CHRIST IS VICTORIOUS

Let EVERYTHING that has breath praise the Lord!” Psalm 150:6

What could be clearer?! This last verse of the last psalm points to the reconciliation and restoration of ALL!

Gregory of Nyasa wrote, “Such is the meaning of this final psalm, in which, after the complete abolition of sin, praise shall be rising to God, which praise shall contain (implied) our being incapable of turning to sin, when every created being shall be harmonized into one choir; and when, like a cymbal, the reasonable creation, and that which is now severed by sin, shall pour forth a pleasing strain, due to mutual harmony. Then comes the praise of every spirit forever abounding with increase into eternity.”

And…

Scripture says, ALL condemned/ALL saved (1 Cor. 15:22). Religion says, ALL condemned/FEW saved. This doctrine supersedes God’s words. Thus religion makes Adam more powerful than Christ. NOT SO!! Christ is the Saviour of the world! He is the Lamb who took away the sin of the world! It is CHRIST who is victorious, not sin, the devil, or man. God’s ultimate purpose of “the reconciliation of mankind” will be accomplished. Amen

ALL is of God…

It is GOD who saves…

It is God who calls…

It is God who designates…

It is God who purposes…

It is God who graces…

For those who say that God “desires” men to be saved, but each one must choose for himself, there is this to say: For Deity, “desire” is NOT a wish. God has always worked from the basis of “intent to achieve” that which He purposed. All the infinite resources of the Sovereign of the universe are employed to achieve that which lies at the epicenter of all that will be accomplished, every knee bowing and every tongue declaring (NOT confessing, as if to finally admit to it, just before being damned) to the glory of God the Father!

Amen!
