Hell and the Goodness of God

June 24, 2012

MARK 9:43-44  And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:  Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

Many are believing a lie that is so big and has been told for so long, that it keeps one from seeing the true gospel in anywhere near the fullness of its richness and the brightness of its glory.  I hope you will begin to see this deception and how it holds men back from living and serving in the example of the Lord.   Sorry for the length but this is not something I  could explain in a short post and even still  I had to leave many confirming witnesses out.

These Scriptures in Mark simply state that if you practice sin, you will not enter into the peace and rest of the Lord Jesus Christ.  Far better to change our mind and deeds (REPENT), symbolized by chopping off a hand or plucking out an eye, and enter into the eternal life that is found only in Christ.  These words are not intended to be taken literally nor is the hell they speak of a literal hell of the carnal mind.  Jesus is the prince of peace and has come to show us the way to the peace that transcends all understanding.  We can enter into this kingdom right now.  It was near at the very door 2,000 years ago.  Far too many have become victims of religion and have not entered in and our keeping others from entering in based on carnal understandings and man’s traditions.

Matthew 23:15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves

Until we truly come to know Christ deep in our spirit, such a person will be living in constant inner torment and will never find the true Sabbath rest that only comes from abiding in Christ.  Many fake it and do have varying degrees of peaceful periods,  yet still fall short of finding the true rest in Christ.  In this sense, being a child of hell has nothing to do with a literal never ending punishment by a wrathful God for billions upon billions of years.  What foolishness that we could be so deceived to think that God would ever act in such a way.  Such a belief violates ever attribute of God’s character and His righteous and just judgments.  Such a punishment is not just by any measure of reasoning.  Yet most believe that is what these Scripture teach because that is the lens our 30,000 denominations have filtered the Bible for hundreds of years.  Be they of the Calvinistic persuasion or an Armenian persuasion, many preachers stand before congregations in churches or online mediums and spew forth this centuries old lie.  Now that I see it clearly, it is sickening and I am ashamed of my own prior deceptions and contributing to spiritual darkness.   But God had other plans for me and created circumstances that I could be rescued from this error.  The devil has deceived the whole world.  This view of hell and God’s judgment is an absolute false understanding of the Scriptures, the core of the gospel and the very nature of God.

I can speak to this error and help pull the specks out of eyes on this issue because use I lived in this error for a very long time.  The doctrine of a never ending torment and punishment is a bad news gospel.  This gospel never leads to true peace and only puffs up men and encourages external forms of godliness in many who can help God out in their flesh.  I seek nobody’s approval in sharing this with you.  This truth will be vehemently rejected by the carnal mind and will come against traditional church doctrine and also the doctrine of many who have been called out the harlotry of religion.   But getting free of this error about hell is a key missing link that will lead to a humble heart and a contrite Spirit submitted unto the Lord.  When you realize God’s purpose in judgments and how He brings them about, the boasting and speaking evil of others will stop.

It is so much better to abide in Jesus Christ right now than to live a miserable life in this body of flesh.  Life is not a bitch and then you die — yet that is the lens of belief that many have come to follow in this life.  Sadly many that profess faith in Jesus and the gospel.  So many think that self abasement and having a miserable life is  what forsaking the world is all about.  That is not the case but I will have to wait to say more on that topic later.   The god if this world has been allowed by the true God to blind the people of this earth to the true gospel.  The truth is only revealed to us when we can come to Christ and rest in Him, believing not only who HE is but what He promised.  But this is only at the will and the discretion of the potter who is the Lord.  The clay doesn’t get to decide that.

Make no mistake our God is a consuming fire.  It is this very fire that purifies and a part of that is the righteous judgment of God.  I have been judged and continue to be judged and disciplined and shaped by my Father in heaven.  He is doing to the same to all of you reading this whether you realize this yet or not.  God has rescued me from the error of wicked religious men and put a fire in me that is burning away the veil and the sin in my life that keeps us in spiritual darkness (blindness).  I like Paul, only see in part and can only prophecy in part as through a glass dimly– but I see a lot clearer than I saw several months ago.  Logs of pride, self-righteousness and a false image of the love of God will keep anyone in the dark.  I joyfully share this with you and know it will take root for those God has prepared to hear it.

THE GOOD NEWS

The gospel is very good news.  It is not just good news for a few.  It is good news for all of God’s creation.   If you doubt this go back and read again the promises given to Abraham that Peter cited in ACTS 3.  God is much bigger than man.  Christ is much greater than Adam.  His ways are not our ways which really speaks to His enduring mercy and character.  This is real good.

