52 Weeks in the Ark with Noah and Family (WEEK 35) – An Enduring Vision and Mystery: The Seed, the Plant, the Fruit and the Sower/Harvester in Heavenly Yerushalem (Post-Earth/Post-Resurrection)

“Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to Yah for Israel is that they may be saved. For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for Yah, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of Yah’s righteousness, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted to the righteousness of Yah. For Masshiak is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.

For Moses writes about the righteousness which is of the law, ‘The man who does those things shall live by them.’ But the righteousness of faith speaks in this way, ‘Do not say in your heart, ‘Who will ascend into heaven?’ ‘ (that is, to bring Masshiak down from above) or, ‘ ‘Who will descend into the abyss?’ ‘ (that is, to bring Masshiak up from the dead). But what does it say? ‘The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart’ (that is, the word of faith which we preach): that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Yahusha and believe in your heart that Yah has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture says, ‘Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.’ For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Yahuah over all is rich to all who call upon Him. For ‘whoever calls on the name of Yahuah shall be saved.’ ‘ ”

Rom. 10:1-13

WEEK 35 (1st to 7th of Tevet, the 10th Month, in the Hebrew Religious Calendar)

The story of Noah and the Great Flood continues to be a great mystery to many of us. And no matter how much we look at it and analyze it, it still holds so many unexplainable and uncertain aspects that put the whole narrative under a cloud of doubt in many people’s minds. It is, after all, a story of faith told by people of faith and also requires much faith to accept and believe for what it is and as it is. Science cannot simply accept such things at face-value. We all have to prop up every fact, principle or theory upon provable information or solid evidences for it to be acceptable to most people. And even then, any proven fact or absolute truth need not be believed or followed by all.

With a very few exceptions, including the story of Adam and Havah and their immediate family, the only facts and truths that were real, existential and accepted as they were to 100% of humanity in all of history were the ones that pertained to the Great Flood. How so? ALL drowned in the Flood. Not one could have denied it happened because every single person drowned. Noah and his family saw it happened as they were spared from the judgment. Not a single soul then did not believe the Great Flood really happened.

Fast-forward to 2024: It would be safe to say that over half of the world’s population today does not believe it ever happened. And, most likely, over three-fourths of those who believe do not believe it happened the way we have pictured it here. Yet, as we have shown, the testimonies of scriptures and geology point to the vision and mystery we have unraveled so far. Take it or leave it.

The Greatest of All Visions and Mysteries

For there is a much greater vision and mystery that we must now seriously consider that would make the story of Noah – and all other stories we can ever think of throughout human history — pale in comparison. It is the vision and mystery of the Heavenly City of New Yerushalem. And we will consider it now as a continuation of our previous discussion on the Seed (Yahusha), the Plant (the Body of Yahusha) and the Fruit (Ruach). We had all we needed to cover their interrelationship in the previous discussion; however, the Real or Immediate Presence of the Sower (Abba Yahuah) eludes us. Heaven created all things in the beginning. Since then, all things have been sustained by the power and majesty of Elohim as One YahHead, although distinct in their revealed separate works and dealings with humans.

The Seed came and went to be with the Sower; while the Fruit was sent by the Sower to propagate the message of the Seed until the Final Harvest. (John 16) At the time of the coming Great Harvest, the Seed, the Plant, the Fruit and the Sower/Harvester will all be united in the promised glorious City of New Yerushalem. It is rather timely that we should discuss the New Yerushalem; because the old one is nowhere near what it was or what it is promised to be for believers – far from it! Noah saved and preserved the “seed” within him and upon the Earth. He and his family were responsible for refreshing the Earth until the Promised Seed would come. But in these Noah’s Days Part 2, the final refreshing will be one that requires a New Creation, a New Earth and a New Heaven. What we present, though it still uses metaphors or visual-materials of our old world, will be beyond comparison and imagination. We can only approximate its majesty and glory. But we will try.

The Floodwaters Still Cover the Earth while the Ark Rests on the Mountain Peak (c/o Google)

By this WEEK 35, Noah and his family patiently wait for the appearance of Land as the Ark stands firmly on a mountain top that remains covered by floodwaters. No sighting of dry land had been provided by Noah’s bird-scouts: the raven and the dove. Those 5 months of waiting would seem to many as uneventful months in the history of the Earth; however, we have said that it was during those hidden months that Yah performed some of the most cataclysmic and globe-transforming deeds ever done in the history of the Earth that would define the conditions of Planet Earth during the last 3 to 4 millennia. Our series has barely scratched the surface of that complex process that would produce a New Earth and New Heaven for Noah. And yet, that New Creation, as of our age, is already old and decaying. We need a new one and a much more enduring, beautiful and grandiose one. This is not a wish but a promise — no, a vision and a mystery we will now describe as much as we can!

