As written in the “E-Book” the “The Well of Living Water” we read about the primordial era of the “Spiritual History of the World” written by the esteemed Rabbi Avraham Sutton, author of the book, “Spiritual Technology” who wrote the following of that Edenic world pre-existing prior to the Era of Mankind.
Rabbi Avraham Sutton – “We will now explore the spiritual history of the world in term of the Six Days of Creation that preceded (and set the stage for) the physical history of the world.
According to the midrashim (which, again, were the repository for the deepest teachings of Sod that the sages transmitted), the world was not yet physical as it is now when Adam and Chavah were placed in Gan Eden on the sixth day of creation. This is all the more-true of the first through fifth days.
According to this midrashic-sod level, the story of Genesis is not talking about the physical reality. Rather, the six days of creation delineated the states in the process through which G-d brought a physical world into existence.
In addition, our souls were present at every stage of this process. We were the molecules in the Big Bang, so to speak. We were the fruits of the trees in the Garden. We were Avraham’s and Yaacov’s sheep… This is hinted in kabbalistic-midrashic language in the Zohar.
Rabbi Abba opened his discourse: Elokim created Adam in His image” (Genesis 1:27). Come see! When the Blessed Holy One created Adam, He made him in the image of the upper and lower dimension [in such a way that] he is a microcosm of all of them.”
In the Idra Rabba, (Zohar Naso, Idra Rabba, 3:135a, we read:
“Above the firmament…like the appearance of sapphire, was the likeness of a Throne; and over the likeness of the Throne, was a likeness that was like the appearance of a Man, on it from above.” (Ezekiel1:26).
Like the appearance of a Man that contains all forms. Like the appearance of Man in which all the upper and lower dimension are concealed. Like the appearance of Man which contains all the mysteries that were spoken and rectified before the world was created.”
In the Zohar Raya Mehemna Pinchas,3:238b, we read,(2:38b) we read:
“Elokim said: Let us make Man in our image and in our likeness, and let him rule over the fish of the sea, the birds of the heavens, the livestock animals and all the earth, and every land animal that walks the earth. Elokim thus created Man in His image, in the image of the Elokim He created him, male and female He created them” (Genesis 1:26-26)
After G-d completed every detail of creation, He said to them, “I have one more creature to make who will be a partner with all of us. All of you join-together so that you can give him something of yourselves. I too will join you to give him a portion of Myself.” This is the meaning of “Let us make Man in our image and in our likeness…
Similarly, in Likutey Torah Haazinu, R. Chayim Vital writes in the name of the Ari:
G-d created four main universes – atzilut, beriah, yetzirah, and asiyah. To join all of them together, He created Man. For Man contains within himself [aspects of] all the universes of beriah was to give Man his neshamah (divine soul-breath); yetzirah was to give him his ruach (vivifying spirit), which is the portion of the chayot-angels…; asiyah gave him his nefesh (indwelling soul.)
After this, He Himself gave him His portion [from the level of atzilut], as it is written, “He breathed into his nostrils the nefesh hayyah (“breath of life) and man became a nishmat hayyim and man became a living soul (nefesh ḥayyah). (“living soul”)…In sum, when man refines himself and walks in the ways of the Creator, he binds all the universes together.
According to the Jewish traditions, Adam and Chavah (Eve) were angelic beings sent into the Garden of Eden in order to perform an awesome task that would have repercussions on the entirety of creation.
The exalted level on which Adam and Chavah existed is beyond our imagination. According to the Talmud, they could see “from one end of the universe to the other,” which means from the highest spiritual dimension down to the physical world. Because the molecular structure of reality was different, their “bodies” were not physical in the sense that we know it.
They were pure “light” and their ability to grasp truth and reality was equally different. They were so connected to the Source of Life that they could close their “eyes” and travel into other dimensions. Their ability to know G-d and experience His presence was awesome.
With Adam and Chavah’s choice to eat the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge, they essentially severed themselves from the inner teachings of the Tree of Life. As the Torah itself hints, these teachings became obscured, like luscious fruits hidden in the thick skins and shells.
The level of consciousness which Adam and Chavah had tasted before eating of the Tree of Knowledge was concealed. Their “light” bodies were clothed in material “garments of skin.”
Thus, as a result of the fact that their “light” bodies were clothed in material “garments of skin,” the Godly light that they had seen (and with which they had seen) “from one end of the universe to the other” was occluded.
The Tree of Life was surrounded and encased by the Tree of the Knowledge of Knowledge. That awesome Oneness they had experience was broken and fragmented. Because we are familiar with nothing but fragmentation, it is impossible for us to image the trauma they experienced.
In a sense, the Tree of Life has gone “underground.” Adam and Chavah now received a teaching which was appropriate with the level of consciousness they had manifested in choosing to eat from the Tree of Knowledge. The Tree of Life teachings were still there, like the soul in the body, but our access to them had become limited and indirect.
This theme is repeated with the giving of the Torah (and later on with the two Temples in Jerusalem). The tradition states that the original Luchot haBrit (Tables of the Covenant) and the original Torah received by Moshe on Mount Sinai was the Torah of the Tree of Life. But, again, our consciousness was not ready to receive it.
Moshe came down the mountain with the First Tablets while the Children of Israel were involved in idol consciousness of the golden calf variety. The Torah says that Moshe threw the Tablets down when he saw the people dancing around the golden calf. On a deeper level, the letters which HaShem had inscribed in the Tablets flew heavenward. As a result, the Tablets became so heavy that they fell from Moshe’s hands and broke.
The letters of the Tablets, the Tree of Life, could not exist in close proximity with the consciousness of the golden calf. Instead, we were vouch safed a second part of Tablets corresponding to the Tree of Knowledge. The “fragments” of the original Tablets were hidden in the Ark of the Covenant alongside the Second Tablets.
The Tree of Life teachings were still there, like the soul in the body, but our access to them had become obstructed. Thus a second opportunity had been lost for us to connect ourselves directly as a nation with the teaching of the Tree of Life.
Our job is to reconnect the Tree of Knowledge to its source in the Tree of Life. For one thing, this means that behind the fragmented reality we perceive there is an awesome Oneness that is waiting to be revealed. The One-ness is never obliterated by the fragmentation it spawns, it is only hidden.
Conceptually, this can be expressed in the following way: HaShem wishes to reveal, we lose it, everything falls apart, our world disintegrated, we descent into a world which conceals the totality we have just experienced and we are left with having to put the pieces back ourselves.”
So, it appears that truly the end-of-days is at the turning junction of transforming mankind who have proven to be “safe-to-save” back into our prior spiritual existence as associated with the preparation of this Planet Earth into the soon to come; the 4th dimensional consciousness of Adam and Eve who did live in the Garden of Eden in the world that was and will return.

Destination Yisrael scans the world for information that has relevance on the time of the end. It is our prayer that this will allow the believers in the Almighty One of Israel to “watch and be ready”. Our readiness has nothing to do trying to halt the progression of evil on our planet earth. In our readiness, we seek to be prepared for the coming of the Messiah of Israel so that goodness and evil will be manifested in its fullest.
Our preparation is a pathway of spiritual readiness for a world of peace. Our defender is the Metatron, the Lord of hosts. The time of the end suggests that the Eternal One of Israel’s intent is to close out this chapter of earth’s history so that the perpetrators of evil, those that seek power, greed and control, will be eliminated from this planet earth.
The wars of the heavens are being played out on this planet earth and humans will live through it to testify of the might, power, justice and the love of the God of Israel.
In a world of corruption and disinformation, we cannot always know what the historical truth is and who is promoting evil or mis-information.
