When people use the word remnant today it usually means “leftover”. When you replace the carpet in your house the small piece that is left over is the “remnant”.
What does “Remnant” mean in the Bible”
Scripturally speaking, the meaning of the word “Remnant” goes far deeper than that. In the Bible, the “remnant” is the “survivors”.
The calling that God has placed on our heart here at Healing and Revival is to help prepare God’s people for life today and perhaps even more; the days ahead here in America, and even around the world.
Will God give you what you need when you need it?
Some people think that God just automatically and instantaneously “zaps” a person in time of need to help them through it. While He certainly may do that, it is not His usual approach.
Apostle Paul underwent intense training for his ministry
Many think that when Apostle Paul was converted, in Acts chapter 9, he just automatically set off on his dynamic ministry. However, that couldn’t be farther from the truth. It is said that Apostle Paul almost certainly had the Torah (first five books of the Bible) memorized by the time he was only five years old. Of course, his training and education grew and expanded from that.
However, after his conversion in Acts 9, Apostle Paul went out and spent three years in the Arabian desert being trained by Yeshua Himself before stepping out to fulfill his ministry.
It is said that Apostle Paul would have been educated to a point equivalent to 3-5 PhD’s in America today. Apostle Paul most certainly would have expounded upon his years of Torah study as Yeshua enlightened Paul about all that the Scriptures spoke of Him.
God often prepares people many years or decades in advance to fulfill their ultimate destiny
According to the Bible, this is how we often see God working; preparing people years in advance for the destiny that He has for them. For example, God whittled Gideon’s Army from 10,000 down to 300 in order to fight the Midianites who were probably several hundred thousand strong.
Not only did Yahweh God whittle the number down to 300 but he chose only those who were most well trained and combat-ready: Skills they had probably been perfecting all of their lives. We see this approach all through the Scriptures in places like Revelation. Daniel, Ezekiel, Zechariah, Zephania, Isaiah: Even the first few chapters of Genesis. We see God working this way in numerous Bible figures including Moses, Abraham, Jacob, David, and others.
God is raising up and equipping His called-out ones even now
Likewise, that is exactly what Yahweh God is doing now. He is raising up, training, and equipping His Saints that will represent Him in some very, very tumultuous days ahead.
Revelation chapter 12:9-11 reveals quite a lot to us about the Remnant of God.
And the great dragon was cast down, the old serpent, he that is called the devil and the satan, the deceiver of the whole world; he was cast down to the earth, and his angels were cast down with him.
And I heard a great voice in heaven, saying, Now is come the Salvation, and the power, and the Kingdom of our God, and the authority of His Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, who accuses them before our God day and night.
And they overcame him bythe blood of the Lamb, and the word of their testimony; and they loved not their life even unto death.
A major war between good and evil
The battle between good and evil, God and the satan has been going full-on every since the satan rebelled against God in Heaven. Most have been totally unaware of it or unable to comprehend it.
However, the reason the world seems so out of control now is because evil is increasing. The powers of the devil are being unleashed, setting the stage for a great war between those committed to the Most High and those committed to the satan.
There will be no fence riding and no non-combatants. Everyone has the opportunity to choose what side they are on.
These Scriptures are so very revealing to us. Almost every word is a wealth off information. The battle that is here and will only intensify with time will involve every aspect of your being; spirit, soul, and body. God’s chosen ones would do well to seek Him as we prepare, in every way, for what is coming.
In the audio teaching above I review as much of the listed Scripture as time would allow in regards to its relationship to what I am addressing here. Even still, due to time constraints, I didn’t even skim the surface.
If you are being called to be a part of that Remnant that God is calling out, or if you want to be, you will want to listen to this message and stay connected for much more to come.
Revelation 12:9-11 The Passion Translation
So the great dragon was thrown down once and for all. He was the serpent, the ancient snake called the devil, and the satan, who deceives the whole earth. He was cast down into the earth and his angels along with him.
Then I heard a triumphant voice in heaven proclaiming:
“Now salvation and power are set in place,
and the Kingdom reign of our God
and the ruling authority of his Anointed One
For the accuser of our brothers and sisters,
who relentlessly accused them
day and night before our God,
has now been defeated—cast out once and for all!
They conquered him completely
through the blood of the Lamb and
the powerful word of his testimony.[c]
They triumphed because they did not love and cling
to their own lives, even when faced with death.
There will certainly be challenges, and the Bible is clear that there will be many casualties: But the Remnant of God will prevail as we look to the Captain of the Hosts!
