EXODUS 20




Shemoth[i] 20:1 And Elohim spoke all these words, saying:
2 “I am Yahweh your Elohim, who brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim, out of the house of slavery.
3 You shall have no other gods before Me.
4 You do not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of that which is in the shamayim[ii] above, or which is in the earth beneath, or which is in the waters under the earth,
5 you do not bow down to them nor serve them. For I,Yahweh[iii] your Elohim[iv], am a jealous El[v], visiting the wickedness of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me,
6 but showing kindness to thousands, to those who love Me and guard My Commands.
7 You do not bring the Name of Yahweh your Elohim to naught, for Yahweh does not leave the one unpunished who brings His Name of naught.
8 Remember the Shabbat[vi] day, to qadosh it.
9 Six days you labour, and shall do all your work,
10 but the seventh day is a Shabbat of Yahweh your Elohim . You do not do any work-you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates.
11 For in six days Yahweh made the shamayim and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore Yahweh barakh[vii] the Shabbat day and qadosh it.
12 Respect your father and your mother, so that your days are prolonged upon the land which Yahweh your Elohim is giving you.
13  Honor your father and your mother, so that your days are prolonged upon the land which Yahweh your Elohim is giving you.
14 You shall not murder.
15 You shall not steal.
16 You shall not bear false witness against your neighbour.
17 You shall covet your neighbor’s house, you do not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.”
18 Now all the people witnessed the thunderings, the lightning flashes, the sound of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking; and  when the people saw it, they trembled and stood afar off.
I stop here because I want to speak about the fact that the Commandments are no longer kept by the followers of Messiah, the “Church” and other Messianic groups.
The name “YHWH” has been removed from the English translated Scriptures, and has been replaced with “the LORD.”  The fact that all the letters of lord are capital does not change the fact that Lord is not the Name of Yahweh, but a title. Why do you suppose they removed the Name?
I believe it has been done because they worshipped other gods, who are also called by the title “the Lord.” Therefore by giving Him the same title as all false gods, they could be worshipping any god at all and no one would know the difference. Yahweh is not pleased by this.
Devarim 4:2 “Do not add to the Word which I command you, and o not take away from it, so as to guard the Commands of YHWH your Elohim which I am commanding you.”
When we remove His Name and replace with any title that He has not given us, we are sinning against Him by breaking the Commandments.  When Mosheh was called to deliver Yisra’el from Pharaoh he asked Elohim what would he say to the leaders when they would ask him, “What is his Name? (Shemoth 3:13)
Bereshith 3: 14-15 And Elohim said to Mosheh (Moses), I am that which I am.” And He said, “Thus you are to say to the children of Yisra’el, ‘I am has sent me to you. 14 And Elohim said further to Mosheh, “thus you are to say to the children of Yisra’el, ‘YHWH Elohim of your fathers, the Elohim of Avraham, the Elohim of Yitschaq, and the Elohim of Ya’aqov, has sent me to you. This is My Name forever, and this is My remembrance to all generation.”
YHWH has given us His Name forever, and it is also given to all generations. It is not a Name for the Jews only, for He is the Elohim of all flesh. No one can presume to have the right to remove His Name for any reason. There is much dispute on how to pronounce His Name, and this is normal, since it has been kept hidden for many centuries!  However it is time now to begin to call our Creator YHWH, which is the Name He has given us, and pronounce it the best way we know how. We do this with great respect and great honor. I choose to pronounce His Name Yahweh, not Yahua, Yehovah, Yahuwah, Adonai, Hashem, or G’D. His Name is very important since He has given it to us 6823 times in His Word.  We honor His correct Name, and not a surrogate, for the power is in His Name.   
There is another Commandment that almost all Churches do not keep. I am talking about the Sabbath. We know that persecution began after all the apostles died.   Eventually in the third century Constantine decided with the leaders of the “church” to stop keeping the Sabbath day holy, and obligated the followers of Mashiach to worship on the venerable day of the sun. He did this because he was a Mithra sun god worshipper and wanted to continue to worship his god, even though he said he became a Christian.  Many “Christians” today are ignorant of this fact.
