Leviticus 20

1 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,

2 Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel, Whosoever he be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones.

3 And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name.

4 And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the man, when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, and kill him not:

5 Then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people.

6 And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people.

7 Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the Lord your God.

8 And ye shall keep my statutes, and do them: I am the Lord which sanctify you.

9 For every one that curseth his father or his mother shall be surely put to death: he hath cursed his father or his mother; his blood shall be upon him.

10 And the man that committeth adultery with another man’s wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour’s wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.

11 And the man that lieth with his father’s wife hath uncovered his father’s nakedness: both of them shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

12 And if a man lie with his daughter in law, both of them shall surely be put to death: they have wrought confusion; their blood shall be upon them.

13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

14 And if a man take a wife and her mother, it is wickedness: they shall be burnt with fire, both he and they; that there be no wickedness among you.

15 And if a man lie with a beast, he shall surely be put to death: and ye shall slay the beast.

16 And if a woman approach unto any beast, and lie down thereto, thou shalt kill the woman, and the beast: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

17 And if a man shall take his sister, his father’s daughter, or his mother’s daughter, and see her nakedness, and she see his nakedness; it is a wicked thing; and they shall be cut off in the sight of their people: he hath uncovered his sister’s nakedness; he shall bear his iniquity.

18 And if a man shall lie with a woman having her sickness, and shall uncover her nakedness; he hath discovered her fountain, and she hath uncovered the fountain of her blood: and both of them shall be cut off from among their people.

19 And thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy mother’s sister, nor of thy father’s sister: for he uncovereth his near kin: they shall bear their iniquity.

20 And if a man shall lie with his uncle’s wife, he hath uncovered his uncle’s nakedness: they shall bear their sin; they shall die childless.

21 And if a man shall take his brother’s wife, it is an unclean thing: he hath uncovered his brother’s nakedness; they shall be childless.

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 between unclean fowls and clean: and ye shall not make your souls abominable by beast, or by 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.

  1. 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.

    Observation #1: I was surprised to see how closely Molech and the satanic statue look alike. The extreme that God punished just having any thing to do with that, God had and has to those that sought or seek after those things

    Observation #2: Being in the world but not of this world! If we were called to be the light of the world, that means that we were ment to be in this world but separated from this worlds influence, mentality, and likeness.

    We were called to Holiness! 1 Peter 1:16; Romans 1:7; 1 Cor 1:2; 1 Thess 4:7

    We called to be different! 2 Cor 6:14-18

    We were called to be separated! Gal 1:15

  2. Nothing but the Blood of Jesus

    8 And ye shall keep my statutes, and do them: I am the Lord which sanctify you.
    Only His Blood can Sanctify us. No matter what, no matter how ONLY HIS PRECIOUS BLOOD CAN WASH US WHITE AS SNOW’!!!!!

    13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

    I don’t know how people could not see that homosexuality is a sin. Now, some ask me how can I consider a homosexual a friend.
    Matthew Judge not, that ye be not judged.
    2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
    3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

    Romans 3:23 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

    Matthew 5:43,44 You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,

    2 Thessalonians 3:14,15 If anyone does not obey what we say in this letter, take note of that person, and have nothing to do with him, that he may be ashamed. Do not regard him as an enemy, but warn him as a brother.

    In many ways, there is no big sin nor little sin they are All sins. If I desire to be forgiven, first I must forgive. I am a saint saved by grace but sin daily. What makes their sin worse than mine both lead to death and as it says in 2nd Thessalonians I must warn them as a brother (or in my case a sister) pray for them daily, and above anything else love them!!!! They all know where I stand in my believes but I pray they will know who to come to when they decide to repent.

    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.

    Songs 2:16 My beloved is mine, and I am his: he feedeth among the lilies.

    My Jesus set me aside just for Him, yes I take it and claim it personally as if He did it just for me; because once you see it in that level you grow more intimate with Him. He is mine and I am His, separate, apart from the rest, holy only to Him, my love and Saviour Jesus Christ.

  3. 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. 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. 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. (‭Leviticus‬ ‭20‬:‭22-24‬ KJV)

  4. Verses 7-8 MSG “Set yourselves apart for a holy life. Live a holy life, because I am God, your God. Do what I tell you; live the way I tell you. I am the God who makes you holy.” Same verses in NLT “So set yourselves apart to be holy, for I am the Lord your God. Keep all my decrees by putting them into practice, for I am the Lord who makes you holy.” Talk about practicing what you preach!

