Have you fallen down?

A Call To The Remnant


Psalm 42:5 Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted in me? Hope you in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.

Are you downcast today? Has the troubles of life, the trials of circumstances mounted up and overwhelmed you? Are you wandering in a spiritual wilderness? Perhaps you even feel abandoned by God? Has the multitude of your troubles somehow separated you from the presence of the living God?Is the only water you are experiencing right now the tears that fall in the shadows of the night, the darkness of your situation?

There is a term amongst shepherds called “casting.” It refers to a sheep on its back. If a sheep falls onto its back, it does not have the ability to get upright again. The blood will begin to drain from the sheep’s legs, and the weight…

A brief history of God’s called out people (remnant) by Chip Brogden

A Call To The Remnant

Throughout history, God has continually called out a people, a remnant that will represent His heart and mind in the midst of universal deception and decay. To answer this calling, God’s people have always been asked to leave where they are and travel through an unfamiliar, lonely place – a wilderness – in order to reach the place He has prepared for them.

This happened twice in the history of Israel, and it has happened twice in the history of Christianity. By looking back on how God has called His people out in times past, we can better see and appreciate the significance of the final exodus that is taking place at this time.
Israel’s First Exodus: God Called the Hebrews Out of Egypt

We have already seen that Moses established a “church in the wilderness” by leading the Hebrews out of Egypt and into the Promised Land by way…

You are not alone

A Call To The Remnant

You may feel very lonely saint, but you are not alone
There is one who walks with you and sits upon His throne
You may feel very tired, this old world has got you down
But the one who dwells within your heart will always be around

You may be troubled on every side but know you will survive
For remember you were dead in sin but now you alive
The light that dwells within you is the light from up above
He breathed into your very lungs and filled your heart with love

You may have battled with despair but joy comes in the morning
The darkness tries to lie to you and fill your heart with mourning
Yet deep within your very heart sits the one upon His throne
And then when all seems lost to you, you’ll find your not alone

He is our very present help…

Who will walk the narrow path?

A Call To The Remnant

My little children, for whom I am again in the anguish of childbirth until Christ is formed in you. (Galatians 4:19 ESV)

T.A.Sparks writes………………..

The profaning of the Lord’s Name, and the taking away of His glory, is the inveterate habit and course of the old creation nature. Should you see any of the old creation getting into the realm of the things of God, what is the result sooner or later? That man takes the glory, and dishonors God. Is not that the tragic, dark story of “the Church”; man in his old creation powers and life pressing into the things of God, and making a name for himself? The Church has been the happy hunting ground of men for reputation, position, influence and all such things. The flesh always does that. It takes God’s glory away, it profanes God’s Name. In order that that might not be…

The pain of our Heavenly Father

A Call To The Remnant

God the Father was so deeply wounded by Calvary. He was not asking His son to suffer and He stand dispassionately by. How did God the Father suffer?? At the height of Calvary He watched His precious Son take all of our sins and crucify them for us and turned His head away. Yet He heard His Son cry out “My God, My God, why has thou forsaken me.” God the Father was wounded so deeply that our minds are simply too small to even come close to understanding.

Perhaps only a parent who has watched their child suffer or die in agony can even come close to imagining the pain? And we know at that very moment, ” The veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom.” What does the veil represent? It represents the covering of Gods heart, His chest if you like.

Our primary object is Jesus

A Call To The Remnant

When our primary focus is on anything other than Jesus we become distracted and begin to distance ourselves from the Lord. The deception comes when our focus is on something that is laudable. Things like holiness and revival are a couple of examples of things that in and of themselves are not harmful if they are a by-product of our focus on Jesus. If they are our primary focus then they simply become a tool in the enemy’s hand that leads us away from the presence of God.

Only as Jesus is lifted up, only as He is glorified, only as He is worshiped can there be change. He is the central focus of our lives and as we make Him the center of all things only then can we expect to see Him move in power. Everything else, and I mean everything, is religion and vanity. Many a good…

There is life in the rushing waters.

A Call To The Remnant

It is a strange paradox that we Christians must find Jesus but keep on seeking Him. We must find forgiveness but keep on seeking to forgive. We must find mercy but keep seeking to be merciful. We must read His word but continue to abide in His word. We must find life in Him yet continue to seek life in Him. Like a rushing spring time river we must be ever flowing. And the source of the waters of that river is the Lord Himself. And when we do these things, when we abide and when we pursue, when we keep abiding and keep pursuing then the river keeps flowing and everything the river touches brings life. Rushing waters bring life and in stagnant waters there is death. Will you live today and will that life that is in you bring life to others around you? This is the will…
