    The Wrath Of God

    ("Fitted for destruction")


    The question=

    What does the koine katartízō from katá mean?

    The Answer=

    To render i.e to fit, sound, complete.

    To mend (what has been broken or rent) to repair.

    To repair what has been broken or rent.

    To complete.

    To fit out, equip, put in order, arrange, adjust.

    To fit or frame for one’s self.

    To prepare for one’s self.

    To strengthen, perfect, complete, make one what he ought to be.

    To make one what he aught to be

    Are our broadest hopes broad enough? Shall there be a nook or abyss, in all the universe of God, finally unlightened by the Cross? Shall there be a sin, or sorrow, or pain unhealed? Is the very universe, is creation in all its extent, a field wide enough for the Son of God?

    In preaching the Gospel of Gods Grace its quite appropriate to proclaim that this saving grace was given to Gods elect in Christ before the world began 2 Tim 1:9

    9 Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,

    The word purpose here refers to Gods purpose of election Rom 9:11

    (For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth)


    ​This grace given in Christ to some was unconditional, for it was given to them before the world began and before they were born having not yet doing neither good or evil !
    "... I have my own private opinion that there is no such a thing as
    preaching Christ and him crucified, unless you preach what now-a-days is
    called Calvinism. I have my own ideas, and those I always state boldly. It is
    a nickname to call it Calvinism; Calvinism is the gospel, and nothing else."

    So when preaching the Gospel of Gods Grace, and understanding that the saved are saved by Grace Eph 2:5,8 it cant be divorced from the very fact that this saving Grace was given to the saved before the world began 2 Tim 1:9

    Amen to both parts !

    The Gospel of God's Grace declares His Irresistible Sovereign Grace, Purposed and Given by Him discriminately to all the ones He Chose In Union with their Head Christ Jesus to have forgiveness of sins; before they ever come to exist in time to do any good or evil. So what they do, or do not do Rom. 9:11, was never a factor in God's Purpose of Election. For they were already Saved and Called before the world began !
    My soul thirsts for God, the God Who Lives Forever:
    when shall I be brought in to see His Face? -Psalm 42:2