    Verse 24-26 MSG “I’ve told you, remember, that you will possess their land that I’m giving to you as an inheritance, a land flowing with milk and honey. I am God, your God, who has distinguished you from the nations. So live like it: Distinguish between ritually clean and unclean animals and birds. Don’t pollute yourselves with any animal or bird or crawling thing which I have marked out as unclean for you. Live holy lives before me because I, God, am holy. I have distinguished you from the nations to be my very own.” Psalm 100:3 CEV says “You know the Lord is God! He created us, and we belong to him; we are his people, the sheep in his pasture.” Ezekiel 34:31 CEV says “They are my sheep; I am their God, and I take care of them.” We are His people, so we must live like it and be distinguished and separated from this world as we were called to be.

  5. 7 Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the Lord your God.

    Amen to that! We all need to strive to sanctify to be holy in God’s eyes. Not because it saves us, but because we love God and we want to follow his commandments.

  6. As we keep reading. I am reminded of the scripture where it says that these two shall be one flesh. When they uncovered ones nakedness , they uncovered the others. This is how when we sin we are” uncovering” Jesus, crucifying him afresh. For the wages of sin is death.

  7. 7 “ ‘Consecrate yourselves and be holy, because I am the LORD your God. 8 Keep my decrees and follow them. I am the LORD, who makes you holy. NIV
    what does consecrate mean? solemnly dedicated to or set apart for a high purpose
    what higher purpose do we have than to be like Jesus. It is time we become like Jesus and be sensitive to the spirit when God is talking to us.

  8. 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.

    Don’t copy the world and the ways of the world, don’t pattern myself after a rebellious and evil world, you are set apart for a purpose. Be Holy for God is Holy.

    1 Peter 1:16
    SINCE IT IS WRITTEN, “YOU SHALL BE HOLY, FOR I AM HOLY.

    ROMANS 12:2
    DO NOT BE CONFORMED TO THIS WORLD, BUT BE TRANSFORMED BY THE RENEWAL OF YOUR MIND, THAT BY TESTING YOU MAY DISCERN WHAT IS THE WILL OF GOD, WHAT IS GOOD ACCEPTABLE AND PERFECT.

  9. “” ‘Suppose someone looks for advice from people who get messages from those who have died. Or he goes to people who talk to the spirits of the dead. And he follows their advice. Then he has not been faithful to me. So I will turn against him. I will cut him off from his people.”
    ‭‭Leviticus‬ ‭20:6‬ ‭NIRV‬‬

    Why get advice or talk to the dead? We serve the One True Living God who knows all and sees all. We can talk to the creator of the universe. 

  10. 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.

    He has brought us to this land to dwell in, and now we have our part to do, keep all His statutes and all His judgments. In order to keep His favor we must obey.

  11. Lev. 20:7-8
    7) Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the LORD your God.
    8) And ye shall keep my statutes, and do them: I am the LORD which sanctify you.

    The Lord does not want us to live like the world. He wants us to set ourselves apart from it and live a holy life in Him. The way we do this is by keeping His statutes (laws and commandments, His Word) and putting them into practice in our lives.

  12. LIFE CHOICES

    7 Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the Lord your God.
    8 And ye shall keep my statutes, and do them: I am the Lord which sanctify you.

    The Kingdom of GOD makes available to us every opportunity to prepare ourselves for eternity with GOD. Our daily LIFE CHOICES ultimately affect our eternity. The gradual decline in prayer, the gradual decline in commitment, the gradual decline in morals eventually land us in a state of backsliding.

    We are called to “SANCTIFY” ourselves (make, pronounce or keep clean). Through our LIFE CHOICES we sanctify ourselves. We choose if we are HOLY or separated unto the LORD.

    Our LIFE CHOICES is how we keep HIS statutes. Through our obedience we are made HOLY by the presence of the LORD in our lives.

  13. 27. “A man or woman who is a medium or sorcerer among you must be put to death. You must kill them by stoning. They’re responsible for their own deaths.” MSG

    Responsible – a word that seems to be quickly disappearing from our society. No matter what someone does, they always try to find someone or something else to blame it on, it’s never their fault any more. This type of thinking is contrary to God’s Word; we all have to make our own decisions on how we are going to live and act.

    I guess if these scriptures were enforced today, politicians would be lobbying for anti-stone laws.

  14. 26 You must be holy because I, the Lord, am holy. I have set you apart from all other people to be my very own. (NLT)

    We serve a God who wants our all. Just like in any relationship we must be committed to those we connect ourselves with and yes that includes God. Why should our relationship with Him be any different? More often than not our relationship with God is the one that suffers the most, when it should be our top priority. Like can you imagine giving your spouse, family, coworkers, etc. the same treatment you give God now? If you didn’t read your textbook or workers manual before you arrived, you’d be kicked out! If you only gave your family a quick routine, “I love you, you’re great, thanks for being my family.” There’d be a whole lot of disfunction. Point: God deserved our very best. We must be holy as He is. He has called us and chosen us to be His own, so let’s make sure our relationship with Him is above all else.

