Everlasting Kingdom: Unraveling the Bible’s Secrets

Yehovah AND His Messiah!”

Or “The Lord AND His Christ”

Anyone Out There?

Addendum #2 Preview: When the Yeshua (Jesus) descends to earth to be with all of His kadishea (saints) (1 Thessalonians 4:13-17), and with “all the spirit Messengers of Yehovah” (Hebrews 1:6), is He going to abandon His Father in the darkness of outer space? Will Father be “left behind”? Will the Messiah leave Him “out there” for a thousand years all alone? Or, could it be that “Project Earth” was always meant to be a joint venture with Father owning the Kingdom and the Son ruling it?

Revelation 6:16-17 and they said to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us FROM THE PRESENCE OF THE ONE SITTING ON THE THRONE AND from the anger of the Lamb, 17 because the great day of Their rage has come, and who is able to ‘survive’ that?”

While most people believe that Father was the “God of the Old Testament”, and that the Son carried out a sort of “corporate take over” relieving His “harsh old Father” of His duties—particularly that of managing the Earth during the “millennial reign”, the Bible show us a much different scenario!

The “Return of Jesus”—OR—When THEY Return?

Mysteries of the Everlasting Kingdom
INDEX

This site has several articles on the Biblical “nature of Yeshua” (Jesus), meaning His eternal past existence and His dominant role in human affairs since Adam but in this list of Bible verses, the topic considered is simply the fact that Yeshua is coming back and His Father will be right there with Him!

Acts 4:26 The kings of the earth and the rulers stood up, and they allied themselves against Yehovah AND against His Messiah’.—The Gabriel Bible

The source of the above quotation from Acts describes what “the Lord” and “My Son” (v.7) will do. It is in fact at this literally earthshaking moment in time that Father, while standing on the earth, hands over the Kingdoms of the earth to His beloved Son!

Psalm 2:1-5 Why are the nations enraged, and the people ploting asinine schemes? 2 The kings of the earth rise up, and the rulers conspire together against Yehovah, and against His Messiah [Anointed], by saying: 3 “Let’s break their shackles apart, and shake off their ropes.” 4 The One enthroned in heaven laughs; Yehovah laughs them to scorn! 5 Then He’ll speak to them in His anger, and terrify them in His fury

Ultimately, the kings of the earth take their final stand “against Yehovah AND against HIS Messiah” at “the valley of Jehoshaphat”:

Joel 3:2 I’ll gather all the nations and will bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat [not Armageddon?], and I’ll execute judgment on them there on behalf of My people, because they’ve scattered My heritage Israel among the nations and divvied up My land.

Revelation 11:15 The seventh messenger blew his shofar, and there were voices [the Greek adds “in heaven”] and thunder that said, “The kingdoms of the world have become the kingdom of YHVH (Yehovah) and of His Messiah, and They will reign forever and ever.”

Revelation 22:4-5 They’ll see His face, and His name will be on their foreheads. 5 There will be no more night, and they’ll have no need for the light of a candle, or of the light of the sun, because YHVH enlightens them, and They’ll reign forever and ever.

Revelation 12:10 I heard a ‘loud’ voice from the sky say, “Now there is eternal Life and power, and the Kingdom of our YHVH, and the dominion of His Messiah, because the Accuser of our Friends who accused them day and night before our Aloha has been thrown down.

There are many Bible quotations about the New Jerusalem coming to earth and becoming a city in the clouds of heaven. Biblically, heaven usually means the sky, but it can mean outer space, as well as the Highest Heaven.

Yeshua is “the Human Son”. Here is one of many references:

Matthew 19:28 Yeshua told them, “I assure you that when the Human Son sits on His magnificent throne on the Renewed Earth, those of you who have followed Me will also sit on twelve thrones, presiding over the twelve tribes of Israel.

Yeshua used this title to make plain Daniel’s prophecy. Undoubtedly the Human Son will join the Ancient of Days here on earth in the Everlasting Kingdom.

Daniel 7:13-14 In my vision that night I saw Someone like a Human Son, coming with the clouds of the sky, and as He was approaching the Ancient of Days, they escorted Him into His presence. 14 He was given dominion, and splendor, and a Kingdom, so that people of every nation and language would serve Him. His Kingdom is an Everlasting Kingdom that won’t pass away, and His Kingdom is one what will never be destroyed.

Actually “One like” is not in the Hebrew of chapter 7. It should simply read: “a Human Son coming”. On another occasion, Nebuchadnezzar used the phrase “like a son of the aloha” (god/s), (Daniel 3:25) but then he didn’t know for sure who the fourth person in the fiery furnace was. He actually did say “likea son of the aloha”.

