“Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.” (1 Timothy 2:4, KJV)
“For it is for this we labor and strive, because we have fixed our hope on the living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of believers.” (1 Timothy 4:10, NASB)
Proving that God will save all men (from Hell even, Romans 5:18 – 19, 1 Corinthians 15:21 – 22) when His Mercy Triumphs over (and ends even if it’s the eternal Hell sentence, cancelling it too eventually as mentioned as possible in Isaiah 28:18 itself against the common objection as mentioned in Isaiah 28:15 – please also note that all men & believers are distinguished in 1 Timothy 4:10 itself):
“For judgment will be merciless to one who has shown no mercy; mercy triumphs over judgment.” (James 2:13, NASB)
(a) Example: Judgment in ‘Eternal’ hell part
“Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with Death, and with HELL are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:” (Isaiah 28:15, KJV)
“Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.” (Isaiah 28:17, KJV)
(b) Mercy Triumphing Over and ENDING (or CANCELLING) the ‘Eternal Hell’ Sentence part by God ONLY after the CornerStone (or Lord Jesus Christ is Revealed First, as Prophesied in Isaiah 28:16 in the immediate Consecutive Verses proving Context Irrefutably here in regards to this Topic):
“Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.” (Isaiah 28:16, KJV)
“And your covenant with Death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with HELL shall NOT stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.” (Isaiah 28:18, KJV)
Yes, Mercy triumphs and ends Judgment after ‘Judgment with no Mercy is endured first as Jamed 2:13 specifies this order clearly’ agreeing to these Verses Perfectly as it is Prophesied Regarding Christ the CornerStone in Doing this ‘Strange Work’ (Isaiah 28:21) across the ‘Whole Earth too’ (Isaiah 28:22) beyond the punishment for Ephraim only (Isaiah 28:1 – 3).
Judgment first, yes (Isaiah 28:15, Isaiah 28:17) but thereafter through the CornerStone (Christ, Isaiah 28:16) this same Mercy which Cancels Hell (Isaiah 28:18, James 2:13) is Promised to “All” eventually (Romans 11:32) which includes both the “obedient and the disobedient” (Romans 11:30 – 31) and the ‘enemies of the Gospel too being Beloved’ (Romans 11:28) which is irrevocable (Romans 11:29) as the context of Scripture causes “All Israel to be Saved” (Romans 11:26) which echoes a similar salvation toward the “Gentiles” (Romans 11:12) in fulness too (Romans 11:25) and the ‘Reconciliation of the World’ as well (Romans 11:15) till in the “End” (1 Corinthians 15:24) —> skipping details, for example the Gospel preached to the dead, they being Judged first and thereafter their spirit lives to God eventually (1 Peter 4:5 – 6) —-> causes God to be ALL in All creation in the End (1 Corinthians 15:28, Colossians 1:20) being the “children of God” when this happens (Romans 8:20 – 21).
As He Himself Declared Majestically regarding Saving ALL MEN after Resurrecting to Heaven in Verse below:
“And I, when I am Lifted Up from the earth, will draw all men to Myself.” – Lord Jesus Christ (John 12:32, BSB)
Lifted Up = Resurrected to Heaven (which is signified by His Death on His Cross which must happen first as John 12:33 mentions too).
Causing both the “command keeper” (obedient ones) and the “command breakers” (disobedient ones) to be ‘greatest or least’ respectively after entering into the “Kingdom of the Heavens” eventually by His Great Mercy making sense of ALL Men being SAVED as Prophesied in Verses such as 1 Timothy 2:4 and 1 Timothy 4:10 which will come to Pass (or be a “Testimony” in its own Divine Times for this, 1 Timothy 2:6) all as it is WRITTEN agreeing Beautifully with His Own Blessed Words confirming all this in Verse below too in that ‘all men’ (command keeper & breakers) will be “in the kingdom of the heavens” eventually due to His Saving Act:
“Whoever then shall break one of the least of these commandments and shall teach others the same, he will be called least in the kingdom of the heavens; but whoever shall keep and shall teach them, he will be called great in the kingdom of the heavens.” – Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 5:19, NASB)
Peace to you
