Salvation is offered to all people by God and given to all people who come to Him.
God alone gives His salvation, none else. Salvation is commitment to God for life, not just one day.
12 Truths of Salvation:
The dictionary defines salvation as deliverance from the power and effects of sin and preservation from destruction.
The Word of God reveals to all people that salvation is the gift of God and eternal life and deliverance from sin and death from God alone, none else.
The word of God reads that salvation is of the LORD, salvation is eternal life andthe gift of God, by His grace through faith in Christ Jesus (Jonah 2:9; Ephesians 2:8; Romans 6:23; Galatians 3:26).
Salvation is being delivered from all sin and the effects of sin, which is death (Romans 8:2, 21).
Salvation is receiving forgiveness of all our sins and being reconciled to God (Romans 5:10; Acts 26:18; 2 Corinthians 5:18). No one is acceptable to God for what we have done, but because what He has done. It is the works of Christ Jesus that enables us to be accepted by God. Nothing we can do can or ever could make us acceptable to God, only by the works of Jesus are we saved.
Salvation is the desire of God, the will of God for all mankind. Salvation is the gift of God to all mankind. Salvation is the operation of God alone by which we are born-again into the family of God, heirs of God, the children of God, by the washing and renewing of our spirit with the blood of Jesus, by the Grace of God through faith in Christ Jesus to save us from sin and death, and receive His power to overcome sin and live by faith, and in faith that God can and will give us eternal life (Colossians 2:12; John 3:3; 1 Peter 1:23; Ephesians 2:5, 8, 19; Romans 6: 23, 8:17; Galatians 3:26; Titus 3:4-7).
Salvation is the gift of GOD
Salvation is the gift of God. Salvation is the love gift from God to everyone who comes to Him by faith. Faith in God is required of God to receive His salvation, because without faith it is impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:6).
God's love is defined and expressed to us by His gift of salvation to us. Love is defined in the Word in the salvation of God, by the love sacrifice God gave to all mankind, so that we might be saved.
God loves us so much that He gave His only begotten Son, Jesus the Christ, so that by believing in Him, we would not perish, but receive everlasting life.
We all receive salvation the exact same way, by grace through faith (Ephesians 2:8). We are saved by the grace of God through faith in Christ Jesus. By receiving salvation, being saved, you can be sure of eternal life and be ready to go to heaven.
The gift of God is eternal life through faith in His Son to salvation (Romans 6:23). Without faith it is impossible to please God, coming to God in faith is believing that He is all that He says that He is (Hebrews 11:6).
Salvation is forgiveness
Salvation is receiving forgiveness of sin by asking for and receiving the free gift from God of eternal life, which is Christ Jesus.
We receive the salvation of God by believing our sins are removed from us as far is the east is from the west (Psalm 103:12; Acts 10:43), by believing Jesus died for our sins and rose from the grave to new life (1 Corinthians 15:3-4), we can receive the gift of God, the salvation of God (Luke 3:6), and we can pass from death to life everlasting into the Kingdom of God (John 6:47; 1 John 2:17).
Salvation is deliverance
With salvation we are delivered from the power and the effects of sin, which is death (Romans 6:23).
Deliverance from sin and death is given to all who receive the gift of salvation from God and obey God. Obedience to God is required to receive His salvation. Obedience to God is required after salvation, to remain in the will of God.
We either practice God's will or we practice our own self will. We either live God's way, or we live our own way. To live in freedom from sin, we must submit ourselves to God. Only by following God's will in our lives can we live in victory. No one is delivered from sin, no one can receive freedom from sin without submitting to God, obeying God, living His will. We must deny ourselves, forfeit our own will, walk away from sin, repent of sin, separate ourselves from sin, and turn from our way to God's will.
Sanctification is not automatic. God says that each of us must work out our own salvation (Philippians 2:12). No one can work out your salvation but you. We work out our salvation by seeking God, remaining in the faith, guarding our faith through prayer, worship, and reading God's Word every day. We are to live and remain holy all the days of our lives, because we love God and because He is Holy, and we follow Him, no one or nothing else.
If you believe that you are saved, if you have received the salvation of God by His grace through faith, but you are not freed from sin, it is not God's fault, but it is your fault. Get on your knees, seek God, tell God how much you love Him, thank God for your life, submit yourself to God totally, give your life to God, ask that His will be done in your life, ask for His help, ask God to forgive your sins, repent of your sins, ask Jesus to remove everything in your life that prevents you from serving Him completely. God promises all people, that if we seek Him, that we will find Him (Jeremiah 29:13).
Salvation is everlasting life
Salvation is life eternal. Salvation is everlasting life. Salvation is life beyond human existence. Through the gift of God, through salvation, we are made free from the law of sin and death (Romans 8:2). Death has no hold on those who receive salvation, we pass from death into life, for we seek glory and honour and immorality, eternal life (Romans 2:7). We know Christ through salvation, and are set free from sin and death (John 8:36).
Human beings are not eternal. There is a day appointed in which we are born, and there is a day appointed in which we will die. All human beings have a limited amount of time here on this earth. The age of existence on this earth is temporary. Some people live long lives. Some people live to be 100, while others die in their childhood. People die every day at every age. There is no age that is exempt from death.
Our lifespan here on this earth is not long, in fact, God says our life on this earth is but a vapor, that appears for a little time and then vanishes away (James 4:14).
God also says that one day with Him in Heaven is like a thousand years (2 Peter 3:8). If we contrast our life here on this earth with a life of eternity in Heaven, we too can see our life is just a vapor, because what is even 100 years on this earth compared to the infinity in Heaven.
Salvation is true life
Only through receiving the salvation of God, by His grace through faith, can anyone truly see the purpose of life.
Life, living is much more than being born into this world, going to school, getting a job, getting married and having a family, gathering material things, growing old and then dying. True living is much, much more than what this world has to offer.
True living is abundant life, extending past what is seen in this world, past what is known of by human understanding and human vision. True living is past what is seen and found anywhere in this world.
True living is realized only through the salvation of God, through receiving the love of God, when God Himself opens the door to an eternal home, His home, where we can receive love and peace, like never before found on this earth, through faith in His Son Christ Jesus to salvation.
The love of God is hard to explain to someone who has never experienced it, and who only understands the things this world has to offer, like material things and earthly love. Words cannot describe the miracle of the love of God inside the believer's heart and soul.
The love of God goes beyond, past anything you can imagine, to another world of understanding, a higher level of love which cannot be obtained by anything or by anyone on this earth.
Anyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved (Romans 10:13).
Faith - The one step to receiving salvation
There is one step to receiving the salvation of God - Faith in God. Through faith, believing that God is God and believing that He alone can save you, believing in God and His Word, you can be saved.
We are all saved the exact same way, by the Grace of God through faith in God to salvation. You must believe that God can and will save your soul from sin and death, before you can receive His gift of salvation, which is eternal life.
Salvation is receive through faith in God, believing in God. We are saved by grace though faith, no other way. Without faith there is no salvation. Unbelief separates anyone from God for all eternity.
During the act of salvation, several things occur - we believe that God is God and that He is all that He says He is in His word (Hebrews 11:6); we confess we are a sinner and have sinned against God and we seek His forgiveness; we repent of our sins and turn from sin to God and pledge to live for God and not for sin; we ask Jesus to save us, make us whole, come into our hearts and be our Saviour, Lord, and Master of our life and then we receive the salvation of God; and then we give our whole life to God and surrender our life to Jesus and follow Him all the days of our lives.
Faith is gifted to every human being from God. God gives every person a measure of faith (Romans 12:3). The faith God gives each of us is sufficient to believe in Him for salvation.
