We’re in a time of world crisis. This is the time for the church to be the church.
Unfortunately, we’re seeing some flesh and some goats manifest among the sheep. I’m encouraged, though, because true leaders are also emerging. Sometimes it’s not who you thought.
The remnant is rising.
While on my prayer broadcast, I heard the Lord say:
“I am calling forth My remnant, those who will cooperate with My Spirit and with truth; those who will speak forth the words that I put in their mouth no matter who likes it and no matter who doesn’t like it.
“For I have called you to gather together and to band together in small groups and even large groups. But unified groups are what I am after. I am after groups of unified believers who are crying out in my name so I can hear their voice and heal their land.
“Who will gather? Who will be part of the remnant that I am calling together in this hour? The praying church…. the on fire believers … the ones who will not take no for an answer when the enemy is standing in the way between what I’ve called you to and the reality of the promise.
“I am rising. I am rising. My Spirit is rising and I am looking for the remnant to rise with Me. Who will ascend to the holy hill, to the mountain of the Most High? Those with clean hands and a pure heart. The remnant.
“I am calling the remnant. I am calling the remnant. I am calling the remnant.
“I am calling you out of your caves and out of your closets. I’m calling some of you out of your churches. I’m calling some of you out of the business world and into ministry. I am calling the remnant. I am calling the remnant to prayer. I want to hear the prayers of the remnant, unified, unified, unified, unified, unified, unified together, touching and agreeing together.”
Who or what is the remnant? You might not be familiar with the term remnant, so let me define it for you. The remnant is the church within the church. It’s a small number of people among a large crowd. It’s a group of survivors with boldness to do and say what the Lord wants done and said despite the personal cost.
The remnant is not called the remnant for nothing.
Paul the apostle speaks of the remnant in Romans 11:5, “Even so then, at this present time there is a remnant according to the election of grace.”
And again in Romans 9:27, “Isaiah also cries out concerning Israel: ‘Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, the remnant will be saved.”
