Patience young grasshopper.
You are correct....it was the promised land God had cast them out of.
So would agree then that what we are reading about is when the Lord shall set his hand a second time to recover the remnant of his people as the first(Egyptian captivity) is spoken as a past event?
Yes

What a horrible quote!

"To those who are God's chosen ones the Holy Spirit is sent not only to enlighten them to understand the Gospel set forth in Scriptures but to enable them to accept God's promise of forgiveness.”

God’s chosen ones already believe, so it would be a total waste of time to send the Holy Spirit to make them believe. A person without faith doesn’t even belong to God.

“By this "effectual calling”. Huh? Where is that in the Bible? Oh wait, it’s not. God’s calling is effectual either way a person decides.

Okay J4....if you say its before entering the promise land, then what land did God cast them out of after the
Egyptian captivity?
Deut 29:25 Then men shall say, Because they have forsaken the covenant of the LORD God of their fathers, which he made with them when he brought them forth out of the land of Egypt:
26For they went and served other gods, and worshipped them, gods whom they knew not, and whom he had not given unto them:
27And the anger of the LORD was kindled against this land, to bring upon it all the curses that are written in this book:
28And the LORD **rooted them out of their land**in anger, and in wrath, and in great indignation, and cast them into another land, as it is this day.
God cast them out of the Promise Land, correct? I’m curious what this has to do with Total Depravity, Unconditional Election, Limited Atonement, or Irresistible Grace. Please enlighten me!

Okay, lets take your suggestion you made earlier and consider the context....but lets expand that to involve more help on understanding the picture.
Deut. 29 is the beginning of the narrative which involves Deut 30:1-3....and we see that narrative speaks of the Egyptian captivity which God took them out of right?
So would you agree that as being a past event in the narrative?
I'm going somewhere with this so bare with me if your up for it. If not that's fine too.
Yes, after the Exodus and before entering the Promised Land.

Matt. 13
Rom 2:29
2 Cor 3

Will you show me where that is in this narrative, which if I'm not mistaken, is during the same timeline as what is spoken in the context of Deut. 30:6?

Ezekiel 36
26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you:

Correct on all of those previous verses.

“And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come upon thee, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before thee, and thou shalt call them to mind among all the nations, whither the Lord thy God hath driven thee, And shalt return unto the Lord thy God, and shalt obey his voice according to all that I command thee this day, thou and thy children, with all thine heart, and with all thy soul; That then the Lord thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither the Lord thy God hath scattered thee.”
‭‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭30:1-3‬

So God says if they turn and obey, He will then do such and such. They must obey first. This isn’t about salvation though, it is about returning to the land.

Ezekiel 36 hasn’t happened yet. I’m of the impression that all Israel will one day be saved and this verse is talking about that time.

Truth is but tripe to people who would rather believe in their religion than in God’s word. It’s the old refrain by Satan, “Has God said?” They have no fear of adding to God’s word here and subtracting from it there. A little manipulation goes a long way! Everyone only means some and the whole world means a very limited select few. Faith isn’t obedience, it’s self conscious awareness. A bunch of demon dribble if you ask me!

Apparently no amount of biblical persuasion is going to have any effect on J4J.
If only you used any! You gave one Biblical example that turned out to have nothing to say about what we were talking about. Try again, unless you’re saying TULIP isn’t found in scripture!

Just so I'm understanding you correctly, from your point of view, the words spoken in Deut. 30:6 has not occurred yet, but when it does it will only apply to Jews?
That may be true, but my point was more to the fact that God will do those things for them if they first obey Him.

“If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if thou turn unto the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul.”
‭‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭30:10‬

“When they heard these things, they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed on him with their teeth.”
‭‭Acts‬ ‭7:54‬

That’s all that the name calling amounts too. People know I’m right and can’t stand it!

Call on the name of the Lord and you will be saved! That’s what receiving salvation has always consisted of. If anyone wants they may believe on Him. That’s why it is called the good news of the gospel.

One day soon, on the last day, Jesus will cry out for believers to come to Him in the sky and Peter, Paul, and countless others will be drawn up to Him by the Heavenly Father. This is what the Bible teaches and I have not lied about it or anything else! I am not a robot and TULIP isn’t found in Scripture!

"They can do"?

Deut 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.

The Lord thy God will circumcise thine heart.

Let’s look at the context:

“And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come upon thee, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before thee, and thou shalt call them to mind among all the nations, whither the Lord thy God hath driven thee, And shalt return unto the Lord thy God, and shalt obey his voice according to all that I command thee this day, thou and thy children, with all thine heart, and with all thy soul;”
‭‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭30:1-2‬

It is only after the Jews return unto the Lord their God and obeys what He commanded them with all their heart and soul, does God then empower them to carry it through!

