MANY CALLED FEW CHOSEN

GOD IS CALLING
Congratulations on discovering the
Many Called Few Chosen path.
Despite whether you were led here by a search engine, a friend or relative told you about it or you just completed our Christian Counseling Program ...
You have been led here by our Heavenly Father.
This FUN-tastic Many Called Few Chosen Christian path is based upon truth and trust. We will be using the KJV of the Bible for Biblical references. During this program designed for those who feel that God is calling, you will get to make absolutely all of the choices. If you choose to follow the Many Called Few Chosen steps as directed, you will discover the most precious treasures that the Holy Bible has revealed to those who have been called to serve our Lord.
The first thing that you need to choose to do is to save this Many Called Few Chosen forum page to your favorites because you will need to be able to access this page each day, for the next two weeks. I will give you a minute to take care of that and then we can continue. You may want to choose to grab a beverage and maybe a snack as well.
MANY CALLED FEW CHOSEN
GOD IS CALLING
And we know that all things work together for good to them that
love God, to them who are the CALLED according to HIS PURPOSE.
Now, before you allow the enemy of our souls (satan) to talk you into believing that YOU could in NO WAY ever be special or worthy enough to fill the bill and the thought of little ole YOU being called by GOD seems just a little far fetched, please ponder on this truth ...
That is EXACTLY the sort who God has called to serve Him. Let's confirm that, shall we?
1 Corinthians 1:26-28
For ye see
brethren, how that not many wise
men after the flesh,
not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
But God hath chosen the foolish
things of the world to confound the wise;
and God hath chosen the weak things
of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and
things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things
which are not, to bring to nought things that are.
God has chosen to use the rejects of the world if you will, to serve Him. Those who feel that they are worthless. Those who are found to be unworthy by the world and even oft times, by themselves. You may be a loner or
perhaps known by others and even yourself as being a bit odd, weird, strange peculiar or YOU-nique ... That too, is exactly who God has called.
It is written ... God has called PECULIAR souls to serve Him.
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 marvelous light.
Awesome huh? God chooses those who He knows could never think more highly of themselves than they ought to and would seek only to love and serve Him. He does not want a someone who will turn on Him or trade Him up down the road (Some of us know very well how that feels) and/or desire to take the credit from Him in some vain attempt at taking His glory.
So, if you have any doubt that God would call you, because you do not feel like some kind of superhero like many chosen people in the Bible ... Best think again.
Now, that you have a hint of belief that God is calling YOU ... Let us evaluate the words that this Many Called Few Chosen program is based upon ... What does "Many Called Few Chosen" mean? It means that God calls many souls to serve Him, but He chooses few of them.
WOW ... WHY?
ONE very sad reason is because FEW CHOOSE to answer when God is calling. It is kinda obvious, is it not? If you needed something from someone, so you kept calling them hoping they would answer, but they would never respond or even call back. It is quite obvious by their failure to answer your call that they do not want to do whatever it is that you wanted.
Jesus shared these words with us which are located in the book of Matthew as to explain.
And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and
said, The Kingdom of Heaven is like unto a certain king, which
made a marriage for his son, And sent forth his servants to call
them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.
Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are
bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my
fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the
marriage. But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to
his farm, another to his merchandise: And the remnant took his
servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them.
But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth
his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their
city. Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready,
but they which were bidden were not worthy.
Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find,
bid to the marriage. So those servants went out into the
highways, and gathered together all as many as they found,
both bad and good: and the
wedding was furnished with guests.
And when the king came in to
see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding
garment: And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in
hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. Then
said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take
him away, and cast him into outer darkness, there shall be
weeping and gnashing of teeth. For many are called, but few are chosen.
God has called many souls over the years, but,only a limited amount of them answered the call. The Lord calls more now to serve Him. But, many whom He has called have elected to pursue WORLDLY matters instead. That is why it is said ... Many Called Few Chosen.
Because, few choose to surrender the
They may be Christians, but they feel obligated to follow some or all of the worldly trends and find any reason they can to explain away WHY they cannot answer, even knowing God is calling. The problem is that there is a large task ahead and few laborers.
And Jesus went about all the
cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching
the Gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every
disease among the people. But when he saw the multitudes, he was
moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were
scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd. Then saith He
unto his disciples, The
harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye
therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth
labourers into his harvest.
When we are called
AND ANSWER THE CALLING ...
The Holy Spirit gives us specific GIFTS to use as to fulfill God's will.
there are diversities of gifts,
but the same Spirit. And there are
differences of administrations,
but the same Lord.
And there are diversities of operations,
but it is the same God which worketh all in all. But the
manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit
withal. For to one is given by the
Spirit the word of wisdom; to another
the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same
Spirit; To another the working of
miracles; to another prophecy; to another
discerning of spirits;
to another divers kinds of tongues;
another the interpretation of tongues: But all these
worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as He will. For as the
body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that
one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. For by
one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews
or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made
to drink into one Spirit.
MANY CALLED FEW CHOSEN PURPOSE
GOD IS CALLING YOU
Now, there are different types of callings, better said different types of jobs available when we are called by the Lord ... One person may be called to do this and another may be called to do that. These jobs are called administrations. There are many different administrations and these administrations are assigned based on what our particular Spiritual gifts are, which we were given by God, which you may not even know you possess as of yet. But, we will be Spiritually discerning that together in more detail a little later down the Many Called Few Chosen path.
Again ... There are many different administrations as we are told by the Apostle Paul...
And God hath set some in the Church, first
apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly
teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of
healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.
The purpose of
these administrations is to bring in the sheep and glorify God.
