Amen, Amen, Amen!!!

That is so awesome of a comment Mable…and “Amen” and given three times…once for each of God’s holiness and each of the God-head family. Wow. Love it!

Mable nailed it! Awesome article Jack, THE attribute of attributes, from which all others flow. Thanks for your continued Biblical basis for writings! This one gives me goosebumps as I meditate on it…

Jack April 23, 2012 at 9:09 pm

Thank you so much Jeff. The many years that I have grown to seek out God and His attributes the more that I have seen just how awesomely holy He is…and the more I get to know about Him and is Perfect Holiness, the more that I see just how unfathomable my gap is from His righteousness is…how desperately wicked I am in His comparison can not even be described or imagine. Thank you so much my friend. I truly believe of all His attributes, this is the greatest of all and the very least of all of mine! That He would stoop to scrap a wretch like me up is too much to take into my finite mind. How how awesome is our God.

I always see the same number on a daily basis in everything I do and im puzzled by it. No matter what im doing I constantly see the same number.

I don’t think it’s a coincidence at all Jack. I’ve heard it said that the next great move of God will be one which will deal with restoring Holiness to the Church. It’s the one which most preachers don’t touch on much, for various reasons. Perhaps no one can define it; although it is Christianity 101 after John 3:16.

I consider it one of the reasons for lack of discipleship in the Body of Christ. Such a wonderful, thought-provoking article which may propel us all into self-examination and repentance. God Bless You, as I am looking for more of your articles to give such insight.

Thank you so very much Beverly. This was the basis of one of my messages to the church I am under-shepherd of. Truly we need to be seeking after God’s holiness for He has said, “I am holy, be thou also holy” (1 Peter 1:16) and that is a great striving to be reaching for by God’s Spirit and power for it is not in us to do so. I thank God that “He has made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him” (2nd Corinthians 5:21). Amen to your “examine ourselves as to whether we be in the faith” statement. Again I say Amen to that.

Please come back to see us again soon my friend.

Im a little confused about holiness, if god made us holy through jesus then that means we are spotless and as if we never sinned, right?

Jack Wellman July 27, 2013 at 10:47 am

It is easy to be confused on this Genesis…..yes, we are declared rightouess and Holy before God by Jesus’ work (2 Cor 5:21) but we remain sinners still (Rom 7). We are all going to be sinning yet still saved and we are not sinless but Christians do and will sin LESS. The tension between these two will remain until the Lord comes for us.

Hello Pastor Wellman,
Pastor, you absolutely blessed me with the explanation of the greatest attribute of God. However, I do have two questions.
First, a lay teacher at ourchurch stated the following: “God does not see His wrath as a character flaw but as equal with His holiness. See how He equates the two in the chain of verses below. And he cites
Ps. 89:35 and Ps. 95:11 as examples. He then says,”God equally affirms an oath on His holiness and His wrath, equating them in importance and perfection. And since Christ is God in human form, He also has a perfect holiness and wrath.” He then cites Col. 2:9, Rev 6:16, Rev 19:11-15. He then quotes a page and a half of scripture on wrath from Torrey’s Topic, some website I assume. First question: Is wrath really equal in importance to God’s holiness?
Second question: would I be wrong in presupposing that the core attribute from which all of God’s attributes issue forth is His Holiness?
Thank you for your response.
Grace and peace,
Edward Flores

Jack Wellman November 16, 2016 at 5:48 pm

Thank you Mr. Flores. As for God’s wrath being equally important to His holiness, I don’t see Scripture ever repeating, to the 3rd degree, anything about His wrath. His holiness is frequently said three times, for the greatest emphasis possible in Jewish writings, “Holy, Holy, Holy.” As for the second question, you may be spot on to see the core attribute from which all attributes flow and that is His holiness. That is well put and very insightful. Wow. I liked that. Thank you sir, you may be exactly right in your 2nd question. Thank you again sir.
