Dear Beloved Brothers and Sisters,
To all the Elders of discipleship and babes in Christ, still the question that is posed in the minds of believers and unbelievers is this, “What about the sins of those who never heard the name and honor of our Christ and King Yeshua?”, who being sent by the Father to be mankind’s mediator, testimony of the Father and Salvation for the world sins.
We must come to full understanding what is “Sin”? First, understand “Sin” is spiritual. It is missing the mark in ones own heart, it is not a list of wrong-doings, but being out-of-order of the Father’s will. The world being full of sin, the fruits of sins flourish unworthy fruit, which is only made for destruction. Sin seeded fear and pride in the spirit of man, only to produce offspring of deceit, envy, idolatry, witchcraft and sexual immorality, to touch on a few thoughts, which Apostle Paul elaborates. Being that sin is unworthy fruit, just as with Cain, the fruit of his works were unpleasing to the Father, our God.
As Adam and Eve brought sin in the world by their heart, severing the perfect spiritual connect to the Father, who is the Holy Spirit being perfect, in doing so, cut the ever direct flow of refreshment to the body and light to man, which led to death and blindness, the utter darkness of the mind. Due to God being just and righteous, even to responsibility of all spiritual being, so too Satan was cut off, so must be mankind. But understand through Christ he uses the harvest fields of mankind to raise up new creations, like wheat within the tares. To honor his word; God not being a liar, the punishment of death must be just, but the Father’s love must save his beloved children by making them new creations.
It is Simon Peter, who gives hope into our partaking of the divine nature and salvation: “Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ: Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. ~ 2 Peter 1:1-4 (KJV)
I write the above statement of understanding to give “meat’ to the full question, so the answer be clear. Apostle Paul give the answer to a not so direct question during his writing to the Romans:
“For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law; (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified. For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;) In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.” ~ Romans 2:12-16 (KJV)
“In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men,” it is in Revelation, written by Apostle John, gave details to Paul statement:
“And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.” ~ Revelation 20:11-14 (KJV)
So understand, this is also for those before the ministry of Yeshua, the crucifixion of our Lord and Christ and for those in the last days who never heard the Gospel. Even those murder before having understanding in accepting Christ as their personal savior, cut off at or before their infancy. The Father’s plan of Salvation through the re-creation of mankind is multilayered, but no longer a mystery.
As Apostle Peter wrote:
“Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into. Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.” ~ 1 Peter 1:10-16 (KJV)
Understand this is why Yeshua has commissioned us to preach, “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” ~ Mark 16:15
Don’t be fooled, as soon as the Gospel of our Lord Yeshua rings in their ears, it is their own soul do they preserved or reject. For God know's their heart and God’s word will move forward.
Those who know the words of our Lord and Savior is held accountable for not preaching of the word:
“And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.” ~ Luke 12:47-49 (KJV)
Don’t bury the gift, such as the servant who bury the talents. If we say Christ is our Master, why do we not do what he says:
“Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am. If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet. For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you. Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.” ~ John 13:13-16 (KJV)
We are not here to condemn the world, nor extinguish sin from this world, that is the work of our Father in Heaven. Our work is to love and tell others that the "Father Loves Them" and wants to make them into a new creation to be saved from destruction. We must forgive the sinners, so we may serve in love, that they many know the love of Christ and his and our Father YHWH.
I end with this Beloved of our God YHWH and his Christ, hold on to the Faith in what our Father has worked in us and to be fashioned as his Son, our King Yeshua.
Peace and Prayers, YHWH Bless!
