heb 02v16 He Took on Him The Seed of Abraham
"HE TOOK ON HIM THE SEED OF ABRAHAM" Hebrews
God our Savior reserves the right of absolute sovereignty in the exercise of his saving mercy and in the exercise of his saving mercy and in the application of his grace. As he is sovereign in creation and in providence, our God is also totally sovereign in the salvation of sinners. You cannot read the Bible without being confronted with the fact of Divine sovereignty on almost every page. Here is one example: When our Lord Jesus Christ came to save fallen creatures, he passed by the fallen angels and laid hold upon the seed of Abraham. He did not take hold of the seed of Adam; but "HE TOOK ON HIM THE SEED OF ABRAHAM", God's elect, his covenant people, and delivered them from the bondage of death by the efficacy of his sin-atoning sacrifice and by the power of his irresistible grace. This is sovereign grace indeed: Christ passed by the fallen angels, passed by the sons of Adam, and took hold upon
the seed of Abraham!
