Chapter 3

God’s Remnant

In the face of such darkness and delusion that grips our world is there hope? That’s what Elijah wondered when he prayed to die (I Kings 19:4). He thought he was all alone and that the situation was hopeless but the Lord told Elijah that He had reserved seven thousand men who had not bowed the knee to Baal (Rom. 11:2-4).

With God it’s never hopeless. He has always had His remnant, set apart  by His Spirit, reserved and preserved to Himself in spite of religious darkness. Even today there is a very small remnant, many scattered throughout the systems of men and devils, some asleep, yet capable of hearing the Master’s voice.

His voice is crying in this hour, “Wake Up!” “Come out of Babylon!” “Get ready!” “I’m about to return!”

We have Christ’s promise that “he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth.” Rom. 9:28. I believe that we are in that short quick work right now!

Rev. 10:7 says, “But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.” The seventh angel is the last one to sound his trumpet. His trumpet marks the end of the age, the return of Christ and the destruction of this present creation. Rev. 11:15-18, I Cor. 15:52, II Thess. 1:7-10, I Peter 3:10-12.

Notice the expression “the days of the voice.” The sounding of this last trumpet is not just one great blast but is a message and a signal that covers a span of time, known to God but unknown to us. We can, however, “know that it is near, even at the doors.” Matt. 24:33.

The Mystery Finished

What occurs as this last angel begins to sound is “the mystery of God” being “finished.” This is the clear revelation of truth necessary for the finishing of the work. As the remnant church receives and is transformed by this revelation of Christ, she will be made ready for the climax of this last trump: the return of our Lord, when we will be changed, “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye.” I Cor. 15:52.

The last angel has begun to sound. The voice of the Son of God is in the earth to awaken and prepare His people. Our world is filled with religious voices, each crying, “This is the way! Walk ye in it.” God’s people have been scattered, divided and put to sleep by the influence of these many voices. That time is about over. Christ both desires and has purposed that we should in this last hour positively recognize and give heed to His voice. It is the time of the Midnight Cry. Matt. 25:1-13.

How can you know? How can you distinguish His voice? How can you avoid the great deception of which Jesus warned?
