We talk of accommodation often and we even see places where God accommodated practices like divorce for the evil of our hearts.
We see verses like
New American Standard Bible
16 In past generations He permitted all the nations to go their own ways; 17 yet He did not leave Himself without witness, in that He did good and gave you rains from heaven and fruitful seasons, satisfying your hearts with food and gladness.”
It says he did not leave all the nations in the last without a a witness. It implies he reached out to non Jewish nations as well.
He also sent dreams to the Egyptian pharoah in genesis 41. and he gave some sign to the wise men coming up to Christ’s birth. This is not universalism. This is God reaching out to many nations to help create a better world for them through righteousness as they prepare their hearts for the baptism into Christ. There is a joking saying that I hear sometimes. We all should follow Yahweh, but if not Yahweh then Zeus is better than the devil.
It’s the belief that by reaching out to various nations God could help improve their rightness to prep their hearts for the gospel of Jesus.
