Welcome to worship and the word with Pastor Morris today were starting a new series called paternity in this new series. Pastor Robert shares that we get to choose where and how we spend eternity and that God's character is the answer to all of our tough questions. Today's message was about free will is is packed with so much theology in Scripture. So let's join Pastor Joe will be getting a new series called eternity. Your choice. So the title of today's message is, whosoever will now I'm going to do something little differently and I want to go through teaching to show you why I believe that the Bible teaches, whosoever will, but there are other people that don't believe this white and I am not trying to pick a fight. I'm not trying to set us apart from other churches. I was to come together. So it's okay if someone believes a different way than us that's okay in the body of Christ. So just I just I just want to say that the reason I have to say that is because I will talk about Calvinism and Arminianism. And hallelujah I don't want to be Brandon just let me just say that right. John Calvin lived from the an early 1500s. Jacob Arminius lived in the late 1500s and what people do today as they say, when you're Calvinist for your Arminius. I'd rather not even Brown going to be a Christian. That's all right about. So I follow Christ.

Okay, but I will have to talk about some things and I want to talk about.

Actually, the five points of Calvinism to show you why believe in. Whosoever will some but I'm not trying to start a fight. Okay I'm not trying to get more emails. The very fact that it makes us angry and we argue about things should show us that there could be something wrong so not trying to argue and I think that there were certain beliefs that could hinder us from sharing the gospel with everyone so that someone thought about it now before I get into the first 40 I got to explain the difference between doctrine and dogma.

The word doctrine comes from two Greek words become from the Greek word to the hospital which reads teaching, but it's the Bousquet which is in adds another element gives the Masters teaching doctrine means the Masters teaching in the Masters teaching never changes but our understanding of the Masters teaching changes socially.

When I teach there something like sell you a text doctrine, but your doctrine and my doctrine. Changes our understanding about the following. So actually what were talking about his dogma which is belief. By the way dogma is where we get our word dogmatic, which a lot of people who have strong dogma or dogmatic about it ever met someone like that text. So were talking about the Masters teaching. I'm telling you what I believe about it okay that you sent following so don't say what you like Calvinist, you're an organist again.

Both are students of the master and I'm not a student of each student, student of the master as well. Even our respect many women of God.usually the ages for churches. I so when you talk about Calvinism. There are five ports to Calvinism and you use the acronym tulip TULI think so those will be my five ports all right and I'll show you what I believe what I believe the Bible teaches. The first one is number one total depravity.

So the Teagan to extend for total depravity. Now what many believe this means is that we are so depraved. We have such a fallen sin nature that we can't even choose products that God just kind of saps us and we get saved but that we only have the ability to choose Christ. I disagree with it. I don't I do. I believe that we need that what it means that we're depraved, as it were born with a sin nature that we all have a sin nature, and yet God still gives us the ability to choose.

I really believe you determine where you spend eternity and that God is a just and merciful God gives every person a chance to accept Jesus Christ you have to do whatever belief you have has to be consistent with the nature and character of God and a God that would love the world so much that he would give his own son for the world, I believe, gives everyone an opportunity so but I do believe that were all born with the signature Romans three $0.23 for all of sin and fall short of the glory of God. It's very simple. I've asked you this before. If you want to know if we have a sin nature simple question. Did you have to teach your children to be bad or did it come naturally to them. I actually was Theosophical Internet a while back said funny signs and I thought this is a perfect son to represent a sin nature show you the signed caution. VeriSign has sharp edges.

Do not touch the edges of the assigned also the bridges out of him. How many people do you think, and how many of you are actually thinking. I wonder how short those edges are so the 41st morning of Calvinism's total depravity and some believe that means that we can choose God.

I don't believe things were charged with ugly robe. One was to make will understand that the second review and to let his unconditional election, unconditional election. What this belief is is that God chose some people to go to heaven and God chose some people go to hell. Again, I'm not think that they don't hear him say I'm not jumping to fight. I just don't believe that I believe that God wants everyone to come to Jesus Christ and God is not willing that any should perish, but what's all the come to repentance, so I don't believe God chose some of the Jews are too many scriptures to take the gospel to the whole world on the review son Matthew 2414 and this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come. What kind of God would have the gospel preached would not allow people to receive the gospel.

Mark 1615 and he said been going to all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. John 121.

The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, behold the Lamb of God who takes away the CN of the world. John 317 God not send his son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through him might be. Say second Corinthians 5 1920. Watch this carefully. That is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to himself, not imputing their sins to be in order to make this work imputed and has committed to us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us.

We implore you on Christ's behalf be reconciled to God.