With the faith that we receive from God, we are given strength and power to obey God and His Word.
We are all saved the exact same way, which is by grace through faith. The grace of God saves everyone, and through faith we can accept God's gift of salvation. God's grace permits salvation of everyone.
By faith we accept God's gift of salvation. Through faith we believe in God's Word and who God is.
By grace through faith we receive the salvation of God and the desire and the power to obey God and His word. Obedience to God is realized through salvation, when we believe in Jesus Christ, confess and repent of all sins, ask Jesus to save us and be our personal Lord, and when we give our life, surrender all to Christ Jesus.
Believe, Confess, Repent, Ask, Surrender
God does not save anyone, unless they come to Him and believe in Him - believe that He is all He says that He is in His Word.
Without faith in God - all of God - no one is saved. The scriptures tell us all that we must believe in God the Father and God the Son to receive the salvation of God. If we do not love God - Father and Son - we do not love God and we cannot be receive by God, we cannot receive His blessings and His gifts. Without believing that Jesus Christ can save you, you cannot be saved, there is no other way. Unbelief separates anyone from God for eternity.
Too many people think that they can have the salvation of God, without God, which is impossible. To remove God from the equation is to void salvation.
Forgiveness of sin is required for salvation. God will not forgive our sins unless we admit we are a sinner and need His forgiveness. No one is saved unless their sins are forgiven by God. Only God Himself can grant absolution from all our sins. Who can forgive sin but God only? No one (Mark 2:7).
God will not forgive sins unless they are repented. No one has forgiveness of sins unless they turn from their sin and turn to God. God knows our heart, repentance is performed in your heart.
God does not force anyone to receive His salvation. God will not save people who do not ask Him, salvation is a choice every person must make themselves. You must go to God and ask God to save you. God promises to save all people who come to Him and ask Him for His salvation.
God gives His free gift of salvation to all who through faith surrender their life to Him. No one can receive the salvation of God without giving their life to Jesus. We are made the children of God by obedience to God, by denying self, relinquishing our way for God's way, by choosing to follows God's will for our lives instead of following our own wills. Salvation is living by the prayer taught to all people, "Not my will, but thine be done". Total surrender to God is offered by all people to Christ Jesus who receive the salvation of God.
Pray to God and ask for Salvation from God:
Prayer for GOD's salvation:
If you prayed this prayer from your whole heart and believe in Jesus and believe that He alone can save you, we believe that you are saved.
What do I do AFTER I am saved?
We can know we have eternal salvation because we are promised it by the Word of God (1 John 5:13).
Sin, iniquity, unrighteous, separates all people from God.
God does not sin. God never condones sin. No unrighteousness can live with God.
All have sinned
God says in the word of God, that we have all sinned. All human beings are born into sin. No person in this world is born sinless.
In order to be cleansed of sin, we must be born again into the kingdom of God. Being born again is salvation, washed clean of sin.
Sin entered the world by one man, Adam. Death by sin entered the world by one man, Adam; and, therefore all men have sin and will receive death, because the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23). The end result of sin is eternal death, separated away from God for eternity.
Sin is NOT of God. Sin does NOT exist in God. God is sinless. Sin is NOT permitted in the presence of God. Sin does NOT exist in the presence of God. Sin will never be in the presence of God.
Sin is of the devil, because the devil sinned from the beginning.
Because of sin, God sent Jesus, His only begotten Son, to destroy sin on earth.
It is a fact that everyone has sin. We are all born in sin, with sin, and have sin. We all have sin, until God forgives us of our sins, which is only through His gift of salvation.
As long as we live on this sinful earth we will sin because we are in our fleshly bodies.
Not until the Lord returns and takes us away from here will be sin free, or when we die, whichever comes first.
The lost and the saved sin differently. The lost sin on purpose, the saved do NOT sin willfully and on purpose.
The saved in Christ Jesus are kept from sin through faith in Him, by the power of God.
Sinners are condemned to death
The word of God reads the wages of sin is death, but there is hope.
God has a gift of eternal life for everyone, for all people who believes in His Son, Jesus Christ.
The gift of eternal life is only through Jesus Christ our Lord.
You must be born again to go to the kingdom of God after you die.
Eternity begins when we are born. Unless we are born again spiritually, after our earthly birth, our eternity is damnation. When we receive the gift of God, which is salvation, our eternity changes.
We are no longer doomed to eternity without God, but are given eternal life, as heirs to the Kingdom of God, to spend eternity with God in Heaven.
Jesus is our redeemer
Our sins must be redeemed before we can enter the kingdom of God.
We must exchange, redeem our sins for eternal life. Our sins must be erased, washed away, in order to enter into the presence of God.
Everyone must be born again to enter the kingdom of God.
Our sins must be washed clean before we can be with God and only Jesus Christ can redeem us from our sins.
There is only one door to the Kingdom of God, to Heaven, that door is Jesus Christ. We must all go through Jesus Christ, in order to enter into Heaven, into the presence of God.
God gave His only begotten Son, Jesus, as a sacrifice for all our sins, that we could receive eternal life. Jesus paid the price for the whole worlds sins.
Through Jesus Christ we are saved by the grace of Jesus, through faith in Jesus. Only God can save anyone. By the grace of God, Jesus Christ, we are saved through faith in God, Jesus Christ. There is NO OTHER WAY to be saved.
You can only receive eternal life through Jesus.
You can only see God through Jesus.
You can only enter the kingdom of God through Jesus.
Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is the only door, which anyone can enter the kingdom of God and receive eternal, everlasting life.
Through the death sacrifice of Jesus our sins can be forgiven.
Salvation is not automatic. Jesus died for the sins of the world, but to receive salvation all must ask for salvation.
You must ask Jesus to forgive you of your sins, repent of your sins, turn your back on sin, and ask Jesus Christ to be the Lord over your entire life.
People do NOT automatically receive salvation from God when we are born. We are not born into salvation, but we are born into sin. We are all sinners and must receive salvation to inherit the Kingdom of God, to receive eternal life, to live with God for all eternity.
Salvation is necessary because of our sin. Because of our sin we need for salvation.
God tell us in His Word that the wages of sin is death, in this life and the next. To live with God in His Kingdom we need His salvation.
God says after we die there is eternal death because of sin. God does not want any person to die in their sins, so He made a way out from death for us, through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ, we can receive salvation from sin and death.
We are all sinners because of sin. We are all doomed to eternal death, eternally separated from God for eternity, if we do not receive salvation from God through faith.
Sin entered into the world by one man, the first man created by God, called Adam; and, by Adam death was passed onto all mankind (Romans 5:12).
No human being is without sin; therefore salvation is necessary for every person.
The word of God states that, we all have sinned and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). When we are born, we are not born without sin, we are born with sin.
We know by the Word of God, that the wages of is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23).
By our sin we are separated from God, but through faith in Christ Jesus we can be washed, cleansed of sin, and reconciled to God (Romans 5:8-11).
By one (Adam) sin entered into this world and covers every human being with death; and, by one we can receive the abundance of grace and be covered with the righteousness of Christ Jesus and reign in life by Him (Romans 5:17,19,21).
Just as we have put on sin by one man's (Adam) disobedience and made sinners; so by the obedience of one (Christ Jesus) shall many be made righteous (Romans 5:19).
God tells us through His Scriptures, that if we die in our sins, then we will face the wrath of God, condemnation, and damnation, eternal separation from God.
Only through the salvation of God can we escape the wrath of God. By obtaining the salvation of God through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ (who died for us), we may escape the wrath of God (1 Thessalonians 5:9-10).
