What does the Bible call the people who receive the promise through Abraham, who is father of the seed, which is Christ?

Answer: Saints (or elect or chosen).  Christ in you [See Colossians 1:26-27 below–ONLY UNDERSTOOD BY SAINTS] is the Kingdom of God–that Jesus brought in the clouds when He returned bringing His Kingdom during the generation of the disciples. (Sometime around 70 AD–see posts below).  Those receiving sonship–THE PROMISE FROM ABRAHAM AND THE SEED–are adopted as sons, and have the kingdom inside them–Christ in you.  “…Your Kingdom come…in earth as it is in Heaven…

FIRST: look at these two posts to understand the promise and that Jesus REDEEMED us from the curse of the law:

What did Christ redeem us from? And why?

 

THE BLESSING of Abraham is given, through Jesus Christ, so that we may receive the PROMISE of the Spirit through faith. What is that PROMISE?

SECOND: Look at these posts:

Who are the chosen in the Bible?

 

John 15:19: If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

 

Called and chosen; or not chosen: the Bible

Colossians 1:1-2,14,26-27:

PAUL IS WRITING TO SAINTS IN COLOSSIANS:

Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timothy our brother,

To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ which are at Colosse: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: [redeemed from the law]

26 Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to His saints:

27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: [the kingdom of GodChrist in you]


Ephesians 1:5-6:

Having predestinated [Seeforeknowledgebelow] us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will

11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of Him who worketh all things after the counsel of His own will:


Romans 8:29-30:

29 For whom he did foreknow [SEE BELOW], he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called [Jesus said: many are called but few are CHOSEN]: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.

WHAT DOES FOREKNOWLEDGE MEAN? AN EXAMPLE PROVIDES THE ANSWER:

Assume a father (man) is about to die and he has three sons: A, B, and C. He wants to leave all his property and assets to the son who comes to Christ at his funeral. He dies. Immediately after the funeral, son C comes to Christ and sons A and B leave the congregation. Later they open and read the will of the deceased father. His will leaves all property and assets to son C.  The father KNEW HIS SONSthis is FOREKNOWLEDGE. AND PREDESTINATION IS BASED COMPLETELY ON THE FOREKNOWLEDGE OF GOD–HE KNOWS WHAT HIS SONS AND DAUGHTERS WILL DO.

SEE:

Jesus said to His disciples that He was returning in the clouds and bringing His Kingdom–inside us–during the generation of His disciples

 

The law was fulfilled around 70 AD [destruction of Jerusalem and the temple]–Matthew 5; Matthew 24; Mark 13; Luke 21; and other verses

 

Jesus: Some of you who are standing here shall not taste death until you have seen the SON OF MAN returning and bringing the Kingdom of God with power

 

Look at the events stated in Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21 that occur before the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple–THIS HAPPENED IN 70 AD; AND NOT IN THE FUTURE

 

Who is most of the New Testament written to? The answer may surprise you.

 

Why is the gospel taught but the gospel of the Kingdom not taught?

 

Those not in the Kingdom of Heaven shall be cast into the furnace

 

Heaven and earth passed away; and if they did not then the old law still applies

 

Can a person lose his salvation?
