The Church is a “People Called Out” taken out from society to Serve The Lord…
And, in these “Last Days” there is going to be a “Remnant” called out from within the Church to do some very special things.
A “Remnant” in the Bible is a special group of people who are going to be “Called Out” and “Chosen” from among the Church at Large.
First, let's take a look at what The Prophet Joel says about the Remnant…
Joel 2:32 KJV
“And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord hath said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call.”
So, the “Remnant” I’m talking about is going to have extraordinary power and they will be a “Deliverance People”!
NOW... Let’s read about The Remnant in the Book of Daniel
Daniel 7:27 (KJV)
And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.
The Lord showed me that there are “layers of truth” in this verse which I had never heard anyone preach or teach before. So, let me unpack this verse for you.
Daniel 7:27 (KJV)
“And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High…”
Daniel is Prophesying that “a people” who are among the “saints of the Most High” will be given “the kingdom and dominion”!
Daniel is talking about a “Remnant”. When most people think of a “remnant” they think of a piece of carpet that is “left over” from a larger piece. But, that is not what a “Biblical Remnant” is.
So, as I’ve said, a “Remnant” in the Bible is a group of people who are “Called Out” and “Chosen” from among a the Church at Large.
And, this “Remnant” that is called out from within the Church who will be walking in “The Kingdom” and “Exercising Dominion”!
Let me tell you a little more about this Remnant People…
The Book of Ezekiel is a Book of End Time truth. It is a book of Restoration & Revelation.
In this Book we are going to see something of the ministry that is coming to the real Church, not the time-clock punching Church that so many belong to today. You know what that is… that’s where members punch in once in a while because they need to be seen… They want to make themselves feel like they’re a part of The Church… And, they may be a part of the Church at Large, but they’re not The Remnant!
And you know what? Those time clock punchers need to be seen all right ... they need to be seen for what they really are! God's not looking for people who only go to Church to save face, to appear good. He is looking for people who want to save souls!
These time-clock punching Christians are not really a part of what God is doing today. He’s not looking for time clock punching Christians; He's looking for Overcomers who have given their all to Him and to the cause of Christ!
These are the Last Days and Paul tells us that in these Last Days there are going to be people filling up Churchesbut they are only going to be there as long as they hear what they want to hear. They have itching ears but they will not endure sound doctrine that will make them grow into Christian Soldiers!
We have a battle to fight!
God is looking for Soldiers, not Sissies. He wants Soldiers who have sold out to Jesus to be in His End Time Army!
Just what is this End Time Army?
Look at what Ezekiel sees in his vision…
Ezekiel 43.1-5 "Afterward he brought me to the gate, even the gate that looks toward the East. And, behold, the Glory of God of Israel came from the way of the East: and His voice was like a noise of many waters: and the Earth shined with His Glory. And it was according to the appearance of the vision which I saw, even according to the vision that I saw when I came to destroy the city: and the visions were like the vision that I saw by the river Chebar; and I fell upon my face. (If you really get a hold of what I am preaching to you today and see what God wants of you, you will fall upon your face too) and the Glory of The Lord came into the house by the way of the gate whose prospect is toward the East. So the Spirit took me up and brought me into the inner court, - (He is talking here about the inner court... This is for those in the inner circle with Jesus) and, behold, the Glory of the Lord filled the House."
Before I get into the depths of this passage, I have to tell you about The Gates of the End Time Temple that God is building.
There are four gates, each of equal size, each facing one of the points of the compass and each of equal importance.
North in the Word speaks of judgment, testing, and trials ... it represents the cold winds of adversity! The South speaks of blessings…
Song of Solomon 4:16says; "Awake, 0 north wind; and come, thou south; blow upon my garden, that the spices thereof may flow out."
It takes both the cold north wind and the warm pleasant south wind to bring out the spices in Gods Garden. We are the garden of God and He lets the cold winds of persecution and adversity and trials blow upon us to help perfect the fruit of the Spirit in us.
