    Hi Gene,

    Again you develop new teachings of your own to offer instead of scripture.

    You are your own god it seems.

    T8….did not Jesus say ” if you being evil know how to give good gifts to your childern”…., he was talking to his deciples right?, now sense he calls them evil, will they also parish? Have you ever thought that perhaps it is the evil itself, that will parish, not the person? Has not God concluded all in unbelife that he might have mercy on all.

    It is common knowledge among those that study the Bible that humanity is sinful and death is the price we pay. Yes we are evil by nature, but God made a way for us to clothe yourselves in righteousness. This is a gift to us and is not because of our own effort. We need to accept this gift of salvation by repenting of our evil ways and turning to God.

    So while the flesh will perish, our souls are preserved and given a new house, a building made by God.

    T8….God said the ‘soul’ that sinneth “it” shall die, but we look for the resurection which will wittiness the redemption of our “bodies”. Accrding to the apostle Paul. Jesus never sinned he stillis alive in his original body he was born with. It was not possible for him to lose anything because he never sinned he is in the same body he was born with. “For God did not suffer his soul to see coruption in the grave”. He is alive forever in his original flesh and bone body.

    But none of this has to do with a eternal hell, right?.

    Peace and love to you and yours. ….gene

    Hi t8,

    YOU: It is common knowledge among those that study the Bible that humanity is sinful and death is the price we pay. Yes we are evil by nature, but God made a way for us to clothe yourselves in righteousness. This is a gift to us and is not because of our own effort. We need to accept this gift of salvation by repenting of our evil ways and turning to God.

    So while the flesh will perish, our souls are preserved and given a new house, a building made by God.

    ME: t8 your comment I find contradictory.

    NOT because of our own effort, “WE NEED” to accept the gift of salvation by repentance.

    REPENTANCE ALSO comes NOT through ourselves but through God calling us, God’s Spirit working in us to BRING us into repentance. Without God’s Spirit working in us, we are like animals, beasts. t8, an ignorant beast does not know God, but God gave humans a brain unlike other animals that is capable of learning from God through His Spirit teaching us.

    God CALLS, God GIVES mercy, He places His Spirit upon us creatures so we are not left to be just an ignorant beast.

    We need to separate the difference between the first death where sinners are destroyed and perish verses the second death.

    Judgement

    What is the point to raise people from the dead to then destroy them again? What is more righteous by the LORD, what is more scriptural? That God will be ALL IN ALL, where people are judged and come to the massive TORMENT that guilt brings, of which is where REPENTANCE occurs? Did not Paul profess that he was a wretched man? Or does God just wants to raise people from the dead to kill them again? What is destroyed? Is it not SIN and DEATH, is not death swallowed up into VICTORY? If death is swallowed up into victory, then SIN is destroyed. Is it the sinner that is destroyed or is it the sin IN man that is destroyed?

    What brings one man INTO repentance brings ALL men into repentance, of which is the work of God’s Spirit, otherwise one is delusional in his own vanity. The MERCY of God is giving instruction through His Spirit to an ignorant beast. THERE is AN ORDER, God has foreordained that order. This order served a purpose so we could SEE that it is IN FACT GOD that brings us to repentance and not ourselves, which you t8 seem to be confused about and it leads to a path that dispalys self-righteousness.

    Romans 11:30 For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief: 31 Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy. 32 For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all. 33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!

    t8 you are NOT repentant through your own self, God brought you to your repentance.

    After the second resurrection God is not willing that any should perish, He is only interested in making sin perish. What God declares, what God DESIRES is irrevocable, and He desires ALL MEN to come into repentance. God declares that He will be ALL in ALL.

    What is JUSTICE for a sinful human?…to rise from the dead and fear death for a second time and die again?…or…come to the realization of your own sins and feel the massive torment that comes with SHAME and self loathing?

    t8 it is NOT what God desires and then we are left to choose an offering, you apparently have no clue what GRACE means.

    That which God DESIRES is the SAME as His WORD which is irrevocable. This does not make us puppets by any means, it makes us creatures that were created to be instructed by God, made to exist in His image, and the POWER of His Spirit with His knowledge causes us to OVERCOME our IGNORANT CARNAL minds.

    For a man to have no life or awareness would require the spirit of God to return to God and for the soul to die as a result.

    The second death is like that, the first is not like that. The first death is separation from the body, not “annihilation.

    Thus your comment alluding to being annihilated and brought back to life is not what I teach at all.

