God's Sword of

His Calling by Which We Were Chosen
Ephesians 4:1 & Romans 12:1-2
By The Holy Spirit's
Each one of us
many choices in our life, and sometimes the choices we have made has
others, but, there is only ONE choice that is ours alone to make which
has no bearing on anyone else, and that is whether we will believe on
follow Jesus Christ or not believe on or follow Him. No one on this
can make that choice for you. But, because you have a free will,
you alone must exercise that free will and choose what your destiny
be and where you will spend eternity, Heaven or Hell. This is,
a doubt, the most important decision you will ever make in your
But, without the proper direction you won't know where you are or where
you are going.
In the above
I mentioned "proper direction" - and that direction is JESUS CHRIST…the
way, the truth and the life". Jesus Christ is the resurrection
the life - John 11:25 - "I am the resurrection, and the life: he
believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever
liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?"
Jesus Christ is the way, the truth and the life. He is the only
to God the Father - John 14:6 - "I am the way, the truth, and the
no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
You can accept or
reject the gospel, but in the end you must face the consequences of
free will choice. Why? Because we must be responsible for the
we choose to take and the direction it leads. It is God: "Who
hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our
works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us
Christ Jesus before the world began, But is now made manifest by the
of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought
life and immortality to light through the gospel." - 2 Tim.
Jesus stands at the door and knocks, but it is man who must open the
We were all
to be with Him in heaven, and this was His plan for us before the world
began. His destiny is for us to be His "family" - "For both
that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which
cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren" (Heb.2:11).
His plan for us, to be His "bride" - "He [Christ] that hath the
is the bridegroom:…" (John 3:29). His plan for us is to
the kingdom and eternal life - "As thou hast given him power over
flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given
And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God,
and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent." (John 17:2-3). Do you
have eternal life that you might know the only true God, and Jesus
His Son, Whom He has sent?
Well, people, it
just so happens that Satan also has a plan for every man's soul, to be
with him forever in the Lake of Fire. Each of us, as long as we
on this earth, will be in a spiritual wrestling match with spiritual
that only Satan and his demons can dish out. Just take a long
at what is going on around you - WARS, HATRED, RACISM, TERRORISM, RAPE,
MURDER AND KIDNAPPING AND KILLING CHILDREN. Satan is constantly
to oppress us and use others (including loved ones) against us.
"Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against
wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood,
against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the
of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places…."
Also, read verses 13 thru 18. When we put on the
armour of God, Satan can not touch us in this life or ever.
Satan will come
you as long as you are in his world. You cannot get away from him
until you leave this earth, but, while you are on this earth you will
his enemy and fair game, for he is after souls to be with him in the
of Fire (his final home and destiny forever) where he will be "…cast
alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone." (Rev. 19:20).
Don't allow him to rob you of YOUR destiny in heaven, and, if you don't
give it to him, he can't take it from you. Don't ever believe
"…for he is a liar, and the father of it." (John 8:44), he's a
forever and always throwing doubt and unbelief in our direction.
But, if you truly belong to Jesus Christ, you can't afford to separate
yourself from Jesus for one split second, for without Him you are in
of being overcome by Satan. "Watch and pray, that ye enter not into
temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. (Matt.
26:41). Don't allow it to happen. It's your call!
You can be with
forever if you will accept Him, trust Him, believe His Word, repent of
sin and have faith in Him. You cannot approach God through your
earthly ways, in pursuit of a religion, or by means of any man. "…forgetting
those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things
are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling
God in Christ Jesus." Phil. 3:13-14. Is your calling a
calling of God in Jesus Christ? Are you willing to forget the
of the world that you once pursued and did? "…know ye not that the
of the world is enmity with God? Whosoever therefore will be a
of the world is the enemy of God." James 4:3 Stop, stop
right now, and review YOUR calling and ALL the consequences that are
The Word tells us
that we are all dead in sin and cannot enter into the kingdom of God
being born again of the Spirit of God, as Jesus told us in - John
3:3,5 - "Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again,
cannot see the kingdom of God. Verily, verily, I say unto thee,
a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the
of God." Our heavenly Father made a way for us - He used His
Son, Jesus Christ, to do what no other person, religion, or belief
do, to be the perfect sacrifice that took away our sin, once and for
If you choose NOT
to believe in Jesus Christ, you have SO MUCH TO LOSE. Plus, there
is nothing on this earth worth what the Lord Jesus Christ has gone to
for those that love Him. He has prepared an eternal home for all
who know, love and desire to be with Him: "In my Father's
are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go
to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for
I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there
ye may be also." - John 14:2-3. And, if you are His and you
(Luke 11:13), He will give you the Holy Spirit to help, guide
teach you all things, trust Him.
Faith is your
power in salvation, and, if you believe, you can't lose. "That
believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life." (John 3:15).
The Lord honors faith, even if and when you're wrong, as long as your
is the Lord's. Study His Word and put yourself under the
of the Holy Spirit who will teach and guide you so that you will be
prepared for the battle against worldliness, the flesh and Satan.
If you truly know
His WORD, by FAITH, LOVE and the HOLY SPIRIT, and live Him (Jesus
every day, then you DO belong to Jesus - and your life should be spent
in perfect fellowship with Him, in preparation and anticipation of
in His presence forever. When you live the Word by Faith and
you will share it every day as Christ did, therefore let your fruit
by your works through the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit will guide
you, just listen to His voice and follow the truth that is in your
it's REAL. And, guess what, you WILL know when He is speaking to
Keep these things
in mind: the Word of the Lord is real and true, and the New Testament
the King James Authorized Version IS FOR TODAY, and no man wrote it but
by the Holy Spirit. You can always trust the Holy Spirit who
you to Jesus and salvation, which no religion or man has the way or
to do. As you have read above, there is ONLY ONE WAY to receive
gift of eternal life, and, that is to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ,
by God's free gift of grace. It's your choice! However, do
not turn down God's wonderful blessing, His promise, which He wants to
share with you through His Son, Jesus Christ for all eternity.
Although our Lord
God is loving and merciful, He is also just. We will all stand
Him at our judgment and receive our rewards and punishments as our
deserve - "For we must ALL appear before the judgment seat of
that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to
he hath done, whether it be good or bad." - 2 Cor. 5:10.
What is your
Is it to be with Jesus or Satan? Have you wasted your life and
destiny is lost to Satan, a loser? Think about it - NOW!
is late and your FOREVER is at stake. Are you sure that if you were to
die tonight, you would go to heaven? If you said you are not
then repent and accept and believe on Jesus Christ today as your
Savior, for He became the Perfect Substitute by His shed blood for all
men. "Ye must be born again" in order to enter into the Kingdom
the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say,
Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will,
let him take the water of life freely.
