Bible Dictionary: Define Holy & Holiness, Definition of Holy & Holiness


Holiness is the same as sanctification.  To sanctify is to make holy.  Holiness is a setting apart for a specific use.  For followers of Christ, they are following Christ into holiness and redemption (freedom from sin).  This is salvation, and it is the same as knowing God.  In fact, only God is holy.  This holiness is actually the answer to the prayer of Jesus, that they may all be one, just as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You, that they also may be one in Us, so the world may believe.  So, when Scripture is referring to a person or object or day being holy, it is only holy to the extent that it is in unity with God, a unity that we can hardly begin to imagine.  It is the ultimate intimate relationship with God.  This word, relationship, cannot fully describe the depth of the way that we will be joined to God and transfigured from glory to glory into the very likeness of Christ and unified with Christ in submission to Him.  We cannot be saved from sin and to holiness and redemption by human effort.  We are saved by grace through faith and that faith is not of ourselves lest anyone should boast.  This is the faith of God, and it is a gift from God.  Faith comes when God speaks: faith comes by hearing and hearing by the utterance of God.  Rom. 10:17  Whatever is not of faith is sin.  God leads.  God speaks.  Whatever we do that God didn't tell us to do is sin.  Rom. 14:23  Whenever we receive this faith, we also receive hope, that vision of expectation in which God shows us what He is going to do and who we are in Him.  He shows us how we fit into Christ the Body and what is and is not part of that Body.  This is an unfolding revelation over time.  1 Cor. 3:18

(some caveats about hearing God's Voice)

Scripture tells us that faith gives us access to grace.  Rom. 5:2  And it is grace that does God's works through us.  1 Cor. 15:10  Only God is able to do good works.  Our part is to yield the members of our bodies to Him.  The love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost.  When we hear God's voice, sense His leading and yield ourselves so that He does His works through us, His Love (God is Love) flows through us in our thoughts, words, and deeds.  This is what is known as righteousness, righteousness by grace through faith.  You reap what you sow.  When you yield in this way to the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit changes you in your very nature.  This change is what is known as holiness or sanctification.  Righteousness is in the moment--from moment to moment.  It is God doing His works through you.  Holiness is something that everyone who follows Christ is becoming.  They are becoming a new creature.  They are dying to self and Christ is being more fully formed in them.  The battle is currently for the mind, and it is in the mind that we struggle.  Each time we yield to the Holy Spirit in this way, we become more holy.  It is a walk from glory to glory and a walk that requires patience.  Each time we become more holy, we are set free, that is, redeemed, to a greater extent.  Set free or saved from what?  Redeemed from sin--we are redeemed from slavery.  We are naturally in slavery to Satan, to our own fleshly nature, and to the pressure exerted by the ungodly culture.

Not that this holiness (along with the righteousness and redemption) cannot be separated from Christ the Body.  God is cleansing His Body of all the false ministries, false teachers, false prophets, divisions, man-made patterns, faulty doctrine, and other disorders as He establishes a Church, a called out people, who are willing to walk in His ways and to build the Church according to His pattern.  All who move from glory to glory find that God is leading them toward the Scriptural order of the Church.  They find themselves checked every time they deny God's power to restore His order, His pattern, His miracles, His close leading and directing of the Church, and His Holiness in the Church.  He is going to return for a Church that is without spot or wrinkle.  There will be no strife, division, money-making scheme, power grabbing, pride, or bickering.

Re 22:6  And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy <40> prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.

Re 22:11  He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy <40>, let him be holy still.

Re 22:19  And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy <40> city, and from the things which are written in this book.

Romans 6:16-19 Don't you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey--whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness? But thanks be to God that, though you used to be slaves to sin, you have come to obey from your heart the pattern of teaching that has now claimed your allegiance. You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness. I am using an example from everyday life because of your human limitations. Just as you used to offer yourselves as slaves to impurity and to ever-increasing wickedness, so now offer yourselves as slaves to righteousness leading to holiness.

Mt 6:9  After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be <37> thy name.

Ac 20:32  And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified <37>.

Ac 26:18  To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified <37> by faith that is in me.

Ro 15:16  That I should be the minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering up of the Gentiles might be acceptable, being sanctified <37> by the Holy Ghost.

2Ti 2:21  If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified <37>, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.

Heb 2:11  For both he that sanctifieth <37> and they who are sanctified <37> are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,

Heb 9:13  For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth <37> to the purifying of the flesh:

Heb 10:10  By the which will we are sanctified <37> through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

Heb 10:14  For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified <37>.

