THE HOLY BIBLE

 

 

No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. John 6:44

PREDESTINATION

 

"Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ" (1 Peter 1:2).

 

Here again election by the Father precedes the work of the Holy Spirit in, and the obedience of faith by, those who are saved; thus taking it entirely off creature ground, and resting it in the Sovereign pleasure of the Almighty.

 

The "foreknowledge of God the Father" does not here refer to His prescience of all things, but signifies that the saints were all eternally present in Christ before the mind of God.

 

God did not "foreknow" that certain ones who heard the Gospel would believe it apart from the fact that He had "ordained" these certain ones to eternal life.

 

What God's prescience saw in all men was, love of sin and hatred of Himself.

 

The "foreknowledge" of God is based upon His own decrees as is clear from Acts 2:23-"Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain"-note the order here: first God's "determinate counsel" (His decree), and second His "foreknowledge."

 

So it is again in Romans 8:28, 29, "For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed conformed to the image of His Son," but the first word here, "for," looks back to the preceding verse and the last clause of its reads, "to them who are the called according to His purpose"-these are the ones whom He did "foreknow and predestinate."

 

Finally, it needs to be pointed out that when we read in Scripture of God "knowing" certain people the word is used in the sense of knowing with approbation and love: "But if any man love God, the same is known of Him" (1 Cor. 8:3).

 

To the hypocrites Christ will yet say "I never knew you"-He never loved them. "Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father" signifies, then, chosen by Him as the special objects of His approbation and love.

NEWS ITEMS WITH PROPHETIC SIGNIFICANCE

 

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

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
