The Remnant Among the Nations - Part 1
Then the remnant of Jacob shall be
in the midst of many peoples
like dew from the LORD,
like showers on the grass,
which delay not for a man
nor wait for the children of man.
Micah 5:7 (ESV)
God has scattered "the
remnant," and not just "of
Jacob" but all those who
are His as a witness, "in the
midst of many peoples like dew from the LORD."
And "like showers on the grass, which
delay not for a man nor wait for the children of man," His people are thrust out among the
nations of His gracious initiative, independent of man's
desire or lack of it.
So when they (the apostles whom Jesus had
chosen) had come together, they asked him, "Lord, will
you at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?" He said to them,
"It is not for you to know times or seasons that the Father has
fixed by his own authority. But you will receive power when the
Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in
Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the
earth." Acts 1:6-8 (ESV)
Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.
