Rev.14: 1 “ And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads…
“These are they which follow the lamb withersoever He goeth. These were redeemed from among men, BEING THE FIRST FRUITS UNTO GOD AND TO THE LAMB” vesre :4.
We appreciate the father of glory for granting to some us of now the privilege to be aware of His glorious light, love and His plans for the ages. That through the indwelling light of life in them (Jn. 1:4, 9) they must follow Him withersoever He goeth. And of course, this is a realm where there is no choice of ours, anymore. By choice here I do not mean what men call ‘free will’ for of a truth there is no free will or man being a ‘free moral agent’ for he who is a free moral agent will choose not to be a slave to the devil – sin (Rom. 6:16, Eph. 2:2, 4:17-19). For I see men to be either a slave to the devil or a slave to God. In fact Jesus said,
“ The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.” (John.3:8)
If Jesus where to have had a choice, he would not have gone to the cross, he ended up saying, they will not mine be done. He lost his wll for and in the purpose of the Father.
