But grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.  To him be glory both now and forever.  Amen.

THE HOLY BIBLE

 

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

 

Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

 

For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. Matthew 11:28-30

PREDESTINATION

 

"But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth" (2 Thess. 2:13).

 

There are three things here which deserve special attention. First, the fact that we are expressly told that God's elect are "chosen to salvation." Language could not be more explicit.

 

How summarily do these words dispose of the sophistries and equivocations of all who would make election refer to nothing but external privileges or rank in service! It is to "salvation" itself that God hath chosen us.

 

Second, we are warned here that election unto salvation does not disregard the use of appropriate means: salvation is reached through "sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth."

 

It is not true that because God has chosen a certain one to salvation that he will be saved willy-nilly, whether he believes or not: nowhere do the Scriptures so represent it.

 

The same God who predestined the end also appointed the means; the same God who "chose unto salvation" decreed that His purpose should be realised through the work of the Spirit and belief of the truth.

 

Third, that God has chosen us unto salvation is a profound cause for fervent praise. Note how strongly the Apostle expresses this-"we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation," etc.

 

Instead of shrinking hack in horror from the doctrine of predestination, the believer, when he sees this blessed truth as it is unfolded in the Word, discovers a ground for gratitude and thanksgiving such as nothing else affords, save the unspeakable gift of the Redeemer Himself.

When his disciples asked Jesus about the sign of his Second Coming and the end of the world (age) he gave the several signs.  Then he said:

 

All these are the beginning of sorrows. Matthew 24:8

 

“Beginning of sorrows” is a Greek idiom for “birth pangs”.  Just as a woman in labor notices the cramps getting more frequent and more intense as the time to deliver the baby draws near, so the signs of his Second Coming will be more frequent and more intense as the end of the world (age) draws near.

 

And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;    Luke 21:25

The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the LORD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.

 

Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.

 

And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.  Zechariah 12:1-3

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

 

   Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.  Revelation 13:16-18

Note: Some of the news story links (above) may go to web sites with whom we are not in theological agreement.  But we offer the news stories because we believe them to be accurate.  Many of these stories are not being covered by the mainstream news media, not even by Fox News.  Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal was a big Clinton Foundation donor. He was also a major shareholder of Fox News (at least until his arrest in Saudi Arabia in late 2017).
