>>> THIS DO <<<
These two short words were spoken by our Messiah and Saviour, and are probably of the most important words that He spoke, that we need to understand. However, very few people know what the “THIS” is that He said had to be “DONE”. Very few know, therefore, what the reward is for doing, and the consequences for not doing the “THIS”.
So let us look at the context of these two words.
And after this the Master appointed seventy others, and sent them two by two ahead of Him into every city and place where He Himself was about to go. Then He said to them, “The harvest indeed is great, but the workers are few, therefore pray to the Master of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest. Go! See I send you as lambs into the midst of wolves… (Luk.10:1-3)
So the context of “This do…” was the harvesting of souls for His kingdom. The harvesters were as lambs being sent among the wolves. We will understand later that the “wolves” are religious leaders who have their own agenda of “This do.”
In giving the seventy disciples their instructions (v.4-15), Messiah ends with these most significant words that explain what soul winning is all about – motivating people to lovingly hear (Heb. Sh’MA = _DO what you hear).
He who hears you hears Me, He who rejects you rejects Me, and He who rejects Me rejects Him who sent Me. v.16. (Reject in this context means to refuse to “hear and do” the Torah instructions of the Almighty).
Immediately in verse 17 Scripture tells us that the seventy disciples returned from their commission and with joy and excitement reported to Messiah what had happened.
“Master, even the demons are subject to us in Your Name!”
In His instructions before sending them out He did not mention His Name even once. It is therefore inferred that the Authority of His Name was understood by His disciples as being the very foundation of proclaiming His Kingdom. It was the bottom line of what He taught. (John 3:18, 14:14, 15 & 26). This is the reason why the enemy is sowing so much confusion in our day and age as to what His true Name is. One of the seemingly wise arguments that is bandied about is that any of the many Hebrew names bestowed upon Him today are acceptable. Really? mmm 🤔 – Acts 4:12 seems to contradict that argument.
How did YaHUShA react to their exciting report?
I saw Satan falling out of the heavens as lighting. See, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and none at all shall hurt you. (v.18 & 19)
Wow! He has given us authority over all the power of the enemy! If only we as believers can understand that it’s not our great faith, or our own power or righteousness that gives us authority over ALL the enemy’s power, but simply YaHUShA’s Name spoken with boldness, belief, love and utmost respect. If we can comprehend this amazing truth, then and only then, Psalm 91 will become a reality in our lives. Meditate upon verses 14 to 16 of this wonderful psalm, and rejoice.
He then continues by saying something that should make us stop and think. Remember, they were rejoicing because of the power He had given them over demonic powers. He says:
But do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names have been written in the heavens. (v.20)
That was the end of His conversation with His disciples, especially with the seventy who had just returned. There must have been quite a crowd gathered, curious about what this Man and His disciples were up to. Amongst the crowd were the religious leaders, the scribes and Pharisees who were extremely jealous of the growing following this carpenter from Nazareth had.
Scripture then witnesses that YaHUShA, in the Ruach (Spirit), broke into praise.
In that hour YaHUShA exulted in the Ruach and said, “I praise You, Father, Master of the heavens and of the earth, that You have hidden these from clever and learned ones, and revealed them to children. Yes, Father, because thus it was well pleasing in Your sight. All has been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows who the Son is, except the Father, and who the Father is, except the Son, and he to whom the Son wants to reveal.” (v.21 & 22)
This praise prayer was directed to the Father, but spoken so that the crowd, amongst whom the religious leaders were scattered, could hear. He did this on purpose in order to draw them out. One of them took the bait, but before he did, YaHUShA turned back to His disciples.
And turning to His disciples He said to them, “Blessed are the eyes that see what you see, for I say to you that many prophets and kings have wanted to see what you see, and have not seen it, and to hear what you hear, and have not heard it. (v. 23 & 24)
In His short prayer YaHUShA had just praised the Father for hiding spiritual truth from the clever and learned ones and revealing these truths to children (simple believers).
