Those Whom Father Has Chosen to Hear

He who has ears to hear, let him hear (Matthew 11:15).

… Not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God (John 1:13).

Therefore has He mercy on whom He will have mercy, and whom He will He hardens (Romans 9:18).

Has not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honor, and another unto dishonor? (Romans 9:21).

But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God has chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty, and base things of the world, and things which are despised, has God chosen, yes, and things which are not, to bring to nothing things that are (I Corinthians 1:27-28).

So then it is not of him who wills, nor of him who runs, but of God Who shows mercy (Romans 9:16).

Christendom is just another world-religion. We have been called out the religious system; and those of us who have been charged with teaching, like Timothy, are called to “herald the Word” in search of “faithful men” who have the “ears to hear” their calling as outsiders (the ecclesia – God’s called-out-ones).

Our call is not for a re-awakening of some man-made “church.” Rather, the call is to individuals – those whose place in the “Christian” religious system has left them empty, stagnant and restless. It is an awakening to Father’s call to faithfully stand with Him outside of that system.

It is my prayer and desire that these efforts to herald Paul’s evangel will be used by Father to find fruit in those whom He is calling out, and that they will be used by Him to help them on their journey.
