Realize, that TWO systems of Jewish oral teachings were created, one public and one secret. In the many centuries before the LORD Jesus Christ came in the flesh, this deadly virus penetrated Jewish religious leaders. These Jewish leaders were dabbling in the occult. A Jewish secret oral tradition began to be developed and put forward, distinctly separate from God's WRITTEN Word. The public teaching dealt with the affairs of everyday life, such as laws on buying and selling and making contracts, and what constituted work on the Sabbath; this practical law was later called the Talmud. The LORD Jesus strongly railed against these man-made laws upon the people, because it bound them so tightly to the priests. And, these standards were not from God; they were man-made so that the priests could control the people.
So, here we have, the Jewish priesthood, formulating a plan to bring all Jewish people into spiritual and physical bondage by creating this dual system of the public Talmud plus the very secret Kabbalah. The teachings of the public Talmud bound the people by almost 1,000 rules of everyday living and it began to move them away from the spiritual truth that God had revealed to Moses. Thus, an important requirement of a Mystery Babylon Secret Society was fulfilled: that of hiding the Truth from the people...partly by outright fabrication and partly by adding to God's Law.
Since Satan is the "lord of this World" he has the power to prosper those who follow and worship him. This was the bait that attracted those Jewish religious leaders to the Kabbalah. And, make no mistake about the fact that these Jewish leaders prospered greatly. Even though Israel was suffering under the bondage of Gentile rulers, such as Greece and Rome, the Jewish priests won a certain autonomy which enabled them to virtually rule dictatorially over their Jewish citizens. And, the common Jewish citizen simply did not understand that these religious leaders had foisted upon them a system which simultaneously put them under a yoke of bondage while elevating these leaders to positions of great power and wealth. And, the depth of misunderstanding was so great that the average Jewish citizen still greatly admired and honored these religious leaders who were so afflicting them.