One of these “clever” ones, full of himself, fell for it hook, line and sinker… 😏
And see, a certain one learned in the Torah stood up, trying Him, and saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” (v. 25)
First of all, the man who asked this very important question of YaHUShA was an Israelite. He was also a lawyer, in other words, one who was a scribe and learned in the Torah (the Law or Teaching Instructions of YaHUaH). We are told in Scripture that this learned religious man asked the question to try or entice the Messiah. He was arrogantly trying to get Him to speak against or contradict the Torah, so that they could have something with which to prosecute Him. It was a very good question, and one that was probably as much debated in those days as it is today.
You see, these religious people – the scribes and Pharisees, knew the Torah, but they were continually adding to it with their own man-made laws which they then enforced upon the “unlearned” ordinary people. These numerous ritualistic laws became an ever-increasing unbearable burden for the people, and because they did not know any better, trusting in the learning of the religious leaders, they slowly but surely turned their backs on the true Torah of YaHUaH.
Ironically, the learned religious leaders of today have, by and large, turned the tables. They say that we cannot add to the finished work of the Messiah (which is true), but then conclude that by attempting to abide by Torah we are trying to add to His work of redemption and will “fall from grace”. How on earth can YaHUaH’s often spoken exhortations in the Torah and the prophets to His people to lovingly guard His Torah with all their heart, strength and mind, be reconciled to much teachings found in church today that attempting to keep Torah will cause one to “fall from grace”?
How did YaHUShA answer the lawyer? He played the ball accurately right back in the “clever” man’s court.
And He said to him, “What has been written in the Torah? How do you read it? (v.26)
Of course this proud man was eager to flaunt his knowledge in front of the great crowd. Puffing out his chest he answered:
“You shall love YaHUaH your Elohim with all your heart, and with all your being, and with all your strength, and with all your mind, and your neighbour as yourself.” (v. 27)
I think he was hoping that YaHUShA would argue with him as He often did with the religious leaders who were constantly trying to trip Him up. But in this instance, He used an arrogant religious leader to teach the crowd what their Creator and covenant Partner, YaHUaH, required of them.
The One who was without sin, and who therefore never bore false witness (lied), answered very simply and clearly:
“You have answered correctly. THIS DO and you shall live.” (v. 28)
Wow! Did the Messiah just say that inheriting eternal life was the product of sincerely and lovingly keeping the spirit of Torah – love toward our Maker and fellow man? Certainly He did. This was after all the correct answer to the religious man’s equally clear question: Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?
In order to interpret that simple question or that simple answer to say anything other than what they are so clearly saying, would require extreme spiritual gymnastics in which the enemy is a past master.
The old serpent’s religious cohorts are just as adept at false spiritual gymnastics as their master. This religious leader, instead of humbly acknowledging the answer to the question he had asked, tried to wriggle out of his embarrassment with another question that only served to highlight his ignorance while giving the Master the opportunity to illustrate to the crowd what true love really is – how to practically live out THIS DO toward each other in this world.
In this next verse (29), in a few words, Scripture distinctly discloses the evil of a self-righteous religious heart.
But he, wanting to declare himself righteous, said to YaHUShA, “And who is my neighbour? (v.29)
Can you hear the sneer in that question?
Read again for yourself the well-known parable of the good Samaritan. It is a beautiful story of how to love someone in need when it is within your power to do so.

Woe to those who rise early in the morning pursuing strong drink, who stay up late at night – wine inflames them! And the lyre and the harp, the tambourine and flute, and wine are in their feasts; but they do not regard the deeds of יהוה, nor see the work of His hands. Therefore my people have gone into exile, because they have no knowledge. And their esteemed men are starved, and their crowd dried up with thirst. Therefore the grave has made itself wide and opened its mouth beyond measure. Their splendour and their crowd and their uproar, and he who is exulting within her, shall go down into it. And man is bowed down, and mortal man humbled, and the eyes of the proud are humbled. But יהוה of hosts is exalted in judgment, and the set-apart Ěl is set-apart in righteousness. And the lambs shall feed in their pasture, and strangers shall eat in the waste places of the fat ones. Woe to those who draw crookedness with cords of falsehood, and sin as with wagon ropes, who are saying, “Let Him hurry! Let Him hasten His work, so that we see it! And let the counsel of the Set-apart One of Yisra’ĕl draw near and come, so that we know.” Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and clever in their own sight! Woe to the mighty to drink wine, and brave men to mix strong drink, Isaiah 5:11-22
Don’t be drunk with false teachings!
