He said furthermore unto me, Son of man, seest thou what they do? even the great abominations that the house of Israel committeth here...?
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.
In the decades of the 70s, 80s, and 90s, the hottest spiritual trend was the New Age movement. As we move forward through the first decade of the 21st century, the latest cure-all spiritual phenomenon bought by the gullible masses seems to be the Jewish Cabala (or Kabbalah). The newfound popularity of this end-time sorcery is not by accident. Its emergence is a carefully planned Illuminati event.
The Cabala is not new. It’s been around for centuries. The Cabala is actually ancient magic. It is an exotic blend of devilish, sometimes fanciful, New Age mystical practices topped by a philosophical bent of Jewish supremacism. Orthodox Judaism, or phariseeism, is rife with cabalism, and Jewish rabbis are the Cabala’s greatest promoters.
Celebrities and Cabala
The explosion in mainstream interest in cabalism is boosted by many big-name celebrities who have recently been hawking cabalism as the miraculous answer to all of man’s problems. An undercover BBC reporter who infiltrated a London Cabala group witnessed singer Madonna and Guy Ritchie chanting mystic spells in a vain attempt to "cleanse" Chernobyl, the site in Ukraine of a nuclear plant disaster in 1986. Other news accounts link entertainers Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, Roseanne Barr, Demi Moore, Shirley MacLaine, Ashton Kutcher, Sandra Bernhard, Barbra Streisand, Dianne Keaton, Gwyneth Paltrow, Goldie Hawn, Elizabeth Taylor, Michael Jackson, Mick Jagger, Diane Ladd, Laura Dern and a legion of other "stars" with practice of Cabala.
Look closely when you see any of these people on TV or pictured in magazines and you’ll often see the characteristic red string wristband they wear. Lately, former President Bill Clinton’s been spotted wearing it—he’s a cabalist—and so has Florida politician Katherine Harris, who became a famous household icon as Florida’s Republican Secretary of State during the bizarre 2000 election snafu. Republican big-wig and former House Speaker, Newt Gingrich, is reported to be a Cabala advocate, and some say conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh and his rabbi are also into the Cabala.
Among the most notorious of cabalists are the TV comedy stars of the once #1-rated "The Jerry Seinfeld Show." The producer of the Seinfeld show was Larry David, a Jew, all four of the cast were Jews, and cabalistic hand signs, occult language, and magic rituals were covertly planted in many episodes.
Jason Alexander, who played the loveable loser "George Costanza" on the show, posed for TV Guide magazine in a blatantly cabalistic body pose. Plus, his left and right hands gave the "El Diablo" horned devil sign in an "As Above, So Below" gesture, signifying the occultic Secret Doctrine.
Michael Richards, who portrayed the klutzy "Kramer" in Seinfeld, also seems to relish giving cabalistic and Masonic hand signs and gestures. Richards was pictured on the front cover of the Scottish Rite Journal. Inside the publication, he told of how pleased he is to be a Freemason.Star Trek’s Leonard Nimoy ("Mr. Spock") is constantly sighted in cabalistic poses. His famous Vulcan hand sign on the TV series was actually the Hebrew letter, Shin. Its display is part and parcel of Jewish religion. So, every time viewers observed Mr. Spock (Nimoy) giving the sign, they were unknowingly being made a participant in a cabalistic occult ritual.
Mr. Spock, a Star Trek character played by actor Leonard Nimoy, became famous for giving the Vulcan greeting with his right hand. Nimoy, a Jew, says that the sign is the same gesture given in Jewish synagogues when the rabbi and elders bring out the Holy of Holies. It is based on the Hebrew letter "shin." In essence, on the popular TV show, every time Spock gave the "shin" Vulcan greeting hand sign, he was invoking cabalistic magic.
Sodom, Egypt, and 21st Century Judaism
In one of the most controversial of all the many video documentaries I have produced, Cauldron of Abbadon (VHS or DVD), I stated, "From Jerusalem and Israel flow a torrent of satanic evil and mischief, endangering the whole world." Zionist Jews and their cohorts in the Christian Zionist community were angered over what I said, but they had no response to the mountain of facts presented in the video proving my point.
It is undeniable that God Himself, in Revelation 11:8, declares that in the last days just prior to Christ’s return, one of the most wicked places on earth will be Jerusalem and Israel. In the book of Revelation God calls Jerusalem "Sodom and Egypt."
The question is, why? Why is Jerusalem, the capital of the Jewish nation of Israel, spiritually "Sodom and Egypt?" I believe it is because of the apostate Jewish religion, a religion diametrically opposed to the Old Testament faith of Moses, Isaac, Jacob, and the prophets.
From the days of the Jews’ captivity in Babylon to today, the religion of the Jews has increasingly grown more dark and more wicked. Jesus openly castigated the Jewish religionists. He called them "blind guides," "fools, hypocrites." He said, "Ye devour widows’ houses, and for a pretense make long prayer...Ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves." (Matthew 23:14-15)
Children of hell, that’s what Jesus called the Jewish religious teachers. That was almost 2,000 years ago. Well, guess what? The Jewish religionists are even worse now, in the 21st century. They’ve had almost 2,000 years more to practice and perfect their evil religion. Today, those who practice satanic cabalism and believe in the Talmud are the children of hell a hundred times over.
