(Claiming The Inheritance – Part 4)
or those who visit the official Creation Seventh Day Adventist website, and go from there to the CSDA Academy Media page, you may see a similarity between this Claiming The Inheritance series and the several-sectioned “Church Membership” sermon. This is not a coincidence, for the authors of those lessons (both earthly and Heavenly) have been intimately involved in this final part of the Gospel Message. Israel has claimed Victory over the world, and is sealed by Tribe for translation to the eternal kingdom. This is the unification of the first three parts of these articles, and this final essay will tie it all together.
“Come up to us, and we will shew you a thing.” (1 Sam 14:12) This was the challenge made to Saul’s son Jonathan and his armor bearer by the enemies of the Israelites. It was a challenge. But is a challenge always made by an enemy? “After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.” (Rev 4:1) Yah called John the revelator “up” to show him the vision of the future. No, the call to “come up” is not always made by an enemy, but it is always a challenge.
So now with these words I challenge my readers. The world is being shaken apart: robberies, murders, and rapes are commonplace on this awful planet, in this shadowy kingdom. In this final phase, before the earth collapses under the weight of its own filth, we are summoned to separate ourselves from the systems of this world, this NIGHTMARE BABYLON, and be free. “Come up to us, and we will shew you a thing.”
We as Christians think we have problems in this life, but the truth is – you who are reading these words posted on this internet website through a computer monitor are probably among the privileged 15% or so in the world. We think we have problems, when none of us have likely seen a child starve to death. We have never spent our days scavenging for food in dark alleys or sparse wastelands. We think we have problems.
Let none of us look at our lives of relative luxury and say, “Not yet, Lord Yahshua.” Let none of us think that it’s not so bad: because for every abused child, for every victim of a violent or sexual crime, for every mother too poor to feed her family, every day is already the end of the world.
Help us to end it. Help us to share the True Gospel with all those who will listen. For the sake of every suffering soul and body, and for the sake of Christ, who dies anew with every aborted infant and suffers anew with every wounded man, let us say, “Come quickly, Lord Yahshua.” It has to end.
Let us therefore learn to be ready. We must go back to Creation, back to when all things on this planet were as they should have been. People these days speak of “getting back to their roots” in order to learn who they really are. I couldn’t agree more... and this is the way:
We have, in the past three articles, examined three aspects of where we came from. First we saw that we are the people of Yah: Israel, heir to the promises of Christ – heir to the inheritance of the New Earth described in Isaiah 65 & 66 and Revelation 21 & 22. Then we went back to Creation to find our identity: creations made in the image of the Most High, but found that now, after the fall, we have that same authority in Christ, to be re-created, and once again suited to live in the holy presence of Yah and His angels. “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” (2Cr 5:17) “And He that sat upon the Throne said, ‘Behold, I make all things new.’ And He said unto me, ‘Write: for these words are true and faithful.’” (Rev 21:5)
In the third essay, we read that the “remnant” of Israel is the tribe of Judah, and that the call is sounding in your ears now to cast off your chains, to break the seal on your heart which is imprinted with the crest of Babylon, to accept the holy and happy life being offered to you in this instant, and to be made ready for eternal, fulfilling life. In this essay, I want to press home the importance of this concept, of knowing who you are, and joining with those faithful who are going through this final day, and into the new morning.
We can begin at the end. The book of Revelation describes the sealing of these saints, of the earth’s final harvest. “Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand.” (Rev 7:5) Four more verses continue like that, with three Tribes each, making up the total of 12, the family of 144,000. But I want you to notice something significant. After the last tribe is sealed in Rev 7:8, there is no verse that says, “And I saw a multitude of others sealed, aside from these.” No, Revelation 7:9 does describe a “great multitude” of the redeemed, wearing white and carrying a palm branch. These are NOT, however, sealed.
In my next article, called “The Desire of Ages,” we will read Christ’s message to the church ages, and among them we find this, “Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.” (Rev 3:4) Notice that those who walk with Christ in white are NOT the same as those sealed. In fact, the age of Sardis has long passed, and all from that time period are dead. The “multitude in white” of chapter 7 is verily the redeemed saints, but they are not those whom Paul describes as “we which are alive and remain.” The implication of this is simple: “we which are alive and remain” are the ones that are sealed – they are SEALED – judged and pronounced fit for Heaven even before death.
