Hi! I'm Pastor Floyd! I wish I had a photograph of you, too, so that I could visualize to whom I am talking! But Yahuah Hayah, the Self-Existent, Eternal I AM, the Creator of all and King over it, knows who you are; and that's all that matters!

Welcome to our friends all over the world! Whoever you are, whatever time of day it is for you, the amazing and wonderful thing is that we are together for this hour, fulfilling Yahuah's prophecy through Yeshua:

This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come! (Matthew 24:14)

Let us pray:

Our heavenly Father, I want to thank you for moving the hearts of your children to watch and listen to this broadcast in such amazing numbers and then to respond personally as they have, to D.J., in regard to what they have learned! Of primary interest, Father, has been those who have come wanting prayer for their individual needs! I speak to those needs, Father, of whatever they may consist, and command that they be met completely and adequately! And I thank you, Father, for the answer to those needs that you have now put into ha Kodesh Ruach, Your Holy Spirit, to bless all those who have shown their faith in You by asking for this prayer! We know, Father, by Your word through Yeshua, that for men these things are impossible but with you, our Creator and King, all things are possible; and we give you the praise and the glory that all things are now done to fulfill gloriously the desires of those who have come to us with faith in their hearts to believe that you have the answers for which they have been looking!

Thank you for being with us, now; and, as I speak your word, make it alive in the hearts of all who are hearing me.

We thank you for all of this, Father; and we pray it in the mighty name of Yeshua ha Mawshiyach, Whom we love with all our hearts! Amen!

Last week we were moving through Matthew's Gospel; and here is where we left off:

24 The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord. 25 It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household? 26 But fear them not! (Matthew 10:24 to 26)

Interestingly, many of Yahuah Hayah's beloved children believe that they are indeed above their "master" and "lord" in being above Him Who created them and able, presumably, to make decisions apart from Him and come out effectively dealing with the lives that He has given them on Earth! But that course of action is plagued with problems that guarantee failure rather than fulfillment and a world of frustration! So not being "above" one's "master" or "lord" is wisdom indeed; and one is well advised to heed it.

On the other hand, being "as" one's master or lord is highly advisable, so long as the similarity does not enter into the presumptuousness of replacing the master or lord. Yahuah Hayah wants His children to be like Him; He said, through Yeshua: "Be ye ... perfect, even as your Father Who is in Heaven is perfect." (Matthew 5:48)

Some people cannot absorb the idea of being "perfect" even as God is perfect and so try to argue that that the word being translated means “in the process of becoming perfect”; but Yahuah Hayah has never been in any such process; He is "I AM", which is all that is, has been or ever will be. He is, indeed, "perfect"; and what the people who stumble over His commandment to "be … perfect" do not realize is that "with men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible" (Matthew 19:26), His making things perfect for His beloved children being possible through their use of the dominion that He has given them.

The word translated "perfect" actually means "complete"! (Strong: Greek: 5046) And for that to apply to Yahuah Hayah, it may as well mean "perfectly complete"; for in Him there are no halfway measures! He said: "Because thou art lukewarm and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of My mouth!" (Revelation 3:16) So how does one achieve the perfection He wants for His beloved children?

The example given by Yeshua for one's use of his dominion begins with His commanding: "Have faith in God"! And it involves saying to a "mountain" (Mark 11:23), that it be "removed and cast into the sea"! (Verse 23) I believe He picked an impossible assignment for the mountain to illustrate how the human dominion can tackle anything to which we want to put it; because, obviously, it is expedited by ha Kodesh (the Holy) Ruach (Spirit); and what is impossible for the Spirit Who created all things and is maintaining them to this day?

So, when we say to ourselves: "Be ye perfect!", Yahuah Hayah recreates us in that perfection and lodges it in His Holy Spirit, to where, if you "believe ye receive, ye shall have it" (Mark 11:24), including the perfection for which you have asked!

Don't ask me how that is accomplished; I am not God! But, when He explained His dominion through Yeshua, He talked about moving mountains; and He did not place any limitation on what the dominion He has given us is capable of achieving! So I have said, to myself, "Be ye ... perfect, even as your Father Who is in Heaven is perfect" (Matthew 5:48); by my "faith in God" I have believed that I have received that perfection; and I walk in the expectancy that such a perfection is being accomplished in me each moment of my day! And, do you know what? Each of my days is perfect for me!

