The Scripture says :
Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. 1 Thesasalonians 5:21
……..ancient rabbis taught that the revelation granted to Moses had been delivered in two forms, a smaller revelation in writing and the larger one kept oral. This “Oral Torah” had been transmitted faithfully by the leaders of each generation to their successors, by Moses to Joshua, and then to the elders, then to the prophets, to the men of the Great Assembly, to the leaders of the Pharisees, and finally to the earliest rabbis. The earliest rabbis saw themselves…as heirs to the Pharisees” (“Talmud,” Back to the Sources: Reading the Classic Jewish Texts. NY: Simon and Schuster, 1984, p. 130).
This supposed transmission of the “Oral Torah,” the tradition of the elders, from Moses to Joshua, to the prophets, was challenged by Yeshua the Messiah who clearly termed it NOT Torah, but the commandments of men which nullify the word and doctrine of YHWH , making the story of the transmission itself a fraud.
To be blunt, it is a LIE to claim that Moses issued two sets of laws, one written and therefore public, the other an oral tradition that was secret. In all of the Bible there is nothing to support this supposition. Notes Michael A. Hoffman II —
The spurious claim of an oral tradition of the elders bequeathed by God to Moses, is anti-Biblical and it was denounced by Yeshua the Messiah Himself. In the brilliance of Yeshua upon which the cunning and cleverness of the Pharisees was turned against them time and again, Yeshua very simply and forthrightly illuminated the fact that if the Pharisees’ tradition had been from Moses, then the Pharisees would have become followers and believers:
“For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me, for he wrote of me. But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?” (John 5:46-47).
Messiaht has just annihilated, in one paragraph, the basis for the so called religion of Judaism in those days and its conceit of a tradition given to it by Moses, for had such a tradition existed it would have testified of Yeshua.
Instead, He tells them point-blank that they don’t believe Moses. Yeshua crushed the whole beguiling system of indoctrination predicated on the Pharisaic myth of a divinely-inspired, oral tradition of the elders (Judaism’s Strange Gods, The Independent History and Research Co., 2000, p. 19). Those pharisees’s branchs were not Torah based but were walking in their own man-made inspirations.
Regarding the Kabbalah, Michael Hoffman states, in the Glossary to Judaism’s Strange Gods, the following:
Kabbalah. (“Tradition received”). Major treatises on magic and demonology produced by rabbis from the second century A.D. onward, pertaining to the use of “protective” amulets and charms, the determination of lucky and unlucky days and numbers and numerical codes within words; reincarnation, spells and rituals; the doctrine of magical androgyny and the “rectification” of God’s “imperfect Creation” through the redemptive capacity found only in the Jewish man. Two of the most prominent books of Kabbalah are the Sefer Yetzirah (“Book of Creation”) and the Zohar (“Book of Splendor”), which runs to five volumes in the abridged Soncino translation.
With Judaism’s prestige at an all-time high in the West, dozens of volumes of Kabbalah selections have been issued by major publishing houses with the demonology and racism excised, leaving only those portions that appeal to the appetite of New Age mystics for imaginary forays into realms of “bliss and harmony.” These publishers are quite successful at profiting from the human capacity for endless self-deception (p. 117).
With that said, no true follower of YHWH and Yeshua the Messiah should get involved with the obvious Satanic background of the Kabbalah.
This Oracle post comprise the meaning of “oracles” from the Scripture or Jewish point of view. The original, true definition of the term “oracles” applied to the Urim and Thummim alone — all other embellishments or additions up to the Messiah’s time were from the vivid imaginations of the rabbis and religious leaders.
