This development of obtaining a failure, to officially in the repressive regime on.

This was not mere foreknowledge; rather, we are told directly that God brought about the outcome and that he did this so that his word would be fulfilled—as it always is and always will be! This inescapable conclusion is reinforced further by the prophet Shemaiah in 2 Chronicles , where Shemaiah gave the direct command of the Lord to Rehoboam to cease from his plans to fight against Jeroboam.

Manifestly, there remains no room to doubt that God fulfilled his eternal, sovereign purpose, and he imposed his purpose on human free will in the process of so doing. As such, God influences human choices.

A perfect example of this is found in 2 Samuel Why would he do this? Was it just his bad luck or his bad judgment? Actually, it was neither. Left to their own free will, there is little doubt that the remaining Canaanites and the Perizzites would have indeed pursued and killed Jacob and his family in revenge for the massacre at Shechem. According to Genesis , the people from the Canaanite cities freely chose not to pursue Jacob and his family as they fled to Bethel because God had sent a great terror into their wills.

In other words, the people were caused to be unreasonably afraid to pursue Jacob when in actuality they possessed the superior strength to crush him.

For example, in Exodus —24, God told his people that all males, without exception, were to travel to the tabernacle three times a year to offer sacrifices, a command that was looking forward to the time when they possessed the Promised Land also Deuteronomy However, this command raised an obvious question—what would keep their enemies from attacking and plundering their families, their land, and their belongings while they were on these triannual pilgrimages?

He promised that no enemy would even desire to attack or plunder while the Israelites were away. This divine interference with human free will is no isolated assertion of Scripture; we read in Proverbs that God would indeed make the enemies of those who serve him to be at peace with them.

Moreover, although the Bible does not state it directly, it seems nearly certain that these enemies would never realize that their desires, choices, and actions were being influenced by a sovereign God. At the city that would come to be called Babel Genesis 11 , humans had decided of their own free will to create a name for themselves, and apparently a religion abhorrent to the Lord as well, by building a tower with which they supposed they might connect to the heavens.

As we all know, rather than respecting human free will, God confused their language in order to thwart and change their chosen course of action. Instead, God acted in a manner that resulted in the humans separating and going in different directions of their own free will. According to Acts , we can know that they did not just wander off haphazardly although it probably seemed that way to them ; rather, they each went to the exact place that God had ordained by his sovereignty.

It is quite likely that they did not realize at all that the change in their desires and free will was in fact the handiwork of the Lord; they merely chose what seemed best to them at the time, exactly as Edwards postulated. God interfered with and changed their free will, but, as is always the case, he did so using his own sovereignly chosen method.

Yet another illustration of how the Lord fulfills his purpose through human free choices and interferes with the human free will is found in 2 Chronicles The king of Judah, Amaziah, received bad counsel v. His purposes are always fulfilled. It is fascinating to ponder what would be written if the current events of our modern world were being recorded from a divinely inspired perspective such as this viewpoint in 2 Chronicles. If not, are we foolish enough to believe that God has relinquished a degree of sovereignty that he routinely exercised in ancient times?

Most Christians today are confident when they are engaged in the act of prayer that God can answer that prayer. However, do they realize that such an answer often involves God interfering with human free will? We should realize that an angel making these efforts successful would certainly involve God imposing his sovereign will on a number of human free wills.

He had hardly finished praying when Rebekah approached the well, ostensibly of her own free will vv. We see these choices and actions of her human will were quite obviously steered by the Lord. I want both. Wells, fumbling through history for the relevant, came across the conception of the kingdom of God.

He was shocked.

The Illusion of a Gentleman God

What happened to this conception of the kingdom of God? When Jesus spent 40 days with his disciples, after his resurrection, he talked to them about the kingdom of God.

Get this straight, he was saying, for if you get this straight, all the ages will go straight with you. But if you get this wrong, all the ages will go wrong with you. Did they get it? It was too great for their small hearts. By the time the creeds were written in the 3rd century, what had happened to the conception of the kingdom of God? The three great historic creeds summing up Christian doctrine, mention once what Jesus mentioned a hundred times. Something had dropped out.

A vital, vital thing had dropped out. A crippled Christianity went across Europe, leaving a crippled result. The kingdom of God was pressed into the inner recesses of the heart, as a mystical experience now, and then pushed out beyond the borders of this life, in heaven as a future kingdom.

So there were vast areas of life left out, unredeemed: the economic, the social, the political. A vacuum was left in the soul of Western civilization. Into that vacuum moved the earthborne totalitarianisms. And direct them to our ends and our means. I was speaking in a cathedral in Germany at the close of the second World War.

The topic was the kingdom of God. On the front seat were very well-known Germans, Dr. Niemoller among them. As I spoke on the kingdom of God, they kept pounding on their benches with their fists. Life for us was at loose ends.

We needed something to bring all life into coherence and meaning and goal. And we turned to Naziism and it let us down in blood and ruin. But now we see that what we were looking for was the kingdom of God. In this crisis?

These revolts that are taking place? We can see they are revolting against injustices in the social order.

But down deep, they are wanting the kingdom of God. Jesus taught us there were two ways in which the kingdom would come. One, by gradualism. The kingdom of God is like a grain of mustard seed. At worst, this is heresy, and it is unscriptural at best.

Not surprisingly, this is exactly what God made happen. We can know, therefore, that God brought it about; it was not just happenstance. If God was involved in the split—and the Bible says that he was—then he had a single perfect plan for the split.

If, on the other hand, the plan was perfect, then it was set in place long before the world began by our eternal God who stands outside of time. Therefore, Rehoboam could only have freely chosen one of the two choices. This was not mere foreknowledge; rather, we are told directly that God brought about the outcome and that he did this so that his word would be fulfilled—as it always is and always will be!

This inescapable conclusion is reinforced further by the prophet Shemaiah in 2 Chronicles , where Shemaiah gave the direct command of the Lord to Rehoboam to cease from his plans to fight against Jeroboam. Manifestly, there remains no room to doubt that God fulfilled his eternal, sovereign purpose, and he imposed his purpose on human free will in the process of so doing.

It is fascinating to ponder what would be written if the current events of our modern world were being recorded from a divinely inspired perspective such as this viewpoint in 2 Chronicles.Returning to Scripture, in another place we find a Benjamite man and his servant wandering about the countryside looking for donkeys that have supposedly just strayed away on their own 1 Samuel — How horrible indeed that would be!

This dramatic statement is not some isolated assertion of a single Bible verse. As such, God influences human choices.

But, you say, that would be bondage. God may sovereignly turn human free wills to hate his people Egyptian hearts in Psalm , or he may just as easily turn human free wills to look favorably on his people Egyptian hearts again, in Exodus and We are shown unmistakably, therefore, that the donkeys did not just happen to stray away, and Saul did not just wonder around the countryside of his own volition for several days before just happening to come near Zuph and luckily choosing to seek out Samuel.
