(Subtitle: A Pattern Of Patience.)
CHRIST JESUS came into the world to save sinners.
He did not come into the world to make an offer to save. He came to save.
He did not come to make a deal, if you do this, then, I’ll do that.
He did not come to merely make salvation possible. – No, He came into the world to save sinners.
He did not come to TRY to save. He came to save.
He did not come into the world to lose sinners. No, He came to save sinners.
If He came into the world to save sinners and fails to save sinners, then He is a failure.
Your beloved devotion to the mythology of freewill keeps you from believing this PLAIN STATEMENT: CHRIST JESUS came into the world to save sinners.
The mythology of freewill glorifies man’s abilities.
Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners. And guess what — He even saved the worst sinner on Earth. (Saul, who became Paul.) As a pattern of patience.
I Timothy, Chapter One:
15 Faithful is the saying, and worthy of all welcome, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, foremost of whom am I. 16 But therefore was I shown mercy, that in me, the foremost, Jesus Christ should be displaying all His patience, for a pattern of those who are about to be believing on Him for life eonian.
Patterns reveal how the thing will turn out, right? Like sewing patterns are important, right?
Well, when God saved the worst of sinners, it revealed a pattern of things to come.
If God can patiently save the worst, then obviously God is the savor of all…
Because Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners. What a glorious purpose of God, huh?
It is not of him that willeth, it is of God the merciful, for Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners. After all, God is the savior of all, especially believers.
And this is eonian life, to know Him.
Known unto God are all His works.
And All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
… God Who makes the world and all that is in it, He, the Lord inherent of heaven and earth, is not dwelling in temples made by hands,
neither is He attended by human hands, as if requiring anything, since He Himself gives to all life and breath and all.
…, not far from each one of us is He inherent, for in Him we are living and moving and are.
He assigns a day in which He is about to be judging the inhabited earth in righteousness by the Man Whom He specifies, tendering faith to all, raising Him from among the dead.
The work on the cross is a snare (GK: Skandal) because it accomplishes everything.
It’s not like He requires anything.
Freewillers suggest God requires a little help from the stubborn sinner. But Acts 17:25 says He is not attended by human hands, as if requiring anything.
He came into the world to save sinners. He doesn’t need any help to complete His purpose.
