Who shall ascend into the holy 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. Psalms 24: 3-4
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. Matthew 5: 8
But the path of the just is as a shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day. Proverbs 4: 18
Blessings are upon the head of the just;… Proverbs 10: 6
There shall no evil happen to the just… Proverbs 12: 21
For I am the Lord your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy:.. Lev. 11: 44
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. Lev. 11:45
To have the presence of the Lord near, you must be holy, for He is holy. No unclean thing can be in His presence. We cannot make ourselves holy. Only God can do that for us. When we become a clean vessel it is only then that we can approach God and really have that true relationship with Him.
If every man, woman, boy or girl could only see God and what He is truly like they would experience such a love and a wonderment that could never be replaced.
