Chapter 3.1   -   Revealing the five (5) "Kingdoms of Heaven" on earth

Christian theology (both Catholic and Protestant) has always accepted the reality of the first three "Kingdoms of Heaven".

Christians understand the FIRST "Kingdom of Heaven" (the first "generation" of Saints) was the (1st) Pre-Flood Kingdom,

which included all the Saints from Adam until Noah.  They may not have considered these first Saints as being a "generation",

or as being a separate "Kingdom"... but they do understand Pre-Flood Saints are included in the Eternal "Kingdom of Heaven",

and they do understand that the Pre-Flood Saints are just as much a PART of the "Body of Christ" as the New Testament Saints.

Likewise, Christians understand the SECOND "Kingdom of Heaven" (the second "generation" of Saints) was Saints living

in the (2nd) Old Testament Kingdom.  While Christians may not have considered the Jewish Saints as being a "generation" or

as being a separate and distinct "Kingdom" on earth, they do understand that (like Pre-Flood Saints) Jewish Saints are included

in the Eternal "Kingdom of Heaven", and Jewish Saints are just as much a PART of the "Body of Christ" as any Christian Saint.

And Christians understand the (2nd) Kingdom on earth was "taken" from the Jewish "generation"... and it was "given"

to the disciples of Jesus during the THIRD "Kingdom" on earth, the (3rd) Christian Kingdom (the third "generation" of Saints).

This prophecy assumes (a) the reader is Christian and (b) they already understand these first three "Kingdoms of Heaven" on earth.

This prophecy reveals Biblical mysteries about Daniel's FOURTH "Kingdom" on earth.  Mysteries that remained "sealed" until this time.

Mat 21:43    Therefore say I unto you, the KINGDOM OF GOD shall be TAKEN from you [TAKEN from the Jewish Kingdom], 

                     and GIVEN to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof [and GIVEN to the Christian "Kingdom of Heaven"]

Christian theology (both Catholic and Protestant) has always understood the reality of these first three "Kingdoms of Heaven".

But Christian eschatology NEVER understood that, when the Great Commission was finished and all the Saints were "sealed",

the (3rd) Christian Kingdom would end - God would withdraw His Holy Spirit from the Kingdom - and the FOURTH Kingdom

would begin as Satan is "loosened" from the Pit... and given Rule during his "Little Season", also shown as Daniel's Fourth Beast,

the Revelation Beast, and (4th) Great Tribulation Kingdom.  So, the Fourth Kingdom on earth is the Kingdom of the Anti-Christ.

When the (3rd) Christian "Kingdom of Heaven" was finished, when the "testimony" of the Saints during the "Great Commission"

was complete (and all the "sheep" had been "sealed") all living Saints were "harvested" into the (4th) Great Tribulation Kingdom

as they "went forth" from their churches and they followed the "Anti-Christ" during Daniel's FOURTH BEAST or KINGDOM.

The "THEN" in Matthew 25:1 is not the start of the (2nd) Jewish Kingdom, or start of the (3rd) Christian Kingdom (at Pentecost).

Instead, it's the start of Daniel's Fourth (Great Tribulation) "Kingdom of Heaven".  It's the start of the 7-Headed Revelation Beast.

Mat 25:1     THEN [at the beginning of the Great Tribulation] shall the Kingdom of Heaven [all of the "wheat" and the "tares"]

                    be likened unto [look like] TEN VIRGINS [the completion of all Believers], which took their lamps [took their Gospels],

                    and went forth [from the (3rd) Christian Beast - into the (4th) Great Tribulation Beast] to meet the Bridegroom [Jesus Christ]

  

This "harvest" of Ten "Horns/Kings/Virgins" OUT of the (3rd) Christian "Kingdom of Heaven" is shown in many different passages.

And, as with each of the previous "Kingdoms of Heaven", the (4th) Great Tribulation Kingdom included both (few) saved "wheat"

and (many) unsaved "tares", which are represented as being either the "Wise Virgins" (wheat)... or the "Foolish Virgins" (tares).

Daniel's Fourth Kingdom is the LAST Kingdom on earth before the Lord establishes the (5th) Eternal "Kingdom of Heaven",

and it consists exclusively of the Ten "Horns/Kings/Virgins" who actually "went forth" from the (3rd) Christian Kingdom.

