God’s True Character Revealed

(Have the Goodie read to you!)

Christendom misrepresents God to mankind as a harsh, stern, angry “god,” full of wrath. This is the byproduct of the religious system’s faulty estimation of God’s holiness. We’ve been seriously misled as to the true nature of our Creator.

When the choir of Israel sang the praises of God, it is quite interesting to note what they specifically magnified about Him:

… He appointed singers unto the Lord … that they should praise THE BEAUTY OF HOLINESS … (II Chronicles 20:21).

To demonstrate THE BEAUTY OF HIS HOLINESS, here is what they actually sang:

… Praise the Lord; FOR HIS MERCY ENDURES FOR THE AGES (II Chronicles 20:21).

The religious system would lead us to believe that the holiness of God overflows with sternest severity, anger and wrath; but when the choir of Israel sang the praises of God’s holiness, they specifically sang about His enduring MERCY. This is contrary to religious thinking.

The holiness of God actually overflows with kindness, compassion, love, gentleness and mercy! We learn this clearly within the context of our passage: God’s holiness is associated with Divine mercy. We can also see this from others passages of Scripture (cf. Isaiah 57:15-16; Hosea 11:9).

Why would God not execute the fierceness of His anger? The verse tells us why: because He is not man, He is “the Holy One!” God’s holiness is predominantly connected with His Saviorhood! He is the compassionate and loving Savior because of His holiness … not in spite of it!

For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, YOUR SAVIOR … (Isaiah 43:3).

This is the scriptural view of the true and living God! He is Holy … He is merciful … and He is the Savior!
