VERSES: “1 In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled the temple. 2 Above him were seraphim, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. 3 And they were calling to one another: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.” 4 At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke.” — Isaiah 6:1-4
The seraphim who were above the throne were there in attendance, not superiority. They are different from the cherubim; they are the fiery guardians of the holiness of the Lord. They have certain human features: Their faces were covered in awe. They didn’t dare to gaze at God’s glory. Their feet were also covered, in acknowledgment of their lowliness of their glorious service. The third set of wings kept them keeping aloft over the throne. The verb tense that is used here indicates an continuous, ongoing service.
What a beautiful gift Isaiah was given, to actually get this little glimpse of heaven. How amazing it must be!
PLEASE PRAY WITH ME: Blessed LORD, my GOD, how wonderful You are. Your creation is beyond our understanding and Your glory is beyond our imagination. Lord, we thank you for this verse where we have a glimpse of Your heavenly realm. Thank you for the mighty seraphim who stand in reverence to Your majesty. And thank you, above all, for loving me — your lowly and humble servant. You accept my faulty ways and yet show amazing grace. Abba, I stand in awe of You as You have made the ultimate sacrifice to save me. In the Holy name of Your Son, Jesus Christ. AMEN.
GOD BLESS YOU.
