WPNT(i) 2 God has not rejected His people whom He foreknew. Do you not know what the Scripture says about Elijah, how he appeals to God against Israel saying: 3 “LORD, they have killed your prophets and torn down your altars; I am the only one left, and they are trying to take my life!” 4 But what does the divine response say to him? “I have reserved for myself seven thousand men who have not bowed the knee to Baal.” 5 Even so then at this present time, there is a remnant according to an election by grace. 6 Now if by grace, it is no longer from works; otherwise the grace is no longer grace. But if from works, it is no longer grace; otherwise the work is no longer work.
