When you read the Bible, "Precept must be upon precept, line upon line, here a little,
there a little."(Isaiah 28:10) Most sermons are preached that way.
I have researched the subject of all saved for over 10 years. In my studies, I have discovered that Elohim (Creator) is not all vengeful. He wants His
children to be with Him in Heaven, and not to watch most of them burn in the Lake of Fire for ever. By His inspired words, He is loving, careing, and
The following documents give the highlights of important information on that issue.
Later you can read over 80 scriptures that prove ALL Will Be Saved, they are plain,
stand on their own, and no need to interpret them.
Universal salvation in its simple and proper sense existed in most churches of the
founding fathers. It was very common and virtually unchallenged among early
Christians until the time known as the Dark Ages that started in the 5th century. From A.D.170 to 430 A.D, there were 6 main Christian schools of
thought. Four taught the salvation of all mankind. One taught total annihilation of sinners at the end. One taught eternal torment in a burning Lake of
Protestant churches followed the latter, and that is where the main body of believers are today. (Schaff-Herzog Bible encyclopedia). Mainstream
Protestant churches are still preaching some of the non Biblical doctrines of that era, and are passively accepted by parishioners.
In the 1st century, Yahshua Messiah (Jesus) established His church. From the fourth century to this day, the Gospel, (Good news) became the bad
news. The churches teach an underlying doctrine, about the vast majority of people born from Adam and Eve until the present, that are doomed.
They believe the multiple billions of people that have never heard of Yahshua Messiah. Nor have they accepted, or believed Him in this life. They will
be cast into a Lake of Fire, to be tormented forever. This by our Heavenly Father, whose love never fails. (Romans 8:39)
This my friends is a contradiction which defies rational thinking, and the scriptures.
The Bible confirms that Yahshua Messiah Desires all mankind to be saved, and come to the knowledge of the truth, and is the Savior of ALL
mankind, especially those that believe. (1 Timothy 2:3,4) (4:10,11)
Elohim is of one mind, who can change Him? What ever His Soul desires, He does.
(Job 23:13) Here is a subject that theologians have no satisfactory answer for. An opinion survey was taken of a number of preachers. They were
asked why Yahweh would allow the major population of the entire world, to suffer a horrible existence in the Lake of Fire forever ? They replied,
Because He is Holy. This also defies rational thinking.
Theologians are correct when they say, you must accept Yahshua to be saved.
Scriptures agree, but not only in this life. This is a formality, because He Saved All
when He suffered and died on the cross at Calvary. While we were enemies, we were reconciled to Yahweh by Messiahs death. And much more, We
Are Saved by His resurrected life (Romans 5:10)
Christians have been indoctrinated, and brain washed with the Lake of Fire doctrine
all of their lives. The belief is: an earlier faction of the church taught this to keep
parishioners under control with fear and death. In earlier years, they were not allowed to read the Bible. Protestants, since the reformation, have
used negative sounding scriptures as assumptions.
There is embellishment and spin, in interpreting the scriptures, even in this day and
age. Most Christians are taught and believe that parable stories are real . This could
not be more further from the truth. Strongs Bible Concordance states. A parable is a fictitious narration conveying a moral. A proverb has the same
meaning, as an
Many theologians interpret, that every negative sounding scripture means Lake of Fire. Their church should be called the Church of Assumption.
The scriptures they give about damnation aren't what they seem to be.
An example is the parable of entering the wide gate to destruction. (Die, perish) and the narrow gate to life. (Mt.7:13,14) No Lake of Fire here, only
an assumption. The wide gate, is a life of self destructive sins. Crime, drugs, immoral sex and unhealthy life style, can shorten a persons life very
Matthew (25:31-46) Is a parable about separating the sheep, which are righteous,from the goats, representing sinners. The story was, that the
sinners, didn't feed, give water, shelter, clothe, visit the sick, and the prisoners. Yahshua Messiah said depart, you cursed into everlasting fire. As for
the moral of this fictitious story. People were lovers of money. (Luke 16:13 They were not about to spend their time and money on strangers.
The sin committed by the people in this fictitious story, was knowing to do good and not doing it. (James 4:17) Their sins were not about breaking the
10 Commandments. Not murder, adultery, stealing, coveting their neighbors wife, worshiping other gods ect. The Messiah is not going to cast
anyone into the Lake of Fire for not giving some one a drink of water.
He was castigating people for their total lack of charity. Another fact, is that the Bible refers to mankind as sheep in 39 places, never as goats,
whether good or bad. There is the true story of Yahshua casting demons into the herd of swine.(Mark 5:12,13)The analogy to that story is, that the
beings representing the goats, were demons in the narration, and they will be cast into everlasting fire.
Lazarus and the rich man's parable shows more stingy people. The people that Yahshua was preaching to, could relate to His story. They probably
held on to their sheckles very tight, when they saw a beggar. Its another story of greed. The rich man was symbolically cast into the Lake of Fire for
not giving to the poor.
Have you ever passed by a beggar, & ignored help or donations to a charity? Forget
about murder, rape, arson, drugs, porno, ect. Lets get rid of the tight wads. And guess what ? We are not going to end up in Abrahams bosom when
we die. Abraham has nothing to do with salvation, or the Lake of Fire.
The error of believing this was not a parable; is that the resurrection and the White Throne judgment hasnt happened yet. (No brainer) Also
Abrahams Bosom would be very crowded by now. (Luke 16:20-31) May this writer suppose, that since our creator endowed most of us with humor.
