The Lord is holy. Too holy to behold iniquity. He is holy. The Heavenly Father on high is a Holy God! He is. Lord, help us to see with our spirits Your Holiness that we can also grow in; that we can constantly be dressed in it. That we may always put on Christ. That our spirit may continually put on Christ and be renewed according to the image of the Lord. Colossians 3:10. Oh that we may dwell more and more in the strength of our spirit, drawing power from Your Holy Spirit; to live holy; to walk worthy of Your calling for our lives.
Your word says “Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord” in Hebrews 12:14. Because You are holy Lord. That our gaze may be on You, and behold Your holiness constantly. You remain untarnished from eternity. You are Holy Father. With love in our hearts, we honor you. Let us be willing in the days of Your power. Let us join you on Your day of battle. We have been dressed in holiness from birth until sin came. But thanks be to God the Father that redeemed us from sin. With inestimable precious blood of His Son, He purchased us and redeemed us to Himself. We are now Yours.
Clothed again in holiness from our new birth. We now have the freshness of a child. Psalms 110:3. Lord, cause us to grow in Your holiness. Cause us to shun anything that will take our gaze away from walking in Your Holiness. Cause us to shun profanity! Cause our physical eyes to shun it. Cause our spirit to mortify the flesh. Let us live for You. Let us be changed day by day into You. Let us, like Isaiah, see You sitting on the Great Throne with our Lord at Your Right Hand. Let us see You.
I yearn for You the Living God! Nothing satisfies like You. Nothing! Absolutely nothing! The earth and its riches cannot compare to the glory of Your Presence. Nor compare to the eternal expanse of Your Mighty Presence! Filling all in all. Electrifying. The dreadfulness of the Lord.
Out of Your presence comes forth great brightness. You made darkness Your secret place; thick clouds passing with hailstones and coals of fire. Psalms 18: 10-12.
Clouds and darkness surround You; great clouds with raging fire engulfing it with radiance like the color of amber, out of the midst of fire. You clothe Yourself with fire. The Ancient One.
Oh the Ancient One – You sit on a fiery throne with wheels of blazing fire, and river of fire pours out, flowing from Your Presence. Before You was an expanse of crystal glass burning with great fire with innumerable angelic beings ministering to You. Who can stand against You? For by Yourself You have created all things. The One who is King forever. The One whom no one created. The Self Existing God! The whole creation came from You. They shall all appear before You at the end of ages! Before Your dreadfulness, clothed in Great Light where there is no shadow of turning nor variables.
You have remained the same from eternity to eternity. If there was ever any eternity, You were there. The Great Being! The Father of all spirits. The Father of Jesus our Lord. Oh, let every being submit to Your Lordship through Your Son. Let every flesh be silent before You. Let every arrogance of men perish in their dreams. Let new hearts be given to sons and daughters of men. Like You declared – Let Your Spirit be poured out on all flesh. Let the vision of God be birthed in their hearts! Oh, turn their hearts towards You, the Living God. Cut their chords. Join them to the Living Being. Give hope to their hearts. Revive them in the midst of the year. Bring salvation to their hearts by Your laborers. Cause more in the valley of decision to stand for You. For You are God from eternity to eternity. You will never change.
I saw the Lord standing so high. I saw His dreadfulness. “Walk in My Holiness,” I heard. “Let them walk in My Holiness. Let them carry My Precious Seed in holiness. Touch not the profane things. Turn to me and I will receive you. I will cause My glory to pass before you and you shall know that I the Lord have called you to me. Walk in my ways. Feed on My Words.”
Friends, let us “Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord” according to Hebrews 12:14
In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple. Above it stood seraphim; each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. And one cried to another and said:
“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts;
The whole earth is full of His glory!”
Isaiah 6: 1-4