Sin must be put away from us in order to be accepted by God, reconciled by God, enter into the presence of God.
Nothing that we can do by ourselves can wash away our sins. No works, no laws, no sacrifice, no acts, no rituals, nothing can make us clean, wash away our sins, make us acceptable to God and worthy to enter the gates of Heaven.
Nothing we do can deliver us from the power and effects of sin. This is why God sent His only begotten Son to this world, as a living sacrifice, the only blood offering accepted by God for all the sins of all the people of this world.
Only through the blood of Christ Jesus we are washed clean, cleaned from sin, made worthy by putting on the righteousness of Christ, and made able to stand in the presence of God Almighty.
The salvation of God is in Christ Jesus. Christ Jesus is the source of salvation, because this is the plan of God.
Jesus Christ is the author of salvation. Salvation begins and ends with Jesus.
The will of God is for all people of this world, everyone, to obtain His salvation, to obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.
Salvation is received by grace through faith. Salvation is only obtained by grace through faith.
Faith in Christ Jesus is the only way to receive salvation. God's perfect plan of salvation is one way, through Christ Jesus.
All mankind is NOT the children of God (Romans 9:8). We are not born into this world as the children of God. All people in this world are NOT the children of God, only people who believe in Jesus Christ for their salvation are the children of God (John 3:3).
God said that no one comes to Him except through Jesus Christ (John 14:6).
God created all things. All things were created by Him and for Him. God laid out the plan of salvation for mankind. People cannot be saved by God through their own ways.
God laid the plan of salvation for all mankind, and God's plan was for us all to come to Him through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ.
God's plan of salvation is perfect. God's plan of salvation is required for all to enter into God's eternal Kingdom in Heaven.
Eternal life is in the Son of God, Jesus Christ. Everlasting life is obtained through faith in Christ Jesus.
The one and only Saviour of the World, Jesus Christ is the one and only name whereby we must be saved (Acts 4:12).
Only by coming to God through faith in Christ Jesus can we be made perfect and given the gift of God which is salvation, which is eternal life. (2 Timothy 3:17)
Only by coming to God through Jesus can we inherit eternal life, pass from death to life, and see the eternal Kingdom of God.
Jesus Christ is the true God and eternal life (1 John 5:20).
The salvation of God is found in only one, by faith in Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the only name given by God in which we MUST be saved.
Many people think that God's plan of salvation is not perfect, but is lacking in one way or another, in so that they add to or take away from God's perfect plan of salvation - which is by grace through faith in Christ Jesus.
Some people add works to God's plan of salvation, and some people take away Jesus as the propitiation for sin and reconciliation by redemption through Christ' blood on His cross for salvation, forgiveness of sins, and pathway to inheritance in the Kingdom of Heaven (Romans 3:22-26; 1 John 2:1-2; 1 John 4:9-10; Colossians 1:14, 20; 2:14; Acts 26:18; Ephesians 1:7; 1 Peter 1:2-4).
Many false religions cut up and alter the word of God to set up for themselves as the only pathway to truth.
God says that all these liars, false teachers, cults, who add to and/or take away from the Holy Word of God will have their part in the eternal lake which burneth with fire and brimstone (Revelation 21:8; 22:18-19).
What does salvation save us from?
The gift of God is salvation of our souls. Salvation is the gift of life received from God through faith in Jesus Christ.
What does God say that HIS salvation saves us from? What exactly are we saved from? God says that through His salvation that we are saved from sin and death.
Salvation saves us from sin and death
Salvation saves us from the bondage of sin and its effects, which is death.
The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ destroyed sin and death. Through Christ Jesus we too have victory over sin and death.
The shed blood of Christ Jesus was the final atonement for all sin for all people. Through the blood of Christ Jesus we can be forgiven of all sin by God the Father. The death of Christ Jesus paid for all our sins, once for all, one sacrifice for all sin for all people for all time. No other sacrifice is required by God the Father for our sins. We are all reconciled to God through the shed blood sacrifice of Christ Jesus once for all, one-time for all people, through salvation.
The resurrection of Jesus Christ, from death to life, grants us everlasting life in the throne of God, to every person who believes. Because Christ Jesus lives, because Christ rose from death to life, we too can pass from death to life, IF we believe in Him.
So, exactly what part of us is saved, when we receive the salvation of God? What is saved when we receive salvation?
As with every detail of our life, God tells us all through His scriptures exactly what is saved and what is not saved.
Our soul is eternal and through the gift of God, which is salvation, our soul is saved when we receive salvation.
When our life began, God breathes life into us and we become a living soul (Genesis 2:7). Our soul is eternal. Our soul lives on for eternity, after our flesh dies. Through our choice either to have faith in God to salvation, or NOT, determines our soul's eternal destiny.
God promises our soul will receive everlasting life or everlasting death (John 5:29), the choice is ours alone.
Our eternal soul is saved by believing in Jesus. Our eternal soul is saved given everlasting life through faith in Jesus Christ. The gift of God is salvation of our eternal soul through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ.
Our faith in Jesus Christ to salvation, saves our soul.
The salvation of our soul is the end of our faith in Christ Jesus.
When we are converted, our soul is saved from death.
Is our soul the same as our heart or our spirit? God lists the soul separate from the heart and spirit and body and mind, God says they are separate. We are to love the Lord our God with all our heart and with all our soul and with all our mind and with all our strength.
When is our soul saved? When the faithful die, our soul, heart, spirit, mind are immediately with Jesus in Heaven. The word of God reads that receiving the salvation of our souls is the end of our faith. Believers live by faith in God their entire lives, and the end of that faith is salvation of our souls.
The difference between the lost and the saved is faith in Jesus Christ to salvation. Those without faith, the unbelieving will not receive eternal life in the Kingdom of God.
What is not saved? Our earthly bodies are not saved. God tells us that our flesh and bones body, our earthly bodies, will die when we die and return to dust, but our soul lives on for eternity. IF we by faith chose the salvation of God through faith in Jesus Christ, our souls will live for eternity with God. God promises that all people who choose to live by faith will see His Kingdom and receive eternal salvation, which is everlasting life in Heaven.
The children of God will have bodies in Heaven, but they will be incorruptible bodies, heavenly bodies, that will never decay and die. God promises that our bodies will be resurrected and changed to join our souls already in Heaven, and we will be complete body and soul in Heaven with Jesus for ever more.
Our life, our spirit
Our life is saved. Through faith in Jesus Christ by the grace of God our life is saved. Through faith, by believing we receive everlasting life.
No one but God can give us everlasting life. Salvation belongs to God (Psalm 3:8). God alone saves our lives from sin and death.
IF we choose to believe in Jesus Christ to save us from sin and death, to forgive us of all our sins, believe that He came from God to earth to die and shed His blood on a cross for the sins of the world, for our sins, for my sins for your sins, believe Jesus rose from the grave, three days after He died, rose to life eternal, sits on the right hand side of God the Father, believe our soul will live for eternity with God in His Heavenly Kingdom, and believe Christ Jesus will return to earth one day for His own, IF we choose to believe our life can be saved.
Through faith we receive eternal life, through faith our life is saved for eternity. We must believe to be saved.
Those who enter the gates of Heaven believe. Those who don't enter heaven do NOT believe. Yes, salvation is that simple.
Unbelief will prevent anyone from entering the Kingdom of God and receiving eternal salvation.
The saved in Christ Jesus live by faith, stand every day in faith. (Galatians 3:11, Hebrews 10:38)
We must hold onto our precious faith, hold onto it with care, we must be cautious and take heed, lest we fall and conceive an evil heart of unbelief and depart from the living God.
