In this video am sharing specifically what the Lord revealed to me on why outward holiness is as important as inner holiness.
This message concerns both brothers and sisters,not sisters only.
No one lights a lamp and covers it up,you want the light to be seen!(Luke 8:16)
When Jesus was talking to me about outward holiness, He asked,"why do you think I said you are the light of the world?Is the world going to look at your heart and know you are my children? No!The world will look at your character, your dressing,your speech,your behavior, and your conduct,that's what will show you are my children."
If Jesus Christ has made you to be born of the spirit,even the outside will change.(matthew 3:8)
People who do not want to present their BODIES as a living sacrifice, HOLY and acceptable unto God as Romans 12:1 asks us to usually quote Matthew 23:26 to call the teaching of outward holiness as "being a pharisee"
but what they don't know is that in this verse Jesus was also talking about outward holiness. What He was condemning was "a show of outward holiness" which is just meant to appear to be holy before people, while the inside is extremely filthy.
Even now Jesus is still condemning that kind of "holiness"
and it will still lead you to hell.
What Jesus is requiring from you and what He has sent me to tell you is that holiness must start from your heart,meaning a change of heart and recognition of Jesus Christ as your saviour,this recognition of Him must lead you to completely surrender yourself and be willing for Him to take ALL of you which includes your thoughts,charac
ter, speech,and even your dressing.
They must all reflect the glory and the will of God.
If you think that God is pleased with you wearing tight,short,or revealing clothing, am here to tell you that you are wrong.
I did not makeup what am telling you and I did not get it from a pastor or anyone,the Lord Jesus Christ who died to save you told me to warn you to stop such dressing because it will lead you to hell,He said IT BREAKS HIS HEART TO TINY TINY PIECES when He sees His children dressing like that.
Because it shows that they haven't yet surrendered their BODIES to Him.
When you begin to think like Jesus, you will realize "I do not have to go out in public with my thighs exposed because am a child of God."
To tell you the truth,God is very passionate about this message, Its the heart of the Father am telling you about right now,He is so disappointed that the people He had appointed to point the way of truth to His children are sugar coating things and comforting the people Jesus died for on their way to hell!(Jeremiah 6:23-14)
Matthew 23:25-26 says,"woe unto you,scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter,but within they are full of extortion and excess.
Thou blind pharisee, cleanse FIRST that which is within the cup and the platter, that the outside of them may be clean also."
Wow!this is a very powerful verse because Jesus makes it so clear!
He makes it clear that if you first clean the inside the outward will (automatically) be clean!
Jesus is against you putting a up a false show that you are a Christian by wearing long things,not using artificial hair,makeup, jewelry when inside of you you are still full of unforgiveness,hatred,slander,gossip,lust,lies,busy bodying!
Jesus will still reject you because you haven't surrendered to Him,you are only pretending so as to appear right before people or to be accepted in a certain congregation while in the actual fact you are extremely far from God!
Some people use this as a basis to refuse the importance of outward holiness, they say because some people outwardly dress holy but are so filthy inside,they would rather be "holy" in their hearts but dress worldly!
That is an error,two wrongs don't make a right and that won't be the basis of God's judgement.
Both categories of people I have talked about I.e those who want to dress modestly but remain with inner sin like hatred,lies,gossip etc as well as the people who claim that they are "holy" inside despite dressing worldly, both people are headed to hell,the Lord will accept NONE of them!
Jesus doesn't care about numbers,Yes He wants ALL to come to salvation but He has exalted His word even above His name! (Psalm 138:2)
He is looking for those who will surrender their ALL and allow Him to transform them inside and that change will DEFINITELY show on the outside too because you are a city on a hill and can't be hidden!(Matthew 5:14)
If TRULY you surrender to Jesus He is going to begin to deal with you about your pride, strife,lust,and He will also deal with you about your dressing!
Because He is transforming you to be like Him in ALL ways.
If your outside is still dirty,it just tells us that even the inside hasnt yet been washed because Jesus said if the inside is washed,even the outside will become clean,it wont remain dirty,if its dirty,then we know that the inside hasn't yet been washed.
I share more on this in the video below.shalom!
Outward holiness is as important as inward holiness and should never be ignored.
