Jehovah and the Kabbalah
The Tree of Life is the basis of the Kabbalah, the esoteric Tradition behind the Bible. The Tree is quite clearly an astrological map of the solar system with all the planets and Signs of the zodiac.
All ancient faiths were based on the oldest science, astrology : the influence of the planets. The planets were the gods in Greece and Rome, Egypt and Babylon, India, Scandinavia, S. America …. Our current world faiths originated in the same ancient world. It should be no surprise to find they are also all based on astrology, all recognising One God.
Jehovah, the Father, is a portrait of Jupiter, Jove, the higher, divine dimension of this spirit, beyond the personal astrology of the horoscope.
This recognition, based on the Kabbalah, gives us the rational, credible, scientific and multifaith understanding of God we need in modern times. It strongly supports the message of the Bible, especially the Gospels, the message of love and peace but avoids the literal simplifications of fundamentalism.
The Tree of Life reveals astrology at the heart of the biblical Tradition, from Genesis (3.22) to Revelation (22.2) where its astrological character is confirmed, as too its role within Christianity : ‘The Tree of Life which bare twelve manner of fruit [the twelve Signs] and yielded her fruit every month.’ [The monthly cycle of the moon through the zodiac.]
Jehovah translates the famous Tetragrammaton, YHVH, Yahweh. In the Kabbalah, these Hebrew letters point to Jupiter’s throne on the Tree of Life.
Jehovah’s stormy character in the Old Testament perfectly portrays Jupiter’s nature. His title of Lord of Hosts suggests the expansive qualities of this planet god. Lord of Hosts is also the title of the Hindu representation of this deity, Ganesh.
Our Father is recognised in Islam as Allah, the Merciful and the Compassionate. These titles precisely define Jupiter’s astrological Signs, Sagittarius and Pisces and his seat on the Tree of Life is called Mercy.
Jehovah Overwhelming, the Lord of Hosts, explores this identity further.
