Does God Show Mercy on All?

Recently, a lady who receives the Moments with My Master emails was moved upon by the LORD to address a deception she read. It involved Galatians 3:28. The disturbing post she addressed read this way:

“Jesus talks to us all, no matter what color, what religion, what race….. You can disagree with people’s opinions, beliefs or lifestyles and Still love and accept them as individuals…..if you doubt this….then search for yourself … read through the book of John taking special note of how Jesus does exactly that!……”

There are two issues here in the statement made above:

  1. Does Jesus speak to people who are not yet saved the same as He speaks to those who are? No. Jesus speaks to all hearts and yet will not save anyone who doesn’t hear Him calling them to repent and believe upon Him (Acts 16:31). Jesus told us that His sheep hear His voice and that the world (the unsaved) cannot receive His Holy Spirit and therefore can’t hear His voice the same as the born again believer (John 10; 14:17). The LORD convicts sinners and speaks into the hearts of His saints, guiding them each step of the way as they walk with Him (John 9: 31; 10:1-16, etc.).
  2. Yes, we can love the lost as Jesus does without agreeing with them but remaining in full agreement with God’s holy Word, letting God be true and every man and every false religion and false prophet be a liar (Matthew 5:43-48; Romans 3:3-4). We are to love them by calling them to repent and be saved (Revelation 22:17). The LORD loves the lost and yet will not save them from sin, Satan, and the lake of fire unless they repent, nor will He commune with them as He does His blood-bought people (Luke 13:3, 5, etc.). He calls and “commandeth ALL men everywhere to repent.” (Acts 17:30) It’s only then that they are His sheep and can hear His voice. All religions or beliefs do not lead to God, only Jesus does and only believing and obeying God by repenting and placing one’s faith in Christ saves the lost soul (John 10:9; 14:6; Acts 4:12; 1 Timothy 2:5, etc.).

Does the one true God, approached only through His only begotten Son, speak to all men the same? No.

“Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.” John 9:31

The misleading part about what they posted was the idea that God accepts all men, no matter what they believe. That’s not what Galatians 3:28 is saying at all nor does any Scripture teach such. Jesus is the only way to God and notice how many times His precious, holy name appears in this passage ……

“For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” Galatians 3:26-29 (KJV)

It’s only those who are “one IN Christ Jesus” who are God’s children, regardless of their physical race or whether or not they are in jail or not, or whether they are male or female.

The LORD only indwells those who come to Him in repentance and faith (Acts 20:21). He then regenerates them, makes them a new creature in Christ, and then indwells them by His Holy Spirit as His temples (1 Corinthians 3:16; 2 Corinthians 5:17-18; Titus 3:4-7; 1 John 3:24).

The Bible is God’s Word and in His Word the LORD told us that He is not confused, even though so many humans are (1 Corinthians 14:33). He made only one way to get to Him and that’s His only begotten Son Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the very Son of God and not a way but rather “THE way” to God the Father and Heaven.

“I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.” John 10:9 (KJV)

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.’ John 14:6 (KJV)

“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;” 1 Timothy 2:5 (KJV)

There’s a special and vital union, relationship, and fellowship between Christ and His sheep:

“I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.” John 10:14

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.” John 10:27

Jesus is Coming.

Peace With God
