Believe unto Holiness without which no man shall see God
Jesus Christ, the one who is God in the flesh, Shed His Blood on the cross that we would be made clean, through belief: in Him as Lord and Savior; His death and resurrection; His ascension and eminent return; even by His atonement: His blood having made us clean, has thereby made us able to receive in us the presence of the Holy Spirit and by this, having been born again of God, we have been equipped with the ability to cleanse ourselves of all wickedness through the Power of The Holy Spirit; for those who believe and receive the light that the world rejected, He has given power to become the sons of God.
Therefore since God has required that we be Holy even as He is Holy, it is not something of which we should be discouraged nor should it be despised, for God is just, righteous, and true, desiring beyond our comprehension that we become one with Him, even as He is one with the Son Jesus Christ, so much so, that we should consider the command to be Holy as evidence that He has made us able also to perform it.
Let us avoid the powerful grip of wickedness which results from unbelief, for if we do not believe we can be Holy, we have given ourselves to wickedness and offended the Holy and precious gift of God toward us despising the holy sacrifice of The Lord and Savior Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the living Son of God who left Glory to secure our place in the Heavenly and divine creation to come.
If God left Glory to suffer the death on the cross for us, then how important do we think it is to Him to also finish in us the work He started; and if we entered in to this life with Him through faith and believing and by the Power of the Holy Spirit, then how else shall we continue on into the holiness to which we are called and without which no man shall see God?
Know this, “…for whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith”, that, “He who began a good work in you will be faithful to complete it”, that, “it is God who works in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure”, that, “He, Jesus Christ is the author and finisher of our faith”, therefore settle not for the lie that Christ died so that we could live in continuous sin; No! Not for a minute!. Rather understand and rejoice in the knowledge that when before you were enlightened concerning the Gospel Of Jesus Christ, that holiness and knowing God were impossible and you were living in condemnation, slave to sin, and separated from God; but now since the truth of the Gospel of Christ and the love of the Father toward you has been revealed, that in Christ you have the promise that as you cleanse yourself from wickedness, you have His power by which to perform it which is the Holy Spirit of promise, Christ in you, the hope of glory, for it is by this that you are able to continue in faith, hope and holiness until the day of your full redemption.
Now if we believe, it is evidenced by our obedience for Jesus said, “if you love me, you will keep my commandments”. So the forgiveness of sins through Jesus Christ has taken them and their penalty out of the way so that our past sins no longer are a hindrance, meaning they have no power to disqualify us from sanctification. We are sanctified, that is we are put aside to a special place, set apart for a Holy purpose in Christ by the Spirit of power and holiness by the grace and divine will of God the Father. How absurd it is to say no one can be Holy but we are set apart for a holy purpose!. Scripture itself testifies that God has given it to men to be holy or how could it be said that holy men of God spoke or prophesied concerning that thing God should reveal to us in these last days? Can the scripture be true saying the, “Holy men of God”, while it were not possible? God forbid!
Let God be true and every man a liar, for, this lie that man can not be holy and the rebellion against holiness by those that name the name of Christ is one reason why judgment must start at the house of God and indeed has begun; for He has called a people unto holy ambassadorship to be as He is in this world.
Abraham believed and it was counted unto Him as righteousness yet we have not believed therefore righteousness is not in us for where there is no holiness, there is no righteousness and where there is no faith, there is sin and where there is unbelief, there is disobedience and where there is disobedience there is rebellion; so out of our unbelief we have entered into rebellion and have thereby been taken captive to wickedness for to whatsoever we give our selves, to that same thing we become slave! If we are not giving ourselves to holiness, then to what are we giving ourselves, unholiness? We can’t serve two masters! Rebellion is as witchcraft and how bewitched have we become that we lure multitudes into professing the name of Jesus Christ, calling themselves Christians and feeling comfortable in the very sin which secures their place in hell and in eternal and everlasting flames of destruction!
Yes indeed, light has come into the world and the world comprehends it not for the world loves darkness more than it loves the light! Does this not describe those that through disobedient unbelief embrace not holiness? But to those that receive Him, He gives the power, the right, the means by which to accomplished the holy calling, the holy command of The Lord Most High, the power to become the sons of God.
