Does the Bible teach that evilness will be wiped out?
« on: December 03, 2012, 08:44:50 AM »
For a long time I thought that after Christ would come back down and change everything and restore everything I thought that there will be no more evilness in the world. But reading the last chapter in revelations it says that the evil people will  not be allowed to enter the Gate, Christ says the "evildoers will be outside new Jerusalem", but "the gates will always be open by day"...What does that mean?

Very timely, Molly just posted this in another thread a few minutes ago;

That the feast of Tabernacles is the one feast preserved throughout the millenium reign of Christ indicates that this is the one feast that will not be fulfilled until the whole world is at-one-ment with God. The three fall feasts, trumpets, atonement, and tabernacles are called the feasts of prophecy because they are yet to be fulfilled. Of these three, only tabernacles remains open to be fulfilled, as offered to the peoples of the world during the 1000 year reign of Christ.

We see at the end of the book of Revelation, the bride and the Lamb are beckoning those without the holy city to wash their robes with the blood of the Lamb and become a part of the kingdom.  The implications of this is that all will eventually be saved by grace.


17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

--Rev 22

Neither should there be vulgar speech, foolish talk, or coarse jesting--all of which are out of character--but rather thanksgiving.  Eph. 5:4  **  Saved 1John 3.2, Eph. 2:8, John 1:12 - Being saved 2Cor. 4:16 2Peter 3:18 - Will be saved 1Peter 1:5 Romans 8:23

Hi Jabcat. you are correct. The three Old Testament feasts mentioned in Exodus 23:14-16 are a forshadow of the Consummation(1Corinthians 15:22-28) which mentiones three orders or classes to be made alive---'For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. BUT EVERY MAN IN HIS OWN ORDER"; 1ST ORDER--Christ the firstfruits: This was the Feast Of Unleavened Bread or passover. Christ described as passover in 1Corinthians 5:7; 2ND ORDER--They that are Christ at his coming:This is the church. This was call the firstfruit harvest or Feast of Weeks. The church is called the first fruits in James 1:8 and Revelation 14:4; Then the 3RD ORDER--This is the rest of mankind or God's remaining enemies: This is The Fall Harvest, Feast of Tabernacles, or The Feast of the Ingathering, the [End] of the year harvest(See Exodus 23:14-16 and Ephesians 1:10). Blessings to you.

Rj Christ the first fruits- including the saints resurrected in Matthew 27:53 a wave offering before the Lord :o)

 Feast of Atonement [that you may be one, even as I and the Father are one(Jn 17), Until we all attain to the unity of the faith, unto a mature man(Eph4), 'Do not fear what you are about to suffer. Behold, the devil is about to cast some of you into prison, so that you will be tested, and you will have tribulation for ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life(Rev 2:10), Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless.
(Eph 5:25-27)

I believe the first-half of the tribulation period is for the cleaning (spotless)and pressing(wrinkle free) of the Bride, she will be "made ready" for her "unveiling", "cominig down of of the heavens", so that she can stand with the Spirit and say "Come drink freely" (you can't drink freely in her now, you have to pay ;o).

"Behold, I am going to send My messenger, and he will clear the way before Me. And the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple; and the messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight, behold, He is coming," says the LORD of hosts. "But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner's fire and like fullers' soap. "He will sit as a smelter and purifier of silver, and He will purify the sons of Levi and refine them like gold and silver, so that they may present to the LORD offerings in righteousness. "Then the offering of Judah and Jerusalem will be pleasing to the LORD as in the days of old and as in former years. "Then I will draw near to you for judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers and against the adulterers and against those who swear falsely, and against those who oppress the wage earner in his wages, the widow and the orphan, and those who turn aside the alien and do not fear Me," says the LORD of hosts.
(Mal 3:1-5)

So there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God. For the one who has entered His rest has himself also rested from his works, as God did from His. Therefore let us be diligent to enter that rest, so that no one will fall, through following the same example of disobedience. For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do. Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin. Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
(Heb 4:9-16)

A little scripture from the highly idiomatic,translation/ paraphrase "The Message" Psalm 22:27-31
27-28 From the four corners of the earth
    people are coming to their senses,
    are running back to God.
Long-lost families
    are falling on their faces before him.
God has taken charge;
    from now on he has the last word.
29 All the power-mongers are before him
    —worshiping!
All the poor and powerless, too
    —worshiping!
Along with those who never got it together
    —worshiping!
30-31 Our children and their children
    will get in on this
As the word is passed along
    from parent to child.
Babies not yet conceived
    will hear the good news—
    that God does what he says.

When God is all in all there will be no more evil of any kind. The last adversary(death) will be done away with, when the last being is reconciled.

1 Cor 15:25-28 For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. 26 The last enemy to be destroyed is death. 27 For he "has put everything under his feet." Now when it says that "everything" has been put under him, it is clear that this does not include God himself, who put everything under Christ. 28 When he has done this, then the Son himself will be made subject to him who put everything under him, so that God may be all in all.

Ro. 8:18,19 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. 19 For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. 20 For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God.

Col 1:15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. 19 For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.
 
21 Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. 22 But now he has reconciled you by Christ's physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation

As we were enemies, and have received reconciliation, so also eventually every adversary will be reconciled through the blood of His cross, which was God's intention before the world began, when the Lamb was slain in the mind of God as the point of all that took place since the beginning or will take place until the end of the ages-

A revelation of Christ to each and every creature.

With all wisdom and understanding, 9 he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, 10 to be put into effect when the times reach their fulfillment—to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ.


Phil 2:9-11 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.


Rev 5:11 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;
 
12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.
 
13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.
