第十章 论有效的恩召

中文赵中辉版

  一、凡神所预定得生命的人,而且只有这些人,他喜欢在指定与悦纳的时候,本着他的道与灵1,有效地召他们2出离本性之罪与死的状态,而到耶稣基督的恩典与拯救中3。在属灵与得救的事上光照他们的心,以致明白有关神的事4,除掉他们的石心,赐给他们一颗肉心5,更新他们的意志6。用他的大能使他们决定向善,并有效地吸引他们来就耶稣基督7。但他们来是极其自由的,因他们的决志是被主的恩造成的8。


  二、此有效的恩召是惟独出于神白白的与特别的恩典,丝毫不是由于在人里面预见什么9。因人在这恩召上全属被动,及至被圣灵感化和更新10,他才能回应此召,并接纳在此恩召中所提供和传达的恩惠11。


  三、死于幼年被选的婴孩,已被基督借圣灵而重生得救了12,圣灵何时,何处,用何方法作工,皆随己意13。 另有一些在外部未能蒙神话语呼召的选民,也都照样得救14。


  四、其他未蒙拣选者,他们虽然蒙神话语的呼召15,或许有圣灵一些普通的感动16,但他们并未真正归向基督,所以不能得救17。不承认基督教的人,更不能靠任何其他别的方法,不拘如何殷勤按照自然之光与自己所承认的宗教来过生活,也不能得救18。若主张说他们可以得救,乃为有害且极可憎的事19。

第十章 论有效的恩召

一.上帝惟独对那些预定得永生的人,才按祂自己的美意,在祂所指定和悦纳的时候,借着祂的道和灵(帖后2:13,14;林后 3:3,6),有效地呼召他们(罗8:30;11:7;弗 1:10-11),使他们脱离与生俱来的罪和死亡,借着耶 稣基督而蒙恩得救(罗8:2;弗2:1-5;提后1:9-10)。在属灵与得救的事上,上帝光照他们的心思意念,使他们得以明白关乎上帝的事(徒26:18;林前 2:10,12;弗1:17-18);除掉他们的石心,赐 给他们一颗肉心(结36:26);使他们的意志更 新而变化,用祂的大能使他们定意向善(结11:19;腓2:13;申30:6;结36:27),并有效地吸引他们归向耶稣基督(弗1:19;约6:44-45)。因着祂的恩典,他们的归向是甘心乐意的,因此,他们来到基督那里,是完全自愿的(歌1:4;诗110 :3;约6:37;罗6:16-18)。


二.这种有效的恩召惟独出于上帝白白和特别的恩典,而绝非由于祂在人里 面预见到什么(提后1:9;多3:4-5;弗2:4-5,8-9;罗9:11);在这一过程中,人是完全被动的,直到圣灵使他活过来,并更新他(林前2:14;罗8:7;弗 2:5),他才有能力回应这一呼召,领受其中所显明的恩典(约6:37;结36:27; 约5:25)。


三. 那蒙拣选的婴孩,若死于幼年,则借着基督由圣灵重生得救了(比较路:18:15-16;徒2:38,39;约3:3,5;约壹5:12;罗8:9)。圣灵何时何地,用何种方式做工,都是随祂自己的美意(约3:8)。其他未能在外部蒙受所传之道呼召的选民,也是如此(约壹5:12;徒4:12)。


四. 其他未蒙拣选者,虽然被所传之道呼召(太22:14),也多少有圣灵 的普通运行(太7:22;13:20-21;来6:4-5),可是他们从未真正地来到基督面前,因此不能得救(约6:64-66;8:24);不信服基督教的人,更不能靠其他任何方式得救,不管他们是何等殷勤地按照理性之光和他们所信奉的宗 教的律法生活(徒4:12 ;约14:6;弗2:12;约4:22;17:3);若主张他们可以得救,乃是非常有害、极其邪恶和可憎的(约贰9-11;林前 16:22;加1:6-8)。