Our minds are saved through salvation. Our thought process is saved and will live on for eternity.
Our earthly mind will not be saved, but our regenerated mind will be saved for eternity. Our mind, like our bodies will be changed into a heavenly body and mind. We will not think of the same things we do now on earth, when we are in God's Heaven.
Our hearts are saved through salvation. Our feelings, our personality is saved and will live on for eternity.
The trinity of our heavenly body will be our heart, our soul, and our mind (Matthew 22:37).
Is any part of us not saved by salvation?
Our earthly body is not saved
Our earthly bodies are NOT saved with salvation. When we die our earthly bodies will die, but our soul and spirit lives on for eternity.
Our fleshly bodies we have and see here on earth will not go with us into Heaven, but God promises to give us a new heavenly body that will never grow old, decay or die.
God says that our earthly bodies cannot enter into Heaven, for they are corrupt because of sin (1 Corinthians 15:50). We will not have our earthly bodies in Heaven, but God will give us a new heavenly body, a perfect heavenly incorruptible body (1 Corinthians 15:52).
The word of God reads that believers of Christ Jesus, the saved, will receive a heavenly body, a body that is created by God for Heaven, and able to enter into the Kingdom of Heaven (1 Corinthians 15:49) and live forever.
Our earthly flesh and bones bodies are corruptible, they are decaying, they are falling apart, they are dying. Our earthly flesh and bones bodies were not made to live for eternity, they were made to live a specific time here on earth.
God promises to give all His children a heavenly, incorruptible, disease free, decay free, heavenly, body that can live for eternity. We will have no more illness, sickness, disease, no more problems that come from a dying, earthly, sin prone body.
Salvation is far from the wicked
It makes sense that salvation is far from the wicked, because they do not seek God, they live for themselves, they have forsaken the right way God's way, they choose to believe a lie over the truth of God (2 Peter 2:12-15).
God is not far from anyone, who seek Him (Acts 17:27). It is not God's wish that any person die without His gift of salvation and eternal life (2 Peter 3:9).
God gave His Son, Jesus, to all the world, so that all the world could be saved through faith in His Son (John 3:16).
The will of God is for all people to come to the knowledge of the truth - that salvation is for all people through faith in Jesus Christ (1 Timothy 2:4).
Can the wicked be saved? Yes, God says the wicked can be saved, if they turn from their wicked ways.
The salvation of God is available to ALL people of the world, who come to Him through faith in Christ Jesus (Galatians 3:26).
God hates sin, God loves people. Salvation is offered to all people, even the wicked, if they turn from their wicked ways and by faith turn to Christ for salvation (Acts 26:18; Romans 11:23).
God appointed us to obtain salvation by Jesus
God's will is for all people to obtain salvation by Jesus Christ, because God loves us and wants us all to live with Him forever.
It is God's heart's desire that we ALL obtain His salvation through faith in Jesus. Do you want to please God? Then do what He desires, have faith in His Son and accept His salvation.
God wants us to choose life, through faith in salvation.
God is waiting on you to choose life!
God is longsuffering, merciful, faithful, and loving. God does not want any person to die without everlasting life.
God is patiently waiting on you to say YES to Him, to accept His free gift of salvation, eternal life in His Son, Christ Jesus.
Will you say yes, today? Say, Yes, ask Jesus into your heart right now, to be the Saviour and the Lord of your life forever.
Salvation is of the Lord
God is my salvation
Man is not his own salvation. I am not my salvation. I cannot save myself. Salvation is not from me. God is my salvation. Nothing else is salvation but the Lord God.
God of my salvation
I am not the creator and ruler of my salvation, God is the only God of my salvation.
In God is my salvation
My salvation is nothing apart from God. May salvation and my glory is IN God. God is the source of my salvation, not myself. Salvation is all about God, not me.
My salvation shall be forever
Hallelujah!! My salvation shall be forever!! Praise God!!
Only Jesus can give us salvation
God alone gives His salvation to mankind.
Jesus Christ is the author of eternal salvation
Salvation is for all people.
Everyone in the world has the ability to receive salvation. Salvation is not withheld from anyone by God. God offers His free gift of salvation to every person, no matter what sin they have committed in their past.
No one ever born has been excluded from God's offer of salvation. Everyone born has the same choice, to accept the salvation of God, or not.
Every nationality, every race, every man, every woman, every child, everyone has the same opportunity to accept salvation; no one is excluded from being able to accept the salvation of God.
God is no respecter of persons, meaning that no one is better or worse than another person. God sees all His creation the same, as His creation. God loves all His people that He created.
God loves you. God loves us all more than we can ever imagine.
God says that any living person can be saved.
Are only certain people able to be saved? Do I have to be good to be saved?
Do you have to be 'religious' to be saved? Do you have to go to church to be saved? Don't you have to be good to be saved?
Are only Israelites saved? Are only certain denominations or certain groups saved?
Who does God save?
God is able to save anyone. God saves whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
God did NOT say that we must join a certain church, give money, be sprinkled with water, be immersed with water, say a certain set of words, memorize something, recite anything, kneel, bend, sit, stand, dress a certain way, become a member of anything, do a set list of actions, be a certain nationality, be called by a certain name, join a certain group of people, recite vows, be a certain race, be a certain sex, be in a certain religious order, don't marry, eat certain foods, don't take blood transfusions, pray certain prayers, or any such things, to be saved.
God says we are saved by grace through faith (Ephesians 2:8).
God said we must have faith to be saved, which is coming to God believing that He is, calling upon His name.
God says that we all become saved through faith in His Son. God says we are all the children of God through faith in Jesus Christ the Lord (Galatians 3:26).
God wants everyone to be saved
God's will is for ALL PEOPLE to be saved, everyone in the world. God wants every race, every color, every nationality, every country, every person to be saved.
No one is excluded from accepting the salvation of God.
God said there is no difference between races
God is the same Lord over all people, no matter what race, gender, nationality, country, group, tribe, language, color, status, position, or manner of person you are.
There is NOT a separate Hebrew God, a Greek God, a Baptist God, Catholic God, a Methodist God, an Asian God, a White God, a Black God, or any such like, because there is only ONE GOD over all.
There is only ONE True Living Jehovah Almighty Lord God over all people and who gives salvation to all people (Jeremiah 10:10; Psalm 83:18; Revelation 1:8)
ALL who call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
God calls us to Him, but He does not force His salvation on us; we must ALL call on the name of the Lord to be saved.
God does NOT force Himself on us, we must choose Him, we must ask Jesus into our lives to become our Lord and Saviour, we must call upon the name of the Lord to be saved.
God said ALL who call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved, that includes everyone, that includes you.
God does not discriminate. The scriptures says that God is no respecter of persons, which means that God places everyone on the same level, no one person is greater than another person.
God gives His free gift of salvation to all people, all races, all nations.
God receives everyone the same into His loving arms.
We are all saved by God the same exact way, by the grace of God through faith in Christ Jesus.
By the grace of God, we are able to have faith in Christ Jesus to salvation. Only by the grace of God are any of us saved from sin and death.
God gives His salvation to ALL people who ask Him for it. God doesn't give salvation to only people who go to church every week, or who seem to be good, because God is no respecter of persons (Acts 10:34).
God sees sinners all the same, for we are all sinners. The sin God sees on the person who goes to church every week, or who seems to be good, is the same sin God sees on the person who has never set foot inside a church, or who seems to be a sinner. God sees all our sin the same because we have all sinned and fell short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23).
