The keeper of keys

 I am the Lord who opens and closes doors 

See I have set before you the door to eternal life 

Walk in my steps for I have paved the way 

Trust in my Word and eat the scroll I have set before you.

Does it not taste sweet as honey 

Do not be afraid I shall show you my kingdom in all its glory 

It has always been my plan to visit you

Come into my presence and feel my joy and love 

Where can you hide from me? 

Be amazed I shall pour out astounding abundance into your life 

Search me out and seek me with all your heart

Reach out and take hold of my hand and I shall guide you through crooked and twisted roads

I make high mountains like plains and deserts like green pastures 

See, I shall make salt water as fresh and life shall return where there once was death and decay for I am the resurrection and the life.

As the risen Son shines upon your life. The fog that surrounds you shall clear like the morning mist. The night has ended and a great light has dawned over your life 

I am holy and righteous and completely in love with my creation

Yet there is one who seeks to separate you from me. Do not trust every voice you hear for the enemy loves to whisper lies and untruths in your ear.

I am the God who formed you in your mother's womb 

I stretch out the heavens like a curtain 

I set the planets in their orbits and know the stars by name

My storehouses bring the rain in due season and I hang the Earth upon nothing.

I shall pour out blessings like a torrent  You will barely have enough room and like the widow, the oil shall not run dry

When the Spirit of God hovers, moves, flutters, and shakes

Our hovering, moving, fluttering, and shaking God 

This aspect of God is only described in three verses in the Old Testament 

Gen 1:2
And the earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

Deu 32:11
As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings:

Jer 23:9
Mine heart within me is broken because of the prophets; all my bones shake; I am like a drunken man, and like a man whom wine hath overcome, because of the LORD, and because of the words of his holiness.

In Gen 1:1  the Spirit of God was MOVING over the waters 

In Deu 32:11 A mother eagle prepares herself by FLUTTERING over her young 

In Jer 23:9 A prophet becomes drunk in the Spirit: ...all his bones SHOOK...

So what can we learn from these three verses about our hovering, fluttering, and shaking God?

As I was pondering these verses I had an image of warriors in the desert calling in a rescue after a fierce battle and a Chinook helicopter came into land. Can you imagine that? This isn't the gentle hovering of a butterfly or hummingbird? This is the extreme downdraft of a massive military helicopter. Whilst the soldiers are safe, the ground around them is kicked up to such an extent that only when all the loose ground around them had been blown away and the helicopter touched down did they climb aboard the helicopter. And then the massive engines of the chinook kicked up the dust again 

God is hovering over your situation right now. He is preparing to land, to carry you to safety. To shake the ground beneath you to such an extent that all the looseness of the situation or circumstance you are in will be shaken and He will carry you to a new place. It will be as though your natural sense of your surroundings is blotted out and all you will see is the guiding hand of the Lord.

You will lose the sense of the importance of the situation you are in you will be like the proverbial drunk man you won't care what others think, You will be like Superman possessing supernatural strength.

What is God Hiding from you?

Acts 7:55-56.

But Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, gazed steadily into heaven and saw the glory of God, and he saw Jesus standing in the place of honor at God’s right hand. And he told them, “Look, I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing in the place of honor at God’s right hand!”

From the account of the stoning of Stephen, we can see that when things get really rough God will shift our gaze toward heaven. And we see Jesus in all His Glory.

I want to encourage you when you are in pain and suffering to ask God to open up the heavens in order that your perception of earthly senses be dulled and your sense of heavenly and spiritual things be heightened.

As Stephen was being stoned he kept his focus on heaven and not his problems

What is a mantle? What are spiritual weapons?

1Ki 19:19

So he departed thence and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, who was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen before him, and he with the twelfth: and Elijah passed by him, and cast his mantle upon him.

A mantle represents an anointing. They come in various types Joy, Servanthood, Power, etc...

Do you know what your mantle is?

What about someone else?

Ask God to show you the various types of mantles that operate in your community.

2Co 10:4

We use God's mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments.

Eph 6:14
Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness. For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared. In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil. Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere

We do not wage war like humans, for we wage war like spiritual children of God.

Truth, Righteousness, peace(Gospel), Faith, Salvation, Sword of the Spirit, Tongues(pray in the spirit). 

