The   Bible   explicitly   states   in   1 Corinthians   15:28    God   be   ALL   in   ALL.   It’s   a   done   deal.   “All”   means   “all”…   no exclusions…   not   even   this   beautiful   little   girl…   staring   into   nowhere…   eating   scraps   on   this   floor   of   desolation. Please   read   your   Bible   with   the   Holy   Spirit   only,   always   scrutinizing   the   Word   for   modal   auxiliary   verbs   added… little   words   seeding   doubt.   These   words,   like   the   “may’s”   and   the   “might’s”,   are   usually   added   to   the   Greek   verb when   it   comes   to   the   salvation   of   man   and   the   unlimited   atonement   of   Christ.   In   the   case   of   this   specific   verse…     an   added   “may”   appears   in   virtually   all   versions   under   Strong’s   #1510…   even   “might”   in   one   case   I   know   of. These   words   are   strategically   used   within   the   subjunctive   mood…   to   give   rise   to   uncertainty.    These   little   woven- in   words   are   like   subtle   ‘Pied   Piper’   tunes,   lulling   their   readers   onto   a   path   of   sorrow…   of   destruction.   Biased translations are running rampant… to profess everlasting damnation.  And the only place to do that? Grammar. Seeding   doubt   has   only   one   agenda…   to   instil   fear…   knowing   that   the   fearful   is   easily   controlled.   Seeding   doubt is such an easy- and successful tool in this competitive- and insecure world. And   this   is   exactly   the   most   brilliant   place   for   the   Adversary   to   play   his   tricks…   his   goal   being   to   deceive   a   third of   the   world   population   (Christians)…   the   place   where   he   can   play   with   GRAMMAR…   at   the   translating   hands   of modern   day   scribes.   Oh   how   cunning   he   is…   how   successful…   how   scrupulous!   By   saying   this,   let   there   be   NO doubt   whatsoever   that   I   am   not   pointing   fingers   to   those   who   are   assigned   to   do   Biblical   translations,   but   to the   one   assigned   to   deceive   the   world…   the   one   Revelation   12:9   talks   about.   When   I   say   assigned,   it   goes without   saying   that   God’s   ultimate   Sovereignty   determines   everything.   Satan   can   do   nothing,   if   it   is   not   assigned by   God…his   Creator.   Please   read   what   God   says   in   Romans   9:20 .   Everything   and   everyone   is   clay   in   the   hands of God. So, having said this… Have   you   EVER   thought   of   putting   ALL   blame   on   GOD…   and   not   on   Satan?   Highly   unlikely.   And   if   you   regard yourself   a   Christian…   you   of   all   people   should   know   that   God   is   in   charge   of   the   Adversary   (Satan)…   of   everyone and   everything   ( Isaiah   45:7 ).      The   Strong’s   word   “evil”   in   this   verse   actually   means   “adversity”.   Are   you   consistent in   your   thinking   as   far   as   God’s   Sovereignty   is   concerned…      His   control   of   all?   Because   if   you   play   with   His Sovereignty   and   acknowledge   it   only   when   it   suits   you,   then   there   will   be   some   grave   explaining   to   be   done   on the   Lord’s   Day.   And   in   this   particular   case…   the   proverbial   “there   will   be   hell   to   play”   is   very   much   appropriate… albeit   the   “hell”   being   of   NO   eternal   duration   at   all…   like   billions   want   to   believe.   The   news   is   supposed   to   be the   best   news   ever   for   you…   or   is   it   perhaps   not?      This   is   SUCH   a   serious   matter,   that   sugar-coated   chatter   has no room here. This   is   the   most   pivotal   connection   to   make…   grasping   that   all   the   pain   in   the   world   is   not   on   the   account   of man,   but   on   the   account   of   our   Sovereign   God.   This   is   the   ONLY   way   to   make   sense   of   the   chaos   and   pain   in this   world…   the   only   way   of   getting   inner   peace…   the   only   way   of   having   empathy   with   all   people…   including yourself…   the   only   way   of   inner   freedom.   Pain   is   there   for   a   reason,   but   the   moment   we   realize   its   role   in   God’s plan   with   us,   it   becomes   much   more   bearable…   and   endurance   becomes   easier.   Grasping   this   will   make   you realize   that   it   is   not   life   on   this   planet   that   counts…   but   the   everlasting   life   of   joy   hereafter…   awaiting   ALL mankind. Then   you   will   know   that   all   the   pain   inflicted   upon   you   was   not   on   the   account   of   mortal   man,   but   on   the account   of   God.   Then   you   will   know   that   previously   you   never   knew   God   and   kept   Him   in   a   self-fabricated mould.   Then   you   will   know   that   the   pain   you   endure   is   coming   from   the   Ultimate   Father   who   disciplines   His child   with   Ultimate   Love   and   not   vindictiveness.   He   inflicts   our   wounds…   and   He   heals   them   again.   We   see   this in   Job   5:17-18 .   Then   you   will   experience   the   liberation   of   forgiveness…   no   matter   what   the   atrocity   against   you was.   Then   you   will   know   that   the   only   place   to   go   with   your   pain   is   to   God’s   breast…   where   He   wants   you   to be…   where   He   can   heal   you.   Then   you   will   be   able   to   say   like   Stephen   in   Acts   7:60    “Lord,   do   not   hold   this   sin against   them”.      Then   you   can   say   like   Jesus   in   Luke   23:34    “Father,   forgive   them,   for   they   do   not   know   what   they are   doing”.      Then   you   will   remember   that   God   uses   evil   ( Isaiah   45:7 )   for   the   good   ( Romans   8:28 ).   Then   you   will know   that   God   puts   love   in   the   heart   of   man   whenever   He   wants   to   ( Ezekiel   36:26 ).   Then   you   will   be   able   to   love ALL   with   an   agape   love…   because   you   deeply   know   God   ( 1   John   4:7 ).   Then   you   will   know   that   agape   love   is   NOT a   feeling,   but   the   refraining   from   deliberately   harming   another…   with   words,   thoughts   and   acts   alike   ( Romans 13:10 ). But back to grammar… 1 Corinthians 15:28

Strong’s numbers;                    Greek text (Westcott and Hort, 1881);                  My transliteration.
