         “For the Lord your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God”.  Deuteronomy 4:24

The fire of God is an incredible mystery, and yet . . . for those who have ears to hear and eyes to see . . .   

Think about how awesome God is described in this passage of scripture.

        “In the year that King Uzziah died, (in a vision) I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and the skirts of His train filled the (most holy part of the) temple.   Above Him stood the seraphim; each had six wings: with two (each) covered his (own) face, and with two (each) covered his feet, and with two (each) flew.   And one cried to another and said, Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory!   And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who cried, and the house was filled with smoke.   Then said I, Woe is me!   For I am undone and ruined, 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!”  Isaiah 6:1-5  

        So many times when we read this passage we think about the seraphim.  How intriguing it is for there to be such incredible beings, but the real mystery is the one they are crying out about.  The Lord God Almighty!  The Ruler and Creator of all life!  For He is the High and Lofty One.  ONE!  There is no one else like Him!  He stands alone in the Holiness of Who He is!

Let’s continue . . .

        “Then one of the seraphs flew to me with a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with tongs from the altar.  With it he touched my mouth and said, ‘See, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away and your sin atoned for’.  ”  Isaiah 6:6-7

How can it be that the live coal from the altar did not burn Isaiah’s lips!  What could have possibly been the driving force of that live coal that could have take away Isaiah’s guilt and sin?!  It was the eternal blood of Jesus!

        “For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He (even) gave up His only “begotten” (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life.

        Imagine that Jesus was talking about Himself.  He knew Who He was.  He knew where He came from.  He knew and remembered His relationship and friendship He had with His Abba Father in Heaven.  Begotten means He came from Abba Father Himself.  Unique means there is no one else like Him, Jesus.  

        What we are talking about are eternal beings.  Father God, the Lord Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit are all eternal and Holy Beings.  Heaven is eternal.  It has an eternal altar with eternal fire on it.

If Jesus, being an eternal being, was going to make an atonement for our sins, does that atonement not cover our sins from the beginning of the eternal time of God?  Does it not stretch back to the beginning of time when God and Jesus made the plan for our atonement and salvation?  And does it not stretch forward to the end of God’s eternal time?  So that now we also can have the guilt of our sin taken away and the atonement of our sin fulfilled?  YES!

         “For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He (even) gave up His only “begotten” (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life.  For God did not send the Son into the world in order to judge (to reject, to condemn, to pass sentence on) the world, but that the world might find salvation and be made safe and sound through Him.  He who believes in Him (who clings to, trust in, relies on Him) is not judged (he who trusts in Him never comes up for judgment; for him there is no rejection, no condemnation – he incurs no damnation); but he who does not believe (cleave to, rely on, trust in Him) is judged already (he has already been convicted and has already received his sentence) because he has not believed in and trusted in the name of the only begotten Son of God.  (He is condemned for refusing to let his trust rest in Christ’s name.)”  John 3:16-18  Amplified Version
