"All in All, am glad to learn that we are all Predestined to be saved.."
Yes it is COOL isn't it? And that is the Gospel that we are to share to the world.
Evacha, you wrote:
"...and there is somewehere where God said He hardened Pharao's heart so that God would be glorified.. I dont like thinking about these texts because they evoke questions in my mind that i can not understand or find answers to.
Thank the Lord, brother, because there are answers to these questions.
This is part of understanding God's ways. How does God harden the heart?
God hardens the heart by trying to soften it with light from the courts above!
"It is not God that blinds the eyes of men or hardens their hearts.
He sends them light to correct their errors and to lead them in
safe paths. It is by the rejection of that light that the eyes are blinded
and the heart hardened. Often the process is gradual, and almost
imperceptible. Light comes to the soul through God's word, through
His servants, or by the direct Agency of the Holy Spirit; but when one
ray of light is disregarded, there is a partial benumbing of
the spiritual perceptions, and the second revealing is less clearly
discerned. So the darkness increases, until it is night in the soul." D.A.322.
"What Pharaoh has done will be done again and again by men until
the close of probation. God destroys no man; but when a man stifles
conviction, when he turns from evidence, he is sowing unbelief and will
reap as he has sown." RH Vol.6, p.285.
