Holy, holy, holy
The Bible uses the word holy or holiness over 400 times. The creatures around God’s throne say, “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty” day and night (Rev. 4:8). There is something mysterious that happens when things get close to this Holy God. They either are destroyed or are made holy. Revelation also speaks of the holy city, the holy angels, the holy apostles and prophets, and the holy Jerusalem (Rev. 21:2, Rev. 14:10, Rev. 18:20, Rev. 21:10).
Near the end of the book of Revelation, Jesus makes this interesting statement.
“He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.”
How can we understand this idea of holiness? At some point we will either be filthy or holy. And after a certain time no one can change anymore. I want to know how to become holy but I certainly can’t do that myself. My Bible tells me it must have something to do with getting closer and closer to Jesus.
Below is a great video that explains this idea of God’s holiness throughout the Bible and the power God has to change us!