Romiyim (Romans) 1:25 “who changed the truth of Elohim into the falsehood, and worshipped and served what was created rather than the Creator, who is barukh (blessed) forever. Amen.”
 I cannot  speak in detail  about this now, but I want to remind all believers in Yahweh and His only Ben (Son), Yahoshua, to read the Scriptures and realize they are breaking the Commandments every time they go to church on Sunday, and do not keep the Sabbath set apart day.
Bereshith 2:1-3 Thus the heavens and the earth, and all the host of them, were finished.  2 And on the seventh day Elohim ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done.  3 Then Elohim blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it he rested from all His work which Elohim had created and made.
Wayyiqra (Leviticus) 26:3 “You shall keep My Sabbaths [viii]and reverence My Sanctuary; I am YHWH.
Shemoth 31:12-17 And YHWH spoke to Mosheh, saying, 13 Speak also to the children of Yisra’el, saying: ‘Surely  My Sabbaths you shall keep, for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations that you may know that I am Yahweh who sanctify you. 14 You shall keep the Sabbath, therefore, for it is holy to you. Everyone who profanes it shall surely be put to death; for whoever does any work on it , that person shall be cut off from among his people. 15 Work shall be done for six days, but the seventh is the Sabbath of rest, holy to YHWH. Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. 16 Therefore the children of Yisra’el shall keep the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations as a perpetual covenant. 17 It is a sign between Me and the children of Yisra’el forever; for in six days YHWH made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshes.”
Yahweh gave specific instructions concerning the Sabbath. On the seventh day we do not work. Either us or anyone else in our house or business, (Bereshith 20:10).
Yahweh has set apart or sanctified the seventh day because He chose to be honored on this day. He has the right to choose the day He wants us to worship Him. We cannot make our own time.  He has set times and seasons that He wants us to come near Him. The Feasts of Yahweh[ix] are also for all of us who have entered into Covenant with Him.
Yisra’el was a mixed multitude when they came out of Mitsrayim, (See Shemoth 12:38). And the ger or stranger was assimilated into one of the tribes. There are only twelve tribes. They became one with the Olive Tree.
Yirmeyahu (Jeremiah) 11:16 Yahweh called your name, Green Olive Tree, Lovely and of Good Fruit.
Yisra’el is the Olive Tree, and all who are following Mashiach are also grafted into this Olive Tree, therefore they have to keep the same Rules of the Kingdom of Yahweh.  Although some branches were cut off, Yahweh can graft them in again. And He has done this.
Romiyim (Romans) 11:17 And is some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree[x], were grafted in among them, and with them became a partaker of the root and fatness of the olive tree.
Those grafted branches, in this case, the believers in Yahoshua, need to obey the Covenant. The reason Yisra’el was cut off or divorced, is because they committed spiritual adultery. They forsook Yahweh and worshiped other gods. They stopped obeying His Kingdom rules and they were sent out of the Promised Land because they did not keep the Sabbaths.[xi]  The Sabbath is the visible sign of the Covenant. Everyone knows who we are if we keep the Sabbath. The Sabbath is His Sabbath, not a Jewish Sabbath, as many believe because of ignorance. There were no Jews on Mount Sinai, but a mixed multitude![xii] At Creation there was no Yisra’el or any Jew, but only Adam, the first created man. From Him the whole human race came into being. The Torah is for all. His Commandments are for all to obey.
 We are not the Creator, Master, or King.  We are not to rule Him, He who created us and gave us life, but He rules over us.
He has created us (Bereshith 1:26; 5:1; Devarim (Deut.) 4:32)
He is our Father ( Devarim 32:36; Shemu’el 1 (I Shemu’el 2:10).
He is our King (Tellim (Ps.10:16; 27:7) and Yochanan (John) 8:15-16)
He is also our Judge (See Bereshith 1:26; Devarim (Deut.) 14:1; Tehillim 96:13). 
He has the right to expect our obedience, and we should be very happy to do so.
The Sabbaths are binding. We are commanded to keep all of them.  The apostles always kept the Sabbath and all the Feasts with all their Sabbaths. Please understand that when you keep the Commandments you are blessed, and cursed if you do not, (Devarim/Deut. 28).  Each believer is going to be judged by the Scriptures, and not on what the pastor has taught them. The pastor has to give an account to Yahweh for teaching false doctrine, but each of us has the responsibility to read the Word and to do what it says.

