|Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: No man cometh unto the Father, but by me. JOHN 14:6 (KJV)|
A CALL FOR HOLINESS
What is Holiness?
The word Holiness in Greek transliteration is hagios . hagios means to be sacred, holy, different from the world, Hagios also implies - to be set apart for the Lord, reverend unto God. The Hebrew word for Holy is qodesh - also means to be set apart , separated.
The word 'Holy' addresses God himself who is the Spirit of the most high God, who is HOLY, transcendent, absolute, boundless, separate, set apart from everything he's created, and Sacred. He is the Holy Spirit , Jesus,. They are one ,fully God, all three having the Glory and the Power of God abounding exceedingly
Holiness is the state of being pure, perfect, sinless and absolutely dedicated to the one and only true God, in terms of abstraining from worldly lust and sin by the help of the Holy Spirit. The word "perfect" in Greek is translated "whole" or "complete" ; hence when the Lord called us to be perfect he was actually commanding us be whole and complete, as we were before the fall. Whole meaning, the Lord has come to heal is people by the removal of darkness from our lives; and where we were separated from him, he has come, to change and transform our lives, and to make man whole and complete in him again. when sin took a hold of man due to the rebellion, darkness took precedent and consequently led men captive. And Where we were broken due to that fall, he has now come to heal all our brokeness.
Isaiah 61:1 reiterates this truth The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
1 John 2:16 decribes the condition of man For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
Matthew 15:19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies.
To be holy unto the Lord is a great redemptive work of God, who, in his mercies sent is only begotten Son to die for our sins, so that man who is undone, defiled by sin, wetched and lost, can be made Holy.
His son Jesus came to die for our sins, so that his blood would wash away all our sins. but first we have to acknowledge our sin and confess it. Note, We cannot be holy by our own works of righteousness. Our righteousness must be of God.
Isaiah 64:6 declares But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
John 15:3 Now ye are clean through the Word which I have spoken unto you.
Acts 3:19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.
Hebrew 12:14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: Holiness is the result of having the right relationship with God. The Lord's Holy Spirit which dwells in the believer will help our infirmities, he will lead us into all truth, and keep us from falling back into sin.
Without Holiness it is impossible to please God
The Holy Sovereign God of heaven and earth the creator of all living things is calling all nations of the world to serve him; for he alone is God and Saviour of all mankind. The whole duty of man is that we love him, with all our hearts and with all understanding, with all our strength, and with all our soul in Jesus name.(MARK 12:33)
Peter 1:13-16 declares Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ 14 As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance . 15 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation. 16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
Isaiah 6:3 And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For the Lord is able to keep us from falling and to present us faultless, holy before the presence of his glory.
Calling all Pastors, Prophets, Bishops, Missionaries, Apostles, Evangelist, Teachers of the Word, and all the Saints of God, that I may edify, remind, and encourage you through the leading of the Holy Spirit, that we who are Holy unto the Lord, are God's royal subjects. Saints of the most high God as we know it God won't except anything less than Holiness. Hence we will continue to abide with him in all vigilency.
The enemies plot is to try to bombard Christians with the cares of the world, to take them off the track of light; But, we who are called in Jesus Name will not allow this to happen, for we will stand faithful, vigilant, diligent, watching and praying throughout, for all generations. For we are more than Conquerers. We shall overcome.
Know this Saints of God, we know we can stand Holy all the way, HOW? We have the power to stand against devils. The Lord has given us the Power and the authority to stand. Luke 10:19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
For those that have not yet surrendered their lives to the Lord Jesus. God knows our state before we come to him, his tender mercies towards his children has prepared a way for us to approach him, at his mercy seat. Therefore man can approach God for the reason of repentance, and to be sorry for their sins, also for curosity and to seek him for the truth.HALLELUJAH!
For those people who have not yet surrended to the Lord, the Lord is calling you to come to him, though your sins be as scarlet he will forgive you, though they be as crimson they shall be as wool. The Lord loves you, and he will accept you, as you are. No matter what your condition may be, He his ready to forgive you, to heal your life, to transform you, to heal your heart, to restore you for his Glory.
JESUS LOVES AND CARES FOR YOU. HE DIED FOR ALL OUR SINS. SHALOM
Put on the whole armour of God that we will be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. Ephesians 6:12
Once your mind is made up to obey God, no matter what your going through, and your Goal is Light, then your ready to roll.
The Enemies of the cross do tremble when they know you ain't standing with them, INSTEAD YOUR GOING AGAINST THEM, BY THE POWER OF THE ALMIGHTY GOD.
OH GLORY TO GOD!!!
1 Peter 2:9 declares But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light. He won,t settle for second best, he's counting on us all to absolutely obey his Word. He's coming for a ready and prepared people who are washed in the blood of the lamb. Jesus is that lamb of God.
In order to enter the spiritual realm of God's Holy courts, we need to know what is required.
The Lord loves when we worship him, but he wants us to worship him in the beauty of Holiness. 1 Chronicles 16:29 declares Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come before him: worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.
Psalms 96:9 O worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness: fear before him, all the earth.
Please see scripture ref: Psalms 24:3-4 Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
