Jehovah Mikaddesh

 

Jehovah M’Kaddesh means “The Lord our Sanctifier” or “The Lord who sanctifies”. Sanctification means to be set apart unto the Lord.  The Lord sanctifies and sets us apart from the world. We are sanctified by the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives and the Word of God. Jesus asked the Father to “sanctify them through thy Truth, thy Word is Truth (John 17:17).”
