That all the sins of mankind have been punished and forgiven on the cross, do not imply that God can no longer punish, by refusing to cover you. Satan still deceives, hunts and harms people.
God of Israel is the master of history, and can act as He desire, within the limits of His own Word. He can rebuke, discipline and punish. But God has provided an escape from punishment, for all who obey the Messiah. In particular in the eternal perspective. We are not destined for God’s wrath, but will live forever inside the Kingdom of Heaven. Amen.
If anyone try to convince you that God has stopped all punishment, this false teacher will lead you into lawlessness. No need to fear God, because God do no longer punish. The conclusion will be that mostly everything can be permitted, and will be covered by mercy and grace.
God of the Old testament is presented as rather cruel, and we are told that “Jesus” is a much nicer God. A replacement of the old, the founder of a new and more human religion called “Christianity”.
The best New Testament example that expose this faulty doctrine, is Peter’s Post-Calvary Hill handling of Saphira and Ananias. They lied to the Holy Spirit, and died at the feet of the Apostle. Surely punished by God for a sin that leads to death.
Then Peter said, ‘Ananias, how is it that Satan has so filled your heart that you have lied to the Holy Spirit and have kept for yourself some of the money you received for the land?
The teachers of the false gospel of “unlimited grace”, delete a Biblical promise. There is a sin, that will never be forgiven, neither today, nor into eternity. Blasphemy and sin against the Holy Spirit.
but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven; they are guilty of an eternal sin.’
If all curse were broken and forgiven for all of mankind, when Jesus the Messiah died on the cross, there would be no need for the Messiah to tell a lot of people on the event of His second coming: Away from me, all you who are cursed.
‘Then he will say to those on his left, “Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.
Yes, we are called to preach reconciliation between man and God, which is a hundred per cent surety after a man surrender to the Messiah. But if you refuse to repent from your sins, and do no submit to the Messiah, you are still under a curse. And God is completely free to permit Satan to take you for a ride.
God may not directly punish you, but he might permit that you will he haunted by the evils you have accepted. And when God refuse to cover you, and to protect you, this should correctly be considered a form of punishment. And in the end, you will face the ultimate eternal punishment, after a just verdict. Guilty of refusing to be covered by the blood of lamb of God. Sentenced to spend eternity in Hell.
That Jesus the Messiah has died for the sins of the world, is not good news for people who reject the mercy and grace now available. The offer of divine rescue will become a reality only for those who surrender to truth. There is no love outside of truth, and no reconciliation possible. Mankind still live in darkness, because they take pleasure in sin, and desire to live in darkness. Many people outright blesses sin. What they sow, they will reap.
May God of Israel, our Lord Jesus the Messiah have mercy on all deceived souls.
