The Apostle Paul’s Gospel of Salvation

Paul's Mystery Gospel that involves 'The Race' (Hebrews 12:1)
Home » Archives for Alan Manson

This Bible-based analysis of the Apostle Paul’s Gospel of Salvation tends to indicate that most Christians today have failed to meet the CONDITIONS associated with eternal salvation with Jesus Christ.

It also reveals that the FAITH LEVEL of MOST Christians today is at the very base level of faith necessary to enter the “RACE that God has set before every Christian” (Hebrews 12:1-2). This indicates they have failed to prepare themselves for the “endurance race” that God has set before every Christian to “RUN” (1 Corinthians 9:26):

"...and LET US RUN WITH PATIENCE THE RACE THAT IS SET BEFORE US,  2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith..."  (Hebrews 12:1-2)
And ye shall be HATED OF ALL MEN for my name's sake: but HE [or her] THAT ENDURETH TO THE END [to the FINISH LINE of his or her lifetime on Earth as one of My disciples] SHALL BE SAVED.”  (Matthew 10:22)
I have FOUGHT A GOOD FIGHT [with Satan’s people], I have FINISHED MY COURSE [of trials and temptations], I have KEPT THE FAITH [that was originally given the saints – Jude 1:3];”  (2 Timothy 4:7)

Presenting — Jesus Christ’s TEN Commandments

Christ’s Commandments written on the tables of the human heart

Jesus Christ presented His Ten Commandments in the form of warnings that Christians should take notice, that their Salvation is at risk. If they ignore these warnings, they will NOT inherit eternal life with Him.

In this, Jesus said:

If ye love me, keep my commandments.”  (John 14:15)

The above verse could also be interpreted as saying:

If ye [really and sincerely] love me [as you claim you do, then], keep [or OBEY each of] my commandments.”  (John 14:15)

Recently I discovered the following Ten Commandments of Jesus that are expressed in the form of ‘negative commandments’. In this, they are presented as warnings from Jesus for every Christian to take notice.  As an example, one warning in John 3:5 says they “…CANNOT ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD”.

The Eight Stages of Biblical Salvation

The image describes the eight stages of Initial and Final Salvation that are necessary for Salvation

This article will explain in detail the Eight Stages of Biblical Salvation necessary for Christians to avoid spending eternity in Hell.

Each of the above stages is essential for Christians to experience the “revelation of the mystery” to understand how to “run the race” that each Christian must “run” – spiritually.

Salvation says:  "...and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, 2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith"

“…and let us RUN WITH PATIENCE the RACE THAT IS SET BEFORE USLooking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith…”  (Heb 12:1-2)

It is every Christian’s responsibility to RUN WITH PATIENCE their RACE to avoid spending eternity in Hell.

The Gospel of Initial and Final Salvation closely associates with the Apostle Paul’s Gospel that he termed “My Gospel“. This is the ONLY Gospel that will give Christians the promises of eternal life that God has promised.

The Gospel of Initial and Final Salvation

Initial and Final Salvation

Throughout the last two centuries of Christianity, the ‘gospel’ being preached centers upon Salvation through faith alone (Eph 2:9).

However, this Faith Alone ‘gospel’ fails to address the need for any accompanying “works” mentioned in Eph 2:10. In this, Paul said, we were “…created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them“.

The Bible says that God the Father regularly inspects each christian for spiritual “fruit” (John 15:2).

The Christians symbolised as “branches” grafted into Jesus “the Vine” (John 15:5) can only produce “fruit” from “works” (James 2:26). These “works” are produced to fulfill God the Father’s will (Matt 12:50) . 

This is why God requires Christians to accept and implement Initial and Final Salvation. This is because ONLY Final Salvation accommodates both faith” + “works” and the spiritual maturity that accompanies these “works“.

Parable of the Education System

Parable of the Education System

Jesus Christ used parables to describe what the Kingdom of Heaven was like. This article represents a modern-day parable of the education system. As such systems of education are found in many countries, they are used to illustrate the Biblical truth about Salvation and how God expects His people to progress and mature from beginning (Initial Salvation) to the end (Final Salvation). 

