One Way, Two Gates.
Ok here is another one that may be controversial, due to the fact that what is explained below is very different than the common Christian Doctrine and in turn this difference is due to most people interpreting the scriptures not knowing and using the Name when calling on the Most High, both that of the Son and of the Father, as explained in the articles before this one, in this section "The Name Above Every Name".
There are a couple of a very revealing passages in the Good News of Matthew, which have been misunderstood, either by mistake or by will, to generate a great amount of fear in the people, and basically force them to become part of the church, or else be destined to end up in hell for eternity, teaching not the fear of YHWH (Pronounced Yahweh/Yahuéh) Almighty spoken of in scriptures, but instead to be afraid of God, while being taught false doctrines and lots of worldly positivism, turning religion into an emotion based money machine.
Though there is an eternal fire for the wicked without a doubt, the two gates described in Matthew are the two separate gates through which you can go into the kingdom, one is narrow and hard to go through and the other is wide and easy, though YHWH recommends earnestly to enter through the first.
13 Enter by(G1223) the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to(G1519) destruction, and there are many who go in by(G1223) it. 14 Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.
A primary preposition; to or into (indicating the point reached or entered), of place, time, or (figuratively) purpose (result, etc.); also in adverbial phrases.: - [abundant-] ly, against, among, as, at, [back-] ward, before, by, concerning, + continual, + far more exceeding, for [intent, purpose], fore, + forth, in (among, at unto, -so much that, -to), to the intent that, + of one mind, + never, of, (up-) on, + perish, + set at one again, (so) that, therefore (-unto), throughout, till, to (be, the end, -ward), (here-) until (-to), . . . ward, [where-] fore, with.Often used in composition with the same general import, but only with verbs (etc.) expressing motion (literallyor figuratively.
A primary preposition denoting the channel of an act; through (in very wide applications, local, causal or occasional). In composition it retains the same general import: - after, always, among, at, to avoid, because of (that), briefly, by, for (cause) . . . fore, from, in, by occasion of, of, by reason of, for sake, that, thereby, therefore, X though, through (-out), to, wherefore, with (-in). In composition it retains the same general import.
Therefore, since the Christian world preaches these two verses as meaning that ―only a very few will make it to heaven and the rest which are not part of our specific religious denomination or attending our church on Sundays are going straight to hell; according to the Strong’s Dictionary, for a more thorough understanding, the thirteenth verse could be translated as:
13 ―Enter in through the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads into the destruction, and there are many who go in through it.
Reading now both translations, we can see that the ―many talked about in the verse, said by Christian doctrines to be the people going to hell, do get into the Kingdom, since the verse is addressing the matter of how you can enter the Kingdom and not, whether you will enter hell or enter the Kingdom of YHWH, but rather, a narrow gate for those who have died in Yahushúa, for his testimony, for his Name and the few who enter the Kingdom alive during these end times and the wide gate for the others, called the Many who will have to be part of the destruction coming for the world to be cleansed by fire, those ―who go in through it, in other words who go into the Kingdom though the wide gate.
1 Corinthians 3:13-15
13 each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is. 14 If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. 15 If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.
As seen in the verses above, there are two groups of people which will eventually enter the Kingdom, the group who's work endures, will not suffer loss, which means that they will enter alive, and the bigger group, who's works won't pass the test of fire and will suffer loss, meaning that they will die during the coming tribulation, but still will eventually be resurrected by the Power and Favor of YHWH, so as through fire, being purified by the blood of the Messiah.
Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads into the life, and there are a few who find it.
These few who enter through the first gate, the difficult one, do not take part in the second death since they enter directly into life, remaining on earth for the Millennium.
6 Blessed and Set-Apart is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of YHWH and of The Messiah, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.
They will rule as a Kingdom of Priests under our Sovereign Yahushúa here on earth for a thousand years, being this, the real Sabbath, after 6 days of human History, 6 thousand years from our creation, comes the Day of our Sovereign, in which we rest from wickedness and from the things of the current sinful world, in new spiritual bodies, awaiting for Judgement day which comes at the end of the millennium, the end of the spiritual week, at this moment the rest of the souls, which went through destruction, will be resurrected to be judged, these being both the group of the many(sheep) and the wicked(goats), the many will enter the kingdom to be the people of it, to whom the Kingdom of Priest will minister, because they have been justified by the Blood of Yahushúa and the wicked will follow Lucifer and his angels to the everlasting fire.