Food and Eating Properly

As the story of Adam and Havah revolved around the issue of food and eating the proper food, the whole history of humankind has also revolved around proper ingestion or digestion of plants and meat, whether in the biological or spiritual sense. The Bread of Life came and was essentially spewed out by His own people, even until now. We have just finished discussing the issue on clean and unclean meat. Even the historical and religious narrative of His followers involved the divisive issue of which kind of bread was eaten during the so-called “Lord’s Supper” or “Communion”: leavened or unleavened bread. (And we also have a book on that issue downloadable for free at this link: The Agape: A Celebration of Love)

Today, the subject of food and proper nutrition in relation to human health and longevity has taken on the front-seat in the ongoing drive to return to natural nutrition or organic diet. On the other extreme, highly-processed and genetically-modified food-production, pose alternative modes of consumption for billions of humans being promoted by industries and corporations being supported by global elites. We have already dealt with the historical and spiritual roots of this ancient and present corruption of Creation aimed at reducing the quality of the human seed within us, as well as the eventual depopulation of humanity in the guise of providing highly-efficient social, political and economic programs within an envisioned new-world order. Sadly, this is the corrupted version (that is, the mesmerizing signs in these times being performed by demons posing as angels of light) of the real vision and mystery of Yah we now present.

From the Firstfruits to the Finalfruits

The Exalted Seed promised in the Garden to Adam and Havah now sits on His throne in Heaven at the right hand of the Almighty Sower. The Fruit, meanwhile, lives and thrives bountifully within the hearts and minds of millions of believers who could be literally the “finalfruits” of the Heavenly Harvest to come, in contrast to the “firstfruits” harvested by Yah on Pentecost day in Yerushalem. The work of planting by Yah, mind you, is an ongoing and earnest undertaking without let-up as Time closes on us all. We may not notice it or care about it a bit; for we all concern ourselves with the customary things we have been doing for the past decades or so. Many are indeed hunkering down for an eventual clash of ideas, cultures and forces, as this conflict is indeed observable on-print, online and in real-time. But like the condemned hybrids during Noah’s days, so many today go on their way tripping the “light fantastique” and standing on firm terra cotta. As the deep and the dark waters overwhelmed and swamped those wicked people into oblivion, many will be consumed by fervent fire in the last days.

As Yahusha often hinted, the good harvest will be taken into the barn; but the field of hay and wild grass will be burned and nothing will be left standing before the Reaper. And where is that barn? How does it look like?

Ultimate Transformation of All Creation

By then, the old Earth would have been burned into nothingness, along with all the “elements of this Creation”. Now, we do not mean the writer meant all the elements written on the Periodic Table; it means more than all the atomic, molecular or quantum matter of the Universe. He referred to the whole Creation – this Old Earth and Old Heaven (the Cosmos). If you have the harvest inside the barn, the seed you need to replant the field with good seed is taken from the fruits already gathered. However, this is the Final Harvest of the Earth. We talk about humans who have been resurrected and who now meet Yahusha and His angels in the air, most probably accompanied by the Fruit (Ruach) Who will present the Planting (the Kingdom) to the Seed and the Harvester. Yes, the Planting is the One, United Harvest of Creation. POST-EARTH AND POST-RESURRECTION.

The Planting now would be composed of the Saved who will have received new bodies and new spirits. The old being is gone, burned along with the Old Creation. The Resurrection of the Faithful Dead will be to Life Eternal in the New Creation; the Unfaithful Dead will go to the place reserved for the condemned. Books will be read: that of the Living or the Book of Life and that of the Dead or the Book of Death. (Rev. 20:12)

Yahusha on His Throne (c/o Google)


Just as in the beginning when Ruach Ha Kodesh hovered upon the deep before Creation came into existence, we will also hover with Him upon the deep (whether the same primeval waters or a new form of spiritual water, we can only imagine) and await the descent of New Yerushalem where the Seed and the Sower sit on the throne. And what John visited and saw in his vision will also be revealed to us in heavenly reality: the City Foursquare, Heavenly Yerushalem! It is pictured as box, an ark or a barn, with measurements based on angelic standards of length and height. We cannot hope to use our old standards to describe the glory and enormity of this city. We will talk about its structural appearance in the future. We wish only now to describe what the Seed, the Fruit and the Sower will do with the Planting which They will welcome into Their Presence.

John never mentioned or described any person in New Yerushalem aside from himself.  It was obviously for a future time yet to be revealed and fulfilled when the saved will enter the city. He only mentions the 12 tribes of Israel are represented by the 12 gates of pearl and the 12 foundations of magnificent gems. What he highlights are the Throne of Yah, the River of Life, and the Tree of Life. All 3 objects have Old-Earth meanings that convey New-Earth meanings or significances. Let us describe and explain one at a time:

No Sun, No Moon

In The Holy City, there is no Sun or Moon. Elohim become the Sun or Light-Giver. Or the very Light itself. Nothing exists or can been seen or perceived without Elohim. With new exalted bodies and spirits, we will probably have new forms of eyes and senses capable of discerning this new reality, as spirit-beings that we will be. Whereas those who see Yah and His glory will die in this Old Earth, in New Earth and New Heaven, we will live and share His glory eternally.

