Thoughts for the Sabbath of
2014 July 19

First Principle of Creation

(Please note: This sermon can be directly accessed on the Internet at http://www.enterhiscovenant.com/Sabbath20140719.htm)

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, I believe Yahuah has shown me His first principle of creation! Another way of saying that is: He has shown me the most important thing about His way of creating!

When Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) created Adam and Eve, He gave them a "dominion ... over every living thing that moveth upon the Earth"! (Genesis 1:28) Then, when He sent Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ), His beloved "Word" (John 1:1) and "only begotten Son" (John 3:16) into the world to walk among and teach His children, He explained, to them, through Yeshua how that dominion works! He said:

22 Have faith in God! 23 Whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea, and shall not doubt in his heart but shall believe that those things that he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith! 24 What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them (Mark 11:22 to 24)

I believe that in His explaining the dominion that He gave to mankind, Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) was explaining how He created all things! He said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ): "Let there be light! And there was light." (Genesis 1:3)

Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) Himself referred to that process in better detail, saying:

13 When He, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth! For He shall not speak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak! And He will show you things to come! 14 He shall glorify Me: for He shall receive, of Mine, and shall show it unto you. 15 All things that the Father hath are Mine: therefore said I, that He [the Spirit of truth] shall take of Mine and shall show it unto you! (John 16:13 to 15)

"When He, the Spirit of truth, is come" is more accurately stated: "When He, Yahuah Hayah's Spirit of truth, has been given permission to show Himself more strongly"! He could not "come"; for He was already there! We cannot breathe or creation cannot hold together without His ongoing power showing itself every moment of every day! So how could He "come"?

When Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) gave His children their "dominion" (Genesis 1:28), it was useless to them; for they did not understand what a powerful privilege He had given them in it; and, even after Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) gave His explanation of how to use it, only a few of His children got the point! And I am writing this sermon to help the members of our fellowship "get it" as they never before have "gotten" or understood anything!

Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s "first principle" or way of creating anything has been and will ever be to believe in what He has said! He said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ): "This is the work of God, that ye believe on Him Whom He hath sent!" (John 6:29)

When Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) said through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) "Let there by light" (Genesis 1:3), if He had not believed "that those things that he saith shall come to pass" (Mark 11:23), the "light" for which He had spoken would never have been seen! For ha Kodesh Ruach, His Holy Spirit, only takes seriously what the speaker is taking seriously.

That is why Luke referred to "God, Who knoweth the hearts"! (Acts 15:8) He has to know our hearts, to know how to respond to what is in them, the mere repeating of things we have been told or the passionate joyful confidence in the power of our dominion that gets the results His children beheld when Yeshua ha Mawshiyach showed them how it works by His amazing activities!

Our dominion was there; and Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) knew it was there; but few of us knew any such thing! And that pitiful state of affairs in our hearts remains to this day! And we wonder why everything gets completely out of hand seemingly with no remedy in sight!

When Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) said, to Abraham, "Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield and thy exceedingly great reward" (Genesis 15:1), if Abraham had not believed that was so and used His own dominion to come into agreement with that "word of God", it would not and could not have become a reality for him; and, finding that willingness on Yahuah's part to be a child's shield and reward expressed in His Holy Bible, if we, also, do not believe it is so and, using our own dominion, come into agreement with that "word of God", it will not and cannot be effective in our behalf!

Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) said: "He who believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto My Father!" (John 14:12) And what is the essential requirement in that statement of possibility? Our believing Him! Right?

There it is again - that critical element of faith, without which no creation would exist, we would not be here and untold millions of us flounder in the madhouse of things going wrong, for which we have no remedy; because we have never believed Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ), Whose "voice" (Deuteronomy 28:1) is that of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) - the one to which we are to "hearken ... to observe to do all His commandments" (Verse 1) so that "all these blessings shall come on thee and overtake thee". (Verse 2)

The spirit that comes against that critical faith is frightful, until somehow each one of us learns that Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s Spirit is infinitely more powerful and that He is ready and waiting to accommodate anyone who speaks to his problem, does not doubt in his heart and believes that what he has said will come to pass! In fact, we learn, in the last verse of Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ)'s explanation (Mark 11:24) that we are to believe it has already come to pass: He has put, into His Spirit the answer for which we have prayed!

Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s angel said, to Daniel: "At the beginning of thy supplications the commandment came forth! And I am come to show thee; for thou art greatly beloved!" (Daniel 9:23)

Indeed, we are "without excuse"! (Romans 1:20) "For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead!" (Verse 20)

All these things are in place! We have only to listen to Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s words through Moses and Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) to know what to do with them.

At the same time, so, also, is "Satan" , our enemy "the Devil" (1st Peter 5:8) in place "seeking whom he may devour" (1st Peter 5:8) with the words of falsehood by which to steer us away from Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s words through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) of "spirit" and "life"! (John 6:63)

You must know these things and with them take the measures He has enabled you to take to "save yourselves from this untoward generation"! (Acts 2:40) He wrote, through His prophet:

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge! Because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to Me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children! (Hosea 4:6)

I desired mercy and not sacrifice and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings! (Hosea 6:6)

Those are Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s priorities; what are yours?

If Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s priorities are not yours, as well, all the prayers on your behalf on the part of others can have little effect, except to obligate Him to move Heaven and Earth to get you to take Him and His words seriously! And, sometimes, He must let His child experience the frightful results of unbelief, until in desperation that child is ready to pray (and mean it): "Lead us not into temptation! But deliver us from evil!" (Matthew 6:13)

The saying exists: "God has no grandchildren!" In other words, one cannot ride someone else's coattails into Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s kingdom, even by being the son or daughter of a righteous person! One must become righteous himself, which requires that he or she understand Yahuah's requirement to obtain His righteousness, which can only be learned from His Torah or law! And that leads to all the benefits that being a child of God secures for him or her!

Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) wrote, through His faithful apostle, of Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ): "To them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them who believe on His name!" (John 1:12)

There it is again - that element of belief, from which anyone wanting Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s "life" and "blessing" cannot avoid! He must "choose life"! (Deuteronomy 30:19) And one cannot choose that in which he does not believe or on which he does not put value!

So there it is, dear friends! I rejoice for the day you have taken this truth and run with it for all it is worth! And it is worth an eternity with Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) Himself, with Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) and with many who have been near and dear to you. All those who have returned from that realm joyfully attest to its truth! Yahuah has done His part; it remains for us to do ours!

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 creation by which to appreciate the fact that You are worthy to be believed!

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 instant availability of Your remedy for anything whatsoever in all creation that they need or want!

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.
