Wisdom of God Equipping the people of God with understanding

Predestination and the Power of God

God causes the movement of every single particle that exists in creation, which is why in God not only do we exist and live, but also move,

For in him we live and move and exist. As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’

Acts 17:28

Which is why God is the one that “causes” the sun to rise on the horizon,

that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.

Matthew 5:45

And also “causes” the formation of a baby in the womb,

For you formed my inwards parts, and covered me in the womb of my mother.

Psalm 139:13

Because without God, nothing can move, nor live, nor exist, and through his power he causes the movement of absolutely everything, according to complex and natural laws of science, physics, mathematics, and biology that he himself established, and this is why when any dice is rolled, the outcome is always determined by God,

We may throw the dice, but Yehovah determines how they fall.

Proverbs 16:33

Which is why the apostles cast lots to choose who the twelfth apostle would be to replace Judas, because they knew absolutely everything is determined by God, because he is the one that causes all movement,

Then they cast lots, and the lot fell to Matthias; so he was added to the eleven apostles.

Acts 1:26

Which was also the reason why the High Priest had “Urim and Tummim”, to use them to make decisions based on what their outcome was, which had the same basis of why ordinary lots are cast, to make a decision based on “chance”, just as a referee tosses a coin in the air to determine which team will do the opening kickoff in a football game, but because chance does not exist, because absolutely everything is determined by God, because God is the one that causes all movement, then whatever outcome the Urim and Tummin gave was considered the “judgment of God” when trying to make a decision, such as, “should we go to the left or should we go to the right?”,

And he placed the breastpiece on him, and in the breastpiece he put the Urim and the Tummim.

Leviticus 8:8

So Aaron shall bear the names of the sons of Israel in the breastpiece of judgment on his heart, when he goes into the set-apart place, to bring them to regular remembrance before Yehovah. And in the breastpiece of judgment you shall put the Urim and the Tummim, and they shall be on Aaron’s heart, when he goes in before Yehovah. Thus Aaron shall bear the judgment of the people of Israel on his heart before Yehovah regularly.

Exodus 28:29-30

And he shall stand before Eleazar the priest, who shall inquire for him by the judgment of the Urim before Yehovah. At his word they shall go out, and at his word they shall come in, both he and all the people of Israel with him, the whole congregation.”

Numbers 27:21

And this is also why God is able to turn water into blood, cause the sun to stand still in the middle the sky, cause a staff to turn into a serpent, divide the Red Sea so that Israel could cross through it, resurrect the dead, and many more more miracles and signs that God has performed throughout time, because just as he is the one that causes movement according to natural laws of science, physics, mathematics, and biology that he himself established, so is he able to do the supernatural contrary to these laws he established, and thus reveal his power unto us,

Moses and Aaron did as Yehovah commanded. In the sight of Pharaoh and in the sight of his servants he lifted up the staff and struck the water in the Nile, and all the water in the Nile turned into blood.

Exodus 7:20

The sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed going down about a full day. There has never been a day like it before or since, a day when Yehovah heeded the voice of a man.

Joshua 10:13-14

So Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and did just as Yehovah commanded. Aaron cast down his staff before Pharaoh and his servants, and it became a serpent.

Exodus 7:10

Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and Yehovah drove the sea back by a strong east wind all night and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided. And the people of Israel went into the midst of the sea on dry ground, the waters being a wall to them on their right hand and on their left.

Exodus 14:21-22

Then he said to me, “Prophesy to the airflow; prophesy, son of man, and say to the airflow, Thus says the Master Yehovah: Come from the four winds, O airflow, and breathe on these slain, that they may live.” So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the airflow came into them, and they lived and stood on their feet, an exceedingly great army.

Ezekiel 37:9-10

And because the existence of everything is caused by God, along with him causing the continual movement of everything, and even him causing the continual formation of everything that is “living”, such as the growth of a plant from a seed, is also why every atom of water that exists in creation is numbered precisely by God, along with every strand of hair on the head of every man on earth,

Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and measured the heavens with a span, and calculated in a measure the dust of the earth, and weighed in scales the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance?

Isaiah 40:12

Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

Luke 12:7

And he said, “The kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seed on the ground. He sleeps and rises night and day, and the seed sprouts and grows; he knows not how. The earth produces by itself, first the plant, then the ear, then the full grain in the ear.

