God is the Source.
But He often uses agents to do His work.September 23, 2009 at 10:58 pm #147174
I pasted this from t8 here too
“God is the redeemer and Jesus is the agent of God's redemption.
2 Corinthians 5:19
that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men's sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.
Jesus said, “take this cup from me, but not MY will but YOUR will”.
God willed it. Jesus obeyed.
11 Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand. They encircled the throne and the living creatures and the elders. 12 In a loud voice they sang:
“Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain,
to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength
and honor and glory and praise!”
13 Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, singing:
“To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb
be praise and honor and glory and power,
for ever and ever!” “April 12, 2012 at 7:33 pm #291869
This principle needs to be understood as it underlies the ways of God.
