Chapter 3(Unless otherwise stated, The Scriptures Translation is used.) David pondered his own existence. Psalm 8:4-9 Psalm 8:4 What is man, that You remember him? And the son of man, that you visit him? Psalm 8:5 For thou hast made him a little less than Elohim and has crowned him with esteem and splendor. Psalm 8:6 Thou made him rule over the works of Your hands; You put all things under his feet. Psalm 8:7 All sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field, Psalm 8:8 The birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, passing through the paths of the seas. Psalm 8:9 Oh Master, how excellent is your Name in all the earth! Why indeed! Do you know why you were created or the true purpose for your birth? Most professing Christians think it is to live a righteous life; die and go to heaven. Does Scripture really say that? Please notice the truth as stated in the next four scriptural examples: John 3:13 And no one has gone up into heaven, except he who came down from the heaven, except he who came down from the heaven – the Son of Adam. Ecclesiastes 9:5 (King James Version) For the living know that they shall die; but the dead know not anything, neither have they any more a reward: for the memory of them is forgotten. Why is David, a man after Elohim’s own heart not in heaven? Acts 2:29,34-35 Acts 2:29 Men and brothers, let me speak boldly to you of the ancestor David, that he died and is buried, and his tomb is with us to this day. Acts 2:34 For David did not ascend into the heavens: but he himself said, The Master said unto my Master, “Sit at my right hand, Acts 2:35 Until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet.” Psalm 37:11 But the meek ones shall inherit the earth: and shall delight themselves in plenty of peace. Which is it? Are we up in heaven or on earth after we die? What is the reward of the saved? Where is the Kingdom of Heaven, on earth or in heaven?

David pondered his own existence.
Psalm 8:4 What is man, that You remember him? And the son of man, that you visit him?
Psalm 8:5 For thou hast made him a little less than Elohim and has crowned him with esteem and splendor.
Psalm 8:6 Thou made him rule over the works of Your hands; You put all things under his feet.

Psalm 8:8 The birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, passing through the paths of the seas.
Psalm 8:9 Oh Master, how excellent is your Name in all the earth!
Why indeed! Do you know why you were created or the true purpose for your birth? Most professing Christians think it is to live a righteous life; die and go to heaven. Does Scripture really say that? Please notice the truth as stated in the next four scriptural examples:
John 3:13 And no one has gone up into heaven, except he who came down from the heaven, except he who came down from the heaven – the Son of Adam.
Ecclesiastes 9:5 (KJV) For the living know that they shall die; but the dead know not anything, neither have they any more a reward: for the memory of them is forgotten.
Why is David, a man after Elohim’s own heart not in heaven?
Acts 2:29 Men and brothers, let me speak boldly to you of the ancestor David, that he died and is buried, and his tomb is with us to this day.

Acts 2:35 Until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet.”
Psalm 37:11 But the meek ones shall inherit the earth: and shall delight themselves in plenty of peace.
Which is it? Are we up in heaven or on earth after we die? What is the reward of the saved? Where is the Kingdom of Heaven, on earth or in heaven?
Revelation 20:4 And I saw thrones – and they sat on them, and judgment was given to them – and the lives of those who had been beheaded because of the witness they bore to Messiah, and because the word of Elohim, and who did not worship the beast, nor his image, and did not receive his mark upon their foreheads, or upon their hands. And they lived and reigned with Messiah for a thousand years
Where do the millennium and the restoration of all things take place?
Acts 3:20-21 (KJV)
Acts 3:20 And he shall send Messiah, which before was preached unto you:
Acts 3:21 Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which Elohim has spoken by the mouth of all his prophets since the world began. (Please notice it says, all things).
Revelation 2:25 But hold fast what you have until I come.
Revelation 2:26 And he who overcomes, and guards My works until the end, to him I shall give authority over the nations,
Are there nations in heaven? There is no such verse throughout Scripture.
Revelation 5:7 And he came and took the scroll out of the right hand of Him sitting on the throne.
