Revelations of the Holy Kabbalah: Ancient & New Teachings

“Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a master of a household who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old” (Matthew 13:51-52).

Adonai Yeshua had given teachings of the kingdom of heaven in parables to the people and afterward he asked his close disciples if they had understood the teachings and they affirmed that they did, then he shared this teaching with them before traveling to preach in his hometown. If understood these verse speak a deep mystery in the play of giving and receiving teachings and revelations, for as we know esoteric gospels speak of a ‘Treasury of Light’ or ‘Wisdom Treasury’ in the Supernal Abode - eternal realm, that holds the knowledge, understanding and wisdom of all teachings and revelations of the past, present and future, all teachings and revelations that will manifest throughout all time. This, of course, corresponds with the foreknowledge of God, the Infinite and Eternal One, and of the wisdom, understanding and knowledge that realized or enlightened souls are gifted with who pass away in conscious unification with the Holy One, and so reaching into the lofty stations beyond, such as the ‘continuum of abiding,’ ‘perfect love,’ ‘righteous one,’ ‘prophethood,’ and ‘apostleship.’

Understand, whenever a living tzaddik arises and comes into being, teaching the Holy Kabbalah, initiating a lineage of Light Transmission, or prophetic or apostolic succession, it is as for the first time every time, and yet the teachings and revelations that are given are both ancient and completely new - when true teachings of the Holy Kabbalah are given, or of the kingdom of heaven, it is always a fresh, living revelation of the Spirit of God with, in and through that holy and enlightened one, that messenger. You see, to such souls the Treasury of Light, the Wisdom Treasury, is opened and they are free to draw from it, all as the Spirit of God inspires, all as God wills and ordains, and when they pray and contemplate, and engage in aliyat neshamah, mystical ascensions of the soul, perfect knowledge of teachings and revelations dawns in them, both old and new, ancient and for the present day, the present generation. It is above, inward, in the Light Treasury that we may say there is a single, unified, tradition of the Holy Kabbalah, but in this world, in the realization of great and perfect tzaddikim in it, truly with each holy tzaddik there is a unique and individual revelation and manifestation of Kabbalah, all as is needed for their spiritual community, and for their time and place. Necessarily, in lineage, in succession, in the giving of teachings there are the old and new as living tradition, living revelation, progresses and evolves; such is the way of true revelation of the kingdom of heaven, or the Holy Kabbalah.

If this is understood, then you will also understand that no teaching, no knowledge, can ever really be lost; though it may seem that at times knowledge of secret mysteries and secret ways may be lost in this world, at any time through the Spirit of God and the play of aliyat neshamah with tzaddikim, realized souls, esoteric wisdom, secret knowledge, may be restored with full understanding. Likewise, with such souls, you will also understand that they may ‘see’ teachings and revelations that are yet to be revealed, having ‘sight’ into future times as with prophets and apostles of God Most High.

Do understand that the inmost aspects of all souls, being inseparable from the Infinite and Eternal One, and so from the Light Continuum, hold such Habad - wisdom, understanding and knowledge. This is well known by those among us who having entered into near-death experiences and tasted of the afterlife states, can recount various experiences, such as ‘remembering’ all teachings and empowerments they have ever received in their previous incarnations, as well as ‘remembering’ teachings and empowerments they are destined to receive in the future - hence a knowledge of the continuum of the soul in the eternal realm, beyond the play of space-time, or past, present and future. The term ‘remembering,’ holds much truth of the experience, but then it’s also somewhat misleading, for in fact all of the wisdom, understanding and knowledge is experienced as a present reality, and it is as though an immediate experiential ‘knowing.’ This naturally is a hint of the experience of the Treasury of Light, or the Supernal Wisdom Treasury.

In this, perhaps, you may glean that through the grace and mercy of God Most High, through the Holy Spirit, it is possible for any soul among the faithful and elect to be elevated by the Spirit into an experience of the Treasury of Light and to glimpse and taste something of this repository of Habad. Indeed, perhaps you may recall what Adonai Yeshua teaches his disciples about the Holy Spirit in the Gospel of John, that receiving her she will lead them into new teachings and revelations, all truth, and likewise bring perfect remembrance of all teachings they have received, even deep understanding of the teachings of the great prophets before them. Thus, such Habad is gifted by the Holy Spirit, and concerning these two verses we may say that it is the Holy Spirit that ‘trains scribes for the kingdom of heaven’; hence the phrase, the ‘College of the Holy Ghost.’

