The Remnant Church
Christ and the Remnant Church: Do you belong?       The Olive Branch Report

The word, “Remnant” is a curious word – not much employed within the Church community.  The Emissary (Apostle) Sha’ul (Paul) spoke of a remnant in Romans 9:6 when he wrote, “not all who are descended from Israel belong to Israel.”  This strong statement is in line with prophetic insistence that the true followers of Yeshua (Jesus) may be but a small remnant of the faithful who do not turn from their abiding walk with the Lord.  I believe this remnant is already developing, already being sifted and prepared for the days directly ahead.  Days of hardship like our country has never known, including the wars and depressions we have experienced.  I believe the Lord in His full wisdom and unequaled knowledge is already raising up a remnant force that have been reserved for the season coming upon us quickly.  Those followers and warriors who will not bow to Baal, politics, or religious impotence.  This Remnant Army will stand with great authority; will walk with great power and might, and will use both with supernatural wisdom and knowledge. 

Already the Lord is teaching the remnant to stand on and proclaim the full Gospel of Christ, not just those slivers that tickle the ears and make you feel warm and fuzzy all over for an hour or two.  This remnant (and more being called-out) are being sifted and refined so they cannot be bought; they shall not compromise; their ears and hearts are tuned to God; and when the Lord speaks they will have learned to follow Him in humility (trust).  These remnant true believers trust the Lord’s words: “Fear not for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with a righteous right hand” (Isaiah41:10). 

The problems and threats confronting America are far deeper and more complex than numerous elected officials thought or even share with the public.  The political solutions and programs devised by man to rescue us from the financial, moral, national security threats have had little effect, and in many cases, have added to the problems and threats.  I believe God is humbling us as a people and as a nation.  But will we turn from our ways and come back to the God whom our Founders sought counsel and direction , and who guided them to establish this exceptional and godly nation?  Many in positions of power are dedicated to reshaping America according to humanistic values; shouting loud and continuously that God must be removed from government, from all law, education, the workplace, and, wait for it…even removed from church!  Yes the state is coming after the church.  What is just on the horizon is punative action taken by the government against churches refusing to perform same-sex marriages.  Those churches adhering  to the Gospel of Jesus Christ will find their tax-exempt status revoked, coupled with law suits that will end up bankrupting the church attempting to defend against these law suits.  The charge: “All people have a constitutional right to marriage, in whatever gender arrangement they desire, so the church is violating laws of discrimination.”

God is raising up a remnant; called by His Name, submitted to His authority, willing to walk boldly announcing the way of the Lord, and standing against the growing darkness in our land.  Are you one?  God is raising up a remnant; true believers who know that they know there is only one altar before which they must kneel; it is not the altar of man, the altar of government or institutions, not the altar of Baal or of  humanism, the remnant know they shall only bow at the altar of the Almighty God, the Creator of Heaven and earth.  Will you be a remnant?
