Deliverance Follows Obedience

Deliverance Follows Obedience
Prepare your heart to seek God for obedience that you may observe and do all that Christ has commanded through His holy apostles.
"For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve Him with one consent." (Zephaniah 3:9)

Not all men have faith. The called, chosen, and faithful remnant shall be saved

We all have access to grace in Christ. But not all show willingness to receive from Him. Most in fact choose to stand in their own prejudices and light their way by that which they can see naturally.

It's important to make clear though that Jesus is not our substitute but our propitiation. He did not make a summary trade with us. He died on the cross for our benefit. He was fulfilling His plan from before the foundation of the world and opening the door for the purging of our consciences by the engrafting of His Spirit, instruction in doctrine, and the taking on of His own substance within our hearts through the operation of God in us.

It is the remnant that shall be received back to Him in glory. Not the common rock from the soil but those who withstood testing and purification by the work of His Spirit in them as they stood fast in the faith against the blowing of every wind.

God always makes a selection from a selection from a selection...

Revelation 17:14
These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, AND chosen, AND faithful.

Matthew 22:14
For many are called, but few are chosen.

2 Thessalonians 3:2
And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men: for all men have not faith.
