and an upper heart center, the lower heart center is inhabited by Leviathan, that is where the pride of man comes out of his heart, the pride of man comes out of his heart, and the fifth energy center, the throat energy center is where Leviathan speaks from, so Leviathan rises up from the lower heart center and manifests her voice, manifests his voice, Leviathan is female, but for this context, he is male in relationship to Satan, and speaks through the throat, when you speak with your carnal mind, that is Leviathan speaking through you, it is the pride of man.
The third eye, when your third eye, when you are manifesting any kind of witchcraft power at all, and most people do, most people manifest some envy, you know, envy is the most common form of the manifestation of Satan, and average people who are just average decent people, envy or hatred or any kind of spiritual wickedness okay, so when I was teaching the doctrine of Christ I really did not understand that Satan’s ascension from the second energy center to the sixth energy center, and then from the sixth energy center she pours out on the heart center, so I just let it go, because I did not understand it, and as I told you earlier when I saw in the Zohar that the Zohar was really indicating that Satan was the female to Leviathan, well I should have realized that, I have been preaching Leviathan is the Serpent’s male spiritual sexual organ, and I have been telling you that Satan is female for years, but yet, I just never stopped to address the issue that in spite of those two things, Satan was the dominate one over Leviathan, and now I understand from Kabbalah, that Satan was down here initially in the second energy center, but she rose up above her husband, and all that she is doing is repeating the sin that caused Adam to fall in the first place.
Satan is female, and Leviathan is male, but Satan rules over Leviathan just like the Serpent overtook Adam, the female is dominate in the fallen creation, the fact that the female is dominate in the fallen creation witnesses to fact that this world exists because the female overtook the male in the previous age. Everybody okay?
Apparently the entity called Samael, the Jews will not pronounce that name, they think that, or the Kabbalists will not pronounce that name, they think that it is wrong to pronounce the name of God, they think it is wrong to pronounce the name of angels, that when you pronounce it, it invokes or brings forth that spirit, and that it is disrespectful to speak the name of God, and that it is dangerous to speak the name of Samael, but I have no such instruction from the Lord, so I am not going to fall into that which may be a religious spirit for me.
We see that Samael is Leviathan, where initially you may have heard me on the tape saying that Samael is Satan, it appears that Samael is Leviathan, Leviathan and his female, the female is Satan. I better stop here because in some areas of the Zohar, it refers to his female as the Serpent, so I better stop here, okay, and let me just leave you with this, that these names overlap, because as Satan is down here in the second energy center, she manifests herself in the sixth energy center, so either Satan or Leviathan can be manifesting as the Fiery Serpent, or the Serpent, as the pole Serpent in the high centers.
It goes back and forth and you have to decide by context of the verse what manifestation of the Serpent you are talking about, Satan the Fiery Serpent, or Leviathan, or the swine, as far as I know there is no special name for Leviathan in the throat center, but Satan in the sixth energy center is called the swine.
You are going to be surprised when you find out, what that swine being cast down was all about, why the members of the town were so upset, you are going to very surprised.
Are there any questions or comments here? Have I confused anybody by saying that the names changed. Basically what I see in the Zohar, Samael is always mentioned, which appears to be Leviathan, and his female, Satan, sometimes is referred to as the Serpent, so there is a little contradiction there, we have broken it down a little further, the Zohar says, Samael and his female, Samael and the Serpent. Maybe when the Zohar says, Samael and his female, it is talking about Satan down in the second energy center, and when the Zohar says, Samael and the Serpent, it is talking about the manifestation of the Serpent in the third energy center, which is the Fiery Serpent. Do not get all hung up on this, I mean even if it turns out that I am wrong about these details, do not get hung up on it, because I have been teaching it for years. Everybody alright. Okay, we are going to call it quits for tonight and we will do a part two Lord willing on Thursday and I think we should be able to finish it up on part two, but if not we will do a part three.
God bless you all.
