God continually tried to remind Israel that their prophetic destiny to be His witness to the Gentiles would require holiness. They were to be separate from all nations to maintain their unique relationship with God.
For that reason, God gave them specific ways to eat, to dress and to worship Him.
Again the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel: Tell them to make tassels on the corners of their garments throughout their generations, and to put a blue thread in the tassels of the corners. And you shall have the tassel, that you may look upon it and remember all the commandments of the Lord and do them, and that you may not follow the harlotry to which your own heart and your own eyes are inclined, and that you may remember and do all My commandments, and be holy for your God.
The holiness that God wanted from Israel then and today was through loving and faithful obedience.
PRAY FOR THE TIME THAT ISRAEL WILL BE HOLY NOT THROUGH WORKS BUT THROUGH FAITH IN YESHUA.