We do not go through Trials because God is angry with us.
The Lord put gates on the north side of the Temple for a purpose. Because of our reluctance to suffer, we would rather He had just built a strong wall on the north side to keep the winds out!
But He put gates on south side too!
They let in blessings, prosperity, the warmth of His presence and His peace. Moreover, it takes both the goodness and the severity of God to bring us to perfection!
Now what about the Western Gate? It is there that we see the setting sun. These are the Gates of History. The testimony of what God has done in the past. God warns us not to remove the landmarks of old. They are the foundational truths that our forefathers in the Spirit set up for us as landmarks. They are the precious truths that we need to build on.
Nevertheless, you cannot sit in the Western Gate looking at the past and expect God to manifest His Glory there. Those old days were glorious and thank God for what He did in the days of old, but we must look to the future.
But you still find some Churches facing the Western Gate. They talk about how wonderful it was back then. They tell about the old-timers who gave their lives for the truths that were revealed in those days. Their song books and prayer books are filled with hundred-year-old songs and prayers.
They just keep looking at the glory of bygone days and eventually they end up in the place where they don’t believe that those days can ever be repeated or duplicated.
They just keep looking out that old Western Gate at days gone by and do nothing for the cause of Christ today.
The Eastern Gate…
Now, we are not to cast off the good things of the past but we have to look through the Eastern Gate at the dawning of a new day for the glory of the Lord to be revealed in! So some will build their Churches facing the Eastern Gate. They keep looking to the future for that “pie in the sky”. They say: “Someday the Lord will rapture us out of this rotten world.” and “Someday we will be all right in Heaven.” They are so heavenly minded that they are no Earthly good!
What Does All This Mean?
We have to go to the Book of Revelation to find out…
Revelation 1:10 (KJV)
“I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,“
Now look at Revelation 1:15 (KJV)
And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.
Revelation 19:6 (KJV)
And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.
So we see that the Voice of God was as the voice of “many waters”…
The Voice is the Voice of The Corporate Man… Jesus and the Overcomers!
It is the voice of Christ and the voice of a great multitude; “the voice of many waters”.
That means that the voice of God in these End Times is going to be the voice of a great multitude.
Who is that multitude? It is the End Time Army of God!
But wait… This is not the time clock punching Church...
Oh no! Ezekiel says: “He took me into the Inner Court”.
That’s talking about the inner circle of the Church…
Those there are the ones who will be filled with the Glory of God!
The End Time Army of God is The Remnant!
It is going to speak His Word and do marvelous & wonderful things in these Last Days.
As it says in Dan 11:32; "They that know their God shall do exploits"!
It’s not talking about those who know about Him. No! Only those that really know Him!
Although the Glory of God in the Last Days is going to come in through the Eastern Gate it’s not staying there!
It is going to go into the Inner Court, the Inner Circle of the Body of Christ; The Remnant!
It’s not coming for those who look at trials and say "They're too hard for me to overcome". Nor is it about to fall on those who reject the dealings of God and call every trial they go through "of the devil". No, these people just want the "loaves and fishes". As soon as it's time to roll up their sleeves and get down to the business of "catching fish (and cleaning them up too I might add) they say; “Oh no, not me, I'm just going to take it easy in the sunshine of Gods' blessings and take it easy until Jesus comes.”
Watch out! Don’t get caught up with that group!
Neither is it going to come for those who just sit there looking at the days of old. Not expecting anything to happen today they say “Well, the days of miracles are gone you know. We just have to thank God for salvation by faith and wait this old life out."
It’s for the Overcomer! They’re the ones who are willing to go through the trials and the storms of life. They know that God will send His blessings to them and take care of them, but they know that they just can’t sit around thinking about how wonderful it was in the days of the Apostles. They are willing to believe Gods Word and they are expecting the Glory to come.
They are pressing into the Inner Court of the House.
That's the Church within the Church. Like Ezekiel’s “wheel within the wheel”.
