And, yes, the cross was needed to pay a ransom. Without the birth, death and bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ, we have nothing except an eternity in everlasting hell to look forward to. But 'thanks to Calvary' we all have that chance. Not everyone Will accept -- but everyone Does have that opportunity. That's why we are told to go unto all peoples and share the gospel unto salvation with all.
John 3:16 "For God so loved the World -- everyone in it -- that who-so-ever believeth -- (who so ever will may come). That people are not puppets -- we have choices.
God is the Only One who knows who will do what and when. He, alone, knows who His chosen ones are. We don't. So - for Our benefit -- the 'world' is Everyone -- who-so-ever Also means 'anyone' as far as we're concerned.
Consider this, Paul was instructing people of Co-los'se which have been instructed in the Faith, and have excepted our Lord, and now they are being enticed to return to the Pagan deities they once worshiped, their Family, their co-worker's, everyone around them that have not received Salvation! People will try to lure you into their way, So Paul tell's them, Do not let anyone Judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious Festal, a new moon celebration or a Sabbath day. But the Body of Christ, As Moses Judged the differences, among the Israelite's, we are to judge among our body, or should I say His Body of believer's. 17- and then He [Paul] States, These are a Shadow of thing's to Come. The reality is however, that Our Savior did fulfill some of the Shadow's to come, He has not fulfilled all the Shadow's as yet ! If all the Shadow's were fulfilled we would be in the Kingdom! And by the way Our Savior is the Way, the Reality , and the Life
It was reported on Fox News that the poppy fields would be burnt down. I can not find the exact clip but Geraldo Rivera was reporting I believe. They were going to destroy them and rebuild with peppers,... They had a US Marine being interviewed on the skit.
To the Church in Laodicea
Rev 3:14 “And to the angel of the church in Laodicea write: ‘The words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of God's creation.
Rev 3:15 “‘I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot!
Rev 3:16 So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.
Rev 3:17 For you say, I am rich, I have prospered, and I need nothing, not realizing that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked.
Rev 3:18 I counsel you to buy from me gold refined by fire, so that you may be rich, and white garments so that you may clothe yourself and the shame of your nakedness may not be seen, and salve to anoint your eyes, so that you may see.
Rev 3:19 Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline, so be zealous and repent.
Rev 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.
Rev 3:21 The one who conquers, I will grant him to sit with me on my throne, as I also conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne.
Rev 3:22 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’” ESV
Hmmmmm, If you can't accept or reject salvation then the letters to the 7 churches is a waste of pen and paper since once you are chosen you can't do anything to become unchosen; and if you are not chosen then it sucks to be you. Sounds like the once saved always saved argument all over again.
