The Bread of God

“Then they said to Him, Then what miraculous sign do You do that we may see and may believe You? What do You work? Our fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, as it is written He gave them bread out of Heaven to eat. Then Jesus said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, Moses has not given you the bread out of Heaven, but My Father gives you the true bread out of Heaven. For the bread of God is He coming down out of Heaven and giving life to the world. Then they said to Him, Lord, always give us this bread. Jesus said to them, I am the Bread of life; the one coming to Me will not at all hunger, and the one believing into Me will not thirst, never!” (John 6:30-35)

The necessary blasphemous implications of believing that Jesus Christ died for everyone without exception are legion. This doctrine of devils necessarily DENIES that Jesus is the Bread of Life actually “giving life to the world.”

“I am the Bread of life. Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness and died. This is the Bread coming down out of Heaven, that anyone may eat of it and not die. I am the Living Bread that came down from Heaven. If anyone eats of this Bread, he will live forever. And indeed the bread which I will give is My flesh, which I will give for the life of the world. Then the Jews argued with one another, saying, How can this One give us his flesh to eat? Then Jesus said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, Except you eat the flesh of the Son of Man, and drink His blood, you do not have life in yourselves. The one partaking of My flesh and drinking of My blood has everlasting life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For My flesh is truly food, and My blood is truly drink. The one partaking of My flesh and drinking of My blood abides in Me, and I in him. Even as the living Father sent Me, and I live through the Father; also the one partaking Me, even that one will live through Me. This is the Bread which came down out of Heaven, not as your fathers ate the manna and died; the one partaking of this Bread will live forever” (John 6:48-58).

Those believing that Jesus Christ died for everyone without exception are DENYING that Christ’s flesh is truly food, and that His blood is truly drink. This disgusting doctrine carries with it the execrable implication that Christ remained accursed in perpetuity and in the grave His flesh underwent corruption, contrary to Acts 2:27 (and many other similar verses).

“Because of this I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God says, Jesus is a curse. And no one is able to say Jesus is Lord, except by the Holy Spirit” (1 Corinthians 12:3).

Those who believe that Jesus gave His life for everyone without exception are saying that Jesus is a curse. They do NOT speak by the Spirit of God since the Spirit of God glorifies Christ (John 16:13-14).

“Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us; for it has been written, Cursed is everyone having been hung on a tree; that the blessing of Abraham might be to the nations in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith” (Galatians 3:13-14).

Everyone for whom Christ died, without one exception, will without fail receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. Marc D. Carpenter writes:

“This leads to the primary significance and meaning of The Resurrection. The Resurrection of Jesus Christ is proof that God the Father was totally satisfied with the work of Jesus Christ on the cross. He was totally satisfied because Jesus Christ accomplished exactly what He set out to accomplish, which was the full salvation of everyone whom He came to save. Jesus Christ fully satisfied the demands of God’s law and justice on behalf of everyone for whom He died. Had Jesus Christ not fully accomplished salvation for everyone for whom He died, He would not have conquered death, and He would have remained in the grave. The reason Jesus Christ could not be held by death is that He had totally, absolutely defeated death in fully atoning for the sins of His people. If there is or will be even one person for whom Christ died who is suffering or will suffer the second death, then death was not defeated, and Jesus Christ was not raised as the victor over death. To truly believe and preach The Resurrection is to believe and preach the full, accomplished atonement of Jesus Christ with which God the Father was fully satisfied that was effectual to save everyone whom Christ represented. God the Father exalted Jesus Christ at His right hand as the Savior of His people who made full purification of their sins. There would have been no resurrection and no exaltation had there been even one person for whom Christ died who would end up in hell” (http://www.outsidethecamp.org/gospres.htm).

And:

“Related to this is the doctrine of quickening by the power of the resurrection and the identification of God’s people with Christ in His resurrection. Because of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, all for whom Jesus Christ died and rose again will be brought to newness of life through the resurrection power of Jesus Christ. There is not a single person for whom Jesus Christ died and rose again who will remain dead in his sins. The resurrection of Jesus Christ ensured that all whom He represented will be spiritually raised to a new life in Jesus Christ. Had Jesus Christ not been raised, then no one would be raised to new life, and all would remain totally depraved, dead in sin. To truly believe and preach The Resurrection is to believe and preach that all for whom Jesus Christ died and was raised will be raised to newness of life by the power of The Resurrection and will thus be set free from sin so they no longer live in sin and no longer serve sin” (Marc D. Carpenter; http://www.outsidethecamp.org/gospres.htm).

And one additional paragraph to conclude:

Consider the resurrection of the “christ” of universal atonement. The “christ” of universal atonement died for everyone without exception. Firstly, what does the resurrection of this “christ” signify? It signifies that their “god” was satisfied with less than full remission of sins; their “god” was satisfied with an “atonement” that did not actually accomplish the salvation of anyone, that did not fully satisfy law and justice, that was actually a failure for all whom this “christ” died who end up in hell. It signifies that death was not fully conquered, since many of those for whom this “christ” died will suffer the second death. Secondly, the resurrection of this “christ” did not ensure that all whom he represented will be spiritually raised to a new life. The power of this resurrection does not quicken all for whom this “christ” died and rose again. Millions for whom this “christ” died will never be brought from spiritual death to spiritual life. Thirdly, the resurrection of this “christ” did not ensure and guarantee that all whom he represented will be resurrected to everlasting life in heaven. This “christ” is not the firstfruit of all whom he represented. There are some for whom this “christ” died and rose again who will burn in hell for eternity. The resurrection of the “christ” of universal atonement is a sham, a fake, a fraud, a counterfeit (Marc D. Carpenter; http://www.outsidethecamp.org/gospres.htm).