Mark 4:26-28

And this is why God truly knows “everything” and is truly “everywhere”, causing every intricate aspect of creation to exist and to move, from the complex interactions and movements of every cell in the body, to the complex interactions and movements of all the stars that to this day we have no number for, and this is why the power of God is tremendously great,

Where shall I go from your airflow? Or where shall I flee from your presence? If I ascend to heaven, you are there! If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there!

Psalm 139:7-8

He determines the number of the stars; he gives to all of them their names. Great is our Master, and abundant in power; his understanding has no number.

Psalm 147:4-5

But Yeshuah answered them, “You are in error, because you know neither the scriptures nor the power of God.

Matthew 22:29

And what God causes to happen at every moment has also been appointed by God before he established the foundations of the world, which is “predestination”, like a movie that has been scripted before it is produced,

And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.

Romans 8:30

For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.

Romans 8:29

You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.

Psalm 139:16

And God appointed who would choose him, because just as nothing can exist nor move with God, so in likewise manner no man can choose God unless God chooses him first, and no man can reject God unless God first rejects him, because just as a puppet cannot move unless a puppeteer causes it to move, so can man do nothing except by what God causes him to do,

No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them, and I will raise them up at the last day.

John 6:44

for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.

Philippians 2:13

Because just as God moves every particle that exists in creation, so does God move the heart of every man, and either hardens the heart to cause a man to reject him,

The heart of the king is like channels of water in the hand of Yehovah; He turns it wherever He wishes.

Proverbs 21:1

He has blinded their eyes and hardened their heart, lest they see with their eyes, and understand with their heart, and turn, and I would heal them.

John 12:40

he chooses to harden the hearts of others so they refuse to listen.

Romans 9:18

But I will harden Pharaoh’s heart that I may multiply my signs and my wonders in the land of Egypt

Exodus 7:3

Or he softens the heart to grant it understanding to cause a man to choose God,

Or do you disregard the riches of His kindness, tolerance, and patience, not realizing that the kindness of God leads you to repentance?

Romans 2:4

I will give them a heart to know me, that I am Yehovah. They will be my people, and I will be their God, for they will return to me with all their heart.

Jeremiah 24:7

All to serve a greater purpose, so that by first predestining all men to be sinners, he may then reveal qualities of himself that would otherwise not be possible to reveal, such as mercy and forgiveness, on those whose hearts he chose to soften to grant them understanding to cause them to come to repentance, and express his love towards them in the greatest way possible, to die for them while they were still sinners, so that through the death of the Messiah would come their justification and aeonial life, who are like “protagonist actors” of the “movie” of this heaven and earth that God has scripted, who will live on into a new heaven and new earth with newly appointed aeons of the aeons,

For God has bound up all in disobedience, that he may show mercy to all. 

Romans 11:32

And when the Gentiles heard this, they began rejoicing and glorifying the word of the Master, and as many as were appointed to aeonial life believed.

Acts 13:48

And what if he is willing to make known the wealth of his glory on the objects of mercy that he has prepared beforehand for glory

Romans 9:23

For he says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.”

Romans 9:15

So you see, God chooses to show mercy to some… 

Romans 9:18

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, the Messiah died for us.

Romans 5:8

So then it is not of the one wanting, nor of the one running, but of the showing mercy of God.

Romans 9:16

But we ought to give thanks to God always concerning you, brothers beloved by the Master, that God has chosen you from the beginning unto salvation in the set-apartness of the airflow, and by belief of the truth; 

2 Thessalonians 2:13

Who accuses against the chosen of God? God is the one justifying.

Romans 8:33

Paul, a bondman of God, and apostle of Yeshuah Messiah, for belief of the chosen of God, and full knowledge of truth, of the one according to piety;

Titus 1:1

But we ought always to give thanks to God for you, brothers beloved by the Master, because God chose you as the firstfruits to be saved, in becoming set apart by the airflow and belief in the truth.

2 Thessalonians 2:13

even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be set-apart and blameless before him. In love

Ephesians 1:4

You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you.

John 15:16

“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.

Matthew 25:34

but to sit at my right or left is not for me to grant. These places belong to those for whom they have been prepared.

Mark 10:40

See, I will create new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind.

Isaiah 65:17

Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the set-apart city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! The dwelling place of God is now with men, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.

