The Calling, the Election, and the Great Supper

Immortality Road

Christ said, “Many are called but few are chosen” (Matt. 22: 14). Many do indeed believe that God has a calling on them. Yet very few wind up in the “chosen” category, which is the “elect” category. For the word “chosen” and the word “elect” are translated from the same Greek word. They are interchangeable in meaning.

It is like Christ has invited many to become rulers with Him in His soon coming kingdom. Ask those who feel called of God, As Christ’s followers, what things are we to seek after? Most will not know that we are to “seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness” (Matt. 6: 33). Most will not know how to make sure they are part of the elect.

Making Our Calling and Election Sure

Yet there is His way for us to walk to make sure we become one of His elect. We…

After high school, Kenneth Wayne Hancock enlisted in the Army, serving in a MASH hospital in Quang Tri, Vietnam during the Tet Offensive of January 1968. When he got out of the Army, he settled in Concord, Calif. and married Linda. He was an everyday drug user for three years, playing in rock bands, and yet still searching for the truth and the meaning to life. It was there that it was shown to him that the old self had to die. This led to an amazing conversion to Christ that would lead them to a 14 year stint as full time missionaries to Mexico and Ecuador. He also went on an expedition to Mt. Ararat, Turkey, in search for Noah's Ark. He has appeared on television many times speaking of his experiences.

  2. “Many are called but few are chosen. ” This really is hard to understand for if you are called , you are called to Christ’s ministry and are certainly chosen and therefore part of the elect/chosen. Jesus says that if we follow his commands and teach his Gospel he will be with us even till the end of the age. So all who do this have assurance. But then Calvin says there is no assurance. Our Puritan fathers and mothers of colonial Massachusetts (I am Presbyterian) believed that there was no guarantee of salvation and that God’s choices and his ways are inscrutable to earthly minds. They did acknowledge, however, that a person living a godly life , well that might be an indication the person was part of the elect, hence the term “visible saints” . Whether one was of the elect was a matter of great consternation to these people but they believed one should persevere in faith whether they may be of the elect or not. We can not earn our way to heaven.

    John Winthrop, governor of Puritan Massachusetts several times wrote in his history of Massachusetts Bay that a woman was driven to such madness over whether she was part of the elect she threw her baby down a well thus killing it and found that she now knew. She was part of the damned.
