10-17-16: Prophet

How do you know that the words of a Prophet ring True?

You test them against the Word of Hashem. If the Word of Hashem and the words of the Prophet are the same, then the Prophet is True.

How do you know that someone is a Prophet?

A Prophet does not come to the True Believers; for the True Believers, have already chosen a path, whether they are an Atheist, a Rabbi, a Catholic, a Jehovah’s Witness, or a Seventh Day Adventist. The Prophet comes only to the lost sheep of Israel, who fundamentally question whether the path that they are on, is the One True Path.

Who are the lost sheep of Israel?

Yisrael (יִשְׂרָאֵל), is a descendant of Jacob. Israel, is the English equivalent of the masculine name.

El (אֵל) is God, god, or gods. It is masculine, and is generally taken as plural. It references good, might, greatness, and strength.

El is shortened from ayil (אָ֫יִל), a masculine word which means, “ram.” It signifies strength, might, goodness, greatness, and power, the same as does el. It also references the creative force, as the source of the Seed of the Cosmos; i.e., God, or god, or gods. But you will not see anyone from any Church of man, mentioning that one to you.

Ayil has exactly the same meanings as does el, which should give one pause to think, Who, or What, was sacrificed as a replacement for Isaac, via the Burning Bush?

Yischaq (יִשְׂחָק ) is transliterated in English to Isaac. This masculine name means the same as Yitschaq (יִצְחָק), i.e., “he laughs.” He was the son of Abraham and Sarah, and the father of Yisrael. The name came from the root tsachaq (צָחַק), which ostensibly means, “to laugh,” whether in merriment, or scornfully. Associations are with caress, entertain, mock, poke fun at, joke around, and play.

So sacrificing Isaac, could actually have been a bitter-sweet act…

For he may actually have deserved it, for not taking the God of his father seriously. That is a possibility, which of course, would have been covered over by the Churches of man.

Ayil also has the associations of mighty man, lintel, post, tree, and oak attached to it. Which could mean that the Burning Bush, was a type of oak tree.

Think of Samson, the sun, the battlement, the east side, etymologically…

He was the Judge, the Support of Hashem, the Rod, the Branch, the Pillar of Punishment. And he killed more while blind than he ever did while sighted, by knocking down their temple’s two supports in one final act of strength. The total of his enemies dead during all of the many years of his fighting with the Philistines who he lived amongst, did not match the toll of that one last Act for YHWH.

Think of it…

The doorposts, and the lintel.

All three of them, smeared in blood – The blood of the Beam of Hashem, Samson.

Before you remove the splinter from another, first take out the Beam, which is blinding you.

Man put out his two eyes – But he could still See the Light, with his Third Eye.

His Third Eye, was the Lintel Above. And the Two Posts to either side were put out, with the Sharpened Tree of Hashem…

The Point of it All, hardened and sharpened black as the night, Within the Flames.

The Lintel Beam, always bears the whole load of the Temple…

Until the two posts are twisted out from below it.

Ayil comes from the same root as does the masculine uwl (אוּל), which means, “mighty,” and references strength. It can be applied to a tribal chieftain, a ram, a support, or any other strong tree or man. It comes from another Hebrew root which means to twist.

So the Curving Horn of the Ram, which was held fast by the twisting branches of the Burning Bush as a Sacrifice, needs to be considered as well.

It doesn’t tell you, does it?

That the Living Bush of Abraham and Isaac Upon Moriah, Within the Sight of the Lord, Is the same Burning Bush of Moshe Upon Horeb, the Desolation Which Brings the Wasteland?

For the Bush Which Burns, Holds the Ram of the Sacrifice, Hedged all about with the Thorns. The Scapegoat, Who man blames for everything…

It is YHWH Himself, the Hidden Name, the Presence Herself, Seen.

It is the Giving Up, of those Judged.

Israel means, “he will rule as God.” Which, prefigures the role of Moshe…

Seen to Enter the Sanctuary…

Seen Beneath the Veil, as God Himself, Upon the earth itself.

Who Is the One, Between Heaven and the earth?

The One Who Talks With YHWH?

The One Within the Presence of Shekinah?

The One Who Speaks the Hidden Unknown Name, Summoning Forth Hashem?

Is it not Always the Prophet?

The Very Friend of Hashem?

Jisrael is another name for both Jacob and his descendants. It comes, interestingly, from sarah and el.

Sarah (שָׂרָה) means, “to contend, persist, exert, or persevere.” An associated word, is to wrestle. Which did not bode well for Peace, within the tent of Abraham…

And which prefigures Miriam and Aaron, colluding against their kinsman, Moshe.

And no one is more scoffing of the Word, is more insistent, or is more of a busy-body within the pages of the Bible, than is the conniving Sarah, who helped her younger son Jacob to steal his twin brother’s Rightful Blessing, via outright deception.

Oh, Esau did not value his Birthright enough; that much is for certain. But his Blessing, he was outright and most certainly cheated out of.

Yaaqob (יַעֲקֹב), transliterated in English to Jacob, was the twin son of Isaac, along with Esau. This masculine name has much the same meaning as aqab (עָקַב), which means, “to follow at the heel of (like a dog which bites you right in the ass), to be crafty, to attack sneakily, to circumvent, or to overreach your bounds”. It comes from the masculine word aqeb (עִקְּבֵי), which means, “heel, footprint, of the hind part of.” Associated with aqeb are hooves, steps, trails, tracks, the rear guard, one lying in wait to ambush, or the last one.

Which makes Jacob, the heel-grasper, or the supplanter of his brother – The snake in the grass, you might say, who craftily grasps the back heel of the mighty red-haired horse who passes by him, unaware, upon the path.

