Making war with the remnant

Posted by appolus on January 2, 2019

Rev 12:17  And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Much has been written about “the woman,’and her “seed,” Who is the woman,?Who is the seed,? Who is the remnant? You can read any number of books and articles on this subject. I don’t want to write about that today. I have written many times about the remnant, indeed my website is entitled “A call to the Remnant,” and my Facebook page is simply called “The Remnant.” Yet you wont be able to read anything I write, then fit me into a certain eschatological camp. Now you will know that I do not believe in a pre-tribulation rapture, but that is about it.

I want to focus on the last few words of the above verse. When talking about the remnant of her seed John describes them. He finishes the sentence by saying they are those who “keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” Let me ask you something saint. Do you have the testimony of Jesus Christ in your life? Do you keep His Word? Then you are the remnant of God and you have an enemy that has made war against you.

In the latter days, which I believe we are in, then the enemy will come against the saints for a “final solution,” if you like because his time is short and he knows it. He will not come after folks simply because they are called “Christian.” He will not come after the apostate church and denominations that already do his bidding such as approve of abortion and sanction gay marriage and so on. Why would he? They are a vital ally to him as he seeks to weed out the wheat from among the tares. In Christendom today we see a field of tares and among them are stalks of wheat. And so, how to identify them? You will know them by the fact that they have a testimony. Every genuine saint has a testimony of Christ in them. And if called to give their testimony the saint gladly gives it. He or she will tell you how they were born again, how they became a new creature in Christ. They will rejoice in the retelling of that story.

They will also live exemplary lives. They will not be perfect people but their lives will glorify God. In their communities people will know of them because of the change in their lives, their very lives are a testimony to the power of God. Hundreds of years ago, many genuine saints were identified for execution because everyone in their towns or villages knew them because of their exemplary lives. Now this flies in the face of those who preach cheap grace, but that’s ok. As it was then, so now shall it be. The very lives of the saints will identify them. Their love for one another and their love for the truth will mark them. This too has always been the case. A genuine saint will never and could never deny the truth of Christ in them or the Word of God. They will not compromise with the world. Their very lack of compromise identifies them for the enemy. He will know who to make war with and his fury will be boundless, but be of good cheer saint for the Word of God says in the very same chapter that ……………….

And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
(Rev 12:11)

So brothers and sisters, the enemy can and will make war against us. His power and fury will be great but blessed is the name of the Lord for He who is within us is greater than he who is in the world. By the blood of the Lamb we stand justified before a Holy God and no power that exists can ever take us out of Hid hand. By the testimony of Jesus Christ in us we stand as a witness, as a light that shines into the darkness. And because of that , because we have already died and been born again, we fear not the death of this body nor the one who can kill this body, but we magnify the one who has the power not only over our bodies but over our eternal souls. In this we stand. If He is for us, who can be against us?
