The Realm of The Kingdom of Yahuah
by Rav Sha'ul

 

The realm governed by The Kingdom of YHVH is all of His Creation i.e. The Universe.  This Spiritual Truth was progressively disclosed over time through all 7 Covenants:

 

Progressive Revelation of The Realm

Edenic Covenant

The “realm” was very small, defined as The Garden of Eden.

Genesis 2

15 YHVH God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it (govern the Garden of Eden). 16 And YHVH our God commanded the man (The Law of YHVH introduced), “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; 17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (command), for when you eat from it you will certainly die (death decree).” (The Law of Sin and Death introduced)

Adamic/Noahic Covenants

After failing to properly govern The Garden of Eden by the “Commandments of YHVH”, the realm at that time was scaled down to a family unit.  Adam and Eve were “relieved” of their authority to govern any specific “realm” outside of learning to govern their own lives.  Adam, however, did display the kind of “love” required to govern.  He displayed that love toward his wife Eve.  Adam, knowing that he would die for disobeying YHVH, chose to “identify” with Eve in eating the Apple literally giving his life for Eve.  We learn that Adam’s dominion then was limited to that which he demonstrated love enough to die for it:

Genesis 3

16 To the woman he said, “I will make your pains in childbearing very severe; with painful labor you will give birth to children. Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you.”

So Adams “rule” was limited then to that of himself and his family.  We see below that because Adam failed to govern The Garden by the Righteous Law of YHVH.   YHVH revealed that those who don’t “keep The Law of YHVHwill not receive eternal life but “since from the ground you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return”.  Those disobedient to The Law of YHVH die… they do not govern.  That which Adam was intended to “take care of” was instead cursed because of his failure to properly govern it.  Adam now became a “slave” to the very realm he was intended to rule over.

Genesis 3

17 To Adam he (YHVH) said, “Because you listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat from it,’ “Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat food from it all the days of your life. 18 It will produce thorns and thistles for you and you will eat the plants of the field. 19 By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return.”

In effect, man was given a taste of the consequences of utterly failing to govern by The Law of YHVH (even as limited as man’s knowledge of The Law was at that time in the process of Progressive Revelation).  Man would have to “earn” his right to rule by first serving that which he is to governThe Sabbath Covenant was in effect, for 6,000 years man would have to “work” before he would be given rest and restored to his position of authority. 

This was an early shadow picture of the coming Messiah/King.  Like all the rest of the sons of YHVH, Yahusha too would have to come first as “The Suffering Servant” during the 6,000 year period and serve before he could reign. 

Galatians 4:1-7

1 Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, is no different from a servant, though he be master of all

Yahusha would be required to serve YHVH’s creation and future sons and earn his position as King over them before he could govern.  Yahusha would have to prove he was worthy to rule them by being willing to die for them first (just like Adam was willing to die for Eve).  Only upon Yahusha’s death as he identified with the sins of the world, was Yahusha resurrected and make proxy King at the right hand of YHVH.

There is no greater love than a man being willing to die for another man.  True authority is based on that kind of love!  A righteous ruler must love his “realm” enough to die for it.  Yahusha had to demonstrate his ability to keep The Law of YHVH before he could be crowned King.  It would not be until the fulfillment of The Sabbath Covenant when it was time for the curse of Adam to be lifted that Yahusha would return as “The Conquering King” and establish The Kingdom of YHVH.

Abrahamic Covenant

In The Abrahamic Covenant, the “realm” was extended beyond just the immediate family to a genetic bloodline that would run through Abraham/Isaac/Jacob and extend to Jacob’s 12 sons.  These 12 sons would evolve into 12 Tribes and would be known by the name Israel.

We see below that The Abraham Covenant has not been “abolished”.  Far from it; it is an everlasting covenant and it is from within this bloodline that a small remnant would be chosen to be sons of YHVH called Remnant Israel.  I will cover that in more detail when I discuss The Citizens of The Kingdom of YHVH.   We see the Land of Canaan promised to the descendants of Abraham; it wouldn’t be until later in The Mosaic Covenant that this promise is realized.