  15. For every one that curseth his father or his mother shall be surely put to death: he hath cursed his father or his mother; his blood shall be upon him.

    Obey your father and mothers. With long life you will be blessed. Live a life that your parents can be proud of.

  16. 4 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.

    I’m so thankful He has given us the instructions for us to be separated from this world. Follow the instructions,watch and see how The Lord will bless you.

  17. Keep God’s Statues

    Lev.20:7 Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be holy: for I am the LORD your God. And ye shall keep my statutes, and do them: I am the Lord which sanctify you.

    God’s people were to sanctify themselves (set themselves apart from the world) and be….. holy, because He was the One “sanctifying them.”

    Peace with All Men
    Heb.12:14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:

    BE KIND : )

  18. iLove to grow in the Word
    Leviticus 20:6 NLT “I will also turn against those who commit spiritual prostitution by putting their trust in mediums or in those who consult the spirits of the dead. I will cut them off from the community. 7So set yourselves apart to be holy, for I am the lord your God.

    This scripture in the New Living Translation breaks down the truth of fortune tellers and horoscopes. The fact of the the matter is when folks get into fortunes and horoscopes they are entering into spiritual prostitution. Many people coming out of the world and coming into the church might not understand this principle but the Word is clear that we as believers should stay away from these practices. Yoga is yet another example of activities that are connected with spiritual prostitution.

  19. 13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

    I listened a little to an interview a Baptist minister had with a homosexual priest and the reason given for it being ok to be homosexual was that today ‘we have a modern understanding of God’s word’, to which the Baptist minister responded: ‘God’s word is forever settled in heaven’. His word does not change. They have added to and / or changed God’s word and it’s meaning to make it fit their lifestyle. The Baptist minister also pointed out that sexual orientation is a choice not a condition. This is is root of the problem: God did not make them homosexual, instead, they gave in to impulses and desires- period. We can overcome ANY sin or sinful desire regardless of what it is – by calling on the name of Jesus and leaning on Him for help.

  20. 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 between unclean fowls and clean: and ye shall not make your souls abominable by beast, or by 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.

    God called for separation of clean and unclean in this chapter, giving us specific instruction to not walk after the way of the nation, but to inherit the land He would give us.

    Those filled with the Spirit of God, are called to walk a separated life, a life that is acceptable in His sight. We can’t always do what others are doing, and just because they are doing it, doesn’t always make it right.

    If our lives our hot with passion after the Lord, and we are spending hearing His voice through the Word of God, and prayer, He will direct our steps, and cause us to “want” to put away things that would cause us to be unclean. Somethings that may not even be sin, cause us to be unclean because of the amount of time we spend doing it.

    Lord help us to examine our lives.

  21. 7-8 “Set yourselves apart for a holy life. Live a holy life, because I am God, your God. Do what I tell you; live the way I tell you. I am the God who makes you holy.

  22. 27. “A man or woman who is a medium or sorcerer among you must be put to death. You must kill them by stoning. They’re responsible for their own deaths.” MSG

    Responsible – a word that seems to be quickly disappearing from our society. No matter what someone does, they always try to find someone or something else to blame it on, it’s never their fault any more. This type of thinking is contrary to God’s Word; we all have to make our own decisions on how we are going to live and act.

    I guess if these scriptures were enforced today, politicians would be lobbying for anti-stone laws.

  23. 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 between unclean fowls and clean: and ye shall not make your souls abominable by beast, or by 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.

    To be Christian means to be Christ like, to be separated from this world. And as Christians God has placed a higher calling on our lives, to live that separated life. He died for us so we would live for Him, but we can’t just live for Him part of the way, He wants our everything, for us to live for Him unconditionally!! He must be our first priority above all else! Lord I give You my everything, I will live for You unconditionally, no holding anything back from Your kingdom!

  24. 3 I myself will turn against them and cut them off from the community, because they have defiled my sanctuary and brought shame on my holy name by offering their children to Molech.

    Molech was a pagan god in which people sacrificed their own children. A fire would be started and then the children were thrown into it. What parent would want this? This goes to show, the parent looked after himself instead of their children. They were spiritually blinded by evil. Our God is specific about not sacrificing your children!

  25. 7 Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the Lord your God.

    We need to sanctify ourselves for God because he is Lord and he deserves our everything, that means to dress and act like apostolics like God intended!!