Mat 25:7      Then [all of] the [ten] virgins AROSE, and "trimmed their lamps" [adjusted their gospel based on "seeing" or not "seeing"

                     the historical fulfillment of Great Tribulation prophecies],  8  And the foolish [virgins] said to the wise [virgins], give us

                     of your oil; for our lamps [our gospels] are gone out [do not have the Holy Spirit],  9  But the wise [virgins] answered,

                     saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us [wise virgins] and you [foolish virgins]: But go ye rather to them who

                     sell [salvation by works] and buy for yourself [the Bible speaks of preaching doctrines as the "selling" of Gospels].

Finally, when the (4th) Great Tribulation Kingdom was finished, before Daniel's Fourth Beast is destroyed,

before the 7-Headed Revelations Beast is destroyed, and before the Anti-Christ is "cast alive" into the "Lake-of-Fire"...

the "Final Harvest" occurs, as some (the "Wise Virgins") were taken into the "Marriage of the Lamb" (and "the Door was Shut")

while others (the "Foolish Virgins") are left-behind in the Fourth Kingdom and/or the Revelation Beast.  The final harvest,

taking LAST SAINTS out of Daniel's FOURTH "Kingdom of Heaven" and into the (5th) Eternal "Kingdom of heaven",

occurs BEFORE the end of the Great Tribulation Kingdom, and BEFORE the start of the "Season and Time".

Read Chapter 1.3 (carefully) to see the "Harmony of Scripture" about this "unsealed" Biblical mystery.  

Mat 25:10    And while they [the Foolish Virgins] went to buy, the Bridegroom [the Lord Jesus Christ] came;

                    and they that were ready [the Wise Virgins] went in with Him to the MARRIAGE [in the Final Harvest]:

                    and THE DOOR WAS SHUT.  11  Afterward came also the other [Foolish] Virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 

                    12  But He answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.

This Biblical "mystery", of the "Final Harvest" being from the Fourth Kingdom, instead of the (3rd) Christian Kingdom,

is shown in many passages in both the Old Testament and the New Testament.  However, as the Bible promised, understanding

of these Biblical mysteries remained "sealed" to all the Saints - until it was revealed to (only) the "Wise Virgins" during the current

"Season and Time" after the Revelation Beasts were destroyed.  This reality is shown in great detail in the following chapters and

is based on harmony of ALL RELATED passages.

The phrase "Kingdom of Heaven" is used thirty-three (33) times in the Bible and every time the phrase represents the

many unsaved "tares" and/or the few saved "wheat", associated with preaching the "Word of the Kingdom" (the Gospel)

during one of the FOUR KINGDOMS on earth - or it represents only the "wheat" in the (5th) Eternal "Kingdom of Heaven".

The four "Kingdoms of Heaven" are physical and temporal Kingdoms... and there's a "harvest" of Saints at the end of each,

with the "Final Harvest" including only the "Wise Virgins" living during the (4th) Great Tribulation "Kingdom of Heaven".

After four temporal "Kingdoms of Heaven" the (souls of the) Last Saints are "harvested" into the (5th) Eternal "Kingdom of Heaven"

just before the END of the 2nd Woe (Sixth Trumpet) of the Revelation Beast - just before the Revelation Beast is destroyed, as shown

in Daniel 7:11-12 and Revelation 19:20.  Then there is a relatively brief "Season and Time" or "time-of-the-end" before the destruction

of Satan's physical/political "Kingdoms of Man" (world governments). Read chapters 1.2 and 1.3 to learn more about the "Final Harvest"

and "Season and Time" before world governments are destroyed and JOIN THE REVELATION BEAST in the "Lake of Fire" [Rev 20:10].

3.2   -   Understanding the Context of Scripture (Theology 101)

Therefore, since the phrase "Kingdom of Heaven" can be used to indicate one of FIVE different earthly Kingdoms...

the FIRST STEP in understanding the Biblical meaning of any particular passage using the phrase must be determining

the context of that usage - in other words, WHICH of those five "Kingdoms of Heaven" is in view in that specific passage?

For example: in the passages below the "Kingdom of Heaven" represents the (3rd) New Testament Kingdom (Christian Church).

