SAINTS ARE WILLING TO GIVE UP EVERYTHING

We see it in the Romans who hated the remnant believers because they would not bow their knee to the gods of this world. And because of this they poured out great fury and destruction against the saints. And then we see the Catholic church take up the same cause for the saints would not bow their knee to popes nor false doctrine. The saints would rather suffer death that live a compromised religious life. Now why would they do this? Because they had some alternative religion or philosophy? No, no, these saints had ” tasted ,” of the heavenly gifts. They had been touched by the glory of God. It burned in their very souls. They, like Paul could say that whatever things were gain to them that they would count it as loss for Christ.

In fact they too, like Paul would count all things loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus. Now this ” knowledge ,’ was not a head knowledge but was an intimate word. Scripture tells us that Joseph did not ” know,’ Mary until after Jesus was born. It is this sense of ” knowing,’ that is related to here, not a physical intimacy but a spiritual one which is actually much deeper than any physical union. We are one in Christ actually, not theologically. The remnant saints knows this ” knowledge.” This is why they were and are willing to give up everything, to count all things as loss and rubbish so that they can be found ” in Christ,” and that they may ” know Him.” The saint is one who is wiling to give up everything. The religious man, whether orthodox or Charismatic is one who is identified by what he has and who he is. He believes , like Job’s friends, that his material blessings are a sign that he walks in the favor of God which is why he despises those who have nothing or who care little for the things of this world.

THE GREAT FALLING AWAY

And so we can see that in every age, in every century, the real saint, the remnant saint, the saint that has not bowed his knee to the gods of this world, is the deadly enemy of the religious man. In every century they have hunted him down and killed him. And now we are approaching the end of the ages. The forces that have lay dormant in the west in regard to persecuting the saints to any great degree have not gone away. The spirits behind this persecution simply lay in wait for the right time. And now, with our Lord coming back soon, their time is short. The prophetic calendar has a mighty role to play in what is to unfold shortly. If you can accept that the Lord is coming back soon, then you must accept that the anti-christ will soon rise. In 2 Th 2:3 it says ” Let not anyone deceive you by any means, for that day shall not come unless first comes a falling away, and the man of sin shall be revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God.” So we know that when Scripture warns us not to be deceived, that there is a great propensity to be deceived and so we must be careful. There must come first a great falling away.

I would like to argue brothers and sisters that this great falling away has taken place before our very eyes and is unfolding as you read this. Christendom in Europe is all but dead. A mere 3% of British people go to church and the numbers in Europe, excluding Catholics is even worse. We have previously described the state of Christianity in North America as mostly cultural, cross-less and Christ-less. And it precisely because of this great falling away that the remnant saints are coming out , separating themselves, from what passes for Christendom. As the process of the falling away deepens and speeds up, and as wrong becomes more and more acceptable and actually becomes ” right,” to the religious, then more and more remnant saints will separate themselves from what is now known as Christendom. This separating is not a call by men but it is a call from God. God is calling His people out of the deadness of denominationalism. It is vital and necessary because God always has a witness on the earth. As the days darken and become more and more like the days of Noah, and as the remnant believers come out in greater numbers, then God will begin to pour out His Spirit more and more on His saints as they begin to dwell in unity and love one another. And the more anointed God’s remnant saints become, then the greater the persecution becomes.

GOD IS CALLING OUT HIS REMNANT

God’s people, His remnant people stand in direct opposition to the cultural winds that blow. And the more of a witness that they are, the more that their light shines in the darkness then the more of a threat they become. Scripture warns us of a great whore church that will arise in the end times. What will be the make up of this great whore church and how will it operate? Well we know that war is made upon the saints and this war will be led by the whore church at the behest of its leader. The anti-christ will have come initially as a man of peace, he will in all likely hood save the world from imminent disaster or post disaster. He will unite Christendom, Islam and Judaism. Now brothers and sisters, as preposterous as this seems now, can I tell you that we can already see the building blocks of this being put in place, stepping-stones if you like.

Even today we see movements such as “Chrislam,” led by dead denominations devoid of the Spirit and of truth where they have joint services with Muslims. Research that term at your own leisure. We also know that Dispensationalism, which is much broader than you may know and in fact carries a majority position within Christendom in matters relating to end times, has a radical position within its movement. This position in regards to Israel allows them to have joint services with Jewish people. And so even today, we see the beginnings of the great whore church that will encompass the world when it moves into the times of tribulation.
