Everlasting Kingdom: Unraveling the Bible’s Secrets

Going to Heaven?

-or Staying on Earth? Addendum #1:



John 3:12-13 If I have spoken to you about earthly things and you don’t believe them, how could you believe if I tell you about things in the Heavenly realm? 13 NO ONE HAS GONE UP TO HEAVEN EXCEPT THE ONE WHO CAME DOWN FROM HEAVEN, the Human Son who is in Heaven. [Commentary]The Gabriel Bible

Precisely Where is the Kingdom of the Heavens from?

Genesis 17:7-8 I’ll establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you, thruout their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be your Elohim and the Elohim of your descendants after you. 8 I’ll give you and your descendants after you the land where you are living, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession. I’ll be their Elohim.

Exodus 15:18 Yehovah will reign forever and ever.

Psalm 22:27 The farthest horizons of the earth will acknowledge Yehovah and turn Him, and every family from every nation will bow down before Him. .

Psalm 72:11 May every king bow down before Him and every nation serve him.

Psalm 86:9 Every nation You’ve made will come and bow down before You, Sovereign. They’ll praise Your name.

Psalm 145:13 Your kingdom is an Everlasting Kingdom. Your dominion endures thruout every generation. [Aramaic: Yehovah is faithful in all His words, and loving in everything He does—Clarke’s Commentary]

Psalm 146:10 Yehovah will reign forever. Your Elohim, O Zion, thruout every generation. Praise Yah!

Isaiah 2:2-3 In the future, at the end of the 'age', Yehovah’s mountainous 'Temple' [1] will be established on the summits of the mountains and be borne above the hills, and all nations will beam [or flow] into it. 3 People from many nations will come and say, “Come, let’s go up to the mountain of Yehovah, to the House of Jacob’s Elohim. He’ll teach us His path to life and we’ll 'live' His way.” The Torah will go out from Zion and the Word of Yehovah from Jerusalem.

[1] There is no distinct word for Temple in Hebrew. House is the literal word.

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

Isaiah 9:6-7 A Child will be born for us, a Son is given to us. The government will rest on His shoulders. He’ll be named Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty Elohim, Everlasting Father, Peaceful Leader. 7 The expansion of His dominion and prosperity will never 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 Commander Yehovah will make it happen.

Isaiah 27:13 When That Day Comes, the Great Shofar [1] will sound, and those who were dying in the land of Assyria and those who were banished to the land of Egypt will come and worship Yehovah on the 'special' Mountain in Jerusalem.

[1] The “Great Shofar” of Isaiah 27, particularly vs 12-13 corresponds with the Seventh Shofar (“trumpet”) of Revelation 11:15—adding the pertinent backstory!

Isaiah 34:10 It won’t be quenched night or day. Its smoke will go up forever. From generation to generation it will remain deserted. No one will ever travel thru it.

Isaiah 44:23 Shout for joy, sky, because Yehovah has acted! Shout, you depths of the earth! Break into shouts of joy, you mountains, forests and every tree on them, because Yehovah has redeemed Jacob, and shows His splendor in Israel.

Isaiah 45:17-18 Israel will be liberated by Yehovah with an everlasting liberation. You won’t be ashamed or humiliated for ages everlasting. 18 This is what Yehovah says who created/transformed the universe, the Elohim who originally created the earth and put it in order, who established it, and did not create it as a desolate wasteland, who formed it to be inhabited. ”I am Yehovah, and there is no other.

Isaiah 49:6-7 He is saying: “It isn’t enough for You [just] be My Servant [Yeshua] to to reestablish the tribes of Jacob, and to bring back the Israelites who were 'spared.' I will also make You a light to the nations, so that You can bring My message of deliverance to the 'remotest parts' of the earth!” 7 This is what Yehovah the Redeemer of Israel, and its 'special' One, says to the despised One, the One the nation abhors, the Servant of rulers: “Kings will see You and rise, and leaders will bow down, because of Yehovah who is faithful, the 'special' One of Israel who has chosen You.

