Even the seraphim, the greatest beings, bow down to our holy God

“Great theologians and the prophets of the Bible are quick to explain that they did not see the essence of God, but pieces of His glory,” explained Paul Washer. John 1:18 says, ‘No one has ever seen God.’

John Calvin says that the prophets of old saw things associated with God: His throne and His robe.  What Isaiah saw was enough to make the seraphim – the greatest of all created beings – bow down to God.

“The tiny, miniscule, fraction of a vison of the glory of God that Isaiah glimpsed was enough to disintegrate the heart and the mind of any man,” said Washer.  “When the prophet Isaiah comes into the presence of God, he declares himself to be nothing.”

 “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.” (Isaiah 6:5)