In the reference below, John was not positive at first that he was seeing the actual Human Son until He was told so plainly. He had difficulty distinguishing Elohim (God) from His Messengers (angels) (Revelation 19:10, 22:9).

Revelation 1:13-18 and among the menorahs, someone, ‘perhaps’ the Human Son, wearing a robe down to His feet, and wearing a gold sash around His chest. 14 His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow. His eyes resembled flames of fire. 15 His feet were like refined brass, glowing in a furnace, and His voice was like the waves on the sea. 16 He had seven stars in His right hand and a sharp two edged sword came from His mouth. His face was like the sun shining full strength.

17 When I saw Him, I fell at His feet as tho dead. He laid His right hand on me and said “Don’t be afraid, I am the First and the Last, 18 the living One. I was dead, but look, I’m alive forevermore! Aw-main. And I have the keys of death and Sheol.

Revelation 7:10 They were shouting, “Eternal Life to YHVH, to the One who sits on the throne and to the Lamb!”

1 Corinthians 15:23-24 but everyone in their order, Messiah was the firstfruit. Later, at His coming, those who are the Messiah’s [will be restored to life]. 24 Then the end of these events comes, when He’ll have handed over the Kingdom to YHVH the Father, when every ruler and every government and every powerful force will have been overthrown.

Notice that the Lamb is feeding them, but Elohim is wiping away the tears:

Revelation 7:17 because the Lamb who is in the center of the throne will feed them and lead them to springs of living water, and YHVH will wipe every tear from their eyes.”

Revelation 14:4 They are the ones who haven’t defiled themselves with women, they are spiritual virgins. They are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. Yeshua (Jesus) has purchased them from humanity, the firstfruits of YHVH and the Lamb.

Revelation 14:10 they will also drink the wine of YHVH’s anger that is poured out undiluted into the cup of His anger, and will be tormented with fire and sulfur in the presence of the messengers and the throne.

Rest assured, the Farther will not miss out on the marriage supper.

Revelation 19:6-9 Then I heard what ‘sounded like’ a huge gathering of ordinary people, a ‘sound’ reminiscent of raging water and a voice like ‘booming’ thunder shouting, “Hallelujah! Our Master YHVH the Sovereign reigns. 7 Let’s rejoice and be exuberant and praise Him, because the Marriage Banquet of the Lamb has come, and His bride has made herself ready. 8 She was given fine linen clothing to wear, bright and pure, because fine linen represents the righteousness of the kadishea.

9 He told me, “Write this, ‘Those who are called to the Marriage Banquet of the Lamb are blessed.’” Then he told me, “These are the true words of YHVH.”

Notice that it is not the Lamb’s or Messiah’s Supper:

Revelation 19:17 I saw a messenger standing in front of the sun, and he shouted to all the birds flying in midair, “Come, gather for the great supper of YHVH,

The “marriage feast” will take place as the wicked are perishing! Imagine what kind of people were “unworthy” if “bad” people are allowed to come instead of those first “invited”.

Matthew 22:8-10, 12-13 Then he said to his servants, ‘The banquet is ready, but those who were invited were unworthy. 9 Then he said to his servants, ‘The banquet is ready, but those who were invited were unworthy. 9 Now go to the main street intersections and invite everyone you find to the banquet.’ 10 So the servants went out into the streets and brought in everyone they could find, both bad and good, and the banquet hall was filled with ‘guests’. ... 12 He asked him, “Friend, how did you get in here without festive clothes?” But he was speechless. 13 Then the king told his “deacons”, “Tie his hands and his feet and throw him into the outer darkness, there will be crying and grinding of teeth.

Here is more about that same time period:

Revelation 21:1-5 I saw a new heaven and a New Earth, because the first heaven and the first earth had gone, and there was no more sea. 2 I saw the kadosh city, the New Jerusalem, coming down out of Heaven from YHVH, like a bride adorned for her husband [for the Marriage of the Lamb]. 3 I heard a loud voice from the sky say, “Look, YHVH’s tabernacle [dwelling place] is among humanity [Gr. anthropos]. He will live with them and they’ll be His people, and YHVH will be with them, yes YHVH Himself will be with them.” 4 Every tear will be wiped from their eyes, and there will be no more death [3] or mourning or crying or pain, nor will the previous painful state exist anymore, because the previous evil things have gone away. 5 The One who was seated on the throne said, “Look, I’m making everything new”. And He said, “Write this down, because these are the faithful and true words of YHVH.”

