“For with the heart one believes and thus has righteousness and with the mouth one confesses and thus has salvation. For the scripture says, ‘Everyone who believes in Him will not be put to shame.’ For there is no distinction between the Jew and the Greek (any nationality), for the same Lord is Lord of all, who richly blesses all who call on Him. For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” Romans 10:10-13
What does it mean to be saved and why would you want to be saved?
Some people want to be reincarnated as an animal or another person. What if reincarnation is discontinued before the remaining humans can be reincarnated? That means you will be stuck at the current psyche that you have in your death. Others believe enlightenment is passed from teacher to student and yet what miracles have we seen from those who claim to be enlightened?
As believers in Christ we receive the Holy Spirit directly from YHWH through Adonai Jesus. We receive a direct connection to the creator of the universe, rather than enlightenment being passed from another human. We also receive proof of the Spirit upon us in our daily lives unlike other religions.
What is after death?
Many just say there is darkness – nothing, or “I don’t know.”
There are many people who have died and claimed to have seen what is after death. In Greek mythology, Hades is an immortal that runs the underworld, the realm Tartarus, of which he rules over the dead and provides tortures to the dead. 
The opposite of Tartarus, is Elysium, which is paradise where immortals gain entrance through living a righteous life. 
Either way, Tartarus, or Elysium – you are immortal after death. In the book of Revelation, we are told Hades and Death are both thrown into the lake of fire that burns forever. Hades and Death are immortal beings.
“And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne. Then books were opened, and another book was opened—the book of life. So the dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to their deeds. The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and Death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each one was judged according to his deeds. Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death—the lake of fire. If anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, that person was thrown into the lake of fire.” Revelation 20:11-15
Now many people, Gnostic, Atheist alike, do not believe in God, yet many believe in an after life based on accounts of normal people throughout history, and by mediums – people who channel, or communicate with the dead, which is forbidden to do by YHWH.
There are varying opinion on the reality of this; some say it’s all a farce, others, that’s it’s real. Regardless of what you believe there are many accounts from many cultures recorded through history of communicating with the dead. In a Biblical story with King Saul, we find that once he can no longer communicate with God through the prophet Samuel, who dies, Saul seeks to conjure up the prophet through a medium. The Hebrew word for this is:
אוֹב – (ove) which means ‘necromancer’
“The woman (necromancer) replied to Saul, “I have seen one like a god coming up from the ground!” He said to her, “What about his appearance?” She said, “An old man is coming up! He is wrapped in a robe!”
“Then Saul realized it was Samuel, and he bowed his face toward the ground and kneeled down. Samuel said to Saul, “Why have you disturbed me by bringing me up?” 1 Samuel 28:12-15
According to this verse we see that Samuel ‘came up’ from somewhere. That somewhere is the grave, under death. Hades is overseer of what the Greeks call ‘Tartarus’. Samuel is now an immortal living in the realm of death and goes on to tell Saul,
וְיִתֵּ֣ן יְ֠הוָה גַּ֣ם אֶת־יִשְׂרָאֵ֤ל עִמְּךָ֙ בְּיַד־פְּלִשְׁתִּ֔ים וּמָחָ֕ר אַתָּ֥ה וּבָנֶ֖יךָ עִמִּ֑י גַּ֚ם אֶת־מַחֲנֵ֣ה יִשְׂרָאֵ֔ל יִתֵּ֥ן יְהוָ֖ה בְּיַד־פְּלִשְׁתִּֽים׃
“The Lord will hand you and Israel over to the Philistines. Tomorrow both you and your sons will be with me. The Lord will also hand the army of Israel over to the Philistines.” 1 Samuel 28:19
You may be asking, “why is Samuel in death realm if he is a prophet of God; shouldn’t he be in paradise or Elysium?”
From what we understand as those who serve YHWH, there are compartments of holding places and those that overseer the compartments.
Death & Hades are two overseers of which hold souls of people who have died. Also of which it has been said by those who have died and come back to say, “there was nothing but darkness,” according to Psalm 115:
“The dead do not praise the Lord, nor do any of those who descend into the silence of death.”
This is death – the silent slumber of the grave. All who are in death shall be judged at the resurrection, either to life, or the second death – the lake of fire.
There are also compartments of punishment for the things we do with our time here as human. In the Apocalypse of Paul we find that each human has an angel that watches over you, recording everything you say and do in your life and reporting this information to the creator of the universe so that you may be judged for your deeds.
“Therefore, when the sun has gone down, at the first hour of the night, in the same hour goes the angel of every person, of every man and woman, (which protect and keep them) because man is the image of God. Also, at the hour of morning, which is the twelfth hour of the night, all the angels of men and women go to meet God and present all the work which every man has done, whether good or evil. And every day and night do the angels present unto God the account of all the deeds of mankind. To you, therefore, I say, O children of men, bless the Lord God without ceasing all the days of your life.”
“Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you accursed, into the eternal fire that has been prepared for the devil and his angels.”
