Good news.

The orthodox Christian teaching on eternal punishment in hell is completely false. The apostles never taught this. The teaching of the Church for the first three centuries was predominantly the doctrine of universal reconciliation and the restoration of all things. It was only when the Church became an institution of the State that doctrines became dogmas created to control believers and eventually heretics were executed. This is all the work of the adversary of God who took up his seat in the Church and permeated her with leavened doctrines designed to perpetuate his control.

These events were prophesied in the Kingdom parables of Jesus because He knew that the Church of the past two thousand years would fail in her mission just as the first Church had failed in her mission. The final Church into which we are now transitioning will complete the work of restoration into the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth, the Paradise of God. Just as the crucifixion, resurrection and ascension of the Lord Jesus Christ had been predetermined and foretold in the Spring Feast of Passover, the Feast of Unleavened Bread and the Wave Sheaf offering so the coming of the Holy Spirit and the leavened nature of the second Church was foretold in the Feast of Weeks or Pentecost. The final Feasts of Trumpets and Tabernacles and the Day of Atonement remain to be completely fulfilled and their meaning was hidden.

However, this latter truth and others were revealed to the Church in the great revivals that began in a small Bible College in Saskatchewan, Canada in the Spring of 1948 and spread all over the world. These revelations given by the Holy Spirit were largely rejected by all the churches but they continued to be taught by scattered ministries around the world.

This all happened at the same time as the State of Israel was coming into being in Palestine. The doctrine of the State of Israel being the prophesied regathering of the ancient people of Israel and a harbinger of the second manifestation of the Lord Jesus Christ then took hold in the churches and the Lord gave them over to this strong delusion because they had rejected the truth.

Those who continued to believe in the revelations given by the Holy Spirit and to teach them were often driven from the churches and persecuted by their former brethren. This doctrine of universal reconciliation and the restoration of all things is clearly taught in the scriptures but due to the spiritual blindness that has been visited upon the churches by God it is still rejected by the majority of Christians. However this is a temporary condition and the time is near when this blindness will be healed and all believers will come to a knowledge of the Truth.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)
