WHY WOULD GOD CHOOSE YOU?
Have you chosen His Son, Jesus Christ? Do you work for His Kingdom? Do you witness to others? Do you spread the gospel? Do you lay hands on people and pray for their healing? Do you read the Bible daily having prayed for understanding beforehand? Do you pray daily to stay intimate with God the Father and Jesus Christ? Do you obey or even know what God expects you to obey? Do you give to the ministry of Jesus Christ to help see His will done in His churches and for the orphans, widows and the poor and needy?
Do you always ask for prayer about a job and then when you get that job you don’t give to God at all? Do you ask the church to pray for your healing and then when you are better you never thank Jesus for healing you? Do you shut up about Jesus for fear of your friends not liking you so much? What do you focus on in life? Money, family, stuff? What is your goal in life?
Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except (unless) you are reprobates? 2 Cor. 13:5
What to obey?
Jesus said unto him, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments hang all the law (OT ten commandments) and the prophets (OT words of God spoken by His prophets). Matt.22:37-40
And He (Jesus) said unto them, Go into all the world, and preach the gospel to every person. He that believes and is baptized shall be saved; but he that does not believe shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In My name shall they cast out devils/demons; they shall speak with new tongues (prayer language given by Holy Spirit and can be in a corporate church setting when God’s Spirit moves you and causes you to speak in tongues and is always to be interpreted so everyone knows what is being said); They shall take up serpents (meaning you have power and authority over satan, fallen angels and demons and evil spirits in Jesus’ name you can bind them and cast them out – command them to flee in Jesus’ name); and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. Mark 16:15-18
And when He had given thanks, He brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is My body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of Me. After the same manner also He took the cup, when He had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in My blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of Me. 1 Corinthians 11:24-25
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; Ephesians 6:18
Be baptized, flow in love, stay in peace, put on the full armor of God and so much more. Pray, intercede for the lost, love your enemies…
You will only truly know what or how to obey if you read His Word. We are in the great falling away and many are not walking in obedience to Him, don’t kid yourself, make sure you belong to Him. We are nearer now than ever before to the Lord’s return. I pray you will be counted worthy to escape all that is coming on this earth. Luke 21:36
