Holiness. Honor. Integrity.

Throughout His relationship with His people, God demonstrated that He was holy.

When He appeared to Moses in the wilderness, He appeared “in a blazing fire” and told Him that “the place on which you are standing is holy ground.”

After the Children of Israel left Egypt, God told them to “consecrate yourselves therefore, and be holy, for I am holy.” And, because He was holy, He required that they act in holy ways. For they were His people. They were to stay away from anything unclean.

By the time of Ezekiel, nothing had changed. They had rebelled and gone their own way. But God still was holy. He told them that He would save them, not because they deserved or earned it, but to “prove the holiness of my great name.” He loved them in spite of their sins.

He promised to demonstrate His holiness by gathering them “from all the lands” and bringing them “into your own land.” We have seen the fulfillment of this Promise when, in 1948, Israel became a nation, for the first time in almost 1,900 years.

Today, when you look at the nation of Israel, remember that God is holy. That He keeps His Word. His purposes and plans will be fulfilled. His Promises always are true.

His Word is true for you. And, one day, every nation and every person will know that He alone is the Lord. Worship Him. Serve Him. And seek to live a holy life.
