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!

When we last were moving through Matthew's Gospel, here is where we left off, with a fascinating incident as recorded by Matthew:

While He yet talked to the people, behold, His mother and His brethren stood without, desiring to speak with Him. 47 Then one said, unto Him, Behold, Thy mother and Thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee. 48 But He answered and said unto him who told Him, Who is My mother? And who are My brethren? 49 And He stretched forth His hand toward His disciples, saying, Behold My mother and My brethren! 50 For whosoever shall do the will of My Father Who is in Heaven, the same is My brother, sister and mother! (Matthew 12:46 to 50)

In another place, Yeshua said:

Not every one who saith unto Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of Heaven but he who doeth the will of My Father Who is in Heaven! 22 Many will say, to Me, in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Thy name? and in Thy name have cast out devils? and in Thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess, unto them, I never knew you: depart, from Me, ye who work iniquity! (Matthew 7:21 to 23)

Doing the will of Yeshua's "Father Who is in Heaven" is a high priority in anyone's life; so where do we learn of that will? Yahuah said, through Yeshua, through Moses:

1 If thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of Yahuah, thy God, to observe to do all His commandments ... Yahuah, thy God, will set thee on high above all nations of the Earth! 2 And all these blessings shall come, on thee, and overtake thee. (Deuteronomy 28:1 and 2)

The fact that Yahuah Hayah's requirement to obtain His blessings is to "hearken" to His "voice ... to observe to do all His commandments" has always been significant to me, which establishes that He has put His voice where we can hear it, which is in our spirit, and that through His voice He will always "guide you into all truth" (John 16:13); His "law is truth" (Psalm 119:142); and He "is truth" (John 14:6), which makes His Torah or law the expression of what He is, let alone what His "will" is, all of which is "the knowledge of God" (Hosea 6:6) or of Himself that He has put into the spirit of each child of His.

For this reason Paul wrote: "That which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shown it unto them" (Romans 1:19), which is why Yeshua referred to "these little ones who believe in Me"! (Matthew 18:6) Yahuah Hayah wrote, through His psalmist:

9 Thou art He Who took me out of the womb! Thou didst make me hope, when I was upon my mother’s breasts! 10 I was cast upon thee from the womb! Thou art my God from my mother’s belly! (Psalm 22:9 and 10)

The only reason we become "sinners" (Matthew 9:13) is because the thoughts of devils or the words of people come along to "offend" (Matthew 18:6) us or "entice" us "to sin'! (Strong: Greek: 4624) And we are soon obliged to learn the difference between such thoughts or words and those of Yahuah Hayah through Yeshua, His "Word" (John 1:1), Who together are our Creator and King! Matthew wrote:

1 The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea side. 2 And great multitudes were gathered together, unto Him, so that He went into a ship and sat! And the whole multitude stood on the shore! 3 And He spake many things unto them, in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow! 4 And, when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them. 5 Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of Earth! 6 And, when the sun was up, they were scorched! And, because they had no root, they withered away! 7 Some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up and choked them: 8 But other fell into good ground and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold. 9 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear! (Matthew 13:1 to 9)

18 Hear ye, therefore, the parable of the sower! 19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he who received seed by the way side. 20 But he who received the seed into stony places, the same is he who heareth the word and with joy receiveth it; 21 Yet, because he hath not root in himself, he dureth but for a while! And, when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended! 22 He who received seed among the thorns is he who heareth the word; but the care of this world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful! 23 But he who received seed into the good ground is he who heareth the word and understandeth it, who also beareth fruit and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty! (Matthew 13:18 to 23)

So "understanding" Yahuah Hayah's word is vital to its bearing the fruit that He would have it bear in the lives of His beloved children! And that is why I love to teach as I do, explaining His words as best I can in the hope that His children can understand them and get the benefit of them that He has always intended!

But a terrible resistance to understanding Yahuah Hayah's word is in the world, which has been put there by Satan, whom Yeshua said is "a liar, and the father of it" (John 8:44); and John wrote of "that old serpent, called the Devil and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world"! (Revelation 12:9)

I am sure you have heard of the "disinformation" that is spread about by an enemy to confuse and defeat those who are trying to defend themselves; and this is specially true of Yahuah Hayah's enemy, Satan, who knows that Yahuah's word is the source of creation and the way in which He continues to manage it by the power of His words to direct ha Kodesh Ruach, His Holy Spirit, to do what He and we want Him to do.