Receiving the salvation of God removes our sin from the eyes of God (Psalm 103:12). Through salvation by the shed blood of Christ Jesus, covers all our sin, we receive remission of our sin and all its effects, our past sins are remembered no more (Hebrews 10:17).
The Saviour saves. Christ Jesus is the Saviour (John 4:42; Philippians 3:20; 2 Timothy 1:10; Titus 2:13). The living God is the Saviour of all men (1 Timothy 4:10). There is no Saviour besides the LORD God (Isaiah 43:11; 45:21; ).
God alone saves. Only God can save anyone from sin and death.
All power to give eternal life is in the Son of God, Christ Jesus.
The Son of God, Jesus Christ, is the only one who can save anyone of their sins, and give eternal life.
Only belief in, having faith in Jesus Christ can save us from our sins and grant us everlasting life.
Eternal life is in only one - Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Eternal life is given by God through faith in Christ Jesus. Nothing else, no one else except God can give eternal life. Eternal life is through Jesus Christ alone.
No one can go to God, except through Jesus Christ
We are all saved the same way, through faith in Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God.
No one can enter the kingdom of God, except through believing in Jesus Christ.
The only way to enter Heaven is through Jesus Christ, through faith in Jesus Christ, through belief in Jesus Christ, there is no other way to salvation, to Heaven, to eternal life.
We are all saved the exact same way, by grace through faith. By the grace of God through faith in Christ Jesus we are saved.
We become the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
Salvation is the gift of God
We are saved through faith by the grace of God, and not by anything that we can do, because salvation is the gift of God.
Salvation is the gift of God. Salvation cannot be earned by something that we can do for God, because salvation is THE GIFT of God.
Nothing we can do, no works, can save us, only by faith in Jesus is anyone saved; salvation, it is the gift of God.
Salvation is the gift of God, received by faith in His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ.
By the grace of God we are able to have faith in God. By faith in God we are able to receive the gift of God, which is salvation.
No one is saved by what they can do of themselves. Salvation comes from the grace of God, it is the gift of God.
Not by works, but by faith in God alone we are all saved.
By the mercy of God alone we are saved and not by our works.
God alone is able to save us all by Himself. We are saved, we are justified by the grace of God alone. God's grace, His mercy alone is able to save us from sin and death.
The saved live in faith and have faith in Christ Jesus to salvation (Galatians 3:26).
The lost live in unbelief and do not have faith in God to salvation (Romans 4:20).
Unbelief separates anyone from God for eternity (Hebrews 3:12)
Saving in God, Christ Jesus, separates the saved from the lost.
We are all saved the exact same way, by grace through faith we are saved (Ephesians 2:8). By the grace of God through faith in His Son, Christ Jesus, we are saved and become the children of God (Galatians 3:26).
The one thing that separates the lost from the saved is faith in Christ Jesus to salvation. The saved in God have faith in Christ Jesus, the lost do not believe in Jesus for the salvation of their souls.
The lack of faith in Jesus for their salvation separates anyone from the Kingdom of God.
The unbelieving will not inherit the kingdom of God, unless they repent of their unbelief. The unbelieving are not saved. An unbelieving heart separates anyone from being saved.
Nothing else in this world saves anyone, by grace through faith saves us from sin and eternal separation from God.
Works cannot save anyone. Being good cannot save anyone. Going to church cannot save anyone. Being a member of a certain group cannot save anyone. Nothing saves anyone except faith in Christ Jesus.
By grace through faith in Jesus saves us, nothing else is required by God for salvation, because salvation cannot be earned by anything we have to offer or give, because salvation is the gift of God, freely given to whosoever believes in His Son to the saving of their soul.
Life after death
By accepting the salvation of God through faith in His Son, Christ Jesus, the saved receive eternal life, which is life after our death here on this earth, if we continue in the faith until our death.
Life after death separates the saved from the lost, because the lost do not receive life with God after they die, because they chose to reject the salvation of God while they were alive.
There is another life, after death of the flesh in this world, that is eternal life in the kingdom of God. Our flesh and bones will decay and die but our spirit lives for eternity.
Every soul born into this world will live for eternity. The lost, the unbelieving will receive in eternal death without God. The saved, the faithful will receive eternal life with God. The choice of death or life is ours alone, and God says CHOOSE LIFE.
God says the only way for anyone to receive eternal life, is to believe, have faith in the Son of God, Jesus Christ to salvation.
To receive eternal life, you must be saved, you must ask Jesus into your life to be the Saviour and Lord and only Master of your life.
Salvation is the perfect plan of God
Salvation by faith in Jesus Christ is the perfect plan of God. God is perfect in all his ways. God's plan of salvation is perfect.
Salvation is according to the good pleasure of the will of God
Salvation by faith in Jesus Christ is according to the good pleasure and according to the will of God. Salvation is according to the purpose of God, that all people be reconciled to the Father through the Son.
The plan of God is justification through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ.
The will of God is for all people to obtain salvation through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ.
The desire of God's heart is for no person to perish, but that all come to Him through faith in His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ.
The perfect plan of God is for ALL people to obtain salvation, for ALL people to become the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
A faith that saves is saving faith. Faith in God to salvation is saving faith. Faith in God that He is able to save me, and faith in Jesus that He will save me is saving faith.
Saving faith is faith in Christ Jesus for the salvation of your soul, believing in the promises of God that anyone who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved, believing in all the word of God, and saving faith is receiving the gift of God, eternal life through Christ Jesus.
We must believe that He is God
In order to receive salvation you must have faith in God. You must believe that God is all who He says that He is in His word. God is the Creator of the universe. God is the Creator of all mankind. God is the Creator of all things.
To receive salvation you must believe that there is one God Almighty in God the Father, and in God the Son, Jesus Christ, and in God the Holy Ghost, and these three are one God.
We must believe in One God who gives one salvation, His salvation.
To receive salvation you must believe in the Son of God, Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour over all of your life. You must believe that Jesus has always existed with God and is God.
Saving faith is believing that because of God's love, Jesus came to earth to be a propitiation for your sins. Jesus took your sins upon Himself. Jesus died on a cross for your sins and through His shed blood you can receive remission of your sins. Jesus rose from the grave and lives today, and through the resurrection of Christ Jesus, you to can live. Through salvation and repentance of sins you receive eternal life in the Kingdom of Heaven with God for all eternity.
To receive salvation you must believe only God, Jesus can remove your sins and make you whole.
Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is the only door, which anyone can enter the kingdom of God and receive eternal, everlasting life.
You must believe on Jesus Christ to be saved
All who believe will NOT die, but have eternal life
Whoever, everyone that believes in Jesus will not die, but receive eternal life.
The only way to the kingdom of God is Jesus
The word of God reads that the only way to God the Father is by Jesus.
Only Jesus saves
Salvation is received only through the name of Jesus.
Only Jesus saves. Only Jesus can save us from our sins and death.
Salvation is not in any other name, there is no other name under heaven give to the human race, whereby all must be saved, only the name of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
Only Jesus removes our sins
Only through the name of Jesus can anyone receive remission of all sins.
Christ is the sacrifice for the sins of the whole world.
Jesus promises to return a second time.
Believe Jesus and be born again
All people who believe Jesus is the Christ is born of God. If you love God you love his Son, Jesus Christ.
Who can overcome the world? All who believe that Jesus is the Son of God.
The word of God reads that only people who are born again will see the kingdom of God.
There are no options, no works, no good deeds, no other way, the word of God states over and over again, that only people who are born again will receive eternal life and see the kingdom of God.
Salvation is only obtained through faith in Jesus Christ
Only faith in Jesus, the Son of God saves us, nothing else can save us.
