If you recall my earlier dissertation regarding that second one within me named Watson, he said he would yield and under duress would go along with my desire to completely follow the Lord. I stated to him that maybe we could get along after all. This, after Watson was concerned that I had given him an eviction notice and feared he was about to become homeless. It is now discovered that both Holmes and Watson are related to Audacity, in fact, they are one and the same. There would be no room at the Inn if we were to occupy this space. And how would our house have sufficient room to accommodate the Father and the Blessed Son if we had not vacated this house? Therefore, a formal eviction notice to both of us has been retendered with immediate eviction required. As for me and my house we shall serve the Lord. So Jesus has come back without observation, and Judas’ question (not Iscariot) has been answered and both Holmes and Watson have become homeless but yet housed in the one who had asked me if I feared Greatness now known to be the spirit of god and not the one going about the earth seeking one to be devoured.So the Seed has been planted and the question remains am I fertile ground for a conception to occur and a new birth possible? For if the Groom should come unto the bride, will the chamber have been made ready to meet the Master? Has the chamber been swept clean and adorned for Glory? But prior to the consummation of this marriage there is first a need for a funeral to bury that which has died and “the former man must be laid to rest. That which was the greater has now become the lesser and the tiny seed now afforded the fertilizer to become that tree which will grow to provide shade and fruit for others. Those who desire a personal relationship with God, and who can pursue him apart from human succor, have been divinely favored. But there is more. For those in the ekklesia or of the divine selection who continue on to press in to the knowledge of God, will eventually find themselves the very ekloge of God.  Ekloge is the Greek word that was translated “election.” It means, “the act of picking out, or choosing; the act of God’s free will, by which, before the foundation of the world he decreed his blessings to certain persons.”  Ekloge is the choice that God made of you, before you were born. It is a sovereign selection, made by him for his own purpose and pleasure. At this present time also there is a remnant according to the election (ekloge) of grace. This election is based on God’s knowledge of your character and life, both of which he planned for you, before your arrival on earth. That the purpose of God according to election (ekloge) might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth.  To find you in the ekloge of God portends more than just the end of your carnal failure. For this choice of God is a magical threshold, that leads to his greatest secrets. Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election (ekloge) hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded. Those people in the election, who are the subject of God’s choice, are called the “elect” of God. Elect comes from the Greek word eklektos, which is closely related to ekloge. Eklektos means, “picked out, chosen by God; appointed by God to the most exalted office conceivable.” God very definitely has favorites, and these are his elect. They are destined for greatness. They will learn the secrets of God. But who are they?  The elect are the people that trust the Holy Spirit as their guide. Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit. The elect will cultivate a faith in God’s power that exceeds human reason, even believing that God is able to birth in them a character that matches his own.According to the faith of God’s elect and the acknowledging of the truth which is after godliness”. The elect are not deceived by the religions of man. They are unconvinced by ceremonies, miracles, and manifestations. They desire only a purity of spirit that can make them acceptable to their Heavenly Father. For false Christ’s and false prophets shall rise, and shall show signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect. These chosen ones are bound for a state of perfection that can never be found to lack. “For they are the object of rapt devotion, even the delight of God himself”. Who shall lay anything to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifies. The revelation of God is not casual or common. If you have been allowed to perceive his glory, you have been selected for a divine purpose. Flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. The spiritual things you can see with your heart are no accident. They are a prophetic revelation of your destiny. Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables. Having first glimpsed these glories, you must next strive to possess them. You must put down the vanity of selfish desire and cast aside your human notions of God. Through the spirit you must fill your life with the virtue, knowledge, self-control, endurance, kindness, godliness, and love that is found only in divine beings. Brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall. If you feel drawn to this quest, then you have conceived to the Holy Spirit and have garnered a place in the elect.  Now fasten your seat belt. Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. Even as the masses of mankind will have been blinded by God, it is equally sure that the elect will come to the superlative, sweeping, unveiled revelation of God. Having the eyes of your heart flooded with light, so that you can know and understand the hope to which He has called you and how rich is His glorious inheritance in the saints, His set-apart ones. By the divine choice of God, the elect will come to know him by becoming. They will discover the vision and ability to walk a spiritual path that will blast them into the celestial realm. Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath showed it unto them.  These elect will be given the knowledge of Salvation, and will be filled with the Holy Spirit-but this is only the beginning. Moving beyond these basics, they will come to understand God’s infinite sovereignty. They will learn the depth of God’s love, and thrill at his all-inclusive plan. This unfolding plan involves the interior of a being expanding and absorbing the exterior so that an inversion occurs and the inside (spirit) becomes the outside of a new birth, thereby, becoming that new child of God and a person in Christ. This is the narrow gate or the womb in which to enter the Kingdom. And as this process brings us into the Kingdom of God, we find its location and the beginning of ultimate swallowing up all things temporal. This Spiritual Kingdom operates under the sovereignty of God and wherever He is, the Kingdom is and we are there as well, now led by the Spirit to teach and bring us to maturity
