"Only ye shall not go very far away."

"Only ye shall not go very far away."
Exodus 8:28

This is a crafty word from the lip of the arch-tyrant Pharaoh.
 If the poor bondaged Israelites must needs go out of Egypt, 
then he bargains with them that it shall not be very far away; 
not too far for them to escape the terror of his arms, and the observation of his spies. 

After the same fashion, the world loves not the non-conformity of nonconformity, 
or the dissidence of dissent; it would have us be more charitable and not carry matters with too severe a hand. 
Death to the world, and burial with Christ, are experiences which carnal minds treat with ridicule, 
and hence the ordinance which sets them forth is almost universally neglected, 
and even condemned. 

Worldly wisdom recommends the path of compromise, and talks of "moderation." 
According to this carnal policy, purity is admitted to be very desirable, 
but we are warned against being too precise; truth is of course to be followed, 
but error is not to be severely denounced. 

"Yes," says the world, "be spiritually minded by all means, 
but do not deny yourself a little gay society, an occasional ball, and a Christmas visit to a theatre. 
What's the good of crying down a thing when it is so fashionable, and everybody does it?" 
Multitudes of professors yield to this cunning advice, to their own eternal ruin. 

If we would follow the Lord wholly, we must go right away into the wilderness of separation, 
and leave the Egypt of the carnal world behind us. 
We must leave its maxims, its pleasures, and its religion too, 
and go far away to the place where the Lord calls his sanctified ones. 

When the town is on fire, our house cannot be too far from the flames. 
When the plague is abroad, a man cannot be too far from its haunts. 
The further from a viper the better, and the further from worldly conformity the better. 
To all true believers let the trumpet-call be sounded, 
"Come ye out from among them, be ye separate."

Special request:
 I have been praying to God Almighty in relation to my new residence and I need each of you please, to take me in your prayers, I need guidance, favor, and mercy it is one of the most important steps of my life I do not know if He wants me to go to my country, asking God Almighty to open doors wide open for whatever are HIS decision and to confirm thru his Holy Spirit. Amen.
 He is the #1 in my life and the most important, the purpose of my life is for HIM to increase in every single way that I can share the pure Gospel and I'm certain that HIS Word never comes back void. 
Isaiah 55:11 King James Version (KJV)
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth:
 it shall not return unto me void, 
but it shall accomplish that which I please, 
and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
