Yahuah Hayah's Redemption

(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 (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM'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, if your heart is behind or in agreement with what you are being guided to say, 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 dear friend of mine asked me to review a book by a misguided "brother in the Lord" whose doctrinal claims had troubled her, to which I responded by writing a book of my own, in which I addressed a number of the questionable conclusions that the author had presented in his book; and, as would be expected, that led to my introducing to my friend, a devout Christian, a conclusion that I had reached years ago, which is the fact well known to this fellowship that the apostle Paul's "gospel" (Galatians 1:11) is a lie given him by Satan!

But, after I had given my "labor of love" to my friend, Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) admonished me, for having "thrown out the baby with the bath", as the saying goes, in my sincere effort to present His truth for my friend's edification! And to correct that error, He has now led me to write this sermon, in which I pray I will be more careful to separate the precious "baby" from the dirty "bath" water that no one wants, once it has been used! He said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ):

There shall arise false Christs and false prophets, which shall show great signs and wonders, insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect! (Matthew 24:24)

It is bad enough to shock Christians with the idea that the writings of Paul have been presented to them as an amazing fulfillment of that dire prophecy - that the inclusion of his "gospel" (Galatians 1:11) in Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) Holy Bible is God's true account of His prophecy's fulfillment before our eyes! But in applying that "shock therapy", one could call it, to include error of one's own along with the attempted "correction" is inexcusable! And I am wringing my hands, before Him, in the realization that I have done exactly that to one of my dearest friends!

When I wrote the conclusion of the review I made, to "help" my friend understand the biggest part of its trouble, here is what I wrote, of the author:

He, the proud follower of this “voice of God” that he believes has been leading him into “the joy of revelation”, has bought into or believed “the biggest lie Satan has ever foisted upon the church and the world”; and it is not, as the author believes, “eternal torment”! It is that Jesus' blood was shed on His cross to provide the “redemption” (Romans 3:24) or “ransom” for the “death” that is “the wages” (Romans 6:23) of the sin of every person who has ever lived!

The problem with that ill-advised statement is that I presented two ideas as both being "the biggest lie Satan has ever foisted", one of them being true and the other false! It is true that Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiach's (the Messiah,s or Christ's) shedding of His blood was the fulfillment of God's "redemption" for His children; but it did not "obtain" it. (Hebrews 9:12) One can not obtain that which has already been obtained; Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) wrote, in past tense, through His prophet:

Fear not: for I have redeemed thee; I have called thee by thy name; thou art Mine! (Isaiah 43:1)

I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions and, as a cloud, thy sins! Return, unto Me; for I have redeemed thee. (Isaiah 44:22)

In fairness to myself, I did write, in my friend's behalf:

In comparison to Satan's lie through Paul, the issue of whether or not “eternal torment” exists pales in significance, the reason being that, if this “cross of Jesus” as the only way to be saved from eternal torment is not as Paul presented it, if God's way of salvation has always been available to His children, with Jesus' death on the cross simply being God's method of reminding His children of His way so that they will “repent” (Matthew 4:17) and listen to His “voice” (Deuteronomy 28:1; John 10:16; 18:37), for a change, Brother Zender's fear that all were lost who lived prior to Jesus' death or who failed to see in it the unique or exclusive salvation presented by Paul becomes a burden he need not have carried!

We see this ever available "redemption" in Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) assurance to His children, clear back when He was ministering through Isaiah, as I have shown above! In fact, it goes clear back to the foundation He laid for it in His Torah through Mosesl! He said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ), through Moses:

47 If a sojourner or stranger wax rich by thee and thy brother who dwelleth by him wax poor and sell himself unto the stranger or sojourner by thee or to the stock of the stranger’s family, 48 after he is sold, he may be redeemed again! One of his brethren may redeem him. (Leviticus 25:47 and 48)

Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) said: "Whosoever shall do the will of My Father Who is in Heaven, the same is My brother, sister and mother!" (Matthew 12:50) And He spoke of "the least of these My brethren"! (Matthew 25:40) So, having come into the world as the human son of the virgin Mary, He could be and is the "brother" who "obtained eternal redemption for us". (Hebrews 9:12)

But Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) did not obtain Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) redemption when He died on His cross on Earth; He did that "from the foundation of the world" (Revelation 13:8), when He promised His Father that He would "lay down" (John 10:17) His life at the appointed time!

Furthermore, only those who "do the will of" Yeshua ha Mawshiyach's "Father" are His "brother, sister and mother", which limits whom He can redeem to those who "hearken diligently unto the voice of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM), thy God, to observe and to do all His commandments" (Deuteronomy 28:1), which has nothing to do with the "redemption" (Romans 3:24) that Paul taught, since his "gospel" (Galatians 1:11) is vehemently opposed to observing any such thing!

As usual, Paul's language sounds quite spiritual, Satan's having directed him to say that we are "justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus"! (Romans 3:24) And no one can deny that a "redemption" is "in" Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ)!

