THE HOLY BIBLE

 

 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.  John 17:9

PREDESTINATION

 

"For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty: and base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in His presence" (1 Cor. 1:26-29).

 

Three times over in this passage reference is made to God's choice, and choice necessarily supposes a selection, the taking of some and the leaving of others. The Chooser here is God Himself, as said the Lord Jesus to the Apostles, "Ye have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you" (John 15:16). The number chosen is strictly defined-"not many wise men after the flesh, not many noble," etc., which agree with Matthew 20:16, "So the last shall be first, and the first last; for many be called, but few chosen."

 

So much then for the fact of God's choice; now mark the objects of His choice. The ones spoken of above as chosen of God are "the weak things of the world, base things of the world, and things which are despised." But why? To demonstrate and magnify His grace. God's ways as well as His thoughts are utterly at variance with man's.

 

The carnal mind would have supposed that a selection had been made from the ranks of the opulent and influential, the amiable and cultured, so that Christianity might have won the approval and applause of the world by its pageantry and fleshly glory. Ah, but "that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God" (Luke 16:15). God chooses the "base things." He did so in Old Testament times.

 

The nation which He singled out to be the depository of His holy oracles and the channel through which the promised Seed should come was not the ancient Egyptians, the imposing Babylonians, nor the highly civilised and cultured Greeks. No; that people upon whom Jehovah set His love and regarded as 'the apple of His eye' were the despised, nomadic Hebrews.

 

So it was when our Lord tabernacled among men. The ones whom He took into favoured intimacy with Himself and commissioned to go forth as His ambassadors were, for the most part, unlettered fishermen. And so it has been ever since. So it is today: at the present rates of increase, it will not be long before it is manifested that the Lord has more in despised China who are really His, than He has in the highly favoured U.S.A.; more among the uncivilised blacks of Africa, than He has in cultured (?) Germany!

 

And the purpose of God's choice, the raison d' etre of the selection He has made is, "that no flesh should glory in His presence"-there being nothing whatever in the objects of His choice which should entitle them to His special favours, then, all the praise will be freely ascribed to the exceeding riches of His manifold grace.

When his disciples asked Jesus about the sign of his Second Coming and the end of the world (age) he gave the several signs.  Then he said:

 

All these are the beginning of sorrows. Matthew 24:8

 

“Beginning of sorrows” is a Greek idiom for “birth pangs”.  Just as a woman in labor notices the cramps getting more frequent and more intense as the time to deliver the baby draws near, so the signs of his Second Coming will be more frequent and more intense as the end of the world (age) draws near.

 

 

And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;    Luke 21:25

Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.

 

And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.  Zechariah 12:1-3

Note: Some of the news story links (above) may go to web sites with whom we are not in theological agreement.  But we offer the news stories because we believe them to be accurate.  Many of these stories are not being covered by the mainstream news media, not even by Fox News.  Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal was a big Clinton Foundation donor. He was also a major shareholder of Fox News (at least until his arrest in Saudi Arabia in late 2017).
