Who Are The Elect In Matthew 24?

2 Timothy 4:3-5 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; and they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure affliction, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.

2 Thessalonians 2:10-11 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion  that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Ephesians 5:9-10 For the Fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth; proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.

Please don’t turn away from this truth!

The first thing we need to understand is that when Christ came he came for the whole of humanity and when he spoke he spoke to all Christians (followers of him). The Christians are grafted into the house of Israel by the new covenant: we are the seed of Abraham. This does not mean that Israel has been replaced it is more like his family has been made larger.

Rom. 11:1 I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For also am I an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.

Hebrews 2:9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.

Hebrews 2:13 And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, behold I and the children which God hath given me.

Christians are called the children of God. When Christ came he died so that we could be joint heirs with him for eternity. It is the same as if you and your siblings were to inherit your parents assets: we as brothers and sisters to Christ along with him will inherit the kingdom of God: Our Father. You will see the promise of Christ coming and how we as the elect, the chosen, also named God’s servants will inherit with him.

Romans 8:17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

It is claimed that the word elect in all references of the Bible is talking to the Jews (Israel) except for a few times it is said that the elect is Christ, the angels, and the elect lady John writes too in 2 John 1:13 and that at no time does it refer to the Christians: that is simply not true. It is a fact that Christ is called the elect and the angels are called the elect but it is also a fact that the Christians are called the elect: even in Matthew 24. I will prove this to you but you have to be willing to receive it.

Surprisingly the word elect is only used four times in three chapters of the Old Testament. These are three chapters in Isaiah: 42, 45, and 65. I would think that it must be used a lot in connection with Israel/ the twelve tribes since most everyone is convinced that it applies to the Jews: but it isn’t. The four times the word is used is in relation to the first coming of Christ as the mediator of the new covenant. God tells us about his plans to create this new covenant and the reason for it in those three chapters of Isaiah. It is critical that we all understand this important piece of knowledge. Christ shed his blood so that the New Testament could come into effect. To cause all who are called (Jew or Gentile) to receive the promise of eternal inheritance under the new covenant. In the new covenant (Christ) there is no respect of persons: there are no difference in Jews and Gentiles.

Christ represents the new covenant that is why the second half of the Bible is called the New Testament. The old covenant was done away with: that does not mean the Old Testament books are obsolete: just the covenant.  The Jews that are called Israel didn’t do what was right according to the law of God and so there was made a new covenant. This new covenant includes both Jews and Gentiles. The majority of Jews today have not been saved by believing in Christ and still don’t believe he was who he said he was: they are waiting on his second coming as if it is his first. Please feel free to check out my claims.

Jeremiah 31:31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:

Hebrews 8:8 For finding fault with them, he saith, behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah:

Hebrews 8:7 For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second.

Hebrews 8:6 But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.

Obama Communist? That's What Joel Gilbert Tells WND?

Written by Gail Green

WND web site reporter Senior staff reporter Jerome R. Corsi wrote an interesting article today about a man named Joel Gilbert who asked the question: How is it possible Barak Obama had time to teach little Barry to love jazz? In the interview with WND Mr. Gilbert told the reporter “Obama’s official life story claims he was with Barack Obama, the Kenyan, only one time, in the early 1970’s, and then briefly, for a week or ten days,” Mr. Gilbert told WND, “There was a man who raised Obama who was a jazz aficionado, his name was Frank Marshall Davis” “It appears the Obama campaign is finally admitting I’m right, that Frank Marshall Davis, the Communist Party USA propagandist and Marxist, was his real father. So there you have I, Obama is a red diaper baby.”  

Mr. Gilbert with the help of his associates made a video documentary expressing his findings collected over a two year period of research. Mr. Gilbert portrays quit a contrary view to what Obama did in his book “Dreams From my father.” The author’s main objective in making this documentary “Dreams from My Real Father” is to reveal the real crux of Obama’s childhood learning. You can watch below or use it as a link to visit Mr. Gilbert’s You Tube channel where you can find more information about his understanding of this side of Obama. Visit WND and find out why Mr. Corsi brings it up now in his article "More Confusion AboutObama's Real Father (Who is the dad who taught him to 'love jazz'?."

