Message 99:5-6

The long planning and covenant of God shall have its fulfillment. His Kingdom shall roll forth until it fills the whole earth and all mankind shall obey his will. I speak light and life, will they hear it?

God has a plan. His plan entails his gospel spreading too all the ends of the earth. It will reach every spot. People will listen and follow the truth. The question is will you be one of the ones that listen or will you be one of the ones that don’t?

    I wonder ! when it is said that people who do not believe will be forever condemned and burn in hell for all eternity , how it is at the same time Gods plan that ALL people shall listen and follow the truth ,Jesus Christ died for ALL people ,even the ones that do not believe ,but WILL , God is all LOVE and all MERCY , if even a small part of his creation would not receive his mercy , where then is his mercy , it is not given in portions ,infinite mercy and infinite love can only be given in like manner , for he is not a God of portions ,when you say that people will listen and follow the truth , then it is understood to be so ,
    there is no ” if “

    No all will be saved. There are several places in the scriptures where it talks how there will be people who don’t make it to heaven. The belief that just because God loves us all that we all are going to make it to heaven is false. When a child does something wrong a parents punishes that child, because that parent loves the child.

    It cannot be that even one of Gods creation perishes ,that would be the same as to give satan a victory over God , for satan is the cause of the fall , scripture says that Jesus payed for the redemption of ALL people , Rom 8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. The sons of God are the elect of God chosen from the foundation of the world, and the first to be redeemed ,,,,
    Rom 8:20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,
    Rom 8:21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

    The following in Luke and Revelation make it clear that not everyone will make it into heaven. Christ did die for all of mankind, but each person must choose to follow Christ to receive that salvation. There will be lots of people who think that they are going to be with Christ on the last day but Christ will say no. God is an orderly God, he cannot change his plan so it affects people differently. When you hear of the Gospel you have to follow it to receive the salvation. If everyone made it to heaven what is the point of the action required of the gospel?

    Luke 13:23-28
    “Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are: Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.”

    Revelation 20:12-15
    “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. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”

    God made the hebrew people his own people ,and Jesus came to his own,, but they rejected him so God rejected them ,and they were scattered over the entire world , God has thru Jesus Christ once again made himself a people thru the salvation we have in Christ Jesus they are Gods own elect ,they have become sons of god thru adoption into Gods own family ,in the OT times when the gentiles were without God ,called uncircumcised they were outside looking in ,we have again the same condition where , we as adopted children now can say that we belong to God ,and the rest has their minds blinded ,and can not see or hear , and the Hebrews ,Gods people of old are outside looking in , but scripture says that they will again be included ,for even though God has rejected them he will not give them up completely , and so i believe it is with the rest of the people , God has a specific purpose with us his chosen people , the rest i cannot believe that God will burn them up , in revelation it says that hell and death will be cast in to the lake of fire , then after that hell and death are gone , God said to the hebrews i hate your sacrifices i don’t want your blood and your incense ,understand this i want MERCY , why didn’t he destroy Adam ? because he loved his creation ,, he cursed the ground , but later he removed the curse and had compassion on his people, infinite love and mercy cannot act any different ,i believe that when we read scripture we need to read with this in mind and try to understand Gods nature ,pray that the holy spirit will lead us into all truth ,,Amen
