Israel as the Plan of God


God foresaw the fall of the Host and that of mankind in that same disaster. Satan had undermined and delayed the creation of man as the elohim of the new creation as sons of God (cf. How God Became a Family (No. 187)).


God had created the heavens and the earth in that creation and summoned the entire Host to be present at that creation as we are told in Job 38:4-7. They all had access to the Throne of God including Satan as we are told at Job 1:6; 2:1.


The earth was rendered Tohu and Bohu or waste and void and the elohim or sons of God were sent to restore the earth as we are told in Genesis chapter 1 (cf. Doctrine of Original Sin Part I:  The Garden of Eden (No. 246)).


The third of the Host under Satan or Azazel or Iblis objected to the creation of mankind and their proposed place in the creation as sons of God among the elohim. As a result of this objection they were given responsibility for them.


The Host interfered with the creation and as a result they became the Fallen Host. We are told that God intervened and destroyed the corrupted human creation except for the genetically pure family of the patriarchs under Noah and his sons and their wives (cf. Doctrine of Original Sin Part II: Generations of Adam (No. 248); The Nephilim (No. 154)).


Even after the Flood and the repopulation of the earth, Satan induced the Rebellion at Babel in the plain of Shinar in what is now Iraq. God intervened and dispersed the tribes and confused their languages seemingly through alterations of their DNA structure. The results are explained in the texts of the series of the Genetic Origin of the Nations (No. 265).


The Government of God (No. 174) is explained in the paper. 


The Priesthood of God was to be developed through the sons of Shem as the extended order of the priesthood of Melchisedek (No. 128). God had selected Abraham to undertake the development of the priesthood and the doctrines of the faith. That sequence of the priesthood was established under the Laws of God (L1) and the tribes and their places and locations are explained in the sequence The Descendants of Abraham (No. 212, 212A, 212B, 212C, 212D, 212E, 212F, 212G.


The sons of Jacob were sent into captivity into Egypt in order to develop them under duress. In like manner they were to be brought out of Egypt under their elohim as they had been allocated to that elohim at the dispersal of the nations even though they were as yet unformed. All of this was established to make man as part of the elohim as explained in the text The Elect as Elohim (No. 001) and under the Plan of Salvation (No. 001A).


In order to achieve this event the family of Levi through Amram were chosen to form the priesthood for the Physical Temple Phase, and the three offspring were Miriam, Aaron and Moses as explained in the Pentateuch and the Texts of Scripture and in the Koran at Surah 3 and elsewhere. So also was Judah chosen so that the Star that was to become the Morning Star of mankind in replacement of Satan or Azazel was to come out of Jacob; the Sceptre shall come from Israel (Num. 24:17) where “he shall rule as God.”


Here we see that the elohim allocated Israel under the Law as his inheritance as explained in Deuteronomy 32 was to assume human form as a man of the lineage of Israel both of Judah and Levi within his own inheritance.


Prophecy of Redemption in Israel

God dealt with the selection of Abraham and brought him out of Ur in the Chaldees in order to establish the Plan of Salvation and to establish the patriarchs and priests of Israel and prepare for the extension of the plan of salvation to the entire world.


We see this plan revealed to Job a son of Issachar in the period he was in Midian and the Middle East in the texts written by Moses whilst there. Here the Angel of Redemption was one of the thousand of the core Host of the elohim (Job 33:23).  


So also was the salvation of the Gentiles revealed through Jacob in the text of Genesis 48:15-16.  In this text the Elohim of Jacob is the Angel of Redemption.


It is the understanding of the key role of the Messiah that determines the placement of the elect in the First Resurrection and the grant of eternal life (Jn. 17:3).


It is the placement of the elect as the Body of Christ or Messiah that places them in their inheritance under the law. They thus become part of Israel and within the administration of the Law of God.


We see how the One True God as Eloah allocated the nations to the sons of God and the elohim that became Messiah was allotted Israel as his inheritance (see below). We note in this text that Eloah the One True God is the Rock and it is on this Rock that Christ is to build his Church and the nation in which all mankind was to be inducted.


