To be set-apart is to be holy.

Updated on January 22, 2018

Opening Scripture

Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 30:15--"For thus said the Master YeHoVaH, the Set-apart One of Yisra'EL, 'In returning and rest you are saved, in stillness and trust is your strength.'" (TS2009)

To be set-apart is to be holy.

Vayyiqra (Leviticus) 11:44--"For I am YeHoVaH your Elohim, and you shall set yourselves apart. And you shall not defile yourselves with any swarming creature - the one creeping on the earth." (TS2009)

Who is the one who creeps on the earth?

Bereshit (Genesis) 3:1--"And the nahash was more crafty than all the lives of the field which YeHoVaH had made, and he said to the woman, 'Is it true that Elohim has said, "Do not eat of every tree of the gan?"'" (TS2009)

Bereshit (Genesis) 3:14--"And YeHoVaH Elohim said to the nahash, 'Because you have done this, you are more cursed than all livestock and more than every beast of the field. On your belly you are to go, and eat dust all the days of your life.'" (TS2009)

Hazon (Revelation) 20:2--"And he seized the dragon, the serpent of old, who is the devil and ha-satan, and bound him for a thousand years." (TS2009)

Nahash means a serpent or a snake, or the image of a serpent. Other denotations include the dragon, the great serpent ... ha-satan.

How do we NOT defile ourselves with this "one creeping on the earth"?

Ma'asei (Acts) 26:18--"Open your eyes, turn from darkness to light, and the authority of ha-satan to Elohim, in order to receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are set-apart by belief in Me." (TS2009)

Who is Me?

Yochanan (John) 14:6--"Yeshua said to him, 'I am the Way, and the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to Avva except through Me.'" (TS2009)

Yeshua is the Way, and the Truth, and the Life. He says, "Ani ha-derekh ve ha-emet ve ha-chaim." Only Him.

How do we believe?

Romiyim (Romans) 10:9--"That if you confess with your mouth the Master Yeshua and believe in your heart that Elohim has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved." (TS2009)

The heart of the matter is the matter of the heart.

We are sinners in a fallen world in need of salvation. YeHoVaH gave His Son, Yeshua, that such salvation is provided. When we believe in Yeshua, when we confess with our mouths that we are sinners, when we repent in our hearts and claim that Yeshua is the Way and the Truth and the Life, we will be saved. Why do we need salvation? Because we are sinners in a fallen world in need of salvation.

And, once we are saved, we become set-apart, or holy, if you prefer.

Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 30:15--"For thus said the Master YeHoVaH, the Set-apart One of Yisra'EL, 'In returning and rest you are saved, in stillness and trust is your strength.'" (TS2009)

A Blessing

Baruch ata Adonai Eloheinu, Melech ha-olam, asher natan lanu Meshiach Yeshua ve-hadiberot shel ha-berit chadashah. Baruch ata Adonai, notein ha-berit ha-chadashah.

Blessed are You, Adonai Eloheinu, King of the universe, Who gave to us Yeshua ha-Meshiach and the commandments of the new covenant. Blessed are You, Adonai, Giver of the new covenant.

      Thank you, Shirley. No matter how many times I read about His love for us, sending His son to die for us, the spark to worship and love our God is always refreshed, and stayed powered by His Word.

      I can only say, beautiful article, as always.

      May your day be peaceful, my sister.

      The priests were never in control. They were merely vessels of the sacrificial laws. YeHoVaH has always been in control. To be set-apart is to be holy...these terms are one and the same. Thank you for your comment. Be blessed!
