7 And he
laid [naga`] it upon my mouth, [peh] and
said, ['amar] Lo, this hath touched [naga`] thy lips; [saphah] and
thine iniquity [`avon] is taken away, [cuwr] and thy sin [chatta'ah]
purged. [kaphar] KJV-Interlinear
7 And he
touched my mouth with it and said, "Behold, this has touched your lips;
and your iniquity is taken away, and your sin is forgiven." NASB
The coal that the angel carried, was from the alter of sacrifice. Sacrifice was the teaching medium for instruction in the work of the Messiah in paying the price for sin and thus making atonement for that sin.
To purge, 'kaphar,' means to atone, to cover, to overlay, to expiate, to pardon, to forgive.
It is not the coal, not the touch, not the angel to purges the sin, but the alter from which the coal came, which brought about the removal of sin as a factor in securing eternal life.
The touching, which was a light touching, represents the faith in allowing that hot coal from causing harm, and thus the faith in the work of the alter in securing salvation and the removal of sin. Normally a hot coal touched to the lips which are typically very sensitive, would cause a burn. This coal did not burn. Isaiah trusted or had faith that there would be no harm.
So, the alter or Gods work, brought about the covering and removal of sin, or uncleanness from the life of Isaiah, just as it removes all filth from the lives of everyone who believes in Christ. Christ being the living savior and messiah who placed himself upon that alter, the cross, and paid the debt caused by sin and thus redeeming us into freedom.
