2 Thessalonians 2 :
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
One must belong to something before one can fall away from it. One cannot fall up to heaven, one can only fall down.
There is so much apostasy in the Grace Camp (and yeah, I call it that because it doesn’t necessarily mean a campsite 😉 but I digress – perhaps it is in a way – where they all hold hands beside the camp fire. But honestly, camp has more than one meaning if you look it up in the dictionary 😉 ), anyway, to the left one has the Universalists who proclaim that God has automatically reconciled all of the world unto Himself and isn’t imputing their trespasses unto them; and on the right we have the not-so-right-dividers who Bible blend Israel’s New and Old Covenants with the Apostle Paul’s mystery doctrine.
When God says He isn’t imputing the world’s trespasses unto them – it means that ALL OF THE WORLD – any man – His salvation is open to all and sundry today – that if anyone believes Christ’s finished work on Calvary’s cross (the word of reconciliation) God imputes His righteousness to that person’s account, and that person’s sins are imputed to Christ’s account, and since they have been imputed to Christ’s account – He cannot re-impute them to that person or give them their sin back as that would make a mockery of His FINISHED work on Calvary’s cross. Hence, God has given members of the Body of Christ the MINISTRY OF RECONCILIATION – in other words the means to get (all) men saved, i.e., the world, not just Israel or just a few nations – but all men in the world. His salvation is open to everyone and it’s free and comes with no strings attached. To have ALL men saved, and come to the knowledge of truth as per 1 Timothy 2:4.
The Bible blending Right Dividers have reverted back to denominationalism because they love tip-toeing through Israel’s doctrine, not to mention the fact that they like controlling people with “you can lose your salvation”, “you must do this” and if “God said it to Israel and since He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow – it means He doesn’t deal with people differently at different times – it means (according to them) that you’re a Hebrew (wink) although you don’t have a cooking clue which tribe you belong to (wink). And suddenly you find yourself having to endure to the end and keep the Law, trying to obey 10 commandments and forgetting about the other 623, besides you have tattoos – what a total misnomer – and you’re so busy “enduring to the end” that you have lost your freedom in Christ. Hop over to James for a little “kick in the rear end” – faith without works is dead, which somehow numbs your brain because you completely forget about what the Apostle Paul has stated in Ephesians 2:8-9, and Romans 4.
Yeah, keep them dumb so that you can control them and keep them in line. All sheep need a leader to be told what they must say, think and do – and so keep the $$ flowing in.
All sheep think the ENTIRE WORLD is automaticaly reconciled to God – when the Bible states that the unsaved are actually God’s enemies. Imagine being reconciled to your enemy through no sincere means of thought or belief from your side. You deny Christ, you hate Him – but you are reconciled to Him – does that make sense to anyone? You are reconciled to Him but at the end of your life you split hell wide open anyway? Universal reconciliation is not only a joke, but it’s damnable theology. It makes a mockery of Christ’s finished work on Calvary’s cross.
10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.
11 And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.
12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
13 (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.
14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.
15 But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.
Which means that when you were still dead in your what? Sin………… dead, remember – dead, dead, dead – Christ died for your sins. Did you ask Him to do it? Did you expect it? Did you ask Him? Nope. He did it while you were a filthy, dirty, rotten sinner – which means your sins were imputed to you, otherwise Paul wouldn’t state that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God – He would’ve said all aren’t having their sins imputed to their accounts.
