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, He is directing my attention to the curious relationship that exists between believing Him and enjoying the relief He has for those who are believing Him; and I am speaking, here, of relief from every form of discomfort or disease that exists! I am speaking of the glorious fulfillment that He has in mind for every one of His beloved children, if they will only believe Him for it. He said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ):
That wonderful verse of scripture, so often quoted, says it all! It encoumpasses, in only a few words, the entire amazing and glorious scope of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s desire in creating all, with us, His beloved children, as a part of it. He said, through "the four and twenty elders" (Revelation 4:10) who worship before His throne in Heaven:
Since it was for His "pleasure" that Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) "created all things", why is it so hard to understand that it was for our pleasure that He created us? And "pleasure" relates to all things that disease, poverty or death are not! So, when we see neighbors suffering such things, we know that they have somehow missed His will for them and got caught up in the thievery, murder and destruction that Satan has for all who will follow him! Yahuah said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ):
Notice how, in Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s sight, "life" says it all! If we are not enjoying the all that He has in mind for His children, we are not even enjoying His "life" (Deuteronomy 30:19) but are stumbling along in some part of His "death"! (Verse 19) He said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ):
Indeed, Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) regards those who are not following Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ), His beloved "Word" (John 1:1) and "only begotten Son" (John 3:16), as the walking dead, fit only to bury the bodies of those who like themselves are no longer living! Yeshua said:
In other words, to come to "the Father", Who is the Author of all life, one must already be alive by being in Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ)! His coming to Earth was that "they might have life"; and He said, "I am ... come to call ... sinners to repentance!" (Matthew 9:13) And that is the way by which we come into His life. But what does that mean?
"repent" (Matthew 4:17) means "to think differently" (Strong: Greek: 3340) and "Sin is transgression of the law!" (1st John 3:4) So Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) came that Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s children who are sinning "think differently" about keeping or putting a value on the commandments of Yahuah's Torah, law and covenant! Because Yahuah said, through Yeshua, through Moses:
"All these blessings" comprise the "life" that is Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) and that we are as children of His made "in the image of God"! (Genesis 1:27)
So "life" is our natural state! And to be "dead" while still living physically is to have lost the life that was ours by inheritance!
Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) spoke of "these little ones who believe in Me"! (Matthew 18:6) So believing in "God" (John 1:1) is our natural state; and to lose it has to be the result of something having gone terribly wrong in our life.
Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) spoke of that terrible wrongness as the work of those who "offend" (Matthew 18:6) or "entice to sin" (Strong: Greek: 4624) His "little ones"; and He had some very unkind words to say about such people. And, since "sin is the transgression of the law" (1st John 3:4), the "offence" is being enticed to break the commandments of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s Torah, law and covenant!
Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) spoke, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ), through Moses of His Torah, law and covenant as "your life"! (Deuteronomy 32:47) For observing "to do all His commandments" (Deuternomy 28:1) is the way in which His children can have all His "blessings" (Verse 2) come on them and "overtake" (Verse 2) them and thus enable them to enter into the "life" (Deuteronomy 30:19) that those blessings describe!
We are at a loss to describe the "relief" that such blessings and life provide for those who have entered into the darkness, terror and pain of death! One simply has to experience it for himself! Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ)'s beloved apostle John wrote, of Him: "4 In Him was life; and the life was the light of men! 5 The light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not!" (John 1:4 and 5)
In general Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s children did not comprehend the "light" that shone among them through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ); but some did! John did, or he could not have written of it as He did! And for those who did comprehend the light of the life of which Yeshua is the embodiment, His relief for them was indescribable!
Howard Storm made a valiant effort to describe the relief that he felt, having been taken up from the darkness and terror of Hell into the light and glory of Heaven:
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, not to mention our ministry of practical helps for the disadvantaged!
