I see the light of the remnant shining like the sun.

I see those who are awake to the truth are split on pre-tribulation versus mid-tribulation versus post-tribulation. I see people are divided on whether America got a reprieve or not. I am seeing more and more people divide themselves on whether The Mandela Effect (Satan and his people went back in time to alter The Holy Bible) is real and being used on the Bible or not. (I believe this is hogwash) I am seeing more and more people split over the issue of tithing versus not tithing. (The new thing going around was tithing was old testament, and was only meant to be crops)

I am seeing people lacking proper judgement over once saved always saved, because no matter what one does from then on, they are going to Heaven, versus you have to live holy after you repent (to turn away from), and work out your own soul salvation.

I see Zionist versus Non-Zionist. I see pre-millennial reign versus post-millennial reign, vs no millennium reign. One big war now I see is Calvinism versus Armenism. I also see those in America, who want to see no more chances given to America, let the nuclear missiles fly, and America destroyed (so they can say I told you so, desiring people should perish) versus give us one more chance, I don’t want to see anyone perish.

I see a church divided on immigration, securing our border with a wall versus no security and no wall. I see the church divided on whether President Donald Trump can be saved versus he is a deep state puppet irredeemable of being saved. I see a church divided on the reason President Trump was elected, was it for our good or for our bad? I see white versus black versus Latino vs Asian vs Native American.

I see a church divided on revival now versus revival later versus no revival at all. I see a church who cannot discern righteousness versus unrighteousness. I see a church who cannot discern what causes they should be fighting for. I see a church where two out of every three people watch pornography, and three out of every twenty-five people read their Bible multiple times a week. I see a church where a used car salesman has higher job approval rating than leaders in the church. I see a church where some do not understand what a rainbow really means, nor which bathroom to use, nor what gender outfit to put on.

I see a church where a majority is not truly seeking God for themselves, because they are afraid they might receive an answer they do not want to hear, thus they always depend on people who give them the narrative they are a seeking. People may tell me there is no civil war, and ready to point their finger at some one like me for bringing this issue up, but one can not tell me there isn’t one, because I see a church fulfilling the very words Jesus spoke, “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall mot stand.”

However, I see hope in the church. I see a light coming to correct, rebuke, teach, heal, and set free those who have been indoctrinated with false teachings and beliefs. And they will come and encourage people to seek God for themselves because they will see signs and wonders from those sent to them.

I see a group of people seeking God for themselves, no matter what answer they receive. I see a remnant of people who refuse to argue and fight over pointless divisive subjects, which is the equivalent of giving someone gall and vinegar, just like they gave David in Psalms 69:21 and Jesus in Matt 27:34, which gall and vinegar together is bitter, sour, and unpleasant, thus the remnant will not leave a bitter, sour, unpleasant taste in the mouth and minds of those seeking deliverance. I see those sounding the alarm to bring as many into the kingdom as they can. I see a remnant not caring about color or nationality, but about souls. I see darkness abounding over the entire Earth, but I see the light of the remnant shining like the sun. I see the SON rising in the hearts of men, looking to be saved in the ark of safety.

I see James Bailey and others like him who step out on faith everyday to give the warnings and testimonies God has given him, and others like him to give to the people, so they to can achieve to receive the ultimate reward. They do this depending on the Lord completely, using almost every penny they receive to continue the work God has sent them to do. I see them not knowing how their needs are going to be met, wanting to give up multiple times, they refuse to give up the race, because they know they have a responsibility, and they know their needs are going to be met, by the grace of God, even though 1% or less actually financially support their work. I see them not being able to take as many vacations, or do many of the things they want to do, because they sacrifice almost all of their time and resources to the assignments God has given them. I see them receiving the fruits of their labor.

I see this remnant rising out of the ashes, all this intentional fire and friendly fire the civil war has caused. I see them reaching out to the lost, hurting, widow, orphan, downtrodden, outcasts, hungry for God. I see the brightness of a new dawn, and a barrier to go beyond. I see the Bible coming to life everyday, fulfilling every prophecy yet to be fulfilled. I pray many see what I see.

