THE HOLINESS OF GOD – Robert By Robert E. Hanna

Scripture Reading: Isaiah 6:3

" ... Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth  is full of His glory." As He prayed, Christ pled, "Holy Father,  keep through thine own name those whom Thou hast given  me ... " (John 1TUb). As the angel of the Lord spoke to Mary  regarding her miraculous conception he declared, " ... That holy  thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God" (Luke 1:3Sb). And the Spirit of God is consistently called  the Holy Spirit. Thus we see the total holiness of the triune  God.

God's holiness can be said to embrace virtually all of His  highest characteristics. His purity cannot be questioned or denied. His perfection is beyond definition. God is the only  source of truth; without Him is no peace, no safe harbor, no  escape from evil. He declared to Israel, through His servant  Moses, "Ye shall be holy: for I the Lord your God am holy"  (Leviticus 19:2b). Anything that we would become other than  vile and offensive must be accomplished by and through the  holiness of God.

Knowing that God is without imperfection, we are bound  by His Word. We must accept by faith the proclamations  therein contained. Those who would question His instructions  and admonitions will never fully receive and enjoy the  treasures of His blessing. The human intellect asks, "Why did  God do this or say that?" But the fully surrendered believerejoices in the knowledge that "All things work together for  good to them that love God, to them who are the called  according to His purpose" (Romans 8:28). Our constant intent  should be faithful adherence to the admonition of our apostle:  "Grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto  the day of redemption" (Ephesians 4:30).

How God Saves Men
Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
Read Romans 1:16, Romans 10:9-10 and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
