Who may ascend onto the mountain of the Lord?

EXAMINE YOURSELF
And who may stand in His holy place?
 He who has clean hands and a pure heart,Who has not lifted up his soul to what is false, Nor has sworn [oaths] deceitfully. Psalm 24:3-4   Holy Bible Amplified Version                                                                            

The mountain was the meeting place with Jehovah.

If we desire an intimate relationship with Him, when we come to Him in prayer it is necessary for us to not be worshiping anything or anyone else other that Him.

We need to have integrity in our lives. It is necessary that our hands are clean. That is, that we have dealt honestly with everyone and not been deceitful.

Our hearts are to be pure. That means that we are not thinking about fleshly lust or revenge or being arrogant towards others.

To lift up our soul falsely means that we are not to gossip (which is spreading lies about others and spreading rumours, which can hurt or destroy others) and are not to give false testimony about others which will hurt them in court or in relationships.

To swear an oath in deceit means that we make promises that we have no intention of keeping. That is a form of lying. All of these things are detestable to Jehovah.

What right do you have to come to the temple of Jehovah when you are practicing the rituals of satan? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) for teaching me and helping me to be righteous enough to enter into You most Holy Tabernacle (we have our own which is a great story). I love spending time with You more than anything else in this world and look forward to spending eternity with You. Thank you for convicting me of any offences and the proper manner in which to repent of them. I praise You in the name of He whose blood opened the door to our Tabernacle Jesus Christ. Amen

Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year.

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.

  1. Certainly, we must prepare ourselves to be in His presence. Such preparation is a 24/7 task, because He is always in our presence. Jesus said, “I will never leave you….”

  2. Thank you Jesus for being the sacrifice for wiping away our sins and making us clean.