We are saved by grace through faith. Nothing we can do on our own can save us, no good deeds, no special talents, no money, nothing can save us from our sins and death, except faith in Jesus Christ.
Salvation is the gift of God, by the grace of God, through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ.
We are saved by the grace of God, through faith, belief in Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
The plan of salvation are the steps any person must take to receive salvation.
The Plan of Salvation is written by God, in the word of God, which shows us what we must do to receive eternal life.
Plan of Salvation:
I. Know that God Loves You
God sacrificed His only begotten Son, Jesus, that through the death of God's Son, we might live.
We can say: ”God loves me”
II. Know that You are a Sinner
If we break any one of God's laws, we are a sinner.
One of these laws is:
"Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor"
Have you ever lied? If you have lied, God says you are a sinner.
We can say: “I am a sinner, because I have sinned”
III. Know You are now Dead In Sin
You are dead in sin until you accept Christ as your personal Saviour.
God says all that sin will receive eternal death, separated from God for eternity.
What is eternal death?
We can say: “I am dead in my sins”
IV. It is a Fact that Christ Died For You
We can say: "Christ died for me"
V. It is a Fact that You can be Saved by Personal Faith in Jesus Christ
Why must we believe in Jesus to be saved?
Believe in Jesus
All people are created by God. All people are born into existence by the breath of God. God knows every creature before they are born.
We are all created by God, but we are not IN God, we are not OF God, until we ask Him into our lives to be our Lord and Saviour.
God is not IN us, we are not IN God, until we confess and repent of our sins and believe in Him for salvation from sin and place our complete trust in Him to guide our lives.
We are created by God, but we do not have God living IN our hearts, until we make the choice to believe in Him for all our needs, and ask Him into our hearts.
We are born with a void, a spiritual void, that only God Himself can fill.
We are all born searching for God. Some people take longer than others to accept the love of God and gift of salvation, and sadly some people never do.
Some people accept God into their lives the very first time they hear His voice calling them.
Some people reject the love of God all their life, never receiving salvation, and never will see God.
Some people accept God for a while, but then let the cares of this world separate them from the love of God, and turn away from the truth, and are not saved.
Some people reject God most of their life, but during the last part of their life, they confess and repent of their sins and accept Him into their life and are saved.
All these people have one thing in common, God called them ALL. God calls every person on this earth to Him.
You may have heard someone preach a sermon or read scriptures out of a Holy Bible, and at that time you were saved, but it was God that called you to salvation. God calls us all to salvation. God calls us all to Him.
Many preachers have preached the message of God, by they didn't save anyone. Only God saves anyone from sin and death. God saves.
How are we saved? We are saved by the call of God, which is by the grace of God. By the grace and mercy of God, He calls us all to Him.
We are not saved by flesh, nothing external in this world can save us. By hearing the Spirit of God we are saved.
God calls to us all to come home to Him. God patiently and gently calls all people to Him. God called me and He calls you. I answered God's call, have you?
God is waiting and wanting to fill the void in our hearts with His fullness. God is able to fill the void in our lives.
Only the love of God can satisfy our soul. We were all made by God to be OF God, by obtaining salvation. It is the will of God for all people to obtain salvation, by the grace of God through faith in God.
God is love and peace, and only with God in us, can we know love and peace in our lives. Nothing else in this world can fill the void; only God can fill the emptiness inside our hearts, inside our soul.
God wants to fill the painful emptiness inside of us all, only God can heal our aching heart.
Through salvation we receive God in us. Through salvation God abides in us and we abide in Him, only through salvation. Salvation is received in us, inside us, by God's grace through belief in Jesus Christ the Lord.
God calls all people to Him. He called me and he has called you.
Have you heard God calling your name? Is He calling you now? Please don't reject His call, accept Him into your life and receive your abundant and eternal life that He is waiting to give to you.
Are you ready for salvation?
You are ready for salvation when you:
After you believe in Jesus, you will want to pray and ask Jesus for forgiveness of your sins and for the gift of eternal life.
The prayer of salvation
As with every prayer that you pray, you want to pray from your whole heart and sincerely to the one true living God.
This is an example, a model of a prayer that you can pray to receive God's free gift of salvation though His Son, Jesus Christ. You can use your own words from your own heart.
Prayer for Salvation:
Realize that no one else but God can save you. No one can say this prayer for you. No one can save you but yourself alone.
Realize that just reading this prayer will NOT save you.
Your salvation prayer must come from deep within your heart.
You must ask Jesus personally to come into your life, save you from your sins, and believe with all your heart.
The actual words of the prayer does not really matter, what does matter is that you realize that you need God, that you need a Saviour for your life. What matters is that you ask God into your life, ask Jesus to become your Master, your Saviour, your Lord. When you ask God to enter your heart, give you His salvation, sincerely, you will be saved.
If you were just saved, please let us know. Confess your salvation and faith in Jesus.
Some people may say, "I think I'll just wait and get saved later", but you know, you are NOT guaranteed 'a later'.
No one is guaranteed a tomorrow.
You are not guaranteed a tomorrow, but you are guaranteed death. We will all die someday.
What if you died today? or tomorrow? People die every day.
If you died today, where would you spend your eternity?
In Hell, if you are not saved.
It does not matter, if you don't believe in hell. Heaven and hell exists rather you believe in them or not.
Hell exists whether you believe in it or not.
When you die you will go to hell, if you are not born again, if you are NOT saved, if you do not believe in Jesus Christ and ask him to be the Lord of your life, you will perish in your sins.
By faith we are saved, and by that the same faith we have assurance of our salvation.
We are given confidence in our salvation, full assurance of hope, much assurance by the Holy Ghost, wisdom to know we are saved in full assurance of faith by God Himself, because His Spirit confirms to our spirit that we truly are saved (1 Thessalonians 1:4-5; Colossians 2:2; Hebrews 6:11; 10:22; 1 John 5:10-11, 19).
God shows His own assurance that they are His children (Romans 1:19). The things of God, the deep things of God are revealed, shown to those who are of God, the children of God are manifest with the knowledge of the salvation of God (Matthew 11:27; Luke 10:22; 1 Corinthians 2:10-16).
Yes, you can be confident of your salvation. You can have assurance of your salvation.
You can know without a doubt that you are saved and will spent eternity in the kingdom of God (2 Peter 1:11).
God promises everyone that they can have salvation assurance, through His word (1 John 2:25).
The word of God reads that if you:
If you believe and do all the above, the word of God reads you are saved, will pass from death into eternal life and to the kingdom of God.
To be confident you have salvation and you are going to Heaven, answer these questions:
You are not ready to live, until you are ready to die.
You will be ready to become who God wants you to be when you realize God is enough.
To die is gain because we will be with Christ Jesus our LORD God and Saviour.
When we die our spirit and soul separates from our earthly bodies and we are present with our Lord in Heaven.
Absent from the body is to be present with the Lord Jesus (2 Corinthians 5:8).
The dictionary defines repentance as the act or process of repenting especially for misdeeds or moral shortcomings; to repent is to turn away from sin and dedicate oneself to the amendment of one’s life.
I find it interesting that even the secular world knows that repentance is turning from sin, but so few Christians do it.
The word of God reads we all must have repentance for the remission of sins.
When we ask Jesus to forgive us of our sins and we turn from sin, the change in turning away from sin is repentance.
Repentance is always change.
True repentance is turning away from sin.
True repentance is not repeating the sin, that we asked Jesus to forgive.
If you ask Jesus to forgive you of a certain sin, knowing that you are going to repeat the same sin again, this is NOT repentance.
