Whosoever Will May Come! #195

Dr Morris makes a clear statement from scripture; Whosoever will may come.
I might add these scriptures, God desires all people to be saved, not wishing any to perish:
1 Timothy 2:3 This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.
Henry Luke

Whosoever Will! By Henry M. Morris Ph.D
Institute for Creation Research (ICR) Days Of Praise January 15, 2016 http://www.icr.org/article/21813

“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” (Revelation 22:17).

One could not imagine a more clear cut invitation to receive God’s free gift of eternal life than this final climactic invitation of the Bible. Anyone who is thirsting for the water of life may come and drink freely, for Jesus said, “If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink” (John 7:37).

Whosoever will may come! “There is no respect of persons with God” (Romans 2:11, plus about seven other references-see notes at bottom), and the Scriptures abound with “whosoever” assurances. “Whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). “Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:13). “Whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die” (John 11:26). “Whosoever believeth in Him shall receive remission of sins” (Acts 10:43). “Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God” (I John 4:15).

“Jesus Christ the righteous: . . . is the propitiation . . . for the sins of the whole world” (I John 2:1,2). Therefore, “by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life” (Romans 5:18).
Such promises as these (and many more in the word of God) make it very clear that the substitutionary death of Christ is sufficient to “(take) away the sin of the world” (John 1:29), that salvation and eternal life are offered as a free gift of God’s grace to anyone who will accept it, and that anyone who will may come! It is only the voluntary act of our own wills that is required, but there are many of whom Jesus must say: “Ye will not come to me, that ye might have life” (John 5:40). HMM

Note: “God shows no partiality” additional scripture:

Galatians 6: 6 God shows no partiality

Ephesians 6: 9 And masters, do the same things to them, and give up threatening, knowing that both their Master and yours is in heaven, and there is no partiality with Him.

Deuteronomy 10: 17 For the LORD your God is the God of gods and the Lord of lords, the great, the mighty, and the awesome God who does not show partiality

Acts 10:34 Peter said: “I most certainly understand now that God is not one to show partiality,

Colossians 3:25 For he who does wrong will receive the consequences of the wrong which he has done, and that without partiality.

Romans 1:16  For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth;

2 Chronicles 19:17 for the LORD our God will have no part in unrighteousness or partiality
