But there are some of you who do not believe.” For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were who did not believe, and who it was that would betray Him. 65
And He was saying, “For this reason I have said to you, that no one can come to Me unless it has been granted him from the Father.”
Jesus answered and said, “This voice has not come for My sake, but for your sakes. 31
Now judgment is upon this world; now the ruler of this world will be cast out. 32
And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw
all men to Myself.”
The Greek word translated “draw” is helkuo, which means “to drag” (literally or figuratively). Clearly, this drawing is a one-sided affair. God does the drawing to salvation; we who are drawn have a passive role in the process. There is no doubt that we respond to His drawing us, but the drawing itself is all on His part.
Helkuo is used in John 21:6
to refer to a heavy net full of fish being dragged to the shore. In John 18:10
we see Peter drawing his sword, and in Acts 16:19
helkuo is used to describe Paul and Silas being dragged into the marketplace before the rulers. Clearly, the net had no part in its being drawn to the shore, Peter’s sword had no part in being drawn, and Paul and Silas did not drag themselves to the marketplace. The same can be said of God’s drawing of some to salvation. Some come willingly, and some are dragged unwillingly, but all eventually come, although we have no part in the drawing. got questions

But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will
of man, but of God
When they heard this, they quieted down and glorified God, saying, "Well then, God has granted
to the Gentiles also the repentance that leads to life."
“as many as had been appointed
to eternal life believed.”
even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive
together with Christ—by grace you have been saved—
For it has been granted
to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe in him
, but also to suffer for him,
And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive
together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses,
He saved us
, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit,
2 Timothy 2:25
Opponents must be gently instructed, in the hope that God will grant them repentance
leading them to a knowledge of the truth,
Of his own will
he brought us forth by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.
1 Peter 1:3
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us
to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
There are many other scriptures to add to these but this should be enough to suffice that Salvation as the Bible declares in many places is of, by and through the Lord alone, not man. God is the One who is active causing all the things in the OP title.
hope this helps !!!
