“Meeting a Holy God” is a sermon I preached at Preakness Valley United Reformed Church in Wayne, NJ, on June 26, 2011. The text is Isaiah 6.
Here is the MP3 audio (32:56, 30.2MB), and an excerpt:
Isaiah cries out, “Woe is me!” Now, in the previous chapter, a poetic oracle, Isaiah said six times, “Woe to you,” condemning those who oppressed the poor, and disregarded the Law of God, and lived lives of debauchery. The full revelation of YHWH’s holiness has made Isaiah realize—I am just as unclean as these people to whom I preach. I am a sinner. I am unfit to stand before a holy God.

Really enjoyed the sermon. This chapter has always been one of my favorites in Scripture.
Thanks, Thomas. I’ll be finishing the mini-series at PVURC on July 31: AM service will likely be from Hebrews, and PM will be Isaiah 7. Hmm, how should I deal with, “And the virgin will be with child”?
