Community of Israel, Anointed Community: Holy Shekinah

#1 Postby Tau Malachi » Tue Jan 14, 2020 2:57 pm

Assembly of Israel, Anointed Community: Malkut - Holy Shekinah

Assembly of Israel, Anointed Community, these are Cognomens of Malkut, the Holy Shekinah. There is a secret mystery to be spoken concerning these Cognomens of Shekinah, the Indweller, and Malkut - ‘kingdom of heaven.’

When there is a gathering of faithful and spiritual people for sacred discourse, or for prayer, meditation, and worship, at the outset understand that the Holy Shekinah, Anointed Community, is hovering ‘above,’ as it were, and unless those who are gathered together uplift their minds and hearts, and ascend ‘above,’ joining together in one mind and heart unified in the love of the Messiah, the love of God Most High, and cleaving to the Holy One, Anointed Community, the fullness of the Shekinah of Messiah does not ‘descend,’ ‘come down,’ and therefore Anointed Community, Holy Shekinah, is not made manifest in that assembly, or as that gathering; there is no true light and life in it.

In any gathering of spiritual community, even if just two or three, unless those gathered uplift their heart and soul, mind and life, initiating an ‘ascent,’ and unify their minds and hearts in the love of the Messiah - the Anointing, opening to the One Soul and Holy Shekinah, the fullness of the Holy Shekinah cannot rest upon them and indwell them, her unveiling, revelation, cannot transpire in that place.

Understand, ‘above’ is ‘inward,’ and going within, gathering inward, is ‘rising above,’ an ‘ascent of the soul;’ and when we gather in the Blessed Name we must go within and be ingathered, and go deeper still into that ‘place’ the Messiah and Holy One abide, that ‘place’ in which there is the love and compassion of the Messiah - the awareness of all things in their inwardness, the Messiah in all things, and so the awareness of one life, one heart, one mind, and one soul — the Eternal Life of the Messiah, Body of Messiah, Sacred Heart of Messiah, Divine Mind of Messiah, and the Soul of Messiah, the Soul of God.

This is the manifestation of the spiritual Assembly of Israel, and if in Messiah - the Anointing with the Supernal Light and Spirit, so supernal Assembly of Israel, Anointed Community; when this transpires in a gathering of faithful and spiritual people the ‘kingdom of heaven has come near,’ for the kingdom of heaven - Malkut, Shekinah of Messiah - is manifest in that place, more or less.

If not in knowledge - direct awareness - then in faith, remembering that God, the Messiah and Holy Shekinah, is always with us, and setting our minds and hearts on those things that are ‘above’ - heaven, Messiah, and Holy One (or Sefirot), and remembering our innate oneness with the Messiah in God Most High - remembering our transcendence. In this the fullness of the Holy Shekinah can rest upon us and shine from within us; the Holy Spirit can take up her full Divine Action with, in and through us, and that Divine Presence may even manifest as us - such is the power of the Sanctuary of Grace in Adonai Yeshua Messiah and the Holy Bride, the Magdalene.

There must be an ingathering, though, whether in knowledge or faith, with love and compassion, open and sensitive to the Divine Presence, Holy Shekinah, Holy Spirit; this must be our conscious intention - kavvanah - as we inwardly cleave - devekut - to the Messiah and Holy Spirit.

Here, of course, we are speaking of a mystical understanding of the commandment to love the Lord our God - Yahweh Elohenu - with all of our heart and soul, mind and strength; but then naturally, gathering together in the Blessed Name we need to honor the extension of this holy commandment and ‘love our neighbors as ourself’ - loving one another, laboring to see the good in one another, and being open and sensitive to one another as we are to the Holy Shekinah, Holy Spirit. In this Anointed Community is made manifest when we gather in the Blessed Name, and this truly is what it means to ‘gather together in the Blessed Name.’

As Adonai Yeshua teaches, ‘Where two or more are gathered in my Name, I am with them’ - the fullness of the Shekinah of Messiah rests upon them, indwells them, and surrounds them on all sides, and with those gathered in this way is her ‘good company’ - the hosts of heaven.

