I cannot contain my excitement over the coming end of the world. Soon, like “wow that was fast” soon, the third temple will be in full operation, the seas will be mega-pools of dead plant and animal life, families will be ripping themselves apart over Christ/Anti-Christ loyalties and the stack of human bodies dead from a multitude of means will be stacked to the moon.
Those days will be the worst in human history, for sure, and nothing to celebrate. But these obvious end-time events are, though horrible, something to be excited about. We have no fear of physical death, and look forward to going home. But before we go, let’s do everything we can to honor Yahuah and help the lost to see the Truth.
When Yahuah moves, He MOVES, doesn’t He?
That’s something that I adore about my Father. He is a God of action. He makes things happen, and brothers and sisters, do you really think that when we ascend to Him that we will be all floatie floatie with harps and wee cherubic wings?
He’s got a lot going on, and we are not the beginning and end, folks. Sure, we are called His Masterpiece in at least one translation, but Yahuah has been open for business for a long, long time. He will continue to do business His way for eternity. Eternity. Our lives outside of this carbon-based human-physical skin suit will be …, well, imagine the Avengers and you get to pick your character. A transformation of that magnitude, but more. Yes, the scriptures are relatively clear about our future on earth for 1000 years, but that time will pass like a birthday party when Yahusha rules here. Time will be meaningless and no one will count the days.
Then the 1000 years will end for those who are here, and guess what? Yeah, new heaven and new earth. Which heaven, I wonder? Maybe the heaven we consider the night sky? So a new night sky implies new celestial objects, and a new earth is, I suppose, a new earth as opposed to a different type of earth.
And then Adam? A New Abraham? A new crucifixion of the same Yahusha? “I lay down my life only to take it up again.” “Greater love has no man than this: that he lay down his life for his friends.”
Do you think Yahusha would ever turn down that opportunity to serve His Father?
“It is appointed to man once to die, and after that the judgement”. Men die physical deaths. One man – one death.
John 10-16 “I have other sheep that are not of this fold. I must bring them in as well, and they will listen to My voice. Then there will be one flock and one shepherd. 17-The reason the Father loves Me is that I lay down My life in order to take it up again. 18-No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of My own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This charge I have received from My Father.”…
“Sheep not of this fold…” Are you going to say that He references the gentiles? Why then would He use the word “fold”? The word “fold” does not mean race, such as Hebrew or Caanite or Hittite or German/Anglo Saxon or Chinese. (smiling here).
“Fold” means container. Container. He has sheep in a different container. Not of “this container”.
Tell me, brave believer, whatever does He mean? (In accent of Doc Holiday (Val Kilmer) in movie ‘Tombstone’ when he asks the villain Ike “Why Ike, whatever do you mean?”
He means not of the only container we have ever known – earth. This planet and the 1st and 2nd heavens above it. Our “container”. He has sheep elsewhere and he will lay down His life over and over for all of them, picking His life up again until He is finished. And guess what? It will probably never end, because Yahuah loves creating and Yahusha loves serving His Father. Yahusha knows how valuable salvation is to us, and how deeply loved He is by Yahuah for sacrificing Himself purely to serve His Father. Not that Yahuah loves watching Yahusha suffer, He hates that. But the blood of perfection is the only thing that can be offered for us, and Yahusha is the only one who can offer it.
Not the angels, none of them. And Yahuah must reside upon His throne. He is the I AM, He is who He is and cannot be sacrificed for any reason. Therefore Yahusha, who is one with Yahuah, is the lamb.
The Greater rules from His throne in Heaven. The lesser, perfect in every way, dies again and again, able to pick up His life each time because He is given authority to do so. Note that Yahusha does not say that He does this on His own, but that He was charged to do this “by my Father”.
John 14:28 – “…I am going to the Father, for my Father is greater than I.” (Read Torah Notes – The Truth)
Yahusha died in this world for you and for me. Yahuah made salvation a very simple thing to accomplish – as simple as stepping over a painted stripe on the floor. Easy to do. And because Yahusha died for our disobedience to the commands of Yahuah, our “sin”, then there is no possibility of any sin keeping you from salvation. All sin was died for, the blood of Yahusha was spilled for every sin in the history of mankind. So the debt is paid, but will you accept the offer?
