The scripture Matthew 7:22 is one that most religious leaders don’t seem to understand or choose to ignore. As a result, most of those who call themselves Christians are completely unaware that they remain under the creators’ law even though leaders of most popular Christian denominations have instructed them they are no longer under the law
22 “Many will say to Me on that day, “Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’
23 “And then I will declare to them, “I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.’
But the Scripture has shut up everyone under sin, so that the promise by faith in Yahshua messiah might be given to those who believe.
23 But before faith came we were kept in custody under the law, being shut up to the faith which was later to be revealed.
24 Therefore the Law has become our tutor to lead us to Yahshua, so that we may be justified by faith.
25 But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor.
Ministers today also quote Galatians 4:5,6&7 to convince their listeners that they do not need to follow the creators Law.
4 But when the fullness of the time came, Yahweh sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law,
5 so that He might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.
6 Because you are sons, Yahweh has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!”
7 Therefore you are no longer a slave, but a son; and if a son, then an heir through Elohim.
Because these verses and others have been misunderstood or deliberately misquoted millions of listeners will not be in the kingdom when the messiah returns.
Let’s go back and read the messiah’s own words we started with in Matthew chapter 7:
21 “Not everyone who says to Me, “Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter.
22 “Many will say to Me on that day, “Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’
23 “And then I will declare to them, “I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.’
These words did not come from just anyone they came from the messiah himself. They seem very clear. Many will be told on a very important day that they will not be with the messiah because they practiced lawlessness.
The premise that people must keep the laws of Yahweh to be eligible for eternal life is likely difficult to accept because millions have been taught by their religious leaders it is not necessary to keep the Creators laws since he sent his Son to earth to die for the forgiveness of the sins of man.
In verse 21 of Matthew, the messiah tells us that those who do not follow the will of the father will be told to depart from the son. They will be surprised. They will argue but didn’t we do the work you wanted us to perform, and we did it in your name. ( Matt.7: 22). But the son will tell them I never knew you so get away from me.
Imagine that! What a surprise these people will have! They have believed their minister for years only to now discover they were not doing the will of the father and that the son has rejected them. The son himself tells us that this will happen too many. Why? They did not follow the will of the father. They thought they were. They performed some kind of work they thought was what the father wanted, but they were wrong. Have you ever wondered why there are so many different religions? Why do they all think they are right? The answer to that question is in Revelation 12:9
From just the verses in Matthew chapter 7 we can know that those who do not do the will of the father will not be with the messiah on a very important day. They will be told the reason they did not do the will of the father; they did not keep the father’s law, and therefore they will not be with the son. You can put up as many objections as you want. You can read as many verses as you want, you can listen to as many preachers as you want, these verses are very clear. If you do not keep the law of the father you are not doing the will of the father. If you think otherwise, and most Christians do, you are going to very surprised on a very important day in the future when you approach the son for your reward.
What is the source of this confusion? The easy answer is Satan and that would be true except, each person will be held accountable for his or her own actions. They will not have any excuse on that important day. Please
Note, that when the son sends away those people who practice lawlessness and did not do the will of the father he did not say unless you have been mislead by your minister, or Satan made you do it.
Each person is responsible for his or her own salvation. You alone must know what the will of the father is and how to perform that will. If you think that you will be saved by your faith alone let’s look at some verses that should teach differently.
20 But are you willing to recognize, you foolish fellow, that faith without works is useless?
21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered up Isaac his son on the altar?
22 You see that faith was working with his works, and as a result of the works, faith was perfected;
23 and the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “AND ABRAHAM BELIEVED GOD, AND IT WAS RECKONED TO HIM AS RIGHTEOUSNESS,” and he was called the friend of God.
24 You see that a man is justified by works and not by faith alone.
25 In the same way, was not Rahab the harlot also justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out by another way?
26 For just as the body without the spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead.
In these verses the apostle James, the half-brother of the messiah, tells all who read the bible that faith without works is dead. James also tells us that we cannot be justified or just without works. Faith alone is not enough to make anyone just. It is interesting to note that James used Abraham as an example of works. Just believing that the father would do what he said was not enough. Abraham had to pass a test by the father. A very tough test, he had to be willing to kill his only son by his wife Sarah, to prove he really had faith in the Father.
