ALL that the Father GIVES to Me shall COME to Me
Question: Does “ All” mean every single individual without exception is being GIVEN by The Father to Jesus to COME.
Answer : No, the number is a fixed number set of “All”defined by “All” the Father gives. Proven below: the number isn’t every single individual without exception.
No one is ABLE to come unless the Father draws or ( drags) him
The Father GIVES and the Father DRAWS and They COME
The reason the term (dragged or drawn) needs to be used is because The natural man would in no way come to the True Sovereign Lord of All on his own. He cannot respond to the Truth because Natural Man is spiritually dead and has no ability to respond 1 Corinthians 2:14 Genesis 2:17 It takes a 100% act of God acting on the Will of the one hating the True Sovereign God, The God who will have mercy on some and harden others. John 3:3 3:5 3:8 Romans 9:16 9:18
He hates that God so much that he would have to be dragged according to his disgusting nature; but God does it very easily by His Spirit, changing the will of His promised people; Matthew 1:21 Romans 9:8 causing them to willfully come as little children by which no one will enter the kingdom of God unless he comes as a little child. Luke 18:17 The term of dragging is to depict the completely disgusting rebellious nature of Natural Man 1 Corinthians 2:14 Psalms 14:1-3 that has no ability to repent 2 Timothy 2:25 and come to the Lord of ALL. He is spiritually Genesis 2:17 dead.
How do we prove from scripture that the Father is only giving a finite amount of people out of Fallen humanity to Jesus and those same people represent a finite number of people that are being drawn or dragged to Jesus? The ones He chooses to show mercy and save. Romans 9:15 9:16
37 All who the Father gives to Me shall come to Me, and the one coming to Me I will not cast out, not ever,not ever,
38 for I have come down out of Heaven, not that I should do My will, but the will of Him who sent Me.
39 And this is the will of the Father sending Me, that of all that He has given Me, I shall not lose any of it, but shall raise it up in the last day
1. The Children of The Promise are the people given by the Father to Jesus that come
2. Jesus always does The Will of The Father
3. The Will of the Father is for Jesus not to lose one of the persons He, The Father, has given to Him
4. Jesus will raise them up to eternal life in the Last day
We know from Revelation 7:9 that the ones saved are gathered Jew and Gentile John 3:16 from every nation, even tribes, and peoples and languages.
Since, there are only a fixed number of people effectually saved, there must be only a fixed number of people given to Jesus by The Will of the Father that Jesus will not lose (saved) that Jesus will raise to eternal life at the last day. Therefore: the “All” in John 12:32 must be defined in light of scripture interpreting scripture. “ All” must mean I will draw “All” ( without distinction) to Me from Jew and Gentile from every nation, even tribes, peoples and languages. We know also from empirical evidence that not every individual is drawn in the slightest to Jesus or the cross and not All have even a slightest interest in the cross. We know from the Old Testament or Covenant that the heathen nations around Israel were never drawn and never had the opportunity Amos 3:2
In other words, the people He promised to save Matthew 1:21 irrespective of man’s will Romans 9:16 but by His mercy Romans 9:18 are The Children of The Promise Romans 9:8, The Elect, The chosen from before the foundation of the world Ephesians 1:4 or The Assembly of God Matthew 16:18 or All of Spiritual Israel. Romans 9:6
