When Isaiah was brought before the very throne of God, he heard those remarkable words, “Holy, holy, holy, [is] the LORD of hosts: the whole earth [is] full of his glory” (Isa 6.3). After the miraculous deliverance of the nation of Israel out of bondage in Egypt, the chosen people declared in Exodus 15:11 “Who [is] like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods? who [is] like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful [in] praises, doing wonders?” Beloved, our God is a holy God. He is holy to a degree that is unlike anything in the universe. A holiness that is so marvelous that He Himself is The Light that lights the glorious Eternal City in Revelation 21,22.
But God being holy must not be understood to mean that He is weak or soft, for He is also our Rock. 1 Samuel 2:2 “There is none holy as the LORD: for [there is] none beside thee: neither [is there] any rock like our God. Because Jehovah is our holy Rock and God, He is to be praised.” The Psalmist in Psalms 99:3 “Let them praise thy great and terrible name; [for] it [is] holy.” As your day unfolds today dear ones, lift your heart to Jesus in praise, for He is holy. Regardless of the cup of providence that you are drinking, praise God for He is holy. Look to the cross of Calvary, and ponder the truth found in Luke 1:49 “For He that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy [is] His Name.” Speaking of this glorious gospel, Psalms 111:9 writes that “He sent redemption unto His people: He hath commanded His covenant for ever: holy and reverend [is] His Name.” Oh beloved, our God is loving and holy.
Again, the sacred record of heaven in Revelation 4:8 is “and the four beasts had each of them six wings about [him]; and [they were] full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.” May our great and glorious God give us a fresh vision and visitation of His holiness today. It is only when we grasp, by grace, the truth of God’s holiness, that we can be holy as He has called us to be holy. 1Timothy 1:17 “Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, [be] honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.”
