Holiness of God
Is the purity and rectitude of his nature. It is an essential attribute of God, and what is the glory, lustre, and harmony of all his other perfections, Psalms 27:4 . Exodus 15:11 . He could not be God without it, Deuteronomy 32:4 . It is infinite and unbounded; it cannot be increased or diminished. Immutable and invariable, Malachi 3:6 . God is originally holy; he is so of and in himself, and the author and promoter of all holiness among his creatures. The holiness of God is visible by his works; he made all things holy, Genesis 1:31 . By his providences, all which are to promote holiness in the end, Hebrews 12:10 . By his grace, which influences the subjects of it to be holy, Titus 2:10; Titus 2:12 . By his word, which commands it, 1 Peter 1:1-25 . By his ordinances, which he hath appointed for that end, Jeremiah 44:4-5 . By the punishment of sin in the death of Christ, Is. 53: and by the eternal punishment of it in wicked men, Matthew 25:1-46 : last verse.
