The kingdom of heaven.
Numbers have a great relevance in Scripture, and in the King James Bible, the number 33 signifies King David, the city of Jerusalem, and Christ, and collectively represents ”the kingdom of heaven.” King David lived 33 generations from Adam. He had 33 mighty men, and reigned from Jerusalem for 33 years. Prior to the cross, Jesus Christ dwelt amongst man for 33 years.
One day Jesus Christ, ”the son of David,” will reign from the City of Jerusalem bringing ”the kingdom of heaven” to earth. The term ”the kingdom of heaven,” appears exactly 33 times in the KJB..
Numbers however, also have an esoteric significance in the occult practices, and ”’33’ symbolizes the highest spiritual conscious attainable by the human being.”
The practice by the Jews of adding to the oracles of God would lead to the mystical teachings of the Kabbalah. Though it first came about during the exile in Babylon, its roots stretch way back to the time before Noah’s Flood. The god of the Kabbalah is not the God of the Bible, but is the usurper god, Lucifer, and his warped philosophy contained in the Kabbalah has spread like a cancer through history, infecting the whole world.
The first documented schools of specifically mystical theory and method in Judaism are found in the 1st and 2nd centuries. As an integral part of Judaism, which itself has its roots in the Talmud, rather than the Torah, the Kabbalah is considered as part of the secret oral law. Hence this doctrine of esoteric knowledge is asserted to have come down as a revelation to the Sages from a remote past, and preserved only by a privileged few. The influence of the earliest Kabbalists during the Babylonian exile, led to the development of the astrology and numerology which the Chaldean Magi became famous for.
Traditional practitioners of Kabbalah believe its earliest origins pre-date all world religions, which is correct. The original teachings of charms, spells and magic had been taught to mankind by the Sons of God, the fallen angels, way back in the days of Noah.
Kabbalah it’s claimed, presents methods to aid understanding of the concepts between the nature of the eternal divine and the human being. and thereby the goal is to attain spiritual realisation or enlightenment.
Much of the teaching revolves round the Kabbalistic ”Tree of Life” which is portrayed to represent a sacred geometrical grid on the human body. The 22 paths (natal or destiny) represent the royal roads that lead from one archetypal energy centre (sphere) to another. A series of ”power-points” called sephiroth, are activated by inner energy as it ascends up the body.
10 sephiroth are known and drawn, but an 11th remains ‘hidden’ and is usually omitted from the diagram. Along with the 22 paths, the 10+1 sephiroth allow for 33 permutations of consciousness.
The 33rd path on the kabbalistic tree is the path of the ”initiate,” straight up the middle pillar. This results in enlightenment, described by some as the opening of ”the third eye.”
The Tarot is closely associated with the Kabbalah, for each of the 22 pathways of the tree of life corresponds with one of the 22 Major Arcana. Likewise each of the 10 sephiroth correspond with a particular number in the Minor Arcana. 33 is one of the three Master numbers of the Tarot.
In Yogic theory, kundalini is a primal energy or shakti located at the base of the spine. It is represented as either a goddess or sleeping serpent waiting to be awakened. This awakening, which is said to result in enlightenment and bliss, involves the Kundalini physically moving up the central channel to reach within the Sahasrara Chakra at the top of the head.
Just as the Kundalini serpent coils up the 33 vertebrae of the spine, so the Kabbalistic Tree of Life is often depicted with a serpent coiling up and around, showing the path to take towards Kether, the crown (chakra). The 33rd state of consciousness being a Kundalini initiated ‘whole brain’ enlightenment, activation, and superconscious state of perception.
The coveted 33rd degree of Freemasonry derives from the esoteric understanding of the Kabbalistic tree of life. In fact, former Europe & Middle East Trade Specialist for the Indiana state government, Gary Kah, states on p.249 of his book The New World Order;
According to Masonic historian Albert Pike, Gnosticism was an offshoot of Kabbalism…. On page 626 of Morals and Dogma-the most esteemed work of Freemasonry-Pike states, “The Kabbalah is the key of the occult sciences; and the Gnostics were born of the Kabbalists.” Mysticism and the Church. Concerns have surfaced periodically since the time of the Toronto Blessing in 1994, as to the ”spirit” behind many of the strange manifestations which have invaded the church..There is the Spirit of Truth and the spirit of error, and for every truth there is a counterfeit. The ”kundalini” is a demon spirit which can pose as a counterfeit Holy Spirit. It would seem that from the moment any ungodly ”manifestation” is attributed to the Holy Spirit, the counterfeit spirit responsible has then been given ”a label.” Once named as such, it will now legally return whenever the Holy Spirit is called for by the assembly. If you search for Kundalini on the Internet, you will find videos that show people in the New Age and Eastern religions, who with the help of a Guru who touches them on the forehead, experience a “Kundalini Awakening.” An Internet search for ”kundalini in the church,” will also provide videos that reveal how in many modern churches, a ”touch on the forehead” from the minister can produce manifestations which are disturbingly similar to those witnessed in the kundalini videos.
When is a Jew not a Jew?
And the Lord appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land… Genesis 12:7.
Christian evangelicals say the land of Israel should be possessed by the descendants of Abraham. They point to the Old Testament and claim that God gave this land forever to the descendants of Abraham and that God demands they and they alone own the land. By this they mean the Jews, who according to Christian evangelicals, are the descendants of Abraham, his seed.
The apostle Paul told us to pay no attention whatsoever to “foolish genealogies” but only to the cross of Jesus. For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh. (Romans 2:28.)