In my latest exposé book, Codex Magica, I report on some of the almost unbelievably wicked Talmudic and Cabalistic practices of the Jews. It is important to understand that the horrific nature of the Jews’ religion lie in its man-made traditions. In reality, these traditions are satanic in origin. I refer especially to the Jewish Talmud, the legalistic law traditions of the rabbis, and to the Jewish Cabala (also Kabbalah or Quaballah), which are the mystical teachings and traditions of the rabbis and sages.
The philosophy and doctrines of the Jewish Cabala are the wellspring of virtually every wicked, occult sect, satanic secret society, and witchcraft cult that has arisen in the past one thousand years! The Cabala brings together in one neat package the core of all the Mystery teachings of the ancients. Indeed, the Holy Bible gives evidence that the Jewish elders had brought the Mysteries into the Temple and had conducted secret ceremonies in hidden chambers as far back as the days of the prophet Ezekiel (see Ezekiel 8). God called these teachings and rituals "abominations."
The Masonic Lodge, The Illuminati and The Cabala
Freemasonry has long praised the Cabala, and its top officials have admitted that the Lodge’s rituals and teachings are but the offspring of the Jewish tradition. Albert Pike, former Sovereign Grand Commander of the Scottish Rite, wrote: "One is filled with admiration, on penetrating into the Sanctuary of the Cabala."
In 1855, the renowned Rabbi Isaac Wise wrote: "Freemasonry is a Jewish establishment, whose history, grades, official appointments, passwords, and explanations are Jewish from beginning to end."
The Jewish Tribune newspaper, in 1927, in an editorial, stated: "Freemasonry is based on Judaism. Eliminate the teachings of Judaism from the Masonic ritual and what is left?"In Richardson’s Monitor of Freemasonry (p. 64), this symbol is used to illustrate the Royal Arch Degree. Masonic literature is replete with examples of the Jewish Star of David and other Cabalistic tokens, symbols, emblems, and signs
Ray Novosel, writing from Australia in 2004, states: "Zionist world leaders, men in influential positions with the various Masonic organizations everywhere, have worked ‘hand in glove’ for a universal world revolution, which will bring in the One World Church and a One World Government. Many Masonic Lodges are exclusively Jewish, as are the controlling B’nai B’rith Lodges—the mother of the infamous and very dangerous Anti-Defamation League (ADL)."
Albert Pike maintained that, "Every Masonic Lodge is a temple of religion; and its teachings are instruction in religion." Pike also asserted that the true meanings of the mysterious and arcane symbols of Freemasonry are found in the occult philosophy of the Jewish Cabala, that Freemasonry owes all its secrets to the Cabala, and that Freemasonry is a religion based on the Cabala.
Regrettably, few Christian leaders have the courage to even mention the Jewish Cabala, let alone expose it. Timid, little cowards, they are too frightened, worried they will be reported to the Jewish ADL thought police and that they might (horrors!) be branded an "anti-Semite."
Here at Power of Prophecy, however, we choose to serve God with boldness and courage. Truth is its own reward, and we know that, no matter what the evildoers try to do to us, God is our shield and our protector. The Cabala is a supreme work of darkness, and Ephesians 5:11 commands we unmask darkness. That is enough for me.

Madonna Has Faith On A String
By Olivia Barker, USA TODAY
The thread that ties Madonna to her celebrity friends is a scrap of yarn, scratchy to the touch, frayed at either end and knotted seven times.
The $26 Red String bracelet — said to deflect "envious stares and looks of ill will" — is perhaps the most visible symbol of Kabbalah, the spiritual movement rooted in Jewish mysticism that's weaving through Hollywood in a way not seen since Scientology attracted converts and controversy a decade ago.
And since Madonna first started singing Kabbalah's praises six years ago — literally, on her 1998 album Ray of Light— she has arguably become the practice's most prominent advocate.
The 45-year-old pop priestess introduced Britney Spears to the discipline last year. This month she wrapped Red Strings around the wrists of David and Victoria Beckham. And, of course, there's Madonna's director-husband, Guy Ritchie.
Madonna also apparently has spread the word to Demi Moore, who is known to have waxed Kabbalistic on the set of Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle. Now Moore and boyfriend Ashton Kutcher are fixtures at the movement's headquarters, the Los Angeles Kabbalah Center, as well as in celebrity magazines, often with Kutcher photographed wearing the white uniform meant to attract the positive energy, or light, that men, more than women, need to combat outsized egos. In fact, the word "kabbalah" comes from the Hebrew "to receive."
