  • Peter Mushitu on Isaiah 6 - 2 years ago
    I want to state that Isaiah 6:1 where Isaiah refered to King Uzziah year of death has not impact or significance to him seeing God.He marely refered to the year the invent happened.The death of uzzziah did not cause Isaiah to see God.In the past major invents like wars, famines , deaths of very important people were used to point people to when that invent happened.So those that say your uzzziah must die in life for you to see or God to bless you are only miss interpreting scriptures and must go back and read the first sentence of the scripture

    Thank you Peter - well written. I've often wondered why people sometimes corrupt the intent of Scripture in the way they do. The passage is plain: Isaiah received the vision of the Lord & Heaven in that year of Uzziah's death. And since Isaiah lived through the reigns of the earlier kings of Judah (Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz & Hezekiah), it seems that this could have been one of his earlier visions recorded. And of course, Uzziah died, probably from leprosy ( 2 Chronicles 26:18-21), so that would have been a momentous occasion both in Judah's history & as a notable date used by Isaiah for giving his revelation.

    To reconstruct this passage to infer that it speaks of 'one's own Uzziah dying first before we can have a vision of Heaven', is to do great disservice to the Scripture & opens the way for innocent unlearned believers to continue to look at the Word is such a distorted manner. Maybe Bible teachers are becoming weary of teaching passages of Scripture over & over again - so dishing out something like this becomes a revelation to the hearers & lifts the teacher up another notch for his wisdom. Tragic.

    Thanks man of God for insights of the scripture.Many have preached wrongly on this passage to make people think that uzzziah death is what made Isaiah to know God
