Son of Man – Seeks (Finds) and Saves the Lost (Destroyed)

How about these Verses?


“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.” – Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 7:13 – 14, NASB)


A Brief Explanation:

Few find ‘the narrow way’ in this life. The rest will be “destroyed” in afterlife Judgment due to their own sins first (John 8:24) which will “correct them in afterlife Judgment eventually” (Principle: Jeremiah 2:19 with Ezekiel 20:43, Ezekiel 36:31).


So, for the rest He finds them (instead of they finding the ‘narrow path’ in this life) since the Son of Man has come to Seek and Save the “lost” (“destroyed”, meaning in Greek too, e. g. Matthew 18:11).




“Thou turnest man to DESTRUCTION; and sayest, RETURN, ye children of men” (Psalm 90:3, KJV)


RESTORING something which has undergone Divine Judgment in “eternal [more accurately age-during] fire” is what the RESTORATION of ALL [Created] things means as well in such cases (Acts 3:21) as the infamous case of Sodom proves too in Verses below:


(i) Sodom suffers the Vengeance of “eternal [more accurately age-during] fire” into afterlife Judgment first


“just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities around them, since they in the same way as these indulged in gross immorality and went after strange flesh, are exhibited as an example in undergoing the punishment of ETERNAL FIRE .” (Jude 1:7, NASB)


(ii) Sodom Prophesied to be “Restored” later


“‘However, I will RESTORE the fortunes of Sodom and her daughters and of Samaria and her daughters, and your fortunes along with them,” – God (Ezekiel 16:53, NIV)


God doesn’t Change from being a God Who brings back those He “banished” (i. e. those cast out in afterlife punishments after they die) so that they “don’t remain banished (in the afterlife from Him)” as the ancient Verse below mentions too:


“We will certainly DIE and be like water poured out on the ground, which can’t be recovered. But God would not take away a life; He would devise plans so that the one banished from him does NOT REMAIN BANISHED.” (2 Samuel 14:14, CSB)




“whom indeed it behooves heaven to receive until the TIMES of RESTORATION of ALL [Created] things, of which God spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from the age.” (Acts 3:21, BLB)
