God's Will
« on: July 21, 2014, 06:47:41 AM »
Isa 43:11  I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour.
Isa 43:12  I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, that I am God.
Isa 43:13  Yea, before the day was I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who shall let it? ...
Isa 43:25  I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.


I guess that should put to rest the idea of free will.

Doesn't that just take a burden off your shoulders? His salvation is His will, we can just rest in that assurance and enjoy the comfort and peace that brings.  :dsunny:

Absolutely! .."lest any should boast!" ...all His will,. His choosing, His election..

..and all His doing..!!
2nd Advent ='s ?
 (1)Trumpets + (2)DOA + (3)Tabernacles = PROOF of UR & God's utter Perfection.
[(1)Rev 16:14,15 & 16 too + (2)the 2nd Resurrection & Grt Day of Judgment/Review + (3)Rev 21:3 & all things new]

Who, after experiencing being resurrected, etc. isn't going to "believe"? And repent? and thus have their names written in the Book of "Life"?

About the fall, thus unveiling, of man's empires (built on sand) - there's no dates, but imo, there is a calendar, a counting backwards, & it uses concrete, landmark signs.

No particular verse cut out of the whole cloth "puts to rest" the idea of free will :o)

If I quote, "Choose ye this day whom ye shall serve" and then follow it by saying, "I guess that puts to rest calling and election"- such a thing would be ridiculous, and of course- I believe in calling and election. I just believe that stewardship involves a measure of free will and that is how we learn to become "sons" of God- so that we can set the whole creation free into the "glorious liberty of the children of God". The reason the subject has been debated so hotly for 1500 years is because it is NOT as simple as anything that can be defined by one or two particular verses.

It is really all about love anyway.  :dsunny:

Mic 7:8  Thou dost not rejoice over me, O mine enemy, When I have fallen, I have risen, When I sit in darkness Jehovah is a light to me.
