Thoughts for the Sabbath of
2014 February 8

A Wonderful Idea

(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 Hayah gave me for this Sabbath, He said, through Yeshua ha Mawshiyach: "Except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of Heaven!" (Matthew 5:20) From that statement by the Creator of all and King over it we learn that "righteousness" (Verse 20) - that is, the "righteousness" (Deuteronomy 6:25) that He offered through Yeshua through Moses in His Torah, law and "everlasting covenant" (Psalm 105:10) "with the house of Israel" (Jeremiah 31:31) - is one's key to entering His kingdom!

Lest one suppose that Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s kingdom is way off in the distant future, consider that He also said through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ): "The kingdom of God is within you" (Luke 17:21) ; it is the condition of one's heart that makes him or her a citizen of Yahuah's kingdom, with all its amazing benefits, even though one is not yet in "Heaven"! (Matthew 5:20)

In my view, that is a wonderful idea! But it becomes all the more wonderful, as one contrasts it, like a candlelight in the darkness, to Satan's bad idea, which is his counterfeit "righteousness of God without the law" (Romans 3:21), which was the "gospel" (Galatians 1:11) taught by Paul, one of Satan's "false prophets" (Matthew 24:24), as it was revealed to him by His "Jesus Christ" (Galatians 1:12) in "Arabia" (Verse 17), one of the "false Christs" (Matthew 24:24) about whom Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) warned through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ)!

The way Paul's "gospel" (Galatians 1:11) contradicts Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s words through Moses and Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) had me concerned for years! But Yahuah has now shown me why Paul's "Jesus Christ" (Verse 12) necessarily is one of the "false Christs" (Matthew 24:24) about whom Yahuah warned! For He said, through Yeshua: "When He, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth!" (John 16:13) He did not say that Yeshua in person would "guide you into all truth".

By His own word, Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) is, now, "sitting at the right hand of Power" (Matthew 26:64) or of Yahuah the Father! He said, "Not that any man hath seen the Father, save He Who is of God, He hath seen the Father." (John 6:46) This being true, He does not appear in person to His children to teach them "all truth"! He said that ha Kodesh Ruach, Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s Holy "Spirit of truth" (John 16:13) would be doing that in His absence!

So Paul's claim that he was "taught ... by the revelation of Jesus Christ" (Galatians 1:12) rather than by ha Kodesh Ruach, Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s Holy Spirit, has to be the work of a lying spirit of Satan! It is small wonder, then, that Paul referred to "the righteousness that is in the law" (Philippians 3:6) as "dung" (Verse 8), declaring, "Ye could not be justified by the law of Moses" (Acts 13:39), which makes a lie of Yahuah's words through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) through Moses, to say that "it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before Yahuah, our God"! (Deuteronomy 6:25)

So what else is so "bad" about Paul's idea of a "righteousness of God without the law"? (Romans 3:25)

Aside from the fact that it is contrary to Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s "righteousness" (Deuteronomy 6:25), Paul's idea of a "righteousness of God without the law"? (Romans 3:25) is bad because of what he based it upon, which was a "faith in His [Yeshua ha Mawshiyach's] blood", that its being shed paid a "redemption" (Romans 3:24) or "ransom in full" (Strong: Greek: 629) "for the remission of sins"! (Romans 3:25)

If the "righteousness" (Romans 3:21) of Paul's "gospel" (Galatians 1:11) were to be true, one would be forgiven not for repenting and changing his behavior for the better, which is the entire purpose of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s Torah, law and "everlasting covenant" (Psalm 105:10) "with the house of Israel" (Jeremiah 31:31), but by merely believing that Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ)'s "blood" (Romans 3:25) being shed was the reason for one's being forgiven or his "ransom" (Strong: Greek: 629) paid, which has led throughout the Christian world to the abominable lie that doing what one pleases is alright so long as he has "faith in His [Yeshua's] blood" (Verse 25) to do what Paul claimed that it does.

Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ), too, said that His blood was "shed for many for the remission of sins" (Matthew 26:28); but, when He got into speaking of the exact purpose of His going to the cross, He kept saying that it would show a truth! He said, "For their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth!" (John 17:19) When He was standing before Pilate, whom He knew would issue the order for Him to be crucified, He said, "To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth! Every one who is of the truth heareth My voice!" (John 18:37)

Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s "giving" of "His only begotten Son" was so "that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life"! (John 3:16) One believes what he or she has accepted as "truth"! And the purpose that Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) kept giving for His blood's being shed was to show a "truth"!

Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) wrote, through His psalmist: "Thy law is the truth" (Psalm 119:142); and "all Thy commandments are truth". (Verse 151) So the purpose for Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ)'s shed blood would be "to call ... sinners to repentance" (Matthew 9;13), which is why He said He "came"! (Verse 13) "Sinners" (Verse 13) sin! And Yahuah wrote, through His faithful apostle: "Sin is the transgression of the law!" (1st John 3:4)

So the "truth" (John 17:19; 18:37) that Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) sent Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) to show through the shedding of His blood was all about Yahuah's Torah, law and "everlasting covenant" (Psalm 105:10) "with the house of Israel"! (Jeremiah 31:31) And that is a wonderful idea; because the difference between hearkening to Yahuah's "voice" (Deuteronomy 28:1) or not, "to observe to do all His commandments" (Verse 1) is one's receiving or not "all these blessings" (Verse 2), which will "come on thee and overtake thee". (Verse 2)

Furthermore, to realize that Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s "voice" (Deuteronomy 28:1) has always been that of Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ), Who was "in the beginning" (John 1:1) as "the Word" (Verse 1), "Who "was with God and ... was God" (Verse 1) is to realize that believing Him whether through Moses or through the apostles who wrote of Him is to "not perish but have everlasting life"! (John 3:16) He said, "Before Abraham was, I AM" (John 8:58) Of Moses He said: "He wrote of Me!" (John 5:46) And "If thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments" (Matthew 19:17), even "eternal life"! (Verse 16)

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 not perish but have everlasting life!

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 everlasting life that has become theirs by believing Your words through Yeshua ha Mawshiyach!

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!