But for all the good vibes and ego-shrinking that Madonna says she has received thanks to Kabbalah, she has courted plenty of criticism, too — namely, for preaching a practice whose ties to traditional, ancient kabbalah are tenuous at best and treacherous at worst, rabbis and scholars say. Watchdog types say the Kabbalah Center is more about merchandising — "empowered" stones, soul-cleansing water, those $26 strings — than enlightenment.
Some are more blunt. The center is "not just a cult, but a dangerous cult," says Rabbi Immanuel Schochet, a Toronto-based scholar of Jewish philosophy and mysticism. "They are distorting kabbalah ... taking some of our sacred books and reducing it to mumbo jumbo, all kinds of hocus-pocus."
Madonna archly acknowledged the critics on May 16, when she was photographed leaving the center wearing a T-shirt emblazoned "Cult Member."
No doubt this brand of modern Kabbalah will face further scrutiny with the start this week of Madonna's Reinvention tour, which won't feature Friday night performances, reportedly so the star can observe the Sabbath.
Still, Reinvention is an apt title: Madonna, who was raised Catholic, has credited Kabbalah with helping to quash her Material Girl persona and achieve spiritual clarity.
She has made "generous donations" to Kabbalah charities, confirms her longtime publicist, Liz Rosenberg, as well as giving the money earned from her children's books to the center's Spirituality for Kids organization, a Kabbalah-based program for children. She's setting up stands in each concert venue to sell copies of The 72 Names of God: Technology for the Soul ($19.95), the seminal Kabbalah book written by the center's co-director, Rabbi Yehuda Berg. Proceeds go to Spirituality for Kids.
Her tour stylist and costume designer, Arianne Phillips, says concertgoers can expect "big-picture things that incorporate Kabbalist thinking. Her spirituality has really influenced the show. It's part of who she is."
During performances, Hebrew text culled from The 72 Names of God frequently flashes in the background.
Last year, Moore told Vogue that Kabbalah helps one reveal "the value of your worth." (She wasn't talking about $12.5 million movie deals.) And Roseanne Barr says Kabbalah is the force behind her own reinvention.
Nearly a decade ago, Barr was "addicted to showbiz and all that drama," she says. "I was working on a sitcom. I was a big control freak." When she got pregnant with her fifth child, she was told, "You have to give up the fight, all that stress."
Sandra Bernhard introduced her to the L.A. center, and soon Barr says she transformed chaos into serenity as a result of Kabbalah. Bernhard "got just about everyone" in Hollywood into it, says Barr, including, supposedly, Madonna.
"(Kabbalah) helped me to totally reconfigure my entire being, the way I thought, the way I did everything," says Barr, 51, who was raised Jewish in a family of rabbis.
Today she recites Kabbalistic meditations three to five times a day for five to 10 minutes at a time, often when she's sitting in traffic. "To think about something bigger than yourself is so cool, to get out of your own ego and stuff."
Barr is happy to see Kabbalah catch on in her community, where egos loom large. "I'm glad that people in Hollywood are looking for something besides showbiz to make the world a good and better place. It's good when it's a visible person who says it's changed their lives. People can see examples."
As for whether Kabbalah's trendiness diminishes its integrity, "I do worry about it a little bit. Is it going to be something that people are going to say next year is over?" Barr says. "In one way, I'd kind of be relieved when I see that, because people that are really into changing their lives and the way they think and making peace in the world will always continue. The people who are there for other reasons won't."
In fact, Berg says, more people started studying Kabbalah after Sept. 11, 2001, than during the late '90s, when Madonna first pushed it into the headlines. Each week about 50,000 students, at least half of whom aren't Jewish, attend seminars and programs at the center's 50 branches worldwide.
"I see tens of thousands of people whose lives have improved," says Berg, 32. "I'm not talking about the guy who couldn't walk who starts walking. I'm talking about the person who couldn't talk to his father for 25 years."
Others challenge, however, how much spiritual alchemy actually occurs courtesy of Kabbalah.
"Simple answers don't grow souls. Red threads and magic bottles of water don't change the world and don't change people," says Rabbi David Wolpe of L.A.'s Conservative Sinai Temple. "To the extent that deep spiritual truths are put in a blender and served as superficial pablum — it's a disservice to a great tradition, and it is no better than spiritual snake oil."
Some of Wolpe's 5,000 or so congregants — "thoughtful people" — attend the local center: "It leaves me a bit baffled," he says. But with celebrities prone to being "swept up in the latest spiritual craze," Wolpe says, their interest in Kabbalah makes more sense. "It's a bad model from celebrities who ought to be doing better."
Berg has heard the naysayers for years; it was his parents who, over three decades, turned the center from an obscure group to an alternative-faith phenomenon.
"Guy Ritchie always says, 'The difference between Kabbalah and Catholicism is the amount of people,' " says Berg, sitting in an office at the center's New York branch. A Madonna biography stands in the bookshelf behind him. "You don't call Catholicism a cult."
And if Madonna's outreach efforts find continued success, Berg says, the critics will be quieted.
"Eventually, when there's enough people doing Kabbalah" — when there are as many people wearing Red Strings as crosses — "it won't even be an issue."
