Who is like You, O Lord, among the gods? Who is like You, glorious in holiness, Fearful in praises, doing wonders? (Exodus 15:11 NKJV)
Holiness means WHOLENESS; To say that “God is holy” does not mean he abstains from sin but rather refers to the WHOLENESS, fullness, beauty, and abundant life that overflows within the Godhead.
God lacks nothing: ” He is unbroken, undamaged, unfallen, completely complete and entire within Himself. He is the indivisible one, wholly self- sufficient , and the picture of perfection. Holiness is not one aspect of God’s character; it’s the whole package in glorious unity”
To be holy is to partake of His WHOLENESS; it is to stop acting broken (because in Him we are not broken) and to allow Him to express His WHOLENESS through us (a holy generation)
Holiness preaching that emphasizes what you must do is carnal Christianity. New covenant holiness is based on who Christ is (our holiness) and what He has done ( sanctified you)
