Free Will? Yes and Absolutely Every Thought, Word and Action Decreed from Start to Finish By God Almighty
I had to write this quickly so forgive the unedited nature and the emotional emphasis at portions I would have later amended. Freewill is actually quite simple…man is under a Sovereign God so NOTHING CAN RISE BUT FROM HIM. We are created with an animate intelligent soul DEAD Spiritually as it is born into this world and thus only able to make decisions based in the 5 senses of flesh and according to how the character God created arises to decision as fallen. God of course created the character and all environments it passes through and sustains it ALL so He knows ALL that will happen with ALL He creates and thus He creates according to His Glorious Plan to Bring Himself the Utmost Glory…PRAISE GOD!
Romans 9:15-24 (NASB) 15 For He says to Moses, “I WILL HAVE MERCY ON WHOM I HAVE MERCY, AND I WILL HAVE COMPASSION ON WHOM I HAVE COMPASSION.” 16 So then it does not depend on the man who wills or the man who runs, but on God who has mercy. 17 For the Scripture says to Pharaoh, “FOR THIS VERY PURPOSE I RAISED YOU UP, TO DEMONSTRATE MY POWER IN YOU, AND THAT MY NAME MIGHT BE PROCLAIMED THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE EARTH.” 18 So then He has mercy on whom He desires, and He hardens whom He desires. 19 You will say to me then, “Why does He still find fault? For who resists His will?” 20 On the contrary, who are you, O man, who answers back to God? The thing molded will not say to the molder, “Why did you make me like this,” will it? 21 Or does not the potter have a right over the clay, to make from the same lump one vessel for honorable use and another for common use? 22 What if God, although willing to demonstrate His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much patience vessels of wrath prepared for destruction? 23 And He did so to make known the riches of His glory upon vessels of mercy, which He prepared beforehand for glory, 24 even us, whom He also called, not from among Jews only, but also from among Gentiles.
In this ignorant and Man Worshipping pit of human lust we call America, man cannot see that we are NOT CREATED FOR OUR PLEASURE BUT FOR GOD’s GLORY! God uses “evil” for His purposes too, to Glorify His Justice. We are given the character we have at creation of our soul and when imparted to body we are declared 100% morally accountable for our actions as individuals. We are fallen and thus all actions which rise not from faith are sin as they lack their genesis in the Righteousness of SPIRITUAL LIFE as God is Spirit …
John 4:24 (NASB) 24 “God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
Isaiah 45:7 (KJV) 7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.
God uses the EVIL HE ABSOLUTELY CREATED YOU KNOWING YOU WOULD GIVE RISE TO in your morally accountable state to glorify His Justice in the punishment of the UNREPENTENT and to Glorify his Mercy and Grace in the Elect given Spiritual Life through the granting of Christ’s Spirit to them unto Life fed by the Living Water or the Word of God….
John 3:5 (NASB) 5 Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of WATER (Living Water or Word) and the Spirit (the Holy Spirit brings the Elect the portion of Jesus’ Spirit unto LIFE spiritually from DEATH) he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
When an EVIL man acts there are 2 levels of responsibility….
1. The Man’s – This is the Responsibility for HIS HEART’s INTENT WHEN THINKING, SPEAKING or ACTING.
2. God’s – God has decreed that man’s action but FOR THE END OF HIS OWN PURPOSE OF GLORIFYING HIS JUSTICE!
Isaiah 10* completely reveals the full truth of the will of man. The Assyrian king went to destroy the kingdom of Northern Israel which was APOSTATE and God sent the King to punish them with destruction AND THAT WAS GOD’s RESPONSIBILITY of a GLORIOUS END, GLORIFYING HIS PERFECT JUSTICE ! BUT the Assyrian King went to destroy Northern Israel for BLOOD LUST, TO RAPE, TO MURDER, TO STEAL, TO GLORIFY HIMSELF and every other perverse and all American in the 19th , 20th and 21st century reason. So God damned HIM TO JUDGMENT AS WELL TO THE GLORY OF HIS JUSTICE! Thus the King was FULLY FREE TO ACT ACCORDING TO THE CHARACTER GOD CREATED AND PLACED IN HIM WITH FULL KNOWLEDGE OF WHAT HE PLANNED THAT SOUL TO DO IN ITS FALLEN STATE AND GAVE HIM FULL MORAL RESPONSIBILITY AND THE “FREEDOM TO ACT IN FULL ACCORD WITH THE CHARACTER HE WAS GIVEN. READ ISAIAH 10 and ROMANS 9 and you WILL understand Free Will for what it truly is…God is SOVEREIGN and decrees ALL including the freedom to act in accord with the character He created for you under His decree further of your 100% Moral RESPONSIBILITY. REMEMBER AMERICA …. THIS IS ABOUT GOD AND HIS GLORY …AND NEVER YOU.
