PSALM 16 MINISTRY BELIEFS
Our beliefs guide us in everything we do.
Our Theology has 5 Key Aspects:
Solo Gratia (Salvation by Grace alone)
Solo Scriptura (the Scriptures are our guide)
Pro-Nomianism (the Law is for today)
Continualism (the Spirit is for today)
Covenant Theology (we are Grafted into Israel instead of Replacing Israel)
The Holy Bible, and only the Bible, is the authoritative Word of God. It alone is the final authority in determining all doctrinal truths. In its original writing, it is inspired, infallible and inerrant in it's 66 Books.
These are often grouped as The Torah (First 5 Books which are translated as "The Law" but actually mean "Instruction"), the Prophets, the Writings (Poetry and History), the Gospels (Eye Witness Accounts of the Life of Yeshua Messiah) and the Apostolic Writings and Epistles (Letters to the Congregations).
The foundation of Scriptures is the first 5 Books of the Bible called the Torah/Pentateuch.
The correct understanding of the rest of the Scriptures will never contradict the first 5 Books (Torah).
Also, God may speak through an Inspired (Rhema) Word in Dreams Visions, Prophetic Utterances, Tongues, Circumstances, Numbers and even Angelic Visitations.
However that which is from God will never contradict His Written (Logos) Word.
All Scriptures is God Breathed and All Scripture is useful for Instruction for all believers regardless of their ethnicity, nationality or their place in the History of the World. God's Word has not ceased to be instruction at Malachi and neither has His Spirit ceased to be instruction at Pentecost or completing of the Canon or at the death of the last original Apostle.
(II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20-21; Proverbs 30:5; Romans 16:25-26.
Matthew 5:17-19, 2 Peter 3:16-19, John 4:24, Psalm 16:8, Acts 2).
THE NATURE OF GOD
There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. These three are co-eternal as stated in the Shema "Hear O' Israel, The Lord Your God, The Lord is ONE".
God The Father (The Creator) was known as Yahweh
(which has various spellings in modern Alphabets).
He is also known by the Tetragrammaton "YHVH" or by the euphemism "HaShem".
The Son is most often known by the English Jesus or His Hebrew Name "Yeshua".
The Spirit of God (Holy Spirit) is One Spirit but is 7-Fold in aspects as we are told in Isaiah.
We are to pray to the Father in the Name (Character and Authority) of the Son,
empowered by the Holy Spirit. This does not require any certain spelling of the Name.
Human beings have never been gods, are not gods and we never become gods. We will however have resurrection bodies unlike anything we can imagine.
(Deuteronomy 6:4, I John 5:7; Genesis 1:26; Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19; Luke 1:35;
Isaiah 9:6, Isaiah 11, Revelation 1; Hebrews 3:7-11).
YESHUA THE MESSIAH (JESUS THE CHRIST)
We believe Yeshua is Divine, the Son of YHVH. He is the second person of the Trinity. On earth, Yeshua was 100% God and 100% man. He is the only man ever to have lived a sinless life. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, died on the Execution Tree for mankind (on Passover) and thus, atoned for our sins through the shedding of His blood. He rose from the dead on the third day (Feast of First-Fruits), preached to the Souls of the departed and ascended to the right hand of the Father. He and will return again in Power and Glory.
Yeshua appeared throughout History in human form to Adam in the Garden and multiple times to Abraham to include once with 2 Angels and once as Melech Zadok (Melchizedek). He serves the roles of King, High Priest, Rabbi, Judge, Prophet Kinsman Redeemer and Passover Lamb. Yeshua came to free us from the power of Sin (the Evil Inclination/Yetzer Ra) and from the penalty of Sin (Spiritual Death), to restore our Relationship with the Father, and to teach us how to follow His Father's Divine Law in the Spirit and
Purpose that it was originally given (John 4:24).
(John 1:1,14, 20:28; I Timothy 3:16; Isaiah 9:6; Philippians 2:5-6; I Timothy 2:5).
VIRGIN BIRTH AND NATURE OF MARY
Yeshua Messiah was conceived by God the Father, through the Holy Spirit (the third person of the Trinity) in the virgin Miriam's womb; therefore, He is the Son of God. He has always existed and will always exist and is Not a created being. He is The Way, The Truth and the Life and also the Pre-Existent Word of God made Flesh. His Earthly Mother Miriam was a human being who was capable of Sin and did Sin. She also had later children by Joseph after Yeshua.
