Thoughts for the Sabbath of
2016 July 2

Why We Magnify the Law

(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, 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 (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 will bless you, the fellowship and all of His children in the universe! It is what I call "getting prayed up"!

As for the thoughts that Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) gave me for this Sabbath, we magnify His torah or law through Moses because He does; He wrote, through His prophet:

Yahuah is well pleased for His righteousness' sake; He will magnify the law and make it honorable! (Isaiah 42:21)

Please notice that in referring to His Torah or law Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) started out by saying how pleased He is with "His righteousness"! For He 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!" (Deuteronomy 6:25) And Yahuah's Torah is notable for the many "commandments" that He gave the children of Israel in it.

"Righteousness" is important! For, when Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) came to teach the children of Israel about Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM), His and their "Father Who art in Heaven" (Matthew 6:9), He said:

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)

Since entering Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) "kingdom of Heaven" is high on the list of most religious adherents, one can see that "righteousness" bears heavily upon the success of that venture! And, from what I have shown you above, we can see that Yahuah's Torah or law and one's observing to do "all these commandments" (Deuteronomy 6:25) are central to that goal!

Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) taught, through His Holy Bible, about "that old serpent, called the Devil and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world"! (Revelation 12:9) In other places Yahuah referred to him as "the Devourer" (Malachi 3:11) and "a liar" (John 8:44), which references cast him in a bad light, to say the least! So one can easily see that he is regarded, by Yahuah, to be His enemy and the enemy of His children!

Why I bring up such an unpleasant consideration is, simply, to point out that Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) and we have had that enemy for a long time! In Yahuah's Holy Bible the very old Book of Job tells how Satan appeared before Yahuah, accusing Job and virtually destroying him for awhile, until Job got the message that Yahuah wanted him to get, at which time He restored Job to health and prosperity!

With such an enemy's being a constant factor in the life of every one of us, according to the bible, we are well advised to ask: What is the most important thing that an enemy does? He goes after what is most important to his enemy, who are Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) and us! And I pointed out above how "righteosness" is the key to one's entering into Yahuah's "kingdom of Heaven"! (Matthew 5:20)

So why would depriving us of "our righteousness" (Deuteronomy 6:25) not be a likely strategy for Satan, our enemy?

And, sure enough, Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) warned, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ), of "false Christs and false prophets" (Matthew 24:24), who would "show great signs and wonders, insomuch that if it were possible they shall deceive the very elect"! (Matthew 24:24)

Well, do you know what? That is exactly what the so-called "apostle" Paul did; he told of receiving a "gospel" (Galatians 1:11) from a "Jesus Christ" (Verse 12) in the middle of "Arabia"! (Verse 17) He brought a man back to life who had fallen from a third-story window (Acts 20:9 and 10), he himself rose up having been stoned and left for dead (Acts 14:19 and 20), he lived, unharmed, having been bit by a deadly snake (Acts 28:3 to 5) and he cast out "a spirit of divination ... which brought ... soothsaying"! (Acts 16:16 to 18) But, most notably of all, he came teaching a "righteousness of God without the law" (Romans 3:21), insisting to the Jews that "ye could not be justified by the law of Moses" (Acts 13:39) and calling "the righteousness that is in the law" (Philippians 3:6) no better than "dung"! (Verse 8)

How false can a "Christ" (Galatians 1:12) and his "prophet" get than to teach a doctrone completely contrary to that of Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ), the real "Christ" (Matthew 16:16) with real "apostles" (Matthew 10:2 to 4), Who said, of Moses, "If ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe My words?" (John 5:47)

2 The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat: 3 All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do!(Matthew 23:2 and 3)

So, as a ministry in the service of "Yahuah" (Exodus 6:3), which name means "Self-Existent or Eternal" (Strong: Hebrew: 3068), Who is the Creator of All and the King over it, Faith Harvest Israel teaches His truth! And He wrote, through His psalmist:

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

all Thy commandments are truth (Psalm 119:151)

Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ), through Moses: "1 If thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of Yahuah, thy God, to observe and to do all His commandments ... 2 ... all these blessings shall come on thee and overtake thee."(Deuteronomy 28:1 and 2)

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)

Then, when Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) sent Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) to teach "the children of Israel" (Deuteronomy 29:1) about Yahuah, their heavenly Father, He said:

If thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments! (Matthew 19:17)

Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) made that amazing statement in answer to the question:

What good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? (Matthew 19:16)

Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ): "This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached, in all the world, for a witness unto all nations! And then shall the end come!" (Matthew 24:14) It has become clear to this fellowship that the gospel of Yahuah through Yeshua - "this gospel of the kingdom" (Verse 14) - is that of keeping the commandments of His Torah or law!

No territory is a "kingdom" without a law by which to govern it; and Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) kingdom is no different, except that His "New Covenant with the house of Israel" (Jeremiah 31:31) is an "everlasting covenant" (Jeremiah 31:31) with its primary benefit being "eternal life"! (Matthew 19:16 and 17) So that is why we "magnify the law and make it honorable"! (Isaiah 42:21)

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, understanding and desire to obey the commandments of Your precious Torah or law for the fulfillment of Your magnificent will for them.

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; and I believe I "receive" (Mark 11:24) a family of brothers and sisters who are rejoicing over the wonderful blessings and eternal life in Your awesome presence that obeying Your commandments brings upon them!

I pray that Yahuah Hayah shall bless you mightily, throughout the coming week; and that you 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!