There is, as we know, a more excellent way in the Straight Path - one most direct, though it is certainly not removed from what has been shared. When we gather we do, indeed, abide ingathered, inward, and we seek to see, hear, and feel with God, and smell, taste, and touch with God - and so, to speak with God and know with God; we seek to let our body be as the Body of God, our heart as the Heart of God, our mind as the Mind of God, and our soul as the One Soul, Soul of God. Taking this up with clear conscious intention, with knowledge, or with faith, in our innate oneness with the Messiah in God Most High through Divine Grace this holy intention, desire, may come to pass and be realized in our experience.

Joined with this there is something to be said of the Holy Shekinah, the Holy Spirit - the Indweller. The Holy Shekinah, Holy Spirit, cannot ‘rest upon’ a depressed person - one unwilling to uplift their heart and mind - and more so, the Holy Spirit cannot take up her full Divine Action with, in, and through a person who cleaves to darkness, klippot - husks of impurity, shades, and shadows. If she were to do so it would defeat her purpose, and likewise it would violate the free will given to us by God Most High to choose to open to the light and enter the light or to love darkness and cleave to it; hence, our choice between what is good and true or what is not good and false. Quite naturally when we gather if we cleave to darkness, klippot, and are unwilling to open to the Holy Light and Spirit, to that extent the fullness of the Holy Shekinah, Holy Spirit, is diminished with us and within the gathering, the full movement of the Holy Spirit, in effect, being impaired. God help us and God have mercy upon us in such moments of ignorance, forgetfulness, confusion!

In this, perhaps, you may understand that in gatherings of mystical community, gnostic circle, that as we gather together outwardly we must co-labor to be ingathered, inward all together - gathering together with open hearts and minds in faith and love, and knowledge of God. If and when we do then indeed through Divine Grace there will be the manifestation of Anointed Community with us - Shekinah of the Messiah, Shekinah of Yahweh.

May we all hold this in our heart and hold this as our conscious intention as we gather in the Blessed Name, and through the grace and mercy of the Holy One may it come to pass that we abide in Anointed Community - Holy Shekinah of Messiah, and that she has a perpetual dwelling in us! Amen.

Yeshua Shalom!

Blessings to you in the Holy Light of Melekh Messiah!

There is more to be shared of the mystery of Community of Israel, Anointed Community, descending upon a gathering, and the drawing out of the Holy Shekinah, Holy Spirit, from within them.

Perhaps you may recall that, as well as saying that he would be present anywhere two or more gathered in the Blessed Name, Yeshua Messiah also said that whenever two or more agree on a divine intention, a divine action, in invocation and prayer, that whatever was ‘bound on earth would be bound in heaven’ and whatever was ‘loosed on earth would be loosed in heaven.’

Understand that when Anointed Community descends upon a gathering, and the Holy Shekinah, Holy Spirit, is brought forth from within them and they abide together in peace, unified in heart and mind in the love and compassion of the Messiah, as Anointed Community is ‘brought down’ so they may reach upward and ascend, cleaving from ‘grade to grade’ until the Supernal Crown, and if and when they ascend with the Holy Shekinah, Holy Spirit, in this way they may invoke and bring forth the corresponding influxes, even the direct influx of the Supernal Crown (Keter), radiance of the Supernal Crown.

If and when a gathering of two or more is gathered in the Blessed Name and they ‘agree’ with one mind and heart they may ascend to the Righteous One (Yesod) - Holy Tzaddik, Holy Apostle - in that movement and manifestation of the Holy Shekinah, Holy Spirit, and corresponding divine actions, prophecies, healings, deliverances, wonders, and so on may transpire. If and when there is a reaching, ascent, to the Righteous One, then there may be a reaching and ascent to Messiah (Tiferet), and likewise in that movement and manifestation of the Holy Shekinah, Holy Spirit, and corresponding divine actions, there may transpire a greater play of the Living Presence, Living Spirit, of the Eternal One (Yahweh) in revelation and Light Transmission. Through the Messiah, of course, reaching that ‘rung,’ ‘grade,’ in the Middle Pillar, there can be a reaching beyond to Da’at - knowledge of God - and more so to Habad (Wisdom, Understanding and Knowledge of the Most High), and there may even be a reaching into the Supernal Crown and the inmost point of that Holy Crown, the ‘Ancient of Days’ (Atik Yomin).

