Today, we will be looking into what free will means and how free
will affects Christians?
15 For He saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy,
and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.
16 So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that
runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.
So, God will have Mercy on whomever He chooses.
Easy enough. But, it also says: It is not of him
that willeth or him that runneth?
It sounds like this is saying that another person’s will, words or
works (whether it be the soul being given the Grace or another’s)
will not determine or hinder God’s Grace from being bestowed as God
Here is a Christian Free Will Bible study tidbit of truth ... This
suggests that another human’s will, words and works do not define our
destiny. What is the truth? Let us look within the Biblical free will Bible verses to discover
the free will truth.
Another interesting aspect of God’s will is. God uses whoever He
wants to have His will to come to pass. Even those whom most may find
to be unrighteous people.
17 For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose
have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and
that my name might be declared throughout all the earth.
hath He mercy on whom He will have mercy, and whom He will He
God allowed Pharaoh to do what was done as to be able to show His
power to all down the road. This brings to mind something Jesus
answered the Apostles:
1 And as Jesus passed by, He saw a man which was blind from
2 And His disciples asked Him, saying, Master, who
did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?
3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his
parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest
This man was blinded for his entire life just for that very day as
for God to receive glory.
What is Christian Free Will Bible Study Warning
Why Do We Have Free Will Bible Verses Answer
This brings to mind and heart a question which is asked by many doubting
souls who write us. It just happens to be the next verse as well:
Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth He yet find fault? For who
hath resisted His will?
The question is, how do humans have free will, if God’s will cannot
be resisted. If called Christians are being used as pieces of a
Spiritual chess match, for righteous causes (such as the Apostles)
and for what most deem as bad such as when God used Pharaoh and
Nebuchadnezzar? The answer is within the next verse:
20 Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against
God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed
it, Why hast thou made me thus?
21 Hath not the potter
power over the clay, of the same lump to make one
vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?
Who are we to question God’s choices, will or motives.
22 What if God, willing to shew His wrath, and to make
His power known, endured with much longsuffering the
vessels of wrath fitted to destruction:
23 And that He
might make known the riches of His glory on the
vessels of Mercy, which He had afore prepared unto
How about a Christian Free Will Bible study trivia question for you
... There is a question in the minds and hearts of many Christians
... Do we, as Christians have Free Will or are all of our Choices
In other words ... Do we have the freedom to choose or are our
choices made for us by cause, circumstance and external
factors leading to a destiny already planned out for us?
This ideology that there is a pre-determined plan for our lives and
we are just sojourning down this pre-determined path is what is
titled by many as Determinism.
You see ... We Christians believe that God is omniscience or all
knowing and therefore knows what is going to happen before
it does. So He has determined what is to be.
We believe this because He has prophesied future events
throughout the Bible.
9 Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is
none else; I am God, and there is none like me,
10 Declaring the end
from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not
yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my
It is obvious that God does know what will be in the End.
So, the next Christian Free Will Bible study question becomes
... Do we really have free will and if so, why do we have free will?
Can free will exist on a predetermined path?
Many Religious researchers, like to ask ... If God has already
determined what is to be, how is it that humans have Free Will ...
Which is the ability to freely choose to do our own will.
Why do we have free will Bible debate
Well, I have another Christian Free Will Bible study question for you. Why must it be one or the other? Is it because mankind’s limited
carnal mind has such limited Spiritual insight? Why do some tend to put God in a little box and limit Him to their understanding?
What if Fate is the result of our day to day choices that we make
by applying our free will, which our Lord allows us to use. But,
destiny is where we will be in the end and God knows that outcome.
Let’s be honest ... God did give man Free Will to make their own
Choices from the start ...
Adam and Eve were given Free Will.
16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the
garden thou mayest freely eat:
17 But of the tree of the knowledge of
good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou
eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
These Biblical free will Bible verses reveal that God commanded that
they not do something and yet said IF they chose to do so, they would
suffer consequences of said choice. We all know that they
did exercise their free will and chose to eat from the forbidden tree.
And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it
was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise,
she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto
her husband with her; and he did eat.
Their choice ... Has affected every human born from that day on. Due to this free will Choice made by the first man and woman ... The
Sin is now in the flesh of all mankind and when we are born, we are
destined to death ...
Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death
by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have
Another Christian Free Will Bible study warning ... We must make the
choice to believe in Jesus of our own free will. When we become
Christians, we are reborn and receive Salvation
and Everlasting Eternal Life. This absolutely awe inspiring, extremely exciting and merciful Biblical prophecy which was fulfilled called the New
Covenant of Grace has completely changed the deadly destiny of death as it was made wholly
void by the Blood
So, Adam and eve did have free will and their choice did have
consequences that changed the destiny of all humans.
But ... God has given us another way to return to the original
predestined path before Adam and Eve’s choice altered the destiny.
But, we must use our free will yet again and choose to believe in Jesus.
Another Christian free will Bible verses example is, God promised Abraham a son would be conceived by Sarah.
