Holiness is the beauty that adorns the Lord’s House! I believe we are coming into a time where we will hold dear the word “holiness” again. It will become precious, treasured and protected as we understand we are to be holy as the Lord is holy. The Father’s House will be honored, and it will be our hearts delight to guard His Home – in the innermost place of our being, and the places where His Glory dwells.
“You are to be holy to Me; for I the Lord am holy, and have set you apart from the peoples (nations) to be Mine.” Leviticus 20:26 AMP
“Your precepts are fully confirmed and completely reliable; Holiness adorns Your house, O Lord, forever.” Psalms 93:5 AMP
“Nothing could ever change your royal decrees; they will last forever! Holiness is the beauty that fills your house; you are the one who abides forevermore!” Psalms 93:5 TPT
The Lord is raising up a people who love and rejoice in the Truth!
Several months ago I had a dream where I was holding the longest ruler I had ever seen, it was not flat, though square shaped and made of wood. There was a man with me in the dream holding the other side, though I could not see who it was as I was viewing myself in third person. There was so much joy, and a sense of childlikeness.
The ruler I saw may have been a measuring rod, and or symbolized the plumb line [the Lords standard]. “Thus He showed me [a vision], and behold, the Lord was standing by a vertical wall with a plumb line in His hand [to determine if the wall was straight or if it needed to be destroyed].” Amos 7:7 AMP
“I will make justice the measuring line and righteousness the plumb line…” Isaiah 28:17 NIV. The ruler or rod in my hand was block shaped, which I believe represents the four corners of the earth, and is connected to ruling and reigning with Christ. If you are a priest of the Lord, you are consecrated to Truth.
I have been writing about the fear of the Lord and judgment for about a year now, and it’s time we come to grasp the beauty of holiness, the joy of holiness! Once again, judgment is simply a deciding for or against. If your conscience and heart are clear, one should not fear judgment. The Lord even tells us to judge ourselves, so that we can adhere to His Ways. The more narrow the path one walks, the greater attention to agility and focus is needed, and yet this narrow path is what leads to Life.
Righteousness and Justice are the very foundation of God’s throne, and at His right hand is joy and pleasure forevermore. Liberation is found in the Truth and His ways, not our idea of freedom. True joy is rising in the remnant because they love The narrow Way!
It is true wisdom and maturity to accept and understand joy can only be found in the Truth. “It (love) does not rejoice at injustice, but rejoices with the truth [when right and truth prevail].” 1 Corinthians 13:6 AMP
“Let Mount Zion be glad! Let the daughters of Judah rejoice because of Your [righteous] judgments!” Psalm 48:11 AMPC
Beautiful are the feet we follow, beginning and the end, His Ways are perfect and true. 🕊🤍
Many people wonder why “the call on their life” is not being fulfilled but a fulfilled call begins with Christ making us holy. As the global body we need to rise in maturity, strap up and put our boots on. We must humbly ask the Father the difficult questions about our lives. Scripture writes that God does not change, He is faithful, and that Jesus will fulfill the call over us by making us holy. I believe one of the main reasons we don’t see destiny fulfilled is because the person has not yielded to the work of the Lord; they run from refiners fire, try to escape testing, avoid pruning and the like. Holiness is a requirement to fulfill the call in consecrated devotion, however holiness is not on your terms nor can you make yourself holy. “Now May the God of peace sanctify you”, His peace is found in the yielding and in the surrender. He is the potter, we are the clay. He is calling us higher friends, there is so much more though it requires a surrendered heart, will you trust Him and place your life in His hands?
“Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you through and through [that is, separate you from profane and vulgar things, make you pure and whole and undamaged—consecrated to Him—set apart for His purpose]; and may your spirit and soul and body be kept complete and [be found] blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful and absolutely trustworthy is He who is calling you [to Himself for your salvation], and He will do it [He will fulfill His call by making you holy, guarding you, watching over you, and protecting you as His own].” 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 AMP
This morning I had a powerful vision I pray blesses you. I was praying in the Spirit and I sensed I was in the courts of Heaven. There was a weight on my heart, and I very much felt the accusations of the adversary. I had bound these spirits to the foot of the cross in English, and broke any agreement that they were part of my identity. However, there was still something being prayed through me. As I yielded to the Spirit I went into a vision and saw Jesus’ hand (index finger) writing w o r t h y in His blood over my exposed heart. I asked the Lord for Scripture and two passages came to mind.
“So now the case is closed. There remains no accusing voice of condemnation against those who are joined in life-union with Jesus, the Anointed One.” Romans 8:1 TPT
“Your hearts can soar with joyful gratitude when you think of how God made you worthy to receive the glorious inheritance freely given to us by living in the light. He has rescued us completely from the tyrannical rule of darkness and has translated us into the kingdom realm of his beloved Son. For in the Son all our sins are canceled and we have the release of redemption through his very blood.” Colossians 1:12-14 TPT
The blood of Jesus closes the case in the courts! The enemy uses his index “pointer” finger to accuse the body, Jesus uses his index finger to authenticate truth over your heart and prophetically point you to the legitimacy of your identity. The enemy lies to intimidate with ‘all that you are not’, while Jesus speaks truth into all that you are.
Revelation 12:10 writes that the accuser of our brothers and sisters (who are the body of Christ) relentlessly accuses us before God day and night. As we grow and mature in our spiritual journey warfare shifts in awareness and intensity, but one thing will remain; the truth of God’s Word. Sometimes we will find ourselves in the courts of Heaven (and not always on the defense) but when your heart is pure and united to Christ’s, you can remain confident you will “win the case”, for the release of redemption is through His very blood. His blood made you worthy to receive this beautiful inheritance- beloved identity in Him to rule and reign with Him. May we look to Jesus beholding all that HE is, may we incline our ear to His voice and hear the words of life from the Author and finisher of our faith. (Hebrews 12:2).
