  • The called according to Gods purpose !

    Rom 8:28

    28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

    This call is a discriminate, distinguishing call to Gods elect, and it will always result in Faith in Christ and Justification by Faith.

    In the original " the called" are distinct, and definite, hence called is accompanied by the definite article. No, all mankind isn't the recipient of this call , but only Gods elect.
    "... I have my own private opinion that there is no such a thing as
    preaching Christ and him crucified, unless you preach what now-a-days is
    called Calvinism. I have my own ideas, and those I always state boldly. It is
    a nickname to call it Calvinism; Calvinism is the gospel, and nothing else."

    Agreed. Chosen, elect, and grace, received, and given are the words Scripture prominently uses.

    God leads the nations caught up in the sin of Adam to destruction, except for Israel in the end. But God in his love wishes to save some from every nation.

    God foresaw and chose this diverse group of people and through grace they follow their live's journeys and come to believe and obey.

    How and why does he choose? God's love is huge and powerful and His ways are above us and cannot be understood by us.

      Exactly Brother, The Called according to God's Purpose are none other than His Chosen Elect !

      Rom. 8:33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth.

      They are Called not by works they shall do in Time, but by the Gospel and the Spirit according to God's Purpose of Election; for His Purpose and Grace was given them in Christ Jesus their Surety / Mediator before the world began 2 Tim. 1:9.

      So as a consequence their Eternal Justification shall be revealed by the Spirit's Work in them according to God's Eternal Purpose of Election Eph. 3:11 in Christ.

      1 Cor. 6:11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

      Rom. 5:13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

          The Called according to Gods Purpose is grounded in those who are called, having been given purpose and grace in Christ Jesus before the world began 2 Tim 1:9

          who hath saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but in accordance with His own purpose and grace, which was given to us in Christ Jesus before the world began,

            Amen Brother ! Because the Called Ones have already been Saved from Everlasting or before the world began 2 Tim. 1:9;

            Consequently, they are not called to get saved; but are Called because according to God's Purpose and Grace given them 2 Tim. 1:9, they already are Saved.

            For instance:

            1 Pet. 2:9 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 marvelous light:


            Hence, they are called out of the darkness of false gospels and antichrist freewill religions of man:

            Rev. 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

              What is the purpose in Rom 8:28 that believers were called from ? Rom 8:28

              28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

              Its Gods purpose according to election Rom 9:11

              11 (for the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth)
              "... I have my own private opinion that there is no such a thing as
              preaching Christ and him crucified, unless you preach what now-a-days is
              called Calvinism. I have my own ideas, and those I always state boldly. It is
              a nickname to call it Calvinism; Calvinism is the gospel, and nothing else."

                Hi Brother !

                I believe God Purposed in Election that His Elect are called out of darkness, so that they shall be conformed to the Image of Christ in Glorification:

                1 Pet. 2:9 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 marvelous light:

                Rom. 8:30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
