Called – but Not Chosen

 

I have called many to move into a place of power and victory to do an eternal work with eternal benefits.  They completely fool the masses, because they are so talented, people think I must have chosen them.  The fact is, I only called them and then before they went through the surrendering process and the refiners fire, they chose to use their natural talents and abilities to fulfill their calling.  For example: There are many are naturally great speakers, that can hold an audience spellbound for hours.  However, because they refused the surrender process, I never chose them, so they use their soul power, to produce a counterfeit message, and most times it’s scripturally accurate.

People are saved, and healed because they exercise faith in Me and My word, even though the vessel is not a chosen one.  Yet in the minds of the people, this seals the deception, that the vessel is chosen.  The only reason called people are not chosen, is their baggage. In My kingdom, all natural talent is excess baggage carried in a suitcase of pride.

The kingdom cannot use natural talent to do spiritual work.  Spirit work can only be done through anointed gifts.  Because of pride, it is very hard for a talented person to surrender their natural ability to Me, and then wait for Me to decide whether to give it back or not.  If and when I give it back, it’s no longer a talent, but an anointed gift.  When a talent is surrendered to Me, I take it and crush it, until all the pride and self is squeezed out, then I fill it with My Spirit and return it as an anointed gift!

Every talent, including, painting, preaching, playing an instrument, singing, sewing, carpentry, drawing, teaching, business, photography, sound reproduction and all skilled workmanship, are natural talents.  These talents may wow the natural world, but are useless to the kingdom until they are surrendered.  Just the way, “the natural man cannot receive the things of the Spirit of God: because they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them , because they are spiritually discerned,”  1 Corinthians 2:14.   Neither can I receive your natural talents, because they are foolish to Me.  They must be transformed into Spiritual gifts first.

Soon will come the eternal shock and awe of the ages!  The day when the many, stand before Me!  The many who stayed in their comfort zones, refused to surrender all, yet did the work of the ministry, using natural talents.  Listen to what they say: Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name?  and in thy name have cast out devils?  and in thy name done many wonderful works?  [23] Then I will profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity using soul power,  Matthew 7:22-23.

I give you fair warning that, “not every one that says to Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; only those that does the will of My Father which is in heaven,”  Matthew 7:21.

It does not matter if a million people call you pastor, and you have memorized the entire bible; If you know I have called you and you have not surrendered all, your in disobedience and in danger of hearing those departing words!

Friend, Time is up, choose NOW, time is now sealing your final destiny!  Do you have a talent or a gift?  Are you just called or are you chosen?
