Psalms, Mark, II John
He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever:
holy and reverend is his name.
The Holiness Movement
Of the various meanings associated with the Nineteenth Letter Quph, the first and foremost
is that of Holiness, which is derived directly from the Quph KeyWord
which God used in the Quph Alphabetic Verse in Psalm 111.
This integrates with the great Holiness Movement of the Nineteenth Century, when dozens of "Holiness
Denominations" were founded.
Here is a brief outline of its origins
from the online article The American Holiness Movement :
In the midnineteenth century several factors converged that contributed to
the renewal of the Holiness emphasis, among them the camp meeting revivals that were
a common feature in rural America, the Christian perfectionism of Charles Finney and Asa Mahan (the
Oberlin theology), the "Tuesday Meeting" of Phoebe Palmer in New York, the urban
revival of 1857 - 58, and protests within the Methodist churches about the decline of discipline
which resulted in the Wesleyan Methodist secession in 1843 and Free Methodist withdrawal in
1860. These two became the first denominations formally committed to Holiness. After the
Civil War a full fledged Holiness revival broke out within the ranks of Methodism, and
in 1867 the National Camp Meeting Association for the Promotion of Holiness was formed. From
1893 it was known as the National Holiness Association (NHA) and in 1971 was renamed
the Christian Holiness Association. Until the 1890s Methodists dominated the movement and
channeled its enthusiasm into their churches.
Phoebe Palmer: Mother of the Holiness Revival
"She could have graced a throne, or filled the office of a bishop, or organized
and governed a new sect. . . . Whoever promotes holiness in all this country, must build
upon the deep-laid foundations of this holy woman," wrote a leading minister upon
the death in 1874 of Phoebe Palmer of New York City. A century later, M. E. Dieter
argued in his history of The Holiness Revival of the Nineteenth Century that "the quiet
discourse and boundless activity" of Mrs. Palmer "became the major impetus in
setting off a world wide [holiness] movement. "
Stan Ingersol , Herald of Holiness
Phoebe Palmer was the leader of the "Tuesday Meeting for the Promotion of Holiness,"
the author of the The Way of Holiness, and the editor of the magazine called
the Guide to Holiness.
