Discussion for Isaiah 6

    Isaiah 6:8 "Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, Whom shall I send? And who will go for us? And I said, here Am I, Send me! He said, Go and tell his people: Be even hearing, but never understanding be ever seeing, but never perceiving." MY MY MY!!! NOT MANY ARE WILLING TO GO FOR THE LORD, WHO CALLED US OUT OF DARKNESS TO HIS MARVELOUS LIGHT CAUSE OF THE FEAR OF FAILURE AND PEOPLE! REMEMBER:

    Morgan and Chris asked who said here I am send me. I believe that was Isaiah
  • BSP
    Isaiah felt overwhelmed at the privilege of having this vision and he called to mind how unclean he was. The seraph reassured Isaiah in verse 7 that he could have a clean standing before God. We too can have a clean standing with God if we humbly admit our sins and strive to be clean in His eyes by following his instructions found in the Bible.

    For me I viewed as a message to break the curse of denominational separation in the church if you are crying holy at your church and me at mine then it's about God free's us up to do kingdom work,it's evident that we are not doing it right,there comes the woe is me,but knowing God intimately will renew our preaching the gospel,he has a remnants of ministers that will preach his word till the end

    Verse 3 and 4
    These verses shows us the importance of worship and that worship gives us access to God's presence; and also opens doors of blessings for us.

    WE CAN SAY WOE IS ME FOR I AM UNDONE WITHOUT HIM IN MY LIFE! WE MUST AS BELIEVERS CHECK OURSELVES BEFORE WE TRY TO CHECK SOMEBODY ELSE! IN ORDER TO STAY HUMBLE SO GOD CAN LIFT US UP, WE MUST COMPARE OUR WAYS TO HIM, AND SEE HOW FAR WE FALL SHORT! LORD I THANK U FOR MY WOE IS ME EXPERIENCE SO I CAN UNDERSTAND HOW HOLY, POWERFUL, AND LOVING U ARE IN MY LIFE! LORD I KNOW WITHOUT U I AM NOTHING BUT WITH U I AM MORE THAN A CONQUOER,
