Chapter 1 – Introduction

This book, God’s Plan for All, will challenge you to question some longstanding and entrenched traditional Christian beliefs, such as the Trinity, Hell and the Immortality of the Soul. We hope that it will also inspire and bless you with overflowing gladness in your heart to know the one true Father God, Yahweh Elohim, of the Bible and His only begotten Son, Yeshua Elohim, Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the world.

John 4:42
Then they said to the woman “Now we believe, not because of what you said, for we ourselves have heard Him and we know that this is indeed the Christ, the Savior of the world”. 

We recommend that you read God’s Plan for All following the chapter order as listed under ‘Contents’. This will help you to better understand and appreciate the main points as they are developed in our book. We will start with a short introduction.

We are born to live, and then to die. However, we do not have any choice about our birth. Nobody is able to choose what parents they have, in what country they are born and when they are born. A Jewish baby born in Hitler’s concentration camp had no choice; an Indian baby born in the slums of Mumbai had no choice; an African baby born in the Congo jungle had no choice; likewise, a European baby born in a royal palace to a Princess had no choice. However, one thing is absolutely sure that everybody who is born must also die. According to the World Health Organisation, average life expectancy varies from between 60 to 80 years, depending upon the country where you live. Of course, many people die much younger than 60 years of age for various reasons such as, ill health, accidents, violence, wars and natural disasters. So, the big question is ‘Why are we here?’ Are we born to live here on this earth for only a relatively short period of time and die, and then that is the end of us?

Most religious people believe in some form of life after death. Many people believe we go to heaven if we are good, but we go to hell if we are bad. Traditional Christianity also believes in heaven and hell. It preaches that if we do not believe in Jesus Christ during this life, then we will be judged by God to go to hell forever.

Hell is described as a horrific place of conscious pain and torture that never ends. A level of torture, impossible for us to even imagine, worse than any person could ever inflict upon another person, even trillions of times worse than the torture inflicted in Adolph Hitler’s concentration camps.

The doctrine of hell throws up massive contradictions to what the Word of God says about the Sovereignty of God, His attributes, His love, His forgiveness, His justice, His grace and the finished work of Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for the sins of the whole world. For example, the Bible says in Colossians 1:19-20 that God will reconcile all things on earth and all things in heaven to Himself, having made peace through the blood that His Son shed on the cross. How could hell, which is described as a place of endless torture for the vast majority of people, ever in the remotest way be considered as the reconciliation of all things, and a means of bringing peace between God and His created people?

Hell believing Christians argue that it is God’s justice, which causes Him to throw multiple billions of people into a hell of eternal torture. If this were true, then it would be the strangest and cruellest type of justice one could ever imagine. What type of justice would it be for an all-knowing, all-loving God who knows the end from the beginning, and foreknew that man would sin, then proceed to create multiple billions of people in His own image, who would end up being punished by Him eternally for their sins committed in the few years of their temporary existence in this life?

Thankfully, the true God of the Bible is an absolutely just God, whose just plan will ensure that ultimately all people will be reconciled to Him because of the loving sacrifice of His Son Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for the sins of the whole world (1 John 2:2).

Hell believers further argue that Jesus Christ Himself preached more about hell than any other person in the Bible. What Jesus actually spoke about was gehenna, not hell. The Greek word gehenna has been mistranslated as ‘hell’ in most, but not all, versions of the Bible. Jesus never spoke about a hell of endless torture. Jesus and the Bible do not support the traditional Christian teaching of hell. Traditional Christianity has not understood the fullness of God’s Plan to eventually bring all people into the Kingdom of God.

The traditional Christian view of hell is such an uncomfortable, illogical and contradictory teaching that currently a significant number of Christians believe that, on the Day of Judgement, God will destroy or annihilate all those who have not believed in Jesus Christ during their earthly lives. In other words, they believe that there is no conscious endless suffering in hell, but total destruction of unbelievers, meaning that they will cease to exist.

We can empathise with some Christians who cannot accept that God would torture unbelievers forever, and thus have opted to believe in annihilation. However, we also reject this view as unbiblical. What a massive defeat the belief in annihilation represents to God, His purpose, and His love for all people, whom He created in His own image, and for whom His Son Jesus Christ died, if He were to end up destroying the vast majority of them out of existence.

We have written this book because we strongly believe and know that the true biblical teaching is neither the traditional Christian view of hell nor the view of annihilation. Our great God is neither a great tormentor nor a great annihilator, but He is the great Saviour of the world.

There is not one single scripture in the whole of the Bible, including those spoken by Jesus Christ Himself, which contradicts the most glorious truth of the Bible that God is indeed the Saviour of the whole world. The Bible, as written in the original Hebrew and Greek Manuscripts, does not contradict itself. All contradictions found in the Bible are due to man’s translation and interpretation errors. The truth of the Bible that Jesus Christ is the Saviour of the world and the doctrine of hell cannot both be true at the same time.

Most Christians are unaware of the fact that the doctrine of hell is due to mistranslations of important Hebrew and Greek words. This book gives complete and comprehensive answers to why, when and how the doctrine of hell crept into Christianity.

The powerful truth of the Bible is that God has solved the problem of sin once and for all through the sacrifice made on the cross by His only begotten Son for the sins of the whole world (Romans 6:10, 1 John 2:2). The Bible says that Christ died for the ungodly (Romans 5:6), and when sin abounds, grace abounds much more (Romans 5:20). Yes, everybody is born a sinner because of one man’s sin, Adam’s sin (Romans 5:12), but everybody is destined to become Righteous because of one Man’s Righteousness, Jesus Christ’s Righteousness (Romans 5:18-19).

Father God has a simple plan to save the whole world through His only begotten Son Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for the sins of the whole world. There is only one way to be saved, and it is by the gift of God given faith to believe in the true Christ of the Bible that He is indeed God’s only begotten Son, and His finished work on the cross for the universal salvation of the whole world.

During this life, before the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, God’s purpose is to save only a few called and chosen people who are His Elect, the 144,000 Firstfruits (Revelation 14:1-5). God is not desperately trying to save the whole world during this life, and Satan is not winning hands down by taking all unbelievers, who are the overwhelming majority of humanity, to a so-called hell when they die. These multitudes, billions upon billions of unsaved people, are not lost forever because God will save all of them after the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. The glorious purpose of God’s Elect, the 144,000 Firstfruits, is for God to use them in the evangelising work of salvation to reap the Great Harvest of the rest of humanity in the ages to come, as we explain in detail in this book.

Gospel means Good News, and the true Gospel of Jesus Christ is indeed the GOOD NEWS about how Father God will ultimately save this whole world of fallen sinful men and fallen sinful angels, without a single exception, through His only begotten Son Jesus Christ. This is the Gospel that was believed by early Christians after the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

It is indeed the destiny of each and every human being and each and every angel, without a single exception, to enter the Eternal Kingdom of God of the New Heaven and the New Earth as created sons of God, and be part of the one huge Elohim Family of God; the Family of the one true Father God, Yahweh Elohim, and His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, Yeshua Elohim. This is ‘God’s Plan for All’; the Glorious Grand Family Plan of our heavenly Father God, and hence, the title for this book.

The whole of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation becomes wonderfully and powerfully alive, without any contradictions, once you understand God’s Plan for All. In this book, we fully discuss God’s Plan of universal salvation for all, which Father God is working out in seven biblical Ages through His only begotten Son Jesus Christ.
