Forty-Third Names

The Forty-third Names

The Forty-Third Name of Gevurot: Vau-Vau-Lamed


The Kabbalah says that it is the angels of God that are the agents of creation, the emanation of Elohim generating the Universe of Yetzirah, the world of angels, and the Universe of Yetzirah generating the Universe of Asiyah, the material dimension and all of the worlds within it; within and behind all of this is Yahweh and the Universe of Atzilut, the World of the Holy Sefirot.

Elohim is the principle of Gevurah, the power of the tzimtzum, the restriction of the Supernal Light, the illusion of separation, and it is this that gives rise to the play of Light and Darkness – the breaking of the vessels and all that follows; according to the masters of the tradition, there is no judgment or darkness in Elohim, but Elohim gives rise to judgment and darkness, and the play of spiritual forces in opposition and conflict.

The story of the fallen angels and the fall of the Human One, as well as the story of the Beni Elohim, the Sons of God, that come down upon the earth – all of this speaks to the breaking of vessels and their sparks becoming bound up in the shards of the shells, the generation of klippot, the creation of darkness or evil.

The play of Light and Darkness comes into being in the Universe of Beriyah, but it is in the Universe of Yetzirah, the world of angels, that its full force comes into effect, so that in Yetzirah we find the full force and play of these two equal and opposing forces in creation – the full force of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.

According to the Holy Torah and Gospel, and the Kabbalah that is found in them, all angels are not divine, but there are also archonic and demonic angelic beings – angels of admixture and darkness, the “fallen angels.”

Now, on one hand, angels are the agents of creation and have a great influence upon what transpires in it, and they have a great influence upon humankind and all creatures; and yet, the world of angels is outside or below the world of souls (neshamot), so that human beings have a great influence upon the angels – likewise, not only do human beings have a great impact upon the world of angels, but they even have the power to create angelic beings, whether divine, admixed or dark.

This is all rooted in our mind, heart and life – in our soul, it is rooted in our thoughts, emotions, words and deeds; through these we give life-power and strength to angelic beings, and we create angelic beings, whether divine, admixed or dark and hostile – this, in turn, determines the balance of the play of spiritual forces in our world, and what transpires in it.

Unfortunately, in the ignorance, in the unregenerated bestial state and egoistic condition, we tend to give life-power and strength to the “angels” of the Other Side, the klippot – the archons and shedim, and correspondingly it is these spiritual beings-forces that hold dominion in our world, becoming the larger influence. If we want to gain some sense of the spiritual forces we invoke and create in the subtle psychic atmosphere of the world, we merely need to consider and feel the texture and tone – the vibration, of the thoughts, emotions, words and actions we most often occupy ourselves with throughout the day, for in the egoistic condition most often our mind, speech and action is admixed at best, and frequently becomes dark and violent, a storm of negativity.

This is among the Names of God that holds the power to cut off the flow of our life-power or light-power to the “angels” of the Other Side; but more specifically, it is a Holy Name that gives strength to the angels of God and that gives empowerment for the generation of angels in the Divine Light – the creation of angels in service to heaven that uplift the world.

Now where there is true worship of God with a good heart, and with kavvanah and devekut, the angels of God come among the faithful and elect to uplift and empower their worship; and so also, when we engage in spiritual study and contemplation, prayer and meditation, sacred ceremony and good works, we in turn strengthen the worship of God among the angels in heaven – in our service to heaven we strengthen one another. When this Holy Name is invoked it strengthens the worship of the angels above, and it draws influxes of angelic forces into our movements of worship, increasing the influence of the holy angels of God in the world, and it increases the flow of blessing and grace that comes with them.

Quite naturally, this is among the Names navim call upon for dreams and visions inspired by angels of God, and it is a Name wonderworkers call upon to invoke holy angels into their wonderworking movements – the agents of the Holy Spirit who enact wonders according to Ratzon Elyon; there is great wonderworking power in this Holy Name.

In this, perhaps, you may understand that this is among the Holy Names of God that holds the power for the tikkune of the vessels of Zer Anpin and the Supernal Human One (Adam) – and as a Name for the tikkune of the Human One, there is also healing power in this Holy Name.

