Kadosh (Holy) In Every Realm

5 Apr

Kadosh (Holy) In Every Realm…

Two words today… Kohayn and Kadosh. Kohayn means ‘priest.’ Kadosh means ‘holy.’ In 1 Peter 2 it says that if you’re born again, you belong to a royal priesthood. But what does that mean?

Well, if you look at the high priest of Israel, you see he wore a crown on his head. Engraved on the crown was the word “Kadosh” or “Kodesh.” “Kadosh L’Adonai,” “Kadosh to the Lord.” Kadosh means “Holy,” “Separated,” and “Consecrated to God.”

If you are God’s priest, your life must be separated from the world to Him. A Kohayn, a priest, must be holy with regard to his or her home life, finances, temper, relationships and sexuality… Holy in treating one’s parents, wife, husband, and children…holy in what one does in one’s private life, in one’s entertainment and pleasures.

If you are Kohayn, a priest of the living God, then, above all, your life must be characterized by ‘kadosh,’ the quality of holiness and separateness to God. Put away that unholy thing and be kadosh as your Father in heaven is kadosh. For that is the crown of your priesthood.

I am the Lord your God; consecrate yourselves and be holy, because I am holy. Do not make yourselves unclean by any creature that moves along the ground. Leviticus 11:44

Assume your royal priesthood today as you walk in holiness and separateness, consecrated to God in all that you do.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
