This study is inspired by a sermon of Paul Washer. 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 Exodus
25:11 where they used pure gold to cover the Ark of the Covenant.
Pure is the Hebrew word “tahor” that means: a primitive root; properly, to
be 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 for
YHVH’s Presence and Holiness. Everything that is earthly and that is contaminated
by death had to be covered to be brought into the Presence of YHVH. Even the
Priests who served in His Temple had to cleanse themselves and had to be pure and
not contaminated with death. Before Y’shua presented Himself to the Father, He told
Mary not to touch Him because she was in the grave which made her contaminated
YHVH is Morally Perfect
YHVH is pure and morally perfect and separated form all beings
and all creatures that are not morally perfect. YHVH cannot
tolerate sin; He cannot even tolerate one sin. Adam and Eve
only 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 means
that YHVH is not common, He is not ordinary. He is not casual, He is distinct and He
is not like us and should not be taken lightly. He is Holy and He is YHVH.
1so o:g And one cried to onother, ond soid, Holg, Holg, Holg, is
YHVHh o[ Hosts: the uhole eorth [ull o[ His glorg.
In Isa it says that YHVH is Holy, three times, and this emphasize the importance and
understanding of His Holiness. You will not find anywhere in Scripture that YHVH is
love, love love, or grace, grace grace, or that He is nice, nice nice. No, it is only His
Holiness that is expressed in this way and this means that His Holiness is His
greatest attribute. He is love and He is gracious, but not to the extent of, or in close
comparison of His Holiness.
1so g¬:1g-1¬ 1or so sogs the high ond lo[tg One uho inhohits eternitg:
uhose Nome is Holg: 1 duell in the high ond holg ploce, eoen uith the
contrite ond humhle spirit, to reoioe the spirit o[ the humhle, ond to

cooetousness 1 uos ongrg ond struck him: 1 hid Mgsel[, ond uos
ongrg, ond he uent on turning ouog in the uog o[ his heort.
YHVH is the High and Lofty One Who inhabits eternity. YHVH is far removed from
man because of man’s iniquity and YHVH was angry with man and hid Himself from
man who followed his own heart. YHVH will restore those who are humble and
broken in spirit and who honour Him for Who He is. YHVH cannot stand sin before
Him and He turns His Face away from iniquity. People always say that you cannot
describe 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 before
it even happens and has declared the end in the beginning. He is all
knowing and knows what will happen and guide the free will of man to
run like a stream in the palm of His Hand.
YHVH is High and lifted up above all men and more Holy than you
could imagine, yet you can call Him Father. Through His Son Y’shua
the Messiah He has brought us in closer so that we can directly speak
to our Father. Just remember that YHVH is our Father but He is also
Holy 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. It
transcends 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 any
competition or anybody that can come close in comparison to Him. There is nothing
that goes higher than the Holiness of YHVH and no one Holy like YHVH.
Joh 1g:1a-1o Whot is mon, thot he should he cleon? And uhot is he
horn o[ o uomon thot he should he righteous? (:=) Behold, He puts
no trust in His soints: geo, the heooens ore not cleon in His sight. (:ó)
Hou much more hote[ul ond corrupt is mon, uho drinks iniquitg like
YHVH does not trust in His set apart people and compares us to the heavens that
are more glorious than us but yet unclean, how much more are we unclean, we who
drink iniquity like water. We as the set-apart ones are not even close compared to
Him regarding Holiness. This is why we need grace to be saved because even the
Saints or set-apart ones are far form perfection and Holiness. Does this mean we can
sit back and give up because we will never make it? No, He instructed us to be Holy
for He is Holy and because we honour and fear Him we will try to live a life that is
Holy because we bear His Name and through respect and love we will try to comply
to His standard through the grace and help of His Set Apart Spirit. This is one of the
two Names of His Spirit, the Set-Apart Spirit Who help us to be sanctified and to live
Set Apart and Holy lives.
Rom 1g:1o thot 1 should he the minister o[ Y'shuo the Messioh to the
notions, ministering the gospel o[ Elohim, so thot the o[[ering up o[
the notions might he occeptohle, heing soncti[ied hg the Holg Spirit.