YAHWEH KEEPS HIS COVENANT WITH MEN




Avram (Abram) was very faithful to Yahweh, and Yahweh made a Covenant with him.
Bereshith[i] 15:18 On the same day Yahweh[ii] made a Covenant with Avram, saying, “I have given this land to your seed, from the river of Mitsrayim (Egypt) to the great river, the River Perath (Euphrates), 19 with the Qeynite (Kenites), and the Qenizzite (Kenezzites), and the Qadmonite (Kadmonites), 20 and the Hittite, and Perizzites, and the Repha’im, 21 and the Amorite, and the Kena’anite, and the Girgshite and the Yebusite.”
This portion of Scripture is not received by the enemies of the descendants of Avram. They want to take away all the land in exchange for peace. But more land they get, and more they want. Their plan is to destroy Yisra’el for good.  They want to cast away Yisra’el to the sea, but in vain. Yahweh is in Covenant with Yisra’el, and no one can defeat them. Yahweh has chastised Yisra’el when needed, but He has kept His promises to bring them back.
Yirmeyahu (Jeremiah) 23:3-6 “Therefore I will gather the remnant of My flock out of all the lands where I have driven them, and shall bring them back to their fold; and they shall bear an increase.  4 And I shall  up shepherds over them who will feed them.  And they shall fear no more, nor be discouraged, nor shall they be lacking,” declares Yahweh. 5 See, the days are coming,” declares Yahweh, “That I shall raise for Dawid a Branch of righteousness; a Sovereign shall reign and prosper, and shall do right ruling and righteousness in the earth. 6 In His days Yahudah (Judah) shall be saved, and Yisra’el dwell safely. And this is His Name whereby He shall be called: YHWH  Tsidqenu." ( Yahweh our Righteousness.)
This prophecy is going to be completely fulfilled in the near future. So far, there are many Jewish people that have made Aliyah[iii]. The Mashiach will return and there will be no more wars for one thousand years. I cannot talk now about all the prophecies concerning the return of Yisra’el,which are been fulfilled even as I am writing this message.  But remember that since 1948 Yisra’el is back in her home land. Yisra’el is a nation and is very blessed indeed. The Chosen People are going back to their Home Land to stay, and Yahweh will never uproot them again. Yahweh is the Author of this Aliyah!  (See also Yechezqel[iv] 36:24-26; Yechezqel 37:5,6, 8-10,14; Yirmeyahu[v] 32:37:41)
Beloved reader, please read and meditate on all the Scriptures I have written, even in the last blogs I have made, and ask Yahweh to forgive you if you hate Yisra’el in your heart and want to destroy them. Remember that He blesses those who bless Yisra’el. Choose blessings instead of curses today! So be it.  

