• Rev 21:8 . . . All liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.
Greetings NyawehNyoh, it's me again~While I may admire some things about your past posts, on this doctrine I reject it 100%, because it goes against God's testimony of the truth. I've written on this several times to you and will not continue doing so, but I do desire for the sake of any new person reading your lastest post Re: Hell's Daily Tally
~will say two thing to you:First:
what scriptures do you have to support your doctrine that there is at this moment
a burning hellfire that has been burning since Cain, where the wicked are living UNCONSUMED, and that will be resurrected from there only to be judged and then cast in the lake of fire? Just one scripture would suffice. Do you know just how irrational that doctrine is? The faith which God is well pleased with~ it is not irrational, but very logical to any man with true wisdom. Secondly:
That wicked do not
have eternal life in any sense whatsoever should be obvious to any spiritually minded person. Question for you: what does the second death mean to you?
Please give us your understanding. The lake of fire IS the second death
is it not?
By the “unreached,” I mean those mentally competent and responsible men and women who were receptive to truth, any truth, but who died without any opportunity whatsoever of hearing the Good News about Jesus and responding to it. In other words, I'm speaking of adults who had no occasion to be exposed to any kind of special disclosure, whether by direct contact with God, Jesus, angels, prophets, apostles—or by way of scripture. We will not address those who were or could have been exposed to some form of special revelation but neglected or refused to accept the opening. They are not included in these thoughts.
Buff~Trust all is going well with you. A couple of thoughts concerning your post.
There will be thousands of MILLIONS.....living in the New heaven and earth.
Genesis 24:60~And they blessed Rebekah, and said unto her, Thou art our sister, be thou the mother of thousands of millions, and let thy seed possess the gate of those which hate them.
Many of these thousands of millions, will never have heard of Jesus Christ, especially so to the degree that we have, and even among us, still God's revelation of truth is not given to the same measure unto all. That being said, I will add this: regeneration is God's work apart from ALL MEANS
, including his written testimony to us concerning many great doctrinal truths. The written testimony of God is for those men and women whom God HATH quickened to life that they may KNOW concerning WHY they have hope, and desire to live differently than others, for apart from God's written revelation WE WOULD NOT KNOW, even though we may live differently than others, but the reason for desiring to do so would be hidden from us without God's word. He could have chosen other means to give us this revelation, but he chose the foolishness of preaching to convey these truths to us. He just as easily could have tress growing messages to us every so often, and thousands of millions other ways, since is wisdom and power in infinite.
My friend~just as the prophet Jonah said:
Jonah 2:9~"But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that that I have vowed. Salvation is of the LORD.
Jonah had to learn this truth the hard way, we can read and believe and preach it. God does not NEED our hands, feet, nor money to get salvation to the lost world, he is more than able to do it BY HIMSELF just as he did with Abel before Billy Graham came along~who vainly thought that God called him to get unregenerate men born again and to add to the number, giving many a false hope of eternal life. And most of these people (ones truly born of the Spirit of God) we shall never meet in our lifetime, just as they will never meet us:
2nd Timothy 2:19~"Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.
