PREDESTINED to Believe in JESUS

YOU were Called, Elected and PREDESTINED For SALVATION

I knew you even before you were conceived. Jeremiah 1:4-5 I chose you when I planned creation. Ephesians 1:11-12 You were not a mistake, for all your days are written in my book. Psalm 139:15-16 I determined the exact time of your birth and where you would live. Acts 17:26 You are fearfully and wonderfully made. Psalm 139:14 I knit you together in your mother’s womb. Psalm 139:13 And brought you forth on the day you were born. Psalm 71:6

If it is true, and it is TRUE… that God predestined in eternity past the elect who would be saved, then why do we need to witness to anyone?

Because Jesus commanded us to do it. It is something we do not always understand but he is our sovereign Lord and Savior of our lives and if he asks us to do something through obedience and love we do it.

There is a mandate to share Christ and engage in evangelism, a duty for the Christian. But at the same time it is an unspeakable privilege.

God does not need your testimony to save anybody. God has the power to address every person in this world immediately and directly to tell them what they need to know.

He does not need us to fulfill His purposes but the incredible thing is that the great God of heaven and earth has chosen the means by which He will bring His people to salvation. As well as the people He will bring. He has chosen what the bible calls the foolishness of preaching, the sharing of the word as the instrument the Holy Spirit uses to bring people to saving faith.

The same thing has to do with why we pray. Because God has sovereignty and HE has chosen to work through our prayers to do HIS work.

Again, we have the privilege of being the participants in Gods work of salvation. He does not need us but has chosen to work through us.

Are YOU, Pre-Destined to Know HIM?

Romans 8 vs 29-31

“And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren; and these whom He predestined, He also called; and these whom He called, He also justified; and these whom He justified, He also glorified.”

I believe in Pre-Destination. The following is true and was fore-ordained by Almighty God, because of HIS Plan for my life. Before the foundations of the world were ever made, in eternity past…. the Lord knew me! I truly believe we can never understand the depth of that statement. How awesome and comforting to know that He who began a good work in you will complete it in His time.

Spend some quiet time with The Lord and study how many times throughout history the blood line of the Messiah came down to one small life that God miraculously protected from being snuffed out, so His Son Jesus would be born in Bethlehem.

I propose to you that God does the same for each of His Chosen and Elect children. My mother, a Holocaust Survivor told me the story of arriving at Auschwitz with her sister and her children, nine-year-old Teddy with chocolate eyes and 11-year-old Lillian with blue eyes and hair the color of wheat in the sunshine.

The four of them were in one line and a Nazi soldier pulled my mother out of the line and put her in a separate line by herself. My mother left the line 3 times to go back to be with her sister and 2 kids.

Each time she was beaten and thrown into the other line. The last time she was beaten with clubs and physically could not get back. She could not take her eyes of her sister and 2 children as they walked clinging together, into the darkness of a distant past that would haunt her until the day she died.

She didn’t know that the line her sister and children were in meant death in the gas chamber and that the other line meant life…….but God did.

You see my mother, years later was going to have me. So, God used the 3 beatings by a Nazi soldier to stop my mother from going into the line destined for the Gas Chamber. Why did this happen?

BECAUSE GOD knew me in eternity past and graciously provided me with the gift of faith in His Son so I might have Salvation and fulfill HIS plan for my life on earth; which is to serve the Lord of Lords, the King of Kings; Jesus the Son of God and someday go home to be with The Lord.

Some of you were Born Again quietly or the Lord brought you, like He did me kicking and screaming into His family. In either case, it’s a miracle of new life. I can now look back on my life and see when I thought I was alone, I wasn’t.  And I now look forward to a reunion with my brother and sister, Teddy and Lillian in Heaven.

Watch the Eastern Sky and listen for Sound of the Trumpet with the ears of your Born-Again Heart. It won’t be long now…. Jesus is coming back for HIS OWN.
