If we may embrace the wonderful and comforting thoughts
communicated in this poem as being true for us, why should they not,
eventually, be true for everybody? It struck me that this poem, most
eloquently, implies universal salvation and reconciliation!
If these wonderful truths, expressed here, may not be
applied to all mankind, eventually, a very good answer must be found to
satisfy the question, "Why not?" Or, an honorable answer must be
found to the question, "Why would it be correct, for any of us, to
apply these marvelous truths to ourselves?"
In 1 Tim.2:4 it states, very clearly, "Who [God]
wills that all mankind be saved and come into a realization of the truth."
This poem speaks very compellingly about the
"Will" of God, as well as about many additional, powerful
attributes of Him.
Should not all these superb characteristics and
attributes of our Heavenly Father, as they are announced in this poem,
mightily declare that, if any human being may claim them to be true
for him or her, that it must follow that, someday, they will also be true
for everybody, bar none?
Coming across a poem like this should immediately cause
us to wonder why it is such a rare thing to find not more believers
embracing that universal salvation is inevitable? How can it be that there
are any who dare to believe all these wonderful truths, regarding the Will
of God, to be only for them, and not for everybody, in the long run,
Are God's will, God's grace, God's love, God's arm,
God's power, God's wisdom, God's Spirit, God's richness, God's hand, God's
mercy, God's peace, God's authority, God's miracles, God's omnipresence
and omniscience too limited and too confined to save all? If so, How come
He can save any?
Why would a poem like this not lead all, who ever read
it and rejoice in it, to come to say, "If this is true for me, then
it will be true for all!" And in reverse, "If this is not true
for all, why should it be true for me?"
Thankfully, Scripture tell us that God, indeed, will
become ALL in all (1 Cor.15:28, 1 Tim.2:4, Col.1:20).