Only a few will enter the kingdom alive, the pure hearted, who will come to know the truth by the favor of YHWH, while the many will go in, through the door into their destruction, and for each of these doors there is a spiritual key, both given to us already by YHWH as a gift, for us to choose, believe for justification(wide) and confession for salvation(narrow), very simple, either one or both, is up to you.
Reading in the Second Letter of Petter we read some verses that support this.
2 Peter 2:1-2
1But there were false prophets(prophets of the lie) also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers(teachers of the lie) among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies(false doctrines), even denying the Sovereign that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 2And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of Truth(Yahushúa) shall be evil spoken of.
The Many will bring destruction upon themselves(Wide Gate) because of speaking bad of the Way of Truth, Yahushúa, once it is presented to them and rejected, since only the Few will accept it.
2 Peter 2:4
4For if YHWH spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; 5And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person(Few), a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
3 Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints. 4 For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the Favor of our Mighty One into lewdness and deny the only YHWH Almighty and our Sovereign Yahushúa the Messiah.
5 But I want to remind you, though you once knew this, that YHWH, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe.
As explained before in the past chapters, Egypt represents the World, from which we as followers of the Messiah are supposed to leave, all Christians try to leave the world, but just a few make it through the narrow gate, only the few believe the whole truth, the many follow Moses out of Egypt(World) only, not worrying about having a personal relationship with YHWH Almighty, instead just following every worldly advice of their pastor, the few are those who believe the Name and the testimony of the Two Witnesses, who came with good news and eventually led them into the Promise Land, Yahushúa the son of Nun and Caleb son of Jephunneh, both also as a sign for the Two witnesses of the Last days and Yahushúa holding the Name which gives us Salvation and takes us into the Real Promise Land, the Eternal One, as the son of Nun took them into their physical promise land back in the day.
The last verse of the ones shown above, gives us a perfect example for those who do get out of the world(Egypt), but then don't believe the Two witnesses and decided not to follow Yahushúa, "having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe".
11 ‘Surely none of the men who came up from Egypt, from twenty years old and above, shall see the land of which I swore to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, because they have not wholly followed Me, 12 except Caleb the son of Jephunneh, the Kenizzite, and Joshua the son of Nun, for they have wholly followed the YHWH.’
The people decided not to listen to the testimony of these two Witnesses, instead people just rejected them as the world will reject the Two Witnesses.
10 And all the congregation said to stone them with stones....
The Keys to the Gates
There is only one way to YHWH, but there are two separate gates to enter His Kingdom, for which of course, there are two separate keys which are found in the Letter to the Romans.
9 that if you confess with your mouth Yahushúa is Sovereign and believe in your heart that the Almighty has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Based on the verse 9, the Wide gate is opened by believing in your heart that the Son of the Almighty came to earth to die for our sins and resurrected, no matter the name you preach and that is why this is the door through which the many will pass, since there are so many different Christian denominations, all confessing wrong names yet believing in their hearts that the Almighty resurrected His Son, the Narrow gate is opened by confessing the Names YHWH Yahushúa with our mouths, and of course for this to be done right, we must pronounce them as the Father Almighty told us to, as it was written by the inspiration of YHWH and not as all the corruptions available to the world.
All the people who proclaim Jesus as their savior will have a chance to choose their gate:
1st Key(For the wide gate) – Your heart believes in the miracle of the resurrection of the Son of Man.
(...with the heart one believes unto righteousness,...)
- Which means that by believing in the Messiah and that he died for your sins and was resurrected by the Almighty Creator, you are righteous.
1 Thessalonians 4:14
For if we believe that Yahushúa died and rose again, even so them also which sleep, in Yahushúa, will YHWH bring with him.
- You are justified by believing; in right standing with the Almighty YHWH, so therefore you become a citizen of the Kingdom of YHWH.
Therefore, as through one man‘s offense judgment came to all men, resulting in condemnation, even so through one Man‘s righteous act the free gift came to all men, resulting in justification of life.