I don't care what may seem to be going wrong; it never fails that, if I never lose sight of the perfection I have spoken for myself, the wrong becomes right, in due time; and I go my way rejoicing! If you doubt that fact, that is your problem, not mind! I have believed that I have received the perfection for which I have asked; and I walk in that confidence, no matter what is going on. As they say: "Try it; you might like it." Yeshua continued:

26 There is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed nor hid, that shall not be known! 27 What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light! And what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops! (Matthew 10:26 and 27)

I liken the "darkness" in which Yahuah Hayah tells me things to what happens in my spirit, where obviously nothing is shining, such as the sun, which lightens everything around us, which is where He wants me to speak what He has told me.

Similarly, I believe that what Yahuah Hayah tells us is in our "inner ear", where we hear what is going on in our spirit, whether alone or with His Holy Bible before us! And that is what He has commanded us to "preach … upon the housetops" or out loud in whatever audience we find ourselves. He wants knowledge of Himself to be communicated to as many of His beloved children as possible! He wrote, through His prophet:

Hear the word of Yahuah, ye children of Israel: for Yahuah hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth nor mercy nor knowledge of God in the land. (Hosea 4:1)

How do we obtain that "knowledge"? By "the word of Yahuah"! He said, through Yeshua: "The words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life!" (John 6:63) And He wants that "spirit" and "life" for all His beloved children! Yeshua continued:

Fear not them who kill the body but are not able to kill the soul! Rather, fear Him Who is able to destroy both soul and body in Hell! (Matthew 10:28)

By the testimonies of two different witnesses who have been to Hell, I believe that the destruction of "soul and body in Hell" to which Yeshua made reference is the ineffectiveness of one who finds himself in Hell. He is powerless to do a single thing other than join in the hatefulness of those who have found themselves in a place where Yahuah Hayah's light and love are absent! It is a horrible place to be in; but it is where He puts those of us who have denied Him and the goodness of which He is the Source!

How infinitely foolish that is; yet millions of us are locked into that mindset! And I was there, for thirty years of my adult life; so do not try to tell me that such an attitude is unlikely! Yeshua continued:

29 Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? And one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father! 30 The very hairs of your head are all numbered! 31 Fear ye not, therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows. (Matthew 10:29 and 30)

That is a wonderful assurance, the pitiful part of it being that it is only accepted as real or true by those who have hearkened to the voice of Yahuah Hayah, to keep, observe, guard or put a value on the commandments of His Torah or law! He said, through Yeshua: "I am the way, the truth and the life!" (John 14:6) All others are locked into spirits and the servants of spirits who are committed to serving Satan, who "is a liar and the father of it". (John 8:44) To summarize, Yeshua said:

32 Whosoever therefore shall confess Me before men, him will I confess also before My Father Who is in Heaven! 33 But whosoever shall deny Me before men, him will I also deny before My Father Who is in Heaven! (Matthew 10:5 to 33)

The longer one walks as a servant of Yahuah Hayah, the Creator of all, the king over it and the giver of the breath of life to all of us, His beloved children, the clearer it becomes that no Mr. Inbetween exists with Him. One is either for Him or against Him, either confessing Him or denying Him; and to deny Yeshua and Whom He revealed Himself to be is, in no uncertain terms, to court disaster!

No middle ground exists, with Yahuah Hayah! If you are "lukewarm" (Revelation 3:16), He will not only "spew you" out of His "mouth" (Verse 16), He will relegate you to the abyss where He puts all who fail to love Him out of a grateful heart, which includes loving His "Word" (John 1:1) and "only begotten Son'! (John 3:16) He and Yeshua have done Their part; and it remains for Yahuah's child to do his part; and we either do it or He puts us where the careless and indifferent spend their eternity! It is called "Hell"; and it is where His love and light are not, which is why it is called "Hell". Yeshua continued:

34 Think not that I am come to send peace on Earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. 35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 36 And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household. 37 He who loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he who loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38 And he who taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. 39 He who findeth his life shall lose it: and he who loseth his life for My sake shall find it. (Matthew 10:34 to 39)

