According to the will of the Father, whoever takes the Son, gets it all.

Abraham had eight sons from 3 different women but he left all that he had to only one son and that was Isaac to inherit the promises and blessings of God.
GEN 25:5 Now Abraham gave all that he had to Isaac;
Just because Isaac’s parents were believers and both of them made God’s hall of fame in Heb 11, that doesn’t mean that because of them God chose Isaac to receive the inheritance, and not the sons of Hagar, the Egyptian slave, or Keturah the Arab woman.
Ultimately parents have nothing to do with the spiritual promotion or the failures of their children in life, and vice versa.
EZE 18:20 “The son will not bear the punishment for the father’s iniquity, nor will the parent bear the punishment for the son’s iniquity; the righteousness of the righteous will be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked will be upon himself. - NAS
GAL 6:7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap.
According to the will of God the Father, whoever takes the Son GETS IT ALL.
Only the Jews who believe in TLJC are the real seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob,
and only they will inherit the blessings and the promises from God given to Abraham for the Jews as a people and for Israel and for Israel as a nation.
To inherit the fulfillment of the promises given to Abraham in GEN 12:2 I will make you a great nation, And I will bless you, And make your name great; And so you shall be a blessing; - you have to have +R and eternal life.
This passage is not saying that God violates anyone’s free-will; in fact, on the contrary, this passage is saying that God knew billions and billions of years ago what everyone’s free will would decide.
The most important decision you will ever make is to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ.
The second most important decision is, “Will you learn BD and live in the PPOG for your life?”
1TI 2:4 God desires all men to be saved and to come to the epignosis knowledge of the truth.
If you make those two important decisions, you will also have to face the principle of being challenged by Satan and the kingdom of darkness which is filled with deception and lies.
The Doctrine of the Theology of God’s Perfect Plan.
Point 1. Definition and Description.
theo - God
logia - word, discourse
= the study of God.
No theology will ever fully explain God and His ways because God is infinitely and eternally higher than we are.
Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for Him.
God does want us to know Him insofar as we are able, and theology is the art and science of knowing what we can know and understand about God in an organized and understandable manner.
Many believers try to avoid theology because they think that it’s too technical to understand.
1CO 2:14 But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God; for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised.
1CO 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things freely given to us by God,
Then there are those who try to avoid theology because they believe it is divisive.
Properly understood, theology is uniting.
The study of theology, then, is nothing more than digging into God’s Word to discover what He has revealed about Himself and His plans and desires for us.
To study theology is to get to know God, in order that we may glorify Him through our love, honor, and respect, revealed by our obedience to Him and His plan for our lives.
Disregard theology or the study of God, and you sentence yourself to chaos, fear, worry, anger, blindfolded, as it were, with no sense of direction and no understanding of what’s going on around you.
Perfect God can only produce a perfect plan even for sinful and imperfect human beings.
At physical birth, we were all born physically alive but spiritually dead because God imputed human life to our soul, and at the same time, the imputation of Adamâ€™s original sin.
Who would ever think that being condemned at physical birth would be a blessing from God because condemnation must precede salvation and that qualified all mankind, who is helpless and hopeless, to need the Savior.
Who could ever come up with a plan where one manâ€™s SIN condemned us all so that one man’s righteousness could makes us righteous and set us free forever?
ROM 5:18 one person did it wrong resulting in the condemnation of sin and death, another person did it right and got us out of it - but more than that He also gave us eternal life forever?
The eternal and infinite genius of God did all the work in condemnation and does all the work in salvation.
ROM 11:33 Oh the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways?
The right woman caused her right man to fall.
After pronouncing a curse about the man, the woman, and the serpent, He gave the first prophecy of the greatest manifestation of His eternal and infinite genius, the prophecy of the cross, GEN 3:15.
Through the fall they understood their need for God.
Through the fall the Lord God turned the curse into a blessing for them and all of us because He loves us.
What “Satan meant for evil God meant for good,” GEN 50:20.
ISA 55:8 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Neither are your ways My ways,”
The right one for your life is not necessarily the person who is so compatible with you or agreeable with you.
The right-man or the right-woman is the one who causes you to get to know God, who drives you to the PSD, who forces you to rely on the grace and the mercy of God, and to learn about forgiveness and the love of God, etc.
Even a marriage where one person is saved and one is not, that marriage can still bring glory to God or when one has PVTD and the other does not.
1CO 7:12-13 if any brother has a wife who is an unbeliever, and she consents to live with him, let him not send her away. And a woman who has an unbelieving husband, and he consents to live with her, let her not send her husband away.
Who could ever think that the greatest sinner who ever lived according to the scriptures was such a religious and self-righteous person?
“According to the will of the father, whoever takes the son - - -
GETS IT ALL.”
