The time line for all human beings is upon us. We must realize there will be a stopping point, a day of reckoning, when we must make the decision to follow in Yahshua’s footsteps.

The marriage concept is in the scriptures. Why would Yahweh use this concept? He knew almost all civilization would or could understand this relationship. This covenant was instituted in the Garden of Eden with Adam and Eve. Marriage is honourable in all, Hebrews 13:4. Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. Revelation 19:7 and 9.

There are rules/guidelines in every relationship and Yahweh instructed Adam and Eve on the rules in the garden. He instructed them to help themselves to all the fruits in the garden except the tree of the knowledge of good and evil in the midst of the garden. Genesis 3:3 – … Elohim hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. But the serpent said to the woman, Ye shall not surely die. For Elohim doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as Elohim, knowing good and evil. The deceiver is ever present to try to nullify or make light of Yahweh and his instructions and commands.

The serpent tempted Eve and she did eat the fruit of that tree; she also gave it to Adam and he did eat; and the eyes of both were opened. Adam and Eve, until they disobeyed Yahweh, were naïve, sinless, innocent and righteous. Mankind has ever since been trying to regain that level of righteousness in which Adam and Eve were created.

Because of failings and breaking Yahweh’s commandments, mankind needed and still needs a Savior. A Savior who will show us the way back to the original relationship man (Adam) enjoyed with his Creator Yahweh; a relationship that was built on trust between the Creator and His Creation, (Yahweh and mankind).

Yahweh was very clear in his instructions to Adam and Eve when he told them to not eat of that tree, but the serpent countermanded Yahweh and put his own interpretation on it. The serpent said they would be as Elohim.

It isn’t much different today. With elections in the near future, we hear speeches by those running for office. Then we may hear two or more interpretations from others regarding those speeches. Those interpretations/interpreters can sway listeners to their way of thinking and this thinking could be 180 degrees different than the original points or thoughts of the speaker.

Genesis 3:1 – Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which Yahweh Elohim had made. Subtil means cunning (usually in a bad sense), crafty, etc. This beast has not changed his characteristics throughout his existence on this earth, so beware.

Yes, mankind needs a Savior to lead us back to the paradise man once had in the Garden of Eden. Yahshua the Messiah is the Savior; he will be successful and will accomplish this task.

Yahshua the Messiah died, was buried, and resurrected. As believers, He became our atonement and reconciled us back to Yahweh.

We know Yahshua the Messiah is ready for this battle and for the victory over all evil whatever the source. Israel, Yahweh’s chosen people, will have to depend on Yahshua the Messiah. Mankind will have to repent, those who have opposed Yahweh’s laws, including the Sabbath, will have to acknowledge and keep/observe/guard Yahweh’s royal law. This will be a hard decision for those who have not accepted Yahshua as their Savior. For centuries certain sects or groups have made it a giant doctrinal point that the Savior has not yet arrived on the scene.

Yahweh is a merciful Elohim; He has not opened up the earth and let the nonbelievers in His Son be annihilated. He has a work for these people; Genesis 49:8-12 – Judah has a special task. Verse 10, The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.

Ezekiel 37 states how the uniting of the tribes of Israel will take place. Verses 15-23 – The word of Yahweh came again unto me, saying, Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions: And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand. And when the children of thy people shall speak unto thee, saying, Wilt thou not shew us what thou meanest by these? Say unto them, Thus saith the Sovereign Yahweh; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand. And the sticks whereon thou writest shall be in thine hand before their eyes. And say unto them, Thus saith the Sovereign Yahweh; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land: And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all: Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwelling places, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their Elohim. Verse 26 – Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them:

We look around us at the present situation of Judah and Benjamin and the other ten tribes; and wonder how this can be accomplished. We need to leave that miracle up to Yahweh and His Son. Let us stand and see the salvation of Yahweh. Yahweh will put man into a better location than the Garden of Eden. The holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from Elohim out of heaven (see Revelation 21:1-27). That holy city, new Jerusalem, will come down at Yahweh’s timeline. New Jerusalem, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb.

Matthew 24:31 – And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

Do you want to be there? Be an overcomer, repent of sin, honor Yahweh and His only begotten Son, be baptized/immersed, keep the commandments Yahweh gave to all mankind. Give Yahshua the opportunity to save you.
