The Seal of The Kingdom of YHVH
by Rav Sha'ul

 
             

Introduction

The Seal of YHVH or the protective shield over the minds of His servants is known as The Shema.  Shema is the Hebrew word for “hear” and comes from the definition of The Seal of YHVH in The Torah “Hear O Israel”.  That seal is the knowledge of YHVH, the declaration that He alone is God and there is no other.  A claim YHVH is very clear about making...  He alone is God and there is no other.  He alone is Creator and He did it alone all by Himself.  He alone is our savior, our redeemer:

Isaiah 44

24 "This is what YHWH says—  your Redeemer, who formed you in the womb:  I am YHWH, who has made all things,  who alone stretched out the heavens, who spread out the earth by myself,

Isaiah 24

15 Therefore in the east give glory to YHWH; exalt the name of YHWH, the God of Israel! 8 "I am YHWH; that is my name (not Yahusha, not LORD, and certainly not Jesus)! I will not give my glory to another or my praise to idols (no other, not even to His first born son! The name Yahusha even cries out “Yahuah is our savoir).

Jude 1:25

25 to Yahuah Our Savior, who alone is wise, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever.

Isaiah 42

5 This is what YHWH says— he who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread out the earth and all that comes out of it, who gives breath to its people, and life to those who walk on it:

Isaiah 45

5 I am YHWH, and there is no other; apart from me there is no God. …

18 For this is what YHWH says— he who created the heavens, he is God; he who fashioned and made the earth, he founded it; he did not create it to be empty, but formed it to be inhabited— he says: "I am YHWH, and there is no other."

Isaiah 46

5 "To whom will you compare me or count me equal?  To whom will you liken me that we may be compared (not even His messiah)? 8 "Remember this, fix it in mind (seal your mind with it), take it to heart (write it on your heart), you rebels. 9 Remember the former things, those of long ago; I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me. 10 I  make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I  say: My purpose will stand, and I  will do all that I  please.

The Seal of YHVH is very well defined as His Name written on our foreheads and those who know His Name and understand that He alone is God and there is no other.  He is not a trinity nor is He a bi-entity. To fully understand The Seal of YHVH we must understand and employ the intended physical to spiritual parallels given to us and how they were explained over time through progressive revelation and then transposed into His Kingdom, I will explain these in detail.

The Seal of The Kingdom of YHVH is clearly defined both in The Torah and The Yahushaic Covenant.  Let us first define exactly what that seal is.  The Seal of YHVH is quite literally His Name and the knowledge that He alone is God and it is “written” on the foreheads as a SEAL over the minds of those who will inhabit His Kingdom:

Revelation 3

12 Him who overcomes I will make a pillar in the temple of my God (those sealed will become The Temple of YHVH). Never again will he (YHVH) leave it (that Spiritual Temple). I will write on him (who overcomes) the name of my God (YHVH)

Revelation 7:3

3 "Do not harm the land or the sea or the trees until we put a seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God (YHVH)."

Revelation 9

4 They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any plant or tree, but only those people who did not have the seal of God (YHVH) on their foreheads.

Revelation 22

4 They will see his face, and his name (YHVH) will be (written/sealed) on their foreheads.

This seal is defined in detail in The Torah in Deuteronomy Chapter 6 below, in keeping with progressive revelation, physical to spiritual parallels, and transposition I will explain the meaning of these physical metaphors in (blue parenthesis):

Deuteronomy 6

6 “Now this is the commandment, the statutes and the judgments which YHVH your God has commanded me to teach you, that you might do them in the land where you are going over to possess it (the future Kingdom of YHVH), 2 so that you and your son and your grandson might fear YHVH your God, to keep all His statutes and His commandments (the governing constitution in The Kingdom of YHVH) which I command you, all the days of your life, and that your days may be prolonged (the promise for obedience found in The Law is Eternal Life). 3 O Israel, you should listen and be careful to do it, that it may be well with you and that you may multiply greatly, just as YHVH, the God of your fathers, has promised you, in a land flowing with milk and honey (the future Kingdom of YHVH).

4 Hear (Shema), O Israel! YHVH is our God, YHVH is one (God)! 5 You shall love YHVH your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. 6 These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be (written) on your heart (in The Yahushaic Covenant see Jeremiah 31:33). 7 You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up. 8 You shall bind them as a sign on your hand (the works of your hand) and they (His Law) shall be as frontals (or spiritual seal) on your forehead.

When questioned by the Pharisee (teacher of The Law) about what is the single greatest commandment, Yahusha declared The Shema, The Seal of YHVH by literally quoting Deuteronomy Chapter 6:

Mark 12:28-34 (NIV)

28 One of the teachers of the law (Torah) came and heard them debating. Noticing that Yahusha had given them a good answer, he asked him, "Of all the commandments, which is the most important?"  29 "The most important one," answered Yahusha (then he quoted Deuteronomy 6), "is this: 'Hear, O Israel, YHWH our God, YHVH is one. 30 Love YHVH your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.' 31 The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these."  32"Well said, teacher," the man replied. "You are right in saying that YHVH is one and there is no other but Him. 33 To love him with all your heart, with all your understanding and with all your strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself is more important than all burnt offerings and sacrifices."

