God's Righteous Remnant Few Christians know what constitutes a "righteous nation" for they have never been taught the truth by the Judeo-Christian clergy. Most believe that a nation is the sum total of its people; what they are; what they do. Then what makes them sufficiently "righteous" to influence their nation's character, and how many of them does it take for this purpose? Where do we, in the United States, stand as measured out on this scale?
Never at any time has there been a nation composed entirely of righteous people. Not even God's True Israel people. Even during the Exodus, when the people had witnessed many miracles by the hand of God; saw His presence in the pillar of cloud and fire every day, the great mass of the people were either actively or passively unrighteous. While Moses was on Mt. Sinai, receiving the law of God, part of the nation of Israel was actively wicked, demanding that Aaron make them an idol god, the golden calf; most of the nation passively followed them into wickedness; and only Moses and the Tribe of Levi remained faithful to Almighty God.
So it has always been, the people are divided into three classes; the few good people, who are God's Righteous Remnant; the somewhat larger group who are especially evil; and the huge middle group, neither very good nor especially bad. The especially evil group would completely and permanently ruin and destroy the whole nation, if they were allowed to live very long; therefore, God has had to wipe them out, many times, in order to save anything of the nation. Think about it, the heavy loss of life on many occasions, when God had to discipline them on the Exodus; the repeated wars with the Philistines; the Assyrian conquest of Israel and the Babylonian conquest of part of Judah, etc. There was no point in trying to save them by "conversion;" they were not capable of it. Preaching to a scorpion never accomplishes anything; nor does preaching to an anti-christ Jew.
The so-called Patriot community is constantly trying to rouse the masses to the dangers they face in the loss of weapons, freedoms, and etc. Yet we know that the majority of our Israel people care little about being disarmed as is represented in the wars with the Philipines, when they were conquered and were not allowed a sword, spear, knife or anything sharp, including plow shares. They were not allowed to even have black-smiths to make such weapons and sharpen them, and they really didn't care. The masses have never minded losing their freedoms as was demonstrated in the Book of Judges, and in the present day here in America and in the other Christian nations of the west. Look at Australia, England and etc., the masses are decadent and have allowed the government to confiscate their weapons. In America we are faced with the same thing, it is just taking a little longer than it did in the other countries.
The large middle group; never able to be actively good, yet only followers of evil, not originators of it, has always constituted the great bulk of the nation. Since they never rise to the greatness of true goodness, and periodically lapse into all kinds of evil, why has God kept them in existence? Only because, without them there would not be a nation. Remember that all of God's promises to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and David were that Israel would be a nation before Him forever. The promise was never that there would be only a few righteous persons among their descendants, but that there would be a great nation and a company of nations. Although incapable of good in itself, the nation could be God's servant under the leadership of God's Righteous Remnant. "Except the Lord of Hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like Gomorrah." (Isaiah 1:9) Then in Genesis 18:26-32, God revealed to Abraham that even a small righteous remnant in Sodom; as few as 10 persons, could have saved it.
In Old Testament time, this Righteous Remnant were singled out for special service to God. In the Hebrew language, they were called the "Qahal" a word meaning those "selected and called out" from among the mass of the nation. They included the priests; both Aaronic and Levitical, and the heads of the Tribes. It was their job to see that the whole nation was guided into the paths of righteousness so clearly marked out by the prophets. When they would and could do this, the nation reached great heights of civilization and prosperity. And the United States is the best example of this, for it was founded by Christians doing their best to do God's will. They were not perfect, but their faith reaped us a great reward; the greatest nation the world has ever known.
Oh, boy, some at this time, will be wondering, "How could the Remnant save the nation, when the Remnant themselves were so imperfect and are themselves presently under the control of Mystery Babylon? Psalm 14:2-3 say, "he LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one." Paul also quotes this in Romans 3:10-12. Yet God has always found a way to use His remnant for His own special purpose. Eve was not sinless, yet in Genesis 3;15 God declared that the Redeemer would be one of her descendants. Abel was presumably as sinful as other men; yet we are told in Hebrews 11:14 that "By faith, Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous. God testifying of his gifts; and by it, being dead, he yet speaketh." While he was comparatively good as men go, Noah must have had his share of human faults; but we are told that "By faith, Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith." (Hebrews 11:7) Abraham also had his sins, yet "For what saith the scriptures: Abraham believed God, and IT WAS COUNTED UNTO HIM FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS." (Romans 4:3)
This was God's plan from the beginning; He knew that even the best of His creatures would not be able to achieve righteousness by man's own goodness; so God prepared to give them His own righteousness. In Isaiah 54:17, He says: "No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and THEIR RIGHTEOUSNESS IS OF ME, saith the Lord." This is the very essence of Christianity! All men have sinned; even the Remnant, and have justly earned the penalty of death; but God has paid that penalty for us in the death of Jesus Christ upon the stake; and if we believe God in this, He imputes to us the perfect righteousness of Christ. "Their righteousness is of me." The great mass of people never obtain even this; only a remnant ever did or ever will.
Isaiah 10:20‑22: "And it shall come to pass in that day, that THE REMNANT of Israel, and such as are escaped of the house of Jacob, shall no more again stay upon him that smote them; but shall stay upon the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, in truth. THE REMNANT shall return, even THE REMNANT of Jacob, unto the mighty God. 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."
During most of the Old Testament times, the nation Israel was nominally faithful to God; that at all times there were some apostates among them, and several times almost the entire nation lapsed into idolatry. In New Testament times, the Israel nations have been nominally Christian; yet at all times there have been relatively few who truly understood their religion and were more than nominal Christians. Today, the "churches" are becoming only "social service" organizations, forgetting Almighty God and His Laws while they concentrate all their attention and efforts on "social problems" such as slums and integration of races, and following the dictates of those that hate Christ. Therefore, we ask the apostate Judeo-Christian clergy: "And Jehu the son of Hanani the seer went out to meet him, and said to king Jehoshaphat, SHOULDEST THOU HELP THE UNGODLY, AND LOVE THEM THAT HATE THE LORD? therefore is wrath upon thee from before the LORD." (2 Chronicles 19:2) There is little, if anything, left of Christianity but the mere name, empty of all that it originally contained as shown in the Bible. This "Churchianity" can never save even its own followers.
Yet there has always been God's Righteous Remnant in the nation; and for the sake of that Remnant God has spared the nation. So it has always been, and so it will be. "What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but THE ELECTION HATH OBTAINED IT, and the rest were blinded." (Romans 11:7) As always before, there exists in the national the group of actively evil people, like a cancer, which must be cut out and destroyed; and the greater mass of the people who have been blinded are led astray by the evil; and the greater mass of the people who have been led astray by the false Judeo-Christian clergy and the evil ones must be severely disciplined. Therefore, the days soon to come will bring terrific destruction and loss of life. But also there is the small Righteous Remnant, for whose sake Almighty god has always spared His people Israel from complete destruction; and for whose sake He will spare it now.
Therefore, on this Thanksgiving Day of November 27, 1997; one of the most holy days in Israel, PRAISE ALMIGHTY GOD, THE LORD JESUS CHRIST THAT HE HAS CHOSEN TO REVEAL THE ISRAEL TRUTH TO YOU, BECAUSE THAT PROVES YOU ARE AMONG THE BEST OF ISRAEL, GOD'S RIGHTEOUS REMNANT! PRAISE GOD IN TRUTH AND RIGHTEOUSNESS TODAY, FOR THERE MAY NOT BE MANY DAYS LEFT BEFORE HE RAINS DESTRUCTION DOWN ON THE UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.
