"Qabalah is a Hebrew word that means 'tradition.' It is derived
from the root word qibel, meaning 'to recieve' or 'that
which is recieved.' This refers to the handing down of estoric
knowledge by oral transmission."
(Cicero, Sandra and Chic,
The Essential Golden Dawn
, page 167)
THE SEPHIROTIC TREE OF THE KABBALAH:
"From Mackey's Encyclopedia of Freemasonry, Vol. 1, pp. 166-168,
we read: Cabala, Cabbalah, Kabalah, Kabbalah -- 'The mystical
philosophy or theosophy of the Jews...[written, not in Hebrew,
but in Persian symbols of hidden meaning while the Jews were in
Babylonian (modern Iraq) and Persian (modern Iran) captivity].
The cabala is divided into two kinds: the Practical and the
Theoretical. The Practical Cabala is occupied in instructions
for the construction of talismans and amulets [witchcraft]...Buxtorf
(Lexicon and Talmud) defines the Cabala to be a secret science,
which treats in a mystical and enigmatical manner of things
divine, angelical, theological, celestial, and metaphysical;
the subjects being enveloped in striking symbols and secret
modes of teaching. Much use is made of it in the advanced
degrees (of Freemasonry), and entire Rites [Scottish] have been
constructed on its principles."
(Quoted from "Scarlet and the Beast" by John Daniel, Vol. I, page 195)
Kabbalist Z'ev ben Shimon Halevi, in writing about the so called
"Tree of Life", claims: "The actual origin of the Tree of Life
is Unknown. It traditionally is rooted in the Cabala, the inner
teaching of Judaism." (Introduction to the Cabala, Halevi)
The Kabbalah is also the inner teaching of corporate Freemasonry,
as attested by many of the most notorious Freemasonic
mystagogues. Thus the term "Judeo-Masonry" refers to this
fact. According to 33rd Degree Freemason, Manly P. Hall, the
Scriptures, or written Torah, is the Law, while the
Talmud is called the "soul of the Law", and Qabalah is considered
to be the "soul of the soul of the Law." In short, Qabalah is
considered to be the core or inner working of Judaism--the final
word, so to speak.
The racist nature of the Jewish Kabbalah is illustrated in
the chart above(01), where the lowest realm of emminations on the
Sephirotic tree are demonic shells, or non-Jews, called in the
Qabalah "kilphoth". However, since corporate Freemasonry is essencially
Judaism for Gentiles, the Talmudic distrust and contempt of the "goy", i.e.,
gentiles, is supplanted in Masonry with a distrust and contempt for 'cowan',
i.e., the Masonic term used to describe profane outsiders, or non-Masons who
have the audacity to learn about Masonry or intrude into its mysteries.
In the most powerful Masonic order, the Scottish Rite, which is
sometimes called "the Jewish rite", cowan are
sometimes called "gentiles".
As Saint Athanatius pointed out, the Bible is the true tree of life.
The Kabbalah, in contrast, despite what it calls the Sephirot, is in
fact the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, and so its fruits
are forbidden in the Bible. The Kabbalists
teach that both good and evil are needful and both are qualities
of God. The hexagram sybolizes this occult dualism. Thus the
tree of the knowledge of good and evil is the Kabbalist cannibal
wisdom which teaches that evil is needful, necessary, meaningful,
purposeful, good, etc., thereby suggesting, as did the serpent in
the Garden of Eden, that evil is good fruit.
In contrast, the traditional Catholic view is that evil is evil,
good is good, and never the twain shall meet, since good and evil
are mutually incompatible, irreconcialiable opposites, one of which,
evil, will be utterly extirpated and anihilated in the eschaton.
So, from the Christian perspective, there is no reason to eat from
the Sephirotic tree of the knowledge of good and evil, since
the question is not how to balence good and evil but rather how to
overcome evil with good.
In short, what Kabbalists call "the tree of life" is the tree of
death, since it's written: "the wages of sin are death". The serpent
asked, "Yea, hath God said?" Yes, God said, and His Word, as it
was cannonized by the Catholic Church, remains the
final word, not the oral tradition of the Qabbalists, nor the gospels
of the gnostics.
7:5. And the Pharisees and scribes asked him:
Why do not thy disciples walk according to the
tradition of the ancients, but they eat bread
with common hands?
7:6. But he answering, said to them: Well did
Isaias prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is
written: This people honoureth me with their
lips, but their heart is far from me.
7:7. And in vain do they worship me, teaching
doctrines and precepts of men.
Doctrines and precepts of men. . .See the
annotations, Matt. 15. 9, 11. 7:8. For leaving
the commandment of God, you hold the tradition
of men, the washing of pots and of cups: and
many other things you do like to these.
7:9. And he said to them: Well do you make void
the commandment of God, that you may keep your
7:10. For Moses said: Honour thy father and thy
mother. And He that shall curse father or
mother, dying let him die.
7:11. But you say: If a man shall say to his
father or mother, Corban (which is a gift)
whatsoever is from me shall profit thee.
7:12. And further you suffer him not to do any
thing for his father or mother,
7:13. Making void the word of God by your own
tradition, which you have given forth. And many
other such like things you do.

"In Rabbi Adi Steinsaltz's study of the Tanya of
Shneur Zalman, the founder of the Chabad-Lubavitch
branch of Hasidic Judaism, we read that '...the
second soul of the Jew is a part of God above, literally,'
while 'The souls of the nations of the world, however,
derive from the other impure kelipot (demonic
'shells'), which contain no good whatever, as it is
written in Etz Chayyim, Portal 49, ch. 3...'"