Heb 10:29  Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified <37>, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?

Heb 13:12  Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify <37> the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate.

1Pe 3:15  But sanctify <37> the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:

Jude 1:1  Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified <37> by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called:

Re 22:11  He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy <37> still.

Ro 6:19  I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness <38>.

Ro 6:22  But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness <38>, and the end everlasting life.

1Co 1:30  But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification <38>, and redemption:

1Th 4:3  For this is the will of God, even your sanctification <38>, that ye should abstain from fornication:

1Th 4:4  That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification <38> and honour;

1Th 4:7  For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness <38>.

2Th 2:13  But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification <38> of the Spirit and belief of the truth:

Heb 8:2  A minister of the sanctuary <39>, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.

Heb 9:1  Then verily the first covenant had also ordinances of divine service, and a worldly sanctuary <39>.

Heb 9:2  For there was a tabernacle made; the first, wherein was the candlestick, and the table, and the shewbread; which is called the sanctuary <39>.

Heb 9:3  And after the second veil, the tabernacle which is called the Holiest of all <39> <39>;

Heb 9:8  The Holy Ghost this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all <39> was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing:

Heb 9:12  Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place <39>, having obtained eternal redemption for us.

Heb 9:24  For Christ is not entered into the holy places <39> made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:

Heb 9:25  Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place <39> every year with blood of others;

Heb 10:19  Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest <39> by the blood of Jesus,

Heb 13:11  For the bodies of those beasts, whose blood is brought into the sanctuary <39> by the high priest for sin, are burned without the camp.

Ac 2:27  Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One <3741> to see corruption.

Ac 13:34  And as concerning that he raised him up from the dead, now no more to return to corruption, he said on this wise, I will give you the sure mercies <3741> of David.

Ac 13:35  Wherefore he saith also in another psalm, Thou shalt not suffer thine Holy One <3741> to see corruption.

1Ti 2:8  I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy <3741> hands, without wrath and doubting.

Tit 1:8  But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy <3741>, temperate;

Heb 7:26  For such an high priest became us, who is holy <3741>, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;

Re 15:4  Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy <3741>: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.

Re 16:5  And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be <3741>, because thou hast judged thus.

Php 4:8  Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest <4586>, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

1Ti 3:8  Likewise must the deacons be grave <4586>, not doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre;

1Ti 3:11  Even so must their wives be grave <4586>, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things.

Tit 2:2  That the aged men be sober, grave <4586>, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience.

1Co 9:13  Do ye not know that they which minister about holy things <2413> live of the things of the temple? and they which wait at the altar are partakers with the altar?

2Ti 3:15  And that from a child thou hast known the holy <2413> scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

Mt 12:5  Or have ye not read in the law, how that on the sabbath days the priests in the temple <2411> profane the sabbath, and are blameless?

Mt 24:1  And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple <2411>: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple <2411>.

Mr 11:11  And Jesus entered into Jerusalem, and into the temple <2411>: and when he had looked round about upon all things, and now the eventide was come, he went out unto Bethany with the twelve.

Mr 11:15  And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple <2411>, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple <2411>, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves;

Mr 11:16  And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple <2411>.

Mr 11:27  And they come again to Jerusalem: and as he was walking in the temple <2411>, there come to him the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders,

Mr 12:35  And Jesus answered and said, while he taught in the temple <2411>, How say the scribes that Christ is the Son of David?

Mr 13:1  And as he went out of the temple <2411>, one of his disciples saith unto him, Master, see what manner of stones and what buildings are here!

Mr 13:3  And as he sat upon the mount of Olives over against the temple <2411>, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately,

Mr 14:49  I was daily with you in the temple <2411> teaching, and ye took me not: but the scriptures must be fulfilled.

Lu 2:27  And he came by the Spirit into the temple <2411>: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law,

Lu 20:1  And it came to pass, that on one of those days, as he taught the people in the temple <2411>, and preached the gospel, the chief priests and the scribes came upon him with the elders,

Lu 21:5  And as some spake of the temple <2411>, how it was adorned with goodly stones and gifts, he said,

Lu 21:37  And in the day time he was teaching in the temple <2411>; and at night he went out, and abode in the mount that is called the mount of Olives.

Lu 21:38  And all the people came early in the morning to him in the temple <2411>, for to hear him.