In other words, ONLY those who are sealed will be alive and faithful till the very end. And just as importantly, ONLY those in a Tribe are sealed! You MUST be a member of Israel, of one of the twelve, in order to survive the return of the Son of Man. In my previous essay, I speculated that not all of the Tribes may be alive at the end, some perhaps from ages past. But there is no discrepancy here... All the faithful living will be sealed according to the number of their Tribe, even if not all 12 are active at the end. Now, the CSDA church (not denomination) is the Tribe of Judah – the first sealed, and the lion’s roar that ushers in the return of Yahshua. We are they that leave the doomed city in Jeremiah 24:1-7 and go into the safety of the new land, walking with the favor of the Living God.
So how do we go about finding our Tribe? And what does it mean to “join” it? We will look at that here. We saw already from article 3 that a Tribe is not held together by any doctrine other then the Word, it has no real leadership other than Christ Yahshua, it is free from the constructs and political systems of men entirely – it is held together by the bloodline only (spiritual bloodline in this case) ̵ and in regards to Judah specifically, it is held together by the bloodline of Yahshua Himself. We are His heirs, and His character is our heritage. Our inheritance is His inheritance, our Throne and our Victory are those He has earned. “The Spirit Itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with Him, that we may be also glorified together.” (Romans 8:16,17)
Notice that we also “suffer with Him.” Those who would marry Christ in the spirit will have many troubles in this world. “And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.” (Mat 9:29) I realize for some readers, this challenge presents an enormous test. To accept the light offered here, and to walk in it may mean forsaking friends, family, fellowship: and Christ is not insensitive to that, considering His own experiences. Neither am I, for I also had to leave loved ones to do the right thing, so I can keenly appreciate the sacrifice Yah is requiring in order to be a part of His true family. It is truly a death of self.
Is it easy to walk away from the life we once knew? No, assuredly not. For the natural man, it is quite impossible. The comforts of tradition and the familiarity of what we once believed is too great a form of bondage for any human being. But Christ comforts us, and gives us the grace to do it. “Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” (2 Peter 1:2-4) Yes, lust – carnal desire; desire for comfort, for security, even at the expense of your soul, or the souls of those you are called to help gather into the fold – this is the true reason many choose to avoid the light of this call to holiness. But we have the Promise, we have the Victory, and we DO overcome this in His name.
So we have said we are Israel, correct? Well, if that be the case, we might do well to consider this verse: “So all Israel were reckoned by genealogies; and, behold, they were written in the book of the kings of Israel and Judah, who were carried away to Babylon for their transgression.” (1 Cr 9:1) Notice here, though, that the book is clear to specify that the kings who owned these books were “carried away to Babylon for their transgression.” The kings who owned the Genealogies, Israel and Judah, were carried away for their transgression. That sounds like a familiar story.
“And Dinah the daughter of Leah, which she bare unto Jacob, went out to see the daughters of the land. And when Shechem the son of Hamor the Hivite, prince of the country, saw her, he took her, and lay with her, and defiled her. And his soul clave unto Dinah the daughter of Jacob, and he loved the damsel, and spake kindly unto the damsel.” (Gen 34:1-3) The connection is made this way: the pure woman, Dinah, left the security of her brothers, and father, and went to visit the “daughters of the land.” Bear in mind, I do not say she was responsible for the awful thing which was done to her, but this remains – it would not have happened had she not been THERE.
Connecting this to the last days, we have this, “So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And upon her forehead was a name written, ‘MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.’” (Rev 17:3,5) See that Mystery Babylon is the “mother of harlots.” Her daughters are the spiritual “harlot” organizations. Ellen White warned the SDA church against becoming a “sister to fallen Babylon.” We are everywhere warned against associating with the “daughters of the land.”
Again, Seth’s noble descendants were defiled by their connection with the “daughters of men” in Genesis 6:1-3. Concerning modern, spiritual Israel, we see that the warnings have gone unheeded, the parables have not been understood. The Seventh-Day Adventist Church, by reason of its favor in the eyes of Yah, allowed it’s pride to cause it to go “out to see the daughters of the land.” It left its Sabbath rest, the security of it’s separation from the world, and was deceived, and lain with, and defiled. By taking upon itself worldly authority and a legal presence, the SDA church has gone the way of all other state-church denominations, and as with Dinah, the world loved her! The kings of the world committed fornication with her, “and spake kindly unto the damsel.” The population of Israel was carried away to Babylon the moment the “head” of the Church (the General Conference, NOT Christ at this point) trademarked the name “Seventh-Day Adventist on behalf of the entire denomination,” as the paperwork read.
