    Our walk with the Lord is a race indeed a marathon it a walk of faith looking up to Him the author and the finisher of our faith. He has finished His own and reigning with His father. He is the arbiter we must walk with perceiverance keeping to our lane so as not to be disqualified Setting aside every weight that will hinder us bidding goodbye to besetting sins - pride etc The Lord will help us.

    V. 2 - If you've ever read, in depth, what Jesus suffered even before his crucifixion, before Pilate, etc, and then read Heb.12:2 - .....and for the joy that was set before him.....; joy not for himself, but for all the souls that would be with Him because of His sacrifice.

    We are a blended family by God's protection He called us out to Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:" And Hebrews12vs28and29 "Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:" Vs: 29 "For our God is a consuming fire."

    I DON'T THINK , I KNOW THAT THIS SCRIPTURE VERSE IS ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL VERSES IN THE ENTIRE BIBLE. THIS VERSE HEBREWS 12:14 SAY'S WHAT IT MEANS AND MEANS WHAT IT SAYS NO MAN SHALL SEE THE LORD IN PEACE WITHOUT HOLINESS. PEOPLE HOLINESS IS GOD AND GOD IS HOLINESS. TODAY AND YESTERDAY GOD WAS HOLY AND TOMORROW GOD WILL STILL BE HOLY AND HOLINESS. THEREFORE ? WHY WOULD YOU OR ANYONE ON THIS EARTH WANT TO BE IN ANY OTHER FAITH BELIEVING STATE OTHER THAN BEING HOLY. IN CONCLUSION BUT NOT FINISH THE WHOLE WORLD SHOULD REEXAMINE THEIR RELIGIONS AND SEE RATHER THE CHURCH THEY ATTEND TRULY TEACHES PURE HOLINESS AND NOT SOME MESS THAT LIMITS GOD FROM BEING ALL IN ALL IN THEIR LIFE. THE TIME IS VERY CLOSE TO JESUS CHRIST RETURN WHO IS GOD , AMEN ! SO FOR ALL THE HUMAN RACE THAT ARE NOT HOLINESS SHOULD IMMEDIATELY ASK GOD TODAY " WHAT MUST I DO TO BE SAVED " ANSWER OBEY IN THE BIBLE ACTS 2:38 TO START AND SEE WANT JESUS GOD MAKE YOU HOLINESS. PEACE UNTO YOU AND THE LORD JESUS LOVE YOU ALWAY .
