Absolute, Eternal Predestination

Oh! we love the sublime doctrine of eternal, absolute predestination.

Some have doubted whether predestination is consistent with the free agency of man.

We believe that man does as he pleases, yet notwithstanding he always does as God decrees.

Man does as he wills; but God makes him do as He wills, too.

No, not only is the will of man under the absolute predestination of Jehovah; but all things, great or little, are of him.

There is nothing great or little, that is not from him.

The summer dust moves in its orbit, guided by the same hand which rolls the stars along. The dewdrops have their father, and trickle on the rose leaf as God bids them. Yes, the sear leaves of the forest, when hurled along by the tempest, have their allotted position where they shall fall, nor can they go beyond it.

In the great, and in the little, there is God working all things according to the counsel of his own will.

And though man seeks to go against his Maker, yet he cannot. Everything is ordained by God!

Unto Him who guides the stars and sparrows, who rules planets and yet moves atoms, who speaks thunders and yet whispers zephyrs, unto Him be glory!

Charles 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.

    Oh, how I love this, and how true. What little reverence we truly pay our Great and Almighty God. What a shame that so many have belittled Him, and made Him into a God who needs instead of a God who provides all that we have and makes us all that we are. Thank you,Greg, for your faithfulness to our Lord.

      My brother,
      Thank you for your comments and encouragement.
      I agree with Mr. Spurgeon and I agree with you.
      God alone knows how many who profess Christ will wake up in Hell because they are worshiping an imaginary god created in the dark forest of their own fallen mind, watered by so-call “pastors and teachers” and fertilized by the damnable traditions of their proud denominations.
      Oh that the Lord God would give them eyes to see His Glory and ears to hear His Word before it is eternally too late.

      Soli Deo Gloria!
