Plans for God’s chosen, chapter 5

12/18/2,019 God’s 9th Month, Av 20, 5,780    

To: In resident churches, people gifted with desire to be atOne with God.

The big spiritual question is, “who cares?” Seemingly only those gifted with circumcision of heart, ’The Elect.’ People gifted with God’s spirit, “The Holy Spirit of truth.” Jesus tells us how this comes to be? (John 3:7-8; “Do not be amazed that I said to you, ‘You must all be born from above.’ (8) The wind blows wherever it will, and you hear the sound it makes, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”)

It isn’t from works; there is no methodology by which one can choose “in and of themselves.” The call, desire and gift is from God the Father. It’s the mystery hidden throughout the ages. Paul explains.

(Colossians 1:26; “It’s the mystery that has been kept hidden from ages and generations, but has now been revealed to His Saints.”) The mystery is “Christ in a person” “a circumcision of heart” “a changed nature from that inherited from Adam to “a new nature gifted by God.” Allow Jesus’ apostle Paul’s explanations.

(Col 1:24-29; “Now I ‘Paul’ rejoice in my sufferings for you, and I fill up in my physical body – for the sake of His body, the church – what is lacking in the sufferings of Christ. I became a servant of the church according to the stewardship from God – given to me for you – in order to complete the word of God, (26) that is, the mystery that has been kept hidden from ages and generations, but has now been revealed to His Saints. ’not the world.’ God wanted to make known to them the glorious riches of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. (28) We proclaim Him ‘Jesus’ by instructing and teaching all people with all wisdom so that we may present every person mature in Christ. Toward this goal I also labor, struggling according to His power that powerfully works in me.”)

“The Holy Spirit of truth” is God’s gifted power working in individuals, giving understanding and the desire to turn from this world’s system of things, to His glorious and holy way.

(Philippians 2:12-13; “So then, my dear friends, just as you have always obeyed, not only in my presence but even more in my absence, continue working out your salvation with awe and reverence, (13) for the One bringing forth in you both the desire and the effort – for the sake of His good pleasure – is God.”) Seek truth, pray for gifted desire.

Remember Jesus’ personal messages and those through His apostle’s letters are to ’people assembling in His name.’

Paul’s salutation to God’s church at Ephesus gives insight.

(Eph 1:1-2; “From Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, to the Saints [in Ephesus] the faithful in Christ Jesus. Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ!.”) (Note the fact that Paul’s salutation doesn’t include the Holy Spirit. Is something wrong with His understanding? NO. Paul understands that the Holy Spirit is God’s energizing power and through it, God fathers individuals giving the desire to know Him intimately.) Now, each person to whom God’s spirit is given are children of God and as such, ‘members of His family, His church.”) David understood, those He‘s revealed to are sons.

Psalms 82:6-8; I thought, ‘You are gods; all of you are sons of the Most High.’ Yet you will die like mortals; you will fall like all the other rulers.” Rise up, O God, and execute judgment on the earth! For You own all the nations.”)

(John 10:34-38; Jesus answered “Is it not written in your law ‘I said, you are gods’? (Quote from Psalms 82:6.) (35) If those people to whom the word of God came were called ‘gods’ (and the scripture cannot be broken), do you say about the One whom the Father set apart and sent into the world, ‘You are blaspheming,’ because I said, ‘I am the Son of God’? If I do not perform the deeds of My Father, do not believe Me. (38) But if I do them, even if you do not believe Me, believe the deeds, so that you may come to know and understand that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me.”) When we’re gifted with His Holy Spirit of truth; “it’s God putting us in His family.” Now Paul shares that same understanding as revealed from Jesus through David.

(Eph 1:3-14; “Blessed is the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms in Christ. For He chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world that we may be holy and unblemished in His sight in love. “He makes us holy.” (5) He did this by predestining us to adoption as His Sons through Jesus Christ, according to the pleasure of His will – to the praise of the glory of His grace that He has freely bestowed on us in His dearly loved Son. In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace, that He lavished on us in all wisdom and insight. (9) He did this when He revealed to us the secret of His will, according to His good pleasure that He ‘God the Father’ set forth in Christ, toward the administration of the fullness of the times, to head up all things in Christ – the things in heaven and the things on earth. In Christ we too have been claimed as God’s own possession, since we were predestined according to the one purpose of Him who accomplishes all things according to the counsel of His will so that we, who were the first to set our hope on Christ, would be to the praise of His glory. And when you heard the word of truth (the gospel of your salvation) – when you believed in Christ – you were marked with the seal of the promised Holy Spirit, who is the down payment of our inheritance, until the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of His glory.”)

