This Bible study is to be considered deeper study. It is written about and for God’s Election of Grace [Rom 11:4+5], whom are no better than any other Christians, but it is that they just have more responsibilities.
It will be taken for granted that the reader knows and fully understands certain and specific truths in God’s Word, which of course is the true mark of Election. If however, the reader is not one of God’s Election of Grace, having not eyes to see nor ears to hear into the depths of God’s Word, then this study will sound confounding and remarkable. That has no consequence on your eternal salvation though, as Jesus stated: ” In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.” [Jn 14:2].
Jesus’ Father is God, His house is Heaven, and there is a special place within for all of those whom believe upon Jesus Christ [Jn 3:16].
All Christians have duties in the Lord, different but equally important duties. Duties that are diverse in nature and scope but are all an intricate and necessary part of the whole. Each individual part is a small piece of that great puzzle which is God’s perfect unbreakable plan. If any one piece of that puzzle were missing, no matter how insignificant that it may appear to you, the great and Devine mosaic that constitutes God’s plan would be incomplete, inconsistent, and unfulfilled. This of course is an impossibility. For God’s Word, Truth, and the fulfillment of His plan and prophesies are by Devine intercession secured, and are most perfect through-in and through-out. To my Christian brethren and sisters: God bless you and may God keep you in His will always. And to my Christian brethren and sisters of the Election of the grace of God, my yokefellows: Please permit me to share with you. First of all, let’s look at the definition of “Frustration,” it comes from the word “frustrate”:
Excerpted from: Webster’s © 1998 New World Dictionary: frus-trate (frustrat) vt. -trated, -trat|ing [[ME frustraten < L frustratus , pp. of frustrare, frustrari , to disappoint, deceive < frustra , in vain: for IE base see FRAUD]] 1 to cause to have no effect; bring to nothing; counteract; nullify [to frustrate plans] 2 to prevent from achieving an objective; foil; baffle; defeat [to frustrate an opponent] 3 Psychol. to prevent from gratifying certain impulses or desires, either conscious or unconscious –vi. to become frustrated –adj. [Now Rare] frustrated; baffled; defeated SYN.–to frustrate means to deprive of effect or render worthless an effort directed to some end.
Part II – I am an Elect
As one of God’s Elect, you have no doubt at some time felt a sense of great frustration over the state of the twentieth century Christian church, and of the state of the end-time generation Christian. While it is quite obvious that they truly do love the Lord, what truths to you are so plain and simple, appear to confound even the most seemingly devout of Christians.
You surely must be in awe of the ignorance and misinformation that is the norm in all the mainstream Christian super-denominations. You could accept that from the heathen religious of this world you muse, but how could a Christian, who has God’s Holy Word the Bible to read; walk away so clueless, spiritually smitten, and devoid of the truth?
I don’t have to go into all the various practices and beliefs among the different Christian church “doctrines” that at the very least; violate the first and second commandments of God, and that at perhaps the very worst, are nothing more than the doctrines of the devil (Mariology & the Rapture doctrine). But how could this have come about, you may have said to yourself; what brought them to this point? Don’t dwell on their state or their fate, they brought it and even now continue to bring it upon themselves, for as Christ said: “it must needs be” [Mt 18:7].
Mariology: Is the making of a deity, almost a goddess! out of the flesh woman who bore the Christ; In direct contradiction of the First and Second Commandments of God found in [Ex 20:3 +4-6]. Don’t get me wrong here, Mother Mary found favor in God’s sight. That means that she was a very decent woman, no doubt the most righteous on all of the earth. And I would never disrespect the mother of My Messiah, but on the same hand I also would never disrespect her memory by turning her into some kind of pagan idol. I am quite sure that Mother Mary is sitting up there in Heaven saying: “No, stop, I never wanted all that, worship God only and His Son as it is written.”
The Rapture “doctrine”: Is the false teaching that the first supernatural being who comes to the earth claiming to be the Savior is going to take them up and away from the tribulation. The problem arises, and it is the doctrine of the devil because as it is written; the false christ, whom is the anti-christ, and who is one in the same satan himself; will come to this earth before the True Messiah Jesus Christ returns at His appointed second advent. The rapturist’s are not taught that, they are programed to follow and worship the first super-natural entity (satan) who comes to us claiming to be the Savior.
And besides, all foolishness aside; there is not going to be any rapturing of any souls by any entities at any time! We don’t fly up to Jesus at the second advent; as it is written, He comes down to us upon the Mt. Of Olives, across the Kidron valley eastward from Jerusalem; just like the way He departed this earth. Read [Acts 1: 9-12] below and let the two Angels of God (the two “men” in white apparel) tell you how the second advent will be.
6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?
7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.
8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.
10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;
11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.
12 Then returned they unto Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is from Jerusalem a sabbath day’s journey.