As we speak of these deeper, inner and secret mysteries of Community of Israel, Anointed Community, please do not lose sight of the essential and simple teaching of the manifestation of Anointed Community in a gathering, the descent of Anointed Community upon those gathered in sincerity and truth in the Blessed Name; that is the essential key and foundation to anything more we might speak of this secret mystery of Community of Israel, Malkut-Shekinah of Messiah, everything more that might transpire with, in, and through Anointed Community, and when unified with us, so with, in and through us.

Now the degree to which souls gathered in the Blessed Name may ascend from ‘grade to grade’ and a greater manifestation and movement of the Holy Shekinah, Holy Spirit can happen among them is determined by faith and love, and inwardness, and their focused intention (kavvanah) and cleaving (devekut) held together; the greater their faith and love, the greater their concentration and cleaving, the greater their inwardness and their unification with one another in the Holy Shekinah, Holy Spirit, and the further their reaching on the Middle Pillar. Do understand that it is not the responsibility of an Anointed Tzaddik, Apostle, in a gathering to uplift the entire gathering, or only some among them to do so, but gathering in the Blessed Name it is the responsibility of all who gather, all who are present, in faith and love. If indeed we have faith, and we believe, it is incumbent upon all of us to strive with the Holy Spirit to ‘bring the Anointed Community down’ and to seek to ‘rise up from grade to grade’ for we have been called and been chosen for this spiritual labor of the kingdom of heaven and the glorification of God.


When Community of Israel, Anointed Community, ‘descends’ upon a gathering there are naturally movements of the Holy Spirit with those who are gathered, various insights and illuminations, spiritual and mystical experiences, and there may be deliverances, healings, and so on, of individuals through the Holy Spirit. When those who are gathered further uplift their minds and hearts, and reach the Righteous One with their souls, they are all accounted as righteous in that movement of the Holy Spirit, and as such they are as comrades, or siblings, of the angels; there is a reaching into Netzach-Victory and Hod-Glory through Yesod, or Yahweh Tzavaot and Elohim Tzavaot — hence, the ‘world of angels,’ ‘hosts of heaven.’ Thus arrays of hosts of heaven join with them in invocation and prayer, and as they pray angelic forces move with, in, and through them, all as God wills, all as God ordains. As this happens, quite naturally, there are greater movements of the Holy Spirit, greater blessings flow, greater wonders transpire. Great blessings flow out into the world for all who desire to receive them. If and when those who are gathered reach further inward, upward, to the Messiah - Tiferet - so they reach into Hesed-Mercy and Gevurah-Judgment, and reach into the world of archangelic powers and supernal angels, and in this is the power as they invoke, pray, and worship to decree and to negate decrees, or to ‘release and retain sin.’ If there is a further ascent beyond to Knowledge of God (Da’at), or to Habad of the Messiah - Wisdom, Understanding, and Knowledge, there may be greater revelations of the Messiah and God Most High among them, and if in this through the grace and mercy of God in the Messiah they reach into the radiance of the Supernal Crown (Keter) there may be direct Supernal Influx, more or less, and radical plays of Light Transmission and actions of the Holy Spirit among them - and if among them so elsewhere in the world among the faithful and spiritual. Reaching into the Supernals there is the play of God praying to God and what is spoken comes to pass just as it is spoken, beyond that of ‘decrees.’

