Many who read the scriptures have a legitimate question concerning the death of the Messiah. The most common line of reasoning behind this question is; if the Messiah was the Son of the Father and was a spirit being, like the father, why did the Son have to become a human and die for the sins of mankind? Why did the Son go through the process of being born a human, grow from childhood, learn the scriptures, teach the scriptures to apostles, perform miracles, suffer humiliating pain and finally suffer a horrible death?
The Messiah Yahshua knew he had the power from his father not to be tempted and humiliated by men who were intent on killing him because he threatened their power and way of life.
Note: In this study, the correct names of the Father and the Son will be placed in the text except copied scriptures where the changed names will remain as they are printed in the English Bible version. For more information on how the names of the Father and Son were changed by man see YNCA’s articles “How the Creators Name was changed and why we should care” and “The Mistaken J”.
The Apostle Matthew recorded that when the Messiah was about to be arrested by large crowd of armed men with clubs and swords; this group was actually sent by the chief priests and elders of the Jewish people, for the purpose of arresting the Messiah. When the group took hold of the Messiah one of his followers drew his sword and struck a servant of the high priests, cutting off his ear.
52″Put your sword back in its place,” Jesus said to him, “for all who draw the sword will die by the sword. 53 Do you think I cannot call on my Father, and he will at once put at my disposal more than twelve legions of angels? 54 But how then would the Scriptures be fulfilled that say it must happen in this way?”
Yahshua tells his disciples to put their swords away and not to try and protect him because his death is foretold in the scriptures and he wants the scriptures to be fulfilled by his death; The scriptures foretell of the Messiahs death in the Old Testament.
10Yet it was the Lord’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer,
and though the Lord makes his life a guilt offering,
he will see his offspring and prolong his days,
and the will of the Lord will prosper in his hand.
11After the suffering of his soul,
he will see the light [of life] and be satisfied;
by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many,
and he will bear their iniquities.
12Therefore I will give him a portion among the great,
and he will divide the spoils with the strong,
because he poured out his life unto death,
and was numbered with the transgressors.
For he bore the sin of many,
and made intercession for the transgressors.
To understand why Yahshua was predestined to die, as a human, we need to understand why Yahweh made man at all. Are men merely creatures made as an experiment to see what they would do with their lives? Are men created to do some kind of work on earth as predestined slaves of labor? Why would Yahweh go the trouble of creating beings that he knew even before they were created would disobey him?
Yahweh created mankind so that he would have a family! What is the purpose of creating a massive universe or universes if they are not to be shared and enjoyed by beings that can appreciate their existence? There is a least one huge multifaceted complex universe that man now knows exist, even though man cannot comprehend its complexity, expanses or purpose. Man cannot enjoy the creation of the universe except to marvel at its vastness except for one small planet to which man is confined called earth. The scriptures reveal Elohim’s plan for a family of beings that would be like his Son Yahshua. A son who was given power over all creation provided he qualified as an obedient family member and did the will or the Father.
The father could create and has created many spirit beings. According to scriptures there are legions of angels that exist and serve the Father. Angels are spirit beings and apparently cannot die, but they can sin. Satan is the primary example, in scripture, of an angel who had enough pride to try and exalt himself to a position of power over Yahweh. Satan was able to enlist other angels to assist him in this power grab which resulted in a complex plan to expand his family, but he will not include anyone who is rebellious, defiant and disobedient.
Yahweh made an agreement with an obedient spirit being who became known as his son Yahshua. He was to be the being to establish, train, and deliver obedient family members created from human race, who could die if they were not qualified to become members of the family of Yahweh. Humans were made to become part of Yahweh’s family and to enjoy his creation if they were willing to live by the rules established by Yahweh. Humans, unlike immortal spirit beings, could cease to exist. It was Yahweh’s plan to allow humans to become immortal beings to enjoy his vast creation if obedient to his rules or, if disobedient, would die as humans never to exist again.
Rom 8:28-30 28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. 29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. 30 And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.
he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will
The apostles, who had their minds opened to these understandings by the Messiah himself knew Yahweh was expanding his family and that family would by headed by the Messiah Yahshua. This family planning by Yahweh had been a mystery which mankind could not understand until the plan was revealed to those being groomed to become members of Yahweh’s family.
45 Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures. 46 He told them, “This is what is written: The Christ will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, 47 and repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem
10 When he was alone, the Twelve and the others around him asked him about the parables. 11 He told them, “The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables 12 so that, “‘they may be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding; otherwise they might turn and be forgiven!'”
