Isa 6:11 Then I said, Lord, how long? And He answered, Until the cities are wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land laid waste, a desolation,
Isa 6:12 and until Jehovah has moved men far away, and the desolation in the midst of the land is great.
Isa 6:13 But yet in it shall be a tenth, and it shall return and be consumed like the terebinth and like the oak being felled, yet has its stump; the holy seed is its stump.
When Isaiah asked the LORD, “How Long”
The Lord gave him the DEVASTATING NEWS. Until………
All the Cities are ruined and without inhabitants. Like Berlin at the end of the WW2.
Farms Ruined and Ravaged.
Isa 6:12 and until THe LORD has moved men far away, and the desolation in the midst of the land is great. (in Israel).
What does it take for people to listen and turn and be saved.
The LORD moved the Ten Tribes of Northern Israel all the Way to Assyria where ISIS has been now operating near Mosul. How far did they have to walk as captives on empty stomachs, people dying of exhaustion every day.
Isa 6:13 But yet in it, (Israel) , shall be a tenth, and it shall return and be consumed like the terebinth and like the oak being felled, yet has its stump; the holy seed is its stump.
Notes :Even though only 1/10 remain in the land after all the others are marched off as captives to Assyria the remnant will be invaded again. What destruction.
The Holy seed will be the stump in the land.
God can make the Holy Seed to sprout again even everything looks like it is dead and finished. It is similar to what the LORD did in the resurrection of the Holy Line of David when Christ came born of Mary in Judah in Bethlehem the city of David.
