What does it mean when we say that God is holy? This is the Bible Minute.
Isaiah had never seen anything like it. Before him was the Lord seated in all majesty and might surrounded by angels. He described the scene in Isaiah chapter 6.
"In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord seated on a throne, high and exalted, and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him were seraphs, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. And they were calling to one another: 'Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.'" (Isaiah 6:1-3)
That's the realization that prompts our need for a Savior. Jesus turns our cry of despair--I am ruined!--to the glorious proclamation--I am redeemed!
