The Scope of God’s Redemptive Work

“The scope of God’s redemptive work in Messiah is ‘all nations’. The evidence of the divine working in salvation can be seen in the fact that the nations mentioned here [in Isaiah 2:1-4] are not being cajoled or coerced into coming, but rather they are depicted here as flowing upwards unto the mountain of the LORD’s house. The upward flow spoken of here testifies of the divine working in men’s hearts. The Father declared to the Son in Psalm 110: “Thy people shall be willing in the day of Thy power.” “Iniquity and transgression and sin” (Exod. 34:7) have now been put away from the face of God by the Lord Jesus Christ, so there is nothing that could possibly hinder men from coming unto Him, except for their unbelief and rejection of Him.” —Al Stoner
