We value God’s plan to save every individual who will yield to Him. Every individual, regardless of race, national origin or gender, will, in accordance with God’s plan, have the opportunity to be called by God and to hear and respond to the good news of the Kingdom of God and to the testimony of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection. What people learn about God’s ways today may help them come to repentance with less difficulty at that time.

Therefore, the gospel of the Kingdom of God is a message directed to all of mankind. God’s plan explicitly provides for every human being from every nation to eventually have an opportunity for membership in His family—according to His timetable and will. As Peter said, “How true it is that God does not show favoritism but accepts men from every nation who fear him and do what is right” (Acts 10:34-35 Acts 10:34-35 [34] Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: [35] But in every nation he that fears him, and works righteousness, is accepted with him.

Jesus Christ is now preparing, in His role as our High Priest, a people who will serve in His coming Kingdom (John 14:1-3 John 14:1-3 [1] Let not your heart be troubled: you believe in God, believe also in me. [2] In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. [3] And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you to myself; that where I am, there you may be also.

). He foretold that for His followers’ sake the terrible times ahead will be cut short and humanity will be saved from extinction (Matthew 24:22 Matthew 24:22And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.

). Because of their faithfulness now, they will share in Christ’s future rule over the earth (Revelation 3:21 Revelation 3:21To him that overcomes will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

).
