Title: To experience God in Jesus Christ in your life,
it is critical that you be holy as He is holy.
“Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord:”Hebrews 12:14 NKJV
“For I am the LORD your God. You shall therefore consecrate yourselves, and you shall be holy; for I am holy.
Neither shall you defile yourselves with any creeping thing that creeps on the earth.
For I am the LORD who brings you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God.
You shall therefore be holy, for I am holy.” Leviticus 11:44-45 NKJV.
Holiness is co-operating with the Holy Spirit in the way you think, the way you talk and the things you do.
Holiness is refusing to co-operate with the enemy of God and mankind satan,
in the way you think, the way you talk and the things you do.
The Holy Spirit is the standard for Holiness. Jesus Christ was hundred percent human
and also one hundred percent God. He lived a holy life.
In every situation you could ask yourself: "In this situation how would Jesus Christ have thought,spoken and acted?"
To answer that question you need to know the word of God, the scriptures.
Knowing the word of God is therefore critical for holiness.
Point of reflection:
His word says in Hebrews 12 as above "Pursue peace with all men and holiness, without which no-one shall see the Lord."
Seeing the Lord referred to here is not just talking about heaven,
it is referring to seeing and experiencing the working of God in this life right here on earth.
Living a holy life is therefore a pre-requisite to experiencing the life of God in your life.
His word goes further to say in Leviticus as above: I am the Lord your God,
consecrate or set yourself apart to serve and worship me alone and be holy, for I am holy.
His word goes further to say: I brought you out of Egypt to be your God,
you shall therefore be holy because I am holy.
Egypt is an image of the life we lived before knowing Jesus Christ and His salvation, the life of bondage to the enemy satan..
Critical point here is that God says He wants "to be your God"
this refers to being your all in all, your everything, your defining attribute in every situation you face and experience,
as the one who puts you in right standing with Him through Jesus Christ, your righteousness first and foremost
and then experiencing Him as our provider and source of all provision,
your guide and shepherd, your giver of peace, joy, well-being and emotional satisfaction,
your healer and giver of health, your victory banner, the One who defends and protects you,
the One who is present with you all the time.
For God to be your God (or reveal Himself to you, to be your all), you need to be holy
Putting it differently holiness is a necessary pre-requisite to experience God- because that is His nature.
Its like getting wet- you need to jump into the pool- you could scream and shout all you want outside the pool-
to get wet you need to jump in. To keep wet you need to remain in.
Receiving Jesus Christ gives you access to the pool, holiness keeps you in the water.
To live a holy life you need know God and to overcome the wicked one through a strong conviction of His word. (1John 2:12-14).
His word is a lamp to your feet and a light to your path (Psalms 119:105).
The psalmist says in Psalm 119:11(NKJV):
Your word have I hidden in my heart that I may not sin against you.
To live a holy life you also need to be filled with the Holy Spirit who will be your inner compass.
By the Holy Spirit God will put His laws in your mind and write them in your heart ( Hebrews 8:10).
Steps to holiness:
a) Acknowledge the risen Jesus Christ as Lord- you become born again
b) Set yourself apart and consecrate yourself for Almighty God- this is a declaration you make-
I am yours Lord with all that I am and with all that I am not I give myself to you.
(adjust your lifestyle, embrace the word of God and a life of prayer)
c) Reject the enemy satan and his demons- this is a declaration followed by action-
satan and demons I reject you, you have nothing in me and I have nothing in you,
you were defeated publicly by Jesus Christ on the cross- I command you to let me go and serve my God.
(If you have any charms, or items of demonic, satanic worship get rid of them,
adjust your lifestyle to rid of activities associated with satanic activity).
d) Be filled with the Holy Spirit- He will empower you, lead you and guide you- He is the game-changer.
e) Continue in the word and in prayer and let your mind be renewed daily-
and this happens you begin to grow in the knowledge of Almighty God.
Do you desire this?
When you are ready-
Prayer of consecration:
Heavenly Father in the name of Jesus Christ I thank you for sending your Son to suffer and die for my sin.
I acknowledge the risen Jesus Christ as Lord of my life today.
I set myself apart and consecrate myself to live for you and to serve you Lord.
I reject every working, every deception and every influence of the enemy satan and his demons in my life in the name of Jesus Christ.
I ask you Father in the name of Jesus Christ to fill and empower me with your Holy Spirit, right now.
I receive the abundant outpouring of your Spirit upon my life right now in the name of Jesus Christ
I present my life, my family to you...................
I present this Ministry to you.............................. lead, guide and direct.....
Today Father we remember Syria, DRC Congo, South Sudan, Middle East,Ukraine,Venezuela, Mozambique, Yemen
and every other part of the world where there is war, unrest and strife and bring them before you.
We bring before you the defenceless victims of war.................
You Lord who makes wars to cease from the ends of the earth-

We take authority over you, right now in the name of Jesus Christ.
In the name of Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.
Wishing you a joyous and prosperous Year 2021, the year in which Almighty God is calling you to become a chosen of Almighty God. God is calling us all- but we need to choose God,
it is you who chooses Almighty God to partner with Him in His agenda on the Earth. (Matthew 22:14). Choose to be a person seeking His will and His agenda on the earth, to be a person who is focused on performing His purpose.
As you do you join Moses, David the son of Jesse, the Apostles and other brethren who have gone before us. As you do Almighty God calls you a person after His own heart.(Acts 13:22).
As you seek the heart of Almighty God, He promises 1) to show you His mercies that are new every morning, 2) He promises to show you His faithfulness, 3) He promises to give you help from the sanctuary,
4) He promises to anoint you with His Holy Spirit, 5) He promises to answer you when you call upon Him, 6) He promises to increase your capacity to influence people (your horn), 7) He promises to prosper you,
8) He promises to give you victory over the enemy satan, 9) He promises to make a covenant with you (to be coupled and bonded to you as you fulfil His agenda on the Earth),
10) He promises never to fail you or leave you and more (Psalms 89:1-37).
You need to continue to seek Him in his word and as you do, His good hand will manifest upon your life. (Hosea 4:6; Ezra 7:6, 10) He will give you His burden to pray for salvation of souls across Planet Earth,
to be a faithful witness for Jesus Christ as well as being a faithful steward of what He has entrusted to you- the time, the mysteries of God and substance.
You also need to continue to seek His face in prayer as He promises to reveal to you hidden things of Almighty God. (Jeremiah 33:3)
As you do the Almighty God who foreknew you before you entered your mother's womb, who predestined you (that is wrote a script about your life),who is now calling you,
will now justify you through the sacrifice made by Jesus Christ on the cross and show you His glory and His goodness in Jesus Christ. (Romans 8:29-30).
We love you as we invite you to choose to be a person after the heart of Almighty God who will accomplish His will and His purpose on the Earth.
We are praying for you.
Apostle Dr Max and Joyce Matonhodze.
