The Called

God calls all. He is no respecter of persons. Yet, God knows the end from the beginning. His chosen are those He calls according to His purpose, and they answer Him. They love Him and choose by faith God’s power to live by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. These have the discernment of Jesus. They hear His voice and do what He says through the power of the Holy Ghost and with the faith of Jesus.

Let that sink in.

The professors of God are not so. These profess to be the called according to God’s purpose. These resemble the called and seem to have answered the call. They don’t all realize, however, that they are not the called.

They may even dissect and judge others who are led of the Holy Spirit and tell them who and what they are not. Yet, being blind, they do not perceive their own state. They think they are being deep, as they so claim; but they don’t have a clue. This is so very dangerous, because these are souls calling out the Holy Spirit to be of sin, while claiming their spirit is of God. Instead, this is blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. There is no forgiveness for this sin.

Professors ask questions, but reject truthful answers. Truth angers them, because they then see their own reality. They see in themselves that which they have judged and falsely labeled in others.

There is a saying: “Hurting people, hurt people.” This is true, if you are choosing to walk in darkness. This is true, if you are choosing to embrace the behavior of the world. This is true, if you are choosing to reflect in yourself the character of the destroyer of character, instead of the Master Restorer, who grants us His image and helps us walk uprightly.

The professors and the “I know truth, but . . .” are really the same.

Then there are those who do not know God; but based on lies, tradition, self, they think that they do. These and others will see the called according to God’s purpose and see their walk or their talk. And they are jealous (some are even angry) that their walk is not as they know it should be. They will dissect those living by faith and the power of God. They will speak as though they have divine discernment of God (and deceive many, including themselves). In this supposed state of divine discernment, they judge others. Yet, they really are revealing their own state of heart (mind).

Those who love God and are called according to His purpose speak by the grace of God through the Holy Ghost. As the Spirit gives them utterance to speak, they speak as boldly as they ought. The called know when God is leading them. This is a learned walk by experience as the soul becomes changed by God, by beholding God in His Word day and night—especially through life’s storms of tragedy, death, calamities, suffering, disappointments, and injustices.

Every soul has her/his own heart (mind) to search out. Every soul must receive understanding from God concerning the actual life lived by faith. Every soul must choose to accept God’s gift of salvation, giving up selfishness, dying to self and self-willfulness. Every soul must consent to being governed completely by God with no assistance nor interference from self. Every soul must be persuaded in his/her own mind of Truth or of an outright lie, or of a lie mingled with the truth. Regardless, 99.99% truth and .01% lie is still 100% lie.

2 Timothy 4:3-4 KJV
[3] For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; [4] And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

Proverbs 14:12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

We are to preach (talk and walk) the gospel which is the good news. But what is the good news? What is the gospel? It is the power of God unto salvation. This is a walk like no other walk. And there are few who actually talk and walk the journey of this strait gate and narrow way. But all things are possible with God.

We each take someone with us: either to the kingdom of God or to eternal death.

God is seeking to reach people, who are rejecting Him one way or the other.

Remember this:

John 10:3-5 KJV
[3] To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out. [4] And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.

[5] And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.

God loves all—no matter our sins. But His love does not force conviction of truth unto repentance, unto the forsaking of sin. God does not force us to love (obey) Him. The called of God according to His purpose loves all, no matter if hate, jealously, anger, persecution is the response. The called pray for their enemies to be saved. They ask God to forgive them. All of us have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. But thank God for His grace and for His deliverance that we do not continue in sin. For if we love Him, we will not continue in sin. Children of God measure and live their lives daily by God’s Word. They are not doing it by their own strength. God is doing it in them through His Spirit. If their life, if their witness, if their talk and their walk bothers or angers another, the one bothered must ask and answer these questions. What really is going on? Who is it that they are really bothered and angered by? Is it the person or is it God?

Let that sink in.
