Who Are The Elect?? (8/9/2017, Message#89)
The "Elect" in The Bible!?!
Is There Really A Way to Know?
To be Perfectly Honest, the "Elect" goes back even further than the Book of Genesis! There is only "One" True Elect of Father God Elohim (I Am That I Am), it is "Through" Him and Him Alone, to Whom All the Other's are Made an "Elect!" The "Elect" of Father God El Shaddai (God Almighty) is Jesus Christ and it is "Through" Him, the other "Elect" of Father God are made Known and Manifested or Chosen!! To be an "Elect," All of them are Selected and Chosen by Jesus, and All of Humanity Can Call Upon the Name of The Lord Jesus! This is Why Humanity Needs Jesus. Under the "Law" or Old Testament, the "Elect" are Chosen. However under The Age of Grace, All of Humanity Can Call Upon the Name of The Lord Jesus!
There are many things within the Body of Christ in which people question and now I am hearing about the “Elect,” referenced within the Bible (Book of Instruction Before Leaving Earth). The thing about the “Elect,” they go “All” way back to the Beginning in the Book of Genesis! For starters, Adam and Eve are the “First" of the Lord God El Shaddai (God Almighty’s) Elect! Without them, there would be “No” Humanity! Noah is one of Father God’s Elect, as is Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph and even Moses for beginners. The “Elect” in the Bible are People Chosen by the Lord God of Heaven Elohim (I Am That I Am) to accomplish His Will, Purpose and the Journey for “All” of Humanity!
Just Being Honest, Most of the “Elect” are from the Children of Israel and are of Hebrew descent. For They Are Father God’s Chosen People, His Original Bride and the People He Himself has set apart to be His Elect!! Even though the Lord God Abba (Father), El Shaddai (God Almighty) has risen up prophets, kings and those He has Chosen. The Children of Israel never truly followed Him and/or stayed true to Father God Elohim (I Am That I Am) faithfully. There are so many examples of when Israel turned their back to Father God, to serve other gods and live as the heathen's or pagan's do. Every time, Father God would have to chastise Israel, pass Judgment, then Israel would remember Father God and turn back to Him.
The Elect, like Elijah, Daniel and so many others were established to bring the awareness of Father God Adonai (Lord) back to His People, the Young Nation of Israel. They were Chosen to fulfil a predetermined role for the Children of Israel and all of this for His Glory, Power and Direction!! This is the Purpose of the “Elect,” and the Lord God of Heaven and Everything, Freely Chooses these individuals!! For He is the Creator of “All” of Humanity and Father God El Shaddai (God Almighty) has the “Right” to Choose whomever to do what He wants, because “All” of Humanity is on a Journey and He is the “Captain!”
The One True and Ultimate "Elect" of Father God is Jesus Christ, He is Chosen Above All Else!! Any of the Other "Elect," must and are Always "S-elected" Through Him! All in All, the Lord Jesus Christ is "The Elect" and in the Bible; the word "Elect" is also Singular, meaning "Only" One Person!!
The Bible Says What...?
The Bible Tells "It" Like It Is!!
What Does the Bible Say About the Elect?
First off the Bible uses the term “Elect” in a variety of ways: for Israel, the Lord Jesus Christ Ultimately, a lady, a church, and Angels. Never however, is this word used to indicate in which there's a "Select" Group who alone, are predestined to be "Saved"… Never!!! Didn't Father God say to Israel, “The LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto Himself...” (Dt. 7:6). This “choosing” did not "automatically" assure that All of Israel would live up to the part. Unfortunately, the Children of Israel as a whole did not fulfil this "Calling" but went into sin, and the Lord God of Heaven Elohim (I Am That I Am) had to cast her out of His Promise Land. For a season and passage of time; as with All Things, the Lord God El Shaddai (God Almighty) is Merciful! He Finally Allowed and Re-established Israel as a Nation in 1917; "Officially" in 1947 and 1948 on Paper!!
Now let’s dive even deeper here, The Lord Jesus Christ chose 12 Disciples and Judas was one of the “Elect” or Chosen of Jesus right? So Judas is one who was Chosen to be a Disciple, but through his "Own" Choice… he did not fulfil this "Calling" of the Lord Jesus and is now in Hell. Even to be an “Elect,” the Lord God of Heaven El Shaddai (God Almighty) still gives you “Free” Will or a Choice!! Even if someone is an “Elect” of Father God through the Lord Jesus Christ, they are not predestined to Make Heaven their Eternal Home!! Remember, Your “Free” Will comes into play and knowing Who Do You Serve, and Where Is Your Love until the End!
