What Did Isaiah See?

Isaiah 6:1-13. God commands respect and honor for leaders (1 Pet 2:17; Rom 13:7). Our national anthem, however, leans toward honoring veterans. People may not wish to honor leaders or veterans, but one day ALL will honor God. Let us petition God that ALL might know the truth about Him now (1 Tim 2:1–4). The vision Yahweh (God, the LORD) gave Isaiah ought to shape everyone’s view of God, the world and ourselves.

I. GOD IS HOLY

A. God is ON His throne (Isa 6:1-4; Ezek 1:22-28; Rev 4:1-11)

B. God is HOLY on His throne (Isa 6:3; Exo 15:11; 1 Sam 2:2; Rev 15:4; Isa 40:23–25)

II. MAN IS LOWLY

A. Sin must be exposed (Isa 1-5)

B. Sin must be confessed (Isa 6:5)

  • God’s nearness to man drives some away (John 3:17–21)
  • Man’s nearness to God gives clarity to sin (Rev 1:17; Dan 10:8)

C. Sin must be cleansed (Isa 6:6–7; Isa 53:5–6; Eph 1:7; Col 1:21–22; Heb 10:9–10)

III. GOD WILL PARDON

A. Ready to serve-up (Isa 6:8)

B. Ready to bear-up (Isa 6:9-13)

Confess your faith in Jesus Christ (Rom 10:9-10).
Repent of your sins and to be baptized into the Name of Jesus Christ (Acts 2:36-38)
That is an invitation to be cleansed and made holy as God is holy.
