Deu 11:24 Every place whereon the soles of your feet shall tread shall be yours: from the wilderness and Lebanon, from the river, the river Euphrates, even unto the uttermost sea shall your coast be.
Deu 11:25 There shall no man be able to stand before you: for the LORD your God shall lay the fear of you and the dread of you upon all the land that ye shall tread upon, as he hath said unto you.
Deu 11:26 Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse;
Deu 11:27 A blessing, if ye obey the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you this day:
Deu 11:28 And a curse, if ye will not obey the commandments of the LORD your God, but turn aside out of the way which I command you this day, to go after other gods, which ye have not known. [Seeing the commandments with the frontlet of the spirit is a blessing; seeing it with the frontlet of the flesh is a curse. The commandments were created to be both, not one or the other. All is yours.]
Deu 11:29 And it shall come to pass, when the LORD thy God hath brought thee in unto the land whither thou goest to possess it, that thou shalt put the blessing upon mount Gerizim, and the curse upon mount Ebal.
Deu 11:30 Are they not on the other side Jordan, by the way where the sun goeth down, in the land of the Canaanites, which dwell in the champaign over against Gilgal, beside the plains of Moreh?
Deu 11:31 For ye shall pass over Jordan to go in to possess the land which the LORD your God giveth you, and ye shall possess it, and dwell therein.
Deu 11:32 And ye shall observe to do all the statutes and judgments which I set before you this day.

Our first verse describes what God the Father has given us in Christ: "every place whereon the sole of your feet shall tread SHALL BE YOURS." We are the temple, and in that temple, behind the veil, is the Ark, and in that Ark are the two stones of the ten commandments, Aaron's rod that budded and a cup with the manna in it. From over that Ark, where the high priest sprinkles blood, all things in Israel are commanded.

1Co 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
1Co 3:17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
1Co 3:18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.
1Co 3:19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.
1Co 3:20 And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.
1Co 3:21 Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours;
1Co 3:22 Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours;
1Co 3:23 And ye are Christ's; and Christ is God's.

Our first verse tells us that from the wilderness and Lebanon, from the Euphrates, even unto the uttermost sea shall your coast be. This is a literal border for the nation of literal Israel. If that's how we read it and all we get from it, we are of all men most miserable because we have read the word of God, heard the words of Jesus Christ and only saw some historical record and some historical border which people are still fighting over today. This border is our border, and our border has no limitations. This border is our lives and all that will be in our lives, every step we have taken, are taking, and will take in our life-time is this very border: "all are yours." It takes a lifetime, which has a beginning and ending border, to finally take the land. We must walk every step, feel every thorn under our feet, fight every giant, kill all in our border, young and old, man and woman, and then once all in our border has been conquered by the WORD of God...

...The trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord (1Co 15:52-58).

We have learned that we, the elect, were chosen in Christ before the world began. What does that mean to you? What part of you was chosen? Was it only the good things you think you did? Did what He chose in Christ start from when I did my first so-called altar call? Or did it start from when I was baptised? Where was the starting, the border, of where my feet first started leaving an impression in the dirt? According to scripture, it started from before I was ever conceived. It started from the foundation of the world. Thousands of years ago, you and I, who are called the body of Jesus Christ, were elected by God, created by God, chosen and called out of the world to be separate from the world, yet still living in the world, to see the mind of God. This symbolic number which we are is called 144,000. We are those that make up that symbolic number, and in our particular eon we shall come to know how we are known and see ourselves as we are seen. This is what we are told about ourselves;

"And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end" (Luk 1:31-33).

This is the that boundary we will walk:

Psa 139:12 Even darkness, it is not darkening to You, And the night, as the day, is giving light; Darkness is as light."
Psa 139:13 For You Yourself achieved the making of my innermost being; You overshadowed me in my mother's belly.
Psa 139:14 I shall acclaim You, for You are fearfully distinguished; Marvelous are Your works. You have known my soul very thoroughly;"
Psa 139:15 My skeleton was not suppressed from You, When I was made in concealment; I was woven together as in the nether parts of the earth."
Psa 139:16 Your eyes saw my embryo, And my days, all of them were written upon Your scroll; The days were formed When there was not one of them."
Psa 139:17 How precious are Your thoughts to me, O El, How plentiful are their sums:"
Psa 139:18 If I number them, they are more than the sand. I awake, and I am still with You." (CLV)

We are made in secret. If you look around, we are no different than everyone else. However, before we knew who we were, we were known by Him Who created us to be and to do exactly whatever it is we have done, are doing, or will do. Your life and my life is exactly where it is supposed to be from God's standpoint. I am no better or worse than I should be. We have a desire to strive to be better than what we see, but that desire also is from our Creator Who uses that desire to form us. We do not form ourselves. We are formed and molded by each step the sole of the foot of our life touches. There has never been two sets of foot prints in the sand. There has always been one, and that One is Jesus Christ. He walks in you and me. His spirit guides us through each step in this life He has predestined we live.

