“cries out” = the present active indicative of crazo which really means to shout out with an intensive and urgent form of speaking.

Sennacherib was the king of Assyria who ruled 705-681 BC.

There was a great crisis which came to Israel because the majority of the Jews had rejected the fact that the first advent, which was promised, was being rejected by the Jews.

The present tense of the verb krazo which means to shout out with an intensive warning is what is known as a pictorial present tense which presents to the mind a picture of Isaiah’s message in the process of occurrence.

The active voice: Isaiah produced the action of the verb in a dramatic speech in a time of a national crisis.

The indicative mood is declarative representing the verbal action from the viewpoint of reality.

The theme of the book of Romans is generally the integrity of God.

The integrity of God has two parts, that is His absolute righteousness and His perfect and absolute justice.

Election, which is the subject here in Rom 9,  cannot be viewed apart from God’s integrity.

Paul anticipated the questions that his adversaries would have as they would try to say God is being unfair, and has rejected those who He had elected, namely, in context, the Jews or the children of Israel.

TIT 2:11  For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men,

1CO 2:14  But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God; for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised.

Then there is the call of God.

ROM 8:30, and whom He predestined, these He also called; and whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.ROM 11:29 for the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.

There is efficacious grace in which God the Holy Spirit takes the useless faith of the person who is spiritually dead and makes it effective for salvation.

EPH 2:8  For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that [the grace, the salvation and even the faith] is not of yourselves, it is the gift of God;

2CO 6:1-2, And working together with Him, we also urge you not to receive the grace of God in vain‑‑for He says, “At the acceptable time I listened to you, And on the day of salvation I HELPED YOU”; Behold, Now is “the acceptable time,” Behold, Now is” the day of salvation “‑‑

When you think about election, think about God’s sovereign choice, but always remember that it is very dangerous to separate His sovereign choice from His righteousness and justice and from His omniscience from all the other attributes of His deity.

Election is a subject that cannot be viewed apart from God’s integrity.

Because God is just and righteous, He will never violate your free will.

Election does not mean that God chose you to do something or be something or be someone that you have no say in the matter.

When the word of God says that God has chosen us that is not a violation of our free will.

So the question is posed, which we all have already looked at it, and it’s answered emphatically in ROM 9:14 ‑ there cannot be injustice or unrighteousness in God.

There can be no opposition or contradictions between His divine attributes.  When He elected us, He elected us according to His sovereign choice linking up with His omniscience and knowing what decisions we would make if given the proper equipment needed to understand spiritual phenomena.

The Doctrine of Election with emphasis on Repetition.

The first question that naturally arises is “Does man have a free will?”

“If man has a free will then what part does that play in the doctrine that we have begun to note, the doctrine of Election?”

Nothing is more important in our lives than Bible doctrine,  since Bible doctrine reveals the invisible assets and how to glorify God and receive our fantastic inheritance from God.

Prin-Peter was a prepared pastor and God uses prepared men and women.
to remind you, – pres-act-inf of hupominnesko which means to remind you, to bring to your remembrance, to teach you something you’ve already learned and therefore to repeat.

Prin-The purpose of repetition is to fulfill a deliberate objective which is to inculcate Bible doctrine in the believer’s soul so that the believer will remain in the PPOG.

Prin-A well taught congregation is one that has been repeated to over and over again.

Established is the perpasspart of sterizo meaning to be supported, sustained, and firmly established.

The perfect tense means the congregation has been taught in the past through repetition.

The passive voice, the believers who had positive volition toward doctrine received the action of the verb i.e. doctrinal inculcation.

The participle recognizes the PURPOSE of repeating doctrinal teaching to the congregation.

1. In eternity past the blessings placed in your escrow account called in the Bible your inheritance were made contingent upon the future performance of each believer.

2. Spiritual maturity is the result of doctrines being repeated over and over again to the congregation, and spiritual maturity is the place that the believer graduates from.

For Heaven will reward soul winners, DAN 12:3. Heaven will reward humble servants, MAT 10:42. Heaven will reward faithful stewards, MAT 25:23. Heaven will reward those who give, LUK 6:35.

Heaven will reward those who produce divine good, ROM 2:10. Heaven will reward those who are persecuted, MAT 5:11-12. Heaven will reward those who suffer un-deservingly,  2TI 2:12.

