Election riveted in the heart of Gods people

EVERY CHILD OF GOD IS SOON BROUGHT TO SEE THE TRUTH OF ELECTION

J.C. Philpot

All God s people, sooner or later, are brought to this point -to see that God has a “people,” a “peculiar people,” a people separate from the world, a people whom he has “formed for himself, that they should show forth his praise.” Election, sooner or later, is riveted in the hearts of God s people. And a man that lives and dies at enmity against this blessed doctrine, lives and dies in his sins; and if he dies in that enmity, he will be damned in that enmity.

Every child of God is brought, sooner or later, to see that God has a people; and the longing desire of every living soul is to be manifested as one of that people. There are no cavillings against election, after God has broken a man down to nothing.

There may be many cavillings against it, until we are stripped of all; but when a man is stripped of all, made a beggar, a bankrupt, a pauper, a poor needy insolvent, with a huge debt, and nothing wherewith to pay, then election is made manifest in that man s conscience; because he feels that unless God has chosen him from eternity, he will never see His face in glory.
