More about the word Olam עוֹלָם

Hebrew words used for space are also used for
time. The Hebrew word qedem means “east” but
is also the same word for the “past.” The Hebrew
word olam literally means “beyond the horizon.”
When looking off in the far distance it is difficult to
make out any details and what is beyond that
horizon cannot be seen. This concept is the olam.
The word olam is also used for time for the distant
past or the distant future as a time that is difficult
to know or perceive. This word is frequently
translated as “eternity” meaning a continual span
of time that never ends. In the Hebrew mind it is
simply what is at or beyond the horizon, a very
distant time. A common phrase in the Hebrew is
“l’olam va’ed” and is usually translated as “forever
and ever,” but in the Hebrew it means “to the
distant horizon and again” meaning “a very
distant time and even further.”

“And to the man He said, “Because you have listened to the voice of your wife, and have eaten of the tree of which I commanded you, saying, ‘Do not eat of it’: “Cursed is the ground because of you, in toil you are to eat of it all the days of your life, and the ground shall bring forth thorns and thistles for you, and you shall eat the plants of the field. By the sweat of your face you are to eat bread until you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken. For dust you are, and to dust you return.” Berĕshith (Genesis)‬ ‭3:17-19

After the fall from grace in the garden there were two or more animals sacrificed to clothe them and that was the beginning of the Priesthood. That was when the King covered His creation who had lost their original covering.

“And what great nation is there that has such laws and righteous right-rulings like all this Torah which I set before you this day?” “Only, guard yourself, and guard your life diligently, lest you forget the Words your eyes have seen, and lest they turn aside from your heart all the days of your life. And you shall make them known to your children and your grandchildren.” Deḇarim (Deuteronomy)‬ ‭4:8-9

Exodus 21-23 has YaHuWaH’s judgements in them.

“In this way Elohim, resolving to show even more clearly to the heirs of promise the unchangeableness of His purpose, confirmed it by an oath, so that by two unchangeable matters in which it is impossible for Elohim to lie, we might have strong encouragement, we who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the expectation set before us, which we have as an anchor of the life, both safe and firm, and entering into that within the veil, where יהושע has entered as a forerunner for us, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Malkitseḏeq.” Iḇ`rim (Hebrews)‬ ‭6:17-20‬

“And I saw a great white throne and Him who was sitting on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away, and no place was found for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before the throne, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged from what was written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and She’ol gave up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. And Death and She’ol were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And if anyone was not found written in the Book of Life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.” Ḥazon (Revelation)‬ ‭20:11-15

YaHuWaH is constantly looking towards the teaching that cleanses. If you do not have the pattern and you do not watch over that which was handed down eternally you cannot go into the reign.

This is what the perpetual judgement is supposed to produce – The Melchizedek Priesthood.