Deuteronomy 32:1-52 "Give ear, O heavens, and I will speak; and let the earth hear the words of my mouth. 2May my teaching drop as the rain, my speech distil as the dew, as the gentle rain upon the tender grass, and as the showers upon the herb. 3For I will proclaim the name of the LORD. Ascribe greatness to our God! 4"The Rock, his work is perfect; for all his ways are justice. A God of faithfulness and without iniquity, just and right is he. 5They have dealt corruptly with him, they are no longer his children because of their blemish; they are a perverse and crooked generation. 6Do you thus requite the LORD, you foolish and senseless people? Is not he your father, who created you, who made you and established you? 7Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations; ask your father, and he will show you; your elders, and they will tell you. 8When the Most High gave to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of men, he fixed the bounds of the peoples according to the number of the sons of God. 9For the LORD's portion is his people, Jacob his allotted heritage. 10"He found him in a desert land, and in the howling waste of the wilderness; he encircled him, he cared for him, he kept him as the apple of his eye. 11Like an eagle that stirs up its nest, that flutters over its young, spreading out its wings, catching them, bearing them on its pinions, 12the LORD alone did lead him, and there was no foreign god with him.13He made him ride on the high places of the earth, and he ate the produce of the field; and he made him suck honey out of the rock, and oil out of the flinty rock. 14Curds from the herd, and milk from the flock, with fat of lambs and rams, herds of Bashan and goats, with the finest of the wheat -- and of the blood of the grape you drank wine. 15"But Jesh'urun waxed fat, and kicked; you waxed fat, you grew thick, you became sleek; then he forsook God who made him, and scoffed at the Rock of his salvation. 16They stirred him to jealousy with strange gods; with abominable practices they provoked him to anger. 17They sacrificed to demons which were no gods, to gods they had never known, to new gods that had come in of late, whom your fathers had never dreaded. 18You were unmindful of the Rock that begot you, and you forgot the God who gave you birth. 19"The LORD saw it, and spurned them, because of the provocation of his sons and his daughters. 20And he said, `I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end will be, for they are a perverse generation, children in whom is no faithfulness. 21They have stirred me to jealousy with what is no god; they have provoked me with their idols. So I will stir them to jealousy with those who are no people; I will provoke them with a foolish nation. 22For a fire is kindled by my anger, and it burns to the depths of Sheol, devours the earth and its increase, and sets on fire the foundations of the mountains. 23"`And I will heap evils upon them; I will spend my arrows upon them; 24they shall be wasted with hunger, and devoured with burning heat and poisonous pestilence; and I will send the teeth of beasts against them, with venom of crawling things of the dust. 25In the open the sword shall bereave, and in the chambers shall be terror, destroying both young man and virgin, the sucking child with the man of gray hairs. 26I would have said, "I will scatter them afar, I will make the remembrance of them cease from among men," 27had I not feared provocation by the enemy, lest their adversaries should judge amiss, lest they should say, "Our hand is triumphant, the LORD has not wrought all this."' 28"For they are a nation void of counsel, and there is no understanding in them. 29If they were wise, they would understand this, they would discern their latter end! 30How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, unless their Rock had sold them, and the LORD had given them up? 31For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges. 32For their vine comes from the vine of Sodom, and from the fields of Gomor'rah; their grapes are grapes of poison, their clusters are bitter; 33their wine is the poison of serpents, and the cruel venom of asps. 34"Is not this laid up in store with me, sealed up in my treasuries? 35Vengeance is mine, and recompense, for the time when their foot shall slip; for the day of their calamity is at hand, and their doom comes swiftly. 36For the LORD will vindicate his people and have compassion on his servants, when he sees that their power is gone, and there is none remaining, bond or free. 37Then he will say, `Where are their gods, the rock in which they took refuge, 38who ate the fat of their sacrifices, and drank the wine of their drink offering? Let them rise up and help you, let them be your protection! 39"`See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god beside me; I kill and I make alive; I wound and I heal; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand. 40For I lift up my hand to heaven, and swear, As I live for ever, 41if I whet my glittering sword, and my hand takes hold on judgment, I will take vengeance on my adversaries, and will requite those who hate me. 42I will make my arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh -- with the blood of the slain and the captives, from the long-haired heads of the enemy.' 43"Praise his people, O you nations; for he avenges the blood of his servants, and takes vengeance on his adversaries, and makes expiation for the land of his people." 44Moses came and recited all the words of this song in the hearing of the people, he and Joshua the son of Nun. 45And when Moses had finished speaking all these words to all Israel, 46he said to them, "Lay to heart all the words which I enjoin upon you this day, that you may command them to your children, that they may be careful to do all the words of this law. 47For it is no trifle for you, but it is your life, and thereby you shall live long in the land which you are going over the Jordan to possess." 48And the LORD said to Moses that very day, 49"Ascend this mountain of the Ab'arim, Mount Nebo, which is in the land of Moab, opposite Jericho; and view the land of Canaan, which I give to the people of Israel for a possession; 50and die on the mountain which you ascend, and be gathered to your people, as Aaron your brother died in Mount Hor and was gathered to his people; 51because you broke faith with me in the midst of the people of Israel at the waters of Mer'i-bath-ka'desh, in the wilderness of Zin; because you did not revere me as holy in the midst of the people of Israel. 52For you shall see the land before you; but you shall not go there, into the land which I give to the people of Israel." (RSV)


