God's Creation of Substance
For ever, O Lord, Thy Word is settled in heaven.
(Psalm 119 verse 89.)

In the beginning -- Alef Tav -- God created!  Out of sheer necessity, let us labor together past our fears that are bound in the flesh of unbelief, and now let's venture into the realm of the Spirit of Yahweh Almighty God, and into the knowledge of the Perfect Love of our Creator God.   We can begin to explore the substance of the strength of Yahweh God's unfailing Word of TRUTH, that challenges our own questioning little faith.  When we look into the scriptures within the book of beginnings, called Genesis, we see in every instance within creation, except one, that the  Infinite God Almighty spoke the dynamics of His Word to His subject within His beginning creation to bring forth exactly as He Commanded, and His Word brought forth His Command in absolute obedience.  The one exception occurred during the latter part of Yahweh God's sixth day when Elohim personally formed Adam out of the dust of the earth and then Yahweh God breathed His Breath of LIFE into Adam's nostrils, and Adam became a living soul. (See Creation of Man .)

From Infinity, the Infinite Lord Yahweh God Almighty brought forth His universal creation within six of HIS encapsulated days of timeless Eternity.  For it is written: One Day is LIKE a Thousand Years and a Thousand Years is LIKE One Day.  Timeless Infinity is not understood by finite man and the Likeness of Infinity is not definitive in the likeness of one day or the likeness of a thousand years. The thoughts of Timeless Infinity will exhaust the small mind of man.

In the beginning -- Alef Tav -- Yahweh God created the fabric of time!

In His creation of the fabric of time, Yahweh God, knew that sin would come into as of yet an uncreated world and that His creation of Adam would succumb to the desires of sin.  Nevertheless, Yahweh God's full creation would be very good, for in the end of days, it would meet the fullness of Yahweh God desires to defeat sin and death at its source.  The prophet Isaiah prophesized: O Lord Yahweh our God, other lords besides you have had dominion over us: Therefore, You have come upon them and destroyed them and made the memory of them to perish. (See fullness Isaiah 26 verse 13 thru 14.) But we speak the wisdom of Yahweh God in a mystery, even the hidden Wisdom, which Yahweh God ordained before the world, for our glory. For none of the princes of this world knew; for had they known of it, they would not have crucified the Lord of Glory, Jesus the Christ of Yahweh God.

2nd Day of God's creation.
And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so
And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

3rd Day of God's creation.
And God (Yahweh Elohim) said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered into one place, and let the dry land appear and it was so.  And Yahweh God  called the dry land Earth, and the gathering of the waters He called seas, and saw that it was good.  And Elohim said: Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
(Genesis 1 verse 11.)

5th Day.
And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.  And God created great whales, and every living creature that moves, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
(Genesis 1 verse 20 thru 21.)

6th Day.
And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.
(Genesis 1 verse 24.) And the Lord God formed Man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and Man became a living soul. (Genesis 2 verse 7.)

These scriptures may or may not be remarkable to the finite mind of the sophisticated free thinking man or woman.  At first glance, these scriptures might be dismissed as primitive thinking and not worthy of closer inspection.  However the subtleties of the essence of the TRUTH of Yahweh God are a stumbling block for the evolutionist speculative theories on the origins of life.  Yahweh God is the Infinite God of the living, and as the Origin of all life, He intends for His creation to prosper according to the abundance within His creative Heart.  In Yahweh God's universal creation, all matter and energy is subject to its Creator of Light, for all things are imprinted with the dynamic Power of the Creator's Words in the expanse of His creation.  Therefore, with our subjective reasoning, we postulate that the only Eternal Yahweh God created subject matter, in obedience to the Word of His will, and brought forth life abundantly through Yahweh God's Rhema that is from Yahweh God's goodness of Heart. 

We witness in the simplicity of written scripture that in the specified third and sixth days of the Lord's creation, at His Command, the earth brought forth from expectant elements, the order of plant, and animal species, subject to the creative dynamics of the Almighty's spoken Word.  The same obedience and genesis effect can be said for the fifth day, when the waters also responded to the Lord Yahweh's conforming Word, and brought forth marine life forms, and even birds according to Elohim's Word.  After those creation days within His ordered creation, then all species had their genetic seed within themselves and would reproduce their own kind.

