Well if everyone was universally onboard for Yeshua, our Lord and Savior. If everyone belonged to Him, sure then universalism would be so biblical. But as it is, we either are with Him or we are not, we can not unify with opposing beliefs. It just is a conflict of His interests. With that in mind, vengeance is His. We are to stand in our truth and love our enemies. Love doesn't mean, though, that we invest who we are or our time, faith and principles with those that oppose Christ. Because there are many lost souls that need our seed planted, though, we have to walk with grace and love, shining the light of Him, appealing for ultimate cause of Yahweh. We need His help and direction to get us and as many others possible where we need to be...on His Journey, leading us home.
Let’s look at what we know:
- Jesus Christ is the ONLY WAY to the Father.
- We all need a Savior and Jesus is the Only Savior.
- After death is the judgment, however, it is not the Great White Throne judgement so, perhaps there is still a chance.....
- Jesus has the keys to Hades so He can lock people in or let them out...
- So, if I died and ended up in Hades, the ONLY WAY OUT and to the Father is still Jesus Christ and Him alone.
- Father Abraham cannot cross the great chasm nor anyone, but Jesus can!
So, my answer to your question is YES! I believe it is possible, BUT ONLY WITH JESUS and they have to call on His Name and receive His Blood for forgiveness of their sins and receive His Righteousness which is His Body - the Bread of Life.
According to the original authors of the Bible, the word forever does mean age-long. A temporary amount of time. Not always forever.
What is the point of being punished if you don't get let out in a few years? The whole purpose of punishment is to teach people to do better.
Salvation does not only take place in this life. The Bible says judgement comes after death, but that judgement is age-long, not forever. If Jesus is all-powerful, than he can save you anytime/anywhere. He can always pay for your sin.
How can it apply to the afterlife. When after death comes judgment. Who is going to deny Christ when you stand face to face?
yet the bible says, whoever is not written in the book of life. That death and hades who are delivered to christ. Are sent to a place of torment, and it is called the second death, of which their is no cure.
