HOLINESS

Leviticus 19:2 states "Speak to all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say to them:You shall be holy for the Lord your God am holy." Qadosh is the Hebrew word for holy. It means set apart, sacred, clean, morally or ceremonially pure. Holiness is separation from everything profane and defiling; and at the same time, it is dedication to everything holy and pure. He (God) is called Qadosh, "the Holy One of Israel." Thus verse 19:2 can say, "you shall be qedoshjim [holy ones] for I...am holy."                                                                                                                                                  Be holy; Don't DO holy! Become a living arc of His Presence, one that displays His fruit and shares His gifts. "Be holy as I am holy." Love without holiness is earthly: holiness without love is lofty and external! Love and holiness must be married. It is the heart that makes us holy; not the rules we follow, or the things we wear, He wants us to quit striving, doing the things He has already done for us. "It Is Finished" says it all. Holy--unholy, Clean--unclean, We all need to KNOW the difference!     Romans 11:16 says "For if the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches." Verse 36 reads "For out of Him , the sustainer of everything, came everything, and NOW everything finds fulfillment in Him. May all praise & honor be given to Him forever! Amen!!

NOTHING BUT THE BLOOD OF JESUS

IN WHOM WE HAVE REDEMPTION THROUGH HIS BLOOD, EVEN THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS. COLOSSIANS 1:14... Did you know that the blood of a baby in the womb never comes in contact with the mother and that it is contributed by the male seed, not by the female egg? This was a divine plan of God when He designed men & women. God knew He would need to send a Savior into the world to redeem them!!! We all need a SAVIOR and only the blood of Jesus can cleanse us and make us white as snow!!! Redeem means to pay a price to ransom someone. Our redemption could only be bought with the perfect, pure blood of Jesus. The blood of Jesus came from the Holy Spirit when He overshadowed Mary, therefore the blood of Jesus was completely pure. His blood was the only blood that could pay for our sins because it came directly from God and was never contaminated with sin. It was the perfect payment and sacrifice for our forgiveness!!!The blood of Christ is still cleansing and washing us today as much as it did two t

Disposition of Messiah

Exodus 34:6 And the Lord passed before him and proclaimed, "The Lord, the Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering , and abounding in goodness and truth... In this verse IS the disposition of Messiah. The early church used this important verse to judge prophecy and conduct in the church atmosphere. There were three elders who were in charge of hearing and deciding if what was said and done in that time was in the disposition of Messiah. In this very shaky and explosive time we are living in (exciting & wonderful time I might add) it would serve us well if we would write this verse on the tablet of our heart and in every circumstance, situation we find ourselves apply it rightly and justly. By doing this, we, as the body of Christ, will start looking like the "church" the public has never seen!!!

EMBRACE LADY WISDOM

"She's the very Tree of Life to those who embrace her. Hold her tight-and be blessed!" Proverbs 3:18(TheMessage) Our inheritance from Abba includes the gift of wisdom, which will restore to us what was lost through the fall. When Adam & Eve sinned they were expelled from Paradise so they wouldn't eat from the Tree of Life & live forever in their sin. Then He placed a huge fiery revolving sword and stationed a angel to guard the entrance. The good news is through the victory of Yeshua at the cross and the resurrection, the angel and the sword have been removed and we are free to eat from the Tree of Life! In the spirit of wisdom and understanding we grasp that to embrace her(wisdom), there is a cleaving to that opens our heart to understand that He(Yeshua) IS the source of all wisdom. When we cleave to Him we are embracing the Tree of Life, getting back what was lost! We are the Bride, the overcomers who remember their first love, the living flames of love who
