How to qualify to be Chosen to enter the kingdom of heaven
The Gate To Life in The City Of New Jerusalem, The Headquarters of Heaven, is very narrow and few will find it. And many are called but few are chosen.
Not everyone who says, “Lord, Lord, we have done many wonders in your name,” will enter the kingdom of heaven, because of their lawlessness.
This is the most important message that the human race has ever received from the Creator. The highest calling that the creator has designed for man.
The GATE TO LIFE is dedicated to honoring the name of our heavenly Father, obedience to His will, and bearing fruit for the kingdom of heaven. To be chosen to enter the gates of the city of paradise, believers must distinguish between salvation of the spirit by faith in the name of His Son for eternal life in heaven; and salvation of the carnal soul by good works, obedience and fruitfulness, for life in the kingdom of heaven.
The book, THE GATE TO LIFE, In the Kingdom of Heaven, is free on Kindle Unlimited or can be purchased in electronic or paperback form from the menu above.
Hebrew names of our heavenly father and his son
Our heavenly Father has stated hundreds of times in scripture that He wants all the nations of the world to know, honor, fear and call on his name.
Exodus 9:16 “But indeed for this purpose I raised you up, [Pharaoh] that I may show My power in you, and that My name may be declared in all the earth.”
Isaiah 43:11 “I, even I, am Yahuah and besides me there is no savior”
The Son of Yahuah, the Messiah, was given the name Yahusha, which means “Yahuah Our Righteousness” or “Yahuah Our Savior”. This is why He said that He came in His Father’s name, and why there is no other name under heaven by which we must be saved. Zechariah 6:11-13, Jeremiah 33:15,16
The Hebrew letters for Yahuah are YHUH. Rabbinical law forbids using the name of Yahuah, replacing it with Adoni, which means Lord. They still don’t use the name today. The Masoretic Hebrew text has added vowel points to guide readers to change “a” to “e” and “u” to “o”. So the name Yahu becomes Yeho, to eliminate the name of Yah. The Greek translators changed “Y” to “I” and the English changed the “I” to “J”, causing the name Yahu to become Jeho. In Latin and ancient English the letter for “u” was in the shape of a “v”, and “v v” was a double “u”, and later changed to “w”. So the letters “J”, “W” and “V” are recent English creations which replace “Y”, “uu” and “u”. See: kingjamesbibleonline.org
Restoring these changes, the name “Jehovah” becomes “Yahuuah”. Also, the commonly used name “Yahweh” also becomes “Yahuuah”.
It is a violation of the commandments to call Yahuah “Lord” because it is a name used by other gods, including Satan.
Exodus 23:13 And in all things that I have said to you be circumspect: and make no mention of the name of other gods, neither let it be heard out of your mouth.

salvation of the spirit by faith in the name of yahusha
Salvation of the spirit for eternal life in heaven is by faith in the name of Yahusha the Messiah and repentance of sin. It is a gift of Yahuah’s grace through faith, not by any work that the believer does. It cannot be lost by any sin, because it is not related to work and the believer cannot undo the creation of spirit life that Yahuah has done.
Believers are a very blessed, chosen generation. They should be grateful and serve Yahuah with their whole heart, bringing His love, knowledge, understanding, and wisdom to the world. But new believers are babes that need to do much work to train their character to serve Yahuah in the kingdom. They were given spirit life to open their understanding of spiritual things. They were given this life by faith alone, but they were chosen to do good works.
John 3:18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of Yahuah”
Ephesians 2:8-10 “For by grace you have been saved through faith and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of Yahuah, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in the Messiah Yahusha for good works, which Yahuah prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”

Salvation of the carnal soul by works and obedience
Man is a three part being, with a spirit, a soul and a body. After the spirit is given new life, there is still a carnal soul and body with bad habits. Hard work is necessary to develop character for obedience and bear fruit for the kingdom, to save the carnal soul. Salvation of the soul is defined as being chosen to enter the gate to life in the city of New Jerusalem, the headquarters of heaven.
Salvation by faith for eternal spiritual life occurs in a moment of time upon calling on the name of Yahusha for repentance. But salvation of the carnal soul requires work, labor, diligence, patient endurance, obedience, humility, faith and hope until the end of life to inherit the promises of glory and honor in the kingdom. This is why many are called but few are chosen.
James 2:14-26 “What does it profit, … if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? … Thus faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. … I will show you my faith by my works. … You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith alone. … For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.”
James is referring to salvation of the soul, by works, not salvation of the spirit, which is by faith.
