Here is Truth number 2, a very important thought to consider about God’s Election of man to salvation. It is that God’s purpose for his creation preceded the work of his creation, that in his foreknowledge God knew every movement of the history of every atomic particle through out time and its relationship to your life and the lives of every man, woman, and child. God knew what you would decide to do in his plan before creation was born into existence. With that knowledge in mind let us realize that Satan and ALL of Hell itself CANNOT change a single thing ABOUT your Salvation…ever! No lie from him can alter your peace of mind unless YOU decide otherwise but the change is ONLY COSMETIC in nature not FACTUAL!
Acts 1:18 Plainly states..”Known to God are ALL HIS WORKS from the beginning of the world.”
Who are we to question the God that formed the smallest sub-atomic particle in the palm of his hand, that knew I would one day accept his grace and be saved? We presume to know more than the creator because of the pride we have in our small-minded accomplishments, never taking into consideration just how far from perfect we are! You see, God started perfection and Sin spoiled that perfection; twisting into the exact opposite of its intent in our lives. It is our IMPERFECTION that blinds us to our own ignorance and thus deceives us into believing the opposite of what will bring true peace.
We as human beings stand here judging God’s FINISHED WORKS with our imperfect little minds and actions BUT fail to judge our works the same as those of God….Why is that? Are we just afraid to face our failure as imperfect beings? Is it so hard for us to believe that someone else holds the keys to our success? Are we so filled with pride as to believe that we in our many imperfections could ever make a perfect thought about our eternal destiny?
Just what is God’s purpose anyway? We define Purpose as “the intent behind an action being done, an object existing or being made or used for something.” God’s purpose then, was synonymous with the goal or the “intended result” of his actions in creation. Nothing that God did in creation ever conflicted with anything else in creation, there was perfect balance until SIN entered at the core of creation and ruined perfection. Each creative act of God accomplished his intent of heart and it was ‘good”. Now because of “Sin’s mess” God must do an “end-around” the mess using the problem to the advantage of the person. God is perfect wisdom and knows the end from the beginning even though in our pride we think it could be done better…why? Because of demonic knowledge being inserted into our minds, which in some cases has validity not because Satan knows more than God but because HE KNOWS MORE THAN WE DO!
Purpose is a “designed fail-safe” in every particle in the universe that even “sin” cannot change, it may delay the obvious but purpose will prevail no matter what. The cause of the universe is God. And as he is outside of the physical creation he made and as Time itself is not eternal, but a created element, God can work unrestricted. Satan on the other hand is bound within the concept of Time and must act within its limitations. In eternity there is NO CLOCK to track us down. God operates on an eternal framework NOT on a Limited Time framework, that’s why his timing seems off from ours. When God WILLS something done he wills it from eternity where there is no beginning nor end, therefore what he wills HAS ALWAYS BEEN from his perspective of timelessness! When Satan “Wills” something done on the other hand it is bound to the timing of God not Satan, and thus ruled over by God and his church. We through the power of God can change the will of Satan in the lives of men and thus bring into perfection that which was imperfect, but is never as easy as it sounds in this sentence. After-all we are dealing with a being who after God is the most wise and knowledgable creäture in existence though imperfect in that knowledge because of his fall from heaven. Even in heaven before Satan’s fall, God was ALL-KNOWING as he still is! Satan is NO match for God’s knowledge nor his purpose for that matter, but Satan being a master at deception giving him the ability to manipulate his limited knowledge to seem more than he is and that is enough to deceive man.
“Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created” (Revelation 4:11).
Since God’s WILL is Eternal in nature it would be wrong for us to think of anything in the word of God as grounded to this limited existence or its impure science, if it states it in the word of God (which is his written WILL) THEN ALL THAT IS WRITTEN HAS BEEN FULFILLED ALREADY in Gods perspective. It would be totally correct to think of what God states in the Word of God as “SENT PRE-FULFILLED” as written down 1,000’s of years ago, because when God says something IT IS ACCOMPLISHED AS IT LEAVES HIS LIPS! As the bible says in Hebrews 11:1 “Faith is (NOT JUST CONTAINS) THE EVIDENCE of things NOT NOW SEEN.” The Bible has WORDS that are the containers of FAITH (OR EVIDENCE to our world of God.) God’s promises come to us CONTAINING THE FULFILLMENT OF WHAT IS ASKED FOR within them, it is not “TIME” that’s required to believe BUT “GOD’S TIMING”, for if God sent the answer he knows the moment his purpose must be released to be effective within his creation. God made a plan for all of Eternity that was perfect in every detail….Satan plans his plans to interfere with God’s perfections BUT what even Satan cannot understand that God’s purposes once proclaimed from his essence cannot ever be reverted from. Satan is self-deceived, believing that HE not God can alter creation to his reputation and likeness. This blindness has passed to all men through sin and is not repairable except through repentance. True repentance places us in the position to be realigned with God’s original purpose which is totally in opposition to Satan’s plan for us and puts us on his “Hit list” to attack harder than others who follow his plan! This is why Bad things happen to “Repented” Good people who follow the original creative plan of God.
