Precious saints, I have included a lot of scriptures in this article. Please don’t skip over them as they are vital in understanding fully what season we are entering; take your time . As is usual for me at this time of year, I do some stock-taking; looking back at what the Spirit was saying and how the year has unfolded. When looking back at what the Lord showed me at the beginning of the year 5778, I discovered some passages which were directly connected to events that have occurred recently. He truly declared the end of the year from the beginning! Here is a quote from that article written at the start of 5778:
‘What else does the number 5778 speak of? Thanks to science, we know that the temperature of the surface of the sun is 5778 degrees. In this year 5778, the Sun of Righteousness is rising with healing in his wings for those who fear His name, during the day that burns like an oven.’
Recent fires in Greece, other nations in Europe, Alaska and those still raging in California all announce the day that burns like an oven is here. Ridiculously high temperatures have also been recorded all over the earth. 2018’s global heat wave is so pervasive, it’s surprising scientists!
Rev. 16:9 And Men Were Scorched With Great Heat, And Blasphemed The Name Of God, Which Had Power Over These Plagues.
A Flood of Filth
Another quote from the article on 5778:
‘Another Hebrew word that has a gematria of 78 is ‘mabbul’, which is the word for “flood” used in Genesis 6:17. There were 8 saved through that flood. Remember also the dragon releases a flood to destroy the woman. It comes out of his mouth, depicting a release of fiery words intended to destroy, words of death and destruction.’
Have we not seen this flood of vitriolic hatred poured out against president Trump and anyone who supports him or any issue of Biblical truth in the nation of America or the rest of the world. We must recognize its source as the flood that comes from the dragon’s mouth. With all his flaws, this president was placed in power by God and as the Lord showed me when he was elected, his time of office has provided a space for the virgins to make sure their lamps are filled and they have extra oil. The Lord also showed me that Trump will function as a touchstone – anyone rubbing up against him will have their true nature and heart revealed. Even though a touchstone may be black in color, it reveals which vessels are real gold. I have witnessed this even in conversations heard locally. I have never seen such a man with the ability to elicit either life and goodness or complete hatred! And during his tenure, the army with a heart of rebellion toward instituted authority and government is clearly forming its ranks, coached by the controlled mainstream media. Anyone speaking out or presenting an alternative narrative is persecuted and, as we have recently seen in the case against certain conservative alternative news stations – their platform of free speech via Facebook, Twitter and soon the whole internet is being removed. Jesus said, “If they hated Me, they will hate you…” Not only is there increased persecution against anyone who dares to stand up for what is good and right (according to the unabridged Word of God), there is increased pressure for laws to be changed to allow a total flood of moral filth to be deemed legal in the nation of America. The year 5778 is culminating in the impending release of the full flood of evil and demonic perversion through music, media and the internet. Did not Paul warn us of this?
2Ti 3:1 but understand this, that in the last days will come (set in) perilous times of great stress and trouble [hard to deal with and hard to bear]. 2Ti 3:2 For people will be lovers of self and [utterly] self-centered, lovers of money and aroused by an inordinate [greedy] desire for wealth, proud and arrogant and contemptuous boasters. They will be abusive (blasphemous, scoffing), disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy and profane. 2Ti 3:3 [They will be] without natural [human] affection (callous and inhuman), relentless (admitting of no truce or appeasement); [they will be] slanderers (false accusers, troublemakers), intemperate and loose in morals and conduct, uncontrolled and fierce, haters of good.
Death in the Seas
It has now been announced by scientists that the Fukushima nuclear disaster has poisoned a third of the world’s oceans. Where else do we read that number? Revelation chapter 8:
Rev 8:9 And a third of the sea was turned to blood, a third of the living creatures in the sea perished, and a third of the ships were destroyed.
We are in the days of the blowing of the seven trumpets. By the time the 5th trumpet is blowing, the sealing of the servants of God upon their foreheads is complete. The forehead is identified with the mind. What do you meditate on? What are your thoughts filled with? Are you renewing your mind through the washing of the Word? We entered the month of Elul on the evening of the Saturday 11th August. Elul is traditionally a time of introspection and stocktaking — a time to review one’s deeds and spiritual progress over the past year. Elul is the month of examining the heart and of realigning any area in which one is not in submission to His Word. Specific Elul customs include the daily sounding of the shofar (ram’s horn) as a call to repentance. It is the month where final adjustments are made before the feast of Trumpets, when the books of our lives are opened and examined. This event is described in Daniel 7:
Dan 7:9 I was looking until the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of Days sat, whose robe was white as snow and the hair of His head like pure wool. His throne was like flames of fire, its wheels like burning fire. Dan 7:10 A stream of fire went out and came out from before Him. A thousand thousands served Him, and a myriad myriads stood before Him. The judgment was set and the books were opened.