I should think that any Christian would listen to the Angels of God over Margaret McDonald; it was this young lady in Scotland, who was also diagnosed mentally unbalanced, whom started the rapture doctrine in A.D. 1830. God’s two Angels in the book of Acts above, gave their testimony in A.D. 29 (recorded in the book of Acts approx62-63 A.D.) and it is recorded in the Bible; who are you going to believe, some possessed lunatic or your Heavenly Fathers Word and two of His Blessed Angels?!? Even this nut case admitted that at the time, her “vision” seemed cold and satanic, yet over 50% of Christians base their soul on it. That is enough to frustrate anybody who cares about their brethren. The word rapture does not even appear in the Bible, yet misguided Christians bank their soul on it. The rapture “doctrine” is the satanic “fly away doctrine,” and it is written against in God’s Word in [Ezek 13:17-23] among many many other places. But those who are beguiled by the wicked one will read all of these facts, blink their eyes, and go on sleeping in their heresies.
PART III – I am an Elect
17 Likewise, thou son of man, set thy face against the daughters of thy people, which prophesy out of their own heart; and prophesy thou against them,
18 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe to the women that sew pillows to all armholes, and make kerchiefs upon the head of every stature to hunt souls! Will ye hunt the souls of my people, and will ye save the souls alive that come unto you?
19 And will ye pollute me among my people for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, to slay the souls that should not die, and to save the souls alive that should not live, by your lying to my people that hear your lies?
20 Wherefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against your pillows, wherewith ye there hunt the souls to make them fly, and I will tear them from your arms, and will let the souls go, even the souls that ye hunt to make them fly.
21 Your kerchiefs also will I tear, and deliver my people out of your hand, and they shall be no more in your hand to be hunted; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
22 Because with lies ye have made the heart of the righteous sad, whom I have not made sad; and strengthened the hands of the wicked, that he should not return from his wicked way, by promising him life:
23 Therefore ye shall see no more vanity, nor divine divinations: for I will deliver my people out of your hand: and ye shall know that I am the LORD. (KJV)
I know that you knew the above facts, but I included them on the outside chance that a beginning Christian Bible student or one of the above mentioned deceived were to acquire this study.
Below are five questions and answers, answered from the Word of God, answers to things pertaining specifically to God’s Elect. They should be a comfort, a clarification, and a reassurance to any whom are of God’s Election. May God continue to bless our understanding and strengthen our resolve, bestow upon us all manner of spiritual gifts as determined by the Holy Spirit, and protect us; In the Precious name of Jesus Christ; God’s Savior, The Anointed One.
#1) Who are the Elect, am I one, and why did He pick me?
#2) What are my duties and responsibilities as one of God’s Election?
#3) If I am to be one of the instruments through which God will defeat satan, won’t satan target me for attack? Satan is supernatural, should I fear?
#4) Why don’t feel I like I’m doing anything? Am I being useful to the Father? How come the seeds that I plant do not seem to sprout?
#5) How can I be sure that I will not falter in the end times, and especially if and when I am delivered up to the synagogues of satan?
The above five questions should overlap and cover many aspects of concern to God’s Election. But if something is lacking, we know where to find our answers: It is in that that is written, it is in the Bible, and it is God’s Holy Word. Just as the verse of [Jn 3:16] is the most important scripture to any Christian, the verses below are perhaps the most important and solemn warning and instruction to God’s Elect ever to appear in the Bible. God fashioned it, Jesus Christ breathed it aloud, and the Holy Spirit inspired man to write it:
Mark 13:19-23 (Christ speaking)
19 For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be.
20 And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect’s sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.
21 And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not:
22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.
23 But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things. (KJV)
QUESTION #1: Who are the Elect, am I one, and why did He pick me?
ANSWER: The Elect are men and women in the end times who stand against the false christ during the great tribulation. By the grace of God they are beforehand made aware of the true identity of this imposter and they will not worship nor follow him. They have been given to understand the depth of God’s written Word were-by God can utilize them during the prophesied five month reign of this anti-christ. This is called “having eyes to see, and ears to hear,” and every time you see that phrase in the Bible; it means that what is being said is written to the Elect, and that what is written means a lot more than what it appears to on it’s surface.
Simply stated: If you comprehend, believe, and fully understand that satan is going to come to this earth first, claiming to be the real Jesus Christ and deceive the world, then you are one of God’s Elect. For the Elect are the only ones who will know this, and they only know it because God touched their understanding. The Elect were chosen from among the others in the first earth age. They fought on God’s side during satan’s overthrow attempt (katabole). God picked the most loyal of His children from that first earth age tribulation and will utilize them in this second earth age to carry out certain duties in connection with the prophesied defeating of satan’s unholy and formidable plan.
