Section 8

8. To all those for whom Christ hath purchased redemption, he doth certainly and effectually apply and communicate the same; (John 6:37,39, John 10:15–16) making intercession for them, (1 John 2:1–2, Rom. 8:34) and revealing unto them, in and by the word, the mysteries of salvation; (John 15:13,15, Eph. 1:7–10, John 17:6) effectively persuading them by his Spirit to believe and obey, and governing their hearts by his word and Spirit; (John 14:16, Heb. 12:2, 2 Cor. 4:13, Rom. 8:9,14, Rom. 15:18–19, John 17:17) overcoming all their enemies by his almighty power and wisdom, in such manner, and ways, as are most consonant to his wonderful and unsearchable dispensation. (Ps. 110:1, 1 Cor. 15:25–26, Mal. 4:2–3, Col. 2:15)
