By the word of Yahuwah were the heavens made,
And all the host of them by the breath of His mouth.

(See Psalm 33:6.)

The word of Yahuwah contains infinite power.  His very breath itself holds all the power that called the universe into existence!  Scripture opens a view of the primordial past, at the point Yahuwah came to earth to form it and create life upon it.

In the beginning . . . [Elohim] created the heaven and the earth.  And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.  And the spirit of . . . [Elohim] moved upon the face of the waters.  (Genesis 1:1, 2, KJV)

The word "spirit" comes from the Hebrew word, rûwach (#7307), and means, literally, breath.  This is the same breath that transformed Adam from a big mud pie into a living, breathing soul, made in the image of his Maker.  "And . . . [Yahuwah Elohim] formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul."  (Genesis 2:7, KJV)

The word hâyâh, or BE!, from which comes the divine name, Yahuwah, was spoken throughout the Creation of the world.  While the English renders the divine command, "Let there be light" (Genesis 1:3), the Hebrew is much more direct:

Light . . . BE!  (The release of creative power to do the thing commanded.)

Light was.  (The statement of fact after the act has been performed.)

Both "be" and "was" are state of being verbs.  In the Hebrew, the same word, hâyâh, is used to express both the command and the fulfillment of the command:

Light . . . HÂYÂH!

Light hâyâh.

The use of this powerful word, the root of Yahuwah's own divine name, continues throughout the account of Creation.

Gathered waters . . . HÂYÂH!  (BE!)

Gathered waters . . . hâyâh (were).

Dry ground . . . HÂYÂH!  (BE!)

Dry ground hâyâh (was).

Lights in the heavens . . . HÂYÂH!  (BE!)

Lights in the heavens hâyâh (were).

And evening hâyâh (be) and morning hâyâh (be).

The indescribable beauty contained in the name of the all-powerful, all-knowing, everywhere-present eternal Father is that it contains unlimited, omnipotent power.  It was for this reason that Yahuwah chose to call Himself the name that He did.  Indeed, it is the only word that could be His name.

There is purpose in everything the Father does and the purpose He had in calling Himself Yahuwah was to inspire faith in the hearts of His children.  Faith is a word that is often heard in religious circles.  We sing "Trust and obey!" and we encourage each other to "just have faith."  But what is faith?  What does the word mean?  Scripture states that "without faith it is impossible to please" Yahuwah.  (Hebrews 11:6)  So what is this word that is spoken so often, but rarely, if ever, defined?

The dictionary defines faith as:

Belief; the assent of the mind to the truth of what is declared by another, resting on his authority and veracity [truthfulness], without other evidence; the judgment that what another states or testifies is the truth.  . . . The assent of the mind to the truth of a proposition advanced by another.4

Faith is not some mysterious something which some people are born with and others are not!  In fact, true faith is a gift.  Scripture states that Yahuwah "has dealt to each one a measure of faith."  (Romans 12:3, NKJV)  "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of your selves: it is the gift of . . . [Yahuwah]."  (Ephesians 2:8, KJV)  While it is likely in the latter verse that Paul was referring specifically to the fact that salvation is not of yourselves, it is a gift of Yahuwah, the point is similar.  The ability to trust in Yahuwah for salvation is itself a divine gift.

The Saviour provided a working example of faith.

Now when . . . [the Saviour] had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to Him, pleading with Him, saying, ". . . [Master], my servant is lying at home paralyzed, dreadfully tormented."  And . . . [the Saviour] said to him, "I will come and heal him." 

Yahushua and Roman guard The centurion answered and said, ". . . [Master], I am not worthy that You should come under my roof.  But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed.  For I also am a man under authority, having soldiers under me.  And I say to this one, 'Go,' and he goes; and to another, 'Come,' and he comes; and to my servant, 'Do this,' and he does it."

When . . . [the Saviour] heard it, He marveled, and said to those who followed, "Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!  And I say to you that many will come from east and west, and sit down with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven.  But the sons of the kindom will be cast out into outer darkness.  There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth." 

Then . . . [He] said to the centurion, "Go your way; and as you have believed, so let it be done for you."  And his servant was healed that same hour."  (Matthew 8:5-13, NKJV)

The centurion was worried about his servant.  He came to the Saviour and asked Him to heal his servant.  When the Saviour replied, "I will come and heal him," something in the centurion's answer led the Messiah to marvel and exclaim, "That is faith - faith the likes of which I have not found even in Israel!"

What was it that the Son of Yahuwah identified as faith?

