All Praise And Glory To His Name!

I am not a Calvanist for those of you who say so .....I am a Christian!
I am of NO denomination.
I belong to Christ alone and follow Him, and NOT the abominable doctrines of man.

Contrary to what some here may say, when you take your last breath, or when Christ comes on the last day, if you are not then saved, then you will remain in your sins and there will be no more hope for salvation, for "it is appointed unto men once to die, and after this the judgment" ~ Hebrews 9:27 ~

God tells us very clearly that He did not desire to save every living soul.
The evidence from within His Word about this is overwhelming.

From Genesis to Revelation is the story of God's salvation plan!

Here are just a few of the teachings of the Bible that very clearly show that God chooses those whom He will save and ONLY those whom He will save.

"All that the Father giveth Me will come to Me.."
NOT all men, but ALL that the Father hath given Me!

"No man can come unto me ( says Jesus ) unless the Father draws him"
Also "No man cometh to the Father but by me"

Only God can draw, and will draw someone to Himself.

When He says " I will draw ALL men unto myself" He is not saying that He will draw every single person on the face of the earth to Himself, but people from ALL nations! This verse has been so misunderstood and taught.

Here it is in one place ( among others ) saying that He is NOT giving this particular group of people ears to hear that they might believe and be saved:
Jesus said in Matthew 13 :13-15:

" Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esai'as, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:
For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

If God wanted to save these He speaks about, He would have done so.
He did not because they were not of His fold.
They were never chosen of God.

God has ALWAYS had a "remnant".....and just a remnant who are his throughout history, because that is His will.

Notice the emphasis on the word "I" in the verses below:

Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.
A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them. ~ Ezekial 36:24-26 ~

This work in those He will save is ALL of God.

Once someone comes to where they know they are truly sinful, and now saved, they will see the hand of God was that which saved and nothing that they did...NOTHING!
All our works are as filthy rags in His sight.

Salvation is of the Lord ~ Jonah 2:9~

"Thou shalt call His name Jesus, for He will save HIS people from their sins"
~ Matthew 1:21 ~

Not every living person, but ... He shall save HIS people from their sins!

"We love Him BECAUSE He first loved us" ~ 1 John 4:19 ~
That, is the reason why we love Him and serve Him.
He put that love in us.
He chose us ( John 15:16 ) and not the other way around!

Jesus also said in the garden " I pray NOT for the world, but for those whom Thou gavest Me" ~ John 17:9 ~

In Romans 9 we read that God will have mercy on whom He will have mercy and He will harden whom He will harden.

We also read in that same chapter: "Jacob I love and Esau have I hated."

Is there then unrighteousness with God? God forbid!

There are many, both unbelievers and so called believers alike who will not accept the truth that the entire salvation plan is entirely of God even before He created anything, that it was already put in place before the foundations of the world.

His creation of all things including time, are to fulfill His perfect plan and to have a people for Himself. God's will NEVER, EVER fails!

We who are the chosen of God are the "planting of God"

He planted us, not we ourselves! How foolish would that be to think that we planted ourselves and watered ourselves and grew according to our works!

All who are not His are thorns and weeds to be plucked up by the root and burned!

Nobody who becomes saved had anything to do to get themselves saved.
It is all the work of God, and to deny that is to deny the very Word of God and the perfect sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

If God's will ( as some say ) was to have every person who ever lived to be saved, then He failed miserably and His will cannot be done and therefore is not omnipotent as He claims in His Word.

But this is not the case. God's will is ALWAYS carried out according to His purpose and at His perfect time and fulfilled to the very letter.

One of the best proofs of this truth is the person named Lazarus whom we read about in John chapter 11.

Lazarus was in dead and buried in the grave for 4 days when Jesus came to that place in Bethany.
Jesus called him out of the grave "Lazarus, come forth".

Did Lazarus decide that he would come out of the grave?

Of course not, he was dead.

Jesus had to give him ears to hear and commanded him to come out.
It was ALL the work of the very Word of God.
As with Lazarus, so too with all who become saved.

We are all DEAD in our sins, and only those whom God calls out of their grave of sins will come to Him and believe.
All others will remain in their grave of sins and many of those believing just as the Pharisees that all is well with their souls.

Jesus said "You will be hated of all men, they hated Me and therefore they will also hate you"
That is why when a true child of God speaks the truth, he is hated but rejoices in that so did they to the prophets of old also.

You can down-vote this a zillion times, it matters not a whit to me, and you may refute this all you will and name call, but it will never change the truth of God's perfect salvation plan that is soon to be completely fulfilled.

Believe what you will, but if you deny the perfect work of salvation by God alone, and want to believe that YOU did something to help get yourself saved, then you are attempting to contribute in part to your salvation and thereby remain in your sins.

It is my sincere desire that many here who are unsure, will call upon the name of the Lord for salvation, and those that do, will come to know that this magnificent work was all of the mercy and love of God.

Speaking the Truth, in Love, I am now done with this matter

Peace
