Thoughts for the Sabbath of
2013 October 12

Health and Spirituality

(Please note: This sermon can be directly accessed on the Internet at

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, Creator of the universe and King over it, knows who you are; and that's all that matters!

At this point in your participation in the service, I recommend that you go to Sabbath Ritual and participate in the prayer in which we like to engage each week, as I do each morning, to avail ourselves of Yahuah Hayah's "Power of Agreement" (Matthew 18:19) for the basic things that all of us must have each day of our lives! Although repetitious and time-consuming, doing that will bless you, the fellowship and all of His children in the universe! It is what some people call "getting prayed up"!

As for the thoughts that Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) gave me for this Sabbath, what good is it to have spiritual wisdom but no physical body in which to use it for the benefit of His children?

Nothing is quite so sad as seeing a devoted servant of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) so crippled or obese that he or she can hardly function, giving the impression to others that spirituality has no bearing upon one's physical well being! Yahuah said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ), through Moses:

If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of Yahuah, thy God, and wilt do that which is right in His sight and wilt give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases upon thee that I have brought upon the Egyptians! For I am Yahuah, Who healeth thee. (Exodus 15:26)

Doing "that which is right" in Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s sight is a spiritual consideration! But, being "Yahuah, Who healeth thee", He related it, directly, to the physical well being of His children!

Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s commandment through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) through Moses reads: "Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself!" (Leviticus 19:18)

If one has failed to love himself to where he cannot function, which relates to physical needs, what is left with which to love Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) or one's neighbor, which are spiritual obligations with both spiritual and physical consequences?

In loving myself, I have been following "the Gerson Therapy", as it has been taught by the Gerson Institute (, who have been faithfully continuing the work begun by Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) through His faithful servant Maxwell Gerson some sixty years ago to restore abundant physical life to His children, so that they could fulfill His plan for their spirits!

Dr. Gerson's initial interest was in curing patients with tuberculosis; but in finding the diet, supplemental nutrition and clinical procedures that were helpful to them, he discovered that patients with a variety of degenerative diseases, also, including cancer, responded well to his therapy! So he became an highly successful specialist in treating such patients by natural, non-invasive methods, only to incur the wrath of the medical establishment, who found that the money to be made with their outrageously expensive chemical, radiation and surgical methods was being threatened by Dr. Gerson's method without them; so two times they bribed one of his nurses to poison him with arsenic, the second time successfully!

But the priceless knowledge of what Dr. Gerson had learned about maintaining health sufficiently well to overcome degenerative diseases was preserved and taught by his daughter Charlotte Gerson, who founded the Gerson institute, which now has the testimonies of hundreds of patients who have been wonderfully helped by them, in an hospital outrageously banned from the United States, to restore themselves to good health and the strength to overcome the diseases that have become increasingly prevalent in a world obsessed with sugar, salt and fat-laden diets along with increasingly corrupting their environment with toxic chemicals!

That obsession of course leads back to our spirituality or our knowledge of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) and the "blessings" (Deuteronomy 28:1) He gives to those who "hearken diligently unto the voice of Yahuah, thy God, to observe and to do all His commandments"! (Verse 1) His promise is:

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)

When He, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth! (John 16:13)

Part of "all truth" is what keeps us healthy! And that includes the diet, nutritional supplements and liver enhancing procedure that are tirelessly taught everywhere and wonderfully practiced in Mexico by the Gerson Institute!

So this fellowship has included among our ebooks "Health the Gerson Way", which is available free for download from this website! It is comprised of quotations from Charlotte Gerson's book "The Gerson Therapy" with a little language of mine by which to bridge them; but we recommend that one have, read and carefully follow Ms Gerson's book in all its amazing details, our booklet merely having been compiled to help our members remember certain of the therapy's main features!

From another source I also became aware of a therapy called "chelation", which is the use of a certain amino acid abstracted from protein, which can join with fats and minerals where they do not belong in the organs and tissues of one's body and cause them to be flushed out of his system! The benefit of that therapy is extensive, in that excess fat and toxic minerals where they do not belong is associated with virtually all of the degerative diseases known and with aging in general!

Where offered, chelation therapy is expensive! So Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) showed me that, since it is based upon one of protein's amino acids, which He has freely given His children in the foods that He has provided for them, the chelation process is natural to the functions in all of our bodies, the problem being that fat-laden diets overwhelm it to where it is no longer effective!

