Reviving the Remnant

All true Christians can easily discern there is something terribly, awfully wrong in this world today.   I understand that many people are hopeful for America’s future under bold, new American leadership.  To the “natural man” things may appear to be looking up.   But, I’m afraid I am not so optimistic.  We are living in a culture so confused and twisted, it’s almost unbelievable.  The America I grew up in is gone now.  I am not sure that we will ever recover.

The Lord called me to this ministry in the year 2000.  Fifteen months later, when Wisconsin Christian News was still in it’s infancy, America was attacked by Islamic terrorists.  September 11, 2001, a day that certainly — one would think — would forever live in infamy.  Yet just sixteen years later, not only have we almost completely forgotten the horrors of that day, it seems we Americans are now willfully and blindly welcoming our enemies with open arms — even as they curse us, promising to destroy us.  We watch with our own eyes as they destroy the rest of the world … and then we demand they be allowed to do the same to us.  What is wrong with us?

We call evil good and good evil.  We put darkness for light and light for darkness.  We call enemies friends and friends enemies.  We worship death and despise life, and we bow down to countless idols, the vain things of our own imaginations, even as we shake our hateful, rage-filled fists at God, our Creator, and all things good, pure and holy.  Yes, I do believe that all true Christians can easily discern there is something terribly, awfully wrong in this world today…. and it’s something much more intense, much more dark, sinister and evil than we have ever experienced before.

Understanding there is a problem, and what that problem is, is the first step to solving it, if such a thing be possible at this late hour.    In Proverbs 15:14, we have this:  “The heart of him who has understanding seeks knowledge, but the mouths of fools feed on folly.”  What Godly wisdom — and what an apt description of where we are — both spiritually and physically — today.    As Christians who study our Bibles, we seek the Lord in prayer, and honor Him in our hearts, we seek knowledge and understanding.  We want to know the TRUTH.  Those of us with enough courage to SPEAK, feel a desperate URGENCY to SPEAK the TRUTH.

Yet so many in our nation — and many sitting beside us in our own churches today — (dare I say many teaching us in our churches today) — hunger and thirst, and feed on folly.  I hate to sound like a broken record, but we keep coming back to Romans 1, where three times we read that God “gave them over” to depraved minds.  Truly, it seems, most of the world is consumed with folly, suffering from seared consciences, depraved minds, unable to even think anymore, unable to comprehend the truth.  They hate wisdom and they abhor understanding.  Much more “important” things consume our minds: entertainment, sports, recreation, social media… most all of which is filled with debauchery, pornography, immorality, perversion, violence, drugs, sorcery, false religions and underlying all of it is Satan’s ultimate goal:  death.  Once again Scripture rings true, as we read in Proverbs 8 regarding Wisdom:  “All who hate me love death!”

I believe we can distill all of Satan’s schemes down to three specific things… things that are now in vogue, popular, accepted and celebrated the world over.  They are:  1) the demonic theocracy of Islam;  2) unbridled sexual perversions, and 3) the abomination of abortion: offering up our precious preborn babies to Molech.  What do all these things have in common?  Death.  Our world is in turmoil because we have chosen death.  We have not only chosen it, we worship and celebrate it.

Woodrow Wilcox


In Moses’ final writings, which we find in the book of Deuteronomy, he said this, speaking to the people the very words given to him by God Himself.  As is God’s way, He once again granted the people the gift of freewill.  He does not force Himself upon mankind.  Rather, He gives us a choice to make, a path to follow, if only we will.

