Man cannot EARN entrance into YHWH’s Kingdom

While a man cannot earn entrance into YHWH’s Kingdom – that is a gift that YHWH must bestow (See Ephesians 2:8-9) – it is plain from Scripture that willful rebellion against YHWH’s standard of righteousness will keep a person out of the Kingdom. Consider the following scripture:

Ephesians 2:8-9: For by favor you have been saved, through belief, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of Elohim, it is not by works, so that no one should boast.

Galatians 5:19-21: And the works of the flesh are well-known, which are these: adultery, whoring, uncleanness, indecency, idolatry, drug sorcery, hatred, quarrels, jealousies, fits of rage, selfish ambitions, dissensions, factions, envy, murders, drunkenness, wild parties, and the like – of which I forewarn you, even as I also said before, that those who practice such as these shall not inherit the reign of Elohim.

I Corinthians 6:9-10: Do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the reign of Elohim? Do not be deceived. Neither those who whore, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor greedy of gain, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers shall inherit the reign of Elohim.

We can see the following, homosexuals (all gays period), thieves, coveters, and extortionists in the list of those who will be barred from entering the Kingdom of God.

Revelation 21:8: “But as for the cowardly, and untrustworthy, and abominable, and murderers, and those who whore, and drug sorcerers, and idolaters, and all the false, their part is in the lake which burns with fire and sulphur, which is the second death.”.

Revelation 22:15: “But outside are the dogs and those who enchant with drugs, and those who whore, and the murderers, and the idolaters, and all who love and do falsehood.

These examples show that there is a standard of conduct by which YHWH expects the heirs to His Kingdom to live. Oh and notice that even a coward is barred, someone who knows what to do and say yet fails to do it. Kind of like the 3rd servant in the parable of the talents. Resistance to His Ways will give you a one way ticket to the pit.

Choose wisely, choose life!