This "World", Let It Go! Nothing is ever guaranteed on this side of Eternity, Nothing Ever Is!! Humanity has Father God Given “Free” Will and we can Choose to fulfil the role of the “Elect” or not. If you have Intimacy With The Lord Jesus, the "True" and Highest "Elect," most likely you will do what He asks and desires of you! Because you Love Him More, than the "Self" and the World Around You!!
Don't Run From the Plan of Christ in Your Life!!
What Does It Mean to Be an Elect?
To be an “Elect” is to be selected by Father God Elohim (I Am That I Am), to fulfil a role or purpose He has planned for you! Like Moses, Isaiah, King David, Solomon and Samuel for example in the Old Testament, all of them were Chosen to lead people to Father God. Whether for war and battle, to return back to Father God or to spread the news of the Gospel of The Truth! These few examples fulfilled their purpose and Chose to do so freely and willingly, without hesitation for the most part. What happened to those who refused or didn’t fully comply to Being the “Elect?”
Take Jonah for example, he was to tell a group of people about a warning from Father God and he ran from this purpose. The Lord God of Heaven and Earth asked Jonah to go and preach to Nineveh, but he didn’t want to. What did Jonah try to do? He tried to flee and run from this "Calling" and got on a boat to leave his country. As the story goes, he was cast into the sea and swallowed by a large fish or whale. Jonah was there 3 days and 3 nights, while there he cried out to the Lord God; on the third day the whale spit Jonah out. Again the Lord God Elohim (I Am That I Am) beckoned Jonah to preach to Nineveh and he obeyed this time!
This is just one example, what about Balaam? In the Book of Numbers, Balak sought after Balaam to curse the Children of Israel but the Lord God El Shaddai (God Almighty), forbade Balaam to do so. Of course Balaam went anyway and what happened? The Lord caused the donkey to speak to Balaam about the Angel of Father God, Drawn with Sword. This was because Balaam disobeyed the Voice of Father God and “Chose” to go see Balak anyway. As the story goes, Balak's entire goal was to “Curse” Israel through the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Of course the Lord God blessed the Children of Israel twice through the words of Balaam, as the Angel of the Lord God told him. So Balak sent Balaam away from him, because he couldn’t accomplish what Balak wanted.
To be an “Elect,” there are times when disobedience and "little" faith don’t apply! When you are called of Father God it is always best to heed His Advice and His Voice!!
The Elect Are the Children of Israel!?!
The Blood Bought Believers are What...?
Are There “Any” Elect During the Age of Grace?
First off, the Lord Jesus Christ is the "Elect" of Father God El Shaddai (God Almighty)!! Those Who Serve the Lord Jesus Christ, Belong to Him and Accomplishes His Will, They are also an "Elect" through Jesus Christ!! Wow, Really? :D
Of Course Peter, Thomas, the Apostle Paul, James, Andrew and John the writer of the Book of Revelation are the “Elect.” Are there any “Elect” in the Modern times within The Age of Grace? I am sure there are other modern examples, I am only personally certain of these within Father God and YouTube. Also the Blood Bought Believers (BBB’s), who have Chosen to live their lives daily for the Lord Jesus during The Age of Grace and have “Elected” to Walk By Faith, Not By Sight. In seeking The Truth, our foundation is clearly in Jesus Christ and as He continues to reveal The Truth in His Word the Bible. Many of us (BBB’s) continue to do what the Lord Jesus asks of us and we do so without hesitation or even a question to Him.
Trust In The Lord Thy God, For He Is Jesus! We Trust Him, because the Lord Jesus Christ trusts us with what He gives to us to freely share! Whether it's Dreams, Visions, Messages or a "Word" King Jesus wants to convey using His Blood Bought Believers. Just as the Bible says, you will “Know” them by their “Fruit.” If anyone of the “Elect” during The Age of Grace doesn’t line up or coincide with the Bible, or the Teachings of Jesus Christ. They are truly “Not” the “Elect” of the Lord Jesus Christ, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords!! Here's how, if a Servant of the Lord Jesus Christ can't admit or freely say: "Jesus Christ is God in the Flesh and has already dwelt among men as God in the Flesh." These people are of the Spirit of Jesus Christ!! :) However, if they say that God in the Flesh hasn't come yet and is still yet to come... They are not of the Lord Jesus and clearly don't know Him.