“...Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.”
‭‭Acts‬ ‭16:30-31‬

What the jailer had to do to be saved was believe on the Lord Jesus. Wouldn’t you agree that he did what he had to do to be saved?

Jesus had physically come to Peter after His resurrection and yet what Jesus said earlier still pertained. Which was where He was going, Peter couldn’t come.

“I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father. His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb.”
‭‭John‬ ‭16:28-29‬

It wasn’t a metaphoric statement either. Jesus was speaking plainly!

Paul hadn’t come to Jesus yet either. Where Jesus was, Paul couldn’t come. Now like Peter, Paul might have come to believe in Jesus, whatever that means, but he had not yet gone to where Jesus was in Heaven. That will happen on the last day.

One’s experiences doesn’t dictate scriptural truth.

“Little children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye shall seek me: and as I said unto the Jews, Whither I go, ye cannot come; so now I say to you. A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow me afterwards.”
‭‭John‬ ‭13:33-36‬

Peter was already a believer, some would say he had come to believe in Jesus, yet he could not follow Jesus. Jesus was going back to His Father and Peter would later follow.

Interesting, I have been a Christian longer than some here. There are billions of people who have had experiences before, but we don’t get Christian doctrine from those experiences or we would teach fairy tales like Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster. Where are you from again John UK? At any rate, Jesus taught He was going to the Father. That is a fact and He ascended to be with the Father as He predicted. He also said we couldn’t ascend yet. That is also a fact seeing that nobody has ever ascended since then, but Jesus. However, one day Jesus will return again and believers will be drawn to Him in the air. They will come to Him there. It doesn’t mean believers aren’t saved, I never suggested that.

“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.”
‭‭John‬ ‭6:44‬

Nobody has the ability to come to Jesus. Except the Father draw them up to Him and Jesus raise them up when? At the last day! That is not talking about coming to Jesus now, but in the future, at the last day.

Oh Look!!
The Lord dares to contradict JohnFor?
Jesus chose specific people to be Apostles. There were only 12 of them. Jesus wasn’t talking about choosing them for salvation! Out of those 12, eleven were believers. Judas wasn’t. So no contradiction.

Sinners cannot save themselves. However, there is something they can do to become saved. Repent and believe!

“...Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.”
‭‭Acts‬ ‭16:30-31‬

Oh yeah, I almost forgot. TULIP isn’t in the Bible!

When they cannot refute the truth, they will accuse others of being Catholic, Arminian, Anglican, Liberal, and the such in order to demonize a person who has a Biblical view of faith. They might even point to a bunch of old dead guys who taught Calvinism as validation for their own beliefs. Realizing Biblically, they got nothing. TULIP isn’t taught in scripture!

They have even been known to exclaim your unappreciation towards God for saying, “I believed and was saved”. Then when you point out that it is a phrase used in the Bible, they act like it was okay all along.

“What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?”
‭‭John‬ ‭6:62‬

Where does Jesus go? Heaven.

“Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow me afterwards.”
‭‭John‬ ‭13:36‬

“And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.”
‭‭John‬ ‭14:3‬

The idea is taught over and over again. Jesus came from the Father, returned to the Father, and will one day come again. Then believers will be drawn up to His location. Almost like they will come to Him in the air!

My point is proven by the excuses made for believing the word “come” means anything but to move toward something. The Calvinist will change the meaning and give it a new definition which means instead to believe. They do that without blinking an eye because they are so used to making it up as they go. However, the word by definition does not mean to believe. One day believers will be drawn up to be with the Lord in something known as the Resurrection boys and girls. This is what Jesus was clearly talking about and what He clearly said when He says they couldn’t come to where He would be unless the Father draws them.

Either a person believes of their own ability or God makes them self aware of the faith He forced them into. Maybe that is a better dichotomy for you?

The point being made with Romans 13:11 was that “we believed” and it was okay. Also, in John 9:35-38 the man says “I believe”. I wanted you to see that there is nothing wrong with saying “I believed” as it is used in scripture without it being considered a sin. If someone were to ask why I was saved, it is because I believed and God saved me.

There’s a lot of people who don’t understand John 6:25-71. Maybe you can help! How did you determine that the word “come” shouldn’t really mean to move toward something?

“I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world. When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you? What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?”
‭‭John‬ ‭6:51, 61-62‬

If Jesus came down from Heaven and ascended back up, how are we going to move toward Him unless we also ascend? Do you think this could be a reference to the Resurrection?
