The Holiness of God – R.C. Sproul


Some years ago I was blessed to hear this after my friend and sister in the Lord, Helen, loaned me the CD. Over the last 34 years I’ve heard a number of sermons preached on the topic of God’s Holiness, but this one stirred me like no other. If time permits I pray you will turn off your phone, lean back and listen to R.C. Sproul teach on the Holiness of God. You will be blessed.

In the year that King Uzzi′ah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and his train filled the temple. Above him stood the seraphim; each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.And one called to another and said:

“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts;
the whole earth is full of his glory.”

And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who called, and the house was filled with smoke. And I said: “Woe is me! For I am lost; for I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts!”

Then flew one of the seraphim to me, having in his hand a burning coal which he had taken with tongs from the altar. And he touched my mouth, and said: “Behold, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away, and your sin forgiven.” And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.” And he said, “Go, and say to this people:

‘Hear and hear, but do not understand;
see and see, but do not perceive.’
10 Make the heart of this people fat,
    and their ears heavy,
    and shut their eyes;
lest they see with their eyes,
    and hear with their ears,
and understand with their hearts,
    and turn and be healed.”

11 Then I said, “How long, O Lord?”

And he said:

“Until cities lie waste
    without inhabitant,
and houses without men,
    and the land is utterly desolate,
12 and the Lord removes men far away,
    and the forsaken places are many in the midst of the land.
13 And though a tenth remain in it,
    it will be burned again,
like a terebinth or an oak,
    whose stump remains standing
    when it is felled.”
The holy seed is its stump.

(Isaiah 6)

  1. That’s a profound 57 minutes of time here! I was touched. R.C. Sproul is one of those men who you cannot lightly listen to. He has a depth and breadth of understanding based in both history itself and Biblical knowledge of things both old and new. I like listening to his teachings.

    Thanks PJ for sharing this video.

    • When posting this last evening i prayed “dear Lord, move upon at least one person to take time to listen to this”….i am so glad God answered that prayer Michael, and you were blessed by it!

      We hear so little today on the Holiness of God…it’s become a “lost topic/doctrine” like so many others like the Cross and the Blood. We need to hear on more on these doctrines which are foundational to the faith.

      I actually heard the CD copy of this teaching by Sproul years ago. I recall sitting in my chair with ear-phones on listening to it. I could almost physically “feel” the presence of the Holy Spirit as R.C. Sproul talked on God’s Holiness. I’ve always said a preacher cant preach and a teacher can’t teach on a topic they have not been given divine inspiration on first. Sproul, in this message, is proof of this.