And, they are going to be filled with Gods' Glory and do exploits in these Last Days. They are going to usher in the return of Jesus to the earth by being a witness to the Kingdom of God. They have declared war on the Devil and have put on their armor. They are marching right up to the gates of hell ... and the Gates of hell shall not prevail against them! That's what God has in store for those who are willing to stop being time clock Christians and press on to the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus! Don’t you want to shout: “Glory”!
So, here it is…
Brothers and sisters, that Glory filled up the House Of God and it says "The earth shined with His Glory".
It wasn't the Rocky Mountains that got the Glory ... It wasn't the deserts ... it wasn't the cities.
No, it was the Remnant of Called Out Ones that get the Glory and shine!
The Glory is that "treasure we have in earthen vessels”!
It's "Christ within you" being revealed by the End Time anointing that's coming upon this Remnant people!
Not the ones who punch that old time clock! Oh no!
It's coming upon the Overcomer!
"To him that overcomes, will I grant to sit with me in my Throne, Even as I overcame and sat down with my father in His Throne.
There will be a “Remnant People”…
But, not everyone will qualify for it…
Only those who have “pressed in” and are reaching for the prize of the “High Calling” of God in Christ!
Can you see that God is calling us…
Matthew 22:14 (KJV) “For many are called, but few are chosen.”
Another translation says it this way: “For many are called but few are choosing”.
There is a price to pay to be in this Company… That’s why few chose to be a part of it.
Do you hear the Trumpet? The Voice of Many Waters?
Does your heart burn within you to be in “the Inner Circle”?
Or are your “ears itching” rather than your “heart burning”?
Say YES to God! Say YES to the Call… Say YES to the Voice…

When most people think of a “remnant” they think of a piece of carpet that is “left over” from a larger piece. But that is not what a “Biblical Remnant” is.
A “Remnant” in the Bible is a special group of people who are going to be “Called Out” and “Chosen” from among a larger group of people.
The Church is a “People Called Out” from society and in these “End Times” or “Last Days” there is going to be a “Remnant” called out from within the Church to do some very special things.
The “Remnant” I’m talking about is going to have extraordinary power and dominion given to them that the larger group does not have the privilege of having.
Let’s look at two Scriptures to see the Remnant…
The Remnant are those who are called back to The Lord!
Isaiah 10:21-22 (KJV)
The remnant shall return, eventhe remnant of Jacob, unto the mighty God. 22 For though thy people Israel be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return: the consumption decreed shall overflow with righteousness.
To put this into today… Although there are Millions of Christians in the World it’s only a Remnant who are going to serve The Lord!
Satan hates The Remnant…
Revelation 12:17 (KJV)
And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
We must never forget that we are in a War Zone! Planet Earth is Ground Zero for this Spiritual War!
Let's look at The Call of the Remnant!
And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying, Make two trumpets of silver; of a whole piece shalt you make them that you may use them for THE GATHERING of the Assembly and for the journeying of the camps. And when they shall blow with them, all the assembly will GATHER TOGETHER unto you AT THE DOOR of the Tabernacle of the Congregation.
Jesus said “I am the Door” The First thing that we see is that The Trumpet sounds for the Gathering unto Jesus!
The Spirit is blowing the Trumpets calling the people of God out of the “tents” of their Denominations and Streams “To Gather” to The Door “As One”.
The Second thing that the Trumpet sounds for is for the Journeying of the Camps.
It is Calling the Church to Move Forward!
The Trumpets are sounding to move the Church out of the “Status Quo”…
The Sound of the Trumpet Says:
Come Unto Me!
And then it says “No More Church as Usual!”
Some will not hear the Sound and just stay where they are in their tents… Some will hear the sound but will not follow… They will go their own way…
But! Some will hear the sound and Gather to The Door and then follow the Pillar of Fire by night and the Cloud by day!
The Trumpet is Sounding… Can you hear the Call?
