To him who overcomes, to him I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, and a new name written on the stone which no one knows but he who receives it. Revelation 2:17.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:

The sanctified life is the life of the overcomer, the life of the victor. Only overcomers are in Heaven with Me.

He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. Revelation 3:21.

Of what am I speaking? What is it you must overcome? The same thing that Jesus faced, you must overcome all that would pull you away from My Word. Satan will throw up every trial he can to steal the light from you and plunge you into darkness and there is only way he can do that, and it is the same tactic he used with Adam and Eve that plunged them and all their descendants into darkness. He enticed them into making a decision to disobey My Word and submit to his word.

“These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33.

My Word is your mission, your assignment, and your very life. My Word is light and has no darkness in it. When you let in the light of My Word, which is truth, the darkness cannot overcome it. Light always overcomes darkness. Once you turn on the light in a room there is no more darkness, all is light.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it. John 1:1-5.

There is no evil in My Word. You must not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good for by what a man is overcome, by this he is enslaved. Romans 12:21; 2 Peter 2:19.

You were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light (for the fruit of the Light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth), trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord. Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them; for it is disgraceful even to speak of the things which are done by them in secret. But all things become visible when they are exposed by the light, for everything that becomes visible is light. Ephesians 5:8-13.

I do not want you enslaved, I want you free of all that is evil. And that is why I told Adam NOT to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. A sanctified and fruitful life does not KNOW evil. You can discern it, but never know it as your way of life.

I made you to be an overcomer, to be more than a conqueror. When I am with you, who can be against you? No one and nothing. I am the Most High.

Jesus prayed for you the night He was betrayed at the Passover Seder, and He did not ask Me to take you out of the world but to protect you from the evil one. And how do I do that? By My Word. I sent My Word to heal you and deliver you from all your destructions. It is time you took hold of your life line so you can come out the victor every time and all the time.

The devil is roaming about like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour, that is, to get you to disobey My Word by stealing that Word from you so you cannot take down his lies. He wants to overcome you, but you can easily overcome him. Sin is crouching at your door but you can be its master. Truth puts down any lie. If you will take up My full armor which I give you and stand your ground you will ALWAYS triumph. Never back down. Overcomers overcome.

“Now the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God and the authority of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down, he who accuses them before our God day and night. And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death. Revelation 12:10-11,

This is legal talk. Satan is the accuser, that is, the prosecutor, and you are the defendant. But you can turn the tables around and condemn him. Every tongue raised against you, you can prove false because you have the truth. My Word is truth.

And living in the truth is a rest in Me. It takes away all fear of evil and of death out of your life. The sanctified life is a life of peace and joy in the Beloved. I am yours and you are Mine. Perfect love casts out all fear, for fear has to do with punishment. And there is no condemnation now for you who are in Christ Jesus. Jesus took your sins. By His blood He bought you and paid your debt for the eternal life you lost and the sins you have done. Plead the blood and testify with My Word about you and you will live the blessed life of the sanctified.

Even before I gave Moses the Ten Commandments and the plans for the tabernacle and the priests’ vestments, I taught them about the Shabbat. It was the first teaching I gave them when they came out of Egypt. And I taught them this lesson by the gathering of the Manna, the bread from Heaven that I gave them to eat every day while they were in the barrenness of the desert. On the sixth day I gave them the double portion of the manna so that on the Shabbat, the seventh day, there would be no work but it would be set aside as a day of rest in Me. Exodus 16:22-36. And later I would tell them more about the mystery of the Shabbat, “You shall surely observe My Shabbat; for this is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the LORD who sanctifies you.” Exodus 31:13. And this is the first time I gave you My Name as the LORD who sanctifies you and it was in relation to entering My rest, the place of grace in which you now stand by faith.

And later I affirmed this again, I told Moses, “Speak to all the congregation of the sons of Israel and say to them, ‘You shall be holy, for I the LORD your God am holy. Every one of you shall reverence his mother and his father, and you shall keep My sabbaths; I am the LORD your God. Leviticus 19:2-3.

I am righteous in all My ways, and holy in all My works. Psalm 145:17. Holiness befits My house for length of days. I made all things in My creation “very good.” There was not the least imperfection at all in it at the time that I made them. All the angels and man were created holy by Me before they fell into sin. Sin defiles holiness. Holiness is beautiful but sin is not. Sin defiles and deforms. It turned a glorious angel shining with My radiance, Lucifer, now known as Satan (the accuser) or the devil, the father of lies, into an ugly evil spirit that inhabits realms of darkness and crawls in the dirt he eats. It took away the strength of Samson and turned him into the slave of the enemy. It brought the tall handsome Saul, the first king of Israel, into a defeated, fearful, jealous, depressed remnant of what he once was. And sin turned an incorruptible life and world into a corruptible, curse filled, defiled place. And that is what Adam and Eve did by their sin. Think twice about being pulled into pride and sin. That is why My Son, even after offering the woman caught in adultery the gift of no condemnation, He told her to avoid that sin in the future.

