2—SALVATION

SALVATION.
Salvation (Gk. soteria) means “deliverance,” “bringing safely through,” “keeping from harm”; it is described in the Bible as “the way” or road that leads through life to eternal fellowship with God in heaven (Mat. 7:14; Mark 12:14; John 14:6; Acts 16:17; cp. Acts 9:2; 22:4; Heb. 10:20; 2Pet. 2:2,21). This road of salvation must be walked to the very end.

WE CAN DESCRIBE SALVATION AS ONE WAY WITH TWO SIDES AND THREE STAGES:

(1) The one-way of salvation. Christ is the way to the Father (John 14:6; Acts 4:12). Salvation is provided for us by God's grace, which He gives in Christ Jesus (Rom. 3:24), based on His death (3:25; 5:8), resurrection (5:10), and continued intercession for believers (Heb. 7:25).

(2) The two sides of salvation. Salvation is received by (1)grace, through (2)faith in Christ (Rom. 3:22,24-25,28). That is, it comes as a result of God's grace (John 1:16) and the human response of faith (Acts 16:31; Rom. 1:17; Eph. 1:15; 2:8; see Rom. 5:21).

(3) The three stages of salvation.

  • (a) The past stage of salvation includes the personal experience by which we as believers receive forgiveness of sins (Acts 10:43; Rom. 4:6-8) and pass from spiritual death to spiritual life (see John 3:3; 1John 3:14), from the power of sin to the power of the Lord (Rom. 6:17-23), from the dominion of Satan to the dominion of God (Acts 26:18). It brings us into a new personal relationship with God (John 1:12) and rescues us from the penalty of sin (Rom. 1:16; 6:23; 1Cor. 1:18).
  • (b) The present stage of salvation saves us from the practice and dominion of sin, filling us with the Holy Spirit. It includes:
    • (1) the privilege of a person-to-person relationship with God as our Father and Jesus as our Lord and Savior (Mat. 6:9; John 14:18-23; see Gal. 4:6);
    • (2) the call to reckon ourselves dead to sin (Rom. 6:1-14) and
    • to submit to the leading of the Holy Spirit (Rom. 8:1-16) and the Word of God (John 8:31; 14:21; 2Tim. 3:15-16);
    • (3) the invitation to be filled with the Holy Spirit and the command to keep being filled (see Acts 2:33-39; Eph. 5:18; see Acts 2:4);
    • (4) the demand to separate ourselves from sin (Rom. 6:1-14) and the present perverse generation (Acts 2:40; 2Cor. 6:17); and
    • (5) the call to wage constant battle for God's kingdom against Satan and his demonic host (2Cor. 10:4-5; Eph. 6:11,16; 1Pet. 5:8).
  • (c) The future stage of salvation (Rom. 13:11-12; 1Thes. 5:8-9; 1Pet. 1:5) includes:
    • (1) our deliverance from the coming wrath of God (Rom. 5:9; 1Cor. 3:15; 5:5; 1Thes. 1:10; 5:9);
    • (2) our sharing the divine glory (Rom. 8:29; 2Thes. 2:13-14) and receiving a resurrected or transformed body (1Cor. 15:49-52); and
    • (3) our receiving rewards as faithful overcomers (see Rev. 2:7, note). This future salvation is the goal toward which all Christians strive (1Cor. 9:24-27; Php. 3:8-14). All present warnings, discipline, and punishment have as their purpose that believers should not forfeit this future salvation (1Cor. 5:1-13; 9:24-27; Phil. 2:12,16; 2Pet. 1:5,11; see Heb. 12:1).