Understand this may happen in any gathering in the Blessed Name, gatherings for invocation, prayer, meditation, or worship, but also study and contemplation, sacred discourse and spiritual fellowship; anytime, anywhere, those gathering are ingathered, inward in faith and love, with conscious intention and cleaving to the Messiah, joined with Community of Israel, Anointed Community - Shekinah of Messiah.

Those who gather, though, must have faith, must believe, and they must love God and one another, and so be inwardly unified in the Messiah and Holy One.

Here of course we are speaking of the ways of mystical community - the ‘Interior Church’ - but do understand that whenever, and wherever, there are gatherings in the Blessed Name in sincere and mature faith and love, Divine Grace may take up that congregation; hence, whether in a mystical and gnostic community or a luminous outer church, Anointed Community may be ‘brought down.’ It is all about the power of faith and love, and the Divine Grace that is manifest in Yeshua Messiah, and that is the Messiah - the Anointing of God.

This seems enough for today; here it is given for me to abide silent, waiting upon the Spirit of God.

O Holy One, through your Divine Grace may Anointed Community continue to be manifest in this world until the End-Of-Days when all is accomplished! Amen.

Shalom Aleichem!

Shalom Tau Malachi!

I have been very much taken up in this contemplation that you shared. You spoke about the work Makom—dwelling place. Makom, like Mayim—water, and Miriam—name of the mother of Yeshua, begins and ends with a mem. The first mem is open, and the second one is closed. I was contemplating this as the space we make in this world for God, and the space in the world to come, the space that already just is, and in this word is the joining of these two spaces. In this way, could we also contemplate these two mems as upper and lower Shekinah?

It is interesting, the quoph and the vav in the midst. The quoph can be our bestial desire, having to do with the back of the neck, where the most primitive part of the brain lies. The vav can be The Six—Zer Anpin, little face, which has to do with the Messiah. I’m seeing these two letters as the redemption and healing of our bestial nature through the agency of Messiah. All of this is encompassed by the fullness of the Shekinah.

Makom, comes from the root: קוֹם meaning—pattern. This makes me think about weaving and matrices of creating. We weave, with the Shekinah, every pattern of energy that is brought into this world. I am seeing this as our capacity to be co-creators with God. You often remind, “We are always praying. The only question is to whom are we praying, and what are the prayers?” This praying or speaking power that was given to Adam is a power of manifesting. I am thinking about manifesting as making a pattern or space in the material realm for something to exist. It has been said, “If you create the necessary conditions for something to arise, it will.”

You said: “If not in knowledge - direct awareness - then in faith, remembering that God, the Messiah and Holy Shekinah, is always with us, and setting our minds and hearts on those things that are ‘above’ - heaven, Messiah and Holy One (or Sefirot), and remembering our innate oneness with the Messiah in God Most High - remembering our transcendence. In this the fullness of the Holy Shekinah can rest upon us and shine from within us, the Holy Spirit can take up her full Divine Action with, in and through us, and that Divine Presence may even manifest as us - such is the power of the Sanctuary of Grace in Adonai Yeshua Messiah and the Holy Bride, the Magdalene.”

In this remembrance of our innate oneness, if the Divine Presence manifests as the Tzaddik, is there a merging of the two mem, upper and lower? This brings to mind how Yeshua can say, “I and the Father are One.”

“…please do not lose sight of the essential and simple teaching of the manifestation of Anointed Community in a gathering, the descent of Anointed Community upon those gathered in sincerity and truth in the Blessed Name…” This reminds me that all of this is more simple and accessible than I had ever imagined. It seems like it all starts with faith? Because If I have not experienced something of the oneness of God, yet I have faith that this is the truth of reality, and this is innate, through Grace, I may experience it. Even if one has experienced something of this, I imagine there are times when a kind of dullness sets in, either through things like grief or a physical illness. In these times, it is so powerful to just imagine, to just have faith that I am seeing with God’s eyes. hearing with God’s ears, etc… I also wonder how many times praying while in the midst of this dullness uplifts those who may not know how to pray or those whose faith is weak.

