Shemot 25 Torah For Eternal Life
It is not a verse. The message is instilled in the act of worship and only to the one who renders Him due worship, in the worship of El Shaddai may the worshiping nephesh be shown eternal life. When the Messiah came, He led those to eternal life in Him alone. This is not the biological life that is promised in words to those who walk in the Torah. The followers and the worshipers receive two different promises one apart from another.
The Nephesh From Beresheet 2
If the followers of the Torah had understood the concept of eternal life, then Nicodemus would have understood once pointed out by Y’shua in John 3. But he was confused. Nakdimon expressed his confusion in a very graphic way. Does he have to go back into the birth canal of his mother to be born a second time as a human life? But Y’shua acknowledged that Nakdimon had been born to the life of flesh already. That alone is not admissible to the kingdom of the Almighty. That said, a Jew can believe in God and he is yet outside of the City of God. Let that thought sink in. The same for a Gentile believer who never misses Sunday church. The born-once Christian is outside of the kingdom of God. The second birth points to the soul of the individual. In Beresheet 2, the picture of the original birth of the soul was clearly described. It involves the same Personalities. The Word of God manifest made the man adam out of the dirt. The man was flesh. It took the Word manifest to breath on the man the breath in order to become a living soul — the nephesh. Nephesh (נֶ֫פֶשׁ ) is a Biblical Hebrew word which occurs in the Hebrew Bible. In Beresheet 2:7 the text is not that Adam was given a nephesh but that Adam “became a living nephesh.
נפש, means ‘living being’ or ‘soul’.
7And יהוה Elohim formed the man out of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils breath of lives. And the man became a living being.
Breath of lives – neshama. Neshama (Hebrew: נשמה) is a Hebrew word which can mean “soul” or “spirit”.
The word nephesh is combined with another in the form nephesh chayyāh (נפש חיה), from chay meaning life (modern Israelis toast lechayyim, meaning ‘to life’). This is normally translated as ‘living creatures’ when referring to animals (e.g. Genesis 1:20), and ‘living soul’ when referring to manDavid Pitman (Nephesh Chayyah)
Sinners and non-believers do not possess the living being. They are wholly flesh and blood. The righteous person is one who puts his life in the Messiah. One who is baptized by Y’shua in the Ruwach haQodesh (Luke 3|16) is restored to the blueprint of how mankind was made to be before the fall of Adam. He shall love the LORD with all his heart, soul, mind and strength. It is a command. One of the most obvious violation among Jews today who are not in worship of Y’shua is the breaking of this law in Deuteronomy. It is because they lack one thing. Their identity as a nephesh is missing. With what you are not, you violate due to rebellion to Devarim 18| 15 –
15יהוה your Elohim shall raise up for you a Prophet like me from your midst, from your brothers. Listen to Him,
The man that was sent to fulfill this command is Y’shua.
Devarim 6 Aseret haDibbrot
On Sinai, this is the First Commandment given. That said, all Jews who refuse Y’shua have already stood convicted of this pesha. The word pesha, or “trespass”, means a sin done out of rebelliousness. This sin cannot be self-helped by turning away from iniquity. The man who turns from iniquity still does not become a nephesh. It is an act of the Almighty toward the one who loves Y’shua. Self efforts cannot accomplish what is only acted by El Shaddai.
And you must love the LORD your God with all your heart,
all your soul, and all your strength.
1And there was a man of the Pharisees, Naḵdimon was his name, a ruler of the Yehuḏim. 2This one came to יהושע by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from Elohim, for no one is able to do these signs You do if Elohim is not with him.” 3יהושע answered and said to him,
“Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born from above, he is unable to see the reign of Elohim.”
4Naḵdimon said to Him, “How is a man able to be born when he is old? Is he able to enter into his mother’s womb a second time and be born?” 5יהושע answered,
“Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he is unable to enter into the reign of Elohim.6“That which has been born of the flesh is flesh, and that which has been born of the Spirit is spirit.7Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You have to be born from above.’ ”
One that has been born of flesh is pointing to the biological life. In the Torah, there are promises to prolong life on earth, by walking in the statutes and the ordinances of the Lord. But the, the hidden message of eternal life in the Torah is now being laid plain by Messiah before the eyes of Nakdimon, called by John as a ruler of the Yehuḏim (v. 1).
If the ruler of the Yehudim who taught them the Torah did not even know about the eternal life, the lost lesson must be taught.
ALMONDS IN THE MENORAH
The almond is a well-known symbol of resurrection because it is the first tree to flower coming out of winter. The white, five-parted flowers are up to two inches across and come in the late winter before the leaves of the tree develop. Then in the second book of the Torah, we learn about the symbol for the resurrection for one fallen human that will one day expire. Shemot 25 –
And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying,
32and six branches shall come out of its sides: three branches of the lampstand out of one side, and three branches of the lampstand out of the other side; 33three cups made like almond flowers on one branch, with ornamental knob and blossom, and three cups made like almond flowers on the other branch, with ornamental knob and blossom – so for the six branches coming out of the lampstand. 34“And on the lampstand itself are four cups made like almond flowers, with ornamental knob and blossom,
In the Tanakh, symbols are given all through. When we understand Adonai’s intention of His wise use of these symbols, we learn His instructions adequately. When He sent His Messiah in Y’shua to come before, He explained to men how each was and is to be fulfilled.
