In The Word we are struck by people’s calls to service. We can start by realizing that God has called each of us into His service and submit to that calling and His will for our lives.
“It is God Himself who has made us what we are and given us new lives from Christ Jesus; and long ages ago He planned that we should spend these lives in helping others.” Ephesians 2:10
Again, let us get busy and study The Word: https://www.biblestudytools.com/topical-verses/serving-bible-verses/
Foreknow: The Greek word is proginosko, and means “to have knowledge beforehand; to foreknow.” It is used five times in the New Testament:
Acts 26:5 (“knew me from the beginning”)
Romans 8:29 (“foreknow”)
Romans 11:2 (“foreknew”)
1 Peter 1:20 (“foreordained”)
2 Peter 3:17 (“know these things before”)
Predestinate: The Greek word is proorizo, and means “to decide beforehand; foreordain; appoint beforehand.”
It is used six times in the New Testament:
Acts 4:28 (“determined before to be done”)
Romans 8:29 and 30 (“predestinate”)
1 Corinthians 2:7 (“ordained before the world”)
Ephesians 1:5 and 11 (“predestinated”)
Conformed: The Greek word is summorphos and means, “having the same form as another, similar, conformed to.” It is used twice in the New Testament:
Romans 8:29: (“conformed to”)
Philippians 3:21 (“fashioned like unto”)
So Romans 8:29-30 tells us that there is a group of people whom God knew in times past. He decided in times past that this group of people would be conformed to the image of His Son. God called the group of people who were conformed to the image of His Son. Those called by God were also justified and glorified by Him. http://noeo.net/call.htm
We were known before we were created. I know it sounds somewhat difficult to follow, but Love created us and has allowed us to be for Love’s reasons.
Again, I refer back to God is Love: “Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through Him. His is love: not that we loved God, but that He Loved us and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.” 1 John 4:8-10
We as humans stepped awry of The Word of God. It just came to my Spirit, yes Satan tempted through the serpent. God “allowed” this, in the belief that Man would do as instructed. Mind you, of every fruit of the garden they could eat, but one! This has never ceased to blow my mind. The Tree of Life was in the same garden. Eat of every tree they did to completion. We are told of rivers of Life:
“He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.’ But this He spoke of the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were to receive; for the Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.” John 7:38-39
“But whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.” John 4:14
“The words of a man’s mouth are deep waters; The fountain of wisdom is a bubbling brook.” Proverbs 18:4
“He will drink from the brook by the wayside; Therefore He will lift up His head.” Psalm 110:7
“Therefore you will joyously draw water from the springs of salvation.” Isaiah 12:3
“Then the LORD God said, ‘Behold, the man has become like one of Us, knowing good and evil; and now, he might stretch out his hand, and take also from the tree of life, and eat, and live forever’ — therefore the LORD God sent him out from the garden of Eden, to cultivate the ground from which he was taken. So He drove the man out; and at the east of the garden of Eden He stationed the cherubim and the flaming sword which turned every direction to guard the way to the tree of life.” Genesis 3:22-24
“Then he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb, in the middle of its street. On either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.” Revelation 22:1-2
“Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter by the gates into the city.” Revelation 22:14
“It will come about that every living creature which swarms in every place where the river goes, will live. And there will be very many fish, for these waters go there and the others become fresh; so everything will live where the river goes.” Ezekiel 47:9
“Jesus answered and said to her, ‘Everyone who drinks of this water will thirst again.” John 4:13
“He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.’ But this He spoke of the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were to receive; for the Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.” John 7:38,39
We run amok with Scripture on our part. What we have within, what we are journeying toward, Amen
Our creation was foreknown, our function predestined. When we were created we were created with a purpose. In my earlier times of sharing, I admit that I did not fully understand this in the least. I am beginning to perceive with my full Spirit what I was sent for, Amen.
Funny enough, in my dream I had said I would ‘share’ what I experienced. Frankly, in Love, it is best for you to consider it. Do not take my word for truth. Examine your life. What makes you truly happy? A lot of people might go awry with this question.
I am aware that for some it is not a mother’s or father’s love, but getting away from them. Ok, stop, why were you happy to get away? Your chance to live as you feel is right, correct? For people with loving parents, a supportive family setting, the joy is the ability to set up your own family. All of a sudden we delve into the things that make you happy.
Let us take it a step further, okay! If ‘Something’ could make you speechlessly happy or continue to floor you every step of the way, then what?
Amazingly, there may be a “Job season .” I am aware that I have used that term a fair bit. Our teaching is in this Universe’s best ‘Textbook’, Story-Book, His-Story lesson, aka The Bible. We can go on and define it. It simply is as it is.
Even if we believe that some parts are mis-typed, some stories mistold, it stands as the greatest His-story text. Three major Religions attribute their His-story to segmentation of The Bible. In essence, all the religions of the word look to a central being. We may call Him by different names, but respectfully, they all refer to the same root.
In catching a somewhat short glimpse of what lies beyond, I was mesmerized by what I experienced. Some of the things I saw, I will share, others belie the imagination.