So then do not be foolish, but understand what the desire of יהוה is.
And do not be drunk with wine, in which is loose behaviour, but be filled with the Spirit, speaking to each other in psalms and songs of praise and spiritual songs, singing and striking the strings in your heart to the Master, giving thanks always for all to Elohim the Father, in the Name of our Master יהושע Messiah, subjecting yourselves to each other in the fear of Elohim. Eph 5:17-21
You will build with whole H8003 stones H68 the altar H4196 of YaHuWaH H3068 your Eloah H433 and offer whole burnt offerings H5930 on it to YaHuWaH H3068 your Eloah H433. And you will offer peace offerings H8002 and will eat H398 there and rejoice before YaHuWaH H3068 your Eloah H433 and you will write very plainly on the stones H68 all the word H1697 of this law.” And Mosheh H4872 and the temple officials H3548 (priests) the Laywiyiym H3881, spoke to all Yisra’el H3478 saying H559, “Take heed and hear H8085, Yisra’el H3478. This day H3117 you have become the people H5971 of YaHuWaH H3068 your Eloah H433. And you will hear H8085 the voice H6963 of YaHuWaH H3068 your Eloah H433 and observe His commandments and His statutes that I command you today.” Deut 27:6-10

From H7999; complete (literally or figuratively); especially friendly. (shalem used by mistake for a name.): – full, just, made ready, peaceable, perfect (-ed), quiet, Shalem [by mistake for a name], whole.
Complete or whole = H8003 shaw-lame’- Complete or friendly-abstract definition
Clearly these stones are those that are presented by following the words of Moshe and the priesthood! Those who have been pressed by the teaching that cleanses (water or blood) You can only get the teachings from Moshe and the priesthood and that is what makes us complete! As living stones we have to be full of the word! When we become full of His word we become more spiritual and are able to judge and use right ruling accordingly so that we can build up Abba’s house! Beth EL! Abba wants us to write His word upon our hearts!
Remember only once a year could the Levites bring a sacrifice to the alter and it would live!
From the root of H1129 through the meaning, to build; a stone: – + carbuncle, + mason, + plummet, [chalk-, hail-, bead-, sling-] stone (-ny), (divers) weight (-s).
The stone which the builders rejected Has become the chief corner-stone. Ps 118:22
So then you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the set-apart ones and members of the household of Elohim, having been built upon the foundation of the emissaries and prophets, יהושע Messiah Himself being chief corner-stone, in whom all the building, being joined together, grows into a set-apart Dwelling Place in יהוה, in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling of Elohim in the Spirit. Eph 2:19-22
“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies. To him who overcomes I shall give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I shall give him a white stone, and on the stone a renewed Name written which no one knows except him who receives it.” ’ Rev 2:17
Having put aside, then, all evil, and all deceit, and hypocrisies, and envyings, and all evil words, as newborn babes, desire the unadulterated milk of the Word, in order that you grow by it, if indeed you have tasted that the Master is good. Drawing near to Him, a living Stone – rejected indeed by men, but chosen by Elohim and precious – you also, as living stones, are being built up, a spiritual house, a set-apart priesthood, to offer up spiritual slaughter offerings acceptable to Elohim through יהושע Messiah. Because it is contained in the Scripture, “See, I lay in Tsiyon a chief corner-stone, chosen, precious, and he who believes on Him shall by no means be put to shame.” Isa_28:16. This preciousness, then, is for you who believe; but to those who are disobedient, “The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief corner-stone,” Psa_118:22. and “A stone of stumbling and a rock that makes for falling,” Isa_8:14 who stumble because they are disobedient to the Word, to which they also were appointed. Footnote: See Joh_3:36, Heb_3:18. But you are a chosen race, Deu_10:15 a royal priesthood, Isa_61:6 a set-apart nation, Exo_19:6 a people for a possession, Isa_43:2 that you should proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvellous light, Footnotes: Also see Isa_43:20. Also see Isa_66:21. Also see Deu_7:6. Also see Exo_19:5, Tit_2:14. 1Peter 2:1-9
