Yahuah Hayah's Tithe
(Please note: This sermon can be directly accessed on the Internet at enterhiscovenant.com/Sabbath20171104.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 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, a young man with whom I entered into conversation, yesterday, when he learned that I had a ministry, recited Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach's (the Messiah's or Christ's) Parable of the Talents, so that I could then answer a question that he had about it. The parable goes like this:
The question the young man had for me concerning that parable was: How can I double my tithe? And Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) gave me this answer:
So in the first place one cannot well "double" that which does not belong to him; but Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) wrote, through His prophet:
We also have the interesting promise made by Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ): "Every one who hath forsaken houses, brethren, sisters, father, mother, wife, children or lands for My name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold and shall inherit everlasting life!" (Matthew 19:29)
Talk about "doubling" one's resources! "An hundredfold" is one hundred times the investment that anyone makes in His Creator and King! And in this regard, Yeshua's promise includes "forsaking" relatives or loved ones for His sake, which suggests the sacrifices that are made by the families of those persons who dedicate their time and talents in serving Him.
If there be anything not addressed by the above considerations, we have, also, the words of Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ): "Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over shall men give into your bosom! For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again!" (Luke 6:38)
Giving to "the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless and the widow" is loving them, which fulfills Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) commandment that we do that (Leviticus 19:18; Matthew 22:39), which is also loving Yahuah, Who loves all His children, which fulfills His "First and Great Commandment" (Verse 38), upon which "hang all the law and the prophets"! (Verse 40)
So the giving of tithe is involved with fulfilling "all the law and the prophets", which are the expression of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) will! And Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) said: "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)
So the giving of tithe is involved even with the "eternal life" (Matthew 19:16) that is secured by him who shall "keep the commandments"! (Verse 17)
All of these considerations tie together, to where one's ignoring any one of them blocks his access to "the kingdom of Heaven" (Matthew 5:20), which requires one's "righteousness" (Verse 20), which is obtained by those who "observe [or put a value on] to do all these commandments before Yahuah, our God"! (Deuteronomy 6:25)
The Parable of the Talents upon which I focused at the beginning of this sermon has another important implication, which we have not yet addressed! In another place, Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) called the care of another's goods "stewardship"! (Luke 16:2); and in the Parable of the Talents the good stewardship of the enterprising servants was rewarded by being told: "Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord!" (Matthew 25:21)
Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) gives, to each of us children of His, "talents", which are things or abilities to work with, which we can either invest for a good return or bury them and have taken from us "even that which he hath"! (Matthew 25:29) And the punishment of the indolent servant becomes even more drastic, in his being "cast ... into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth" (Verse 30)! which is a clear reference to one's being sent to Hell, which implies the opposite for those who exercise good stewardship of the telents Yahuah gives them, rulership "over many things" and entering "into the joy of thy lord" being a clear reference to entering Heaven!
So those who lean heavenly on Paul's "faith in His blood" (Romans 3:25) for their assurance of Heaven will be sadly disappointed, if they have not also entered into the good stewardship clearly taught by Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ)! And the most important part of that stewardship is what we do with His tithe!
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.