AMEN, AMEN, AMEN!!! WOW, I have been witnessing this. Amazing the Holy Spirit has been showing me these same division, probably because I have not ever been indoctrinated. I have seen the anger, the argument of the Church members over leaving the counterfeit church to run to a Torah Observant keeping only method; and people telling Gentiles they must use Yeshua/Yahushua and why are we using Jesus??? I have been seeing so much of the division on 99% of what you posted. Wow, thank you Holy Spirit for posting this article. It has been several months of feeling sad for all this division caused by the enemy. I keep going to prayer and asking the Lord to reveal what is real because so much information is coming at us and people are grabbing onto it w/out digesting the Bible and asking the Holy Spirit to reveal the truth. Only the true remnant and our Savior Jesus Christ is going to get us through the deceptions and division that the enemy has set us as a trap at this hour. He knows his time is short. Praise You Jesus. Blessings and peace to you Brother Matt. Thank you so much for posting this so timely article at least for me. Sheri 🙂

Thank you, Matt! Finally, some one has the courage and conviction to speak truth so that we(you and the rest of us, His body) can deal with it. I’m reminded of ”For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved? But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.”Jn3:19-21

There have been so much false teachings and sayings and traditions which have been pushed on christians that it is a true saying, ‘ My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I will reject you…(Woe, Here! God Himself saying we will be rejected because we have done what?)… from being a priest unto me…’ (from Hos.4:6). Like you said in here, we need to pick up the Bible and read it, search it out, study it to shew thyself approved unto God rightly dividing the word of truth. We do not want to be those whom are ashamed at His appearing since we do have this opportunity (thanks, James 🙂) to hear from and learn from, well, just right here alone I am learning and growing from not just the prophecies, teachings and words of re proof and encouragement but from you, the readers, commenters and voices on here. Thank you , Matt

That baffles me as well. I call this the “Family Feud Logic.” If you have ever watched this game show, and stopped and thought for moment, about the 2 families competing to get the right to play “Fast Money”, one could come to simple conclusion. The last round before Fast Money the Johnson family could be routing the Smith family by something like 293 to 53, seven points away from getting to the 300 points necessary to win and play fast money, the shows host will then say if the Johnson family wins they play fast money, if the Smith family wins they either win, or tie and go into sudden death. Wait a minute, if I am the Johnson family all the other rounds we have just played have been a complete waste. Because no matter what happened, technically this is the only round that counts.

This is the same way with the OSAS crowd, why bother to waste my time and live holy, if no matter what I do in the end, I get the same shot as someone who has lived holy all their lives after being saved. Salvation doesn’t work like this.

Good analogy! For years I struggled with the concept of a person on their deathbed accepting Christ at the last minute and getting into heaven…until I had the parable of the vineyard owner hiring people throughout the day and he paid them all the same wage. The difference is the OSAS crowd is ignoring that Jesus forgives…then says sin no more! Take care!

Thank you Alison. Many people purposely turn a blind eye to the problems in the church. I believe Jesus called all his followers to be watcher/watchmen, because Jesus said, “WATCH and Pray.” And by definition, anyone who watches is technically a “watcher,” or a “watchman.” Jesus said “You have eyes and do not hear, and ears and do not see.”

Sad but true – but yes there is hope. Just a small point Matt, I have had ” the Mandela effect ” explained to me that people try and make you think something is one thing when you have heard something different in the past, the example being that it was on the news that Nelson Mandela died in prison then a few years later he is released so somewhere in your mind you are confused and think to yourself – well now I can’t believe anything I thought I knew so must believe what I am told . Hope this makes sense. Another famous example is the children’s book called ‘the Bernstein bears ‘ , then a few years later the spelling was changed to Berenstein .

Ok thanks Matt, I understand what you are saying, that once you start down that rabbit hole everything can be questioned and discredited. Sometimes I get so fed up with the ignorance of Christians that I say that’s it I’m going to be a hermit – and could do quite happily! But the Lord always reminds me straight away in a still small voice, don’t forsake assembling together!!

One should do a study on “forsaking the assembly” verse used to lasso one into religion. That verse was written to the Hebrews and actually goes back to Leviticus. The not forsaking the assembly of yourselves is not forsaking assembling together at the feasts.

Also, I found this from searching for that’forsaking the assembly’

“I find it interesting again that God does not call us to have large worship services but to live a life of worship – that worship being trademarked with ACTION. The offering He desires is praise at ALL TIMES (not just a Sunday sing song) and that primarily to be actuated through our doing good and being generous to others who are in need. The time for sitting in pews and thinking this is somehow “fellowship” or that it constitutes “being assembled” is long over. God is merciful in our stages of ignorance and is patient as we grow. He is so good and so faithful to continue to lovingly guide us and pour out His blessings on us, even when while we sometimes ignorantly remained engrossed in traditions that do more to slow that process of growth that aide it”. That is a quote from: https://www.truthforfree.com/forsaking-the-assembly/
He seems to concentrate on Ekklesia , which I realized during this discovery process, that ‘assembly’ is at the root of. Sure, ekk-lesia means ‘called out ones’ but, appears to be synonymous with ‘separated ones’ and assembling together with the ones called out or separated out from the world strikes me as the reason the HS in revelation said to ‘come out of her my people’ and separate from …amongst them, the wicked of the world…
I want to thank you for bringing up that of not forsaking the assembly, because it sure is richer than I thought. I will have to dig in deeper into it tonight and perhaps He will show me (us, His Body) more. Till then, shalom and keep pressing in deeper!