To answer this question, the answer is yes. There are the “Elect” during The Age of Grace and they are the Blood Bought Believers (BBB’s) in Jesus Christ! They are not a part of any religion, religious groups or affiliations; we simply follow the Lord Jesus Christ, His Ways and His Teachings!! Are You One Of The Few, this is who the BBB’s are and represent. We “Elect” to follow Jesus Christ and He “Elects” to Bless, Provide and Keep those who are His!!
Even You, can be "One" too!! The Lord Jesus Christ Came so "None" Shall Perish, This includes, especially You!! His Death, Burial and The Resurrection of The Lord Jesus Christ are the Proof!! Won't You Come?! Do It Right Now!!
Let The Truth Be Known!!
What is the Difference Between the Few and the Elect?
Now for the most part, the “Elect” in the Bible mostly applies to the Children of Israel and the Prophets, Teachers, Kings and Select Leaders under the "Law" of the “Old Testament.” Not to say there weren’t any of the “Elect” in the New Testament under The Age of Grace. The Greatest and Ultimate example of the “Elect” during The Age of Grace, is the Lord Jesus Christ, Humanity’s Lord and Savior!! Are You One Of The Few applies to the amount of Intimacy With The Lord Jesus, the BBB’s (Blood Bought Believers) have with King Jesus.
So the “Elect” are chosen by Father God Elohim (I Am That I Am) to reach a certain group or give a certain message, usually a reminder of the Gospel of The Truth. This still doesn’t mean these individuals are predestined to make Heaven their Eternal Home. The Few through their closeness or Intimacy With The Lord Jesus, will more than likely make Heaven their Eternal Home!! How is this so you say?
The Few come to the knowledge of Why Humanity Needs Jesus for themselves and it is through Grace many accept the “Free” Gift of Salvation. Once you become Saved, you become part of The Few right then! To become part of the “Elect” in The Age of Grace, you must “Ask, Seek and Knock.” Putting this plainly, Draw Near to the Lord Jesus and make Him the “Center of Your” Life! In either case, this is all by Choice, You Must Choose!! You Decide When and Who You Serve, and how Close of a Relationship you Desire with the Lord Jesus!!
Not everyone is willing to give up everything and faithfully follow the Lord Jesus, which is why some are closer to Him than others. In the end All of Humanity Can Call Upon the Name of The Lord Jesus! This doesn't exclude anyone, this means even you can Come to Jesus Christ!!
The Question is, What Is Your Decision?
Look to the Bible, the Entire Book!!
Elect to Let Your Light Shine!!
Are You Part of the Elect?
To make this as simple as possible, to be part of the “Elect” of Father God Elohim (I Am That I Am) of Heaven and Earth. The Lord Jesus Christ must be “First”, “Foremost,” and at the Very “Center” of your Life and Existence!! To where you can’t eat, sleep, drink or do anything without Jesus on your Mind and within Your Heart, in Everything You Do!! This is what it means to Draw Near to the Lord Jesus and having Intimacy With The Lord Jesus. You have Chosen to belong to Jesus in a way, to where no “Secrets” are kept from Him. You also consciously make every attempt to let the Lord Jesus know what is on your mind, what you are dealing with and just to talk to Him as you would a close friend!!
In a sense, you have “Elected” to make the Lord Jesus Christ your “Everything!” Your Focus Determines Your Eternity and you always remember that “All” of Humanity needs The Presence of The Lord Jesus!! This is what Father God El Shaddai (God Almighty) created His Prized Creation (Humanity) for, in the First Place and this is exactly what the Holy Spirit is, the very “Soul” of Father God!! This is why Humanity is the Lord God of Heaven Jehovah, Elohim (I Am That I Am), Adonai (Lord); Abba (Father), El Shaddai (God Almighty’s) Prized Creation!! We are made in His Image, being three parts, given a “Home” Planet which supports us and provides for Humanity, Through God the Son, God in the Flesh the Lord Jesus Christ. Humanity can be redeemed back unto Father God through Him and "Only" the Lord Jesus!!
To be the “Elect” during The Age of Grace, “We” must “Choose” to Draw Near to the Lord Jesus and maintain Intimacy With The Lord Jesus. Is This Really Too Much To Ask? The Few are the Bride of Christ, which is also "the Restrainer" that is keeping The Days of Darkness of The Tribulation Period, The “Final” Curtain Call from happening Right Now!!! Those Left Behind are going to need the Holy Spirit, How could Any One, made of Flesh, withstand the Onslaught and Full Force of darkness being released without the "Helper?"
