Which are You: River Rats or Elite Remnant?


This may be an old subject which has been spoken many times in the past.  Some may think it out of date even and not relevant for this hour.   MANY [More than we think] are OUT OF COMMISSION and going around and around the Mountain in aimless pursuit,  just because THEY WILL NOT CROSS THE RIVER INTO THE SPIRITUAL BATTLE.

Those who were sent spies to spy out the Land, ten out of twelve, said:  WE WILL NOT DO IT BECAUSE WE SEE TOO MUCH DIFFICULTY.   The Giants were ominous to them and fearful.  They turned back and RAN.  Cowards, they definitely were, who forgot that there was a God who would empower them.

COWARDS ARE COMMON TODAY.  Yes, COMMON!   The fact is they are many today who mostly are hanging back from the commitment of the battle.  They are like Obama who does not wish to commit to any “Boots on the Ground” war while ISIS is beheading Christians Worldwide!  These “Obama-ite Christians” want to send in a few missiles to be able to say, We are doing something.  In reality, their feeble efforts are HITTING NOTHING but where the enemy [had already been] and accomplished nothing; Like Obama, they miss the REAL WAR then they claim they are doing something worth while.

Sound familiar?  The Modern day church is NON COMMITTAL.  They enjoy hanging back [Behind the enemy Lines] and enjoying their desk jobs.   PAPERWORK.  andgoing home early to watch the latest Hollywood movie from the pits of hell.

What is missing in most so called “Christian Circles” is LOVE OF THE COMMANDING OFFICER.  The fact is, they do not fully even Love him first but are thinking mostly of themselves and their personal lives.  The Apostle John was told to write about these TURNCOATS and EASY RIDERS when he talked about LUKEWARM CHRISTIANS who sit in well air conditioned and padded churches and have need of nothing.  John saw them through the Spiritual Revelation as having BLINDED VISION. They could not see clearly and needed glasses [eye salve to fight the dangerous eye infection].

Today in America MODERN CHRISTIANS have all the earmarks of [that Laodicean Church, they are in the last bunch… in the final listing of assemblies].  They are Rich with the worldly things and need holy clothing to cover their exposed nakedness, while money laundering their dirty money.  Revival Fires are needed to burn the things of the world out of them, clothe them in Holiness and turn their [saved-up securities] into active investments.  The greatest Earmark that ties them to the final Church in Revelation and to the “hang-back cowards” of Moses day is their TALK about the enemy more than the talk of a Almighty God who is more than enough.

It is encouraging to see the TWO who would not relent but kept pressing in saying WE ARE MORE THAN ABLE [the Joshua’s and the Caleb’s].   It was a small Remanent indeed, out of the twelve, that braved the wilderness and stood with Moses.  It is the small Remnant of Overcomers [in the final days of Revelation] that are said will be rising.  I see them moving out of the ranks of these Cowards, TAKING NEW VISION AND FAITH.  I see them marching, in spite of those who desire to do nothing, on to the GREATER WORKS than ever before.  Thank God for the Remnant and Overcomers who are NO COWARDS but are TAKE IT BY FORCE RADICALS [who dare to march only to one command]. 

Let me remind you that, as in Moses day, there came a time when they RETURNED TO THE RIVER CROSSING AND CROSSED OVER.  All those who would not go were [Dead in the Wilderness] but A NEW ARMY AROSE TO CROSS OVER INTO VICTORY. We love to read about Jericho and the WALLS FALLING DOWN.  Victory was in MARCHING TO THE LORD’S ORDERS and saying Nothing in Obedience; SHOUTING AT THE RIGHT TIME.  No giant could stand before them too big and the worldly attractions fell off and became unimportant to continue.  We love to hear of the VICTORY BRIGADE AND THE BATTLES FOUGHT AND WON.  Yes they were the REMNANT RISING FROM THE WILDERNESS WANDERING.  The sands of dryness and death could not hold them any longer, they marched out of their desert into the Land of Milk and Honey.  They moved at his command and did prosper.

Nobody who enjoys status quo will enter this special rank:   THE END TIME ELITE [THE SPECIAL NUMBER] OF THE REMNANT.  The fact is, the Cowards shrinking back, are like atomic fuel to this Elite Remnant;  FUEL TO THE JET ENGINE… PROPELLING POWER OF SUPERNATURAL FAITH.  They rise up from the dullness and SHINE IN THE FULLNESS.  They MOVE IN MIGHTY POWER walking out on dry land of crossing over.

30 And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it.
31 But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we.
32 And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature.
33 And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight”
  Numbers 13:30-33.
