WE WERE CHOSEN
Brothers, we are blessed by God, above all generations. We were chosen to announce to the world, Jesus' soon appearing. God is signaling to us His children that the day of His appearing is at hand. How many generations before us has had the hope of His appearing.
But, it is us who have seen the prophesies fulfilled, and do know that the day is at hand.
Along with this blessing comes great responsibility my brothers. We were chosen before the foundation of the world, to be the ones who would do the last work. The ones who would make ready the world for His appearing. Even though the Holy Word of God tells us that many will be saved during the great tribulation, which will begin immediately after we the Church are caught up to meet Jesus in the air. It is us who must complete the work of the Church. We are to bring the gospel to this lost and dying world. We are charged not only with bringing the lost unto Christ Jesus, but we are also charged with waking up those Christians who have fallen asleep. Those who are luke warm, not hot nor cold, those who are like the Church of Laodicia.
1Paul, an apostle of
Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the
faithful in Christ Jesus:
2Grace be to you,
and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
3Blessed be the God
and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual
blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
4According as he
hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be
holy and without blame before him in love:
predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself,
according to the good pleasure of his will,
6To the praise of
the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.
7In whom we have
redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches
of his grace;
8Wherein he hath
abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;
9Having made known
unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath
purposed in himself:
10That in the
dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things
in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:
11In whom also we
have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of
him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:
12That we should be
to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.
13In whom ye also
trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation:
in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of
14Which is the
earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession,
unto the praise of his glory.
Brothers, we are about to be redeemed.
15Wherefore I also,
after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints,
16Cease not to give
thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;
17That the God of
our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of
wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
18The eyes of your
understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his
calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,
19And what is the
exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the
working of his mighty power,
20Which he wrought
in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand
in the heavenly places,
21Far above all
principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named,
not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
22And hath put all
things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the
23Which is his body,
the fulness of him that filleth all in all.
1And you hath he
quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;
2Wherein in time
past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince
of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of
3Among whom also we
all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling
the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of
wrath, even as others.
4But God, who is
rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
5Even when we were
dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
We have been quickened from our sins, to be the last generation of His Church. We are the body of Christ and Jesus is the head of us the Church.
6And hath raised us
up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
7That in the ages to
come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us
through Christ Jesus.
Brothers, we are in receipt of His exceeding riches of His grace. His kindness shown toward us in unknown by any generation before us. WE ARE CHOSEN!
8For by grace are ye
saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9Not of works, lest
any man should boast.
10For we are his
workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before
ordained that we should walk in them.
Walk in good works now. Go about completing your assignment from God, for very soon we will stand before Him to answer as to why we did not do that that we were told to do.
remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called
Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by
12That at that time
ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and
strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the
13But now in Christ
Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
14For he is our
peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of
partition between us;
Brothers, we are no longer aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, but rather through Christ Jesus we have been forever grafted in to the vine. We have much fruit to bear in this time in which we are blessed to live in.
in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances;
for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;
16And that he might
reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity
17And came and
preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.
18For through him we
both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
19Now therefore ye
are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and
of the household of God;
20And are built upon
the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the
chief corner stone;
21In whom all the
building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
22In whom ye also
are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.
Brothers, now is the time of great harvest. You and I have been chosen by God to be the generation which shall be alive to meet Jesus in the air, as He comes for us. Can you even imagine how many of our forefathers have hoped for, and watched for His appearing. But, it is you and I, who have been blessed above every generation which came before us. We are the ones with the greatest work to do.
Yes brothers, we must go about doing His work that He has given us to do. I do not say that Jesus will appear today or next month, or the month after that . For we know not the hour of His appearing, but we are told to discern the season, and brothers God is giving us signals, that we are now in that season, and the day is indeed at hand.
I love you brothers, and I hope, and pray that you go about teaching your family, your neighbor, and your brothers that we are the generation which shall see Jesus' appearing. Do not forget to pray for the peace of Jerusalem, and Israel in this hour.
JESUS IS COMING SOON!
God Bless you my brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus,
