OUR CALLING

The Apostle Paul prays in Ephesians 1 that the eyes of our understanding be enlightened that we may know what is the hope of our calling. A large portion of our calling is to continually be transformed into the image of Christ who gave Himself for us. Verse 18 says that we are His inheritance!


Like the Tribe of Levi in the Old Testament we, as they, do not have an inheritance on this earth. God said He was Levi's inheritance! Likewise, we belong to Christ who died for us. From the foundations of the world the Almighty God (El-Elyon), the Everlasting Father put us into His blueprint to be a Bride for His Son.


The eyes of our understanding need to be further enlightened to the exceeding greatness of His power toward we who believe. Our belief is in accordance of His mighty working power through the dealings and wooings of the Holy Spirt upon us individually, and as a set aside group on this planet in total rebellion of anything and everything that speaks of the One True God.


This inheritance was provided by the Father in Christ for us when He raised Him from the dead and set Christ at His right hand in heavenly places. Our place is there also. The devil has to flee at the mention of the name of Jesus. For Christ is far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion and every name that is named, not only in this world but also in the world to come.


God put all things under Christ's feet and made Him the head of all, especially His body, the Church. His fullness fills all in all. In the fullness of time all things will finally be gathered together in Christ for all to see; both things in heaven and things on earth. What glorious days await us. Ponder this thought; Christ endured the cross for the joy that was set before Him; we must train and discipline ourselves to do likewise.


2 Corinthians 4:13 says we have the same spirit of faith; we must not only believe it but speak it. Knowing that He that raised up Jesus from the dead will also raise us up in Jesus. " And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by His own power..." (1 Corinthians 6:14)

Our inheritance is eternal! Run the race and never give up! We live by faith, not feelings. Our calling is sure and He is ever faithful.


ALL HAIL THE POWER OF JESUS NAME ~ Edward Perronet 1726-1792

All hail the power of Jesus Name!
Let angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem,
And crown Him Lord of all;
Bring forth the royal diadem,
And crown Him Lord of all!


Ye chosen seed of Israel's race,
Ye ransomed from the fall,
Hail Him who saves you by His grace,
And crown Him Lord of all;
Hail Him who saves you by His grace,
And crown Him Lord of all!


Let every kindred, every tribe,
On this terrestrial ball,
To Him all majesty ascribe,
And crown Him Lord of all;
To Him all majesty ascribe,
And crown Him Lord of all!


O that with yonder sacred throng
We at His feet may fall!
We'll join the everlasting song,
And crown Him Lord of all;
We'll join the everlasting song,
And crown Him Lord of all!