Are You Ready and Which Path, Will You Choose?
The Restrainer is Who...?!?
It's About Knowing Jesus His Word and "Who" He Is!!
What Blessings and Promises, Apply to the Elect?
The Closer and More Intimate you become With the Lord Jesus, the more He Trusts you and reveals unto you about Him, and His Kingdom!! There is no “Friend” in “All” of Creation who is likened unto Jesus. Not even a Close Friend or your Closest Friend can compare, nor a Spouse or Significant Other either!! Not your Family, Parents or Relatives either, there is Literally "No One" who's Like the Lord Jesus Christ and I Mean No One!!! Not even your Closest Pets or Any Four-legged Friends could ever compare either!
During The Age of Grace, you “Elect” to Draw Near to the Lord Jesus. In so doing, He then in turn “Elects” to show, and reveal more of the Promises and Blessings He has in store for you, and the Entire Body of Christ!! This is why there are so many Messengers, Servants, Prophets, Receivers of Dreams and Visions, and Handmaidens for the Lord Jesus Right Now! We Trust Him and He Trust Us, His “Elect” who have Chosen to “Follow” the Lord Jesus Christ with “Everything" we "Are"!!
By no means does this exclude the Children of Israel, they are and always will be Father God Elohim (I Am That I Am), El Shaddai (God Almighty’s) Chosen People and His Original Bride!! This will Never Ever Change, this is a Promise bestowed upon the Seed of Abraham, Isaac; Jacob and the Children of Israel Forever!! When The Age of Grace finally draws to a close, The Modern-day Children of Israel will soon and very soon come to “Know” who their True Messiah is and always has been… Yahushua HaMashiach, Jesus Christ the Messiah, the Savior for “All” of Humanity!!! For the Hebrew People as a Whole, this timeframe is the “Most” important for them, and the Entire History of Israel and her people, this timeframe is The Tribulation Period! Matthew Chapter 24 Applies to Them, the Children of Jacob, the Nation of Israel and "Not"... the Church of Jesus Christ!!
Here and Understand the Truth!!
Anytime is a Good Time to Draw Near to Jesus Christ!!!
To Become Part of His Kingdom, You Must Draw Very Near to the Lord Jesus?
To be perfectly honest, you need to know the Lord Jesus Christ more than you realize! Yes people are dying each and every day, many having Never, Ever Called upon the Name of Jesus Christ!! Will you be another "One" who will not? This is why Pulling People Out of the Fire and Reaching the “Lost” At Any Cost is so important Right Now!!! There are literally Millions of People going to “Hell” in droves, massive numbers and in a rate I have never seen before, Truly Your Focus Determines Your Eternity!! This is why there are so many Messengers, Servants and people Hearing from the Lord Jesus so much Right Now!! He came so “No One” Should Perish, but Have “Life” more Abundantly!!! All of Humanity Can Call Upon the Name of The Lord Jesus.
All you have to do is as simple as A-B-C. A: Acknowledge you are a Sinner, born into sin because of the fall of Adam. B: Believe in your Heart that the Lord God of Heaven Raised Jesus from the dead. C: Confess with your mouth "Jesus is Lord" and you will be Saved! Thank You Lord Jesus for Precious Blood Atonement for the Forgiveness of My Sins! It is All about the Blood of Jesus Christ!
If You want to grow closer to the Lord Jesus or you have like I did, backslid and want to Come Back to Your First Love. The time is now to invite the Holy Spirit back into your life and be Made "Whole"!! Father, I know my sins have separated me from you. The Lord Jesus went through literal Hell for me and I am truly sorry; now I want to turn away from my past sinful life towards you. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your Son, Jesus Christ died for my sins and Loves Me so Much, was Resurrected from the dead, is alive and hears my prayers. I invite the Lord Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. I Never Knew I needed You so Much, and I meant so much to You Lord Jesus and to know the Power of Your Precious Blood, which was shed for the Forgiveness of my Sins! Lord God I ask you to Please send, and fill me with your Holy Spirit; to help me obey You Lord Jesus and to do Your Will Lord, for the rest of my life. Become My “Center” and make me Whole again, in Jesus Holy Name I pray, Amen.
