Thoughts for the Sabbath of
2015 July 4

More about War Crimes

(Please note: This sermon can be directly accessed on the Internet at http://www.honorhislaw.com/Sabbath20150704.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, knowing his interest in the topic, I asked Pete, our beloved Evangelist of Yahuah Hayah to California, to give me his view of my sermon on "Yahuah Hayah's Alleged War Crimes"; and he wonderfully responded, with the following email:

I read your sermon and recognize that to those whose only understanding is founded upon that which is presented in the Bible your observations would be spot on, leaning on the idea that prior to Yeshua's laying down His life those men, women and children who were struck down, having followed the teachings (as best they understood them) that had been passed on to them by their "religious leaders", became subject to being ruthlessly slaughtered but via Yahuah Hayah's mercy were offered an opportunity to be exonerated from that condition!

However, from the extended knowledge that both you and I posses, we know that there is another side to the story! Everything was going along fine, until one of the "gods" (Marduk) decided to overstep his boundaries, imparting upon himself the status of being the "one true God" and using his armies and influence to overthrow territories that did not belong to him. Through the course of such events, the human inhabitants served as fodder, doing the bidding of whatever "god" they were made to "worship"!

Additionally, within those cities were human inhabitants who, for no fault of their own, had their seed intermingled with that of the "gods", which caused them to become targets of genocide for the sake of keeping the "bloodlines of the gods" pure!

Knowing these things, we can see that it was the "wickedness" of the "gods" and not of mankind that resulted in the mass extinctions of those cities! But, all in all, I could appreciate your representation, based only on what the bible tells us.

In dealing with "Yahuah Hayah's alleged war crimes", one can see, from this clear analysis by Evangelist Pete, that I did so from what the bible teaches and not from what others teach; and, as he indicated, he and I know of one exceptional example of a teaching outside the bible, which we believe does not conflict with it but, rather, serves to answer questions about it that remain a mystery without additional information! So some background is in order, to understand what I am talking about.

Several years ago, Pete read, to me, over several months, from eleven books written by Zechariah Sitchin, his life's work in translating and interpreting tablets written by scholars of Sumer, the amazing civilization that suddenly appeared without prior indications where the Garden of Eden is supposed to have been located, in the Middle East, near the river "Euphrates"! (Genesis 2:14) Most of us are familiar with that area, from the fierce military activity that has now taken place there for many years, the United States being right in the middle of it!

Pete's fascination and eventually mine with Zechariah Sitchin's amazing work is because it reveals, through exhaustive Sumerian writings, the appearance some 450,000 years ago of a race of highly advanced people who came to Earth through space from their nearby planet of Nibiru, which, due to its long slow elyptical orbit around our sun only comes near to Earth once every 3,600 years, thus comprising a little known 12th planet in our solar system!

These people were called "the Anunnaki"; and the astounding thing that is learned from Sitchin's writing is that, to have slaves who could work the Anunnaki's gold mines in South Africa, they developed the human race, by mixing DNA from themselves with that of the undeveloped race they found inhabiting Earth when they arrived!

"The gods" to whom Evangelist Pete alluded are certain of the Anunnaki who, being the tall and impressive people they were with all their technology and flying capability, were regarded by humans to be "gods", which gave them an understandable advantage in ruling over the new race of people that they had developed, who over time had multiplied so extensively as to have burst their bonds as slaves in the mines and become the predominant race inhabiting Earth!

Readers who choose to give credability to Sitchin's work are able to see in the "gods" of the bible a logical expression of the Anunnaki's influence upon the people they developed and a good reason for the bible's inherent antipathy for "the gods" on the part of Yahuah Hayah, the Creator of all and King over it, Who authored His Holy Bible through the various writers that contributed to it over the centuries!

In permitting mankind to regard them as "gods" of any kind, which requires identifying them with the Creator of all, the Anunnaki abusing their advantages in this way were lying! And Yahuah Hayah, our God of "truth" (John 14:6) wrote, through Yeshua, through His faithful apostle John: "All liars shall have their part in the lake that burneth with fire and brimstone, which is the Second Death!" (Revelation 21:8)

Having worked our way through studying most of Sitchin's work, Pete and I learned, from Brother Sitchin's "The Lost Book of Enki", that the Anunnaki themselves knew and had a relationship with "the Creator of all"! And that explains why "Enki" was a shining example of the Anunnaki whose conduct appeared to be righteous and loving toward the humans, for whom they were responsible in having developed them.

The mere fact of Yahuah Hayah's using the Anunnaki to develop us, the human race, as we presently know ourselves, should not, in the understanding of a thinking person, interfere with any due reverence for and obedience to Him, as most of His Holy Bible encourages us to do!