(Notice the verse is about Justification and does not make mention of Names, neither of Adam nor Yahushúa but reads ―Man‖)
- But as Yahushúa said in John.
... ―Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of YHWH".
The Glad Tidings of Phillippos
97 But those who say first they must die and then resurrect deceive themselves. If they do not first accept His resurrection while they live, when they die they will receive nothing. Thus it is also said concerning the immersion in these Words, when they say that the immersion [into His name] is a great thing, because whoever accepts it shall live.
- So you become a legal citizen by believing in His resurrection, but to enter the Kingdom you need to be born again
Yahushúa answered, ―Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the Kingdom of YHWH.
Water = The Fluid in your Mother’s Womb (Earthly Mother)
Spirit = By receiving the Spirit of Truth (Spiritual Mother - Glad Tidings of Phillippos 18), which only comes in His Name.
Do not marvel that I said to you, ̳You must be born again.‘
1 Peter 1:23
having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the Word of YHWH which lives and abides forever
2nd Key (For the narrow gate) – Your mouth confesses Yahushúa the Messiah is Sovereign.
(―...with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.)
- This means you are automatically saved from the second death by the confession of your mouth and for the few(144k), even of the first death, because Yahushúa died for you and that’s why the enemy doesn’t want the Name to be uttered by your mouth.
Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.
1 Timothy 6:12
12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
1 John 4:15
15 Whoever confesses that Yahushúa is the Son of YHWH, YHWH abides in him, and he in YHWH.
2 Corinthians 4:13
13 And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believed and therefore I spoke,”we also believe and therefore speak,
- You are born again spiritually through calling on the Name with your mouth and receiving the Spirit of Truth.
"the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.
2 John 1:7
7 For many deceivers have gone out into the world who do not confess Yahushúa the Messiah as coming in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.
But the Helper, the Spirit of the Pure One that the Father will send in My Name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.
The Glad Tidings of Phillippos
63 If one is immersed into the water(Repentance of Sins) and comes up again without having accepted anything, and says ―I am an anointed one [―Christian in Greek], he has borrowed that name at interest. But if he receives the spirit of the Pure One, he possesses the gift of the name.
The Glad Tidings of Phillippos
96 One who will be immersed into the water, does he not go down into His death(Death of the Flesh)? But the Anointed One, by His coming out of the water, will purify him, so that those who have accepted the immersion into His name may be perfect, since He said, ―Let it be thus now, for it is proper to us, to fulfill the justification of all
- Being change from the inside out into what YHWH created you to be, being tested and purify by fire, as the gold, therefore not being necessary to go through death, for the few, since you have been born of water and of the spirit, however some have and will die for the Name of the Messiah and for the Testimony of course, those for whom it has been ordained, joining the Few in the Millennium, to live the Life YHWH intended for us ever since time began, given to us as a Favor.
3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Yahushúa the Anointed One were baptized into his death? 4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as the Anointed One was raised up from the dead by the Honor of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
―Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.
- When you believe and Confess His Word, Yahushúa, you are redeemed and part of a very small percentage of people in the world who will accept the whole truth, which starts by his Name, being in this way part of the Body of Yahushúa, while the many, represent the Blood of the Messiah since they must be cleansed in His blood, to receive white robes, their future perfect bodies, and enter the Kingdom of YHWH, after dying during the tribulation in one of the two harvests happening in the Last Trumpet, what most people describe as the rapture, it should be actually "raptures", unlike the common believe of only one Massive rapture, there is actually one for the Few and one for the Many, according the Book of Revelation.
-Reaping the Earth’s Harvest
14 Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and on the cloud sat One like the Son of Man, having on His head a golden crown, and in His hand a sharp sickle. 15 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to Him who sat on the cloud, “Thrust in Your sickle and reap, for the time has come for You to reap, for the harvest of the earth is ripe.” 16 So He who sat on the cloud thrust in His sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped.
-Reaping the Grapes of Wrath
17 Then another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.
18 And another angel came out from the altar, who had power over fire, and he cried with a loud cry to him who had the sharp sickle, saying, “Thrust in your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth, for her grapes are fully ripe.” 19 So the angel thrust his sickle into the earth and gathered the vine of the earth, and threw it into the great winepress of the wrath of YHWH. 20 And the winepress was trampled outside the city, and blood came out of the winepress, up to the horses’ bridles, for one thousand six hundred furlongs.
