ARE EWE SAVED?

And Israel and all which were to him departed, and he came to Beer-Sheba. And he sacrificed sacrifices to the Elohe of his father Isaac. And Elohim said to Israel in visions of the night, and He spoke, Jacob! Jacob! And he answered, I am here. And He said, I am Elohe, The El of your fathers. Do not fear to go down into Egypt, for I will make of you a great nation there. I will go down with you into Egypt, and I will also surely return you. And Joseph shall put his hand on your eyes. And Jacob rose up from Beer-Sheba; and the sons of Israel carried their father Jacob, and their little ones, and their wives in the wagons which Pharaoh had sent to carry him. And they took their livestock and their property which they had acquired in the land of Canaan. And they came into Egypt, Jacob and all his seed with him. His sons and the sons of his sons were with him, his daughters and his sons’ daughters, and all his seed he brought with him into Egypt. B’resheit/Genesis 46:1-7 (HRB)

Ya’akov is instructed that going to Mitzraim/Egypt at that time was the will of the Eternal. Yah is providing salvation for Ya’akov’s family by delivering them from the famine. The salvation is to insure the promise to Avraham is still valid and will be kept perpetually. Remember the guarantee that the Father gave Avraham, Yitz’chak/Isaac, and Ya’akov is that they would have many descendants to inherit the land that is the focal point of the promise. Unfortunately while those offspring are in Mitzraim, they forget why they are there and become comfortable in their surroundings. This situation will reverse itself because of the fear of the king of Mitzraim, that fear comes about as the children of Isra’el are very prolific in producing progeny. To many Isra’elites instill anxiety in the Mitzrim/Egyptians. As they begin to look upon the immigrants (Isra’elites) with suspicion as they become more numerous than the natives of the land.

The circumstances that develop in Mitzraim cause a backlash, which will result in Isra’el being lowered socially to the status of slaves. People do not realize they were not supposed to think of the land of the Mitzraim as THEIR home. There is only one promised land for Ya’akov’s descendants and Yah specifically sets the boundary markers for where the inheritance is located. Moving those boundary markers is a sin/crime against the Almighty.

The events referred to in the previous paragraphs, require another salvation episode to take place. And Mosheh was shepherding the flock of Yithro his father-in-law, the priest of Miḏyan. And he led the flock to the back of the wilderness, and came to Ḥorĕḇ, the mountain of Elohim. And the Messenger of יהוה appeared to him in a flame of fire from the midst of a bush. And he looked and saw the bush burning with fire, but the bush was not consumed. And Mosheh said, “Let me turn aside now, and see this great sight, why the bush does not burn.” And יהוה saw that he turned aside to see, and Elohim called to him from the midst of the bush and said, “Mosheh! Mosheh!” And he said, “Here I am.” And He said, “Do not come near here. Take your sandals off your feet, for the place on which you are standing is set-apart ground.” And He said, “I am the Elohim of your father, the Elohim of Aḇraham, the Elohim of Yitsḥaq, and the Elohim of Ya‛aqoḇ.” And Mosheh hid his face, for he was afraid to look at Elohim. And יהוה said, “I have indeed seen the oppression of My people who are in Mitsrayim, and have heard their cry because of their slave-drivers, for I know their sorrows. And I have come down to deliver them from the hand of the Mitsrites, and to bring them up from that land to a good and spacious land, to a land flowing with milk and honey, to the place of the Kena‛anites and the Ḥittites and the Amorites and the Perizzites and the Ḥiwwites and the Yeḇusites. And now, see, the cry of the children of Yisra’ĕl has come to Me, and I have also seen the oppression with which the Mitsrites oppress them. And now, come, I am sending you to Pharaoh, to bring My people, the children of Yisra’ĕl, out of Mitsrayim.” And Mosheh said to Elohim, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh, and that I should bring the children of Yisra’ĕl out of Mitsrayim?” And He said, “Because I am with you. And this is to you the sign that I have sent you: When you have brought the people out of Mitsrayim, you are to serve Elohim on this mountain.” And Mosheh said to Elohim, “See, when I come to the children of Yisra’ĕl and say to them, ‘The Elohim of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they say to me, ‘What is His Name?’ what shall I say to them?” And Elohim said to Mosheh, “I am that which I am.” And He said, “Thus you shall say to the children of Yisra’ĕl, ‘I am has sent me to you.’ ” And Elohim said further to Mosheh, “Thus you are to say to the children of Yisra’ĕl, ‘יהוה Elohim of your fathers, the Elohim of Aḇraham, the Elohim of Yitsḥaq, and the Elohim of Ya‛aqoḇ, has sent me to you. This is My Name forever, and this is My remembrance to all generations.’ Go, and you shall gather the elders of Yisra’ĕl together, and say to them, ‘יהוה Elohim of your fathers, the Elohim of Aḇraham, of Yitsḥaq, and of Ya‛aqoḇ, appeared to me, saying, I have indeed visited you and seen what is done to you in Mitsrayim; and I say: I am bringing you up out of the affliction of Mitsrayim to the land of the Kena‛anite and the Ḥittite and the Amorite and the Perizzite and the Ḥiwwite and the Yeḇusite, to a land flowing with milk and honey. And they shall listen to your voice. And you shall come, you and the elders of Yisra’ĕl, to the sovereign of Mitsrayim, and you shall say to him, ‘יהוה Elohim of the Heḇrews has met with us. And now, please, let us go three days’ journey into the wilderness to slaughter to יהוה our Elohim.’ But I know that the sovereign of Mitsrayim is not going to let you go, not even by a strong hand. And I shall stretch out My hand and smite Mitsrayim with all My wonders which I shall do in its midst. And after that he shall let you go. And I shall give this people favour in the eyes of the Mitsrites. And it shall be, that when you go, you shall not go empty-handed. But every woman shall ask from her neighbour and from the stranger in her house, objects of silver, and objects of gold, and garments. And you shall put them on your sons and on your daughters, and shall plunder the Mitsrites.” Sh’mot/Exodus 3:1-22 (ISR98)

