“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.”(Isaiah 6:13)
The faithful ones — the remnant — are evidence that Christ is still advancing His kingdom. Though history records several instances when Christianity seemed to be in decline, it has never reported its demise. Nor will it. Christ and His church are very much alive; throughout the world people are being born again every day. “The holy seed is its stump.” Though God had disciplined His people, and many of them literally died, He did not destroy them. Those He left on earth were more sure than ever that their purpose was to live for His glory and not their own. The remnant was vibrant—not just breathing, but multiplying.
Our presence on earth today as believers is no less a call to kingdom living than was the preservation of God’s faithful ones in the Old Testament. We too are here for Him and not for ourselves. We are representatives of His eternal kingdom. (source: copied)
