“For I am the LORD who brought you up from the land of Egypt to be your God; thus you shall be holy, for I am holy.” Leviticus 11:45.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:
First you drink the milk of the Word, and as you go deeper you eat the meat of the Word, and as you are sanctified, renewed, and transformed (metamorphosis) by the Word you suck the sweet nectar of the Word, the honey from the rock. Not what tickles your ears from worldly godless philosophies, but what goes into your heart and causes you to repent to renewal of life.
Examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good; abstain from every form of evil. 1 Thessalonians 5:21-22.
Go for the gold. What is the gold? Holiness. In the plans for the earthly Tabernacle that represented the heavenly realities that I gave to Moses on the holy mountain, everything in the Holy place and the Holy of Holies was gold—the golden boards, the golden Ark of the Covenant, the gold Mercy seat, the gold cherubim, the golden altar of incense, the golden table of the bread of the presence, and the gold lampstand.
And the cry in Heaven is “Holy, Holy, Holy.” That is the cry that bubbles up from the hearts of all in Heaven as they see Me. Thrice Holy.
For you it is holy in spirit, holy in soul, and holy in body. And this is renewal of youth.
Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass. 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24.
Holy is free of every encumbrance of sin. Holy is whole in every area of your life, there are no dark or hidden corners in which there is no light. Holiness is living in My light. For in My light, you see light. Holiness is the clear eye that is the lamp of the body and lights up your entire being. It is a sound spirit-controlled mind that directs your soul and body. It is where your thoughts are, either above where Christ is seated at My right hand in the Light or below where the devil crawls feeding on dirt in the dark.
Godliness is holiness. The holiness of godliness comes through consecration. Consecration—set apart as anointed for My calling and plan for your life. Not a life ruined and stained by sin where your end is far worse than when you began.
You see this in Judas, Jesus stated it would have been better for him if he had never been born. What a terrible outcome of what could have been one of the most honored, privileged and holy of lives in My service, a disciple, friend, and herald of the Messiah and a light to the people as a sharer of good news.
I cannot give what is holy to dogs or cast My pearls before swine. Dogs are those who do not believe and have spirits that are dead to Me and alive to sin. They are dwellers in darkness and nothing fruitful is produced by their lives. It is not that the light is not there for them, but they love darkness better than light and they become withered branches good only for the fire because they refuse the invitation to attach to the vine in Christ. They refuse the light. They scorn it and persecute those in the light. They profane the holy.
This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But he who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God. John 3:19-21.
Do not be like them, do not be pulled in by their persuasive speech and lustful ways. They may appear as intellectuals and academics but they are fools. The fool says in his heart there is no God. The fool loves to display what he thinks but it is not My thoughts. My thoughts are higher but I share them with you by My Word.
How do you become holy, holy, holy like Me? I made you on the day I created man in My image and according to My likeness and I am holy. My holiness emanates from Me as radiant glory. And when you are holy, you emanate light and glory as well. Like Jesus did and he could not escape notice wherever He went. Holiness is noticeable, it is not a light under a bushel basket, it shines on the lampstand for all in the house.
Jesus is the radiance of My glory and the exact representation of My nature, which is holy. Hebrews 1:3. There is no darkness in Me at all.
You become holy by sanctification and consecration. Thrice holy.
First, your spirit is born again from above by the imperishable seed of My living and enduring Word. I take out your stony heart and give you a living heart and pour My Spirit in your heart.
Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will be careful to observe My ordinances. Ezekiel 36:25-27.
Second, I implant My Word in your heart by your hearing, reading, speaking, and meditating on My Word. And if you receive and cultivate My Word it will save your soul (your mind, will, and emotions). This is renewing your mind by which you are transformed to My image and likeness, you are sanctified by My Word which is truth. Sanctified and set apart as HOLY, HOLY, HOLY.
Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth. John 17:17.
And third, by not only hearing, reading, speaking, and meditating on My Word but also doing My Word in your mind (thoughts), words (releasing good or bad), and your body (actions). All these are made holy in continuing in, guarding, and keeping My Word.
Therefore, putting aside all filthiness and all that remains of wickedness, in humility receive the Word implanted, which is able to save your souls. But prove yourselves doers of the Word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves. James 1:21-22.
Moses spent his days and nights in receiving, transmitting, writing, obeying, and following My Word and the result was his face was radiant and his body filled with youthful vigor and his eyesight undimmed at 120 years old. He walked in the truth.