You may recall that Satan tested the son himself shortly after he was baptized. All of the apostles were tested, even to the point of death. Some ministers teach that those who accept the son as their saviour and become baptized will lead a better physical life, things will go their way. All they must do is believe and trust. That is not what the scriptures say!
Let’s clear up this misconception of no law. Start With Matthew 5: 17-19
7 “Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill.
18 “For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished.
19 “Whoever then annuls one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever keeps and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven
These are the words of the messiah himself, not any one else. What does he say? I did not come to abolish the law but to fulfill the law. Heaven and earth will pass away before even one stroke (of the pen) shall pass from the law.
The son makes it very clear what about what law he is speaking. In verse 19 he says whoever tries to nullify even the least of these commandments shall be called least in the kingdom of Heaven. Whoever keeps and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
There are very important points here we should not miss. First, you must keep the commandments. Second, the law about which the messiah is speaking is the law of the 10 commandments. Third, you must teach keeping the commandments it is not enough just to keep them. A very important point you may want to note and study for yourself is that the kingdom of heaven is not called the kingdom in heaven an important distinction you should of which you should be aware.
The son Yahshua (his only name) is clearly telling those who read his words that the commandments of the father (Yahweh is his only name) are to be kept and taught by those who keep the will of the father. This can be confirmed with other scriptures.
Note: Even though the Bible scriptures used in this article retain the false names of the Father and the Son it is for instructional purposes only. The true names of the Father and Son and how they were changed can be found in the YNCA articles (How the Creators Name was Changed and Why We Care and The Mistaken J)
15 “If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.
21 “He who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me; and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will disclose Myself to him.”
The obvious point here is that anyone who claims to love the Son must keep the commandments. It is very important for you to understand that the Son will not disclose himself to those who do not keep the commandments. The father will also love those who keep his commandments, doing his will. Did you notice that the Son calls the commandments his commandments? These are the commandments of the Father and the Son. Yashua makes it very clear that if you do not keep the commandments, which belong to both the Father and the Son, you are not doing the will of the Father. You are not obedient to the Father and the Son. You will be told to depart from the Son on a very important day coming in the future for everyone. No one will escape that day. Everyone will be held accountable for their deeds. There will be no excuses.
1 John 2:4
4 The one who says, “I have come to know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him;
This should be simple enough to understand. Why then do people not keep the commandments of the father and the son?
9 And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.
Why will there be no excuse?
2 Tim 2:15
15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
Section two of Lawlessness.
Ministers of the various Christians religions today use the book of Galatians and the book of Romans to tell their listeners they are not under the law but are justified by faith. In Romans chapter 4 they use these writings by Paul to tell their followers that they are justified by faith alone.
2 For if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to boast about, but not before God.
3 For what does the Scripture say? “ABRAHAM BELIEVED GOD, AND IT WAS CREDITED TO HIM AS RIGHTEOUSNESS.”
4 Now to the one who works, his wage is not credited as a favor, but as what is due.
5 But to the one who does not work, but believes in Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is credited as righteousness,
9 Is this blessing then on the circumcised or on the uncircumcised also? For we say, “FAITH WAS CREDITED TO ABRAHAM AS RIGHTEOUSNESS.”
10 How then was it credited? While he was circumcised, or uncircumcised? Not while circumcised, but while uncircumcised;
Paul seems to be saying in verse 5 that if one does not do any work, but believes in him (messiah) then his faith is credited as righteousness. In verse 9 Paul says that faith was credited to Abraham as righteousness. In verse 10 Paul seems to say that faith was credited to Abraham while he was not yet circumcised. This verse is one key to understanding what Paul was saying to the Romans and to those who read the scriptures today.
These verses when read by themselves seem to contradict the verses we find throughout the New Testament that tell the reader that the law is necessary. In Matthew Yahshua himself says that those who practice lawlessness will be told to depart from him on a very important day in the future.
