  • The Sovereignty of God Media Resource by

    Psalms 103:19

    Resounding throughout the pages of Scripture is the proclamation that God is King. And the concept most closely associated with His kingship is His sovereignty. To say that God is sovereign is not to say merely that He is stronger than everyone else, although this is true. Rather, to call Him sovereign is to ascribe to Him a rule and authority that transcends space and time, leaving nothing outside its scope. In this lesson, Dr. Lawson examines the nature and extent of God’s sovereign rule, showing how a biblical understanding of this topic can change the way we view the … View Resource

    Exodus 2:11-25

    The views in the desert must have looked much different than the vistas Moses witnessed from the royal palaces in Egypt. By all outward appearances, Moses’ fall from power and prominence to anonymity with authority over dumb beasts alone seems like a monumental downgrade. Yet, the Lord ordained both of Moses’ stations, and each served to cultivate within him the capabilities and talents needed to lead God’s people out of the confines of Egypt. In His wisdom, God prepared Moses with the richest learning of his time as well as equipped him with the humility and patience to guide and … View Resource

  • The Invisible Hand of God Media Resource by

    Exodus 1:8-22

    Despite all the hardship and struggle Joseph endured while in slavery in Egypt, he did not fail to recognize the sovereign hand of God in every event of His life. In response to his brother’s repentance, Joseph responded, “As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good.” This theme of providence carries over into the events recorded in the beginning of the book of Exodus. Just as Joseph’s brothers intended to bring about his destruction, Pharaoh sought to destroy all the Hebrew baby boys. Instead, God used this evil edict to preserve His servant Moses … View Resource

  • Almighty Over All Media Resource by

    Isaiah 45:1-8

    Most Christians claim to believe in the sovereignty of God, but many define His sovereignty in a way that ultimately exalts man over God.

Sproul Jr. explains what it means to say that God is sovereign and examines the implications of this confession for our lives and ministries.

  • Does the Doctrine of the Divine Decrees Eliminate Human Will? Media Resource by

    Isaiah 10:5-18

    Reformed theology teaches that God has ordained whatsoever comes to pass. Critics of Reformed theology argue that this entails a fatalistic worldview in which only God’s will truly exists. They claim that if God decreed or willed the acts of our will, then our will is not real. In this lecture, Dr. John MacArthur explains why the biblical doctrine of the divine decrees does not eliminate the reality of the human will and does not entail a fatalistic worldview.