Part IV – I am an Elect
QUESTION #2: What are my duties and responsibilities as one of God’s Election?
ANSWER: Prior to satan’s arrival as the false christ, God’s Election have basically the same duties as any other Christian: To love the Lord, to plant seeds, to educate those in the Word that seek knowledge of God’s plan, and to try to live as good a life as possible. But God’s Elect are to have patience with others regarding their understanding of the Word because it is not given for all to understand at this time.
Probably one of the most beneficial and important things for God’s Elect to do now is to study study study God’s Written Word, the Bible. They must gain as much knowledge as the Lord will bless them with now, so that they will be prepared for the great apostasy that will overtake the world in the near future. Yes God opens the mind to understanding, but He expects effort and discipline out of His Elect. Knowledge is power for God’s Elect, and He will bless you with all that you seek, but you must seek, you must put in the time. Lazy Elect are of little use to God, do not disappoint Him.
And then of course we come to the main duty of the Elect: In the final five months, the Holy Spirit will speak through them in the synagogues of satan for a testimony against him before the world. This is most very important because it is through the testimony of the Elect at these trials that the 144,000 come out of ” MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH” [Rev 17:5], which is the false end-time church that participates in the one-world political/religious system, which is the first beast of [Rev13:1-8]. These 144,000 reject the anti-christ, who is the second beast of [Rev13: 11-18] (satan), as the false messiah and refuse to bow to him. For at this time the whole world will have become apostate by bowing to and worshiping the false messiah. This truly is an abomination unto the Lord. God has placed a lot of trust and responsibility upon the Elect, but don’t worry, God knows the outcome. We who read and study our Bibles also know the outcome, for it is written; God’s Elect come through, and the 144,000 are in fact called out, and we cascade on through the final prophecies in God’s Word till that day of His victory.
In other words, don’t worry, the battle is already won and the outcome published. What simply remains is for the prophesied events to run their course. God uses His Elect to fulfill and facilitate many of these events. Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit will be with you every step of the way to strengthen and protect you. You must have faith in them and believe that they are with you, you must not take your eyes and heart off of the Holy Spirit and Jesus Christ whom God has sent to be with you during these tumultuous times.
Below we see Peter lose his faith in Jesus for just a second, and he almost died. But then we see Jesus in His great love, save Peter and let him off with an verbal admonishment. This was done to be a lesson to us; don’t take your eyes off the Lord when it is the most desperate and dangerous of times, for that is the time that you really need Him most.
24 But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary.
25 And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea. 26 And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear. 27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid. 28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. 29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. 30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. 31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt? 32 And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased. (KJV)
Peter had a moment of doubt and it almost caused him to perish, doubt has no place in the mind of God’s Elect. God has shown them the truth and He expects them to believe upon it unwaveringly. God opens their eyes so that He can use them to accomplish certain things.
You can’t really blame most of the Christians of today for their eventual participation in the great apostasy in light of the fact that they have been lied to and misinformed by the clergy their whole life in the false churches of this final generation, The same churches that in the end times will become “MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.”
In the minor prophets, book of Hosea, God through Hosea prophecies the state of today’s churches, as well as their punishment. He calls them “Beth-a’-ven” which is translated from the Hebrew to English as “House of naught” (house of nothing) [Hosea 4:15]. Think about it, when was the last time you learned anything deep and substantive about God’s plan in the local Church/Synagogue/Temple? And why do none of them warn you the anti-christ is coming first to deceive the world as an imposter of the True Jesus Christ? And I say none of them because they are all acting in concert, they have different doctrines, beliefs, and faiths but they all are leading their followers to that inevitable and prophesied all inclusive one-world religion called in the Bible: “”MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.”
I might as well just come out and say it: Satan has compromised every major religion on the earth through the slow and steady infiltration over the millennia of his false Teachers/Preachers/Prophets. The world slept on while satan was methodically pulling the strings. The peoples of all the various religions of the world concerned themselves only with the cares of this world, and left religion and the interpretation of God’s will and His Word up to a bunch of mystery men. Could you see now how God could say that they bring it upon themselves and do deserve it.
And also, really what chance at the truth did those have whom were born and raised into the various heathen religions of the world which do not even believe upon Jesus Christ? If the religions that bear Christ’s name (Christian) can’t even get it right, what chance do the Jews, Moslems, Buddhists. . . have at the truth! But God ensured that His Elect would know the truth, and God expects more out of people that he has given more to! So be patient with them, for the millennium will be the first opportunity that many of them will have to hear and understand the TRUE WORD OF GOD! God did not forsake them, He will reclaim many in the millennium. God is in total and complete control and He loves all His children, He may not love what they are doing or how and what they are worshiping, but He surely loves them; He said so in the book that many of them will not read – the Bible.
