Psalms 111:10-“The fear of YAHUAH (God) is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endures forever.” Why is this verse significant is because for you to get wisdom, you must have fear for the highest. It is the first step, and a person with good understanding will keep YAHUAH’s commandments. Where else does it talks about that is in Proverbs 1:7-“The fear of YAHUAH is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” Now, a person with no fear for YAHUAH has no wisdom and a person without wisdom is a fool. What else you need is how to get the understanding reading the word of YAH (God). Isaiah 28:9-10 “Whom shall he teach knowledge? And whom shall he make to understand doctrine? Them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little.” With all that said let’s get into it. But, before I go on I will say if you don’t care about getting any understanding of the word just take the blue pill and stay asleep in the Matrix. However, if you’re hungry for the word take the red pill, and you will see how deep the rabbit hole goes. Here we go!
Matthew 3:1-17 but I’m going through it verse by verse. Let’s go to verse 1-“In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judea.” Who was John the Baptist preaching to? If we go to Acts 13:23-“Of this man’s seed has YAHUAH according to his promise raised unto Israel a Saviour, YAHUSHA (Whom they called Jesus).” Now, you may argue and said it’s not true that YAHUSHA came and died for all of us. Let’s clear that by going to Matthew 15:24-“But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” He made it very clear who he came for, and you can find other references in the New and Old Testament. Remember that the door was opened to everyone else after the death of YAHUSHA (Jesus) through Cornelius in Acts 10. So, we are clear that John the Baptist was preaching to no other but the children of Israel. Verse 2-“And saying, Repent ye: for the Kingdom of YAHUAH is at hand.” In this verse, John is telling them to Repent. The next question is how one does Repent? Is it by going to the altar and have a pastor pray over your head? What does it mean to Repent? Acts 3:19-“Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of YAHUAH.” So, this verse is saying to repent is to be converted. To be converted means cause to change in form. What does that mean is when you repent you don’t turn around and do the sins again. It means that you change, turn, transform and not doing it again.
If you remember the story of the woman that was brought to YAHUSHA(Jesus) for adultery what did He said to the woman when everyone left in John 8:11-“She said, No man, ADONAI(Lord). And YAHUSHA said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.” Once you ask our Father YAHUAH for forgiveness and repent, you don’t go back and do it again. The next question will be what converts a person? Psalms 19:7-“The law of YAHUAH is Perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of YAHUAH is sure, making wises the simple.” So, what converts a person is not going forward to the altar for the pastor to pray over your head. But the Law of YAHUAH (God) is what converts the soul. So, you find certain pastors are telling their followers the law is done away with. You can’t be converted without the law. What is the law? Let’s check out a few in Romans 13:8-10 but in verse 8-” Owe no man anything, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.“ In the same verse 2, it references the Kingdom of YAHUAH. The question now is what is the Kingdom and who is it for? Acts 1:6-“When they, therefore, were come together, they asked of him, saying, ADONAI (Lord), wilt thou at this time restore again the Kingdom to Israel?” I’m sure this verse is self-explanatory as far as for who is the Kingdom for. In case you’re wondering it does include everyone else who are converted and keeping YAHUAH’s law until the end.
The question remains will everyone else be equal with the children of Israel in the Kingdom of heaven? But first, let us find out where the kingdom of heaven will be. Are we all going up above like we’ve been told? Psalms 115:16-“The heavens, even the heavens, are YAHUAH’S: but the earth has he given to the children of men.” Wait, what? So, pastors been lying telling us we’re going up above in heaven? I know, it was a shock for me as well. So we’re clear where the Kingdom will be not above in the sky. The funny thing is we read it every day and even say the prayer in Matthew 6:10-“Your kingdom come. Your will be done in earth, as in the heavens.” Where is the Kingdom come, in earth. I know some of you still don’t believe, but I have more verses I’m sure many of you are familiar. Revelation 21:10-27 let’s see verse 10-“And he carried me away in the RUACH (Spirit) to a great and high mountain, and showed me that great city, the holy Yerushalayim (Jerusalem), descending out of heaven from YAHUAH (God).” Wait, so that means men’s Kingdom will be on earth not up above like we’ve been told by many preachers. As you read the rest of the verses it describes the splendor of the new Jerusalem and who is it for. And yes, there will be other nations there aside from the children of Israel read Isaiah 60:10-22 tells it all. After you read Isaiah, you will have questions and ask why? This is why in Obadiah 1:15″ For the day of YAHUAH is near upon all the heathen: as you have done, it shall be done unto you: your reward shall return upon your own head.”
Remember, I said those who fear the highest and keep his commandments would be with the children of Israel as well. So, that’s good news, in Isaiah 56:1-8 but verse 6-7″Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to YAHUAH, to serve him and to love the name of YAHUAH, to be his servants, everyone that guards the Sabbath from polluting it, and takes hold of my covenants; Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer.”
Revelation 13:9-10-“If any man has an ear, let him hear. He that leads into captivity shall go into captivity: he that kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.” It is plain and simple what you saw you shall reap. Now, how do you get to the Kingdom? Matthew 19:17-“And he said unto him, why do you call me good? There is none good but one, that is, YAHUAH: but if you will enter into life, guard the commandments.” Know this; there is no eternal life for you if you don’t keep the commandments. That’s why you should not listen to pastors who are telling you the that the law is done away with. You can find some of the laws in Leviticus 19:1-37.
Continuing in Matthew 3: 6-10 it talks about Confessing sins see 1 John 3:4. The tree in verse 10 represent people and see Ezekiel 31:8-9. How to produce good fruit see Romans 7: 12- “Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good.” What is good fruit is the commandment? In Matthew 3:11-Immerse in fire Jeremiah 23:29 saying his word is like as a fire. Matthew 3:12 the chaff are those who don’t follow the law. What happens when you don’t keep the law? See Matthew 13:49-50. The study is very long, and I hope that you learn something from it.
I want you to remember what is important here. Ecclesiastes 12:13 -“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear Yah, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For Yah shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.”
With this note I say Shalem. I hope this opens your eyes and if it does leave a comment.
