Yahuah Hayah's Beauty

(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 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, He woke me up, in the middle of the night, with the strong impression that He wanted me to deal with the concept and our experiencing of His beauty, which is found gloriously expressed throughout all His creation!

In meditating on the idea of beauty, the questions arise: What is it? What makes it so notable and wanted? And Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) showed me that the answer lay in the question itself! The fact that we do want something is the essence of why we regard whatever we are looking at as beautiful; and the more desirable it is the more beautiful we think it is.

We are attracted by that which we want; and that is a good thing; for the obtaining of that which we want is important to us, whether it be food, sex or life itself!

Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) knows this; for He made us; and, having made us "in His own image" (Genesis 1:27), His wanting things is reflected in us! We call it His "will"! He said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ):

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)

The idea of entering "into the kingdom of Heaven" appeals to us; we have, in our spirits, the innate sense that in "Heaven", the home of our Creator, lies the "jackpot" of life, containing, we believe, every good thing there is or that we could possibly want! For that reason we regard Heaven as being the essence of all that we can think of that is beautiful!

So, as we behold the various things around us that we want, most of which we must have or die, we say, to ourselves, "That is beautiful!" Consider a mother's love for her child! What is more beautiful? With it the child thrives! Without it the child dies! And we naturally respond to it as "beautiful"!

For her to have had the child in the first place, the mother had to be a desirable woman! Some man had to want her; and she had to want him! The way Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) has made His sons and daughters mutually attractive, that wanting of each other results in their doing together what brings children into the world; and we regard that whole process as beautiful!

When the child enters the lives of its parents, he or she feels hunger; and he or she cries! The mother responds by giving it her breast! We regard that as beautiful! And without it the child dies!

Are we not surprised, then, to find that this same accommodation of the dependent child by a loving parent is expressed, by Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM), in His describing the relationship we have with Him! Having expressed to us through Moses His will for us, by the writing of the commandments of His Torah or law, He 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)

Later He said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ), through Moses:

46Set 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! 47It is not a vain thing, for you; because it is your life! (Deuteronomy 32:46 and 47)

Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ):

The words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life! (John 6:63)

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

How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who bringeth good tidings, who publisheth peace, who publisheth salvation, who saith unto Zion, thy God reigneth! (Isaiah 52:7)

In sharp contrast to all this beauty is the ugliness of all that runs counter to Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM). We are repulsed, by that which is ugly; we do not want it. We want no part of it. And Satan, who is the angel of death, is the epitome of all that we do not want, unless somehow he has deceived us into thinking that he and his deadly ways are what we do want.

Then our world gets turned upside down! That which is good seems to become evil; and that which is evil begins looking better and better to us, until we are fit only to be thrust into Hell, where Yahuah is not and where all those who have turned their backs on Him are sent when they die! And the wretchedness of that place is beyond comprehension!

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

6 Eat thou not the bread of him who hath an evil eye, neither desire thou his dainty meats! 7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he. (Proverbs 23:6 and 7)

If one thinks about beautiful things, he becomes beautiful. If he thinks about ugly things, he becomes ugly! The power of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) word to shape us is tremendous; but the same is true of Satan's word or that of his many servants!

Creation was brought into being with a word; are we surprised, then, to find ourselves being formed in the image of the words upon which we dwell? Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ), through Moses:

The word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it. (Deuteronomy 30:14)

And I might add: "that thou mayest become it".

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 beauty, to where they can appreciate why You have made important things so attractive to us.

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 power of Your word to mold them and make of them the beautiful sons and daughters that You have wanted them to be.

I pray that Yahuah Hayah shall bless you mightily, throughout the coming year, 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!