    T8,  YES HE CAN,……  When  a man dies this is what happens, his living soul “parishes”, his spirit returns to him that gave it,  he is no longer a living soul, UNTILL HE OR SHE IS RESURECTED, then given a new body and spirit of life put back into it, and we becomes a living soul again,   but in the  second resurection the body is rejoined with the Spirit, and he becomes a living soul again also,  and God, not willing that any parish, judges them and gives them a repentence heart and they repent and are saved,  We are saved by “GRACE” IT IS A “GIFT” FROM GOD,  NOT FROM OURSELVES  NOT FROM OUR WORKS,  LEST WE “BOAST” . Now if God the Father took mercy on us and saved us, by his efectual working power, what makes you think he won’t have mercy on those in the second resurection?

    Those who are chosen  are going through their judgement now, for judgement must begin at the house of God.  Remember, “the fiery trial which has tried,  you as if some strange thing has happened to you”.

    Jodi is correct  T8 .

    Peace and love to you and yours. …….gene

    The fact that the graves were opened in Jesus resurrection doesn’t fit with your theory though.

    When we die, we immediately enter the presence of the Lord. At some future time, we will be given new bodies, similar to the body Jesus had after His resurrection. Until then, our souls are with the Lord, even under the altar of God.

    This was a hope expressed by Paul himself:
    “We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord.”

    He also said:
    “I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far”.

    I think Paul was correct Gene, so if I had to choose between his teaching and yours, then I align with Paul.

    Hi All

    I’ve been holding back, I know that most Christian don’t believe in Unaversal salvation. But I do. I can’t see how a person can read the Bible and not see it. Scriptures that may help.

    Here are several Scriptures that give us God’s Master Plan in just one sentence. It’s time we grow up and search the Scriptures for ourselves and stop putting our faith in men. Here are some profound Scriptures which the Church contends will never, ever be accomplished by God:

    1. “And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to BE THE SAVIOUR OF THE WORLD (I John 4:14)! I teach this, but does the Church teach that Jesus will save “the world”? NO!
    2. “This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to SAVE SINNERS; of whom I am chief [Gk: foremost–paramount, preeminent]” (I Tim. 1:15)! I teach this, but does the Church teach that Jesus will save all “sinners?” NO!
    3. “For the Son of man is come to seek and to SAVE that which was LOST [that’s everyone] (Luke 19:10)! I teach this, but does the Church teach that Jesus will save all who are “lost?” NO!
    4. “The next day John sees Jesus coming unto Him, and says, Behold the Lamb of God, which takes away the sin of the world (John 1:29). I teach this, but does the Church teach that Jesus will take away the “sin of the world?” NO!
    5. And He is the propitiation [to atone for, conciliate, look upon with mercy and favor] for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the WHOLE WORLD (I John 2:2)! I teach this, but does the Church teach that Jesus will atone for the “sins of the world–the WHOLE world?” NO it!
    6. “God our Saviour Who will have ALL MEN to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth” (I Tim. 2:3-4). I teach this, but does the Church teach that God will have “ALL men to be saved?” NO!
    7. “The Lord is… not willing that ANY should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (II Peter 3:9). I teach this, but does the Church teach that the Lord is not willing that any perish, but that ALL should repent, therefore, none will perish and all will repent? NO!
    8. “For therefore we both labor and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who IS the Saviour of ALL MEN, specially [‘specially’ does not mean ‘exclusively’ or ‘only’] of those that believe (I Tim. 4:10). I teach this, but does the Church teach that God is not only the Saviour of those that believe, but ultimately “God is the Saviour of ALL men?” NO!
    9. “…I came not to judge the world, but to SAVE the world (John 12:47). I teach this, but does the Church teach Jesus will actually accomplish what He came to accomplish “to SAVE THE WORLD?”NO!
    10. “…we have heard Him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the SAVIOUR OF THE WORLD (John 4:42). I teach this, but does the Church teach that the One to Whom they give lip service “is indeed the Christ, THE SAVIOUR OF THE WORLD?” NO, it does NOT!

    How many … how MANY Scriptures must you read and see in your own Bible before you will believe that God commissioned His Son to be the Saviour of the world and that Jesus WILL SAVE THE WORLD?

    These ten Scriptures are not wrongly translated, however, every single Bible verse which uses the word “hell” along with “forever and ever,” “everlasting,” “evermore,” and “eternal,” is wrongly translated, and this is relatively easy to study and prove to one’s own satisfaction.