Isaiah 49:22-23The Sovereign Yehovah says: “I’ll 'wave' My hand in a summoning gesture to the nations. They’ll bring your sons in their 'arms', and your daughters will be carried on their shoulders. 23 Kings will be your foster fathers, and their queens your nursing mothers, they’ll bow down to you with their faces to the ground, and lick the dust at your feet, and you’ll [finally] realize that I am Yehovah. Those who anticipate My arrival won’t be disappointed.”

Isaiah 55:5 You [Israel] will summon nations you don’t know, and nations that didn’t know you will come running to you, because of Yehovah Your Elohim, the 'special' One of Israel, since He has honored you

Isaiah 60:3-6 Nations will come to your light, and kings will come to the brightness of your rising.

4 “'Take a look' all around. They all gather together, they come to you. Your sons will come from 'distant lands', and your daughters will be carried in their arms. 5 Then you’ll look around and be radiant, and you’ll be 'overcome with joy' because the wealth of the seas will be brought to you, and the wealth of the nations will come to you. 6 Vast caravans of camels will cover your land, the dromedaries of Midian and Ephah. All the people from Sheba will come bringing gold and frankincense and proclaiming the praises of Yehovah.

Isaiah 60:9-14 Without doubt people from the maritime regions will wait for Me, and the ships from Tarshish will arrive first, bringing your sons from 'distant lands', along with their silver and their gold for the 'honor' of Yehovah your Elohim and for the 'special' One of Israel, because He has clothed you with splendor.

10 “Foreigners will rebuild your walls, and their kings will serve you. I struck you in anger, but in My reconciliation I will have compassion on you. 11 Your gates will always be open, they’ll never be shut day or night so the nations can bring their wealth to you, with their kings being led in procession. 12 Any nation and kingdom that won’t serve you will be destroyed; those nations will be completely wasted.

13 “The splendor of Lebanon will come to you: fir trees, pines, and cypresses, to beautify the place of My 'Temple', and I’ll make the place of My feet splendid. 14 The descendants of those who oppressed you will come bowing to you, and everyone who despised you will bow down at your feet, and they’ll call you ‘The City of Yehovah’ and ‘The Zion of the 'special' One of Israel.’”

Isaiah 60:19-21 You will no longer need the sun to shine by day, or the moonlight to provide your light, because Yehovah will be your everlasting light, and your Elohim your splendor. 20 Your sun will no longer set, and your moon will no longer wane, because you will have Yehovah as your everlasting light, and the days of your mourning will be over. 21 Your people will all be righteous, they’ll inherit the land forever, a shoot that I planted, the work of My hands bringing about My splendor.

Isaiah 65:17-21 [1] “I’m going to create a New Heavens and a New Earth, and the previous ones won’t be remembered or come to mind! [This is in the context of burning the wicked and blessing the world’s better survivors at the end of the age as they live out their lives.] 18 Be glad and rejoice forever in what I’m going to create, because I’m creating [a New] Jerusalem for rejoicing, and her people a joy. [2] 19 I [Yehovah] will celebrate in Jerusalem and take delight in My people. Screaming and crying will never again be heard in the city. 20 “Never again will there be an infant who lives for only a few days, or an old man who hasn’t lived out his days. A son who only lives to be a hundred years old will die young, because a young man who dies at one hundred years of age will be considered cursed. [Only indecisive people live to 100, but then their shelf life expires.] 21 They’ll build houses to live in and eat fruit from the vineyards they plant.

[1] See my commentary in From 2024 to Eternity—scroll down to “The Sequence of End Time Events”. [2] In verses: 17-19: A common misconception is that somehow, without notice or reason, the timeline jumps to a time after the millennium! Yet there is no justification in postponing the crowning events in this eight chapter long finale of human and satanic rule that began in chapter 59!

Isaiah 66:22-23 As the New Heavens and the New Earth that I’ll make will endure in My presence”, declares Yehovah, “So your descendants and your name will endure. 23 “Then, from one New Moon to the next New Moon [every month!], and from one Sabbath to the next Sabbath [every week!], all of humanity will come to worship before Me”, declares Yehovah.

Jeremiah 16:19 Yehovah is my strength and my place of safety, my refuge in times of trouble. The nations will come to you from the farthest reaches of the earth, and say, “Our ancestors have inherited nothing but lies, nebulous things of no value.