The scriptures clearly reveal that the Messiah taught that not everyone is to be given knowledge about the mystery of the Kingdom of Elohim and not everyone is going to be forgiven. These scriptures seem to be in direct conflict with the popular religious teachings that all who believe can now be saved by just believing in the Messiah. For more information on who will be in the family of Yahweh, read the YNCA’s articles on the First Fruits and “The New Covenant”.
Yahshua; the word or logos the Greek word depicting the spirit being who was selected by Yahweh the Father to be the master over all physical creation of the earth. It was to provide entry into the Kingdom of Heaven by allowing some of mankind to inherit entrance, by his physical death into that kingdom and thus the family of Elohim.
The choice remains in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been born of God. 10This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not a child of God; nor is anyone who does not love his brother.
It was the plan of the Father and Son that the son Yahshua would come to the earth as a physical being to help humans overcome their weaknesses and the deceptions of Satan; thus, allowing humans to focus on the rules of righteousness of Yahweh. Rules they must understand and agree to live by in order to be able to inherit eternal life in the Kingdom of Elohim.
he will be My son. 8″But for the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
For some there will be an inheritance and according to scriptures that inheritance is entrance into the family of Yahweh. Those who overcome the sins manifested in the world by keeping the commandments and following the example of Yahshua will be called Saints.
Here is the perseverance of the saints who keep the commandments of God and their faith in Jesus.
An inheritance implies that there must be a death. Without a death of the one giving the inheritance there is no need to pass on the good or goods that pass from a grantor of the inheritance to those who inherit those goods. Entry into the Kingdom of Heaven and the family of Yahweh through an inheritance is only part of why the Messiah had to become a human and physically die.
No other spiritual being, according to scriptures, has ever been human. Spiritual beings cannot die and therefore no spiritual being could pass on the inheritance into the Kingdom of Heaven and Elohim’s’ family, except the one who was picked by the Father and agreed to become a human. The scriptures tell us why it was necessary for the Messiah to become human in addition to passing on his inheritance to mankind.
14 Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death — that is, the devil— 15 and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death. 16 For surely it is not angels he helps, but Abraham’s descendants. 17 For this reason he had to be made like his brothers in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people. 18 Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.
14Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. 15For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin. 16Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
Yahweh and his Son, who was to become Yahshua, made an agreement or covenant that was unique to them. Yahweh, the Father, agreed to put all things under subjugation to the son who was willing to subject himself to torture, suffering, humiliation, pain and death as a human. Their purpose was to expand their family by Yahshua becoming the elder brother of humans who were willing to overcome the sinful temptations of world and to follow the commands of Elohim to have faith in Yahshua and to follow his example of selflessness while a human on earth. The people who would suffer at the hands of mankind for the name sake of Yahweh would learn to be humble and giving to others as an example of a follower of the Messiah.
People who were worldly wise arrogant and prideful people would not qualify to be in Yahweh’s family, because they would not be willing to give up their material goods and power to follow the giving example of Yahshua.
5Everyone who is proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord; Assuredly, he will not be unpunished.
People who will not give of their time to learn the plan of salvation of Elohim cannot qualify as spirit beings in the Kingdom of Heaven. To qualify for entrance into the Kingdom of Heaven, people must be willing to learn the traits necessary for entrance into the Kingdom and must be willing to assist others in learning the requirements for entrance into the Kingdom of Heaven.
The Father and Son have set up a marvelous plan to allow humans to live loving lives eternally and to be members of their family. Entrance is not automatic and requires a life style different from that lived by most of mankind.
People must be willing to sacrifice of their time, money, family and possessions if they wish to qualify for family life in the kingdom of heaven.
“And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or farms for My name’s sake, will receive many times as much, and will inherit eternal life. “But many who are first will be last; and the last, first.
For more information on the Covenants of Yahweh please see the YNCA’s article on the “Old and New Covenants”.
To conceptualize the death of the Messiah and to reveal the mystery of the Kingdom of Heaven, we must understand Elohim has a master plan that was in place before the world was created. Elohim has created a large wondrous universe. Physical men, as humans, will never be able to visit because their lifetimes are too short and the environment too harsh for survival of frail oxygen breathing creatures to exist.
Beings do exist in the environment of the universe; they can exist because they do not die and they do not need oxygen and moderate temperatures in which to exist. The Father of all creation who proclaims, in his scriptures given to mankind as a book of instructions, whose name is Yahweh, decided before the world was created he wanted to have a family that could enjoy his creation of the vast universe.