In the tradition there are teachings and practices for communion the Holy Maggid – the “knowledge and conversation with Holy Guardian Angel,” and there are teachings and practices for the generation of the Holy Maggid as understood in the Inner Sanctuary composed of the Holy Tzaddik, Holy Maggid and Holy Shekinah. In these teachings and practices there is a continuum of practice for the invocation of the Holy Maggid and the subjugation of shedim as oath-bound wrathful guardians of the Continuum of Light Transmission. This is among the Holy Names called upon in invocations of the Holy Maggid and in the generation of the Body of Glory in the form of the Holy Maggid; but specifically, it holds the knowledge and power of the invocation of the Holy Maggid subjugating the shedim to the service of the Light Continuum.

Thus, it is said that when King Solomon built the Holy Temple for the Shekinah of Yahweh to dwell in he invoked shedim and subjugated them to the service of building it, and according to masters of the tradition, this was among the Holy Names of God that Solomon called up to bind the shedim in the continuum of building the Holy Temple.

This alludes to another power in this Holy Name that it is given that we may speak – it is a Name called upon in the building and consecration of a holy temple, and through it the temple below is linked to the celestial temple above, becoming as an emanation of that Holy Temple of the Living Word in Shamaim, the heavens.

It is also given by the Holy Spirit that we may speak another power and mystery in this Name of God – the angels of our Heavenly Father and our Earthly Mother are joined by invoking this Holy Name, so that the angels of our Earthly Mother become chariots of the angels of our Heavenly Father. This, for example, transpired when and angel spoke to the sorcerer Balaam through the ass, and when the prophet Elijah was fed by ravens, and likewise, when the oxen sang in worship while pulling the cart with the Holy Ark upon it, as taught in the Midrashim.

A Holy Meditation with the Name: Empowering the Angels of God

When you wish to strength the holy angels of God and increase their influence in your life and the world, let go of selfish thoughts and desires, and remember the Messiah and Yahweh – the Human One of Light and Light Continuum; turn away from the darkness and turn towards the Holy Light.

Cleave to the Messiah and Shekinah of Messiah with your heart and soul, mind and strength, and pray and meditate, worshipping in the presence of Yahweh Elohim; and let there be a celebration of the Holy Wedding Feast, with praise and thanks and great jubilation.

When you go to consecrate the bread and wine, unify the Pillar of Judgment into the Pillar of Mercy and invoke the Name: Vo-Vo-La, and hold the conscious intention of the empowerment of the holy angels of God in the Mystical Body and Blood of the Messiah.

Then from Keter to Malkut draw down the shefa and ruhaniyot into the bread and wine, and through this theurgic action draw it into the world of angels; as the Divine I Am, bless the holy angels of God and bless the people – and then partake on behalf of all in heaven and on earth.

When the Light of the True Cross is extended, above and below, and the Name of Yah is praised, the movement is complete.

This is the practice.

*Often you ask the angels to carry your prayers in ascent and to pray for you in heaven, and so, as the angels pray for you, remember to pray for the angels that they should be empowered in their service to heaven – in the midst of receiving, always remember to give, for the Foundation of Creation is Reciprocity, and the Good is All-Giving.

A Practice among the Navim: Invocation of the Holy Maggid Subjugating Shedim

When it is time, let the son or daughter of the navim prepare a holy sanctuary and retreat, and let them tend to a continuum of self-purification and works of charity, and as they tend the continuum let them pray for knowledge and conversation with their Holy Maggid, and yet more, for the most intimate communion with the Maggid in the Light Continuum, the Shekinah of Yahweh.

Now here it must be said that self-purification is crucial – for according to the intention of the heart is the spirit that comes, so that if the heart is encrusted by selfishness and the lust for magic-power in selfish ambition it will not be the Holy Maggid that comes, but rather an “angel” of the Other Side that is not holy or divine, and that deceiving spirit will not lead the soul into knowledge of God and union with God, but rather it will inspire the soul to become as a son or daughter of rebellion, filled with arrogance and pride. Thus, let the son or daughter of the navim pay special attention to self-purification and self-knowledge if they would invoke the communion of the Holy Maggid, and let them bring the evil inclination – the desire to receive for self-alone, into the service of the good inclination – the desire to give, through good works and acts of loving-kindness. As Adonai Yeshua teaches us, “The greatest among you is the servant of all” – the one who humbles themselves before the presence of God (El); be humble in spirit.

Now, when you have tended the continuum, progressively intensifying your worship from one equinox to the next, or from one solstice to the next – when the Holy Day comes, in spiritual retreat, at dawn bathe and anoint yourself, and put on clean white robes, and having prepared the altar and sanctuary the evening before, wrap yourself in your holy mantle and go into it – banish, call upon The Name, and call upon the Divine Powers, and when you have received the Holy Shekinah make offerings, worshipping in the presence of Yahweh.