If you wish to be protected from the torment of the locusts released from the bottomless pit in the days ahead, make sure you have the seal of God upon your forehead:
Rev 9:4 And it was said to them that they should not harm the grass of the earth, nor every green thing, nor every tree, except only the men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads.
The high priest, Aaron, wore a plate of pure gold engraved with the word ‘Holy to the Lord’ upon his forehead. Dedicate your mind as holy to the Lord. Make sure the meditations of your heart are acceptable to Him. Cast away bitterness and unforgiveness and all thoughts which have their source in darkness. Submit yourself again in this month of Elul as a holy vessel, a bride set apart for her Bridegroom.
Zep 2:1 COLLECT YOUR thoughts, yes, unbend yourselves [in submission and see if there is no sense of shame and no consciousness of sin left in you], O shameless nation [not desirous or desired]! Zep 2:2 [The time for repentance is speeding by like chaff whirled before the wind!] Therefore consider, before God’s decree brings forth [the curse upon you], before the time [to repent] is gone like the drifting chaff, before the fierce anger of the Lord comes upon you–yes, before the day of the wrath of the Lord comes upon you! Zep 2:3 Seek the Lord [inquire for Him, inquire of Him, and require Him as the foremost necessity of your life], all you humble of the land who have acted in compliance with His revealed will and have kept His commandments; seek righteousness, seek humility [inquire for them, require them as vital]. It may be you will be hidden in the day of the Lord’s anger.
5778, a Year of Transition and Separation
Another quote from the article written at the beginning of this year 5778:
‘It is the year of separation and of sealing; the year of identifying which army we are truly a part of, the sons of Zion or the sons of Greece; the year of revealing what name is upon our foreheads.’
The Greeks emphasized the mind and the intellect of man, whereas the Hebrews emphasized man as a spiritual being, meant for relationship with the One True God. Judgment is appointed those who live wickedly and march for the dragon. August 11th was the first day of the harvesting of grapes in Israel. As the grape harvest begins, so the meaning of it has also been set in motion. Revelation 14 speaks of the wicked being gathered as a harvest of grapes. Elul is the month of grape harvest, after which the treading of the grapes takes place. The five species used during the festival of Tabernacles are grapes, figs, pomegranates, “honey”/dates, olives and they are harvested from Elul 1 (Aug./Sept.) through Sukkot/Tabernacles to the end of Cheshvan (Nov/Dec). Wheat is also harvested around Tabernacles and gathered into the barn. There is much spiritual truth wrapped up in the timing of these harvests, but that is for another article. Rosh Hashanah is also called Yom Hadin – the Day of Judgment and it is a picture of when our Bridegroom comes, the wicked are gathered for burning, and afterwards the righteous are gathered, like wheat, into His barns for preserving. The righteous and the wicked are forever separated on Yom ha Din!
Year 5779, crossing over into a new season
We are moving rapidly towards the year 5779 – we are moving from 8 to 9. Tet is the 9th letter of Hebrew alphabet, it portrays either hidden good or hidden evil and represents either the good man submitted to God or the evil rebellious man, who raises His fist toward God and is part of the army of the evil one. The pictograph is a snake coiled in a basket.
Once again, in the letter Tet, we hear the message of two camps, two armies; the rebellious who march for the first rebel who was cast out of heaven, and the holy set-apart army of the Bridegroom.
Gematria of 79 is for the following words: Testimony, Witness, Knowledge, Congregation, Boaz (Left Pillar), Clay, Garment, The Garden of the LORD, Delilah, Expire, Die, Perish
Let’s look into a few of these in more depth. Those who are found bearing the seal of God’s approval upon their foreheads will be a testimony and a witness to the unbeliever in the coming year 5779. The presence of God will be markedly upon their lives. They will eat the fruit of the Aaronic blessing and God’s face will shine upon them as He blesses and keeps them and grants them His peace.
