  • Stephen on Isaiah 6 - 1 year ago
    What does it mean when Isaiah says here am I, send me?
  • Gerald - In Reply on Isaiah 6 - 1 year ago
    Isiah though indeed a true prophet of God changed considerably when in " the year king huziah died he saw the Lord high and lifted up and his train filled the temple"

    For when he saw the Lord he saw also himself and in the light of the Lord said " woe is me for I am undone .."

    Many claim to see the Lord or have visions but are not changed for the better but rather only boast in their visions and revelations .Isiah felt unclean unholy and unfit " a man of unclean lips "

    Who needed a burning coal from off the altar to cleanse them . The lips are very tender think on that.

    He confessed his sin ,was contrite and only then commissioned .

    His messages after that radically changed .

    You cannot be sent by God unless you have been to or encountered God .

    For you no longer go in your own name but in the name who sent you .

    Not to do your will but the will of Him who sent you .

    This is not self appointed nor is it imposed .

    For how can the list be saved? Unless they hear the message? And how will they hear the message unless it is preached?

    Who then will go for us?

    Confession ,contrition commission .

    "Send me "

    "Go in this Thy might "" you might say .

    I came not to do my will but the will of Hom that sent me".

    He that seeks his own glory is unrighteous but he that seeks the glory of him that sent him.."

    Amen Gerald!

    "For when he saw the Lord he saw also himself and in the light of the Lord said " woe is me for I am undone .."

    Great reply.

    Yep, and a special commission at that ; without going into great detail , Isaiah volunteered for this commission upon hearing the Lords voice from the temple . when being cleansed, purified , purged and atoned from all his iniquity/sins he was to tell or inform the people of Judah and Israel who have and have not the eyes to see and ears to hear of the coming of the false messiah, his deception and it's desolation . those who are blinded to the truth , their hearts will remain or grow duller to it , a slumber so to speak . many are put their by God for their protection but ultimately come out of it in the end when the elect as you read in verse 13 a tenth of who's leaves are cast upon us that remain , the holy seed shall be the substance thereof. fascinating

    Hi Stephen.

    Here in Ch 6, after King Uzziah died you have the call and commission of Isaiah to the office of the prophets.

    In verse 8 he answers the call. "Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I,

    (Here am I; send me.)

    GBU.
