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.
In this verse and in the verses that follow we know the approximate time and we know the place. What we do not learn from this is a description of the Lord. We learn that He was sitting upon a throne which was high and lifted up, and that His train (or glory) filled the temple.
In the Book of Daniel, we read,
“I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire. A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand, thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened. Daniel 7:9-10
In the book of Revelation, we read,
“I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,
saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, what you see, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.
And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;
and in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.
His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;
and his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.
And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.
And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, fear not; I am the first and the last: Revelation 1:10-17.
What Would Your Response Be?
Notice the response of Isaiah: he said, “Woe is me! for I am undone.” Then, what about Daniel? He said, “I Daniel was grieved in my spirit in the midst of my body.” And John; “I fell at feet as dead.” What do you think your response would be if you had such an encounter with Almighty God? One thing for sure, we would never be the same. What do you think?
