Title: The Holiness of God

(No Transcript)
The Holiness of God
God is a Holy God!
  • Exalt the Lord our God, and worship at His
    footstool Holy is He. (Psalm 995)

What does it mean?
  • The holiness of God conveys His separateness, His
    uniqueness, His distinction as the Wholly Other,
    the One who can not be confused with the gods
    devised by men, the one who stands apart from and
    above the creation (ISBE).
  • Who is like Thee among the gods, O Lord? Who is
    like Thee, majestic in holiness, awesome in
    praises, working wonders? (Exodus 1511)

  • Holiness conveys also His moral perfection, the
    ethical spotlessness of His character
  • For I am the Lord your God. Consecrate
    yourselves therefore, and be holy for I am holy.
    (Leviticus 1144)

Implications of Gods holiness for all mankind
Gods holiness should cause us to approach Him
with reverence and unworthiness!
  • Then He said, Do not come near here remove your
    sandals from your feet, for the place on which
    you are standing is holy ground. (Exodus 35)
  • And one called out to another and said,Holy,
    Holy, Holy, is the Lord of hosts, The whole earth
    is full of His glory. (Isaiah 63)

  • The whole structure of Israelite society was
    framed by God with emphasis upon His holiness and
    the imperfection of man to approach Him.
  • What God has provided is a way for sinful men to
    approach Him in His holiness.

  • Since therefore, brethren, we have confidence to
    enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, by a
    new and living way which He inaugurated for us
    through the veil, that is, His flesh, and since
    we have a great priest over the house of God, let
    us draw near with a sincere heart in full
    assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled
    clean from an evil conscience and our bodies
    washed with pure water. (Hebrews 1019-22)

  • Yet even so, the principle of Gods holiness and
    mans unworthiness remains in the NT affirmation
    that we are saved by grace (unmerited favor) and
    in the recognition that when we do all that we
    have been asked by God we should say we are
    unworthy servants we have only done what is our
    duty to do (Lk. 1710).

Gods moral perfection should cause us to live in
distinctive purity.
  • Instruction in holiness by way of the truth
  • Sanctify them in the truth Thy word is truth.
    (John 1717)

  • Cleansing of moral imperfection by Jesus
  • And this is the message we have heard from Him
    and announce to you, that God is light, and in
    Him there is no darkness at all. If we say that
    we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the
    darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth
    but if we walk in the light as He Himself is in
    the light, we have fellowship with one another,
    and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from
    all sin. (1 John 15-7)

We must seriously apply these principles in our
  • As obedient children, do not be conformed to the
    former lusts which were yours in your ignorance,
    but like the Holy One who called you, be holy
    yourselves also in all your behavior because it
    is written, You shall be holy, for I am holy.
    (1 Peter 114-16)
  • Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us
    cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh
    and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of
    God. (2 Corinthians 71)

  • Be not conformed to the world but be
    transformed by the renewing of your mind so that
    you may prove what is that good, and perfect, and
    acceptable will of God (Rom. 122).
