The Sovereignty of God is Absolute

The Sovereignty of God is Absolute

     To acknowledge this truth is at once to acknowledge that God has foreordained whatsoever comes to pass; that nothing else can come to pass; that predestination is a fact, that God does rule in the kingdoms of men; that all human ties, bonds and relationships are divinely appointed and formed; that salvation rests solely, fully, and only in God’s election; that salvation is by God’s grace and His grace alone; and, that no part of man’s salvation is of himself either in origin or execution.

     Where men get the idea that man’s will is the all-determining factor or moving cause of his salvation is hard to see.  Certainly they do not get it from the Bible.

“Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” - John 1:11-13
