You cannot enter heaven and see God without 100 % holiness. His Holiness would burn you up. For the Lord your God is a consuming fire…Deuteronomy 4:24. God is light… so bright that there is no need for the sun in heaven. His light is powerful and so is His holiness. This light…His holiness will consume anything that is not holy. One would be consumed/burnt up by His purity which would happen because s judgment and wrath which is there because of His…Holiness. This is who He is and has always been.
You can’t have one drop of imperfection in you! Without complete holiness we would never be able to see God face to face one day. Nothing impure can ever approach God! Because of Jesus we will be able to stand before our Holy God. This is why this scripture that makes me cry is so important to me:
Jude 1:24 To him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy….

Thank you God, Jesus and Holy Spirit… for making it possible for me to be holy like you… so that I don’t fall into sin and that I can be blameless before your presence. I will not have to bend my head in shame and I will be sooooo happy because I will be guiltless. I will look into the eyes of my God and receive all the joy that has been promised to me for being faithful and living a holy life. Thank you Jesus for your sacrifice! Thank you Holy Spirit for instructing me every single day on being holy and convicting me when I’m not!
We are made holy by means of sanctification. Because Of Jesus and the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives…we have been made holy so now we can communicate directly with God in this human form. Even so…we must be clean. That’s why we ask Jesus to forgive us and wash us clean so our communication with our Father God is not interrupted. Remember…God does not tolerate sin! “Wash me Lord”… should be our daily prayer. Hebrews 10:10 And by that will, we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
We are to be Holy because God commands it of us. Leviticus 19:2 Speak to the entire assembly of Israel and say to them: ‘Be holy because I, the Lord your God, am holy.
Matt 5:8 Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. A pure heart is a holy heart and that is Holiness!
Revelations 22:4 They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. We will see our holy God’s face….and that’s a fact!!!! Be encouraged today!! Know how much God loves you and has done everything to assure that you will live with Him for all eternity in His love. We have an awesome future! Hang in there! Endure what you are going through! Keep the faith!
Message for today: To him who is able to keep you from sinning and enable for you to be blameless and holy and to present you before his glorious and holy presence faultless with no guilt or shame and with the greatest joy and happiness forever….to our God and Savior who deserves all of our gratitude, praises and worship through His Son Jesus Christ to be exalted right now and for all eternity…so be it!
