ZOI ASKS: Actually is a request. please explain to me Matthew 25:41. You seem to be saying that Satan and his angels will all eventually be saved?
ANSWER: Sure ZOI. Matthew 25:41 is a verse the orthodox church and carnal translators have no clue what is actually being said. They take this verse to contradict scores of others Scriptures that make clear ALL MEN shall be saved in the appointed times of the Lord.
1Ti 4:10 For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of ALL men, specially of those that believe.
1Co 15:22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall ALL be made alive.
Luk 3:6 And ALL flesh shall see the salvation of God.
1Jn 2:2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the WHOLE world.
Joh 12:32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw ALL men unto me.
Rev 21:5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make ALL things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
Of course there are also very many witnesses to the salvation of all even in the Old Testament. It is the most basic principle of the true gospel, the very milk by which we can thereby begin to grow.
Gen 12:3 I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you ALL the families of the earth shall be blessed
Gen 26:4 And I will make your descendants multiply as the stars of heaven; I will give to your descendants all these lands; and in your seed ALL the nations of the earth shall be blessed
All of these words like all Scripture are spirit and their meanings are known from the sum of God’s word.
2Pe 1:20 knowing this first, that no prophecy of scripture at all is becoming its own explanation
The Lord has purposefully hid the truth and requires His Elect who He alone equips with ears to hear and eyes to see to go dig out the truth. The Elect are the kings and priests of the Lord and to whom the Scriptures are written.
Pro 25:2 It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.
Pro 1:23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.
So the problem is when we are yet carnal and influenced by the lies/false doctrines of Babylon (i.e. eating leavened bread), we will take Mattthew 25:41 all by itself and forget about all the other Scriptures that make perfectly clear all men shall be saved. Our carnal minds and deceitful hearts will invent lies and false doctrines for us to build or keep within a following of men. This is prophesied for us all to do as man will live by every word of God, even these in the appointed times.
Isa 4:1 And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread (invent and believe our own doctrines) and wear our own apparel (self righteousness in need of NO repentance) : only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach.
When this verse from Matthew 25:41 is taken to mean God burns people in eternal hell fire you have another jesus because that is not what it means at all. This verse speaks to God’s plan to save everyone and everything through fire with all but His Elect being saved in the ages to come in the lake of fire. The consuming fire that God is, is not a unmerciful madman who will burn 99% of his creation in eternal hellfire without end. The fire of God is always used for the good of the new man and the detriment of the old man within all of us. This posts speaks to some essential truths about what the fire of God represents.
All these words “left hand”, “cursed”, “everlasting” and “angels” all have deeper meanings, convey consistent macro biblical truths and are blatantly misunderstood by the orthodox churches. God’s way are indeed foolishness to the carnal mind and the world as a whole.
1Co 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
Isa 55:8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
Isa 55:9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Take for example the word AIONIOUS (G166) shown as “everlasting” from Matthew 25:41.
Mat 25:41 ThenG5119 shall he sayG2046 alsoG2532 unto themG3588 onG1537 the left hand,G2176 DepartG4198 fromG575 me,G1700 ye cursed,G2672 intoG1519 everlastingG166 fire,G4442 preparedG2090 for theG3588 devilG1228 andG2532 hisG846 angels:G32
It should say an age abiding period of time which means it has a defined beginning and a defined end according to God’s purposes. All one has to do is just look at the usage of this word and its root AION and the truth that this word does not always mean eternal is quite clear.
Satan is the father of the carnally minded
Another extremely important truth is to know who are Satan’s messengers or angels. To who is this verse really referring to. It most definitely is referring to Satan, the father of lie; yet it also mentions Satan’s angels which is all of us when we are yet carnal and not able to overcome the carnal minds and thoughts within us. We see this where Christ rebuked the then carnal, pre-conversion Peter for his unbelief and statement that Christ did not need to suffer. That is what all of our carnal minds will say when we first begin to understand the path for God’s Elect.
Mat 16:23 But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.
All of us when we are carnally minded are spiritually dead, the very way we are born and will stay until the Lord comes to us the second time for salvation apart from sin.
Rom 8:6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
Rom 8:7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
The same principle applies to the word translated as angel in Matthew 25:41. That word is used interchangeably with the word MESSENGER which is a much better translation for the reader to understand the truth in this verse. Please do yourself a favor and go research the use of the word angel and messenger in both the OT and NT and hopefully you will dig out the truth the Lord has hidden from carnal eyes.
All men (you, me, everyone) are first carnally minded and are of our father the devil despite our outward displays of religion and righteousness. At this time we cannot hear the words of Christ even though we think we are spiritual. This is all of us until the day the Lord comes a second time without sin for salvation in our inward heavens. Then we shall hear Him and will be transformed into a son of God. But until that day, we are just a religious beast thinking we know the Lord and serve Him but have no clue. Jesus spoke these words to all of us and in our appointed times we will hear them and understand them. Before then we will not understand because we cannot hear His words that are spirit.
Joh 8:43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.
Joh 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil (THE DEVILS MESSENGERS, THE DEVILS ANGELS), and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
When one cannot hear His speech, their day of judgment is yet future as one is not judged unless and until they can hear the words of God spiritually. Only the Lord can do that… NO FREE WILL INVOLVED, it is all the Lord’s doing.
Pro 20:12 The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, the LORD hath made even both of them.
