Chanówkh (Enoch) was shown Sh’ówl and Paradise as Páulus said in 2 Cor. 12:3-4

Chanowkh 22:1-15

Chapter 22
1 From there I proceeded to another spot, where I saw on the west a great and lofty mountain made of a strong Rock, (2) and there were there four deep pits,
2 Internally they were deep, capacious, and very smooth; and I said:
“How smooth these holes are, and how deep and dark they look!”
3 Then Rphâ’Ë´l the Watcher, and the Pure One who were with me, answered me saying:
“These cavities have been formed with the following purpose: that the spirits of the selves (néphesh) of the dead may be collected; and that here all the lives of the sons of ’Âthâ´m will be collected.
4 Thus these are the pits that will serve as their prison: (4) These are made for this, until the day of their great judgment,
5 At the appointed time, which shall be done to them on the Last Day.”
(5) And I saw the spirit of a son of ’Âthâ´m who was dead accusing; and his lament reached to heaven, while he was shouting and accusing.
6 Then I inquired of Rphâ’Ë´l, the Watcher, and the pure [envoy] who was with me, and said:
“Whose spirit is that, who accuses such that the voice of it reaches to heaven, shouting and accusing?”
7 He answered, saying:
“This is the spirit which came out of Hével who was slain by Qáyin his brother; and who will accuse that brother, until his seed be destroyed from the face of the earth;
8 Until his seed perish from the seed of the human race.”

Sh’ówl: separation according to population
9 (8) At that time therefore I inquired, observing all the pits, saying:
“Why are they separated from each other?”
(9) He answered:
These three separations have been made so that the selves (néphesh) of the dead may be separate, and thus has a [first] division been made for the selves (néphesh) of the righteous,
10 Which is by a chasm, living water, and by a light source.
11 (10) And in the same way likewise are sinners separated [in a second division] when they die, and are buried in the earth, when judgment does not overtake them during their lifetime.  [Prejudgment Christians]
12 (11) Here their selves (néphesh) shall be placed separate for this their abundant suffering, until the Day of the Great Judgment, and it is the castigation and the torment of those [who constantly curse], whose selves (néphesh) [are punished and bound there,] who deserve such retribution for their lives for the age.
13 (12) And thus has it been from the beginning of the world.  Thus has there been prepared a [third] separation for the selves (néphesh) of those who present their complaints, and of those who denounce their destruction, when they were slaughtered in the days of the sinners.
14 (13) Also a [fourth] receptacle of this sort has been formed for the selves (néphesh) of men who were not righteous, but sinners; for those who are transgressors, and accomplices of the transgression, whom they resemble.  Their selves (néphesh) shall not be annihilated in the Day of Judgment, neither shall they arise from this place.”  [Disclosure 20: 5]
(14) Then I blessed Yâ-hwéh ’Elohíym,
15 And said:

“Blessed be the righteous judgment and blessed be my Sovereign Yâ-hwéh, the Sovereign of Majesty and of justice, Who reigns over all the world.”

Sh’ówl  שְׁאוֹל("Sheol", "Seol") - Hell, or the Grave, or Paradise?

A page on what comes after death: Sh’ówl.  What is it, is the Christian view right or is the JW/SDA/"Sacred name" view scriptural?  Is any group scripturally correct? Where do our selves (néphesh) go when we die?  Is it to be our eternal resting place?

No denominational-correctness here

Here we present the scriptural truth, and we do not conform to any human tradition.  Amazingly, in this subject, there is no existent established religious group which presently believes all which scripture truly says about this subject, so we ask all you who read to keep your mind open to scripture and not to try to alter it to fit your group's dogma.  There are more scriptures to support this position, but the following should suffice the sincere Truth seeker.

Quick review of human traditional views:

Most Christians think they go to heaven (forever), and that hell (forever) is only for nonbelievers, though many of their denominations demand extra works for salvation and assign believers who lack those extra works to hell (forever).  Some Christians who realize the Kingdom comes here to earth think that selves (néphesh) just rot in the grave until the rapture takes them to heaven, and then they return at the 7th Trumpet.

SDA and JW’s and "Sacred Name" groups
think that the spirit goes to heaven and the self (néphesh) dies and rots in the grave and is nonexistent or dormant until the resurrection. They think Sh’ówl is merely "the grave". This is one of their favorite mistranslated scriptures to "support" it:

(not thinking, just waiting)
Psalms 146:4 His breath goeth forth,
he returneth to his earth; in that
very day his thoughts (PLANS)
perish. (KJV)

JW’s also think 144,000 of them go to a Mountain in heaven called Zion and that "Jesus" rules from there over people on an earth which will be called Paradise.  Many of them realize their organization believes "Jesus" will never set foot on earth again, that he comes in the air and goes back up, like the ultimate bungee-jumper.

Catholics think they go to an underground Purgatory and when they have paid for their sins, they go to heaven.  Everyone else goes to hell (forever) to them.  Since heaven is forever for them and hell is also forever for others, depending on their good works outweighing their bad, the earth is left forever in the hands of their representative for the Son on earth, their Pontiff.  

Why does this confusion exist? Isn't scripture clear about Sh’ówl?

Again, as usual, the blame rests on the terrible translations of scripture made by mercenary scribes to accomodate the errors in their false doctrines.

Indeed, its a total free-for-all in the KJV - Hell is Strongs #7585 Sh’ówl in the "Old Testament" pre-advent scriptures, yes, but in the "New Testament" post-advent scriptures, hell can be Strongs #1067 (the valley of Hinnom), #86 ("hades" [Sh’ówl]), or #5020 (abyss). For that matter, Strongs#7585 Sh’ówl is translated there as "grave" (31x), hell (31x), or pit (3x), and Strongs #86 hades [shówl] is translated there as hell (10x) and grave (1x). This is the reason for the mass confusion in Christianity, because it has been translated to favor their traditions of it being a place for punishment. For instance, when Ya`aqóv said he would die and go to Sh’ówl, KJV translators couldn't handle Ya`aqóv saying he was going to hell! They changed that to "grave"! So JWs picked up on this to say ALL references to Sh’ówl refer to the grave, since they don't have the Chanówkh resource to make it clear WHAT Sh’ówl is.

