Do You Really Believe That?
I’m truly sorry for people who are being lied to by preachers who compromise the truth of God, speak smooth things, brag on the flesh, make God a doddering old grandfather and the Lord Jesus Christ a failing, fumbling, faltering pretender who sure does wish that everybody liked Him.
Here is where we are today. A true preacher can tell the people who God is, and that the Lord Jesus Christ is not an option but a necessity, and that as God He is the sovereign of all and will either save or destroy forever.
The oily preacher comes along and tells the sinner that his will is supreme and God can’t unless he allows him.
Yet in spite of this, the Lord Jesus “WILL SAVE HIS PEOPLE” (Matthew 1:21)!
How do I know this?
Because the Bible tells me so. Those who believe and teach that Christ died for every man teach contrary to the very character and nature of God Almighty. If Christ died for all men, where is the justice of God?
The scriptures say, “The Lord laid on Him the iniquity of us all” and that “He was wounded for our transgressions” (Isaiah 53:4-6).
If God laid on Christ all the sin of all men, and the punishment of them inflicted on Christ, yet multitudes of them are punished in hell for them, where is the justice of God?
Men say it is unjust to punish for the same crime twice.
Would God be just to punish Christ for a man’s sins, then punish the man, too (Romans 3:24-26)?
If a man pays another’s debt, the creditor would not be just to require payment of the debtor. God is just; if Christ paid for my sin or yours by His death, God cannot send me or anyone else to hell for whom Christ died.
To believe that Christ died for all men is contrary to the POWER OF GOD.
“The Lord’s hand is not shortened that it cannot save.”
“Power belongeth unto Thee.”
If all men are not saved, it must be from a want of WILL in God or from want of POWER. They say He wills that all men be saved, so it must be from a lack of power.
If that is so, He is not omnipotent!
He must be lying when He says He “has all power in Heaven and earth.”
You will say, ‘it is because they won’t let God save them’; is man mightier than his maker?
“Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherds strive with the potsherds of the earth.”
I can say without a doubt that all for whom Christ died for will be saved, because of the love, wisdom; justice and power of God.
