JACOB BECOMES ISRAEL
It’s time to end and put to rest the term “Jewish”. There is no such thing as a Jewish religion. No such thing as a Jew in the context of religion. It does not exist. There is much social and religious conditioning (a.k.a. brainwashing) that has to be undone because it’s very difficult for most of us to accept, embrace and, most important, comprehend that the word has zero meaning in the context of Moses, the Torah, the Zohar, and the arrival of the Messiah.
The word Judaism also does not exist in the Torah or within the thoughts and revelations of the ancient Kabbalists.
The word Jewish as a religion does not appear in the Torah. The Hebrew word Jew or Judah (Yehudi) refers to a tribe, not a religion.
The tribe of Benjamin does not refer to religion. The tribe of Dan is not the name of a religion. And the tribe of Judah (Yehudi) is not the name of a religion.
NO SUCH THING AS JEWISH
The true name of the people who Moses led out of Egypt and who are supposed to embrace the pathways and teachings of the Torah generation after generation is “Israelite” or the “Children of Israel.” Which leads to a question: If there is no such thing as Jewish, then what about all those Jewish organizations out in there world? Well, for starters, most have been founded and are run by self-appointed people who, on their own accord, decided to become spokespersons even though no one asked them to. Now, if you believe in the nonsense that you are Jewish, then you already fell into a trap and now you think that these people, right or wrong, are speaking on your behalf when you read about them in the news. Whether they have a right to talk for you is a separate matter for the moment. Make no mistake, they have zero right to speak for anyone, except those people who allow them to speak. But the fact is, there is no Biblical group known as a Jewish people.
And the Torah and the Kabbalists tell us that no one, but no one, knows who is a true Israelite except for the Messiah and Elijah the Prophet. Fact is, there are tens of millions of Christians all over the world who are true Israelites, whose families over the centuries assimilated and converted to Christianity and they lost their connection to their genetic and spiritual roots. Now get ready for this one — there are many people in the world, according to the Torah, who are not true Israelites, even though they call themselves Jewish. They are actually descendants from the ancient group of people who the Torah calls “the mixed multitude” or “Erev Rav” in Hebrew.
WHO ARE THE MIX MULTITUDE?
The Zohar says these groups of “Jews” or Mix Multitude are the ones who “Build Yeshivas (religious schools) and synagogues and they put a crown on top of the Torah but they do it for their own honor, praise and profit.” According to the Zohar, they are the cause of all chaos, destruction and hatred in the world.
These are strong words. These are difficult truths. And if you are offended by them, please do not complain to me. I am just repeating the teachings of Zohar and the Kabbalists and trust me, I am holding back a lot of other frightening comments from the Kabbalists of history, and the Zohar.
What then is an Israelite?
Who is an Israelite?
The Torah and the Zohar portion of Vayishlach tell us that Jacob the Patriarch battled the negative angel of his brother Esav. Jacob battled all night long and finally defeated the angel. The Zohar says this angel was none other than the dark force the Torah calls “The Satan”, which means literally, “The Adversary”.
After Jacob defeats the angel, the Torah suddenly changes Jacob’s name.
Israel is the name of Jacob AFTER he conquers the angel of his brother Esav.
Well, the Zohar also tells us there is no devil and no horned creature who creates evil in the world. “The Adversary” is our own ego, the dark counter-intelligence that battles us each and every day. How? For instance, we want to be happy, but this force conjures up worry, sadness and fear within us. Where do you think our fears and anxieties and anger come from?
Why, if there is a problem in life, do we immediately begin worrying instead of feeling invincible? Who programmed us that way? Why is doubt, pessimism and worry the so-called natural response to a difficult obstacle? Why is fear and stress the innate human reaction to real problems?
Only one reason—the Satan.
Here’s another example: We want to be optimistic about our life, but this counter-intelligence and adversary arouses feelings pessimism and uncertainty and downright depression. Why is it so easy to feel depression and anxiety and so darn difficult to feel naturally happy and ecstatic and full of bliss and optimism? How about those moments when we decide that we want to start eating right and begin living healthier lives? Only a few hours later this force whispers into our head, “start the diet next week, eat the chocolate cake and the double burger right now.”
This counter-intelligence that ruins our lives and undermines all of our good intentions, is the ego or the force called The Adversary.
The Zohar says that Jacob’s fight was actually against the Satan himself, the root of all human ego. You see, the story is about us. We are Jacob. And the angel or Satan is our own stupid ego that sabotages our life.
Now here’s a big secret:
THE LONG LOST SECRET BEHIND THE WORD “ISRAELITE”
We just discovered that Jacob’s name was changed to Israel AFTER he beat the living daylights out of the angel Satan. Follow this closely: The name Jacob in Hebrew (Yaakov ) has a numerical value of 182. The Hebrew word “Satan” has a numerical value of 359. By defeating Satan, Jacob literally conquers the Adversary and recaptures all of the Light that was lost to him. Therefore, Jacob adds Satan’s numeric value to his own name.
