I met Eliyah just a few months ago and she with her family have become fast friends, as only spiritual kinsman can be. She and her husband Kai, love the Lord with all their hearts and have been of great encouragement and support to me as I share the "Real Good News" within a number of venues. Eliyah has shared some writings on our other blog "SONSHINE" and God willing will be a contributor here at JH&Christ. Eliyah and Kai have four children under the age of eight. What a blessing to know there will be four souls taught from an early age that Our Heavenly Father's love and and mercy is extended to all his children and none will be lost. May God enrich your life as you read Eliyah's testimony. She and her husband have visited our valley before and have a real heart for the people of Jackson Hole.

Good morning my brother,

I am going to share how I came to the understanding of "Universal Salvation". Honestly, I do not like using labels such as "Universal Salvation" or "Universal Reconciliationist" or any other "Universal" label....for I have seen how these words are interpreted differently by many people. So instead I would like to use the biblical term of the Law of Jubilee as opposed to the Law of Redemption. In scripture the word 'land' not only represents an actual piece of property but it is a type/shadow that represents a person's life. Leviticus 25:23 states that ALL LAND IS THE LORD's.... just as in Psalms 24:1 states "The earth is the LORD'S, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein."

In referring to the Law of Redemption and the Law of Jubilee, Lev. 25:23-28 states... "The land, moreover, shall not be sold permanently, for the land is Mine; for you are but aliens and sojourners with Me. Thus for every piece of your property, you are to provide for the redemption of the land. If a fellow countryman of yours becomes so poor he has to sell part of his property, then his nearest kinsman is to come and buy back what his relative has sold. Or in case a man has no kinsman, but so recovers his means as to find sufficient for its redemption, then he shall calculate the years since its sale and refund the balance to the man to whom he sold it, and so return to his property. But if he has not found sufficient means to get it back for himself, then what he has sold shall remain in the hands of its purchaser until the year of Jubilee; but at the Jubilee it shall revert, that he may return to his property."

So we see that "The Land, moreover, shall not be sold permanently, for the land is Mine.." I have stated earlier the usage of the word 'land' is a prophetic type/shadow of humanity.

When Adam sinned the curse of death was given. His 'land' was cursed. He had no power to redeem or buy back what he himself had lost. So God made a way where Adam could be restored back to his ESTATE... (the state of being CLOTHED WITH THE GLORY OF GOD and having FELLOWSHIP RESTORED with God). God sent His son Jesus Christ as the Kinsmen Redeemer to buy back what Adam had lost. What was the price that Jesus paid? He paid with HIS LIFE. He was the substitute that paid the price of the curse of death. "For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive." 1 Cor 15:23.
That word ALL means ALL. Many throughout the ages have received Jesus Christ as their KINSMAN REDEEMER. They have received by faith the free gift of salvation that was given to them when Jesus died on the cross for their sins. There are others for various reasons that have not received the atoning work of Jesus Christ. Many have never heard the news that their Kinsman Redeemer has set them free from the curse of death, from the curse of being separated from God, that they now have been REDEEMED to enter back into their inheritance. There are also those that have heard the news and through stubbornness and self will have rejected their Kinsman redeemer's free gift. For both of these groups of people the LAW OF JUBILEE is still in effect. Does the Law of Jubilee do away with the price of the Kinsman Redeemer? No! Every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord of ALL. There is no going around the CROSS. All those that will enter into their inheritance in the JUBILEE of all creation will see that Jesus Christ WAS and IS their Kinsman Redeemer. They will acknowledge that He is Lord. This acknowledgement will take place freely, willingly, and joyfully due to the work that the Saviour and the cross has done in the heart of that once stubborn individual. HalleluYah!

Stephen Jones writes... "The law of Jubilee is the basis of forgiveness and grace. It is the purpose and goal of the law itself. It compels a climax of earth history and a full end of the dominion of darkness and sin.What a glorious promise! The Jubilee is the law of grace. No matter how far a man goes into debt, the Jubilee will set him free. All creation waits in anticipation of this Jubilee. It is the goal of history and the ultimate purpose of God. The law of Jubilee on every level obtains its power by the blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross, as we read in 1 John 2:1 and 2,2 My little children, I am writing these things to you that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous; and He Himself is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world."

I came to this understanding through the revelation of the Holy Spirit. I have not always had this understanding for I was one to believe that if a person rejected Christ in this life than there was no hope for that person in the next life. The Lord was gracious to me in revealing the truth through scripture. He spoke to me these simple words... "I am now going to take you on a journey INTO MY LOVE'.... and that was almost two years ago. This wonderful journey has opened up my eyes to so many things. I have learned the TRUTH about the origin of the false teaching of 'everlasting torment'. What I have thought to be cornerstones of the 'Christian faith' I have learned are really the carnal teachings of man not based in scripture at all. I was one to celebrate Christmas, Easter, and thought that Hell was of God.....all of these have their origins in Paganism and are not found in scripture at all. What is found in scripture are not man-made holidays but HOLY DAYS that point to the prophetic picture of Jesus Christ and the RESTORATION of ALL THINGS! I also want to make it perfectly clear that NO ONE can come to the FINAL JUBILEE of all creation through another door. There is only one door and that is Jesus Christ. He is the way, the truth , and the life and no one can come to the Father but through Him.

So for all you black sheep out there that have felt like you were going crazy because you have never fit in with the 'church crowd' and there were many things that just didn't sit 'right' with you regarding Hell and may other things.....I want you to know that you have a place here at Jackson Hole and Christ. We love you and welcome you. We love you because Christ loves you and WILL NEVER GIVE UP ON YOU. His love doesn't stop on this side of the grave....for nothing can separate you from His can't and death can't.....He will keep reaching and reaching for you and WILL NEVER GIVE UP ON YOU.
You have a home here. We will do our best to answer any questions you might have and if we don't know the answers we will tell you we don't. We trust that He who started a GOOD WORK in you will FINISH that work. For you are HIS WORKMANSHIP!

May the Lord bless you and Keep you and make His face to shine upon you and give you peace!

His bondslave,
