Why did I decide to share with you my heavenly experiences and revelations? Because telling others about the kingdom of Heaven is part of the gospel. In fact, it was the central theme of Yeshua's message.
From then on, Yeshua began to proclaim, “Turn away from your sins, for the kingdom of heaven is near.” (Matthew 4:17) 

My dear readers and listeners, as an author, I thank the Lord for your hearts, which are ready to listen to the message given to me by the Almighty. The book In My Father's House became my personal mission for five years. What I have shared with my readers in my book is only a small part of the revelations that the Lord gave me. I was faced with the immense task of conveying these revelations to other people and supporting them with Scripture. It is especially complicated by the fact that not many people understand the Word of God. Many people are limited in their understanding of God’s Word because of the doctrines of men.
When I started writing my book, I tried to include as many Scripture verses as possible, supporting the controversial passages. However, soon my book began to look like a book of theology rather than a personal testimony. I had to reduce the volume of the manuscript to one-third of its original size. Then I decided to write footnotes or comments for each chapter. But later, I realized that it would take at least another year or more to complete the task. However, out of a desire to share my testimonies and revelations, I decided to publish the book as an abridged version. I will continue to work on comments related to the controversial parts of the book and publish them on my YouTube channel and on the website www.irenepetrabooks.com

From then on, Yeshua began to proclaim, “Turn away from your sins, for the kingdom of heaven is near.”
(Matthew 4:17)


Yeshua often shared with His disciples the revelations of the kingdom of Heaven and the spiritual world. They were often in the form of parables and figurative pictures.
Some people may be surprised to find out that Yeshua is the author of the Revelation, for He was the one who gave it to the apostle John. 


The revelation of Yeshua the Messiah, which God gave Him to show to His servants the things that must soon take place. He made it known by sending His angel to His servant John…
(Revelation 1:1 TLV)


In the minds of many, the book of Revelation is associated with the apostle John and for this reason is often attributed to him. However, the apostle John was only a messenger, like the angels of God. They are often nameless during their mission to bring God’s revelation to people. In the book of Revelation, God revealed His great plan to His creation through His son Yeshua the Messiah. The Lord, in turn, revealed this to the angels and saints. John was only a mediator in this great mission.
In Revelation, there are many details about the Heavenly Kingdom and its future. However, Revelation itself is simply a commentary on the most important books of Scripture: the Five Books of Moses, or the Torah (Instruction) of the Most High. Moses is one of the most important figures in the history of mankind. It was through him that God, through His Son, conveyed the revelation of the Kingdom of Heaven. Everything that Moses wrote down is the multi-layered wealth of God's wisdom, which even the angels of heaven want to grasp.
Unfortunately, some believers, in their ignorance, decided that the Five Books of Moses are now out of date. They believe that they should not bother to study those ancient ceremonies and laws because they now have the New Testament, and the laws which were given to Moses hopelessly became old and useless. This attitude towards the Torah of the Lord was due to a misunderstanding of the difference between a covenant and a law or commandment.
Hebrews 8 contrasts the old covenant with the new covenant. 

For if that first one had been faultless, there would not have been discourse seeking a second. For finding fault with them, He says, “Behold, days are coming, says Adonai, when I will inaugurate a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah. It will not be like the covenant I made with their fathers on the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt. For they did not remain in My covenant, and I did not care for them, says Adonai. For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says Adonai. I will put My Torah into their mind, and upon their hearts I will write it. And I will be their God, and they shall be My people. And no more will they teach, each one his fellow citizen and each one his brother, saying, ‘Know Adonai,’ because all will know Me, from the least of them to the greatest. For I will be merciful toward their iniquities, and their sins I will remember no more.” In saying “new,” He has treated the first as old; but what is being made old and aging is close to vanishing. (Hebrew 8:7-13 TLV)

When you open a modern translation of the Bible, you will see its division into two parts: the Old Testament and the New Testament. However, at the time of the writing of the book of Hebrews, there was a different division of Scripture: the Torah (the Five Books of Moses), the Prophets, and the Writings. Yeshua himself even adhered to this order:


“Then He said to them, “These are My words which I spoke to you while I was still with you—everything written concerning Me in the Torah of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled.”
(Luke 24:44 TLV)



“Do not think that I came to abolish the Torah or the Prophets! I did not come to abolish, but to fulfill. Amen, I tell you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or serif shall ever pass away from the Torah until all things come to pass. (Matthew 5:17-18 TLV)


The concept of the new covenant was known at the time of Jeremiah, who prophesied about a new level of relationship with the Lord of the people of Israel (Jeremiah 31: 31-33) and was quoted by the author of the epistle to the Hebrews. However, only the covenant itself between God and the people of Israel was old. There was a need to update it to a more spiritual level, to raise the bar in the relationship between God and His people. Therefore, His law or Torah is not written anymore on tablets of stone, but on the tablets of the hearts of every believer. It is the same law of the Lord - only now it is in the form of a renewed, updated covenant.
When people open the modern translation of the Bible and see the erroneous division of the Word of the Lord into the Old and New Testaments, they may mistakenly assume that the books of the "Old Testament" are no longer needed. However, according to the prophet Jeremiah and the author of the letter to the Hebrews, the Torah (law) of the Lord is the central part of the New Testament.
The apostle John noticed in the book of Revelation that in Heaven the saints sang the song of Moses: 