Then, intone the Shema and proclaim the Gospel of Shalom, and bow yourself down before the holy altar upon which the Shekinah of Yahweh has come to rest, and call upon the Holy Maggidim of the Three-Who-Come, holding kavvanah upon the Lad, Torahkiel Yahweh in the midst.

Then, rise up in your Body of Light, putting on the Blessed Name before the Prince of the Face, and as you rise up in Body of Light ascend the Holy Sefirot of the Pillar of Compassion, joining your soul to it – then take up the chant:

Eheieh, Yahweh, Yeshua, El Hai, Adonai; and when the influx of Holy Light emits from the brow of the Great Maggid of the Messiah, intone:

Ya-Va-Ha-Vi-Vo-La-Hu

And then intone the Holy Name:

Va-Va-La

As you intone the Holy Name hold the conscious intention of the invocation of your Holy Maggid – the guide and guardian of your soul, the watcher who stands over you in the world of angels.

If the Hoy Maggid does not come and Ruach Ha-Kodesh does not rest upon you do not turn aside, but further purify yourself and increase your passionate zeal in worship and every day at dawn invoke in this way until the Holy Maggid comes – but if the Holy Maggid does not come in seven days and the Holy Spirit does not take you up, then you must turn aside, for you are not ready and it is not time, it is not God’s will. If this is the case then the continuum for communion with your Holy Maggid must be set aside and enacted from the very beginning another time.

If the Holy Maggid comes and the Holy Spirit takes you up – entertain knowledge and conversation with the Holy Maggid, and seek knowledge of preparation for the rite of subjugation from the Watcher; take up communion with the Holy Maggid every morning and evening, and in between abide in study and contemplation of the Holy Torah and Gospel, and occupy yourself with the worship of Yahweh and prayers for the salvation of all living spirits and souls.

Now, the subjugation of the shedim enacts the tikkunim of the vessels of the Body of Supernal Adam (the Human One); when Adam sinned it was just as the Holy Queen of the Shabbat was drawing near, and averting his gaze to another and breaking covenant, his “seed” was cast into another other than his Divine Consort, and so, too, Eve consorted with the Serpent, Samael, at that time – this is the time for the subjugation of the shedim born of this “sin” of the Human One, Adam and Eve.

Just as the eve of Shabbat comes, arise in Body of Light as Hayyah Yeshua and call upon the Name of the Holy Maggid, and in the presence of the Maggid conjure the crowned chieftains and the chieftains of the nations, and let them confess the blessed Name of the Messiah, the Sun of El, and let them give their vow as wrathful guardians – with each, let the corresponding klippah in your soul be transformed and rectified, the holy spark uplifted and reintegrated with the Light Continuum by way of the Tikkunim (Sefirot).

When this is accomplished, having opened the way for the Reception of the Holy Bride go out and escort her into the Bridal Chamber and let the Holy Wedding Feast be celebrated.

All of this is done for the sake of heaven, and for the deliverance of souls from their bondage – the extension of the Light of the True Cross; and so throughout, actively receive living spirits and souls seeking refuge into the Holy Sanctuary, and actively pray for the liberation of the people and the land from all shades and shadows, and for their healing and illumination – when you are drawn in ascent by Ruach Ha-Kodesh and joined to your Holy Maggid in the Mystical Body of the Messiah, as Our Lord and Savior did in the resurrection and ascension, uplift the world with you, and take up the action of the Great Maggid of the Messiah, fulfilling the heart-wishes of all souls.

This completes the continuum and movement – this is the practice.

Now so long as you walk in beauty and holiness, wearing the Blessed Name, the Body of Vision, the Holy Maggid will walk with you and will labor with you in the Way; but invoking the Watcher it is good to bear in mind that the holy angels of God can remember for good or remember for evil, and that as a guide in the Holy Spirit and Light Continuum, the Watcher may be peaceful, blissful or wrathful, all as may lead a soul in the Way, Truth and Life Divine – remember to walk with Ha-Shem as Enoch walked with Ha-Shem, and you will be uplifted.

In due season, being resurrected, prepare yourself for the full mystical death – the time of cessation in the crossing, when knowledge and conversation with the Holy Guardian Angels must be sacrificed to know and see Yahweh in full; do not cleave to the Maggid, but cleave with your whole being to Adonai Messiah and to Hayyah Abba.

