A believer & follower of the Lord Jesus Christ by God's sovereign grace alone. I did Not choose nor enable God to save me. God saved me by his own unconditional Sovereign will. Before salvation, we are Spiritually dead sinners, hopelessly in bondage to our nature and UNABLE to choose or even desire God. We are enemies of Christ and Only an unprompted act of God alone can change us! Scriptures teach that The Father Chose us, The Son died for us and the Holy Spirit regenerates (changes) us! I hold to the Pure message of the Old & New Testaments; the Orthodox biblical teachings of Sovereign grace: (T.U.L.I.P) T=Total Depravity (1Cor 2:14) U=Unconditional Election (Rom 9:10-21) L=Limited Atonement (John 17:6-12) I=Irresistable Grace (John 6:44) P=Perserverence of the Saints. (Phil 1:6) Extensive Scripture Proofs on T.U.L.I.P. http://scripturetruths5.tripod.com/fpc.html Salvation is accomplished by the almighty power of the triune God. The Father chose a people, the Son died for them, the Holy Spirit makes Christ's death effective by bringing the elect to faith and repentance, thereby causing them to willingly obey the Gospel. The entire process (election, redemption, regeneration) is the work of God and is by grace alone. Thus God, not man, determines who will be the recipients of the gift of salvation. God had unconditionally CHOSE and PREDESTINATED a people out of the world to salvation. The rest he passed over. Salvation is a gift to God's elect only. The biblical order of salvation is as follows: 1) Unconditional Election/Predestination of Sinners by God 2) The Call: Outward call by men & Inward call by God the Holy Spirit. Only the elect will receive the inward call. 3) Regeneration: Nature of the Elect sinner is changed by God the Holy Spirit. 4) Conversion: Faith & Repentance are now experienced by the Elect Sinner. 5) Justification: The Elect sinner is justified in God's eyes from the penalty of sin through Christ. 6) Adoption: The Elect sinner is adopted into the family of heaven. 7) Sanctification: The Elect sinner undergoes a lifetime of change, conforming more & more to Christ. 8) Perserverence: The Elect sinner cannot/will not lose salvation. 9) Death: Soul leaves body to be with Christ 10) Glorification: new body is received at Christ's coming Ephesian 1:4-5 According as he hath CHOSEN us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: Having PREDESTINED us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will". Deut 7:6 For you are an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath CHOSEN you to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth 2Th 2:13 ..because God hath from the beginning CHOSEN you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth Col 3:12 Put on therefore, as the ELECT of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; Titus 1:1 ..According to the faith of GOD"S ELECT, and the acknowledging of the truth which is after godliness; 1Pet 2:9 But ye are a CHOSEN generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light Eph 1:11 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..