- This means that there are two Harvests, or as people would call them, "Raptures", one done by "One who is Like the Son of Man", and he reaps the Earth, which represents the Believers in the whole Truth, meaning the Two Keys, Believing and Confessing the Name, these represent the Wheat, used to make the Bread, which is the Body of the Messiah, after this small harvest, there is the harvest of Grapes, which is done by just "another angel" which could mean many things, these will die, most likely as some believe, it could be a way in which Illuminati plans to get rid of many Christians who would oppose them, the interesting things to notice about this second Harvest, is how it mentions that this other angel gathered "the vine of the earth", gathering the Grapes(the many), from the Earth(Believers), those Believers in the Resurrection of the Messiah, which are many, but who did not Believed nor Confessed His Name.
Most assuredly, I say to you, if anyone keeps My word he shall never see death.
This is my comfort in my affliction, for Your word has given me life.
- Those people who keep the Word Yahushúa, won’t have to go through death to be born spiritually but instead on that day, they will be changed in the blink of an eye, those who died for his Name sake, will immediately enter paradise where the rest of their fellow martyrs await for the new bodies, as stated in the fifth seal of the Book of Revelations being alive at all moments, instead of the many who are only justified and die during these times, they will have to sleep, until judgement day at the end of the Millennium, to enter the kingdom for their everlasting lives.
1 Corinthians 15:51
Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed
Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
1 Corinthians 15:1-2
1 Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, 2 by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you—unless you believed in vain.
- Don’t let go of the Word, Yâhu-shúa(YHWH-Delivers), to be saved from the tribulation
holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of the Messiah that I have not run in vain or labored in vain.
Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Yahushúa the Son of YHWH, let us hold fast our confession.
All you have to do is choose, either hold both keys for your justification and salvation provided by YHWH or only one key and join the many that will be only justified by their belief.
16 Then those who feared YHWH spoke to one another, And YHWH listened and heard them; So a book of remembrance was written before Him For those who fear YHWH and who meditate on His name. 17 ― They shall be Mine, says YHWH of hosts,
― On the day that I make them My jewels. And I will spare them As a man spares his own son who serves him.
18 Then you shall again discern Between the righteous and the wicked,
Between one who serves YHWH And one who does not serve Him.
2 Timothy 2:19
19 Nevertheless the solid foundation of YHWH stands, having this seal: “YHWH knows those who are His,” and, “Let everyone who names the Name of the Messiah depart from iniquity.”
5 Why has this people slidden back, Jerusalem, in a perpetual backsliding? They hold fast to deceit, They refuse to return.
6 I listened and heard, But they do not speak aright. No man repented of his wickedness, Saying, ̳What have I done?‘ Everyone turned to his own course, As the horse rushes into the battle.
We must choose between the truth and what the world teaches, the way it teaches it, which is a lie.
1 John 4:5
They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world(Jesus,God,Lord), and the world hears them.
Jesus is a name of the world, constantly being used as a cursed word all around the globe by all kinds of people, over and over again, in everyday life, in music, movies, television, etc.
1 John 2:15
Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with YHWH? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of YHWH.
1 John 3:23
And this is His commandment: that we should believe on the name of His Son Yahushúa the Messiah and love one another, as He gave us commandment.
And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name of YHWH Shall be saved.‘
But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of YHWH, to those who believe in His name:
1 John 3:1
Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of YHWH! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.
If you decide to keep his Name from now on...
1 John 3:13
Do not marvel, my brethren, if the world hates you.
16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of the Messiah, for it is the power of YHWH to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew(Yahuthim) first and also for the Greek(Hellenists).
Jews of course are those who physically are descendants of the tribe of Judah and the Greeks were one of many of the gentile nations.
Spiritually however the meaning of a Jew(Yahuthim) and a Greek(Hellenists) is described in the second and third chapter of the Letter to the Romans and can also be explain very easily.
Yahuthim = The followers of Yahu, who accept the truth; the sons of YHWH.
Hellenists = Those who use the Greek name Jesus and title Christ, who follow sun worship, the Many.
He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the Name of the only begotten Son of YHWH.