[3] The cessation of tears and death begins as soon as the Everlasting Kingdom is established! Check the entire context of Isaiah 25, particularly v.8. Yet the wicked are excluded from this blessing. 1 Corinthians 15:23-24 says, “but everyone in their order, Messiah was the firstfruit. Later, at His coming, those who are the Messiah’s [will be restored to life]. 24 Then the end of these events comes, when He’ll have handed over the Kingdom to YHVH the Father, when every ruler and every government and every powerful force will have been overthrown”. Many assume that there is a 1,000 year gap between verse 23 and verse 24, assuming that it will take Yeshua 1,000 years to conquer the world. Have they read any prophecies? Zechariah 14 is a detailed account of the conquest of the world, it’s called the Day of Yehovah (the “Lord”). The earth will be “under His feet”, beginning at the Mount of Olives. Ezekiel 38 and 39 is another specific account of the conquest. Some postpone these chapters too. Consequently they must, for example, also think that it will take 1,000 years for Him to “make My kadosh name known in the midst of My people Israel” (Ezekiel 39:7) as well.

Isaiah 25:8-10 He will devour death forever! The Sovereign Yehovah will wipe away the tears from every face. He’ll eliminate the scorn of His people from the entire earth. Yehovah has spoken!

9 Israel will be saying in that day, “This is our Elohim! We have been waiting for Him to rescue us! This is Yehovah! We’ve been waiting for Him. Let’s rejoice and celebrate His rescue!” 10 Yehovah’s hand will rest on this mountain, and Moab will be trampled down under him, like urine soaked straw is trampled into the manure in a ‘stall’!

Revelation 22:4-5 They’ll see His face, and His name will be on their foreheads. 5 There will be no more night, and they’ll have no need for the light of a candle, or of the light of the sun, because YHVH enlightens them, and They’ll reign forever and ever.

Revelation 21:22-23 I didn’t see a Temple in it, because YHVH Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. 23 The city didn’t need the sun or the moon for enlightenment because YHVH’s brightness enlightens it, and the Lamb is its lamp.

If Father were going to be in hiding for a thousand years then would the “the mystery of Aloha (God)” “be finished” during the seal plagues?

Revelation 10:7 When the time comes for the seventh messenger to blow his shofar, the mystery of YHVH will be finished, just as He announced to His servants the prophets.

In Revelation there is unquestionable distinction between “YHVH” and His “Messiah”, or “YHVH” and the “Lamb”, and so on. The same teamwork is present in these verses of Hebrews where we read of “God” (who must be Father) and “His Son”. Likewise, the specific reference to “God” speaking with “us” “in these latter [as they thought] days” (specifically, after the ministry of John the (Immerser)Baptist) “by His Son” expresses two distinct and unmistakable thoughts. First, the Son is not the same as “God” is in this reference, as they are portrayed as two separate entities. Secondly, the use of the word “by”, in “by His Son”, is particularly noteworthy in that this use of the Greek “en” denotes the “instrument” “thru who” Elohim has spoken; so the Speaker is definitely not this particular Elohim, but again, a separate entity from Elohim. This use of “en” is exactly the same as “by” in verse 1 in reference to the “prophets”, none of them being Elohim the Father either. The translators have translated the Greek word “en” into the English word “by” perfectly in verses 1 and 2.

Hebrews 1:1-3 In ancient times Yehovah spoke with our ancestors in many portions and many forms thru the prophets. 2 But in these last days [1], He has spoken with us by His Son, who He appointed heir of all things [the universe]. Thru Him He created the worlds. 3 He brightly reflects His Fathers’ splendor and is essentially identical in His Being. He sustains the universe by the power of His Word. And He personally provided the purification to cover our sins, and sat down at the right hand side of His Majesty in the high places.

[1] Paul thought that he was living in the “last days”, also termed “latter days”. The prophecies in the Tanak using these terms include the seven year period alluded to in Daniel, plus “a day of vengeance, a year of payback settling the dispute over Zion.” (Isaiah 34:8)—eight years.

This teamwork is not about to end:

Revelation 20:4 I saw thrones, and those who were seated on them, and judicial authority was given to them, and I saw the bodies of those who were beheaded for THE TESTIMONY OF YESHUA [the ‘NT’] and for THE WORD OF ALOHA [the ‘OT’]. These are the ones who hadn’t worshiped the predatory beast or his icon, nor had they accepted his mark on their forehead or on their hand. They lived and reigned with their Messiah during those thousand years.

Zechariah 14:9 Yehovah will be King over all the earth. When that day comes it will be Yehovah alone, and His name alone.