The Genesis Power of Elohim's spoken Word over His created elements to bring forth elemental carbon life forms, is Absolute.  But for that matter, all 'elemental matter' will be whatever Elohim commands or declares it will be.  Again, this is because all atomic matter and energy is impregnated with the creative substance of Elohim's Living Word, and as such, all changeable matter and energy are subject to His Word, engendered by the thoughts of His creative Heart.  The Eternal Yahweh God is Infinite in Power and Light, and the created substance of all things in Yahweh's universe, are pregnant with the genesis potential that is contained within the dynamics of His Infinite Word of TRUTH.  What the Almighty Wills, will come to pass, even as the Holy Word of Yahweh's Holy Will has already come to Be.

We are not moved by the intellectual debates of mankind, for our God is Yahweh God of the living and the living WORD.  Therefore Yahweh is not the god of the dead where there is no formative word to speak. From the beginning of Yahweh's creation, His WORD, the Lamb of God, would come TO BE Yeshua haMashiach, Jesus the Christ the Son of Adam/Man, and IN His Resurrection from His death on the cross, He is alive forever more, by the Living Power of His Father. Yahweh God. (See Luke 20 verse 37 thru 39.)

Man's rebellion into death is silenced within the risen Jesus Christ, the Son of Man, for death is swallowed up in His victory over sin's self idolatrous mutiny.  Now it is to be understood that the Spirit, of the living WORD of GOD, controls all formulated universal substance, and remains Constant in Yahweh God's absolute Communication of Power in the natural, and also in the unseen spiritual realms of His creation.  The evidential effects, of the Word of Yahweh God's Power, are visible to us in the grandeur of the heavens and the earth, nevertheless, it is understandable that finite earthly man cannot begin to fathom the fullness of Yahweh's Word of Infinite Depths, nor plumb the substantial abundance of the heart of Yahweh God:  And so the dimensional nature of the Almighty God within His own infinity cannot be reasoned in the finite mind of earthly man.  For thus says our (Yahweh) God: My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My WAYS.  For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My WAYS higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts". (Isaiah 55 verse 8 thru 9.)

As it is written: The secret things belong to The LORD our God, but the things revealed, belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the Words of His (Yahweh God's) Torah. (Deuteronomy 29 verse 29) The Almighty Yahweh God, just exists from Eternity without the possibility of man's comprehension. For that mater,  Yahweh God's Eternal Word of creation is Constant, and sustains the universe with all of its elemental subject matter being obedient to His WORD of TRUTH.  The universe, even within all of its complexities, is ordered, and it is ordered by Yahweh God with His Perfect WORD that we know as the Lord Jesus Christ. And He (Jesus) arose, and rebuked the wind and said unto the sea: Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. And He (Jesus) said unto His disciples: Why are you so fearful?  How is it that you have no faith?  (Mark 4 verse 38 thru 40.)

Satan certainly understood the power of the Word of Yahweh God that was within Yahweh's Messiah to change matter and energy.  This is evident in written scripture when the devil challenged the Lord Jesus in the desert after the Lord had completed a forty day fast and was hungry.  And when the tempter came to Jesus, he said: If Thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. But Jesus answered and said, It is written, man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word that Proceeds out of the Mouth of (Yahweh) God. (Matthew 4 verse 1 thru 4.)

Do we really live by every Word that proceeds out of the Mouth of Yahweh God?   Should it not be expected that by Godly Faith, solitary matter multiplies at the Lord's spiritual Blessing and Command, even as when Jesus, the Word of Yahweh God, fed the multitude with the two fishes and the five barley loaves?  This took place in Tiberius at the time of the Passover Feast of Unleavened Bread.  Jesus, in seeing the following multitude, tries the faith of his disciples, and asks Philip:  Where shall we buy bread that these may eat?  When Philip reported to the Christ that the money was insufficient, then Andrew said to Jesus. There is a lad here, which has five barley loaves, and two small fishes: But what are they among so many? And Jesus said: Make the men sit down. Now, there was much grass in the place, so the men sat down in number about five thousand. And Jesus took the loaves; and when He had given thanks, (See Setting the Table.) He distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they wanted. When they were filled, He said unto His disciples: Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.  Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said: "This is of a truth: This is the prophet which should come into the world." (John 6 verse 6 thru 14.) (See Deuteronomy 18 verse 18 thru 19.)

