Isaiah 6:6-7 The Cleansing of Isaiah’s Mouth.

Isa 6:6 Then one of the angels flew to me. In his hand was a burning coal that he had taken from the altar with tongs.
Isa 6:7 He touched my mouth with it and said, “This has touched your lips. Your guilt has been taken away, and your sin has been forgiven.”

Isa 6:6 Then one of the angels flew to me. In his hand was a burning coal that he had taken from the altar with tongs.

This Holy Seraph flew to Isaiah with this burning coal in tongs. He did not touch the coal with his hands. This was Holy Cleansing fire, not just any old starnge fire.

Isa 6:7 He touched my mouth with it and said, “This has touched your lips. Your guilt has been taken away, and your sin has been forgiven.”

He touched my mouth with it….  The Bible says that the mouth is an unruly fire, who can train it? Best to keep quiet than to make a fool of your-self.

“See, This has touched your lips. Your guilt has been taken away, and your sin has been forgiven.”

Before Isaiah can begin His Prophetic Ministry to Jerusalem and Judah he needed cleansing from unclean lips.

Cleansing is all part of Commissioning for Service as a prophet to the nations.

The Live coal off the Altar speaks of the fire of Sacrifice. Without the shedding of Blood their is no forgiveness of sins. Christ is our Passover Lamb sacrificed on the fiery altar of Calvary to atone for our sins.

The Seraph brings the Live Coal with the tongs.
