“Holy” God — “Holy Bible”
by Pastor Kevin Sadler
When we say that God is holy, what does that mean to you? Pure, yes. But the definition of holiness is not exhausted by purity. When the angels around the throne of God constantly say, “Holy, Holy, Holy”;
And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory (Isaiah 6:3) 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 (Revelation 4:8), they aren’t just saying “Purity, Purity, Purity,” but more than that. The word “holy” means to be set apart. When the Scriptures declare that God is holy; Exalt the LORD our God, and worship at his holy hill; for the LORD our God is holy (Psalm 99:9), it means that He is not like any other. There is no one like Him. He is matchless and incomparable. No one is His equal. He is unique in Himself and His Person, unsurpassed in beauty, worth, and perfection. He is set apart unto Himself. As it’s been said, “God is always the greatest thing in existence.”
When the Bible refers to “the holy Scriptures”; And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus (2 Timothy 3:15), “holy” means much the same thing. The Bible is not like any other thing. There is no other book like it. It has no equal. It is incomparable, unsurpassed in its beauty, worth, and perfection. The Bible is set apart from all other books. It is the Word of God.
