Acts 13:38-40 - William Tant

Acts 13:38-40. " Be it known unto you, therefore, men and brethren, that through this man is preached (not offered, mark,) unto you the forgiveness of sins. And by him all that believe are (vitally) justified from all things from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses. Beware, therefore, lest that come upon you which is spoken of in the prophets ; behold, ye despisers, and wonder and perish : for I work a work in your days, a work which ye shall in nowise believe, though a man declare it unto you." Here the apostle makes no offer, but gives great encouragement to believers, and a most awful warning to others : for who can read these verses without seeing eternal election, and reprobation, written as with a sunbeam. The latter doctrine is contained in the words " ye shall in nowise believe." It was such uncompromising preaching as this, which having neither offers nor proffers, proved a "savour of death unto death" to some, and a "savour of life unto life" to others, 2 Cor. ii. 15, 16.