(There are more examples, such as the above, that I will add at a later stage). Take   note   that   “may”   does   not   appear   in   the   above   verse   at   all.   It   is   not   “may   be”,   but   simply   “be”.   Let   me elaborate   a   little   on   the   emotion   FEAR.   Doubt   paves   the   way   to   insecurity…   and   insecurity   to   fear.   And   why   is fear    the    target    of    control?    Because    fear    is    addictive.    The    world    runs    on    ‘fear    fuel’    as    most    people    are subservient   to   this   exciting   emotion.   Excitement   and   sensation   is   what’s   appealing…   not   a   quiet   life   at   all.   No challenge…   no   excitement…   only   ‘boredom’.   Fear   is   a   more   attractive   challenge,   because   the   adrenaline   rush   it gives, prompts one to pursue the ‘satisfaction of personally overcoming’ this perceived danger. Fear   has   many   manifesting   faces,   spreading   out   from   one   origin…   the   fear   of   authority…   its   core   manifestation being   rebellion.      Lucifer   was   the   first   to   introduce   this   fear-based   rebellion   to   God’s   creation…   and   the   ripple effect    is    still    going    stronger    and    stronger.    Cruelty    and    violence    exponentially    soar    worldwide…    across    all religious   borders.   Subtle   cruelties   and   violence   are   just   as   devastating   as   their   graphic   counterparts.   So-called Christian   communities   are   not   excluded…   and   why?   Because   they   also   run   on   ‘fear-fuel’…   albeit   fear   of   an ‘everlasting’   hell-fire   continuously   haunting   them.   Fear   can   never   ever   have   love   as   a   manifestation…   only   deep- seated   insecurity   and   hatred   surfacing   ever   so   frequently.   Fear   is   all   about   pursuing   control…   with   war   upon war all over… be it on a personal- and global level alike. Nearly   all   ministries   on   the   net   proclaim   the   lie   of   eternal   damnation.   Do   they   ask   for   donations?   See   for yourself.   In   principle   there   is   nothing   wrong   with   receiving   a   living   from   preaching   the   Gospel.   The   condition, however,   is   that   the   True   Gospel…   the   good   news   of   God…   being   preached.   People   are   generous   when   it   comes to   appeasing   messages.   Gullibility   is   fed   by   soothing   words…   not   reprimanding   ones.   Please   see   2   Timothy   4:3 . The   Truth   is   never   on   the   agenda   of   pursuit…   as   it   is   simply   too   painful.      Who   among   the   ‘Christian’   community wants   to   hear   that   there   is   no   eternal   damnation?   Hard   to   find.   Why?   Because   that   would   mean   to   throw   one’s ‘exclusive right to heaven’ out the window. Paul   never   asked   money   for   himself   ( 2 Corinthians   2:17 ).   He   was   a   free   man   to   tell   the   Truth…   since   he   was   not dependant   on   the   favour   of   man.   He   told   the   Truth   to   stay   in   the   favour   of   God.   See   Galatians   1:10 .   Is   teaching ‘everlasting   damnation’   Biblical?   No,   it   isn’t.   Living   off   false   teaching   is   missing   the   mark.   See   1   Timothy   6:3-6   and 1 Timothy 6:9-11 .  Something significant about the pastor of one of these “donate” ministries… He   was   approached   by   someone   having   had   trouble   around   Isaiah   63:17 .   The   question   posed   was   the   origin   of Lucifer’s   first   desire   for   evil.   It   came   as   no   surprise   to   me   that   the   pastor   could   not   answer   that   question.   And why?   Because   his   “everlasting   hell”   doctrine   does   not   gel   with   God   HIMSELF   being   that   origin.   So   simple   to answer   when   one   acknowledges   God’s   Sovereignty   in   all…   even   when   it   comes   to   evil.   Please   see   Isaiah   45:7 . See…   acknowledging   God   being   the   Founder   of   all,   one   has   no   problem   making   sense   of   so   much   in   the   Bible… like ‘sticky’ verses ignorance stumbles against. If   one   knows   the   Absolute   Truth   of   Jesus’   unlimited   atonement   for   ALL,   then   money   never   comes   into   play…   let alone   into   the   mind.   The   freedom   it   gives   is   SO   overwhelming   and   joyful,      that   one   only   wants   to   share   it   with the whole world… for free… for “mahala” (in South African slang).   but… back to the kids… If   people   but   knew   the   extent   of   damage   this   ridiculous   doctrine   of   an   eternal   hell-fire   of   damnation   is   doing   to little   children.   It’s   criminal   to   say   the   least!   The   fear   that   this   devastating   doctrine   embeds   in   a   child’s   memory,   is so   destructive,   but   they   suffer   in   silence…   not   able   to   express   themselves   at   that   vulnerable   stage.   It   is   a   known fact that fear has developmental- and cognitive implications on little children. Jesus   has   invited   the   little   children   to   His   breast   in   Matthew   19:14 ,   saying   loud   and   clear   that   the   Kingdom   of heaven   belongs   to   them…   and   those   like   them.   Present   tense.      He   talked   about   ALL   children,   having   made   no exclusions.   And   please   note…   the   Bible   also   says   that   He,   Jesus   Christ   will   rescue   all   from   the   ‘fire’   on   the   Day   of His   second   coming   in   1 Corinthians   3:15 .   Please   read   this   verse   carefully.   Read   about   the   destruction   of   the inferior   buildings…   but   most   importantly…   read   about   the   salvation   of   their   builders!   Jesus   will   pull   ALL   out   of the spiritual flames of His purifying Fire. Children   are   supposed   to   have   a   care-free   start   in   life…   not   having   to   face   such   a   horrific   threat…   introducing God   to   them   as   One   going   to   torture   with   an   everlasting   burning   hell   in   the   end.   This   is   the   picture   they   get   of God…   and   this   is   exactly   where   adrenalin   addiction   starts   already…   at   a   vulnerable   age.   