The will of God cannot be resisted.

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?” (Daniel 4:35).

Who can resist a being of Almighty power? What God wills to take place, must take place. He wills the salvation of all men because it is right. A God of purity cannot desire endless sin and rebellion. If he wills the salvation of all men, he wills all the means by which it shall be accomplished; it must therefore take place.

Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth (I Timothy 2:4).

God could no more choose to create persons without accepting that responsibility than human parents can choose to raise children without acquiring an obligation to promote their welfare.

God Will Settle for Nothing Less

If we suppose that God, being supremely powerful, supremely wise and supremely loving, can achieve, and will settle for nothing less than, perfect justice, then we must also suppose that He will settle for nothing less than a full atonement for sin – something that will actually make up for, or cancel out, sin.

The Mover of All Things

(Let Clyde read the Goodie for you!)

It is hard for man to accept how completely he is in the hands of God. “Churchianity” pictures God as sitting off to one side, waiting and pleading for His creatures to come to Him. Instead of that He is the active force; He is the mover of all things. We simply live and move and have our being in Him (Acts 17:28). If He does not move us we are not moved; if He does not enlighten us we are not enlightened.

The course that God has taken to accomplish His purpose for man is preeminently the right one, for God is Almighty; so there is no question of His power to do whatever He wills, and He wills “all men to be saved” (I Timothy 2:3-4).

The Climax of the Drama of Humanity

(Let Clyde read the Goodie for you!)

Of the final outcome of His creation God Himself declares that He will be “All in all,” that when the vast drama of human destiny reaches the culminating point of divine government even His enemies will be subjected; death, the fruit of sin, will be abolished as having done its work; Christ will be the Head of a redeemed race, and God will be everything to everybody. Such a climax is worthy of such a God, and justifies the creation of man with all of its complex problems.

The Bible reveals that God is not experimenting in human life. He does not adventure at the creature’s risk. He does not gamble on chance, or trust to a lucky turn of the wheel of life to bring a possible handful of His creatures back to Himself. In order to save one soul, He is not compelled by some hideous necessity to doom a hundred. When His purpose in human life is completed, no debris will remain to mar the finished perfection of His work.

The Ruins of the Fall Shall Be More than Repaired

(Let Clyde read the Goodie for you!)

I place such a value upon the merits and death of my Redeemer as to conclude all will be happy for whom He suffered on the cross. I pay such a regard to the positive declarations of Scripture as to anticipate “the restitution of all things,” when the ruins of the fall shall be more than repaired and the creature which now groans shall groan no more.
