Atoning Grace: At Calvary, 2,000 years ago, all those of the eternal flock of the Father were purchased, purified and redeemed, and none else, such that when they are preemptively regenerated at the foreordained moment, they receive faith which ratifies Elective Grace and seals in their heart the awareness that they were secretly purchased 2,000 years ago.
Compatibilism: A Calvinist’s attempt to explain how Determinism and Free-Will might coexist.
Determinism: The belief that God has predetermined whatsoever comes to pass.
Elective Grace: When God sought a place for His grace, He decided to create a race of individuals to bestow His grace upon in order to demonstrate His mercy and kindness.
Irresistible Grace: Those of the eternal flock of the Father who are made preemptively Born Again in order to believe, are regenerated with a new will which finds the Gospel message irresistible.
Persevering Grace: It is the same thing as Preserving Grace. It means that for all those that God eternally wanted to be saved, that is, those eternally residing in the Father by the hidden counsel of God, are preserved in the faith so as never to fall away and endure to the end.
Predestination: For all those who eternally reside in the Father, God has predestined them to be given to His Son because God does nothing apart from His Son.
Preterition: It is the act of being left out of the will of God. It is the essence of Pass-By Calvinism.
Regenerative Grace: This is the secret new birth, that is, being made Born Again, whereby members of the eternal elect in the Father are preemptively illuminated at the appointed time with Irresistible Grace.
Revealed Will: This is God’s declaration and command for what He expects of man.
Secret Will: This is what God has secretly decided to do, known only in the hidden counsels of God.
Sovereign Grace: By Elective Grace, the eternal elect in the Father are gratuitously adopted to become sons of God by the sovereign will of God who Deterministically ordains all that comes to pass.
Temporal Grace: Since those who are spiritually dead, lying dead as a corpse, cannot raise themselves to respond to Christ, God must regenerate them by Regenerative Grace in order to believe. However, for those who have not received Persevering Grace, because they were not eternally in the Father by the hidden counsel of God, will eventually lose their Temporal Grace and fall away at the appointed time after completing their appointed task.
Total Depravity: Due to the Fall of Adam, and Original Sin, mankind is spiritually dead and lies as dead as a corpse, such that when Jesus comes knocking, they cannot hear His voice, unless God were to give him spiritual life through Regeneration in order to believe.
Total Inability: Due to the Total Depravity of fallen man in Adam, man is totally unable to respond to the Gospel’s appeal by from being illuminated by the Spirit of Regeneration.