  26. 22 Keep all my decrees and laws and follow them, so that the land where I am bringing you to live may not vomit you out.

    I thought this was an interesting way of expressing Himself “so that the land where I am bringing you to live may not vomit you out” The place where God is trying to take us to and position us in as a church and individually in our relationship and ministry will only prosper if we are in alignment with Him. When we gradually move from the decrees and laws of God it sickens him. To the church of Laodicea God said “But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth!”(Rev 3:16). We are hot and on fire for God when we are following him, but when we stray from him we become cold. Sometimes we just need God to check our temperature so we don’t get sick spiritually or Him get sick of us.

  27. We are the lord
    NLT26) you must be holy because I the lord am holy I have set you apart from all other people to be my very own

  28. Ignore it and it will go away

    4 And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the man, when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, and kill him not:

    Does our Christian responsibility goes beyond living holy? Are we are also called to expose sin for sin? Is the old phrase “to ignore evil is to encourage it, and to keep quiet about it is to help promote it.” When those around us see us helping those in need rather than exploiting them, hear us talking with purity instead of profanity, and observe us speaking truthfully rather than deceitfully, our example will be a rebuke against sin. Refusing to participate in a dishonest business can be such a strong rebuke that it could costs us our job or a friendship.

    Our testimony will only go so far. Failure to speak out against evil is a failure to obey God. However, are we really effective pointing a finger at sinners? Some of us are barely able to keep our own spiritual and moral houses in order that we do not have the discernment, inclination, or power to confront evil in the church much less in the world. We should strive to be mature in biblical truth, obedience, holiness, and love so the natural course of our life is to expose, rebuke, and offer the remedy for every kind of evil.

  29. 4 And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the man, when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, and kill him not:

    5 Then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people.

    6 And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people.

    7 Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the Lord your God.

    8 And ye shall keep my statutes, and do them: I am the Lord which sanctify you.

    How tragic it would be to have the Lord turn his face from me! I pray that we would continue in in the faith until christ is fully formed in us. Muke us holy as you are holy Lord in Jesus name

  30. 6 And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people.

    7 Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the Lord your God

    God does not want us to seek counsel or direction from anyone that is not of God. Our pastor, elders and spiritual leaders are the only ones who have the authority to speak into our lives.. God wants his people to be sanctified and holy set a part from the world and listen to his voice and his alone.

  31. 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.

    From what I get from this chapter is to not be carnally minded. Always follow the things of God. Stay on that straight path, let God guide you daily. Our flesh is sinful and we must die of it daily. We must be set apart, in the world, but not of the world. Everything that we own is not ours, it all belongs to God. He is a just and righteous God, but he is also jealous when it comes to his children.

    SET APART:
    1. To reserve for a specific use.
    2. To make noticeable.
    That is what we need to do, set ourselves apart from that world.

    Romans 8:6-8
    6.For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
    7. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God, neither indeed can be.
    8. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

    James 1:5-6 (Amplified)
    5. If any of you is deficient in wisdom, let him ask of “the living God [Who gives] to everyone liberally and ungrudgingly, without reproaching or faultfinding, and it will be given him.
    6. Only it must be in faith that he asks with no wavering (no hesitating, no doubting). For the one who wavers (hesitates, doubts) is like the billowing surge out of the sea that is blown hither and thither tossed by the wind.

    That is how I felt for the majority of my adult life. Just being tossed about like a boat in the storm. Now that I have Jesus in my life everything is becoming more stable. I can no longer be influenced by the world. I have my eye on the prize and that is the kingdom. God is good all the time. I pray that God will always be my guiding light and keep me from being of the world. Let his light always shine down. Have a blessed day.

  32. This chapter looks at two kinds of sin
    Offenses against true religion and offence against family. Both deserve the death penalty because they are crimes that threaten the very existence of God’s people as a covenant community. But the emphasis here too is on exhortation to live a Holy life.

  33. And God repeated himself unto mosses , his statutes and commandments . Sanctify yourself a nd you will follow my statutes, God will make a way for better understanding, j ,soliz

  34. Leviticus 20:24

    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.

    Notice that the bible does not say those who are alcoholics or those who are meth addicts. It doesn’t say those who are homosexual or those who are transgender. The bible does not speak to who the person is because the bible already tells us who we are.

    We are the creation of God. We are mankind made in his likeness and image. We are not what we do but we are definitely judged by what we do.

    Everyone of these prohibitions are on the actions of the person and not the person himself. God is not singling out. He is not a bigot. He is not profiling. He sees all of us the same.

    It’s our actions that he judges.

    Just like Israel these different actions separate us from the others. We don’t live like the world or do the actions of the world.

