 “You are the Lord, you alone; you have  made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them; and you preserve all of them; and the host of  heaven worships you”
(Nehemiah 9:6).

Hand of GodGeneral Providence

In Acts 17:24-28, the Apostle Paul presents four significant doctrines that greatly affect how we view the world and live out our faith. In brief these are:

1. Creation — “God made the world;”

We would appreciate your donation.

2. Lordship — “He is Lord of heaven and earth;”

3. Providence — “He Himself gives to all life and breath and all things; . . . for in Him we live and move and exist;”

4. Sovereignty — “He made . . . every nation . . . having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation.” It is extremely important for Christians to understand each of these, and the implications they have for our lives and for society.

Most Americans today are not familiar with the word providence, in use or meaning. The Founders of America used this word often and understood well what it meant.

About the Author

Virginia Christian Alliance
The mission of the VIRGINIA CHRISTIAN ALLIANCE is to promote moral, social and scientific issues we face today from a Biblical point of view. In addition we will refute and oppose, not with hate, but with facts and humor, the secular cultural abuses that have overridden laws and standards of conduct of the past. We will encourage Christians to participate in these efforts through conferences, development of position papers, booklets and tracts, radio/TV spots, newspaper ads and articles and letters-to-the editor, web sites, newsletters and providing speakers for church and civic meetings.
