Dear Brother Jonathan and our dear friends and our lovely supporters and of all team,
Greetings to you all in the Name of Jesus trusting that you are all doing fine in the Lord Jesus Christ. We all appreciate your humble and kind consideration of the orphans and widows here in Kenya by showing us and the orphans plus the widows that they are also son and daughters of God and valued by Him God. This has deeply encouraged and challenged the orphans especially those in high schools who really did well in class performance as well as those in primary schools as we wait for others who will be sitting for their class eight examinations which we expect good results . Friends this noble work you have been used by God to do to us here in Kenya Bungoma.
The Decree Of God is His purpose or determination with respect to future things. We have used the singular number as Scripture does (Rom. 8:28; Ephesians 3:11), because there was only one act of His infinite mind about future things. But we speak as if there had been many, because our minds are only capable of thinking of successive revolutions, as thoughts and occasions arise, or in reference to the various objects of His decree, being many, they seem to us to require a distinct purpose for each. But an infinite understanding does not proceed by steps, from one stage to another: "Known unto God are all His works, from the beginning of the world" (Acts 15:18).
The Scriptures mention the decrees of God in many passages, and in a variety of terms. The word "decree" is found in Psalm 2:7. In Ephesians 3:11 we see His "eternal purpose;" in Acts 2:23, His "determinate counsel and foreknowledge;" in Ephesians 1:9, the mystery of His "will;" in Romans 8:29 that He also did "predestinate;" in Ephesians 1:9, His "good pleasure." God’s decrees are called His "counsel" to signify they are consummately wise. They are called God’s "will" to show He was under no control, but acted according to His own pleasure. When a man’s will is the rule of his conduct, it is usually capricious and unreasonable; but wisdom is always associated with will in the divine proceedings, and accordingly, God’s decrees are said to be "the counsel of his own will" (Eph. 1:11).
