“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.” ~ Revelation 4:8
As has been noted before in previous posts, these creatures represent God’s true ministry and the better translation for these “four beasts” is “living creatures.” Note that in Isaiah they also cry “holy, holy, holy!”
“In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory. And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.” ~ Isaiah 6:1-4
In both Revelation and Isaiah these living creatures of fire proclaim “holy, holy, holy” three times in recognition of the trinity of God and His complete holiness. Through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ we are made holy, and by the Holy Spirit we have the power to continue to live holy, so that we might show our complete love in holiness to God the Father. As the scriptures also teach us:
“But 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.” ~ 1 Peter 1:15-16
So how does your minister live? Is he or she holy? Does their life show that they have been delivered from their sins through the holy sacrifice of Jesus Christ? Do they show they have the Holy Spirit reigning in their heart by living a consistent holy life. Do they show that they have a holy, heavenly Father by their complete obedience and submission to Him?
“Be ye holy; for I am holy.” ~ 1 Peter 1:16
