(NKJV and KJV Scripture)

– Declaring the end from the beginning – and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, “My counsel shall stand – and I shall do all My pleasure.” – Isaiah 46:10

– That which has been – is now; and that which is to be – has already been … and God requires that which is past. – Ecclesiastes 3:15

God declared the end of this earth from the very beginning (lead verse).  There is never anything new under His sun (Ecclesiastes 1:9). The Lord has seen it all before; and has already seen what is coming down the road.  Known to God are all His works from the beginning – they were finished by Him before He started – before He formed the foundation of this planet (Acts 15:18, Hebrews 4:3).

Whatever has happened in this world, or to us in the past – good, bad, or in-between – was required by Him (second lead verse).  What is coming in the future requires faith (Hebrews 11:1).  If we ever definitively decide we know before He does – that is prejudging and presumption (Proverbs 27:1, James 4:14).  All things must pass per His judgement, including us (Hebrews 9:27) – His way; not ours.

Everything past, present, or future – has to have purpose – or how else would He be qualified to judge us daily (Zephaniah 3:5) – or this world when the time comes (Romans 3:5-6)?  Would we want a Creator to make peace – then create war, without any cause to do so (Isaiah 45:7)?  As if our just God did such “just because” – without any justification. Don’t some people still seem to believe this?

Everything that happens to us or this planet each day – or doesn’t happen, is going perfectly and precisely according to His plan from the beginning of the world.  Just because life isn’t going perfectly and precisely according to our own personal plans, in our own little worlds; even within the church – doesn’t make us right – and God wrong (1 Chronicles 13:4, Proverbs 21:2).
