Yahuah Hayah's Method
(Please note: This sermon can be directly accessed on the Internet at http://www.enterhiscovenant.com/Sabbath20170318.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 wrote, through His prophet: "Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of Yahuah revealed? " (Isaiah 53:1)
In those questions, Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) made reference, through His prophet, to four basic elements of our faith! 1 He is asking for those who have believed; 2 He speaks of "our report", which is His "word"! 3 He speaks of His "arm", which is His power! 4 And He speaks of a truth about Himself being "revealed"!
Believing is important; for Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ): "God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life!" (John 3:16)
1 "The world" is comprised of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s children, whom He loves, regardless of their indifference to Him. 2 He "gave" Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ), His "Word" (John 1:1) and "only begotten Son" (John 3:16), to overcome that indifference by sending Him into the world, to "bear witness unto the truth" (John 18:37)- yes, to be God's embodiment of His "truth" (John 14:6), by Whom all of us "cometh unto the Father" (Verse 6), to "draw all men unto" (John 12:32) Himself, by being "lifted up" (Verse 32) or crucified on the Roman cross of tortured death, to "purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God" (Hebrews 9:14), to "to call ... sinners to repentance" (Matthew 9:13) and thus "fulfill" (Matthew 5:17) "the law" (Verse 17), "one jot or one tittle " of which "shall in no wise pass from" it "till all be fulfilled", "till Heaven and Earth pass"! (Verse 17)
Being a physical creation, "Earth" may conceivably "pass"; but, being the place of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s "throne" (Revelation 4:2), Heaven is eternal! So it will never "pass".
A law that is "fulfilled" is a law that is being kept! And Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) did that, being "without sin" (Hebrews 4:15)! But Yeshua's keeping the law did not fulfill the entire scope of its purpose! For within it is an invitation to Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s beloved children to receive His "blessings" (Deuteronomy 28:2); and, until the last child ever created has availed himself of that invitation, Yahuah's Torah or law has not been fulfilled and so will not "pass"! It is as eternal as its Author! He wrote, through His psalmist:
"The law" is Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'S words through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) through Moses! And He said, through Yeshua, of those words: "Heaven and Earth shall pass away, but My Words shall not pass away." (Matthew 24:35) Words that do not "pass away" are eternal, as is their Author!
Words have no meaning unless they are enforced, fulfilled or carried out! And that is where "the arm of Yahuah" (Isaiah 53:1) comes in; it is His power to carry out what He says! And the entire creation is the result of Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach's (the Messiah's or Christ's) having taken Yahuah's word and said, "Let there be light!" (Genesis 1:3)
I have said all of the above to lay a foundation for understanding or appreciating Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s Method, which is to speak His word, which is the "report" that He wants "believed", that His "arm" be "revealed"! His "arm" was revealed, when Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) spoke creation into being! But His having made us "in His own image" (Genesis 1:27) was so that we would follow His lead and speak words of creation ourselves, activating that same "arm" in our behalf.
But we would not follow Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) lead through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ), thus revealing His arm through the speaking of our words, if we had not believed His word or "report" letting us know that we can speak such words expecting His arm or power to move in our behalf!
So Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s "method" among us, His beloved children, is to speak His word and then wait for us to believe it and speak it for ourselves, thus activating it in our behalf, His "arm" or power being ours as well, in the willingness of ha Kodesh Ruach, His Holy Spirit, to act on our word, because Yahuah has commanded Him to do that.
Since this "method" or process is so vital to our fulfilling Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s purpose for us, which is to join Him in His being the Creator, to participate in His creation, Satan has taken notice of that method and devised a way to bring it to its knees for anyone who will believe his lie concerning it.
Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) has called some of His children to be what we call "scientists", people who work with His physical creation and study it carefully, to learn how it functions and thus take advantage of what it can and will do for anyone who works with it in the knowledge of its characteristics or the way in which it best functions to fulfill various of our needs!
To make this study accurate and "prove" how our physical environment behaves under various conditions, a method of study has been devised, which has come to be known as "the scientific method", which is well and good and useful where it is practiced! But it is such a complicated way of studying involving expensive laboratories manned by well paid researchers that only the wealthy can take advantage of "the Scientific Method".
Taking notice of that problem with "the Scientific Method", Satan has raised it up as a standard that must be met by anyone to believe anything about anything, thus undermining all kinds of things that are accepted as "truth" because Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s voice in His children's spirits has encouraged them to do so.
This is particularly true of spiritual matters or the truth about Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) and how He functions, Who "is a spirit" (John 4:24), about Heaven, His spiritual realm, and about our real selves, which are spirits that are as eternal as He is, none of which can be subjected to any physical laboratory or its methods to learn about physical things!
So anyone having received Satan's horrendous lie about "the Scientific Method" and its being the only reliable source of information about anything, physical or spiritual, has been cut out of knowing anything about his Creator, the knowledge of Whom can only come to us through His word and our willingness to believe it and act on that belief!
Although I have given attention to this problem before, I was struck forcibly by my atheist friend's saying in our last visit how important he believed "the Scientific Method" is to knowing or understanding anything! He obviously had received Satan's lie about that method, "hook, line and sinker" as fishermen like to say, and thus had cut himself off from believing and functioning in an entire world of considerations that Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) has given us, His beloved children, to consider, believe and act upon, among which is His way of eternal life!
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 the question He was answering with that assurance was: "What good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?" (Verse 16)
The "commandments" are Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s words, which He spoke through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) through Moses! One cannot "keep" or put a value on that which he has not believed! And a person having received Satan's lie about "the Scientific Method" will not believe Yahuah's words through Yeshua or anyone else! In fact, such a victim will not believe anything anyone says about anything that has been found beneficial and has therefore been told to others, that they might be blessed as well!
So I have listened, with dismay, as my atheist friend has belittled every account of a beneficial finding shared by anyone anywhere about anything under the sun, all of which is part of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s Method of sharing knowledge about His creation by His children's speaking words that tell of it. He said, through His prophet: "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge!" (Hosea
This importance of telling beneficial things is emphasized by Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s commandments concerning one's being a "witness"! He commanded: "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour!" (Exodus 20:16) That of course suggests lying about the neighbor; but lying about anything to the neighbor is "false witness against thy neighbor" as well! For it tempts the neighbor to rely on information that has been corrupted and will perhaps hurt him, if he acts on it.
So Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s method is vulnerable to falsehood! But what else is new? He made Himself vulnerable to His children's choice to walk in contempt of Him, of His truth and of His knowledge about anything, which of course is a destructive path leading to nowhere other than death and everlasting destruction!
But, vulnerable or not, Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s method is His only way of transmitting His word and the truth that it conveys! And He said, of it, 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) And He said, through Yeshua, through Moses: "Choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live!" (Deuteronomy 30:19)
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.
