THE JEW HOLDS NOT TO THE TORAH, as some of us have been led to believe, but to the Kabbalah and the Talmud. It is said that Moses, descending from the Mountain, wrote down the Torah while simultaneously presenting the Talmud in oral form, which was faithfully passed down to each generation in succession—until it was, of course, finally put to print. Where conflict arises with the Torah, oral traditions often if not always take precedence.
Perhaps Rabbi Ben Zion Bokser, author of “The Wisdom of the Talmud,” correctly addressed this conflict when he said, “Much of what exists in Judaism is absent in the Bible, and much of what is in the Bible cannot be found in Judaism….”
The Christian should pay attention, if such a realization has yet to occur to him. Judaism is not the religion of the Bible, nor has it ever been since before Yeshua Hamashiach walked the Earth.
“Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.” Colossians 2:8 (KJV)
Yeshua Hamashiach condemned such oral nonsense when he spoke, “Making the Word of God of none effect through your tradition….” (Mark 7:13). Perhaps we must conclude that Yeshua, as a standing first-century Jewish Rabbi, missed out on the higher education, because He only seemed to study the written tradition afforded to Him by His Father as opposed to the academic oral, and clearly had Deuteronomy 4:2 in mind. “Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you.”
Hundreds of years ago, relying on ancient Jewish teachings, the kabbalists described what modern physicists are discovering and describing today. How do two theories that seem so far apart come together? They both start from the same observation—Jewish mysticism.
Long before Charles Darwin, 13th century Rabbi Isaac ben Samuel of Acre made the insight in which, since Sabbatical cycles existed before man was created, time before Adam and Eve must be measured in divine years. Rabbi Isaac of Akko, who held that we are in the seventh Sabbatical cycle, concluded our Universe to be 15 billion years old.
The Higgs Boson “God particle,” which CERN discovered in 2012, needs only trace its origins back to kabbalist Moshe ben Nachman, known as Nachmanides or Ramban (1194-1270), and Isaac Luria (1534-72). Ramban, who refers to his discoveries as coming from “hidden knowledge,” expressed the kabbalist view that the universe at its creation was immaterial and not bigger than a mustard seed, while “Divine Rabbi Luria,” who remains this day undisputedly the greatest kabbalist in history, expounded on the Universe’s origins to such a degree that astrophysics owe a great debt of gratitude, for their concept-for-concept theory of the Big Bang is rooted directly through him. Accordingly, ten vessels were originally meant to contain the emanation of God’s light, but were unable to withstand that light and were hence shattered. As a result of this cosmic catastrophe, the Sefirot, the archetypal values through which the cosmos was created, are shattered and out of place, and the world within which we reside, is composed of the shards of these broken values.
While many “Copernican Christians” recognize the obvious and long-standing kabbalist affair to our present science delusion, their wisdom falls short where the globe is concerned—perhaps out of wishful thinking. And yet the two are inseparable. It is all the same delusion. The globe can religiously first be traced to the Babylonian Talmud. While the early Christian congregation adhered to the teachings of Moses and the Prophets, Jews were prohibited from having images if indeed that image “is holding an orb,” because it would imply that the idol “grasps the whole world as if it were a globe.”
It is in the Zohar in which we read: “….all the world rolls in a circle like a ball, these down and these up, and all the creatures in six lands (our continents) are different in their appearances in accordance with the differences of air in each place…..Therefore there are places in the world that when it is light for those on one side of the sphere it dark for those on the other side of the sphere, for these it is day while for those it is night; and there is a place in the world where it is always day and there is no night, except for a few moments.” (Zohar vol.3, on the portion of Vayikra, fol. 9b-10a)
The Jerusalem Talmud, or Talmud Yerushalmi, Avoda Zara 3:1, states: “R’ Yonah said: When Alexander the Macedonian wanted to go back, he flew [on the back of an eagle] higher and higher until he saw the earth as a ball and the sea as a plate.”
Yeshua Hamashiach wisely advised His disciples, “Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees,” (Matthew 16:6). We are further told that His disciples “reasoned among themselves, saying, ‘It is because we have taken no bread.’” Perhaps our present congregation is also confused as to the meaning of this passage, because though bread we may lack, oral tradition and the wisdom of the Greeks have infiltrated the church to such a degree that our entire belief in the created order has capsized.
Just look what has happened to the world and our church and the apostasy of so many who have turned from it and then consider Galatians 5:9. “A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.” These are not idle words. Bread we are not in need of. We are however in desperate need of another reformation. The man who holds Scientism higher than the pages of God’s Testimony will surely find, if he is indeed an honest soul—willfully choosing to continue in his practices—that just as the wheat is to be separated from the chaff, he too, wherever the reformer can be found, will not want a part in it.
