Superiority? No..., not for any one of us.

There are Chosen Ones who might nullify Eph.2:20; 1Cor.14:32; 12:18; Amos 3:7 and Num.12:6.
Their motive is unfounded.

To these I offer the following scriptural thoughts...

To know Christ's voice is to recognize the sound of truth and the Word of God (John10:27). The Pharisees were deaf to this (John8:27,43,47; Eze.3:4,5,6,7; Matt.13:14; Acts 28:26,27) due to having the same desires as Satan (John8:40,41,44; 1John3:12).

The present Temple of God's spirit is also in Covenant with God (just like the Pharisees of the past), and it's body of Christ, is arranged according to the Will of God (1Cor.12:11,18,19). The Pharisees refused to recognize the cornerstone of that Temple City (Eph.2:20; Luke20:17,18,19).
ALL members of the anointed body, must also discern the body's structure (1Cor.11:28,29,31; 1Cor.12:18,28), including it's foundation
(Eph.2:20; 1Cor.3:10; 15:9,10; Acts4:20; Rev.21:14; Luke11:49; Rev.18:20),
lest they sin against God's own arrangement, due to pride...the same leaven as the Pharisees (Mark8:15,21; 9:33,34; Luke9:46; 1Cor.8:2; Gal.6:3; 2Cor.11:12).

Those who truly abide in Love, rejoice in the mercies and kindness expressed to their brothers (1John3:14; 1Cor.12:26). These realize that any honor shown according to the justice of God, is shown to those who previously lacked honor especially, in order that there should be no superiority, imbalance, or division within the body (1Cor.12:24,25,26; Matt.20:26,27; 1Cor.4:7; Rom.12:3,6; 1Pet.4:10; Matt.20:16; 23:12).
If God chooses the most despised to be shown an equalizing amount of mercy, of what concern is that to anyone? (1Cor.1:26,27,28,29,30; Matt.20:13,14,15) All of us are undeserving worthless slaves, who perform our assigned place out of obligation, not out of superiority (Rom.4:4; Luke17:10; 1Cor.4:7; Luke12:48).
If God does not give all the honor to those who already have honor,
and choose to neglect and further debase those who have been totally despised and cast off;
...why would those who also depend on God's undeserved mercy, raise objection to others being lifted up from such despair, to now be compensated and made equal to them,
...unless their eye were evil?

There is an equalizing according to God's justice. None should be greedy for more at the loss to his brother, or even lower, a sister.
Those who truly grasp Christ's voice of truth being proclaimed throughout the above scriptural words of God, recognize, accept, and obey the justice and mercy of God found within those words (John10:27).
This is the voice of the Good Shepherd, who cares for ALL his 144000 sheep....not just the ones who envy what they do not understand.
(Gal.6:3,4; Matt.25:20,22; 1Cor.3:8; Luke12:48 B).
The parts of Christ's Body who are accustomed to being treated with greater honor, according to their self-estimation, are the very ones who must learn humility. The parts of Christ's Body who are accustomed to being dominated, and as being discarded as nothing, are the very ones who must learn to accept their responsibility as priest, according to their God-given assignment, despite the objections and ridicule which surround them, which they were previously accustomed to yield to. (2Cor.11:20; 1Pet.4:10; Rom.12:6,7,8; 1Cor.14:32,33,29; Rev.22:6; Amos3:7; Eph.2:20,21; Heb.11:10)
Those who object to God's justice and demand more for themselves,
really do not understand what they are asking for (Matt.17:1,3; Mark10:37,38,39,40,41,42,43,44,45),
as such positions are not what they suppose them to be.
