How do we become a separated people? We all live in an earthly body, we all have special needs of food, clothing, shelter, transportation. Yet we can be a separated being one from another in a different aspect, when we take a look at the spiritual side of us. God called us out of the world, to walk in a newness of life, one filled with His Holiness. We must walk in a form of clean living, one who will lay off a world of lust, lies and deception. We are called as witnesses for the living God who dwells within us. A true born again Christian will desire to please God in every aspect of their lives, leaving behind darkness of sins with the shame of bondage which satan tries to place upon us. Jesus came to give us Light inside of our hearts, Spirit, minds, Souls, so we would know Jesus intimately.
Jesus was obedient to God in every way, listening to the Father to give instruction to Him, as he did the Father’s will. We are called to be obedient to Jesus, as His Holy Spirit guides us in everything we are to do. Come away from the false religious ways of man, to walk in the Spirit of God who created us to worship him in spirit and truth. We must learn how to control our thoughts by turning off the enemy. Jesus is constantly speaking to each one of us, but we must be willing to hear all He is saying. A song may come into our minds, is it a song of praise for God, or a worldly song for satan? We fill like everything is okay anymore, nothing is wrong, but God is a strict and jealous God, who wants us all for Himself alone.
God was willing to give His Son to us as a perfect lamb to take upon his own body the sins of the world, setting us free from darkness, sorrow, sins, shame, confusion. The list could go on and on, Jesus was willing to fulfill all of His Father’s plans, yet we are a stubborn people when it comes to living for God alone. Separation comes when we desire to walk, talk, act, dress, hear and fulfill what God is saying to us. Looking like the world, talking like a worldly person, seeing no difference in our actions, does this truly separate us from the world? No to different is to stand out in a crowd, to look like God has just put a glow all over us with His Son’s light of purity.
Leviticus 20:22-27 -22 Ye shall therefore keep all my statutes, and all my judgments, and do them: that the land whither I bring you to dwell therein, spue you not out. 23 And ye shall not walk in the manners of the nation, which I cast out before you: for they committed all these things, and therefore I abhorred them. 24 But I have said unto you, Ye shall inherit their land, and I will give it unto you to possess it, a land that floweth with milk and honey: I am the LORD your God, which have separated you from other people. 25 Ye shall therefore put difference between clean beasts and unclean, and ye shall not make your souls abominable by beast, or fowl, or by any manner of living thing that creepeth on the ground, which I have separated from you as unclean. 26 And ye shall be holy unto me: for I the LORD am holy, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be mine. 27 A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a wizard, shall surely be put to death: they shall stone them with stones: their blood shall be upon them. KJV
God has not changed from how he feels about this type of people listed above. God still is in charge of all our lives, we must learn to lean into Him, trusting Him to keep us from following after lies and deception of our enemies. Desire to walk with Jesus and to hear Him must first come from our heart, awakening our minds to seek out the truth of God. If we continue to ignore what the Holy Spirit is teaching us, by following after this world’s way of religion, then we will miss out on Heaven all together, for Jesus will not allow any unclean person to enter there. I want all of what God has to offer me, laying off this world to be clean in the eyes of God is a desire deep inside of me.
Jeremiah 9:2 Oh that I had in the wilderness a lodging place of wayfaring men; that I might leave my people, and go from them! for they all be adulterers, an assembly of treacherous men. KJV
How plainly put by Jeremiah of how a Christian truly feels, when surrounded by unbelievers of God, His Son Jesus, and their Holy Ghost Spirit. Just knowing their quickening power inside of us, makes us long for a home without darkness, evil, and sorrows. We want to be a separated people for we desire to know God fully inside of us, walking only in his Spirit which teaches us all things. Could we have been so blessed with all that we have, if God was not real? Life begins when Jesus becomes the life of our heart. Death takes hold of sinners, keeping them cold, lost in a world of darkness away from the truth of God. Jesus is the Light through which life begins, freeing us from darkness, bondage of sins, putting warmth of love deep inside of us.
John 17:16 They are not of this world, even as I am not of this world.( KJV ) Jesus came to separate us from this world, because we become a Spirit filled with His DNA. No longer do we walk with a god of this world, but we walk out of this world, into a Spiritual one filled with knowledge of God. Let us seek to be a separated people looking to God for all things, leaving off the fleshly lusts of this world. Ephesians 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.(KJV ) God has warned his people of the coming day of Jesus. God is still warning us today, as Jesus gets ready to come back much sooner they think, for we see them still walking in their lusts fulfilling their need of greed. Come ye out of this world and be ye a separate people one holy and acceptable unto the Lord, for in an hour ye think not God will send Jesus back. Know ye not that time is running out, where will your heart lie when Jesus returns? Faithful and True is our Lord Jesus, so must we be faithful and true to Him that cleanses us from all sins. Hear the word of the Lord, lift up your head for our redemption draweth nigh.
I will leave you with this verse 1 John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.(KJV)
