Isaiah is called the Messianic Prophet because the Lord gave him so many powerful Prophecies about the coming of the Messiah, Jesus Christ. His active ministry took place from about 745 B.C. to 695 B.C. The New Testament says that Isaiah spoke of the Glory of Jesus Christ.“These things said Esaias, when he saw his glory, and spake of him.”(John 12:41). “In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him were seraphim, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. And they were calling to one another:“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty;the whole earth is full of his glory.” At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke.”Woe to me!” I cried. “I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the Lord Almighty.”Then one of the seraphim 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.”Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.”( Isaiah 6:1-8). This passage of scripture is referred to as “Isaiah’s Commission” from the Lord. Will you say to Jesus,” Here Am I , send me?” Rabbinic tradition has it that Isaiah’s father, Amoz, (not Amos the Prophet) was a brother of King Amaziah. This would make Isaiah first cousin of King Uzziah, and grandson of King Joash, and thus of Royal Blood ,a man of the palace. Isaiah lived in the reigns, of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah. He was a Prophet of the southern kingdom, Judah, at the time when the northern kingdom,Israel, was destroyed by the Assyrians. His Martyrdom. A tradition, in the Talmud, which was accepted as authentic by many early Church Fathers, states that Isaiah resisted Manasseh’s idolatrous decrees, and was fastened between two planks, and “sawn asunder,” thus suffering a most horrible death.This is thought to be referred to in (Hebrew 11:37) “they were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented;”.

I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
