Absolute Predestination: Observations on the Divine Attributes by Jerome Zanchius

Observations on the Divine Attributes Necessary to be Premised, In Order to Our Better Understanding the Doctrine of Predestination,

Available in Kindle .mobi and ePub Formats

ALTHOUGH the great and ever-blessed God is a being absolutely simple and infinitely remote from all shadow of composition, He is, nevertheless, in condescension to our weak and contracted faculties, represented in Scripture as possessed of divers Properties, or Attributes, which, though seemingly different from His Essence, are in reality essential to Him, and constitutive of His very Nature.

Of these attributes, those on which we shall now particularly descant (as being more immediately concerned in the ensuing subject) are the following ones:

    His eternal wisdom and foreknowledge
    The absolute freedom and liberty of His will
    The perpetuity and unchangeableness both of Himself and His decrees
    His omnipotence
    His justice
    His mercy

Without an explication of these, the doctrine of Predestination cannot be so well understood, and we shall, therefore, briefly consider them by way of preliminary to the main subject.
