More on holiness from a dear friend.

Ben Lunis's picture

Today, I am sharing with you more on the subject of holiness, which came to me through Ray Broad,
a retired minister/teacher from Aukland, NZ. We became friends through my involvement with CWG Ministries. Ray has agreed to let me share with others his two-way journaling with God on holiness. Here is what Ray recorded:

My Good Lord. Yesterday, I asked you for a definition of holiness. You told me that it is your presence alone which makes things holy. This is what made the burning bush holy, the ring around Sinai and the inner apartment of the sanctuary holy. You then reminded me that you live inside your saints, (Christ in you) which, by extension makes them holy, set apart and sacred. This immediately prompted the reaction within me as to how we should respect and treat each other as sacred holy ground. I wonder, Lord, if you
could enlarge on that thought to me this morning.

Be ye holy, for I am holy. Any where I tread is holy ground. If you believe in me, I immediately enter your spirit and being life I bring life and you are said to be born again. In the same manner, because I am holy, whatever I enter also becomes holy, set apart and sacred. One of the great questions of your life is, ‘Do you see yourself as holy, because of my presence?' Then again, ‘Do you treat yourself as holy?’ Yesterday I presented the case for seeing each fellow believer as holy and set apart, today I am asking you to see yourself as holy and sacred. Your body is a temple, not made with hands. When you believe, I enter that temple which immediately makes that temple sacred and untouchable. Yesterday I prompted you to see your wife in that light, today, I want you to see yourself in that light. Be very, very careful how you treat fellow believers and how you treat your body.  Take off your shoes, for this is holy ground. This is why it so important to forgive one another, to love one another and to never judge one another. "I will make a man more precious than the golden wedge of Ophir." You will see many fellow Christians desecrating their temples by treating them carelessly and by unholy traffic, but because you see them as sacred, by reason of
my presence, you cannot so treat them with the same disrespect.

Dear Lord, to view others as holy ground is a new way of viewing fellow believers. Please open my eyes a little bit more.

Many believers treat themselves and others with disrespect because they see only through the eyes of the flesh. You have this enlightened vision of who they are in me so you cannot treat them with the same disrespect. With each new revelation of my glory comes increased responsibility to lift your game in accordance with your vision of me. You believe that my presence in another saint is by virtue of their belief in who I am. Immediately this sets them apart as holy ground and they must be treated accordingly. To treat them by their behaviour instead of their holiness is to question your own belief and my judgement of them by the cross. Call not thou unclean that which I have called clean. The great commandment to love one another is made possible simply by me giving you a fresh vision of who they are in me.

Counseled by God

by Mark and Patti Virkler | 146 Pages

Have you ever been defeated by negative emotions such as anger, fear, guilt, inferiority, condemnation or depression? Have you tried to fight them off unsuccessfully? Is there an answer that is deeper than simply trying to mentally reason yourself out of these emotions? Is there a way that Jesus can speak a word of life into the depths of your emotional despair and bring healing on a deep level?
