Spreading the love of Jesus...the Cowboy Way!

HOLINESS - INSIDE OUT

by Lahry Sibley

Isa 35:8  And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.

There is so much wisdom in the ordinances of YEHOVAH, in the OT. But wisdom has no power to change the heart that harbors it. Therefore these ordinances did not profit for the change of heart and the cleansing of soul. They can assist you in refraining from sin, but they are powerless to the sinner.


Heb 13:10 We have an altar, whereof they have no right to eat which serve the tabernacle.

THE CROSS where the final SACRIFICE was slain. Those who still long for animal sacrifice, have no access to the feast of the CROSS.

Heb 13:11 For the bodies of those beasts, whose blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest for sin, are burned without the camp.
Heb 13:12 Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate.

YESHUA, outside of the religious and then Biblical norm, was the final sacrifice. Those who go to HIM, must do so, as HE was, outside the camp. Outside of the city, where refuse was taken. Oh, oh, oh, there is so much to ponder here, beloved.
PLEASE NOTE: Please NOTE WHO SANCTIFIES. Is it our works, or HIS work. (Sanctify - make holy, separate).

Heb 13:13 Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach.

We DON'T DRAG THE CROSS BACK INTO THE OLD COVENANT, beloved. To claim what is HOLY, outside the CAMP (or city) is to the religious, BLASPHEMY. You won't have to concern yourself about "reproach". It will follow you around like a mad dog nipping at your heels, every step of the way!

Heb 13:14 For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.

There is NO LIFE in those religious things we have left behind. Certainly, there is no room for HIS sacrifice, in a system OR COVENANT that makes one's self acceptable unto HAYAH (I AM), THROUGH WORKS and ordinances of the BOOK OF MOSES. If you are "sanctified", you are sanctified by the Blood of the LAMB, shed by the FINAL high-priest, apart from all that was at that time deemed holy by man. In one SACRIFICE, HE made holy what centuries of sacrifice could never accomplish.

Why is it, that CHURCH PEOPLE become outraged, if you desire to speak to them about "holiness"? I do not understand......... except with their lips, they praise HIM, but their hearts have never been converted, and their words of confession are a pretense that vanishes like their words, into thin air.

Heb 13:15 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.
Heb 13:16 But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.

Do you think for a moment, that you can "Praise YEHOVAH" in HOLINESS, apart from the shed blood of our HIGH PRIEST? Without HIS HOLINESS clothing us continually? Oh my! Such deception, if you do. You are yet cloaked in darkness.

Therefore, we walk as a HOLY people, AND WE DARE NOT ALLOW ANYTHING FROM WITHOUT to enter into our inner being, that would contaminate HOLINESS. HELLO?

WE have EVERY REASON TO GIVE THANKS IN ALL THINGS. WHY? Because this holiness we have WAS NOT GIVEN BY MAN. The world didn't give it, and the world can't take it from us. It was not earned by our works, it was earned by HIS WORK! Can we even get through our day, for the interruptions our spontaneous THANKSGIVING must arouse? Oh, GLORY!

Heb 12:9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?
Heb 12:10 For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness.

How do we become a "partaker" of HIS holiness? By the chastening of our FATHER!!!! We understand that a pure woman is a chaste woman. (pure men also, are chaste). There are few things quite as beautiful as a "chaste" woman. Wow. How much more beautiful, those who are chaste of heart? THIS is why HE breaks us....AT THE CROSS. WHERE WE DIE with HIM, giving up our life for HIS LIFE, a LIVING SACRIFICE. WHY?

Rom 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

BECAUSE IT IS HOLY AND ACCEPTABLE UNTO ELOHIM. And HE cannot accept less than this. HE CANNOT. HE WILL NOT!!!!! You must DIE TO LIVE, beloved.

HEARKEN!!!!! PLEASE LISTEN TO ME!!!!!! SANCTIFICATION (being made holy by HIS shed blood over us), IS THE GREAT PROMISE OF THE NEW COVENANT. SANCTIFICATION of the soul is the heart of the matter. This is what it's all about. Can you just shrug it off and casually walk away and ignore so great a salvation? ARE YOU INSANE?

"Among the rest of that kind, it shines like the moon among the lesser stars, as
the very chief subordinate end of the Covenant of Grace, standing therein next
to the glory of God, which is the chief and ultimate end thereof. The promise of
preservation, of the Spirit, of quickening the dead soul, of faith, of justification,
of reconciliation, of adoption, and of the enjoyment of YEHOVAHas our ELOHIM, do tend unto it as their common center, and stand related to it as means to their end. They are all accomplished to sinners on design to make them holy." - Thomas Boston

Luk 1:70 As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began:
Luk 1:71 That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us;
Luk 1:72 To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant;
Luk 1:73 The oath which he sware to our father Abraham,
Luk 1:74 That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear,
Luk 1:75 In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life.

How can this not be clear? I ask puzzled? What else can be said? Last year I was invited to preach by someone. But I was told emphatically, that "I could not preach on holiness or Sabbath keeping". I was shaken to my shoes. How can this be? How can folks REJECT the very essence of the New Covenant. "OUR HOLINESS FROM HIS SHED BLOOD"!!!!!!! NO HOLINESS.....NO HOPE!!!!!!!!! WITHOUT HOLINESS, NO MAN SHALL SEE ELOHIM!!! Oh my, it just rattles me. I am so afraid for these "church kind".

What HOLINESS IS NOT! Holiness consists not in abstinence from human comforts, garbing ourselves in sack cloth and ashes, and practicing various austerities that YEHOVAH has never commanded.

Isa 45:24 Surely, shall one say, in the LORD have I righteousness and strength: even to him shall men come; and all that are incensed against him shall be ashamed.

In HIM. In the LORD have I righteousness! And in no other is there righteousness. If I'm not righteous, neither am I sanctified or holy. If I am not holy, I AM NOT JUSTIFIED. But again, be careful please. Sanctification is a work of ELOHIM, not a work of man. It is something done exclusively by HIM, through the redeeming power of the BLOOD OF THE LAMB. Accept no substitutes.

Isa 35:8 And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.

Justification through redemption makes us legally INNOCENT of moral offense before our YEHOVAH. Once this happens, on the merit of true redemption in the work of the shed blood of our LORD, then we are  set upon a highway of HOLINESS. It is how we get from the CROSS into glory of HIS kingdom. It is the narrow way, our LORD spoke of. It is inseparable from justification, but unique on it's on. You cannot get on the way of holiness, if you are nor first justified, cleansed from all unrighteousness. Then and only then, is the narrow gate that few find, opened to you. This is the way of HOLINESS. SANCTIFICATION. SEPARATENESS. We travel it moment by moment. It is the air we breathe in HIS kingdom. HALLELUYAH. There is life after justification!!!!! That life is a life hidden exclusively for our LORD, in HIM. We no longer belong to the rudiments of this world. We are exclusively HIS. Amen.
