Good News due to Bad News First

The Point of Theology is to ‘understand’ the ‘all things’ as God’s Will is revealed to triumph over evil with regards to Judgment & Salvation:
“Evil men understand not judgment: but they that seek the LORD understand all things.” (Proverbs 28:5)
“Whoso keepeth the commandment shall feel no evil thing: and a wise man’s heart discerneth both time and judgment.
Because to every purpose there is time and judgment, therefore the misery of man is great upon him.” (Ecclesiastes 8:5 – 6)
(i) Bad News for All
All of us are wrong in “thoughts, words & actions” (Romans 3:3, Romans 3:19, Romans 3:23)
(ii) Good News for believers first
Despite our sins, some of us ‘who are reconciled to Him even now’ will be ‘saved’ (a Free Gift) by His Mercy in the coming age through believing in Him ‘first’ being heirs of His Kingdom as a reward for “suffering with Him” as well (Colossians 1:21, Romans 9:15, Titus 3:5, Romans 10:9 – 11, 1 Corinthians 1:21, Romans 8:17, Ephesians 1:11, 2 Thessalonians 1:5)
(iii) Bad News for unbelievers first
The rest, not being reconciled yet due to their unbelief primarily will be judged & punished into the coming “age” (for men) first accordingly as “they did first to others” & “these die in their sins” too remaining a “liar, etc.” And will “not” inherit the kingdom of God as His sons (John 3:18, John 16:9, John 8:24, Revelation 21:8, Isaiah 3:11, Matthew 25:46, 2 Thessalonians 1:6 – 9, 1 Corinthians 6:9 – 10)
(iv) Secret: Good News for All Eventually
The Mystery or Secret of His Will part:
Judgment is not the End but only ‘equal’ in Hell ‘matching the cruelty, Lawlessness & Sin which they did first’ till the ‘last penny’ to the ‘age’ for men & ‘ages’ for the Devils and when these are being reconciled, the sins of the World will not be counted against them anymore & God’s Mercy applies to All freely through the Faith OF Jesus Christ causing Salvation to the Whole World & these may not be heirs of the kingdom as sons being least in the heavens and God becomes “all in all” eventually in the “End” (1 Corinthians 14:38, Matthew 7:21 – 23, Luke 12:47 – 48, Matthew 5:26, Matthew 25:46, Revelation 20:10, James 2:13, 1 Peter 4:5 – 6, Titus 2:11, 1 Timothy 2:4, 1 Timothy 4:10, 1 Timothy 2:6, Romans 11:32, 1 John 2:2, Romans 11:15, 2 Corinthians 5:19, Acts 3:21, Revelation 21:5, Romans 8:20 – 21, Ephesians 1:8 – 10, Colossians 1:16, 20, 26, Romans 3:22, 1 John 4:14, John 4:42, Matthew 5:19, 1 Corinthians 15:22 – 28)
Conclusion for Theology
“The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah.” (Psalm 9:16)
“The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love.” (1 John 4:8)
When we remain in “punishment” (Hell & Judgment), we will be in “fear” and this fear is only removed when we are “saved” and ‘Perfect Love’ casts out ‘all fears’ eventually:
“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love.” (1 John 4:18)
The Definition of Love is tied up to “obeying” God’s Commands:
“For this is the love of God, that we keep (obey) His commandments; and His commandments are not burdensome.” (1 John 5:3)
Anyone teaching ‘not’ to obey His Commands are ‘liars’:
“If anyone says, “I know Him,” but does not keep (obey) His commandments, he is a liar, and the truth is not in him.” (1 John 2:4)
“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” (Proverbs 9:10)
“but let him who boasts boast of this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the LORD who exercises lovingkindness, justice and righteousness on earth; for I delight in these things,” declares the LORD.” (Jeremiah 9:24)
Let us be “wise” and not miss out on His Glory which is beyond what this World has to offer:
“For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.” (Romans 8:18)
“And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars to the age and ever (permanently).” (Daniel 12:3)
Here’s an intriguing question:
“Why do you call Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say?” – Lord Jesus Christ (Luke 6:46)
Please ponder ‘deeply’ the verse above with Matthew 7:21 – 23, 1 Corinthians 14:37 and 1 Corinthians 14:38.
