These few who are called and then chosen are God's Elect. They are elected to enter the coming Millennial Kingdom of God as the Bride of Christ, in their new resurrected, immortal, bodies. The choice as to who is God's Elect is according to the grace of God alone and has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with a person's good deeds or personal attributes and characteristics.
The key focus of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation is the story of God's Elect. All people from Adam to this present time fall into one of two categories: God's Elect or Non-Elect. Abel was the first of God's Elect mentioned in the Bible.
All of God's Elect have a covering of God's Righteousness through God given faith, such as Noah, Abraham, Lot, Moses, King David and others mentioned in the Bible. None of God's Elect were righteous by themselves. All of God's Elect mentioned in the Bible sinned in a number of ways, as God's Elect are capable of doing today. However, all of God's Elect are counted as Righteous through God given faith.
Only a remnant of Israel has been chosen and elected before they die and they, along with God's Elect from the Gentile nations, will be in the First Resurrection. These together will form the Bride of Christ. They will be raised up to meet Jesus Christ when He returns to earth in all His glory as King of kings.
God has purposely blinded Israel except for the remnant of His Elect. God must first call all of His Elect from the Gentile nations before He will remove the blindness from the rest of the Israelites. The Bible is very clear that ultimately God will save ALL Israel. (Romans 11:26)
The important question we need to answer is why God calls and saves only a few people in this life, but allows the overwhelming majority to die as unbelievers.
The simple glorious truth about God's Plan is that, after Jesus Christ marries His Bride, the Firstfruits, there will be the Great Harvest of more fruits to follow, birthed from this marriage. The union of the Bride of Christ with Jesus Christ will bear multiple billions of spiritual children born into the Eternal Kingdom of God of the New Heaven and the New Earth. These spiritual children are none other than the rest of humanity who will rise in the Second Resurrection. We give details of this wonderful revelation in Chapter 9 'The Truth of God's Elect - The Bride of Christ' and Chapter 12 'The Great White Throne Judgement'.
