Scriptural Misconception

Scripture Misconception

In the Book of Romans, there is a passage that reads, Romans 9:21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honor, and another unto dishonor?

The general belief is that this verse speaks of differentiating between the saved and unsaved or those lost in sin and those saved from sin. It might sound good but there is a great smell of untruth there.

God is the Potter and He has power over all things. He has complete and perfect power over Satan. The devil cannot do anything outside the Will of God. Every person is powerless to be outside the Will of God. We are all sinners, hard headed and mortal. We are all these things because God made us that way in order to redeem us from sin and death.

So allow me to explain to you this verse about the clay of honor and dishonor. We are mortal and corrupted as in "all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." We were made this way and in truth the Word states there are none righteous and none that seek after God and His righteousness. So let the silly notion any of you are saved vessels of honor go right out the door. The vessels of honor are our bodies upon the resurrection of the dead. Whereby the vessels of dishonor will put on perfection as the old passes away. Without any doing of our own we will all be changed in the twinkling of an eye as all things become new and perfect. We will therefore become the vessels of honor spoken of in this verse. Our redemption and reconciliation is one of honor for all eternity!