Heaven will reward those who master the O.S.N., 1CO 9:25. Those who love His appearing, 2TI 4:8. Those who endure temptations,
JAM 1:12. The faithful pastor teacher, 1PE 5:4.

Spiritual failure is brought in the scriptures such as in MAT 7:26-27; building upon the wrong foundation.

MAT 7:26-27,  “And everyone who hears these words or doctrines of mine, and does not act upon them, will be like a foolish man, who built his house upon the sand. And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and burst against that house; and it fell, and great was its fall.”

Spiritual failure is brought in MAT 17:16 as not being able to perform that which God has given the opportunity to perform (equal privilege, equal opportunity).

EPH 2:10, For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

LUK 14:30 – Spiritual failure is revealed by starting but not being able to finish.

In HEB 4:6, refusing to enter into God’s rest.

The main cause for spiritual loss is ignorance, 2PE 1:8.

Spiritual loss related to sin, JER 5:25,  “your iniquities have turned these away, and your sins have withheld good from you”

In MAT 25:27, spiritual loss results from not using your spiritual gift or talent.

In MAR 8:36 spiritual loss results from worldliness, “For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul”?

This is why some believers have the most fantastic blessings in time while other believers are discontent, filled with self-pity, filled with self-induced misery, and constantly off balanced from divine discipline.

He said this to the one described in 2CO 8:9  For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich.

This is the reason why some believers enter the eternal state very rich at the Bema seat and others, at the bema seat, very poor.

Being poor in eternity means having a resurrected body in eternity, and that’s all.

The spiritually rich are those believers who receive the distribution of their fantastic inheritance for time and eternity.

The spiritually poor are those believers who, as losers in the “world system”, do not receive their blessings from their inheritance, why?

Whether negative through ignorance or negative through cognisance it all adds up to the same thing….a loser in time and a loser in eternity.

By teaching expository teaching, which is verse by verse teaching that causes you to suddenly discover that the apostle Paul, Peter, John, James, the human writers of the N.T., all under the ministry of God the Holy Spirit repeated doctrines.

Why? REV 4:11  “Worthy art Thou, our Lord and our God, to receive glory”

Prin-The teaching of Bible doctrine repetitiously brings glory to Christ not to the communicator.
“to stir you up” is the pres-act-inf of diegeiro which means to wake up, to arouse you, to stir up.

REV 3:2 ‘Wake up, and strengthen the things that remain, which were about to die; for I have not found your deeds completed in the sight of My God.

EPH 5:14  For this reason it says, “Awake, sleeper, And arise from the dead ones, And Christ will shine on you.”

This is a progressive present tense which signifies action in a state of progress or persistence.

Everyone resents at some time hearing something that they’ve heard a hundred times before.

This is one of the things that the apostle Paul had in mind EPH 4:1 when he said, “I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, entreat you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called,    EPH 4:2  With all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing forbearance to one another in love,  The active voice of “stir you up”, Peter produces the action of the verb through repetition.

The infinitive is an infinitive of purpose, it is the purpose of the repetition of Bible doctrine to stir you up!
“en plus the instrumental singular noun, hupomnesei which means by reminding or repeating.

Peter is about to die, and inasmuch as he is about to die, he will leave behind a legacy which is the greatest of all…the legacy of Bible doctrine.

This also dramatizes the fact that death cannot hinder or destroy the communication of Bible doctrine and the declaration of spiritual truth.

We have the fut-act-ind of spoudaso which means to be diligent, to make an effort, and to study, (2TI 2:15).

Prin-Doctrine is always available in every generation.

Second prin-The only thing that keeps a believer from doctrine is his own negative volition and his “erroneous priorities.”

He is going to emphasize the fact that it is not the “man” but the “message”!   prin-Apostles, pastors, good Bible teachers die, but Bible doctrine is permanent.

Bible doctrine is permanent and eternal.

MAT 24:35  Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words shall not pass away.

1PE 1:25  But the word of the Lord abides forever. “And this is the word which was preached to you.

prin-Every pastor who is faithful in teaching Bible doctrine will build something permanent.

The pastor’s memory is the doctrine resident in the soul of his own congregation.
