Does Jehovah want to Save ALL People?

It is in Jehovah’s Character to want to save and bless.  He sent Jonah to preach and spared Nineveh.  The Bible tells us of Jehovah’s desire to save ALL people.

2 Peter 3:9 – “The Lord is … longsuffering …not wishing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.  ASV

1 Tim 2:4 – “who [God] desires ALL men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.”  NKJV

John 3:17 – “For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.  NKJV

If God wants to bless Mankind, isn’t he powerful enough to do so?

Isa 14:24; Isa 45:22-23; Jonah 3:10

    Domenic,

    Jehovah is more loving, merciful and longsuffering then men can imagaine. YES – ALL will get a full opportunity to be saved. Click here to see supporting scriptures:

    Click here: to see this short Ransom for ALL video so see from the Bible how Jehovah will provide a full opportunity to ALL.”

    Like I have said Peter, I have a simple mind. Why would God bring back those he has destroyed just to judge them again? He condemned Adam, and Eve…he destroyed those at the flood, and when Jesus returns, he is going to destroy many others. Why would God bring those he destroyed back just to judge them a second time? Would that not be like saying, “Maybe god made a mistake when he destroyed these people?”

      Anonymous – Because God is loving, patient and forgiving. Those He punished, if they learned the lesson, he will give them the opportunity to repent and live forever on earth. Wouldn’t you hope God would be so merciful?

      Even the Wicked get an Opportunity to Repent in the Kingdom

      Matt 11:20-24 – it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the day of judgment than for you… if the mighty works which were done in you had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day

      Luke 11:32 – The men of Nineveh will rise up in the judgment with this generation and condemn it. NKJV

      Ezek 16:55, 61,62 – Sodom and her daughters, return to their former state  NKJV

      Isa 60:14 –all those who despised you will bow themselves at the souls of your feet; And they will call you the city of the LORD.  The Zion of the Holy One of Israel. – NASV

      Rev 3:9 – I will cause those of the synagogue of Satan…to come and bow down at your feet”

    My first sentence wasn’t a question. My Daddy said always read things first and think, then give a reply.

  • Hank,
    My darling Grandfather instructed me as a boy how to communicate clearly with others. On one occasion he said, “Sonny, (a name he called me) never give reply to someone who answers your questions with a question…it will be like spitting in the wind.” Please read my post again.

    I noticed you used a couple of translations. Do you use others to?

  • Hank,
    It sounds like you follow a Catholic Bible. There are many different Bibles people us to learn Gods word. I have always found it best (for my study) to match all scripture to the scrolls…after all, it was the scrolls the Bible was taken from. The only difference there should be is: The scriptures, or books of the scrolls are translated into English, etc, and scriptures are named, and numbered in to Bible which makes finding scriptures an easy task.

    The New American Bible Saint Joseph Edition

    “Thus says the LORD: The heavens are my throne, the earth is my footstool. What kind of house can you build for me; What is to be my resting place? My hand made all these things when all of them came to be, says the LORD. This is the one whom I approve: the lowly and afflicted man who trembles at my word. Merely slaughtering an ox is like slaying a man; sacrificing a lamb, like breaking a dog’s neck; Bring a cereal offering, like offering swine’s blood; burning incense, like paying homage to an idol. Since these have chosen their own ways and taken pleasure in their own abominations, I in tern will choose ruthless treatment for them* and bring upon them what they fear. Because, when I called, no one answered, when I spoke, no one listened; Because they did what was evil in my site, and chose what gave me displeasure, Hear the word of the LORD, you who tremble at his word: Your brethren who, because of my name, hate and reject you, say, “Let the LORD show his glory that we may see your joy”; but they shall be put to shame. A sound of roaring from the city, a sound from the temple, The sound of the LORD repaying his enemies their deserts.”

    footnote* “Worship which is merely external is as evil as though it were idolatry.”

    Ps 91:14-16, “Because he clings to me, I will deliver him; I will set him on high because he acknowledges my name. He shall call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in distress; I will deliver him and glorify him; with length of days I will gratify him and will show him my salvation.”

  • Does YHWH want to save ALL People?
    Any who have served YHWH has been asked that question many times. Most who ask seem to believe YHWH will save all people. Being human we all feel surly God will save us?

    I like the scriptures posted on this thread. They are clear, and to the point.

    2 Peter 3:9 – “The Lord is … longsuffering …not wishing that any should perish… but that all should come to repentance. ASV

    “Not wishing that any should perish.” This is not saying none will perish. It is not saying all will be saved. God would like to see all do something that will give him reason to be save them.

    1 Tim 2:4 – “who [God]…desires ALL men to be saved…and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” NKJV

    Again God is saying, “Yes, I would like to save all men.” Again he is not saying all will be saved.

    John 3:17 – “For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. NKJV

    John 3:17 is very clear. “Might be saved.” In this scripture he is again not saying all will be saved.

    These three scriptures do answer the question; “Does YHWH want to save ALL People?”
    The answer is yes he does. Is he saying he will save all people? No he is not.

    These three scriptures seem to some to condemn all of us to death. I have heard many say, “No, Jesus died for all of us, so we will not be left in death.” When Jesus returns, he will lift his people off the earth, and the rest he will destroy…he will not save all people. That leaves the big question, “Who will YHWH save, and how does he judge us? One thing I do know for sure…”I know how our God, YHWH, and our Lord Jesus judge us.
    This is what is clear to me, God can see into the future…we are judged by God not as we are now, but as we would be in the future. “If Domenic was on a perfect earth, and had a perfect mind, and body like Adam, would he serve me as I want him to?” if the answer is yes, I will have life. If the answer no, I will not have life.
    Will YHWH save all people. No he will not. If he did the earth would be just as it is today.

    So how can we gage were we are? Simple. Do no judge yourself. Many of us are fare behind many others. God does not judge how good we are, he looks at our effort. He knows some have been beaten up more than others. We don’t have to be A+ students. An F- is acceptable to him if that is our best effort. The key word in this classroom is effort. Don’t serve for the reward of life…serve because your heart will let you do no other.
