Yahuah Hayah's Wisdom
(Please note: This sermon can be directly accessed on the Internet at http://www.enterHiscovenant.com/Sabbath20170715.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 (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 I call "getting prayed up"!
As for the thoughts that Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) gave me for this Sabbath, He wrote, through Solomon: "Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding!" (Proverbs 4:7)
Advised by Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) through Solomon to "get wisdom", we do well to do that; and He has shown me what His "ultimate wisdom" is: It is to acknowledge that He is and that He lovingly looks after His children in all things they try to do!
That "ultimate wisdom" is made meaningful by contrasting it with the ultimate foolishness, which Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) expressed through His psalmist: "The fool hath said, in his heart, There is no God!" (Psalm 14:1)
Obviously, if "there is no God", no one is looking after us; and we are on our own, which is the dismal view of the atheist, near to whom I walked as an agnostic, for thirty years of my adult life, supposing that, although He may be there, God cannot be known!
Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) not being there at all or not being there to help us amounts, virtually, to the same thing; and anyone caught up into believing that "ultimate lie" has been robbed of the amazing privilege that Yahuah intended that His children enjoy, which is to know that He is there for us and willing to apply His mighty Spirit's power to fulfilling our slightest wish, so long as we have expressed it "and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things that he saith shall come to pass"! (Mark 11:23)
Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) said: "The thief cometh not but for to steal, to kill and to destroy! I am come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly!" (John 10:10) That is a tremendous statement; and it is appreciated best by understanding how "the thief" steals, kills and destroys.
Obviously, "the thief" is Satan or "the Devil" (John 8:44), of whom Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) said: "He was a murderer from the beginning and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar and the father of it." (Verse 44)
Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) wrote, through His faithful apostle John: "The great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world!" (Revelation 12:9)
Satan's role as the Deceiver tells us how he steals, kills and destroys: It is by his convincing his victims that Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) does not exist or that, existing, He cares not for His children! In that way Satan steals, from them, the knowledge that Yahuah is there and that He lovingly cares for His children, without which knowledge they cannot take advantage of His provisions for them; for those provisions are based on their believing Him; and one cannot believe that which he does not know! Yahuah wrote, through His prophet: "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge!" (Hosea 4:6)
Through His author Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) has defined "faith" as "the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen"! (Hebrews 11:1) "Substance" is real! It is what we know underlies "things hoped for". And "evidence" is real. Although we cannot see certain things, they play a vital part in our lives! We cannot see electricity! Yet it lights our homes and moves our machines of industry! We cannot see the spirit part of us; yet we relate, with each other, knowing that each other is real!
Where would we be, if we had received from Satan the lie that electricity does not exist or that each other does not exist? We would be helpless to function, would we not? We would have been robbed of the knowledge of electricity and the knowledge of each other's reality, so that we would not be using electricity, caring for each other or receiving from each other.
The same is true with those who have received the lie that Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) is not there or that He does not lovingly take care of us in ways that are too numerous and amazing to describe! Such people will not pray to a Creator they do not believe exists or a King Who does not hear us; and He cannot respond to a silent child!
The reason for this is that Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) has given us, His beloved children, the "dominion ... over every living thing that moveth upon the Earth"! (Genesis 1:28) We must say what we want, before He can move by His powerful Spirit to accomplish what we want! And we cannot "say" what we do not "believe"! So to convince us with the "ultimate lie" that Yahuah is not there or that He does not take care of us when we ask Him to is, effectively, to rob us of our dominion; and without it we perish! So by "the ultimate lie" the Deceiver does, indeed, rob, steal and kill Yahuah's children!
Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) spoke of "these little ones who believe in Me"! (Matthew 18:6) That is the way we start out! Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) wrote, through His psalmist: "9 Thou art He Who took me out of the womb! Thou didst make me hope, when I was upon my mother’s breasts! 10 I was cast upon thee from the womb! Thou art my God from my mother’s belly!" (Psalm 22:9 and 10)
But "these little ones who believe in Me" can be "offended" by those who "entice" them "to sin"! (Strong: Greek: 4625) Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) said: "6 Whoso shall offend one of these little ones who believe in Me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea! 7 Woe unto the world because of offences! For it must needs be that offences come! But woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!" (Matthew 18:6 and 7)
The severity with which Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) spoke against anyone who "offends" or entices innocent children to sin underscores the importance I am giving to "the ultimate wisdom", which is to believe that Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) is there and that He lovingly cares for us, His beloved children, which is the way we start out believing, before the Tempter and his servants have had a chance to convince us otherwise!
If Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) is, indeed, there and looking after us, if all that we know throughout His creation is by His amazing creativity, then He is worthy of our gratitude and praise! He wrote, of Himself, through His psalmist: "Thou Who inhabitest the praises of Israel!"
Those of us who are indeed grateful can hardly ignore what Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) has shown us through His Torah is pleasing to Him; Moses wrote:
Indeed, we are blessed beyond describing, for having been given "the knowledge of God" (Hosea 6:6) by which to avail ourselves of the privilege He has given us of activating His mighty Spirit in our behalf through our prayers! He has not only "created all things" (Revelation 4:11); but He has made us co-creators with Him, to make things "upon the Earth" (Genesis 1:28) the way we want them to be, which had better be in accord with His will! For Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) said:
All of these things come together, to spell out the most wonderful news in all the world - the "gospel of the kingdom", which "shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations" (Matthew 24:14), which is that Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) is there and that He lovingly cares for those who ask it of Him; 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, not to mention our ministry of practical helps for the disadvantaged!