The   satisfaction   and ‘power’   of   taking   part   in   one’s   own   destiny   is   the   bait…   however   not   realizing   the   abomination   this   attitude   is   to God…   the   God   who   gave   His   all-inclusive   grace   through   Christ.   The   saddest   of   all   is   the   fact   that   children   of ‘eternal-hell-believing’   parents   are   taught   from   small   already   to   regard   themselves   as   being   exclusive.   This logically   gives   rise   to   an   arrogant   haughtiness   towards   other   kids   who   come   from   different   religions…   verbally killing them with their condemning words… banning them to an ‘eternal hell’. And just to bring in God’s Sovereignty and total control over all… Where   is   the   origin   of   all   the   religions   of   the   world?   Satan?   Man?   If   your   answer   is   positive   around   either   of   the two,   then   please   think   again   about   where   you   stand   around   God’s   Sovereignty.   GOD   is   the   Founder   of   ALL religions for crying out loud. Does   Paul   not   say   in   Hebrews   12:2    that   Jesus   is   the   Founder   and   Perfecter   of   Faith?   Does   he   not   also   say   in   this verse   that   because   of   the   immense   joy   that   was   laid   before   Jesus,   Jesus   was   willing   to   endure   the   unimaginable suffering   at   the   cross?   And   what’s   more…   can   we   for   one   moment   think   that   Jesus   was   joyful   for   only   a   few… ‘knowingly’   that   the   horror   of   everlasting   torture   awaits   the   rest   (as   billions   believe)?   It’s   beyond   absurd.   Jesus   is LOVE.   I   thank   God   for   verses   like   this   one   (and   there   are   a   myriad   of   them)…   verses   that   “everlasting-hell- believing-Christians” simply ignore… for obvious reasons. Hebrews 12:2 “fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” - New International Version Since   fire   has   all   to   do   with   purification,   Jesus   could   not   wait   to   get   beyond   the   purifying   part   to   the   joy   part.   He could   not   wait   to   set   the   fire   ablaze…   to   discipline   His   children   unto   purity…   like   a   loving   heavenly   Father   would do.  Jesus is our Father  as well ( Isaiah 9:6 ). And this is exactly why He said what He said in the following verse… Luke 12:49 “I came to cast fire upon the earth, and how I wish it were kindled already!” - Berean Literal Bible Isaiah 9:6 “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” - New International Version Back to the religions of the world… Jesus created all faiths, but will purify all the false faiths to become the perfect and pure Faith… the Faith of the Gospel of Christ. “Perfecter” in this verse also means “finisher”. All will come to completion eventually. God   has   a   plan   with   adversity.   That   is   why   He   created   it.   “Why   then   did    He   create   adversity   in   the   first   place?”… you   may   ask.   So   that   ALL   mankind   will   be   drawn   unto   Christ   and   know   Him   and   worship   Him   for   Who   He   is John 12:32 ). Even if this would mean through pain and suffering… whether in present time… or life hereafter. It is all about knowing the True God! Did   Adam   and   Eve   know   God   and   did   they   appreciate   Him   for   who   He   was   (is)   and   His   incredible   blessing…   the Garden   of   Eden?   Apparently   not…   otherwise   their   departure   from   this   place   of   bliss   would   not   have   been necessary.   They   had   one   field   day   after   the   other   and   did   not   have   the   faintest   idea   of   what   they   had.   God   was constantly   there   in   their   midst.   But   God   in   His   wonderful   Plan   would   soon   change   that   in   the   Book   of   Genesis. Don’t   we   all   know   that   by   nature   we   do   not   appreciate   something   good   or   someone   good…   until   we   do   not have that something or someone in our midst any more? Adam and Eve were human beings just like us. It is all about obedience to the Law of Christ in the New Testament… the Law of righteous FAITH. People   are   people…   grown-ups   and   children   alike.   We   need   to   feel   what   evil   feels   like   first   before   we   are   able   to opt   for   the   “good”.   The   Bible   pertinently   gives   hope   to   the   ungodly…   the   unbelievers   who   did   not   know   Jesus Christ.   They   will   get   few   stripes   ( Luke   12:48 ).   But   beware   the   ones   who   were   exposed   to   the   all-inclusive   Gospel (Good   News)   of      Jesus   Christ,   but   deviated   from   that      path   of   glory…   the   path   of   faithfulness…   for   selfish reasons.   Many   stripes   await   them   ( Luke   12:47 ).      Did   Jesus   Himself   not   say   that   the   first   will   be   last   and   the   last will   be   first?   Please   read   Matthew   20:8-16 .   Parables   are   powerful   messages…   and   always   relevant…   even   to   this day. ‘Everlasting-hell-believing’   people   flock   together   at   gatherings   where   they   have   the   [pseudo]   assurance   that they   will   escape   this   ‘hell-fire’…   simply   because   they   are   made   to   believe   (and   relax)   in   their   exclusive   privilege of   the   rite   of   passage   to   heaven   through   the   ‘power’   they   have   with   their   own   ‘free   will   and   -choice’.   An exhilarating   feeling…   however,   alas…   a   fatal   one.   Children   are   taught   that   in   order   to   make   it   to   heaven   one must   do   something…   even   when   this   “do   something”   means   to   choose   to   believe   in   Jesus.   What   they   do   not teach   their   children   is   the   “WHAT”   about   Jesus.   The   “WHAT”   about   His   death…   the   “WHAT”   faith   around   Jesus Christ.   It’s   all   about   the   MISSING   [ignored]   part   that   will   give   them   total   freedom   and   joy.   The   part   that   says Jesus   has   done   it   all   already   at   the   cross   on   Golgotha…   having   set   the   bill   for   sin   for   all   forever.   