Joseph Smith and Kabbalah
Freemasonry, Judaism, Mormonism and Kabbalah are demonic sex cults!
by David J. Stewart
While doing research on the cult of Mormonism, I came across several articles on the internet authored by Lance S. Owens. At first it appeared that Mr. Owens was against the Mormon cult, with such article titles as Joseph Smith and Kabbalah: The Occult Connection. Then I read the following quote on his website...
This work was originally published in Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought, Vol. 27, No. 3, Fall 1994, pp. 117-194. The paper received considerable notice, and in 1995 the Mormon History Association recognized Joseph Smith and Kabbalah: The Occult Connection with its annual award for the best article in Mormon studies. There is an ongoing demand for this paper but unfortunately Dialogue sold out its entire printing of the Fall, 1994 issue within a few weeks. Most academic libraries will have Dialogue in their collection of journals for those seeking a print copy.
Lance S. Owens is NOT a Christian and his writings openly reveal that Mormonism is connected with the occult. Oddly enough, the Mormons readily admit their occult roots. Joseph Smith was a heretic! Unbeknownst to many people, Joseph Smith (the founder of Mormonism in 1830) was a 33rd degree Freemason, as was Charles Taze Russell (the founder of the Jehovah Witnesses in 1874). Those who understand the Satanic roots of cults such as Freemasonry and Rosicrucianism know that Kabbalah is greatly revered in such groups.
Matthew 27:25, “Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.”
Kabbalah is a Jewish system of black magic which originates in ancient pagan Babylon. Freemasonry is a Jewish sex cult. The primary Masonic symbol, the square and compass (which is a representation of the Jewish Star of David) is seen throughout Masonic temples and lodges. Albert Pike, a 33rd degree mason of the Scottish-rite wrote MORALS AND DOGMA. This book was given to every MASTER MASON (33rd degree). In his book, Pike said that the 33 degrees of Freemasonry is based in the Jewish Kabbalah, the source of everything that happens in the Masonic lodge. I wonder how many Christians in the Southern Baptist Convention are aware that they are members of a sex-cult?
Kabbalah is based largely upon the Zohar, and is esoteric (which simply means that you can't understand it by reading it, someone has to explain it to you). I sincerely don't think the Zohar was intended to be understood. I think it's interpretation is solely at the whim of any occultist who wants to manipulate dumb people. I've tried to read it and it's just a bunch of mumbo-jumbo that you could literally interpret to mean anything. I am confident that it was simply meant to impress and not really have any legitimate meaning at all.
The Roman Catholic Vatican, to thwart true Christians from exposing their heretical beliefs, changed all their online doctrines into Latin at the Vatican's official website. It looks impressive to the world, but no one knows what they believe. Who reads Latin these days? What a sad joke! Catholicism is a massive religious fraud intended to deceive the masses of this world. Roman Catholicism has been extremely effective for the cause of Satan, boasting of over 1,000,000,000 members worldwide. The Jehovah's Witnesses cult only has an estimated 6,000,000 members. Walter Martin authored a book, KINGDOM OF THE CULTS
In contrast, the Word of God has a definite meaning which cannot be twisted if you take the Bible at face value. Sadly, Kabbalism has many devout followers such as Madonna (who recently built a $5,000,000 Kabbalah reading room in London) and Britney Spears (who plans to write a Kabbalah book for children). The Zohar is straight from Hell, as are the false religions of Kabbalism and Mormonism that are largely derived from it.
"What is Kabbalah and who believes in it?
Kabbalah is a branch of Jewish mysticism, which is thought to have originated in the 13th century. Its teachings come from an ancient 23-volume book called the Zohar, which offers interpretations of the inner meaning of the Torah. Traditionally, its practices were reserved for a select number of Jewish scholars who already had an advanced understanding of Jewish law, but for the past 500 years it has been followed more widely.
In 1969, a former insurance salesman, Rabbi Philip Berg, established the Kabbalah Centre International and appointed himself its leader. The centre markets Kabbalah as a "universal system for self-improvement" and attracts more than 3.5 million followers. Berg claims that Kabbalah answers the ultimate questions of human existence: who we are, where we come from and why we're here. Its followers claim that it can purify the soul and banish disease, depression and discontent using the spiritual light of the Zohar.
The Kabbalah Centre sells copies of its sacred texts and other "spiritual tools", such as Kabbalah Water. Among the best-selling items is the red string bracelet, said to protect the wearer from the evil eye. The Beckhams, Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, Demi Moore and Madonna have all been seen sporting one." -SOURCE: The Great Kabbalah Con Exposed.
