How Few Is Few?

Hi J____,

Thank you for your kind and encouraging words. I too, have friends who are still in the bondage of PCG. It is an impenetrable spirit of bondage, which is penetrated as in your case, only by the spirit of God dragging a few out of the fire:

Jdg 1:23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.

Since you have given me permission to do so I will keep your e- mail address on hand and give it to others in Australia who might ask for fellowship as you have. But I must tell you that in the over 7 years I have had this page, you are the first to ask me to do this. Many have asked if there were people in their area, but no one else has ever given me permission to share their e- mail address with others. I will post this letter, and maybe I will receive some response. It is in the Lord’s hands. [ Anyone in Australia who might want to contact him, let me know!]

I will say this, that the word ‘few,’ as in “many are called but few are chosen,” is far ‘fewer’ than most imagine. I do not mean to come across as negative. I do mean to come across as faithful to God’s Word. Had we been told in relation to our times to “Remember Nineveh,” then I would love to say, along with the “historical orthodox Christian church,” ‘Remember Nineveh.’ But when asked about the condition of this world when this age would end Christ did not say ‘Remember Nineveh.’ What He did say was “Remember Lot,” and “as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be in the days of the coming of the son of man.” The one thing that strikes us about these references is how few ‘few’ was in both cases. To make sure we got the point, Christ concludes with this ominous question: “When the son of man returns will He find faith?”

Being faithful to the words of God is the trial of all trials. It separates you from the entire church world.

I will pray for you and your wife that God will give to you both the strength to endure to the end. Believe me when I say that it will be worth it when you see the glory that is bestowed on “the head of Him who was separated from his brothers.”

Deu 33:16 … Let the blessing come upon the head of Joseph, and upon the top of the head of him that was separated from his brethren.

This is nothing less than a prophecy of what is in store for those who are “in Christ.”
