Dictionaries Change, God Doesn’t

Revelation 4:8

 And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.

Exodus 3:5And He said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.

  • devout
  • godly
  • pious
  • religious
  • sainted
  • saintly

This is the definition of holy, according to https://www.merriam-webster.com/.

  Can you see the degradation this has made over the years, from something so precious, to a common term?  “Awesome” was another such word reserved for a description of our Creator, now used when discussing a new car, an athlete, an event or just anything really.

In the past, the people found themselves unworthy to speak God’s Name; over time, however, our Lord’s Name has been reduced to a curse word.

How I long for the day, promised, when all will acknowledge holy, holy, holy is God Who Was, Is and Is to Come! True holiness will be forever defined as it should be!

Philippians 2:9-11

Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

God our Loving Father and King

Holy, Holy, Holy Are You

Please forgive our sins

Thank You for this day You have made

Please let us appreciate each breath as a gift from You

Let us take opportunities to share Your Truth, The Truth, With others

Let, please our words and actions please and glorify You

In the Precious Name of Jesus

First, and most importantly, I love Jesus Christ and I trust in Him as my Lord and Savior. I was raised in a Christian home by a godly dad and mom (who planned and had me in July before turning 42 in August), and 5 older siblings. My father passed away when I was 7 and my mother (who went to be with the Lord in 2005 at 81) never remarried. As a child, I was bullied at school, so I did not have many friends. I didn't want to tell my mom this because I knew she had enough worry being a widow at 50. I know what it is like to be lonely. As an adult, God showed me the value of His Friendship and has blessed me, too, with rich relationships with dear friends who also love the Lord. My husband and I (married 31 years as of 2020), have three wonderful, adult children and son-in-law as well as three darling grandchildren. Along with many others, my husband lost his job, but we refuse to be fearful or angry. The Lord has provided for us and we are so thankful for the opportunity to express gratitude through personal contact and occasional memories I share through writing. I believe the Lord has given me a venue to engage with others and a means to share His Word. Thank you for checking out my page. I hope you enjoy what you read. If there is anything positive or insightful in the devotionals (NOT CALLING MY WRITING "INSPIRED" by any means!), I give all credit and glory to Jesus Christ! On the other side of that, when something makes no sense, that's all me
