Chosen in Christ from all eternity….

“Then He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.”They immediately left their nets and followed Him.”
Matthew 4:19-20

Let’s see if I can get this posted while I wait for my images to load in lightroom which may be possible with the current speed of my laptop! :) My thoughts can sometimes reach the keyboard jumbled & “bouncy” but I am overjoyed by the truth revealed in God’s word and love sharing, so bear with me. ;) I’ve been going through Matthew lately and made it to a favorite verse, “And He saith unto them, Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men. And they straightway left their nets, and followed Him.“[Matt 4:20] That word »the disciple’s reaction to the call of Christ« “straightaway” or “immediately” depending on your translation has always been my second favorite part of this portion of scripture! My favorite part is the call of Christ. :) I first rejoice over the call of Christ to follow Him then I rejoice that the supernatural call of Christ caused these fisher men to immediately leave their nets to follow their Savior! The same takes place in our Salvation. Romans 11:29, “the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.” I am reminded that those who follow the One True God are chosen in Christ from all eternity[He hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world-Ephesians 1:4]. That is a pretty awesome truth, isn’t it?! :) Not only are we chosen and called but we are promised to be “preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ“[1 Thes 5:23] because “He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.” :) [1 Thes 5:24] He will faithfully preserve us, keep us faithful, and present us spotless. I also happened to be reading Revelations 17 on the same day and was amazed over verse 14, “These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for HE is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with Him are called, and chosen, and faithful. Not by our own faithfulness or righteousness will we be called & chosen & faithful or be found “faultless“[Jude 1]  before the throne of God but by the faithfulness & righteousness[Phil 3:9] of HIM who has called us, chose us from all eternity, and will present us faultless before the presence of His glory[Jude 1:24]. But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ-Eph 2:13. I want to encourage y’all today to “walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called“[Ephesians‬ ‭4‬:‭1‬ ] and let your conduct be worthy of the gospel of Christ [Phill‬ ‭1‬:‭27‬]! For we are His workmanship created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them[Eph 2:10]! :) For we are God’s chosen people who have been called out of darkness into HIS marvellous light that we may  declare His praises[1 Peter 2:9]!! If you have found you are not following the One True God NOW is the time to seek HIM!! For HE promises, “And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.“[Jer 29:13] → Are you SAVED?

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:  According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:  Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace”
Ephesisans 1:3-7

“Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.”
Romans‬ ‭8‬:‭30‬

“But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.
1 Peter 2:9-10

Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.”
1 Peter 1:18-21

And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.”
1 Thes 5:23-24


“Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,  To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.”
Jude 1:24-25

"Come now, and let us reason together," says the Lord, "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If you are willing and obedient you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword"; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken." Isaiah 1:18-20
