In this Bible study Mr. Smith looks at the term remnant that appear several times in the Bible where when God brings on punishment he saves some out of it such as Noah's family in the flood. After covering several remnants shown in Bible history, he reminds us that there are two important ones to come at the time of the end; the saving of the church at Christ's return and then the gathering of physical Israel as the kingdom of God begins its rule on the earth.
