The Whole Universe in Harmony with God

August 16, 2018

Many plain direct statements in the Sacred Scriptures declare that the purpose of God through our Lord Jesus Christ is to bless all humanity and to bring the whole universe into harmony with Himself.

How can this be if myriads of mankind whom He so loves were to be kept alive forever in hopeless misery? And what kind of a god could love the sinner with Calvary love until he died, and then leave him in indescribable suffering eternally?

We Do Not Initiate God’s Love

August 14, 2018

We love him, because he first loved us (I John 4:19).

The truth about God and His word helps us in our daily walk, our attitude and assurance about many things, and it allows us to relax in the presence of difficulties. Even so, our knowledge of truth does not initiate God’s love nor does it launch His plan of redemption. Our justification and salvation is secured in full by the finished work of Jesus Christ.

My salvation comes from the Lord alone (Jonah 2:9 NIV).

Revealing the Full Extent of Christ’s Work

Sinners do not go away into “everlasting punishment.” They go into “eonian correction.” Thank God for the Concordant Literal Translation, which some in their blindness are condemning. When leaders in the church today condemn something I would be the first one to rush out and get it and examine it for myself. Do not make the mistake of thinking that the majority has the truth. It has never been that way, and it is not now.

The unscriptural tradition assigning a limit beyond which Christ has no power to save the obstinate sinner has spread universally. It is worldwide. It claims that the will of man can successfully oppose the power and will of God. “God wills all mankind to be saved” (I Timothy 2:4).

Let us follow our Lord in His denunciation of tradition that makes void the Word of God. Let us revel in the full extent of Christ’s work and God’s victory for all mankind.

God’s Rules for Scriptural Interpretation:

Man’s Place in God’s Purpose
by Charles J. Peart (1896-1989)

The purpose of this work is twofold: to endeavor to get believers to see where we belong in the purpose of God today, and to expose unsound unscriptural teachings, which are keeping believers from learning where we belong in the purpose of God now.

Peart was an active associate of A.E. Knoch. In addition to being a conference speaker, he conducted resident ministry in Los Angeles, Berkeley, Oakland, San Francisco, Novato, Sacramento and Auburn, CA. He also spearheaded the placement of a Concordant Version in every public library in CA.

We Are Aware

(Have the Goodie read to you!)

For us, who love God, who are the called according to His purpose, there is an awareness that He is working all together for good (Romans 8:28, BSV).

God is working ALL together for good! Not for some, but everyone. When Paul states “who love God,” he is not saying that God is working all together for good in the lives of only those who love God. He is stating that those who love God are aware of this truth.

Our love for God brings “awareness,” it is NOT the trigger that causes God suddenly to begin to work all together for our good.

The Heart of God’s Intention

(Have the Goodie read to you!)

I do not wish to over-emphasize the importance of this truth, but I am constrained to say that these truths are of immense importance because they are foundational. Upon their firm footing rests the whole superstructure of God’s plan of the ages. If we cannot see how in the very beginning God created man for the specific purpose of ruling the universe, and to have dominion over all of the vast sidereal with its infinite space and multi-billion galaxies, then we have missed the heart of God’s intention completely and we become doomed to spend our lives in the idle pettifogging of the Romish and Protestant systems, which give neither reason for man’s existence nor cause for his humiliation and fiery testings. Even redemption, full and complete as it is and in spite of its infinite cost, will fail to reconcile and save more than one percent of all creation, if the fruitless interpretations of the Babylonish system are to be believed.

Destruction Is a Passing Process

July 20, 2018

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

The terms translated “forever” and “everlasting” are human perversions which could never have deceived us if they had been consistently rendered. They denote definite divisions of time called “ages” or “eons.” All together they form a distinct portion of time called “eonian times.”

Destruction, like salvation, is “eonian.” It is not the end or aim of God. God destroys nothing that He will not restore. He loses nothing that will not return to Him laden with praise and glory for Himself. Destruction is a passing process, not a finished goal. Through God it will work out the welfare of all of His creatures and the glory of our Savior.

Christ Jesus Came into the World to Save Sinners

March 8, 2018

(Have the Goodie read to you!)

If I receive forgiveness, and peace, and a new mind, and the glory to come, wholly as a free gift of God, how can I possibly doubt that God will do the same thing for all fellow sinners that He is doing for me?

I have found that there lurks in many Christians, who refuse to entertain this larger hope, some self-righteousness, some such conceit as that after all they are finally saved by some merit of theirs, which the others do not possess, and on account of which God does not and cannot save those others.

I once asked one of whom I thought a great deal, but who protested indignantly against my faith in this hope, “Brother, do you expect to be saved?” He answered: “I surely do.” “Well, if God saves you, why should He not save all of your brother humans? Are they harder to save than you? Are they so hard to save that God is not able to do it? Or does He not love them as much as He does you? Tell me, why should He make such a frightful difference between you and the others who are no greater sinners than you are?”

After some hesitancy, he said what nearly all who hold this same attitude would have said, namely, that the others are not saved because they refuse to be saved. But I showed him that he also refused to be saved up to a certain time, that all refuse to be saved until the right hour has come, and that the willingness to be saved, according to the teaching of the Gospel, also comes from God’s grace.

It became plain that in this man’s thinking there still lurked a piece of that Phariseeism which thanks God that one is not as bad as the other sinners, and that one still has some merits by which one’s salvation is made possible for God, while He must utterly abandon those others, who do not possess this merit, to endless torment.