Think of Jacob’s Blessing of Dan…

Who, apparently, was a lot like his old man, in many ways.

Or, perhaps, we should think of the mighty Greek warrior, Achilles, wounded, stung in the heel by the arrow, by the fang of Paris? And think of Esau as one of the ancient, invading sea peoples, as a Parisianus?

For it is only by craft and ambush and collusion with the mother hill country Canaanite tribes, that Jacob could hold his own against the more newly-arrived Philistines.

Jacob, like aqab, essentially means, “to deal craftily, to take from behind (to heel, to trip up), to restrain (through craft, grasping from behind), to supplant utterly in the land, and to take it, and to stay there.”

Who does the Prophet come for, other than the son of Sarah, the grasper from behind, the wrestler, the seeking serpent within the greenery?

And Who does Israel wrestle with, and bind until the dawn, before he can become Israel?

Other than, YHWH Himself?

And Who is the Angel of the Lord Come Down, the Red Star, the Doer of the Many Things, other than Jacob’s own man-child brother?

Who is the horse of Hashem, the wild ass, the hairy one of the wilds of the world, other than Esau?

Who is the restless one, the wander in the Desert of Zin, the one who seeks Peace but cannot find it, other than Esau?

It is the lost sheep, the lost flock Crossed Over, who have been led into the byways, and who have had all of their strength twisted into the grasping flames of those mighty oaks who have led them astray…

That is the one, who the Prophet has come for.

The Prophet, has come to liberate el, the ram, the child of Abraham, from the Sacrifice…

For the one who laughs, and who mocks, who scorns to this very day, has always made the captives in all of the byways, their sacrifices in their stead.

And this is why the Prophet Isaiah (1:10-31, KJB) has railed:

“Hear the word of the LORD, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah.

To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the LORD: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.

When ye come to appear before me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts?

Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.

Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them.

And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.

Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;

Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.

Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:

But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

How is the faithful city become an harlot! it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers.

Thy silver is become dross, thy wine mixed with water:

Thy princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loveth gifts, and followeth after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them.

Therefore saith the Lord, the LORD of hosts, the mighty One of Israel, Ah, I will ease me of mine adversaries, and avenge me of mine enemies:

And I will turn my hand upon thee, and purely purge away thy dross, and take away all thy tin:

And I will restore thy judges as at the first, and thy counsellers as at the beginning: afterward thou shalt be called, The city of righteousness, the faithful city.

Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with righteousness.

And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together, and they that forsake the LORD shall be consumed.

For they shall be ashamed of the oaks which ye have desired, and ye shall be confounded for the gardens that ye have chosen.

For ye shall be as an oak whose leaf fadeth, and as a garden that hath no water.

And the strong shall be as tow, and the maker of it as a spark, and they shall both burn together, and none shall quench them.”

What does the Prophet say about the One True Path?

Actually, absolutely nothing, to the True Believers – For He simply Walks Upon it, all alone.

What does the Prophet say about the Kingdom of Hashem to the lost ones, who suffer to come Unto Him?

“Let the children Come Up, Unto Me.”

And what does the Prophet tell all of the dead round stones, unseeing, unhearing, unfeeling, within the Wilderness of Zin?

“Repent! For the Kingdom, Is already at hand!”

And just where Is this Kingdom of the Name?

It Is, Within the Prophet…

And, it Is, Without Him.

It Is Right Before the lost, a Light Within the Veil of the Darkness…

It is a Leveled Place, Upon the Smoothed Path.

And where Is the One True Path?

It Is wherever the Prophet Himself, Chooses to Walk.

Follow Within the Footsteps…

Seek, to Find the Trail.

What?

Do you really think that Hashem has given up on you?

That He has abandoned you Unto the Flaming Pit?

That there can ever be a Last Prophet, yet no Last Days Come Forth?

Then how is it said, that a man lives a thousand lifetimes? But yet, a coward dies a thousand deaths, each and every day?

How will you know that you have a Prophet Standing Before you?

When the people deign to choose between the Harlot and the Beast…And they say that such a choice, either way, is the only right and proper one…

When the people elect for themselves, the stones and the dry wadis and the blowing sand of Zin, over the Land Flowing With Milk and Honey…

And when they lift up their dressed-up and painted, wooden and stone-hearted idols above themselves, and raise them up unto all of the High Places amongst them, and nail them all fast, against the Whirlwind…

Then, you will Know, that you already have the Prophet Standing Right Before you.

When the people choose a man as their king, and a woman as their queen, over the Kingdom and the Day of Hashem…

When the Prophet and Hashem both turn away from all of them, and show them their back-sides…

Then, you will Know, that the Unseen Truth is now Revealed.

When the words of the Prophet Burn the rotting flesh off of the bones of the deaf, dumb, and blind, the crippled, unclean, and mortal men…

And the people all say, “It is because of the Prophet! He is the One Who Is to blame! If He were not to Speak the Name, then everything would go well with us! So, let us seize Him, and throw Him over the cliff! And pile stones up over Him, so that His Word can never Cut us, can Burn us no more!”

When the words of the Prophet Burn Away the Chuppah, Remove the Covering of the Veil, Remove the Scales From Before the Eyes, as do the Word of the Sword of the Very Tongue of Hashem…

Then, do you find a Living Prophet of God Before you.

Stop; look; listen…

And the first death, will no longer have any hold over you.

Do not allow the Prophet, to throw you over the Cliff…

Do not allow the Very Stones, to bury you Within them.

Do not fear the corruption, the wasting away of the mortal flesh; rather fear the Chill of the Indrawn Breath, which snuffs out the Light of the Living Lamp Poured Within.

