Isaiah 6 // so, what about you, will YOU go?



I am doing a study on Isaiah for my school right now - and it had me start out by reading Isaiah chapter 6. It starts out...oh, normal. "In the year that King Uzziah died (see?? just wait tho. now it changes.) I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple."

 read that again. IT. FILLED. THE. TEMPLE. like waht.

Apparently in those ancient days, the longer the train of your robe was, the greater a king you were. God's train filled the temple....God is always mightier, no matter what. *grins cuz that's my King*

 And, Isaiah, being human, declared the he was unworthy of seeing the King - the Lord of hosts. A seraphim (angel) flew down and took a piece of coal FROM THE ALTER and touched Isaiah's lips with it.

"Behold this has touched your lips;
Your iniquity is taken away,
And your sin purged."

....... still don't know what to say. For Isaiah, that feeling had to have been immensely overwhelming.

 then Isaiah heard -- literally, he heard the Lord's voice - God asking for someone to send, to go out as a prophet. Isaiah immediately responded;

 "Here am I! Send me."

And God replied - "Go."

so what about you? 
will you go??

  12. I had never heard that the length of the train actually implied status- I mean, reading it, you realize that it's impressive, and you guess it really made an impact on Isaiah somehow, but that just brings new meaning to it!!! That is so awesome!!!

  13. Those photos are really nice! That light, and the seed-heads are so pretty (of course you and Sarah (I'm guessing?) are too. :)

    I'm going to have to go and read Isaiah 6 now. I always get something out of Isaiah; it's one of my favourite books in the Bible. That question has gets me every time I read it too. Am I willing to go wherever He sends me? Ah, so convicting. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this, Julia!
