Holy Mandate: A Righteous Remnant



The yearly men’s gathering returned in full force as crowds gathered on 29 October, early Saturday morning, to hear from Pastor Yang and Brother Jason Wong as they shared a word in season on the theme, A Righteous Remnant.


The meeting began with a powerful time of worship and thanksgiving as the men sang of the Lordship of Jesus and God’s triumph as the Lion of the tribe of Judah, consecrating themselves once again to the Lord.

Pastor Yang exhorted the men that to be a righteous remnant, they must first be discipled—being conformed to the image of Christ in full maturity. Only after a disciple is formed will God cause that person’s ministry to be multiplied.


Highlighting the importance of preparation, Pastor Yang reminded the men that Jesus spent 30 years in preparation for three and a half years of ministry.


What God is seeking to do is multiply His sons and God is not going to multiply carnal and childish behaviours.


This is especially critical in Singapore’s fast-paced society where success is often viewed as something that can be achieved instantaneously at any expense. On the contrary, success in the Kingdom of God is often achieved through a long, drawn-out process of learning and growing in humility, tenacity, and perseverance.


What God is seeking to do is multiply His sons and God is not going to multiply carnal and childish behaviours.

Another great piece of encouragement that Pastor Yang shared was that while God only anointed and worked through a few selected people in the Old Testament, He says that He will pour out His Spirit on all flesh in the New Testament. The playing field is leveled, and everyone can be used by God and be a part of the righteous remnant if they are willing.



Continuing that thought, Brother Jason echoed the need for men to rise up as a righteous remnant: to be leaders in their spheres of influence as fathers, brothers, husbands, and in whatever role they are required to take on.


Brother Jason stirred up the men to respond to God and embrace the call that had been given to each one. He encouraged everyone to have the desperation to go all the way with the Lord, no matter the cost. “If God were to ask us today ‘Where are you?’, our answer should be, ‘Here am I’. And the next question that God would ask is ‘How far are you willing to go?’”


The men were given the opportunity to respond to the message during the altar call, and Pastor Yang prayed for Cornerstone to be filled with strong men that would be willing to confront their weaknesses, take up their cross and go all the way with God as a righteous remnant.


If God were to ask us today ‘Where are you?’, our answer should be, ‘Here am I’. And the next question that God would ask is ‘How far are you willing to go?’

Having been spiritually fed, the men were then treated to a sumptuous breakfast of local delights including laksa, sandwiches, puffs and coffee, a staple component of our men’s meetings before the Covid-19 restrictions were introduced.


We trust that our men have been fully charged spiritually and physically to press on with God and step into all that God has ordained for them!