Note:  This is not an "unsealed" Biblical mystery - the Christian Saints have always correctly understood the context of these verses

represent the earthly "Kingdom" of the New Testament Christian Church.

Mat 13:24    Another parable put He forth unto them, saying, the [3rd Christian] Kingdom of Heaven is likened unto a man

                    which sowed good seed in His field:  25  But while men slept, His enemy came and sowed tares

Mat 13:47    Again, the [3rd Christian] Kingdom of Heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:

                    48  Which, when it was full they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels,

However, in the passages below the phrase "Kingdom of Heaven" is clearly not the (3rd) Christian Kingdom of wheat and tares.

Instead, it represents the (5th) Eternal "Kingdom of Heaven", which consists exclusively of the "wheat" from each of the previous

(four) "Kingdoms of Heaven" on earth.  In Matthew 19:23 and 5:20, the phrase "Kingdom of Heaven" obviously does not represent

the temporal/physical (3rd) Christian Kingdom of both "wheat and tares"... instead it represents the (5th) Eternal "Kingdom of Heaven". 

Equally obvious, in both Matthew 8:11 and 7:21-23 the phrase "Kingdom of Heaven" can only represent the (5th) Eternal Kingdom,

which includes only the (saved) "wheat" from each of the four temporal earthly Kingdoms... including Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

Again, this information is not an "unsealed" mystery, this context has always been understood by the New Testament Saints.

Mat 19:23   Then said Jesus unto His disciples, Verily I say unto you, that a rich man

                    shall hardly enter into the [5th Eternal] Kingdom of Heaven.

Mat 5:20     For I say unto you, that except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes

                    and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the [5th Eternal] Kingdom of Heaven.

Mat 8:11      I say unto you, that many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with

                    Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the [5th Eternal] Kingdom of Heaven.

Mat 7:21     Not everyone [within the 3rd Christian Kingdom] that saith unto Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter

                    into the [5th Eternal] Kingdom of Heaven: but he that doeth the Will of My Father which is in heaven.

                    22  Many [tares] will say to Me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied [preached] in Thy Name?

                    and in Thy Name have cast out devils? [saved the lost sheep] and in Thy Name done many wonderful works?

                    23  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from Me ye that work iniquity.

What is an "unsealed" Biblical mystery, what has never been understood by any Saint before the current "Season and Time",

is the Great Tribulation (the Kingdom of Ten "Horns/Kings/Toes/Virgins") is the FOURTH "Kingdom of Heaven" on earth.

While most Christians assume the timing of "THEN" in Matthew 25:1 represents Christian Saints going forth at Pentecost,

it's simply NOT POSSIBLE to harmonize that notion with the rest of the passage.  The fact is:  Nobody on earth today can

show how historical events within the (3rd) New Testament Kingdom fulfill this prophecy... as you cannot harmonize history

with the passage (we invite the reader to try).  While verses 25:8-9 cannot represent events during the New Testament Kingdom,

(because the Saints never refuse to preach - or send people to others for Salvation during the Great Commission), those events

harmonize exactly with the experiences of the Ten "Horns/Kings/Toes/Virgins", during the (4th) Great Tribulation Kingdom.

The parable/prophecy of the "Ten Virgins" provides both an outline and chronology of the Fourth '"Kingdom of Heaven".

While harmony of all related Scripture is the only measure of Biblical Truth, the only confirmation of Biblical Truth is fulfillment

of the prophecy in recorded history (in reality).  And we have this historical confirmation of the parable/prophecy of the "Ten Virgins" when the "Wise Virgins" separated from the "Foolish Virgins" during the fourth "watch" of the Great Tribulation "Kingdom of Heaven",

in a period which the Bible NAMES as being the "Days of Vengeance". See chapter 8 and chapter 9 for information on fulfillment of the

parable/prophecy of the "Ten Virgins".  For now, stay focused on the fact that (a) the Great Tribulation was the (4th) "Kingdom of Heaven" on earth and (b) it began when the Last Saints "went forth" from the (3rd) Christian "Kingdom of Heaven", which was the "Church Age".

The parable of the "Ten Virgins" was NOT Jesus telling a fairy tale (or a lie)... it was a prophecy that must be fulfilled in actual history.