“Do understand that it is not the responsibility of an Anointed Tzaddik, Apostle, in a gathering to uplift the entire gathering, or only some among them to do so, but gathering in the Blessed Name it is the responsibility of all who gather, all who are present, in faith and love.” In this, I am thinking of the blessed name, Yeshua יהשוה. There are five letters in the name, and all five have a specific intention and energy. It is the interaction and pattern of these letters that create the energy, not any singular letter in and of itself. We can’t say that the yod is any more special because it’s first, and we can’t say that the first heh is any more special than the second heh. But, each of the letters has a special task and carries a special energy. The yod can’t to do the task of the shin, and two vav wouldn’t be the same as two heh.

In the same way, in the blessed community, we each carry specific energies and tikkunim that are unique to us. We absolutely need Elders and Tau to set the tone, to guide and to bring in new revelations. But without the companions, there would be no Elders and Tau, and without the companions each bringing their energy, their revelations and prayers, it would fall flat. I am thinking of community as a spider’s web, with the Shekinah being the spider. If any part of the web were to decide that it’s not worthy, the whole web would collapse. Likewise, with a rug. The whole rug is knotted and woven together. If there is a tear in the rug, it must be mended immediately, otherwise the whole rug is at risk of unraveling.

May we be blessed to have the faith and gnosis of our divine manifestation power, as speaking ones! Amen.

Blessings and Shalom,
Marion

Grace and peace to you in Hayyah Yeshua and El Elyon!

The mysteries of the Holy Mother and Bride as Makom are another thread of discussion elsewhere, but Community of Israel, Anointed Community is, indeed, Kallah - Bride, the Shekinah of Messiah (Malkut). Concerning the Holy Mother-Bride and this mystery of bringing down Community of Israel, Anointed Community, there is something we might share from the Book of Revelation.

Perhaps you may recall the Woman of Light - Imma Israel - who with the wings of the great eagle flies to a sanctuary prepared for her in the wilderness, taking refuge there, dwelling there. That holy sanctuary in the ‘wilderness’ - this world ruled by the present darkness - is wherever there is a true gathering in faith and love in the Blessed Name, and those gathered are inward and are unified with one another in the Messiah - there she descends and there she dwells in them and surrounding them on all sides, she is a Dwelling Place for them and they are a dwelling place for her, the Holy Shekinah, Holy Spirit, manifesting with, in and through that gathering, that holy assembly.

In that New Jerusalem is called the ‘Bride of the Lamb’ understand that such holy gatherings in the Blessed Name which bring down Anointed Community and that strive with the Holy Spirit to ascend, uplifting Anointed Community - manifesting the Shekinah of Messiah in full power and glory - are generating, forming, making the reality of New Jerusalem in the World-That-Is-Coming. This spiritual labor in this world is a spiritual labor for the World-To-Come and those who take it up are established in the World-To-Come.

All of this transpires in the Holy Mother-Bride, and as we know through these mystical ascensions of souls in the Messiah the Mother and Bride are unified, joined as One Divine Presence and Power - Shekinah of Yahweh, Yeshua.

Here we may point out another way of speaking about the ascension from grade to grade, contemplating Malkut - Anointed Community - through the four Olamot-Universes. We may say that the initial bringing down of the Community of Israel, Anointed Community, corresponds with Malkut of Asiyah, then ascending to the world of angels corresponds with Malkut of Yetzirah, and ascending further to the world of archangelic powers and supernal angels corresponds with Malkut of Beriyah; then going beyond there would be the full reaching of Anointed Community ‘above,’ fullness of the Supernal Shekinah, Shekinah of Messiah.

