He Hardens Whomever He Wills – Romans 9:14-18

He Hardens Whomever He Wills – Romans 9:14-18

He comes now to the second part, the rejection of the ungodly, and as there seems to be something more unreasonable in this, he endeavors to make it more fully evident, how God, in rejecting whom he wills, is not only irreprehensible, but also wonderful in his wisdom and justice. He then takes his proof from Exodus 9:16, where the Lord declares that it was he who raised up Pharaoh for this end, that while he obstinately strove to resist the power of God, he might, by being overcome and subdued, afford a proof how invincible the arm of God is; to bear with, much less to resist it, no human power is able. There are here two things to be considered, — the predestination of Pharaoh to ruin, which is to be referred to the past and yet the hidden counsel of God, — and then, the design of this, which was to make known the name of God; and on this does Paul primarily dwell. – John Calvin

Sunday Service has resumed! Click here for more information.

The following changes have been made to our service schedule due to the COVID-19 pandemic:

We will have Sunday service from 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM at Harvest Creek Venue and then dismiss for the day.  If you think it best to stay home then please stay home.  DO WHAT YOU THINK IS BEST FOR YOUR SITUATION.

Tuesday and Wednesday Bible studies will be combined.  We will meet at 7:00 PM on Wednesdays.  Call for details.

Sunday Service and Wednesday Bible study will be available as a Facebook live stream.  If you will be watching the live stream we recommend that you set aside the time for the service as if you were present.  We will pick songs that are familiar so you can sing along from home.  Please have your Bible open and ready to follow along for scripture reading and the sermon.

Hopefully this will soon pass and we can resume our normal schedule and activities.  Until then we will make adjustments as the need requires.  STAY SAFE and MAY GOD BLESS YOU.