Mat. 25:1    THEN [the beginning of the Great Tribulation] shall the Kingdom of Heaven [the "wheat" and "tares"]

                    be likened unto [look like] TEN VIRGINS [all the Believers], which took their lamps [took their Gospels]

                    and WENT FORTH [from the 3rd Beast - into the 4th Beast] to meet the Bridegroom [the Lord Jesus Christ].

  

This Biblical Truth is a very important PART of the Gospel of the Bible - but, since it remained "sealed" until this "Season and Time",

it was a Biblical "mystery" during the (2nd) Old Testament "Kingdom of Heaven" and the (3rd) New Testament "Kingdom of Heaven".

Saints living during the Jewish Kingdom were never meant to understand the fulfillment of prophecy about the END of their Kingdom,

or the TWO subsequent "Kingdoms of Heaven".  Saints living during the Christian Kingdom were never meant to understand fulfillment

of prophecies about the END of their Kingdom, or the subsequent (4th) Great Tribulation "Kingdom of Heaven".  However, it was always

God's Plan the Last Saints "shall understand" these "unsealed" mysteries - during the current "time-of-the-end" and/or "Season and Time".

Therefore, we now have Biblical validation the "Kingdom of Heaven" represents the (2nd) Jewish Kingdom [Matthew 22:2-7]

... and we now have Biblical validation that the "Kingdom of Heaven" represents the (3rd) Christian Kingdom [Matthew 13, 8 verses]

... and we now have Biblical validation that the "Kingdom of Heaven" represents the (4th) Great Tribulation Kingdom [Mat. 25:1-13]

... and we now have Biblical validation that the "Kingdom of Heaven" represents the (5th) Eternal Kingdom [Matthew 5, 7, 8 & 19]

Make no mistake... it was GOD (not us) that specifically NAMED four of the five "Kingdoms of Heaven" on earth.

Any denomination, church or pastor that cannot harmonize this reality is (at best) only preaching some partial-truth.

When we read passages about the "Kingdom of Heaven" in Matthew 22:2 the Scripture is talking about the "wheat and tares"

living in the (2nd) Jewish Kingdom.  When we read about the "Kingdom of Heaven" in Matthew 13 the Scripture is talking about

the "wheat and tares" living in the (3rd) Christian Kingdom. When we read  passages about the "Kingdom of Heaven" in Matthew 25

the Scripture is talking about the "wheat and tares" living in the (4th) Great Tribulation Kingdom.  And when we read passages about

the "Kingdom of Heaven" in Matthew chapters 5, 7, 8 and 19, the Scriptures are talking about the (5th) Eternal "Kingdom of Heaven".

 

                                      -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As Daniel's prophecies reveal, there are four temporal "Kingdoms of Heaven" on earth before the (5th) eternal "Kingdom of Heaven".

It was JESUS that specifically NAMED the (2nd) Jewish "Kingdom of Heaven" [Mat 22:2] and was JESUS that specifically NAMED

the (3rd) Christian "Kingdom of Heaven" [several verses in Matthew 13], it's JESUS that specifically NAMED the (4th) Great Tribulation

"Kingdom of Heaven" [Mat 25:1]... and it's JESUS that specifically NAMED the (5th) Eternal "Kingdom of Heaven" [Mat 5, 7, 8 & 19]

 

Any preacher who refuses to teach what Jesus specifically NAMED is only showing the "fruit" of intentionally IGNORING Scriptures.  Real saints (the saved "wheat/sheep") within the church never intentionally ignore Scriptures - because they contradict their doctrines...

real saints will gladly modify any doctrine they hold until it harmonizes with all related passages.  The decision to intentionally ignore

(or refuse to preach) Scriptures where JESUS specifically NAMED these separate-and-distinct "Kingdoms of Heaven" is exclusively

the "fruit" of unsaved "tares" in the church.  It was Jesus that taught the "wheat" and "tares" can always be known by their "fruit".

The Biblical and Historical Truth is

(1)  Saints living during the Jewish Kingdom conflated prophecies about events in subsequent Kingdoms because it was impossible

for them to understand the context provided by Daniel's "sealed" prophecies... as they remained "sealed" until the "time-of-the-end".

