93. Sieve of Vanity



All men are on this earth to be sifted through the "sieve of vanity" Only the elect shall be saved. God will cause the rest to err:

Isaiah 30:28 - "And his breath, as an overflowing stream, shall reach to the midst of the neck, to sift the nations with the sieve of vanity: and there shall be a bridle in the jaws of the people, causing them to err."

Amos 9:9 - "For, lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations, like as corn is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth."

Luke 22:31 - "And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat."
