    Here I am. Send me. As I see the last days approaching, I would not mind at all being one of the two witnesses in the last days. I would not mind at all in being killed because I know that I will be revived. But since I think they will be Jews I guess I can't. But, here I am Lord.

    Isaiah’s Vision and Commission! Chapter 6:
    In perhaps the most beautiful vision of his life, Isaiah saw God and experience His forgiving power. The prophet was cleansed and commissioned by God to declare to People Gods
    Message: The fire(Vss. 6-7) was a symbol of the Cleansing. and lo, this has touched thy lips,
    and thine iniquity is taken away: and thy sin purged: Lord do that to me!

In vs5 Isaiah speaks in the fear of the Lord as he stands before the Holy altar of God the father in Heavan. realizing his own sinful heart and the hearts of the nation of Israel. He as well as they stand naked in their sin before God. God removes his sin and covers his transgressions. Isaiahs heart is transformed and he willingly volunteers

    Verse 8~Isaiah didn't know the full scope of the assignment before he accepted it, but he eagerly volunteered and put full faith and trust in Jehovah God.

    The throne is in each of us. Not until whatever I've crowned king DIES do I "see" the Lord on the throne... though, of course, I do not *perceive* from my place of uncleanness, as the Isaiah in each of us is sent to tell me.
