The Whole World is Saved

Here is a concept that is often talked about, but we find that there is absolutely no truth and reality to it at all, scripture is very silent on this subject, well except on this tiny unique situation where Paul puts it as “Alive and remain,” well I guess that does make it ‘the whole world’ as there are no other people living except for this small group, the dead in trespasses and sins are still in their graves, they have yet another 1000years to sleep on, those alive and sinful were slain at Jesus’ Return by the brightness of the glory of God and lay dead scattered all over the surface of the earth, struck dead instantly exactly where they stood.  2 Thessalonians 2:8 “And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:” Jeremiah 25:33 “And the slain of the LORD shall be at that day from [one] end of the earth even unto the [other] end of the earth: they shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor buried; they shall be dung upon the ground.”  Revelation 6:16-17 “And said to the mountains and rocks, fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:  For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?”    

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 “But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep [dead in the graveyard], that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.  For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.  For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive [and] remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.  For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:  Then we which are alive [and] remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.  Wherefore comfort one another with these words.”

Now those who had been martyred and died while actively working in God’s Vineyard, preaching the very, very last messages of hope just right before Jesus returns, are part of the very few in this uniquely special resurrection, right before the main resurrection, just in time to see Jesus’ return in power and glory, just like at Calvary, Matthew 27:52-53 “And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, and came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.  These few mockers and doubters have to now eat their words, Matthew 26:63-64 “But Jesus held his peace. And the high priest answered and said unto him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God.  Jesus saith unto him, thou hast said: nevertheless, I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.”  Jesus tells the High Priest that after he has died and been buried, he will be resurrected just in time to see Jesus come in his Kingly Glory, and to die a second time killed by the brightness of his coming, only to be resurrected again a thousand years later, to see Jesus and his Father, and all the redeemed of the earth, and then to die a third time and this time to be turned to ashes, never more to be, what a shame that his bigotry and prejudice closed the door to salvation, and there are many others who close the same door to salvation with the same such attitude.   

Back to the beginning, “The Whole World is Saved,” well if you are one of the eight persons within Noah’s Ark, then yes, for in their days, as from the whole world only eight prepare themselves and entered in, well in our days, if you are part of the 144,000, then the answer is a resounding “Yes,” as this group are the only people on planet earth who are ‘alive and remain,’ the ‘Dead in Christ,’ have just been resurrected and angels are currently escorting them up to Jesus in the clouds watched by the ‘Alive and remain,’  they are alive, and they remain on earth, well for a few seconds more, then Jesus calls them to come up and to join the freshly resurrected, so now we have fully the concept of ‘Redeemed of the Earth,’ “The Whole World is Saved.”  Because at this point of time, for the very first time, the redeemed of the earth are all here gathered as a vast group, the ‘Alive and remain,’ as well as the freshly resurrected ones, they are now together starting the ‘Exodus’ to the ‘Promised Land,’ Heaven.

Revelation 7:4 “And I heard the number of them which were sealed: [and there were] sealed an hundred [and] forty [and] four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.”  In Hebrew, a name has a meaning, Juda – Excellence, Praise, Reuben – Behold a son, Gad – Fortune, Good Luck, Aser – Blessed, Naphtali – Struggling, Wrestling, Manasseh – To Forget, Simeon – To Hear, Levi – United, Joined, Issachar – His reward will come, Zebulon – Dwelling in Honour, Joseph – Jehovah shall add, Benjamin – Son of my right hand.   Now to read just the meanings, we get this concept;

To Jesus be all Excellence, Praise, and All shall Behold a Son, which is Fortune, Good Luck, and Blessed, though he had been Struggling, Wrestling, victory helps him To Forget, praise To Hear, finally God’s children are United, Joined, and His reward will come, they will be Dwelling in Honour, and Jehovah shall add, this is the Son of my right hand.   

Galatians 3:29 “And if ye [be] Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”  So, if you belong to Jesus Christ, the Creator of Heaven and Earth, who is the lamb of God, born of a virgin, who died on calvary and rose again the third day, who now sits on his Father’s Throne, then you are Jewish, and go to live in the Jewish Capital of New Jerusalem, a child of father Abraham, a member of one of his twelve tribes, a citizen of Heaven.  Quote; “God promised to Abraham, and his seed after him, that they should have possessions and lands, and yet they were only strangers and sojourners. The inheritance and lands that are to be given not only to Abraham but to the children of Abraham will not be until after this earth is purified. Abraham will then receive the title to his farm, his possessions; and the children of Abraham will have a title to their possessions. Every one of us should constantly bear in mind that this earth is not our dwelling place, but that we are to have an inheritance in the earth made new. The destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah symbolizes to us how this world will be destroyed by fire. It is not safe for any one of us to build our hopes in this life. We want first to seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness.” {CTr Ch3} Matthew 5:5 “Blessed [are] the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.”  So we find that “The Whole World is Saved,”  yes, well each and every meek person, that is who are ‘Alive and Remain’ when Jesus comes to Exodus his kids back home to his place, both the freshly resurrected ones and the ‘Alive and Remain,’ so repent and be converted to become part of the redeemed of the Earth.
