Isaiah 6:1-5 In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled the temple. 2 Above him were seraphim, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. 3 And they were calling to one another: “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.” 4 At the sound of their
voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke. 5 “Woe to me!” I cried. “I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the LORD Almighty.”
Setting the Stage:
This is an amazing story about the prophet Isaiah’s Commissioning. He is taken to the temple and experiences the majesty, power and glory of God. Isaiah SAW…
- God seated on a throne (Kings)
- His train (of His robe) filled the temple (Almighty King, longer the train…more grand the king)
- Angels (not “Precious Moments” figurine angels either) these were massive, fierce creatures with 6 wings! Ever wonder why every time someone sees and angel they are afraid? This is why…they are huge, ripped, intimidating, supernatural beings!!!
- Temple shook with the sound of their voices (love to see a sweet little cupid angel do that!!!)
- The smoke represented the very presence and Spirit of God.