This is another of what Yeshua's disciples called an "hard saying"! (John 6:60) It is interesting to note that, among other things, He is a master of exaggeration! For, obviously, His purpose was to save as many of Yahuah Hayah's beloved children as He could! But He realized that in this loving process He would in fact be making enemies, as does anyone who tries to follow His teachings! And so "a sword" would follow in His steps, which would put in question the song of the angels who sang at His birth: "Glory to God in the highest, and on Earth peace, good will toward men!" (Luke 2:14)

No sooner did Yeshua voice this warning, that "a man’s foes shall be they of his own household" than did He proceed to reenforce it with statements making it abundantly clear that following Him is not for the "faint of heart"! And one of the tests that would try the strength of one's heart and show one's worthiness of Him would be whose voice a person would hearken to, Yeshua's or those of "father or mother" or of "son or daughter"!

To hold to such choices in favor of Yeshua would undoubtedly cause one to be crucified or at least persecuted; so He said, "He who taketh not his cross and followeth after Me is not worthy of Me." The failure to show such amazing dedication in an effort to "find" one's "life" would be only to "lose it', in the heart-wrenching judgment that comes upon such efforts, the only sure way to "find it" being to "lose his life" for Yeshua's sake by the sacrificial life He asks His disciples to lead!

Yeshua's ultimate form of self sacrifice was of course to lay down His life by submitting to the wicked hands of those who wanted Him dead! But He gave examples of conduct that would partake of laying down one's life, even though it would be short of dying! He said:

Love your enemies, do good to them who hate you. 28 Bless them who curse you, and pray for them who despitefully use you. 29 Unto him who smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other! And him who taketh away thy cloak forbid not to take thy coat also! 30 Give to every man who asketh of thee; and of him who taketh away thy goods ask them not again! 31 As ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise! 32 For, if ye love them who love you, what thank have ye? For sinners also love those who love them! 33 If ye do good to them who do good to you, what thank have ye? For sinners also do even the same! 34 And, if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? For sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again! 35 But love ye your enemies. Do good and lend, hoping for nothing again! And your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest! For He is kind, unto the unthankful and to the evil! 36 Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful. 37 Judge not, and ye shall not be judged! Condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned! Forgive, and ye shall be forgiven! 38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over shall men give into your bosom! For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again! (Luke 6:27 to 38)

I have been told that in learning to fly a plane one must know how to deal with its spiraling toward the ground! The tendency is to pull back on the joy stick, to try to pull out of the spiral; but that only tightens the spiral; so exactly the opposite is necessary. Pushing forward on the joy stick puts the plane in a straight path toward the ground, from which the pilot can gently pull it up into straight flight!

This is an excellent illustration of the sacrificial living that is recommended by Yahuah Hayah for all His children! The tendency is to "pull back", to refuse help where it is asked, in the fear that too much generosity will bankrupt us, both as to time and money! But, as with the spiraling plane, exactly the opposite is needed. The more help we render, the more blessed we get; and our life smooths out into a path we can manage well!

The same is true in our reacting to abuse! Returning violence for violence only escalates the situation and makes it much worse, whereas returning good for evil smooths out the situation making it manageable and correctable, which is what Yahuah Hayah wants for His beloved children!

Each night, I eat my supper on a couch in our living room, where my wife lives and spends most of her time watching television! So I get an eyeful of the programming sponsored by the companies of the world, which cater to the appetites of television viewers countrywide! And the programming is full of violence, the remedy for virtually every abusive situation being shown as shooting or hitting back at the abuser, which of course is the last thing that Yahuah Hayah would have His beloved children doing!

Yeshua's statements about how to react to one's neighbors, their needs and their behavior are quite clear, requiring that one set aside his own "life" in loving consideration for the lives of those around him, accommodating each neighbor as best he can, when the neighbor asks for it; and turning the other cheek when the neighbor has struck us.