As a result, Jews are still waiting to "see" fulfillment of prophecies related to the END of their (2nd) Jewish "Kingdom of Heaven". 

(2)  Likewise, Saints living in the (3rd) Christian "Kingdom of Heavenalso conflated prophecies about events occurring during

the subsequent (4th) Great Tribulation "Kingdom of Kingdom" (and the following "Season and Time"), because it was impossible

for them to understand the context of Daniel's "sealed" prophecies.  Therefore, all the Christians who were NOT "harvested" into the

Fourth "Kingdom of Heaven" are still waiting to "see" the fulfillment of prophecies related to the END of their "Kingdom of Heaven".

Just like those left-behind in the Jewish Kingdom... those left-behind in the Christian Kingdom are still waiting to "seefulfillment

of prophecies related to the END of their "Kingdom of Heaven".  As the Bible PROMISED long ago [Daniel 12:8-10 and Matthew 24:15, 33],

the key to understanding fulfillment of end-time prophecy was "seeing" the context provided by Daniel's four "Kingdoms of Heaven".

But understanding of those mysteries could not be known (by any Saint) until the current "time-of-the-end" and/or "Season and Time".

Only the Last Saints (the "wise virgins") are able to "understand" Daniel's prophecies and "see" fulfillment of Great Tribulation "signs".

That is what the Bible PROMISED... and that is what actually occurred in history ("reality").

Footnote #3:  Some men were NEVER MEANT to be saved

While the Lord Jesus Christ specifically NAMED four (of the five) "Kingdoms of Heaven" on earth and, while History (aka, "reality")

confirms each of these Kingdoms, there's a popular heresy in the church today that anyone and everyone has the potential of being saved.

While this contradicts what the Bible teaches about the NATURE of the Atonement (which we address in Footnote #4 in Chapter 5) it's

important to establish that some men were NEVER MEANT to be saved in EACH of the four (temporal) "Kingdoms of Heaven" above.

(1)  During the (1st) Pre-Flood "Kingdom of Heaven"

 

 

The Bible does not offer a lot of information about who was saved.  So, rather than speculating on the salvation of people,

other than Enoch and Noah, let's just look at who was NEVER MEANT to be saved.  And that included the entire world

at the time of Noah's Flood, with the exception of only eight souls.  Clearly teaching a doctrine that anyone and everyone

could be saved during the (1st) Pre-Flood "Kingdom of Heaven" is a blatant heresy, that does not even pass the giggle test.

1Pet 3:20   Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah,

                  while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water
 

                                                    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(2)  During the (2nd) Jewish "Kingdom of Heaven"

 

 

The Bible shows MANY Jews that were saved, like Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.  For the sake of brevity we will only focus on those three (although the Bible lists dozens of others), because this section is not focused on the people who were meant to be saved... it's focused on those who were NEVER MEANT to be saved.

Mat 8:11    And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with

                  Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the Kingdom of Heaven.

It's appropriate to now state the obvious... MOST men living during the Old Testament days were NEVER MEANT to be saved,

simply because they were not Jews.  With only a couple of exceptions, God saved ONLY Jews in the Jewish "Kingdom of Heaven".

That Biblical fact demonstrates that the majority of the world in the Old Testament days were NEVER MEANT to be saved.  And

any church or preacher teaching all men and every man had the "potential" of being saved - contradicts the Bible, and is incorrect.

Moreover, the New Testament reveals that MANY (most) of the Jews (living before the Cross) were NEVER MEANT to be saved.

Jesus explained [Mk 4:11-12] they were never meant to "see" or to "hear" or to "understand" lest they should be "converted" and their sins

would be "forgiven".  Regardless of what any church or preacher says... all those Jews were (explicitly) NEVER MEANT to be saved.

Mar 4:11   And He [Jesus] said unto them [His disciples], Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the Kingdom of God:

                  but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables: 12  That seeing they may see, and not perceive;

                  and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be

                  forgiven them. 

Jesus explained [Jn 10:26] the Jews who did not believe Him were NOT part of "His Sheep"... they had no "potential" to be saved.