Kabbalah means "tradition" or "transmitted teaching." It is a mix of Jewish mysticism, the occult, Gnosticism, Neoplatonism, and uses numerology to "interpret" the Bible. Even though it claims to have been handed down orally from Abraham, the system appears to have been given its earliest formulation in the 11th century in France. It is sad in these last days to see people turning to every kind of lie imaginable, when they are seriously searching for the truth and answers to what this life is all about.
Ever since the Tower of Babel, men have created false gods and religions out of their imagination, rejecting the One and only True God and His Truth. Kabbalah is one of the hottest cults today because of celebrities like Madonna, Britney Spears, Demi Moore, and Paris Hilton who have popularized it. Revenues are obtained primarily through the sale of books, tapes, the famous "red string" bracelet that is supposed to protect the wearer from the "evil eye," and Kabbalah water.
Like ALL cults, Kabbalists make it sound like something everyone should be involved in it. They also falsely claim that you can be a Christian and be involved in Kabbalah. Biblically, Kabbalah is a lie from the pits of hell, it has NOTHING to do whatsoever with the Christian faith! ALL cults base their final authority upon something other than God's Word. The Mormon cult uses the Book of Mormon. The Jehovah Witnesses cult uses the writings of the Watchtower Society. The Christian Science cult uses the writings of Mary Baker Eddy. The Seventh-Day Adventists cult uses the writings of Ellen G. White. The Scientology cult uses the writings of L. Ron Hubbard. And the Kabbalah cult uses the Zohar.
Mormonism is of the Devil
Let's recognize Mormonism for what it is...A CULT! The lie of Mormonism is not a new problem. Paul himself had
to deal with the issue of "cults," those who perverted the Gospel. Paul spoke of this often in his writings, "...but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ" -Galatians 1:7. Cults are nothing new. The bottom line in Mormonism is a denial of the deity of Jesus Christ. In Revelation 1:8, Jesus Christ proclaims that He is Almighty God! Nearly every cult denies the deity of Christ or somehow diminishes it. Many Mormons will lie to you and say that they believe in the Jesus of the Bible, but they are not telling you the truth. In Mormon theology, their jesus is NOT a deity! THE JESUS OF THE BIBLE IS ALMIGHTY GOD!
Although Mormons use the Bible, it is NOT their final authority as it is for the Christian. Their authority
lies in the writings of the lunatic Joseph Smith and their cult's Doctrine and Covenants statement. Only faith in Jesus Christ, the Jesus of the Bible will get you into Heaven. The Mormon cult spends tens of millions each year in public relations to portray themselves as "just another Christian church." DO NOT LET THEIR ADS FOOL YOU. They are no more a Christian church than your local mosque is!
WARNING: Do NOT be taken in by the warm and fuzzy exterior of this cult, Mormons are NOT Christians. And when they say the name Jesus, it is NOT the Jesus of the Bible! Jesus said, "Ye must be born again!" -John 3:3.
The Word of God is Upfront and Honest
Thankfully, the Word of God (the Bible) is open to all. There is no private interpretations of the Bible, "Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation" -2nd Peter 1:20. God has written the Bible to all mankind. Anyone can understand the Word of God if they will come to Jesus Christ and receive God's gift of eternal life (John 1:12). Oh how Satan blinds the masses with deception. ANYTHING that is of the occult is Satanic. This includes all New Age teachings, yoga, astrology, Tarot reading, palm readings, psychics, Yin Yang, spiritualism, astral projection, hypnotism, good luck charms, etc. Mormonism is saturated with occult imagery and doctrines. Joseph Smith was an occult Freemason. Do not be deceived friend, Satan is the common denominator behind all false religions, all designed to blind the masses. Satan is the god of this world (2nd Corinthians 4:4) and he works through occult organizations and false religions. It is no surprise that the founder of the Mormon false religion was an occult member of Freemasonry.
By the way, there is NO such thing as separation of church and state. To remove God from anything is an open invitation to Satan. Until we bring God back, Satan will continue to reign over America. Satan has infiltrated our schools, our churches, our government, and even our Bibles. The only defense is the Word of God, which I believe is the 1611 King James Bible. As I mentioned at the beginning of this article, Lance S. Owens is NOT a Christian and his writings clearly prove that Mormonism is connected with the occult. Any connection with the occult is of the Devil.
"Kabbalism is a system of Jewish mysticism and magic and is the foundational element in modern witchcraft. Virtually all of the great witches and sorcerers of this century were Kabbalists." -William J. Schnoebelen, The Dark Side of Freemasonry
