Impartial Grace: I Chronicles

David prays:

Sing to Yahweh, all the earth! Display his salvation from day to day. Declare his glory among the nations, and his marvelous works among all the peoples. For great is Yahweh, and greatly to be praised. He also is to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the peoples are idols, but Yahweh made the heavens. Honor and majesty are before him. Strength and gladness are in his place.

Ascribe to Yahweh, you relatives of the peoples, ascribe to Yahweh glory and strength! Ascribe to Yahweh the glory due to his name. Bring an offering, and come before him. Worship Yahweh in holy array. Tremble before him, all the earth. The world also is established that it can’t be moved. Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice! Let them say among the nations, “Yahweh reigns!”

Let the sea roar, and its fullness! Let the field exult, and all that is therein! Then the trees of the forest will sing for joy before Yahweh, for he comes to judge the earth. Oh give thanks to Yahweh, for he is good, for his loving kindness endures forever.

( 1 Chronicles 16:23-34, emphasis added)

These are verses recording David’s praise and prayer to God. God is good! His love is ever strong for His creation. His mercy towards us never fails and never ends. The advocate of universal reconciliation preaches all who believe in Christ Jesus rejoice in God’s Holy Word just as David does here. These words were recorded hundreds of years prior to the Life of Christ. These verses constitute proof that God is Sovereign before the beginning of the ages to beyond the end of the ages. He is Sovereign over “all the earth.” The heavens are glad and everything in or upon the earth rejoices. The heavens and the earth and all they contain are established. God is Sovereign and He will judge everything on the earth, under the earth, in the sea or under the sea. All will bow to Him and declare with their mouths that He is Lord. “His loving kindness endures forever.” Universal reconciliation recognizes these verses for what they convey. His love is true; His love is for all; and, His love is eternal. This is Impartial Grace.
