Exodus 29:44-45 - And I will make the tabernacle of the congregation holy,
and the altar. I will also make both Aaron and his sons holy to minister to
me in the priest's office. And I will dwell among the children of Israel
and will be their God.

God's Holiness Given To Man (Part 2)
Wherever God goes, His holiness is there. Wherever He dwells, the place
becomes endowed with His holiness (Exodus 19:9-25, 24:16-17; Deuteronomy
4:10-5:29; Psalm 68:18). His holiness exterminates anything that is unholy.
His life is lethal to anything that is unclean. Holiness can also be
understood on the basis of proximity, or how close someone/something has
come to the presence of God. The act of God making things holy is observed
with the Sabbath (Genesis 2:3; Exodus 20:11), the ground (Exodus 3:5-6),
the mountain (Exodus 19), Israel and its priests (Exodus 29:44, 31:13;
Leviticus 21:8,15, 22:9,16; Ezekiel 20:12, 37:28; cf. also Exodus 29:43),
the firstborn (Numbers 3:13, 8:17; cf. also Exodus 29:43), His sanctuary
(Exodus 29:43-44; 1 Kings 9:3,7; 2 Chronicles 7:16,20, 30:8, 36:14), the
altars (Exodus 29:36-37, 30:10, 40:10), His Church (Ephesians 5:27), and
all those who are redeemed (Colossians 1:22; 1 Corinthians 1:2)

Once this holiness has been given, then it is the responsibility of the
recipients not to desecrate it. If they grieve His Holy Spirit, then the
consequences are grave (Leviticus 10:3, 22:32; Numbers 20:12-13, 27:14;
Deuteronomy 32:51; Isaiah 63:10,11; Psalm 51:13; Isaiah 1:4, 5:19, 24,
10:20, 12:6, 17:7, 29:19, 30:11,12,15, 31:1, 37:23; 2 Kings 19:22) and
(Isaiah 41:14,16,20, 43:3,14, 45:11, 47:4, 48:17, 49:7, 54:5, 55:5,
60:9,14; Jeremiah 50:29, 51:5; Psalm 71:22, 78:41, 89:19; cf. Isaiah 10:17,
29:23, 40:25, 43:15; Ezekiel 39:7). God will not dwell in the midst of
uncleanness, regardless of whether it's ritual or ethical uncleanness
(Deuteronomy 23:14; 2 Corinthians 6:17). The swiftness of God executing
judgment upon any violation might also be equally regarded on the basis of
proximity, or the laws associated with that which was devoted. Nadab and
Abihu would be examples of the former, and Achan of the latter (Leviticus
10:1-3; Joshua 7:1).

It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the Living God. (Hebrews
