All natural unregenerate men, descendants of Adam, in time, are under the wrath of God by nature and are known as children of wrath within the family of Satan; but God promises to save His people; promising to remove them from the family of Satan. (Romans 1:18) (Ezekiel 35:26) (Ephesians 2:4-10) (Matthew 1:21) (Ephesians 1:5) (Matthew 16:18) (John 8:44) (Genesis 2:17)
The children of promise are those He foreknew and unconditionally beloved from the eternal sense. (Romans 8:28-39) (Romans 9) (Matthew 1:21)
Temporally, we have the unregenerate elect of God (Ephesians 2:3 )in time under the wrath of God until the point of generation from above, (John 3:3,5,8) at which time they are made alive to God; effectually put in Christ and given a new spirit and heart (Ephesians2:10) (Ezekiel 36:26), (Ezekiel 11:19-20)unto belief of the Gospel of Christ (John 5:21) when they become new creations in (2 Corinthians 5:17) Christ Jesus unto good works which God has prepared beforehand that they should walk in them (Ephesians 2:10).
The Children of Promise, those that receive Him, then, have the authority to be become The children of God who were fore-loved, foreknown and foreordained to become the children of God in the eternal sense from all eternity. (Romans 8:28-30)
17 but of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil you may not eat, for in the day of the eating of it, dying you shall die.
8 And they heard the sound of Jehovah God walking up and down in the garden at the breeze of the day. And the man and his wife hid themselves from the face of Jehovah God in the middle of the trees of the garden.
If Adam and Eve ran from God and hid themselves after receiving personal visits from YHWH, will a spiritually dead natural man ever come on his own?
Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin my mother conceived me.
Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
18 For God’s wrath is revealed from Heaven on all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, the ones holding back the truth in unrighteousness,
For you are not a God enjoying wickedness; evil shall not live with You.
5 The boasters shall not set themselves before Your eyes. You hate all workers of iniquity.
6 You shall destroy those speaking lies; Jehovah will despise the man of blood and deceit.
For everyone practicing wickedness hates the Light, and does not come to the Light, that his works may not be exposed.
10 according as it is written, “There is not a righteous one, not even one!”
11 “There is not one understanding, there is not one seeking God.”
12 All turned aside; together they became worthless, not one is doing goodness, not so much as one!” LXX-Psa. 13:1-3
13 “Their throat is a tomb being opened;” “they used deceit with their tongues; the poison of asps is under their lips;
14 whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness.
15 Their feet are swift to shed blood;
16 ruin and misery are in their ways;
17 and they did not know a way of peace;
18 there is no fear of God before their eyes.” LXX-Psa. 5:10; 139:4; 9:28; Isa. 59:7, 8; Psa. 35:2; MT-Psa. 14:1-3; 5:9; 140:3; 10:7; Isa. 59:7, 8; Psa. 36:1
19 ¶ But we know that as many things as the law says, it says to the ones within the law, so that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world be accountable to God.
20 Because by works of law not will be justified all flesh before Him, for through law is full knowledge of sin. Psa. 143:2
among whom we also all conducted our- selves in times past in the lusts of our flesh, acting out the wills of the flesh and of the understandings, and were by nature the children of wrath, even as the rest.
Romans 2: 5
But according to your hardness and your impenitent heart, you are treasuring up to yourself wrath in the day of wrath, and revelation of a righteous judgment of God.
The one believing into the Son has everlasting life; but the one disobeying the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.
Romans 1:18) (Ephesians 2:3) (John 3:36) (Psalms 5:4-6) (Genesis 2:17) (John 3:20)(2 Corinthians 4:3-4) (John 8:44)
(Psalms 51:5) (Jeremiah 13:23)
(1 Corinthians 1:18) (Ephesians 2:1-2)
All workers of iniquity are hated by God.
All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God and do not have a righteousness sufficient to please God. Those in the flesh are not able to please God.
21 But now apart from law a righteousness of God has been revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets,
22 even the righteousness of God through faith of Jesus Christ toward all and upon all the ones believing; for there is no difference,
23 for all sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
24 being justified undeservedly by His grace through the redemption in Christ Jesus,
25 whom God set forth as a propitiation through faith in His blood, for a demon- stration of His righteousness through the passing over of the sins that had taken place before, in the forbearance of God,
26 for a demonstration of His righteousness in the present time, for His being just and justifying the one that is of the faith of Jesus.
27 Then where is the boasting? It was shut out. Through what law? Of works? No, but through a Law of faith.
(Romans 3:23) (Psalms 5:4-6) (Philippians 3:9 KJ3) (2 Corinthians 5:21) (Isaiah 45:24-25) (Romans 8:8)
The unregenerate natural man has no understanding of spiritual things and cannot accept spiritual things because they are spiritually discerned.
(1 Corinthians 2:14) (John 3:3,5,8)

The natural man must receive generation from above and be made spiritually alive by the Sovereign Will of God to see and enter into the kingdom of God
(John 3:3,5,8) (John 5:21) (John6:65)
which generates belief in the Gospel of Christ unto good works that God has prepared beforehand that they should walk in them. (Ephesians 2:10)
This generation from above brings the knowledge that their righteousness is compared to a filthy menstrual cloth.
(2 Corinthians 4:6) (Romans 10:1-4) (Ezekiel 36:26) (Luke 18:13) (Isaiah 64:6) (Isaiah 45:24)
The natural man is as able to regenerate himself and stop sinning against God as a leopard is able to change or remove his spots
(Isaiah 64:6) (John 5:24) (2 Corinthians 4:6) (Jeremiah 13:23)
The believer knows that salvation can only come by God’s mercying whom He wills conditioned solely on the atoning shed blood and imputed perfect righteousness of Jesus Christ alone . (2 Corinthians 4:6) (Luke 18:13) (Luke 23:42) ( Romans 4)
No one is good except one, God.
Jesus Christ, The Word was with God in beginning and was God and the Word became flesh and tabernacled among us. (John 1:1-3,14)
He created all things. There wasn’t one thing that was created that wasn’t created by Him. He is before all things.
God chooses unconditionally those persons He promised to save out of the children of wrath and adopts them and takes them out of the family of Satan and makes them a new creation upon regeneration .
They pass from death to life and are no longer enemies of God. They have the right to become the children of God; the ones believing into His name.