中文吕沛渊版

第十章 论有效的恩召

10.1 凡上帝所預定得生命的人,且僅止於這些人,祂樂意在祂指 定與認可的時候,藉著祂的道與聖靈,有效地呼召他們;他們按 本性原是在罪與死的狀態中,上帝召他們脫離此景況,藉著耶穌 基督得恩惠蒙拯救。在此恩召中,上帝光照他們的心,使他們成 為屬靈的與得救的人,以致明白屬神的事。上帝除掉他們的石 心,賜給他們肉心,更新他們的意志,用祂的大能使他們回轉向 善,並有效地吸引他們歸屬耶穌基督。上帝所作的是如此奇妙, 使他們完全是自願來歸向耶穌,都是上帝的恩典使他們心甘情 願。


10.2 這有效恩召,唯獨出於上帝白白的與特別的恩典,完全不是 因為上帝預見在人裡面有任何善行;人在這件事上完全是被動; 人要等到蒙聖靈的重生與更新,才得著能力回應此恩召,得享上 帝在此恩召中所賜予與傳達的恩典。


10.3 蒙揀選的嬰兒而早夭者,被重生蒙拯救是本乎基督,藉著聖 靈;聖靈何時、何處、如何做工,皆隨祂的美意。照樣,其他一 切無法藉著聖道的傳講、蒙外在呼召的選民,也都是如此得救。


10.4 其他未蒙揀選者,雖然可能藉聖道的傳講蒙呼召,也可能經 歷聖靈一般的運行,但他們從未真正來就基督,所以不能得救。 更何況那些不承認基督教信仰的人,更不能靠任何其他方法得 救;無論他們按照天然的光、和自己所信奉的宗教規條,如何殷 勤生活,也不能得救。任何肯定與堅稱他們可以以其他方法得救 的說法,都是非常有害的,並且是可惡的。

CHAPTER 10 OF EFFECTUAL CALLING

1. All those whom God hath predestinated unto life, and those only, he is pleased, in his appointed and accepted time, effectually to call, by his Word and Spirit, out of that state of sin and death, in which they are by nature, to grace and salvation, by Jesus Christ; enlightening their minds spiritually and savingly to understand the things of God, taking away their heart of stone, and giving unto them a heart of flesh; renewing their wills, and, by his almighty power, determining them to that which is good, and effectually drawing them to Jesus Christ: yet so, as they come most freely, being made willing by his grace.

2. This effectual call is of God's free and special grace alone, not from anything at all foreseen in man, who is altogether passive therein, until, being quickened and renewed by the Holy Spirit, he is thereby enabled to answer this call, and to embrace the grace offered and conveyed in it.

3. Elect infants, dying in infancy, are regenerated, and saved by Christ, through the Spirit, who worketh when, and where, and how he pleaseth: so also are all other elect persons who are incapable of being outwardly called by the ministry of the Word.

4. Others, not elected, although they may be called by the ministry of the Word, and may have some common operations of the Spirit, yet they never truly come unto Christ, and therefore cannot be saved: much less can men, not professing the Christian religion, be saved in any other way whatsoever, be they never so diligent to frame their lives according to the light of nature, and the laws of that religion they do profess. And, to assert and maintain that they may, is very pernicious, and to be detested.

Chapter X

Of Effectual Calling

I. All those whom God hath predestinated unto life, and those only, He is pleased, in His appointed time, effectually to call,[1] by His Word and Spirit,[2] out of that state of sin and death, in which they are by nature to grace and salvation, by Jesus Christ;[3] enlightening their minds spiritually and savingly to understand the things of God,[4] taking away their heart of stone, and giving unto them an heart of flesh;[5] renewing their wills, and, by His almighty power, determining them to that which is good,[6] and effectually drawing them to Jesus Christ:[7] yet so, as they come most freely, being made willing by His grace.[8]

II. This effectual call is of God's free and special grace alone, not from anything at all foreseen in man,[9] who is altogether passive therein, until, being quickened and renewed by the Holy Spirit,[10] he is thereby enabled to answer this call, and to embrace the grace offered and conveyed in it.[11]

III. Elect infants, dying in infancy, are regenerated, and saved by Christ, through the Spirit,[12] who works when, and where, and how He pleases:[13] so also are all other elect persons who are incapable of being outwardly called by the ministry of the Word.[14]

IV. Others, not elected, although they may be called by the ministry of the Word,[15] and may have some common operations of the Spirit,[16] yet they never truly come unto Christ, and therefore cannot be saved:[17] much less can men, not professing the Christian religion, be saved in any other way whatsoever, be they never so diligent to frame their lives according to the light of nature, and the laws of that religion they do profess.[18] And to assert and maintain that they may, is very pernicious, and to be detested.[19]


