Holiness?

Holiness?  I thought we were to do what is right. You know be Righteous.

Holy? Is that even possible?

Isaiah 6:3”…Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory.”
In Hebrew:
קָדוֹשׁ קָדוֹשׁ קָדוֹשׁ יְהוָה צְבָאוֹת; מְלֹא כָל-הָאָרֶץ, כְּבוֹדוֹ.

From this we are told that the LORD GOD is HOLY, but how then can I, just a human being be Holy? Or you?

People can be great at imitating things that they want to act like, for examples: their Dad, their Mom or some just animal like: a monkey; a bear; a dog or a cat.) So the easiest way to be Holy, is to imitate THE LORD GOD.

Well, not so easy for almost anyone.

I can imagine the reactions to that statement, for I have seen it many times. But, I ask you to bare with me for a little bit and I will attempt to make this clearer.

You did not hear me say to be god! Nor even to acquire HIS POWER WISDOM, MERCY, COMPASSION, . . . . only to imitate the LORD.

If you were to read and think about the Writings of Moses and all that is written there, you would be see how the LORD GOD behaves. HE keeps the LAWS and Teachings HE gives us, long before HE gives them to us.

There is an easier way to be HOLY, one that LORD GOD declared. “Exodus 19:5 Now therefore, if ye will hearken unto My voice indeed, and keep My covenant, then ye shall be Mine own treasure from among all peoples; for all the earth is Mine;”

Did you understand that? If you just keep HIS Laws and Teachings, upholding HIS Covenant(Contract), then you will be HIS, and The LORD GOD is your GOD, Your Protector, Your Provider. . . . .

Pause.

There is one reference that I should include here, as this has been mis-used many times by many people.
Exodus 19:6 and ye shall be unto Me a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.’ “

This is where we get really messed up: “a kingdom of priests, a holy nation.” Many have jumped to that portion without what came before, and it is used by many people, taken out of context, to grant themselves power and authority over others.

Like in the story of Korah (Numbers 16 and 17) declares in Numbers 16:3 . . . Ye take too much upon you, seeing all the congregation are holy, every one of them, . . .”

HE (THE LORD GOD) says that you can be HOLY for HE is HOLY. What does that mean? What relationship to the ALMIGHTY can you possibly have that would allow this to happen? I recommend that you read “Your Soul” for a discussion about this connection.

We are only working with the Written WORD Of GOD at the Hand Of Moses, a.k.a. the First Five Books of the Tanakh or Old Testament. This phrase then: “Ye shall be holy; for I the LORD your God am holy.” Which comes from Leviticus 19:2.  In this statement we are presented with another formula, in that: We; you and I, should be holy, because the LORD Our GOD is HOLY. This is very interesting. The ALMIGHTY has declared that we are to be holy, because HE is . . . . .HOLY.  Or, My GOD is Holy, so I should be holy. Or maybe just: Because My GOD is Holy I can be holy.

How about this one:

“Leviticus 20: 7 Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy; for I am the LORD your God.

8 And keep ye My statutes, and do them: I am the LORD who sanctify you.”

That seems to be another version of the Exodus 19 shown above.

Okay, let us take a look at what just happened in those two verse. First, we are to “Sanctify yourselves”! [Really, sanctify myself? But then HE gives you a way to do it.] “Keep ye(you) MY Statues(Laws and teachings), do them: I AM THE LORD who sanctifies you.(HE Declares HOW to make it so.)

Another If, Then statements:
Sanctifiy { If you keep my statues,

Then, I THE LORD Sanctify you!.

Else, you are Not!
};

It works for Exodus 19 also.

We need to keep this in mind: There is not even ONE new law created after Moses’s Written TORAH.

You need to be HOLY.

Even the prophets do not make new laws. Reference: Prophets? to learn the requirements the LORD Declared regarding those that speak for HIM.

There is another reason the LORD declares that we can be holy, because HE Is HOLY. This last reason deals with how HE CREATED US. This one deals with “The Soul”, more specifically Your Soul, and why HE makes that Claim.

An observation here: The LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, CREATOR OF THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH also keeps HIS WORD(Laws, Teachings and Covenants(Contracts) for HE IS HOLY, HOLY, HOLY. So there you go, imitate the LORD GOD and you too will be HOLY.

How do we know the HE KEEPS HIS WORD? Even the enemy knows this. “Numbers 23:19 God is not a man, that He should lie; neither the son of man, that He should repent: when He hath said, will He not do it? or when He hath spoken, will He not make it good?”

Who Can You Trust?

The is ONLY ONE GOD, Creator of the Heavens And the Earth. HIS word is LAW and Truth HIS WORD. HIS LAW NEVER CHANGES, HIS WORD NEVER FAILS. HE Annuls HIS Covenants(contracts) when HE Declares them VOID. See “I Will Break My Covenant!

Can you Trust those who do not speak the Truth? How about those that say “You can not know the Truth!”? Can you trust them?
Can you trust any that say and it does not happen?
Can you trust any that declare this now and something opposite now?
Can you trust someone that has different rules for different people? Should the LAW not be the same for everyone? Should the Application of the LAW be the same for everyone?

There is only ONE GOD, The LIVING GOD of Abraham, GOD of Isaac, GOD of Jacob. HE had many prophets, Only ONE SET OF LAWS, and each prophet you are to judge based upon HIS LAWS.