These are some thoughts I was inclined to share this morning.

May the Holy Spirit lead you into All-Truth, the realization of the Absolute Oneness of God Most High! Amen.

Shalom Aleichem!

Shalom Tau Malachi,

Many blessings for these teachings and revelations of the secrets of the Divine Kingdom!
Your teaching brings up a contemplation of the soul of the Human One. This teaching explains why Tzaddikim can seem to "know" so much, and it seems it is not their own knowing, but God's knowing in them. It is so amazing and miraculous to me that the inmost nature of the soul is completely at One with God and the light continuum, so that these rememberings become a constant reality.

I am especially struck with the ability of Tzaddikim to ascend and draw upon these teachings and revelations, and then bring them here, into manifested reality. May all who have eyes to see, see, and ears to hear, hear! Can we say that with Tzaddikim, their souls are completely aligned with their bodies, and their consciousness? Is living in accordance to our true purpose something of how these revelations are drawn into the body?

There is also a contemplation of surrender here. Where, if I'm understanding correctly, a Tzaddik is living in complete surrender to the truth and light revealed in their experience. And is that how the Spirit can fully take them up so as to experience these soul rememberings?

May the Holy One remember the Holy Ones self with, in, and through us, Amen!

Blessings and Shalom,
Marion

Greetings and blessings to you in the Holy Light of Messiah, the light of all prophets and apostles of God!

The spiritual power of aliyat neshamah, mystical ascents of the soul or the transference of consciousness, comes from the realization and embodiment of neshamah, our heavenly or supernal soul. When embodied, neshamah is joined with ruach and nefesh, merging with them, and so with the mind, heart and body - merging with all levels of our being and consciousness. It is through our holy neshamah that we are able to reach into hayyah and yechidah, and likewise it is through neshamah that we are able to reach into the Light Treasury. Though, indeed, neshamah may emanate and be embodied in an incarnation, though ‘descending below’ neshamah remains ‘above,’ in the eternal realm and Light Continuum; it is this reality of neshamah ‘above’ and ‘below’ that allows a soul, in effect, on an experiential level, to ‘ascend’ and ‘descend’ through the array of stations or grades, and through the heavens to the Throne of Glory and the Supernal Abode, and likewise to draw Habad from the Treasury of Light. The embodiment of neshamah, of course, corresponds with full rebirth from above, and as we are taught in the Gospel of John, only one who has descended from above can ascend awakened, returning to their origin in God, the True Light, and entering into ‘repose,’ or conscious union.

As we know, the Gospel of John cites the ‘Son of Man’ - Sun of the Human One, as the one who can do this, and this speaks of a deep mystery in the Christian Kabbalah. You see, ‘Son of Man’ indicates the One Soul, and with regards to neshamah understand that all neshamot are within our neshamah and our neshamah is within them, and as we know, this corresponds with the radiant holy breath of the Eternal God (Yahweh Elohim) that gives light and life to the Human One, ‘Adam.’ The word for breath in Hebrew that is used in the story of the creation of the Human One in the Holy Torah is neshamot, and from it the One Soul emanates and is formed. If, indeed, neshamah is realized and embodied in an individual, in that realization is unification with the One Soul. As you may remember we are taught in the Holy Kabbalah that the First Human Being (Adam Ha-Rishon) was able to ‘see from the beginning to the end of creation,’ from one end of the world and ages to the other, beholding all that would transpire; hence, a gazing in the Light Continuum and Light Treasury in the Supernal Abode.

As you might imagine, given that all neshamot are emanations of the One Soul, this spiritual and supernal knowledge of creation and God is in the inmost parts of all souls; but do understand that though all share in this knowledge of God, each has a unique and individual manifestation of this knowledge, or ‘special knowledge,’ corresponding with their yechidah, unique essence or divine spark (Divine Self, Divine I Am).

Now if, in fact, a soul reaches and attains the station of passing away and reaches into the inmost stations beyond, in unification with the One Soul so there is the realization of the unity of the One Soul and ‘Soul or God,’ or ‘Soul of Messiah’; there is conscious union with the One Soul and with God Most High, the Absolute Light. Thus holy and enlightened ones share in something of the foreknowledge of God and Habad of God, God awakened in them having knowledge of God - God knowing God, God praying to God; hence, the state of Christ or God Consciousness, whether spiritual or supernal.

