Yahuah Hayah's Clarity

(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 said, through Paul: "God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all churches of the saints!" (1st Corinthians 14:33)

Although this sermon could well have been called "Yahuah Hayah's Truth", His bringing it to us in a way that we can understand it is my emphasis here and I believe the emphasis that He would have me give it for this Sabbath!

Our concerns usually come out of experiences we have; and my concern for Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) clarity comes of a long-running debate I have had with a dear pastor friend of mine, who is a Christian sold on the idea that all words contained in Yahuah's "Holy Bible" are His words and thus to be considered "scripture"!

Paul wrote: "16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be perfect and thoroughly furnished unto all good works!" (2nd Timoney 3:16 and 17)

The reason why the debate between myself and my pastor friend has been "long-running" or difficult to be resolved is our sitting on opposite sides of the doctrinal fence that has been created by difficulties in the "scripture" of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) "Holy Bible", some of which refutes other parts of it, creating the "confusion" that Yahuah "is not the author" of.

People at all familiar with my preaching know that I undoubtedly am referring, in this discussion, to the problem of Paul's writings refuting the words of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) and through Moses, all of which can be found between the covers of Yahuah's "Holy Bible"! And this sermon is, necessarily, a discussion of the substance of the differences as well as the factors involved in one's effort to resolve that vexing doctrinal challenge, which comes up each time a "free thinker" such as myself comes into contact with a person who has yielded to the doctrinal position required to accept the writings of Paul as "the inspired word of God"!

In many circles, "free thinking" relates to contempt for any authority requiring adherence to his will or law! But my "freedom" of thinking is based, rather, on the words of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ), where He said:

31 If ye continue in My word, then are ye My disciples indeed! 32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free! (John 8:31 and 32)

34 Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. 35 And the servant abideth not in the house for ever! But the Son abideth ever! 36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed! (John 8:34 to 36)

I might add, here, that Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) wrote, through His psalmist:

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

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

If indeed the writings of Paul are "the inspired word of God", then God has to be "the author of confusion"; because Paul's writings have created more confusion concerning the words of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) and through Moses than anything else I can think of; and they have done this for the past two thousand years!

The bottom line and crux of this doctrinal confusion relates to the radically different methods of salvation given by Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) and Paul, the one based on a person's observing or putting a value on Yahuah's Torah or law through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) through Moses "to do all His commandments" (Deuteronomy 28:1) and the other based on one's "faith in His blood" (Romans 3:25) or that which was shed by Yeshua when He was crucified!

Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ): "If thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments!" (Matthew 19:17) And He was answering a man's question about "eternal life"! (Verse 16)

In stark and grievous contrast to that truth, by his false "gospel" (Galatians 1:11) Paul made clear that one's faith in Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach's (the Messiah's or Christ's) blood has absolutely nothing to do with one's regard for Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) Torah; and Paul made extraordinary efforts to establish that separation, by making at least ten statements refuting or blaspheming Yahuah's Torah:

[1] Acts 13:39 [2] Romans 3:21 [3] Romans 3:28 [4] Romans 6:14 [5] Romans 7:4 [6] Romans 7:6 [7] Galatians 5:2 to 4 [8] Galatians 6:18 [9] Philippians 3:6 to 8 and [10] Colossians 2:13 and 14!

So, I believe one can see why I find so grievous, the idea foisted upon mankind by the religious zealots of Paul's gospel, that all words contained between the covers of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) "Holy Bible" are "the inspired words of God"! For why in the world would He work so hard for several hundreds of years to establish His Torah or law as His way to have "all these blessings ... come on thee and overtake thee" (Deuteronomy 28:2), which He called "Your life" (Deuteronomy 32:47) and which Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) said was the way to "enter into life" (Matthew 19:17), even "eternal life" (Verse 16, and then turn around, raise up another "apostle" and have him give another way to receive that coveted and blessed life, one having absolutely nothing to do with one's behavior or his keeping of Yahuah's "commandments" (Verse 17) but based only on something done by His Son - namely, let His enemies kill Him.

Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) had His reasons for commanding Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) to lay down His life; and like Paul (Romans 3:25), He, too, said His "blood" was "shed for many for the remission of sins"! (Matthew 26:28)

But how that "remission of sins" would be obtained would not be merely by one's having "faith in His blood" that it would be "for the remission of sins" (Romans 3:25), as though the blood would be doing the forgiving without any other requirement for the sinner! Rather, it would be because "the blood of Christ" would "purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God"! (Hebrews 9:14) It would be the means by which Yeshua would " call ... sinners to repentance"! (Matthew 9:13), so that sinners having repented would confess their sins! And

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness! (1st John 1:9)

Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) wrote, through His faithful apostle: "Sin is the transgression of the law!" (1st John 3:4) So Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) salvation through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) was about returning sinners to keeping or putting a value on the commandments of His Torah or law through Yeshua through Moses! But Paul's salvation was "8 by grace ... through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest any man should boast"! (Ephesians 2:8 and 9)

So Paul's "faith" was "faith in His blood" (Romans 3:25) to forgive your sin, not in "your heavenly Father", Who "will forgive you" (Matthew 6:14), if we pray "forgive us our debts"! (Verse 12) which requires one to admit that he has sinned, which acknowledges the Father as the One Who gave us His Torah by which to know what sin is!

So, as I pointed out above, Paul's "gospel" (Galatians 1:11) works to destroy any sense of a person's obligation to keep Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) commandments, while Yahuah's "gospel of the kingdom" (Matthew 24:14) makes clear that one must have "righteousness" to "into the kingdom of Heaven"! (Matthew 5:20) And His "righteousness" is attainable only by one's observing "to do all these commandments before Yahuah, our God!"! (Deuteronomy 6:25)

Having worked our way through that difficult doctrinal maze, perhaps we can now see how the difference between my pastor friend and me is unresolvable, so long as he is determined, along with millions of Christian brethren, to fit those two diametrically opposite doctrines of salvation into being presumably "the inspired word of God" and so long as I am determined not to abandon my sense of reason simply to defend the firmly established doctrine of a badly deceived church!

If one can ever get a Christian to admit it, he has not really abandoned his sense of reason; he knows, perfectly well, that one cannot go down both roads to salvation at the same time; so he along with his millions of brethren chooses Paul's "gospel" (Galatians 1:11) over Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) "gospel of the kingdom" (Matthew 24:14) through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ); because it is the one where he supposedly doesn't have to answer to Yahuah in obeying the commandments of His Torah!

Because did Paul not say that

1 Ye could not be justified by the law of Moses! (Acts 13:39)

2 The righteousness of God without the law is manifested. (Romans 3:21)

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

4 Ye are not under the law. (Romans 6:14)

5 Ye ... are become dead to the law. (Romans 7:4)

6 We are delivered from the law. (Romans 7:6)

7 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 5:2 to 4)

8 Ye are not under the law. (Galatians 5:18)

9 6 touching the , blameless! 7 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ! [including “the righteousness that is in the law”] 8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things [including "the righteousness that is in the law"] but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for Whom I have suffered the loss of all things [including "the righteousness that is in the law"] and do count them but dung! (Philippians 3:6 to 8)

10 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! (Colossians 2:13 and 14)

So who needs to pay attention to Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) Torah or law through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) through Moses? So what that He said: "If thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of Yahuah thy God, to observe to do all His commandments ... that all these curses shall come upon thee and overtake thee?"

Did not Paul say "Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one who hangeth on a tree!" (Galatians 3:13) So what does Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) Torah or law through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) through Moses have to do with me?

Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) may have once said those things; but that was for "the children of Israel" (Deuteronomy 29:1), for "Abraham ... and thy seed after thee." (Genesis 17:9) We are not "sons of Abraham"; we are Gentiles saved "by grace"!(Ephesians 2:8), which Paul has made clear has nothing whatsoever to do with Yahuah's Torah!

So on and on the reasoning goes of those caught up in Paul's "gospel"! (Galatians 1:11) While Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ):

21 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! 22 Many will say, to Me, in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Thy name? and in Thy name have cast out devils? and in Thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess, unto them, I never knew you: depart, from Me, ye who work iniquity! (Matthew 7:21)

How does one do "the will" of Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach's (the Messiah's or Christ's) "Father Who is in Heaven", except by doing what He has said do or not do; and where does one find that instruction in His "Holy Bible" except where He had Moses record it? And did not Yeshua say, of Moses: "He wrote of Me!" (John 5:46) So "if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe My words?" (Verse 47)

The choice is yours! Follow Paul along with millions of Christians and suffer the consequences of cursing that they have suffered for two thousand years; or follow Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM), as He expressed Himself through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) and through Moses in His "Holy Bible" and have "all these blessings" (Deuteronomy 28:2) - including "eternal life" (Matthew 19:16) "come on thee and overtake thee". (Deuteronomy 28:2)

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 clarity so as to be certain of what You have wanted in creating 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; so I "believe" I "receive" (Mark 11:24), even now, a family of brothers and sisters who are rejoicing over the knowledge of how "keeping", "observing" or putting a value on the commandments of your Torah or law not only brings your multiple blessings upon them but ushers them into your kingdom of Heaven!

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!
