Those whom God had already chosen he also set apart to become like his Son, so that the Son would be the first among many believers. And so those whom God set apart, he called; and those he called, he put right with himself, and he shared his glory with them. (Romans 8:29-30)

His disciples asked Jesus what this parable meant, and he answered, “The knowledge of the secrets of the Kingdom of God has been given to you, but to the rest it comes by means of parables, so that they may look but not see, and listen but not understand. (Luke 8:9-10)

“God has blinded their eyes and closed their minds, so that their eyes would not see, and their minds would not understand, and they would not turn to me, says God, for me to heal them.” (John 12:40)

So then, God has mercy on anyone he wishes, and he makes stubborn anyone he wishes.(Romans 9:18)

    Are you in the place of GOD to judge where I belong??

    For we dare not class ourselves or compare ourselves with those who commend themselves. But they, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.
    2 Corinthians 10:12

    In my humble opinion I don’t think anyone should take offense to this post. This is just evidence of God picking His team. Doesn’t mean you won’t go to Heaven. It just means you won’t survive what’s coming. (Isaiah 13:12)

    Being a simple football coach I can relate to this analogy: Only 11 can be on the field at one time. What God is saying is, “Are you worthy enough to be on the field or will you be on the sideline?”

    Remember that Jesus referenced this chapter but a lot of Christians are mislead about the timing of this chapter. Are you going to be mislead? Or will you be humble enough for God to use you in the events to come? Remember that Jesus referred to the Christians in Matthew 24 as the “Elect”! Will the reader be considered among the elect? Or will the reader be apart of the falling away? Remember what God says about the lukewarm church in Revelation. There will be NO FENCE RIDING on this one. Either you will be ALL IN or you will fall away with the lost. Doesn’t mean you won’t go to Heaven. It just means you won’t be found “worthy enough to escape”!!(Luke 21:36)

    God is going to use Ephraim(American Christians) as a witness to the WORLD!! As we leave America when the time is right we will tell the World of the destruction to come. But just like in the “days of Noah” they will be making fun of us and they will be mocking God. Where will you be? Each individual Christian will have to answer this question. I don’t take this post as judgement.

    Now what is the sign that will validate what I have shared with you? America will destroy Egypt so violently that nothing will be able to live there for 40 years.(Ezekiel 29:11) After this happens Christians will have a decision to make. Either get in the game…or remain on the sideline.

    I thought it was an awesome post. Thanks for sharing. Go to this website for more of God’s plan. Peace be with you my brothers and sisters in Christ.

    Sorry Nestor that is just bad theology right there!!

    Romans is written to the Church, but those passages in Luke were written to Israel.

    And they do not make any sense together and I am not even sure what is you are trying to say.