The full capacity of aliyat neshamah requires the realization of the station of passing away, for by nature mystical ascents of the soul, or the full transference of consciousness, is a passing away. Understand, if the center of the soul is shifted from the physical body into a spiritual body of light, that very shift is a grade of the station of passing away; if then, arising in the spiritual body of light there is a reintegration of that light body with the Infinite Light, or the Union with Clear Light, that is a complete passing away in the Oneness of God, the Absolute Light. From states of cosmic consciousness, or spiritual grades of Christ or God Consciousness, there is this play of apparent passing away; but then from the supernal grades of Christ or God Consciousness there is the realization of the station of ‘no passing away,’ or ‘bornless being’ - hence the state of Non-Dual Gnostic Awareness, or realization of the Absolute Oneness of God Most High (El Elyon). Before the realization of the station of no passing away, however, there is the realization of the station of passing away, so that indeed all must enact a complete surrender, submission, self-offering, passing away in the Holy One of Being.

Here we are speaking of the realization of great tzaddikim and perfect tzaddikim, great tzaddikim having realized the station of passing away and perfect tzaddikim having realized the station of no-passing away; hence, spiritual realization - cosmic consciousness, and supernal realization - supernal consciousness, respectively. Corresponding with this is the Habad of God Most High that is gifted and embodied in a realized individual, and likewise the presence and power of the Messiah and Holy One they bear in their incarnation.

The full conscious capacity of aliyat neshamah corresponds with the realization of neshamah and the station of passing away, but do understand that at times souls from among the faithful and chosen may be taken up in something of aliyat neshamah by the Holy Spirit or by angels of God, and so taste, glimpse, something of this deep mystical experience and receive some special knowledge and understanding. This can and does transpire, and do understand that living tzaddikim are also able to uplift souls that draw close to them in mystical ascensions as well, those among their spiritual companions that draw near and cleave to them in the Blessed Name and Divine Presence. Also understand that for souls among the faithful and chosen that as yet are not able to engage in conscious aliyat neshamah through their own volition, and so are not able to enter into the Light Treasury and draw out wisdom jewels, there are angels that may enter on their behalf and that may be sent to them by the Lord, gifting them with wisdom jewels, special knowledge of secret mysteries of creation and God. I will share with you that in the Sanctuary of Grace, and in Anointed Community, no one is lacking; great things may occur for those who have faith and love, who live according to their faith, and attend to their devotions, inwardly cleaving to the Messiah and Holy One. As Adonai Yeshua taught, with God nothing is impossible - anything and everything is possible. Thus do know and believe that at anytime the Holy Spirit or angels may take up your soul, but then if the Holy Spirit or angels were to do so do not become attached to it with your ego, but rather know that it is a manifestation of the mercy and grace of God in the Messiah, a blessing from God, and give praise and thanks to God, giving glory to God Most High for what God has done in mercy and compassion. Praise God!

Remember to always bow yourself down before the Shekinah of Shaddai, the Almighty, and to abide in surrender, submission, to Yahweh Elohenu, the Eternal One your God.

These are a few further mysteries it is given for me to point out.

May God bless you and keep you this day, and gather you in! Amen.

Shalom Aleichem!

Soul of Creation

Shabbat Shalom, Tau Malachi:

As you might imagine, given that all neshamot are emanations of the One Soul, this spiritual and supernal knowledge of creation and God is in the inmost parts of all souls; but do understand that though all share in this knowledge of God, each has a unique and individual manifestation of this knowledge, or ‘special knowledge,’ corresponding with their yechidah, unique essence or divine spark (Divine Self, Divine I Am).

Praise God for this most layered and subtle teaching on passing away. What I’m gathering from the larger message here has become a question.

While I’ve been aware that Yahweh’s climactic response to Job answers all questions of duality with transcendence, that Job is being taken back into and out of time in a receding vision of time and Creation, I’ve never heard this: Yahweh’s response is a vision of passing away unfolding the Neshamah of Job. Through his neshamah, he’s glimpsing from the One Soul—the Soul of Adam—able to ‘see from the beginning to the end of creation,’…a gazing in the Light Continuum and Light Treasury in the Supernal Abode.

If this is near the mark, it now occurs to me all over that for those souls who can remain conscious in the “afterlife above," they’ll have the opportunity to witness the arising of all reality, even its visions of peaceful, wrathful, and blissful palaces as the radiance of their mind. As you remind throughout such teachings, souls who remember this pass away into liberation; those who forget this might pass out back into karma. This leads to another related question.