Yahweh knew that the spirit beings called angels, in scriptures, could sin and cause problems for other spirit beings and as such could not always be trust worthy.
7And there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. 8But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. 9The great dragon was hurled down — that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.
Satan was allowed to come to physical earth to deceive mankind, who was also created by Yahweh, but with a finite physical life which would physically end. Yahweh designed physical beings, from the materials of the earth, and gave them intelligence and the ability to make decisions for themselves.
Yahweh planned to make his family members from mankind, but only those who made a conscious decision to be obedient to the rules of Yahweh would be eligible to become a member of his family. Yahweh knew humans were weak and could be easily deceived by Satan, so He decided to use his Son to prepare humans to become viable members in the family of Yahweh.
Yahweh’s son, whose name was revealed in scriptures, Yahshua; which means Yahweh is salvation, was obedient and because of his obedience Yahweh gave his son rule over mankind and the job of selecting those humans who would qualify to become members of the family of Yahweh.
Both the Father and Son collectively called Elohim, in the scriptures, meaning mighty one’s plural and mighty one singularly, knew humans would not by themselves be able to withstand the corruptive influence of Satan and his helpers. Humans would not be able to overcome their weaknesses stemming from their physicality and consequent inherent self-interest.
Yahweh’s plan was to allow humans to be subject to the temptations of Satan and the physical world so that humans would learn the difference between self-interest and the way into the family of Yahweh, which are given in scriptures as righteous acts. Yahweh, of course, made certain rules that humans would have to learn and follow in order to become members of his family. Those rules were designed to help humans to focus on becoming family members of Yahweh by not forgetting who their creator was and to learn behavior worthy of a member of the Yahweh family. Behavior designed to have humans treat other humans with respect and brotherly love.
Elohim created a beautiful world in which humans would live and have dominion over that world and the animals placed there that would help men work the fields and serve as a source of sustenance. Yahweh knew however, that humans would fail to keep his rules of righteous behavior because of their physical nature along with the deceptions of Satan and those humans would need his divine help to become members in his family.
1 John 3:8-10
8 He who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work. 9 No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been born of God. 10 This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not a child of God; nor is anyone who does not love his brother.
Why must the Son become human? Since no spirit being had been human it was necessary for Yahshua to understand just how temptation and weakness felt. Also, how could Elohim expect humans to believe they could become members of Yahweh’s family if they did not have an example of just how overcoming was done? Mankind needed an example of behavior of how to be righteous and the Messiah Son of Yahweh was to provide that example.
Most important; Yahweh and Yahshua wanted to demonstrate their fervent desire for humans to become family members and to share in their universal creation. There was no better method than the Father being willing for his Son to die for the sins of humans, demonstrating their strong commitment to their plan.
By willingly becoming a weak human and giving up his spirit life, the Son would not only demonstrate his love for humans but also would know their human weaknesses and by his unselfish act of sacrifice qualify to become the overseer or priest over humans, enabling humans to build their relationship with the Father. The Son would know which humans were willing to follow the righteous rules established by the Father to allow humans to become members of his family.
The Father and Son had an agreement (a covenant), which would allow humans to become spirit family members of Yahweh. Humans would be changed from weak physical beings into Spirit beings with eternal life; provided they followed Yahweh’s rules and the example of Yahshua in how to live righteous physical lives. Yahshua would come to earth as a weak human, receive the spirit of the father as a human, set an example of righteous living for humans and die for their sins; so, they would understand his and the Fathers love for them.
Something very important was made possible by the death of the Son; that his death also allowed him to make a covenant or agreement with humans. That agreement allowed their entrance into the Kingdom of Heaven. Yahshua would know by their actions, including repentance, which humans would be allowed to become his family members. He would leave those who repented and overcame their weaknesses an inheritance which would be entrance into the Kingdom of Heaven. Only those humans led to the Father by the actions of the son could receive an inheritance provided them by the physical death of Yahshua.
Yahshua also had to die, after he became human, so that he could be glorified by the Father and return to the Kingdom as a spirit being with eternal life; because flesh and blood physical beings cannot live in the Kingdom of Heaven.
1 Cor 15:50
I declare to you, brothers, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable.
