Man’s Will It is said, God would have gathered you, but ye would not. Matthew 23:37 (KJV) O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! John 5:40 (KJV) And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life. Man’s Impotency They could not believe. John 12:39 (KJV) Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias said again, They cannot receive the things of God. 1 Corinthians 2:14 (KJV) But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. Faith All men have not faith. 2 Thessalonians 3:2 (KJV) And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men: for all men have not faith. Faith is given on behalf of Christ, that the sheep would believe. Philippians 1:29 (KJV) For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake; It is given unto us to believe by the power of God. Philippians 2:13 (KJV) For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. If one comes to Christ, they come by faith. John 6:65 (KJV) And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father. Without faith it is impossible to please God. Hebrews 11:6 (KJV) But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. The Gift Of God God Hides These Things From One But Reveals Them To Another Matthew 11:25 (KJV) At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes. God Gives To One But Does Not Give To Another Matthew 13:11 (KJV) He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. If it be of ourselves it is not the gift of God. Ephesians 2:8 (KJV) For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Do you agree, or disagree? If you do not agree with this, what Scripture do you use to show your rebuttal?