I’ve long enjoyed the relationship between the five general parts of soul and their correspondence with the five universes of creation. These mutually mirror each other as micro- and macro-realities. What I’ve not heard until your writing above, is how the soul and creation present mutual visions of each other while one passes away. It’s something of how you said, this spiritual and supernal knowledge of creation and God is in the inmost parts of all souls. What is passing away now or at death and the aftelife, but a great vision of the higher parts of soul mirrored by greater depths in the origin of creation?

I feel an analogy. As the Hubble telescope looked deeper into space, it also looked back into time, when our universe was literally very young, like a toddler of its present ‘young adult’ state. A forthcoming launch of an infrared telescope will multiply that deep view even further into cosmic infancy. Like concentric rings of a tree, all of these layers of time simultaneously exist. The further back we can look, the farther back in time to its origin.

Understand, if the center of the soul is shifted from the physical body into a spiritual body of light, that very shift is a grade of the station of passing away; if then, arising in the spiritual body of light there is a reintegration of that light body with the Infinite Light, or the Union with Clear Light, that is a complete passing away in the Oneness of God, the Absolute Light. There’s something of these degrees of passing away that remind of corresponding visions in and from the soul that arise while passing away. I’m wondering now if passing away beholds such views of creation from within the soul?

Gratefully,

Elder Gideon

Grace and peace to you from Messiah Yeshua and El Elyon!

You are correct my brother. In any manifestation of the Holy Shekinah, as with Job, along with the Divine Voice there is Divine Vision so that a soul sees, hears and feels what is spoken and has a far deeper and more intimate knowledge of what’s communicated to them than mere thoughts and words can convey. It is not conceptual, it is not theoretical, but it is experiential and there is a knowing of what’s been communicated that is beyond thoughts and words. Outside of such mystical experiences themselves it would be difficult to explain, but the play of vision and voice, or seeing, hearing and feeling, is very different than what we might think it is, for these are moments of intimate nearness or oneness with God, and as such heart and soul and mind, become as the Heart and Soul and Mind of God, knowing with and in God, as it were, truly having the knowledge of God of the secret mysteries disclosed.

As you know, the term for enlightenment in the Holy Kabbalah is Mochin Gadlut - ‘Big Mind,’ and this implies states of Christ or God Consciousness, or a merging of one’s mind with the Mind of Christ or God. As the word ‘big’ implies, such higher stations and states of soul, consciousness, are an expansion of the soul, consciousness, and expansion that may encompass the expanse of creation, and beyond, expanding into the Infinite and Eternal One. At first when we hear of ‘passing away’ we may think of it in strange ways, like being snuffed out or something, but rather passing away is something like a drop of saltwater dripped back into the ocean, merging with the ocean, becoming the ocean, expanding into the vast spaciousness of the ocean. If and when the station of ‘no passing away’ is realized, joined with this is something like the experience of the entire ocean pouring through the drop of saltwater. Such is the experience of Mochin Gadlut spiritual and supernal, respectively, from passing away to no passing away, realizing intimate nearness or oneness with the Holy One of Being.

Understand, in full passing away, which is to say Clear Light Union, abiding in oneness with the Primordial Foundation, the origin from which all creation arises, in which all abides and to which all returns, there may be the arising of the Great Vision - the experience of the Primordial Word within this Primordial Wisdom, sound vibration, giving rise to five essential lights, the arising of the fundamental elements of consciousness in their innate purity, in oneness, and so then rays of light and geometrical formations, which in turn produces light forms and light realms - vision of the Pleroma of Light, the Supernal Abode; hence, and awareness, experience, of initial movements of creation at the level of Pure Emanation, the Supernal Universe, Atzilut. With this there is an arising of the soul in the Threefold Body, Truth, Glory and Emanation; Truth Body the Clear Light, the Absolute Oneness of God Most High, Glory Body the entirety of the Great Vision, and Emanation, the radiant subtle body within and behind the incarnation of that holy and enlightened one, or ‘gnostic apostle.’

As perhaps you might surmise, this would be an experience of beholding the entirety of creation as the One Soul in unity with the Eternal One, and so would correspond with intimate knowledge of secrets of creation and God - a knowing as God knows, more or less.