Kids   will   know from   scratch   that   they   are   good   enough…   because   of   what   Jesus   did   for   them   AND   the   rest   of   all   the   other   kids in the world. But   no…   they   are   programmed   to   put   the   focus   on   themselves…   to   achieve…   to   demand   a   ‘pat   on   the   back’… rather   than   give   Christ   all   the   glory   for   His   total   atonement…   for   HIS   achievement.   The   world   is   programmed   to believe   that   its   destiny   lies   within   itself.   And   the   obvious   result   of   such   a   failing   concept?   Chaos,   misery   and global   feud.   From   generation   to   generation   this   misconception   is   carried   forward…   a   diabolical   cycle   that   can only be broken with the Truth… the Truth within the Good News of Jesus Christ. To   depict   God   as   One   who   will   forever   abandon   ANYONE   in   the   end…   is   playing   with   fire…   playing   with   God, who   IS   the   Fire…   the   “lake   of   fire”   in   Revelation   21:8 .   It   will   painfully   burn…   until   purity   is   achieved.   Correction   is painful…   don’t   we   all   know   this?   God   is   a   God   of   painful   discipline…   but   ultimately   a   God   of   LOVE.   Promoting Him   as   One   who   will   cause   everlasting   torture   to   trillions   in   the   end   is   ultimate   slander   and   blasphemy…   with an   immense   implication.   To   think   that   the   silly   man-fabricated   ‘free   moral   agency’   can   overrule   the   ultimate grace of God’s loving Sovereignty, is a complete lack of logic and sound thinking… and… lofty  self-service. ‘Christians’   believing   in   this   fallacy,   should   start   worrying   about   their   take-on   around   the   ‘everlasting’   part   of their   doctrine   of   an   ‘everlasting   hell’…   about   carrying   this   lie   forward.   What   does   Jesus   say   in   Luke   17:1-2    about those   letting   another   stumble   [with   lies]?   Please   take   a   look.   And   in   the   event   of   you   feeling   insulted   reading this,   please   see   it   as   the   ego   at   play…   and   a   red   light   going   up   for   you.   To   aggressive   Christians   on   the   defence when   confronted   about   their   “everlasting-hell”   doctrine…   I   have   a   question.   Are   you   defending   yourself…   or   are you   defending   the   Sovereignty   of   God?      It’s   clearly   yourself…   isn’t   it?   It’s   time   for   people   to   find   out   what   the “lake   of   fire”   is   really   all   about.   It’s   time   for   ‘Christians’   to   check   their   Bibles   around   the   grammar   applied.   This   is indeed a warning. But…   it’s   up   to   God   for   you   to   take   it   seriously.   Luke   16:22-31    is   a   significant   example   when   it   comes   to   warning around   God’s   discipline.   There   is   ONLY   one   place   of   safety…   and   that   is   within   the   loving   Sovereignty   of   God. Period.   To   stay   within   the   ‘free   will’   myth   would   be   seemingly   ‘less   costly’   than   to   admit   ‘free   will’   being   a   myth all    along.    Thereby    saving    face    from    being    laughing    stock    after    many    years    of    advocating    it.    Virtually    all ‘Christians’   silently   battle   with   this   dilemma   of   “free   will”   and   an   “everlasting   hell”   on   the   one   hand…   and retrospectively   the   Sovereignty   of   God   and   a   God   of   love   on   the   other   hand.   And   this   battle   is   kept   being   an inner battle… hidden from the outer world. A   brilliant   illustration   of   this   worldwide   phenomenon   is   in   the   fairy   tale   "The   Emperor's   New   Clothes"   by   Hans Christian   Andersen…   where   people   are   scared   of   appearing   stupid   to   others.   The   price   of   vanity,   however…   like that   of   the   emperor…   is   indeed   a   costly   one.      It   took   an   innocent   child,   who   was   too   young   of   having   a   desire   to keep   up   a   pretense,   to   blurt   out   the   emperor’s   nakedness.   On   the   surface   a   seemingly   silly   story…   but   in   affect a   story   with   a   powerful   punch   of   reality.   By   nature   children   are   so   wonderfully   humble   and   honest…   no   wonder Jesus   invited   them   into   His   arms   ( Matthew   19:14 )…   into   His   Kingdom   ( Matthew   18:3 ).   It   was   the   one   little   child amongst   many   adults   in   Andersen’s   story   who   was   the   brave   one…   the   one   with   courage…   not   the   hordes   of grown-ups.   And   why?   Because   the   little   child   has   not   been   programmed   with   lies   by   egoistic-motivated   grown- ups (yet). What   did   God   say   in   Nahum   1:12    about   the   many?   What   did   He   say   in   Matthew   7:22    about   the   many?   What   did God   say   in   Revelation   1:7    about   all   peoples   on   earth…   the   many?   What   did   God   say   in   Matthew   7:13    about   the many?   The   little   child   is   the   brave   one…   the   one   with   courage…   the   one   who   will   be   spared   the   “lake   of   fire”   in Revelation   21:8 …   as   not   being   amongst   the   “cowardly”   (Strong’s   #1169)   and   the   “liars”   (Strong’s#5571)   in   this verse.   Interest   to   notice   the   way-back   date   this   fairy   tale   originates   from…   back   in   1335   already.      This   just   goes to   show   that   what   the   Bible   says   in   Ecclesiastes   1:9 ,   is   still   relevant...   the   world   in   the   late   middle   age   days   being the   same   as   the   world   today.   Nothing   has   changed…   especially   when   it   comes   to   the   vanity   of   man.   God   can   do anything… even using modern day fairy tales with deep meanings… modern day parables for that matter. So-called   ‘free   will’   is   what   has   put   this   world   in   such   a   mess.   Total   submission   to   God   is   for   the   brave…   not   the faint-hearted.   Total   submission   is   what   God   wants   from   every   single   one   ever   born…   and   it   is   exactly   what   He intended to happen… before the foundation of the earth already. May God bless you and give you a discerning mind… and a searching heart.
