The Answer Made the Religious Leaders, “Gnash Their Teeth.”

Image result for image of a prideful man trying to get through a narrow door “Gnashing Teeth” is a Metaphor Revealing Anger.

“The wicked (those who stray from the Path of Life) will see it and be angry, (kaas #3707) He will gnash his teeth, (out of anger) and wither away, (masas #4549);  The greed, (taavah #8378) of the wicked will perish, (abad #6).” Psalm 112:10

“There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth when you see Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and all the prophets in the Kingdom of God, but you yourselves (the arrogant) are thrown out.” Luke 13:28; Matthew 8:12; Matthew 22:13; Matthew 25:30

“The older son became angry and refused to go in. So his father came out and pleaded with him.” Luke 15:28 

Who, did Y’hoshua’s (Jesus’) say, would be “thrown out from the Kingdom of God?”  Why was the older son so angry he refused to go into his Father’s banquet?  These 1st Century religious leaders knew He was referring to them, Matthew 21:45. 

Only The Humble Will Inherit Life after Death in God’s Kingdom

“Truly I tell you, He (Y’hoshua) said, “unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the Kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 18:3
“Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this little child is the greatest in the Kingdom of heaven.”  Matthew 18:4

Y’hoshua explains the mystery of Spiritual Life in His Kingdom with physical examples;

“Flesh is born of flesh, but spirit is born of the Spirit. Do not be amazed that I said, ‘You must be born again.”  John 3:7

We must be born Spiritually to enter Spiritual Life.  Yet still today, Jewish religious leaders await the physical Messiah, (anointed King) who will reign in a physical Temple and rule the nations, (goyim) in a physical Kingdom on the physical earth, (eretz).  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Messiah_in_Judaism.

 “Jesus (Y’hoshua) answered, “My Kingdom is not of this world; if it were, My servants would fight to prevent My arrest by the Jews. But now, My Kingdom is not of this realm.” John 18:36; John 2:21

Was Y’hoshua, (Jesus) Jewish?

Y’hoshua was prophesied to come through a specific lineage, namely, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob/Israel, Judah… (Judah, being the origin of the term Jewish).  The confusion between Israel and Judah began when the two divided approximately 930 B.C..  The ten Northern tribes of Israel were conquered by the Assyrians and eventually assimilated into the nations.  Judah was later conquered by the Babylonians but returned from their captivity 70 years later, just as prophesied, Jeremiah 25:12

With this in mind, Yes, Y’housha came through the line of Judah.  Was His religion Jewish?  All opinions aside, lets take a look at Y’hoshua’s own words to the Jewish religious leaders:

Matthew 23

He told the people to listen to their religious leaders when they read the Torah in Moses seat, but He warned them not to do what they do.  Why?  He called them “hypocrites,” “blind guides,” who were like “white-washed tombs, beautiful on the outside but dead on the inside.”  They were like “snakes, a brood of vipers, full of greed and self-indulgence, everything they did was to be seen.  They liked the most important seats and loved to be greeted with honor and respect.  They slammed the door of the Kingdom of God in peoples faces, adding heavy burdens, and neglecting Justice, Mercy and Faithfulness.”

All that to say, Y’hoshua didn’t follow the Jewish religious leaders.  These “Torah experts” were far too proud to see the Torah’s bigger, Spiritual, picture of God’s Kingdom.

The Kingdom of God is Greater Than Any Religion.

Y’hoshua used physical examples to describe spiritual Truth.  The narrow gate and the eye of the needle show us nothing physical will enter the Kingdom of God.

Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.” Matthew 7:13

“Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of God.” Matthew 19:24

Jerusalem has a large gate with a small opening called the eye of the needle.

Pride, arrogance and greed are physical and will not be able to go through the narrow way.

Flesh and Blood Can Not Enter the Kingdom of God.

1 Corinthians 15:50

The Torah, five books of Moses, and the Prophets foretold Y’hoshua, the Promised “Seed,” the Messiah, the Anointed, Son of God.  Luke 24:27; John 5:39John 5:46; Genesis 12:3…

Unseen, Eternal or Spiritual mysteries are revealed metaphorically, in Parables, which are concrete, literal examples, revealing abstract or Spiritual Truth.  The arrogant heart is called hard, uncircumcised and covered with a metaphorical veil, 2 Corinthians 3:16; Ezekiel 44:7; Isaiah 25:7.   Only those in Messiah are given eyes and ears to perceive the Spiritual mystery of The Good News, Psalm 78:2;  Matthew 13:35; 1 Corinthians 2:92 Corinthians 3:14; 2 Corinthians 4:3Isaiah 64:4.

Life after Death Was Promised To Mankind From the Beginning

The Good News, or Blessing, of our renewed Spiritual Life, was given along with the Curse of death.  The Promised “Seed,” who would Bless All the people of the earth, can be traced from Adam and Eve, to Abraham and right to Y’hoshua, (YHVH’s Salvation).

