Hebrews 4/12: For the Word of God [is] quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and [is] a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Many people believe that salvation depends in their work, in their behavior, in their religion, in their particular beliefs, of what they do or stop doing, but they must understand that it doesn't depend in the person to save himself or not, but exclusively in God, because "[it is] not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy" (Romans 9/16). Jesus had told in its moment: "No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day." (John 6/44) and also clearly told "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." (John 14/6)
So in the Father depends that a vessel is of mercy, if the calling, the redemption, the choice, the salvation, the adoption, the new name are given.
Romans 9/21-24: "Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour? [What] if God, willing to shew [his] wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction: And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory, Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?"
So the one seeking for the salvation without entering by the Door that is Jesus the Messiah our Lord, is a thief an a robber. John 10/1: "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber."