Jesus explained [Jn 8:44] the Jews who did not believe Him are of their father, the Devil, and they remain captive to do Satan's will,

they had no "potential" to be saved.  Jesus demonstrated [Jn 6:65-66] the Jews who abandoned Him, after realizing He was preaching salvation by "election", were NEVER MEANT to be saved. (Information on salvation by "election" in Footnote #5, in Chapter #5) 

Joh 10:26    But ye believe not, because ye are not of My sheep, as I said unto you. 
 

Joh 8:44      Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning,

                    and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own:

                    for he is a liar, and the father of it. 
 

Joh 6:65     And He said, Therefore said I unto you, that NO MAN can come unto Me, except it were given unto him of My Father
                  66  
From that time MANY of His disciples went back, and walked no more with Him.

Moreover, Jesus was very clear that many Jews, in His day, were NEVER MEANT to be saved.  He explained that NO MAN could

come to Him unless the Father first "draws" them, and He would raise them on the last day [Jn 6:44].  Jesus taught that ALL MEN that

the Father draws "shall come" to Him, and He would raise them on the last day [Jn 6:37].  And Jesus taught the reason He came to earth

was to save ALL MEN the Father gave to Him (all the elect) and He would lose NONE of them, but raise them on the last day [Jn 6:39].

Joh 6:44      NO MAN can come to Me, except the Father which hath sent Me DRAW HIM:

                    and I will raise him up at the last day. 
 

Joh 6:37      ALL THAT the Father giveth Me SHALL COME to Me;

                    and him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out. 
 

Joh 6:39      And this is the Father's will which hath sent Me, that of all which he hath given Me

                    I SHOULD LOSE NOTHING, but should raise it up again at the last day. 

So Jesus was VERY CLEAR that the reason He came to earth was to be the Savior of ALL MEN the Father gave Him (elected)

and He would lose NONE of "His Sheep".  Conversely, Jesus did not come to be the Savior of "children of Satan" or ANY MAN

the Father had not elected.  Therefore, the heresy taught in most churches today, that all men and every man has the "potential"

to be saved, is just a man-made heresy that contradicts these Words of Christ... and DOZENS of other related Scriptures.
 

                                                    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(3)  During the (3rd) Christian "Kingdom of Heaven"

 

 

The Bible shows MANY Jews and Gentiles are saved as that was the PURPOSE of the "A-Millennial" Kingdom (Church Age),

when the Saints "lived and reigned" with Christ... for them to "seek and save" all the lost sheep.  In fact, the Christian Kingdom

could not END, and the (4th) Great Tribulation "Kingdom of Heaven" could not BEGIN, until all the lost sheep had been saved

[Rev 7:1-3], the "testimony" of the New Testament Church Age was "finished" [Rev 11:7], the Holy Spirit was "taken out of the way"

[2Thess 2:6-9] and Satan was "loosened" to RULE over the Last Saints during his "Little Season".  (See more details in Chapter 9)

Note: the two candlesticks and the two olive trees represent the New Testament church (not two individual men).

It's not hard to demonstrate that MANY men living during the New Testament days were NEVER MEANT to be saved.  

 

 

First, if we understand the Providence of God, we know (as Jesus taught in John 6, above) that He was sent to save all men that

the Father gave Him - and He will lose NONE of those elected, then we can know absolutely that all the people who lived and died

during the New Testament Era who were not Christian - had NO POTENTIAL for being saved, since Jesus it the ONLY WAY to God.

This means the majority of the world were NEVER MEANT to be saved, including all Jews, Moslems, Buddhists, Hindus, Atheists,

Agnostics, Humanists, etc.  The notion that all men and every man had the "potential" to be saved in the Church Age is pure heresy.

Secondly, Jesus taught [Mat 13:24-30, 36-43], that the Christian "Kingdom of Heaven" contains both saved "wheat/sheep" sown by God,

and destined to eternal life, and many unsaved "tares/goats" sown by Satan and destined to the SAME FIRE prepared for Satan [Mat 25:41]

This again proves the majority of the world was NEVER MEANT to be saved - even within the context of the Christian church, because unsaved "tares/goats", sown by Satan and destined to eternal fire, cannot suddenly decide to become saved "wheat/tares" sown by God.  

This Biblical reality, again, demonstrates the heresy of teaching that all men and every man had the "potential" to become saved.
 

