The Holy Spirit desires to work faith in everyone, who hears the Gospel, but nevertheless all people do not believe. Those, who to the end resist God’s Word and the Holy Spirit, are damned by their own fault.
Ezek. 33:11: As I live, saith the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn away from his way and live.

Hos. 13:9: O Israel, thou hast destroyed thyself; but in Me is thine help.
2 Thess. 3:2: All men have not faith.
Ps. 109:17: As he loved cursing, so let it come unto him; as he delighted not in blessing, so let it be far from him. (Said of Judas Iscariot).
Heb. 4:2: For unto us was the Gospel preached, as well as unto them; but
the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.
