1.1.2: THE ETERNAL PURPOSES of GOD are “The Deep Things of God” & “The Thoughts of His Heart”.

AWARE of The GODHEAD 1.1.2

*****

The ETERNAL

Acts and Works

of The TRIUNE GODHEAD

may be distinguished

into

The Internal Acts in the MIND

of The TRIUNE GODHEAD

&

The External Works

by The TRIUNE GODHEAD

ACCOMPLISHED

Throughout

TIME and ETERNITY,

in The Universe,

On Earth

and

Inside The Souls of

Individual People.

***

The “External” Acts and Works

of The TRIUNE GODHEAD

are THOSE WORKS of GOD 

HE DOES in Time,

many of which are visible to us,

or may be known by us;

( by Observation, for Example );

***

SUCH AS:

THE CREATION of The UNIVERSE,

The PROVIDENCE of GOD

as GOD OPERATES to PROVIDE and PROTECT

and as seen in

GOD’S ACTS of REDEMPTION

of LOST SOULS

WHO PROFESS HIS SALVATION, etc.

***

We will consider

The “Internal” Acts and Works,

in the Mind

of The Eternal GODHEAD, first.

***

 These are “Internal” Acts

and Works of HOLY GOD

that were Done

in the Mind and Counsel

of HIS SOVEREIGN GODHEAD,

in Eternity Past.

***

Next, these

“INTERNAL” ACTS and WORKS

from ETERNITY PAST,

by THE ETERNAL GODHEAD,

may be further distinguished

into Personal Acts of GOD

and Essential Acts of GOD.

***

The Personal Acts of GOD

are INTERNAL PERSONALS ACTS

which are Peculiar

to Each Person of The GODHEAD

and may be even further distinguished,

for the sake of clarity, as

“The INTERNAL PERSONAL ACTS

by GOD The FATHER”,

or

“The INTERNAL PERSONAL ACTS

by

GOD The SON”,

or

“The INTERNAL PERSONAL ACTS

by

GOD The HOLY SPIRIT”.

*

Then, when we speak of the

“ESSENTIAL” INTERNAL ACTS

Made by The TRIUNE GODHEAD

from ETERNITY PAST,

we are referring to

“The INTERNAL ACTS of GOD”

that are Common to

ALL THREE of THE ETERNAL PERSONS,

in The GODHEAD.

***

  SINCE,

THE THREE PERSONS

in The TRIUNE GODHEAD

have the Same Nature and Essence,

they have the Same Understanding, Will, and Affections;

***

And, therefore, these

“INTERNAL ESSENTIAL ACTS”

belong to them, as

THE ETERNAL GODHEAD

both with respect to Themselves, as

The GODHEAD

and with respect to the Creatures that

The GODHEAD CREATED,

The Human Creatures that

The GODHEAD CREATED,

 would be, of course: Individual People.

***

This is to say, that

THE TRIUNE GODHEAD,

God the Father,

God the Son

and

God the Holy Spirit

Mutually Know One Another,

Love Each Other,

and

Will Each Other’s Happiness and Glory,

Because,

THEY SHARE

The Same Nature and Essence,

and

 Have the Same Understanding, Will, and Affections.

***

THE ETERNAL TRIUNE GODHEAD,

also,

have the Same Knowledge of

THEIR CREATED BEINGS,

People,

and of each of

THOSE INDIVIDUAL PEOPLE’S OWN WILL

and AFFECTIONS.

THE TRIUNE GODHEAD,

may also be said

to Have Similar Thoughts, Will and Affection,

Concerning these CREATED HUMANS

that were to be Brought into Being by Them,

AFTER, of course,

THE UNIVERSE, The Earth and “TIME”

ARE, FIRST,

CREATED by THE GODHEAD.

***

NOW, among these Internal

Acts of the Mind

 Made by The ETERNAL GODHEAD,

THAT ARE “ESSENTIAL”,

MEANING:

The INTERNAL Acts of the Mind

MADE by “ALL THREE PERSONS”

in THE TRIUNE GODHEAD,

COLLECTIVELY:

( or, “ESSENTIALLY” )

are

His Purposes

and

SOVEREIGN DETERMINATIONS

or Decrees:

***

WHERE DO WE LEARN of

GOD’S PURPOSES

and

SOVEREIGN DETERMINATIONS

or Decrees  ?

***

FROM “GOD”

WHO MADE THEM

in ETERNITY PAST

and

REVEALED THEM to US

in HIS WORD:

***

THE TRIUNE GODHEAD’S

PURPOSES and DECREES are

“Purposed in Himself”;

(Ephesians 1:9)

“Having Made Known to us

The Mystery of His Will,

According to His Good Pleasure

which

He Has Purposed in Himself.”

***

  AND

What is True of One of His Purposes,

is True of All GOD’S Purposes.

***

And, IN ADDITION,

THE HISTORICAL FACT

that there are

such PURPOSES in God

is Certain.

***

GOD’S PURPOSES MAY BE SEEN

which respect, not only

in HIS Affairs of ETERNALLY GIVING GRACE,

but also in GOD’S Providence;

even in the Whole Earth,

and all things in it,

as seen in Romans 9:11;

***

( For the children being not yet born,

[ Jacob , or Esau ]

I AM Poster - Jacob And Esau

neither having done any good or evil,

that the

Purpose of God

according to Election might stand,

not of works, but of Him that Calls )”

&

in Ephesians 1:11,

“In Whom also

we Have Obtained An Inheritance,

being Predestinated

According  to

The PURPOSE of HIM

Who Works all things

After The Counsel of His Own Will.”

&

Ephesians 3:11;

“According to

 The Eternal Purpose

which

He Purposed

in Christ Jesus our Lord”

&

Isaiah 14:24, 27;

“The LORD of Hosts Has Sworn, Saying,

Surely as I Have Thought,

So Will It Come To Pass;

*

and as

I Have Purposed,

So Will It Stand:…

*

“For the LORD of Hosts

Has PURPOSED

and

who will dis-annul it ?

***

and

His Hand is Stretched Out,

and

who will turn it back ?”

*

GOD’S PURPOSES

are also SPOKEN OF

by various names in scripture.

***

Sometimes,

THE ETERNAL PURPOSES of GOD

are called,

“The Thoughts

of His Heart”;

***

THE ETERNAL

PURPOSES of GOD 

are

The Deep Things of God,

which

Lie in The Inmost Recesses of His Mind;

Are Only Known by Himself,

AS GOD

and

Searched by His Spirit;

***

Just as the thoughts of a man

can only be known

by the spirit of man within him

 Psalm 33:11;

***

“The Counsel of the LORD

Stands Forever,

The Thoughts of His Heart

to all generations.”

&

in Jeremiah 29:11;

“For I Know The Thoughts

that I Think Toward you,

Says The LORD,

Thoughts of Peace,

and

not of evil,

to Give you An Expected End.”

&

in  1 Corinthians 2:10, 11;

“But God Has Revealed them to us

by His Spirit:

because,

The Spirit Searches all things,

yes, 

The Deep Things of God.

“For what man knows the things of a man,

except the spirit of man which is in him?

even so The Things of God

knows no man,

but The Spirit of God.”
