Thoughts for the Sabbath of
2017 Febuary 4

Yahuah Hayah's Promises

(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 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 throughout His creation! 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, He promised, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ), through Moses: "All these blessings shall come on thee and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of Yahuah, thy God!" (Deuteronomy 28:2) That is a promise by Him Who is the Creator of all and king over it, including us! He said, through a prophet:

God is not a man, that He should lie; neither the son of man, that He should repent! Hath He said, and shall He not do it? or hath He spoken, and shall He not make it good? (Numbers 23:29)

Although this truth is good for all occasions, the occasion for my being interested in this topic for this Sabbath is the plight of the atheist, who, having accepted the lie that "There is no God!" (Psalm 14:1), is not accepting the promises of that God Whom he supposes does not exist! So the atheist is floundering in the morass of circumstances that develop when they are not guided by a strong helmsman with a steady hand on the ship's rudder!

The "helm" given us by which to guide our ship is our "dominion ... over every living thing that moveth upon the Earth" (Genesis 1:28), which Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) told His disciples requires that one "speak" to his "mountain", commanding that it "be ... removed and be ... cast into the sea" (Mark 11:23), thus removing all that hinders him from attaining the goals that Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) has put into his heart!

The one so speaking must "not doubt in his heart but" must "believe that those things that he saith shall come to pass", in which case, "he shall have whatsoever he saith"! And that is saying a lot! For all of creation was made in that way! Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) said, to blind men: "According to your faith be it unto you."

Having faith in a creation that came out of nowhere on its own, the atheist must be content with the circumstances of his life's coming out of nowhere, with no rhyme nor reason! And that speaks of a mayhem that I certainly do not want for my life; and I suspect the same is true for you!

Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) has given us many promises throughout His Holy Bible; but they await our "Amen!" or they only sit there, unfulfilled, for lack of a grateful child's coming into agreement with them.

I love the one where Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) said: "With men this is impossible! But with God all things are possible." (Matthew 19:26) It is so comforting, to me, to know that nothing is too great for ha Kodesh (the Holy) Ruach (Spirit) to accomplish in my behalf, when I have so little faith as "a grain of mustard seed"! (Matthew 17:20)

I believe this is true, because half-hearted faith does not exist! Either one believes or he does not, there being no middle ground for faith, which is why Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) spoke so eloquently of "these little ones who believe in Me"! (Matthew 18:6) "Except ye be converted and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of Heaven!" He said; and I am sure that is so because of the accepting way they believe in Him, having at their young age no reason ever given them as to why they should not believe in Him.

On the other hand, the atheist is full of reasons not to believe and will wear you out listening to him, the minute you get within hearing of him. But he is having his reward, as the circumstances of his life refuse to come together into any meaningful whole, as the ship with no helmsman at the rudder to give it the direction it must have to make it from port to port!

Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) assured His listeners that "your Father Who is in Heaven ... maketh His sun to rise on the good and on the evil and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust" (Matthew 5:45): for He gives each child of His an opportunity to get himself into accord with His Creator, so that he can be fulfilled as Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) wants us to be.

But that opportunity lasts only so long! And, when the time is up, Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) will ask each one of us, "What did you do with the opportunity I gave you to learn of Me?"

Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) said: "28 Come, unto Me, all ye who labor and are heavy laden! And I will give you rest! 29 Take My yoke, upon you, and learn of Me! For I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls! 30 For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light!" (Matthew 11:28 to 30)

Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) did not say those who come to Him would have no "yoke" or "burden"; He said they would be "easy" and "light"! For by Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) amazing design, we, His beloved children, have the parts that He wants us to play in His creation along with Him! But those "parts" are "easy" and "light", because His mighty Spirit is there to do our bidding! He simply awaits our direction! And that awaits our faith to believe that He is there to fulfill the direction we order for Him.

It is like the "power steering" of a car! One only need to give the steering wheel a slight turn, upon which pressure the power steering mechanism of the car moves the heavy and cumbersome wheels in exactly the direction that the driver has given it. But back in the day before engineers had developed power steering, drivers had to exert all the strength they had to turn the wheels where they wanted them to go!

Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) does not require us, His beloved children, to exert great pressure to get the circumstances of our lives to move in accord with His will for us. All He asks of us is to say what we want, believing in the power that He gives to that saying; and our lives become the joy that He has wanted for us since before He created us.

You will notice that I qualified the circumstances of our lives to move "in accord with His will for us"; for it is possible, for those who have discovered the power of mankind's dominion without the wisdom to know the critical value of their Creator's will for them, to use their dominion contrary to His will, in which case Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) will say to them: "I never knew you: depart, from Me, ye who work iniquity!" (Matthew 7:23)

That's being true, one is well advised to notice that Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) will for all His children is expressed by His "voice" (Deuteronomy 28:1) in their Spirits, which always directs them "to observe to do all His commandments" (Verse 1) as they are found in His Torah or law through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) through Moses! 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)

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. (Verse 151)

8 He hath remembered His covenant for ever, the word that He commanded to a thousand generations! 9 Which covenant He made with Abraham and His oath unto Isaac 10 and confirmed the same, unto Jacob, for a law, and to Israel, for an everlasting covenant! (Psalm 105:8 to 10)

Consider this promise: "Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield and thy exceedingly great reward!" (Genesis 15:1) Why did Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) say that to Abraham? Yahuah said, to Isaac: "4 In thy seed shall all the nations of the Earth be blessed! 5 Because Abraham obeyed My voice and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes and My law!" (Genesis 26:4 and 5)

So the promises of God are wonderful; but they do not come without the simple price He requires, which is to "observe", "guard" (Strong: Hebrew: 8104) or put a value on "all His commandments"! (Deuteronomy 28:1)

That is not to do Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) commandments perfectly; for He knows our weaknesses! Rather, it is to put a value on them, to make them a matter of the heart, thus fulfilling His "New Covenant with the house of Israel" (Jeremiah 31:31), in which He promised to "put my law in their inward parts and write it in their hearts!" (Verse 33)

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 Your knowledge and the understanding of Your truth by which to fulfill Your wonderful promises for their lives!

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 ease with which You accept their direction and empower it to accomplish great things!

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.

Amen! Alleluia!
