Kabbalah - A Master Deception! | Print |





A definition of Kaballah could be summarised as:

  • An experience of "Receiving". A tradition of teachings that span thousands of years derived from "masters" to disciples cultured from the long past and also of yesterday's inventions.
  • Kaballah is an ancient and complex spiritual system of Jewish mysticism and confidential philosophical doctrinal knowledge mixed with derived "hidden" symbols from the old testament scriptures and ancient Jewish writings and mythology.
  • Examination of texts contained in thousands of books written over many centuries containing a body of knowledge for the "in depth" examination of self and the universe. 
  • Receiving the Truth. This receiving the truth is (as quoted by one "teacher") - "you are God reading about God in the process of God becoming God".

Answer: Kabbalah in actual fact as described in the statement above is a spiritual and philosophical religious system of man in the belief that he (by self generated discovery and practical means) can attain the status of God through the probable process of many reincarnations.

¶ To make plain the inference contained in the above statement it must be said that Kabbalah is a system whereby man assumes he is a god (even if pathetic and weak) and that he can unravel the "mystery" of how God became God and thus learn the "secret process" whereby he also can progressively become God just like God did. Kabbalah also believes that everything in essence is deity.

¶ The almost irresistible coercion of this philosophy is the abounding clever use of the Hebrew text of the old testament which is as ancient as the human race. With such authoritative and convincing arguments of hidden meanings and symbols a preposterous fascinating spiritual exercise is invoked upon unwary souls. 

 The Truth of the Word of God:

¶ Kabbalah contains the basic deception that led Adam and Eve into the pit of self worship, sin and death. Kabbalah is essentially all about knowledge but with the huge satanic deception that began in the garden at the dawn of the human race, that with this "knowledge" of good and evil you can become "as God". [Genesis 3:5 .] Upon the outset of Adam and Eve's exciting adventure to become "as God" they immediately became the product of weakness, immorality, decay and finally death.The side that Adam and Eve fell on was the side of "evil" because they rejected the "good" advice of God and chose an evil deceptive degrading lie about God and thus were "ripped off" by the greatest proud opportunist (the Devil) with the end result of a very horrendous package of "sin and death" for the whole subsequent human race of generations to come. Yes Kabbalah is all about "knowledge" but knowledge about God or knowledge about (so called) "secret" meanings of the "Torah" does not change one iota our sinfulness or answer our death. Jesus made the truth very clear to the "Torah" believing Jewish leaders of his day, "Search the Scriptures for in them you think you have Eternal Life BUT they are they which testify of me and you will not come to me that you might have Life ."  [ John 5:39-40 ]

¶ Kabbalah adherents fall into the same error of the Jewish leaders who crucified Jesus. Kabbalah is a sophisticated "mystical" study of the Torah or old Testament (Hebrew) Scriptures in the endeavour to find the power of an "endless" God ascending life! Following Kabbalah is like someone who totally restored their car to brand new status except the engine and in the plight of the car being useless and not able to convey anyone anywhere because of a blown motor, the owner decided to read the Manuel of "knowledge" of the "secrets" of how the motor works expecting that such "knowledge" would produce a new motor! No, how irrational and frantic is that? He must go to the original manufacturer and "receive" the real tangible item.

¶ It could be imagined that as the owner of the car perused the motor manual he may have experienced some "mystical" delight and pleasurable emotions in "receiving" such "knowledge" and "enlightenment" in understanding how the motor works but will be still left "high and dry" until knowledge gives way to "receiving" the real item provided by the sole and only manufacturer. The "Torah" and the old Testament is the "manual of prediction" of the "Heaven" produced motor that is coming, to convey man in his "immobile" state from earth to Heaven and Jesus is the "motor" from Heaven fulfilling all the Old Testament "predictions" with all the specifications outlined in the New Testament.

¶ It is important the reality that you can't mix Jewish spirituality with Christ because they reject the Christ of the Old Testament and also of the New Testament, They reject Christ as the Messiah of the Old Testament so how can Jewish religion, spirituality, philosophy or "light" be true? Such spiritual error renders all their spiritual summations to be dangerous deceptions. The Jewish comprehension of Christ is the old blind notion that he was merely a "good teacher" and this is the same label that is applied by Hinduism and Islam. That Christ is "God manifest in the flesh" [1 Timothy 3:16. Isaiah 7:14.Matthew 1:23. ] is repulsive to Jews. Jewish understanding of Scripture absolutely rejects who he really is, so making it impossible to get truth out of their mixture of Scripture because All truth is found in Jesus Christ. - He is the truth. ALL TRUTH. The whole truth. Jesus Christ is Lord of All, how could he not be the  whole truth?