(Matthew 1:18, 25; Luke 1:35; Isaiah 7:14; Luke 1:27-35).
THE DUTY OF MAN
The whole Duty of Man is to Fear God and Keep/Guard His Commandments (Ecclesiastes 12:13). His two Greatest Commandments are to Love The Creator (Deuteronomy 6:4) and to Love your Neighbor (Leviticus 19:18). These Two Commandments were later expanded into Ten Commandments on Sapphire Stones. Then these Ten Commandments were explained in further detail by all the other Commandments, some of which are only performed with a Temple.
This Holy Mission was accomplished in Eden by representing the Character of God to the created world and it's creatures (being Imago Dei or an Image Bearer). Mankind was intended for a priesthood upon the Earth which would expand Eden. After Eden, mankind fell and lost the Image of God, becoming more like a Wild Beast in their nature than like a Holy Creator. The Creator kept a remnant for Himself running from Adam to Seth to Enoch to Moses to Shem to Abraham to Isaac and Jacob. The entirety of this Remnant (Israel) was intended for this Priesthood but they declined His Fellowship at Sinai. Therefore God chose the Levites to be the Priesthood of Israel. Aaron's clan would become the Priests to the Levites, the Levites would become the Priests to Israel, and Israel would become Priests to the rest of the world and the Ends of the Earth. Israel as a Nation rejected this Priestly Call however and instead of influencing the Nations around them with God's Wisdom in His Torah, they adopted the customs of the Nations and did far worse. The Creator sent Yeshua to redeem those who would allow themselves to be transformed by this Good News. Those from all the Nations that were willing to come into Covenant just as Abraham, Isaac and Jacob had done would have their character transformed into that of Messiah (Imago Dei). These would be raised up an Order of Priests after Melchizedek to take The Creator's Spirit and Truth (the Mind of Messiah) all over the world until the return of Messiah. This is the duty of the Nation of Priests that were chosen from the Foundations of the Earth. This Nation of Priests come from all Nations and both Genders, as the original Israelite Tribes have been scattered to all the edges of the Earth and there have been a Remnant from all the Gentile Nations to join in the Covenant with them.
(Genesis 49, Deuteronomy 6, Leviticus 19, Ecclesiastes 12, Ezekiel 37, Isaiah 58, Romans 11).
Man was created good and upright, but by voluntary transgression he fell; his only hope of redemption is in Yeshua Messiah, the Son of God. The Creator gave mankind the very first Instruction (Torah) which was to trust The Creator to determine what is Good and what is Evil. Mankind rebelled against The Creator's Wisdom and chose for themselves what is Good and what is Evil. Through this they gained an intimate and experiental knowledge of Evil and it's consequences. The impulse to do Evil entered the heart of man (Romans 8) and has remained every since.
The sun, moon and stars were made as part of The Creator's Divine Calendar to mark the 7 Feasts (Signs and Seasons) and the 7th Day was designated for Rest as the signature of The Creator to His Creation. Cain and Abel were later shown which animals which were meant for Temple Usage (the Temple of the human body which houses the Holy Spirit and also for God's Altar made of uncut stone then the Temple in Jerusalem). These instructions were passed to Noah who preserved an abundance of the clean animals. Abraham would pass these instructions on to his son Isaac and grandson Jacob and his 12 grandsons until they entered into Egypt as slaves (the land of rebellion).
After 430 years Moses would gather the children of Israel along with a mixed multitude of slaves from every Nation on Earth. During this time The Creator had Moses to write His pre-existent Torah for the first time in History. The Creator also added instructions for living in the wilderness and for the creation of a Tabernacle that was later replaced by a Temple and also for a Priesthood. These were to hide the sins of the people from the sight of The Creator until The Messiah would arrive to permanently remove the sins of the people by a far greater blood than that of animals.
During this time The Creator also introduced Himself by His Covenant Name for the first time to begin rebuilding a relationship with the Children of Israel along with the other Nations that had been grafted into Israel.
His Torah (Instructions) were given as the Gift of His Divine Wisdom for all aspects of living in a fallen and broken World (Psalm 119) to give them a long and healthy physical life in the Land He was giving them to enter (Deuteronomy 28-30). The Messiah would come later to give them Spiritual Life that does not end but all of the sacrifices led to Him. The Children of Abraham were assigned to be Priests to the World teaching the Nation (Gentiles) the Wisdom of God's Instruction and how to Walk in His Spirit,
through the line of of Isaac then
Jacob then the 12 Tribes.
