Leviticus 20:26 New King James Version
26 And you shall be holy to ME, (A)for I the LORD YAHUVEH (YAHWEH) AM HOLY, and have separated you from the peoples, that you should be MINE.
1 Peter 2:9-10 Complete Jewish Bible
9 But you are a chosen people,[a] the King’s cohanim (priests, chiefs),[b] a HOLY nation,[c] a people for GOD (ELOHIM) to possess![d] Why? In order for you to declare the praises of the One who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 10 Once you were not a people, but now you are GOD’S (YAH’S) people; before, you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.[e]
YAH (GOD) ALMIGHTY is saying to us that in order to get through these end times, we need a higher level of Holiness and Able Water Walking Faith!
Hebrews 13:12-13New King James Version
12 Therefore YAHUSHUA also, that HE might [a]sanctify the people with HIS OWN BLOOD, suffered outside the gate.
Hebrews 10:13-15 New King James Version
13 from that time waiting till HIS enemies are made HIS footstool. 14 For by one offering HE has perfected forever those who are being [a]sanctified.
15 But the RUACH HA KODESH (HOLY SPIRIT) also witnesses to us; for after HE had said before,
1 Peter 1:15-17 King James Version
15 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;
16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I AM holy.
17 And if ye call on THE FATHER, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear:
ABLE WATER WALKING EMUNAH (FAITH)
Check yourself, is your FAITH strong enough to let you walk on water or walk on dry ground in the midst of a large or dangerous water body?
Work on your faith. Emunah as small as a mustard seed is good however, it is not enough in these end times, Brethren. Develop your EMUNAH while you still can because what is coming to earth us not for the faint-hearted!!!
Where do we see this in the Bible?
Matthew 14:22-33 Complete Jewish Bible
22 Immediately HE had the talmidim (disciples) get in the boat and go on ahead of HIM to the other side, while HE sent the crowds away.
23 After he had sent the crowds away, he went up into the hills by himself to pray. Night came on, and HE was there alone.
24 But by this time, the boat was several miles from shore, battling a rough sea and a headwind.
25 Around four o’clock in the morning, he came toward them, walking on the lake!
26 When the talmidim saw HIM walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost!” they said and screamed with fear.
27 But at once YAHUSHUA spoke to them. “Courage,” HE said, “it is I. Stop being afraid.”
28 Then Kefa called to him, “LORD, if it is really you, tell me to come to you on the water.”
29 “Come!” HE said. So Kefa got out of the boat and walked on the water toward YAHUSHUA.
30 But when he saw the wind, he became afraid; and as he began to sink, he yelled, “LORD! Save me!”
31 YAHUSHUA immediately stretched out his hand, took hold of him, and said to him, “Such little trust! Why did you doubt?”
32 As they went up into the boat, the wind ceased.
33 The men in the boat fell down before HIM and exclaimed, “YOU really ARE ELOHIM’S SON!”
This happened and was recorded in order to increase our FAITH in YAH, HalleluYAH!
Acts 8:39-40 New King James Version
39 Now when they came up out of the water, (A)the RUACH (SPIRIT) OF THE LORD YAHUSHUA caught Philip away, so that the eunuch saw him no more; and he went on his way rejoicing.
40 But Philip was found at [a]Azotus. And passing through, he preached in all the cities till he came to (B)Caesarea.
👆This is something else which happened so as to have our Faith increased in YAH ALMIGHTY, HalleluYAH!
Genesis 19:12-29 New King James Version
Sodom and Gomorrah Destroyed(A)
12 Then the men said to Lot, “Have you anyone else here? Son-in-law, your sons, your daughters, and whomever you have in the city—(B)take them out of this place! 13 For we will destroy this place, because the (C)outcry against them has grown great before the face of the LORD YAHUVEH (YAHWEH), and (D)the LORD YAHUVEH has sent us to destroy it.”
14 So Lot went out and spoke to his sons-in-law, (E)who had married his daughters, and said, (F)“Get up, get out of this place; for the LORD YAHUVEH will destroy this city!” (G)But to his sons-in-law he seemed to be joking.
15 When the morning dawned, the angels urged Lot to hurry, saying, (H)“Arise, take your wife and your two daughters who are here, lest you be consumed in the punishment of the city.”
17 So it came to pass, when they had brought them outside, that [a]he said, (L)“Escape for your life! (M)Do not look behind you nor stay anywhere in the plain. Escape (N)to the mountains, lest you be [b]destroyed.”
18 Then Lot said to them, “Please, (O)no, my lords! 19 Indeed now, your servant has found favor in your sight, and you have increased your mercy which you have shown me by saving my life; but I cannot escape to the mountains, lest some evil overtake me and I die. 20 See now, this city is near enough to flee to, and it is a little one; please let me escape there (is it not a little one?) and my soul shall live.”
21 And he said to him, “See, (P)I have favored you concerning this thing also, in that I will not overthrow this city for which you have spoken. 22 Hurry, escape there. For (Q)I cannot do anything until you arrive there.”
Therefore (R)the name of the city was called [c]Zoar.
23 The sun had risen upon the earth when Lot entered Zoar. 24 Then the Lord rained (S)brimstone and (T)fire on Sodom and Gomorrah, from the Lord out of the heavens. 25 So He [d]overthrew those cities, all the plain, all the inhabitants of the cities, and (U)what grew on the ground.
26 But his wife looked back behind him, and she became (V)a pillar of salt.
27 And Abraham went early in the morning to the place where (W)he had stood before the LORD YAHUVEH. 28 Then he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain; and he saw, and behold, (X)the smoke of the land which went up like the smoke of a furnace. 29 And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain, that God (Y)remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when He overthrew the cities in which Lot had dwelt.
