Yahuah Hayah's True Children

(Please note: This sermon can be directly accessed on the Internet at

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, He has many children whom He has created; but He said, of them, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ): "Strait is the gate and narrow is the way that leadeth unto life, and few there be who find it." (Matthew 7:14) The few who do find that way are His "true children"! And He has directed me to talk about them, this beautiful Sabbath!

The question arises: Why do so few among Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) children find His way "unto life"? When I think of the odds against my having found it, I tremble and wonder what made the difference with me to where I finally bowed my knee and committed myself to serving the amazing God Who created me.

I know of an elderly couple who prayed for me for thirty years that I would find that way; and they lived to see me come and tell them of my newly found life in Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ); and, of course, that gave them great joy!

I know what led me astray! An English teacher at the university I attended taught his class about "semantics" or the idea that words have only the meaning we give to them, which meant that they could mean anything and were therefore unreliable in conveying truth! That, of course, made the bible seem to be unreliable; so I went for thirty years, supposing that my idea of truth was as good as anyone's, let alone the bible's! But Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ):

To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth! (John 18:37)

I am the way, the truth and the life! (John 14:6) And

31 If ye continue in My word, then are ye My disciples indeed! 32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free! (John 8:31 and 32)

When I finally did come back to Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM), He showed me, in my spirit, that He had assigned the meanings of the words He had given His children by which to learn His truth and that therefore they were reliable indeed and are His way of giving His children His truth. In fact, it had been by Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach's (the Messiah's or Christ's) speaking of Yahuah's words that He had created all things!

But we have an enemy among us in Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) spirit realm, who also speaks to us in our spirit; and Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) said, of Him, that He is "a liar"! (John 8:44) "Satan" is his name; and, because he hates Yahuah and us, His children, he tells us things that are not true, so that we will become confused about what is true and be destroyed in the process! Yahuah said, through His prophet:

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge! (Hosea 4:6)

Coming back to the elderly couple who prayed for me for thirty years, the question arises: What put that amazing love into their hearts for one young man among so many, to pray that he be given the "knowledge" by which to be saved from the destruction that overcomes so many? And I must confess that, although love obviously comes from God, Who "is love" (1st John 4:8), I don't know why He singled out me for that special attention! But, having that same love in my heart for all my brothers and sisters, I pray every morning that all of them be "alive, loved, blessed, righteous, holy, perfect and in Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) kingdom, for my sake!"

So I honestly don't know why so few among Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) many children find His way into life; but that's being the sad truth, all of us who love Him and His beloved children need to pray with me, each morning, that they do find His way. That exercise of our privilege in Him is pleasing to Him; so He blesses those who do show that love for Him and His children; and I am here to tell you that such blessing brings His joy into our hearts as nothing else can!

You can well ask: What do you mean by Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) "true children"? Are there false children?

Sadly, there are many who profess to be His children yet, when it appears to be inconvenient to them, they turn a deaf ear to Him and refuse to hear Him; He said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ):

Not every one who saith unto Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of Heaven but he who doeth the will of My Father Who is in Heaven! (Matthew 7:21)

I know of a woman who, having professed to believe Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) and His Holy Bible who, when she got discouraged by the trouble her husband was having in making an adequate living for them, dismissed him from her life! And she had a right to do that; Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ), through Moses, of His married daughters and their husbands:

10 Her food, her raiment and her duty of marriage shall he not diminish! 11 And, if he do not these three unto her, then shall she go out free! (Exodus 21:10 and 11)

But, then, just as her ex-husband was developing a relationship with a new woman, with uncanny timing the first woman contacted her ex to let him know that she had had a change of heart and would he please come back! And, believing that he was obligated to do that because of having been married to the first woman, he left the second and returned, leaving the second woman wondering what she had done wrong to lose her new man!

Over the course of several years this pattern was repeated four times, until the haggard husband let his changeable wife know that, if she changed her mind again, it would be the last time he would come back; and, sure enough, she did; and he kept his promise; and that was the end of that tragic miscarriage of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) will for their lives!

The chageable wife's problem lay in her openness to the voices of lying devils in her spirit instead of to Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) voice, Who would have had her use her "dominion ... over every living thing that moveth upon the Earth" (Genesis 1:28) and pray for her faltering husband to be helped to function better, instead of trashing him each time she felt he wasn't doing enough for her.

Additionally, with the problem of the other women having been created, the ex-wife's change of heart could have been accommodated by her simply accepting the other woman as part of their family in compliance with Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) Torah or law, which allows for more than one wife for each husband! "The children of Israel" are the descendants of four mothers and one father! And Yahuah never had a problem with that.

But, when the beleaguered husband once suggested that alternative, the changeable wife refused any such idea! God's people in the western world have been taught that one wife for each husband is the only acceptable way, regardless of what Yahuah allowed in His Torah or law, which is dismissed as irrelevant by Paul's teaching. ([1] Acts 13:39 [2] Romans 3:21 [3] Romans 3:28 [4] Romans 6:14 [5] Romans 7:4 [6] Romans 7:6 [7] Galatians 5:2 to 4 [8] Galatians 6:18 [9] Philippians 3:6 to 8 [10] Colossians 2:13 and 14)

The first woman had no love for the second woman, in defiance of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) commandment that His children love their neighbor "as thyself" (Leviticus 19:18); and the woman brought into knowing the husband because of the first woman's habit was left alone, frustrated and bewildered, one such woman having taken her life, for the depression she went into because of the strange abandonment she had suffered!

This course of events was hardly Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) will for the children of His who were involved! And I find this sad story to be a perfect illustration of what happens when His children "are destroyed for lack of knowledge" (Hosea 4:6) about the way in which He would have handled this couples affairs, had His voice been heard by either the husband or the wife.

Truly, Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM), the One Who created us through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ). knows what He is doing! And our proceeding without careful reference to His voice through His prophets in His Holy Bible and in our spirits is a recipe for disaster! He said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ), through Moses:

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)

But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of Yahuah, thy God, to observe to do all His commandments ... that all these curses shall come, upon thee, and overtake thee. (Deuteronomy 28:15)

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!

Father, by my "faith in God"! (Mark 11:22) I "speak" (Mark 11:23), to your children, and command that they be given, by Your Holy Bible and Your voice in their spirits, the knowledge and understanding of Your will, so that their time and energy will be spent in ways that are truly pleasing to You.

I rejoice (John 15:11) that you are faithful to fulfill your children's powerful use of their "dominion ... over every living thing that moveth upon the Earth"! (Genesis 1:28) I know you answered this prayer, in ha Kodesh Ruach, your Holy Spirit, the moment I said it; and I believe I "receive" (Mark 11:24) a family of brothers and sisters who are rejoicing over the wonderful blessings and eternal life in Your awesome presence that doing Your will for Your children brings them.

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!

Amen! Alleluia!
