Purity and holiness are two words that that have come across my path so much the last couple of weeks and not only mine. It is as if YHVH is urging His children to focus on becoming pure and holy before Him. Purity and holiness aren’t new, YHVH has always required it of us, but it is as if there is an urgency to this. We have to be pure and holy. Why is this necessary, you may wonder?

Each of us has a purpose and a role to play in YHVH’s plan. I saw a short video last week of dominoes, gradually increasing in size, that illustrated this beautifully. You may have seen it too. The biggest domino was standing almost half a meter tall and the smallest was so small it had to be put in place with a tweezer. That smallest domino was set in motion with the slightest movement of the tweezer, though it started the action of throwing over all the dominoes, even the greatest one. Even the slightest action has an effect of great significance.
I want to encourage you with this. Each of us, no matter how insignificant we are in our own eyes or the eyes of others, has an important role to play in YHVH’s plan. We may not even know what impact we make, but we do.
Life is about choices! When we were little children, one of the first things we learned was that we can choose. We could choose the toys we wanted to play with, or sometimes given the choice of a sugary treat. We also started learning about the consequences of wrong choices. As we grew up, we were given more choices. Choices that affected more than just the moment. Choices that could affect the outcome of our lives and how we spend eternity.
This article is about the single most important choice you will ever make.
Mediocracy has become the social norm; it has become the way modern society functions. It is called normal or balanced. As long as people live according the approved social standard, they are accepted. This approved social standard does not like or accept people who are different. They say they do embrace diversity, but they don’t. There are of course exceptions.
Many people when they hear of our faith and how we live it, comment about how interesting they find it and how much they respect us for living the way we do. However, many others view us as fanatics.
