What do you see when you come tochurch?Who do you look for?
In the year that King Uzziah dies, I saw theLord seated on a throne, high and exalted,and the train of his robe filled the temple.Above him were seraphs, each with sixwings: With two wings they covered theirfaces with two they covered their feet, andwith two they were flying. Isaiah 6: 1-2
And they were calling to one another: “Holy,holy, holy is the Lord Almighty; the wholeearth is full of His glory.”At the sound of their voices the doorpostsand thresholds shook and the temple wasfilled with smoke. Isaiah 6: 3-4
“Woe to me!” “I am ruined! For I am a manof unclean lips, and I live among a people ofunclean lips, and my eyes have seen theKing, the Lord Almighty.” Isaiah 6:5
‘All of us have become like one who isunclean, and all our righteous acts like filthyrags; we all shrivel up like a leaf, and like thewind our sins sweep us away.’ Isaiah 64:6
The cleansing of the prophetThen one of the seraphim flew to me with a live coal inhis hand, which he had taken with tongs from the altar.With it he touched my mouth and said, “See, this hastouched your lips; your guilt is taken away and your sinatoned for.” Isaiah 6:7
‘The effect of that live coal will be to fire the lip withheavenly flame. A flaming coal will burn the lip so that theman cannot speak at all. That is just how God works withus; it is by consuming the fleshly power that he inspires theheavenly might. Oh let the lip be burnt, let the fleshly powerof eloquence be destroyed, but oh let the live coal to makethe tongue eloquent with heavenly flame; the true divinepower which urge the Apostles forward, and made themconquerors of the whole world.’ Spurgeon
The Commision of the ProphetThen I heard the voice of the Lord saying,“Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”And I said, “Here am I. send me!” Isaiah 6:8
What was Isaiah sent to do?He said, “Go and tell this people:“Be ever hearing, but never understanding;be ever seeing, but never perceiving.”Isaiah 6:8
Make the heart of these people calloused;make their ears dull and close their eyes.Otherwise they might see with their eyes,hear with their ears, understand with theirhearts, and turn and be healed.” Isaiah 6: 9-10
Always learning but never able toacknowledgethe truth. 2 Timothy 3:7• For the time will come when they will not tolerate sound doctrine, but according to their own desires• will accumulate teachers for themselves because they have an itch to hear something new. They will turn away from hearing the truth and will turn aside to myth. 2 Timothy 4:3-4
How long was the judgment for?Then I said, “For how long, O Lord?”And He answered: “Until the cities lie ruinedand without inhabitant, until the house areleft deserted and the fields ruined andravaged, Isaiah 6:11
until the Lord has sent everyone far awayand the land is utterly forsaken. And thougha tenth remains in the land, it will again belaid waste. But as the terebinth and oakleave stumps when they are cut down, sothe holy seed will be the stump in the land.”Isaiah 6: 12-13