Revelation 21:1-3

But according to his promise we are waiting for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.

2 Peter 3:13

And night will be no more. They will need no light of lamp or sun, for the Master God will be their light, and they will reign to the aeons of the aeons.

Revelation 22:5

While also reveal his power and wrath against those whose hearts he chose to harden to cause them to continue in their lawlessness and evil ways, and express his hatred towards them in the greatest way possible, to bring powerful plagues against them leading up to the collapse of every city on earth, which will then lead up to their final condemnation and destruction by being thrown in lava, which will then cause them to cease to exist in most painful way possible, who are like “antagonist actors” of the “movie” of this heaven and earth that God has scripted, whose end is to cease to exist as quickly as they came into existence, and will pass away with this heaven and this earth, never to be remembered and brought into existence again,

What if God, desiring to show his wrath and to make known his power, has endured with much patience vessels of wrath prepared for destruction,

Romans 9:22

though they were not yet born and had done nothing either good or evil, in order that the purpose of God of election might stand, not because of works but because of him who calls, she was told, “The older will serve the younger.” As it is written, “Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated.”

Romans 9:11-13

Yehovah hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.

Proverbs 16:4

For Scripture says to Pharaoh: “I raised you up for this very purpose, that I might display my power in you and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.”

Romans 9:17

and to you being oppressed, repose with us at the revelation of the Master Yeshuah from heaven, with His mighty angels, in a fire of flame, inflicting vengeance on those not knowing God and on those not obeying the gospel of our Master Yeshuah, who will suffer the penalty of aeonial destruction away from the presence of the Master and from the glory of His power, when in that day He shall come to be glorified in His set-apart people, and to be marveled at among all those having believed because our testimony to you was believed

2 Thessalonians 1:7-10

he also will drink the wine of the wrath of God, poured full strength into the cup of his anger

Revelation 14:10

And one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls full of the wrath of God, the One living to the aeons of the aeons. And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from His power; and no one was able to enter into the temple until the seven plagues of the seven angels were completed.

Revelation 15:7-8

The first angel went and poured out his bowl on the land, and ugly, festering sores broke out on the people who had the mark of the beast and worshiped its image.

Revelation 16:2

The second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it turned into blood like that of a dead person, and every living thing in the sea died.

Revelation 16:3

The third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood.

Revelation 16:4

The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and the sun was allowed to scorch people with fire.

Revelation 16:8

The fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and its kingdom was plunged into darkness. People gnawed their tongues in agony and cursed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, but they refused to repent of what they had done. 

Revelation 16:10-11

The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphratesand its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the East. Then I saw three impure airflows that looked like frogs; they came out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. They are demonic airflows that perform signs, and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty… And they assembled them at the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.

Revelation 16:12-16

The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and out of the temple came a loud voice from the throne, saying, “It is done!” Then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since mankind has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake… the cities of the nations collapsed… Every island fled away and the mountains could not be found. From the sky huge hailstones, each weighing about a hundred pounds, fell on people. And they cursed God on account of the plague of hail, because the plague was so terrible.

Revelation 16:17-21

Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the aeonial fire prepared for the devil and his angels.

Matthew 25:41

And they will go out and look on the dead bodies of those who rebelled against me; the worms that eat them will not die, the fire that burns them will not be quenched, and they will be loathsome to all mankind.

Isaiah 66:24

Then you will trample on the wicked; they will be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day when I act,” says Yehovah Almighty.

Malachi 4:3

Not so the wicked! For they are like chaff driven off by the wind.

Psalm 1:4

For his anger is but for a moment, but for life is his favor. Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning.

Psalm 30:5

You were the seal of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. You were in Eden, the garden of God… Through your widespread trade you were filled with violence, and you sinned. So I drove you in disgrace from the mount of God, and I expelled you, guardian cherub, from among the fiery stones. Your heart became proud on account of your beauty, and you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor. So I threw you to the earth; I made a spectacle of you before kings. By your many sins and dishonest trade you have desecrated your set-apart places. So I made a fire come out from you, and it consumed you, and I reduced you to ashes on the ground in the sight of all who were watching. All the nations who knew you are appalled at you; you have come to a horrible end and will be no more.