Revelation 5:8 And when he took the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each holding a harp, and golden bowls filled with incense, which are the prayers of the set-apart ones.
Revelation 5:9 And they sang a renewed song, saying, “You are worthy to take the scroll, and to open its seals, because you were slain, and have redeemed us to Elohim by Your blood out of every tribe, and tongue, and people, and nation,
Revelation 5:10 And made us sovereigns and priests to our Elohim, and we shall reign upon the earth.
This is also very easy to understand scripture, though many will disagree and have different beliefs and values. Remember the name of this book is the End of The New World Order, From a Scriptural Perspective. Others are entitled to their beliefs, and I love and respect all men. I expect the same in return.
Before I continue, I need to digress because it is true, scientific evidence of past civilizations on earth and different types of spirit beings such as Serafins, Kera bins, the Elders in the throne room, Nephelines, and other skeletal evidence which pre-dates mankind. Earlier in the book, I mentioned a scripture that talks about a re-creation of the earth after Satan’s rebellion, and making the earth suitable to sustain mankind.
Genesis 1:1 In the beginning Elohim created heaven and the earth.
Genesis 1:2 And the earth came to be formless, and empty, and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of Elohim was moving upon the face of the waters.
Simply put, human beings are a different life form and created for a completely different purpose than the other life forms. Human beings have different DNA and are both physical and spiritual beings. Humans are made in the image of their Creator.
Genesis 1:26 And Elohim said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over the livestock, and over all of the earth, and over all the creeping creatures that creep on the ground.
Genesis 1:27 And Elohim created the man in His image, in the image of Elohim He created him – male and female He created them.
Man is not only in Elohim’s image, but man has the potential to have Elohim’s Spirit, Mind, Character, and even more as we will see later in this chapter. This explanation leaves room for past civilizations and other non-human beings that pre-date man. So, how old is mankind? On my website, Yah’sAssembIy.org, I have information on research done by credible scientists, and to their amazement, by studying the DNA of human mitochondria, they prove man to be only 6,000 years old which is exactly what the Scriptures say.
Scriptures can be divided in three ways; 1/3rd is history, 1/3rd is prophecy, and 1/3rd tells us how to live a righteous life. It is a gift of truth and an instruction manual on how to live a healthy, happy, and prosperous life. So why is mankind and planet earth now facing extinction, not in decades, but is in the process right now, as I have already stated?
Mankind has experienced and tried every form of government and practiced every kind of religion and for all our technology, we are no better off. There is no lasting peace, we are not healthier, most of mankind is not very prosperous, and our environment is not greener, more sustainable, or cleaner. This book is to prove to you why mankind continues to fail and why the New World Order will fail too! There is no better, crueler or harder teacher than the human experience. Man can not seem to learn from the mistakes of the past, and he keeps trying the same things over and over and keeps getting the same results. As we all know, that is the definition of insanity. Killing two-thirds of humanity will not fix the problem either. General Douglas McArthur’s quote from a speech to the U.S. Congress gives us some good information:
“Men, since the beginning of time, have sought peace. Various methods through the ages have been attempted to devise an international process to prevent or settle disputes between nations. From the very start, workable methods were found as far as individual citizens were concerned, but the mechanics of an instrumentality of larger, international scope have never been successful. Military alliances, balances of power, Leagues of Nations, all, in turn, failed, leaving the only path to be by way of the crucible of war. The utter destructiveness of war now blocks out this alternative. We have had our last chance. If we will not devise some greater and more equitable system, Armageddon will be at our door. The problem basically is theological and involves a spiritual recrudescence and improvement in human character that will synchronize with our almost matchless advances in science, art, literature, and all the material and cultural developments of the past 2000 years. It must be of the spirit if we are to save the flesh!
McArthur has nailed it! A Spiritual Change, is a change in human nature from a carnal or fleshly mind and spirit to a true, transformation of the heart that has the Creator’s Set-Apart Spirit dwelling in it – what the world calls His Holy Spirit.