To better understand just what Paul is saying we must go back and look at just what the Abrahamic covenant covered. As in many cases ministers of Christian religions only use part of the bible to justify their erroneous teachings. These verses in Romans are a good example of why the serious student of the scriptures must use the entire bible to fully understand the message of salvation and instructions given us by Elohim.
Now when Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to Abram and said to him,
“I am God Almighty;
Walk before Me, and be blameless.
2 “I will establish My covenant between Me and you,
And I will multiply you exceedingly.”
3 Abram fell on his face, and God talked with him, saying,
4 “As for Me, behold, My covenant is with you,
And you will be the father of a multitude of nations.
5 “No longer shall your name be called Abram,
But your name shall be Abraham;
For I will make you the father of a multitude of nations.
6 “I will make you exceedingly fruitful, and I will make nations of you, and kings will come forth from you.
7 “I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you throughout their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and to your descendants after you.
8 “I will give to you and to your descendants after you, the land of your sojournings, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.”
9 God said further to Abraham, “Now as for you, you shall keep My covenant, you and your descendants after you throughout their generations.
10 “This is My covenant, which you shall keep, between Me and you and your descendants after you: every male among you shall be circumcised.
There are some very important points we need to understand from these scriptures. First, in verse 1 of chapter 17 what does Yahweh say to Abraham? Notice Yahweh tells Abraham to walk before me blameless. Yahweh clearly tells Abraham to be blameless before Yahweh. He did not say just believe in me and my son which is to come later and you will be righteous. He did not say just have faith in me and I will make a promise to you and your descendants. Abraham had to do some work as instructed by Yahweh before Yahweh would make a covenant with him. Abraham had to walk Blameless before Yahweh or there would be no covenant.
What was the covenant? Abraham was told that he would be the father of many physical human beings, he would be the father of many nations, kings would come forth from his descendants, and his descendants would be given the land of Caanan for an everlasting possession. As a sign of the agreement between Yahweh and Abraham he and all male descendants would be circumcised. Any male who was not circumcised was to be cut off from his people.
Read these verses as many times as you want. You will not find any promise of the kingdom of heaven in this promise to Abraham and his offspring. In fact, they were promised land, physical land not salvation. Paul rightly told the Roman assembly that Abraham had faith before he was circumcised which you have just read for yourself. Abraham had to do a work, walk blameless, and pass a test of faith, be willing to sacrifice his son, before Yahweh made his commitment to bless his descendants and mutilply them more than the stars and the sands which is on the seashore.
Many modern day ministers neglect to tell their listeners that Abraham knew and kept Yahweh’s commandments. In Genesis chapter 26 verse 5 Isaac was told that Abraham did keep his commandments.
“I will multiply your descendants as the stars of heaven, and will give your descendants all these lands; and by your descendants all the nations of the earth shall be blessed;
5 because Abraham obeyed Me and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes and My laws
At the time Paul was teaching the Gentiles Many Jews believed that salvation was of the Jew. Many believed that to be a Jew and to have salvation you must be physically circumcised. Paul told the Galatians that those who were teaching this false doctrine did not even keep the law themselves.
13 For those who are circumcised do not even keep the Law themselves, but they desire to have you circumcised so that they may boast in your flesh.
14 But may it never be that I would boast, except in the stakes of our sovereign Yahshua messiah, through which the world has been sacrificed to me, and I to the world.
15 For neither is circumcision anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creation.
3 And I testify again to every man who receives circumcision, that he is under obligation to keep the whole Law.
4 You have been severed from Messiaht, you who are seeking to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace.
5 For we through the Spirit, by faith, are waiting for the hope of righteousness.
6 For in messiah Yahshua neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything, but faith working through love.
Paul’s writings have been used in a confusing manner by ministers of Christianity; because they have failed to look at the entire bible in preaching their false doctrine. The Abrahamic covenant was physical but Jewish religious leaders had incorporated it into their oral laws and insisted it was necessary to be circumcised to be a Jew and therefore without circumcision salvation was not possible. Circumcision was not part of the Torah, it was added after the diaspora and the return to Jerusalem by Jewish leaders from Babylon.
