The original intent of this series is to teach us seven things that God says is holy.
The meaning of holiness isn’t that we are meant to be without flaw, but that we are sanctified and kept aside for the special use for the purpose of the master.
What makes us holy is in not getting contaminated by the things that contaminate the people of the world.
1. The Sabbath Day: Exodus 20:811
God has given us 7 days but He doesn’t expect us to use up all, on what we like.
God himself rested on the 7th day to teach us the principle of the sabbath, that even though we can work - we shouldn’t.
We can’t work continuously, we must take out time for prayer, communion, fellowship, meditation etc with God.
We must stop consuming our time at work and God’s time at work also. Anytime we do that, we are believing satan and eating that which God has asked us not to.
Matthew 4:4 - As human, we aren’t designed to be sustained by bread (money) alone, but by what God tells us every day when we spend time with Him.
Man is not designed to live by natural sustenance alone but by every word that comes out of the mouth of God.
There is no useless life, there are only disconnected lives.
Many of us are broke because we don’t have a word from God yet. We must constantly receive a word from God and this can only happen when we spend time with Him.
Prosperity for us as believers isn’t always based on accumulation of material things.
Exodus 16:4-5 - You will not miss anything by being in church, but anything you use God’s time to make, you will eventually lose it.
