"My words are Spirit and Life, and not to be weighed by the understanding of man. They are not to be drawn forth for vain approbation, but to be heard in silence, and to be received with all humility and great affection."

"The Lord gave the word:
great was the company of
those that published it."

Psalm 68:11

A true revival means nothing
less than a revolution,
casting out the spirit
of worldliness,
making God's love
triumph in the heart.

"For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness."   1 Thessalonians 4:7

"Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:"   Hebrews 12:14

"And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness."   Ephesians 4:24

The Holiness of God   by Thomas Watson
He is holy in his nature; his very being is made up of holiness, as light is of the essence of the sun. He is holy in his Word. The Word bears a stamp of his holiness upon it, as the wax bears an impression of the seal. 'Thy Word is very pure.' It is compared to silver refined seven times. Psa xii 6. Every line in the Word breathes sanctity, it encourages nothing but holiness.

The God of Holiness   Unknown Author
There is in the human conscience the conviction that God is a God of holiness. But the highest and clearest views of the Divine holiness cherished by the unrenewed mind, in consequence of the sinfulness and darkness of the mind, fall infinitely short of what God is as the God of holiness.

Holiness (Book)   by J. C. Ryle
J. C. Ryle (1816-1900) This volume is considered the best book on the Christian life that has Ever been written.

The Holiness of God   by Arthur W. Pink
The best that sinful man brings forth is defiled. A corrupt tree cannot bear good fruit. But blessed be His name, that which His holiness demanded His grace has provided in Christ Jesus our Lord. Every poor sinner who has fled to Him for refuge stands "accepted in the Beloved". Hallelujah!

The Way Of Holiness   by Samuel Logan Brengle
A holy person is like God. Not that he is infinite as God is; he does not know everything; he has not all power and wisdom as God has; but he is like God in his nature. He is good and pure, and loving and just, in the same way that God is. Holiness, then, is conformity to the nature of God. It is likeness to God, as He is revealed in Jesus.

God's Way of Holiness   by Horatius Bonar
The way of peace and the way of holiness lie side by side, or rather, they are one. That which bestows the one imparts the other; and he who takes the one takes the other also. The Spirit of peace is the Spirit of holiness. The God of peace is the God of holiness.

Why Should We Be Holy?   by Samuel Logan Brengle
We should be holy because God wants us to be holy. He commands it. He says, 'As He which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation: because it is written, Be ye holy, for I am holy.' God is in earnest about this. It is God's will, and it cannot be evaded.

The Way of Holiness   by Jonathan Edwards
"And an highway shall be there, and it shall be called the way o holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it, but it shall be for those the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein. No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there."

Holiness Essential to Salvation   by Charles. G. Finney
Before hope can be cherished, the conditions of salvation must be fulfilled: you will never be saved at all unless you are saved from sin, mind that! You must become holy in order to become happy. Fulfill the conditions; become holy, and then your peace shall flow like a river. Give up your sins, give your heart to God, and rely upon it that the peace which passeth all understanding shall rule in your hearts.

The Holy of Holies   by John Hames
'And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.' Here is something more than writing His laws in our hearts. It is Christ Himself coming to dwell there by the Holy Spirit, causing us to be Christ-like, holy, and heavenly minded. The best that man can do by his most strenuous efforts is but failure. It is God that worketh in us to will and to do.

A Serious Call To A Devout And Holy Life   by William Law
If therefore our relation to God be our greatest relation, if our advancement in His favour be our highest advancement, he that has the highest notions of the excellence of this relation, he that most strongly perceives the highest worth, and great value of holiness and virtue, that judges everything little, when compared with it, proves himself to be master of the best and most excellent knowledge.

Called with an Holy Calling   by Robert Murray M'Cheyne
But all who are in Christ have received the inward call. All, who like Timothy, have "unfeigned faith", and have received "the Spirit of power, and of love, and of a sound mind", have been "saved and called with a holy calling". This is the work of the Holy Spirit; and therefore it is called a holy calling. It is the call of the unseen Almighty Spirit who sweetly inclines the will, and melts the heart of the sinner.

Holiness   by Andrew Murray
Not only has God chosen and called us for salvation, but also for holiness salvation in holiness. The goal of the young Christian must not only be safety in Christ, but also holiness in Christ. Safety and salvation are, in the long run, found only in holiness. The Christian who thinks that his salvation consists merely in safety and not in holiness will find himself deceived.

Holiness   by J. C. Ryle
I have had a deep conviction for many years that practical holiness and entire self-consecration to God are not sufficiently attended to by modern Christians in this country. Politics, or controversy, or party-spirit, or worldliness, have eaten out the heart of lively piety in too many of us. The subject of personal godliness has fallen sadly into the background.

Maintaining The Holiness Standard   by Samuel Logan Brengle
The Salvation Army was born, not in a cloister, nor in a drawing room, but on a spiritual battlefield, at the penitent-form. It has been nourished for spiritual conquests, not upon speculative doctrines and fine-spun verbal distinctions, but upon those great doctrines... One of The Army's central doctrines and most valued and precious experiences is that of Heart Holiness.

"Holy, Holy, Holy"

Reginald Heber (1783-1826)

Words:   Reginald Heber, 1826 Shropshire, England.
Music:   John B. Dykes, 1861

Holy, Holy, Holy

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our song shall rise to Thee;
Holy, holy, holy, merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!

Holy, holy, holy! All the saints adore Thee,
Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;
Cherubim and seraphim falling down before Thee,
Who was, and is, and evermore shall be.

Holy, holy, holy! though the darkness hide Thee,
Though the eye of sinful man Thy glory may not see;
Only Thou art holy; there is none beside Thee,
Perfect in power, in love, and purity.

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
All Thy works shall praise Thy Name, in earth, and sky, and sea;
Holy, holy, holy; merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!
