And it shall come to pass in that day that the remnant of Israel, and such as have escaped of the house of Jacob, will never again depend on him who defeated them, but will depend on the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, in truth. Isaiah 10:20
God will always have a remnant. To understand this, we must evaluate what the word remnant means. It’s something that remains when all else is cut away. As the Lord explained to me a long while ago, it’s a people He has separated for Himself. Those who have remained faithful, followed His commands, commune with Him and love Him with their whole hearts. Those who would gladly lay down their own lives for Him.
You would think with everything He has done for us, there would be many more. It’s not that He only wants a few. Oh no! He is constantly calling, wooing us back out of the cares of this life and the deceitfulness of riches into His glorious Light. The world has been a great vacuum to so many. They are lost in the darkness and desperately long for someone who will show them the way back to the Father.
God has a remnant. Those who have been hidden with deep purpose in their hearts. They’re not interested in what this world offers. They can’t be bought off because Jesus Christ has already paid their debt and they owe Him their very life. They are a rare breed of warriors. They carry not a physical sword, but the Sword of the Spirit, the very Word of God. They recognize and give credence to the Author and Finisher of their Faith.
They are everywhere, waiting for instructions. They have fine tuned their hearing so that they only listen to His voice and are ever ready. They look for opportunity to demonstrate the Love they are known for. They are literally the hands and mouthpiece of their Maker. They possess the faith of God and refuse to doubt, even when things don’t happen as they imagined. They understand that His Word will never come back to Him without accomplishing what it was intended to do. His Word in their mouth will do the same.
If this resonates with your spirit or stirs you to your very core, you are remnant. Very soon, the body of Christ will be called up for service. Are you ready? There will be no more time for preparation. Every one of us will be called out for a unique purpose and we must be ready at a moments notice. Do not be weary. Don’t be caught sleeping on your watch. Be filled with the oil of the Holy Spirit and allow His power to manifest in and through you. It’s been a long time of preparation for a very quick work, but we are ready.
I Am Remnant,