Of course, the Trademark apostasy isn’t in itself THE issue. It’s the natural result of the true problem – Israel doesn’t have the Victory. If it did, this unholy and demeaning episode would never have taken place. This is why even if the union between the SDA church was dissolved, or even if it later decides to withdraw it’s lawsuit... the poison is in there. “And if the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorcement, and giveth it in her hand, and sendeth her out of his house; or if the latter husband die, which took her to be his wife; Her former husband, which sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that is abomination before the LORD: and thou shalt not cause the land to sin, which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance.” (Deu 24:3,4) Even if the worldly relationship is ended, the woman is defiled in this case, and cannot be rejoined to Christ. It would damage the inheritance, which is what all these articles are about, anyway.
Even if we are no longer persecuted specifically for holding the name “Seventh Day Adventist,” the CSDA church is still holding onto the Victory teaching, and this, with other Biblical doctrines, will cause the General Conference to accuse us of not only using the Name unlawfully, but also of misrepresenting the doctrine of the Adventist Faith. I say this primarily to explain the difference between, not only the General Conference Seventh-Day Adventist Church, but also the vast canyon of separation between the CSDA and ANY other SDA “offshoot,” and verily from EVERY faith in the world. We are the only ones that teach the obtained victory, that everyone should have it, and that we DO – we are the only ones who CAN. We will be hated by ALL men, the world and the churches included, when we go to them as John the Baptist and say, “Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” (Mat 3:2)
They will say, “What? How is it you say unto us ‘repent,’ when we are already Christians, and already saved?” We will turn to the church LEADERS and say, “O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance: And think not to say within yourselves, ‘We have Abraham to our father,’ for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.” (Mat 3:7-10) Consider that the “woman” riding the beast of denominationality (many heads) in Revelation 17:3-6 Now I want you to read this: as the angel explains the vision of the unfaithful woman to John, he says, “And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.” (Rev 17:16)
It is the horns, the leaders, that will be at most fault. The woman who rides the beast to perdition is drunk, deceived and insensate. The leaders, by their desire for numbers, or fame, or wealth, make her desolate and naked by this: they eat her flesh and burn her – in other words, they consume her. Now my reader sees this, the laity is NOT our enemy! We love all men, and like Yah desire them to be saved – but in order for them to do it, they MUST come out from their fallen systems! Even the leaders are not truly our enemies, but as John said, they must humble themselves and “bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance.” Right after this is my oft-quoted 4th angel’s message in Revelation 18... the people must COME OUT to be truly saved!
“Come with us into the Bloodline and be Christians. Worship the Creator, and use the new heart He makes in you to accept the victory,” we say. “What?” they say again. “You now say we are not Christians? This arrogance is of Satan!” The scribes said of Christ, “He hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth He out devils.” (Mark 3:22) Again, the leaders will be especially opposed to our message, but all will be offended by our claims that if you do not live the “crucified life,” reckoning yourself dead to ALL sin in Christ (Gal 2:20 and others), you are not living the life He wants you to live; you are not fully converted to Christianity. As Peter during the trial of His master, you may love Him, you may follow Him, but you may still deny Him by your words and actions “sometimes.” Yahshua may be walking WITH you, He may be CARRYING you at this point, but until you claim the victory, He cannot live WITHIN you. This is what He died for, this is what He sent the Holy Spirit to teach us after His ascension. This is the Gospel.
Some see the Sabbath truth, and stop there. Some see the Victory and stop there. Some see both and stop there. Some see both of these and, being convinced the CSDA message is true and Scriptural, will leave their fallen organizations. They have done well. By this their works and decisions SHOW they have the Victory, and are ready to forsake all for Christ. But now they are only free, they are not – yet – sealed. They are FREE to be sealed, but until they take the NAME of Yah in their forehead, and join a tribe according to its name, they will not be numbered among the 144,000. They will not get through the judgment of the living alive. Will they be ultimately saved? Perhaps. If they honestly do not see the importance of taking the name CSDA in order to protest the Mark of the Beast (I do not see how it could be that they would hear the True Gospel and not desire to do this, but Yahshua alone is the judge of hearts), they may still have that Christlike character that suits them for heaven. But they will not get there directly; only the 144,000 do not see death, and maybe not even all of THESE will have NEVER died.
