No Contingencies

Our God never has a headache. He is never worried as we worry when our plans go wrong, for His plans never do. In the working out of the divine plans, there are no contingencies. All history is pregnant with the guiding counsel of the all wise God. His purposes never fail or cave in. They never collapse. No disasters ever attend the undertakings of God. He is sovereign Lord. An experiment is an experiment because of its possible failure. God never fails, hence He makes no experiments. The doctrine of annihilation discounts our conceptions of the divine wisdom.

His Own Blessed Will

What God purposes He brings to glorious fruition. By specific steps and by wholly adequate means He realizes all that He purposes.

Whom He predestinates, He calls. Whom He calls, He justifies; and whom He justifies, He glorifies. These are among the things which “work together for good” to those who are called according to His purpose.

Divine election is absolute. This, after all, is God’s own universe in which He has sovereign right to do after the dictates of His own blessed will.