第十章 论有效的恩召 证明经文

第一节

1

帖后2:13,14 帖后 2:13 主所爱的弟兄们哪,我们本该常为你们感谢 神,因为他从起初拣选了你们,叫你们因信真道,又被圣灵感动,成为圣洁,能以得救。 帖后 2:14  神藉我们所传的福音召你们到这地步,好得着我们主耶稣基督的荣光。

林后3:3,6 林后 3:3 你们明显是基督的信,藉着我们修成的;不是用墨写的,乃是用永生 神的灵写的;不是写在石版上,乃是写在心版上。 林后 3:6 他叫我们能承当这新约的执事,不是凭着字句,乃是凭着精意;因为那字句是叫人死,精意是叫人活(“精意”或作“圣灵”)。


2

罗8:30;罗11:7 罗 8:30 预先所定下的人又召他们来,所召来的人又称他们为义,所称为义的人又叫他们得荣耀。 罗 11:7 这是怎么样呢?以色列人所求的,他们没有得着;惟有蒙拣选的人得着了,其余的就成了顽梗不化的。

弗1:10-11弗 1:10 要照所安排的,在日期满足的时候,使天上地上一切所有的,都在基督里面同归于一。 弗 1:11 我们也在他里面得了基业(“得”或作“成”),这原是那位随己意行作万事的,照着他旨意所预定的,


3

罗 8:2 因为赐生命圣灵的律,在基督耶稣里释放了我,使我脱离罪和死的律了。

弗2:1-5弗 2:1 你们死在过犯罪恶之中,他叫你们活过来。 弗 2:2 那时,你们在其中行事为人,随从今世的风俗,顺服空中掌权者的首领,就是现今在悖逆之子心中运行的邪灵。 弗 2:3 我们从前也都在他们中间,放纵肉体的私欲,随着肉体和心中所喜好的去行,本为可怒之子,和别人一样。 弗 2:4 然而 神既有丰富的怜悯,因他爱我们的大爱, 弗 2:5 当我们死在过犯中的时候,便叫我们与基督一同活过来(你们得救是本乎恩)。

4

徒 26:18 我差你到他们那里去,要叫他们的眼睛得开,从黑暗中归向光明,从撒但权下归向 神;又因信我,得蒙赦罪,和一切成圣的人同得基业。’

林前2:10,12 林前 2:10 只有 神藉着圣灵向我们显明了,因为圣灵参透万事,就是 神深奥的事也参透了。 林前 2:12 我们所领受的,并不是世上的灵,乃是从 神来的灵,叫我们能知道 神开恩赐给我们的事。

弗1:17-18弗 1:17 求我们主耶稣基督的 神,荣耀的父,将那赐人智慧和启示的灵赏给你们,使你们真知道他; 弗 1:18 并且照明你们心中的眼睛,使你们知道他的恩召有何等指望,他在圣徒中得的基业有何等丰盛的荣耀


5

结 36:26 我也要赐给你们一个新心,将新灵放在你们里面。又从你们的肉体中除掉石心,赐给你们肉心。


6

结 11:19 我要使他们有合一的心,也要将新灵放在他们里面,又从他们肉体中除掉石心,赐给他们肉心。

腓 2:13 因为你们立志行事,都是 神在你们心里运行,为要成就他的美意。

申 30:6 耶和华你 神必将你心里和你后裔心里的污秽除掉,好叫你尽心尽性爱耶和华你的 神,使你可以存活。

结 36:27 我必将我的灵,放在你们里面,使你们顺从我的律例,谨守遵行我的典章。

7

弗 1:19 并知道他向我们这信的人所显的能力,是何等浩大,

约6:44-45约 6:44 若不是差我来的父吸引人,就没有能到我这里来的;到我这里来的,在末日我要叫他复活。 约 6:45 在先知书上写着说:‘他们都要蒙 神的教训。’凡听见父之教训又学习的,就到我这里来。


