I agree that when we get a glimpse of the glory of God, the only appropriate place is in prosternation. There is no place for boasting, except in the Lord.(1)

Indeed, we who have been transformed by the will and power of God find that His arm is not too short that it cannot save.(2) In Christ, we are indeed new creatures; the old has passed, and behold, all things have become new!(3) Our heart of stone has been replaced with a heart that responds to God.(4) Our old master, "sin", has been replaced by our new master, "Christ".(5) And all this is the work of God, to the glory of His Name.(6)

That is why we come into the light, so that the works of God in us might be clearly revealed, to the glory of His Name.(7)

So we can say, "Not I, but the Lord working IN ME".(8)

Love in Christ,

Isaiah 6:5-8
Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts. Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar: And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged. Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.

After the WOE was LO, with God cleansing him (verse 7). God cleansed him when he realized his uncleaness. His sin was taken away and purged from his heart. God took his sin away! That is holiness of heart. God then said to GO. Isaiah said, Here am I; send me.

Quote:- God cleansed him when he realized his uncleaness. His sin was taken away and purged from his heart.

What was this work or blessing?

It cannot be pardon or regeneration as Paul says Abraham, Jacob, David, and countless multitudes were called God's children. "These all died in the faith," says Paul.

What is Holiness?

InTheLight replied -

In Christ,


Thank you Brother. 'Only' The Truth / The Word of GOD, can set me or any of us Free.

From the opening post of this thread -

"We just say what a powerful message "Sinners in the Hand of an Angry God" awesome message very intellectual but it is not for me or "A Call to Anguish" he is right but not for me. It makes me weep. I am crying for holiness. The Angels the highest order of Angels CHOOSE to cry out day and night non-stop Holy, Holy, Holy. Hebrews says without Holiness it is impossible to see God but we have put it off and said people can't live that way lets preach an easy message."

That's why the Church has lost the fear of GOD and discernment between Scriptural "good and evil" and have become so slack when dealing with sin in the Church - because we sliced and diced up the New Testament and pull the verses that we prefer rather than eating the whole scroll.

Heb 5:12-14 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.
For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.
But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

I believe it to be an OT example of the NT blessing of entire sanctification/baptism of the Holy Spirit.

"God wants a holy people; in heart and life. He would have never said, "Be ye holy, for I am holy" if He did not make a way for His people to be holy. Any holiness man has is derived from God. Apart from Him, man is corrupt. Redemption redeems man completely."

And this makes us Saints.

Humbling to think about, don't you think? Make me feel like hiding my head in the sand because I feel so unworthy, but that is not what God wants from his children. Hiding our head in the sand makes us oblivious to the will of God; instead "we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit." 2Cor. 3:18 NASB. Ahhh, now we understand, do we not?

You've got it Sister GinnyRose. And don't we think that Satan would do every single thing under the Heavens to blind us to it.

1Jn 3:3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself,
even as He is pure.

1Jn 3:7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous,
even as He is righteous.

1Jn 4:17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment:
because as He is, so are we in this world.

Just for a very few.

I'll take HIS WORD on it before any man's.

Imagine what the Overcomers will be like as these last days progress.
Daniel wrote that about that part.