Sheri, after searching through that site, truthforfree, I found a part that was recommending other (articles or books) and some of those were not lined up with the word. Be careful on there, in other words. Take whatever is there and pray, seek what the Spirit will show to you because The Spirit will take of what is Mine(Yahuwshua) and reveal it unto you. That one part, the man talking, wrote a book about it, seems to line up accurately with what the word is revealing unto us, i.e. The Ekklesia is not the ‘church’ or institutionalized buildings and programs, we are. We, the body of Messiah are the Ekklesia, called out ones, ones called to separate ourselves from the others following after the world and its lusts. He flushes out that subject quite well in his book and as I read it over last night it appears to be right on with everything lining up with the word of truth.

Hi Thomas, Thank you. I had reservations from the Holy Spirit when I opened that website truthforfree website. Amen, yes I agree with you Ekklesia, is the called out ones. Many are called but few are chosen. So, glad had discernment about this website. I did not have have to write to you immediately after checking out this website. Thank you for thinking of me. May you have a wonderful and Blessed weekend in the almighty name of Jesus Christ. I have been swamped working on my Spiritual Warfare class and test in between working 9 hour days. Love and blessings, Sister Sheri 🙂

I love it when the HS fills in the voids for (all of) us with His discernment. That is a good sign for us that we are growing up and becoming the mature man not tossed about by every doctrine of man.
I took the day off and read through Tom Gambills book* yesterday, the one that sparked this latest discourse. And I will say, it is spot on! After finishing reading it, I can now see through more of the things which were making me scratch my head, wondering ‘why are christians acting like this?’ over the past 40 years since I was called out into my ‘wilderness experience’.
I highly recommend his book. I found nothing in there which I could question from scripture but as always, discern, ask, seek and be guided by our Fathers gentle loving hand

Yes and amen to using us to save souls, bringing in the last and greatest harvest!
Rather than praying (or wishing for) more hours – consider, prayerfully and with discernment, pray that Father’s Spirit will give you supernatural recall and understanding of all that you have seen and heard. I say that because the experience which I had when I died (NDE brain hemorrhage) was so memorable because I not only learned everything in a split second of our time(up there, there is no ‘time’) but , …while I was there I understood and ‘knew’ it as if I had been researching and practicing it here for most of a lifetime!!! Last night I had a small sampling of that and although it only lasted a few seconds each time but there were 3 times that happened and after each one, it was similar to what I experienced returning back into this body after being ‘up there’. I tried to stay in that mind but it slowly began to fade. What I believe the Spirit of our Father was showing me was a ‘foretaste’, an appetizer, a ‘teaser’ of the end time outpouring of the Spirit, that last GREATEST OUTPOURING THE WORLD HAS EVER SEEN OR WILL SEE, Anyway, it was awesome and I love what our Father is doing for us, His body …
PS. I said supernatural recall/understanding of ‘all’ but probably wiser to say ‘all that the Set-Apart Spirit guides and leads us to’. We don’t want any of that toxic leavened knowledge of good and evil infiltrating into our minds 😶

Christina c, I just did a word search for ‘ assembling’ and ‘together’ and it seems they derive from the same root/same word. And, there are only 3 times in 2 verses that word is used(2Thess2:1;Heb10:25) and the context “appears to be” in line with worship and praise of the assembly/congregation of Messiah. Do you have any references/research that indicates that scripture(s) referenced only the 7 feasts of the Lord? That is a question I’ve had in the past but never was able to pursue but apparently, now is the time for me to pursue the answer (to that question)

hi C, the whole book was written to the Hebrews, not just that verse. And the book of Hebrews was written to show forth the glories of Christianity as compared to the old covenant. If you read and understand the whole book of Hebrews, you will see that “not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together” has nothing to do with the feasts. Cheers

It is always good to read a couple verses before and after to get the context of a verse. We can see the purpose of the assembling together in verse 24, and this can be done with just 2 or 3 people even. Does not need to be a “mega church”.

Heb 10:24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:

Heb 10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some [is]; but exhorting [one another]: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

This is true especially in our days… the day is approaching quickly.
