Blessed are those who wash their Robes

Revelation 22:14 Blessed are those who wash their robes that they may have right to the tree of life and may enter by the gates into the city.

Revelation 7:14 And I said to him, My lord, you know. And he said to me, These are those who come out of the great tribulation, and they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

 

We keep our robes, our living clean, by the blood of the Lamb.  Confessing our sins to the Lord.  Praise the Lord for the Blood of the Lamb!  Stay tuned more to come tomorrow…

Christ a Light to the Gentiles and the Glory of Israel

Luke 2:30 For my eyes have seen Your salvation,

31 Which You have prepared before the face of all the peoples,

32 A light for revelation to the Gentiles and the glory of Your people Israel.

 

Acts 13:46 And Paul and Barnabas spoke boldly and said, It was necessary for the word of God to be spoken to you first. Since you thrust it away and do not judge yourselves worthy of eternal life, behold, we turn to the Gentiles.

47 For so the Lord has commanded us, “I have set you as a light of the Gentiles, that you would be for salvation unto the uttermost part of the earth.”

48 And the Gentiles, hearing this, rejoiced and glorified the word of the Lord; and as many as were appointed to eternal life believed.

 

 

These are some verses I have been enjoying recently.  The above verses are a quotation from Isaiah 49:6, where Christ is prophesied to be a light for the gentiles and the glory of his people Israel.  Since the jews had rejected Christ as the savior he and the apostles turned to the gentiles that the salvation of God would reach the entire earth!  Awesome!

Believing unto Righteousness

Romans 10:4 For Christ is the end of the law unto righteousness to everyone who believes.

9 That if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved;

10 For with the heart there is believing unto righteousness, and with the mouth there is confession unto salvation.

Romans 4:3 For what does the Scripture say? “And Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him as righteousness.”

Genesis 15:6 And he believed Jehovah, and He accounted it to him as righteousness.

 

*I Apologize to everyone for not posting in a while.  We had a death in the family last week and had to take care of some things.

 

Where would we be without Romans chapter 10?  The christian life would be quite different.  But thank God for this chapter in the bible!  In the old testament in order to be right with God you had to follow or keep the ten commandments.  If you did so you were righteous.  However in the New Testament faith in Christ is the requirement to be right with God.  That’s why Romans 10 tells us that Christ is the end of the law unto righteousness to everyone who believes.  Praise the lord for Christ!

Splendid Salvation

1 Peter 1:2 Chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father in the sanctification of the Spirit unto the obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace to you and peace be multiplied.

Ephesians 1:4 Even as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world to be holy and without blemish before Him in love,

 

We were chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, in the sanctification of the Spirit, and this was unto the obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ.   This is the operation of the Divine Trinity to  bring us into his full salvation.  Have you ever realized that your salvation is carried out, applied by the Trinity?  What kind of God do you have?  Well, the bible definitely reveals that God is triune.  Which means that he is one and three at the same time!  Lol! We were selected by the Father, but this selection is carried out, applied by the Spirit coming to sanctify us.  To separate us unto God from everything else.  This result of this sanctifying is that we repent, believe into Christ and his redemption.  This is the obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ God the Son.  So you have all three involved in bringing sinners into his full salvation. Splendid!

Our Crucifixion with Christ

Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live in faith, the faith of the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.

Colossians 3:3 For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.

2 Corinthians 5:14 For the love of Christ constrains us because we have judged this, that One died for all, therefore all died;

 

Christ not only died for our sins, but he also died for us, the sinners.  On one hand yes, he died to take away our sins.  These are likened to crimes that we have committed.  Yet on the other hand Christ died for us the persons, the criminals.  Both are awesome!  Thank you Lord!

Whoever calls upon the Name of the Lord shall be Saved

Acts 2:21 And it shall be that everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Rom. 10:12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord is Lord of all and rich to all who call upon Him;

13 For “whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

2 Timothy 2:22 But flee youthful lusts, and pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

 

Call upon his name and enjoy all his riches!

Salvation is the Gift of God

Ephesians 2:4 But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,

5 Even when we were dead in offenses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved)

8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not of yourselves; it is the gift of God;

9 Not of works that no one should boast.

 

Salvation is the free gift of God to all of mankind.  I would like to point us three things concerning this salvation according to the above verses.

1.  “By grace you have been saved”

2.  This not of yourselves”

3.  “Not of works that no one should boast”

 

Salvation is carried out by the awesome grace of God!  We should pray, Lord save me by your grace today.  This salvation is not of ourselves.  We are not the source, origin of our salvation because the source is God himself.  This is something of God!  And lastly this salvation is not of works that no one should boast.  We can’t accumulate a bunch of “good” works that will achieve salvation or win us a free ticket to heaven.  Nope.  It’s not of works!  It is the free gift of God!  Praise Him!