This is the way of communion with the Holy Maggid – when you pass through the great wilderness and the angel passes into cessation with you, when the Holy Maggid appears again from the Body of Truth, you will know the Great Glory of Yahweh, joined in union with Yeshua in Yah – this is the fruition of the continuum of communion.

*This is not a practice for the novice, but for those receiving the oral transmission and empowerment to take it up – it is a practice among adepts of the Holy Order; but the nature of the practice is such that even contemplating it is a blessing, therefore the traditional instructions are openly shared here.

The Angels of the Name

Vandimael, Vinadmichael and Lekahkmiel are the angels of this Holy Name; they are from the order of Watchers and hold secret knowledge of the true Way of Enoch and mysteries of the Lower and Upper World of Angels.

This concludes our sacred discourse on the Forty-Third Name of Gevurot through the grace of God that pours out in the Pentecost. Hallelu Yah! Praise the Lord! Amen.

The Forty-Third Name of Hasidim: Nun-Dalet-Mem

This Holy Name holds many mysteries and powers – according to the tradition, the evil inclination has its root in the blood, and only through a spiritual alchemical process is the blood purified of the taint of the Serpent; the secret of this alchemical process is in this Name of God, as is the power for the purification of the blood – what is unclean is made clean through this Holy Name.

Since the advent of the Messiah and the proclamation of the Gospel this has become an open secret, however – it is known and understood by anyone who wishes to look and see; the secret is in the fourth heaven of Zebul and how souls are able to ascend into the fifth heaven of Ma’on, and we behold it in the Image of the Crucifixion when Adonai poured out his Holy Blood and shed the Serpent’s skin. If you open your heart and mind to the Messiah of El and meditate upon the Holy Crucifix, calling upon this Name of God, the Holy Spirit will reveal this mystery to you.

Just as this Name corresponds to the spiritual alchemical process through which the “spirit in the blood” is purified – the alchemy of passionate devekut; so, too, it corresponds to the practice of Inner Heat through which the subtle body is also purified and made a fit and holy vessel of the Supernal Light-presence.

Now all of this holds an esoteric connection to another mystery and power of this Holy Name of God – in this Holy Name is the empowerment to open the Fifty Gates of Understanding (Binah), the Doors of the Four Fundamentals, and to receive the full influx of the Holy Sefirot from all of the Olamot; in an instant this Holy Name can accomplish the Great Convocation.

As much as a grand invocation of all influxes of the Holy Sefirot – the Mystical Body of the Risen Messiah, it is also a Name of the Great Ascension and holds the knowledge and power of crossing the Great Abyss into the Supernal Abode, the perfection of prophecy.

In this you may know and understand the intimate connection between the Forty-Third Names of Gevurot and Hasidim, for when it is time for the adept to pass through the Place of Crossing, this Name teaches the knowledge of this mystery and how it is accomplished.

In this Name of God you may understand the Holy Tzaddik as the “Foundation of the World” and as a Gate of the Pleroma of Light in the world

Now all of this is very lofty and esoteric, and yet in this Holy Name is a very practical power – often, during times of transition, before the old passes away and the new appears it is difficult to look and see what is to be done to facilitate the transition or change; in such times, cleaving to the Messiah and Shekinah of Messiah, and calling upon this Holy Name in prayer and meditation, we can look and see what can be done in the in-between.

Along a similar line, initiates of the Order of St. Lazarus frequently call upon this Holy Name for the knowledge of skillful means to help souls in transition and their sojourn through the in-betweens of the afterlife – it empowers knowledge and understanding of all movements in in-betweens.

In this, perhaps, you may acquire some insight into this Holy Name of God – calling upon it you will gain even greater insight if God is willing.

A Meditation upon the Name: Knowledge in Transition

We all know very well our experience during times of larger transitions in life – the void spaces in-between the cycles of life when one cycle is coming to an end and another is beginning, but we are not exactly in one or the other; it is a time that we are very susceptible to anxiety, stress, insecurities and fears, and all manner of negativities or internal klippot, and when we give way to them we link with external klippot, which can bring all manner of obstructions and tribulations during times of transition.

For the most part, much of this is due to frustration arising from feelings of confusion and uncertainty – our projection of fears into the void of unknowing; instead of living in reaction and giving way to negativity, we can embrace the void of unknowing, cleave to the Messiah and turn to God in prayer seeking guidance, and we can call upon this Holy Name seeking knowledge of what can be done in the in-between.