The Tribe of Judah, however, is the “Lion’s roar” that calls Christ back to earth. We are they who “sigh and that cry for all the abominations” (Ezek 9:4) in Jerusalem – the forsaking of the Spirit of Sabbath, the going down to Egypt, abandoning Christ, the Head. We are the 4th Angel of Revelation 18, declaring “Come out of her, ‘For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.’” (Rev 18:3) The unfaithful woman is drunk on wine, and of Judah, Israel said, “His eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white with milk.” (Gen 49:12) Our eyes are red with the wine, for we have seen the abomination of desolation. Our eyes are red from tears, from protest of the awful apostasy that results from a church forsaking her Husband. But our teeth are white with milk. We have not partaken of this awful sin ourselves, we have come out and stood separate. We have drunk from the land of our inheritance, that “good land, and a large [one] ... flowing with milk and honey.” (Exodus 3:8)
“What about unity,” they protest. “What about tolerance? How can this be that you claim to represent Christ, yet bring us division and sorrow?” This comes from us following the great commission, and we reply this way, Ezekiel 9:4 tells us that those who receive the seal of the living God in their foreheads (as per Rev 7), will PROTEST the compromise, idolatry, evolutionism and dilution which are rampant in ALL modern churches. Christ declared, “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.” (Mat 10:34) Yes, Yahshua our Redeemer was a Servant the first time He came to earth, but when He returns, He will be a Judge and a King. Can we afford to compromise on any least point in light of that great and terrible day which is fast approaching?
Let’s backtrack a little. I have been pressing this point: Victory only FREES you to be able to be sealed, it is not in itself the whole and complete sealing. We have seen from Revelation 7 that ONLY those sealed according to their Tribe, to the bloodline, can be translated after the manner of Elijah and Enoch. “Okay, so maybe your doctrine IS sound,” some of the less tradition-bound listeners may say, “but what’s the big deal about actually JOINING the church?” I dealt with “How do I know my church isn’t already one of the 12 tribes” in the third article, so here we examine what is so important about being IN a tribe in the first place.
“So all Israel were reckoned by genealogies;” reads the first part of 1 Cr 9:1. But again, notice it is specific in saying that the kings who owned this list of the Tribes and their members were they taken to Babylon. Now, if we go to the book of Haggai, we see this. “And the LORD stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and the spirit of Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, and the spirit of all the remnant of the people; and they came and did work in the house of the LORD of hosts, their God, In the four and twentieth day of the sixth month, in the second year of Darius the king.” (Hag 1:14,15)
Under King Zerubabbel, and under the high priest Joshua, the Temple of Yah was rebuilt. How here is an interesting note: The name Joshua (which is actually the same as Christ’s name Yahshua), means “Yah is salvation.” The name Zerubabbel means, “Begotten in Babylon.” Do you see this? Yes, Israel was carried away to Babylon; in these modern times, the 3 Angels of the Seventh Day Adventist church has been captured by the world, by the legal net of the Second Beast. But though in Babylon, yet the CSDA church has been called out. We have been “begotten in Babylon,” but we have returned to freedom with Yahshua (our Savior), and have begun to rebuild the walls of the Temple. When this spiritual Temple is complete, the 144,000 will have been gathered and sealed, and our Lord will return. “How is it you say that anything YOU do will determine when Christ shall return,” the semi-Christian world objects? We say, “It is written – And this Gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.” (Mat 24:14) I will examine this “rebuilding the temple” analogy later, but I pray the principle is clear enough for now.
There is something else said about this Zerubbabel, the governor of Judah, “‘In that day,’ saith the LORD of hosts, ‘will I take thee, O Zerubbabel, my servant, the son of Shealtiel, saith the LORD, and will make thee as a signet: for I have chosen thee,’ saith the LORD of hosts.” (Hag 2:23) The leader of Judah was called a signet – a SEAL. Now the word “signet” itself is interesting. This was a token of Judah’s authority as a son of Israel, which he traded away to Tamar for “favors” in Genesis, and Exodus 28:21 reads, “And the stones shall be with the names of the children of Israel, twelve, according to their names, like the engravings of a signet; every one with his name shall they be according to the twelve tribes.” This idea is echoed in Exodus 39:14 also.
Other than the seals mentioned as pertaining to the 12 divisions of Israel, (and a specific type mentioned for the High Priest in Exo 28:36, 39:30) Judah is the only tribe for which this honor is emphasized. The first and last instances of the word in the Holy Scriptures deal with the Signet or Seal of Judah. As we saw in Revelation 7, Judah is the first tribe sealed, and the reason for this is simple, the Tribe of Judah HAS the Signet. If there are other Tribes to be sealed in the last days, they must come TO Judah and THROUGH Judah in order to be ready for the return of the Son of Man.
But I still haven’t explained the importance of having a Tribe at all, have I? Very well, let us consider what happened AFTER Zerubbabel and Joshua rebuilt the temple. Nehemiah, who completed the construction, records this, “And my God put into mine heart to gather together the nobles, and the rulers, and the people, that they might be reckoned by genealogy. And I found a register of the genealogy of them which came up at the first, and found written therein, These are the children of the province, that went up out of the captivity, of those that had been carried away, whom Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon had carried away, and came again to Jerusalem and to Judah, every one unto his city; Who came with Zerubbabel, Jeshua, Nehemiah, Azariah, Raamiah, Nahamani, Mordecai, Bilshan, Mispereth, Bigvai, Nehum, Baanah. The number, I say, of the men of the people of Israel was this:” (Neh 7:5-7) and a long list of families and names followed.
