The True Remnant

The following observations are from The Epistle to Diognetus, Chapters 5and 6, written circa 100-200 A.D

“For the servants of Christ are distinguished from other men neither by country, nor language, nor the customs which they observe. For they neither inhabit cities of their own, nor employ a peculiar form of speech, nor lead a life which is marked out by any singularity. The course of conduct which they follow has not been devised by any speculation or deliberation of inquisitive men; nor do they, like some, proclaim themselves the advocates of any merely human doctrines. But, inhabiting Greek as well as barbarian cities, according as the lot of each of them has determined, and following the customs of the natives in respect to clothing, food, and the rest of their ordinary conduct, they display to us their wonderful and confessedly striking method of life. They dwell in their own countries, but simply as sojourners. As inhabitants, they share in all things with others, and yet endure all things as if foreigners. Every foreign land is to them as their native country, and every land of their birth as a land of strangers. They marry, as do all (others); they beget children; but they do not destroy their offspring. They have a common table, but not a common bed. They in the flesh, but they do not live after the flesh. They pass their days on earth, but they are citizens of heaven. They obey the prescribed laws by surpassing the laws by their lives. They love all men, and are persecuted by all. They are unknown and condemned; they are put to death, and restored to life. They are poor, yet make many rich; they are in lack of all things, and yet abound in all; they are dishonoured, and yet in their very dishonour are glorified. They are evil spoken of, and yet are justified; they are reviled, and bless; they are insulted, and repay the insult with honour; they do good, yet are punished as evil-doers. when punished, they rejoice as if quickened into life; they are assailed by the Jews as foreigners, and are persecuted by the Greeks; yet those who hate them are unable to assign any reason for their hatred.”

Raptured at Law

David Z, Brugger

Isaiah 51:22 and especially verse 23,

Thus saith thy Lord the LORD, and thy God that pleadeth the cause of his people, Behold, I have taken out of thine hand the cup of trembling, even the dregs of the cup of my fury; thou shalt no more drink it again:

But I will put it into the hand of them that afflict thee; which have said to thy soul, Bow down, that we may go over: and thou hast laid thy body as the ground, and as the street, to them that went over.

This is why our voices have been as a faint murmuring of a familiar spirit coming up out of the Earth, (Isaiah 29:4) because of the weight of these fictitious Persons/Corporations/Principalities/Idols/gods (See sons of Belial) that stand on our backs because we and our imagiNations are the only ground they have to Stand on. If we take Christ’s hand and are lifted upright then they fall off our backs and into the bottomless Abyss(Rev.9:1-4) we conjured them out of never to be seen again. Then rather than laying in adultery with our faces plowed down into the dirt with us having to look upward to see eye to eye with serpents then rather are heads are in the clouds with Christ high above all principalities and powers where we should be. That’s “Raptured” At Law. Real Men don’t bow before other men or Things and when they do they become less than women, females make better women than males do, and a Maxim of Law says that when a Man fails to maintain his proper Jurisdiction (position) he confounds the Order of All Things. That is why God says at (Hosea 4:13+14) that he will not blame our spouses and daughters if they be in whoredom, because they are separated from him as a chain is broken before their link from Him. His Peace be with you as you strife to repair the chain that keeps all connected to God Our Father through Christ His Word and us as His Lawful Assembly so that through us the women and children may find a place of shelter in the midst of a Crooked and perverse nation where we shine forth as light unto the World that is in darkness. (Philippians 2:15)

I am Convinced that

I am convinced that Christ, Moses and Abraham were all trying to teach men how to come together and be free souls under God;

That evil creates the same type of system over and over because:

  • God does not change,
  • Evil does not change and
  • Man does not choose to change.

God does not want to force you to:

  • Trust him
  • Obey him
  • Walk with him…
  • Instead God wants you to LOVE him.

Evil is not so particular in his goal for you to:

  • Join him (usurp God)
  • Judge him or
  • Judge anyone

Man is made in the image of God.

Because he turned from God he lost sight of:

  •  who he is,
  • who he should be
  • Who he was meant to be.

If Man learns to love his fellow man he has learned what evil refuses to learn.

If Man learns to sacrifice his life for others he has learned what evil does not want him to do.

If he learns to forgive others he becomes what evil cannot tolerate.

  •  Forgiven.

The systems that Jesus, Moses and Abraham were teaching were systems of voluntary:

  •  Forgiveness, Trust, Faith, Hope and Charity.
  • And also: Liberty, Industry, Diligence and Sacrifice,

The system created by evil is a system that is dependent upon just the opposite:

  •  Selfishness, Judgment, Deception, Entitlements and Covetousness.
  • And also: Control, Apathy, Avarice and Indifference.

How far these aspects can reach in our lives is dependent upon the direction of our heats and minds.

If we have been seduced, lead or are following the system of evil we should turn around, repent and follow the system of life.

One is a snare that draws us to death, the other is a path that leads us to life.

In both directions we will face death but in one we shall be devoured and in the other we shall be raised up.

The only true choice we have in this world and the next is the direction we choose to go. One is the kingdom of God that leads to life and the other is the world, the flesh and evil, bringing death and destruction.

One way brings illumination and the other brings illusion; one is transforming and the other is transfixing.

In either case we began in the world. We learn to be of the world or of the kingdom of God.

On the best advise of Jesus Christ, I am going to preach the kingdom of God is at hand.

I am further convinced that the kingdom is a form of government based on freewill aspects mentioned above where people come together for the promotion of those precepts and ordinances of Jesus Christ. The world and the order it imposes seduces, deceives and entices all to do the opposite of Christ’s Kingdom at hand.

The enemy of freedom wishes to divide and conquer the people who seek freedom and liberty under God and have found no greater alley than modern religion.

But Christ did not preach religion. He taught precepts of faith, hope and charity in a national brotherhood where its ministers could not exercise authority one over the other and rights and responsibilities remained with the children of God.

Peace on your house