Naked art thou ever Seen, before thine own God…

Die first, Within the Womb of the Darkness…

And Become Reborn, The Water Within the Cup, Within the Coming Light, East of the Gate of Gan Eden.

“Wake Up! And Come Out of Her, My Child!”

Shalom.

SHADOW GOVERNMENT — BOOK 75 — LIGHT

Ain Soph Aur (The Wisdom of Knowing the One Light):

You guys might find most of this to be interesting.

You might think of this as the Nut-brown Husk, the Shell of Kabbalah, which contains the Kernel, the Seed, the Germ, of the Truth.

Gnosticism was destroyed by the Christian Church precisely because it does not need a Priesthood, nor a Church. At least, they think that they destroyed it…

But it just went underground…

Parts of Gnosticism are derived from Kabbalah, and also later influenced Kabbalah. You can find most of the stuff on the link below, and in the Sefer Yetzirah, or the Book of Creation.

http://gnosticteachings.org/faqs/kabbalah/781-sephiroth.html

What could best be called the Universal Array, has been designed to clarify; however, in actuality, it pulls the wool over your eyes. The proper, understandable Array looks like this:

8-12-16-Ten Sephirot 15

Nine Lines, Five Faces, Three Pillars, are visible. The Fourth Pillar, is seen as but a Point, which the Kabbalist would call Keter, or Crown. Keter Elyon, is Keter Malchut. The Crown of the Beginning Spirit, is linked to the Crown of the Kingdom Come. And thus is the First, also the Last…

In the simplest terms of the description of the Universe, Keter, corresponds to the Number One.

Ten Points, are seen; Two are Hidden, are unseen. And the Fifth Pillar, of the Two Points Hidden Become One, is Hidden itself, within…

 

Ain – The Absolute, of Null.
Soph – Without Limit.
Aur – Light.

Of course, you are more used to seeing something a little more like this:

8-12-16-Ten Sephirot 02

Which is derived from a type of hypercube:

8-12-16-Ten Sephirot 03

Which is composed of three unfolding and infolding cubes:

8-12-16-Ten Sephirot 04   8-12-16-Ten Sephirot 05    8-12-16-Ten Sephirot 06

And the two below, once wedded together, become the one flesh, the One Spirit, the One Above.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Only Ten of the Twelve Points are visible, and are Numbered:

8-12-16-Ten Sephirot 07

For the Origin, and Negative and Positive Infinity, and Null, can only be seen and heard with the heart and the mind of the Chosen One; they are not visible, nor are they audible, to the eyes and ears of mortal men.

And Positive Infinity and Negative Infinity, approach unto One another, to return to the Origin; and the Three, become the One…

But the Null, remains always, the Null.

 

 

From this, from the Twelve Points, can be derived the Open Vessel, the Cup of the Eight Facets, of the Six Sides, of the One Base Sealing them, with the One Above Yet Unseen:

8-12-16-Ten Sephirot 08

For to close over the Vessel to the eyes and to the ears, is to find death fast upon you.

And the One Above, is but the Door which has been long Open unto the Saints, yet is fast shut tight, upon men…

 

 

 

 

 

What you are really used to seeing, is something more like this:

8-12-16-Ten Sephirot 09

Which you would call the Tree of Life, the Etz Ha Chayim.

The Ain Soph Aur, or the Eternal Light of Null, is above the Etz Ha Chayim. And it is the Light, which gives Life to the Tree.

It would perhaps be better said, that the Light is behind the Tree…

That the Light, is behind everything.

You are to know, that ultimately, there are no fixed positions for the Light, and for the Tree. For everything, is relative to the perspective…

The Ten Visible Points, or the Ten Sephirot which describe the Universe, all spontaneously derived from the Ain Soph Aur. It would best be said, “derive,” as All is Now. There is no Beginning nor End, nor time nor space, for the Ain Soph Aur, for the Null.

In the Action of Description, is found the process of creation…

Is found the Demiurge…

Is found the Aeons, and the Archons, of the Gnostic.

Anything which is imagined, now already exists, and sprang instantaneously from the Ain Soph Aur fully-formed, at the Very Beginning. For the Demiurge, is but Creative Thought itself. The Realms, the Worlds, the Spirit Rulers…All were at once created, within First Thought.

The Ten Sephirot, form the Living Stump, the Blooming Rod, the Green Branch, the Whispering Leaf of the Terebinth, which overshadow and cover everything. This is the Hedge, of the Psalmist.

The Eleventh Sephirot, is the Root, which springs forth from and which splits the Rock into the Two Pieces. And from between the Two Pieces of Duality, do the Living Waters pour forth.

For the Root, is embedded in the Rock; the Origin of the Root, is the Rock.

As Above, so below…

Yet still, are Two Sephirot hidden. And they are Null, and Origin…

Null cannot be seen, but by He Who Penetrates the Veil. And He Who Penetrates the Veil, is Origin.

From Origin, has the Root sprung forth in creation, from the Rock. For Origin, is Procreation; Origin is the Hidden Seed, in the Unseen Crack in the Rock.

And the Red Skin Covering Him Over, is First Adam.

The Root, is the Very Beginning of the Fourth Column…

The basic, core idea I will be driving at can also be represented by Eight Lines, Five Faces, and Five Points (The Ten, and the Eight, of Perfection):

8-12-16-Ten Sephirot 10

Which is not only the Four Corners and the One Risen Above them, but also the Four Faces in the Four Directions, and the Foundation. And this is the pyramid of many layers, of many stones shaped by the hand of man, each one rising above the other.