Isaiah 10:1-34 (NASB) 1 Woe to those who enact evil statutes And to those who constantly record unjust decisions, 2 So as to deprive the needy of justice And rob the poor of My people of their rights, So that widows may be their spoil And that they may plunder the orphans. 3 Now what will you do in the day of punishment, And in the devastation which will come from afar? To whom will you flee for help? And where will you leave your wealth? 4 Nothing remains but to crouch among the captives Or fall among the slain. In spite of all this, His anger does not turn away And His hand is still stretched out. 5 Woe to Assyria, the rod of My anger And the staff in whose hands is My indignation, 6 I send it against a godless nation And commission it against the people of My fury To capture booty and to seize plunder, And to trample them down like mud in the streets. 7 Yet it does not so intend, Nor does it plan so in its heart, But rather it is its purpose to destroy And to cut off many nations. 8 For it says, “Are not my princes all kings? 9 “Is not Calno like Carchemish, Or Hamath like Arpad, Or Samaria like Damascus? 10 “As my hand has reached to the kingdoms of the idols, Whose graven images were greater than those of Jerusalem and Samaria, 11 Shall I not do to Jerusalem and her images Just as I have done to Samaria and her idols?” 12 So it will be that when the Lord has completed all His work on Mount Zion and on Jerusalem, He will say, “I will punish the fruit of the arrogant heart of the king of Assyria and the pomp of his haughtiness.” 13 For he has said, “By the power of my hand and by my wisdom I did this, For I have understanding; And I removed the boundaries of the peoples And plundered their treasures, And like a mighty man I brought down their inhabitants, 14 And my hand reached to the riches of the peoples like a nest, And as one gathers abandoned eggs, I gathered all the earth; And there was not one that flapped its wing or opened its beak or chirped.” 15 Is the axe to boast itself over the one who chops with it? Is the saw to exalt itself over the one who wields it? That would be like a club wielding those who lift it, Or like a rod lifting him who is not wood. 16 Therefore the Lord, the GOD of hosts, will send a wasting disease among his stout warriors; And under his glory a fire will be kindled like a burning flame. 17 And the light of Israel will become a fire and his Holy One a flame, And it will burn and devour his thorns and his briars in a single day. 18 And He will destroy the glory of his forest and of his fruitful garden, both soul and body, And it will be as when a sick man wastes away. 19 And the rest of the trees of his forest will be so small in number That a child could write them down. 20 Now in that day the remnant of Israel, and those of the house of Jacob who have escaped, will never again rely on the one who struck them, but will truly rely on the LORD, the Holy One of Israel. 21 A remnant will return, the remnant of Jacob, to the mighty God. 22 For though your people, O Israel, may be like the sand of the sea, Only a remnant within them will return; A destruction is determined, overflowing with righteousness. 23 For a complete destruction, one that is decreed, the Lord GOD of hosts will execute in the midst of the whole land. 24 Therefore thus says the Lord GOD of hosts, “O My people who dwell in Zion, do not fear the Assyrian who strikes you with the rod and lifts up his staff against you, the way Egypt did. 25 “For in a very little while My indignation against you will be spent and My anger will be directed to their destruction.” 26 The LORD of hosts will arouse a scourge against him like the slaughter of Midian at the rock of Oreb; and His staff will be over the sea and He will lift it up the way He did in Egypt. 27 So it will be in that day, that his burden will be removed from your shoulders and his yoke from your neck, and the yoke will be broken because of fatness. 28 He has come against Aiath, He has passed through Migron; At Michmash he deposited his baggage. 29 They have gone through the pass, saying, “Geba will be our lodging place.” Ramah is terrified, and Gibeah of Saul has fled away. 30 Cry aloud with your voice, O daughter of Gallim! Pay attention, Laishah and wretched Anathoth! 31 Madmenah has fled. The inhabitants of Gebim have sought refuge. 32 Yet today he will halt at Nob; He shakes his fist at the mountain of the daughter of Zion, the hill of Jerusalem. 33 Behold, the Lord, the GOD of hosts, will lop off the boughs with a terrible crash; Those also who are tall in stature will be cut down And those who are lofty will be abased. 34 He will cut down the thickets of the forest with an iron axe, And Lebanon will fall by the Mighty One.
