For of Him, and through Him, and to Him, are all things: to Whom be glory for ever. Amen (Romans 11:36).

In the issues of God’s dispensations there can be no permanent ill. He is absolutely good. Of Him are all things, through Him are all things, and to Him are all things (Romans 11:36).

When the goal is attained, all will be well. When our visions are unsealed by the life immortal, we shall perceive that what our finite sense termed ill in this life was but a necessary part of the great and wonderful plan of human redemption.

The Keys of Death and Hell

Keys lock and unlock things. That’s their purpose.

In Revelation 1:17-18 Christ says,

Fear not; I am the First and the Last: I am He Who lives, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

Think of it: God sent His Son “to be the Savior of the world” (I John 4:14); and now Christ has possession of the keys of death and hell. What do you think the “Savior of the world” (John 4:42), the One Who came to set captives free (Luke 4:18), is going to do with “the keys of hell and of death”? Lock, or unlock them?

Are you afraid of death or hell? Well, you needn’t be. Now that Christ has the keys to both of them, it’s of little wonder that He prefaced His powerful declaration with, “Fear not!”

Shall He Not Do What He Asks Us to Do?

Shall He say, “Forgive seventy times seven,” and Himself not forgive except in this short life? Shall He command us to “overcome evil with good,” and Himself, the Almighty, be overcome of evil? Shall He judge those who leave the captives unvisited, and Himself leave captives in a worse prison for ever unvisited?

Does He not again and again appeal to our own natural feelings of mercy, as witnessing “how much more” we may expect a larger mercy from our “Father which is in Heaven”?

Whatsoever the Lord pleased, that did He in heaven, and in earth, in the seas, and all deep places (Psalm 135:6).

God rules all! Though He is concealed by a veil of second causes from common eyes, so that they can perceive only the means, instruments and contingencies by which He works, and therefore think He does nothing; yet, in reality, He does all, according to His Own counsel and pleasure, in the armies of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth (Daniel 4:35).

What Is Punishment?

“Punishment” is a word I have come to hate, for men have so fearfully misused it of God’s operations. Once we see that all of God’s dealings are with a view to the eventual reconciliation of all, the idea of punitive retribution, introduced by corrupt theology, will become abhorrent. We must remember that the object of all of God’s operations are rooted in love and fruited in reconciliation. If God is love, He cannot be orthodox. Before there can be a universal reconciliation, each one must be set right with God, and this is accomplished at the judging. Such indeed is the true meaning of judgment.

For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that He might have mercy upon all (Romans 11:32).

God is in all this – every bit of it – the evil as well as the good. He shuts us up in unbelief, that He may have mercy on us, so when folks walk Satan’s way, they are being taken that way by a God who has designs of mercy on them.