That is the reason that we all must listen to every word that He says as instructed in Deuteronomy.
18I shall raise up for them a Prophet like you out of the midst of their brothers. And I shall put My Words in His mouth, and He shall speak to them all that I command Him.
Adonai still requires it of every Jew who ignores His instruction.
IN SEARCH OF ETERNAL LIFE FROM THE TORAH TEACHINGS
Before YHVH Almighty instructed for Moses to make the designs of the lampstand and the lamps in Exodus 25 after the almond blossom, in prophecy to the resurrection of the son of man, which His Son went to manifest in Advent, there in Beresheet, chapter 2, we learn that there is a tree called the Tree of Life.
9And out of the ground יהוה Elohim made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food, with the tree of life in the midst of the garden;
Where that tree Etz Chaim was not an almond tree, which simply is a symbol, and a symbol for resurrection, the actual tree in the middle of gan Eden was a tree whose fruit is suitable for man to consume, thus giving everlasting life. Without that tree, Adam lived only to 930 years. If he had not lost his privilege, then Adam would still be available today to teach us in 2020.
Israel’s almond trees are the first to bloom each year, coinciding with the Jewish holiday of Tu B’Shvat — Rosh HaShanah La’Ilanot (Hebrew: ראש השנה לאילנות), literally ‘New Year of the Trees‘. — which falls on the month of rain Sh’vat on the 15th day. Tu BiShvat is a Jewish holiday as well. To distinguish a Jewish holiday from the Bible holy days. Almond blossoms are extraordinarily beautiful, giving a white and pink glow to the cold winter and a promise of the warm spring ahead.
The Bible promises that all trace of this awful state of affairs will be removed with the final restoration of all things. The last chapters of Revelation foretell, with clear Edenic allusions, a restored new creation with no more death because there will be no more curse, and the Tree of Life will exist.— David Pitman (Nephesh chayyāh)

32 And there shall be six branches going out of its sides, three branches of the lampstand out of one side of it and three branches of the lampstand out of the other side of it;
ORNAMENT ON EACH BRANCH
33 three cups made like almond blossoms, each with calyx and flower, on one branch, and three cups made like almond blossoms, each with calyx and flower, on the other branch—so for the six branches going out of the lampstand.
SPECIAL INSTRUCTION FOR THE CENTRAL STAND

Adonai puts the almond blossoms in the menorah
6 X 3
1 X 4
22 is the count of letters in the Hebrew alephbets. Y’shua declares Himself the first and the last, the Aleph and the Tav.
The message from Adonai is, the concept of the almond bloom, symbolical of resurrection of the human that eventually expires, is actually hidden in each of whole language (Hebrew) within all the 24 books of the Tanakh. Only the talmidei chachamim shall seek and find that eternal life in the Word. The reader who does not seek Adonai shall not find eternal life in the Tanakh.
When Yeshua came, He plainly explained eternal life beginning with Nicodemus – You must be born of the Spirit. He revealed this mystery to the Rabbi in John 3. Then in the following chapter, Y’shua went to the Gerizim by the Well of Jacob. He reached out to a Samaritan about eternal life, in that order, first a Jew, in Judea, then in Samaria, just as He instructed His discipleship in Acts 1| 8. We shall be His witnesses.
13יהושע answered and said to her,
“Everyone drinking of this water shall thirst again,14but whoever drinks of the water I give him shall certainly never thirst. And the water that I give him shall become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”
In John 11, Y’shua repeated this lesson to Martha. It is only by obeying Devarim 18| 15, believeing his His words, that for one who believes in Him, that though he dies, shall live again.
24Martha said to Him, “I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.”
25יהושע said to her,
“I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he dies, he shall live.
A lesson to those who only read but do not bring their worship to the Lord, Y’shua addresses this situation then and now in John 5. The stage is a confrontation between the Jews of His time and the Messiah.
18Because of this, then, the Yehuḏim were seeking all the more to kill Him, ‘because not only was He breaking the Sabbath, but He also called Elohim His own Father, making Himself equal with Elohim.’
38“And you do not have His Word staying in you, because you do not believe Him whom He sent.
Because, Y’shua is the Word, Devar HaShem. Many people do not have Him in them for refusing to keep His words.
39“You search the Scriptures, because you think you possess everlasting life in them. And these are the ones that bear witness of Me. 40“But you do not desire to come to Me in order to possess life.
Many are still refusing to come to Y’shua in order to possess eternal life, and they won’t.
Repent to Adonai by coming to Y’shua.
To believe in Y’shua means to believe that He is that man that the Almighty sent. He says, He is the only begotten son of His Father. “I and the Father are one” – Adonai echad.