Ask God to reveal to you what weapons you hold and ask for those which you do not hold.

Ask Him to teach you how to use them.

I shall provide says the Lord

It has always been my desire to see my people prosper says the Lord

I am Jehovah Jireh and I shall provide.

See, I shall be true to you, for my name is Faithful and True

Throughout all generations, I have provided for my children 

Watch as I pour out blessing upon blessing into your life

See, I shall send my messenger with gifts and provisions in times of need.

My storehouse has everything you need 

Look it's in plain sight. Do you not see? Do you not perceive?

Ask me for bread do I not give it daily as I gave manna in the wilderness.    

The harvest is plentiful for I have sent rain and sun in due season 

As surely as day follows night, I shall provide for my people, it was I who created the heavens in all their vast array. 

It is I who stretches out the heavens and causes the snow and the rain.

You have run like a sprinter but you grow tired and weary, and your resources are depleted

You have exploded out of the starting gate at great speed but now you grow tired 

Surely I shall renew your strength and shall carry you on Eagles wings. I shall shelter you under my wings like the swan, her young.

See I have placed you on the higher path where no wolf can reach for wolves only climb as high as I will.

Learn to live at altitude for I shall carry you on my wings 

And as you grow, you will learn to soar like the Eagles, for I am both the wind and the sun: I cause the rising wind and shimmering haze.


Prophetic mantles and giftings

A lot can be determined about a prophet from their God-given name. Samuel means heard by God He was dedicated to the Lord at birth and raised by anointed people in the temple.

There is a lot to be said about the way in which a child is raised and the anointing and mantle they carry.
That said your past experience doesn't determine your present or your future for you are a new creation of God.

1 sam 3:19

As Samuel grew up, the LORD was with him, and everything Samuel said proved to be reliable.

Ask God to be like Samuel in your gifting: that none of your words would fall to the ground unfulfilled and that you will be instrumental in the raising of the holy people of God, especially in the prophetic giftings.

practice the seer gift with a friend or family member

Act 21:10

Several days later a man named Agabus, who also had the gift of prophecy, arrived from Judea. He came over, took Paul’s belt, and bound his own feet and hands with it. Then he said, “The Holy Spirit declares, ‘So shall the owner of this belt be bound by the Jewish leaders in Jerusalem and turned over to the Gentiles.’” When we heard this, we and the local believers all begged Paul not to go on to Jerusalem. But he said, “Why all this weeping? You are breaking my heart! I am ready not only to be jailed at Jerusalem but even to die for the sake of the Lord Jesus.” When it was clear that we couldn’t persuade him, we gave up and said, “The Lord’s will be done.”

Here Agabus had a clear word from God about Paul and it was accurate and all those with him bore witness to both the word and the demonstration. 

Gather with friends or family members and ask the Holy Spirit to show something about them then ask them if it's accurate.

The importance of fellowship with prophetic people

1Sa 10:10

When Saul and his servant arrived at Gibeah, they saw a group of prophets coming toward them. Then the Spirit of God came powerfully upon Saul, and he, too, began to prophesy.

1Sa 19:19
When the report reached Saul that David was at Naioth in Ramah, he sent troops to capture him. But when they arrived and saw Samuel leading a group of prophets who were prophesying, the Spirit of God came upon Saul’s men, and they also began to prophesy. When Saul heard what had happened, he sent other troops, but they, too, prophesied! The same thing happened a third time. Finally, Saul himself went to Ramah and arrived at the great well in Secu. “Where are Samuel and David?” he demanded.
“They are at Naioth in Ramah,” someone told him. But on the way to Naioth in Ramah the Spirit of God came even upon Saul, and he, too, began to prophesy all the way to Naioth! He tore off his clothes and lay naked on the ground all day and all night, prophesying in the presence of Samuel. The people who were watching exclaimed, “What? Is even Saul a prophet?”

Notice how spending time in fellowship with prophetic people imparts prophetic gifting. Here we see Saul who was not naturally prophetic prophesy when in the company of prophets 

It was not an isolated incident either. The spirit of God came upon some of Saul's men at Naioth in Ramah. The news went back to Saul and he sent other soldiers and they too began to prophesy. Saul himself traveled to Naioth and asked where Samuel and David were, He went to join them and he too began to prophesy.

