Genesis 6:9-7:16 :: The Beauty of Holiness


How would you describe holiness – both what holiness is and what holiness does?

As King David meditated on the Flood he said, “The LORD sat enthroned at the Flood, and the LORD sits as King forever” (Psalm 29:10), after he exhorted all to, “Worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness” (Psalm 29:2b).

King David understood holiness is what God is. In other words, to define holiness one must define God.

He also understood holiness does what God does. In other words, all of God’s actions are holy.

Proverbs 1:7 states, “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge.”

As you meditate on the Flood, begin by seeking and knowing the nature and character of God.

Understand how holiness reacts to wickedness.

And, understand how the grace of God overcomes wickedness and delivers from death.

This means as you meditate on the Flood you will also need to meditate on the Cross.

Zechariah 14 :: My God Will Come


Here is the final chapter – not only of Zechariah, but also of life as we know it.

For this chapter is all about the “day of the LORD.” This is the day Jesus will descend from heaven and stand on the Mount of Olives. This is the day the LORD of hosts shall be King. This is the day the LORD my God will come.

The description is both painful and blissful. For some, this day causes great panic. For others, this day causes great worship. The difference in reaction is based solely on one’s opinion of Jesus.

To those who regard Him as King, His banner “HOLINESS TO THE LORD” flies over their lives.

To those who reject Him as King, the banner “a Canaanite” flies over their lives.

“The Spirit and the bride say, ‘Come!’ And let him who hears say, ‘Come!’ And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.” (Rev 22:17)
