Satan in the Kabbalah

UPDATED March 3, 2020

Satan in the Kabbalah
The Documentary Facts

By Michael Hoffman

Re: The Kabbalistic Zohar

Is the word “Satan” actually used? Can’t find any translation online.  Send me the Hebrew word.

“Israel must make sacrifices to Satan so that he will leave Israel unmolested.” 

Thank you.

Dear E.

The words “Satan” and "demonic powers” are in fact used interchangeably in the Zohar.

For example, in the general context of Zohar 2:33a, which concerns the necessity of Israel making offerings to Satan, it is written:

 “The demonic powers should be given a portion, occupying and assuaging them, so that they will not disturb Israel’s intimacy with God.”
— The Zohar: The Pritzker Edition (Stanford University Press, 2007), vol. 4, p. 140.

Referring to a sacrifice of a goat in the same passage (Zohar 2:33a), it is written, “…this goat is intended to preoccupy Satan, leaving Israel alone with God.”

As in many pagan religions, according to Kabbalistic dogma, the demons must be propitiated with blood sacrifice so that the life of the people of Israel may continue unmolested. 

When there are severe disturbances in superstitious societies such as these, they result in ever more propitiations to Satan, so as to restore peace and tranquility. When Hernando Cortez and the Catholic Conquistadors were closing in on the Aztec capital of Mexico City in 1521, the Aztec priests began frenetically sacrificing ever more victims on their blood-smoking pyramid. 

Orthodox Judaism, from the evidence in the Kabbalah’s Book of Zohar, is not appreciably different from the Aztecs, although we are not suggesting that Orthodox Judaism endorses contemporary human sacrifice, apart from the numerous Israeli wars against the Palestinian and Lebanese people. Zionism however, differs markedly from traditional Kabbalism and Talmudism.

Two additional points 

1. It is an unfortunate fact that the authenticated text of the ancient Zohar insinuates a certain urgency to the sacrifice of goyim that Israel must make to Satan, in that, where no such sacrifice is made, it is believed that Satan will sacrifice rabbis. The Zohar states that this occurred to ten rabbis who were killed in the second century (A.D).

2. The Zohar is the source of the Gnostic, New Age and neo-Nazi belief that Satan and the God of the Bible are the same person. 

In many passages in the Zohar, the conflation of Yahweh and Satan is difficult to miss. 

For instance, the Book of Genesis testifies that the Biblical patriarch Joseph was beloved by God, while the Zohar states that for the crime of kidnapping and selling Joseph, which Joseph’s brothers had committed, it was Satan who sought retribution against Joseph’s enemies (2:33a).

To refute the nonsensical tale circulating among “evangelical Christians" that Orthodox Judaism is not Kabbalistic and that the Kabbalah is actually heretical and not part of Orthodox Judaism, we refer the reader to one of the largest and most politically influential branches of Orthodox Judaism in the United States: Chabad-Lubavitch, which proudly operates “Kabbalah Online.” 

So-called “Christians” who cooperate with the Orthodox rabbinate do so in defiance of II Corinthians 6:14. They are complicit in the diabolism of the Zohar and cognate sacred Kabbalistic texts. 

How could any genuine follower of Jesus Christ countenance such involvement? Yet it is ongoing and massive. Hence, evangelical Churchianity is itself demonic, no less than the popes of the Church of Rome who, as we have documented, submitted to the Kabbalistic gnosis beginning more than five hundred years ago, and have maintained their fealty from then until now.

There is no denying the pivotal role of the Kabbalah and its principal book The Zohar in much of Orthodox Judaism. 

Furthermore, every U.S. Congress since the administration of Ronald Reagan, has officially marked the birthday of the Kabbalist Menachem Mendel Schneerson — Chabad-Lubavitch's last Grand Rabbi— as “Education Day USA,” a Congressional decree which is intended to lay the legal groundwork for officially promulgating in the United States the Seven “Noahide” Laws of the Chabad, and of Orthodox Judaism in general.