👆This also happened for a purpose. As it was in the days of Lot, so it will be again in these end times.
YAH ALMIGHTY calls for A High Level of HOLINESS before HIM!
HOLINESS and SANCTIFICATION are the same thing.
Hebrews 12:14 New King James Version
14 (A)Pursue peace with all people, and HOLINESS, (B)without which no one will see the LORD YAHUVEH (YAHWEH):
HOLINESS/SANCTIFICATION is a crucial weapon against the devil! And when maintained in YAH’S Way, it attracts many unusual Miracles from YAH, HalleluYAH!
Miracles, that is to say, Supernatural provision for needs according to YAH’S riches in GLORY, including:
👍receiving Manna from Heaven (Exodus 16)
👍receiving money from YAH in an imaginable ways (Matthew 17:26-27)
👍Supernatural Travel (Acts 8:39-40; Genesis 19:12-29)
It is all about being Specially Set Apart for YAH (GOD) ALMIGHTY. See 1 Peter 2:9-10
Whatever is Specially Set Apart for YAH is to give GLORY to HIM always.
It is like you setting apart clothes, utensils, money for special occasions.
There is/are Specially Set Apart:
👍People (Israel) – Romans 11
👍Day(s) (Saturdays and other Appointed Times/Biblical Festivals – Leviticus 23; Matthew 5:17, Colossians 2:16-19, etc)
👍Food (Leviticus 11)
Leviticus 11:44-46 New King James Version
44 For I am the LORD YAHUVEH (YAHWEH) your (A)ELOHIM. You shall therefore consecrate yourselves, and (B)you shall be HOLY; for I AM HOLY. Neither shall you defile yourselves with any creeping thing that creeps on the earth. 45 (C)For I AM THE LORD YAHUVEH who brings you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your ELOHIM. (D)You shall therefore be HOLY, for I AM HOLY.
👍Offering (Tithe, Alms for the poor & needy and types of offerings, etc)
Colossians 2:14-16 Complete Jewish Bible
14 HE wiped away the bill of charges against us. Because of the regulations, it stood as a testimony against us; but he removed it by nailing it to the execution-stake.
15 Stripping the rulers and authorities of their power, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by means of the stake.
16 So don’t let anyone pass judgment on you in connection with eating and drinking, or in regard to a Jewish festival or Rosh-Hodesh or Shabbat.
17 These are a shadow of things that are coming, but the body is of the MESSIAH (YAHUSHUA).
18 Don’t let anyone deny you the prize by insisting that you engage in self-mortification or angel-worship. Such people are always going on about some vision they have had, and they vainly puff themselves up by their worldly outlook.
19 They fail to hold to the HEAD, from whom the WHOLE BODY, receiving supply and being held together by its joints and ligaments, grows as YAH makes it grow.
For we are not of the world though we live in this world!!! Therefore we are not to behave like the world does.
How do we stop behaving like the world does?
Ephesians 4:22-32 New King James Version
22 that you (A)put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts,
23 and (B)be renewed in the spirit of your mind,
24 and that you (C)put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.
Do Not Grieve the Spirit
25 Therefore, putting away lying, (D)“Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor,” for (E)we are members of one another.
26 (F)“Be angry, and do not sin”: do not let the sun go down on your wrath,
27 (G)nor give [a]place to the devil.
28 Let him who stole steal no longer, but rather (H)let him labor, working with his hands what is good, that he may have something (I)to give him who has need.
29 (J)Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but (K)what is good for necessary [b]edification, (L)that it may impart grace to the hearers.
30 And (M)do not grieve the HOLY SPIRIT of ELOHIM (YAH), by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
31 (N)Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, [c]clamor, and (O)evil speaking be put away from you, (P)with all malice.
32 And (Q)be kind to one another, tenderhearted, (R)forgiving one another, even as YAH (GOD) in YAHUSHUA forgave you.
It is YAH who calls us to HIMSELF and Specially Sets Apart then afterwards, we are to build onto the foundation of Holiness and Righteousness that HE gives to us hence YAH says BE Holy as I AM HOLY! We have to endeavour act like Set Apart People of THE MOST HIGH GOD, YAH, HalleluYAH!
We have to make many sacrifices in life in order to be Holy before YAH ALMIGHTY because we are to act according to the HOLY SPIRIT’S instructions and not the flesh!
Galatians 5:19-24 New King James Version
19 Now (A)the works of the flesh are evident, which are: [a]adultery, [b]fornication, uncleanness, lewdness,
20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies,
21 envy, [c]murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that (B)those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of ELOHIM.
22 But (C)the FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT is (D)love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, (E)goodness, (F)faithfulness, 23 [d]gentleness, self-control. (G)Against such there is no law.
24 And those who are YAHUSHUA’S (H)have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
We are to be Living Sacrifices until YAH ALMIGHTY (Romans 12:1-2) thereby allowing YAH to live through us.
May HIS GLORY and LIGHT shine through us (YAHUSHUA’S BODY) brighter and brighter, may it never grow deem, in YAHUSHUA’S Name, Amen!
👍👉Though we are in the flesh, we are not to allow the flesh to control us.
👍👉We are to live by EMUNAH (FAITH) and not by sight!
May YAH ALMIGHTY help us to draw closer to HIM and to be more like HIM and to be more full of HIM than this world, in YAHUSHUA’S (JESUS’, not Yeshua!!!) Name, Amen!
