When God Does Not Allow The Gospel To Be Sent

The not sending of the gospel to any people, is an act regulated by that eternal purpose of God whereby he determineth to advance the glory of his justice, by permitting some men to sin, to continue in their sin, and for sin to send them to their own place ;—as a king’s not sending a pardon to condemned malefactors is an issue of his purpose that they shall die for their faults. When you see the gospel strangely, and through wonderful varieties and unexpected providences, carried away from a people, know that the spirit which moves in those wheels is that purpose of God.

~John Owen

from a sermon entitled A Vision of Unchangeable, Free Mercy ; Volume 8, pages 14-15
