Hi Kenny,

is GOD in CONTROL, has GOD already CONTROLED the beginning and the end including all that is in between

Isa 46:10  declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things not yet done, saying, 'My counsel shall stand, and I will accomplish all my purpose,'

God has a plan and a purpose that He's worked out before He even created this universe.  God being Sovereign He is in control of everything that there is, indeed it is only by Him that anything exist.

1Co 8:6  yet for us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we for Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and through whom we live.

God is truly everything whether we recognize it or not.  For a few He is opening their eyes to this truth now, but most will learn who God is in the next age.

Act 17:26  And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings,
v. 27  so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us;
v. 28  for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, "For we are also His offspring.'

mercy, peace and love

Hi Kenny,

This is a long read, all the q & a in this will answer many of your questions on what Ray writes
concerning GOD Being In Control. I am late to the party but take a read of this Ray Answers:

Excerpt from: Is God really sovereign?

Do you consider Job just a parable too?  Satan wagered that Job would choose one way, and God wagered Job would choose to continue in righteousness.  How POINTLESS would this be if Job had no choice in the matter in the FIRST PLACE.  Demons fall to their knees at the sight of Jesus.  Satan throws himself down in the face of God's power.   I'd say they knew AND know their maker better than we do.

Either Satan was forced by God to make such a lame wager, and God proved to HIMSELF he could torture a man, and then make that man still be righteous, or Satan KNEW Job had choice, attempted to make him choose evil, and God showed us a reason to continue through trials and NOT curse God.

May God's love guide us,

p.s. I hope you do not weary of our discussions!

Dear Matthew:

Heck no I don't get weary of your questions. They are a lot more thoughtful and stimulating that most I receive.

I think I detect God turning on a few light bulbs in you mind. Let me try and answer all the propositions you presented.

First I need to clarify our use of words again. The word "free" as it is used in "free will" can ONLY mean that a person can think thoughts, make choices, and perform activities completely on his own with nothing CAUSING him to think, choose, or perform.  That's as clear as I can state it. If something, ANYTHING, causes (or let's get stronger--MAKES) a person think a thought or make a choice or perform an action, then he did not do it FREELY. Don't get me wrong; he may have done it voluntarily, but not FREELY.

Our minds have the power and capability to "choose". A choice is merely "what we prefer." Our brains CAN analyze data, weight pros and cons, and MAKE choices. He can, however, do NONE OF THESE FREELY--that is "without a CAUSE." Let me use a softer expression and maybe it will become clearer.  Do you now agree that we are "influenced" to think things, say things, and do things?  OF COURSE WE ARE! Now then, if something influences you to actually DO something, then that influence WAS THE CAUSE. And whatever caused you to do something MADE you do it. And once something is MADE to do something, it is impossible to ever have been avoided!

I realize that this goes a little beyond psychology and theology 101, but it is not impossible to apprehend. It does take consider time meditating on these things before one becomes COMPLETELY convinced in his own heart and mind that the statements that "ALL is of God" and "God Who operates ALL according to the counsel of own will", are always true under all and every circumstance. Now to your comments:

You suggest that surely God gives us SOME will and SOME choices. Matthew, He gives us THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS of choices according to our own wills. It's just that NONE of them are exercised WITHOUT INFLUENCE (or a cause that makes us do as we do). Try some experimenting if you will. Sit still and try to come up with a thought, choice or action that has zero influence.You might think that something even just "pooped into your mind" and that NOTHING caused it. Sure it did. Something did. There are no effects in the physical or mental universe that have no causes.

You use the word "forcing" our foot steps. God never uses that word. But He does use words such as "directs" or "guides". It doesn't take a great deal of energy for God to make people follow the footsteps that He has established for us. The SLIGHTEST motivations in our finances, stomach, social life, egos, etc., will easily cause us to go either this way or that way.

Of course none of this is of any value unless we can establish it in God's Word. Notice what God says regarding our "steps":

"...It is NOT IN direct his steps..." (Jer. 10:23).

"A man's heart deviseth his way: but the Lord DIRECTS HIS STEPS" (Prov. 16:9).

God could have just as easily said: "...the Lord directs HIS WAY" It's all the same to God.

"Man's goings [Heb: steps] ARE OF THE LORD: how can a man then understand HIS OWN WAY? [it matters not if our steps are good or sinful]" (Prov. 20:24).

"For now thou NUMBEREST my steps [THAT'S pretty specific, Matthew]: dost thou NOT watch over my SIN?" (Job 14:16).

"The steps ['steps' is used to symbolize ALL OF MANS DOINGS] OF A MAN ARE ordered [Heb: established] by the Lord" (Psa. 37:23). If ALL man's steps are "established", then of necessity they are ordered by God IN ADVANCE of him taking those ordered steps!

The Joy comes from knowing that our Path is already laid out, and we can actually follow His Voice (Path for us).

Eze 34:8 (GNB)
As surely as I am the living God, you had better listen to me. My sheep have been attacked by wild animals that killed and ate them because there was no shepherd. My shepherds did not try to find the sheep. They were taking care of themselves and not the sheep.

Eze 34:25 (GNB)
I will make a covenant with them that guarantees their security. I will get rid of all the dangerous animals in the land, so that my sheep can live safely in the fields and sleep in the forests.

Joh 10: 27-29 (GNB)
27  My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.
28  I give them eternal life, and they shall never die. No one can snatch them away from me.
29  What my Father has given me is greater than everything, and no one can snatch them away from the Father's care.

Hi Antaiwan,

ALL Thanks and Praise Go To GOD The Father And Our Lord Jesus Christ.

HE Directs our very tiniest step; when we leave all and Seek HIM First.

Psa 37:4 (GNB)
Seek your happiness in the LORD, and he will give you your heart's desire.

Mat 6: 31-34 (MKJV)
31  Therefore do not be anxious, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, With what shall we be clothed?
32  For the nations seek after all these things. For your heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things.
33  But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you.
34  Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow; for tomorrow shall be anxious for its own things. Sufficient to the day is the evil of it.

Heb 11:6 (GNB)
No one can please God without faith, for whoever comes to God must have faith that God exists and rewards those who seek him.

george. ;D

Kenny, I was wanting to add a verse to the one you gave. In Psalms 73  verse 25. Whom have I in heaven but thee? there is none upon earth that I desisre beside thee.
 I just read Verse 26 and found this verse really profound. My flesh and my heart faileth: But God is the strengh of my heart, and my portion for ever.

He suppies every thing.  This is jut another of his precious pearls. This post has led us to by looking up scriptures others have  showed us.

All Glory to God.

In His Love,

The key word for me is NEED.  What do I really NEED?  To be honest, I need nothing more than my relationship with ABBA.   The rest is, "all these things will be added to you".  What is it that you really  need; food, shelter, clothing?  He will supply these as you continue to see ye first the kingdom.  Did the children of Israel go without while wondering in the wilderness?  Did God not supply what their needs.  How much more will he give good gifts to his children who ask of him.  Is it money you need?  Ask and it shall be given.  If any man lack wisdom, let him ask and it will be given to him freely.  Wisdom and understanding and love are true riches.  With these things, you can truly move mountains. 

Silver and gold I have not, but such as I do have, I give it unto thee. 

Receive ye the Holy Spirit.

Hello First Fruit,
 As Kenny says, now that's meat to chew on. :D I wouldn't even put any steak sauce on that one. I don't use sauce anyway. I like meat just the way it is. :P ;D
