- Day 3 -
The Plumb Line of Holiness
“Behold I am about to put a plumb line in the midst of My people …I will spare them no longer”(Amos 7:8). YAHveh (God) says, “…raise your voice like a trumpet, and declare to My people their transgression…” (Isaiah 58:1). Lift your voice that they will hear and heed what the Spirit of Truth is saying, so that they might be freed from any error of their ways that veers from the plumb line of biblical truth and pulls them off the straight and narrow path that leads to eternal life.
YAHveh (the LORD) prophesied through the prophet Isaiah see, “I lay a stone in Zion, [YAHshua (Jesus)] a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation … See I will make justice the measuring line and RIGHTEOUSNESS the plumb line” (Isaiah 28:16-17).
The shofar (trumpet) is sounding throughout the earth to get the attention of a remnant of people from every tribe and every nation. This called out chosen people is a small group of sold out believers who have counted the cost and continue to pay the price to walk in humble obedience to their beloved King and Savior. Not everyone who calls Him Lord and Savior within the religious system belongs to Him. The righteous requirements of the righteous King are a very straight and narrow path. They are not impossible, because with YAHveh nothing is impossible. It is a matter of the heart.
Those who desire truth at any price will joyfully forfeit the familiar comfort zone of this world, their own selfish pursuits and ambitions, and any attitude or practice that has compromised YAHveh’s holy biblical standards.“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness” (Isaiah 5:20)and who rise up and contend against the knowledge of YAHveh (the LORD) and His immutable truths—the holy Scriptures.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, my ears and heart are hearing Your warnings and the urgency to recognize Your biblical plumb line of righteousness. I don’t want to rebel against Your standards I want to be conformed by the truth to the image of my Savior and be found holy and pleasing in Your sight. Please give me the wisdom, power and guidance of Your Spirit to recognize and repent for the error of my ways. Forgive me for the times that I have called good evil and evil good and justified my veering from Your plumb line of truth. I want my life to please You and to uphold Your beloved Son’s precious blood that poured out for the forgiveness of my sins. May I live a life worthy of the price You paid to make me Your redeemed child.
