God has offered Himself freely, you are not obliged to follow Him. From the beginning, God had to take care of man. Everything He did was good for man. God did not force Adam, but Adam loved to have fellowship with God. He forbade Adam to eat from the tree of knowledge, but He never forced him. God gave advice for his own good. It is always God who takes care of man.
Adam worked and thought of nothing, but God saw that it was good for man to have a wife. God is not wicked, but you are the one who has wickedness. When God shows you a way, it is the best way. Man is so intelligent today, but it is not a good intelligence. In this condition, it becomes difficult to understand simple things.
"For I am the Lord, I do not change" (Malachi 3:6) As He was with Adam, He is still with us. Let us return to God to be in the right condition. The nature and character of God will never change. It is necessary for us to return to the old way. If the Word changed constantly, we would have no support. But the Word does not change, He is the Alpha and Omega.
God's people, who are His Church, have a special place. This particular group of which the Lord Himself is the Head. He coordinates everything. This Church is Christ's own Body. "I will build my church" (Matthew 16:18). God cannot use other materials because it is His own body. If the Church is His own Body, then this people is 100% Christ. We are shown the link between Christ and the Church. It is a marriage bond.
This word is not for all believers, but only for one group. Jesus Himself purifies and sanctifies this group so that it is pure, holy, without stain and blameless. To be blameless, you must be the Word of God.
This cannot fail because God made it possible. Christ died to make it possible. It is God's will that this group comes to perfection, that is, 100% of the Word. It is at this point that God demands conditions so that this people remains in purification and sanctification. God is only speaking to this people.
2 Corinthians 6:14-15
These people are different. When you belong to this group, you have the nature that is in you: obedience. If God has chosen you, it is because He has already examined you. "For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be like his Son, so that his Son might be the firstborn among many brothers. (Romans 8:29) The inside of the person is willing. There should be no fighting. When you are a daughter of God, you are subject to your husband.
God does not oblige anyone, but for His Church, God leads. He is the Head and the Church is pleased to obey because it is willing to do so. If you get out of the world, then you get out of the world. You can't love the things of the world. To be part of this group is a wonderful thing, a privilege. But God is demanding with those who are His because they are to inherit such wonderful things. "For as many as are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. (Romans 8:14)
When you are part of this group, God no longer sees your sins. It is no longer a man who leads you but God Himself. "There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. (Romans 8:1) Likewise, revelation is reserved for this people. God is exacting with those who are His because He has chosen them from among the nations to bear His Name.
"For there will come a time when men will not endure sound doctrine, but, itching to hear pleasant things, will give themselves a multitude of teachers according to their own desires" (2 Timothy 4:3) When you are a son of God, you cannot fight the truth. When you are in error, you repent and change your position.
The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is not the new birth. You must be born again, this is a requirement of God. It is impossible to be born again if you have never been in Christ. In fact, you go back to your original condition.
This group, the elect, lives only for Christ. There is no other name that would please them. Do you really love Jesus the Christ? Does this name make your interior vibrate?
God is only concerned with and addresses His Church. It is not a question of fanaticism, but it is a question of the love of a person. It is impossible for you to love the Lord and not care for your brother. The two go hand in hand. You don't force yourself, but love is part of your life. On the day of Pentecost, they didn't beg anyone. They put everything together because they needed everyone to be well. You don't look at your own interest, you are not selfish anymore.
God has given you the ability, that's why God is firm and demanding with you. God knows that you will succeed. God allows the test because He knows that you will resist. The election, the choice of God will never fail.
2 John : 1
The chosen one is indeed a living person. In our time too, there are chosen ones that God has chosen for Himself. Let us be the good soil that receives the seed. "From the time of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been forced, and it is the violent who take it. (Matthew 11:12) Our Lord is coming back very soon.
See what this church represents. God was in Christ, and Christ has poured Himself into His Church. We don't consider enough the greatness of God's call to us. That is why He is demanding.
2 Corinthians 6:16 to 2 Corinthians 7:1
When you are not one of these people, then it is a struggle for you to align yourself with the Word. When you are one of the people, you don't feel obligated, you do it because your heart is driven to it. Depth calls for depth. God so elevates this group, look at the honor God has in store for this people. "To him who overcomes" (Revelation 2:26) When you are in this group, sin will never have power over you. You will always have the victory.
"Blessed and holy are those who have part in the first resurrection! The second death has no power over them" (Revelation 20:6). Putting the Word of God into practice has never been an obligation. But if you are part of that group, God is demanding of you. We cannot do anything, because the Holy Spirit is watching over you.
