Isaiah 28:28 (b) In this passage the word represents the climax in dealing with a soul for salvation. As all persons are not saved in the same way, so all grains are not gathered in the same way. Threshing represents just one of the many ways of harvesting. The Lord is teaching in this verse that there are a number of methods to use in releasing a soul from the bonds and bands of sin and Satan until they are born again, redeemed and saved.
Jeremiah 51:33 (a) The time to destroy Babylon had come. It is described as a threshing because of the tremendous beating she would receive from her enemies. (See also Isaiah 21:10).
Amos 1:3 (a) This is a description of the persecution and whipping given to Gilead by the armies of Damascus.
Micah 4:13 (a) By this type we understand that the nation of Israel was to whip her enemies and conquer the opposing nations.
Habakkuk 3:12 (a) Again this type is used to illustrate the whipping that GOD gave the heathen for their wicked and hostile attitude toward His people.
1 Corinthians 9:10 (b) The thought of being successful in soul winning is indicated by this figure. Certainly there is great joy in the heart of the believer when he sees "the wheat" brought into the garner and separated from the chaff.
