Series: Book You Can Trust
The pre-eminate attribute of God is His HOLINESS. All other aspects of His character radiate outward from that attribute. His holiness is His utter distinction from all His creatures and creation. He is above, beyond and separate from all that is decaying, defiled and temporal.
His nature is HOLY.
His decisions are HOLY.
His character is HOLY.
His responses are HOLY.
His decrees are HOLY.
His sovereignty is HOLY.
His love is HOLY.
His wrath is HOLY.
His jealousy is HOLY.
God in every way is HOLY.
To Understand Even a Tiny Bit of His HOLINESS is to FEAR GOD!
The universe FEARS GOD.
Death and disease FEAR GOD.
The fig tree Christ cursed FEARED GOD.
The wind and the waves FEAR GOD.
The demons FEAR GOD.
Satan FEARS GOD.
All the angels of heaven FEAR GOD.
All the saints FEAR GOD.
Fearing God Demands a Response
God created us.
When we fell into sin He sought us.
When we had no hope He came and bought us.
When our sins were unpayable He offered Himself as payment.
When we were guilty He was a substitutionary sacrifice for our sin.
All that truth leads us to respond. First in saving faith and then in surrendered life.
All around people are dying without hope. They can't find their way to the pathway of hope. The Lord said fearing Him leads you to purity - it is "CLEAN" and permanence - because you will be "ENDURING FOREVER". This is the pathway to God and it is the road to heaven. Even the greatest on earth will miss that way unless they begin fearing God. Responding to God is imperative today. Are you responding to God? Do your neighbors, friends and relatives know that you fear God?
Psalm 19:9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. (KJV)
The fear of the Lord.
A Person Would Fear God:
When they come to realize his holiness as Isaiah did! Isaiah 6:1-5