Whatever specific events may have occurred and however confusing the bible that has come down to us may be, Yahuah Hayah has done His part in creating all things and making us a part of them; and He is continuing to do His part in giving us the breath of life each moment of our lives and by continuing to guide those among us who are willing to listen to Him!

So Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) is worthy of our highest regard among all the things we are asked to consider throughout our lifetimes! And for those who, like Job, are tempted to judge their Creator in a time of adversity, Yahuah has this question: "Where wast thou, when I laid the foundations of the Earth?" (Job 38:4)

The problem lies in determining how much of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) Holy Bible is "holy" or originating with him through a contributing prophet or apostle and which parts of the bible have come down to us as accounts of the Anunnaki "gods"! And this is where His fundamental offering in His torah or law through Moses becomes so important! It is based upon a child's hearkening to His voice "to do all His commandments" (Deuteronomy 28:1) and not merely to the commandments themselves, which presumably were written by Moses in the Old Testament and various apostles in the New!

Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) "fundamental offering through Moses" is not based on hearkening to His voice through any writer of the bible! It is based upon hearing Him directly from His voice in our spirits! And, when He sent Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) to Earth, to walk among and teach the children of Israel, He said, through Yeshua:

Other sheep I have, who are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear My voice! (John 10:16)

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)

That foundational invitation relies on the existence of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) voice! And where can it be heard except in the heart or spirit of each child of His? As Paul wrote:

11 The wrath of God is revealed, from Heaven, against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who hold the truth in unrighteousness! 19 because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shown it unto them. 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, so that they are without excuse! (Romans 1:18 to 20)

Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) wrote, through Moses:

11 This commandment that I command thee this day, it is not hidden from thee, neither is it far off! 12 It is not in Heaven, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go up for us, to Heaven, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it and do it? 13 Neither is it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go over the sea, for us, and bring it, unto us, that we may hear it and do it? 14 But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it. (Deuteronomy 30:11 to 14)

As the "express image" (Hebrews 1:3) of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) , Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) was and is "the Word" (John 1:1), Who said, "I am the way, the truth and the life! No man cometh unto the Father but by Me!" (John 14:6)

9 I am the door! By Me, if any man enter in, he shall be saved and shall go in and out and find pasture! 10 The thief cometh not but for to steal, to kill and to destroy! I am come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly! 11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep! (John 10:9 to 11))

Not too many people recognize this; but these passages refer to the "eternal redemption" (Hebrews 9:12) that Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) "obtained ... for us" (Verse 12), in having allowed wicked men to shed His blood! And it was this redemption to which Evangelist Pete alluded in speaking of "those men, women and children who were struck down" and their eventually being "offered an opportunity to be freed from that condition"; Yahuah Hayah wrote, through His prophet:

It pleased Yahuah to bruise Him; He hath put Him to grief! When thou shalt make His soul an offering for sin, He shall see His seed! (Isaiah 53:10)

The "seed" that Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) saw (in Heaven) were those among His dead children on Earth who either were already "righteous" (Matthew 9:13) or who had responded favorably to Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach's (the Messiah's or Christ's) having "preached unto the spirits in prison" (1st Peter 3:19) or those who had been kept "in the heart of the Earth" (Matthew 12:40) prior to Yeshua's having "obtained eternal redemption for us". (Hebrews 9:12)

When Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) "ascended on high" leading "captivity captive" (Psalm 68:18), He fulfilled the "eternal redemption" (Hebrews 9:12) that He had "obtained ... for us" (Verse 12), so that Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) was able to see His children from Earth where He wanted them, in Heaven with Himself, "redeemed from the Earth" (Revelation 14:3) and "from among men" (Verse 4)!

When by laying down His "life" (John 10:17) Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) had purged "your conscience from dead works to serve the living God" (Hebrews 9:14), Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) the Father saw "the travail of His soul (Isaiah 53:11) and was "satisfied"! (Verse 11) And He wrote, through His prophet:

11 By His knowledge shall My righteous servant justify many! For He shall bear their iniquities! 12 Therefore will I divide Him a portion with the great! He shall divide the spoil with the strong! because He hath poured out His soul unto death and ... was numbered with the transgressors! He bare the sin of many and made intercession for the transgressors! (Isaiah 53:11 and 12)

"By His knowledge" is better understood as "by knowing what was done to Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ)"; and by that knowledge "your conscience" (Hebrews 9:14) is purged "from dead works [from those contrary to God's commandments] to serve the living God" (Verse 14) by being obedient to the commandments of His Torah or law through Moses!