Paul was telling his listeners and people today that circumcision and the laws added by Jewish leaders were not necessary for salvation, and that to keep these laws would distract them from the only way to salvation through the messiah. Paul did not say that the commandments had been nullified.
One more interesting note on circumcision, there are no scriptures that say the Abrahamic covenant has been canceled. It is still in effect today for a physical covenant for the physical descendants of Abraham. We should all remember that the covenant was for the descendants through Isaac, Jacob, and their descendants which became known largely as Israel. We can get a clue “who” these people are when we notice what nations still practice circumcision on their male children. Do you think it might be someone you know?
When Israel was led out of Egypt to Mount Sinai they were given the 10 commandments which they had forgotten while in Egypt. They were also given other laws on how to live their lives even the foods they could or could not eat. The Israelites said they would obey Yahweh’s laws. (Ex.24:3.) Yahweh made promises to Israel if they would keep his laws. The scriptures reveal that Israel broke this covenant with Yahweh and in fact broke the laws so badly that Yahweh divorced Israel. (Jer.3:8).
Israel was also given instructions on how to offer sacrifices to Yahweh for their sins, for trespass, and for peace. Have you ever wondered why the Romans destroyed the ritual of sacrifice of the Jews after the death of Yahshua and why the sacrifices have never been reinstituted? These laws are still in the Torah which the Jews claim to follow.
The Christians claim that animal sacrifice is no longer necessary and site verses in Hebrews to support this doctrine.
19 For when every commandment had been spoken by Moses to all the people according to the Law, he took the blood of the calves and the goats, with water and scarlet wool and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book itself and all the people,
20 saying, “THIS IS THE BLOOD OF THE COVENANT WHICH GOD COMMANDED YOU.”
21 And in the same way he sprinkled both the tabernacle and all the vessels of the ministry with the blood.
22 And according to the Law, one may almost say, all things are cleansed with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.
23 Therefore it was necessary for the copies of the things in the heavens to be cleansed with these, but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.
24 For Christ did not enter a holy place made with hands, a mere copy of the true one, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us;
25 nor was it that He would offer Himself often, as the high priest enters the holy place year by year with blood that is not his own.
26 Otherwise, He would have needed to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now once at the consummation of the ages He has been manifested to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself.
27 And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment,
28 so messiah also, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time for salvation without reference to sin, to those who eagerly await Him.
It appears clear that in these verses that the need for animal sacrifice is no longer necessary for sins. The sacrifice of Yahshua once is all that is needed for the cleansing of sin. This is one of the laws Paul told his listeners were no longer necessary. Paul also told us that we did not need a priest to intervene for us with the father.
Now the main point in what has been said is this: we have such a high priest, who has taken His seat at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens,
2 a minister in the sanctuary and in the true tabernacle, which Elohim pitched, not man.
3 For every high priest is appointed to offer both gifts and sacrifices; so it is necessary that this high priest also have something to offer.
4 Now if He were on earth, He would not be a priest at all, since there are those who offer the gifts according to the Law;
5 who serve a copy and shadow of the heavenly things, just as Moses was warned by Yahweh when he was about to erect the tabernacle; for, “SEE,” He says, “THAT YOU MAKE all things ACCORDING TO THE PATTERN WHICH WAS SHOWN YOU ON THE MOUNTAIN.”
6 But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, by as much as He is also the mediator of a better covenant, which has been enacted on better promises.
Here we learn that Yahshua is now the mediator of a better covenant which is enacted on a better promise. What is this better promise? Will Israel be able to participate even though they have been divorced by Yahweh? This is the part that has been very difficult for most people to understand. Israel will be able to participate in the kingdom of heaven, but not when Yahshua returns to establish his kingdom on earth.! This means all Israel the ones we can identify (Jews) and the lost 10 tribes which are scattered among the nations.
Yahweh still calls for Israel to repent of her ways and tells us just what he has in store for Israel’s future.