The following day, when the people discovered that Jesus was no longer present in Tiberius, they found boats in Tiberius and crossed over the sea to Capernaum in search for the Lord Yeshua/Jesus.  It would appear that this day is the second day of the seven day feast of Unleavened Bread.  We submit for the reader's consideration that this second day, is the day of the Presentation Offering, set in the Feast of the Unleavened Bread, and the Lord Jesus Christ will present Himself to the Jewish people, as the Living Bread that came down from Heaven to be the Son of Man/Adam. Indeed as witnessed by the people who had some understanding: "This is of the Truth: This is the Prophet which should come into the world."

And when they found Jesus on the other side of the sea, they asked Him how it came to be that He was there.  Jesus answered them, saying that they did not seek Him because of the miracles He did, but because they were fully fed with the unleavened barley bread.  The barley bread would have been unleavened because of the Feast of Unleavened Bread. Jesus then tells them they are to seek the free food of the Gift of LIFE that Christ would give to them, for Yahweh God had sealed His Spirit of LIFE IN Christ Jesus. The men made several more inquires of Jesus and He corrects their misunderstandings, primarily concerning the manna, of which they inferred that Moses gave them.

Then Jesus said unto them, Truly, Truly I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but My Father gives you the True Bread from Heaven. For the Bread of God is He which comes down from heaven, and gives LIFE unto the world. Then they said unto Him: Lord, evermore give us this bread. And Jesus said unto them, I AM the Bread of LIFE: He that comes to Me (leaves his former place, and establishes himself with the Lord) shall never hunger; and he that believes on Me shall never thirst.  But I said unto you, that you also have seen Me, and believe not. All that the Father gives to Me shall come to Me; and him that comes to Me I will in no wise cast out. For I came down from heaven, not to do Mine Own Will, but the Will of Him (Yahweh) that sent Me. And this is Yahweh Father's Will which has sent Me, that of all which He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. And this is the Will of Him (Yahweh) that sent Me, that every one which sees the Son, and believes on Him, may have everlasting LIFE: and I will raise him up at the last day. The Jews then murmured at Him, because He said, I AM the Bread which came down from heaven. (John 6 verse 26 thru 41.)

Do you murmur among yourselves and miss the: I AM the Bread that came down from Heaven. For the Word that we teach, is that of Faith IN the Bread of Heaven that came down to earth, that we may eat of His declared unseen flesh, and with faith we are sin dead members  IN the One Body of Christ, and yet by Faith we Live IN the Promise of the LIFE giving Blood of Jesus Christ.

Murmur not among yourselves. No man can come to Me, except the Father, Which has sent Me draw Him, and I will raise him up at the last day. Truly, Truly, I say to you, he that believes on Me has everlasting Life. I AM that Bread of LIFE. Verily Verily, I say unto you: Except you eat the flesh of the Son of Man, and drink His Blood you have no LIFE in you.  (See John 6 verse 41 thru 58.)

Perhaps through the Substance of Faith, it is possible for you to begin to see that from the abundance of the Heart of Yahweh God Almighty that all things in heaven and earth came from Yahweh God, and are subject to the Infinite Bounty within the WORD of His Excellency.  Jesus the Messiah is the Eternal WORD of Yahweh God and IS the beloved Son of His Father Yahweh God Almighty.  The Soul of Christ is the Perfect Essence of His Father's Heart sent, as the Bread of Heaven to earth, to show forth the abundance of Sacrificial Love that is IN the Heart of His Father God.  Although, not seeing or understanding all things, we came to believe in Yahweh God's Great Salvation Gift, because Yahweh God's Love, through His Holy Spirit, first birthed into the thoughts of our hearts the substance of Faith that we might begin to believe in the TRUTH of the Almighty's Word.  For, Yahweh God commends His Love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5 verse 8.) Here in is Love, not that we love God, but that He Loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. (1st John 4 verse 10.)

We initially heard the Good News of God's mercy and forgiveness for mankind's sins through Yahweh Godís ambassadors, whether they be family, friends or strangers.  All of those that were faithful to God were also born of faith in Yahweh Godís only Salvation, through a similar process of witnessing to the TRUTH of Yahweh God's Word of Salvation.  After the new birth of the soul is confirmed through a public confession within the initial purifying baptismal Water into the Body of Jesus Christ, then the Grace of Yahweh God's Spirit of Holiness would continually reveal Yahweh God's Love and Mercy to this new born child. But the purity of that beginning seed of faith, comes from Yahweh God's Perfect Word of Salvation alone.  It is essential that the heart within the mind and the soul of that person, entering into the Grace of Yahweh Godís New Covenant in the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, will be a willing subject responding to Yahweh God's nurturing Holy Spirit of Grace.    It is Yahweh God's Holy Spirit of Grace in Communion that leads us in teaching and nurtures willing minds into all of the essential things, pertaining to the Salvation and Sanctifying Word of Yahweh God. For the Word of Jesus Christ is One TRUTH with the Heart of the Almighty Yahweh God, His Father.  (See Romans 10 verse 8 thru 11.)