But upon the Very Top, is found a miniature version of all that is below, which contains all that is below. And this Capstone, Crowns the entire shaped creation, and preserves the entire Universe which is beneath Him, and which supports Him. He does so, by His Very Presence.

And this Capstone fits nowhere else, but upon the Very Top. For it is the Stone Unshaped by human hands; it is the Hidden Stone, which the builders amongst men, have always rejected…

It is the Hidden Seed, of the Rock…

From which everything describable by the Ten Numbers, the Ten Sephirot plus Origin, has sprung forth.

Origin, has no place…
Origin, cannot ever rest.
For Origin, is everywhere, at all times…

Origin, is the Eternal. Origin, is Beginning and End; Origin, is Light and darkness; Origin, is all and nothing, become One. The Universe Unfolds, and Infolds, from and into Origin. Origin is Chaos, and all Order…

For it is Origin, Who has been given the Keys to the Gate of Gan Eden, and the Door of Heaven, and the Chains of the Abyss.

The Capstone, if you will, is the thumb, to the fingers of the Hand. And without the thumb, the fingers can accomplish very little. And the Hand of Hashem, is thus not visible, to men.

8-12-16-Ten Sephirot 11

As Above, so below…

And yet, does the Null Remain Above, Behind, Below, Before, to the Left and to the Right, the Chuppah Forever Unseen, by men.

The Spirit Come Down to inhabit the clay unseen, to be Covered Over within the vessel of clay, is the Spirit of all men; it is the same Spirit Contained Within the Thirty-Six Righteous Ones.

And the Spirit Risen Up, Gone Up, Taken Up, Hidden Within the Chuppah of the Cloud, within the Holy Sanctuary, within the Ark, within the Rolled Up Small Scroll, within the Name, within the Word, is the Spirit of Hashem; it is the same Spirit Contained Within the One Anointed Mashiach.

His head is within the Cloud; from there, do His eyes burn through the Veil, and see all of the many ways of men. And His feet, are as molten bronze; and the Smoke Rises Up from their Place, as His Shining White Mantle. The White, covers His hand; and Hashem declares His Hidden Hand, to be clean.

For His Place, is the Temple upon the clay of the earth He has Come Out of; His Place, is the Island upon the sea, which He has Risen Up out of.

His Place, is overshadowing the sands, and the sea, and the earth. For He is the Overspreading Green Branch; He is the Wing Extended, over all…

All of this, has Hashem given to Him, as His Inheritance. All Power, and Authority, all Crowns, are His.

Does not the Spirit always say, “Come”?

The Fifth Column, hidden within the Foundation Stone and the Capstone, combines them both into the One. For the Fifth Column, is the Son, received His Inheritance from His Father…

He is become the Singularity…

For the Null, Is within Him, Is without Him.

From Null, is Come Singularity. And Singularity, “Is.”
From Singularity, is Come Origin. And Origin is, “I Am.”
From Origin, has Come the Sephirot. For the Sephirot are, “I Am, the I Am.”
From the Sephirot, comes All Action, and All Space, and All Time. And this One, these Five, these Three, are, “Here, I Am.”

“Is…I Am, the I Am…Here, I Am.” 1, 5, 3…

The One, is Hidden beneath the Chuppah of the Three Columns.  And the Four Angels, the Four Cherubim, the Four Living Creatures of the Four Faces, surround the Fifth, at the Center…

1, 3, 5…

And in the Wedding of the Bridegroom and the Bride, are the 153 and the 135, made into the One.  And with the breaking of the Vessel, and the release of the Fruit of the Vine, are not the 288 counted together, as but One?

The Lord helps Him, Who helps Himself. And the entire Universe, all of the creation, serves Mashiach, the Servant of all.

And there are many fish to be found, within the sea…

By the Still Waters, did Jacob seek his Rest. Like his father Isaac before him, Jacob lay down upon an Uncut Stone, and prepared himself for whatever Hashem had to offer him. For in the dreams of the New Day, Come Down many Visions, and the solutions to the problems which so vex men in their final waking hours.

And Jacob wrestled with the Angel; throughout the darkness of the long night, Jacob wrestled with the Spirit of himself. And he testified to the Angel, Who had seized him. And the Angel he could not best, nor Who could best him, Jacob would not let Go Up, until the Blessing of the Star of the Dawn Arose upon him.

And in his Vision, Jacob saw the Angels Coming down upon the Ladder; and he saw them Going up, and Returning to Heaven. And in the Morning Come, after the long night was ended, in the Thirteenth Hour, he Crossed Over.

For his mind had been Raised Up, upon the Uncut Stone. And he saw, and heard, and now understood, about the Burning Thorn, and the Angel of the Lord.

Jacob bowed low before Esau’s feet. And Esau took him by the hand, and said, “Do not do this thing, blood of my blood! Do not bow before me, my brother! But Rise Up, and greet me with a kiss! For am I not a man, just like you?

“Rise Up, and see me as I am! For you withheld from me in my weakness, and thus received my birthright; and you and our mother deceived our father, and stole his blessing from me.

“But look! Listen to me, my brother! Hear!

“Can you not see, that I, too, have become a Mighty Nation? And YHWH has given me the Birthright which is my own Just Due, come straight from Him; and the Father of us all, has given me His Own Blessing, which none could have ever taken from me.”

And Jacob gave Esau many Gifts; and Esau gave of his largess unto Jacob, in return. And they parted ways, as friends, as brothers, as the fathers of many Tribes.

But still, did Jacob mistrust Esau’s intentions; but Esau bore him no enmity, other than of this mistrust.

For had Jacob and their mother not conspired against him, would the Promised Blessings of Hashem, yet have Mantled his own shoulders? Would the world and everything in it, still have been given to him?