The Glad Tidings of Phillippos
72 The Truth has not come naked to this world, rather wrapped in symbols and images, since this (world) could not accept it otherwise. There is a birth from the First together with an Image born from the First. It is indeed necessary to be born from the First through the Image. What is the resurrection? It is fitting that the image should rise up in His likeness. It is appropriate to enter the bridal chamber with His Image in the Truth. This is the restoration. For it is appropriate to be born not only from the Words (names) of the Father and the Son by the spirit of the Pure One rather than also to be born from those themselves. But whoever is not procreated of them, if one does not obtain them (the names) for themselves, the name of anointed one will also be removed from him! But later, these names are to be conferred and one shall accept them in the aromatic anointing that comes, from the power of the gallows-cross. This power the delegates called: ―The right or the left
First we came to know the gospel through the established church and were introduce to Jesus, the image, then, now in the Spirit, YHWH brings us to the Reality of that image created by the world which is Yahushúa the Messiah.
The Glad Tidings of Phillippos
20 Yahushúa is a hidden name; the Anointed is a revealed name for this reason: Yahushúa does not exist in any other language, but His name is always Yahushúa as He calls Himself .
And I will wait upon YHWH, that hideth his face from the house of Jacob, and I will look for him.
The Glad Tidings of Phillippos
17 The authorities thought that it was by their own power and will they are doing what they do, but the spirit of the Pure One hiddenly accomplished everything through them as she wished.
Who has ascended into heaven, or descended? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has bound the waters in a garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name, and what is His Son‘s name, If you know?
The Glad Tidings of Phillippos
101 The anointing(Receiving the Spirit) is superior to the immersion(Baptism of Repentance), since it is by the anointing through which we have accepted the name of the Anointed One so we are called anointed ones; it was not by the immersion. Also He was called the Anointed One by the anointing, for the Father anointed the Son, moreover the Son anointed the delegates, furthermore these anointed us. Whoever has received the anointing is in possession of everything: he holds the resurrection, the Light, the gallows-cross, and the spirit of the Pure One. The Father granted Him this in the bridal chamber; He received it.
Do you receive it?
The anointing is the cover of the Spirit of YHWH, having been born again, the immersion is being cleansed of your sins, therefore just being justified, not yet a new born.
Romans 10:12-13*(The name of the savior concealed in the original text)
12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same L–rd(Yahu) over all is rich(Shua) unto all that call upon him. 13 For ―whoever calls on the name of YHWH shall be saved.
The Glad Tidings of Phillippos
53 If you say ―I am a Jew, nobody worries; If you say ―I am a Roman, nobody will trouble themselves; If you say ―I am Greek, barbarian, bondman, or free, nobody will be bothered. But at ―I am of Yahushúa the Anointed One‖, they shall tremble. May I speak and demonstrate thus, because they are not capable to resist this name!
Many believe and will fight literally till death saying that Names don't matter, that the Almighty doesn't care about how you call him, as long as you call, because he knows you heart, which in part is true, he does know your heart, but then why would he give you a Name and tell you to keep it for all generations and make it a commandment for salvation to believe it, to keep it and to confess it, people will get mad and avoid the subject thinking is too legalist or extremist to ask all Believers in the Father Almighty and His Son the Messiah, to call them by their Names YHWH and Yahushúa, but even in the times of the disciples, right after Yahushúa's ascension, Paul and others were having this discussion with the Jews, the wise men of the time, the Priests who claimed to followed to Law all the way and only the Law(Torah), about the Importance of the Names, which still nowadays seems worthless to many, counting most theologians, the wise men and priests of our times.
12 When Gallio was proconsul of Achaia, the Jews with one accord rose up against Paul and brought him to the judgment seat, 13 saying, “This fellow persuades men to worship YHWH contrary to the law.”
14 And when Paul was about to open his mouth, Gallio said to the Jews, “If it were a matter of wrongdoing or wicked crimes, O Jews, there would be reason why I should bear with you. 15 But if it is a question of words and names and your own law, look to it yourselves; for I do not want to be a judge of such matters.”
Gallio refused to judge Paul, because the issue which the Jews were holding against him was concerning, "words and Names, of their own law", nothing wicked, they were just prohibiting to call on the Names, they were against Paul preaching Yahushúa, since they had rejected all the prophecies in the Law(Torah).
