who will be saved

Who Will Be Saved? (Part 1) – Israelites Only?


 

Who Will Be Saved? (Part 1) – What The Old Testament Says

Who will be saved? If you ask most persons who have read the Bible, they will most likely either say Christians will be saved or anyone can be saved.

If you ask a Hebrew Israelite however, you are most likely to hear that only Israelites, descendants of the 12 tribes of Israel can be saved.

As one who subscribes to no religion or religious order, I will seek to dig into this matter to see who is right. Also, I have no need to be biased as I have no doubt that I am indeed an Israelite in the flesh. Neither am I seeking acknowledgement nor praises from any man.

Therefore, knowing that salvation is available for me and other Israelites for sure, I will seek to see if the other nations have been shut out as many of our brothers teach.

The Danger of Religion

I have long discovered the danger of adding a label to one’s self and subscribing to a modern religious order. As such I have also realized that the whole truth is not in any denomination.

That is why we should be disciples of the Messiah who walk in obedience to the commandments and laws of the Most High YAHUAH TSEVA’OTH (Rev 14:12) and nothing else. Therefore this is the first part of a series that looks to dig up the truth as to who can be saved.

Why The Old Testament Is Most Important In Answering Who Will Be Saved?

This first episode in the series will focus on the Tanakh (old testament). This is because YAHUAH does nothing before first revealing it to his servants the prophets: those prophets who spake thus says YAHUAH.

Amo 3:7 Surely YAHUAH ELOHIYM will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.

Additionally, the Tankah (scripture) was given for our learning and correction:

2Ti 3:16-17 All scripture is given by inspiration of YAHUAH, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of ELOHIYM may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

As a result, no teaching that we can conclude from the new testament can overrule prophecies and writings of the old testament.

So listen this episode to see what scripture says about who can be saved.

BOUGHT WITH A PRICE
Exo 12:43 — Exo 12:49
And YAHUAH said unto Moses and Aaron, This is the ordinance of the passover: There shall no stranger eat thereof: But every man’s servant that is bought for money, when thou hast circumcised him (see below), then shall he eat thereof. A foreigner and an hired servant shall not eat thereof. In one house shall it be eaten; thou shalt not carry forth ought of the flesh abroad out of the house; neither shall ye break a bone thereof. All the congregation of Israel shall keep it. And when a stranger shall sojourn with thee, and will keep the passover to YAHUAH, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall be as one that is born in the land: for no uncircumcised person shall eat thereof. One law shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among you.

1Co 7:22 — 1Co 7:24
For he that is called in YAHUAH, being a servant, is YAHUAH’S freeman: likewise also he that is called, being free, is MESSIAH’s servant. Ye are bought with a price; be not ye the servants of men. Brethren, let every man, wherein he is called, therein abide with YAHUAH.

SAME THING HERE….

Brethren, let every man, wherein he is called, therein abide with ELOHIYM.

These were the cities appointed for all the children of Israel, and for the stranger that sojourneth among them, that whosoever killeth any person at unawares might flee thither, and not die by the hand of the avenger of blood, until he stood before the congregation.

LIMITATIONS OF THE STRANGER

Exo 29:32 — Exo 29:33
And Aaron and his sons shall eat the flesh of the ram, and the bread that is in the basket, by the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. And they shall eat those things wherewith the atonement was made, to consecrate and to sanctify them: but a stranger shall not eat thereof, because they are holy.

Num 16:1 — Num 16:3
Now Korah, the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi, and Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, and On, the son of Peleth, sons of Reuben, took men: And they rose up before Moses, with certain of the children of Israel, two hundred and fifty princes of the assembly, famous in the congregation, men of renown: And they gathered themselves together against Moses and against Aaron, and said unto them, Ye take too much upon you, seeing all the congregation are holy, every one of them, and YAHUAH is among them: wherefore then lift ye up yourselves above the congregation of YAHUAH?

Lev 22:10 — Lev 22:11
There shall no stranger eat of the holy thing: a sojourner of the priest, or an hired servant, shall not eat of the holy thing. But if the priest buy any soul with his money, he shall eat of it, and he that is born in his house: they shall eat of his meat.

1Co 6:19 — 1Co 6:20

Deu 17:15
Thou shalt in any wise set him king over thee, whom YAHUAH thy ELOHIYM shall choose: one from among thy brethren shalt thou set king over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger over thee, which is not thy brother.

STRANGER OFFER SACRIFICE

Num 15:14 — Num 15:16
And if a stranger sojourn with you, or whosoever be among you in your generations, and will offer an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto YAHUAH; as ye do, so he shall do. One ordinance shall be both for you of the congregation, and also for the stranger that sojourneth with you, an ordinance for ever in your generations: as ye are, so shall the stranger be before YAHUAH. One law and one manner shall be for you, and for the stranger that sojourneth with you.

YAHUAH NO RESPECTER OF PERSONS

Num 15:29 — Num 15:30
Ye shall have one law for him that sinneth through ignorance, both for him that is born among the children of Israel, and for the stranger that sojourneth among them.
But the soul that doeth ought presumptuously, whether he be born in the land, or a stranger, the same reproacheth YAHUAH; and that soul shall be cut off from among his people.

