Do these verses sound to you like He is trying to save everyone now or that everyone is being called at this time? Those who are being called at this time are being given eyes to see (spiritual sightedness) ears to hear and a heart that can understand (verses 14-15.)

Matthew 13:14 And in them the prophecy of Isaiah is completely filled which says, Hearing you shall hear, and by no means shall understand; and seeing you shall see, and by no means perceive,

Matthew 13:15 for the heart of this people has become thickened, and their ears are hard of hearing, and their eyes they have closed, lest they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, lest they should understand with their heart, and turn back, and I heal them.”

True conversion requires a true miracle for that to happen. Not everyone is being called at this time. Those being called now are being given eyes to see (spiritual sightedness), ears to hear and a heart that can understand. Only our Father can open a mind and a heart. On the Day of Pentecost when Our Father’s Spirit was given to the New Covenant Assembly, Peter was very plain that people must be called, and not everyone was being called at that time, nor are they today.

Acts 2:38-39

Acts 2:38 And Peter said unto them, “Repent and let each one of you be immersed in the name of Messiah for the forgiveness of sins. And you shall receive the gift of the Set-apart Spirit.

Acts 2:39 For the promise is to you, and to your children, and to all that are far off, as many as the Master our Elohim shall call.

Also, notice in verse 38 Peter says Repent. Repent means to change what you are doing, i.e. stop sinning. When the Pharisees came to John to be immersed, did he say, glad to see you – just believe, really? He said no! Who asked you to flee from the wrath to come – first bring forth fruit meet for repentance?

Matthew 3:7-8

Matthew 3:7 seeing many of the Pharisees and Sadducee’s coming to his immersion, he said to them, “Brood of adders!” Who warned you to flee from the wrath?

Matthew 3:8 Bear, therefore fruits worthy of repentance,

The basic Doctrines of the Renewed Covenant Assembly are found in Hebrews 6:1 & 2. Yes, you must be a believer and you have to repent of dead works. What are dead works? Sin is dead works.

 Hebrews 6:1 Therefore having left the word of the beginning of the Messiah, let us go on to perfection: not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of belief toward Yah,

Hebrews 6:2 Of the doctrine of immersions, and of laying on of hands, and of the resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. Yes, you must believe, but you also must repent of dead works. What are dead works? Sin is dead works. So, we must stop sinning.
