Personal Holiness –
An important aspect of our Covenant Relationship


Isa 35:8-10

8And 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.

 9No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there:   
 10And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.


Illustrating Holiness 1

Richard S. Taylor tell of the time in Japan when he watched some gardeners working on small roadside pine trees.  Upon inquiry he was told: “They are trimming them so as to improve their personalities.”  If trees need better “personalities,” people do too.


R.S. Taylor, A return to Christian Culture (Beacon Hill  Press of Kansas City, 1973), 14.


God is in need of our all or nothing.  I have received mails recently asking me why not talk about Christ than talk of the law, pollution, and sin, et al.  My answer always is: only perfect holiness will qualify us for eternity with Christ.  Only perfect holiness will help us achieve all that has been provided for us on this side of the earth.  Holiness is the unquestionable criteria for dominion in the spirit and physical world.  The devil can question anything, but not holiness.  Herod was afraid of John the Baptist because he was a holy man (Mark 6.20).   If you are holy, adversity will fear you.  They may come, but once you raise your holy voice and speak, they must give way.


 After we are born again and enter into positional holiness, which is just a spring board to the unlimited provisions of eternity, we must perfect holiness in the fear of God – which requires immediate action, earnestness and thoroughness in our relationship with God.  We must not gloss over issues that make the heart of God bleed. 


It is your responsibility to perfect holiness in the fear of God. The Holy Spirit will not do that for you but He will help you when you are in difficulty.
