A Call To The Remnant

Do you hate the Government?

Posted by appolus on April 19, 2014

Brothers and sisters. There continues to be an anti government movement within Christendom. At the center of this hatred for government seems to be taxes and the Federal government and Obama-care. Now, can we say we are standing on solid ground if we are caught up with land disputes and cattle grazing rights and other such worldly things?

Believers down through the centuries, have paid taxes to any manner of evil governments, starting with Rome. When the Romans extracted taxes from the vanquished nations and from property owners, do you imagine that the money was used for Godly enterprises? Nero himself used to dip Christians in oil and then set them ablaze to light up his parties at night. Should Christians and Jewish people have paid taxes to Nero’s government?

At the very heart of the conception of the American experience lies rebellion and taxes. Nothing has changed, it is still the same. The Word says that God is not mocked, what a man or a nation sows, it surely reaps.Yet in this vast nation there are millions of genuine saints and I thank the Lord that there is, for it is the light of the western world. Ravenhill suggested that a mere 5-7% of this nation was actually Christians. I think it may be more like 20%. Yet even if it is only 20%, that is almost 60 million genuine saints. God is calling His saints, His remnant saints to be readied for the final days of the ages. A great darkness draws near and the Satan himself is on the verge of unleashing evil on a scale never seen before or even imagined.

The remnant saints will be about their Father’s business. They will draw closer to Him as that day approaches. They will draw closer to each other as that day approaches. The other 80% will be fighting each other over political ideologies. First there was nation against nation, then there is kingdom against kingdom. The Greek word for Kingdom is ethnos, it is where we get our word ethnic from. People groups hating and turning on one another. The greatest divide in people groups in America today? Right versus left, Republican versus Democrat, Capitalist versus Socialist.

The hatred amongst these groups is tangible. Let the world do what they must, but do not be counted in their numbers. We as the Body of Christ were not called into the Kingdom of God to rescue or sustain cultures, good or bad. We were called to turn the world upside down. We were not called to be a sub-culture but to be a counter-culture. Can anyone really tell the difference between so much of what passes for Christianity today and the world?

The culture in this country, in the broadest terms, splits into two groups. One side of the culture is conservative and typically loves political freedom and are generally capitalists, the other side is liberal and loves government intervention and social programs and so on. Neither side is Godly, they are merely a product of their world and both sides will eventually turn on the remnant saints. The sad thing about both sides, but mainly the conservative side, is that they try to make a virtue out of their “isms”, when in actual fact they are just as worldly, often more so, than their liberal counterparts, they are just more blinded to their worldliness. Of course, if one is still a friend to the world and fully engaged in it and the culture,they will escape the coming persecution and more than likely be the persecutors.

Give to the world or Caesar what is his, but give to God what is His. What is His? All of you. To do this we must die to the cultural influences that course through our veins and come up higher. Genuine Christianity transcends the world and all of its cultures. Walk in the Kingdom, follow the King and be the ambassadors you were called to be. Our allegiance is to Jesus and to Him alone. Our identity is in Christ and Christ alone. Let us fight the fight that the Lord Himself has called us to fight, not with the weapons of this world or as the world fights whether in wars or in the political realms, but on our knees before a high and Holy God. This is our calling, and all the more as we see that day approach. Everything else? A distraction.

    I hear what you’re saying. The problem is that everyone thinks they are right. That’s part of the human condition. Therefore, whatever someone perceives as correct as far as politics, religion, philosophy, et al, that is truly and honestly correct to that person.

    • appolus said

      Accept rlp, we have the Word of God to guide us and it does not require a masters degree to understand that at the most basic level of our walk with God, we have been called to love our enemies and do good to them that spitefully use us………..Frank

    • SammiD said

      Was David wrong when he confronted Goliath and slew the giant that was taunting the soldiers of Israel?
      Was Gideon on the wrong path when he took the 300 men and defeated the thousands of Midianites?
      How about Jesus overturning the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves (in the temple)? Why didn’t He just walk away and pray for them??

      Psalms 94:16 “Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? Who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?”

      WHO WILL STAND? Our country is in this sad shape precisely because we have turned blind eyes to what is happening here in the US. We didn’t stand up for the unborn; We didn’t stand up against homosexuality; we didn’t stand against no prayer in our schools. We have allowed hundreds of ungodly laws to go unchallenged in OUR presence. We are guilty of sleeping in our fat, greedy, politically correct and apostate churches while our country and it’s people go straight to hell. When we as Christians (soon) find ourselves in concentration camps (aka FEMA camps), there will be NO ONE to blame but ourselves.