The presence of the Lord will abide in the congregation of those who fear Him; those who have submitted to the ministrations of the spirit of burning in the previous season:
Isa 4:3 And he who is left in Zion and remains in Jerusalem will be called holy, everyone who is recorded for life in Jerusalem and for eternal life, Isa 4:4 After the Lord has washed away the [moral] filth of the daughters of Zion [pride, vanity, haughtiness] and has purged the bloodstains of Jerusalem from the midst of it by the spirit and blast of judgment and by the spirit and blast of burning and sifting. Isa 4:5 And the Lord will create over the whole site, over every dwelling place of Mount Zion and over her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day and the shining of a flaming fire by night; for over all the glory shall be a canopy (a defense of divine love and protection). Isa 4:6 And there shall be a pavilion for shade in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of refuge and a shelter from storm and from rain.
They will be brought into a marriage relationship with the Kinsman-Redeemer, demonstrated by Boaz marrying Ruth, after speaking for her in the gate. Because of this, the name of the dead will be restored to their inheritance. That which has been previously locked up and inaccessible because of the operation of spirit of death, will now be released in full for the emerging manchild to enjoy as part of his double portion.
The word for ‘garment’ (gematria 79) in Hebrew is also the word for ‘wife’. We, the Bride of the Lamb are also His garment; the one described in Revelation which has been dipped in Blood.
Rev 19:11 And I saw Heaven being opened. And, behold! A white horse, and He sitting on it having been called Faithful and True. And He judges and wars in righteousness. Rev 19:12 And His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on His head many diadems, having a name that had been written, which no one knows except Himself; Rev 19:13 and having been clothed in a garment which had been dipped in blood. And His name is called The Word of God.
Within this ‘garment’ is the Living Word of God, Faithful and True, and through us, He rides to wage war in righteousness!! Did you hear that, saints? We ride to war in the coming season, with the One Whose eyes are a flame of fire within us.
This wife of the Lamb is also the garden of the Lord with the fountain of Life bubbling within her. She calls for the wind of the Spirit to blow upon her so that her fragrance may flow out for the Bridegroom’s delight. Elul is a time of ensuring the fragrance of our hearts is pleasing to the Lord::
Son 4:16 [You have called me a garden, she said] Oh, I pray that the [cold] north wind and the [soft] south wind may blow upon my garden, that its spices may flow out [in abundance for you in whom my soul delights]. Let my beloved come into his garden and eat its choicest fruits.
In the following verse, the Bridegroom has come into the garden and tasted of, or tested, its fruits. It speaks of a time of evaluating the fruit and content of our hearts and following this, an invitation to drink abundantly is issued for the Beloved. Rosh Hashanah marks the time when the books of our lives are opened and examined for content and quality. It always falls during the fruit harvest in Israel:
Son 5:1 I have come into My garden, My sister, My spouse; I have gathered My myrrh with My spice; I have eaten My honeycomb with My honey; I have drunk My wine with My milk. Eat, O friends; drink, yea, drink abundantly, O Beloved.
Isa 51:3 For the Lord will comfort Zion; He will comfort all her waste places. And He will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the Lord. Joy and gladness will be found in her, thanksgiving and the voice of song or instrument of praise.
In the year 5779, we are going to see the fragrance of the true garden of the Lord and the operation of the counterfeit, Delilah (gematria 79) but it will be clear who bears the fragrance of Christ and who wears the cheap knock-off perfume and whose allegiance can be bought. You will know them by their fruit (also evidenced by the number 9).
79 is also the gematria for ‘expire, die, perish’. We are going to witness an increase in deaths amongst those who have come to the end of their time of grace for repentance, especially amongst God’s people; those who claim to know the truth and follow His teachings, yet continue in sin. There will also be many martyrs amongst the saints in the days ahead.
Eze 18:30 Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, says the Lord God. Repent and turn from all your transgressions, lest iniquity be your ruin and so shall they not be a stumbling block to you. Eze 18:31 Cast away from you all your transgressions by which you have transgressed against Me, and make you a new mind and heart and a new spirit. For why will you die, O house of Israel? Eze 18:32 For I have no pleasure in the death of him who dies, says the Lord God. Therefore turn (be converted) and live!
