IT IS FINISHED!
"For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. "He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the only begotten Son of God." John 3:17,18
The question arises, how can a loving God condemn people to Hell? The answer is, Hell was prepared for the devil and his angels and never meant for men to go there! Mankind has chosen to rebel just as Satan did, therefore they are condemned and Hell has had to enlarge its throat to receive the multitudes!
God in His mercy prepared a pure and holy Sacrifice to save all of mankind, never meaning or desiring any to perish, but for all to come to the knowledge of the truth! Men are not chosen for their goodness nor their works, but only by their willingness to believe and receive Jesus as their Savior, Master and Lord.
Jesus shed His blood in seven specific places to give us a complete and perfect salvation and deliverance from sin, sickness, poverty and death. It began in a garden and it ended in a garden, it began with a tree and it ended with a tree! Jesus paid the price for us who deserved to be condemned along with the devil to eternal damnation!
"And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. "For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed." John 3:19,20