Every law and command I give you is to help you walk in holiness and truth. Even the Ceremonial Laws like those concerning the layout of the tabernacle, the priesthood and the various offerings, were to help you to holiness. But even though the Law is holy it proved to be against you in that it condemned you, for to achieve righteousness on your own is impossible for man since Adam corrupted the seed. The Law shows you that the only person, who is without any sin at all, the only person in whom Holiness is perfected in man, is Jesus Christ. Only Jesus fulfilled and satisfied every single requirement of My Law, to the letter. And Jesus revealed My Holiness to you not only in His life, but also in His death. The death of Christ was the most powerful revelation of My infinite holiness and how utterly hateful sin is to Me. My Son, who was perfect, took your sins and took the punishment due them in your place, and great was the pain and agony that He suffered on the cross and that is how serious sin is.

And the most wonderful news for you is that now, in exchange for bearing the punishment for your sins, Jesus Christ has given each of you the standing of perfect holiness that is His, the holiness of the perfect life that He lived on earth. I made Him who knew no sin to be sin for you so that in Him you can become righteous with My own righteousness. 2 Corinthians 5:21. There is therefore now no condemnation to you who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, I did: sending My own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, I condemned sin in the flesh, so that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in you, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

So the good news is this: My holiness, which formerly disqualified you from being in My presence and kept you away from Me, is the same holiness that now qualifies you to be in My presence and keeps you there with confidence in the very Holy of Holies, My throne of grace. Hebrews 4:12-16. For it was My good pleasure for all the fullness to dwell in My Son and through Him to reconcile all things to Myself, having made peace through the blood of His cross. And although you were formerly alienated and hostile in mind, engaged in evil deeds, yet Jesus has now reconciled you to Me in His fleshly body through death, in order to present you before Me HOLY and BLAMELESS and BEYOND REPROACH. Colossians 1:19-22.

And now that My Holiness has enabled you to stand in My holy presence, it becomes possible for you to be sanctified, through My power working within you which can do far more than you can ask or imagine. And there is the key, walking in the Spirit, for now that you have been born again by your faith in Jesus, My Spirit has come to dwell in you. And He is the sanctifier. But how does He sanctify you? He guides you to all truth, My Word is truth. Jesus told His disciples that it was His Word that cleansed them. Once your sins are gone by the blood of My Son, you renew your mind to be transformed from the lusts of sin to the purity of holiness by the washing of water with My Word.

How does Jesus sanctify you, His body the Church? Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her, so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the Word, that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be HOLY and blameless. Ephesians 5:25-27.

Do you remember what Jesus prayed for you who would believe in Him at the Passover supper the night before He died? He prayed to Me for you, “They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them in the truth; Your Word is truth.” John 17:16-17. Once you have been born again of the incorruptible seed of My Word, you must renew you mind in My Word so that I can sanctify you. For I am My Word and I am holy. My Word is holy and it is living and active, working in you to bring life, healing, and discern the thoughts and motives of your heart. Hebrews 4:12.

Obedience to My Word is the key to My work of sanctification in you. Remove the vile and speak only My pure words.

And all this becomes possible by My grace, that you access by faith in Jesus, for of His fullness you have all received, grace upon grace. For the Law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. For My grace has appeared, bringing salvation to all men, instructing you to deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live sensibly, righteously and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of your Savior, Christ Jesus, who gave Himself for you to redeem you from every lawless deed, and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds.

For you were once foolish, disobedient, deceived, enslaved to various lusts and pleasures, spending your life in malice and envy, hateful, hating one another. But when My kindness and My love for mankind appeared, I saved you, not on the basis of deeds which you have done in righteousness, but according to My mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit, whom I poured out upon you richly through Jesus Christ your Savior, so that being justified by His grace you would be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. For you are My workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which I prepared beforehand so that you would walk in them. Pursue peace with all men, and the holiness without which no one will see Me. See to it that no one comes short of My grace; that no root of bitterness springing up causes trouble, and by it many be defiled Hebrews 12:14-15.

I love you beyond love. I did not leave you in your sins but sent My beloved Son to bear your sins and make you holy and blameless before Me. My will for you now, is that your lives should indeed become holy, just as I AM holy. I want the way you walk and live to match who you are in Christ. There should be a difference in the way you live, work, talk, and go about your daily affairs and relationships from the ways of people who do not believe. You are in the world but not of the world, you are sanctified and set apart for doing the good deeds of the Kingdom on earth. And this is the specific usage of My Name YHWH Mekaddeshkem. I AM the LORD who sanctifies you that you may walk in newness of life. Therefore, prepare your minds for action, keep sober in spirit, fix your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. As My obedient children, do not be conformed to the former lusts which were yours in your ignorance, but like Me, the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior; because it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.” 1 Peter 1:13-16.