The people lost the heart and the purpose of His Instructions along the way. So God sent the Prophets to help mankind understand His Heart again in giving the Torah and the right understanding for carrying out the Torah.
He finally sent Yeshua as the Prophet like Moses to show us HOW to keep His Torah in The Way that He intended. By this time religious leaders had perverted His Torah into a burden and also into a false method of Salvation.
Yeshua came as the High Priest that brings the Covenant promised in Jeremiah 31 and Ezekiel 36. This Covenant would write the Torah on our hearts so we would be willing to be obedient out of Love instead of Fear or Bargaining.
Since Mankind could never keep the Torah to perfection, Yeshua must still redeem us from breaking the Torah.
(Gen. 1:26-31, 3:1-7; Exodus 12, Numbers 15, Psalm 119, Isaiah 56 -58, Zechariah 14, Isaiah 66,
Matthew 5:17-19, Luke 4, Acts 11, Acts 10, Acts 15, 1st Corinthians 5, 1 Corinthians 10,
2 Corinthians 6, 2 Peter 3, Romans 5:12-21).
For anyone to know God, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. Only Yeshua's perfect obedience and submission to His Father (The King of the Universe) can pay the penalty for our rebellion and mutiny. Accepting His atonement (covering) for our Rebellion against the King and Transgression of the Divine Law allows mankind to become Children of God once again, instead of just the Creation of God. When Yeshua returns to the Earth He will restore all the power and authority that mankind lost in the fall of Adam and Eve. The full regeneration in a Resurrected Body will allow mankind's character to be fully restored
so we can be trusted to reign again. The 12 Tribes of Israel will also be restored as this time as we see in Isaiah 11 and Revelation 7 and Revelation 14 with even certain formerly pagan nations such as Egypt and Assyria becoming "highways of righteousness" in Isaiah 35.
(Daniel 12, John 6:44, 65; Matthew 19:28; Titus 3:5, Revelation 20).
We are saved by grace through faith in Yeshua Messiah: His death, burial, and resurrection. Salvation is a gift from God, not a result of our good works or of any human efforts or ruling by a Church or Ecclesiastical Figure. Salvation goes hand in hand with Repentance of Sin. A True Salvation experience begins the process of Sanctification and will not allow an individual to remain unchanged as time progresses. False conversions based on emotion or on sacrament or intellectual assent are common. Salvation can only be lost by the persistent will of a person who has fully and Intentionally rejected The Creator. Such a person does not wish to
Fellowship with Him in this Present Age or in the Age to Come nor are they concerned with any Godly Spiritual Pursuits. Salvation is never guaranteed for any ethnicity as God can raise up the rocks to cry out to praise Him if His Covenant people refuse to do so.
(Ephesians 2:8-9; Galatians 2:16, 3:8; Titus 3:5; Romans 10:9-10; Acts 16:31; Hebrews 9:22).
REPENTANCE AND GRACE
Repentance is the commitment to turn away from sin in every area of our lives and to follow Yeshua, which allows us to receive His redemption and to be regenerated by the Holy Spirit. Thus, through repentance we receive forgiveness of sins and appropriate salvation. Sin is the breaking of the Letter of God's Law or also the Spirit of God's Law. If we know the Good we should do but remain passive or apathetic this is also an act of Sin. Sin is an act of Rebellion against the King of the Universe but Repentance is to ask for a Divine Pardon in the Heavenly Courts and then to make Teshuvah/Repent (to turn around and follow
The Way of Yeshua instead of going our own Way).
There are many sins which are done in ignorance according to Scripture. There is a natural cause and effect for breaking any of God's Commands. However that which is done in ignorance receives less severe spiritual consequence than that which was done willfully with knowledge out human weakness (Iniquity) or with malice (Wickedness).
There are also sins which effect the Community (like False Prophecy) or one's Neighbor (Theft) vs Sins which only effect the individual's health (such as violating the dietary restrictions).
Some Sins are carnal in nature like gluttony while other sins such as
Paganism or Blasphemy are spiritual in nature. Sins committed after Salvation will not bring about Punishment in the Kingdom but they will bring about a loss of certain rewards.