The "light at the end of the tunnel"

There is another religious teaching found among several heathen religions which is the worst of all, and related to the Christian deception of "going to heaven". This is the teaching that dead selves (néphesh) go to the greater luminary orb, commonly miscalled "the sun". We include this here to point out the reason why the luminary orb is commonly called "sol" even in English terms such as "solar". Because apparently the envoy of that star wanted humans to believe that it is Sh’ówl, and this term evolved to "sol". For more details, see the FAQ link regarding near-death experiences.

Is Sh’ówl the Lake of fire?

No, though the confusion is great, thankfully the establishment scriptures are clear enough to distinguish the Lake of fire to be the Second Death per Disclosure ("Revelation") 20:14, a place where the next two occupants will be the Image of the Beast and his Preacher of the Lie ("False Prophet") per Disclosure ("Revelation") 19:20, and which at the end of the 1,000 year Rest, at the Great White Throne of Judgment, is where the Adversary and his hosts are thrown, as well as everyone who was not written in the book of Life. But what exactly is the Lake of fire? A better description of this Lake of fire is found in Chanówkh 18:12-16,19, and 21, which say it is a "prison for the envoys".

The Lake of fire is total separation from the Father.

To comprehend this, one must first understand what the Father is. The Father is the Power of Yâ-hwéh. The Fire of Yâ-hwéh is a consuming Fire, which was reported to consume even stones (1 Kings 18:38). Such fire is not oxidative fire, it is nuclear fire. And as we know that all things consist in Him (Qowloçíym "Colossians" 1: 17), we understand that it is His Power which binds together the nuclei of every atom, so it is His Fire which is released when the nucleus is split. And we know His Power is Goodness, Love, Light, and Life, but where there is none, there is nuclear fire produced because there is not enough Goodness to keep it 'consisting'. Thus, the deprivation of Life means the second Death. Yet, in pure immortal envoys, they have their own eternal life powers, lights, which can sustain their consistence, but in fallen envoys, their wickedness removed that, so if Yâ-hwéh should also remove His Power from their atoms, they would literally become a lake of fire. Please remember that only one Human being ever had the Father forsake Him totally, and that was Yâhuwshúa`, while He was being hung on the gallows-cross (Songs 22:1, MattithYâhuw 27:46, Márquwç 15:34). But His flesh never saw corruption, He was sinless, and though Human, He successfully consisted even while totally abandoned by His Father, so He overcame a medical death by His Goodness to resurrect. When we complete our spiritual growth over 1,000 years free from evil spirits' interference in the Kingdom of Yâ-hwéh Yâhuwshúa`, we will be given our own Power (eternal lives) which currently are found within His Power (Qowloçíym "Colossians" 3:3), and we will be mighty Ones like He is, immortal, having no corruption. It is by His wisdom that we were not given this eternal lives and created fully fledged, so we would not be corrupted irreparably by the deceiver, the Adversary. And note that once we are fully fledged and immortal, the Adversary's usefulness ends, so he with his evil lack of integrity will finally be thrown out to try to consist alone in the lake of fire. But where is it? In the direction of the constellation of Orion, a "star", or fireball, is reported to be heading towards earth. This is viewed from a long shaft built into the Great Pyramid, and is calculated to reach us around "AD 3000" Roman dates. Could this be the Lake of Fire?

What does scripture say?
To summarize what scripture says about heaven and Sh’ówl:

For those who doubt this is so, scripture does not contradict itself, but traditions do contradict scripture.

Sh’ówl is an underground collecting place for dead human selves (néphesh) which is divided into different parts, for the particular type of occupant.  All human dead selves (néphesh) go there, from the best to the worst, yet it does not merely contain “hell” it also contains Paradise (the Garden of `Ë´then). Read the scripture quote in the Left hand margin, and see that this is confirmed by Avrâhâ´m in verse 26 of Luwqá 16:19-31. Not all human selves (néphesh) stay there, those who have NOT made a decision about the true Glad Tidings of the Kingdom of Yâ-hwéh can return to assume another identity, until they reach a lifetime in which they DO make an informed decision about it.

Heaven is a place where Yâ-hwéh and His envoys inhabit, and it has only 1 human presently within it: Yâhuwshúa`, Who is at the right-hand-side of His Power. Yâhuwchânâ´n visited it when he ascended in the spirit (Disclosure 4:1-2), Chanówkh (Enoch), who is the one Paulus spoke about in 2 Cor 12:3-4, he was transferred to the heaven of the heavens in the spirit (Chanowkh 70:1) and was given a tour of Sh’ówl also, though when he left mankind alive, he was taken up physically by a horses and chariots of fire (Yâshâ´r 3:36), and 'EliyYâhuw was similarly taken up by chariots of fire into the heavens, but he was transported much like a plane to Paradise - the Garden of `Ë´then, according to scripture, where he and Chanówkh are being kept alive in the body for his future task as one of the two witnesses. He was put in charge of documenting in a scroll all the murderous excesses committed by the foolish pastors which are currently in charge of the flock, who will reascend to heaven then return in full view of everyone prior to the coming of Yâhuwshúa`, and soon thereafter Chanówkh (Enoch) will return also to earth. Note: There are some well-meaning brothers, usually near-miss namers, who deny any of these other humans actually went to heaven trying to twist what's left in the establishment's scriptures to say Yâhuwshúa` is the only One Who ever went to heaven basing themselves on what He told Nikodemos. If this is you, please read this retranslation of the verse you are misunderstanding:

And no one has gone up into the One of the heavens except He Who came down out of the One of the heavens: the Son of 'Âthâ´m, the One being within the One of the heavens. [Chanówkh chapters 46-50]

[Yâhuwchânân's Glad Tidings 3:13]


For those who still doubt this, compare this translation with the Greek.

What happens to a believer who dies?


