Beloved, all glory goes to your loving Father in heaven for bringing you to another new month. No doubt the seventh month came with His challenges, but glory be to God that you in particular survived all of them. God has brought you to this eighth month for a unique purpose . To move you forward and take you higher. He s particularly concerned that you have dwelt long enough in a particular position. See His new plans for you in this new month.

Deuteronomy 2:2-3. And the Lord spake unto me, saying, Ye have compassed this mountain long enough: turn you northward.

The biblical meaning of northward is going forward and higher. These shall be your portion in Jesus name. However, as you rejoice your safe landing in the new month, be also mindful, that it has brought you nearer  and nearer to the unfolding of God plans for the end time, which begins with the dawning rapture.
So continue in earnest to prepare adequately, so the event shall not elude you. It shall not elude you in particular in Jesus name.
For this to be so, you must align yourself to the demand and compulsory expectations of the Lord from His saints of all ages, which includes you. See His unchanging mandate from all saints.

Ephesians 5:3-5. But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.

No doubt you have heard the appellation of some people in religious circles, ascribing saintliness to some of their late religious leaders.
Such things have no biblical bearing.  Saintliness is a lifestyle you attain by your determined resolve to walk according to God’s laws and statues.
It takes only God with His knowledge of all things and unbiased stance, to ascertain who is qualified to be called a saint. See instances established in the scriptures.

Genesis 7:1. And the Lord said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.

Job 1:8. And the Lord said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?

Ezekiel 14:14. Though these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they should deliver but their own souls by their righteousness, saith the Lord God.

Beloved, God’s compulsory expectations  from all saints of all ages which includes you is still the same.  Remember, God does not change and He is no respecter of anyone.

Malachi 3:6. For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

Acts 10:34-35. Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.

Romans 2:11. For there is no respect of persons with God.

See His expectations that made Old Testament people, saintly  before Him.
1. They were not living a lifestyle of wickedness

1 Samuel 2:9. He will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail.

2. They love God and kept  His commandments.

Psalms 31:23. O love the Lord, all ye his saints: for the Lord preserveth the faithful, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer.

3. They feared God and departed from evil.

Psalms 34:9. O fear the Lord, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him.

4. They had covenant of consecrating their entirety to God.

Psalms 50:5. Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.

5. They hated evil with passion.

Psalms 97:10. Ye that love the Lord, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.

6. They walked with Him in biblical holiness.

Isaiah 35:8-9. 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. No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there:

7. They willingly departed from every revealed evils  from the scriptures.

Isaiah 52:11. Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence, touch no unclean thing; go ye out of the midst of her; be ye clean, that bear the vessels of the Lord.

8. They abhorred pride , the undoing of satan and his fallen demons.

Isaiah 57:15. For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.

9. They trembled  at God’s words and obeyed it implicitly.

Isaiah 66:2. For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the Lord: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.

10. They desired  to live with God in heaven above anything else.

Hebrews 11:14-16. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.

Beloved, you also can join these cloud  of witnesses, following their exemplary lifestyle. May the good Lord find you faithful.
Dearly beloved,  Jesus our Lord was reputed for doing exactly what He taught.

Acts 1:1. The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach,

During His earthly ministry, He lived a lifestyle of biblical saintliness. He challenged His adversaries, if they could convict Him of sin, but there was one.

John 8:46. Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?

Not only with mortal men He did, this, but even with satan. He challenged Him, if he could convict Him of sin. But He had nothing against our Lord.

John 14:30. Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.

The scriptures revealed severally that He was sinless during His earthly ministry. See them.

Hebrews 4:15. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

Hebrews 7:26. For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;

1 Peter 2:22. Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:

1 John 3:5. And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.

Dearly beloved, Jesus taught believers in Bible days and by extension believers of all ages, which includes you, to live a Christian lifestyle free  from all sins. See it yourself

John 5:14. Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.

John 8:11. She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

John 8:32. And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

John 8:36. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

This same exhortation was further reaffirmed through several scriptures, by the blessed Holy Spirit that sin must never be mentioned once,  in the life of anyone who profess to be saints. See it yourself.

Ephesians 5:3-5. But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God

Always remember all believers and you in particular,  are called to be saints. It does not matter the name of your denomination or wherever you find yourself. Whether you are in Rome, Corinth or Thessalonians. You are called to saintliness and holiness. See  for yourself.

Romans 1:7. To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 1:2. Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:

1 Thessalonians 4:7. For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.. For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.

In the same token the scriptures reveals saintliness connotes godly lifestyle free from every form of sins. See it.

2 Timothy 2:19. Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.

2 Timothy 2:22. Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

Titus 2:11-14. For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

1 John 3:8-9. He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

Dearly beloved, if you desire to live with the Lord in eternity or partake in the dawning rapture, then saintliness and godly  lifestyle  is compulsory. The good Lord shall help you in Jesus name.
Friend,  the Bible reveals the serenity of heaven. It is a holy place and only holy saints shall have access to the place.

Revelation 21:27. And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

It then means that only saintly believers  shall be part of the rapture.

Revelation 14:4-5. These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.

Friend, if you sincerely desire to be part of this imminent event, you must determinedly avoid sinful habits and lifestyle.  A single sin is sufficient to disqualify anyone.

Ephesians 5:3-5. But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.

Revelation 21:8. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

So commit yourself henceforth to a lifestyle  of consistent saintliness, as contained in the scriptures,  to enable you to be ready anytime the clarion call is made. The Lord shall help you in Jesus name.

2 Corinthians 7:1. Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

Ephesians 4:20-32. But ye have not so learned Christ; If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another. Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: Neither give place to the devil. Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth. Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.