And Jacob, a Wanderer within the Land of Esau like Cain before him, within his mind and his heart, was become the Israel of the Promise; for he now understood about the Stars Come Down, and the Angels of the Lord Gone Up.

And long, did Israel sojourn in the Land of Esau…

For many generations did he sojourn there, until the Day when he Came Up.

Ten Faces; Ten Points; Sixteen Lines…

Eight Faces Showing, and Two Hidden, where Heaven and earth meet…And the Two, of Heaven and earth, of the Bridegroom and of the bride, become the One.

And Something New, is created…

Twelve Lines showing, and Six Points showing; for the Eight, have become the Four.

And from this, is derived the Ten, and the Twenty-Four, and the Thirty-Two, and the Thirty-Six. Four for Hashem, and Six, for men…

And yet, they are all but One…

As Above, so below.

8-12-16-Ten Sephirot 12

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And the Two, have become One. The Two Faces, one seen, One Unseen, are but the Two Faces of the same Gem, the both of them, Wedded together.

8-12-16-Ten Sephirot 17And from the Four Faces Visible in the Four Directions, is derived the Six Wings Upholding and Covering Over; One Above, and One Below; One Before, and One Behind; One to the Left, and One to the Right…

 

 

 

 

And From the Center, do the Two Wedded as One Spirit and flesh, create the Universal Array of the Ten Visible Points, and the Two Hidden Points. For they are the Finished Foundation Stone, and the Created-Perfect Capstone.

8-12-16-Ten Sephirot 14

And the Two, Infold upon the Center, to become the One. The Six Wings, Cover Over, as the Chuppah of the Wedding Bower.

And the One, is the Singularity, is the Center, is the Origin of the Universe. The One, is the Temple, is the Throne, is the Mercy Seat, Hedged all about, with the Many Facets of Green.

And what remains, but the Small Whisper, In the Six Directions? What remains, but the x- y- and z-, but the Six Perturbations of YWH, and the Seventh Seal, at the Center?

 

What remains, but the Singularity, the Nothingness, which contains everything?

What remains, is but the Promised Remnant…

Is but the Thirteenth Sephirah of the Thirteenth Hour; is but the Rod, the Root, the Germ, which splits the Rock asunder.

For the Singularity, is +∞, and −∞, and 0, and all which is contained within them. And are not these Three, all Unseeable, Undefined, and yet comprehensible? And is not Zero, whatever and where its Place in the Universe of space and time, always still the Origin?

For these are the Three Unseen, which describe the entire Universe. For they contain the Ten Sephirot within them…

And yet, they are all One…

It all depends upon your frame of reference; were you are, in the Universe.

“Here, I Am.”

And all Three, the One, The Ten, are contained within the Unseeable, the Unknowable, Null.

These are the Two Hidden Ones, the Powers Behind the Throne; the Null, and the Origin.

And the Origin, is the End…

The Ten Sephirot of Heaven (Spirit; the Three Spiritual Worlds) and earth (body; the one physical world) intercombine in the Universal Array. These are the Ten Visible Corners of the Two Cubes. Zero-to-nine, or one-to-ten; take your pick. But conceptually, one-to-ten, works better. These are the Two Tablets, and the Ten Commandments. The two hands folded in prayer, and the ten fingers. And so on…

To the left, are the Three Sephirot Who are Coming, as a lightning bolt; these are the Projections, wherein you can see the Chuppah over the Very Nature and Fabric of the physical world. These are the Veil, which is covering the Face. This is the instantaneous unfolding, unrolling, unsealing, the creation of the Universe; these are the x-, y-, and z- axes of the space-time continuum. This is also Righteousness, and Judgment, the Warrior Father, YHVH / YHWH. This is the Very Beginning, is Gan Eden, before the Fall.

To the right, are the Three Sephirot Who are Going, as holes; these are the Openings, the Doors, wherein you can see into the Very Nature and Fabric of the Spiritual Worlds. This is the infolding of the creation, the Universe, back into itself; these are the –x-, –y-, and –z- axes of the space-time continuum. This is also Love and Mercy, the Presence, Shekinah. This is the End Time, the Final Day, the Promised Land, the Inheritance, the World to Come, the Dawn of the New Day.

The Three Sephirot Coming, and the Three Sephirot Going, are the Six Seals. And at the Center, are they Wedded, into One…

They are bound and tied by their Tails at the Center, at the Origin.

At the Origin, is found the Seventh Seal, which wraps around the Six Tails in the Three Directions, and binds them and Seals them at the Center, which preserves the physical and Spiritual Worlds.

At the Center, at Origin, is found the Upper Man, of the Thirty-Six Righteous Ones. Through Him, have the worlds been created; because of Him, they have a reason to exist. Remove the Upper Man, Mashiach, from the equation, and the Universe will simply infold into the Singularity from whence it came; and both Heaven and earth, will instantly cease to exist.

So, do you see?

The Upper Man, has been with us from the Very Beginning. In every generation, does the Upper Man yet Return, Come Down, and Live…

The Seven Seals, represent the Upper of the Two Cubes of the Universal Array. For within Mashiach, are all of the Seven Seals contained. Mashiach holds the Universe together, at the Center. But He needs only to open His hand, and unbind the Chain from the Tails of the Six Sephirot, and they will Go Off in all directions. And Chaos will be unleashed upon the Universe, devouring all direction, all matter, all space, and all time…

The Lower Cube has Six Corners visible; these are the Six Visible Sephirot of the physical world. The Lower Cube, contains the Four Corners, and the Four Faces in the Four Directions; it is the Foundation Stone. The Wing pointing downward, the Lower Wing, is hidden beneath the Foundation Stone; the Wing pointing upward, the Upper Wing, is hidden beneath the Capstone. The Foundation Stone supports the Capstone above it, through its Four Faces and Four Corners, in the Four Directions.