Yah is sending Moshe on a mission to save His/his people from their circumstances brought on through some of their own decisions. The method El will use will require Isra’el to trust Him to protect them, for they will not be taken out of harms way … but will be shielded from the most dire of the plagues. A plague is a wound inflicted on a people or a land. How many places on the planet today are receiving wounds allowed by the Father? Do not forget that the Eternal was sending a message to everyone in the land of the Mitzrim, this included the children of Isra’el. No one was going to leave in the Exodus until Yah said it was time to go. Isra’el needed to witness the results of the plagues, for themselves, to see the hand of Elohim at work. We also will not be going anywhere until the plagues are over in these last days. This paragraph is addressing the section highlighted (red) above.

And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, his disciples came unto him apart, saying, Tell us when these things shall be, and what sign shall be of thy coming, and of the end of the world. And Jesus answered, and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my Name, saying, I am Christ, and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars, and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and realm against realm, and there shall be famine, and pestilence, and earthquakes in divers places. All these are but the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you, and ye shall be hated of all nations for my Name’s sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall arise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall be increased, the love of many shall be cold. But he that endureth to the end, he shall be saved. And this Gospel of the kingdom shall be preached through the whole world for a witness unto all nations, and then shall the end come. When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel the Prophet, set in the holy place (let him that readeth consider it.) Then let them which be in Judea, flee into the mountains. Let him which is on the housetop, not come down to fetch anything out of his house. And he that is in the field, let not him return back to fetch his clothes. And woe shall be to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days. But pray that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the Sabbath day. For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not from the beginning of the world to this time, nor shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there, believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders, so that if it were possible, they should deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert, go not forth: Behold, he is in the secret places, believe it not. For as the lightning cometh out of the East, and is seen into the West, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For wheresoever a dead carcass is, thither will the Eagles be gathered together. And immediately after the tribulations of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the kindreds of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man come in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his Angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect, from the four winds, and from the one end of the heavens unto the other. Mattityahu/Matthew 24:3-31 (GNV)

This entire discourse, Y’shua has with his talmidim/disciples, pertains to the second coming/exodus. There is no rapture according to the concept most have been taught about escapism. The Master informs his followers that they will have to live through some very serious circumstances before they will be SAVED from their enemies. In the previous sentence, the word ‘they’ is not a reference to those that heard him that day … but to individuals of the last days. Events of great turmoil will have to be endured by the people of Yah. We will not necessarily suffer physical hardship – but we will have to witness others going through it. How many want to contemplate we will have to see another persons torment? Stop assuming that we will be spared from being observers of these horrible events.

Note that the Teacher tells us that we will see him coming in the clouds before we will hear the last trumpet blast. Remember this signal is a call to assembly for the 12 tribes of Isra’el. Many will be confused because this will be a gathering instead of an escape. And you will know that I [am] in the midst of Israel, and I [am] Yahweh, your God, and there is no [other]. My people {will never be ashamed again}. And it will happen afterward thus: I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters will prophesy, and your elders will dream dreams; your young men shall see visions. And also on the male slaves and on the female slaves, I will pour out my Spirit in those days. And I will {set} wonders in the heavens, and on earth, blood and fire and columns of smoke. The sun will be changed to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the coming of the great and awesome day of Yahweh. And it will happen–everyone who calls on the name of Yahweh will be rescued, because on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will be {those who escape}, as Yahweh said, and among the survivors whom Yahweh is calling. Yo’el/Joel 2:27-32(2:27-3:5) (LEB) The portion highlighted (red) clearly uses the tetragrammaton/יהוה, not the Son’s designation, as he and the Father are both part of this process. Notice where the refuge/escape is as opposed to where many expect it to be. There will be many surprises in store for most and this will require the swallowing of pride and the discarding of false teachings. No where is heaven described as anyone’s destination. How many will be unhappy about this situation as it is not going to be what many suppose it will be? 