      • appolus said

        Hi Sami. Were the Apostles wrong not to have formed an armed militia and stormed the Sanhedrin and take back the temple? Were they wrong to flee to Pella in 67ad rather than stand and fight with the Jewish freedom fighters in 70ad? The one New Testament example you give is Jesus throwing over the tables. Was Stephen just unlucky that a group of his fellow armed deacons did not arrive in time to save him from being stoned? I could go on and on Sami, but the point is, we are not of this Kingdom, the world does and will hate us more, America is not the kingdom of God, we are called to willingly die for the Kingdom of God and its King, Jesus. You are right about about Christendom though, it is sleeping in fatness and apostacy. If only half the people who actually claim to be Christians in this country, actually were, and they each only saw one person in their lifetime come to Jesus, it would be the biggest revival the world has ever saw and literally the whole country would be saved. And if that were the case, then there would be no abortion and wickedness in our midst. And so on that we agree. That which passes for the church is powerless, Christless and crossless and impotent because of it. One more thing we agree on, genuine Christians will be rounded up, but not the fat apostate ones you speak of, they will be the ones doing the rounding up. Yet, this is our end, we have been called to be led like lambs to the slaughter just as our Savior was. This is an offensive thought to those who are fear bound and who actually have not given up their lives to Jesus as they claim. They will fight this , and fight it hard because they are not willing to die for a crucified Jesus. Peter was told ” Get thee behind me Satan,” he was told that because he minded the things of men and not the things of God. Peter had to be broken before he truly became brave. And of course, Peter was willingly martyred , he had put down a man’s sword and taken up the Lord’s sword. Will you lay down your sword Sami and willingly die for Jesus? ” By the blood of the lamb, the word of their testimony, and they loved not their lives unto death.” This is the overcoming power of God in His kingdom as we walk through this kingdom here on earth……………..bro Frank

        • SammiD said

          Hello Bro Frank, thank you for your kind reply. I apologize that my post sounded so militant. That was not my intention. I am not an eloquent speaker and sometimes I find it difficult to get my point across. Let me say this about my previous post; I was in no way advocating that we as Christians take up weapons against our perceived enemies. The only offensive weapon I have is the Word of God (sharper that a double edged sword).

          I am not afraid. I am angry. Righteous anger and indignation is justly expressed when we are confronted with sin. My anger is aimed at those who supply rebels with weapons that are killing Christians in far away countries; against those who advocate and pay for abortion WORLDWIDE with our tax dollars; against those who preach anything other that the true Word of God in our churches. Am I willing to die for Christ? Yes! But I am also willing to live and be a living testimony of His word. As Christians we need to let our voices be heard. As a Christian, I can channel my anger into action by doing everything possible to combat the influence of evil in society, not with guns, but with my VOICE! Every Christian has one, but very few are heard. It is because God’s people have been silent and have not stood against this evil, these things have been allowed to happen in our country.

          Question: Bro Frank, where does the bible say “we have been called to be led like lambs to the slaughter”? I know that Jesus is the King who became the Servant who became the Lamb.
          7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he opened not his mouth. (Isaiah 53:7)
          But I cannot find that we have been called to do the same.

          Blessings

            Hi Sammi, no problems at all brother. For those of us who are privileged enough to be the generation alive before the return of Jesus, then we shall face the wrath of the anti-christ and the great whore church. And the anti Christ will make war in the saints, Rev 7:9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; ……..Rev 7:14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

            Matthew Henry says of this passage ……………………

            III. The account given to the apostle concerning that noble army of martyrs who stood before the throne of God in white robes, with palms of victory in their hands: and notice is taken here of, 1. The low and desolate state they had formerly been in; they had been in great tribulation, persecuted by men, tempted by Satan, sometimes troubled in their own spirits; they had suffered the spoiling of their goods, the imprisonment of their persons, yea, the loss of life itself. The way to heaven lies through many tribulations; but tribulation, how great soever, shall not separate us from the love of God. Tribulation, when gone through well, will make heaven more welcome and more glorious. 2. The means by which they had been prepared for the great honour and happiness they now enjoyed: they had washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb, Rev

