There were only 11 people saved from death and hell, out of the untold thousands from Adam to Hoah, fro
Noah and his family, and lot and his two daughters.
But when we look at this happening more closely, we understand that the total was really only 1.
“NOAH” was declared to be “perfect in his generations, finding grace in the eyes of the Lord”.
His family was saved because of His Righteousness.
And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; (FOR THEE HAVE I SEEN RIGHTEOUS) before me in this generation.
For Noah having not the law, did by nature the things contained in the law, he therefore, having not the law, became a law unto himself:
Coming now to the overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah, we find it wasn’t because of anything Lot did which saved his life.
The wife of Lot turned back and died, the sons in law of Lot chose to stay in the city and died, only his daughters survived with him.
Even at that last moment they didn’t seek God.
And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain, that (GOD REMEMBERED ABRAHAM), and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when he overthrew the cities in the which Lot dwelt.
Therefore from these two stories, we see that from all the people who could have chosen to seek after God none but Noah did.
Noah sought the Lord years before God told him of the events which would befall the inhabitants of the earth.
But no one else felt so inclined, it just seems odd, that given (THE FREE CHOICE SCENARIO), it seems as though there would have been more.
Then as far as Lot was concerned, he was saved out of the cities, because God remembered Abraham, Lot wasn’t even saved because of his own life and decisions.
The conclusion is.
If the Doctrine of Predestination were true, God would have Predestinated more people than just the one man NOAH.
If the Doctrine of Free Choice were true, isn’t it logical to believe, more people would have chosen to seek after God, than just the one man NOAH.
Thirdly, with the Doctrine of Free Choice in play, why did it take so long for you personally to come to Christ, why did God have to draw you by His Spirit, and shower His Grace upon you, rather than you seeking after it, that is of course with the understanding you had Free Choice all along.
Some have said.
“People have freedom of choice, but this doesn’t mean that people are equally inclined to go either way”.
Isn’t it strange though, that with this Freedom of Choice, no one ever comes to Christ until they have been drawn by God Himself.
The Bible says In the absence of the moving of God’s Spirit, people are not going to be saved.
No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
In conclusion, it sounds like, 99% of the people were inclined to go one way, and only 1% chose God.
This isn’t Predestination, but it isn’t Freedom of Choice either.
We need to wake up to the actual truth of the matter.
Our sin nature deprives us of Free Choice.
