Isaiah Chp. 6, vs.s 11 through 13.
Then I said, "Lord, how long?"...He answered, "Until cities are devastated and without inhabitant, houses are without people, and the land is utterly desolate, and foresakedness [ [b]Apostasy[/b]] will be great.
"Yet there will be a tenth portion in it, and it will be subject to burning, like a terebinth or an oak...whose stump remains when it is felled'
[b]"THE HOLY SEED IS IT'S STUMP!"[/b]
The Holy seed is the remnant. These must be baptized with the Holy Spirit , and FIRE. The fire burns them out of sin and impurities, to become holy.
This Word will continue until the end of this age, for the Lord has spoken it. He has always had a persecuted and rejected remnant. These are they of Hebrews 11, of whom the "World was not worthy". Simply those who learned to live by faith in the Son of God's sacrifice, and to love Him with all of their hearts, and their neighbor as their selves.
I believe that this walk is primarily a secret and lonely walk with God, with Jesus's Lordship manifested in all expressions in life, before Him, not men. [not necessarily away from men, or the Church.]
[b]This, I believe is the Believing part.[/b]
I don't like the translation of the word "believing" for in our culture, we believe withour mind.[ sign a contract, make a purchase.] The Biblical meaning of Believing implies a dependence and trust filled with devotion, as an infant may cling to his mother.
Faith must be lived, not just thought out.
