Beautiful to God

Holiness is beautiful to God. Religion has pushed an ugly picture of what holiness looks like. Holiness has to do with ?glimmering white robes.? These are robes that sparkle with God?s glory and beauty. When we are clothed in His Holiness we are clothed in the most beautiful garments ever known to any creature.

After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, saying, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying:
“Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom,
Thanksgiving and honor and power and might,
Be to our God forever and ever.

Revelation 7:9-12

The Angels of God are Holy Angels. We are coming into union with heaven when we choose to put on these garments. These robes have all to do with the purity, the commitment, the consecration, and the heart of sacrifice and covenant to and before the Lord. We are marked “Holy To The Lord”. This is the highest mark that could ever be placed on any creature in the Kingdom of God.

And I said unto them, Ye are holy unto the LORD . . .

Ezra 8:28

Holy Ones

The definition of saint is “holy one”. We are His holy ones who have been called to go in and out of the courts of the Priestly King Jesus. We are also those priestly kings by His blood. He has made us to be a?royal priesthood. Why? To show forth the praises of Him who has called us out of darkness into the Light of the Kingdom of God! (1 Peter 2:9)

To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.

Revelation 1:5-7

The Atmosphere of Heaven

So these robes are robes that qualify us for worship. How do we put on the robe? His blood has made us righteous. This enables us to come into the Holy of Holies. But there is another element that makes the entrance a reality. It is ?praise?. We enter into His courts with thanksgiving in our hearts for the blood of Jesus and His sacrifice that made the way. We enter His courts with praise for this is the substance and atmosphere of heaven. Worship is the atmosphere of heaven!

The four living creatures, each having six wings, were full of eyes around and within. And they do not rest day or night, saying:
“Holy, holy, holy,
Lord God Almighty,
Who was and is and is to come!”

Revelation 4:8

The four living creatures constantly say “holy, holy, holy” to the Lord. As we behold His holiness we become alive to the reality and begin to say the same thing! As we spend time in the atmosphere of heaven we become transformed and take on the nature of Him who we behold. By impartation and entering into the reality of the heavenly atmosphere we are being changed into His likeness, His holiness. Holiness is the most beautiful thing! It is Jesus!

But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.

2 Corinthians 3:18

Called to Enter In

Holiness is not “self-righteousness” that comes from what we do. Holiness comes from who we are as we have been in His Presence! I had a dream where I was looking up at Jesus on the cross on Golgotha. I saw Him hanging there on the cross when suddenly and angel appeared to me and said, “Look!” Immediately I was taken to the veil of the temple and saw it being rent asunder! The way had been made for us to enter into the Most Holy Presence of God and the angel was pleading for people to enter. The point was, why aren’t people entering in?

Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, and having a High Priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.

Hebrews 10:19-23

The way has been made yet people still want to stay outside of that Most Holy Place. So there is a call to enter into the Holiest of All. We have been given the access and now is the time to enter in to the most intimate and Holy place of worship before the Lord.
