Holy, Holy, Holy!
Holy, Holy, Holy!
"In the year that king Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and his train filled the temple.
Above him stood the seraphim: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.
And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is Jehovah of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.
And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.
Then said I, 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 mine eyes have seen the King, Jehovah of hosts." (Isaiah 6:1-5)
In Isaiah's vision and encounter with Jehovah, the omniscient majesty and holiness of The Lord of Hosts completely overcame him...left him feeling "undone" and acutely aware of how unholy he was in his own humanity.
Let us not just be aware of the presence of our God...but seriously acknowledge and cherish that He Is Holy, Holy, Holy - an infinitely Holy Trinity beyond anything else in existence!
Let us praise, honor, glorify and worship Him in this manner...for He Is Holy, Holy, Holy...He Is high and lifted up...and He Is Worthy!
