A Faithful Remnant

| December 6, 2011

Over 2000 years ago God used just 12 men to change the course of history. Those 12 grew to 120 and then on to great nations and kingdoms, the mighty Christian nations of the world. Before that there was a time when God used 300 dedicated men to route an entire army, another time just 232, and at other times just 1 man to defeat entire nations. You see, God doesn’t need large numbers of people to accomplish His purposes; a small faithful remnant of believers is all He needs.

And a small remnant is all that He is going to use in the future.

This is important to understand. Because it can be easy for us to feel defeated at times when we look out at the world and see that we are completely outnumbered and surrounded (Psalms 18:4) by those who are against the commandments of God and the Testimony of Jesus Christ. And the numbers keep growing.

We even have a president today who declared that America is no longer a Christian nation.

(See articles on The End of White America and The Locust Invasion)

Because of all this, it often feels like we are all alone in the midst of a pack of wolves (Matt 10:16).

For Christianity is being viciously attacked in every area of public life, from our government institutions down to our local public schools. It happens everyday. If you live in seclusion and you’re not aware of it, read the book Persecution by David Limbaugh and see for yourself the bloodthirsty nature of the enemies of Christianity and freedom.

You know this assault should really come at no surprise to us though, for it was foretold of long ago that the “majority” would be against Christ and that they would attempt to silence the remaining few of us left who still follow His Word.

As it is written:

Why do the heathen rage, And the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, And the rulers take counsel together, Against the LORD, and against His Anointed, saying,

“Let us cast their bands asunder, And cast away their cords from us.”

He That sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: The LORD shall have them in derision. –Psalms 2:1-4

Let me repeat what the psalmist said. The LORD is actually going to laugh at those in high political office and those surrounding us who are attempting to remove His name from the world. I mean if God is laughing at them, we certainly shouldn’t be worried about them, right?

In fact, not only should we not worry about being outnumbered and surrounded, we should look ahead with confidence knowing that God is going to use us, His faithful remnant, to accomplish greater victories than ever before.

You know there was one mighty American general who understood this concept well. And besides being famous for replying to someone who asked him if he ever read the Bible by saying,

Every goddamned day I do!”

He also astutely said that,

Spiritually alert minorities carry the burdens and bring the victories.”

This quote by General George S. Patton is one that I’ve placed in the front of my Bible as a reminder that numbers mean nothing if God is with us. For just about the time when our enemies laugh and think that they have completely destroyed Christianity and freedom, God is going to raise up a faithful remnant to overthrow them and to bring in His everlasting Kingdom upon earth (Dan 2:44).

For during the days of the Antichrist’s New World Order, God is going to call out “seven shepherds, and eight principal men” to lead the faithful remnant to victory (Micah 5:5). For during those days:

The remnant of Jacob shall be among the Gentiles (non-Christian peoples) in the midst of many people as a lion among the flocks of sheep: who, if he go through, both treadeth down, and teareth in pieces, and none can deliver. –Micah 5:8

Perilous times are coming, be faithful, be strong, and be Christian Overcomer!

    what a wonderful website ! Thank you for posting. May I also refer you to further study the name of Jesus.
    The Messiah’s Name: JESUS, not Yahshua by Daniel L. Segraves-This author (vice-Pres. and chairman of dept. of Theology at Christian life college in Stockton, CA.)
    Our English language is under attack. Not one dot of the i or cross of the t should be removed from the word of God. In whatever language one speaks, the word of God has been translated from the original Greek and Hebrew ( in the the language of English- we have the King James Bible ). So in English, we speak Jesus. Of course, if we spoke a different language, and read a different language, we would speak his name differently, as we would speak all our words different.
    Let us hold fast to His name- Lord Jesus Christ- and never let go.
    Thank you brother for your work in the Lord,
    Judy Ralls

    Hi- also wondering if you have typed in Bullinger/companion bible -Wikipedia. Lots of people are these days quoting this version- but missed the information concerning the friend (Zionist Herzl ) and the theology of Bullinger. ( he has no thoughts of souls lost , i.e. eternal damnation and puts 4 people instead of two that were crucified with our Lord..) We dare not add or detract from the word of God. Doing so is against His commands. If one looks to other versions of bibles (instead of the traditional text) the writers prove their anti-christ witness.
    The work you have done is sincere and helpful. We so need pastors, teachers who bring the truth of God in this dark day. Thank you and God bless you.
    In Christ,
