\\   The Chosen   //

God’s written word concerning the chosen (the called). In the King James translation

1 Corinthians 1:26  For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:

27   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;

28  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:

29  That no flesh should glory in his presence.   (KJV)

In the Living translation 

 1 Corinthians  1:26  Remember, dear brothers and sisters, that few of you were wise in the world's eyes, or powerful, or wealthy when God called you.

27  Instead, God deliberately chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose those who are powerless to shame those who are powerful.

28  God chose things despised by the world, things counted as nothing at all, and used them to bring to nothing what the world considers important,

29  so that no one can ever boast in the presence of God.   (NLT)

Peter & John   Acts Chapter 3   A lame man healed.

1A Peter and John went to the Temple..

2 As they approached the Temple, a man lame from birth was being carried in. Each day he was put beside the Temple gate, the one called the Beautiful Gate, so he could beg from the people going into the Temple.

3 When he saw Peter and John about to enter, he asked them for some money.

Down to verse six

6 But Peter said, "I don't have any money for you. But I'll give you what I have. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, get up and walk!"

7 Then Peter took the lame man by the right hand and helped him up. And as he did, the man's feet and anklebones were healed and strengthened.

8 He jumped up, stood on his feet, and began to walk! Then, walking, leaping, and praising God, he went into the Temple with them.

9    All the people saw him walking and heard him praising God.

10   When they realized he was the lame beggar they had seen so often at the Beautiful Gate, they were absolutely astounded! (NLT)

Scribe note: This did not go over good with the temple leadership.

Peter &  John were arrested.

Acts 4:1 Now as they spoke to the people, the priests, the captain of the temple, and the Sadducees came upon them,

Acts 4:3 And they laid hands on them, and put them in custody until the next day, for it was already evening.

Acts 4:5 And it came to pass, on the next day, that their rulers, elders, and scribes,

6 as well as Annas the high priest, Caiaphas, John, and Alexander, and as many as were of the family of the high priest, were gathered together at Jerusalem.

7 And when they had set them in the midst, they asked, "By what power or by what name have you done this?"

down to verse 13

Acts 4:13 Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men, they marveled. And they realized that they had been with Jesus. (NKJ)

Scribe note:  The thing I find interesting is God could have used Annas the high priest, and or the ones in charge of the temple but he didn’t.  He used uneducated, untrained Peter and John.

Paul describing what others said about  him in 

2 Corinthians 10:10  "For his letters," they say, "are weighty and powerful, but his bodily presence is weak, and his speech contemptible." (NKJ)  

 In the next chapter Paul then goes on to say...

2 Corinthians 11:6 Even though I am untrained in speech, yet I am not in knowledge. But we have been thoroughly manifested among you in all things. (NKJ)

Pastor Lynette Hagin of Rhema was preaching a message recently about keeping the fire burning and in her message she brought out a prophecy her late father in law Kenneth E. Hagin had given back in April of 1983.  She said I want read this prophecy it will help you to understand what will happen in these last days. 

“In this move, in this move, in this move that is about to come it will not altogether be something new that you’ve never seen it will be a combination of everything you’ve seen put together plus a little bit more.  In this move of God that is just about to spring upon you there will be manifestations of casting out demons that you haven’t seen yet.  Now some of you have gone back from casting out demons and the spirit of God said, I begun a move along that line a few years ago” (and we remember that in the eighties), “and men avoided the move.  They mixed some of their own thinking in on it and they tried to control it and do it according to carnal, and according to this way that we think and ought to be done but you haven’t seen anything yet of what you are going to see in dealing with demons.”  Lynette remarks, (And I believe there is a lot of demonic activity out there how about you, yes even in the United Stated of America).  “For demons are let loose upon the earth, they are going about as never before because they know their time is short, and so in this multiplication there is an advance of demon activity, there will be the activity of the Holy Ghost.  Demons that have harassed men, demons that have held ministries in check will leave, and you have not seen yet what you will see in the area of dealing with demons, casting out demons, exercising authority over demons, and you are about to step into them like you’ve stepped through a door into another room.  And secondly says the Spirit of God, you have not seen revival of the divine healing that you are about to see, oh yes you’ve saw those that I raised up, you’ve seen men and women mightily used of My Spirit.  I sent them forth as a pilot program to come and train you, but many just looked at them and lifted them up, and some of them were lifted up in pride and the anointing left them, and some of them became money minded and lost the anointing.  But there will arise” and I believe this groove, the groove in this page a brand new breed, they’ll not be greedy of filthy lurker, they’ll not want to attract attention unto themselves, they would care less whether God uses me, they would rather God used you, and God will not just use ministers he will use layman.  And there will be a revival of divine healing such as you have not seen in your lifetime, or read about, or heard about, saith the Lord.  And a revival of the supernatural not only the supernatural in casting out devils, not only the supernatural in healing the sick, not only the supernatural in speaking with other tongues, but the supernatural in the realm of the seen realm.  Men will see the glory of God, a cloud will hang over certain congregations even the church building for days at a time, and everybody that passes by sinner saint alike will say, well what in the world is that I have never seen anything like that.  And there will be in other places fire of the Spirit that will actually become littoral, oh yes in the Spirit realm some of us have seen it, in the Spirit ream with the consciousness of the fire of God but the fire will actually come into manifestation and there will people sinners as well as saints that will see fire all over the heads of the people.  There will be people driving down the street or down the highway and they will see fire on top of the buildings and they will come and say, what does all them mean?  But you see the Lord will use signs of his presence to bring people in the last days into the fullness of his Spirit and into full salvation.  So miraculous things in the realm of the Spirit with greatest miracle of all in the building so thick caught in the net that the nets can’t hold them, there will be church houses enough to hold the people.  For the purpose of it all is that you may be fishers of men, quit fishing in your bathtub, there are not any fish in your own bathtub, go out where the fishes are and throw out the net, not the hook, the net, and pull them in.  And the glory of the lord shall shine, and the end time shall come, and you’ll stand in the place, yes many of you that stand here will stand in the place of ministry that you have not stood in before, and will stand in the place that is ordained for you from the foundation of the earth.  And if it could be told you, if we were able to tell you in human language that which will transpire in some of your lives your mind would not be able to comprehend it.  For you’ll see it, you’ll rejoice in it, you’ll be glad in it, it is just out there a little ways in front of you, be faithful, be joyous, and rejoice in the lord always and he will bring it to pass.