In Bereshith 16 we read that Sarai who was barren, decided to take things in her own hands and she gave her husband Avram to her maid Hagar.
Bereshith 16:2 So Sarai said to Avram, “See now, Yahweh has restrained me from bearing children. Please, go in to my maid; perhaps I shall obtain children by her.” And Avram heeded the voice of Sarai.”
The Hebrew letters of “Hagar” are  hey, gimmel, resh.  Gimmel and resh are the same root letters that reads ger, which means foreigner or stranger, and the hey stands for the, therefore we can read it in English as ‘the stranger’ or ‘the foreigner.’ She was a foreigner and an Egyptian. As we continue to read in the Scriptures we learn that Hagar conceived, but that caused a family problem.  Hagar became too proud of her exalted condition and Sarai sent her away. However Yahweh sent an angel to speak with her, and counseled  her to return to her mistress (see v. 8-10) and He, Yahweh, blessed the child.
Bereshith 16:11-13 And the messenger of Yahweh said to her, “See, you are conceiving and bearing a son, and shall call his name Yishma’el[vi], because Yahweh has heard your affliction. 12 And he is to be wild man, his hand against every one and every one’s hand against him, and dwell over against all his brothers.” 13 And  she called the Name of Yahweh who spoke to her, “You are the El who sees,” for she said, “Even here have I seen after Him who sees me?”
We can learn a very good lesson from this episode. First of all we learn that we cannot become conceited when Yahweh blesses us. Nevertheless, even when we do not behave correctly, Yahweh cares for each of us and uses every circumstance for our own good.
Romiyim (Romans) 8:28 And we know that all works together for good to those who love Elohim, to those who are called according to purpose.
Avram’s son Yishma’el had a purpose to fulfill in this life. Yahweh does not make mistakes. Sarai could have waited on Yahweh to give her a child, but even in her impatience she helped Ishma’el to be born, and was blessed because of his father Avram. Of course his life would cause a lot of pain to his brothers, but Yahweh worked and still works out everything for the good of all. We need to simply learn to wait to Yahweh, for He is faithful and will give us the desires of our hearts according to his will if we learn to submit to His perfect will. (Tehillim (Psalms) 37:4). Some times may seem impossible, but with Him it is possible. He gives us the favor and grace we need when we need it.
El SHADDAY APPEARS TO AVRAM
Bereshith 17:1-14 And it came to be when Avram was ninety-nine years old, that Yahweh appeared to Avram and said to him, “I am El Shaddai-walk before me and be perfect. 2 And I give My Covenant between Me and you, and shall greatly increase you.”3 And Avram fell on his face, and Elohim spoke with him, saying, 4 “As for Me, look, My Covenant is with you, and you shall become a father of many nations. 5 And no longer is your name called Avram, but your name shall be Avraham, because I shall make you a father of many nations. 6 And I shall make you bear fruit exceedingly and make nations of you, and sovereigns shall come from you. 7 And I shall establish My Covenant between Me and you and your seed after you in their generations, for an everlasting Covenant, to be Elohim to you and your seed after you. 8 And I shall give to you and your seed after you the land of your sojournings, all the land of Kena’an, as an everlasting possession. And I shall be their Elohim.”9 And Elohim said to Abraham, “As for you, guard My Covenant, you and your seed after you throughout their generations.  10 This is My Covenant which your guard between Me and you, and your seed after you: Every male child among you is to be circumcised. 11And you shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin, and it shall become a sign of the Covenant between Me and you. 12 And a son of eith6t days is circumcised by you, every male child in your generations, he who is born I your house or bought with silver from any foreigner who is not of your seed. 13 He who is born in your house, and he who is bought with your silver, has to be circumcised. So shall My Covenant be in your flesh, for an everlasting Covenant.”
Yahweh warns Avraham of the following:
14 “And an uncircumcised male child, who is not circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin, his life shall be cut off from his people –he has broken My Covenant.”
Yahweh gave Avraham the sign of the Covenant, which is circumcision. And this at times has been not understood by some people. But Avraham descendents have been faithful to fulfill this command. The seed of the promised son had to pass through the sign of the Covenant. Yishma’el was not the promised son of the Covenant. Also the seed had to be placed in Sarah’s womb and not a stranger.
SARAI NAME CHANGE!
15 And Elohim said to Avraham, “As for Sarai your wife, do not call her name Sarai, for Sarah is her name. 16 And I shall barakh her and also give you a son by her. And I shall barakh her, and she shall become nations-sovereigns of peoples are to be born her.”
Yahweh changed both Avram and Sarai’s Name by adding the “hey” (H) which is found twice in the Name YHWH. It is as though He placed His name on their names, and He exalted they names. Avraham and Sarah would become the grand- parents of Yisra’el.
ABRAHAM LAUGHS!
17 And Avraham fell on his face and laughed, and said in his heart, “is a child born to a man who is a hundred years old? Or is Sarah, who is ninety years old, to bear a child?”
Avraham is a little shaken by this word of Yahweh. He feels that Yahweh wants to bless Yishma’el. But this is not what He is saying, He wants Him to know that yes, Yishma’el is going to be blessed, (verses 18-20 )  but the Covenant He would establish only with Yitschaq which Sarah would bear to him.
21 “But My Covenant I establish with Yitschaq (Isaac), whom Sarah is to bear to you at this appointed time next year.”
The Scriptures are very clear. And although Yishma’el has been richly blessed, he was not the promised seed to Abraham. This situation has been the cause of many problems to Avraham descendants even up to now. But Yahweh had a specific plan for Avraham and would not change His mind concerning the Land of Yisra’el.
He has chosen a man, and He has blessed this man, Avraham for a specific purpose and that is to be a blessing to the Nations. And Avraham and Sarah and their descendants have been indeed a blessing to the nations. They have been blessed in every area of life, even though many have terribly persecuted them and continue to try to remove them from the earth. Yahweh has kept His Covenant to Avraham. He has given the land to his descendants and they are prospering.
All of us have received blessings from them. The greatest blessing has been they have given us the Mashiach, our Messiah, who according came at he expected time, died for the nation, and rose again. He is also coming back again according to Scripture to establish His Kingdom. I will speak more about this blessing on my next messages. Shalom.

