As I was reading the Bible tonight, a thought came to me. I was reading about Paul "chosen out of due time"....And it occurred to me that there were 11 saved apostles whom christ called. Originally there were twelve, but one fell away. Later, Paul was called after Christ's death and resurrection.
Could another possible reason for so many of us seeing the 11's be that we are called by Christ and saved (as were those 11 apostles?). The apostle called out of time....Could that be the tribulation saints?
Just a thought.
