The Selection of the Elect
by God

A Step By Step Procedure




PURPOSE

The purposes of this document are to: (a) Once again illustrate the perfect coherence within the Holy Scriptures if read and understood (1) the way they were meant to be; and (b) Reveal to humanity how God determines who makes up His Elect - all the way from the time He "... breathed into his face the breath of life, and man became a living soul... to the time just after "3 ....he (satan) must be loosed a little time. before the end of the Created Universe. [Gen. 2:7; Rev 20:3]


INTRODUCTION

In our document Creation vs Evolution - Part 2 (2) we explained that:

Man seemed to have evolved essentially as all other species. Then, when God deemed that "man" had reached "the right point" in its evolution,  He breathed into a select group His Spirit.  Now, this select group of "man" (who had been another animal species up to this point), became a totally different creature: he was now the Image of God, "...male and female He created them."

Now God guided this select group of "Adams and Eves" towards a special place we know as Paradise or Garden of  Eden. The rest of the non selected "mankind" remained outside.

At this point we have the first, the fundamental, group of Elect - the "First Cut".


DETAILS

Once Adam and Eve, i.e. the selected group, broke their covenant with God by falling into satan's trap, they were thrown out from Paradise to live among those from whom they had been selected. Nonetheless, they were truly and uniquely different - they had been given the Spirit of God and had become living souls. As we read in Genesis Chapter 3:

21 And the Lord God made for Adam and his wife, garments of skins, and clothed them. 22 And he said: Behold Adam is become as one of us, knowing good and evil: now, therefore, lest perhaps he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever...  24 And he cast out Adam; and placed before the paradise of pleasure Cherubim, and a flaming sword, turning every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

In spite of their fall, God continued to look after His remnant, since they now carried His Spirit. 

Then, the colonization of the rest of the world commenced through migratory waves composed of men and women created in His Image.
Over time, mankind proved to God, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that it simply could not understand how God wanted it to live.  Nor could mankind subdue Creation in a constructive manner, as God had intended.

Perhaps living amongst (but not genetically mixing with) the non-selected "mankind" was hampering His people (the descendants of the exiles from Eden) from fulfilling His Will.

Perhaps the interbreeding of the sons of God with the daughters of men (3)  was disrupting the Divine Plan.

Obviously  it was time to purge the world of the non select ones, as well as the descendants of the mixed breed [of sons of God and daughters of men]. Noah, and what his story truly symbolizes, enters in the picture.

Regarding the Great Flood on an archeological/cultural context.... 

The story of a Great Flood sent by God [or the local deities depending on the local faiths] to destroy civilization as an act of divine retribution is a widespread theme in myths. The stories of Noah and his ark in Genesis, Matsya in the Puranas scriptures of Hinduism, and Utnapishtim in the Epic of Gilgamesh are among the most familiar versions of these myths. A large percentage of the world's cultures past and present have stories of a "great flood" that devastated an earlier civilization.
 
Now, we have a further refined group of Elect - only those who survived the the global cataclysm that is symbolized by Great Flood - the "Second Cut".

Eventually God reduces the group of the Elect further by making a covenant with Abram: 1 And the Lord said to Abram: Go forth out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and out of thy father's house, and come into the land which I shall shew thee. 2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and magnify thy name, and thou shalt be blessed. [Gen. 12]
 
That is, Abram (who eventually was renamed Abraham) and his descendants would now be the new Elect ones. Abraham begets Isaac; Isaac begets Jacob and Jacob, renamed Israel begets twelve sons - the foundation of the twelve tribes of Israel - the "Third Cut".

Eventually, the tribe of Judah became the new Elect group. 20 And it came to pass when all Israel heard that Jeroboam was come again, that they gathered an assembly, and sent and called him, and made him king over all Israel, and there was none that followed the house of David but the tribe of Juda only. [1 Kings]

 This is the "Fourth Cut" of the Elect - the tribe of Judah - now, the House of Israel.

Then, Jesus, the Messiah arrives in the scene. The Elect of the time - the Temple Masters and their subjects - reject the Messiah and crucify Him. Once  the (then current) Elect rejected the Savior - the One Who would have led them back to Paradise - God, once again, redefined who was among the Elect.  Now, the Elect group would include anyone who acknowledged and received Jesus as the true Messiah.  This was the "Fifth Cut" of the Elect.

Two thousand years go by, and, after a failed Evangelization, the world is heading to its total destruction. Mary is sent by God several times with instructions and warnings.  The Temple Masters of today (the Roman Catholic Church Administration) - like those in the time of Jesus - ignore the instructions and warnings (4).   As a result, the world continues to plunge into the abyss.

In one of the most comprehensive manifestations of Mary - Garabandal (5) - She announces that there is going to be a Warning (6) from Heaven in an effort for mankind - as a whole - not only Christians - to see the state of its soul and make the necessary amends.  Then, within a short period, a Miracle/Sign (7) will confirm to all of  mankind the reality of God and the Warning He sent.

Regardless of  the faith professed by individuals before Warning and Miracle/Sign - those who acknowledge that said events were from God and accept Jesus as the True Messiah will now become the new Elect - the "Sixth Cut".

The rest of humanity will be dispensed of
[Rev 19: 16-21] by the ensuing Chastisement.  This will be a global cataclysm greater than the one symbolized by Noah's Flood.  However, as God promised to Noah, He will not use water again to cleanse the world of the wicked.  Instead, He will use fire.

After the Chastisement, the Elect will live as we read in Revelation 20:1-6. However, ".... when the thousand years shall be finished, satan shall be loosed out of his prison, and shall go forth, and seduce the nations, which are over the four quarters of the earth, Gog, and Magog, and shall gather them together to battle, the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. 8 And they came upon the breadth of the earth, and encompassed the camp of the saints, and the beloved city."  [Rev 20]

Now, those who survive the last onslaught of satan's snares will become the final Elect group - the "Seventh Cut".

This Seventh (and final) Cut of the Elect are those "...who had not adored the beast nor his image, nor received his character on their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years." [Revelation 20]

The created Universe will come to an end. This should be during or about the year 2,832 - or about 825 years from now.


CONCLUSION

Even though the above illustration has been done with wide brush strokes, its Divine coherence is breathtaking, and the Mercy of God beckoning us to do His Will.  How can we not love He, Who loves us with such intensity?

EPILOGUE

May those who have Eyes to See this and Ears to Hear it, rejoice! For those who cannot do so, we must pray.  (Amongst the blind and deaf there are still a few of the Elect who have not "awaken from their slumber." The faster they respond, the less they will have to suffer. (8) )
