The path that leads to glory

A Call To The Remnant

Suffering is the path that leads to glory!

A wise man once wrote ” Friction is the polish that shines our graces.” Another way of saying that could be ” suffering is the path that leads to glory.” Now, this is never a popular teaching, but suffering is a gift from God in the sense that it helps to sanctify us and shape us and teach us. The flesh screams out against ever going down that path. As mere humans we would never personally choose to go down such a path. Yet do you know what that path is called? It’s called the narrow path and it leads to life. One might ask ” how can trials and humiliations , pain and suffering and even sometimes death lead to life?”

As Christians, do we really need to ask that question? This was the life of Christ. He was acquainted with…

Power Hungry Leaders

It was never the intention of the Yahweh for mankind to be ruled over by a fellow man; what we call King, which in the modern term is President.

Up until the days of Samuel, the people of Israel had no man-king ruling over them but the Most High Himself. The people of Israel were willing to surrender their will to a man and thus be ruled over by him; a willing slave.

And said unto him, Behold, thou art old, and thy sons walk not in thy ways: now make us a king to judge us like all the nations.” (1 Samuel 8:5 KJV)

Which means with the exception of the Israelites, other nations had a king ruling over them; Yahweh was their King. Of course they were warned of the consequences, 1 Samuel 8:11-18, but they refused to listen and still demanded for a king. They rejected Yahweh as King over them.

But it has never been, in any age, God’s intention for His people to act like the people of the world, to be governed or controlled like the people of the world. God’s people is, always has been, a peculiar people, a different people, a called-out, a separated, an altogether different in their ways, in their manner of living, than what the people of the world has. Their appetites for things and all that their makeup is, has been always contrary to the things that the people of the world desire.

And that has never been the will of Yahweh. It was never the will of Yahweh, or never will be His will for man to rule over one another. Yahweh rules over man, He is our Ruler, our King. And it’s very much of a parallel of today, because man seems to have that same idea. We don’t seem to be able to grasp that Yahweh still rules man, instead of man ruling man. We elect leaders into office with the confidence that they would fight our wars for us and make decisions with our best interest at heart. Do they?

Yahweh wants to rule His people, to govern each individual but man wants to rule, and rule over man; and man wants man to rule over him. Just as in politics today, we have voted man in there under promises of falsehood.

Yahweh never gave us a Pope or a Bishop or anybody to be a judge. The Holy Spirit is our judge and our guide. If we think we need a ruler we are not conscious, period. Being conscious means that we are capable of thinking independently and don’t need to be ruled. Conscious people don’t need to be told what to believe because their logic and reason allow them the ability to use their minds.

It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people who pay no price for being wrong. – Thomas Sowell

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…

What are you worth?

A Call To The Remnant

Before I encountered God in new birth I felt zero worth and this was the root cause of all of my problems in life, be it anger or alcohol or drugs and so on. Without any details, I was robbed of any worth as a kid. I set of down that typical destructive path. My brother ended up in prison, in and out for many years, my sister fought her own demons and died last year ( not before finding God, praise Him)

Encountering God in the new birth,there sprung forth life. Yet every life needs the light to grow, nothing grows in the darkness. And so I have had at least two significant encounters with the inspiration of Calvary after the new birth which has significantly changed the actual wiring in my head. You see, to know what Jesus did is revelation through His word but to truly understand…

Earth Crisis: We live in a time of extraordinary change

The Extinction Protocol

Alert LEVEL 2
January 12, 2016 – In his final State of the Union address, President Obama delivered a solemn message to the world. He warned: “We live in a time of extraordinary change and whether we like it or not, the pace of this change will only accelerate. Change is reshaping the way we live, the way we work, our planet, and our place in the world.
July 2016EARTH CRISISChange is accelerating across the planet. Archaic institutions are vying for control, desperately clinching to old paradigms of order that are becoming increasingly more irrelevant in a world that is now shifting and changing almost daily. The list of nation states that are now failing is growing. Global debt is increasing. Nations are secretly and openly preparing for war. Financial institutions are in negative interest rate territory, even as the stock market is skyrocketing not because of basic…
