kabbalah is jewish mysticism. i do not know about JW.
Kabbalah is Jewish mysticism. Don’t know a whole lot about Jehovah’s except that they don’t celebrate holidays and the religion has absolutely nothing to do with Judaism.
.Same set up, same ending only different publiser.
As I do not fully understand your question I would just tell you, that Kabbalah is a practical study method, that leads us to the direct perception of the so far hidden part of reality, by learning about ourselves and the system we exist in.
The proper use of this method can help us achieve the purpose of our life here on Earth.
I hope this helps, all the best.
Jehovah’s Witnesses – Their Beliefs
Their beliefs—not mixed with traditions, pagan ideas, or nationalistic ideals—are based entirely on the Bible, which they believe to be the unerring, inspired Word of God. This makes for some significant differences in basic beliefs.
Use of the divine name: The name JEHOVAH, Yahweh to some, may sound strange to many people, yet the use of it more than 7,000 times in the Bible argues that God’s worshipers are expected both to know and to use his personal name. (Psalm 83:18) Since Christians are “a people for his name,” Jesus used it in teaching his disciples. (Acts 15:14; John 17:26) In view of this, rather than thinking Jehovah’s Witnesses strange for using the name, would it not be more appropriate to ask why other religions do not consistently use it?—Malachi 3:16.
God’s Kingdom: A real government—though heavenly—with Christ Jesus as king, with dominion over the earth. It is not just ‘something in the heart.’ “The government will be upon his [Christ’s] shoulder.” (Isaiah 9:6, 7, Revised Standard Version) It will vindicate the rightful sovereignty of God. He “will set up a kingdom that will . . . put an end to all these [human] kingdoms,” restoring unity and world peace forever.—Daniel 2:44.
The human soul: Not something immaterial and immortal that somehow survives the death of the body but, rather, the person himself or the life he enjoys. When created “the man came to be a living soul.” (Genesis 2:7; 1 Corinthians 15:45) “Immortality of the soul is a Greek notion formed in ancient mystery cults and elaborated by the philosopher Plato.” (Presbyterian Life, May 1, 1970) So the dead are not really suffering anywhere. They are asleep. (Ecclesiastes 9:5, 10) The hope for a future life for the dead hinges on the role of Christ Jesus as a ransom sacrifice and depends on having the favor of God for a resurrection.—John 5:28, 29; Acts 17:31; 24:15; 1 Corinthians 15:13, 14.
The earth’s future: Earth will not become a lifeless cinder, either by God’s hand or by a nuclear holocaust. God “did not create it simply for nothing.” He “formed it even to be inhabited.” (Isaiah 45:18; Ecclesiastes 1:4) God’s Kingdom will see to it that his will shall “take place, as in heaven, also upon earth.” (Matthew 6:10) Then, “the righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will reside forever upon it.”—Psalm 37:29.
Jehovah’s Witnesses – Their Practices
These are also based on the Bible. Even though some of them may be viewed as odd, these very practices constitute significant identifying marks of true worship.
Public ministry: Many bring this up as a major difference in activity and organization. Yet, in this work Jehovah’s Witnesses obey Jesus’ command to “go . . . and make disciples.” Imitating the apostolic example, all who qualify as ministers can teach “publicly and from house to house.” (Matthew 28:19, 20; Acts 20:20) Some churches have the traditional clergy-laity division, but “there is not the slightest justification . . . for that ‘split-level’ distinction,” says Theology Today. Rather, as the Encyclopedia Canadiana observes: “The work of Jehovah’s Witnesses is the revival and re-establishment of the primitive Christianity practised by Jesus and his disciples during the first and second centuries. . . . All are brothers.”
Christian neutrality: Though little understood on this matter, Jehovah’s Witnesses remain neutral as to politics and to all forms of conflict that require one to hate one’s fellowman. (John 18:36; Isaiah 2:2-4) About early Christians, historian Edward Gibbon says: “They refused to take any active part in the civil administration or the military defence of the empire.” So, what at first might appear to be radical is really the peaceful role of those who must be “no part of the world.”—John 17:16.
Racism: “Racial discrimination—still an issue in some churches—is not a problem for Witnesses,” said a newspaper in the southern United States. A genuine love for their Christian brothers unites them in a worldwide brotherhood. Though imperfect like anyone else, they strive to apply among themselves the teaching of Jesus: “By this all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love among yourselves.”—John 13:35.
Kabbalah is Jewish mysticism. It is traditionally only studied by Jews who have mastered both the Torah and Talmud, and should not be even attempted by people who have not studied Torah.
The JWs are Christian, not Jewish
Jewish people were initially descendants of Judah, one of the tweve tribes of Israel, but since King David was from Judah all his subjects 0were called Jews by Romans prior to the destruction of Israel.
Kabbalah is a deep study of information called “the Zohar” which discusses at great length the meanings of what is not written but exists between the lines of the Torah, which means the Law, better known to non Jews as the Bible.
Jews may not study the Kabbalah itself until they are at least 40 but they can study commentaries on it by others.
The Kabbalah was around before Christianity . Some of it’s principles are hysics concepts In some ways it resembles concepts of Buddhism in regard to balance and theory of balancing the universe, which is the purpose of life everywhere.
The tree of Life is used to explain the soul of humanity, with balance on branches of one side to equal to those on the other. Upon the tree of Life are Sephiras , brilliant sapphires, incredible light. Light illuminates so truth can be seen while dark veils the truth.
At the top is the Crown of the tree of life is Kether.
on the left side is female and on the right side of the tree is masculine.
some people have studied Kabbalah to gain power like Aleister Crowly who gave Kabbalah study a bad name iin the minds of people with only limited knowledge.
the 12 signs of the zodiac are superimposed over the 12 tribes of israel, Judah being Leo, etc etc etc.
Kabbalists believe in balance aand that only children are allowed to take more than they give without throwing things off kilter. People who take must give back and people who give must take back or there can not be a wholesome relationship.
Jehovah Witnesses are a Christian sect who call themselves that but they are not generally related to any of the ten tribes of Israel who would not say the name for God out loud so freely for that would be to them taking the Lord God’s name in vain.
Jehovah Witnesses study the Bible and believe that only 144,000 people will be reborn into the messianic era. Isaac Asimov had a theory that the number 144,000 was 12 times 12 times a thousand which was much more than any town in those days had so it was just a super big number to say that a bery great number of people will return in the end of times,.
Jehovah witnesses aren’t supposed to vote in national elections, celebrate holidays like birthdays, not even Christmas or Easter.
Jews like Catholics center their lives around traditional holidays, so that is one thing that is notably different between hehovah Witnesses and Jews and Catholics.
to be saved a Jehovah’s Witness must save others so they go house to house distributing the Watch Tower, an pamphletes amd inviting people to convert to their sect of Christianity.
J W followers enjoy sharing their ideas on how the Bible is relavent in today’s world + They study the Bible with a passion, like Jews but accept the Roman New Testament which Jews do not believe to be God’s word but a paganized adaptation of various cults that can be stretched or shrunk to fit any culture the conquerors invade using priests as holy soldiers to get a food in the door .
