As ISAIAH: “LIVE A LIFE OF DEDICATION TO GOD WITH FAITH & VISION,” Isaiah 6: 8b: “Here am I send me.”

EXCERPT: ARE PROPHETS AND HISTORIANS INSPIRED BY GOD?
Peace be unto you. The visionaries’ today look as did Isaiah through spiritual eyes. They look back, today and beyond. What do they see? Will the Prophets of Old allow us to see Heaven? This man became a critical thinker by relying on his on-going conversion to allow him to see. He thus looked back and stepped into his destiny. Therefore his heart embraced his destiny. Meanwhile his flesh was predestined but his heart remembered David. He thus acted on free-will.
Isaiah 6: 1 “In the year that king Uzziah died I also saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.”
The Lord Is Good He is Also Great
When the corrupt king died as he was
stricken with the leprosy this great prophet
rose up to write and talk looking back
then and beyond.
Meanwhile we can see him standing there as
a prince of prophets with Jesus on his
mind as he told them then and now
of the real King.
He picked up the telescope but God fixed
the sight. He might look far off and come
back to the time he lived. He also may know
little of what he wrote.
The teachers and writers of the New Testament
would interpret many of his thoughts. As this is
the role of the true Prophet. But what of the
Historian? Especially those of today.
Can we see God through the eyes of Isaiah?
Can we see the Black Experience and the
times of all of humankind in knowing God?
“I saw,” so said the Prophet.
This same Prophet also noted the train and
robe of the Lord. As He was high and lifted
up. His glory fills our hearts and minds and
motivates the Historians the Prophets to verse and prose.
Peace and Paradise,
