Are You in the Remnant?
We are in a prophetic transition and God is preparing to use His remnant. The remnant represents believers who hear Jesus knocking, open the doors and come out to dine with Him. In the Greek, Christ’s knock on the doors of the Laodicean church is in the present tense, which means He continues to knock (Revelation 3:20). Christ is still seeking to save those who are trapped in the church. Remember, God does not sit in the church. His throne is not in a church. His throne is in the Kingdom. The church is a place of service for the ekklesia, those called out to be an inhabitation; the church is just a reflection of Christ’s Kingdom. So if you want God, you must come into the Kingdom.
We must expand the borders of the Kingdom message! The Bible says, “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived” [2 Timothy 3:13]. There is a desperate need to spread the message of the King to try to rescue as many people as possible before the Lord returns. There are folk who are going to hell because the church has lost its original mission and is controlled by Satan’s emissaries: money, race, and culture. When you consider that Christ came teaching the Kingdom of God, that the 1st century Christian existed in a Kingdom context, and that Paul taught the things concerning Christ and His Kingdom, we must ask ourselves, Why are we focusing so much upon the church? The remnant realizes that they are here on official business, not merely playing with toys of the flesh. The message of the church is irrelevant, but the message of the embassy, the spiritual church, the real ecclesia is life changing.
What is the message of the embassy church? That our King is above all other kings, hence, He is King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He is high and lifted up, and the train of His robe fills His temple. Our King is a just and merciful King. Our King and Lord authenticated His throne by His death, burial, and resurrection. Our King is the redeeming King. Our King has power over life and death. Our King is a God of a second chance. Elijah felt overwhelmed after his encounter with Jezebel and thought he was the only true prophet around. Then, God summoned 7,000 prophets who had not bowed their knee to Baal (1 Kings 19:18). It may not seem like it, but God has thousands of men and women who have not compromised and bowed their knees to Laodicea. God has a people on the back side of the mountain that He has preserved for such a time as this. Are you one of them?