ALL SOULS WILL LIVE FOREVER



We read in Bereshit[i]  chapters two and three that Adam did not keep the commandment of Yahweh to not eat of the tree of knowledge of Good and Evil. I am sure he received all the commandments, but he only disobeyed this one.
Bereshit 2:15-17 And Yahweh Elohim[ii] took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and to guard it. 16 And Yahweh Elohim commanded the man, saying, “Eat of every three of the garden, 17 but do not eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for in the day that you eat of you shall certainly die.”
The Hebrew language calls good and evil- tov v‘ra- which could mean all knowledge.
The result was that Adam and his wife Chava were removed from the presence of Yahweh in the garden, and were prevented to return. Yahweh[iii] did this in order to protect Adam’s life. He did not want him to eat from the Tree of Life and live forever in his lost state. Atonement would come in the future even for him when the Mashiach would come. And the promise of the Mashiach was also given at this occasion. First of all Yahweh cursed the serpent, and then He spoke to the  woman and increased her suffering in childbirth, but also gave the promise of a Deliverer. (Bereshit 3:14) 

Bereshit 3:15 “And I put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed. He shall crush your head, and you shall crush His heel.”
After making this promise Yahweh spoke to Adam. He now would be working very hard for Yahweh cursed the ground because of his sin. (Bereshit 3:17-19) But today we speak about life eternal.
We do not know exactly what took place between Chava, Adam, and the serpent. We suppose that the sin involved even more than what we know. For their eyes were open (Bereshit 3:7) to something they should not have to know: Evil.  We know that man was created to live forever if he would have listened and obeyed only Yahweh. However, because he did not guard and protect his wife, he also fell into sin with her. And He lost his precious intimate relationship with his Creator Yahweh, and was cast out of the house of Yahweh. The garden was a special place that Yahweh created just for mankind to enjoy. But in Adam we lost it. 

Bereshit  3:22 “Then Yahweh Elohim said, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever”- 23 therefore Yahweh  Elohim sent him out of the garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken.  24 So He drove out the man; and He placed cherubim at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life
YAHOSHUA IS THE BREAD OF LIFE
Yochanan (John) 6:48-51 “I am the bread of life.” 49 Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and are dead.  50-This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that one may eat of it and not die. 51”I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread; he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.”
Yochanan 14:1-4 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in Elohim, believe also in Me. 2 “In My Father’s house are many mansions, If it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3”And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself that where I am there you may be also. 4 and where I go you know, and the way you know.”

WE HAVE AN ETERNAL SOUL
The soul is eternal, for Yahweh is eternal. And Adam was created in the image of Elohim (Bereshit 1:27).  We read in Bereshit 2:7 “And Yahweh Elohim formed the man out of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils breath of life. And the man became a living soul.”
Breath in Hebrew (5397 Strong’s) is called “neshamah”  which means  wind, breath, intellect, inspiration, soul, spirit)
Soul in  Hebrew  is –Nefesh- a breathing creature. In this case a human being.  
Adam, after he sinned, he died – spiritually-, and eventually he also died physically, as all of us do as result of his sin.  But Adam was given time to repent and to serve Yahweh in his 930 years of life! (Bereshit 5:5).   He had done well because the son Sheth and all his other descendants knew Yahweh through for Him.
It is interesting that in spite of the judgment, Adam lived such long time, and we are alive and know Yahweh today because he did not die immediately.

The Scriptures say that the wicked are cut off.  (See Tehillim 37:2, 22,38  and in many other passages.) But Yahweh does not destroy the soul of the wicked, He punish them, and He keeps the soul of the just for eternity! 
“To cut off” can mean physical temporal death, or simply be removed from the congregation of Yahweh.  But according to the Scriptures it does not mean annihilation.
LAKE OF FIRE
Revelation 21:7-8 “He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be this Elohim, and he shall be My son. “But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”

The wicked are going to be in the lake of fire, with the beast with the false prophet.

Chazon (Revelation) 19:20 And the beast was seized, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he led astray those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshipped his image. The two were thrown alive into the lake of fire burning with sulphur.

