1/7/17 God’s Mercy – Not For Everyone?

“Pharaoh, the king of Egypt who enslaved the Israelites, was placed in power by God, who knew his heart before he was born and knew that He could use this wicked man to save His people.  The Scriptures tell us, ‘For this very purpose I have raised you up, that I may show My power in you, and that My Name may be declared in all the earth.’  He knew that Pharaoh’s heart would never soften to Him, never surrender to His rule, no matter how Pharaoh was raised or what the circumstances of his life were.  Just as He will have mercy on whom He will have mercy, He will withhold His mercy from whom He will withhold it.”