    Virtually all clergyman in all Christendom teach:

    • Jesus will NOT “be the Saviour of the world,” but rather Saviour of only a few
    • Jesus will NOT “save [all] sinners,” but only a few
    • Jesus will NOT “save [all] that which was lost,” but only a few that are lost
    • Jesus will NOT “take away the sin of the world,”but only of a few
    • Jesus will NOT “have all men to be saved,” but only a few men
    • Jesus will NOT be that “Lord [which is] “not willing that any should perish,” but He WILL be that Lord which will actively participate in eternally torturing those who have perished
    • Jesus is NOT “the Saviour of all men,” but is the Saviour “of those that believe,” only
    • Jesus’ Own words “I came NOT to judge the world, but to save the world” will never happen
    • Jesus is NOT “indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.”

    And just why is it that the Church will not teach these astonishing declarations of God, that the whole world will be saved that all mankind will be saved? Is it because they have never read those ten Scriptures or the dozens and dozens like them? No. Well why then? Are you ready for this? The reason is that they don’t want the whole world (all mankind) to be saved: they don’t approve of God’s plan for the salvation of all mankind. They want to be special, and they don’t want their enemies to be saved unless they come under the control and authority of the Church.

    WHO WILL BELIEVE OUR REPORT (ISAIAH 53:1)?

    God bless 🙏 Anthony

    Hi T8

    You said: If people reject God, are you saying he forces them to live with him for all eternity?

    Me: well I didn’t say God forces anyone, He saves them the same way He saves us. He convicted us     of our sins, and brings us to the place of repentance. You might say He’s a consuming fire, He consumes the dross the wood, hay and stable in our life. This fire is symbolic not Literal the whole of Revalation is symbolic, have you ever seen a fire in a Lake, let me know if you have k. See Christian was brought up  to believe this way. To believe it’s Literal and not Symbolic which it is.  It changes how you see a lot of things. Jesus Christ tells us to love our enemies but He can’t love a sinner, doesn’t He go out for the last sheep.

    What about Abraham , when God show Him the stars in the sky and the sand on the sea shore, that many that’s a whole lot . I started conting the stars one night I got tired, had to stop. I went out the next night I look up and it seem like there were moreany even didn’t start to count them. But anyways T8 you must of study the words involved, like hell hades she’ll Gehenna the second death the lake of fire punishment  eternal for ever .and ever Ect. Ect.. and you must realize history of how the early church believed most not all believed in Unaversal salvation. I try to stay away from  pushing it on people.

    You must see how some stuff just don’t add up about this subject, and why a literal scene doesn’t do it leave alot of questions un- answered. When you look at it symbolic, the fire becomes a refining fire, or refines the sin in a person nor the person. God loves the sinners hates the sin. He goes out for the very last person. TC love your enemies as your self God does.

    I hope and pray that 🙏 helped.

    God bless

    Hi All

    Scripture use of the words “death” and “destruction.”
    The opinion of the annihilation of the wicked, which has at different times been held by some, as a refuge from the doctrine of never-ending punishment, is not only opposed to the whole analogy of our regeneration, which shews how death and judgment are the only way of life and deliverance for a fallen creature, but also so directly contradicts what is said of “death” in Scripture, that it is difficult to conceive how it could ever have been accepted by believers. Even before the reason of the Cross is seen, the very letter of Scripture, one might have thought, would have kept men from concluding that the “death,” “destruction,” and “perishing,” of the wicked means their non-existence or annihilation. For what is “death”? What is “destruction”? How are these words invariably used in Holy Scripture?

    First, as to “death,” are any of the varied deaths, which Scripture speaks of as incident to man, his non-existence or annihilation? Take as examples the deaths referred to by St. Paul, in the sixth, seventh, and eighth chapters of the Epistle to the Romans. We read, (Rom. 6:7,) “He that is dead is freed from sin.” Is this “death,” which is freedom from sin, non-existence or annihilation? Again, where the Apostle says, (Rom. 7:9,) “I was alive without the law once, but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died,”—was this “death,” wrought in him by the law, annihilation? Again, where he says, (Rom. 8:6,) “To be carnally minded is death,” is this death non-existence or annihilation? And again, when he says, (Rom. 8:38,) “Neither death nor life shall separate us,” is the “death” here referred to annihilation? When Adam died on the day he sinned, (Gen. 2:17,) was this annihilation? When his body died, and turned to dust, (Gen. 5:5,) was this annihilation? Is our “death in trespasses and sins,” (Eph. 2:1-2,) annihilation? Is our “death to sin,” (Rom. 6:11,) annihilation? When the “corn of wheat falls into the ground and dies,” (John 12:24,) is it annihilated; or is St. Paul right in saying, (1 Cor. 15:37,) “That which thou sowest is not quickened except it die?” Do not these and similar uses of the word prove beyond all question, that whatever else these deaths may be, not one of them is non-existence or annihilation?