But people fail to realize that in Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) Spirit, Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) was "slain from the foundation of the world" (Revelation 13:8), which made it possible for Him to say in the past tense through His prophet to "the children of Israel" (Deuteronomy 29:1): "I have redeemed thee." (Isaiah 43:1; 44:22)

With these key scriptures in mind, one cannot deny, as I stated in the review I wrote for my friend, that God's way of salvation has always been available to His children, with Jesus' death on the cross simply being God's way of showing His children a critically important truth so that they will "repent" (Matthew 4:17) and listen to His "voice" (Deuteronomy 28:1; John 10:16; 18:37), for a change. He gave, through Moses: His definition of a person who is in that way:

Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) shall establish thee an holy people unto Himself, as He hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM), thy God, and walk in His way! Deuteronomy 28:9)

An "holy people" are not on their way to "Hell"! And that "way" was and is today to "hearken diligently unto the voice of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM), thy God, to observe and to do all His commandments"! (Deuteronomy 28:1) He said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ): If thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments! (Matthew 19:17) He gave that precious knowledge to one who had asked Him: "What good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?" (Verse 16) And He made it abundantly clear that He was talking about His commandments through Moses! (Verses 18 and 19)

In the critical review I wrote for my friend, the point I was trying to make was that, if this blessed saving "way" was available in Moses' day and even clear back before Abraham's day, he having "kept" (Genesis 26:5) Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) "law" (Verse 5), Paul's claim and Christianity's belief that Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach's (the Messiah's or Christ's) shedding of His blood "obtained eternal redemption for us" (Romans 3:24; Hebrews 9:12) for the first time ever, its existence in Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) Spirit never having been available to save or pay a "ransom" (Matthew 20:28) for the freeing of His children, is the nasty hook that Paul put inside the juicy "worm" or "bait" that the hungry fish will invariably bite, only to find itself being hauled out of water, its natural element, and made to die!

In Paul's "gospel", he made it abundantly clear that the "redemption" he was talking about had nothing to do with one's keeping of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) Torah through Moses! For, throughout his presentation of that gospel, he made repeated statements blaspheming that law and anyone's effort to keep it, writing:

Acts 13:39 - Ye could not be justified by the law of Moses!

Romans 3:21 - The righteousness of God without the law is manifested.

Romans 3:28 - A man is justified, by faith, without the deeds of the law.

Romans 6:14 - Ye are not under the law.

Romans 7:4 - Ye ... are become dead to the law.

Romans 7:6 - We are delivered from the law.

Galatians 5:2 to 4 - 2 If ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing! 3 For I testify, again, to every man who is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law. 4 Christ is become of no effect unto you; whosoever of you are justified by the law, ye are fallen from grace!

Galatians 5:18 - Ye are not under the law.

Philippians 3:6 to 8 - 6 Touching the righteousness that is in the law, [I was] blameless! 7 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ! 8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung!

Colossians 2:13 and 14 - 13 You, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath He quickened together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, 14 blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to His cross!

The above extracts from Paul's "gospel" shows the spirit and voice behind Paul's "gospel" (Galatians 1:11) to be anything other that of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) and His Kodesh (Holy) Ruach (Spirit); Who wrote, through His prophet:

Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) is well pleased for His righteousness’ sake; He will magnify the law and make it honorable! (Isaiah 42:21)

When I read the above prophecy years ago, I instantly knew what Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) calling to ministry upon me was! And I have been defending and recommending one's keeping or putting a value on the commandments of His Torah through Moses ever since, in the confidence that in our keeping or "guarding" (Strong: Hebrew: 8104; Greek: 5083) those commandments has ever lain "the keys of the kingdom of Heaven!" (Matthew 16:19

Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ): "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) And, without getting into what His problem was with "the scribes and Pharisees", I believe it fair to say that in His divine order the "righteousness" of His children is most important!

Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) said through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ), through Moses: "It shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM), our God!" (Deuteronomy 6:25)

But anyone who with all Christendom has raised up, as we have seen in the above blasphemies by Paul, as a source of truth countermanding that of God through Moses or His Son (God's being our Creator of all and King over it - the One Who gives each of us the breath of life each moment of our lives) an apostle whose damning ministry came twenty years after Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) died, was resurrected and went to Heaven, will ignore God's truth; in fact, I have heard the pastor of my friend's church say: "The law is dead!"

But we must then ask, Why did Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) command, before His father brought Him home: "19 Go ... and teach all nations ... 20 ... to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you" (Matthew 28:19 and 20), when He was "the Word" (John 1:1) Who "was God" (Verse 1) and Who said, of Moses: "He wrote of Me!" (John 5:47)

Then people wonder why, as they believe and teach Paul's blasphemy against those commandments, the circumstances of their life refuse to come together, notwithstanding an heart full of love for God and Jesus and the preaching they hear every Sunday, the first day of the week, which they reverently observe in defiance of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) commandment that they observe His Sabbath and "Holy Convocation" on "the seventh day"! (Leviticus 23:3)

So I pray that my dear friend, for whom I wrote my review of her troubling book, will forgive me for being careless and not "rightly dividing the Word of Truth"! (2nd Timothy 2:15), to quote the Christian's errant spiritual hero!

I pray that this information I have given you is true in Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM'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 You and of the life you have given them by which to enjoy Your careful provisions for their salvation and that of their neighbors!

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 in their unified understanding of Your marvelous way and its eternal rewards!

I pray that Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) 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!
