A Recap of Sabbath Services at the Great House of Yahweh…
The Prophet Malakyah (Malachi) spoke of Yahweh’s Priests, “For the priest’s lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the Law at his mouth for he is the messenger of Yahweh of hosts.” Today, knowledgeable Priests in Yahweh’s House do their jobs well and they speak words of life.
Five Teachers of Righteousness presented Yahweh’s Word today and the congregation delighted in their exhortations, and admonishments. We see our walk today: how far we have come, what we must continue to do, and where our efforts will take us – full family members in Yahweh’s soon coming Kingdom.
Future Priest Deacon Tawakyah rehearsed Pastor’s words from, “Why Aren’t Your Prayers Answered Today.” Using the Study Guide, he asks why millions of prayers go unanswered, and then provides the explanation. Reading from Isayah and Revelation, Deacon Tawakyah draws our attention to the facts: people are deceived, they pray to gods, they do not search the scriptures for answers, and their behavior is sinful. “What must I do?”… 1) Repent, 2) Confess, 3) Baptism, and 4) Conversion.
Future Priest Deacon Yaaqob spoke on “Health Yahweh’s Way,” by Yisrayl Hawkins. Leaving no doubt, as to what we should and should not eat, he encourages us to read Deuteronomy 28 on blessings and curses, reminding us that a curse causeless simply does not occur. Unlawful priests, who eat swine’s flesh, are also leading people to consume the rodent by saying that the capybara is edible. Deacon Yaaqob points out foolish excuses for ignoring clean and unclean food laws – only for Jews, the Savior cleansed the pig, having an iron stomach, and as long as I pray over it first are lame reasons that simply to do stand up to scripture. To the skeptical: Read Leviticus chapter 11 and a final note to pour coke over raw pork, along with a couple of pictures of worms should have anyone, with a thinking mind, reconsidering their objections.
Great Kohan Mattithyah’s sermon was in part a personal testimony – a witness to dedicated years of work and study by the Last Days’ Witness, Yisrayl Hawkins. Many among the congregation could easily attest to the love and zeal that Yisrayl has shown for Yahweh, His House, His Laws, and His people over his years of service. His admirable work ethic and strict avoidance of time-wasting activities are well-known characteristics held by our beloved Pastor.
The Kohan drew many chuckles as he recounted events that led to his conversion from Christian deception to Scriptural Truth. It is an undeniable fact that most every person, called to Yahweh’s House, learned more in one Feast than previously learned over their entire lives. With several encouraging statements, Kohan Mattithyah urges us onward to overcome, and become trustworthy, loyal servants.
Next, we heard from the Great Kohan Levi who spoke on becoming acceptable to Yahweh. Reading excerpts from the 13th Book of Yisrayl and the 2/2014 newsletter the Kohan helps us to understand the meaning of the word acceptable discussing the works of Abel, the first Righteous Priest and the works of Yisrayl. Genesis 1:26 presents Yahweh’s Plan of authority; the work of Yahweh’s Servants (Abel then and Abel now) is to prepare a people as an acceptable offering to Yahweh, something Cain did not do, nor do religious leaders today.
The Kohan gave us three steps to becoming acceptable to Yahweh 1) practice righteousness, 2) come into unity with everything the House of Yahweh teaches 3) be obedient by following instructions. He encourages us to study what The House of Yahweh offers and to set limits on Internet use – much of which is a futile waste of precious time. With proper study, we gain knowledge, which is acceptable to Yahweh.
Our last speaker was Great Kohan Michayl and for those who enjoy a study in the Book of Revelation, this sermon was very informative. His topic, “When seven works are not enough” brings history and prophecy together to reveal the Holy Roman Empire in Revelation 17:7-18.
The history goes back to 1929 when Italy and the Roman Church signed the Lateran Treaty settling the “Roman Question.” It was a political treaty between Italy and the Vatican in which Italy, with Rome as capital, became the governing state and the Vatican, came under Papal sovereignty. In 1934, Yisrayl Hawkins was born, marking the start of the Last Generation.
The prophecy from the Book of Revelation, “… five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come … the beast that was, and is not, indeed he is the eighth, and is of the seven …”
Providing ample data and visuals, Kohan Michayl goes into detail connecting dates, names, and events that have brought us to the eighth of the seven – Pope Francis.
We conclude the review paraphrasing Kohan Mattithyah’s words of encouragement, Yahweh believes in you, and He wants you to be a permanent pillar in His House and never go out of it