Jesus actually talked about those who can’t hear…
Matthew 13:13-15 (NLT2) That is why I use these parables, For they look, but they don’t really see. They hear, but they don’t really listen or understand.  This fulfills the prophecy of Isaiah that says, ‘When you hear what I say, you will not understand. When you see what I do, you will not comprehend.  For the hearts of these people are hardened, and their ears cannot hear, and they have closed their eyes— so their eyes cannot see, and their ears cannot hear, and their hearts cannot understand, and they cannot turn to me and let me heal them.’
Sadly, there are too many today who are “Dull of Hearing”…
They cannot hear the Trumpet to Sound…
They cannot discern it because they are listening for the wrong reason…
They want to hear the Trumpet call them to go fly away…
We are not of that camp…
As it says in Revelation 3:22 (KJV) He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
They don’t have “Ears to Hear” what The Spirit is saying to the Churches!
But we do hear…
Look in the Book of Revelation and you will see that The Spirit is saying the same thing that Moses said!
Revelation 4:1-2 (NLT2) Then as I looked, I saw a door standing open in heaven, and the same voice I had heard before spoke to me like a trumpet blast. The voice said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must happen after this.”  And instantly I was in the Spirit, and I saw a throne in heaven and someone sitting on it.
He is Calling The Remnant to Gather “As One” to “The Door” in the Heavenlies…
Our Journeying is not to “fly away” but to “Rise Up” and “Put on Christ”!
He is calling us “Up into The Realm of The Spirit”
This is nothing but “The High Calling of God in Christ”!
Can you hear the Trumpet Sound?
Look at this in another dimension…
There are two birds in the Word that are likened to People in the Bible; The “Greater Eagle” and the “Lesser Eagle”.
The Greater Eagle is a “true” Eagle while the other is actually a Vulture.
The Lord Himself is an Eagle!
Deuteronomy 32:9-13 But the LORD’s portion is his people, Jacob his allotted heritage.  “He found him in a desert land, and in the howling waste of the wilderness; he encircled him, he cared for him, he kept him as the apple of his eye.  Like an eagle that stirs up its nest, that flutters over its young, spreading out its wings, catching them, bearing them on its pinions,  the LORD alone guided him, no foreign god was with him.  He made him ride on the high places of the land, and he ate the good of the land, and he drank honey out of the rock, and he got oil out of the flinty rock.
The “High Places” are home to an Eagle. They are the kind of places the Eagle likes to build its nest.
They are way up in the tops of mountains where no other bird can fly to.
And, the Greater Eagle is an eater of living food. It will never eat carrion. An Eagle would rather die before doing that.
The Lesser Eagle or Vulture is just the opposite.
It will never build its nest up in the “High Places”.
It builds its nest down low where it can feed on dead meat. It is a scavenger and not a hunter. It never kills its own food.
It eats the refuse of other animals or it will spot a dying animal and just wait until it dies. Then It will have a meal.
God never likens Himself to that kind of creature!
There are some Saints that are just like Vultures.
They eat the “Dead Letter” of The Word instead of enjoying the thrill of flying high into the Word and finding some Living Words to feast upon.
Vultures are rightly called Lesser Eagles.
Vultures are always hanging around “Dead Issues”.
They never delight their souls in finding “Honey in the Rock” or “Revelations” so God can “Renew their Strength”.
If you are like the Greater Eagle…
RISE UP WITH THE REMNANT!
Do you hear the Sound of The Trumpet Calling you to “The Door”?
Are you “Pressing In” to Gather with The Remnant “As One” unto Jesus?
Then it’s got to be:
No More Church As Usual!
No More being lazy…
We are called to “Press In”!
Do you hear the Trumpet calling for the Journeying of the Camps?
We are to “Come Up” for the Things of the Spirit!
No More worldly replacements for Spiritual Things!
No More allowing Things to keep you from The Gathering of the Saints!
It’s time to do what Peter said:
2 Peter 1:10-11 Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your calling and election sure! If you do these things you will never stumble; and an entrance will be abundantly opened for you into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
