Are we contradicting scripture?

I was recently asked about the contradiction in our doctrine in relation with scriptures. The individual thought that saying “UNTO” conflicts with what the Bible says.

In this segment, I want to search the scripture and our doctrine in order to answer the question which may seem at first glance contrary or contradictory to scriptures.

I am going to look at specific areas of scriptures relating to this subject matter, as well as the Celestial Hymn and also the constitution of the church.

At the end, I hope with an understanding heart and the spirit of God, we will be able to see why we do the things we do and see that there are no conflicts between Scripture and the CCC doctrine.

Firstly, let’s examine the following;
Isaiah 6:1-5 KJV
[1] In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.
[2] Above it stood the seraphim: each one had six wings; with twain, he covered his face, and with twain, he covered his feet, and with twain, he did fly.
[3] And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.
[4] And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.
[5] Then said I, 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 mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts.

In the passage above, we can see that Isaiah was given the grace to see God “HIGH” in Heaven. The heavens opened and he “SAW” God in the fullness of his glory. His vision was not a dream but physical. He (Isaiah) was in the Earth “BELOW”.

Isaiah was shown angels who are “PURE & HOLY” in the “PRESENCE” of God adorning him with worship.

As they are holy, this is about “Maturity” and because the “Stage” they are in is in the very presence of God, “IS” is appropriate as this is attestation that the one before them is the Almighty.

Isaiah is not saying “Holy is the……”. He is merely reporting what he is seeing in heaven.

In essence, this is a demonstration of the stage that humanity has to achieve in order to grace the physical presence of God.

We can see from Isaiah’s account as the representative of mankind in this picture, that even he affirms that he is unholy than those before God. However, he acknowledges that grace has been given unto him “Eyes” to see God even though his “mouth” is unclean. This means he’s mortal and hasn’t achieved sainthood yet.