If you want to develop a prophetic gifting then seek out prophetic people to fellowship with

When God invites personally

Rev 4:1
Then as I looked, I saw a door standing open in heaven, and the same voice I had heard before spoke to me like a trumpet blast. The voice said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must happen after this.”

Rev 4:2
And instantly I was in the Spirit, and I saw a throne in heaven and someone sitting on it.

Rev 11:11

But after three and a half days, God breathed life into them, and they stood up! Terror struck all who were staring at them.

Rev 11:12
Then a loud voice from heaven called to the two prophets, “Come up here!” And they rose to heaven in a cloud as their enemies watched.

There are times when God will invite you personally 'Come up here' He said to John. and when God asks you 'What do you see? He is developing your spiritual gifts 

Jer 1:11
Then the LORD said to me, “Look, Jeremiah! What do you see?”And I replied, “I see a branch from an almond tree.”

Amos 7:8

And the LORD said to me, “Amos, what do you see?” I answered, “A plumb line.” And the Lord replied, “I will test my people with this plumb line. I will no longer ignore all their sins.

Meditate on these scriptures and then ask Him to teach you and take you into greater depths of His Spirit and Kingdom.

Companionship with God

 You can be in the same room with someone and barely notice they are there. This happens all time at doctor's surgeries on buses and at supermarket checkouts. When you desire companionship with someone you communicate with intention, and you look at them, when this happens there is an exchange of dialogue, and intimacy develops. 

Make God your companion and whether there is verbal communication or non-verbal communication you are aware of His presence 

Learn what grieves him 

Walk with Him 

Talk with Him 

Pray with Him 

And as you do so you will develop a greater level of friendship and a deeper level of intimacy with the Holy Spirit. 

John 16:13

When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own but will tell you what he has heard. He will tell you about the future.

When you make the Holy Spirit your companion He will speak to you at a greater level of intimacy.

Meditate on the Word It is the safest way into the seer dimension

John 10:7 so he explained it to them: “I tell you the truth, I am the gate for the sheep.

John 14:6 Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.

John 1:1-5

In the beginning, the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. He existed in the beginning with God. God created everything through him, and nothing was created except through him. The Word gave life to everything that was created, and his life brought light to everyone. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.

Heb 4:12

For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.

Jesus described himself as a gate that is a way or path He is the only way to the Father.

Meditating on the Word is the safest way to enter the seer dimension because Jesus is the Word made flesh. There is no chance of entering the seer dimension through a demonic backdoor or perverted portal.

When you meditate on the Word you are flooding your soul with light and as God renews your mind to the truth and makes you more sensitive to the Holy Spirit. There is less chance of you being deceived.

There is every likelihood that you will see in your mind's eye the scene played out before you. You may even see an open vision of the bible passage you are meditating on. 


Friday 16 June 2023

Watch and pray

Throughout the scripture we are told to watch and pray. How can we watch if don't first 'see'
this is what Habakkuk said 

Habakkuk 2:1

I will climb up to my watchtower and stand at my guardpost. There I will wait to see what the LORD says and how he will answer my complaint.

There is a position in the spirit dimension higher than your usual place.You need to position yourself to a higher vantage point so You can 'see' further into the seer dimensions 

Jesus said in luke 21;34-36

“Watch out! Don’t let your hearts be dulled by carousing and drunkenness, and by the worries of this life. Don’t let that Day catch you unaware,

Matthew 26:40 

Then he returned to the disciples and found them asleep. He said to Peter, “Couldn’t you watch with me even one hour? 

Keep watch and pray, so that you will not give in to temptation. For the spirit is willing, but the body is weak!”

Nobody said it was easy even the disciples of Jesus could not watch one hour. So learn to discipline yourself through comtemplative prayer. Many of us myself included promise and vow to ourselves to prayer everyday but often things get in the way. So set your alarm clock 15 mins earlier than needed. Decide in your heart and mind to do it. But don't condemn yourself if you miss it sometimes.

In Galatians 6:8 it says 

Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful nature will harvest decay and death from that sinful nature. But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit

The spirit man must be strengthened and the carnal man weakened. Every time you speak in tongues or position yourself to experience God's presence through contemplative prayer you strengthen your spirit man.

