For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10 Holy Bible New International Version.
We all have a predestination but must chose which one we will accept.
There are those who refuse to accept Christ as their Savior. To them their predestination is Hell. That is their choice.
There are the wise who accept Christ as their savior.
Now once we have accepted Christ He has predestined works for us to do. If we refuse to do these works He will punish us, if with nothing else than the refusal to bless us.
Think of a child who is informed that if they keep their room clean they will get an allowance on Friday. It has been predestined that doing their assigned work will be rewarded on a certain day.
When Christ assigns us work our predestined reward may be here and now but definitely will be in Heaven.
When driving down the road we see speed signs. If we go over the limit we get a ticket. That does not mean we cannot drive anymore.
So too it is when we refuse to obey Jehovah’s commands.
He will punish us but that does not mean we will lose our salvation.
If, however, we continue to live in disobedience unto Him, THEN, yes, you will lose your salvation be dammed to eternal Hell.
So my question to you is: which predestination have you chosen?
Prayer: Jehovah Hashanah (Jehovah our maker), thank you for the predestined path You have chosen for my life. Please help me to always stay on Your straight and narrow road. I modestly ask for this blessing in the name of He who is our great Sheppard Jesus Christ. Amen
May the sweet sunshine of Jesus’ precious love bless you today and every day.