Beloved, I desire that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers. For I was very glad when brethren came and testified to your truth, that is, how you are walking in truth. I have no greater joy than this, to hear of my children walking in the truth. 3 John 1:2-4.
Moses witnessed and was part of the signs and wonders I worked for My people in My holiness. He sang out in praise, “Who is like You among the gods, O LORD? Who is like You, majestic in holiness, awesome in praises, working wonders?” Exodus 15:11
And My Word also made Moses skillful in constructing the amazing structure and furnishings of My Tabernacle, his consecration of the priests, his governing of a large and numerous people I was forming into a nation, judging the matters brought to him by the people, and setting up a judicial system. He also established My laws, statutes, and ordinances for the new nation, as he set Me above all as their judge, lawmaker, King, and God. And all was directed to and based upon holiness.
Now then, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be My own special treasure among all the peoples, for all the earth is Mine; and you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation. Exodus 19:5-6.
And now, you who are born again and are the body of Christ in the world, the Church, you are called to be holy.
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; for you once were not a people, but now you are the people of God; you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy. 1 Peter 2:9-10.
My divine power by My Spirit in you has granted to you everything you need for life and godliness, which is holiness. And it comes through the true knowledge of who I am, for I called you by My own glory and holiness. And I have granted to you in Christ My precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of My divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust. What are these promises? My Covenant Names, the promises signed in My Covenant Name of the One who is, who was and who is to come, LORD, YHWH (יהוה), which is My memorial Name forever. The LORD your sanctifier, the LORD your healer, the LORD your righteousness, the LORD your provider, the LORD your Shepherd, the LORD your peace, the LORD your refuge, the LORD your helper, the LORD your deliverer, the LORD your maker, the LORD your savior, the LORD your redeemer, and the LORD of Hosts. All My family, those who are born again from above as My children, has My Name. I initiated Covenant with you, so you have My Name, all of it and all the Covenant Names of Jesus as well, for you enter into Covenant with Me by being in Covenant with Jesus. In Him you are in His Covenant with Me. And in Him you are HOLY, blameless and beyond reproach.
And you have the HOLY Spirit in and on you when you are born again and then baptized by Jesus in the Holy Spirit. For He came to baptize you in the Holy Spirit and fire. And fire burns away every impurity until what is left is solid gold. Go for the gold.
Do you not know that you are a temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If any man destroys the temple of God, God will destroy him, for the temple of God is holy, and that is what you are. 1 Corinthians 3:16-17.
Holiness befits My house and that is who you are. You are the temple of My Holy Spirit, joined with Me in Jesus you are one spirit with Me. You are holy, sanctified, set apart, so glorify Me in your spirit, soul, and body. Live pure. And that is living holy. There should be no uncleanness in your house.
How can a young man keep his way pure? By keeping it according to Your Word. Psalm 119:9.
Your Word is very pure, therefore Your servant loves it. Psalm119:140.
Lust, wickedness, obscene talk, malicious thoughts and words, blasphemy, anger, bitterness, offense, fear, anxiety, envy, strife—all these will age you and render you fruitless. Do not live your short life on earth with days filled with these things. For this life determines your place in eternal life and your rewards.
Watch yourselves, that you do not lose what we have accomplished, but that you may receive a full reward. 2 John 1:8.
It is My joy to reward you and to be your great reward.
I told Abraham, then Abram, “Do not fear, Abram, I am a shield to you; Your very great reward.” Genesis 15:1. And how did I tell him to walk? “I am God Almighty; walk before Me, and be blameless. I will establish My covenant between Me and you, and I will increase you exceedingly.” Genesis 17:1-2.
Walk with Me. And where do I walk? The Highway of Holiness. And I invite you who are redeemed to do the same, for Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life, you only come to Me through Him, for He took all your sins and made you HOLY before Me.
A highway will be there, a roadway, and it will be called the Highway of Holiness. The unclean will not travel on it, but it will be for him who walks the Way, And fools will not wander on it. No lion will be there, nor will any vicious beast go up on it; these will not be found there. But the redeemed will walk there, and the ransomed of the LORD will return and come with joyful shouting to Zion, with everlasting joy upon their heads. They will find gladness and joy, and sorrow and sighing will flee away. Isaiah 35:8-10.
I love you. Be holy and you will be happy. And a cheerful heart does good like a medicine.
That, in reference to your former manner of life, you lay aside the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit, and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and put on the new self, which in God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth. Ephesians 4:22-24.