When the centurion heard, "I will come and heal him," his immediate response was, "I am not worthy for you to come to my home.  Just speak the word and he will be healed."  He then explained that he recognized the authority with which the Son of Yahuwah spoke when he added, "I myself am a soldier under authority which I obey and I have soldiers under my authority who obey me.  I tell one to do something and he does it!  You do not need to come and heal my servant.  You have the authority to just speak the word and he will be well."   

"THAT is faith," the Saviour marveled.

Faith is simply taking Yahuwah at His word.  It is the agreement of the mind that what He has said is true because of who He is, without any other evidence.  Faith is the acceptance of the mind that what Yahuwah has promised, He will do because of the power He has at His command, without needing to see or feel any proof that He will keep His promise.

smiling boy A child who has been raised in a safe environment where Mama always meets his needs, has complete and utter faith that his mother will give him a drink of water when he asks for one.  When Mother says something, he believes what she says because past actions have proven that she is trustworthy.  He trusts her because of who she is: she is his mother.  She has the power and the authority to give him what he needs, and her past actions have proven that she will always help when he asks for help.

As children of the heavenly Father, we are to have complete and utter faith in Him.  Children have more faith in the word of their earthly parents than adults do in the word of their heavenly Father.  This was the point the Messiah was making when He said, "Unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven."  (Matthew 18:3, NKJV)

A child who is struggling to carry a burden too heavy for her, asks her father for help in perfect confidence that he, in his superior strength, will help her lift and carry it.  The trials and difficulties of daily life are meant to lead us to call upon our heavenly Father for help and trust in Him to keep His promises.

It is these very difficulties that bring us to the audience chamber of the Most High, to seek counsel of the One who is infinite in wisdom.  He loves to have us seek Him; He loves to have us trust Him and believe His word.  If we had no perplexities, no trials, we would become self-sufficient and lifted up in ourselves.  The true saints will be purified, and made white and tried.5

George Mueller, a true faith warrior, once said, "Faith is the assurance that the things which . . . [Yahuwah] said in His word are true; and that . . . [He] will act according to what He has said in His Word.  This assurance, this reliance on . . . [Yahuwah's] Word, this confidence, is Faith."

"Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of . . . [Yahuwah]."  (Romans 10:17, NKJV)  It was to inspire faith (and trust) in His children, that Yahuwah gave His name.  His name itself is a promise that He will BE everything you need in order to be saved.  When His name is combined with a need, it becomes a promise that your need will be fulfilled. 

Are you sick?  His promise to you is: I AM your Healer.  BE well!  (Exodus 15:26)

Are you afraid?  I AM your Refuge.  BE safe!  (Psalm 9:9)

Are you weak?  I AM your Strength.  BE strong!  (Psalm 27:1)

Are you overwhelmed with difficulties?  I AM a Man of War.  BE delivered!  (Exodus 15:3)

Are you in danger?  I AM your Shield.  BE protected!  (Psalm 3:3)

Are you alone?  I AM your Kinsman/Redeemer.  Be cherished!  (Isaiah 43:14)

Have you been taken advantage of and left in need?  I AM your Provider Who Sees.  BE provided for!  (Genesis 22:14)

Do you feel alone?  I AM Desirous of Your Love.  BE loved!  (Exodus 34:14)

For anything and everything He has promised, those who live in humble obedience may ask for and gratefully claim.  Scripture contains 360 composite names - names in which the divine name, combined with a need, becomes a promise.

Call upon the name of Yahuwah!  Claim the divine promises!  He is waiting with a longing heart to help you.  When you combine the name of Yahuwah with your need, and you let your faith grasp the promise, He will keep His Word.  He will BE all that you need Him to be.

Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of . . . [Yahuwah] . . . as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, . . . by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.  (2 Peter 1:2-4, NKJV)

Wait patiently for . . . [Yahuwah].  He will be to you a present help in every time of need.  . . . [Yahwuah] is good.  Praise His Holy name.  . . . [Elohim] loves to have us trust Him, loves to have us have confidence in His promises.  Only believe, and we shall see the workings of . . . [the Almighty].6

Yahuwah, the great and almighty I AM will BE all that you could ever need Him to be under any and every circumstance.  Trust all to Him as unto a loving Heavenly Father.  He will never fail you nor forsake.  He is safe to trust!  Call upon Him today and rest in His love.

“When we walk to the edge of all the light we have and take the step into the darkness of the unknown, we must believe that one of two things will happen. There will be something solid for us to stand on or we will be taught to fly.”
