In part one, we explored the two extremes those individuals who are part of the CURRENT Spiritual Remnant of God seem to suffer from if there is not spiritual intervention by God and others to assure their proper maturity or bring about their spiritual rehabilitation. In those two extremes we saw the immature babe in Christ just become another carbon copy of the apostate church member, all the while believing they have done well and are pleasing God. On the other end of the extreme, we saw the mature yet cynical Believer in Christ who through frustration and heartbreak with both God and man has turned their back on the active, active being the key word here, pursuit of God and fellowship with other Believers. Both of these outcomes are tragic and soul vexing to both the Body of Christ – The Church – in general and too the individual. With God’s grace, sound counsel, intervention and determination the CURRENT Spiritual Remnant of God can find their balance, steady their feet, and learn to live for and serve God as Jesus originally intended.

Sadly, the reality is too few can come through the process of which will describe in this series and come out on the other side whole. God desires they come through and fulfill His purpose for them but their steadfastness in the face of all they see is difficult. God knows they will have scars when they get to the other side but He would desire that we keep in mind that Jesus had scars as well once He was done with His earthly ministry. Dealing with the religious sect of society will leave you scared but cheer up they scared Jesus first, yet, His as well as your scars will be healed – completely.

God is doing something powerful in the world today among those who are truly devoted to Him. In November, Lord Willing, we will see on of this century’s greatest evangelist, Billy Graham, deliver what will most likely be his spiritual message via television, radio, and internet; his last perhaps because of his advanced age of ninety-five years old. Billy Graham has shared the gospel of Christ countless times in every part of the world imaginable to untold numbers but I do believe in the upcoming message he will talk about something he never has before, something that is dear to God’s heart for this time in history and for His CURRENT Spiritual Remnant. There will be an appeal for people to return to the way of life that was shared by the early church, which was the early church before religion took over. There will be a call to return to home fellowship and home evangelism; to bring the Church back to its roots by being less about corporations and personal ambition and more about people gathering together in small groups, sharing their lives, and growing in their walk and service to the Lord.

May God empower us to return to what Jesus started, the Church, in its purest form.

Spiritual/Political Disclaimer:

This blog will not be for the faint of heart or the easily offended. It will not be in any way politically correct. It will make every effort to share the truth in love, [Ephesians 4:11-16], to a decaying and dying society and church. I share what I share not to hurt, harm, or offend any person[s] or group; I do it because Christ’s Standard and Truth is not being represented by enough of His Followers and I do it out of love. I love enough to tell His Truth.

Ephesians 4:11-16 NKJV

11And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 13till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; 14that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, 15but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— 16from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.
