    Those whom the Lord Jesus knew before time began,He strength because He knew their hearts.So they were chosen and predestined for salvation,it s His amazing grace.
  • Chalizamudzi Elizabeth Matola
    God looks at all of us as equals. His reward will not depend on how long we have been Christians. Even new converts are valued and will receive the same eternal life as those who were converted long time ago
  • Obbie Beal
    verse 1-16 Jesus teach us more about the 'ways' of Jehovah GOD These 'way" of GOD' are already established predestined by and for GOD's glory and honor. My opinion, personal belief, ..., ..., DO NOT MATTER as it relates to those 'ways' of GOD example 16 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.
  • I am that Michael Isaac Dale
    My Holy Father exposes all hypocrisy. Ye mock the Son of man before saying, My heart has already shown me where I will be, in darkness gnashing of teeth not dwelling in light. I will never give up nor stop loving God and Yeshua my savior. (Nay. For ye cannot love GOD except ye repent and confess the Son.) It is written, The LORD preserves ALL them that love him: but ALL the wicked will he destroy.

    Rachael: That's All of Us, We All Need a Savior. 5yrs. Asking The Lord for Help, Forgiveness, l'm Convinced I can't be Saved. 2yrs. I didn't Talk to Him. Then He Told me I Need Salvation, Go Forward and Ask Forgiveness. It was a little Scary Stepping Out and Going Forward. Next Morning WOW. This is not The World I Went to Sleep in. A Heavy Gone. Cursing Gone, I Am Changed. I Told Everyone.
  • Allen
    Racheal, dont give up, satan seeks to destroy us, he is a liar and murderer. But Jesus has won the victory for us. Study your Bible , pray and seek God. Paul wrote I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. When Jesus is with us, nothing can stand against us. May God Bless and strengthen you with The Holy Spirit.
