“And the LORD called unto Moses, and spake unto him out of the tabernacle of the congregation…”– Leviticus 1:1
Yahovah God called unto Moses out of the Tabernacle. No longer was He speaking from the top of Mt. Sinai in thunder and lightning, as when He gave the commandments. Now He calls in a new way to Moses and His people – from the Tabernacle, the way of reconciliation.
And the LORD “called”.
His call yesterday and today is for those who wish to be reconciled to Him. We, the people of God – the Body of Christ, are a called-out body (ekklesia), and we are His “elect people”, because when God called us, we responded.
“For the Jews require a sign, and the Gentiles seek after wisdom: but we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Gentiles foolishness; but unto them which are called, both Jews and Gentiles, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God” – 1 Cor. 1:22-24.
The “Called” are not those who simply hear.
Many people have heard about Jesus around the world, but few have actually heeded the good news of the Gospel. Only those who have heard and responded are His elect people. It’s not enough to hear God’s message, you must also be willing to respond by repenting of your sins and committing your life to Jesus Christ to become one of His chosen people.
Is God calling you today? Have you heard and responded? We encourage you listen and obey. Click here to learn more about God’s plan of salvation.

REAL JESUS MINISTRIES
“God is a person, and in the deep of His mighty nature He thinks, wills, enjoys, feels, loves, desires and suffers as any other person may, In making Himself known to us He stays by the familar pattern of personality. He communicates with us through the avenues of our minds, our wills and emotions. The continuous and un-embarrased interchange of love and thought between God and the soul of the redeemed man is the throbbing heart of New Testament religion.”
– A. W. Tozer
COMMENT from Pastor Luis: “God is indeed a Spirit. And those that worship Him must worship in spirit and in truth. However, He still thinks, wills, enjoys, feels, loves, desires, and even suffers as a person would.”