11 And Yahweh said to me, “Faithless Israel has proved herself more righteous than treacherous Judah.
12 “Go and proclaim these words toward the north and say,
‘Return, faithless Israel,’ declares Yahweh;
‘I will not look upon you in anger.
For I am gracious,’ declares Yahweh;
‘I will not be angry forever.
13’Only acknowledge your iniquity,
That you have transgressed against Yahweh your Elohim,
And have scattered your favors to the strangers under every green tree,
And you have not obeyed My voice,’ declares Yahweh.
14’Return, O faithless sons,’ declares Yahweh;
‘For I am a master to you,
And I will take you one from a city and two from a family,
And I will bring you to Zion.’
15 “Then I will give you shepherds after My own heart, who will feed you on knowledge and understanding.
16 “It shall be in those days when you are multiplied and increased in the land,” declares Yahweh, “they will no longer say, “The ark of the covenant of Yahweh.’ And it will not come to mind, nor will they remember it, nor will they miss it, nor will it be made again.
17 “At that time they will call Jerusalem “The Throne of Yahweh,’ and all the nations will be gathered to it, to Jerusalem, for the name of Yahweh; nor will they walk anymore after the stubbornness of their evil heart.
18 “In those days the house of Judah will walk with the house of Israel, and they will come together from the land of the north to the land that I gave your fathers as an inheritance.
Yahweh tells Israel to repent and to return to him, and if they will do so they will be joined together Judah and Israel and they won’t remember the ark of the old covenant nor will they miss it. Israel will in the future also have the new covenant which Christians think they have now. Christians think they have the new covenant and they would if they were obedient to the will of the father but, they are not! They do not keep the commandments of the father and the son. Because they do not keep the commandments they will also not be firstborn in the kingdom when Yahshua returns. They are deceived; they believe they will go to heaven when they die. That is not what the scriptures reveal.
Yahweh tells us in the book of Jeremiah that false shepherds have led Israel astray and scattered the flocks.
11 “For both prophet and priest are polluted;
Even in My house I have found their wickedness,” declares Yahweh.
12 “Therefore their way will be like slippery paths to them,
They will be driven away into the gloom and fall down in it;
For I will bring calamity upon them,
The year of their punishment,” declares Yahweh.
13 “Moreover, among the prophets of Samaria I saw an offensive thing:
They prophesied by Baal and led My people Israel astray.
14 “Also among the prophets of Jerusalem I have seen a horrible thing:
The committing of adultery and walking in falsehood;
And they strengthen the hands of evil
16 Thus says Yahweh of hosts,
“Do not listen to the words of the prophets who are prophesying to you.
They are leading you into futility;
They speak a vision of their own imagination,
Not from the mouth of Yahweh.
17 “They keep saying to those who despise Me,
‘Yahweh has said, “You will have peace”‘;
And as for everyone who walks in the stubbornness of his own heart,
Keep in mind that these verses are for both houses of Israel the one we can see and the one we cannot see, except we know they will practice circumcision even if they don’t know why.
There are two houses of Israel that were separated after the end of King Solomon’s reign. In 931 Jeroboam led the northern 10 tribes and Rehoboam was the king of Judah. The northern tribes were taken into captivity by King Shalmaneser V in 722. These tribes have never been heard of since this captivity except in writings by historians and scholars. The scriptures clearly tell us that these two houses will be joined together in the physical kingdom, here on earth, when the messiah sets up his new government. Both of the houses of Israel will be in the physical kingdom as physical beings just as Yahweh promised Abraham. They will be on the land of Caanan just as Yahweh promised. Most of Israel will not be in the spiritual kingdom in the New Jerusalem. That privilege will go to those who have been obedient to the father and have done the will of the father. They will have kept the commandments and will have known and used the true names of the father and son. We will know more about their purpose later in this study.
We know from the scriptures why both houses of Israel will not be in the spiritual kingdom when Yahshua returns and begins his rule. They have been hardened. We can clearly read this in both the Old and New Testament.
7 What then? What Israel is seeking, it has not obtained, but those who were chosen obtained it, and the rest were hardened;
8 just as it is written,
Elohim GAVE THEM A SPIRIT OF STUPOR,
EYES TO SEE NOT AND EARS TO HEAR NOT,
DOWN TO THIS VERY DAY.”