A believer is made up of three parts: a spirit, on loan from the Father, a physical body which is made of dust, and a néphesh (motivation, self, life) which though it may die (lose its body), continues to exist and live without a body.

When a believer dies,

1. the spirit returns to heaven to the Father who loaned it to him, but this does not contain our identity, it is our breath.

2. the body without a spirit is lifeless, and proceeds to decay (except Yâhuwshúa`'s body, since He had accomplished the Law, and had no corruption).

3. the self (néphesh), which contains the person's identity, is gathered to his fathers, to Sh’ówl to the part of it which corresponds to his kind.  There it may be comforted, it may sleep, and it may speak. A believer in the true glad tidings will go to the Paradise part, since the year 4000 (Roman date AD 27), when Yâhuwshúa` delivered the captivity. There it awaits to be reinvested with a new spiritual body and thus to resurrect.

Some examples of believers who died, did die, and are to die:

Shmuw’Ë´l (“Samuel”)

Shmuw’Ë´l (“Samuel”) died yet he was allowed by Yâ-hwéh to yet speak to King Shâ’úwl (“Saul”) to tell him what would happen to him and his sons in the hands of the Philistines because he had disobeyed Yâ-hwéh.  Note that he did not descend from heaven, nor did he climb out of his grave:

And the woman asked,

"Whom shall I bring up for you?"

and He said:

"Bring up Shmuw’Ë´l for me!"

But the woman saw Shmuw’Ë´l, so she cried out with a loud voice!  And the woman said to Sha'uwl, saying:

"Why have you deceived me?  For you are Sha'uwl!"

And the king said to her:

"Do not fear, because what do you see?"

and the woman said to Sha'uwl:

"I see mighty ones who are coming up from the ground!"

[1 Samuel 28:11-13]

Some allege that she was seeing her familiar spirit and not Shmuw’Ë´l.  Besides contradicting scripture which says it WAS Shmuw’Ë´l, she would not have cried out had she seen merely the familiar spirit she knew.  Moreover, Shmuw’Ë´l certainly predicted truth to him and this by the name of Yâ-hwéh, something no evil spirit would do.  Now this also does not mean he was in hell!  Had Shmuw’Ë´l been in hell (the hotter lowest places of Sh’ówl), he would have been GLAD to exit it, instead of disturbed.

The entire Convocation (except 144,000 and their houses)

(Note: convocation is the translation of greek ekklesia or hebrew miqra`. "Church" is a pagan term derived from Kirkhe, daughter of Zeus.)

The convocation of Yâhuwshúa` is obviously more than just the 144,000 surviving remnant.  There are many dead believers, and we mustn't exclude the flock of the slaughter who are exterminated in the Judgment at the 6th seal because they denied His name.  None of these or even dead name-believers go to heaven, since then why would He need to return? So where do they go?

The entire convocation which numbers as the sands of the sea(spiritual adulterous Israel) except for the remnant (spiritual Virgin of Israel) goes to Sh’ówl!

They, they made Me jealous by what is not a Mighty One, who angered Me with their worthless worshipped images; so I, I will make them jealous by what is not a people, by uncomprehending heathen masses I will anger them!
Because a Fire has been kindled in My wrath and it burns all the way to Sh’ówl below, and it will consume the earth and her harvest, and it shall set the foundations of the mountains on fire!

[Deut.  32: 21-22]

...I will build My convocation, and the gates of Sh’ówl will not prevail against it!

[MattithYâhuw 16:18]

...but they do not consider the actions of Yâ-hwéh, and they do not look at the work of His hands,
Therefore My people [Christians] are removed into exile, for lack of recognition of Yâ-hwéh, so their honor is dying of starvation and their multitude is parched with thirst; Therefore Sh’ówl enlarges herself and gapes her mouth limitlessly, and into her shall descend their prominent ones, and their multitude and their tumult, and the revelers.

[Yshá`Yâhuw 5:13-14]

Yâhuwshúa` went to Sh’ówl

The Sign of the Son of 'Âthâ ´m for the evil and adulterous generation:

Then responded some of the scribes and Pharushíym, saying:

“Instructor, we wish to see a sign from You!”

But He responding, said to them:

“An evil and adulterous stock seeks for a sign, yet a sign shall not be given to it except the sign of Yownâ´h the predicator.

For just as Yownâ´h was within the belly of the huge gaping fish three days and three nights, thus shall the Son of 'Âthâ´m be within the heart of the earth three days and three nights.

[MattithYâ´huw 12:38-40]

Is the GRAVE the "heart of the earth"?  They aren't dug that deeply!  The simple scriptural truth is that Sh’ówl is not, and never means "GRAVE".  See in the next passages that Yâhuwshúa`'s Self was in the heart of the earth, in Sh’ówl, though His body rested securely in the tomb and His flesh did not see decay. The scripture which best describes this is the Glad Tidings of Nikódemos part II, from chapter 17 to the end, and this scripture is also found in our scripture download.

King Dâwíth is still in Sh’ówl, not in heaven, even after Yâhuwshúa`'s resurrection!

For Dâwíth says for Him:

I have set Yâ-hwéh always before Me because at My right hand, I will not be shaken:

Therefore My heart is glad and My Honor rejoices - My body will also rest securely:
Because You will not abandon My Self to Sh’ówl, You will not concede Your Kind One to see decay:

You will make the Way of Life known to Me, the completion of happiness, Your Face, and pleasures eternally at Your right hand:

[Songs 16: 8-11]

Men, our brothers, it is lawful to speak with outspokenness to you about the chief father Dâwíth, that he both died and was buried, and his tomb is among us unto this day.

These things being so, he came to be a foreteller, and understanding that Yâ-hwéh swore to him with an oath:

"One from the fruit of your loins [the Anointed One (Songs 132:10)], I shall set upon your throne, "

[Songs 132:11]

And foreseeing, he did speak about the resurrection of the Anointed: that His Self was not left down in Sh’ówl, neither did His flesh see decay [v.27];

This One is Yâhuwshúa`, Who the Mighty One raised up, of which we are witnesses.