Now there are, indeed, sisters and brothers who receive special anointings from the Spirit of God who are called to spiritual leadership in community; there are Tau and Elders, there are apostles and prophets, or anointed tzaddikim. In a young, immature gathering their role in teaching and initiating, leadership and guardianship, is necessarily more prominent and distinct, for those gathered with them are learning the ways of the Straight Path and in early development of their interior life and communion in the Messiah - the Anointing. Understand, though, that as a gathering, spiritual community, grows and matures in the Way - the Life Divine - spiritual leadership is meant to progressively become less and less prominent and distinct as companions in the assembly deepen their interior life and communion and more and more realize and embody the Messiah and Holy Spirit in their persons and lives. Remember that receiving the Messiah - the Anointing with the Holy Light and Spirit - we are all ordained in a royal priesthood - the Order of Melchizedek; and we are all to be a dwelling place of the Divine Presence, Holy Shekinah, Holy Spirit in Messiah. Thus, as a gathering, a spiritual community, matures and the people come into being in the Messiah there will be many leadings of the Holy Spirit in the gathering through diverse individuals for invocation, prayer, meditation and worship, and the sharing of new teachings and revelations of the Gospel of Truth - the Living Word and Wisdom of God.

The purpose of spiritual leadership in a mystical or gnostic community is like that of a midwife in the process of the Mother Spirit giving birth to the Holy Child - Messiah - in the sisters and brothers of the gathering; as individuals come into being, and more and more are taken up by the Holy Shekinah, Holy Spirit, there are naturally greater and greater manifestations and movements of the Holy Shekinah, Holy Spirit, through the entire gathering. This is the Divine Intention of Anointed Community and the sending of anointed tzaddikim, holy apostles by God Most High - that we might come into being as tzaddik, righteous one.

In a mystical or gnostic community we are all called to pray and pray and pray, and to meditate deep, and to strive with the Holy Spirit to ascend through the various stations of the soul and realize our innate oneness with the Messiah in God Most High, and we are all called to take up the spiritual labor of sacred priesthood, and to walk in the way of holy tzaddikim, or the prophets and apostles of God; whether or not we are called, led, to attend to this role in life outwardly, we are all called to attend to it inwardly and among one another when we gather for sacred discourse, and for prayer, meditation and worship - each of us is called to be a conscious conduit of this Divine Presence and Power, the Shekinah of Messiah.

This is the intention among mystics and gnostics.

A holy and sacred priest is not a priest for her or himself, but in service to the kingdom of heaven and God - in the love of God and for the glorification of God; and loving God the service of a sacred priest is for the sake of all creatures, humanity and the world - all sentient beings. Their spiritual labor is on behalf of all creation, their prayers, meditations and worship is for the sake of the salvation of all, the enlightenment and liberation of all living spirits and souls.

In mystical ascents of the soul as we gather in the Blessed Name in faith and love it is our intention, our hope, to draw other spirits and souls in ascent with us. This is a spiritual labor we attend to all together, unified in mind and heart in the Risen Messiah and the Shekinah of the Messiah, the Holy Spirit.

These are a few thoughts that I am inclined to share today.

May many living spirits and souls receive the Messiah this day and be drawn up in the Great Ascension! Amen.

Yeshua Shalom!

Re: Community of Israel, Anointed Community: Holy Shekinah

Grace and peace to you in Hayyah Yeshua!

There is something more to be said of the ‘descent’ of the Community of Israel, Anointed Community - Shekinah of Messiah.

As has been shared, Anointed Community descends and becomes manifest through two or more gathering in the Blessed Name in faith and love, inward gathered, their hearts and minds unified in Yeshua Messiah, as they engage in sacred discourse, or they invoke, pray, meditate or worship together; hence, when they have a conscious intention for the manifestation of Community of Israel, Anointed Community. Yet, as we know, it may also come to pass that through Divine Grace, or a ‘movement of heaven,’ that Anointed Community may become manifest spontaneously, apart from the formation of a conscious intention to invoke the Holy Shekinah of Messiah; hence, the Holy Spirit can, and does, spontaneously come upon us and take us up without our having done anything to invoke a movement and manifestation of the Spirit of God, the Spirit of the Lord.