Jeremiah 31:31 See, the days are coming, declares the Master that I will make a renewed covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:
Jeremiah 31:32 Not like the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I strengthened their hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, my covenant which they broke, although I was a husband to them, saith the Master:
Jeremiah 31:33 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, declares the Master, I shall put my Torah in their inward parts, and write it on their hearts. And I shall be their Elohim, and they shall be My people.
Ancient Israel failed because the majority of them did not have His Spirit – only the elders, priests, prophets, kings and a select few picked for leadership positions ordained with the Laying on of Hands. See Deuteronomy 5:29 Oh that they had such a heart in them, to fear Me and to guard all My commands always so that it might be well with them and with their children forever!
It takes the power of His Spirit to keep His laws.
Deuteronomy 5:29 O that they had were such a heart in them, to fear me, and guard all my commands always, that it might be well with them and with their children forever!
These verses substantiate what I have already said – man can’t govern himself without the Creator, His Spirit, and His laws. Jeremiah 17:9-10.
Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is crooked above all, and desperately sick, who shall know it?
Jeremiah 17:10 I, the Master, search the heart, I try the kidneys and give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his deeds.
Jeremiah 10:23 O Master, I know the way of man is not in himself: It is not for man who walks to direct his own steps.
This describes the carnal man without the begettal of His Spirit.
Romans 8:6-9 (KJV)
Romans 8:6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
Romans 8:7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against Elohim (God): for it is not subject to the law of Elohim (God), neither indeed can be.
Romans 8:8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please Elohim.
Romans 8:9 But you are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of Elohim dwells in you. Now if any man has not the Spirit of Messiah, he is none of His.
The carnal or fleshly mind is enmity or hostile towards its Creator. That is why many think the law is done away with. This is impossible if we remove physical and spiritual laws, we end up with what we have today – a world in chaos or free-fall facing extinction. Once again, I must refer to my website (YahsAssembly.org) where the subject of the law being done away is covered very thoroughly, however, I will share just a sample with you so you can study it further if you believe the “law is truly done away.”
Acts 24:14 (KJV) But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the Elohim of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets:
I John 2:4 (KJV) He that saith, I know Him and keeps not His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
Again, do not believe me or what others say, believe what the Creator says and prove it for yourself. This is your responsibility.
I Thessalonians 5:21 Prove them all; hold fast what is good.
Romans 8:9 (KJV) But you are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of Yah dwells in you. Now if any man has not the Spirit of Messiah, he is none of his.
Romans 8:9 is the definition of a True Believer. You must have His Spirit to have a change of heart and the power to change your human nature, to develop the mind and character of Messiah.
Philippians 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Messiah: (The end of the New World Order).
Yes! I tell you these things so we can understand one of the Great Lessons of history as McArthur said why man has failed and why the New World Order will fail too. Human nature must change!
Look at the world today – divide and conquer. It all started with Satan dividing the messengers (angels) against their Creator. Adam and Eve failed and so on. It won’t stop because it works. It is Satan’s methodology – racism, war, political parties, different religions, etc. The globalists understand this and that is why the goal of Revelation13, that of a one-world government, a one-world religion, and a one-world economic system, done their way, will fail. Their fix will be worse than the problem because human nature must change.
Let’s get back to the story of man. It should be clear now why mankind has failed. He must be converted (changed) to fulfill his destiny. I will explain this at the end of this chapter. Man must also be converted to have the power to obey and understand His laws and His real plan of salvation.
These verses, I Corinthians 2:9-16 explain better than any other I know of the differences between the unconverted mind and the converted mind. These verses should not be just read but studied.
Before you read them, let me give you the overview:
I Corinthians 2:9–16 Please notice that only those who have His Spirit can truly understand why they were created and what man’s true destiny is. These scriptures cannot be discerned by the spirit in man alone. There are two spirits involved here – the spirit in man and Elohim’s Set-apart Spirit (Holy Spirit). There has been scientific research done on the spirit in man. It only imparts physical knowledge and intelligence greater than that of animals, mammals, birds, fish, etc. Man’s spirit also contains the energy that imparts life. I Corinthians 2:14, Man, without Yah’s Spirit cannot understand the deep things of Yah, because they are spiritually discerned. I Corinthians 2:15-16 – we can discern all things because we have His Spirit and the Mind of Messiah.
