KEY SCRIPTURE: Psalms 47:8 “God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon the throne of his holiness”.
God is holy and lives in holiness. Everything about Him is attributed to be holy. Just consider the following:
Psalms 89:35 “Once have I sworn by my holiness that I will not lie unto David.” God swears an oath and will not swear by his power or might. He did not swear by his name. God swore by His Holiness. Psalms 93:5 Thy testimonies are very sure: holiness becometh thine house, O LORD, forever. This implies the very dwelling place of God is holy.
How does the angels address Him? Revelation 4:8 And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come. These special angels do not rest throughout eternity. All that they say to the Lord Holy, Holy Holy. Indeed, holiness is the foundation of His being and Holiness remains the only grounds He relates with everything. EVERYTHING THAT WILL HAVE ANYTHING DOING WITH GOD MUST BE HOLY. It was on the basis of this, that our Lord Jesus would have to die to deliver us from sin so we could become a people as pure as Himself. Colossians 1:22 ” In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:”
Please just consider the way you are living? If God will only relate with holy things. Are you walking in holiness? Are you pure with no evil in you? Are you walking in the light? Are there hidden things of dishonesty about you.? What about living in love. Is there any hatred for or towards any man? How sincere are you? Beloved brother and sister, if you are not holy then. According to the revelation of scripture God cannot relate with you. Dear child of God, do not hide under the pretext of God’s grace and keep living in sin. GRACE IS GOD’S DIVINE PROVISION FOR PERFECTION. (Rom 6:14) It is your fear and trembling at His word that allows that heavenly ability of uprightness to function in you. The fear and trembling at His word is our FAITH in the word that opens up His supplies which is His grace to live right. Philippians 2:12 “Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.”
Please remember without holiness, no man will see the Lord. Dear child of God the coming of the Lord is nigh and God is calling on the church to sit up and prepare adequately for Him. Pray in fear for him till your heart is ready to walk FULLY in His ways.
O heavenly Father, I pray that every carelessness will from today be taken away from me. That my actions and thoughts will continually be accepted before you.
Revelation 3:15-16 “I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth.”
Ephesians 5:27 ” That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.”