Call upon Ha-Shem and invoke the Divine Powers – receive the Holy Shekinah and cleave to the Messiah, and inquire of Ha-Shem and the Divine Powers what might be done, praying for illumination through the Holy Spirit.

Then, join your soul to all of the Sefirot in ascent, as to the Mystical Body of the Messiah and chant Yahweh Yeshua Adonai, activating the Name, then call upon the Name:

Nu-Da-Mey

Whatever you are inspired or guided to do let that be done – do whatever the Holy Spirit and the Divine Powers show you, even if what they ask you to do is abide in unknowing.

Then, give praise and thanks to God, and pray for all who are in transition. This completes the movement – this is the practice.

*Of course, it is an open secret that we are always in an in-between, for that is the very nature of the Realm of Becoming, the Entirety, it is compose of In-Betweens.

A Practice among the Navim: Mystery of the Crossing

When a daughter or son of the navim wishes knowledge of the Mystery of the Crossing they may call upon this Holy Name.

They will take up a continuum of purification and generation of merit, and they will meditate upon the Mystery of the Passion and Crucifixion; when it is time they will perform a Union with Yeshua in the Cross, and as Yeshua on the Cross they will perform Giving and Receiving, delivering the world and all who are in it from their bondage to sin.

When Giving and Receiving is accomplished, they will take up the chant: Yah Yahweh Yeshua Eheieh, and then Hayyah Abba Eheieh, and as they do they will descend in Body of Light to gather sparks from below, and gathering sparks they will rise up in Body of Light and intone the Name: Na-Da-Ma, as they intone the Name for the final time, they will envision Clear Light Union.

If God is willing and they are willing, in this they will know and understand the Holy Mystery.

This movement is made complete with the celebration of the Holy Wedding Feast.

This is the practice.

Angels of the Name

Nuriel, Dumiel and Mazazael are the holy angels of this Name of God; they come from the order of the of the Hashmalim and bear secret knowledge of the cessation of the Judgment and God’s mercy in the appearance of Judgment – they instruct in the lesser and greater love of the LORD.

This concludes our sacred discourse on the Forty-Third Names of Hasidim and Gevurot through the grace of the illumination God grants us in the Holy Spirit. Hallelu El – Praise God! Amen.

O Adonai, we praise and bless Your Holy Name and we pray You draw us near to Yourself so that we might be empowered to draw others in ascent – May Your Holy Will be done among us as it is in heaven; amen.

Blessings & shalom!

Greetings and blessings in the light of the Holy One!

Looking into the meanings of the letters of the Forty-Third Name of Hasidim, Nun-Dalet-Mem, using R. Seidman's “The Oracle of Kabbalah” the following attributions stand out:

"Nun – growth and decline, descent and resurrection, jubilee; swim, at home amid the ebbing and flowing currents of life;
Dalet – Door, Doorway, Threshold;
Mem – Water, Womb,Mercy; express compassion, aspire to be fluid and flowing"


Our Tau shared: “This Holy Name holds many mysteries and powers – according to the tradition, the evil inclination has its root in the blood, and only through a spiritual alchemical process is the blood purified of the taint of the Serpent; the secret of this alchemical process is in this Name of God, as is the power for the purification of the blood – what is unclean is made clean through this Holy Name.”

and
“Along a similar line, initiates of the Order of St. Lazarus frequently call upon this Holy Name for the knowledge of skillful means to help souls in transition and their sojourn through the in-betweens of the afterlife – it empowers knowledge and understanding of all movements in in-betweens.”

The mysteries of purification and of moving through in-betweens seem very much implied by the meanings of the three letters of the name. They all speak of our openess in times of transition and our connectedness to the Holy Spirit, not falling into negativity. This name seems to imply non-attachment or seeing the good in everything that is happening as an active work of purification. It seems in this work is the mercy, the compassion of the Holy One and it is only possible with our complete self-offering, not holding something of ourself back.

I am very grateful for any corrections to these thoughts. It would be wonderful if more could be drawn out concerning the meaning of the letters of this name.

On this Holy Shabbat, may we open to the love and light of the Holy One in everything that happens!

In Gratitude,
Martina

Forty-Third Names and the Thirty-sixth Gevurot

#3 Postby staroath » Mon Oct 27, 2014 3:40 pm

Shalom!
Adding to the contemplation, may I add the 36th name of the Gevurot:: Mem-Nun-Dalet, which has become a dear friend to me during times of tribulation, healing in a miraculous way many a time.