9 And David says,
“LET THEIR TABLE BECOME A SNARE AND A TRAP,
AND A STUMBLING BLOCK AND A RETRIBUTION TO THEM.
10 “LET THEIR EYES BE DARKENED TO SEE NOT,
AND BEND THEIR BACKS FOREVER.”
11 I say then, they did not stumble so as to fall, did they? May it never be! But by their transgression salvation has come to the Gentiles, to make them jealous.
By their transgression salvation is available to the gentile. Israel brought this upon themselves. If they would have kept their promises to Yahweh they would have had an opportunity to be firstborn in the Kingdom. They could have been made a nation of priest. They failed. This does not mean they will never be in the spiritual Kingdom!
9 Be stunned and amazed,
blind yourselves and be sightless;
be drunk, but not from wine,
stagger, but not from beer.
10 Yahweh has brought over you a deep sleep:
He has sealed your eyes (the prophets);
he has covered your heads (the seers).
11 For you this whole vision is nothing but words sealed in a scroll. And if you give the scroll to someone who can read, and say to him, “Read this, please,” he will answer, “I can’t; it is sealed.
If you turn back to Isaiah 29 and read the whole chapter you should see the time period in which Israel will be hardened. Their chance to have the commandments written in their hearts and minds will come after the tribulation.
25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.
26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away unrighteousness from Jacob:
There are many scriptures that deal with this subject; you can use your study bible to review them for yourself. But note in verse 25 above that the blindness is in part. A small number of Israel will accept what they read in the scriptures and will be firstborn in the kingdom of heaven that is coming. Also note that when the deliverer comes out of Sion, or better Zion, then and only then will all Israel have a chance at salvation.
Note: Note: The Israelites are scattered among the nations because they disobeyed Yahweh and did not keep his commands and still don’t to this day. Of great significance is the identity of those scattered Israelites, who have the name of Isaac (Anglo Saxons) who have the blessings of Josephs sons Ephraim and Manasseh (a colony of nations, Great Britain, and a strong nation, America), that have the blessing of Rebekah ,( control of the gates of their enemies, air, sea and land) and have the most circumcised males, even though they don’t know why.
YNCA is speaking to those who will be obedient to the will of the father today. The ones who will overcome to the end, the ones who will have the holy spirit and the names and commandments written in their hearts and minds, the saints, the firstborn, and the holy ones, the called out ones.
This message is for those who are Jews, the 10 tribes of Israel, and the gentile. People from all of these groups now have a chance for salvation an opportunity to serve in the New Jerusalem. What will these beings do when they reside in the New Jerusalem? Remember when we read verses in Jeremiah chapter 3 when Yahweh divorced faithless Israel because of the adulterous acts Israel committed with material goods. In verse 14 Yahweh says that he will partially bring some of Israel to Zion. In verse 15 he says he will give them shepherds, after his own heart, who will feed people with knowledge and understanding.
These shepherds we have discussed before. We can read about them in both the Old and New Testament. They are the firstborn, firstfruits, the holy ones, the saints, the ones who obey the will of the father. They keep the law of the commandments; they will not be told to depart from Yahshua when he returns. They will help him run his kingdom. They will be spirit beings that will teach physical beings in the physical kingdom on earth. These physical beings will be given a chance to understand the will of the Elohim and to accept the messiah as their door to salvation.
If you sincerely want to obey the father and the son you must understand the true plan of salvation that Elohim has for the world. It is not what you hear from religious leaders. You will not be in the kingdom if you follow these men and their false stories. You will sure be surprised when Yahshua says to you depart from me you who practice lawlessness.
7 “‘I will make known my holy name among my people Israel. I will no longer let my holy name be profaned, and the nations will know that I the Lord am the Holy One in Israel. 8 It is coming! It will surely take place, declares the Sovereign Lord. This is the day I have spoken of.
You will be sadly surprised when Yahshua says to you depart from me you who did not keep my commandments and did not give honor to my holy name.
