My post today continues the re-introduction of our teaching on His Remnant Church, the True Church of Jesus Christ in the Last Days.
His Remnant Church, is that part of the Body of Jesus Christ in these Last Days, who know that they are the children of God, and are hearing from and following the leading of His Holy Spirit. Within His Remnant Church there is growing a deeper intimacy with Christ, and while few may heed the call to be a part of this church, grace yet abounds in the lives of those who hunger after God’s Word, and especially for His prophetic teaching. His Remnant Church will diligently study the Word as did the Bereans (Acts 17:11), and walk in full authority of the Word as Jesus requires of us. We must realize all things are possible through Him and that we have nothing to offer the world other than Christ.
His Remnant Church works in total humility and subjection to the Word of God, so that God receives all the glory. Only as we grow in the Holy Spirit, will the love of God be manifest for all to see. Men will no longer see us, but see the Spirit of God’s power manifest in our lives, in His Remnant Church. I believe His Remnant Church is made up of a small proportion of God’s people at the end of time, and they are clinging to the unadulterated Gospel, Faith and Doctrines of the church found in the Book of Acts. His Remnant Church will look like the original Church of Acts where faith was still pure and people followed Christ no matter what the cost, where a handful of believers through faith in Christ turned the world upside down (Acts 17:6), where following the teachings of the Holy Spirit caused the Gospel of Jesus Christ to reach the known world. His Remnant Church will look like the early church in Acts in that it will be made up of believers willing to sacrifice everything for the cause of Christ, and will support each other as family.
His Remnant Church will stand on the Word of God alone. This church is comprised of people who have not allowed pagan ideas, humanistic ideas, other religions or idols to have been introduced into their beliefs or worship as it has in many mainstream churches. This church is made up of people who are shutting out the things of this world and turning to the things of God, it is a church which, while it may be in this world, is definitely not of this world. They are hearing the Word of God, listening to the Holy Spirit, understanding Bible Prophecy, and understanding the need to tell the rest of the world, that unless they turn to Christ, judgment is about to fall on them as it falls on this wicked godless world.
His Remnant Church has as our model our Lord Jesus; we are to be a people who will die to self to bring life to others. Death to self for God’s purpose is what will glorify Him. To be a part of His Remnant Church is to travel a lonely road, and few will be prepared to make the journey. Persecution will definitely follow the rise of His Remnant Church just as it did the early church. Paul wrote of this to Timothy in 2 Timothy 3:12 “Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.” And again to the church at Philippi in Philippians 1:29 “For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake.”
Those that are satisfied with denominational churches, seeker friendly churches, and comfortable social club churches espousing the teaching of the prosperity gospel, and self-help theology, will certainly not understand nor agree with the teaching of His Remnant Church. This remnant church teaches the message of the narrow way, of Christ as the only way (John 14:6 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.”) it is Jesus plus Nothing. His Remnant Church must expect to experience persecution from these false churches and the false prophets which lead them. His Remnant Church must be prepared to preach the Gospel of repentance as did the Apostles, for Jesus is coming soon to redeem His Church, His Bride, and a time of tribulation will be ushered in to begin God’s Judgment on the Nations.
To be continued… because… Jesus is Coming Soon!