Romans 5:18-19 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon ALL MEN to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon ALL MEN unto justification of life.  19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.

Ironic how we can easily accept that through Adam sin entered all men.  Yet God’s purposed remedy in sending His own Son to reconcile all men back to Him cannot be embraced by man who thinks he has to save himself.  What folly.  God is not going to be defeated in bringing about His will.  Thank God we all will have this victory in time through the Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that ALL should come to repentance.

What greater glory to God is there then to reconcile all things back to Himself?  Do you really think God sending 99% of people to an eternal torment in a literal hell brings glory to God?  This would mean that God did not get His will accomplished, that He was defeated in that quest.  Such a lie gives life to the beast and a false image of god, not the true living God who is all powerful and for whom nothing is impossible.  Where does it say God is limited by physical death?  Hebrews 9:27 does not say any such thing. Indeed we have many examples showing HE is not so limited by death.  Oh the folly of wise men and the deceptions of their foolish hearts.  The following is some of the most profound Scripture you will never read the same way again once you get past this damnable lie.

1 COR 15:21-16  For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ SHALL ALL be made alive. 23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming. 24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. 25 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. 26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.

It is finished my friends.  Jesus prayed Father forgive them.  Do you really think the Father did not forgive the Jews and sent them to an eternal torment that will never end?  No,  they are forgiven just as you and I are forgiven.  There will be second fruits after the firstfruits.   They missed out on the blessings in their physical life but they are not going to be punished for billions upon billions of years.  That is what the devil wants you to believe.   I don’t dismiss the judgments of God as indeed I have written about them much.  I have learned how they work and operate through my own disobedience and bearing the consequences of sin.

Knowing that hell is not a literal never-ending torment, what kind of life should we live?  A holy and righteous life, one full of love and mercy.  We were put here to serve others.  Jesus came to serve not to be served.  We are to all to be conformed into the likeness and image of Jesus.  That is God’s desire, and He will do it, He will not fail.  Nobody is going to outwit or out will God before it is all over my friends.  The righteous judgment of God,  His very wrath does abide upon the sons of disobedience and will stay there until HE gets the victory over all.  His fires will consume the fuel that is sin and wickedness out of all hearts.  Hearts and minds will be changed by the power of God (grace) in this life and the ages to come.  One day it will be evident for all to see.  This is the blessed hope.

Phil 2:10-11 That at the name of Jesus EVERY knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;  And that EVERY tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Paul goes on to tell us how God brings this about.  He is the changer of hearts,  He is the one who draws us and creates circumstances that will change our will.  His hand is not too short to save all.

Phil 2:12-13 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. 13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

It is all by God.  We all should be praising God for the Spirit He gave us and for the promises of the complete and total victory over sin and the rebellion of His children.  Believing in the lie of eternal torment in hell is not good news any way you rationalize it.  It is not good news to the Muslims; it is not good news to the Atheists’ or the Hindus.  But the true gospel is good news for all mankind.  Holding to this lie will keep you in fear and trusting in your own strength and intelligence to find God.

God’s Righteous Judgments

Psalm 19:9-11 The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.  More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.  Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.

The judgments of God are not contrary to the true nature and character of a loving God.  His judgments serve a purpose and that is to turn our hearts to Him in repentance.  God has the ability to turn up the heat and bring judgment to us in ways we scarcely understand.  Like an earthly father with high standards of moral behavior, our Father in heaven has laid His standard in His law and commandments.

The fear of the Lord is a very good thing.  We learn it by making mistakes and enduring the law of reaping and sowing.  At 56 years old, I get this and know this is an immutable law of the universe.  All sin and rebellion has consequences.  We are forgiven as Jesus already paid the debt, yet we will endure the consequences of our continued sin.  It is far beyond the purposes to explain here, but consider a simple example.  If we smoke cigarettes, God forgives us, yet we may pay a price with a serious illness or cancer later in life.    I just lost a dear brother and distant relative to throat cancer who was absolutely a man of God who had learned to love God with his whole heart.  Yet he bore the consequence of sin.  But the good news is,  we shall see him again with the Lord!.

There will be a serious judgment when Christ returns.  Many will be cast into the lake of fire and will be beaten with many stripes. There will be suffering and we should absolutely fear falling into the hands of a living God for this judgment.  We must choose to live righteousness daily and come thru the furnace of affliction here in this life or else we will have to do it in the next life after physical death.  I for one am thankful God never leaves us or forsakes us.  He is always there and brings righteous judgment to turn us from our wickedness and purify our hearts.  The more we rebel, the hotter the flames of judgment, a literal hell on earth become.  But as the Psalmist wrote above, once you understand, these judgments are sweeter than honey. 