Note that it is Eloah the Elyon that anointed the sons of God as elohim to the nations in this text. After the Messiah had been incarnated and killed and then Judah had been tried over the Forty years from 30 CE to 70 CE and was dispersed among the nations, the Masoretes altered this text to read according to the sons of Israel rather than the sons of God which was what the original texts had revealed and which the texts of the LXX and the DSS reveal even now among the excavations. The alterations to the MT are recorded even now and we are aware of them.  However, they were adopted into the Textus Receptus which is full of these old forgeries and the KJV is corrupted because of them.


The alterations were made to conceal the place of the Elohim of Israel as the incarnated Messiah and to conceal the reality of the salvation of the Gentiles and their addition to the Priesthood of Melchisedek and their place in the First Resurrection as stated in the NT texts developing the OT (cf. Commentary on Hebrews (F58)).


It is this elohim that was granted Israel as his inheritance that is referred to below. The reality is that all those who wish salvation and entry to the sons of God as elohim must enter Israel as the body of Christ as the Church of God and become subject to it and obedient to the Laws of God.  Those who do not are denied the First Resurrection (143A) and sent to the Second Resurrection and the Great White Throne Judgment (No. 143B) and face the Second Death. There is no heaven and hell and those that aspire to that false doctrine and keep Sunday, Christmas and Easter are Gnostic Infidels that worship Baal and the Goddess Easter or Ishtar or Ashtoreth, consort of Baal (cf. The Origins of Christmas and Easter (No.235)).


Council of the Elohim

The elohim of the Host were allotted as leaders of the nations in accordance with Deuteronomy 32:8 and hence the number of the nations were allotted as the Seventy (Two) which also formed the number of the elders of the nation of Israel as the Sanhedrin and then that authority was passed to the church as the Ordination of the Seventy (Hebdomekonta (Duo)) in Luke 10:1, 17. The demons were then made subject to them, and the Sanhedrin and the priesthood lost their authority over them, as we saw with the sons of Sceva, and it passed to the Church.


The Council of the Elohim are referred to in the texts of the Psalms in Psalm 82:1.  It is in this text where we see the Elohim of Israel take his position among the Divine Council (v. 8).  He is given Judgment over the nations and it is here in verse 6 that we see that all mankind and the Council of the Elohim are made sons of the Most High and are subject to death and judgment (v. 7).  They are thus also to be killed and resurrected and judged (cf. Judgment of the Demons (No. 080)). 


This Council of the Elohim rule the world as we see in Psalm 89:5-7 (which refers back to Ps. 82:1; see RSV fn). In 89:8 we see that this entire council is subject to the Lord God of Hosts and also acts by His authority. It is in the service of the Lord our King who is the Holy One of Israel and by his favour that the horn of Israel is exalted (vv. 17-18). It is the service of Messiah as Elohim of Israel that we see salvation (cf. Ps. 45:6-7 and Heb. 1:8-9).  So also it is by his loyalty and righteousness that he is made a priest forever after the order of Melchisdek (cf. Psalm 110 (No. 178) and Psalm 45 (No.177)).


