As I sit here and type these words I am in such awe of our God in Christ Jesus. He is such an awesome and loving God and yet too holy to put up with sin. Perfect He is in all His ways and thoughts. The Lord is reminding my heart, mind, and soul to be still in Him and ponder of His great mercy and love without taking for granted His grace of salvation. We must remember to live for the One who died for us and is now raised from the dead ascended to heaven at the right hand of the Father. He purges those who belong to Him and cut off those who do not, those who are preordained and chosen children of God.
Many say that there are no chosen children of God, the elect but the Bible says so and those who believe in His Word understand spiritually the Truth which means simply that Jesus did say to the twelve, did I not choose you and yet one of you is a devil? Also preordained elect chosen children of God is this: God already knew in advance before He created each person who would believe and receive Him and who would not. Each person has a purpose, the righteous for Him and the ungodly which are reserved to suffer which all will know of the Godhead one day for He will be exalted among the whole earth and yes exalted even among the heathen. It is not about us, but only about God and He will be glorified.
The bottom line is this, either you believe the entire Holy Bible or you don’t believe God’s Word at all. We cannot pick and choose what sounds good. It is His Word and all about His Glory. John 6:44&70 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. Jesus answered them, Have I not chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil? John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. Psalm 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. Everyone has a purpose like it or not even the heathen are made for glory but to their shame as they see and know He is God in Proverbs 16:4 The Lord hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.
The wicked will see Jesus and mourn in Revelation 1:7-8 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him, Even so, Amen. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. KJV
