And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them, Ye shall be holy: for I the Lord your God am holy. – Leviticus 19:1-2

Beloved, one thing that bring so much joy to God your loving Father in heaven is that you know Him.
 Please don’t forget and make determined efforts to know Him.

Jeremiah 9:24  But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the Lord which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the Lord.

And the Lord spake unto Moses, Speak unto the congregation of the children of Israel, Ye shall be holy: for I the Lord your God am holy. – Leviticus 19:1-2 
 Knowing God brings you immense benefits for this life and the one to come. 
 
No marvel the holy scriptures affirms that, the people that do know God shall be strong and do exploits.

Daniel 11:32  And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.

It was them not surprising that the two most  important  giants in the Bible, one in the old and the other in the new, despite great things that God had used them to do, their singular pursuits and passions, were  to know Him, more.
See both of them, Moses the  servant of the Lord  and Paul apostle.

Exodus 33:13  Now therefore, I pray thee, if I have found grace in thy sight, shew me now thy way, that I may know thee, that I may find grace in thy sight: and consider that this nation is thy people.

Philippians 3:10  That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;

And the Lord spake unto Moses, Speak unto the congregation of the children of Israel, Ye shall be holy: for I the Lord your God am holy. – Leviticus 19:1-2

 

But then knowing God is the heritage of all His children, however, you must have personal passion to know Him.

 See what the Bible says about knowing God.

Hosea 6:3  Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the Lord: his going forth is prepared as the morning;  and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.

Beloved, there is one thing you discover prominent in the lifestyle of saints that know  God.
They give utmost importance and attention to His words. Knowing fully that , when all the things on the earth have been burnt by fire, the word of God remains forever and ever.

Psalms 119:89  For ever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven.

Matthew 24:35  Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

They also realised with deep convictions that doing these words is what guarantees their eternal well-being.
You also must have this singular persuasion for your earthly and eternal wellness. It shall be well with you in particular in Jesus name.

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.

And the Lord spake unto Moses, Speak unto the congregation of the children of Israel, Ye shall be holy: for I the Lord your God am holy. – Leviticus 19:1-2

 

It is for this reason that should make you to give same regards to the entirety of the scriptures. See these ones.

1.  You are to be saved with the entire members of the households.

Acts 16:31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

2. You are to make determined and conscientious efforts to teach and train your children in the way of the Lord.
 Nothing must hinder you from doing this.

Deu 6:4 — Deu 6:7  Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.

Proverbs 22:6  Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Isaiah 54:13  And all thy children shall be taught of the Lord; and great shall be the peace of thy children.

And the Lord spake unto Moses, Speak unto the congregation of the children of Israel, Ye shall be holy: for I the Lord your God am holy. – Leviticus 19:1-2

 

The reason for this is because at the event of the dawning rapture or sudden glory, meaning death. If those  Children don’t know God they shall be damned.

You and your children shall not  be damned in Jesus name.
1.
But then, look at this, at the white throne judgement, where sinners shall be sent to the lake of fire, little children are not excused.

Revelation 20:11-15. And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

2.
 When God destroyed the world with flood in the days of Noah. Little children were not excused.
Those children that were involved were destroyed and also went to hell fire .

Genesis 7:15-23  And they went in unto Noah into the ark, two and two of all flesh, wher£ein is the breath of life. And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the Lord shut him in. And the flood was forty days upon the earth; and the waters increased, and bare up the ark, and it was lift up above the earth. And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the earth; and the ark went upon the face of the waters. And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered. Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered. And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man: All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died. And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark.

3.
  The same thing happened when God rained  fire and brimstone on Sodom and Gommorah.. The young people were not exempted. See if.

Genesis 19:24-25  Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven; And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.

Genesis 19:4  But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter:

And the Lord spake unto Moses, Speak unto the congregation of the children of Israel, Ye shall be holy: for I the Lord your God am holy. – Leviticus 19:1-2

 

Beloved, when you get to heaven, you shall discover that children whose parents trained them in the way of the Lord are there, not as adults but as children. See these.

Revelation 19:5: And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great.

Revelation 11:18: And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth

It because of this, that you should rise up henceforth and heed this  very important  commandment of your loving Father in heaven, below see it.

