Part I: Predestination vs. Free Will
by Rav Sha'ul

2 Peter 2:10 identifies anyone who teaches "self-will" also known as "free-will" but identified in the Bible as "enslaved to sin will" as FALSE TEACHERS.  The entire concept of the Bible is submit your enslaved will to God and do His will.  That is ALL Yahusha did was His Father's will and denied his "self-will" even to death.  That is what made Yahusha GREAT.

Then later in 2 Peter 2:19 after it identifies "self" or "free-will" as a false teaching, these teachers promise "FREEDOM" of will (this is the ONLY reference to free will) while actually their will is ENSLAVED!  Hmmmmmm... Pretty clear to me.

Romans 6:16 is the BOTTOM LINE in regards to your will.  You are either a "slave to sin" or you submit your enslaved sinful will to God and you become a "slave to righteousness".  Bottom line... YOUR WILL IS NEVER FREE.  Those who teach such things are called FALSE TEACHERS (reference 2 Peter 2:10)

Romans 8:28-30 sums up predestination in terms of salvation as well as "all things".  God CAUSES (He doesn't react to events as they occur unbeknownst to Him... no He CAUSES) ALL THINGS to work together for the good of those that love God, to those who are CALLED by Him (not those who in their free will chose Him) according to His purposes (If we chose God it would be OUR purposes).  For those whom God knew before He created the Universe, those He also predestined to live a life on Earth where He would CAUSE (vs. 28) them to be conformed to the image of Yahusha the Messiah.  And those God predestined to be like Yahusha, He CALLS them during this predestined life at a predestined time, then He justifies them through a process called sanctification as they grow to know Him.  Those whom God justifies, He then glorifies to become one of the sons of God.  Salvation is 100% a work of God.  0% work of man.

Romans Chapter 9... Then Paul goes into great detail concerning the sovereign choice of God proving there is no such thing as free will.  Establishing this fact using examples such as Jacob and Esau, Moses and Pharaoh... then coming right out and spilling the beans that you are either saved or damned (using the metaphor of clay vessels) and you have no choice in the matter.  Then Paul even asks the question that everyone has... "Why does God find fault with you for not doing His will when He predestined you not to do His will in the first place"!!!! Amazing reading but a humbling answer... YOU DON'T HAVE THE RIGHT TO ASK!!!  So if you can't ask why God chose you or didn't, the next logical question is asked and answered.  Why does God bother with all this and even create damned people?  But Paul finally answers all this in Romans 9:22-23.  God endures with much patience the damned, so that He may make known the riches of His glory to the ELECT by comparison/contrast.  We know what we have been given as saints, 'cause we can see those around us who do not know God.  That is the reason.

There is NO place for man's free will in the predestined order of the Universe governed by a Sovereign God.  PERIOD.  Why? 

So that no man my boast before God that he in his free will chose God.... it is by God's choice alone you are in Yahusha the Messiah... He provides our wisdom, our righteousness, our sanctification, and our redemption.  So to prevent humanistic PRIDE... We have nothing to do with our salvation.  1 Cor 1:29-30

To those who have received from God "election"... they have the right to become children of God, those who believe in Yahusha the Messiah.  Those who were born not of blood, not of the will of the flesh, NOT OF THE WILL OF MAN, but of the will and sovereign choice of God.  John 1:12-13

I could go on... and on... and on... and on... Just pick up the Bible and let if fall open just about anywhere.  And you'll find the sovereignty of God in predestination... proven through prophecy.  Only a sovereign God who predestined the entire history of man, could prophecy the future events of mankind over a 7,000 year period 100% accurately.  That would be impossible if man had free will.

Predestination or Free Will?  One is the truth, the other is lie.  You decide (pun intended).

Don't take my word for it... take the King's:

John 15:18-19 "You did not chose Me, but I chose you and appointed
