But ye are A CHOSEN GENERATION, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light
[1 Peter 2:9]
“a chosen generation”
It has always been the heart desire of the Father to make His entire purposes known to man. The higher thoughts of God have always sought the mind of a kindred spirit to fellowship with. The eternal divine themes have always sought a man to make its repose…to shape and enlighten.
It has always been the desire of the Father to walk in oneness with man…the new kind of man; vested with ability to carry the full load of the light of divine revelation.
Let us hear the announcement of Scripture today, we are the chosen generation!
The Church today has glorious opportunity to walk in fellowship with the Father…for we have been born of God and are truly partakers of His life and nature. We are the generation to which this blessing and opportunity has come.
Ours is the generation chosen to come to perfection in Christ…ours is the generation that shall bring forth the man child and herald the second advent intrusion. Selah.
Ours is the generation chosen to be sophisticated into all the oracles of God…we have opportunity – this generation – to become intimately acquainted with the Word of His Grace…to become truly vested with and custodians of heavenly knowledge. To carry the eternal torch of divine revelation in our hearts and minds….we are the chosen generation!
We are the generation chosen to be purveyors of the power of God through the agency of the Holy Spirit. He has said of us…we are for signs and wonders; He has said of us…Heal the Sick, Raise the Dead…Preach the Gospel of the Kingdom! We have the testimony of our forebears to glean and learn from; we have unrivaled insight into the ways and purposes of God! Selah
We are the chosen generation.
We are the King’s ecclesia- called and chosen and faithful!
We are the ones chosen to show forth His Love, Wisdom and Power today!
Glory to God!
