The Doctrine of Divine Decrees. Part 3.

Wednesday, August 15, 2007

Point 1. Definition and Description.
The decree of God refers to His eternal, holy, wise, and sovereign purpose, comprehending simultaneously all things that ever were or will be in their causes, conditions, successions, relations, and determining the certainty of their future.

By decrees is meant the eternal plan by which God has rendered certain all of the events of the universe (angelic history, human history) past, present, and future.

The decrees of God are His eternal purpose according to the counsels of His own will whereby for His own glory He has foreordained whatever comes to pass.

Because of our finite mental limitations, we must perceive them by logical and chronological progression, or in stages.

The decrees of God are His eternal purpose according to the counsels of His own will whereby for His own glory He has foreordained whatever comes to pass.

JOH 11:4 “This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified by it.”