I Corinthians 2:9-16 (KJV) All Verses.
I Corinthians 2:9 But as it has been written, Eye hath not seen, and ear has not heard, nor have entered into the heart of man, what Elohim has prepared for those that love Him.
I Corinthians 2:10 But Elohim has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all matters, even the depths of Elohim.
I Corinthians 2:11 For who among men knows the thoughts of a man, except the spirit of the man that is in him? So also, the thoughts of Elohim, no one has known, except the Spirit of Elohim.
I Corinthians 2:12 And we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit that is from Elohim: in order to know what Elohim has favorably given us.
I Corinthians 2:13 which things also we speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches, but which the Set-apart Spirt teaches, comparing spiritual matters with spiritual matters.
I Corinthians 2:14 But the natural man does not receive the matters of the Spirit of Elohim: for they are foolishness to him: and he is unable to know them because they are spiritually discerned.
I Corinthians 2:15 But he who is spiritual discerns indeed all matters, but he, himself is discerned by no one.
I Corinthians 2:16 For “Who has known the mind of Elohim? Who shall instruct Him? But we have the mind of Messiah.
So, how does one receive the gift of His Spirit? I have a study paper on my website entitled Immersion According to Scripture. It is about 20 pages and needs to be studied prayerfully. Some worldly churches believe all you must do is just believe that our Creator is trying to save everyone now. My immersion study explains in great detail why that is not what Scripture actually says. I will share some scriptures now that will lead you in the right direction for further study. It is important that you study these things so when the anti-messiah comes, you will not be deceived.
2Corinthians 11:4 is a warning to all of us.
2Corinthians 11:4 (KJV) For, indeed if he who is coming proclaims another Messiah, whom we have not proclaimed, or if you receive a different spirit, which you have not received, or a different Good News, which you have not accepted, you put up with it well enough!
This scripture is a warning to be careful what is being preached to you – so that you are not deceived, especially if you have already had the truth preached to you.
Matthew 13:9-11 (KJV)
Matthew 13:9 He who has ears to hear, let him hear!
Matthew 13:10 And the taught ones came, and said to Him, why do you speak to them in parables?
Matthew 13:11 And He answering said unto them, “Because it has been given to you to know the secrets of the reign of the heavens, but to them, it has not been given.
Do these verses sound to you like He is trying to save everyone now or that everyone is being called at this time? Those who are being called at this time are being given eyes to see (spiritual sightedness) ears to hear and a heart that can understand (verses 14-15.)
Matthew 13:14 And in them the prophecy of Isaiah is completely filled which says, Hearing you shall hear, and by no means shall understand; and seeing you shall see, and by no means perceive,
Matthew 13:15 for the heart of this people has become thickened, and their ears are hard of hearing, and their eyes they have closed, lest they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, lest they should understand with their heart, and turn back, and I heal them.”
True conversion requires a true miracle for that to happen. Not everyone is being called at this time. Those being called now are being given eyes to see (spiritual sightedness), ears to hear and a heart that can understand. Only our Father can open a mind and a heart.
On the Day of Pentecost when Our Father’s Spirit was given to the New Covenant Assembly, Peter was very plain that people must be called, and not everyone was being called at that time, nor are they today.
Acts 2:38 And Peter said unto them, “Repent and let each one of you be immersed in the name of Messiah for the forgiveness of sins. And you shall receive the gift of the Set-apart Spirit.
Acts 2:39 For the promise is to you, and to your children, and to all that are far off, as many as the Master our Elohim shall call.
Also, notice in verse 38 Peter says Repent. Repent means to change what you are doing, i.e. stop sinning.
When the Pharisees came to John to be immersed, did he say, glad to see you – just believe, really? He said no! Who asked you to flee from the wrath to come – first bring forth fruit meet for repentance?