It is Your soul that you risk.

Think about it. Choose wisely, for everything that is YOU, depends on it.
Is anyone listening? You still have breath and life, you can return and repair your deeds. You just need to Do It while you have time.

I can not save you, no one can., you must Return and do that which is Right.
I can show you the way, if you want to know.

IT is to our benefit to HEARKEN until the LIVING GOD OF ISHRAEL/ISRAEL, and to our pain and shame to do otherwise.

My prayer is that The LORD grant you eyes that see, ears that hear and an understanding heart, then you return unto HIM soon!(Isaiah 6:  9 And He said: ‘Go, and tell this people: hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not. 10 Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they, seeing with their eyes, and hearing with their ears, and understanding with their heart, return, and be healed.’)

Evidence Of The Righteous Being Taken Prior To The End?

Recently I was presented a question on a social media site as: Is the word Rapture a True or False teaching?

Those that know me, know that I love great, thoughtful questions. This is one, if someone really wants to know.

Isaiah 51:16 And I have put My words in thy mouth, and have covered thee in the shadow of My hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion: ‘Thou art My people.’

This is where I started. I should include some other parts of the conversation, but more than […]

The Day to Answer For Your SOUL, 5998 Tanakh Year

The Day to Answer for Your Soul? Day of Atonement? 5998 Tanakh Year

Strange or unusual way to start, but here goes.

Leviticus 23: 27 Howbeit on the tenth day of this seventh month is the day of atonement; there shall be a holy convocation unto you, and ye shall afflict your souls; and ye shall bring an offering made by fire unto the LORD. 28 And ye shall do no manner of work in that same day; for it is a day of atonement, to make atonement for you before the LORD your God. 29 For whatsoever soul it […]

A Return For The Answer To GOD’s Complaint

I apologize for taking so long to answer this question: “GOD’s Complaint”.

First I admit that I forgot about writing that piece. However, I have continuously been learning about those issues.

Second, I am certain that You are not going to like the answer. NO, it is not 42, as Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy declared it, but I have rechecked the answer many times.

Let’s not make this too difficult. Almost all of us are responsible for our part in the Complaint.

What is the complaint? The simple answer is: “Deuteronomy 32:19 And the LORD saw, and spurned, […]

Time Lines --Kings, Prophets and Prophecy

The Journal Export

The reason for this chart and the “My World Date Book” are many fold. One reason is that I was looking to know which Prophecy has not yet happened. Another is that the more Prophecies have come true, the more Proof that The WORD IS TRUE and therefore THE ALMIGHTY IS TRUE TO HIS WORD. Another would be to learn what remains to be completed.

Creating these charts gives a sense of order to history, as demonstrated in the Tanakh(Old Testament) and then extend into today as a direct connection.

How do I use this information? Let […]

Are You God?

That was not a rhetorical question. Do you think you are god?

Every year people seem to get worse. People that are expected to know Deny the LORD GOD’s existence, The Creator of the Heavens and the Earth; With opinion, attempt to discredit by their words alone: Writings of Moses(The Written TORAH, with the WORD of the ALMIGHTY):[Not that any of it has ever been PROVEN WRONG, EVER! Yet more than a little has been observed to be fact.]; Denial that the Exodus happened(by man re-setting the dates to be able to dismiss the evidence in the ground.) yet the […]

My World Datebook Updated

This is taken from the Tanakh (Old Testaments) and it is my Updated Date Book,

I am still confirming the dates of the King of Judah and Israel, but so far it seems

right on the target. The further I get the more the Word MATCHES the Prophecy.

In this Updated version, I have found the dates and Kings Of Israel and Judah. This makes

it possible to see the system within Prophecy and even Daniel stands out, in the dates. All is taken from the

Tanakh(Old Testament). I find it fascinating how we can see the when of events […]

A Holy People

That is it, a claim to fame! We are a Holy People!!! That is it, a claim to fame! We are a Holy People!!! On the other side is: They think they are better than us! Oh!, so now instead of a Holy People you claim CHOSEN!

To this end of proving that we are not holy, many have taken to REPLACING the Covenants and Agreements with the ALMIGHTY, declaring that they are holy and that those Covenants and Agreements are void because of our denial of the Holy One Of Our Fathers, The LIVING GOD.

There are many controversial […]

Divine Destiny?

Please donate using the button to the left if possible, to keep this teaching online. Not Required but Needed.

A response to: “Can man’s power of choice alter Divine destiny? Rabbi Yitzchak Botton.”

Divine destiny?? This is not in the Written Torah! This is not in the Tanakh.

The idea seems to be man made, because our High Holy Days liturgy declares that a determination of who is to die by: water, fire, old age, . . . . . is placed there by MAN. From a single entry: “Exodus 32:32 Yet now, if Thou wilt forgive their sin–; and […]

Prophets!?

Journaling Prompt – Pretend you are dreaming. Write in detail about the dream you are having. You can use stream-of-consciousness, or plan it out. In this exercise you can have a lucid dream where you affect what is happening, or choose to have things happen without your control. ( It might help to first ask yourself what you want to dream about.)

What a opening? A prompt from my journal application, which I find appropriate for this topic, of Prophets.

What is a real prophet? Are there rules? Levels of tasks for the one called to be a prophet? For […]