Paul wrote: "Be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed, by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God!" (Romans 12:2)

To be "conformed to this world" is to think like people in the world think, who have been terribly deceived and confused by Satan, while being "transformed, by the renewing of your mind" is the cleaning of our thoughts from all that is contrary to Yahuah Hayah's "ways" by our hearing of His words! He wrote, through Yeshua, through Moses:

Yahuah shall establish thee an holy people unto Himself, as He hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep [or put a value on] His commandments and walk in His ways! (Deuteronomy 28:9)

"The children of Israel" (Deuteronomy 29:1) were well favored, in that from childhood they were taught the commandments of Yahuah Hayah's Torah! (Deuteronomy 32:46) Whether they kept or put a value on them was another matter! And the results were not always encouraging! Yeshua addressed that problem, in the chapter of Matthew at which we are looking, when

10 the disciples came and said, unto Him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? 11 He and said, unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of Heaven! But to them it is not given. 12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given! And he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath! 13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because, seeing, they see not! And, hearing they hear not, neither do they understand! 14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah, which saith, By hearing, ye shall hear and shall not understand! And, seeing ye shall see and shall not perceive! 15 For this people's heart is waxed gross! Their ears are dull of hearing! And their eyes they have closed! lest at any time they should see, with their eyes, and hear, with their ears, and should understand with their heart and should be converted, and I should heal them. 16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see! And your ears, for they hear! 17 For verily I say, unto you, that many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things that ye see, and have not seen them, and to hear those things that ye hear and have not heard them. (Matthew 13:10 to 17)

This is an extremely rich and important passage; and we should pay careful attention to it; so, as I usually do, I am going to take it line-by-line!

When Yeshua's disciples asked Him: "Why speakest Thou, unto them, in parables?" He replied: "Because it is given, unto you, to know the mysteries of the kingdom of Heaven! But to them it is not given." That immediately gives rise to the question of why that was so; but Yeshua's next words, although true, speak a riddle that is not easily perceived:

For whosoever hath, to him shall be given! And he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath!

What is it that one is supposed to have, so that "more abundance" shall be his? Yahuah Hayah is reminding me of the pureness and simplicity of heart of "these little ones who believe in Me" (Matthew 18:6) , Yeshua said; and I believe that such children are indeed so favored! In fact, Yeshua said as much, when He "2 called a little child, unto Him, and set him in the midst of them, 3 and said, Verily I say, unto you, Except ye be converted and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of Heaven! 4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of Heaven! 5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in My name receiveth Me!" (Verses 2 to 5)

Then we have the other side of the picture painted by Yeshua, when He said: "Whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath!"

When brought into the world, each of us is usually blessed with the basic skills of living - eyes that see, ears that hear and spirits that interpret what we see or hear, so that we can make our way in the world! And should the occasion arise, those innocent eyes, ears and spirits can also make their way into the kingdom of Yahuah Hayah, our Creator, which would be the "more abundance" of which Yeshua spoke, for those who "have" to whom "more shall be given"!

But, if and when the innocent child is "offended" (Matthew 18:6) or "enticed to sin" (Strong: Greek: 4624), the child so affected has lost his innocence and therefore "hath not"; and again should the occasion arise - and it will sooner or later - that the child dies, what he had left of his skills of living while sinning will be removed from him; and his experience in Hell will be a horror of helplessness devoid of any of the pleasures he knew in the world even while sinning!