            You see brother, there is an army of martyrs being prepared , and they overcome the enemy by the Blood of the Lamb, the word of their testimony and they loved not their lives unto death. Now God is calling forth a people who love not their lives unto death. Even in the face of the most intense period of persecution Christianity has ever seen, this fragrant remnant army shall stand strong and not be afraid to be led away, just as their Jesus was led away for them. If they hated Jesus then they will surely hate us. If Jesus overcame them by His Blood, His love and His forgiveness then we too shall overcome in just the same manner. Now we have actually seen this in measure all down through the centuries where Gos remnant church were martyred, actually millions of them. Darkness has to try and defeat light, but it cannot. And the greatest darkness man has ever known is just on the horizon. They will be coming for us brother if we are that generation. It is written. And what were we called too? To fight them? Yes, on our knees. And how to we ight the darkness? By being a witness, which interestingly enough is the same Greek word for martyr. In Matt 24 it is written that the Gospel shal be preached in the all the world ” for a witness,” and then the end shall come. And so, the Jesus, who is the lamb that was led to the slaughter, the innocent Lamb who was slain for the unrighteous, led the way. And all those who follow Him and live Godly in HIm shall be persecuted. And yet, the great persecution to come will like none other, and unless God shortened those days there would be none left. This is our calling brother. It is a great an noble calling……………….bro Frank

  2. Robert Taylor said

    AMEN and AMEN. You are the first one yet that I have seen with enough spiritual discernment to tell it like it is brother Frank. What christians are indulging in today makes our Saviour weep I am sure. Christians quibbling over a piece of scrub land with a few cattle on it, is an abomination. 2 Timothy 1 and verse 7 says,”For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” If there is one thing that I perceive as I look around me, it is the fact that most christians have abandoned the spirit of love, and totally lost their spiritual sanity. But praise God forever, there is a small remnant that are still standing their ground. I know a few of them, but not many. Bless you brother Frank. I don’t get a chance to visit you very often, but when I do, I walk away spiritually lifted up. Blessings from Mexico my brother….Robert

    LOVED this post! A real message from God. I have noticed that many Christian blogging friends in the US are very politically minded and anti government, as you say. More patriotic than I’m used to. You expressed this so well.

    • appolus said

      Thank you Debbie, as a man from Scotland and one who has lived in the States for 24 years, I know all about patriotism. It is one of the most easily manipulated feelings that we have. Wolves and hirelings and politicians , for their own gain, seek to enrage people and keep them on a constant state of fear and anger. God has not given us a spirit of fear but of power and of love and a sound mind, treasure indeed in earthern vessels…………bro Frank

  4. “The remnant saints will be about their Father’s business. They will draw closer to Him as that day approaches. They will draw closer to each other as that day approaches. The other 80% will be fighting each other over political ideologies.”

    Amen brother may we seek First HIS kingdom. All the kingdoms of the earth and NOTHING and MEANINGLESS to the Lord (prophet Isaiah).

    • appolus said

      Indeed brother, as I said to sister Lynn …..”we are all capable of being distracted, we all must beware when we stand lest we fall. Yet, the beauty of Jesus and His presence is an irresistible force, it draws us deeper into the Father’s heart. All other worldly things are beggarly. ” Turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full into His wonderful face, and the things of earth shall grow strangely dim, in the light of His glory and grace.” Oh that His saints, with a single eye, would look up and behold His glory and be done with the nonsense of this passing world. Oh how soon we shall all be standing before His throne and be so taken with Him as to marvel at how we were ever distracted by such foolishness. ………….bro Frank http://youtu.be/jMYZICnV2Ys

    Thank You brother Frank, there is great wisdom in what you have said, it can be a distraction, and I myself need to be more careful not to be so distracted, led of the Holy Spirit in all our ways, may we become more eternally minded our focus on Christ and the Harvest. This is our calling, his witness, may our walk reflect him more and more.

    Revelation says “the kingdoms of the world become the kingdoms of our God” The kingdom of God is a totally other than kingdom. It does not reform, or even take over the kingdoms of the world, it becomes the kingdoms of the world. That is also not by force or by the hands of man like the tower of Baabal. It is by the power of the spirit like on the day of Pentecost. I use those two examples because if you read of these two accounts in the bible you will see Baabal was judged by God and their language was changed to confuse their unity. On the day of Pentecost that Judgement was reversed and they all heard the gospel of the kingdom in their own language. Unity of the spirit is what will bring to pass the kingdom of God in this world, not mans own hands.

    This was a very much needed post Frank. I would go as far as to say that even pledge of allegiance to the American flag is an offense to our God. The only allegiance for the ecclesia should be to our King the Lord Jesus.

    • appolus said

      Good thoughts Tim ” Unity of the Spirit is what will bring to pass the kingdom of God.” Amen and indeed it will. The Kingdom of God of course already courses through our veins and God will bring to pass the unity that you speak of, this is the great promise of the high priestly prayer of Jesus in John 17……………………bro Frank

    Simple answer to question on recent government, Yes!

    Return question since there is no middle ground between love and hate, “Do you love the government?”

