BE CALM . . . " Cease striving and know I am God ." Psalm 46:10
Now the Power and Glory of God in Jesus Christ far exceeds that for the healing of anyone or anything that could be imagined . " My thoughts are not your thoughts , and your thoughts are not My thoughts. " says God. Jesus emphasizes , " I have come that you may be one, " I in you and you in Me and us , one with My Father ! " [ That My thoughts will be your thoughts ] .
What Jesus accomplished by His work being born as a baby , growing into a man, His ministry as a man , His suffering , dying and being buried , and His resurrection from the dead, EXPLODES OUR MINDS , OUR HEART AND SOULS TO THE LIMITS , OF EXPERIENCE AND UNDERSTANDING - because it involves all the material world and encompasses all time and space , all that exists , to, all that could ever exist ! That is , from the beginning of God's own thought to His ever expanding thought to all eternity and beyond !
WHAT DID JESUS ACTUALLY DO ? !
God is not dormant , He is ever always expanding . If I should pray to God and ask Him to heal me , He would heal me far beyond any expectation I could have . . . and He would restore me to the level of God Himself . . . far greater in quality and quantity than I could ask , or understand , and I would be more whole and complete than I ever was , in the first place . My healing would EVEN reach out farther THAN ANYTHING I could expect , to all that concerns me, and all that surrounds me . It would affect NOT ONLY ME TO THE FULLEST BUT would go out to everyone and everything wrapped up in my known thoughts , and even to my unknown thoughts , ( that would be the magnificence of my healing , if I should ask God ) .
“ And He shall send Jesus Christ, which beforehand was preached unto you : Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution ( restoration , reconciliation ) of all things , which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began . ” - to bring all back TO GOD'S PERFECTNESS .
“ The restoration of all things as spoken by the mouth of all his Holy prophets since the world began . ” is to bring ALL GLORY , HONOR AND PRAISE to our Father and the Savior of the whole world , Jesus .
The Scriptures and Jesus have made it plain that God’s own people are always slow to believe what the prophets have spoken ( Luke 24:25-27 ) . The scriptures plainly declare Jesus Christ, Lord and Savior of the world ( John 4:42; 1 John 4:14 ) , most of God’s people have never come to realize and understand what it really means to believe in Him . But He has always had a “ little flock ,” a “ remnant ” who have walked into the Glory , and God's true reality of what Jesus and ' His Salvation ' really means . ( Luke 12:32 ; 1 Kings 19:18 )
The early believers believed quite differently from modern day believers . JESUS WAS 'THE WAY ' TO THE COMPLETENESS OF GOD ! The early believers believed in the bold promises and statements found in the Scriptures . Chris t, to whom , in whom , and for whom are all things will reconcile all things unto God ( Colossians 1:15-20 ) .
JESUS makes all things new ! ( Rev. 21:5 ) ,
MORE THAN NEW ! Hence His work is the restitution of all things ! ( Acts 3:21 ) ; He is Heir of all things ! ( Hebrews 1:2 ) ; in Him not only all nations blessed ! ( Galatians 3:8 ) , but even every family of the earth IS blessed ! ( Gen 12:32; 28:14 ) ; for the Father has given Him authority over all flesh , to give to whosoever was given to Him eternal life ! ( John 17:2 ) ; and so all flesh shall see the salvation of God
( Luke 3:6 ) since the Father has given all things into His hands . ( John 3:35 )
We will find every creature which is in heaven , and on earth , and UNDER the earth saying blessing and honor and glory and power be unto Him that sits upon the throne and unto the Lamb ( Rev. 5:13 ) . We find every knee of things in heaven and earth , and under the earth , bends to Him and every tongue confesses Him as their Lord ( Philippians 2:10 ) and we know that no one can confess Jesus as Lord except by the " Power from On High " ( 1 Cor. 12:3 ) .
For God , Whose counsel is immutable ( Hebrews 6:17 ) , Whose attitude towards His enemies is love unchanging ( Luke 6:27-35 ) , will have all men to be saved and come to the knowledge of the Truth
( 1 Timothy 2:4, KJV ) ; and all to come to repentance ( 2 Peter 3:9 ) ; and has shut all up unto unbelief , in order that He may show mercy upon all ( Romans 11:32 ) ; for ( out ) of Him, as Source , and unto ( or into ) Him , as End , are all things whatsoever
( Romans 11:36 ) ; and He has , therefore , put all things into subjection under Christ’s feet ( Ephesians 1:22 ) .