With this basic matter of a child's innocence and openness to Yahuah Hayah's truth or the offended child and his twisted notions that resist Yahuah's truth having been alluded to in Yeshua's statement about "having" or "having not", He then focuses on the plight of those who have lost their innocence:

13 Therefore speak I, to them, in parables! Because, seeing, they see not! And, hearing they hear not, neither do they understand! 14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah, which saith, By hearing, ye shall hear and shall not understand! And, seeing ye shall see and shall not perceive! 15 For this people’s heart is waxed gross! Their ears are dull of hearing! And their eyes they have closed! lest at any time they should see, with their eyes, and hear, with their ears, and should understand with their heart and should be converted, and I should heal them. (Matthew 13:13 to 15)

Yeshua speaks, here, of the terrible preference for blindness and deafness to Yahuah Hayah's truth that in time can become that of an entire people, "lest at any time they should see, with their eyes, and hear, with their ears, and should understand with their heart and should be converted, and I should heal them". This saying reveals how the childlike innocence to which Yahuah's kingdom is freely accessible and the mentality of sinners that cannot enter His kingdom are inner conditions of a person's spirit that are controlled by his will or preference! "Their eyes they have closed!" And that is something that "they" do or each of us does while making our way in the world.

But what can be closed can also be opened! And Yeshua then speaks of those who for whatever reason have either kept their eyes open or have opened them later:

16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see! And your ears, for they hear! 17 For verily I say, unto you, that many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things that ye see, and have not seen them, and to hear those things that ye hear and have not heard them. (Matthew 13:16 and 17)

This generation of seeing and hearing persons were particularly "blessed"; because, obviously, they were enjoying the personal attention of Yeshua, the One Who had spoken them into existence, and Who now was guiding them into a better understanding of the things that "many prophets and righteous men have desired to see … and have not seen them".

For, as with the individual, the growth of a people is a slow progression, from knowing little to knowing much! And, although Yahuah Hayah's Torah has been the same from His first presenting it to any of His children, its being the expression of Himself, Who is eternal (Psalm 105:8 to 10), their understanding of it has been that "slow progression", which explains why "prophets and righteous men" yearned for the right understanding but were denied it for a while, until Yeshua came to "fulfill" "the law and the prophets" (Matthew 5:17) and thus bring home what they really have meant! And we are getting the benefit of that revelation right now, as we listen carefully to what He did say. Matthew continued:

24 Another parable put He forth, unto them, saying, The kingdom of Heaven is likened unto a man who sowed good seed in his field: 25 But, while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. 26 But when the blade was sprung up and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also! 27 So the servants of the householder came and said, unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? From whence then hath it tares? 28 He said, unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said, unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? 29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest! And in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn. (Matthew 13:24 to 30)

In this parable Yeshua has changed His speaking of "seed" from being His word to being people! Some are represented as the wheat, which bears a desirable grain, while some He spoke of as "tares", which is the translation of a word meaning "false grain" (Strong: Greek: 2215), which we assume are worthless in the making of the bread that wheat makes so well. And, of course, there, again, is the contrast between the righteous and the wicked, this parable being devoted to what happens to the righteous or the wicked.

"The tares" were bound "in bundles to burn them"; and the end time prophecy of Yahuah Hayah's Holy Bible speaks of His "Lake of Fire" for "whosoever was not found written in the Book of Life"! (Revelation 20:15) So how is one's name put into Yahuah Hayah's "Book of Life"?

Yahuah Hayah told Moses: "Whosoever hath sinned against Me, him will I blot out of My book." (Exodus 32:33) So what is "sin"? Yahuah wrote, through Yeshua's faithful apostle: "Sin is the transgression of the law!" (1st John 3:4) So is it any wonder that Yahuah wrote, through Yeshua, through Moses, of His Torah or law: "It is your life!" (Deuteronomy 32:47) And then, when Yahuah sent Yeshua into the world, Yeshua said: "If thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments!" (Matthew 19:17) And He was answering the question: "What good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?" (Verse 16)

"Eternal life" relates to our salvation or where we will live for the rest of eternity! So is it any surprise that the children of Yahuah Hayah who "hearken diligently unto the voice of Yahuah, thy God, to observe and to do all His commandments" (Deuteronomy 28:1) have "all these blessings ... come on thee and overtake thee"? (Verse 2) Yahuah pled, through Yeshua, through Moses: "Choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live!" (Deuteronomy 30:19)

So one wonders, whatever got into the apostle Paul to write: "Ye could not be justified by the law of Moses." (Acts 13:39)

So what happened to the wheat in Yeshua's parable?

