Salvation is a person

Posted: December 6, 2012 in christian living, ecclesia, Jesus

You see salvation is not in a plan, salvation is not in scripture verses, and salvation is not in ordinances and all the scheme of theology, salvation is not in decision, salvation is not in a pronouncement of an evangelist, or a pastor, or a teacher. Salvation is a person. This is the cardinal truth of our day. Salvation isn’t from a person only, it is, but salvation is a person. David saw this in Psalm 27:1″The Lord is my light and my salvation;” again we have it: “He that hath the son, hath life, life is in the son, he that hath not the son shall not see life but the wrath of God abideth upon him.”

You understand therefore, that salvation is Christ. He is our light, He is our salvation. He didn’t die to send it, He died to become it and He isn’t just some Savior because He’s in heaven, it has to be in you. Now, Paul wrote to the church at Corinth in the second letter the thirteenth chapter and the fifth verse and said: “Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith: prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, know that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?”  So, it isn’t just Christ on the cross, or Christ in the tomb, or Christ raised from the dead on the thrown, but it is Christ in us, in you, the hope of Glory. -Paris Reidhead

    This posting causes me to reflect on how much the culture as well as ‘Christian’ has a reflection in our lives in adding to what is written in the Bible. When we think we are living it out while Culture is adding to it within us and we don’t even see it. Kind of like being blinded by seen. Unless God opens our eyes we stay blind. So then why does God chose to open theeys of some and keep the eyes of others closed?

      I don’t know. I know He is sovereign in all His ways, yet He tells us How His sovereignty works to a great degree. One of those is that He resists the proud but gives grace to the humble. Another is that without faith it is impossible to please Him.

    Amen to Paris (nice name)

    At the judgment Jesus will say to the unsaved, “I don’t know you”, and to the saved, “I know you”.

    Which highlights that salvation is a Person whom one must know, and He must know us.

    And the saved will know Him when they see Him.

    Paul said:

    2 Tim 1:12 For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I KNOW WHOM I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.
