God Will Ultimately Save The Majority of Humanity!
The Last Great Day of the Feast of Tabernacles reveals God’s plan
for the vast majority of humanity.  Ten resurrections, each 100 years
apart during "The Eighth Day" seems likely for all past generations.  
The number eight signifies a new beginning, which it would be, for
these resurrected past generations.  As God puts Israel first, it seems
highly likely that He will resurrect the past generations of Israel in the
first, or perhaps first few resurrections of “The Eighth Day” followed
by resurrections of the past generations of the Gentiles, in subsequent
restorations.

Acts 13:46 Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that
the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from
you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the
Gentiles.

However, the following verse tells us that after the first resurrection,
which begins the seventh millennium, "the rest of the dead lived not
again until the thousand years were finished".  This seems to prohibit
any further resurrections during the first 1000 years of Christ’s rule
on the earth.  God rests from all His work on the seventh day the
seventh 1000 years.  Perhaps it is worthy to note again that the first
resurrection is a better resurrection the resurrection of the Bride of
Christ.

Revelation 20:5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years
were finished.

It is interesting to observe that the bible speaks of a "first
resurrection"; however, one finds no mention of a "second
resurrection".  This leaves room for the speculation of a series of
resurrections, during the White Throne Judgment, for the innumerable
billions of people from past generations.  The first resurrection is for
the justified.  Subsequent resurrections are of the unjustified whom
God will give an opportunity for justification and there is a final
resurrection of damnation for the incorrigible.  This process would
include 12 resurrections: The first and better resurrection, 10
resurrections during the White Throne Judgment and the final
resurrection of damnation.

John 5:29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection
of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.

Some may object to this understanding based on the phrase "in that
day" in Luke 10:12 and similar verses of scripture, where one notes
that God will resurrect unjustified Israelites and Gentiles in the same
"day" and give them hope of justification.  However, the word "day"
in Greek can refer to time in general; and Peter informs us that a
"day" is 1000 years with God.  Therefore, anyone whom God
resurrects during the Last Great Day Millennium will have lived in the
same day.

Note that Christ did not send the disciples to the cities of the Gentiles
(Matthew 10:5), however, it would be more tolerable “in the day of
judgment” for Gentile cities than it would be for the Israelite cities
that rejected the Gospel of the Kingdom of God.  

Luke 10:12 But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable in that day for
Sodom, than for that city.

2 Peter 3:8  But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day [is]
with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

In other words, "The Eighth Day" will probably cover 1000 years.  If
the first 7 days of God's plan encompass 1000 years each, why would
"The Eighth Day" be of a different interval?

The following verse indicates that God will give each person in each
group 100 years to either allow the creation of a divine mind through
the indwelling of the holy spirit – following its lead rather than the
drive of the Adamic mind – or perish.

Isaiah 65:20 There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man
that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but
the sinner [being] an hundred years old shall be accursed.

The idea that prophecy predicts one general resurrection of past
generations – referred to as the second resurrection – came from the
preceding verse and the belief that “The Eighth Day” was 100 years
in duration, among some in the Church of God.  However, one should
have suspected this in error based on 2Peter 3:8 and the clear record
that the first 7 days of God’s plan were/will be 1000 years each.

Bishop Ussher’s Chronological System should not lead one astray.  
God does not give Ussher a position of infallibility.  According to
Ussher, we are now past the first six thousand years of humanity.  
However, according to God and the bible, some time still exists before
the dawn of the seventh day of rest – the 7th millennium of the plan of
salvation.  We can rest assured that God is never late.

2Peter 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with
the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness;
but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all
should come to repentance.

The truth is that the Christ will have to do an early intervention:

Matthew 24:22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh
be saved: but
for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.

Revelation 11:18 And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the
time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give
reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy
name, small and great; and shouldest
destroy them which destroy the earth.

From the foregoing, we can understand that Today is not the only Day
of Salvation.  However, the Psalmist prophecies that in a time yet
future, All the people of the world will turn to YHWH and all the
peoples of the nations will worship before Him.  We will all agree that
nothing like this has ever happened to this day.

Psalms 22:27 All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD:
and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.

We know that something like this will happen during the millennium
reign of the Christ.  However, according to the Christ, the city-state
of Sodom will rise up and shame some of the Israelite cities of the day
of His earthly ministry in turning to Him for salvation.

There is a yet future time when YHWH will rebuild the temple of
David and call the remainder of men to earnestly seek Him.  In other
words, those not raised in the first resurrection will then have an
opportunity for salvation.

Amos 9:11  In that day I will raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and
will rebuild the ruins of it, and will set up the parts thereof that have been
broken down, and will build it up as in the ancient days:
12 that the remnant of men, and all the Gentiles upon whom my name is called,
may earnestly seek me, saith the Lord who does all these things.

God begins to fulfill this prophecy in The Last Great Day of His plan
of salvation.  Earlier we saw that God is currently selecting the
firstfruits as Christ’s Bride.  On the day, which represents the eighth
1000-year period in the process of salvation, the Christ cried out, “If
any man thirst let him come to me and drink”.  In other words, the
Christ was teaching the meaning of the day they currently observed.

John 7:37  In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried,
saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow
rivers of living water.

Observe that Ezekiel prophesied that God would bring Sodom,
Samaria, and Israel back to their former estates.  This takes place in
the eighth day of God’s plan for man’s salvation.

Ezekiel 16:53 When I shall bring again their captivity, the captivity of Sodom
and her daughters, and the captivity of Samaria and her daughters, then will I
bring again the captivity of thy captives in the midst of them:
54 That thou mayest bear thine own shame, and mayest be confounded in all
that thou hast done, in that thou art a comfort unto them.
55
When thy sisters, Sodom and her daughters, shall return to their former
estate, and Samaria and her daughters shall return to their former estate, then
thou and thy daughters shall return to your former estate.

During the eighth-millennium God resurrects all whom He does not
raise in the first resurrection.  At that time, God will cause
accessibility to the books of the bible for all who did not understand in
their previous lifetime; God will open the book of life – opportunity
for eternal life – and those who were dead will receive judgment
based on whether they embrace life or death for a lifetime of 100
years, after their resurrection.

Revelation 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and
the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is [the book] of
life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the
books, according to their works.

Just as God judges us now, He will judge them during their lifetime in
the eighth-millennium, for salvation.  In other words, the Great White
Throne Judgment is not a time of sentencing but a time of evaluation –
judging according to one’s works.  If they do not obey the gospel of
God, they will incur the eternal wrath of God.  

1Peter 4:17 For the time [is come] that judgment must begin at the house of
God: and if [it] first [begin] at us, what shall the end [be] of them that obey
not the gospel of God?

Ephesians 5:6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these
things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.

God is fair but not gullible.  God has an orderly process to bring
everyone into eternal life.  However, the incorrigible will die and
cease to exist even in the minds of the parents who bore them!

1Corinthians 15:23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits;
afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.

Isaiah 26:14 [They are] dead, they shall not live; [they are] deceased, they
shall not rise: therefore, hast thou visited and destroyed them, and made all
their memory to perish.

Do you want God to open eternal life to you?  

Luke 11:9 And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall
find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.

Jeremiah 29:13 And ye shall seek me, and find [me], when ye shall search for
me with all your heart.

You cannot reserve part of your life for yourself!  You will find God
when you search for Him with all your heart.  Even if God does not
call you in this lifetime, be assured that the effort to find Him is worth
every minute of it and should He delay your call until the Great White
Throne Judgment, you will be ahead of the crowd in the process of
salvation.  

Deuteronomy 30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you,
[that] I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore
choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
