"Irresistible grace" is a term which applies only to the pre-determined elect of God. Those predestined were chosen before God created the world and they are the apostles and prophets. They're also the "few" when Jesus said, "Many are called, but few are chosen."

The elect are all true believers, not just the prophets and apostles.

"Irresistible grace" does not apply to the many who are called unto salvation. For them, they can resist the calling of the Holy Spirit, the witnessing of believers and the testimony of Scripture.

In fact, "irresistible grace" refers to the grace by which we are made anew, are convicted of our sins, believe on Christ, and repent. That grace IS irresistible, and only the elect receive it.


I tell you, this man went down to his house justified.
