God is not trying to save the whole world now, but He is rather busy raising sons through whom He will save the world like the first born son Jesus.
“Acts 15:12-18, Ephesians 2:4-8, Romans 8:20-23”
He who created the universe by just the spoken word, He would have no problem saving the whole world with the same process if He wanted to. So He is not failing. But He is rather busy raising the replica of His son Jesus Christ. And these sons are the ones that understood that they are saved by grace, that they in turn will show the same to the rest of mankind in the ages to come.
“And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
That in the AGES to come, He might shew the exceeding riches of his GRACE in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus” Ephesians 2:6-7.
So friends, while it looks like God is failing as you look at the things going on around the globe, let it be noted that the Father is at work preparing his sons behind the scene.
Note it that the five-fold equipping ministry of Ephesians 4 cannot produce the sons of God. They are set in place UNTILL, and so can only reproduce themselves in other ministries. By that I mean raising other sphere of ministry gifts for it is only possible to produce the same likes of themselves as every seed is in itself. Genesis 1:11. There was no intermediary between God and Adam as a son in the Garden. It was a relationship between that of a father and son. Therefore, the five-fold ministry is a temporary arrangement, just like the law was, until the sons are revealed. And the sons will reproduce themselves in other sons just as Christ is reproducing Himself in other sons, hence we see that creation is waiting for the manifestations of the sons of God who shall stand to redeem creation.
The true qualification for these sets of sons will be the ability to extend mercy to mankind at the end. He who doesn’t understand the role mercy played in his salvation will not be part of this new move of God on the earth in the ages to come. For you cannot be a king without being a priest. It is only the combination of the king/Priest (Revelation 5:10) that can manifest true dominion.
