PASTOR POPHIN: Face-to-face with Jesus

(Continued)

Here are some of Isaiah’s observations in his encounter with God:

• King Uzziah had died. Uzziah was one of the good kings of Israel. (2 Kings 15:3) Isaiah was grieved.

• In the midst of Isaiah’s grief, he was caught up into the Heavenly realm and saw the Lord.

• Isaiah experienced the majesty of the Lord. The Lord was highly exalted, seated on the throne, the train of His robe filled the temple. What an awesome experience for Isaiah.

• There were seraphim (angels) with six wings. Two wings covered their faces, a sign of being yielded to the Lord God. Two wings covered their feet, a sign of modesty and being in the presence of the great and almighty King. And with the other two they flew.

• The seraphim cried out in praise of the Holy Lord God Almighty.

We note Isaiah’s experience in his encounter with God. Isaiah’s reaction is that he knew he was doomed in God’s presence because he was unclean or sinful in the presence of a god who was holy. He experienced the cleansing and redeeming power of God. He experienced God’s calling to go. He replied, “Here am I, send me!”

Perhaps the most painful moments of life are a result of sin. The pain becomes almost excruciating as we compare it to the holy life God originally intended for us. The good news is, Jesus Christ came and paid the price for our sin; the cross bridges the gulf between us and God caused by sin. And now, we are being sent to tell others about salvation. We answer the call by saying, “Here am I. Send me!” Have a blessed week and tell someone about what Jesus has done for you!
