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 wrote, through His apostle: "Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well! The devils also believe and tremble!" (James 2:19) So what are we to make of that? Are "devils also" righteous and on their way to Heaven?
The other day, the young member of our fellowship who is going with a Jew told me, in defense of her boyfriend: "He believes in God!" But devils seem to have a problem with Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM), even though they know He is there and fear Him to the point of trembling!
Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) 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! (Matthew 7:21) So now we find that doing Yahuah Hayah's will is the difference between those who believe Him and rejoice and those who believe Him and tremble! Devils are not doing His will; and, sadly, neither are Jews! For they do not keep or put a value on all that He said through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) through Moses!
Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ), through Moses:
The Lord thy God will raise up, unto thee, a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto Me! Unto Him ye shall hearken! (Deuteronomy 18:15)
18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put My words in His mouth! And He shall speak, unto them, all that I shall command Him. 19 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto My words, which He shall speak in My name, I will require it of him. (Deuteronomy 18:18 and 19)
While Joseph was pondering over the problem of Mary's being pregnant without their having been married, "20 the angel of Yahuah appeared, unto him, in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost! 21 She shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call His name Jesus! For He shall save His people from their sins!" (Matthew 1:20 and 21)
"Jesus" is a translation of the name "Yehoshua" (Strong: Hebrew: 3091), which means "Jehovah-saved" (3091); and "Jehovah" is James Strong's translation of the Hebrew tetragrammaton "YHVH", which our fellowship pronounces "Yahuah Hayah"! His angel said that Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) would "save His people"! But His name was Yahuah Hayah-saved; so His saving anyone was in behalf of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM), the Creator of all and the King over it, Who would do the saving!
"The angel Gabriel was sent from God" (Luke 1:26) "to ... Mary" (Verse 27):
30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favor with God! 31 Behold, thou shalt conceive, in thy womb, and bring forth a Son and shalt call His name Jesus! 32 He shall be great and shall be called the Son of the Highest! The Lord God shall give, unto Him, the throne of His father David! 33He shall reign, over the house of Jacob, for ever! And of His kingdom there shall be no end! (Luke 1:30 to 33)
Of course, the Jews deny all this, some of them conceding that Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) was a prophet yet denying much of what He said, particularly about His relationship to Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)! In fact, the high priest demanded that He be crucified on the basis of His answer to the priest's demand that Yeshua "tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God"! (Matthew 26:63)
Jesus saith, unto him," Thou hast said! Nevertheless, I say, unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of Power and coming in the clouds of Heaven!" (Matthew 26:64)
Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) made numerous statements that imply His being a part of the Godhead; one of them was: "Not that any man hath seen the Father, save He Who is of God, He hath seen the Father." (John 6:46) He also said: "He Who hath seen Me hath seen the Father!" (John 14:9) That confirms Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s statement through His author that Yeshua was His "express image"! (Hebrews 1:3)
When Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) spoke of His disciples' baptizing "all nations ... in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost" (Matthew 28:19), "the name" refers to only one; and, since "the Son" was included in the three Persons embraced by that one name, that also makes, of Him, one of the Persons of the Godhead!
On one occasion Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) referred twice to His being "the only begotten Son of God" (John 3:16 and 18) and to "God" having "sent His Son into the world"! (Verse 17) He said: "The Son can do nothing of Himself but what He seeth the Father do." (John 5:19) and "I have not spoken of Myself! But the Father Who sent Me, He gave Me a commandment, what I should say and what I should speak!" (John 12:49)
Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ)'s returning from death a gloriously resurrected man certainly attested to His being special to the Father; He said, to His disciples: "Behold My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself! Handle Me and see! For a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see Me have." (Luke 24:39) and "As My Father hath sent Me, even so send I you!" (John 20:21)
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 Yeshua ha Mawshiyach by which to know Who and What He was!!
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 Yeshua ha Mawshiyach's place both in the Godhead and in 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.
