1.1.3: GOD Has “Faithfully and Truly” PERFORMED AND WILL PERFORM HIS DETERMINED PLANS throughout RECORDED TIME.

AWARE of The GODHEAD

1.1.3:

GOD Has

“Faithfully and Truly”

PERFORMED

and 

WILL PERFORM

HIS DETERMINED PLANS

throughout

RECORDED TIME.

As we have seen:

GOD’S PURPOSES

are SPOKEN OF

by Various Names in Scripture.

***

Sometimes THE ETERNAL PURPOSES of GOD

are called,

“the Thoughts

of His Heart”;

&

are the Deep Things of God.

***

WE WILL NOW SEE that

THE ETERNAL PURPOSES of GOD

are Sometimes called

the “Counsels” of God,

AND ARE “COUNSELS”

said to be “of old”,

AND: Ancient Ones,

EVEN: From ETERNITY PAST.

***

GOD’S COUNSELS ARE SAID

to be “Faithfulness and Truth”;

BECAUSE GOD

Faithfully and Truly PERFORMED

AND WILL PERFORM

HIS DETERMINED PLANS

in CREATED TIME,

throughout

RECORDED HISTORY.

seen in Isaiah 25:1;

*

“O LORD, You are my God;

I will Exalt You,

I will Praise Your Name;

*

for You have Done

Wonderful Things;

Your Counsels

of Old

are Faithfulness

and Truth”.

***

***

AND for GOD’S COUNSELS

TO BE SAID to be

“of Old, Faithfulness and Truth”;

does not suppose any degree of ignorance,

or ANY LACK of Knowledge in God.

***

THERE has been NO INSTANCE in TIME

as if “GOD was at a loss”

as to what definite decision to Make

or how to Determine (to do something):

*

( and, therefore, as if to say,

“GOD Consulted with Himself”,

or “Counseled with others”,

to arrive at what was

the “best course to take”

*

THE SENSE of GOD EXPRESSING to US

that HE HAD “COUNSELS”

is because such Resolutions,

AND “ACTIONS by the Mind”,

that are taken ONLY

after Mature Deliberation

and Consultation,

are generally

Formed in the Wisest Manner;

and commonly

WILL BE the most Successful

in the Execution

of THOSE “WISE PLANS”;

*

THEN, IT FOLLOWS that:

the Purposes of God,

  were made with

the Highest INFINITE Wisdom,

AMONG:

GOD THE FATHER,

GOD THE SON

& GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT.

*

AND SINCE,

GOD’S ETERNAL DETERMINATIONS

COME FROM

THE ALL KNOWING

TRIUNE GODHEAD

HIS ETERNAL PLANS

have the name of “Counsels”.

*

In Addition,

GOD’S ETERNAL

DETERMINATIONS

 are sometimes called “Decrees”,

***

  GOD’S “DECREES”

ARE the ETERNAL Determinations

of the Mind of God;

that He has Fixed, Settled,

and Resolved upon,

AS HIS ETERNAL PLANS.

seen in Daniel 4:17;

*

“This Matter

is by

the Decree

of the Watchers,”

( THE TRIUNE GODHEAD )

“and the Demand by the Word

of the Holy Ones:”

( THE TRIUNE GODHEAD )

*

“to the Intent that the living may know

that the Most High Rules

in the kingdom of men,

*

and

Gives it to whomsoever He Will,

and Sets up over it

the basest of men.”

&

in Zephaniah 2:2;

“Before the

Decree

bring forth,

*

before the day pass as the chaff,

before the Fierce Anger

of the LORD Come upon you,

*

before the Day of the LORD’S Anger

come upon you.”