At times, through Supernal Grace, this may even transpire with those who appear unworthy, or even wicked when God wills it; but then, generally speaking, when there is an action in Divine Grace there was some prior co-creation of the conditions necessary for a movement and manifestation of the Holy Shekinah, Holy Spirit. Indeed, generally speaking those for whom Divine Grace manifests in this way are people of faith and love who attend to a continuum of devotion daily and who are ingathered, living from within following the leadings of the Holy Spirit in their lives. The ability of faithful and spiritual people to gather in the Blessed Name when they come together, generally speaking, is dependent upon their interior life and their continuum of daily invocation, prayer, meditation and contemplation, and their laboring to live according to their faith and love. It is in this way that souls open themselves to the full action of Divine Grace, the full force of the Holy Shekinah, Holy Spirit, and become conscious conduits of the Messiah - the Holy Light and Spirit of the Supernal One.

Do understand, if and when the Community of Israel, Anointed Community, descends spontaneously, in the power of the moment, we are called to respond and move with the Holy Shekinah, Holy Spirit, as God ordains and God wills, following her leadings fully wherever she might carry us. It would be a great ignorance, and great breach of faith and love to withhold ourselves - truly a dreadful sin. In this regard, understanding that the ways of the Holy Shekinah, Holy Spirit, are surprising and mysterious, we are wise to always ‘be ready for the coming of the Lord’ - Yahweh, Yeshua.

Now, understand that having gathered with another sister or brother, or a number of them, we may initiate an invocation together for the descent of the Community of Israel, Anointed Community, most often when we have the intention of going to a gathering of spiritual community we will invoke at the very outset of our journey, and along the way, and we will be ingathered as we go. Remember, even where there is one bearing the Holy Anointing that the Holy Shekinah, Holy Spirit, abides with that one, indwelling them and surrounding them on all sides. As is known among mystics and gnostics, whenever we go from our home, wherever we might travel, it is wise, and is incumbent upon us, to set the Name of the Lord before us and invoke the good company of the Holy Shekinah, and even more so when we are going to gather in the Blessed Name - even before we arrive at our destination we wish to be ingathered and enter with the Holy Shekinah, Holy Spirit, the ‘angel of the Shekinah going before us.’

The fullness of the Holy Shekinah, Holy Spirit, can indeed be with one individual alone, as we witness with Adonai Yeshua and the Magdalene, and with great tzaddikim, prophets and apostles; but naturally, all in a great mystery, when numerous faithful and spiritual people come together and join together in the Blessed Name in this world, all in Anointed Community, the Holy Shekinah, Holy Spirit, there can be even more radical movements of the kingdom of heaven and Holy Spirit in this world. There is something special, powerful, when two or more gather together in the Blessed Name and agree on matters in the Blessed Name in this world - radical shifts may be brought about in the matrix of spiritual forces within and behind what is transpiring, radical shifts may come about in the play of fate and destiny, Divine Providence coming into play.

The masters of the tradition have taught us that if twelve and one gather in the Blessed Name, in full faith and love, and they are unified completely, joined together as one heart and mind, soul and life in the Messiah, in full kavvanah and devekut - conscious intention and perfect cleaving, and they agree on anything, and intend, envision and speak it together, it will come to pass in that very instant, it will be done for them - even something from nothing, or a materialization ‘out of thin air’ of the most extraordinary sort.

In this perhaps, understanding the very dark and dangerous times we are living in - the outset of the end of days - you may understand how important it is for us to keep the faith and gather in the Blessed Name for the sake of all creatures and the entire world, even if just a very small community amidst the great torrent of dark forces that’s being loosed in these times. Indeed, in the Lord and Holy Shekinah - Anointed Community - even a very small gathering, circle, spiritual community, can make a very big difference, delivering and uplifting many living spirits and souls in the Great Ascension! Hallelu Yah! Praise the Lord!

In closing I will share that even when just two can gather in peace in this way it can make a significant difference for many, let alone when even more can gather together in this peace - this faith and love.

May Anointed Community descend upon many people this day, in many different places, and may many living spirits and souls receive holy sanctuary, refuge, in the Living Body of the Messiah - the Anointing! Amen.

Yeshua Shalom!