This is found in chapter 30:  “See, I have set before you today life and good, death and evil.  If you obey the commandments of the Lord your God  that I command you today, by loving the Lord your God, by walking in His ways, and by keeping His commandments and His statutes and His rules, then you shall live and multiply, and the Lord your God will bless you…But if your heart turns away, and you will not hear, but are drawn away to worship other gods and serve them, I declare to you today, that you shall surely perish… I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore CHOOSE LIFE, that you and your offspring may live, loving the Lord your God, obeying His voice and holding fast to Him, for He IS your life…”


It appears we have made our choice, and we have CHOSEN to deny our God, who has blessed us so abundantly, yet we still hate Him passionately.    Evidence of this can be found worldwide, as all over the earth, the people have chosen death.  Europe is in flames, it is lost, forever.  It’s been easily and quickly overtaken by the demons of Islam.  A quick study of demographics alone proves this out.  Muslim households have an average of eight children, while Europeans barely have one.  Add to that the hundreds of thousands of so-called “migrants” invading Europe, and you can easily see that in no time at all, the “old countries” of our ancestors will soon be entirely devoured, transformed forever into wholly Islamic states.

The same is true here in America, where we not only purposely limit the number of children we conceive, if we DO find ourselves blessed with new life, we cannot kill it fast enough… we murder our own babies before they are born, (60 MILLION since 1973) so as not to “burden” ourselves.

Meanwhile, even as France, Germany, England, Sweden and other European nations are overtaken by the Islamic hordes, who kill, steal and destroy everything in their path, we here in America can not seem to get a clue.  Instead, we welcome the same death cult to our own shores, even knowing the intentions of these self-proclaimed enemies.  We roll out the red carpets and prepare the prayer rugs for “our Muslim friends.”  How delusional can we get?

America used to be a beacon of hope for all the people of the world.  God set us an ocean apart from the tyranny our ancestors escaped from.  Here, He provided a new “promised land” for His children, devout Christians who honored and revered Him.  And from here went out missionaries to preach the Gospel, and young men and women of valour, sacrificing their very lives for the sake of freedom, rescuing the oppressed from evil men in foreign lands.  Our forefathers did it because they believed it was their righteous duty to save lives, to save souls, to FIGHT for those who could not defend themselves.

I am sad to say I am ashamed at what America has become in such a short time.  We used to send out missionaries and heroes.  Now we export pornography, homosexuality and abortion.   My childhood pastor once made a very wise and profound statement.  He said, “Every time a nation begins to kill their own children, that nation is destroyed from within, within one generation.”  Pay attention now…. In the Bible, a generation is generally considered forty years.  Today it has been 44 years since we “legalized” the killing of our preborn children.  But what was it that took place at the 40 year mark?  Obama’s inauguration for his second term in office…  and if I had to pinpoint when America REALLY began to self destruct, it would be that exact date.

His second term brought racial division and hatred, streets running red with blood.  Police becoming fearful of doing their jobs, to serve and protect the public, lest they be prosecuted by the federal government.   It brought unbridled sexual perversion of every sort imaginable, celebration of homosexuality, the Supreme Court’s “mandate” for same-sex so-called “marriage.”  It brought the normalization of “transgenderism” — at the expense of everyone, and every THING else.  It brought more Islamic infiltration to our government, our schools and our churches.  And it brought the vilification and spiteful ridicule of all things Christian and Holy.  My pastor was right.  One generation, and America is in ruins.

Yes, Satan has used three main things to kill, steal and destroy the people of this earth:  Islam, Sexual Perversion and the Murder of Babies.  What can be done, once a nation has gone under?  Donald Trump wants to make America great again, yet he stops short of acknowledging the REAL answers.  We will not find our salvation in more industry, more jobs, less government regulation, securing our borders… not even in “extreme vetting” of “immigrants.”  These are all seemingly good things, but they’re missing the mark.  Like Nehemiah, we must FIRST rebuild our foundation before we can rebuild any walls.

Our foundation is our reverence for God.  We must return, again, to Him.  We have heard countless people quote 2nd Chronicles 7:14 over the last few years:   “If My people who are called by My name humble themselves, and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”  I have heard it quoted so many times, yet things have only gotten worse in our land.  Which tells me one thing:  God’s people have NOT humbled themselves, they have NOT prayed, sought God’s face or turned from their wicked ways.

