Thoughts for the Sabbath of
2017 December 2

Yahuah Hayah's Truth

(Please note: This sermon can be directly accessed on the Internet at http://www.enterHiscovenant.com/Sabbath20171202.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 Hayah'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 I call "getting prayed up"!

As for the thoughts that Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) gave me for this Sabbath, most importantly, Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) said: "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life! No man cometh unto the Father but by Me!" (John 14:6) From that statement we learn that Yeshua is "the Truth" and that"no man cometh unto the Father but by" (John 14:6) Him, Who is "the Truth" as well as "the express image of" (Hebrews 1:3) "God"! (Verse 1) So we who have come to the Father by Yeshua do indeed serve Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM), our Creator and King of truth!

The next important consideration is that 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) And from those important statements we learn that the natural extension of a God of truth is the Torah, law and covenant He gives to His children, which, logically enough, is also "the truth". Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) said, to Pilate, the Roman governor who would give the order to crucify Him:

To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth! Every one who is of the truth heareth My voice! (John 18:37)

Previously, Yeshua ha Mawshiyach had said, "Other sheep I have, who are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear My voice!" (John 10:16) Truth is wonderful! But it takes someone to hear it, to make it of any use to anyone!

Truth is an important consideration; because accurate information about our God, ourselves and the environment into which He has put us is the only way we have by which to respond appropriately to His requirements concerning us, to conditions within ourselves and within our environment, either threatening or fulfilling!

So false information is misleading, which then causes us to do things that fail to answer our true needs, the needs we thought we were answering sometimes not even existing! And, when the need is that of spiritual salvation, false information can even rob a person of his or her eternal life with Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) and cost one his or her citizenship in "the kingdom of God"! (Matthew 6:33) Yahuah said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ):

Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. (Matthew 6:33)

To emphasize the importance of His truth, Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) wrote, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ), through His faithful apostle John, "All liars shall have their part in the lake that burneth with fire and brimstone, which is the second death!" (Revelation 21:8) And, not surprisingly, we find that the chief characteristic of "that old serpent, called the Devil and Satan" (Revelation 21:8) is that he "deceiveth the whole world"! (Verse 8)

The chief characteristic of Satan's being that he deceives the whole world is understandable, considering that Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s truth shows us the way by which to fulfill His will in our lives in every way possible! He said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ), through Moses:

1 If thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe to do all His commandments ... 2 ... all these blessings shall come on thee and overtake thee. (Deuteronomy 28:1 and 2)

Having told His children through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) through Moses what those blessings would be and what His curses would be, Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) then said:

I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live! (Deuteronomy 30:19)

Then, when Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) sent Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) to walk among and teach His children personally, He said, through Yeshua: "If thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments!" (Matthew 19:17) And that was in answer to the question: "What good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?" (Verse 16)

So, by these careful comparisons, we find that Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s Torah, law and covenant, which is His truth (Psalm 119:142 and 151), provided the way by which to obtain "eternal life", which embarrasses the teachers of Paul's "gospel" (Galatians 1:11), which insists that "ye could not be justified by the law of Moses"! (Acts 13:39)

To be "justified" (Acts 13:39) is a King James translation of a word that is translated elsewhere "be righteous" (Strong: Greek: 1344); and in Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s Torah, He offers, to His children, that "it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments"! (Deuteronomy 6:25)

"Eternal life" (Matthew 19:16) is one's experience in Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s kingdom! And He said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ): "Except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of Heaven!" (Matthew 5:20) So we can see that the matter of having righteousness is important and that it is offered, by Yahuah, in His Torah, law and covenant! (Deuteronomy 6:25)

Furthermore, one's experience in Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s kingdom is an immediate blessing! For He said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ): "Behold, the kingdom of God is within you." (Luke 17:21) Yeshua said, to His disciples:

Rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but, rather, rejoice because your names are written in Heaven! (Luke 10:20)

So the "blessing" or "cursing" and the "life" or "death" that Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) said through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) through Moses He had set before the children of Israel pertains to either being in or out of His kingdom, which is determined by His having written their names or not written them in His "Book of Life"! (Revelation 3:5) And, in the case of "back-sliders", even though their name may have been in that book, Yahuah can and does erase it, when the bad attitude of His child warrants it; He wrote, through Yeshua, through His faithful apostle John:

He who overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment! And I will not blot out his name out of the Book of Life! But I will confess his name, before My Father and before His angels! (Revelation 3:5)

The fascinating thing to me is that this arrangement of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) for His child to be in His kingdom, as shown by the child's name being in His Book of Life, was in place clear back in Moses' time; He said, to Moses: "Whosoever hath sinned against Me, him will I blot out of My book!" (Exodus 32:33)

On that matter, I want to be clear: Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) was not talking about the person who has sinned "through ignorance" (Numbers 15:27), which relates virtually to all of us most of the time! Keeping track of and obeying six hundred and thirteen commandments is a lifetime occupation, which is done well by virtually no one!

Rather, Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) was talking about the person who has sinned "presumptuously"! He said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ), through Moses: "30 The soul who doeth ought presumptuously, whether he be born in the land or a stranger, the same reproacheth the Lord; and that soul shall be cut off from among his people!" 31 Because he hath despised the word of Yahuah and hath broken His commandment, that soul shall utterly be cut off; his iniquity shall be upon him."!(Numbers 15:30 and 31)

So, as long as a person is "keeping" or putting a value on the commandments of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s Torah, law and covenant, he or she has Yahuah's "righteousness" (Deuteronomy 6:25), his or her name is written in His "Book of Life" (Exodus 32:33; Revelation 3:5) and he or she is in Yahuah's "kingdom"! (Matthew 5:20; Luke 17:21)

So why are we surprised to find that Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s "covenant" (Genesis 17:7) with Abraham is "an everlasting covenant" (Verse 7) and that His "covenant with the house of Israel" (Jeremiah 31:31) is an "everlasting covenant" (Psalm 105:10), which "He hath remembered ... for ever, the word that He commanded to a thousand generations"! (Verse 8)

Our having focused on Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s truth, it has taken us into a number of amazing considerations; and this is only the beginning! He said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ):

When He, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth! (John 16:13)

He, "the Spirit of truth" comes the minute one hearkens to His "still small voice"! (1st Kings 19:12) For He has always been there, being the power to which Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) referred when He wrote through His author, of Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ), of His "being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, upholding all things by the word of His power! (John 16:13)

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 seek Your truth!

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 receiving and acting on Your truth 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!
