The Gospel Message – YHVH’s Purpose
by Rav Sha'ul

 

Matthew 10

7 And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The Kingdom of YHVH is at hand.’

So let’s examine exactly “What” that stated purpose is!  To understand that purpose is to know why you are here.  What is your purpose?  What was YHVH’s purpose in creating the Universe?  Why does YHVH suffer evil and evildoers? Every question is answered with the understanding of YHVH’s purpose.

Below I am going to paint a “picture” and summarize very simply the “purpose” of YHVH:

YHVH created the Universe as an inheritance for His sons.  His sons are being introduced to this creation and trained to serve in YHVH’s government/Kingdom through a life on Earth.  It is this life on Earth where the sons are introduced to their Father, and by following The Way established by the first born son they all obtain eternal life.  Upon resurrection, all sons inherit the Universe from their Father as co-heirs with their elder brother and first born son Yahusha who is The Messiah/Anointed King.  These sons are organized into a literal Kingdom or government and further trained to govern and rule during a 1,000 year span on Earth.  The first born son, Yahusha, reigns as King of Kings and High Priest.  Over the 1,000 year Sabbath Millennium Yahusha teaches the other sons to properly judge and to govern by The Torah which is the constitution of this government.  After the 1,000 year training period is over, this government or Kingdom grows exponentially until it effectively governs the entire Universe.  This “Kingdom” or “Government” which reigns eternally over creation is… “Heaven” also called The Kingdom of YHVH or Kingdom of Heaven.  This Kingdom is our destiny, this Universe is our inheritance.

Is the simplistic overview above true?  Let us take a quick tour of scripture and see. 

Below I am going to expand on the summary above and demonstrate through scripture the reality of it.  We will see below that YHVH created “all things” or The Universe to be given as an inheritance to His sons. 

 

The Universe is our inheritance

The inheritance goes to the first born son Yahusha. Then through Yahusha, as sons ourselves and brother to Yahusha (he is NOT our God), we are co-heirs to The Universe:

Romans 8:16-17

"The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of YHVH, and if children, then heirs -- heirs of YHVH and joint heirs with the Messiah, if indeed we suffer with him (Yahusha), that we may also be glorified together."

We all know that Yahusha (post resurrection) after completing his training on Earth was seated at YHVH’s right hand and given all authority over YHVH’s creation as an inheritance.  We, the rest of the sons of YHVH, are co-heirs with our first born brother but only those who like Yahusha complete their training on earth.

This Universe, our inheritance, is currently being held captive to sin and death… waiting in eager expectation for us, the sons of YHVH, to be introduced to His Creation.  At which time, when we are introduced (resurrected like Yahusha), we will liberate this creation and free it from bondage and govern it righteously for eternity.

Romans 8:19

“Creation eagerly awaits the revelation of the sons of YHVH”… vs. 21 “when creation will be set free form bondage and come into the glorious freedom of the sons of YHVH”

What Paul is stating is very true.  “Come into the glorious freedom of the sons of YHVH” is just another way of saying that creation will be liberated and governed by the sons of YHVH who are organized into a Kingdom.

We are introduced to His creation through a life on Earth but our ultimate revelation occurs when those chosen few sons are resurrected. 
 

This life is our training in His Law

During our life on Earth… we are trained for service in The Kingdom of YHVH by teachers and mentors (training aids organized into covenants).  This training process we are put through on earth comes in the form of predestined “test after test” of trials, tribulations, adversity, and affliction whereby we apply His Laws to our lives and grow.  It is through this process of tests and trials that we learn the meaning of His Righteous Laws and become trained to govern.

Romans 5

3 And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; 4 and perseverance, character; and character, hope.

We begin our journey as “children” of YHVH no different than a servant.  At the appointed time after being trained and tutored through covenants we graduate to full sonship and are no longer “children”.  Our inheritance is granted AFTER our training when we have grown beyond that of a childish selfish slave into an obedient son trained in His Righteousness which is defined by His Laws. 

