The Simplicity of Grace through Faith in Jesus as Lord yet “many” will die the “second death” in Hell, why?
13 “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. 14 For the gate is narrow and the way is constricted that leads to life, and there are few who find it.” Matthew 7:13-14 (NASB)
16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish, but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but so that the world might be saved through Him. 18 The one who believes in Him is not judged; the one who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.” John 3:16-18 (NASB)
Why will “many” suffer the “second death” in Hell?
First, unfortunately and tragically, many of Israel’s children will not be named among the “remnant” saved from Hell in the last days through belief in Messiah Yeshua as they refuse to remove the veil of unbelief that masks their ability to “see” resulting from the Jewish Blood Curse of their forefathers who demanded that Messiah’s blood be upon them and their children; tragic because that veil is lifted when a Jew or Israelite steps-out in “faith” and believes with a sincere heart that Yeshua is Messiah who died for them (Matthew 27; Romans 9:27; Isaiah 10:22; Romans 11; 2 Corinthians 3:12-18).
Second, Israel’s children are consumed with self-righteousness (Romans 10); that is, they stubbornly refuse grace (unmerited favor/gift unattainable through human effort) through faith (trusting-believing) that Yeshua is Messiah who died for them and thereby receive eternal life through the imputation of Messiah’s righteousness (Ephesians 2:8-9; John 3; 2 Corinthians 5:21). Israel’s children insist that the works of the Law, their self-righteousness attained through a facade of obedience, pleases God and through repentance and being a good Jew, God will be pleased…this is the lie of the Devil (John 8:44; John 3).
Concerning the Gentiles,
An overwhelming number of Gentiles will perish in the “second death” (Revelation 20:11-15) due to unbelief in Jesus as Lord because they’ve been brainwashed, deceived, by a secularized society that dishonors God and worships at the throne of Darwin i.e. atheism, secular humanism, moral relativism. Most Gentiles worship their flesh, sensuality, love of self in narcissism; therefore, they will be “without excuse” in the Judgment of the Condemned as there are truly no atheists as all men and women having attained an age of reason possessing sufficient cognitive acuity to discern the world around them intuitively knows that God’s exists (Romans 1:18-32).
God the Father sent the Son into the World “to destroy the works of the Devil” (1 John 3:8b) as the Father is restoring peace and order to His Kingdom that was unfathomably disrupted by a rebellion of created hosts exercising free will void restraint. Every human being has been placed within the constraints of Time and physics as warriors in this cosmic-spiritual struggle removed from the Kingdom and placed here for the Kingdom’s sake and our eternal destiny hinges upon whom we ally with i.e. the Devil in self-righteousness and lust of the flesh or God the Father by faith in Jesus Christ as Lord.
Those who honor the Devil through a defiled lifestyle will sow and reap corruption and the “second death;” those who align with and support God the Father by life changing faith in Jesus as Lord and obey the indwelling Holy Spirit in sanctification validating the veracity of that faith will reap honor, peace, everlasting life in God’s New Jerusalem subsequent the resurrection. The choice is yours.
The struggle between Good and evil manifesting before our eyes was initiated in the Kingdom of God before Time and under girded by disobedience to God’s moral law via free will. God the Father is not only righting this wrong and seeking the restoration of peace and order in His Kingdom through His own selfless love (the Gospel), but God is using this present World, its defilement and horror resulting from sin, to demonstrate the predictable, immutable, resultant of disobedience which will act as a bulwark against future rebellion, disobedience, destruction, in the New Jerusalem where free will is extant by necessity; therefore, do not fool yourself into thinking that your sin and its destructive nature will be permitted to enter the Kingdom of God as God has promised that NOTHING impure will ever enter therein (Revelation 21:27); therefore, unless your sin has been nullified, forgiven, by grace through faith in Jesus Christ as Lord who died for YOU and His righteousness imputed over your life by that faith, the new-nature having manifest through the indwelling Holy Spirit as your Teacher, you have NO HOPE (2 Corinthians 5:21; John 14:6; Ephesians 1:13-14; Galatians 5:16)! Fight the good fight of faith and live with God as His faithful servant, forever (1 Timothy 6:12).
