The Sovereignty of God # 5

Moses Public DomainExcerpt from “The Attributes of God” By Arthur W. Pink

“Now God did not place Adam upon a footing of conditional, creature responsibility, because it was right He should so place him? No, it was right because God did it. God did not even give creatures being because it was right for Him to do so, that is, because He was under any obligations to create; but it was right because He did so. God is sovereign. His will is supreme. So far from God being under any law of “right,” He is a law unto Himself, so that whatever He does is right. And woe be to the rebel that calls His sovereignty into question: “Woe to him who quarrels with his Maker, to him who is but a potsherd among the potsherds on the ground. Does the clay say to the potter, ‘What are you making?’ Does your work say, ‘He has no hands’?” (Isa 45:9).

Again; the Lord God sovereignly placed Israel upon a conditional footing. The 19th, 20th and 24th chapters of Exodus afford a clear and full proof of this. They were placed under a covenant of works. God gave to them certain laws, and made national blessing for them depend upon their observance of His statutes. But Israel was stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart. They rebelled against Jehovah, forsook His law, turned unto false gods, and apostatized. In consequence, divine judgment fell upon them, they were delivered into the hands of their enemies, dispersed abroad throughout the earth, and remain under the heavy frown of God’s displeasure to this day.”

Pastor was preaching Sunday in Genesis and was speaking about Egypt and how God judged all the Egyptians and their country at the time Moses led the people to the Promised Land. He said that they are a very poor nation compared to other Nations to this day.

Let us pray for our nation, that there will be a revival in the hearts and minds of those who call themselves Americans. Let us pray that they will turn from their wicked ways and turn to the God of Grace. For our enemy has infiltrated our land, some of them are our own citizens who walk not accordingly to the laws of the God of Creation. God help us!
