KEY SCRIPTURE:2 Corinthians 5:19 ” To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation”.
Our key scripture is an amazing truth that the Holy Spirit revealed to us through Apostle Paul. God was in Christ Jesus reconciling the world unto Himself not imputing their sins unto them.
The Lord Jesus is God. (John 10:30, Col 2:9).According to the scripture He was reconciling the world unto Himself. The word reconcile is translated from the Greek word ‘katalasso ‘which means ‘to ‘change’ or ‘to change thoroughly’ “He took away the sin of the whole world. (John 1:29 “The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.”)By taking away the sin of the world, He has changed it thoroughly.
All mankind are potentially saved .Jesus our Lord took away the sin of the world. This is the reason He is not counting the sins of the world against them .All the offences, past, present and future of the world has been taken away. This is the good news. Unfortunately this has not been preached to the world.
God is not angry with any sinner. God’s heart is in pain and broken over every unrepentant sinner. There is no barrier to their salvation but except unbelief.
Dear child of God, what the sinner needs is an opening of his eyes to the heart of the Father for him or her. In actual fact the god of this world has blinded the minds of them that believe not (2 Corinthians 4:4 in whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them).
There is a need for an intercession for sinners. Pray rebuking that blinding devil from his influence over their minds. Apostle Paul said he travails in birth again till Christ is formed in them. (Gal 4:19)To see a mass influx of souls into God’s house we need to do as Paul did; travail in birth pains for the power of Satan over their minds of sinners to be destroyed.
We have to teach this truth to the lost as well. Tell them God is not counting their sins against them rather, it is their lack of repentance and unbelief that is keeping them away. God is not mad at the sinner.
God through Jesus has finished everything for the salvation of all humanity. I would commit myself to praying for their eyes to be opened as I share the truth to them.
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
Isaiah 62:1 ” For Zion’s sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth”.
