For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour 4 Who will have thelo all men to be saved and to come unto the knowledge of the truth 5

there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; 6 Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.

This is a powerful scripture as it stands, because God's sovereign will to save ALL people and have them come to the knowledge of the truth cannot be frustrated by man's limited fallen freewill. This scripture becomes even stronger once we understand that the primary meaning of the Greek Word thelo is to be resolved or determined as given in Strong's Concordance (Strong's Number G2309).

Unfortunately, the NKJV and the NIV use the weaker meaning of thelo, which is to desire. God not only desires that all men are saved, but He has resolved and determined that all men are saved and come to the knowledge of the truth.