God all in all 1Corinthians 15:28

The       Bible       explicitly       states       in 1 Corinthians    15:28     God    be    ALL    in ALL.   It’s   a   done   deal.   “All”   means   “all”… no   exclusions…   not   even   this   beautiful little     girl…     staring     into     nowhere… eating      scraps      on      this      floor      of desolation.    Please    read    your    Bible with     the     Holy     Spirit     only,     always scrutinizing     the     Word     for     modal auxiliary    verbs    added…    little    words seeding   doubt.   These   words,   like   the “may’s”   and   the   “might’s”,   are   usually added    to    the    Greek    verb    when    it comes    to    the    salvation    of    man    and the   unlimited   atonement   of   Christ.   In the   case   of   this   specific   verse…      an added    “may”    appears    in    virtually    all versions   under   Strong’s   #1510…   even “might”   in   one   case   I   know   of.   These words    are    strategically    used    within the   subjunctive   mood…   to   give   rise   to uncertainty.       These      little      woven-in words     are     like     subtle     ‘Pied     Piper’ tunes,    lulling    their    readers    onto    a path     of     sorrow…     of     destruction. Biased       translations       are       running rampant…      to      profess      everlasting damnation.      And   the   only   place   to   do that? Grammar. Seeding   doubt   has   only   one   agenda… to   instil   fear…   knowing   that   the   fearful is   easily   controlled.   Seeding   doubt   is such   an   easy-   and   successful   tool   in this competitive- and insecure world. And   this   is   exactly   the   most   brilliant place    for    the    Adversary    to    play    his tricks…    his    goal    being    to    deceive    a third       of       the       world       population (Christians)…   the   place   where   he   can play       with       GRAMMAR…       at       the translating     hands     of     modern     day scribes.   Oh   how   cunning   he   is…   how successful…      how      scrupulous!      By saying    this,    let    there    be    NO    doubt whatsoever    that    I    am    not    pointing fingers   to   those   who   are   assigned   to do   Biblical   translations,   but   to   the   one assigned    to    deceive    the    world…    the one     Revelation     12:9     talks     about. When   I   say   assigned,   it   goes   without saying   that   God’s   ultimate   Sovereignty determines   everything.   Satan   can   do nothing,     if     it     is     not     assigned     by God…his    Creator.    Please    read    what God   says   in   Romans   9:20 .   Everything and   everyone   is   clay   in   the   hands   of God. So, having said this… Have   you   EVER   thought   of   putting   ALL blame   on   GOD…   and   not   on   Satan? Highly    unlikely.    And    if    you    regard yourself   a   Christian…   you   of   all   people should   know   that   God   is   in   charge   of the    Adversary    (Satan)…    of    everyone and    everything    ( Isaiah    45:7 ).        The Strong’s     word     “evil”     in     this     verse actually    means    “adversity”.    Are    you consistent   in   your   thinking   as   far   as God’s   Sovereignty   is   concerned…      His control   of   all?   Because   if   you   play   with His    Sovereignty    and    acknowledge    it only   when   it   suits   you,   then   there   will be   some   grave   explaining   to   be   done on     the     Lord’s     Day.     And     in     this particular   case…   the   proverbial   “there will    be    hell    to    play”    is    very    much appropriate…   albeit   the   “hell”   being   of NO     eternal     duration     at     all…     like billions   want   to   believe.   The   news   is supposed   to   be   the   best   news   ever for   you…   or   is   it   perhaps   not?      This   is SUCH    a    serious    matter,    that    sugar- coated chatter has no room here. This   is   the   most   pivotal   connection   to make…   grasping   that   all   the   pain   in the    world    is    not    on    the    account    of man,     but     on     the     account     of     our Sovereign   God.   This   is   the   ONLY   way to   make   sense   of   the   chaos   and   pain in   this   world…   the   only   way   of   getting inner   peace…   the   only   way   of   having empathy    with    all    people…    including yourself…     the     only     way     of     inner freedom.   Pain   is   there   for   a   reason, but   the   moment   we   realize   its   role   in God’s   plan   with   us,   it   becomes   much more      bearable…      and      endurance becomes    easier.    Grasping    this    will make   you   realize   that   it   is   not   life   on this     planet     that     counts…     but     the everlasting     life     of     joy     hereafter… awaiting ALL mankind. Then   you   will   know   that   all   the   pain inflicted    upon    you    was    not    on    the account    of    mortal    man,    but    on    the account   of   God.   Then   you   will   know that   previously   you   never   knew   God and     kept     Him     in     a     self-fabricated mould.   Then   you   will   know   that   the pain   you   endure   is   coming   from   the Ultimate    Father    who    disciplines    His child     with     Ultimate     Love     and     not vindictiveness.        He        inflicts        our wounds…   and   He   heals   them   again. We   see   this   in   Job   5:17-18 .   Then   you will      experience      the      liberation      of forgiveness…     no     matter     what     the atrocity    against    you    was.    Then    you will    know    that    the    only    place    to    go with    your    pain    is    to    God’s    breast… where   He   wants   you   to   be…   where   He can   heal   you.   Then   you   will   be   able   to say   like   Stephen   in   Acts   7:60    “Lord,   do not   hold   this   sin   against   them”.      Then you   can   say   like   Jesus   in   Luke   23:34   “Father,   forgive   them,   for   they   do   not know   what   they   are   doing”.      Then   you will    remember    that    God    uses    evil ( Isaiah    45:7 )    for    the    good    ( Romans 8:28 ).    Then    you    will    know    that    God puts     love     in     the     heart     of     man whenever   He   wants   to   ( Ezekiel   36:26 ). Then   you   will   be   able   to   love   ALL   with an   agape   love…   because   you   deeply know   God   ( 1   John   4:7 ).   Then   you   will know   that   agape   love   is   NOT   a   feeling, but    the    refraining    from    deliberately harming       another…       with       words, thoughts     and     acts     alike     ( Romans 13:10 ). But back to grammar… 1 Corinthians 15:28
