ABRAHAM'S PROMISE INCLUDES
''ALL SHALL SEE HIM''
“And the glory of the Lord will be revealed,
and all mankind will see it together;
the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”
There will be no questions as to truth, for unlike
'salvation by grace through faith' now, at that future time it will be
'seeing is believing'. Many do not want to believe this truth and
devise theologies of salvation to exclude many from this great and
wonderful Good News of ALL MEN SEEING GOD. And they will argue many points
from poorly translated verses and twisted doctrines to send more people
to Hell than to redeem them to God. But, what does the Bible say the
answer is to those who die not knowing Christ? What if some do not
believe? Traditional Orthodoxy decrees that they all get "eternal Hell
fire". But, ''shall their unbelief make the faith of God to no
effect?''" (Rom. 3: 3) Obviously, the conventional answer is a yes.
Most churchmen either avoid answering this question properly or they
retort with some confused distorted rhetoric that suggests 'no effect'.
But, shall this unbelief and wickedness annul the promise which God
made to Abraham? (Gen. 17: 7) The answer is NO it will not. For, "''God
forbid: yea, let God be true [about this truth] and every man a liar
[who speaks contrarily]''." (Rom.3: 6) God will not always be wrathful
and angry forever. He will not let His anger continue, nor His casting
off extend for all eternity. (Ps. 103: 9; Lam. 3: 31-33; Ps. 30: 5;
Isa. 54: 8; Isa. 57: 16). The reason is “God has concluded all
mankind in unbelief, - that all mankind may be guilty before God -
because all mankind have sinned after Adam ['like Father, like Son']
and fall short of the glory of God.'' He does this, ''so that He
might have mercy upon all.''" (Rom. 11: 32-33; 3: 19; 3: 23). We now
see all tears wiped away, no more sorrow, nor crying, nor pain. (Rev.
21: 4). DEATH and HELL are even destroyed! (1 Cor. 25: 26).
''Behold! What does all this? but, 'the Lamb of God, which taketh away
[ALL] the sin of the world!' What is that Good News that the dead shall
'see and believe' as God saves ALL FLESH? It is the Lamb of God.
exhort first of all that supplication, prayers and intercession, be
made FOR ALL MEN... [that] this is GOOD AND ACCEPTABLE in the sight of
God our Savior; WHO WILL HAVE ALL MEN TO BE SAVED, and to [eventually]
come unto the knowledge of the truth... [and this truth is] Christ
Jesus; [who] ... gave himself a RANSOM FOR ALL, to be testified IN DUE
TIME [to everyone, that He did it for ALL MANKIND].'' -- (I Ti. 2:1-6)
All of these substitute pronouns, symbols and terms
you see in these verses seem to point to this truth, that God ‘wills’
[predestined] ALL men to be saved in the end, each in their due order
in His time-line. These verses show that no one will be left out, or be
left behind and permanently exiled. The many misinformed preachers of
today will say they are, ‘eternally damned’. But, the Holy Scriptures,
from Genesis to Revelation, teach that God has a different plan
[contrary to mans reasoning] from ‘before the creation’ of the cosmos
and even before man himself, to have a perfect final state filled with
ALL His beloved children. This may not make much rational sense to the
majority of theological bigots, but it surly makes all the sense to our
Now a big
question arises as to the destiny of the departed, especially those who
do not know Christ - babies, the heathen, savages and idiots; or those
who have, for various unjust reasons, denied Him. What happens to them?
Is this fleshy life that one and only time a man has to repent, confess
and believe? Does God directly mention that man is eternally cut off at
physical death from having any ears to hear the evangel? Let us
see in the following sections just what Scripture has to say. Maybe we
can get a better idea of the love, grace and mercy God has, not to
mention a little more just treatment of His beloved created beings.
Surly we will see that ALL shall see Him and be saved. For, Isaiah 40:5
says, “And the glory of the Lord will be revealed, and all mankind will
see it together; the mouth of the Lord has spoken.” This verse
indicates that all people (with no exceptions) will see the glory of
the Lord. There will be no individual isolated from God at that moment,
no one locked away in torment forever. This prophecy was quoted and
applied to the Lord Jesus in Luke 3:6 showing that all the Apostles
believed and taught that,
''all mankind will see the salvation of the Lord.''