Surely it's time for the sleeping church to wake up and 'see' demon spirits attached to people and interseed over what they see. 

Surely it's time for seasons of blessing revealed to the seers to be reported to the church to strengthen and edify the body of Christ, his church.

Impartation and activation.

Rom 1:11
For I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to strengthen you,

1Co 2:6
Yet among the mature, we do impart wisdom, although it is not a wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are doomed to pass away.

1Co 2:7
But we impart a secret and hidden wisdom of God, which God decreed before the ages for our glorification.

1Co 2:13
And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who possess the Spirit.

Eph 4:29
Let no evil talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for edifying, as fits the occasion, that it may impart grace to those who hear.

Impartation is the receiving of a gift by faith and by that same faith the gift is activated by use.

Let me give a human example if you are seated on an airplane and there is someone sitting opposite you If you dont look you wont see them if you glimpse them through the corner of your eye you wont see much it is only when you look with intention that you notice their clothing, their eye colour, their countenance etc you will be able to see and examine the finer details with intention. 

Or if you buy a car it wont take you anywhere until you sit in the drivers seat and turn the engine on by doing these two things you are positioning yourself to drive and you will move from where you are to your destination.

The reality is that if you recieve a gift you are expected to use it.

So the gift is under the christmas tree, it has your name on it, the time for opening the presents has long since past and you just look at it wanting to open it and use it, but you just sit there staring into space. You know its available and within reach but lack of faith and trust prevents you from reaching out and taking hold of it and using it.

Imagine the concern of the gift giver 
Some of you are exactly like this.

I tell you surely the time is now. 

Reach out take hold of your gift and start to use it 
For some of you, the gift was imparted years ago, you received it. It's within you but you never used it so it never activated 

Become intentional  about how you use your gifting Surely now is the time to act.   

Impartation and activation must be part of the activity of the church as it was in bible times

Do you have a gift then impartation and activation must be part of your edification and strengthening of the church. Do not wait to be asked, offer it freely. Make the first move yourself, ask God who is asking, and then be bold and talk to them 


I will do it says the lord

For the Lord, your Redeemer, and He who formed you from the womb says this, “I am the Lord, Maker of all things, Who alone stretches out the heavens, Who spreads out the earth by Myself, Frustrating the signs and confounding the omens of boasters (false prophets), Making fools out of fortune-tellers, Counteracting the wise And making their knowledge ridiculous, Confirming the word of His servant And carrying out the plan of His messengers.

Isaiah 44:24‭-‬26 AMP

Who is The Holy One? He is God Almighty

What is He to you? He is your redeemer. He formed you in your mother's womb.

What has He done? He made all things. He stretches out the heavens He spreads the Earth out

His actions against darkness are these : 

He frustrates and confounds false prophets

He makes fools of fortune tellers 

He counteracts the wise making their knowledge ridiculous

His actions for His servants are these:

He confirms the word of His servants.

He carries out their plans. 

Listen to what the Lord says to you

I who made all things shall do great wonders in these days 

I shall frustrate the wisdom of this world  

I shall make their knowledge foolish.

Listen, you who speak words over people in exchange for cash without any knowledge of me. 

You who speak fortunes. Listen to me repent of your divinations. and necromancy.

Come to me. Learn from me. I will transform your very being.

Listen to me servant of the Most High

When my plans become your plans and my words become your words.

I shall accomplish great and wonderful things in these days, just as I have planned.

Are we not of one mind and spirit? 

I tell you as your mind and my mind are joined together 

We have one plan and one purpose.

Everything I have planned shall be accomplished

The God who sees

Then she called the name of the Lord who spoke to her, “You are God Who Sees”; for she said, “Have I not even here [in the wilderness] remained alive after seeing Him [who sees me with understanding and compassion]?”