Leviticus 19:1-2  And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them, Ye shall be holy: for I the Lord your God am holy.

And the Lord spake unto Moses, Speak unto the congregation of the children of Israel, Ye shall be holy: for I the Lord your God am holy. – Leviticus 19:1-2

 

God commanded Moses to drum it in the hearing of the children of Israel that, He demanded holiness of life from all the entire congregation. And the children were not excluded.

Beloved, there is something you noticed all over the world, that is an acceptable norn but is damnable.
1. Parents and perhaps you allow your children to live licentious lifestyle, thinking they are young.
2.  When  their grand parents are getting old,  they encouraged them to take whisky and some sinful things, saying those sinful things would make them warm and live longer.
What an irony and abomination. They are ignorant and are unlike God

 

This is because when Abraham was ninety nine years, God called him to more biblical holiness lifestyle. See it.

Genesis 17:1  And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the Lord appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.

And the Lord spake unto Moses, Speak unto the congregation of the children of Israel, Ye shall be holy: for I the Lord your God am holy. – Leviticus 19:1-2

 

Beloved, I am persuaded of you that you are not living this  damnable attitude. But just in case you are, repent immediately

The Bible is repleted with innumerable exhortations  of God, calling everyone, young and old to a lifestyle of biblical holiness.
This is because without holiness, no one, young or old shall see the Lord.

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

Luk 1:74 — Luk 1:75  That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear,  In holiness and righteousness before him,  all the days of our life.

1Th 4:7 — 1Th 4:8  For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness. He therefore that despiseth, despiseth not man, but God, who hath also given unto us his holy Spirit.

And the Lord spake unto Moses, Speak unto the congregation of the children of Israel, Ye shall be holy: for I the Lord your God am holy. – Leviticus 19:1-2

 

Beloved, because of the importance of biblical holiness in determining your joy and happiness here and hereafter, the Bible is repleted with innumerable numbers of the commandments. Let see some of them.

Leviticus 11:44-45  For I am the LORD your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy: neither shall ye defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. For I am the LORD that bringeth you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy.

Leviticus 20:7: ¶Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the LORD your God.

Leviticus 20:26: 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.

Leviticus 21:8: Thou shalt sanctify him therefore; for he offereth the bread of thy God: he shall be holy unto thee: for I the LORD, which sanctify you, amholy.

Exodus 19:6: 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.

1 Peter 1:15-16: 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.

And the Lord spake unto Moses, Speak unto the congregation of the children of Israel, Ye shall be holy: for I the Lord your God am holy. – Leviticus 19:1-2

 

Why  is  biblical holiness a must for the young and old?

It is because anyone who desire to have relationship with God, must be in agreement with Him.
  Since you want Him to be your Father and also for the entire members of your household, them biblical holiness is a must for all of you.

Amos 3:3: Can two walk together, except they be agreed?

In the same way God called Abraham at the age of ninety nine to be perfect,  Jesus your Lord says, you and your household, no exception, should be perfect.

Matthew 5:48: Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

And the Lord spake unto Moses, Speak unto the congregation of the children of Israel, Ye shall be holy: for I the Lord your God am holy. – Leviticus 19:1-2

 

Beloved take note of this. It is extremely important.

  See these two promises exclusively for you and your family.
1. Partaking in the dawning rapture

Jn 14:1 — Jn 14:3  Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

2. Partaking in the marriage supper of the Lamb.

Rev 19:6 — Rev 19:9  And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.  And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

And the Lord spake unto Moses, Speak unto the congregation of the children of Israel, Ye shall be holy: for I the Lord your God am holy. – Leviticus 19:1-2

 

No doubt you desire for you and your family to be part of these two event’s.

I joined my faith with yours and earnestly pray for you and your family that  all of you shall be part of the two events in Jesus name.
Because these shall be so, holiness as a lifestyle becomes a compulsion for you and your family, from now till Christ comes for you all.
Teach them to be cleansed. Teach them to be holy as God had commanded.

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.

Leviticus 19:1-2  And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them, Ye shall be holy: for I the Lord your God am holy.

And the Lord spake unto Moses, Speak unto the congregation of the children of Israel, Ye shall be holy: for I the Lord your God am holy. – Leviticus 19:1-2