Y’shua declares that anyone bringing a message contrary to the Torah/Law, is a false prophet. Exactly the same criteria used by Moshe in the following: All this word which I command you, that shall ye observe to do; thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it. If there arise in the midst of thee a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams – and he give thee a sign or a wonder, and the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spoke unto thee – saying: ‘Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them’; thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or unto that dreamer of dreams; for the LORD your God putteth you to proof, to know whether ye do love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul. After the LORD your God shall ye walk, and Him shall ye fear, and His commandments shall ye keep, and unto His voice shall ye hearken, and Him shall ye serve, and unto Him shall ye cleave. And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he hath spoken perversion against the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed thee out of the house of bondage, to draw thee aside out of the way which the LORD thy God commanded thee to walk in. So shalt thou put away the evil from the midst of thee. If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, that is as thine own soul, entice thee secretly, saying: ‘Let us go and serve other gods,’ which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers; of the gods of the peoples that are round about you, nigh unto thee, or far off from thee, from the one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth; thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him; but thou shalt surely kill him; thy hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people. And thou shalt stone him with stones, that he die; because he hath sought to draw thee away from the LORD thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. And all Israel shall hear, and fear, and shall do no more any such wickedness as this is in the midst of thee. If thou shalt hear tell concerning one of thy cities, which the LORD thy God giveth thee to dwell there, saying: ‘Certain base fellows are gone out from the midst of thee, and have drawn away the inhabitants of their city, saying: Let us go and serve other gods, which ye have not known’; then shalt thou inquire, and make search, and ask diligently; and, behold, if it be truth, and the thing certain, that such abomination is wrought in the midst of thee; thou shalt surely smite the inhabitants of that city with the edge of the sword, destroying it utterly, and all that is therein and the cattle thereof, with the edge of the sword. And thou shalt gather all the spoil of it into the midst of the broad place thereof, and shall burn with fire the city, and all the spoil thereof every whit, unto the LORD thy God; and it shall be a heap for ever; it shall not be built again. And there shall cleave nought of the devoted thing to thy hand, that the LORD may turn from the fierceness of His anger, and show thee mercy, and have compassion upon thee, and multiply thee, as He hath sworn unto thy fathers; when thou shalt hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep all His commandments which I command thee this day, to do that which is right in the eyes of the LORD thy God. D’varim/Deuteronomy 12:32-13:18 (13:1-19) (JPS)

Anyone who disregards the Masters own teaching on the hill is a false prophet. Y’shua states the following: “Don’t think that I have come to abolish the Torah or the Prophets. I have come not to abolish but to complete. Yes indeed! I tell you that until heaven and earth pass away, not so much as a yud or a stroke will pass from the Torah — not until everything that must happen has happened. So whoever disobeys the least of these mitzvot and teaches others to do so will be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven. But whoever obeys them and so teaches will be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven. Mattityahu 5:17-19 (CJB) “Not every one who says to me, ‘Master, Master,’ will enter the Kingdom of the Heavens, but only those who are obedient to my Father who is in Heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Master, Master, have we not prophesied in Thy name, and in Thy name expelled demons, and in Thy name performed many mighty works?’ And then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you: begone from me, you doers of wickedness.’” Mattityahu 7:21-23 (WNT) How are you able to have emunah/faith, when you receive kavod/esteem from one another, and the kavod from the only Elohim HaEchad you do not seek? Do not think that I will accuse you before HaAv/the Father; however, there is one accusing you: Moshe, in whom you have set your tikvah/hope. For if you were having emunah in Moshe, you would have had emunah in me, for he himself wrote concerning me. But if in the Kitvei Hakodesh/Holy Writings of that one you lack emunah, how will you have emunah in my dvar/word? Yochanan/John 5:44-47 (OJB) If you love me, keep my mitzvot. Yochanan 14:15 (HNV) So the dragon became enraged at the woman and went off to make war with the rest of her offspring—those who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Yeshua. Chazon/Revelation 12:17 (TLV) “Here is the perseverance of the holy ones, those who keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Yeshua.” Chazon 14:12 (WMB)

The Teacher over and over states that he only speaks his Father’s Words, to do otherwise he would be defining himself as a false prophet. So … how many know where to find the Father’s Words? What is the Eternal’s definition of Salvation? Being SAVED has nothing to do with our sins being forgiven – this is a completely separate issue. Misteaching this topic creates confusion among the population, who are mistakenly excepting the message as being truthfully explained to them. Immortality of the soul is one of the biggest culprits in this false portrayal of the Kingdom of Yah. Simply putting our trust in the words of the wolves in sheep’s clothing, does not make the message true. Everyone needs to examine the Scriptures to find out what the Father is actually saying. This is the same advice Sha’ul/Paul gives us in his commendation of the Bereans as opposed to what the Thessalonians were doing. Remember Sha’ul had to write two letters to the Thessalonians, who had erroneously come to the wrong conclusion about what Sha’ul was writing to them about.

When we call upon the name of Yah, IN THAT DAY, we shall be SAVED. Any other time we call upon the Almighty, we are addressing our desire to be SAVED. There is no mystical content to this prayer request, to the Father, and it does not address any other issue but rescue. Confessing our sins is not SALVATION – but acknowledging our guilt so that we can be forgiven. What is the only definition of sin? Everyone who makes a practice of sinning also practices lawlessness; sin is lawlessness. Yochanan Alef 3:4 (ESV) So … according to Scripture – are we SAVED yet?

Shalom Aleichem!
