Spreading The Word Without Saying A Word Ministry By: Chico and Debbie Jimenez
THE TRUTH ABOUT PREDESTINATION UNTO SALVATION!!!
THERE MANY SCRIPTURES THROUGHOUT THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENTS THAT PROVES GOD PREDESTINED US AND ALL THINGS; PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE THAT ARE WRITTEN IN “HIS WORD”!!!
THE FOLLOWING TWELVE VERSES ARE INDISPUTABLE IN EXPLAINING THE ELECTION (PREDESTINATION) OF GOD’S CHOSEN!!! Romans 9:4 Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises; 5 Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen. 6 Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel: 7 Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called. 8 That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed. 9 For this is the word of promise, At this time will I come, and Sara shall have a son. 10 And not only this; but when Rebecca also had conceived by one, even by our father Isaac; 11 (For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth;) 12 It was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger. 13 As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated. 14 What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid. 15 For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.
IN THESE VERSES IT SHOWS THAT JESUS CHOSE THE TWLEVE APOSTLES AND THAT HE KNEW WHICH ONE WOULD BETRAY HIM!!! Luke 6:13 And when it was day, he called unto him his disciples: and of them He chose twelve, whom also he named apostles. JESUS SAID IN John 13:17 If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them. John 13:18 I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled, He that eateth bread with me hath lifted up his heel against me. John 13:19 Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am he. NOTICE THAT IN John 13:18, JESUS KNEW WHO WOULD BETRAY HIM!!!
John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: John 1:13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
BEFORE I WAS BORN AGAIN, OF GOD; I HAD BEEN LOST, WANDERING AROUND NOT KNOWING THAT I HAD BEEN CHOSEN BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD!!! I HAD HEARD PREACHERS OF EVERY DENOMINATION TEACH THEIR FALSE DOCTRINES, DOCTRINES OF MEN, TRADITIONS OF MEN, DECEPTIONS AND LIES OF THE DEVIL!!! BUT, ONCE I HEARD AND BELIEVED, THE VOICE OF JESUS AND I FOLLOWED HIM!!! John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.
THE REASON THAT THERE IS SO MUCH DECEPTION AND THE TRUTH IS NOT BEING PREACHED IS THAT THE DEVIL USES “RELIGION” TO COVER UP THE TRUTH!!! HE CONVINCES PEOPLE THAT DON’T READ THE BIBLE FOR THEMSELVES THAT THERE IS “NO PREDESTINATION”!!! THOSE THAT DO READ ONLY READ WHAT THEY HAVE BEEN TOLD OR TAUGHT!!! IN THE FOLLOWING VERSES, GOD MAKES IT CLEAR THAT WE ARE CHOSEN, ELECTED, CALLED AND PREDESTINATED!!!
PREDESTINATE Romans 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Romans 8:30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. Ephesians 1:5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, Ephesians 1:11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:
FOREKNOWLEDGE Acts 2:23 Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain: (JESUS) 1 Peter 1:2 Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied. FOREKNEW Romans 11:2 God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel, saying.
THE WORD OF GOD IS CLEAR THAT WE MUST HEAR THE “THE TRUE GOSPEL”; TO BELIEVE IT!!!! IN Romans 10:14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? Romans 10:15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! Romans 10:16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report? Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
IN THE FOLLOWING VERSES WE WILL CLEARLY SEE THAT WE WERE CHOSEN BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD UNTO SALVATION!!!
John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. John 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. Acts 22:14 And he said, The God of our fathers hath chosen thee, that thou shouldest know his will, and see that Just One, and shouldest hear the voice of his mouth. Acts 10:41 Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before of God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead. 1 Peter 1:2 Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied. 1 Peter 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. 1 Peter 2:4 To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious. 1 Peter 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light. Revelation 17:14 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. Matthew 24:31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. Mark 13:27 And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven. Romans 9:11 (For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth;) 2 Timothy 2:10 Therefore I endure all things for the elect’s sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory. Mark 13:22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect. Matthew 24:22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. Mark 13:20 And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect’s sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.
AGAIN, IN THESE VERSES WE DO NOT FIND WHERE THE “WORD OF GOD” GIVES US A CHOICE UNTO SALVATION!!! SALVATION IS A GIFT OF GRACE, BUT YOU WON’T BE ABLE TO RECEIVE GOD’S GRACE UNTIL YOU HEAR THE TRUTH!!! THERE IS NO FREE WILL; IT’S A LIE FROM THE DEVIL!!! John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. John 12:32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
