A Call To The Remnant

If I were hungry I would not tell you

Posted by appolus on February 25, 2020

In psalm 50 we see a rebuke and a warning from God to the people who are called by His name. God never changes and His rebukes and warnings stand so that all of Christendom can read them and apply it to themselves. False professors of the Gospel take note. There is a warning in the psalm that is truly terrifying “Now consider this you who forget God lest I tear you to pieces and there be none to deliver.” (PSALM 50:22) Who are these people that God speaks to in such terms that when heard the very universe shakes? But to the wicked God says “what right have you to declare My statutes or take My covenant in your mouth seeing that you hate instruction and cast My words behind you.” These people are people who are going through the motions of serving God, they go to church every Sunday, they partake in programs and tithe and so on yet His Word is “cast behind them.”

They hate instructions and the Word of God is not before them, it is behind them. It is not a lamp unto their feet nor a light unto their path, they walk their own paths. Rather, since the Word is behind them it creates a shadow before them. There is a form of a man in the shadow but it has no substance. When thou saw a thief, then thou consented with him, and have been partaker with adulterers.(Psa 50:18) Those who have left the Word behind them yet continue to to proclaim the name of Jesus, they are robbers and thieves. By their actions they diminish the glory of God to a dying world. They seek the favor of that world as a man seeks the favor of a prostitute. They seek many lovers from the world because God is not the lover of their souls. Because of the this darkness they are given over to evil thoughts and their tongues speak deceiving words out of the abundance of their evil hearts.

They slander and accuse and misrepresent those who are called their brothers, They sit in the seat of the scornful and falsely accuse the saints. Down through the ages, saints from every generation have been accused and slandered by the religious authorities who declare His statues and take His name in their mouths. They accused them of pride and arrogance because they stood upon the truth of which they love so much that they loved not their own lives unto death. And death was the lot for many of them at the hands of wicked men. These wicked men hated the saints because their light, the word and the truth, went before them and contrasted with the wicked and with their shadow and darkness because they had put the truth behind them.

Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice(Psa 50:5) God has gathered for Himself His saints who know Him by sacrifice, the sacrifice of His most Holy Son Jesus. His wrath is not for them. Just like the saints in Ezekiel chapter nine whose heads are marked by the ink-horn of the angel, the destroying angels passes over them. They are marked by the ink-horn because they cry out to God day and night for the state of Jerusalem. God has given them a love of the truth and they see it trampled in the streets and in the public square. What can the righteous do if the foundations are destroyed? They cry out to God and mourn for the state of what calls itself after God. As the darkness comes in like a flood in our day, so to rises the hatred in the hearts of religious men who despise the saints. God raises up a standard in the saint that directly opposes and contradicts those who seek to please and compromise with the world.

The religious are ashamed and angered by the saint who follows hard after the Lord and His word that is ever before them. They find much more common ground with the world than they do with the saint and this is a reflection of their darkness. They are ashamed of words like “sin,” because they know the world mocks such words. They are ashamed of any stand for righteousness for what they dread most is to be rejected by a mocking world of which they are a part. In truth, they have the world before them and not God therefore the world is what directs their paths and not the Word. Something has to give and in order to hold onto their place in the world then the Word itself is rejected in favor of a watered down version of what they claim to believe as to make it more palatable to their lovers.

Saints, God is not mocked. What a man sows he shall reap. The men who reject God in favor of the world shall reap the world and the judgement to come. They will cry out “but Lord we declared your statutes and we voiced your covenants and we performed religious ceremonies in your name.” And the Lord will say “depart from me you workers of iniquity for I never knew you.” And there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth and eternal darkness for those who sullied the name of the Lord in the eyes of the world. They feared the world more than they feared God and now they must face a fearful God. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the Living God. God Almighty, today we lift up your name by the blood and the sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ. Let the eyes of the blind be opened and the scales fall from them before it is too late. Let the true state of Christendom be opened to all who would have eyes to see and ears to hear what the Spirit says to the churches.

