Yahuah Hayah's Word
(Please note: This sermon can be directly accessed on the Internet at http://www.honorhislaw.com/Sabbath20170930.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 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 in the universe! 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, As He was about to return to be with His Father in Heaven, Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) said: "Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world!" (Psalm 89:30)
Since Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) is "the Word" (John 1:1 and 14), we can be assured that "the Word" is with us still! And that amazing accommodation would have to be by the power of ha (the) Kodesh (Holy) Ruach (Spirit) to deliver Yeshua's words to us in our spirits! He said, of ha Kodesh Ruach, "He shall receive of Mine and shall show it unto you." (John 16:14)
I dare say that Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach's (the Messiah's or Christ's) words are still "spirit and ... life"! (John 6:63) And, as one who will not even watch videos or television regularly for fear of missing something that Yeshua is saying to me in my spirit, I sense quickly the futility of preoccupations in people around me who get emotionally caught up in matters relying on mens words about everything under the sun!
The same is true of watching sports! And, since childhood I could not, for the life of me, become concerned about whether or not an inflated bag of leather made it into a basket or over a goalpost, granting that the efforts of the players are interesting, if I happen to be where someone else is watching a game of some kind.
This may relate to my calling; for this indifference to the goals of athletes has been with me for years, whereas my concern has been, for the forty-two years I have been in Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) service, where people are in their relationship to Him!
Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) made it clear that, when He would "bring" (John 10:16) "sheep ... who are not of this fold ... they shall hear His voice"! (Verse 16)
That hearing of Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach's (the Messiah's or Christ's) "voice" is important! For He said, of Moses: "He wrote of Me!" (John 5:46) For He, Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) "Word", was the One Who gave Moses Yahuah's Torah or law, in which He said: "1 If thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of Yahuah, thy God, to observe and to do all His commandments ... 2 ... all these blessings shall come on thee and overtake thee" (Deuteronomy 28:1 and 2); and, when Yeshua came to teach Yahuah's children in person, He said:
Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) then set forth loving God and loving one's neighbor as the "two commandments" upon which "hang all the law and the prophets"! (Matthew 22:40)
So, when I hear people arguing about whether the Earth is flat or round or whether we are or are not "the center of the universe", I find myself asking, I wonder how the contestants in the argument are doing in loving Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) or their neighbors! And, I dare say, such love expresses itself in ways that address the needs of one's God or neighbor.
Yes, "God" or Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) has "needs"! When He created us, He gave us a "dominion ... over every living thing that moveth upon the Earth"!(Genesis 1:28) And in doing that, He made Himself vulnerable to whatever we decide to do with that dominion; so whatever one of us says believing "that those things that he saith shall come to pass, he shall have whatsoever he saith"! And that obligates ha (the) Kodesh (Holy) Ruach (Spirit) to carry out whatever we have commanded!
So we had better be sure that what we have required Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) Spirit to do for us is, according to Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ), "the will of My Father Who is in Heaven"! (Matthew 7:21) For, if it is not, we will have hurt the One who created us; and for that reason He will say, to us: "Depart, from Me, ye who work iniquity!" (Matthew 7:23) So it is important to what we give our time, energy and dominion!
Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) will say, to people who have lovingly ministered to their neighbors' needs: "Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world!" (Matthew 25:34) But, to those who have failed to minister lovingly to their neighbors' needs, He will say: "Depart, from Me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire prepared for the Devil and his angels!"
Do our neighbors need to know whether the Earth is flat or round or whether or not we are the center of the universe? Or are they more concerned about where they will lay their weary head come nightfall or with what they will satisfy their gnawing hunger! If they are "naked" (Matthew 25:26), they of course would appreciate something to wear! And, if they are "sick, or in prison" (Verse 39), they undoubtedly would appreciate someone's bringing comfort, healing or release, would they not?
So what has that practical ministry to do with whether the Earth is flat or round or whether we are the center of the universe? In either of these cases, hunger still hurts, thirst parches, cold penetrates and illness or imprisonment threatens! Are we addressing these matters for Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) children throughout the world? He loves and cares about them too, you know; and He blesses those who also love and care: He wrote, through His psalmist:
So listen to Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) "Word", in your spirit, Who is Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ), Who by the glory of ha (the) Kodesh (Holy) Ruach (Spirit) will guide you to do exactly what your Father in Heaven wants you to do; and that will fulfill you, wonderfully, guaranteed!
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!
