Effectual / Particular Atonement

Is Christ enough?

Posted by admin on September 16, 2017 at 8:06 am

Is Christ enough? Christ is the issue, isn’t He? I find it revealing that the point of Calvinistic theology which is most controverted is “Limited Atonement”, the one point of the five that specifically deals with Christ. Not matter what the controversy; it will eventually get back to this point: Is the sacrifice of Jesus [...]

God’s High Priest Some time ago I spoke to a man who told me he was a member of the “Order of Melchizedek”. He seemed to be very proud of the fact that his group had discovered some deep mystery that was known only to themselves. Their leaders had written some books that gave them [...]

God has made this same Jesus Acts 2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ. I hear people speak of a Jesus who is trying his best to save everyone, for it is contrary to his will for [...]

Acts 1: 1-5 What our Lord did in the forty days between the tomb and his ascension is what our Lord is doing right now.  His disciples were scattered but he gathered them to himself.  He showed them many proofs convincing them he is alive and well.  By the use of those who saw him [...]

Are we really dead to sin.

Posted by admin on September 19, 2015 at 7:15 am

Are we really dead to sin. The word reckon is the same word that is translated impute or account. The sins of the elect were imputed to Christ. They became His. He became guilty before God. He was actually made sin. And He really died for the sins that had become His. He paid the [...]

Christ Died in Place of His People

Christ Died in Place of His People (Matthew 27:21-26) Put your place in that cell with Barabbas. He hears his name shouted by the crowd. Then he hears, “Crucify him, crucify him!” He is convinced he is a dead man walking. The jailor opens the door to his cell. But instead of dragging him to [...]

Substitution Is The Gospel

Posted by admin on April 11, 2015 at 11:05 am

Substitution Is The Gospel Todd Nibert Particular redemption. Limited Atonement. Definite Atonement. Effectual Atonement. These are all words used to describe the atoning work of Christ on the cross. He died for a particular people. His intention to save was limited to the elect. His atonement was with a definite purpose for a definite people. [...]

DOCTRINES OF GRACE OR DOCTRINE OF GRACE?

Posted by admin on March 28, 2015 at 10:32 am

If total depravity, unconditional election, limited atonement, irresistible grace, and the perseverance of the saints make up what is called the doctrines of grace, they are just that: doctrines. It is not without significance that every time the word “doctrines” is used in Scripture, it always refers to false doctrine. Doctrines do not grip my [...]

God chose an elect people before the foundation of the world

Posted by admin on March 28, 2015 at 10:28 am

God chose an elect people before the foundation of the world and gave them to Christ to redeem. Christ became what they were, yet without sin and lived perfectly and died in their place, being made sin for them. The Spirit of God called and caused them to hear the preaching of the Gospel. He [...]
