We spent the new listeners welcome to the RT heart program. I'm not thanking you for joining us today because we know Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. Our message today is an eye-opening teaching that I believe is sorely needed in Christianity today. It is predestination versus fatalism. Much of what is being heralded as destiny by many preachers and teachers is really fatalism that God has chosen certain people when chosen destinies for them that will happen regardless of what they do or don't do. If you've been confused by the terms predestination election or just the latest buzzword destiny. You will be helped by this message. Predestination versus fatalism. One reason why God ministers and reaches out and chooses those who come to Christ and then backslide is because he knows like the prodigal son. They will come back. Amen.

And that's why we've got to keep that backslider in prayer and allow the Holy Spirit to use us to minister to them. Amen and tell them remember you're counting only the when you get when you maybe you will like that is why when people you have other people.

The Holy Spirit gives us the wisdom to know what to do. Paul said no you're not going we persuade men. Why is hands of the living God you don't know when is your father.

Amen when you know your father the most wonderful father. But when you don't know that your father will think he said knowing the terror of amen we don't solve so in whitewash.

There are some people you have to deal with them sternly that they will not be lost, and rebuke them sharply, that they may have been taken As well. Amen we know how to reach out to them with other argue they say it must be me and the things you see me.I we have to be led by the Holy Spirit that we make all narrow. Amen. That's in second Timothy the second chapter towards the end. So predestination is that once we choose Jesus Christ because God knew that we would you chose us and then he put us on the path to our final destination but now here's what predestination is to a lot of people and this is what you've been hearing each that our destiny is predetermined is predetermined by God and nothing we can do to change, not even our failures like the quote in one is one of my favorite verses in the Bible and I use this all the time.

I don't see how you can encourage a Christian any more than to tell him this Jeremiah 2911 right know the thoughts that I think toward you say the Lord, thoughts about it, not people thoughts to bless you to prosper you to give you an expected another words to give you a hopeful outcome in a hopeful future. True, God's thoughts towards all of us but it's not set in style.

Amen. It's not what it's going to be regardless of what we do.

But this is what you're hearing. Now I understand there are no their motive is to alleviate negative feelings that we may have over our mistakes that are bad choices that we made in the consequence we had supper because of it or because of failures and burying that we cannot do anything to alter our set destiny said none of that matters. They say, because God ordained destiny before the world began, so it doesn't matter about any of that.

It's going to be what it's going to be inheres when the Scripture they like you. Proverbs 1921.

It says there are many in a man's heart, nevertheless the counsel of the Lord shall state there are many mice that were device can mean plans. Imagination schemes. There are many plans in a man's heart, nevertheless the counsel of the Lord shall stand so they interpret this to mean that no matter what you planned in your heart what you decide or imagine in your heart. God's counsel for your life is going to stand. Not that many. Amen.

That is not predestination that, and there's a huge difference. Amen.

What will be will be.

When I was a little girl. There used to be a song out the world, said Ron Ron, what ever will be will be the future. They are wrong. I never heard you listen that nature is what it's going to be regardless one of the bad things about that. The worst thing about you can deceive yourself and think you're going to have a good outcome when you're not think you're going to end up at the wrong road.

Amen. The other thing is that the blame for all junk all things that happen will God made me this way. Well, will make them that way and realize there is no answer to a lot of the things in this world. People single at the loving and why children born blind or crippled or etc. etc. and that we'd even seen people that had worn that way and they functionally are able like and deep with it. They use as they say, well, God made me this way at the way he made. I'm glad they were able to come to a place where they can go on and functioning like to be a happy person but that way. God is all things good. Amen. Generation after generation after generation of things are caused by road and start over and over and over and doesn't do that, the people, the people, but of course I can take that life and make something see what I'm saying, so they say that your your destiny is what it is and that's how it will be but as we saw already. This highlights free choice. It was certainly not an easy it was not God's will for that night and lose that beautiful life that they had come under the dominion of the enemy. They were given one commandment not eat 13 and I love the way God is always a positive not negative because it is not a negative thought. Amen. Say all you eat on this one tree. He said of all the trees you may freely eat but this one you see the devil wants to point out the 1 Negative Alley does sometimes in your life becomes an sits on your shoulder and points out why wrong in your life, and he will be ready to quit a baby and get it all given you. Amen is not how the devil works. You know how you get out of you. The best way to get the devil, why do all the time I start counting all I start thinking about all I have to say Lord I thank you for my beautiful new leather furniture paying for three but just this one don't eat. Amen.

It gave them the choice and they chose to eat it anyway and say and the consequences are going to become one of the world, and death entered the world. Amen. They made the choice now.

The person who said this in Proverbs about their many devices and a man's heart of the Council, Lord, that I may know who wrote calming himself purported to be the wisest man ever was because God gave him his wisdom, God gave him extraordinary wisdom because when he was young and saw in his heart and love God and when he was passed over all other brothers and shows him the baby boy on the family and God.

David, I want you to make Solomon your care. The and when he chose young man was overwhelmed by what he was to be the king of Israel, my God and my father said you that you would choose me your people. I know we know we knew was the less you will write your speech. The little children that we all receive on the wrong feet they finally learned how to put their own shoes on. They finally learned a lot. They got the left foot on the right foot in the right to be in the position of Israel. So a magnanimous person like my father, King David O. So we got away with in one God.

When you seek after God.