    If there are no limits to government then we will have “unlimited government”, coming soon BTW. Human government is a necessary evil in an evil world that refuses to be ruled by conscience. However when ruled by conscienceless government even greater evil abounds as rather than protecting conscience, they attempt to force people against conscience into bondage.

    True justice can only be upheld by the just, when the unjust take over the means of justice there is only ever injustice. Conscience is required to uphold proper justice, without conscience in the police or military all turns to injustice. This is why the purge of Christians from military command must happen prior to the reign of AC. Present government is just setting up for the closer…and since I am not on his side I answer in the affirmative to your question.

    • appolus said

      Thank you for your honesty Joe. The answer to your question to me is the answer the Lord gave to those who crucified Him ( was there a greater lawlessness?) and the answer that Stephen gave when he was being stoned and the answer that Richard Wormbrand gave when he wept at a meeting and he explained that his tears were because he should have loved the communists more.

      If you read the post Joe, you will see that I mentioned Nero and his government. He lives in infamy for his depravity and his lawlessness. When Paul writes Romans, guess who is in charge Joe? What did Jesus say about the Roman government? The same government who massacred children in an attempt to kill him when he was a child? Joe, if you are looking for an excuse to hate this government then you will find it, but you will not find it within the confines of Jesus, the Scriptures or the Holy Spirit…………bro Frank

  9. Old Joe said

    In your response you failed to notice the distinction between “government” and “individuals within in government.” Christ always dealt with individuals, never with governments. Even before the Sanhedrin He dealt with individuals, which is where Nicodemus came from. Present government governs with laws and statutes created by many who are now dead. Each step of the way the noose against liberty has been tightened just as the Lord said it would to Israel when they asked for government below. It was a great evil but they did so because they had rejected the Lord.

    1 Samuel 8:5-7 And said unto him, Behold, thou art old, and thy sons walk not in thy ways: now make us a king to judge us like all the nations.
    But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the LORD.
    And the LORD said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them.

    Then it continues what government would look like, and behold, this is exactly what happened (and continues).
    1 Samuel 8:8-22 According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt even unto this day, wherewith they have forsaken me, and served other gods, so do they also unto thee.
    Now therefore hearken unto their voice: howbeit yet protest solemnly unto them, and shew them the manner of the king that shall reign over them.
    And Samuel told all the words of the LORD unto the people that asked of him a king.
    And he said, This will be the manner of the king that shall reign over you: He will take your sons, and appoint them for himself, for his chariots, and to be his horsemen; and some shall run before his chariots.
    And he will appoint him captains over thousands, and captains over fifties; and will set them to ear his ground, and to reap his harvest, and to make his instruments of war, and instruments of his chariots.
    And he will take your daughters to be confectionaries, and to be cooks, and to be bakers.
    And he will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your oliveyards, even the best of them, and give them to his servants.
    And he will take the tenth of your seed, and of your vineyards, and give to his officers, and to his servants.
    And he will take your menservants, and your maidservants, and your goodliest young men, and your asses, and put them to his work.
    He will take the tenth of your sheep: and ye shall be his servants.
    And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and the LORD will not hear you in that day.
    Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel; and they said, Nay; but we will have a king over us;
    That we also may be like all the nations; and that our king may judge us, and go out before us, and fight our battles.
    And Samuel heard all the words of the people, and he rehearsed them in the ears of the LORD.
    And the LORD said to Samuel, Hearken unto their voice, and make them a king. And Samuel said unto the men of Israel, Go ye every man unto his city.

  10. Old Joe said

    The point is:

    EVERY form of human government ends in utter and complete failure and will continue to do so until Christ sets up His theocratic Monarchy.

  11. appolus said

    The point is Joe, the state of our hearts. Do we regard hatred and bitterness , or is love the foundation of our freedom. The liberty that you mentioned is a political liberty that is created and given by men and can be taken at a moments notice. The freedom of the scriptures is received by Jesus and no man or laws can touch it. He wh the Son sets free is free indeed, it has nothing to do with men or their systems . God bless you Joe……………bro Frank

  12. Old Joe said

    Frank the point is, human government whether political or religious is THE most used tool of Satan in building his kingdom, and will ultimately be the single tool used in setting up the reign of AC, which is why God stated that in preferring the governance of a King over the governance of God was a rejection of Himself. Ergo because I love God and hate Satan, I love being governed by conscience direct from God and hate the government of conscienceless minions creating and hiding behind legislation whose ultimate goal is to put iron yokes on the necks of mankind and build the kingdom of AC.

