April 9, 2020: One Little Goat

Happy Passover 2020.
Very brief thread about one portion of the reading from last night—“Chad Gadya” (at the end)Image

The Passover Seder (“Seder” means “order,” like we do things in order) involves reading a book called a “Haggadah” (a “telling.”)

There are different “tellings” for some of our different holidays.

A lot of Jewish people collect different Haggadas; they can be like swag.Image

It’s a very mystical meal for us, the prayers mean more than what they sound like, and frankly we normally don’t really know what we are saying beyond the superficial.

This is the last prayer as mentioned. “A GOAT” (!!!!)Image

As I said I have to keep this one short, so putting the bottom line up front: A GOAT!Image

The ceremony is about being freed from slavery. We are supposed to see ourselves as being freed today. And the last thing we read is about A GOAT!

The prayer (song?) starts with a “little goat” that “my father bought.”

It ends with God slaughtering the Angel of Death, which had slaughtered everything involved in the story after the goat.

I looked for different mystical explanations of this prayer/song, but none was satisfying.

The lyrics are “weird,” which means they mean more than what’s on the surface.

Dad buys goat.
Cat “devours” goat. (How?)
Dog “bites” cat (doesn’t kill)
Stick (who is holding it) “beats” dog.
Fire burns stick.
Water quenches fire.
Ox drinks water.
Slaughterer slaughters ox.

Angel of Death kills slaughterer.

God slaughters Angel of Death.

Let me leave this open ended, knowing that we know:

Azazel – goat

Baphomet – goat

Occultists reverse.

More later, hopefully.

Okay, hello.

So, it’s been a few hours. We’re talking about the very last prayer in the Passover Seder (Jewish holiday ritual meal) which talks about someone buying a goat, and ends with God slaughtering the Angel of Death.

There is clearly more here than meets the eye.

Let’s get the goat thing out of the way first. In this story, the goat represents Israel, which will be saved from her enemies [PLACEHOLDER] in the end by God.…

What is “chad gadya” really all about?Why do we sing “chad gadya” at the pesach seder? What is it supposed to be about? Also, as a side question, is it “d’zabin aba” or “dizvan aba”?

But the goat is what the satanists worship!

The Origin of the Baphomet, or Why Goats Are SatanicHave you ever wondered what the Baphomet stands for? Or why people think that goats are Satanic? Explore how the goat was co-opted by modern day Satanists.

A Condensed History of Goat WorshipOur author examines the role of the goat throughout modern society, up to and including the goat as a symbol in metal music.

And this comes partially from the fact that on the holiest day of the year for Jews, (Yom Kippur), a goat is killed “destructively” [in an unusually gross and heartless way] and pushed off a cliff – to atone for our sins.

The Cruel Death of the Scapegoat: Ask the Rabbi ResponseIn the Yom Kippur service with the two goats, one of the goats – the se’ir la’azazel – was taken out to be pushed off a cliff – and would be broken to pieces. What was the point of doing something so…

M’oray Ha’Aish Parshat Yom Kippur: Goat for AzazelThe ultimate choice of good vs. evil.

Goats thus became associated with sin, even though

“Rabbi Menachem Azarya DeFano….explains that…Azazel is an acronym for ze le’umat ze asa Elokim – “God has made one [GOOD] as well as the other [EVIL],” in Hebrew.

M’oray Ha’Aish Parshat Yom Kippur: Goat for AzazelThe ultimate choice of good vs. evil.

He is commenting on this verse:

“In the day of prosperity be joyful, in the day of adversity consider: God has made the one as well as the other.” (Ecclesiastes 7:14)

The goats themselves do not represent good and evil. Rather, two goats that looked exactly the same were chosen before the Yom Kippur sacrifice, and they would cast lots to determine which one would be killed.

The point of this ritual is to emphasize a few things.
1) God created both good and evil – there is no evil kingdom that “opposes” God with any reality
2) Good and evil often look alike on the surface – you have to choose wisely.

Now, in Jewish writings, the Azazel ritual uses the phrase “for Azazel.” In Hebrew this can also mean “to Azazel.”

So…Azazel could mean a place (“the wilderness”)

It could also mean a named being (“to Azazel” or “for Azazel”).

The goat (symbolizing sinful choices) sent over.

The Yom Kippur ritual is psychologically about amputating the bad parts of the self and sending them back to the demonic realm.…

About a week before Yom Kippur, we cast our sins to the fishes, through the rite of “Tashlich” – we take bread and crumble it up and throw it out into the water.

Reading this, one thing that becomes clear is the utter falsity of all the satanic mumbo jumbo. They clearly do not know what they’re talking about, even as they try to appropriate Judaism…it all falls apart when you look at it up close.

Reminds me of a fable.

It goes like this – the source is Rabbi Nachman of Breslov, a great sage.

The evil inclination runs around laughing, and taunting the ordinary man.

“What do you suppose I have in my hand?”

He keeps the man guessing, and wanting, and making up ideas in his head.

Finally the man “bites,” and guess what, it’s…nothing. But his soul is lost.

The entirety of the Passover Seder is aimed at telling us about the futility of evil.

Even though the bad guys might seem to be winning, they aren’t going to win in the end.

Bear with me.

The prayer we read about freeing the slaves would appear to be about a very few people: Yisrael, Israel, “the loan kid goat.”…

The innocent goat was “purchased” by Father (God) because the Jews said “we will do and we will listen,” “naaseh venishma,” meaning that we will obey before we understand why we are obeying.

But “the cat bit the goat,” the Jews hurt themselves (ourselves), because “refused to recognize their Master in Heaven and cast doubt on God,”; “they acted like a cat who does not know its own master.” (Ephod Bad)…
Pesach Haggadah, Nirtzah, Chad Gadya 2Then came a cat and ate the kid that my father bought for two zuz, one kid, one…

Amalek, which attacked the Jews on the way out of Egypt, is the dog here.

