luk 13v23 Are There Few That Be Saved
"ARE THERE FEW THAT BE SAVED?"
Sometimes people poke fun at those who preach the doctrine of Divine election, saying, "You folks believe that there are only a select few who will be saved." Well, yes, that is what we believe. Our Lord Jesus Christ said plainly, "Many are called, but few are chosen" (Matt. ). Those are the words of God himself. That settles the question. I know that in the end God's elect will be a multitude which no man can number, ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands. Who can tell how many elect infants God has mercifully taken to glory in his acts of judgment upon their ungodly parents?
Yet, at any one time, God's elect in this world are
very few, when compared with the multitudes who
perish. In the days of Noah, only Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.
This is plainly the teaching of Holy Scripture: AMONG THE MULTITUDES WHO WEAR THE NAME OF CHRIST, AND PROFESS TO BE HIS FOLLOWERS, THERE ARE ONLY A FEW WHO KNOW HIM AND ARE SAVED. THE REST ARE PERISHING UNDER THE DELUSION OF A FALSE HOPE. Hear the Word of the Lord, and be warned. Are you among the many who are perishing; or are you among the few who are chosen, the few who trust Christ alone for eternal salvation?