Welcome to the Family of Blood Bought Believers (BBB’s) in Jesus Christ, Our Lord! Thank You Lord Jesus For Your Blood Atonement!!
Sometimes "You" Just "Know!"
Many Within “Grace” Don’t Just Believe, They know What the Lord Jesus Says and Promises!!
As it has been stated earlier, the closer you Draw Near to the Lord Jesus, the more He reveals unto you! No matter where you are in your “Walk” with King Jesus, this all starts with a Belief and Trust in Jesus Christ. As you establish more Intimacy With The Lord Jesus, you begin to surpass just a “Belief” and begin to achieve a “Knowing” of the Lord Jesus, His Promises and Blessings! Doubt, Worry, Fear or any other emotion of darkness fades away and you begin to stand firm in “Who” the Lord Jesus Christ Really is for yourself. This is Why Faith Is So Important, exactly Why Humanity Needs Jesus and why All of Humanity Can Call Upon the Name of The Lord Jesus. Not to forget You Decide When and Who You Serve, Choose Wisely!
This may sound cheesy, you can’t “Spell” Knowledge without “Know.” How does someone come to a “Knowing” of Jesus Christ? First off Pray Daily, Seek Forgiveness of Sins daily, Read His Word the Bible, and also Learn to Experience The Presence of The Lord Jesus. Being and experiencing the very Presence of the Lord Jesus Christ, through His Spirit, the Holy Spirit is one of the greatest ways to have Intimacy With The Lord Jesus! As you or anyone begins to experience the Presence of the Holy Spirit, the more you want to experience and continue to Draw Near to the Lord Jesus!!
This is not the one and only way to come to “Know” the Lord Jesus Christ, but it sure is a unique way to Draw Near to the Lord Jesus. When it comes to putting “All” of your Faith, Trust and Love with King Jesus, there is never ever any “Wrong” way. I am just making a suggestion, Ask, Seek and Knock for the Lord Jesus Christ yourself, and He will let you know what He wants from you!! The whole goal is to get His attention and Walk By Faith, Not By Sight.
Only By the Grace of Jesus Christ and Keep It Simple!!!
Nothing is Hidden, Deep Down You Already Know!
Do You “Know” or Do You Just “Believe?” Where Do You Stand?
Your Focus Determines Your Eternity and your very “Own” relationship or lack thereof with the Lord Jesus Christ!! Whether you just Believe, Know or even if you “Don’t” Know the Lord Jesus Christ, it is still “All” about Him and “Your” Relationship with Jesus!! Even if you “Don’t” know Jesus Christ for yourself and prefer to live this Life on the “I” Way. Deep down, you know the Lord Jesus Christ is “The Way, The Truth and The Life!" That He is also “God” in the Flesh and “None” can come unto the Father in Heaven, except through the Lord Jesus! Even if you have to ask yourself: Do I Have A Reprobate Mind and Are You Living In A Box? The “Still, Small Voice” has been speaking and still confirming The Truth within you, and all around you. Yet you still “Refuse” to acknowledge The Truth because of “Self” and “All” that it desires, and remain living on the “I” Way!?!?
The “I” Way, Do I Have A Reprobate Mind and Are You Living In A Box are all living within the “Self” or the Flesh!! This is where these individuals stand with the Lord Jesus, they are the “Cold” the Bible talks about and mentions. Those who “Believe” the Lord Jesus Christ, His Blessings and Promises were once like the “Cold” and lived on the “I” Way and within the “Self.” These individuals have finally come to the Knowledge and Awareness of the Lord Jesus Christ; accepted Him as their Personal Lord and Savior. They could make Heaven their Eternal Home, as long as they hold onto their “Faith” in King Jesus! Those who “Know” the Lord Jesus Christ, they have an Intimacy With The Lord Jesus and also Draw Near to the Lord Jesus. They “Know” the Lord Jesus Christ and Experience The Presence of The Lord Jesus as well. These are the Blood Bought Believers (BBB’s) in Jesus Christ, who have an Unshakable Faith in the Lord Jesus and in “Who” He is!!! This is Why Faith Is So Important and exactly Why Humanity Needs Jesus!
The real question is, Where Do You Stand with the Lord Jesus Christ? Only “You” can answer this question for yourself, Who Do You Serve and Where Is Your Love? If you are not serving King Jesus or actively seeking His Will, then you are serving the other. There is “No” in between, Choose Wisely... Eternity is a Very Long Time!!
You Must Choose!! Please Choose Wisely and Very Carefully.
