Who are the chosen people ?

There are people on this earth who are chosen by God and blessed by God. For it is written « Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:  4 According as he has chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: 5 Having predestinated us to the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,  6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he has made us accepted in the beloved.  7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; » Ephesians 4.3-7. God has chosen them before the foundation of the world, that they would be holy and without blame before him in love, having predestinated them to the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself. « Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. » Romans 8.30. 1 Thessalonians 2.13 says that those chosen people are thankful always to God because God has from the beginning chosen us to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth. And the apostle Peter wrote that we are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that we should show forth the praises of him who has called us out of darkness into his marvelous light;  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. 1 Peter 2:4. We are the people of God, a chosen generation who believe in the finished work of our Lord Jesus-Christ on the cross by his sacrifice as the slaughtered Lamb for the remissions of our sins and by resurrecting us through his resurrection. It is also written that those who hate our Lord Jesus-Christ, his work and his chosen ones, shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful. Our Lord Jesus-Christ told the jews who thought wrongly that they were the chosen that « the last [the gentiles] shall be first, and the first [the jews] last: for many be called, but few chosen ». Now those chosen people are all those [gentils and jews] who believe in the gospel of Jesus-Christ, in his finished work on the cross for our salvation. How can we then know we are among the chosen people, the people of God? You can know that you are among the chosen people if you believe or you are willing today to believe in the gospel of Jesus-Christ, you believe He is the Messiah and that He came 2000 years ago, He died on the cross and resurrected the third day. It is written that  » if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved. 10 For with the heart man believes to righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made to salvation. 11 For the scripture said, Whoever believes on him shall not be ashamed. 12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich to all that call on him.  13 For whoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Those who are not chosen do not believe in the gospel of Jesus-Christ and the wrath of God is upon them. For « He that believes on the Son has everlasting life: and he that believes not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God stays on him. » John 3.36.

Maranatha! Come Lord Jesus-Christ!
