To embrace the doctrine of predestination and accept that God chooses not to predestine some to heaven is already something difficult to swallow, yet if we take a closer look at Romans, Chapter 9, a greater issue arises. This is something we have avoided all this while and dared not ask God – Did God harden the heart of those predestined unto destruction, made them incapable of believing in the Lord and caused them to perish in hell?

Regardless whether it is a person, a tribe or a nation, no matter how ungodly or how much they hated God, they would never be able to free themselves from the control of the almighty God. Even if they should go all out to oppose God to become His arch-enemies, God’s plans and His work shall continue to prosper and not be upset or affected by their actions. Instead, their evil ploys would often be further used by God to accomplish His perfect will...

Matthew / Chapter 21 / V28-32

“What do you think? There was a man who had two sons. He went to the first and said, 'Son, go and work today in the vineyard.' " 'I will not,' he answered, but later he changed his mind and went. "Then the father went to the other son and said the same thing. He answered, 'I will, sir,' but he did not go. "Which of the two did what his father wanted?" "The first," they answered. Jesus said to them, "I tell you the truth, the tax collectors and the prostitutes are entering the kingdom of God ahead of you. For John came to you to show you the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him, but the tax collectors and the prostitutes did. And even after you saw this, you did not repent and believe him.”
