The Book of Isaiah
Bible Study-ISA-Chapter 6
The Voice From the Temple
The Voice from the Temple. This will be our Father’s voice, it will come in a vision to Isaiah.
Isaiah 6:1 In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.
Uzziah was the 13th king over the House of Judah and out of all 23 of them he was considered to be one of the good ones. He reigned for about 52 years and through that time the Southern Kingdom prospered. More so than since the time of Solomon.
As he was approaching the end, he was so enamored with his career and himself that he was determined to burn incense on the altar of our Father, something that was strictly prohibited. King or not, our Father would only allow a priest to do such a ceremony and only one with the pedigree and bloodline through Aaron:
Ref: Numbers 16:40 To be a memorial unto the children of Israel, that no stranger, which is not of the seed of Aaron, come near to offer incense before the Lord; that he be not as Korah, and as his company: as the Lord said to him by the hand of Moses. KJV
As he was about to do it, the high priest Azariah and eighty others cautioned him strongly against it but he persisted and as he approached the altar with the incense, our Father struck him with leprosy. He died shortly thereafter and was buried with the fathers.
The earthly king died and our Father remains on His Throne.
It always blows my mind, when I think about it, but our Father wanted to be the peoples’ king, He wanted them to depend on Him and to come to Him in their times of need but Israel would not have it. And this was before He split the Kingdom up into a North and a South Kingdom.
The people were so caught up in what the heathen nations around them were doing, that they wanted a “man” king just like they had. These were the chosen people of our Father and yet they wanted to imitate a bunch of heathens, refuse our Father’s request to be their king, and they chose Saul to be their leader.
How that must have hurt our Father’s feelings to hear those words…
”We don’t want You, we want a “man-king” over us!”
Nobody ever talks about this, none of your precious preachers will ever say anything about this, but our Father has feelings just like we do, He has emotions just like we do. He hurts, He gets jealous, He gets angry and so on.
We are made in His image and if we have these kinds of feelings, then so does He.
Isaiah 6:2 Above 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.
These seraphim are not to be confused with the cherubim of Ezekiel chapter 1. Seraphim have, symbolically, but one face whereas the cherubim had four. In Ezekiel the cherubim had four wings but here the seraphim had six. Again, symbolically.
This gives us another small insight into the world of our Father. In Revelation 4:6, St. John writes about the four beasts that were around His Throne, the Zoa or Zoon:
Revelation 4:6 And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. KJV
We have the archangels, Michael and Gabriel, who come and go at His command.
Ref: Jude 9 Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee. KJV
Although both are archangels only Michael is given that title in Scripture.
Ref: Luke 1:19 And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to shew thee these glad tidings. KJV
There were the two cherubim that sat on either side of the Mercy Seat:
Ref: Exodus 25:17 And thou shalt make a mercy seat of pure gold: two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof.
Ref: Exodus 25:18 And thou shalt make two cherubims of gold, of beaten work shalt thou make them, in the two ends of the mercy seat. KJV
We have the four cherubim that carried / escorted the Throne of our Father:
Ezekiel 1:5 Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man. KJV
And you have the millions and millions of souls under His altar that wait impatiently for this heaven/earth age to be over:
Ref: Revelation 6:9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: KJV
Ref: Revelation 5:11 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands; KJV
And there are the host of heaven, numbers unknown, that wait for their soul to be placed within a newborn earthly body, to live the journey that we are living:
Ref: Jeremiah 33:22 As the host of heaven cannot be numbered, neither the sand of the sea measured: so will I multiply the seed of David my servant, and the Levites that minister unto me. KJV
And those souls who have completed this journey and are separated and held on the right and left sides of the gulf, those on the right, attended to by angels in supreme silence and comfort.
And here we have the six seraphim who apparently deal with or interact with us whenever our Father chooses to teach us or convey to us some information.
That’s a glimpse of the world in which our Father lives as He sits on the Throne. These entities are closest to Him, they will never come into this world to walk in an earthly body, nor do they have to justify themselves before Him. They were created by Him to do His commands and wishes.
Isaiah 6:3 And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.
It is if you partake of it; it is if you’ll stay in His Word.
Isaiah 6:4 And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.
Smoke and clouds is a way of our Father letting us know that His presence is with us in the physical realm. We cannot look on him and live in these earthly bodies although Moses was allowed to view our Father’s hind parts, His backside:
Ref: Exodus 33:23 And I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my back parts: but my face shall not be seen. KJV
How cool is that? As Father was walking towards Moses He covered his eyes with His hand and as He walked or passed by him, He removed His hand so that Moses could only see His back parts!
When the Tabernacle was set up and the priests went into the Holy of Holies to pray and communicate with our Father, it was through a cloud being in that room that let them know that He was present among them.
A cloud covered the top of Mount Sinai for six days as Moses was up there getting the Ten Commandments.
Isaiah 6:5 Then 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.
The seraphim cover parts of themselves as a sign of humbleness to our Father and they stand in His presence. Isaiah realizes that he is but a lowly human being, one not worthy to carry the Words of our Father within his own filthy mouth…
Isaiah 6:6 Then 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:
This altar is the altar of God..
Isaiah 6:7 And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged.
