Ephesians 1:9-11
God has now revealed to us his mysterious plan regarding Christ, a plan to fulfill his own good pleasure. And this is the plan: At the right time he will bring everything together under the authority of Christóeverything in heaven and on earth. Furthermore, because we are united with Christ, we have received an inheritance from God, for he chose us in advance, and he makes everything work out according to his plan.

What a blessing to be aware that I have been chosen since the before the foundation of the world to be alive at this moment in timeóthis exact time in Godís plan. I often think about why now? Why wasnít I born during the Wild, Wild West? Why wasnít I born in Ireland, or Italy or even Malaysia? It was because I, and every one of you have been selected to be alive at this time in the universe! AWESOME! We are a privileged generation! We are the generation who can look back on Christ, and receive all the benefit of the fulfillment of hundreds of prophecies that our forebears could only hope to see!

Everything is Christís! We are His, and in that truth, we have such a holy purpose! We are included in the plansólet in on Godís ideas! What a blessed an exciting life!

The Message says in verses 7-12:
Because of the sacrifice of the Messiah, his blood poured out on the altar of the Cross, we're a free peopleófree of penalties and punishments chalked up by all our misdeeds. And not just barely free, either. Abundantly free! He thought of everything, provided for everything we could possibly need, letting us in on the plans he took such delight in making. He set it all out before us in Christ, a long-range plan in which everything would be brought together and summed up in him, everything in deepest heaven, everything on planet earth. It's in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ and got our hopes up, he had his eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose he is working out in everything and everyone.

How can any one of us ever sigh and say, ďIím bored.Ē? What a joy and comfort to know that God handpicked us to become His sons and daughters! What a good and excellent God! What privileged children we are. Letís not be spoiled brats, but recognize the value God has placed on us by His Sonís sacrifice out of love for each individual, and enlist in His army full force. Get busy for God! Letís serve Him in our corner of the world, and letís seek to please Our Father.

I have thought about this since I was so small. I remember being around 5 or so and seeing a movie on the Victorian times...and crying, saying, why wasn't I born then? I remember as a teen feeling the same way....why this time? Why? I have talked to so many people regarding this topic. What is it that God wants from us during THIS time....and up until several years ago, when pieces of the puzzle started coming together, I was clueless.

Sometimes I think, for whatever reason our Father has, that He has chosen this time, for these souls...to prepare them...is it for war? Is it for a reunion? Is it to complete a souls journey? For, we are living in a time, unlike any other. Each century carried its uniqueness, its troubles, its hardships, its wars....many thought it was time for the second coming due to the epidemics, the wars, the disasters....each had people preparing, just as we are preparing. I imagine...what would people think of the world today? There were no cars, no airplanes, no motorcycles, bicycles, no airconditioning, no blowdryers, refridgerators, electricity as we know it. Houses weren't overly furnished, or filled with cheap plastic toys....oh what a material bunch we are...imagine someone traveling from the past into our present.....would they think they were in heaven or hell?

AND, would they think....for certain, the time is at hand!!!

Yes, we are hand picked for this time. Are we stronger? Weaker? More lost? I believe deep inside my core that God has woken people up for a grand reason. Today, I am not the same woman I was even 5 years ago. 5 years ago, when the Lord overloaded me with overwhelming information....which He continues to do on a regular basis. It is enough to make one feel mad and ready to leap....OR it is enough to awaken an intense fire for Him, to know that we....WE...live in such a time as this with such chaos on the planet...living under such evil influences, so easy to turn us off the path of righteousness and yet we press on....trying, pleading to be led down the true path to save ourselves from eternal damnation. Truly, testing our faith....through every thing we watch, see, deal with....mass temptations at every corner...and here we are, Praising HIM, doing works for HIM to glorify HIM! Yes, making mistakes, yes, falling many times, but though we fall, we pick ourselves up with HIS help to prepare ourselves, our families, our neighbors for what will be....our future.

Yes, chosen for this time. Isn't it amazing! It awakens the warrior spirit in me. I may be tired of the demons running rampant around the earth, but I am not afraid of them anymore....annoyed...yes...afraid...No Longer, for He that is within me is greater than he that is in the world! Praise be to God to be alive during this chaos. Where Martyrs for Christ are dying daily. Our true saints...HIS true Saints! So many centuries of Saints....the legacy continues on for HIM!!!!