"The truth is in Jesus" [Ephesians 4:21.]  
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth , and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me . [John 14:6.]  
John 1:9 (KJV)
That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
  John 1:4-5 (KJV)
"In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not"
¶ Once again how true and how much common sense are the words of Jesus ...     "Search the Scriptures for in them you think you have Eternal Life BUT they are they which testify of me and you will not come to me that you might have Life."  [ John 5:39-40 ] Come to Jesus .... He is "that eternal life which was with the Father and was manifest unto us" [ 1 John 1:2 .]

1 John 5:9-13 (KJV)
9 If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son.
10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.
11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

Kaballah really is Jewish Hinduism.

¶ Hindu doctrine believes in reincarnation and also reincarnation is a very strong part of  of Kabbalah mystic Philosophy.

Kabbalah like Hinduism has to believe in reincarnation because obviously, the never ending painful and disappointing "experience" of not becoming "God" demands an escape "overpass": Such a sad delema has to find a deceptive loop hole out of this incredibly foolish notion and "dead end" of reality. The wearing dispair of not even being remotely within a billion miles of becoming "God" has to find an escape comfort in the reincarnation trick to gloss over the empty experience! What a glaring reality stares one in the face, that the pathetic "god power" or "god status" is an unquestionable futile fizzle!

The Word of God on Reincarnation

 The following article is taken from Apologetics Press.org Web site.

By: Kyle Butt, M.A.

¶ The American Heritage Dictionary states that reincarnation is the “rebirth of the soul in another body.” For many years, the belief in reincarnation was generally associated with eastern religions such as Buddhism and Hinduism. However, it is becoming increasingly popular to proclaim a belief in the Bible as the inspired Word of God, yet still maintain a belief in reincarnation. The obvious question arises from such a situation, “What does the Bible say about reincarnation?”

¶ One straightforward statement that speaks directly to the idea of reincarnation is found in Hebrews 9:27-28: “And as it is appointed for men to die once , but after this the judgment, so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many” Without any vague terms, the writer of Hebrews explains that the general course of man’s existence is to taste death only once, and then be judged based on the actions that were accomplished in that one life. In order to underscore the number of times a person dies, the inspired writer declared that men die the same number of times that Christ was offered on the cross—only once. Such a statement goes a long way to prove that the Bible does not teach for reincarnation. (This verse deals with the generality of man’s existence, and excludes miraculous situations, where Christ, an apostle, or a prophet raised someone from the dead.)

¶ Another biblical passage that militates against the idea of reincarnation is found in Luke 16:19-31. In this passage, Jesus told a story in which a poor man named Lazarus, and a rich man, both died. The Bible explains that Lazarus died and “was carried by the angels to Abraham’s bosom” (16:22), but the rich went to “torments in Hades” (16:23). The text further states that the rich man “lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham afar off and Lazarus in his bosom” (16:23 ). Here we have three men who once lived upon the Earth but have died, yet we do not see their souls or spirits reinhabiting some earthly body. Instead, we see the three men—Lazarus, Abraham, and the rich man—in a fully cognizant state in the realm of the dead, separate and apart from any earthly ties. In fact, the rich man begs Abraham to send Lazarus back to Earth to warn his brothers, but Abraham refuses. Therefore, if Lazarus had died, and his soul no longer was on Earth, then he could not have been reincarnated to another earthly body or person. Furthermore, Abraham’s presence in this “realm of the dead” shows that Abraham had not been reincarnated either.

Again, in Luke 23:43, Jesus told the penitent thief who was crucified next to Him, “Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise.” One must ask, if the body of the thief was going to remain on the Earth, and the soul of the thief was going to be with Jesus in Paradise, then what part of that man would be left to reincarnate into another earthly body?

¶ Matthew 17:1-13 poses yet another situation that speaks against the idea that reincarnation occurs. In this passage, Peter, James, and John accompanied Jesus to a high mountain where Jesus was “transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became as white as the light. And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him” (17:2-3). The presence of Moses and Elijah in this instance raises a very important question: If men are reincarnated, what were Moses and Elijah doing talking with Jesus? We know that the physical bodies of Moses and Elijah were not present (see Jude 9). Therefore, their spirits were present, which means that those spirits were not inhabiting some other earthly bodies. It is interesting to note that those who believe that the Bible allows for reincarnation sometimes use Matthew 11:8-14 to claim that John the baptizer was Elijah reincarnate, yet Matthew 17:3 proves that Elijah’s spirit was not in the body of John the baptizer. On the contrary, when Jesus mentioned that John had come in “the spirit of Elijah” (Luke 1:17), He simply meant that John had similar attributes to Elijah.

¶ In looking at the Bible, one gets the clear picture that humans die only once, and that their disembodied spirits go to a “realm of the dead” to wait for the final judgment. The idea of reincarnation does not derive from nor can it be sustained by, the Bible. On the contrary, the Bible implicitly denies even the possibility of reincarnation. Because it is “appointed for men to die once,” we should be that much more diligent to make sure that the one life we live on this Earth accords with the will of the Divine Parent of the human race (Acts 17:29).