Getting Clear About Hell

Christ spoke of hell several times.  Yet He also spoke of the love and the forgiveness that only a loving God can pour out of His children.  But to think hell is a place of eternal torment where God is going to punish people for billions upon billions of years is not taught anywhere in Scriptures.  It is not taught and the same deep study of Greek can clearly show some of the flaws in man’s translations.  But I don’t need to see it in a book; this is truth that brings peace to our hearts when we believe this gospel.  Eternal never ending punishment is a false doctrine. One would have to ignore hundreds of Scriptures to the contrary to hold to such a doctrine.   Our spiritual walk with Christ leading in our hearts is how we enter into the kingdom.  This kingdom is within our hearts said Jesus.

Luke 17:20-21 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

Jesus did accurately state that only very few would enter in by the narrow way.  The vast majority would follow the broad way that leads to destruction.  This destruction is the fires of hell and the living of a life of misery, torment without true peace in your heart.  We either have eternal life dwelling in our hearts or we have death and destruction working in us.  But these words of the Lord do not tell all nor limit God and His ability to carry out His will of our sanctification after death.

Indeed that is the very purpose of the lake of fire.  God is a consuming fire and will bring wrath to His adversaries but this is to bring about His true purposes which are to purify all His people and accomplish His will.  The Lord will not fail.

If you study the origins of hell one can quickly see hell is likened to the place we go at death.  This applies both in physical and spiritual death.  Even Christ was said to be in hell in ACTS 2, but thankfully HE did not stay there.  When spiritually dead, you will be in a living hell inside your heart.  This is spiritual death, the dead men’s bones of the Pharisees.  No joy, no peace, no contentment but on only the worries and negativity that comes from walking in the nature and character of Satan.  The fires and the worm that does not die are all symbolic of a life characterized by bondage, stress and the lack of inner peace.  Most are in this hell right now and as they age, the fires will get hotter and the worms more numerous. But this is the purpose of God and His righteous judgments.  Our loving God, who truly wishes nobody to perish but all to come to repentance, is going to turn the heat up to change the hearts and the will of men, to turn them back to HIM.  Some will continue to disobey and be stubborn in their rebellion and these will at the judgment be thrown into the lake of fire. But ultimately, like all fires, the source of fuel will be burned up and then all that is left will be pure.  This is God’s purposes in all His judgments and the motive is always love.

It is Satan who wants you to believe in the lie of a literal and eternal hell.  This will keep people in bondage to fear all their lives and from coming into the fullness of the love and joy of the Lord.  How could one love a God who will torture their family members forever and ever? These translations of Greek words have for centuries twisted the gospel message.  The deceivers and spirits of antichrist were already in this world and in the church well before the Bible was ever completed much less published to the masses.  Here is one thing Christ came to do.  He did not fail in accomplishing this for those that truly believe.

Hebrews 2:14-15 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;  And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.

When you come to realize that God sees everything and that all sin not put under the blood is instantly judged; you will learn the fear of the Lord and have the beginnings of understanding the truth about hell.  Being in hell is horrible.  Far better to dwell in the richness of spiritual life and true peace through Christ.   But please get clear that hell is not a place of eternal torment where literal flesh bodies are burned literally forever and ever.  This is a doctrine of a demon and makes our God into a monster.  This is totally opposite of the true nature and character of God.

The parable of the rich man and Lazarus in Luke 16 is just that, a parable.  It has nothing to do with an eternal place of never ending torment and everything to do with showing the great divide that separates people from being in God’s comforting presence.  That great divide is faith in the one God has sent.

Luke 12:5  But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear Him who, after He has killed, has power to cast into hell; yes, I say to you, fear Him!

This  is a powerful verse which shows the sovereignty of God over His creation.  He kills and He makes alive.  He afflicts and He heals says the Lord.  We are not to fear men who can only kill the body but fear a Sovereigns God that can kill us spiritually and put the judgment of hell upon us..  But this verse does not negate the enduring attributes of God’s mercy and lovingkindness.  God’s purpose and desire is for all me to be purified and come to repentance.  All of God’s judgments need to be viewed through the lens and filter of the true God of love and grace.

The Lake of Fire

Before the restitution of all things, the final judgment of God is not hell, it is the lake of fire.  This lake is not explained in depth in the Scriptures but whatever it is, we most certainly do not want to end up there.  Hell itself along with death is cast into the lake of fire that burns with fire and brimstone.

Revelation 20:13-14 The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. 14 Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.