God's pleading with us to the whole world be reconciled to God. God was given Christ reconciling the world, not the elect the world to himself, and now we are ambassadors. But here's what it says about the world not imputing their sins them this word imputing is in the Greek is an accounting term literally means depositing in an attempt to make a deposit into an Excel is what it say God is not depositing the world's Syrians into their account. Through Christ, he is taking care of everyone sin. Please make everyone in the world. Jesus has already paid for their sins. If he hasn't already paid for their sins go after the idea. He's already paid for the whole world would be say this is why it's so easy to witness because we can tell them your sense of argument paid for God's already reconciled.

It's up to you when you receive Jesus, like a bold statement and there's a lot of theology was no way to cover all the theology that you should cover in the 33 minute messages no way to do it so I just have to tonic it tidbits here, someone would say some pretty strong people don't go to hell for sin because of sin. Go to hell because of unbelief.

Jesus did not say the ones that don't CN go to heaven and the ones that sin go to hell only read exactly what he said. John 336 he who believes in the son has everlasting life does not believe the son shall not see life, the people go to hell because they don't believe Jesus already paid for their sins. That again is why it's so easy to witness because there's a check. Jesus has already written the check for all of your sins. It's just up to you when you endorsement and deposit and when you deposit in your account by faith in all of your sins are paid for your debt is paid in full and the righteousness of God is deposited in your That's what happens when we get sick when you you have a choice. God created you in his image with the choice is the third. This is the L in the word to you will remember these five and you know for some reason the third is limited atonement again. I I don't believe it's it basically means that Jesus died only for the elect for those that would that God chose and sent some injuries, but even die for the world. I think that is why Timmy scriptures that he died for the world I show you some scriptures below show you a couple that have a phrase once for all.

I love this and only chose two of them, but watches Hebrews 727 this, Jesus who does not need daily, as those high priest to offer up sacrifices, first for his own Syrians and then for the people's for this PDF wants watches words for all they did for all everyone when he offered up himself. Hebrews 912, not with the blood of goats and cows, but with his own blood he entered the most holy place wants for all for all, having obtained eternal redemption that this the reason that I'm sharing this is because I'm not trying to again separate from people have a different believe in the body pricing. We did not write it off.

I have a desire is the pastor of this church for you to have a desire to win people to Christ and I see if we were to believe something like this that God chose some people to be saved and others not be saved and will see in a moment, the part of this belief is they will be saved.

No matter what.

Whether they accept?

Don't just be safe. That's the extent that's the far extent of this belief in you'll see it on the next point they're just going to build this they will support. If that's the case why witness by telling you about products why pray for the lost. Why pray for people. When you look at the whole of Scripture asked what would I do. Jesus says go go now you can hear the urgency of his voice blotted the highways and the hedges and compel them to come in, that my house may be full.

Please go tell it. My desire is that we Gateway church every time we meet someone for thinking about how to talk the personalities every time my wife will tell you I talked people labor where we go, and I have an ulterior motive. I'm trying to get that person say everywhere. I'm trying to strike, strike up a conversation.

I'm trying to talk people. We went down to Austin and spinner family vacation and it's where Josh's move in Hanoi and will be planting a church on January down there and so everywhere I go I they say are you visiting yes visited Dallas I pastor a church there. My son moved down here and find the church okay so I'm telling everyone that because I one cycle really what church when you go to start the alternative that so we go down for family vacation and my aunt. We've been on the roof like three days and my son James said that I have proof positive that way. The plane church in Austin but we been here three days and no one is recognized to get some not say anything bad about Austin, but just bring us a lot of heathens this between us telling when I said that this between us. It's okay but little remark my twitter transceiver anyway so it's open.

It was amazing. I would tell people hate the lessons plane church and they were like oh I can be the end of the conversation. We need to tell people everywhere we go. There needs to be a driving force to win people to Christ.

That's the only reason preach this message. I felt very strongly. Okay, here's the fourth 40.

If the evidence that I am truly irresistible grace. What this means in the Calvinism teaching is that those who are chosen cannot resist the grace of God. They will accept Christ because it just irresistible. I disagree with that. I believe that you can resist.I believe God gave you will see I think that the, the, the, this this teaching basically means that God created robots and he created us without a will and choice. And I think you have a will. I think wow you what you think that's what your belief that I made sure on the select few weeks them. Your belief determines where you will spend eternity in your behavior determines how you it's very important you have a choice at 751 you stiffnecked and uncircumcised in your heart and ears, you always resist the Holy Spirit as your fathers did, so the you saying you resist your resisting the Holy Spirit and I want to like the idea. Jesus tells us we have a choice.

