GLIMPSES OF THE GREAT GOD: DAY FIVE
"In the year that king Uzziah died, I saw the Lord seated on a throne, high and exalted, and the train of His robe filled the temple.
Above Him were seraphs, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying.
And they were calling to one another: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of His glory.”
At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke.
“Woe to me!” I cried.
“I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the Lord Almighty.”
Then one of the seraphs flew to me with a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with tongs from the altar.
With it he touched my mouth and said, “See, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away and your sin atoned for.”
Isaiah 6:1 - 7
Isaiah was exposed, in his vision, to the awesome holiness of God. In the light of God’s purity, he became painfully aware of his own impurity. What is God’s holiness? The best understanding I have is that God’s holiness is the guarantee that He will always be who He is, in nature and in action. He is totally separated from sin and impurity. He can never change or think or act differently from who He has revealed Himself to be. He is absolutely consistent with Himself. His holiness is not something to fear but rather it is our security and our hope because He has promised to make us holy because He is holy.
