What people do not understand.. they think UR is a belief that folks will "inherit eternal life" if they do not "believe" in the Lord Jesus. This, is not the point at all, of course! But! Everyone completely misses the fact that there will be two resurrections. There's the first one of all believers, then 1000 or so years later there is the second which is of all those who have never believed or perhaps even ever heard. The Bible itself says "how will they believe if they do not hear?"
- Now my logic rests upon the Hebrew spring and fall holy days, for you see if the spring ones prophesied and fulfilled the first advent of Jesus, then surely, the fall holy days prophecy and will be fulfilled by the long 2nd advent of Jesus. Notice the numbers
. The ancient and original fall holy days are #1-Trumpets, then 1O days
later #2-Day of Atonement, then 5 days
later, #3-Tabernacles. Now the peaks of the long 2nd advent are - #1-trumpet blown, angels sent forth to gather his elect from the four directions of the earth (& 1st resurrection of dead believers) then 1OOO years
later, #2-Day of Judgement, if "1O days" in this prophecy equates to the 1OOO year millenium, then the "5 days
" between Judgment day and Tabernacles-Revelation 21:3(KJ "God will Tabernacle with man") is 5OO years
, making judgment day a long day of the review of all things, all human history, etc, lasting roughly 5OO years
. Then note, the notorious words "those not believing will go to the 2nd death" is not said until all
who have ever lived have experienced, #1, being resurrected
out of their grave or the sea, etc.. and #2, have lived through, experienced and witnessed the long day of judgment. Who, after all that
, isn't going to believe
? This makes (surprise!) the day of judgment to actually be a GReat Day of Atonement!!
- Besides, God can only be perfect, and perfection makes no mistakes
! He, himself indirectly created all evil when he endowed thinking ability to angel and man, but hey, would we prefer to be a robot?? And since He did open the Pandora's box of choice, a by product of being able to think, he built the rescue into everything from the very beginning.. "from the foundation of the world".