The Foundation Stone, is synonymous with the parameters of the earth, and of man, and of the physical world.

The Upper Cube, has Five Faces showing; the Lower Face, or Lower Wing, covers over and shelters the Lower Cube. It is the Chuppah, the Veil, which hides Mashiach from Lower Man…

The wool, pulled over your eyes; or the scale of the Serpent, if you will.

The Upper Face, faces Hashem directly. It is Face-to-face with Hashem; this is the Shining of Moshe, and Mashiach, whenever He Comes. This is the red, and the white. This is the Upper Wing which shelters man from Hashem Himself. This is the Face of First Adam…

For Mashiach, is Hashem’s Appointed Counsellor, Councilor, and Mediator before the Throne, between Hashem Himself, and man.

The Foundation Stone, is the physical Temple. It is the Foot Upon the Earth, glowing like heated bronze.

The Capstone, is the New Jerusalem, descended from Heaven, as a Bright White Morning Star upon the Hill overlooking the Plain of Megiddo. It is the Head Within the Cloud, which sees through all with eyes burning like coals, descending like a Dove.

The Six Sephirot are YWH / YVH; YHW / YHV; WHY / VHY; WYH / WVH; HWY / HVY; and HYW / HYV. In their Coming and their Going from the Origin, in their expanding from the Singularity and then contraction back into it, the Six create, and destroy, the Twelve…

But the Origin at the Center, is always the Integral Constant of its Derivative, which is the Universe. And if you take enough integrals of the Origin, essentially, everything returns to the Constant. All of the Universe, in all of its Myriad Facets, in all of its Many Faces, reflects the Gem of its Origin…

And this is the Gem, The Emerald of Many Shades of Green, which surrounds the Eternal Throne.

For the Unseen Column, is the Throne of the Sanctuary, is the Mercy Seat Covered Over by the Wings of the Cherubim…

It is the Sanctuary, it is the Tabernacle, it is the Temple itself, Hidden beneath the Chuppah of the Smooth, Shining, Oiled, Horned Red Skin of the Pure One.

Upon the Mountain, all alone; within the Small Room, all alone; within the Wilderness, all alone; within the Desert; all alone…

Within the City, All alone…

All, is contained within the Anointed One, from between Whose feet, do the Living Waters flow forth.

Within His own mouth, is the Word come forth, which cuts to the left, and to the right. For YHWH has placed His Own Tongue, within the mouth of His Anointed…

And it is the Name, which He wears hidden, upon His side…

For the Two Swords are always enough, with which to Accomplish.

8-12-16-Ten Sephirot 15

Behind the Ten Sephirot, which are the Ten Visible Corners which describe the physical world, are the Two Hidden Corners, which give it Life. This makes the Twelve Sephirot, which form the Twenty-Four Lines…

And each of these Lines, is the Line of one of the Elders of the races of man. For the Children of the Elders, have filled up the physical world.

There are Sixteen Corners, and Twelve Faces, to the Two Cubes of the Universal Array. And they make up the Thirty. But you also have the Two Unseen Ones, Who are behind all…

Hashem, without and within; and Mashiach, within and without. They are the other Two Letters; they are the First, and the Last. They are the Four; Null, Zero, Negative Infinity, and Positive Infinity. They are the Four Become Two; they are the Two Become One; they are the One, found both within and without the Null.

The Truth of it all is, is that there is a Thirteenth Sephirah, which is the Seventh Seal…

Which is the Seed and the Root of the Rock, Risen Up within the Six Directions. Rooted within the Split Rock, From the World Below, He wraps around and binds and Seals the Six Sephirot, the Six Directions, of the Three Spiritual Worlds.

This One, has integrated the Ten Sephirot into Himself; and in So Doing, the Two Hidden Sephirot, the Two Cherubim of the Mercy Seat, have been Revealed, and have become Known to Him. And in So Doing, the Foundation Stone of the Lower Man, of this earth, of this physical world, and the Capstone of the Upper Man, of the Spirit, of the Three Spiritual Worlds, have been combined into the One…

The Two Stones, have folded into One another. And He Himself has become the Breastplate, which contains the Hidden Urim and the Thummin of Lightning and Thunders and Judgment, and of Love and Mercy and Forgiveness, plus the Twelve Revealed Foundation Stones. He has become the Columns before the Temple; the Four Corners, and the Center Risen Above Them. He Who has always been the Germ and the Seed and the Root and the Stump, has become the Shoot, the Green Branch, the Rod, the Small Scroll, the New Jerusalem, and the Temple itself.

He Himself, is the Hidden Fifth Column, at the Center of all…

He, is but the Point, the Origin, of the Singularity of the Null.

The Ain Soph Aur, the Spirit, the Star Come Down with and within Him, has become the Star without Him, as it Is, and always Was, and ever shall Be.

For the Two, are now One. And He Is, of an instant, born Mashiach.

At that moment, space and time cease to exist for Him…

And it is the End Time.

And the “Here, I Am,” is now contained within the “I Am, the I Am.”

For the “I Am, the I Am,” has now become the “I Am, Who I Am.” And the Upper Stone, the Capstone, the Stone Untouched by human hands, Upper Man, Heaven, has now combined with the Lower Stone, the Corner Stone, the Foundation Stone, Lower Man, earth itself. And the old earth and the old Heaven are no more, and are no longer separated; for they have both Passed Away, and have been Remade Anew, within Him.

And the One Who Stands Before the Throne, the Mediator, the Counsellor, becomes, as it were, the New Heaven, and the New Earth…

Which are now combined into One.

