God’s Indisputable Sovereignty is a compilation of verses that present the proof for the great and humbling doctrine of “God’s Sovereignty.” Read, pray, and study carefully over the scriptures set within these pages, for they are the Word of God.
Dear Reader — The subject of "God's Sovereignty" is a matter concerning which we should humble ourselves. It is a profound, deep and humbling truth. No doctrine exalts or magnifies God and the finished work of Christ as that of "God's Sovereignty". And why, may we ask, should it not be reasonable to believe that God "worketh ALL things after the Counsel of HIS OWN will" (Eph 1:11) and not after the will of His creatures?
The only reason anyone believes in the absolute universal sovereignty of God is because it is revealed in the Bible. No other book in the world discloses this unqualified truth. Why this should be so is simple. The Book called the Bible is distinctly and exclusively the Word and Work of God. All other books are more or less the words and works of men. And further: the cause of anyone's faith in the unmodified "sovereignty of God" as revealed in the Bible is that it is DIVINELY GIVEN unto them to believe it. That is, the gracious sovereignty of God makes them able and willing to believe it (John 3:27).
In view of the reality that this truth is most distinctly and most certainly set forth throughout the Bible: the fact that men, religious or irreligious, oppose and seek to distort it to suit their feelings and fancies, is one of the best testimonies to the truth of this doctrine, though they mean it not so. This glorious "sovereignty of God" which they so spleen against has not as yet condescended to give them that grace which is needed to humble their pride and make them willing and able to heartily believe "that which is written". As the Scripture declares, "Thy people shall be willing in the day of Thy power" (Psa 110:3).
And now, dear reader, may you prayerfully and carefully read and study the following scriptures, and consider their meanings, for they are the Word of God.
