Bible Ballistics: BBs #546 God Is Still God!!!
“In the year that king Uzziah died
I saw also the Lord
sitting upon a throne,
high and lifted up,
and his train filled the temple.
2 Above it stood the seraphims:
each one had six wings;
with twain he covered his face,
and with twain he covered his feet,
and with twain he did fly.
3 And one cried unto another, and said,
Holy, holy, holy,
is the LORD of hosts:
the whole earth is full of his glory.
4 And the posts of the door moved
at the voice of him that cried,
and the house was filled with smoke.
5 Then said I,
Woe is me!
for I am undone;
I am a man of unclean lips,
and I dwell in the midst of
a people of unclean lips:
for mine eyes have seen the King,
the LORD of hosts.” Isaiah 6:1-5
Isaiah had a life-changing encounter with God—and we can have the same when we come to Jesus. Isaiah saw God in His holiness, which brought him to see himself in his sinful state! And that’s what we each must do—come to see God for who He is—GOD—and to see ourselves as sinners with no recourse to fix our sin problem. And SIN is the problem—you/I have it, you/I can’t fix it, but Jesus can and will if we will but humble ourselves before Him as Isaiah did. Isaiah saw God as:
“The Lord— High and lifted up—
Holy, Holy, Holy—
The Lord of hosts— Full of glory—
The KING— The LORD of hosts–”!
Amen and amen! And as Isaiah had his sin dealt with by a burning coal, Jesus dealt with sin at Calvary for all who will come to Him—the promise that Isaiah looked for, is the One we look back to. As He invited people then, He is still inviting people to Himself today! (He who has ‘eyes like fire’, see Isaiah 6:6-9 and Rev. 1:13-15).
“Come unto me,
all ye that labour
and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you,
and learn of me;
for I am meek
and lowly in heart:
and ye shall find rest
unto your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy,
and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
Jesus will give “rest unto your souls”—for HE is still God, HE is the Sacrifice for sin, The Redeemer of my/your soul. Do you hear a knock at your heart’s door? He’s waiting!
“Behold, I stand at the door,
if any man hear my voice,
and open the door,
I will come in to him,
and will sup with him,
and he with me.” Revelation 3:20