I call upon you, therefore, brothers, through the compassion of Elohim, to present your bodies a living offering – set-apart, well-pleasing to Elohim – your reasonable worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you prove what is that good and well-pleasing and perfect desire of Elohim. Romans 12:1-2
But I have written more boldly to you, in part, as reminding you, because of the favour given to me by Elohim, to be a servant of יהושע Messiah to the nations, with the priestly duty of bringing the Good News of Elohim, so that the offering of the nations becomes acceptable, set apart by the Set-apart Spirit. Therefore I have cause for boasting in Messiah יהושע in the matters pertaining to Elohim. For I shall not presume to speak of any matter except what Messiah has worked out through me, in word and deed, to make the nations obedient, Romans 15:15-18
Remember Paul was a Pharisee and He was run off by them and He had come to the knowledge of the Melki Yah. What was the priesthood was He talking about? Hmm….. He realized that He was called to the priestly service to serve the body.
In the Levitical order when the sacrifices were brought to the alter they died and there had to be shedding of blood!
Unlike the Aaronic priesthood, when sacrifices were brought to the altar of YaHuWaH by the Melchizedek priest …..the sacrifice lived!
So when a sacrifice comes away from the altar they get to become a new creation in YaHuWaH covered by the HIGH PRIEST HIMSELF = Blood of the Lamb (YaHuWaH’s Deliverance, my Yahusha)
Do not be borne about by various and strange teachings. For it is good for the heart to be established by favour, not with foods which have not profited those who have been occupied with them. Footnote: Eph_4:14. We have a slaughter-place from which those serving the Tent have no authority to eat. For the bodies of those beasts whose blood is brought into the Set-apart Place by the high priest for sin, are burned outside the camp. Hebrews 13:9-11
The ones that cling to the Levitical order do not have the right to eat off the same altar that we eat from! They don’t have the right to the Passover Lamb! They don’t believe in Messiah!
I asked a question. What was the priesthood Paul was talking about?
Have you figured it out yet?
Be Sober and Vigilant
What we need to know to keep us protected and from being devoured by hasatan.
1Pe 5:1 Therefore, as a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Messiah, and also a sharer of the esteem that is to be revealed, I appeal to the elders among you:
1Pe 5:2 Shepherd the flock of Elohim which is among you, serving as overseers, not by compulsion but voluntarily, not out of greed for filthy gain, but eagerly,
1Pe 5:3 neither as being masters over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock.
1Pe 5:4 And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you shall receive the never-fading crown of esteem.
1Pe 5:5 In the same way, you younger ones, be subject to elders. And gird yourselves with humility toward one another, for “Elohim resists the proud, but gives favour to the humble.”
1Pe 5:6 Humble yourselves, then, under the mighty hand of Elohim, so that He exalts you in due time,
1Pe 5:7 casting all your worry upon Him, for He is concerned about you.
1Pe 5:8 Be sober, watch, because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
1Pe 5:9 Resist him, firm in the belief, knowing that the same hardships are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.
Deu 22:22 “When a man is found lying with a woman married to a husband, then both of them shall die, both the man that lay with the woman, and the woman. Thus you shall purge the evil from Yisra’ĕl.
Deu 22:23 “When a girl who is a maiden is engaged to a husband, and a man finds her in the city and lies with her,
Deu 22:24 then you shall bring them both out to the gate of that city, and shall stone them to death with stones, the girl because she did not cry out in the city, and the man because he has humbled his neighbour’s wife. Thus you shall purge the evil from your midst.
