A Call To The Remnant

Peace, peace, yet there is no peace.

Jer 23:17 They say still unto them that despise me, The LORD hath said, Ye shall have peace; and they say unto every one that walketh after the imagination of his own heart, No evil shall come upon you. Jer 23:19 Behold, a whirlwind of the LORD is gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind: it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked. Jer 23:20 In the latter days ye shall consider it perfectly.

We live in strange days indeed. Days perhaps some of the older generation could never have imagined seeing. How rapidly has wrong become right? Much of Christendom is taken up with prosperity and the ways of the world. In Biblical days we would simply call it Baal worship but now the eyes are blinded to that reality. Much of Christendom is dead in that they refuse to allow the activities of the Holy Spirit in their services but the eyes are blinded to that reality. Much of Christendom now ordains homosexual ministers in open rebellion to the Word of God but their eyes are blinded to that reality.

In all of the above cases men are walking after the imaginations of their own heart. Their wisdom is earthly and sensual and certainly does not flow from a Holy God but from the unholy gods of this world. They are at ease in their sin and do not consider that there is a coming storm, a whirlwind that is coming with a fury. It will only be apparent to the wicked as it crashes down on their heads. It is a terrible thing to be given over to blindness.

Yet in every generation God has His servants. They are a witness to the truth. They are lovers of the truth. They declare Gods word without fear or favor of men. They despise flattery as this is a common tool of the blind who encourage the blind. They are exhorters. They encourage the saints and they reach out to the wicked. They have an indignation for the honor and the glory of God that causes them to run to the battle. David was indignant when he heard the giant mock God’s people. There are mocking giants today filled with the same evil spirits who mock and try to intimidate God’s children. Yet praise God, the same Spirit that filled David and caused him to triumph over Goliath fills the saints in these the latter days.

Jer 23:30 Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that steal my words every one from his neighbour.

The false prophets of this age steal from those who genuinely know God and who are led and speak by His Spirit. They take what they want and they mix it with their own imaginations. They are like the narcissist who is incapable of feelings and can only mimic what they see. And so they steal the word of God and mix it with the ways of the world and they come up with abominations. In doing so they have incurred the wrath of God and will be blind to the coming storm which begins first at the house of God for that is where we find the false prophet who seeks to gain followers, standing, reputation and money.

The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? saith the LORD. Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces? (Jer 23:28-29)

The word of the false prophet is smooth and flattering and self-indulgent. They pat each other on the back and congratulate themselves. They are at ease in Babylon. Yet the true word of God is like a fire says the Lord, it is like a hammer that breaks the rocks in pieces. It has a dynamic force that causes a tumult. It penetrates and thoroughly pierces the hard hearts of men. Men are stabbed in the heart by the penetrating word of God. We see this when Peter preaches after Pentecost and three thousand are saved. We also see it when Stephen preaches and is stoned to death. In each case the scriptures use the phrase ” they were stabbed in the heart.” The true word of God spoken by those filled by Gods Spirit will always cause a violent reaction either unto life or unto death but never unto ease.

Stand fast brothers and sisters. We live in dark days for sure but we are not like those who dwell in darkness for the light of Christ is in us. The Word of God is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path. “Bless the Lord o my soul for you are great and you are clothed with honor and majesty and you cover yourself with light.” Lord may we walk in this light as you are in the light. Let us have fellowship one with another, the children of the light. In the mighty name of Jesus, whose name is above every other name, we pray these things. Lord pour out your blessing upon the Body of Christ that we may begin to stand as one in these final days, amen.