Also this One is Who has been elevated to the right hand of the Mighty One, [v.28] and received the promise of the Spirit of the Pure One from the Father, so He has poured this gift out, which ye now see and hear.

For Dâwíth is not ascended into the heavens, but himself says:

“An oracle of Yâ-hwéh is for my Foundation (’Athníy):

Sit at My right hand, until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet!’” [Songs 110: 1]

[Acts 2:25-35]

This passage says Yâhuwshúa` went to Sh’ówl, and if He went to Paradise with the thief, then also Paradise is within Sh’ówl.  Besides this, this passage serves to also debunk the Christian pagan myth that their selves (néphesh) go to heaven, or even that Yâhuwshúa` took believers' selves (néphesh) to heaven when He resurrected because Acts happened after Yâhuwshúa`'s resurrection!  That false doctrine is a misinterpretation of Ephesians 4:8 where it quotes Songs 68:16-18, where "the height" refers to Mount Tsiyyówn (Zion), not heaven:

Why do you rugged mountains gaze in envy at the mountain the Mighty Ones chooses for Himself to sit, indeed where Yâ-hwéh shall lodge forever?  The chariots of the Mighty Ones are multitudes of thousands of tens of thousands - the Sovereign of Çiynáy is in the pure place!  You having ascended to the height, You captured captivity, and received gifts in humans, even also to abide in rebellious ones, Yâ´hu the Mighty Ones.

[Songs 68: 16-18]

Yâhuwshúa` did not sleep in Sh’ówl either, and was among other dead people. This certainly doesn't happen in a grave!  In this passage, Sh’ówl is called a prison:

Because the Anointed One also once did suffer concerning sins, the Just for the unjust, in order that He might bring us to the Mighty One, having been put to death indeed in flesh, but made alive in Spirit,

In which, He proclaimed it also having gone to those spirits in prison [4:6](Sh’ówl),

Who formerly were rebelliously unpersuadable, when once, in the days of Nóach, the longsuffering of Yâ-hwéh accepted the box (ark) being prepared, on the hope of their repentance, inside which those few (that is, eight lives), were preserved intact through the waters,

[1 Këph (1 Peter) 3:18-20]

This is confirmed also in chapter 4 of the same scripture:

Those are who shall render an account to Yâ-hwéh, Who is prepared to judge the living and the dead.

For unto this purpose were the glad tidings announced, even to the dead, in order that they might indeed be judged as humans in the flesh, but might live as Yâ-hwéh in the spirit.

[1 Këph (1 Peter) 4:5-6]

If all the dead are asleep, and cannot think at all, what good would announcing the glad tidings be to them, even by Yâhuwshúa`?  Many SDA (Seventh Day Adventists), JW (Jehovah's Witnesses) and their "sacred name" spinoffs think this error because the following verse is poorly translated in the KJV, where plans is rendered "thoughts":

3 Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.
4 His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.

Here I quote from the NIV to avoid being accused of mistranslation of that word.

Do not put your trust in princes, in mortal men, who cannot save.  When their spirit departs, they return to the ground; on that very day their plans come to nothing. (NIV)

[Psalms 146:3-4 NIV]

The thief on the cross and Yâhuwshúa` Himself

One of the two thieves on the crosses beside Yâhuwshúa` believed and called on His name to remember him when He entered in His Kingdom.  Where did Yâhuwshúa` say he would go that day?

Yet one of the criminals who had been hanged, reviled Him, saying:

“If You are the Anointed One, save Yourself and save us also!”

But the other one, responding, rebuked him, saying to him:

“Might you not even fear the Mighty Ones, because you are within the same condemnation?

But we, indeed fairly so, for we receive in full a due recompense of what we committed; but this One has not committed even one thing out of place!”

And he said to Yâhuwshúa`:

“Remember me, Yâ-hwéh, when You might come into Your Kingdom.”

And Yâhuwshúa` said to him:

’Âmë´n (certainly) I say to you, that today you shall be with Me within Pardë´ç (the Garden of `Ë´then) [YchezqË´’l 31: 16, 18]

[Luwqá 23:39-43]

JW's and SDA’s and "sacred name" groups allege He did not say "today he will be with Me in Paradise", rather that "I say to you today: you shall be with me in Paradise."  This implies Paradise does not exist yet, and that it is a name for the Kingdom.  Not so!  Paradise is NEVER used in scripture to speak of the Kingdom nor the New Heaven and New Earth!
Moreover, in The Glad Tidings of Nikodemos, in the 26th chapter, we see the thief who was on the cross in Paradise (the Garden of `Ë´then) being met there by the 'Âthâ´m and the righteous being brought there by our Savior Yâhuwshúa`. This is the thief's testimony about what He said on the gallows-cross next to Him, and what happened:

"Ye have rightly spoken: for I was a robber, doing all manner of evil upon the earth. And the "Yehuwthím hanged me with Yâhuwshúa`, and I beheld the wonders in the creation which came to pass through the gallows-cross of my companion Yâhuwshúa` when He was hanged, and I believed that He was the Maker of all creatures and the almighty King, and I besought Him, saying:

'Remember me, Yâ-hwéh, when You come into Your kingdom.'

And forthwith He accepted my prayer, and said unto me:

'Âmë´n (certainly) I say unto you, this day shall you be with Me in Pardë´ç

And He gave me the sign of the gallows-cross, saying:

Bear this and go unto Pardë´ç, and if the envoy that keeps Pardë´ç does not permit you to enter in, show him the sign of the gallows-cross; and you shall say unto him:

It is Yâhuwshúa` the Anointed the Son of the Power Who now has been hanged, Who has sent me to you.

And when I had so done, I spoke all these things unto the envoy that keeps Pardë´ç; and when he heard this of me, forthwith he opened the door and brought me in and set me at the right hand of Pardë´ç, saying:

'Look now, wait a little while, and 'Âthâ´m the father of all mankind will enter in with all his sons that are the pure and the righteous, after the triumph and honor of the ascending up of the Anointed One, Yâ-hwéh that is hanged.'