The Son made a covenant with humans that would allow humans to inherit eternal imperishable life. Humans could become like the Son of Yahweh live as a family member, along with Yahshua, in the kingdom of Elohim in a glorified body of Spirit that would never become sick or die. This New Covenant was not like the Covenant that was made between Elohim and Israel. The Covenant between Yahweh and Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob was a physical covenant that had a physical sign, the circumcision of Israelite males, which is still done to this very day in the nations where the Israelites have been scattered and now live, unaware of their ancestry. The descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob will receive the land in the area called the Middle East as described in the books of prophecy Isaiah and Jeremiah provided they repent of their sins and change their lives to obey Yahweh’s laws as their forefathers promised.
7 “So then, the days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when people will no longer say, ‘As surely as the Lord lives, who brought the Israelites up out of Egypt,’ 8 but they will say, ‘As surely as the Lord lives, who brought the descendants of Israel up out of the land of the north and out of all the countries where he had banished them.’ Then they will live in their own land.”
11Then it will happen on that day that the Lord Will again recover the second time with His Hand The remnant of His people, who will remain, From Assyria, Egypt, Pathros, Cush, Elam, Shinar, Hamath, And from the islands of the sea. 12And He will lift up a standard for the nations and assemble the banished ones of Israel, And will gather the dispersed of Judah From the four corners of the earth.
Yahweh is clear, so no one can misunderstand, he will gather the remnant of his people for the second time and this time he will gather them from all the countries where he has driven them, not from Egypt alone. There can be no mistake that, in these verses, Yahweh is talking not about retrieving Israel from bondage in Egypt. This is a prophecy that Yahweh will recover or gather Israel from all the nations where they now reside and will place them on land Yahweh to call their own.
This remnant of Israel will be physical humans, who for the most part don’t realize they are descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. These people will not receive eternal life at this time because they have not kept Yahweh’s commands, have worshipped idols and profaned the Father’s holy name.
39 “‘As for you, O house of Israel, this is what the Sovereign Lord says: Go and serve your idols, every one of you! But afterward you will surely listen to me and no longer profane my holy name with your gifts and idols. 40 For on my holy mountain, the high mountain of Israel, declares the Sovereign Lord, there in the land the entire house of Israel will serve me, and there I will accept them. There I will require your offerings and your choice gifts, along with all your holy sacrifices. 41 I will accept you as fragrant incense when I bring you out from the nations and gather you from the countries where you have been scattered, and I will show myself holy among you in the sight of the nations. 42 Then you will know that I am the Lord, when I bring you into the land of Israel, the land I had sworn with uplifted hand to give to your fathers. 43 There you will remember your conduct and all the actions by which you have defiled yourselves, and you will loathe yourselves for all the evil you have done. 44 You will know that I am the Lord, when I deal with you for my name’s sake and not according to your evil ways and your corrupt practices, O house of Israel, declares the Sovereign Lord.'”
The Israelites will receive land that which was promised to their forefathers. The Israelites will be gathered from the four corners of the earth, this is a future event. The Israelites will learn they have broken the commandments of Yahweh, they have profaned his Holy Name and they will be ashamed of their sins against Yahweh.
The Israelites live among the nations of the world today and live evil and corrupt lives in the eyes of Yahweh. They don’t know their heritage or their future, even though Elohim has provided it for them to read in the scriptures. He has made his plans easy for them to obtain in the form of the widely-distributed book called the Bible.
In Ezekiel chapter 20 verse 40, above Yahweh clearly declares that the whole House of Israel, all Twelve tribes, will be gathered from the four corners of the world and put on the land promised their forefathers. Some people mistakenly believe that the single visible tribe of Judah is all that remains of Israel, but the scriptures reveal that all twelve tribes are included in Yahweh’s plans. When Yahweh executes the time of gathering Israel and placing them in their promised land there will be many people surprised to learn they are Israelites and have lived lives filled with unrighteous sinful acts by ignoring the commands of Elohim and profaning the name of Yahweh.
Yahweh’s plan to build his family is complex and multi- facetted, each part is designed to achieve his end result and people will be awed when they begin to understand what has been placed before them, only to be ignored. Verses 39-44 in the book of Ezekiel chapter 20 reveals a great deal about the past and future of Israel and just why Yahweh has allowed the Israelites to live lives filled with sin and unrighteous acts in his eyes.
In verse 39 0f Ezekiel chapter 20 Yahweh reveals that he has allowed Israel to serve idols, but that Israel will listen to him later and he will no longer allow Israel to profane his holy name. In verses 40, Yahweh explains that the whole House of Israel will serve Yahweh in the future and worship him giving him gifts and by bringing Israel out of the nations, where they have been residing.