YHVH is much more Holy than we are or that we can dream or think. We need to
realise this and the only way to do this is to renew our minds with His Word that can
help 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 to
sell their goods, their T-Shirts and their accessories. They use the name that is
above all other Names and market it. If they honoured His Name they would have
kept it Holy and not profane it. I am glad that the Name Y’shua and YHVH is not used
commercially and I think it is ‘hidden’ from the masses not to profane it as well. The
Orthodox Jews refuse to even pronounce His Y-H-V-H Name because they respect
and 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 no
other that can be compared to Him. He is at such a high standard and stature. His
Name is Holy and Awesome. Do you know what awesome means?
Pso 111:o He sent redemption to His people: He hos commonded His
cooenont [oreoer: HOLY ond AWESOME is His Nome.
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 to
tremble with fear. It is not only a reverence but also a terrible fear and
terror that will strike you if you are in the presence of YHVH, a fear that
will make your knees nock and your teeth clatter. We should show that
fear and respect for His Name whenever we hear it or use it. Do not
connect anything that is not from Him to His Name or use His Name and
have a characteristic that is not in line with His Character because you
will break the Third Commandment by taking His Name in vain.
Exo zo:¬ You sholl not toke the nome o[ YHVH gour Elohim
in ooin. 1or YHVH uill not hold him guiltless thot tokes His Nome in
Vain is the Hebrew word “shav” that means - the sense of desolating; evil (as
destructive), literally (ruin) or morally (especially guile); figuratively idolatry (as
false, subjectively), uselessness (as deceptive, objectively; also adverbially in
vain): - false (-ly), lie, lying, vain, vanity.
You shall not connect anything that is evil, perverse, destructive, immoral, useless or
false to His Name, if you do this, you will not go unpunished. His Word describes His
Character and His Word and His Ways should also be treated with the same respect
as you would His Name. If you proclaim His Name, you should see to it that you are
worthy of connecting yourself to His Name so that you will not profane it by calling
yourself a follower of Him but living a life that is unholy and profane. YHVH’s Name is
His Character and to profane His Name is to profane His Character. Rather not say
that you are a follower of Him if you choose not be like Him. He said in His Word that
we should be Holy (Set Apart) for He is Holy (set-Apart).
1Pe 1:1a-1o os ohedient children, not [oshioning gourseloes
occording to the [ormer lusts in gour ignoronce, (:=) hut occording
to the Holg One uho hos colled gou, gou olso hecome holg in oll
conduct, (:ó) hecouse it is uritten, "BE HOLY, [or 1 AM HOLY."
If you say that you follow Him, you should be as He is, Holy and set apart from this
world and the lusts of the flesh. If you live your life without repentance and change,
you will profane His Name.
YHVH is Light
Pureness also means ‘to shine’; YHVH is light and there is no darkness in Him.
Darkness is the absence of light and that is why there is no darkness in Him,
because He is the source of all light.
Light is the Hebrew word “ore” - from 215; flame; hence (in the
plural) the East (as being the region of light):--fire, light. See also
Light and flame are synonym and the source of YHVH’s light is the
fire of His Holiness, His consuming attributes that radiates His Light
into the universe. Light is also a symbol of Truth. When He says in
that there is no darkness in Him that also implies that there is no lie in
YHVH is Truth
Truth is the highest form of reality and it is like being in a room with a very bright light
that reveals everything. If there is no light, you will not know what is in the room and
someone can tell you there are things that are not and you would not have the
means to tell the difference. But when you switch on the light, everything will be
revealed and you will see it as it is. In the same way YHVH reveals everything to us
through His Word, switching on clusters of light until He will reveal everything one
day with Himself, the source of all light and Truth.
Truth is the Hebrew word “emeth” that means -stability; (figuratively) certainty,
truth, trustworthiness:--assured(-ly), establishment, faithful, right, sure, true (-ly, -th),
Truth brings stability. Truth is the only thing you can build your faith upon because it
will not change. Lies will change and as YHVH reveals His Truth, the lies will
disappear and be replaced with the Truth. This is why you will not have stability in
your life is you believe a lie, not only is it bound to change, but it also has
consequences that bear the fruit seen in unstable people. If you are tossed in the
waves, unstable in your beliefs and ways, you do not have the truth. YHVH has
designed Truth to bring stability. When He created everything He said; let there be
light, and there was light or stability to build/create upon. Prior to these Words, the
earth was empty and void and chaos reigned in the absence of YHVH’s Word of
Structure and Truth and Light. His Words are Truth and brings Light and Stability, as
was done in the Creation of the Earth, so it will do in your Life.
