Isaiah 6:3 And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.
A person’s concept of God determines more than anything else the kind of life that person will live. There are many things being emphasized today about God and His Divine nature. God is grace; God is love; God is good, all true and we need to know all these things about God. God is, though, above all things holy. Holiness is His nature and holy is used more often as a prefix to God’s name than any other attribute. The word holy is used over 611 times as compared to grace 170 times. (The only thing even close to the frequency of mention is righteous 238 times plus righteousness 306 equaling 544). Holiness is at the core of who God is. Shouldn’t true preachers and teachers be mentioning this more in their messages?
In the instances recorded in Scripture where men are permitted to see into the throne room of heaven and view God in the fullness of His glory they hear angelic beings saying or singing continuously Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord Almighty Isaiah 6:3; Revelation 4:8. Throughout the angelic songs no other divine attribute is called or repeated 3 times. Repetition means it is important or an emphasis and rarely is anything repeated three times. We do not observe the angels saying, “Eternal, Eternal Eternal; Merciful, Merciful, Merciful; Grace, Grace, Grace; all wonderful attributes, characteristics, and truths about God. Neither do we hear, “Relevant, Relevant, Relevant; or Authentic, Authentic, Authentic; or Seeker, Seeker; Seeker.” No enticing words of man’s wisdom 1 Corinthians 2:1-5. No, my dear brother and sister we hear, “Holy, Holy, Holy.” God is Holy; He lives in a Holy Heaven; His Son Jesus is Holy; His Spirit is Holy; His Scriptures are Holy and He wants us to be holy and without blemish before Him Ephesians 1:4. He recreated us after Himself, or with the same nature, in righteousness and true holiness Ephesians 4:24.
