Threshed

For thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: “The daughter of Babylon is like a threshing floor at the time when it is trodden; yet a little while and the time of her harvest will come.” Jer.51:33

O my threshed people, and my afflicted of the threshing floor! What I have heard from the LORD of hosts, The God of Israel, I make known to you. Isaiah21:10

Grain for bread is crushed, indeed, He does not continue to thresh it forever. Isaiah28:28

The Threshing Floor is where the wheat is separated from the chaff.  This is how the Lord threshes out His people. First He separates the wheat from the weeds, that is, the true from the fake. He then removes the chaff from His wheat. He removes the lies and impurities from the truth. He separates the deception from the truth. This involves discerning truth from lies. It involves choosing truth rather than lies. It involves walking in the truth and abiding in the truth. This threshing process hurts. The process of separation brings pain. There is pressure, crushing, sifting, separation. Only God’s people will thus be threshed. And none that are truly His, shall escape it. But this shall not continue forever. When He is done threshing, He will gather the wheat into His barn.
