Summary: A quick look at the word "Whosoever" and is application to our Salvation.
I am a Whosoever
Whosoever is used throughout the New Testament 93 times, and implies anyone and everyone. You are an anyone, I am an anyone, it is an all-inclusive term, and leaves no one out. Anyone and everyone that hears come, anyone and everyone that thirsts come, anyone and everyone that wants can take of the water of life freely. The Spirit and the bride are calling us, and saying come, but they won’t force us to drink. We are given a free will, but because we’re given a free will, we can choose to partake of life or we can choose to partake of death. If we make no choice at all, we have chosen death by default, because we have not chosen life. The ultimate responsibility is ours, and our future eternity will be a result of our decision. (Mark Baker)
WHOSOEVER is a Holy Spirit inspired word that embraces all and touches all.
It lays its hand upon every man and says, *You are included.*
>The world is made up of "whosoevers." By what stretch of the imagination can you exclude someone, for everyone is a whosoever.
>To exclude anyone is to do violence to the Word of God.
>The word “whosoever” means….any one, any person, who, so and everyone.
>That means that there is NOT a certain group of people that can and will be saved.
>This word means exactly what it says, ANYONE can be saved.
>No matter your background, what you have done, where you came from, what color you
are, who did what to you, what you did to your self, it doesn’t matter, Christ can save
all and has saved all that called upon His name.
>The old song goes something like this “Jesus paid it all, All to him I owe, sin had made
a crimson stain, and He washed it white as snow”
>He and He alone can take care of our sins. And He did.
Salvation works in three (3) steps, here they are…
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
A. We must know who we are calling on…
>No one else can give you this Salvation, no one!
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
>I am sorry if that messes up everything you have been taught, but there it is!
>Not by Mohammad, Not by Confucius, Not by Jim Jones, Not by Buddha, none of them
can get you to heaven, save Christ and Christ alone!
Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.
Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure:
For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
>The apostle here teaches that salvation is actually limited to those who believe.
For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.
>As all have been purchased by his blood so all may believe; and consequently all may
be saved. Those that perish, perish through their own fault.