Unfortunately, even well meaning theologians, pastors and prophets thinking they are doing Yahweh God a favor, can become rooted in false or cultural doctrines born of the mind of earthly man, and completely miss the Heart of Yahweh God.  If this were not so, then why the confusions, and why are we not all saying the same things about the Bread of LIFE?  If the mind is convinced with the logic of the earthly, then how much more difficult is it to lead leaders, who unknowingly oppose themselves and Yahweh God, into a right understanding that glorifies the Spirit of the Fatherís WORD of TRUTH.  If the leaders of the church are taught, only through the philosophical logic of the mind of the natural man of vanity, then only the finite mind of man will be glorified with false assumptions leading to dead ends. 

The beginning and ending of this logic, has its roots in the Garden of Eden, where we can still hear Satan questioning the integrity of Yahweh God's Word, or attributing false innuendo to Yahweh God's Spirit that only bears the TRUTH.  Biblical knowledge can be very good, but we are not justified by knowledge that is confined to the puffed up mind of earthly man, and does not motivate the heart and soul of the inquirer.  No, it is Yahweh God's Gift of Grace received in the heart of a person, who having been given justifying faith continues to seek after Yahweh God's Salvation WAY, TRUTH and LIFE.  From the beginning of our journey of faith IN Yahweh God, it is Yahweh Father God, Who, by His Holy Spirit of Grace, has drawn us to the Light of His Doctrine of Salvation and Sanctification IN Jesus Christ Alone. (See John 6 verse 43 thru 45.) The Lord Jesus Christ, being the Perfect Love of Yahweh God, obediently came to earth to be born in the flesh of Man/Adam, and was crucified to death for the sin of Adam and thereby the compliant sins of the world.  Yes, even for those repented sins of doctrinal error.  Because of the perfection of Jesus' Love and Obedience to His Father Yahweh God, then Jesus' sacrifice was accepted by Yahweh God and Jesus Christ was resurrected to LIFE in the Power of His Eternal Father. (See John 8 verse 42.)

And so, it is through our living Faith in the WORD of Yahweh God, that in Water Baptism, we sinners, because of our sins of death, are plunged into death within the Body of the innocent Lord Jesus Christ.  As forgetful as we are, we are brought into remembrance of Christ death for our sins when we eat of the Lord's Body given for our sins of death. And now when we drink IN Faith of His Communion Blood then we are washed in the Flood of Christ's LIFE giving Blood that completely absolves sin's condemnation of death.  IN the Living Christ, the believer is  a brand new person, born into the New Covenant Power of Yahweh God's Love, and His Pardon is sealed in the LIFE Blood of His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ.  (See God's Amnesty Program.)

As new born children, when we are asking and seeking for the TRUTH in the Spirit of Yahweh God's WORD, and are persistent in our search, then Yahweh God's Spirit of Holiness, True to His WORD, will provide a necessary answer. (See Matthew 7 verse 7 thru 8.)  As a pertinent example, even though I'm not familiar with the Hebrew or Greek languages, I am a concordant student,  but I only had a superficial understanding of the ineffable Name for Yahweh God, being interpreted in English, as the I AM, that I AM, which comes from the Hebrew, EHEYEH ASHER EHEYEH.  Of course, this is how the Lord acquitted Himself within His indescribable Name to Moses at the burning bush that was not consumed in the fire of the Lord's Presence.  One afternoon, I awoke from a nap, hearing soundly in my spirit, 'I Will Be, what I Will Be'.  Those who understand the languages of Scripture, know that this is the same as the, 'I AM, that I AM'.  For me in my ignorance, it was a Rhema Word of revelation coming forth from Yahweh God's Holy Spirit, which added a greater depth of spiritual knowledge to me and to the intended spirit of these writings.  For your edification and research, let me recommend Names of God in Judaism as they are found in the online Wikipedia.  Also, before our Lord was known in English, as Jesus the Christ, He was called Yeshua haMashiach. (See also if available, the reference on the web, "How the Name of 'Yeshua' became 'Jesus'."