Genesis 16:13 AMP

among them the god of this world [Satan] has blinded the minds of the unbelieving to prevent them from seeing the illuminating light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

2 Corinthians 4:4 AMP

Now the serpent was more crafty (subtle, skilled in deceit) than any living creature of the field which the Lord God had made. And the serpent (Satan) said to the woman, “Can it really be that God has said, ‘You shall not eat from any tree of the garden’?” except the fruit from the tree which is in the middle of the garden. God said, ‘You shall not eat from it nor touch it, otherwise you will die.’ ” For God knows that on the day you eat from it, your eyes will be opened [that is, you will have greater awareness], and you will be like God, knowing [the difference between] good and evil.” And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food and that it was delightful to look at, and a tree to be desired in order to make one wise and insightful, she took some of its fruit and ate it; and she also gave some to her husband with her, and he ate. Then the eyes of the two of them were opened [that is, their awareness increased], and they knew that they were naked; and they fastened fig leaves together and made themselves coverings.

Genesis 3:1‭, ‬3‭, ‬5‭-‬7 AMP

Our God is all-seeing. He is both omnipotent and omnipresent. 

He is all-powerful and exists outside of space-time for He is the Creator of all.

And we are created in His image to both see and know in the spiritual dimension.

But there is an ancient enemy who blinds the eyes of man and prevents him from seeing God's wonderful truth.  

This can be seen in the account of the fall of man. See how satan paints a picture for Eve to perceive with her mind's eye.

Ask yourself, why do you not see into the spiritual realm?

Jesus answered him, “I assure you and most solemnly say to you, unless a person is born again [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, sanctified], he cannot [ever] see and experience the kingdom of God.”

John 3:3 AMP

Here, Jesus tells us we can both see and know the kingdom of God.

It is your spiritual right as a believer to see and experience the kingdom of God

Pursue [this] love [with eagerness, make it your goal], yet earnestly desire and cultivate the spiritual gifts [to be used by believers for the benefit of the church], but especially that you may prophesy [to foretell the future, to speak a new message from God to the people].

1 Corinthians 14:1 AMP

Who's, is it to seek to prophesy and foretell the future? 

You, that's who!

Learn to see and know God's revelation for the future.

Remember, He who is within you is greater than he who is in the world.

We are to learn and cultivate spiritual gifts.

What does this mean in practice?

Ask God to show you, a picture, a vision, a feeling for a fellow believer.

and in the spirit of Psalm 46:10 still and know that I am God... set aside some time and go to a quiet place to seek God. 

Allow Him to speak to your spirit man.

For everyone who lives on milk is [doctrinally inexperienced and] unskilled in the word of righteousness, since he is a spiritual infant. But solid food is for the [spiritually] mature, whose senses are trained by practice to distinguish between what is morally good and what is evil.

Hebrews 5:13‭-‬14 AMP

I am the God who sees and knows 

Ask me and I will show all the wisdom of heaven.

Come close to me and I will be both father and friend.

I will show you when to speak and when to be silent.

Allow me to possess you completely and I will rend the heavens and come down in your midst.

I will show the Kingdom of God.

See, I have made you a prince in my Kingdom

You are heir to everything I have 

Ask me for understanding 

Ask me for wisdom

Ask me for knowledge 

Surely I shall answer you 

Let those with eyes see and those with ears hear.

See, your life is like an open book before me. 

I see and know all things

I know everything there is to know about you for I formed you in your mother's womb.

Where can you hide from me?

I am calling you to see and know 

I am calling you to show my wisdom

I am calling you to know me: I shall show my heart of compassion.

I shall write a new name over you. 

"Eyes wide open" shall be your new name for that is what you will experience in these days.




Monday 12 June 2023

Made Holy through mediation

I am the Lord Almighty.

I came to deliver all men from the curse of death, (separation from God), for all time.

I have always been.

From eternity to eternity I have pursued my people.

I have chased after you in both good times and bad.

You are my beloved, it has always been my desire to become one with you.

I shall cover you with robes of white as a covering.

No longer will your garments be stained 

Become one with me and watch as I cause growth and fulfillment.

See, I have called forth a move. 

In these days I shall come.

My kingdom shall advance and grow among you.

You will sense my presence for I shall be in your midst.

Holiness and Indwelling

 Have them build a sanctuary for Me, so that I may dwell among them.

Exodus 25:8 AMP

I will sanctify the Tent of Meeting and the altar [of burnt offering]; also I will sanctify Aaron and his sons to serve as priests to Me. I will dwell among the sons of Israel and be their God.

Exodus 29:44‭-‬45 AMP

The presence of God makes holy, as at the burning bush.