David knew that Father would be at the right hand of the Messiah when He judges “the nations” and kills “the ruler of the whole earth” [Satan]:

Psalm 110:4-6 Yehovah has sworn, and will not change His mind, “You are a priest forever in the likeness of Melchizedek [meaning King of Righteousness].” 5 Yehovah is at your right hand. He’ll shatter kings on the day of His anger. 6 He’ll execute judgment among the nations. He’ll fill them with corpses. He’ll crush the rulers of the whole earth.

Therefore it is not the Master (LORD) Yehovah who is the priest, but another—the Master here is Father and He is not talking to Himself!

Here, Paul is speaking of Yeshua the Messiah as being this “priest”:

Hebrews 7:17 He declared about Him: “You are a Priest forever, like Melchizedek”.

Isaiah 9:7 Of the increase of His dominion and prosperity there will be no end, from David’s throne and over His kingdom, arranging it and maintaining it, with justice and righteousness from that time on—forever. The zeal of the Word* of Yehovah the Commander will make it happen.

Father has determined to accomplish these things thru His Son.

Daniel 2:44 During the ‘reign’ of those king [Barne’s], the Elohim of Heaven will set up a Kingdom that will never be destroyed. It’s sovereignty will never be given to other people. It will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms. But it will be established forever.

Compare this to Yeshua’s statement below:

Matthew 6:13 Don’t bring us into trial, but rescue us from evil, because the Kingdom and the power and the splendor is Yours into eternity. Aw-main’.

Father will coronate Yeshua on “the throne of His father David”:

Luke 1:32-33 He’ll be great and will be called ‘the Son of the Highest’, and YHVH Aloha will give Him the throne of His ancestor David. 33 He’ll rule over the descendants of Jacob forever in His Everlasting Kingdom”.

Colossians 1:13-15 YHVH has rescued us from the dominion of darkness, and brought us into the Kingdom of His dear Son. 14 He has paid our ransom and released us from the bondage of sin. 15 He looks like the Aloha who is never seen, and is the firstborn of all living beings. [2].

[2] No one was “born anew” before Him.

Doesn’t this explain any alleged “conflicts” in the Bible concerning whose kingdom it is: Father’s or Yeshua’s? doesn’t it also show that there is a difference between the “Lord God” and the “Son” of the Lord God?

Luke 11:2 Yeshua told them, “When you pray say, ‘Father in Heaven, may Your name be kept kadosh, may Your Kingdom come. May Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.

Revelation 5:13 And He’ll be over everything created in Heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea and everything in them.” Then I heard the One who sat on the throne saying, “The Lamb is being given blessings, honor, praise and power forever and ever.”

Hebrews 1:6-8And when bringing the Firstborn into the world He said, “All of the spirit messengers of YHVH must worship Him.” 7 But of the messengers He said, “He makes His messengers like wind [or spirit] and His servants like flames of fire [2]. 8 But of the Son He said, “Your throne, O YHVH, is for all eternity, and the scepter of Your Kingdom is a scepter of righteousness.

[2] Only YHVH has guaranteed immortality: 1 Timothy 6:16. But Yeshua is YHVH, and you can be one of Yeshua’s literal sibling: John 1:12, Romans 8:14,19, Philippians 2:15, 1 John 3:1-2

1 Chronicles 29:11 Greatness, power, splendor, victory, and majesty are Yours, Yehovah, because everything that’s in the heavens and on the earth is Yours! The kingdom is Yours, Yehovah, and You are exalted as head over everything.

Psalm 22: 27-28 All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to Yehovah, and all the families from all the nations will bow down before You. 28 The kingdom is Yehovah’s. He is the ruler over the nations.

Psalm 45:6 Your throne, Elohim, will last for ever and ever. The scepter in Your kingdom is a scepter of justice.

The word “God”, as used here and in 2,605 other places, is “Elohiym”. Elohim is plural in the Hebrew! The singular form, “Elowahh”, is used only 57 times. Here is an example of the “plural plural” Elohim in action during the Judgment period. Do you suppose They were serious?:

Isaiah 22:5 The Sovereign Yehovah the Commander has planned a day of panic, trampling and perplexity, battering down walls and crying to the mountain [1] in the Valley of Vision.

[1] Compare this mountain to Isaiah 2:2-3, Micah 4:2 and Zechariah 8:3.

Psalm 145:9-12 Yehovah is good to everyone and merciful toward His entire creation. 10 Everything that You have made will thank You, Yehovah. Your kadosh ones will praise You. 11 They’ll speak of the splendor of Your Kingdom, and talk about Your power, 12 to reveal to ‘humanity’ His mighty acts, the splendor of the majesty of His Kingdom.

