Christ: "I, if I be lifted up, will draw all men unto Me."

ALL MEN CALLED TO SALVATION
Pastor J. C. O’Hair
READ I TIMOTHY 2:4 TO 7 -- COLOSSIANS 1:20 AND 21-- JOHN 12:27 TO 33.

In the Scriptures listed we learn what is taught in Hebrews 2:9 and I John 2:2, that the Lord Jesus Christ on the cross tasteth death for every man and became the propitiation for the sins of the whole world.

In the shadow of the cross, Christ said, "Now is the judgment of this world" - "I, if I be lifted up, will draw all men unto Me." In Colossians 1:20 and 21 we learn that Christ in His death made peace through the blood of His cross, to reconcile all things unto God.

In I Timothy 2:6 we learn that Christ on the cross gave Himself a ransom for all.

We learn in I Timothy 2:4 that God will have all men to be saved. Then we read this in Ephesians I:11, "in Whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of Him Who worketh all things after the counsel of His own will. Then we read in Romans 5:18: "Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation: even so by the righteousness of one, the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life."

If it were not for many other Scriptures, which prove that salvation and eternal life are conditioned upon the individual's faith, we might deduce from the Scriptures quoted, that all of the condemned children of Adam will be justified. We praise God for the truth of Titus 2:11: "For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men."

We do praise God for the fact that eternal life is His free gift through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23).

We do praise God that salvation by grace through faith, the gift of God. (Ephesians 2:8 and 9 Titus 3:5 to 8 Romans 4:4 and 5).

We do praise God that Jesus Christ put sin away by the sacrifice of Himself and by His own blood entered heaven having obtained eternal redemption. (Hebrews 9:12,26 and 10:12).

We do praise God that without religion, ritual, law keeping, church-joining, struggling, striving, or even praying, the vilest or most respectable sinner can be saved by trusting in the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus Christ. "God's workmanship created in Christ Jesus unto good works". (Ephesians 2:10).

But hear these solemn words: "He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on Him." John 3: 36. "But we are not of them that draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul. (Hebrews 10:39). Read this interesting statement in I Timothy 4:10: "For therefore we both labor and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, Who is the Saviour of all men, especially of those who believe."

Some Christians have interpreted Colossians 1:20 to mean that God will reconcile Adam and all of his condemned descendents. Note Colossians 1:20: "And having made peace through the blood of His cross, by Him to reconcile all things unto Himself; by Him I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven."

To quote Colossians 1:20 without quoting Colossians 1:23 is certainly handling the Word of God ignorantly, if not deceitfully: for in verses 23, we have the condition, "if ye continue in the faith." One must have faith to continue in faith. This faith "IF" is used many times. Read John 8:24 - I Corinthians 15:2 - Romans 10:9 and 10. "He that believeth not the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abideth on him" (John 3:36).

Note in II Thessalonians 2:12 and 13 the difference between believing and not believing, "That they all might be damned who believed not the truth." "But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth.

Let us hear God's plain word regarding the responsibility of the ALL MEN for whom Christ died: "And the times of this ignorance God winked at: but now commandeth ALL MEN everywhere to repent. (Acts 17:30). God has provided salvation for all. (Acts 13:39).

  • Take the quiz:
    What type of Christian are you?

    Catholic
    You are a true Roman Catholic. You love your religion. You go by the Catechism, verbatum. You pray to God and the Saints. You believe in prayer for the dead and you believe Jesus is always present to you in the Holy Eucharist. You follow your beloved Pope and you try to do the best you can on your pilgrimage on this earth!

    Quizzes by myYearbook.com -- the World's Biggest Yearbook!

    Another quiz that assumes too much; though a million times better than the earlier quiz, located on the sidebar... Not all catholics are exactly like this description above; several, like me, don't pray for the dead but rather think that the dead are indeed better off and thus in a far better position to pray FOR US! Likewise, we don't go by the Catechism - we go by The Word and that is THE HOLY BIBLE. Also, we have respect for the Pope, but that is about it... Jesus is the Beloved One and the Redeemer - not any pope! We follow Him - not anyone in frocks! The quiz maker this time got it absolutely right on one point though: Jesus sure is always present in the wonderful mystery of the Holy Eucharist ~ Amen!




    The video for the track "God Is God" is based on the film 'The Color Of Pomegranates' (1969) directed by Sergei Paradzhanov.
