A Recap of Sabbath Services at the Great House of Yahweh…
If you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the publicans do the same? Therefore, become perfect, just as your Father Who is in heaven is perfect. (Mattithyah 5:47-48)
On this twenty-first day of the Omer, we heard from our Teacher, Yisrayl Hawkins.
Underscoring Yisrayl’s sermon today are the overwhelming negative effects of…
1. Overuse and misuse of the Internet
2. Toxic effect of chemically laden crops, after prolonged drought conditions, upon both humans and animals
Skimming through an article from the FFA Organization (Future Farmers of America), Yisrayl explains a rise in diseases from animals to humans via previously chemically treated crops (pesticides, fertilizers, etc.) affected by drought. Under such conditions, nitrites, which ordinarily provide essential nutrients to plants, accumulate to toxic levels. Having witnessed, firsthand, the painful death of a cow, Pastor reminds us of the Scripture that states mankind would be cursed from the earth.
Yisrayl expounds on Yahshua’s words from Mattithyah 5:47-48 “greeting only our brothers,” which he clarifies, stating it means more than our flesh and blood relatives but rather our friends and those who are like-minded.
In order to help us understand, Yisrayl covers several points…
• Yahshua is our High Priest. He will never die. We do not have to worry about priests dying off, leaving us without teachers. To that end, Yahshua has the two-edged sword and Yahweh established Seven Works to guard the way to the Tree of Life. This Last Days’ Work reaches out to the world with the Message of the Kingdom – it fulfills Yahshua’s words as we greet (salute, KJV) which means teach.
• By means of an example, Yisrayl reminds us of the Prophet Samuyl. Samuyl fulfilled the obligations of a righteous priest, but his sons did not. If a priest does not fulfill his obligations, if he does not extend himself on behalf of others, he may bring discouragement to those who are not scripturally founded to the extent that they may fall. Ultimately, everyone has a choice, but we should endeavor to encourage others on to righteous works and be ready to teach.
• Remember, to receive an answer we are to “ask at Abel,” for this is the means that Yahweh employs to guard the way to the Tree of Life. Yisrayl asks us to recall the fact that the world has been subject to thousands of Coptic Catholic priests and their unlawful influences, including the eating of swine’s flesh, which perverts the human mind (wrong micro-organisms entering the brain = confusion). Pastor tells us to guard that way – we have that two-edged sword, which is great knowledge, and we ought to long to teach others.
• The Internet can be a negative influence upon minds that are already weakened due to past generations affected by sinful lives as well as our current damaged food supply. Parents should put forth an effort to guard their children and keep them safe from Internet pitfalls, and children should adhere to their parents and appreciate their efforts to guard them from harm rather than scorn them and rebel. Pastor wisely asks us to consider him looking over our shoulder as we browse the web. Would we quickly click off in embarrassment or shame? Furthermore, he gives a warning that a person can cut himself or herself off from Yahweh with inappropriate/unlawful Internet use.
• “A word to the wise,” says Pastor, as he tells us to listen closely to the sermons and protect the rainbow. He reminds us that Yahshua has 2,000 years of use of his subconscious mind. Yahshua has placed the rainbow over Yisrayl in both the clouds and the sash. We ought to rejoice in the rainbow that represents the work of the House of Yahweh and our long journey from the fiery furnace to perfection (the four colors of Pastor’s rainbow sighting).
• When we go out among people, we should strive to be righteous examples, knowing that we should never take a break from Yahweh’s Laws. Stand fast. Be ready to teach.
We conclude with Pastor’s words, saying that Satan is using everything she has to pull us out of The House of Yahweh. We would be like Satan’s harlots, if we deny Yahweh, Yahshua, and Yisrayl in these days. If we only greet our like-minded friends, what more are we doing than others? This great question deserves thought.
Proverbs 12:11… He who tills his land will be satisfied with food, but he who chases rainbows has no understanding.
We bring to remembrance, Yisrayl’s teachings from Genesis 2:15. We understand that Yahweh has given us a job to guard and keep both the physical and spiritual food. Therefore, we must also guard our minds and not fall prey to empty foolishness and vanity by chasing after the ways of Satan’s world.
