ONLY GOD IS HOLY
Me here: This is the only conclusion I can reach as well. In the Revelation, a word search of "holy" brings up 16 pages of references. In most, the uncapped "holy" refers to that which mortals have self determined to be "holy", including the early primitives who began the determinations of history of the things and the people that are holy while Holy (capped) is only used to describe the Mother or Holy Spirit. This is telling to me as I am of the mind that only those and that infused with Father and/or Mother and/or Son can be truly Holy in any universe sense of the word.
Friend Howard posted the quote: " (1104.6) 101:1.3 The divine spirit makes contact with mortal man, not by feelings or emotions, but in the realm of the highest and most spiritualized thinking. It is your thoughts, not your feelings, that lead you Godward. The divine nature may be perceived only with the eyes of the mind. But the mind that really discerns God, hears the indwelling Adjuster, is the pure mind. “Without holiness no man may see the Lord.” All such inner and spiritual communion is termed spiritual insight. Such religious experiences result from the impress made upon the mind of man by the combined operations of the Adjuster and the Spirit of Truth as they function amid and upon the ideas, ideals, insights, and spirit strivings of the evolving sons of God."
If holiness is derived from holy, then this too is saying that the mind/soul which knows God and His Holiness, then may man see the Lord - the God fused mind can see God and no other....almost as if only God may see Himself. Our first viewing does not come until finaliter status is achieved which is the first time we are spiritized sufficiently to view Him.
I am convinced that no thing can ever be truly holy or Holy either one. That without God within it, it cannot be thus. Primitivism claims much to be holy in its search for the God that lives within the mind and spirit of those who ascribe such reality to inanimate objects - relics, fetishes, charms, hills, mountains, books, grails, burial clothes, splinters, etc. While Father is the creator of all, He is not found within all the materials of His creation but in all the beings, personalities, and minds of all the universes - in and out of time and space.
Until the text is read and the reader is changed thereby, there is nothing holy. When the holiness occurs within the mind of the seeker, then it is that experience which is holy and still not the text itself. Holiness is an experience within and never an object or it is a person of the trinity...the Holy one. A holy man/woman would then be, by this definition, one who knows God and acts thusly....not one who claims such or accepts such designation by others....like the priests for example. There are priests who may be holy but not because they or any other mortal says so. God defines holy. And as Brother Bill says,
ONLY GOD IS HOLY
