What does “holy” even mean?

 

 

“Holy (hagios) spaces” are externally hieros “sacred” because of their formal relation to God, like the propheticsacred gramma writings” that made Timothy “wise unto salvation through trusting-relying-faith in Christ.”  In context, these are the “every-of-a-kind (a) graphe scripture (b) that “are breathed out by God” (c) and in context these are the ones “that are profitable for teaching, for reproof, for corrections, and for training in righteousness.”  We also know from the context and early Church writings that this collection of Messianic and New Covenant prophecies was actually used to “train as young children” Jews to leave “works righteousness” to convert to “trusting-relying-faith in Christ righteousness” (d). <Notes> a) pas usually doesn’t mean “the whole of”, b) a collection of hieros sacred gramma writings, c) as all prophecy is by definition given by God’s breath or Spirit – the Hebrew and Greek mean the same, d) 2 Timothy 3:15-16.

 

Hagios means “holy as consecrated, dedicated, separated, or set apart externally and internally to God for His special purposes and thus deserving honor.”  All “hagios saints” are “hagios holy ones.”  They aren’t someone “special” that the Catholic Church ordained since 993AD as “saints” because of their special “works,” which is contrary to the very logos gospel message of The Truth that contrasts works with trusting-relying-faith.  A “saint” is every single Christian who has the Holy Spirit given to them by unconditional-favor-of-grace – God is the one who “separated them for His special purposes.”  We are made holy (a)!   <Notes> a) Acts 9:13, 32, 41, 26:10; Romans 1:7, 8:27, 12:13, 15:25-26, 16:2, 15; 1 Corinthian 1:2, 6:1-2, 14:33, 16:1, 15; 2 Corinthians 1:1, 8:4, 9:1, 12-13; Ephesians 1:1, 15, 18, 2:19, 3:8, 18, 4:12 (all Christians are now the “ministers”), 5:3 (“greedy desire for more” is unfitting for saints), 6:18; Philippians 1:1, 4:21-22; Colossians 1:2, 4, 12, 26; 1 Thessalonians 3:13; 2 Thessalonians 1:10; 1 Timothy 5:10; Philemon 1:5, 7; Hebrews 6:10, 13:24; Jude 1:3; Revelation 5:8, 8:3.

 

There are 152 other uses of the word hagios in the NT, but for our purposes consider:  Luke 1:72 (a); 1 Peter 1:15 (b); Ephesians 2:21 (c); 1 John 2:20-27 (d); Luke 12:12 (e). <Notes> a) holy covenant, b) you are to become holy in your conduct like the Holy One who called you, c) Christians are now the holy temple of God, d) all Christian people have the anointing from the Holy One so they all have gnosis knowledge so they have absolutely no need of any other teacher, e) “the Holy Spirit will teach you at that very moment what you must say” implies no bible study.