It is NOT in our power to know ALL there is to know of God’s perfect plans for us but it is in our power to know they are “perfect for us” in this time even as more of his plan is revealed in the next moment of time. It is required of us not to know the “end of plan” but to follow the plan to that end with much patience of soul. We as his body can find comfort in the working out of our lives as ALREADY accomplished before the foundations of creation by God but the man who knows not God’s working in his life finds this appalling to him, that someone else has control over his destiny. It is the NOT knowing that godless men take comfort in, because in not knowing is no guilt and in no guilt is false peace. But for the true believer peace is found in the knowing that God is in control. What makes the difference? Surrender of self-will to God’s will, takes the Christian from “no knowledge of true peace” to an in-depth peace of soul that is layered every day with new revelations of God’s plan for him or her!
This is from a Lame web-site called http://godisimaginary.com/i6.htm and as can be plainly seen they get this stupid idea from “so-called believers” who have NO grounding in reality whatsoever and use this line of reason to say God’s plan is evil with this reasoning attached: “God’s plan” is the way that Christians traditionally explain things like amputations, cancer, hurricanes and car accidents. For example, if a Christian dies a painful and tragic death because of cancer, she dies as part of God’s plan. Her death has a purpose. God called her home for a reason. Even if something bad happens to a Christian, it is actually good because it is part of God’s plan.” and thus the result is this dumb statement:”If the concept of “God’s plan” is true, you can first of all see that God wants us to be aborting children. Every single abortion is planned by God, so God must be doing it for a reason.”
This line of reasoning has possessed the ungodly mind to discredit God when in fact it reveals just how far from perfect we are. This IN NO WAY is the truth, God’s plan has never been more misrepresented than in this way. They are assuming that all evil is a part of his plan when the bible is clear that evil is the by-product of man’s own desire coming in conflict with God’s purpose for good. That does not mean that God will not use man’s screw-up to get us back to his original perfect plan without the screw-up. Man not God is the creator of evil desire, and God does not DO EVIL , HE USES THE INTENT OF EVIL FOR A GOOD END that would not have happened without His intervention! The intent of Abortion is to do murder to the unborn but God’s intent is to turn this around for good..but how? First of all Abortion is not a single victim sin, it hurts all connected to it including the doctor performing the deed. So it is God’s purpose to save all involved after the fact, but he was not planning the death of the child to do it that is on man’s conscience. God can save by many and by few, from sin or through sin, that choice is ours. Does a doctor make men sick by intention only that he might heal them later? If men do not do this and we are made in God’s image, then God cannot be said to do this either by the same rules of logic!
No so-called Proof on the above site is unexplainable with simple spiritual logic. The problem is not what they say but with the direction of their question, it is always presupposed that God is imaginary, that he does not exist and in this state of mind no evidence is good enough to convince the mind otherwise. Even if God himself stood before an Atheist proving his power, the Atheist would never believe and blame the “God who isn’t there” for the whole mess he’s in. This is the mixed up state of the mind in the darkness of deception, because to believe in anything the Atheist says begs the question of God’s existence. If what the Atheist says of God is true then he MUST EXIST albeit in an evil twisted state but if God is NOT THERE then every word they use to insult him is pointless drivel ment to make them feel better in their denial!
Remember, the plan of God is not the same plan that Satan has for our lives and the two will always conflict with each other. The Atheist denies Satan’s existence so they cannot grasp the idea of a second plan in conflict with God’s plan, and the Church stepped in much conflict of its own in its belief of both so how can the unbeliever ever know the difference if we don’t? The world looks to false religion to see a God that’s repelled by religion’s hypocrisy and hates mans evil mental attempts to understand him that come short of his greatness. God can ONLY be understood through spiritual purity of heart, a repentant heart free from the sin of blindness. False human Religion is anything but pure, it is the blind leading the blind over a cliff. If anyone looks for God within this realm they find a mixed-up version of who God is, filtered through man’s ideas of what God should be like mixed with what the bible says he is like. Religion of men is “Conflict in motion” churning out daily more and more confusion and misdirection at every turn. ALL man made faith of any kind is guilty of this, it cannot be helped for true faith is born out of the true God and cannot be birthed out of “good intents”. This is the worlds play ground not God’s so we cannot find him there, mixed with mortal ideas. We insult the purpose of God by trying to understand him in mortal terms when he is bigger than the universe itself.
