Was the Cross for ALL Mankind (even unbelievers)?

There are SO MANY verses that are so good that it is IMPOSSIBLE for our natural human mind to believe.  This is because they are spiritual truths outside the natural, physical realm that the natural mind can’t see.  Thus, we rarely hear them taught or shared.  This can be frustrating because these are verses and powerful truths the world NEEDS to HEAR and SEE! Everyone is so hungry be loved and accepted by God and others.  These are two foundational needs for all humans.  Is it finally time our eyes are opened to these most powerful verses?  Is it time we begin allowing the truth to live through us to all those around us?

Check these powerful verses out and think about what they are saying.  If they weren’t God’s very Word, we would write them off as “New Age”!

Also, God isn’t trying to trick us here.  Remember, he wants us to believe like a “simple child”.

For the love of Christ controls us, having concluded this, that one died for all, therefore all died  2 Corinthians 5:14

So, look at 2 Corinthians 5:14 above and ask yourself “who did Christ die for”?   Don’t know?  See 1 John 2:2, Romans 5:8, 1 Peter 3:18, 1 John 4:10

Once you have that answer, ask yourself “who died with him”?  Don’t worry if you can’t understand HOW that can be.  Let God work on that later.  That’s HIS job.

Now, look at this one.  This is one that is rarely taught.

For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free, and we were all made to drink of one Spirit 1 Corinthians 12:13

This verse above is one that man’s mind will rationalize away because it can’t comprehend it.  This mind uses the false doctrine of “free will” to disbelieve this verse.  Looking at 1 Cor 12:13 above, ask yourself “Who was baptized into ONE body?”  and then “Was our free will able to stop this from happening?”  Sure doesn’t sound like it, does it? God is opening our eyes to the false doctrine of free will these days.  Man’s soul appears to have free will, but these things that God is talking about are happening in man’s SPIRIT!  Man’s spirit is attached to the locomotive of Christ in a realm behind the veil that man’s soul has NO access to.  Man’s soul is simply the caboose on the train.  It must go where God’s “engine” takes him.

Now, we can begin to see the powerful thing that occurred at the cross that was ETERNAL and OUTSIDE of time and man’s soulish “free” will.  Rarely do we ever hear it taught that the Gospel was an ETERNAL Gospel outside of all space and time. That’s what scripture teaches.

And I saw another angel flying in midheaven, having an eternal gospel to preach to those who live on the earth, and to every nation and tribe and tongue and people  Revelation 14:6

Wow, did you see that in Revelation 14:6 above?  First, it’s an ETERNAL gospel that is for ALL times and AGES!  Next, notice it is an ANGEL that is preaching the message to ALL people.  An Angel can actually tell ALL people at ONE time.  Now, do we understand why we don’t have to be burdened with the GUILT of having to “go to the ends of the Earth” to preach the Good news?  God’s got us covered.  The true work he does in the hidden realm of the Spirit.  Man is the caboose who is along for the ride.  Here’s another powerful verse telling us about the ETERNAL redemption that Christ obtained for ALL mankind of ALL ages and ALL times.

and not through the blood of goats and calves, but through His own blood, He entered the holy place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption Hebrews 9:12

Look at Hebrews 9:12 above and ask yourself “who did Christ enter the Holy place for?”  Then, “what kind of redemption did HE obtain for those people?”  Again, this is all HIDDEN from man’s view.  Man thinks he does something.  He doesn’t.  He just rides along and God drives.  If man does anything, he will boast.  God gets all the credit.  The score is God 1 Bazillion , man 0.

No go above and look at 2 Corinthians 5:14 and 1 Corinthians 12:13 again.  Remember how these verses said that all mankind died with Christ and all were made to drink of one Spirit?  Now, let’s look at another awesome verse.

But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit  1 Corinthians 6:17 KJV

Do you see why scripture says there is ONE body and ONE spirit?  Ephesians 4:4  Now, we may not YET see this because in this world yet we are still “divided” in natural bodies and feel separate, but just because we can’t see it doesn’t mean it’s not true.

Here is one monster of a promise that tells us so many amazing things that occurred in the true realm of the Spirit at the cross.  If you haven’t seen my writing on the true meaning of “gentiles” and “Jews”, you may want to do a search on this site and read it.  Also, remember, man doesn’t affect or change truth.  He can only “experience” it.  You will be amazed at what this is saying below.

Therefore remember that formerly you, the Gentiles in the flesh, who are called “Uncircumcision” by the so-called “Circumcision,” which is performed in the flesh by human hands— 12 remember that you were at that time separate from Christ, excluded from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. 13 But now in Christ Jesus you who formerly were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. 14 For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall, 15 by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that in Himself He might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace, 16 and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross, by it having put to death the enmity. 17 And He came and preached peace to you who were far away, and peace to those who were near; 18 for through Him we both have our access in one Spirit to the Father. 19 So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and are of God’s household, 20 having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the corner stone, 21 in whom the whole building, being fitted together, is growing into a holy temple in the Lord, 22 in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling of God in the Spirit.  Ephesians 2:11-22 NASB

My friend, I pray you would spend some time to ponder these most powerful and most FABULOUS words!  These have NOTHING TO DO with ANY RELIGION or any religious activity.  “Religion” is of the SOUL and is FALSE!  Religion and religious activity is man on the caboose thinking he is pulling the train!  God is driving the train in the invisible realm of THE SPIRIT with a MILLION powerful locomotives.

Look at the last 3 words of those verses again.  “in the Spirit”.  Those are three words you DON’T WANT TO MISS!  Man lives and exists in the soul realm and is completely veiled and BLIND to the Spirit.  God has done all these things BEHIND THE SCENES in the Spirit.  Look at all the tenses of the verbs.  They are all past tense or present tense and are all HIS work.  One final note, when you read scripture get a very good translation that is as close to the original words as possible or a “literal” translation such as King James or New American Standard.  Many other translations will change the words so it makes it look like YOU have to do the work.  No my friend.  The work IS FINISHED!

Let’s celebrate!

God bless.

Duane
