Your Purpose is His Purpose

What you hear and think you know-

“All things work together for good”

What it really says for you to know-

“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” KJV Romans 8:28

Now that makes things clearer.
Yet once I looked at the scripture a question became obvious.
I see “we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,”
That is “to them who are the called according to his purpose.”

Who “who are the called according to his purpose”?

Well that is pretty simple to answer right. It says at the beginning of the scripture “them that love God,”

If that was the question that became obvious to me then I would lay back down and go to sleep. But anyone that has been awaken in the middle of the night knows that is not how YHVH does it. When He wakes you He wants to show you something in a way that it stands out in your thoughts from then on and every time you see it there is no doubting the answer He has given.

Now I “know that all things work together for good to them that love God,”
and who “who are the called according to his purpose” is answered in the beginning of the scripture, “them that love God”.

But what is “his purpose”
What is according to God’s purpose?
The answer really opens up the whole chapter of Romans eight in the light “to them that love God”.

When the word “purpose” was placed in this scripture you would thing it would have meant just that.

Purpose
noun
1.
the reason for which something exists or is done, made, used, etc.
2.
an intended or desired result; end; aim; goal.
3.
determination; resoluteness.
4.
the subject in hand; the point at issue.
5.
practical result, effect, or advantage: to act to good purpose.

Or the simple translation that is used in other scriptures.

Gk 5124 tou/to touto {too’-to}
Meaning: 1) that (thing), this (thing)

The word used in this verse is not “touto” it is “prothesis”.

Gk 4286 pro,qesij prothesis {proth’-es-is}
Meaning: 1) a setting forth of a thing, placing of it in view, the shewbread 1a) twelve loaves of wheaten bread, corresponding to the number of the tribes of Israel, which loaves were offered to God every Sabbath, and separated into two rows, lay for seven days upon a table placed in the sanctuary or front portion of the tabernacle, and afterwards of the temple 2) a purpose

“The called according to his purpose”, “them that love God,” are represented by the shewbread. Literally the “Bread of Display” or “Bread of the Presence”.

We are “according to his purpose” to be before His presence seven days a week.

We are “according to his purpose” displayed as the Twelve Tribes of Israel.

We are “according to his purpose” of one shewbread yet set apart.

We are “according to his purpose” to be offered to God every Sabbath.

We are “according to his purpose” placed in the tabernacle, as we do according to His Word each year on His Sukkot and afterwards of the Temple where we will dwell with Him in the Kingdom to come.

Now that He has revealed His Purpose I shall bid you Shabbat Shalom and lay down my head.

(For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth;) KJV Romans 9:11

In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will: KJV Ephesians 1:11

According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord: KJV Ephesians 3:11

Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began, KJV 2 Timothy 1:9