And I saw something like a sea of glass mixed with fire, and those who had overcome the beast and his image and the number of his name standing by the sea of glass, holding the harps of God. And they are singing the song of Moses the servant of God and the song of the Lamb, saying, “Great and wonderful are Your deeds, Adonai Elohei-Tzva’ot! Just and true are Your ways, O King of the nations! Who shall not fear and glorify Your name, O Lord? For You alone are Holy. All the nations shall come and worship before You, for Your righteous acts have been revealed!” (Revelation 15:2-4 TLV)

Moses is not only a respected figure among the saints in heaven during the end times but also associated with the Son of God in this song of the Lamb.
The Five Books of Moses are God's instructions, in symbols, regarding the Heavenly Kingdom, its orders, and laws. The Torah (teaching) of the Lord is like an ark full of spiritual wealth and heavenly revelations. This spiritual ark was closed for a time from many people. However, when Yeshua came, He became the key that opens this ark of spiritual gifts and revelations for human understanding. 


Now I heard, but I did not understand. So I said, ‘My Lord, what will be the outcome of these things?’ Then he said: “Go your way, Daniel. For the words are closed up and sealed until the time of the end.
(Daniel 12:8-9 TLV)


With Daniel, the word of revelation given to him through a heavenly angel was closed for a time. In the same way, the Torah of the Lord, the instruction of the Most High, was not fully understood by believers until the Son of God came and opened it to us.


The woman tells Him, “I know that Messiah is coming (He who is called the Anointed One.) When He comes, He will explain everything to us.”
(John 4:25 TLV)


Yeshua is the one who proclaims the revelations of God.


“So do not fear them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be revealed and nothing hidden that will not be made known. What I tell you in the darkness, speak in the light; and what you hear in your ear, proclaim from the housetops!”
(Matthew 10:26-27 TLV)


To understand the kingdom of Heaven, you need to understand the language of symbols that are used to communicate in the spiritual world. The Five Books of Moses reflect profound truths; it is similar to how the blueprints of a house can reflect the architecture of the building itself. If we do not understand what these symbols and images mean, we will never discover the depth of the Lord's wisdom and His nature. Through His revelations, the Most High shows Himself, His essence, and His love, as well as the plan of salvation and predestination for each of His creation.

For when every commandment had been spoken by Moses to all the people according to the Torah, he took the blood of the calves and goats, with water and scarlet wool and hyssop, and he sprinkled both the book itself and all the people. He said, “This is the blood of the covenant which God commanded you.” And in the same way, he sprinkled the tabernacle and all the vessels of the ministry with the blood. And nearly everything is purified in blood according to the Torah, and apart from the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness. Therefore it was necessary for the replicas of these heavenly things to be purified with these sacrifices—but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. For Messiah did not enter into Holies made with hands—counterparts of the true things—but into heaven itself, now to appear in God’s presence on our behalf. (Hebrew 9:19-24 TLV)

Moses received the image of the visible, so that the invisible, the heavenly, might be prophetically reflected in the visible: 


Now if He were on earth, He would not be a kohen at all, since there are those who offer the gifts according to the Torah. They offer service in a replica and foreshadower of the heavenlies—one that is just as Moses was instructed by God when he was about to complete the tabernacle. For He says, “See that you make everything according to the design that was shown to you on the mountain.”
(Hebrew 8:4-5 TLV)



The Torah has a shadow of the good things to come—not the form itself of the realities. For this reason it can never, by means of the same sacrifices they offer constantly year after year, make perfect those who draw near.
(Hebrew 10:1 TLV)


Why does the Almighty speak to us in the language of symbols and images? The Lord Himself answered this question: 

Then the disciples came to Him and said, “Why do You speak to them in parables?” And He replied to them, “To you has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. For whoever has, to him more will be given and he will have plenty. But whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him. For this reason I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear nor do they understand. ”And in them the prophecy of Isaiah is being fulfilled, which says, ‘You will keep on hearing but will never understand; you will keep looking, but will never see. For the heart of this people has become dull, their ears can barely hear, and they have shut their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, and understand with their hearts. Then they would turn back, and I would heal them.’ “But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear. Amen, I tell you, many a prophet and tzaddik longed to see what you are seeing and did not see, and to hear what you are hearing and did not hear.” (Matthew 13:10-17 TLV)

Also, we can read in the book of Daniel:


Many will be purified, made spotless and refined, but the wicked will act wickedly. None of the wicked will understand, but the wise will understand.
(Daniel 12:10 TLV)


The greatest revelation of the Most High came through Yeshua the Messiah, the Son of Man. It was through Him that the Creator and Most High chose to reveal Himself to us in a way that we could understand, even in our imperfect position of sinful nature. Through the Holy Spirit proceeding from the Father, revelations of His kingdom are given to the human race.
It is to this glorious ministry that I have been called by my Lord to become a vessel of His revelations for the blessing of His people. The word of His revelations is the word of His gospel, His good news of the kingdom of Heaven.
And now the Holy Spirit is calling everyone who hears: turn to the Lord and His Spirit, for the kingdom of Heaven has drawn near! 


Then he tells me, “Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is near. Let the evildoer still do evil, and the filthy still be filthy, and the righteous still do righteousness, and the holy still be holy. Behold, I am coming soon, and My reward is with Me, to pay back each one according to his deeds.
(Revelation 22:10-12 TLV)
