Now Is The Day Of Salvation
2 Corinthians 6:2 “(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)”
There are those who teach that there is only one period of time in which mankind can receive salvation, and they believe that we are now in that period of time. They believe that if mankind does not accept the gift of salvation now, they are doomed to burn in an eternal hellfire. It is true that after Yahuwshuwah came and died for the sins of repentant mankind that “a” day of salvation began for some among mankind, but this is not the “only” day of salvation.
A Chosen Special And Peculiar People
Deuteronomy 7:6 “For thou art an holy people unto Yahuwah thy Alahayam: Yahuwah thy Alahayam hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.”
Deuteronomy 14:2 “For thou art an holy people unto Yahuwah thy Alahayam, and Yahuwah hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth.”
With the exception of a few (like Mashah/Moses, Aharuwn/Aaron, and Marayam/Miriam), most of the children of Yahsharahal, the Great Multitude, and the foreigners who entered the old covenant were chosen as a special people to keep the laws of Yahuwah in the flesh from a carnal perspective and not a spiritual perspective. Most of them were not given the Holy Spirit of Yahuwah to help them to observe the laws of Yahuwah. They never had the Holy Spirit dwelling in them. They received physical salvation from the oppression of the Egyptians.
I Shall Resurrect You And Give You A Flesh Body:The Dry Bones Prophecy
Yachazaqaal (Ezekiel) 37:4-6
4 “Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of Yahuwah. 5 Thus saith the Master Yahuwah unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live: 6 And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am Yahuwah.
I Shall Put My Spirit In You
Yachazaqaal (Ezekiel) 37:12-14, 23
12 “Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Master Yahuwah; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Yahsharahal. 13 And ye shall know that I am Yahuwah, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves, 14 And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I Yahuwah have spoken it, and performed it, saith Yahuwah.
23 “Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwellingplaces, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their Alahayam.”
This will be the first time that they ever receive the Holy Spirit of Yahuwah. This will be their first opportunity at spiritual salvation through Yahuwshuwah Mashyach. “This” will be the day of salvation for them.
A Chosen Special And Peculiar People: From All The Nations
1 Peter 2:9-10
9 “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: 10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of Yahuwah: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
This new generation of chosen, special, and peculiar people are called from among all the nations, and they are given the Holy Spirit as a seal and a helper to help them obey the laws of Yahuwah and endure until the end even in the face of death. This group will be resurrected or changed and given an immortal and incorruptible body. There will be no body of flesh for them.
1 Corinthians 15:52-53
52 “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.”
1 Thessalonians 4:16-18
16 “For the Master himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of Yahuwah: and the dead in Mashyach shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Master in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Master. 18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.”
These are the called and chosen dead who died in the faith of Yahuwshuwah and those who survive the great tribulation who accepted the flesh and blood sacrifice of Yahuwshuwah for their sins and were given the Holy Spirit in their lifetime. They will be resurrected or changed and given an immortal body never to die again. Death will have no power over them anymore.
Chosen For What Reason?
1. to be kings to rule over the people in the flesh
2. to be priests over the people in the flesh
3. to be teachers over the people in the flesh
4. to be ministers over the people in the flesh
5. to be immortal soldiers in the army of Yahuwah who will be able to withstand any weapon of mankind and not die
6. to be guardians and protectors over the people in the flesh
7. to be examples to the people in the flesh that salvation is possible for the mankind from all walks of life (“if” I should be fortunate enough to endure to the end, there will be many who know me and when they see me in the glory that Yahuwah promises to bestow on His saints, they will say, “you got to be kidding me!” because they are aware of the rampant sinful life that I have lived in former times, but my appearance will give them encouragement that surely they can receive salvation too, if someone like me was able to make it)
8. to be examples to the people in the flesh that salvation is open to all the nations of mankind (there are those who believe that only a certain race of people can receive salvation, but when they see the many nations and races of people in their immortal glory, then they will know that Yahuwah is not a prejudice Alahayam, and that racial separatism is a lie concocted by mankind)
Amos 9:14 “And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Yahsharahal, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them.”
There Will Be Work That Needs To Be Done
Salvation is not a time of sitting on a cloud in heaven and singing songs while strumming on a harp.
