Jottings – His Holiness

Jottings Pencil

Speaking of Isaiah 6:3 – “His holiness is… His unapproachable and unique moral majesty before which sinful humankind instinctively quakes (Judges 6:22; 13:22). Secondly, just as holiness is the ‘whole truth’ about God himself, so it is the ‘whole truth’ about His immanence in creation: the whole earth is full of his glory. Holiness is the Lord’s hidden glory; glory is the Lord’s omnipresent holiness.”
