Why don’t you know where those verses are?
The salvation of angels is not a secret. We’ve just been too deaf to hear what the Bible screamed at us over and over again.
Things are only a secret until they are revealed. So why does no one know this today? Because you can’t teach someone who already has all the answers, and most Christians act like they do!
Ephesians 1:9-10 (Weymouth) when He made known to us the secret of His will. And this is in harmony with God’s merciful purpose for the government of the world when the times are ripe for it — the purpose which He has cherished in His own mind of restoring the whole creation to find its one Head in Christ; yes, things in Heaven and things on earth, to find their one Head in Him.
Think about what that actually says! Read the words, not the tape you’ve heard when this verse has been read to you in the past. What does it REALLY say??
It says God created the WHOLE creation. How can that NOT include angels? And we know that ALL have sinned, man and angels alike have fallen short of the glory of God!
And this verse tells us that God’s merciful purpose which He has made known to us is to restore that WHOLE CREATION to be a part of ONE BODY, the body of CHRIST! Specifically those things in HEAVEN which have sinned!
Colossians 1:16, 20 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: ...And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile ALL THINGS unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or THINGS IN HEAVEN.
What do you want from God?? How much clearer could He have said it? How SPECIFIC did He need to be? He plainly – and I mean PLAINLY – said ALL THINGS are supposed to be reconciled BY THE BLOOD OF THE CROSS... things on Earth, AND THINGS IN HEAVEN!
And in case you were unclear on what “all things” really meant, Paul went on to specifically describe those things that are included! Visible humans AND invisible angels! Men who sit on thrones and the angels who stand behind them! (Daniel 11:1). Everything He created, including men AND angels, can be reconciled by the blood of His cross!
How much clearer could God be? Christ died so that ALL have an opportunity to be reconciled to Him! Because, of course He would have! How else can He be a merciful God who desires that ALL should come to repentance!! (2 Peter 3:9).
Why wouldn’t He want the angels, AND THE DEVILS, to come to repentance as well, if they will repent and do righteousness? Is God looking forward to killing anyone for their sins? Ezekiel 18:32. How can that not include angels?
Colossians 1:21-22 And you, [in heaven or on Earth!] that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled In the body of his flesh through death, to present you [man AND sinful angels] holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:
This makes sense, because it’s what the God we serve SHOULD have done! Of COURSE He would have taught the gospel to ANYONE who would listen, man or angel alike, and the Bible says He already did!
Verse 23 If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of THE GOSPEL, which ye have heard, and which was preached to EVERY CREATURE which is under heaven...
This no secret doctrine, hidden in awkward translations and dead languages! This is something the Bible is FULL of! What else do you suppose the Bible says that you haven’t heard?