(There are more examples, such as the above, that I will add at a later stage). Take   note   that   “may”   does   not   appear in   the   above   verse   at   all.   It   is   not   “may be”,   but   simply   “be”.   Let   me   elaborate a    little    on    the    emotion    FEAR.    Doubt paves     the     way     to     insecurity…     and insecurity   to   fear.   And   why   is   fear   the target     of     control?     Because     fear     is addictive.   The   world   runs   on   ‘fear   fuel’ as   most   people   are   subservient   to   this exciting      emotion.      Excitement      and sensation   is   what’s   appealing…   not   a quiet    life    at    all.    No    challenge…    no excitement…   only   ‘boredom’.   Fear   is   a more   attractive   challenge,   because   the adrenaline   rush   it   gives,   prompts   one to       pursue       the       ‘satisfaction       of personally   overcoming’   this   perceived danger. Fear     has     many     manifesting     faces, spreading    out    from    one    origin…    the fear        of        authority…        its        core manifestation   being   rebellion.      Lucifer was    the    first    to    introduce    this    fear- based    rebellion    to    God’s    creation… and    the    ripple    effect    is    still    going stronger    and    stronger.    Cruelty    and violence             exponentially             soar worldwide…       across       all       religious borders.   Subtle   cruelties   and   violence are   just   as   devastating   as   their   graphic counterparts.        So-called        Christian communities    are    not    excluded…    and why?   Because   they   also   run   on   ‘fear- fuel’…    albeit    fear    of    an    ‘everlasting’ hell-fire    continuously    haunting    them. Fear    can    never    ever    have    love    as    a manifestation…       only       deep-seated insecurity   and   hatred   surfacing   ever   so frequently.   Fear   is   all   about   pursuing control…   with   war   upon   war   all   over… be   it   on   a   personal-   and   global   level alike. Nearly     all     ministries     on     the     net proclaim   the   lie   of   eternal   damnation. Do    they    ask    for    donations?    See    for yourself.   In   principle   there   is   nothing wrong    with    receiving    a    living    from preaching   the   Gospel.   The   condition, however,   is   that   the   True   Gospel…   the good   news   of   God…   being   preached. People   are   generous   when   it   comes   to appeasing   messages.   Gullibility   is   fed by   soothing   words…   not   reprimanding ones.    Please    see    2    Timothy    4:3 .    The Truth     is     never     on     the     agenda     of pursuit…    as    it    is    simply    too    painful.      Who   among   the   ‘Christian’   community wants   to   hear   that   there   is   no   eternal damnation?      Hard      to      find.      Why? Because    that    would    mean    to    throw one’s   ‘exclusive   right   to   heaven’   out   the window. Paul    never    asked    money    for    himself ( 2 Corinthians    2:17 ).    He    was    a    free man   to   tell   the   Truth…   since   he   was not   dependant   on   the   favour   of   man. He   told   the   Truth   to   stay   in   the   favour of   God.   See   Galatians   1:10 .   Is   teaching ‘everlasting   damnation’   Biblical?   No,   it isn’t.     Living     off     false     teaching     is missing   the   mark.   See   1   Timothy   6:3-6   and 1 Timothy 6:9-11 .  Something significant about the pastor of one of these “donate” ministries… He     was     approached     by     someone having     had     trouble     around     Isaiah 63:17 .    The    question    posed    was    the origin   of   Lucifer’s   first   desire   for   evil.   It came   as   no   surprise   to   me   that   the pastor       could       not       answer       that question.      And      why?      Because      his “everlasting   hell”   doctrine   does   not   gel with    God    HIMSELF    being    that    origin. So     simple     to     answer     when     one acknowledges     God’s     Sovereignty     in all…   even   when   it   comes   to   evil.   Please see    Isaiah    45:7 .    See…    acknowledging God   being   the   Founder   of   all,   one   has no   problem   making   sense   of   so   much in     the     Bible…     like     ‘sticky’     verses ignorance stumbles against. If    one    knows    the    Absolute    Truth    of Jesus’    unlimited    atonement    for    ALL, then   money   never   comes   into   play… let   alone   into   the   mind.   The   freedom   it gives   is   SO   overwhelming   and   joyful,     that   one   only   wants   to   share   it   with the     whole     world…     for     free…     for “mahala” (in South African slang).   but… back to the kids… If     people     but     knew     the     extent     of damage   this   ridiculous   doctrine   of   an eternal   hell-fire   of   damnation   is   doing to   little   children.   It’s   criminal   to   say   the least!    The    fear    that    this    devastating doctrine   embeds   in   a   child’s   memory, is    so    destructive,    but    they    suffer    in silence…       not       able       to       express themselves   at   that   vulnerable   stage.   It is      a      known      fact      that      fear      has developmental-           and           cognitive implications on little children. Jesus   has   invited   the   little   children   to His    breast    in    Matthew    19:14 ,    saying loud    and    clear    that    the    Kingdom    of heaven   belongs   to   them…   and   those like    them.    Present    tense.        He    talked about    ALL    children,    having    made    no exclusions.   And   please   note…   the   Bible also    says    that    He,    Jesus    Christ    will rescue   all   from   the   ‘fire’   on   the   Day   of His    second    coming    in    1 Corinthians 3:15 .   Please   read   this   verse   carefully. Read    about    the    destruction    of    the inferior         buildings…         but         most importantly…   read   about   the   salvation of   their   builders!   Jesus   will   pull   ALL   out of   the   spiritual   flames   of   His   purifying Fire. Children   are   supposed   to   have   a   care- free   start   in   life…   not   having   to   face such    a    horrific    threat…    introducing God   to   them   as   One   going   to   torture with   an   everlasting   burning   hell   in   the end.    This    is    the    picture    they    get    of God…     and     this     is     exactly     where adrenalin   addiction   starts   already…   at a   vulnerable   age.   