YHVH created everything by speaking Words. If you take clay and you want to make
something, you must ‘structure’ is according to the picture and plan you have in your
mind. In the same way YHVH formed and structured everything according to His
Words of Truth and Structure and they obeyed and became what He planned them to
be. Everything in the Universe obeys His Word of Truth and Light and Stability and
the Planets follow the paths He has instructed. He formed man out of the dust and
ground of the Earth and spoke His Word to conform man to His likeness, but man
disobeyed and was not complete. To complete man will take 6000 years where
YHVH has to separate and “re-form” man to become Like Him. Separate, because of
impurities and forming to complete man according to His will image and likeness.
Instructions are words of Truth that brings Structure to complete this creating
process, which was delayed in the beginning by sin.
Truth, the makeup of our being – Truth vs. Death
Sin came into the world through words of the serpent where he altered
the Words of YHVH and this caused impurities that have to be separated
form man. The Words of YHVH are like the DNA for Life and if you
corrupt it, it will deform and bring forth cancer. YHVH must then separate
the bad from the good, cut out the cancer and heal it with His DNA or
Word so that it can be perfect.
Separation is the same concept as death, which is to be separated form
YHVH. Death came into this world through sin, which is the result of altering YHVH’s
Word or the DNA or Structure of His Creation.
Death is the Hebrew word “mooth” and means separation, death (natural or
violent); concretely, the dead, their place or state (hades); figuratively, pestilence,
ruin:--(be) dead((-ly)), death, die(-d).
To fix the problem of death “mooth” , YHVH had to come Himself and face
death to separate the ‘cancer’ from His ‘structure’ by bringing Truth ‘emeth’. We can
also see this in the word picture in the Hebrew language. “Emeth” is the word
that means ‘truth’ and consists of the word “mooth” with an “Aleph” added to it.
“Aleph” represents YHVH or the origin of everything and He faced ‘death’
(connecting the Aleph to mooth) to bring us the Truth “emeth” .
How did YHVH fix the consequences of the lie (sin, death)? He became one with it to
remove the cancerous DNA form our makeup and has filled those ‘gaps’ with Himself
(light, truth, Holy Spirit). Some people accept Y’shua but they do not receive the
Spirit of Truth in their lives, this separates death form their lives but they have the
‘gaps’ that needs to be filled to make the Structure Stable of their being strong. This
is done by the Spirit of Truth Who will fill the voids where ‘lies’ (death) has been
removed. This process is called ‘the washing of the Water of the Word’ where you
need to receive His Word (truth) in your life to give you the Stable Structure that you
need to be changed and formed and completed into His Image and Likeness. The
Word Paul is talking about in not the “New Testament”(was not compiled yet), he was
referring to the TaNaK [Torah (first vive books of the Scripture), Nevi-im (Prophets)
and the Kethuvim (Writings, Psalms)], or the “Old Testament” if you will. His Spirit will
reveal these Truths to you and use it to fill the ‘gaps’ in your makeup and ‘stable

We hear a great deal about the Presence of YHVH. People
confess that they have such a wonderful time in His Presence
and YHVH moved among His people. Oh, God moved in a
powerful way today and isn’t it wonderful in His presence. Lets
look at a few men in Scripture who were in the Presence of
YHVH and compare it to our experiences in the Presence of
The first man was Moses, the most humble man to walk the
earth. Moses was out there in the bush shepherding sheep when he sees the bush
that is burning and not consumed. What is the first thing he hears? He has to change
and humble himself and remove his shoes from his feet because the ground he stood
on was Holy. YHVH appeared to Moses in a burning bush, with fire that can
consume man and kill him.
Deu a:za "1or YHVH gour Elohim is o consuming [ire, o jeolous Èl.