True repentance is asking Jesus to forgive you of sin and turning away from that sin, not repeating it ever again.
You cannot fool God. Jesus knows what is in your heart. If you do NOT sorrowfully ask God for forgiveness and turn from sin, you have not truly repented from your sin.
Salvation is promised by God to all who repent of sin.
You must be purposefully committed to repent and to receive forgiveness of your sins.
True repentance comes from within your heart. You have a change of heart when you are saved and repent of your sins. Your heart hurts. You will not sin against God. With the power of God, given to all believers, you repent with your whole heart and turn from sin.
How can I stop sinning? With help from God, with the power God gave you when you became His child. God says all his children are able to stop sinning.
When you are saved, you become a child of God, you are in the family of God. Sin has no power over the children of God. Sin has no power over you anymore. You are released from the bondage of sin, by the blood that Jesus shed for you on the cross.
Salvation is being saved, and we are saved from sin and death by the power of God.
Christ abides in the children of God, God dwells inside of you, you have power of the Holy Spirit. The children of God have the power of God.
If someone continues in sin, living in sin, abiding in sin, living for sin, purposefully sinning day in and day out, they have not received salvation. Through Jesus Christ, through salvation we are saved from sin and death. The effect of salvation is release from the bondage of sin, by the power of God, Jesus Christ. When someone says that they are saved, or are a Christian and lives in hate and lives in sin, commits sin, lives unrighteously, they are only kidding themselves, God does not know them. Salvation is a change of heart, God renews our heart and our mind, we are released from sin and live in righteousness toward God, because of God and through salvation we are made a new living creature, we are born again into the righteousness of God. God says His own cannot live in sin and unrighteousness.
The word of God reads that if you have never turned away from your sins, then you have never repented of your sins.
If you have never repented from your sins, turned from living in sin to living for God, completely turned away from sin, you have never repented from your sins.
And we know from scripture that without repentance there is NO remission of sin. Without remission of sin NO ONE can receive eternal life.
If you have never repented of your sin, then you have never received forgiveness of your sin from God. Without forgiveness from your sin, your destiny is eternal death without repentance, because the wages of sin is death, eternal death which is separation from God for eternity.
God says that without repentance you are still in your sin, workers of iniquity, who will never see God, because says that the wages of sin is death.
The word of God reads that anyone who sins must repent or perish. Anyone who sins must repent or perish.
The lost and the saved, ALL PEOPLE who sin must repent.
Sinners need repentance
What a wonderful thought, that there is actually joy in heaven when just one sinner repents!
Everyone everywhere must repent
God commands that all people everywhere repent.
Repentance is not a suggestion from God, it is a command from God.
Is there any sin that you have committed that you have not repented of to God?
The only way to receive forgiveness from sin is to repent of sin.
God says in His word that NO SIN will enter into heaven, UNRIGHTEOUSNESS will NOT be in the presence of God.
The UNRIGHTEOUSNESS, those people who do NOT repent of sin will NOT inherit the kingdom of God, enter into Heaven.
Without repentance NO ONE can see God.
To receive the promise of God we must repent.
God promises everlasting life to all who repent and have faith in Him. God does not want any person to perish, to die in their sin.
Make a choice - repent or perish
If you do NOT repent, you will perish.
The word of God reads the lost and the saved, all are to repent or perish.
The LORD is coming soon
We are all to repent because the world's judgment is coming soon, the return of Jesus Christ is at hand, near.
Repent for remission of sin
When we whole heartedly repent from our sins, they are removed from us completely, are sins are blotted out.
Repent because God loves us
Backsliders are to repent or be disciplined
Only godly sorrow works true repentance
Telling God you repent, and then continually repeat and repeat the same sin is NOT repentance.
The word of God reads that godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation, not to be repented of again and again.
The non sincere repentance of the world works death. The world says they are sorry but never change, these people's repentance end in death, but the sorrow of the world worketh death.
True repentance is always change and action.
True repentance is actively showing the world you are different because you are now a child of God by living for Christ and not living for yourself any longer. Repentance is action by doing the will of God.
The scriptures tell us that God's salvation is conditional. Certain conditions must be meet by us toward God, in order for us to receive His gift of salvation.
Salvation requires God
There is only One God who gives one salvation.
Salvation is conditional because salvation requires God. Salvation belongs to God and only God can give salvation. God is the author and finisher of salvation. No one receives salvation without God. You would think that is would not need to be said, but so many people remove God from their belief of salvation. Salvation does NOT require our works, our duty, our service, our efforts, our righteousness, our goodness, we cannot do anything to obtain salvation.
Salvation is the operation of God (Colossians 2:12). God gives us a new heart to serve Him and gives us power to obey His will, through salvation. Without the salvation of God we are unable to do the will of God. All people without salvation, the lost, do not perform the will of God, they perform their own will, not God's will. Salvation cannot be obtained without God.
Salvation requires faith in Jesus Christ
Salvation is conditional because salvation requires faith in Jesus Christ. Without faith in Jesus Christ, no one obtains the salvation of God. We become the children of God through faith in Christ Jesus. Without faith it is impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:6).
God the Father gave His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, the power to save, to give eternal life to all who believe in Him. There is NO salvation without faith in Christ Jesus. The plan of God the Father is a perfect plan to salvation.
The word of God is God's revelation to all people that eternal life is through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ (Romans 6:23). Jesus is the way, the door to eternal life. Eternal life is Jesus. Through faith in Jesus we can receive everlasting life in the Kingdom of God for eternity.
Salvation requires admitting we have sin
Salvation is conditional because salvation requires realizing we are sinners. God says all people have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). In that the first man, Adam, sinned against God, all human beings are born into sin. The wages of sin is death to all human beings. Death passed to all humans by Adam (Romans 5:12). No human being is good (Luke 18:19). No human being is good enough to be reconciled to God by ourselves.
Salvation requires repentance
Salvation is conditional because salvation requires repentance of sin. God does not want anyone to perish, but wants us all to come to repentance, to repent and obtain salvation (2 Peter 3:9).
Repentance is the act of turning away from our sin and turning to the righteousness of God. Repentance is required by all people who receive salvation (Luke 13:3). Our sins are forgiven by God only with our godly sincere heartfelt repentance (Acts 3:19).
Genuine repentance is turning away from sin to God and NOT going back to that sin again.
Christ gives everyone, who has faith in Him, the ability and the power to turn away from sin, which is to repent from sin (Acts 3:26).
Salvation requires forgiveness of sin from God
Salvation requires forgiveness of sin by Christ Jesus. Through godly sorrow of our sins and by turning away from all sin in our life, we can receive forgiveness of all our sins.
When we confess we have sin to God and then repent, turn away from sin, we can receive forgiveness of sin through faith in Christ Jesus (1 John 1:9.
Sin will never live with God (1 Corinthians 15:50). Our sins must be purged from us, in order for us to be with God in His Kingdom for eternity. Sin must be separated from us in order for us to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Sin must be washed away from our hearts in order to see God.
No one can forgive our sins but God (Mark 2:7; Luke 5:21).
No human being on this earth can forgive our sins.
The plan of God the Father was for His Son, Jesus Christ, to forgive our sins (Matthew 9:6; Mark 2:10; Luke 5:24; Acts 5:31). Jesus, God the Son, is the mediator between all humankind and God the Father (Hebrews 9:28). Our sins are forgiven through Jesus Christ (Ephesians 1:7; 4:32).
What are we supposed to do after salvation? Is that it?
Salvation is NOT an end - but a beginning. Salvation is the beginning of life, abundant life, eternal life.
Salvation is not the end, but the beginning of your new life in Christ Jesus.