There are additional areas which we may not recognize as Sin until we arrive in the Kingdom and The Creator teaches us all of His Laws and Instructions clearly and plainly. Some were not revealed to our grandparent's generations but were revealed to us, while others may not be revealed until our children's generation. The grandfather of Moses was not stoned for picking up sticks on Sabbath. However the Danite who had just crossed the Red Sea held far greater burden of guilt due to the clear Revelation that had just been given to his generation. There are also certain Scriptures and Scriptural Principals that remain unclear because Salvation is the utmost concern of the Creator. There are many areas of life He will teach us about in the Kingdom but first we must get into the Kingdom, otherwise knowledge will be of no use to us.
(Deuteronomy 28-30, Acts 2:21, Acts 15, Matthew 5:17-19, Matthew 15, Corinthians 3,
I John 1:9, 1 John 3:4, James 4:17, Isaiah 58).
Sanctification is the ongoing process of yielding to The Creator's Word and His Spirit in order to complete the development of Messiah’s character in us. It is through the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God that the Believer is enabled to live a Godly life. Sanctification is assisted by an awareness of the God's Grace as well as proper instruction in the Word of God and the Accountability of a Community of committed believers. Everyone begins at different points in their journey and Sanctification begins in different areas for different believers and at different speeds for different believers. So have Grace for one another's shortcoming as it may be an area the Spirit has not yet addressed in that believer.
(I Thessalonians 4:3, 5:23; II Corinthians 3:18, 6:14-18, II Thessalonians 2:1-3,
Romans 8:29, 12:1-2, Hebrews 2:11).
The Blood that Yeshua Messiah shed on the Tree at Golgotha was sinless and is 100% sufficient to cleanse mankind of all sin. Jesus allowed Himself to be punished for both our sinfulness and our sins, enabling all those who believe to be free from the penalty of sin, which is spiritual death. The Blood/Atonement of Jesus is Sacred and not to be taken lightly in the way that The Lord's Name is often taken in vain (without Holy Usage) for show or for superstition or for the establishment of a one's righteousness over another human being.
(I John 1:7; Revelation 1:5, 5:9; Colossians 1:20; Romans 3:10-12, 23, 5:9; John 1:29).
YESHUA MESSIAH INDWELLS ALL BELIEVERS
Covenant Believers are people who have invited Yeshua Messiah to be their Lord and Master and direct their lives by His Holy Spirit. They relinquish the authority of their lives over to Him and calling upon Him as their Savior instead of any other path to the Kingdom or means of Salvation. They put their trust in what Yeshua accomplished for them when He died, was buried, and rose again from the dead instead of in themselves and their own efforts or reasoning. The Testimony of Yeshua is the Spirit of Prophecy. The Holy Spirit always testifies to Yeshua and to no other savior. Salvation is in part our inviting Yeshua to use us as His Hands and Feet to accomplish His Purpose on the Earth.
(John 1:12; John 14:17, 23; John 15:4; Romans 8:11; Revelation 3:20).
BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT
Given at Shavuot (Pentecost), it is the promise of the Father, sent by Yeshua Messiah after His Ascension, to empower the Covenant Believers to preach the Good News of the Kingdom throughout the whole earth. Before Yeshua's Resurrection the Spirit would indwell humans temporarily but the cleansing of the heart by Yeshua and forgiveness of Sins allows this indwelling to now be permanent. The Spirit can reside in a heart of flesh but not in a heart of stone, which is what we all possess before coming into a life changing Covenant with Yeshua. A changed life is thereby the ultimate confirmation of the Presence of the Holy Spirit within. Believers will or should also experience a Baptism by self-immersion in Water in the Name of Yeshua and a Baptism by Fire (trials and tribulations the refine the believer over time).
(Joel 2:28-29; Matthew 3:11; Mark 16:17; Acts 1:5,2:1-4, 17, 38-39, 8:14-17, 10:38, 44-47, 11:15-17, 19:1-6)
THE GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit is manifested through a variety of spiritual gifts to build and sanctify the Congregations, demonstrate the validity of the resurrection, and confirm the power of the Gospel of the Kingdom. The Scriptures lists of these gifts are not necessarily exhaustive, and the gifts may occur in various combinations. All believers are commanded to earnestly desire the manifestation of the gifts in their lives. Tongues is the least of these gifts and the easiest to counterfeit so it is never to be a proof of Salvation but it is also not to be forbidden. Interpretation of Tongues is the tool for it's highest effectiveness in the Body of Messiah. The Greatest of the Gifts are Prophecy. These gifts always operate in harmony with the Scriptures and should never be used in violation of Scriptural parameters like Simon the Magus attempted in earlier days and the Anti-Messiah and the False Prophet will attempt in the Last Days, and those operating in those spirits. The Gifts are however without Repentance so often times the Ungodly are still Gifted or on Thrones (like Samson and Balaam and Caiaphas).
