“Holy, Holy, Holy is the LORD God Almighty……..The One who always was, who is, and who is still to come,” (Revelation 4:8)
Isaiah was a prominent citizen of Judah during the eighth century B.C., a prophet of God. Today, we would consider him one of the “spiritual elite.” Isaiah was focused on the sins of others, calling them to repentance.
But at one point, Isaiah had a vision of heaven and the holiness of the GOD ALMIGHTY. Now that he found himself in the very presence of our Holy God, he became dramatically aware of his own sin and unrighteousness. As the seraphim flew they were saying, “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty.” Terrified, he exclaimed, “My destruction is sealed, for I am a sinful man and a member of a sinful race….I have seen the King, the Lord Almighty!” (Isaiah 6:5).
This repetition, “Holy, Holy, Holy,” tells us that God’s holiness is the supreme attribute of His being, the foundation of His eternal existence. His sovereignty and His role as judge are rooted in and flow out of His holiness. In fact, theologians speak of God’s holiness as His “central and supreme perfection.”
Unfortunately, God’s holiness has been ignored by modern Christianity. Our unwillingness to acknowledge a holy God reflects our failure to recognize who God really is.
Your View of God Really Matters …
Do you honour God as Holy or think of Him as “the man upstairs?” Do you treat His name as Holy, or have you cheapened it by what you say and voluntarily choose to listen to? Do you daily worship Him or, more often than not, ignore Him? What do you think it really means in your life today to say that God is Holy?
What More Does God Say?
Isaiah 6:1-4; Exodus 15:11
Because God is Holy, I will devote myself to Him in purity, worship and service.
May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!
