Who Is Your God?
Concerning the character of God, what gross mistakes men make! I believe it is a mistake about the person of God Himself which is at the root and foundation of all the mistakes in theology. My conviction is that the free-will theology of today makes God to be less than He is. The professors of that system have come to receive its doctrines because they have no clear understanding of the omnipotence, the immutability, or the sovereignty of God.
God has an absolute RIGHT to do what He will, with whom He will, when He will. He has the POWER also to accomplish His will and the RANSOM which enables Him to be true to His character in the carrying out of that will. When Almighty God comes to the soul of a man in grace, none can stay His hand. The enemy’s power is broken and the sinner is made willing. Satan cannot stay the conquering hand of Jehovah and the sinner wants to be conquered.
When one truly sees the holiness, mercy, righteousness, grace, justice, and love of God in Christ, rising like a mighty sun, it cannot but put an end to the darkness of will-worship and modern fundamentalism. What will your God do? How will your God do what He does? TELL ME WHO HE IS!
If your God is omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient and dwells in the heavens, He will do what He pleases. If He is any less than this, then He must wait to see what you will do. But the subdued king in Daniel 4:35 declared, “He doeth according to His will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth; and none can stay His hand or say unto Him, what doest thou?”
