In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple. Above it stood seraphim; each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. And one cried to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; The whole earth is full of His glory!” And the posts of the door were shaken by the voice of him who cried out, and the house was filled with smoke.
Isaiah 6 is the one of the most remarkable chapters in the Old Testament. The prophet is permitted a glimpse into the throne room of Heaven. The sights revealed to Isaiah are overwhelming and awesome.
The scene opens with a description of God’s temple. It is majestic beyond compare. This vision reveals the splendor of the Lord as He is lifted up and his robe fills the temple. The Seraphim testify to the holiness of God continually. It must have been a sight to behold.
The sound is so powerful that it shakes the foundation of the temple. And the holiness of God is seen, recited, and readily apparent. The house is filled with smoke and glory resonates from every corner of this place.
We desperately need this vision of God in our day. Many downplay God’s glory and their view of God is simply too small. He is great, mighty, worthy, holy, righteous, and awesome in all His ways. This is a true picture of the one true God who is revealed in Scripture. This is the mighty God we serve!
Be encouraged and exhorted to serve the Lord, Child of God. Yahweh is great and greatly to be praised in all of His ways. Blessings upon you all!
