WHAT DOES SALVATION MEAN TO YOU?


There are several Greek and Hebrew words for the word “salvation.”  They all are translated
by over 20 English words.  Amongst some of ‘salvation’s’ defining lines are: deliverance,
avenge, rescue, save, safety, preserve, help, health, victory, defend, and certainly not the least,
Savior.  

Salvation is used of “Deliverance” in
Exodus Ch. 14.
Salvation is “Victory over enemies” in
1 Samuel Ch. 14.
Salvation is “Healing of the body” in the
Book of Acts 3:6; 4:12.
Salvation is “Forgiveness of sin” in the following:
Luke 19:9;
Romans 10:9-10; Psalm 38:18-22;51:1-13;79:9
“     “ Deliverance from Captivity Psalm 14
“     “ Freedom from prison Philippians 1:19
“     “ Freedom from wrath 1Thessalonians 5:9
* Salvation in essence is everything that Jesus was, is, and has come for; having the workings
of
all redemptive power!

The Apostle Paul emphasized as he taught  the Galatians, that the Grace of God for Salvation
through faith in Jesus does not require that we work the OT law (Old Testament).  Paul knew
and had the revelation from Christ that it was not, nor is it now the OT requirements that
bring or lead to Salvation.  It is much to the effect that we receive God’s grace through our
faith in Christ.

How does Salvation come?  How is it made possible?

Again, we must note that one must initially, believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God.  We
must believe in the virgin birth of Mary, Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection.  Along with
one’s faith in Christ, Salvation comes and is made possible through the following:

* Confession (Romans 10:9; 1 John1:9)
* Grace through faith (Ephesians 2:8-9)
* Sanctification of the Spirit/Belief of the Truth (2Thessalonians 2:13)
* Through Godly sorrow (2 Corinthians 7:10)
* Faith in His blood (Romans 3:25)
* Faith in His name (Acts 4:12)

THOUGHTS FOR IMPRESSION AND REFLECTION
Salvation is a miracle!  The sad thing is, many won’t readily receive it (a miracle) for many
different reasons and perhaps, misguided information…..And yet, it is so easy to obtain and
free of charge! Yes, free of charge for all humanity.  Someone who didn’t owe the debt, paid
the ultimate price.  This beautiful miracle can come only through the door…that’s Jesus!  Jesus
declares,
“I am the door…” (John 10:7,9)  

Your salvation is based and relies on your faith in Jesus, and He alone.  It is not, nor will it
ever be based upon your religiosity, traditions, or the rudiments of this world, which you now
live.  (Mt. 15:6; Mk. 7:13;Rom. 3:3;4:14; Col. 2:6-8,20-22)  Your Salvation is not even based on
your ability to obey the Laws or practices of the Old Covenant of the Law.  Salvation cannot
be limited to the initial redemptive process, where we accept Christ, confess our sins, and are
forgiven of our sins.  Examine  further examples of Salvation in some of its original
translations.

-Saving To be delivered from and preserved from destruction/judgment (Hebrews 11:7) as
considered during Noah’s flood.
-Saved from our enemies (Luke 1:71)
-Saved from our sins (Romans 10:1,9-10)
-Delivered from slavery (Acts 7:25)
-Health preserved of life/physical health (Acts 27:34)
