It is not merely a command that implies response-ability and denies the concept of total inability... 1. It's RESPONSIBILITY that implies the ABILITY to RESPOND. 2. It's an APPEAL to be reconciled that implies the ability to respond so as to be reconciled. 3. It's an expression of God desire and longing to gather/save even the unwilling that implies their ability to become willing. 4. It's God's expression of PATIENCE and LONG-SUFFERING that implies he is waiting on something from us, not Himself. 5. It's the biblical call for ALL, EVERYONE, ANYONE, WHOSOEVER to come and find healing that implies all, everyone, whosoever and anyone could. 6. It's the fulfillment of all God's commands (law) by Christ that implies anyone may enter through Him, though they are totally unable to do so by any other means. 7. It's the biblical accounts where it speaks of the vessels need to 'cleanse themselves' (2 Tim 2:21..below) that implies synergism. 8. It's the biblical accounts where it speaks of the need to turn to Christ in order to have the veil removed (2 Cor. 2:16, below) that implies synergism. 2 Tim. 2:20 In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some are for noble purposes and some for ignoble. 21 If a man cleanses himself from the latter, he will be an instrument for noble purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work. 2 Cor. 2:16 But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.