Ezekiel 37:25-27They’ll live in the land that He gave to His servant Jacob, where their ancestors lived. They and their children and their grandchildren will live there forever, and His servant David will be their prince forever. 26 He’ll make a [New] Covenant of peace with them. It will be an EVERLASTING COVENANT [3] with them, and He’ll establish them and increase their numbers, and set His 'Cherished' Place among them forever. 27 His home [New Jerusalem] will also be ABOVE them. He’ll be their Elohim, and they’ll be His people.

Daniel 2:44-45 During the days of these kings [Barne’s], the Elohim of heaven will set up a Kingdom that will never be destroyed. [2] It’s sovereignty will never be given to other people. It will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, and it will be established forever. 45 This is the stone you saw cut from the mountain without human hands. It crushed the iron, bronze, clay, silver and gold. The great Elohim has revealed to the king what will happen in the future. The dream is true, and its interpretation certain.

[2] Babylon is destroyed by the Antimessiah’s kingdom, mentioned here, before the final “gentile” kingdom is replaced by the Everlasting Kingdom!

Daniel 7:14 He was given dominion, splendor and a Kingdom, so that people of every nation and language would serve Him. His Kingdom is an Everlasting Kingdom that will never pass away, and His Kingdom is one that will never be destroyed.

Daniel 7:18 But the 'chosen' ones [saints] of the Most Supreme will receive the Kingdom and possess the Kingdom forever, for all ages to come.

Daniel 7:22 until the Ancient of Days [the Father] came and pronounced judgment in favor of the 'chosen' ones of the Most Supreme, and the specified time came for the faithful to take possession of the Kingdom.

Daniel 7:27 The kingdom and the sovereignty, and the majesty of every kingdom under every sky will be given to the chosen ones, the people of the Most Supreme. His kingdom is an Everlasting Kingdom, and every king will serve, hear and obey Him.

Hosea 2:23 I’ll plant 'Israel' in the land for Myself. I’ll show love to those I called ‘Not loved’ and I’ll tell those who were not My people: ‘You are My people’, and they’ll say, ‘My Elohim’!”

Amos 9:11 When That Day Comes* I’ll restore David’s fallen tent and repair the gaps, and I’ll repair its ruins. I’ll rebuild them as they were long ago,

Micah 4:1-2 In the last days the mountain of Yehovah’s 'Temple' [New Jerusalem] will be established on the summits of the mountains, and will be borne above the hills. All nations will beam [or flow] into it. 2 Many nations will come and say, “Come, let’s go up to the mountain of Yehovah, to the Elohim of Jacob’s house, and He’ll teach us of His ways, and we can follow in His 'steps.'” The Torah [instruction] will go out from Zion, and the Word of Yehovah from Jerusalem.

Micah 4:7 and I’ll convert those who were lame survivors, and those who were exiles into a strong nation, and Yehovah will reign over them on Mount Zion from that time on and forever.

Zephaniah 3:9-10 Then I’ll purify and polish the people’s 'language' [a revamped Hebrew!] so that everyone can call on the name of Yehovah, serving Him shoulder to shoulder. 10 From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia, My worshipers, My dispersed people will bring My offerings.

Zechariah 2:11 Many nations will side with Yehovah When That Day Comes* and become My people. I’ll live among you, and you’ll know that Commander Yehovah has sent Me to you.

Zechariah 8:20-23 Commander Yehovah says: People and citizens from many cities will be coming. 21 The inhabitants of one city will go to another and say, ‘We should go at once to seek the favor of Yehovah, and to seek Commander Yehovah. I’ll be going too.’ 22 Many people and strong nations will come seeking [searching for, to consult] Commander Yehovah in Jerusalem, and pray to Yehovah!’”

23 “Commander Yehovah says that at that time, ten men from every language and nation will take hold of the 'tzitzits' [“tassels”] of a Jew, and say, ‘Let us go with you, because we’ve heard that Elohim is with you.’

Zechariah 14:9,16 Yehovah will be King over all the land [not earth, “eretz”, same word as v.10] [4]. When That Day Comes it will be Yehovah alone, and His name alone... 16 Then everyone who is left behind [survivors] from all the nations that come against Jerusalem will go up from year to year to worship Commander Yehovah and celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles.

