Understanding the holiness of God

Facing a consuming fire, a jealous God – Esh Oklah, El Kanna
Isaiah 33:14-15
14 “Who of us can dwell with the consuming fire?
    Who of us can dwell with everlasting burning?”
15 Those who walk righteously
    
and speak what is right,

As I go deeper into my relationship with God through Bible study and relationship- building with Him, I am awe struck with God’s holiness especially during our era of “anything goes” theology and spirituality.

In my early days, I naively thought I had it all figured out when I rededicated myself to the LORD; then the hat dropped. And, I turned my back on God.  

I was even dismayed when I realized that I was upset because he allowed certain things to happen to me. My walk with God has taught me that I need him every hour of every day. None of us is immune to falling into our sinful nature, no matter how pious our titles are before humankind.

We, his sinful creations, haven’t changed since the LORD created us. Yet through it all, God found a way not to cast us into oblivion through the redeeming blood of Jesus Christ.  

It’s really all about Jesus and once we understand this in our hearts, souls and minds, then we can understand the undeniable holiness of God, which is impossible to comprehend unless you have received salvation.

Salvation isn’t just a Sunday morning proclamation that we repent and confess Jesus Christ as our savior and then go on our merry way. 

Our earthly time is simply a journey -- our dress rehearsal into forever.
