“YHWH has different rules for different children,” and “everybody gets to heaven”–REALLY???

Yesterday, someone calling himself "Heritage Beit Midrash" on Facebook, spent a lot of time arguing for the idea that YHWH supposedly has "different rules for different people" and that "everybody goes to Heaven" - which absolutely goes against Torah (see Exodus 12:49, Numbers 15:13-16, Romans 10:12, etc.).

Thing is, if God had different rules for different people, then the goyim /gentiles who accept YHWH/Yeshua/Torah can continue to basically just "believe in Jesus" and ignore the Seventh Day Sabbath and the Feasts,etc.

As a matter of fact, if goyim only had to follow the four rules outlined in Acts 15 that many have interpreted as being THE law for goyim, then goyim can apparently continue to commit adultery, murder, prostitution or whoremongering, remain alcoholics or drug addicts, and engage in homosexual activity, and whatever else YHWH considers to be "sin"....).

The idea that "EVERYBODY gets to heaven" is absolutely preposterous! If that were so, then WHY does YHWH keep harping on His people being holy/set apart? (Those who accept Him as their ELOHIM are "His people" too; we are ONE in Messiah! - Romans 12:5; Galatians 3:28.)

The things Heritage Beit Midrash claims make absolutely NO sense - and here's the Biblical proof:

Deuteronomy 29:9 Therefore, observe the words of this covenant and obey them; so that you can make everything you do prosper. 10 "Today you are standing, all of you, before Adonai your God - your heads, your tribes, your leaders and your officers - all the men of Isra'el, 11 along with your little ones, your wives and your foreigners here with you in your camp, from the one who chops your wood to the one who draws your water.

12 The purpose is that you should enter into the covenant of Adonai your God and into his oath which Adonai your God is making with you today, 13 so that he can establish you today for himself as a people, and so that for you he will be God - as he said to you and as he swore to your ancestors, to Avraham, Yitz'chak and Ya`akov. 14 "But I am not making this covenant and this oath only with you. 15 Rather, I am making it both with him who is standing here with us today before Adonai our God and also with him who is not here with us today.

16 For you know how we lived in the land of Egypt and how we came directly through the nations you passed through; 17 and you saw their detestable things and their idols of wood, stone, silver and gold that they had with them. 18 So let there not be among you a man, woman, family or tribe whose heart turns away today from ADONAI our God to go and serve the gods of those nations. Let there not be among you a root bearing such bitter poison and wormwood. (ESV)

QUESTION: WHO was standing before Him on Sinai? Not just the 12 tribes, but also the foreigners who had followed Moshe and the Israelites out of Egypt and had been absorbed into the tribes and told to do exactly as HIS people did! (Exodus 12:38, Numbers 15:13-16)

YHWH was making His oath not only with those standing before Him, but with all future generations of those who have accepted Him as their Elohim! (Remember, as believers in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, YOU are part of Israel - Halleluyah! He made this oath with YOU as well as those standing before Him at Sinai: Obey Him and all will go well with you; disobey and you will be cursed....)

Deuteronomy 29: 19 If there is such a person, when he hears the words of this curse, he will bless himself secretly, saying to himself, ‘I will be all right, even though I will stubbornly keep doing whatever I feel like doing; so that I, although “dry,” [sinful,] will be added to the “watered” [righteous].’ 20 But ADONAI will not forgive him. Rather, the anger and jealousy of ADONAI will blaze up against that person. Every curse written in this book will be upon him. ADONAI will blot out his name from under heaven. (ESV)

It couldn't be any clearer, and YHWH is not kidding around! Since we are in the “end times” as outlined in the Books of Daniel and Revelation, we need to be taking Him VERY seriously and stop beating each other up about what we THINK He said, or twist His Word into what we WISH He had said.

Ecclesiastes 12: 13 Here is the final conclusion, now that you have heard everything: fear God, and keep his mitzvot; this is what being human is all about. 14 For God will bring to judgment everything we do, including every secret, whether good or bad. [Here is the final conclusion, now that you have heard everything: fear God, and keep his mitzvot; this is what being human is all about.] (ESV)