Whether the neighbor is well liked or full of enmity makes no difference, in Yahuah Hayah's economy; the neighbor is one of His beloved children; and Yeshua will be saying: "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these, My brethren, ye have done it unto Me!" (Matthew 25:40) Yeshua then continued:

40 He who receiveth you receiveth Me! And he who receiveth me receiveth Him Who sent Me. 41 He who receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward! He who receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward! 42 And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward! (Matthew 10:40 to 42)

Yeshua was an authority on how His Father thinks and acts! And He has given us the benefit of that wisdom. Paul wrote, of God:

Of Him are ye in Christ Jesus, Who of God is made unto us wisdom! (1st Corinthians 1:30)

Yahuah Hayah wrote, through Solomon:

Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding! (Proverbs 4:7)

So we are well advised to pay attention to what Yeshua taught; and that is exactly what we are doing in this study! Alleluia! And I dare say we are working diligently to “get understanding”, while we are at it. Matthew's account continued:

When John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples, 3 who said, unto Him, Art Thou He Who should come, or do we look for another? 4 Jesus answered and said, unto them, Go and show John those things that ye do hear and see: 5 The blind receive their sight; the lame walk; the lepers are cleansed; the deaf hear; the dead are raised up; and the poor have the gospel preached to them. 6 And blessed is he, who is not offended in Me. (Matthew 11:2 to 6)

John the Baptist was well loved, by Yahuah Hayah; so Matthew wrote of Yeshua's honoring him:

7 Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind? 8 What went ye out to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? Behold, they who wear soft clothing are in kings' houses. 9 What went ye out to see? A prophet? Yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet. 10 For this is he of whom it is written, Behold, I send My messenger before Thy face, who shall prepare Thy way before Thee. 11 Verily, I say, unto you, Among them who are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he who is least in the kingdom of Heaven is greater than he. (Matthew 11:7 to 11)

What Yeshua said about John's being greater than all "who are born of women" is remarkable enough; but, when He added to that remarkable statement the astounding one that "he who is least in the kingdom of Heaven is greater than" John, He leaves one speechless! Needless to say, that puts a premium on entering "into the kingdom of Heaven"! (Matthew 5:20) And that premium surpasses understanding! So how does one “enter into the kingdom of Heaven”?

Yahuah Hayah said, through Yeshua, through Moses: "It shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before Yahuah, our God!" (Deuteronomy 6:25) And Yeshua made it clear that one must have "righteousness" to "enter into the kingdom of Heaven'. (Matthew 5:20) So observing to do the commandments of Yahuah's Torah is how one makes that entrance!

Please take note that the word translated "observe" means to "guard" (Strong: Hebrew: 8104) keep or put a value on; so one's performance in doing "all these commandments before Yahuah" is not His primary concern! It is one's attitude toward the doing. Having created us, He knew we would never do His commandments perfectly; He deals with that by His judgments, which "are true and righteous, altogether"! (Psalm 19:9) But how He deals with our regard for doing the commandments of His Torah relates to his accepting or barring His children from His kingdom in Heaven, which He reserves for those who love Him with hearts full of gratitude for the life He has given them in the midst of His awesome creation, providing Hell for those whose hearts have somehow turned to stone against Him.

Even that eventuality has not completely stymied Yahuah Hayah; He wrote, through His prophet: "I will take the stony heart out of their flesh and will give them an heart of flesh!" (Ezekiel 11:19) Howard Storm wrote:

The prime characteristic that allows us to know something about God is love. Love is to care intensely about something. We say we love chocolate, fishing, history, a person, cars, gardening, flying, sewing, music, and so on. The passion we experience is sharing in God's passion for everything. Our love is from God. When we love, we experience God. God loves everything passionately. My Descent into Death - a Second Chance at Life, Doubleday; Paragraph 218 of Howard Storm's Gospel, my excerpt from his book.

Yeshua continued His discourse on John:

12 From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of Heaven suffereth violence! And the violent take it by force! 13 For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. 14 And, if ye will receive it, this is Elijah, who was to come! 15 He that hath ears to hear, let him hear! (Matthew 11:12 to 15)

What Yeshua meant by "the kingdom of Heaven suffereth violence" has always been difficult for me to understand, unless I allow that He regarded the response of His children to John the Baptist's teaching to be "violent" in the best possible sense! In other words, in other words, whipped by John's preaching into a frenzy of desire to "enter into the kingdom of Heaven"!