The scripture verse that underscores the message in this post is this:

It is written in the prophets, And THEY [ALL truly 'born-again' Christians] shall be ALL TAUGHT [PERSONALLY] of God [the Father].  Every [truly 'born-again'] man [or woman] therefore that hath HEARD, and hath LEARNED of [God] THE FATHER, COMETH UNTO ME [Jesus—at the Rapture].”  (John 6:45)

Every Christian commences their faith-journey when he or she first accepts Christ as their personal Savior. This symbolizes in the parable a young child commencing their education years in kindergarten.

Final Salvation: Christians must ‘Run the ‘Race’

God has established the requirement for every Christian to “Run the Race” that has been established for them:

“…let us [meaning every Christian] RUN WITH PATIENCE THE RACE that is set before us, 2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith…”Heb 12:1-2

Once modern-day (unsaved) individuals hear the Gospel message—those who believe and then accept the ‘Good News’ by confessing Jesus Christ with their mouth, the Bible says that such people are ‘Saved’ from spending eternity in Hell (Rom 10:9-10).

However, such people are yet to run the race God has established for every Christian to embark upon and hopefully finish.

This ‘race’ is necessary because there is a Devil dwelling among us who does not like sinners ‘Saved’ out of his kingdom of lies, unbelief, sins, hatred, etc. into God’s kingdom of truth, mercy, peace and Godly love (i.e. “charity” — 2 John 1:3). 

After Satan has lost one of his own to Jesus, his role is to have such people:

Judas Iscariot and his Many Disciples

Snake Oil Salesman

Most Christians cannot conceive that Judas Iscariot had many disciples, and these would continue on preaching his beliefs well after his death.

In the article ‘Are Only FEW Christians Saved“, it showed how the Bible reveals that only a “FEW” of God’s people have been ‘saved’ throughout the history of the Earth. To appreciate the facts behind this claim, it is worthy to first understand a little more about what the Bible reveals about Judas Iscariot.

Are you one of God’s “Elect”?

God's Plumbline

This article helps Christians determine if they are one of God’s “Elect”.

The word “elect” (referring to God’s people) is written in the King James Bible 27 times. As this term closely associates with Salvation, therefore Christians should understand what it means.

‘The Elect’ is written 23 times in the New Testament, and is spoken by Jesus in the following verses:

And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but FOR THE ELECT’S SAKE those days shall be shortened.” (Matthew 24:22)

"...they [Antichrist's people] shall deceive THE VERY ELECT." (Matthew 24:24)
"...and they [God's angels] shall GATHER TOGETHER HIS ELECT..." (Matthew 24:31)

PROOF that MOST Christians are NOT SAVED!

PROOF that MOST Christians are NOT SAVED

An advertising campaign I ran some time ago using Google ads produced statistical proof that most Christians are not Saved!

To illustrate that this situation has been a pattern of God’s people throughout millennia, the Bible reveals that in the days of Noah (Luke 17:26-27) it was only Noah and his seven other family members who were saved from that world-wide flood.  If it is assumed that there were 1 billion people on the Earth at the time, this means that the percentage saved would be 0.0000008%.

Similarly, ALL of the inhabitants of the cities associated with Sodom and Gomorrah perished in the fire and brimstone that rained down upon them from Heaven — but it was only Lot and his two daughters who were saved from that catastrophe (Gen 19:24; 30).  Again, it was a very tiny percentage of people who were ‘finally Saved’ from God’s judgments.

Often the Bible talks about a “remnant” of God’s people that were saved (rather than a multitude) as can be seen in these the Bible references (Rom 9:27; 2 Kings 19:30-31; Ezra 9:8; Isa 1:9; 10:21-22; 11:16).

God’s judgment and this world

Our God is a consuming fire
Home » Archives for Alan Manson

God’s judgment upon the inhabitants of this world has happened throughout the history of mankind.

God’s judgment in ancient times

The Prophet Jeremiah identified society’s corruption in his day some 2,600-years ago. The Bible goes on to reveal how today’s corrupt world will parallel Jeremiah’s world back then. In Jeremiah’s day, the Bible reveals how God’s judgment came upon the world back then, as stated below:

An article (linked below) describes events that occurred in the days of Jeremiah the Prophet (circa 600 B.C.). Jeremiah foretold to the Jews and to foreign kings that God’s judgment was imminent.
