Your Kingdom Come, Part II
Our Father in Heaven, hallowed be Your name. Matthew 6:9
The prophet Isaiah saw in a vision the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple with the Seraphim attending Him in glory. I have only seen the shekinah glory of the Lord once in my thirty five years with Him and all I could do was cry!
No flesh can withstand the glorious presence of the Lord and if He was in most of our services people would be on their faces crying out for mercy because He is holy and our deeds would be exposed before Him. Isaiah was a man of God, a holy prophet of the Lord, but when he stood before the throne he cried out and said, "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 my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts."
When we attempt to enter the throne of the Most High, we must respect the fact that we are entering the holy sanctuary of the Lord of the universe, the most powerful entity and holy Father of all creation and so we as Isaiah should acknowledge our sins and transgressions and give glory to God as we approach His throne!
"Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory!" Isaiah 6:3
