Day 15: Isaiah 6
We’re continuing in this 40 day fast, this season leading up to Pentecost. I believe we’re to really give ourselves to an internal work of the Holy Spirit, not just an external thing that we are praying for. For worldwide harvest, for revival, for Pentecost. We need an inward change for our own hearts. The bible says, that David said, “I afflicted my soul with fasting.” I humbled my soul. That soulish part of our lives that demand pleasure, that demand entertainment. Listen, God wants to deliver us to find satisfactions that are greater than the satisfactions of this world. In Jeremiah, he said, “oh, I am so appalled that you’ve forsaken the fountains of living waters and you’ve hewn for yourself cisterns that could hold no water”. We have rejected the springs. Even David said, “All my fountains are in You!’
I pray this all the time, ‘could I be completely satisfied with the rivers of God’s pleasures?’ “At His right hand are pleasures forevermore.” One of the passages on my heart right after these elections that took place. In my soul, maybe not yours, I had deep disappointment, we were praying, we believed we were going to see some major breakthroughs. And God led me to this passage in Isaiah 6. There Isaiah is praying, Uzziah a great King that was a king over Israel for 56 years, one of the highest seasons of prosperity in Israel’s history and yet something was wrong in Israel. They were filled with prosperity, but they had lost their fire for Yahweh. Isaiah is crying to God and the Lord appears to him and it says. “In the year King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord.” I think when men run out of answers, this us when God reveals himself. He is our only help. “In the year King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord high and lifted up.” This is what I’m praying, out of this covid-season, out of these years of darkness, out of this distress, there is some that is going to come to heaven. I’m praying, “Let us see the Lord high and lifted up.” What if we prayed for 40 days, “unveil yourself! In the days of covid, social unrest, unveil Yourself.” When there is no answer from kings or politics, Lord we want to see you high and lifted up. The year king Uzziah died I saw the Lord high and lifted up. His train filled the temple. He seized the glory of God. And there in this context, he said an Angel took a coal from the fire and put the coal to his lips. And he says “I’d live among a people of unclean lips and he put a coal to his lips and he cleansed his lips, and then he says “Who shall go for Me? And who shall I send?” And then Isaiah says, “Here am I, send me.”
It’s interesting what he says there. What was the answer to the sending? Why was He calling him and sending him. He says he was going to send him to the Jewish peoples who cannot hear and cannot see. I believe this Yeshua Fast is being given to us for a season that were going to be ‘sent’, because it’s now time for their eyes to see and their ears to be opened. And in this 40 days, I believe there’s a preparation. I’m asking God, to put a coal to where sin has held me bound. I want a fire in my eyes, a fire on my lips, a fire to be touching my ears what I listen to, a fire to my heart, because I’ve seen the Lord. T There’s this deep preparation of a deep sealing and cleansing. What if God over this 40 days would begin to visit people with a revelation of Jesus. To seal their heart with an inward fire and out of that He says, “Who will go for me to the Jewish peoples? Who will go for me to the unreached?” And we’ll say, “Here am I, send me.” Because it’s time for the great awakening, the unveiling of Yeshua, to the Jewish peoples. Let’s prepare our hearts and then dare to believe that God is going to hurl forth laborers to the lost sheep of the House of Israel.