    Hi Frank. I have to say there’s much in this post I don’t agree with. God doesn’t change but the covenant God made with isreal has changed. There’s a new covenant with better promises. I’m not saying isreal has been cast aside, God will not cast aside his people whom he for-knew. All that aside, The new covenant promises that God will not be angry with us and he will not forsake us because Jesus is the mediator of the new covenant, and Jesus was made sin for us he who knew no sin. The old covenant is based on wrath and condemnation and death, and brings about a sin consciousness, the new is the ministry of life, and where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty. The new covenant makes us true overcomers, not out of fear but because we have been born again and have the power of God to live this overcomer life, Christ in you the hope of glory. God has not given us the spirit of bondage again to fear, but we have been adopted as Sons whereby we cry ABBA Father. In Isaiah 53 we can see what Jesus has done for us, in Isaiah 54 we can see the results of the finished work of Christ for the whole world, whosoever will, whoever God calls may enter in and this becomes our inheritance. Isaiah 54:8-10 states that God will not be angry with us if we accept the finished work of Christ and Jesus becomes our Lord and saviour, God is not angry, God is Love, the law works wrath and brings about wrath and punishment, the goodness of God leads men to repentance. There’s much more I can say and quote scripture, and I know this to be true. I’m writing with my iPhone, and I just want to say that honestly the new covenant shows much better the true nature of God, the law couldn’t show us the heart of the Father, Jesus went about doing good, and healing all who were oppressed, Jesus said he who has seen me has seen the Father. It took 2000 years for the Law to be given, we are no longer in that time, we are in the time of restitution before the Lord returns. Jesus said because iniquity will abound the Love of many will grow cold, we must keep ourselves in the Love of God in these last days.

      Hi Elias, my post has nothing to do with the new Covenant or the old Covenant nor is it addressed to believers. It is addressed to false professors of the faith and those who will reject Jesus in the great falling away. There is no wrath for the genuine saint……………….bro Frank

      • appolus said

        P.S If you have read what I have written before you will know that when I talk about Christendom, I am not talking about the Body of Christ, I am talking about everything outside of the Body of Christ that calls themselves by His name……………….bro Frank

  2. Elias said

    Jesus rebuked the disciples when they wanted to call fire down from heaven as Elijah did, almighty God sent fire down from heaven and twice 51 people lost their lives, after Jesus died and rose we are in a new covenant, it’s not the same as the old.

    • appolus said

      Elias you will search in vain in this post or anything that I have ever written that calls down fire on anyone. God will judge the world of this there is no doubt, There is a day of reckoning coming. Is this what offends you? Are you a universalist? Do you not believe that God will judge the living and the dead? If you notice at the end of my post it cries out, not for fire, but for the eyes of the blind to be open and the scales to fall from their eyes before it is too late. So, I am not quite sure what you are referring to or talking about………………….bro Frank

    Matt 13:47-50

    47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:

    48 Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.

    49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,

    50 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
    KJV

    Brother Frank…….This is good preaching brother. This is preaching like i remember from 50 years ago before the church became lukewarm and apostate. This is preaching that one will hear when they get on the “Old Path” like Jeremiah 6:16 exorts the saints to walk on. There are only a very few today that will not be offended by what you have spoken here. 97 percent of so called christians will say, “I find fault with what you have said”. But then there is the 3 percent remnant that will say, “Preach it brother. You are telling it like it is” I stand with the 3 percent . This is a good word brother Frank. You spoke an anointed word.

    Brother Frank You love the Bride, let the fire burn !! I pray with you. The only fire is our LOVE for the Bride !! Keep crying aloud !!

    • appolus said

      Thank you sister, this makes me weep and tremble at the same time. We should never underestimate the love of God for His Bride. How much does He love her? Look to Calvary! God bless you sister………………bro Frank

    Jude

    1 Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called:
    2 Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied.
    3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
    4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
    5 I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.
    6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
    7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
    8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.
    9 Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.
    10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.
    11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.
    12 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;
    13 Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.
    14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,
    15 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.
    16 These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men’s persons in admiration because of advantage.
    17 But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;
    18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.
    19 These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.
    20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,
    21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
    22 And of some have compassion, making a difference:
    23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
    24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
    25 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.
