Heb 2:9 But we do see Him who was made for a little while lower than the angels, namely, Jesus, because of the suffering of death crowned with glory and honour, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone.
- Jesus death has covered ALL
- We know from 2 Peter 3:9 that there is a 'desire' to save all.
The LORD is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.
We also understand that as God grants repentance, the ball is in His court to call all eventually.
John 12:32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
I'd prefer not to deviate to a fruitless discussion about hell - mostly because that is not what the verse(s) is talking about. As God is called Saviour (Isaiah 43:11++), the name implies he saves! God's glory is what He says and accomplishes - not what He gets a passing grade for by saving most.
So essentially, we know all are covered, but it appears all are 'potentially' saved too.
Does 'everyone' potentially mean EVERYONE? Or to put it another way, If Jesus 'tasted death for everyone', then everyone will live in him too.
Is 55:11 So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.
When God calls someone, and He will call all in one time or another before the end of all ends, He doesn't do so with a 1/2 hearted wish. He does it with intent and with power and expects results according to His will - His heavenly will. Having accomplished the 'process' through Jesus, the rest is the easy bit.
