This week has been a time of confronting the very things that the LORD has exposed as profane in the life of the Church and within each of us individually. It is not always an easy task to be steadfast in one’s stand for HOLINESS or RIGHTEOUSNESS, but not doing so comes at too great of a cost. We must recognize the great cost that was paid for us to even be called or considered as holy; the very BLOOD OF CHRIST!
Over the past few years the LORD has really been speaking to us about HOLINESS. One of the National Strategic Prayer Call Focuses on Esther’s Hour recently was on that subject. Let me briefly share it’s points again:
Walking through the Scriptures: On The Character of The Christ
Sanctified As HOLY - March 27, 2018
“But like 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 1:15-16
Our Focus for today will be LIVING in the LIGHT as SANCTIFIED BY GOD.
As we walk out the consecrated life let us discern more clearly the profane from the HOLY,
thus by doing so we are conformed to the very image and likeness of GOD.
Jesus set the example, leaving us a model to follow. Pray for greater discernment,
disciplined and desire within the Church and the Nation to follow the way of HOLINESS,
allowing ourselves to be SANCTIFIED BY GOD, SET APART for every good work.
What does it mean to be sanctified?
verb (sanctifies, sanctifying, sanctified) [with object]
- set apart as or declare holy; consecrate:
- make legitimate or binding by religious sanction:
- free from sin; purify.
- cause to be or seem morally right or acceptable:
As the nations are shifting into place, let us search the scriptures to know what God has
promised us, then Decree HIS STANDARDS IN THE EARTH. Knowing Almighty God
will accomplish all He purposes to do.
It is one thing to confess holiness and another to truly try to walk it out. It will always call for us to separate ourselves from that which is spiritually polluted. The LORD called it; “produce of adulterous fornication”, that’s a pretty strong word! The fruit that spiritual fornication produces God will not receive on His Holy altar. The LORD is releasing the “ZEAL OF PHINEHAS” into the Church and nations. He will raise up HIS Standard of Holiness, not our’s. Our task is to get into alignment with that, not build or erect for ourselves some other form of structure.
Join with us as we walk out this consecrated sanctified life being called into holiness by our LORD. It is ONLY by HIS TRANSFORMING POWER that this is possible. Yield yourself under the mighty hand of GOD so that He can form you into His likeness, all other manmade attempts will fail!
The “SPEAR OF PHINEHAS IS AT THE ALTAR”…. A Spear is a long range and short range weapon. Could it be God is saying that the foresight and vision of great discernment is needed to not only see the unclean from far away, but to also be able to separate, remove it from a distance.
“TOUCH nothing unclean you who carry the vessels of Jehovah”…Isaiah 52:11
Numbers 25:3-18 and Isaiah Chapters 1 and 2
