Judgment, mortality, the death of Jesus upon the cross, and the second death are in the mix of topics, today.  By transgression of divine law (sin), and operating according to self-will, Adam and Eve entered mankind into a continuing condition for existence and life upon the earth that requires  death, decay, and annihilation (complete destruction; total removal from divine Creation).  Resurrection may reverse death, however, only Christ dying upon the cross may save the living from annihilation spoken of as the second death.  Atonement and reconciliation require the blood of the cross.  A fighter at “Yahoo!

Fellow Christians,why do some of u condemn all non christians to hell? Are you God to decide who will be spared and who will not?

I see many comments on here by some Christians who resort themselves to condemning other people who are not Christians to hell. Like seriously? Why do some of u decide for others? When not even God has began His judgement of mankind. Yes,as a Christian I know that the punishment for those who reject Christ will be severe,but hey,that’s for Elohim to decide. He can even decide to raise more hindus to heaven than christians if it is His will. He can decide to spare all muslims and to condemn all christians. How do we know? Exactly,we don’t so can some of us stop condemning people to Hell already? This is quite a serious matter

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.  He that believeth on him is not condemned:  but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.  And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.  For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.  But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.  (John 3:  16-21, KJV)

 

THE DOUBLE DAGGER:  Believing In The Cross? (03/04/2016); Focus Upon The Cross? (03/01/2016); Focus Upon The Cross? (02/29/2016); The Cross Must Occur? (02/23/2016)

 

“Rose”, trust that, despite time and space, through operations of the Holy Spirit, blood and truth from the cross are flowing to here and now.  Higher truth is involved than simply that of men being harshly critical of one another.  Consider the following points:

(1.)  The death of Jesus Christ upon the cross, his resurrection, and ascension have been supplied as something only the fullness of GOD can accomplish.  The need it addresses can not be fulfilled using only such finite human tools as intelligence, logic, philosophy, science, or technology.  When the first pair (Adam) violated trust in Eden, all Creation became subject to mortality with aging and corruption (decay, rotting) as mechanical and temporal aspects of life process.  More than this, the living became subject to evaluation and examination (we say, final judgment) to assign value, and determine their fitness for continuing as eternal companions of divinity.

(2.)  Many Christian believers mistakenly seek a place within the church as a community of believers on the basis of things that are carnal, material, and social in their character, nature, substance and process.  These fail to understand that a relationship with divinity is intended to provide relief from specific conditions attending the operations of sin along with special resources that otherwise are not available to created beings and living creatures.

(3.)  Wrath against sin is a permanent aspect within the makeup of Deity, inseparable from other features (e.g., faith, holiness, longsuffering, love, righteousness, wisdom—where one appears, they all are present in varying proportion). 

(4.)  Sin opposes the continued existence of divine law (the expressed will of GOD), the divine Law Giver, and all divine order generated by law.  Sin is no concrete thing you may hold in your hand, or carry  in your pocket; has not been created by divinity; and lacks form and physical dimensions.  Yet, sin has direction, effect, and “presence”; and sin may dominate awareness and self-will in the living.

(5.)  Eliminating and removing sin from Creation requires multiple layers of divine process.  Included are anointing, atonement, covenant, forbearance, forgiveness, Incarnation, inheritance, praise, prayer, rebirth, redemption, remission, repentance, and sanctification.

(6.)  Death of a sinner forces them to sin no more; however, the consequences of their sin continues indefinitely, and long after they are gone.  Death of the physical body (we say, destruction of the vessel) is not sufficient to destroy sin.  A divine tool associated with the Lake of Fire, the second death, must come into sacred use.  It is this death we are saved from by the ministry of Jesus dying upon the cross as the One Sent, the Christ, the Messiah, the Redeemer, the Savior, and the Son of GOD.

There is far more to be said, understood, and spiritually apprehended.  (For example, (7.) Christian believers are to be guided and endowed with “sacred knowledge” recorded as holy writings, spirit substance from the makeup of Deity, and a broad range of specific points of truth (we say, doctrine) that explain and show the justification for the continuing operations of GOD to fulfill eternal purpose.  When sharing the “good news” it is also a believer’s duty to share admonition and serious warnings.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
