When the Master arrived on earth, He twisted everyone’s concept of God.
Occasionally, as I surf online and find articles of interest, I will download them, hoping I will eventually read them at an appropriate time.
An appropriate time just happened, and I fell into the following list I had saved from one of my surfing excursions. Although the intent of the author is to give scriptural credence to the belief of Salvation of All through Jesus Christ, the list hit me with how different the Master is from me.
Read the verses below, (I have left the authors comments in for effect) and consider Who He is. (and who we are not.)
1 Tim 2:4
God will have all to be saved.
Can His will be thwarted?
1 Tim 2:4
God desires all to come to the knowledge of truth
Will His desire come to pass?
1 Tim 2:6
Salvation of all is testified in due time
Are we judging God before due time?
Jesus came to save all
Will He succeed?
God works all after the counsel of His will
Can your will overcome His?
Jesus is Savior of the world
Can He be Savior of all without saving all?
1 Jn 4:14
Jesus is Savior of the world
Why don’t we believe it?
Jesus will draw all mankind unto Himself
To roast or to love?
By Him all were created
Will He lose a part of His creation?
In Adam all condemned, in Christ all live
The same all?
In Adam all die, in Christ all live
Again, the same all?
All come into Him at the fullness of times
Are you getting tired of seeing the word, all?
Every tongue shall confess Jesus is Lord
Will the Holy Spirit be given to everyone?
1 Cor 12:3
Cannot confess except by Holy Spirit
See what I mean?
All Israel will be saved
But most Jews don’t believe yet!
Restitution of all
How plain can you get?
Jesus will be joy to all people
Is there joy is “hell”?
All will know God
How long, O Lord?
His grace shown in the ages to come
Have we judged Him before the time?
Grace has appeared to all
Experientially to prophetically?
Creation set at liberty
How much of creation?
All reconciled unto God
There’s that word “all” again.
All will have praise of God
End of the Lord is full of mercy
Is “hell” mercy?
All nations worship when God’s judgments are seen
Could His judgment be mercy?
All subject to unbelief,
mercy on all All?
All out of, through, and into Him
All into Him?
Jesus will fill all things
All creation seen praising God
God will be all in all
What does that mean, preacher?
No more tears, all things made new
“All” made new?
All dead who hear will live
How many will hear?
All in the grave will hear & come forth
How will the “righteous” judge, judge?
1 Cor 3:15
All saved, so as by fire
How can fire save you?
Everyone shall be salted with fire
Reconciliation of the world
Will fire save the world instead of destroy it?
2 Cor 5:15
Jesus died for all
Did He die in vain?
Jesus always does what pleases His Father
What pleases the Father? (1Tim 2:4)
Jesus is Heir of all things
Do “things” include people?
All has been given into Jesus’ hands
Can you accept this?
Jesus gives eternal life to all that His Father gave Him
How many did the Father give Him?
The Father gave Him all things
Study the word “things” in the Greek.
1 Tim 4:9-11
Jesus is Savior of all!
Can’t seem to get away from that word “all.”
Jesus is able to save to the uttermost
How far is “uttermost?”
1 Cor 15:26
Last enemy, death, will be destroyed
Including “lake of fire” which is “second death?”
God will do all His pleasure
Does Old Testament agree with the New?
All families of the earth will be blessed
Here comes that word “all” again.
God’s will done in heaven and earth
What can defeat His will?
Enemies will submit to God
Can any stay rebellious in “hell?”
God turns man to destruction, then says return
How can one return from “destruction?”
Will destroy veil spread over all nations
He kills and makes alive
Kills to bring life?
God fashions all hearts
“All” hearts, including men like “Hitler?”
Man devises, God directs his steps
What about “free will?”
Man devises, but God’s counsel stands
So much for “free will.”
God will not cast off forever
Why does He cast off in the first place? (1 Cor 11)
All nations shall flow to the Lord’s house
All nations will worship Him
All descendants of Israel justified
Including the wicked ones?
All kings will praise God
Are you catching on?
All flesh will come to God
That sounds wondrous.
God only does wondrous things
I wish we would believe that.
Egypt & Assyria will be restored
Sodom will be restored to former estate
Nothing is too difficult for Him
Nothing? No, nothing!
All ends of the earth will turn to Him
For what purpose?
All families will worship before Him
Praise His name!
He is good to all
Including your worst enemies.
His mercies are over all his works
Let’s start believing that.
He raises all who fall
Who hasn’t fallen in sin?
All His works will praise Him
For “eternal torment?”
Lord makes a feast for all people
And you are invited.
Never entered His mind to torture his children with fire
This came from the carnal mind.
No one can come to Him unless He draws them
You can’t “chose” to follow Him.
I will draw all mankind unto Myself
God does what pleases Him
If it pleases Him to save all that He might be in all, are you upset?
Drop me a line to discuss.
Personally, I find the volume of verses supplied above to be daunting, and somewhat revealing as to the lack of His character I have acquired in my walk with Him. He is so far above us and without equal!
