We all have portions of Scripture and impressions of God that really impact the way we think, live, and interpret the world around us. Isaiah is a good biblical example of this idea. In Isaiah chapter 6, he was called by God to be a messenger; a prophet. Read the passage below and take note of the picture of God’s holiness (v. 1-4), and Isaiah’s reaction (v. 5).
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. 2 Above him stood the seraphim. Each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. 3 And one called to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory!” 4 And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who called, and the house was filled with smoke. 5 And I said: “Woe is me! For I am lost; for 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!” 6 Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a burning coal that he had taken with tongs from the altar. 7 And he touched my mouth and said: “Behold, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away, and your sin atoned for.”8 And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here I am! Send me.” Isaiah 6: 1-8 ESV
God knows me. He knows that if He gives me a year to complete a project that should only take six months, I will never get it done. He also knows that if He gives me six months to do a job that should take a year, I'll grind it out and get 'er done. That in mind, is it any surprise that He gave me 6 months to start our Bible College/School of Ministry?
We are making great progress. Now, all we need is money and students. Money is starting to trickle in as wonderful people begin to catch our crowdfunding vision, and our students are being prepared by the Holy Spirit to join us in September. I am praying for them. I hope you are too. This is shaping up to be a pretty cool adventure!