Psa 10:17 LORD, thou hast heard the desire of the humble: thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear:
It is the Lord’s plan to only give His Elect ears to hear and eyes to see and to blind everyone else. It has never changed.
Rom 11:7 What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded (every body else but the few chosen)
Rom 11:8 (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.
The whole world does not understand, they cannot understand as it simply has not been given to them to understand. Those that believe and teach we by our own initiative can teach ourselves the mysteries of the kingdom are nothing more than messengers of Satan spewing lies in the name of the Lord. All of orthodox Christianity is in this camp. They see physically and perceive not spiritually and hear physically but hear not spiritually. The blind leading the blind.
Mat 13:9 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
Mat 13:10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?
Mat 13:11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them (THE CARNALLY MINDED) it is not given.
Mat 13:12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.
Mat 13:13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
The carnally minded cannot hear the words of the Lord. They cannot understand the Scriptures and while they claim to see and claim to hear, they do not understand His speech and one day will be thrown into the lake of fire when their day of salvation comes.
So when you realize angels and messengers are the same word and that is what Mat 25:41 is referring to (Go search the word messenger and angel), then you will see that the words of Matthew 25:41 are merely Christ telling us what we see elsewhere in the Scriptures. Namely that those not in the blessed and first resurrection will all go into the lake of fire to be saved.
Judgment is the way salvation comes
The lies of Babylon, aka orthodox Christianity, have one believing the salvation means getting a pass and not having to go thru the judgment of God against our sins. Not true, in fact the very opposite is the truth.
Exo 6:6 Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I am the LORD, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you out of their bondage, and I will redeem you with a stretched out arm, and with great judgments:
Isa 26:9 With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.
No man enters into Christ, who is the temple any other way despite what you have been taught.
Rev 15:8 And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.
And of course, judgment begins with His Elect, God’s own chosen few, in this age. The rest will not be judged until their resurrection and then they will go into the lake of fire to be judged.
1Pe 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
The Lake of Fire: The greatest act of grace ever
If one can be given to understand what grace really is and see that it is the trials, it is the chastening of the Lord that comes to every son the Lord receives, then a lot of scales will come off their eyes and they will begin to see.
Heb 12:6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.
The fact is the Lord is not now saving many, only the few chosen. That is what the plan for the lake of fire is, it is the way the Lord will save all mankind and destroy the spirit of Satan that is within every man.
1Co 3:15 If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
Rev 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, [the fire that saves and purifies us] where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
God’s Elect will be the judges and will judge these “angels”
1Co 6:2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
1Co 6:3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? (Satan’s messengers) how much more things that pertain to this life?
Mat 19:28 And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel (i.e. All men in the lake of fire)
FIRE from the mouth of God’s Elect is the lake of fire. That is what destroys the wood and consumes the adversaries of God.
Jer 5:14 Wherefore thus saith the LORD God of hosts, Because ye speak this word, behold, I will make my words in thy mouth fire, and this people wood, and it shall devour them.
Christ is the savior of the world. But who is Christ? Christ is HIS BODY. As His Father sent Him, so sends Christ His Christ.
Joh 20:21 Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.
Saviours will come upon Mt. Zion and will save Esau (those yet carnal) in the lake of fire.
Oba 1:21 And saviours (the body of Christ) shall come up on mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau; and the kingdom shall be the LORD’S.
This all is a wonderful picture of hope for the future. But when one has the log of eternal torment and free will in their eyes, they have zero chance to see it unless the Lord mercifully pulls those logs from their eyes. I hope you can see this but Matthew 25:41 has nothing to do with eternal hell fire, and everything to do with the process and plans for how God will save ALL MANKIND
1Ti 4:9 This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation.
1Ti 4:10 For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.
1Ti 4:11 These things command and teach.
Salvation of All
The salvation of all is sure, it only awaits the Lord’s timing
1Co 15:22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
Luk 3:6 And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.
The salvation of all is even the will of God Almighty.
2Pe 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.
And we know the Lord gets His will done. He depends not on the will of any man.
Job 23:13 But he is in one mind, and who can turn him? and what his soul desireth, even that he doeth.
Eph 1:11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:
And ultimately even hell (hades) and death will be cast into this lake of fire and all men, creatures shall be saved. NO EXCEPTIONS, that is HIS WILL
Rev 20:13 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.
Rev 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
And here is a vision of that glorious event. This is the event that will save everyone but God’s Elect.
Rev 5:13 And every creature (even Satan and all spirits) which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.
Satan Serves the Lord and His Purposes Perfectly
Every creature includes Satan. Contrary to another lie of the orthodox church, Satan did not rebel against God, He was made a crooked serpent on purpose and only served the Lord’s plan to be the adversary.
Job 26:13 By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens; his hand hath formed the crooked serpent.
Joh 8:44 Ye are of yourfather the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, (he was not in charge of music in a physical heaven then rebelled against the Lord) and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

Coming to see the salvation of all is the sincere MILK of the word one must get right to have any chance to grow in the true faith and come out of the lies of Babylon.
1Pe 2:2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk (eonian judgment of Hebrews 6, i.e. the salvation of all men) of the word, that ye may grow thereby:
We all have to first be shown that all we knew was a lie and that we were blind as bats all the while claiming we see before our salvation will come. We have to wait until our day of judgment and when we will be given ears to hear the words that will judge us in the last day.
YOUR BROTHER IN CHRIST, PETE