This is spiritual, of course, but the act rendered Isaiah’s mouth and lips clean enough to speak the Words of our Father to Judah
Isaiah 6:8 Also 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.
If you had a clear-cut chance, would you raise your hand and say:
“Here I am. I’ll do it, Lord”.
Interesting, isn’t it?
The problem would be that if you don’t stay close to Him, through prayer and reading and studying His Word, He probably wouldn’t even try to speak to you. If you don’t care about Him, why should He care about you?
Boy, what an opportunity would be missed. A chance of a lifetime…..gone by the wayside.
Did you notice that little word us in that verse? That would be our Father and those around Him. Who would that be? Probably those that we talked about earlier in this chapter. The Host of Heaven.
Isaiah 6:9 And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not.
Isaiah is going to carry and speak the Word of the Lord to Judah but they are not going to understand what He’s saying. They’ll probably go [ huh?] or [ what? ]. They’ll hear the words but it won’t make any sense to them.
Isaiah 6:10 Make 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.
Making the heart of this people fat, in this instance, means that it is full, Isaiah could say no more, they are filled to the brim but they won’t understand or comprehend.
Why would the Father do that? We’ve studied this situation before in another place in His Word. He purposely took away their understanding of the words.
Isaiah 6:11 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,
When is that going to happen? On the Lord’s Day. The first day of the Millennium. There are no men and women any longer, as we used to know them, we’ve all lost our earthly bodies and are now in our spiritual bodies And in the Millennium the truth will be known to everyone.
This is the cloak of innocency that our Father puts on some people to protect them. From what? From being accountable. A sin committed in ignorance is not a sin. But once you have eyes that see and ears that hear, if you now know the difference between the false and the true Messiah, then there is no excuse for worshipping the false one after that.
And if you do it’s coming awful close to committing the unforgivable sin.
When you plant a seed, when you share a moment of truth with someone, you’re supposed to let it go at that. You did your job. You planted. Now it’s up to the Father to do something with that seed and that person. It’s not up to you to take it any further.
The articles and lectures that I write for this website are all that I do. I write it; I post it; hopefully, someone will read it and perhaps a seed will be planted but as far as pursuing it any further than that, that’s not my job. That’s the Father’s job.
I’ll answer questions if people ask them, I’ll explain in more detail if I’m capable of doing that but I won’t try to force you to believe anything that you don’t want to believe.
I don’t wonder about it, I don’t pray about it, I don’t worry about it. I present the truth as accurately as I possibly can and that’s the end of it, for my part.
Father made some of these people deaf and blind to His Word, He can heal them if He so chooses. It could be that if they understood the truth of His Word in this life it may somehow put them in danger of their soul being lost forever. The only thing I’m sure of is that when the Millennium begins we will all understand the truth of His Word WITHOUT any danger to us.
What about this word desolate? The context of the verse seems to support the use of this word but is there more to it, is there a hidden truth behind this word desolate? This should have been translated DESOLATOR. And who is the desolator? Satan/Antichrist. Let’s read it from Matthew:
Ref: Matthew 24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) KJV
Even here the translation is not just weak, it is flat out wrong. Desolation is a condition. DESOLATOR is an entity in a spiritual body. Where is this holy place? Mount Zion. Where will Satan be standing when he portrays himself and the messiah to the entire world? Mount Zion.
Who, therefore, is the DESALATOR? Satan in his role as the Antichrist. The son of perdition.
Isaiah 6:12 And the Lord have removed men far away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land.
The forsaking is done by the people of the world, not by our Father. They didn’t take the time to read and study the Scriptures for themselves, they let some idiot, who probably knows less about the Bible than many of the people listening to him, feed them a bunch of lies about the great rapture, telling them that they don’t need to take the time to understand His Word because they’re going to fly out of here.
The forsaking is done through the act of Apostasy. Since the false messiah shows up on Mount Zion five months before the true Messiah, they will mistakenly transfer their belief in the true Christ over to the false Christ and have now forsaken the truth and that puts their soul in grave danger.
Many souls will not survive. Many souls will not see the error of their beliefs. Many souls will walk into the Lake of Fire with Satan, scratching their heads, and wondering why the true Messiah is going there as well. Believing the lie right up to the very end of their existence.
Isaiah 6:13 But 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. KJV
We’re talking about His Election here. And they shall return, and be as strong as an oak tree and they are called the holy seed. And this word substance will add validity to it all:
Substance -- OT:4678 matstsebeth (mats-tseh'-beth); from OT:5324; something stationary, i.e. a monumental stone; also the stock of a tree:
His Election are called a monumental stone. A rock. They are immovable in their beliefs. They stood with our Father back in the first heaven/earth age. No one soul is favored above another by our Father but when works are considered, that’s where the difference between souls becomes apparent and back in the first heaven/earth age, it was the works that made these souls stand out and stand beside our Father when Lucifer began his quest to sit on the Mercy Seat. The reason that we’re in earthly bodies today.
His Election will be the ones that are brought up before the councils of Satan/Antichrist during his tribulation and they will allow the Holy Spirit to speak through them.
What a time to be living and what a tragedy it is for those who don’t have a clue as to what’s happening around them spiritually.
