"Are We At The End?"

Chapter 4, Part 1

"The Remnant Church and People"

Over the years of church history, many denominations, revival movements, and charisma leaders have made vast claims that they were the remnant that God has spoken about in the scriptures. Attributing certain characteristics and signs that related directly to their leadership, many were convinced that indeed they were the ONLY people on the earth that made up the remnant church and people; and unless you were a part of their particular persuasion, you were not a part of the remnant church or people. 

This is the first error that was commonly made by those who taught on the remnant church, and throughout this teaching I will clearly show you who the remnant church is and the people that make up the remnant. The first revelation you need to know if this:

The remnant church and people are not called this because of some special characteristic that they possess; but rather they are called the remnant because of the special relationship they have with the Most High God.

As I take you through the many scriptures in God’s Word concerning the remnant, you will begin to see just why they are called by this particular name, and you will also see how important their function, role, and assignment is at the end of the last days. Let me list a few scriptures for your research:

“Except the LORD of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we have been like unto Gomorrah.” {Isaiah 1:9}

20 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the remnant of Israel, and such as are escaped of the house of Jacob, shall no more again stay upon him that smote them; but shall stay upon the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, in truth. {Isaiah 10:20}

And I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries whither I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase. {Jeremiah 23:3}

7 For thus saith the Lord; Sing with gladness for Jacob, and shout among the chief of the nations: publish ye, praise ye, and say, O Lord, save thy people, the remnant of Israel. {Jeremiah 31:7}

32 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord hath said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call. {Joel 2:32}

14 And the Lord stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and the spirit of Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, and the spirit of all the remnant of the people; and they came and did work in the house of the Lord of hosts, their God, {Haggai 1:14}

27 Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved: {Romans 9:27}

There is a common thread that I discovered years ago about the remnant people of God that is coming to pass more and more as we approach the end of the last days, and it is this: Because of the calling, anointing, assignment, and special intimate relationship that they have with their Heavenly Father, they are the most persecuted, rejected, and are continuously in a state of spiritual warfare. This is clearly identified in the scriptures that are in Revelation 12:7-17 {Stop and read these verses, but especially note verse 17}:

17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. {Revelation 12:17}

While I realize that in America we have been blessed to enjoy an extreme amount of liberty as we serve God, I also know that just like our brothers and sisters throughout the nations of the earth that are a part of the remnant church that:

12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. {2 Timothy 3:12}

The persecution for those who are sold out for Jesus in every way possible has escalated in America already; and this is why many churches, ministries, and non-profits are compromising for the sake of convenience and not wanting to draw rejection from the demonic controlled society that we are living in. Many years ago the Holy Spirit led me to teach people about the persecution that was coming to this small part of the world; and when I taught it many pastors and leaders in this geographical region let it be known that I was in error and that it would never take place.

I taught people that one of the reasons that God’s Word requires us to be people of faith is that regardless of what comes our way that we will stand, stay fully committed to the Word, not compromise for acceptance from a demonic inspired society, and remain steadfast and immoveable as we exalt and magnify the Name of Jesus.