Matthew 3:7 seeing many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his immersion, he said to them, “Brood of adders!” Who warned you to flee from the wrath?
Matthew 3:8 Bear, therefore fruits worthy of repentance,
The basic Doctrines of the Renewed Covenant Assembly are found in Hebrews 6:1 & 2. Yes, you must be a believer and you have to repent of dead works. What are dead works? Sin is dead works.
Hebrews 6:1 Therefore having left the word of the beginning of the Messiah, let us go on to perfection: not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of belief toward Yah,
Hebrews 6:2 Of the doctrine of immersions, and of laying on of hands, and of the resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.
Yes, you must believe, but you also must repent of dead works. What are dead works? Sin is dead works. So, we must stop sinning.
Acts 5:32 And we are his witnesses to these matters; and so also is the Set-apart Spirit, whom Elohim has given to those who obey Him.
Yes, we are saved by favor (grace).
Ephesians 2:8 For by favor you have been saved, through belief, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of Elohim.
Ephesians 2:10 For we are His workmanship, created in Messiah unto good works, which Elohim prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
We were also created to perform good works.
Romans 6:2 Let it not be! How shall we who died to sin still live in it?
Romans 6:3 Or do you not know that as many of us as were immersed into Messiah were immersed into His death?
Sin is dead works. We were created unto good works.
James 2:26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so also the belief is dead without the works.
Many professing believers think they are saved because they think all they must do is just “believe” to receive his favor (grace) and the law is done away. The correct doctrine is not just “grace” but law and favor (grace). Keeping the law will not save us, but not keeping it will disqualify us from our opportunity for salvation. Notice Galatians 5:19-21.
Galatians 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are well known, which are these; adultery, whoring, uncleanness, indecency,
Galatians 5:20 Idolatry, drug sorcery, hatred, quarrels, jealousies, fits of rage, selfish ambitions, dissensions, factions,
Galatians 5:21 Envy, murders, drunkenness, wild parties, and the like – of which I forewarn you, even as I also said before, that those who practice such as these shall not inherit the reign of Elohim.
These are the works of the flesh. Paul is very plain. Most of these things mentioned are commandments (i.e., the law). So, keeping the works of the law won’t save you, but not keeping or breaking them, Paul says will cause us to lose our spiritual inheritance. So, what is our inheritance? Why were we created? Why isn’t everyone being called now and in the process of being saved? See my website series on The Resurrections.
There is no way to know long the universe has been in a state of rebellion and spiritual warfare, but it will end when Elohim has completed His greatest Creation – the replication of Himself! Some people think that this is complete heresy, but the Scriptures say otherwise. I John 4:8 is the mind and character of our Creator.
I John 4:8 The one who does not love knows not Elohim; for Elohim is love.
This is a big subject, but we need to narrow it down and know why He created us. For love to be made perfect and become perfect, it must be a choice of one’s own free will. One of the greatest gifts our Father has given us is free moral agency. See Deuteronomy 30:18-20.
Deuteronomy 30:18 I have declared to you today, that you shall certainly perish, you shall not prolong your days in the land which you are passing over the Jordan to enter and to possess.
Deuteronomy 30:19 I have called the heavens and earth as witnesses today against you; I have set before you life and death, blessing and the curse. Therefore, you shall choose life, so that you live, both you and your seed.
Deuteronomy 30:20 to love the Master thy Elohim, to obey his voice, and to cling to Him – for He is your life, and the length of your days – to dwell in the land which the Master swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.
This was a public proclamation, a historical record that still is in effect today.
John 14:15 If you love me, you shall keep my commands.
If we love Him? Real love is voluntary. Elohim could have created us like robots and the globalists want us to be chipped causing transhumanism, forcing us into obedience. That is the mind of Satan not the mind of the Messiah. Our heavenly Father wants the real deal. He wants us to love Him of our own free will. This is perfect love and can only be developed through the conversion process. This is the only way that Elohim can be assured we will not become another Satan or another rebellious fallen one. Character is a pattern of behavior developed throughout our trials and the testing of our character. It is not instant or automatic. Notice what I Peter 1:3-7 has to say.
