It's Man That Chooses His Eternity Not God


(Rom. 9:11,13) “For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth; As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.” Because of the above verses, many a scholar have concluded falsely that God choses some men to be saved and others to be damned; Just as He chose Jacob in the above verse over Esau in the book of Genesis, and Israel over Egypt. What a sad commentary to believe that we are nothing more than pawns in the chess game of God, where we have no choice of salvation, nor any choice in changing or determining our future and eternity.  Oh listen, the above verses teach us that God is sovereign and that He can do what He wants, but He is also bound by His Word. God would not teach here that the fate of some is set by God’s unchanging will and then tease man later in scripture and say we do have a choice or freewill in the matter. No, His Word teaches all men that “whosoever will may come,” and that “He desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.”  Therefore, if  a man dies and goes to Hell, he goes there of his own free will because in life he chose to reject God’s call and his plan of salvation. God’s only crime therefore is to know beforehand who will be saved and who won’t. God hated the heart Esau because it chose the world over God, while Jacob had a heart after the things of God.

Salvation Is Through Christ Alone

(Rom. 14:11-12) “For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.” One day all men will stand in judgment before God, but there will be a special “great white throne judgment”(Rev. 20:11-15) set aside for the unsaved where God himself will explain to the unsaved that salvation apart from trusting in Jesus Christ is impossible. Different types of arguments and excuses will be given there: 1) Arguments by the Heathen Man . He believes that because he has never heard of Jesus he has an excuse, but God will show him that he once had the truth but rejected it. For all men came off  Noah’s Ark, unfortunately those that forsook God damned the next generations to follow by replacing God with the idols and the lies of men. So, no matter where man is found on earth he is guilty of rejecting God’s way of salvation for his own. That’s why Missions is so important today, fo…

Justified By Faith Alone

(Rom. 3:23) "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God."Have you ever asked yourself what this verse means? Well it means that if you are a human being no matter how good or righteous you are, because of your sin, your righteousness and glory can never equal or be good enough to get you into heaven. Why, because you fall short of the standard that God has set up, and that standard is the righteousness and glory of Jesus Christ. In the Old Testament, God gave the world the ten commandments not to save, but to explain to us why and how it is that we fall short. (3:20) "Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin." And that is why God sent Jesus, for man from birth is under the condemnation or judgment of God. We therefore need God's help to cover our sin to stand righteous before God.Therefore, to be justified and free from the condemnation for  sin, God sent Jesus to di…
