The Great Cosmic Redemptive Plan
Abraham an ordinary man from Ur was chosen by God. Why? I believe that God predestined him to be the father of Israel. We therefore as individuals as children of God, We got to find our place in this “ great cosmic redemptive plan “.
Ephesians 1:5 “ He predestined us to be adopted as His sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with His pleasure and will.” Romans 8:29” For those God foreknew He also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of His son that He might be the first born among many brothers.”
My views are bordering on Calvinism. I believe that God is omniscient and all knowing. God predestined us to be His children even before we were born. John 3:16”For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.” God wants the whole world to be saved but as I state again God is omniscient and He knows those who will accept Him and those who will reject Him even before we were born. God knew Judas would betray Him yet chose Him to be His disciple. Yet Judas had a choice to accept the money or reject it and follow Jesus. Judas chose the former.
God separates the wheat from the chaff. Knowing the ones whose hearts and thoughts are weighed on the scales of God’s righteousness and calling. King David was a simple Shepard boy. Yet God chose him to be king because he was a man after God’s own heart.
God chooses those the world disapproves of. Gideon was the least in his household. Yet God chose him to be a leader. David was looking after sheep God chose him to be King. We as people look on the outward but God looks deep within.Therefore God chooses those whom He chooses. Therefore logically speaking God chooses us, we choose the right way or the wrong way the choice is up to us. Sometimes it takes a lot of bad choices to make one right choice. Yet that one right choice is orchestrated by the divine conductor.
I believe choice is a Godly strategy for the extension of a Godly kingdom and we are all players finding our place in this “ Great Cosmic Redemptive Plan” wondering where our next move will be.
