Gershom Scholem, author of "Major Trends In Jewish Mysticism", is widely regarded, as founder of academic study of Kabbalah. John Kunkle offers brief summary of Kabbalah in review of Scholem's book "Kabbalah Embraces Evil, Equates Jews With God," with synopsis below:
"The final development of Jewish mysticism was the Kabbalah. Kabbalism states that creation does not just emanate from God, but that man is God's collaborator through a process called 'Restoration.' Man has the ability to accelerate or retard the process of creation. The Messiah would not come until restoration was complete. Jews were deliberately exiled to all parts of the world to pick up the 'sparks of souls and divine light' (pg. 311) and were crucial to this 'healing' process. Adam's fall from grace did not just bring down mankind. It also brought down God and the 'Shekinah.' The Shekinah is 'the essence of God' that hovered above the Ark of the Covenant in the Temple in the Holy of Holies. It was what lead the Jews throughout their Exodus from Egypt. 'Everything is in Exile. The Shekinah...was dragged down into the world of darkness of demonic evil." (pg. 280) Through transmigration of the soul, the goal of the Jew was to lift their experience and bring both mankind and the Shekinah out of exile. This transmigration can take a long time, but it can be 'shortened by certain religious acts, i.e. rites, penitential exercises, and meditations.' (pg. 283)"
Kunkle using Scholem's book as reference sees origins of Illuminati in the Sabbateans. The article continues below.
"In the Middle East, the appearance of Sabbatai Zevi...transformed Kabbalism. Sabbatai declared himself the Messiah...he was a manic depressive who oscillated between gloom and ecstasy, during which time he committed many satanic and depraved sexual acts which were against Jewish ecclesiastic law."
"'Sabbateanism took the form of...an organized sect whose adherents met in secret conclave [and hid] their ideas and activities from the outside world in order to avoid persecution.' (pg. 302):"
"The sect spread to the Ashkenazi Jews in Europe. They believed that 'when good and evil are finally separated, the Messiah will come.' (pg. 305) They believed that 'the attraction of saintliness was not always sufficient to release the sparks from their prisons.'"
"'In order to force open the prison doors from within, the Messiah himself must descend into the realm of evil.' In other words they believed in 'salvation through sin.' Mankind must give itself over to depravity before the Messiah would return. (pg. 311) 'The Sabbatean movement [was] regarded as nothing but an unholy rebellion against rabbinical Judaism, with an open tendency towards transgressions and sins in theory and practice.' (pg. 313)"
Does a doctrine of "salvation through sin" represent a theme of maturation or only a cop-out for unrestrained behavior? Kunkle informs: "Meyer Amshel Bauer, who later changed his name to Rothschild, was a Sabbatean Jew. He and his fellow Sabbatean Jews, hidden among the rabbinical Jews, formed what would become the Illuminati."
Kunkle concludes article with Illuminati point of view: "These people believe that they are beyond the definitions of good and evil and, because of their secret knowledge, they are the rightful inheritors of all the world's wealth.
They are the people behind Zionism and the ones who sacrificed rabbinical Jews to the horrors of the Holocaust -- Holocaust meaning 'burnt offering' -- in order to achieve a Zionist state. With the Sabbateans, this 'burnt offering' was for their true God -- Satan."
It's something to keep in mind, the notion of "burnt offerings" as preferred means of sacrifice to their God! Was that what Hiroshima and Nagasaki were in the end - burnt offerings? Was 9/11 a "burnt offering?" What will be the next public "burnt offering?"