The year 5779 will also be a year of war for Israel, prophesied by the sign in the sky recently of the full lunar eclipse in close proximity to the planet Mars. Large riots on the border with Gaza in recent days indicate a concerted effort by Iran to draw Israel into a war in Gaza. A Russian presence on Israel’s northern border with Syria is also an indication of an escalation in this area. Of course, we know that the Word speaks of a day when Israel is surrounded by hostile armies and we are moving towards that appointment.
The 5779th verse of the Bible is the one in bold below:
Deu 32:18 Of the Rock Who bore you you were unmindful; you forgot the God Who travailed in your birth. Deu 32:19 And the Lord saw it and He spurned and rejected them, out of indignation with His sons and His daughters. Deu 32:20 And He said, I will hide My face from them, I will see what their end will be; for they are a perverse generation, children in whom is no faithfulness.
The Hebrew word translated ‘hide’ here means ‘to be absent’. That means the presence of God is going to be conspicuous by its absence in the lives of those who have been unfaithful.
Jer 18:15 Yet My people have forgotten Me; they burn incense to false gods, they have been caused to stumble in their ways and in the ancient roads, to walk in bypaths, in a way not graded and built up [not on a highway], Jer 18:16 Making their land a desolation and a horror, a thing to be hissed at perpetually; everyone who passes by shall be astounded and horrified and shake his head. Jer 18:17 I will scatter them as with an east wind before the enemy; I will show them My back and not My face in the day of their calamity [says the Lord].
What a horrific thing to have the Lord turn His back on you. Use the 30 days of Elul to set your life right with your Father. Return to Him. The King is in the field during Elul and longing to meet with you. Overflowing forgiveness and mercy is available for those who will sincerely seek Him.
The Strongs number H5779 is the word which means: to consult: – take advice, to take counsel together. It occurs only twice in the Bible. Whose counsel do you listen to? The counsel of man, who leans upon his own understanding or the counsel of the Source of all wisdom, Jesus Christ?
Isa 8:9 Make an uproar and be broken in pieces, O you peoples [rage, raise the war cry, do your worst, and be utterly dismayed]! Give ear, all you [our enemies] of far countries. Gird yourselves [for war], and be thrown into consternation! Gird yourselves, and be [utterly] dismayed! Isa 8:10 Take counsel together, but it shall come to nought; speak the word, but it will not stand, for God is with us [Immanuel]!
Does this not bring to mind psalm 2 where the kings of the earth gather together against the Almighty and laughs! We are living in the days when the kings of the earth are taking counsel against God. Let’s read the verse about taking counsel in context and see what God adds after this:
Isa 8:11 For the Lord spoke thus to me with His strong hand [upon me], and warned and instructed me not to walk in the way of this people, saying, Isa 8:12 Do not call conspiracy all that this people will call conspiracy; neither be in fear of what they fear, nor [make others afraid and] in dread. Isa 8:13 The Lord of hosts–regard Him as holy and honor His holy name [by regarding Him as your only hope of safety], and let Him be your fear and let Him be your dread [lest you offend Him by your fear of man and distrust of Him]. Isa 8:14 And He shall be a sanctuary [a sacred and indestructible asylum to those who reverently fear and trust in Him]; but He shall be a Stone of stumbling and a Rock of offense to both the houses of Israel, a trap and a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem. Isa 8:15 And many among them shall stumble thereon; and they shall fall and be broken, and be snared and taken. Isa 8:16 Bind up the testimony, seal the law and the teaching among my [Isaiah’s] disciples. Isa 8:17 And I will wait for the Lord, Who is hiding His face from the house of Jacob; and I will look for and hope in Him. .. Isa 8:19 And when the people [instead of putting their trust in God] shall say to you, Consult for direction mediums and wizards who chirp and mutter, should not a people seek and consult their God? Should they consult the dead on behalf of the living? Isa 8:20 [Direct such people] to the teaching and to the testimony! If their teachings are not in accord with this word, it is surely because there is no dawn and no morning for them. Isa 8:21 And they [who consult mediums and wizards] shall pass through [the land] sorely distressed and hungry; and when they are hungry, they will fret, and will curse by their king and their God; and whether they look upward Isa 8:22 Or look to the earth, they will behold only distress and darkness, the gloom of anguish, and into thick darkness and widespread, obscure night they shall be driven away.
