Revelation 15:3 and 4 - Last Sunday, we focused on God’s holiness and saw that it is the fundamental nature and perhaps the most important quality that separates Yahweh from all others.

Psalm 36:1
No fear of God before his eyes.

Romans 3:9
Jews and Gentiles are all under sin, everyone. Sin is the antithesis--the direct opposite--of holiness and opposition between God and man.

God and His son are commonly used as curse words. Holy men such as Moses and David were excluded from the God’s presence. How much more so the unholy?

- The Jews completely miss the point of the Law, that is every mouth is shut and that all are guilty, “brought to trial,” unanswerable.

We know what sin is because of the Law. Every child should be taught the Ten Commandments so that he or she knows at least the minimum.

First step is acknowledging your unholiness and therefore separation from God. The second step is to accept the reality that you cannot change yourself. The third step is to ask God to help.

The help we find is through our Lord Jesus the Christ. Because of him the sin the separates us from our holy God is dealt with.

5:1 and 2
We now have access to God through him.

Ephesians 2:11-21
All that separated us from God has been taken out of the way.

Ephesian 3:11 and 12
We have access to God.

We were made blameless and holy; now we are to live blameless and holy.

1 Peter 1:13-21
Be ye holy; for I am holy.