And so we are assured that God will gather into one all things in Christ ( Ephesians 1:10 ) ; and His grace comes upon all men unto justification of life
( Romans 5:18 ) . So Jesus , knowing that the Father had given all things into His hands ( John 13:3 ) , promises by His Cross to draw ( drag in the Greek ) all men unto Himself ( John 12:32 ). For having , as stated, received all things from the Father ( John 3:35 ) , all that was given come to Him shall come to Him and He will lose absolutely no one ( John 6:37-39); but if any stray, He goes after that which is lost till He find it ( Luke 15:4 ) . Despite the fact that many of God’s chosen and elect believe God’s hand is too short to save ! ( Isaiah 50:2 )
Absolutely , God’s hand is not too short to save
( Isaiah 59:1 ; 63:5 ) . He comes in order that all men may believe ( John 1:17 ) ; that the world , through Him , may be saved ( John 3:17 ) ; His grace brings salvation to all men ( Titus 2:11 ) ; for He takes away the sin of the world ( John 1:29 ); gives His flesh for it’s Life ( John 6:51 ) ; and , because the gifts and calling of God are without Repentance ( Romans 9:29 ) , He gives life to the world ( John 6:33 ) ; is the light of the world ( John 8:12 ); is the propitiation for the sins of the whole world ( 1John4:10 ) ; destroys the works of evil , not some of them only , but all
( 1John 3:8 ) ; abolishes death ( 2Timothy 1:10 ); puts all His enemies under His feet including death
( 1 Cor. 15:26 ) , is manifest to put away sin
( Hebrews 9:26 ) ; and thus subduing all things unto Himself ( Philippians 3:21 ; the context clearly shows this subjection to be conformity to Himself ) ; does not forget the dead , but takes the gospel to Hades
( 1Peter 3:19 ) ; of which He holds the keys
( Revelation 1:18 ) ; for He is the same ( Savior ) for ever ( Hebrews 13:8 ) ; thus even the dead are evangelized ( 1Peter 4:6 ) .
Thus all are made alive in Him ( 1Corinthians 15:22 ) ; for Christ finishes, completes His work ( John 17:4 ; 19:30 ): restores all things (Acts 3:21); and there is no more curse ( Revelation 22:2-3 ); for the creation is delivered from the bondage of corruption
( Romans 8:21 ) ; and so comes the end when Christ delivers up the Kingdom to God , Who is then All in All , because ALL God’s enemies ( last enemy being death) are defeated ( 1Corinthians 15:24-28 ) .
Salvation is a gift from God, it is not of works lest anyone be found boasting ( Eph 2:8 ) and that gift has been given to all men despite the fact that some of God’s own people don’t fathom such generous grace . ( Rom. 5:8; Matt. 5:1-16 ) .
We can be assured of all these wonderful and glorious things because God says , " Is anything too difficult for Me ? " ( Luke 1:37 ) and while many things are impossible with man , nothing is impossible with God . ( Matt. 19:26 ) Furthermore , God is love
( 1 John 4:8 ) , a love that love never fails , Ahavah Love ( 1 Cor. 13:8 ) , a love that lays down His life for not only His own, but His enemies as well and commands His disciples to do likewise .
( Matt. 5:38-48 ) Therefore, for God to endlessly punish His enemies would make Him a hypocrite commanding less powerful and less loving human beings to do what He is not willing to do . ( Matt. 23 )
There is nothing that can withstand His will and no plan of His can be thwarted . ( Job 4:42 ) The Son came to save the world and not condemn it
( Luke 5:59 ) . Jesus asked the Father to forgive those who crucified Him ( all of us ) ( Luke 23:34 ) . The Father has laid the iniquity of us all upon the Lamb of God ( Isaiah 53:6 ) . Jesus died for all of us . ( John 1:29 )
Punishment to God is not a verb or action word that describes what God is going to do, or exact to , or on something or someone , in revenge or anger , or retribution or just meanness and evil . You know this is not even a part of God ! It is A THOUGHT foreign to Him .
To fully understand the meaning of the word punishment , understand it is a noun , describing
a state of affair , a condition, a place of darkness , where there is no light , to be in blindness and hidden from , and separate from God . Which God says Himself . . . that His love is too great and can never be separate from you ! You are the SAME !
Indeed , we can enter into His peace , believing that indeed God is ! ( John 19:30 ) PERFECT, KULAH ! The gift of life has been given to everyone, to " see " and to " know " God ! ( Rom. 5:18 )
“ Love Never Fails , ” and “ nothing is impossible with God ” — surely His arm is not too short to save , too weak to restore, or so unfeeling to reconcile all !
In short , ALL WILL COME TO BELIEVE that our heavenly Father and His Son have the GLORY, WISDOM, POWER, ENERGY . LIFE AND LOVE , BY All of His Heart , All of His , Soul , All of His Mind , All of Might , to set all of creation free from its bondage of futility , death and darkness.
Our Father has and is raising up believers to declare this very thing ! Believe in Jesus , the Chosen One , THE MESSIAH , THE FULLNESS OF GOD , BY REVELATION , by revelation in us !
The Salvation of God Almighty Himself indeed , the Savior of the whole world and much more beyond explanation , to the PERFECTION OF THE GLORY AND MAJESTY OF GOD , THE HIGHEST EXTREME EXALTED RIGHTEOUS ONE , WHO HAS ALL SOVEREIGNTY AND DOMINION FOREVER !
