The power of God that enables separation is just in one phrase of the verse, “…saith the Lord Almighty.” This is the only place in the New Testament apart from the revelation that the Lord reveals Himself to us in this character. But how precious it is here!
What a galaxy of promises, seven of them repeated in quick succession, and all to encourage the believer who is prepared to walk in obedience to the word of God. What a constellation to brighten the firmament in the dark night of his absence. These promises surely sufficiently compensate for anything that the believer is called upon to renounce by walking in the narrow path. The companionship of our God, His constant smile, His fatherly care and protection are only assured His people as they obey the word “be ye separate”