But ... Sarah and Abraham utilized their free will and chose to take matters in their own hands;
And Sarai said unto Abram, Behold now, the Lord hath restrained me
from bearing: I pray thee, go in unto my maid; it may be that I
may obtain children by her. And Abram hearkened to the voice of Sarai.
Here is a Christian Free Will Bible study fact ... The chain of
events resulting from their exercising Free Will and their choice had
another bloodline created through that child (Ishmael) which are
still warring with the Israel to this day. Of Course God did keep His
promise to Abraham and Sarah bore a child named Isaac.
Even Angels have free will ...
That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that
they were fair; and they took them wives of all which
The free will Bible verses tell us that there were also Free will offerings:
18 Speak unto Aaron, and to his sons, and unto all the children of
Israel, and say unto them, Whatsoever he be of the house of Israel,
or of the strangers in Israel, that will offer his oblation for all
his vows, and for all his freewill offerings, which they will
offer unto the Lord for a burnt offering;
19 Ye shall offer at your
own will a male without blemish, of the beeves, of the sheep, or
of the goats.
20 But whatsoever hath a blemish, that shall ye not offer:
for it shall not be acceptable for you.
21 And whosoever offereth a
sacrifice of peace offerings unto the Lord to accomplish his vow, or
a freewill offering in beeves or sheep, it shall be perfect to
be accepted; there shall be no blemish therein.
22 Blind, or broken, or
maimed, or having a wen, or scurvy, or scabbed, ye shall not offer
these unto the Lord, nor make an offering by fire of them upon the
altar unto the Lord.
23 Either a bullock or a lamb that hath any thing
superfluous or lacking in his parts, that mayest thou offer for a
freewill offering; but for a vow it shall not be accepted.
That which is gone out of thy lips thou shalt keep and perform; even
a freewill offering, according as thou hast vowed unto the
Lord thy God, which thou hast promised with thy mouth.
4 They kept also the feast of tabernacles, as it is written, and
offered the daily burnt offerings by number, according to the custom,
as the duty of every day required;
5 And afterward offered the
continual burnt offering, both of the new moons, and of all the set
feasts of the Lord that were consecrated, and of every one that
willingly offered a freewill offering unto the Lord.
And what of the Free Will offerings “of the mouth” ...
Accept, I beseech thee, the freewill offerings of my mouth, O
Lord, and teach me thy judgments.

Free will to choose righteousness or wickedness:
18 When the righteous turneth from his righteousness, and
committeth iniquity, he shall even die thereby.
19 But if
the wicked turn from his wickedness, and do that which

Another Christian Free Will Bible study tidbit of truth ... The
New Testament is also filled with parables of Jesus which
reveal this Free Will where man is given the ability to
Here is but one of the Biblical free will Bible verses example ...
2 The Kingdom of Heaven is like unto a certain king, which
made a marriage for his son,
3 And sent forth his servants to call them
that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.
4 Again, he
sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden,
Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are
killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.
5 But they
made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to
6 And the remnant took his servants, and entreated
them spitefully, and slew them.
7 But when the king heard thereof, he
was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those
murderers, and burned up their city.
8 Then saith he to his servants,
The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.
ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to
10 So those servants went out into the highways, and
gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and
the wedding was furnished with guests.
11 And when the king came in to
see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding
12 And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not
having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
13 Then said the king
to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast
him into outer darkness, there shall be weeping and gnashing of
14 For many are called, but few are chosen.
Many are called but few are chosen ... because few choose.
A little Christian free will Bible study reminder; Man must be able to choose and to do so willingly.
But without thy mind would I do nothing; that thy benefit
should not be as it were of necessity, but willingly.
Every aspect of Christianity, we are asked to willing choose to act.
2 Corinthians 9:7
Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give;
not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a
A Christian Free Will Bible fact ... People will have Free Will to choose, right up to and even through the End of Times.
20 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet
repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not
worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone,
and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:
repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of
their fornication, nor of their thefts.
Then there are those who exercise their free will to serve the Lord
and even choose to die for Him.
And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and
judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of
them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and
for the Word of God, and which had not worshiped the
beast, neither his image, neither had received his
mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they
lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
Here is yet another Christian free will Bible study on the free will
Bible verses we have been reading trivia question ... Still believe
we do not have Free Will to choose? Then why does the Lord say that those who overcome will not have
their names blotted out of the Book of Life?
He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and
I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I
will confess his name before my Father, and before His Angels.
Think about it ... If we did not have Free Will, there would be no reason for judgment
because if our path was predestined and we did not have Free Will.
Why would we be punished, unless the choice was ours?
And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books
were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life:
and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in
the books, according to their works.
So the judgment is based on choices made. Christian Free Will Bible verses share that we do
have Free Will and we are to choose the right path. And whosoever Will:
And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him
that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst
come. And whosoever will,
let him take the water of life freely.
This Christian Free Will Bible study sharing various Biblical free
will Bible verses has provided the answer to the age old question of
why do we have free will. Believing it is up to you. The choice is
yours, because ... You have free will.