John apparently had a way of preaching that made people want to enter Yahuah Hayah's kingdom so passionately that they took it "by force'! As for John's being "Elijah", Yeshua's reference to Elijah's coming is based upon Yahuah Hayah's word through His prophet:

Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet, before the coming of the great and dreadful Day of Yahuah! 6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the Earth with a curse! (Malachi 4:5)

We have not yet witnessed Yeshua's coming with a sword in His mouth "that with it He should smite the nations"! (Revelation 19:15) But that ushers in "the coming of the great and dreadful Day of Yahuah", before which Yeshua "shall rule them with a rod of iron", treading "the wine press of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God"! (Verse 15) And, with John the Baptist's being regarded by Yeshua as the "Elijah who was to come", that coming was indeed "before ... the great and dreadful Day of Yahuah", like two thousand years before. In the midst of His giving John the Baptist His glowing regard, Yeshua then addressed the generation of children to whom Yahuah Hayah had sent Him:

16 Whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like unto children sitting in the markets, calling unto their fellows 17 and saying, We have piped, unto you; and ye have not danced! We have mourned, unto you; and ye have not lamented! 18 For John came neither eating nor drinking; and they say, He hath a devil! 19 The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners! But wisdom is justified of her children! (Matthew 11:16 to 19)

Having described all that lamentable and deaf-eared misconduct by "this generation", Yeshua concludes with His authoritative summation: "Wisdom is justified of her children!". Yeshua "is made, unto us, wisdom"! (1st Corinthians 1:30) So, if we are wise by our receiving of His words of wisdom, we behave in a way that justifies wisdom or shows its superior effectiveness to fulfill Yahuah Hayah's marvelous will for us.

Strong's Definition of the word translated "wisdom" is, simply, "wisdom"! (Greek: 4678) So that is no help to us in trying to understand it; so I went to my online Merriam-Webster Dictionary and got this precise and helpful definition: The “ability to discern inner qualities and relationships”! And to me that is meaningful!

In other words, "wisdom" is the ability to see what is not immediately evident on the surface of things by seeing how a number things relate to each other; and that is the skill of one who has experienced many things and noticed carefully how they affect one another. It is why gray hair is associated with wisdom; and it is the unique understanding of Yahuah Hayah, Who has created all things and determined how they relate to each other.

So, if you want wisdom, we are doing, right here and now, exactly the wise thing, which is to go to the Source of things and of their relationships and let Him tell us about them. Yeshua continued, in Matthew's excellent recording of all this:

Then began He to upbraid the cities wherein most of His mighty works were done, because they repented not! 21 Woe unto thee, Chorazin! Woe unto thee, Bethsaida! For, if the mighty works that were done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago, in sackcloth and ashes! 22 But I say, unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon, at the Day of Judgment, than for you! 23 And thou, Capernaum, who art exalted unto Heaven, shalt be brought down to Hell! For, if the mighty works that have been done in thee had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day! 24 But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom, in the Day of Judgment, than for thee! (Matthew 11:20 to 24)

"The Day of Judgment" is described in the vision that Yahuah Hayah gave through Yeshua to His faithful apostle John! But He wrote first of interesting events that will precede "the Day of Judgment":

1 I saw an angel come down from Heaven, having the key of the Bottomless Pit and a great chain in his hand. 2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him a thousand years 3 and cast him into the Bottomless Pit and shut him up and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the Thousand Years should be fulfilled! After that he must be loosed a little season! (Revelation 20:1 to 3)

"The Thousand Years" is the period of time during which "the saints" among Yahuah Hayah's children will reign with Yeshua over the children of Yahuah's who have failed to love Him and keep the commandments of His Torah, as have the "saints'! He promised, through Yeshua, through John, concerning them:

26 He who overcometh and keepeth My works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations! 27 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron! As the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of My Father! (Revelation 2:26 and 27)

9 They sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book and to open the seals thereof: for Thou wast slain and hast redeemed us, to God, by Thy blood, out of every kindred, tongue, people and nation, 10 and hast made us, unto our God, kings and priests! And we shall reign on the Earth! (Revelation 5:9 and 10)

The "saints" will wear white robes; and of Yeshua and the saints, John wrote:

Let us be glad and rejoice and give honor to Him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. 8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints! (Revelation 19:7 and 8)

13 His name is called The Word of God! 14 And the armies who were in Heaven followed Him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean! (Revelation 19:13 and 14)

With the "fine linen, clean and white" denoting "the righteousness of saints', we must never forget what Yahuah Hayah wrote, through Yeshua, through Moses: "It shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before Yahuah, our God!" (Deuteronomy 6:25) And "observe" means to keep, guard or put a value on whatever one is observing! (Strong; Hebrew: 8104; Greek: 5083) So the white robe will show that the one wearing it has indeed observed "to do all these commandments”! John wrote more about "the thousand years":

