Your Personal Invitation to be Saved
and go to Heaven when your life on earth is over!!!
(1) God loves You!!
Romans 5:8, But God commendeth his love
toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
(2) Your Sin (or Disobedience to God) has Separated You from God!!
Romans 5:12, Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all
men, for that all have sinned:
(3) Only Jesus-Christ
can Forgive Your Sins!!
Acts 4:12, Neither is there
salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
(4) Will You Receive Jesus-Christ as
Your Lord (or Authority) & Savior (or Rescuer)??
Mark 1:15, And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
(Through Prayer) Sorrowfully tell God Your a Sinner, willing to turn from Your Sins and trust Jesus-Christ's shedding of Blood
and Death on the Cross for Full Payment of Your Sins and will Follow Him.
Welcome to Our Daily Devotional
Day we will READ a Chapter of the Bible
Look at the MEANING of that Chapter
make APPLICATION of this Chapter to my life
Today's Scripture: Isaiah 6
| | 1In
the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the LORD sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled
it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet,
and with twain he did fly.
3And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth
is full of his glory.
the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.
5Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone;
because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen
the King, the LORD of hosts.
6Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken
with the tongs from off the altar:
7And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity
is taken away, and thy sin purged.
8Also 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.
9And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but
the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear
with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.
11Then 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,
the LORD have removed men far away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land.
13But yet in it shall be a tenth, and
it shall return, and shall be eaten: as a teil tree, and as an oak, whose substance is in them, when they cast their
leaves: so the holy seed shall be the substance thereof.
|Today's Scripture Meaning: |
The vision which Isaiah
beheld in the temple. (1-8) The Lord declares the blindness to come upon the Jewish nation, and the destruction which
would follow. (9-13)
Verses 1-8: In this figurative vision,
the temple is thrown open to view, even to the most holy place. The prophet, standing outside the temple, sees the
Divine Presence seated on the mercy-seat, raised over the ark of the covenant, between the cherubim and seraphim, and the
Divine glory filled the whole temple. See God upon his throne. This vision is explained, (Joh
12:41), that Isaiah now saw Christ's glory, and spake of Him, which is a full proof that our Saviour is God.
In Christ Jesus, God is seated on a throne of grace; and through him the way into the holiest is laid open. See God's
temple, his church on earth, filled with his glory. His train, the skirts of his robes, filled the temple, the whole
world, for it is all God's temple. And yet he dwells in every contrite heart. See the blessed attendants by whom his
government is served. Above the throne stood the holy angels, called seraphim, which means "burners;" they
burn in love to God, and zeal for his glory against sin. The seraphim showing their faces veiled, declares that they
are ready to yield obedience to all God's commands, though they do not understand the secret reasons of his counsels,
government, or promises. All vain-glory, ambition, ignorance, and pride, would be done away by one view of Christ
in his glory. This awful vision of the Divine Majesty overwhelmed the prophet with a sense of his own vileness. We
are undone if there is not a Mediator between us and this holy God. A glimpse of heavenly glory is enough to convince
us that all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags. Nor is there a man that would dare to speak to the Lord, if he
saw the justice, holiness, and majesty of God, without discerning his glorious mercy and grace in Jesus Christ. The
live coal may denote the assurance given to the prophet, of pardon, and acceptance in his work, through the atonement
of Christ. Nothing is powerful to cleanse and comfort the soul, but what is taken from Christ's satisfaction and intercession.
The taking away sin is necessary to our speaking with confidence and comfort, either to God in prayer, or from God
in preaching; and those shall have their sin taken away who complain of it as a burden, and see themselves in danger
of being undone by it. It is great comfort to those whom God sends, that they go for God, and may therefore speak
in his name, assured that he will bear them out.
Verses 9-13: God
sends Isaiah to foretell the ruin of his people. Many hear the sound of God's word, but do not feel the power of it.
God sometimes, in righteous judgment, gives men up to blindness of mind, because they will not receive the truth in
the love of it. But no humble inquirer after Christ, need to fear this awful doom, which is a spiritual judgment on
those who will still hold fast their sins. Let every one pray for the enlightening of the Holy Spirit, that he may
perceive how precious are the Divine mercies, by which alone we are secured against this dreadful danger. Yet the
Lord would preserve a remnant, like the tenth, holy to him. And blessed be God, he still preserves his church; however
professors or visible churches may be lopped off as unfruitful, the holy seed will shoot forth, from whom all the
numerous branches of righteousness shall arise.
|Today's Scripture Application: |
Each day we walk through the Bible
chapter by chapter making an application of our text to help us grow in the Lord. Many applications can be made from each
day's text. Today we continue in the Book of Isaiah with Chapter 6. In our text today we see how God commissions
Isaiah to spread the word of God. In making application we see how God commissions us to do the same, share the Gospel
with every creature. Isaiah felt as many of us also, unworthy to share the Word of God with others because of our sinful nature.
But God, explains it is Him that equips us and uses us if we simply obey the Lord and Share the Gospel. How about you? Do
you share the Gospel? Let us learn from our text today and the example of Isaiah to remember that all believers have been
called to share the Gospel, and we do so in and through the power of the Holy Spirit.