    God bless

    Anthony, I wouldn’t say that God would never come up with a plan to save the wicked, after all he came up with a plan to save those that would repent and turn to him even though we fall short of his glory and with the knowledge that the soul that sins will die. If we just took that one verse, then no one would be saved. However, annihilation of the wicked is a central doctrine in scripture and not just a side note, so there are a lot of clear scriptures on this. However, I reserve all judgement on the subject knowing that all things are possible with God.

    When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and asked, “Who then can be saved?” Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

    But some people actually hate God and are truly wicked and I’m sure that Satan himself hates God. But your belief would have it that God will force them to repent and then love God and if not, then the Kingdom of God will from that point on have wickedness and darkness forever.

    As for the scriptures you quote about God being able to save the whole world etc, well that is of course is true. The price paid is enough to cover all mankind’s sins and not just for a time, but for all eternity going forward. In fact it is written that we can no longer sin which is a wonderful thing. So we are guaranteed eternal life with God and we cannot sin. I cannot wait. However, when it says God saves the world etc, I believe it is not to be taken as every soul because clearly many souls reject God and the wording doesn’t seem to ever suggest every soul, in fact the contrary. Look at Hebrews 7:25

    Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.

    It doesn’t say he will save everyone even though the price paid is enough, it says that he is able to save people but with certain conditions such as through Jesus Christ. But the biggest issue with God saving everyone even the unrepentant wicked are the verses that talk about the destruction of the wicked. There are many verses as you would know and which I have repeated here in this study. I will list three of them now:

    • They will be punished with everlasting destruction & shut out from the presence of the Lord & from the majesty of his power
    • “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord”
    • What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul?

    So let’s be clear. It doesn’t actually say God will save all souls. While he is not willing that any should perish, nevertheless some will ultimately perish.

    “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long-suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”

    However, I believe in the saying “never say never” because we would be arrogant to state any plan that God will action in the future thousands, millions, billions, or trillions of years from now that has not been revealed or to state that he will not action a certain plan. But for now, the scriptures are clear. The wicked will be destroyed and they have no promise of salvation unless they repent and turn to God through Jesus Christ our Lord. This is the reality and anyone who wants to risk it and be evil with the hope of salvation in a future plan, well they have no guarantee except that they will be destroyed. And why is it possible that they can be destroyed? Read on:

    And the Lord God said, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.” So the Lord God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken.After he drove the man out, he placed on the east side of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life.

    Hi T8

    • What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul?

    So let’s be clear. It doesn’t actually say God will save all souls. While he is not willing that any should perish, nevertheless some will ultimately perish.

    Me: for one I see that the main context of the Bible is this: the creation of Man, the fall of Man, and the Redemption of Man.  To Me Man (Adam & Eve) started out in the Garden, and Man will end up in the Garden (the New Heaven and Earth,) when it’s all said and done,throughout the ages. For it says All died in Adam, All will live in Christ. If I’m not mistake, this means All Men and Women of the whole world, not just the Body of Christ. Because it simply say All in Adam, all of humanity. Therefore All in Christ means all of humanity. Can this be possible that God saves and finish’s His plan?  I will get to your scriptures, but I think it would be better to get to some of the words used and what they mean and how some of theses word been mistranslated.

    T8 I will finish this post before the days out, I have to go right now k.

    God bless.

    Hi T8

    Hebrew: sheol translated-“pit” and “grave”]

    WHAT IS “HELL” TRANSLATED FROM?

    I think most of my readers realize that Jesus did not speak Archaic King James English. And most also realize that the King James Bible is not the one that the Apostles used. There were no “bibles” during Christ’s ministry; there were only the Hebrew Scriptures, and a popular Greek translation of those Hebrew Scriptures called the Septuagint. What we call the New Testament was not even written until near the end of the first century, and was not put into book form untill much later, and was not printed until many centuries later.

    The word “hell” is an Old English word that was used to translate several words found in the Hebrew and Greek manuscripts. What words? And why did they choose to use the Old English word “hell” as a translation? We shall see that it had absolutely nothing to do with scholarship, but everything to do with forcing pagan religion into the teachings of Jesus Christ. You don’t have to take my word for it; you will be able to judge for yourself as we go through it.

    Here are the words for which “hell” was inserted as a “translation” into English:

    The Hebrew word sheol(31 times)

    The Greek word gehenna(12 times)

    The Greek word hades(10 times)

    The Greek word tartaru s(1 time)

    That’s it.

