1 Pray for only people in Book Of Life Answer 1 Tim 2:1 DocTrinsograce Wed 07/23/14, 7:00pm 240917
  Hi, wrbrown...

Welcome to the forum!

Scripture tells us to pray for all men. That probably means that we pray for some of His own and others who are not.

Charles Spurgeon once said something that might have some bearing on the question: "If the Lord had put a yellow stripe down the backs of the elect, I'd go up and down the street lifting up shirt tails, finding out who had the yellow stripe, and then I'd give them the gospel. But God didn't do it that way. He told me to preach the gospel to every creature that 'whosoever will may come.'"

The gospel call is free to all men. Consequently, we pray for all men. God will redeem His own (John 6:43-45) assuredly and certainly.

In Him, Doc
2 Not merely reasonable... Note Ps 92:6 DocTrinsograce Wed 07/23/14, 6:50pm 240915
  "I hold that belief in God is not merely as reasonable as other belief, or even a little or infinitely more probably true than other belief; I hold rather that unless you believe in God you can logically believe in nothing else." --Cornelius Van Til (1895-1987)
3 The Treasure of Fearing the Lord Note Ps 22:23 DocTrinsograce Tue 07/22/14, 5:33pm 240913
  "Christian, let God's distinguishing love to you be a motive to you to fear Him greatly. He has put His fear in your heart, and may not have given that blessing to your neighbor, perhaps not to your husband, your wife, your child, or your parent. Oh, what an obligation should this thought lay upon your heart to greatly fear the Lord! Remember also that this fear of the Lord is His treasure, a choice jewel, given only to favorites, and to those who are greatly beloved." --John Bunyan (1628-1688)
4 where will those of us who are saved go Answer Matt 25:6 DocTrinsograce Tue 07/22/14, 5:25pm 240912
  Hi, Anita...

It always seems odd to me that people make a great show of all manner of ecstatic worship; yet the most marvelous worship -- that for which John says is thing for which we purify ourselves (1 John 3:2-3) -- right in the very presence of the Lamb, is so rarely mentioned. Once that actually takes place, I cannot imagine anyone who truly loves His appearing, will want to be anywhere else.

In Him, Doc
5 When will this happen? Is this rapture? Answer Luke 17:34 EdB Tue 07/22/14, 12:44pm 240910

7 where will those of us who are saved go Answer 2 Cor 5:8 EdB Tue 07/22/14, 8:41am 240907
  Paul tells us when we die we go home to be with the Lord.
Scripture tells us that during the Millennium Jesus will rule and reign on earth. How it all occurs scripture does not detail and that only leaves speculation which serves no real purpose and is dangerous way to handle God's word.
8 God's Grace Preceding a Man's Need Note 2 Cor 9:8 DocTrinsograce Mon 07/21/14, 12:24pm 240904
  "When I heard those parts of the Scriptures read in the Church which extol the grace of God, and lower the free-will of man, for example, 'It is not of him that willeth, or of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy,' and many similar passages, -- this doctrine of grace was very disagreeable to my ungrateful mind. But afterwards I began to perceive some few distant rays of light respecting this matter. I seemed to see, but by no means clearly, that the grace of God is prior, both in nature and in time, to any good actions that men can possibly perform; and I return thanks to God, from whom proceeds every good thing, for thus freely enlightening my understanding." --Thomas Bradwardine (1290-1349)
9 Blessing Arising from Penitent Petition Note Luke 1:68 DocTrinsograce Sun 07/20/14, 7:46am 240903
  "You dare not lift your hands to place God's name in blessing on His people until you have first clasped them in penitent petition for His grace." --Edmund P. Clowney
10 Who is "you" in Isa 49:6? Answer Is 49:6 DocTrinsograce Sun 07/20/14, 7:39am 240902
  Hi, 00012...

There is a consensus among commentators that the antecedent of the second person pronoun here are the elect. (cf Acts 13:47 for how the apostles cited this passage)

In Him, Doc