    The foundation of my freedom is neither hatred nor love, it is the blood of Christ, period. When human government stifles the proclaiming of this freedom to others, it is evil, pure and simple. We are called to “Hate the evil , and love the good, and establish judgment in the gate…”

    People talk much about the scriptures today but the truth of them are stifled as much as they were in the dark ages, then by elimination/restriction, today by ignorance, dilution and interpretation….but always by enemies of God.

    “He who the Son sets free is free indeed, it has nothing to do with men or their systems.”

    I am free indeed from the penalty my sin deserves, this liberty was made available to me partly because men before me fought against government for liberty of conscience and by God’s grace succeeded (think Tyndale, Bunyan and others). This liberty has something to do with men and their systems, just ask the North Koreans….

    • appolus said

      Hi Joe. Let me give you an example of the freest man I know from the Scriptures, Paul, in the dungeon after midnight and after having been scourged almost to death, singing praises to God and the power of God falling on that place. This is the freedom of God. Given by God and something no man or system can take away. So it is clear we disagree on what freedom is and not likely to resolve that. Let us agree to disagree and may the Lord bless you Joe…………………bro Frank

      • Old Joe said

        Paul had two freedoms and clearly showed them, one was spiritual allowing him freedom in a dungeon, the other was practical allowing him freedom to live according to conscience. There is a very clear distinction made that there are both free and bond among believers, and that if we have the opportunity to live free we should use it. In the same manner we should defend the chance as well so others may have it.

        1 Corinthians 12:13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.

        Acts 22:27-28 Then the chief captain came, and said unto him, Tell me, art thou a Roman? He said, Yea.
        And the chief captain answered, With a great sum obtained I this freedom. And Paul said, But I was free born.

        1 Corinthians 7:21 Art thou called being a servant? care not for it: but if thou mayest be made free, use it rather.

        The problem is that so far I don’t see you forsaking your practical freedom to bring spiritual freedom to those without practical freedom. It is easy to sit in your comfy chair and talk about practical freedom being of no value to you, but another thing to forsake it. North Korea could use some missionaries willing to forsake practical freedom….

        • appolus said

          Hi Joe, this is not a place where we attack each other. Please refrain from doing that. We can disagree about the nature of freedom without resorting to finger pointing. And I do disagree with building a whole doctrine on a single scripture where Paul appeals to his Roman citizenship to avoid a flogging. That same system killed him and hundreds of thousands of our brothers and sisters. If you cannot comment in love Joe, please do not comment at all…………bro Frank

    Hi,brother:

    Definitely a spot-on word to the Church (especially American Church) in our time

    Old Joe pinpoints the problem of Christians’ involvement in politics: that it is a human means of governance, and “EVERY form of human government ends in utter and complete failure…”

    Your reply pinpoints WHY involvement in politics is a problem for Christians: “The point is…the state of our hearts.”

    On that point, your original post well-said that America’s nationhood began in rebellion (and as today, towards taxes). It seems clear that the “anti-government” spirit, then as now, is quintessentially rebellion: and clear that hearts whose operative spirit is rebellion are none of Christ’s.

    In Jesus, Steve

  16. Steve said

    Realizing that numbers are not the issue, it may yet be of interest to note one number in support of Ravenhill’s estimate of “actual Christians” in America. The Barna Group, a Christian demographic-research organization, did a study about 10 years ago on Christian belief in America.

    Their findings were that 4% of American Christians base their decisions on a “Biblical worldview.” The study commented,

    “The primary reason people do not act like Jesus is because they do not think like Jesus. Although most people own a Bible and know some of its contents, most Americans have little idea how to integrate core biblical principles to form a unified and meaningful response to challenges and opportunities of life.”

    In Jesus, Steve

  17. Hello Brother Frank. Interesting post. I believe part of the problem…just part of it…is the lack of understanding that being a disciple of Jesus is completely spiritual.

    When we completely surrender to Christ as our Master, we surrender our “rights” and then put aside worldly things. If not, we begin fighting for morality under the guise of the Christian spiritual life. We were not called to be moral. Some of the most moral-minded people were the Jews. They lived by the law, which was a moral code.

    Yet Christ, our Master, imparted a whole new way of living which was by the Spirit. Jesus did not come to make people moral. He came to impart the Spirit. We are called to be spiritually minded people. From a spiritual mind comes morality, or the fruit of the Spirit. The other way around and it becomes a works-oriented effort. In my opinion, I think the evil one loves it when we fight our battles on morals because it detracts us from the spiritual.

    What I see in our country is a fight for morality much like the zealots of Israel. While being moral is good, Christ actually brings us a deeper journey; one of the Spirit which removes the darkness and brings light into our hearts and minds for eternity. When we begin “fighting” for the spiritual life, our light will then shine and people will glorify our Father because of our good fruit. Blessings to you.
