Discussion for Isaiah 6:1

  • Jerome onyebuchi for verse 1
    two kind of relationship.people who reduce u and people dat increase u
  • I think that all of us have a Uzziah in our life we need to kill
  • Isaiah 6 1 needs to be read together with 2 Chronicles 26. Uzziah was probably the most successful King of Judah, since Solomon. His death and fall from grace would necessarily be a notable part of Judah 's history. It therefore becomes a useful point of reference for Isaiah as he speaks of his vision of the Lord. Note "in the year that King Uzziah died ", NOT on the day. In the past, references were linked to major events like earthquakes, storms, famines, plagues etc. and so the year of Uzziah 's death is one such reference.
  • Grace Sichali Chirambo for verse 1
    I believe it is a powerful testimony to
    all Believers to as mentioned in Rev. 21:7
    prayerfully overcome weaknesses, corruption
    and dishonor that easily besets us,
    because as in King Uzziah's part of the sad story,
    it confirms scripture, "flesh and blood
    will not inherit eternal life."
  • Pastor Ken for verse 1
    WHO Was Uzziah? the death of Uzziah (His pride and assumption)brought Change and Transformation to Isaiah into a higher Calling. If we can give up most of the things we are depending on,clean our heart and spirit we shall see God.
