“You are to be holy to Me; for I the LORD am holy, and have set you apart from the peoples (nations) to be Mine.” (Lev 20:26)
From what I understand, the Hebrew term ‘Holy’ is transliterated as: ‘other than’. As such, because our very spirits have been ‘reborn’ we are no longer subject to the pulls, tugs and outright demands of this world, but to be ‘set apart.’
The Hebrew term ‘set apart’ is badal, meaning: to separate, disjoin, as two places by a veil, fence or wall.
Jesus spells it out for us in his prayer: “I am not asking that you remove them from the world, but I ask that you guard their hearts from evil, For they no longer belong to this world any more than I do.” (John 17:15) ❤️