    Every time the word “hell” is found in the King James Bible it is translated from one of these four words. We find the word “hell” 31 times in the KJV Old Testament and 23 times in the KJV New Testament for a total of 54 times. Later we will look at all 54 verses containing the word “hell,” plus the 31 times that sheol is translated as “grave.”

    Listen to what I am about to say very very carefully: If the word “hell” is the most accurate and correct English word available to translate, the Hebrew word sheol , and the Greek words gehenna, hades, and tartartus , then these four words must all have the same meaning. But in reality only two of these four words have the same meaning.

    The Hebrew word sheol and the Greek word hades are synonymous in meaning.

    And here is the proof from the Scriptures and the inspiration of the Holy Spirit that the Hebrew sheol and the Greek hades are identical in meaning:

    Acts 2:27: “Because You will not leave My soul in hell [Gk : hades, neither will You suffer your Holy One to see corruption is quoted from:

    Psalm 16:10: “For You will not leave My soul in hell [Heb : sheol; neither will You suffer your Holy One to see corruption.”

    And so the inspiration of the Spirit of God proves that the Greek word hades is the right and proper translation of the Hebrew word sheol .

    Whatever “hades” means, “sheol” means the same, and whatever “sheol” means, “hades” also means the same.

    We know for a fact that the Hebrew word sheol is translated “hell” 31 times in the KJV of the Bible. But… BUT, we also know for a fact that the same Hebrew word sheol is translated “grave” 31 times in the KJV Bible.

    Why is this? Why should this be? Why is there a 50/50 split on the translation of this word? Ask any pastor if the words “grave” and “hell” mean the very same thing in the Bible, and see what they will say. They will tell you, NO, that they are NOT the same, that they are very much different.

    It’s crazy, and yet this IS what has happened in the KJV with regards to the Hebrew word sheol -31 times “grave,” and 31 times “hell.” And what does UNCONSCIOUS DEATH IN THE GRAVE have in common with A CONSCIOUS LIFE OF ETERNAL TORTURE IN FIRE? Nothing-absolutely NOTHING! It’s as different as “black” and “white.”

    I do not even contend that this is bad scholarship. This is NO scholarship at all. This is nothing less than FRAUD-a Christian HOAX! Show me where else in historic academia we find such reckless abandonment of the facts? I am not contending for my personal preference in translating the scriptures, but to merely translate accurately and consistently what we find in ALL THE HEBREW AND GREEK MANUSCRIPTS.

    ONCE MORE: In the Hebrew manuscripts, we find the word sheol 65 times, therefore, in our English translations we should find ONE WORD for all 65 times sheol appears. But, no, we find ONE Hebrew word translated into THREE DIFFERENT ENGLISH WORDS-“pit, grave, and hell.”

    And in the New Testament we have the opposite of this Hebrew fraud: We have the ONE English word “hell” translated from THREE DIFFERENT GREEK WORDS-“gehenna, hades, and Tartarus.”

    Then we come to the greatest New Testament fraud of all regarding “hell.” One time and one time only we find the Greek word hades , translated not “hell,” but “grave.” Why? Why just one time, “grave?”Why? Because the translators did not want us “dumb sheep” to ever know what hades really means.

    If “grave” and “hell” had very similar meanings, then their use would not be so damning, but as they are opposites in every way there is no justifiable reason for their use. And if the Greek words “hades” and “gehenna” were very similar in meaning it might be justifiable to translate them into the same one English word, but they are not; they are totally different.

    At least half of the translations in the Old Testament are correct, in that sheol can be translated correctly as “grave.” But in the New Testament, not even once is the English word “hell” a justifiable translation for any Greek word found in the manuscripts.

    What about the words: eternal, forever, destruction, punishment, perish, ect.. ect..

    They made one word which is mistranslated, a doctrine.

    Hell: So this is according to translators, and this hell is The Lake of Fire,which they see as literal fire. Is it? I beg to differ. I see that only death and Hades is annihilated and the Devil, beast, and false prophet. It says those that  were dead talking about the White Throne Judgment, they we’re judged according to their works. Why do you think they we’re judged? Do you think that, maybe there are differ degrees of Hell or  annihilation?

    Something to think about.

    More later.    God bless T8

    Hi T8
    “Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. If any man’s work abide which he has built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but HE HIMSELF SHALL BE SAVED; YET SO AS BY FIRE”
    (I Cor. 3:13-15). They will be be judge at the White Throne Judgement. why?

    God bless
