THE TRANSFORMATION FROM THE ENSLAVEMENT TO SIN INTO THE GLORIOUS FREEDOM OF THE CHILDREN OF GOD
THE PROCESS OF THE GRACE OF GOD’S CALL
The Grace of God’s Call (1996-1998)
Justification comes from grace (God’s free and undeserved help) and is given to us to respond to his call.
This call to eternal life is supernatural, coming totally from God’s decision and surpassing all power of human intellect and will. End quote.
John 15:16; You did not chose Me, but I chose you.
First: At God’s call, at our Initial Justification, God PERFORMS a heart transplant in us, etc. – God recreates us/Born Again, 2 Cor.5:17; (NIV) Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! End quote.
25 I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your impurities and from all your idols.
26 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.
27 And I will put my Spirit in you and CAUSE YOU [our cooperation is produced (not just enabled) by God’s operation] TO FOLLOW MY DECREES and be careful to keep my laws. – In the brackets added.
28 Then you will live in the land, I gave your ancestors; you will be my people, and I will be your God. End quote.
Did you notice Teresa63?
Ez.36:25-28 addressed to the Nation of Israel that they will live in the land, NOT IN HEAVEN, of course the same principle applies to the PEOPLE of all Nations who are not elected to be members of the Church/Bride of Christ.
Only the Church/Bride of Christ goes to heaven, the members of all the Nations stay here in the New Recreated Earth. – Ez.36:25-28; Dan.7:27; Is.2:4; etc.
But even the Bride of Christ will come down from heaven with Christ at His Second Coming and He will rule over all Nations with His Bride.
CCC 677 The kingdom will be fulfilled, then, not by a historic triumph of the Church through a progressive ascendancy, but only by God’s victory over the final unleashing of evil, which will cause his Bride to come down from heaven.
God’s triumph over the revolt of evil will take the form of the Last Judgment after the final cosmic upheaval of this passing world.
Second: At the point when God gives His grace of Initial Justification/Salvation, God immediately touches and DIRECTLY MOVES THE HEART OF MAN by orienting towards to freely accept and freely choose His grace of Initial Justification/Salvation, every man always responds freely and positively.
This is an infallible work of God in man’s HEART and WILL and man always positively respond and freely cooperates.
