“If Anyone Says…”

“If Anyone Says…”

Blessings folk!

Jesus has sent two disciples to fetch a colt.

They did.
They found everything to be exactly how Jesus said it would be.

One point from the fetching account deserves closer attention.

When instructing the disciples about finding the colt, Jesus said…

Mar 11:3
“If anyone says to you, ‘Why are you doing this?’ you say,
‘The Lord has need of it’; and immediately he will send it back here.”

Why did Jesus say “if”?
Was it possible?
Was it not possible?
Did He know?
Did He not know?

This is one of many examples that we find in the Word that give insight into two subjects that many avoid.


Examples such as this (and others in the word) show that foreknowledge and predestination are separable.

One author put it this way…
“that which never happens can be foreknown by God, but it is not predestined since it never happened.” (Heiser)

God has foreknowledge of all that could possibly happen.
All variations of past, present, future.

Such is the Most High God.

Worship Him!