When Yahuwshuwah returns back to the earth for his people, there will be a time of work before the rest. The land will be defiled and need to be cleansed. The dead bodies must be buried. The rubble must be removed. All the abominable things like weapons and any other abominable technologies must be cast out and burned. Men and women with skills in the arts and architecture will be called upon to rebuild the cities and to build a house for Yahuwah. Men and women who have knowledge in the areas of gardening and growing crops will be called upon to teach the people how to make a return back to the basics of living without the technologies which will have played a great part in destroying the heavens and the earth. The people will be defiled and will need to be cleansed by the Holy Spirit and laws of Yahuwah. Yahuwah created mankind to work, but not by the sweat of his brow. Mankind will still work, and the work will be done on earth and not in heaven.
The Unbelievers Who Live By Conscience
13 “(For not the hearers of the law are just before Yahuwah, but the doers of the law shall be justified.14 For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: 15 Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;)”
Those who were not given the law from Yahuwah, but live by their conscience and do righteousness will be justified before Yahuwah. They are unbelievers who have decided in their own hearts that they will not kill or steal and commit other crimes. They do not keep the law because they received it from Yahuwah, but because their own mind tells them these things are wrong.
The Believers With A Seared Conscience
1 Timothy 4:1-2
1 “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;”
This prophecy tells us about a group of people who will have at one time been believers in the faith who depart from the faith who develop a seared conscience. Once believers, but now they have no feelings whatsoever. They will deliberately spread lies and false doctrines even though they know the truth about Yahuwah and Yahuwshuwah.
The Sheep And The Goats
31 “When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: 32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: 33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. 34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: 36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. 37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? 38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? 39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? 40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.”
The Righteous Unbelievers Will Enter The Kingdom Of Yahuwah
Yahuwshuwah is not talking to the saints who will have already been resurrected or changed and already given an immortal and incorruptible body. The saints will appear with Yahuwshuwah and his angels as part of the army of Yahuwah. Yahuwshuwah is talking to the righteous unbelievers who were not called and chosen in their lifetime, but they are the righteous unbelievers who live by the heart and conscience of their mind. They saw human beings in need and they helped them. They are not even aware of the fact that they helped a saint of Yahuwshuwah. They are the righteous unbelievers who will have helped the people of Yahuwah in their time of trouble by giving them drink, food, clothes, and shelter. They are the righteous unbelievers who took care of the people of Yahuwah when they were sick and visited them when they were in prison. The righteous unbelievers will be numbered among the sheep on the right, but they too will be in the flesh. The righteous unbelievers will be welcomed into The Kingdom and given an opportunity to learn the truth. This will be the first day of salvation for the righteous unbelievers.
They Don’t Know Yahuwshuwah
Notice that the righteous unbelievers who are numbered with the sheep do not know Yahuwshuwah, but he knows them because of their righteous treatment of his brethren.
We need to be very careful about our treatment of those who are not in the faith because we are told in advance that they will be one of the doors left open to help us in our time of trouble. They will be willing to help us not because we are the brethren of Yahuwshuwah, but because we are human beings in need. All we have to do is ask and test and see if the person is one of the righteous unbelievers who live by their heart and conscience.
The Beast And The False ProphetWill Be Among “Ye Cursed”
41 “Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Master, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? 45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. 46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.”
19 “And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. 20 “And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.”
The Beast and The False Prophet will not be alone. There will be others whose time to repent will have run out at the appearance of Yahuwshuwah and they all will be cast into the lake of fire.
The Parable Of The Sheep And Goats
The parable of the sheep and the goats reveals that the people will be categorized into different groups when Yahuwshuwah returns to the earth for his people as follows:
1. the sheep will be placed on the right and will enter the Kingdom of Yahuwah
a. the righteous brethren of Yahuwshuwah (the saints)
b. the righteous unbelievers who lived by their heart and conscience and helped the righteous brethren of Yahuwshuwah
2. the goats also called “ye cursed” will be placed on the left
(“ye cursed” will be cast into the lake of fire)
Who Is “Ye Cursed”?
Ye cursed consist of the following:
1. those who know the truth but have rejected it in favor of the lie of, power of, and worship of Shatan (Satan), these are not deceived, they are the ones among mankind who have the knowledge of the truth of Yahuwah and the knowledge of Shatan (Satan), yet they choose Shatan (Satan)
2. the called and chosen who came to know the truth, but fall away from the truth and do not endure to the end (they are those with a seared conscience and they are not deceived)
3. those who choose to receive the mark, number, and name of The Beast and bow down to his image (an angel will warn the people of the earth not to take the mark, number, and name and warn about the penalty of permanent death for taking them)
Those in either of these groups will be cast into the lake of fire because they already know the truth, therefore, there is nothing more to preach or to teach to them. They reject the truth. They reject the word of Yahuwah and Yahuwshuwah.
