Default To you it has been granted to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been granted. Limited Atonement (heaven mysteries gospel grace salvation)


in the context of Matthew 13:1-23 Jesus presents the long remembered
parable of the sower. His disciples come to Him and ask... " Why do
You speak to them in parables? "

and then comes one of most wonderful passages in Scripture which
compares to what has been called the Perseverance of the Saints, with
the Son of God's reply... " To you it has been granted to know the
mysteries of the kingdom of heaven. "

the unfathomable riches of the Word of God warms the heart of every
true believer as he discover's, through the indwelling Holy Spirit,
" what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know
the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled
up to all the fulness of God. " Ro. 3:14-19

Praise be to our Heavenly Father to grace us with such understanding
" to know the love of Christ " towards us, who believe by the will of
God. Jn. 1:12,13; Acts 13:48.

but the Savior goes on to say... " but to them it has not been
granted, " and explains why it has not been granted in vs. 13-15.

this being the case; this being the unchangeable purpose of God
towards His creation, we are full of thankfulness that we were chosen
out of the world by the Almighty's free grace and love from our
rebellion against Him. Eph. 2:1-12

yet, God has so purposed that not all shall be so chosen by Him.
Jn. 10:11 cp. Jn. 10:26.

how is it then that the Universalists teach that Christ died for
everyone all the while the Holy Scriptures say to the contrary ?

that God makes a wide and clear distinction between the saved and
the lost throughout all of Scripture which these do not see nor
acknowledge ?

these are clearly the proponents of the devils gospel and their
glamorous words appeal only to " itching ears. " seeing that the
foundation of their gospel speaks of a Savior who failed at Calvary...
of an impotent God who sent His only Begotten Son to procure salvation
for everyone yet the pardon goes only to those who've made some
decision of their own ' free ' will... a salvation for the smart
only... placing conditions on free grace.

these blaspheme the very God they pretend to worship with a belief
system which is designed to give man the glory for his good work of
self-redemption... they show their repulsion for God this way.