Note that this ascension mentioned is not His ascension from the Mount of Olives into heaven, but His ascension from the pit of Sh’ówl to Pardë´ç, and this is also the ascension mentioned in Epheçíym (Ephesians)4:8-9 quoting Songs 68:16-18.

So what is Pardë ´ç (Paradise)?


It is a Hebrew word, Strong's #6508.  It is commonly transliterated into English and Greek as "Paradise". All the trouble about the ignorance about what it is could have been avoided had they translated it instead of transliterated it. Here is the translation:

06508. פַּרְדֵּס Pardë´ç par-dace’; of foreign origin; a park:—forest, orchard. Greek 3857.

The Greek entry 3857 says that it specifically refers to `Ë´then, the garden of the Mighty Ones which ’Âthâ´m was exiled from.  Moreover, the Old Syriac Aramaic text of Luwqá' 22:43 says "the garden of `Ë´then" and not Paradise!   Where is this? Ezekiel 31: 16 and 31:18 say this clue to this question:

At the sound of his fall, I made the heathen masses tremble, when I bring him down to Sh’ówl with the ones descending to the pit, then all of the trees of `Ë´then, the choicest and the best of Lebanon, all which drink the waters in the parts of the Earth below were consoled.

With whom can you be compared in splendor and in majesty among the trees of`Ë´then?  Yet you will be brought down with the trees of`Ë´then to the parts of the earth below, you will lie among the uncircumcised ones, with the ones killed by the sword.

`Ë´then? in Sh’ówl?  Yes.  But it will be made accessible to us during the 1,000 year Reign before the New Heavens and the New Earth.

He who has an ear, let him heed what the Spirit says to the convocations.  To him that overcomes [1 Yâhuwchânâ´n 2: 14, 5: 5], I will grant to him to eat of the Tree of Life, which is in the midst of the Pardë´ç [Orchard-Park (`Ë´then)] of Yâ-hwéh.

[Disclosure (Revelation) 2:7]

And he showed me a pure river of living water, also radiant as crystal, flowing out from the throne of the Mighty Being and the Lamb,

Within the midst of its street, on this side and on that side of the river, a tree of life producing twelve types of fruit, yielding one type of its fruit every month, and the leaves of the tree are for therapy of the masses!

[Disclosure (Revelation) 22:1-2]

How do you think the Tree of Life will be made accessible?
Here it says how, but note that according to various references in scripture, some of which are here, the Garden is apparently located in the area of Yruwshâláim underground. Might that be a reason why Yâhuwshúa` frequently taught His pupils upon the Mount of Olives?

And Yâ-hwéh will go out and He will fight against the those heathen masses as in the Day of His fight on the Day of battle; and His feet will stand on that Day on the Mount of Olives that is at the east face of Yruwshâláim, and the Mount of Olives will be split in two from east to west into a very great valley, and He will move half of the mountain to the north and half of it to the south.

[ZkharYâ´huw 14:3-4]

Is there anyone underground in Paradise now?  Are they asleep?
Note that during the times before the coming of Yâhuwshúa`, dead believers went to Sh’ówl, no exceptions, even Ya`aqov lamented that his grief for Yowçë´ph would take him to Sh’ówl (Genesis 37:35). But in the first scroll of the Great Scroll in the Temple, the First Scroll of 'Âthâ´m and Chauwâ´h (found on this site and the download) is found Yâ-hwéh's promise that He would deliver him back into the Garden after Four Great Days (in the year 4000 since creation). This was accomplished by Him after His crucifixion on the gallows-cross, which explains why this is not mentioned much in the Masoretic Text (preadvent scriptures) today - it was erased by those who wished to erase the memory of Yâhuwshúa`, who proved them wrong. But we DO see the ancient Christian tradition of saying they die and go to Paradise. At this point we should make clear that this is not "the blessed hope" nor the glad tidings, just the holding place for the righteous dead, because our hope is to enter the Kingdom reborn in revested spiritual incorruptible bodies and be no more subject to death, but to live endless life with Him living among us also.
Examine these verses which the establishment chose to not put in our canon, probably because it went against their "going to heaven" false glad tidings.

8 When Chanówkh had ended his commandments to them, Yâ-hwéh transported him from that mountain to the land of life, to the mansions of the righteous and of the chosen, the abode of Paradise of joy, in light that reaches up to heaven; light that is outside the light of this world; for it is the Light of Yâ-hwéh, that fills the entire world, but which no place can contain.

9 Thus, because Chanówkh was in the Light of Yâ-hwéh, he found himself out of the reach of death until Yâ-hwéh would have him die.

[Second 'Âthâ´m and Chauwâ´h 22:8-9]

Fifth Seal: Dead believers in Pardë´ç cry out

And when He opened the fifth seal, I saw down under the altar the selves of those having been slain for the sake of the Word of Yâ-hwéh, and due to the testimony of Yâhuwshúa` which they held;

And they were screaming with a loud voice, saying,

“Until when, Yâ-hwéh, the Pure One, and the True One, do You not judge and require our blood from those who dwell upon the earth?”

[Disclosure (Revelation) 6:9-10]

Can the sleeping scream coherently?

Going to heaven: the false gospel [Glad Tidings]!

Not even the disciples went to heaven, look:

Little children: I am with you yet a little while.  Ye will seek Me, yet I also say to you now, as I said to the “Yehuwthím”,

“Where I go, ye are not able to come”.

[Yâhuwchânân's Glad Tidings 13:33]

Yâhuwshúa` did not say they would ascend later either.  But examine this verse, which says He will be with them later when He returns:

Shim`ówn Këph says to Him:

“O my Sovereign, where do You go?”

Yâhuwshúa` responded to him:

Where I go [heaven], you are not able to accompany Me now, but eventually you shall accompany Me. :

[Yâhuwchânân's Glad Tidings 13:36]

This understanding is explained clearly in these verses, except it remains veiled to those who do not want to believe:

...I go to prepare a place for you [New Yruwshalaim];

And if I go and prepare for you a place, I am coming again and will associate with you to Myself, in order that wherever I am at, ye also may be.

