How was Isaiah called by God?

He became acutely aware of God's need for a message to the people of Israel, and despite his own sense of inadequacy, he offered himself in God's service: "Here I am! Send me a message." As a result, he was tasked with giving voice to the heavenly message. He is called both an herald and a prophet.

Isiah was a famous prophet who lived around 700 B.C. He is best known for his prophetic oracles that were written down by other people and called the Book of Isaias. However, it is Isiah who is credited with creating many of the prophecies in the book.

In addition to being a prophet, Isiah was also a priest and a king during his lifetime. He is regarded as one of the greatest prophets in Jewish history. His messages are considered direct orders from God and are often used by today's Jews to show that God still cares for his people after thousands of years.

God used Isaiah to speak about important issues such as war, judgment, and faith during his time. Although most of what we know about Isaiah comes from other people, it is believed that some of his words may have been spoken directly to King Ahaz of Judah when he was facing threats from Syria and Assyria.

Why did Isaiah want to be a messenger for God?

According to this narrative, he "saw" God and was awestruck by the heavenly splendor and sanctity. He became painfully aware of God's need for a message to the people of Israel, and despite his own sense of inadequacy, he offered himself to God's service: "Here am I! Send me."

He probably felt that as a member of an important priestly family, he could carry messages for God and influence people with his preaching. Perhaps he thought that by doing so, he could atone for the sins of his family.

The Bible does not tell us what kind of response he expected to get from God when he made this offer. But we can assume that since God had chosen him, he must have had some purpose in mind for him. This may have been why Isaiah asked to be sent on a mission for God. It may also have been why his request was accepted. As far as we know, he never revealed anything about his experience while serving God as a messenger.

We can only speculate about what kind of effect Isaiah's preaching had on its audience. But it seems clear that it had a profound impact on him too. He realized that there were serious problems between God and his people that needed to be resolved. This caused him to feel guilty and ashamed of their sins; yet at the same time, it also gave him hope that they could be restored to God.

Why did God appear to Isaiah?

The vision of Isaiah According to this narrative, he "saw" God and was awestruck by the heavenly splendor and sanctity.

God chose him because he was ready to serve him. Isaiah had an understanding of spiritual things that no other prophet had at that time. He saw things as they really were from God's perspective instead of viewing them through the lens of his own culture. This gave him insight into God's plans that no one else knew about. Also, he had a spirit of prophecy that spoke through him (see below).

As we look at the life of Isaiah, we see that he lived during the reigns of Uzziah and Jotham in Judah. Both of these kings were extremely bad leaders who allowed their countries to come under judgment because they were worshiping pagan gods. However, Isaiah managed to keep warning the people even though he was being persecuted by their government.

God used Isaiah to tell the people what would happen if they continued down this path of sin. Even though the nation as a whole did not heed his warnings, there were many individuals who did. Therefore, God rewarded those who listened to Isaiah by allowing him to predict their future victory over Babylonian invaders and also by giving him instructions on how to pray for their country.
