Christ in Us is the Hope of Glory
“And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him. In this way, love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment, because in this world we are like him. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because he first loved us.” (1 John 4:16-19)
The law of the Spirit of life has set people free from the law of sin and death. (Romans 8:2) Indeed, what Jesus did at the cross is greater than what Adam did in the garden. (Romans 5:17) “…even so through one Man’s righteous act the free gift came to ALL men, resulting in justification of life” (Romans 5:18) This glorifies and magnifies the perfection of Jesus’ finished work and honours the perfect love of God, which casts out fear.
I asked a question in Yahoo Answers, wanting to share that God is love, and love does not delight in so-called eternal torture of His creations. I received the following answer, which I chose as the best answer.
“All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is self-evident.” – Schopenhauer
In order to maintain the false doctrine of “hell” as preached to millions of people worldwide, one must disregard just about every principle of even basic Bible interpretation. For your own good, realize that there is NOTHING Spiritual in it. It is a doctrine of the flesh.
I’ve often found people responding as follows, in defence of the doctrine of “hell”:
“If there is no hell, what is the point of being a Christian?”
This statement reveals the sad truth that so many are involved in the Christian religion for one reason only, all pretenses to the contrary notwithstanding: A fear of “hell”.
The LAW of sin and death was absolutely successful to KILL ALL people that ever lived. Christ redeemed us by a LAW of the NEW that is far superior the the OLD law of sin and death, namely the LAW of the SPIRIT of the LIFE in Christ Jesus.
You see, we have to do with Divine LAW’s here. God Himself is bound by the Spiritual LAWS He designed. Now it is easy to understand. God had NO choice under the new LAW but to save ALL PEOPLE from sin AND death, simply because it is a LAW of LIFE where NO permanent destruction can remain.
That means that NO person will permanently die. Some will die physically because they failed to be changed by the renewing of their minds when they still had the opportunity to do so. Other will stay ALIVE and REMAIN.
Under the OLD law of sin and death, the people that died before the Cross were also made alive under the new law of LIFE. All of them. Under the new law all people were made alive, those who have already died and those who will not die.
It is important to understand what this LIFE is that were given to all people under the new law . It is also not too difficult to understand if we take the Scripture as our foundation. Here it is :
John 14:6 NKJV
(6) Jesus said to him, I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life; no one comes to the Father but by Me.
The LIFE that ALL of us received as a compulsory effect of the law of the Spirit of the Life in Christ is THE LIFE IN CHRIST IS CHRIST HIMSELF. That is real GRACE brother .
I noticed that some people tried to dodge the Truth by saying: “Yes we are freed from the law of sin and death ,and received the Life which is eternal, BUT some people will spend that eternal Life they received under the new law in “hell”.
This is only possible if Christ could also go with them to a place people call “hell”.
You see John 14:6 show us that this LIFE IS CHRIST.
Just as absurd as it is to think that Christ can go to “hell”, so absurd is it for even one person to go to “hell” while they have CHRIST because of a law that included ALL people.
If someone believe that ALL people is not included, then the OLD law of sin and death was far more superior than the new law of the Spirit of the Life in Christ.
Then the Word LIED to us and that is not possible .
2 Corinthians 3:9 NKJV
(9) For if the ministry of condemnation is glorious, much more does the ministry of righteousness exceed in glory.
Some say, ” The bible talks clearly about those that are lost “.
Lost for how long? Till they are convinced, overwhelmed by the Grace and Life and Love and Compassion of God according to the new law.
“Eternally” lost ? The Greek words used refer to an “age”, not the concept of “for ever and ever” as we understand it. You can look it up in the Greek dictionary.
LOVE believes the best of ALL & LOVE NEVER fails.
