A Call to HOLINESS July 22, 2010
There is a call to HOLINESS like I have never felt before. God is giving us the power needed to do this. God wants us as clean on the inside as on the outside. Many are much like the Pharisees. They want to worship and pray and look like they are holy and righteous to the world but the Father sees deeper than the world. He sees the heart and all the blackness that is still there. His holiness is possible only when we learn to walk in the Glory Realm. When we talk, think, act and do like Jesus showed us in every area of our lives. When we pretend, He sees right through us. He is bringing forth His Bride, those that are learning to walk in holiness, and He is showing them how to also see right through the deception. He wants us fully committed and consecrated to Himself!
Jesus longs for us to come into the bridal chamber to be with Him but we are not ready. We need to take off the garments that are soiled and allow ourselves to be cleansed and made ready, just as Ester was. Instead we look away from the mirror that would show our true self and we are deceived into thinking that we are ready for the bridegroom. Awake and clean the glass so that you can see yourself clearly. See yourself with all your flaws and faults so that they can be erased and you can be made new. Do not deceive yourself any longer. Awake for the time is drawing near for the Bridegroom to come. Remember that not all who came to the wedding feast were allowed to stay, as some were not dressed in proper attire. Our attire needs to be holiness and purity on the inside. We need to be different from the "world" and not mimic it. We need to set the example for the "world " to see so that they will want to be ready when the Bridegroom comes.
Prepare now while there is still time, for the hour is coming when you will not be able to do this. Look deep within yourself and then allow the Holy Spirit to do what is necessary to help you be prepared and walk in the holiness needed for this hour! Awake and see yourself clearly!
