Has God Predetermined Every Detail in the Universe?

33 The lot is cast into the lap; but the whole disposing thereof is of the LORD. (Proverbs 16:33)

 For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself. For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s. (Romans 14:7-8)

Christ Shall Have Dominion!

13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.

14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with Him.

15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.

16 For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

– 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

– Lyrics –


Christ shall have dominion over land and sea,
Earth’s remotest regions shall His empire be;
They that wilds inhabit shall their worship bring,
Kings shall render tribute, nations serve our King.

Refrain:
Christ shall have dominion over land and sea,
Earth’s remotest regions shall His empire be.

When the needy seek Him, He will mercy show;
Yea, the weak and helpless shall His pity know;
He will surely save them from oppression’s might,
For their lives are precious in His holy sight. [Refrain]

Ever and forever shall His name endure;
Long as suns continue it shall stand secure;
And in Him forever all men shall be blest,
And all nations hail Him King of kings confessed. [Refrain]

Unto God Almighty joyful Zion sings;
He alone is glorious, doing wondrous things.
Evermore, ye people, bless His glorious name,
His eternal glory through the earth proclaim. [Refrain]

Sir Arthur S. Sullivan

(Lyrics from Hymnary.org)

11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to Me, and every tongue shall confess to God.

– Romans 14:11

“Pray harder, sing louder, and proclaim the truth. Christ already has the victory, and we are His people. Ooh-rah!” – Lee Duigon


There’s too much defeatism out there. Too many Christians carrying on like the battle’s lost already, bad guys win, nothing we can do about it, etc. 347 more words

Monday Q&A 6: God and Man — Elisha McFarland

In this post, Elisha McFarland explains the center of Christianity: God and man.

“In dying for the scum of the universe, Jesus bridged the gap between holiness and evil and brought us back into the company of His Father.” – Elisha McFarland


In our past three Q&A’s, we have discussed three highly important topics: the character of God, foundations of Christianity, and Scripture. Yet so far, none of these topics have been as important as the one to be discussed today. God and man. Deo et hominibus. Theós kai ánthropos. The center of Christianity.

An Interesting Interview

This is a story of a man who, by the grace of God alone, converted from Islam to Christianity. To God alone be the glory!

(Description from YouTube)

Nabeel Qureshi (April 13, 1983 – September 16, 2017) was a Pakistani-American Christian apologist, author, speaker, and convert from the Ahmadiyya movement of Islam. Ahmadi Muslims worldwide are estimated to be around 10-20 million. The Ahmadiyya’s beliefs are more closely related to those of the Sunni Muslims than the Shi’a Muslims. The Ahmadis are guided by the Five Pillars of Islam and believe in the 6 Articles of Faith. They also accept the Quran as their holy book and pray five times a day while facing the Kaaba. Ahmadis practice Sunnah and accept the Authority of the Hadiths. However, their distinguishing characteristic is their belief in Mizra as the Promised Messiah and redeemer as was promised by the Islamic Prophet Muhammad. Mizra’s aim was to propagate Islam throughout the world through peaceful means and to revive the forgotten Islamic values such as peace, sympathy, and forgiveness.

The 34-year-old Nabeel was an itinerant speaker with Ravi Zacharias International Ministries (RZIM). This interview was recorded in February 2014 with Canadian Pastor Robbie Symons.

‘To God Be the Glory’

From Lee Duigon’s blog, “To God Be the Glory”. Please listen and think about the words!

I wish I could hear a million people singing this–don’t you? This is the hymn that’s been in my mind since last night, so it’s time to let it take wing: To God Be the Glory. Performed at the Middlesborough Baptist Church as part of “The NBA Big Sing.” Earth, sky, and trees provided by God the Father. Turn up the volume!
