Self Proclaimed Christian: * Are you not Glorified?
In light of 1 Cor 15
theologians traditionally teach that the characteristic qualities of the glorified body are four: 1. impassibility— “What is sown in corruption rises in incorruption”; 2. clarity — “What is sown in dishonor rises in glory”; 3. agility “What is sown in weakness rises in power”; and 4. subtilty—”what is sown a natural body rises a spiritual body.”
These qualities follow from the body's repossession and complete dominance by the soul already in full blessedness.
Are you not Justified?
being justified typically refers to being declared righteous before God by faith in Jesus Christ. This is based on the fact that Jesus' death on the cross paid the penalty for sins and made it possible for believers to be declared righteous and accepted by God. The Bible teaches that those who place their faith in Jesus Christ and follow Him have their sins forgiven and are declared righteous before God. This is a free gift of grace, which is given to all who believe in Jesus Christ. Are you not Called? Are you not Predestined? Did God not choose you in Him before the foundation of the world? Did God not predestine you into adoption as His son by Jesus to Himself? Is your Salvation not in accordance to His Will? God didn't foreknow you? Did you not obtain an inheritance that was predestined according to the the purpose of God?
Does God not work all things according to the Counsel of His Will?
I don't understand how we don't understand.
Many say it's a license to not do anything, this is ridiculous. If you are predestined to be saved by The Holy Spirit you WILL pray, not because you HAVE to, but... Because you KNOW He's your Father and you love Him, you desire and want to pray rather that doing it because you feel like you must. He put His Spirit in you...
If you don't pray and you have no conviction to pray. By pray I mean: communicate with the Father through Jesus by the power of The Holy Spirit then you are not predestined as His appointed son.
The Bible is clear and the context of Scripture is clear.
“In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, that we who first trusted in Christ should be to the praise of His glory.” Ephesians 1:11-12
“He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will...” Ephesians 1:4-5
For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified. Romans 8:29-30
