December 3 – Holy Seed

 

3.  Isaiah 6:13 – Holy Seed

 

In a day of judgment, Isaiah saw the seeds of hope – Christ is that Seed.  How often did he speak of the word of God being a seed? (Matthew 13)

 

 

 

And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here I am! Send me.” And he said, “Go, and say to this people:

 

    “ ‘Keep on hearing, but do not understand;

 

       keep on seeing, but do not perceive.’

 

10    Make the heart of this people dull,

 

and their ears heavy,

 

and blind their eyes;

 

       lest they see with their eyes,

 

and hear with their ears,

 

       and understand with their hearts,

 

and turn and be healed.”

 

11    Then I said, “How long, O Lord?”

 

       And he said:

 

       “Until cities lie waste

 

without inhabitant,

 

       and houses without people,

 

and the land is a desolate waste,

 

12    and the Lord removes people far away,

 

and the forsaken places are many in the midst of the land.

 

13    And though a tenth remain in it,

 

it will be burned again,

 

       like a terebinth or an oak,

 

whose stump remains

 

when it is felled.”

 

       The holy seed is its stump.