Accepting and Confessing Yahushúa with your Mouth as Savior and Sovereign, is as simple as it is important, as seen during the last minutes of Yahushúa's death, YHWH amazingly using even the last moments of his life to give a beautiful example of acceptance, favor and salvation, for anybody who confesses, instead of those who are born a "Jew", since no matter who you are or what you have done, once you Confess, you are born again Spiritually as a Yahuthi.
39 Then one of the criminals who were hanged blasphemed Him, saying, “If You are the Messiah, save Yourself and us.”
40 But the other, answering, rebuked him, saying, “Do you not even fear YHWH, seeing you are under the same condemnation?41 And we indeed justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds; but this Man has done nothing wrong.” 42 Then he said to Yahushúa, “Sovereign, remember me when You come into Your kingdom.”
43 And Yahushúa said to him, “Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise.”
The other criminal rebuked the one who blasphemed, and while doing this, he confessed with his mouth that Yahushúa came from YHWH and had not done anything wrong, meaning was free of sin, which is a characteristic belonging only to the One Messiah, secondly he turns to Yahushúa himself and asks hims confessing him as "Sovereign", saying “Sovereign, remember me when You come into Your kingdom.”, first notice he didn't say Heaven, but Kingdom of YHWH, then Yahushúa answers, "suredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise.”, Yahushúa answered that that very day he would enter Paradise with him, not Heaven, not the Kingdom, since they were going to Paradise were the Pure Ones or "Saints" are awaiting for their new bodies according to the Fifth Seal and other scriptures, place where Adam and Eve where at first, it is also interesting to see how even though the forgiven criminal was dying with him, he would be made alive right away spiritually to enter paradise, instead of asleep(death) for years waiting for Judgement.
Letter of Bar-navy 16
7 I find, therefore, that a temple does exist. Learn, then, how it shall be built in the name of YHWH: before we believed in the Mighty Ones, the habitation of our heart was corrupt and weak, being indeed like the temple made with hands. For it was full of image worship, and was a habitation of demons, through our doing such things as were opposed to YHWH. 8 But it [the habitation of our heart] shall be built, observe ye, in the name of YHWH, in order that the temple of YHWH may be built in honor. 9 How? Learn: When we have received the forgiveness of sins, and placed our trust in the Name of YHWH, we have become new creatures, formed again from the beginning.
23Then one said to Him, “Sovereign, are there few who are saved?” And He said to them, 24 “Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be able. 25 When once the Master of the house has risen up and shut the door, and you begin to stand outside and knock at the door, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open for us,’ and He will answer and say to you, ‘I do not know you, where you are from,’
Here in Luke you can see another instance of what is discussed also in Matthew 7, first notice that Yahushúa would have not encourage them to enter the Kingdom through the Narrow gate if there was not other "easier" way to enter, also you can see how the question was, "are there few who are saved?”, already implying they are few, so as we have seen already, to be saved there is need confession of the Names, to come to know YHWH Yahushúa in a personal way and only the few will do this, which is what the Many(Christians) are missing, making them think they are entering through the narrow gate already, as their interpretation teaches, but they will get a surprise when the Few enter, the Many will be calling at the door and Yahushúa will answer, "I do not know you".
42 Nevertheless even among the rulers many believed in Him, but because of the Pharisees they did not confess Him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue; 43 for they loved the praise of men more than the praise of YHWH.
The verse above clearly says that they believed but did not confess Him, meaning that they did not confess his name"Yahushúa", since the verse is not saying "they did not confess it", as it would say if what they didn't confess was the fact that they believed in him, making it clear, for he who has ears to hear and eyes to see, that they were supposed to confess the Name with their mouths as explained above.
Many of the rulers believed(Wide) but did not confess(Narrow), for the same reason people don't want to confess and keep the Name nowadays, to not be outcasted by the people, who do not know or receive the name, "for they love the praise of men more than the praise of YHWH"; preachers don't want to loose their congregation for changing the name and the sheep don't want to be looked at as crazy, they want to fit somewhere and when it comes to Church, they want to receive honor and praises from their fellow Christians, by doing what the fellow christian expects without worrying as much about what YHWH expects.