There are those who are genuinely deceived by all the false doctrines that are circulating on the earth. They have had these false doctrines fed to them from their birth, therefore, they believe them. For instance, the children of Yahsharahal have been told that they are all African, the children of Cham/Ham. Although some of the children of Yahsharahal are of the bloodline of Cham/Ham, they also have the bloodline of Abaraham, Yahtsachaq (Isaac), and Yaaqob (Jacob) which identifies them as the ones who will receive an inheritance in the land of Yahsharahal located in the Middle East. At the present time, they believe that Africa is their homeland. I was one of them who believed this doctrine. It is because historical knowledge and information has been suppressed or changed by those who are “in the know” of the truth and cover it up. The Scriptures have been translated and transliterated in ways to hide the truth, therefore, we must go behind the text to the original Abary language to extract the truth. Yahsharahal will be given an opportunity to hear the truth and to accept or reject it. It will be the first day of salvation for a lot them.
There Is A Sin Unto Death
1 Corinthians 5:1 “It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father’s wife.”
1 Corinthians 5:4-5
4 “In the name of our Master Yahuwshuwah Mashyach, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Master Yahuwshuwah Mashyach, 5 To deliver such an one unto Shatan (Satan) for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Master Yahuwshuwah.”
1 Yohn (John) 5:16 “If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it.”
The wages of all sin is death if we are not covered by the blood of Yahuwshuwah and if we do not repent when we sin. The Book of Corinthians speak about a man who has sinned, but the possibility of salavation is still open to him, if he repents and return to Yahuwah. The Book of Yohn (John) speaks about a brother who has committed a sin which leads to permanent death which means there is no turning back from that sin. For instance, if we know that a brother, relative or friend has taken the mark, number, or name and has bowed down to the image of The Beast, we know that we should not pray for them because it will be too late for them. However, most of our relatives and friends have not committed a sin unto death.
The First Resurrection
Revelation 20:6 “Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of Yahuwah and of Mashyach, and shall reign with him a thousand years.”
The first resurrection will include the dead and alive in Mashyach who will be given immortal bodies and death will have no power over “them”, but there will also be people who will be given flesh bodies to live their life again in the flesh under the laws of Yahuwah, but they will still be subject to death. Those who come up in the first resurrection will be blessed.
Few Are Chosen
Matthew 22:14 “For many are called, but few are chosen.”
Everyone who hears the word will not be chosen for this day of salvation. It is those who bear fruit who will be chosen. I believe that it is impossible for a person who is truly called by Yahuwah to not bear some fruit in their lives (getting rid of sin is fruit) and for them to not want others to receive salvation too (the saints are fruit). Those who bear fruit are not just concerned about their own lives and salvation, but they want others to come to the knowledge of the truth and receive salvation too. The called and chosen will bear fruit and this is one of the ways we can recognize those who are chosen.
Our Dead Loved Ones
We can have this confidence in Yahuwah and The Scriptures that many of our loved ones who have already died without knowledge of the true good news of salvation and knowledge of the name of Yahuwah and Yahuwshuwah and who were not called and chosen by Yahuwah in their lifetime will be in a resurrection and given the opportunity to learn the truth. I know for a fact that many of my loved ones who have died were unaware of the truth that I am receiving at this time. Most of our loved ones are not lost to an eternal hellfire as some preach. Yahuwah has chosen only a few for this current time of salvation for future special service. Yahuwah will get rid of the lies and present the people with the truth. It will be a time of great opportunity and blessing for those resurrected back into a flesh body too because in the first resurrection, the people will not have the influence of Shatan (Satan) to fight and endure as we do because he will be imprisoned for the whole of the one thousand year rest and they will not have the influence of the most incorrigible of wicked mankind because they will be cast into the lake of fire.
This Is Not The Only Day Of Salvation
Those of us who are called and chosen now in this time of salvation to be a special people to Yahuwah and Yahuwshuwah can look forward to seeing our relatives in The Kingdom, “if” we endure to the end because this is “it” for us folks, but it is not the only day of salvation for many others. Therefore, let us aim steadfastly to enter that Kingdom with all our might. Yahuwah is merciful and understands our weaknesses through Yahuwshuwah who lived in the flesh just as we are in the flesh and can relate to our shortcomings. Furthermore, we are told that we are living in the worst time in history that ever has been and ever will be (the tribulation and great tribulation period), and this is part of the reason Yahuwah will bestow such a great blessing as immortality and many other rewards on those who despite the persecution will endure this day of salvation to the end.
