The-Spiritual-Gift-of-Discernment

 

Today, focus is on the gift of holiness as an aspect of divine fullness that may be imparted to reside within the living.  Among Christian believers, a gift bestowed on one is a benefit to the whole body.  Jesus Christ has demonstrated that men on the earth are to be vessels of holiness.  When Moses approached a burning bush that gave off no smoke or ashes, he heard a voice command that he take off his shoes.  What appeared to him as common soil—the ground he was standing on—was “holy”.  Until admonished and instructed by GOD, the former prince of Egypt could not recognize that a sacred event was occurring, or that holiness was being made present and revealed.  Holiness only appears and is manifest by the active presence who is GOD.  That the makeup of the three persons of a single GODhead is entirely of spirit substance, and is exalted, immortal, incorruptible, and sovereign separates them from all created beings and living creatures.  Through the Incarnation divinity appears on the earth as Jesus Christ using the flesh and form of mankind; and the possibilities for humanity to contain endowments of divine spirit content have been permanently changed.  Sinners who continue under a sentence of death for their transgression of sacred law, now are granted forgiveness, atonement, cleansing, and rebirth whereby they become a new creation.  The fighter in the “Yahoo!

The bible says you can’t see God without holiness. So what is this holiness they talk about?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:  Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.  For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man:   but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.  (2nd Peter 1:  19-21, King James Version, KJV)

“Breakthrough”, perhaps you will discern that this reply is a gift from GOD to every honest heart that wants to know him this Christmas morning: 

It is a mistake, and “human error” to analyze or seek to examine divinity using Aristotelian logic and science that seeks to classify, and describe nature in accordance with discrete elements and measurable parts.  Many mature Christian believers understand “holiness” to be one of the many inseparable (where you find one you find them all—however, perhaps not in the same measure and proportion) aspects of spirit fullness that describe the makeup of GOD.  GOD is a spirit whose substance includes balance, completeness, faith, person, presence, and other qualities that do permit communication, exchange, and interaction among sentient ones.  All created beings and living creatures have received existence, their defining nature, their material form, and distinctive traits from GOD by his imparting aspects of his own life essence (i.e., breath, spirit, Word).  Included are forbearance, gratitude, hope, humility, longsuffering, lovingkindness, meekness, purity, righteousness, wisdom, and wrath against sin.

Holiness pertains to the absolute authority, consecration, purity, and sovereignty of GOD.  Without presumption, mankind may acknowledge holiness as appearing through such elements as glory; illumination and insight; Incarnation; love; miracles; praise; obedience (the voluntary putting aside of ones own will to perform the will of another); rebirth; resurrection from death; reverence; sacred knowledge as with divine law, proverbial wisdom, and prophecy; sacrificial giving (willingness to make offering that acknowledges divinity regardless of the cost or difficulty to oneself); vigilance; thanksgiving and truth.

Of course, there is far more that could be said.  (For example, Acts 4:  26-30, King James Version (KJV):  26 The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ.  27 For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together,  28 For to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done.  29 And now, Lord, behold their threatenings:  and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word,  30 By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
