Yahuah Hayah's Ways

(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, 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, Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ), through Moses:

28 Yahuah shall establish thee an holy people unto Himself, as He hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of Yahuah, thy God, and walk in His ways! (Deuteronomy 28:9)

One of two ways by which we know of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) "ways" is by the commandments He has given us in His Torah or law! So walking in them requires that we know them; and that requires that one diligently study them.

The other way by which we know of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) "ways" is by hearkening "diligently unto the voice of Yahuah, thy God, to observe and to do all His commandments"! (Deuteronomy 28:1)

If we are listening carefully to Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) voice in our spirits, which we often mistake as our own, "He will guide you into all truth!" (John 16:13) And Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) wrote, through His psalmist:

Thy law is the truth (Psalm 119:142); and

All Thy commandments are truth. (Psalm 119:151)

People who have caught on to the presence of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's)'s Spirit in their own will often say, "The Lord told me" followed by what they believe He told them, which is not always what He has told them, for devils use the voice in our spirit to communicate their evil desires in relation to us, which is why knowing Yahuah's written word is important as confirmation of the truth of what He tells us in our spirit! For knowing the difference between His voice and those of Satan's servants is critical, if one is not to be seriously led astray!

I long ago discovered that Satan's voice is always the bringer of fearful scenarios - having a wreck with my car, having things go wrong with people I love, getting sick and so on! And, when such scenarious try to play out in my spirit, I have learned to shut them down quickly, while praising God that I do not have to be bothered with such impositions upon my peace and joy in Him!

Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) wrote, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ), through His faithful apostle John of Satan's being the one "who deceiveth the whole world"! (Revelation 12:9) And to do that Satan must have the ear of "the whole world"; and that is through the voice in our spirits of which I speak, which he can and does access, from time to time, especially in those who are open to his lies!

So a spiritual battle for our attention is constantly waging in our spirit, which we must correctly sort out, or wrong ideas soon overtake us; and we enter into all kinds of thinking by which our enemy hopes to destroy us.

The question can well be asked why Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) subjects His children to such temptation! Indeed, the sample prayer that Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) taught His disciples includes the request: "Lead us not into temptation!" (Matthew 6:13) And that gives rise to the next question: Why would "our Father Who art in Heaven" (Verse 9) do any such thing in the first place, to where we have to ask Him to stop it?

That question then leads one to seek to understand the purpose for Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) creating us and putting us on Earth, where He has permitted Satan's "going to and fro in the Earth (Job 1:7) to be the one "who deceiveth the whole world"! (Revelation 12:9)

We start out being "one of these little ones who believe in Me" (Matthew 18:6), Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) said; but of them He also said: "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!" (Verse 6)

So Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) punishes those who would "offend" or tempt His innocent children; but we still have yet to answer the question of His purpose in subjecting us to that temptation. Even on our own, we would respond to His invitation to "choose life" (Deuteronomy 30:19) or go the other way and choose "death" (Verse 19); but, knowing that His children must go one way or the other, Yahuah has given us helps to go either way, to make of our short time on Earth a concentrated testing for which way we are determined to go.

So Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) has a serious purpose in putting us on Earth, where measures of both Heaven and Hell are experienced by us, according to the choices we make, to "walk in His ways" (Deuteronomy 28:9) or in other ways, bringing to us "life and death, blessing and cursing" (Deuteronomy 30:19), to help us decide which way we really want to go.

In a word, Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) is a no-nonsense God; He has put us, His beloved children, here, on Earth, to get down immediately to the question of whether or not we are going to love Him or hate him, which we do according to whether or not we love or hate His children, which is why Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) called Yahuah's commandments to love Him and our neighbor "the First and Great Commandment" (Matthew 22:38), upon which "two commandments hang all the law and the prophets"! (Verse 40)

So those in the world who suppose that life is a "breeze" to be enjoyed at the expense of those around them are in for a rude awakening! For, although His rewards are great and eternal, His ways are hard! For, having laid down His life for our awakening, Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) said, to His disciples:

As My Father hath sent Me, even so send I you! (John 20:21) And

Whosoever doth not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple! (Luke 14:27)

So, wake up, friends. Our time on Earth was never intended by our Creator to be a picnic! Yet He said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ): "These things have I spoken unto you, that My joy might remain in you and that your joy might be full!" (John 15:11)

So, although Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) ways are hard, they are, also, rewarding! Indeed: He said, through His psalmist: "Weeping may endure for a night! But joy cometh in the morning!" (Psalm 30:5)

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 the knowledge, understanding and desire to endure the hardness of following in Your ways!

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 followinging in Your ways brings upon 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.

Amen! Alleluia!