The footprints story is a nice little feel-good story, and it makes the flesh FEEL loved and that we can walk on our own and when things get tough, then we can lean on our Creator. Stories like that make us FEEL good, but they leave us in a state of reliance upon ourselves; that we have good times where we are walking down the path as our Creator watches us, so in our freewill choices, if we make a MISTAKE we can know He will carry us through it. That is all a Babylonian doctrine based on a LIE. The truth is those steps are ours, we do walk the whole path, the steps are ours, the path is ours, the good the evil, the loneliness, the tiredness, the happiness, the sadness, tears of joy, tears of sorrow - they are all ours.

Psa 119:133 Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.

Psa 37:23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.

1Co 3:21 Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours;
1Co 3:22 Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours;
1Co 3:23 And ye are Christ's; and Christ is God's.

They are exactly what was predestined we walk in, to come to the knowledge of Who is in us, Jesus Christ. He does not walk beside us, He is the One ordering the direction to the feet on where to step. He does not carry me, He makes me walk my border, He is my mind, my heart, my lungs, my blood, my arms, my legs, my feet. He is everything that I am.

Act 17:24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;
Act 17:25 Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;
Act 17:26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;

This is my border, this is your border that has been determined. We are walking this land, patrolling the border and destroying all that is in us by the power of God. We do not use man's wisdom. I do not possess a wisdom, a knowledge independent from the Creator which allows me to make good or evil choices. This is how we defile THE TEMPLE OF GOD; to say we can possess anything outside of His will.

1Co 3:18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.
1Co 3:19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.
1Co 3:20 And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.

1Co 3:17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

How does God destroy us? By destroying the giants we think we are. He guides us into seeing what we are by showing us Who He is. By seeing Who He is, we see what God saw us as before the world began;

Joh 17:5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.

This should be our prayer. If we see ourselves in Christ, then we see ourselves as being created in Christ before the world began, elected to be who we are, in the perfect tense and coming to know God in the aorist tense.

Let's read exactly how we were chosen in Christ and at the same time read about how we are conquering our border. To conquer our border is to know God. We are chosen in Christ without regard to what we were, are or were to become in the flesh.

Joh 17:1 These wordsG5023 spakeG2980 [G5656] (aorist) JesusG2424, andG2532 lifted upG1869 [G5656](aorist) hisG846 eyesG3788 toG1519 heavenG3772, andG2532 saidG2036 [G5627] (aorist), FatherG3962, the hourG5610 is comeG2064 [G5754](perfect); glorifyG1392 [G5657](aorist) thyG4675 SonG5207, thatG2443 thyG4675 SonG5207 alsoG2532 may glorifyG1392 [G5661] (aorist) theeG4571:
Joh 17:2 AsG2531 thou hast givenG1325 [G5656](aorist) himG846 powerG1849 over allG3956 fleshG4561, thatG2443 he should giveG1325 [G5661] (aorist) eternalG166 lifeG2222 toG3739 as many asG3956 G846 thou hast givenG1325 [G5758] (perfect) himG846.
Joh 17:3 AndG1161thisG3778 isG2076 [G5748] (perfect) lifeG2222 eternalG166, thatG2443 they might knowG1097 [G5725] (present) theeG4571 the onlyG3441 trueG228 GodG2316, andG2532 JesusG2424 ChristG5547, whomG3739 thou hast sentG649 [G5656](aorist).

We can see by these verses that if we see ourselves in Christ, then we see ourselves as being created in Christ before the world began, elected to be who we are, in the perfect tense, and coming to know God through Christ in the aorist tense. God has given to Christ in the perfect tense, and Christ gives to us in the aorist tense. To have perfect eonian life is to know God presently and to be given that life presently is in the aorist tense, not relating to what God the Father saw we would do, did do or could do. It was based solely on His choice before the world began, to whom He would reveal Himself in the aorist tense, perfectly.

This process is our border. We should know that to see God in any other light is a lie from the giants in our land and what we are destroying, in the aorist tense. We are in Christ, and Christ is in the Father. Therefore we are knowing the Father through Christ because the Father has predestined we know Him and have age-enduring life. It is not based on what God the Father saw we would do in the future, thereby being based on our actions. He has predestined us to know what we know. Choosing our own walk is a lie and makes God's plan subservient to our actions. That is a lie from the bottomless pit that swallows 100% of all humanity until God the Father opens our eyes. We will stay in blindness unless He opens our eyes and yet still is completing His plan for creation, being blind of it. Praise God He has opened our eyes and has given us eyes to see. We have age-enduring life because we are known of the Father through Christ and for no other reason.