And ye understand where I go [to the Father], and ye discern The Way.

[Yâhuwchânân's Glad Tidings 14:2-4]

Why don't we go to heaven?

But the justification from believing speaks thus:  You may not say in your heart,

“Who shall be ascended to the heavens?”

-That is to moor down the Deliverer there!

[Romans 10:6]

The true account of ’El`âzâ´r and the rich man was no parable

And it is overused by Christians against JW's, SDA's, and "Sacred name" groups, and they don't even realize that ’Avrâhâ´m was also in Sh’ówl when they use it!

’El`âzâ´r and the Rich man

¶ And there was a certain rich man, and he was clothed in purple and buwts [`Ivríyth: white linen], celebrating daily in splendor.

And there was a certain beggar named 'El`âzâ´r, who lay strewed before his doorway, being full of ulcers,

And he was desiring to be filled from the crumbs that fell from the table of the rich man, instead, even the dogs, coming, licked clean his ulcers.

And it came to pass, the beggar died, and he was carried off by the envoys into the lap of 'Avrâhâ´m (in Sh’ówl) [Compare Yownâ´h 2: 2].  And the rich one died also, and was buried.

Then having raised up his eyes within Sh’ówl, coming to be in the bottom, he sees 'Avrâhâ´m afar off, and 'El`âzâ´r within his lap.

And he, calling out, said:

Father 'Avrâhâ´m, be compassionate to me, and send 'El`âzâ´r, in order that he might dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, because I am in intense pain within this blaze.

But 'Avrâhâ´m said:

My son, recollect that you received in full your good things during your lifetime, and 'El`âzâ´r similarly the bad things; but now look, he is consoled, but you are in intense pain.

And on top of all these things, a great chasm has been set fast between us and you, such that those who wish to cross from here towards you are unable, nor those from there can cross towards us.

And he said to him:

Then I beg you, my father, that you might send him unto the house of my father,

For I have five brothers, so that he might earnestly testify to them in order that they may not also come unto this place at the bottom!

'Avrâhâ´m says to him:

They have the scrolls of Moshéh and the Predicators: let them heed them.

But he said:

No, father 'Avrâhâ´m, rather, if one from the dead might traverse towards them, they will repent!

And he said to him:

If they do not heed Moshéh and the Predicators, they will not be persuaded even if One might rise from the dead.

[Luwqá' 16:19-31]

This passage on 'El`azar and the rich man is never said to be merely a parable.  Moreover, in no parable does He give specific names for people, as He does in this historical account.  Furthermore, there is no allegorical parallel which this account might apply to.

Most JW's, SDA's, and "sacred name" groups work hard to deny all these scriptures.  Christians also work very hard to deny these scriptures and promote their rapture to heaven illusion, because they do not want to face their judgment. No one should deny scripture, everyone should accept it!  

Some try to allege it isn't even part of the original scripture.  Even if it weren't, other scriptures make this clear.  However, it is found in the Aramaic texts.  Others then say that when the rich man "lifted up his eyes" it refers to him resurrecting.  The first resurrection hasn't happened yet, if such were the case, his five brothers must be extremely old by now, since they hadn't died!

Yâhuwshúa` is the One who rose from the dead who the hardened yet do not believe in.

This describes Sh’ówl as being a place with more than one area, yet within sight of each other.  It does not mention that ’Avrâhâ´m also is in Sh’ówl, but that is where Ya`aqov said he was going [Genesis 37:35], and it is certainly not the same area as the rich man.  But it was not Paradise because this happened before Yâhuwshúa` delivered them there.

There is another maddening scripture for them:

Here Satan-Heylel (Lucifer) is defrocked of his power and is killed physically and cast into Sh’ówl [between Chapters 19 and 20 of Revelation].  This is tantamount to throwing the snitching and entrapping prosecuting attorney into prison, without any segregation!  Predictably, he is beaten to a pulp and cast out even from his grave!   Yâ-hwéh still has a purpose for him, though, and chains him 1,000 years and puts him in special housing where he is protected from such prison justice.  Does this passage sound like the dead are asleep?  Or that Sh’ówl is merely a grave?  Not to anyone reasonable.

Then you will lift up this poem against the king of Confusion (Bâvél) , and in that day you will say: "O how the exactor of tributes has ceased, and the slavedriver has desisted!  Yâ-hwéh has broken the staff of the wicked ones - the scepter of the rulers!  Which beat the peoples in excessive rage, beating relentlessly!  Which dominated the heathen masses by ruthless persecution!  The entire earth is at rest, it is quiet, they burst out in song, even the evergreens rejoice over you, the cedars of Lvânówn [trees spiritually symbolize military], "Ever since you were laid down, our hewers haven't come up!"  Sh’ówl from beneath is excited for you, to meet you at your coming, the deceased are rousing for you, all of the chiefs of the earth, it makes all of the kings of the heathen masses rise from their thrones!  All of them, they will respond and they will say to you: "Have you also become weak like us?  You have become similar to us! "  Sh’ówl has brought down your exaltation, the sound of your stringed instruments: the maggots make a bed beneath you, and your covering is the scarlet worm.  How you have fallen from the heavens, Heylël (Daystar [luminary orb]), son of the dawn!  You who prostrated the heathen masses were cut down to the earth!  And you, who said in your heart:  I shall ascend [verb used - Allah] the heavens, even over the stars of the Mighty One shall I raise my throne, and I shall sit on the appointed mount on the recesses of the north [Mt. Zion - Ps. 48:2]  I shall ascend [verb used - Allah] over the heights of the thundercloud; I shall make myself like the Most High! "  But you shall be brought down to Sh’ówl, to the recesses of the pit! Your onlookers stare at you, they attentively study you, "Is this the man who was caused the earth to tremble? Who caused kingdoms to quake? Who transformed the world into an uninhabited land, who tore down his cities and whose captives he would not let go home?"  All of the kings of the heathen masses, all of them lie in honor, each one in his tomb; but you, you are thrown out of your tomb like a detested branch, for the shame of the slain, from those pierced of the sword that descended the stones of the pit, like a trampled corpse.  You shall not be joined with them in burial because you corrupted your land, you murdered your people!  The seed of the wicked shall not be called forever...

