Isaiah 42 God`s blind elect , where are they ?
Elect of God ? what does this entail in the reality of God`s created world , who are the elect and where did they come from ?
Am I an elect of God one might ask ? and does God have a plan for me if I am ?
This Question of election , can only be answered if one puts away preconception and everything you have learned and become as the child God said you must be in order to enter into the kingdom of heaven , while we are alive in flesh we enter into heaven by having knowledge of the reality of God , through diligent study of his living word and having our spiritual eyes and ears opened to hear his voice, not by the flesh ear , rather by the spiritual ears and eyes reading with understanding as God`s reward for your efforts Heb. 11:6
In order to fellowship in God`s mystery, it helps to know what that mystery is and what it entails in your relationship to the living God.
Ephesians 3:9 "And to make all see" what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ.
God wants all who care to know of his mystery and even those who do not care to know , he wants (all) this includes good or evil people , wise people or fools it just does not matter. God`s mystery is available and can be a mystery solved by all who study his written word.
The overall plan of God is for our eternal education , God is our Father who art in heaven and HALLOWED !! be his name, we are his created children and we were created for his pleasure, God has a mystery, because the main stream church is lacking in it`s own knowledge created a divided body of Christ, filled itself with tradition and false teachings and have as God has Declared become an house of merchandise and in need of cleansing , just the way Christ found it before he cleansed the temple with the cat of nines, "SEE" THE STATE OF THE CHURCH.
PRAY for redemption , Both Jew and Christian, into man`s Breach will God send His servant Branch, And Isreal shall Live , tribulation brings forth patience.
Behold I show you a mystery; we shall not all sleep, but we shall shall all be changed, In a moment in the twinkling of an eye, at he last trump; for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. This is 1st Corinthians 15:51-52
So, does everyone "see" with spiritual eyes what God is saying in these two verses?
The mystery to be shown,is actually God`s written truth, let`s read it with understanding: we shall not all sleep , ( we) would be anyone living in the flesh at the time Christ comes at the last trump.
( shall not all) means what it intends and (all) means all not some taken some left..
(sleep) means to die or be dead.
but we shall (all) be changed , changed from the green tree to the dry tree , flesh body to spiritual
In a moment in a twinkling of an eye,at the last trump,
When the true Christ returns and we gather back unto him this is how it will occur , 2nd Thessalonians chap 2 we will not be in the flesh when Christ returns, it is no longer a mystery, for now it is clear (all) shall be changed.
The Lord Calls
BEHOLD my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgement to the Gentiles.
He shall not cry, nor lift up,nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.
A bruised reed shall not he break, and the smoking flax he shall not quench: he shall bring forth judgement unto truth.
He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till have set judgement in the earth: he and the isles shall wait for his law.
Thus sayeth God the Lord, he that created the heavens and spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; HE THAT GIVETH BREATH unto the people on it, and spirit to them that walketh there in:
I the Lord have called thee in righteousness, AND Will Hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;
To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison,and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.
I am the Lord: that is My Name: and my glory will I ( not ) give to another, neither my praise to graven images.
Behold, the former things are come to pass, and New things do I ( declare: ) before they spring forth I tell you of them.
Sing unto the Lord a New song, his praise to the end of the earth, ye that go down to the sea, and all that is therein; the isles, and the inhabitants thereof.
let the cities there of lift up their voice, the villages that kedar doth inhabit: let the inhabitants of the rock sing, let them shout from the tops of the mountains.
Let them give glory unto the Lord, and declare his praise in the islands
The Lord shall go forth as a mighty man, he shall stir up jealousy like a man of war; he shall cry, yea,ROAR; he shall prevail against his enemies.
I have long time holden my peace; I have been still, refrained myself: will I cry like a travailing woman;? I will destroy and devour at once.
I will make waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their herbs; and I will make the rivers islands and dry up the pools.
And I will bring the blind by a way they knew not; I will lead them in paths they have ( not known ); I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things ( will I do unto them,) and not forsake them.
They shall be turned back, they shall be greatly ashamed, that trust in graven images, that say to the molten image, ye are our gods.
Hear, ye deaf; and look, ye blind, that you may see.
Who is blind, but my servant? or deaf, as my messenger I sent ? who is blind as he that is perfect, and blind as the Lord`s servant?
seeing many things, but thou observest not; opening the ears, but he heareth not.
The Lord is well pleased for ( his ) righteousness sake; he will magnify the Law, and make it ( honorable. )
But this a people robbed and spoiled; (all of them snared in holes,) and they are hid in prison houses: they are for a prey; and none delivereth; for a spoil and, and none saith, Restore.
Who among you, (will) give ear to this?
who will hearken and hear for the time to come?
Who gave Jacob for a spoil,and Israel to the robbers?
did not the the Lord, he against who we have sinned? for they would not walk in his ways, neither were they obedient to his Law.
Therefore he hath poured upon him the fury of his anger,and the strength of the battle: and it has set him on fire round about, yet he knew it not; and it burned him, yet he laid it not to heart.
God has spoken to those who love him in this chapter, and has given his qualifications and justifications of his Alpha status: He is our Father who art in heaven HALLOWED !! be his name. amen .
What God is ellaborating to to his children who go to church in good spirit to be taught of God and his plan for us in the end, only to be treated as prisoners in a prison, calling todays religious leaders, ROBBERS: calling those who sit in pews that are housed in a prison and your the prisoners and (yes) God is speaking to (you) my Christian brothers and sisters,discribing the unfed sheep as spirits who will not walk in his ways or be obedient to his laws, he knows you can`t live up to the law,but mindfulness of it creates a better path for man to follow.
