“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.”
It is by the activity of Satan that we have become ignorant of whom the Father draws – though Jesus Himself answered the matter plainly and indeed died to fulfill it…
“And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.”
This he said, signifying what death he should die.
The drawing of the Father is through Jesus Christ unto every man, that they might come to Him. He draws all men; but not all come to Him. Every man who comes to Him has been drawn; not every man drawn comes to Him
For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!” But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed what he has heard from us?” So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ. But I ask, have they not heard? Indeed they have, for “Their voice has gone out to all the earth, and their words to the ends of the world.”
And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only,
but also for the sins of the whole world.
1 John 2:2
…that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation.
2 Corinthians 5:19
Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
