Kingdom of Priests: The King Chooses His People

The King Chooses His People

The King Chooses His People

In the democracies of the world, the people choose their leader. The candidate has the campaigning, the balloting, the politicking, to conduct. Half the country is for one candidate or party and the other half for another.

This is so if the country is not corrupt (of course). Unfortunately, it happens often where two thugs run for office or one thug bullies opponents not to run and if they run anyway, they’ll be threatened with death.

In God’s Kingdom, kangaroo elections don’t exist, neither do regular elections because the King chooses His people. People often wonder why God chose to begin the rebuild of the earthly colonization with the house of Jacob.

Jesus Did The Same In the Flesh

It is because He is the King and Owner of the earth and worlds; and He can do as He pleases. There were plenty of nations the Lord could have chosen to begin His Church or Kingdom with. However, God chose the house of Jacob to adopt as Israel to be a people near to Him (Deuteronomy 7:6, Isaiah 44:1).

If we check to see if Jesus said anything different when He came to His own in the flesh, we will understand the King does not change. See John chapter 15:

16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

Emphasis mine

Jesus says that He has chosen them (Israel), not they Him. He chose us and gave us the choice to chose Him back. We can choose life or death; but He first chose us because a King chooses His people.

God Chose Adam, Noah, and Abraham

The people do not choose the king. This isn’t subject only to the New Testament or Covenant. Remember He chose mankind beginning with Adam, Noah, Abraham, and the children of Israel. This is the King’s operative mode since He chose and called out the people from Egypt.

In Deuteronomy chapter 7, the Lord God says Israel are a holy people to Him and He has chosen them to be a special people to Himself, above all people that are on the face of the earth.

7 The Lord did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people:

8 But because the Lord loved you, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath the Lord brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.

The children of Jacob did not choose the Lord, the Lord chose them. A righteous King does this because He loves the people, and gives His people the opportunity to be ruled and governed by Him. They can choose death as Adam and the house of Jacob chose, but the King makes the first choosing.