There is no reason to believe that these “mighty acts” will be performed from a distance!

Most people assume that when “LORD” is in all caps that it is always referring to Father. How then could anyone fit a 1,000 year delay in His coming into the following verse, as one example?

Isaiah 66:15 & 23 Yehovah will come with fire, and His chariots will be like a whirlwind! He will return with fierce anger, He will punish them with flames of fire. ... In the future, from one new moon to the next new moon, and from one Sabbath to the next Sabbath, all of humanity will come to worship before Me”, declares Yehovah.

When Father says to Yeshua “I will give You the nations for Your inheritance”, is that really done by remote control?

Psalm 2:6-12 “Yet I have set My King on My kadosh [holy] hill of Zion.” 7 I’ll announce Yehovah’s decree, He said to Me, “You are My Son; today I have become Your Father. 8 Ask me, and I’ll certainly give You the nations as Your inheritance, the remotest parts of the earth as Your property. 9 You’ll break them with an iron scepter. You’ll crush them to pieces like a pottery.” 10 So kings, show discernment. Be warned you leaders of the earth. 11 Serve Yehovah with reverential fear, and celebrate with trembling. 12 Kiss the Son or He’ll be angry, and you’ll die along the way, because His wrath can burst into flames. All those who take refuge in Him are blessed.

Acts 2:34-35 David didn’t ascend into the heavens, because he said himself, “YHVH said to His Word [Targum of Jonathan (Aramaic) Psalm 110:1]—Gill’s Commentary], ‘Seat Yourself on My right hand side 35 until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet.’”

Matthew 28:18 Yeshua came near during the conversation and said, “All authority has been given to Me in Heaven and on earth.

Romans 14:10-12 Why do you judge your fellow believers, or why do you consider your fellow believers to be worthless? We must all stand before the judgment seat of Messiah. 11 As it is written in the Scriptures, YHVH says, “As surely as I live, every knee will bow to Me, and every tongue will praise Me.” 12 So then each of us must answer to YHVH for ourselves.

Here is a segment from The Great and Awesome Day of Yehovah (the “Lord”)

John 14:2-3, 21 There are many dwelling places in My Father’s house, otherwise, I would have told you. I’m going to prepare a place for you to live. 3 If I go to prepare that place for you, I’ll appear publicly again and accept you as My own, so that you can be where I am. ... 21 Anyone who accepts My Commandments and obeys them is someone who loves Me. My Father will love anyone who loves Me, as will I, and I’ll reveal Myself to them.”

This verse has been used for centuries to justify the idea of going to heaven. However, if there is any doubt about who does the traveling, the following words from the same conversation leave no doubts.

John 14:23 Yeshua replied, “Anyone who loves Me obeys My teachings. My Father will love them, and WE WILL COME TO THEM and make Our living quarters [mansion] with them!

These references to “mansions” and “home” are the only places that Strong’s #3438 are used in the entire Bible. They refer to the same event! We can determine from the above that Yeshua “will come again”. In His “Father’s house are many living quarters” (mansions); Yeshua will not come alone because “WE WILL COME TO THEM”, that is come to, “anyone” who “loves Me”. It should come as no surprise that the Messiah said:

Revelation 22:12 I’ll come quickly! My compensation is with Me, to pay everyone according to what they’ve done.

The reward of eternal life is given to us in NEW JERUSALEM, Their, and our, home or abode!

Father and the Human Son will rule side by side!

As a parting comment; again as mentioned in Chapter 3, if the following statements are “first contact” references, Father and the Son will make their first appearances on separate mountains.

Zechariah 14:3-5 Then Yehovah [the Son] will go out and wage war against those nations, as He previously fought in battle. 4 And in that day His [Yeshua’s (Jesus’s)] feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem. And the Mount of Olives will be split in two, from east to west, forming a very large valley, [Elohim is on Mt. Zion, Isaiah 10:12] so that half of the mountain will move toward the north and the other half toward the south. 5 You’ll flee by My mountain valley, because My mountain valley will reach to Azel. Yes, you’ll flee just like you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Yehovah my Elohim will come, and all of the kadosh ones with Him.

Revelation 14:1 Then I looked, and the Lamb was standing on Mount Zion, and with Him were 144,000 people who had His name and His Father’s name written on their foreheads.

This addendum was compiled to refute the other “left behind” theory, where Father is purportedly abandoned to the “outer darkness” of endless space for a thousand years.
