Shelby - what happens to an unbeliever like me? Should I fear my destiny?
Absolutely, not, dear Cantleave (the greatest of love and peace to you!), if you know love... perfectly. Because perfect love casts ALL fear outside. Love COVERS a multitude of transgressions... and love... is the Law's fulfillment. So why there are indeed ones who will live by means of having belonged to Christ, his brothers... there are others... like you, dear one... who will live because of the love you showed to such brothers... including me.
The Most Holy One of Israel is not unrighteous... and He will not forget the acts of righteous done toward those who belong to Him, through Christ. Does one have to know who such are to fall into this category? Contrary to the false teaching of the WTBTS, absolutely not. As someone wrote, there are some who have entertained angels although it was unknown to them. But one can fulfill this obligation simply by doing good to others, including one's enemies. So that, if one does good to ALL... then one surely has covered one's bases, yes?
Bottom line, all one needs to do to get INTO the kingdom... is show love toward all, including his/her enemies. By doing so, they WILL show love to Christ and his brothers, sooner or later. And these are the "sheep" (who are separated from the "goats")... and those who Christ and his brothers rule over (and please, PLEASE note that such rule is NOT in the way earthling man does it, where one dominates over another, but of righteousness, meaning the rulership of Christ is one of service... to time indefinite...).
One CAN, however, be granted the "greater" hope... which is not about being on earth vs. in heaven... or in a flesh body vs. a spirit one, but simply a different "position" in the "temple" of God (i.e., Court of Gentiles vs. Court of Israel vs. Court of Priests, etc.)... where ALL will be. Personally, so long as I am IN the temple... AT the table... IN the kingdom... I truly do not care where.
I bid you peace, dear Cantleave... and ears to hear when the Spirit and the Bride say to YOU:
"Come! Take 'life's water'... the holy spirit of God, which water... the "oil of exultation"... grants to the one receiving a choosing... and thus, a token, of that place as a "PRIEST" in the "temple"... FREE!"
YOUR servant and a slave of Christ,