A primitive root (possibly rather identical with H6030 through the idea of looking down or browbeating); to depress literally or figuratively, transitively or intransitively (in various applications). (sing is by mistake for H6030.): – abase self, afflict (-ion, self), answer [by mistake for H6030], chasten self, deal hardly with, defile, exercise, force, gentleness, humble (self), hurt, ravish, sing [by mistake for H6030], speak [by mistake for H6030], submit self, weaken, X in any wise.
Jer 51:1 Thus said יהוה, “See, I am stirring up the spirit of a destroyer against Baḇel, against those who dwell in Lĕb – My opponents.
Jer 51:2 And I shall send winnowers to Baḇel, who shall winnow her and empty her land. For they shall be against her all around, in the day of evil.
Jer 51:3 “Let the archer draw his bow, and let him stand ready in his armour. Do not spare her young men, put all her army under the ban.
Jer 51:4 “And the slain shall fall in the land of the Chaldeans, and the pierced-through in her streets.
Jer 51:5 “For neither Yisra’ĕl nor Yehuḏah is widowed by his Elohim, יהוה of hosts, though their land has been filled with sin against the Set-apart One of Yisra’ĕl.”
Jer 51:6 2Flee from the midst of Baḇel, and let each one save his life! Do not be cut off in her crookedness, for this is the time of the vengeance of יהוה, the recompense He is repaying her.
Jer 51:7 Baḇel was a golden cup in the hand of יהוה, making drunk all the earth. The nations drank her wine, that is why the nations went mad!
Jer 51:8 Baḇel shall suddenly fall and be broken. Howl for her! Take balm for her pain – if so be, she might be healed.
Jer 51:9 We would have healed Baḇel, but she is not healed. Let us leave her and each go to his own land, for her judgment reaches to the heavens and is lifted up to the clouds.
If we only followed the Torot and are covered in the blood of the Melchizedek Priesthood we can remain a maiden until our Husband comes to take us.
We who are shepherding the seed of Elohim should afflict and humble ourselves under Yah’s guidance (under the mighty hand of Elohim) and cast the worries it presents before Him and He will take care of it.
The practices of sobriety and vigilance are what empower us to resist the enemy when he comes to try and court us with nice flowers. Looks good and smells good but they are not from ABBA!
We don’t teach safeness. We teach abstinence.
Complete abstinence must be in our homes if we say that we are part of the priesthood. Our homes cannot be contaminated with fornication, physical or spiritual.
Of uncertain affinity; to abstain from wine (keep sober), that is, (figuratively) be discreet: – be sober, watch.
Rev 17:1 And one of the seven messengers who had the seven bowls came and spoke with me, saying to me, “Come, I shall show you the judgment of the great whore sitting on many waters,
Rev 17:2 with whom the sovereigns of the earth committed whoring, and the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her whoring.”
Rev 17:3 And he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness. And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast covered with names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
Rev 17:4 And the woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, holding in her hand a golden cup filled with abominations and the filthiness of her whoring,
Rev 17:5 and upon her forehead a name written, a secret: BAḆEL THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF THE WHORES AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
Rev 17:6 And I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the set-apart ones, and with the blood of the witnesses of יהושע. And having seen her, I marvelled – greatly marvelled!
Burp the Bride, gather the children, get them immersed, have them repent from dead works, come out of falsehood, false religions, immerse them into the body of Messiah so that we can gain our maidenhood. If we cannot regain our maidenhood we cannot join to the Husband. There is no way that the King of Kings and the Master of Masters is going to take a whore for a wife!
From G1453; to keep awake, that is, watch (literally or figuratively): – be vigilant, wake, (be) watch (-ful).
Mar 14:22 And as they were eating, יהושע took bread, having blessed, broke it, gave it to them and said, “Take, eat, this is My body.”
Mar 14:23 And taking the cup, giving thanks, He gave it to them, and they all drank from it.
Mar 14:24 And He said to them, “This is My blood, that of the renewed covenant, which is shed for many.
