God's Chosen Remnant

Zephaniah 3:13, New King James Version (NKJV)
The Holy Bible, New King James Version Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
13 The remnant of Israel shall do no unrighteousness and speak no lies,
Nor shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth; for they shall feed their flocks and lie down, and no one shall make them afraid.”
{The following are verses which speak to the remnant of God’s people Israel who will come back to Him through the Son. Remember His people were the first believers after Christ Jesus rose again. They will be again.
Many are coming to know Him now yet there will be a time when their will be a multitude of believers (Revelation 7:4) from all the tribes of the children of Israel.}

Isaiah 1:9, (NKJV)

Unless the Lord of hosts had left to us a very small remnant, we would have become like Sodom, we would have been made like Gomorrah.


Isaiah 11:11New King James Version (NKJV)

11 It shall come to pass in that day
That the Lord shall set His hand again the second time
To recover the remnant of His people who are left, from
Assyria and Egypt, from Pathros and Cush, from Elam and Shinar, from Hamath and the islands of the sea.

Isaiah 11:16, (NKJV)

16 There will be a highway for the remnant of His people who will be left from Assyria, as it was for Israel in the day that he came up from the land of Egypt.

Isaiah 46:3, (NKJV)

“Listen to Me, O house of Jacob, and all the remnant of the house of Israel, who have been upheld by Me from birth, who have been carried from the womb:

Isaiah 10:20-22, (NKJV)

20 And it shall come to pass in that day that the remnant of Israel, and such as have escaped of the house of Jacob, will never again depend on him who defeated them, but will depend on the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, in truth. 21 The remnant will return, the remnant of Jacob, to the Mighty God. 22 For though your people, O Israel, be as the sand of the sea, a remnant of them will return; the destruction decreed shall overflow with righteousness.

Isaiah 37:31-32, (NKJV)

31 And the remnant who have escaped of the house of Judah shall again take root downward, and bear fruit upward. 32 For out of Jerusalem shall go a remnant, and those who escape from Mount Zion. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.

Romans 9:27-28, (NKJV)

27 Isaiah also cries out concerning Israel: “Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea,
The remnant will be saved. 28 For He will finish the work and cut it short in righteousness, because the Lord will make a short work upon the earth.”

Romans 11:25, (NKJV)

25 For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in.

Isaiah 17:7-8, (NKJV)

In that day a man will look to his Maker, and his eyes will have respect for the Holy One of Israel. He will not look to the altars, the work of his hands; he will not respect what his fingers have made, nor the wooden images nor the incense altars.


Isaiah 28:22, (NKJV)

22 Now therefore, do not be mockers, lest your bonds be made strong;
for I have heard from the Lord God of hosts, a destruction determined even upon the whole earth.

Isaiah 50:10, (NKJV)

10 “Who among you fears the Lord? Who obeys the voice of His servant? Who walks in darkness and has no light? Let him trust in the name of the Lord and rely upon his God.

Zechariah 8:6-8, (NKJV)

“Thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘If it is marvelous in the eyes of the remnant of this people in these days, will it also be marvelous in My eyes?’ Says the Lord of hosts. “Thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘Behold, I will save My people from the land of the east and from the land of the west; I will bring them back, and they shall dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. They shall be My people and I will be their God, in truth and righteousness.’

Micah 4:7, (NKJV)

I will make the lame a remnant, and the outcast a strong nation;
So the Lord will reign over them in
Mount Zion from now on, even forever.

Jeremiah 31:33, (NKJV)

33 But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.

My Comments: Though we are Called Out to be the chosen of the Lord Jesus who He offers blameless before the Lord God Almighty there have and always will be those who were chosen by God the Father from Abraham's seed from the nation of Jerusalem. They will one day return to Him as they have returned and are returning to Israel. All nations who are against them are against God Almighty and that is a terrible thing.

Those nations who come against Her will have to answer to our Might God. When God talks about what He will do to those who come against Israel, He is not speaking cruelly. He is warning those nations to leave Israel alone. He has allowed those nations to try and test the Israelis many times in history as the nation of Israel walked away from their first love, God.

That does not mean they will not have to pay consequences for coming against His nation and peoples. They will and many have through the ages as will those who come against Her now and in the future. Those who protect Her will prosper and those who do not will be punished.

I shudder when I hear Christians (at least that is what they call themselves, I wonder) say bad things against the Nation of Israel and listen to the lies of the deceiver and newspersons and spread those lies. They heap coals upon their heads unless they repent and do what the Lord God, the One True and Living God, the one they claim to serve, tells them to do. He tells us all to support His Nation. He tells what He will do to those who do not. Do you stand with God Almighty or with the ruler of this world?

Like with salvation this is a choice. We can choose to follow a Righteous and Holy God or we can choose our own way, the worlds way our false god’s, the father of lies. For me I choose to follow Abba Father though I am imperfect in all ways, I will follow Him and ask Him to help me follow better and represent Him in a way that glorifies and brings Him praise.

This study is really too large to do in one so I will do more on it in the future though even that will not be comprehensive so I encourage you to study the Old Testament and any cross references you find in the New Testament of which you will find many.

Yes, we also are God’s chosen because Christ Jesus chose to come to Earth, die in our place on the Cross for our sin and most importantly as He said He would do, rise again on the third day. Of which many saw, talked, touched and ate with Him and attested to doing so. What God says He will do, He will do because He is Righteousness complete.

Abba Father, turn our Nations back to following You, hearing and obeying Your Word and supporting Your chosen people Israel. We pray for our leaders who make the decisions for our nations that they will open their hearts, minds and souls to You; that they will do what You want them to do; that they will become Your servants and do Your will in regards to Your people and salvation. Thank You Father for loving us so much You gave us Your Word to prepare us and guide us as all good Fathers do. We have all sinned against You Almighty God and we know we deserve death and we thank You that You sent Your Son Jesus to Redeem us and prepare a place in Heaven for us. We thank You for sending us Your Holy Spirit to guide and comfort us especially when we go astray. We pray You send the Holy Wind to teach the nations and their peoples Your ways. Fill our hearts and souls with a all consuming love for all that is Yours.

In Jesus name in union with the Holy Spirit I pray. Amen
