The Sovereignty of God

When God becomes dependant on man, in which the christian humanist doctrine purposes, then he is no longer really Sovereign God but becomes a “god” or diety that one is able to manipulate to meet ones own ends. All religions have this concept. For example, animism, controls the destiny of man by the manipulation of the spirits, polytheism manipulates the gods for their ambitions, Buddism appeases the flesh in order to achieve the perfect state of nothingness to be one with the divine, Hinduism appeases the gods and or the flesh to achieve Nirvana. All man made systems of religious beliefs in the earth try to control their god and thus are able (according to them) to manipulate their own destiny. This concept also occurs in Apostate Christianity.

For when man exalts himself as God (or a god) he then becomes the exclusive determiner of his own destiny. Humanism does this without diety and ‘Christian Humanism” does it with diety.” If it be thy will’, is not emphasized in this type of Christianity but rather it is, “if I will then God will grant.”  Christian Humanism adopts the same type of system as all other religions: by certain behavior,(obedience to laws), working out of principals and performances, man can achieve true blessing and achieve oneness with the divine.

Another feature of humanist christianity is the nature of man. Man is a created being with dignity and has godlike features. Man can choose the good because man has a measure of, untarnished from the fall, faith to, of his own accord, choose God and receive salvation with all its benefits in this life. He has a “free determined will”, that also according to them is not tarnished by the fall, that is able to choose the good from evil .  Law keepers who can work out their own salvation (with a little god help) are trying in their own efforts to achieve a state of holiness by performance rather than by God’s working out his sovereign will in each individual life.

However,the sovereign God of all the earth says this in his word,

“Thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself” (Psa. 50:21)

“I am the first and the last; and beside me there is no God”(Isa. 44:6)

“Nay but, 0 man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say unto Him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?” (Rom. 9:20)

“So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy” (Rom. 9:16)

“He that thinketh himself to be something when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself” (Gal. 6:3)

Revelations 19:4-6

Sam. 2:6-7 The Lord kills and makes alive; He brings down to Sheol and raises up. The Lord makes poor and rich; He brings low, He also exalts.

And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia. And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great. And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigns.

1 Sam. 12:22 For the Lord will not abandon His people on account of His great name, because the Lord has been pleased to make you a people for Himself.

Ps. 139:16 Thine eyes have seen my unformed substance; and in Thy book they were all written, the days that were ordained for me, when as yet there was not one of them.

“His Sovereignty rules over all.” – Ps. 103:19

The sovereignty of God is not emphasised in modern Christianity, but rather man is exalted as having good and god like attributes, able to help God in his salvation by contributing his will and to acheive holiness by performance rather than by grace alone.

I am a minister (servant) of the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Gospel of Grace ministries • Evangelism • Teaching • Children’s ministry • Apologetics • End times I have a BA in History and Anthropology/Sociology combo Paralegal Diploma (specialty Research, Writing, Critical thinking & argument & Instruction) Paralegal Instructor-taught paralegal for 1 year Diploma in Physical Education ( Fitness, nutrition, coaching, ) Faith based Social Work (almost completed degree) Certificate in Personal Ministry (Intercession, deliverance) 1 year (independant) bible college (concentration area, intercession, deliverance,) Ministry Experience : Evangelism ministry 20 years (preaching, intercession,deliverance, apologetics ) Ministering and serving low income families,single mothers, marginalized. Child Evangelism in different communities. Ministering Evangelism through music (vocals and guitar) Administration; started church support groups, started various different outreaches over the years, Internet ministry. My ministry gifts are Prophetic Evangelism and Teaching (apologetics and end times revelation in particular). My motivational gifts are Intercession, prophecy, administration. I am a bond servant of Jesus Christ and am called by him to preach the gospel of grace through faith in Jesus Christ apart from the deeds of the law. My Statement of Faith I believe that Jesus is God's son and is himself God, the third person of the Godhead, (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) I believe the bible says YOU MUST be born again by the Holy Spirit to enter into the kingdom of God. I believe Jesus died for the sins of all that have been called out of darkness into his glorious light. Heaven is for the redeemed and hell is for reprobates. The death of Jesus Christ is the substitutionary atonement. “But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.” Jesus sent the holy Spirit to comfort, teach, build up, edify, consecrate, and seal God’s people until his return. Jesus will return to the earth to rule and reign for 1000 years on the earth. I believe we are in the end times and anti christ will soon be revealed. I also believe that we are living in the last days of the great apostasy and falling away from the truth of God's word but God has a remnant,( his elect, chosen before the foundation of the world,) that have not bowed the knee to Baal. These sheep will soon face great persecution that God will allow to take place before the return of Christ. This persecution which will be worldwide will be what separates the true Christian from the false apostate. Those who love not their lives to the end will be shown to be the true church of Jesus Christ but the compromisers of the integrity of God’s word, who choose the spirit of error, worldly doctrines of men, the works of the flesh and the works of the law will be shown to be apostates like Judas and will die in their sins. No one can come to Jesus unless the Father gives him the ability to do so. No one will seek after Jesus unless he is drawn by the Father according to scripture but all whom God calls by his Holy Spirit will come to Jesus and be saved from their sins and be given eternal life for he who has promised is faithful to perfom his promise. The Lord is calling his church to come out of Babylon : Come out of false new age teaching, Come out of legalistic adherance to OT laws to save you, Come out of false signs and wonders that have no scriptural basis, Come out of witchcraft and the doctrines of demons, Come out of humanism and the promotion of man by self help principles and RETURN TO THE PURE UNADULTERATED WORD OF GOD ! “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. Revelation 18:4 Isaiah 55:6-7 Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
