Who Are the Elect?

Nov 08, 2016

Who are the elect?
Those who will not face the Judgment of God on the last day. As we read in Romans 8:1, “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”
Those whom God has justified. As we read in Romans 8:34, “Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.”
Those who cry day and night before the Lord. As we read in Luke 18:7, “And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?”
Those who will not be deceived by false gospels. As we read in Matthew 24:24, “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.”
They are a multitude which no man can number, from every tribe and nation. As we read in Revelation 7:9, “after this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands.”
Are you one of God’s Elect?