So once again, we find the concept of separation and of God turning His face away from those whose teachings or lives are not in accordance with His Word; from those who operate in witchcraft and consult mediums. Of course, no modern-day Christian would acknowledge consulting mediums, so let’s just clarify the application of this verse today. A medium consults with spirits other than the Holy Spirit in order to convey knowledge and revelation from the hidden spiritual realm to the enquirer. So any gathering where there are spirits other than the Holy Spirit at work fall into this category; the counterfeit prophetic, those operating in divination, the prophets of Baal who eat at Jezebel’s table.
Up to this juncture, it has not always been fully clear which pastors are teaching in accordance with the Word. Yes, there have been the outrageous obvious deceptions, but the best counterfeits are so close to the original that it is very difficult to spot that they are not the genuine article. But in the season that lies ahead, it will become clear because those who are teaching the counterfeit will be surrounded by gloom and darkness and distress and hunger, whereas those who genuinely walk in the fear of the Lord and are lovers of Truth will be safe in the secret place of the Most High. He will be a sanctuary to them; a place of safety while all hell is breaking loose.
Mal 3:16 Then those who feared the Lord talked often one to another; and the Lord listened and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him of those who reverenced and worshipfully feared the Lord and who thought on His name. Mal 3:17 And they shall be Mine, says the Lord of hosts, in that day when I publicly recognize and openly declare them to be My jewels (My special possession, My peculiar treasure). And I will spare them, as a man spares his own son who serves him. Mal 3:18 Then shall you return and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him who serves God and him who does not serve Him.
Did you catch that? You will be able to look and discern clearly between the righteous and the wicked. You will know them by their fruit, including the fruit of their lips. And judgment by fire is coming to the wicked and the lawless:
Mal 4:1 FOR BEHOLD, the day comes that shall burn like an oven, and all the proud and arrogant, yes, and all that do wickedly and are lawless, shall be stubble; the day that comes shall burn them up, says the Lord of hosts, so that it will leave them neither root nor branch. Mal 4:2 But unto you who revere and worshipfully fear My name shall the Sun of Righteousness arise with healing in His wings and His beams, and you shall go forth and gambol like calves [released] from the stall and leap for joy.
So the year 5778 marks the year of transition and separation; movement away from mixture toward holiness for those who truly desire to know Him more deeply. On the other hand, those who worship the creature rather than the Creator have moved toward greater rebellion, self-indulgenceand works of the flesh, and deep open hatred of what is good. By 5779, the separation and sifting is complete and the two camps are becoming increasing evident, not only on a national level, but also in the family. There are those who desire to dwell before His face at Pniel and those from whom He hides His face. There are those who are to be brought near and those from whom He turns away.
If I want to find a depiction of the point where 5778 meets 5779, I see it depicted in the point where Michal moves toward David and reaches Bahurim, meaning ‘the choice young men’, and Abner (father of lights) commands Paltiel, the man Saul married her to, to desist in following her:
2Sa 3:16 But her husband went with her, weeping behind her all the way to Bahurim. Then Abner said to him, Go back. And he did so.
Saul had taken his daughter who was betrothed to David and forced her to marry another man, in order to prevent her fulfilling God’s purpose in her life. Just as you perhaps have spent a long season being joined to that which has stopped the unfolding of your destiny. All that the house of Saul has tried to do to abort your destiny comes to a halt and is cut off at the point where you reach Bahurim. The Father of Lights has seen your determined journey towards the house of David and the increasing separation between you and all that has been mixture in your life – in spite of the incessant wailing that has followed you. Now as we cross into 5779, the Father of Lights decrees enough of the enemy’s schemes to delay and distract you! He commands all that is of the house of Saul and its manipulative schemes to delay you must go back, and you move forward, separated and holy for your Bridegroom. The noise of demonic attack and harassment is silenced at Bahurim. You have been marked as one of the ‘choice young men’.
‘There will be Signs in the Heavens…’
Another sign in the sky indicating the period we are entering into is the Perseids meteor shower which coincides with the new moon of Elul this year. It began in the morning watch of 1st Elul and lasts until the morning watch of the 2nd Elul. Apparently 60 to 70 shooting stars will be visible per hour! The name ‘Perseids meteor shower’ comes from the fact meteors appear to shoot out from the Perseus constellation – the 24th largest constellation in the sky. In Hebrew, this constellation is ‘Peretz’ or ‘Parats’ which is in Latin ‘Perseus’. The Hebrew means “Breaker” or “Deliverer” or “the One who Breaks Open the Way” as in Micah 2:12, 13.