Here, of course, I’m speaking specifically of supernal realization and reaching the station of no passing away, but then there are grades of spiritual realization that are more common, which may draw profound wisdom, understanding and knowledge from the Light Treasury, and then even more common are elevations of souls by the Holy Spirit and knowledge from the Light Treasury that may be gleaned through communion with the spirits of tzaddikim and angels of God in peak mystical experiences.

Now I will share with you an open secret my brother. Yeshua speaks it in the Gospel of St. Thomas, teaching his disciples that is they wish to have knowledge of the end of days they ought to look into the beginning. Understand, to behold the origin, beginning, which in truth is ‘no beginning,’ is to behold the end-of-days, and in passing away, full passing away, so creatures, creation, passes away with you - it’s an experience of the end-of-days; there is only the Holy One, there is no other. In a manner of speaking, and I dare say poorly said, to gaze upon creation from Atzilut, the Supernal Universe, is like gazing into ‘before’ the beginning of creation and ‘beyond’ the end of creation - truly it is beyond space and time, a gaze of the eternal realm in oneness with the Infinite and Eternal One, the Primordial and Supernal One.

Of Job we may say that he was brought by the Spirit of God from the outer grade of the station of passing away into the inner grade of that station, but he was not brought into the secret grade of the station, or no passing away, for as yet the Messiah had not come and it was not time for the coming of the Messiah. Thus, being brought to the inner grade of passing away - that of the greater prophets, it is said his ‘good fortune’ was even greater following this passing away and the corresponding evolution of his spiritual realization or Mochin Gadlut.

These are a few things I can share with you and the community.

Let us labor always for a ‘better resurrection,’ an ever greater spiritual and supernal realization in Messiah; and may God help us to this end! Amen.

Shalom Aleichem!

Creation and Soul

All praise to the Most High!

I have not seen these scales of macro- and microcosmic reality linked so clearly as you have in this writing. If I’m correct, you’ve made an analogy (macro: micro) that I’m hearing as follows:



Primordial Foundation: Body of Truth
Great Vision: Body of Glory
Emanation: Body of Emanation: Inner Neshamah

All of this, as you’ve said, is at the level of the Supernal Universe, Atzilut. But if I follow this out from the realm of yihud to its extensions in Perud, it’s very logical:



Beriyah: Outer Neshamah
Yetzirah: Ruach
Asiyah: Nefesh

Stations of passing away in their degrees leading to “no passing away” provide such a clear way to hear these macro:micro realities of Creation and soul. This leads to an insight into Ma’aseh Bereshit—Work of Creation and Ma’aseh Merkavah—Work of the Chariot.

You commented last Shabbat that passing away is very similar with the transference of consciousness, which you equated with mysteries of Ma’aseh Merkavah. In that moment, so much came together. I heard that we study and contemplate the Work of Creation to understand how our soul can consciously transfer: the Work of the Chariot. 

We have all of the evidence in prophecies and apocalypses to contemplate the Work of the Chariot. The greater these revelations, the nearer to the “beginning”—the Work of Creation— these prophets and apostles reached by way of their soul’s ascent—the Work of the Chariot.

No prophet could enter the station of “no passing away,” which is to consciously return in ascent of the soul to beginning, to reshit. I heard you align the beginning with the Fiftieth Gate of Understanding. No prophet could stand in this directly until the incarnation of Messiah. Now a whole other detail emerges for me of this mysterious Fiftieth Gate of “no passing away.”

Yeshua speaks in the Gospel of St. Thomas, teaching his disciples that is they wish to have knowledge of the end of days they ought to look into the beginning. Understand, to behold the origin, beginning, which in truth is ‘no beginning,’ is to behold the end-of-days, and in passing away, full passing away, so creatures, creation, passes away with you - it’s an experience of the end-of-days; there is only the Holy One, there is no other.

I’m astonished. I’ve never considered the Fiftieth Gate as one who stands at the beginning: that one will know the end and will not taste death (Thomas 18). In plain sight, the Gospel of John begins, “In the beginning was the Word.” I’m now hearing “In the Fiftieth Gate was the Word.” Messiah is even more transcendental to me than ever before, how Creation and the soul share the same beginning which no one could access before Yeshua. What praise, awe, and thanksgiving to the One who embodied the beginning. HalleluYeshua.

Creation and Soul are now in my hearing the Work of Creation and the Work of Merkavah.

The Fiftieth Gate of Understanding in my hearing is the embodied union of the beginning and end.

Praise El Elyon.

I’m overwhelmed.

Blessings to you in the Holy Light of Messiah, the light of all prophets and apostles!

