With Jesus’ sacrifice as The Last and Lasting Passover Lamb, given for our redemption, His death made possible the reading of His Will. Since Jesus’ Will was/is/ and always will be God’s Will, His crucifixion put that Will into full effect.
To read God’s Will accurately, however, we need to turn to God’s Word:
God’s Will is for no one to perish. God wants us to turn from ungodly ways.
“The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance,” 2 Peter 3:9, New King James Version.
God’s Will is for everyone to be saved. We agree with His Will – and help to put it into effect– as we pray for one another.
“…I ask that supplications, prayers, petitions, and thanksgivings be offered for everyone… for all in authority, that we may lead a quiet and tranquil life in all devotion and dignity. This is good and pleasing to God our savior, who wills everyone to be saved and to come to knowledge of the truth,” 1 Timothy 2:1-4, New American Bible (Revised Edition.)
God’s Will is for us to trust Him, no matter what!
“In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you,” 1 Thessalonians 5:18, King James Version.
A Will does not go into effect until death occurs.
God’s Will went into effect with the death of Jesus Christ, Who overcame death to save us for Eternal Life in the Lord.
God’s Will is for all to live in God forever.
“For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day,” John 6:40, New International Version.
God Wills to save the world!
“For God loved the world in this way: He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world that He might condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him,” John 3:16-17, Holman Christian Standard Bible.