[Yshá`Yâhuw (Isaiah) 14:4-20]

It is interesting to note who seeks to ascend to heaven and take over.  It is also interesting to note that  Allah's Dome of the Rock is on Mt. Zion.  Allah means "he ascends" in Hebrew (but if you spell it differently, it means "Curse")

Gëy-Hinnóm, and dying again

The fire of the Valley of Hinnom is the event of Disclosure ("Revelation") 20: 9, when fire from the mighty One comes down out of the skies and utterly consumes the deceived freshly resurrected wicked ones who are misled by Satan to surround the encampment of the pure ones and the beloved city. Some people manage to grasp this, but there are two facts which are usually lost on most Christians who read this:

Fact 1) This death of resurrected ones is not the "second death", although it is a second time, is a repeat of the first death.

Fact 2) The resurrected bodies whose flesh is incorruptible is still mortal and can die again, as you see, because those newly resurrected wicked ones will have the same flesh we will have at that point. Note that scripture confirms in Yshá`Yâhuw 65: 20 that a person can die in the Kingdom, even in this new body. According to this verse, and verses in Disclosure ("Revelation") one who doesn’t take the Tree of Life, and sins, incurs the curse of its penalty, death. This means the new flesh is NOT immortal yet. It is AFTER the 7th Day millenial Kingdom, when we enter into the New Heavens and New Earth that we will receive our eternal life.

Now, how can these two facts be? The second death is defined as the Lake of Fire, per Disclosure ("Revelation") 20:14, and this event of Gey-Hinnom isn't that. It is the fulfillment of what Yâhuwshúa` said in MattithYâ´huw 10: 28 -

"And ye should not fear because of those who kill the body, but are not able to kill the self.  But ye should fear more Him Who is able to destroy both self and body in Gëy-Hinnóm"

This scripture proves that a person can die again, because the resurrected wicked can die! Why else would Yâhuwshúa` tell the Pharushiym living at THAT time,

"Serpents, offspring of vipers, how shall ye escape from the judgment of Gëy-Hinnóm?" - MattithYâ´huw 23:33).

Those Pharushiym were rejecting His Glad Tidings of His Kingdom, and were going to stay down in Sh'owl during the Day of Wrath, resurrect, and follow Satan, to be judged at Gëy-Hinnóm and die again! And dying again disproves the establishment's mistranslation of Hebrews 9:27 which they use to dispute that idea, because in reality that verse says this:

"And, in how it is apportioned for the sons of ’Âthâ´m to die once, but this after a decision,"

This verse means that a human could die several times before making a decision about the true Glad Tidings of the Kingdom, but once they make a decision, they do not 'recycle' anymore. So now this is why in this age, people also have observed that many people remember bits of their past lives, because for centuries, there has been a drought of the Word, as scripture says in Amos. But note: we do not say a human can return as an animal, because animals come from the earth and return there, but a human has two origins, the earth and the heavens. But during the millenial Kingdom, there is a prediction that dead humans and animals will be recycled into the believing houses of Yisrâ’Ë´l and Yâhuwthâ´h.

Look, days are coming,” declares Yâ-hwéh, “when I shall sow the house of Yisrâ’Ë´l and the house of Yâhuwthâ´h the seed of ’Âthâ´m and the seed of beast;” - YirmYâ´huw 31:27

What is the purpose of human beings recycling? Apparently to give them another opportunity to hear the true Glad Tidings of the Kingdom in order to make a decision!

Song ("Psalms") 9:17. The errant ones are returning [repeatedly] to Sh'ówl, all of the heathen masses, the ones who forgot the mighty Ones,
18. because it is not for perpetuity a needy one shall be forgotten, the expectation of the poor [Tâ'ówm 3, 29] is lost for a testimony. [`Ivríym 9: 27]

Now, some of you may balk at this, fearing to accept this teaching which resembles the panzootic reincarnation doctrine central to several pagan religions e.g. Buddhism and Hinduism. To those, I say, note that a self (néphesh) may recycle, suffering in lives (which they call samsara) until the life in which they find the Truth, and they make a decision about it, making Shalowm or not and break the cycle (which they call moksa or nirvana). Look at this Hindu prayer and see how they seek and desire Yâ-hwéh's Glad Tidings:

"From the unreal, lead us to the real; From the darkness, lead us to the Light; From death, lead us to immortality;"

So why don't we preach recycling? Because we preach how to STOP recycling, we preach the Glad Tidings of the Kingdom of Yâ-hwéh Yâhuwshúa` and the Testimony for our deliverance.

Yet there is another darker reason Yâ-hwéh is permitting people to recycle, mentioned in Song ("Psalms") 21:

8. Your Hand will find out all of Your enemies, Your right Hand, it will detect the ones hating You.
9. You shall make them become like a furnace of fire at the time of Your Face, Yâ-hwéh! [Yshá`Yâhuw 9: 18] It will engulf them in Its anger and Fire will consume them. [Yâhuw'Ë´l 2: 2-5]
10. Their fruit from the earth You shall eliminate and their seed from the sons of 'Âthâ´m
11. because they spread out evil against You, they devised a plot [Philipposíym 1: 16] which they could not accomplish;
12. consequently You regularly put them back among Your remaining ones, You will prepare (against) their face.

This refers to the ongoing unfinished Transition of His name into the Creature substitute for the Transgression (read Glad Tidings of Phílippos 68-69). This Transgression has not yet been accomplished, and this verse says that Yâ-hwéh has been recycling those who hate Him who work on substituting Him until they accomplish their Transgression of making the Impostor Substitute.

One scripturally documented example of these recycled creators of the Transition, seen when they HAVE accomplished their Transgression, is noted in YchezqË´’l ("Ezekiel") 8: 10-11, immediately after he was shown the Impostor entering where he should not, into the Pure Area (to accomplish the Transgression):

10. So I went out and I looked and here were every image of detestable creeping things and beasts and every worshiped image of the House of Yisrâ’Ë´l carved on the wall from every side round about.

