Two passages come to mind this morning….Isaiah 6:1-8 and Revelation 4:1-8. The only 2 occurrences where “Holy, Holy, Holy” appear. The word “holy” appears nearly 700 times depending on translation but only twice is it trebled.
In Isaiah, the seraphs, whose number is not given, were proclaiming that the LORD Almighty is holy. The threefold repetition of the word holy suggests supreme or complete holiness. And in Revelation we saw another vision of worship in heaven with the same proclamation.
Many who read the blog will be headed to church today or you worship. A question stands out, “will you “see” God’s holiness?”. Holiness is something for each of us to discover in the God we worship. Daily frustrations and pressures at home, school or work can narrow our view of God. The Bible presents God as high and lifted up…ready to help us with the stuff that life presents.
So, ask yourself today…everyday, will you proclaim God’s holiness? Do you see and know that Jesus is God’s holiness revealed to humanity?
