God's Grace Is Not Sufficient For The Wicked But The Righteous And Sinner That Repents * God's grace was sufficient for righteous Abel to be approved of God but not enough for wicked Cain. Gen 4:3-8, Matthew 23:35. * God's grace was sufficient for righteous Noah and his family to be saved from the flood, but not enough to save the wicked men on Earth. Genesis 6:5-7 (KJV) And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. Genesis 6:8-9 (KJV) But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God. Genesis 7:1 (KJV) And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation. * God's grace was sufficient for Lot, the nephew of righteous Abraham, to be saved with his daughters, from the impending destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, but it wasn't enough to save the wicked of that land. Genesis 19:12-25, 28-30. * God's grace would have been sufficient for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah to be spared from the impending destruction had there been ten righteous men in the land, but it wasn't because the land was full of wicked men. Genesis 18:20-32 * God's grace was sufficient for the people of Nineveh because they turned away from their wicked ways, but it wouldn't have been enough had they continued in them. Jonah 1:2; 2. Jonah 3:10 (KJV) And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not. Jonah 1:2; 2. * God's grace was only sufficient to save His own people and heal their land if they repented and turned away from their wicked ways, but it wouldn't be enough if they continued in them. 2 Chronicles 7:14 (KJV) If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. * God's grace is only sufficient for the righteous and sinners who repent and turn away from their wicked ways, but it's not enough for the sinner who continues in his sins and works of iniquity. Jesus says: "I tell you... except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish." Luke 13:3 (KJV) He that has ears to hear, let him hear. God bless.
