The Physical Foreshadows The Eternal, (Spiritual)
“The Spiritual, however, was not first, but the natural, (physical) and then the Spiritual,” 1 Corinthians 15:46
The first man, (Adam) was of the dust of the earth, the second man, (Y’shua) from heaven, (Spiritual). 1 Corinthians 15:47
All Are Born Into A Temporary, Physical Life
From the beginning, mankind has been able to witness The Creator’s unchanging, perpetual, mathematically precise, physically observable and temporary cycles.
The darkness has always been followed by light and then, temporarily, returns again to darkness. The season of Spring brings new life until the Fall returns and the cycle of Winter reminds us that all life on this physical earth is temporary.
What is Eternal?
Eternal is one of the words translated from the original Hebrew word Olam #5769. It can also be translated Forever, Forevermore, Lasting, Everlasting, Perpetual, Permanent, or Concealed, as in heavenly, (Spiritual) things.
As you can see, Olam is not referring to anything physical that we can see, hear, taste, smell or touch. Our five senses cannot perceive Olam because it’s Spiritual.
“The mind of the flesh, (Physical) is death, but the mind of the Spirit, (Olam) is Life and Peace,” Romans 8:6
When you See the Word Olam, Think Spiritual
“I will establish My Covenant between Me and you and your Offspring/Seed, (Zera #2233) after you throughout their generations for an Everlasting (Olam) Covenant, to be God to you and to your Offspring/Seed, (Zera #2233) after you. Genesis 17:7; Luke 1:55; Galatians 3:16; Hebrews 11:16
“I will give to you and to your Offspring/Seed, (Zera #2233) after you, the Land, (Eretz #776) of your sojournings, All the Land, (Eretz #776) of Canaan, for an Everlasting (Olam) Inheritance; and I will be their God.” Genesis 17:8; Acts 7:5
How the Physical Inheritance Reveals The Eternal, Olam Eretz
“He has remembered His Covenant Forever, (Olam) The Word which He Commanded to a thousand generations, Then He confirmed it to Jacob for a statute, To Israel as an Everlasting (Olam) Covenant, 11 Saying, “To you I will give the Land (Eretz #776) of Canaan As the portion of your Inheritance,” Psalm 105:9; Psalm 105:10; Psalm 105:11
Abraham did not receive even one foot of the Physical Inheritance, because this Covenant was only a physical picture of the Olam. The Spiritual Land, (Eretz) he and his offspring, (the Spiritual Children of God) will inherit is Spiritual Life on the reNewed Earth, (Eretz).
“He gave him no inheritance here, (in the physical) not even a foot of ground. But God Promised to give Possession of the Land, (Eretz) to Abraham and his descendants/offspring, even though he did not yet have a child.” Acts 7:5
“for all the Land, (Eretz) which you see, I will give it to you and to your offspring, (Zera) for ever, (Olam).” Genesis 13:15
He who overcomes/prevails, (this is the meaning of the name Israel) will Inherit these things, and I will be his God, and he will be My son/child. Revelation 21:7
“We know that the Law, (Torah) is Spiritual, (Olam); but I am unspiritual, (physical) sold as a slave to sin.” Romans 7:14
“For All who are led by the Spirit of God are Children of God.” Romans 8:14
The Blessing of (Olam) Life and The Curse of Sin and Death
When Adam and Eve chose the consequence/curse of death, their Creator expelled them from the Garden so they could not eat from the Tree of (Olam) Life and live forever, Genesis 3:22.
Only The Victorious Will Be Granted To Eat From The Tree of Life
“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the
churches, Assembly. To the one who is victorious/overcomes/prevails, (Israel) I will grant the right to eat of the Tree of Life in the paradise of God.”
Revelation 2:7; Revelation 22:14
Don’t panic if you or your loved ones didn’t understand these Spiritual mysteries. Neither Adam and Eve, nor the Patriarchs understood what was later revealed through YHVH’s Word becoming flesh and fulfilling the (Olam) Covenant with His own Life’s blood.
We all have His Unseen Spirit guiding and testing us in this temporary life. No one will have an excuse for why they didn’t seek to know their Creator. He has made Himself known by all He has created, Romans 1:20; Psalm 19:1
The Humble will be Blessed with the Inheritance of Olam Life
“But in keeping with God’s (Olam) Promise (Covenant), we are looking forward to a reNewed (Olam) Heaven and Earth, where Righteousness dwells.” 2 Peter 3:13
“For just as the reNewed (Olam) Heavens and the reNewed (Olam) Earth Which I make will endure before Me,” declares YHVH, “So your offspring, (Zera) and your Name will endure.” Isaiah 66:22; Hebrews 12:27
If you lack Spiritual Wisdom to seek/perceive/know the Spiritual mysteries of our Unseen/Spiritual Creator, ask/pray and it will be given to you, James 1:5.
His Promise includes All people, Galatians 3:8. If we seek our (Olam) Creator and His (Olam) Word, (His Torah), Y’shua, we will find/perceive/know Him, Deuteronomy 4:29; Jeremiah 29:13; Proverbs 8:17; Matthew 7:7.
Knowing Him Means Olam/Spiritual Life in His Olam Covenant
“I am the good shepherd. I know My sheep and My sheep Know Me,” John 10:14
“By this we can be sure that we have come to Know Him: if we keep His commandments.” 1 John 2:3
“If anyone says, “I Know Him,” but does not keep His commandments, he is a liar, and the Truth is not in him.” 1 John 2:4
He is Good/Righteousness/Life/Faithful/Just/Blameless/Abundant in Merciful Loving Kindness. Knowing Him, means knowing the Truth that sets us Free from our physical bondage to sin and death, John 8:32; Proverbs 12:28
“For thus says YHVH to the house of Israel, “Seek Me (Righteousness) that you may Live.” Amos 5:4
