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.
