Transcript of The Golden Chain

The Golden Chain
The basis of our comfort in confusing times is God’s commitment to the glory of Christ in His children.
Order of Salvation - Ordo Salutis
The Golden Chain
The Controversy
The Truth
It dismisses that God is the author of salvation
Romans 9:14-16

“14 What shall we say then? Is there injustice on God’s part? By no means! 15 For he says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.” 16 So then it depends not on human will or exertion, but on God, who has mercy.”
It doesn't solve the 'problem' logically.
1 John 4:19

“We love because he first loved us.”
God is the initiator not us
It openly denies how Christ describes salvation
John 6:44

“No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him. And I will raise him up on the last day.”
Numbers 16:5

"and he said to Korah and all his company, “In the morning the Lord will show who is his, and who is holy, and will bring him near to him. The one whom he chooses he will bring near to him."
In the Old Testament
Knowing Involves Doing
John 8:31-32

"31 So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, 32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
Galatians 4:9

"But now that you have come to know God, or rather to be known by God, how can you turn back again to the weak and worthless elementary principles of the world, whose slaves you want to be once more?"
In the New Testament
How did God 'foreknow' Christ?
1 Peter 1:20

"He was foreknown before the foundation of the world but was made manifest in the last times for the sake of you"
Foreknowing us is the choosing of God to set His saving love on a particular group of people sourced only in His mercy, love, and purposes.
The Truth
Acts 4:27-29

"27 for truly in this city there were gathered together against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, along with the Gentiles and the peoples of Israel, 28 to do whatever your hand and your plan had predestined to take place. 29 And now, Lord, look upon their threats and grant to your servants to continue to speak your word with all boldness"
The Plan of God for the Crucifixion
The Plan of God for our Salvation
Ephesians 1:11

"In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will"
The basis of our comfort in confusing times is God’s commitment to the glory of Christ in His children.
Will God actually be at work in all of life, even in the sorrows, to work it for your good?
Yes! Look to your salvation and see how great a work He has planned and worked already!
Believe and Proclaim the Gospel
