God Reveals Himself: Holy

heaven

God wants His creation to know Him.

To know ABOUT Him; to know His attributes.

And one of God’s main attributes is His HOLINESS.

HOLY: exalted or worthy of complete devotion as one perfect in goodness and righteousness

HOLY and HOLINESS are hard enough concepts for man–who is NOT holy–to merely grasp.

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God”
–Romans 3:23

God’s Holiness is proclaimed through the truth of God’s Word.

“There is none holy as the LORD: for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God.”
–1SAMUEL 2:2

“In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.”
–Isaiah 6:1-3

“For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.”
–Isaiah 57:15

“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.”
–Leviticus 19:2

“Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord”
–Hebrews 12:14

“For I am the LORD your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy: neither shall ye defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”
–Leviticus 11:44

“Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.”
–Revelation 15:4

“As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him.”
–2SAMUEL 22:31

“And ye shall be holy unto me: for I the LORD am holy, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be mine.”
–Leviticus 20:26

“This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.”
–1JOHN 1:5

There are many other verses in God’s Word which proclaim His holiness.

And, ALL those who are of the kingdom of heaven rejoice that God IS holy–else one would encounter trouble spending an eternity with a being who is crooked and spiteful and devious.

God desires that His creation–in particular, man–know Him.

It is one of the reasons that God provided man with His Word and has preserved it all of these centuries: in order to better know God and who He is.

And, to know God is to know that He is Holy.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