Now he acquires a new name: Israel.
Guess what? The numerical value of Israel is—541!
Jacob (182) and Satan (359) = 541, the exact same value as the word “Israel”.
This is an amazing secret and profound understanding. This is why the Twelve Tribes that descended from Jacob are called, The Twelve Tribes of Jacob and/or the Twelve Tribes of Israel. Israel IS Jacob. And Jacob won the name Israel by winning the fight over the Satan, the ego, the inborn self-interest and darkness inside all of us, especially those who descend from Jacob. They are known as the Hebrew tribes. They are not known as Jewish people.
And when these Hebrew tribes and all of their descendants use the Torah to transform and defeat their own darkness and ego, they too win the name of Israelite, just as the father and patriarch of the twelve tribes Jacob did.
An Israelite is anyone who defeats the Satan, conquers the ego, recapturing all the blessings and Light that were handed over to the dark side by using the path of Torah. This is why an Israelite never, but never, points the finger of blame at anyone else. There is no outside enemy. Any enemy that despises a so-called “Jewish person”, is simply a direct reflection and a mirror image of the internal ego and Satan of the individual person—you and I. Period.
When we defeat our inner Satan and ego and all of the self-interest and victimhood that goes along with it—just as when Jacob defeated the negative angel earning the name Israel—we too becomes an Israelite in both body and soul. And then the external enemies will transform and love the Israelites and cherish the Israelites and there will be peace on earth.
That’s how the game of life works.
We are not here to be Jews and live inside some Jewish religion. We are here to become Israelites by following the Torah and living its teachings. The path of the Torah and the technology and Light of Zohar are the ONLY tools on earth that have the power to transform people into Israelites. There is no other way to reign in the ugly, pathetic ego of man.
Whoever decides to live the teachings and walk the path of the Torah, this person is on the path to becoming an Israelite.
But the force called Satan created the idea of religion and the concept of “Jewish” and it confuses the hell out of us. It’s probably confusing and bothering a lot people right now reading this blog. That’s because we have been brainwashed for 2000 years.
Over these last twenty centuries, the Kabbalists attempted to bring this provocative truth and wisdom to the people. Every time they tried, the Mixed Multitude unleashed a torrent of hatred and opposition against them. Though the numbers of the Mixed Multitude were few, their voices were loud; their positions in society, extremely influential. The Zohar says that the Mix Multitude are in the religious schools, the religious establishment, the government, the religious courts of law, the halls of justice, the synagogues, and they control all the power and wealth.
Please remember, these are the words of Rav Shimon Bar Yohai, not me! These words are in the Zohar.
However, please understand that we cannot point the finger at anyone, not even at the Mix Multitude, if we want to become a true student of Torah, Kabbalah and transform into an Israelite.
The way we weaken the power of negative people in the world is by weakening our own ego and learning to love unconditionally—even loving our enemies. I have to get rid of my own ugly, disgusting ego in order to prevent Light and power from reaching negative people who only seek to hurt others. They are not the problem. I am the problem. We are all the problem.
We need to starve negative people of power by diminishing our own self-interest, taking responsibility, losing the ego, and becoming a true Israelite.
This truth is why Jesus, Rabbi Akiva, Rabbi Ishmael, Rabbi Gamalial, and other great Kabbalists were slaughtered like lambs. They wanted to bring the power of Kabbalah to the world.
But it wasn’t time. Why not?
Because the regular people—like you and I—refused to become accountable and make the inner change necessary to eradicate self-interest, narcissism and egocentricity. Thus, this failure to change is what empowered the corrupt religious establishment to this very day.
We can change all that now. Once and for all. We can share the Zohar, diminish our ego, give up the selfishness, strive to be kinder and lose the victim mentality.
This week’s Torah portion of Vayishlach and the Zohar give us this power.
None of us have to be perfect. But if enough of us reduce the ego and take the pain a little bit, we can tip the scales and the true Israelites, the people of the Zohar, will bring tremendous Light to all the nations, as the Torah commands us to do, and we will witness and experience the End of Death and Pain and Suffering in our life time.
So the first act that we can perform that is guaranteed to hurt our ego is this: Lose the word Jewish for good, and start looking at people’s souls and our common spark of humanity, instead of their religion.
Start replacing the word Jew with Israelite and lets replace the word Judaism with “the path of Torah.”
The way we unite forever Christians, Muslims and Israelites is for us to lose the ego by losing the word Jewish and by winning the name Israelite by recapturing the Light lost to Satan.
We do that by getting rid of our own anger, self-interest, our egocentric opinions about others, especially those of other faiths, and by letting go of any discomfort we have about this article.
When we do this, we unleash a gigantic wave of Light that fills the souls of all mankind, which in turn, banishes the darkness and hatred that other people have for the Children of Israel.
What an amazing formula for peace!
