 UNSPOTTED

1 Peter 1:13 So brace up your minds; be sober (circumspect, morally alert); set your hope wholly and unchangeably on the grace (divine favor) that is coming to you when Jesus Christ (the Messiah) is revealed.
14 [Live] as children of obedience [to God]; do not conform yourselves to the evil desires [that governed you] in your former ignorance [when you did not know the requirements of the Gospel].
15 But as the One Who called you is holy, you yourselves also be holy in all your conduct and manner of living.
16 For it is written, You shall be holy, for I am holy.
17 And if you call upon Him as [your] Father Who judges each one impartially according to what he does, [then] you should conduct yourselves with true reverence throughout the time of your temporary residence [on the earth, whether long or short].
18 You must know (recognize) that you were redeemed (ransomed) from the useless (fruitless) way of living inherited by tradition from [your] forefathers, not with corruptible things [such as] silver and gold,
19 But [you were purchased] with the precious blood of Christ (the Messiah), like that of a [sacrificial] lamb without blemish or spot.
Oh Beloved, dare we breeze through this text on HOLINESS?
Hebrews 12:14
Strive to live in peace with everybody and pursue that consecration and holiness without which no one will [ever] see the Lord.
Is this how you're living your life? As "children of obedience" Is this what you strive for day by day. Is this important to you? IT IS TO YEHOVAH.
Psalm 93:5
Your testimonies are very sure; holiness [apparent in separation from sin, with simple trust and hearty obedience] is becoming to Your house, O Lord, forever.
" holiness [apparent in separation from sin, with simple trust and hearty obedience"
Does this describe your life? My life? Well does it? If not, then whatever you cling too in hope of eternal joy with YEHOVAH, is FALSE!!! You and I need to fix that. NOW!!!!
" holiness [apparent in separation from sin, with simple trust and hearty obedience". I cannot see how one can hope to be saved without holiness. SEPARATION from the world and the TRADITIONS (religious rituals etc. of your fathers) that you have apparently been following in denominational bliss. THAT NEEDS TO CHANGE.
Can you at least see how the REMNANT shrinks dramatically, when we use the Biblical definition of holiness, without which NO MAN shall see the LORD?
James 1:27 External religious worship [religion as it is expressed in outward acts] that is pure and unblemished in the sight of God the Father is this: to visit and help and care for the orphans and widows in their affliction and need, and to keep oneself unspotted and uncontaminated from the world.
"keep oneself unspotted and uncontaminated from the world." That's HOLINESS my friend. Does your preacher preach this? If not, you're listening to the wrong preacher. Come out from among them and be ye SEPERATE!!!! HOLY!!!! How can one possibly be living for GOD if you are still living in your SIN (unholiness)? How can we be so indifferent to the world with all of it's allurements and temptations and still hope to be HOLY? You can't live unspotted if you keep wallowing in the mire of temptation and sin. REPENT! Stop SINNING. Stop doing things and exposing your spirit to filth and ungodliness at ever turn. Cry out unto the LORD for POWER through the HOLY SPIRIT, to turn away from all of these things and LIVE HOLY BEFORE HIM. Turn from your evil ways and evil doings, or you will never see the LORD. Amen. - L
