Let us ever seek grace to live by the rule of the gospel we preach, honoring God in all things; but do not imagine that you can preach the gospel by the way you live. — You can only preach the gospel by declaring it.

The world did not see Christ in Christ and did not see holiness in the Holy One, but crucified him as a vile and wicked man. Don’t ever imagine that the world will see Christ or holiness in you.

Don’t ever attempt to show the world that you are a Christian, or that you are righteous, or that you are godly, or even that you are different from others. Lost people cannot see godliness.

The works by which Abraham and Rahab showed their faith (James 2:21-25) were works seen by no one except God. Even so, the works by which we show our faith are works seen by God alone. Others may benefit from them, but God alone sees them, and sees them as works of faith.

Show your faith by your works, as God the Holy Ghost teaches us to do (James 2:18); but don’t ever attempt show your faith to men. They can’t see it.

Let us seek grace to live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present evil world, to live as sinners saved by the grace of God, to live for God and to the glory of God; but let us never attempt to show the world that we are Christians. The show of religion our Savior expressly forbids (Matthew 6:5-18).

God declares things to be what they are manifestly made to be before he makes them to be what he makes them to be (Romans 4:17).

God enriches his saints by poverty, strengthens them by weakness, makes them healthy by sickness, and lifts them up by abasing them.

The beginning and end of the faithful pastor’s work is to know Christ and to make him known. To that great work God’s servant must give himself entirely, and delights to do so.
The only way to discern whether something is of God or of Satan is to determine whether it is the truth or a lie (John 8:44). Are the following statements true or false?
1) God does not love everyone savingly.
2) Jesus did not die for everyone.
3) God hates sinners.
4) The words “all,” “world,” “whomsoever” and “anyone” refer only to the elect within the ranks of the Jews and the Gentiles.
5) The unregenerate cannot hear, understand or respond to the preaching of the Gospel and hence only the elect are regenerated first (monergistically) and given the gift of faith before they can believe and respond to the Gospel.
6) God finds pleasure in his sovereign decree to send the non-elect to hell.
If these are all true, then it comes form God. But, if they are lies, they must of a necessity come from Satan.

No, the statements are NOT true!!! What does the Bible say? Matthew 11:28, 2nd Peter 3:9, and Ezekiel 33:11 and others say that God loves us ALL! So, why the question? The Bible is the Truth!
Does God love all of those whom He placed into hell because they rejected His Son?
Does God love all those who continue to reject Him unto death? Does God love all those who hate His Son?
Does God love all people, yet He failed to save those who are in hell?
Are all people saved?
Does God love Esau?
(Malachi 1:2-3) “I have loved you,” says the LORD. But you say, “How have you loved us?” “Is not Esau Jacob’s brother?” declares the LORD. “Yet I have loved Jacob but Esau I have hated. I have laid waste his hill country and left his heritage to jackals of the desert.”
(Romans 9:13) As it is written, “Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated.”
The verses you have quoted viz. Matthew 11:28, 2nd Peter 3:9, and Ezekiel 33:11 and others, do not say that God loves all people. What those verses do say, is that God loves all people who believe on His Son!
Ephesians 1:4 reads
According as HE has chosen us in HIM before the fondation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before HIM.
If we are looking for the TRUTH the we must submit to the WORD written above and acknowledge that Born Again Christians are chosen in JESUS by JESUS even before the creation of this world.
Yes we were chosen and billions of satanists were not and are going to hell.
This is à mystery from GOD and must submit to GOD’s mysteries without trying to submit the WORD of GOD to natural reasoning.
This said, CALVIN was a satanist for à different raison: he tried to replace our Christian Liberty by law. À gun smoke proof of an illuminatis
Rev. Apostle Joseph TOUBI
Thank you for commenting, and for sharing a very important passage of Scripture with us. The doctrine held within that passage is imperative to grasp, for those who wish to contend for the Faith and to understand the doctrine of salvation.
I agree with your following statement:
Calvin stood immovable on the doctrines of grace alone, through faith alone in Christ alone. Calvin spoke clearly and strongly against the upholding of the law in order to seek salvation – it was central to his argument against the Roman church authorities. Most of the church of the day tried, as it still does today, to keep beleivers under the bondage of the law, yet Scripture tells us clearly that the law is of no use to the sinners who are saved by grace and faith in Jesus Christ, He who came to put and end (to fulfill) the law. Calvin wrote volumes on that exact point in attempt to overthrown the anti-scriptural false doctrines of the Roman church and other false teachings.
I find it hard to understand how you can uphold the same doctrinal stance on salvation by grace of Calvin and the Bible, while at the same time you call him a satanist. ???
