Initial and Final Salvation

Initial and Final Salvation
This entry is part 1 of 3 in the series 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 that Jesus referred to as “fruit” (John 15:2) that can only be produced from “works“.  This is why God requires Christians to accept and implement Initial and Final Salvation, as it accommodates both “faith” + “works“.

Final Salvation also relates to running the “race that God has set before us” (1 Cor 9:24 and Heb 12:1-2) that attracts a “prize” if completed. Failure to “run the race” means the Christian will not achieve Final Salvation.

To obtain an overview of the above chart, it is suggested you watch this brief video presentation prior to reading the information that follows.

Final Salvation: Running the ‘Race’

This entry is part 2 of 3 in the series Initial and Final Salvation

The God of Creation who created the heavens and the Earth — together with everything in them (Isa 42:5) has set challenges for every person born upon the Earth to “seek Him while He can be found”:

Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: {7} Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.” 

(Isa 55:6-7)

Once modern-day individuals hear the Gospel message — 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 successfully finish.

PROOF that MOST Christians are NOT SAVED!

PROOF that MOST Christians are NOT SAVED
This entry is part 3 of 3 in the series Initial and Final Salvation

My recent advertising campaign using Google ads to promote my post titled Initial and Final Salvation has 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).

Spirit, Soul and Body — the Inner and Outer Man

This entry is part 1 of 6 in the series Spirit Soul and Body

Most Christians do not appreciate that they have their own personal Spirit which is contained within their physical Body termed the Outer Man. The Outer Man also contains their Inner Man that the scriptures refer to as the Soul.

The presence of both the human Spirit within the Soul is termed the “Inward Man” as shown in the scripture verse below. It is this invisible spiritual component of “mankind” that departs the deceased body to spend the remainder of eternity elsewhere.

…but though our OUTWARD MAN perish, yet the INWARD MAN is renewed day by day.”  

2 Corinthians 4:16

This article is the first one in a series that aims to help Christians understand more about their spiritual ‘organs’ that our Creator has given us—and from this, obtain a better understanding as to how the spirit world around us functions.

Spirit Soul and Body — The MIND

How our decision making processes operate
This entry is part 2 of 6 in the series Spirit Soul and Body

Part 1 of the Spirit, Soul and the Body series examined the spiritual ‘organs’ God has provided to us within our “Inner Man”. This article examines the MIND and how it relates to the other spiritual ‘organs’ and how they function in the controlling of the body.

This article covers the following topics:

  1. Mankind ‘s MIND
  2. Mankind’s MIND and our five physical senses
  3. Mankind’s MIND and the SOUL’s Influence on it
  4. Verses that refer exclusively to “the MIND <AND> MAN

This teaching aims to emphasize the spiritual level of understanding about how our bodies function. This is because Jesus said:

For to be CARNALLY MINDED is death; but to be SPIRITUALLY MINDED is life and peace.”

Rom 8:6
