My Personal Review, Thoughts & Feelings On the Sitrei Torah “Secrets of the Torah” And “The Mysteries Reader” Both by Mr Stephen Pidgeon publisher of Eth Cepher Publishing
Even though Mr Stephen Pidgeon shared his involvement in writing books pertaining to Kabbalah and said he removed the Sitrei Torah from the Cepher Site is true.
However, to my discovery the Sitrei Torah is still being sold and promoted by Amazon and Barnes & Nobel websites and perhaps stores.
Also! The Companion Book to the Sitrei Torah “The Mysteries Reader” is being sold and promoted by Amazon and Barnes & Nobel as well.
The Mysteries Reader is Book 7 of the The Bible Reader series, and contains writings that concern the mysteries of the Torah The Mysteries Reader: A Collection of Hebraic Writings on the Mysteries of the Torah (The Bible Reader) (Volume 7): Stephen Pidgeon:
When a publishing company wants to sell their product through amazon, they register at the amazon services website and pay for a seller account. They can choose the plan they have with amazon. By just paying a little more, the seller can ask Amazon to store and ship their product for them.
The Seller has control over the account and can discontinue it at any time with a turnover time. If they stop paying Amazon to ship and sell, Amazon isn’t going to keep listing their item. It has been confirmed that as a seller, an account can be closed with Amazon in 72 hours.
Sitrei Torah, “Secrets of the Torah”
Defined By Kabbalah Online Organization – kabbalaonline.org
– Sitrei Torah, “Secrets of the Torah,” a mystical interpretation of certain passages of the Torah (found in Zohar I, 74a-75b, 76b-80b, 88a-90a, 97a-102a, 108a-111a, 146b-149b. According to some, the section of Zohar I, 15a-22b is the Sitrei Torah on Genesis).
– Midrash HaNe’elam, “Hidden Midrash,” on various sections of the Torah (Zohar Chadash 2b-30b; Zohar I 97a-140a; Zohar II, 4a-5b, 14a-22a) and on Song of Songs.
– Saba d’Mishpatim, the wisdom of an old man who reveals the secrets of reincarnation and transmigration contained in the section of the Torah dealing with the laws governing the Hebrew slave (Zohar II, 94b-114a). [For more dicussion of the Saba click here.]

The Book of Zohar
Also, in Kabbalah, Hebrew letters and words were highly symbolic and with esoteric meanings. They are also coded with gematria, which is numerology. Kabbalah Book of Zohar is said to be full of numerological codings hidden in Hebrew letters and geometrical symbols.
What Is the Zohar?
The Zohar is a collection of commentaries on the Torah, intended to guide people who have already achieved high spiritual degrees to the root (origin) of their souls. The Zohar was written for people who have already achieved spiritual perception. It contains the depictions of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai (Rashbi), who attained all 125 degrees of the spiritual ladder of degrees. Rashbi expressed the entire spiritual path and titled it “Zohar” (“radiance” in Hebrew). Discovering The Zohar means discovering your inner world and your unlimited potential.
The Zohar is built so that only those who achieve a certain spiritual level can benefit from what they read in it. Prior to studying The Zohar, one needs to study other texts that teach how to properly approach the text in The Zohar.
The Zohar contains all the spiritual states that people experience as their souls evolve. At the end of the process, the souls achieve what Kabbalah refers to as “the end of correction,” the highest level of spiritual wholeness.
Unfortunately Christians often think that learning Hebrew and gematria are the thing to do. If done correctly, studying Scriptural Hebrew (but definitely not gematria) will certainly help in understanding scripture. But, one must be very careful, when being taught by Messianic rabbis and Hebraic Roots teachers, for their teachings are heavily Kabbalistic. It means what they teach is rooted in esoteric knowledge that has nothing to do with the original truth from the Five Books of Moses. Many become impressed by their esoteric knowledge, and also out of respect for the Hebrew Scriptures, become easily deceived by what is taught.
These false teachers have Hi-Jacked many aspects of our Natsariym heritage and replaced it with Kabbalah and Judaism culture and traditions. We need to be aware of the fact scholars report that the modern Khazarian Kabbalistic Jews have been controlling what is available to the public in terms of archaeological findings and scholastic materials.
My Personal Thoughts and Comments:
First let me say the Eth Cepher Bible is too full of errors for me to recommend to anyone.
Personally I can not recommend the Sitrei Torah, “Secrets of the Torah” when it fact it is definitely linked and tied to the practice of Kabbalah and a direct link to the Book of Zohar and other Jewish Mystics that practiced Jewish Mysticism.
Why in the world would I want to read and be influenced by a book by a bunch of Jewish Kabbalist that go by a book other than the Word of YAHUAH?
Why would I want to follow their instructions in a book that the writers (the Jewish Mystics) that make it a Capitol Crime just keeping YAHUAH’s Instructions and speaking and writing His Name and a people that denies YAHUSHA being the Messiah.
Why would I want to listen or read anything that those that call themselves Jews (Yahudim) and are not Jews (Yahudim) that wants the world to enforce the Noahide Laws and have our head decapitated for keeping YAHUAH’s Commandments, Feasts and Sabbaths and speaking and writing His Name?
I cannot in good conscious recommend the reading of the Sitrei Torah “Secrets of the Torah” no matter who the Publishing company is.
I personally and publicly want to apologize to those I have influenced to support and buy into a book or publishing company that has published such a book that would lead people into the practice of Kabbalah in any way shape or form.
I knew that the Publishers of Cepher Group and I had our differences such as who and what is the Beast System. From what I understand Cepher feels that Islam is the Beast System personally I feel it is Rome that rides the Beast of Revelation.
Also we differ on the Calendar. They support a type of Jewish Lunar Solar Calendar and I personally feel strongly that it is the Zadokite-Enochian Based Priestly Calendar As Found in the Dead Sea Scrolls that is YAHUAH’s Calendar and the one that YAHUSHA went by and not the Jewish Lunar Solar Calendar.
Plus, I believe that we should not be Observing or the Keeping of any Man Made Holiday’s. Whether Catholic or Jewish.
Especially for those who are just coming out of Pagan Holiday’s then to turn around and keep Jewish Man Made Holiday’s such a Hanukkah, Purim and others.
Why would we want to trade one religion for another?
They are also certain words being used in the Cepher that I feel strongly is a translation error such as Cross instead of Stake, Crucify instead of Impaled and especially Moon instead of Month to name a few.
These differences I just mentioned I can not live with.
However, when any publishing company publishes a book that is clearly linked and tied to Kabbalah, especially the book of Zohar and Jewish Mysticism that is the last straw and I am compiled to draw the line.
