Impartial Grace: Revelation 21

He will wipe away from them every tear from their eyes. Death will be no more; neither will there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain, any more. The first things have passed away.”

He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” He said, “Write, for these words of God are faithful and true.

(Revelation 21:4-5,emphasis added)

It does not matter if your theology is historical or futurist. It does not matter if you believe Jesus has already come or if He is coming again. No matter your eschatological theology He is “…making all things new.” What things? All things!

Universal reconciliation embraces these verses as literally true. Other doctrines want us to believe these verses do not apply to all people, but only to people who agree with those doctrines. Universal reconciliation teaches the believer and the rebel will be reconciled to Him. “All things will be made new.” The doctrine of eternal conscious torment, in particular, does not want us to believe “these words are trustworthy and true” on their face. The doctrine adds that every person during these “end days” will have already been chosen or has already chosen. All others are not among “all things made new.” All others are condemned by God, Who is love, to an eternal conscious torment.

Universal reconciliation is Impartial Grace.