Once a person understands this, he can appreciate the wisdom inherent in the Gerson Therapy, which forbids foods containing high amounts of fat, which came of Dr. Gerson's observing the consistent presence of excess fat in the cells and tissues of patients suffering from degenerative diseases!

Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s promise is that He will give His "blessings" (Deuteronomy 28:2) to anyone hearing His "voice" (Verse 1) to keep His "commandments"! (Verse 1) And, interesting to me is the fact now proven by scientists that what one believes, whether he sees himself as being blessed or cursed, fulfilled or threatened, affects what his spirit does in determining the functions of his body!

What one believes is a spiritual phenomenon, which directly affects our body, which obviously is a physical phenomenon! And that well observed interrelationship demonstrates the fact of creation now increasingly being recognized by scientists that, far from the "solid particle" view of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s creation, which they previously believed, His creation is now being recognized as consisting entirely of energy, which unavoidably is interconnected wherever it is, causing one occurrence in the universe to affect all other occurrences, including what we are thinking, to where all of it is one dynamically interacting phenomenon! Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) prayed, to Yahuah:

The glory that Thou gavest Me I have given them, that they may be one, even as We are one. (John 17:20)

So "health" and "spirituality" are inseparable aspects of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s creation, both of which must be treated with the same deference or reverence for Him and His Spirit, by Whom all of these amazing functions are sustained each moment of our lives!

Finally to be mentioned is the power that Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) has given us through the use of our "dominion ... over every living thing that moveth upon the Earth" (Genesis 1:28) to heal ourselves and others, so long as we do not "tempt the Lord thy God" (Matthew 4:7), by indulging ourselves with unhealthy foods and practices while supposing that we can heal our abused bodies any time we want to.

We can heal ourselves and others in that way; but a careless attitude about maintaining that health is in violation of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s commandment that we love ourselves! (Leviticus 19:18) And, if we will not love ourselves, neither will He love us! He said, though Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ): "Give, and it shall be given unto you." (Luke 6:38) Give carelessness to life; and the life that Yahuah is will reflect that same indifference to your well being!

Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) "went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed of the Devil"! (Acts 10:38) He was rewarded for that goodness by being nailed as a capital criminal to a Roman cross of execution! Thirty-seven years later the people of Jerusalem who cried out for His blood were besieged, by the Romans, to the point of horrible starvation, their city ravaged, their temple burned to the ground and their days of walking freely in a land of their own terminated!

Hitler appeared to have renewed that judgment upon the Jews, in the horrific holacaust that he put them through; but Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) is merciful; and, when that final scourge was ended, He allowed His children to reenter their land and try their relationship with Him one more time! They still reject Yeshua ha Mawshiyach as Mawshiyakh or "Messiah"; but Yahuah said, through Yeshua,through Moses:

40 If they shall confess their iniquity and the iniquity of their fathers, with their trespass that they trespassed against Me, that also they have walked contrary unto Me 41 and that I also have walked contrary unto them and have brought them into the land of their enemies; if then their uncircumcised hearts be humbled and they then accept of the punishment of their iniquity, 42 Then will I remember My covenant with Jacob and also My covenant with Isaac! Also My covenant with Abraham will I remember; and I will remember the land! (Leviticus 26:40 to 42)

Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) wrote, through His prophet:

One shall say, unto Him, What are these wounds in Thine hands? Then He shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of My friends! (Zechariah 13:6)

I pray that this information I have given you is true in Yahuah Hayah's sight, that it can be stored in your spirit for great and beneficial use to you as the days go by and that we might hear from you now and then as you find it working its wonders in your life!

Father, by my "faith in God" (Mark 11:22), I "speak" (Mark 11:23), to Your children, and command that they be given the knowledge and understanding of Your truth by which to live healthy lifestyles that glorify you!

I rejoice (John 15:11) that You are faithful to fulfill Your children's powerful use of their "dominion ... over every living thing that moveth upon the Earth"! (Genesis 1:28) I know you answered this prayer, in ha Kodesh Ruach, Your Holy Spirit, the moment I said it; so I "believe" I "receive" (Mark 11:24), even now, a family of brothers and sisters who are rejoicing over the magnificent blessing of having the healthy bodies You require by which to fulfill Your will for their lives!

I pray that Yahuah Hayah shall bless you mightily, throughout the coming week, and that you will realize in your heart how important you are to the ministry that He has given to Faith Harvest Israel to see that His truth is learned, believed and carried out by all His children throughout the world, so many of whom are in such desperate need of it.

Amen! Alleluia!
