This entry is part 3 of 6 in the series Initial and Final Salvation

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

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

and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,  2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith
Running a marathon race
“…and let us RUN WITH PATIENCE the RACE THAT IS SET BEFORE US, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith…”  (Heb 12:1-2)

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

Now to him that is of power to stablish you ACCORDING TO MY GOSPEL, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, ACCORDING TO THE REVELATION OF THE MYSTERY, which was kept secret since the world began,”

(Romans 16:25)

Parable of the Education System

Parable of the Education System
This entry is part 6 of 6 in the series Initial and Final Salvation

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: Running the ‘Race’

This entry is part 2 of 6 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.

Do you believe the One True Gospel?

Street Preacher
This entry is part 5 of 6 in the series Initial and Final Salvation

There are many ‘gospels’ being preached in the churches today that cannot Save! This article helps Christians to determine if the ‘gospel’ they have believed is the ONE True Gospel or one of many false gospels.

Characteristics of the One True Gospel

Firstly, there is ONLY One True Gospel that is able to save people from spending eternity in Hell – and that is the Apostle’ Paul’s Gospel that he referred to as “My Gospel”. 

The key characteristics about Paul’s Gospel are these:

  • Paul’s Gospel contains a “mystery”.  Every truly born-again Christian should understand what this “mystery” is and be able to share it with others. 

    Sadly, most Christians today don’t want to even talk about this requirement.  Instead, they believe their ‘preferred gospel’ rather than look for the ONE True Gospel.

  • Paul’s Gospel MUST be “obeyed”. 

    All modern ‘gospels’ require people to hear and believe that they are Saved.  Nothing else is required except maybe water baptism (Mark 16:16) Therefore, such preaching omits the need for any “obedience” to the One True Gospel, making such Christians “disobedient” towards God.

    Most modern false gospels also condemn the need for any “works” being necessary to secure Salvation.  Such claims are a lie if we use the Bible as our reference.

Initial and Final Salvation

Initial and Final Salvation
This entry is part 1 of 6 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 the Apostle Paul said we were “…created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them“.

Similarly, the spiritual “fruit” (John 15:2) that God the Father regularly inspects from Christians represented as the “branches” grafted into Jesus “the Vine” (John 15:5) can only be produced from “works” (James 2:26) that fulfill God the Father’s will (Matt 12:50) .  This is why God requires Christians to accept and implement Initial and Final Salvation, because ONLY Final Salvation accommodates both “faith” + “works” and the spiritual maturity that accompanies it.

Scripture verses that prove Final Salvation

Below are the key verses which prove that God requires His people to “ENDURE TO THE END to be Saved“:

“Receiving THE END OF YOUR FAITH, even THE SALVATION OF YOUR SOULS.”

1 Peter 1:9

The five things ALL Christians MUST DO TO THE END of their faith journey to be Saved are these:

1.   ENDURE TO THE END to be saved (Matt 10:22; Matt 24:13; Mark 13:13).

2.   HOLD FAST THE HOPE of eternal life TO THE END (Heb 3:6).

3.   HOLD THE BEGINNING OF OUR CONFIDENCE [obtained at Initial Salvation] steadfast TO THE END (or, Final Salvation – Heb 3:14).

4.   SHOW THE SAME DILIGENCE to the full assurance of hope TO THE END (Heb 6:11).

5.   OVERCOME AND KEEP CHRIST’S WORKS TO THE END (Rev 2:26).

With the above warnings established, I encourage you to to explore what Initial and Final Salvation represents, so that from this, you can “…work out your own Salvation in fear and trembling [to determine if your Salvation is secure or not].” (Phil 2:12)

Final Salvation

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.

PROOF that MOST Christians are NOT SAVED!

PROOF that MOST Christians are NOT SAVED
This entry is part 4 of 6 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

Location of our Spiritual Organs
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.
