Doctrines of Grace
Total Depravity: is the total inability of man, not born of the Spirit, to do anything acceptable or good in the sight of God. (Romans 3:10-18; Romans 8:8,9).
Unconditional Election: is the selection of individuals to eternal life based entirely on God's sovereign choice, and not influenced by any works on man's part, good or bad (Romans 9:11).
Limited Atonement: (Particular Redemption); Christ died only for the elect, and by His death redeemed all for whom He died (Matthew 1:21).
Irresistible Grace: or effectual call is the calling whereby God brings the elect into a vital relationship with Himself by the quickening of the Holy Spirit (I Corinthians 1:23-24; John 6:37; I peter 5:10; Ephesians 2:1,5; I Peter 3:18).
Preservation of the Saints; all the elect of God shall be kept by God and shall be eternally saved; however, they may walk in darkness and disobedience, losing the joy of their salvation in their timely existence (John 10:27 - 29; Psalms 51:12).
Genesis 47:24 (KJV)
And it shall come to pass in the increase, that ye shall give the fifth [part] unto Pharaoh, and four parts shall be your own, for seed of the field, and for your food, and for them of your households, and for food for your little ones.