Mar 14:25 “Truly, I say to you, I shall certainly no more drink of the fruit of the vine till that day when I drink it anew in the reign of Elohim.”
Mar 14:26 And having sung a song, they went out to the Mount of Olives.
Mar 14:27 And יהושע said to them, “All of you shall stumble in Me this night, for it has been written, ‘I shall strike the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered.’
Mar 14:28 “But after I am raised, I shall go before you to Galil.”
Mar 14:29 And Kĕpha said to Him, “Even if all shall stumble, yet not I.”
Mar 14:30 And יהושע said to him, “Truly, I say to you that today, this night, before the cock shall crow twice, you shall deny Me three times.”
Mar 14:31 But he spoke more strongly, “If I have to die with You, I shall not deny You!” And they all said the same.
Mar 14:32 And they came to a place called Gethsemane. And He said to His taught ones, “Sit here while I pray.”
Mar 14:33 And He took with Him Kĕpha, and Yaʽaqoḇ, and Yoḥanan, and He began to be greatly amazed, and to be deeply distressed.
Mar 14:34 And He said to them, “My being is exceedingly grieved, even to death. Stay here and watch.”
Mar 14:35 And He went on a little, and fell on the ground, and was praying that if it were possible, the hour might pass from Him.
Mar 14:36 And He said, “Abba, Father, all is possible for You. Make this cup pass from Me. Yet not what I desire, but what You desire.”
Mar 14:37 And He came and found them sleeping, and said to Kĕpha, “Shimʽon, are you sleeping? You were not able to watch one hour!
Mar 14:38 “Watch and pray, lest you enter into trial. The spirit indeed is eager, but the flesh is weak.”
More about the word Olam עוֹלָם
Hebrew words used for space are also used for
time. The Hebrew word qedem means “east” but
is also the same word for the “past.” The Hebrew
word olam literally means “beyond the horizon.”
When looking off in the far distance it is difficult to
make out any details and what is beyond that
horizon cannot be seen. This concept is the olam.
The word olam is also used for time for the distant
past or the distant future as a time that is difficult
to know or perceive. This word is frequently
translated as “eternity” meaning a continual span
of time that never ends. In the Hebrew mind it is
simply what is at or beyond the horizon, a very
distant time. A common phrase in the Hebrew is
“l’olam va’ed” and is usually translated as “forever
and ever,” but in the Hebrew it means “to the
distant horizon and again” meaning “a very
distant time and even further.”
From H5956; properly concealed, that is, the vanishing point; generally time out of mind (past or future), that is, (practically) eternity; frequentative adverbially (especially with prepositional prefix) always: – always (-s), ancient (time), any more, continuance, eternal, (for, [n-]) ever (-lasting, -more, of old), lasting, long (time), (of) old (time), perpetual, at any time, (beginning of the) world (+ without end). Compare H5331, H5703.
From G165; perpetual (also used of past time, or past and future as well): – eternal, for ever, everlasting, world (began).
“And to the man He said, “Because you have listened to the voice of your wife, and have eaten of the tree of which I commanded you, saying, ‘Do not eat of it’: “Cursed is the ground because of you, in toil you are to eat of it all the days of your life, and the ground shall bring forth thorns and thistles for you, and you shall eat the plants of the field. By the sweat of your face you are to eat bread until you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken. For dust you are, and to dust you return.” Berĕshith (Genesis) 3:17-19
After the fall from grace in the garden there were two or more animals sacrificed to clothe them and that was the beginning of the Priesthood. That was when the King covered His creation who had lost their original covering.
“And what great nation is there that has such laws and righteous right-rulings like all this Torah which I set before you this day?” “Only, guard yourself, and guard your life diligently, lest you forget the Words your eyes have seen, and lest they turn aside from your heart all the days of your life. And you shall make them known to your children and your grandchildren.” Deḇarim (Deuteronomy) 4:8-9
Exodus 21-23 has YaHuWaH’s judgements in them.
