Biblical Faith – with Shmuel “Sam” Peak
Emunah channel is here. For Info www.torahfaith.org
I have found in the Scriptures on the subject of compulsion and predetermination, control and will, that all [these] are G-d’s in respect to all that He has created, whether mineral or vegetable, animal or rational, as it is written:
Whatever G-d willed, He did — in heaven and on earth (Tehillim 135:6); G-d puts to death and brings life; He casts down into the graves and raises up. G-d makes poor and makes rich; He brings low, He also exalts (Shmuel 1, 2:6-7); Who has spoken and it come to pass, unless G-d has commanded it? Is it not from the mouth of the Most High that good and evil come? (Eichah 3:37-38); I form light and create darkness, I make peace, and create evil (Yeshiyahu 45:7); Unless G-d builds the house, its builders toll in vain on it. Unless G-d watches over the city, the watchman stays on alert in vain. It is in vain that you rise up early and stay up late, you who eat bread of anxious toil; for He grants sleep to His beloved (Tehillim 127:1-2).
