5 God’s Great Missionaries Our Goal {5} It would be a mistake this quarter to study these biblical agents as interesting historical figures and leave it at that. Rather, we need to catch the inspiration of their lives and focus on our mission to this dying world.

6 God’s Great Missionaries Lesson 13, September 27 God’s Great Missionaries Lesson 13, September 27

7 “Here Am I! Send Me”: The Prophet Isaiah Key Text I SAIAH 6:8 NKJV “ Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: ‘Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?’ Then I said, ‘Here am I! Send me’.”

8 “Here Am I! Send Me”: The Prophet Isaiah Initial Words {163} A central part of Isaiah’s mission was to reform the southern kingdom of Judah. But Isaiah’s mission extended further. He envisioned a day when Judah’s mission would be to represent God to the world. Not until Jesus’ ministry, and the apostles’ ministry, do we see this vision put into action, a vision that we are called to be part of.

9 “Here Am I! Send Me”: The Prophet Isaiah Quick Look 1. A New Perspective: Of God (Isaiah 6:1-4) 2. A New Perspective: Of Self (Isaiah 6:5-7) 3. A New Perspective: Of Mission (Isaiah 6:8, 9)

10 “Here Am I! Send Me”: The Prophet Isaiah 1. A New Perspective: Of God I SAIAH 6:1-4 NKJV “ In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple. Above it stood seraphim…. And one cried to another and said: ‘Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory!’ ”

11 1. A New Perspective: Of God Uncertain Times {169} Isaiah’s encounter with God comes at a time of personal and national insecurity. “When perils encompass God’s people … God calls them to look up to Him, seated on His throne and directing in the affairs of heaven and earth, in order that they may take hope and courage.” The SDA Bible Comm 4:128

12 1. A New Perspective: Of God Seeing God {164} In his vision of God’s throne, Isaiah is treated to an amazing spectacle. He sees the train of God’s robe filling the temple and six-winged flying beings called seraphim. He hears them calling to each other in praise to God. Their voices must have been powerful, because they caused the doorposts to shake and the temple was filled with smoke.

13 1. A New Perspective: Of God Seeing God {169} The terrifying grandeur of Isaiah’s vision reveals a God with incomparable power and majesty. The imagery emphasizes God’s absolute transcendence, His holiness. Why did the angels cry “holy” and not “love”? Could it be that “holiness” defines every other part of God’s character: His love is a holy love; His power is a holy power?

14 “Here Am I! Send Me”: The Prophet Isaiah 2. A New Perspective: Of Self I SAIAH 6:5-7 NKJV “ Then I said: ‘Woe is me, for I am undone! Because I am a man of unclean lips, … for my eyes have seen the King, the L ORD of hosts.’ Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a live coal…. And he touched my mouth with it, and said, … ‘Your iniquity is taken away, and your sins purged.’ ”

15 2. A New Perspective: Of Self “Your Sin Purged” {169} Why does the angel touch Isaiah’s mouth to represent his redemption? Why are the lips, tongue, or mouth so often used as symbols in the Scripture to indicate the state of the heart? (Prov 12:13, 14; Matt 15:8-10; James 3:6) Isaiah’s reaction to the holiness of God is an overwhelming sense of his own unworthiness.

16 2. A New Perspective: Of Self “Your Sin Purged” {166} The Hebrew word translated purged comes from the root qaphar, commonly translated in the OT as “atone” or “atonement.” Isaiah, without his sin being purged or covered (qaphar also mean covered) would not have been able to do anything for the Lord. He had to be made right with God first; only then could the Lord use him.

17 “Here Am I! Send Me”: The Prophet Isaiah 3. A New Perspective: Of Mission I SAIAH 6:8 NKJV “ Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: ‘Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?’ Then I said, ‘Here am I! Send me.’ ”

18 3. A New Perspective: Of Mission “Here Am I! Send Me” {168} He immediately responds. Notice that Isaiah answers the call before he knows the details of the assignment. Isaiah does not respond because he knows that he will do a good job. And he does not respond because it is a task that appeals to him.

19 3. A New Perspective: Of Mission “Here Am I! Send Me” {168} Isaiah responds because he knows that although he is unworthy, God is worthy. Although he is powerless, God is all-powerful. Although it may not be a mission he would have chosen for himself, it is a mission God has chosen.

20 “Here Am I! Send Me”: The Prophet Isaiah Final Words {172} Isaiah’s mission was far larger than just reforming Judah. He also cast a vision of Jerusalem as a light on a hill, a witness to all nations about the one true God, and His commandments: “the mountain of the Lord’s temple will be established … and all nations will stream to it” (Isaiah 2:2).
