Only The Jews?

The presented question was: “Will someone please explain, why do only Jews get to go to Heaven, and the rest of humanity, that Gd did create, go to some second kind of Heaven?”

The person who asked this question, it seems, heard a Rabbi make a similar statement. This upset the questioner greatly and she was confused and angry. Personally, I can understand the mood of the questioner, and I will say that I was very disturbed that any religious leader would or could say such a thing, but it is not unexpected, at least by me.

My responses follow:

To address, “Heaven”. There are two concepts of heaven generally.

One, things that the CREATOR CREATED – Genesis 1: 1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.(JPS 1917 Version, this is a commonly accepted translation, except that in the Hebrew(found in the Written TORAH scroll) text plural “HEAVENS”.) An easy understanding is “That which is not ON this World.” Which is much more than most can image for size. Something to keep in mind. The ALMIGHTY created the Heavens and there for is not bound by the Heavens and the Earth, being greater that all of this.

Two, various religions define it as the place you will attain to be with god(s). So if we keep in mind the One above, the size and power of the CREATOR, what kind of Heaven are we conceiving of here in Two?

Alternatively, there is a “WORLD TO COME”. Our soul is from the Spirit Of GOD. So, what are the parameters which define the next place? You could look at the “Last Day” writings. In Short, this Heavens and Earth will go away. And a New Heavens and Earth will replace them, thereby fulfilling the “I will Break My Covenants” prophecies.

The Next part to address is, “What Does Belong To The Jews Alone?”.

Let us start with the foretelling of Jacob to his sons, the last words in essence to each.

Genesis 49: 1 And Jacob called unto his sons, and said: ‘Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the end of days. . . . .
8 Judah, thee shall thy brethren praise; thy hand shall be on the neck of thine enemies; thy father’s sons shall bow down before thee.
9 Judah is a lion’s whelp; from the prey, my son, thou art gone up. He stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as a lioness; who shall rouse him up?
10 The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, as long as men come to Shiloh; and unto him shall the obedience of the peoples be.
11 Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass’s colt unto the choice vine; he washeth his garments in wine, and his vesture in the blood of grapes;
12 His eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white with milk.

Verse 10 above belongs to Judah(Jews) alone. In this the sceptre, referring to the kingship and law belong to the Line of Judah.This kingship begins and ends with David son of Jesse of the Tribe of Judah, King of Israel and the LAST KING. Ezekiel 37:24 And My servant David shall be king over them, and they all shall have one shepherd; they shall also walk in Mine ordinances, and observe My statutes, and do them. (This fulfills the promise made to David himself, by the LORD. It also makes verse 10 above true!)

Part of the promise to David:
2 Samuel 8:16 And thy house and thy kingdom shall be made sure for ever before thee; thy throne shall be established for ever.'(The WORD OF THE LORD to David King of Israel by the mouth of Nathan.)

Going to Heaven or the World To Come?

My understanding is that Only GOD’s Children or ISHRAEL(Rigtheous of GOD) will go to the World to Come. While Jews can be in this group, many of them will also not be there.

A False Shepherd: someone who gives directions, teaching and leading those people seeking G-D away from HIM. These are actually leading people away from G-D for their own pleasure. They abound everywhere and act more like the Snake in the Garden of Eden than A Shepherd of H’shem’s flock. *1 Sheperds?

I have found no validation for such a statement as the questioner asks(Opening lines above.). Nor has anyone come forth with proof from the Word of G-D either, in support of what we are upset about.

I have given a response to the writer, and now to you, explaining what I have found to be true by using the word of H’Shem found in the Torah(writings of Moses) and Tanach(Prophets sent by H’shem).

First issue: Only the Jews — Ezekiel 37, tells how G-D will bring the Jews and All of the Tribes of Israel back. A very good read, this is the Children of Ishrael not only Judah(Jews).

There is one law for Children of Israel/ and the stranger in the midst(not choosing to be of The Chosen)((Exodus 12:49) One law shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among you. (Numbers 15:16) One law and one manner shall be for you, and for the stranger that sojourneth with you.).
[A thought about “the stranger in the midst” above: The children of Israel/Ishrael are among all nations of the earth now, so by default is it that all people are among the Children of Israel? Is it not then,that all are able to be Ishrael?]

Another place is Isaiah 56, maybe an even better demonstration regarding those not of the Tribe of Judah. This passage speaks directly to those who have chosen to be joined to the Lord or that stranger’s son. H’shem has declared that they (Isaiah 56:7) Even them(the stranger’s son) will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called a house of prayer for all people. For Why and what?
Isaiah 56: 1 Thus saith the LORD: Keep ye justice, and do righteousness; for My salvation is near to come, and My favour to be revealed.
2 Happy is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that holdeth fast by it: that keepeth the sabbath from profaning it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil.
3 Neither let the alien, that hath joined himself to the LORD, speak, saying: ‘The LORD will surely separate me from His people’; neither let the eunuch say: ‘Behold, I am a dry tree.’

This part relates to the End of Days, and there are great amounts of Prophesy regarding what will happen and when. If you chose G-D as your G-d and as Isaiah reports it: “(Isaiah 56:6) Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the LORD, to serve him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant;(Isaiah 56:7) Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.

But that will not be a great mass of people compared to the number of souls which will not be there. See: “One Of A City

Fear not what the people say, but truly seek the Lord our G-D with all of your heart, all of your soul and all of your being, for it is the Lord G-D that is my Salvation and He does not Sleep nor Goes on vacation. His full plan for my life is unknown to me, only HE has been my protector all the days of my life. G-d is Righteous in deed and judgment. B’’H’shem.

This can go on as long as you want me to show you H’shem and what we are to do. Did I go to deep? Was I easy to understand? Do you have questions? Send me an email by selecting the icon of an envelope below.

Can not read Biblical Hebrew? I offer this translation as a reasonable starting place.

I Use It: A TORAH which is also a Tanakh (Old Testament) containing the Prophets of GOD’S WORD for confirmation of the instructions, and the Writings which so the history of how we get it right or wrong and some consequences.

So what are You Going to Do About THAT? Knowing now that you are responsible your outcome.

Isaiah 10:23 For an extermination wholly determined shall the Lord, the GOD of hosts, make in the midst of all the earth.

Make sure that those YOU follow are capable of saving you.

I can show you the way, if you want to know.

IT is to our benefit to HEARKEN until the LIVING GOD OF ISHRAEL/ISRAEL, and to our pain and shame to do otherwise.

My prayer is that The LORD grant you eyes that see, ears that hear and an understanding heart, then you return unto HIM soon!(Isaiah 6: 9 And He said: ‘Go, and tell this people: hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not. 10 Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they, seeing with their eyes, and hearing with their ears, and understanding with their heart, return, and be healed.’)

*1 (Ezekiel 34:2) Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks?