Did The Father die on the cross? No, yet God is one shown as three; in the Father, and in the Son, and in the Holy Spirit. Yet Jesus chose to do the Father’s will and suffered unto obedience; by His choice He gave himself and did the work; in obedience He performed only the works He saw His Father doing; in obedience He spoke only that which He heard of The Father; in obedience He healed the sick, raised the dead and turned water into wine; in obedience He submitted to death, even crucifixion on the cross, and that only after mocking, scorn, and being beaten, spat upon and whipped cruelly by those of His own chosen people, wounded in the house of His friends, even as no fault was found in Him. He sweat drops of blood in anguish over His work for us saying, “if this cup”, this cup of the curse of your sin, this cup of your reproach, this cup of being forsaken by The Father in your place, “can be taken from me, yet not my will Father but yours be done”. In this, we see that He had a choice and with great effort denied Himself in loving obedience to The Father and on your behalf. So we see that He obeyed and power was given of the Father through the Holy Spirit of God; this power of the Spirit given to Him by which He performed those things wherein He was obedient was only given as a result of His obedience and furthermore, He was, as a result, raised from the dead showing that His atonement was accepted of the Father thereby securing for us the promise of the resurrection from the dead in Christ, if we walk in holiness and continue in the newness of life He bought for us on the cross. Understand that obedience and belief are inseparable for us.
Now you who cry about how you can’t get free from sin, you are without excuse for the scripture bears record of The Lord saying, “those who seek me diligently shall find me”, that “whosoever comes to me shall in no way be rejected”, that “if you return unto me, I will return unto you”, that “if you abide in me and my word abides in you, ask what you will and it shall be done unto you”, also, God is shown true in saying, “you draw close to me with your lips but your heart is far from me” and “wheresoever your heart is there will your treasure also be” and “you shall know them by there fruits”; so take heed and listen you who say Christ is my righteousness while you give more effort to feeding the lusts of your ungodly flesh than you do to knowing the Lord that bought you; how is it that you turn the righteousness of Christ, the holy Son of God into a license to love and to practice the very sin that has infected His creation, broken His heart, and taken captive the apple of His eye into eternal destruction, the very sin that has caused The Lord of Glory to forsake His holy habitation and to sacrifice Himself on the cross of your shame; becoming sin for you so that you would know the Father as He knows the Father.
Do you not know that the God of creation took upon Him the nature of a man; that the God of all creation made himself a little lower than the angels so that you would be made a little higher than the angels? Do you not realized that through this humiliation of the Lord of Glory, that by the blood of God was purchased for you a place in God above which no other place can be found but that place that only God can fill?
You have been called, predestined from before the foundations of the world unto the highest calling that can be given under God and if you believe, have been rewarded with the very power of God himself, through the shed blood of Jesus Christ and the gift of the Holy Spirit of God, to perform this high and marvelous intention of God for you.
Therefore, resist the condemnation of sin and unbelief which results in bondage and act in faith and obedience to rid your self of all wickedness and stand sure and firm in the confidence that the Most-High God requires holiness even as He is holy, that in the light of the truth of all this that has been revealed and secured for you, that He surely and without a doubt has given you the power to do it. It is the same thing for God to say be ye holy even as I am holy as it is for Him to say, you have been made able to be holy even as I am holy, by the power of the Holy Spirit through the Blood of the cross of My Son and by my desire to know you even as I know my Son.
God has not required of us that which He has not made us able to perform, for, “greater is He who is in me than he who is in the world”, and “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me”, for “it is God who works in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure”.
Those who love The Son of God Love the Father and they shall show forth the righteousness of the Most-High while those who love darkness will be snared therein and shall perish in the company of the angels for whom the chambers of everlasting destruction have been reserved. Therefore give all that you have to Him in obedience that the Power to perform it will perform it, even as Christ the firstborn among many brethren has done as an example for us and for the purpose of making us able to do as He did. As Christ endured the cross for the glory set before Him, so you are to do the same and what an incredible gift it is that we can come out of darkness into His marvelous light, into the marvelous light of Him who came out of Glory into our darkness so that you may partake in His inheritance.
The glory of Jesus Christ will be revealed in those who love him and the reward of the wicked will be upon the lovers of evil and all will be settled in the presence of THE LORD OF RIGHTEOUSNESS eye to eye when the books are opened on the day of judgment. May the grace of God be upon the humble and may the proud humble themselves that the favor of God be upon you that you do not perish with the angels of darkness. Come now you who hear the Father, come now and be cleansed by the shed blood of our Great God and Savior Jesus Christ for it is the Fathers’ will that you be saved from the impending day of wrath and not that you perish, so come now for the end is before you, even as the setting of the sun at evening time. Come now it is the end of days for man. Come.
