Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel – Exodus 19:5-6

 

Beloved, if there is any resolution you need to make and determinedly do , by the grace of God, it is to be  and remain  to be  a child of God in deed .
The world around you might frown, mock , disdain your resolute piousness to God. But then seek for more of His grace to sustain this paternal  relationship between you and your dear  loving and gracious heavenly Father.
This becomes necessary because God’s love for His children is indescribable, inexplanable and unfathomable. See how the scriptures describe it.

Zephaniah 3:17  The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.

Isaiah 62:5  For as a young man marrieth a virgin, so shall thy sons marry thee: and as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee.

Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people – Exodus 19:5-6
This paternal or child father relationship with God if sustained as a lifestyle for a lifetime, makes you a beneficiary of His eternal inheritances. This shall be your portion in Jesus name.

Mal 3:17   And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.

Rev 21:3 — Rev 21:4  And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people – Exodus 19:5-6
Beloved, no doubt this is your utmost desire and by His grace you in particular shall attain it in Jesus name.
  For you to realize this noble and worthwhile dream, there is just one thing you must do and be doing till Jesus comes.
Make yourself a peculiar treasure to God. Infact this is one  and most unchanging aspiration of God from every one professing religion. See it.

Exo 19:5 — Exo 19:6  Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.

  Beloved, see how several other scriptures affirmed this aspiration of God. You must endeavor to attain it for your earthly and eternal well-being.

1 Peter 2:9  But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

Deuteronomy 7:6  For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God: the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.

Deuteronomy 14:2  For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God, and the Lord hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth.

1 Kings 8:53  For thou didst separate them from among all the people of the earth, to be thine inheritance, as thou spakest by the hand of Moses thy servant, when thou broughtest our fathers out of Egypt, O Lord God.

Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people – Exodus 19:5-6
Beloved for you to become peculiar to God, a steep price was paid by Christ to purchase you.
To be peculiar means to be purchased by a great price. See it.

Titus 2:14  Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

Exodus 15:16  Fear and dread shall fall upon them; by the greatness of thine arm they shall be as still as a stone; till thy people pass over, O Lord, till the people pass over, which thou hast purchased.

Rev 1:5 — Rev 1:6  And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

Revelation 5:9  And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;

  Now  that you have known the steep price of purchasing you before you became a peculiar treasure.
Also now that you have come to understand the noble prize of eternal inheritances awaiting you after the dawning rapture, what are you going to do?
Will you strive with all your might to ensure you possess this worthwhile eternal inheritances or will you allow it to slip of your hands?  God forbid.
   See those who will inherit the heritages of peculiar treasures.

Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people – Exodus 19:5-6

Jn 10:27 — Jn 10:28  My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

Are you hearing His voice? What is His voice?

Deu 28:1 — Deu 28:2  And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God.

Exodus 19:5  Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:

Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people – Exodus 19:5-6
Beloved, His voice is His unfailing, unchanging, eternal, infallible words in the Bible. See some of them and check up whether you in particular are  hearing His voice or not?
 Remember, don’t ever forget this. It is this words according to our Lord, that will determine where you in particular shall spend eternity.

Mat 7:21 — Mat 7:23  Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Jn 12:46 — Jn 12:48  I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.

Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people – Exodus 19:5-6
So patiently and gently go through these His voices and check up without any presumption, whether you are hearing them or not, having discovered  the consequences of not hearing anyone of them.

2 Corinthians 5:17  Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

Are you a new creature? Has your language, your attitude, your interaction with others, your dressing, have you really changed and now conform and transformed into doing God’s perfect will?

Exodus 32:33  And the Lord said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.

Are you really free from little foxes and besetting sins and compromise that are capable of removing your name from the book of life?

Rom 12:1 — Rom 12:2  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. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Are you presenting your bodies a living sacrifice daily to God or you use it doing defiling things capable of hindering your readiness for the dawning rapture or having access to heaven?

Are you living now for Christ or you are still insatiably pursing ephemeral at all cost, even at the express of your precious undying soul?

Mat 5:27 — Mat 5:30  Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

Are you free from immorality, uncleanness, masturbation, inordinate affections and lust in the heart?

Philippians 2:15  That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

Luk 19:8 — Luk 19:9  And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord; Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold.

Have you done your restitutions?  Restore stollen or ill-gotten wealth it any thing you deceitfully acquired, written lies or spoken lies? How about your daily adultery with the unlawful spouse in your house, when your lawful spouse is still alive?

1Jo 2:15 — 1Jo 2:17  Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people – Exodus 19:5-6

Rev 22:18 — Rev 22:19  For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

Are you still picking and choosing what to believe and what to obey in the Bible, when you know the consequences of doing so According to this passage?

2Pe 2:20 — 2Pe 2:22  For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.

Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people – Exodus 19:5-6
Have you backslided like Demas and Judas? Are you now looking back like Lots wife?  What you were saved from before, you are going back to them?

Isa 33:15 — Isa 33:17  He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil; He shall dwell on high:his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks:bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure. Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off.

Do you give bribe and receive bribe?  Are  your hands free from blood shed of abortion,?

Rev 3:10 — Rev 3:11  Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.