Yahusha also proclaimed The Seal of YHVH to be essential to eternal life, just as it was defined in Deuteronomy 6 and confirmed in Revelation:

John 17:3

3 And this is eternal life, that they may know You (YHVH), the only true God (The Shema), AND (be in covenant with) Yahusha (the) Messiah whom You (YHVH) have sent (as the Passover Lamb to purchase that eternal life by covering the decrees in The Law that demand our death for transgressing His commandments and ordinances).
 

The Meaning of Frontals

We see that YHVH’s Law and specifically the declaration and knowledge that YHVH is ONE god (not a trinity or bi-entity) and there is no other God is said to be as frontals or protective shield on our foreheads:

Deuteronomy 6:8

they (His Law) shall be as frontals (or spiritual seal) on your forehead(Spiritual Mind).

The Frontal Bone is literally the protective shield in the cranium (physical metaphor) that protects the Frontal Lobe of the brain:

This physical to spiritual parallel employed by YHVH in Deuteronomy can only now be understood in the context it was meant.  Science has defined the purpose of the Frontal Lobe of the human brain and we can see why that lobe MUST be sealed by YHVH.

The Frontal Lobe has been identified and described as follows, according to Dr. Donald Stuss of The Rotman Research Institute:

The frontal lobe is a critical center and it controls the "essence" of our humanity.  The frontal lobes, which are also called the cerebral cortex, are the seat of emotions and judgments related to sympathy, which is the ability to feel sorrow for someone else's suffering, and empathy, which the ability to understand another's feelings and problems. They are also the seat of understanding humor, including subtle witticisms and word plays. The frontal lobes also recognizes sarcasm and irony. And they are where recognition of deception occurs guiding our judgment between right and wrong. The cerebral cortex, or frontal lobes, is indeed the seat of our essence and nature.

We need to always keep in the foremost of our mind that YHVH’s purpose is to govern the Universe with His sons.  The Frontal Lobe is critical in all aspects of judgment, empathy, knowing right from wrong.  YHVH literally provides a “protective shield” called The Seal of YHVH which protects that very part of our mind that enables us to have empathy toward others, recognize deceptive philosophies, and determines our essence and nature.

In effect those who have this seal have in the foremost of their mind the truth that YHVH is ONE God and that His Law defines what is right and wrong and that it is love (empathy) for others that are the foundation of that Law.  This is exactly what was declared by Yahusha when asked.

Yahusha demonstrated this SEAL and declared it THE GREATEST COMMANDMENT of all as he quoted Deut 6:

Mark 28-34 (NIV)

28 One of the teachers of the law (Torah) came and heard them debating. Noticing that Yahusha had given them a good answer, he asked him, "Of all the commandments, which is the most important?"  29 "The most important one," answered Yahusha (then he quoted The Shema in Deut. 6), "is this: 'Hear, O Israel, YHWH our Elohim, YHWH is one. 30 Love YHWH your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.' 31 The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these." 

We see Yahusha confirm that The Seal of YHVH is the Greatest Commandment of all.  He went on to explain that in that understanding that YHVH is the ONE and ONLY God our minds are sealed with the Love required to enter His Kingdom: Love YHVH and your neighbor.

Yahusha was not giving us two new commandments here that the “Church would be built upon” as the “Old Laws” were abolished.  Not at all, Yahusha was simply summarizing the 10 Commandments which were themselves a summary of the full set of 613 Laws.  The Pharisee understood that and declared Yahusha a “true teacher of The Law”. 

The first 5 Commandments instruct us in detail how to express our love toward YHVH.  The last 5 Commandments instruct us in detail how to express our love toward our neighbor.

We see below that both the Seal and Sign of The Kingdom of YHVH are expressed in the 10 Commandments:

How to love YHVH

How to love your neighbor

1.You shall have no other gods before me (The Seal of The Kingdom of YHVH)

2.You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in th waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, YHVH your God showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments. (The Seal of The Kingdom of YHVH)

3.You shall not misuse the name of YHVH your God, for YHVH will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name. (The Seal of The Kingdom of YHVH)

4.Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. the seventh day is a Sabbath to YHVH your God. (The Sign of The Kingdom of YHVH)

5.Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land YHVH your God is giving you (because your parents are given as proxies in YHVH’s stead so loving them is loving Him.)

6.You shall not murder (your neighbor).

7.You shall not commit adultery (with your neighbor’s wife)..

8.You shall not steal (from your neighbor).

9.You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.

10.You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.

The Pharisee understood that Yahusha was summing up The Law which was summed up into the 10 Commandments then further summarized into “love” by The Messiah.
