Attributes of God(5)

A walk through A.W. Pink's Attributes of God. Feel free to read along and comment.

Ch. 5: The Supremacy of God-

Pink here takes all that he's written previously on the decrees of God, the knowledge, and the foreknowledge of God and puts them all together to arrive at a God that is foreign to many. Decrying the fact that most people's perception of God is “too human.” Pink points out that God is not moved by sentiment but rather by principle, that Satan does not thwart God's sovereign plan, that His plans are unchanging, that the atonement saves and not just “makes possible salvation.”

“The 'god' of this twentieth century no more resembles the Supreme Sovereign of Holy Writ than does the dim flickering of a candle the glory of the midday sun.”

Quoting Psalm 2, Pink points out that God dashes the unregenerate to pieces and laughs in heaven at their rebellion. Pointing to 1 Chronicles 29,20, Pink remarks that God reigns now and not just in the Millennium. Who can turn Him? Who can change His mind? Who can hinder His purposes?
