In the scripture used for this writing, it is said that the Holy Seed will be the substance. Substance means the real physical matter of which a person or thing consists and which has a tangible, solid presence. By this definition, the Holy Seed are the real physical, tangible, and solid presence of the Lord of hosts. The others amidst the Holy Seed, who should of been a part of the Holy Seed, actually were rebellious to the Word of God. Their hearts were hardened against the love of the Living God, they turned a deaf ear to the Word of God, their eyes could not open to see God, and consequently they could not be healed in their spirit and soul! Their hearts were attached to the love of the kingdom of this world, their ears were fixed on hearing Satan’s deceptions, and their sight was fixed on the lusts of the eyes. In these days, where the spirit of the anti-Christ is becoming more intense, it is said to us; Today if you will hear His voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.”
No matter how many times the Word of the Lord is presented to many within the congregation of counterfeit believers, they become more hardened against it. They are engrossed into the ways of the world, lusts of the flesh, and snatched firmly into Satan’s claws. They have turned their hearts away from the Message of what Christ has done for them at the Cross. Those reprobates and counterfeits will be utterly desolated. They will be nothing more than a stump of a cut down tree., like many Churches are today! BUT, the faithful of the Holy Seed would be the substance of the Lord of hosts, like a sprig sprouting from the stump of an Oak Tree! From that sprig would come the Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ who gave His life on the Cross for the whosoever. From the stump and the sprig we know that Jesus Christ is coming soon!
Rebellious people who harden their hearts, refuse to hear, and close their eyes to the Living God, the Message of Cross, and the Holy Ghost still need to hear the Word of God. The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost asks the question, “Who will go for Us?” Will we be able to say, “Here am I; send me.” The message is a simple one; tell them that they hear of what Christ has done for them on the Cross, but they don’t understand; they see what Christ Jesus has done within the heart of others, but they are not perceiving. The simple message to them is, today if you will hear His voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.
We need lips that are touched by the fire of the Holy Ghost to remove the iniquity and sin from our words, to speak boldly for what Christ has done for us on the Cross. Even with the presentation of the Gospel, many hearts are hardened to the things of the Living God, they turn a deaf ear to the Cross of Christ, and their eyes are closed to the presence of the Holy Ghost. They serve the knowledge and information of the modern god of this technological age, and they reject the spirit and soul! Satan has his grip on their minds and actions in this age where the spirit of the anti-Christ increases in intensity. HOWEVER, we answer the call to bring forth the Message of the Cross of Jesus Christ! From the stump of the cut down tree will come forth a sprig! Jesus Christ is coming soon! With Isaiah, we say, “Here am I send me,” when we hear the Lord saying, “Whom will I send and who will go for Us?”
How long do we continue to bring forth the Message of what Christ has done for us? All the way to the point of the Great Tribulation! Until the Lord have removed men far away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land. (The Rapture and coming of Jesus Christ is soon.) During this time, speaking about the remission of sin, the infilling of the Holy Ghost, and the necessity for the soul and spirit to fellowship with God’s Spirit will be harshly oppressed. Our efforts to make known God’s plan of redemption will seem useless. For obvious reasons, the conditions upon the earth will be quite chaotic! BUT, there will be a sprig sprouting forth from the stump. We must make it clear that, today if you will hear His voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.”
Our faithfulness to what Christ Jesus has done for us on the Cross counts us among the Holy Seed which is the substance of the Lord of hosts. Israel was totally destroyed in 70 A.D., making them no more than a stump of a cut down tree, but from that stump came a sprig to regather them as a nation in 1948. That is the example of the substance of the Holy Seed! As we steadily inch nearer towards the Great Tribulation, many, many, people will close their eyes, turn a deaf ear, and harden their hearts to the Word of God. There will be nothing more than a stump remaining of God’s Holy Seed as the Message of the Cross is reviled. BUT, Jesus Christ is coming soon, and there is a sprig growing in the midst of the stump! Today if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.
Believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord!
“Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not. Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed. Then said I, Lord, how long? And he answered, Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land be utterly desolate, And the Lord have removed men far away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land. But yet in it shall be a tenth, and it shall return, and shall be eaten: as a teil tree, and as an oak, whose substance is in them, when they cast their leaves: so the holy seed shall be the substance thereof. Isaiah 6:8-13 King James Version (KJV)
“As it is written; Today if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.” Hebrews 3:15