The   satisfaction   and ‘power’    of    taking    part    in    one’s    own destiny     is     the     bait…     however     not realizing   the   abomination   this   attitude is   to   God…   the   God   who   gave   His   all- inclusive    grace    through    Christ.    The saddest   of   all   is   the   fact   that   children of    ‘eternal-hell-believing’    parents    are taught    from    small    already    to    regard themselves    as    being    exclusive.    This logically     gives     rise     to     an     arrogant haughtiness    towards    other    kids    who come       from       different       religions… verbally      killing      them      with      their condemning   words…   banning   them   to an ‘eternal hell’. And just to bring in God’s Sovereignty and total control over all… Where   is   the   origin   of   all   the   religions of    the    world?    Satan?    Man?    If    your answer   is   positive   around   either   of   the two,    then    please    think    again    about where      you      stand      around      God’s Sovereignty.    GOD    is    the    Founder    of ALL religions for crying out loud. Does    Paul    not    say    in    Hebrews    12:2   that      Jesus      is      the      Founder      and Perfecter    of    Faith?    Does    he    not    also say   in   this   verse   that   because   of   the immense     joy     that     was     laid     before Jesus,   Jesus   was   willing   to   endure   the unimaginable    suffering    at    the    cross? And    what’s    more…    can    we    for    one moment   think   that   Jesus   was   joyful   for only   a   few…   ‘knowingly’   that   the   horror of   everlasting   torture   awaits   the   rest (as      billions      believe)?      It’s      beyond absurd.   Jesus   is   LOVE.   I   thank   God   for verses   like   this   one   (and   there   are   a myriad       of       them)…       verses       that ”    simply ignore… for obvious reasons. Hebrews 12:2 “fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” - New International Version Since      fire      has      all      to      do      with purification,   Jesus   could   not   wait   to   get beyond    the    purifying    part    to    the    joy part.   He   could   not   wait   to   set   the   fire ablaze…   to   discipline   His   children   unto purity…   like   a   loving   heavenly   Father would   do.      Jesus   is   our   Father    as   well ( Isaiah   9:6 ).   And   this   is   exactly   why   He said    what    He    said    in    the    following verse… Luke 12:49 “I came to cast fire upon the earth, and how I wish it were kindled already!” - Berean Literal Bible Isaiah 9:6 “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” - New International Version Back to the religions of the world… Jesus created all faiths, but will purify all the false faiths to become the perfect and pure Faith… the Faith of the Gospel of Christ. “Perfecter” in this verse also means “finisher”. All will come to completion eventually. God   has   a   plan   with   adversity.   That   is why   He   created   it.   “Why   then   did    He create    adversity    in    the    first    place?”… you   may   ask.   So   that   ALL   mankind   will be   drawn   unto   Christ   and   know   Him and   worship   Him   for   Who   He   is   John 12:32 ).     Even     if     this     would     mean through   pain   and   suffering…   whether in present time… or life hereafter. It is all about knowing the True God! Did   Adam   and   Eve   know   God   and   did they   appreciate   Him   for   who   He   was (is)    and    His    incredible    blessing…    the Garden     of     Eden?     Apparently     not… otherwise    their    departure    from    this place    of    bliss    would    not    have    been necessary.    They    had    one    field    day after   the   other   and   did   not   have   the faintest    idea    of    what    they    had.    God was    constantly    there    in    their    midst. But   God   in   His   wonderful   Plan   would soon     change     that     in     the     Book     of Genesis.    Don’t    we    all    know    that    by nature       we       do       not       appreciate something    good    or    someone    good… until   we   do   not   have   that   something or   someone   in   our   midst   any   more? Adam    and    Eve    were    human    beings just like us. It is all about obedience to the Law of Christ in the New Testament… the Law of righteous FAITH. People    are    people…    grown-ups    and children   alike.   We   need   to   feel   what evil   feels   like   first   before   we   are   able to     opt     for     the     “good”.     The     Bible pertinently       gives       hope       to       the ungodly…   the   unbelievers   who   did   not know    Jesus    Christ.    They    will    get    few stripes    ( Luke    12:48 ).    But    beware    the ones    who    were    exposed    to    the    all- inclusive   Gospel   (Good   News)   of      Jesus Christ,   but   deviated   from   that      path   of glory…    the    path    of    faithfulness…    for selfish    reasons.    Many    stripes    await them   ( Luke   12:47 ).      Did   Jesus   Himself not   say   that   the   first   will   be   last   and the     last     will     be     first?     Please     read Matthew        20:8-16 .        Parables        are powerful      messages…      and      always relevant… even to this day. ‘Everlasting-hell-believing’   people   flock together     at     gatherings     where     they have   the   [pseudo]   assurance   that   they will     escape     this     ‘hell-fire’…     simply because   they   are   made   to   believe   (and relax)   in   their   exclusive   privilege   of   the rite   of   passage   to   heaven   through   the ‘power’   they   have   with   their   own   ‘free will      and      -choice’.      An      exhilarating feeling…    however,    alas…    a    fatal    one. Children    are    taught    that    in    order    to make     it     to     heaven     one     must     do something…      even      when      this      “do something”      means      to      choose      to believe    in    Jesus.    What    they    do    not teach    their    children    is    the    “WHAT” about    Jesus.    The    “WHAT”    about    His death…   the   “WHAT”   faith   around   Jesus Christ.     It’s     all     about     the     MISSING [ignored]   part   that   will   give   them   total freedom    and    joy.    The    part    that    says Jesus    has    done    it    all    already    at    the cross   on   Golgotha…   having   set   the   bill for   sin   for   all   forever.   