YHWH only has one people, and they are called Yisrayl.
Yahushua did not come to launch a new religion.
There is only one way of salvation.
ONE SHEPHERD and ONE FLOCK
So what did the early believers follow in the book of Acts?
“And I have other sheep which are not of this fold. I must also lead those, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock, one Shepherd.” [John 10:16] Who are these other sheep? “But answering, He said, I was not sent except to the lost sheep of (the) house of Israel.” [Matthew 15:24]

"WHO ARE YAHWEH'S PEOPLE?"
The Creator YHWH made covenant with only one people The Savior Yahushua came to redeem His people – all the 12 Tribes from their sins, and to re gather the lost sheep of the House of Yisrayl who had been scattered among all the nations of the world.
Luke 1:68-79 " Blessed be YHWH the Mighty One of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people, And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David; As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began: That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us; To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant; The oath which he sware to our father Abraham, That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear, In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life."
" And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest: for thou shalt go before the face of YHWH to prepare his ways; To give knowledge of salvation unto his people by the remission of their sins, Through the tender mercy of our Mighty One; whereby the day spring from on high hath visited us, To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.
Matthew 1:21 "And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Yahushua : for he shall save His people from their sins."
Luke 2:25-32 "And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Spirit was upon him. And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Spirit, that he should not see death, before he had seen YHWH's Messiah.
" And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Yahushua, to do for him after the custom of the law, Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed YHWH, and said, YHWH, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word: For mine eyes have seen thy salvation, Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people; A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel.

Isaiah 41:8-14 But thou, Israel, art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend. Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called thee from the chief men thereof, and said unto thee, Thou art my servant; I have chosen thee, and not cast thee away. Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy Mighty One: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish. Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought.

As we already have established, if you have read through the previous pages carefully, Yisrayl is not just a country over in the Middle East, and it is not only comprised of one of the tribes - namely Judah. Yisrayl includes all of the 12 Tribes who are the descendants of Jacob. Yisrayl is YHWH's chosen people, His only Bride, and who the Father is re gathering now in these last days from all the places where she has been scattered.
In the New Jerusalem
You will not find a gate for the "church".
There are only 12 gates
And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from YHWH, Having the glory of YHWH: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates. Revelation 21:10-13
Yahushua walked according to the Law, He fulfilled the Law, not destroyed it. So when He died, was buried and rose again on the third day, conquering sin, and sent His Spirit in Acts chapter 2, He empowered us so WE ALSO could obey the Law through the power of HIS Spirit within us!!
" There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in the Messiah Yahushua, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Messiah Yahushua hath made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, YHWH sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. Romans 8:1-4
If the Law was 'done away with' then what does this verse mean, but the righteousness of the law being fulfilled within us?
"For as many as are led by the Spirit of Elohim, these are the sons of YHWH. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out 'ABBA FATHER'.
