Thoughts for the Sabbath of
2014 September 13

Seed of the Woman

(Please note: This sermon can be directly accessed on the Internet at http://www.enterHiscovenant.com/Sabbath20140913.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, the 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, a verse in the book of Genesis, where Yahuah is speaking to "the Serpent" (Genesis 3:14), who had tempted Eve to eat the forbidden fruit, makes a strange reference both to her seed and to that of the Serpent! Yahuah wrote, through His recorder:

I will put enmity between thee and the woman and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel! (Genesis 3:15)

You have read the only reference in Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s Holy Bible to the "seed" of a woman! In the bible "seed" usually relates to the man's contribution to the conception of a child; Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) said, to Abraham: "In thy seed shall all the nations of the Earth be blessed!" (Genesis 22:18)

When Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) chose the virgin Mary to bear Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) into the world, "the angel Gabriel was sent from God" (Luke 1:26), who said to her:

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! And the Lord God shall give, unto Him, the throne of His father David! 33 He shall reign, over the house of Jacob, for ever! And of His kingdom there shall be no end! (Luke 1:31 to 33)

34 Then said Mary, unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? 35 And the angel answered and said, unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore that holy child Who shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God! (Luke 1:34 and 35)

So "the seed of the woman" must relate to the only conception of a child that Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) caused in a woman that did not involve the "seed" of a man! He accomplished that miracle through His "Holy Ghost" or Spirit, Who apparently supplied His "seed" for the conception of Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ), which is why He "shall be called the Son of God"! Does anyone doubt that Yahuah, the Creator of all and the King over it, could create in Mary a human body for Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ)?

On two occasions, then, Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) confirmed this relationship between Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) and Himself: At Yeshua's baptism, Yahuah said: "This is My beloved Son, in Whom I am well pleased!" (Matthew 3:17) Then, when Yeshua "1 taketh Peter, James and John, his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart 2 and was transfigured, before them, and His face did shine, as the sun, and His raiment was white as the light" (Matthew 17:1 and 2), Yahuah said: "This is My beloved Son, in Whom I am well pleased! Hear ye Him!" (Verse 5)

The reason why Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ)'s disciples were well advised to "hear ... Him" goes back to what Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) said through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) through Moses in His Torah:

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)

When He did come, Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) said: "49 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! 50 And I know that His commandment is life everlasting!" (John 12:49 and 50)

This saying hearkens back to when Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) said through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) through Moses that His "blessings" (Deuteronomy 28:2) were for those who "shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of Yahuah, thy God, to observe and to do all His commandments"! (Verse 1)

Having made that truth known, Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) then said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ), through Moses: "I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing! Therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live!" (Deuteronomy 30:19) and "46 Set your hearts, unto all the words that I testify among you this day, which ye shall command your children to observe to do, all the words of this law! 47 For it is not a vain thing for you; because it is your life!" (Deuteronomy 32:46 and 47)

Then, when He had sent Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) to Earth, Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) clarified, through Him: "If thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments!" (Matthew 19:17) He was talking about "eternal life". (Verse 16)

So now we can appreciate better why Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) said: "I know that His [the Father's] commandment is life everlasting!" and why He said: "God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life!" (John 3:16)

Indeed, the "seed" (Genesis 3:15) of the "woman" (Verse 15) would bruise Satan's "head" (Verse 15), in that Satan's whole motivation is to "to steal, to kill and to destroy" (John 10:10), while, like any good Father, Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) sent Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) "that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly"! (Verse 10)

Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) offered that "life", to Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s children, in three ways: 1) He taught them an higher understanding of Yahuah's Torah, so that they could keep it more effectively 2) He solemnized, with His own blood, the opportunity for them to come into a "new covenant" (Jeremiah 31:31) relationship with Yahuah and 3) He purged, with that same blood, their "conscience from dead works to serve the living God"! (Hebrews 9:14)

For every truth revealed by Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) to His children, Satan has his counterfeit version of it, calculated to create misunderstanding, so as to rob them of the benefit derived from following Yahuah's truth; He wrote, through His psalmist:

Thy law is the truth (Psalm 119:142); and

all Thy commandments are truth. (Psalm 119:151)

Although we can well follow Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s commandments by hearkening to His voice in our spirits, so many other voices are there, as well, bidding for attention, that Yahuah knew the importance of setting down His commandments for our reference, in case there is any doubt as to whose voice is speaking what "truth"! And, as with His creation, His "law is perfect, converting the soul"! (Psalm 19:7)

In fact Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s Torah or law is so perfect that He commanded, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ), through Moses: "Ye shall not add unto the word that I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of Yahuah, your God!" (Deuteronomy 4:2)

A law has no effect, unless people put a value on it; so keeping, observing, guarding or putting a value on the commandments of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s Torah is what His covenant is about; He wrote, through His psalmist, of His covenant:

8 He hath remembered His covenant for ever, the word that He commanded to a thousand generations, 9 which covenant He made with Abraham and His oath unto Isaac 10 and confirmed the same, unto Jacob, for a law, and to Israel, for an everlasting covenant! (Psalm 105:8 to 10)

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 wisdom through Yeshua ha Mawshiyach, to "kiss" Him or to love Him, doing what they can to please Him.

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 blessings of trusting Your only begotten Son!

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.