And He (Jesus) gave some,
and some, prophets;
For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the
ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:Till
we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge
of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of
the stature of the fulness of Christ. That we henceforth be
no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with
every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning
craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But
speaking the TRUTH IN LOVE, may grow up into Him in all
things, which is the head, even Christ: From whom the whole
body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every
joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the
measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the
edifying of itself in love.
This does NOT mean that one administration is of lesser value within the Body of Christ. Now, what is this Body of Christ we read about? Let's look at the description of the Body of Christ within 1 Corinthians, Chapter 12 ... This is a wonderful explanation by the Apostle Paul, of how we are all united in Christ and how we all should depend on and appreciate one another as well as the Spiritual gifts that each and every one has been or will be blessed with.
Let’s take a look.
1 Corinthians 12:14-27
For the body is not one member,
If the foot shall say,
Because I am
not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the
body? And if the ear shall say,
Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore
not of the body? If the whole body were an eye, where were the
hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling? But
now hath God set the members every one of them in the body,
as it hath pleased him.
And if they were all one member, where were the body?
But now are they many members, yet but one
body. And the eye cannot say unto the
hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I
have no need of you. Nay, much more those members of the body,
which seem to be more feeble, are necessary:
And those members of the body,
which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more
abundant honour; and our
uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness. For our comely
parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together,
having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked.
That there should be no
schism in the body; but
that the members should have the same care one for another. And
whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or
one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it. Now ye
are the body of Christ, and members in particular ...
MANY CALLED FEW CHOSEN WARNING
GOD IS CALLING - TIME TO ANSWER
We are to be ONE BODY and work in harmony together. We are not to hold pride or jealousy because we feel that another member of the Body of Christ received "better" gifts and therefore an administration which may be deemed as being more attractive or honorable. Here is another quick yet potent way to look at it, we will use the human body in this example ...
In the human body, if the mouth was to say to the anus ... "Yo, look at me, I am seen by all. I am able to voice thoughts and expressions and I take in food that nourishes the entire body as for it to be able to maintain health and even life itself in reality. Ain't I something special!"
The anus, which is not as "comely" of a body part, can simply reply ... "Yes, my dear, this is true, I cannot deny it. HOWEVER, if it were not for me, you would be full of it."
So, just as one human body part is as essential as the other ... One Administration within the body of Christ is just as important as the other and must be working TOGETHER.
The Apostle Paul shared more on the Body of Christ in the Book of Romans, Chapter 12 ...
The Apostle Paul also shared more in the book of Ephesians ...
For as we have many members in one
body, and all members have not the same office: So we, being
many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of
another. Having then gifts differing according to the Grace
that is given to us,
whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of
ministry, let us wait on our ministering:
he that teacheth, on teaching; Or
he that exhorteth, on exhortation:
he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity;
he that ruleth, with diligence;
he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.
Let love be without dissimulation.
Abhor that which is evil;
cleave to that which is good.
Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love;
in honour preferring one another; Not slothful in business;
fervent in spirit;
serving the Lord;
Rejoicing in hope;
patient in tribulation; continuing
instant in prayer; Distributing to the necessity of saints;
given to hospitality. Bless them which persecute you: bless, and
Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.
Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things,
but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own
I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye
walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,
With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering,
forbearing one another in love; Endeavouring to keep the unity of the
Spirit in the bond of peace.
There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in
one hope of your calling
THIS ... IS UNITY OF THE BODY OF CHRIST.
In short ... There are different administrations and different Spiritual gifts given
to each individual as GOD sees fit as to accomplish the tasks set before them to bring His will to pass. ALL parts of the body of Christ (Christians) are important and necessary and one should not be upset that they have been chosen by God to be a
caregiver to a child of God as compared to let's say, being elected to be a prophet of God. It may be your calling, but it is God's call.
THE MANY CALLED FEW CHOSEN STEPS TO SEE IF GOD IS CALLING YOU
This Many Called Few Chosen program will provide you with STEPS which will bring forth truth and provide you with information on the Spiritual Gifts that God has given those whom He calls to serve Him by the Holy Spirit as to be able to better serve Him.
This SON-sational path of TRUTH will reveal to you if you have been called and if so, what to do about it and how. This is a fourteen day path and one step should be done each day. As we sojourn along this path, there will be times when you feel so spirited and energized that you will become very enthusiastic and believe that you are ready to move on to the next step before it is time, but you need to CHOOSE to perform this procedure as presented for the entire 14 days.
Please do not rob yourself of this awesome opportunity, by cheating yourself and going on ahead of schedule.
Each Many Called Few Chosen Step only takes about 15-30 minutes a day, but do not allow the brevity of the procedure to deceive you. It is the power of TRUTH shared with us from our Lord and those who have walked the Christian path before us.
I know that it will be difficult to resist going on to the next step once you begin this exciting journey, but if your “cup runneth over” where does all that TRUTH go, that doesn’t fit into the cup? You should only digest and absorb so much at a time, and that way, nothing is wasted and you get the full benefits of every ounce of God's TRUTH that you are about to receive. If you take it slow, all that you will be learning will have a chance to absorb into your mind and your spirit will react when you take all 14 days to complete this Many Called Few Chosen program.
Taking in too much at one time, you run the risk of forgetting some of it and not allowing the natural instincts and habits to establish these new BELIEFS. Another benefit of the full 14 days is that it naturally creates passion and anticipation to return each day, because it truly is a very exciting and YOU-nique program.
In short my friend ... It is like vitamins for the soul that should be taken ONLY once a day.