(Hebrews 2:4; Romans 1:11, 12 :4-8; Ephesians 4:16; I Timothy 4:14; II Timothy 1:6-7;
Acts 8, I Corinthians 12:1-31, 14:1-40; I Peter 4:10).
The Congregations of Covenant Believers is the Body of Messiah, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with Divine Anointing for the fulfillment of Yeshua's’ Great Commission on the Earth. Every person who is born of the Spirit is an integral part of the Congregation as a member of the Body of Covenant Believers. There is a spiritual unity of all believers in our Messiah Yeshua. The Congregations are to include those with a recognized ministry gifting for Evangelism, for Teaching, for Pastoring, for Prophecy and for Apostleship in order to grow the Congregation in numbers but also in maturity and obedience to Yeshua Messiah's Spirit and Truth. The First Century Congregations were considered all the believers in that city instead of multiple divisions of the Body based on contrary Doctrines. Unity was possible because the Apostles were unified and the local Body of Believers were therefore also unified in Doctrine with allowances made for cultural expresses of the Faith. The Body of Messiah was to be the first source for Believers in practical assistance, spiritual guidance, emotional support, fellowship and even civil dispute settlement (known as a Beit Den in Bible Times, a House of Judgment led by a panel of 10 mature believers/elders at the gate). The Congregation was also intended to be the first source for selection of a spouse and primary influence on future generations through the mentorship provided to fathers and mothers and spouses and leaders.
(Ephesians 1:22, 2:19-22; Hebrews 12:23; John 17:11, 20-23).
Water Baptism: Following faith in the Yeshua Messiah, the newcomer to the Covenant is commanded by the Word of God to be baptized in water in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Baptism should be participated in by all believing adults no matter if they were baptized as an infant/child or were not baptized. Baptism is a self-immersion.
(Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38; Mark 16:16; Acts 8:12, 36-38; 10:47-48).
The Lord’s Supper: A unique time of communion in the presence of God when the elements of bread and grape juice (the Body and Blood of Yeshua Messiah) are taken in remembrance of Yeshua's sacrifice on the Tree
This a separate event from the Passover (Matthew 26:26-29; I Corinthians 10:16, 11:23-25, 1st Corinthians 5).
Marriage: We believe marriage is defined in the Bible as a Covenant, and originally intended sacred bond between one naturally born man and ONE naturally born woman equal in Salvation but different in spiritual responsibility, instituted by and publicly entered into before God with at least two or three believing witnesses.
Circumcision: We believe that Circumcision (for males only) is of great medical benefit especially if performed on the 8th Day by a trained, experienced and licensed professional. Circumcision has no benefit for Salvation. It was however the sign of being born into a community of believers and is to be sought for newborn boys. This is similar to the water dedication of infants in that it does not provide salvation but it is a powerful communal recognition.
Passover: We believe that Passover was instructed by the Apostles specifically for the New Testament Church outside of the Temple in 1st Corinthians 5.
Passover is only for believers in a Covenant Community.
HEALING OF THE SICK
Healing of the sick is illustrated in the life and ministry of Yeshua, and included in the commission of Yeshua to His disciples. It is given as a sign, which is to follow believers. It is also a part of Yeshua's work on the Cross and one of the Gifts of the Spirit. Some believers will be healed in this World and some will be healed in the World to Come. This is not dependent on their Faith but is instead dependent on the Wisdom and Foreknowledge of God, and sometimes a result of His Mercy as we do not know what the person would have later witnessed or endured or even become if they were given more years.
(Isaiah 57:1, Psalm 103:2-3; Isaiah 53:5; Matthew 8:16-17; Mark 16:17-18; Acts 8:6-7;
James 5:14-16; I Corinthians 12:9, 28; Romans 11:29)
GOD’S WILL FOR PROVISION
It is the Father’s will for believers to become whole, healthy and successful in all areas of life. But because of the fall, many may not receive the full benefits of God’s will while on Earth. Factors such as how the individual may misuse blessings to harm themselves or others or even to forget God may be reasons abundant provision is not present. We believe that God is not honored by either a degrading level of Poverty or an arrogant display of Wealth.
