THE SOVEREIGNTY OF GOD AND THE FREE WILL OF MAN

God Sovereign but Man has Free WillThat God is sovereign is a fact beyond dispute, for the scriptures declare it in hundreds of ways. Likewise, the free moral agency of man is also declared beyond question. Consequently, the differences of Calvinism and Arminianism are varied, and both have plenty of scripture to support their views. Hence, to avoid the problem many hold that these two positions are but two lines of teaching in scripture that run side by side but never meet. Many settle the matter by Abraham's statement: "Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?" (Gen. 18:25){C}

Rightly dividing Acts 28 enables the bible student to understand God's will for our deportment in this age and give intelligent and credible answers to questions that become evident as we read the text of God's word. Confronting these issues should not be seen as an affront to our faith but rather an enlightenment that leads to edification.

There are two schools of thought in regard to the special revelation that God gave Paul regarding the Gentiles (Colossians 1:25-27.)  There is a group of good, dedicated Christians who adhere to the Acts 13 position and there is another group of good, dedicated Christians who cling to the Acts 28 position.  Having been in both groups at different times and having great respect for the leaders in both of these positions, I will list what I believe are the scriptural reasons I have selected one position over the other.

Introduction

Last time we looked at the teaching of "Jew first" in the Acts and its impact on churches in Galatia and throughout the world as they felt the force of the imperative Paul gave them to look after the needy in Jerusalem. Paul ends the section in 16:9 saying that a great door and effectual is opened unto him and that there were many adversaries. We should not be surprized at the greatness of the door that has been opened to us to make known the fellowship of the mystery and to expect an even greater adversary.

Last time we looked at the issue of  a "soulish" person and a "spiritual" person and the fact that the immortal body will be "spiritual". We look forward to the new body for many reasons -- not only is it the means for us to experience eternal life but it is the way we enjoy it as well. The bare grain of 15:37 is how the body was set up originally -- a far cry from the resurrected body (that which shall be). The specific resurrection mentioned here is that which occurs at the last trum and is found in Matt 24:29-35, 1 Thess.4:16 and Rev. 11:15,16. These passages have nothing to say about our hope which was hid in God.