This, is the Thirteenth Sephirah…

The Bright Morning Star, of the Thirteenth Hour.

This is how all Power and Authority in both Heaven and the earth are given unto the One, Who was Chosen by Hashem from the Very Beginning, for this very thing. For He, of His own freewill choice, has chosen Hashem, above all.

Indeed; before He was even born, All, was already His.

For All, has sprung from Him; from the Hidden Seed of the Rock; from the Root Come Forth spontaneously.

His Very Life, is an Open Book of Witness to the Law and to the Prophets. And that is the Very Point, of everything…

8-12-16-Ten Sephirot 16

Did you really come here looking for instructions on how to build a Golem?

Look around you; they are everywhere.

All I can do for you, is to try to show you how to put the Spirit within the dead clay. I do not know how successful I have been, with you; but the Truth of it is, that it is all entirely up to you…

It always has been.

I have given to you, the Big Picture; but now it is up to you, to sweat out the many details for yourself…

For I am but the Publicist, am but the Front Man, for the Shadow Government. And it is entirely up to you, to have your name signed within their Book. For you have been given freewill…

So, why don’t you choose Life?

Creating a Golem from scratch, from the dust of the earth, with only words? That has been done, time and time again. But to give the dead clay, the True Spirit of Life…

Now that, is evidently rare…

That, is a True Miracle Under Heaven, is a cause for rejoicing, upon the earth.

The following places have had the greatest revelatory impact upon my Spiritual education and understanding. I have not strayed very far; but I have traveled so very far:

Belfast; Bethlehem; the Blue Ridge; Brodheadsville; Bushkill Center; Effort; Jacobsburg; Nazareth; Newburgh; Plainfield; Saylorsburg; and, Wind Gap.

For I miss the forests and the fields and the meadows and the streams of home: the long grass; the cleared path; the shade beneath the oaks; the whispering breeze; the light coming through the greenery; the tinkling crystal waters; Big Rock; the cloud above.

As Above, so below…

Shalom.

7-30-16: Shekinah

People say, “I pray to God; I talk to God; but He never answers me; She isn’t listening to me.”

What are you praying for? What are you asking for? How are you doing it?

Hashem answers in two basic ways:

1.) On the macroscale, YHWH answers in the Storm Cloud and in the Whirlwind. This is a Judgment upon a nation, a people, or a tongue, which indirectly benefits you.

2.) On the microscale, Shekinah answers but a question, which is Compassion personified. And it benefits you directly, Her answering your question about a nation, a people, or a tongue.

“I wanna new car! I wanna ‘nother baby! I wanna hit the friggin’ lottery! I want! I want! I want! Waah! Waah!”

Such a prayer is seldom, if ever, answered.

“Within this world, Lord, may all of your Stars Come down, and choose parents for themselves, who want and need them.”

A prayer like that, is often answered…

But not always. For even the Stars, have their freewill.

What is your motive, in asking for that? Are you being selfish? For YHWH considers your motives far, far more than He does your actions, in His Judgments.

Selfish prayers are seldom answered, unless the one praying unwittingly asks for something which will benefit a large number of people, or perhaps, the entire world. Such a prayer may result in a Sampson, or a Brahms, or the next C.S. Lewis.

Shekinah does, generally, answer every proper question Her child puts to Her; and generally She does it within the same day, and sometimes within seconds.

YHWH’s Rod?

It may take some time…

For He Truly tries to use it sparingly.

The Tiny Whisper in the Ear, the Small Voice of Shekinah, is a Slight Touch and Breath and Rustling of the New Leaf, the New Bloom, the Green Branch of the Prophet, Newly Sprung from the Stump, from the Root.

And when Shekinah no longer has to answer any of these questions, the Prophet has grown into the Rod, the Trunk, the Green Branch, which Overshadows the entire earth, as with Outstretched Wings.

But the thing is, that you have to learn the lingo first. And it is different for everyone, depending upon the Dimension and the Universe that you have chosen to Come down here to Live within.

After you read the story to follow, think over your own prayers, and decide if they are truly being answered by Hashem. And open your eyes and ears, so that you may see how the Tiny Whisper is speaking to you.

Like I said; you gotta know the lingo.

Here is how the Small Voice works for me:

I rebuilt my picnic table in the grove, and threw my tools into the black and blue and yellow bucket, and took them in. It took me all day.

I managed to salvage six boards for reuse. But since I replaced the 2 x 4s with treated decking, I had to salvage two more of the old boards for legs, for additional strength and stability, which made eight saved.

Yes; pay attention, to what you are seeing and hearing. For it is through numerology, that Hashem describes the Universe. After all; the Third Book of the Word, is Numbers…

I supported four of the legs upon stones, which are uncut by human hands. In the Four Directions, the Leveled Expanse was supported by the Foundation Stones. (Know, that everything which you will encounter in your life, is symbolic.)

The two other legs were free in the air, both up and down, hanging suspended between Heaven and earth. And these are the Six Directions. (You have to keep your eyes on the Goal, and you feet on the Path, to Zion; and you have to be paying attention to the Way and Word of Hashem, 24 / 7 / 366).

I took two other uncut stones, which were thicker and bigger, and put them under my leveled table. And then the other four legs were in up the air, and the table was tottering like a seesaw. So I dug them in; but I was not satisfied with the result.

At work on the third day after, I was on an idle site. And behind the remains of the recut building, at the northwest corner, I found a stone hammer with a yellow handle and a black grip. The head was to the right, close to the post; the tail was to the left, farther away. I looked at it, and said to myself, “Black and yellow, kills a fellow.”