How much more so wherever He makes His permanent abode?

It is as the indwelling God, that He sanctifies the house and makes it holy. 

He reveals Himself as the Holy One in Israel.

Holiness is not so much an attribute but a part of His essential being. He cannot be anything other than holy.

He instructs the Israelites to make a dwelling for Him and the dwelling place ( the holy of holies ) foreshadows His indwelling of His people.

From the holy place comes the two-fold voice, the call to make holy, and the promise to make holy

Obedience is key to the master's indwelling and only He can make the house holy, However, do not seek holiness as an attribute or gift. Holiness is neither of these. It must be sought in God alone, His person.

It is Him, dwelling in our hearts by faith (the gift of God) that makes us Holy. 

Let Him have complete ownership of you, spirit, soul, and body.

Hear the call of God to be holy as He is holy, and stand by faith on His promise to make holy. 

He made the inner court holy, and so too, He makes our hearts holy. 

He made the outer court holy too, and so, He makes our body holy.

Open your inmost being to Him. 

Allow Him to possess and dwell with you completely for you are not your own.


Sunday 4 June 2023

Holiness and Obedience

Exodus 19:4-6

4 ‘You yourselves have seen what I did to Egypt, and how I carried you on eagles’ wings and brought you to myself. 5 Now if you obey me fully and keep my covenant, then out of all nations you will be my treasured possession. Although the whole earth is mine, 6 you[a] will be for me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.’ These are the words you are to speak to the Israelites.”

See, I have done a wonderful thing. I have brought you out of slavery, to worship me on my holy mountain. I have redeemed you and sanctified you. You are mine.

If you choose by your own free will to obey my commands. I will show you my glory and you shall be my most holy nation: You shall be a kingdom of priests and I shall esteem you and value you as my most precious people.

Obedience to God's commands is key to manifesting God's holiness It is the link between holiness and redemption. As we purposeful subjugate our will to His will, He will communicate to us His holiness.

I have the film The Ten Commandments on Youtube. The one with Charlton Heston and Yul Brynner.

My mind is taken to the moment when Moses came down the mountain after spending 40 days in God's most holy presence. The Jews had ruined themselves with drunkenness, orgies, prostitution, and even Aaron built a Golden calf for the people to worship. 

I recall that immortal line "Those who will not live by the law shall die by the law" and he threw the stone tablets hewn by God's own hand into the cliff and they exploded. and the earth shook and open its bowels to swallow the Jewish nation. Yet even here at this time, God relents from His fierce anger when those who repented flocked to Aaron's side. Aaron was filled with remorse and shame.

Will you subjugate your own desires and wants for His Most Holy purpose? 

If yes, then He shall open the door to His most joyful purposes and you will find peace and fulfillment in His will for that is the purpose he created you.

If not, then... "those who will not live by the law will die by the law".

Let the answer be yes. 


Holiness and majesty

 Who is like You among the gods, O Lord? Who is like You, majestic in holiness, Awesome in splendor, working wonders? You in Your loving kindness and goodness have led the people whom You have redeemed; In Your strength, You have guided them with care to Your holy habitation. You will bring them [into the land of promise] and plant them on the mountain (Mt. Moriah in Jerusalem) of Your inheritance, The place, O Lord, You have made for Your dwelling [among them], The sanctuary, O Lord, which Your hands have established.

Exodus 15:11‭, ‬13‭, ‬17 AMP

God is majestic in holiness, and here God is guiding His once enslaved but now redeemed people into His holiness. The people shall inhabit the place of His holiness. God and His redeemed and now sanctified people shall live in the same place. His sanctuary. 

There I will meet with the Israelites, and the Tent of Meeting shall be sanctified by My glory [the Shekinah, God’s dwelling presence].

Exodus 29:43 AMP

Then Moses said to Aaron, “This is what the Lord said: ‘I will be treated as holy by those who approach Me, And before all the people I will be honored.’ ” So Aaron, therefore, said nothing.

Leviticus 10:3 AMP

Only the priests could approach God. And it is through the priests that the glory, majesty, and holiness of God, are revealed to His people. 

And one called out to another, saying, “Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord of hosts; The whole earth is filled with His glory.”

Isaiah 6:3 AMP

Consider the seraphim singing of God's holiness ...The whole earth is filled with His glory.

