“The whosoever wills are the chosen ones, and the whosoever wont’s are the non-elect.” -J. Vernon McGee
This is the order in Scripture. The Word of God is proclaimed, heard, or read, the Spirit of God sanctifies – convicts the sinner, bringing him to the place where he desires to be saved, and is ready to receive Christ. Believing the gospel he is justified by faith. -H.A. Ironside
The Holy Spirit sanctifies us positionally when we respond to the gospel and are saved (we are forever “in Christ”). He sanctifies us progressively as we yield to Him and are transformed into Christlikeness (Philippians 1:6). We will be saved perfectly when we receive the reward of our faith and stand in the presence of Jesus Christ. -Mark Powell
