Now more than ever before, in our spiritually confused society, we need a fresh glimpse of the one true God, as Isaiah saw in Isaiah 6.
“In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple…” (Isaiah 6:1).
First, He is the triune God, the one God who reveals Himself to us in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
The doctrine of the Trinity is what makes our faith different from all other faiths. It is not contradictory to logic; it is beyond logic. There’s evidence of the Trinity in nature, the creation story and all throughout Scripture.
Not only is the one true God the triune God—He is also the holy God.
“Above it stood seraphim; each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. And one cried to another and said: ‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory!’” (Isaiah 6:2-3).
Most of us have yet to see the holiness of God. God is holy, and He is forever against sin; He will punish it, if not now, then later.
Adrian Rogers says, “You don’t break the Ten Commandments: they stand. You are broken on the Ten Commandments. A man who tries to break God’s law is defeated before he starts.”
Finally, the one true God is also the saving God.
“‘Woe is me, for I am undone! Because I am a man of unclean lips, And I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; For my eyes have seen the King, The Lord of hosts.’ Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a live coal which he had taken with the tongs from the altar. And he touched my mouth with it, and said: ‘Behold, this has touched your lips; Your iniquity is taken away, And your sin purged’” (Isaiah 6:5-7).
Through the Holy Trinity, we have our salvation. The triune, holy, saving God is a God of love, grace, and forgiveness.
It’s not enough to simply accept the intellectual premise of the saving Holy Trinity. Give your heart to God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
Adrianisms: “Forced religion is an abomination to Almighty God.”
“I wouldn’t have any confidence in a God I could understand.”
“We don’t worship three gods; we worship one God who reveals Himself to us in three persons.”
“You don’t break the Ten Commandments: they stand. You are broken on the Ten Commandments. A man who tries to break God’s law is defeated before he starts.”
“The hope of America is not in the White House; it is in the church house. The hope of the world is not America; it’s God.”
“The answer to the New Age is the new birth.”
Now more than ever before, in our spiritually confused society, we need a fresh glimpse of the one true God. In this message, Adrian Rogers shares Isaiah’s vision in Isaiah 6 to reveal three things about the one true God.