He will show up when he got into him and he said Solomon me what you and I'll give it to you see single God never said that to me. Maybe he knows what you're going to think Solomon would say he knew what they would say I want the life of all my enemies. What a silver platter.

I want all the silver and gold I want to be the richest king that was ever known that my pain will go to the whole world when he didn't ask. He said I asked for wisdom know how to rule your people. I discretion didn't know how the rule that God said he pleases me. Solomon that you asked for that you could like your enemies.

I would've given it to you but you didn't and because you wisdom going to give you like no one has ever had probably like what Adam had before. He said in some way and not only to give you what you God. Amen Solomon, I'm going to give you great wisdom that you asked. Well, after all, was the wisest man that ever lived, and he said this, but let's look at Solomon I want to tell you it was not Solomon's destiny to marry a thousand women let's go to Deuteronomy 17 and see what God said about who would be the king of this people of this was when Moses was getting the final word from from God and passing them on to the children of Israel prophesying in advance.

The day will come when Israel will have a king. Amen.

And not going to be God's will is not to be what he wants, but their hurricane may know that so he said in Deuteronomy 1716, when King whoever he is, comes the power he shall not multiply horses to help your cause people to return to Egypt.

Best to get the horses where they have the and that he should multiply horses for as much is the Lord you shall not henceforth return no more.

That way the power lines to himself that his heart turn away and neither shall greatly multiply silver and gold three jerking should not do multiply horses and send people back Egypt again. He should not multiply what I should not multiply silver, gold, self three things okay so what did Solomon do if you read first Kings 11 chapter you will find Solomon the many strange women, the daughter of Pharaoh that would like to see you Mike. I don't type all arch enemy nations concerning which the Lord said, you shall not go into that they cannot come to you, for they will surely turn away your heart after their God.

Solomon claim under them and love, and he had 700 wives and princes in 300 hockey mind and his wives turned away his heart for it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods, and his heart is not perfect, but the Lord is God's will. Part of his father David and he went after*the goddess of the 5 billion new abomination of the Mike he did evil in the sight of the Lord, Lord David Don placed 14 Gnostic abomination to God for their living baby to on the fire.

Solomon building a high place for him in the hill that is before Jerusalem, another one they gave child sacrifice to the abomination of the children like what strange wives are God's people, places were then placed under them. And the Lord was angry with Solomon because his heart was turned from the Lord God of his Israel, which had appeared on him twice a prophet like that usually did not an angel like that often did Solomon personally twice and commanded him concerning this very thing, that he should not go after other gods, but he kept not that which the Lord commanded the Lord said under Solomon for Mrs. Dorothy and that was not My public must not which I commanded thee I will surely run the kingdom from the and will not, and will give it to thy servant was not God's will wasn't God's will and destiny for Solomon to marry a thousand women and knows women most of them were God's enemies and then go there. God I'm not been read to you, but you can find out in other places it tells how that he sent people to Egypt to bring back courses, and we know we had so much going was laid up like dust. Now I want to know was that his destiny was not God's counsel that's going. Did God want to run the kingdom away from him and to bind the king no verse does not mean what people say to me. Amen.

You got the perfect destiny for you. You get to choose. You get to choose. And if you choose the wrong thing and that the wrong choices. Like Solomon very quickly anything would Solomon wrote after when he was old and now an unhappy all gold like dust horses is not why children galore, but this is what he said on bears. So in the book of Ecclesiastes. I looked on all the works of my hands and all my labor and it was vanity. It was profitless and vaccination of spirit. Therefore, I like because I would leave all my labor shall be after me with quietness okay in school with vexation of spirit.

This letter is a wise child that an old escape.

Who will no longer be admonished young Fullilove and only wanting to die joyfully with the wife now. Love all the days of my life is not portion in this God's will for you you want in life wife.


I hope you're being spiritually informed by this revelatory message. Predestination versus fatalism. Perhaps you notice that a favorite buzzword Christian teaching and preaching today is destiny. While this term is not actually in the Bible, the closest word to it is predestinate. Which means to determine decree or ordain before hand, but the emphasis is not on who, what, not whom God has predetermined to be saved.

But what are they predestined to what is there destination. Once they choose to follow Christ. Where will the road lead them. The Scripture says that no one under God are all his works from the beginning. And Paul said in Romans 829 that God foreknew who would answer the call to receive his son and who would not in God will never violate man's free will and he does not arbitrarily choose to refuse anyone.

He did not force Adam and Eve not to eat of the forbidden tree. It was their choice. But once they made that choice. They had to deal with the consequences. We also get to choose whom we will serve.

But we don't get to choose the consequences. Those whom God foreknew would choose Jesus.

He predestinate. Our destination once we choose Christ. God chooses us and puts us on the path to our final destination which is to be glorified with Christ in his eternal kingdom. God is no respecter of persons, and he is not willing that any should perish. So even knowing many will not choose Christ. He invites all to receive him, so that on judgment day. They are without excuse. The false claim that everyone's destiny is predetermined by God and nothing you can do will change it. Even if you fail is fatalism and it is motivated by a desire to eliminate any negative feelings over mistakes as though they are also meant to be a part of one's preset destiny. They quote St. King Solomon. He said there are many devices in a man's heart, nevertheless the counsel of the Lord shall stand. I will show you why this very verse disproves predestination and Solomon's life is exhibit a don't miss this landmark teaching.
