"In the year of King Uzziah’s death I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, lofty and EXALTED, with the train of His robe filling the temple.”
"I saw the Lord." Let those words sink in.
There was a time - the year of King Uzziah's death.
There was a place - sitting on a throne in a temple.
There was a description - lofty...exalted...the train of His robe FILLING the temple. How does that even happen?
There were others - Seraphim stood above Him, each having six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. (verse 2)
There was talking. The seraphim called out to one another and said, “Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord of hosts, The whole earth is full of His glory.” (verse 3)
Someone called out and this happened - "And the foundations of the thresholds trembled at the voice of him who called out, while the temple was filling with smoke." (verse 4)
This was Isaiah's response - "Then I said, 'Woe is me, for I am ruined! Because I am a man of unclean lips, And I live among a people of unclean lips; For my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts.'” (verse 5)
What will be your response when you see the EXALTED LORD JESUS?
EXALTED Lord, we can't imagine what it will be like when we see YOU. Our hearts tremble at the thought of Your majesty and glory. May our awe and reverence for You be lived out in our daily decisions and behavior...in anticipation of the day, time, place we see You.
