Is Heaven Still There?
For amein I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one yod or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the Torah, till all be fulfilled.Matthew 5:18 Cepher
David agrees with Jesus again. He must have known the Messiah would be pro Torah and that the Torah was for all time. Jeremiah knew it. Paul, yes, Paul, knew it.
Sorry, but if He didn’t he would be guilty of preaching a new gospel. He even warned against that.
even though we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you any “good news” other than that which we preached to you, let him be cursed.Galatians 1:8
Why wouldn’t David want forever? Why wouldn’t he choose liberty-freedom?
Why give back a gift?
In the covenant, there is an agreement. The same applies with the old covenant and the new (renewed) covenant. God’s part + our part. The part about the new covenant that most people misunderstand, is all of it.
But this shall be the covenant that I will cut with the house of Yashar’el; After those days, says Yahuah, I will put my Torah in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their Elohiym, and they shall be my people.Jeremiah 31:33 Cepher
- The “who.” Israel. Are you in? Or out?
- Torah – in our hearts. Have you accepted or rejected Torah.
- He will be our God, and we will be His people.
There is a new Kingdom which is the renewed throne of David (Messiah Ben David). We will be there. However, those who accept the inheritance of Salvation but rejecting Torah in our hearts puts us in an interesting class of believers according to the Messiah.
Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven.Matthew 5:19 Cepher
David was forgiven, and He is considered Great.
The LORD has sought out a man after His own heart and appointed Him ruler of His people.1 Samuel 13:14
When I run, I challenge myself to go farther and run more efficiently. I’m happy to see the finish line. I’m glad to reach the goal. But if my goal is to only be at the finish line, I could take a car, or a bus, or a boat. But if the walk (or run) is part of the journey, I know that each step was made with my feet, through the power of God. If I took a golf cart, no one’s giving me a medal. Some people might even call me a thief or at least dishonest to myself and everyone else.
Messiah is the gate. We must, of course, come to YHWH through Messiah. If not, we are a thief or a liar. Once I have come to Him, I want His Torah. And I want all of Him, forever.
Father, please forgive me through your grace through your Son. I receive my inheritance of Salvation and I long to be in your presence in your house. I receive your instructions, I receive your feast and cherish your wisdom and light to carry me on the path.
Let me not stray. Keep me from evil that I may dwell in your New Jerusalem. Amen.