In having been asked "from the foundation of the world" (Revelation 13:8) to suffer this abuse at the hands of His wicked children and having agreed to allow it, Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) "was numbered with the transgressors" (Isaiah 53:12) or hung between two thieves! And, of course, His having "made intercession for the transgressors" (Verse 12) relates to His having prayed while on His cross: "Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do!" (Luke 23:43)

This "eternal redemption" (Hebrews 9:12) that Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) "obtained ... for us" (Verse 12) is, definitely, a part of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) Holy Bible with which His voice in our hearts or spirits agree!

With Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) having "put Him [Yeshua] to grief" (Isaiah 53:10) "to call ... sinners to repentance" (Matthew 9:13) or those who were guilty of "transgression of the law" (1st John 3:4), such transgressors could then return to keeping the commandments of the law, thereby entering "into life" (Matthew 19:17), even "eternal life" (Verse 16) and fulfilling that toward which Yahuah had worked with the children of Israel for centuries!

But along came Paul, who told his followers: "Ye are not under the law" (Romans 6:14; Galatians 5:18), which is only one of ten such blasphemies that he wrote (Acts 13:39; Romans 3:21 and 28; 6:14; 7:4 and 6; Galatians 5:2 to 4 and 18; Philippians 3:6 to 8; Colossians 2:13 and 14); and our "conscience" (Hebrews 9:9 and 14) goes "tilt" with the blatant way in which this 7 percent of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) "Holy Bible" directly opposes the other 93 percent, which maddening confusion has kept me busy unscrambling for our fellowship its grievous presumptuousness for several years!

Now Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) voice in my spirit has made it clear that I am to deal also with the "war crimes" that His bible lays at His feet; and the only way to relieve Him of seeming guilty of commanding that "the men, women, and children, of every city" (Deuteronomy 3:6) be utterly destroyed in the land He promised the children of Israel is to find another source for such commandments; and that "other source" Zechariah Sitchin has helped us to find in the outrageous conduct of those Anunnaki who exploited mankind's adulation of them as "gods", using them, as Pete said, "as human fodder doing the bidding of whatever 'god' they were made to 'worship' "!

Evangelist Pete informs us, from out of his and my studies of Sitchin's writings, that "one of the 'gods' (Marduk) decided to overstep his boundaries, assuming the status of being the 'one true God' and using his armies and influence to overthrow territories that did not belong to him". This, also, (in addition to Paul's doctrinal mischief) makes our "conscience" (Hebrews 9:9 and 14) go tilt; and we wonder how many records of Marduk's grievous aggression with human armies entered into the accounts of the merciless brutality supposedly commanded by Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) through Moses!

We probably will not know the details of this confusion, until we can "sit down with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of Heaven" (Matthew 8:11) and discuss with Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) Himself what went wrong in Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) Holy Bible!

In the meanwhile, we are forced to live with that bible and abstract from it the truth of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) as best we can; and that can only be done by listening to His inestimably precious voice in our spirits, His being ever there and ready to sort out for us the confusion that mankind's wicked willfulness has brought to His bible and to our lives in general!

We are indebted to Howard Storm, for His testimony of having talked with Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) in Heaven, Who, when Brother Howard asked Him why contradictions are in Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) bible, answered: "When you read the bible, you need to do so prayerfully!"

What is prayer, other than talking with Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) the Father? And how do we do that without hearing His voice in our spirits?

So we are brought back, time and time again, to the precious privilege that Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) has given us, His beloved children, to hear Him directly, without interference of any kind, unless we open and start listening to the voices of Satan's servants!

Purged of misconceptions about sin or of walking "contrary" (Leviticus 26:40) to Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM), which is the effect that knowledge of Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach's (the Messiah's or Christ's) suffering and death on the cross has on us, our "conscience" (Hebrews 9:9 and 14) becomes a reliable guide to follow in trying to fulfill Yahuah Hayah's will for us; for He said, of those commandments that truly are His torah or law through Moses, that they are "your life" (Deuteronomy 32:47) - even "eternal life"; and we have His voice in our Spirits, in the Person of His "Spirit of truth" (John 14:17; 16:13), to help us decide which parts of His Holy Bible are, indeed, His truth; for He said, through Yeshua: "The truth shall make you free!" (John 8:32)

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 You by which to see the wisdom in how you have dealt with Your children's extremely complex problems!

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 Your loving kindness and amazing patience in dealing with your children, with all their difficulties in learning and understanding your amazing and glorious will for them over all eternity!

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, not to mention our ministry of practical helps for the disadvantaged!

Amen! Alleluia!
