1 Thessalonians 2:10  Ye are witnesses, and God also, how holily and justly and unblameably we behaved ourselves among you that believe:

Beloved,  God your Father has a unique nature.  It is blameless holiness.

Exodus 15:11  Who is like unto thee, O Lord, among the gods?  Who is like thee, glorious in holiness,fearful in praises, doing wonders?

Psalms 145:17  The Lord is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works.

His name and habitation are holy.

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.

It was this holiness that Adam lost when he sinned against God in the beginning. 

Eph 4:24  And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

The saints of God either in the old or  new testaments are called to be holy.

1Pe 1:141Pe 1:16  As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

Beloved God accept only holy worship.

1Ch 16:29  Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name:bring an offering, and come before him: worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.

It takes biblical holiness to access holy heaven.

Psa 15:1Psa 15:5  Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill? He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart. He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.  In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the Lord. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not. He that putteth not out his money to usury,nor taketh reward against the innocent.He that doeth these things shall never be moved.

Psa 24:3Psa 24:4  Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in his holy place?  He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.

The singular way to heaven is called the way of holiness.

Isa 35:8Isa 35:9 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:

Unfortunately,  the same way Adam lost the nature of holiness,  Israel  also as a nation,  lost holiness and were  damned.

Jer 2:3  Israel was holiness unto the Lord, and the firstfruits of his increase: all that devour him shall offend; evil shall come upon them, saith the Lord.

Beloved, like Paul apostle, you must sustain your holiness lifestyle,  to enable you see God at the end of time.

1 Thessalonians 2:10  Ye are witnesses, and God also, how holily and justly and unblameably we behaved ourselves among you that believe:

Deary  beloved, when angel Gabriel came to announce the coming of our Lord ,  to the earth.  He referred to Him ,  as holy.

Luk 1:35  And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

When the apostles were praying,  they referred  to Jesus as holy.

Act 4:27  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,

Act 4:30  By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus.

When the blessed Holy spirit spoke about Jesus,  He said He was holy.

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

When Jesus was here  during  His earthly ministry,  He lived a sanctified lifestyle.

John 17:19  And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.

He taught His disciplines purity for them to see God at the end of time.

Matthew 5:8  Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

The blessed Holy Spirit,  being one of the  triune God,  revealed the all important requisite of believers living a lifestyle of holiness  before they could have access to God here and hereafter.  No doubt your earnest desire  is to live with God at eternity.  Then you must be determinedly live a lifestyle of biblical holiness like apostle Paul  see it

1 Thessalonians 2:10  Ye are witnesses, and God also, how holily and justly and unblameably we behaved ourselves among you that believe:

The Bible affirmed this important truth  to be so. See some of them. 

Luk 1:75  In holiness and righteousness before him,all the days of our life.

Rom 6:19  I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.

Rom 6:22  But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.

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.

1Th 3:121Th 3:13 And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all men, even as we do toward you: To the end he may stablish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints.

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

Always remember this most important exhortation.  Except you are biblical holy on this side of heaven.  Seeing God at the end of time, shall be a delusion and unattainable dream.  So be Biblical holy.  Receive grace to do so in Jesus name..

Hebrews 12:14  Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:

Friend, of a true rapture is dawning.  After this glorious event we shall be with Jesus  for ever in heaven.  It shall not elude you in particular in Jesus name.

1Th 4:151Th 4:17  For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

But then  it is very important for you to know that heaven  is a holy place.

Deu 26:15  Look down from thy holy habitation, from heaven, and bless thy people Israel, and the land which thou hast given us, as thou swarest unto our fathers, a land that floweth with milk and honey.

Psa 24:3Psa 24:4  Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord?or who shall stand in his holy place?  He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.

Also  that God is holy.

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.

Remember Jesus is holy.

Act 4:30  By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus

In addition  the Holy Spirit is the spirit of holiness. . He is holy too.

Romans 1:4  And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:

1Jo 5:7  For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

The angels in  heaven are Holy angels 

Mat 25:31  When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:

The saints in heaven are holy brethren.

Hebrews 3:1  Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus;

Rev 14:4Rev 14:5  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.

Nothing unclean shall have  access to heaven or  partake in the rapture.

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.

Friend,  for you in particular  to meet  the Lord in the air.  You must be living a lifestyle of biblical holiness till you see Jesus,  like apostle  Paul.

1 Thessalonians 2:10  Ye are witnesses, and God also, how holily and justly and unblameably we behaved ourselves among you that believe:

For  you in particular not to be here to witness the cruel time of great tribunalation,  holiness as a  lifestyle is not optional bur compulsory.

2Pe 3:112Pe 3:14  Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.

Friend,  one way to validate your seeing God at the end of time is biblical holiness.  Don’t ever forget.

Isa 33:15Isa 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.

Hebrews 12:14  Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:

Receive grace now to begin to live holily like Paul till Jesus cones.