11. And seventy men from the elders of the House of Yisrâ’Ë´l and Ya’azanYâ´huw (“Yâ-hwéh hears”) the son of Shâphâ´n were standing in front of them, among the ones standing, and each one held his censer in his hand, and the odor of the cloud of the incense rising. [YirmYâ´huw 7: 30]

The fact that YchezqË´’l himself was sent in the spirit to OUR future, and there recognized the self (néphesh) of one of the people from his time-period in this setting in OUR future means this evil man was recycled, perhaps even many times, even having made a negative decision about the Glad Tidings, for them to accomplish the unfinished Transgression and accumulate wrath on these.

The Second Shaking: how all the sons of ’Âthâ´m shall be saved.

Scriptures show that Yâ-hwéh will once more shake the heavens and the earth, and every knee shall bow and every tongue shall profess that Yâhuwshúa` is Yâ-hwéh, and that all our righteousness is from Him (Chaggáy 2: 6-9, `Ivríym 12: 26-29, Chanówkh 55). Realize that this is the saving Testimony, which will apply the Ransom He made for us, all mankind, by the New Covenant. Note also that this covenant does NOT include Satan nor his envoys nor their sons. Therefore, this functions as a filter to save ALL mankind, but not the Adversary nor his hosts nor their progeny, the evil spirits and their race which will emerge from women (Chanówkh 15, esp v 10). When is this going to happen? Logically at the end moment when everyone is still alive, right? Thus this must be after the second resurrection, and before the fire of the valley of Hinnom. Study chapter 20 of Disclosure ("Revelation") from our translation, carefully.

So now, understanding this, you see that the dead standing before the Great White Throne are those formerly wicked ones who died - this IS after the second resurrection - and that they have already been judged. And from MattithYâ´huw 25: 31-46, you see that the righteous sheep are separated from the cursed goats. Now, understand that these sheep are humans, sons of ’Âthâ´m, who once were the wicked ones resurrecting but who professed the Testimony when Yâ-hwéh Yâhuwshúa` shook the heavens and the earth so now they are considered righteous; whereas these goats are the race of the evil spirits, which emerged from women, sons of the satans, because these issued from the rotting corpses of the dead giants, the sons of the fallen envoys, which though they professed the Testimony also, do not have such a covenant as we humans do to become justified. This is how all mankind will be saved. All that the Father gave Yâhuwshúa` He will keep.

What about the son of Perdition?

This is a controversial issue, and there are varying degrees of awareness among Christians about this.  Therefore we begin simple, probably with things you already know:
The son of Perdition is mentioned twice in the KJV, once in “John” (Yâhuwchânâ´n’s Glad Tidings) 17: 12, and once in “2 Thessalonians” (2 Thessaloníkeans) 2: 3.
“Perdition” is an accurate and revealing translation because in `Ivríyth, this would be the term ’Avadówn which means “to become lost/ to wander off/ to perish”.  In this form, it is also seen in KJV “Revelation” (Disclosure) 9: 11.
Studying these few verses, one sees that Yehuwthâ´h (whose name is distorted in KJV to "Judas") is the son of Perdition, that this same son of Perdition is the impostor to come (“antichrist”), and that by the time of the fifth trumpet, he will be the envoy (angel) of the pit, the king of those ‘locusts’.  Envoys are immortal, and this will have been made possible by him invading the Separate pure place, as mentioned also in 2 Thessaloníkeans.
We also prominently see in Disclosure (“Revelation”) 19: 20 this one is cast alive into the lake of fire which burns with brimstone.  Most think this is forever, since Yâhuwshúa` said in His prayer to His Power (“Father”) that He has kept all that were given to Him except the son of Perdition.
However, Yâhuwshúa` also said good works can be done on the Day of Rest, such as saving a sheep which fell into a well (MattithYâ´huw 12: 11) and that anyone would leave ninety-nine sheep behind to go after one which has been lost (Luwqá’ 15: 3-6), and one can see Yâhuwshúa` spoke also to this sheep of perdition in MattithYâ´huw chapter 18.  But scriptures outside the canon have much more detail, see the Glad Tidings of Tâ’ówm 107 and the Glad Tidings of the Truth for the easiest available and most obvious evidence of Yâ-hwéh Yâhuwshúa`’s plan to save the life of the lost sheep on the Day of rest.
However, more clearly than any of these is the scriptural evidence found within the restored Decalogue (Ten messages), which is commonly known as the “Ten Commandments”.  We have restored these Ten Messages according to the Morphologically analyzed Septuagint (LXXM) and nearly all this information is found therein.  Note: the restored result is quite more detailed than the establishment's version, which is apparently quite summarized, to hide their guilty plans.

We strongly recommend studying all scripture, including these we mention here, in order to see the amazing depth of Yâ-hwéh’s compassion.

Conclusion:

Let all our believing or name-denying brothers admit that our hope does not lie in where we spend our post-mortem bodiless existence, but rather that our hope lies in the will of Yâ-hwéh being done in our lives, to make us mighty ones like Him, knowing good and evil and avoiding all evil, and having eternal life and incorruptibility, having reached our potential growths that He had in mind for each of us individually. We human sons of ’Âthâ´m will all get to this point, what varies is HOW, what ROUTE we take. The best way is the Narrow Way, not having tasted death, entering His Kingdom on earth and growing all those 1,000 years to our potential prior to obtaining eternal life!  Therefore, those of us who live until His coming, who acknowledge His name and obey His commandments will never see Sh’ówl.  And at the Great White Throne, Sh’ówl and Death shall be cast into the Lake of Fire, so Sh’ówl is not forever, and its gates will not prevail over His Convocation. And last of all, the Lake of Fire is not for any of us except the son of perdition, the image of the Beast, but even he will be rescued from there, because ALL the works of Satan shall be undone, and he has not derailed Yâ-hwéh's plan at all. Don't overestimate Satan.