For every one of the house of Israel, or of the stranger that sojourneth in Israel, which separateth himself from me, and setteth up his idols in his heart, and putteth the stumblingblock of his iniquity before his face, and cometh to a prophet to enquire of him concerning me; I YAHUAH will answer him by myself: And I will set my face against that man, and will make him a sign and a proverb, and I will cut him off *from the midst of my people*; and ye shall know that I am YAHUAH.

 

PROVISION FOR THE ENEMIES OF ISRAEL WHO TOUCHED ISRAEL’S INHERITANCE

Jet 12:14
Thus saith YAHUAH against all mine evil neighbours, that touch the inheritance which I have caused my people Israel to inherit; Behold, I will pluck them out of their land, and pluck out the house of Judah from among them. And it shall come to pass, after that I have plucked them out I will return, and have compassion on them, and will bring them again, every man to his heritage, and every man to his land. And it shall come to pass, if they will diligently learn the ways of my people, to swear by my name, YAHUAH liveth; as they taught my people to swear by Baal; then shall they be built in the midst of my people. But if they will not obey, I will utterly pluck up and destroy that nation, saith YAHUAH.

 

PROVISION MADE FOR STRANGERS IN THE COMING KINGDOM OF ISRAEL

Ezk 47:21 — Ezk 47:23
So shall ye divide this land unto you according to the tribes of Israel.
And it shall come to pass, that ye shall divide it by lot for an inheritance unto you, and to the strangers that sojourn among you, which shall beget children among you: and they shall be unto you as born in the country among the children of Israel; they shall have inheritance with you among the tribes of Israel. And it shall come to pass, that in what tribe the stranger sojourneth, there shall ye give him his inheritance, saith YAHUAH ELOHIYM.

 

PRACTICAL EXAMPLES

Joshua 6:25
And Joshua saved Rahab the harlot alive, and her father’s household, and all that she had; and she dwelleth in Israel even unto this day; because she hid the messengers, which Joshua sent to spy out Jericho.

Hebrews 11:31
By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace.

 

DANGER OF OPPRESSING STRANGERS

Jer 7:6 — Jer 7:7
If ye oppress not the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and shed not innocent blood in this place, neither walk after other ELOHIYMs to your hurt: Then will I cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers, for ever and ever.

CONCLUSION

Amos 3:7
Surely YAHUAH Elohiym will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.

2Ti 3:16
All scripture is given by inspiration of ELOHIYM, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

NO MENTION WAS MADE OF OTHER PEOPLE BEING FREED FROM BONDAGE BUT A MIXED MULTITUDE WENT UP…

YAHUAH SPOKE THROUGH HIS PROPHETS THAT STRANGERS WILL OBEY AND SERVE HIM.

HE SPOKE THROUGH MOSES THAT THE GENTILES WILL SERVE HIM AND PROVOKE ISRAEL TO JEALOUSY.

PROVISION WAS MADE THROUGHOUT TORAH FOR STRANGERS TO PARTAKE OF HIS FEASTS AND HIS LAWS. IN FACT, THE LAW STATES…

Num 15:15
One ordinance shall be both for you of the congregation, and also for the stranger that sojourneth with you, an ordinance for ever in your generations: as ye are, so shall the stranger be before YAHUAH.

WE ALSO SEE THAT YAHUAH IS NO RESPECTOR OF PERSONS WHERE SIN IS CONCERNED.

Num 15:29 — Num 15:30
Ye shall have one law for him that sinneth through ignorance, both for him that is born among the children of Israel, and for the stranger that sojourneth among them.
But the soul that doeth ought presumptuously, whether he be born in the land, or a stranger, the same reproacheth YAHUAH; and that soul shall be cut off from among his people.

WE SEE PROVISION BEING MADE FOR ISRAEL’S ENEMIES TO REPENT AND JOIN THEMSELVES TO HIS PEOPLE in Jer 12:14 — Jer 12:17.

IN Jer 7:6 — Jer 7:7 WE SEE THIS WARNING AGAINST OPPRESSING THE STRANGER PREVENTING US FROM ENTERING THE PROMISED LAND.
If ye oppress not the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and shed not innocent blood in this place, neither walk after other elohiyms to your hurt: Then will I cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers, for ever and ever.

FINALLY, WE SEE PROVISION BEING MADE FOR STRANGERS TO ENTER THE KINGDOM IN WHICHEVER TRIBE THEY SOJOURN.

Ezk 47:21 — Ezk 47:23
So shall ye divide this land unto you according to the tribes of Israel.
And it shall come to pass, that ye shall divide it by lot for an inheritance unto you, and to the strangers that sojourn among you, which shall beget children among you: and they shall be unto you as born in the country among the children of Israel; they shall have inheritance with you among the tribes of Israel. And it shall come to pass, that in what tribe the stranger sojourneth, there shall ye give him his inheritance, saith YAHUAH ELOHIYM.
