Only when Christ has subdued all things unto Himself, will the successions of time pass away, and God be “All” in all beings and things, every shadow of evil being swept out of the universe, that the everlasting blessedness of the eternal world may be without spot or stain.

Samuel Cox (1826-1893)
Salvator Mundi, chapter 5

SalvatorMundiSalvator Mundi: Is Christ the Savior of All Men?

by Samuel Cox (1826-1893)
(New Enlarged Type Edition)

“Salvator Mundi” means “Savior of the World.” First published in 1877, the main object of this book is to encourage those who “faintly trust the larger hope” to commit themselves to it wholly and fearlessly, by showing them that they have ample warrant for it in the Scriptures. Reprint of the 1899 Eleventh Edition.

But One Soul

If but one soul were to remain in the power of the devil, death or hell, to all endless eternity, then the devil, death and hell would have something to boast of against God. Thus death would not be entirely swallowed up in victory, but always keep something of his sting, and hell would ever more be able to make a scorn of those who would say, “O hell, where is your victory?”

Which Account Is True?

Christianity’s account?

The number of people who are condemned in Adam to date:

Approximately 109 billion.

The number of people who are redeemed in Christ to date:

Approximately 5 billion (taking liberty).

The number of people being tortured forever and ever by a loving “God” to date:

Approximately 104 billion.

Success rate of “the Savior of the world”:

Approximately 4.59%.

Or, the Scripture’s account?

For even as, in Adam, all are dying, thus also, in Christ, shall all be vivified. Yet each in his own class: the Firstfruit, Christ; thereupon those who are Christ’s in His presence; thereafter the consummation, whenever He may be giving up the kingdom to His God and Father, whenever He should be nullifying all sovereignty and all authority and power. For He must be reigning until He should be placing all His enemies under His feet. The last enemy is being abolished: death. For He subjects all under His feet. Now whenever He may be saying that all is subject, it is evident that it is outside of Him Who subjects all to Him. Now, whenever all may be subjected to Him, then the Son Himself also shall be subjected to Him Who subjects all to Him, that God may be All in all (I Corinthians 15:22-28).

Christ Undid What Adam Did

Did you know that what Adam did, Christ undid?

Christ’s work on Calvary is greater than Adam’s sin. All of God’s creation will be gloriously saved by the successful work of “the Savior of the world” (John 4:42).

Salvation is not dependent on us at all. Salvation is ALL about Christ and His work alone. Paul taught that the exact same all men who are condemned in Adam are the exact same “all men” who are justified in Christ (Romans 5:18); and that the exact same “all” who die in Adam are the exact same “all” who are “made alive” in Christ (I Corinthians 15:22). What a victorious Savior we have!

Christ is greater than Adam!

The Story of Grace Stronger than Sin

February 14, 2016

ListenListen to Today’s Audio Goodie
(Have the Goodie read to you!)

The notion of the popular creed (i.e., that God details in the Bible the story of His own defeat; how sin has proved too strong for Him), seems wholly unfounded. Assuredly the Bible is not the story of sin, deepening into eternal ruin, of God’s Son worsted in His utmost effort. It is from the opening to the close the story of grace stronger than sin – of life victorious over every form of death – of God triumphant over evil.

Groundhog Day

The world’s most famous groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, at Gobbler’s Knob has been a tradition since 1886. Punxsutawney is a little over an hour north from here. Folk legend Phil’s “predictions” might be about as good as the educated weather forecasters. I’m sure that many of our readers are looking forward to spring. After all, winter is setting us up for the welcomed contrast of spring.

Behold, the winter is past … the flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come (Song of Solomon 2:11-12).

Anne Bradstreet put it this way:

If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant.

In all of the contrasts of spring, Father has provided us with some wonderful lessons – not the least of which is the precious picture of resurrection. After the dead of winter comes the budding life of spring. Though one day we may lie down in the cold winter of death, we shall also spring forth in the very life of our Lord – all in due season.