As Elohim shine all about us, we will also shine like Them. Just as the Sun’s light gives us energy and sustains our life through the food it produces (plants and fruits), as well as the Earth’s existence, Elohim’s Light in us will sustain us there in the Hoy City in order for us to be able to do the work They have for us. What that is we can never begin to know. Perhaps, the life of Adam, the First Gardener, will give us a clue. But that is for another time.

New Earth, New Life

From the Great Throne flows the River of Life that will sustain everyone who drinks of it. Is this the Ruach finally giving us heavenly existence that is of the same nature and essence as Ruach? That is, while we live in this dying body and sinful spirit awaiting death today, we will eventually have the awareness only of living and being sinless and having everlasting life that we can only imagine today through His inspiration and guidance? Can you see the difference?        

Ruach lives in us today as the water and blood that Yahusha gave up on the cross to save us and adopt us as children of Yah. In the Holy City, Ruach, the Water of Life and the Spiritual Blood of Elohim, will sustain our new bodies and spirits with a new paradigm of existence we cannot comprehend yet. The kind of water we drink from Ruach in the River of Life will also sustain our life and quench our thirst for the glorious things in store for us in the Holy City. New Earth, New Water and New Life.

The Crystal River and the Tree of Life (c/o Gregsloop)

The Tree of Life: New Body, New Life

Yahusha, the Seed, becomes the Tree of Life, just as He had been back in the Garden. Bread of Life that He is, He will nourish us with all the necessary delicacies and nutrition that will sustain our bodies in eternal existence. New Earth, New Body and New Life.

The Tree of Life gives 12 kinds of fruits, one each for every month. Now, this is a totally new kind of plant indeed. Not only will it sustain our eternal existence, it will sustain our desire for new things and a variety of blessings that will never falter. Perhaps, it means a new fruit for every month and a new batch of fruits for each year. How many types of fruits are there in the the world? Thousands and more. How is it not possible for Yahusha to be able to create an infinite number of fruits for eternity? Perhaps, we can even design our own fruits or request it from Yahusha. Why not? 3-D printers have nothing to offer us there. John’s vision predates and post-dates the possibilities of New Creation beyond what science and technology can ever produce. And though John used words such as month, it obviously does not refer to our month here in the Old Earth. Our experience of Time there will be completely different. So with the experience of food and eating, Even the very idea of living and existing. Our imagination fails to grasp such beautiful, glorious and majestic concepts.

If the fallen angels became so proficient at producing hybrids out of Creation and corrupting the Earth, we, as spirits-beings and children of Yah in New Yerushalem, can certainly produce unlimited amounts of good things and pleasant creations as well. For we will not only be fruit-pickers and eaters in the New Earth, we will have dominion and the power to create as well. For what have we created upon the Earth today which Elohim had not allowed? So, what would stop Them from enabling us to create good or perfect things that would please Them and multiply the goodness that They would give to us. Was that not what They exactly wanted Adam and Havah to achieve in the beginning? It will be also the same privileges and expectations They will have for us and from us in New Yerushalem, respectively.


Noah and the rest of the prophets after Enoch and before John neither visited nor saw this majestic vision and mystery of the ages. Yet, we all have a first-hand view of it through the enabling power of Ruach dwelling in us and giving us the hope and the reality — no, the virtual, spiritual experience — of how it will be in Heavenly Yerushalem in the New Heaven and New Earth. All our hope, faith, love and worship converge on this ultimate vision of glory, honor and immortality in the Presence of Elohim, the angels, and all the saved souls since the beginning of Time.

Perhaps, it is high time for us all to finally leave all the elementary things about Yahusha, and it follows, about His Gospel, as Paul said:

Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Masshiak, let us go on to perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward Yah, of the doctrine of baptisms, of laying on of hands, of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. And this we will do if Yah permits.

Heb. 6:1-3

What was Paul referring to other than our old, hackneyed beliefs and practices about the story of salvation, all our traditions. ceremonies, celebrations and feast-keeping that seem to always bring us back to the “elementary principles” but never bringing us any closer to achieving the maturity or perfection of Yahusha’s and Ruach’s glorious character? (2 Cor. 3:7-18) What made Paul ask this question? Perhaps, for the same reasons we ask it now again, if we strive to see his anguish? When will we do it? And why can we not do it after all this time? What will cause us to do it now and never go back on our steps? To be perfect, as the Father above is perfect. Only Yah and His genuine and perfect vision and mystery He has given us through John will allow us to do it. But will we do it?
