It is so easy today to become discouraged. Christians may feel that they are alone and that the whole world is against them; that’s why I think it is so important to have God open our eyes and remove the scales so that we may see the Lord’s Army! Who do you think is holding back destruction, Who is holding back the powers of Satan and all of his darkness? It is God, and He is doing so because He has a remnant left in this world! The world counts us as out, but we are not, our Jehovah leads us and protects us. His time has not yet come and He protects His remnant! Isaiah chapter 1:9, “Except the Lord of hosts had left unto us a remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Go-mor’rah.” Because His children are in the world He is holding back the powers of darkness and the destruction that will come one day. He judges nations, but He has not destroyed. There were not enough people in Sodom and Go-mor’rah for those places to be spared, therefore God sent His angels to get Job and his family out. Right now, here on earth, God’s people are working they are seeking Him! There are revivals going on and there are more and more sheep added to His flock daily! Therefore, because if His remnant, the world is spared from destruction. But my friends, there is coming a day when He will call all of His children home, and there will be no more remnant, no longer with the hands of darkness be held at bay, no longer will one be free to serve God. But God is so merciful that even in these dark and desperate times, He will reach out once more and those who will follow Him, will be spared and then all will be destroyed! This is real, it IS going to happen! If you are apart of God’s remnant be glad! If you suffer persecution don’t be dismayed my friends. This world is NOT our home, we are His remnant, we will one day be with our Lord!