[4] Optimists think Yehovah will be “King over all the earth” as soon as He sets foot on the Mount of Olives. In fact virtually every Bible translation says exactly that in Zechariah 14:9, as as the first 25 versions do here. The only version to get it right that I saw there was Young’s, because he was consistent. (I’d bet he likely wanted to make an exception.) The confusion remains because the word “earth” does not have a Hebrew equivalent. Translating eretz as earth very often doesn’t even make sense, depending on the context. The next verse Zechariah 14:10 provides the context. In the same context eretz is now translated as “land” by the vast majority of the versions that had just translated eretz as “earth”. Two versions were consistently wrong using “earth” in both verses. Possibly decades after the conquest of the land of Israel in this chapter, fighting will still take place in a peaceful unwalled state: Ezekiel 38 & 39.

Malachi 1:11 From the rising sun to where it sets, My name will be honored among the now pagan world [Barnes]. Incense and pure grain offerings will be offered everywhere in My name, because My name will be great among the pagans, says Yehovah the Commander!

Matthew 5:3,5 He said, “Those who are poor in spirit are blessed, because the Kingdom of the Heavens is theirs. 4 Those who mourn are blessed, because they’ll be comforted! 5 Those who are humble are blessed, because they’ll inherit the earth!... 5 Those who are humble are blessed, because they’ll inherit the earth!

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'.

Matthew 8:11 I am certain that many will come from the east and from the west and sit down with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob in the Kingdom of the Heavens,

Luke 1:33 He’ll reign over the descendants of Jacob forever in His unending Kingdom.” [3]

[3] It’s not just a millennial Kingdom: Psalms 145:3, Daniel 7:27, 2 Peter 1:11.[3] It’s not just a millennial Kingdom: Psalms 145:3, Daniel 7:27, 2 Peter 1:11.

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

Hebrews 1:8 But of the Son He said, “Your throne, O Yehovah, is for all eternity, and the scepter of Your Kingdom is a scepter of righteousness.

Revelation 3:12 I’ll make anyone who is victorious a pillar in the Temple of Yehovah, and they’ll never be separated from the assembly, and I’ll write Yehovah’s name on them, and the name of New Jerusalem that will descend from the heavens from my Aloha, and My own new name.


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

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

Revelation 15:4 Who won’t fear You Sovereign, and praise Your name, since You alone are 'peerless' and just. Every nation will come and worship in Your presence, because Your righteous acts have been revealed.

Revelation 19:6 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 Sovereign Yehovah the Sovereign reigns.

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’] [3] 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.

[3] This reads the same as the other Revelation references in Greek and Aramaic: “The Testimony of Yeshua” (Jesus). The KJV and quite a few other versions arbitrarily use somewhat different wording here.

Revelation 21:1-3 I saw a New Heaven and a New Earth, because the first heaven and the first earth were gone [1], and there was no more sea [2]. 2 I saw the 'cherished' city, the New Jerusalem, coming down out of Heaven from Yehovah, like a bride beautifully adorned for her husband [Isaiah 49:18]. 3 I heard a loud voice from the sky say, ‘Look, Yehovah’s tabernacle [dwelling place] is among humanity [Gr. anthropos]. He will live with them and they’ll be His people, and Yehovah will be with them, yes Yehovah Himself will be with them.”

[1] This is the equivalent of the new earth that appeared after Yehovah sent a great flood “to destroy the earth” in Genesis 9:11. [2] Which sea? Isaiah 11:14-16; Isaiah 51:10-11. The seas, plural, are well represented in the Everlasting Kingdom: Psalm 72:7-9; Isaiah 5:30; Isaiah 24:14-15; Isaiah 60:5; Jeremiah 31:35-36; Ezekiel 26:5 and 47:10,15; Habakkuk 2:14; Zephaniah 2:6-7 and Zechariah 14:8. Unfortunately many people believe that the New Heavens and New Earth don’t even arrive until after the thousand years! (See the time frame in Isaiah chapters 65 & 66.)