8

歌 1:4 愿你吸引我,我们就快跑跟随你。王带我进了内室,我们必因你欢喜快乐;【众人:】我们要称赞你的爱情,胜似称赞美酒。【佳偶:】他们爱你是理所当然的。

诗 110:3 当你掌权的日子(或作“行军的日子”),你的民要以圣洁的妆饰为衣(或作“以圣洁为妆饰”),甘心牺牲自己;你的民多如清晨的甘露(或作“你少年时光耀如清晨的甘露”)。

约 6:37 凡父所赐给我的人,必到我这里来;到我这里来的,我总不丢弃他。

罗6:16-18罗 6:16 岂不晓得你们献上自己作奴仆,顺从谁,就作谁的奴仆吗?或作罪的奴仆,以至于死;或作顺命的奴仆,以至成义。 罗 6:17 感谢 神!因为你们从前虽然作罪的奴仆,现今却从心里顺服了所传给你们道理的模范。 罗 6:18 你们既从罪里得了释放,就作了义的奴仆。

第二节

9

提后 1:9  神救了我们,以圣召召我们,不是按我们的行为,乃是按他的旨意和恩典。这恩典是万古之先,在基督耶稣里赐给我们的;

多3:4-5 多 3:4 但到了 神我们救主的恩慈和他向人所施的慈爱显明的时候, 多 3:5 他便救了我们,并不是因我们自己所行的义,乃是照他的怜悯,藉着重生的洗和圣灵的更新。

弗2:4-5,8-9 弗 2:4 然而 神既有丰富的怜悯,因他爱我们的大爱, 弗 2:5 当我们死在过犯中的时候,便叫我们与基督一同活过来(你们得救是本乎恩)。 弗 2:8 你们得救是本乎恩,也因着信,这并不是出于自己,乃是 神所赐的; 弗 2:9 也不是出于行为,免得有人自夸。

罗 9:11 (双子还没有生下来,善恶还没有作出来,只因要显明 神拣选人的旨意,不在乎人的行为,乃在乎召人的主)。


10

林前 2:14 然而,属血气的人不领会 神圣灵的事,反倒以为愚拙,并且不能知道;因为这些事惟有属灵的人才能看透。

罗 8:7 原来体贴肉体的,就是与 神为仇;因为不服 神的律法,也是不能服。

弗 2:5 当我们死在过犯中的时候,便叫我们与基督一同活过来(你们得救是本乎恩)。


11

约 6:37 凡父所赐给我的人,必到我这里来;到我这里来的,我总不丢弃他。

结 36:27 我必将我的灵,放在你们里面,使你们顺从我的律例,谨守遵行我的典章。

约 5:25 我实实在在地告诉你们,时候将到,现在就是了,死人要听见 神儿子的声音,听见的人就要活了。

第三节

12

路18:15-16 路 18:15 有人抱着自己的婴孩来见耶稣,要他摸他们;门徒看见就责备那些人。 路 18:16 耶稣却叫他们来,说:“让小孩子到我这里来,不要禁止他们;因为在 神国的,正是这样的人。

徒2:38,39 徒 2:38 彼得说:“你们各人要悔改,奉耶稣基督的名受洗,叫你们的罪得赦,就必领受所赐的圣灵; 徒 2:39 因为这应许是给你们和你们的儿女,并一切在远方的人,就是主我们 神所召来的。”

约3:3,5 约 3:3 耶稣回答说:“我实实在在地告诉你,人若不重生,就不能见 神的国。” 约 3:5 耶稣说:“我实实在在地告诉你,人若不是从水和圣灵生的,就不能进 神的国。

约一 5:12 人有了 神的儿子就有生命;没有 神的儿子就没有生命。

罗 8:9 如果 神的灵住在你们心里,你们就不属肉体,乃属圣灵了。人若没有基督的灵,就不是属基督的。


13

约 3:8 风随着意思吹,你听见风的响声,却不晓得从哪里来,往哪里去;凡从圣灵生的,也是如此。”


14

约一 5:12 人有了 神的儿子就有生命;没有 神的儿子就没有生命。

徒 4:12 除他以外,别无拯救;因为在天下人间,没有赐下别的名,我们可以靠着得救。”

第四节

15

太 22:14 因为被召的人多,选上的人少。”


