Key Messages:

    What does this say about our present condition?
  1. Context previous suggests that man could not come to this decision on his own let alone with this speed and confidence; list of cons and unknowns too long. if free will was upheld, preparation was made in each case by God by various means; His influence was upon them.
  2. Man is most likely to find every reason not to put all behind and follow to who knows where for who knows how long doing who knows what.
