Time with God - June 15, 2016

Isaiah 6:1

“In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train of his robe filled the temple.”(Please read vv.1-5 again)

Jesus Christ is the highest authority in this universe!

“I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne.”In Isaiah’s vision of the Lord, the Lord wasn’t battling for authority; he wasn’t struggling over the throne. No, he was sitting in absolute power and authority over all things.

In John 12:41, the Apostle John quotes a verse from later in this chapter of Isaiah and clearly states that it was Jesus that Isaiah saw on the throne. Jesus Himself said to the disciples, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me” (Matthew 28:18).

In Ephesians 1:20-23, the Apostle Paul declares that God the Father “raised him [Jesus] from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come.  And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.”

Today I encourage you to physically get on your knees before Jesus Christ and speak with the One who has all authority in heaven and on earth.
