The Heel of Esau and the Stone that the Builders Rejected

The Heel of Esau
and the Stone that the Builders Rejected
James Scott Trimm

We read in Matthew:

38 Behold, your house is forsaken; to you desolate.
39 And I tell you, that you will not see Me here after,
until you say,
Blessed is He that comes in the Name of YHWH!
(Matt. 23:38-39)

Of course this is quoting Ps. 118:26:

"Blessed be he that comes in the Name of YHWH; we bless you out of the House of YHWH." (Ps. 118:26).

Above this is the phrase “the stone the builders rejected is become the chief corner-stone” (Ps. 118:22)

Now we read in the Zohar concerning the stone that the builders rejected:

David, indeed, was king in this world and will be king in the time to come; hence “the stone the builders rejected is become the chief corner-stone”. For, when the sun turns away his face from the moon, and does not shine upon her, she has no light whatever and so does not shine, but is poverty-stricken and dark on all sides; but when the sun turns towards her and radiates his light upon her, then her face is illumined and she adorns herself for him as a woman for a man. She thus is then invested with the dominion of the world. So David adorned himself after this very manner. Now he would appear poor and dejected, but then again he would be revelling in riches. Hence David's declaration, “I am small and despised, yet have I not forgotten thy precepts.” It behoves, indeed, every man to follow this example and to humble himself in every respect so as to become a vessel in which the Holy One, blessed be He, may find delight. This lesson has also been expounded in connection with the phrase, “with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit’ (Isa. LVII, 15).’
(Zohar 2:232b)

The Zohar says that when this stone is rejected "the sun turns away his face from the moon, and does not shine upon her."

Earlier the Zohar says:

So it says: AND HIS HAND HAD HOLD ON ESAU'S HEEL , i.e he put his hand on Esau's heel in order thereby to force him down. According to another explanation, the words “and his hand had hold” imply that he could not escape him entirely, but his hand was still clinging to his brother's heel. Esoterically speaking, the moon was obscured through the heel of Esau; hence it was necessary to deal with him cunningly, so as to thrust him downwards and make him adhere to the region assigned to him.’
(Zohar 1:138a)

The moon is obscured "through the heel of Esau", and therefore the stone is rejected "through the heel of Esau" because the sun "turns away his face".

And to whom does the sun refer:

Moses asked: ' Shall they remain in pledge for ever?’ God replied: ‘No, only Until the sun appears’ that is, till the coming of the Messiah; for it says, But unto you that fear My name shall the sun of righteousness arise with healing in its wings (Mal.3:20).
(Midrash Rabba Ex. 31:10)

So what does this mean?

It points us to Gen. 25:26 which reads:

And after that, came forth his brother. And his hand had hold on Esav's heel, and his
name was called Ya’akov. And Yitz’chak was threescore years old when she bore them.

If we take the first letter of each word (a process called Notarikon) starting with the name Ya'akov (Jacob) and ending with Esav (Esau) going backwards we spell the name YESHUA, and if we continue through the next two words we read "Yeshua comes."

So the moon is obscured in shining the light of Messiah by the heal of Esau.

Now the last letter in YESHUA in the Hebrew is an AYIN and that is the initial letter of the name ESAU in "Esau's heel". So if the heal of "Esau" is taken from YESHUA we have "YESHU".

"Yeshu" is a name used in Rabbinic Judaism which refers to the anathema Rabbinic Judaism associates with Yeshua.

For Rabbinic Jews is is a acronym for a curse on the name of Yeshua meaning "may the name be blotted out forever".

But Yeshua said:

38 Behold, your house is forsaken; to you desolate.
39 And I tell you, that you will not see Me here after,
until you say,
Blessed is He that comes in the Name of YHWH!
(Matt. 23:38-39)

They will say "Blessed is He that comes in the Name of YHWH!" (Ps. 118:26) when they accept the "stone that the builder rejected" (Ps. 118:22). This happens when the AYIN is restored to the name YESHUA, the reversal of the anathema, thus the Messiah, the Sun of Righteousness, will shine his light on the moon, which was obscured by the "heel of Esau". And when the “heel of Esau” no longer obscures the “Sun of Righteousness” and YESHU is restored to YESHUA, then we can clearly see that “Yeshua comes”!

If you are learning from the free videos and articles from James Trimm and the Worldwide Nazarene Assembly of Elohim, do not forget to support this work with your tithes and offerings.  You make this work possible.  This work is not supported by Christian or Rabbinic groups, they will never support this work.  It is up to you to support this work.  It is you who help us to reach Babylon with Torah and Rabbinic Judaism with Mashiach!  It is you who helps us bring the message of Torah and Messiah to the lost world.  It is you who help us bring milk to new believers and nice juicy steaks for mature believers.

I know many of you are learning from the work we are doing here at Worldwide.  Now we need your help.

As you may know, our rent has been past due. We got the certified mail early this week, at that time we owed, including late fees, $2,373.

Unfortunately it took us too long to raise this money.  We tried to pay the rent last night on their website, but the site said our account did not exist.  We called first thing this morning and learned that an eviction was already filed.   They are willing to withdraw the eviction, but we are going to have to pay their legal fees to make that happen. (We probably won't have a total until Monday, but cannot wait until then to start raising the funds.  Plus we need to get started now raising funds to dig out of this hole and cover April rent as well, so this does not happen again.)

A donation of any amount will help!


As many of you know, my wife recently got home after a more than fifty day hospitalization.  She spent that time fighting for her life (she was put in ICU on a ventilator twice, and had three major surgeries.)  We came home broke. Now the electric bill and rent are both due. 

 As I have said to you many times, I look on this work as a co-operative one with me, and all of you combining our resources together in order to get the job done of helping to teach this great truth to all in the world who will listen. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for your continued support, you are the ones who make it all possible by your contributions and your prayers for our work. I truly appreciate your help in every way.