Genesis 17

3 Abram fell facedown, and YHVH said to him, 4 “As for me, this is my covenant with you: You will be the father of many nations. 5 No longer will you be called Abram; your name will be Abraham, for I have made you a father of many nations. 6 I will make you very fruitful; I will make nations of you, and kings will come from you. 7 I will establish my covenant as an everlasting covenant between me and you and your descendants after you for the generations to come, to be your God and the God of your descendants after you. 8 The whole land of Canaan, where you now reside as a foreigner, I will give as an everlasting possession (Land of Canaan is a physical shadow of The Universe i.e. physical to spiritual parallel) to you and your descendants after you; and I will be their God.”

9 Then God said to Abraham, “As for you, you must keep my covenant, you and your descendants after you for the generations to come. 10 This is my covenant with you and your descendants after you, the covenant you are to keep: Every male among you shall be circumcised. 11 You are to undergo circumcision, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and you (physical circumcision is a shadow of circumcision of the heart; physical to spiritual parallel).

Mosaic Covenant

In The Mosaic Covenant, the “realm” that the 12 Tribes of Israel would govern was given clearly defined borders known as the Land of Canaan or The Promised Land. 

What is interesting to note here is that Moses (who represented the transposition of from oral tradition to the written law) was not allowed to lead the children of Israel into The Promised Land of Canaan.   As a “Physical Shadow” of the later Spiritual Truth to follow, it was “Yahusha sun of Nun” that took the mantle of Moses and leads the children of Israel into the Promised Land of Canaan.  Foreshadowing the coming Messiah with the same name, Yahusha, who would transpose the “Written Law” in The Mosaic Covenant to the Spiritual Fullness of “Written on our Hearts” and lead us into The Spiritual Kingdom of YHVH (physical to spiritual parallels).

Joshua 1:1-6

1 After the death of Moses the servant of YHVH, YHVH said to Yahusha son of Nun, Moses’ aide: 2 “Moses my servant is dead. Now then, you and all these people, get ready to cross the Jordan River into the land I am about to give to them—to the Israelites. 3 I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses. 4 Your territory will extend from the desert to Lebanon, and from the great river, the Euphrates—all the Hittite country—to the Mediterranean Sea in the west. 5 No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you. 6 Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their ancestors to give them.

YHVH also introduces the concept of “inheritance to His sons” through progressive revelation in verse 6 above.

It is also worthy of note that it was not until AFTER YHVH fully disclosed His Law in writing (the governing constitution) that YHVH then allowed His chosen to enter The Promised Land.  The Written Law as the governing constitution of the physical Promised Land (physical to spiritual parallel).

Yahushaic Covenant

In The Yahushaic Covenant, the shadow picture of The Promised Land of Canaan known as the land of Israel was “fulfilled” Spiritually in two stages:

1.     First The Sabbath Covenant would be fulfilled and creation would enter a period of “rest” for a 1,000 years.  The “realm” of The Kingdom of YHVH would be limited to planet Earth in order to properly train the sons of YHVH to govern within that Kingdom. 

Revelation 5:10

10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

Revelation 20:6

6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of the Messiah, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

2.     Once the 1,000 year training period for His sons to learn their place in His government and rest for creation was complete, the final “realm” of The Kingdom of YHVH would be expanded to all of YHVH’s Creation (The Universe). 

Revelation 22:5

5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for YHVH gives them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.

The Yahushaic Covenant did not “replace” the other covenants in defining the “realm”.  The Yahushaic Covenant “fulfilled” them in their fullest Spiritual Reality.  Our (the sons of YHVH) primary responsibility to YHVH has always been to serve Him as Priest/Kings of our home first.  Then once we have our “house in order” our authority extends out to the community, province, and beyond until The Universe if properly governed in Righteousness.  I will cover The Yahushaic Covenant in full detail in my next book.

We have seen the “realm” of The Kingdom of YHVH progressively disclosed through the covenants in The Bible.  Each covenant valid and active in The Yahushaic Covenant as The 7th and final covenant YHVH made with man is the renewing of all previous 6 and bringing them to their “fulfillment” Spiritually.