(John 3:3-11; II Corinthians 5:17-21; Romans 10:9-10), (II Timothy 1:7, 2:11; Philippians 4:7-8; Romans 12:2; Isaiah 26:3). (Isaiah 53:4,5; Matthew 8:17; I Peter 2:24). (Joshua 1:8; Malachi 3:10-11; Luke 6:38; II Corinthians 9:6-10; Deuteronomy 28:1-14; Psalm 34:10, 84:11; Philippians 4:19).
We believe that Jesus Christ (Yeshua Messiah) was physically resurrected from the dead in a glorified body three days after His death on the Execution Tree. In addition, both the saved and the lost will be resurrected; they that are saved to the resurrection of life and they that are lost to the resurrection of condemnation in Gehenna. Those who experience the first Resurrection will be much like Adam before the Fall and like Yeshua after His Bodily Resurrection. Those is in the first Resurrection will have the power and authority once held by Adam restored and with it all the abilities that existed for mankind before Sin corrupted mankind. They will rule and reign on the Earth with Messiah Yeshua for 1,000 years.
(Luke 24:16, 36, 39; John 2:19-21, 20:26-28, 21:4; Acts 24:15; I Corinthians 15:42, 44;
Daniel 12, Philippians 1:21-23, 3:21, Revelation 20).
Heaven is the eternal dwelling place for all believers in the Gospel of Yeshua Messiah. Rewards in Heaven will be determined by various factors. Cities (Authority) are given due to obedience in keeping/guarding and teaching even the least of the Commandments. These may be the ones that are the least understood, the least liked or the that seem most frivolous to most other people. Material rewards are given based on the use of the Skills and Talents and Resources we have been given for Kingdom Purposes. There are also Crowns (Honor) given to those who remain Loyal in times of Persecution and Martyrdom. Rewards are lost however due to insincerity in service. When Messiah Returns He will reinstate the 7 Festivals He earlier commanded as well as the Sabbath for the whole Earth.
The Creator is perfectly just in Judging by the Light an individual was given and He has a way of presenting the offer of Covenant with everyone. Each person is allowed to make a fully informed Free Will Choice and He honors their choices either for living in the Kingdom forever or to live outside the Kingdom in the Outer Darkness.
(Isaiah 58 and 66, Zechariah 14, Matthew 5, 12, 20, 6:20, 19:21, 25:34; 1st Corinthians 5,
John 17:24; John 4:24, II Corinthians 5:1; Hebrews 11:16; I Peter 1:4).
After living one life on earth, those who refused to be in Covenant with The Creator cast out of His Presence and into Gehenna alongside HaSatan (who led the first Rebellion against The Creator) and the Fallen Angels, Nephillim, Demons, and those the Ancient World worshipped as gods. The Dimensions of Heaven and Hell will be outside of Time so we do not know how long those in torment will be tormented until Death itself is destroyed and there remains no suffering anywhere, as it was before the Rebellion of HaSatan began. Thus returning the World to the Edenic State. Those outside of Covenant will never know Paradise (the full Presence of God uninhibited by The Fall). The Creator is perfectly just in Judging by the Light an individual was given and He has a way of presenting the offer of Covenant with everyone. Each person is allowed to make a fully informed Free Will Choice and He honors their choices either for living in the Kingdom forever or to live outside the Kingdom in the Outer Darkness.
(Matthew 25:41; Mark 9:43-48; Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 14:9-11, 20:12-15, 21:8).
Yeshua who first came to Earth as Messiah Ben Joseph will physically and visibly return to Earth for the second time (now as Messiah Ben David) to establish His Kingdom. This will occur at a date undisclosed by the Scriptures. He will return to rule and reign over all on the Earth. Yeshua has defeated all the forces of darkness that were once called "gods" by the ancient world and He has the loyalty of all that did not fall. He is above every other Name and every other Spiritual Being on the Earth. In the future every knee of every created Creature will bow to
The Kingdom will be available to all Genders and all Races that come into a Saving Covenant with Yeshua Messiah. Each Nation of the Earth will enter the Kingdom by being Grafted into Israel by the King of Israel (Yeshua the Prince of Peace) after the pattern of Abraham, Rahab and Ruth as there is no Gentile Gate into the New Jerusalem.
(Matthew 24:30, 26:63-64; Acts 1:9-11; I Thessalonians 4:15-17; II Thessalonians 1:7-8; Revelation 1:7)