At the end of this list, we find this written, “And of the priests: the children of Habaiah, the children of Koz, the children of Barzillai, which took one of the daughters of Barzillai the Gileadite to wife, and was called after their name. These sought their register among those that were reckoned by genealogy, but it was not found: therefore were they, as polluted, put from the priesthood.” (Neh 7:63,64)
It does not say that these priests were NOT Israelites, it says their names could not be found recorded in the genealogy. They were called after the name of “one of the daughters of Barzillai,” and therefore, could not trace their heritage back to those who were initially taken into Babylon. Peter says, “Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.” (1 Pet 2:5) Do you remember I referred to “rebuilding the Temple” of the 144,000 above? This is a hint of it – we are the stones of which the true Temple is made. But alas (or perhaps fortunately), only those sealed according to their Tribe are qualified, inspected, and approved of as building material for this eternal edifice.
Of the Judgment, we have two witnesses saying similar things: Daniel and John. “ I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of His head like the pure wool: His throne was like the fiery flame, and His wheels as burning fire. A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened.” (Dan 7:9,10) And again: “And I saw a great white throne, and Him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” (Rev 20:11,12,15)
Notice that in both cases, a “book” was opened. The ones whose names were written in the book were accepted by Him seated on the throne, and the others were sorrowfully cast away. The skeptic may protest, “But see here, my name is written already in Heaven. What does it matter if it’s recorded with one of you Tribe-people here on earth?” Well, I won’t debate whether or not someone’s name is written in the books of Heaven or not (how dare I), but “Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the LORD He is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else.” (Deu 4:39) In the “Lord’s prayer,” this line was recorded, “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.” (Mat 6:10)
That’s nice and all, but we can be more direct. Christ’s message to the last church age was preceded by, “These things saith He that is holy, He that is true, He that hath the key of David, He that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth.” (Rev 3:7) And in the Gospels He says, “And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” (Mat 16:19) Here again: Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” (Mat 18:18) The pattern should be clear. In matters of the will of the Father, in matters of Binding and Loosing, in matters of Acceptance and Rejection, only those things likewise witnessed in earth will be valid in Heaven. Read also the parable given in Matthew 22:1-14. Even those in the right “crowd,” even for those who have accepted Victory and have come into the barn like good wheat – there is still a sifting process, and those who aren’t wearing a “wedding garment” will be cast out. Victory frees you to be sealed, but your name must also be recorded on the books of Heaven and earth for the process to be complete.
“For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.” (1 John 5:7,8) The witness must be found in Heaven AND on earth in matters of eternal importance. The Key of David is an important aspect of this, and we will examine what this IS in future articles. What the key DOES however is to open and shut the gates of Heaven, and this we know: David was verily of the tribe of Judah.
We can conclude this way: We know the state of the world, that it NEEDS Christ to return. We know our responsibility, to hasten His coming by teaching His Gospel to all. We know we need His authority to do it, and His power, not our own – we need His victory in order to be faithful witnesses. We have seen that those Sealed constitute the 144,000 who are equipped to survive the final judgment of the living, and to stand peacefully and joyfully before the Face of Him seated at the throne. We have read that ONLY those sealed under the names of the 12 tribes of Israel will compose this number. The tribe of Judah, the Creation Seventh-Day Adventist Church says, “You have an inheritance. Come with us, and let us claim it. Sign your name on the roll of the true Church. Add your name to the genealogy by which all of Israel will be reckoned.” “Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel; Like these good figs, so will I acknowledge them that are carried away captive of Judah, whom I have sent out of this place into the land of the Chaldeans for their good.” (Jer 24:5)
We opened this article with a challenge, “Come up to us and we will shew you a thing.” Let us close with one also. “I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.” (Deu 30:19) The decision is yours to choose. In other words: You are not a victim! The world perishes, but you do not have to. Come out of her, and be separate, be clean, and Yah will accept you. Take His seal in your forehead (Rev 7:3), and He will call you into your Tribe. Judah roars this day, but it is a cry of victory, and a cry of protest. “The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from God.” (Psa 104:21) We seek not our comfort in the things of the world, for our inheritance is in another place, our inheritance is from Yah, and unto this country we look, claiming it as our own, for we have the deeds to the land: our names are recorded in Heaven... and on earth.
“Thus saith Yah, ‘Behold, I set before you the way of life, and the way of death.’” (Jer 21:8)
