And I said: “Woe is me! For I am lost; for I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts!”
Isaiah 6:5 ESV
Do you know that sinking feeling when you realize that everything is NOT ok? You do! We all know it!
That feeling is multiplied 100 fold when anyone comes face to face with God.
Why? Because He is Holy!
And anyone who comes face to face with Him realizes that they are so sinful that dread and fear takes over their mind and body.
This is why Isaiah said he was lost! He meant he was a goner. He had seen the King!
Luckily for Him, even in his vision, a seraphim took a coal from the altar and touched his lips to make him clean and able to be in front of the Throne of God.
But what do you think will happen on Judgement Day? What will happen to all of those people who didn’t make Jesus their Lord and Savior, thus cleansing their life of sin?
There won’t be a seraphim to touch their lips with coal. This won’t be merely a vision. Those who haven’t given themselves to Jesus will find themselves trembling in fear and dread.
On that day, they will hear the words of the Lord, “Depart from me, I never knew you!”
And that’s it! That will be the final words they hear.
Until that day, you have a decision to make. It is all yours! No one can make it for you. And no one can take it away after you decide.
How will you choose?
Father, I can’t wait for that day! Until then, give me the grace and mercy to share Your Word with others.