I Peter 1:3-7 Blessed be the Elohim and Father of our Master Messiah, who according to His great compassion has caused us to be born again to a living expectation through the resurrection of Messiah from the dead,
I Peter 1:4 to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled, and unfading, having been kept in the heavens for you,
I Peter 1:5 Who are protected by the power of Elohim through belief for a deliverance ready to be revealed in the last time.
I Peter 1:6 Wherein you exalt, even though for a little while if need be, you have been grieved through manifold trials,
I Peter 1:7 in order that the proving of your belief – much more precious than gold that perishes and proven by fire, might be found unto praise and respect and esteem at the revelation of Messiah.
It takes a lifetime of going through the conversion process to become perfect in the Messiah.
Matthew 5:48 Therefore be perfect, as your Father in heavens is perfect.
Hebrews 6:1 Therefore having left the word of the beginning of the Messiah, let us go on to perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of belief toward Elohim,
Mainstream religion teaches conversion is a one-time event, but it is a process that we must voluntarily submit ourselves to.
Matthew 24:13 But he that shall have endured to the end shall be saved.
That is plain. We must endure a lifetime of trials and tests. It is like a weightlifter. They are not born extra strong. They have to build those muscles. So, we too must build our Spiritual muscles through the power of His Spirit and the conversion process. Here are some examples of this process:
Ephesians 6:10 –18
Ephesians 6:10 For the rest, my brothers, be strong in the Master, and in the mightiness of His strength.
Ephesians 6:11 Put on the complete armor of Elohim, for you to have the power to stand against the schemes of the devil.
Ephesians 6:12 Because we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against authorities, against the world-rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual matters of wickedness in the heavenlies.
Ephesians 6:13 Because of this, take up the complete armor of Elohim, so that you have the power to withstand in the wicked day, and having done all, to stand.
Ephesians 6:14 Stand then, having girded your waist with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
Ephesians 6:15 And having fitted your feet with the preparation of the Good News of peace;
Ephesians 6:16 Above all, having taken up the shield of belief, with which you shall have the power to quench all the burning arrows of the wicked one.
Ephesians 6:17 Take also the helmet of deliverance, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of Elohim.
Ephesians 6:18 Praying at all times with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all of the set-apart ones;
Notice verse 12. I said earlier, who is really in charge of this world. See II Corinthians 4:4.
II Corinthians 4:4 In whom the mighty one of this age has blinded the minds of the unbelieving, so that the enlightening of the Good News of the esteem of Messiah, who is the likeness of Elohim, does not shine on them.
This is spiritual warfare if we are not to fall victims to false religion and the New World Order. It is all about our personal relationship with our Creator. How much time do you spend in prayer, in Scripture study, in meditation and how often do you fast? Do not leave this to others. Prove things to yourself.
Romans 12:1 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.
Romans 12:2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what is that good and well-pleasing, and perfect, desire of Elohim.
That transformation is Metamorphic. A caterpillar goes through it in the cocoon to become a butterfly. If we interfere with the caterpillar’s struggle and process of getting out of the cocoon, it will never fly. Neither will we if we abort the conversion process.
Galatians 4:19 My little children, of whom I am again in birth pains until Messiah is formed in you,
Ephesians 4:13 until we all come to the unity of the belief, and of the knowledge of the Son of Elohim, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the completeness of Messiah:
Ephesians 3:16 In order that he might give you, according to the riches of his esteem, by power strengthened in the inner man through His Spirit,
Ephesians 3:17 that the Messiah might dwell in your hearts through belief – having become rooted and grounded in love,
Ephesians 3:18 in order that you might be strengthened to firmly grasp, with all the set-apart ones, what is the width and length and depth and height,
Ephesians 3:19 to know the love of Messiah which surpasses knowledge, in order that you might be filled to all the completeness of Elohim.
