When this preaching is done, everyone can, and should, hear it. For the gospel is to be preached to every creature. But as our Lord constantly proclaimed, it is only those ‘with ears’ who can effectually hear it for the revelation of God to the salvation of their souls. Mark 4:9 And he said unto them, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. For it is the responsibility of the true church to broadcast the gospel to everyone, without any exclusion. But it is solely the work of the Holy Spirit to make effectual application to the soul’s of God’s elect.