God is saying the congregation of those who love him have been spoiled or caused to go bad,due to the holes the churches have them snared in , which creates division and ignorance of God`s Thoughts on his creation and who the congregation should be learning from, God states there is a fury being poured in anger, and the church is burning up and christians are not even aware they are sitting in houses of vanity or emptiness, your just not laying it to heart God states, which heart better translated to mean your mind, is simply God saying , you are not using your intellect with purpose, your waiting and hoping the Robbers can teach you the whole story of God, yet God makes it clear that your going to fail if you rely on what men have to offer and take up your own cross and become biblically literate: Those with eyes and ears let them hear what God is saying in chapter 42 of The Great Book of Isaiah. Isaiah being translated; Strong`s Hebrew #3470
Jah has saved; from #3467 , a prime root; to be open, wide or free, i.e.(by impl.) to be safe; causat. to free or succour: x at all,avenging, defend,deliver,(er), help, preserve, Rescue,be safe, bring ( having ) Salvation, Save, (iour),Get Victory.
God will place:
These are the multiple meanings to the name of Isaiah, if one gains understanding of the book of Isaiah, one should experience all the meanings of the name, for Isaiah is God`s Salvation.
Lets be clear, God gets all the glory and we get breath.
That said , It is as always, useful in turning the key to understanding (if) when we humbly study God`s word before him , we approach him as little children ready to learn his truths.
Isa. 42:6 Read it again, your Father is talking to you his created child and look how gentle he is being to those after his own heart, the elect child of God who have a destinty and are ready to learn there certainly is more to God`s word than they have been taught.
The book of Romans is where we will dig a little deeper in search of God`s elect children, who are foreknown and foreordained, as was Paul himself.
I`d like you to start with Romans chapter 1, it is of immense value to all who seek to serve God as his elect, as it is the reality of God in action, God is talking to the elect and about the christian churchs performance.
Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
By whom we have faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
And not only so,but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation works patience;
And patience, experience; and experience hope:
And maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given to us.
Justification by faith; Rom. 1:16-17 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to (everyone) that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, the Just Shall Live By Faith. Hab 2:4
Moving forward in the Book of Romans chapter 8, we find the elect of God recieveing Justification and instruction from God.
Rom 8:1 we begin, There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Jesus Christ, who walk not after the flesh, but after the spirit.
8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
8:3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemed sin in the flesh:
8:4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the spirit.
8:5 For they that are after the flesh do mind things of the flesh;but they that are after the Spirit things of the Spirit.
8:6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be Spiritually minded is life and peace.
8:7 Because the carnal mind is emnity(hate) against God: for it is not subject to the law of God,neither indeed can be.
8:8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God
8:9 but you are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
8:10 And if Christ be in you,the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
8:11 but if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised Christ up from the dead shall also quicken(refresh) your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
8:12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.
8:13 But if you live after the flesh, ye shall die; but if you through thr Spirit do mortify(Kill)the deeds of the body,you shall live.
8:14 For as many are lead by the Spitit of God, they (are) the sons of God.
8:15 For you have not recieved the spirit of bondage again to fear; but you have recieved the Spirit of (adoption),whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
8:16 The Spirit itself bear witness with our spirit, that we (are) the children of God.
8:17 And if children, then heirs; (heirs) of God and joint heirs with Christ; if so be we suffer with him, that we may also be glorified together.
8:18 For I reckon the suffering of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which (shall be revealed) in us.
8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God
8:20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, notwillingly,but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope.
8:21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
8:22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth together and travaileth in pain till now.
8:23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the (first fruits) of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body. ( Pastor note:) The elect are waiting for the adoption because they are already married, and are called the wife due to foreordination and the seal of God Rev.19:7
8:24 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?
8:25 But if we hope for what we see not, then do we with patienece wait for it.
8:26 Likewise the Spirit also help our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groaning which cannot be uttered.
8:27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, BECAUSE HE MAKETH INTERCESSION for the saints(elect) according to the will of God.
8:28 And we know all things work together for good to them that (love) God, to them that are ( called) according to his purpose.
8:29 For whom he did (foreknow), he did also (predestinate) to be(( conformed to the image of his Son)), that he might be the (firstborn) among many brethren.
8:30 Moreover whom he did perdestinate, and called. them he also justified: and whom he justified. them he also glorified.
8:31What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
8:32 But he spared not his own Son,but delivered him up for us all. how shall he not with him also freely give us (all) things?
8:33 Who shall lay anything to the charge(testament) of God`s elect? It is God that justifieth.
8:34 Who is he that condemeth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
8:35 Who shall separate us fro the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
8:36 As it is written , for thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep to the slaughter.
8:37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
8:38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor (things to come),
8:39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to ((separate us from the love of God)),which(is in) Christ Jesus our Lord.
Creating an overview of chapter 8 of Romans, we focus on the deeper meaning through translation of given words, there is always more as we say spiritual meat on the bone through translation, so we dig
In the first verse of chap 8 we find the word (condemnation) In the greek # 2631 we find (Katakrima) which means an, adverse sentence or verdict, it is from #2632 (Katakrino) which means to, judge against,ie sentence,condem or damn (curse):
The first verse is addressed to all who are in Christ, who do not live a flesh or carnal minded life, rather they tend to think spiritually and eternally.
The point is that, those who are with Christ in these days are (not subject to condemnation).
However in the third verse we find that (sin) has been condemned(killed) because Christ paid the price for one and all time as the sacrificed lamb of God for our eternal salvation.
