Saviour of All Fellowship
Dear Friends in Faith,
For over fifty years teaching and fellowship centered upon Pauls evangel of transcendent grace and the truth of the reconciliation of all through the blood of Christs cross was actively carried on in Baldwin, Michigan at the little chapel on the corner of Fourth Street and Maple. This has come to an end, at least for now, with the sale of the chapel and parsonage there. Yet the testimony continues through many of our readers and others who enjoyed the conferences and many meetings there in years past. We want to thank Chuck Johnson especially for taking on the sad task of handling these sales and distributing the funds to other similar ministries including our own.
On a message board on the internet Tony posts these thoughts:
Was Jesus a Liar or do we make Him one? Jesus said: And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all (men) unto me (John 12:32 KJV).
Was He lifted up from the earth? And if so, what did He say WILL happen if He was? Do we see all drawn to Him in this life? No. Do we see all drawn to Him during the 1000 year reign to come? No. Some go to Gehenna. Do we see all drawn to Him during the New earth age in Revelation? No. Some go to the second death. So when will all be drawn to Him? It must occur when death is finally abolished, all are made alive, subjected to Christ and God is All in all . . . not just All in some (see 1 Corinthians 15:22-28; Phil.2:8-11; Romans 5:18,19; Col.1:20; Eph.1:10 to name a few.) Jesus is not a liar. Dont you make Him one by what you teach.
Here are some interesting replies he got from the above with his further reply:
One replied: He may call all men, but not all men will call on Him.
Tonys reply: 1 Corinthians 15:22-28 and Philippians 2:8-11 and Colossians 1:20 and Ephesians 1:20 prove that in the future all will come to Him. Many are called but few are chosen does not say that few choose.
Dan replied: Agreed, ALL will come to Him, to be judged as righteous or unrighteous. (Romans 2:16) Either to enter into the kingdom of the heaven or into the kingdom of the devil. No in-between point; no resting place; no 1000 years to make up your mind.
To which Tony replied: Dear Dan, that is not what those specific scriptures say. God is going to be ALL IN ALL. Not All in some. Romans 5:18,19 says there is coming a day when all mankind will be made righteous. Entering into the kingdom is only for the 1000 year reign and the new earth age. The Scriptures I quoted come after them.
Jacqueline commented thus: Acts 2:21And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. It doesnt get any clearer than this!
Tonys reply: Read Philippians 2:9-11. All mankind will acclaim that Jesus Christ is Lord. 1 Corinthians 12:3 says that no one is able to say that Jesus is Lord except by holy spirit. This is when God is All in all for they will be filled with holy spirit.
We are looking forward to the conference in Willard, Ohio, June 13-15.
Yours in Gods Grace,
Dean Hough and Tony Nungesser
