Yahuah Hayah's Creativity
(Please note: This sermon can be directly accessed on the Internet at http://www.enterhiscovenant.com/Sabbath20170429.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, 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 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, He said, through Yeshuah (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ): "With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible." (Matthew 19:26)
"Men" cannot create! They can make things, which is "creating" them in a sense; but they cannot do what Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) does, which is to cause something to come out of nothing, to cause electrons to start spinning in the ether of space and form them into the atoms that comprise the molecules that comprise the physical creation we see all around us and in ourselves!
But Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) has given His children the right to command Him to create, to "move mountains", if that is needed; He said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ): "Whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt, in his heart, but shall believe that those things that he saith shall come to pass, he shall have whatsoever he saith!" (Mark 11:23)
That is commanding God to move through the power of His Spirit the "mountain" or obstacle to one's need or desire that the user of his "dominion" (Genesis 1:28) commands of Him; so we are beholden, to Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM), for the Creation He set going to make us and place us in an the amazing environment we see around and in us and then for the creativity He permits us to require of Him for the meeting of our own needs and desires! What an amazing God we love, worship and serve - or at least should be, if we are not!
There are those called "atheists", who refuse to acknowledge that God exists, which requires, if that be true, that all things come into being of their own accord and that they are continuing in their amazing order and power to hurt or to please without anyone's direction, which takes an imagination or "faith", if you will, far beyond what it takes merely to acknowledge the obvious, which is that an amazing Creator directed and is continuing to direct the creation we are a part of and participate in each moment we draw the breath of life that He gives us each moment of our lives!
I keep telling the atheist I happen to know that I cannot prove he exists; I am not seeing him, as I watch him move his mouth and make the sounds forming the words that I hear; I am merely seeing the manifestation that he is making with the body he has been given to get my attention! For he is a spirit, which I cannot see; yet I am not sufficiently foolish to go around denying that he exists! I gratefully accept the manifestation that goes by the atheist's name; and I praise the God Whom I believe created him and is directing him to manifest himself as he does, with the exception, of course, of the stupendous misbehavior of which he is guilty!
So we know Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) by the results of His creativity that are all around us and in us; but we also know another part of Him, the Spirit part of Him, which, as with my myself and my friends, I cannot see, with the limitations He has put on us as physical beings!
But Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) can tell me about this other side of His creation - the spiritual side; and at times He chooses to give men whom He calls "prophets" visions of Himself and of His spiritual creation, directing them to write about what they saw, so that we, His beloved children, can have some idea of this other side of Himself and be prepared to join Him in that side, when He chooses to move us from His physical creation into His spiritual creation, which He calls "Heaven" and which has been described in glorious detail, by children of His whom He has taken there temporarily and returned them, so that they could tell us about it.
So Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) creativity covers an amazing number of details about our existence in Him, with which He keeps us spellbound, as He reveals bits and pieces of it to us, each day of our lives!
But woe is the experience of the one who fails to appreciate that creativity and the Creator behind it, cruelly ignoring Him and refusing to show any recognition of the amazing Person that He is! We are emotional beings, with feelings that can be hurt by others! And, with Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) having made us "in His image" (Genesis 1:27), where do you suppose our feelings come from? Is it not from the feelings of the Person in Whose image He made us?
In His telling us about Himself in His Holy Bible, Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) has shown Himself to be capable of having every emotion that we have; but, being the Source of it all, would He not feel His emotions ever so strongly!
Richard Eby suffered clinical death by falling onto concrete from the second-story porch of his house! And, after an amazing time in the "paradise" Yahuah had created for Him, Brother Richard's talking with Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) the whole time, Yeshua returned Brother Richard to his battered dead body, which was being kept in the morgue of his hospital!
But, when Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) put Brother Richard into his body, He let Brother Eby feel the pain of each cell in that body, which had been dying from lack of the oxygen and the nourishment that keep us alive! And, of course, that pain was excruciating, causing Brother Richard to cry out, with wonder as to why Yeshua was doing that to him; and Yeshua was quick to relieve Brother Richard of the pain and to explain why He had subjected Brother Richard to it.
Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) said that His purpose in letting Brother Richard feel what the cells of his body were going through at that moment was to make him appreciate a little of what Yeshua and His heavenly Father feel all the time, because of the violence and suffering of their children in all their rebellious behavior!
Needless to say, that suffering by God in behalf of His children is beyond our ability to comprehend or appreciate! It is what He purposely took upon Himself, to permit His children to choose what they would do, once He had created them; and, typical of all children, we choose to do foolish and hurtful things, until we learn the hard way to be more careful! And, while all of that is going on with millions of such children, Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) is feeling all of the hurt, by His Spirit being in the bodies of the children who are doing those hurtful things.
But the pleasant side of that picture, also, is there, giving Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) the pleasure of the good things that His children are doing, which is the reason why He created them in the first place; He wrote, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) through His faithful apostle John:
Is it any wonder, then, that, when Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) had "created all things" "God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good!"? (Genesis 1:31)
So, despite the potential for harm that causes us to offend our Creator and to subject Him to so much pain, the good that His creating us made possible outweighed that inevitable misbehavior on our part and made His suffering at our hands worth the trouble in His view, so that He could eventually enjoy the company of cocreators who loved Him and who well appreciated the wonder, glory and creativity of which He is capable, when we allow Him to show it to us, His already having shown us an amazing part of it in only the physical side of Himself!
So I beg of you, as one whose eyes have been opened to Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) beauteous glory, that you open yourself up to all that He has for you. He is only waiting for you to give Him permission to reveal His creativity to you fully! For He does not waste His fulness on those who are failing to show Him appreciation for even the physical side of Him, which, when one looks at it carefully, is an amazing thing in itself, one single part of which we cannot create ourselves!
But we flounder in the mess and deprivation that we have created for ourselves in our willfulness against our Creator, shaking our fists at Him Whom we believe is responsible for our suffering, when all the time it has been our own wilfulness and refusal to "hearken diligently unto the voice of Yahuah, thy God, to observe and to do all His commandments" (Deuteronomy 28:1), in which case "all these blessings" refuse to "come on thee and overtake thee" (Verse 2); and then we wonder why we are in the pitiful condition that we are!
It is the purpose of Faith Harvest Israel to bring you the "gospel" or "good news" that Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) has given to us, since the beginning of time, the power to command Him to be creative in our behalf, to turn our circumstances around to bless us rather than to curse us, if we will simply hearken to His voice "to observe and to do all His commandments"! Try it! You will like it! And I will rejoice with you, in the joyous results it will bring you. Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) said:
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.
