Otherworldly – The True Promised Land
In order to fully perceive, and this means “consciously grasp,” all that Yahweh intends in scripture, we must first discuss the overarching mandate about scripture. Two specific verses do this most crucial of tasks well:
The first spoken by Yahshua the Messiah when he states, “My Kingdom is not of this world.” (John 18:36) The word for Kingdom 0 (malkuw, malkuwth, malkuth, malkuyah) carries the definitions; “rule, dominion, realm.” Interestingly enough, it is also known as the “humility” branch of the Tree of Life within. And so we now grasp that Yahshua was saying to us that, “My ‘rulership, dominion, realm’ is not of the physical world man lives in.”
The second verse that magnifies a specific reality is found in Luke 17:21, “Neither will they say, ‘Look here!’ or; ‘Look there!’ For behold, the Kingdom of Yahweh is within (consciously among) you.”
And so it is with these scriptures and the many that uphold and affirm them, that we must come to a conclusion that will forever alter and illuminate perceptions that have been far too long held onto. With a simple question, we break through vast paradigms and open ourselves to a whole new world of thought processes; thought processes that as well, are not of this world. The question: “If the Kingdom of Yahweh is not of this world, but rather, the world within, then are any of His Laws, Commands, Precepts, Statutes and the like, for this world? This physical world?”
Utilizing this most holy of patterns, we now commence to answering one of the most poignant questions available to the seekers of absolute truth: “If His Kingdom is not of this physical world, then what is the ‘promised land,’ and what in fact is the ‘nation of Israyl; the people of Israyl?’”
We start in the garden (“hedge, protected”) and move on from there. Hedge, protected: Right away, upholding the mandated pattern, we see the garden as a place of protection, and this, over the processes of thought that would be available to mankind. Let’s look at a specific scripture to unveil the pattern even further.
“Then Yahweh blessed him and Yahweh said to him: ‘Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it: have rulership over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.’” (Genesis 1:28)
