The Adventure of Reading the King James Bible Chapter 19


Slide 1

 

Slide 2

Whosoever/whomsoever simply means anybody at all, no matter who.

It is totally open to include anyone.

Whosoever will – anybody at all that is willing. Willing to take the water of life that is freely given to those who put their trust in and follow the Lamb who is slain.

Revelation 22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

Do you appreciate this?

The word SOVEREIGNTY/SOVEREIGN is not a King James Bible word and properly refers to the realms of this world, the kingdoms and nations of earth. The word of God never applies as a term.

Calvinism or sometimes known as Reformed Theology comes in many different shades.

At some point, they all suggest that the absolute sovereignty of God overrides the action of mankind’s free will.

The five TULIP points of Calvinism:

T – Total Depravity: Man is so sinful he can’t save himself, nor can he even exercise faith to believe Christ.

U – Unconditional Election: God chooses those who will be saved based upon His will, not upon their merit.

L – Limited Atonement: Jesus died only for the elect. Those whom God has not elected can never be saved.

I – Irresistible Grace: God extends an internal call to the chosen, which they cannot resist.

P – Perseverance of the Saints: Once you’re saved, you can’t lose your salvation.

Gainsaying

look at the Scriptures, its context is verbally standing against the authority of God and his word.

Look at the example set by Core (Korah)

Jude 1:11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.

Numbers 16:1-4 Now Korah, the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi, and Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, and On, the son of Peleth, sons of Reuben, took men:
2 And they rose up before Moses, with certain of the children of Israel, two hundred and fifty princes of the assembly, famous in the congregation, men of renown: 3 And they gathered themselves together against Moses and against Aaron, and said unto them, Ye take too much upon you, seeing all the congregation are holy, every one of them, and the LORD is among them: wherefore then lift ye up yourselves above the congregation of the LORD? 4 And when Moses heard it, he fell upon his face:

Did he withstand the God-given authority of Moses to his face ?

Yes [ ] No [ ] Uncertain [ ]

 Luke 21:15 For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.

 Acts 10:29 Therefore came I unto you without gainsaying, as soon as I was sent for: I ask therefore for what intent ye have sent for me?

 Romans 10:21 But to Israel he saith, All day long I have stretched forth my hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people.

 Titus 1:9 Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.

 Jude 1:11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.

The self-conceited Brethren in in this case were the Puritans who wanted to absolutely take part in the secular government of the land and were refuted and withstood by King James I.

They didn’t believe that God appointed kings in spite of the scripture:

Ecclesiastes 8:4 Where the word of a king is, there is power: and who may say unto him, What doest thou?

In the entire history of mankind there is only one person fit to be the head of both the Secular And Spiritual Kingdom.

At present the kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ is not of this world, not of the politics of this world except as it influences the hearts of rulers and politicians.

Jeremiah 23:29 Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?
