“For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men,” (Titus 2:11, NASB)
“Who [God our Saviour] will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.” (1 Timothy 2:4, KJV)
Here’s a Verse ‘speaking of afterlife reconciliation after afterlife Judgment of being banished from Him’ (as the context of ‘die’ is mentioned in verse below):
“For we will surely die and are like water spilled on the ground which cannot be gathered up again. Yet God does not take away life, but plans ways so that the banished one will not be cast out from him.” – Wise Woman of Tekoa (2 Samuel 14:14, NASB)
This is not an opinion but is endorsed by His Word (as ‘known knowledge regarding Him’) as Scripture first calls this ‘woman from Tekoa’ as “wise” (which approves her words of wisdom spoken to ‘king David himself’), ‘in verse below:
“So Joab sent to Tekoa and brought a wise woman from there and said to her, “Please pretend to be a mourner, and put on mourning garments now, and do not anoint yourself with oil, but be like a woman who has been mourning for the dead many days;” (2 Samuel 14:2, NASB)
The words which ‘Joab put into her’ (2 Samuel 14:3) relates to the fact that ‘Joab didn’t want reconciliation between king David and his evil son Absalom’ (2 Samuel 14:1, 2 Samuel 14:3) and ‘even killed Absalom later’ (2 Samuel 18:14). So, Joab was trying to use the ‘wise woman of Tekoa’ to ‘change king David’s mind regarding Absalom’ to ‘kill his son’.
Did the Wise woman of Tekoa fall prey into Joab’s evil plot?
No! Please read the verse below to understand that ‘she chose to speak the truth of Reconciliation even in the Context of ‘God Reconciling in the Afterlife’ to ‘persuade king David to continue pursuing reconciliation toward his son Absalom on earth’ —-> even though her own son’s life and her own life was threatened by Joab (2 Samuel 14:16):
“The woman said, “Why then have you planned such a thing against the people of God? For in speaking this word the king is as one who is guilty, in that the king does not bring back his banished one.” (2 Samuel 14:13, NASB)
The ‘wise woman’ of Tekoa did NOT follow or fall into Joab’s evil plan of making her to ‘speak falsehood’ (implied by 2 Samuel 14:3) but rather chose to speak the “truth” (as 2 Samuel 14:14, 2 Samuel 14:15 – 17 too) mentions even ‘revealing Joab’s evil plot to king David himself’ (in 2 Samuel 14:19 – 20 as described below). Yes, king David was ‘not deceived’:
“So the king said, “Is the hand of Joab with you in all this?” And the woman replied, “As your soul lives, my lord the king, no one can turn to the right or to the left from anything that my lord the king has spoken. Indeed, it was your servant Joab who commanded me, and it was he who put all these words in the mouth of your maidservant;
in order to change the appearance of things your servant Joab has done this thing. But my lord is wise, like the wisdom of the angel of God, to know all that is in the earth.”” (2 Samuel 14:19 – 20, NASB)
Can we see it?
Are we able to “understand”?
Even our ‘unbelief’ is ‘fulfilling Scripture too’ (as the message of the Reconciliation of All things only came to Light in the Gospel, e.g. Colossians 1:20 with the definition of Colossians 1:16 – part of the Gospel):
“Look among the nations! Observe! Be astonished! Wonder! Because I am doing something in your days– You would not believe if you were told.” (Habakkuk 1:5, NASB)
Regardless of ‘our belief’ or ‘unbelief’, everything that God Willed (e.g. the Reconciliation or All, or the Restoration of All things, Acts 3:21 or the Reconciliation of the World, 2 Corinthians 5:19, or God making All things New, Revelation 21:5 or making Everything Beautiful, Ecclesiastes 3:11) will ‘come to pass’ eventually (in its ‘own appointed times’, 1 Timothy 2:6 too):
“For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the Faith of God without effect?
God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That Thou [God] mightest be justified in Thy sayings, and mightest overcome when Thou art judged.” (Romans 3:3 – 4, KJV)
“For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” (Habakkuk 2:3, NASB)
Is our “attitude” like the wise woman of Tekoa or like Joab?
Here’s an unrelated but nevertheless an interesting look at the English Alphabets regarding some important English words (which in principle agrees to the verses quoted, i.e. “right attitude” is ‘most important’ especially in ‘Speaking the Truth about God’s Theology, e.g. His Reconciliation in the Afterlife too’ in order to be “Wise”, can you see this implied message in Scripture?):
Think about the letters of the alphabet (A-Z) containing 26 letters right? Well when you correspond each letter with a number, you get this:
A=1 B=2 C=3 D=4 E=5 F=6 G=7 H=8 I=9 J=10 K=11 L=12 M=13 N=14
O=15 P=16 Q=17 R=18 S=19 T=20 U=21 V=22 W=23 X=24 Y=25 Z=26
So…add the numbers that correspond with each letter, and look what you get! Pretty interesting huh?
