The triple declaration of the holiness of God

Revelation Bible Background

12.13.2018 – New Testament: Rev 4.8

To read the Bible in a year, read Revelation 4 on December 13, In the year of our Lord Christ 2018

By Don Ruhl

A voice from heaven invited John into heaven and once there, he was brought into the throne room of God. What did John see? He wrote down what he saw, but we know that is nothing compared to being there. He also heard something magnificent, similar to what Isaiah heard (Isaiah 6.1–5):

The four living creatures, each having six wings, were full of eyes around and within. And they do not rest day or night, saying:

“Holy, holy, holy,
Lord God Almighty,
Who was and is and is to come!”

(Revelation 4.8)

I do not know of any other triple declaration of another of God’s attributes. Truly, His holiness sets Him apart from us more than anything else about Him.


  • What do you think of this declaration that John heard?
  • If you follow Christ, do you realize that you also shall hear it someday?
