Please witness 5 major examples: 1 – In the OT, God personally revealed spiritual truth only to His prophets, not to the others. 2 -- God must provide a small seed of faith for one to believe the saving gospel of Jesus Christ. 3 -- Jesus spoke in parables so only those with “ears to hear” spiritual truth would believe it. 4 -- Many supposed born-again Christians just do not have “eyes to see” the Trinity Scriptures. 5 -- Many born-again Christians just do not have the revelation that the baptism with the Holy Spirit and the 9 spiritual gifts are still for today. Explanatory note for point 2 above: God had His reasons for choosing whom He would elect before the foundation of the world. IMO, there are 2 major types of born-again believers: -- elect … guaranteed to be saved ... overcomers who co-operate with the Holy Spirit in being sanctified. -- non-elect … non-overcomers who do not co-operate with being sanctified, and will not be saved. I believe this way because God’s many NT warnings are to believers (not to unbelievers), and I do not believe they are lies or empty threats just to frighten believers into sanctification. I am interested in your comments on these difficult topics. .