Isaiah 30:20

20 And though YHVH give you the bread of adversity, and the water of affliction, yet shall not thy teachers be removed into a corner any more, but thine eyes shall (be spiritually opened to) see thy teachers (understand physical to spiritual parallels):

Galatians 4:1-7

1 Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, is no different from a slave, though he be master of all (we are destined to be masters of The Universe); 2 But as “children” we are under tutors and guardians (covenants, rehearsals, The Law) until the time appointed of the father (that we have mastered spiritual truth through physical examples). 6 And because you are (now) sons (after the appointed time of training), YHVH has (then after training) sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. 7 at which time you are no longer a child (you are trained in His Kingdom), but a son; and if a son, then (only once you have become a son and not a child) an heir of YHVH (to His Creation) through the Messiah (the first born son in the Family of YHVH).
 

We are being trained as priests and kings in The Kingdom of YHVH

The Kingdom of YHVH or Kingdom of Heaven or “Heaven” is a divine government made up of the family of YHVH.  Within this family government, we are trained as priests and kings during the Millennial Reign.

Revelation 5:10

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

That initial reign on Earth is for a 1,000 years.  During this time, the sons of YHVH are trained and organized into a kingdom or Divine Government of priests and kings and trained to rule.

2 Timothy 2:12

12 If we suffer, we shall also reign with Yahusha.

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 YHVH and of the Messiah, and shall reign (be kings) with him a thousand years.

 

We are in “Torah Training”

During these 1,000 years, we are trained in the Torah, which is the constitution of the divine government being assembled.  We see below that clearly in the coming kingdom that The Torah is the standard of government.  We also see that the Messiah Yahusha is the ultimate teacher of the Torah:

Isaiah 2:2-4

And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of YHVH’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. 3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of YHVH, to the house of the God of Jacob; and Yahusha will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the Torah and the word of YHVH from Jerusalem. 4 And Yahusha shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people:

 

Yahusha the Eternal King

We see below that the government that is being established is founded on the Messiah Yahusha.  That government will have no end (it is eternal) and will expand without end until all of creation, The Universe, is properly governed by this divine government made up of the sons of YHVH.  We learn that this child will be the first resurrected eternal and as such be the “father of everlasting life” just as Abraham is called “the father of faith”.  Being the first human perfect in this life, Yahusha will be resurrected and become the perfect image of YHVH i.e. His literal son.  As High Priest Yahusha will be a wonderful counselor; and as King he will bring peace to the sons of YHVH and YHVH’s creation.

Isaiah 9:6-7

"For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government shall be on his shoulders and he will be called Wonderful Counselor, (the perfect image of) Mighty God, (for) Father of Everlasting (life), and Prince of Peace." 

There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace, on the Throne of David and over His Kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness from then on and forevermore.

So there is no end to the increase of this government and it is eternal.  First, the kingdoms on Earth are turned over to the Messiah:

Revelation 21:7

15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of YHVH and of His the Messiah; and Yahusha shall reign for ever and ever.
 

The Kingdom of YHVH will rule the Universe for eternity

After we are trained to govern within the divine government called The Kingdom of YHVH… we rule for eternity over all of creation… there is no “need for the light of the sun” because this government will transcend this solar system and encompass this entire 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 Purpose - Summary

With all that being laid out in scripture let me again state the summarized “Purpose of YHVH” for simplicity:

YHVH created the Universe as an inheritance for His sons.  His sons are being introduced to this creation and trained to serve in YHVH’s government through a life on Earth.  It is this life on Earth where the sons are introduced to their Father, and by following The Way established by the first born son obtain eternal life.  Upon resurrection, all sons inherit the Universe from their Father as co-heirs with their elder brother and first born son Yahusha who is The Messiah.  These sons are organized into a literal Kingdom or government and further trained to govern and rule during a 1,000 year span on Earth.  The first born son, Yahusha, reigns as King of Kings and High Priest.  He teaches the other sons to properly judge and govern by The Torah (the constitution of this government) over the 1,000 year Sabbath Millennium.  After the 1,000 year training period is over, this government or Kingdom grows exponentially until it effectively governs the entire Universe.  This “Kingdom” or “Government” which reigns eternally over creation is… “Heaven” also called The Kingdom of YHVH and Kingdom of Heaven. This Kingdom is our destiny, this Universe is our inheritance.

It is with this purpose of YHVH in mind that we must approach The Bible and all things in it.  This life is our training; The Bible is our text book.