These secrets are revealed to those called for God’s purpose in this age. In Jesus’ millennial age, when Satan is bound, “all who call on the name of the Lord will be saved.” Abraham, Isaac and Jacob’s descendents, “Israelites, physical and spiritual” will be delivered and know to whom they owe allegiance. (These things were revealed to Jesus’ prophets and why “His church is built on the foundation of the prophets, apostles and Jesus Himself the Chief Cornerstone.)

Jeremiah 33:15-16; “In those days and at that time I will raise up for them a righteous descendant of David, “Jesus.” “‘He will do what is just and right in the land. Under His rule Judah will enjoy safety and Jerusalem will live in security. At that time Jerusalem will be called “The Lord has provided us with justice.” (17-18; For I, the Lord, promise: “David will never lack a successor to occupy the throne over the nation of Israel. Nor will the Levitical priests ever lack someone to stand before Me and continually offer up burnt offerings, sacrifice cereal offerings, and offer the other sacrifices.”’”

(19-22; The Lord spoke further to Jeremiah. “I, Lord, make the following promise: ‘I have made a covenant with the day and with the night that they will always come at their proper times. Only if you people could break that covenant could My covenant with My servant David and My covenant with the Levites ever be broken. So David will by all means always have a descendant to occupy his throne as king and the Levites will by all means always have priests who will minister before Me. (22) I will make the children who follow one another in the line of my servant David very numerous. I will also make the Levites who minister before Me very numerous. I will make them all as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sands which are on the seashore.’”  (In other words these all are as Abraham’s heirs.)

(23-26; The Lord spoke still further to Jeremiah. “You have surely noticed what these ‘unbelieving’ people are saying, haven’t you? They are saying, ‘The Lord has rejected the two families of Israel and Judah that He chose.’ So they have little regard that My people will ever again be a nation. (25) But I, the Lord, make the following promise: I have made a covenant governing the coming of day and night. I have established the fixed laws governing heaven and earth. Just as surely as I have done this, so surely will I never reject the descendants of Jacob. Nor will I ever refuse to choose one of My servant David’s descendants to rule over the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Indeed, I will restore them and show mercy to them.”

Israelites and non-Israelites considered dead because of sin;

now alive in Christ.

(Ephesians 2:1-3; “And although you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you formerly lived according to this world’s present path, according to the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the ruler of the spirit ‘Satan’ that is now energizing the sons of disobedience, among whom all of us also formerly lived out our lives in the cravings of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath even as the rest.”)

All whose heart aren’t spiritually circumcised, whose nature isn’t supernaturally changed are “sons of disobedience.” People loving this world’s system of things, “indulge in the flesh” “live the get way.”

(Eph 2:4-10; “But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even though we were dead in transgressions, made us alive together with Christ – by grace you are saved! and He raised us up with Him ‘Jesus’ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, ‘why?’ (7) to demonstrate in the coming ages ‘Jesus’ millennial and beyond’ the surpassing wealth of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.”) (No methodology - but His grace.) For by grace you are saved through ‘Jesus’’ faith, and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God; (9) it is not from works, so that no one can boast. For we ‘followers of Jesus’ are His, ‘The Father’s’ workmanship, having been created in Christ Jesus for good works that God prepared beforehand so we may do them.”)

When people are gifted to believe IN, “when we understand these things” it’s our evidence of our calling and the knowledge that God loved us first. A love like God Himself that’ll never end. Paul did a whole chapter on the subject.

(1Corinthians 13:8-10; “Love never ends. But if there are prophecies, they will be set aside; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be set aside. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part, but when what is perfect comes, the partial will be set aside.”) Circumcision of heart people are Looking forward to that perfect One’s coming. God is the personification of love! God and love are forever!