First a clarification. The Body of truth corresponds with the Absolute Light - Clear Light, and is the Primordial Foundation, the inmost essence and nature of all; then, what is beheld in the arising of the Great Vision, the entire array, is inseparable from the Body of Glory, and is the Body of Glory; the Body of Emanation corresponds with the light body, subtle body, of a specific incarnation - and so a pure emanation, that holy body being inseparable from the world and universe in which it appears incarnate. This, of course, corresponds with a full realization of the Absolute Oneness of God Most High (El Elyon), and so full realization of the Divine Self, Divine I Am; hence, Supernal Realization, ‘no passing away.’

Now we may say that the Truth Body corresponds with the interiors of neshamah, the Glory Body with neshamah of neshamah, and the Emanation Body with the exteriors of neshamah, or ruach and nefesh of neshamah. Necessarily the Supernal Realization and the generation of the Threefold Body is the embodiment of the fullness of neshamah, interiors and exteriors, completely integrated with the ruach and nefesh of an incarnate Anointed Tzaddik, or ‘Gnostic Apostle.’ Thus, the fullness of neshamah unified, integrated, with the Divine Presence, the Holy Light and Spirit of the Messiah, is embodied in the person of a Holy Tzaddik, or ‘Sacred Tau’; in this regard, having been so purified and sanctified - consecrated by God Most High, even the flesh is as a ‘pure emanation, a vehicle, ‘chariot,’ of this Light-presence and Light-power.

As you know, at times, in intimate exchanges of Light Transmission, or in powerful movements of the Divine Presence in invocation, prayer and sacred ceremony, we may catch some glimpse of this, for in elevated states we may perceive that the appearance of a Holy Tzaddik is not as ‘solid’ as we might normally experience it, or they may seems to become somewhat translucent, or their appearance might radically shift, or they might even seems to disappear and reappear before our very eyes. Initially such experiences with a Tzaddik may cause us to ponder whether they are a human being or an angelic being, but they are fully human and fully divine, akin to our Elder Brother and Sister, Yeshua and Mirya. Such is a hint of the reality of pure emanation, or the energetic play of a realized soul arising in the Threefold Body.

As we speak of such deep mysteries we must bear in mind that what we behold with living tzaddikim in these moments of revelation is a reflection to us of the soul and Spirit of God that is in us, a stirring of remembrance of who and what we all are inwardly, in the Light Continuum and the Eternal One (Yahweh). In the ignorance, the forgetfulness, we have just become bound up in dualistic consciousness, grasping at name and form and personal history, and the belief in a separated and independent self-existence apart from all that appears in the reality of our experience and its source, God Most High - the Absolute Light. On account of this we arise in impure emanation, more or less, unaware of the truth and reality of our pure emanation from God, our innate oneness with God - the Great Natural Perfection of our soul, our being, as we are in the Messiah and Holy One, or the ‘Light Continuum.’ Nevertheless, though having fallen, as it were, into such ‘impurity,’ the truth and reality of pure emanation remains, and when living tzaddikim engage in revelations of their Body of Emanation and Body of Glory, when God unveils and discloses Godself in this way, so we are being called to awaken from our long sleep to ‘return to be One.’

Now, understand, the Threefold Body is the true and holy chariot (merkavah) of the Eternal God, the Almighty (Yahweh Elohim, Shaddai), and the entire intention of the Eternal God in creation is the generation of this Threefold Body - this knowledge of God, this Self-realization in humanity. In this ma’aseh merkavah and ma’aseh bereshit - ‘work of the chariot’ and ‘work of creation,’ are inseparable from one another, ma’aseh merkavah being the fruition, climax, of ma’aseh bereshit. If you understand the realization of the Absolute Oneness of God, then truly you cannot distinguish these two works - really they are a single twofold work, action, all accomplished by the Spirit of God (Ruach Elohim).

Concerning the Fiftieth Gate of Understanding, it is the Messiah, the Word-Wisdom of God Most High, and it is the realization of the Absolute Oneness of God Most High; hence, conscious union with the Eternal One. The generation of the Threefold Body naturally and spontaneously arises in this Supernal Realization, therefore the full arising of the Great Vision of Melchizedek is associated with this inmost Gate of Understanding.

I pray these thoughts might be of assistance to you in your ongoing contemplation my brother.

Through Divine Grace may you be blessed with this Self-realization in Messiah, the Anointing! Amen.

Yeshua Shalom!
