A generation of prophets arise

A Call To The Remnant

I have met so many people who think the church is just fine and everything is the way it has always been and anyone who says anything different is generally castigated. There is a sizable remnant who do see it and I thank God for them. They are, of course, rejected and generally hated because they are in effect, party poopers. They don’t go along with the flow, they disrupt the flow, like a large stone in a flowing river, they cause turbulence and turbulence is uncomfortable and folks don’t want to be uncomfortable. They are for the most part sleeping and they do not want to be woken up. And this remnant are constantly shouting ” wake up you sleepy Christians, wake up, Christ is at the door and the bride must make herself ready to receive her King.”

How many of us can relate to lying in bed…

We are a starved generation!

A Call To The Remnant

We are a starved generation that has never seen the glory of God. We have men and woman in their 20s and 30s who have never seen the glory of God. They’re Christians, they’re in Bible schools, but they have never seen the glory of God. They have never known what it is to be in a service where the presence of God is so awe-inspiring that you cant speak aloud.

They have never heard God preached about so high and lifted up that they went home in silence and wouldn’t talk. When A.B.Simpson preached in Buffalo, New York, he preached on the glory of Jesus Christ and when he was finished , they dismissed the meeting and no one got out of their seats. They sat there because they were afraid to get up and walk around in the presence of God. But a whole generation of young people…

If the foundations are destroyed

A Call To The Remnant

We are living in a generation of Christians raised on the “blessings,” mentality. Preach a few weeks in a row, or even once, a Holy Spirit filled message about how every saint is called to suffer persecution, how God has never promised them riches, and how His blessings often come wrapped up in trials and see if you are invited back. Christendom of our day craves acceptance by the world because they want to be liked and not persecuted. It is for this reason the world has flooded into the church and the pillars of truth are crumbling under their feet. If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do? Almost every mega church in the country either teaches prosperity, health and wealth or word of faith, or are compromised with the world or a mixture of all of the above. It is a watered down Christianity that is…

If we could see

A Call To The Remnant

If we could see around the next bend on the narrow path then it would not take faith to continue along it. When we leave the harbor and there is no horizon then arriving at the other side of the world would not take faith. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not yet seen. Strange and counter intuitive isn’t it, that in this world something that is observed is the evidence of reality but in the other world, something not seen is the evidence of spiritual reality. One more glorious paradox and evidence of how God works outside of limitations.

There is a madness.

A Call To The Remnant

There is a madness in the air. It is so lunatic that it beggars description. All around the world there is delusional thinking. Can you imagine that you are right there, watching the pied piper play his tune and the whole world is intoxicated with it and are dancing. They are winding their way out-of-town and heading towards a mighty cliff and are falling of the edge. The people behind cannot see that the ones in front are falling off because they are so intoxicated by the music and the piper plays on. You run up and down the winding crowd and scream out that they are being led over a cliff. As you do that they begin to mock and jeer. Yet you don’t quit. This begins to infuriate the crowd because your noise is interrupting their enjoyment of the intoxicating music. Their fury begins to turn violent because…

Will you step into the arena?

A Call To The Remnant

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. (Teddy Roosevelt)

How easy to be the critic of others…

Having eyes to see the Glory!

A Call To The Remnant

Christ is real no matter our circumstances and the reason we have seeker-friendly watered down Gospel is because people have been taught by ear tickling men. Christ dying on the cross is doom and gloom to those who are perishing but glory and victory to those who are not. Paul speaking out from his dungeon words of faithfulness is glory and majesty but the fearful can only see the dungeon. Stephen glorifying God as the stones rain down is glory and majesty but to the fearful is a terror because their eyes are not on the eternal glory of the Living God and His children but on the temporary temporal things of this world. In Christ there is no fear, He prepares a table before us in the presence of our enemies. So, to those outside of the Spirit , doom and gloom, to those who walk according to the…