Lu 22:52  Then Jesus said unto the chief priests, and captains of the temple <2411>, and the elders, which were come to him, Be ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and staves?

Lu 22:53  When I was daily with you in the temple <2411>, ye stretched forth no hands against me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.

Lu 24:53  And were continually in the temple <2411>, praising and blessing God. Amen.

Joh 2:14  And found in the temple <2411> those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting:

Joh 2:15  And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple <2411>, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew the tables;

Joh 5:14  Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple <2411>, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.

Joh 7:14  Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple <2411>, and taught.

Joh 7:28  Then cried Jesus in the temple <2411> as he taught, saying, Ye both know me, and ye know whence I am: and I am not come of myself, but he that sent me is true, whom ye know not.

Joh 8:2  And early in the morning he came again into the temple <2411>, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.

Joh 8:20  These words spake Jesus in the treasury, as he taught in the temple <2411>: and no man laid hands on him; for his hour was not yet come.

Joh 8:59  Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple <2411>, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.

Joh 10:23  And Jesus walked in the temple <2411> in Solomon’s porch.

Joh 11:56  Then sought they for Jesus, and spake among themselves, as they stood in the temple <2411>, What think ye, that he will not come to the feast?

Joh 18:20  Jesus answered him, I spake openly to the world; I ever taught in the synagogue, and in the temple <2411>, whither the Jews always resort; and in secret have I said nothing.

Ac 2:46  And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple <2411>, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,

Ac 3:1  Now Peter and John went up together into the temple <2411> at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour.

Ac 3:2  And a certain man lame from his mother’s womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple <2411> which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple <2411>;

Ac 3:3  Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple <2411> asked an alms.

Ac 3:8  And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple <2411>, walking, and leaping, and praising God.

Ac 3:10  And they knew that it was he which sat for alms at the Beautiful gate of the temple <2411>: and they were filled with wonder and amazement at that which had happened unto him.

Ac 4:1  And as they spake unto the people, the priests, and the captain of the temple <2411>, and the Sadducees, came upon them,

Ac 5:20  Go, stand and speak in the temple <2411> to the people all the words of this life.

Ac 5:21  And when they heard that, they entered into the temple <2411> early in the morning, and taught. But the high priest came, and they that were with him, and called the council together, and all the senate of the children of Israel, and sent to the prison to have them brought.

Ac 5:24  Now when the high priest and the captain of the temple <2411> and the chief priests heard these things, they doubted of them whereunto this would grow.

Ac 5:25  Then came one and told them, saying, Behold, the men whom ye put in prison are standing in the temple <2411>, and teaching the people.

Ac 5:42  And daily in the temple <2411>, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.

Ac 19:27  So that not only this our craft is in danger to be set at nought; but also that the temple <2411> of the great goddess Diana should be despised, and her magnificence should be destroyed, whom all Asia and the world worshippeth.

Ac 21:26  Then Paul took the men, and the next day purifying himself with them entered into the temple <2411>, to signify the accomplishment of the days of purification, until that an offering should be offered for every one of them.

Ac 21:28  Crying out, Men of Israel, help: This is the man, that teacheth all men every where against the people, and the law, and this place: and further brought Greeks also into the temple <2411>, and hath polluted this holy place.

Ac 21:29  (For they had seen before with him in the city Trophimus an Ephesian, whom they supposed that Paul had brought into the temple <2411>.)

Ac 21:30  And all the city was moved, and the people ran together: and they took Paul, and drew him out of the temple <2411>: and forthwith the doors were shut.

Ac 22:17  And it came to pass, that, when I was come again to Jerusalem, even while I prayed in the temple <2411>, I was in a trance;

Ac 24:6  Who also hath gone about to profane the temple <2411>: whom we took, and would have judged according to our law.

Ac 24:12  And they neither found me in the temple <2411> disputing with any man, neither raising up the people, neither in the synagogues, nor in the city:

Ac 24:18  Whereupon certain Jews from Asia found me purified in the temple <2411>, neither with multitude, nor with tumult.

Ac 25:8  While he answered for himself, Neither against the law of the Jews, neither against the temple <2411>, nor yet against Caesar, have I offended any thing at all.

Ac 26:21  For these causes the Jews caught me in the temple <2411>, and went about to kill me.

1Co 9:13  Do ye not know that they which minister about holy things live of the things of the temple <2411>? and they which wait at the altar are partakers with the altar?
