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…

The spirit is being renewed daily.

A Call To The Remnant

The older I get, I am now in my 50s, the more I appreciate everything that is around me. I love the little birds that come and feed from the feeder. All day long, back and forward, scattering and finding their favorite part of the feed. I watch the pieces cascade down in the sunlight. I love my neighbor’s cat Poppy, who saunters across the cul-de-sac, off to who knows where, him and his missing tail. He had it removed many years ago after wearing a lamp shade for six months which failed to stop him chewing on his tail, but it never slowed him down. I love the flowers and I carefully tend them. I look for rose-buds and I anticipate their coming beauty. I water the grass on hot summer days because the lawn seems to be calling out. I watch the tall trees blowing back and forward…

What Are We Living For?

What is Earth; this place we were born onto? Why are we here? What is the purpose of this life? We are born, grow up, get a job, have a family and then finally we die. What could it all mean? Is that all we are meant to have? Live and then eventually die? Where do we go, or what happens after we die?

A lot is being hidden from us, right from the very moment we are born, the educational system and society start to teach us all the wrong things. Our lives have a much higher purpose than making some few dollars and making a family. There is a Creator. The One who created the earth on which we live, we were purposely created, for a very specific reason.

There is so much going on beyond what meets the eye, a spiritual struggle for our very souls, a battle between good and evil. Our lives on this earth is more to fulfil a spiritual purpose than a physical one. But I guess that’s what the devil tries to hide from us, so we are bombarded everyday by the things of this physical world; bills to settle, illnesses, people are even worried sick about their social media status…how many followers they have and what not. Sad. Loving temporal things is only a distraction from understanding what life is really about. Because as soon as we begin to understand the meaning of life, a lot of things become clearer to us and we won’t want to live our lives anyhow. So the devil being as cunning as he is, would do everything in his power to distract and blind us from the truth.

Let us set our eyes on the higher spiritual things, everything else we see around us is vain and would pass away. And all that we do on this earth, we would account for. The Creator, Jehovah, would judge us one day for the kind of life we lived here on earth. When we live in Him and He in us, He gives us the calmness and peace of heart to live through the chaos surrounding us. He sets our souls at peace.

When it’s all said and done, it comes down to one single thing:

Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. – Ecclesiastes 12:13 KJV

The great tragedy of the Sunday morning service!

A Call To The Remnant

The most important crisis facing the Body of Christ is the Sunday morning service. It really helps to know a little bit about the history of the early church and what it looked like. For the most part it would be in houses or for special occasions if there was more than one house gathering in a town or city, they would come together in an open field, especially if someone like Paul was coming. The gathering was just that, and there was a meal. Breaking bread meant just that, it did not mean a communion wafer and a ritualized affair. People were actually together, hanging out, singing hymns, sharing, giving testimony, asking for prayer. This thing called “the church service,” is something that morphed out of that. Bottom line, it really was not that complicated, the most important aspect of the gathering was that the Holy Spirit was there…