“In this way Elohim, resolving to show even more clearly to the heirs of promise the unchangeableness of His purpose, confirmed it by an oath, so that by two unchangeable matters in which it is impossible for Elohim to lie, we might have strong encouragement, we who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the expectation set before us, which we have as an anchor of the life, both safe and firm, and entering into that within the veil, where יהושע has entered as a forerunner for us, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Malkitseḏeq.” Iḇ`rim (Hebrews) 6:17-20
“And I saw a great white throne and Him who was sitting on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away, and no place was found for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before the throne, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged from what was written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and She’ol gave up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. And Death and She’ol were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And if anyone was not found written in the Book of Life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.” Ḥazon (Revelation) 20:11-15
YaHuWaH is constantly looking towards the teaching that cleanses. If you do not have the pattern and you do not watch over that which was handed down eternally you cannot go into the reign.
This is what the perpetual judgement is supposed to produce – The Melchizedek Priesthood.
“Come as you are” is another lie from church!
Come to the altar and be saved is an unscriptural lie from the enemy. No one may come to the altar unclean!
It is the responsibility of Priests in Yah to clean people up before presenting them at the altar. How do we clean them up? With the Torah! Teach people about repentance, immersion and being filled with the Set-Apart Ruach so that they will not be blind and stumble but walk upright according to His instructions.
Mal 1:6 A son honors his father and a slave his master. And if then I am the father, where is My honor? And if I am a Master, where is My reverence?’ says YaHuWaH of hosts to you temple officials who despise My name. And you say, ‘In what way have we despised Your name?’
Mal 1:7 Offering polluted food on My altar and they say, ‘In what way have we polluted You?’ By saying, ‘The table of YaHuWaH is despised.’
Polluted fruit means presenting people at the altar who are unclean. People who are not in covenant with ABBA.
Mal 1:8 And when you approach with the blind for slaughter, is it not evil? And when you approach with the lame and sick, is it not evil? Bring it then to your governor! Would he be pleased with you? Would he accept your presence?” says YaHuWaH of hosts.
Mat 3:1 Moreover in those days Yahuchanan the Immerser came preaching in the wilderness of Yahudah
Mat 3:2 and saying, “Repent! For the kingdom of the sky has come near!”
Mat 3:3 For this is who was spoken of by the prophet YashaYahuw saying, “A voice crying aloud in the wilderness, ‘Prepare the way of YaHuWaH! Make His paths straight!'”
Luk 24:45 Then He opened their minds to understand the Scriptures,
Luk 24:46 and said to them, “Thus it has been written, and so it was necessary for the Messiah to suffer and to rise again from the dead the third day,
Luk 24:47 and that repentance and forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in His Name to all nations, beginning at Yerushalayim.
Act 2:36 “Therefore let all the house of Yisra’ĕl know for certain that Elohim has made this יהושע, whom you impaled, both Master and Messiah.”
Act 2:37 And having heard this, they were pierced to the heart, and said to Kĕpha and the rest of the emissaries, “Men, brothers, what shall we do?”
Act 2:38 And Kĕpha said to them, “Repent, and let each one of you be immersed in the Name of יהושע Messiah for the forgiveness of sins.1 And you shall receive the gift of the Set-apart Spirit. Footnote: 1See 2:40, 3:19, 3:26.
Act 2:39 “For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are far off, as many as יהוה our Elohim shall call.”
Act 2:40 And with many other words he earnestly witnessed and urged them, saying, “Be saved from this crooked generation.”1 Footnote: 1Jer. 51:6, Phil. 2:15, Rev. 18:4.
Act 2:41 Then those, indeed, who gladly received his word, were immersed. And on that day about three thousand beings were added to them.
Act 2:42 And they were continuing steadfastly in the teaching of the emissaries, and in the fellowship, and in the breaking of bread, and in the prayers.
There is a pattern from Adam until now where repentance, immersion and being filled with ABBA’s Set-Apart Ruach. The Set-Apart Ruach leads and guides us into all truth and helps us to stay on the path and endure until the end.
