Bible Teaching on Calling and Election

I see different kinds of calling and election mentioned in the Bible. In 2 Peter 1:10 we read: "Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:"

Apparently there is something WE can do to MAKE our calling and election sure. If it was all up to God, these verses would not make much sense in my view.

There is a calling to salvation. There is a calling to fellowship with the Son of God. "God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord." (1 Corinthians 1:9) There is also a calling to a particular ministry office, ministry function, place or assignment of God.

Though we may be called for any number of these things, unless God chooses us - SELECTS US - for that thing, we will not fulfil the calling.

"Many are called, but few are chosen".

The people who are chosen are those who pass God's tests.

It is not a matter of God wilfully rejecting some people and loving others. God chooses those who pass the tests. Through many difficulties we must enter the kingdom of God, the Scriptures say.

It is also difficult to be selected by God to actually enter the calling that may be on your life. Satan will fight it. You will also have to fight with your own carnal tendencies, and with the system of the world that seeks to weigh you down with cares and worries.

CAN WE AFFECT GOD’S PLAN TO SAVE PEOPLE?

It all started with deep heart rendering questions in my heart. Why, when God truly wants to save souls and I sincerely want to play my part in that, there are not as many finances available as we would need to fully achieve that goal? I was serving God as a senior pastor in Romania […]

How God feels when you waste the gifts He gave you

Being about Our Father’s Business

I opened my Bible this morning to the verse in Luke 2:49 in which Jesus said to His parents, “Why did you seek Me? Did you not know that I must be about My Father’s business?” Jesus even as a child put a higher priority on “His Father’s Business” than on the concerns of his […]

Can Man Thwart the Will of God?

There are many who would believe that man cannot “Thwart” the will of God, but what exactly does the Scripture say? Can Man’s Choices “Thwart” God? Recently I received a comment on a facebook post that; if man has the ability to choose, then he can “thwart” (to hinder, obstruct, frustrate, or defeat) God and […]

You Are Being Watched. Do You Know Why?

You Are Being Watched. Do You Know Why?

Did you know that you are being watched? Saint Paul says that the apostles are “a spectacle to the whole universe, to angels as well as to men” (1 Cor. 4:9 NIV). In other words, not only do other human beings in our world watch what those who belong to Jesus do on this planet, other beings not of this world are watching as well. Sounds like a plot for a science-fiction movie, doesn’t it? But it is truth, not fiction, and this truth is confirmed in Scripture.

The Cancelled Ticket

A gorgeous day I mused in my Sunny English Garden

Knowing God has made me rich with no beg yer pardon.

I’m Ok I am secure its stamped upon my ticket,

Front row seats in heaven and pastor’s signature on it!

Suddenly a disturbing sound thundered from the Heavens,

My time to front my good buddy, Lord, I thought,

I tried to remember back to all the truths He taught.

CALVIN: Wrong from the beginning

Instead of fighting over, arguing about, or just trying to disprove the Doctrines put forward by John Calvin, why not look at the errors he made when he formulated those Doctrines.