The duality of the nation of Israel in the physical creation and the progression to the spiritual creation is developed from the text in Deuteronomy 33 and then finally in Revelation 7 through the tribes under the apostles and on into the City of God (No. 180).


It is in these two phases that all the nations of the sons of God in Deuteronomy 32 are combined.


Deuteronomy 33:1-29 This is the blessing with which Moses the man of God blessed the children of Israel before his death. 2He said, "The LORD came from Sinai, and dawned from Se'ir upon us; he shone forth from Mount Paran, he came from the ten thousands of holy ones, with flaming fire at his right hand. 3Yea, he loved his people; all those consecrated to him were in his hand; so they followed in thy steps, receiving direction from thee, 4when Moses commanded us a law, as a possession for the assembly of Jacob. 5Thus the LORD became king in Jesh'urun, when the heads of the people were gathered, all the tribes of Israel together. 6"Let Reuben live, and not die, nor let his men be few." 7And this he said of Judah: "Hear, O LORD, the voice of Judah, and bring him in to his people. With thy hands contend for him, and be a help against his adversaries." 8And of Levi he said, "Give to Levi thy Thummim, and thy Urim to thy godly one, whom thou didst test at Massah, with whom thou didst strive at the waters of Mer'ibah; 9who said of his father and mother, `I regard them not'; he disowned his brothers, and ignored his children. For they observed thy word, and kept thy covenant. 10They shall teach Jacob thy ordinances, and Israel thy law; they shall put incense before thee, and whole burnt offering upon thy altar. 11Bless, O LORD, his substance, and accept the work of his hands; crush the loins of his adversaries, of those that hate him, that they rise not again." 12Of Benjamin he said, "The beloved of the LORD, he dwells in safety by him; he encompasses him all the day long, and makes his dwelling between his shoulders." 13And of Joseph he said, "Blessed by the LORD be his land, with the choicest gifts of heaven above, and of the deep that couches beneath, 14with the choicest fruits of the sun, and the rich yield of the months, 15with the finest produce of the ancient mountains, and the abundance of the everlasting hills, 16with the best gifts of the earth and its fulness, and the favor of him that dwelt in the bush. Let these come upon the head of Joseph, and upon the crown of the head of him that is prince among his brothers. 17His firstling bull has majesty, and his horns are the horns of a wild ox; with them he shall push the peoples, all of them, to the ends of the earth; such are the ten thousands of E'phraim, and such are the thousands of Manas'seh." 18And of Zeb'ulun he said, "Rejoice, Zeb'ulun, in your going out; and Is'sachar, in your tents. 19They shall call peoples to their mountain; there they offer right sacrifices; for they suck the affluence of the seas and the hidden treasures of the sand." 20And of Gad he said, "Blessed be he who enlarges Gad! Gad couches like a lion, he tears the arm, and the crown of the head. 21He chose the best of the land for himself, for there a commander's portion was reserved; and he came to the heads of the people, with Israel he executed the commands and just decrees of the LORD." 22And of Dan he said, "Dan is a lion's whelp, that leaps forth from Bashan." 23And of Naph'tali he said, "O Naph'tali, satisfied with favor, and full of the blessing of the LORD, possess the lake and the south." 24And of Asher he said, "Blessed above sons be Asher; let him be the favorite of his brothers, and let him dip his foot in oil. 25Your bars shall be iron and bronze; and as your days, so shall your strength be. 26"There is none like God, O Jesh'urun, who rides through the heavens to your help, and in his majesty through the skies. 27The eternal God is your dwelling place, and underneath are the everlasting arms. And he thrust out the enemy before you, and said, Destroy. 28So Israel dwelt in safety, the fountain of Jacob alone, in a land of grain and wine; yea, his heavens drop down dew. 29Happy are you, O Israel! Who is like you, a people saved by the LORD, the shield of your help, and the sword of your triumph! Your enemies shall come fawning to you; and you shall tread upon their high places."