Yahweh will prove himself to all the nations by keeping his promise to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. In verses 42 and 43 Yahweh predicts that Israel will learn Yahweh is their Elohim and they will remember their unrighteous acts and they will loath themselves. In verse 44 Yahweh explains why he has allowed Israel to stray and sin. Yahweh wants to prove to all mankind that his word and promises are reliable, his acts are righteous and his character is just, honorable and reliable. Yahweh tells the world in writing that he has kept his promises to Israel’s forefathers even though their descendants broke their promises to him. Yahweh kept his word because he wanted all mankind to know that his word is true, when his makes a promise it’s kept and that his name is holy and honorable.
Yahweh’s plan to increase the size of his family through the perfection of humans is exemplified in the scriptures with the example of the tribes of Israel. Israel was chosen by Yahweh for several reasons explained in the scriptures. Israel had not yet become a nation when the scriptures reveal that Yahweh made a covenant with Abraham, who was Israel’s ancestor.
Abraham was the man Yahweh promised would be the progenitor of many nations.
3 Abram fell facedown, and God said to him, 4 “As for me, this is my covenant with you: You will be the father of many nations. 5 No longer will you be called Abram; your name will be Abraham, for I have made you a father of many nations. 6 I will make you very fruitful; I will make nations of you, and kings will come from you.
Abram whose name was changed by Yahweh to Abraham, (ABRAHAM)
(Heb. Abraham HEBREW, father of a multitude; from McClintock and Strong Encyclopedia) was a descendant of Shem one of the sons of Noah. Abraham, like Noah, was chosen by Yahweh for special treatment because he was obedient to Yahweh and righteous in the view of Yahweh.
Yahweh made a covenant with Abraham that promised the land of Canaan to certain descendants of Abraham. Those descendants were not all of Abraham’s descendants, but only the descendants of Isaac the son of Sarah, also a descendant of Shem.
19 Then God said, “Yes, but your wife Sarah will bear you a son, and you will call him Isaac. I will establish my covenant with him as an everlasting covenant for his descendants after him.
Isaac married Rebecca and had two sons the oldest Esau and his younger brother Jacob. Esau, being the eldest son was entitled to inherit the possessions of Isaac, but traded his birth right in a time of weakness to his younger brother Jacob, for a portion of food. Esau was the progenitor of the nation of Edom, which became an enemy of Jacob’s descendants hundreds of years later.
Jacob’s name was changed to Israel by Yahweh:
He said, “Your name shall no longer be Jacob, but Israel; for you have striven with God and with men and have prevailed.”
The name Israel is of Hebrew origin and means to strive or contend with Elohim. The descendants of Jacob became known as the nation of Israel comprised of the descendants of the twelve sons of Jacob through four different women (Genesis chapters 29&30). Jacob’s descendants were also promised to be the receivers of the covenant given through Abraham and Isaac.
9 Then God appeared to Jacob again when he came from Paddan-aram, and He blessed him. 10 God said to him, “Your name is Jacob; You shall no longer be called Jacob, But Israel shall be your name.” Thus, He called him Israel. 11 God also said to him, “I am God Almighty; Be fruitful and multiply; A nation and a company of nations shall come from you, and kings shall come forth from you. 12 ” The land which I gave to Abraham and Isaac, I will give it to you, And I will give the land to your descendants after you.”
The physical land of Canaan, which was promised to descendants of Abraham, was promised by Yahweh to the descendants of Jacob whose name was changed to Israel, who became known in the scriptures as the Nation of Israel, its members Israelites. Something very important that aids in the identification of the descendants of Abraham, who receive the promise of the covenant providing lands is a physical mark on these descendants.
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. 11 “And you shall be circumcised in the flesh of your foreskin, and it shall be the sign of the covenant between Me and you. 12 “And every male among you who is eight days old shall be circumcised throughout your generations, a servant who is born in the house or who is bought with money from any foreigner, who is not of your descendants. 13 “A servant who is born in your house or who is bought with your money shall surely be circumcised; thus, shall My covenant be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant. 14 “But an uncircumcised male who is not circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin, that person shall be cut off from his people; he has broken My covenant.”
In the modern world of advanced medicine, the act of circumcision has been questioned by many and has been deemed by some to have no medical benefit. Yet, millions of newly born males have been circumcised over the centuries and are still circumcised today. If you ask the doctors and the parents why they have their sons circumcised most will not have an explanation, however some parents still want their sons circumcised, even though they don’t know why.
