“And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.” -Genesis 17:7 When the Lord makes a covenant with is, he makes eternal covenants.

Teshuvah: the Restoration

“Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.” -Psalms 51:12 Gevurah has given us the strength to return home. The final step is Chesed, Hebrew for “kindness” or “love.” This term is commonly used in the Bible to describe God’s love for mankind. It refers to “tikkun olam,” Christ’s mercy repairing the world. It is the foundation of the Law (Keter): Love God and Love thy neighbor (Leviticus 19:18, 33-34, Matthew 5: 43-48; 22:36-40,…

Teshuvah: the Return

“Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid; for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song; he also has become my salvation.” -Isaiah 12:2 KJV, 2 Nephi 9:133 RAV, 22:2 OPV We have traveled through Keter, being Born Again.

It is the highest Sephirot above and between Da’at (knowledge) and Chokmah (wisdom). “It is the principle of all principles, the hidden Wisdom, the Crown which the Highest of the high, and by which all crowns and diadems are crowned” (Zohar 7:p.146).

Teshuvah & the Gospel of Jesus Christ

“The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.” -Mark 1:15 Teshuvah is a Hebrew word associated with repentance. However, it’s true meaning is “return,” as in one returning to their original state. We give the term Teshuvah to those new to Mormon Kabbalah for a few reasons. The main reason is because we are not leaving our old lives or old paths when we set Ego aside for something new.…