For as has been written by Tau "Mem is the Holy Letter beginning the word Messiah – the Anointed, who is the “Son of Nun,” the one who is slain and raised up from death to eternal life in God; Dalet is the everlasting door, the gateway of the Great Exodus, or the Great Resurrection and Ascension revealed in the Messiah."

In times of great paralyzing fear, a great comfort has come in the following, found in our commentary on the 36th Gevurot:

"Come into yourself – go within, and turn to God in prayer; bring your fear to Adonai and lay it before the El of your Yeshua, the God of your salvation. In the presence of the Messiah and El let your fear arise and look into it, inquiring exactly what you are afraid of, and look and see if it is real or imagined, if what you fear is in fact in what’s happening or not – either way, offer it up to Adonai Messiah and El, and ask for the empowerment to walk through your fear, empowerment from Ruach Ha-Messiah, and ask for the transformation of your fear into the great exhilaration of faith, heightened awareness and sensitivity of Ruach Ha-Kodesh."

The simple act of drawing the letters on paper and visualizing them in the air before me and contemplation of the associated netivot, sefirot, Mother letter, planetary and astrological correspondence, along with the offering of the issue up to Messiah for "the empowerment to walk through the fear, and transformation into a great exhilaration of faith" and so on, well I am humbled to even speak of the miraculous healing power of these letter heroes, emblazened in the Robes of Messiah.

Blessings!

Grace and peace to you in Hayyah Yeshua!

If we look into the three letters composing this Name of God there is a process of dissolution, mystical death, and regeneration, rebirth (Nun), and then, following this the soul is elevated, new levels of consciousness and intelligence arise, and the awareness of a new way or direction in life dawns (Dalet). This brings the realization and embodiment of a higher, more expanded consciousness and greater intelligence (Mem, Mochin).

The key though is dissolution, death, a complete self-negation in surrender to the Infinite One, or a most passionate, radical cleaving in love, in which oneself is utterly consumed and lost in the embrace of the Beloved. This naturally corresponds with a breakthrough, self-transcendence, and an ascension or expansion of the mind, consciousness or soul – the realization of peace and joy in the Messiah, and freedom.

If we contemplate this Holy Name and what has been shared we will see that it is a Name of God that holds the power of aliyat neshamah, mystical ascensions of the soul, or the development of consciousness beyond the body and the capacity to travel into realms and worlds of the inner dimensions.

Now looking into this on a deeper level, once I heard a prophet in the palace of the Messiah reveal an esoteric intention for the invocation of this Name. In this teaching Nun is the Fifty Gates of Understanding (Binah), Dalet is Da’at (knowledge) of those gates, and their corresponding powers, and Mem is the Mochin, mind or intelligence able to acquire this secret wisdom. Thus, at times this Name has been used by navim, prophets, to invoke spiritual influxes of the Fifty Gates. As we know, however, it is only through the Messiah that the Fiftieth Gate is accessed.

These were a few thoughts I was inclined to share this morning.

Shalom Aleichem!

Shalom Dear Tau and Friends!

Thank you for this deepening understanding of the Forty-Third Name in Hasidim.

In contemplating dissolution as a manifestation or reception of Mercy, it comes to mind that through dissolution and drawing out the good, seeing God, in the dissolution, a greater faith can be gifted or generated. A faith beyond words and concepts.

Perhaps this is a key to understanding suffering. In letting go, letting name and form dissolve in the midst of suffering, this is the moment of the greatest gift of faith.

With gratitude,

Sheryl

Grace and peace to you in Hayyah Yeshua! Amen.

The perfection of faith is in this dissolution dear sister, as we witness with Adonai Yeshua who went to the cross to enact a complete self-offering for the sake of the salvation of souls and the glorification of God Most High, and in so doing enacted perfect faith. With this we may include the many holy men and women, before and after him, who refused to betray their faith, even on the pains of great persecution and death. In this perfection of faith, of course, there is the perfection of hope, for to pass into full dissolution one must have hope in the Almighty, that through God’s power one will be restored, reintegrated, healed and uplifted – made complete, all as has been ordained from the very outset of creation. With this, there is also an abundance of love, a passionate love that’s fulfilled when the soul vanishes in the embrace of the One; and all of these lead to the experience of an unimaginable divine rapture, an immeasurable bliss, joined with a profound peace such as cannot be spoken.

The perfection of faith, hope and love, these are actions, good works – the delight of self-offering, or dissolution.

Shalom Aleichem!
