I Saw The Lord
King Uzziah died which created confusion, confusion, financial uncertainty, idolatry manifested, Isaih was out of a job and a place to stay and Isarel was drifting away from the Lord, but Isaiah Saw The Lord……
John received a vision from the Lord and he records it here in Isaiah 6:1-8
What Happened When Isaiah Saw The Lord?
(1) ISAIAH RECEIVED A WAKE UP CALL
-he was sleeping spiritually – THE TIME OF YAWNING IS OVER…….
-it happened because of trouble
-1 Chronicles 12:32 and 1 Thess 5:1-6
***1 Thess 5:6
*Be Aware – of the times and what is going on
* Be Alert – prepare…stay close…get and keep your armor on
2 Timothy 3:1
***Know this – absolutely positively know
***we are living in the last days – the Lord is coming back soon
***The Lord is giving a loud and clear message to planet earth
(2) ISAIAH REALIZED THAT ONLY JESUS MATTERS
-Isaiah lost everything—the culture was decaying around him
-Isaiah found out that only Jesus matters
–the world is empty, temporary and earthly
-we always need Jesus – in the good times and bad times
-we need a fresh vision of Jesus
IT IS TIME TO REFOCUS
-our eyes, our finances, our priorities, our families and our lives…….
***FOCUSING ON THE LORD PRODUCES COURAGE
-focus brings along with it confidence, backbone, and being avoice for Jesus
-Be Courageous And Do Not Panic-
-the worst thing we can do in any tense situation is panic
How do we make sure that we will not panic during difficult times?