Moses knew something about YHVH’s Holiness that we don’t know. We only
experience YHVH in cool breeze and a lovely feeling, not in fire that makes you fear
and tremble. Fire cannot be handled and can consume all things; it is a dangerous
thing that can consume anything that is unholy.
1so o:z-g Ahooe it stood the serophs: eoch one hod six uings: uith
tuo he cooered his [oce, ond uith tuo he cooered his
[eet, ond uith tuo he [leu. (() And one cried to
onother, ond soid, Holg, holg, holg, is YHVH o[ Hosts:
the uhole eorth [ull o[ His glorg.
Seraphs are the most majestic and most powerful creatures
YHVH has ever made. They are in the Presence of YHVH all
the time and they give Him praises referring to His Holiness.
They are closer to the Presence of YHVH than any other
creature as recorded in Scripture. They are so majestic and so
Holy and how are they in the Presence of YHVH? They bow
their heads and cover their faces and their feet to be able to be
in His Presence. Why do they have to cover their faces and
Feet always represent clay and dust and it identifies that they are only Creatures and
not Elohim. They cover their feet in humility before YHVH showing that they are
humble creatures before Him, even if they are the most powerful beings ever
created. It is not their right to be there, but it is a privilege YHVH gave them.
They cover their faces not to look upon YHVH and to humbly pay respect to Him
showing that they are not worthy to look upon His Glory. How are we, mere men
arrogantly refer to the presence of YHVH as goose bumps and a feeling? It is out of
our ignorance and lack of understanding that we make such empty statements.
Isaiah was one of the greatest prophets who knew more about the Messiah than any
other man in the TaNaK. He came into the Presence of YHVH and spoke a curse
1so o:g Then 1 soid, Woe is me! 1or 1 om undone
(to he cut o[[J: [or 1 om o mon o[ uncleon lips,
ond 1 duell in the midst o[ o people o[ uncleon
lips: [or mg eges hooe seen the King, YHVH o[
He saw YHVH and compared himself with YHVH and found
himself unworthy to live. This is what the true Presence of
YHVH will have on you if you would be privileged to enter
before Him. His power and His Glory is so great they you would not be able to live in
His Presence. Isaiah saw his shortcomings and it was revealed to him in YHVH’s
presence and he was worthy of death because no unclean thing can exist before the
Holiness of YHVH. This is what the true Presence of YHVH is, not a happy feeling
and a turn in your stomach. We are plying and saying stupid things because we do
not know Scripture of understand the Greatness of our Elohim.

The people had to be shielded from the presence of YHVH through the
means of the Tabernacle of Moses and later on the Temple of Solomon.
His Presence resides within the Holy of Holies where only the High
Priest could enter once a year. Before him entering, He had to make
sacrifices for himself and cleanse himself through ritual cleansing. If
anybody would enter into His Presence without going through these
purifying and cleansing procedures, His Holiness would consume them.
Aaron’s two sons brought strange fire before YHVH
while serving in the Tabernacle and this cost them
their lives. YHVH is Holy and there is a certain protocol
in approaching Him. If you do not follow His prescribed
way of approaching Him will cause His fire to consume you because
everything that is not Holy and perfect and pure can come close to
Him. YHVH is like light and sin and wickedness is like darkness.
Darkness cannot exist in light and if you have any darkness in you,
you will be consumed with it. When YHVH comes to the earth after
the Second Coming of Y’shua, then there will be the final Judgment
where His fire will come down and consume the wicked. That fire is
His Holiness that will consume every bit of darkness and impurity
because it cannot exist where He is.
People might say that this happened in the “Old Testament”
and is no longer valid since grace came through Y’shua.
This is not true because Ananias and Sapphira fell down
dead after they have lied to the Holy Spirit. YHVH judged
them and fear filled the camp when they heard this. YHVH is
still a Holy and to be respected, even after Y’shua’s First
We as His Bride need to undergo the cleansing through the
washing of the Word to be prepared to enter before the Almighty King after the
Second Coming of Y’shua.
Eph g:zo-z¬ thot He might soncti[g ond cleonse it uith the uoshing

Ester had to use myrrh and that is usually used for blaming the dead. This is an
indication to us that we have to die to our selves and prepare ourselves with myrrh
and afterwards anoint ourselves with oil, which is an indication of His Holy Spirit.