If we do not enter into eternal life in this age by having our names in the Book of Life (not erased) then are place will be in this final judgment which is the ultimate wrath of God.  All those who do not overcome, the wicked and the unbelieving both are cast into this lake of fire in the end.  They are not cast into hell as the passage makes clear.

But I want you all to see that eternal life is possible right now.  When we truly overcome and are dead to sin and alive to Christ, we inherit all things as sons and daughters of God.  We are no longer slaves to sin but sons of the kingdom.  What an awesome promise.

Revelation 21:7-8 He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. 8 But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”

The second death is the lake of fire.  Those that are truly Born Again in this age that enter into and see the kingdom in this age right now, will be part of the first resurrection and have crossed from death unto life and will not partake in the lake of fire judgment.  The second death will not harm them.

The god of this world who has blinded people to get captured by such heresy and keep many from seeing the true light of the glorious gospel.  God allows this in my understanding because He wants the living hell and lack of peace in your heart to be the catalyst to turn your heart back to Him. Then God can heal you and restore you into intimacy with Him.  Those that are living a miserable, stressed out, joyless, fruitless life are the ones perishing right now in their hearts.  They can’t see the gospel until their hearts are turned back to God.  It matters not how godly they appear of how much Scripture knowledge they have.  If they can’t see the basic gospel and the simplicity that it represents that even a child can see it, they are without understanding.

2 COR 4:3-4 But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, 4 whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.

It is time we quit warning others about a false eternal hell and begin sharing the good news and setting the example by walking it and doing what Jesus told us to do.  He never said to go warn people and yell that literal fire and brimstone would rain down from heaven.  We are to love all as Christ loved us.  That is what fulfills the whole law and proves said Jesus who are His true disciples.  Each must judge themselves on this matter.  If we are not a doer of the law but instead walk in condemnation, judgment and fear we have deceived ourselves as I will shamefully admit was me.  But yet in all of this, God works it all out for the greater good.

John 13:35 By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another

The doctrine of hell as a place of eternal torment actually exalts man and makes God a loser who is not going to have the final victory and accomplish His desires.  Oh the foolishness of men.  God’s hand is not to short to save or else the prophet Isaiah told a lie.  Paul tried to counteract the carnality of the earlier church.  He was frustrated that they were not getting the meatier topics and the spiritual manna from heaven.  They were yet carnal in their understanding of these things.  Some things have not changed in today’s church!

I have waited some time to write this post as I wanted to be certain God wanted me to write it and that I had the understanding to share this profound truth.  Fear of rejection also held me back as I know this will invoke some responses that I have been deceived or somehow led astray.  But I cannot hold it in any longer and stand against the truth revealed unto my heart.  I cannot consciously contribute to people’s continued walk in spiritual darkness and live in peace in my heart.  So we follow no man but only the Spirit of God in the man.  Search the Scriptures with an open heart and I am convinced some of the pillars of error will begin to be dismantled by the Lord.

The will come a day when all will stand before the judgment seat of Christ.  The Scriptures guarantee this.  But what this judgment is and how it will be carried out has been greatly perverted by men.  Such perversions have hidden the true gospel, the one that is good news and the one where God wins the complete and total victory from the minds of deceived hearts.  Satan has deceived the whole world.  Only a very few will be saved from these deceptions.  In the last days the Lord told us they would be so persuasive that even the very elect (the ones HE chooses out of the many called) would be deceived if God Himself did not prevent it.

God is not sitting in heaven waiting to pounce on you for every sin and send a lightning bolt down to zap you.  As we have seen, God is a righteous judge and we should strive against sin but let’s not forget what Scriptures actually teach.

2 COR 5:18-19  And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;  To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling THE WORLD unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

Jesus Christ, the Son of God came and died for you.  The Father poured out His wrath on His own Son to make final and permanent sacrifice for all sins of the entire world.  Through this act of unmerited love, all men can now be reconciled to God and be given the power to overcome the works of the devil.  I don’t know about you but that is very good news.

I see the concept of Universal Salvation as being very misleading and false.   Salvation at some level is being saved or rescued from the wrath of God.  We can be sure based on God’s mathematics that many will bear the wrath of an Almighty God on the Day of Judgment.   In this sense they are not saved.  But they will one day be purified.  Many are going to be caught in this web of judgment and will be totally surprised when the truth that is found only in Christ is exposed.

1 Thess 5:2-3 For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.  For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape.

But in the end,  God’s will is done.  God sent His son into the world not to condemn it but to save it.  In the end the propitiation of our sins will be made by Jesus to the Father and mercy will be given.  All things will be reconciled back to God to His glory.

