2018 February 24

Persecution Is Here

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 (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM), the Creator and King over all the universe, 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 said, through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ):

10 Blessed are they who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven! 11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you and persecute you and shall say all manner of evil against you, falsely, for My sake. 12 Rejoice and be exceedingly glad! For great is your reward in Heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets who were before you. (Matthew 5:10 to 12)

For ten and one half years Neela Chandra Sekhar, our beloved Evangelist of Yahuah Hayah, has represented Faith Harvest Israel as a bible-based ministry to the twelve churches he had established in the poor villages around his home in the city of Guntur in the state of Andhra Pradesh in the country of India! And in that process Brother Neela has spoken for Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM), as His words and truth are found in His Holy Bible, as spoken by Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ), His beloved "Word" (John 1:1) and "only begotten Son"! (John 3:16)

Our beloved Brother Sekhar has rendered this service to all these churches full time, not taking time out to work in any other trade or business; and in doing that he gave up the position he had as a catechist in the Catholic Church, in which he had been supported and given a house in which to shelter himself, his wife and two children!

Brother Sekhar's reward for rendering that faithful service has now been to be labeled as a "fraud" by Western Union, the financial institution that has provided transfer of funds service worldwide, their having disregarded all testimony given by myself to establish Brother Sekhar's legitimacy and honored position as Faith Harvest Israel's beloved Evangelist!

When you meet people determined to accuse another regardless of all testimony to the contrary, you know you are looking at servants of Satan dedicated to doing their worst against Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s servants by foul means at all costs! But they do that at great cost to themselves! For Yahuah loves His children and takes the part of His faithful servants among them, when they are reviled and persecuted and when "men ... say all manner of evil against" them, falsely, for Yahuah's sake!

I have been using bank wire transfers, since learning of Western Union's service to Satan, which of course means nothing to Western Union! But Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s handling of Western Union will mean something to them, when He gets through letting them know what He thinks of children of His who falsely dishonor any faithful servant of His!

Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s commandment through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) through Moses reads: "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor!" (Exodus 20:16); and His curses upon those who break any commandment of His keep getting more frightful, the longer His child fails to repent of his wrong doing! He wrote, through Yeshua, through Moses:

If ye will not for all this hearken unto Me but walk contrary unto Me, Then I will walk contrary unto you, also, in fury! And I, even I, will chastise you seven times, for your sins. (Leviticus 26:27 and 28)

So, when people accuse you falsely for your Creator's sake, know that the One Who created all and is the King over it is well able to take your part and deal with your neighbor's sin against you, until he either repents or goes into eternity where there is "wailing and gnashing of teeth"! (Matthew 13:42) And I would not wish that eventuality upon anyone!

In giving His warning about bearing false witness against one's neighbor, Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) spoke through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) of such people's having "so persecuted they the prophets who were before you"; so one's feeling the sting of that treatment is nothing new under the sun. Satan's servants have been at this kind of thing for a long time!And why is that?

Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) created through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) all that is! And He did that by speaking His word, which authorized ha Kodesh Ruach to clothe it with the amazing splendor and detail that we see all around us. And, when He created us, His beloved children, He taught us to speak the word that also authorizes His Holy Spirit to move in behalf of the one who has spoken a word believing in its power to produce the desired result! (Mark 11:22 to 24)

So in hating Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) and all His children, Satan deliberately speaks that which is false, to cause ha Kodesh Ruach to create that which is violent and destructive! But Satan has no dominion by which to make his word come true! So he must use the dominion of Yahuah's children to do His evil work; and getting them to bear false witness is part of Satan's work to destroy Yahuah's creation! And we are a part of that creation.

But the same limitation applies, when we find ourselves to be a victim of false witness. Satan may have used servants of his to speak against us; but how we handle that false witness makes a big difference in whether or not the false picture portrayed becomes a reality! Because, when someone has accused us falsely, we can recoil with dismay at such treatment and accept as true the fact that someone has hated us that much; or we can speak blessing on the accuser and receive as truth his deliverance, thus rejoicing in response to the accusation rather than getting all bent out of shape over it, the latter reaction of which Satan wants to cause, thus destroying us!

So, one more time, effective use of one's dominion is the answer to any problem, whether it be false witness or any other of the multitude of evils Satan has devised by which to achieve his terrible purposes!

I pray that this information I have given you is true in Yahuah'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 reverse the effects of false witness to be a blessing rather than a curse!

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 effective use of their dominion enables them to achieve!

I pray that Yahuah 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!
