What kind of call are these? Effectual or general.
From a good friend and brother...."Well, you have God the Father calling everyone in Isaiah 55:1-3, Christ calling everyone in Matthew 11:28, and the Holy Spirit calling everyone in Revelation 22:17."
Isaiah 55:1-3 (New International Version)
Invitation to the Thirsty
1 "Come, all you who are thirsty,
come to the waters;
and you who have no money,
come, buy and eat!
Come, buy wine and milk
without money and without cost.
2 Why spend money on what is not bread,
and your labor on what does not satisfy?
Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good,
and your soul will delight in the richest of fare.
3 Give ear and come to me;
hear me, that your soul may live.
I will make an everlasting covenant with you,
my faithful love promised to David.
Matthew 11:28 (New International Version)
28"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
Revelation 22:17 (New International Version)
17The Spirit and the bride say, "Come!" And let him who hears say, "Come!" Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life.