The "householder" told his "servants": "Gather the wheat into my barn!" (Matthew 13:30) The wheat was regarded as valuable! And that was a reference to Yahuah Hayah's gathering His beloved children who love Him into His "kingdom of Heaven"! (Matthew 5:20) Obviously, those who love Him try to please Him by observing "to do all these commandments before Yahuah, our God" (Deuteronomy 6:25), which is His requirement for the "righteousness" that one must have to "enter into the kingdom of Heaven". (Matthew 5:20)

But let's not settle for my interpretation of this parable; Yeshua Himself explained it, where Matthew wrote:

36 Jesus sent the multitude away and went into the house! And His disciples came, unto Him, saying, Declare, unto us, the parable of the tares of the field! 37 He answered them, He Who soweth the good seed is the Son of man! 38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; 39 The enemy that sowed them is the Devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels! 40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. 41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend and them who do iniquity 42 and shall cast them into a furnace of fire! There shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth! 43 Then shall the righteous shine forth, as the sun, in the kingdom of their Father! Who hath ears to hear, let him hear! (Matthew 13:36 to 43)

Do you see how beautifully God's word fits together, especially in this passage, where Yeshua told so many parables? Here is another:

31 The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took and sowed in his field, 32 which indeed is the least of all seeds: but, when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof. (Matthew 13:31 and 32)

I gather, from this parable, that "the kingdom of Heaven", although seemingly "small" to us who are locked into this small physical environment, is not to be taken for granted, its having the potential of sheltering "the birds of the air", which we become, when we lose our physical bodies and must go somewhere in Yahuah Hayah's spiritual realm!

The alternative is to land in Hell, about which Yeshua warned: "If thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish and not that thy whole body should be cast into Hell!" (Matthew 5:29)

Howard Storm was "cast into Hell" and found it to be a terrible place, where Yahuah Hayah's light and love were absent, the inhabitants of it being full of hate, to where they mercilessly attacked Brother Howard. The good news is that He had the presence of mind to call out for Yeshua to save him; and He did, gloriously! You can read about that in Brother Howard's book: My Descent into Death, a Second Chance at Life! (Published by Doubleday)

Here is yet another parable that Yeshua told: "The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened!" (Matthew 13:33)

This parable relates to the wide spreading effect that Yahuah Hayah's kingdom has even upon us who yet are on Earth! And Yeshua spoke of that effect, when He said: "If I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you." (Luke 11:20)

In another place Yeshua said: "Behold, the kingdom of God is within you." (Luke 17:21) And from that statement we see the pervasive effect of Yahuah Hayah's Spirit, Whom He gives to those who keep His commandments! Yeshua said:

15 If ye love Me, keep My commandments! 16 And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you for ever, 17 even the Spirit of Truth! (John 14:15 to 17)

Matthew gives an interesting commentary about Yeshua's telling of parables:

34 All these things spake Jesus, unto the multitude, in parables! And without a parable spake He not unto them, 35 that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open My mouth in parables! I will utter things that have been kept secret from the foundation of the world! (Matthew 13:34 and 35)

And here we are, getting the benefit of such secret things; isn't this wonderful?

When Yeshua had "sent the multitude away and went into the house" (Matthew 13:36), He spoke two short parables concerning His father's kingdom, which together make up a fascinating commentary upon that kingdom:

44 Again, the kingdom of Heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field. 45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls, 46 who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.

These parables both show the value of Yahuah Hayah's kingdom; in each instance it was worth all that the finder of it had! And then Yeshua told another parable relating to Yahuah Hayah's fearful judgment!

47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind, 48 which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good, into vessels, but cast the bad away! 49 So shall it be at the end of the world! The angels shall come forth and sever the wicked, from among the just, 50 and shall cast the wicked into the furnace of fire! There shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth! (Matthew 13:44 to 50)

We have not yet seen this judgment; for testimonies such as the one that Howard Storm has given us indicate that Hell is yet a place of darkness! But John's writing of the vision he saw tells of the day when "13 Death and Hell delivered up the dead who were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works! 14 And Death and Hell were cast into the Lake of Fire. This is the Second Death"! (Revelation 20:13 and 14)

So we are encouraged by John's writing: "Blessed and holy is he who hath part in the First Resurrection: on such the Second Death hath no power! But they shall be priests, of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years!" (Revelation 20:6)

