Yahuah Hayah's Kingdom
(Please note: This sermon can be directly accessed on the Internet at http://www.honorhislaw.com/Sabbath20170225.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, Creator of All 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 throughout His creation! 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 Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ): "The kingdom of God cometh not with observation! Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you." (Luke 17:20 and 21) and "If I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you." (Matthew 12:28)
I have a wonderful friend in Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) with whom I have for many years shared thoughts about the Bible, who recently stated his belief that being "born again" was not an experience that takes place while we are on Earth but, rather, when we are given our resurrection bodies! And to support that belief he quoted Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) as saying: "Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God!" (John 3:3), after which Yeshua explained:
The description that Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) gave for "every one who is born of the Spirit" suggests the resurrected man! because not being able to "tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth" is the way He was, when He reappeared to His disciples after being crucified! He appeared to them "at evening, ... when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews"! Yet He, "came ... and stood in the midst and saith, unto them, Peace be unto you." (John 20:19) And, when He had appeared to "two of them" who "went that same day to a village called Emmaus (Luke 24:13) ... He vanished out of their sight!" (Verse 31)
Certainly, that is not the way we come and go; so my friend's idea that being "born again" relates to our eventually being resurrected is understandable! But the quotations from Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach's (the Messiah's or Christ's) words with which I began this sermon suggest our experiencing Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) kingdom here and now while still alive!
For, if "the kingdom of God is within you", as we walk about our daily affairs, and if "the kingdom of God" was "come unto" the people to whom Yeshua was speaking as a revelation of what He was doing while not yet resurrected, we have a reason to wonder about Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) kingdom and of what it really consists!
Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) said:"If I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you." (Matthew 12:28) So, "the Spirit of God" at work was what He characterized as "the kingdom of God"! And He said:
Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) said, of that Spirit: "He dwelleth with you and shall be in you" (John 14:17), referring to "the day of Pentecost" (Acts 2:1), when His disciples would "receive power, after the Holy Ghost is come upon you" (Acts 1:8) And that was not an event that would take place in Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) spirit realm, with His children being dead! It was something that took place when they were quite alive! And it still takes place, when we are quite alive, ha Kodesh Ruach's presence in us being Yahuah's "gift" (Acts 2:38) to us the minute we "repent" (Verse 38) or "think differently" (Strong: Greek: 3340) about keeping or putting a value on the commandments of His Torah!
Causing His children to qualify for that extraordinary gift was the point of Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach's (the Messiah's or Christ's) ministry on Earth! For He said, "I am ... come to call ... sinners to repentance!" (Matthew 9:13) And His horrible torture and death on the cross was that call! For Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) wrote, through His author: "How much more shall the blood of Christ ... purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?" (Hebrews 9:14)
The person who has repented is the person whose conscience has indeed been purged of false ideas about what is right and wrong, our knowledge of right and wrong having been given us by Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) through the commandments of His Torah! So the purged conscience necessarily requires that one return to Yahuah's Torah for the "truth" (Psalm 119:142 and 151) concerning His "law" (Verse 142) and "commandments" (Verse 151), which His "Spirit of Truth" (John 14:17) reveals to us; and we have Him given us, "that He may abide with you for ever" (John 14:16), when we "keep My commandments" (Verse 15), Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) said!
So, as with so many things revealed by Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) Holy Bible, matters pertaining to His kingdom are a multi-faceted jewel, which cannot be separated without His kingdom's being denied us. It is "all or nothing", as the saying goes, His promise having been that in His "New Covenant with the house of Israel" (Jeremiah 31:31), He would "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!
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!
