O worship the Lord

in the beauty of

HOLINESS:

Worship is Love expressed with abandon

in appreciation for mercy received.

Holiness is the state of belonging exclusively to God,

set apart from the world for His service and

for His worship alone.

Exodus 28:36

And you shall make a plate of pure gold,

and engrave upon it,

like the engraving of a signet,

HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD.

A golden plate was fixed on Aaron, the High Priest’s

head, engraven with the words “Holiness to the LORD.”

Aaron was hereby reminded that God is holy, and that His

priests must be holy, devoted to the Lord.  This must appear in

their forehead, in open profession of their relation to God.

It must be engraven like the engravings of a signet;

deep and durable; not painted so as to be washed off,

but firm and lasting; such must our holiness to the Lord be.

Christ is our High Priest; through Him sins are forgiven us,

and not laid to our charge. Our persons, our doings are

pleasing to God upon the account of Christ.

~Matthew Henry

The garments of the High Priest were for glory and beauty,

representing the beauty of the life separated unto God.  (Exodus 28:2)

Jesus is our High Priest

Hebrews 4:14

 Seeing then that we have a great High Priest,

that is passed into the heavens,

Jesus the Son of God,

let us hold fast our profession.

Every Child of God has been made part of the Priesthood

By the Lord –

I Peter 2:5

Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a Spiritual House,

an Holy Priesthood,

to offer up spiritual sacrifices,

acceptable to God

by Jesus Christ.

I Peter 2:9

But ye are a Chosen Generation,

an Holy Priesthood,

an Holy Nation,

a Peculiar People;

that ye should show forth the praises of Him

Who hath called you out of darkness into His marvellous Light:

 

Revelation 5:10

And hast made us unto our God

Kings and Priests

and we shall reign on the earth.

We worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness;

a holy mindset

a holy attitude

 purity that comes from within;

~

So- beauty armed with virtue arms the soul with

a commanding but sweet control.