Richard Eby said, of "the Lake of Fire" that it was "the most heart-rending sight ever to be seen by unsaved rebellious creatures!" (Page 96 - Didn’t You Read My Book? Companion Press) Matthew continued:

51 Jesus said, unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They said, unto Him, Yea, Lord. 52 Then said He, unto them, Therefore every scribe who is instructed unto the kingdom of Heaven is like unto a man who is an householder, who bringeth forth, out of his treasure, things new and old. (Matthew 13:51 and 52)

"The kingdom of Heaven" has been in place so long as Yahuah Hayah's creation has been in place, the knowledge of which indeed would be "treasure" involving "old things"; but His children's knowledge of it has had to grow along with them, which indeed has involved "treasure" involving "new things" that they have learned about it. Matthew continued:

53 it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these parables, He departed thence. 54 And, when He was come into His own country, He taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom and these mighty works? 55 Is not this the carpenter's son? Is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, Joses, Simon and Judas? 56 And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence, then, hath this man all these things? 57 And they were offended, in Him. But Jesus said, unto them, A prophet is not without honor, save in his own country and in his own house! 58 And He did not many mighty works there, because of their unbelief! (Matthew 13:53 to 58)

Yahuah Hayah wrote, through His prophet:

He hath no form nor comeliness! And, when we shall see Him, there is no beauty that we should desire Him. 3 He is despised and rejected of men - a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief! And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised; and we esteemed Him not! (Isaiah 53:2 and 3)

Yet Yeshua is, to this day, the Person of the Godhead Who spoke Yahuah's creation into existence! Yahuah Hayah wrote, through His author, of Him: "1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, 2 hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom He hath appointed Heir of all things, by Whom also He made the worlds, 3 Who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high!" (Hebrews 1:1 to 3)

Matthew then records a terribly sad story:

1 At that time Herod, the tetrarch, heard of the fame of Jesus 2 and said, unto his servants, This is John the Baptist! He is risen from the dead; and therefore mighty works do show forth themselves in him. 3 For Herod had laid hold, on John, and bound him and put him in prison, for Herodias' sake, his brother Philip's wife. 4 For John had said, unto him, It is not lawful for thee to have her. 5 And, when he would have put him to death, he feared the multitude, because they counted him as a prophet! 6 But, when Herod's birthday was kept, the daughter of Herodias danced, before them, and pleased Herod. 7 Whereupon, he promised, with an oath, to give her whatsoever she would ask! 8 And she, being before instructed of her mother, said, Give me here John the Baptist's head in a charger! 9 And the king was sorry! Nevertheless, for the oath's sake and them who sat with him at meat, he commanded it to be given her. 10 And he sent and beheaded John, in the prison! 11 And his head was brought, in a charger, and given to the damsel: and she brought it to her mother! 12 His disciples came and took up the body and buried it and went and told Jesus! (Matthew 14:1 to 12)

Such is the grievous conduct of Yahuah Hayah's children in the world, who have been "offended" (Matthew 18:6) or "enticed to sin' (Strong: Greek: 4624) and therefore lost track of their goodness in Him! Matthew then recorded one of Yeshua's major miracles:

13 Jesus ... departed, thence, by ship, into a desert place; and, when the people had heard thereof, they followed Him, on foot, out of the cities! 14 Jesus went forth and, seeing a great multitude, was moved with compassion, toward them; and He healed their sick! 15 When it was evening, His disciples came to Him, saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past! Send the multitude away, that they may go, into the villages, and buy themselves victuals! 16 But Jesus said, unto them, They need not depart; give ye them to eat. 17 And they said, unto Him, We have here but five loaves and two fishes! 18 But He said, Bring them hither, to Me! 19 And He commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass! Taking the five loaves and the two fishes and looking up to Heaven, He blessed and brake and gave the loaves, to His disciples and the disciples to the multitude! 20 And they did all eat and were filled! And they took up, of the fragments that remained, twelve baskets full. 21 And they who had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children! (Matthew 14:13 to 21)

No explanation is needed here; we are simply amazed! But what is feeding five thousand against having created all things! John wrote: "Without Him was not any thing made that was made." (John 1:3)

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!