Through salvation you are born again.
Salvation is your first step toward your eternity with God, your eternal life with the Creator, your God, your Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
Salvation is your first step of faith, walking in the Spirit of God for the rest of your life and beyond, throughout eternity, which is never ending, without end.
Salvation is not temporary, salvation is eternal for all who remain in the faith.
Salvation is for eternity.
The moment you receive the free gift from God of salvation, is the same moment you receive eternal life.
Eternal life does not happen after you die. Salvation, eternal life happens the moment you accept Jesus Christ into your heart as your personal Lord and Saviour over your life.
Salvation is eternal life. Your eternal life with God begins the day you accept salvation.
Too many people stop after salvation. They think that since they are saved, that's all they are required to do by God, which is very wrong.
Salvation is the very beginning of life.
The word of God tells us that receiving salvation is just the beginning of our life with God.
The word of God tells us we must work out our own salvation.
We only receive salvation through faith in Jesus Christ by the grace of Jesus.
Salvation faith is the key - to the door of Jesus Christ - though which we enter into the kingdom of God.
Now that we have unlocked the door, through our faith in Jesus, to the kingdom of God, we need to walk through the door and start our journey toward our eternal life in heaven.
A lot of people receive salvation, unlock their door and just sit down. You can't get anywhere by sitting down!! Get up!!
It is NOT God's plan for our life to stop, after we receive His gift of love, which is the gift of eternal life, which is salvation. God doesn't want us to just sit down. God wants us to get busy, start living!
God says, don't stop after salvation. Salvation is just the beginning.
So many believers miss out on what it really means to be saved, to be a follower of Christ, to receive eternal life.
So many believers never receive all the gifts from God, because they stop after salvation and never follow after Jesus.
God wants to give special gifts to all of His children.
God wants to love us and God wants to give to us so many things.
God wants believers to:
Love God, Love everyone, Live in Love
Love is the way to God because God is love.
Love is the first step toward the kingdom of God.
Love is NOT an option with God.
Without love - God cannot know you, and you cannot know God without love.
Choose the narrow path
The wide gate and broad road is the way of the world, the road to hell.
The way of the world is following the lusts of the flesh, following the sinful ways of the world, living in sin and unrighteousness.
Following the ways of the world leads to separation from God. We must follow the ways of Christ to enter into heaven.
The way of the world, wide gate and broad road, this path leads to destruction and death and separation from God.
The strait gate and narrow path is the way to life, the way to righteousness and leads to the kingdom of God and eternal life.
For more information on choosing the right path see - CHOICES
Are you one of the few that found the strait and narrow path and stay on the narrow path of righteousness to God?
Follow Jesus Christ
Follow Jesus and walk in His ways of righteousness.
In order to follow Christ, we must deny ourselves, we must put away our selfish ways and look toward Jesus.
Salvation is denying our selfish sinful pleasures of the flesh and putting on the righteousness of Christ Jesus.
Salvation is following the ways of Christ, not following our ways.
Salvation is obeying the rules of God, not our own rules.
Salvation is saying YES to righteousness, and saying NO to sin.
Salvation is living a holy and godly life, not a life of sin and unrighteousness.
Walk in His ways
God tells us time and time again in His scriptures that He wants us to walk in His ways. And to do that we must get up and follow Christ.
To walk in the ways of Christ, means not to sin, to live the way Christ lived, to be like Christ.
How can we walk in the ways of the Lord? We must study the word of God to know how to live the will of God, in the ways of the Lord. We must pray to learn the will of God. We must keep our focus on Jesus to walk in the ways of the Lord.
When we are saved, when we believe in Jesus Christ, and we ask Jesus into our lives to be our Lord and Savior, something beautiful happens inside our heart and inside our soul.
Salvation is a heart condition, a heart transplant, salvation transforms your heart.
A peace fills your soul and your heart is changed forever with the love of God. It is a wonderful, amazing transformation.
Salvation changes people. Salvation turns us into a new person.
The scriptures of God do NOT say that you might be changed, God says YOU WILL BE CHANGED.
God says that ALL PEOPLE who receive salvation become new creatures.
We are crucified with Christ
Salvation enables people to put on Christ, Christ lives in believers, we live by faith in the Son of God, Jesus, who loved us so much that He died, gave Himself for all of us.
Just as Christ was crucified on a cross, when we believe in Jesus and accept Him as our Lord and Saviour over all of our life, we are also crucified to sin. We die to sin and live IN Christ. We repent of sin and put sin away from our lives and live for God and follow Jesus for the rest of our lives.
What is the ONE THING that separates anyone from God?
Unbelief separates anyone from God for eternity.
Unbelief in God to salvation, the lack of faith in God to be saved by Him alone, is the only thing that keeps anyone from receiving the salvation of God.
The only thing that separates you, or anyone, from God is lack of faith, which is unbelief.
Unbelief in God for salvation prevents anyone from receiving God's gift of salvation. If you do not believe that God can save you from sin and death, then you cannot be saved. If you do not believe that God can give you eternal life, by faith to salvation, then you cannot be saved.
Unbelief in God separates anyone from eternity with God. Every person receives an eternity after they die, either you will spend eternity with God or without God. Your eternal destination depends on your choice while you are alive here on this earth, either you accept God's salvation, or you don't.
From Old Testament people to people today, it has been the same since the beginning of time, and will be until the end of time, the ONLY THING that keeps people from receiving the salvation of God is UNBELIEF, the lack of FAITH in God to receive His salvation.
In order to receive the salvation of God, you must believe that God is who He is and that He is able to save you, and that He will save you from sin and death. (Hebrews 11:6)
God will accept no less than faith in Him for His salvation. Every soul that comes to God must believe that He is the only One True Jehovah Almighty Lord God. It is that simple.
Faith to salvation is believing that God is all who He says that He is in His word and that He alone will give you His salvation from sin and death.
What is faith? Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things that are not seen (Hebrews 11:1).
Faith is believing in God, who we cannot see, and knowing He loves us, and knowing we will receive all the promises He gives, that we will receive the salvation of our souls, which is eternal life in His Kingdom forever.
Faith is believing God loves us and sent His Son to save us, and that by Him we are saved and will receive eternal life.
We are to have unwavering faith, steadfast faith, enduring faith to the end, because we love God. The Scriptures tell us that, if we love God, then we obey God (John 14:23).
Those of us with believing living faith in God to salvation, are reminded by God, "not to be high-minded", but remain in the fear of God, obeying God, loving God, that we may lose nothing.
Those of us with believing faith in God to salvation must remain steadfast in our faith, rooted down deep in the faith of God, holding on to the promise of God with all our heart, with all our might, with all our strength, so that we don't come short receiving the end of our faith which is the salvation of our souls, eternal life in the Kingdom of Heaven.
We are either with faith or we are without faith. By faith we are either with God or without God. We either have faith that God is all He says He is, or we have faith that He isn't.
We either believe in Jesus Christ to the saving of our souls, or we abide in unbelief. The salvation of our souls is received in full at the end of our faith, which is the end of our life, at our death, when we see Jesus face to face.
The unbelieving forfeit their inheritance into Heaven, into the Kingdom of God, through their unbelief.
The Scriptures warn us all to guard our faith, because unbelief can occur in the heart of anyone. No one is exempt from falling into unbelief. God promises that if we remain in Him that He will remain in us.
When we die and meet God, we will either be holding onto faith or holding onto unbelief. All those with unbelief will be asked to depart from God's presence (Matthew 7:21-23). All those with living faith in His Son to salvation will be asked to enter into the Kingdom of God for eternity.