According to the organization ”Judaism 101;”
A person born to non–Jewish parents who has not undergone the formal process of conversion but who believes everything that Orthodox Jews believe and observes every law and custom of Judaism is still a non–Jew, even in the eyes of the most liberal movements of Judaism.
Both the Bible and Judaism teach that every non-Jew in this world is a Gentile, but Paul further tells us,that all, Jew and Gentile, who have faith in Jesus are ”Abraham’s seed and heirs according to the Promise.” (Galatians 3:26-29).
Regardless of race or ethnic origin, the Bible tells us that when one is born again he is a new person in Christ. But Jesus goes one step further by saying that any Gentile who claims to be a Jew is not only a liar and blasphemer, but collectively they constitute ”the synagogue of Satan.” Therefore the synagogue of Satan is not a particular building or location, but primarily a group of people who claim to be Jews when in fact they are not Jews.
Revelation 2:9. I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
Revelation 3:9. Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.
A Jew is one who is a descendant of Abraham, but what of a person of another heritage, a Gentile let’s say. who has converted to Judaism? He may claim to be a Jew, he may even believe himself to be a Jew, but he can never claim to be of the lineage of Abraham, or change his genetics, and therefore can never be a Jew.
There is only one problem, and it is a huge one, for DNA science has proven that the “Jews” of Israel are not Abraham’s descendants but, instead, come from the subjects of King Bulan of Khazaria.
In November 2001, Dr. Ariella Oppenheim, a Jewish professor of genetics at Tel Aviv University, and five research colleagues released the results of their study in the American Journal of Human Genetics. Based on DNA evidence the report showed that the ”Jews” were mainly of Khazar stock, from a Caucasus country which is now called Kazakhstan.
Dr. Oppenheim’s findings were confirmed in late 2012 by another Israeli-born scientist, Dr. Eran Elhaik, of the McKusick-Nathans Institute of Genetic Science. His peer-approved ”definitive study” was published in The Journal of Biology and Evolution. According to Dr. Elhaik; amongst the various groups of Jews in the world today, ”their genome is largely Khazar.”
The historical evidence shows that the Khazarians were pagans and idol worshippers who for some three centuries (c. 650–965) dominated the vast area extending from the Volga-Don steppes to the eastern Crimea and the northern Caucasus. Nevertheless, with Muslims on one side of them, and Christians on the other, they lived in constant fear of invasion. The Jews on the other hand were happy to trade with the Muslim, the Christian, and the Khazarian alike.
Being one of the foremost trading emporia of the medieval world, the Khazarian king, King Bulan, and his court, decided they should adopt a religion for their people. So, representatives of the three major religions, Christianity, Islam and Judaism, were invited to present their religious doctrines. The Khazars chose Judaism, but it wasn’t so much for religious reasons, as it was for political reasons. If the Khazars had chosen Islam, they would have angered the strong Christian world. If they had chosen Christianity, they would have angered the strong Islamic world.
So, they played it safe, and in so doing, the Khazar-Judaeo converts adopted the principles of the most holy Jewish book, the Talmud, which to the Jews surpasses the Bible.
In his ”Commentary on the Gospel of Matthew,” the ninth-century Benedictine monk Christian of Stavelot referred to the Khazars as the ”Hunnic descendants of Gog and Magog and said to be circumcised and observing all the laws of Judaism.”
Between 965 and 969, Sviatoslav I of Kiev conquered its capital, and the Khazar state was eventually destroyed by Genghis Khan. Several scholars have suggested that the Khazars did not disappear after the dissolution of their Empire, but migrated West to eventually form part of the core of the later Ashkenazi Jewish population of Europe.
In 1976 after many years of research, a brilliant scholar and writer named Arthur Koestler published a controversial255 page book entitled ”The Thirteenth Tribe” in which he proves that Eastern European “Jews” are neither Israelites nor “Semites,” but are instead Khazars, Mongols, and Huns!! At the end of the book’s last chapter, Koestler states;
”I have compiled the historical evidence which indicates that the bulk of Eastern Jewry — and hence of world Jewry — is of Khazar-Turkish, rather than Semitic, origin. In the last chapter I have tried to show that the evidence from anthropology concurs with history in refuting the popular belief in a Jewish race descended from the biblical tribe. In support of Koestler’s thesis, Israeli emeritus professor of history Shlomo Sand, argues that the enigma is one deliberately ignored by most Israeli historians and it is likely that the ancestry of most contemporary Jews stems mainly from outside the Land of Israel. The story of the exile by the Romans, he claims, was a myth promoted by early Christians to recruit Jews to the new faith.”
In his book The Invention of the Jewish People (2009 , Sand suggests that those who attacked Koestler’s book did so not because it lacked merit, but ”because the critics were cowards and ideologues.”. He writes;
”while the Khazars scared off the Israeli historians, not one of whom has published a single paper on the subject, Koestler’s Thirteenth Tribe annoyed and provoked angry responses. Hebrew readers had no access to the book itself for many years, learning about it only through the venomous denunciations”.(p.2388).
After all is said and done, and as summed up quite aptly by editor Evan Goldstein in the Wall Street Journal, ”Chronicle of Higher Education;” (29 October 2009.)
”No one wants to go looking under stones when venomous scorpions might be lurking beneath them, waiting to attack the self-image of the existing ethnos and its territorial ambitions.” ,
Today it’s estimated the Khazar Ashkenazim to comprise of between 74-85 percent of Jews worldwide, which in view of Jesus’ warning is quite a disturbing percentage.
