All understanding comes from the writings of the prophets (Old Testament or Tanach: they are one and the same) in light of the Mashiach’s death for our sin, His burial and His resurrection the third day. The Law and the Prophets prophesy or foretell the Christ’s death for our sins, His burial and His resurrection the third day. Yeshua of Nazareth is the Mashiach.
Some falsely say that all men are saved. This is not true. They call it universal salvation. They who say this understand not the salvation wrought in the Mashiach. Many are called, but few are chosen. To be saved is to be saved from sin, and death and from judgment in the days of the flesh. All men are not saved from sin and death and judgment in the days of the flesh.
Some falsely say that the many will be burned in a place called “hell” forever. This is not true. They call it limited atonement. Some say that God does not love all men. Some say that Yeshua did not die for all men. They are in great error. As I have written before there is the grave or sheol. It is a place where condemnation is meeted out based on the actions of people. It is a place to wait for the end of the Lord. For the saints of God, one of the few, there is no death. For to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. “In Adam all died, in the Mashiach, all are made alive, each man in God’s own order”. All died in Adam. All are made alive in the Mashiach. There is the life of the chosen ones, partakers of the divine nature, and there is the life of the nations of the saved. There is immortality and incorruption, and there is incorruption. There is the glory of the sun, and the glory of the moon and the stars. And all things are as they should be. All things will be good! There are the saints of God who abide in the presence of God. And there is the glory of the nations and they do not enter in to the gates for they cannot find it within themselves to enter in. And every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Yeshua is Lord to the glory of God the Father.
Some say that men are brought to Christ by the fear of the imaginary place called “hell”. Was Paul converted by the fear of a place called “hell”? No! He is the pattern of conversion. God making choice and granting grace for a man to accept the one true gospel is how Paul was converted. Some say man has a free will and can choose to be a follower of the Mashiach. This is great error. Man does not have a free will. He is either a slave to sin, or a slave to righteousness. The only way to enter into the salvation of God is for God to choose to grant a person grace to accept the one true gospel, which I know I preach.
Beloved, every knee shall bow, and every tongue confess. And it will be a few clothed in immortality and corruption, and the many clothed in incorruption that shall bow their knee and confess with their mouth. All men shall bow their knees and every tongue shall confess that Yeshua is Lord to the glory of God the Father. A few shall bow their knees and confess with their mouth in the days of the flesh, and all in eternity to come. All men together shall give God our reasonable service, the fruit of lips, thanks be unto our God and Father for the Son, Yeshua ha Mashiach.