“And I will put enmity Between you (the serpent) and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed, (Messiah);  He shall bruise you (the serpent) on the head, And you shall bruise him on the heel.” Genesis 3:15; Galatians 3:16…

“And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse.  And in you All the families, of the earth will be blessed. Genesis 12:3Genesis 28:14Acts 3:25Galatians 3:8…

You are Heirs of the Promise, of Life after Death, if You are In Messiah

Galatians 3:29Ephesians 3:6Hebrews 6:17Acts 3:25; Acts 2:39

What does it look like to be, “In Messiah?”  Here are three physical examples; 1.  we are given a crown of Life.  2.  Our names are written in the Book of Life.  3.   We will be clothed in white.  “Clothe yourselves with Y’hoshua Messiah” Romans 13:14.  He gives us “Robes of Righteousness/Salvation” and refers to them as “Wedding Garments.”

When Adam and Eve rebelled against God, the consequence was death.  They realized they were naked because they had lost this covering.  God made them temporary garments of animal skins and He also made sure they could not eat from the Tree of Life and live that way forever, Genesis 2:25Genesis 3:21; Genesis 3:22.

“I will rejoice greatly in YHVH, My soul will exult in my God; For He has clothed me with garments of Salvation, He has wrapped me with a robe of Righteousness, As a bridegroom decks himself with a garland, And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.” Isaiah 61:10; Matthew 22:12Revelation 3:5; Revelation 7:14Revelation 16:15…

In Adam All Die, but in Messiah All will be Made Alive.

1 Corinthians 15:221 Corinthians 15:45

This is were it becomes important to know the meaning of the name Israel, and why those in “Spiritual Israel” are called Prevailers, Victorious, Triumphant, Overcomers.   

The Promised Seed of the women metaphorically crushes the serpents (satan’s) head, Genesis 3:15.  Her Seed is Victorious, and Women don’t have seeds, so this is refers to a miraculous birth and a Spiritual Victory.  

“The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the Law Curse.” 1 Corinthians 15:56

It is by Y’hoshua’s death and resurrection, we also Prevail, in Spiritual Israel.  Then, and only then, will we be granted the right to eat from the Tree of Life and Live forever, Revelation 2:11Revelation 12:11 

“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches assemblies. To the one who is Victorious, (Israel) I will grant the right to eat of the tree of Life in the paradise of God.” Revelation 2:7

Why Doesn’t My Rabbi, Priest, Pastor or Imam Teach This?

“You are the Christ/Messiah, the Son of the Living God.” Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah!  For this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by My Father in heaven.” Matthew 16:17 

Because Spiritual Truth is revealed to us by God’s Spirit, and His Word is Spiritual; Romans 7:14John 16:13John 14:17John 14:26…

The Religious leaders, of Y’hoshua’s time on earth, searched the Scriptures to gain Life after death but even after hearing Him say, “these are the Words that testify about Me,” they refused the Life-Giver, John 5:39; John 5:40.

 Religious leaders aren’t the only ones who get puffed up by knowledge, 1 Corinthians 8:1.  We all form our opinions according to what we’ve heard, seen, tasted, touched or smelled.  Opinions automatically make us think we are right and the others are wrong.  This is the reason we must All humble ourselves, becoming like little children who have the ability to ask, and seek wholeheartedly, and then we are promised to find God’s Spirit, Matthew 7:7Deuteronomy 4:29.

Seek The Spiritual Life-Giver, Not A Dead Religion

Israel is not a Jewish Religion.  The “Assembly of Israel” was not replaced by the Catholic or Protestant “Church.”  Islam, Mormonism and all the others who claim to have new revelations from God, have no concept of Spiritual Israel.  

We must learn to wean ourselves from the physical bottles of religion and ask the Spiritual Life-Giver to give us eyes and ears to perceive His Spiritual Kingdom for ourselves.  Only then will we understand His perfect purpose in setting apart a specific, physical lineage that gave birth to the promised Seed/Son/Messiah, “Spiritual Israel.”

 Will You Inherit Life after Death?

Countless people have died without understanding this Spiritual mystery.  Needless to say, our understanding has nothing to do with God’s indescribable ability.  I have peace in knowing He doesn’t want anyone to perish, 2 Peter 3:9,

And I trust in His promise that there will be a day when every eye will see, Revelation 1:7

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 1:55Galatians 3:16Hebrews 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) Covenant11 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

Image result for image of Romans 8:19

“that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious Freedom of the Children of God.”  Romans 8:21; James 1:25James 2:12 

The Blessing of (Olam) Life and The Curse of Sin and Death

For in Messiah Y’shua the law, (Torah) of the Spirit of Life has set you free from the law, (curse) of sin and death.”  Romans 8:2; Revelation 22:3; Isaiah 51:11; Zechariah 14:11

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.

Death has always been a temporary curse with hope of Olam Life in the Creator’s Covenant/Promise, Romans 16:20; Genesis 3:15.

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.

Remember Abraham was counted Righteous by his faithfulness, (Emunah #530) and we are also counted Righteous by our faithfulness, (Emunah), Genesis 15:6; Romans 4:3; James 2:21.

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

“Blessed are the Humble, (Anav #6035) for they will inherit the Earth, (Eretz). Psalm 37:11; Matthew 5:5

“Then I saw a renewed (Olam) Heaven and Earth, for the first heaven and earth, (physical) had passed away…”  Revelation 21:1; Isaiah 65:17

“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 29:13Proverbs 8:17Matthew 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