Living eternally is not is not a false teaching. The false teaching is denying eternal life, either in heaven or in hell. Many unbelievers say that they enjoy their life now, for there is nothing after this life. This is the sin of unbelief, and unbelief is not allowed in Heaven with Yahoshua[iv].
The whole world learned from Adam, therefore even the cults have a knowledge of eternal life. The Scriptures do no lie. Even the devil is going to live forever in the lake of fire, as we have read. And he will not be alone, but have the sinners with him, and this is the Word of Yahweh.  
There is a judgment and a penalty the wicked need to go through. All of us will be judged. The very Word of Yahweh will judge us. Yahoshua said it this way:   
Yochanan 12:48 “He who rejects Me, and does not receive My Words, has one who judges him: My Words, has one who judges him: The Word that I have spoken shall judge him in the last day.”
Yochanan 1:1-2 In the beginning (Bereshit) was the Word, and the Word was with Elohim, and the Word was Elohim. 2 He was in the beginning with Elohim.
Yahoshua is the Aleph and Tav, not the Alpha and Omega. He spoke Hebrew as a Hebrew. But in the Chazon[v] 1:8 “I am the ‘Aleph’ and the ‘Tav’, Beginning and End, says Yahweh “who is and who was and who is to come, El Shaddai.”
You may want to read the Scriptures in the original Hebrew language and find the Aleph a Tav which is never translated into the English language. It is strongly believed it is speaking of Yahoshua our Mashiach.[vi]

PAUL’S  TESTIMONY
Pilippiyim (Philippians)1:23 “For I am hard-pressed between the two, having a desire to depart and be with Mashiach, which is far better, 24 Nevertheless to remain in the flesh is more needful for you.”
Are we smarter than this great apostle? He received so many revelations, and he himself was taken up to Heaven and saw things that he could not speak of. 

Qorin’tiyim 2 (2 Corinthians) 12:1 It is doubtless not profitable for me to boast, I will come to visions and revelations of the Master.  2 I know a man in Mashiach who fourteen years ago-whether in the body I do not know, or whether out of the body I do not know, Elohim[vii] knows, -such a one was caught up to the third heaven. 3 And I know such a man- whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, Elohim knows- 4 How he was caught up into Paradise and heard inexpressible words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter. 5 Of such one I will boast; yet of myself I will not boast, except in my infirmities.
SAVED SOULS ARE GOING TO BE IN HEAVEN.
Chazon (Revelation) 7:9 After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb.  13 -14 Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, “Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?  14 And I said to him, “Sir, you know. So he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them which in the blood of the Lamb. (Emphasis mine)
We are going to live forever and we are also going to be in Heaven.  
Qorin’tiyim1 (1 Corinthians) 15:53 For this corruptible must put on in corruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
We are going to live forever. Yahoshua did not have to die for us, if there was not life after death. But He did, and He also rose again. He rose again and He lives, and so we will. We will rise again and be with Him for all eternity, which is forever, and ever, and ever, and ever……
Luqas (Luke) 16:20-25 “ And there was a certain beggar named El’azar, being covered with sores, who was placed at his gate, 21 and longing to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table. Indeed, even the dogs came and licked his sores. 22 And it came to be that the beggar died, and was carried by the messengers to the bosom of Abraham. And the rich man also died and was buried. 23 And while suffering tortures in the Hades, having lifted up his eyes, he saw Abraham far away, and El’azar in his bosom. 24 And crying out he said, ‘Father Abraham, have compassion on me, and send El’azar to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I am suffering in this flame.’25 But Abraham said, ‘Son, remember that in your life you received your good, and likewise El’azar the evil, but now he is comforted and you are suffering.”
According to the Scriptures the righteous will go to heaven and will also inherit the earth. (Chazon (Rev. 5:10; Tehillim (Psalms 37:22). There are many more verses in the word on this subject. Yahweh will renew the heaven and the earth and we can live on the earth and in Heaven. We will not need a air ticket to fly.
Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 66:22 “For as the new heavens and the new earth which I will make shall remain before Me, says Yahweh…. .”
Chazon (Rev.) 21:1 Now I saw a renewed heaven and a renewed earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea.”
The lake of fire is prepared and those who refuse to serve Yahweh now in this life, and they will go the lake of fire to be tormented forever. But the righteous will enjoy intimacy with Yahweh and our Bridegroom Yahoshua, one Elohim. We will be also together with our family and friends who also believed in the Mashiach.  We will have great joy, and yes, we will worship our King and the Father with passion, and it will not be a burden!  It is our greatest desire to worship and adore Him who saved us from the fires of hell that we deserved. The wicked will be cut off in the sense they will not be allowed in the presence of Elohim, except to be judged and then sent to the place of suffering that they chose while on this earth. Yahweh is just, and we honor Him and glorify His Holy Name forever and ever and ever! The earth will also be given to us to enjoy once has been cleansed.
Shalom
