16 But the
LORD [Yahovah] of hosts [tsaba'] shall be
exalted [gabahh] in judgment, [mishpat] and God ['el] that is holy [qadowsh] shall be sanctified [qadash]
in righteousness. [tsadaqah]KJV-Interlinear
16 But the
Lord of hosts will be exalted in judgment, And the holy God will show Himself
holy in righteousness. NASB
Exalted, 'gabahh,' here means to be raised to a great height.
Holy, 'qadowsh,' means to be set apart, and is formed from the combination of righteousness and justice.
Sanctified, 'qadash,' means to make clean, consecrate, dedicate, hallow, purify.
Righteousness, 'tsadaqah,' means sinless perfection, taintless purity.
When the ultimate judgment is poured out on this world during the Tribulation, there will be such a high death count, that it will be literally impossible to count the dead. And yet while many superficial types will try to condemn God for His actions, as they have throughout history, blaming God for the many atrocities that have occurred in history, the facts will make it so clear, that the high level of judgment is more than justified, and in fact mandatory.
Evil will have grown to such great levels, that only the near and total destruction of humanity can bring it to a stop. But then, as we have already studied in Revelation, humanity will on its own, be so evil that it will already be destroying itself to the point of near extinction. God will in fact be saving humanity from total extinction.
The righteousness and perfect character of God, His justice and fairness, will be raised to the highest of standards and will be visible and obvious to all.
And in Gods judgment, there is total cleansing and purification in His actions. God is not tainted nor can there be found any sin or guilt or complaint in God for the execution of His just judgment.
God will remain prefect in His character, in His essence, in His holiness.