Kids   will   know from     scratch     that     they     are     good enough…    because    of    what    Jesus    did for   them   AND   the   rest   of   all   the   other kids in the world. But   no…   they   are   programmed   to   put the   focus   on   themselves…   to   achieve… to   demand   a   ‘pat   on   the   back’…   rather than   give   Christ   all   the   glory   for   His total           atonement…           for           HIS achievement.          The          world          is programmed   to   believe   that   its   destiny lies     within     itself.     And     the     obvious result   of   such   a   failing   concept?   Chaos, misery       and       global       feud.       From generation        to        generation        this misconception    is    carried    forward…    a diabolical     cycle     that     can     only     be broken     with     the     Truth…     the     Truth within the Good News of Jesus Christ. To   depict   God   as   One   who   will   forever abandon     ANYONE     in     the     end…     is playing    with    fire…    playing    with    God, who   IS   the   Fire…   the   “lake   of   fire”   in Revelation   21:8 .   It   will   painfully   burn… until   purity   is   achieved.   Correction   is painful…   don’t   we   all   know   this?   God   is a     God     of     painful     discipline…     but ultimately   a   God   of   LOVE.   Promoting Him   as   One   who   will   cause   everlasting torture     to     trillions     in     the     end     is ultimate     slander     and     blasphemy… with   an   immense   implication.   To   think that     the     silly     man-fabricated     ‘free moral      agency’      can      overrule      the ultimate       grace       of       God’s       loving Sovereignty,   is   a   complete   lack   of   logic and   sound   thinking…   and…   lofty      self- service. ‘Christians’     believing     in     this     fallacy, should   start   worrying   about   their   take- on    around    the    ‘everlasting’    part    of their   doctrine   of   an   ‘everlasting   hell’… about   carrying   this   lie   forward.   What does    Jesus    say    in    Luke    17:1-2     about those    letting    another    stumble    [with lies]?    Please    take    a    look.    And    in    the event   of   you   feeling   insulted   reading this,   please   see   it   as   the   ego   at   play… and   a   red   light   going   up   for   you.   To aggressive    Christians    on    the    defence when        confronted        about        their “everlasting-hell”    doctrine…    I    have    a question.   Are   you   defending   yourself… or   are   you   defending   the   Sovereignty of   God?      It’s   clearly   yourself…   isn’t   it? It’s   time   for   people   to   find   out   what the   “lake   of   fire”   is   really   all   about.   It’s time    for    ‘Christians’    to    check    their Bibles    around    the    grammar    applied. This is indeed a warning. But…   it’s   up   to   God   for   you   to   take   it seriously.   Luke   16:22-31    is   a   significant example    when    it    comes    to    warning around   God’s   discipline.   There   is   ONLY one   place   of   safety…   and   that   is   within the   loving   Sovereignty   of   God.   Period. To    stay    within    the    ‘free    will’    myth would   be   seemingly   ‘less   costly’   than to    admit    ‘free    will’    being    a    myth    all along.   Thereby   saving   face   from   being laughing    stock    after    many    years    of advocating    it.    Virtually    all    ‘Christians’ silently    battle    with    this    dilemma    of “free   will”   and   an   “everlasting   hell”   on the   one   hand…   and   retrospectively   the Sovereignty   of   God   and   a   God   of   love on   the   other   hand.   And   this   battle   is kept    being    an    inner    battle…    hidden from the outer world. A   brilliant   illustration   of   this   worldwide phenomenon   is   in   the   fairy   tale   "The Emperor's     New     Clothes"     by     Hans Christian     Andersen…     where     people are     scared     of     appearing     stupid     to others.   The   price   of   vanity,   however… like   that   of   the   emperor…   is   indeed   a costly   one.      It   took   an   innocent   child, who   was   too   young   of   having   a   desire to   keep   up   a   pretense,   to   blurt   out   the emperor’s   nakedness.   On   the   surface a   seemingly   silly   story…   but   in   affect   a story   with   a   powerful   punch   of   reality. By   nature   children   are   so   wonderfully humble   and   honest…   no   wonder   Jesus invited   them   into   His   arms   ( Matthew 19:14 )…    into    His    Kingdom    ( Matthew 18:3 ).     It     was     the     one     little     child amongst    many    adults    in    Andersen’s story   who   was   the   brave   one…   the   one with     courage…     not     the     hordes     of grown-ups.     And     why?     Because     the little   child   has   not   been   programmed with   lies   by   egoistic-motivated   grown- ups (yet). What    did    God    say    in    Nahum    1:12   about   the   many?   What   did   He   say   in Matthew   7:22    about   the   many?   What did   God   say   in   Revelation   1:7    about   all peoples    on    earth…    the    many?    What did   God   say   in   Matthew   7:13    about   the many?    The    little    child    is    the    brave one…   the   one   with   courage…   the   one who   will   be   spared   the   “lake   of   fire”   in Revelation       21:8 …       as       not       being amongst      the      “cowardly”      (Strong’s #1169)   and   the   “liars”   (Strong’s#5571) in    this    verse.    Interest    to    notice    the way-back   date   this   fairy   tale   originates from…   back   in   1335   already.      This   just goes   to   show   that   what   the   Bible   says in   Ecclesiastes   1:9 ,   is   still   relevant...   the world    in    the    late    middle    age    days being    the    same    as    the    world    today. Nothing      has      changed…      especially when   it   comes   to   the   vanity   of   man. God    can    do    anything…    even    using modern     day     fairy     tales     with     deep meanings…   modern   day   parables   for that matter. So-called   ‘free   will’   is   what   has   put   this world       in       such       a       mess.       Total submission   to   God   is   for   the   brave… not          the          faint-hearted.          Total submission    is    what    God    wants    from every   single   one   ever   born…   and   it   is exactly   what   He   intended   to   happen… before    the    foundation    of    the    earth already. May God bless you and give you a discerning mind… and a searching heart.