Yahshua might have injected some of it into the parable, when He said. Pluck your eye out, cut your hand, and foot off, if they make you sin. ( Mark
The people that were standing there, were not stupid. They knew that those members don't cause you to sin. Their mental picture of the multitudes
hopping around, on one foot, with one hand, and half blind, must have caused instant laughter from them. If Yahshua was serious with that
command. Most if not all Christians, should be getting their disability checks by now. Also, you would be cast into the Lake of Fire for not giving a
thirsty person a drink of water.
There is the parable of people casting out demons, doing wonders and prophesying
in Yahshua's name. He said I never knew you, depart from me, you who practice
lawlessness.(Matthew 7:22,23) No Lake of Fire here. Anyway, this is not something
the average person has to worry about, maybe some T.V. evangelists should.
Another assumption is (2 Thessalonians 1:7,8,9) Yahshua takes vengeance on those
that dont know Yahweh and dont obey the gospel of Yahshua. They shall be punished with ever lasting destruction. Let the reader take heed. You
don't know Yahshua if you
don't keep His Commandments. If you say you know Him and don't keep His commandments, you are a liar (1 John 2:4) We do know for sure, that
satan and his angels don't obey the Gospel or keep the law.
They are not forgiven, but mankind is, through the death and resurrection of Yahshua Messiah.In Daniels prophesy, (12:2) it speaks of many that
are asleep in the dust of the earth. They shall awake, some to everlasting life. Some to shame, and everlasting contempt. That is far less of a
punishment than the Lake of Fire, which is not mentioned.
Yahweh has canceled edicts in the past. This was always for the benefit of mankind. (Exodus 32:14) (Daniel 9:9) Yahweh will send His Angels to
gather all that offend, and those that practice lawlessness, they will be cast into a furnace of fire, with wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then the
righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom. (Mt 13:41-43)
Some Christians believe that when they are saved, they are sin free, and righteous.
Maybe they are more spiritual than the Apostle Paul. He said that when he sinned, it
wasnt him, but the evil, wickedness, and sin dwelling in him. (Rom 7:17) Sinning is
lawlessness and its not righteous.
As it is written, there is none righteous, no, not one (Romans 3:10) How do we
become righteous? Yahweh will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all nations. (Isaiah.61:11) When Yahweh's judgements are in
the earth, all inhabitants will learn righteousness (Isaiah 26:9) According to the Bible, we can't become righteous on our own. Yahshua said The hour
is coming that those in the graves shall come forth; they that have done good, to the resurrection of life; and
those that have done evil to the resurrection of damnation. (John 5:29)
The Greek word krisis in the Bible is used for both damnation and judgment. (Revelation 16:7) Says Yahweh's judgments are true and righteous
would agree that the evil and wickedness are satanic, which will be damned. Have
you ever done anything evil or sinful in your life?
Are you ready to cast the first stone? All those that take the mark of the beast, the
people not written in the book of life, and all others. They are instruments of satan
when taken captive by him. (2 Tim 2:26) They will be delivered from their body of
death, as Paul was waiting for. (Romans 7:24)
They will be bowing their knees to Yahshua Messiah and confessing to The Father at the judgment with all mankind. (Romans 14:11) People won't
believe that sin is of the devil, even though scriptures say so. They believe that all sin is man's doing and on his own. satan's tactics are in the
powerful influence he has over ALL mankind.The plain fact is, that there is no sin in a persons life without satans input.
The man that had 2000 demons cast out by Yahshua, had to be the most wicked in
the Bible. And yet he was sitting at Yahshua's feet, and in his right mind. The
scriptures show that our spirit is really us. That our bodies with its carnality, are only vehicles and not spiritual. In (Galatians 5:17) It speaks of the
flesh that lusts against our spirit, and our spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you dont do the things that you wish.
There are negative scriptures like: Vessels of wrath prepared for destruction. (Romans 9:22) There are other scriptures that tells of that spirit of evil,
wickedness, and sin that dwells with in us. This is love, not that we loved Yahweh, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the appeaser for our
sins. (1 John 2:2) The Bible is saying, even if you dont have the knowledge, don't believe, or love the Lord in this life, you will be saved in the next.
These scriptures explains it. "Look unto Me, and be saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am Yahweh, and there is none other". (Isaiah 45:22) That
unto me every knee shall bow, and every tongue take an oath. (Isaiah 45:23) As I live says Yahshua, every knee shall bow to Me, and every tongue
shall confess to Yahweh. (Romans 14:11) With the heart, one believes to righteousness, and with the tongue, confession is made unto salvation.
(Romans 10:10) Yes, Salvation is that simple when you add Yahshua's sacrifice.
There are no scriptures that say, its too late after death to accept Yahshua. People
that dont believe that, are blinded. (2 Corinthians 4:4) (Revelation 21:8) States: All liars,
(among others), will be cast into the Lake of Fire. A simple question; If Adolph Hitler and a liar were swimming together in the Lake of Fire. Would the
temperature be the same for both? If a person lied, and were accidentally killed, and had no time to repent, do they join Adolph?
.Was the Bible right when it said that all mankind will be saved and receive the knowledge of the truth.? Was it right when it said all mankind shall be
saved especially those that believe ? Was it right when it said Yahshua came to save the whole world ? No question about it, The Bible is always
right. In the index box at the begining, click on (80 verses all saved) These verses need no interpretation,and stand on their own.