The place was abandoned; and they obviously did not know where it was; and no one had been in here for months. I could have easily taken it home, for they did not know what they had done with it.

The head was not at all rusty, which I puzzled over, as the hammer had been out here in the open likely all winter.

I picked it up, and put it in the piping which held the post to the recut building, where they could easily find it again.

Someone else may take it, who needs it; but it is not going to be me.

I find tools like this all of the time. But I only take home those which I find out on the road, as no one knows who dropped them. You will find all kinds of stuff on finders keepers, in the Pentateuch.

From the massive scrap pile, I took two small scraps of the right size and thicknesses, which had been cut and split by the hand of man, for my leveled place, my pad beneath the picnic table, within my grove. And I found a better one; so I switched the second one out, for the third.

But this bothered me.

Here are the circumstances:

1.) The operator had told me that I could take as much rock off of the scrap piles as I wanted, and as often as I wanted. And if I wanted anything specific, if I came by the yard, he could give it to me at a good price, or perhaps even free, depending upon what it was, or how much of it I wanted.

2.) When I asked about the landowner, he said that he lived in Baltimore, and only came up on weekends and vacations; he owned 3,000 to 8,000 acres; and he didn’t care what he did anyway – It was his production and rock, and he could do what he wanted with it, as long as the checks kept cashing. And besides; they had been friends for years.

3.) It was two tiny pieces of scrap rock, which was destined for burial in the fill.

4.) Only God, and I, and the ravens were there.

So I had full permission to take them; but still, for some reason, it did not feel right. So when I got to the next site in the same property down the hill, I tossed them out into the weeds, and felt better with myself, for it.

The site operator used to ride on my bus, when we both went to Nazareth. He was a year ahead of me. Imagine meeting him way up here all over again, after all of these years!

It’s a small Universe…

I pondered this stuff, all of the way home. I had advance permission to take buku more; it was not much; and I wanted and could definitely use it. So, why did it somehow still feel like stealing, to me?

It was because I absolutely did not need it…

I could make do, with what I already had.

All the way home, I pondered upon all of the nuances of this, and when do you punish a mother or a brother for having to steal bread to feed their own, when Hashem duty-binds all of the nation to provide for the safety and welfare of all of their own? Where is Righteousness become the Thief in the Night? Where does Judgment and, and Forgiveness begin?

Like I said: 24 : 7 : 366.

The next morning, in the half-light, I was coming into the ring of uncut stones on the mountain, the area which I had raised up and leveled in the grove for the picnic table, where the smoke pleasingly rises up into Heaven from the bloody meat placed upon the grill…

And there, behind the post of a tree I had spared in the grove, was my Estwing…My carpenter’s hammer, which I had used in making living space in the Fire Museum on Main Street in Old Bethlehem, the city of my birth, the city of my father, who also was a carpenter. We used to meet at the old, wooden counter in the Woolworths’ for breakfast for a while, I working in the Fire Museum right to the south of it, he working in the Orr’s right to the north of it…

At least, for a time.

The nuances of that, were never lost on me…

Look for your own nuances and circumstantials, in your own life…

I had not even missed my carpenter’s hammer. I did not even know, where it was.

My hammer was to the southwest, in the leveled grove. And my hammer’s head was close to the post, the head to the right, and the tail to the left. And I marveled at how little rust was on it yet, after having being rained upon so much. And I bent down toward the earth…

“I see, said the blind carpenter, as he picked up his hammer and saw…”

And as I leaned over, my eyes filled with the colored sparkles of the half-sphered fronts of the Scrolls that were grasped in the Claws of the Eagle, in the half-light of this morning. And as my hand grasped the blue handle of the East Wing, right from where the handle hit the head, oriented west, north, and south, a white Sephirah struck me right between the eyes, right upon the forehead, within the Third Eye, fast-coming and fast-going, leaving a hole in the Universe, within which is seen the Beginning, and the End.

And I thought, ‘The Six Directions…The Six Seals…YWH in the Six Perturbations…The Three, the Six, the Twelve, the Twenty-four, the Forty-eight, the Seventy-two, the One-hundred-and-forty-four Legs of the Bronzed Tools and Altars and Lavers, upon the High Leveled Place…’

And I picked up my blue and silver carpenter hammer and saw…

That it was lying in almost the exact position and referential closeness and angle to the tree, as was the black and yellow and silver and stone hammer of three days before to the iron pipe of the posthole, far to the north of here.

And that is how Shekinah whispers in my ear. And all of my questions of the day before, and of the long night in between, were answered in but a Single Flash of the Sephirah, and a recognition of the similarities of repetition.

For it is an entirely symbolic language; and it is interactive, and it is relative to the needs and wants and mindset and knowledge and level of observation of the receiver of the Message.

Pay attention, and observe. Open your eyes, and your ears. And learn how Hashem Is always speaking to you, and thinking about you, and Is caring for you, though you may choose to deny this, and His Very Presence. He Is always there; She Is always holding you, and picking you up, and trying to comfort you.

But do not wait too long; do not deny the Presence for too long…

For YHWH is waiting…

And the Rod?

It Is within His Hand.

Will He place it in your own hands, as your True Inheritance? Or will He lay it hard upon your stiffened back, as a further burden, and punishment?

Will you be Forgiven, and be taken under Her Wing, to rest Hedged within the Warmth of the Wisdom of Her Plucked Bare Bosom?

Or will you be Judged, and feel the Hard Cold Rod upon your back, and have the Frozen Thunderstones from Above crack your foolish head wide open?

The choice, is yours…

It has always been yours, since from the Very Beginning.

So, choose wisely.

Stop; look; and listen…

And Cross Over.
