Blaspheming Yahuah Hayah
(Please note: This sermon can be directly accessed on the Internet at enterhiscovenant.com/Sabbath20171028.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 some people call "getting prayed up"!
As for the thoughts that Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) gave me for this Sabbath, an Atheist I know became so bold in expressing his position as an Atheist that he used a profane curse and directed it against "the Holy Spirit", Whom we know as "ha Kodesh Ruach"! The Atheist did that in the presence of a believer, presumably to demonstrate to the believer that to do such a thing poses no threat from God, Whom the Atheist of course does not believe exists!
But Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) said:
This sounds quite ominous for the Atheist, who dared to speak blasphemy against exactly that Person of the Godhead! But I would remind you that in the Atheist's heart, God does not exist! So, to blaspheme someone who presumably does not exist, does not qualify as intending to offend that actual Person of the Godhead! And "the judgments of Yahuah are true and righteous altogether!" (Psalm 19:9) So we might say that in that audacity, the Atheist was acting in ignorance! And I believe that Yahuah would not condemn a child of His acting in ignorance!
The Atheist is in enough trouble, spiritually, as it is, in failing to keep "the First and Great Commandment", which Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) said is to "love Yahuah, thy God, with all thy heart, with all thy soul and with all thy mind!" (Matthew 22:38) The original commandment says "with all thy might"! (Deuteronomy 6:5), upon which commandment, along with loving one's neighbor (Matthew 22:39), "hang all the law and the prophets"! (Verse 40)
As relucant as I am to quote Paul on anything, I believe he had it right in writing: "19 That which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shown it unto them. 20 For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse!" (Romans 1:19 and 20)
I am a great admirer of the author of Job, in having shown, so clearly, that Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) remedy for Job's sin in questioning His judgment was to ask him: "Where wast thou, when I laid the foundations of the Earth?" (Job 38:4) In other words, "What have you ever had to do with the magnificence of My creation? And you believe that I do not know what I am doing?"
Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ), through Moses:
My point in quoting that wonderful promise here is to point out that Yahuah has a "voice", to which He expects all of His children to "hearken"! And that "voice" is the "still small voice" (1st Kings 19:12) of Himself, which He has put into the spirit of each one of us, His beloved children! And each one of us has the choice either to "hearken" to it or not! He said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ), through Moses:
Hearkening to that voice "when I was upon my mother’s breasts" (Psalm 22:9) is the reason for those to whom Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) referred in speaking of "these little ones who believe in Me"! (Matthew 18:6) How could such "little ones" believe in Yeshua or in Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM), Who always is the One speaking through Yeshua, had He not been "my God from my mother’s belly"? (Psalm 22:
So Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) "voice" is there, in our spirit, waiting to be heard by each one of us; so the Atheist takes, upon himself, the responsibility for ignoring that voice, in declaring that the voice he thinks is his own does not represent or speak for any God, while demanding that people "prove" the existence of that God, for him, the Atheist, to accept Him as real! How sad yet true of so many among us, Yahuah's beloved children!
My belief that the Atheist's daring to blaspheme the Spirit of the God Whom he believes does not exist is not quite so serious as the one who does that in the full knowledge of God is born out in Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) words through His author:
This verse speaks of the spiritual hopelessness of someone who "shall fall away" in a full "knowledge of God"! (Hosea 6:6) Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) said, through His prophet: My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge! (Hosea 4:6) which of course suggests that "gnorance is no excuse"! But our beloved Yahuah is more merciful than that, looking constantly for the intent of His child's heart before judging him; He wrote through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ), through Moses:
5 I, Yahuah, thy God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them who hate Me 6 and showing mercy unto thousands of them who love Me and keep My commandments! (Exodus 20:5 and 6)
Here, again, is Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) moving for or against His children according to what they are doing in their hearts toward Him; and the Atheist is doing neither, not believing in the existence of any God either to love or to hate.
But, as I have shown above, the Atheist still is in trouble, spiritually; for to fail to "love Yahuah, thy God, with all thy heart, with all thy soul and with all thy might"" (Deuteronomy 6:5; Matthew 22:37) is "sin", which is "transgression of the law" (1st John 3:4), which is "unrighteousness" (1st John 1:9), which unforgiven bars anyone from "the kingdom of Heaven"! (Matthew 5:20)
So, if to "blaspheme against the Holy Ghost " (Mark 3:29) not believing that such a spirit exists does not put one in Hell, failing to love the God Whose "voice" is in one's spirit will indeed put him there; so my heart goes out to anyone caught in that state of mind! It is sad beyond describing! For it does, indeed, relate to eternal consequences, unless, as with Howard Storm, such an one is, by some miracle, finally delivered from Hell, which Howard Storm's wonderful testimony assures us is possible, although unlikely, due to the reprobate condition of those whom Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) sends there.
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.
