Do you honor and revere God the Father in Heaven?
Are you expecting to enter into heaven without doing that…?
Do you honor your mother and father on this earth who created you?
Do you revere your father and mother on this earth who created you?
Most people know and use the word honor which is used in Exodus 20:12 but most people don’t study the scriptures enough to know what it means… (in the Hebrew, not in English)
Most people don’t have a clue what the word “revere” in Leviticus 19:3 means…
Most people do not study the scriptures for themselves but rely on teachers and almost no where in the Bible are we instructed to reply on teachers. Teachers will not stand with anyone on the day of The Judgment. Everyone stands alone and is examined completely to see if they kept YHVH God the Father’s Commandments. From beginning to end in the Bible, we are instructed to hear The Word and obey The Word. That is the evidence of faith/true belief.
The word REVERE is a very bad translation and has almost no meaning in this modern world…
H3372 יָרֵא yârê’ yaw-ray’ A primitive root; to fear; morally to revere; causatively to frighten: – affright, be (make) afraid, dread (-ful), (put in) fear (-ful, -fully, -ing). (be had in) reverence (-end), X see, terrible (act, -ness, thing).
It is the same exact Hebrew Word used here:
Deuteronomy 5:29 Oh, that they had such a heart in them that they would FEAR Me and always keep all My commandments, that it might be well with them and with their children forever!
Jeremiah 5:22 Do you not FEAR Me?’ says YHVH.
‘Will you not tremble at My presence,
Who have placed the sand as the bound of the sea,
By a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass beyond it?
And though its waves toss to and fro,
Yet they cannot prevail;
Though they roar, yet they cannot pass over it.
For those who did not get it in Exodus 20:12 about honoring parents, YHVH qualifies the correct attitude and responsibility in Leviticus 19:3 by making it clear the level of seriousness He has about doing right by one’s parents…
And then, within the very same thought in Leviticus 19:3, YHVH forever links the keeping of His Sabbaths with honoring one’s earthly parents and shows us how totally serious He is about the responsibility we have to keep His Sabbaths…
There are no exceptions.
And that, dear friends, is why God’s Son said the only way to be saved and enter in eternal life is by obeying YHVH God the Father’s Commandments. All of them.
That is how God’s Son lived his life from beginning to end and now in heaven. God’s Son is our example of how to live our lives and be his image just like he is the image of his Father YHVH in heaven. Total FREEDOM in obedience!
No one goes to heaven without doing those things…