And these will depart into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life. Matt 25:41,46
According to Revelation there are three overseer:
- The Sea
These overseer give up their dead at the day of judgment:
“Then I saw a large white throne and the one who was seated on it; the earth and the heaven fled from his presence, and no place was found for them. And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne. Then books were opened, and another book was opened—the book of life. So the dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to their deeds” Revelation 20:11-13
Now the beast was seized, and along with him the false prophet who had performed the signs on his behalf—signs by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. Both of them were thrown alive into the lake of fire burning with sulfur. Revelation 19:20
And the devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet are too, and they will be tormented there day and night forever and ever. Revelation 20:10
If anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, that person was thrown into the lake of fire. Revelation 20:15
“When the Son of Man comes in his glory and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. All the nations will be assembled before him, and he will separate people one from another like a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. Then the king will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.” Matt 25:31-34
So how can you be saved from the death, hades, and the lake of fire?
And it shall come to pass in the last days, says YHWH,
That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh;
Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
Your young men shall see visions,
Your old men shall dream dreams.
And on My menservants and on My maidservants
I will pour out My Spirit in those days;
And they shall prophesy.
I will show wonders in heaven above
And signs in the earth beneath:
Blood and fire and vapor of smoke.
The sun shall be turned into darkness,
And the moon into blood,
Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord.
And it shall come to pass
That whoever calls on the name of the Lord
Shall be saved.
“Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a Man attested by God to you by miracles, wonders, and signs which God did through Him in your midst, as you yourselves also know Him, being delivered by the determined purpose and foreknowledge of God, you have taken by lawless hands, have crucified, and put to death; whom God raised up, having loosed the pains of death, because it was not possible that He should be held by it. For David says concerning Him:
‘I foresaw the Lord always before my face,
For He is at my right hand, that I may not be shaken.
Therefore my heart rejoiced, and my tongue was glad;
Moreover my flesh also will rest in hope.
For You will not leave my soul in Hades,
Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption.
You have made known to me the ways of life;
You will make me full of joy in Your presence.’
“Men and brethren, let me speak freely to you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his tomb is with us to this day. Therefore, being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him that of the fruit of his body, according to the flesh, He would raise up the Christ to sit on his throne, he, foreseeing this, spoke concerning the resurrection of Moshiach, that His soul was not left in Hades, nor did His flesh see corruption. This Jesus God has raised up, of which we are all witnesses. Therefore being exalted to the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, He poured out this which you now see and hear.
“For David did not ascend into the heavens, but he says himself:
‘The Lord said to my Lord,
“Sit at My right hand,
Till I make Your enemies Your footstool.” ’
“Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Adonai and Moshiach.”
Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Men and brethren, what shall we do?”
Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus HaMashiach for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as Eloheinu will call.”
“If you confess with your mouth that Yeshua is Lord and believe in your heart that YHWH raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9
“I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of YHWH so that you may know that you have eternal life.” John 5:13
If you ask Jesus to save you from death & hades, by repenting your sin – all the wrongs you know you have done – then Jesus will save you. When you die, you will not enter the slumber of death, or wait until judgment, but you will enter paradise. Even as Mashiach had said to the thief dying with Him,
“One of the criminals who was hanging there railed at him, saying, ‘Aren’t you the Christ? Save yourself and us!’ But the other rebuked him, saying, ‘Don’t you fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? And we rightly so, for we are getting what we deserve for what we did, but this man has done nothing wrong.’ Then he said, “Yeshua, remember me when you come in your kingdom.” And Yeshua said to him, ‘I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise.'” Luke 23:39-43
Jesus replied, “Your brother will come back to life again.” Martha said, “I know that he will come back to life again in the resurrection at the last day.” Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live even if he dies, and the one who lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?” She replied, “Yes, Lord, I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God who comes into the world.” John 11:23-27
This is how you can be saved from hades and death. For those who think this is nonsense – the choice is yours, die in your sin, or be relieved of your sin for all time.
Salvation of your soul occurs only through the karbanot redemption of Jesus the anointed of YHWH. This is proven by the spirit of YHWH to the person who asks for salvation directly from Yeshua. Ask out loud in your home, wherever you are, with a true heart for Yeshua to save your soul and He will do it!
Judaism cannot save you, following the commandments cannot save you, enlightenment and reincarnation cannot save you.
Salvation of mankind only comes through HaMashiach, the anointed of God, as prophesied throughout history. Jesus, or the incorrect spelling Yeshua, whom Judaism reject, is the only means by which any man or woman can enter to YHWH and YHWH himself seals the person who is born again through Jesus with His Holy Spirit!
For those who choose life congratulations! All you need to do now is ask for the anointed, HaMashiach Jesus, to send you the Holy Spirit and He will! This will be your proof of YHWH God and salvation to your mind, body, and soul. For this is the comforter given by God to all who come to him through Mashiach, Jesus our savior from death, hades, and the lake of fire.
All those who pretend to teach the commandments of YHWH and reject the anointed Mashiach Jesus of YHWH are lost souls who will never know what the spirit of God feels like. For only those who are born again through the Mashiach can receive the spirit of YHWH!
Blessed be YHWH name forever and ever and all glory to His salvation, Jesus the lamb and redemption for all mankind forever and ever amen.