The Breaker goes ahead of the Bridal company and opens the way for her to be totally separated unto Him. Not only are they going out, but HE is leading them into separation. Here is another excerpt from my article on the year 5778, which mentions the Breaker:
‘those who are set apart unto the Lord are being called out of the mixed multitude and into the safety of being walled or fenced in as a flock by the Lord, as they become completely set apart or separate in these days. The following scripture comes to mind:
Mic 2:12 …I will surely collect the remnant of Israel. I will bring them together like sheep in a fold, like a flock in the midst of their pasture. They shall swarm with men and hum with much noise. Mic 2:13 The Breaker will go up before them. They will break through, pass through the gate and go out through it, and their King will pass on before them, the Lord at their head.
Notice that passing through the gate is mentioned, and a going out rather that a coming in at that gate. I spoke of the journey which the Bride (depicted by Michal) must make out of Jerusalem and away from the unclean House of Saul and her natural family associations, towards the House of David (and her bridegroom), earlier but go into more detail in Chapter 11 of my book ‘Give Me Back My Wife’’.’
The Perseids meteor shower as the month of Elul begins is announcing the riding of the Breaker. What a fitting end for a year which spoke of being led out of the gate of the place of mixture into a place of safety as His flock.
Separation and Identification
Confirmation of this separation for the holy ones and alienation from God on the part of the wicked camp is found in the change of number for the new year 5779, which clocks over on September 9th this year. Tet is the 9th letter of Hebrew alphabet, it portrays either hidden good or hidden evil and represents both the good man submitted to God and the evil rebellious man, who raises His fist toward God and is part of the army of the evil one. The pictograph is a snake coiled in a basket. There are 9 fruit of the Spirit. “You will know them by their fruit,” Jesus warned us. 9 is also the number depicting judgment. We are judged according to our fruit.
Separation and the display of what is really hidden in the heart is not an instant happening. It is a 3 part process. In Genesis 1, at the beginning of His creative restorative process, God creates light and separates the light, which He recognizes is good, from the darkness (on day 1). Then He places the firmament called Heaven to separate the waters above from that which is below, on day 2. On day 3, He draws back the earthly waters to reveal the clay underneath and calls the seed or DNA within it to bring forth fruit. The sons of God and the sons of satan will display fruit according to their spiritual DNA.
God’s restoration process, when dealing with a situation that is ‘without form and void’ or barren, destroyed, dark and empty, begins with a release of light, then examination as to characteristics, identification and separation. God called the firmament ‘heaven’. Waters represent words brought forth and words contain the power of life or death. So Heaven itself comes in-between the vessels which are bringing forth words which are earthly or soulish and those who are releasing life through their words (heavenly). Heaven forms an impenetrable barrier. The waters below and the waters above cannot mix. In other words, the time of mixture is over. The tares and the wheat have been separated. That which belongs to the darkness is clear and those who are the children of Light are easily identified. Then, thirdly, God draws back the covers and allows the fruit of the earthen vessel to be plainly seen. Whose seed do you carry within your earthen vessel? In the day when God rips off the covers, what kind of fruit will become visible for others to see? You can’t pick figs from a thorn bush.
Let’s use this month of Elul to cleanse our hearts of any darkness and press into deeper holiness. We are sons of the light and sons of the day. We are appointed to be those who dwell in heavenly places, with Heaven separating and protecting us from that which goes on in the way of judgment in the earthly realm.
Rev 22:11 He who is unrighteous (unjust, wicked), let him be unrighteous still; and he who is filthy (vile, impure), let him be filthy still; and he who is righteous (just, upright, in right standing with God), let him do right still; and he who is holy, let him be holy still.
The word translated ‘still’ in the above exhortation also means ‘further’ or ‘more’. In other words, let those who are holy and consecrated to the Lord, be even more holy. Press into deeper consecration in the next 30 days as we approach 5779.
Rev 22:12 Behold, I am coming soon, and I shall bring My wages and rewards with Me, to repay and render to each one just what his own actions and his own work merit.
