“’Lord, they have killed your prophets, they have demolished your altars, and I alone am left, and they seek my life.’ 4 But what is God's reply to him? ‘I have kept for myself seven thousand men who have not bowed the knee to Baal.’ 5 So too at the present time there is a remnant, chosen by grace. 6 But if it is by grace, it is no longer on the basis of works; otherwise, grace would no longer be grace.”
Quick Announcement:On last week’s Friday Prayer Hour, we talked about Holy Grieving;
a discussion on grieving with GOD.
Catch the replay.
Join us next time on Friday, 12 noon – 1:00 pm (EST)
New Bible Study on the HOLY SPIRIT begins in January, 2020.
If there ever was a time that it has become dangerous to be a Holy Bible-believing child of GOD in the western world, it is now.
If there ever was a time to see the distinction between those who truly know JESUS, versus those who go to church and church events, it is now.
If there ever was a time when being pro-JESUS in the way you think, act, vote, entertainment choices and more, would cause you to lose friends, be canceled on social media platforms, or unfriended by “friends,” it is now.
Many people simply say a brief prayer, believe they are born again, and go about their lives, as if wearing a JESUS t-shirt is all that is necessary to enter the Kingdom of Heaven, or more specifically, the Kingdom JESUS brought with HIM to the earth. How unfortunate.
“From that time Jesus began to preach, saying, ‘Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.’” Matthew 4:17 (ESV)
The KING of this kingdom paid with HIS Blood to enable everyone who would believe to enter before actually getting to Heaven. Through the sacrifice of JESUS, the HOLY SPIRIT was released to enable us to experience Kingdom benefits while here on earth. Like every kingdom, it has a KING, CHRIST JESUS, and rules.
“’”Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.”
31The second is this: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” No other commandment is greater than these.’”
But sometimes it feels like we are the only ones doing this. We hardly hear positive stories in the mass media. I want to remind all of us, just like the LORD reminded me:
We are not alone.
There are thousands who believe what we believe, and make CHRIST-focused lifestyle choices.
Each time you and I give towards feeding and educating those in need, provide medical supplies for remote village clinics and local hospitals, put clothes on the backs of the naked, and so much more, we are living out our CHRIST-focused lifestyle choices.
Take comfort in the knowledge that JESUS sees what we do in HIS Name, and for HIM. Take comfort to know there are thousands upon thousands of people who are doing the same for the same reasons.
We are the Remnant.
