Who Gives Kudos:
TheotherPaul (2)





Several years ago an elderly lady and I were discussing religion. she told me how that God had miraculously saved her. As I listened to her testimony, she told me of a horrible car crash in which she should have died but had come out of unhurt at all. We were both talking about being saved but we were not talking about it in the same context. The bible uses the words saved and salvation and sometimes it is talking about just the same sort of thing that lady had experienced. David praises God for saving him from his enemies who were out to harm and even kill him. David also talks about another kind of salvation - the kind that is a central theme throughout scripture.

A lifeguard's job is to save people who are drowning. A fireman's job often involves saving people from burning buildings. The name of Jesus means Savior: one who saves people, but what does he save people from and how?

Mat 1:21     And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

Luk 19:10    For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.

Act 4:12      Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

The bible teaches that Jesus came to save us from our sin. It teaches that all people are sinners and that death and hell are the penalties of sin. It teaches that none of our good works could pay for our sin. It teaches that Jesus death is the only accepted payment. He took upon himself the guilt and penaty for the sins of the whole world so that we might be brought back into relationship with God.

Rom 6:23    For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is]eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

God created us for a relaionship with him but when man first fell in the garden of Eden we becam sinners who were separated from a holy and just God. And God made a way for us to come back to him and have a new life in him.

Rom 5:12     Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:

Rom 5:19    For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.

In Adam we inherited sin, suffering, and death. In Christ we can have eternal life righteousness, and peace.

So Romans 6:23 says it is a choice of paying the price of our sin ourselves and ending up eternally separated from God and all that is good in the torments of hell or simply accepting the gift of God which he paid for when he suffered on the cross and having eternal life.

It seems to me a simple choice, but it requires us to admit the truth that we are sinners and that we are unable to save ourselves and that Christ is the onky way to be saved.

Act 4:12      Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Salvation from sins penalty is just part of the good news. When we accept Christ as our Savior and grow in his grace as Christians we grow in sanctification - that means that we are being saved not only from sin's penalty but over its power in our daily lives. As we walk with him we become more like Christ and as we yield to his Spirit sin loses power over us. And finally we will be saved form the presence of sin altogether in eternity. There will be no more newspaper headlines of murder and crime, no more broken relationships, no more suffering - all because Christ won the battle for us when he became our Savior.

Wouldn't you like to know that your sins are forgiven? Wouldn't you like to have access to the creator of all things who wants to have a relationship with you? Wouldn't you like to be saved from the power of those sins that are bringing misery and sorrow in your life?

If you can admit that you area sinner and unable to save yourself. If you believe that God became a man so that he could pay the price to save you from sin and hell. All that is left is for you to call out to the Lord and ask him for that gift - ask him to save you - to become your Savior and thank him for that gift that opens up a whole new world for you.

Act 16:30,31 And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved

Rom 10:13  For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Act 4:12    Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Jhn 14:6  J esus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Jhn 3:7    Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

Jhn 3:16    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Tts 3:5    Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;

Eph 2:8,9 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

 Paul, all very well said and true. I am one of those that has been saved in this life. Eternity starts the moment "we confess with our mouths and believe in our heart". One thing in order to live in victory now, we must realize it isn't us who changes ourselves, but Jesus. Many of us has changed faith into an action in which we "earn" God's action, Philippians 3:9 and be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the FAITH OF CHRIST, , the righteousness which is of God by faith. 

When we come into positive agreement with the Word, is when we start walking in the Father's Will. It really isn't our Faith that moves God, it is Christ's Faith, that moved the Father 2000 yrs ago, at the cross. 

My own healing shows that when I came into positive agreement with God's Word is when God's power was released and I was healed. It was absolutely nothing I did. 

Awesome post Paul!

TheotherPaul | Sat Feb 16, 2013, 23:02

Thanks David and Saul

For your comments and encouragement. I agree that is by grace through faith alone - and even that faith is God's gift we can"t muster up faith - it has to come from God through his word - I will definetly pray for an open door for you to preach the gospel for His glory

 Paul, it is funny you should say that about an "open door"to preach God's Word. In a few hours, I will be  standing in front of my church's Board of Elders, pitching to them the concept of a "healing class". It isn't a 1,2,3 hocus pocus class or the 7 steps to healing cause there is only one step........positive agreement with the Word, from the heart. But it will be a class designed to tell the truth and fight all the misinformation the devil and "religion" has taught. I had prepared to basically pitch the idea through demonstrating the first lesson. This morning the Holy Spirit moved me to speak directly to the Elders, so I'm tossing out what I prepared and am going to speak directly to them. How we are letting our brothers and sisters down by sugar coating the truth. The truth is when someone isn't healed it isn't God that is broken, it is our reciever that is broken, not His sender. Well I'm off to it.

TheotherPaul | Sun Feb 17, 2013, 17:02

 There are cases as well where God has his purposes in not healing - Jacob walked with a limp all his days as a reminder that It wasn't in the power of the flesh but in clinging to the Lord for his power and blessing - and Paul had a thorn in his flesh which most believe was an eye problem so that he would glory in his weaknesses and infirmities - the main thing I think is the will and glory of God - God can do anything - nothing is to hard for him
