Isaiah’s Vision of Heaven




Isaiah Chapter 6 verse 1a


In the year that king Uzziah died…




Sets the time frame of when this vision occurred in his (Isaiah’s) lifetime.

Uzziah died 38 years before the 10-tribe nation of Israel was taken captive (chronicled in 2 Kings 17).



Isaiah Chapter 6 verse 1b


… I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.




Like Daniel in Chapter 10, Ezekiel in Chapter 1 and John in his Revelation Chapter 1.  Isaiah has a vision of the Lord and His Throne.  How many “witnesses” are required before man believes in the throne of God?



Isaiah Chapter 6 verse 2-7


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.


And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory. And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.


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.


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: 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.




“twain” = both

The Seraphims in Heaven.



Isaiah Chapter 6 verse 8-13


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.


And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not.


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.


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.


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.




“Who will go for us?” - “us” being the three person Godhead.


Man hears but does not understand, sees but does not perceive.


Understanding comes from the heart.


How long does this message need to go on?  Until the point in time when there is a GREAT FORSAKING IN THE LAND.


Even at that point there will still be a remnant that returns to the Lord!
