Chosen people dont choose.. Elected people dont elect...God does the choosing and electing.
We are made acceptable. We dont accept. We are accepted in the blood. God does the accepting. God also does the making of us as acceptable...God does
the work in us for His purposes, for we are His workmanship.
If we as people do the accepting ..what difference does the Cross and
Salvation is totallly by the Will of the Father..not our accepting. This is called Soverignty..or Lordship. If we must accept ..it means God is not
Soverign or Lord.
God totally does the work in our hearts ...not just the pumper..but our souls to make us acceptable...the new man..not the olde. In this ..He makes us
acceptable by His work.
All of us in our natural inclinations deserve hell and damnation and God would be perfectly Righteous and Just in sending us to hell and damnation.
God chooses, elects , makes acceptable us in His Salvation for His purposes. For He is Soverign and we are subject.
The historical tendency of men is always to reverse this doctrine by subtilty...by seduction to where man accepts.. we do the work to make ourselves
accepted. If this is the case ..what do we need God for. What good did the Cross do??
We know this is true..because men historically have tried over and over to imitate this system of Soverignty and Lordship in many feudal
institutions and tired to tie this into religon. Kings physically on this earth have been called or refered to as our Soverigns, Lords, Your
Grace...etc etc etc...these are all man made constructs attempting to imitate Gods system. THese are all imitations attempting to transfer power and
soverignty to men. To imitate diety.
All of this from the use or misuse of the word ...accept..acceptable...made acceptable. One use is a counterfit...of the counterfitter...the other
is of God.
This is why the Word and understanding of the doctrine in the words is important. two different directions. One direction of God the other direction
of the counterfitter.