Ephesians 3:20 And to Him that is able to do exceedingly above what we ask or think, according to the power that is working in us,
Romans 8:13 –17
Romans 8:13 For if you live according to the flesh, you are going to die: but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you shall live
Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of Elohim, these are sons of Elohim.
Romans 8:15 For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear; but you received the Spirit of adoption, by whom we cry out “Abba, Father.”
Romans 8:16 The Spirit itself bears witness with our spirit, that we are the children of Elohim :
Romans 8:17 And if children, also heirs; true heirs of Elohim, and co-heirs with Messiah; if indeed we suffer with Him, in order we also be exalted together.
We are His children and heirs, and we must suffer with Him if we are going to be part of His family – eternal, Spirit beings ruling and reigning with Him for a thousand years during the Millennium on the earth.
Revelation 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given to them; and the lives of those who had been beheaded, because of the witness they bore to Elohim, and because of the word of Elohim, and who did not worship the beast, nor his image, and did not receive his mark upon their foreheads or upon their hands. And they lived and reigned with Messiah for a thousand years.
Revelation 5:10 And has made us sovereigns and priests to our Elohim , and we shall reign upon the earth.
There are many other verses that prove we must do more than just believe to fulfill the purpose for which we were created. Elohim wants a family that loves Him voluntarily – a family that has been tried and tested; that will not rebel as Satan did – a family that can help Him rule and reign and restore the earth like it was in the Garden of Eden.
Acts 3:20 And that He sends Messiah, preappointed for you;
Acts 3:21 Whom heaven needs to receive until the times of restitution of all matters, of which Elohim spoke through the mouth of all His set-apart prophets since of old.
There is also another time when others will have their chance to be called and become truly converted and be a part of His family. Messiah wants to marry someone just like Himself, with His mind, His character, and the fully matured fruit of His Spirit. Now is the time when the spiritual body of Messiah is preparing to be at one with the Father and the Son.
John 17:21 so that they all might be one; as You Father are in Me, and I in You, so that they too might be one in us; so that the world might believe that You have sent Me.
John 17:22 And the esteem which you gave me I have given them; so that they might be one, as We are one:
John 17:23 I in them, and You in Me, so that they might be made perfected into one; so that the world knows that You have sent Me, and have loved them, as You have loved Me.
Revelation 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give Him praise, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife prepared herself.
Revelation 19:8 And to her was given to be dressed in fine linen, clean and bright; for the fine linen is the righteousness of the set-apart ones.
Revelation 19:9 And he said to me, Write, Blessed are those who have been called to the marriage supper of the Lamb! And He saith unto me, “These are the true words of Elohim .”
Verse 8 is of particular importance; notice the bride is clothed in white linen which is the righteousness of the Set-apart ones. (saints) So what is righteousness?
Psalm 119:172 My tongue sings of Your Word for all your commands are righteousness.
All His commandments are righteousness. The bride keeps the commandments and does not appear spiritually naked before Messiah, her husband. In verse 9 she is called to the marriage supper. Called, in the Greek means a personal invitation. Not everyone at this time has been called. Few people are willing to totally surrender to the will of their Creator.
Luke 21.33 The heaven and earth shall pass away, but My words shall by no means pass away.
Matthew 16:24 Then Messiah said to His taught ones, “If anyone wishes to come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his stake, and follow me.
Matthew 16:25 For whoever wishes to save his life shall lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake shall find it.
Matthew 16:26 For what is a man profited if he gains all the world, and looses his own life? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his life?
Matthew 16:27 For the son of Adam is going to come in the esteem of His Father with His messengers, and then He shall reward each according to his works.
People are too self-indulgent and self-centered rather than Yah-centered! Some may think this is unfair, but didn’t Messiah sacrifice everything for us? Are we not to walk as He walked?
I John 2:4 The one that says, I know Him, and does not guard His commands, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
All of this is the real reason we were created. It is still always a choice. It is a lifetime commitment, not just a one-time event! We are either part of the problem or part of the solution. Study, pray, meditate, fast, and ask for His calling. Ask Him to open your mind and change your heart.
