GOD’S WILL FOR ALL

10 May

Rom. 6:16, 22, 23.  “Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves into submission, his slaves you are to whom you submit; whether of sin unto death, or of submission unto righteousness?  But now having been set free from sin and become slaves to God, you have your fruit unto holiness, and the end (goal) Life eternal. For the wages of sin is death. But the unearned favor of God is Life eternal in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

 

“Your will be done, Father, on earth as it is in heaven. Amen.” “God will have all men to be saved and to come unto the knowledge of the Truth.” Listen to the Word of God if you want to know what God’s will is. The will of God has not changed since Adam’s fall – He wants Paradise restored, the new heaven and new earth wherein dwells righteousness! He wants all men to live with Him into the eternities of the eternities! And He gave His Son, Jesus Christ, into death – the Lamb of God Who took away the sins of the world. The forgiveness of sins for all, and heaven opened for all, God determined already from before the foundations of earth were laid. FOR ALL, we say, since the eternal Son of God IS the Payment-in-full for our sins, and not for ours only, but also for the whole world!

Those of us who glory in the Goodnews (Gospel) of God’s will can sense by the Holy Ghost that this earth – yes, all creation – veritably throbs with our Father’s loving will for all men. The Old Testament prophets, preaching by the Holy Ghost, point to the Christ to come in Whom there is glorious salvation – and thru Him alone. Make no mistake, all prophesy of the Old Testament displays the will of God in His Lamb Who would defeat the devil and his influence, bringing “Peace on earth, Good Will toward men.” No. Not peace as men think of the word. But peace between sinful humans and God. Sin of the world taken

away by the Lamb. Your will IS done in heaven, Father. May it be so on earth!

 

ALL MEN DECLARBD RIGHTEOUS

God will have all men know that He declared the whole world righteous in the death and resurrection of His Son. The saving of all men is finished and completely perfect. Believing Him is what God calls faith; and he who believes and is baptized will be saved, he who is unbelieving will be damned. Unbelief is the reason for being damned eternally because he who believes not God has made Him a liar – because he believes not the record that God gave of His Son.

Believing God’s Goodnews of eternal Life thru Christ’s offering Himself, and believing that ALL men are declared righteous by God thru Christ is the source of our happiness – rejoicing in God’s will. “Goodnews of great joy which will be to all people.” Rom. 4: “To him who works not, but believes on Him Who declares the godless righteous, his faith is credited into righteousness. Even as David also describes the happiness of the man unto whom God credits righteousness without works: Happy are they whose lawlessnesses are forgiven and whose sins are covered. Happy a man to whom the Lord will no way charge sin.” Ch. 5: “While we were yet sinners Christ died for us. Much more, then, having been declared righteous in His blood, we shall be saved thru Him from the wrath.” V. 18 “Consequently, therefore, as thru one’s (Adam’s) fall, unto all men into damnation; so also thru one’s (Christ’s) perfect righteousness, unto all men into righteousness of Life.”

We accept His Word Who “declares the godless righteous. Our believing is not of ourselves, however. It is the gift of God, not forth from works, lest any man should boast! By the work of the Holy Ghost Who has begotten us anew, we cry in faith, “Father, Father” being heirs of heaven as true sons.
