Who will be in the Kingdom of MASHIYACH
The most politically incorrect person who ever walked the face of the earth is Mashiyach, who said:
Not every one that says unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Therefore whosoever hears these sayings of mine, and does them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that hears these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. And it came to pass, when Yeshua had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
He that does the will of my Father which is in Heaven, refers to those who do the will of YHWH Elohim. What is the will of Yahweh? It is Torah, which is His Word! Torah means “instruction in Righteousness”, it is the Covenant, Will and Revelation of the Attributes of YHWH that is for all people, but not all Torah applies to everyone. Some is for Priests, Levites and for Temple service but whosoever desired to enter into the Kingdom of Heaven, must surrender their own will and do the Will of YHWH, not just theorize about what this might be.
“Therefore shall you keep my commandments, and do them: I am YHWH.
Neither shall ye profane my holy name; but I will be hallowed among the children
of Israel: am YHWH which hallow you, That brought you out of the land of Egypt,
to be your G-d: I am YHWH.”
Mashiyach (Messiah) Yeshua says that whosoever hears these sayings of mine, and does them. Mashiyach is the Word of YHWH who spoke these words to Moshe:
“Hear, O Israel: YHWH our Elohim is one YHWH: And you shall love YHWH thy Elohim with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command you this day, shall be in your heart: And you shall teach them diligently unto your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise up. And you shall bind them for a sign upon your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. And you shall write them upon the posts of your house, and on your gates. And it shall be, when YHWH thy Elohim shall have brought you into the land which he swore unto your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give you great and goodly cities, which you did not build, And houses full of all good things, which you did not fill, and wells dug, which you did not dig, vineyards and olive trees, which you did not plant; when you shall have eaten and be full; Then beware lest you forget YHWH, which brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage. You shall fear YHWH your Elohim, and serve him, and shall swear by his name. You shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people which are round about you; For YHWH thy Elohim is a jealous Elohim among you lest the anger of YHWH thy Elohim be kindled against you, and destroy you from off the face of the earth.” Deuteronomy 6:4-20
Many people have been led to think Torah is impossible to keep, because there is no Temple, or because it contains such a high standard that it cannot be met by anyone. Some even teach that it is bondage to try to observe Torah. The Good News is that Torah is neither impossible to keep, nor a burden to the spiritual man. The Work of the Ruach HaKodesh is to write Torah upon our hearts, it is our joy and heritage to observe every Word that proceeds from YHWH because man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that comes from the Mouth of Elohim.
“For this commandment which I command you this day, it is not hidden from you, neither is it far off. It is not in heaven, that you should say, Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it? Neither is it beyond the sea, that you should say, Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it? But the word is very nigh unto you, in your mouth, and in your heart, that you may do it. See, I have set before you this day life and good, and death and evil; In that I command you this day to love the YHWH your Elohim, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou may live and multiply: and YHWH your Elohim shall bless you in the land where you go to possess it. But if your heart turn away, so that you will not hear, but shall be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them; I denounce unto you this day, that you shall surely perish, and that you shall not prolong your days upon the land, where you pass over Jordan to go to possess it. I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both you and your seed may live: That you may love YHWH your Elohim, and that you may obey his voice, and that you may cleave unto him: for he is your life, and the length of your days: that you may dwell in the land which YHWH swore unto your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.” Deuteronomy 30:11-20
Who will be in the Kingdom of Mashiyach?
“Who shall ascend into the hill of YHWH? or who shall stand in his holy place?
He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who has not lifted up his soul unto vanity,
nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from YHWH, and righteousness from the Elohim of his salvation.”
Contrary to popular opinion, we are not put on earth to win popularity contests or for the sake of having large ticket items to show off or huge followings of people on facebook. We are here to live righteous lives and carefully seek how we can please the one who gave His life for us. We are here for Him, not for ourselves.
It is Time
“Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek YHWH, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.” Hosea 10:1
Those who will enter are those who live “in Mashiyach” and Mashiyach lives “in” them. This difference is between following a religion about Mashiyach (like most of Christianity) or following Mashiyach and living how he lived. In the Aramaic English New Testament, translated by Andrew Gabriel Roth, there is an Appendix that surveys the 613 laws of Torah called “How much Torah do Christians already keep?”
It is very plain to see that the world would have turned to utter chaos a long time ago if Torah was completely abolished by the Church. But it will be a very huge surprise for many people that Jews, Muslims and Christians as well as the majority of non-religious people already keep a large degree of Torah, the problem is that not Torah and Mashiyach have been “hidden” behind a cloak of religion.
Those who have a love for Mashiyach are being turned away from Torah, those who love Torah are being turned away from Mashiyach by religion and religious traditions.
In the last book of the Bible there is a clear identity marker about who the Faithful followers of the Creator are, it reads:
And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of Elohim. And they sing the song of Moses the servant of Elohim, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvelous are your works, YHWH Elohim Almighty; just and true are Your ways, You King of saints. Who shall not fear You, O Adonai (Lord), and glorify your name? for you only are holy: for all nations shall come and worship before you; for your judgments are made manifest.
To sing the song of Moses means to have Torah written upon the heart, to know the song of the Lamb means to be “in” Mashiyach, not into a religion about him. This is not complicated, it means we put away the carnal man, we seek to be born anew spiritually in him, not into a religion about him but into a victorious life where we can put away our evil inclinations, our anger, our insecurities, our rebellion and simply learn to love YHWH our Father with all our heart, soul and mind.
Who shall ascend into the hill of YHWH? or who shall stand in his holy place? He that has clean hands, and a pure heart; who has not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
Baruch ben Daniel
