Salvation






Salvation means being saved from the power of sin and from hell, the eternal penalty for that sin. Through the process of salvation, we are freed from everything that could prevent us from enjoying eternal life with God Almighty. We have all violated the principles of Truth in the Word of God Almighty.


What must we do to be saved?

1.We have all sinned against God Almighty with our words, thoughts and intents of the heart; even to our family, friends and strangers. 
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;-Romans 3:23 (KJV) For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.-Romans 6:23 (KJV)
 2. We need to ask forgiveness, repent, and receive Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour. We need to turn from our sinful ways. 
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.-Romans 10:9-10 (KJV)  If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
-1 John 1:9 (KJV)
 3. Then we are born again (A spiritual change from sinfulness to righteousness). 
Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.-John 3:3 (KJV) Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.-2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJV)

4. Public declaration, through baptism, of our faith in Jesus Christ. It is a covenant in the presence of men and women. God Almighty Himself and the angels are watching as well. 
Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.-Acts 2:38 (KJV) He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.-Mark 16:16 (KJV)

5. Those who have been born again are now justified by faith of Jesus Christ. 
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:-Ephesians 2:8 (KJV)

6. This is only the beginning of our journey with Jesus Christ. We are all a work in progress, which leads to sanctification, to make holy, set apart. 
And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.-1 Thessalonians 5:23 (KJV)

Work with God Almighty, Pray, read God’s Word being led by the Holy Spirit. God Almighty does His part and we do our part.

All Glory to God Almighty

God Bless you all
