Begin study:


The angel quickly retrieves a burning coal, from the alter which was present near the throne.

In the Tabernacle here on earth, there were two alters. The first represents the alter of sacrifice, the brazen alter, and stood for the salvation work of Christ on the Cross. Upon it were offered the animal sacrifices.

The second alter is the alter of incense and on it was offered various incenses representing the pleasant aroma which is the acceptance by God the Father, of the work of Christ as well as the offering of prayers of believers who have first believed in Christ.

Between the two is the brazen laver from which the priests washed their hands and other utensils of the Tabernacle. This laver represents the fellowship principle of confession, of the washing away of sins in the life of the believer. Note that even while saved, the believer still commits sins, and those sins have to be dealt with in order to enter into Gods perfect state. Thus the fellowship principle of confession or the washing away of the believers sins is required before the believer can have a relationship (a prayer relationship, a spiritual relationship) with God.

The coal to the lips of Isaiah represents his belief in Christ as savior, and second his confession, ‘I am a man of unclean lips,’ as a sinner.

The coal is the work of Christ in its entirety, from sacrifice to faith and salvation, to confession and the maintaining of ones spiritual status. Mans efforts are never allowed into heaven. Only through the work of Christ will man gain access to heaven and God.

With the touching of the hot coal, the sin is taken away (salvation) and the sin is forgiven (fellowship).

Only God can cleanse and restore.

Neither angel nor man can correct the failures (sin and death) of mankind.

The entire emphasis of life, is on the work of Christ, never on anything that you do.



End of study





Study [by instruction],

to show thyself approved [spiritually mature]

unto God,

a workman [student]

that need not be ashamed [ignorant],

rightly dividing [learning, understanding, discerning]

the word of truth [Bible doctrine].

If you can dream and not make dreams your master,

If you can think and not let thoughts narrow your views,

If you can meet triumph with disaster equally,

If you can learn and see your full meaning and purpose in life,

Then you can believe in Christ, learn Bible doctrine, and grow far beyond the potential that God has prepared for you.

These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.

And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.

To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.

The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.

But each person has to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.

Keep in the Word, Isa. 41:10.
