Isaiah 55:6-7 - William Button

Mr. F. says “wicked men are commanded to seek the Lord while he may be found, and that in the character of the God of grace, promising mercy, and abundance of pardon to them that seek him, Isa. 55:6-7.—Arminians quote this passage as a proof there is a day of grace, which, if men improve, they may enjoy the favour of God; but if they let it slip, if it be once elapsed, there is no more opportunity of meeting with him. To whom Dr. Gill thus replies, “They are an exhortation to public worship, signified by seeking the Lord, and calling upon him; the time for which with the Jews was on the seventh day of the week, and with us Christians on the first, these being times in which he might be found, it became the Jews of old, and us now, to attend public ordinances, in expectation of meeting with God” (Cause of God and Truth p. 42). And this I think is a sufficient answer to Mr. F.
