The Righteous Remnant

The righteousness of the blameless will direct his way aright.

Proverbs 11:5, nkjv

Just as certain physical characteristics are passed from one generation to another, so truth that leads to faith in God is passed from one generation to another. This is subtly revealed by the fact that Adam’s life is not recorded in the genealogy of his firstborn, Cain, but in the genealogy of his third son, Seth. (Gen. 5:5–31) It was Seth’s descendants who relayed faith in God while Cain’s descendants rebelled against Him and therefore wasted their lives.

Age is not mentioned in the list of Cain’s descendants while in Adam’s genealogy the years of each man’s life are carefully recorded. God lovingly counts the years of those in the righteous remnant, because they glorify Him.

Are you a spiritual descendent of Adam as well as a physical descendant? If the Lamb’s book of life were opened today, would your name be found there? If you have been validated as an authentic child of God, your life has eternal meaning and priceless value in His sight.

THE KEY TO A LIFE OF IMPACT

What are the secrets to a life of impact? Daniel achieved greatness in the eyes of his contemporaries, in the eyes of history, and most importantly, in the eyes of God. His faith did not waver as he faced his critics, as he served new kings in power, or even as he confronted hungry lions. How can we achieve that kind of faith today? Twenty intentional, key choices made all the difference. Daniel’s choices can be ours, such as:

•  The choice to listen
•  The choice to forgive
•  The choice to pray

Cultivate a life-changing faith when you learn to implement The Daniel Key into your everyday life. Request your copy!
