Does God Respect Our Flesh?

I wanted to take the time to go over a verse which is misconstrued by many people.

Rom 2:11 For there is no respect of persons with God.

God does not now, nor has He ever, respected our flesh. He does not make decisions that have been predestined from the foundation of the world based upon a human’s stature in life. He makes one a king and another one a slave, and He never asks for your or my voice in the matter. He does not do the exact same thing for all people in all circumstances. He may heal one from a disease and not another. He may give one perfect health and not another. He does what He wants in the kingdoms of men.

Dan 4:17 This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men.

Exo 4:11 And the LORD said unto him, Who hath made man’s mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the LORD?

This is the Creator of all things, and this gives light to just another problem with the false doctrine which states that God is a respecter of persons, and because He is sending people to the lake of fire, He must send everyone or He is a respecter of persons. Does God respect the flesh at all? Does God consider the fairness of some going to the lake of fire and not others?

If that’s the case then why didn’t He have all of Joseph’s brothers go into literal slavery, all to literal prison, and all become literal kings in Egypt. Why were the twelve Apostles chosen to be Apostles? Why was Judas chosen to be sacrificed? If all must be the same, then God is a respecter of the flesh, and He is not.

This spirit that tries to put God into a box is called globalism. It is a spirit that has been around for thousands of years. It is the same spirit that moved Korah, and it is the same spirit that is moving in our generation today, which believes God created all equal, and therefore He is bound to treat all equally in the same manner. Globalism does not believe in borders and believes that all people should be able to travel freely to any part of the world for their good with no nations, just global states that are governed by a globalist government; the ultimate nanny government. However, in God’s kingdom there are borders.

Num 34:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
Num 34:2 Command the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye come into the land of Canaan; (this is the land that shall fall unto you for an inheritance, even the land of Canaan with the coasts thereof:)
Num 34:3 Then your south quarter shall be from the wilderness of Zin along by the coast of Edom, and your south border shall be the outmost coast of the salt sea eastward:
Num 34:4 And your border shall turn from the south to the ascent of Akrabbim, and pass on to Zin: and the going forth thereof shall be from the south to Kadeshbarnea, and shall go on to Hazaraddar, and pass on to Azmon:
Num 34:5 And the border shall fetch a compass from Azmon unto the river of Egypt, and the goings out of it shall be at the sea.
Num 34:6 And as for the western border, ye shall even have the great sea for a border: this shall be your west border.
Num 34:7 And this shall be your north border: from the great sea ye shall point out for you mount Hor:
Num 34:8 From mount Hor ye shall point out your border unto the entrance of Hamath; and the goings forth of the border shall be to Zedad:
Num 34:9 And the border shall go on to Ziphron, and the goings out of it shall be at Hazarenan: this shall be your north border.
Num 34:10 And ye shall point out your east border from Hazarenan to Shepham:
Num 34:11 And the coast shall go down from Shepham to Riblah, on the east side of Ain; and the border shall descend, and shall reach unto the side of the sea of Chinnereth eastward:
Num 34:12 And the border shall go down to Jordan, and the goings out of it shall be at the salt sea: this shall be your land with the coasts thereof round about.

This is the land which The LORD divided to Israel by borders. We should take this literal word and see it spiritually by saying;

2Jn 1:10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:
2Jn 1:11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

Our spiritual house has borders, limits, which we should guard against those who would try to sway us with fleshly love and a globalist spirit that says God respects our flesh. God does not respect our flesh, and He is not a respecter of persons when it comes to whom He reveals Himself. It does not matter if you are a king or a slave. If God has predestined your flesh is a slave to a literal man but your spirit is free to God, then so be it. If He has predestined that a man be a king in the flesh but a slave in the spirit, then so be it. It is never based on the stature in life of the individual.

Eph 6:5 Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ;
Eph 6:6 Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;
Eph 6:7 With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men:
Eph 6:8 Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free.
Eph 6:9 And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with him.

The point to this article is to make sure no one is confused when I say that God is no respecter of persons. We must also KNOW that we are a PECULIAR people, predestined to be the Elect of God.

Exo 19:5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:
Exo 19:6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.

Deu 14:2 For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God, and the LORD hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth.

1Pe 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
1Pe 2:10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.

Eph 1:4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
Eph 1:5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,

We are a special people to God ABOVE ALL PEOPLE OF THE WORLD who have ever lived or ever will live. There is nothing about us in the flesh that made us special, but only because He created us in Christ before the foundation of the world. Now we are told by this false globalist spirit that we are not special to God, but we must also go through the lake of fire like everyone else so that there is no chance we could get high-minded!!!

If some want to take another’s crown, which must not be a crown, and throw it to the ground, cast it off to appease the masses, then I say, “Praise God that He has blinded you and exposed you for the spirit which is leading you.” Praise God that He has chosen not to be a respecter of persons and has blinded you from the truth!!

If some want to live in a globalist society of equality in the lake of fire so that none are offended, then all I can say is that from the foundation of the world such were ordained for that purpose, to be sacrificed for our learning. I know that in my flesh I am at the bottom of the barrel of mankind. I know the depths of sin from which I have been released and am being released daily. I know that God has spared me who, in the flesh, am worse than all of you put together in my own eyes. I also know that I was predestined before the world began to be a king and a priest in my LORD’S kingdom, and no one can snatch me from my LORD’S hands, NOT EVEN MY FLESH and all the hoards of the devil.

Rom 8:33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth.
Rom 8:34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
Rom 8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
Rom 8:36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
Rom 8:37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
Rom 8:38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
Rom 8:39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

These are promises that only the elect can claim. Did you hear that? These are promises that only the elect can claim in their eon (Greek: lion). We must all ask ourselves, “Do we believe these promises?” If we do, then we will not be hurt of the second death, WHICH IS THE LAKE OF FIRE.

Rev 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
Rev 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Christ is the book, and we have read in Ephesians 1:4 that we were chosen in Him BEFORE the foundation of the world, PREDESTINED to be adopted by Jesus Christ. If you believe that you must experience the lake of fire, then you do not believe these promises, and you MUST BE HURT OF THE SECOND DEATH…PERIOD.

God has chosen me to believe these promises no matter what my flesh throws at me daily, no matter what the enemy says to me, no matter what he whispers to me and reminds me of what I have done in the flesh. I still believe because Christ is my faith that moves me onward. I can claim nothing as from me or by me but Christ and Him crucified. I hope and pray you are not led away from these promises because God is no respecter of persons, and no matter who you are in the flesh, no matter how much money you have or no matter how good you are with money, it has only been used to blind you further. We are chosen because God has chosen us and created us to be a peculiar people to Himself…period.
