The merciful God of heaven can and will forgive all who come to him in repentance and asking forgiveness.  We can achieve the Kingdom if we only set our hearts to seek it with all our heart and soul and might.

"Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man."  Luke 21:36

     "The translation is a special mark of Divine favor to watching ones - faith and obedience are precious in the sight of God - and bestowed in order to deliver them from the fearful tyranny and dreadful cruelty of the last terrible enemy.  It is a high honor and glorious privilege bestowed, and believing this, we do well to hold ourselves in the commanded attitude of constant watching for the Advent, so that, if it occurs in our day, we also may be accounted worthy of it.  For if we honor the Master by our faith, He, likewise, will honor us.  We may rest assured, that when this translation takes place, suddenly and quickly, it will result in most painful separations; those left feeling keenly and deeply the loss or removal of dear ones.  This period will give expression to a powerful and extraordinary manifestation of feeling."

George N. H. Peters The Gospel of Luke