    We are holy because he is holy.

  35. 26 You are to be holy to me because I, the Lord, am holy, and I have set you apart from the nations to be my own.

    Why fall into this world when we know that there is somthing so much better for us?! God set us aside from this world, so don’t betray God just because you want to “fit in”. I pray that we won’t be ashamed to be different in this world because in the end we know where that better place is!

  36. 7 Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the Lord your God.

    Be Holy! It us our desire to be as Christ. Then it is equally our desire to be Holy.

  37. Leviticus 20:3
    And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name.

  38. I myself will turn against them and their families and will cut them off from the community. This will happen to all who commit spiritual prostitution by worshiping Molech.
    Leviticus 20:5 NLT

    Wow when we place our trust in someone or something else other than God we are committing spiritual prostitution and can be cut off from Him. Which is why we must know who we place our trust and who we worship and that is the one true God.

  39. 7 Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the Lord your God.

    Hebrews 10:10
    By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

    Only through Christ can we be holy, to be separate from the world we can’t do it on our own, God is the helper, provider, protecter, and our guide. To follow Him is to be like Christ.

  40. 7Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the Lord your God.
    8 And ye shall keep my statutes, and do them: I am the Lord which sanctify you.
    Jesus chose us to be santified and set apart from the world. We ought to be a light to the world in the midst of the darkness. God help us not only be in holy the way we dress but also in our actions.

  41. 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.

    It’s the will of God that we live and keep our selves holy and separate.

  42. v7 Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the LORD your GOD

    If we choose to embrace HIS presence and seek HIS holiness, then we too, can be holy …. JESUS IS THR SOURCE OF OF HOLINESS.

  43. 26 You must be holy because I, the Lord, am holy. I have set you apart from all other people to be my very own. (NLT)

    When we come to Jesus there should be a change that happens. We no longer stay in the same stage. There must be a visible change that you are set apart. If you take notice, set apart, means you will get noticed. Snatification and holiness will delcare you are set apart, you are His. We are called to be holy and sanctified. Thus there should be a constant growing in “his likeness” we should become more like him. We should sound like, talk like, act like and live like Jesus. A call to be holy is a call to growing in Jesus and becoming more like Him.

  44. God has set us apart and requires us to be Holy, just like Him. May we walk with Him as Enoch did. Let us distinguish ourselves from this world of sin and self pleasure.

  45. ““I will resolutely reject persons who dabble in the occult or traffic with mediums, prostituting themselves in their practices. I will cut them off from their people. “Set yourselves apart for a holy life. Live a holy life, because I am GOD, your God. Do what I tell you; live the way I tell you. I am the GOD who makes you holy.”
    ‭‭Leviticus‬ ‭20:6-8‬ ‭MSG‬‬
    http://bible.com/97/lev.20.6-8.msg

    We can’t be like the world. Too many people are allowing themselves to step into multiple beliefs with different religions which is offensive to the Lord. We are to be separated from those who don’t know truth. Be holy and honor His word.

  46. Set apart

    8 And ye shall keep my statutes, and do them: I am the Lord which sanctify you.

    This is the difference or sets us apart. God sanctifies us when we keep his statutes.

  47. “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.” The word of God (Jesus) told them not to be as other nations, and to live according to his word. One that cannot see the significance of praying for one’s nation as well as Israel and Jerusalem, simply cannot see. Dear God, forgive us and bless us; May God Bless America, Israel, Jerusalem, and you all in Jesus name, Amen!

  48. “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.” The Lord revealed both what was done, and also what needed to be done. If we will simply love God and keep his commandments, we will grow in him. God order our steps, in Jesus name.

  49. Leviticus 20:1 the Lord said to Moses say to the Israelites any Israelite or any foreigner residing in Israel who sacrifices any of his children to molek is be put to death. The members of the community are to stone him. I myself will set my face against him and will cut him off from his people for by sacrificing his children to molek he has defile my sanctuary and profane my holy name.

    The ancients would heat this idol up with fire until it was glowing. Then they would take their newborn babies place them on the arms of the idol and watch them burn to death. I can’t help comparing todays abortion Massacre to sacrifice of children by these agent pagans in both innocent life is destroyed for the gaine of the parent.

  50. 1 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,

    The Lord spoke to Moses a lot what is the Lord speaking to us. We must let God speak to us daily through his Word , prayer, worship, church, and etc. If the Lord is not speaking to you then someone else is ……we have to be very sensitive to His touch. Use me Lord everyday

  51. 7 Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the Lord your God.

    8 And ye shall keep my statutes, and do them: I am the Lord which sanctify you.
