Holy​​ =​​ Consecrated​​ ​​ Sanctified​​ – Set Apart. ​​ Holiness is a wonderful way of life – living in a state of being, while looking forward to one’s eternal life in indescribable perfection.


Holy ​​ (Kadosh in Hebrew), ​​ means: ​​ ‘Set apart​​ from the world,​​ dedicated or consecrated to GOD, living a​​ sin-free life,​​ separated​​ from the world and its ways, set apart​​ for sacred use and purpose.


To​​ be sanctified means to be holy,​​ set apart for holy purpose,​​ doing all​​ the​​ things that are pleasing to GOD, being available for HIS purposes, including honouring, and exalting HIM, and being loyal, obedient, and faithful.​​ ​​ One is sanctified by ongoing spiritual growth. ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​ 


The opposite to being holy is to be apathetic, rejecting, uncommitted.


Justification is the action of declaring,​​ or making​​ just, or​​ righteous,​​ in the sight of GOD. ​​​​ One is justified in GOD’s eyes by believing in and following Christ.


Isaiah 6:1-4 ​​​​ ‘In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of His robe filled the temple. ​​ Above Him were seraphim (angels,) each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. ​​ And they were calling to one another:


“Holy, holy, holy is HE​​ LORD Almighty; the whole Earth is full of HIS​​ glory.”


At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke.’


1 Peter 1:14-16 ​​​​ ‘As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. ​​ But just as HE who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: ​​ Be holy, because I am holy.


1 Peter 2:9-10 ​​​​ ‘But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to GOD, that you may declare the praises of HIM who called you out of darkness into HIS wonderful light. ​​ Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of GOD; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.’


Hebrews 12:14 ​​​​ ‘Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy;​​ without holiness no one will see the Lord. ​​ See to it that no one falls short of the grace of GOD and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many.’​​  


When we are filled with the Holy Spirit,​​ GOD’s​​ holiness transforms us and​​ ‘sets us apart’ from this world and all its compromise​​ and evil.


Heaven can only accept​​ perfection; so​​ people​​ can only be seen by GOD to be​​ of purity, dignity, GOD-ly-ness,​​ and​​ sin-free​​ and holy​​ through Jesus​​ when He is the Lord of our life.


Revelation 4:8 ​​​​ ‘Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under its wings. ​​ Day and night they never stop saying:​​ 

Holy, holy, holy is the Lord GOD Almighty, WHO was, and is, and is to come.”
