Shalom! My name is Adam Pastor

Welcome to ADONI MESSIAH which means
"My Lord Messiah" -
a fitting epithet to who Jesus (or Yeshua) is!

Here, I attempt to present the Apostolic Truths according to the Scriptures, that there is
One GOD, the Father, namely, YAHWEH,
and One Lord, GOD's only begotten Son,
Yeshua the Messiah.

And that one day YAHWEH will send His Son back to Earth to inaugurate the Everlasting Kingdom of GOD

The scriptures shows us where the saints will be!

All the resurrected saints will be WITH CHRIST.
Therefore, where Christ is, is where his people will be. [John 14:3]

The Scriptures DO SHOW US where Christ will be, in fulfillment of all the prophets. Therefore, the Scriptures DO SHOW US where the saints go!

Christ will RETURN to this planet to reign from Jerusalem, which will be the capital city of the Kingdom of GOD upon the earth. The saints shall reign with him upon the earth, over all the nations!
  • YES! The saints will physically ascend in the sky to meet Jesus Christ as he returns
  • YES! The saints will be physically CAUGHT UP to meet the returning Lord Messiah in the air
  • YES! The saints are indeed going to a city. Jerusalem will be restored & renovated and it will be the Capital City of the Kingdom of GOD.
    The saints will be going to a city
    ... the same city Abraham sought after .... Heb 11:10
  • The saints are NOT going into oblivion nor will they vanish! Neither are they going to Heaven! You know why? Because Messiah Jesus won’t be there!!
    And Messiah Jesus promised where he will be, that’s where the saints will be.
    Messiah Jesus is coming back to earth. He is not going to stay or return to Heaven to reign
    [Acts 3:21, Luke 19:11ff]
  • And above all WE DO KNOW where the saints will be because the Scriptures tells us where!
  • (Acts 3:21) Whom the heaven must receive [RETAIN] until the times of restitution [RESTORATION] of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.
  • Heaven must retain him UNTIL
  • (Luke 19:11-19ff) And as they heard these things, he added and spake a parable, because he was nigh to Jerusalem, and because they thought that the kingdom of God should immediately appear. 12 He said therefore, A certain nobleman [I.E. JESUS] went into a far country [I.E. HEAVEN] to receive for himself a kingdom [SEE DAN 7.13-14], and to return. 13 And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come. … 15 And it came to pass, that when he was returned, having received the kingdom, then he commanded these servants to be called unto him, to whom he had given the money, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading. 16 Then came the first, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds. 17 And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities. 18 And the second came, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds. 19 And he said likewise to him, Be thou also over five cities.
  • The faithful are given authority over cities
  • (Rev 2:26-27) And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power/AUTHORITY over the nations: 27 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.
  • (Rev 5:9-10) And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; 10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
  • (Dan 7:13-14) I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. 14 And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.
    (Dan 7:27) And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.
  • The Kingdom under the whole heaven not in Heaven!
    The Kingdom of Heaven/GOD (The K.of GOD & K.of Heaven mean the very same thing) will be a Kingdom under the whole heaven i.e. upon the earth.
    It is the Kingdom of Heaven not the Kingdom in Heaven!

    In other words, a Heavenly Kingdom is a Kingdom set up by GOD Himself. Generally in Scripture, something described as heavenly, is something that comes from GOD. It is GOD Himself who will set up this Kingdom. Therefore the Kingdom of GOD will indeed be a heavenly kingdom upon the earth!!
  • (Dan 2:34-35) Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. 35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain,
    and filled the whole earth.

    (Dan 2:44) And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.
  • The Kingdom that GOD will set up, namely, the Kingdom of GOD or the Kingdom of Heaven, will fill the whole earth and it will be a Kingdom under the whole heaven; its capital city being Jerusalem.
    This is the Kingdom where Jesus the Messiah will reign from!!
  • (Luke 1:32-33) He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: 33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
    (Psa 132:11) YAHWEH hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne.
    (Isa 9:7) Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of YAHWEH of hosts will perform this.
    (Mark 11:10) Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord [YAHWEH]: Hosanna in the highest.
  • (2 Chr 13:8) And now ye think to withstand the kingdom of YAHWEH in the hand of the sons of David; …
    (1 Chr 28:5) And of all my sons, (for YAHWEH hath given me many sons,) he hath chosen Solomon my son to sit upon the throne of the kingdom of YAHWEH over Israel.
    (2 Chr 9:8) Blessed be YAHWEH thy God, which delighted in thee to set thee on his throne, to be king for YAHWEH thy God: because thy God loved Israel, to establish them for ever, therefore made he thee king over them, to do judgment and justice.
    (1 Chr 29:23) Then Solomon sat on the throne of YAHWEH as king instead of David his father, and prospered; and all Israel obeyed him.
    (Mat 12:42 … behold, a greater than Solomon is here.
  • Jesus the Messiah, the Greater Son of David, the Greater than Solomon, will indeed reign from the throne of David in Jerusalem, in fulfillment of ALL that the holy prophets have spoken since the world began.
    The Kingdom of GOD = The Kingdom of Heaven =
    The Kingdom of our father David