16

太7:22;太13:20-21 太 7:22 当那日必有许多人对我说:‘主啊,主啊,我们不是奉你的名传道,奉你的名赶鬼,奉你的名行许多异能吗?’ 太 13:20 撒在石头地上的,就是人听了道,当下欢喜领受; 太 13:21 只因心里没有根,不过是暂时的;及至为道遭了患难,或是受了逼迫,立刻就跌倒了。

来6:4-5 来 6:4 论到那些已经蒙了光照、尝过天恩的滋味、又于圣灵有分、 来 6:5 并尝过 神善道的滋味、觉悟来世权能的人,


17

约6:64-66;约8:24 约 6:64 只是你们中间有不信的人。”耶稣从起头就知道谁不信他,谁要卖他。 约 6:65 耶稣又说:“所以我对你们说过,若不是蒙我父的恩赐,没有人能到我这里来。” 约 6:66 从此,他门徒中多有退去的,不再和他同行。 约 8:24 所以我对你们说,你们要死在罪中,你们若不信我是基督,必要死在罪中。”


18

徒 4:12 除他以外,别无拯救;因为在天下人间,没有赐下别的名,我们可以靠着得救。”

约 14:6 耶稣说:“我就是道路、真理、生命;若不藉着我,没有人能到父那里去。

弗 2:12 那时,你们与基督无关,在以色列国民以外,在所应许的诸约上是局外人,并且活在世上没有指望,没有 神。

约4:22;约17:3 约 4:22 你们所拜的,你们不知道;我们所拜的,我们知道,因为救恩是从犹太人出来的。约 17:3 认识你独一的真 神,并且认识你所差来的耶稣基督;这就是永生。


19

约贰1:9-11 约二 1:9 凡越过基督的教训不常守着的,就没有 神;常守这教训的,就有父又有子。 约二 1:10 若有人到你们那里,不是传这教训,不要接他到家里,也不要问他的安; 约二 1:11 因为问他安的,就在他的恶行上有分。

林前 16:22 若有人不爱主,这人可诅可咒。主必要来。

加1:6-8 加 1:6 我希奇你们这么快离开那藉着基督之恩召你们的,去从别的福音。 加 1:7 那并不是福音,不过有些人搅扰你们,要把基督的福音更改了。 加 1:8 但无论是我们,是天上来的使者,若传福音给你们,与我们所传给你们的不同,他就应当被咒诅。

[1] ROM 8:30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. 11:7 What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded. EPH 1:10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him: 11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will.

[2] 2TH 2:13 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: 14 Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. 2CO 3:3 Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart. 6 Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.

[3] ROM 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. EPH 2:1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; 2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: 3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. 4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, 5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved). 2TI 1:9 Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began, 10 But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.

[4] ACT 26:18 To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. 1CO 2:10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. EPH 1:17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: 18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints.

[5] EZE 36:26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.

[6] EZE 11:19 And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh. PHI 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. DEU 30:6 And the Lord thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live. EZE 36:27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.

[7] EPH 1:19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to usward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power. JOH 6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. 45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.

[8] SON 1:4 Draw me, we will run after thee. PSA 110:3 Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth. JOH 6:37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. ROM 6:16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? 17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. 18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.

[9] 2TI 1:9 Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began. TIT 3:4 But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, 5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost. EPH 2:4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, 5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved). 8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. ROM 9:11 For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth.

[10] 1CO 2:14 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. ROM 8:7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. EPH 2:5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved).

[11] JOH 6:37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. EZE 36:37 Thus saith the Lord God; I will yet for this be inquired of by the house of Israel, to do it for them; I will increase them with men like a flock. JOH 5:25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.

[12] LUK 18:15 And they brought unto him also infants, that he would touch them: but when his disciples saw it, they rebuked them. 16 But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. ACT 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. JOH 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. 5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 1JO 5:12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. ROM 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

[13] JOH 3:8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

[14] 1JO 5:12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. ACT 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

[15] MAT 22:14 For many are called, but few are chosen.

[16] MAT 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 13:20 But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it; 21 Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended. HEB 6:4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, 5 And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come.

[17] JOH 6:64 But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him. 65 And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father. 66 From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. 8:24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.

[18] ACT 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. JOH 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. EPH 2:12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world. JOH 4:22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

[19] 2JO 1:9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. 10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: 11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds. 1CO 16:22 If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha. GAL 1:6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: 7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
