The long winter- The remnants roots

Posted by appolus on January 5, 2015

As I write this, we happen to be in the depths of winter. It is January and there are some dark days ahead of course. Spring seems like a long way away. I would like you to consider the tree in winter. It loses all of its foliage. It stands stark and naked and bare against the cold winter sky. There seems to be no life in it at all. Yet there it stands. All activity seems to be suspended yet the root system continues to grow as the ground temperature a few feet below the surface is warmer. In the depths of winter, the roots grow deeper. This is the season of the remnant. We are in the midst of a long winter which will only end with the return of Jesus. This long winter is by design. God is establishing a people who cannot be moved. He is allowing everything to be stripped away. All the foliage, all the pretty adornments that we have added over countless centuries are simply being stripped away. The traditions of men appeal to the world, it compensates for a lack of reality. Yet God has a remnant who simply must have Him. A people who, no matter what happens, will follow God and stand upon His Word. Stand firm brothers and sisters, be encouraged. You are not alone. Your trials, your tribulations your feelings of isolation are by design. God must have an end time people who will follow Him no matter how fierce the storm. His people must have deep roots and these roots must be developed. This is where we are, this is where you are. The article below by T.A.Sparks speaks well to our current state and why we must endure and overcome…….bro Frank

And the remnant… shall again take root downward, and bear fruit upward. (Isaiah 37:31)
