I think it does, but even though they were 'chosen by grace' - still... it seems there is a requirement... "who have not bowed the knee to Baal."Seems to me that it is linked to 'a remnant chosen by grace' - doesn't that imply salvation? I'm open to being persuaded, but I'd need a bit more than this to push me over the line.
there is scripture to support this I would say, but if only Israel is the elect, then only Israel will be 'raptured' I know this opens a can of worms about rapture, that's not my intent here, I want to focus on the 'elect'.Israel was elect. They alone had access to the truth about the true God.
This does cause a problem.And God, fortunately, picks a few out. And so they get held by default, or you have double predestination, where God makes deliberate choices on both.

A Spirit-filled Christian can measure or examine themselves by believing and acting on all of the commandments laid out in the word of God - the gospels, Acts and the epistles to the churches.
The fundamentals must be Mark 16:15-20 followed by the examples in Acts and then in accord with 1Corinthians 12 and 14.
A true Pentecostal Christian of course prays in tongues unto God > praying in the Spirit.
