Who Will Go?

These notes accompany the sermon found here.

Introduction: 

  • Today’s Text:  Isaiah 6
  • Sermon series: Let Us Reason Together
  • Isaiah prophesied approximately 740-681 BC. His book is not Chronological.  It is mostly poetic, partially narrative and often repeats itself, all with good purpose.
  • His purpose: To reveal God’s plans for Judah (the Southern Kingdom), and His ultimate plans for redemption for Israel and all mankind.

The Lord calls

  • See Isaiah 6:1, 65:12, 66:4; Jeremiah 7:13; Matthew 23:37; John 6:44, 16:8-10.

‌The Lord atones

  • See Isaiah 6:5; Exodus 33:20; Genesis 32:30; Deuteronomy 5:24; Judges 6:22-23, 13:22; 2 Corinthians 1:20; Romans 15:8; Hebrews 11:13-16.

The Lord speaks

  • See Isaiah 6:9-13; Hebrews 1:1-3; Numbers 12:6-8; Joel 2:28; Acts 2:17-18; Ephesians 2:20; John 20:30-31, 17:20; 2 Timothy 3:16.

The Lord accomplishes

  • See Isaiah 6:9-13, 55:11, 40:8. Note Isaiah 6:9-10 is cited in Matthew 13:14-15; Mark 4:12; Luke 8:10; Acts 28:26-27; John 12:40.  See also Matthew 24:34-35; John 1:1-3, 1:14.
  • The Holy Seed – the Remnant – is fulfilled by Jesus Christ. See Isaiah 6:13, 11:1, 1:9; Romans 9:29 (Quoting Isaiah 1:9); Genesis 3:15; Galatians 3:16; and by those who are His body, the church, Romans 11:5. ‌

Encouragements:

  • If God has called you to himself, He has atoned for your sins and appointed you to His service.
  • God has called you into the work of his Word (Matthew 28:18-20), and the work of His word will have success (Isaiah 55:11).
  • The teachings found in Isaiah are as relevant to today’s world as they were to Judah over 2500 years ago (2 Timothy 3:16).
