Psalms 121:1 I look up to the mountains; does my strength come from mountains? 2 No, my strength comes from God, who made heaven, and earth, and mountains. 3 He won’t let you stumble, your Guardian God won’t fall asleep.
In my former life as a presumed christian, first i grew in a church going family,was cultured into believing that was righteousness enough, then i took a step and knelt and went through the preliminaries of the so called salvation process for i thought i was awakened and was on the road to regeneration but it was self bound glory and self worth i was after,,i was baptized by water not the holy spirit.
i indulged myself in reading more about God nonetheless..i realized what i was reading or studying was to become vocal in arguments and to be in a position to at least get a point out when discussions arise,,I WAS WRONG.
I went as far as trying to convince myself that the salvation i got was futile and i was easily convinced by a friend who just stated 10 points why God ain’t there and i believed,I grew so valiant and zealous unto this course and even started studying into details how i would at least too argue out why He is not there but just mad people’s assumption.the articles were readily available and the arguments quite convincing.i was lost and lost into this so deeply that some things were at stake when i considered this course much more important.
much took place while i as in my own world of atheism and i would take a whole blog writing it out but that us not the message of this blog, the message of this blog is the reverse timeline creation, how do you get snapped out of your reverie and told that your comfort is futile and the course that you pursue is vanity. Hard it may be but that what selection and being an elect sounds like.Unconditional election (also known as unconditional grace) is a Reformed doctrine relating to Predestination that describes the actions and motives of God in eternity past, before he created the world, where he predestined some people to receive salvation, the elect, and the rest he left to continue in their sins and receive the just punishment, eternal damnation, for their transgressions of God’s law as outlined in the old and new Testaments of the Bible. God made these choices according to his own purposes apart from any conditions or qualities related to those persons
As i write this blog i am confident enough and sure enough that am one of the elects,for salvation is not something to be doubtful about you have to be sure,feel that confidence,be driven with that conviction that you have received the son-ship title.
The creation of the reverse timeline happened like this dear one,,as i was lost in my reverie, my stupid comfort zone n heading straight to hell because of my lack of knowledge(Hosea 4:6) an age mate of mine visited our church(place and time and name anonymous) he was a young zealous young man,He convinced me enough that i had a potential but not i the earthly things i was pursuing but as one of the elects,he shared with me a lot about salvation and it became clear to me that all the knowledge,the studies i did were rubbish , had i put the same effort in what is right before the Lord then i would have been far.
He convinced that all was not lost,we became accountability partners and to date i still cherish the fact that at least God used someone to reach out to someone who was so lost as me, i listened attentively to every thing and drunk hungrily the true words of Gospel and became as zealous as always only this time for the right course.
Brethren i think at least you have always convinced yourself that maybe the course you pursue is the right course but how right can you be if someone else questions it, i came to face the Holy spirit and drunk in its intervention and reign, can you proudly say that to someone else.
we convince ourselves that we got baptized or maybe we grow up in Christians family or maybe you think there is nothing like salvation,that is futile course,i came face to face with the baptism of the holy spirit and i yearn that at least someone too can make that testimony without shame or guilt.there is no salvation where the holy spirit is not involved.
you become saved or a son only when the holy spirit fruits show in your daily life,are you gentle enough,are you patient with life and its characters, do you love,are you faithful and obedient to the course you chose,are you hospitable and humble,are you joyful and you persevere in the midst of thus suffering that makes you strong in the walk of faith..
I was always craving and yearning for human approval and praise from men and i tried hard to always stay vocal in my argument,clearly i lacked everything that the holy spirit entails.
How i wish you too get that right and write or create your own reverse timeline and you will proudly say its a good feeling being and elect.
Ephesians 1:4-11 just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him In love He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved.read more.
In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace which He lavished on us. In all wisdom and insight He made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His kind intention which He purposed in Him with a view to an administration suitable to the fullness of the times, that is, the summing up of all things in Christ, things in the heavens and things on the earth. In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will,
am proud to be an elect so should you.and am glad God intervened into helping me create a reverse timeline.it aint easy pals,,the road is still rocky but the tough get going
