Discussion for Isaiah 6

  • Judy Marshall
    Someone stated that my church was "a little over the top" because of our music / song worship service. It was not the typical laid back way. To all critics,
  • A disciple
    "Then said I, Lord, how long? And he answered, Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant,
    and the houses without man, and the land be utterly desolate, and the Lord have removed men far away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land." How many Scriptures do we need to convince us, that, "He that ENDURES TO THE END the same shall be saved!" There is a reason why God has us here.
  • A disciple
    "And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not..." Because they do not turn and repent at God's counsel, and will have none of His reproofs; the world walks on in gross darkness, and is appointed to punishment and wrath. "Blessed are Your Eyes, for they see! But to them IT IS NOT GIVEN!" the innermost workings of our thoughts matter!

    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:
  • Mitchel
    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.
