“And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.”
Given that those who imagine themselves to be the Masters of the Universe, who claim to value KNOWLEDGE above almost everything else (other than self-interest), it is sometimes speculated why these shadowy figures do NOT pursue the source of ALL KNOWLEDGE: the omniscient (all-knowing) God Almighty Himself.
After all, it would take someone CONSUMED with hubris to believe he had all knowledge necessary to carry out his grandiose end times designs WITHOUT tapping into the ultimate source of knowledge about EVERYTHING.
A few days ago, it was written in these pages
It is extremely fortunate that, in His complete and total mercy, God Himself will save some of this group.
Because He can.
Perhaps God enjoys seeing the complete turnaround that takes place in a person once he has the complete story?
—The Modern Relationship with Sin, End Times Prophecy Headlines: November 23, 2020
After spending a few days thinking and discussing this assertion, a few other thoughts–which fall under the heading of “speculation” were determined.
1- Perhaps God, instead of enjoying “the complete turnaround in a person once he has the complete story,” enjoys the utter and eternal GRATITUDE of one who NOW understands he was headed for complete and total perdition EXCEPT for God’s mercy and grace.
2- Perhaps God, enjoys the stunned understanding of one who NOW realizes that he did NOTHING to deserve or otherwise earn this mercy.
3- Perhaps God, because He loves His entire creation–even those who hate Him–enjoys saving that utterly wretched piece of creation from destruction. Because He can.
And that is a great flaw of the deceived: they believe they KNOW things that just aren’t so.
“What gets us into trouble is not what we don’t know. It’s what we know for sure that just ain’t so.”
–attributed to Mark Twain and others
And that is perhaps the GREATEST flaw of the MOST-DECEIVED: they believe they have knowledge that other men do not possess, but what they DO have is INCOMPLETE KNOWLEDGE, which proves to be the undoing of the great majority of such men.
Once these men become aware of this incomplete information–which they do NOT possess at present–their ENTIRE outlook is likely to change.
A lot of ‘maybe’s.’
A lot of ‘perhaps’s.’
A LOT of speculation.
As the reader was earlier warned.
Here is something that is NOT based on speculation: believers should pray that such men–deceived by their belief that they possess secret, hidden knowledge–develop a relationship with the REAL, truthful knowledge of their Creator BEFORE it is too late.
“Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven. Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his: And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding”
DOES the reader believe there is much that man will not learn until Jesus Christ returns?
WHY or WHY NOT?
It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.
DOES the reader believe he is saved?
DOES the reader believe he is NOT saved?

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