Matthew 724 therefore whoever hears these sayings of mine and does the young, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock they go down verse 26. Everyone who hears these sayings of mine, and does not do the will be like a foolish man who built his house on the same Dennis Selleck got healed choice when you hear my sayings. You can do them or not.

If you know otherwise if you don't your photos. Here's another verse showing Jesus say you have a choice. Matthew 1032 and 33 therefore whoever confesses me before men, him I will also confess before my father who is in heaven. But whoever denies me before me and EMI will also deny before my father who is in heaven. G Jesus assignments is not saying we got all worked out. We got some we chose to live with us and some that are going to be just four-minute forever no matter what they do on earth.

Even if I would cry out this site you say you confess me, I'll confess you if you deny me. I will deny you. In other words, a sense of you subcu will after I got saved. I remember going back to nearly all my drug friends and sharing the gospel with in one of those I just kept sure whether Makiki kept saying to me something like I just I just woke God up to prove himself to me I wanted. I said when you mean preachers himself. He saw just one play buddies alive prove that his real prove that he knows me. You know stuff like this and I guess it was probably 30 minutes or so and he site is when some spectacular city did something spectacular. He sent his son for you decide not just will be some spectacular like right now today and show me that Israel and I was just a young Christian I just got just fed up. You know, and so I just put my hand on us and not just pray you'll sure that you could kill them, but you're not going to. I don't know how theological that was but but the next night he got drunk went off the road, instructs the man's door came open. He fell out of the rolling ditch into her because throat probably just roll around his truck went into the tree and did catch on fire and burned up in the police officer said to him, which he thought was later the police officer said the son God was looking out for you. God is trying to tell you to get your life straight. Here's the sad part is stilling the site because you can resist the that's what the Bible means that even if even if someone did something amazing they would believe him if I wrote someone rose from the dead which Jesus did run from so irresistible right. Here's the fifth point perseverance of the saints, this means is that if you're one of the chosen you're going to persevere to the young. No matter what. I think this takes personal responsibility on again. I think that's her choice.

Even after we get saved out of it and I must say whether we can lose our salvation, but I either way I believe this is a little differently. It starts perseverance starts with PDR.

I will change the those first three letters to PRE. I believe in the preservation of the sites. In other words, I believe that God preserves those who may lots and him calling his name.

Psalm 3120 30 love the Lord, all you his sites for the Lord preserves the faithful think about how your preserves something. Psalm 3728 for the Lord loves justice that does not forsake his saints. They are preserved forever. Psalm 9070 and you who love the Lord hate evil. He preserves the soles of his saints, and this is why Paul said in the New Testament first or second Timothy 112. For this reason, I also suffer these things.

Nevertheless, I am not ashamed, for I know whom I happily and am persuaded that he is able to keep what I've committed to him until that day say this is a focal focus on my strengths and focuses on history that God is able to keep that which I committed to him. Your productivity and I've committed my faith in the substitutionary death of the Lord Jesus Christ. I've committed my faith to him.

He's able to keep that until the day if you notice that verse days capitalized things.

The Judgment Day. Now here's the reason that I named this message, whosoever will okay I will show you some Scriptures, read about the old King James. The reason is in the new King James all the diversions which I use linking James it says whoever because we don't use the word whosoever but I remember hearing the words growing up, whosoever so that's it just came to me as I was praying about which message to start this series with whosoever will, whosoever will, so Maria milking James so we can see the whosoever's in the Bible right Matthew 1625 for whosoever will save his life shall lose it, and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find.

Notice again, the onus is on you.

You have a choice.

Mark 834 and when you call the people in the him with his disciples also a set of them, whosoever will come after me, let it deny himself and take up his cross and follow me asked to 21 and it shall come to pass that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. Acts 243 to here give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believe within him shall receive remission of sins.

Romans 1013 for whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be safe.

Revelation 2217 messages verse 21. The last verse of the Bible just for verses here before the end of the Bible and the Spirit and the bride say, come.

And let him that here and say come and let him that is the first time and whosoever will assess how the Bible ends, let him take the water of life freely in the most famous verse in the Bible John 316 for God so loved the world that he gave his only beloved begotten son, that whosoever believe within should not perish but shall have endless whosoever will is what I'm telling you Joan everyone. Right now you determine where you return. You can't blame God given to determine give your life to Jesus Christ but your faith and trust to go to heaven don't you go to hell we want to just take a moment to think about with ceramic chair today and really listen to the Holy Spirit saying to you if you would like to connect with the sword.