Hobby Lobby Owner David Green is Taken Our Goverment to Court

Column: Christian companies can't bow to sinful mandate
By David Green
When my family and I started our company 40 years ago, we were working out of a garage on a $600 bank loan, assembling miniature picture frames. Our first retail store wasn't much bigger than most people's living rooms, but we had faith that we would succeed if we lived and worked according to God's word. From there, Hobby Lobby has become one of the nation's largest arts and crafts retailers, with more than 500 locations in 41 states. Our children grew up into fine business leaders, and today we run Hobby Lobby together, as a family.
We're Christians, and we run our business on Christian principles. I've always said that the first two goals of our business are (1) to run our business in harmony with God's laws, and (2) to focus on people more than money. And that's what we've tried to do. We close early so our employees can see their families at night. We keep our stores closed on Sundays, one of the week's biggest shopping days, so that our workers and their families can enjoy a day of rest. We believe that it is by God's grace that Hobby Lobby has endured, and he has blessed us and our employees. We've not only added jobs in a weak economy, we've raised wages for the past four years in a row. Our full-time employees start at 80% above minimum wage.
But now, our government threatens to change all of that. A new government healthcare mandate says that our family business must provide what I believe are abortion-causing drugs as part of our health insurance. Being Christians, we don't pay for drugs that might cause abortions. Which means that we don't cover emergency contraception, the morning-after pill or the week-after pill. We believe doing so might end a life after the moment of conception, something that is contrary to our most important beliefs. It goes against the Biblical principles on which we have run this company since day one. If we refuse to comply, we could face $1.3 million per day in government fines.
Our government threatens to fine job creators in a bad economy. Our government threatens to fine a company that's raised wages four years running. Our government threatens to fine a family for running its business according to its beliefs. It's not right.
I know people will say we ought to follow the rules; that it's the same for everybody. But that's not true. The government has exempted thousands of companies from this mandate, for reasons of convenience or cost. But it won't exempt them for reasons of religious belief. So, Hobby Lobby — and my family — are forced to make a choice. With great reluctance, we filed a lawsuit today, represented by the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, asking a federal court to stop this mandate before it hurts our business. We don't like to go running into court, but we no longer have a choice. We believe people are more important than the bottom line and that honoring God is more important than turning a profit.
My family has lived the American dream. We want to continue growing our company and providing great jobs for thousands of employees, but the government is going to make that much more difficult. The government is forcing us to choose between following our faith and following the law. I say that's a choice no American — and no American business — should have to make.
David Green is the CEO and founder of Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc.

Mom and Pop Bakery says 'no' to Biden

Read the following, then watch the video.

Subject: Mom and Pop Bakery says 'no' to Biden - look what happened!
Good news!

When the Secret Service walked into a small bakery in Radford, Virginia to ask the owner, Chris McMurray, if he would like a chance at priceless publicity by letting his tiny store, "Crumb and Get It", be used as a photo op for Vice President Biden, heaven knows, Chris needed all the help he could get. He and his wife had just started the small bakery only three months ago and were struggling desperately to make a go of it with a workload that often required the wife to work 24 hours straight. To the agents' astonishment, however, Chris respectfully but firmly said no. As a devout Christian (who ends each sale with "God bless"), his religious beliefs were at odds with a President whose flatly refused to step foot inside a church (save for photo ops and funerals) since gaining the Oval Office, has just endorsed gay marriage and won't celebrate Christmas but will celebrate Ramadan, etc. Chris was also at odds with that same President for telling small business owners throughout America - "you didn't build that". As Chris explained, he and his wife did build their store and thus weren't willing to let it be used for the Obama administration's political purposes.

Result? Though the female anchor of the local news channel freaked out on the air by wondering aloud if Chris didn't realize what trouble he might cause for himself by snubbing the Vice President, the reality had been the total opposite. Chris has been swamped with business. As he told the reporter days later in amazement, the phone has been ringing nonstop with orders from all over the country for Chris and his wife to deliver cookies and cupcakes to homeless shelters, churches and nonprofit groups, etc. And get this, the first orders came from the very Secret Service agents who'd requested the store for the Biden photo op. Not only were the agents not shocked by Chris' refusal, they were so delighted that they ordered cookies and cupcakes for themselves on the spot.

But Obama didn't say that the small business man didn't build their business on their own!