Amalek, which TOLD Pharoah to go get the Jews.

They “bit the cat,” they saw God’s deliverance — and they didn’t care.

They arise in every generation.

Destined to be completely forgotten by history.Image

For a time, Moses could carry the weight of the people. The “stick” that “hit the dog, that bit the cat, that ate the kid that Father bought” is Moses’ staff.

He invoked the righteousness of the Patriarchs and Matriarchs to do it.Image

But Moses could not carry them all the time. When he went to a spiritual plane to receive the Torah, the troublemakers from Egypt (the EREV RAV) rebelled, made a fire, & melted jewelry into a golden calf.

Moses saw all this, smashed the tablets and his staff was consumed.Image

You can see how this prayer is really about human history, and I am going to argue that we do not see the full picture as we should.

The song/prayer tells us that after “the fire burnt the stick…” “then came water and extinguished the fire.” A commentary explains that this refers to the Jews, who ground up the Golden Calf and mixed it with water and drank it in an atonement ritual.Image

The forcible drinking of the water mixed with ash is parallel to the Sotah ritual, where a woman suspected of adultery is forced to drink water into which God’s name is written on a piece of paper, and then dissolved.

The repentance does not last. “Then came a bull, that drank the water…”
Here we are talking about King Jeroboam, who essentially repeated the sin of the golden calf…until Cyrus the Great helped the Jews recover, return, and rebuild.

Idolatry as betrayal.

For a time, the evil inclination (toward IDOLATRY/the OCCULT) is “silenced.”

(The “slaughterer” here refers to the Jewish ritual slaughterer; the “ox” is the golden calf of greed, temptation, idolatry, etc.)

But not everyone can follow the plan or the path of life. And so the angel of death “slaughtered the shochet [ritual slaughterer].” Evil continued to rule.

The final verse, of course, is that “God wins.”

“Then came the Holy One, blessed be He and slaughtered the angel of death, who slaughtered the schochet, who slaughtered the bull, that drank the water, that extinguished the fire, that burnt the stick, that hit the dog, that bit the cat, that ate the kid that my father bought”

In the end, God kills the “angel of death,” aka evil, which is the true enemy of the Jews, and of all people.

Now here is where we take a bit of a turn.

We learn that in the time of the Redemption, the Messiah will gather in all the Jews, even those who aren’t actually known to be Jews.

How will we recognize the Messiah?

After all that is what this prayer is about – slavery to freedom – redemption.

The Laws Concerning Mashiach – Chapters 11 & 12 of Hilchos Melachim from the Mishneh Torah of the Rambam – >

“In future time, the King Mashiach1 will arise and renew the Davidic dynasty, restoring it to its initial sovereignty. He will rebuild the [Beis Ha]Mikdash and gather in the dispersed remnant of Israel.”

The Laws Concerning Mashiach – Chapters 11 & 12 of Hilchos Melachim from the Mishneh Torah of the Rambam – >

Deuteronomy 30:3-5: “And the L‑rd your G‑d will bring back your captivity and have compassion upon you. He will return and gather you [from among all the nations]….”

“Even if your dispersed ones are in the furthest reaches of the heavens, [from there will G‑d gather you in]…. G‑d will bring you [to the land]….”

Rambam (Maimonides): “One should not entertain the notion that the King Mashiach must work miracles and wonders, bring about new phenomena within the world, resurrect the dead, or perform other similar deeds. This is [definitely] not true.”

“If a king will arise from the House of David who delves deeply into the study of the Torah and, like David his ancestor, observes its mitzvos as prescribed by the Written Law and the Oral Law”

“if he will compel all of Israel to walk in [the way of the Torah] and repair the breaches [in its observance]; and if he will fight the wars of G‑d; — we may, with assurance, consider him Mashiach.”

“If he succeeds in the above, builds the [Beis Ha]Mikdash on its site, and gathers in the dispersed remnant of Israel, he is definitely the Mashiach.”

“He will then perfect the entire world, [motivating all the nations] to serve G‑d together, as it is written, “I will make the peoples pure of speech so that they will all call upon the Name of G‑d and serve Him with one purpose.”

“One should not entertain the notion that in the Era of Mashiach any element of the natural order will be nullified, or that there will be any innovation in the work of creation. Rather, the world will continue according to its pattern.”

The Messiah MUST therefore bring in the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel

The Messiah MUST therefore bring in the Christian people. Jesus was a religious Jew.

Matthew 25:31-46

The Sheep and the Goats

31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne.”

(I take this to mean the Messiah, who is born a normal human being, but is so spiritual as to be a God-appointed Redeemer.)

32 “All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.”

33 “He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.”

This is Judgment Day.

“34 “Then the King will say to those on his right [THE SHEEP], ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. “

“35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in,

“36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’”

41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.”

42 “For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink,”

“43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’”

You see, the GOAT can go either way – good or bad.

That is the parable at the end of the Passover Seder.

It is a story of continuous waffling.

At the time of the Redemption, all will be gathered, and all will be judged as well.

“In Isaiah 56 and 58, God told Israel, “You’re doing all your religious exercises, but those things mean nothing if you ignore the poor. You claim to know me, but you turn a deaf ear to the poor. You don’t know me.”

What’s the Spiritual Difference Between Sheep and Goats…and Which Are You?Do you know the spiritual difference between sheep and goats? One of the more alarming aspects of Jesus’ parables is that many of them seem be about showing us that not all of those who consider them…

Genesis 26:4: “I will make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and will give them all these lands, and through your offspring all nations on earth will be blessed.”…

There are many more of us than we think.

We go under all sorts of labels.