Ezekiel 28:12-19

I said, “You are gods, sons of the Most High, all of you; nevertheless, like men you shall die, and fall like any prince.”

Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. From his presence earth and sky fled away, and no place was found for them.

Revelation 20:11

Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

Matthew 24:35

For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear…

Matthew 5:18

And because absolutely everything is appointed by God, to serve a purpose according to his will, is why even those that are born mute, deaf, and blind are “caused” to be this way by God,

Then Yehovah said to him, “Who has made man’s mouth? Who makes him mute, or deaf, or seeing, or blind? Is it not I, Yehovah?

Exodus 4:11

So that God may reveal his power to heal,

His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” “Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Yeshuah, “but this happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him… After saying this, he spit on the ground, made some mud with the saliva, and put it on the man’s eyes. “Go,” he told him, “wash in the Pool of Siloam” (this word means “Sent”). So the man went and washed, and came home seeing.  

John 9:2-7

And because of all of this is why God is the one who forms light or creates darkness, makes peace or creates evil, gives life or brings death, strikes to cause a wound or brings healing, because he is the one that appoints everything to happen,

I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I Yehovah do all these things.

Isaiah 45:7

Yehovah kills and brings to life; he brings down to Sheol and raises up.

1 Samuel 2:6

For he wounds, but he also bandages; he strikes, but his hands also heal.  

Job 5:18

“‘See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god beside me; I kill and I make alive; I wound and I heal; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand.

Deuteronomy 32:39

And this is why the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom, because absolutely everything, whether good or evil, has been appointed by God to exist and happen, and until a man understands this, he cannot understand anything,

The fear of Yehovah is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the the set-apart one is understanding.

Proverbs 9:10

And he said to man, ‘Behold, the fear of the Master, that is wisdom, and to turn away from evil is understanding.’”

Job 28:28

The fear of Yehovah is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Proverbs 1:7

And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in Gehenna.

Matthew 10:28

Consider the work of God: who can make straight what he has made crooked?

Ecclesiastes 7:13

And this is why everything in creation happens like a movie that is scripted, with every little detail of creation serving a purpose that has been predestined by God, and just like a movie director stages a set of a movie, and places “protagonist” actors who play a role for good, and also places “antagonist” actors who play a role for evil, so in likewise manner has God chosen who will play the “protagonist” role, who God also grants understanding of this profound truth, causing them to become wise, causing them to do good and to cease doing evil, to thus lead them to their deliverance, while he has also chosen who will play the “antagonist” role, whose hearts God hardens to remain darkened in their lack of understanding and stupidity and disbelief, unable to perceive the power of God and his authority over absolutely everything, causing them to continue doing evil, to thus lead them to their own predestined condemnation and destruction,

You will say to me then, “Why does he still find fault? For who can resist his will?” But who are you, O man, to answer back to God? Will what is molded say to its molder, “Why have you made me like this?”
Has the potter no right over the clay, to make out of the same lump one vessel for honorable use and another for a use of no honor?

Romans 9:19-21

Many shall purify themselves and make themselves white and be refined, but the wicked shall act wickedly. And none of the wicked shall understand, but those who are wise shall understand.

Daniel 12:10

But the seed falling on good soil refers to someone who hears the word and understands it. This is the one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.

Matthew 13:23

When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in their heart. This is the seed sown along the path

Matthew 13:19

Whoever is of God hears the words of God. The reason why you do not hear them is because you are not of God.

John 8:47

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his aeonial power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became idiots

Romans 1:18-22

and with all evil deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be delivered. Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe the lie, in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

2 Thessalonians 2:10-12

because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed to the aeons! Amen.

Romans 1:25

And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Though they know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.

Romans 1:28-32

The lips of the righteous feed many, but idiots die for lack of understanding.

Proverbs 10:21

They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts.

Ephesians 4:18

They know nothing, they understand nothing; their eyes are plastered over so they cannot see, and their minds closed so they cannot understand

Isaiah 44:18

And this is why many err in their understanding of God, because they perceive the imperfection that exists on this earth as the reason why God cannot exist, not realizing that God deliberately subjected this earth to imperfection and futility for a greater purpose, to eventually free it, like a distressing movie, leading up to an incredible climax of deliverance and freedom,

The idiot says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds; there is none who does good.

Psalm 14:1

For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the sons of God. For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now.

Romans 8:19-22
