Further, the common misunderstanding that the “unbelief” of the (hardened) “Jews” may cause God’s Will not to be done through His Faithfulness is false.
Fact is, God’s Will will be done by Him despite unbelief and is unaffected by it in the end as the “verses” below (not opinions) clearly state:
“What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision?
Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God.
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 mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when Thou art judged.” (Romans 3:1 – 4)
The above is a “conclusion” (or general verse discussing “unbelief” of all hardened Jews, implied). To quote a ‘temporal’ age-during punishment “intermediate process” verse regarding unbelief to quote conclusions regarding unbelief (e.g. Matthew 25:46) is clearly a common false way of interpreting Scripture.
Please also notice carefully that “every man is a liar” But “God is true” is the answer in verse 4 above is the Scriptural answer to the question of “can unbelief make God’s Faithfulness not to be fulfilled?” in verse 3.
This means so clearly in verses quoted above that to say or imply
the following —-> “God faithfulness or will cannot be done due to unbelief” —-> is what makes “every man a liar” —> simply because every man has either the unbelief itself making them liars or not believing “fully” (100% perfect faith – which none of us have except the ‘perfect faith of Christ) that ‘God is able to do His Will despite all these unbelief’.
Here’s a “faith of Christ” (not ‘in Christ’ as commonly erred in translation too) verse which beautifully describes Christ’s Perfect faith alone (and not our imperfect faiths) with regard to “Salvation” agrees to all these and ‘giving Glory to God alone’:
“having known also that a man is not declared righteous by works of law, if not through the faith of Jesus Christ, also we in Christ Jesus did believe, that we might be declared righteous by the faith of Christ, and not by works of law, wherefore declared righteous by works of law shall be no flesh.'” (Galatians 2:16, YLT)
It’s simple really:
We are Saved by the “faith of Christ” (Christ’s Perfect Faith).
The believer’s “faith in Christ” exists and through it makes us a recipient of this Hope of His Salvation “on earth itself”.
In other words, “our faith in Christ” is believing that we are “saved” by the Perfect “Faith of Christ” in fulfilling God’s Will (e.g. dying according to Scriptures, being raised on the third day —> all other verses as revealed in the New Testament too).
Thus, the “Faith of Christ” Saves ‘all’ eventually (1 Corinthians 15:22, 1 Timothy 2:4, 1 Timothy 4:10, Colossians 1:20 etc.)
Our “faith in Christ” makes us (believers) as the “first fruits” and initial recipients of His Salvation on earth itself.
This is very clear in the ‘conclusion’ verse below regarding ‘faith’ too (please note that the “Faith of Christ” is said to apply to “all” and “all believers” —-> causing ‘Salvation’ to ‘all’ eventually because it’s clearly applied to all) as it is written agreeing ‘perfectly’ with other verses when understood correctly:
“and the righteousness of God is through the faith of Jesus Christ to all, and upon all those believing, — for there is no difference,” (Romans 3:22, YLT)
‘upon all those believing’ is a subset of ‘all’ and different phrases used above makes it so clear!
Yes, ‘no difference’ (Salvation in the end due to the most awesome ‘Faith of Christ’ through which ‘all’ will be ‘made righteous’ through the imputed ‘righteousness’ of God “freely”) as implied by these phrases in the verse above too!
Therefore, let’s appreciate Christ as the Blessed Messiah, the Savior of all men & also the Savior of the whole World too!
Indeed, let’s believe!
