Salvation, 21of34


~ God’s Open Invitation To ALL ~

 

 

 

Salvation is not a Reward for the Righteous.

 

It is an available Gift for those who understand their Guilt!

 

The plan of salvation remains open to “whosoever” which includes you!  Consider first the contrast of The Law with The Good News of Jesus Christ.

 

 

Warnings Of The Law  ~  “‘And you shall make from these a holy anointing oil, an ointment compounded according to the art of the perfumer.  It shall be a holy anointing oil.  With it you shall anoint the tabernacle of meeting and the ark of the Testimony  …   

 

 

Whoever compounds any like it, or whoever puts any of it on an outsider, shall be cut off from his people.’  And the Lord said to Moses: ‘Take sweet spices, stacte and onycha and galbanum, and pure frankincense with these sweet spices; there shall be equal amounts of each.  You shall make of these an incense, a compound according to the art of the perfumer, salted, pure, and holy.  And you shall beat some of it very fine, and put some of it before the Testimony in the tabernacle of meeting where I will meet with you.  It shall be most holy to you.  But as for the incense which you shall make, you shall not make any for yourselves, according to its composition.  It shall be to you holy for the Lord.  Whoever makes any like it, to smell it, he shall be cut off from his people’” (Exodus 30:25-26, 33-38). 

 

 

“And whoever offers a sacrifice of a peace offering to the Lord, to fulfill his vow, or a freewill offering from the cattle or the sheep, it must be perfect to be accepted; there shall be no defect in it” (Leviticus 22:21-22). 

 

 

“Whoever touches the body of anyone who has died, and does not purify himself, defiles the tabernacle of the Lord.  That person shall be cut off from Israel.  He shall be unclean, because the water of purification was not sprinkled on him; his uncleanness is still on him” (Numbers 19:13).  

 

 

Salvation Promises  ~  “As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.  For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.  For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved” (John 3:14-17).

 

“Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life.  He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.  And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die.  Do you believe this?’  She said to Him, ‘Yes, Lord, I believe that You are the Christ, the Son of God, who is to come into the world’” (John 11:25-27). 

 

 

“And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Acts 2:21). 

 

 

“For the Scripture says, ‘Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.’  For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him.  For ‘whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved’” (Romans 10:11-13). 

 

 

 

Salvation Warnings  ~  “When He had called the people to Himself, with His disciples also, He said to them, ‘Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.  For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel's will save it.  For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?  Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?  For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels’” (Mark 8:34-38). 

 

 

Do not love the world or the things in the world.  If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.  For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world.  And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever” (1 John 2:15-17).   

 

 

 

The Christian’s Condition  ~  Jesus said, “Whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock” (Matthew 7:24-25). 

 

 

Jesus also said, “Whoever does the will of My Father in heaven is My brother and sister and mother” (Matthew 12:50).   

 

 

 

The Farewell Invitation  ~  “And the Spirit and the bride say, ‘Come!’  And let him who hears say, ‘Come!’  And let him who thirsts come.  Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely” (Revelation 22:17).
