The Sovereign God Rules in Heaven and Earth
“I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded”
Sovereignty means God has unlimited power and dominion over creation, over the affairs of man and history, and over every aspect of salvation. Sovereignty means God is free from outside influences, doing as He pleases, all He pleases, when He pleases, with whom He pleases and is doing His pleasure all the time. Sovereignty means God in absolute predestination is seeing His eternal purposes to their appointed end.
The Fall of Adam was predestined – The creation of the first man and woman, the law of obedience, the appearance of Satan with his temptation, their fall and hiding from God, followed by His words of prophecy and judgment, then His covering of Adam and Eve were all predestined. Knowing fully what was coming, God “rested” (Genesis 2:2).
The Work of Jesus Christ was predestined – God becoming flesh by virgin birth, His obedience in life, His sin-bearing death, His establishment of righteousness, His bodily resurrection, His personal ascension to heaven and His promise to come again were all predestined. “When the fullness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law. To redeem them that are under the law…” (Galatians 4:4-5).
The Call of the elect is predestined – God elected before creation; Christ redeemed at the cross; the Holy Spirit reveals the gospel of sovereign grace in time and experience. His call by the gospel is gracious, definite, irresistible and at God’s appointed time. Paul said: “…when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb, and called me by his grace, To reveal his Son in me…” (Galatians 1:15-16).
