THE REMNANT PRINCIPLE
by Chip Brogden

"And he that overcometh, and keepeth My works unto the end, to him
will I give power over the nations" (Revelation 2:26).

The Remnant is not a closed group. I heard someone say this many
years ago: anyone can, everyone won't, but somebody will. That is the
gist of it, you see. There is a whole doctrine called Remnant
Theology, but that is not what we have in mind here at all. Let us be
clear: a Remnant is not an exclusive, elitist circle of
super-spiritual saints. Not at all. The promises are made to the
"whosoevers".

Anyone can be a friend of God! Anyone can overcome! But we know that
everyone will not. Why won't they? I wish I knew why, I wish I could
explain it, but I cannot explain it, and I just know it is a fact
that everyone will not go on with God. We know it from history, we
know it from looking around us right now. Everyone is not going to
press into God, everyone is not going to seek His Kingdom, everyone
is not going to lay down their life and follow Jesus. Not that they
CANNOT, but they WILL NOT. There is nothing set in stone that says
you are destined to be an overcomer, but these other people are not.
No, everyone is destined for it, but how many will actually go after
it? Anyone can, everyone won't (in fact, a large majority will not),
but SOMEBODY will. That group of "somebodys" who will is the Remnant.
