And where I go you know, and the way you know.

Thomas says to Him, Lord, we do not know where You go, and how can we know the way?

And then I will declare to them, I never knew you, “ depart from Me, (the ones) working lawlessness!

Were you foreknown (fore-loved) and unconditionally chosen by God before the foundation of the world?

Do you believe the Gospel of Christ?

Do you believe that God promises to save His people from their sin conditioned solely on the atoning shed blood of Jesus Christ and His imputed righteousness alone without any contribution from the persons He represented in His death and perfect life lived? Matthew 1:21 Matthew 16:16-18 John 6:37-44,65 Romans 1:16-17 Romans 3 Romans 4 2 Corinthians 4:6 Ephesians 2:8-10 Ephesians 1:4 Romans 8:28-30 Romans 9:11

This gives God all the glory of salvation from regeneration to final glory; while making God a just God, a justifier and savior.

Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God satisfied the justice of God by being His people’s substitute in payment of their sin and by being their substitute in a perfect life lived in thought, word and deed; while imputing His righteousness to their account.

Christ did not come to make redemption possible; but to effectually redeem the people He promised to save from their sin. God does all that He desires to do. Jesus Christ confirmed this while on the cross when He said “ It is finished” He took away the wrath of God on His people. They will not be punished in hell for their sin.

Mark 16:16 The (one) believing (the Gospel)and being baptized will be saved; but the (one) not believing will be condemned

In Revelation 20:15 those whose names are found written in the Book of Life will not be thrown into the Lake of Fire.

All of God’s chosen people will sometime in their life come to the knowledge of the truth and be saved ; then, they will live their life in obedience to Him because it is God who is working the willingness and the doing in them for the sake of His good pleasure. We love him because He first loved us Philippians 1:6, 2:13 1 John 4:19
