Praise the beauty of Holiness! When the world around us rages out of control, our soul is full of singing and praise for the beauty of Holiness. We are set apart from the turbulence of the world, set apart from the nonsense of sin, and set apart from the evil spirit that exists in the world. When looking at the ugliness within the world, it is easy to appreciate the contrast within the beauty of Holiness. The beauty of Holiness is our victory over the battles in this life. Victory comes within the soul, spirit, and mind and that is where the beauty of Holiness exists.
Ugliness comes through hatred of the Living God, spurred on by the modern technological god that sets itself up as god in the Temple of God, our body. Ugly, ugly, ugly is the persecution of the Children of God, but we praise the beauty of Holiness. Whatever comes our way, the victory over the battle is in our heart, soul, and mind and the Spirit of Holiness is beautiful! Thank you Jesus for making that Holiness possible by your sacrifice on the Cross. The more beautiful the Spirit of Holiness shines in our character, the greater will be the disrespect, hatred, and disparagement for the Children of God. The Light of Holiness shining in this world angers those seeking to destroy God, the Son, and the Holy Ghost because that Light reveals and condemns their evil and sinful nature. Those of this world lives by the flesh and serves Satan with an intent to not rest from tormenting the Children of God until the Temple of God belongs to the god of this technological age. Even so, we have the victory, we have the victory, we have the victory….praise the beauty of Holiness. We rest in what Christ Jesus did for us at the Cross and His Spirit of Holiness lives in us! Christ is the authority of righteous living and is the Master within the Temple of God. Ugliness multiplied by ugliness is seen in this world by disrespect for every type of authority…EVERY TYPE…parents, law enforcement, government leaders, teachers, employers, etc. BUT, victory is in the Spirit of Holiness…praise the beauty of Holiness!
People brutally hurt one another mentally, physically, and emotionally because their heart and mind is filled with pain, turmoil, and conflict from an unholy and Godless world. But, God’s peace, love, compassion, faithfulness, mercy, and perseverance fills the heart and mind of those accepting what Christ did for us on the Cross. Amidst the raging battle we have calm amidst the storm and the victory is ours over the world. Holiness sets us apart from the sinful nature of this raging world…praise the beauty of Holiness! The Church attempts to gather people in the name of Christ, but within those Church walls there is not a word spoken about what Christ did for us on the Cross. The Children of God are not accepted for believing in their heart and confessing with their mouth that Jesus is Lord. Satan seeks to steal, kill, and destroy all Goodness within the Temple of God to eliminate the Light that shines within the Spirit of Holiness. The Light of Holiness reveals and condemns social injustices brought on by the lust for power of the modern technological god. Lies abound in this godless age with Satan being the accuser…battles rage over God’s Truth and the lies of the world seeking to destroy the Kingdom of God. Those who know the Truth, and that Truth is a Person named Jesus Christ, knows the victory within the beauty of Holiness. People who follow the ways of the world, the flesh, and Satan covet all the things of this earth. But those born from the Cross of Christ are free from worldly bondage because of the Spirit of Holiness.
“It is no longer I that lives, but Christ who lives in me!” That is the beauty of Holiness, Christ living in us. How does Christ enter into our soul, spirit, and mind? That is the purpose for His sacrifice on the Cross. We were in Him when He was crucified, meaning our sin is nailed to the Cross with Him. We were in Him when He was buried in the grave, meaning we are dead to sin. The sin nature no longer has dominion over us, Hallelujah! We were in Him when God resurrected Him from the grave, meaning that we experience the resurrection of Spirit. In that Resurrection, the Spirit of the Son lives in us and that is the Spirit of Holiness. The battles raging in this world have all been won on the Cross of Christ and through his Resurrection! The Holy Ghost lives in us and works powerfully for us…praise the beauty of Holiness! Believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord…then sing…worship….and praise the beauty of Holiness.
“And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed singers unto the Lord, and that should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, Praise the Lord; for his mercy endures for ever. And when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten.”
2 Chronicles 20:21-22
