Counsels and Purposes of God Continued.

We are living in a world today that seems to need sound counsel and there is no better place to look than the Bible [ the book of truth ]. Today we are going to look and read what the Bible says about this subject.

1/ None can dis annul ———Isaiah 14:27

New King James Version (NKJV)

27 For the Lord of hosts has purposed,
And who will annul it?
His hand is stretched out,
And who will turn it back?”

2/ His counsel Shall be performed.——–Isaiah 14:24

24  The Lord of hosts hath sworn, saying,

Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass;

And as I have purposed, so shall it stand:

3/ The suffering and death of Christ were according to His purpose and by His counsel.

Acts 2:23

Expanded Bible (EXB)

23 Jesus was ·given [handed over] to you, and ·with the help[L by the hands] of ·those who don’t know the law [or lawless ones; wicked people; C a reference to the Gentiles/Romans who crucified Jesus], you put him to death by nailing him to a cross. But this was ·God’s plan which he had made long ago[L according to God’s predetermined plan]; ·he knew all this would happen [L …and his foreknowledge].

Acts 4:28

Expanded Bible (EXB)

28 These people made your plan happen because of your ·power [L hand] and your ·will [purpose]. [or L They did whatever your hand and your purpose predestined/determined beforehand to be done.]

4/  Saints are called according to His purpose and by His counsel.

Romans 8:28

Expanded Bible (EXB)

28 We know that ·in everything God works [or God works everything together; or everything works together (see text note)] for the good of those who love him.[a] They are the people he called, ·because that was his plan [L …according to his purpose].

2 Timothy 1:9

Expanded Bible (EXB)

saved us and ·made us his holy people [L called us to a holy calling]. That was not because of anything we did ourselves but because of ·God’s [L his own] purpose and grace. That grace was given to us through Christ Jesus before ·time began[L eternal times],

5/ Union of the Saints is according to His purpose and counsel.

Ephesians 1:1 (KJV )

Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus:  Note the words by the will of God.

Home reading.—- Isaiah 25. —His words are faithful and true!
