All the land that GOD apportioned to the children of Israel came to be described as the Holy Land, only because Abraham resided in it.
The land was not holy in and of itself.
The Land became Holy because of the Faith of One Man.
Because Abraham was Holy, the land GOD gave him was Holy. Abraham was the 1st person to pursue GOD by faith, and by the faith of one man who followed GOD, into the land that GOD showed him…, the land became holy as well.
Holiness permeates and saturates every place that the sole of your feet shall tread…
It’s because of your faith. It’s because of who you are to GOD.
Just like it was for Abraham, the land was not called holy until he occupied it.
Even if you are the only one in the land, the only one in the room with faith in GOD, the only one in place believing in GOD, even if you are the only in the workplace praying and believing in GOD, even if you are the only one in the neighborhood, who stands with GOD… Wherever you are…
You are the one that makes that place Holy Unto the LORD.
Stand the watch, be faithful and vigilant, pray unceasingly. Call for the abundance of rain in your land at all times. Protect the anointing on your life and over those that GOD has given you. Saturate them in prayer and thanksgiving. Hold the territory for the Kingdom of Heaven.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. John 14:12
You are the key ingredient that remains in the earth to do the works of the LORD. Wherever you are, you bring holiness into the earth.
And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come. Luke 19:13
Here’s what I believe… When the son of man cometh, He will find faith in the earth, (Luke 18:8), because You will be here holding territory for GOD.
Here’s to You and all of Your Greater Works…
Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them, Ye shall be holy: for I the Lord your God am holy. (Lev 19:2)

Abraham, the father of Israel, the first person to follow GOD and teach others in the belief of one God. God commanded Abraham to leave his birthplace; his kindred, his country and his father’s house and go … to the land that I will show you. (Gen 12:1)

“It was not through the law that Abraham and his offspring received the promise that he would be heir of the world, but through the righteousness that comes by faith.” (Rom 4:13)