4 I saw the souls of them who were beheaded for the witness of Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads or in their hands! And they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the First Resurrection! (Revelation 20:4 and 5)

John's statement "this is the First Resurrection" helps us to realize that a resurrection will be involved with the saints whom he saw in his vision, who "lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years", all of this being what he saw of a future time that we have not yet seen! And we can readily see that Yeshua spoke of this resurrection, by saying:

28 The hour is coming, in which all who are in the graves shall hear His voice 29 and shall come forth; they who have done good, unto the Resurrection of Life; and they who have done evil, unto the Resurrection of Damnation! (John 5:28 and 29)

So two resurrections are due at some time; and that time has been prophesied by Yahuah Hayah through Yeshua through His faithful apostle John, the First Resurrection's being that "of Life" in behalf of those who "lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years" - more correctly "who will live and reign with Christ a thousand years"; and I dare say that resurrection will include far more than those "who were beheaded for the witness of Jesus", its being for all "who will live and reign with Christ a thousand years"; and that includes all "who have done good"; and that includes you and me, right?

"The Day of Judgment" (Matthew 11:24) is Yahuah Hayah's time of final judgment on His beloved children; He will have reached the end of His patience, by then; what His beloved children will have chosen to do about Him will have been made abundantly clear! So Yahuah Hayah wrote, through Yeshua, through John:

11 I saw a great white throne and Him Who sat on it, from Whose face the Earth and the Heaven fled away! And there was found no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God! And the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the Book of Life! And the dead were judged out of those things that were written in the books, according to their works! 13 The sea gave up the dead who were in it; and Death and Hell delivered up the dead who were in them! They were judged, every man according to his works! 14 And Death and Hell were cast into the Lake of Fire. This is the Second Death. 15 Whosoever was not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the Lake of Fire!(Revelation 20:11 to 15)

As judgment goes, that is about as "final" as it can get! And I certainly want to be on the right side of that judgment. Don't you?

I have the testimony of Richard Eby, to whom Yahuah Hayah gave through Yeshua a dress rehearsal of His "Great White Throne" Judgment; Brother Richard wrote that

he found himself "before the Great White Throne, in awful terror! Then Jesus again spoke to my Mind:" (Page 95 - Paragraph 377)

378. "As an unsaved sinner, you are now before the Judgment Throne; you will witness 'the wages of sin'! Watch and listen closely!" (Page 95 - Paragraph 378)

" 'Jesus, I must see God's Eyes! Yours were so full of Love, in Lazarus's Tomb! His must be glorious!'

If you like my kind of study, may I recommend our website, "enterhiscovenant.com", which, first of all, contains an invitation to phone or email requests for prayer, to which I or someone will respond, as we are able! Our website is full of stored sermons offering guidance through Yahuah Hayah's word on every topic imaginable! And the visitor is not obliged to sit and listen to my choice of topic; rather, through our topical index, "Convocations by Topics", he can go to any sermon that interests him and see what Yahuah has to say about the topic of the visitor's choice!

When people recite things to me, a lot of it goes by me without my being able to hear it or process it; so I like the written report, which sits before me so long as I need it before going on to the next idea, especially when I would like to take notes from it; and our website does exactly that, for your careful consideration!

You might wonder how this ministry manages to function in a world where a price is demanded for virtually everything that one needs! Faith Harvest Israel is a faith-based ministry, which relies entirely on the tithes and offerings of people like you, who appreciate what we are doing and make themselves a part of the ministry through their tithes and offerings! If you are one of those people whom Yahuah Hayah has led to be a part of this ministry, address your check or money order to "enterhiscovenant.com" and send it to 18627 Brookhurst St. 557, Fountain Valley, California 92708; and Yahuah will bless you for it.

Let us pray: Our heavenly Father, I thank you for this enlightening time you have given all of us together. I pray that it has been helpful to all who have watched this wonderful live video; and I pray that you bless all of them richly throughout the coming week, for the hunger in their hearts that prompted them to hear Your words! I know that each and every one of these children of Yours is precious to you and that you love him or her passionately! So it has been a great privilege to help you reach out to them and give them Your spirit and life through the words that we have spoken! Thank you for that fulfillment; all the praise and the glory for it be to you; blessed by your precious and holy name! Amen!

Amen! Alleluia!
