“And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.” John 12:32
The word here translated as “Draw” is the Greek “helkó”. It is also translated as: I drag, draw, pull, persuade, unsheathe. (http://biblehub.com/greek/1670.htm)
“Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.” 1 Timothy 2:6

“For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive” 1 Corinthians 15:22
“That is why we labor and strive, because we have put our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all people, and especially [NOT EXCLUSIVELY] of those who believe.” 1 Timothy 4:10
The love of God is so unfathomable, His wisdom is so unsearchable and His power is so efficacious that it is barely fulfilled in saving everyone!
The greatest revelation of God to date is Jesus the Christ. He is the image of the invisible God and He is our destiny. That is to say that we are being made exactly like Jesus because he is the first-born amongst many brethren.
The moment in Jesus’ life when He showed the character of the invisible God most was when he was on the cross, when he was being jeered at, given vinegar to drink and – despite and because of all that – He said “Forgive them Father for they know not what they do!”.
God’s love is shown to its full extent in His act of forgiving all of humanity at the moment when humanity is displaying its most wicked, malevolent and despicable side.
In fact this is a love that we can have trust in because despite knowing all our grotty little secrets He still sent His son – who came willingly – as a supplication, an offering, a sacrifice to us!
What was Jesus’ work on the cross? It was to take away the sin of the world.
Was Jesus successful in this? You bet he was successful! He even said before dying “It is finished!”. It’s done folks! All you got to do is sit back and watch the Father beam this realization into everyone’s lifes.
If the bride is the body of Christ and all that will be saved are going to be saved in this age then who are the bride and the spirit talking to here?
“And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.” Revelation 22:17