As we assured The Saker in his interview with this writer, the Noahide Laws require the execution of anyone who engages in Avodah zara, i.e. “idol worship.” Orthodox Judaism declares Jesus Christ an idol, and Christians as idol worshippers. The Right-wing Church-goers who follow Pence, Pompeo and Ben Shapiro cooperate in the suicide of Christianity. They worship their would-be executioners. This is diabolic disorientation.

These facts are denied by people who haven’t done the research and prefer to parrot the myths with which their heads are stuffed. The revisionist historian has a different vocation.

You would think Catholics would recognize the antichrists of today. But the further from 33 A.D. we get, the closer to the fulfillment of the July 13, 1917 prophecy of Our Lady of the Rosary we get. She said: "various nations will be annihilated."

Dear Mr. Hoffman;

I read your interview with The Saker and though I found the information you imparted there enlightening, a question that arose in my mind and which I wish to ask you is; at what point in their history did the Jews cease to worship God in the manner that their ancestors did during the 1st Temple period? Or put another way; when did Judaism become "Pharisaism"? Am I correct in assuming that this transformation may have had its beginnings during the Babylonian captivity? Thank you in advance for your consideration of my question.

A - The Jews do not regard the First Temple period as the times of 'normative' Judaism. The Judaism of that time was semi-pagan. The "biblical Judaism" was created after the return of Jews from Babylon.
B - During the Second Temple period the Judaism was not a religiously unified system of faith. It had no encompassing common doctrine. There was no Jewish Vatican, there was no catechism of Judaism.
Within the Judaism there were several strains or currents of 'kin' thought. Pharisaism was one of those. It is incorrect to read history backward, as it has been done almost universally, for centuries, and imagine the biblical Israelites to be the Jews of our age transported to the time of Christ.
Within the wide community of "Israelites" there were substantial differences of interpretation of religious texts, there were schools of Judaism given to heterodox interpretations. We know well enough about three of them : Pharisaism, Sadduceeism and Essenism. And then Christ arrived on the scene and vehemently condemned practically whole of Judaism.
C - The beginning of modern Judaism originated after the catastrophe which was the destruction of the Second Temple [catastrophe for the Temple Jews only, because the Jewish-Christian community already existed then].
Without the Temple, the priesthood and the sacrifices there could not have been "Judaism". We can say that it was the Judaism itself, and not the Temple Judaism, which came to the end.
At the sessions of the Council of Yavneh [Yamnia], after AD 70, the surviving rabbis slowly re-created Judaism, Judaism without the prerequisites enacted/set up by Moses. But, without those there was no "Judaism".
It was the Pharisaic rabbis, the greatest faction at the council, which reworked the old into the new. They made the oral [Babylonian Talmudic] law a part of the canon of Judaism, they accepted into the Judaism speculative pagan religious thought, esoteric South Asian doctrines [the idea of reincarnation, the concept of karma], Chaldean [Babylonian] magic, Greek philosophical ideas. Moses would have the rabbis of the council killed.
The Judaism came to the end when the Romans destroyed the Second Temple.
God gave the 'Israelites' wandering in the semi-desert '40 years', a generation, to accept the new religious reality and then gave the Judeans/Israelites '40 years' to accept Christ. Then, through the Romans, He destroyed the Temple of Jerusalem.

Hi Michael. Excellent and informative article as always. Below is one that I wrote I think you might be interested in. It covers 'Israel's' history of treachery against the West. Keep up the exceptional work.

Victor Porlier I have found Mr. Hoffman to be a terrific resource. Recently I did post this article on my FB page one friend came back and said the question of the actual Hebrew word translated as Satan in Zohar 2:33a is left unanswered.

He writes - "What translation of the Zohar does this image cite?

I can't find anything close to it in the Daniel C. Matt translation. I put some of the original Hebrew text into Google translate and the following should be translated "scapegoat", which has a much more specific meaning than "sacrifice of a goat":
בְּשָׂעִיר רּקָרֵבִין

Any help appreciated
