God is also described as a holy being, and His holiness is so pure. People, places, things and time is described by the bible scriptures as holy because they offer a closer relationship to God. Isaiah and Ezekiel had visions that show the supremacy nature and the unique nature of God. In the visions, the temple is termed as a holy place which is filled by Gods presence. Ezekiel sees a river that provided gods life and gave holiness to its people. Jesus also interacted with unclean to show that Gods holiness is meant to benefit everyone.
Sacrifices are meant to bring people closer to God, and several sacrifices were offered on different occasions in the bible as Gods requirements or as a rightful will of the people. In the book of Leviticus, several types of sacrifices are offered, including the Burnt offering, Grain offering, peace offering, purification offering and reparation offering. In these offerings, some procedures were followed to ensure its worthiness and holiness of the offering. Animal offerings are the most common offering type, and its blood could be sprinkled across the altar, and the worshipers laid hands on the animal heal before the slaughter. Sacrifices were a significant symbol in Gods worship in quest and appreciation of His holiness.