The fault lies at the feet of church-goers who do nothing more than rely on their CHURCH to do their spiritual duties for them.  Going to church once a week does not a Christian make!  Our pastors will NEVER speak on the things I have said today.  I am sorry to say, but the vast MAJORITY of career pastors are cowardly, preferring the accolades of their congregants to the commands of God Almighty.  They want to be well liked and popular.  That’s the EXACT OPPOSITE of EVERY MAN OF GOD IN THE BIBLE!  I challenge you to name ONE courageous man of God who was well liked and popular among the people.  It doesn’t work that way.

When you speak the TRUTH, and moreover, when you speak GOD’S TRUTH, Scripture tells us we will be HATED of all men.  For pastors, that means you’ll lose people in the pews.  You’ll lose money.  You may lose your job.  But woe to the one who PRETENDS to teach the Scriptures, but teaches them full of holes…  Who leaves his sheep to fend for themselves, never teaching them to obey all Jesus commanded.  For HE will be the one to plead, Lord, Lord,”… but will ultimately hear those horrific words: “Depart from Me, you worker of iniquity.  I NEVER KNEW YOU!”  I’m sorry, pastors.  You may try to convince yourself you are teaching the whole counsel of God, but unless you are addressing the very topics I just spoke of here today, and teaching your flock what God’s WORD says about these things, you need to examine your heart.

I find it interesting that in Revelation 21:8, COWARDS are listed first.  “But the cowards, unbelievers, vile, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars…will have their part in the lake of fire.”  So… are you courageous?  Or are you a coward?

There is a remnant of true believers, who truly do seek the Lord.  But the gate that leads to life is narrow — not wide, and the road is hard, not easy.  God does NOT accept everyone.  Not everyone is a child of God.  To the remnant few, I say, it is up to us!  We can no longer be content abdicating our spiritual responsibilities to our pastors or our institutional churches.  WE are the Church — WE, as individuals!  It’s time we act like it.  So it is our responsibility to rebuild the foundation, to make the Church great again… like those twelve men who followed Jesus and later changed the entire world!  Twelve men did that, through the power of God and the working of the Holy Spirit in them.  So don’t look to your pastor.  YOU… ME….. WE are the ones who must humble ourselves, pray and seek His face and turn from our wicked ways.  It’s us.  There IS no one else!

Start then, by rebuilding the Foundation of your Family!  Your own home, teach your children of God and His Word.  REVEAL THE TRUTH to them, amidst a world of confusion and folly and error.  If they do not hear it from you, they will not hear it ANYWHERE!

On March 10th and 11th, we are hosting our annual Wisconsin Christian News Ministry Expo and Conference titled “REVIVING THE REMNANT BY REVEALING THE TRUTH.”  Coach Dave Daubenmire will teach us how to assemble ourselves together as God’s TEAM, God’s remnant believers — giving us the COURAGE to truly BE salt and light in this dark, demonic world.  Julaine Appling will be there too, speaking on “The Foundation of the Family,” and Pastor Terry Fischer will explain the Revelation of Jesus Christ.  In addition, Usama Dakdok will speak on Islam, Peter Labarbera will be joining us to reveal the Homosexual Agenda, and Pastor Matt Trewhella will tell us how we can truly END abortion for good.   This is the most powerful lineup of speakers we have ever assembled, and we will be addressing the most vital and important things that we, as God’s remnant Church must deal with in such a time as this….  Please plan now to join us.  If YOU are one of the remnant, we NEED YOU to show up for this!  It will be the most powerful event you’ve been to in a very long time.  And… WHERE ELSE will you get all this information, and also be emboldened and encouraged to stand courageously for truth, and for your Lord?   Call me for me details.  Or click here:

    I think Rob is right. As a whole, America’s conscience has been seared, as with a hot iron. We are reprobate, and only await our part in the antichrist’s world order to bring this Age to a close.

    Thanks, Rob. Not only did you identify the problem, you presented the solution. Until we each turn back to the foundation of our faith, seek redemption in our own lives, we are powerless to affect the outcome of our families, our churches, our communities and our country. We need to humble ourselves, repent of our disobedience and put God above all things. We also need to pray daily, hourly and moment by moment for our leaders. Not only our leaders in political office but more importantly, our church leaders. America is in desperate need of revival and that revival has to start with each one of us first. Great, great article!