Mat 13:30    Let both [wheat and tares] grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers,

                    Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into My barn. 

Mat 13:40    As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. 
                    41  The Son of man shall send forth His angels, and they shall gather out of His Kingdom all things that offend,

                    and them which do iniquity; [all the tares sown by Satan] 42  And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall

                    be wailing and gnashing of teeth. 43  Then shall the righteous [wheat sown by God] shine forth as the sun in the

                    Kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Mat 25:41   Then shall He say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from Me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire,

                    prepared for the devil and his angels
 

Regardless of what your favorite denomination or pastor teaches, it is a FALSE gospel, a heresy from hell, to teach that every man

and any man has the "potential" of salvation.  The Bible teaches [Rom 9:11-13] that God HATES some men before they are born. And

the Bible teaches [Rom 9:15-16] that it is not a matter of what man wants or what man does... it's ONLY a matter of who God decides

to have mercy on.  The Bible teaches [Rom 9:18] that God has mercy on some and HARDENS others.  The Bible teaches [Rom 9:19-23]

that God CREATES some men to be vessels of mercy and He CREATES other men to be vessels of destruction.  And, so we see,

just like the (1st) Pre-Flood Kingdom and the (2nd) Jewish Kingdom, during the (3rd) Christian Kingdom, it is "another gospel",

a heresy from hell, to teach that all men and every man had the "potential" to become saved.

                                               -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(4)  During the (4th) Great Tribulation "Kingdom of Heaven" [Mat 25:1-13]

The Bible demonstrates, in even much starker terms, that some men were NEVER MEANT to be saved.  This is because

the (4th) Great Tribulation "Kingdom of Heaven(also shown as the Revelation Beast and Daniel's Fourth Beast) consists exclusively 

of the "ten virgins" that "went forth" from the (3rd) Christian "Kingdom of Heaven", following the Anti-Christ, and preaching his Gospel.

These "ten virgins" are called "ten Kings" and "ten Horns" who are RULED by the "Little Horn" (Anti-Christ) in Daniel 7:24-25, and they

are (again) called the "ten Kings" and "ten Horns" who all "agree to give their Kingdom to the [Revelation] Beast" in Revelation 17:12-17.

In each case, they represent the LAST "wheat and tareson earth... the fourth temporal "Kingdom" on earth before the Lord Jesus Returns to establish the (5th) Eternal "Kingdom of Heaven".

These "ten virgins" consist of both "wise virgins" (the saved "wheat/sheep") and "foolish virgins" (the unsaved "tares/goats"). 

The "wise virginsare taken into the "Marriage" of the Bridegroom (Jesus) and the "Door was Shut" while the "foolish virgins"

were left behind [Mat 25:10].  The POINT is: as with every other "Kingdom of Heaven", the unsaved "tares/goats" (sown by Satan) 

could not just decide to become saved "wheat/sheep" (elected by God).  The "foolish virgins" had ZERO "potential" to be saved.

                                                -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------  

The doctrine that every man, and any man, has the "potential" of salvation is a heresy from HELL that denies the Sovereignty of God.

Men who are unsaved "tares" (sown by Satan) cannot just decide to be saved "wheat" (sown by God).  Men God HATES before birth

cannot just decide to become LOVED.  Men CREATED to be "vessels of destruction" cannot simply decide to be "vessels of mercy".

The "foolish virgins" of the Great Tribulation "Kingdom of Heaven" could not just decide to become "wise virgins".  It's just a LIE,

a heresy, to say that an unsaved "tare" in ANY of the "Kingdoms of Heaven" could just decide to suddenly become a saved "wheat".

It is a heresy designed to allow churches and preachers to proclaim "Jesus LOVES you"... all you need to do is repent.

It is a heresy designed to teach MEN are sovereign in the salvation process.  That's NOT the Gospel of the Bible.

And Galatians 5:20-21 assures us that NO HERETIC can ever enter into the eternal "Kingdom of God".

Some men (sown by God) were MEANT to be saved, and Christ will lose NONE of "His Sheep". 

Some men (sown by Satan) were NEVER MEANT to be saved.  They have no "potential" to be saved.  

And THAT is a major part of the Gospel of the Bible.