    Just as David and Solomon, sat upon the throne of the Kingdom before him, Jesus the Messiah, will indeed sit upon the throne of David at his return in fulfillment of …
  • (Ezek 21:26-27) Thus saith the Lord YAHWEH; Remove the diadem, and take off the crown: this shall not be the same: exalt him that is low, and abase him that is high. 27 I will overturn, overturn, overturn, it: [i.e. the throne] and it shall be no more, until he come whose right it is; and I will give it him.
  • Messiah Jesus being the promised Son of David will indeed inherit the throne of David at his return. The throne will be located, where the throne of David was situated before, … in Jerusalem, the city of David, the city of the Great King. [Matt 5.35]
  • The Kingdom of GOD upon the earth will be the grand restoration/renovation of David’s Kingdom. Indeed, GOD has given His Kingdom into the hands of the sons of David. Hence, David’s Kingdom is indeed, GOD’s Kingdom. David’s throne is indeed GOD’s throne.
  • David’s Kingdom/Throne was never ever located in Heaven. Nothing will change that!
    Messiah Jesus, the Son of David, will indeed return to reign upon the throne of David in the Kingdom of GOD.
    And of his Kingdom, there will be no end.
    To the faithful, Messiah Jesus will give authority over nations and cities. The saints shall reign with him even as he promised.
    [2 Tim 2:12, Rev 5:9-10, 20:12]
    It is at Christ’s return, that indeed, GOD’s Kingdom would have come. UNTIL THEN we must pray
    (Mat 6:10) Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
    It is at Christ’s return, that THEN, shall the will of GOD be done IN THE EARTH.
  • The Kingdom of GOD = The Kingdom of Heaven =
    The Kingdom of our father David
  • (Jer 23:5) Behold, the days come, saith YAHWEH, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.
    (Jer 33:15) In those days, and at that time, will I cause the Branch of righteousness to grow up unto David; and he shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land/earth.
    (Same Heb. word)
    (Mat 25:31) When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, THEN shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
    (Mat 19:28) And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration [REBIRTH/RESTORATION OF OUR PLANET]
    WHEN the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
    (Luke 22:29-30) And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me; 30 That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
    (Psa 122:5) For there are set thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David.
The list of verses that speak of these things, goes on and on … however, I will end here.

The Scriptures DO tell us where the saints are going. The Scriptures DO tell us where the saints will be and what they will be doing. The Scriptures DO tell us what will happen at the return of Christ. There is no need for any of us to be vague or ignorant of these wondrous truths.

The saints will NOT leave this planet to go up yonder to Heaven! The saints will NOT vanish! The earth will never be vacated. The earth shall forever be inhabited. This earth shall be restored & renovated.

The saints shall reign over the nations. The immortalized shall reign over the mortals.

Yes! The ‘Left Behind’ scenario is false. So is, the teaching that Messiah Jesus shall come and snatch the saints up, up & away into Heaven.
NO! The Scriptures teach no such thing. The prophets/apostles spoke of no such things.

This planet is groaning for the return of Christ, for it is THEN, that the sons of GOD will be manifested … it is THEN that the Kingdom will comeit is THEN that ...
the restitution/restoration/regeneration/renovation of all things including the House of David [Acts 15:16] shall begin; it is THEN that the will of GOD shall be done upon the earth; it is THEN that peace, justice and righteousness shall reign upon the earth through King Messiah Jesus, who will THEN sit upon the throne of his glory in Jerusalem.

The prophets speak of a literal Kingdom with a literal King sitting upon a literal Throne on the literal Earth.
Reader, … believest thou the prophets?
... (Acts 26:27)