Note the blessings of the tribes also show that whilst Messiah was of the line of Judah of David through Nathan and Levi through Shimei (Zech. 12:12-14) it was Joseph that was to carry the kingdom and in the last days from Joseph as Ephraim and Dan and that Manasseh was to also stand as a mighty nation. So the lineage was to incorporate both the lines of Judah and Joseph (cf.  From David and the Exilarchs to the House of Windsor (No. 067) and Origin of the Christian Church in Britain (No. 266)).


It was at the First Resurrection that Messiah was to stand and that David was to stand as the head of the household at the head of the elect ruling from Jerusalem under Messiah.                                                                                  

At the advent of the Messiah we are to see the First Resurrection and the heads of the nations are then to hide themselves from the Lamb and the resurrected saints, both of the 144,000 and the Great Multitude. These are the tribes of Israel under the Apostles. All nations are to be grafted on to these twelve tribes as the whole body of Christ which will be the entire human host.


Revelation 7:1-17 After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth, that no wind might blow on earth or sea or against any tree. 2Then I saw another angel ascend from the rising of the sun, with the seal of the living God, and he called with a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm earth and sea, 3saying, "Do not harm the earth or the sea or the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God upon their foreheads." 4And I heard the number of the sealed, a hundred and forty-four thousand sealed, out of every tribe of the sons of Israel, 5twelve thousand sealed out of the tribe of Judah, twelve thousand of the tribe of Reuben, twelve thousand of the tribe of Gad, 6twelve thousand of the tribe of Asher, twelve thousand of the tribe of Naph'tali, twelve thousand of the tribe of Manas'seh, 7twelve thousand of the tribe of Simeon, twelve thousand of the tribe of Levi, twelve thousand of the tribe of Is'sachar, 8twelve thousand of the tribe of Zeb'ulun, twelve thousand of the tribe of Joseph, twelve thousand sealed out of the tribe of Benjamin. 9After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no man could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, 10and crying out with a loud voice, "Salvation belongs to our God who sits upon the throne, and to the Lamb!" 11And all the angels stood round the throne and round the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, 12saying, "Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God for ever and ever! Amen." 13Then one of the elders addressed me, saying, "Who are these, clothed in white robes, and whence have they come?" 14I said to him, "Sir, you know." And he said to me, "These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night within his temple; and he who sits upon the throne will shelter them with his presence. 16They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; the sun shall not strike them, nor any scorching heat.17For the Lamb in the midst of the throne will be their shepherd, and he will guide them to springs of living water; and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."


Note that it is here that we see Joseph as distinct from Manasseh and Dan is grouped with Ephraim as Joseph and Levi takes its position as one of the tribes.  Yet we also see from the inheritance of Dan that he will judge the nations as one of the tribes of Israel. The inheritance takes up when the Messiah and the tribes take their place in ruling the nations from Jerusalem.     


It is after the Millennium and the Second Resurrection that mankind is grouped under the tribes and the Apostles as the City of God (No. 180) that we begin to rule the universe after God joins us here. Anyone who says that they are gentiles and do not have to keep the Laws of God as they are not Jews, does not understand Israel and is denying their place in the Body of Christ and the elect of the First Resurrection and is doomed to face the prospect of the Second Death.


Interference with the Plan

Satan began the interference with the inclusion of man as the elect in the body of Christ and the Church of God by simply persuading the gullible that they did not have to keep the Laws of God and were not bound to the law in order to keep the Covenant which was an outright lie, but most of the lazy and gullible who did not want to obey God took that as a rallying point because they did not want to obey God.  


God gave the Law to Israel through the patriarchs and then definitively to Moses and Aaron through Jesus Christ who was the Elohim of Israel and the Angel of the Presence with Israel at Sinai (Acts chapter 7 and 1Cor. 10:4) (cf. The Pre-existence of Jesus Christ (No. 243)).


