The Infallibility of God’s Purpose

(1834 - 1892)In every event of Providence, God has a purpose.

The calamities of earthquake, the devastations of storm, the
destructions of war, and all the terrible catastrophes of plague,
have only been co-workers with God — slaves compelled to
tug the ‘galley of the divine purpose’ across the sea of time.
From every evil, good has come; and the more the evil has
accumulated, the more has God glorified himself in bringing
out at last his grand, his everlasting design.

God has only one purpose, for all history is but one.

There are many scenes, but it is one drama;
there are many pages, but it is one book;
there are many leaves, but it is one tree.
There are many lords and many rulers,
yet is there but one empire, and God the only Potentate.

C. H. Spurgeon (1834 – 1892)

About Greg Coleman

I am a Particular Baptist who affirms the absolute sovereignty of the triune Godhead in all things. The fullness of the Godhead dwells in the God-man Jesus Christ. He is the Creator, Sustainer, Redeemer, Disposer and Judge of all that ever was, is now or ever shall be. Jesus Christ is the only mediator between God and men. He was made to be sin for his people and saved them from their sins by his substitutionary, sacrificial death on the cross thereby satisfying the justice and wrath of God against them. The sufficiency of his death to the satisfaction of God’s justice is proven by his physical resurrection from the dead and enthronement in glory at the right hand of the Father. Jesus Christ is coming again to judge the living and the dead. Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved.