1 John 2:2  And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for our’s only, but also for the sins of the whole world

I hope your heart will begin to bear the convictions of propagating a false gospel that greatly diminishes the Lord’s character and greatness.  He is a good God that will continue to give good gifts to His people of which He is the creator of all.  Pause and consider the Apostles words…

1 Timothy 2:1-6  I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;4 Who will have ALL MEN to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;6 Who gave himself a ransom FOR ALL, to be testified in due time.

In due time,  all knees shall bow and all tongues shall confess.  We are blessed to have the ability to do this now and our heart’s desire should agree with the Lord’s that all come to this knowledge of the truth sooner verses later.

Spiritual death or hell is the righteous judgment of God but it is not the final judgment.  Our Father in heaven is a God of love and one of great enduring mercy that we are told will endure forever.

Psalm 136:1 O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endures forever

It is the lovingkindness of God that made us and brings us into His presence and reveals His majesty to us.   Man has been deceived by the serpent and has turned God into a madman that shows no mercy and enjoys punishing His own creation in eternal torment.  Shame on us the Spirit for entertaining such blasphemy.  Our God is good and everything that God does is with goodness in mind.

The Soul That Sins Shall Die

The soul that sins shall die.  A soul that is practicing sin is a soul that is dead to eternal life and alive to sin, the very opposite of walking with Jesus.  When we practice sin, we are cast into a spiritual hell and cannot enter into eternal life.   The peace of God cannot dwell in such a heart.   The wages of sin is this spiritual death and a life of hellish torment and disappointment.    This is the righteous judgment of God.  It is what our loving Father does to bring discipline and chastisement upon us.  He loves us and wants us to be like Him and His purposes are to burn all the impurity out of us so we may enter into His glorious presence.

So if we continue in willful practice of sin, we shall spiritually die, this is the truth.   When we die spiritually we will to hell Jesus and bear a severe punishment.  We should fear this and work out our salvation with fear and trembling knowing the Lord is in control and has given us everything we need.

Hebrews 10:26-27 For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,  But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries

Far better said Jesus for us to enter into eternal life with one hand, one foot or one eye than to be cast into hell with our body complete.  The truth about the myth of an eternal literal hell does not mean one does not keep the fear of the Lord before their eyes or goes soft on sin.  But the greater error is to be captured by this doctrine of a demon and turn the nature and character of God into a lie.

The kingdom of God was near it was right there 2,000 years ago.  Don’t miss it by trying to work your own way into heaven. Don’t miss it by being puffed up in your flesh and think you are someone when you are not.  Don’t be so prideful to admit you believed in a lie.  There is freedom in the truth.  Not freedom to sin, but freedom to love like God made us to love.  This fulfills the whole law.

We are to love others as Christ has loved us.  We are to serve just like He came to serve.  He gave us the example to follow.  It is a gospel of love.  God is love. And yes the love of God is to obey His commandments which are not burdensome.

Gal 5:13-14 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. For all the law is fulfilled in one word (LOVE), even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.

The Apostle continued to warn of the very thing that defines the Christianity being played out online by many that have been set on fire for God.  Let’s wake up folks.

But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.

I think a reexamination of one’s ministry that is focused upon an eternal never ending punishment is in order.  This is not pleasing God and was never the model of discipleship in the Scriptures.  It is an invention of a carnal mind that thinks it serves God yet is partially blind to brightness of this glorious gospel.  I judge you not my friends if this you, as I have been there.  But I trust and know that in due time, this too shall be burned with the fire that is the Lord.

God has used the foolish things of this world, people and circumstances included to show me the things I have learned.  Milton Green played a big part.  My wife has played a huge role as have my sons.  Nobody has the whole loaf, each only a part.  My experiences here on this blog and the commentaries and private email have also been used to open eyes and peel off scales in God’s timing.  God used them all and the words spoken to prick my heart.  The true word of God spoken out in faith as commanded by the Lord through one of His servants will not return void.  It is HIS word that is washing me clean and will wash all of us clean.

Faith encompasses believing on what God said He would do it.  Jesus finished it and thru Him the whole world will be saved.  Will you begin to really believe this gospel?

John 12:32 If I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw ALL peoples to myself!!!!

The promises made to Abraham will come to fruition.  Through him, all the nations and all the peoples of the earth shall be blessed. May you begin to trust in the enduring mercies of our Lord.  More to come as I know many will have objections,  the same ones I did.  But the Word of God is a fire that consumes its adversaries.  The error in my gospel was burnt out of me by the finger of God.  He used the foolish things of this world to bring it about.  To HIM all the glory.  I am praying for you folks and for all the brethren.

ISAIAH 53:1  Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?