The entire law and the structure is tied to the two great commandments and Christ said that on these two hang all the law and the prophets (Mat. 22:40). The Bible repeatedly enforces the Law and the Testimony and those who do not speak according to the Law and the Testimony have no light in them (Isa. 8:20). The Bible states quite clearly that the saints are those who keep the Commandments of God and the Testimony and Faith of Jesus Christ (Rev. 12:17 and 14:12).  It is these people that are persecuted by Satan and the false religions he has established. It is these people that are persecuted under the Fifth Seal and they are killed by the false religious system (cf. The Seven Seals (No. 140)). The deaths of the prophets and the saints of the Churches of God are explained in the texts of General Distribution of the Sabbath Keeping Churches (No. 122) and Role of the Fourth Commandment in the Sabbath-keeping Churches of God (No. 170). The Covenant is critical to being one of the Saints and the Elect of God as we see in the texts on the Law of God (L1). The law stands forever until the entire heavens and earth pass away, because it is governed by the Law that emanates from the Nature of God  (cf. Distinction in the Law (No. 096); Relationship between Salvation by Grace and the Law (No. 082)).  The law must be obeyed so that we can be Consubstantial with the Father (No. 081). It is in this way that we all inherit the Kingdom of God. We are all subject to the Law of God as part of the Covenant and we cannot divorce ourselves from the Law and the Testimony (cf. Christianity and Islam in the Covenant of God (No. 096C) and The Covenant of God (No. 152)).


Anyone that does not keep the Law and the Testimony will die and be relegated to the Second Resurrection at the end of the Millennium. Anyone who denies the Commandments and the Calendar as derived from the Fourth Commandment and does not keep the Seventh Day Sabbath, the New Moons and the Feasts and Holy Days as determined under the Temple from the New Moon Conjunctions under God’s Calendar (No. 156) will be relegated to the Second Resurrection (cf. Calendar and the Moon: Postponements of Festivals (No. 195) and Hillel, Babylonian Intercalations and the Temple Calendar (No. 195C)). They will not be permitted to teach their heresy and will not live to enter the Millennium. They will repent or die (cf. Wars of the End Part IV: End of False Religion (No. 141F)).


One has to baptised as a repentant adult as was Christ and become part of the Body of Christ and enter Spiritual Israel keeping the Commandments of God as laid out in the Laws of God to enter the Kingdom of God in the First Resurrection (cf. Repentance and Baptism (No. 052)). Infant baptism is not acceptable.


Satan has used the Antinomians to convince the world through the false religions that they do not have to obey the Laws of God and that only Jews have to do so, many not understanding that Judah is only one tribe of Israel and that the Rabbis in Judaism are not only not all Levites but the majority are not even Semites. Most have no idea where the tribes of Israel actually are (cf. (No. 212F)).


Satan then topped it off by persuading everyone of the false sects that they have an immortal Soul (No.092) and that when the die they go to heaven instead of being reliant on God for the Resurrections (cf. 143A and 143B). Anyone foolish enough to believe that, and contrary to Scripture, deserves to do it the hard way.


The Antinomian papers and false teachings are as follows:


Satan’s time is about to end. All of his systems are about to be destroyed and the entire Fallen Host will be placed in the Pit of Tartaros. We are now warning you of the time of the end.


The Warning of the Last Days (No. 044) and the sequence of the Wars are all explained in the papers:

Wars of the End Part I: Wars of Amalek (No. 141C);

Wars of the End Part II: 1260 Days of the Witnesses (No. 141D);

Wars of the End Part III: Armageddon and the Vials of the Wrath of God (No. 141E);

Wars of the End Part IIIB: War Against Christ (No. 141E_2);

Wars of the End Part IV: End of False Religion (No. 141F);

Wars of the End Part V: Restoration for the Millennium (No. 141G): and

Wars of the End Part VB: Preparing the Elohim (No. 141H).


The choice is open to everyone. All that is required is to be called by God through the Holy Spirit (No. 117) and to commence the study of the Scriptures, be baptized and keep the Commandments of God and the Law and the Testimony as did Christ and the Apostles.


God will call you in His Own Time in accordance with His Omniscience and according to His Predestination (No. 296).  In other words when God is ready to deal with you at the time that He knows you will succeed He will send the Holy Spirit for you. Only those who are able to keep the Commandments of God and the Faith and Testimony of Jesus Christ will be allowed to enter the millennial system. The disobedient will die and be consigned to the Second Resurrection. It is not God’s will that any flesh should perish (2Pet. 3:9).


Many are called but few are chosen (Mat. 22:14). Those are sorted out before the Millennium.