The glory, majesty, and holiness of God are made manifest for all to see.  

Our God dwells in a consuming fire and light that are unapproachable. This can be seen in the account of Moses and the burning bush. Both fire and light speak of His holiness. As Moses grew in His faith to approach God He began to carry His presence. So much so that his countenance was changed and his face shone.

Listen to me, my child.

I shall lead you to dwell in my holiness 

I shall be both with you and in you

I shall surround you with my glory, majesty, and holiness.

You shall carry my presence with you wherever you go. 

People will be drawn to you because of me says the Lord.

You shall manifest my holiness before the people. 

The whole earth shall look at you and be amazed.

Through you, I shall be glorified in the whole earth.

Leaders, Cities, Towns, Nations, Kingdoms, and Peoples 

shall be drawn to me in these days for I shall be among my people. 

And they shall manifest my glory, majesty, and holiness

Watch and be amazed at what I am doing among my people and on the earth.

Surely, I shall be honored and glorified by my people 

It is as you lose sight of self, in favour of  me that you manifest my glory

I have redeemed you, you are mine.

You are not your own.

Praise me before men and I shall show both them and you my holiness for I dwell in the praises of my people.

Never before has a generation needed God's holiness like this generation. 

A generation starved of the knowledge of me.

Tell me, who shall tell them and who shall go

What shall be your answer?

Holiness and redemption

 “Sanctify to Me [that is, set apart for My purpose] every firstborn, the first offspring of every womb among the children of Israel, both of man and of animal; it is Mine.”

Exodus 13:2 AMP

Again the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Behold, I have taken the Levites from among the sons of Israel instead of and as a substitute for every firstborn, that is, the first that opens the womb among the Israelites. So the Levites shall be Mine, for all the firstborn are Mine. On the day that I killed all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, I consecrated for Myself all the firstborn in Israel, both man and animal. They shall be mine; I am the Lord.”

Numbers 3:11‭-‬13 AMP

For I am the Lord who brought you up from the land of Egypt to be your God; therefore you shall be holy, for I am holy.’ ”

Leviticus 11:45 AMP

But now, this is what the Lord, your Creator says, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel, “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you [from captivity]; I have called you by name; you are Mine!

Isaiah 43:1 AMP

God provides a way out from the curse of the angel of death in that first Passover. It was Pharaoh's own words that were the deciding factor in God sending the angel of death to smite the firstborn of all Egypt. God, reveals himself as Redeemer and Deliverer. And to the Israelites, it was to be the link between the seen and temporal to the unseen and spiritual. 

As soon as the people are taken out and delivered from the oppression of the pharaoh, his very first act is to sanctify to himself every firstborn both human and animal. Not only did God deliver the Israelites from oppression and tyranny. But He delivered them into his all-surpassing holiness. You shall be holy for I am holy was his declaration. 

There can be no holiness without redemption (Isaiah 43:1). First, God redeems then sanctifies and makes holy. Every true Israelite ( and now gentile as we have been grafted in ) has been redeemed and made holy (set apart for his purposes).  

I am the Lord Almighty. 

My dear children, have you heard my voice. I speak to you softly and gently and say to you 'You are mine to use for my purposes'. 

Listen for my voice calling you to holiness. 

I created you. You are mine 

I redeemed you. You are mine 

I sanctified you and made you holy. You are mine.

Learn to live every day under the power of Jesus' precious blood. 

Let it cover your sin and shame. 

Learn to see yourself through God's eyes. As pure and holy.

Let Him who redeemed and sanctified you possess you completely. You are not your own. You belong to Him, to use as He sees fit, for his most holy purpose.

Be amazed at what I will do when you seek me with all your heart.

Come to me and let not your heart be dismayed for I have purchased you at my own cost. 

You are mine.

Surely, I will give you back every stolen blessing and provision. 

The doors to abundance have been opened. 

I will grant you favor from on high.

See, I have sent angels to both protect and minister.

Do you not see them? Or sense their presence?

Ask me and I shall open your eyes to perceive that which is unseen.

You are at His disposal, to do with, as He pleases.

Remember you are His child and He so much desires to share his plans with you. 

You are complete. There is nothing missing. In Him, you live and have your being.
