How Many Will Be Saved?

Thank you for your kind words. As for the number of ‘scales,’ that we remove from peoples eyes, we may well see such a vision after the great white throne judgment. I most assuredly will not be before then:

Mat 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
Mat 24:37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Mat 24:38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
Mat 24:39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

There was no great revival “in the days of Noe.” Neither was there a great day of repentance in the days of Lot:

Luk 17:26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
Luk 17:27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.
Luk 17:28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
Luk 17:29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed [ them] all.
Luk 17:30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.

All of these words of our Lord are in responses to the disciples’ question,

Mat 24:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

My guess is that Christ knew whereof He spoke. Here is how He summed up these times we live in:

Luk 18:8 … When the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?

I have said it many times before: IF Christ had said ‘Remember Nineveh,’ Then I too, would say ‘Remember Nineveh.’ But that is not what He said. Instead he tells us “Remember Lot’s wife.” There was no great revival in the days of Noah or in the days or Lot. Many were called but few were chosen. So it is today.

Mat 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
Mat 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

This is all bad news for the flesh. But it is good news for the spirit and for all who are faithful to God’s Word. It is good news for the human race as a whole because when all is said and done, God “will have all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the Truth.”

I hope this gives you a realistic and scriptural perspective on what to expect in these last days.
