People today have no appreciation of who YHVH is and they treat Him as if He is human and He is like us because Jesus became like us and dwelled among us and have eaten with sinners. This makes Him our buddy and our mate and we can have a chat and crack a joke with Him because He lowered Himself and became like us. NO, this is the wrong perspective we have of Him and we degrade Him and do not feel compelled to change when we are in His presence because He changed to become like us. The modern church has perverted the truth and painted a wrong picture of the God we believe in and it is against what Scripture teach us. Because of this misconception, there is no fear of YHVH and no urge to change to become like Him and we live our unchanged lives and tolerate sin and look just like the lost world. YHVH is not your Buddy or your friend or the man upstairs; He is the Almighty Elohim and Awesome Creator of Heaven and Earth and He is HOLY.

YHVH is Pure 
YHVH is pure and morally perfect. Pureness is described in Scripture in Exodus25:11 where they used pure gold to cover the Ark of the Covenant.
Pure 
is the Hebrew word “
tahor 
” that means:
a primitive root; properly, tobe bright; i.e. (by implication) to be pure (physical sound, clear,unadulterated; Levitically, uncontaminated; morally, innocent or holy):--be(make, make self, pronounce) clean, cleanse (self), purge, purify(-ier, self).
Gold is the colour of deity, of a supreme being and has great value.Everything is the Tabernacle was covered with gold to make it pure enough forYHVH’s Presence and Holiness. Everything that is earthly and that is contaminatedby death had to be covered to be brought into the Presence of YHVH. Even thePriests who served in His Temple had to cleanse themselves and had to be pure andnot contaminated with death. Before Y’shua presented Himself to the Father, He toldMary not to touch Him because she was in the grave which made her contaminatedwith death.
YHVH is Morally Perfect 
YHVH is pure and morally perfect and separated form all beingsand all creatures that are not morally perfect. YHVH cannottolerate sin; He cannot even tolerate one sin. Adam and Eveonly had to sin once to be cast out of the presence of YHVH.YHVH has no tolerance that contradicts or opposes His nature.

He is Holy and truly set apart. We have made YHVH so common. Holiness meansthat YHVH is not common, He is not ordinary. He is not casual, He is distinct and Heis not like us and should not be taken lightly. He is Holy and He is YHVH.

In Isa it says that YHVH is Holy, three times, and this emphasize the importance andunderstanding of His Holiness. You will not find anywhere in Scripture that YHVH islove, love love, or grace, grace grace, or that He is nice, nice nice. No, it is only HisHoliness that is expressed in this way and this means that His Holiness is Hisgreatest attribute. He is love and He is gracious, but not to the extent of, or in closecomparison of His Holiness.

YHVH is the High and Lofty One Who inhabits eternity. YHVH is far removed fromman because of man’s iniquity and YHVH was angry with man and hid Himself fromman who followed his own heart. YHVH will restore those who are humble andbroken in spirit and who honour Him for Who He is. YHVH cannot stand sin beforeHim and He turns His Face away from iniquity. People always say that you cannotdescribe YHVH as too Holy and need to bring Him down to our level. If you do that,you have created an idol and it is not the God from Scripture.YHVH lives outside of time and is its Master. He knows the end beforeit even happens and has declared the end in the beginning. He is allknowing and knows what will happen and guide the free will of man torun like a stream in the palm of His Hand.YHVH is High and lifted up above all men and more Holy than youcould imagine, yet you can call Him Father. Through His Son Y’shuathe Messiah He has brought us in closer so that we can directly speakto our Father. Just remember that YHVH is our Father but He is alsoHoly and you should speak to Him and of Him with respect.The Holiness of YHVH transcends any thought or idea of that we have of Holiness. Ittranscends any aspect of what anyone might reflect. What does transcends mean?Transcends mean to fly higher and it has no mate and no running partner or anycompetition or anybody that can come close in comparison to Him. There is nothingthat goes higher than the Holiness of YHVH and no one Holy like YHVH.

YHVH does not trust in His set apart people and compares us to the heavens thatare more glorious than us but yet unclean, how much more are we unclean, we whodrink iniquity like water. We as the set-apart ones are not even close compared toHim regarding Holiness. This is why we need grace to be saved because even theSaints or set-apart ones are far form perfection and Holiness. Does this mean we cansit back and give up because we will never make it? No, He instructed us to be Holyfor He is Holy and because we honour and fear Him we will try to live a life that isHoly because we bear His Name and through respect and love we will try to complyto His standard through the grace and help of His Set Apart Spirit. This is one of thetwo Names of His Spirit, the Set-Apart Spirit Who help us to be sanctified and to liveSet Apart and Holy lives.

YHVH is much more Holy than we are or that we can dream or think. We need torealise this and the only way to do this is to renew our minds with His Word that canhelp us to become closer to the mark, being sanctified.
The Name of YHVH is Holy 
YHVH’s Name is not common, it is Holy. Christians today use the Name of Jesus tosell their goods, their T-Shirts and their accessories. They use the name that isabove all other Names and market it. If they honoured His Name they would havekept it Holy and not profane it. I am glad that the Name Y’shua and YHVH is not usedcommercially and I think it is ‘hidden’ from the masses not to profane it as well. TheOrthodox Jews refuse to even pronounce His Y-H-V-H Name because they respectand fear him.His YHVH Name is the Name He gave to Moses when the people asked Who He is.It means, “I Am that I Am. He compares Himself with himself because there is noother that can be compared to Him. He is at such a high standard and stature. HisName is Holy and Awesome. Do you know what awesome means?

Awesome 
is the Hebrew word “yare” that means - 
to strike with fear 
 
and reverence 
; to influence by fear,
terror 
or respect; as, His majesty awed them into silence.
The fear of YHVH is in His Name and His Name causes the universe totremble with fear. It is not only a reverence but also a terrible fear andterror that will strike you if you are in the presence of YHVH, a fear thatwill make your knees nock and your teeth clatter. We should show thatfear and respect for His Name whenever we hear it or use it. Do notconnect anything that is not from Him to His Name or use His Name andhave a characteristic that is not in line with His Character because youwill break the Third Commandment by taking His Name in vain.
