God: set the standard….
Psalm 24:3-4 (KJV) “Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully”.
God does some things at times that confuses us as believers; we want to make grand statements about Him and say “He will never do this or that”, then He confounds us and does as He pleases.
One thing that still puzzles some believers is “Jacob I love and Esau I hate”; God hating? Yes, Esau was a fornicator and married the Canaanite women who were adversary to the Israelite. They were at war with each other, yet He went to bed with them.
But the fact of the matter is that God has set the standard for what is required when He calls you to His worship; He has standards for those in His presence; purity and holiness is still expected.
Maintain your way with God and see Him usher and receive you in the secret place.