It is important to note that circumcision of newborn males is prevalent in only certain countries. It is also important to note that the many of the countries that practice circumcision have their national laws based on the laws that are written in the scriptures originally in the Hebrew language. Some of the nations that practice circumcision are also the wealthiest and militarily mighty in the world.
The scriptures reveal that the Son of Yahweh, named Yahshua, was sent to earth to be an example for men to observe and emulate his righteous acts to know how to live their lives to become a member of Yahweh’s family.
Yahshua was also to suffer and die for the sins of mankind offering him as a sacrifice, shedding his human blood, to bear the sins of men. Through his unselfish act of dying Yahshua established a New Covenant that allowed certain repentant people, who willingly follow or followed Yahshua’s example, to become eligible to enter the Kingdom of
Yahweh and become members in the family of Yahweh.
The descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, through the Old Covenant, were Promised Land known as Canaan in the scriptures. These same descendants were not promised entrance into the kingdom of Yahweh under the Old Covenant. The scriptures tell who will inherit the Kingdom of Heaven and what behavior they must keep in order to inherit that Kingdom. Sadly, many, who call themselves Christian, believe they will inherit the kingdom of Heaven will find they have been deceived with false religion and will learn too late they do not qualify to enter that Kingdom when the Messiah calls his own to join him in the Kingdom. There will also be those who actually use the correct name of the Father and Son who will also not enter the Kingdom of Heaven.
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.’
Many have been taught that by using the correct name of the Father and Son, a commandment, provides a path into the Kingdom. The words of the Son clearly tell that all who practice lawlessness will be told to depart from Yahshua and will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Many people, who consider themselves religious, have been taught and believe they are not under the laws established by Yahweh and do not have to heed these laws. They have been deceived and will learn they will not be in the Kingdom. Some even believe because they have been baptized in the false name of the messiah they will go to heaven immediately upon their physical death. The scriptures do not depict such a scenario.
The scriptures reveal, with serious study, that the Old Covenant made between Yahweh and Abraham and Abraham’s son Isaac and Isaac’s son Jacob, whose name was changed to Israel and passed to Israel’s twelve sons, who became the twelve tribes of Israel was a physical covenant. The descendants of the tribes of Israel will receive land when the world is violently disrupted by cataclysmic events that occur when the fourth beast government envisioned by Daniel is in power on earth.
“Thus, he said: ‘The fourth beast will be a fourth kingdom on the earth, which will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth and tread it down and crush it.
In the book of Daniel, the fourth beast is described as a confederation of kingdoms or nations that have among them a unique kingdom that wages war with the saints of Elohim and wears them down. On the beast head, there were ten horns signifying these kingdoms. One of these horns magnifies itself above the other horns and makes great boasts. This horn (kingdom) will make alterations in the times and the laws and will speak out against Yahweh. For more information on this beast read YNCA’s article” The Mark of the Beast”.
It is during the time when the fourth beast government is in power that Yahshua will return to earth and establish Yahweh’s government that will rule over the entire earth. The fourth beast government and the kingdom that boast against Yahweh and overpowers his saints will be destroyed.
There will be tremendous destruction that will occur at this time as Yahweh punishes the people who inhabit the earth for their stiff-necked disobedience to his rules and their rejection of his son’s death on their behalf.
5 The earth is defiled by its people; they have disobeyed the laws, violated the statutes
and broken the everlasting covenant. 6 Therefore a curse consumes the earth;
its people must bear their guilt. Therefore earth’s inhabitants are burned up,
and very few are left.
Because men have violated the statues and disobeyed the laws of Yahweh and broken the everlasting covenant they have brought a curse upon the earth. Yahweh proclaims in writing that the people of the earth will be held accountable for their law-breaking violations. People will be burned up and many will die; only a few will remain on the earth after Yahweh brings his punishment to the inhabitants of the world. The scriptures reveal several interesting things happen when Yahweh punishes the people of earth. Different fates occur for diverse groups.
One group of people will however, will not suffer punishment when Yahshua returns to establish his Kingdom on earth. That group will be comprised of First-Fruits which will have obeyed Elohim and have not been deceived by Satan and his false prophets, religious leaders and theologians.
The people who comprise this group are call First-Fruits in the scriptures and will rule with Yahshua in his kingdom. Read YNCA’s article” First-Fruits Most Important people Ever”
