1 The vocabulary of a person or work is how concepts and teachings are presented. The expression, “Ye would not” immediately sets forth the idea of “Free moral agency.”

2 God desires all to be saved: “9: The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2 Pet. 3).

3 God desires all to be saved: “4: Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth” (I Tim. 2).

4 God desires all to be saved: “11: For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men” (Tit. 2).

5 Such salvation, though, is conditional: “9: The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2 Pet. 3). “4: Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth” (I Tim. 2). “11: For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men” (Tit. 2, cp. 2 Cor. 6: 1).

6 Such salvation, though, is conditional: “9: The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2 Pet. 3). “4: Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth” (I Tim. 2). “11: For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men” (Tit. 2, cp. 2 Cor. 6: 1).

7 Would not come: “34: O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not!” (Luke 13.)

8 Would not forgive: “…29: And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. 30: And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt” (Matt. 18).

9 Ye would not attend the marriage feast: “1: And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said, 2: The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son, 3: And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come” (Matt. 22).

10 Would not allow Christ to reign: “27: But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me” (Luke 19, see vs ).

11 Would not obey: “38: This is he, that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Sina, and with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us: 39: To whom our fathers would not obey, but thrust him from them, and in their hearts turned back again into Egypt” (Acts 7).

12 The positive side: Some did go to God (Acts 2: 41); are forgiving (Acts 7: 60); attending the marriage feast (Matt. 22: 10); they are allowing Christ to reign (Acts 10: 33, 48); and many have and are obeying (Rom. 6: 17, 18). The difference? These people desire to do as God would have them!

13 “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” (Rev. 22). “Whosoever will….”
