Excerpts

ElectionWhat another great doctrine this doctrine teaches that all those who are divinely chosen cannot and will not ever perish. For they were chosen in Christ Jesus before the foundations of the world before sin entered the world. Therefore those that have come to know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior will never perish just as the Bible says.God's elected can do nothing to destroy God's eternal purpose. All who are saved are the vessels of God's mercy.Rom. 9:23: And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory,Ephesians 1: 3-11Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: 4 According 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: 5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, 6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. 7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; 8 Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; 9 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: 10 That 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: 11 In 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:What a glorious truth we are about to expound on. In verse three of this passage Paul says blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ. Now look at the phrase "According as" in verse number four. This is as real as it gets as far as pertaining to predestination, election and the adoption of sons. Stay with me for a minute as we look into this passage. "According as" is a connective which modifies the preceding statement in verse three. The spiritual blessings that you and I receive come from the divine will of God and it is all done for God's purpose to please Him to bring glory and honor to Him. The Bible says that we should bless God (that is to eulogize God) because He has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ. There should be three ins in verse three it should be that we are blessed in all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ. The thought is this that we should open our eyes and see what God has done for us. All of this was done because God had a plan the Word says He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world. God chose us before the foundations of the world He had a plan and a purpose for each and everyone of us.Therefore, if God had chosen us to be saved why would He then un-choose us to be saved? Why would He allow us to give back such a precious gift if He had chosen us before the foundations of the world. He chose us so that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love. It was His love for us that caused God to predestinate us. The apostle Paul goes on and says having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself according to the good pleasure of His will. What does this verse mean?John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:This verse says when we receive Christ as Lord and Savior "as many as received Him" He gave us power to become sons of God. That is to say that we have been adopted as sons and daughters into the family of God by what Jesus Christ did on the cross. If we have been adopted by God according to God's perfect will and we are heirs to the throne of God. We are in God's family part of a family and I just don't see any reason why God would go through all that trouble of electing us and then predestinated us to be saved for nothing. Essentially that's what it would be if we could throw our salvation away. It would be good for nothing. Most people believe that we have a free will to choose whether or not we will be saved.
