“Oh, the unspeakable greatness of that exchange,—the Sinless One is condemned, and he who is guilty goes free; the Blessing bears the curse, and the cursed is brought into blessing; the Life dies, and the dead live; the Glory is whelmed in darkness, and he who knew nothing but confusion of face is clothed with glory.” Trailady

Hello brother D_______.
  I’m glad to hear from you. It’s true that many have never known true surrender, yet believe they have. But, Jesus’ prayer, “Father forgive them, for they know not what they do” must be the result of this lack of true experience in repentance and surrender. So, we must carefully and tenderly treat the pervasive misconceptions of real experiential religion, since true surrender is a mystery to everyone until they stumble into it.

“God that made the world and all things therein, ...hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; that they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after Him, and find Him, though He be not far from every one of us: for in Him we live, and move, and have our being.” (Acts 17:24-28).

  But, because the chances of having real repentance and surrender and conversion are greater to those who have access to the Law of God, which is God’s schoolmaster to give us a need for a Saviour from sin, then those with access to the greater sources of light in the Law, the Bible, and the Spirit of Prophecy counsels, have less of an excuse for missing the experience of repentance and surrender and conversion. The Judge of all the earth is weighing everyone’s lack of conversion in relation to their access to light. SDAs have the gravest situation before God. Protestants are next, then Catholic people, and the heathen nations, and lastly the animists.

  But, when the SDAs wake up and join with the awakened Protestants to give the gospel to the whole world for a witness to all nations, then everyone will have access to the light, and salvation will no longer be a mystery. They will have to make their decisions to accept the condemnation of sin, wrestling with that condemnation, then repentance, surrender, and conversion.

  And until the Latter Rain, the Lord will be merciful and gracious. Amen!

“The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.
He will not always chide: neither will He keep His anger for ever.
He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is His mercy toward them that fear him.
As far as the east is from the west, so far hath He removed our transgressions from us.
Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear Him.
For He knoweth our frame; He remembereth that we are dust.” (Ps. 103:8-14).
